Sexy back!
The photos of this dress don't do it justice. I've rented many times, and this was one of my favorite styles to date. I recommend it for size B bust or smaller since the skinny straps are your support. It's sexy, classic and the back is to die for. At first I didn't think it was dressy enough for a Saturday night wedding, but paired with the DVF clutch and Dannijo earrings, hair and makeup, I truly felt beautiful and at my best. My husband loved it!

Amazing black dress with a beautiful back. The dress received TONS of compliments.
I am pretty much always a size 6. The size 6 fit perfectly. DEfinitely not for large busted women. I am an A cup and it fit snuggly.

Fit Like A Glove!
OK!!- so I am a 32A on a good day, small waisted with hips and thighs. This dress looked like it was made for me. Guys stopped me on the street to say, "nice dress." My date could not stop complimenting me. I felt so incredibly beautiful in it. Once I was laced up, it did not move. Never felt so glamorous!! Loved it! Just a note of warning: If you are larger than a 32/34B you should be prepared for a lot of cleavage. Which when combined with the sexy back of this dress, may or may not be the look you're going for. ;)

Never felt more beautiful!
I absolutely LOVED this dress, understated, sexy, and so so beautiful. My boyfriend couldn't stop telling me how amazing I looked. Laces in the back make it so you can go braless (I'm a C cup), but beware of dancing if you are bigger busted as there is not a TON of support.

I tried this on as a part of the RTR Try On Program
This dress is really pretty and fits true to size. The length could be a little hard for some people to pull off. The ability to adjust this was great, since you can't wear a bra - it still REALLY lifted the girls.

This dress was perfect. Simple, elegant and sexy.
This Tibi dress fit like a glove. I'm almost always a size 6, and the 6 fit perfectly. I was a little worried about a possible nip-slip on the dance floor, so I definitely recommend purchasing the hollywood tape. Don't bother renting this dress if you are larger than an A-Cup. I also recommend for a taller girl. I think the length would have been off if I was any shorter.

Super Sexy and very comfortable
I would rent this again and again. I felt so beautiful in this dress. Because of the cinch up back you can really tailor the fit. Probably best for a small or medium bust?

Just breathtaking!
I ordered this dress 2xs now. And finally found it online to purchase it. I can't say enough about this dress! It's so casually sexy! Like, "oh, me, sexy? Really? I'm so not even trying!" I wore it to a glam dinner and a nightclub afterwards. Also, wore it with flats to a lunch with friends. Sooo ...Amazing. You won't regret it.

So flattering and sexy yet classic. I wore it to a wedding and was able to dance all night long and still feel comfortable. Received TONS of compliments and felt amazing in it. A little long for petite girls like me but the dress was flowy and moved just enough to still flatter!

Pretty, simple but sexy little black dress.
It's "corset" style (although there is no ribbing)...perhaps I wanted a little too much cleavage in the front so I wore it tight. The skinny (but sturdy!) strings left marks on my shoulders. I'm 5-2 and wore very high heels and the dress still hit just above my knees, which was good because the back is sexy enough. The fabric was also VERY staticy and kept clinging to my legs.

Confusing to put on, lots of cleavage.
You'll definitely need some assisting figuring this dress out. The straps in the back cross and you'll need a hand to make sure you're putting it on correctly, unless you're dexterous (I am not!). Once you finally get this bad boy on, it's pretty cute and simple. However, I didn't feel comfortable wearing it into a church. It's pretty low cut and even with a small bust, I felt like I was spilling out., and I knew if I was drinking I'd most likely have a wardrobe malfunction (you cannot wear a bra with this). I decided not to wear this out. Cute for a fancy dinner or birthday party, but too revealing for my taste.

Love the back of the dress.
Loved the back of the dress, but it is not flattering on a small chest (made me look flatter on top than I am, but there isn't room for a bra).

Never received so many compliments!
Once I figured out how to get this dress on, I absolutely loved it! I will say I needed some help from my husband to lace me up--it reminds me of a corset, and I imagine it would be difficult to get on without help. Also, definitely double knot it! The ties are rather slippery. I realized as the night went on that my dress was becoming looser because my bow had come undone--oops! But once I relaced it and double knotted it, the dress stayed put through the night. The material is much thinner and lighter than I was expecting, making it perfect for a warm beach wedding. Obviously can't wear a bra with this, so if you're on the busty side, not sure how it would look. I really wish I owned this dress! Sexy and classy at the same time!

Wanted to keep it forever!
This dress is amazing. I got so many compliments all night and did not want to send it back! The midi length paired with the corset back and the low cut front is sexy but not over the top. I really recommend this dress for anyone of any size - it is so so flattering! Also a good tip: if you are worried about sizing, order the size up. If it is a little big you can synch up the back to make it tighter :)

LOVED the back, but definitely did not work for me... would not suggest to anyone over a B cup!
Well, the dress I originally ordered was not available last minute. Customer service was great, they sent me a few dresses, but none of them worked out. Two hours before we had to leave for the wedding, I received this as my last option! I REALLY wanted it to work out- I'm a 32 D cup and from the reviews, it seemed that I might be able to adjust the top to work for a larger bust. At first, I thought it would be okay... about an hour later, on our way there, I realized it might not work. Let's just say it didn't look very classy after sitting and moving around after an hour. There were photos that were way worse, but I couldn't put them up. Customer service was accommodating, but I wish I had just received my original order. I had to change half way through the wedding to an old winter dress I had in my car!

Super sexy back! Not for busty ladies!
My husband posted this photo of the back of the dress because he thought it looked so good. I felt beautiful wearing it. Not a very high quality dress, but I loved the cut. Very low in the front and I struggled to keep the "girls" covered through dinner and I am not very big busted (plus I nursed 4 babies and I'm 43)!. I started to wear a backless bra, but you could see the top peeking out of the cups on the front of the dress so I had to go commando..

one smokin' lbd!
this dress had some highs and lows. first off, it was very difficult to put on alone...the strings needed to be readjusted in order to zip it up and then it takes a good deal of time finding the right tautness to keep the dress up without squeezing too tight on your back. now, once it is on, yes it looks super sexy, the cut is flattering and the length was perfect for my height, hitting just below the knee. my biggest issue was the sizing actually...the 6 fit well except there didn't seem to be a long enough string for me to fit it properly, i have a feeling the ends were cut off by another wearer or a dry cleaner because they were so short that i couldn't even tie them off at the bottom. definitely unlike the long, drapey, loose bow in the photo of the model. the size 4 had a much longer string which made the top more comfortable and it actually fit better, but the bodice was too short on my long frame and looked a little weird, hence why i went with the 6. overall i felt really sexy but i was nervous about the strings popping out of the loops and my whole dress falling to the floor all night. also, because i couldn't do much adjustment to the bodice due to the short strings, once i finished up at the cocktail hour it fit quite snug and was less than comfortable while sitting. i would recommend this to girls with no boobs, cause a bra has no place in this dress.

Do not rent this dress if your breasts are larger than an A cup! I am a C and I was spilling out.
I am 5' 8", 145 lbs and I have a very narrow rib cage and shoulders. I wear a C cup and my breasts popped out of this dress as soon as I moved even a little. Luckily, I had a back-up dress that was perfect. Also, the fabric is fairly thin and unlined, so it feels a little on the flimsy side. It would be great on someone with very small breasts at a dressy but informal event.

Great dress overall!
Fun dress, the laces took some work to figure out and make sure they were tight enough. I did feel like I was on the edge of a wardrobe malfunction for most of the night, but I'd wear it again for all the pros. Fit great through the waste and hips.

Great dress -- lots of cleavage, not for the modest.
I usually wear a 0 or a 2 in Tibi, but based on the reviews I got the size 4 hoping there would be more room in the chest area. Because the dress ties up in the back, the 4 worked great b/c I was able to cinch it very tight. Very very flattering dress for those who love their waist!! The top is very revealing, I am a full C and this dress was borderline for me. I almost did not wear it due to the amount of cleavage I had, but I wound up wearing it and getting so many compliments. Its not vulgar, but definitely not if you are meeting your boyfriends family for the first time. Overall, great dress!!

Classis dress, perfect for wedding
This dress is the perfect black dress. Would recommend for girls with smaller boobs as you can't wear a bra. Suggest having a friend/boyfriend help you get in to the dress as it takes a little bit of maneuvering to get the back just right. Once everything is in place, it's an extremely comfortable and sexy dress.

Classy & Sexy!
I wore this to an all black party. This dress fit like a glove. I loved how it cinched my waist in and the corset like back is uber sexy. As noted previously, the neckline is deep but nothing wrong with showing off a little cleavage, once in a while. I paired with a statement necklace, red lips and white pumps. You can easily get away with little to no accessories and still look fab! I wish I could keep it.

The perfect combination of sexy and classy!
The dress was much smaller than expected. The bodice was pretty tight and was difficult to zip. The top is very low cut and is difficult to wear with a bra. Otherwise, it was wonderful! The fabric is soft and comfortable, and the laces in the back added a sexy edge to the dress.

Not enough boobs to fill it
Sadly, neither the 6 or 4 fit me. The waist was fine, but my 34B chest was not enough to make it look at all reasonable. And the length was all wrong for a short legged pear shape. I'd read in reviews and saw in pics that this would work for my petite pear frame, but unfortunately, it was all wrong for me.

Good balance of sexy & conservative!
It looked great except the front was SO low that I had to put a ton of double sided boob-tape to keep my nipple from flying out. Not so good when you're going to a dance party. Tricky, I had to be looking at it the whole time.

Sexy and classy
I wasn't sure about the attire at this wedding, and I didn't want to be overdressed if it wasn't black tie. This dress was perfect, it toted the line between black tie and cocktail and it is gorgeous in person. I am petite and small busted (between 32B and 34B), and I felt like I needed just a little something to fill out the dress. I wore Take Outs (silicone cups) with it and they stayed put all night and made me feel more confident. I would definitely rent this again.

I ended up having to wear an old dress of mine, so I remember not loving my outfit.
This dress is really pretty! It's very light and simple, which makes it nice for warmer weather. Unfortunately, I couldn't wear it because it was a little too small in the bust. My breasts barely stayed in when I bent down to slip on my high heels. I also didn't buy that tape, which may have helped keep the girls in? Either way, beautiful dress, but it would be a little too revealing for a wedding if you're over a B cup.

Got engaged in this dress, one of my favs
I have a size 36C chest and it absolutely would not fit in the 6R. The 8R fit better but I still needed fashion tape to keep them in, so thats why I only gave 4 stars. But besides that the back is amazing and was very flattering. The back laces up and you can make it as tight or as loose as you want. I would highly recommend for girls with an A cup.

Simple LBD but the back is beautiful!
I'll reiterate what everyone said about the bust of the dress. It was also difficult to coordinate the straps - I could not have tied myself into this dress. But it was incredibly comfortable, I had no issues with the top (I'm a 34B). I wish I could have kept this in my closet.

Sexy dress!
This dress is really pretty but shows a lot of skin! I am pretty small on top but still felt like I was gonna fall out. The back is beautiful and you can cinch it as tight as you need it. Overall, I am glad I rented it for a night out in Vegas but it wasn't the most comfortable dress in the world.

Felt gorgeous!
It was awesome, but definitely runs small. I am usually a 4/6 on top (I am a total pear shape) and I ended up using my back-up size 6, and probably could have used an 8. Super sexy without being gratuitous, you cannot wear a bra with this! I am a 32C/D and I was on the outer-edge of being able to fit without falling out.

Love the cut in the front, very flattering for a small chest. Had to retie the back a few times throughout the night as it came loose after dancing.
