Felt like $1 million bucks!!!
Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
The dress fit good. It was waiting for me as I arrived home after work. I went with the size 10. It was a little snug in the bodice, but you need that to get the hourglass figure. The size 12 just didn't hit my curves right. The material is like a gabardine fabric with a slight texture. If you look close you will see it. If fit perfect everywhere else. The armholes are the right size and I didn't have to adjust the dress throughout the night. I wore a regular bra which did not peek through anywhere, and no spanx. I didn't feel I needed it. Make sure you have the right underwear so you don't have pantylines. I also rented a cuff and felt it had it's day with this dress. I did not rent a necklace because I didn't want to take away from the gorgeous neckline. I already rented again with RTR. It is so easy!!!!! Love it!!! I feel like all the added photos from everyone really helped my selection, so I just had to share!! This is a great dress.

The material is stretchy, yet fitted. Very comfortable. Loved the neckline. Size up if you have a full bust.

Very elegant LBD for a charity fundraiser.
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
The 4 had a little extra room on top and was a little big in the waist. The 2 was better on top but didn't look as nice through the hips so I ended up wearing the 4. Someone with a bigger bust would likely find this dress true to size. The dress has a nice texture and a little stretch. It's very comfortable to wear and the length was just right for me since it hit me just below the knee. It's hard to tell from the picture but that little slit is right in the middle. My only issue was with the little internal straps used for securing the dress to a hanger. I would recommend pinning them to the inside of the dress so they don't come out. The rental experience was very easy. I originally rented the 4 with a 6 as backup. I called RTR when I thought the 4 might be too big and they sent the 2 overnight. I will definitely do this again.

Cute, classic dress, doesn't show too much and doesn't fit too tight.
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Date
This fit well. I usually wear a 4 or a 6 the 4 was a little loose on me which was nice since I wore it to a seven course wine pairing. It was classy and a good length (to my knee) and doesn't show any real cleavage or leg.

Classy and simple
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This wasn't the knockout dress I was hoping for, but it was a very easy-to-wear look (no outrageous bras, etc needed) that was flattering and fun to pair with my more out-there accessories. Perfect for a night that's not YOUR night but you still want to look pulled together.

Perfect LBD: ideal balance of ladylike and sexy.
Size worn: 14
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
Fits like a dream, stretchy and forgiving but holds its shape well. I'm a 36DDD, and the top fit perfectly (without any unflattering compression). The neckline was gorgeous and shows off cleavage without looking trashy. The fabric is crepe textured, which I did not expect, but it felt and looked great on. Hemline hit right at my knee and made me look taller and leaner. I'm a standard size 14 and this fit me everywhere without bulges or pulling. Shoulders are cut wide enough to cover a bra without having to worry that a strap will peek out. I'm seriously thinking about buying it. A sensational LBD.

Great dress. Got lots of compliments.
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
It was a perfect dress for a work event in which I would be on stage. The neckline was sexy but subtle and the dress hugged the curves, but not too tightly. Probably wouldn't be my first choice for an event where I wanted to strut my stuff a little more - but a perfect dress for an affair that called for conservative classy.

This dress fit me well! As someone with bigger hips and a smaller waist, I noticed that it hugged my hips and gave me room in the midsection. This is something I would wear again to an office party or family affair!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large

This dress definitely runs large, so size down if you can. A more conservative neckline than I am used to, or expected, but would be good for people with larger chests who aren't into hanging the ladies out there. Nice fabric and good stretch.

I rented a size 6 and size 8, ended up wearing my normal size 8. It was comfortable and flattering, and I received many complements! It hit right around my knees, which was a perfect length.

Great, basic but interesting black dress.
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
Ordered at 2 and a 4, 2 was still too large in the waist and chest area (straps didn't fit close to body). Length and fit through legs was great. More conservative than I was expecting but as this was for a work event, it worked for me.

Runs big and fit is very conservative
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I ordered this dress in my size (6) and smaller (4). Even the 4 was too big for me. However, I'm also a little less curvy and busty so while I wasn't swimming in it, it kind of hung on me and looked matronly. My take on the dress is that it would be very sexy on someone who is a little more voluptuous, or might be a perfect dress for an older woman as again, the slit and neckline are quite conservative.

Classy and Flattering
Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this to my brother's wedding and received a ton of compliments. The neckline is unique and makes the dress versatile: It can be dressed up (shoes and accessories) for a more formal event, or dressed down for a daytime business event. The fabric is a bit textured, which I didn't realize but liked, and it offers enough stretch to look like it was built for my body. It was super flattering and comfortable. I'd love to rent it again!

Fit perfectly. Very pretty and just the right amount of sexy in the neckline. Wore for a night at the theater and dinner in LA. Paired with Kate Spade grey animal print peep toe sling backs. Thanks RTR! So fun to have a "new" dress for every occasion.

Beautiful dress
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this dress just to try it on and see if I liked it. I have a family wedding in April and wanted to be sure I liked it enough to wear it. I ordered the 6 and 8, the 8 fit me on top but the hips are a bit to big, I have very narrow hips and very skinny legs! But I liked it so much I am going to order again, my husband loved it, thought it was sexy but classic too, can't wait to wear it in April!! I am also trying to shed winter weight so hopefully the 6 will work for me in a few months

I didn't wear this dress b/c the size 6 didn't fit me a snugly as I would've liked. I also rented a blazer to wear on top of it so I needed that tighter fit. If it weren't for that though, I'd have definitely worn this dress! It's beautiful and the top is cut just right. My 36D fit perfectly in the size 6. Will have to rent this for another event in the future.

Super LBD
Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is a nice departure from the typical LBD. The top detail makes it stand out, while maintaining a classic look. I wore this dress to a winter wedding, and spiced it up with ornate earrings, bracelets, and shoes. My full-chest was comfortably covered, as I danced the night away.

i loved the way this dress fit! unfortunately, the zipper separated from the bottom up in the middle go the dinner at the reception. SO EMBARRASSING! RTR wouldn't do anything because i didn't have pictures of the damage. Really? Not reining this dress again for fear I get that one again.

Great dress for a work event
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I rented this dress for a work holiday party and paired it with the Ben-Amun Emerald City Necklace and Crislu Laurel Green Drop Earrings. The dress was appropriate for a work party. The neckline is conservative. The overall fit runs large -- I usually wear an 8 and wore a 6 in this dress. Overall, I was happy with the dress for the occasion, but wouldn't want the same dress for an occasion where I would want a more fitted look.

I was pretty. But not the dress for me - I usually wear a 12 - and got the 14 as a back up and both were too tight across my midsection.

It hit right above my knee and was form fitting, but not to tight. There is a nice give to the fabric. I liked the different silhouette of the neckline and it was easy to dress up with fun jewelry. I would highly recommend for a date or party!

I wore this to be a bridesmaid in my friend's wedding - she had just asked that we wear knee-length black dresses. I thought this dress looked kind of plain on the hanger, but once I got it on - WOW! That neckline really makes the dress, and the front slit just adds something extra. I got so many compliments that evening! Very comfortable for someone like me with a larger bust, although there was a fair amount of cleavage, so be warned if you're not comfortable with that. Overall, great comfortable dress!

I usually wear a 4 but order a 6 as backup. I wish I'd gotten the 2 for this one though. The bust seemed to be made for someone much larger than me! I made it work but would have liked to try a smaller size.
