Gorgeous dress, but just too tight for me!

I loved this dress and wish I could have made it work but the 8 was just too tight on the hips and thighs and the 10 was not available. The material is stretchy and comfortable and fit great for my smaller mid section. The open back is sexy but beware almost your whole back will be exposed. I had lingering tan lines from the summer and it didn't look right. Wish I could have worn it thought because it was really nice.

Back was beautiful!

So many compliments! Lovely dress, both the 4 and 6 fit but the scalloped lace on the back laid better with the 6. And you definitely need to safety pin the back snaps!

Gorgeous lace dress!

This dress is beautiful but runs a tad small. The open back makes the dress. It's just sexy enough to be appropriate for most occasions. The top comes together with two snaps which come apart with any movement, so I had to use a safety pin to hold it in place. Overall, I liked the dress and would rent it again.

Loved this dress

I wore this dress for a wedding. I usually wear a 6 or a 4. The 4 was very tight and a little short but I was able to go bra less with some spanx which I never ever do. The 6 was a little more loose. I could have worn either size. I had no trouble with the buttons fastening in the back. I probably should have used the double sided tape for the back but did not want to be constricted while dancing.

Got so many compliments! Felt beautiful!!

I was hosting an engagement party and this dress worked perfectly!! The dress ran true to size. I ended up wearing a nubra although I could of gone without and would of been fine. Like others have stated the snaps at the top would not stay closed but a safety pin took care of that problem! I wore stockings because it was freezing out but the dress was short so the black tights helped with that issue as well! Overall I felt beautiful and got a lot of compliments and everyone was asking where I got the dress! Of course I said RTR!

I'm 5'3" and it was short on me!!

This dress would have worked if I didn't have curves and didn't think that I would have to bend at any point during the night. The dress itself was comfortable but I couldn't handle the thought of how much leg (and rear) I was showing!

Classy & Simple!

This dress was classy and simple, but I wasn't blown away as I have been with other RTR dresses. It fit true to size except the upper arms were very tight because the lace doesn't have much stretch. The buttons in the back were very flimsy as well so I had to safety pin it to keep it closed. For reference, I am 5'3", 130lbs, and 34C.

Perfect bit of sexy

This dress was great, wish I ordered a size 2 because the chest area was a bit larger than I would of liked. The buttons do come undone very easy so if you're a dancer you might need to safety pin it just to be safe. Other wise perfect dress as a wedding date.

Loves this beautiful open back dress!

I absolutely loved this dress. The quality was great and the lace was thick. The open back was perfect and the buttons at the neck didn't pop open at all for me. The dress was very short. Being 5' 7" with long legs I definitely went for the size 6 over the size 4.

Beautiful open back dress!

I did love the overall look of this dress. Like every single review I was prepared with a safety pin for the top buttons that didn't stay clasped. I did go with the larger size, 1 for extra length (yes it's short!) and 2 it was just generally a tighter dress. The back was amazing and open, but I just felt I had to keep pulling it down all night even with tights on.

Didn't end up wearing this one

The sleeves were pretty tight and the back would need to be held together with a safety pin because the back doesn't stay snapped together very well. Was a nice dress but for the function I was going to was a little too much!

The only complaint I have is what everyone else said too. The snaps on the back didn't stay so I had to pin it. Other than that the dress was perfect.

Was a great dress felt beautiful and had lots of compliments. This was my first time renting a dress, I will definitely recommend doing it. Had an awesome experience. Dress runs pretty short would recommend wearing tights if you are tall or have butt ;) lol. All in all I would say id probably order this dress again.

The open back

I rented this dress to celebrate my 30th birthday! Such an amazing dress! I am usually a 4, but I wore the 6 bc it was a tad longer. and I did not wear a bra. The only down side is the buttons that attach at you neck don't stay buttoned if you move so I had to pin them. Other than that great dress and great condition!

Great dress with a great fit! Very comfortable

I wore this dress to a fundraiser gala, and loved it! It fit well and I really could've gotten away with the 8 or the 10. I agree with all of the previous reviews - you definitely have to safety pin the top buttons or else they come unsnapped. The fabric also bunched kind of weird in the front but I'm pretty sure I was the only one that noticed that! I wore it with a Nubra but probably could've gotten away with no bra because the fabric was so thick. I would rent this dress again!

The back of this dress is a knock-out!

I wore this dress to a NYE party at a bar in the lower east side. It fit like a glove and was the perfect length (I wore black tights underneath but only because it was freezing, definitely didn't need them) YOU MUST HAVE SAFETY PINS!!! For whatever reason the buttons on the back would not stay closed for anything. The second I moved my shoulders, they popped open. So annoying when I was trying it on and didn't have anyone around to help me pin it. Thank god for safety pins and good friends to do the pinning. Quick fix! Anyways, the dress was gorgeous and perfect for NYE. Loved the way it showed off my curves and the open back was so sexy. I didn't wear a bra (just pasties... Again... It was freezing) and it was perfectly fine, if not way more comfortable that way. Would be a 5 star if not for the faulty buttons.

I wore this dress for our rehearsal dinner. The fit was great but I did have to use a safety pin to hold the top button closed in the back. I was complimented all night long! I keep saying I will definitely rent this one again for a wedding!

Sexy AND classy

This dress is more business in the front party in the back… Was super comfortable but the only complaint that I have is the fact that as indicated by the other reviews, the back snap was very easy to come unlatched. My friends and I got around that by safety pinning it before we left the hotel room.

I got so many complements on this dress and my boyfriend loved it.

The dress was beautiful! I didn't have the problem with the clips at the back of the neck like others did. There was a small hole in the lace on the front of the dress though. I pinned it and no one could tell.

This is a great dress overall! Wore it for fancy dinner and show in Vegas.

The open back is sexy! Other reviews said the back top bottoms don't stay snapped, so I brought safety pins along. Need them! Both sizes fit but went with the 10 for a little extra length. The dress is hot and fun! Just bring safety pins and if you are a tall girl wear tights!

Comfortable dress, lots of compliments

This dress was great. Like everything I've gotten from RTR, it was a tad big, despite reviews that it runs small. However it did fit better than any other dress I've gotten.

Beautiful, but.... Wish it would have worked..

Beautiful lace work & amazing back design... Body con style dress & better for a night out with the girls... Unfortunately I had to change into another dress before the reception.. the following happened.... Recent weight gain has my dress size all over the place. I sized up and the 10 Rode up WAY too much when I walked.... Hot muggy day made the dress uncomfortable & not very breathable despite the open back. My v-back bra did NOT work at all... As other reviews stated, the buttons on the back NEED to be pinned otherwise you will be exposing yourself to the other guests at your event. I wish this dress could have worked. Definitely needed more material for length. Thankfully I had my go-to LBD with me and changed into that after the ceremony so I could enjoy the reception.

Fits true to size. I have an athletic build and the 4 fit perfectly! I received several compliments and it was the perfect dress for a November wedding. I wore it with black tights because of the 30 degree weather and it looked great.

This dress fits like a glove and was probably my favorite RTR yet. Wore it to a wedding and got so many compliments on it. Loved the open back and it actually felt comfortable unlike many open back dresses. Wish I owned this one forever! Love love love!

Fun and classy open back

This was my first rental with RTR. The dress I originally wanted to order was sold out so I rented this dress instead. I was impressed by the way the dress was packaged. It came on a hanger, in a garment bag and return label was easy to locate. I wore this to a coworkers wedding on the beach in April, so I wanted something with sleeves. I usually wear a size 2 but wore the size 4 instead because the sleeves were tight. The rest of the dress fit comparably in both sizes, only difference being the sleeves. As anticipated from reading previous reviews, the top snap on the back of the dress didn't stay, so I used a large safety pin. I used fashion tape on the bottom of the open back to keep the dress close to my body. I love the open back, it's the right amount of fun and classy. It was perfect for the occasion.

I loved this dress so much I rented it twice. The only issue was the buttons on neck weren't secure but nothing a Bobby pin couldn't fix :) Perfect condition with both rentals. Wish I could have bought this one!

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.

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.

2nd dress didnt wear out....

Runs large...I could have easily sized down maybe even two sizes... It was to formal for my outing...deff a business party dress. The open back makes the front very loose. So its hard to wear a bra that wont show but with out a bra you have no support with that dress...still a lovely dress with a very appropriate length.
