Wore it for New Years and loved it!

GREAT dress. Pros, stretchy, comfortable, fits well. So many compliments. Cons, the snaps in the back (my favorite part) will occasionally come undone. I recommend a pin but was so lovely.

Love the packaging!!

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.

Beautiful lace dress

Wore this for a formal affair for work and it was perfect. Liked the lace detail but the back is what made it really special. Would love to own!

Thumbs up for fun contrast-y conservative/daring dress; not great for active dancing

- I'm 5'2'' and the dress was surprisingly short. - The buttons in the back popped as other reviews said; used two safety pins to keep them in place which worked well, so no problems there. - The material is not light-weight; I would have been warm if at an outdoor warm weather occasion. Just right for air-conditioning or spring/fall nighttime. - Wouldn't recommend this dress for active dancing or anything requiring moving arms up/down. I wore this for a night out salsa dancing which involved lifting my arms over my head numerous times and the (already short) dress rode up in every case; the sleeves do not allow much range of motion. - I liked the conservative-ish no-skin-showing front and the interesting, more daring back. Some events call for such a combo.

Perfect wedding guest dress!

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!

Too tight and short

This dress was way too tight and short. It didn't come in any larger so I wasn't able to wear it.

Stunning.

I loved this dress. Couldn't wear a bra, so I got those sticky cups, and wore the smaller size. It was comfortable and beautiful. Received compliments all night long.

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!

Overall the dress sized a bit small but the style was perfect for a NYE cocktail party.

This dress was perfect for NYE. I ordered the size 4 and size 6. The size 4 was a bit too tight in the arms - I workout, so I have muscular shoulders and arms. The size 6 fit great. The length was short enough to feel like a party dress for NYE and the open back was eye catching.

Business in the front; party in the back

Beautiful dress, but VERY TIGHT and SHORT. Maybe size up to be more comfortable. I was constantly preoccupied with pulling it down and had to wear shapewear. Love the sleeves and love the back. Back is daring and and sexy, but cannot wear a bra. I wore pasties, which still made me a little self conscious. I also had to pin the snap on the back to stay fastened. Overall good dress, but I could have used a bigger size.

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!

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.

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!
