Fun, Flirty and Fancy!
I wore this dress for a black tie wedding in Miami, Florida. I was worried it wouldn't be dressy enough, but it arrived and the fabric is very luxurious, looks super high fashion. It definitely needs some accessorizing... I paired it with a crystal baubble necklace, giant cocktail ring, black patent leather pumps and red lipstick. I received tons and tons of complements and would absolutely recommend this dress! It is super comfortable and I totally danced the night away in my fun little frock. The 4 fit perfectly. I tried the 2, but it was a little too tight when it was zipped.

everyone loved the dress and asked where I got it from!
Great dress, very fun and cute, but also sophisticated. Skirt flairs out which I thought was awesome. Highly recommended!!

The dress was just amazing. I received compliments all night.
I am so sad to return this dress! I was in absolute heaven in it. The material feels elegant and the dress is so comfortable. You won't be disappointed. The fit - it was a tad too big in the stomach area but tight in the cleavage area (not the dresses fault. I wear a 34d)

Matronly
I found this dress to be rather matronly. Not as cute as I thought it would be. It could have been because the dress was a bit big. I ordered an 8 and a 10 as a back up size. The 10 was huge. The 8 fit, but still seemed to be a bit loose. Should have ordered a size down, and it might have fit a bit better and looked cuter.

Dress is very flattering in photos!
I rented this dress for a 60's inspired engagment photo shoot, and the dress was perfect. It fit so well and was made of high quality material. It has a little sheen/shimmer in it which made it even more elegant. If you follow the size chart it fits exactly as it says. The classic, vintage feel to it really made it special!

I'll always remember this dress because I wore it for my engagement party.
I wore this gorgeous dress for my Mad Men-themed engagement party, and it was a huge hit. I got compliments all night! It fit me very well at the bust and waist. The fabric looked and felt expensive and looked great in photos. Highly recommended and easy to wear!

Great dress!
I rented this for a wedding - the shape is super fun and flattering. The skirt is very full but the fabric is thick enough that it falls nicely. Do not wear if there's a chance of wind though - I flashed a lot of people... Paired it with a huge dannijo necklace for balance.

The best compliment I received was being told I had the best dress at the wedding (aside from the bride of course).
I loved this dress!!! I wore it an outdoor wedding at a vineyard. I received a lot compliments on it. At first I was worried about the back being too low cut and having to buy another bra for it, but when I tried it on it wasn't low at all. I was able to wear a push up bra instead. I also thought it would be a little but shorter but that was okay. What I also loved was that even though it is modest, the cut of the dress accentuates your figure. I like the vintage look. Its an elegant dress and absolutely worth it.

didn't wear
I thought this dress would be more structured and fitted. I needed a smaller size in the waist but a smaller size would likely have been too short.

Event was The Perfect Wedding Guide Red Carpet Networking Party
I chose this dress because I wanted to look polished and chic for this red carpet event. I have a small waist and have wider hips and rear so the flaired bottom and fitted waist was a great look. It top of the dress was a little snug for my fuller bust but overall the dress fit well. I paired the dress with a bold statement necklace, textured pantyhoses (similar to the model pictured) patent leather high heel Burberry pumps and a black clutch.

Classic black dress, fun shape
I rented this dress for my birthday dinner. I wore it with the green necklace that it is shown with. The 6 was a bit tight in the bust but the 8 was too big overall so I ended up wearing the 6. It is such a great canvas to add whatever accessories you want. Since it was NYE, I wore a sparkly jacket over. I loved it!

Receiving compliments from everyone about how amazing I looked!
I wore this dress for an MS charity benefit and I received SO many compliments. The cut of this dress is extremely flattering and it's the perfect LBD! I normally wear an 8 or 6 in dresses since I have a fairly small bust. This dress is snug in the bust, and while the 6 fit better overall in the hips and waist, it was too snug in the bust so I wore the 8 and belted the waist to get a nicer silhouette. One warning: the flair of this skirt is fun, but any little breeze will pick it right up so be prepared to hold the skirt down while you're outside :)

Wish it had fit!
This dress was absolutely stunning, but I couldn't fit the "girls" into it! Both the 4 and the 6 fit great except for the chest. I ended up trying it on every which way and hoping it would change by some miracle, but when it came down to it, I ended up not wearing it.

I ordered an a 8 and 10 as i am usually between the two sizes.. The 8 fit me perfectly! It was really comfortable and fun to dance in. Easy to return. I'm so glad I found and tried out this website!

I ordered both 4 and 6 thinking I would wear the 6 but ended up being more comfy in the 4! Great for the formal event I attended. It was very simple and classy. Loved it!

Classy meets sexy chic
This dress is extremely lovely. Conservative and classy, yet sexy and chic. My husband said it looked like the dress was tailor made for me. I received an endless string of compliments all night. The material is very high quality and it just looks expensive (as it is). Definitely would wear this again.

Beauitful LBD!
I rec'd SO many compliments. Loved the fit and structure of the dress. It was a perfect length for my company Christmas party, but I'm only 5'2, so it may be a little short for some taller women.

Exactly what I wanted!!!!
Honestly, this dress was so perfect, and exactly what I wanted. I knew that I had to get this dress because the shape of it goes perfectly with the shape of my body. I usually wear a size 6, but it was big in the chest area, and the size 4 fit absolutely perfectly. However, there was a substantial length difference between the 4 and the 6. The 6 was just above the knee, and the 4 was at least 2-3 inches above my knee. What also is not necessarily shown in the pictures of the model is that its a little shorter in the front, and is gradually longer on the sides and in the back - but I think it makes the dress look even better. Also, there were some ironing issues on the hem of the dress, and so I had to re-iron it, but it wasn't a huge deal. If you are looking for a 50s-retro styled black dress, this is the dress for you!

I absolutely loved this dress!
The fit was true to size. You want the top to be as snug as comfortably possible! I stayed away from the statement necklace because I felt the neckline was too high! I think statement earrings are a better decision!

This swinging skirt was made for dancing.
I loved the material and the circle cut of the skirt. It's longer in the back and has a great flare. Spinning around on the dance floor was super fun, but the cut felt prim enough for the ceremony portion of the wedding. Nice "V" at the back of the dress, too. As for the cut of the front/top... well, I honestly felt like I was wearing a bib apron. The armholes were too big in front, the waist was loose, and there's just too much material in general (and I have a pretty big chest for my size). If I owned the dress I could have take it to a tailor and probably made it work, but not with a rented dress. I'd say go 2 sizes down.

This dress was so fun and flattering. A little large in the waist though. Wish I would have ordered a 2 and 4. Not a 4 and 6. I wore it with a topshop edgy statement necklace.

Pretty LBD
I ordered the dress for a wedding and enjoyed wearing it, but I wasn't in love with it. Nothing wrong with the dress - it just didn't "wow" me. I paired it with a blue belt to add some interest. I liked the scooped back detail. But because of the scooped back, it was a slightly loose in the top. I perhaps could have gone a size down, but a six was not in stock when I ordered it.

Best dress ever! I have rented it several times and it never fails to amaze!
If I could give Christian Siriano a big smooch, I would! Thank you Christian for finally designing an amazing dress for every season! Dress is gorgeous and simple! It's flattering and so effortlessly chic! It holds it shape and is so much fun to wear if you're dancing--make sure to spin and twirl a lot! Best part about the dress is that you can wear it any time of year and it is flawless. You can dress it up with jewelry and make it look different for any occasion. Hands down the best dress I have ever rented on RTR and my absolute favorite!

GORGEOUS dress that made me feel awesome at a friend's wedding
Smaller size definitely fit - I ordered both a 2 and a 4. The flare was awesome on the skirt. The dress was NOT as shiny as it looks in the picture online, but was still gorgeous. Needs a statement necklace to be complete :)

This dress is super flattering. It's a little shorter in the front and longer in the back which makes it appropriate for a formal wedding. It's a little shiny but in a sophisticated way. I received many compliments and loved how it looked while dancing!

Dress paired with the necklace (also from RtR).
I got an 8 and a 10 and probably could have gone with a 6. If you tend to look good in an A-line, this will work well for you. This is a cute dress, though I preferred the one with the print also by Christian Siriano (it wasn't available). I paired this with bright tights and a necklace.

Walking down New York Ave in DC and this dress taking flight Marilyn Monroe-style.
This dress is a classic, minimal LBD with just enough flair to give (quick) movements (and windy nights) that ladylike mystery. I ordered 10 and 8. The 10 is my true size and it fit perfectly! I added an elastic bow belt to it and accessorized with lots of bangles. I love the dress.
