Stylist Review!

Overall fit: True to Size

I rented this dress for a night out with friends, and I loved it! It runs pretty true to size, but I would size up in back up! Since the back is open, you definitely need to wear a NuBra with it. This dress hit me right above the knee! It was super flattering on and I got a ton of compliments! I definitely recommend this!

Neat print

I loved the print but be aware that it is full at the back opening so you need to be mindful of the fit as my husband alerted me that you could see down the back of the dress.

Awesome dress; unique print

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Vacation
Well, I LOVED this dress. I really wanted it to work for me! It looked fine, but really, it would just look better on a different body type. I have an hourglass shape (smaller in the middle; larger top and hips). I was able to wear the dress, but it was loose in my waist and a little tight in my hips (the length was good though). I think this dress would work better for someone who has a more narrow/straight frame. The material of this dress is super comfortable, light and great quality. I wore a turquoise statement necklace that I already owned and paired a yellow clutch with the dress. It was a really cute outfit, like I said, just not great for my body type.

I rented this dress for a fundraising party, so I wanted something that was conservative, but still sexy. I absolutely loved this dress - and so did my husband. I am petite so it hit me right above my knee. The sleeves were only slightly too long, but nothing that made me uncomfortable. It is super comfortable to wear since it is not form fitting, and the open back is a nice surprise. I ordered a NuBra to wear with it and it worked great. The pattern is gorgeous!

Open back

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
I wanted to love this dress but both sizes I ordered (2 & 4) had such a big open back that you could look directly down and see my panties. It had no shape to hug into the back whatsoever. Thankfully my backup fit perfectly and I was able to use it :)

dress was a hit!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I loved this dress, the print was beautiful, and i loved the open back. The only issue I had was that it was tight around my butt and thighs because I am thicker there. The dress would probably be best for someone with a straight and narrow shape, with less of a booty. I rented a 4 and a 6 and the 6 did not fit any better around the thighs, just got bigger on top. Everyone at the wedding loved the dress, and I was happy with it overall.

The dress was gorgeous! I loved the material, the print, the length. The only thing was the back was cut a little big so you could see down the dress. I fixed it with doubled sided tape.

Cute design and back

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Date
The dress runs a tad tight actually through the waist/hips. It's roomy up top and in the sleeves but, I wish they had my size up (8)...but the back is HOT! It's open so I would definitely recommend stickies since I had to go braless and if it wasn't just a date night with the hubby I would've been super uncomfortable!

Love this dress! More modest in the front, but shows enough leg and back to be sexy

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Vacation
As everyone has already said, fashion tape fixes the gap in the back. Also order a size up if you're a little bigger in the legs as this dress rides up to risqué heights if its too fitted on the lower part of the body. Other than that such a comfy and effortless dress

This dress was perfect for my beach vacation: it had incredible versatility. The loose fit was forgiving, but still very figure flattering (something I was concerned would be lacking). It was the perfect length and very comfortable. Adhesive bra or other type of no show bra is necessary if you don't want to go braless.

Had to send back...

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small

Sadly, this fit everywhere except the hip area, where it was just too snug for comfort in my usual size (granted, I do have ample hips!) I was sad to send this one back as it was really pretty, light and airy, colors were great and loved the sexy back.

I was scared you'd be able to see down the back since it goes so low, but I didn't have a problem. Wearing the bigger size was great, ran small. Good length since I didn't want it to be too long or too short!

Too tight across the hips

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I'm usually a 0/2, and only had this dress delivered in a 0 because it was the only size available. It was perfect, except for the fact that it was a bit tight across my hips. I ended up wearing my back up for a more comfortable fit, but this was a beautiful dress. Now that I know my size (a 2!) I would rent again-- the open back is gorgeous and would be perfect for a fun summer party.

This dress was perfect for my friend's not-so-formal wedding. Love this backless dress!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The dress fit great and it actually is more form fitting than flowy, which I wanted. The backless part is beautiful but you will want to get one of those bras that only goes over the front (backless bra). I ended up forgetting mine and the wedding was out of town in Texas, so naturally (being in Texas) I went to a Wal-Mart and bought a basic backless bra which worked great. Enjoy this dress!

I ordered this last minute for my sisters bridal shower. I was a little nervous that it wouldn't have any shape on me because I am not very curvy, but I loved it! It fit so well! I wore a sticky bra and had no problems. Lots of compliments throughout the day. Glad I took the risk :)

Unfortunately did not wear this dress

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Vacation
I love the look of this dress and thought it would be perfect for a bachelorette party at the beach. The top half of the dress fit perfectly - the open back showed off my shoulders and back and was loose but not too lose around the midsection. The lower half was extremely tight on my thighs whenever I moved. I have very muscular thighs and when I sat down I was afraid it would rip. When I raised my arms overhead the dress also moved because of it being form fitting on the hips and would have showed off my toosh. So unfortunately I am exhchaning for something different. I think if you are more of a thin and straight build it would fit you perfectly.

Fit well. Only comment is that the darker pattern happens right by your stomach so if you are trying to hide a pooch...just be aware. I ate a huge dinner and still felt great in dress. Open back made for a sexy surprise. Definitely short!

Fun Pick

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
Loved the pattern and the low back; the top was nice and loose but hip area of the dress was much tighter than I had anticipated, sitting around in it for a little while helped, but if you are looking for comfort I would order a size up. The sleeves and the neckline nicely balanced out the back so it didn't feel too risqué.

I wore this to a wedding in Southern California wine country and it was perfect for the event. I didn't have the problem others mentioned with it gapping in the back, and I found it to fit true to size. The dress I received was in great condition, and as always, dealing with RTR couldn't be easier!

I'm 5'5 and it was a perfect length on me, any shorter may have been too short for the Catholic church wedding I went to. Lots of complements especially on the back of the dress. Really comfortable, just get a good sticky bra. Would rent again.

Worth it!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
Like many of the other reviewers, I would say this dress is probably meant for a straight and narrow body type. I have a bigger bottom half, so it was a little tight/snug around the hips, and a little bulgy at the waist. However, I did find a way to jerry rig it. I knotted the string at the top of the back, and then again near the lower back, so that I could then tie it around my waist and cinch it a bit (you can see it in my pictures). Obviously, it took away from the completely open back of this dress, but it worked for me. Would definitely rent this dress again, but would probably try and get the next size up for a little extra room...
