Love this dress!!

This dress is beautiful! The back is an absolute showstopper. I got so many complements! The dress does run tight through the hips which is why went with the 4 rather than the 2. Dress tape is highly recommended for the straps. The fabric is thick, so no bra needed. Love love love this dress and would definitely rent again!

Wore to a downtown gala, many women in black dresses but this one really stood out!

Quality of this dress is great, thick material that holds everything in place. Very true to size and love the dress, however the bust was a little looser than I prefer and I’m a 34DDD. Of all the long black gowns at my event, this one stood out from the rest!

I think I'm close to you in size, I'm debating ordering this dress. I am 5'5", 153lbs, but I carry most of my weight in my hips. Waist 30" and hips 43". Do you think this would fit me?
RTR CustomerJanuary 21, 2018
The numbers posted funny. I am 5 foot 5 inches, 150 pounds and chest is 34DD. Waist 30 inches, hips 43 inches.

slit and open back make this dress a standout

the top on my rental was loose so i top was large so i seemed to fidget with the straps all night and the hem at the bottom looked slightly damaged. luckily the overall look of the dress took the negatives away. open back and high (but not overly revealing) slit was classy and sexy.

This dress has dramatic sexy impact while staying classy. I received a ton of compliments.

The fabric of this dress is amazing quality, thick with a little bit of stretch. It’s thick enough to hide lumps and lines, so I didn’t feel I needed smoothing undergarments. I also felt comfortable not wearing a bra. The dress is surprisingly comfortable. The length was perfect for my height with a reasonable 3” heel.

This dress was stunning!

I loved this dress! Was beautiful and classy, but a bit sexy with the cutouts. SIZE UP! I'm a true 0 and ended up wearing the 2 as this designer runs small.

Loved this dress!! It fit a little small but the 4R was sold out. It does show every bump however I wore spanx to flatten out. Overall very memorable dress and received many compliments!

Was actually my back-up dress, but knew it was the one when it got a huge "wow" out of my husband

Very classy and elegant dress. Neckline was very flattering, and low back and side cutouts added a sexy touch. Was sad to send it back becuase I enjoyed wearing it so much!

Perfect dress for a black tie wedding

I wore this dress to a black tie wedding and it couldn't have been a more perfect fit. Runs true to size and hugged my curves in all the right places. It was the perfect combo of elegance and sexy.

Love this dress.

I wore the size 2R (4R was my back up). I usually wear a size 2 for a perfect fit, however the 2 was a little snug in the hips but fit the bust and the waist perfect. The wore the 4R around the house for about 20 minutes and the straps started falling down and knew it would continue all night, so I went with the 2R. Was the right decision, didn't have any problems with the straps all evening and was easy enough to dance and sit in.

Great dress for my Mardi Gras ball!

The dress was so cute and I received many compliments. I was nervous about it being backless but I just taped my boobs up and it was fine. Honestly, I don't even think that was necessary because of the way the dress was cut in the front. The dress had a little room in the back but it really just made it more comfortable as I was in it for 10 hours. The material is a little thicker which I appreciated. Be aware, the dress hanging strings do like to come out the sides but that's not a big deal! The dress would've been short for me in heels at 5'7" but the Mardi Gras ball I went to is better suited for chucks so the length was perfect (as you can see in the picture). I would definitely rent this dress again but in a long for any other event!

Stunning! Perfect for any formal event.

This was my back up dress, but as soon as I tried it on I sent the other dresses back. Proportions and height were perfect, which is hard to find for my height. The bottom of the dress barely touched the floor with heels, no dress tape needed. It was elegant and easy to wear, and the fabric was thick enough that I felt very comfortable without a bra or spanx. It was the perfect pick for a Mardi Gras ball. Would absolutely rent this again for any formal event.

Incredibly flattering!

I loved this dress! I felt beautiful in it and recieved many compliments throughout the night. The back is a show stopper! My only complaint was the top of the dress felt a bit big on me but i have a small bust. Some fashion tape kept things in line. I am 5'4", 132 lbs, 34 B (barely!). I wore 3" heels and the dress did not come close to touching the floor, showed off my shoes, which I did not mind. I would describe my body as straight, narrow hips, no booty. The 4R was too tight over my hips/butt. The only other thing that was just annoying was the hanging strings kept showing! I wanted to cut them out but didnt want to "damage" the dress. They don't even do anything, the dress doesn't need them to hang. Fashion tape helped keep them in place for most of the night, but if I had been dancing at all they would have shown even worse! Overall I loved it and had a great experience with RTR!

This dress was the perfect combination of classy and sexy.

I felt like I was showing off all my best assets, while leaving some to the imagination. In other words, it showed off my behind and bosom without feeling like I was exposed. I got tons of compliments all night, and my boyfriend absolutely loved it! Most importantly, I felt gorgeous :) As a relatively petite girl (5'3"), with 4" heels the gown was just barely off the ground. I wore a sticky bra, which helped make the most of the keyhole bust! However, I definitely could've gone braless. The fabric is comfortable enough to do so, and I wouldn't have felt like I was falling out. The fabric is quite sturdy, which was great for a wintertime event, but it might be a little too much for a summer shindig. I loved how this dress fit me snugly, and therefore I felt it fit true to size. However, others might feel that it runs a bit small, so I definitely suggest ordering two sizes to be safe!

Not Good Option For Tall Women

The fit was true to size, but the hen is a least 4 inches too short for my 5'7" frame.

This dress fit perfectly and runs true to size. I couldn't find a bra that worked with the dress because of the back and the keyhole, but it was fine without one.

Very snug fit

This dress fit like a glove!! Felt so tight and secure, I would recommend this dress. The chest part has wiring by the breast so no need to wear a bra especially if you are small chested like me! I ordered this as a back up in case I didn't like my original choice (which I did) so I ended up not wearing. If it had not been for the other dress being so beautiful, I would have definitely worn this one!

I wore this to a military ball and I got a ton of compliments on this dress!

Fit like a glove! The back was my favorite part. I was nervous the slit in front was going to be too high, but it was perfect. I would wear this dress again.

Very sexy but didn't fit

I ended up going with a different dress. I have a small chest and frame so went with the smallest size available. My hips do have some shape though, so when I tried on the dress, the slit was a lot more seen that I expected it to be. It didn't just appear when walking and was a little too wide for me. My chest is super small so that was another issue. The dress is backless so I couldn't wear a bra. I tried my Nubra but the little slit in the front made it too visible. Overall, it's a beautiful dress and I could have made it work but would've likely felt comfortable because of those couple of things. I ended up getting another dress sent to me.

This fit so well I wanted to buy it.

So many compliments, I felt awesome all night! I usually wear between a 0-2 (more like 2 right now) so I ordered a 2 and 4 as a back up. I am 5'2'' but after reading the reviews felt comfortable getting the R and opposed to P (petit wasnt available) and with some short 2'' heels this was the perfect length. I have a small chest and usually dresses are too gappy up top but this was perfect. No bra needed. Would 100% rent this dress again.

Loved this dress!!!! It was a tiny bit short with heels and I am a relatively short person. Also was a bit loose in the bust area but nothing a little fashion tape couldn't help. Pictures don't do this dress justice!

Beautiful dress!

I ended up wearing my backup dress because this was too large for me (I usually wear a 4 and this was a 6). It's definitely true to size and STUNNING! It's a little on the short side, so order the long if you're taller. I'm only 5'5 and could have worn the regular with flats. Great Dress - will rent again!

Great dress!!

The dress is beautiful and the material very comfortable and flaterring. It was perfect for a black tie wedding and i received a lot of compliments. The dress fit a little loose at the top it's probably a better fit for larger chested women but i was able to hold it in place with fashion tape. Overall, very happy with this dress.

Perfect fit for those who are petite.

This dress is pure elegance. I wore it to a black tie wedding and it was a stand out. I am only 4ft10" and with moderate heels it was the perfect length. The size 0P wasn't available but 2P fit just fine. It hugs the curves in all the right ways and the back is gorgeous.

A jaw dropping dress!

I wore this to a military ball and got so many compliments. It's simple, beautiful and classy. The dress has a thick material so no linings show. I wore a sticky bra but I could have gotten away with not wearing one at all. The slit is the perfect length and the open back gives the dress the little bit of sexy it needs. I did not have any problems with this dress. Would wear again!

Getting mistaken for Katie Holmes!

I wore this dress to a gala for Derby and it was a perfect dress. Elegant but with the back detail it was also very sexy. The only con about the dress is that the top was a little too big for me. I have a fairly small chest so the top kind of puffed out, but after multiple showings to friends and family before wearing it, the puffing out was not as noticeable as I thought it was. I received endless compliments all night and felt like a celebrity.

This dress is gorgeous!!!

I rented this dress for the Sports Emmy awards ceremony. It fit wonderfully, other than the straps being a little long (a few minor tweaks and it fit like a glove!) I got compliments all night and felt like a million dollars! I would definitely rent this dress again. I'm 5'5" and 130 lbs, 32D and the size 6 was perfect. I didn't have to wear a bra - the material is thick and the boning in the bodice provided plenty of support.

Sexy but still perfect for a formal affair

I loved wearing this dress. Even though it was "just" a black dress, the small details made it stand out among a see of other gorgeous dresses. The key hole was just deep enough for a little cleavage but not distracting. The only downside was the length; I'm only 5'3 and had to wear three inch heels and it didn't touch the ground as i prefer for it to graze the floor. Even with that, I loved this dress and would rent it again in a heartbeat. The dress I got had a broken wire in the bust area which dug into my rib cage the whole time and left a swollen mark still the next day so ill be calling about that since I had no other option for the night with no time to purchase a new one.

I felt like a million dollars in this dress! It was gorgeous and I got lots of compliments!

Such a cool dress! The fit was true to size and I had enough room in my hips, it wasn't tight as others had stated. Even with the cutouts, I didn't feel like it was going to fall off or anything. This style looked best on me because I have broad shoulders. I didn't wear a bra as recommended by other reviewers and it was fine to wear it without. Length was perfect with heels. I didn't love the cut outs under the arms as much but the back one was great and made me feel sexy. Very nice material and many strangers commented on how nice the dress looked on me. It was a really pretty dress with a tad of sexiness!

Show stopping back

This dress was a great option for me as I am short (5'2). With heels on this dress was great. Fit a little tighter in the hip/butt are but after about an hour of wearing, the fabric loosened up a bit. I received many compliments on the neckline and open back

Got tons of compliments on the dress, the dress was a showstopper!

The dress was a little loose up top, and a smidge short for me (I'm 5'10"), but overall the dress was perfect and comfortable and a huge hit!

Made for a shorter person with larger bust.

Length was too short for me - even with no shoes on. Back cutout is very pretty, but front is unsupportive unless you can fill it out.
