The PERFECT "Birthday Girl Dress" for a Night on the Town!
I wore it for my birthday for a dinner and night out with my girl friends. The dress was well-made, a beautiful color and very flattering. I'm tall with curves in the bottom region {hips and booty} and the dress really accented my smaller waistline and back. It was girly with a hint of sexy. It was also not too short which was a concern when I rented it!

Great color.
Ran quite small (even the bigger size felt tight) and not the most comfortable, but looked great in photos.

I loved the color! This dress was perfect for the vineyard/winery wedding
This dress has pockets!!! I really liked the fit of this dress and the straps were adjustable with buttons. I did you use a little double stick tape too keep the bodice in place...

Little loose up top and make sure you take photos from the right angle otherwise you look slightly naked.

Love the back strap!
Wore this dress for NYE and I loved it! I must warn however, the side opposite the strap needs a little invisible tape to keep the "girls" from peeking out too much! This was all it needed and RTR sent some with the dress actually! I loved the fabric and the way it fit! Would highly recommend!!

You'll get lots of complements with this dress! I loved it!
It fit true to size. Don't bother wearing a bra because the back is too open.

Beautiful dress, but not for busty girls
I was really excited to wear this dress, but I guess I should have put a little more thought into it! The back is gorgeous, with the two straps! You definitely cannot wear a bra with this dress since the back cuts so low. I am pretty darn busty so it doesnt work that well for me, lots of double sided tape needed for both lift and coverage! The color is beautiful and the rest of the dress fit true to size.

So many compliments!!
The dress was lovely. I put it runs small because the waist was pretty tight and unforgiving. It hits just under the bust so the fit is most critical right there. At first I thought the bust was too big because it was really baggy (very unusual problem for me) but after some adjusting it turned out the straps were just too long. The straps are adjustable, but were still too long. Some minor on-the-fly alteration got it fitting perfectly. It was longer than it appears in the model photo, but still 2-3" above the knee. Overall a very fun, very flattering dress.

Great for fall wedding
I wore this dress for a fall wedding. I'm not usually a one-shoulder girl, but I love a great back and this dress definitely has a GREAT back. Probably not great for a larger bust- I went without a bra. It fit great and I loved the length and color.

LOVED the color and style of the dress so much!
The bust was a little big (wore it with no bra). And wasn't 100% fit to my body. Tried to adjust it as best as the dress would allow, but it didn't cause too much concern. I'd still rent this dress again.

It was so comfortable and everyone loved it! I wish I actually owned this to wear all the time!
It did fit a little tight around the ribs, but the size 2 was way too big on the top. I decided to wear the 0 and it ended up being very comfortable even though it was a little tight. I am usually not comfortable wearing a dress with a back as low as it was, but it ended up being fine. It was a perfect dress to wear for my friend's Sweet 16 court. Everyone there told me they loved it.

It was the perfect dress for a date party!
It's really flattering, and the back is the best part. You can't wear a real bra with it though so make sure that isn't an issue before you rent it!

The color is great
The dress was a little tight around the ribs and loose in the boob area. Double sided tape easily fixed that!

I don't get to dress up for events very often, and I felt beautiful and comfortable all night!
The fit is definitely a bit on the large size, especially the top. The strapless side falls very low on your chest. Other than that, the dress was very comfortable and moved well. Great length and color.

Cute party dress
Fun dress for a party, night out, bachelorette, etc. The color is great, not too bright, but a nice change from a typical black. One thing to consider is that the area just below your bra area (upper rib cage) fits a little tight. The next size up was a better fit in that same area, but a little too large everywhere else. You may want to reconsider this option if you have a bigger boobs or you are planning to eat a big dinner in this dress.

Did not wear this dress, it is not burgundy, it is definitely PURPLE.
I did not end up wearing this dress. Firs tof all it says the dress is burgundy, but the dress is most definitley purple not burgundy. The color in the pic is not the same color as the actual dress. Also the dress is a summer dress for sure, not good for any parties in the winter.

The Dress was great! I especially loved the detail in the back!
I was a little bit too short for the back so I had to use safety pins to make the straps smaller instead of using the buttons, but other than that I loved everything about it!

I actually didn't wear this dress.
The color is beautiful but the material is a bit thin and it was hard to wear a bra with it. I'd recommend it for smaller busted women.

I wore this dress to NYE last year and got so many compliments!
I rented a 10 and a 12 because I'm often between the sizes, but the 10 fit perfectly. I needed fashion tape to hold up the back and the side, and it goes too low in the back to wear a bra with it so it may not be good for very busty women. I'm a C and didn't have a problem. I'm 5'1 and the dress went down to just above my knees, which is exactly where I wanted it to be. All in all, a great dress! I'd definitely rent it again.

This dress was nothing less than FABULOUS !
I wore this dress to my college Winter Formal Dance. I loved everything about this dress as did everyone else at the dance! I was so in love with this dress, I ordered in Navy also and wore it to a wedding. It is very true to size ! If you're ordering this dress, get ready for people to talk your ear off with compliments !

Did not work AT ALL... ended up scrambling to find a dress last minute, did not fit!
This dress was extremely, extremely short - not appropriate for my charity event. The fit was really awkward also, guess its just not a good brand for taller people!

I wore this to my sorority's parents cocktail and got so many compliments, it was classy and fun!
I normally wear a size 2, but because of the cut, the 4 was much more comfortable. The color is a rich burgundy and would look great on all skin tones--perfect for the fall!

Everyone loved this dress, especially the back.
This dress is amazing, you must wear it to your next event! Everyone was asking me where I got it! The back goes really low, and the dress fits great. The only issue I had was that I was a little bit between a 2 and a 4 and the 4 was way too big and 2 a little tight, but the 2 ended up working just fine.
