I got nice complements on the dress. I felt comfortable. It was great.
There was a little extra room in the shoulders. I wore the dress with the side zippers closed. Maybe if it is open you need and the sleeves hand down longer it would weigh the shoulders down more. I was happy to keep it zippered though and they sleeves were anyways almost too long so it would have been way too long if I had them unzipped.

Felt so sexy!
I wore this for a dinner date for my 25th birthday. My husband had booked us a dinner cruise out of the city, The dress fit like a glove and made me feel so sexy in it. My husband loved how the dress showed all my curves and made me want to buy it! This was a great birthday dress.

I got a ton of compliments on the dress.
I wore this to a business function. It fit true to size. I have very long arms, and the sleeves fit perfectly (a rarity for me). The bottom hem hit mid knee-cap. The material is somewhat thick, but I never got overheated. The dress was relatively form fitting, so I wore some tummy control undies to suck things in. A great dress if you are going for a tasteful, classy, refined, professional look.

Classy dress with fun details
I rented this to wear to a party and loved everything about it except the zipper bunched right above the small of my back and I ended up not wearing it because of the side profile it gave me. The material is very nice and thick and almost has a Spanx effect. The gold zippers give a little bit of shine and the black detail down the middle gives a narrowing look to your waist.

Luv the dress
Wore this piece to a New Years Eve Party and danced the night away. My husband and friends loved the dress. I made every head in the club turn and I felt very confident.

Another winner!!
I love Rachel Roy dresses! They are made for women! I wore this to a sweet sixteen and looked fab! I added fishnets and knee high boots to complete the look, and it worked out great. Very comfortable for dancing. It's a thick knit, so it was perfect for the chilly hotel where the party was held. Winner! Winner!

Very Chic
This dress is wonderful and can hide problem areas. Flattering shape, hugs in all the right places. Does not ride up. Very easy and care-free dress. Please note that the fabric is thick and you will be very hot if you wear this to an event that does not have superb A/C.

This was my first night out since my daughter was born.
Winter in NYC required long sleeves! This dress was warm and looked great. I was a bit unsure of how to dress my post partum body but this dress looked great. Unfortunately, when I saw the pictures, I wasn't thrilled. I think it was too much fabric for me and made me look a little bulky, especially in the chest. It was a very comfortable dress though and I loved the color. The length was great too, it hit me just about the knee.

Show off curves while keeping it classy!
This dress is great! very snug and stretchy at the same time. The sleeves are long. The accents with the zippers I loved and paired it with the perfect purse. The quality of the material is top notch. Very classy for a date night or for work. I would rent this again.

Loved this stylish and classy dress!
I loved this well-made dress and I wish I owned it! The fabric and construction were substantial and felt great. I am usually between either a 4 or 6 depending on the style of dress, and went with the 6 on this one. It's body con, and I felt the fabric laid more cleanly in the 6, and also felt that the waist sit a little high in the size 4 (I am 5'7" 135 and not leggy). I loved the color block and it is very flattering. It was easy to wear, the sleeves are a bit longer which I liked, but I wouldn't pair this with a statement bracelet or cuff. I received lots of compliments and was comfortable all night! My husband loved it and he's picky. I had been eyeing this one for a while, and I would call it a 'must rent!'.

This dress fit perfectly.
This was a great dress for an evening February party since it had the long sleeves. It was very comfortable and definitely hugs your curves. It also was a nice length, I am 5'8 and it fit me perfectly above the knee.

Awesome service!
Pros: Color blocking Details in garments, zipper, etc. Dress has a pencil fitted skirt, and ended slightly above the knees on me. Cons: not made for the woman with a large rump! There was a gap from the small of my back to the top of my behind. The dress wasn't able to lay flat and the look would have been extremely tacky. So it was a no go...

Sophisticated sexy!!!
Wore this to a double date dinner at a fancy joint, felt like a stunner! I'm 40 now so I want to dress foxy without crossing that line, you know? This dress hugs and is trendy but nudges instead of screams. It's fantastic. The details make this dress. I wore with AV MAX Gold Tetra Chain Earrings and it was perfect. The gold dangle of the zippers mimiced the gold of the earrings, and the geometric earrings mirrored the geometric layout of the dress. Great for cooler nights, material is thick cottony and warm and cozy!

Hugs your curves!
I am typically between a 0 and a 2 and I could barely get the 0 on! I ending up wearing the 2 wine tasting and it definitely feels like a designer dress. I am not sure it was flattering on my mid section, but I imagine if you have a longer middle then it would look great.

The original dress I ordered didn't fit. Customer Service was soo nice about getting me this one.
My first dress had no stretch to it so this one worked out perfect! My large hips and rear fit easily into this dress but not uncomfortable where you want to keep adjusting it. Everyone was so very nice to get this overnighted when the first dress didn't work. Also the young lady at the showroom that originally helped me was very patient in finding me outfits that went along with my specifications. I will definitely use their service again.

A great cocktail dress for those chilly winter evenings!
I rented this dress for my department's holiday party and it was a huge hit! The fabric is thicker so it was perfect for January in Minnesota. I paired it with black tights and black booties and received a lot of compliments. I especially loved that the length was just right for a company-sponsored event, conservative but still sexy.

Such a great dress for a big art gallery opening. It wasn't over the top- but stylish and edgy.
Very well made. Thicker material and perfect for the colder months. I paired it with black opaque tights and leather heeled booties.

Obsessed, OBSESSED with this dress!!
My husband picked this out from several RTR options I presenting him for his business's grand opening party. It was a cocktail reception, and although the majority of his clients are business men in suits (and with this dress I would fit right in), I worried I would be too "office-y" for such an important, festive day for both of us. As soon as the compliments started rolling in, I knew I had the right dress! This dress hugs in all the right places, making for a very classy dress with a sexy silhouette. Conservative sexy if you will. From men to women; from people I knew to people I didn't know; from young to old(er), the compliments were abundant, insistent and extremely flattering. My favorite compliment of the night: "Now THAT is a dress." This is a dress worth owning. I would rent again in a heartbeat for a business party or event. I couldn't believe the endless sea of compliments!

THIS DRESS ROCKS!!!!!!!
OMG I love this dress so much. I swear I would love to own it. I got so many compliments it was ridiculous. I rented this dress for a holiday party and I was the best dressed HANDS DOWN!!!! Everyone else had on dresses to small and very revealing. I straight murdered everyone fully clothed!!! This dress is so comfy and hugs your curves to the max. It was the perfect dress for a chilly night party. I have no complaints at all.

I could not wear this dress- I run a little more petite, but haven't had this issue with other rentals.

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!

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!

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.

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!

This dress was made for curves.
This dress is great for pear shapes. Hugs your curves. I wore stockings to help smooth stomach area. Lots of compliments. Highly Recommend if you like showing off curves. It's high neckline makes it an understated sexy!

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.

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 :)

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.

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.

Overall, great dress.
I typically wear a size 0 or 2 in dresses, and the size 0 in this dress fit like a glove. It was very figure flattering; however, the neckline was a little higher and tighter than it appears in the photo and it irritated my neck slightly. I wasn't too crazy about the zipper detail on the shoulder because I felt it made my arms look bulky. Overall, it was a pretty dress and perfect for a late fall occasion, although I don't believe I would rent again or consider purchasing.
