SO IN LOVE.
I cannot say how much I love this dress. The lace is beautiful, the cut, back, and neckline are sexy as hell, and the color is beautiful. It was a bit long for my short frame (5'4"), but other than that it was completely amazing and the size 6 fit perfectly. I would rent it again even knowing it is a bit long. Got a ton of compliments and felt like a million bucks.

This is a designer gown, so it runs smaller than your regular clothes. Size up!

Beautiful dress...runs small
I absolutely loved this dress! It is so pretty however I really think it runs small. I had a really hard time with the zipper and could barely even zip it all the way. I ended up not being able to wear this. Wish it would have come in one size bigger.

Never been happier to get a replacement!
I had been dreaming of renting this dress, and it came as my replacement! It was darker than I expected (I actually thought it was black when I opened it). I usually wear 0 but it would not fit around m waist- very, very, fitted. I went up to a 2. The skirt was long on me and was like a pencil skirt so it was tight to walk in, but I didn't think taping it up looked right. I also didn't need to wear a bra!

Pictures do not do this dress justice
I was scared this dress wouldn't leave room for the filet mignon I order for dinner but it was loose enough for me to fit into and feast on the gourmet mac and cheese bar during the cocktail hour AND finish my dinner! (I love food). Yet tight enough where I looked like a boss while doing so. Hugged my curves without exposing every little bump. The classy but deep v bust wasn't too tight but it held my boobs together so no need for a bra or fear of nip slips. The only tight part was the shoulders for some reason; and walking up stairs was a little tricky but not the worst. And you may need help zipping it up or down. Overall I feel like a million bucks in this dress. I wished I could keep it. Would rent it again in a different color maybe to change it up.

Felt sexy and classy at the same time!
This dress was truly awesome! The fit was comfortable and the material was just thick enough for a late summer evening at an outdoor wedding. The chest fit well and had no gaping holes. I would 100% rent this again. I loved every moment wearing it.

Classy & Sexy- You HAVE to rent this dress!
Let me tell you, I've been eyeing this dress to rent for what seems like ever. I finally had the perfect place to wear it to, so I rented it. I'm typically a 6 or an 8, but I rented a size 8 and 10 because I've rented before and it seems like the designer dresses run a bit small. The 8 zipped but was extremely uncomfortable, so I opted for the 10. My only complaint is that around the waist where the material changes and is thicker, the zipper kept getting stuck. Thank goodness for the hotel room bar of soap that helped the zipper glide easier. I bought sticky boobs from Target last minute because I was afraid of a nip slip- but really that was just me being paranoid. The dress was comfortable all night- I was able to dance and sit without being the least but uncomfortable. I will definitely be renting this beauty again!! LOVED it so much! Worst of all- I don't even have a photo from the entire day!

Great dress!
I rented the 4 and the 6 and could have worn either, but the 6 was more revealing in the chest so I felt better in the 4. I have a fairly narrow rib cage so I didn't have any issues with the fit there, but I was a bit self conscious with the deep V. My girls aren't very perky so I wore a strapless, backless U plunge bra and that helped. Overall I felt classy yet sexy in this dress!

If your chest is on the larger side, the dress will look sexier than on the model - but in general, a beautiful and elegant dress. I very much recommend it!

A gorgeous and elegant dress perfect for any special occasion! Sad to send it back!
This dress ran true to size and was so beautiful in person. It is not too revealing, and actually very tasteful. The lace on top is very elegant and only earrings and bracelet are required to complete the look! The back is also very pretty -- wear your hair up or to the side to show it off!

Gorgeous dress but the satin sash made it too tight to wear, even a size up.
The 6 fit like a glove (I'm 5'2" / 130), EXCEPT for the satin band which was way too tight on both the 6 and 8...so tight that I couldn't wear either and breathe comfortably and had to go with my 3rd backup. I usually wear a 4-8 size dress and a 34 bra band, so don't think I have an abnormally large rib cage. No issue with the stomach, chest or fit otherwise. Bummer for me because the dress was so pretty.

Sexy dress with an elegant twist!
I rented this dress for my sister who is a size 0. It for her like a glove; however, the cut from the front is fairly low and therefore cannot be worn with a bra. I highly recommend the dress!

Beautiful Dress/No stretch
I rented a 0 and a 2. I think the dress is true to size. Should of went with the 2 and anticipated the no stretch after dinner. The 0 also wasn't comfortable to dance in and the top lace part was itchy. It was beautiful and just enough sexy . It's also pretty light material as I attended an outdoor wedding and felt comfortable.

Beautiful dress. Unfortunately too small to wear for the event.
The dress fit well in all areas except the waist. The dress has some give, but the ribbon which goes around the waste does not. My rib cage was too big for the size I ordered.

Lots of compliments, flattering for a fuller figure.
Really tight. I wear an 8 jean and 8/10 dress...the 12 was pretty tight but spanks helped a lot. No need for a bra or nubra or anything if you have a fuller top, it holds everything in place. ;) Very Dark blue, almost black...a neutral shoe looks best. I wore stewpot heels that were gold-ish. Hem was just at the knee, great length. The lace is beautiful and flattering...not sure I would recommend as much for a slimmer figure or someone with a smaller top. I'm 5'6, 153 pounds, curvy figure, 36D. I got a lot of compliments and

Beautiful and unique dress - perfect for wedding
I loved this dress and received so many compliments at the wedding I wore it to. The material is very comfortable and the cut of the dress is incredibly flattering. The sheer panel is not super noticeable in person that it would seem inappropriate but noticeable enough to give the dress a sexy edge. I typically go between 2-4 depending on the cut- looser with a 2 and form fitting a 4. I wore a 4 here.

lots of compliments on the dress. I felt classy but sexy.
I had a baby a year ago and I guess my rib cage hasn't quite come back to its pre-baby shape. The band around the midsection does not stretch at all and was really tight. the rest of the dress fit like a dream (I didn't wear a bra because it had great support built in) but I would have maybe been more comfortable in an 8.

Not for petite women..
I ordered this dress to wear to a wedding after eyeing it for months. I am 5'3", 118 lbs, and consistently between a size 0 or 2, depending on the dress. Other reviewers commented that this dress ran small, so I opted for the size 2, which fit perfectly. Fit aside, I wasn't impressed with this dress in person. Somehow, even with the sheer paneling, the dress looked matronly on me. In the smaller sizes, the lace on the chest overlaps more than on the model, so the "V" wasn't as deep. Also, it almost came to mid calf which cut me in an unflattering place. Lastly, beware the color is basically black, not the eggplant color it appears on the model. Quality was very high, and would probably be beautiful on taller women. As always, the customer service reps were very helpful in getting another dress out to me in time for my event.

Getting glances and looks all night long!!
I was afraid this would be too long on me and it was! I am 5 ft and have a short torso. The size 4 was perfect but as others have mentioned it was snug around my ribcage. I wore this to a wedding and I felt so overdressed compared to the other ladies since the wedding was "small" and more of laid back feel. That's ok because I'm pretty sure I turned heads! My boyfriend loved it and felt so proud to have me by his side. I did a temporary hem to bring the dress up (4 inches) in order for it to look somewhat of a dresz and not a gown! I felt so fabulous and felt I could paint the whole town red. I definitely didn't want to end the night!!

Gorgeous dress that is both classic and sexy
I have rented a version of this dress 3 times and I saw it on Unlimited and rented just so I could buy it. It does run very small in the top and the zipper is darn near impossible to pull up and if you have a D cup or greater, it kind of pushes you flat-- but even with those cons, the dress is stunning. I get compliments every single time I wear it, from both men and women. It shows cleavage, so is sexy, but is conservative in every other way, so it's fine for evening professional events

Sexy, Comfortable and super chic! One of my favorite rentals thus far from RTR! Would rent again!
Fits true to size.I ended up renting the 4 & 6. I could have worn the 4 for the top to be more fitted however, it was a hot day and wanted to have more room so I choose to wear the 6 instead. No bra needed!! Knee length, perfect amount of leg!

Gorgeous but didn't fit
Gorgeous but no go. I wear a 12/14 and tried this 12 to no avail. Where the two pieces of material meet, there is no give at all so I could have zipped 95% of it that ribbon piece wouldn't work. Total bummer because this dress was so glam.

Customer service is excellent
Gorgeous dress. Very very comfortable, only drawback is the zipper. Very difficult to get up where the band is as everyone else has said; however customer service was fantastic and stayed with me for 30 min on the phone to find a suitable backup dress that was shipped overnight to the hotel I was staying at in event the dress gave us issues the day of the wedding.
