SO many compliments on this dress! Simple and sexy.
This dress was amazing!! It was a great fit. Sexy because of the low cut but still simple and classic. I love this dress and want to buy it!

This dress is a show stopper. Very sexy but elegant.
I am 5'2 and 120 lb I am a 32dd I ordered a 2R . The top of the dress fit great no bra needed it held everything in very nicely. The bottom was puffy which I was okay with but I will say it made my butt look bigger then it is. And beware it is a very low cut bust so if you are shy you may not feel comfortable.

Classic elegance with a flirty touch
I'm a tall woman who was looking for something modest but flirty to wear to a winter wedding and this dress nailed it! The low cut front was showing but perfectly off set by long hemline. What was hard to see in the model's photos is that the dress' slip is a little short, but nothing that made me feel exposed. I will note the lace fabric is pretty heavy, so would recommend NOT wearing it to a warm event. Overall I would completely rent this dress again!

Pretty, But Very Revealing
I liked the dress but felt self conscious wearing it to a wedding because of the low cut.

Too large
The 10R was too large. my backup was a 8R, but the dress was no longer available for my order so I had to pick another dress. This dress is heavy and is a great quality dress... it just runs very large.

This dress was definitely memorable!
The dress runs large on the top! I am a 34C with a small waist - I normally wear a 4 but the top of the 4 that I ordered was too big. I called RTR in a panic since I had ordered a 4 and a 6 and they overnighted a 2 to me! The top will definitely require a lot of tape so you can move around and sit but it's worth it since the dress is such a showstopper. I'm 5'3" so the midi length was a little long on me, but I'm used to that and it didn't really take away from the overall look. The main con is that there's a weird seam along the back of the skirt that gives it a lot of volume right around your butt so if you're self conscious of that area it may not be ideal.

Perfect Little Black Dress!
I'm 6' and this dress worked great. Outside layer hit at my knees while the inner layer went to about my mid thigh. Gapped a little on the neckline as I wear a B-cup and this dress is meant for bustier women.

Too much cleavage
This dress is beautiful, and the quality is great. That being said, the cleavage was just too much for me. I still wore it and had a small lace insert to cover some of the cleavage, which did the trick.

Get a million compliments while being comfortable
I LOVED this dress and would absolutely rent again.Perfect for a winter wedding. It fits fairly true to size maybe slightly more on the bigger side. I attempted to use stick cups but felt it wasn't needed because the dress holds your chest in enough. I loved the length but the hit of sexy. Great dress!

I received compliments on this dress all night. The details make this dress stand out in a crowd.
This dress has a pretty lace from top to bottom. The v-neck is very deep; it went well below where my bra would have gone. Could be a problem for women with larger chests, but it was perfect for me. There is a short lining to the skirt so a good portion of the lace has a 'peekaboo' effect. The hips are accentuated and the dress has pockets, which made it really comfortable for eating, drinking and dancing. The waistband is tight...so just be warned. Everyone at the wedding I was at kept asking about the dress. I wish I could purchase!

Gorgeous and easy dress!
Great silhouette that is sexy but forgiving. Be warned - the v is definitely plunging and is lower cut than it looks in the picture, but the length of the dress and the nice, thick fabric keep it classy. I felt very elegant and got lots of compliments.

LOVE THIS DRESS!
Ok, so as I think a few other renters mentioned, this dress is a major pain in the ass to zip up, but that's legit my only complaint. It's PERFECT. I'm a 36A and I felt comfortable all night without a bra. I received so many compliments and felt like a million bucks all night. It's a one time wear dress, since it's such a showstopper, but I would rent again in a heartbeat.

The material/lace is nice and heavy. Fit is true to size. I'm a 34B and the top was snug. Wouldn't recommend for bigger busts.

Beautiful, but runs big
I wear an 8 usually but order a size up due to large chest and wide rib cage, however this ran a little big. Wish I would have ordered one size down. Dress is beautifully made, but a little more cleavage than I had expected, tape was a must to keep the ladies in! Just wish it had fit a little more snug.

Felt great in this classy, yet sexy dress!
Loved it! I was nervous because my backup size 4 was not available, but it fit great! My only complaint is that I'm much smaller on top, bigger on the bottom, so the liner underneath was a little tight and kept riding up all night when dancing. The material is thick and heavy, but looks beautiful. I am very small chested, but it was tight enough so I was not worried. I am shorter 5'3 so the dress hit right above my ankles, not higher like on the model. Overall, I was very happy with this rental!

Stunning dress!
I absolutely loved his dress, I wore it to an orchestra gala. It's one of my favorite rentals to date. The quality of the dress was exceptional and it fit me like a glove. A little racy in the front but the length and coverage in the back didn't make me feel uncomfortable. I don't have much of a chest so I had no need for support or a bra, not sure how that would fit for ladies a little more blessed in that region. Beautiful dress you won't regret this one!

I got engaged in this dress so I will love it forever. I got compliments all night. It was the perfect dress. I'm 5'7.5, 135 lbs and ordered the 4 and 6. I didn't even bother trying the 6 on. The 4 fit well, except the top was a little big. I didn't want to take it off or return it. Lovely dress!

Favorite rental EVER!!
This is hands down my favorite rental! After reading other reviews I was a little worried the 8R would be too small but it fit perfectly. I'm 5'10", approximately 160 lbs. This dress camouflaged any extra bumps and rolls. The zipper was really tough to get up around the waist because the fabric is really thick but with some help from my husband, we got it zipped. I'm pretty small chested so I didn't need any tape to help this stay in place. It was incredibly comfortable and I wasn't concerned one bit about having a wardrobe malfunction. The short skirt under the lace stayed in place even with spanx and didn't ride up. And the pockets are an added bonus! Wish I could own this dress!

I felt comfortable and sexy at a winter wedding.
I wore this dress to a winter wedding in Suncadia, WA. Overall this dress was amazing and I got compliments on it all night long. My only "con" to report is that the zipper is extremely difficult to zip up. I had to recruit two people to get me into it. Once on, however, and body tape added to the top, I was good to. I felt comfortable, sexy, and was able to dance the night away. I would definitely recommend this dress to a friend, but would warn them about the zipper issues.

Well fitted, sexy but classy dress!!
Fits pretty true to size! I was really happy with the quality of the dress- the lace is polished and very classy! Would definitely recommend using fashion tape to tape the 'girls' in, especially if you have a larger chest. Got many compliments on this dress- perfect for a formal winter event!!

Dress was as promised!
I ordered two dresses, additions sizes of each, and the 10R fit almost perfect. The size 8 would have been absolutely perfect but wasn't available - with dress tape it was amazing and I felt like I could move and eat and drink what I wanted - LOL!!!! Everything about RTR is great and this dress didn't fail.

Sexy LBD
I got so many compliments on this dress. It was very low cut, so no bra would work and the lining did hike up a bit when I walked. Otherwise, I loved it and I was happy with this choice!

Princess dress
The dress was tough to zip over the waistband between the skirt and bodice, but after getting over that, easy to zip rest of the way. Outside of that, the dress was an amazing fit, and made me feel like a princess. I got a ton of compliments and was bummed to have to send it back! One warning, however, I am on the verge of a B cup, and wouldn't have felt appropriate wearing it (to a wedding) with a larger chest.

Gorgeous!
I rented this for a black tie wedding, and although it did draw a lot of attention to "the girls",the rest of the dress made me feel comfortable and classy enough to wear. I felt awesome and got compliments on the dress all night- would definitely rent again. Dress tape helps but not a necessity!

Fit true to size. Very deep neckline, used fabric tape to keep it in place. Flairs out a lot at the hips with the lace top layer. Loved that it had pockets! Great heavy material and fun to dance in! Got compliments all night!

Loved the lace bottom and texture of the gown.
I ordered a 4 and a 6 and I squeezed into the 4 as the 6 was slightly large. I have a large chest so the 4 was tight in that area, but I received compliments all night and I loved the cut of the gown.

Loved this dress!
I loved this dress, I normally wear a size 4, but only a 2 was available, it was tighter but not terrible. I'm smaller busted so I'm glad I went down a size, I still had to use fashion tape to secure the top since it is very low cut. I loved the way this dress looked though, it was beautiful and I got so many compliments! I didn't want to send it back! The only issue I had was the zipper was very tough, but we got it.

Incredible dress!
I'm between a size 6 and 8, and the 6 fit perfectly. Lace is very heavy, the bottom the dress "poufs" out a bit at the hips, but top fit so well it didn't bother me. Be prepared to use tape to secure chest, no bra that I could find would work. Absolutely incredible dress. I felt amazing in it, and the first RTR dress that I was really sad to return. Would rent again in a heartbeat!

Sexy, yet very elegant
This dress fit perfectly! Definitely runs true to size. I have a bigger chest (32DD), so fashion tape is an absolute must. I wish the slip was a little more form fitting, but it still worked. Overall very comfortable, sexy, elegant, and unique. I received so many compliments on this dress! I I highly recommend!

Poofy in the hips.
I didn't end up wearing this dress. I loved the fit at the top (very plunging) and I loved the quality of the fabric. In the picture, you can't really tell, but when you put it on, the dress really poofs out at the hips. I have a true hourglass shape and I found the look unflattering.

The dress is beautiful and perfect for a fall wedding!
I wore this dress to a wedding in mid-October. The fabric is thick so it was perfect for the mixed weather (sunny, then rain shower, then cool at night). It it very low cut so I would suggest body tape if you have anything over an A cup. But otherwise it was so comfortable! The full skirt made it fun to dance in too! I received sooo many compliments.
