I was about to give up on RTR until I got this dress.
I've rented several dresses from RTR and nothing has made me feel special, nothing has garnered compliments until this dress. I had several people tell me how lovely it was and someone even asked where I got it. It was perfect, lovely. As someone else has stated, you cannot wear a bra with this dress due to the open keyhole back. The good news is that the top is lose so going bra less isn't noticeable. The bad news is that the inside slip cannot be adjusted and it hangs a little low showing way too much side boob. I'd vote for double sided tape with this dress. In regards to length I got the regular. I'm 5'4 and wore 3" heels and thought it was perfect. I wish I could keep this dress though I don't know where I would wear it to as dressy occasions are few and far between for me. This dress is a winner.

Not for tall girls
I ordered the long version on this dress, and it didn't even hit the floor when I was barefoot. The dress was very beautiful otherwise, the open back was very pretty, but is not meant for tall girls!

This dress looks amazing on! The lace is so pretty and the open back is stunning!
This dress turned out to be one of my best rentals from RTR! It looked like it was made for me. The only slight issue I had with it was that it was a little short. I had read reviews saying this was the case for many of them, but being short I didn't think it would be an issue. To my surprise, it was! All in all it worked out and the dress landed just above my ankles (maybe that is where they are supposed to land?) and I wore heels you just got to see them all instead of just a little. I LOVED wearing this dress!

Honestly, I really liked the dress. Classy, interested and lightweight.
Only problem, it runs way, way too small. I normally wear a 6 and it really was too short to wear with any heels even if it did fit.

LOVE
Love this dress - rented it as my backup but kicking myself for not just planning on it from the get go. Simple and stunning and super comfortable to wear. I rented the long (I'm 5'6") because the regular wasn't available and with 4" heels it was still a bit too long but held it up when I walked.

Classy and elegant
I saw this dress on a friend at a wedding and loved it. I needed a dress for un upcoming fundraiser and thought this would be prefect. It does run on the smaller side and if you're tall you'll need the long length. I'm 5'8" and the long fit me perfect with a shorter heel. The only bummer about this dress was the lace was ripped so I couldn't wear it and had to quickly grab something from my closet. If you're going to be dancing and moving a lot it is a little more restrictive but it's such an elegant and classy dress. I loved the style, wish I could have worn it.

Most complements ever!!
As other reviews have stated this dress is a little snug around the hip/bottom area. This was the case for both the size 2 and 4 for me. That's just the fit. The size 2 fit perfectly! I was debating between the average length and long length ultimately going with the average. My heels were 2 1/2 inches and my shoes were visible which was fine by me. Any higher heels you would definitely want the long length. I have never received so many compliments in my life wearing a dress. Everyone said how elegant and flattering it was. I fell in love with this dress!!!!

Pretty dress
I'm petite usually a 00. The dress is very pretty & classy. The top was a bit big but definitely workable. Love the shape of skirt and was very flattering. I found the 38 regular perfect length for me with 4 inch heels. I'm 5 feet and 98 pounds.

Perfect for at work gala.
I needed a formal dress for an at work gala fundraiser and this dress was a great choice for a classic look with amazing all over lace. The dress is true to size but had very little wiggle room if you plan to dance (I did not). I was also 3 months pregnant here so that may have added to the no wiggle room. This dress would also be a great choice for cold weather months.

The back of this dress is what makes it unique and sexy.
This dress was comfortable and easy to wear. Because it covers most of your skin, it is great if you are not quite as fit or party ready as you want to be come event day. My only complaint is that even the long size is too short. I am 5 foot 8 and I had to wear flats. I've had this issue with all the RTR dresses I have worn. I've always ordered the long version and have always had to wear flats.

The 38L was much too tight so I wore the 40L. I liked the way the dress was fitted but not overtly sexy and I received many compliments throughout the night!

Elegant, glamorous, showstopper, formal perfection
This dress is absolutely incredible and so chic and elegant. I was singled out at the event I attended by a gorgeous woman who called it a "showstopper." It fit perfectly, with just the right amount of hug through the hips to make it a little sexy, and constructed beautifully in eye-catching black lace. There dress has a subtle open back, so be aware you'll need a backless bra. I would rent this dress again and again. Rent it and be prepared for the compliments to pour in!

Elegant, unique, flattering with a hint of sexy.
I LOVED the dress. They did not have my size in stock so I wore one up and it still was flattering! It was a little bit big so I can imagine that the right size would have been PERFECT! It hugs you at all the right spots and really emphasizes your shape by cinching at the waist. The open back gives the dress that small sex appeal without coming off trashy. Truly a unique dress that you will receive a lot of compliments in. My only complaint was that it was too short - I ordered the long and it was just barely long enough to wear with 4 inch heels (Im 5'7")

Beautiful, dramatic dress
This dress runs very small. I could pull it on, but could not zip it up over my hips. Admittedly, I do have generous hips. The top fit just perfectly. This was an At Home Try On dress. I don't have an occasion to wear it, but I really wish I did, so I could rent it in a 42R. The black lace is stunning. The slightly oversized nature of the lace makes it dramatic. The lace does not itch, so it would be comfortable to wear all evening. Even in a size too small, the dress hugged the lower half of my body in a wonderful way.

This is a great dress if you want a little arm coverage. Fit really well and I received many compements. It was a little worn at the back zipper but because of the color it wasn't really too obvious.

Too tight in the hips and thighs.
I am 5'5" and weigh 114lbs and neither the 40R nor the 42R fit me very well. From your waist to right above your knees the dress hugs your body, and I just didn't like the way it hugged mine.

Tight at the hips
Unfortunately this dress did not fit me in either size I received it in. It was too tight in the hip area and too loose in the bust area. It is a mermaid dress, but you can not tell by the picture. It is a very pretty dress and I was very upset it did not work out. Luckily I was able to order another dress that arrived the very next day!

LOVED this dress!
I rented this dress for a corporate black tie event and i was sad to give it back! The dress was very flattering on my body type and it fit perfectly (length too!) I am 5'3, pear shaped, and a very small chest, which worked out for this dress as the top was loose fitting. The dress was definitely a little tight in the hip area but the fabric had a little give and was still comfortable. I wish I had a picture of the back of the dress, but the open back was stunning. I received so many compliments on this dress, I would definitely rent again. I wore the Badgley Mischka Luminosity Pearl Earrings with this dress and they were the perfect accessory!

You look stunning! After I saw your picture, I was sold on the dress. I'm renting for a black tie wedding and cannot wait!

Comfy and looks great
I'm usually a true dress size 4 but the 44R ran a little small in the hips. This made it a little hard for me to walk without holding my dress up over my heels. Regardless, it was an overall comfy fit and perfect for the formal dinner I wore it to. I received many compliments.

PERFECT! I rented this dress for Barrister's Ball and couldn't be happier!!
The dress was a perfect fit and I absolutely loved it!! BUT, it was too short. I wore a 'long' and I still was only able to wear flats. It says the model is 5'10" and it looks long enough on her in the pictures, but I am 5'7" and it was almost too short for me. Other than that, it was perfect! It was beautiful and very comfortable. It is fitted through the waist and thighs and it complemented my figure well. I would recommend this dress!! But just watch out for the length! :)

Perfection.
Beautiful dress that came free with endless compliments. I went up a size so it would be easier to move in, but my actual size was very right around the legs. If you want the sleek look, wear your true size. If you want to dance all night and stuff your face like me, go up one! It's absolutely stunning and I was sad to return it. Perfect if you're more modest or looking for a classy dress!

The dress was even more stunning in person. I highly recommend this for any formal event.
I'm 5"8' and 125 lbs and the 40L (2 long) fit me perfectly. I wore 3 inch heels and the dress was a tad bit shorter than I would have liked. If you are over 5"6' and you plan on wearing a heel over 3", I definitely recommend getting the long.

I rented this dress for a consular ball. It was perfect!
This dress is very elegant. It's classic, not overly sexy. Yet, the back of the dress shows a little skin. The way it forms on the hips is flattering and figure-revealing. I don't know that any picture can really show just how classic the dress it, but it's a definite winner.

Beautiful dress. Received a lot of compliments on it, felt pretty. Dress was extremely comfortable and the material was semi giving which made it great. Dress does show if you a have a tiny belly so I do recommend a supportive undergarment to help keep your belly flat. Overall LOVED this dress

Loved this dress!
I rented this dress for a formal event and had a great experience. While the dress is fitted on the bottom it was not uncomfortable or constricting. I wasn't busting any crazy moves at the end of the night on the dance floor - but I was still able to dance.The sleeves made me feel a little better about my pale, non-toned winter arms! The dress is open in the back (quick scramble for a stick-on bra required). It would be noticeable to wear a normal bra and the top is lose without any structure. I actually had this sent to a hotel out of town and brought one pair of shoes to go with it. They were a little too tall (3.5") and I thought it made the dress a little too short - but that's the only thing I'd do differently. I would absolutely rent this dress again, it seemed like the right balance of elegance, timelessness and comfort.

Sophisticated & Sexy
I wore this stunning dress to a black tie wedding I attended in Boston. This dress is gorgeous - pictures do not do it justice. I received endless compliments all night on how stunning I looked. My husband's jaw hit the floor when he saw me - doesn't get better than that! The open back gave it just the right touch of sex appeal without being inappropriate. I felt beautiful and comfortable the whole night. The 44r was the perfect fit through my hips and thighs and still gave me enough room to dance all night. The length was a bit long so I had to go with a 4" heel but I expected that as I'm quite petite. I would definitely recommend this dress and would happily rent it again. Loved this dress and was sad to send it back!

This dress fits perfectly, really shows the shape of your body. I was hoping the dress would have been a little longer than it was but it still worked out perfectly.. I am 5'7" and the dress just barely hit the floor.. I wore 3" heals and it worked out just fine. This dress is gorgeous, you will be so happy!

I felt so glamorous!
I have never felt more beautiful in my life! And I got so many compliments from complete strangers! The dress does run a little small, so if I had the choice I would have liked to wear the 42R as the 40R was still a bit tight around my hips! The lace is so stunning, but looks worn especially at the bottom (it was a bit fuzzy) from dragging on the floor. I loved the open back. This dress is super easy to wear, and very comfortable! Rent it! You won't regret it!

I am pear shaped, so it was a little tight on my ass, but it fit nicely.
