Loved this dress.. sexy while still being classy.
Fit my body really well, has some give, but not too much. I actually didn't wear a bra, as the dress lining is pretty thick and the dress was tight enough where it wasn't noticeable. Received a lot of compliments, highly recommend.

Great dress! Sexy, on trend, and a great fit
I wore this to a pary at a snazzy downtown hotel. The dress was unique enough that I didn't look like anyone else, but still on trend, stylish, and not outrageous. The fit was perfect, I am a pretty true size 8, and I ordered an 8 and a 10, but the 8 fit perfect! I would totally purchase this if I could afford it.

Sophisticated, sexy, and totally on-trend!
I wore this to a benefit dinner and it was stunning! Although there were a lot of lace dresses there, the back of this one really made it stand out. The lining is soft but heavy enough that I felt comfortable going without a bra and knowing nothing was going to showthrough. Because I wasn't wearing a bra (although a backless bra would have worked), I went for the 4 over the 6 because it was just slighty tighter at the top and if fit better in the arms. Not much difference in length between the 4 & 6 - both hit upper thigh, which I felt was still appropriate becasue of the high neckline. he dress was form fitting, but not skin tight, so I felt sexy but still very comfortable. The dress itself was great quality - the lace was free of any loose threads/tears. My second RTR rental and it was another amazing experience! LOVED IT!

This was a super fun dress - the open back was just enough to spice it up. I got tons of compliments, and no one wore anything just like it!

Beautiful! This dress is a show-stopper.
Fit like a glove, stretchy, perfect amount of skin showing, short and sexy. No bra needed.

Would you say its stretchy enough to fit over a pregnany belly? I'm hoping to use this as my birthday dress but I'm currently 6 months. Thanks!

First time ever!
This was my first time renting from RTR, I got the promotion to try on three dresses for only a penny and I was so happy with the delivery. But on to the dress.. I have smaller boobs (when not wearing a bra) and since you cant wear a bra with this it really flattened me out. So that wasn't great. Length was way too short for me. Beautiful dress but just not right for my body type.

I felt like a hot mama!
This dress is a winner! I had to pick a new dress at the last minute after my original had rips in it...and I'm so glad I did! I felt amazing in this. It fit true to size and garnered sooo many compliments. This was my first time going out since I had my baby four months ago so I wanted to look hot...mission accomplished. Keep in mind it is backless; not a problem for someone with a small chest like myself but fair warning.

Beautiful dress
This dress was beautiful for a fall wedding. I did have to wear a Nu Bra which did work but I was a little self conscious about. The dress would ride up when dancing.

Exceeded all expectations
I had a vision for the dress I wanted to wear to a friend's wedding, and this dress was it! And it certainly didn't disappoint. There were several black lace dresses at the event but this one seemed to stand out. You can't go wrong with this dress!

Sexy and comfortable!
This dress was perfect! I received a lot of compliments. It was comfortable and sexy at the same time! It is extremely low and the Victoria's Secret bra was not good even though it was low it was not enough. You need a backless bra and that's kind of tough for the busty girls like me!

The dress was beautiful, I loved the fit! Unfortunately you can't really lift your arms or the whole dress goes up too, so dancing wasn't an option. My first experience with this service, and I'll def rent again!

Right dress just not for me!
I ordered this for my anniversary & was super excited to wear it, unfortunately this style didn't work. The 6 had too much gap in the back & the 4 was totally unflattering. If you are small on the top & have hips, this might not be your best choice. RTR was great with service & sent me a replacement in time for my anniversary.

Perfect for a wedding
The dress is absolutely gorgeous. My favorite was the back "cleavage". My boyfriend LOVED it and could not keep his hands off of me. The dress does run small and the buttons on the back kept popping open so I had to pin the back to keep it together. The sleeves are also tiny, so since I work out (and have minimal muscles), I had a hard time squeezing my arms in. Other than that, I loved the dress and received many compliments. I would definitely buy it if I could!

Perfect for our Downtown LA engagement photos!
I could not have been happier with this dress for my engagement photos. It fit great and was very flattering. It is very form fitting and it did ride up a little when walking so I had to keep puling it down, but it didn't bother me too much. This dress fit perfectly for the look we were going for.

The dress was amazing !!! I wore it to my husband's Christmas party ...a lot of compliments!
The dress was beautiful ! The fit was great except in the sleeves..... It was tight! I do have an athletic build, so it was understandable. The back is open , so I wore a "stick on bra" , and it worked great ! I ordered both sizes 0 and a 2, the 0 had a better fit for me !

Such a comfy dress, I felt great all day/night and everyone loved it!
The only thing I had to do was safety pin the top there was only clip buttons on the back which kept coming undone, needed to have a hook and eye or something more sturdy.

Just okay...
I rented this as my alternate dress for a wedding - I ended up going with the other dress (my first choice, which I fell in love with immediately!). The open back was my favorite part. I am typically a size 6 - depending on the dress, can be a 4. I rented the 6, and it was a little big...prob could have gone a size smaller. All in all...a pretty cute dress, but wouldn't be my first choice.

Gorgeous dress with keyhole back. I received many many compliments. Wish I could have kept it!!
I couldn't have received more compliments and was so so happy with the dress!! The dress fit very well. i ordered a size 2 and 4; wound up wearing the size 4. The 2 fit except for that the arms/shoulders were rather tight (and i don't have broad shoulders), and with either size, the top snap would not stay closed and i had to pin it. luckily my hair covered it. it was so comfortable, not too short and very pretty. i was able to dance and party the night away at this wedding!

Very pretty dress! Sizing was a bit awkward for me
I got the dress for my boyfriend's Christmas party. I had originally ordered another dress but was unable to get another size. I spent 20 mins on the phone with RTR customer service and they proved to be extremely helpful and patient with helping me pick out another dress. This dress arrived the next day but came in extremely late. I loved the look of the dress but the arms were very tight but not to the point where I was uncomfortable. My main issue with the dress was although the front of the dress fit perfectly the back was not form fitting to my body regardless of the size. So I was cautious about my posture most of the night to be sure that the dress wasn't sticking out on the sides. It was a great dress, just not meant for my body type.

I rented this dress for a rehearsal dinner for an October wedding and it was perfect! Just enough coverage to be good for the weather and the back was just sexy enough to work for the event! Loved the ooos and ahhhs i got from both guys & girls on the open back!!

Great dress, but shorter than I was expecting!
Great dress! Very complimentary - the back makes this dress! I ordered a size 4 and a size 6. The size 4 fit better, but I felt it was too short, so I went with the size 6 instead. I got a lot of compliments. The dress is great - great lace, great fit, just too short on me. I had to tug it down quite a bit.

Beautiful dress, but wasn't appropriate for my event.
The dress was beautiful, it hugged in all the right spots. But because of how tight the dress fits with the open back it became too sexy for my event very quickly. I had to wear something else, but I would definitely recommend it if it's for a date with your man just not a company christmas party... haha

Sexy without being obvious!
This dress was amazing! I wore the 2 but probably could have worn the 0 (I got a 4 as my backup, oops!). The material is thick and stretchy. I didn't get a picture of the back but it was really beautiful and open. The dress was a little shorter than I thought it would be but not scandalously so. My boyfriend said this was his favorite dress so far (this is the third one I've rented). I have nothing but good things to say about this dress and RTR!

The dress was elegant, sexy and comfortable!
I wore this dress to a fancy, southern wedding and I felt sexy, yet elegant. I got so many compliments on the dress. The back and sleeves are gorgeous. It's also a very comfortable dress so it was easy to dance in. If you have long legs, this dress will show them off beautifully!

Loved this dress!
Overall this dress was perfect! Loved all the lace and the open back added a sexy feel. The length was perfect on me but I'm short (5'2''). The only problem with this dress was that the buttons in the back kept unsnapping so I had to safety pin it closed. Great dress! Would definitely rent this one again!

I did not wear this dress.
I was unable to wear this dress as the buttons at the top near the neckline popped anytime a bent my shoulders forward. This was unfortunate as I loved the look and the backless option. Another note is that this dress is very mini, a bit too short for a wedding. If you are over 5'7" plan to purchase panty hose that don't show the black portion near the top.

Elegant dress with a sexy back.
The dress fit really well. I am usually a size 2 but the sleeves were too tight so I went with the size 4. The size 4 did not look that much bigger on me. The dress was comfortable and the perfect length. However, it might feel too short if you have longer legs. I was able to dance away all night :) Overall, a great dress.

Always more than satisfied with a RTR dress!
They aren't lieing when they say the sleeves are a bit snug no matter what size you wear. While it is hard to find a happy medium with both comfortable arms and a nice fit throughout the rest of the dress, it is totally worth the tight feel! I really liked this dress, and especially the open back feature it offered. Add a statement necklace to complete and you're set!

Didn't wear this
Sleeves are very tight. Dress has no give at all and the whole backless thing was a bad idea for me 36D - no bra was not an option. Even if my backless bra worked I wouldn't have worn because I didn't find it flattering. Better on athletic types not of much for curvy girls.

December evening wedding at an old, elegant hotel in Baltimore.
The back latch was a little loose as the thread was pulled and almost detached. I noticed this the night before so I was able to adjust it a bit. The dress itself did not stretch or give any so it was a little tight across my bust but it didn't affect the fit too much and wasn't noticeable. As a short girl, the length was perfect. A couple of inches above my knees.

An amazing night with amazing friends!
This dress was amazing! It fit great and I got a ton of compliments. It fit pretty true to size but was a little short. I am usually a 4 but wore the 6 to give myself the little bit of extra length. Also, one of the neck snaps on the 4 wouldn't stay snapped so the 6 was just the better choice for me.

I am very petite and short but the size 0 fir perfectly. The length was perfect. I didn't have to worry about pulling it down all night. The open back was my favorite part of the dress.

Loved the back to this dress and pattern! Wish I was able to wear it
Never ended up wearing this. Too short for my liking and touched the hips wrong. I only had one size and might have done better with the bigger size for length and a little more give
