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!

Beautiful well cut dress
I wore this for a theatre gala and it was perfect for the cocktail dress attire- longer on me than the model of course which was perfect. Easy wear well made and comfortable. Thanks!!

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! :)

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! ;)

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!

Incredibly flattering and comfortable
The fit was great. The flare of the skirt was fun and flattering. The neckline was flattering. The sleeves were flattering. I guess... everything was flattering. I wanted to keep it.

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!

Comfortably dance the night away!
I was worried it would be too short but it was the perfect length. I received compliments all night long! Super comfy but a little loose in the waist. Nothing that couldn't be fixed with a cute belt.

Overall the dress was a good choice
It fit pretty true to size and it was made of a really warm material- perfect for winter. However, the dress was a bit too long and I couldn't even fashion tape it up because of this weird netting at the bottom of it that made it flare out. The neckline was awesome though and I got a lot of compliments

Classic LBD
Pros: the dress is SO comfortable, it's classic and classy. Cons: the dress isn't in the best shape. It's not bad, but it's clearly been on here a while. A seam was out and there was a small hole in the armpit.

So comfortable!
I rented this dress for a semi formal event. It was in February so the long sleeves and thickness of the material made this dress even more perfect. I rented a size 4 and 6. The size 4 fit perfectly, not too tight, not too loose. The 6 was way too big. I usually run in between a 4 and a 6, depends on the style of the dress. The material is stretchy and comfortable. The only negative i have is that the neckline kept folding over and i had to fix it multiple times, may have been to small in the bust. Overall, great dress, I highly recommend it.

This was a great dress for a wedding on the foggy coast of northern california!
The fit was great, I'm a bit smaller on top, and since the skirt flares out, i was able to go with a size 4. The material is nice and thick, and the dress is super flattering. My only problem was that the tiny straps used for the hanger kept peeking out from the shoulders... If I owned the dress I would have just cut them off, but instead i just had to tuck them back in every once in a while. Other than that, loved it!

Really comfortable dress for a fall wedding
Wore this to a wedding where it ended up being quite cold, but this dress was perfect. Added fun shoes and earrings. Everyone commented on the cool cut-out neckline. I was 3 months pregnant and not ready to tell everyone, but you couldn't tell at all in this dress. Fitted but with just enough room and flair from the hips and waistline, plus the fabric is thick and smoothing.

Perfect Little Black Dress
I wore if for my Birthday dinner in Niagara Falls. It was thick so it kept me warm! It was the perfect length! Could have worn it without tights if it wasn't so cold out. They didn't have the 4 for me to rent, it was damaged. I think the 4 would have fit better but the 6 worked for the night!

Great neckline & shape!
The neckline made the dress awesome, very flattering. The shape was flattering too. I would definitely suggest a belt if you're a shorty like me though because the dress can kind of swallow you without it. It was pretty long but I wanted a longer style since it was a work party anyway!

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.

I wore this dress for a birthday dinner and it was beautiful!
Because of the material it is made out of, it was a little tight on my chest but not enough that would make me go up a size. The dress is very classy. With it's unique neckline I needed little accessories. Loved the long sleeves, great for winter months.

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.

I wore this to a winter formal dance. I got compliments all night! Everyone loved it.
This dress is perfect! The material is very comfortable and the bottom isn't too poofy. The only thing Ii was worried about was the hem, because there is a little piece of fabric underneath that can show at the bottom, but it is nothing a little fashion tape can't fix (and there was a sample of fashion tape in the box!). I am usually a 6/8, and ended up ordering both and wearing the 6. The sleeve length is perfect for someone tall, and the length of the dress is perfect.

pretty dress, was too big
I rented this for a February wedding so I wanted something with sleeves. The size 8, which was my main size, was unable to ship at the last minute. They sent me a back-up and the size 10 in this dress. I really liked the dress but the 10 was just a tad big. The back-up fit amazingly so I went with that one. I would have had a tough decision if the 8 had sent because the dress was very nice. It was warm and I loved the neckline.

Compliments all night! I wore it to a Casino Royale company party in February.
This dress is comfortable and has a bit of stretch to the material. It's a bit snug in the chest so if you may want to size up but for me (B cup) the 10 worked fine. The bottom of the dress has a plastic mesh that helps with the shape however it was a bit difficult to get out some of the puckered bits and the lining would show longer at times. If I'd taken time to iron the bottom it would have been a non-issue. I wish this dress was mine!

Very flattering neckline, easy to wear all night long!
The dress material was a little bit thicker than I expected, and the dress was very modest which was what I was looking for for my event. It was extremely comfortable though, and you can wear a regular bra with it (the neckline wasn't a challenge with normal bra straps). Perfect to wear with big statement earrings!

Great dress! I was super comfortable but still felt sexy.
Fits true to size and looks great on - not too short for tall girls, either. Hard to wear with a bra obviously, but can still look great with strapless. Wish it was a little more fitted through the chest and waist, but that's just a preference. Still looked and felt great! Note - it's definitely a thicker fabric than I realized, so more of a fall/winter dress!

The dress was gorgeous, however I didn't even end up wearing it.
The dress was far too long on my small frame and it was extremely unflattering. The material is heavy and wasn't good for spring even though my event took place at night. I was so sad, because the dress had such rave reviews! But it was just awful on me, I felt like I was being swallowed by the dress. Between the long sleeves and the too long hemline I was just disappointed overall.
