Flirty Black Number
Size worn: S
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this little black number for a rehearsal dinner for a Charleston wedding. The thick fabric is forgiving and I was able to wear a strapless bra with the dress. The strap that goes around the neck is a little loose and awkward, but overall, I loved the dress. Small fit perfectly.

Perfect for my New Year's Eve Party!
Size worn: XS
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
Wore this dress for a New Year's Eve Party! I got so many compliments all night; the dress is form fitting through the waist and flared right at my hips…super flirty and sexy! I recommend ordering a size up if you have doubts; the material is stretchy but still runs pretty tight.

Hot dress
Size worn: S
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I rented this dress to be a judge for some exhibition boxing matches, and I loved it. It was incredibly comfortable, and I got the ultimate boyfriend seal of approval: "It looks hot, but like you're not trying." The halter strap at the neck was a little bit loose, but not bad at all, and it was actually probably more comfortable that way. The skirt was short, but not so short it made me nervous. I was very happy with this dress.

Dress fit great, awesome customer service
Size worn: S
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Experience Pro: dress arrived on time, packaged up, easy process for returning the dress. Customer service was responsive and sent out a replacement dress once I called about the damaged dress. New dresses were fedex overnighted and arrived next day, 2 hours before I left for my party. Experience Con: The XS size i received had two big holes in it at the seam. One of the previous reviewers mentioned the same thing. Not sure if this is the same issue or another two holes appeared on another dress. The dress: The dress is very stretch so I fit into both the XS and S however, the S was a little longer and was more appropriate for a work holiday party. The XS was considerably shorter (shorter than my finger tips when my hands were down on my legs). Loved the dress, like other reviewers said the neck strap was long, probably stretched from previous use. I used a safety pin to shorten it up and it was good to go. The first set of XS, S dresses seemed more worn than the second sets of dresses that got sent out due to damage noticed on the first set. The second set of dresses were like night and day compared to the first set. Even though it was the exactly same dress, the fit was much better. My boss loved the dress. She said I should just keep it and not return it... was tempted but alas sent all 4 dresses back. Quick drive and drop off at the post office and I was done. I will definitely rent from here again!

I loved it!
Size worn: S
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
This dress was perfect for my reunion. I ordered both the medium and small based on reviews. I would have preferred to wear the medium for a little extra length and room, but the straps were way too long. It may work for someone larger chested. The small was comfortable and fit fine. I felt great and would love to own this LBD!

Classic, comfortable LBD!
Size worn: L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The dress is very comfortable. It's a heavy, stretchy material, so factor that in if you plan on wearing it to an outdoor event on a hot day. It was great for a rehearsal dinner. It is definitely low cut so make sure to try it on prior to the event with several bra options! I ordered the M and the L and ended up wearing the L since I didn't want to feel like I couldn't eat dinner. The dress is very forgiving material, though so either would have worked.

Really flattering and comfortable too!
Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was great! I wore a medium, and it fit for the most part, but the halter strap was a little too loose. RTR was out of smalls, so I wasn't able to order a backup size, although I don't think a S would've fit me in the bust even if the S was a better fit around the neck. Still, I'd definitely recommend getting this dress!

Simple but impressive!
Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This was my #2 pick but ended up wearing it for a friend's wedding. The skirt hits a little longer for short girls like me. Also, I have a short torso so the halter strap was a couple inches too big, wish it was adjustable but it wasn't anything a few safety pins and fashion tape couldn't fix. There was a small hole in the side seam when I received it but I stitched it up easily. I thought it was pretty simple but I got TONS of compliments at the wedding. It really emphasizes the curves of an hourglass figure. The fabric is quite stretchy but also thick so it holds you in while still offering a little give. Great LBD!

When I called about the hold in the seam, they refunded me and promised it would be fixed for my next occasion. I received it this time in perfect condition. Best customer service!

This was a back up dress that I fell in love with. I went for the XS after reading the reviews. It's so forgiving and flattering. It hugs you in all of the right places. There were a few holes in the seams so I had to return it. I would buy this dress to have has a staple LBD in my closet. UPDATE: I rented this again for a wedding and received many compliments. Flattering, flirty and super sexy! I

I am so happy that there is finally a company out there like RTR! It isn't often that I get to wear the same dress more than once...so the idea of this company is a great option for the woman that never wants to be caught wearing the same thing twice.

This dress is fantastic! It fit like a glove, yet was comfortable to wear. The quality looks and feels expensive. I wore it for my birthday party and got several compliments. My two favorite things about this dress are that it accentuates the waist (yet hides the hips) and the fun and flirty skirt.

This is definitely a figure flattering dress. I loved it because it accentuated my waist but hid my problem areas (butt and thighs). The flare at the bottom is flirty (not "little girl-ish") and the double straps keeps it interesting. Overall, a very beautiful, classy, and fun dress appropriate for any occasion!

Looks like a simple black dress but the details and fabric add a lot of character. It's very fitted in the waist, so definitely take that into consideration before renting. It's a great LBD!

Super sexy dress.
Size worn: S
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I rented this dress for a "Sinatra Soiree" event in Washington DC in the summer of 2011. It was super sexy, body-con but with the drop waist skirt. Unfortunately the shoulder straps were just too long for me- as I was petite on top. But I would highly recommend to anyone- it would just be dependent on getting the right size. It does run large so make sure to size down.

Great dress but the straps were really weird. They were about 4 inches too long which made it imposable to ware with out a hair-thing to shorten them... which means a sweater to cover the back. I wore it anyway it was very comfortable- minus the straps.

cute but not ideal
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I ordered this as a backup for my bachelorette party but ended up wearing a sequin Milly dress instead. This was cute, but the other reviewers were right -- the straps were way too long. There's also a look to it that makes it look like a mix between a LBD and a suburban mom's tennis dress. My boyfriend loved it because it was very tight fitting, but my friends thought it was too daytime. I wish I had ordered an XS instead of the S...maybe the straps on the XS would've fit better. And it's so stretchy, even more so than a Herve Leger, that I don't think I would've had a problem zipping the XS up. Maybe I'll get it again for another occasion, but it wasn't right for this party.

"Best you've ever looked"
Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I definitely don't normally wear dresses this fitted but I felt very comfortable and sexy in this one. I am an 8 in most dresses and wore the M in this, but the S also fit (the looser M was slightly more flattering in the stomach). I did not have a problem with the neck strap as some have, both sizes fit comfortable there (but I also have a fairly full bust). Great dress!

The dress didn't work for me. The straps were too long on top and the dress went down to my knees. It didn't flatter me. I think it'd work best for someone with a larger chest, curvier body and a little taller.

I loved this dress. Super sexy and form fitting but still elegant without being showy. I am 5'5" 112 normal size. Small bust and short legs. i will say the torso was a bit long. I actually ended up rolling it under the empire seam once and you couldnt even tell. It shortened it just enough for my shorter legs :)

I was so worried that this dress would be too short from the product description but because of the stretchy, heavy material it was much longer that I expected (to my relief). I only had a problem with the straps- either they have gotten a bit stretched out or are just too big but I taped them down and honestly didn't even notice them the rest of the night. The dress was so flattering and the skirt was great for dancing! I got compliments all night on it. Definitely would rent this one again.

This was my second choice pick. It was very form fitting through the hips and didn't give me a very flattering shape! This dress would be best on someone with narrow hips it gave me WAY too many curves!
