Great for an office Christmas party
Wore this dress paired with opaque tights and heels to an office Christmas party. The dress was classy, maybe a bit short with the heels, but the tights took care of that. If I wore the dress for non-work related function the length without the tights would have been fine...just like to be conservative with work attire.

I wore this out for one night of my bachelorette party. Perfect little black dress.
I loved the cap sleeve details and matching side panels.

Cute, but so short!
I thought this dress looked a little boring in the picture, but I ordered it anyway. It was really cute and the overall cut was flattering; the comfortable material and interesting side panels were a bonus. (I thought the panels would be sheer but they were actually nude-colored fabric with grey lace over it.) HOWEVER! I ordered this for a work holiday party and even with tights I could not bring myself to wear it in public! It was toooooo short; "above my fingertips" short. I MIGHT wear this to a party or on a date - with thick opaque tights!

Pretty dress, but not my favorite
This dress was nice but not my favorite RTR dress. The dress rides up a lot and even though I have 4'11. It hit a few inches above my knees. It is a pretty dress and super comfy, just not my fav.

This was much shorter than I anticipated! But it was fun being out of my comfort zone for the night. The dress is very comfortable, and the faux sheet panels were a plus!

Love this dress!
I went to the RTR store in the city and fell in love with the dress. I originally tried on the 4 which was a little too small so I ordered the 6. The 6 had extra space in the back and gaped a little bit but I covered with my hair. The lace on the sides makes it super flattering and slimming but it's also very form fitting and super short so it's not appropriate for a conservative event. I got tons of compliments and would rent this dress again in a heartbeat.

Great fit! Shoulders add a touch of glam to LBD
The dress fit very well around curves. The lining made it super comfortable and easy to wear. The sizing is regular, but the length is definitely short. The silver/beige paneling gave it a very classy feel! The only complaint I have with this dress is the fabric is a little more thin than other RTR dresses I have had, so you may need spanx for the stomach area. Overall, the dress is beautiful!

A night in Chicago of celebrating and dancing.
More this for a bachelorette party. It is really comfortable, and I got a lot of compliments. It is really short so be prepared with spanks or just general awareness.

Cute dress, just didn't fit quite right
I knew this dress would be short, but I'm only 5'3 so most dresses are much longer than me than on the model. But this dress ended up being too short to be appropriate to wear to the family event that I rented it for. Might have been ok with tights underneath but I rented it in the summer so it just wasn't possible. I also felt like the place where it hit on the thigh made it a little less flattering. Cute dress, just not right for me or this event. Would be better for a girls night out or New Year's Eve type event.

The dress was cute but ran small.
The dress I feel runs a size small. I ordered a 2 and a 4 and went with the 4. I only wore the dress to the wedding ceremony and ran home and changed before the cocktail hour. The dress rode up as I walked and it was annoying that I had to constantly pull it down. I do not recommend this dress.

Cute dress for Vegas date
This dress was really comfortable and cute for a date in Las Vegas. I gave it 4 stars because it is really short. I wore tights but was concerned about any bending over whatsoever. Nice fabric and comfy for sure.

I ordered it for a wedding but couldn't wear it because it was SOOO short.
I'm 5'7 and 135 lbs, with long legs. The size 8 was SOO short that when I raised my arms ALL of my underwear showed. I definitely could not wear this out of the house. It was a cute dress for someone shorter though

Very comfortable
I had read that this dress ran true to size so to be safe I ordered a 6 and an 8. The 6 fit perfectly, the 8 seemed about the same except it kind of had extra fabric that bunched below the hips (where the bottom tip of the side lace parts are). It was shorter than I expected - I'm 5'2 and it hit the same length as the model in the photo (I guess I thought it would be longer on a short person!) Still, not so short that I felt embarrassed to wear it to a wedding. *added later: After reading some more reviews I thought I should go back and emphasize that yes this was much shorter than I expected. Not scandalous but, short enough that I did tell my boyfriend if I dropped something he would have to pick it up for me because I couldn't possibly bend over to pick it up! I still loved this dress and give it five stars. It was super comfortable, and stretchier than I though it would be, not stiff at all. Didn't have to tug at it or rearrange anything throughout the event, and it was great being able to wear a regular bra.

Cute but way too short
I tried both the 8 and the 10- the 8 fit perfectly but was so, so incredibly short- there was no way I could wear it in public! The 10 was a little too loose, and still way too short. Too bad, it's a pretty dress and feels very well made.

Cute but SHORT!
This dress was super cute, and I would say true to size. Very flattering in the upper body and midsection. The downside is it was really (really, really) short on me.

WAY too short!
I wasn't able to wear this dress because of how short it was! I rented for a winter wedding and planned on wearing with tights and booties. I tried both sizes on and they both came right to the bottom of my bum - and I'm only 5'5"! Could definitely be good for a party, but certainly not appropriate for a church wedding.

This dress would have been perfect if it were longer
The overall fit of this dress was perfect for my body...except the length, it was way too short for a wedding. I would rent it again for a cocktail party, or new years eve. It says in the description to wear a strapless bra but the lace has lining under it so you don't see bra straps at all.

oh my this dress is short!
I rented this dress for a wedding. I am not particularly tall (5'4'') but this dress barely (and I mean BARELY) covered my bum. I had to pick up another dress as a substitute - although I did wear it out the night before the wedding and got lots of compliments (it was in New Orleans so short dress was fine). I do think this dress would be adorable for a winter wedding with black tights. But for this girl - way too short! Also - size up.

The material is of high quality and does not stretch throughout the night, which I loved! I received multiple compliments throughout the night! It's a sexy yet classy dress and I'd be happy to rent this again.

This dress was remarkably small. I've rented very similar ones that fit entirely differently. I had rented it for a work event but, it was so short and so tight I looked like I was going to the club. Had to pass.

Absolutely perfect.
I chose this dress as an option and it was the one I went with! It fit perfectly and was very flattering. This dress received so many compliments and head turns by the end of the night! I was so sad to see it go, but I will definitely rent again!

Great dress.
Rented this for an event that was, sadly, rescheduled due to a blizzard. When I tried it on, however, it was flattering. RTR was very good about reimbursing me for the dress and I was able to re-rent it for the rescheduled event. I wore the 4. Low bun and red lipstick (and some fabulous earrings also courtesy of RTR) and was ready to go!

I wore this to my boyfriend's fraternity formal.
Dress was a nice fit, and I am very busty. However, it is fell longer on me (closer to the knees) than I would have liked. I am 5'3". However, overall, I received tons of compliments all night and it was very comfortable! I went with the 4 because the 6 was way too big on me! And I usually wear a 6.

Nice dress, just not for me
I rented this dress in a 10 &12. The 10 fit perfect throughout the whole dress but it was short, and I mean SHORT. I tried on the 12 and the 12 proved to be way too boxy all over. I paired the 10 with opaque tights and even with the tights, it wasn't working. I should mention that I have a "bubble butt" but the difference in the two sizes didn't make for a comfortable or flattering fit. The fabrc of the dress tends to ride up which also didn't help the fit.

The dress fits snug but comfortable. It stretches and you can dance all night long wearing this. I am shorter and the hem was above my knee which was great. The color and design would flatter anybody.

Cute dress, but not the right fit.
I rented this dress for a winter cocktail party, but did not end up wearing it. The event was a work function and thus I wanted to keep my dress on the fun-but-conservative side. I rented a size larger (4) from my normal size (2), as many other reviewers mentioned that the dress ran small and had minimal stretch. Unfortunately, the dress was too big on me. It is, however, a fun and easy-to-wear LBD as long as you can get the sizing right. The length, cut, and lining beneath the lace details make this dress appropriate for a number of different winter events.

I was in between sizes
The 4 was too big in the hips. The 2 fit me, but then the waist sat too high and it was too short. Had it fit it would probably have been very comfortable.

Wore this out for my birthday, and I got a lot of compliments. Great dress!
It fit exactly how I thought it would. The fabric was super soft, and it was very comfortable. It gave the illusion of an hourglass figure, and I was able to dress it down with black tights and flats. I'm 5'8, so without flats/tights, it might have look a little too short for me. Overall, I really enjoyed renting this!

So cute, but too big!
I loved this dress, but it just didn't fit me right. My regular size was way too big and hung off funny. I did get the side smaller and that was still too big in the waist. I wished it fit me better because it is a beautiful dress!
