Flattering style
Great fit and style for a winter wedding! Wore it with the earrings modeled in the picture on RTR and tights. Very comfortable and a classic LBD. Only downside was the hem was messed up due to over dry cleaning. It ironed flat so I was able to wear it. Overall I liked it but was just disappointed for the condition.

Great fit. Awesome for dancing.
The hemline was a little wonky but it was a dark event so it wasn't too noticeable. I wear a 34G bra and this still fit great up top.

This dress is comfy and super classy at the same time.
The material was comfy and design was excellent. However, it runs large, so it was too big on me. I should have ordered a size down.

Weird hem, but great silhouette.
Usually wear an 8, but it was way too big in the hips so I was happy I ordered down a size for the backup. Overall the dress looked great and was perfect for the wedding as a classic LBD option. Danced all night long in it - arms usually are tight on me, but it was just fine! The only problem was the 6 had a weird mesh that looked like it was hand sewn along the inside of the bottom of the dress... The stitching was all uneven and definitely didn't seem original to the dress, especially because the size 8 didn't have it.

Different and comfortable.
Ended up not wearing because I had other RTR options, but it fit very comfortably. Could easily dress up with jewelry.

Everything I needed packed in a garment bag!
I liked this dress, thought the inside lining created sort of a smashy/uniboob effect. Maybe a 10 would have prevented that? Very pretty dress. Loved the neckline. Got a lot of compliments. Zipper was uncomfortable against my spine when seated. Will use RTR again but probably wouldn't rent this dress again

Great silhouette!
Really the perfect LBD! I will definitely be renting it again. The neckline gave it the perfect amount of edginess and the cut/style/fit&flare was perfect. Nice heavy material. The only thing was the hem was a bit awkward however with it being black you could hardly notice. Loved it and got tons of compliments!

Great dress!
I really liked this dress and would recommend it. It was comfortable and very cute. Unfortunately, I wore my normal size because the size down wasn't available. I think the lower size might have fit a little better. Great dress still, though!

Kentucky Derby dinner party and I felt like a killer in this dress!!! Love LOVE LOVE it!
I'm between a 2 and 4...and the 2 fit like a glove! I used a wide waist belt with it but it would have looked great without. I will rent this again! Thanks RTR!

Sexy but classy
This dress was an absolute dream. You can never go wrong with a little black dress! I received so many compliments on the dress, everyone was in love. I am only 5'1 and the dress hit a little above my knees, so it was a really good length. I have no complaints about the dress! :)

Classic
I chose this dress for my engagement photos. I wanted something simple and classic. Believe the reviewers when they say IT RUNS LARGE. I am normally a 8-10 so I ordered an 8 and had to get a 6 over nighted! The dress wasn't as flattering as I had hoped, but it got the job done.

Perfect neckline
The dress was a little tight, but also has a lot of stretch in the fabric. Also good for a small baby bump! The neckline is cute while being conservative so it's good if you're around families or kids

Great shape
I loved the fit of this dress. It hugged me in all of the right places. I wore it to meet my boyfriend's family at an NYE party, so I needed something that was a little less revealing and flashy. I felt sexy and sophisticated.

Fun and comfy dress!!
Worn to a rehearsal dinner… very comfortable and elegant party dress! Everyone LOVED it! The mid section was a tad big and I had to pin it on the sides in order to show the shape of my body. The material is thick which was great for a cold December rehearsal dinner. So fun and made me feel very confident, which is all anyone wants! ;)

I was going to wear this to a summer wedding - it was way too hot though and ended up not wearing it
This dress was heavy and runs big. I'm usually a 10 and the 8 was too big. The dress itself is gorgeous and the cut falls perfectly so you can wear a normal bra. However, the material was so thick that I would only recommend for a winter event.

Unfortunate accident
Unfortunately, I was unable to wear this dress as it had not been cleaned before it was sent out. I am certain this is a fluke accident and customer service was absolutely wonderful about it! The dress is very pretty though and it's a nice material. I wish I had been able to wear it. Oh well, maybe another time!

I wore this for Valentine's Day dinner out and it was a hit! The material was very thick and the dress was made well. The neckline is sexy but classy. I am normally a 4 and the 2 fit perfect.

Loved, loved, loved this dress!!! Even though it was a simple dress, its my favorite rental so far.
I rented this for a simple dinner on my birthday and couldn't be more satisfied. Upon taking it out of the box, I wasn't so sure I was going to like it because the bottom of the dress has some sort of mesh hemming to make the skirt fan out in true skater dress fashion and whomever ironed it, pressed the imprint of the hemming into the dress. Luckily, it didn't show when I put the dress on and it just hung and flowed beautifully. I normally wear a 6 but the 4 fit like a glove. I have no hips so maybe that's a contributing factor. Although a seemingly simple style, it's cute and girly and at 5'8, the dress was a flirty yet classy mid-thigh length on me. Other reviews stated the sleeves were too long but I found them to be shorter than I'd like. One cute detail, though, were the zippers at the wrists. Another was the asymmetrical neckline which will be overpowered with any kind of bib or statement necklace so choose accessories wisely. (I didn't wear the jewelry in the picture.) The fabric is a nice weight with a some stretch to it. I don't have the flattest stomach on the planet but you couldn't notice a bit of bulge so if your abs aren't washboard, this is a great choice. The dress comes with inside snaps that some reviewers used to secure bra straps. I think they are there to hold down the hanger straps because they pop out if they aren't secured down. I wore a regular bra and the straps didn't show at all. My night was filled with dinner and dancing and this dress is perfect for both.

Clever, Clever Dress
The neckline really sets this dress apart. It is so cleverly made with zippered sleeves and the shape of the skirt. I originally ordered the larger size as Nanette Lepore usually runs small, but this dress was much larger. Rtr was wonderful when I called and sent me the smaller size immediately! It was perfect!

Unfortunately wasn't the best fit of a dress... I wish I had gotten a different one :(
The dress was a little long making it look a bit ill-fitting and a lot more casual. The seam at the bottom was wavy and not well made and unfortunately cheapened the dress a bit. I wanted this to work so badly but unfortunately didn't feel very great in it. Perhaps a cute black belt or something would have improved the fit/look because the torso area isn't fitting so it doesn't give you a sleek look.

Love this dress- wore it for valentines day, and it was so incredibly flattering! I could have definitely gone down one more size, but it was nice and flowy, didn't hug the middle at all and the neckline was so different and fun

The dress was perfect.
The dress is so comfortable. It's beautiful and the neckline is amazing. I ordered a size 10 & 12. I'm regularly a 12 but the 10 fit me better so I guess I'd say it ran big. It's a great dress, I loved it & so did everyone else.

Little snug up top...but TONS of compliments
I got a 10 with a backup of a 12...and I ended up wearing the 12 because it fit the girls up top better. The slight scoop added a sexy touch to it. The length was perfect, hit just above my knees. I got so many compliments on these dress. I would definitely recommend it and rent again!

Felt like a million bucks
I had to pin up the hem about 3 inches! This dress is much longer than it looks on the model!! There is also a piece of mesh at the hem of the skirt that makes it flow like in the picture that I was not expecting but all I did was fold that under and use fashion tape to hold it up and it worked for me! Over all the dress was very flattering and I loved it!!

So elegant but also really comfortable!
I wore this dress to a Formal (not black tie) Benefit and I absolutely LOVED it. The fit was perfect and made me feel very formal yet not overdone. The fabric has an almost neoprene vibe which proved it very comfortable to wear while still looking polished, and doesn't wrinkle so feel free to cut a rug. I highly recommend it!

Comfortable and stylish at office Christmas party
The fabric and cut of this dress is what makes it feel luxurious. I wore regular lace tights and found spanx unnecessary. Also regular bra was fine. I would definitely rent this again. Also of note I have discovered that sometimes these sleeves may feel snug when you first put on the dress. But the fabric stretches to a comfortable fit.

Fabulously classy dress for a fabulously classy affair. So comfortable, yet so chic!
I rented this dress for our company holiday party at our owner's house. I was so anxious to find the right dress... I wanted to find the perfect balance between fun/flirty and professional/classy (which is a lot harder than it looks!!) This was actually my backup style that I ordered for the additional, but discounted cost. I did not anticipate to like it as much as I did because of how seemingly plain it was. However, it was simply beautiful! And really complimented my curves and my neckline. It was fun to pick flashy accessories to dress it up with, too! The neckline is one-of-a-kind, and the full skirt is so incredibly flattering. It is on the shorter side, but because of the fullness, it looked totally appropriate. PLUS, I was soo comfortable in the thick, soft material of the dress on a cold night in December. Don't discount this simple dress!! It is a perfect choice for occasions like these! :)

Perfect for a formal, classy affair
I wore this dress to my sorority's preference night during recruitment. The cut is clingy, but not tight, to the waist, and the flares out in a fuller skirt. The cut is very flattering and the fit was true to size. If you have a bigger bust, go up a size though. The neckline is very interesting and adds a great dimension to the dress. This dress would be perfect for a formal affair when you want to look classy and not too revealing. This dress makes a great first impression and everyone was asking me where it was from!

This dress was absolutely amazing! It was so comfortable, & it looked so elegant for a formal event.
I put my first size as a 4, and my second choice was a 6. I'm 5'8'' and I play college soccer so I'm pretty broad along the shoulders. I ended up wearing the 6 because it laid better across the top, but either one would have worked! The length was perfect, and it hit right below mid thigh, so I didn't have to pin it up at all. I paired it with black heels and emerald green/gold jewelry and it looked awesome. I got so many compliments & the process was so convenient. It was a very thick fabric, so great for the super cold winter weather we had that night! I will definitely rent again!
