Pretty. Classy. Easy.

Overall I loved this dress. I would have given it 5 stars however the seams were coming apart underneath the armpit and also where the slit is. These weren't that noticeable unless I pointed them out. But besides that I felt very classy but also sexy with the opening on the stomach.

So many compliments for black tie wedding

Fit like a glove and got so many compliments on it. Wore it for a black tie New Year's Eve wedding. Also, the top fit really well and didn't require me to wear a bra and I still felt supported. I'm 5'4" and wore 3 inch heels and it hit the floor perfectly.

Simple,Sexy, and Comfortable

My second time renting from RTR and another amazing experience! I rented this dress for a black tie January wedding. I'm 5ft and wore 4 1/2 inch heels and it was the perfect length. I received so many compliments and felt so comfortable! #winterwedding #formal #blacktie #glamour

Sexy and comfortable

LOVED this dress. I wore it to a winter black tie wedding in San Francisco. It's very comfortable - possible to wear without bra or spanx. It's figure flattering and slimming because of the color and fabric. Runs true to size. I went a size up for the back up size and actually wish that I had gone a size down since the fabric is stretchy. The cut out is in a flattering area -- Still hides your tummy.

Amazing compliments all night!! Loved this dress!!

I absolutely am so glad I rented this dress...it was perfect for a black tie wedding on a cold January night. I am really a 2, but they were out of it, and I have to say the 0 fit perfectly. This dress is classy and sexy without being over the top. I wore with gold 4 inch heels. My one issue is that it's really long. I'm 5'1 and even with 4 inch heels it touched the floor. I was able to wear a strapless bra, and it didn't even show thru the dress.

Easiest dress rental ever. Quick, affordable, and worry free.

This dress fit like a glove in all the right places. I'm normally a 6R but with the 2% spandex the 4R fit way better. Perfect for a Mardi Gras black tie affair. Would definitely recommend getting this dress, plus it's gorgeous!

Endless Compliments

If you workout-it shows! Absolutely loved this dress and so did everyone else, too. Lots of compliments and I just felt like a knock out. I wore this for prom and I stood out amongst all the sparkles and chiffon! The dress is lined with comfy silk and fits like a glove. The silk isn't as light as the model's picture but it does have a lighter color than the dress to it. I do not have a big bust but it was fine. I am definitely bottom heavy but the slit gave me plenty of room!! Be careful when you sit.

Gorgeous dress!

I wore 4 inch heels and the length was perfect. Loved the cutout and the slit! I got complements all night long. I don't have a very flat belly but you would never know with the placement of the cutout. I highly recommend it!

Everyone commented on how beautiful she looked!

My daughter wore this dress to her senior prom. The size 2 fit her perfectly! Hugged her body like it was made for her! Had to use the hem tape to shorten it about 2 ". She wore 3" heels.

Perfect balance of sexy and sophisticated!

The dress fit true to size but was shorter in length. I'm 5'4 and wore 4" heels but my shoes were showing. It has a great modern cut on the top and I loved the slit. Lots of compliments all night!

First time to use RTR and definitely plan to use again, so easy!

Loved the way this dress fit! Like previous reviews stated, the fabric is thick enough to not wear a bra but I did. I would recommend ordering the dress in long if you're taller than 5'7" and plan to wear talk heels. Everyone loved this dress, rent it!

Loved it!

I typically wear anywhere from a 0-4 depending on the fit of the bust since I am a 34DD. I ordered the 4R and wanted a 2R, but only available option was the 2L, which fit well but was just way to long and a little small in the chest. Went with the 4 and it fit great, but I did still need 5" heels. Overall, the dress was super comfortable and very flattering... I really do wish I could keep it!! Great experience with RTR!

STUNNING DRESS- trendy and classic

I originally wanted to order a 6 or an 8 in this dress, but they were both unavailable for my date, so I took the plunge and ordered a 4L (the only thing available). I was 95% sure it wouldn't work after reading reviews about sizing up due to some tightness in the hips, and since that's where I carry my weight I was nervous about the fit. The material IS very stretchy because I am no size 4, but the 6 would've probably fit better. I'd say the material was snug and hid my flaws while accentuating my curves...I felt like Beyoncé in this dress. I did have to wear very high heels due to the length, and I had to have someone else zip me up. I'd say it runs pretty true to size but is stretchy...obsessed with this dress.

Super comfortable dress that makes you feel glamorous!

Fit is pretty true to size; it is super comfortable and the high slit makes moving around very easy. I was able to wear a normal strapless bra with zero issues. I'm just under 5'7" and 135 lbs with a fairly muscular build and bigger hips/booty and the 4 long was perfect for me BUT it was a tad too long, even with 4.25" heels. Great dress, and I would highly recommend!

Perfect dress!!

It fit great! I wore low heels and got an 8L. Any higher heels it might have been too short, but I'm 5'9" so I usually stick to shorter heels. The only con is you can't wear a bra which is fine because the fit is great but I did have to check for under boob frequently. Everyone told me it was fine though! :) Absolutely loved the dress!!

Very impressed, gorgeous dress

I was very impressed with how this dress was delivered. The 6R fit but was snug around the stomach so I went with the 8R and it was a lot more flattering. I am 5'6" and worse small heels and the length was perfect. The dress was very comfortable , looked great and made me feel great. I wore this dress to the marine corps birthday ball and received many compliments. I was very nervous about renting a dress but so happy I did, will definitely be using RTR again !

Wish I had a better experience. Hopefully next time will be better.

The dresses I ordered were too big. I normally wear a 2 but the 0 was baggy on me. This was my first RTR experience and I was disappointed but will hopefully have a better experience next time.

Perfect for a black tie Christmas party

Loved this dress. I have narrow shoulders and a petite upper body, and the dress fit perfectly. Some reviews said the front cutout panel was larger than expected, but I was happy with it. I'm tallish (5'7'') with long legs and wore 3 inch heels--the 4 long was probably about a half inch too long, but nothing problematic. Would totally recommend.

Super comfortable & flattering at the same time!

Wore this to a formal Christmas party for my fiancé's work. Dress is super comfortable and very flattering. Received tons of compliments all night and my fiancé couldn't keep his hands off me! Fabric has some stretch to it but hugs in all the right places. I didn't have to wear a bra and was very comfortable without. Dress is snug enough to support you. Danced the night away without a worry. Rent this dress! You won't regret it!

Sexy dress that was comfortable, elegant and fun

This dress was awesome! I've used RTR for years now and this is one of my favorite dresses by far. It was so hot! But, it was sophisticated and everyone at the party kept commenting on it. It was also extremely comfortable and I just felt pretty and at ease. I wore the 4L with 4" heels and it was perfect. Just grazed the floor with the teeniest train in the back which I loved. All in all, perfect night in a perfect dress.

How beautiful the dress was

I cannot put into words what a lifesaver this dress was. It was my backup dress and I loved it. I was worried about the cut out because I have a little bit of a tummy and was afraid it would only extenuate it. It did the complete opposite!! It's soft fabric held me in and thinned me out. The slit was long but still classy. I would recommend this dress to any girl that has curves!

I felt glamorous and comfortable all night! Loved the mermaid swish of this gown.

Fit true to size. Fabric has a slight give so it's a very forgiving dress. Very slimming and flattering effect. Sexy yet classy. Overall I received TONS of compliments. Wearing this gown makes you feel like a million bucks. Thanks RTR.

Received tons of compliments all night!

Dress fit perfectly and everyone absolutely loved it! I received a 2R and a 0R and wore the 2 but didn't even try on the 0 I fell in love with the 2 so quickly. The dress looked great, photographed well and was the perfect style for this event. It can be formal or more relaxed and fits in well in both environments. I was very sad when I had to send it back and wasn't surprised that it's completely sold out online when I looked.

Beautiful dress

I wore this gown to a black tie event and received compliments all night long. Absolutely loved the simple and elegant style with a cut-out that added a slight edge. I didn’t wear a bra so was a tad loose in the top area, but not noticeable against the dark color of the dress. It fit perfectly and was extremely comfortable to walk/dance in. I am 5’7” and with 1” kitten heels the 2R dress was the perfect length.

Obsessed with this dress!

I rented this dress for a Mardi Gras ball. It was my first time using RTR and now I'm hooked! This dress was so beautiful. I received compliments the entire night! I didn't want to take it off. My first experience with RTR was amazing. They were out of the 8R and I'm so glad they still had a 10R available. I'm 5'6 and usually wear a size 8. It was perfect! The dress didn't drag or sag to the ground. I highly recommend this dress! Love it!

Gorgeous dress for a black tie party

I got so many compliments on this dress and felt really glamorous! I am 5'10" so I ordered the long and the length was great. You could see my heels but better to not be tripping over the dress. The fabric is thick so I didn't wear a bra and felt comfortable. The slit and cutout make the dress sexy but it's still very tasteful. I was sad to send it back, would definitely order again!

This dress fit like a glove! I felt so confident and comfortable all day and into the night!

I wore this to a black tie optional wedding - daytime ceremony and evening reception. It was perfect for both and I received so many compliments on the cut, shape and navy color! The fit was seamless aside from the length. I'm 5' 2" and wore 5" heels and it still skimmed the ground. #wedding #blacktie #gorgeous

RTR delivers on time and in perfect condition. Couldn't be an easier process. Will rent again.

I wore this dress for my law school formal. The dress is form fitting but super flattering. I absolutely loved it. I received so many compliments. The cut out is sexy but not huge enough to make any one feel self conscious. Wish I could have kept it!
