Loved this dress, though a little loose on me. I could have gone with a size 2.

Pros a beautiful back detail.

Overall, nice dress, but blah!

The dress definitely runs true to size, however I should have sized down because I'm not exactly a 6. It was overall nice, but really lacked pizazz and was entirely too long to be remotely sexy.

Lace detail at neckline is very flattering!

Overall, I really liked this dress! You can't go wrong with navy blue, the open back is sexy, and the lace at the neckline is very pretty. I wore a sticky backless bra thing, and that worked out fine. I wore this in Mexico and didn't get hot - the material breathes well. The only weird thing was that the lace overlay seemed a little stretched out in the stomach/hip area so it looked just a tiny bit saggy from the side. (Honestly, it was barely noticeable, but it just bothered me a little.) Highly recommend it!!

Very pretty and comfortable

It fit perfectly. Did not get as many compliments as I have for other RTR dresses but I loved it. It was comfortable and looked just like the picture.

Awesome back

This was great for a rehearsal dinner. The back is by far the coolest part. I wasn't able to wear a bra, which was ok but would have preferred the front to be slightly tighter. It's navy but appears black.

Pretty Dress! Doesn't fit like the model pic

I liked this dress but it fit me very differently than the model in the picture. It fit me a lot longer (true knee length) and the straps cross a lot higher on the back (not the middle) overall glad I rented it

Great dress to dance in!

This dress was beautiful! The detailing on the front and the back were so unique. It was very comfortable to wear. However, I couldn't figure out how to get my bra from showing in the front and the fabric around the stomach was loose but not to noticeable. Overall, I recommend this dress!

Fun dress, little stretched out through the stomach. The back was stunning though.

The 4 fit better through the body but because I have a more muscular back and a wider rib cadge, the straps on the size 4 cut in. Only other con is that the sweetheart top under the lace kept sliding down, so I had to keep adjusting that. Overall it was comfortable, very pretty and perfect for a summer wedding.

Very sexy dress

I used this as a backup for a rehearsal dinner, I didn't end up wearing it because I thought it was a little too bare in the back, and I had something else more conservative. However - I was an exceptional dress, the length and the high collar off set the bare back. My only issue is I can't go bra-less in front of in laws, would be perfect for a weekend get away with no family!

This dress is pretty and fits true to size, but the neck was a bit high for me and I decided not to wear it. The back is gorgeous!

INCREDIBLE!!

This dress was absolutely amazing! I didn't want to return it! I am between a size 10-12 and I wore the 10 comfortably. It is a bit longer (just below my knee) than what is shown on the model. It was modest yet sexy, loved this dress!

Runs large!

I could have definitely used a smaller size in this dress, it runs large! The only reason I wore it was because the other options were worse. I was able to wear a backless, strapless bra. The back is definitely the best part of the dress, however, the straps sit higher on the back than shown on the model. Also, the front of the dress, while covered in lace, still shows quite a bit of cleavage. Not my favorite dress, but got the job done in a pinch.

Beautiful & perfect for a hot Charleston wedding

The dress fit perfectly-- great length for tall girls & the back was beautiful. Not tight but shaped perfectly. The fabric was also great for hot humid weather, and held up great art night. Would absolutely rent again!

Perfect fit with an elegant touch

This dress was elegant yet incredibly comfortable and easy to wear. I have a curvy and athletic figure and did not have any problem with cut or fit! The incredible lace neck and cross back were my favorite parts of the dress! I would rent it again in a heart beat!

Can dress it up or down!

Versatile dress in that it can be more formal or casual depending on your accessories, shoes, and hairstyle. Great material and flattering for showing off your arms and shoulders. Longer in length for those that want something that isn't short.

Wedding in the Berkshires

Ordered a size 6 and 8. The 8 fit like a glove, and I felt very confident in this dress! No need for a bra. A bit hard to get into dress, with the cris-cross straps. Over all, a fun and flattering dress. *My size 6 had a strong smell of b.o. under the arms:(

Overall good fit. A little large in the stomach/waist area and almost a little too long but still looked great and I got so many compliments. I probably could have worn the 2!

This dress was perfect for a wedding. It's basically backless, but I had no trouble going bra less - no one could tell due to the great lining and structure. Wish I owned this dress! Dress fits true to size.

Comfort with a touch of allure - loved it!

This was a great easy-going dress for a wedding - it wasn't a statement dress, but I did receive a lot of compliments. I didn't wear a bra because of the back of this dress so my only complaint is that the 6 was a bit big for my chest and thus the support wasn't what it could be to maximize the look of the dress on me. Otherwise, I thought it was fun, flirty, and easy to dance in - perfect for how I roll at weddings.

Nanette Lepore

Beautiful dress! My backup size (size 6) was unavailable, so I wore the size 8 even though it was a little big. Definitely get a size down for your backup. I wore a strapless bra, but you could easily wear it without one. I rented the Kendra Scott Rose Quartz Skylar earrings to go along with it which looked great.

Beautifully detailed dress. Fit true to size and was stretchy enough to give a little post dinner and drinks. I have a small chest and I didn't need to wear a bra.

Lacy dress

I typically wear size 4 but this dress was a little snug. This dress was prefect for my event but the pictures online make it appear fancier than it actually is. The dress is padded just enough so that I did not have to wear a bra. Overall, I was very happy with the dress and received many compliments.

Lovely dress

I rented three dresses to choose from for a winter wedding I attended. This was the best looking on. Very flattering in the midsection. The back of the dress received compliments all night, because of the strapping open back look.

Beautiful design, sexy back, and true to size. Great for awards dinner!

Great for Florida winter wedding

I was worried that I wouldn't fit in the 12 and there weren't any backup sizes but I just went for it and I'm glad I did. I have an athletic build, broad shoulders and big boobs but it was such a comfortable dress and I danced all night in it. No issues at all!

Great style

I thought I would wear the 12 but I chose the 10 instead in order to get away with not wearing a bra. It fit better from my neck to my chest and it wasn't tight elsewhere. However, the straps in the back didn't say put/spread out on me so they didn't look as pretty. I think the 12 would've helped them be looser on my back but then the dress hung too low in the front. It also can be tight around your neck. I don't think this dress is for someone with broad shoulders. But overall I loved the dress and received lots of compliments.

I love the back of this dress!

Pro-true fit, comfortable, lacy, and great back! Con-None! I always get two sizes: 0 or 2. I ended up wearing the size 0, which was more fitting to my body and wasn't too tight. Fits comfortably. Strapless bra is a must, especially with the style of the back. I wore this to a wedding and I loved it! Easy to wear and it can be used for any event.

Great Dress!

Very comfortable, flattering fit. I ordered the size I normally wear and it fit perfect. There is one thing to note though- this is great only if you're not a busty gal. Can't wear a regular bra or strapless with this so it's either a stick-on front only bra or no bra at all. Overall for a short, petit person who is an A or B cup it's great.
