Very slimming showstopper dress

Absolutely loved this dress. The material is thick and stretchy so really sucks you in. I couldn't wear a strapless bra because the front dips pretty low so I recommend getting double sided tape to hold your t's in. I got so many compliments on it, would totally wear again. It's pretty short when you bend over so wear full coverage panties!

Sexy and very chic

Gorgeous dress. Definitely high design. I wore this to dinner with my in-laws and felt completely comfortable. Can be worn with a push up bra for a little extra vavavoom and perfect for date night. The sleeves gave a very chic flare to a ultimate lbd.

It's short!

This is a great designer for short girls and I love it, but I am 5ft tall. Be careful this dress was short on me. Maybe sticky boobs would work but low cut and needs a strapless bra. Straps were stretched out. Wasn't my favorite rental, but it's your short this is a different LBD option!

Awesome dress!

I ordered a 6 & 8 and went with the size 6. I knew it was going to be low cut, I'm a 34 D so I used athletic tape to pull by breasts apart and help hold them. I never felt like this dress was too short at all. Only con was the straps, they are thin and loose so they kept slipping off my shoulders. Other then that... everyone loved the dress!! I was so happy with it.

The dress was comfortable to wear. It is short in the back if you have any kind of curvy. Fit well around waist and hips. Larger up top.

Sexy yet classy dress

This dress fit great overall so if you're considering ordering, you should. If you are larger on top, size up for backup. If you are smaller on top you may consider sizing down. I chose not to wear a strapless bra because it made me sit up a bit too high and also showed the bra a bit. However it was warm on a November night, yet revealing and sexy and still allowed movement. Fun rental for friends engagement party!

I love the dress material. It reallt feels nice and fits well. I love the sleeves and how the dress is cut to show a bit of the back. The length is flirty but still elegant

Super sexy dress but hard to keep on

Wore it for a night out and recieved many compliments. My husband loved it although it was was more revealing than I'm comfortable with. Like many reviewers have said, the straps do not stay up which causes the dress to be super revealing and annoying because I was pulling it up all night. I found the dress to be much larger on top then the bottom. The fabric is thick and scuba-like, which I liked and found comfortable. It would be a perfect dress if the sizing was more accurate.

Too tight. Had to return.

This dress would be perfect for someone who doesn't have many curves. Had wonderful potential. Fabric is super nice and thick but not much give. I'm typically a zero (waist) but muscly and couldn't get the two to fit.

Was beautiful but uncomfortable

The dress was beautiful but the straps are not adjustable so all nigh I was pulling the straps back on my shoulders. The ruffle hem on the bottom of the dress cut into my leg when I was sitting. Overall I'll prob would not rent again

LBD but shy of boring. So flirty. Great material.

I got the 2&4. The two was a bit snug but after wearing it around the house I got it feeling comfy so the fabric does give a bit, wish it was lined just to have a super clean set of lines. The four ( which I usually am, I swam in the top and it was way longer on me) I really do recommend this dress bc it is quite fun to wear and rock with boots or heels.

Cute but small

I think this dress was super cute but the boob area was to too tight for me to wear . I am a size 38DD and ordered a size 12. It squished my chest area and gave me that flat chest look .

Weird fit!

Little straps don't stay up. Dips very, very low. Didn't look right on me, needed to be fitted better in chest. Thick, heavy material. Also super short, hit me right below my butt. I sent the dress back, couldn't wear it!

Someone called me a "sexy sorceress"

I looooved this dress! My favorite part was the sleeves. I will say that the sizing was a little weird, with the bottom running small and the top part running large. I am normally a 2, and the bottom half of the 4 was quite snug while the top half felt loose. This might be a great dress for more apple-shaped women. However, it was still beautiful and flattering on my pear-shaped self!

Brutal

I didn't wear this for two reasons: 1) The material was so worn and horrendous I can't believe they still have this in rotation. 2) The hem from the bodycon to the ruffle bottom is LITERALLY on the center of your butt so if you have any type of athletic build or booty it seriously feels like you're walking around naked because it's also short. Needless to say, worst rental I've had. Very disappointed in the quality of a "used to be over $500" dress.

Loved the non traditional sleeves

The dress was wonderful and something different than I usually wear. Gave it 4/5 stars only because the straps kept on falling down. I have a small chest and a larger bottom. Other than that it felt great and I got compliments all night

Sooo unique

Got this dress last minute for Senior homecoming and got compliments all night. Very flattering, very unique and very comfortable. The fabric reminds me a bit like felt- it was a lot stiffer and more thick than I expected so it was pretty hot on the dance floor. Not sure if I missed that in the reviews because it was so last minute or it wasn't mentioned. The spaghetti straps fell down quite a bit but the dress stays up by itself. You don't have complete range of motion in arms, think like an 130 degree angle. Also- I have a pretty small chest, 32 A/B- but this dress really made me look good everywhere which is pretty difficult to find. I am VERY happy with this dress :)

An entire roll of fashion tape couldn't make this decent

I wanted to wear this for my boyfriend's birthday dinner, but it was a complete failure. There is no amount of fashion tape that could get this dress to cover my bra. So I tried without the bra. But if I'm not wearing a bra, I definitely need to rely on the straps to stay up. The straps were so long, they were nowhere near useful. I tried tying knots in them to shorten them, but the material wouldn't hold the knot. There was just no way. Mind you- I'm an A cup and this dress couldn't decently cover my A cups in a bra. I also strongly feel that all dresses on RTR that have thin straps like these should have the straps be adjustable. And if a designer makes a dress with non-adjustable straps, RTR should just alter them to be adjustable. These dresses are intended to fit every kind of woman- adjustable straps are a must.

Sassy sleeves and thick material make this a super fun LBD!

Loved this dress for my company holiday party! Some said the sleeves fell down but mine stayed up just fine (and I have a very small chest so not too much holding it up). The material was thick and hugged my curves but not too tight so I could dance all night! Long enough to wear high heels and feel covered. The sleeves were a little long on me but so fun I kept swinging them around!

Too baggy in shoulders and sleeves and revealing

I did not end up wearing this dress. I was a little bummed because it's SO CUTE but the top straps kept falling, the sleeves were too long and for a momma who has breastfed it was super flattering to the girls haha! It was SAY more low cut than I expected and was super short in the skirt too.

NYE Hit!!

It fits like a glove. I typically dress more conservatively but I tried a new look for NYE and loved it! I am very petite and flat chested and worried it would be too revealing, but it accentuated all the right spots! Would absolutely rent this again

Shorter than anticipated, best for those with shorter torso or maybe under 5'6.

Overall the dress has a very cute cut, but the length was much shorter than what would work for me. Probably best for someone who is petite or has a shorter torso. Fabric is thick so not suited for warmer days. The top fit quite nicely though, had the rest of it fit me it would have been a great look!

Stylist Review

This dress was so adorable! I love ruffles on black dresses - they balance out the edginess with a little femininity! I tried to wear it without the little spaghetti straps, but it didn't work out. They dress was literally sliding off of me. That being said, it was definitely too big in a size 12. I would've tried an 10 or even a 8 for a snugger fit throughout. Otherwise, the dress was super pretty and it was really comfortable! The fabric was thick and great quality. I'd rent this in a heartbeat for my next date night or night out!

Cute dress, but weird fit

Although the dress is really cute on the hanger, it did not look good on. I'm a size 8, but I got a 10 in this dress. Big mistake. It runs really large. The straps would not stay up! I tried to tuck them in, but it still looked weird. There was about an inch of extra fabric on the straps.

Adorable but a bit big.

This dress was a lot of fun and I got a lot of compliments. The only thing I will say is that it does run a little big- especially in the chest area and the straps. I am a 36DD and a size 10 felt a bit big to the point where I was a little worried at first. In the past I've always ordered a size bigger as my back up, and I wish I had done the size smaller because I think I would have felt more comfortable in an 8. This dress was a lot of fun though, and I really liked it.

This dress was so fun and unique! I loved how unique the sleeves were

It fit me great in the waist and hips, however, the length was a bit too short to wear heels. I was also shocked at how large it was up top considering how it fit so well in the waist. Probably not the best choice for those who are more narrow up top.

It was so fun and sexy but I had to pin the cleavage closed.

I have a big bust so it showed too much cleavage and I needed to pin it. The fabric was heavy but nice and it was so fun to dance in.
