Felt like great quality
I'm 5'6 and about 130 lbs and I thought this dress fit really well. Wore for my boyfriends company Christmas party with a sparkly necklace and it was both comfortable and flattering. It is thick so it was good for winter.

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!

Great little black dress
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.

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.

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.

Very comfortable
I normally wear a 4 and figured a 2 would fit too since the dress is loose. RTR didn't have the 2 at last minute so they told me to choose 5 other choices. They didn't have any of them which was a little annoying and they sent me a hideous dress they thought I would like. THANKFULLY the 4 fit perfectly. I wore it with the booties in my pic to dress it down along with a green statement necklace.

Classy and comfortable
Wore this just to go out on a lunch date with hubby, is comfortable, I found pockets, I didn't know it had them, I think one of the fun parts of this dress would be to accessorize it, perfect length, short but not mini

Ended up not being able to wear this dress as I missed the event altogether-but tried it on because I love the style. I will definitely be renting this for a future event, it is so comfortable and durable.

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.

Great Versatile Dress!
I wore this dress for work and it is a great LBD-nice tailoring, details, and fabric. It is true to size and a great option for petites as well as it is fitted and on the shorter side. It could easily be dressed up for work as well!

Comfortable dress, with pockets!
I rented this dress because I knew I would be three months pregnant at this wedding and wasn't sure if we would have announced the pregnancy yet. I wanted something that would hide my little bump if needed. Luckily, we decided to tell everyone that we knew would be at the wedding the week before because this dress did not hide my bump very well! It definitely runs small. I'm very petite and even 3 months pregnant, I weigh 112. I tried on the 38 and if I lifted my arms above my head the dress came up past my butt. Haha the 40 fit much better. Loved that this dress has pockets. It's definitely a more fitted shift dress. The neckline is pretty high, but it didn't bother me. I wore it with a statement necklace and lace up heels. I felt very pretty and very comfortable. I'm bummed I didn't get a full body picture!

Great black dress!
I absolutely loved this dress! A must wear in the fall. Material is thick, but feels really nice. The dress falls a bit longer then what the model is showing. You can dress this up or down. Received lots of compliments!

Versatile dress
The dress runs a bit small in the hips. Because the dress has pockets, they bunched around the hips in the smaller size. Great versatile piece to dress up or down!

Comfy little black dress
I liked this dress. Thicker fabric which was good choice for winter. Length was good. May have looked a bit short without black tights? I'm almost 5'10". Pockets fell in kind of a weird area and made me look a little "hippy". It's not the most flattering dress but super comfy and you can dress it up, which I did!

Did not wear - made me look pregnant
This was not a flattering dress for me at all. The size 38 fit but the way the pockets pucker made it look like I had a little pregnant belly from the side. Also, it's SUPER short. When I raised my arms my butt checks were almost exposed and I'm barely 5'4". I did not end up wearing this dress.

Short for long torso
Dress was too short for my long torso. Boxy cut - the pockets poofed out a bit near my love handles BUT this probably wouldn't be an issue for ppl with Normal and short torsos. High quality fabric.

Great dress! Very comfortable! I was able to dance and did not have to worry. I would wear it again.
Go down a size when ordering. Only con is that the zipper on the back pulled at my hair all night.

This is a great dress!
I didn't actually get to wear the dress because of a severe ice storm in Dallas but it is a great dress for a work dinner or date. I felt very classy in it and the fabric is very luxurious and makes you feel like a million bucks!!

Simple, Classy and Elegant!
I wore this dress to a corporate holiday party. I received many compliments on how classy the dress was. I think the dress runs a little bit on the bigger side. I ordered a size down as my backup and was able to fit into it perfectly. The dress is simple so it definitely needs to be accessorized. I would definitely wear it again!

Simple, comfortable dress that can be accessorized a number of ways. .
I liked the dress for it's comfort and simplicity but it wasn't what i expected. I liked the heavy material. I had to tape the pockets shut b/c the jutted out making my hips look wide. The back zipper is a neat detail.

Really awesome dress. I loved the geometric shape!
This dress was a great basic style, however it was much longer than expected. If this dress was a couple of inches shorter I would have loved it! The fit runs larger as it is a shift, but would be great for walking around the town or grabbing dinner with friends! I would definitely pair this look with some standout jewelry as it is a very simple style.

I should have listened to the reviews...
I rented this dress to wear to my engagement party in a size 42 and 44 (I am almost always a size 4). I should have listened to the reviews because I ended up not wearing either. The thicker fabric of the dress was perfect (in theory!) for February but the cut of the dress wasn't flattering in ANYWAY. I tried to do what one reviewer mentioned and use double sided tape to close the pockets. However, the pockets are made with the same thick dress material (not a less bulky, silky material like usually) and the tape did nothing to fix the shape of the dress. Not even leopard shoes, a huge sparkly necklace, and my newly engaged grin, could disguise the horrible fit....

Rented for a Surprise Birthday Party. Did not wear :(
I rented this dress for a birthday and unfortunately was unable to wear it. The sleeves for the small size were unbearably tight, but if I wore the larger size it had a very unflattering pooch in the middle. In both sizes the pocket poked putt adding to the bulky appearance of the dress. The dress is extremely heavy which was not ideal for warmer weather. The dress also has an exposed zipper in the back which I did read about in other posts, I found the zipper to be very unflattering. I've added a picture which honestly does not demonstrate any of this negative feedback, all the photos look great because the dress is black and hides it's awkward shape. I would not rent this dress again.

I did not wear this dress.
Ran a little wide. I did not end up wearing because the fabric is very heavy and a little more formal than expected. I was attending a bachelorette party dinner but it was outdoors and this was far too warm.

It was classy and conservative, but had enough personality to make a statement. Plus, pockets!!
I wore a size smaller than I normally do because the larger size was just too big in a few areas such as the back and chest. The smaller dress felt snug at times around my arms, but the material had a slight stretchiness to it that saved the sleeves from feeling too tight. It never once bunched up in the midsection while I was seated and I LOVE the pockets! I wore the dress with bright orange tights (Biggby Coffee colors, the company I work for) as well. I got a bunch of compliments!

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.

way too big
I ordered this as a back up dress & thank goodness my original order fit! This was like wearing a pillow case but heavy, hot, material and wayyyy too big. It was saggy and came to a weird length on me - I'm 5' 3" and it made me look even shorter!
