Love going to the store to try on the dresses. Also perfect to find last minute accessories!
I'm very hourglass so the stretch in this dress was fantastic and super flattering. I'm pretty busty, so finding a good fit is sometimes difficult...but again the stretch in the dress made it fit perfectly (without feeling smashed or overflowing). It's not very structured, so I was worried about eating/drinking too much...but the ruching and the shiny lining hide the imperfections.

Felt Confident!
Great fit, comfortable as there was some stretch to it. It fit every curve of my body. Only con is because I am short (5'2) the dress is long. I'm a 36C and didn't need to wear a bra with this which was nice. If you're look for a black dress with a little something extra this is definitely one in would go with. #holidayparty #companydinner #blackdress

My friend and I admired each other's rtr dresses!
A little on the big size, ruching super flattering, easy to dance in and the top with the sparkles made it special. I got many compliments, including from a friend who was wearing a great rtr Nicole Miller. We thought no one else knew how great a deal it was!!

Sexy black dress, hot heels and a statement purse made me the talk of the room:)
The dress was gorgeous! It was a little long but I am also very short so I think that is my specific problem. I got so many complements, I would definitely recommend it!

I ended up not wearing this dress, it was FAR too long on me
This dress was super long, I am 5'4" and it came down to upper/mid-calf on me. Not what I expected. The fit was nice and it would have been nice if I was going to a formal dinner or something, but it was not the party dress I imagined.

Great dress! Form fitting and flattering for a petite or hourglass figure.
5'0" 146lbs 34D when I rented this dress. Ordered an 8 and a 10. The 10 definitely fit better when I was 146lbs. I would order an 8 now that I am 10lbs down.

Very pretty
I like the dress over all. 2 things i wish were better. The length...i was at a bachelorette party and wished it was shorter. i am 5'5" and it hit just above my knee. the center rouching...it kind of seperated to where it gave me a "pooch" in pics, if that makes sense.

cute, but not on me
I'm normally a 10/12, so I got the 12 just to be safe. While the material was VERY stretchy, the zipper was impossible to zip (even to unzip when trying to on). Once I put it on and began to attempt the zipping process I wasn't thrilled with the way the black mesh sat -it almost looked like you could see through the nude material underneath to my 'black panties' but it was really just the way the mesh overlay sat. With the warmer weather and the activities planned for my friend's bachelorette, It just wasn't the dress for me and I ended up wearing the second dress I ordered. I'd recommend this to someone with more of a straighter, athletic build.

Hot not trashy!
Very sexy dress. Comfortable.. Usually I am a size 4 but this dress was too small in 4. Possibly the fit or Dry cleaned 1 too many times. I'm 5'4" and size 6 was slightly long (ended a t bottom of knee). but totally wearable. Would rent it again.

Not your average simple black dress. Has a touch of interesting....
I would buy this dress to have as a black dress I could add into rotation every other year or so. I think its runs true to size, it stretches so that is good. I included the day and night shot so you could see almost how it transforms from solid color to the 2 colors. It was a good length, not too short. I would def recommend it.

Love this dress!
Rented this dress for a girls weekend in Vegas and wore it to a concert. I'm 5'2", 119 lbs, 32D, 25 inch waist, 35 inch hips and the 2 was perfect (I usually wear a 0). I was sad to send this one back. Would definitely rent again :-)

Great Spin on LBD
The white lining under the sheer black makes for a unique dress. I was a little worried that the beading on the top would be cheesy/cheap looking but it was subtle and added some good sparkle. I had to have two friends zip me into the dress but once I was in it fit and felt perfect. I danced for hours! :) Perfect Vegas dress! When I saw pics from the night I noticed my chest was popping out the top a bit - but I didnt feel or notice it that night. A size up might have prevented that from happening but it would have been too big everywhere else I think. My husband didn't complain! ;)

Very Slimming
I usually wear an 8, but I had to have the 10. Honestly, I probably needed the 12. It was very tight and the boning in the 10 didn't lay well on me, but it photographed well. The material is very forgiving and it's stretchy, so that made it kinda comfy. I really loved it, but wish I had the 12 to try on considering it was so small.

Absolutely loved this dress and my bangles! Everything came right on time- excited to rent again!
This was my first time renting from RTR and I can't wait to rent again! I absolutely loved this dress- it fit me like a glove! The bangles were the perfect accessory- they were gorgeous and so much fun! I'm usually a size 4 in dresses so I rented the 4 and the 6- thank god I did because I ended up wearing the 6. I would recommend renting a size up bc boutique sizes do run a size smaller. This dress was sexy without being too short or revealing- very flattering.

Fun and Reliable!
This dress is beautiful and loved the way it hugged my body. The only bad thing I can say about the dress is that it runs small. I had a hard time with the zipper and getting it to close. I am more on the busty side so that could be a factor to why I had a hard time zipping the dress. but once I got it on it looked amazing. I got so many compliments on it. Gorgeous dress!!

Nice dress, but nothing to write home about.
I'm usually a size four, but I had to go up a size b/c I thought it ran small in the waist, hip, thigh area. The six fit much better overall, but then was roomy up top (I'm a 34B). Overall, this dress did the job, but it's not my favorite. Also, the dress was a little worn out... the ruching was starting to come a little loose.

Great party dress!!!
I rented this dress for NYE and received lots of compliments. Im 5'3 and the dress was a little long but it worked. The style of the dress made me look a little bigger in certain areas but overall I was quite impressed with the experience. Thank you RTR!!

This dress is hot!
I am in between a size 8 and 10. Size 10 wasn't available. The 8 fit but hugged every curve and was really tight...i have a big butt and wider hips. I am 5'8 and i loved the length. I didnt end up wearing this bc i fell in love with my back up dress. It was much more comfortable and flattering. The best thing i did when deciding between the 2 was taking a pic in each. when a flash hits this dress, it looks completely different. i think if i would have got the 10, it would have been a winner. its hot!

Very vampy!
I received so many compliments when I wore this dress. The details at the top of the bust were gorgeous and I loved the metallic under-layer. Material was very substantial and slimming. I have a large bust (34G) and I had to go for the larger of the 2 sizes because of it. Definitely a great dress for an hourglass shape.

Perfect. Loved it. .
I wore this to a Black & White wedding. I was thrilled because I was the only one who wore a dress that was both colors. I just had my 4th child, so it hugged in all the right places. The 6 was not available so I oplted for the 8. It shifted slightly & was a little too long for me, so I hemmed with some double faced tape. Great dress, rent it!!! Does run small - so go a size up!

I absolutely loved this dress! Super comfortable and flattering. I recommend!
This dress was a great fit, and super comfortable! I originally ordered an 8 but after re-reading the reviews decided to go a size up and was able to make the switch easily chatting with an online chat agent. The 8 probably would've fit, but I wanted to be safe given it was so fitted. The 10 was a tiny bit big up top, but definitely not a deal breaker. A lot of the reviews suggested wearing Spanx, but they are just too uncomfortable for me so I went without. I felt that the design of the dress and the ruching covered up what it needed to. I got a ton of compliments from people and the dress photographs well. I highly recommend for a formal event or wedding!

Flattering and hugs all the right places
This dress is very flattering but does not have any stretch to it. I can usually get away with wearing a 6 but I am glad that I ordered a size up for this one. I got many compliments on how this hugged my curves. LOVED THIS DRESS

My fiance kept telling me how gorgeous I looked the whole night!
This was my first time renting from RTR. I wore this dress to the Nutcracker, along with the Nicole Miller Southern Plantation Earrings, and I must say that this dress is fabulous! My fiance loved it on me and kept telling me how I was the most beautiful woman at the theater! The dress itself is GORGEOUS. Very stretchy material. I ordered sizes 2 and 4, with the 2 fitting much better than the 4. I feel like I could have squeezed myself into the 0 though--I found myself constantly pulling up the dress throughout the night, and I felt like the bottom half of the dress could have been more snug. The dress also came to the middle of my knee, which for my height, well, it could have been a little shorter. It still looked great though! For reference, I am 5' 2", 32C, with a 26" waist and 36" in the hips.

My first RTR experience and it was fun from beginning to end! Definetly a returning customer!
Wore the dress for my husbands holiday work party. Had some trouble with the zippers once the dresses were on (tried both sizes wondering if it was just too tight) but ended up just zipping it up before and wiggled in since the material had some give! I did wear spanx for a more seamless look and to help hide some baby bump leftover :) I kept my jewelry pretty simple as I felt the dress was "jewelry" enough. The dress was super comfortable for dancing too! I got a bunch of compliments and really felt beautiful (and smart for trying RTR)! My sister and another friend that went to the party also wore RTR dresses and they each looked fabulous as well. My first RTR experience was so fun from the beginning - looking for a dress, to end - the ease of return! I will definetly be using RTR again !

I didn't wear it.
I didn't wear this dress because the zipper did not lay flat enough against my back so I wasn't a fan, however, luckily I also ordered another dress at the same time. My advice, if you have a chance to order a backup for $25, it is well worth it!!

Fun dress!
This was my first rental from the website. It arrived exactly on time. I am thankful for ordering two sizes as I needed the larger size. This dress is super tight - I would recommend Spanx for even a size zero to keep the curves nice and flattering. I wore this with a really fun pair of black heels and Betsey Johnson earrings. Will definitely rent again!
