Very different, was perfect for a swanky NYE party in Chicago!

Very cute, this dress definitely hugs your curves, but is too short to wear spanx. I wore tights that were pulled up to my belly button, and it worked well (just annoying to have to keep pulling them up all night!). The dress is definitely short, but with tights it's not a big deal. I had a few people try to fix the back thinking it was my bra strap showing, and I contemplated using the fashion tape to hold the dress up without the strap, but I decided not to and liked that it was something different. Be aware that you have to wear some sort of sticky bra since there is no room for straps. I got one at Nordstrom that worked really well. All-in-all, I liked the rental and would consider renting again!

I wasn't a fan of this dress. It was super big on me but it also seemed to make me look fat. I sent it back, but RTR was super understanding and accommodating.

As other reviewers noted, the dress is SHORT. I wore it with tights and was fine, but it would be very risque without tights. I had to wear a strapless bra to hold up my chest and pinned the bra to the strap in the back of the dress, which seemed to work; I contemplated using double-sided tape but it would have shown through the dress. I got a lot of compliments when I wore it, but if you are self-conscious about your figure I would recommend a different dress. This one shows off all of your curves!

Loved this dress, but I did have people asking me why my bra was showing in the back throughout most of the night, just because that black piece sort of resembles a bra due to the clasps. The cutout in the back is very low, too - so I wore tights to show a bit less skin. All in all it was a great dress for NYE.
