I wore this dress to a fundraising event that was themed in a Hollywood style.
The dress was a little short and I did not wear heels. The bust area also ran large. I had to use tape to hold up the back so the tag wouldn't stick out. The material was a little stretchy and very comfortable.

The amazing service. So easy. And the garment bag is genius!
Very forgiving and easy gown to wear. I wore this 5 weeks after giving birth to my third child and it was super easy to wear and hid a lot of my problem areas! I was 135lbs and 5'4 inches and wore the 38R, but the top was large even for this nursing mama. A 36R would have worked better. Wore with 4 inch heels and it was still a bit long.

This dress was FABULOUS! I would order it again for another event.
This was one of two dresses I ordered. This one fit perfectly and was exception length with my 3 inch heels. I loved it and received many compliments. I also paired it with a RTR necklace and the result was perfect.

Beautiful dress
I wore this dress to a Gala. It was very beautiful and form fitting. However, the dress was a little too short. I would recommend ordering the Long size.

I ordered late and the only size available was 34R - but luckily it fit!
Pros: elegant, conservative, subtly sexy - perfect for a bridesmaid. Cons: The boob padding is weird and made my silhouette kind of bumpy, if I'd bought the dress I would have cut it out. The pictures make it look like there is a tie on the side, I think it has been removed - but I liked it better without it.

Very flattering and tons of compliments!
Picked this dress for a wedding. I normally wear a 6. I ordered the 34R and 36R. Wore 36. 34 definitely fit, but was nervous that after eating and drinking the night away, it would be more revealing in stomach area. The bunching definitely hides this well! I probably could have gotten away with the 34 though. Just mentally nervous about it I guess. All night compliments galore! Very flattering. Recommend wearing with heals as it hit right at the top of my shoes.

Very comfortable and perfect for a black tie event.
I'm 5'7 about 120 lbs. I ordered a 34R bc I could only get it in a regular length. I wore smaller heels and it worked out fine. I also couldn't fill out the top part as I would of liked. But over all I would recommend this dress!! Loved it!

Feeling like a movie star!
I usually wear between a 0 and a 2 but size 2 was the only size available. It was a tiny bit big in the chest area but other than that fit like a glove!! A 0 would have been to short, the 2 was absolutely perfect in length! I was very impressed, the dress was so beautiful and extremely comfortable.

Great Dress; Runs Big
This dress was beautiful and definitely would have been long enough for me with heels. I did not get to wear it though due to my unpreparedness in ordering with a decent amount of time before the event. I decided to order the dress only days before the wedding I was supposed to go to so the only size available was a size 10. Usually I am between a size8/10 depending on waist and length (I have a big booty). This dress would have been perfect had I ordered a smaller size.

Black tie fundraiser Gala. Danced all night in this dress!
I'm usually a size 6 or 8...the sales rep on the phone picked size 42L - which was WAY to big everywhere - not to mention about 6 inches too long even with my heels. I'm 5'6 1/2". They sent a 40R the next day - which was still a smidge too big, but it worked and it was so comfortable! Fabric is stretchy - so I was wishing I had gone with the next size down for extra "hug". I love the simplicity of this dress. The "tie up" on the side is strictly decorative, but adds a nice, sexy detail (it doesn't show up in this pic). I'm so glad I picked it for my "back-up" dress at the last minute. Great experience shopping with RTR - beats running around town from store to store!

My first RTR near miss
Thank goodness I ordered this to be picked up and tried on before the rental. I'm 5'4", 32C and tried on the 36R after reading reviews and it barely came to my ankle. Additional, I consider myself thin but athletic and the hips,waist and stomach area was so unforgiving that it created the illusion that I had a bit of a tummy bump, in black none the less! Be weary of the the length and make sure you've got your spanx!

Good baby bump dress
I didn't end up wearing it because the size I got was too big - but it would have been nice for a growing bump. I was about 4.5 months at the time and the fabric definitely could have stretched further. I panicked and got the bigger size due to the belly and should have gone with my pre-preggo size.

This is a great dress in a classic style that can be dresses up or down with accessories.
I am a 0 and this dress was big and long. Note in picture that I used a sash that I had around my waist so I could pull the dress up and make it shorter. Tried taping it - not easy on this dress. It is form fitting but not tight. It was actually too big on me in the bust/shoulders but it does well when it does't fit exactly right. I picked this dress because I as not sure how dressy this black tie event would be and it made a great well-fitted dress and a fantastic backdrop for good accessories.

Classic and well fitting.
The fabric was heavy (but not uncomfortable) so it hung very well. It had the perfect amount of stretch and was very forgiving and flattering. I normally would have chosen the Long size but I had to wear flats for this event due to a foot injury. The regular size was about 1/2 inch from the floor. If you want to wear heels and are 5'7" or over, I would definitely recommend the Long.

Classic and comfortable
I received this dress in a 34R and 36R. I tried the 34R on first and it fit well in general, but the ruching wasn't quite right because the little strappy things that are supposed to hang down on one side were missing. They were still attached on the 36R, but it was too big. I called RTR and they offered to send me any other available dress (at any price!) free of charge since this dress, while still wearable, was damaged and didn't fit exactly how it should. The other dress I picked was unwearable because of a zipper issue so I ended up wearing this dress in the 34R. It was fine, but I had to keep picking it up all night since it didn't fit right. I also used fashion tape to keep the dress up a little better. Overall, it's a pretty dress and I did get compliments on it. I hope they are able to fix it because I think it would look really nice if it's repaired.

I am 9 months pregnant and this dress worked great!
The dress was completely stretchy so it fit my 9 month pregnant belly! I looked slim in all the right places and the belly looked really cute! The top was a bit wide and I had to pin the one side, but if you have a large chest, it would work great.

I'm also looking for a dress that will accommodate my 7month preggo belly. What sizes are you normally? I'm bigger busted, so I'm thinking this may work along with the stretchy material. Because of my bust, I would normally get an 8 or 10. Just not sure which size to get now.

Simple, comfortable, elegant dress.
I wore this dress to a black tie gala for work. The dress is very comfortable because of the jersey fabric, but because it is black it looks formal. I didn't notice the drawstring in the RTR photo (and I didn't love that part of the dress) but it wasn't that noticeable and created more of a waist. Overall, thumbs up.

I didn't wear this dress.
I received a 40L in this dress, as well and it was HUGE. It literally hung off me. It looked like I was wearing a sack. I would possibly recommend this dress if you are curvy, but flat-chested girls stay away, or get at least one size smaller than usual. I can't say that it was anything too remarkable, otherwise. It's a simple, serviceable black dress.

Great dress! It was a nice fit and the fabric was comfortable for a long evening!
The fit was very nice and the fabric was comfortable for a long formal evening. At times the dress felt a bit heavy and I was unsure what to do with the hanging strings. All in all, it was a great dress - very simple and elegant.

I didn't wear this one.
The dress ran quite large and was too open on the shoulder-less side. Really flattering design, comfortable fabric. I usually wear a 4 or small, but I needed an xs in this one.

Meh. Its okay.
Thought I would love this dress - really attracted to the string detail on the side. However, top part was ill-fitting and loose, and overall, dress hid my shape and looked slightly paper-baggish. Like the design but think the dress is only okay. Luckily, my back up dress fit perfectly!

I wore this dress to a gala. It was definitely very form fitting and fashionable.
I ordered a 36L and the length of the dress was quite longer than I expected even with my 4 inch heels. I had to be careful not to trip on the dress. I would have probably felt better in a 36R. However the dress was extremely comfortable and easy to wear.

Fabric too heavy
This is such a classic style and cut, which made it very appealing to me. However, the fabric is VERY heavy and pulls down the rest of the dress. It was too unflattering for me to want to wear.

Comfortable and stylish!
I rented this dress for a semi-formal wedding rehearsal dinner. The bride decided last minute she all wanted us in long black dresses. This was my first RTR experience and it was wonderful! I got the 34R and it fit me with a little room left over. One thing that I wish I had known is that it's not fitted all the way thru the middle. Other than that, a great fit and I got some wonderful compliments!

Elegant and sexy for NYE!
This dress fit like a glove without looking inappropriate. It has very nice construction, with an inner liner which helps cinch in/smooth out the lumps! Fabric is a very high quality viscose jerseyBust was a little tight, but not uncomfortably so- there is enough give in the dress to make it super comfortable. Length was beautiful, pooling a little on the floor-- however, I did have to lift dress to prevent tripping when I was shaking it up on the dance floor. Only issue I had with the dress is that it is very difficult to get on and off- there is no zipper on the side or back (which makes for beautiful lines) but I needed a helper to wiggle it down. Do your hair after you put on the dress...

I really liked this dress. Its a great fit if you are not so large up top.
The dress was a perfect length and was a great pick. I could dress it up with accessories or dress it down. Its a very versitale dress! I loved the convenience of being able to just drop it in the package and drop it at the nearest post office. I will be renting a dress again for my company Christmas party.

Too baggy
I rented this as my second dress for a formal affair. It was way too big when I tried it on. I would suggest getting a couple sizes smaller than normal because the material is very stretchy.
