Everyone loved the back!
I wore this dress for a wedding and everyone loved it. It fit really well and it was also heavy material which I liked. My husband also really liked the dress. I got a lot of compliments and I wore my hair up to show off the back!

Phenomenal dress for girls night out!
I have a small chest and considered wearing without support but opted for the nu-bra which was just enough. This dress fit like a glove but had plenty of stretch for me to be comfortable seated or standing as well as getting in and out of the car. Would love to purchase this one!!

This dress did not work out for me. It has cups for the boobs which do not fit larger chested people
It was also overall just clingy but not with a flattering cling. I returned it.

This dress was perfect for dancing all night plus I got tons of compliments!
The dress size was just slightly large because of the stretch. I am a 6/8 and the medium was perfect. I also ordered the small, which fit but looked more "night out on the town" than "nice wedding". The dress was great for dancing and all of the moving around (sitting, standing, adjusting that goes on at weddings). I wore underarmour shorts underneath because the dress rode up a bit when I was sitting. You can't really wear a regular bra so I used a sticky cup one and it was fine. I got tons of compliments at the wedding and afterwards when we went to the bars. Plus my boyfriend loved it!

A bit risque
Not sure what I was thinking, renting this for a wedding, but it's definitely a little black party dress -- not really suitable for your average wedding. Ran quite small!

Loved this - it was really comfortable to wear, and I used a NuBra with it. It was just sexy enough but not too over the top. I would definitely rent it again.

Great dress for a Bachelorette's final fling!
I rented this dress for my cousin's bachelorette party. I'm her MOH and we decided that I needed a sexy LBD. the material was really stretchy, but it's form fitting. I loved the way it hugged my curves in all the right places. If you're uncomfortable with your curves, I wouldn't recommend this dress. The arm holes were a little tight, but I could only tell when I was putting it on and taking it off. When I reserved it, they only had M's, but that fit me well. The back cut outs were super sexy. The back is made out of a different material - it almost felt like neoprene. The very bottom of the cut out part didn't lay flat on my back and kept flaring out a little. Because of the cut outs, you can't wear a bra. I went bra-less and felt fine. Overall, great dress for a night out with the girls!

COMFY AND FLATTERING
I had rented the S & M, the day before I left for Vegas the Small was fine....after drinking a lot of champagne and eating my weight in food, I opted for the M....very very comfy and flattering. I can't wait to rent it again.

Perfect dress for a Bachelorette weekend in Atlantic City!
Amazing dress!! Definitely glad I got the XS instead of the S... like the other reviews say, the fabric is quite stretchy. The fit was absolutely fantastic, however, and I got tons of compliments. I didn't want to send it back!!

Wore this out dancing for a girlfriend's birthday.
The dress is less edgy/angular than I thought--the front is much more sweetheart and the material isn't super nice, but it was great for going out dancing. I wore this with flat sandals to dress it down a bit and still received tons of compliments and felt like a million bucks even though I'm a bit movement challenged on the floor. The XS was too tight for my taste, the S was perfect. I wore a black pushup bra and just adjusted it so the back strap lined up with one of the dresses back panels--otherwise this would've been very unflattering and maybe even too big for such a flat chest. Overall I was very happy.

Great twist on a LBD
I love the back on this dress. I ordered a large as my back up size because I have larger hips, but the medium fit perfectly. Definitely need a backless bra with this though.

Great LBD with a stunning back!!
This dress was perfect for a wedding. It's a simple LBD that is both classy and sexy. It fits really well and is supportive in the chest area. That's really important to someone who usually needs chest support. It looked great and if let great. I would definitely recommend this dress!

I like being able to get a fabulous dress without spending a lot of money.
This dress was overall really nice. The fit was a little weird though. There is a side zipper and it ends right at where my hip is, so it looked like I had a bump on my hip. I didn't end up needing to wear a bra, as the bodice was pretty tight. I'm a 36DDD in VS bras, but this dress held them in and up with enough support to not need a bra. Can't say that about many dresses! The back criss-cross detail is a different material, kind of like neoprene (wetsuit material). I was worried it would be elastic and get stretched out but that's not the case. The weird part of the fit was that while the bodice was really tight, I felt like the bottom portion (under the bust and down) was really loose. It shifted around and rode up a lot. There is a mesh lining which stays put, but the outer dress part was sliding all over the place. Towards the end of the night it was getting really annoying. I am 5'4" and the hem fell just above my knees, which I think is perfect for the amount of skin showing. It's a pretty dress and I felt good in it (at first).

This was my first RTR experience, but it was exactly what I hoped for.
Great dress for my sorority social. Tight but stretchy and very comfortable material. Loved the back! I could've also worn a size small, but I wanted it even more form fitting.

The small was pretty tight around my rib cage, but thanks to a bit of stretch in the fabric I was able to zip it up and it looked great.

Cute!
So cute, the material is thick so it hides the wrong curves and shows off the right ones :). My first size was out of stock and my backup was too big so i didnt end up wearing it, but would consider renting a M instead of a L for my next event!

new years eve dress- medium wasn't available and it ended up looking frumpy and unwearable
let me start by saying i returned this dress for RTR credit and found my size unwearable/unflattering-- but will try for another similarly dressy occasion with the right size because the dress itself is cute. i got this dress in a large because the medium wasn't available, i had a coupon, and thought it was worth a shot. the back of the dress is really interesting, flattering, and cool. unfortunately the front of the dress and the bust were matronly looking. i have no problem not wearing a bra, but because the dress was loose on top it didn't do me any favors/give any cleavage to compensate for the frumpiness. i have an hourglass figure with a big butt, so the butt fit and the boobs fit (just not very sexy in front the way i'd want for a NYE dress), but the way the stomach was baggy was just really unfortunate. trying to pull the dress down only made it frumpier and less flattering. it's not short enough for a youthful party look, and the material is thicker so it's harder to work with. cute dress in theory and will have to see how i feel with the right size.

Dress runs large and fits best on curvier girls
I have a straight figure and no hips and this dress did not fit, even in the XS (and I normally wear a S). It was loose around my mid/hips section and did not flatter my chest. However the dress looked AWESOME on my roommate, 5'7" with hips and a C/D cup chest. Rent this if you are curvier!

I wanted a dress to wear for Halloweekend and I fell in love with this dress!
Since I wasn't exactly sure on how the dress would fit, I ordered the XS and S. I ended up wearing the XS because it fit better and the back didn't feel as loose. The dress was a little longer than I wanted it to be, so I pinned it instead. I got a lot of compliments on the dress and since I was a murder victim for Halloweekend, the dress fitted the theme. Don't worry, the gash on my neck is a prosthetic!

Were you able to wear a regular bra with this or did you go bra-less? Thanks!
RTR CustomerMay 15, 2013
Hi Jennifer, With this dress most customer will wear a Sticky Bra or a strapless. With the strapless you can sometimes see part of the straps. I receommd looking under our Essentials Page for products by NuBra!

Sexy, chic.
I loved this dress. I wore it to a nice dinner in the city and then out to the bars. The fabric is very stretchy, and although I'm tall, I didn't feel like it was too short to be comfortable in. You can really make this dress fancy or sexy-casual - if I rented it again, I'd wear it with some cute booties and edgy jewelry.

I never ended up wearing it because it was a backup dress, but it was gorgeous!
Ran very large! I'm 5 foot 9 and the medium seemed to be a little too long for the event and also a little too wide/ large around the bodice. The back was beautiful though! Loved it overall.

This dress was pretty tight -- I knew it would be from the picture of the model, but I thought since it was in black it would be a "good" tight. It was just way too tight for me - couldn't wear it!

This dress was great! It's form-fitting, but not so tight that it becomes too revealing. It ran true to size, and was great all around! I highly recommend it!

comfy but not a stunner
the fabric is a stretch cotton, which makes it feel casual, although the cut is more daring/evening. Could easily be styled with booties for a more concerty/Williamsburg feel. For me, it felt a little too blah of a fabric, but it would be good for an outdoor event.

loved it! lots of complements
I rented this for my senior homecoming. I thought that I would wear a small, but I ended up wearing the x-small because hugged my hips better. I have very long legs, and it ended about 5 inches above my knees. Very comfortable to wear, but my back got very warm through the night because the back strap are tight. I would totally recommend this!
