Stylist Review

LBD! This dress fit like a glove and im usually and XS/S. I would say this runs true to size but leans towards a touch small. It was a very appropriate length on me, above the knee. It was snug throughout but not too tight. There are not zippers, ya jsut gotta shimmy into it. Material has some stretch. Would wear to a semi formal event or on a date.

Is the lace see-through or nude material behind it?

Cute

Rides up pretty badly. But, super cute if you don't have to walk around much.

Too small and tight

The dress is beautiful but it was too small. Normally I have no problem wearing tight dresses but this one was so tight that it was unflattering. I just ordered the dress in a larger size because I do want to wear this pretty dress.

Sexy body con dress that can be worn for many occasions.

The fit is snug and hugs in all the right places. The dress doesn't show much skin but it is super sexy due to the fit and lacy pattern. I got many compliments on it.

Beautiful dress

Gorgeous dress, high-quality material, it does run on the small side so you might want to size up. I'm typically a size 2 and chose the Small, but it was definitely on the tighter side.

Fit like a glove!

I wore this to a formal gala.. I normally wear an XS, but it was wayyyy too snug, but the small fit perfectly. I would rent this dress again and again. Unfortunately I didnt take any full body pictures in this beautiful dress!

Nice dress, soft material, great for a holiday party!

Definitely runs small (without a lot of give) as other women have noted. Especially tight in the arms (I have somewhat thicker arms), and it did ride up a bit when I walked, but perhaps a L would have been a better choice. Hard to know with only S, M and L options!

I wore the dress for my office holiday party! I received so many compliments!

It fit perfectly! I loved the lace accents on this dress, it gave the allusion of showing skin without actually showing my skin. This dress is perfect for a anytime of year. I loved that I could pair it with tights since its December but I could also wear this dress in the Spring time as well because it has sleeves.

This dress fits like a glove, it's sexy, classy and elegant all in one.

I was very happy with this rental. I took the suggestion of the other reviewers and sized up to a large and I'm happy I did. The fit of the large was comfortable and I was able to move around and dance all night without feeling restricted or the dress riding up. Thank you RTR!!!

Way too tight, especially on the bottom

The dress looked nice in the model pictures, but was completely different in person. I usually wear a size XS or 2 or 4. Given the other reviews I read which said it ran small, I ordered the S and M sizes. The M was so fitted around my bottom that it did not look classy...and I'm not a curvy person! It was also a little shorter than I wanted. I'm sure it would be fine on other people, but I definitely recommend ordering up a size or two!

At first I thought it was toot right to wear but it does stretch quite a bit. I wouldn't wear it to work again but it was nice.

I still think this is work appropriate, just not skin tight.

I REALLY wanted this to work out, but it was just too tight on the bottom. I am small on top and thought medium on bottom, but this hugged so tight, that I couldn't zip it by myself.

Sexy LBD but short!

I loved the style of this dress, and the material is thick so it is perfect for winter. The dress is short and it rides up as you walk. I wish I had remembered black stockings, as I think I would have felt less exposed when walking and sitting down. I am 5'7", 155 lbs, 34B and I wore a size large with Spanx underneath.

I got this as a back-up dress and didn't end up wearing it.

It was a lot shorter than I expected. Very pretty dress, but wasn't formal enough for the event I was going to.

I was not able to wear this dress to the event.

This dress definitely runs small or is a juniors size. It looked to be of good quality, though I did have trouble unzipping the dress to try it on.

Size Up!!

This dress is lovely, but definitely runs small. I did not end up wearing it because it was too tight and too thick (the weather changed and was hotter than forecasted). I would rent again but probably at least 2 sizes bigger because I don't want it to fit like a second skin. Would be great for late fall or winter parties.

Very tight-fitting

I read that this was tight-fitting but I guess I didn't realize just how true that was. I ended up not feeling comfortable wearing this. Too tight for my taste.

Way too tight, especially at the bottom. Don't bother if you are above size 8 and have hips!

My usual RTR dress size is 10 (for reference, I am 5'8", 154 lbs, 36C) and this dress is size Large was too tight for me at the hips to wear it in public. The dress is short to start with and, as soon as I start walking, the skirt rides up in a major way. This dress is best for petite women. The top part of the dress fit okay, but despite the well-placed lace stripes, it wasn't as figure-flattering as I would have expected. Wasn't crazy about the stripe on the upper arm either. By the way, the lace stripes are backed by a nude-colored fabric, so they are not see-through. Aside from the fit issue, this is a comfortable dress to wear and I like the long sleeves for overly airconditioned restaurants.

Nice alternative to solid black

Wore this to my niece's sweet 16, she requested all guests wear black. It was nice to have the lace to add dimension since everyone else was wearing black. Received many compliments. It was a little on the short side but I liked it and so did my hubby.

Simple standout!!

I rented the xs. It fit like a glove and was not too short for my 5 foot frame. It was snug but hugged all the right places. Very flattering fit. Heavier weight so it was perfect for a colder weather formal event. I would rent this one again! I would go up a size if you are hippy or busty.

Sexy yet classy

I rented this for a cocktail-attire charity gala, and it was perfect. The tight fit, short length (but not too short), and lace cutouts make it feel sexy, but the long sleeves and high neckline keep things classy. I’m usually an extra small, but the XS was a little too tight, so I sized up to a small. I recommend ordering the next size up if you have any curves. My only complaint was that the dress rode up a bit after sitting or walking, but not a deal breaker.

Classy but sexy

This dress runs very small! I ordered the small and medium and wore the medium which barely fit. Definitely size up. It is comfortable, however, I did feel that the skirt rode up a lot, but since I wore tights this was not a big issue. I received several compliments.

Great Dress

I wore this Christmas Eve & the fit was perfect. Based on other reviews I chose to order this in a large & am glad I did, as it does run small. This was a backup to my original order since the one size of the other dress became unavailable.

Versatile dress -well made and comfortable !

I wore this dress for a sales awards dinner / cocktail dress . what I love about this dress is it's made out of thick material and has long sleeves so it was perfect for wanting to have something dressy but not wanting to figure out what to wear on top of a sleeveless dress to a cocktail party . I am definitely an extra small , I typically wear zero or double zero I have a small chest and very small shoulders however I do have a rear end ! I sized up to a size small based on reviews in this thing was really tight . I would definitely size up on this one . what I think is so versatile about this dress is I planned on having bare legs with heels but my feet hurt and so I just put on solid black tights in a war somewhat casual booties and it looked fine . I really like that about the stress , also there is no need for a necklace so it makes just earrings and bracelet easy Bam you're done . Highly recommend if you want comfort and you don't want to be cold! PS this is a tight dress that hugs all curves.

Simply Perfect!

I recently lost a lot of weight due to health issues (5'2", 90 lbs) and it's extremely hard finding clothes that fit. I was worried the XS would be too big, but it was absolutely perfect! The fabric is stretchy and molds perfectly to size! The lace detail is just enough to make this classic back dress interesting and unique. I received many compliments. Would definitely rent this one again!
