I'm 5'10 without heels so it was a relief that the dress was long enough. It was sexy but really comfortable. Highly recommended

Size worn: 6R

I'm usually a 4 but got the 6 just in case. I ended up wearing the 6 and it fit like a glove. There is no stretch in this dress. The length was also perfect with a small heel- I'm about 5'7"

BOW CHICKA BOW WOW!

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This was probably my favorite dress I've ever rented from here. It was super elegant and sexy! I felt like someone out of a James Bond movie. The only small issue was it was about 1/2" too long, so I sometimes stepped on it while dancing.

Love this dress!! I rented it in a 2R and a 4R, and ended up going with the 4R. If fit perfectly and has an adjustable strap under the shoulder, which was a great feature. If you're short (like me), 3-4 inch heels will be the perfect height. I received compliments all night long, and would definitely rent this dress again!

Everyone absolutely loved the dress! I received a plethora of compliments, and felt glamorous!

Size worn: 8L
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I ordered an 8L and 10L after reading that it runs a bit small. Usually, I wear dresses size 6 or 8. However, the 8L was a little too big, and gathered around the bust and waist - so a 6L would have been preferred. Nonetheless, the dress fits super well, is incredibly comfortable, and allows a lot of movement for dancing! You will love it! If it ends up a little big, use some fashion tape to hold the strap up. I promise, you won't regret this one!

This dress was absolutely stunning. At first I was really concerned that I couldn't get the 0R, i had to get the 2R and 4R and the 2 fit like a glove! I wore about 3-4 inch heels and they were perfect! This dress made you feel beautiful and I was in love with everything about it! I would so definitely buy this if I could!

Size worn: 8L
Rented for: Wedding
I ordered both a 6L and an 8L. I would have worn the 6 but the upper half of the dress was a little too tight. The 8 fit perfectly and was a great length for me. I am 5'5 and wore 4 1/2 inch heels and the dress still hit the floor. It was both comfortable and sexy! Got compliments all night long!!

Size worn: 10L
Rented for: Formal Affair
I loved this dress and it was a very comfortable material. I ordered an 8 and 10 long, while both fit I found the 10 to be more comfortable. I am 5'7"and I long was defiantly a must! I got compliments on it all night long. I'm happy it's what I chose for my first rental experience.

Absolutely fell in love with this dress and the way it made me feel!

Size worn: 8L
Rented for: Formal Affair
After reading a lot of the reviews I'm really glad I ordered a size up for my extra dress because for girls who are larger up top you definitely need the bigger size! I am normally a 6 but I couldn't come close to zipping it up over my chest (I am a 34D). The 8 fit perfectly and was a lot more comfortable. The cut out and subtle slit add some sassiness and sexiness to a very simple black dress. I received compliments on it all night and I felt like 1 million bucks! I'm sad to send this dress back, wish I could keep it!

If you're looking for a classy and simple dress...this is it!

Size worn: 2R
Rented for: Formal Affair
Fits beautifully! The slit is in the center of the dress, which is a little different but it is very flattering. The length was perfect, I wore the regular length with decent sized heels (nude Steve Maddens). I wore turquoise accents with this dress and it was exactly what I wanted-classy and simple!

Size worn: 8R
Rented for: Party
I normally wear an 8/10 depending on the fit in the hips, and the 8 fit perfectly! Loved the cut out, took the dress up a few notches! Got compliments all night! Make sure to wear heels to avoid dragging the ground - it's a long dress, but nothing excessive

Felt like a Bond girl

Size worn: 0R
Rented for: Formal Affair
Since it was my first time using RTR, I didn't know for sure how the fit would work out but the it was perfect and very flattering for even the smallest of petite frames. I'm pretty short (5'0") but with 4.5" heels it worked fine. There is an adjustable strap in the one shoulder for a little extra security. The cutout and slit are both tasteful and appropriate, and the slit goes right up the center of the dress unlike most. Highly recommend for someone going for an edgy yet sophisticated look!

The length was perfect with heels, even though I'm only 5'2". That being said, if you're over 5'6" I would recommend ordering it in "long."

This was my first experience using RTR, and I'm so glad I did. My order even arrived early!

Size worn: 10L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wore this dress to a formal gala event and received compliments on it all night long. I'm 5'9 1/2" and figured the dress would be too short or too tight, but the 10L worked perfectly. It actually left me with a little bit of wiggle room in the bust area which was nice for dancing, but wasn't so loose that it was falling down. I wore 3 1/2 inch heels and this ended up working out well. I didn't feel like I was going to trip and fall over the gown throughout the night. Would recommend this dress for any formal event!

Size worn: 8L
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was perfect. I was so nervous when I first ordered cause this dress was tighter than my usual style. This is my second time ordering from RTR and I will always use them for formal events. I suggest ordering one size up because I thought I was a 6 but I ended up wearing the 8 because it fit perfectly! I am 5'7 and wore 4 inch heels so the long was the perfect length. The slit is a little more centered than I thought but it ended up looking amazing. This dress made me feel awesome!! Did not want to return it after prom!

This dress for perfectly! It was very comfortable to walk around in all night and the slit was awesome! But, the zipper in the back is extremely hard to maneuver. For some reason the zipper just gets hard to pull

I rented a 2 and 4 but I ended up wearing the 4 so I would be able to dance comfortably. I was very comfortable all night and the length was perfect with my high tops. I could easily wear a strapless bra which was very nice. I also got tons of compliments all night because of the uniqueness of the dress!

Perfect dress for prom

Size worn: 4R
Rented for: Formal Affair
I am usually between a size 2 and 4, but I ended up wearing the 4. It fit perfectly and was so flattering. I would suggest this for people with smaller hips and chests, as the dress isn't very stretchy. I wore 4 inch heels and the dress was the perfect length (I'm 5'6"). Overall, perfect dress for my senior prom.

The material doesn't stretch very much but was still comfortable. I wore this dress with 4 inch heels and it was perfect! Would definitely recommend renting a "long" if you are over 5'6" and planning to wear heels. My dress even came a day early! Service was amazing, will definitely be renting again.

I got a 6 and an 8. I am usually a 6, however reviews said it ran small. I am 5'3 and with four inch heels the 6 dress was perfect. While it ran tight in the bust area, it got more comfy throughout the night. It was so hard to send this dress back because I was obsessed, RENT IT!

Size worn: 6L
Rented for: Formal Affair
I LOVED this dress! I received so many compliments. The slit was so fun, and I felt so sexy and glamorous. It fit me like a glove, but I did have to go up one size. I recommended renting your size and one size up. If you're 5'6" and above I definitely recommend going a size up if you're planning on wearing heels. I'm 5'7" and wore 3in heels and the 6L was the perfect length.

This dress was perfect for a black tie affair. I had to wear the six as the four was unavailable the date I needed it and I do wish the lower half fit more snugly around my hips but the six fit perfectly on the top as I have a large rib cage/bigger bust. Highly recommend this dress and would suggest sizing up if you are larger on top!
