I wore this dress for a work meeting event in New York City. It was professional and comfortable.

Nice dress! I wore this for a professional business meeting and felt great in it! I rented a size 2 and 4-- but ended up wearing the size 2. The material is thick-- which was perfect for a cold winter day in the city. It did bunch up and was not as figure fitting on me as in the photo of the model --- but overall, great dress and was very happy I selected it.

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!

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 dress was a little too tight to my curves for me at first, but my boyfriend loved it on me. The material is thick so paired with tights made for a great winter dinner outfit! I'm short, 5'3"... The sleeves a little long and went to my knee but overall good fit. It's slimming to any body ... Just have to embrace your curves and be ready to show it off!!

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.

Obsessed, OBSESSED with this dress!!

Size worn: 0
Rented for: Party
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!

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!

Size worn: 12
Rented for: Date
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 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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Size worn: 4
Rented for: Other
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.

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.

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.
