Cute birthday date dress
Wore this for a birthday dinner date - perfect length and perfect for the LA December weather. The sleeves were a little tight but not enough to bother me.

I love this dress. The quality is excellent. The fit is amazing. It is short which makes it a bit sexy. I felt great in this dress. I am 147 lb. and 5'8"

Perfect LBD for playing Hide-the-Bump!
Wore it to a wedding with black tights and statement jewelry. I was about four months pregnant and the square shape (plus some compression hose) was super flattering without looking at all frumpy! I would absolutely rent again! Classic, stylish, perfect for dancing (and eating!).

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!

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!

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!

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!

Classic LBD
So I received this dress as a back up style because the one I rented was no longer available. That being said, I didn't love this dress solely because I really wanted the one I initially rented. However, this is a great black shift dress that you can wear to and with almost anything! It has pockets, is comfy, easy to move in and easily dressed up or down. I wore it to a wedding with a gold statement necklace and nude pumps. It was a little snug in the shoulder so I sized up because I knew I would be dancing a lot in it. Overall, it was a great black dress.

Perfect work dress - bump friendly
I wore this for an evening, outdoor work event. It has pockets and I received a lot of compliments. It is bump friendly (probably not for too much longer) and would work the first 3-4 months of pregnancy.

Great Night. Loved the dress!
The fit was perfect. The sleeves were a bit tight but still fit great. The length was fine with my hands to my side but had to be careful when I was dancing so my bum wouldn't show. Had lots of compliments! I would wear again.

This LBD can be worn to work or dressed up for a night out!
I wore this dress as one of my outfits for our engagement photo shoot. It is what it is, a little black dress. I also rented the necklace I am pictured with. The fit is true to size and I would definitely order this again! If you are looking for something simple and cute, this is your dress. However, I do think its important to know that the fabric is thick so not the best idea to wear to an outdoor event in the middle of summer.

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

Perfect LBD
This dress just fits perfectly. It's a little on the short side (which I like). I wore it to a casual bridal shower. It can be dressed up or down. I started the day in black pumps and ended in little black sneakers and I loved both looks. I paired with a leather jacket to give it a little bit of any edge.

I love shift dresses. It hides the midsection well. It's comfortable and makes you look pulled together.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
