Navy Wedding
I wore this to a friend's wedding and had a great night. It's a beautiful dress, classic color, and I received lots of compliments. But... I did worry about exposure on the dance floor. The waist is high and small and the bust area a little loose. Nothing some tape couldn't fix, but you may want to think twice if you plan on having a very active night.

Awesome dress.
I wore this dress to my prom and absolutely LOVED it! People are not exaggerating when they say it has a small waist, though. I ended up wearing an 8 just so it would fit on my waist and I often wear a 4 in dresses.

Very flattering, different, and fun to wear!
This dress looked even better on than I hoped. I got tons of compliments; it was very slimming and I loved the dark navy color. My only complaint is the waist is VERY, verrry tight and unforgiving, it felt like a corset. The top is also pretty loose if you don't have much to fill it out. I had many almost nip slips (definitely wished I used dress tape). It was wearable though, just not too comfy, definitely order up a size and buy dress tape. Overall I was really happy with it.

The back of the dress made some jaws drop.
I rented this dress for my school's winter formal. The fit of the dress was wonderful. The length was just right. The only problem I had with the dress was that since I am small chested, I had to use a lot of fashion tape to hold the front and sides of the dress up.

HOT DRESS! GOT A MILLION COMPLIMENTS!!!!
I never got so many compliments! The dress fit perfect! I wear a size 6 and I ordered a 6 and and 8 b/c I read that the waist/bust runs tight on the rib cage. It is true that it has no give, but I'm a 34 B so it fit fine! The material was lightweight and comfortable. I did wear a "braza" which I ordered from this site and had to put double sided tape which I ordered from here too. The dress came with a little pull on the zipper, so I called customer service in the evening and they overnighted me another one which I got in the morning! So quick! The dress was truly a hit! So simple, classy with a sexy back!

Another RTR HIT!!!
This was a beautiful dress. Rich, dark blue color and lovely movement. I will echo what other reviewers have said about the waistband - it is a tight fit. I had to have help with the zipper but once it was up it didn't feel uncomfortable. The adjustable straps around the back also made it possible for me to not need any fashion tape. The dress stayed where it was supposed to through dancing, toasting and lots of hugging! The length on my short frame was just right - it hit above my knee. Overall, I couldn't have been happier. I would highly recommend this dress.

Didn't wear it, but beautiful dress!
I rented two dresses to choose from for a wedding a few weeks ago; I'm glad I got another dress! This dress is really pretty, but it doesn't fit well, unfortunately. I think it is for taller girls ;) Wish it would have fit! LOVED my other dress though!

Very tight at the waistband, also the waistband is very high. Unforgiving fabric.

Pretty Dress, Sizing is Hard
I rented 3 dresses because it was my first time so I was unsure about how it would all work/fit. I rented this dress but ended up not picking it. It is a beautiful dress! The fit, on me was tricky though. The waist bad has zero give and hit me a little above my natural waist. I usually wear a size 4/6 in dresses but i had to move up to an 8 for this dress. I ran into trouble with the fit on my chest. I am 34C and it was loose. You cant wear a normal bra so I would have to wear the stick on bra and use fashion tape as well. However, the length is great as well as the fabric. Nice and light. If it fit better it would have been my first choice!

The back saves the dress
I dont' think this dress photographs very well and I was a bit underwhelmed by it, but it was my only choice, so I made it work. The front of the dress is... meh. It does have pockets, which are pretty fun. The back of this dress saves it. The open back is flattering and makes this a much more interesting choice. A statement necklace is a must. As mentioned, the dress is quite unforgiving around the ribcage. The 2 was unavailable so I took a risk and ordered the 0, which I ended up wearing. It certainly did not leave much room for deep breaths and I have a small rib cage. If you have a wide ribcage, definitely order up a size.

Gorgeous Color, Great Fit
The dress was a gorgeous navy blue color, and a comfortable light material. I'm always a '2', and this dress fit everywhere except in the chest. I ended up having to go without a bra and lots and lots of fashion tape to make sure it stayed up! But I got so many compliments on the dress, especially the back! Would definitely recommend.

This dress is beautiful! The color was perfect for Kappa's Sapphire Ball.
I love the color of this dress, but it did not fit as well as I expected. I'm 5'9 and have a long torso, and the cut did not work for me. This dress would probably fit better on someone a little shorter. It fit awkwardly in the waist, hitting above my natural waistline. The strapless half didn't stay up very well, and I spent the whole night struggling to keep my strapless bra from showing.

pretty, but not very well fitting
I hace a smaller cup size than most, so the side of the dress without the strap needed to be taped down to my chest. It was a little short, and not very flattering

Great experience!
I rented this dress to wear on my birthday. It was very nice, except they didn't send double sided tape, and my bra kept showing. Other than that, it was a great experience and I will definitely rent again! It was very comfortable, but fit a lot longer on me than the model!

Beautiful dress!
This dress is amazing! Some of the reviews said the waistline fits small, but I thought it fit right up to par, and I ended up choosing the smaller size because it meant I didn't need double stick tape. The material is beautiful, the fit is fantastic, and the back is stunning. Couldn't recommend it more! So sad to see it go!

Not a very forgiving dress.
I ended up not wearing this dress although it was very cute, the waist line around to the open back has no give whats so ever so every time you moved in it, everyone else could tell too. It just squeezed too much on that back line that I didnt feel comfortable enough to wear it all night.

Great Dress, Love the Back!!
I got a ton of complements on this dress, nobody could believe it was actually rented! I usually wear a size 0 and although I ended up wearing the 0 in this dress it really was a toss-up between the 0 & the 2. i chose to go with the 0 in spite of the almost too-tight waist because the 2 was just too big on the top. I also used fashion tape to stick the left side of the dress to my chest to make sure the dress stayed in place & it worked perfectly. Overall, great dress that I'd definitely recommend to a friend.

Great dress for a summer wedding.
I loved this dress. The fit was a little snug around my waste, but my rib cage is a little wide for my size, so that may have been what caused the tightness. Otherwise, a great fit for someone who is smaller.

The dress would have been perfect except-both dresses were clearly worn a lot. I called right a way,they were very sweet -returned them all for a credit. I didnt get to wear any. I am tryingRTR again. I felt there customer service was awesome.

Ringing in the New Year with style!
I wore this for a New Year's eve party I hosted. I received so many compliments. I agree with the other review on that the dress has no give (good thing I ordered a size up!). The back is sexy but you have to be careful with the sides. I had to use some fashion tape to prevent any mishaps during the night. Overall I loved the look of the dress.

Looks better on the model.
This dress was my original pick for New Years. However my first order from RTR got caught up in the snow storm so it did not get delivered on time. RTR send me a back up dress and my original dress in a size 4 which was too small around the bust. In real person the dress looks more for a summer party rather than a New Year Event. The fabric is very light and the back is amazing , it was just to small. If you are bigger up top I would recommend going up a size. Other than that it was a great dress !

Beautiful color and material!
Unfortunately, I couldn't wear this dress for the reason I rented it, but I'm reviewing it for the benefit of others. The dress fit perfectly, except that the top was too big, and the back was too low to wear a bra. I don't have a tiny chest, but the top was too big and left gaps on either side so if I moved too much I would pop out. If I had the time to pin it, it would have been fine. However, this dress is really beautiful and could be worn for a lot of different events. It is a gorgeous deep blue color and even at 5' 2" it was about 3" above the knee. It is both chic and fashionable and was a real bummer that I couldn't wear it.

Lovely dress, but didn't end up wearing it
This dress was beautiful, but I am rather large chested for my body and did not feel secure in this dress wearing a sticky bra. I didn't wear it for fear of wardrobe malfunction, but it would probably work well for smaller chested ladies.

Silky and sexy!
I wore this dress on a trip to Vegas. Warning: the waist band is REALLY tight. I'm usually a 2 or a 4 and the 4 was really snug. That said, it looked sexy and amazing. It required a little bit of dress tape in the front, but that was no biggie. Loved the color and the fabric. i was sad to see it go.

Unfortunately, neither of the sizes I ordered in this dress looked great on me. The dress itself was beautiful but just didn't flatter my shape. I contacted RTR immediately and had a credit to spend in the future!

Such an amazing dress, so flattering!
I would recommend this dress to anyone a thousand times over. My friend actually convinced me to rent this as a 2nd option for a wedding we were going to. I was skeptical and didnt think it was my style especially since the friend who recommended it has totally different taste then me. I loved this dress right when I put it on. It is so flattering. The back is beautiful, the length is perfect and appropriate (I'm 5'8, it was mid-thigh) I loved the deep blue color. It was so comfortable to wear to an outdoor south beach wedding. Everything about this dress is perfect. I will probably rent it again for another nice occasion I have to go to.

I loved this dress and got so many compliments! It was a little tight on me wear it cinched it, because it's not right under the bust or at the waist, but other than that, it was great! Loved it
