Not quite dressy enough...

Super cute dress for a less formal cocktail party, however, I went to a gala and it didn't quite hit the mark. FYI-I wear a size 4 and this dress is in a medium long...so runs a little small. Overall, it was cute, but not what I was looking for. Oh and it's make up that slinky spandex material (in case you're curious).

Love love love

The dress is so perfect! The fabric is heavy enough that you don't need spanx or anything to hold you in. I felt so classy and beautiful and received compliments all night. Wish I owned it!

So many compliments

Loved this dress! Got so many compliments. It is very form fitting though and spanks can't really be worn underneath. It was hard to get on after doing your makeup because of the turtleneck and not a lot of stretch. I def needed some help getting it over my head....I do wish it was 2" longer. I wore the small long, and I'm 5'9 and wore a 3" heel and the dress was still about and inch to an inch and a half off the ground. Still loved it though!

There was a slip connected underneath which hid my flaws

Fit was perfect. I'm almost 5'6 and wore 3.5 inch heels and weigh roughly 128.. Typically a size 4. I got so many compliments all night. I was warm and comfortable.

Amazing experience! Will use RTR all the time now :)

The fit is perfection! Very tight-like second skin tight so no big meals the day you wear this dress! I was able to dance in it all night long! It does run small bc I usually wear an XS.

Told I was the most elegant looking woman in the room

The dress was wonderful. I am very small and can often fit in girls clothes, the XS small was snug without being too tight. I needed help getting the turtle neck over my head. i put the dress on before doing hair and makeup, if I hadn't both would have been ruined. The slip did ride up a lot while I was dancing but it was an acceptable trade off for being able to move so freely because of the slip. I felt beautiful and comfortable the entire night, I am glad I rented this dress for my winter ball.

Sleek

I didn't end up wearing this dress because I was sent another gown along with this one and choose to wear the other gown instead. But I did love the look of this gown it was too long on me so if you are a short girl you want to wear some nice heels! My one disappointment/reason for not wearing it was because the armpits of the dress smell a little of B.O. And I'm a freak about smell so I couldn't deal with that all night long. I'm a little sad that I won't be able to rent a long sleeve dress in the future for this reason because I assume it's just something that'll happen with a dress with sleeves. Just being honest with you! Overall my other dress was fabulous and this dress is very sleek and slimming.

My first RTR experience, definitely not the last!

I wore this dress for a fancy birthday dinner out in Columbus OH during the Arnold. I wanted something sexy but also warm and comfortable. This dress is PERFECT! Form fitting and sexy but SO comfy. I received so many compliments! Be sure to put the dress on before styling your hair and putting on makeup, it is kind of hard to pull over your head. Also, wear a black bra with it. I wore a nude bra and although in person you couldn't see it, it showed up in pictures with a high flash. I am considering buying this dress I loved it so much!

What a dress!

Angelina Jolie leg slit action with a trendy turtleneck. What's not to love? I wore it to work and then out with my friends. Loved every minute of it. Dress is fully lined and feels great on.

I wore this piece for a hair expo I had to model for. This dress is so comfortable, form fitting and chic. Even tho I am 5'10 the length was great and it actually elongated me giving the illusion I was 3" taller than normal without my 5" pumps

Chic, classy, and comfortable!

Wore to the wedding of a layer and a burlesque dancer in upstate New York in November. Felt as though it would be too tight going over my head but ended up fitting like a glove. I am 5'4 and about 120 pounds and the small fit perfectly and the length was complimented with four inch booties. Such a fun garment to wear - I miss the dress and wish I owned it!

Fit like a glove!

This dress was a perfect fit. I rented the Medium in regular (I'm 5'9) I the long was not available so I worn flat booties instead of heels. The long would have been perfect! The fit is tight and I did have to suck in my pudgy belly because my spanx were too noticeable in the back. Overall the dress was perfect.

The entire process was seamless---From choosing the dress; payment; shipping; tracking and wearing!

This is my 2nd time ordering with RTR, the first time my dressed was delayed and didn't arrive in time for my event. I was soooo heartbroken. But was compensated for the inconvenience and decided to give them a try for my birthday dinner. The process was pretty seamless from choosing the dress; to checkout; to shipping and tracking. I was apprehensive that the dress wouldn't be delivered on time but I was pleasantly mistaken. The packaging was very smart. Essentially a garment bag that doubles as packaging for shipping. The dress fits true to size. My measurements are 36-27-39 and I typically wear a size 6 or s/m. I opted to wear the medium because I do have hips and needed the dress lining/slip underneath to lie flat. The lining was somewhat annoying- not really sure what purpose it serves the dress- the dress is made of thick material and is not transparent. ALSO KEY TO NOTE- there is no zipper you have to put the dress on over your head. And the room for the neck is rather narrow with little give. I would strongly suggest to put on the dress first before hair and makeup (and wear a robe while getting dressed). I didn't wear shapewear just had a no carb diet a couple days prior to the dinner. I received nothing but compliments from random strangers the whole evening. My boyfriend could not keep his hands off of me (always a good indicator) !!!!! The slit is really a show stopper. I felt absolutely beautiful!!! You will not be disappointed. Lovely experience will rent again.

Perfect for a "Black Tie Optional" event. Dresses up or down & went great with my husband's tux.

It was very comfortable and stretchy. I am 3 months post twins, so I wore Spanx but otherwise I wouldn't have. Was tight-fitting in itself. The only thing to note is there is a mesh liner that kept riding up all night.

Perfect black number!

I waited for the perfect time to wear this dress! The material is very stretchy and the split is perfect for an evening out! I paired it with black heels and a gold clutch. However, you can pair it with silver accessories as well but a silver pump would be best if you choose to do so. Regardless this one is a hit and you will feel comfortable all night :)

Great Evening Dress

This dress was amazing and made me feel sexy I am 5'1 and wore 3 inch heels and it was good . I think the medium would have fit a little better but it is a snug fit which holds everything in the right places. Will rent again .

Comfortable and classy!

Awesome dress! I wore this to a November wedding at a barn setting. This dress was perfect for the occasion...extremely comfortable material and easy to walk/sit in. I received many compliments. Also, very easy to accesorize! The only con is that it was slightly difficult to pull over my head...you might want to apply your make up beforehand to avoid smudging. Other than that, loved it!

Great dress!!

I wore this in a large regular partly because that is all that was available to rent. I am 5'5, 145 & wear a 36D. I could of worn the medium, I think it depends on how tight you want this dress to be. I also was on the verge of needing a long. Still looked great, and I would rent again

Elegant and sophisticated

The dress was amazing. It fit like a glove. There is a big difference in length between a regular and a long so if you like your dress touching the floor I suggest a long (I'm 5'7"). The only negative about the dress is you have to put it on before getting hair and makeup done because the neck is snug and doesn't go over your head easily. As always, a great RTR experience.

Show Stopper

The dress fits incredibly well. It fits to body in a very sexy way while remaining classy and glamorous. The slit in the side adds that xtra kick that makes it so eye catching! And with right heels it's incredible... It was comfortable and easy to dance in. I received compliment after compliment in it. My husband loved it! Only thing to be careful with is the tight turtle neck if you choose to put on makeup or do your hair before putting on dress. I would definitely rent this dress again! It's even worth owning. I

LOVED this dress!

I wore this dress to a black tie auto show event and couldn't be happier with the fit. The turtleneck was very tight so I would recommend doing your makeup after you put the dress on. Very comfortable and true to size. Would love to purchase this dress!

Wanted to keep this sexy black number!

This dress was perfect for a James Bond themed 30th birthday party! The material was thick and accentuates all your curves in the right ways! I preserved the small and the xs but liked the fit of the xs better. (I love a tight dress) The slit adds a certain sexy something. I was a little afraid about the length since I'm on the shorter side, but with heels it was perfect. It was also very warm, the party was in December in New Orleans. We ate outside with jackets and I was very comfortable.

Perfect winter NYC night out dress!

Wore this in NYC during the holiday season to dinner, a show, and a night out! It is so classic and simple, which makes it not too dressy, yet can easily be dressed up! I wore it with black tights and tall boots. Loved it!

Sophisticated and perfect!

This gown is stunning! I wore it to a Marine Corps Ball and it couldn’t have been more perfect. It literally fits like a glove and compliments your physique. I ordered SR, alternate size XSR - both sizes worked. However, I went with the XSR due to the length. I wore 4 inch heels and the material barely touched the floor. This is a gown I would purchase.

Clingy jersey dress= classy and sexy

Hugs curves. Can wear normal bra. Extremely comfortable. The regular length was fine but i think the long length would have been even more dramatic. Fun dress for a nice christmas dinner with the husband.

I rented this dress for my 22 year old daughter. She loved it and looked exquisite in it.

The dress fits beautifully! It is a gorgeous dress to wear . It looks elegant and stunning on. My daughter weights 105 pounds and with her heels on She stood about five foot eight inches. It runs a size small and we order the shorter length and it was the perfect length with 4 inche heels.

LOVED this dress.

This dress is TIGHT. I am usually a 0 or x/s and I could barely get my arms through the XS, so I wore the small. Loved it. You def. want to be a svelt person to wear it- I would assume even spanx would show through. (it's that tight!) Be prepared to wear it through hair and makeup because there is no zip- you pull your head through the neck. Overall I loved this dress. It was comfortable, gorgeous, classy- couldn't have asked for more.
