a little long, but still cute
Size worn: XS
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
ordered a small and extra small. i am a petite person, so the xs was still quite a bit long to wear as a shift, so i ended up having to belt it, but it still worked great.

This dress was so much fun to wear!
Size worn: S
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I loved wearing this dress. The fabric is silky smooth against your skin and so comfortable. It is flattering without accentuating any problem areas. You can comfortably wear a normal bra and underwear without worrying about slip ups. As others have mentioned, the fabric in the keyhole likes to flip up, but it really was not a problem. I ordered a medium and a small for backup because others mentioned it runs big. I found the small was more flattering. This dress is especially fun for dancing. The fluttery sleeves add that extra flair. Definitely recommend this dress. You will be comfortable and have fun wearing it!

I normally wear a 6, and the small fit great! The only issue was the flap at the top kept coming out. They should've sewn it into the dress. Other than that, I loved the dress, and I plan to rent it again for an upcoming party!

It was just plain fun to get a cute dress in a box.
Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Dress was great. Only complaint was that the lining in the keyhole neck wasn't stitched properly, still didn't lie flat even after I ironed it. Added a red fabric rose from the Melrose flea market and a pair of Christian Louboutin black patent leather pumps, and felt like a princess.

Fun dress for a fun evening!!
Size worn: S
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress arrived in a box and was packed so that it didn't get wrinkled...the fabric of the dress flowed nicely. I was thankful to have two sizes to choose from - sometimes dresses are too tight in the chest - but this dress fit perfect in the small size. I loved the sleeves, they made the dress more fun.

Great dress, perfect for my body type & super comfy
Size worn: M
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
This dress was perfect for my body type right now (I'm heavier than I usually am) and this dress is very slimming. It runs big, so I wore the Medium - and I loved it!! I felt comfortable and stylish at a red carpet event with my husband. :) The only thing I would mention is to definitely get the garment tape - the inside flap in the front "flies up" without it.... but tape helped

The fit was perfect for me. I am 5"2 with a longer torso and a 34C bust. It was flattering and comfortable. The sleeves make the dress very flattering . I can't wait to rent this dress again for another upcoming event.

This might be one of the more comfortable dresses that I have worn. It was short, but not dramatically so. I wore tights with it, being winter and shoe booties. Got a ton of compliments on it. Very flattering fit, made me feel tiny!!

Being a little sexy, and funky while having fun at the party!
Size worn: M
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I ordered both a medium and large in this dress, as I was concerned with the length, but I ended up wearing the medium. I put that this dress runs large because it is a loose cut, so some people may be able to wear a smaller size than usual. The length is short enough to be sassy, but long enough to cover what needs to be covered when you move around. The fabric is lightweight and swingy, so it's great for even a more casual party, like the one I went to, but it can easily be dressed up if need be. My only issue with this dress was the facing on the inside of the keyhole--it tends to flap around and stick out of the neckline. However, since RTR sends fashion tape with your order, I used a little of that to make it stay. I would totally suggest getting this dress--I would buy it if I could afford to own it!

Could have been better
Size worn: XS
Overall fit: Large

This runs large. I normally wear a small and the XS was even big in this dress.If you are really small this dress will not work for you. I would have liked it better if it would have been narrower through the body. I still enjoyed wearing it , the material was beautiful and I loved the dramatic sleeves.

My husband loved this .
Size worn: XS
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Other
It runs a size down . I'm usually a small. The front cleavage part of the dress needs to be tacked as it did not stay flat. The dress feels like a million dollars on. Would differently rent this again with some double sided tape to feel more comfortable.m Wore it with a sharp pair of michael kor boots.. LOVE THE SLEEVES

I love this dress!!!!!! I strongly recommend rent it. My Boyfriend loved it!! He was blown away !!
Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress can be worn to ANY event. It's CLASSY, FUNKY, SEXY, RETRO & FUN..... You can dress it up or down but either way you'll stand out in a crowd. The dress is very well made the material is silky but NOT thin, very flattering on and hangs just right. The sleeves are BEAUTIFUL they give the dress that FUNKY/ RETRO feel which I love...... The pic does NO justice for this dress much better looking when you receive it!!! Now for sizing I ordered sm & med. I my opinion the dress is true to size in the bust area. I tried on the small first and it fit every where but the bust area, it was just little snug for me. It was snug in the cup area. Now some ladies would've decided to wear it but I chose not to. I'm a 34D, I tried on the med and fell madly in love. It was perfect!!!! As other renters have said you might need to iron down the inside of the keyhole part of the dress but other then that GREAT DRESS I WILL BE RENT IT AGAIN!!! Got tons of compliments!!!! Thank you RTR for a STRESS FREE fun night!!!!

LOVED this dress! Fun, sassy, comfortable, easy to wear!
Size worn: M
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I wrote that the dress runs large because I think I would typically be a large, but based on others reviews I ordered the medium which fit perfectly. For my age, the length was perfect, it was short, but not too short. On the model in the photo it looks shorter, but she's 5'11" and I am 5"7". It's a fun, flirty dress, but comfortable so you can really enjoy yourself at your special event. Highly recommend! Thank you RTR!

Took this non-traditional LBD with me on a business trip to New Orleans. It was PERFECT for a night of salsa. The dress looked better than my amateur salsa moves. ; ) It concealed my belly yet allowed me to look and feel sexy. Great dress. I'd buy this one.

i will be wearing this dress to a wine and jazz event. I love the sleeves on the dress. They make the dress diffrent than your typical black dress. The dress does run a little big and it is a little longer than it looks on the model in the picture. I was a little worried it would be to short for the event but it is right above the knee.

It's not the typical 'fitted', body contouring design...but it's really stunning. I got compliments all night long. Very well made and couldn't possibly be more comfortable unless it were actual pajamas! I coupled it with about 20 bangles on one arm and it was gorgeous. I wore this with wood wedge slingback platforms...so cute.

I will definitely use this service again in the future!

This is a major twist on the little black dress. I wore this dress to celebrity tribute event. If you have curves, don't want to show them all, but still want to look sexy this is the dress for you. Beware that it is very short...so short that it makes it difficult to wear spanx.

Statement Dress!
Size worn: S
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Other
This dress was my second choice for my 30-year high school reunion. I really liked the way it fit -- not too clingy, but not too loose -- and the sleeves are a show-stopper! The dress is a bit theatrical, and would be perfect with drop-dead heels and over-the-top earrings and bracelet, but for my event it was a bit too fancy. I went with my second choice, but would rent this one again for a different event.

I loved this dress. I wore it with the tassel earrings shown in the picture, and got many compliments. I own 2 Elizabeth and James dresses, both in size small, so I ordered both small and medium. The size small was slightly large but still looked great. I would definitely rent this dress again. The size medium was perfect but the small was very wrinkled and had to take it to be pressed.
