Way more goth / sexy than I realized
I didn't take a photo, because I looked like full on Morticia Addams. It was also way sexier than I was going for (a work event) due to how high the slit goes and how body conscious it is.

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.

Super sleek and sexy. Hugs all your curves.
Loved the dress, however, the slip underneath kept riding up. Makeup and hair must be done after you put on the dress. It is too tight to stretch over head after. Glad I got the regular even though I am only 5'3" . Length was perfect, wore 3 inch heels.

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 :)

I wore this dress to a 40th birthday party.
This dress was a showstopper; I wish I owned it! The fabric has just enough stretch and support to make you feel confident all night. I would only choose this dress for a well-ventilated event, because the turtleneck and long sleeves make it quite warm. I'd rent this dress again in a minute.

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 .

Sexy, classic and chic!
Loved this. If you are short the XS is great as it is shorter then the small. I am very curvy and this worked. It's a bit of a challenge to get on and off but once on is stunning.

Elegant dress, perfect for a formal affair!
I had so much fun wearing this dress. It is very flattering for curvy women with slight ruching on the front to help cover problem areas. The slit in the dress is the perfect length and allows the dress to be worm and more formal/work events, without being considered scandalous. I received multiple compliments and had a friend rent the dress two weeks later for a wedding.

Stunning, sexy! I wore it for a sexy skeleton Halloween costume AND out for a date night.
It does run small, very tight fit! I also wish I would have picked the long size, it tended to hike up a bit over my curves through the night.

Glam Halloween Dress
I rented it for a Halloween party, and the dress was perfect for the occasion, since it had this Morticia Addams look to it. Unfortunately I did not wear it, since it was not very flattering on me. I have wide shoulders and the dress just accentuated it. But the quality of the dress is amazing, and the material is very form fitting and stretchy. On someone with the right body time, it's a great dress

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

Super fun event
I am 5,2 and 118 lbs, waist 27 and hip 38 and the extra small fit perfectly! The neck is a little snug to get your head through so take caution when putting it on with your makeup. Other than that it's elegant, simple, and still steals the show. I would absolutely love to wear it again but I don't want to rent the same thing twice and also be an outfit repeater so for now I'll always remember that dress because I can't seem to find another like this one!

This dress is the ultimate LBD! I felt like Angelina Jolie and received compliments all night.
The dress fit pretty true to size but it is form fitting. There is a lining underneath which I felt would shift occassionally, but wasn't annoying enough for me to not want to wear it again. The dress is sophisticated and sexy and it's also comfortable! I wore it to my office holiday party and it was the perfect choice for the event. I didn't want to send it back! It was well worth the year-long wait to rent!

Good cut but fabric thin.
I rented this as a back up dress and did not wear it. The fabric is thin, and this gives it an everyday casual feel. Also was not available in my size so the tight fabric was even less forgiving.

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.

This dress is a show stopper! I got so many compliments from strangers. Get the mystery jewelry too!
The fit of this dress is like glue on your body. It is supposed to be skin tight. Runs a little short for my height (5'8") but definitely does the job. It's a stunning dress. Make sure to get the mystery jewelry as they paired beautifully with the dress!

My favorite rental ever!
This dress was absolutely perfect. The right amount of stretch without being clingy and revealing too much. I was about 20 weeks pregnant when I wore this, and it worked out perfectly - the fabric was such that it would fit well and look equally flattering give or take a few pounds. Just an awesome well-made dress. I plan to rent again when I'm not pregnant!

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

This dress was wonderful! At first it was a little tough to slip over my head but once I got it over...the fit was remarkable. It was extremely comfortable and classy. Loved it and would rent it again!

Overall great, classic, sexy, and comfortable!
This dress is great, wore it to a gala event with an ice show (warm!) with very sparkly crystal nude heels and got lots of compliments. Very tight, high-quality jersey fabric that was flattering. Only things are that the neck opening is VERY tight compared to the rest of the dress, would have loved to wear a size down simply because I had it in the longer length but couldn't get it over my head. Also personally would make the slit about 3" higher if I bought it- drama!-I think perhaps it looks higher on the tall model than average sized me, but it looked elegant as is.

The dress was very comfortable once I was able to get it over my head.
This dress does not leave much to the imagination ! It is TIGHT! I was able to wear shape-wear and pantyhose underneath somehow and I did not think they were super visible . I wore this dress to a holiday party in January in Kentucky and was comfortable and warm. I loved the sleeves ( I could fit my phone in the sleeve and it did not fall out) and the overall comfortably of the dress. Dancing, walking, sitting and using the bathroom were all easy to do in the dress. The biggest challenge was getting the dress over my head,hair and face. You may need help getting the dress off because the neck is SO TIGHT. I felt like I was trying to squeeze a cantaloupe through a pea size opening . If you have big hair or hair that needs to be done the day before your event, you may want to skip this dress. Anything that is on your face will get scrapped off as well( lashes, dead skin etc..) so do your makeup once the dress is on.

prom was lit
This dress was so hard to give back omg it fits so beautifully, it's nice and tight but thick so it smoothes everything down. The slit on the leg looks intimidating on the model but I never felt like it would show anything I didnt want and I was dancing hard the whole night, I even slept in this thing and wore it around target to get clothes to wear early the next morning I still looked good lol. Will say that its not very long of a dress, I'm very short and I really didn't need heels to wear it so I feel like maybe if you were tall and wanted to wear heels it might hit a funny length.

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!

It was a Black Tie Wedding perfect- classy but sexy!
Fit very snug, but hugged the right places. I added a belt to give the illusion of curve, and wore simple strappy heels. I felt like an elegant spy, which was exactly the look I was going for.

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).

This dress made me feel sleek even with flats. Perfect for formal fall/winter occasion.
I sprained my ankle 2 weeks before a wedding, so I needed a dress last minute that I could wear with flats and still walk and potentially dance. (I love to dance). I range from a 2-6 in dresses due to my curves. The SR was great for flats, and the light weight stretch of the material was very sleek and breathable without feeling at all restrictive. (I dance a lot). I was nervous my face would look extra round with my short hair and high neckline, or that it was too early in the fall season to wear. But, being in the mountains, the temperature dropped fast just as the ceremony started, so I was so happy I went with this instead of my backup short dress. The added accent of the slit was sexy but a bit higher than I expected (but made for a good nae nae/whip/stanky leg on the dance floor). I received complements all night and didn't even miss my heels!

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.

The dress was perfect for my sister's rehearsal dinner!
The fit is very form fitting and stretchy. I am tall so I went with the medium long style and it was the perfect length. The slit was high, but there is material underneath that does not make you feel like you are revealing too much. I am happy I chose the mystery bling - the earrings definitely were the perfect addition to the dress.

Most glamorous dress I've ever worn. Felt awesome in it, and it was easy to dance in.
Stressful putting it on (supposed to be really fitted) but super comfy after you get used to it. Has a mesh slip under it, so it feels more structured than it looks. I'm 5'6" and wore 3-4" heels, so I went with the long. Sleeves were a lot more comfortable than I expected, and the fabric wasn't as hot and stuffy as I thought it might be. Really just a perfect dress all around.
