Great LBD

Dress is TTS. Very comfortable to wear. Got lots of compliments from everyone. Top is a little on the sheer side. Great LBD for any occasion.

So light and airy!

Such a lovely dress. I used some fashion tape on the shoulders to keep it up. Any bra will show and no bra will show quite a bit of side boob. It is a long dress on so I would recommend 5'7"+ with shoes.

Different LBD

Wore this for a friends cocktail attire wedding. Dress runs large so if you have a smaller waste/chest, I would size down. Couldn't wear a bra with it but stickies might work. Would rent again in a smaller size!

a gorgeous lbd

This dress was so fun to wear! The sheer cut outs brought out just enough sass to elevate the simple lbd. I wore a lacy bandeau over my strapless bra to add a little extra coverage, but it was visible in the back- I was just hoping to make it look like part of the dress. The skirt portion moves so easily. Worn with black leather mules and a black leather jacket!

Wore with boots at a ranch wedding!

Waist fit a little funny due to the placement of the seams, but still cute. The top was a little big for me, and I struggled with a bra decision. I used sticky cups and double sided tape to keep things in place. Worked ok, but I'm sure better options exist.

Perfect dress

I loved this dress! The fit was a little big but I am in between sizes. I had to use some tape to keep things in place. But the lace is placed in all the right places. The dress slightly long for my 5'1" frame but made it work with some nude heels with a little lower than midi length. I received so many complements. It was also super comfortable. I would rent again for sure.

Disappointing

I waited for this one to be available In my size for a while, and was disappointed when it arrived damaged with (two small holes in the front). The dress clearly had been steamed a few too many times, as it looked grayish and worn. Still giving it four stars because the design ins incredible, but RTR should retire my specific dress. Like other reviews, this dress ran large, I got a two and am typically a four, could have worn a zero.

A classy way to do sexy, but lookout for holes in the lace!

The dress is beautiful. The mesh/lace is unique and sexy without being too revealing. The cut is flattering and showed off my hourglass figure. It wasn't too fitted on my torso and had plenty of room to move around. I ordered a 4 and a 6, and wore the 6. The 4 fit my chest but was too tight on my hips. It was a bit longer on me (5'5") than the model. With the help of a nude sticky bra and fashion tape, it stayed put through all the evening's festivities. I cannot give the dress a 5, however. The 6 had a HUGE hole in the mesh on side of my chest aka not something I could wear or ignore. RTR overnighted me a second size 6, which arrived on time, but with even more holes that the first. While they were more numerous, they weren't as dire as the first dress'. With no other option for this formal wedding, I chose to wear it. I'm still shocked that either dress is in circulation. While I appreciate the customer service RTR provided through it all, I'm incredibly disappointed in their total lack of quality control. I can't say I feel comfortable trusting them again with a big event.

Really awkward fit

Top was very cool but the waist seemed to snitch awkwardly down to mid thigh. Might have been better a size smaller and I'm normally a size 4

Cool dress, but be prepared with tape!

This was a really cool dress but I ultimately opted not to wear it. I didn't feel like taping myself into it, and there's a bit more side boob showing than I expected. It's really cool though and for the right function would look awesome! You definitely need tape and a tiny stick on bra. No support in the dress.

Really fun dress but runs very large

I wore this out to dinner on our honeymoon. It's a beautiful dress but very large especially on top. I sized down and had to be careful to keep good posture all night for fear of a shoulder slipping off. Really fun dress though

Gorgeous summer black dress

I just loved this dress!! It's hard to see the sheer, black Swiss dot panels this dress has in the photos. Keeps you cool. I wore this twice before sending back. The first to a wedding. I did not wear a bra and just used to tape to ensure no nip slip and it looked fine. The sheer panels on the side of your ribs were so cute. I would not recommend wearing a bra as you will see it completely. The second time I wore it was to an outdoor concert and I wore a black lace bralet which looked great and worked well for the sheer parts of the dress. I steamed the dress before I wore it to the wedding but didn't need to for the outdoor concert. Would def rent again

It didn't work.

It was way too big. The dress hung too low in the front and the front part gapped open. Maybe it would work better on a taller, bustier person. The dress itself is very pretty.

Revealing yet family friendly????

Just a beautiful dress. The fabric, the lace, the drape, the neckline. I was concerned that my bf's conservative family would think I'm a hussy but I received endless compliments all night. Wear your hair up to show off the back! I went with nipple petals and fashion tape to prevent any Janet Jackson moments. A true old Hollywood type of look.

N/A

I really liked the mesh sections of this dress which is why I chose it. The fit was good. However, the length was below the knee, which made it more formal than I wanted.

A pretty LBD with potential fit issues

I wore this dress to an anniversary dinner. The low back V with the mesh detail is very pretty. The dress fit at my waist but was a little large through the bust, so my shoulders were back all evening. Do not recommend if you need chest support. If your tummy is a problem area this may not be the most flattering fit.

Really pretty but get out the double stick tape!

I wore this to a formal holiday party and while it was beautiful and I got lots of compliments, there was a ton of side boob going on, even though I taped myself into it pretty intensely.

Thin fabric, top was too loose, more lace than expected on skirt

This dress must run large - the top, which is cut quite low and is made of fairly thin fabric - did not fit me tightly enough to keep 'the girs' well-contained. Also, I didn't realize there were lace panels in the skirt - I thought the lace was only on the top - it is a very pretty and feminine dress, but too much lace for me personally. I ended up wearing my back-up dress to my event. For others, I would recommend sizing down and only renting this if you are small-chested.

Needs tape, smaller chested women, size down

Would not wear a bra but sexy. However, I wear a 34B and the top seemed to large for me. The bottom flows nicely. Feels like it could roll off my shoulder. Will try again in a 2.

Really beautiful and unique dress that I needed to be a size smaller.

Beauitful material, really unique and fun cut, truly a statement dress .... sadly too big for me in the chest and in the waist. It wouldn't have stayed modest, even with double sided tape. I am disappointed because the dress is lovely otherwise.

So so so comfortable without compromising sexy!

No cons! I'm small chested and pulled it off with some sticky boobs and a bit of tape. It was endlessly comfortable and perfect if you want a dress you can actually eat, drink, and dance in. I'd 100% recommend it!

Sexy and Classy at the same time

This dress I wore for a birthday. It was absolutely stunning the dress on a hanger does nothing this dress is gorgeous light material sexy and classy. You can't wear a bra that is ok. Also you have to make sure you don't let the sleeves slide down or else you will be naked other than that amazing!

Stylist Review

Love this style Gals! This is such a fun take on a little black dress. Straight out the gate, I'll say that if you are larger chested (above a C), I would stay away from this number due to the super plunging neckline and low back. There is no support up top in this one. Other than that, this fit and flare shape works well for just about any other body type (excluding baby bump). The fabric has no stretch, but the overall fit is very true to size. I would recommend sizing up for your backup. The length hit be right below the knee, and I am 5'6". Pair with some gorgeous earrings and classic pumps for a polished look.

Comfortable, Fun LBD

This was a back-up dress that I ordered and I am SO glad that I did. My intended was a total non-starter, so I was hugely relieved that this one worked out. Since I hadn't really planned to wear it, I hadn't brought along a stick-on bra (note the deep-deep V in the back...), but fortunately my black strapless bra worked out fine (everyone I asked promised it wasn't noticeable). I was secure enough to dance at the wedding. Not my favorite dress I've ever rented, but comfortable and worked out well!

This dress is perfection!

This dress is beautiful. The fabric is soft and flowing and the mesh details are sexy but subtle. Definitely not a dress you can wear with a bra, so its good to be aware of that. I would buy this dress in an instant!

Beautiful dress--got so many compliments. Classic yet sexy with the sheer sides. Flattering fit.

Definitely need fashion tape (I didn't have any!)--you can't wear a bra or sticky boobs because of the sheer sides.

Chic, Sexy & Elegant!

The perfect black dress for any occasion - can be dressed up or down! You will definitely need a strapless, backless bra - I am a 34D - and definitely needed support. I received so many compliments - it's super feminine, elegant and fun! I would rent this again!

It looked beautiful, but I didn't wear it because of the tears in it.

Hey this dress had a lot of rips and tears in it when I opened it in the very fragile netting of the dress.

Loved wearing this dress to a charity gala. It was perfect- not too formal and easily dressed down.

Needed to wear a black bra with this dress- had major side boob without it. The cut is flattering and the lace details are interesting. The cut in the back didn't really show my bra strap- so I think it's fine to wear a bra with this dress. Also, the shoulders have those little snaps to keep you bra straps hidden. It was a little on the long side on me (I'm 5'4") but still tea length. The only problem is that both dresses came with tiny tears in the black lace: not terribly noticeable unless looking closely.

Beautiful dress but sadly I couldnt wear!

The dress was stunning and pretty true to size but it was way to tight in the ribcage area. I have a long torso and my natural waist and where the waist falls on most dresses does not often add up. I think i would have been OK if a 12 was available for a size up. I was heartbroken not being able to wear this. The material is light and flowy and the neckline is gorgeous. A very understated kind of sexy. I would definitely try to rent again in a larger size.
