Pretty. Not too dressy not too casual
Perfect for wedding. Love the pockets. So many compliments. Had to use fabric tape to keep the girls in but sexy and sophisticated all in one.

Your Nip May Slip!
I felt like Charlotte York for the night. It was the most magical dress that I've rented yet. The fabric was heavy and thick, but I didn't overhear at this summer wedding. You could feel the quality while wearing this dress. I have size 34B breasts and while sitting, the top would king if scrunch so you could see the inside of the dress/my nip. I'd suggest some double sided tape if you have a smaller chest. I think if you have anything larger you should be able to fill out the top just fine. I was worried I'd get swallowed with the teacup length (I'm 5'4"), but it was perfect with some heels! Be prepared to have random people walk up and compliment you. You'll feel like a princess!

Amazing and beautiful dress would absolutely wear it again.
I wore the 6 but wish I had worn the 4 which was not available that weekend. I made the 6 work but have fashion tape handy because the deep V is quite dramatic and you would not want any fashion mishaps. The zipper was a bit difficult and the dress was kind of heavy but the lace was beautiful and I love the dress overall.

Perfect dress for black tie wedding!!
Fit perfectly! I was afraid the chest would be too low cut but it covers enough to not look too scandalous! Loved it!

Sexy & Classy
I loved this dress! If you're concerned with the amount of chest shown, I recommend going one size up. The 4 fit my shoulders and back much better than the 6, but also showed much more chest because it was pulled back tighter. While the 6 was more loose in the chest, it covered me up slightly more. I used fashion tape for an extra layer of security, but didn't necessarily need it.

Loved this flirty dress for a winter wedding this past December. I was way too self conscious regarding my breasts popping out (even with tap), I wore a scarf all night, I don't know why because I freaking loved this dress so much!

Extremely comfortable!
This dress was great! The material is a bit thick but extremely comfortable. There are pockets in the dress which is another plus. Very deep V neck as you can see, but I didn't mind it so much. I received many compliments. Fits true to size.

This dress was so comfortable. It runs a little large and I was glad I ordered a smaller back up. Definitely highlights the girls. Cute skirt.

Couldn't love this dress more!
I should really just buy this dress because I have rented it three times now! The first time was for a wedding in September but there was an issue and RTR couldn't send it to me, so I had to get back up dresses (RTR sent me three back up dresses though). But I was still so disappointed that I didn't get to wear this dress that I then rented it for a wedding in November, and it was perfect – so I rented it again when I had a cocktail attire event come up recently. Both times I wore the 6 (I fluctuate between a 4 and an 8, but the 8 was way too big). I've had a hard time losing and keeping off my baby weight so I didn't want a dress to be tight on my stomach, but this dress has just the right shape to hide my problem areas, and the revealing chest area helps make this classy dress have the right amount of sex appeal. The lace is also very thick and makes the dress feel very expensive - plus it has pockets! The zipper can be a little sticky, but other than that I really can't say enough good things about this dress! PS - the first time I wore it I wore a bra and was able to just pin it at the bottom point of the cleavage area. The second time I did not wear a bra and was still ok - I actually personally liked it better without a bra.

Pretty dress but heavy!
I loved the style and quality of this dress but the lace was so heavy and thick! It made me look bigger than I am. I am a petite body frame so this is probably better on a taller person. I am 5'2" and 130 lbs and the proportions were awful on me.

Loved the idea of it!
Unfortunately I didn't end of wearing this dress which was the first time it happened for me with RTR. Essentially the top was large and my boobs were falling out. Regardless of taping myself in I noticed when I shifted it was risky. Which is surprising because I'm smaller chested. However the rest of the fit was great and the dress was beautiful.

Best dress for the last night of high school...
I performed Joni Mitchell in my senior class talent show while wearing this dress. Fit well, but the zipper was super difficult. A little low cut for a school function; had to temporarily stitch up the neckline.

Gorgeous dress - definite stunner!
I wore this for a black tie optional wedding and it was GORGEOUS - once we got it zipped up! The lace is so thick that it took a solid 20 minutes to zip the dress up - I had plenty of room in the dress, but the zipper is really small and the amount of fabric to contend with made it difficult. While I loved the plunging neckline, I did end up grabbing a black lace bra to wear under it, which showed, but looked like it was part of the dress. I felt the perfect amount of sexy and classy! I loved this dress and wish I didn't have to return it!

Beautiful
Loved this dress. It's simple and dramatic at the same time - if you can imagine that. Loved the pockets and the shape of the bottom. Keep in mind that this dress is VERY low cut. I felt uncomfortable with how deep the v was, so I used fashion tape to make it more conservative. Overall, great rental. I'd recommend renting your true size and also one size down.

Loved it!
Great fit, very comfortable. I wore it to a wedding in early October. You WILL need sticky tap if you are lacking fullness in the top. Underlying dress ends a little above the knee (slightly higher for me because of my height - 5'7"). I received so many compliments, I loved the dress. Wish I owned it.

Beautifully made, but very revealing
This is a beautifully made dress and feels expensive. It is very fitting on top and in the waist with a classic a-line bottom that is gorgeous. I am 5'3 so the overlay was a little long, but because it was lace was nice and a little sexy. As far as the deep v in front...it is way more drastic than I thought and felt a bit inappropriate. I loved the idea of the dress, but would advise people to be prepared to show off a lot of skin on top.

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!

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.

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.
