Amazing dress!!!
This dress is so beautiful and I loved it! Super sexy and got so many compliments. Not too revealing and can wear it even though you don't have a perfect stomach. It runs small so I ordered a size up. I didn't have to wear spanX and it looked perfect and I was comfortable. Beautiful color and all around show stopper!

Great dress for NYE!
I loved this dress! I was really unsure of how it would fit me, but it was fantastic. I felt amazing and got lots of compliments. The plunging neckline was daring for me, but having the mesh overlay made it feel very held together. I am pear shaped and small chested (34B) but the dress worked well. The top has bra pad inserts that are removable if needed. For me the 6 was slightly loose in the top and probably would have fit better if I was a little larger in the chest, but it definitely still worked. Very pleased with my rental! the dress sent to me was brand new with tags still on.

Great Dress!
Used the 8 instead of the 6 for comfort but could have worn either. Cannot wear any type of bra but there are pockets to add padding inside like in a bathing suit if needed. Felt sexy without revealing too much!

Beautiful Blue Color
Love, Love, Love this dress. The blue is very vibrant. Wore it to a New Year Eve Party and it was a hit. The dress hit me right in the middle of my thigh. The sheer deep v was sexy but yet sophisticated. Everyone kept asking where I got the dress. Would definitely rent again.

It was an amazing night with friends and starting a new year. New friends, new beginnings :)
The dress fit great. Had some issues zipping it up myself but otherwise it made me feel beautiful.

Sexy, yet comfy!
I rented this dress for a NYE party and loved how it made me feel. I didn't have to wear a bar (I don't think one would work anyway), as there is some padding on each breast side. The color is stunning and photographs well. It was so easy to wear and comfortable standing, sitting or dancing. This is a perfect party dress and will make you feel sexy and feminine.

Sexy and extremely comfortable -- perfect for NYE!
I was a little skeptical when I pulled this dress out of the hanging bag, but it ended up being a dream! The material fit snugly enough to provide necessary coverage, but not so snugly that I was uncomfortable after a multi-course meal. And it was comfortable enough to dance in for hours! As with many RTR dresses, the material was even lovelier in person than it appears in the photos. It was definitely brighter than it appears in my photo: a pure royal blue. As for the fit, I didn't even attempt a sticky bra, but I don't think it would have worked. The tiered skirt hit me a little above the knee, so the 4 was longer on me than in the model photos (although note that I have shorter legs in proportion to my torso). I thought the relatively modest hemline balanced out the sexiness of the top. I would rent this dress again in a heartbeat!

Beautiful dress beautiful color
Received dress with the tags still on! Gorgeous royal blue and runs true to size. Dress has removable pads so need for pasties. This was probably my favorite rental yet. Lots of compliments on how I looked as opposed to how the dress looked....that's when you know you picked the right one!

Great color, great fit!
Wore this dress to a black tie optional wedding. Received a ton of compliments. The color is bright and really stands out in a sea of black. Definitely cannot wear a bra with this--tape will be your best friend. Really great cut--it was super flattering

Couldn't have asked for a more perfect dress!
I LOVE this dress! I'm really debating on buying it! I wore it out for NYE and it was a hit! I felt like a million dollars! I was able to dance, sit, move and was even able to eat and not feel like the dress was too tight! Highly recommend this!

Great Alternative to LBD
This dress was stunning! Great color and the mesh provided just the right amount of modesty for a company holiday party. It was very flattering but should note that the skirt doesn't actually puff out like the model makes it look. The dress is pretty straight with the ruffles on the skirt tricking the eye into thinking it's more A line. I received TONS of compliments all night on this dress and it made me feel very stylish and a little sexy without being overly skimpy. Would rent again!

Stylist Review!
Intricate mesh and lace design! This dress is super cute and flirty. We suggest wearing this on a date or out with friends. The skirt has tiered lace that creates a beautiful layered effect. There is some stretch the the skirt and it is extremely lightweight. If you have a larger bust, we recommend sizing up. Pair this with black heels and dangling earrings!

Neckline is beautiful!
The dress was a little short so I went with another one. It is would be better suited for a New Year's Eve party or Birthday than a formal dress wedding. I went with a long dress instead but may rent this another time for a different occasion.

Comfortable, sexy and feminine!
I had a work awards ceremony, the mesh was a little risky but felt good. I got a ton of compliments. The fit was comfy and true to size. It was hard to zip by myself. It was a great length. The blue is beautiful and the ruffles made it feminine and sexy! I will def use RTR again next year for the same event.

Great date night dress- it was a bit short though
I liked the color and the fit. I thought the dress was very comfortable. It was fine standing up, but it was a little short sitting down. There was no way I was bending down with this dress. Overall, j was happy with the rental. I received lots of compliments on the dress.

Show stopper!
Lots of men were hugging me. I can't figure out why. Ha. Not sure my fiancé was as big of a fan of the dress at the end of the night as he was at the beginning. Rent this dress if you want every woman and man stopping dead in their tracks to tell you how amazing you look. (I had to iron the lace a bit up top for it to lay flat). Length is perfect for a night of dancing. Fit is true to size.

My favorite RTR dress ever!
I would buy this dress in every color! No bra needed and I don't know how you would wear one anyhow. I'm a C cup and the lining in the dress was fine for me. I definitely wouldn't have wanted it any looser though. I felt secure all night. Great color, lots of compliments, comfortable and lightweight. Did not disappoint!

Fun, flirty dress
Love this dress!! This dress is flirty, fun and very comfortable! Beautiful blue color and the lace with mesh deep V is gorgeous. I used tape for my breasts...you'd probably be fine wearing nothing if you're small chested.

I wore this dress to meet the Backstreet Boys for their Vegas residency and LOVED it!
The fit was a bit loose for a 6, but I say true to fit because of the lace - there was no stretch at all, just a tad bit of breathing room. The dress was incredibly comfortable and even with the plunging neck line, I never felt like I was going to expose myself or have any wardrobe malfunctions. I got compliments on it all night long and was able to dance the night away!

This dress is so beautiful!
This dress is VERY low cut and VERY beautiful! The color is gorgeous too. You really can't wear a bra with this but there are thin removable pads in it. It is a bit shorter than I expected, but not so short I was worried. I wish I had time to steam it because the lace on the front was a little folded from the trip, but it still looked great!

This dress accented my shape in all the right places. It was also very comfortable. I highly recommend it as the tiered waistline is extremely complimentary to ladies with curves.

Revealing
This is a beautiful dress and it runs true to size. I rented it for my engagement party and it was a bit too revealing. The fit is great (the 2fit just right and the 4 slightly big). It would be a perfect dress for a party or a bachelorette party, but for my own engagement party, I thought it was a bit much.

I wore the 8 because the 6 had three small holes in the mesh on the back. Honestly both fit and the 8 didn't look big on me at all. I loved this dress it was extremely comfortable!

The color is amazing! Very flattering
I was afraid it was going to be too short, now while I don't recommend bending over without caution, it was a great, fun length. The mesh over the chest gave the allusion of modesty which is remarkable for such a plunging neck line. Received compliments all night even though it wasn't the original dress I requested.

This dress was amazing.
This was my first experience with RTR and it was fantastic. I absolutely loved this dress. The fit was true to size. It was super comfortable and even though it was very low cut I felt very secure in it the entire night. The dress was a little short so just make sure you are mindful of the length. I would definitely rent this dress again.

Sexy and Sophisticated
I felt very pretty (and sexy) in this dress! It reveals just the right amount of skin without going overboard. I wore this to a black-tie optional wedding in Georgia in May. Most of the women were wearing short lace dresses so it was totally appropriate. You absolutely cannot wear a bra with this dress so in order the keep the girls in place, I used medical tape (google kim kardashian boob tape trick). The medical tape stayed in place all night even as I danced without any wardrobe malfunctions. Such a cute dress, I wish they had it in other colors so I can rent again!

So comfortable!
So the 8 fit me very well; however, it was a bit short so I ended up wearing the 10 because I felt it's length to be more flattering. I loved this dress and received tons of compliments! Super easy to wear, built in light padding around the bust. The lace around the mesh came a bit turned in, but nothing a quick iron couldn't fix. Would definitely rent this beauty again!

Wore this for a NYC bachelorette party and it was great!
This dress came as a backup for another dress I ordered and I was extremely happy with it! I'm petite with larger hips and this was super slimming. The netting in front showed just enough cleavage without being overbearing. The only thing that was frustrating is the lace gets messed up in the packaging. Just dampen your hand with water and lay the lace like it's supposed to go.

Gorgeous dress and amazing color
First..this dress is much sexier on than it looks in any photos. No way you are wearing a bra and the dress is so pretty..So many compliments..in large part due to the color and amount of your breasts people can see. Had to have a friend zip me up. This was my first rent the runway and was a smashing success.

Was extremely happy with the color, fit, style. and quality of this dress. It was so comfortable!
I was notified the day before that the dress in my alternative size, was not arriving. I was worried but ended up contacting an agent, and they located me one right away. Thought i didn't need my back up size, I still felt the customer service was top notch. I loved this dress and ended up wearing it with nude shoes, not the blue ones. It was perfect for the wedding and I ended up wearing a short jacket over it since it was cold. I didn't want to return it I loved it so much and would rent it again! Even the back was stunning! I got lots of compliments and it was great to be in a nice color for a spring/summer wedding. The color is the perfect shade of cobalt blue
