Dress was great. You must be ok with a lot of cleavage showing.
Size worn: MR
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I liked how the dress fit. The gathered fabric was very flattering around the waist where many women are a little self-conscious, however, the fabric at the top moved around all night long. I was constantly making sure things were staying in the dress and covered. I wore sticky, fabric bra cups that clipped together in the middle and, though they worked great for such a low-cut dress, the dress didn't stay put so I was constantly checking to make sure the bra cups were not showing. length was great for a 2 inch heel. Flats would have made the dress drag on the ground.

Drop dead sexy
Size worn: ML
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
This was my back up dress and I ended up wearing it because my main choice was not long enough. I am 5'10" and it is very hard to find a dress long enough to hit the floor while wearing heels. This dress hit the target in that category. I wore 3" heels and it just brushed the floor. Felt very sexy in it and received many compliments (mainly from women, oddly enough). Now for the "not so great" for this dress. it is just like every other review says: 1) the top is large (thank goodness I have a DDD bra size), I wore it with one of those stick on bras but could have gone braless honestly. Otherwise, pinning it up behind the neck works well if your hair is down to hide it. 2) The material is VERY see through. Not a big deal in low lighting situations but it did show through in photos with flashes. Bottom line: if I owned this dress, I would definitely wear it again after getting the top altered.

The dress fits fabulously It hugs the curves in the right places. I will agree with past reviews it is a bit sheer on the top in the back and it does work better with SPANX, especially if you are going to be in a well lit environment, I highly recommend something underneath. It is definitely a dress that encourages the girls to be front and center at the party! Would rent it again !

This dress was the right length and sat very nicely. The material is a little sheer so plan to wear a slip, definitely needed the fashion tape, not really cut for a bra. I felt really glamourous in this dress.

Love how easy RTR is
Size worn: MR
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I've used RTR 5 times now, and this was my least favorite rental. I'm not sure if the chest part was just stretched out from previous rentals, but I wouldn't have been able to wear it if I didn't pin a brooch to hold the chest opening together more (I'm a 34C). It was also a bit sheer, it ended up not being an issue but at first I thought it was too sheer. I'm also 5'7", and I don't like wearing huge heels, but needed to so that it didn't drag on the floor (wore regular). I think there's better black dresses to choose from on here.

Super sexy comfortable dress
Size worn: MR
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
Should have worn the S - it seemed a bit small in the house, so I wore the M, but had to pin it behind my neck. I think it stretched a bit over the evening - and would probably have been better off in the S. Also had a hard time getting fashion tape to stick to the dress to keep it in place - eventually gave up and took off the tape, which meant it was gaping a bit in the front - but nothing too bad.

The dress fit beautifully. It was low cut, but not so low cut that my girls were falling out! I was also glad that it wasn't too tight around my thighs. It really looked beautiful. As soon as I tried it on, I knew it would be perfect for the wedding that I was attending - and it was!

The dress was very low cut in the front so needed to buy a special bra. The dress might have been a little more flattering if the mid-section area was a little more fitting. Overall it looked good!

This was the most comfortable dress ever, and it was the perfect height for my 3" heels. The only disappointment was I wished the waste did more cinching. I guess that's the tradeoff for comfort. Either way, it was really great. This was my first experience with RTR, and I don't think I'll ever buy a new dress again!

The fit was overall very good except for the chest. A quick look for a broach and I was good to go in making sure the girls were covered up. The length was a tad longer than I was expecting, but a good pair of 3" heels and I wasn't worried about tripping on the hem of the dress.

I ordered this as my backup dress but it was very loose around the bust line and waist for me. Had I not had such a great dress as my first choice I would have pinned the back of the halter neck and gone with it. A sexy dress just a little too roomy to be a really flattering fit for me.

i chose this dress as a back up in case my first pick didn't look right. good thing. the dress was HUGE. even a size small was way too big and I would normally where at least a medium. its a good thing I had another option or I would have been really frustrated. other renters must have had similar problems because there were pin marks in several places on the dress I received making me thing other people must have tried to pin it up to get it to fit.

This is a great dress. Very flattering and slimming. The material was great and so comfortable. The halter needed to be pinned a bit in the back to make it fit - but that wasn't a big deal. I wore it with a deep plunging bra and spanx. The long length was perfect with my heels. I got many amazing compliments. I definitely recommend this dress.

RTR makes everything so easy!
Size worn: MR
Overall fit: Large

I saw that this dress ran a bit big so I got both the small and the medium. I ended up wearing the medium because the small felt a little tight, but it fit in the top and the length was right. I had to pin the halter back so it would fit and even with 4in heels the dress was still long. Despite the minor adjustments I had to make I loved the dress and the whole RTR experience. The night was amazing and I looked beautiful.

I was advised by my stylist to order a long in small and medium. I wore 3 inch heels but both were too long for my 5'5 frame. I called and spoke with customer service, they apologized profusely for misadvising me and rushed me a small regular, which fit well except that the front was a little too low cut for my comfort- the tape that was provided by RTR worked perfectly. I felt amazing in this dress. Oh- forgot to mention that I was 4 months pregnant at the time. The jersey material hugged my curves well and I felt amazing despite the pregnancy

The dress is very comfortable and great if you want a classic look. I thought it could of fit a little bit tighter. If they had an x-small that would of been great.

Looks terrible and did not fit
Size worn: SL
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
The dress looks stunning in the photo but unfortunately looked horrible on me. My body type is similar to the models in the photo, I thought the dress would fit in a similar fashion but instead it looked like I was drowning in it. The top was entirely way too big, so much that if I wore the dress my entire breasts would have been exposed. Even with a miraculous bra that gives 2 cup sizes I could not fill out the top, and even if I did, the waist area was not fitted at all. The material also looks cheap in person. It's a shame because I was so excited about this dress, I was forced to run out and buy a dress 2 hours before the event. **Take their advice and make sure you get the dress the day before the event. I got mine the day of and was in a bind with nothing to wear. **
