Very cute with boots
True to size, this dress looks beautiful on and fits perfectly. However, it's not that comfortable to wear. The sleeves were a bit tight and left a mark on both my arms.

A major hit!
Loved everything about this dress. The fabric, the cut. So comfortable. So flattering. Could pair with boots or flats or sandals to dress up or down. I wore several times before I sent it back. I wore to a casual day at the office, to a dinner date with my boyfriend and to casual girls brunch. Perfect for all occasions.

IN LOVE!!!!
I've rented this so many times! I absolutely adore this dress! It runs very short, so size up for backup. It is flirty and cute, I've worn it on a date with tall black boots, to work with black booties, and to a Christening with some bright pumps. Seriously-can I keep this forever?!

Beautiful dress but smelled awful of body odor. Could not wear
Very loose on and forgiving.

Lovely Lace
The lace detail on this dress is absolutely beautiful. Note that the black slip under the lace is quite short, so this dress is bet suited for petites. It is also a little low cut. The dress runs a little small overall, so if you are between sizes, size up. I wore it twice -- once for a Father's Day dinner and another time to a wedding rehearsal dinner. Feels very stylish and not boring at all.

Gorgeous dress with amazing detail.
The dress fits perfectly and I received SO many compliments. The only issue is that I am smaller in the chest area and the black slip underneath kept falling down below my bra. This was slightly annoying, but could easily be fixed with some double sided tape to keep it up. Other than that, it was a great dress!

Beautiful Dress
I really liked wearing it - it is a little short so you have to pay attention when sitting down though ;)

Adorable!
Hides baby bump! Super fun and flirty! Heavy lace material makes it classy. Black little slip makes it saucy! Black slip a little short. Definitely had to be careful when bending over or sitting. But I liked that it wasn't the full length of the dress, made it stand out more. Lace a little itchy on the arms so not anything I would want to wear longer then a brunch.

Unique, beautiful dress!
As with any 2 layered dress the slip underneath needs adjustment- lots of Hollywood tape etc. however it's a head turner!! Very different and stands out. Worn to a daytime wedding :)

Crazy short but pretty!
The black liner under this dress is crazy short and barely stretchy, so sitting down is very difficult! However, it's a lovely dress. The lace layer definitely fits on the larger side and was initially stiff/scratchy feeling but I got used to it. You need a very low cut bra due to the low, square neckline of the black layer. This dress was pretty but I didn't feel like it was as unique or awesome as some of the others I've rented. May or may not rent again. I wore the 42 and typically wear a 4. It was very much the right size!

Most compliments of my life!
This dress is true to size and nothing short of amazing. The picture does it no justice at all. It was perfect in every way. I am a 34ff bra and it was perfect and roomy and flirty and very different. Felt like wearing nothing at all!

Stand out dress!
The lace on this dress is stunning as is the overall construct of the dress. Tons of people complimented me on the dress on the two occasions i wore it (an afternoon communion and an evening graduation party). The slip below is shorter than the lace which adds a sexy factor. I absolutely loved it!

Amazing, versatile dress
I LOVE this dress. I would buy it if the retail price weren't so crazy. It fits great and is super flattering. It looks good with both flats and heels, and it looks particularly good over black tights. I've worn it to work, to the theater, to a party, and to dinner, and I've gotten tons of compliments every time. It even travels well. Rent it. The only potential negative is that I will mention is that, while it's not mini, it is on the shorter side (I'm 5'3"). The lace overlay is longer than the black slip, but the black slip rides up a bit when you sit, so if you're taller and wearing it without tights, it may be too short at that point.

Beautiful dress and lots of compliments!
The black slip underneath is short (doesn't bother me but if you have a big booty beware), the slip strips didn't stay on my shoulders either, wish they could be looked into the dress. Not the most comfortable but loved it! I wore the 2 (40) and for just right. Gorgeous lace and high quality

Love!!
I wore this to work and two concerts. My daughter (who is 2) is obsessed with it. It goes from day to night really well. When you spin around the dress flies up and looks beautiful. Great dancing dress. My daughter made me spin around several times as she looked at me like I was a princess. The detail is exquisite.

Very beautiful lace for the ballet!
Beautifully made fabric, but sheer in the skirt. I didn't realize until my boyfriend came to pick me Up that you could see the outlines of my legs through the material. Not a very flattering fit through the waist for me. The back is flattering (cut out nicely to highlight booty), but from the side and front I wasn't thrilled. Probably best fit for a smaller and more petite frame!

Beautifully made and transitional
This dress was one of my favorites that I've rented from RTR. I loved the lace overlay and it was easily transitional from day time work place to night time happy hour and dinner. I got so many compliments all day and night. The dress is flowy and the lace part is not fitted, and the black under slip is fitted. Loved this dress and will rent again.

The details are so beautiful and the dress fit nice even though I have a short torso
Better on a taller body but what off the rack isn't

Adorable
Fit was relaxed and spot on. I'm normally a 0/2, and wore the 38. It had lots of room (not baggy, but relaxed). Very short. Wore it to two parties with cowboy boots and it got compliments galore.

Amazingly elegant without being too overly dressy
I rented this via my unlimited shipment for a date night with my husband. We had to reschedule date night but we had a golf tournament we were invited to over the weekend and I wanted to wear it. The dress was so beautiful. The fine details are what make this dress a knockout, yet it has a simple girly feel that worked perfectly for a beautiful sunny Sunday event. You could almost wear this dress on a more regular occasion if it weren't just so beautifully crafted (I'd be afraid of over wearing something this elegant). I saw another reviewer mention the dress was too short to wear. I did have to be careful when sitting down and standing up and certainly bending over, but otherwise when standing and sitting properly I didn't find the dress to be uncomfortably short and I can be a little sensitive. I am 5'9" but I am also slight of frame, so not sure if you had a large frame if it might sort of "pull up" so perhaps if you're worried about it, it's possible it would be too short on someone taller. I found it also ran true to size otherwise as well. It's not meant to be a fully fitted dress. It has a slightly bohemian feel with the lace. I found it to be comfortable. I felt like one of the wealthy ladies at the golf tournament! I'd love to wear this dress again.

It was too short for work without tights but it looked perfect with them! The dress was a perfect fit for me. The straps for the slip are really close to the shoulders though so that took a bit of getting used to.

Stylist Review
The perfect delicate lace dress to wear to a day time event! There is a light-weight slip underneath this detailed lace dress, so wearing a nu bra or standard bra is necessary. The slip is a little fitted at the natural waist but flares out at the hips. At 5'4 the dress hit me just above the knee, which I prefer for shorter dresses. I would wear this dress with pair of black heels and simple earring!

Love this dress! I paired it with thigh high socks and booties.
Fit true to size. I normally wear a size 0 or 2 but for this dress I would size down since it is a bit big in the waist. However, if you have bigger arms the lace sleeves are not very forgiving and have a limited range of motion. I'm very tall at 5'10 and I felt very comfortable with the length. I received many compliments on this dress.

Beautiful spring/summer style... as long as you're under 5'5"!
This dress is perfect for a springtime barbecue or a summer music festival, but it's definitely made for shorter girls only! I'm really tall (6'0 / 183cm), but I love looks that show a lot of leg. Sadly, this dress went a bit too far... if I so much as took a step, my tush would be hanging out! The lacy top layer covers up the "indecent exposure" somewhat, but not enough for me to feel comfortable wearing it. If you are shorter, this will be a hit! It is so comfortable (it actually runs large around the waist and hips IMO; back-up a size down) yet flattering. The material is thin enough that it doesn't add any extra bulk and the lace details are lovely. Four stars because I loved the look even though I couldn't wear it myself.
