I wore this dress for my organization's fund raising event. I had nothing but compliments from my colleagues. I'm short, so the dress was lower on me than the picture. It still looked great.

Great Dress! Would rent again.
Flattering dress and comfortable. I am petite and the length/fitting was fine. I wore it to a "casual cocktail" fund raiser and felt it was perfect. The zipper was difficult as others indicated. However, it is such a great dress, I would rent it again.

Perfect Party Dress
The dress was perfect for the event I was going to . I ordered a size 6 and 8. I wore the 6 and the fit was excellent. All the comments about the zipper were TRUE! The zipper on both dresses were awful. The zipper on the 8 broke even though the dress was large on me. Aside from that, the dress is beautiful and the side ruching is great to hide any "flaws". The shoulder detail was simple but very pretty and was enough sparkle so no need for a necklace. I would love to rent again if the zippers could be fixed.

The gems on the shoulder really stand out when paired with silver earrings. It made me not require a necklace :P
So I got this dress as a backup style to my first choice. Well worth it. I got it in a 10 and a 12, in case it was too big (ha ha). The 12 fit fine; it was roomy, but I didn't want a tight size 10 anyway (big midsection). It was really nice, and I enjoyed it! :) :) :)

This dress hid the tummy area well with the way it draped. It was perfect in everyway.
It was a great dress for office Christmas party. The legnth wasnt too short. I dressed this up with some silver & rhinestone strappy heels. Got compliments all night. Would highly reccomend.

LOVED IT! <3
The model is a few inches taller than me but I wanted the dress to fit closer to my knee line. It fit awesome! It was very comfortable and elegant. I felt great wearing it! I rented the 10 but also rented an 8 (for the extra $25) and the 8 was a perfect fit. This website is a blessing (especially in clutch situations!) THANKS! ;)

I felt like a million bucks. A basic black with some style.
I got a lot of compliments in this dress. The fabric feels exquisite. I did wear a girdle underneath, that went from the ribs to the thighs because even though there are gathers in the fabric, I felt more comfortable with it. I'm 5'6" and the length was just above my knees.

Dress fits well, but zipper is a problem
Dress is comfortable and fits well, but zipper does not open all the way, and closing it is also a problem.

True to fit, just be careful about the zipper. Since the fabric is bunched around it it can be difficult to zip on your own

Stunning and chic LBD
I rented this dress for a formal charity event and it was perfect. Subtle off-the-shoulder style, well-placed jeweled broach -- these little touches make it much more than a basic black dress. Runs a little small, so size up.

I loved knowing I had a great dress and didn't have to go to a bunch of stores to find it!
Loved the dress. Perfect for this occasion. I did think it was a little long for me (I'm 5'1") but worked out okay. Very convenient as we had to travel to Chicago for this wedding and there was a POBox right outside the hotel for the return!

This dress has been on my wishlist for a while. I was so glad to have the opportunity to wear it. The material is great, a little stretchy. I did not need spanx underneath. The length was also perfect for me. Another successful RTR!!

Cute dress. I wish I ordered the right size.
I ended up returning this dress because it didn't fit. I gained 15 pounds this past year and have been wearing a size10 lately, but for some reason this dress didn't fit. Oh well, next time I'll get the next size up.

This was my back-up dress. It was sophisticated, comfortable and true to size.
The side zip with the ruching is a little tricky and one of the beads arrived with loose threads and was hanging off (easily fixable though). The dress fit perfectly and was extremely comfortable with nice quality fabric. The beading at the shoulder was a nice detail. For me, I just liked my first choice better but this would be an excellent versatile formal or date dress.

The fit was great. I do think the shoulder area was a wee bit stretched, but it still looked and felt great. It was true to size and I felt sex-ay!!!!! Thanks RTC! I am now a fan and WILL use you again!

Classic... and, sexy!
Runs small - I sucked it in all night. Rent a size up, and then another size up - especially if you're sitting down to dinner as there's not much give. The size 0 arrived in pristine condition, not the 2. I was disappointed that there's a bead or two missing and the beads are discolored on the 2. The hem fell below the dress - that will need to be fixed. I'm also disappointed that I wasn't credited for that. Nevertheless, lots of compliments! An amazing dress.

Great for a professional event!
Hi was feeling a little bloated and self conscious before I put on this dress, but once I had it on—I felt great! The fabric is very forgiving and feels good. It fits very true to size and the length is appropriate for professional events, even for someone taller.

Gorgeous and flattering!
I rented this dress for a Carneval event in February. The fit was so flattering and the little jeweled detail at the top was just enough and not overly sparkly. The off the shoulder style required a strapless bra, but I wore spanx and it created perfect and clean lines. A great rental for a night on the town, NYE or even a wedding. I will definitely be renting this dress again :)

This dress is gorgeous and comfortable! I received so many compliments throughout the night!
This dress is the perfect combination of classy and sexy. The dress fell slightly above my knees and I was completely covered up, which was appropriate for the company holiday party I attended, but the exposed should and curve hugging sides brought out just the right amount of sexy. I'm large chested and the dress made the girls look amazing. Since I'm a little curvier, I was a little nervous about what size to order. The size 8 fit me just fine, but I went with the size 10 as it hid my belly a little better. Not only did the dress look good, but it was comfortable! I was front and center of a Gangnam Style flash mob and I had no trouble dancing at all.

The dress is as gorgeous in person as it is on the website. Worn with a pair of spanx, it fits like a glove- not too tight, not too loose.

Tried it on and never wore it. Found it to be extremely unflattering for a short girl.
The dress was too long and too tight in all of the wrong areas. If you are tall, I think it would look much better.

Loved it but it was missing stones and had a broken zipper
The dress was great and looked amazing, which I was shocked that I liked it so much. Unfortunately, the dress was needing some repairs, and I wasn't able to wear it. Good thing it was just my back up dress, because the zipper was broken and the embellishments on the shoulder were missing several stones.

This was my first dress I rented from RTR and I was so happy with the entire process. My dress came in on time and was nicely packaged. I wore the dress to a black tie event, and I could not have been happier with the dress. I am normally between a size 0/2 but after looking at the sizing chart I ordered a 2 and 4. The 2 ended up fitting me like a glove, and the dress was so comfortable to wear. I love the off the shoulder and then the jeweled embellishment on the other shoulder. The length was perfect for the event and I think that I looked better in the dress than the model! I will be renting future dresses from RTR!

Adored this dress. I'm a bit hippy, so I went for the "size-up" order and it was fantastic. The fit of the bodice is genius; very flattering to a larger chest. The ruching at the waist an elegant way to disguise any bumps and unevenness in that area.

Loved it! I wore this to a corporate function where I wanted to look chic and stylish, without worrying about showing too much skin. This was PERFECT! I'm usually between a 2 and a 4, and I wore the 4. Bonus: the liner is silky enough to keep the ruching moving around, rather than settling in unflattering clumps. I know this sounds minor, but I'm usually leary of jersey with ruching for this reason!

I'm a super-standard size 10 and this fit like a glove -- although if you're wearing it to a work event, maybe size up so it's a bit less closely fitted. In any case, really flattering and comfortable, although slightly shorter than I normally go.

Ordering was a breeze. My engagement pictures turned out amazing.
The fit was exactly how I expected. The stretch of the material is great, although the layers are a bit heavy for a summer day. I am a petite pear by definition, but the black was very slimming. It hit around the knee.

This dress made me feel amazing! I even did a little dance in front of the mirror when I had it on. (My stepmom asked if I could buy it, in fact.) Loved the fabric - which would take an army to wrinkle - and the rouching was slenderizing. Might have to rent again!
