Wore this dress to the Academy of Country Music Awards. It was gorgeous! Perfect attire!
Size worn: 14
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
You need to have a bigger chest to ensure that this dress stays "up" during your event. Be very cognizant of the fact that the lace and button on the back will pop open if you're broad-shouldered and seated. It was also a bit tight to sit down in. It looked really great standing though... Also keep in mind that it's a LONG dress - it hit me right at the knees.

I rented this for a pre New Year's Eve black tie optional affair. Fit great, true to size. The sheer lace has a great flattering effect & makes this dress very versatile.

Received a ton of compliments on this gorgeous, glam dress!
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I rented this for a friend's fabulous 30th birthday party in mid-December. I rented the 6 and 8 as a backup. The 8 fit ok, but wasn't as flattering as the 6. It also had a tear in the lace overlay on the side, which was annoying. This is the kind of dress you'd want to fit really snugly. The boning helps keep the structure, but at the same time, it was a bit constricting. The 6 looked BOMB on me, but to be honest, I could barely breathe. I was certainly not inclined to eat anything (not the best sit down dinner dress). I have wide shoulders and ribcage, but this dress helped minimize the appearance. Waist down, this dress was a breeze to wear (yay for narrow hips). Didn't have to wear a bra with it. Wore Wolford black thigh high tights to avoid having to deal with extra layers. Paired it with crazy high gold-beaded peeptoe platform stilettos and the rentable INGE CHRISTOPHER Corsica Scale Clutch. I received a ton of compliments from the guys and girls all night! Despite the discomfort, I loved this dress. It's wonderful for a "stand up"-heavy cocktail event.

Beautiful dress, not so beautiful fit!
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
The dress was really beautiful but i thought the fit was terrible. I am pretty consistent with size four dresses, and the 4 in this was extremely tight around my hips and ribs, but loose in the waist. I wore the 6, which was still tight across my hips (and I don't think I have large hips, but who knows) but better around my ribcage. The fabric around the waist was SO loose, though. From a profile view, I looked pregnant because it just poofed out in the wrong area. The fabric does not stretch at all, so if the dress fits as if it was made for you... you will look stunning! But be prepared to have it be tight/loose in the hips/waist/chest, depending upon your body type. Overall though, I got so many compliments on the dress and it was perfect against the snowy/Christmas-y backdrop.

Gorgeous Gown!!!
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
I absolutely loved this dress. It was perfect for the rehearsal dinner I attended. Very fancy and elegant (something Blair Waldorf would wear). I would definitely recommend it. However, it is very fitted at the waist but it gives you an hourglass fit. I am usually a size 4 and that's what I ordered, I barely got in the dress (even with spanx) I would recommend sizing up. The gold lace isn't super bright, more of an olive golden color. Overall, I loved the dress.

The lace overlay was just the right touch. Great length and fit great. Used fashion tape to hold the strapless in place and it was perfect! Worn with a bracelet that RTR sent me, no name though. No necklace needed, just some fun earrings and heels!

This dress is so much more beautiful in person, and the fit is incredibly slimming. I received tons of compliments, and really felt great wearing it. The material has no stretch, or give, but it was still very comfortable. I usually wear a 4, but I did wear this in the 2, and it just barely fit.

This fit me everywhere except for my bust area. I had to wear a minimizer bra underneath it and it definitely didn't look good. I actually decided against this dress at the last moment, because I couldn't sit down in it without my breathing being restricted.

Wasn't able to wear it...
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I usually wear a 6 so I rented the 6 and 8. I couldn't get the 6 anywhere close to on and the 8 barely zipped. I couldn't wear it - wouldn't have been able to sit. It is a beautiful dress and I love the fabric, but I definitely recommend sizing up (one or two) because there isn't any stretch.

I am short (barely 5'2) and so I thought it was a little on the longer side...hit right at the bottom of my knee. If I owned this i would have it hemmed an inch or so.

This dress was disappointing. It was I'll fitting and unflattering. The chest and bust area was far too large, while the hip was beyond tight. I couldn't even walk. I ended up wearing my back up dress to the event. Not well suited for girls with any curves.

Didn't get to wear it

Overall fit: True to Size

Tried it on, it fit well everywhere except my butt. Apparently a size 6 means you aren't suppose to have a butt, but it did leave ample room for my bust area, which is just as not flat as my backside. I wouldn't have been able to sit in it. Such a beautiful dress, even though it didn't fit properly.

Beautiful dress, bad fit.
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I was so disappointed in the fit of this dress. The fabric itself is gorgeous, but the fit was all off. I am usually a 6, which was a little tight in the bust, but worse was how the fabric bunched up in the hip/waist area. I hoped that the 8 would work better but then it was just baggy in the midsection. The bottom of the dress was also pulling so I felt maybe the layers were not aligned properly.

Tons of compliments, hard to move in
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I wore this dress to back-to-back holiday parties on a Friday and a Saturday, and got a ton of compliments on both occasions. It looked great and fit well. I felt beautiful, and was glad I chose it. However, the dress has absolutely no stretch, and came almost to my knees, making it hard to move in. At the first party the slit seam tore a little, but that fortunately was not noticeable. Then, at the end of the second night when I was getting into my husband's (very low-to-the-ground 2-seater sports) car, the dress completely ripped up the back seam, all the way up, almost to my tailbone. Fortunately I was wearing a coat and was done for the night. Glad I rented this one, and hadn't paid full-price! This is NOT the dress to wear to an event with dancing.

Perfect for a work holiday party!
Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I thought the dress was great for a work holiday party. For a sexy night out on the town, it's probably not short or form-fitting enough. I was surprised that the zero ran on the larger side for me. It fit fine in the bust area, but the waist was too big and it ended up bunching up a bit in the front, as another reviewer noted. The material is also more lace and more demure than I had expected. Not so much sparkly or iridescent. Overall I was pleased with the dress, but not ecstatic. I have ones in my closet that are a better fit.

Not true to size, not a stunner.
Size worn: 12
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress did not fit me the best. I was able to wear it, but it was too big in the waist, too tight in the bust and thighs. The fact that the lace overlay was stretchy hid the fact the sheath was a bit tight. I was not uncomfortable, but knew I could not go up a size because then the waist would have been huge. The lace overlay is sewn to the sheath at the bottom of the black seam that runs down the front of the dress. Unless the sheath and lace overlay are PERFECTLY lined up, the lace overly appears to droop down and bulge at the hemline. Any amount of walking causes the two to become misalinged and the bulge to appear. I was not very happy with this dress and wished I had ordered a second style along with it so I would have had an option.

Classy dress
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I think this dress is great for a formal affair, it brushed barely above my knees which was perfect - since it was a formal affair. It's tight around the ribs and looser around the bottom - almost slightly flares out if that makes any sense. I probably should have worn the 0, but it was so tight with a bra - the rest of it fit better then the 2 though. All in all classy, fabulous dress - even with the fit being a bit odd.

Beautiful and sophisticated
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
This dress was beautiful. I am busty and typically wear a 6, but needed the 8 in this dress. It fit snugly, but not too tight. My only minor complaint is that the lace is not as delicate as it appears in the photo. The black background portion is somewhat like a fishnet and it is a little bit scratchy, but not so much that it made me uncomfortable. Be warned that you cannot wear a bra with this dress though. The solid portion dips much too low in the back to be able to wear one.

Not meant for the 5'4 and under ladies
Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I was so upset that this dress didn't work out! It's an absolutely beautiful dress but it was way too long on me. I'm 5'4 and it came to my knees but the lace overlay made it appear below my knees. I rented a 2 and 4, the two was too tight on my hips and I knew I'd be dancing so I tried the 4 instead. That was a little boxy. If you are 5'5+ I'd say give it a shot because it's very pretty but anyone below that it can look a little frumpy.

It fit true to size. You do need a stick-on bra, though, because I was worried that a strapless bra would ride up in the back.
