I loved getting compliments!
I'm glad I read reviews and ordered a size up. I ended up wearing a size 4, the size 2 wouldn't fit over my hips. It wasn't too short either, which is nice since I have long legs. I recommend this dress for any formal occasion.

Hot dress!!!
Runs small with little stretch but still very hot. This was a replacement dress so I only received 1 size. RTR was great and had it hand delivered to my hotel.

I was surprised I didn't get that many compliments on my dress since I did think it looked great.
The slit on the side looks much better on the model than in person. I had to adjust quite a bit so it didnt look like my dress was poking out. The material does not hug the skin like I hoped so it affected the overall fit of the dress. Other than that it looked great.

Super Sexy!
I wore this for a night on the town with my husband. He LOVED IT! It is comfortable dress. It's not too tight that you can't move but it is still amazingly form fitting! Just got to make sure you have the right bra. I wore a strapless but needed to use bra tape to make sure the bra didn't peek in the cutout.

Dress is too long for a night out!
I rented this dress and returned it the next day. I'm not sure what you would wear this dress for - it's too long for a night out (I'm 5'3" and it went down to my knees) and too risque' (with the cut-out) for a formal affair that requires a knee-length dress. Also I would recommend this for larger chested girls...the left strap (?) over my cleavage was loose even on the size 2 (which fit fine everywhere else...)

Loved this dress on a friend, but it ran small on me :( Definitely not for the busty gal as it runs tight around the rib cage. Rock it with crazy jewelry, because it truly is just a little black dress despite the cut-outs. Nothing spectacular unless you can rock it

This dress is soooooo small! I ordered a size 10 which is my actual size and it didn't fit me. When i let my friend who wore a size 4 try the dress on it fit her perfectly. don't rent this dress if you have hips or boobs.

I'm always between XS and S in clothing and definitely could not zipper the 0 on me. The 2 fit, in theory, but the upper half was not flattering on me at all. I am an A cup, and the dress flattened me out. The bottom fit nicely though, but overall, the dress didn't make me feel sexy enough to wear on a night out.

So did you order your usual size of a 4 and that was too tight? My measurements are very similar to yours that's why I ask. Thanks in advance.

fun dress!
I was overall pleased with the dress. I'm 5'9" so I was a little surprised that it went to my knees, but it was still cute. I am usually between a 6 and an 8, and I ended up wearing the 8 since it was a little tight through the hips (the fabric is not stretchy). I received a lot of compliments that night and think that this dress is great.

Great form-fitting LBD w edge
I loved this dress and got many compliments. Beware that it runs at least one size small and is a bit smaller than average in the bust. The fabric is mid-weight with a very slight stretch. I usually wear a 2-4 and I ended up wearing my backup size (6). The fit on me did not allow the side cutout to show quite as much as shown on the model but it was still cute. Overall a great rental.

Got my friend and I invited to one of the best tables at the club!
I rented this dress for a Vegas vacation and wore it to dinner and the club. i loved the cut out part, it was a little long for my liking but I still like the way it looked on. I think this dress runs a little small....and there is no give in the material whatsoever. So if you're between sizes, Id suggest ordering a size up for back up!

large chest look elsewhere!
I rented this for my BF's military semi-formal. Ihave a tiny waist and large chest. I ordered a 2 & 4 and while the waist fit perfect in both- my chest was overflowing on top. it looked SO bad, which is a shame because it's a quality made dress. Cut-out dresses are tricky for busty ladies

perfect LBD
this dress was so fun and unique. definitely a RTR fav of mine. i'm glad i listened to past reviews because it does run smaller. i am normally a 4 but the 6 worked perfect. you can't wear a bra, so if you're not comfortable with that i'd steer clear.

Turning heads with revealing, yet tasteful, cutout dress!
Overall, the dress was a hit! However, it was longer than I expected. I'm 5'3" and it almost hit my knees. I rented it over another Black Halo dress because I thought it was shorter--need to look at models heights a little more closely. The length ended up slimming me though and the cutout was perfect for a Fraternity Semi Formal on Bourbon Street. Definitely runs small, I'm glad I ordered one size up because I ended up wearing the 6. I matched it with yellow Kate Spade earrings for some color!

Customer Service!
I am a fairly true size 0, so got this in a 0 and the free size 2. Unfortunately, neither of them fit at all! Usually things are snug on my butt, but the fabric wasn't forgiving enough and so I couldn't wear either dress and had to improvise. Thank goodness for RTR's great customer service - I was refunded the cost of the dress. I'll definitely be using RTR for another event!

Perfect for special night out
I rented this for my first Coldplay concert ---love love love Coldplay. I wanted to make the night even more special by ordering from RTR. I ordered in sizes 4 and 6. I went back and forth too many times to count. The 4 seemed a little too snug when seated but otherwise fit nicely. I ended up wearing the 6 which gapped about an inch under my left arm but I was able to fix with the tape included. Normally my biggest concern is the length but the length with this dress was good for my height and comfort level.

Great way to wear the cutout trend
Loved this dress for NYE - I usually wear a 4 but the 6 fit perfectly. It's tight all the way down - not like on the model. I was able to wear a stick-on bra and even spanx with this. It's very slimming and the cutout is not revealing - a classy way to wear the cutout trend. And at only $20 it was an awesome rental! Another hit for RTR!

Cute dress for NYE!
I usually wear between a size 2 or 4 in dresses, but I DEFINITELY needed a size four in this one. I usually wear a size 27 or 28 in jeans and don't exactly have a big bottom, but I found this dress really tight on the bottom, to the point where it was almost a little uncomfortable dancing. However, the cutout got rave reviews and it looked nice when I was standing and was comfortable enough to generally move around in. Overall, pretty good, but not my favorite dress of all time!

I am a pretty true 8, and this was way too small around my hips/butt area. Didn't even bring with me on vacation.

Simple LBD with a twist
I love the concept of this dress but it runs on the small side. I was able to fit into the dress but I would have been uncomfortable at the party all night in it. I ended up returning it. I'm short and it seemed a tad long but the bust area fit fine.

the cut was different, really made it stand out in a sea of black dresses
The bust was really tight and I don't have a big bust, so I had to go up a size. If you happen to have skin in your armpits-area, you might want to size up or it'll bulge there. I went a size up and it was more flattering.

Luckily I had another backup dress that was awesome.
This dress would work for someone with a small chest but not for me. Luckily I received other dresses that looked amazing. Also, this dress runs quite small. Definitely size up.

I felt like a show stopper in this dress. The cut out is sexy, without being too revealing.
I rented this dress to wear for a Bachelorette party in Vegas. I felt this dress ran small. I could barely breathe, but loved the dress anyway. I would order a size up for your back-up size. I liked where the slit was - it was my favorite part of the dress. For $50, it's a great rental!

Gorgeous!
This dress was gorgeous! It definitely shows off your curves and fits snugly. If you are pear shaped (like me) I recommend ordering the size up as your back up. I ended up wearing the 6 as it fit better in the chest region, but was slightly too snug on the lower half. The 8 was better in the hips, but way too loose in the chest. Other than that it looks beautiful on and sure to get compliments!

I'm not quite sure how this dress could fit anybody well... Several of my friends and I tried it on, and it looked awkward on all different body types. It was long and the cutout was very unflattering. You have to be very tall for this to fit.

Great dress!
I absolutely loved this dress! I'm usually a 6, but the hips were a little tight in this dress, so I sized up to the 8 for a perfect fit (I'm a hippy girl so this wasn't unexpected.) I got compliments all night! Def recommended for a sassy LBD

WAYY SMALL!
Great dress and design but the style does not allow for anyy movement. the bottom was tight, the cutout was tight, and the way it fit on my body was not flattering at all. don't rent this unless you can't find another LBD, it isn't that special.

Great summer party dress....with a twist!
I didn't end up wearing this dress because it was my back up dress and I opted for another RTR Herve dress instead. I felt like this dress was a little more casual and would have been great for a night out during summer. The fabric is thick but in the cotton family. Very sexy...this one remains on my list for the perfect ocassion. Although it fit fine, I have hips so it was a little snug in that area.

Unfortunately, I did not wear the dress on my trip to Las Vegas
The fit was small - I choose two sizes for this one based on the measurements and what others had to say and thankfully I ordered the size I thought I would wear and one size up. The one size up fit but was snug. The top of it fit well but the bottom part was snug. I think if I tried a size 10, the top would have been too big.

Runs small, no give
I took a gamble and rented this despite the fact that my back up wasn't available AND the reviews says it runs small. It was too tight to consider wearing to the bachelorette as planned (no dancing in that dress for me!) so I returned it with no problems.. RTR customer service was amazing per the usual :)
