Sexy + sophisticated.

I had my eye on this for my 31st birthday and am so happy I rented it. Helmut Lang epitomizes clean design but the back is just to die for. I'm small on top so didn't have to wear a bra, which was also great. The best part was how comfortable it was and the endless compliments. It's the best way to try the cut out trend but still be modest/appropriate. Will 100% rent again when it's warm out.

Not what I expected :/

I was hoping for a sexy dress. When i tried it on it was too big that you couldn't even see the opening in the side. I don't know if I was too short? But the top piece was loose and covered the opening. So it just looked like a skirt suit on me. Not the look I was looking for. Might work best if you are tall.

Just didn't fit well... 6 was too tight, wouldn't even fit over my chest (34c) and the 8 was huge...

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
Looked like a baggy, boxy suit skirt and shell to be worn with a blazer... not flattering on me. Couldn't even see the cut out on the hip. Just not the look I was going for and the fit was way off for my body (5'4", 135lbs, short torso).

Loved everything about this dress - you can wear a regular bra with it, the fit is super flattering, and the cutouts are on one side and gives just the right touch of sexiness. Loved loved! will rent again!

This was sent to me as a replacement when the one I had originally ordered was returned damaged. The stylists were great and sent me a few dresses to choose from. On the hangers, this was my least favorite but it's a totally different dress once you get it on. Loved it!!!!

Logistics of delivery- I ordered on Wednesday, on my doorstep Thursday before noon

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
Everything was perfect! I would suggest ordering a size smaller- it is a little tight putting on (no zippers), but fits great once you get it on.

This dress runs large.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large

I had to use safety pins on the sides of the dress so that you can see the cut outs otherwise the dress would look like a black suit. The fabric wrinkles when you sit down. Halfway through the night my dressed looked like I never ironed it.

Love the edginess & how unassuming it is from the front everyone was surprised when i turned around

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
The dress is so comfortable and the top was supportive enough to go braless. I would have liked a 4, the 6 felt like the hanging parts hung too much in the back, so the cut didn't really show from the front on the hip area. But I still liked it.

My favorite RTR ever... and that's saying a lot.

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Gorgeous, unique, classy, and drapes amazingly. When I pulled it out of the bag, I was nervous that the elastic portions and some exposed seams (which you can't see on the model) would make it a little too informal. But when I put it on, that definitely wasn't the case. No bra possible, which surprisingly wasn't a problem at all since the lining hugs closely. I wouldn't wear this to a club, like some other reviewers, because of the long length. But it definitely fits the bill as a perfect LBD for a cocktail event on the formal side. Now I want to buy it.

This dress was so comfortable that I was able to wear it in NYC for a Bday party and at the beach in SXM. It also looked great!

Nice material, edgy and unique dress. Got lots of compliments! Would have liked it to be a *tad* more fitted, so if you would like it to be more on the fitted size, go one size smaller.

The cut of the dress was very sexy

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
There were a few areas on the back strap where it appeared that the dress had been a tad too small for the ladies who had worn the dress before me because there were small tears where I was afraid that the strap would break so I added a safety pin. I also believe that there should be better detail when describing the fabric of the dress. It is extremely temperamental and if it gets wet it will leave a mark on the fabric.

Sexy dress if you have a little bit of curves!

Size worn: None

I ordered the size 0 to wear and the bottom/skirt portion of the dress was huge on me. Granted, I am pretty thin with no hips, but usually a 0 factors that in. Not this dress. Otherwise, it was a very sexy, classy dress but designed for women with some hips.

I thought the dress might look a bit baggy and loose but it is actually super flattering and modern.
