The dress hugs perfectly while still being stretchy and forgiving.
Hit just above the knees, which is nice for a moderate-tall girl (5'8"). The fabric was very breathable.

This was a classic dress that I felt comfortable and elegant wearing.
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.

Loved this dress!
This is definitely one of those dresses that looked way better on than on the hanger. It fit beautifully and I kept it simple with red and black earrings and a pair of Christian Loubitans! Will rent this one again.

Love the neckline of this dress!
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!

The details make the dress!
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!

This dress was comfortable and easy to wear- I was even dancing in it! Fit TTS and very elegant.
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!

It was not the dress for me. I need a little more give.
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.

Great dress for a work event
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.

Broken zipper!
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. Got lots of compliments.
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.

Super LBD
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.

Beautiful dress and fit
Amazing fit. Great fabric, gorgeous, unique neck line. Fits true to size. Sexy without being too showy/short. Fits perfectly with spanx (long enough and enough coverage). Flattering on a curvy figure.

Classy and simple
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.

I picked this as a back up dress and it ran far too large. Stuck with my original ail dress.
Runs really large, especially in the hips. I'd suggest going down a size.

Dress was just as pictured. Looks much better on than it does on the hanger.
I wore the dress for a black tie affair and dressed it up with jewelry and patent leather heels. Achieved an elegant, sophisticated look.

Perfect LBD!
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.

Cute, classic dress, doesn't show too much and doesn't fit too tight.
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.

Very elegant LBD for a charity fundraiser.
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.

I ended up wearing another RTR dress but this one was lovely and VERY comfortable.
The material is stretchy, yet fitted. Very comfortable. Loved the neckline. Size up if you have a full bust.

Great, basic but interesting black dress.
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.

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.

Felt like $1 million bucks!!!
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.

I love this dress, it hugs perfectly without being too tight or uncomfortable. The material is very light, but still works for a semi-formal/cocktail event. The cut is super flattering, and I really regret not getting my picture taken in it.

Great fit for evening wedding in DC!
Received lots of compliments. The fabric was incredibly comfortable but I was pulling it down a bit and twisting the bottom for the slit to line up correctly. Wore with red shoes, silver jewelry and a red clutch for a pop of color.

Classy and Interesting!
This neckline was AWESOME. Make sure you wear spanx if you have things that could be smoothed out. Its a thick fabric but that doesn't mean you shouldn't help things along. Also I was able to wear a regular bra and that that made life happier.

I wore this dress to a wedding. It fit great and it looked fantastic!
I have a large bust, wearing a 34G and it was perfect. It showed off just the right amount of cleavage and fit great. I would recommend this to anyone who needs some coverage in that area.

Gorgeous dress
Rented this for my boyfriends college graduation, love love love the neck detail! He goes to a religious college so the length was just conservative enough-any other event I would have said it was a hair too long and I'm 5'7. The front slit was interesting, overall I really liked this dress it was super classy and makes you look great!

Forgettable
I ordered this as a backup dress for a wedding but went with a dress that was ultimately smaller than I would have liked because this one was too muted. It felt more like a dress I would wear for a work conference because it lacked sex appeal and really did nothing for me. It fit well, just wasn't anything I would wear when trying to look my best.

A knockout LBD
This was a great dress for the quite formal spring wedding I needed to attend! The neckline was gorgeous, and I didn't have a problem with cleavage at all. I couldn't get the slit to sit quite right, but looking at the photo now it makes sense to go over the leg, I think I was trying to put it in the middle which made it pucker a bit (lesson learned, let the dress do its thing). The fabric doesn't have a lot of stretch or give to it, but the crepe material was very forgiving on the curves and with spanx I had a nice curvy figure. It was a fun dress and I got tons of compliments!

The front cut was unique and stood out
I usually wear a 4 or medium but the 2 fit perfectly. Actually it runs a bit large. I wish I had a better picture. The cut was so beautiful. And I belted it to give it an extra pop. It's sexy but in a classic formal way. The material has a thick sweater feel, but it still feels light. I felt I stood out and I loved it.
