I received several compliments on this dress - I felt like a million bucks in it!
Fit very well for the most part. It was a little roomy in the bust for me, and as a result the back portion of the lace shoulder yoke was a little baggy instead of staying taught across my shoulderblades, but my hair mostly covered that. I would say a larger bust would have no problem with this up to a point. Definitely hard to wear a bra with it due to the lace (I went without). Hit just at the knee for me. There was not a lot of give in the waist - I wore a SPANX shaper underneath to smooth out. For how stiff the waist was, the dress was really comfortable whether sitting, standing or dancing - did not feel restrictive in the slightest.

The gold detail on this dress is really beautiful
I rented this as a back up dress for a wedding in. May in Chicago. Had it been a bit warmer, I would have preferred this one even though the one I wore was amazing too. I would say it's better for more formal events, but get it if you like some shine. Will definitely rent again.

Beautiful lace dress.
This is a beautiful, well made dress. It fit snug and there is no give in the fabric. I am 5 foot six and the dress hit me at the the top of my knees. I'm also a small chested and it was just a tad big, but there isn't a lot of room around the chest. If you are large chested I don't see the dress working. Because of the sheer neckline you will need a strapless bra. I was able to make my strapless bra work but you may need one that sits lower on your back. I would have preferred to wear this dress with strappy black sandals and no stockings, but I have no tan,so I had to wear with dark sheer stockings I think the dress works with or without stockings. Overall, was a great dress.

Beautiful dress that was perfect for a work cocktail party!
I rented this dress my job's annual Christmas party which was held at a local museum. This dress was perfect for the semi-formal/cocktail vibe of the party. It fit great so I was able to move around and even dance a bit. My only con is that you have to be careful with the overlay so that it does not get caught in your jewelry. Overall it was great!

lovely details, peculiar fit
This is a beautiful dress and it arrived in mint condition. I found the sizing to be peculiar. Typically dresses are too large up top and tight in my hips. This dress fit me great up top but was way too loose from the waist down. I am an A cup so to anyone who is slightly busty I would be leery of renting this one. Again, beautiful dress just slightly off in fit.

great dress!
I got the 12 and 14 and the 12 was a little tight (especially when sitting down) but it was fine standing up and was what I ended up wearing. The 14 gave me more room but looked too big and was not as flattering as the 12. I am 5'9" and it went just above my knees which was great for an office holiday party. I would definitely recommend to others!

RTR gave me a great option for NYE! Can't wait to rent again!
I loved getting this in the Mail and was so excited to try RTR for the first time. The dress I had originally wanted was not available for New Years so this was my 2nd choice. The dress is very pretty and the size 6 fit well, I didn't even try the 8. I am a size 34dd and the bust was a bit restrictive, but fit. This dress has no give, but was true to size. I liked it, however felt it was pretty matronly, the top is a classic, shape, with sweetheart liner beneath the lace and the cap sleeves are lovely. I would have liked it more had it been more fitted on the bottom. I have long legs and looking at he photos of myself in the dress, I don't think it looks flattering at all. I know what works for my body and thought this would be perfect, but it was just too boxy on the bottom for me.

Very pretty fabric with subtle gilded details.
A little longer than I find flattering on me. It hit me around my knees. Loved the fabric but it did tend to twist around so I had to straighten myself often. Very pretty details though and I got a lot of compliments.

Beautiful neckline - a little big
The neckline of the dress was beautiful with the lace overlay and the gold shimmer in the black lace. It really made the dress. However, I ordered the 2 and the 4 and the 2 was even a bit too big and resulted in some bagginess throughout the bodice that made it look a little bit frumpy over all. I would have definitely been happier with the dress in a smaller size.

Great dress. Didn't end up wearing it, though.
I rented two dresses for a semi-formal party. This was a great dress. A size smaller would have been better. I would rent again for another occasion.

A wonderful work party with everyone dressed to the nines!
The backside was a bit roomier than I would've like it but the fabric is not stretchy I know it's impossible to fit everyone unless it's custom. It was such a beautiful dress, and I received so many compliments! Black hose and black heels completed the look!

This dress fit great. I am usually a 2-4 (5'6 and 120 lbs) and I wore a 2. It fit great. I wore this to a winter wedding and got a lot of compliments and felt very classy in it.

Perfect Dress for a Holiday Party
This was the perfect dress for the holiday party I attended. I received so many compliments. It did run a bit big, so I would have probably worn the 0 if I had it. It photographs very well too :)

This is a stunning dress, but unfortunately it runs small in the bust.
I ordered this dress last minute for an event. It is stunning, with beautiful detailing and boning. However, as it was a last minute order I couldn't get a larger backup size and the 10 was too small around the bust to zip up.

Not for the shorties
Like others said, it's not for curvy or hippy women. I got in my usual 0 with spanks, but it was very fitted - could not bend down at all. It is also a littttle bit long for us shorties. It's beautiful and different dress. It was fun to try out this style, but would not rent again for reasons mentioned above.

Pretty dress, slightly too much fabric in back
The dress was beautiful. Delicate lace, cute cap sleeve. However, it seemed like there was slightly too much fabric in the top of the back. It's hard to explain, but it did not lay entirely flat. Not a huge deal, but frustrating nonetheless.

The look on my boyfriend's face when he saw me!
This dress was so beautiful! I got so many compliments! It is a very tight fitting dress with no stretch, so if you have curvy hips and a booty be mindful of that. However, the structure of the dress plus the lace overlay are SUPER flattering, and I would definitely rent this dress again!

I wore this to the holiday party for my mom's company. Perfect for the occasion.
This dress is exactly as described by the other ladies. There is no give or stretch, so if you plan on eating or sitting down and have actual hips, and abs that are not perfectly ripped, you will want to go up a size. It's a bit big in the bust for me, as I only needed the size up for my hips. It was still beautiful, and I got compliments all night.

Not for my body type!
I received this dress when my original pick had arrived damaged. The stylist Juliette was super helpful and we picked this dress and it was over Overnighted. I've worn Monique before and loved it and thought I knew the fit but this fit was all wrong for me. It was snug across the hips and waist but baggy and large in the chest area. So while it is a beautiful dress it just isn't met for someone with my shape.

Beautiful dress, not for me
This dress is undoubtedly gorgeous! It just didn't fit my body type. I have very narrow shoulders and wide hips. On top it looked like a sack and on the bottom it was perfect, but I know an 8 still would've been too big on top and then tight on bottom. Might want top skip if you are Hourglass or Pear!

Beautiful dress. So many compliments!
Wore this piece to a friends wedding. I felt so elegant and I received a lot of compliments throughout the night. Comfortable enough and runs true to size. Might be weird sizing for women who have curvier hips.

Fun night out dancing with friends despite poor fitting dress.
This dress did not fit the way I expected. The lace looked cheap and the dress was overall too long. In addition, the lace at the top was quite itchy. Not impressed with this dress at all.

I got tons of compliments on the dress, but more importantly, felt amazing in it!
The boning in the dress makes it very fitted and flattering. It seems to be made for long torsos. Also, not much space in the bust - fine for me, but might smoosh some more voluptuous ladies. The lace was beautiful and in perfect condition.

Only complaint was the lace would snag on my jewelry. And sometimes the button behind neck would unbutton. But loved the fit and design for a fall wedding.

This is the second rental of this dress for me. I love it!!!! The black bodice has beautiful lace overlay with gold accents. It's so soft. I have paired it with bangles from the site as well as a large cuff. Both in gold.

This dress fits very funny in the stomach...it's a beautiful dress and cut, but the midsection was so baggy I had to pin it. Maybe go down a size

Lovely but too small
The dress is great and I love the splash of gold to up it from a standard LBD but while the size 2 I tried on fit great on the top it was simply too tight to wear across the hips. Made for someone with a little leaner bottom half.

the dress is beautiful
I rent it for my BD party, this dress fits true size but i'm a petite, so on the top it looked a little big. Dress it self looks gorgeous, i got a lot of compliments , unfortunately for me, it had a little hole on the back of the dress close to zipper side and since i was out of time for my party I had to go with that defect , it was not that visible but still i felt a little not comfy i thought every one noticed. Overall it looks great.

Perry Awards worthy dress (They are the Tony's of community Theatre)
I felt glamorous and could not bend over. Like all the other woman said, it is tight in the hips and the butt. I tried on my usual size of 4 and it did not even get halfway over my booty. Defiantly get a size up. The 6 worked but it was a snug fit and I was pulling it down a lot of the night. Also the back below the sheer is very low, I wore a black strapless so you could not really tell, but if you wore a nude bra; you would be able to see it.

I wanted this dress to work so bad!
I wish I could have worn this dress as it was my original pick. The 12 felt tight at the hips and ok at the top. The 14 felt fine at the hips but way to big up top. Not a dress for a pear shaped woman.

Really pretty - but not for short or short-torso'd gals
Beautiful, well made dress. Wish I could have worn it - but there was just too much fabric. Because I'm hourglass shaped, the fabric bunched between my hips and chest - not a cute look. Gals without curves will look gorge in this. Have to say that RTR couldn't have been more helpful in helping me exchange. Had a new (great!) dress within 24 hours. Got several wedding guests to sign up for RTR!
