Stunning sexy dress

I photographed a masquerade ball for a magazine and wanted to fit in. This dress was perfect. Got lots of compliments and my husband definitely loved it! Great dress! Had to order a couple sizes up though.

Perfect for a black tie wedding

Rented this as a last minute backup and did not disappoint!! This dress was absolutely beautiful. Shows the perfect amount of cleavage and emphasizes a small waist. Bottom half is sheer and looks amazing while dancing. Wish I would have ordered in a 6, I had to pull the sleeves up occasionally and the dress was slightly too long with 4 inch heals. Hid my awkward 12 week baby bump.

Dramatic, romantic dress perfect for curves

I wore this to a fancy Halloween party, and it made me feel amazing. It's a simple dress, but the fit is perfect on an hourglass or hippy figure, and the high-low hem makes it interesting. I loved the way it moved on me and the high front hem made it easy to dance in. I think this dress would flatter most figures, but it's definitely meant to suit curves!

The minute I saw this dress I knew it was perfect for my friend's black tie wedding. I paired it with a Lulu Frost constellation necklace and an aubergine Sondra Roberts clutch. Highly recommend.

It's a keeper

I guess it runs a little big I usually wear a 10. Have to buy it - it works for any season and event - I wore it with a jean jacket and combat boots to take it casual but sexy, a slouchy sweater for a weekend vibe, this pic a classic RL blazer and boots for day-to-night

I. Love. This. Dress.

I absolutely love this dress. It's so flattering and the length was perfect. I had to order a long because it was the only thing available, even thought I'm only 5'6''. With a moderate size heel the length was fine. I got compliments all night!

I just loved how I felt in this dress. And I received so many compliments on wearing. It was such a great dress. In all. It made me feel like dancing all night long which I did do a lot of dancing! I would love to wear this dress again for the right occasion.

Beautiful and unique

Love a black dress but want to stand out in the sea of black dresses? This is the one. Fit notes: VERY short in the front (but sexy), not great if you have a short waist (can't take up the shoulders), ample room for an ample bust, the perfect "party in the front, formal in the back" dress.

Cha cha cha times with ruffles

I have weak shoulders so I wasn't surprised that the sleeves would not stay up, but I don't think anyone could tell with the ruffles and high/low style of the dress. I think it looked natural.

It was cute and modest at the top. I ended up going with a different dress just due to personal preference. This dress is really cute though and the fabric feels nice on your skin.

Darling Dramatic Dress!

I was invited to attend a fundraiser event and did not realize that it was formal until shortly before the date! Thank God for RTR! I was hesitant about ordering online since I am a plus sized girl...but this dress could not have fit any better! The ruffles helped me feel flawless and covered troublesome tummy spots. The sleeves gently covered my batwing arms! I felt fairly flawless in this dress! The only teeny tiny problem I had was zipping it up- and that was only because ruffles tend to get in the way. Would I recommend this "little black dress?" Oh MY GOSH YESSS! RTR was so easy and effortless that I'm planning to attend another black tie event I wouldn't have dreamed of going to (since I don't have the struggle of dress shopping anymore)!

The most flattering dress!

Ladies, this covers the arms, hides a tummy, soft beautiful material. Order one size up and wear it off the shoulder! Order short or regular length if you are under 5'7... otherwise your heels will get caught in the back of the dress. Zipper can be a bit tricky due to ruffles at seam, but proceed slowly and it's no biggie. Did not wear this as another dress felt like a better option for the theme of the gala I am attending, but I will reorder this!

Magic dress

This is one of my most favorite rentals ever. It's so glam but still comfortable and effortless. I was worried about tripping over the train (or having someone else step on it) but once I put heels on, it was no problem. I didn't need to wear shapewear for this dress - it was pretty well constructed and hid all my main problem areas. I did wear a strapless bra - I think the shoulders are too wideset for a normal bra. The picture doesn't do the dress justice!!

It looks so great! I don't even want to return it!

I'am 5'7, without pumps, the tail will be almost on the ground. I did wear heels, so it works well. Size 4R fits me well, but still a little loose on the waist. My friends said it looks even better from back. Received a lot of compliments. I really don't want to return it!

Pretty backup

I didn't wear this, but kept it as my backup through several rounds of Unlimited shipments. The fit was nice, it was comfortable, but it just wasn't quite as WOW as the top choices I ended up with. It felt a little frumpy until I pulled the shoulders down. The longer flowing back of the skirt was a bit short for a Long. If you want ease, comfort, and to disguise problem areas, with a bit of flirty style, you will love this!

Flattering and comfortable to dance the night away.

Hugs curves in all the right places and the ruffle accents are flattering. I'm 5'8" and wore a 3" heal. The high-low hemline is dramatic and got me a lot of compliments.

It fit beautifully. Was a little tight when sitting down but other than that it was great. I loved the frills except they got caught in the zipper some. Absolutely would rent again

This gown worked perfectly for an upbeat formal affair. The tiers were gorgeous.

I attended a fundraiser gala for an arts school. The theme was "Let's Get Loud" highlighting Latin music. I felt festive and beautiful.

My Flamenco Dreams Realized

I didn't wear this but wanted to weigh in on fit. I normally wear a 6 or 8 and the 6L fit very well. The bottom is where I'm normally an 8 but this was perfect. It didn't look dowdy at all (per some other reviews). The length was such that I could have worn flats and it would not have been dragging on the ground. I'm 5'10". It looked youthful with straps up and extra sexy with them pulled onto the shoulders.

Glamorous yet comfortable

I loved wearing this dress to a spring black tie wedding! It was incredibly comfortable while also extremely flattering- and even showed off my shoes :). It was a bit low in the front but in a good way- though I could probably have sized down and been just fine. I'm 5'7 and the long was a perfect length. Would definitely rent again!

Super Flattering!

I love this dress. I rented it early to see if it will be something I'd like to wear to a black tie event I have latter in the month. LOVE. Perfect for my curves and flattering in all the right places. I'm on the taller side (5'7") and have a longer torso. The L was a perfect option for me and will be even better with the heals I anticipate wearing.

This dress fits great and is super comfortable.

This dress fits great and is super comfortable. It's also slightly more conservative but doesn't look matronly. It's a great option for anytime of year and a semi formal event!
