I felt elegant and sexy at the same time.
Size worn: S
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
When finding a dress for the night on the town, I'm sick of seeing two extremes: slutty, too-thin dresses that scream "I'm 21!!!" and mature. frumpy-looking styles. I felt pretty and sexy in this dress and it accentuated whatever curves I have. It was comfortable to dance in all night long. I ordered two sizes-- Small and Medium -- and really could have gone with either. I have a small bust and the medium was a little baggy up top, so the small worked great.

Fits perfectly on body. Tight but stretchy. Form fitting. I wore this in Vegas and felt awesome in it. Short enough to be a sexy lbd but long enough in back to still have class. I love this dress!!!

The dress fits true to size, after reading reviews I was worried the dress would be super long on me (5'4) but the length was perfect. It is a tight fitting dress but not super tight and uncomfortable and the thicker fabric doesn't show any imperfections.

The dress fit really well however it was a little longer than what i expected. I would suggest putting a larger necklace on around the neckline as well as to bring out another color. I would defiantly recommend this dress.

Love the neckline on this dress!
Size worn: M
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
This is a hot, tight dress. It's very fitted in a flattering way – sucks everything in. The neckline is very flattering and makes you look toned and athletic. I would definitely recommend for a party or cocktail attire event. The dress tends to ride up when you walk or sit, so be careful.

Amazing dress! Sexy without being too revealing.

Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I wore this dress to a cocktail party and it was a hit. The quality of this dress is amazing and it hugs your curves perfectly. It's Mardi Gras time where I live, so our weekend was filled with cocktail parties and brunches. This was my second RTR dress to wear over the weekend and everyone was asking where I got my beautiful clothes! I will definitely be using RTR for all of my future events.

I wore this dress for Valentine's Day date night. I'm usually a size 4 and the small fit well but the medium fit even better (a little more breathing room). This dress was classy and sexy at the same time. I wish I owned it!!

Great little black dress!
Size worn: M

Adorable dress, great for accessorizing. Definitely does not leave anything to the imagination, I normally wear a small and the medium was very snug but comfortable. If you are tall it feels pretty short with the cut.

Second choice dress. I had overnighted after my first choice did not fit right! Customer service was great and shipped this dress out. I was nervous it wouldn't fit right but it was perfect. My waist is much smaller than my hips so despite the curvy bottom, the waist was also very fitted. No baggyness or gaps as I have found in other dresses.

Helmut Lang makes fabulous dresses and this one is no exception. This dress is simply amazing! The fit is perfect, it is comfortable and I could walk all around Vegas without it riding up. My boyfriend said it was "classy sexy" which is the look I was going for. Just wish that I could have purchased this dress. Thank you RTR!

This dress may look like your basic black dress, but the cut of it makes you look amazing. The length was perfect and I loved how it accentuated my curves. I felt very feminine and the dress was very comfortable to wear. A+!

Managed to combine two orders, customer service was very responsive and easy to work with.
Size worn: XS
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress is amazing. The cut on the shoulders is phenomenal both in the front and the back. I could have worn the size Small, but because I'm so short it was a little long and I opted for the XS. This dress runs small; it is very stretchy but skin tight. I was not able to comfortably wear a bra with the XS, but it was so fitted it held me in just fine anyways. I received a ton of compliments, if you have defined arms, you will love this dress!

Sexy, comfortable dress kept it simple and chic!
Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I thought the dress fit nicely, not to snug or loose. I ordered the S and M, and only went with the M knowing that I would be wearing tights (and that waist band line is hella annoying) so I didn't want anything too clingy. It was flattering but definitely shows off the curves...so keep that in mind. Great dress!

Little black dress with big wow factor
Size worn: M
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress for a wedding. I own a few Helmut Lang blazers, knowing things run a little on the smaller/fitted end I rented the medium. I probably could have gotten away with the small, but it would have been skin tight. This dress was so comfortable and hugged me in all the right places. I think it is very flatter for small busted women. Th length was perfect! This has been my favortie RTR rental so far!

This was one of my favorite RTR dresses to wear. Incredibly chic cut and the fabric was so comfortable, I could have worn it forever! The small fit me in the waist but was a bit snug on the chest so I ended up wearing up the medium. Loved, loved, loved this dress and the Kate Spade necklace was the perfect addition!

Super comfortable dress.
Size worn: S
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
The dress fit so well. I'm only 5'3" and the dress was not too long, it hit me like an inch of two above the knew which was perfect. The material was very comfortable and very flattering. The only this is you have to wear a strapless bra with the dress or you will be able to see the side of your regular bra. But such a great rental!

Modern, slimming, classic
Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The fit of this dress is great and pulls everything in for a very slimming effect. My husband saw it and said, "ooh...classy!" I ordered the M and L after reading the dress ran small, but fortunately the medium fit great because the zipper on the L was broken. You do have to wear some sort of strapless bra or shaper with this dress - I tried a regular racerback without luck. I wish I had gotten a good photo but I would definitely rent this again. It is classy with just enough sexy, and would work for so many occasions. Thanks again RTR!

Sexy!
Size worn: M
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I had rented this as my backup and did not end up wearing it. I liked it because it was "classy sexy". It is very, very tight, however. I realize that is how it is supposed to fit, so it may just be that it was too tight for my personal taste, but someone else may like that. I am usually a size small or a 4/6 in mall stores, and I got a medium in this. A large probably would not have fit right, so I think the style was just not right for me. My arms looked great but I felt like it made me look like I had a tummy, and I don't!

I wore this to a wedding and got a ton of compliments. It's a tight-fitting dress if you wear it true to size, so if you want it a little looser I'd suggest sizing up. But it doesn't ride up and overall is really pretty.

Much to my bf's dismay, I'm definitely on the conservative side when it comes to dressing. I got this dress for a cocktail party and both my boyfriend and I loved it. His response was "you can wear pearls and be a little slutty!" The black is slimming and covers everything, SPANX ARE A MUST...unless you have a 6-pack. I liked it because its tight and cut like the Herve Leger's, but the fabric is a little more sophisticated.

This dress is perfect. Helmut Lang delivers a perfectly simple, yet edgy foundation for a great total look. IT is very fitted but truly hugged my body in all the appropriate places. Of course I still wore Spanx underneath! I paired it with black booties and a leather combo asymmetrical jacket, with simple teardrop earrings and a David Yurman chain cuff. I LOVE Helmut Lang and this dress was no exception! Unfortunately forgot to take a picture.
