Cute dress. I would've worn this one but another option looked better.

The fit and material was nice. The split was stylish. I didn't like the adjustable straps: made the dress look a little cheap.

Very very stretchy with adjustable shoulder straps

I usually don't make this mistake because I try it on but this dress is a little larger than normal- there is a lot of stretch and curvy girls will look amazing ! It's easy to get on and off and it may not look big in the photo but when I walk you can see the extra material in the hips and waist which was disappointing :( Oh welL!

Beautiful dress! So happy I rented!

The dress does have a lot of stretch but if you order the right size, it is very flattering! I'm usually a M-L in dresses, did a large and happy I did! The color is beautiful. The slit is a little risky but cute for a night out! I would rent again!

LOVED this dress.

Fit like a glove, thick enough fabric that it smoothed everything out, quality was on point and the length was great on me even being 5’2. I would absolutely rent this again.

I was getting compliments all night in this dress!

I wore this dress 20 weeks pregnant to a wedding and it was perfect. The color is so pretty and the slit at the leg is very flattering. I was even chasing around my toddler, in heels, and I felt comfortable. I did have to keep pulling it down, as it would ride up a bit but that wasn't a big deal to me.

I love this super trendy dress by Shilla! Running true to size with a lot of stretch, I recommend wearing your true size for your primary size and going up for your back-up. This style is fitted throughout the midsection and at the hips. It works best for A-C cup sizes. You are not able to wear a standard bra with this dress so you should wear a NuBra or no bra since it has spaghetti straps and a cut out beneath the bust area. At 4’8”, the length hit mid calf on me. With adjustable straps, lots of stretch, and a flirty cut-out, this dress is perfect for a night out. Pair with nude stiletto pumps and the Parker Feather Earrings by Lizzie Fortunato to complete your outfit

Very sexy and classy!

Wore this to a comedy show in Hollywood with the hubby and another couple. The color is a beautiful plum and is very complimentary with a fair complexion. I ended up wearing the large because the Medium was just a hair too tight...somewhere in between would've made it a 5 Star review. The slit is sexy but not so high that your worried about flashing everyone while climbing in and out if the Uber. I'm a full C small D cup and even the Medium held my chest in no problem.

Wonderful dress - perfect for warmer winter wedding in Austin

I loved this dress. I got it to match my husband's tie and it looked great. It was a little tight, but not too much and I definitely would not have wanted a size up. The cut one was perfectly glamorous to add a little flare but not too much. I got so many compliments throughout the evening!

Did not fit right

I was so excited to receive this dress and it was my first disappointment with RTR. The size did not fit, it was so big I had to reach out to RTR for a replacement. If you are a true XS/0/00 and petite this dress may be too large and long for you! RTR was great at getting me a quick replacement right before my event!

Odd fit for hourglass shape.

This will be super flattering on the right person, however for me I found it to be loose around my waist and tight around my bum. Great stretchy fabric and construction otherwise.

Lots of compliments!

The fit is true to size and a perfect length and the adjustable straps were a major win! The keyhole in the front did allow for my bra to be seen which I didn't notice until too late. Still it was very pretty and comfortable for dancing too!

Didn't wear, but great quality!

I ordered a size large to try, it was too tight in the hips, but pretty loose up top for my figure. Great thick material, and adjustable straps.

Comfortable, easy to move in, better for B+ cup

Easy to move in even though it is form fitting. Great color with the keyhole mid to make it stand out. True to size except this is meant for a B-cup or larger. My A's still left extra material to fill.

Wore this dress to a wedding - it was great, very comfortable and felt well made. I was worried about it being too long, but the slit makes the length very nice

Pretty dress but awkward fit.

Loved the style, color and material of the dress, but like other reviewers have stated, the top is big and there is no room to wear even a strapless bra because of the cutout. I think if I had larger, fuller breasts this dress would have been a knockout. And I loved the longer length on me since I have long legs, but unfortunately, it just didn't work out for me. However, RTR saved the day by overnighting me two alternate dresses, one that worked perfectly.

Fun dress for the evening!

The dress was really fun and a great color! However, the cutout area was kind of strange and it kept bunching so it wasn’t noticeable really. I’m not sure if this was just because I’m small-chested or if it’s just an odd fit, but can’t imagine hiding any type of bra under it!

Sexy and Comfortable!

Love, love, love the slit! I'm a curvy girl so it was very fitted. I could have sized up but I like the way the medium looked. I'm short (5'2") so I worried about the length but I think it hit at a good spot.

The design is simple but quite flattering, and it complemented my platform heels. I danced all night long and had no issues whatsoever. It's that comfortable!

Perfect for a one-time occasion dress

Very happy with this dress! The fabric and construction were heavy and high-quality. It wasn't clingy at all, so there was no need for shapewear underneath. I did need to wear a stick-on, backless NuBra simply because of the cutout in the front; all other strapless bras showed through. The one thing I didn't love was how the fabric was sewn to overlap on the cross-over: it stuck out a little oddly. If that had been smoother, it would have been perfect and five stars. Loved the service and whole experience, so I'll definitely recommend and rent again!

Nice dress can't wear bra

The dress is stretchy and gorgeous. You can't wear a bra due to the cut out. Straps are adjustable. Unfortunately I should've went with a large as the extra large was too big in the top and I wasn't comfortable wearing it.

It's baggy and wrinkly and one of the straps was on backwards

Unless you have huge perky boobs (that won't fall out the keyhole) this is not the dress for you.

I ended up not wearing this one for my event but it was beautiful and will likely rent for something else. It was a little big even for the XS but not by much!

I got many compliments in this beautiful dress.

This dress is very stretchy and forgiving. The fabric is thick and was nice for a chilly evening in April. The cups gave me enough support while not being a real bra, and I was happy the straps were adjustable. This fit me very nicely, despite being a tiny bit pouchy above my butt in the back. I felt very confident and sexy in this dress.

My unique dress :)

I was a little nervous renting from this website for my junior prom night, but I was pleasantly surprised with the service. As a first time customer, this was actually my free second dress option which I was grateful for because my first option was too large. While the fit was perfect, it did have a tendency to ride up a bit which ultimately wasn't a big deal considering its length. The dress was very comfortable for a long night of dancing and fortunately had adjustable straps.

I did like this dress, but I had this and another replacement. I chose to wear the other one because it was much more comfortable. After having 2 kids back to back, I didn't want to worry about sucking in all night. :)

Great quality material that hugged me perfectly in all the right spots! Color was gorgeous and it was comfortable to dance in.. received so many compliments and was a show stopper. I also requested that the dress be delivered a day in advance, and within minutes I had a response from RTR and they were able to accommodate my request.. outstanding customer service!

Sexy and sweet

I'm 5'1 athletic build with larger than average boobs for my size and this dress fit perfectly and made me feel great all night. The cut out and slit give it an added touch of sexiness without being too much. Stretch material makes it comfy to dance in all night, and length was great for a spring wedding. Only complaint is the adjustable straps made the dress seem a bit cheap and the thick fabric made is so I COULDNT adjust them so they were uneven all night. The cutout means no bra, but good quality thick fabric so it was totally fine.
