Great dress!

Amazing dress. Fit like a glove. Runs small in my opinion. This was a very sexy LBD I would love to buy. Not incredibly easy to move in-would not recommend for a wedding if you plan to dance. It was a great date night dress though!

Size up!

Lovely & well made, just runs super small. Fabric has zero stretch. Currently between sizes 8-10; ordered 10. Could not zip past waist. Pretty, elegant and sexy style. Will try in a 12 if available.

Amazing. Dont want to give it back!!

Incredible dress. Arrived new with tags. Best rental yet. Tempted to give it a terrible review so noone else rents it, but i wont do that to y'all! Amazing, stunning, showstopper. Runs small - im usually a 0, and i wore a 2. The arms are super snug. Dont expect to be able to move them at all! Or reach anythikg above your waist. But well worth it!

Beautiful but size up 3 sizes!

This dress is beautiful but as the reviews state runs way too small, normally a 4 - I tried on the 8 and it was WAY too tight, especially in the sleeves. I could tell it's a beautiful dress, the sizing issues takes some stars off.

Ridiculously small!

Rented this for a formal affair, neither size fit me, I couldn't get it past my thighs and there was no way it was fitting over my arms. Rent two sizes up from what you normally are if you're going to rent this!

Appropriate for a formal wedding

This dress fits small, I'm normally a 0 but wore a 2 in this one. The 4 actually fit my body better, but I didn't have enough in the bust area to fill it in. The dress slipped down on the shoulders and created some weird folding that looks like arm fat in some photos. The material was nice quality! Overall an okay rental, but you definitely need an hourglass figure for this dress.

Old hollywood!

Absolutely loved this dress, once I figured out the sizing. I am normally a 2 or 4, and needed an 8 in this. The 6 zipped, but I couldn't breathe. Comfortable and well made. I would rent this again in a heartbeat.

Runs very small

This dress is gorgeous and well made but the 12 was uncomfortable and tight on me. I usually wear a 6/8 and have a muscular build and need a little more give in a dress this style.

This dress was amazing!

I got so many compliments and loved this dress. It is made in China and the sizing is not true to American sizing. I wear a size 6 and wore a VERY tight 10. I would have been more comfortable in a 12!

Absolutely loved this little black dress!

This was a sleek and elegant dress! I received so many compliments...it hugged in all the right places! Per the reviews I ordered a higher size than normal. (Depending on the designer I can wear anything from a 4-8) I ordered an 8 and a 10 and the 8 fit perfectly. It is limited with arm range of motion, but manageable!

Snug but sexy

When they says it runs small, BELIEVE THEM!! I usually wear a 4, I rented and 8 and it was snug but very flattering. Sitting, going to the bathroom, putting shoes on we're challenging but the pay off was my husband jaw dropping every time he looked at me. He must have told me I was beautiful more than any night I can remember in 15 years!! Plus my daughter said I should buy the dress. Win win!!

Not designed to fit human women

I ordered a 6 and 8 of this style after reading reviews that said it ran small. I'm usually a 2 or 4. The 6 was fitted through the body but wouldn't zip and the 8 barely zipped after a lot of contortion but was baggy through the body. If I had worn the dress I think I would have been very uncomfortable, as it was very tight in the arms. Both sizes were a bit long as well. Good thing RTR gave me a back up style!

Sophisticated sexy

Love this dress! The neckline was really flattering, and I felt so sexy in it! It really has that old Hollywood feel to it. The only reason I gave four stars was that it was quite small. I read the reviews and got two sizes up. And thank goodness I did! I ALWAYS need a bra, and I didn't even need one it was so form fitting. Which was nice because it def gave the sex appeal but when it came to dancing it was a little difficult. I couldn't really even get a full stride in when I walked lol. BUT I am a slave for fashion and I have to say that it was a worth it sacrifice for how great I felt in it!

I FELT and looked like a million bucks in this dress! It's classy but oh so sexy!

I normally wear a size 6 or 8 in dresses. Due to other reviews I rented a size 10 and 12 and I ended up wearing the size 12 in this dress. The fabric has a very nice weight to it and it really looks like an expensive dress. It is quite form fitting and you won't be able to raise your arms all that high but is that really all that important when you're going to a formal affair and you want to look HAF??? Not to me ladies! I looked great, I felt great, I had no problems walking, dancing, or drinking! I call that a WIN/WIN. Rent it.

Sassy & classy! #myfirstRTR

I just had a baby - 2 months ago and this was perfect and so glad I sized up 2 sizes. I'm in between sizes and my bust was even bigger than expected bc I'm nursing so I was all bust! But loved the curves, loved the material- thick enough to hold the girls in! If you are curvy be prepared for some major cleavage. But I still thought it was super classy dress. Loved my first rental!

Would've been great if I could fit..

I normally wear a size 8-10; tried on 8 in the RTR pop up store and wouldn't even begin to zip up in the back, so stylist informed me to get 2 sizes up - ordered a 12 to be shipped to a wedding I was going to, thank God I had a backup option because the 12 would only zip up halfway... not sure if you need 3-4x your normal size in this brand?? It's French but I probably won't be ordering from their line again... good luck ladies this one is for the 0 & 2s!!

I had this for a back up dress- it's beautiful but the 6 was too tight.

Doesn't really stretch too much, it's meant to be tight fitting. I would recommend a size up for comfort.

The shipping was incredible & I'm incredibly busy.RTR was right on time & every thing was INCREDIBLE

The fit is true to size & being a tall woman that wears 5 inch heels it was the classy length. Still sexy but conservative! Never ending compliments! The great little Black Dress. Every woman that is looking too politely turn heads, this is the dress. The packaging is highly organized and easy to access.

Flattering and form fitting but runs small

The neckline is very flattering and it's great for showing off your curves. I would definitely wear this again and I highly recommend it. However, it does run very small, I'm usually a size 4 and I'm glad I ordered a size 6 as a backup. I didn't even try on the size 4 because size 6 barely fit. I think a size 8 would have been better. Since it was very tight, I had trouble getting it on and off so make sure you have someone helping. It's also a little long, so if you want to hem it, I used Hollywood fashion tape and it worked wonderfully all night.

All class, but little movement

Ladies! Listen to the reviews! This dress runs small. I'm usually a size 0 and I'm so glad I ordered the 4. Loved the style but it was hard to keep the dress up and it was difficult to move my arms. Great for a fundraiser because I wasn't moving much but I definitely couldn't wear this to a wedding.

"Little" Black Dress

I paid close attention to other reviews and decided to order a size 10&12, I normally wear a 6 or 8. I couldn't zip the 10 and the 12 was still incredibly snug around my bust and arms. I wore it anyway, as I didn't have time to order a backup. I received tons of compliments, but I was uncomfortable most of the night.

I mean this dress is EVERYTHING

This picture doesn't do it justice. When I say this dress is everything, I mean EVERYTHING. I was voted best dressed by my coworkers and they're never that nice lol. The "cons" of this dress are: it runs small and you will need help getting zipped in. You won't be able to lift your arms very much. And it shows the outline of your undies. Some helpful tips are to get this dress a couple of sizes up or to go to the website for this designer and use their measurements to determine your size. You WILL NOT NEED a bra or shape wear, trust me!! I will highly recommend no show undies tho. Get this dress. Do it. Click "reserve".

Tight squeeze

I am so torn on this dress. I wanted to love it but the sizing is ridiculous. I rent clothes from another service and never have issues. I am 5'7" and 155 lbs with an athletic build. I generally wear a size 6, but even the 12 was tight in my arms and chest. While I am athletic, I've never had anything so tight on my arms and chest but lose through my waist and hips. The size 10 fit much better through the hips and waist but there's no way I could have zipped it. Even the 12 required help zipping and I couldn't wait to take it off as my ribs felt like they were slowly being crushed. If your curvier I'm really not sure how you would use the restroom in this. I could luckily pull it up since it was lose in the hips but I can't imagine curvier ladies having that ability. Overall: don't plan on being remotely comfortable, size up, and not for an event where you need lots of motion. So cute but not functional.

Beautiful, formal, size up

I poured myself into this gorgeous dress! I am a solid size 4 and based on others reviews, I sized up to an 8. That advice was perfect. I am 5'2 and I like the longer length. For reference, I have an hourglass shape, 32D. You will have limited mobility in the arms, but the dress is really fabulous.
