This dress is fantastic- easy to wear, elegant, easy to dress up or down w/jewelry or shows. I'm very tall and it was long enough.

This dress exceeded all my expectations!

It was form fitting, although it was a little long for me. This problem was fixable--I wore my tallest heels.

I felt gorgeous and sophisticated at a formal wedding located at a beautiful Country Club.

This dress was sent as a backup because my original dress was missing the additional size. I felt a little unsure based on the picture, but fell in love as soon as I had it on. It had a way of being extremely flattering while still hugging my curves. I did use spanx to make sure everything as where it needed to be, but I felt extremely comfortable in this dress. I did have to wear flats, but that was not a negative to me. I paired it with the Kate Spade Uptown necklace and received so many compliments. This is one I would rent again!

Loved it!

This is an absolutely amazing dress. Very simple yet extremely flattering. True to size, although, if you have curves, order a size up as a backup. I typically wear a 4, but ended up wearing a 6R to fit my butt. I also wore a strapless, and then used a small amount of garment tape to keep the sides in and hide my bra- It worked wonders. Highly recommend this dress.

Great fabric and fit.

Dress is great! Simple and striking. The fabric has quite a bit of stretch to it, but is pretty thick and lined so has a smoothing effect. Wore with a strong statement necklace, great effect on the high neckline.

This dress made for an elegant, upscale night!

This designer definitely runs big. I wore a 2R, when I normally would wear a 4. It was a little tight in the shoulder area. The length was perfect and it was comfortable to dance in!

This dress had everyones head turn when I walked into the room!

I wore this dress to a black tie wedding in june. With 4 inch heels the back of the dress dragged just a little bit, but it wasn't noticeable or inconvenient. This dress really showed my silhouette, making my butt look amazing! I was also able to wear a normal strapless bra which was awesome! I love this dress, and I would recommend it to anyone who wants a classic, romantic look! I paired it with dangly earrings and a gold bracelet! I ordered the 2R as a backup and it was huge on me in the stomach area.

My backup size was unavailable so RTR provided two additional different dresses and no extra cost!

I'm 5'9 and the long was perfect length with flats (I was working a formal event). Just skimmed the floor and has a lovely small understated train at the back. The fit is true to size and was comfortable to move in even though I have gained A LOT of weight :( any discomfort in this dress I attribute to the weight gain. Otherwise it was easy to bend over, sit down and move easily all night long in. In hindsight I should have ordered a 16W in a diff size but overall a wonderful experiment. The RTR was very quick in responding to every single one of my questions and doubts and I had many in renting a gown for four days that I'd never tried on. They provided 3 different options for me without me even asking after my free backup size was unavailable, which was AWESOME. Will def rent from these guys again!!!!

Stylist Review

I am obsessed with this dress and will definitely be renting for my next formal affair! I was afraid that this dress would be too plain but the sleek neckline and body hugging material definitely makes this dress stand out from the crowd! The fabric does have some stretch to it so it is great for any bust size. This dress is perfect for hourglass, pear, athletic, petite, and straight and narrow body types! Because of the neckline I would definitely suggest wearing a nubra or going braless! If you are a little self conscious about certain parts of your body you can definitely wear spanx however the fabric does definitely suck you in a little and hug all the right places! I cannot wait to be invited to a black tie event so that I can wear this dress!

Classic yet sexy

This dress may look pretty basic, but I felt everything but basic. This dress is sophisticated yet sexy. Fits pretty true to size. I didn't even have to wear a bra with is. I was comfortable and was able to dance all night long. I would recommend this for a black tie affair in a heart beat.

Gorgeous Dress

From the pictures, I thought the material would be stretchier than it actually was which is neither a good nor bad thing, just different from what I had expected. It is a very high quality fabric, lays nicely and fits true to size. I would highly recommend this dress for a black tie event.

The dress was fabulous! It fit great and was very comfortable.

I always wear a 6 and took an 8 in this so runs a bit small. The length was perfect for a shorter heel. I don't think you could wear a very high heel with the standard length.

The dress was stunning! I really loved it. It was so elegant!

It fit true to size and is beautiful. I got the R and it was still a little long, touched the floor, so make sure you try it on with some good heels! It was such an elegant dress and very flattering, I would definitely rent again. I recommend it! It has a thick material which is nice.

Great dress

I love the cut of this dress and the feel. It hid what I wanted to hide and accentuated what I wanted to show. The red in the same size was a bit tighter. Would rent again for a wedding in the cooler months this was just too hot for my July NYC wedding with Spanx.

Amazing dress Amazing night!

I quickly had this dress sent overnight when the other dresses I ordered were short...SO GLAD I DID! This dress was so amazing and comfortable. I wore the 6L with 3" heels and it was too long - had to hold it up a bit but it didn't bother me much because I felt so rockstar glamorous and sexy. The man LOVED it! Compliments all night. The fabric has stretch so I could have probably gotten the 4 but the 6 gave me freedom to move and eat and dance so comfortably! Also did not have to wear a bra and was free of having to adjust. Will definitely rent this dress again! Perfect black tie glam! Thanks RTR!

Wore to a wedding. The dress fit like a glove! Would definitely recommend this dress to women that are curvy but also want to look classy. My bra size is a 34DDD and I had no side cleavage showing at all. Definitely need the strapless bra for this gown or if u r comfortable no bra at all. Super comfortable dress! Would definitely rent it again!

Stunning Dress

Perfect dress for a Black Tie optional wedding. It hid my post baby belly (with some help from spanx) and allowed me to wear flats. I am 5'8 and the regular fit perfectly for flat sandals. No bra needed!

This dress was perfection!

This dress was perfect for the wedding I attended. I paired it with heels that were about 3in since I didn't want to be too tall and the dress didn't drag at all. Overall it was very comfortable and I got so many compliments on how "classic" the dress was on me.

Classic Black-Tie Gown

The dress runs large and long, so definitely plan on wearing tall heels and ordering down. I wore ~2" heels and the dress dragged about an inch on the ground. Despite the fact that I couldn't fill out the dress, it still looked great in photos; the dress is tapered nicely to give you good shape. The dress was very comfortable all night long, even after 8 hours of wear. Definitely recommend wearing a crystal necklace to add a little flavor to the dress. Despite the sizing issues, it was a beautiful dress that I would wear again (with taller heels!).

The glitz and glamour of a DC black tie wedding.

The fit was great, but I am 5'3" and the R was definitely long. I had to choose between a dress that was too long, or the 2P that didn't fit in other places. Amazing dress though, I had compliments all night. Thanks!

Perfect for a wedding of Black Tie Affair

The fit is amazing. If you have a curvy figure this dress with definitely accentuate them in the most flattering way. If you have more of a straight and narrow figure the fit is tight so you would still get the same affect and it may even make you look like you have more of a figure since the fabric really hugs close. I don't really think I have a booty, but in this dress I did. I have really large boobs and I was able to go bra-less. People were coming up to me all night asking what kind of a bra I was wearing because the dress cut makes it hard to wear one. They were shocked by my response, which says a lot about the dress! I owe it all to you guys :) Definitely renting again for the next wedding.

I panicked when the first dress I ordered was unavailable, however the stylists were so helpful!

I LOVED this dress. I wore it to a black tie wedding in Chicago. I received so many compliments. I was incredibly comfortable in the dress and I could have worn it without a bra but I did choose to wear a stick on bra. It was so flattering. I wish I could own this dress now.

I got so so many compliments on the dress! I felt fabulous!

The fit was perfect! Fit like a glove! Unfortunately, I am only 5'1" so it was extremely long on me. I tried to tape the bottom so it wouldn't drag but by the end of the night I took the tape off and let it go. Still had an amazing time!

Very Classy gown

I ordered the size 10R and 12R - they were both too short. I went with the 12R even though the top was a bit loose and wore really low heels. I wish I would have ordered a 10L, I think that would have fit perfectly.

The dress was simple but stunning

I ordered what was available which was the 10R and the 12L. I ended up going with the 12L vs. the 10R because the 10R was a little too short. The L was a bit long so I wore 4inch heels and it was the perfect length. I went with the 12 v.s the 10 because the 10 was a bit too tight in the rib area. The 12 fit like a glove. The perfect hold for someone with a larger chest, I did not have to worry about a bra.

This dress is very well made!

A little trouble with the delivery and this was my back up dress (my first option never arrived due to it be damaged) but it worked out. I'm 5'4 and normally wear a size xs/2 - the 2 fit perfectly. I had to use the temporary hem tape because it was a bit too long even with very high heels. The tape worked fine with this dress so it wasn't a problem. It is a heavy material which I liked because it was smooth and laid nicely. Definitely felt like I was wearing a $600 dress. I'll rent this again! I did wear the adhesive bra with this - i know some reviews said they didn't wear a bra but I wanted more lift. It worked great with this dress. Didn't need a necklace.

A great evening in a great gown

I normally wear a size 8 in dresses and ordered the size 8. The next size up was not available, but luckily the 8 fit like a glove. I did wear spanx as to camaflouge any bludges that showed. My only issue was that the dress would twist (so that the zipper would be on the side and not my back) when I danceed. This could have been from the spanx making it slippery against the lining, however it was annoying. I could have worn it w/out the spanx, but I chose not to. The 10 may have fit better in the mid area, but would have been too big in the chest and shoulders. All in all a great a dress and worth it even with the spanx.

Simple, elegant, got so many compliments!

This dress was the perfect choice for a formal attire wedding. The material is good quality and is fitted without showing EVERY imperfection. I wore a strapless bra and spanx and was comfortable dancing the night away! I usually wear a 10-12R in dresses, but I got a 12L and 14R based on other people's reviews. I ended up wearing the 14R because it gave me a little more room to breathe, although it was a little loose up top, it still looked great! In the end, I was glad I wore the larger size. I wore my hair to one side, dangly gold earrings and tan strappy heels with a black satin clutch.

Many compliments

I LOVED this dress! I wish I had a reason to wear it more. I wore it to a black tie wedding. I received many compliments. It was comfortable but so nice and flattering. It actually gives you that nice hourglass figure. I'm 5'8" and I got the long and wore it with about 3.5 inch heels and it was perfect. I did wear spanks with it because I'm self conscious of my belly but the dress is very smoothing on its own. I also got the Ben Amun peacock earring to wear with it and the whole outfit was great. Highly recommend! I would suggest an updo with it though to show off the neckline and in case you're wondering it is racerback so you need a strapless bra.

Absolutely beautiful dress, perfect for a black tie wedding!!

I wore this to a black tie wedding in DC and it was perfect. I am usually between an 8 and a 10 and ended up going with the 10 because it was more comfortable and fit better in the bust. But it was super comfortable and I got compliments all night. The only warning is that it was MUCH shorter than I expected. I'm 5'6 and you could see my feet when I was barefoot, so I had to go out and get lower heels. So if you are 5'7 or taller, I would suggest getting the long and it will look great with normal heels.

fit well, flattering

This dress is really simple, but pretty. It's a thicker material so I felt like it made the 'clingyness' more flattering. I am only 5'2, and even with 4'' heels it was a tad long for me. Also, as others reviewed mentioned it is a heavy material. Definitely would not wear this for a summer event -- I wore this for a November wedding in NYC and it was still kind of warm. I ordered the 10/12, ended up wearing the 12 as the 10 fit but it was tighter than I felt comfortable in. I didn't wear a bra and the coverage was fine - I am a 36DD.

Love love love! This dress was so comfortable and beautiful and I highly recommend it.

I feel like this dress would work well with any shape. Beware, there is a small train at the back so you can easily step on that. I would wear it again in a heartbeat.
