It was a great dress! So many compliments on it! Very comfortable and wasn't stiff at all!
the length was great and worked perfectly with the heals I had that were not super high.

For an indie movie premiere
This dress fit well and I would say is true to size. I'm usually an athletic size 8 but I've gained a few pounds - the size 8 fit nice and snug but not too tight - however I opted to wear the size 10 because it was looser around the tummy area and also I have kind of a big butt (proportional to my body) so the bigger one minimized the risk of the back not falling/laying flat against me

This dress was an absolute dream to wear!
The fit is very true to size; I am 5'8 and really wanted to order the 0 Long but it was unavailable for the dates I requested so I had to settle for the 0 Regular and the length was perfect! I even wore 3 inch heels with it and it still wasn't too short. It was not tight at all and was so comfortable to wear and dance in all night. I wore it to my sorority formal and cannot begin to count how many compliments I received! If you're even remotely considering renting this dress, DO IT! I truly cannot say enough good things about it!

Amazing Dress!
Loved this dress! Does run a bit small (normally wear a 4, wore a 6). Was really comfortable, has the perfect keyhole cutout and slit up the front. Would definitely order again!

Chic and comfortable all night!
I think this dress runs a little on the small side (but I have a huge ribcage and broad shoulders, so bear that in mind!) since I usually wear an 8 or sometimes a 10 in BCBG. That said, this fit beautifully except for being too large in the hips/thighs. but since it was black, I didn't find it noticeable. LOVED the cut - super flattering. The slit up the front was just beautiful (and not too high). I didn't need to wear a bra or spanx. Very comfortable and very fun to dance in! I'm slightly under 5'7 and went with a long with 3 1/2" heels. I rarely do black dresses, but this one stood out! Paired it with the Lizzie Fortunato Black Parrot earrings.

Amazing dress!
Perfect for hourglass shapes, and surprisingly, wasn't too tight across my chest (I'm a 34E). It's so comfortable and the cut-outs make it stand out from a sea of other basic long black formal gowns. I got so many compliments! Also, get the long if you're taller (I'm 5'8") and if you're wearing heels. The length ended up being perfect with a shorter 3" pump.

Loved this dress! Sexy but classy, and very flattering! I was torn between tucking this strap in to make it strapless, or not. I had a necklace I wanted to wear so I ended up tucking it in and it gave me no problems at all!

I wore this to my medical school gala! It was such a comfortable dress to dance the night away!
It runs true to size. I'm normally a 2P and RTR didn't have my size, but they still sent the 4R. The other dress ended up not working out and I wore this dress instead! It was a little long for me since it was a 4, but I was able to make some last minute adjustments and it ended up being a good fit!

Great night! The dress was perfect for the occassion.
I loved this dress. It was beautiful, flattering, and true to size EXCEPT in the armpit area. If you have slightly larger boobs, it may cause trouble on the top and be a little tight. Also, the wiring in the abdominal area was a little uncomfortable, but bearable. Overall, I loved it and wished I could buy it to wear to the next event.

So many compliments!
I ordered the 0 and got a backup size as a 2. I went with the 0 even though it was a little snug around my ribcage. The overall fit was great! I wore it to a Marine Corps Ball and it was the perfect dress for the formal affair, but yet still fun!

Beautiful, black tie wedding
I can not tell you how many compliments I got on this dress!!! This was my first RTR experience and it was perfect. I wore a black pashmina scarf as a shawl during the ceremony and took it off for the reception. It was perfect for this black tie wedding! Length was great with 3 inch heels! I am 32DD, 5' 4", 123 lbs and it was a perfect gown. You will not regret renting this!

I wore this for a formal event at my university and the dress was a hit!
I love the classic feel of this dress but the one shoulder, midriff cutout, and high slit add the extra oomph to make the dress sexy and unique. I recieved a lot of compliments this night! I wore the 6L and it was perfect for my medium height with 4 inch heels. I will definitely be ordering from RTR again!

Med School Formal
I am usually an 8 in dresses and after reading the reviews that this dress ran small, I ordered the 8 and the 10. I ended up wearing the 8 because the material bunched around the stomach and there was a gape in the chest under the arms with the 10, but the 8 was slightly small. Besides the weird sizing, I loved wearing this dress and got so many compliments!

I LOVED this dress. Everyone complimented me all night long at my sorority presentation !
I ordered the 2R and 4R. I usually wear a two but never a zero so I usually order the size up. When I got them and tried it on I quickly realized I regretted looking further into their petite sizes. It was about 5 inches too long on me and I had to go out to the mall and buy 7 inch pumps. If you are on the shorter side (up until 5'4), I would definitely recommend a petite size simply for height reasons. Otherwise, the 2R dress was BEAUTIFUL and fit like a glove. The slit and the cut out make it sexy yet classy. I LOVED it. :)

Perfect dress for a formal holiday party
Being very short (4'11) it's often difficult to find a long dress to wear unless I have it altered. This bcbg petite length was perfect! I also wore 4 in heels which helped with the length of the dress. The dress does run a little tight in the torso, I would definitely suggest ordering a second size up to have as a backup. I rented both the 0 and 2. The 0 fit great and is the size I wore however, it started to become uncomfortable as the night went on.

This dress saved the day!
This was a replacement dress and got to me a few hours before my event. I was so nervous about this dress but it ended up being perfect! I ordered this because so many different body types looked good in this and it was no different for me. I'm 5'9 and about 160lbs and the 10L was perfect. It was about an inch off the floor and I was wearing 4 in heels. If you're a tall girl and plan on wearing heels, I would definitely get a long. I wore a basic strapless bra and had not issues with the cut out. I didn't want to send this dress back! After a minor meltdown over the first dress, this dress saved the day.

I ordered a size up. I went with the normal size. Also, my bust size is actually a 34D. It appears to be listed incorrectly below, as well as my height, which is 5'4, not 5'6.

Love this dress, looks better on an in person
For reference I am 5'4", 130 lbs and a 34C hourglass. I rented this dress in a 6R and it was gorgeous. I ended up returning it for the event, but actually think I'm re-ordering it because I had second thoughts about it. The pictures on the model do not do this dress justice, it fits well and is elegant yet sexy. The top was a slightly too large in the 6R, but given my figure, I don't think a 4R would fit as nicely in the butt/thigh area. If you are taller than 5'6" and plan on wearing higher than 3" heels I would recommend getting a long.

Wore at formal anniversary party
I ordered a 2 and 4 because reviews said ran a little tight. I never ended up trying on 4 because the 2 fit absolutely perfectly. Wore heels with dress and was perfect length. One of the most elegant dresses I have rented from RTR. Material was very comfy and able to match so much with dress. Highly recommend for event!

Comfortable Girls!
I originally wanted to wear the 4R, and I could have, but I wore the 6L instead. I'm sure glad I chose the larger size because I was bloated and stuffing my face all night! The material was a bit stretchy so I felt the 4R ran a bit small to begin with. I elected to not wear a bra, but I definitely could have fit that bugger in there if I wanted to due to the stretchiness. It was a perfect dress for a formal wedding in The Loop of Chicago; simply beautiful, elegant, and COMFORTABLE. Order it girls! You won't regret it. Major plus : I felt like the dress made me look skinny! So, if that's something you look for in a dress (especially when you're at wedding and want to look hot) then definitely rent this dress. Just some specs on my body: Usual Size: 4, Size Worn: 6L, Height: 5'7, Weight: 130lbs, Bust: 32DD

Very flattering!
I wore this to a med school formal. Great fabric and fit, I got tons of compliments. Unfortunately, there were no petites left and I had to get a regular which was WAY too long. I ended up using fabric tape along the bottom to shorten the dress and it turned out fine. It is a little tight in the bust area so I went up a size.

Classy with a twist!
This dress was amazing. I am short and was worried it would be too long, but this fit me just right! It helps that there is a slit in the front. This made it easier to walk. I am 5'4" and wore 3.5 inch heels and it was perfect. I received tons of compliments on this dress. The cut-out in the dress is a nice surprise.

I loved this dress!
I wore this dress to a black tie event for work and it was great! I'm 5'6" and ~125lbs & the 4R fit well. The only thing that could've been better was the length. It ended up being a little short with my heels, which were about 3-4". Definitely would recommend this dress!

I have very broad shoulders and rib cage, definitely needed to size up to accommodate. It's truly a beautiful dress - understated glamour! Slit is just the right length.

The material was so comfortable and I received SO many compliments on this dress!
I'm 5'10 so it was just a little short with 3 inch heels, maybe half an inch off the floor. I was expecting the dress to be super stiff looking at the pictures but the fabric actually had a little stretch to it, making it super comfortable and easy to walk/dance in! The cutout on top also made it easy to wear a strapless bra too.

Loved this dress!
Wore this dress to a black tie optional wedding and received so many compliments. Fits true to size, I could have worn either the 6 or 8 but went with the 6. It felt a little tight around the waist when I sat down but other than that was great! Would definitely rent again.
