GREAT party dress!
LOVE this sheath. The blue is such a pretty color and it has just the right amount of sparkle! It also has a decent amount of stretch so I felt really comfortable in this despite the open back. Easy to dance and move in - 100% recommend!

I'm thinking about renting this dress for NYE but I"m very small chested. I often rely on a padded bra which obviously can't be worn with this dress. How do you think the fit will be? I don't want to look like a little boy in sequins.
KatDecember 15, 2013
I would get a backless, adhesive bra to wear with this. I did and I had no issues all night

Perfect Holiday Dress
I loved wearing this dress! the color and fit were great. Easy to dance in. Comfortable. And of course the back was the best part! I ended up wearing size 0. Everywhere fit perfectly. My only qualm about the dress would be the shoulders slipping down a couple time while readjusting. I received many compliments throughout the night! I would recommend this dress for a fun GNO or festive party!

This dress was the perfect mix between classy and sexy!
The fit is very comfortable with a lot of stretch! If i could go back and change one thing I would have gone with a size 2!

Hi! Our measurements are very similar so I was wondering if you wore this dress with an adhesive bra or without a bra. Thanks!

Dress was true to size. I'm 5'6, 123 lbs and wore the XS and it fit nice. Looks good with tights and pumps and/or booties.

This dress was great! I received a lot of compliments on it.
The fabric and fit were very comfortable. The only problem was that it ran a little large in the shoulders and I had to pin it to keep it from sliding off my shoulders. Other than that it was very easy and very flattering.

Perfect fit, Fantastic Party dress!
I originally ordered a Herve Ledger dress but didn't love it at all. RTR was AMAZING to work with and shipped this gorgeous dress out within an hour of my writing so I could have something to wear for my party the next day. And it was a HUGE hit! I am 5'1 so it's always tough for me to find things that work, but the length and fit was perfect. I loved the open back and sassiness of this dress. Would definitely recommend!

Holiday party hit
Such a fun and comfortable dress. I was a little concerned by how unstructured the dress was (there's not a zipper to be found on this), but was pleasantly surprised by how well the dress ended up fitting. The deep back is super sexy and is a fun twist on most chest-baring dresses - especially for those of us that are a little less fortunate in that area. I would size down in most cases because there is nothing to keep the back in place unless it's more on the fitted side.

Perfect dress for any party - definitely recommended!
I wore this dress to a formal & loved it! This picture was unfortunately the best I got for the night, so it doesn't really do the dress justice. I felt comfortable dancing in it and didn't have any issues with sequins snagging. The only thing is that the shoulders of the dress aren't very snug. They would slide down every so often, but it wasn't a huge issue and could easily be fixed. I definitely recommend renting this, I would again.

Sparkling, beautiful and comfortable
Loved this dress! The sequins feel nice and don't scratch, the deep navy color is perfect for winter events and the material is form fitting, yet comfortable. I especially liked the high neckline paired with the daring low back. The dress looks much shorter in the picture, so taller/curvier girls need not worry about the dress being too short or riding up.

Not great.
This dress was picked by the RTR team and sent to me to replace the dress I originally ordered, but had been returned by the previous renter as damaged. The RTR team called and was helpful but I was disappointed in this dress. The sequins were painful under my arms and the cap sleeves had been stretched out so they wouldn't lay correctly-- the lining was showing pretty badly out from the edges of the sleeves...which made the whole thing just look cheap. They sent a size 6 (way too big up top) and I ended up going with a different dress.

Big style for little girl
This dress is absolutely beautiful. For some reason, I thought it would be very structured and stiff but it was just the opposite. It's light weight with a fair amount of stretch so it clings to the body and the sequins highlight every curve. There was a little gaping towards the bottom of the open back but it was not unattractive. The color was the perfect alternative to the LBD. In daylight it looks/photos almost royal blue but at night it is navy. I would say that it's true to size, I ordered the 2 & 4 and would have worn the 2 had I actually worn the dress (I didn't make it to the event). I am a very compact/short limbed person so the length was spot on… but I would say this would be super short on the average girl. My only suggestion would be some fashion tape on the shoulders for a little security. Its definitely a no bra dress.

Use fashion tape for shoulders! It easily slips off. The tight overall is pretty tight.

Too short for me (5'10'')
I ordered this dress for a wedding. It looked short online, but when I received it in the mail and tried it on it was way too short for a wedding. I am 5'10 so this may not be an issue for shorter people. The fabric was beautiful and looked brand new though. I emailed that night and RTR was able to ship me out a dress the next day. They were very very helpful with multiple emails back and forth until I ordered a great dress! Thanks again RTR!

Perfect holiday dress!
This is one of my favorite RTR dresses! I wish I could buy this dress somewhere. It is simply the perfect holiday dress for Christmas or NYE. It's sparkly without being too flashy, sexy without being too showy, and a very comfortable fit (not tight and the sequins aren't too scratchy). The open back is simply darling and is what makes this dress. I think it is also the perfect length for petite girls like me. Love, love, LOVE it.

OBSESSED
I rented this dress for a new years eve party and I LOVED it! I have super wide hips and so I can rarely wear fitted dresses but this dress looked amazing and didn't make me feel self conscious at all about my hips. It is fitted it all the right place and the back was fabulous!

Simply Beautiful
I absolutely loved this dress! The color is a deep blue and the sparkle from the sequins are perfect. One of the most comfortable and flattering dresses I have worn, I would love to own this one I would wear it over and over again. The only problem I did have was that it was to large in the shoulders, next time I would order a 2, I wear normally a 4 but sometimes a 2 and this would be one of those dresses to size down. I spoke to one of the RTR girls and she suggested that I pin it which I did and that really helped!

This dress saved my bday!
Loved this dress! It was a back up dress sent by RTR the day of my event because my other dresses didn't work. It runs a little big, normally I am an 8, the 6 fit perfectly, so I would go at least a size down on this one. It's a stretchy fabric no zipper. I went braless, and because of the thick fabric the girls stayed in place. The sequins were slightly itchy but nothing too bad, pretty comfortable other than that. It was the perfect party dress for Vegas but still classy enough to wear to a semi-formal event.

Fun and flirty!
I loved this dress. The sizing was kind of funky. The 2 and the 4 were almost the exact same size; the only difference was that the 4 was about half an inch longer. I ended up wearing the 4 because the 2 was a little too short on me! I loved the dress and got a lot of compliments on it!

I think this would fit true to size if you're busty… but I am average :) Also, the waistline is cut in an awkward place.

I wore this dress on NYE and it was absolutely spectacular! I got compliments all night on it.
Pros: - comfortable - great color - flattering style Cons: - the lining on the sleeves kept showing even when I pushed it back under - the back fit a little big, this dress could have only gotten better if it hugged my back more instead of drooping out - this may have been because of multiple wearers beforehand

Loved the navy color and stood out nicely for my formal!
Great length; wasn't too short. It was not itchy at all, the inside is lined well to make it comfortable. I found it to be slightly large around my shoulders and concerned about it sliding off, but the dress tape (provided by RTR) solved this issue completely.

My favorite RTR dress yet!
This navy sequin dress is fantastic. I didn't realize it had a low cut back when I ordered, but it was an excellent surprise, really gave the dress some edge! The dress fit me perfectly. I didn't have to worry about the sleeves being loose or falling down while I was dancing. The dress hit me at mid-thigh.

Looks better online
I received this dress as a back up to my original order. I wanted to wear this to my company's holiday party since I didn't like the fit of my original dress. This dress was too short for me. The back was cute and yes you do need a back less bra. Size 4 fits well at the waist and hips but not at the shoulders. It was falling down and requires tape.

Fun, sexy dress for my birthday!
I wore this dress out in Chapel Hill for my 22nd birthday. I got a lot of compliments on it and it was very comfortable. Loved the blue too! I am typically a size 2 (5'4" jeans 26, 34D) and I wore the 2. I actually didn't wear a bra or sticky boobs with this and it worked fine because the dress is thick enough. I loved the backless look-- wish I had gotten a picture of it but my phone was actually stolen that night! So these pictures don't do it justice! The length was perfect for a night out. I'd highly recommend this dress!

Very cute in pictures and the low back detail makes the dress!
Loved the dress…only drawback, the underarm slits are a little wide and expose more than it should. Standing in a position that shows that does make the dress look awkward, but overall, I did enjoy wearing it!

Perfect Party Dress
I ordered this dress in size 2 and 4 to hedge my bets and the 2 fit almost perfect. It fit well on the top and around the waist and hips, however, even at 5'4 this dress was pretty short. If you plan on dancing in it at all, beware of it riding up and the top coming off the shoulders. Overall I got a lot of compliments and felt pretty in it.

NYE dress
I was very excited for this one, but it just didn't work out for me. The material isn't as heavy as other beaded/sequin dresses and because of this it wasn't as flattering. I also found the shoulders to be ill-fitting making me look far more broad than normal.

I wore this dress to a Lunar New Year celebration where my A Cappella group performed.
The fit was amazing. The dress hugged my curves in all the right places, and the thick fabric allowed me to go bra-less without worrying about support issues. The cap sleeves, which I thought would be a problem due to my broad shoulders, were actually not an issue at all and laid nicely. Fashion tape was not needed for the back. The picture on the site does not do the color and sparkle justice. It is a slightly brighter dark blue, and the sequins provide a nice level of shine. I definitely recommend this dress for formal occasions when you want to be a bit daring.

Lovely dress
I usually wear a size 4 but after reading all the other reviews I decided to also go with a 2. Glad I did! I'm a huge fan of open-back dresses and this dress is wonderful. This was the first time I ordered from RTR and will continue doing so.

Too short!!
I ordered this dress in a size 2 and 4 and both were way too short, I am 5'4" and usually wear size 2. The 4 fit much better than the 2 but it was way too inappropriate to wear in public! Would fit much better on someone shorter. Beautiful color and the back was very pretty!

Sexy but still appropriate for a formal affair.
I got lots of compliments on this dress. It was a bit shorter than I expected but it didn't feel too short. The back gives it a little bit of edge. I would HIGHLY recommend the dress tape. I didn't order any but RTR happened to include a sample, otherwise it wouldn't have stayed on me very long. Way to anticipate my difficulty RTR!

Fun and sexy!
I wore this for my birthday dinner. I ordered the 0 and 2. The 0 could have worked, but my broad shoulders made the cap sleeves pull a little. The 2 didn't fit mch different, it was just a little more forgiving in the shoulders. I got a few compliments from strangers which always makes me feel awesome! Overall, I had another great RTR experience!

This dress was my first RTR experience. I loved it!! The overall fit of the dress was great. The back gaps a little so definitely use the tape provided to help hold it in place.

The color and just right amount of "shimmer" was great for my winter birthday party.
The open back is cut beautifully but being pear shaped the top was a little loose in both the 6 and 4. The color is gorgeous and overall the dress is comfortable, despite being covered in sequins (sometimes those sequins irritate underarms!). I'd recommend for a party.

Short :(
Loved this dress when I got it, but both sizes 4 and 6 were too short for me. Now mind you it was my husbands work party where he was getting recognized in his industry so I felt like I couldn't got too short, but I could sit down without being uncomfortable for sure.
