Lots of compliments on this sexy LBD!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
The dress is very tight and stretchy. I sized up to the 8 because there was not enough room in the bust area. I am bigger on top and the cut out draws a lot of attention to that area, still the long sleeves and length make it more conservative. Overall, I received many compliments on this versatile LBD.

Needed a dress that would be warm for a chilly night out in Las Vegas

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Vacation
The size 2 probably would have been okay, except for the bust area. Even in the size 4, I felt like I was pushing the limits and I felt a little self conscious. But, I think a size 6 would have been too big and would have probably gapped through the bust...because of the fit, it's critical that this fits snugly through the bust!

Classy dress. Got so many compliments!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
The dress fit very well. I wore it for NYE and got lots of compliments. The dress fits great in the bust area, making the girls look amazing. The dress is made out of a heavier fabric, so you can tell it's great quality. The only downside of this dress is that if you are a dance machine, prepare to sweat a little due to the thickness of the fabric. Overall, I'd recommend it.

I had rented 2 dresses before this one and none of them worked, so I guess what they say is true..third times the charm! This dress is extremely flattering and was very comfortable. It hugged in all the right places. I received endless compliments and even got a few offers from friends that they would pitch in and by the dress for me! I highly recommend renting this dress for a birthday or girls night out!

Show Stopper!!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I rented this for a party, and I swear I felt like a celebrity all night. It was all eyes on me from the second I walked through the door. I got numerous compliments, and even perfect strangers were walking up to me telling me I was "killin it". lol. That's slang for I looked really good. haha. When I first took it out of the garment bag I was a bit disappointed. It just doesn't look that great on the hanger, but then I tried it on and I was in love! It was gorgeous once on. The material is really thick and you can tell it is high quality material. It hugs all the right places. The dress is a really great fit. It fits like a glove so there is not much room for error. If you aren't sure if you are a true size 6 then I would size up. I am a small 36C, and I was able to wear it with the victoria secret very sexy bra in black and had no issues. If you are a full 36C and you normally spill out of your bra then I would size up. This dress could border on indecent in the wrong size lol.

This was my back up dress for a party

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
Although I loved the style - the fabric was such that if it was too big in areas it would bunch up - should have gone with a size smaller - I'll probably rent again and wear it at a smaller size

This was the backup dress I rented. Would have worn it but i fell in love with the other dress. I will definitely be renting this again! It fit great, a little more revealing than i"m used to, but the sleeves and length balance it out. The fabric is a little heavy so I'll save the rental for colder months.

Felt Like Britney

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
I rented this dress for a Britney Spears spoof of her video Scream and Shout. Besides being perfect for this purpose, it was a great dress otherwise. Extremely flattering cinched waist and a cleave-tastic cutout. The button detail at the neck was interesting and fun. Long sleeves were a little tight so I would say steer clear if you need free movement. Otherwise, wear it with pride and await the compliments.

Great colder weather party dress

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I rented this dress for a girlfriends bachelorette party. It was a 'Pop Diva' theme and I had a blue wig that could go Katy Perry or Lady Gaga so I wanted a fun, pop star kind of dress. I found this and it turned out perfectly. The dress was very comfortable when I got it on and you can't help but show of your chest in a classy way in this number. The only reason this didn't get a 5 is becuase of 2 things. 1) Clubs get hot, especially when dancing and I got pretty hot in this dress. The sleeves are very tight so you won't get good ventilaition. Don't wear in warmer months! 2) It was very tricky to get on. The zipper is a little tough getting over the satin part of the dress and the top is sooo tight that you really have to work yourself in. Once its on it feel fabulous but I'd advise putting deodorant on after or else you'll get it all over the dress.

I was unable to wear it with having a bigger bust. I was unable to button the top and the rest ran small even with the give in the fabric, I would size up for sure.

This dress fit like a dream. I ordered it in a size 10 and it was perfect. I felt completely comfortable all night long. It's true this dress isn't for the "faint hearted" but I promise you if you rent it, you will feel like a star out for the evening. This dress actually was a last minute back up dress and was I glad about that. Once again RTR did a great job making sure that everything worked out well.

Overall fit: True to Size

I usually am somewhere between a 6 and an 8. I got both and went with the 6. It fit well and was really form enhancing, it sucked it in where it needed to be. The only con was the front around the cleavage, even with the sticky tape it was hard to keep the girls in.

Such a fun dress! I don't show my cleavage often at all but decided to go for it for a night in AC. You have to be prepared to be on display because you just are with this dress. It's like a picture frame of your cleavage. The fit is great. Tight but not a suction. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is bc a) you need another person to get the side zip up bc it has trouble going over the satin material and b) it does ride up a bit. All in - so glad I rented it. Highly recommend!

This dress was even better than it looked! I wasn't in love with it when I rented it, but I ended up absolutely loving it when I tried it on. I am normally a 10, but ordered the 8 as well because I've been working out a lot and the 8 ended up fitting better right above my butt and lower back. The "boob window" was sexy but it was offset by the long sleeves so it wasn't too much! Plus, sending the dresses back was so easy, I'll definitely be renting again.

Unfortunately the dress was too large to wear either size. It was also very long. The upper area is very sexy but that's the only redeeming quality or this dress. The fabric is thick and it is slimming but I would recommend people to order a size down as their backup!

The fabric is SUPER thick so be careful in any kind of heat. Also the sleeves are a bit bulky on the end; despite having buttons they were a bit loose on me and felt odd. Other than that it was on okay dress and showed a TON of cleavage.

I usually wear a 6 or 8 and the 8 was perfect. Make sure to do your hair and makeup AFTER you put it on! I had to retouch everything after fighting with the dress over my head. I received so many compliments and felt I stood out in a good way.

I could've gone down a size and worn the 2 but it was a little too snug in the chest for me. everything was a pro! The sleeves were short, but short enough to look like they were meant to be that way. You only need earrings with this dress, so accessories were easy! I wore it to a fraternity formal and it was PERFECT.

This dress fits like a glove. The fabric hugs the curves and is comfortable. I did love the dress but ended up not wearing it for 2 major factors: 1. the bust area shows WAY too much cleavage. I do love a good Victoria's Secret bra that emphasizes what I've got, but really, this dress was just too revealing of the girls. One strong cough, and I felt like I would bust out. Fashion tape would have worked, I think, to solve this issue. I think that people would have a hard time looking at anything but your chest if you wore this dress. 2. the hip area was too large, especially at the side zipper. The stretchy fabric added another few inches to each of my hips, which, let's face it, no woman wants to do. I could grab a handful of fabric on each side.

So this dress is beautiful and sexy. I like to dress glamorous, but I would not recommend this dress for a family event or for meeting the in-laws! This is definitely a date night dress. I wore this for my birthday and it was so gorgeous and my husband loved it. I have a large bust and the top still fit, was just a bit busty. I wish i could keep it. I would recommend this in a heartbeat, but i would recommend that the renter consider what occasion they are renting this for. Perhaps it is because of my large bust size, but i would NOT feel comfortable wearing this to a formal wedding or any family event.

If you enjoy having people make eye contact with your breasts instead of your face, and tugging your dress down all night as it rides up every 5 seconds, then this is the rental for you. I'm glad I tried it- I normally stay away from black and cleavage- but I won't be renting this dress or anything like it again.

I rented this dress for a night of dinner and dancing on valentines day. Be ready for all eyes to be on you, as this dress shows a lot of cleavage. Looks very glamorous. Just to be safe, you may wish to stock up on double sided tape. Other ratings suggested putting the dress on before you finish your hair and makeup; this was a life saver! The dress is a little snug to put on, so I could understand how it could mess up your hair. Great dress, wish I could have kept it!!

The sleeves were kind of tight but once I got it on it was fine! Every part of the dress fit true to size except the waist! I would have worn the 2 if the waist wasn't so awkwardly large.

Never ending compliments all night! Felt beautiful. Perfect combination of classy and sassy.

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size

Pros- very slimming and flattering. Accentuates all your good assets. Comfortable and great for dancing! Good length, not too long or short. Simple and yet still stunning. Cons- very few. I have broader shoulders and larger chest so the top fit more snug than the bottom. Arms were a little tight but not uncomfortable. In the mid section area it was a little loser than I expected based on other reviews that said it fits snug. Something to keep in mind. I would rent this dress again in a heartbeat- loved wearing it for my friends 25th bday for a night out on the town! Hated when the night ended and that the dress had to finally come off to be replaced with PJs.

People recognized me as Britney at her show in Vegas and the fit was incredible.

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size

I was celebrating my birthday in Vegas and went to Britney's show and chose this dress after I saw another woman on here wearing this for Halloween as Brit. This dress did not disappoint!! The fit was fab and gave me even more support (still wore spanx with it). It felt a little like wearing a wet suit and I felt like the arms were a little tight but once you got the seams lined up it wasn't so bad. You will definitely get noticed in this dress so if you don't like to be in the spotlight, then I would choose a different dress. "All eyes on me in the center of the ring just like a circus".
