Very flattering! A regular bra can be worn but there is a small slit in the back. Mini length for me! Not great for broad shoulders

The dress I ordered was not available so RTR offered me any dress on their website at any price (for my original rental...which was $50.00) to replace it. I normally would not spend $350.00 on a rental so when they offered I remembered drooling over this dress and hoped it was available. It was and it delivered. The dress fit me like it was made for me and I now know what a $4,000.00 dress feels like. The detail on this dress is AMAZING....the pic really does not do it justice. I would definitely recommend this dress and knowing what I know now, I would def pay $350.00 to rent it again. Thanks RTR for taking care of your customers!!!

GORGEOUS DRESS

Size worn: 38
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
I received this dress for a date night and it was amazing. I received so many compliments. The dress is VERY slimming, comfortable, sweet but sexy. I normally wear a 4-6, I got the dress in a 6 and the 8 as a backup because I was worried it would run small. It doesnt run small at all, in fact I should have gotten the 4 and 6 instead to compare them. I highly recommend this dress, I am sad to have to send it back!

-Fit is great. This dress is very flattering. -I would recommend it for semi-formal occassions but not for anything formal. You may falll a bit flat at a black tie or dressier occassion.

i'm 5'10'' and ended up not being able to wear this dress because it would have been indecently short. perhaps on someone normal height or petite this dress will work, but beware if you're 5'8'' or up - it definitely will be super super super short.

The lace on this dress is just stunning and not only is it comfortable, its gorgeous in person!

Size worn: 34
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress fits true to size. I'm 5'4, 115 pounds, and about an A-cup and the dress fit wonderfully. Since my chest is small it was great because it didn't make it seem like I was too flat, and was quite comfortable. The dress did fit me a little bit longer than shown in the picture but that's probably because of my height yet it wasn't too long so I was happy. I paired it with Brian Atwood heels

I LOVE this dress. I received compliments all night. It did run a little bit small, in my opinion. I'm pear shapped, and this dress was SUPER flattering! I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

It was fun to wear a dress I could never afford and feel classy AND sexy.

Size worn: 36
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I generally am a size 2 (34) but sometimes a 4 depending on the dress. I have a larger rib cage so the size 4 equivalent (36) in this dress was more comfortable. The bad part about my particular size 36 was the lining at the hem hung down on the left side in the front and back. I inspected the seam and it looks like it was made this way, no tearing. But definitely not part of the dress. There were also a couple small tears in the lace at the shoulders. The 34 was in great condition, I thought about squeezing into it but comfort won out. RTR send enough double-sided tape that I could tack up the hem in the front but not the back. Hopefully no one noticed! I wore a black bra with the dress and it blended in well. If you wear your hair up you may not be able to do that because of the opening in the back, but with my hair down it was covered. If you get an intact version of this dress, it's very cute (hard to take a picture of all the detail). It is short, perfect if you are petite like me. The dress did not arrive until close to 9pm the day I ordered it, so definitely get it the day before you want to wear it! Returning was super easy as always.

Extremely short!

I returned because it barely covered my behind. Good only for petite/short women. I'm 5'6" so this would never work. Other than the shortness, it's a beautiful dress and super flattering on the waist creating a very nice curvy look.

Was a beautiful dress but too big so I'm glad I ordered a different one :-(

Material/lace was stunning but it was too big in the chest and waist even though I ordered the smallest size. Was a major bummer

This dress fit and felt amazing. I am usually a size 2 and the size 2 fit perfectly. I wore this for my friends bridal shower and I received compliments not only on the front but the back since it had a fun satin ribbon detail. It was also fun to see a celebrity in the same dress. I wish I didnt have to return it!

Was only able to try on...and barely that

Size worn: 38
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
Despite ordering what should have been equivalent to my American size 6-8, I could barely get the dress over my head and due to my larger bust the length was a smidge indecent. This dress appears to be a true designer cut, running very small made for small model esque figures. It is a beautiful dress stylistically with lovely craftmanship, however. Just not for girls with curves. :-)

I ordered this as an option for my 30th Birthday Party, but did not wear it.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I selected this dress because I love both Jennifer Aniston and LBD's, but this dress sadly didn't live up to expectations. The fabric was heavier than I was expecting (with no stretch) and is REALLY short. I have wider hips, so I found that the lining (which does not attach to the bottom of the skirt) was moving and riding up, even as I was just turning to see it in the mirror. If you don't have wide hips or are petite, I think this would be a good fit for you. Overall, I like the dress, just wasn't right for me.

Fit well in hip area and a tad big in bust. This dress is somewhat short, but it worked for me because I am short.

Lots of compliments!!

Size worn: 34
Rented for: Party
I wore this to my sisters bridal shower. It was freezing outside so I chose to pair it with tan boots. The lace was perfect for the day time shower. I loved the way it fit... The only issue I had was that the slip underneath was VERY short and would ride up when I was sitting. It wasn't noticeable but I was conscious of it the whole time. Overall I enjoyed wearing this dress!! Lots of compliments and others wanting to know where i got it!!

But bottom half rides up a lot even though it is form fitting. I think next size up would have been too much on top.

I LOVED this dress!!! Looked exactly like the picture on, fit perfect. I'm 5' 1" 103 lbs, 32 DD

Overall fit: True to Size

Fit perfect, I am very petite with a bigger chest, curvy. Cons were that it's hard to tie the bow at the back of the neck alone, get help or tie it before putting it on. Im sad to have to give it back and would definitely rent again! Very cute! Got tons of compliments!!
