Sexy and classy!

Rented this for my rehearsal dinner. Got tons of compliments! I was nervous because I normally wear a size 10ish. It got like a glove tho. Was not the easiest to walk in but it was worth it;

Got so many compliments on this beautiful dress

Beautiful dress, fit tight all the way down to the knee so I would suggest going up a size for your back up. I am usually a 0-2 and wore a size 4. Really loved the neckline and the color of the dress. The fabric was thick and had little give

Was a backup dress but it was stunning

The only reason I didn't wear this was because it was a summer wedding and the color was too dark and material was too thick. The fit and material was perfect! It made my body look better than it is as if I were wearing spanx. Will def rent again.

Hated the high neckline

What could have been a cute dress was ruined by its high neck line. Very unflattering. Also I wasn't thrilled with the beading. It was another dress that had been picked out by a stylist for me that was another fail.

Stunning holiday dress

I felt so glamorous wearing this dress and received tons of compliments. Rented the 2 and the 4, and ended up wearing the 4. Normally I'm a 2 but the larger size felt better while sitting.

Great dress, runs a little small

I wore the size 2 but like other reviews I read this dress definitely runs small. Not a ton of give in the material and it was very difficult to go to the bathroom :/. I think a 4 would have been a perfect fit for me, however, I usually wear a 0 or a 2. Beautiful dress, got tons of compliments.

runs a little small, but the color is GORGEOUS. burgundy wine color. hugs every curve like spanx!

I couldn't love this dress more. it was an adventure getting it pulled up above my butt, but it was so worth it. it's definitely a smaller extra small than I'm used to, but it really helped suck everything in. my figure looked phenomenal, way better with the dress than without ; ) the color is absolutely stunning in person and photos. it's a decent weight material as well so it doesn't slide around at all. the length is just above the knee, so the tight sexy aspect of the dress is toned down by the conservative length, which I really liked. I wore this to a charity fundraiser but you could easily wear this to a party and look super sexy. I would recommend this over and over!

Sexy curves!

Everything about this dress is beautiful. The color is great in person, beading detail at the neck is not too much, fabric is thick and great quality so it never bunched or creased in an unflattering way. I felt it does run a little small at least for my body type. It was a squeeze to put on around my hips and it was a definite challenge in the ladies room since the base of the dress is very narrow! My occasion was a dinner where I was sitting most of the night and it was a little tight at the neck, but it would be just fine if worn to a party where you are standing most the night. I only took one star off because of these items because this dress is smoking hot!

Amazing dress, and fit like a glove

So I didn't originally order this dress I received a different dress that didn't fit and they were able to over night this one to me. I was in love with this dress the second I put it on. It fit very fell I was nervous ordering the size 0 since all reviews said it ran small but it fit perfect. Hugs your body in very right way. The only con I had was it is very difficult to go to the bathroom in I ended up having to take the whole dress off in order to go. I can't wait for my next event just to order this dress again !

A beautiful & comfortable dress!

This was my first RTR dress and I absolutely loved it! I usually wear a 0 or a 2 but I went with the 4. The 2 was too tight so be sure to order a size or two up!

Loved this dress for an August wedding! I received do many compliments. The fit was great (I am wearing the 8) but please note that it is not very forgiving on the legs... Dancing was alittle tough. Everything else though was awesome!! Another great RTR experience!

Love

Fits awesome The only issue was when going to the bathroom and when pulling the dress back down the slit in the back of the dress ripped a little bit. It wasn't that noticeable but for the high end quality of this dress I never thought that would happen plus I didn't pull on the dress that hard either. Overall I loved the dress and would recommend it to anyone of a straight & narrow/petite body type. I will definitely rent again.

Very form fitting

The dress fit like a glove and was a bit too tight at first but looked great. The material was a bit worn, which I could feel but couldn't see. I'm glad I went with size 2 (something was wrong with size 0), because there is no way I could fit into size 0. The color was really nice for the season too.

This dress shows off your curves!

Similar to other reviews I noticed the dress is unusually tight around the hem line which makes it difficult to go to the bathroom if you have a curvy bottom. I typically order a 0 and a 2, but given the reviews I was worried about the 2 being too tight so I ordered a 2 and a 4. I ended up wearing the 2 which was more snug around the hem line but fit perfectly everywhere else. The 4 was baggy on me in the neck line and chest/stomach area even though the hem line was more comfortable. The dress is beautiful and I loved the color with my dark hair. It accentuates your best assets especially if you have an hourglass, athletic or pear shape. Pear shaped ladies may need to size up! I received so many compliments and would definitely recommend this to a friend.

Love the neckline & the back of this dress!

I am usually a 0 or 2 in dresses but I wore the 4 in this one since it's very tight to begin with. The neck on this dress got a little tight at the end of the night but not bad at all. My one problem with this dress is how small the slit is in the back, in combination with how tight the dress is. It was very difficult to walk in and am surprised I didn't rip it! Maybe it's just because I have long legs & take long strides haha

The dress was really high quality.

It ran a little small and was tight around the neck area. Sitting down was a bit tricky too because it pulled at your throat, but other than that it was a nice dress with a good fabric and pretty beading. Not for those who are self conscious about their bodies.

Right amount of sexy but still classy!

The color of the dress is beautiful! It goes well with minimal jewelry because of the necklace detail. The dress is very fitted but overall flattering. This was my first time with RTR and everything about their customer service was perfect. Absolutely adored this dress, I got compliments all night!

I love this dress!! The color was beautiful and the dress hugged me just right.

If you want to dance and move around freely in a dress, this dress is not for you because it does have a tight fit. I didn't mind the fit because the dress gave me a very nice hourglass shape which was the look I was going for. The berry wine color of the dress looked amazing against my fair skin tone. I got compliments on the dress the whole night. I will definitely rent this dress again!

Classy and form fitting

I loved this dress. Fit snug and perfect! Length is classy and fit is sexy. If you are trying to get really crazy and dance you may look at looser dresses--but that was my only complaint. Id rent this dress again, even my bf was sad we had to send it back!

Didn't wear; fit didn't work for me.

RTR sent me this dress as a backup because my original dress was damaged. I wasn't sold on the style anyway, but it didn't work for me because it fit very big in the hips but smaller on top. Just didn't work for me! Pretty color though.

Perfect fit and very flattering

Let me start off by saying everyone else's reviews were spot on. I always filter to find other people my size and based my decision on that. I normally wear a 0, but I ordered a 2 based on everyone else's recommendation. And I tried to select the 0 as my backup size just in case, but it wasn't available. This was the only time I've ever ordered a dress from RTR not having the backup size, but everything worked out perfect because the 2 fit like a glove. I received so many compliments. I usually like dresses that are short and tight. This was a little longer than I would've normally worn, but I felt like it was very appropriate for a wedding.

Perfect for husbands work Christmas party!

As many of the reviews that I have read stated, this dress definitely runs small! But, it was absolutely perfect! I am typically a size 4 (sometimes a size 6) and so I wanted to order a 6 with a back up size 8. The only size available to rent was a size 6, so I was really nervous when I took the chance of ordering without any backup size or dress. However, it fit like a glove! I would have liked to see how the 8 fit, especially because I have wide hips... it may have fit a little more comfortably. But the size 6 did the job! The material is so nice and thick... after having two kids I was super nervous with it being so tight around the stomach, but it held everything in! When I sat down for dinner it became tight around the neck area, but other than that it fit fine. Walking around, my knees could barely come apart, there is no give at all. But I got used to it and spent most of the night on the dance floor.... walking up and down the stairs was a little tricky! Haha. I would definitely rent this dress again, I received lots of compliments and was so happy to be able to wear it to this event. I would highly recommend it for others, and if possible, suggest ordering a size up with a backup dress 2 sizes up.

Great Dress...BUTT....

This dress is very simple yet sexy. The collar is not ivory as what it seems in the stock photos, but more of a light taupe "wood grain" style bead. It looks great, but I was under the impression the beads were more of an ivory or eggshell color. The material does not have any stretch, the length is perfect, but the hem is a tad too narrow even with the kick slit in the back. Now, I do not have a big butt, but I do have a nice "bump." Luckily I tried to pull the dress up to my waist to fix my panties when I tried this dress on. I could NOT get it over my butt! This means had I worn this dress I would have had to unzip the back and pull the dress down to my ankles to go to the bathroom! There was absolutely no way I could get this dress up over my butt! Bad design there for a gal with a "normal" booty. I am 5'5" and weighed in at 127 that day. My chest is 33," waist is 27" and my hips/butt at the largest point is 38."

Surprise Trip to NYC

This dress is Tight: And It is Beautiful. The fabric is thick enough to be forgiving over any small flaws. It is very comfortable, once you wiggle it on. Beware of going to the bathroom - it might slide right on, but it is difficult to pull up. Best method it to take it off.

I stood out in this dress at my friend's annual Valentine's day party. Stunner!

This dress runs very small. I originally ordered this dress for my birthday in January but ended up being too sick to go out. I had a size 0 & 2 sent and both were too small. I ended up ordering the 4 for my second attempt. This dress has no stretch and thick seams along the sides - almost as if someone took it in. The cut is great for those of us who have toned arms. The decorative neckline is gorgeous. All my girlfriends loved this dress.. And all my boyfriend could say was "wow!"

Just too tight to be comfortable.

The dress was gorgeous, but extremely tight. I fit into the 4 (but barely). They didn't have a 6 available so I ended up wearing a different dress, but I would have worn the 6 if was available!

The dress runs really small and without a stylist to help, I couldn't wear the dress

Due to the new policies that RTR has created (mainly no free second size) combined with the fact that there is no live help anymore, I rented this dress and it ended up being too small. I was unable to wear this dress since I had no backup size and no stylist to assist me with ordering the correct size. I normally wear a size 2 or 4. It I would have had assistance or a backup size, then this dress would have been stunning! I basically wasted over $200 renting this dress and two others that I was also unable to wear due to sizing. RTR is also charging for shipping, even if you purchased the RTR Pro package where you pay up front so that you don't get charged shipping. I used to love this company and this service, but after watching my $200 go down the drain last weekend and have no dresses to wear for my baby shower and formal events, I am definitely not a fan of the companies new policies and will definitely have to re-evaluate renting again!

Runs small and tight and had to go with my back up size. Shapeware was a necessity given the tightness of the sheath. Absolutely loved the color and neckline. I received so many compliments all night long!

Very tight. Gorgeous & flattering, but hard to move in. Don't wear it dancing.

The dress is gorgeous. Sucks you in completely so you look very skinny. Very difficult to move in (except walking). Don't wear it dancing! Perfect for an Auction or dinner. You will feel like a runway model when you slip this on. They did not have the next size up, when I ordered...but I would recommend ordering 2 sizes (your size & 1 size up!!).

Stunning dress for black tie optional wedding

Such a beautiful and form fitting dress. Has close to no give in the fabric, definitely size up. Received many compliments from my boyfriend's family and family friends all night. Didn't have to wear spanx since dress was so form fitting. Bust size is 34DDD.
