Loved this! Flattering and great material
I was the first to rent this dress and it arrived with the tags. So comfortable and so flattering. The sleeves are super chic and the fit was perfect. Would 100% rent again

New take on a LBD
Fit true to size. I am naturally a petite, so the sleeve length was a tad too long (but that is normal for me). I was able to wear spanx to smooth out the whole look.

Dramatic bell sleeve!
This dress was so much fun I didn't want to take it off at the end of the night! Fabric is thick and flattering. The bell sleeve is so much fun! Wore with a cocktail ring and bold earring. Would be best with a black shapewear type short slip as the knit can open a bit.

STYLIST REVIEW!
I'm usually a size 6 back up size 8 so medium usually suffices for me in most styles. In this case, I wore a size small and it fit AMAZING! The stretchy, bandage like material really made it easy for me to get into. This is by far my favorite style that I have rented from RTR. So comfortable, so cute & so FUN!!! This dress is perfect for a daytime brunch or a fun night out. LOVE LOVE LOVE & will rent it again :)

Form fitting
Dress was very cute, material hugs every curve. Usually I am between a small or medium but I went with the small because of other reviews. All in all it was a great dress for the rehearsal dinner I attended.

Wedding guest!
Wore this to a wedding and loved it. Got a lot of compliments. I went with the medium but I could of worn the small. The medium gave me some more room so I was more comfortable. Do hair and makeup after putting on dress because the neck doesn't have much give. Overall great dress!

Eye catching dress!!
This dress is amazing. Fits like a glove. The small fit too, but I wanted a little breathing room. The ONLY issue with this dress is that it was a little loose around the underarm area. Felt a tiny bit baggy under my arms... but nothing to make me not wear it. I had, and continue to have, many compliments on this dress!!

Sophisticated but fun
Fit true to size... I could have probably worn the small so the sleeves would have been a bit shorter but I didn't want it to be skin tight. This dress is very snug around the neck so if possible, do your makeup after you put it on. I definitely needed black shape wear underneath because the ribbing could expose some skin if you don't. I wish I had taken photos closeup of the dress because I wasn't aware of the way the dress was ribbed before renting. However, I still loved it! It was tricky to eat with the long bell sleeves. I simply wore a cocktail ring and large earrings. Got lots of compliments!

Perfect fall dinner with friends dress!!
Loved this LBD!! I usually don't rent black dresses but loved the bell sleeves & short length. The perfect amount of sexy but still classy!! I'm someone who is always cold so long sleeves in the fall & winter is a necessity! Decided to wear it with long silver earrings and no necklace! One of my favorite rentals from RTR!!

Perfect LBD for Christmas Party!
This is the perfect, LBD. The fit of the XS was a little better, but I decided to go with the S for the additional length. It shows just the right amount of leg but still looks incredibly classy and stylish. A RTR winner, for sure!

This dress was by far was a hit!
This dress for me perfectly! I ordered a size 8 and a 10 and there wasn't much of a difference other than the 8 was a bit shorter! Being 5 ft 9 inches I liked a little extra length from the size 10! Very well made and thicker material so really is a great shaping dress! I felt fantastic in it!

Loved the fit & feel!
This is a great LBD! The only thing that caused me problems was the fabric/knit has subtle wide striping in the weave that is very sheer and thus see-through to where I felt I needed a slip and the slip kept showing all night. I finally took the slip off. I'd definitely get this dress again.

Unforgettable dress!
Fit wonderfully. I wore spanx, material is thick stretchy but pulls and can see through the knitting so the dark undergarments made me feel more comfortable. Tons of compliments and the bell sleeve is the prefect flair.

Tight thick material but very comfortable and surprisingly warm. Material is thick so not as flowy as I had thought it would be but was an amazing dress. Loved it and could be worn in so many different ways

The sleeves!
I have a love/hate relationship with this dress. I'll start by noting that I have a large chest and relatively wide (but not super wide) hips, and I'm 5'8". So I think it may fit differently if you're more narrow, shorter, curvier, etc. the material hugs you. Anyway.. The top half is amazing- the bell sleeves are super cute and I got a lot of compliments on them. It was form fitting, but the very conservative neckline balanced it out well. The bottom- it's bandage style material, so it rode up really easily when I moved, and it was short to begin with! I rented this for a Valentine's Day date/party so I was walking and dancing a lot and feeling very self conscious about exposing too much all night. I don't think sizing up would have helped me bc the top fit so perfectly.

Fun and sassy for a GNO
While I liked the dress, it arrived with a hole under the arm. Thankfully, it wasn't noticeable since I didn't go around with my arms in the air! It fit well and the material was nice and thick and gave the dress structure. It was fun and eye catching for a night out with friends!

Awesome dress-so high fashion-in a sea of LBD, this one popped.
This dress fit beautifully. I did not find that it was large underneath the sleeves as others did. The material is thick but it kept me warm during a 10° Connecticut night. I received compliments all night. In a sea of little black dresses, this one popped.

Fun LBD
This dress is REALLY cute and form fitting. I wore with spanx and it looked much more forgiving. Sleeves are fun. Had to do my makeup and hair with the dress on because it "slips" (i.e. Squeezes) over your head - no zipper or anything. A little hard to dance in because the skirt rides up- but shouldn't be a huge problem for shorter gals.

Gorgeous LBD
The fabric is thicker than you can see in the pictures. It's a heavy textured fabric that gives it even more of a couture look. Very pretty for our fancy night out.

LBD with a twist
I don't usually wear black dresses because I don't feel like they stand out, and I was unsure of renting this one because it doesn't look like my style, however I ended up really liking it. It was perfect for a cold fall date night. I wore the small and didn't even try on the medium. I liked the balance of shorter skirt with high neck. You do have to slip it over your head which is a slight inconvenience, but not horrible. The material is on the thicker side, but there are black sort of sheer lines throughout which I did not realize were there as you can't see that in the pics! I tried to choose a photo where you could barely sort of see it in the chest area! You could see my bra through it but not significantly and definitely not enough to where I felt needed an undershirt. I did pair with tights and tall black boots. May have been classier with all black tights, but I liked the way it turned out. It was comfortable and I didn't have any trouble eating with the sleeves. I mean as long as you're eating with silverware you should be fine, just watch reaching across table for anything (like feeding a bite to your significant other). I chose to not wear a necklace, I liked the clean look better. Just earrings and my rings. I am glad I went out on a limb and rented this dress. I can't say that I'd rent it again, because there's so many out there, but I did like it and fiancé sure did too.

Very high fashion, great for many occasions
So stylish! Got so many compliments! I'm quite short and found the sleeves to be too long. I had to roll them up completely while eating and rolled a bit in the shoulder for normal use.

Compliments by people I wouldn't expect them from!
I didn't realize how tight it was on the bottom. That made me only give it 4 stars. Otherwise lovely and a good amount of formality. Wore it to a research banquet.

I really loved this dress. I wore it to a concert with over the knee boots. Fits really good just a wee bit short. It hits mid thigh so its definitely a mini dress.

Not for petite women
I thought this dress was really cute, but on someone else. I have a petite frame and the bell sleeves almost covered my hands. I think it would be nice on someone tall and slender but not right for me.

Classy and easy!
This is a stretchy dress that clings to the body. It's comfortable and hits a little above the knee. I thought I'd have to wear the L but it was too long and the sleeves would've been further than my hands. I really liked it and would wear it again.

Sleek and comfortable
I very rarely wear black to a wedding but I just loved this piece. The dress is simple but the sleeves and the neckline make it more formal. The material is form fitting so you can't really hide too much under it but since it is thick, it gives problem areas some forgiveness. I felt like it hugged in all of the right places. I rented the medium because I have a large bust but the way the material bunched a little bit around my chest and arms made me think a small could have been OK. Pair with colorful shoes and jewelry and this dress is a win!

Comfortable, warm dress for a Fall event!
I ordered this for a Fall wedding knowing it would be cold. The material is very thick so it certainly did it's job in keeping me warm. Loved the mock neck as well as the sleeves. The sleeves made this LBD a little different and more interesting. It is a tight fit. I usually wear Medium across the board but was able to wear the Small very comfortably. My biggest gripe is that I constantly found myself pulling it down as the tight fit did make it ride up and I wasn't comfortable with it being too short.
