The fabric hides all flaws. Great for big chested. Choose smaller size or ruffle looks funny. Needed the long at 5'6"

Fits like a glove!

I know it's a pretty cliché to say "fits like a glove" but La Petite Robe is an absolutely amazing brand. I had tried a similar dress on in blue at my local Saks and fell in love with it. I couldn't justify the almost $1,000 price tag for one night though. So when I received a "New Arrivals" email showcasing this dress I got extremely excited. The dress is a scuba-like material that is very flattering and forgiving. You can pull it on from the bottom (the tag actually directs you to do this) this takes away the worry of messing up your hair and makeup. It's a thicker material, so you don't have to worry about undergarments. I was able to wear a regular bra with this and was sooooo comfortable. I would highly recommend renting this, it was perfect for a black tie wedding.

This dress is stunning! I rented this for a black tie event.

There is no zipper- get dress before you do your hair! The dress has some stretch to it which is perfect for a curvy body! The length was perfect- I wore 4 inch heels.

Didn't end up wearing it as I ended up not wanting long but still beautiful.

Dress is beautiful - has a bit of stretch but really thick as well. The cutout is classy and the length was to my ankles at 5'7.

Received many compliments!

Dress was a little difficult to get into, no zipper! But once it was on it was comfortable all night. The material is like scuba material so it was very easy to wear with it still being formal. I usually wear a size 8 but i had to wear the size 6. 6 was snug but wearable, the 8 would have probably fit fine as well.

Bold, elegant with a modern twist.

Amazing. sleek, comfortable, beautiful dress you pull on OVER YOUR HEAD. No zippers! It runs big so size down one. The scuba stretchy material enables you to pull this on headfirst but heed this advice: put the dress on before you do hair and make up! Slip on the dress, then wear a men's shirt or robe over it while you do hair or make up. Last and most important - if you're going to apply deodorant do it after you put on the dress to avoid the dreaded white deodorant streaks that will (without a doubt, trust me) appear on your dress when you pull it on over your head. Follow these tips and you'll be good to go for any formal affair!

LOVE this dress!

Material feels like thick yoga pants, which makes it extremely comfortable. The slits and ruffles are super gorgeous. I wear 8 or 10 in jeans and wore the 8 equivalent in this dress.

Stylist Review

A stunning, sexy black-tie gown! This fabric is stretchy and so very comfortable, and the cutout gives it just enough edge to make a black tie look a lot more memorable. At 6'0, the size 44R in this gown was a few inches above the ground on me. I recommend sizing up for your backup size if you're curvy, however there is a lot of give to this fabric and it is overall true-to-size. It's important to note that there is no zipper so you do need to step into this dress. It's the perfect opportunity to showcase that bold pair of stilettos or a pair of statement earrings.

Striking and comfy

This dress fit like a glove. I measure 5'3" and 32-27-38 and the 42R was perfect. I still had some room in the hips so it didn't pull. The dress is well-made with thick wetsuit-like fabric and didn't crease from wear. There is not a lot of room in the skirt for striding so I had to take smaller steps than usual but I didn't mind. Highly recommend!

Sexy and unique dress!

I was worried about this dress, since I am usually between a size 0 and 2, but it fit absolutely perfect! It is a slip on…but is very stretchy, so it wasn’t too difficult to put on. I received lots of compliments at the wedding. My only complaint is that it is sewn very low at the bottom, so it was a little bit difficult to walk in. However, I got used to it...definitely didn’t stop me from dancing the night away!

There is no zipper- put deodorant on after you're wearing the dress!!

the dress made me look great. was perfect for my black tie wedding. very simple and elegant.

the dress was a perfect fit. i have a thicker body and the dress made my curves look great. the stretchy fabric made it easy to dance in all night. i'm also short 5'2'', and the regular fit was fine, my heels weren't that tall maybe 3 inches, and i had no trouble moving around. the only con i could see was that if you don't have big boobs the top of the dress wouldn't be flattering for you.

If you want to feel sexy as heck rent this dress!

WOW. All I can say is I am SO SO glad that whoever ruined the backup size of my original dress did that because I got this one as a 'consolation' dress from RTR. I rented it in the 38L and the 40L - I'm usually between a 0/2. I am 5'6.5" and I definitely needed the long - I wore it with some great 4 inch Ted Baker "Amenoa" shoes and it was the perfect length of just skimming the floor. The material is a scuba-like material, without being terribly restrictive. You step into it and pull on - DO NOT put on deodorant before you put it on or you might get it on it and it's hard to get off. The getting on part is a little cumbersome but once it's on it fits like a glove. I could have worn the 40L but it seemed just a little bit roomier so I went with the 38L. It's stretchy so if you're between sizes you'll probably fit in the size down just fine. It does limit your stride a little, which takes some getting used to. I wish there was a bit of a slit up the leg, but to be honest that might have been over-the-top sexy so never mind I don't wish that. If you're very large chested the slit across the chest might be a too much for a wedding - it was just enough on me that it was tasteful. If you are flat chested it would probably look really awkward. The best part was even though it's a very form-fitting, flattering dress I felt no need for spanx because of that cool ruffle thing on it (impossible to see in photos, no photo could really capture how cool it looks). It disguised all of the potential food-babies.

super flattering and interesting dress.

after the dresses i selected for backup were out and my main choice was not a great fit, i picked this out at the RTR store. it's just a black dress, but the detailing and the cut make it special. i loved the structure of it and the fact that it had some stretch at the bust. only issue is that there's no zipper, so you have to put it on over your head, which can lead to mad deodorant stains - not cute. otherwise, this was the perfect dress for a black tie event. i received a lot of compliments all night.

Showstopper!

This dress couldn't have fit more perfectly! The material is so comfortable and hugs the body, and the cut narrows the waist and accentuates the hips. The ruffle that wraps around the front masks the tummy, which is great if it's a problem area. I wore it without a bra; I think that the opening in the front would make it difficult to wear one, as it goes pretty low. It runs true to size, but the regular length was still a little long on me at 5'4", even with heels on. Still, perfection!

Comfortable and classic, yet sexy!

Fabulous fit. Snug, but not constricting. Never had to worry about shifting, pulling, or wrinkling fabric. Be aware though, that the bottom is super skinny so I had to take tiny steps and my shoes showed completely.

A comfortable dress that is VERY easy to wear!

This dress is a surprise stunner. The stretchy fabric, while somewhat scuba-like, is actually quite luxurious and allows for tons of movement and give while still cutting a form-fitting shape. I was able to wear a regular bra (always a plus) and felt completely comfortable all night long. The cutout neckline is a nice surprise, and the peplum-like ruffles down the right side of the dress are fun details (that don't photograph well, unfortunately). I saw in other comments that the narrow / column-like bottom of the dress didn't allow for much movement or big walking strides, but I didn't find that at all. I danced the night away at our black tie wedding and plan on renting this one again.

I wore this dress to a very formal NYE affair.

The dress fit perfectly. It is very flattering and totally easy to wear. The length was great...I am 5'6"...and I was able to wear high heels. The armholes are cut so that your arms look great and any side arm fat is fully covered. I love this dress and received many compliments.

Perfect Substitution!!!

My original order for a Sunday wedding was not left by UPS. In a panic I called RTN Saturday morning and told them UPS did not leave my package and I was unable to get it until the Monday which would be too late since wedding was on Sunday. RTR informed me that there was a Chicago location in my area and that's where I picked this lucky dress. It was a great substitution for the original outfit I had planned. I felt great, slimming and very comfortable, easy to dance in all night!!!

This dress was very beautiful, elegant, flattering and comfortable. I might have wanted one size smaller, but the store didn't have it. I got it the same day as the event. I only wish I'd have had another occasion to wear it.

Classic black dress with modern neckline

This is a great dress with beautiful detail on the neckline! It fits small, definitely European sizing, but has nice stretch and is very flattering. The length was good on me and I'm VERY short, so I imagine it would be wayyy too short on someone who is tall. Personally, my only issue was that my bra peeking out as the night went on. I should have worn a strapless, but it was okay when I left the house, so I didn't think it would be an issue. I'm busty and it fit well, but I think it also would have looked nice on someone who is not as busty. Getting the dress on is tough! You have to step into it and NOT put it over your head! All in all, I was very pleased.

I received so many compliments on this dress!

VERY GOOD QUALITY. Love how thick and stretchy. However, this designer runs large. My friend who is also an Unlimited client told me to order a size 4 because she had worn the designer before. I am 5'9 and a pretty solid size 8/10. She was right. It was big, but didn't look bad...I just went with it and when asked to take a picture, I had my husband gather material in the back. Lol! I would absolutely rent this designer again, but will for sure order a size 4 and 6 instead of an 8 and a 10.

Classy Dress

This is definitely a classy dress. I felt it ran a bit short but didn't take away from the class. The slit in the chest is a nice touch but had been a bit stretched out so found myself tugging at it to not reveal bra. Otherwise, very classy, thick fabric to hide the mom-of-three children in her 40's factor.

Excellent customer service! Both online and in-store.

Fits like a glove! Never would've chosen this but my first dress never arrived so I was able to go to the store and this was about all they had left in my size. A bit hard to walk in because it is tight all the way down to the floor but otherwise perfect! Lots of compliments!

This dress is so comfortable! I felt great all night!

The fit is awesome. Hides all the flaws and just super comfortable. Be careful with your hair/makeup- you have to put this dress over your head to get it on! I usually wear a 6-8 and had to get a 4 in this dress. It was still roomy in my top. I tend to be much smaller up top then my bottom.

The dress was a hit! I loved it!

The dress fit like a glove. The fabric was stretchy and didn’t feel restrictive and I was able to dance with ease. You don’t even need to wear a bra with the dress because of the support from the upper part of the dress. My only call out is that if you need to get your hair done for an event or plan on having your hair in an up-do, this dress isn’t the best for that. There is no zipper, and it isn’t easy to get it over your head gently.

Flattering Dress

I wore the 44R dress. It was shorter than I preferred but it still looked fine. The dress was very comfortable and is made of scuba type material that is very flattering on the body. A negative about the dress is that the leg opening is not very wide, making it only possible to make small steps.

Fit was beautiful and felt gorgeous all night.

Only con- no zipper so dress had to be pulled over head and was a tight fit so I was a little worried my hair would not survive, but it ended up fine. Would have liked a zipper so I did not have to pull a long dress over my head. Other than that, the dress was a dream!

Gala event

Sizing was an issue. I am not familiar with European sixes and my stylist may not have been either as I ended up with a 40. I couldn't get my big toe in this dress. Looks like it would work well for tall and slender ladies!

Beautiful

This is a very comfortable dress. I am only 5'4, so the dress seemed to be fairly short, but worked for me- I usually have a hard time finding dresses that are a good length. I also was able to wear a regular bra which was AMAZING since I am a 32G/FF. The material was a little strange- kind of like scuba material, but it was comfy and good for hiding any lumps/bumps you might be worried about.

I absolutely LOVE this dress!

This dress was amazing! I absolutely loved it. I'm 5'6" (maybe 5'7") and curvy. I went to the store and met with a stylist and tried on the short version of this dress in red and absolutely loved it but felt that it was a little too sexy for the event. When I found out it came in black and long I went with it. It's stretchy and has no zipper, so it's super comfy and you can still walk in it. I got the 42R and 44R and went with the 42 because I liked it tighter and the 44 just didn't look right. I wish I got 42L because it was a little too short with my heels on. I normally hate my hips in tight dresses, but the detailing in the front was so flattering. I'm probably going to rent the red one for another event over the summer. I never wanted to take this dress off and I got a TON of compliments!

I wore this dress for a Gala. The fit was great and I did not have to mess with it at all throughout the night. I wore it with small heels and gold jewelry. I would highly recommend it!

Stunning dress

The material of this dress is incredibly flattering. The material is thick enough that it hides imperfections. I received compliments all night. I wore it to a black-tie wedding in the winter. I paired it with a black faux-fur shawl. This dress is cut short, so I would recommend considering a long. Otherwise, your entire shoe may show.

Really beautiful but difficult to walk in and too conservative for me.

Structural and beautiful. I liked the material, but I can imagine it might be warm. Bottom line is that while it was pretty and angular, I found it too difficult to walk in and too uptight for my personal style.
