Beautiful dress, runs small, not much top support.
This was a really gorgeous dress! I got the zero and it fit me like a glove. I'm only 5-1", but at the time, I weighed maybe 95 lbs. The top was super annoying and I had to use tape to keep it in place...just didn't have enough support. Although it was a beautiful dress, dancing in it proved challenging.

I wore this for my sister's wedding.
The dress was tight. The top needed fashion tape. Since I have a small bust, it worked, but could be difficult to wear for a person with a larger bust. I danced, partied, and received many compliments. I would rent again in a heartbeat.

Runs small... especially the bodice.
I ended up wearing the 2 because I couldn't get my breasts into the size 0 without them falling out. With the size 2 I still needed to tape my breasts into the dress to ensure they wouldn't pop out because the bodice is very flimsy. (If you are very top heavy this dress will likely not work.) Other than that, I was very pleased. It was perfect for a Hollywood party.

Beautiful dress , difficult fit
While the dress has a 5 star look, it scores low on function and structure . It lacks boning in the bodice or cups for the breasts , making it difficult to wear even for an easy -to-fit, proportional body . It looked great on at first, but as soon as I began to move , I was constantly worrying about wardrobe malfunction . (Fashion tape offered no solution. ) The dress also runs small , and unfortunately, shows some visible signs of wear . The size 4 was missing the hook above the zipper , the lace and lining were frayed in a few areas .

Cute but difficult
I read reviews to size up and that there was not much structure in the bust, so I went with larger and sticky tape. The tape did help, but still seemed a little off throughout the night. I got lots of compliments and was in love with the color and lace on the bottom.

Everyone loved the dress, my 2nd rental from RTR and it was great!
The dress does not show well in the picture given on RTR. It's actually a greenish and creme/tan color. Wears very well though but is a bit flimsy in the top. Definitely wear fashion tape or something to keep it from slipping. Also, not made for larger chested women.

This dress was Stunning, but fit small on top and difficult to walk in.
This dress was stunning! I ordered it for a wedding. I wanted a size 4 but they only had it available in a size 2. Usually I am in-between so I was nervous about risking it with only the size 2. I wish I would have waited and worn this for a different event when I could get the 4. The 2 fit but the cups were very very small (I do not have a big chest at all!). I knew I would be dancing and any lifting of my arms threw off the entire fit of the top of the dress. Maybe a 4 would have been better? Also there is NO SLIT! We walked 3 blocks to the wedding and I could barely take a full step. It was even difficult to climb stairs because I really couldn’t lift my legs. My husband joked about me only being able to stand still and look pretty all night. Overall I felt amazing in the dress but on a scale of 1-5 this dress gets a 1 for functionality. Also I had to wear stick on bra and also garment tape to hold all the goods on place. At the reception I ended up changing into my back up dress so I could really dance and enjoy myself without being worried about giving a peep show.

Didn't wear.
Sadly, I couldn't wear this dress. I sized up, 6 and 8. Sadly, that made the bust way way way to big, but since I have the butt of a kardashian, I doubt I could've worn a four. Both fit about the same as well.... which is to say, I looked horrid in it. I felt so bad about myself in this dress that I had a mini-meltdown trying to get ready. Maybe I should've gotten two styles of dresses as I usually do but I decided to order last minute and was paying 30 bucks for overnight shipping already. I've come to learn my size and body shape pretty well, so I've always had good luck renting from here and getting a good dress. Despite reading the reviews and looking at girls with my same shape, I ended up with something I couldn't wear in public, lest I wanted to end up flashing the crowd my boobs or look like 10 lbs of sausage stuffed in a five pound casing. Sigh. Guess my new years resolution is to lose weight this year.

Stunning dress but don't forget the Hollywood tape!!!
The size 0 was a perfect fit...... Except for the all important boobies! I went with the size 2 in order to feel confident the girls wouldn't bust out -- even with double sided tape. The dress definitely shows it's wear but I used the tape to "fix" some spots. The boning disn't sit as well as I would've liked -- but may be because the 2 was a bit big. I would recommend this dress as long as you have a small chest.

Special and unique. Compliments all night long!
I read the other reviews about the top and it's true, there is no boning in the top of the dress so there isn't any structure. Trust me the dress is worth the effort of getting that top to work. Double Sided fashion tape will be your best friend. Definitely wouldn't recommend for bigger busted women. I seriously loved how I felt in the dress and it was worth the effort of getting the top to lay right.

Didn't get a chance to wear it because it ran EXTREMELY SMALL.
Pretty dress. I normally wear a 4. I read the reviews that said to order up so I ordered the 6 and the 8 and neither fit (I couldn't even zip it up). The top is more of a mesh pattern (see closeup pic). Bummed it didn't work out this time!

Beautiful dress! Listen to warnings, only rent if have small bust!
This was my first RTR experience and the service was spectacular. I love the ease of the service and will definitely be a returning customer. So, I rented this dress despite some of the warnings just because it looked so pretty and I decided I would make it work! It really was beautiful and definitely unique, however, I wish I would've listened to other reviews and selected another. It is true that it really is ONLY meant for small busted women. A cup or smaller. B maybe..... I felt uncomfortable all night because my boobs were so smashed in, I taped the dress all around to keep it up, but after a 60 minute Catholic ceremony of sitting, standing and kneeling, it kept pulling it off of me and I'd have to keep pulling it up and re-adjusting anyways, which is never attractive. It stinks to be uncomfortable throughout an entire evening worrying about popping out, so don't put yourself through it. I wore the 4, but could' have fit into the 2 body wise, but the 4 fit my boobs better, so it was a bit baggy in the middle when I would sit down. Listen to the reviews and pass this one up if you are bigger than an A cup.

Dress is amazing- runs a bit small and flimsy up top but great for small chested girls. I would suggest fashion tape and spanx but it was very hard to part with!

I normally wear a size 4 and ordered the 6 as back up, the 6 was too small to zip up. However, the dress is really beautiful. It was a shame I could not wear it.

Ugh. Too bad for this one.....wanted to love it!!
This dress is well made, but for who?? Definitely someone built straight and narrow, no curves at all. It didn't accommodate my chest or hips. With that in mind, definitely order if your body type would allow. I would say it runs a size and a half smaller that my normal 4-6. The 6 was very small. Good luck!

Beautiful dress, but tricky to wear
This was my first RTR experience, and it definitely won't be my last. The dress was beautiful and I got so many compliments from friends and strangers at the wedding! I felt like a walking advertisement for RTR and couldn't quit gushing about it. The process of ordering, receiving and returning the dress was super easy. I knew from other reviews the dress ran small and ordered my usual size, but the backup was sold out. Luckily I was able to make it work, but I was all kinds of taped up inside the dress. The bodice has no support and would not work on larger chests. A strapless/backless/self-adhesive bra and lots of Hollywood tape did the trick. It stayed put, looked great and was worth the trouble. I would recommend it, but would definitely take those things into consideration!

Beautiful lace dress
Normally I wear in between a 4 and 6 size dress, however after carefully reading the reviews from other renters I decided to order this dress in an 8 and 10. I ended up wearing the 10 and even that was VERY fitted. This dress is not for anyone who has a bust bigger than a c-cup. I received SO many compliments at the wedding I attended and I really loved it. It wasn't exactly the most comfortable dress, but I would highly recommend it based on how great it looked on.

Cute, unique dress - size just didn't work
I loved the details on this, but it just did not fit in the bust. I ordered a 0 and 2 and the 0 mostly fit. But, the bust did not have enough structure, and kept slipping down. Even with fashion tape, I wasn't comfortable wearing it and would've been tugging at it all night.

Received tons of compliments. Size up
Love this dress!! The details definitely set it apart. Runs small so size up thankfully the backup size fit great. Only Downfall is the bust, it's not structured so it doesn't offer support for a larger chest. However, I used some Hollywood tape and the top stay put all night!

Looks great, but doesn't stay up.
The dress is gorgeous and I received multiple compliments on it but I was also pulling it up all night long. It wasn't a matter of being to big, It was very tight, to the point that I was barely able to zip it up but there is no structure in the bust and the fabric falls down.

RTR always comes to the rescue
Stunning dress !! Looks much better on then it does online. The dress runs a bit small. I usually wear a size 2 but ended up needing the 4 in this dress. The corset top is deceiving and has no actual support so double sided tape is a must !!!

Beautiful dress! Runs small.
I LOVED this dress, I thought the detailing was beautiful and it's very well made, but the 6 was very, very small in the bust and there is virtually no built-in support, so it wasn't happening — and my backup size was unavailable. Size up, and make sure you have a no-show bra on hand.

Runs Small
Beautiful dress - actually looks much darker in person. It runs small - both of the sizes I ordered didn't fit (Size 0 and 2). However, RTR sent me another dress in time for my event. Maybe I'll rent it again, this time one size up.

Classy
I read the reviews prior to renting so I knew it would probably run small on my 34D chest and it did- the cups not having any structure to them actually worked to my advantage in this dress because I just used adhesive tape and never once had to re-adjust throughout the day. I wore a ribbon belt around the waist and it looked great with the dress. Received lots of compliments:)

Love the look
Ended up wearing another RTR dress because the dress did not come with double sided tape (as others had received) and the top of the dress wouldn't stay in place otherwise. Definitely runs a little small as others have shared, particularly in the bottom (cups in top were actually big on me). Bottom has no give or stretch whatsoever. But I can definitely see how this dress would photograph very well!

Good for the price ..but showing it's threads
Overall this was a fantastic dress for a June wedding in StL. All the previous reviewers were correct in that the top of the dress has little structure (a basic corset/bustier worked like a charm without needing fashion tape). It must be popular because the finishes on the size 2 and 4 were not in as pristine condition as I would've liked. The dress coloring in person is a little deceptive from the RTW photo. The blue floral is much more of a dusty blue with almost lime green threading detail.

The dress fits really poorly for petite girls.
The length was far too long and the top did not do any justice. It was far too tight to wear with a bra, and gave NO support or charm to smaller breasts without a bra. It also is a different color than shown in the photos.

I wore this to a senior banquet for my organization -- this dress was the highlight!!
Note that this dress is VERY small-- I have worn another Proenza (bustier silk forest green) from RTR about 4 years ago and fit easily into a 0. This size 2 barely fit! I have a slightly athletic/straight build (5'4"-5'5", 115 lb) with a small bust (32B-- this is my friend's acct) and the rib cage barely zipped up. The bust of the 2 could probably fit no bigger than a 34B. The material doesn't stretch at all, and the cups aren't padded. Now to the merits-- I am so glad I wore this dress!! It photographed beautifully and I loved every moment I was in it. The color and cut is so flattering and perfectly sophisticated while still being interesting and young. I wish I had another event and I wish I could wear it again!!! TL;DR: this dress is GOLD. Be careful for the sizing though!

Pretty dress... unfortunately it did not fit.
I rented this dress for a wedding. After reading the reviews, I ordered a size up and went with the 2 and the 4 as a back up size. The size 2 would not event zip up and the size 4 zipped up with some effort but was very tight in the chest area and probably would have burst open in the back had I worn the dress to the wedding. I opted not to wear the dress because it would not have been comfortable. I would definitely suggest going 2 or 3 sizes up. My chest is normal size and was still popping out of the dress.

Beautiful but impossible!
I'm so torn here. Like others, I was dying (dying!) to fall in love with this dress. It is truly spectacular on and in pictures. Like others, I sized up from a 2 to a 4 (which was just fine). And of course, like others, I found it nearly impossible to keep the damn thing on! The top is flimsy, made for smaller chests, and just does NOT stay up. I used fashion tape and safety pins, to no avail. My bra showed nearly the entire night.. but oh, how my pictures came out so lovely. I felt really beautiful despite the problems, so four stars it is.

Was sexy but cute! Perfect for my bachelorette party.
My original rental was way too large and the stylist recommended this to me. She was so amazing... I confirmed this dress replacement the Friday afternoon and received it sat morning at my hotel. It was very comfy - the only thing I would say is that there is not much bust support. I am very small chested so it was fine but I could see it being an issue for anyone larger...

Great dress
Loved the dress- The top bustier part was good with the wire to keep it up, but it was a little snug for my chest size. The dress fit a little snug to size. But overall great dress!
