Perfect fit to eat, drink and dance all night!

This Aidan Mattox was a showstopper. Ordered for a formal outdoor wedding. So relieved when I put this one on since two other dresses did not work out. Tags were still attached so the dress was in pristine condition. Material is stretchy but thick enough for no spanx and no bra - perfect support! Received compliments all night on this and the length of the 10L was perfect with a 3 1/2 inch heel. I'm 5'8". I would recommend this to everyone!

Perfect dress for black tie wedding.

The bow detail is so much fun and really gives a little whimsy to a black formal dress. The fit was very womanly, the material is thick but has some stretch so it made a great silhouette. The strap can be worn on or off the shoulder and both look good.

Perfect first experience with RTR!

This dress fit like a glove and was stunning! It arrived hours earlier than expected, in perfect condition with the tags on, and well pressed. The material was slightly stretchy and hugged in all the right places, and it was very comfortable for being a gown. The dress was a tad long for me with heels but just looked like a train. My husband loved the slit and was sexy but classy. Can’t rave about this dress any more; it was exactly what I needed, and I received a ton of compliments!

Elegant stunner with beautiful shoulder and bust detail!

If you're like me and love a good black dress then this beauty is for you! Just enough detailing on the bust, and asymmetrical shoulder to keep it interesting but still elegant enough to be timeless. It does have some stretch to it, I should have sized down, the dress is slightly heavy and the weight and stretch for me at least, pulled at the dress and showed my strapless bra. This won't be a problem for anyone forgoing one. The waist in the 4 was roomy and shoulders in the 2 were slightly tight, looking back the 2 would have been better because of the slight stretching throughout the night. Also, the leg slit wasn't to high and made it easy to walk and move throughout the night. Overall a fantastic dress, loved it!!!

Beautiful dress, even with a leg cast!

This is a beautiful dress and the bow adds just the right amount of drama without being gaudy, you just need a pair of statement earrings for a great look! The fabric is heavy so it covers a multitude of sins but it does run a bit small, luckily my backup size was the larger one! It's also tricky to get into so you may want to have help. I broke my leg 3 weeks before this event so I rented this dress to direct attention upwards away from the knee scooter I had to use and because of the slit in front so I could sweep the skirt off my knee and not have it bunch up. Worked beautifully and everyone was impressed I looked so elegant while rocking a leg cast!! Would definately rent this dress again, hopefully next time with two working legs!

Show stopper!

This dress is truly stunning. I don't normally feel confident in such form-fitted dresses, but I felt fantastic in this dress. The material is thick and very forgiving, and also stretchy enough to move around and dance in. I am 5'3" and this dress was definitely long, but a 4" heel was perfect and the back just swept the floor. It was snug, but not too tight. This dress is definitely a show stopper, simple but stunning. I got a ton of compliments and felt gorgeous. Highly recommended.

First time renter, but definitely not my last !

This dress was absolutely stunning. It fit perfectly and was so comfortable to wear. For reference I am wearing four inch heels in the photo so the dress is a bit long. I can't recommend this gown enough.

I loved this dress!

The dress fit beautifully! The fabric was thick and good quality. The size 4R fit like a glove. The fabric has some stretch to it, so it’s forgiving. The 6R fit me as well, but the fabric bunched slightly when I walked. I wore 3” heels and the dress length was perfect. I loved wearing the dress! I received many compliments. Classic style and fit. It has a built in bra, which was nice. Everything about this dress was comfortable and high quality! I am 5’7”, 135 lbs and an hour glass figure.

Always get the extra size up!

The dress fit great! Always opt for the size up. I have been not watching my weight and the extra size up was more comfortable than the smaller size.

Perfect Dress!

I did not want to return this dress at all! I ordered the 2L and 4L. The 2L fit perfect I did not even try on the 4L. I received numerous compliments on the dress and the way I looked in it. I am highly considering buying it or renting it again for a gala next year. You will not regret renting this dress!

Very elegant, and got lots of compliments on pictures!

This dress is perfect for gals with hips but a small waist. I always have trouble making sure things aren't too small or bulky, and this dress nailed it! The thick fabric draped perfectly, and the bow was super elegant. My only complaint was that the "strapless" part was a little stretched out to the side, but this wasn't obvious. You can definitely get away with not wearing a bra since it's padded.

Stunner!!

This was my back-up dress for a "white-tie" wedding. It was gorgeous! So wish I'd had a second event. It fit perfectly, the length was great, the slit and bow added a feminine touch. Will rent this again to wear to an event. Beautiful gown!

Great annual charity event

Has to go over head- can't step into it. The bow could be problematic for some people (slipping), but it was fine for me. The 4R fit be better everywhere except the side where the zip is, and so I had to go up to the 6R so it ran a bit big in areas. Length is perfect for someone 5'4'' with tall heels.

Absolutely beautiful gown...

Unfortunately, I am between sizes. I recieved the 12L and the 14L. The 14 was a bit too big up top and the 12 was just a tad too tight through the hips, even with Spanx. The dress is gorgeous - fabric is just the right weight and stretch. I was surpised about the fit of the 14, considering I am a 36DDD, and wouldnt have thought the top would be so big, but maybe I am not a standard size. The 14 had a busted seam along the front of the dress, which definitely was part of the decision to wear something different to my event. I might have worn the 14 if not for the ripped seam. If the 12 had fit, I would have worn it and been so happy!

Received complements all night..

I'm a size 6 in dresses and pants, the dress fit perfect in waist, but a bit tight in the bust. Went up a size for comfort. Dress is made of a stretchy material(not jersey knit) it was perfect to dance in.. Slit wasn't to high and the length was perfect with 3 inch heels..Loved the bow, it made a black dress unique.. I received a lot of compliments and people were impressed it was a rental..

Hollywood glam, per a friend

Super flattering. Comfortable, easy to wear and you will feel like a million bucks. Highly recommend this dress. I wore it for a black tie, New Years Eve wedding. I will say that this material is not stretchy, it is very fitted- in the right places. I am just under 5'2 and wore a 3 inch heel. No bra needed- I am a 32B . I did wear spanx- the slit didn't show mine, and it just wears better and smoother if you have on spanx. It is also great to add a fur to it for winter.

Loved this dress so much! It runs small in the bust so I went up a size. The 6R was definitely long, even with 4 inch heels, but I used some hem tape and I was fine. So many compliments!

This was my first time renting from RTR but won't be my last. It was such a great experience. This dress fits very true to size. The material is forgiving so no spanx needed which was nice. It was very elegant yet comfortable. I loved it.

Beautiful Black Dress

I selected this dress for a wedding because of the great reviews. The dress is beautiful; however it fit me kind of long. I'm 5'2 and was wearing hills and it still dragged the floor. I ordered the 6R and 8R. The 6R fit perfectlly that I didn't need to try the size 8. Highly recommed! I only wished it was available in petite.

Very gamlorous and sexy! But order 2 dresses!!!

Pros: It was perfect for a formal/semi formal gala/award show. I received a lot of compliments regarding how glamorous and how stunning I looked. I felt very sexy yet classy all night. The size 6R is similar to the size that fit me best (see below as to why I didnt wear it). Built in bra. The design was amazing. Cons: VERY IMPORTANT! Order 2 dresses! The 4R fit me much better (true to size) but I noticed the bow was saggy/droopy and not nearly as flattering as the larger size. It also smelled like mildew! I brought this up to RTR as soon as I noticed this issue the same day the dresss came in. Their customer service was great althlough I would have preferred more of a refund. Rent 2 sizes just in case the bow is droopy. The 6R was big and dragged on the floor, but looked aesthically way better on my body without the droopy bow. I really wish this dress was a bit smaller to the ground. I wore 3 inch heels and it was still dragging and I ordered a regular! Ive never had a issue like the witb RTR and understand that things happen. think things could have been handled better.

Classic & Posh

I wore the size 2L only because the 4L could not ship. Fit was true to size but if you are busty (34C+ i advise sizing up a size). The 2L fit my body well in all places but defintely was snug in my bust region. I loved the dress and the bow detail. Very classic and felt like a million bucks. I also recommend the oscar de la renta saphhire earrings that i wore with it (now those were abosultely stunning)!

Parent's Formal Night Out

This stunning dress didn't disappoint! It's such a flattering fit and the large bow with the off the shoulder strap was my favorite! So many compliments on this dress. I'm so happy I had the two sizes as I had to wear the larger size thanks to the tight fit in the bust, but you'll need it if you like to have a secure fit. I'd rent this dress again!

Comfortable and beautiful dress

This dress was so comfortable to wear the entire night and i received so many compliments. I wore a 4R, even though the 2R fit, just because it provided a little more room for comfort. It was a couple inches long on me, so the hem dragged on the ground, but, ultimately, it was a great dress.

Simply elegant

This was my backup dress for an event and I'm so glad I ordered it. It was my first time using RTR so I didn't realize I would get 3 dresses. Two were of the dress I thought I'd wear but both my daughter and husband overwhelmingly voted for this one. It's sleek and beautiful on. I had no problems with the fit or anything slipping. This dress saw me through cocktail hour, a sit down dinner, and then the most dancing we've done in a long time.

Sexy yet classy!

This is a gorgeous figure hugging dress. Material is thick and makes the dress stay in shape beautifully on the body. I just had a baby 5 months ago and I felt like it was hiding at all the right places. I was so comfortable in it and got compliments all night. I loved this dress as compared to other long dresses is because it has a big bow in front and a long slit. So classy but Sexy.

Classic and beautiful.... but someone else at the same event was wearing the same dress.

This dress is beautiful! I wore it to a Mardi Gras Ball. Danced a lot with no problems except being hot. The fabic is a bit heavy but that wasn't a bad thing. It fit perfectly. Very comfortable. I did not have to wear a bra because there is a built in. I highly recommend it. I gave it 4 intead of 5 stars because someone else at the ball had it on, too so that was no fun.

Loved the bow!

The fit was perfect - I am a size 6. I am also 5'9" and was very nervous about the 6R's length as 6L wasnt available. The dress runs long and mine was just right with a 1.5 inch heel! Quality was amazing and I was comfortable through the night!
