Wasn't able to wear it.
I normally wear a size 10, but read this dress ran small and ordered the 12 as well. I ended up not wearing this dress because the fit was really odd. First I tried the 12. It was huge in my shoulder and chest area to the point where it was falling off my shoulders, yet the mid-section of the dress was super tight, but then fit normally around my hips and legs. So it basically looked like a tube with a frumpy sack on top. The 10 was too small. Unfortunately not a good match for my body type!

Simple and stunning
I rented this dress for a wedding - a wedding that didn't tell us too much about the dress code or the "feel" of the party. So, you can't really go wrong with a black dress. The asymmetrical top and bottom (which isn't captured in this photo) are flattering designs, but the fit is pretty tight, with a little bit of stretch in the body. The overall feel of the dress was comfortable, and despite my size being a 4 in most dresses, the 2 fit perfectly.

Runs small
I got this dress when the alternate size of the dress I ordered wasn't available. It was so small that I couldn't come close to fitting in it. It looked pretty and had a nice feel to it.

Great dress! One of those that looks even more amazing on than in the photo or on the hanger.
I wore this dress on a girls trip/Mother's Day vacation to Bermuda. My girlfriends said it was so stunning on me that I had to buy it!

This dress was perfect for the birthday party - evening affair at country club
I usually wear a size 8- and it looked great - I wore the 10 to give me a little more room to dance.

I felt pretty in my RTR dress!
Pros: In this particular style of dress it ran true to size. Because the material & style "hugged" make sure to be sure of your size & know there is NO room to play. Otherwise I was complimented on the style & fit. Cons: The zipper was difficult to work with. Not sure if it was due to wear & tear but would get stuck.

This dress was nice but I would not rent it again.
Fit very well but you couldn't really see the cut out part which is what would make it stand out from every other LBD.

Chic and modern. Asymmetric cut adds to the appeal. Excellent cocktail dress. Easy and comfortable
True to size. I am 4 usually and this dress fit perfectly. It is an unforgiving dress do not forget the spandex. I was underwhelmed when I opened the package but loved it when it wore it. Got tons of compliments all evening long. Paired it with black high heels and a red clutch.

Simple, elegant dress.
Wore to a black tie preferred event and fit right in with the crowd. Elegant, easy to wear dress that only needs earrings and black pumps. Sheath cut out and angled cuts adds a little character.

Elegant and flattering
First experience with RTR - loved it! I'm often a size 2, however the hug in the bust area moved me to wear the alternate size 4, which fit wonderfully! The silhouette of this dress is elegant and feels alluring. I enjoyed the length and interesting asymmetrical angles. I received several compliments at the event!

Sexy. Sleek. A great little black dress!
This was my first RTR dress. I felt sexy and classy. It was a little tight zipping up through the ribs but fit great. I'm hooked to RTR!

Comfortable, classy but flattering and a little sexy. Thought it would be too long on me, but it ended up working great. Highly recommend for weddings and occasions where you want to look nice but not too sexy.

Compliments all night long!
This dress was perfect for an engagement party. Classy, but a little different than your standard LBD. The side cut is really not as see-thru as the picture makes it appear. The fit was perfect! I would give the dress 5 stars, but the one I received seemed a little worn and clearly had been re-stitched a time or two in the seams.

A neat design but simple dress
If you have a lot of hip-a bit more then average, this may be a slightly snug fit. It is a little stretchy which helps. I'm very small in the waist and torso, it fit perfectly above the waist and the length was good too. A real nice simple dress overall.

This dress was very firm fitting and flattering. I've rented it again for a wedding next weekend!
The fabric is nice and has some give. I am not used to showing skin at the waist so I was worried about the sheer panel at the waist with my 'foundation garments' so I wore black spanx and the panel just disappears. Beautiful and sexy dress with lots of coverage. Great for curvy girls!

Curve-hugging sex appeal, but classy enough for a wedding. Great for hourglass gals!
Copied the RTR model's look and paired this with the Kenneth Jay Lane Polished Crystal Drop Earrings and Polished Crystal Ring. The look was perfect. The top covered enough, and a conservative enough length for a wedding- but it still hugged my curves in all the right places. SUPER flattering cut. I am a DDD, and didn't have to wear a bra. The material has a little give, which is good, because it JUST fit. I am a size 12, so that's why I put "true to size", but if you've had a big weekend of partying and eating I would recommend sizing up just for a little more room. The backup size 10 did not fit me. Comfortable to wear dancing all night! Would rent this LBD again!

It was a bit snug on my hips, but overall it fit well. I really like the side zipper; it makes the dress so much easier to put on.

I wore this dress to my master's graduation ceremony and then to a nice dinner at the Signature Room
I got both a size 6 and 8, and ended up going with the bigger size simply for comfort reasons. The dress was classy and elegant, but still sexy. Perfect LBD.

Truly elegant, but tough for busty gals
Fabric has no give at all, so not a lot of forgiveness for ladies with large busts. I could only zip it up to about my rib cage. If ribs/bust are ever problem areas for you, do yourself a favor and either order up or find a dress with a stretchier and more forgiving fabric.

Amazing dress for a formal affair.
Wore this dress to a black tie optional fundraiser. I usually wear a size 8 but I'm curvy. The size 8 fit but the 10 gave a bit more breathing room so I went with that. Lots of compliments . . . wish I could keep it!

The dress is a little tight in the bust area so I wore 1 size up and it fit perfectly.

Narrow on bottom
One of the select few rentals I haven't been able to wear. I ordered a size 12 and it was huge on top and way too tight in the hip. I'm pretty solidly hourglass (leaning toward pear) and this is just not for girls like me. If you're big on top and little on bottom then go for it!

Only ok
This would be a good dress to wear to a funeral. Thats all I could think as I wore it. I got a lot of compliments on it, but it was huge on me, hit me in a weird way at the waist so the sheer panel looked strange and the hem hit me below the knee. The shoulder detail that makes the dress also kept slipping since I have narrow shoulders, and with a clinic jacket it looked like it had no straps on that side of the dress. In reality rhe dress was really just huge on me and needed to be tailored to fit correctly.

Angelic angle cuts everywhere!
This dress used angles to define each are of interest. It calls attention to the neckline with the angular drape. The waistline has a sexy cutout covered in chiffon. The legs scream for attention in this dress as the lower angle exploits the sexiness of the legs. Show off your assets in this sexy demure number.

Perfect for formal cocktail party.
First time to use RTR and was so glad I did. I usually wear a 6 or 8 dress but the bottom was a little snug in the 6. The 8 fit perfectly. If you're a pear, like me, go with the bottom size. The top drapes beautifully and both the 6 and 8 fit at the top.

A Perfect Little Black Dress
This fit like a glove in the 6, I am a 32F bra so that can be a challenge, but this didn't smoosh me in the least,I wore this to a Hollywood Awards ceremony and had many people comment on it, it's stylish, beautiful neckline and really comfortable, my first RTR experience was perfection and will be using again. If you need a dress that is elegant , rather than flashy, and has enough details to make it edgy and more interesting than a basic LBD then pick this one, I will rent it again no doubt.

Great dress but runs small!
I rented this to wear for my parents' 40th anniversary celebration. I normally wear a size 10 or 12 depending on the cut. I'm not sure what I was thinking when I ordered this dress, but I ordered a size 10 with no backup size. I could get the dress on, but could not fully zip it. I asked my mom to try it on and she normally wears a size 8 (but could probably fit a size 6) and it fit perfectly on her, so she ended up wearing it. She got plenty of compliments that night. Overall, it was a great dress but it runs a tad small, so keep that in mind when ordering. I would definitely get a backup size to be safe.
