Not the best fit for my body type - curvy
It definitely shows curves. I'm a true 10 and ordered the 10. It was tight for work but not flattering for going out either. It didn't fit my body type very well. The sleeves are funky - you'll notice zippers at the top of the sleeves if you look closely. Again, it wasn't too flattering on me. It could be a great going out / nice dinner dress for the right person. Color block is nice.

Perfect dress for a chilly night out in Vegas MLK weekend.
This dress was perfect for the chilly weather out in Vegas because the material is thick (it also helped keep everything in). I didn't wear tights and I was good. I think the dress was classy and fun.

Great work dress.
A little stretchy - but thick fabric, so very flattering. Looks great with black tights in late fall/winter. I love this dress and will rent it again.

Fancy date night.
This is a wonderful dress. I wore this with some platform high heeled booties and a simple pendant necklace. The dress doesn't need more than that. I could have worn the 12 but I found the 14 more comfortable in the shoulders and back area. The dress is wonderfully thick - great for fall or winter. The length is modest. Excellent quality. My only complaint would be the back, with the zipper, bunches and does not lay flat. I wore this with a traditional bra and light control pair of Spanx to smooth out things. Definitely felt chic.

Wore it for my graduation from nursing school. Loved it!
This is the first time I used RTR and loved the dress. I wore it to my graduation pinning ceremony for nursing school. It was the perfect combination of conservative with a little bit of sass. Got tons of compliments. It's very form fitting, but thick so doesn't show all the flaws. Very flattering. I ordered the 8 and 10, but ended up wearing the 10 because my boobs are so huge. Highly recommend.

Good choice for winter
This was not the best dress for my body type. I have a straight figure and broad shoulders, so the horizontal line at the shoulders and vertical lines down the front just made me look MORE straight and MORE broad. This is a dress for curvy women with narrower shoulders! But I liked the idea of it. It's good quality. Since it's a thick knit, it was both comfortable and warm for a chilly night. The fabric has no shine at all, so it would be a good option for work, too. I liked the length and silhouette, but the design just wasn't the best for my body.

Perfect dress for the event.
Dress was great for a wintertime luncheon. The dress is flattering for my build and comfortable. Decided to wear the 10 as it was a little longer (My hips are full) The fabric is thick and has give, follows your curves, but looks smooth, sleek. I did wear spanx. A form fitting dress can be comfortable and flattering. My only complaint has with other dresses I have rent. The hidden zippers are so hard to zip up. I need help with them. Had to stop to have a friend zip up the back.

Great fit -- accentuates your silhouette without feeling too tight.
I wore this dress on a first date and absolutely loved the fit. It really accentuates your silhouette without feeling super tight. I'm a pear shaped (small boobs, larger behind) and find it difficult to find dresses that fit. This one was a dream. I would recommend going down a size for the back-up size. I'm typically a 4 but ended up wearing the 2 because the 4 was a little bulky.

Warm covered up dress, perfect for winter!
Love that it shaped my body well. Wore this out to a birthday dinner then dancing afterwards. I love how the dress could transition to just about any event. Lots of people had complimented me on the dress and that it looked like I lost weight. I think it was just the dress. ;) It was cold out, about 30 degrees, so being covered up helped a lot and I wore black stockings and black heels to go along with it. My fiancé was sad I had to return it. I would rent the dress again!

Super flattering, perfect for fall or winter
I loved this dress and wish I could keep it. Other reviewers as well as RTR recommend that you size down for your back-up and glad I did because that is what I ended up wearing. The material is thick ponte knit and stretchy. I wore high-waisted shapewear to smooth things out and the dress helped with some of the smoothing as well. This dress is meant to fit tight and hug your body. It was very flattering and on the warm side, perfect for my fall night out.

Slimming!
I wore this dress to a baby shower and received TONS of compliments. It was a thicker material that kind of holds you in. I would totally rent this dress again- it made me look and feel amazing. I'm glad I ordered a size smaller for my backup size. I ended up wearing the 6 which was a little tight, but for a sitting event it was fine. I didn't try on the 8, so I can't speak to how that fits. But I was very happy!!

Sleek and sexy dress
I rented this dress as a back-up option for a cocktail event for my job. I ended up wearing it out to dinner instead since I really liked it, but thought it was a bit too sexy for me for work. The dress was very form fitting, but I wore spanx underneath, and was still pretty comfortable. The heavy fabric is great for cooler weather and I loved having the long sleeves, which were actually a good length. Overall this was a great dress, I'm disappointed I forgot to take a picture!

Pair with chunky gold accessories & shape wear!
This a truly body con dress. I have a tummy so I won't rent it again. I got tons of compliments despite not feeling 100% comfortable in the dress. It's a great design, material and warm, so great for colder weather.

I wore this dress to speak at a conference and I got a lot of compliments on it! It was formal enough that I felt confident and sexy enough that all the men couldn't stop staring at me! Including my very handsome boyfriend! I really love this dress!

I didn't end up wearing this.
It fit well - but it was a lot of fabric... I have small chest and I think it was just a little too much happening for me to pull off. It was super comfy and would be great for a winter or cold weather event!

This dress was very comfortable to wear and fit me very nicely. Even my boss gave me compliments when I wore this to work. I paired it with stiletto boots because it was cold weather and this looked great. Sure it would also pair nicely with pumps.

Perfect for a February wedding in California. Got tons of compliments!
This dress fit like a glove. It's definitely different (some people said "its very star trek" which maybe isn't a compliment?) but I was happy to not be in a lace dress like everyone else at the wedding. The material is think enough to hide imperfections but you can also wear spanx. Be aware though---because the material is so think, this dress is really warm, which is great for a winter wedding, but REALLY hot for dancing.

Fit was a little off for me
This dress is nice and thick, you can tell it's very well made. Personally I had a lot of extra thick fabric that gathered at the small of my back; however, the rest of the dress fit like a glove. This would be great for a cool night, and maybe a more square, straight body shape.

Bold, sleek and slimming dress.
The shoulder details are sleek and bold. I love the bluish purple color and the vertical black strip in the middle. It helps make a petite gal look taller and I'm sure a tall person look even more statuesque. The dress really hugged my curves the right way - for someone with an hour glass figure this is usually a challenge. Perfect dress for a work dress up day! Loved it.

Loved the fit!
I loved everything about this dress! The weight of the fabric is a bit heavy which worked will for me because the weather was pretty chilly when we went out. I loved that the dressed hugged really well without feeling too tight. I don't think I could have gone down a size though. The dress might have been too tight around my arms. I went for the unzipped look on the sleeves, but I'm not sure it was that noticeable if you weren't up close. I would definitely rent again and/or purchase this dress :)

Beautiful thick material, perfect for cold winter!
I really loved the comfortable stretch and the thick dress material. Very well made. I wore this to a political fundraiser and it was a very appropriate and respectful dress. Plenty of compliments. The only issue was the dress occasionally would ride up and I needed to pull down into place. Other than that, I would rent it again.

Who are you wearing?
I received the dress as a back up, but I absolutely loved it. Worn to a business function and I got asked the question "who are you wearing?" Who!?! I was never asked that "who" question before so that was cool. The material is very thick. Don't wear this somewhere in hot temps. Felt important in this dress. Thank you RTR!

Gorgeous figure-flattering dress for a bachelorette party!
This dress definitely runs large - I am usually a solid size 6, but this looked much better in a 4. I wore spanx underneath so everything would be smooth, but the material was thick and very forgiving anyways. Highly recommend! Perfect for a winter party!

Comfortable, form fitting, conservative, yet fun dinner party dress!
First night out in a while since baby was born. This dress is very form fitting, but flattering. I am between a 6 and an 8 and tried the 8 first. It felt snug, but could work. I tried the 6 just to see and it fit the same in the body but so much more flattering in the bust and arms. I'm small on top with wider hips. I felt comfortable all night and got lots of compliments. I wore it in Chicago winter with tights and ankle boots.

It's those zippers... :)
I wore this dress throughout a day of combined work events culminating with an after-hours networking party that my company sponsored. I absolutely loved this dress - it fits beautifully - smoothly following your curves; the quality is outstanding, and it is striking in that "not trying, but I'm definitely the It Girl in this room" kind of way. The material is forgiving, and warm for the winter. The seaming of the back is a flattering surprise. But without a doubt the shoulder zippers feature are what make this dress special. They're styling genius. The best part was when my VIP client friend finally had to ask about the shoulder zippers..."now, do these actually work??" It's a fun dress. Will definitely rent it again.

I wore this dress for my engagement photos. Loved the classic look and colors.
I ended up wearing the 6. It was a little snug but it's a body con dress. I felt great in it! I rented Kate Spade earrings to go with it and it was just the look I was going for. Would def rent this dress again.

My Fiancé's jaw dropped when he saw me in it, and he kept saying I wish you could keep this dress!
The dress fit me like a glove! In the best way! The material was great, it had somewhat of a stretch to it, but the material had a thick, soft feel to it. I liked the length, I am 5'3" so it can be hard to find a dress that hits the right point on your leg. It was right above the knee. It could have been maybe an inch shorter for another occasion, but it was perfect for the dinner date I went on. If you order this dress you won't be disappointed!

Very chic and comfortable but runs a bit large
Love the dress- color, material, the gold zippers are perfection.. But for me it ran a little large. Gave me square shoulders and wasn't as form fitting as I had hoped. It was probably just my body type. . wish it had fit a bit better because it really is a stunning dress!

Sleeves too long and shoulders too wide for Petites!
I could not wear this dress- I run a little more petite, but haven't had this issue with other rentals.
