I was unsure of the material bc it seemed very slinky, but it was a high quality material that fit very nicely. The length was perfect. I ordered the long length thankfully bc once I added heals it was perfect. The regular length would have been too short with shoes.

Felt like I belonged on the Red Carpet!

Overall fit: True to Size

I loved this dress, definitely one of my favorites. I wore this to prom, and stood out among the usual, traditional dresses. No complaints other than to be aware that the cut in the dress runs high, but looked sexy and sophisticated. Only other thing that I didn't love was the fit, spanx are a MUST, even with a flat tummy. It highlights EVERYTHING, including panty lines. Other than that, I would recommend 110%!

Great statement dress!

Definitely a unique dress that will grab attention at any event. I paired the dress with a gold ear cuff and received compliments all night on how chic I looked. I ordered the 4 and the 6 long and they both fit almost exactly the same, with the 6 being a tiny bit longer, yet still didn't hit the floor. This dress was amazing and I never wanted to take it off!

The fit was perfect. There's a flap on the one shouldered side that is a bit odd, but I didn't mind it. The dress was elegant, and stood out from the usual LBD. It wasn't too hot because of the sleeve. It was perfect!

The International Auto Show's Charity Preview

Size worn: 10R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
My favorite dress of all time! I wore this to the Int. Auto Show Charity Preview and when I showed friends the photo, they said I could pass for a model! This dress is so flattering if you are curvy. I am a 10-12 and went with the 10. I received compliments all night. It's comfortable, elegant and sexy. My husband loved the dress and it's the perfect dress to rent because I know I wouldn't have had the courage to buy it. It has a high slit, but if you like to show off your legs, it's the perfect dress! Couldn't have loved it more and as always RTR came through for me!!!

This was such a fun dress to wear- both edgy and elegant at the same time!

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was super comfy. The material was really stretchy which is so nice. One thing of note- I can't tell if the dress runs big or mine was just stretched out because even with a C cup the bust was a little big. Not anything that anyone other than myself noticed, but I would recommend ordering your size and a size down, not up, for the second size. Another thing to note, and you'll always have to deal with this with long dresses, but plan to wear really high heels with this dress! You can see my stats and I wore a 3" heel and it was still a little long. Nothing unmanageable but you don't want to trip :)

Elegant formfitting dress!

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I loved this dress! The material was very comfortable and fit true to size. While it's form fitting and has a one sleeved cut, it's still very classy and elegant because of the length and color. Another pro, you can easily accessorize it with big earrings of any color. The only downside would be that it was a little long on me-- so beware if you're 5' 3"! I had to hold my dress up while dancing so it didn't drag on the floor. Regardless, this was perfect for the black tie event and I would definitely recommend renting it.

Very flattering- sexy yet classy! Wish it was longer!

Size worn: 10L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I absolutely loved this dress.. But I was unable to wear it for my event. I am very picky with the length of my clothes. I am about 5'9 so I got the 10L and without heels the dress just skimmed the ground and as soon as I put on heels it wasn't to the ground. I do not like my feet showing when wearing a long dress. But other than the length the dress was very flattering- sexy yet classy. I would definitely recommend wearing spanx with this dress.

I got looks all night!

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wore this to my senior homecoming and everyone couldn't stop staring at me! I fell in love with this dress. I honestly was a little hesitant at first to rent the dress because of the material, but there were no problems except for the butt area. You can see the panty lines, but that can easily be fixed with the right type of undergarments. Another thing to keep in mind is that I found the dress to be slightly bigger in the chest area, and I had a liiittle bit of room to spare in the back. I think I could have gone a size smaller, but better safe than sorry. And I'm not sure how relevant this is, but I'm short, so this dress was long on me. Maybe if I got a smaller size it would be shorter? I can't really speak on this. I just was scared that I would step on the dress and rip it, but not that it necessarily was bothersome. This dress definitely doesn't need a lot of accessories; It makes a statement on it's own. I wore some drop earrings (this you can get creative with), red heels, and a magazine clutch. I really love this dress, I didn't want to return it!

Great low-matainence dress! Never had to think about it over the course of the night - just had fun!

Size worn: 0R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
Form-fitting, lightweight, comfortable material. Chose this dress as a modest option for a fall wedding - got soooo many compliments! PRO: A really easy wear, and a safe bet for ordering online! Stretching material, and covers your back so pretty much any strapless bra will work. Didn't need to tape anything, and hardly needed any accessories. Note: Size 0R was a good inch or more shorter than size 2R, but not a whole lot tighter.

I loved the way this dress fit- i am usually a 4 or 6 and wound up wearing the 6 because the sleeved arm fit better. It was very flattering, hugged in all the right places. It was perfect for my black tie affair in NYC. i topped it with a hat and got a ton of compliments. Definitely can't wear any underwear.

I wore this to my company's annual party and the theme was James Bond. It was the perfect dress!

Size worn: 2L
Rented for: Party
I ordered the 4R and 2L and ended up going with the 2L. The 4R was pretty baggy in the bust area. The 2L fit perfect. The fabric is very stretchy and it definitely hugs your stomach/waist area so be prepared! Overall this was an amazing dress and I was so sad when I had to return it. I highly recommend it!

I received compliments all night! So comfortable, a great dress to dance in!

Size worn: 10L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was very comfortable. The jersey knit allowed for breathing room. I'm 5'11' and the long hit at my ankles, which was disappointing. The slit went up to my high thigh, but it didn't ride up, so it worked. I did have to wear spanks because this dress shows EVERYTHING. I also wore a black strapless bra for extra support because this dress doesn't have any. I was so happy with this dress, I'd rent it again!

Simple but Dramatic

Size worn: 0R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wore this to a holiday event and thought it fit the tone of the event well. It's not "super formal" which is nice, if you're attending something you where you don't want to worry about being too overdressed, but you still want to dress up and make a statement. I was pleasantly surprised by the length. I am 5'2" and I wore normal (about 3") heels and did not have to tape the hem, nor did it drag at all. The bust and the sleeve were more baggy than I expected, and I wish the sleeve fit tighter so I could wear a jewelry cuff over it. I did have to fold the end of the sleeve in, otherwise it would have been awkwardly long. I think the bust was just stretched out, probably from women far more well-endowed than I am. I had to use fashion tape to hold it up so it did not sag (which was fine, it did not look weird once I taped it). Prepare to either wear seamless underwear or no underwear because the dress is tight through the midsection and butt, with a fabric that reveals all lines. The leg slit is high, but not scary high (well, if you have no undewear on, maybe it would be!). All in all I liked it and I did receive a handful of compliments on it!

Having the option to get a second size for free was AMAZING. Dress fit perfect.

Size worn: 0R
Rented for: Formal Affair
Ordered a 0R and 2R. What helped me was looking at other girls photos in the dress and comparing their height and weight to mine. I ended up wearing a 0R and it fit perfect. Length was perfect, the fabric was a stretchy material so it was extremely comfortable. Had I been smaller in the bust area, it wold have been a little big up top. But I am a 34D and it fit remarkable. Not one bad thing to say. The 2R fit great as well.. However the length added a few extra inches, so I went with the 0R. It was my first time ordering from here and I will continue to do so, and share with all my friends.

Didn't want to send it back!!! The fabric is a very comfortable stretchy material that hugs your curves! The length was perfect for me with 3 inch heels. I went with the 2 to have a more snug fit in the bust, the 4 seemed to be a little stretched out up top, but really I could have gone with either size and been fine! Its extremely comfortable to wear for dinner & dancing all night long! Rent this one- you won't be sorry!

I have to say when the dress first arrived, I was concerned about the weight of the fabric and the tight fit. Wearing Spanx was a must. I ended up really happy with the dress at the black tie event I went to. The design made it a lot more exciting than just a black dress but it also allowed me to wear great accessories without being too over the top. I got tons of compliments on it.

Fits great (didn't need Spanx!). You will definitely need a good strapless bra though - I am a 36B/C and don't always need one depending on the cut of the dress, but the shape of the dress looks a million times better with one! Would definitely rent again!

Great for Petites

Size worn: 0R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I usually am a solid size 2 but often do need to go smaller in dresses due to being petite. dress is VERY stretchy which will accommodate curves. Material is thin, not substantial enough to hide much in the way of flaws. May want to consider shape wear. Length is perfect for shorter girls - I was able to wear only 3" inch heels (I am 5'3") and the length was perfect.

Chic, a bit large, easy to walk/move in.

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I loved the style; unfortunately the 0R was gone and so I had to get the 2R. The bust was a bit large for me so I had to pin it under the arm (luckily that was hidden by the longer material over the shoulder). Easy to walk/dance in, got a lot of compliments. Note: this will show every line/lump in good lighting when in person, the fabric is stretchy so very comfortable but will show it all. Photographs well.
