Did not wear, ran slightly big, I am normally a size 4. The top would not lay correct and did not work like the picture. Wore back-up dress. Nice material however.

Great dress, would rent again!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
Great dress! I wore it to an evening wedding and received lots of compliments and questions about where I found the dress. It is sexy but not too revealing. I usually don't wear tight dresses but this one was flattering. I did have to use tape to keep shoulder straps in place and to keep from hanging open in front. I am 116 lbs are wore the 6, the size 4 fit but did not hang as nicely as the 6.

I loved the look of this dress, but it ran small. I have an athletic build and broad shoulders and the cut out straps didn't rest correctly on my body. I also have a small bra size so it seemed the top was slightly big on me and the body was tight. If you have a leaner athletic build this will look awesome on you.

This dress was pretty tight around my bust but fit well over the rest of my body. And the biggest challenge for me is the length of dresses since I'm short. It was too long (past my knees) and was not flattering. If I was tall and skinny it would have fit perfectly and I would have loved to wear it but I opted with something else.

This dress is absolutely stunning! I wore it to a cocktail party and got so many compliments. It definitely runs small. I typically wear a size 2 or 4 in designer dresses, but actually wore this one in a size 6.

Loved the feel and look of this dress. Unfortunately I felt that it ran a bit small and was unable to wear either sized shipped. The slit on the side was very high as well...So not great for a conservative church wedding I was attending. Although I didnt get to wear this dress - I still loved RTR service. They shipped me two new dresses overnight just in time for the wedding.

Loved this dress, even if it wasn't my final choice for the wedding I attended. Plan to rent it again for a date night since it lives up to its "sultry" title! The form fitting was perfect, and I suggest sizing up for your 2nd option. Also recommend a body shaper since this is so form fitting around the waist line. Will rent again!

This dress is sexy but elegant. The slit on the back was very pretty. I wore this to a wedding rehearsal dinner and it made me stand out. My only complaint is that the slit does come up very high on the thigh. Also, plan ahead if you need to wear a bra--you will need to get stick-'ems!

I rented this dress for a wedding having never worn a dress by this designer before. Though the size 4 fit it wasn't flattering. The seam in the middle didn't hit my natural waist, it was too long and the side slit was awkard. It somehow managed to look trampy and frumpy at the same time. Also, the material wasn't very nice. I ended wearing one of my own dresses

Not as classy as you'd want...

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I got this dress after reading the reviews about how fantastic it looked and, I must admit, it wasn't as showstopping as I hoped. I ended up wearing a friends dress after my backup didn't work out either and I must warn you - the slit is much higher than it looks on the model. But I will admit the cut on the back is awesome...

Great dress for taller women

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size

I ordered this dress for a NYE party. Unfortunately I had to return it the next day because it didn't fit. While I love the look of this dress.(The cut outs are fantastic!) It just didn't work for my body type. The shoulder straps wouldn't lay correctly, it was too long for me, made me look boxy. I would totally recommend this dress for the taller ladies!!

I rented this dress for a NYE party and absolutely loved it! The dress is gorgeous on! I received a lot of comments on the dress and everyone wanted to know where I bought it. Of course mentioned RTR and told everyone to check the website out. I would highly recommend this dress to anyone that is looking for a very sexy and very classy look. Just remember to size up because the dress does run small.

Great Dress...

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
This was my backup dress, which I loved. I didn't actually wear it as my original dress I loved as well; however, this was great dress. I'm generally a 4, but based on reviews ordered a 6 for the "assets". Top fit fine but the rest was a little big. Also, at 5:10 this fell to my knee and is sexy but appropriate for more conservative events. Would definitely rent again as a primary dress, but woul dperhaps try the 4 as well.

Cut-outs fall in strange place

This dress runs small compared to other dresses by this designer and the cut-outs fall in all the wrong places for someone with a big bust.

this dress is really pretty, but, unfortunately, it runs way too small. i am typically a size 4 and ordered a 6 as a back-up. neither fit, and i'd be hard-pressed to believe that an 8 would even fit.

Nice in theory...

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Date
I didn't end up wearing this dress but I wanted to so bad because it is just so beautiful and modern. Unfortunately the cutouts just didn't work with my body. The leg opening was very high (even though I am fairly short) and the shoulder opening was so low in the back that I would not have been able to wear a bra. The shoulder strap was also too long for my torso. Had I worn this dress I would have needed the bigger size but it just didn't work for my body type. I do not recommend this dress for shorter and curvier women, it would have been better on a taller and straighter body.

I didn't get to wear it because it didn't fit me properly. I have a short torso so I think that's why it didn't fit right. This was my back up dress anyway so it didn't Matter since my first option fit perfectly.

fit really well, the double strap on one side definitely made it more interesting than any little black dress. But that shoulder strap was a little big on me and slid off a few times throughout the night. overall a good dress!

Daring Dress

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
I rented this dress for New Years and it definetly is for the daring. The straps are very unique but prevent larger chested girls from wearing it as the cleavage pushes the straps from where they should lay on the shoulder, creating a weird bulge. Definetly for ladies B and under. Good as far as length but I ended up not wearing it and buying my own dress.

I got this dress as a back up and the size 0 wwould of been what I would of worn! I loved this dress but it was a tad bit to long for me and the zipper cinched right at my hips and made the dress look a bit awkward. I would definitly reccomend this dress for someone a bit taller and maybe not so curvy in the hip area!

Gorgeous dress! Sexy yet classy!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Other
I ordered the dress in a 6 and an 8 for a dinner I was attending. The 6 fit perfect on the top but a bit too fitted on the bottom. The 8 was perfect in the bottom and a little large on top. I wore the size 8. The straps kept moving around and shifting making me show a little more cleavage than I needed. I ended up putting a safety pin to join the straps together and it works. I think if I was a D cup the 8 would have fit better. I'm 5'4 and the dress reached the bottom on my knee which was perfect. I woke my hair down and some nude pumps. Loved the dress I might have to buy it!
