Amazing dress!

I actually rented this dress as my backup and ended up wearing it to a semi-formal event at an art museum because I felt so great in it. I loved the asymmetry on the bottom half. It made it more visually interesting than a regular full length gown. The dress was a stretchy, forgiving material; though, I did wear a pair of control top hose just to keep my gut in check. The regular length worked great with my 3 inch heels. I was comfortable all night and got a lot of compliments. Would for sure rent again. A really incredible first RTR experience, definitely not my last!

Comfiest dress ever

Rented this dress for a formal ball. The dress runs a bit large, so if you are between sizes I would go down one. The material is very stretchy and comfortable, and the shorter part of the dress did not ride up throughout the night. Very happy with this rental and loved the earrings I rented to go with it.

Very sexy! Very stretchy and comfortable!

I really liked this dress. I got so many compliments. It was a backup and I ended up wearing it when my first choice didn't fit. The fabric is very stretchy so it's a very easy fit. The short skirt is pretty short: I was kind of pulling it down all night, but the longer layer covers the back so you don't feel like you're on display. I would recommend sizing down. I'm usually an 8 and the 8L was a little too big. I also recommend that if you're 5'7" or taller, get the long.

RTR came through for me on my first rental!

At the time of renting this dress, this dress had no reviews. I had rented another dress from RTR, but that dress had a hole in it. After going through all of my dress options over the phone with a consultant, this was one of the only dresses still available for the time I needed it. Honestly, it was the best "mishap" ever! This dress looked better than the original I had picked out, it had AMAZING stretch so it looked wonderful on my curves, but didn't bandage me in. Super flattering and unique dress and I got so many compliments on this dress. I'm not always one to feel super confident when dressing up, but while in Nashville, I felt like a superstar in this dress! I didn't want to take this dress off it was that comfortable (it seriously felt like I was wearing leggings the entire night). I would HIGHLY recommend this dress and the RTR Customer Service was phenomenal as they overnighted this dress to me from NYC to Nashville, TN. Get this dress for your special night, you won't regret it!

Danced the night away in comfort

I rented this dress for a black tie wedding and I couldn't have made a better choice. It was actually the back up dress of my back up dress (my first two choices came back too damaged and I was sent the weong dress) HOWEVER, RTR (per usual) made everything better with their amazing customer service and helped me find this BA dress. I just had a baby two months ago, so I wanted to look sexy while still trying to hide my post oartum body. This dress dis the trick. It was comfortable, sexy, and hid my "baby belly" perfectly.

Sexy & Leggy

I recieved this dress as a back up and did not wear it because my first option worked out. However, i loved this dresss and would love to rent it for a different occassion (felt too sexy/"look at me"to wear to a wedding, but would be great for a gala or other formal affair). This dress is stretchy and runs large (even for the busty) so size down!

Elegant, sexy and comfortable

Loved the material of this dress. It was stretchy and soft, making it comfortable and forgiving. The high-low was also sexy and elegant at the same time. I got SO many compliments and felt amazing all night. I am 5'7", 134 pounds and found the 2L was perfect.

Comfortable, sexy but kept zipper twisting and bulged.

The fit of the dress was great, very comfortable material and perfect for those post baby kid sections. I didn't end up wearing the dress to the banquet because the zipper would lay flat and kept getting off center when I walked.

Made me look and feel gorgeous!

I am 5'6" tall and 140lbs. I ordered a size 6R and a size 4R. The 6R was a little too baggy on me, surprisingly, so I went with the 4R. It was a tiny bit snug, but I threw on a pair of spanx and I was good to go! It's much thinner material than I thought so panty lines are very visible. A thong should help with that. The length was perfect with a pair of heels. No dragging on the ground and it wasn't too short. I would definitely order this dress again. I got a ton of compliments!

It was a figure flattering dress with 2 parts, a shorter part and a longer overlay for the back.

Very fitted, but flattering with ruching on side and stretchy, but great material. I'm 5'4" and wore high heels, but the long back still touched the ground. Great dress, will rent again!

I wore this dress for a black tie wedding. I got tons of compliments! The fabric is stretchy and form fitting and is a perfect fit for those with a bit of shoulder or who want a classic yet sexy look. If I could have kept it I would! Love it!

So easy

This dress was actually my free back up, but it stole the show! It was the perfect length without heels, so when I put my heels on it was a little short but probably for the best! It was modest but sexy with the leg slit, and was very flattering. It was my first time with RTR and definitely won't be my last!

This was my first RTR experience and I will definitely be coming back. I'm 5'7" and got a 6R and it fit me perfectly. The dress was so comfortable and stretchy. We forgot to get a picture at the party so had a fun photo shoot when we got home. Can't wait for an occasion to rent again!

STYLIST REVIEW

This dress was extremely comfortable. This designer never has zippers so the fabric is always stretchy and amazing. It was a smidge big on me, mainly on the skirt underneath. It was long and big, didnt hug my booty. (but I am very straight and narrow) I would not wear a bra with this gown, but it can be worn with a strapless. Definitely would only wear this dress to a formal event.

Dress was so cute and comfy!

I am 5'6 and 190. Hourglass shape. I ordered the 14R and 12L. Usually wear a 14 or 16 but the 12L fit perfectly! This dress has some give too. A pair of spanx underwear would've make it better but it was 90+degrees out so nope to that! I wore 3-4inch high heels so the long was ideal versus the regular. Love the dress would buy it for sure!

Eye-catching and comfortable!

I LOVED this dress! I wore it to my husband's holiday party. It was so eye-catching and the cut is very unique. It was incredibly comfortable. It had so much stretch and the material is so giving that I actually could've gone down a size. Perfect for many different occasions.

SO comfortable!

This dress was kind of like wearing pajamas - in the BEST way! Awesome, stretchy fabric, but still looked nice. Very flattering! I would say it runs a little big, but overall great fit. I'm usually a 2/4 depending on how the dress fits and I honestly would have liked to try the 0 in this one, so size down for backup!

I read the reviews and so I chose a size smaller, when i typically go a size larger to fit my chest. Fabric was stretchy to accommodate my chest and the fit was perfect. I loved this dress and received tons of compliments all night!!

Loved this fun dress! Unique and playful!

I ordered a 6L and an 8L. I was in a huge hurry and accidentally wore the 6 but it worked. Received several compliments and my husband loved it on me! I just had our second baby so my stomach is not my strong point right now but I made it work by holding tummy in as much as possible. This dress was too short to wear spank with in my opinion but I was able to wear a strapless bra. I'm a 38DD so that's a must. Overall this dress was great! At 5'7 with three inch heels this was just long enough. I was skeptical because the lack of reviews and photos but I think it's just because it's new.

I loved this dress!!

I'm 5'7 and 143 and 34DD I chose the 8 over the 6 as I don't like tight. I like being comfortable in my clothes even if it's formal. This dress was so comfy and I enjoyed the short/long hemline. The fabric is soft and doesn't feel like it's catching fire when the sun hits it....we all know how black can feel. To sum it up, it's a winner.

Wore this dress to a formal nightclub and loved the way it showcased my legs.

Fit was extremely comfortable and very flattering. Material provided good coverage of undergarment lines. Loved the "teaser" look of the skirt as it was a little revealing when walking giving a very sexy look.

Beautiful and Unique Design!

I really enjoyed wearing this dress! I wish I could have kept it! It fit really well and the design was really pretty and unique. It seemed to fit me well in all the right places! Everyone seemed to really like the design, so I received many compliments! I could feel a few places on the dress where the fabric was starting to have some wear, but luckily it wasn't something you could see, so it wasn't a problem.

Beautiful Dress!

I wore this for my friend's gala fundraiser. The fit was great and it was comfortable while the high/low hemline was sexy! It was a little long for me even with heels on, but the regular length was not available when I ordered.

Effortless but sexy look.

The long dress portion covered the entire back of the dress and half the front, made it really helpful in terms of not worrying about things like bending over. Material was comfortable but did not seem super high end.

Wonderful wedding with lots of friends and dancing.

This dress was perfect! It was flattering, comfortable and looked amazing. I liked that I could dress it up with a few accessories. The material was breathable through a night of dancing. I loved that it was formal, but I didn't feel over dressed at all.

007 Chic

This dress was perfect to wear to a James Bond-themed gala! The asymmectrical look was eye-catching and showed off a little leg. It made me feel sophisticated and sexy! The regular length was exactly right with a pair of 3-inch heels and didn't get in the way of walking or dancing throughout the evening. The stretchy material made it super comfortable to move in, although it wasn't the best to hide tummy flaws; if you're self conscious about that area I'd definitely suggest some spanx or something underneath. The upper half and neckline were a little loose on me despite being large-chested, and the back kind of rippled along the zipper, but that's probably just the result of having a shorter torso. This dress needed to be worn with a strapless bra, since the racerback straps showed near the shoulders. This was my first rental with RTR and it could not have turned out better! Will definitely be using them again for future events!

I loved the stretch of the material, which made it super comfortable!

I originally ordered the size 8, which fit, but I always prefer a slightly larger size for a little more room. I found going a size up (for my preference) to a size 10, was just slightly more comfortable. The material has some stretch to it (without appearing stretchy) so it was super comfortable to wear all night! Perfect with heels. Without heels the dress touched the ground (although, I did order the longer size). Highly recommend this dress!

Love this dress and would rent again.

The long side is so fun and chic. I wore it with no jewelry and sheer black hose. I am usually a size zero but ordered the 2 as a back up. Ultimately I ended up wearing the size 2 as this dress fits snug around the waist. Overall lovely and felt very modern.

Great dress, great customer service!

Fit was very good, not to tight, not too loose. I just loved the dress and so did my husband. I'm a very athletically built women and the chocker cut was perfect for me. The company was also very great to work with. I had to change the rental due to a change in date of the event and they were very helpful with this.
