Fun LBD - perfect for work holiday party

This was a very comfortable dress with a bit of fun flare with the black sequined top and fuller skirt (with deep pockets!). I got a lot of compliments. The straps kind of dug into my skin but it didn't bother me too much.

Fun sparkly dress for NYE!

Super comfortable fit. Loved the pockets on the dress. Wore with a strapless bra. The sequence were itchy against my arms but I would rent again.

Very Pretty... But Runs Large

The dress was a backup after the original dress was super small. I thought it was a super pretty.. but extremely large. I usually wear an 8 and luckily RTR sent me a 6 otherwise I would have been swimming in the dress... I think a size 4 would have been much better. Otherwise the dress was great for the event (work Christmas party).

Had a blast at this Valentine's Day dance!

Huge pockets were a bonus! Wouldn't have even needed a clutch. Loved the fitted bodice and the loose skirt - this dress would definitely disguise a post-baby belly. Felt sexy and fun and got a ton of compliments!

STYLIST REVIEW!

This dress was amazing! It's extremely comfortable and the full skirt is very fun. This style definitely runs large, I would size down for your backup size. You can wear a strapless bra with this style but I went with no bra, it was very comfortable. The skirt has pockets big enough for your phone, credit card, and lipstick. I wore this to a charity event but it would be perfect for a wedding or cocktail party.

Looks better online...

The dress was OK. It fit just fine, but the bottom skirt of the dress was just way too puffy. It didn't lay nicely and kind of ballooned around me, as it shows no shape whatsoever. The sequined top was pretty, but overall it just wasn't a winner.

Cute but large

This dress was cute. It was a dress selected by a stylist replacing previous dress that didn't fit. Was overnighted to me (fabulous customer service). It was cute but very large overall. I'm small busted and the top was too big. The dress poofed more than I would have liked and was not flattering on my hips.

This dress made me feel glamorous without trying too hard.

I wore this dress to the ballet and it was perfect for the occasion. I paired it with opaque tight as I am pretty tall and with bare legs it looked a little too short to still be classy. I loved the pockets!

This dress is super flattering and I got a ton of compliments!

It highlighted my waist and shoulders but the skirt was big enough that I was still able to eat dinner and dessert! The length came to right above my knee so it was still formal without being a full gown.

Luxurious and classy!

I loved this dress because it was very modest but still felt fun and flirty. The length is nice on a shorter girl - not criminally short, but not so long that it swallowed me up. It seemed really well made and was super comfy. Plus? Pockets!!

Dress was amazing!

I loved this dress from the moment I saw it. I was even more excited when I received it and it had pockets!!! This dress was extremely flattering and being as it was SO hot (95 degrees and humid), it ended up being a wonderful choice (sleeveless and not too tight). I loved I didn't need to wear a bra; opted against Spanx. The dress was comfy, classy and perfect for the occasion. Having just turned 40 a few days ago, I was looking for a dress that was fun, not too young, but didn't make me feel 40. Mission Accomplished!

It fit perfectly like I thought it would based on other reviews. The pockets were amazing and large so I could fit all my stuff without needing a purse. No complaints here!

Fancy LBD with sequins & pockets!

I wore this to a gala and was looking for a nice, yet conservative, look. The dress was perfect! On top of that, it was so nicely made and in such great condition, no one would have guessed it was rented. Fit was very true to size. Loved the pockets for stashing my lipgloss.

I usually wear a 4 but I went down because of previous reviews and the 2 fit great. The dress is fun, flattering, and I got a ton of compliments. The pockets were an added bonus.

Perfect for a gala!

The dress itself was more well made than I expected. The sequins were criss-crossed overtop of a black fabric which was beautiful. The material of the skirt part was a nicer, heavier material - so it made it look a bit more conservative and high quality. However, even with a nubra it was a bit too big for my chest and waist. It was a bit long for my preferred length, but perfect for the occasion. I definitely found it more appropriate for a political gala I was attending, than for a party or something.

Loved the dress!

This dress was perfect! Fun pockets and cute cut. It runs very big. I am (losing baby weight) usually a 8 in dresses. Sometimes a 10. I wore the 6 comfortably. So glad I sized down for this one. It hides the extra weight around my middle and I felt stylish and beautiful. My aunt said I looked like a "Barbie doll". Thanks for a great night RTR!

This dress was so comfortable and I received so many compliments.

The 4 fit better but the hem was out and some of the sequins were loose so I wore the 2 which thankfully fit and definitely looked less worn. Still loved the dress overall.

I rented this dress for my bachelorette party So comfortable!

I rented this dress for my bachelorette party So comfortable! And I swore I would never wear a dress with pockets because they always make things disproportionate. Not so with this dress! I was about to take my phone and wallet with and not have to worry about them falling out of the pockets. The edging at the arms was a bit fitted, but not uncomfortable. HIGHLY recommend.

Fab neckline, fun dress

This dress was a backup pick when the dress I originally ordered wouldn't be available in my size. It fit perfectly and ended up being a more fun choice than the style I thought I wanted. The neckline is amazing, the skirt is full without being obnoxious, and pockets are always a plus for me. I'd highly recommend this for a party or a night out. It didn't need hardly any accessories with the subtle shimmer of the sequins.

The sequins really made this dress fabulous for this black tie optional event.

I have a very boxy middle so I went with the 6 even though the 4 fit as well but the 6 was more comfortable and fit perfectly. This dress was very comfortable all night and I would certainly rent it again. Wish I could keep!

Really cute dress but it was quite large and long

I wore this out to a club for my trip to San Diego. This was a second option dress and unfortunately they only had the size 14 available. The dress was beautiful and the top detail was really cute. I wore a sticky bra with it since I didn't have a regular strapless bra. I believe the 12 would have been a better fit since the bottom puffs out quite a bit and is long.

Perfecto

The dress was perfect. So elegant but fun. I received so many compliments. I went up to a size 4 to accommodate my bust so I could wear a strapless bra. I was worried about the dress being too short but it fell perfect above my knee. What I loved most about the dress were the large pockets. I was able to hold my cellphone and lip gloss. I will definitely rent this again.

The two size choices were great. Arrived on time and return was super easy!

I wore this for a 5pm wedding. The balance of skirt material and the sequins on top were perfect. The fit of the 8 was great for me. With my low natural waist, the dress' waist was a little high, but I still loved this dress and fit. I even found the cutest wide band belt that had a sequin bow on it, it looked like it came with it. I got compliments all night on the dress, even from the bride! I think RTR gained a lot more followers that night! I will rent again!

It was really comfortable, but perfect for a formal affair. I received several compliments!

I have higher hips and this dress fell right at the waist before flaring out just enough. The sequins rubbed a tiny bit, but I wore it for several hours, so no surprise there. I usually bounce between an 8 and a 10, but the 10 definitely would have been too big. I would have even considered wearing a 6. Overall, perfect for the occasion. Classy and elegant yet fun!

It definitely ran true to size. I am 5'3" and it hit right above the knee which was perfect for me. If you have a large chest I would get a size larger.

A comfortable, flattering, party dress that arrived in excellent condition

I'm a size 8 in pants but usually with formalwear I size up to 10 or even 12 depending on the designer. I ordered the 10 with a backup of 8 and the 8 fit like a glove. I was really impressed with the condition and quality of this dress. I was ready for some missing sequins or loose seams since that easily happens to beaded or sequined dresses with wear, but I couldn't find even one! It was in perfect condition, like I just bought it brand new. I'm 5'5 and wore 4-inch heels and the dress came a couple inches above my knee which I thought was a nice length. The skirt did need to be pressed/steamed so leave a little time to do that. Overall I LOVED IT and wish I could keep it! It was my first RTR experience and I won't hesitate to do it again next time I have an event.

Dazzling but not over the top!

This dress was perfect for my bachelorette party. I had rented another dress but I wasn't super impressed with the quality or fit. I took a risk and had this overnighted, and even though they only had the 2 left it was still great. I'm typically a size 4 and I do think the 4 would have fit better (it was a tad tight in the chest and I couldn't zip it to the tip top which was fine), but it still worked out perfect. Highly recommend this dress if you want to sparkle but don't want to be to flashy. Very happy with the dress and RTR :)

Great look, great quality, with little hassle.... Would definitely do it again!

After recovering from abdominal surgery, I needed a dress for a holiday fund raiser that would leave room at the waist and still be flattering. This dress worked out great! And I loved the large pockets!!! The top was a bit loose fitting, and did snag easily on jewelry. Would definitely rent again.
