Great Color- Terrible Zipper!
The dress is pretty true to size, and was snug but not too tight on me. The fabric has just the right amount of stretch. A few areas are a bit itchy due to seams on the inside, but I didn't find it unbearable, or too distracting while wearing it. The one downfall was the zipper! There is a seam at about the waistline that the zipper really doesn't want to go past, despite the sides meeting up with no trouble. There is almost a hole in the side of the zipper fabric at the point- it is clear many renters have had it get stuck right there. I was really about to give up and thought I couldn't wear it when my boyfriend broke out the pliers to keep a firm grip on the tiny zipper to muscle it up, and it took him quite a while. Thank God it came undone easily at the end of the night- I was worried I'd be trapped forever. I think the zipper really needs to be replaced, or the dress needs to be retired. Otherwise it is a beautiful, classy dress. I did find the sides of the back gaped a bit, but it didn't bother me, nor did I feel like it looked bad. Small chested women don't need a bra, but even with a snug fit, there isn't much support. Although it looks black, it is actually a deep navy peaking through the lace!

Gorgeous!!
I rented a similar one in silver last year. This one was even better. Absolutely gorgeous in person. Backless, so adhesive bra is necessary unless none is worn. The dress was super comfortable with plenty of give.

Fast, many choices, and great customer service!
Beautiful dress! This dress is very classy! I ordered it for NYE and fell in love with how good it looked on me. Low cut back, but not too much. Sparkly and a good cut.

Fun, backless dress
It is somewhat itchy as it is not lined. You definitely need fashion tape and a sticky bra. It is a great dress to rent; I would not own it.

This dress fit so well! I was worried with the open back but it was amazing and fit like a glove!
This dress fit amazing! Since I'm pear shaped I did have some trouble with it rising up a tiny bit around the back and having to pull it back down but it wasn't too much of a hassle honestly and wasn't noticeable to others. I got a lot of compliments on the open back too!

The dress fit perfectly, I absolutely loved the back of this dress and the way it looked!
I was nervous since my back up size was not available but it worked out great! I LOVED this dress and got so many compliments on it. A lot of reviews say that the back did not stay flat even with fashion tape but I did not have that problem. You will definitely need the tape to keep it in place but it seemed to hold it just right for me. I only wish I had a picture of the back of it on me.

Classy with a daring backline
As others said, the back gaps a little and slid a little low on my shoulders a few times. It probably should have bothered me but it really didn't. I can see how the fabric could feel itchy after a while as well but that also didn't bother me at all. Flattering cut and I liked how it seemed relatively conservative until you turned around. I'll probably where it to my company holiday party as well.

I really liked this dress. It fit my curves well and was playfully sexy.
The back is sexy, but when sitting down the shoulders would fall slightly. My boyfriend mentioned it looked a little big in the back, so tape might be helpful next time. It was also itchy at times not the most pleasant material.

Open back was so beautiful and classy!
I am very petite and was worried the dress wouldn't fit in the shoulders. The XS was perfect. I wish I had had some fashion tape to help keep the back in place, but it wasn't too bad. As other reviewers mentioned, this dress is VERY itchy. I wore a slip skirt underneath and that helped tremendously. Material was thick and flattering--if it hadn't been so itchy I could have gotten away with no bra. I received tons of complements on the dress, I felt so beautiful! Was sad to send it back. Highly recommend!

The perfect combination of fun, sophisticated, and sexy!
I selected this dress for a college friend's fall wedding, and it was exactly what I hoped it would be. It's like a mullet: business in the front; party in the back. The medium fit me like a glove, and the large was significantly larger - I'm not sure if that was how it was cut or if it had just gotten stretched out over time. I did find that the dress hiked up a bit as I walked, but it was manageable. I think that if I was any taller, it probably would have been a bigger issue. Others have mentioned that the fabric is really itchy. Maybe it's because I grew up wearing a lot of sequined dance costumes, but the minor scratchiness of the fabric didn't bother me. I have pretty sensitive skin and I didn't end up with any irritation afterward, either. Obviously, the back of this dress is the big draw. I covered up with a black blazer for the ceremony and then added a little fashion tape so that I could move freely at the reception. The tape definitely helped the edges lay nicely, but it wasn't essential to keeping the dress up. I never felt like it was going to slide off my shoulders, even after the tape lost its stickiness. The only issue I had while dancing was that the sleeves limited my ability to lift my arms the whole way. The fabric is thick, so I felt totally comfortable going braless, and it made the whole dress very flattering. The blue underlay didn't show through much except when we were outside, but I loved that it added a little more dimension to the color. Overall, this was a great first experience with RTR - they sent me back-ups when it looked like this dress wouldn't arrive in time, but I'm so glad that it did. I got a lot of compliments and felt confident that I looked great all night. Definitely give it a try if you're looking for a bold cocktail dress that will impress! P.S.: I also rented the Lilliana Earrings that you see in the photo. I was really pleased with these and thought they added just the right amount of sparkle.

This dress is gorgeous, quality material.
Conservative in the front, sexy in the back! You need to wear an adhesive bra with this dress. I have B/C cups, and it's not flattering without some shape... Also, you can take the top down without much effort, so having the sticky bra adds a layer of comfort for me. I wore it to a wedding that was outside, and it was HOT. but the dress didn't show any signs of perspiration.

Got many compliments on how beautiful the dress is!
The bottom fit really well, however the back pieces to the top had a little too much fabric and fell to the sides. It wasn't ideal, but it wasn't too bad that it couldn't be managed.

back was the best part have to wear no bra or sticky bra since back is low great for tall gals, length is perfect (I'm over 6 feet tall) fancy but not too dressy

Beautiful dress, fits reasonably on tall women, but itchy
Beautiful dress - the fit is AMAZING and hits in all the right places. The dress is a bit strechy, so I imagine it would fit a lot of different body types. The open back is an incredible touch. It gapes a tiny bit, but nothing to worry about. The dress is a bit itchy as the lace is on the inside around the seams. A bit uncomfortable, but worth it!

My daughter ordered this and loves it!!! She'd wear it all the time if she could!
This fit great on her. I was surprised that she was able to get her breasts in there but with the open back, it is forgiving. She said she'd use fashion tape next time on the back sides to make sure it stays flat against her skin but no one else mentioned it to her. So pretty on and makes her look perfectly proportioned!

Great dress for the occasion
I wore this for Valentine's Day in Chicago and loved it! It was longer than expected but it worked out because it was snowing and the extra warmth was nice. The sleeves are a bit scratchy but worth it. Definite yes for tall girls!

Xmas party dress
Wore this to a Xmas party. The dress was beautiful and the fit was great, however I did not give it 5 stars because the back would not stay flat even with fashion tape! Any movement of the arm, as you can see in the picture, the fabric felt loose and would bunch up. Received many compliments on this dress!

Wore it for a formal, LOVED everything about it.
I bought this as a backup and fell in love with it. The material is almost like body con, it holds you in without looking too tight. The backless feature makes it feel sexy without being "too much" and the material has just the perfect amount of shine. Great dress, highly recommend!

Such a fun dress!
Fit true to size and I didn't need a bra which is always a plus! There's some of the sparkly material on the inside of the dress which was really itchy so I wore some high waisted spanx and it was better. I wish I owned this one!

I actually didn't get to wear this dress, but it is beautiful!
I didn't end up getting to wear the dress unfortunately because the wedding I went to, there was a lot of dancing and moving around, and this dress although it is gorgeous is meant for a more serious no crazy dance moves event. I wasnt able to ship it back because I flew out the day I received it, or I am sure I could have gotten an easy return for it. I would recommend it to any one with perky girls who isn't self conscious about needing a lot of support in the bust. Otherwise it is stretchy and an easy fit for most any size. I love this dress and hope to find a reason to wear it in the future!

Awesome, flattering dress!
Dress fit true to size. I used fabric tape to help secure the back and shoulders so it did not feel like it was going to fall off and I doubt it actually would have. It did get a bit itchy towards the end of the night but overall, I loved the dress.

Beautiful and conservative in the front with a sexy backless back.
I loved how this dress looked on. The backless back really have this dress the needed "oomph". It was a slightly bit large in the bust, and I'm not small in this area, so someone with a smaller bust may find this dress hard to wear. I definitely recommend fashion tape on the back to keep the shoulders in place. I got a lot of compliments! It was a tiny bit itchy, though. Loved the dress though!

Looks beautiful, not comfortable
The dress is very pretty and looks flattering from the front. It's form fitting, however, when I walked around, it was riding up and I had to pull it back down every few minutes. The back of the dress was flattering, but it stuck out on the sides. I agree with the other reviews that say this dress was itchy. Overall, I feel like I looked nice but didn't feel comfortable. I probably would not rent this particular dress again.

Friends
Pros: True to size, great condition, metallic lace detail very nice in person, beautiful low back Cons: The dress was not comfortable and it got very hot in it. Also, the shoulders kept slipping off and if I didn't stand perfectly straight, there would be a gape in the material at the back. Maybe it is a better fit for taller women.

I wore this for a work event and got so many compliments!
I rented this dress for a Gala that I helped coordinate. The theme was "Blue Grotto" and this dress perfect! Great length and I loved the back! I did have to tape the shoulders with fashion tape because they kept sliding off but his dress made me feel like a million bucks! Not to mention, I bragged about the service RTR provides to all my friends and co-workers!
