Nice dress, but not for taller gals
This dress is beautifully made, and is a really nice concept, but the seams / darts hit at all the wrong spots if you are on the taller side - I also ordered a size up, but that one was too big everywhere else; bottom line: great dress if you are 5'5 or shorter

BIG Zero
I think a 00 might have fit but the 0 was so large that the dress looked dumpy and swallowed me. The pictures look great, so this review is based strictly on fit. The fabric and color were attractive.

Loved the dress!
I ordered an 8 and and 6 for my backup size. The 8 was tight but it worked out just fine! Hugs curves, very form fitting. No way the 6 was going to fit though. I wore the dress to work during the day then went straight to a company holiday party that night with black patent pumps. The exposed zipper down the back is a nice touch.

I wore this dress for my college graduation. It was perfect for the occasion and the frigid weather!
I wore this dress for my college graduation ceremony and party. It was perfect for the occasion. It is hard to tell from the picture but the sleeves are black, not navy blue. I ordered sizes 4 and 6, and both fit fine. I decided to go with the 4 and found it a bit snug in the hips as the day went on and found myself adjusting that area to sit down quite a lot. Overall I am happy with the rental the quality of the dress was lovely and as I said this dress was perfect for the occasion.

Slimming and Stylish!
Loved this dress! I wore it for a winter wedding rehearsal dinner. I felt sexy, yet weather appropriate. The black panels on the sides were definitely slimming (and who doesn't love that!?). The dress has some stretch, but not a lot, so I would recommend sizing up for your backup size, especially if you are "bottom heavy" like I am.

Sharp dress and comfortable too!!
Very comfortable, versatile, and snazzy looking dress. Make sure you wear it with bold jewelry (I wore it with a thick, "Mr T"-like, gold necklace and gold cuff) and received many compliments. I thought it ran a little big (so maybe that's why it was comfy!), but was very pleased. Thank you RTR!

More Office Chic than Date Sexy
(Pardon the selfie... only remembered to snap a photo as I was about to take it off) The dress is longer than it might appear on the model. I am a little over 5'8 and it came below my knees. The material is very nice, form fitting - but not in a clingy sexy way. Great dress for an office event (client dinner, meeting, etc.) but it felt a bit stuffy for a night out. The shoulders felt a bit narrow so stuck up a bit as well. I did not wear it for my birthday as planned :( , instead I paired it with boots and wore it to the office.

didn't wear it
It was long (I'm 5'4) and felt matronly... besides that it was too small for me. I think you need a taller, slender frame to pull this dress off.

Not flattering.
I ordered the size 0 and 2, it ran a little big so I went with the 0. This dress was not very flattering and I am a zero with size D cup. The dress was squishing me and the dress was form fitting which was great but the sleeves were big. I ended up not even wearing the dress b/c it looked funny.

Very versitile while visiting Toronto.
It worked great to wear out to dinner while visiting my daughter in Toronto for a long weekend. It looked great with black tights and boots which was supers since it was so cold when we visited. Love the dress.

A day-to-night all-star. Well-made and work appropriate, too!
I've rented this dress twice, once for a fundraiser and once for a work function. So obviously I love it--and I am probably going to buy it. Super well made, and somehow form-fitting yet conservative. If you're in between sizes, size down. The only downside to this dress is a little extra tummy fabric.... I actually think it would be AMAZING as a mid-stage maternity dress. As weird as that sounds, this is an awesome dress. I promise! UPDATE: I ended up buying this dress because it's really that awesome and work-appropriate.

Finding it was true to size, maybe even a tad larger than size!
I rented this because it was a modest cocktail dress for an awards banquet. And I paired it with a pair of sky high nude pumps. PAY ATTENTION to the picture, I thought the dress was solid navy, while it actually has black panels! This shocked me when I saw it but decided to try it and low and behold I think the black actually made it better and more sliming! The fabric was nice, it kept me warm which was the goal and the length was perfect! A younger me would have thought the length was too long but now a days a little modesty never hurts!

Great fall/winter cocktail dress! Love the 3/4 length sleeves and it fits like a glove
I wore this to my friend's engagement party in January. It was great and I received a lot of compliments on it from a wide age-range of people. If you have a cocktail event in the winter, this dress is great for color and coverage. The sides panels and sleeve are black while the rest of the dress is a navy blue so in dimmer lighting it all looks like one color but it helps make you look a bit slimmer in pictures.

Classic with a twist
Wore this for a work cocktail party and it fit perfectly. The black darts made the dress feel a bit more contemporary and also helped to accentuate my waist. Received a lot of compliments.

Unique and flattering
Modest dress, with fun color blocking. Sleeves were pretty baggy and loose while the rest of the dress is fitted, so it looked a little large on top. But a flattering look nonetheless.

Classy!
Wore this dress for a work event that I hosted - I was looking for something modest/work-appropriate, but still stylish. The size 8 fit well, but I wore the 10 only because I knew I would be doing a lot of "running around" and behind-the-scenes coordination and needed room to move. :)

Classy dress!
I had to laugh when I took this dress out of the box. Seriously, It looks like a choir robe on the hanger! If I hadn't seen how beautiful the model and RTR customers looked in it, I would have been in a panic. My husband eyed it questioningly when he first saw it, but when he walked in the door and I was wearing it and getting ready to run out the door, he said, "WOW!" I wore it to a charity dinner with some girlfriends and it was perfect for the event. People were dressed in anywhere from jeans to long, black skirts, and I felt completely appropriate amongst them all. I truly am sorry I didn't get a pic of myself with the dress on because I have to admit.... it looked good!

Very flattering
One note, I thought this dress would have more stretch to it based on the picture but it doesn't really. I wore my normal size but could have easily sized up for a fit that was a little less tight.

Form flattering and fun!
What a fabulous ensemble! This dress was very flattering for my frame and enhanced curves while still being conservative enough for a formal dinner date. An expert design and easy to dress up or down depending on the night-I guarantee I'll rent this dress again. A win!

High quality dress
This was a good choice for a charity benefit. It is a fairly conservative dress although the gold zipper jazzes it up a bit. And I'm glad I rented a gold bracelet to wear with it. The material of the dress is very nice and the fit was just right.

It has nice stretchy, thick fabric.
There is very defined stitching where the torso ends and the hips begin so the dress looks ridiculous if you have a longer torso (i.e., the hip stiching will begin at your stomach and look all puffy).

My engagement party
I was devastated when the white dress I ordered arrived with a few small stains on it but RTR was amazing and had 2 additional dresses sent overnight to me. I loved this dress! It was super flattering on my body type and could not have been happier with the service.

Work conference magic
The dress runs true to size. The 6 fit me perfectly. Was a very sexy conservative dress. I wore it to a work conference. It was comfortable and classy. My only complaint is that the stomach area was a little big. Overall, I was quite happy with the dress.

Modest yet Flattering!
I wore this dress to a rehearsal dinner on a cold October night. The sleeves made it practical and the slim cut still showed off my curves. This dress could definitely be worn to a business function. I'm 5'5" and it hit just at the knee.

This is a great dress for a work event. Conservative hemline and neckline, and accentuates curves without hugging them too tightly. Would not be flattering if it were a tight fit.

I stood out in a good way!
I rented this dress for a research presentation. Every other presenter wore a pant suit but I stood out in a good way. I was nervous that the v-neck might cut too low but it was the perfect cut, on the length as well! I added a slim black belt around the waist and paired it with some black heels. Had to switch to black flats on my flight home but was still comfortable in the dress when traveling.

Sexy and cute
It was a very sexy and cute dress. I ended up not wearing it as the arms were too long on my short frame and it hugged curves but not parts I wanted hugged. I am normally an 8 but ordered the 10 since other girls said it ran small. I won't rent it again but I liked the color blocking

Perfect for my office holiday party
This dress fit perfectly and was super comfortable. Great for the holiday party at my office. The dress colors can be hard to capture in dark rooms, so make sure to take your pre-party pictures in a well lit area.
