showstopper!
This dress was a HUGE HIT! I'd never used RTR before, and I'd never work this particular designer. The fabric was slightly thick, so it smoothed any imperfections, and I felt very comfortable. I wore the size 40 in a long length. I'm about 5'6", and measure 34"x27"x36" and the 40L fit perfectly. It hugged just like it should, and the back was the pop I was looking for! I would advise staying true to size or smaller and maybe getting the L length if you are unsure because this fabric will shimmy up a little. This dress is great for medium to smaller-chested, as there is a shelf bra thing in it. If my future RTR rentals are this good, then I could def see myself using RTR again!

Amazing fit and stunning back
I wore this dress for NYE and I love the fit! The details in the back is what truly make the dress. I am 5'11 and would have ordered the long but this wasn't available, so the dress was a little short on me.

I felt great in this gown!! The fabric is not flimsy, and I added a thin, gold chain belt !
Perfect fit! The boat neck is beautiful, but the back steals the spotlight! I wore with a sticky, backless bra. Selected my red and gold Roberto Cavalli heels, gold hoop earrings, flashy bracelet and statement ring & the thin, gold belt ... such a classy dress!!

Wonderful dress a little long for shorties and hard on busty women!
If you're a busty girl this dress my not be for you. If you're under 5 2 this dress may also not be for you. I wore 4 inch heels and it was still too long. It was a beautiful dress with many compliments. I squeezed into the smaller size and its a spandexy material that hides all insecurities. Overall great dress. I just wish i was a little taller and it fit better on my double ds.

I loved this dress however it has no zipper so it's difficult to get in and it's very "body con" so I recommend sizing up.

Loved this dress!
This dress actually made this 27 weeks preggo lady feel beautiful and put together. The back is amazing, and the fabric is thick while still being stretchy. Felt very expensive. I usually wear a 6 without the baby bump, so I ordered an 8 and it worked perfectly. I will say that I am 5'3" and didn't have to use fashion tape or anything with my three inch heels, so this might not work for super tall ladies. Would totally order again.

Best dress ever!!!
This dress is absolutely stunning. The fit is amazing. It hugs every curve perfectly. The only "bad" thing was that it was a little difficult putting it on because there are no zippers. But overall this dress is a 10++!!!

Fit like a glove!
After my original dress did not fit, this one was overnighted to me and it was amazing! The material had just the right amount of give (elastic quality) to slide over my slim frame and wider hips. The material is great quality, thick but not too hot. And the back cage gave this simple black dress exactly the "pop" it needed. I was complimented all night! :) If I had to rent again, I'd go for the long length. The regular was just right without shoes but when paired with 4 inch heels, the hem sat well above the ground. I prefer a gown to just sweep the floor with heels. Other than length this was another RTR success story!!!

Gorgeous Dress
This dress fit like a glove. I rented the 38L and the 40L and both fit but I liked the 38L better. I was worried about being hot since it's long sleeved but I danced all night and I was fine. I would highly recommend this dress!

The back makes this dress amazing!
I loved this dress. The material is very thick and it hugs your body well. I normally wear a 2 and I ended up wearing the 38. I am only 5'3 so I had to wear 5 inch heels to keep it from hitting the ground. I wore this on a cold night and the thick material kept me warm. I didn't wear a bra with it and it was fine. Great shape and felt great on. It was a fun dress to wear on an anniversary date with my husband!

I love this brand and this dress more than any other I have rented so far on RTR.
Wore this for a black tie wedding. Although form fitting it was very comfortable. Spanx helped. Incredible dress. I wish I owned it. Would definitely rent again. Literally cannot say one bad thing about this dress or say how much I love it enough.

The fabric was AH-mazing
The size was perfect for me. It was long which I loved because I wanted to wear heels anyways. I was able to sit, stand, walk and eat all comfortably! The dress holds everything in as well. Seriously the best! So many compliments. I felt elegant as well. Can't wait to get another dress!

Classic black dress with stunning back
This dress hugs all of your curves in the right places- it was snug, but had a smooth and comfortable material that flattered my figure. I wore it for a black tie affair and got many compliments. I would recommend for any formal occasion!

Amazing!
The fit was great! I'm 6'1 and it wasn't a bad choice with my 2 in heel I had. It didn't drag the floor which I would have love but giving I'm so tall it almost impossible. It was only 2 inches off the ground! My ass looks phenomenal! FYI I wore a adhesive bra that I got from target with the U shape in it! I got a half slip and that kept my dress from riding up majority of the night. It was very comfortable and the material was very stretchy! I will definitely rent again!

Held everything in and up! The dress was stunning. I added a chain belt to make it pop. Arms are tight but the material is stretchy. Loved it and highly recommend it even for very large busted ladies.( no bra needed)

This dress was perfect for a military formal event.
Loved this dress. I am normally a size 10 but ordered a 12 because most RtR dresses I've ordered have run a little small. It fit perfectly. The only thing that kept this dress from 5 stars was the lack of a zipper.

The back of this dress was phenomenal.
I am pear shaped, and this dress really accentuated my curves. Do not recommend if you are going to be in a warm environment in this dress- dress is very heavy. Loved the back. Was the perfect length with 3" heels.

Stunning NYC Flagship Last-Minute Rental
I found this dress via a last-minute rental at the NYC Flagship store. My entire experience was easy and fun. I was in and out of the store within an hour, and found this fabulous dress for the GLAAD Media Awards. The back is stunning, and I was comfortable all night.

Fits like a glove - no fuss beautiful dress!
I received so many compliments for this dress. It was the perfect balance to blend in and stand out at a black tie event. I wore the 38L with 4 inch heels and no bra. I think the 40L would have worked totally fine, but I sized down to ensure the chest was very fitted and I could get away without wearing an annoying strapless bra! The fabric is odd - I think another review described it as a wet suit and that is pretty accurate. But once you slip it on it's a no fuss dress! It stays in place, lays well against the body and moves really well as you walk. This dress was beautiful and so comfortable - I would absolutely rent it again!

Fabulous Dress for a Fancy Night Out...and no help needed getting it on!
This dress looks plain Jane from the front, but turn around and bam, it's smoking hot! And because it's from Chiara di Bona you just have to pull it on. No zippers or clasps to deal with. I wore this dress for a Saturday night at the opera and felt fabulous for an evening out on the town. Definitely find a reason to rent this dress.

I loved everything about this dress! It was long enough (44L) that I could wear it with heels (I'm 5'9). The dress was beautiful, I wore it to a gala and received countless complements from strangers! The dress was comfortable and I completely recommend it to anyone thinking about renting it!
