OBSESSED!!!!!

This dress was EVERYTHING!! I loved it even more when I received it. Very chic and classy with a hint of sexy...just amazing! It's super stretchy and comfy, the material isn't thin either. I wore it to a wedding a received endless (not kidding) compliments. I'm not kidding y'all, I felt like a bad ass b!tch in this one. Anyone thinking about renting this, RENT IT! You will not be disappointed, I promise! So perfect!

Gorgeous high low dress!

Perfect fit, the material hugs nicely but wasn't constricting. The material is great quality and the high-low design is amazing. Even with heels the back nearly touched the floor. Perfect dress for a holiday formal party!!

Cute dress

This dress was very cute, but I needed a size larger, which wasn't available. I'm short, but the train dragged a little, which I don't love for cocktails. May be a good option for someone taller.

LOVE LOVE LOVE

Absolutely loved this dress! I was super nervous because this was my first time renting and they didn't have any backup sizes or other dresses I liked as backups....so, I was getting only 1 dress in 1 size the day before our event. It. Was. Awesome. It was super comfortable and the material was thick enough to hide any indiscretions (which I was nervous about since it is form fitting). It's super flattering! I think I could have gone a size down. The sleeves were a little long and the small train in the back did drag a bit, but, it wasn't bad. It was raining outside so I just threw the train part over my arm when I walked outside. I would DEFINITELY recommend this dress for anyone looking for something form fitting, yet, forgiving.

Obsessed with this dress!

I wanted to keep this dress for sure! I got so many compliments and it was formal but still fun and edgy. The train is so much fun and while I was worried the dress would be a little short for a wedding, it was the perfect length! The fabric is incredibly comfortable and stretchy but with just enough structure to be flattering. I have nothing but good things to say about this dress!

I felt 6 feet tall

Fabulous show stopper dress! It was way to long for me to wear but that didn't stop my show, I draped the train over my arm and strutted my stuff. I sat on a high bar stool the rest of the night and pretended to be 6 feet tall.

Great fit

This dress was everything I wanted. It was sexy, unique, chic, but mostly it was comfortable!!!! I am petite, so the sleeves were a little long for me, but other than that... it was pretty much perfect.

Amazingly unique LBD

Felt so special in this dress. The train is a show stopper. Stretchy material makes it easy to wear. True to size. Short.

Fancy LBD

Really love the look of this dress! Gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because for such a fancy/expensive rental I hate when dresses have to be put on over head (potentially messing up ones hair and makeup) instead of having a zipper to step into the dress.....otherwise great fall/winter wedding dress. Easy to dress up with some chandelier earring and a dark lip

Best Customer Service & Gorgeous Dress!

I've had my eye on this dress for a while, but no occasion on which to wear it. I had a very last minute invite to an industry awards ceremony. I called Customer Service & requested expedited shipping. I could tell it wasn't easy to work around the system, but she made it happen. This dress is EVERYTHING! It's soft and sexy, but the train gives it an elegant touch. Even with my highest heels it was too long, but I felt like a queen as I lifted it slightly as I walked. Would definitely rent again.

Stunner!

I didn't wear it because it dragged 6" on the floor even with 4" heels (I'm 5'3"). So disappointed because it's gorgeous

I loved this dress! I felt like royalty when I wore it. So many compliments, from men and women.

Wore this dress to my boyfriend's fraternity Mardi Gras event. I wasn't sure about wearing black to a black tie event; but when I saw how unique this dress was, I was confident that it would make me stand out in a sea of black dresses. My boyfriend liked the dress on the website; but fell in love with it when I put it on. I felt like a million bucks. Everyone loved the dress! Pros: The fit was amazing. I didn't need to try on the backup dress (42; wore the 40). Due to European sizing, I was expecting the dress to fit tight. It was perfect. The fabric is a little heavy, but it came in handy in a well air-conditioned ballroom. Cons: Quite surprised when the dress arrived that it was made out of polyester, given its high-end appeal. The seams along the "train"/drape in the back were unfinished. The dress arrived in a damp garment bag; however, both dress inside were protected by plastic garment bags. Not really a con, but I had to wear REALLY HIGH heels in order to not have the train drag too much. Ended up holding it while on the dance floor. But I knew this would be an issue when I rented the dress. Overall, I would highly recommend this dress.

Shake your tailfeather

I didn't end up wearing this dress because the tail/train was a bit much for the event I was attending. I did have a great time trying it on and shaking it around in my apartment. The material is soft and has a good stretch but it's definitely not like a Herve Leger dress that will hold you in. It shows any and all bumps, so get your spanx ready. It's definitely fun and I would wear it for the right occasion.

First time using RTR,was a bit nervous. It turned out to be a lot of fun! the most comfortable dress

This dress made me feel so beautiful and full of confidence. The train was a little too long due to the fact that I don't reach 5 feet, but a little fabric tape Helped. It was the most comfortable dress I have ever worn. I was a little nervous because it was my first time using RTR, but it turned out to be a lot of fun! I will be using them again!

I like the combo of simple black and the drama of a train in the back.

I rented this dress for a party. It's pretty and very comfortable. The fabric has a lot of stretch so it doesn't feel constricting. The train is extremely long. I don't know how tall the model is in the picture to have it just barely touching the ground, but I'm 5'7 and even with very high heels with platforms the train was dragging on the floor. The edge of the train isn't finished which is a little surprising because it's a higher end dress, but it's not extremely noticeable especially in flattering lighting. Another reviewer recommended Spanx and I agree. It's not a super heavy fabric that hides bumps well. I have never worn Spanx, but I ran out and bought a pair to wear with this after trying it on. Overall, it's a very nice dress, just wish the train were slightly shorter. It also smelled nice as a bonus!

Fun & Fits Great

Stretch material and could have gone smaller - train in back is fun ,just walk slow as heels will catch. Paired with thigh high boots & fish net hose for New Years Eve fun.
