Love, Love, Love this dress. The perfect little black dress with glitz. Easy to dress up or down.
Fits a little large. I could have worn the 8 but decided to go with some extra breathing room. Very flattering on. Wish I could buy this one!

Comfortable and flattering.
I have an hourglass shape with a little tummy leftover from baby, and this was really flattering. It hugs all the right places and is sturdy enough to provide some support. It was also easy to get into and comfortable. I'm 5'4 and the length was just right, though I would've liked it a little shorter I definitely needed heels.

A beautiful dress. It fit great but I didn't end up wearing it. Felt to" businessey"
Great fit, pretty dress. It was a little more "office party" than "red carpet" so I didn't wear this option to my event, but it was a lovely dress nonetheless.

I wore this to a New Year's Eve party and got tons of complements.
I really liked this dress. I wish my backup size had been available, as this ran a little large for me. The fabric was forgiving and thick enough to hide a lot, although I did choose to wear spanx with this. The colors were very easy to match and were sophisticated and beautiful. The dress was also quite comfortable. The straps stayed up and the skirt stayed down far enough, even after a few rounds of drinking games.

The sequins made me feel like a mermaid!
Very flattering cut and the sequins create an hourglass figure even if you don't have curves. Material was thick to hide any imperfections, but not too hot that you can't wear during the summer. Sequins also did not annoy my armpits after dancing. I would definitely rent again. If you are a narrow boy shape like me and a fan of the classic shift dress fit- this dress fit perfect.

Perfect for a cocktail party!
This dress is great for a cocktail party because it's fancy without being too formal. I am 5'3 and 125 lbs. I like the overall fit of the size 4, but it was WAY too big in the chest area. So I wore the size 2 instead. It was tighter than I wanted it to be, especially in the tummy area, but at least the fabric wasn't floating in the chest area. Notes: I couldn't have worn the size 4 even if I wanted to because it smelled like body odor in the armpit areas. Very disappointing! This dress would have been more flattering on a fuller chested woman.

Curvy and fun
Form fitting and gives nice curves. Sequins with the blue undertones make it fun but still dressy. Low enough to give it a little sexiness but not too revealing. Needed to wear spanx underneath. Fit my normal size by maybe a tad bit snug.

The 12 may have been a TOUCH big but overall fit great! The fabric is thick, but it's stretchy and comfortable. The structure of the dress and the cut is super flattering. Really loved the dress!

I received so many compliments on this dress! I loved the emerald beading especially.
This dress hugs you in all of the right places. It is also a good fit for larger bust sizes, as I'm a 34DD. Love the fact that I could wear a regular bra!!!

Fits nicely, good quality. The dress is more beautiful in person. Something to deviate a little from your classic black dress.

Great dress, perfect fit!
I wore this dress to a formal event at the zoo. It fit perfectly and was absolutely gorgeous. My only caution is to avoid wearing this in extreme heat. The party was outside during the summer, on a very hot evening, and I could feel the zipper against my back. Otherwise - I absolutely would wear it again.

I thought this dress was beautiful and received a lot of compliments. I wore this for a bachelorette party and it was comfortable to wear on the dance floor. This dress flatters an hourglass shape.

Great wedding guest dress
Very cute dress and pretty comfortable. Runs a little big though. Normally I wear a 2 or 4. I wore the 2 in this dress and it was a bit big in the hips and midsection.

Beautiful and comfy!
Dress was beautiful and so comfortable. It fit true to size, I could have worn the 8 without a problem but the 10 was just a little more comfortable. I have worn a 10 in all other RTR dresses so definitely size down for your backup size. Sorry no pictures - we completely forgot. :)

This dress was so comfortable, I had no concerns about dancing all night!
Runs a little longer (to the knee) on shorter women. Great if you are looking for a comfortable, conservative open that you won't have to worry about riding up. A little clingy, so if you have lumpy bits (like me), a smoother works great.

Just enough sparkle and shine!
Dresses arrived the day before the wedding as promised! I chose to size down as the reviews mentioned this dress ran big. I actually fit nicely into the 6 without issue, but opted for the 8 instead only because I felt the hemline was slightly less restricting and better suited for dancing. The dress is beautiful in person and the color was gorgeous!

Very comfortable, sexy fit
Loved the fit of this dress, the color, pretty much everything about it. It was a great length, even with my booty (which normally makes short dresses reeeeally short). Only downside was that it did ride up a lot. I'm not sure if a size up or down might have helped with that.

Sparkle without the scratch!
I rented this for my NYE party a few years back. Unfortunately the only photo I have of it that you can see the dress in is of me in the back of a group shot (tall girl problems). For being so tall, I thought this was a great length. While I love a sparkly dress, that usually comes with scratchiness and being uncomfortable. I was pleasantly surprised that this wasn't scratchy at all as all of the shine is in the thread. This dress was also SO comfy. I wore it with black tights since it was December in upstate NY. Super cute. Definitely recommend.

Wore this dress for a girls' night out in Vegas - it did not disappoint! Felt fabulous all night!
The other user reviews were super helpful. As others mentioned, I found that it runs a little large. I usually wear a size 6 but ordered a size 4 as a backup - so glad I did as it was the one I ended up wearing. The detailing is fab but was hard for me to catch in my photos (zoomed in on one of the pics to try and capture). Very comfortable, too!

This dress gave me curves!
Loved this dress! I am short and short waisted- this dress gave me curves! The fabric was great for a fall wedding in New England, and the cut allowed me to wear my regular bra. A little longer than mid thigh length on me, but that just meant I coulde wear a higher heel! Overall, highly, highly recommend!

Super flattering dress
While this dress is not a showstopper, it's very flattering once on, with the right shoes and jewelry. It's nice that you can wear a normal bra with it, although I would recommend a body shaping system under the dress because it shows every curve. It's easy to dance and sit down in it. I felt very pretty in this dress, and I recommend it to other women. I wish I could have kept it!

Fun dress!
The dress runs a little large. The 10 was able to zip up fine but felt very restrictive while on. I ended up wearing the 12, which was a little loose, but overall fit well. Easy to dance in and you can wear a regular bra with it!

I absolutely loved this dress and so did everyone who saw it!! I received many compliments due to the fact it is so different, but also VERY well-made. I wish I would have received a smaller size, since this fabric DOES STRETCH.

This dress fit true to size and I received a lot of compliments on it. Definitely recommend!
The material was heavier than I expected. We were in Cabo for a wedding and it was 85F degrees so it felt hotter than I wanted it to but the dress was beautiful! My hips are a little wider than most at a size 4 I think and it did cause the mid section to bunch up a little but the size 6 was too big in the waist and made the bunching look worse.

Mother Daughter date night!
This dress made me feel like a million bucks! As a 38DD I was wary of renting. The dress fit beautifully and I received many compliments. I guess that's the difference between quality and off the rack. Sorry, but it will not allow me to upload the photo.

Gorgeous dress!
I wore this dress for a holiday party. I got so many compliments on it! The teal sequins really make this dress stand out from being a regular black dress. The material is thick & very good quality, and really accentuates your curves. I have a very athletic body, smaller waist, big boobs, and a muscular lower body with a booty. It hugged everything just right, but because the material is thick it doesn't show everything. I usually wear an 8 because of my chest & wider back, but the 6 fit perfect.

Comfortable Mermaid Inspired Dress!
This dress had some stretch to it and was very comfortable to sit in for long periods of time. I was able to wear a bra with it just fine. I ended up wearing the smaller of the two sizes, but I wouldn't say it runs particularly large. Just true to size with some stretch in the fabric.

Right amount of sparkle to stand out on a sea of LBD
I wore this dress for a wedding that started early afternoon and stretched into the night. This dress made the transition perfectly. It looked elegant during the day and fabulous and sparkly at night. The sequin panel gave it a glam touch without being boring or looking like the other dresses. I use the size 10 but it felt bigger, the 12 was too big on me. The dress was very flattering and show off my curves and it didn't seem to cling on my midsection. Also, I liked the fact you could wear it with a regular bra and show a little bit of cleavage. The fabric felt thick and was not translucent at all on the photos. The only thing I noticed on the dress is that the seam looked a little worn down towards the back. I also paired the dress with the Tova blue Mohawk earrings and no necklace and it looked fabulous.

Nice, but not stunning for a shorter person.
I was really excited to get this dress, but it didn't meet my expectations. I'm not sure if it was too big (hard to believe) or if it was the material, but I (and others) noticed the sequins in front midsection were bunching together and making my tummy look poochy. The dress, even the 4, is long. I felt a little matronly at 5'5". However the non-sequin material is nice and thick so it smooths out things in all the right places. I think maybe I was just a tad bit too short for the dress.

Very flattering lines!
I actually ended up wearing a different dress (Trina Turk - Portrait of Elegance) because I needed to have my shoulders covered and didn't have the right wrap or cardi for Reba. I also had a tough time picking jewelry (should have let RtR do it)! But this dress fits in all the right places and the lines make you look long and very lean. I'm usually between a 4 and a 6, but the 4 fit beautifully! I might not have picked it online, but I tried it in the showroom and wow, it looked good. The front panel is prettier in person.

Classic cut with enough extra omph for a formal event.
Well tailored dress and runs true to size. Wore to a gala with black tie suggested attire. Was the perfect balance of work and formal. Tried on several dresses to find the right balance for this work gala. Classic length and cut accentuate the figure while still remaining professional. The front panel really made it look like a more expensive dress than it is. Good design, fabric and quality.

Loved the details on this dress! Hugs curves perfectly but not too much!
The details on this dress up close are gorgeous! Everyone complimented me all night. It hugged my curves perfectly and was very flattering - especially in the stomach and arms - two areas I'm very cautious to show. It was the perfect dress for a day time wedding - a little shimmer but not too much for day time. Transitioned great for a late night cocktail dress. The length was perfect - but I'm tall. If you're shorter than 5'8'' it may be at your knees. But it bunches great around the waist if you like it that way, so I was able to bunch and scrunch it and make it shorter. Aim for one size smaller than usual so it's tight like it should be.

The dress was in great condition and was great for my husband's company Christmas party.
A tad large though I did lose some weight recently so I probably could have worn the size 10. The dress was very comfortable and though I wore a strapless bra I could have worn a regular bra easily. Dresses for a large bust (I am really a G) are hard to find but this one really worked. It reads blue in the photos but its really green!
