Stand out LBD!
The dress fit and felt amazing!! I got so many compliments. The sleeves help make this dress different from most LBDs. You can dress this up or down! It is a form fitting dress so youll need the proper undergarments to smooth everything out.

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

Beautiful dress. Simple but different than the typical dress that everyone wears. Extremely comfortable, stretchy material. The medium felt fine, maybe the small would have also worked but I have a butt so preferred the medium.

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.

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!

LBD with a little something more!
I loved this dress! My husband loved this dress! I rented it for his birthday dinner. It is well-made, fitted without being too tight, and the bell sleeves gave it an edge over the average LBD. Yet another awesome rental from RTR. The large's sleeves were too long; medium fit better. Tip: Wear black undergarments because the fabric has a slightly sheer quality to it.

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.

Unique spin on your typical LBD
I love a good LBD. This dress was comfortable, sat at the right spot on my thigh, didn't ride up too much, and the thick material was great for a chilly fall night. A huge plus was that it didnt show my food baby post rehearsal dinner. Only cons I can think of is that food was difficult to eat with the sleeves (I had to roll them up) and that I had to wear bra inserts in addition to my push up bra to fill out the chest area.

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!

My birthday!
Snug, and a bit short even for my 5'5 frame. Very stretchy and flattering to my body. It was comfortable but also had an edge. Would recommend for party or more casual event.

Right when I saw this dress, I knew it had to be part of my next order! The fabric is pretty thick but stretchy. Wore a black bralette with the dress and received a ton of compliments! Would recommend!

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!

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.

Very nice black dress!
I rent this dress for my birthday dinner with the family. I normally wear size XS but with this dress that size is too tight for me. I wish it has a zipper on the back so it easier to put it on.

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!!

loved this dress
I agree with another renter that the medium felt baggy under the arms , so I went with the small even though it was a tiny bit shorter than I wanted. My profile info isn't showing up so will list it here. 53 years old, 5 ' 4" 135 athletic build 34 DD bust

I got compliments all night, felt beautiful in this dress and I also remained comfortable on TDay!
I believe the XS would have fit me best but this option was unavailable for this date.

Classy/Elegant for winter party!
Wore this to a work holiday party and received a ton of compliments! I like that the fabric was thick and kept me warm during the winter. It should be noted that there are lateral stripes and the strips are a bit see through, so wear a black bra. A great little spin on a LBD, would rent again!

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!

I wore this dress to a rehearsal dinner. It was perfect for the fall and I got so many compliments!
This dress fit true to size, however I did end up wearing the Large because I wanted it to be a little longer. You can barely tell in the picture, but it is textured similar to a bnadage dress, which was different. Loved the bell sleeves and high neckline. Very simple and chic.

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.

Loved this dress! I wore it to a work holiday party.
I absolutely love how thick the material is on this dress. It it perfect for winter. The material is like a really crisp thick textured spandex so it hugs your body but in a way that still allows you to move around, I was able to dance all night in the dress. I ordered a medium and a large as the backup. I couldn't really tell a difference between the 2 sizes, but because I'm 5'8" I went with the large for the extra length and still paired it with black tights. I loved the flared sleeves but I will say for a dinner event they were got in the way so I ended up having to roll them up while we ate so they weren't hitting other peoples plates. Overall I am very happy with the way the dress came and would definitely order it again!

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.

Perfect casual LBD
Fit was perfect. Stretchy and forgiving. Beware there are stripes that run vertical all over this dress that are see through when stretched. I wore a black bra and opaque black tights to keep it modest. Looked super cute with booties and big earrings. Would totally rent again!
