I wore this to a wedding. I'm 5'7" and 130lbs, usually wear a 4. The 4 was huge on me...the 2 wasn't available so I didn't have a back-up. Pretty dress, but I felt kind of frumpy since its not very fitted and was big on me.

The dress arrived an absolute mess. The lining was noticeably damaged in several different places (ripped on the edges, so fabric was frayed) & one of the loops that the belt goes through was cut off. Worst part: they did not send the belt! It's called the Pretty BELT-ed Ruffle Dress for crying out loud. BELT is in the name of the dress, you'd think they would've remembered to send it. I called RTR, and FINALLY got them to overnight me the belt. I had not had a problem before ordering from RTR in the past, and I was definitely expecting the RTR staff to be understanding & helpful, since the dress was not only damaged, a component was missing entirely! They made me feel like I was inconveniencing them by calling to ask where the belt was and why the dress was in such poor shape. Not to mention, you'll sit on hold for about 30 minutes and have to listen to their FAQ's on repeat over and over. Once you get an actual person on the phone, they will be very rude. I spoke with someone named Stephanie and then another girl whose name I cannot recall -- both were unhelpful and snarky and made me feel bad that I was calling with a problem. The belt was overnighted to me, so I appreciated that, but it was wadded up messily in an envelope. I would certainly encourage you to think twice before ordering this dress or ANY dress from RTR at all. SO disappointed with this one.

Birthday Night

The size 0 was slightly big, but totally wearable. This dress is really cute and easy to wear. I got a lot of compliments and my boyfriend loved the ruffled asymmetric shoulder. I would recommend this dress for an easy dressy date. I loved the black slightly shinny soft fabric.

Flirty & Feminine!

Wore this to a wedding at the Mandarin Oriental hotel in NYC - it was a fun twist on your typical LBD - I felt it looked best from the front & back, the frill running vertically down the dress added bulk from the side. The fit was comfortable but not really body-hugging, it felt a little loose but it may have just been the style. I didn't order a second size so I'm not sure if the 2 would have fit better - Generally I run between the two.

Absolutely loved this dress. True to Milly, it's cut on the larger end, so had to go with the smaller of two sizes. Was super comfortable and the frills brought some fun to the otherwise fairly simple, LBD. Highly recommended :)

This dress is perfect. I couldn't have received more compliments. I felt gorgeous in it! I ordered both the 0 and the 2 and wore the 0 -- it runs a little small.

This dress is really cute! I wore it to an evening wedding and was very comfortable. It's a great mix between casual comfort and dressed up. It definitely runs a little small. I usually wear a 2 or 4 and the 4 was almost too small. My only complaint is the material does not age well. When I received the dress it looked slightly worn. But this was barely noticable at night.

I wore this dress this weekend to a wedding rehearsal dinner. It's a super cute dress. I would get one size larger because the slip is slightly snug around the hip area and I expected the bottom portion to be a little more flowy. I normally wear a zero but I got the size 2 as a backup and ended up wearing the size 2. Overall it's a great dress and love the style. Great and simple and perfect for any event casual or dressy. Love the one shoulder/ruffle detail. Would be so pretty if it came in another color. Love!

After reading all of the reviews about the dress running small I thought would be safe ordering a size 6, when I am a size 4. But sadly to say the size 6 was too lose on the top(double side tape could have fixed that) & a bit tight one the bottom because underneath the dress slip is just straight with no give on it.(but could have worn if I had not other options) But the dress is very cute & would have loved to wear it. If your a little curve on the bottom beware. I ordered this a back up dress & my first choice did fit so I wasn't that disappointed. I never received my fashion tape so if my first choice did not fit I would have been out of luck.

This dress was gorgeous but was really tight around the hips. I tried wearing some shaping undergarment but it was still tight. Beautiful dress but if you have wide hips (probably 39"-42") you shouldn't rent this.

Too tight; Arrived frayed

This dress runs extremely small and is very clingy on the bottom. I usually wear a Milly size 6 and couldn't even fit into the 8. It also arrived somewhat frayed.

Beautiful and classic dress.

The dress was beautiful and classy. It definitely ran small (I normally wear a 4 and wore a 6 in this dress). The dress was very simple but classic. The ruffles are difficult to see when wearing the dress, it looks more like a plain black silk one-shoulder when wearing. I wore it to a semiformal, and I would definitely recommend it for that type of event.

Lots of compliments!

It's such a simple dress but I got so many compliments because it fits so well. I ordered a 0 and a 2 and I had to wear the 2. The 0 was just too tight around the butt. Typically I wear a 0. There is an adorable ruffle at the shoulder and the belt shows of your waist. Such a flattering dress! Perfect for a wedding or night out.

Cute LBD!

This was the first dress I rented from RTR! I wore this dress to my friends rehearsal dinner. For most styles I usually wear a size 4. This dress ran a bit small through the thighs and the size 4 was a bit fitted. Thank goodness for SPANX! I would for sure recommend sizing up for your backup. I received many compliments and raved all night about RTR!

Subtle fun, with sophisticate

The date was my own 30th birthday dinner with my now husband. What a evening! Good thing the table cloth was long because this dress was not very generous in terms of length. Adorable, of course, but appropriate length, maybe not. :) Flirty without being showy.

Great LBD

This is a great little black dress that you can dress up with fun jewelry. It was a little tight in the rear, but I'm curvy there so that's usually expected for me. Since I had to go up a size for the bottom to fit, the top was a little loose. That was my only complaint. Great dress thought.

I wish I had gotten a size up and they had an 8 available but they only had a 6 and a 4.

Not for anyone with a butt. If you're a stick, then it's a great dress.

both sizes that were sent to me came without the belt. Their return form is not easy to find in their site.

Unfortunately the 6 did not fit and it was not available in an 8.

It is a beautiful dress, but could not wear it. I gave it 5 stars because the entire process is easy. It was delivered to a hotel I was staying at while visiting Chicago on the day it was promised. I still plan on using RTR for a Christmas Eve/Anniversary dinner.

Pears, beware! If you are just a slight pear (like I am) this dress can work for you, but more "extreme" pears should stay away. I ordered both size 6 and size 8 and I wore the size 8. Like others, I found the hips to be very close fitting - I have 39" hips and the size 8 looked best, the 6 fit but had serious swayback wrinkles (if you sew and know about fitting, you'll know what I'm talking about). To get the good fit in the hips of the size 8, that meant the bodice was slightly big (my bust is probably 34C, not sure since I'm breastfeeding and size changes hourly!), but here's you can get it to fit great: wear a bandeau/strapless bra, use fashion tape to adhere the right side (sleeveless side) at the underarm to the bandeau bra. Then you can pull the left side/shoulder away (toward the arm) to get the top to fit well. Enough about the fit! This is a cute little dress, I wanted something inexpensive and pretty for a date night and this fit the bill. It had a bit of static cling around the legs, so you may need to be prepared for that with some dryer sheets.

The dress is cute, but the sizing was pretty off! I ordered the 4 and 6 and the 4 was almost too snug. I tried the 6 on and it fell off my body (seriously - the top wouldn't stay on). I wore the 4 without the sash and the slip underneath kept riding up. I got compliments on it but it was a little snug for MY liking.

I am typically a 4 or a small in most clothes but am well endowed in the shest. I was rather surprised to find that the 4 was very generous in the bust,to the point that I had to pin it closed as I would have had some side/cleavage slippage. Other than that, the length was great, it was very flattering/sexy without being inappropriate. I wore it to a Saturday night wedding and got several compliments.

This is a very beautiful dress with the belt and the shoulder detail. I would not recommend this to women with an hourglass shape as I had to wear the larger of the two sizes which was really baggy in the waist for me. The extra fabric in the waist area did bother me although I did receive many compliments and it is a very gorgeous dress.
