I would have loved to wear the dress sent to me but it was too snug in the hips.
Petite 50 year old - 5'2, 110 pounds. Loved the quality and style of the dress. I ordered size 38 and 40. Only the 38 was available., it was too snug in the hips. Order up a size if you have hips.

Comfortable and chic!
After my first dress didn't fit RTR sent this as a replacement and I ended up loving it! I could have gone one size smaller but it was still flattering. I paired it with a gold necklace and some black booties to dress it up at bit. It's great that it was so versatile!

Great!
I rented this dress for a after the rehearsal wedding party in January. The material of this dress is thicker, making it perfect for a colder weather month. I am 5'3" and I thought the length was great. Loved the pockets and the exposed zipper -- both added just a little something extra to a traditionally simple black dress.

Great, comfy dress!
Cute dress! This was a back up dress I had available for a bachelorette party. It was too cold to wear my other item, so luckily, with the thick and heavy material of this dress, I had a great alternative. Paired with tights, booties, and some chunky jewler it was a great winter dress.

Very well-made LBD.
Good quality, heavier material. I found it to be a little bit short so I ended up wearing it with flats.

I absolutely loved this dress! Simple but sophisticated and perfect for a rehearsal dinner in NYC.
Extremely soft and comfortable. The fabric is a little bit heavy which was nice, but keep in mind if wearing in summer.

Beautiful 1st / 2md trimester dress!
I was 12 weeks pregnant wearing this dress and it was perfect. It was loose in the waist to be forgiving but looked great with booties and a statement necklace for a rustic mountain wedding.

Cute dress. Very comfy
The dress was very comfy. I loved the exposed zipper and the pockets! Wasn't sure if it was the bag or the dress, but there was a bit of a strange odor unfortunately. I'd definitely rent this dress again though.

Simple little black dress that fit great and covers all the right areas.
The pros: fits all the right areas and cover up the not so great areas. The cons: it is a bit heavy so it gets hot on a humid and hot day.

Not as stylish on me as other reviewers due to my body shape.
I can wear dresses from a size 2 to a 6 depending upon brand. I ended up wearing the 44 as I wanted a more oversized, stylish look for this political event. However, it didn't look as good on me as other reviewers. I'm short and curvy so it made me look larger than I really am. The fabric was very thick and heavy but I wasn't too hot. It would not be a good dress for an outdoor summer event but could probably pull you through an indoor event of even a cooler outdoor event. I wore this with the OSCAR DE LA RENTA Luxembourg Necklace. The necklace pulled off the look. You really need a statement piece with this dress to pull it off otherwise it kind of looks like you are going to work. I wore this with L.A.M.B. heels that wrapped up around my ankle though it would look nice with flats too.

Great dress for a wedding.
I loved this dress. It was a simple wear. You can really do whatever you like with the accessories to dress it up. It was a little heavy so it worked well for the fall wedding.

Incredibly comfortable and a classic LBD
I wore the size 38/0 and was very pleased with the fit of the dress. This was a complimentary back up dress that I was sent due to the original back up dress I ordered being booked. Have to say I was thankful the original wasn't available because I LOVED this dress. Classy, simple, and cam be dressed up or down. Will definitely rent again.

I rented this dress for my boyfriends graduation, but didn't end up wearing either size.
I like most of my clothing oversized, but this dress was just is too boxy for me to wear. It wasn't flattering so I exchanged it for a BCBG white romper which worked out great.

Love this dress. It ran slightly large so I paired it with a belt and it fit great. The arms were a bit tight but nothing that looked weird or bothered me.

Great LBD
I wore this dress with the Ella Carter Elliot Necklace to a rehearsal dinner. This dress was very comfortable and it has pockets (huge plus!) I am 5'10" and I have very long legs, the 44 fit, but was way too short on me. I opted to wear the 46 which was still a tad short, but was more comfortable than the 44.

Perfect LBD
I wore this dress for an upscale bachelorette party in January in Chicago. It was really hard to find something that was season-appropriate for this party but this dress was perfect. I wore it with black opaque tights, black suede booties, a black and gold studded belt (to cinch the waist), and the Kenneth Jay Lane mod squared necklace. I felt fabulous, and most importantly, it was understated to I didn't upstage the bride!

After a few dress misses, this one is perfect. Dress it up with heels or down with sandles. Well made and flattering. Sleeves were a bit tight but that's something I run into a lot.

Great shift dress, was very comfortable and fun to wear.
This dress is short, which was fine for me, but I'm wider in the hips so there were some limitations. Was comfortable and fun to accessorize.

Super conservative, which was good for my event
The arms were a bit tight and the pockets hit directly at my hips but they could be hidden udon fashion tape or a safety pin. Overall great fit and perfect for bar mitzvah service!

I didn't actually get to wear this dress.
I rented this for my boyfriends awards dinner for work. It was at a trendy new restaurant but had to be rescheduled due to the weather. I tried the dress on and loved it though! Perfect length for a shorter person, The sleeves were a bit tight, but nothing noticeable or uncomfortable.

Great LBD staple!
I wore this to a Hall of Fame induction ceremony and it was perfect. It can be dressed up or down very easily. I paired with with some bold jewelry and it was plenty dressy for the event. The pockets were great too! I thought it was true to size, but not fitted at all, so if anything I would size down.

Great basic LBD and palette for a fabulous statement necklace
Fit great, very comfortable and roomy for sitting and actively moving around the benefit at which I was volunteering. Looked great with a statement necklace to dress it up as it is a very basic cut. Wish I owned to wear casually more often.

I wore this for a rehearsal dinner. Fit ran a little small (wore the larger of the two that I rented), but the material is heavy and felt expensive. Great simple, classy dress. Would definitely rent again.

Perfect LBD for dining and dancing
Wore this for a night out of dinner and dancing. Fit was flattering but not too tight in the midsection so I could enjoy dinner and then very easy and comfortable for dancing. Some said the sleeves were tight but they fit me just fine. Also it has pockets!

Best dress ever! If I could buy it and keep it, I would!
This dress is AMAZING. I got so many compliments. I also rented a gold necklace and wore them together and it was fabulous. I am 5'3 so while the dress is quite short, it wasn't too short by any means. I also ended up wearing my back up size (sized up). Rented 40 and 42 and wore the 42 because it was more comfortable and had the nice shift look I was looking for. The dress is very sophisticated and elegant and the fabric is extremely comfortable. I am definitely going to be renting this again. This is probably my favorite dress that I have ever rented from RTR.

Perfect for a company charity event
This dress is extremely comfortable and flattering, but will not show you off. It was perfect for a classy work event, but I wouldn't necessarily rent this for a party or wedding. I'm 5'6" and the length was just longer than mid-thigh. Fit great in arm area; I didn't think it was too tight at all, and I don't consider myself to have skinny arms. I really liked the thicker fabric -- not too heavy, but weighty enough to make it feel formal. Would rent again.

Very cute dress. Easy to dress it up!
I normally wear a 4 or 6 in dresses and I had to wear the 44. I am a crossfitter, so the arms were too tight in the 42, but everywhere else fit well. The arms were still quite tight in the 44, but if I went any larger, the rest of the dress would have been too big. All in all, probably a great fitting dress for women with normal size arms.

Great LBD!
I rented this dress as a backup to a more risque dress I rented for the same event. I ended up wearing this LBD since the other dress was ridiculously short. I loved this dress! It was easy to wear and I paired it with big statement necklace.

perfect LBD
I would love to own this dress. The fabric was heavier, and I was glad to not have to suffer through an evening of spanx. It was a bit warm for part of the night, but who expects it to be 80 degrees in September in seattle?! I loved having pockets and the conservative cut of the dress. The sleeves were a bit snug, but I didn't find them bothersome.
