Gorgeous. Fit like a glove. Sexy and sophisticated.
The only downside was that the color is lighter than what is showed. I received so many compliments. I would buy the stress in an instant.

Beautiful, elegant, eye-catching dress
I absolutely loved this dress.... Although there were no long sizes available so the dress was too short for my height, and it affected the look of the backless style of the dress. Because I am so tall, it showed more of my mid-back and upwards. Overall, I was very happy with this dress and felt like a queen in it !

Classy and sexy!!
The dress is so comfortable, the low-back is awesome, and I am 5'1 and the length was perfect! I am usually a size 2 and was unsure if the 4R would fit me, but it fit just fine. I am athletic and petite, and it really showed off my good features. The material is stretchy so it is really easy to fit into. It was a hit and I got so many compliments.

Elegant but sexy! I felt amazing in this dress!
This gown is gorgeous! I got so many complements on this dress and was perfect for my formal event. The open back was my favorite part! The only issue I had was that it was shorter then I expected. I am 5'3" and ordered a 0R. The dress fell to the top of my feet with less then a 3 inch heel. I would recommend the longer length in this dress if you want it to touch the ground, even if you are a petite. Overall my first time experience with RTR was fantastic and I will definitely order again for future events!

Feeling like a princess
I felt so beautiful in this dress. I received compliments all night. The dress was true to size. However my only negative with the dress is that is was short. I am 5'8 and ordered at 4LONG and it was short on me I only wore 2 inch heels and it was completely off the ground as you can see in the photo.

The back of this dress is incredible! Loved it!
Pros: beautiful lace detail and comfortable. Cons: length was a tad short and bottom of gown had slight wear and was uneven with underlay. Overall it was beautiful.

Loved this dress! Great for black tie wedding
Fit was perfect hugged all the right areas. It is a little more purple that it looks on the model and the underwater was longer than the lace part. I got a ton of compliments when I wore this and overall felt great in it! Would definitely rent again

I loved the overall look of this dress.
The dress fits true to size. I normally wear a 6R. I ordered both the 6R and 8R but when the dress arrived only the 8R was available. It had a bit of a stretch to it so it actually clung tighter to my body working out just fine. Overall I would have preferred the smaller size but I still loved it.

I felt really beautiful and comfortable.
I would have never chosen this dress. The stylist was extremely helpful. I have never been so comfortable both with the way my body looked, and with the way the dress felt. The dress was great I am not a picky person the style and fit trumped the fact that the lining was about two inches longer than the lace and the dress looked a bit wash worn in the hem and leather collar. If you have had four kids, never work out, but still want to look and feel great, this dress is a must. I loved it!

Nice, but could be better
The dress was definitely a plum color, not maroon at all. But I had expected that. I am normally between a 2 and. 4 but I could have fit into the 0 in this dress. The biggest con for me was the fact that you can see that the lace has shrunk because a string is connecting the bottom of the slip to the lace. I pinned up the slip with safety pins because there was about 6 inches of excess materials that fell beneath the lace. Overall, loved wearing this dress though

I felt stunning all night!
The original size I wanted to order was a 0L, but I procrastinated and that size was unavailable. I was worried about the fit of the larger size, but it worked extremely well! The dress was very comfortable and stretchy, I felt like I could take normal steps. I was worried that with the low back my underwear would show, but it actually was not a problem at all- even with the little bit of gapping in the back. The lining of the dress does run a little below the lace on the 2L, and you can see it if you look closely at my picture. However, this did not effect the overall look of this dress. I received compliments all night! It is a little bit of a more purple color than it appears, but once again it was still gorgeous! If you're worried about matching colors: my date wore a black tux with a white vest and bow tie. All of my accessories were gold and my shoes were black and they matched wonderfully. I didn't want to return this dress! Also, shout out to RTR: included with my dress was a garment bag I got to keep, some fashion tape, and a complementary lotion. I will rent again!!

The back!!
I am usually a size 4, but since that size wasn't available for my date I got the next one up. I was a little worried because it was a little baggy. It hung just right though, even for being too big. I got compliments on it all night! And it was so comfy!

Didn't use this dress
I ended up sending this dress back because the fit was just wrong in every possible way. Because of the backless nature of it, if you are at all hourglass then the dress is just baggy in the middle because there's no structure around the waist. It was also waaaaaay too short. I'm tall, but even with no shoes on the dress was at my ankles. The top and sleeves were fine.

Beautiful dress- got compliments all night!
First time using RenttheRunway and impressed! Overall the fit was fabulous, though I was disappointed that the lace did not extend to the floor, and the lining peeked out about 3 inches (you can see the dark lining), I am not sure if the long size would have fixed the problem either. On the other hand, this dress is COMFORTABLE, CLASSY yet SEXY with the open back. I wore this for a red carpet, black tie fundraising event and it was perfect for the night.

glamorous, sexy, comfortable!
Wore this dress for a black tie optional wedding, and it made me feel so glamorous. It was sexy and comfortable. The color was rich and gorgeous, and the material was not at all heavy. As other reviewers have noted, the lining does stick out from the bottom. So I rented a long, despite my small stature, so I could pin up the lining, wear with heels and the lace to graze the floor. I did note that the 2L did not have the issue with the lining. I opted to go braless, but would have would felt more comfortable with some type of support (those dresses with the built in bras are great!)

Beautiful color, felt very fancy in the dress!
I would not typically wear a dress like this due to the lack of support, but I was able to buy a backless stick-on bra which was the only way I was able to wear this dress. You could just barely see the sides of the sticky part as they wrapped around, but everyone else said they couldn't see it at all. This dress would be perfect for someone that feels comfortable going braless. The color is very pretty and the fabric is very stretchy and you can move well in it. I had no problem dancing all night with everything staying in place. It was a tad short and the under layer of lining definitely hangs below the outside layer. I went with the 4R as 4L wasn't available and the 6L was definitely too big. Overall a really striking and unusual dress, I got lots of compliments and felt great wearing it!

I loved that I was the only one at this event with this dress on. It was a very unique color.
The dress fit perfectly length wise. The only problem I had was that I'm a bit small up top and it was a little loose fitting but no one noticed but me. This dress is perfect for a tall, thin woman. I have curves and although it fit nice my curves weren't flaunted enough. The back is very sexy and the lace and long sleeves were perfect for this winter event.

It was a beautiful dress!
This dress is amazing. I wish I could have gotten the 2L because it was a little short and came to my ankles almost. A little worn at the bottom too but nothing a little tape couldn't fix. I believe the slip was too long and needed to be folded. It also wasn't as fitted as I would have liked it to be. Other than that this dress made me a show stopper at prom and a jaw dropper when people saw the back. Sexy but classy.

So many comments on this dress!
The dress fit perfectly all over. Not too tight and very comfortable to move and dance around in. The color is a little more purple than expected, but that made it even more lovely! The length was perfect with 3 inch heels and everyone loved the look. My favorite part is definitely the open back.

When it arrived the dress was clean and in good condition.
It was basically a perfect fit, going in I had no idea what my dress size really was but it ended up being the perfect size , I wanted a long fit so that it wouldn't show my ankles and that's why I went with the 6L and not the 6R but it did run a little too long as I had to hold the dress up while on the dance floor to prevent stepping on it, overall a beautiful dress and got lots of complements from the other ladies.

Dress was defective and very short.
Dress arrived with the slip lining hanging out of the bottom, by 6". I shortened the lining (to fix the dress). I am only 5' tall and this dress barely touched the ground in my stocking feet. Definitely not long enough to wear with heels for a formal affair. The color is purple, not wine/bordeaux like in the pic. The fabric is like a cotton/spandex and kind of cheap looking. Might work for someone in their teens, like a prom dress or something.

Loved this dress!
I wore this dress for a black tie event while I was 4 1/2 months pregnant. I loved this dress and so did everyone at the event. I've never received so many compliments in one night! This dress was perfect for me because I didn't want anything that was too tight in the mid section, but I still wanted to look sexy! Before I got pregnant I was a size 6R, so I was probably a size 8 when I wore the dress. It fit perfect. If you are over 5'5" I would suggest ordering a long size. The dress hit right at my ankles, so it worked for me. I wish I could have kept this dress, I loved it so much!

Needed a gown for a masquerade gala, and this was perfect!
The dress fit perfect except that it was a tad bit short. I'm 5'2" and without heels on the dress just touched my toes. I decided to wear 4 inch heels, even thought the dress was short with the heels on, it didn't look terrible, so I went with it, but definitely wish the Long size was avaiable. Other than it being too short, it was a beautiful dress. I got tons of compliments and would defintely recommend this rental to anyone.

Gorgeous Dress!
I almost returned this RTR dress for merchandise credit because the lining of the dress was showing a good four inches longer than the lace fabric. BUT I'm so glad I didn't! I wore it for a low-lit, sit-down wedding at a an old historic building in Downtown LA and felt stunning the entire evening. I received compliments all night long, even though I had to hold up the dress in one hand any time I did any walking or dancing. And there was a ton of dancing! Since the lining was hanging out the dress was a bit long with 4 inch heels at 5'2", but I intentionally ordered the 2L because I didn't want the dress to stop at my ankles and show my feet. I probably could have worn the 2R. However, I think holding up a longer dress with extra long lining was less awkward than a shorter dress with visible lining. Overall, it was very comfortable and fit well, and I could move freely in it, even with the open back. I would recommend this dress for really special occasions. Also, the low lighting helped make the dress because it is beginning to look worn in some parts of the lace. The color is also more purple than the model's picture, but I still enjoyed the color even though I would have liked the maroon color a bit more.

I wore this for a friend's wedding and received lots of compliments!
As other reviewers have said, it runs slightly large but it's not overwhelming. The dress is more purple than the stock picture shows and the 2L has a small hole in the upper back region, but it isn't too noticeable since the dress has that look to it already. The dress had quite a few snags that I had to cut off, but I guess it comes with the territory of a used dress that is shipped all over. Since I'm short the 2L was still too long with 4" heels but I made it work. This was my first time using RTR and it was an 'ok' experience overall.

Perfect for a wedding
I wore this to a black tie optional wedding in October. The dress fits a bit large, however I am 5'5 and the long was necessary. I have a larger chest but was able to get away without any type of bra/tape etc. The dress was very comfortable and I received tons of compliments.

Ended up not wearing the dress.
This dress runs large and is very forgiving/stretchy. I ended up not wearing it for two reasons: there is zero support in the bodice, so unless you like how your chest looks braless in a t-shirt I recommend passing up on this dress as an option. Because of the open back and lace over shoulders, you have to have a special bra or tape. Didn't work for me. I would also add that the dress is casual because of the fabric; it is something you'd expect on a dress for day, not a floor-length gown. So, although the fit was flattering, the fact that that the fabric was nothing special made this dress too 'everyday' for my black tie event, so I shopped a friend's closet instead.

Overall great dress, received many compliments at the gala. Love the backless aspect of the dress.
Wasn't as snug as I thought and the regular length is short of wearing a very high heel. Also more eggplant purple than burgundy.

Beautiful
Very beautiful and elegant. Runs Very large. I ordered a 2 and a 0, and could have worn the 0, but it was a bit tight on my neck so I wore the bigger size. Definitely go one size down for your backup. Beautiful lace detail, and the dress was a lot more light weight than it looked. You'll love it!

Beautiful wedding of a good friend...with great friends to share it all.
I am usually a size 4 and this dress fit like a glove! The fit is very true to size and the fabric has some give so it will stretch and move with you. I knew the dress was gorgeous but it wasn't until I walked through the hotel lobby and conversations stopped as I went by that it really sunk in how amazing this dress really is! I received compliments all night long and I felt like a supermodel. I love the RTR experience and look forward to using it again for upcoming events!
