This dress was even better in person! It was absolutely beautiful on! Endless compliments all night!

This fit like a dream. The closest thing I can come up with for a con is that it's a little thicker than I expected which made it super comfortable, but was a little warm to dance in! I would definitely rent this dress again.

All the compliments, I felt great.

I'm a girl with a way bigger lower body than upper body. The dress was a little tight but looked great and was very comfortable. The back looked good but I had to use some fashion tape because it was big from the top but other than that it was one of the best purchases I've ever made, and I loved all the compliments.

So many compliments!

I wore this to my sorority's winter formal. Perfect length, classy, elegant, looks amazing in pictures. So unique and non-traditional..everyone was asking where I had gotten it. Only con was that I had to return it!

Dress runs true to size, since it is backless be sure to plan on some type of support.

Great dress, definitely stood out. It was classy and stylish.

Rented a 2 and a 4, ended up going with a 4 because it was a lot more comfortable. I had to use some tape on the shoulder and a strapless bar but it looked fabulous. Will definitely use RTR again!

Perfect for my holiday party!

I ordered two sizes, a 0 and 2. I chose to wear the size 2. The top fit perfectly but it was a bit snug in the hips which made it ride up a little when I stood up. I received many compliments the whole night. Loved it!

Fun party dress. Drop back, no bra

Fabric was stretchy and thick. Felt great! Great party dress, not good for wedding because of the color. The cap sleeves and the drop back took me a while to get accustomed to it. I had to go down a size for better fit.

Received so many compliments

Definitely hard for those of us with larger busts. I knew that going in tho - I just fell in love with the dress for my rehearsal. Advice don't do it if you have a very large bust unless you fall hopelessly in love with it like I did. Ha! Perfect for anyone with b cups tho! This dress is a jaw dropper. I was so happy I selected it. Love rtr

I felt gorgeous all night!!!

After reading reviews, my biggest concern was that the dress would be too short to look classy at a wedding on my 5'11" frame. That was not the case at all!! I did wear dark tights for a little extra coverage, but the dress hit mid-thigh, just above my fingertips with my arms at my sides. I couldn't dance with my arms up above my head but otherwise the length was not a problem. I wore a backless bra to stay lifted but if you have a smaller chest the fabric is thick enough to go bra-less. My only minor issue with the dress was that it had two linings, and the innermost lining kept riding up while I was getting ready, creating a wrinkle in the skirt... Thankfully this was easily solved by safety pinning the linings together at the side seam on either side. All in all I LOVED this dress... Got compliments all night and my boyfriend was all about it!!

Beautiful color, and comfortable!

For the most part, the fit was true to size, however- like other reviews it does gape at the back. I used fashion tape to hold the cap sleeves up and that worked. Some photos I took did show the gaping back, but it didn't bother me. I danced in it, so it is definitely comfortable. Short but not inappropriate. I am normally a size 8, 36DD so I had a Fashion Forms bra on just for piece of mind.

Super fun dress - perfect for New Years Eve Party. Did have to tape the back with fashion tape.

Really loved wearing this dress. A little short, but not too much. A little tight in the shoulders, but fine. Recommend a tan if you're light skinned. I do usually wear Size zero, but Zero was too tight in the chest area and size 2 was perfect!

The back of the dress is stunning

Loved this dress. Im not used to wearing a high neck or cap sleeves so it was a little strange. I did find this dress to be true to size. Unusually wear a 4 or 6. Both fit but I felt the 6 gave more room In the bust area. I wear a 32 D. I didn't need a bra bc the material held well.

Great dress!

I love this dress! It was great; however, it was incredibly short for me. I'm about 5'10 flat footed and if I were any taller, I think it would've been borderline inappropriate. And don't get me wrong, I like short, minidresses.

Beautiful & Classy!

I have to thank RTR's stylists for saving the day on this one! I had ordered a different dress that was wayyyyy too short (I'm talking bum cheeks short) and freaked out late the night before my holiday party at work. One of the fabulous stylists got right back to me over email and prepared this dress to ship first thing in the am. It came in plenty of time for the party and it was even more beautiful in person! The length is short but totally appropriate and classy. The fabric is high quality and the color, though light, didn't wash me out. It runs a little big and the back didn't stay snug but that didn't bother me like I thought it would from reading other reviews. It was also perfect for the winter wonderland theme! One of my favorite rentals!!

My favorite dress from RTR. Wore it for my college graduation party and was complemented all night.

I was worried the dress would fit tight but it was the most comfortable dress I have rented and is so elegant, sexy and fun.

If you typically need a dress that gives shape, not the dress...

The actual dress is beautiful but I felt like it was not very flattering on me. I have a boxy type figure and sometimes need the dress to give curves, etc. This dress kinda just hung on me, sheath style. And it was pretty fitted. Just not my favorite but the lace and fabric is beautiful.

It was super convenient. And was easy to return! I loved this dress!

This dress was very comfortable and the fabric is thick enough that you don't have to wear a bar if you are a small bra size. I really loved the details of the dress and I got compliments all night! I ordered a size two and four. The four ended up fitting better but was a little loose in some areas but it wasn't too noticeable! I would loved to rent another dress for and an upcoming wedding it was an awesome experience!

Even more gorgeous in person. Fit like a glove. Got so many compliments. Perfect length. (Mid-thigh) I think I got more compliments than the bride. Do not second guess this decision. Even very breathable in the mid summer heat.

The dress was so gorgeous, flattering and comfortable. Perfect fit.

The dress was extremely comfortable and wasn't too tight or short. The fabric was stretchy and was perfect for dancing. I was worried about the open back and thought I would need a sticky bra but since the fabric is so thick I was able to go without and it was very comfortable. My favourite dress that I've rented by far! I got compliments all night and felt great while I was wearing it!

Beautiful dress!!

This dress is absolutely beautiful. The open back was such a hit and I received compliments all night. Material was thick enough that I didn't need to wear a bra. Bottom half was a bit tight across my hips and showed some lines. Definitely need fashion tape to hold the back down. Overall, beautiful dress.

So many compliments!

Beautiful lace. I felt super pretty in this all night. The 2 fit my figure a bit better but was way too short. I ended up wearing the 4 for the extra length. I didn't have any trouble with the back laying flat but I am a little bit more broad across the shoulders.

This dress is so pretty in person

This dress runs a little big but again I am petite so that's probably why. I loved this dress though and received tons of comments on it. I'm not fussy with the fit of clothes so the looseness of the back did not bother me but( from the picture you can see what I'm referring to ) if you like a tight fit definitely size down .

Great fit and look

The dress fit perfectly. I wore a backless bra because I thought it looked better. You don't need one if you don't want to wear it. I got a lot of compliments on the dress (especially the back) and the RTR experience was really simple.

Absolutely perfect, was complimented all night!

I wore this to a formal dance and it was perfect. I usually wear a 6 and that's the size I ended up wearing. Great length, not too short and very classy. The open back looked weird in some pictures but I didn't have great fashion tape, so I would be sure to get some of that! Hated sending it back, but I definitely recommend it.

Got many complements on this dress!! Great length and fit through the midsection and hips.

Only downside to this dress was the back. I was most excited about it but it did not stay down properly. I had to apply fashion tape and pins to help stay in place. Otherwise a great dress for many occasions and everyone loved it!!

Loved the dress and the fit. Wouldn't change anything about it. Great dress! It's fitted around the hips and thighs but not too tight. The lace and metallic design on the lace made it fancy enough, not too over the top.

Wore this dress for my bachelorette dinner and it was a hit!

I definitely stood out as the bride to be :) Size 2 was fitted throughout but seemed a little constricting around the arm/chest area. I'm a 34D So I wore my backup size 4 for comfort up top.

It was a great color and the back was beautiful. My only complaint was that t was pretty loose up top and and ran large. I would rent this again and was great for my height.
