Fun and Flirty Dress!

This dress was really flirty and fun! It is pretty short, so I wouldn't recommend this dress if you are taller than 5'6 or 5"7, because it was a true mini on me! This dress is pretty fitted throughout, and cinches at the waist, so I would size up in backup. You need a NuBra with this dress because the back in completely open!

Don't be fooled by this dress's adorable facade, it is so sexy with an open back and fitted skirt. I got so many compliments (and looks) in this dress, perfect for a party or bachelorette with friends! Also great to wear on a date... Overall, the zero fit but it was definitely tight in the hips - size up if you're curvier or just like a looser fit. I am an A but there was def room for a larger cup, just be sure to wear a NuBra!!!! (small cups can wear petal concealers)

I loved this dress, but it should be known that it has a pretty deep open back and if you have a descent size chest be aware of any side boob. Also, the dress is more of a cream color.

All the girl's at the party couldn't get over how great the dress looked!

Wore this for my bachelorette party for the sexy look. Dress ran a little smaller than what I am comfortable with wearing. I thighs are a little bigger than most people's so the dress was tight on the bottom but larger in the top area. I had to wear spandex underneath. Still a super cute dress. Just made for smaller girls than me.

It was a perfect dress to celebrate a friend's birthday! Everyone asked where I got my dress.

This dress is stunning and perfect for a summer event. It's lightweight and extremely comfortable. The open back adds a sense of sexy while the front keeps the dress modest and classy. If you are curvy, I did find that the dress can be a tad snug on your hips, but overall the dress runs true to size.

I wish I could say that the dress fit me correctly, but it just didn't. It was pretty disappointing that this didn't work out b/c I had high hopes for it. I normally wear a 6, but that was just too tight across the thigh/butt area. The 8 fit better in the bottom half, however, the top was just a little too big on the sides (gap revealed some serious side boob) which was surprising b/c I'm a D cup. I think this is one of those outfits that works better on an athletic, petite or straight build.

this is a very nice dress but runs slightly small, and is too short for taller women unless you are in Vegas.

All of my wedding weekend attire was late for arrival and I called RTR at 7:30PM ET... crying. They shipped me everything overnight early morning delivery and I had it all the next day by 7:00 AM PT. Amazing, they completely understood how important it was for me to have my dresses!

Brides... this is the perfect Bach party dress! The material is surprisingly stretchy on the bottom, so it hugs all of your curves. Also the back is low so there is a lot of side boob. I am a pear shape so it was super lose on the top but incredibly tight on the bottom, probably better for different body types.

Yeah I got this as a dress to go out in Vegas-thought the backless aspect would be cute. The dress has a really odd fit,like showed way to much "side-boob" and the straps are an odd material-doesn't really go with the dress material. I would not rent this again.

The waist band has an ugly exposed white elastic band in the back. I thought that they actually left a piece of the dress off. Cute in the front but overall, not a good cut for my body type!

This dress is very flattering - the low back and cinched waist were fantastic. I wore this in the summer when I was fairly tan - if I had worn this in the dead of winter though (now) it probably would have washed me out.

My boyfriend loved this dress on Valentine's Day!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Date
This dress photographs really well, but I felt a little uncomfortable in it because the bottom is extremely tight, while the top doesn't leave much to the imagination. There is definitely a potential for side boob if you aren't careful, and the back is completely open. I used fashion tape and still got nervous that there was going to be a mishap. All in all it's a very pretty, sexy dress that will definitely get you attention, but I probably wouldn't wear it again for a nice dinner (especially if you plan on eating a lot since it is so tight). As far as fit, I am 5'0" so I am always worried about length but with a size 4 it was perfect. It rode up a little because it was tight so it was almost too short at points in the night. I usually wear a 4 and I could've worn a 6.

This was great for prom. It was a little shorter than I expected. The fit was tight in the bottom and a bigger chest would have helped to fill out the top better. I had lots of compliments

Feminine, pretty and great for summer. It fit good, but was a little short and the slip seemed to be longer than the dress b/c it hung out of the bottom throughout the night. I would recommend the dress for a petite build, top was a bit small for me. You need to wear a backless bra b/c the back is completely open-which was my favorite part!

Not flattering

I rented this dress for my bacheloretty party and it did not work out. The sizing is very off - the top is large and the bottom is very tight. The material is slinky and shows every little crevice of your body. You cannot wear undergarments with this dress. Cute but did not work.

It ran super small. I'm a petite person and after struggling to figure out how to get it on, it didn't fit over my hips. It was poorly constructed and looked cheap. I wouldn't have worn it if it fit anyway.y only RTR bust!

I purchased this dress from RTR. I haven't been able to wear it yet, but I tried it on and it's so cute! The neckline and low back cut out make the dress super sexy and fun. It does run a little small. I got a 4 which is what I normally wear and it's tight but still fits and I can't wait to wear it!

A little strange...

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Date
I bought this dress on sale. While I love the dress itself - the style is super cute and unique - the neck/clasp and fasten at the waist is very strange and worn out. It looks kind of like an ace bandage which doesn't really go at all. The fabric is very unforgiving - no stretch whatsoever. Usually a size 4 is too big on me but this dress hardly goes over my hips. I'll definitely have to lose some weight before I can wear this dress.. But I love it regardless of all that. Super stylish and a good combination of flirty and sexy without being over the top.
