This is the most comfortable dress I've ever worn.
People aren't kidding when they call it the "yoga pants of dresses." It's made out of a stretchy, super comfy material just like yoga pants, making it the most comfortable dress I've ever worn in my life. I'm a very pear shaped individual, with hips almost a full 12" larger than my bust, so I normally have to get dresses that I buy tailored to fit one or the other. Not this dress. The stretch and thick material meant it fit my booty and my bust. I actually sized down so it wasn't gappy in the bust, and it still stretched over my bottom without making breathing or sitting uncomfortable. I hear this designer uses similar fabrics for all of their gowns, so I'll definitely be checking out more of these pieces. In terms of length, I got a long, which I don't normally wear because I'm 5'5". I wore short, 2 inch heals and this dress fell perfectly at ground level. If you're taller than 5'8", this dress will probably be a bit short on you, even with the long.

Awesome first rental!
I loved wearing this dress! It was a perfect fit and hugged all of my curves. I wore this to a black tie wedding and received compliments all night! The only con would be that it didn't touch the floor but it was a great chance to show off my shoes. All in all, great dress! Will definitely be renting again.

Fit like a glove
This dress is made of a thick, stretchy material that isn't overly tight. It fit in all the right places, and was very form flattering. I felt super sexy but definitely classy. Plus, you can pretty much wear any bra with it, though I'd recommend getting some tape to keep the bra straps hidden under the gown straps. So many compliments! It was INCREDIBLY comfortable. It does restrict leg movement slightly but nothing that would get in the way of walking or dancing. But don't plan to do any serious lunging in this dress.

Great fit! Fast shipping! Easy return!
Rented this dress as one of the choices for her to wear to her upcoming prom. Although this dress was beautiful and the fit great, she ended up choosing a different dress. Length was perfect with 3 inch heels.

Difficult to get on
This dress has no zipper so you need to pull it over your head. It was a little on the long side and the fabric was not very forgiving. I feel like my imperfections were not hidden. Pretty dress but for fabric reasons I give it a 3. I didn't wear it out.

It was a black tie wedding. the dress fits the event perfectly.
The fit was great. I'm so glad I ordered this dress the day before my event because the one I had rented before was not that great. the size was perfect, it is a little short if you plan on wearing 3 + heels and want the gown to hit the floor. Other than that, I received many compliments that night.

Fantastic dress, so comfortable!
I rented this dress for a black tie awards show. This dress is perfect for curvy figures, it hugs your shape well, but in a dignified way. I read all the reviews with measurements similar to mine and picked my size from there. My first choice size was perfect (44L). I'm barely 5'6", wore 3.5" heels and the dress didn't quite touch the ground (you can see my shoes in the photo). The only thing I can nitpick about is the top part of the dress that goes across the chest isn't taut-even with my broad shoulders-so it bows out a bit. Overall, I couldn't have been happier with this dress.

Love the length for short girls
This dress was very pretty! I loved how it flared out at the bottom and wasn't too long with heels (I'm short.) I ended up wearing another dress but had a hard time deciding. It definitely shows off curves and is a bit hard to get on and off without getting make up on it since there is no zipper. Still, this is a great choice.

I loved this dress! SO flattering if you have an hourglass shape!
I hover between a 12-14 in most formal dresses, that is what I got for this dress and I would recommend to others to order your standard formal sizes. This dress felt comfortable, so flattering and very classy. I think this is a great shape for hourglass, specifically fuller bust, figures!

KNOCK OUT DRESS
This was the backup dress I rented for a black-tie gala and it was a million times better than the dress I had selected. This dress is EVERYTHING. I received so many compliments. Perfect fit, perfect draping, the material is so flattering - thick enough to pull everything in without Spanx. I would totally rent another dress from this brand in the future. Oh, and I'm only 5' tall and the "R" length grazed the floor with my 4" heels.

Classy but sexy
This dress fit perfectly. There are no zippers so you have to put the dress on over your head... beware of that before you finish your hair and makeup! It hugged all of my curves and the material is buttery. My only complaint is that I'm a little curvier on the bottom and had to pull the dress down quite a few times. I probably wouldn't suggest this dress for $150 again though.

Backup nye wedding dress!
Rented this as a backup for a New Year's Eve wedding and instead went with a royal blue mermaid number from the same designer! That being said, this dress was gorgeous and looked amazing- clings in the right spots but the fabric is thick And panty lines are not an issue- no spanx needed! Would rent again!

Perfect Fit!
Wore this to a NYE black tie wedding. The fit was perfect! I typically wear a 12 in almost every pant and fit like a glove. It was comfortable to dance around in all night! I'm 5'8 and wore 4" heels, and only a peep of my foot showed. Would rent this dress again!!!

While this designer makes amazing dresses, this was not my fave. It didn't snug like other made. Didn't wear it.

Gorgeous Black Formal - Amazing Figure Flattering Fabric, Shape and Style
Snug, thick scuba-like fabric this designer has used on many dresses I've loved. I was able to wear regular bra and didn't need spanx or slip. Dress smoothed all my curves. Slight sheen to fabric, so comfortable and fancy and pretty. I wore it as a costume (fallen angel) but would have been perfect for a formal. You will love!!

Very nice design, was so sad that it was too big.
Too big in hip and across chest. Very thick material, good for fall/winter events. Needed a 40 instead of 42.

Flattering, super comfortable, but runs short (with heels).
Flattering, super comfortable, but runs short (with heels). I am 5'7 and had on 2inch heels and the dress came to the top of my feet (looked like "high waters"). Stretchy material. Love the top portion- unique.

Classy gown
This is the most comfortable form fitting dress I've ever worn! Body hugging in all the right places, but elegant at the same time. If you have narrow shoulders, don't be afraid to sign down. The 42R did fit, but gapped in the front and back across the neckline. I'm a 32 DDD and didn't need to wear a bra, which was a huge plus. I'm 5'3"and I wore 3 inch heels which made the hemline just touch the floor. For reference: I'm 130lbs and a typical size 6, pear shape.

First time using RTR ... love it!
Fit like a glove. Didn't need a slip. Definitely get a long as suggested. I wore heels and it was a perfect fit. I got two sizes to be safe and felt svelte in the 46L. I am hourglass shaped which this dress highlights well.

Going to wear to Daighter's Wedding! Perfect camouflage dress for less than perfect figures!
I am going to hold onto this until the 10 is available and then switch them on my Unlimited membership. It runs a bit large & a smidge short, so if you're tall, definitely order the Tall version! This dress is a miracle dress. Makes me look 20 pounds lighter, fit vs. lumpy and 10 years younger!!! Think I will buy the 10 - IF I can ever get it!

I needed a glamorous formal dress for a spectacular wedding and this dress fit the bill .
This dress fit awesome! It's a wonderful stretchy thick material, that hugged in all the right places. I'm very large busted (36G) and I didn't need a bra for this dress. I'm 5'7 and wore a 4 inch heel and the bottom just came to the top of my shoe. I do have a little belly so I wore spanx and that smoothed out that area. I was very impressed with this dress.

Super comfortable and classic black dress
This was a back up dress that I didn't end up wearing but I did love it! Super comfortable, stretchy fabric, great fit. A little bit long (I am very short) but I could have managed it with heels. I ordered a 38R and I expected it to be tighter (I wasn't sure if I would be able to get it on at all based on reviews) but, it fit like a glove maybe even a teeny bit loose. Simple, classic black dress. Wish I had a reason to wear it!

Great dress! Easy to wear!
Super comfortable, elegant but not too "over the top". I wore it to a black tie wedding. I probably would have liked to wear a 46R but it wasn't available my dates. The dress does run short; I'm 5'4" and with small heels I felt it could have been longer on me - I was pulling it down all night. But overall a great dress!

LBD that will fit everyone
I took off a star for the fabric. It is like strech pants, kinda shiny. After I saw a woman wearing this dress in her 9th month I understood why mine was streched out in the stomach! It did not fit perfectly but it was close enough. Everyone said it looked great and it was very comfortable for a long day/night. Length was pefect for me with 2 inch heels and im only 5'3" so I'd be aware of that. Overall a lovely dress that made me so happy that I had unlimited so I could send it back!

Rent This Dress!!!
I never wear fitted dresses because I'm insecure about my tummy, but this dress was incredible! I wore compression spandex to smooth out lines, but the dress is perfectly cut to flatter your body! Plus it's incredibly comfortable and classy. I'm 5'7" so I ordered the long, but I think I was sent the regular because it skimmed the floor with flats on. I paired it with black and gold sandals and Ben-Amun's Ronnie Earrings (<highly recommend). I typically wear sizes 8, 10, and 12 in dresses, but I wore a size 6 (44) in this dress, and it was perfect (and still not skin tight)! Definitely order 2 sizes down - it's super stretchy, so there's nothing to worry about. If you're nervous about the length being too short, order the long and tape the hem...because of the material, it wouldn't be noticeable. Seriously try this dress out!

This dress is amazing. The fit was perfect, despite my large chest. The material is thick enough that no Spanx are necessary, but the downside is that it's a bit warm. Love, love, love!

Comfortable and easy to wear!
This dress is probably best for those with a larger chest. I'm a 36C and found the front area to be sightly baggy. It wasn't enough to make me not want to wear the dress though and it was extremely comfortable. Almost like yoga pants! It's worth noting that the material is slightly heavier and makes it a bit warm for summer.

Beautiful dress! Fit like a glove
I didn't like the dress initially rented so I went to the RTR store in search of a different dress. Customer service was excellent. They really wanted to make sure I was happy. The stylist pulled a few dresses for me and this one was the first one I tried on. Loved it. The fabric is heavy but stretchy so it literally fits like a glove. Accentuates all the curves. I felt great in it and got lots of compliments. The only thing is that it's a tad short. I'm 5'4" and with s high heel it was just a tad short but in the end it was fine. Very happy with my selection.

Great fit, a little too short!
This dress was so comfortable. It was a great fit in that it was stretchy and hug right to you. However, because of the stretch, it would slide up as you walked. I am 5'11" and it didn't reach the floor. I wore short heels for a black tie optional wedding. It was also pretty good for the heat of Houston in the summer - until we got to the dance floor and it did not breathe whatsoever. Wish it was a little longer, but overall, pleased with my Unlimited rental!

Perfect "bump" dress
I'm pretty sure this is the absolute most "bump friendly" dress! The material is thick and stretchy, so no worries about panty lines, etc. I was able to wear my bra with the dress (just used some fashion tape to keep the straps attached to the dress). It's fuss-free and flattering. I'm 31 weeks pregnant and felt completely comfortable all night. Highly recommend!!

Very elegant but runs large and short
Beautiful dress but was not able to wear it due to the fit. It was quite large and too short for me. I called customer service which explained if I exchanged it for a smaller size and the long, it would only be roughly 2" longer than the regular which would still be too short for me at 5' 8". It's a shame because I really did like the style and fabric.

Beautiful dress but simply not for me
This dress was I think simply too much for my stature. While it all technically fit, the neckline was a little too big across the shoulders, but the bust fit perfectly fine. It made a small crimping of fabric at the neckline that was unattractive. Also perhaps I was simply too short at 5' because the trumpet effect toward the knee was just not pronounced enough on me, I it might have hit too low to really make a splash. It was a great dress, and fit comfortably, but it simply didn't look right on my frame.
