ended up not wearing this dress because it was too big
The fabric on this dress is very stretchy and although the dress is sexy it wasn't flattering on me. It was too long and I usually wear a size 4 but would've benefited from a size 0.

Very Conservative
It fits true to size, hugs the body nicely but I felt comp;et;y boring in it even after accessories, hair and make up and I didn't wear it. It would be good for a work event or religious event. I found it minimized my breasts also. Large breasted women would feel supported and slimmed in the chest.

Too long
I loved the dress but it was too long. I'm 5'9" and it was still an inch below my knees. I went with my second option.

This dress was classically stunning.
This dress was classically stunning. I received compliments from men and women alike! The dress does run long, but I loved that about it. It does not require slimming undergarments as it keeps everything nice and tucked tight. I wore with statement earrings and an updo for a dramatic look.

The excellent customer service received by RTR!
The fit runs large so def recommend sizing down. I wore this dress to my friend's bachelorette dinner cruise and after party. Its conservative yet sexy with the cut outs and the open back. Definitely a statement and very complimentary to the figure.

I couldn't wear the dress because the dress fits but the arms were tight and looked terrible from the back..it was the equivalent of back rolls...from the arms.

Amazing dress. Very flattering on my tall frame
I loved this dress. Lots of compliments. Would love to wear it again. That being said, the skirt went all the way to my knees, so I don't know how anybody who isn't very tall would feel about that.

I absolutely loved this dress. It was just stunning. I received so many compliments on it!
It was so luxurious. The material felt rich and it was very nicely made. My only complaint is the hook & eye closure behind the neck kind of dug into my skin a bit. I also had to shorten it with hemming tape, but other than that it was amazing.

Sensational quality, totally edgy, understated, chic!!
Women appreciate this dress more than men so don't get this for a date unless it's for an ultra conservative event. This dress is not cocktail attire either. But if you want to WOW at a high-profile business meeting you will totally dominate in this number. The back is sexy, your shoulder blades are exposed so bra straps are a no-no. Wear it with colossally tall heels and either a chic clutch or bag. I wore it with a large Hermes cuff over the fabric and a Jimmy Choo motorcycle bag and felt like a million bucks for my business dinner with both men and women. I am normally a size 00, so the 0 was a bit baggy around the hips by the end of the evening - a problem I'm sure is fixed each time it's dry cleaned. I am 100% renting this again. The fabric is heavy and warm - great for a winter meeting. Not great for a hot summer day. One of my RTR favorites!

Loved it!
I usually wear a 4 or 6 depending on the fit of the dress. There was no 6 available so I went with the four. Although it was a bit snug I fit fine and was really comfortable. The fabric is really forgiving and feels great. It is a bit longer than I expected but with heels it looks perfect. I wore this out on Valentine's Day and got lots of compliments! I would definitely wear it again.

I was told to "WERKK HONEY, YOU ARE FIERCE!" This dress made Valentines Weekend awesome.
The fit was great, but it was a nightmare trying to get the dress on without help. The clasp on the neck was kind of bothersome too.

Great dress!
I am usually a 2 or 4, but the two ended up being a little big. The dress is amazing, very slimming, and gives you a very defined waist while still being very comfortable. The sleeves are very cool and make the dress classy yet sexy. It hits just below the knee and is the perfect cocktail dress. I would definitely rent again!

This dress is very pretty and although it didnt wear as well, I loved it!
The neck hooks are very tight and made me feel a little uncomfortable all night. The sleeves were shorter on the 10 than the 8 but I ended up wearing the size 8. Fit like a glove and was a stunning dress with the back out.

perfect combo of sexy & classy
This dress was perfect. Fit me perfectly and I didn't have to wear a bra which is a huge plus! When I don't have to wear one I am a very happy gal it was form fitting enough to keep the puppies up and you couldn't notice I wasn't wearing one. The dress does not wrinkle or ride up or move. I didn't have to adjust anything which i was worried about due to the attached but not attached sleeves. The only negative and it wasn't really that noticeable was the clasp around your neck can irritate you a little. So for those who have super sensitive skin I would maybe get a band aid to put underneath it. But other than that it was perfect. I would rent it again if I didn't have so many pictures it ;)

Fun take on the LBD with flattering cut outs
I wore this dress to attend a show and received so many compliments. The length is appropriate for so many different occasions and the sleeves kept me warm while adding style. Note: the sleeves are completely unattached from the dress. They clip behind the neck and show a good portion of your upper back. Though the "arm pit" cut outs may seem strange, they're incredibly flattering!

This dress fit like a glove. I wish I could own it!
Pros: Perfect fit for hourglass, pear shaped or even athletic builds; thick fabric and lining that hid bumps and bulges. Con: Not exactly a con, but a tip: The back sits at an odd level which makes it a bit tricky to to wear with a strapless. I found myself having to adjust its height throughout the night.

This dress was fantastic. I wish I could afford to buy it! The fit was amazingly flattering, and I loved the cutouts on the front and the open back. I wore it to a bachelorette party and got tons of compliments. Would definitely recommend - the best dress I've rented so far!

Elegant but NOT the dress for us short girls!
Its a beautiful dress and very well made however, I am 5"3 and the length was just too long. It felt really matronly and aged me instantly. So I opted not to wear the dress. However, I do think it is a elegant dress for a professional event. I just think its better suited for women 5"5 and above.

I LOVED this dress. The fabric was tight yet forgiving, the neckline was so interesting, and the length was perfect. Definitely got a lot of compliments, and felt great dancing in it all night long. I really wish I could keep it.

I received a ton of compliments, it not your typical little black dress. The quality is great!! Now if you have thicker arms and large bust, this may not be a the best fit for you, the sleaves are narrow. LOVED IT and would definitely rent it again.

I wish I owned this dress!
Loved, loved, loved it! It fit perfectly. The material is thick (and somewhat stretchy) so it holds everything together. I was worried how the sleeves would fit but I didn't have any issues whatsoever. It is a longer dress but with the cut and fit, the length adds elegance and class. I had so many compliments on it (my friend even sent me a picture of Britney Spears in the same dress). All-in-all, it made me feel beautiful and that's all that matters! I highly recommend.

Conservative and Sexy at the same time.
This dress was absolutely wonderful. I definitely agree with other reviewers that it does run large. I am usually an 8, but the 6 fit perfectly. Also, being 6'2" tall, the length of the dress was great - and appropriate for a fall wedding. The 'armpit holes' took a second to get used to, but they really add a hint of fun to an otherwise simple dress. I never knew you could get so many compliments on a dress with a conservative length and neckline. :) I had a blast in the dress and wish it was in my closet permanently.

I felt very sexy in this dress. It wasn't the usual little black dress.
The fit was great, very form fitting but flattering. I'm bigger on the bottom than I am on the top but it looked great. Just need statement earrings and a great bag to make the outfit.

I felt like a million bucks!
The dress was amazing! The fabric was heavy and stretchy, it felt expensive. It fit great - I wore spanx and pasties and it worked great (you can't wear a regular bra due to the cutouts at the arms). Speaking of those cutouts, I was worried that they would look terrible and that the placement would highlight that little bulge that some of us (who, me?) have at our armpit. Not the case at all, and that cutout is actually really flattering! I do think that the dress ran just the tiniest bit big (or maybe just more true-to-size than most formal dresses which seem to run small!). I could have worn the size 10, but it would have been super tight. I would suggest going against the grain and ordering your second size as a size down for this one.

THE best dress I've ever worn.
I was completely covered for a work party yet so sexy. The material is matte, thick and super stretchy. I don't have many curves but this dress just emphasized everything in the right way. I cannot even believe how much I loved it. Fantastic for a straight up and down/boyish body. It's not going to work if you have big arms or very broad shoulders. The cut of the DRESS is very forgiving but the open armpit design of the attached shrug snuggles up to the soft part of your under arm. If thats a trouble spot, just don't do it. Its not meant to cover fat arms, its meant to show off skinny ones. My dress had a busted clasp that dug into my neck. I have to say that that was my only disappointment because Ive read that comment several times and assumed RTR would be repairing the dresses but.. obviously not a deal breaker. I stopped feeling it after my first glass of wine. LOVE this dress.
