Rented this dress last minute for a wedding. Runs true to size!
Great dress! Not too short, no problems with it shifting in the front despite being backless. It tended to ride up a little but not too much. If rent it again.

I received a lot of compliments on this dress. Perfect for a party!
I ordered the 2 and the 4. Since this is an open back, the 4 was too big in the back and the sides kept puckering. The material in the back on the size 2 dress laid a little bit better so I wore that one. I lucked out and did not need a bra with the 2, but I did use fashion tape around the back. It's a little bit short, so I wear flats with this dress. Loved it for my engagement party.

Compliments All Night Long!
Great dress for a summer wedding! As other reviews have said, the open back does bunch a little, but if that doesn't bother you no problem! I didn't need a bra and felt very comfortable all night!! Would rent again!

Beautiful AND comfortable!
Fits perfectly. I wear a size 2 at Banana and JCrew, but this worked great at size 4. For as short as the dress looks in the product photo, I was surprisingly never worried about length during the event. So many compliments, would wear it again!!

Favorite!!! Bachelorette party in Boston
LOVED this dress. I wore it for my bachelorette party in Boston. I felt classy and sexy at the same time. I was comfortable all night long. Because of the backless aspect, you cannot wear a normal bra. I chose to go braless as the dress is thick and I felt offered enough coverage.

Red carpet and party hybrid dress
I truly loved this dress! I ordered it for the ESPYs so needed a dress that was formal yet sporty. The dress fit nicely around the chest but a little bit around the waist, but overall it was comfortable and received a ton of compliments

Rehearsal dinner stunner
This dress was great for our rehearsal dinner. The open back is a sexy surprise. The lining showed at the bottom so that was frustrating, material was thick enough that no bra was needed

Great 1st RTR experience
First of all, I was amazed and excited when I got the box with both of the dresses. I ordered a 4 and a 6, and didn't even try the 6. The dress runs true to size. I got many compliments on the dress. It was very comfortable and light. Now, let's talk about the open back... I love dresses with open backs and to be honest, this was one of the reasons why I picked this dress. Based on the dress review, I got the fashion tape and only had it on for less than an hour. The fabric kept sliding away and I felt uncomfortable being worried about the tape showing, so I decided to just remove them and enjoy my dress. Yes, the fabric opens a little bit but it's not a big deal. It's a beautiful dress, and I will use RTR for future events.

Classy fun
5'2, 120 lbs, hourglass shape, 32C bra size Great dress. I wore size 2. I have a big butt so the 0 ended up getting caught at my hips. Beautiful dress. Ended at my mid-upper thigh. I did not feel the need to wear a bra.

Loved it!! Beautiful dress, got a lot of compliments.
I absolutely loved this dress! I am 5'0 ft and wore the size 2, could have definitely worn the size 4 but 2 was a little more form fitting. Length wise, it fit amazing, which is really difficult seeing as how short I am! Material is a bit thicker..I wore it for an outside summer wedding and was definitely hot in it. I would rent again!

Loved this dress, perfect for a formal summer wedding. The open back really made the dress!
Glad I ordered 2 sizes. I'm 5'2 and the 0 fit like a glove, but the shoulders were frayed and showed the shoulder pads. The size 2 gave me a little bit more room, and shoulders weren't as bad.

This gorgeous dress was really a stand-out at the June wedding I attended!
This dress was so beautiful! I ordered the 12 and 14. I ended up wearing the 14, even though the 12 actually fit better overall but was inappropriately short. The open back of the dress was super cute but on the 14 it was a little baggy when I leaned over or moved certain ways. I'm not sure if that was because I'm not very big in the breast area or because it had been worn multiple times. Anyway, it wasn't a deal breaker. The zipper was a little tough to zip up and I think that was due to it being worn a lot. Overall, I loved this dress! It was comfortable and I have never received so many compliments on a dress before! This was the first dress I've ever worn from RTR and I will definitively be ordering again!

So many compliments!
This dress was incredible. True to size. I am usually a 6 but also got an 8 based on the other reviews saying it was short. I stuck with the 6 and had no problems. I used some fashion tape to secure the dress to the tops of my shoulders so I wouldn't have to worry while I was getting my boogie on. It was mid thigh so it was slightly short of you want a more conservative piece this may not be it. I wore a sticky bra and felt secure! Would rent again!

Fit like a glove!
LOVED THIS DRESS. If you're even thinking about renting this dress, look no longer. The moment I put it on I felt like a million bucks. This was my first RTR experience and I will be absolutely be doing this again. The dress looked gorgeous on and did not feel as short as I had expected. There was some gentle wear and tear to the dress but nothing anyone else would notice. The back of the looked amazing. I didn't have much of an issue with the sleeves falling. It did ride up a bit when dancing though. No bra/support needed whatsoever, the material was thick enough to feel that everything was held in place.

Beautiful dress!
I had planned to wear this to my bachelorette party, but I had found another dress that was pure white that I decided to wear instead. I ordered a 2, the fit was great in the waist and hips (just about perfect) however I have very tiny shoulders. I was able to keep the shoulders on but they could easily slip off, nothing a little double sided tape wouldn't fix!

This dress I rented for my Bachlerorette party last year around sept!
This is a beautiful dress-I received compliments on my dress all night! Pros-great fit for my body, gorgeous, sparkly!!!!, no need to dry clean after use! Cons-some itchiness when arms are down at your sides BUT barely noticed throughout night. Helpful hints: If your like me and always feel doubtful of your size, get the second FREE size. You really never know how ANYTHING fits until you try it on. I would recommend this to anyone I hear talking about needing a dress for any occasion. Great idea and you'll feel like a million bucks too!!!

I ended up not wearing this dress for my event, which was a shame because I had such high hopes!
This dress is definitely ideal for someone who's proportionate top to bottom. I'm slightly smaller on top than bottom, and could have worn the 2 but it would have definitely required a Nu-bra and fashion tape. I don't think I could have gone down to a zero because it would have been too tight in the hips. I knew I was going to be dancing in this dress, and I was concerned that the open back would have been complicated to deal with while dancing. I opted to go with the alternate dress I'd selected from RTR. The other thing I'll note is that this dress is on it's last leg, the lace around the arms and skirt was pretty ragged. Kind of disappointing for a dress at that price point. But, if you're going to be standing relatively still, and you're propotionate, or even a bit bustier, this dress would be great. It's gorgeous and super fun.

Classy Sexy Dress
I wore this dress to a black tie wedding in NYC. This picture does not do this dress justice. I received compliments all night! I got stopped in the street, I overheard people talking about the dress sitting at a restaurant outside, I got stopped in the bathroom and on and on....This dress is one hot little number but soo classy. I was slightly between sizes. I chose the 6 due to the (shorter) length. I could have gone with the 8 and been more comfortable but that's not the point :) No need to use a ton of accessories with this dress as it is a statement in itself. I paired the dress with a small gold bracelet, large (fake) diamond earings, light gold shoes and a light gold clutch. Fantastic! This was my first RTR experience and I am sold.

Hot little number!
This is a super-flattering, fun, sexy dress. BUT it is REALLY short. I am 5'6" and literally did not have an inch to spare. If you're any taller, you won't be able to sit or lift your arms. Other than that, it runs absolutely true to size. The material is thick, so no sticky bra needed, and the lace is excellent quality. It was a really fun look for a wedding and it got compliments all night.

Hot little classy number
Like other reviews mentioned, it can ride up a little and the shoulders aren't super secure so they slip a little bit nothing that bothered me all night. It was comfortable to dance in and I did a lot of dancing that night. I am nearly 5'4 so it didn't fall short on me at all. Tons of compliments. Wore a soft gold heel, worked well. Not sure how this does in the heat since the wedding was in Savannah, Ga but it rained so it was a cooler temp. I would recommend this dress and would wear again

The color, fit and back made this dress so much fun to wear!
LOVED this dress. Was worried about how the 0 would fit since I have a larger bust size, however the slip fabric of the dress was very forgiving so I fit nicely. No issues with the back puckering like others had. Overall I had a great time in this dress and it was perfect for the special occasion .

Such a fun, flirty, and classy dress!! Your heart will explode over this little number!! <3
This dress was perfect for my after party, the night of my Bellagio, Vegas wedding! It showed a lot of leg...so fun!! Heads-up, it fits a little snug in the shoulders, but it's not restricting. I absolutely LOVED the back! I'm sorry I don't have a photo of the back...but trust me, it's HOT! This dress is a game-changer for sure. I am going to rent this again in July for our summer lake reception in Montana!

Super comfortable to wear and received a ton of compliments!
This dress was amazing - glitzy without being over the top....received a ton of compliments all night. Definitely ran true to size.....and the fabric was thick enough that I was not uncomfortable going braless on a cold night and it was fairly forgiving. It killed me to send it back and I would definitely rent again! Note - I'm petite but if I were a few inches taller, this dress would be uncomfortably short. I found myself tugging on it when I sat down.

It's a head turner!
Very cute dress. I have worn this one before and it's always a hit and I receive lots of compliments. It's very, very short, but the high neckline offsets the length so it still feels classy and sophisticated. Both the 6 and 8 fit, but I wore the 8 for a little more comfort with the length (it was still short), which made it a little looser on top. I'm a curvy 6, so the i felt more appropriate in the 8. Will continue to rent this one - it's a tried and true stand by.
