Fun and flirty
This dress was great for a bachelorette weekend. It was a comfortable length that was classy but flirty. It photographs really well.

Love this dress!
This dress was just what I was looking for. I had a huge birthday celebration for my 25th out and it was a hit. The open back was perfect. With larger boobs, I am always nervous having a backless dress but true to the reviews, you are totally fine without one. The dress was comfy and fit very well! The edged of the dress were a little frayed but only if you looked closely would you notice. I would highly recommend this dress for a 'Wow' response! Super cute!

Perfect dress for my rehearsal dinner
The dress runs pretty true to size. I ordered the size up based on the reviews, but it was too big in the back and bust. It is a little short, but not enough for me to not wear it. Overall great dress and perfect for numerous occasions.

Did not wear. Dress looks great but fit was too short and fitted for my formal event.
The fit was "fun" but I need a more formal look. Great wedding guest or party dress.

This was an awesome dress!
Loved every minute of wearing it! It's a little on the shorter side since I'm 5'7. That's why I went with the 6 and not the 4, but I would rent again!!!

I was a hot mommy!
The fit was perfect and like what many others said before me, there is no need for bra. It was a bit short, so I had to pay extra attention to the dress when I had to bend over to pick things up. The fabric looks a bit worn out. But overall, I loved the dress and the fitting.

This dress looked beautiful for my company holiday party!
This dress showed enough leg to get attention, but wasn't short enough on my frame to be scandalous. The thicker fabric of the dress was great because it didn't show all of those little problem areas. I would rethink this for a company event if I did it over again. It was a Christmas party and everyone side hugged me to say Merry Christmas and it was instantly more intimate because they were touching my bare back. Was beautiful, but would probably wear this to some sort of wedding festivities instead.

Bachelorette Party Dress
I wore for this for my bachelorette party in Savannah, GA. The color and design were perfect for the occasion. I do wish I had gotten the next size up, though. I usually don't like dresses that are fitted on the bottom as I have athletic thighs/booty, but I figured for my Bachelorette party I wanted to be a little less conservative! But I ended up pulling down on the skirt all night, and the lace overlay would ride up above the lining. I originally used sticky tape as other reviewers suggested for the back, but ended up pulling it off to be more comfortable - I don't think it looked bad to have the back gap a little bit. Beautiful dress, just not the most flattering/comfortable fit for my body type.

It was perfect for a formal cocktail event.
I really liked this dress. I had to size up because there was a flaw on the 0, but it still worked and I ended up preferring the length of the 2. I had to use some double sided fashion tape for the back, but it worked perfectly and stayed all night.

Loved the open back! Received lots of compliments!
Please excuse my post-shower pictures! I absolutely loved this dress! The color was beautiful and it fit really well. The edges did seem to be a little rough and I could tell it had been worn a time or two, but I don't think it was noticeable to the naked eye. I only say that it runs large because of the gaping I experienced in the back. I know this is a relatively easy fix with some tape, but I didn't have any on me when it really started to bug me. I'm short (5'), so I felt as though the dress was a perfect length and definitely not too short! Overall, I loved it and it was perfect for the event!

Classy + Sexy Win Win!
Very pretty dress! I was torn between the size 2 and 4. I normally wear a 0-2 but ended up going with the 4 only because it was more comfortable and appropriate for my husbands work function. I remember the coloring was also slightly different between the 2 sizes, but nothing crazy. I received many compliments and felt sexy but also classy. The dress is on the shorter side and I am medium height. It also had trouble staying against my skin in the back; sticky tape is a must! Overall satisfied.

Too Short
The fit was pretty good and the open back was beautiful, but be prepared this dress is very short! I'm 5'5. Also it's more brown than it appears in the photo.

Great dress
I ordered the zero but it was not available so I wore the size 2. It was very comfortable and even with the open back the shoulders stayed in place all night. The dress is short but I felt great all night. The only thing I would say is I needed a spray tan because the dress was the same color as my pale skin.

Can I Keep It?!!?!
This dress was fabulous! It was form-fitting but flattering. I sized up for my back-up but might've gone up 2 sizes from my usual dress size but it wasn't a deal breaker. The top didn't have much give in the fabric but because it's backless, it was very comfortable and gave room to move around. The bottom of the dress has some stretch. I loved the dress and will probably rent it again -- I actually wish I could've kept it!!

I looked and felt amazing in this dress for my 29th birthday!
Pros: I have a BIG bust and I was worried about the open back and wearing a bra but the dress fit so well it actually held them up! Plus you know when you wear a tight dress and you have to keep pulling it down? Well you don't have to with this one. It's stays right where it should! Cons: the material from the dress bothered my underarms after a while.

Everyone had very nice compliments on my dress which was great! Felt pretty and was able to dance :)
The dress felt a little bit large on the shoulders and back compared to the waist and hips - which is a little weird because relatively, I have larger shoulders than hips and waist, but still fit me pretty well! It was a great length, and comfortable to sit, dance in, etc. I really loved this dress and was even called elegant!

Perfect bachelorette dress!
True to size for sure. My only complaint would maybe be the length. I'm short (5'1") and even I had to be careful while sitting down! Usually things that are short on other people are totally fine for me. The upside though is I wore it for my bachelorette party, so a little extra leg was no big deal!

Loved For A Million Reasons, Sadly Would NOT Recommend
This dress is so beautiful, and the details in person can't be done justice by photos. It's both gold and silver blended to make a champagne shade with some shine, as there is a little bit of a metallic finish. You can do gold or silver jewelry and it's detailed and has some sparkle, but you can still add to it with accessories without it being too much. The back is very low and very open. I read other reviews where the renters needed double sided tape, but it was constructed really well, so it laid flush against my skin and didn't gap, even when I sat. My breasts are a full-C and you can't wear anything but a stick-on bra with this, which I was concerned about but wasn't an issue. It makes you very aware of your posture but in a great way - to keep the back looking its best you naturally push your shoulders back and stand tall. Truly, it unintentionally adds poise. It fabric was great, thick but not uncomfortable and stretchy. Perfect for a dress where you can't support your breasts the way you normally would. It held me in nicely and I could've worn the smaller size but for the length. I would NOT recommend this for a wedding or any event where you're dancing, walking, or standing and sitting a lot. It is extremely short, but isn't a problem when you're moving except that you have to be constantly aware of it. I spent the entire night pulling it down and fidgeting with it unfortunately. The absolute worst was sitting - I had to keep a dinner napkin over the hem because it rode up so high when you were seated. It was a bit itchy around the underarms but because of the scalloped lace trim but nothing I couldn't deal with.

BEAUTIFUL dress for my 30th birthday bash!
This was an absolutely GORGEOUS dress! It fit perfectly and was incredibly flattering. (I'm 5'3" / petite / 34D.) I wore it to my 30th birthday party and got so many compliments on it the whole night! Highly recommend it -- and I'll probably order it again :)

Very comfortable. Show-stopping back of dress! Received tons of compliments.
Fits true to size. Unable to wear bra, but material is thick enough to hide. Would definitely rent this dress again.

Great color & shimmer for shimmying
Great dress! Pros: -Super fun pattern and different than the standard LBD -Sophisticated in the front but a party in the back -Options for black or nude shoes -Received many compliments Cons: -The back was a bit gappy as others reviewed but it still worked I didn't tape the back because why -I'm a short 5'4" and could see how this would be real short on someone taller

Great for a party!
Great dress for a party! Wore it to my engagement party and loved it. It did run a little big and felt a little loose up top, especially since you can't really wear a bra. Would have loved a smaller size but it was still a great rental!

I loved this dress! Great open back!
I love the shape of this dress, I wore it for my boyfriend's formal. I got the size 2 and 4: the 2 was a little shorter, but I have very narrow shoulders so the top of the size 4 wasn't staying on well so I went with the size 2. It was a great fit overall but I had to pull down the dress every now and then while dancing! I wore a stick on bra so that it appeared I even had boobs but it wasn't really necessary cause of the thick material!

I loved this dress! It was perfect for a night out on the town :) The back was definitely my favorite part — it was super flattering and made me feel like a rockstar! It was a little short, but with black tights the whole look came together perfectly. I would definitely rent this dress again!

Perfect wedding guest attire!
I loved this dress. Very comfortable, true to size, and classy opened back. I wore this to a wedding in September. The wedding colors were champagne and I fit right in with the color of this dress- the pop of silver in it made it really stand out. Had many compliments and went really well with nude heels. Couldn't have been happier with this selection! (Didn't even have to wear a bra with the thick upper material in this).

10/10 would rent again.
I rented this for a fundraising event that I was working. Originally ordered a size 2, but went with the backup size 4 for a little more breathing room as I ran around throughout the night. The dress was incredibly comfortable, and I didn't experience any gaping with the back. No bra necessary = comfort +1

Wedding rehearsal dress with some sass!
This was my first RTR dress. I decided to wear something that wasn't the traditional super white conservative dress for my own wedding rehearsal. I loved the champagne color over something that was white and the open back was sexy without being slutty. I did have to wear a sticky bra, and the back fabric didn't sit tight to my skin, but by no means was the dress falling off. I received many compliments on it! The fabric is a little stretchy and a little heavy in a good way.
