LBD
Great length, material. Came with double sided tape, thank God! Slightly big in the chest area, so without the tape it would've kept falling off of me.

LOVE IT.
This is the perfect LBD. So figure flattering. You think it would be plain, but this dress is a show-stopper. Love it, love it, love it. I got so many compliments when I wore this dress to prom.

It is a gorgeous dress. Very simple and perfect for any event.
This dress is so lovely. I felt so beautiful it in. It goes with any accessories, and it's perfect for a variety of events. I wore it to my boyfriend's semiformal and I loved it. I never wanted to give it back!

Wore for Sorority Preference night and was a major hit! Chic and comfy!
Dress fit true to size from what I could tell. The sides had stretch panelling for extra "give" if needed. Throughout my night there wasn't a moment of discomfort! The full skirt makes such a statement and shows off just enough leg to keep it flirty. There was nothing I disliked about this dress!

This LBD was flirty, fun, and the perfect fit!
This dress fit really well and was the perfect LBD! It was a bit shorter than I had anticipated, but I was overall very happy with the look and fit of this dress. It was flirty and fun for a night in Vegas without detracting from the birthday girl's glittered dress! Would recommend for a date night or semi-formal.

Comfortable and great to dance in!
The dress was very flattering, it had a fitted bodice and a flowy skirt that was really fun to dance in! The dress was very simple, so I added some accessories. I wish I had gotten more of a statement necklace to spice it up. The material was okay, not exactly what I was expecting, but all in all it was a great dress for dancing and having fun!

Super cute and fun for a casual wedding.
The fit was great. It was a little short, so when I sat down, there wasn't much underneath me.

Absolutely love this dress! Made me feel great on my birthday!
I absolutely loved this dress! I rented it to go out for my birthday and it was great for the occasion. I considered buying it after but the price swayed me from that decision. It fit me perfectly and was just the right length, which is usually difficult given my height. I loved the fit of the bodice, and the full skirt was very flattering and fun. My friend liked it so much that she wore my backup size to dinner the next night. I would definitely recommend this dress! Probably my best rental from RTR so far!

Great dress, a little on the short side.
I ordered this as my back up dress, when it came in and I tried it on, I fell in love! It was absolutely adorable! I decided not to wear it to the wedding because as some of the other reviewers had stated, it is really short. Now I've never been one to shy away from anything because of it being to short, I love to show off my legs, I have been taking/teaching dance classes for as long as I can remember and my legs are one of my favorite features but, I felt uncomfortable. I feel like this dress is for someone in their late teens/early 20's. I know I am nowhere near being considered old, but I felt like the older mom of 2, trying to still act like she's 20. Having said that, I would for sure recommend this dress to anyone who isn't afraid to wear an adorable dress, that's on the short side. Also, the zipper on the dress that I received was a little tricky.

This dress was PERFECT for a big party. I loved the flowy skirt, it made dancing an awesome time!
This dress fit really well and was perfect for the sweet sixteen that I wore it to. It was fitted at the top (but super comfortable because theres a little bit of stretch around the bodice), and was super flowy on the bottom. It was such a fun dress to dance in. I suggest ordering your second size one size down. I am usually in between a 4 and a 6, but this dress was even a little loose in the size 4. I was very happy with the dress overall! It was flattering, comfortable, and I didn't feel like I had to pull it up every 5 seconds!

A flirty LBD.
This is a very fun LBD for any party. It is very flirty and flowy, perfect to pair with a pair with a killer pair of heels. It is a fun dress to accessorize and make it what you want. The length is perfect, I am 5' 5'' and it hit me about mid thigh.

I didn't end up wearing this dress
The fabric of the dress is extremely staticy and being slightly pear shaped, I did not like the way it hugged me. It could be super cute with the right accessories on someone with the right body though!

Cute and comfy
Rented this for my 19 yr. old niece. She loved it and wanted to keep it. Fun, flirty a little short at 5'5 she wore little boy shorts underneath just in case. Size 6 was perfect. Thank you RTR

Classic and beautiful
Was a little large, but who can be mad about wearing a smaller size? The boning in the dress made me appear thinner. The only flaw is that I had to pull it up occasionally.

I got a lot of compliments on it! It was great, a little big for me but I still loved it!
The fit was good, coming tighter through the chest but still having stretch and the length was good also! The dress was a little big and continued to stretch throughout the night, which was a bummer because I had to keep pulling it up, but I got a lot of compliments on it and will be renting more dresses soon!

great fit, perfect for prom!
i rented this as a sophomore to go to my school's junior prom, and as a lowerclassman i couldn't wear long or anything too flashy, but this dress was perfect! i'm pretty small so i ordered the 0 and the 2 and ended up wearing the 2, it fit like a glove! the length was perfect, not too long that it looked frumpy, but long enough that I could dance and not feel like i was exposed. you could tell that it had been worn a couple times but i got tons of compliments. I even had some of the moms at pre prom tell me i had the best look out of everyone!! thanks rtr!

Wish I had a photo, simple and fun LBD!
This dress was lovely, I wore it to a concert I was performing in and on a date and I felt fabulous. Very poofy skirt but I liked how it twirled, the sweetheart neckline was perfect. I paired with neon heels, it was perfect. It is definitely a simple dress, don't expect a million compliments, but it looks great on.

This dress is beautiful, fun, and flirty. The only thing I would comment on would be the bust area. I wouldn't recommend it for larger busted women as the bodice fit makes it a little difficult. But other than that, it was a great little black dress.

This dress is perfectly awesome!!!! I felt so fantastic in it; I wanted to keep it! I am 5' 1" and 105 lbs. I fit in the 0, but the 2 was a little more comfortable to wear all night. I wore it for New Years so I knew I'd be wearing it for hours. RENT IT!!!!

This dress is flirty, beautiful and comfortable for a long night out! I wore this to a bachelorette party and got tons of compliments. Even though it's strapless, I wasn't pulling it up all night because it fit so well. Also, it's the perfect blank canvas for some great jewelry. The only warning I have for tall girls, like me, is that it's a little short. I love a good mini dress, but I threw some tights on underneath this one just to be safe. Rent this dress, you won't be disappointed. Love it!

Super cute dress and loved the fit but warning - it was pretty short. I would go for the smaller size if you are torn between the two and you are small on top because the sides have stretchy material.

I was so excited when I received this dress! I usually wear a size 6 or 8 and the 6 fit fine thanks to the stretchy elastic back! The cut was very flattering and gave me a waist which i normally struggle with! I wore this to a wedding and it was great, although it was rather short on me and it posed some problems sitting down because of that! Otherwise it was perfect!

This was my first dress I've rented from RTR and i couldn't have been more pleased. It was gorgeous. The shape would fit any body type. It was stretchy and comfortable. I usually have a problem with length, and short dresses tend to look very short on me, but this dress was perfect. I wore it to an outdoor wedding and it was very appropriate. I loved everything about it and I will definitely be renting it again. Also, I received tons of compliments!

This was an amazing prom dress, and I loved the way it fit and looked
I rented this dress for my Junior prom, I ordered a size 2 and a size 4, the 2 ended up fitting my perfectly and coming up a couple inches above my knee. The bodice fit me nicely and I had no trouble with the dress slipping down while I danced. The skirt was so pretty and twirled when I walked, I paired it with nude heels and got so many compliments. Wear a statement necklace and/or earring as the dress by itself is a little plain.

I never cease to be disappointed in the quality of items that they send out. Always impressed.
I recently rented this dress for the fall wedding of a close friend. I am around 5'6", average build, b cup, and usually wear a size 4 or 6 dress. I rented this dress because it looked adorable on the website and appeared to be a decent length. However, when I recieved the dresses, they were much shorter than I had anticipated. Also, because of the stretch on the back side of the dress, it tends to run a bit large, which made me thing that I could have gone for a smaller size so it would fit better in the bodice, but it would not have covered my booty at all. This dress is very flowy, moves very well and very pretty, however, the length left a little to be desired for me. I ended up wearing it with tights and a pair of boy-short shapewear shorts, which worked very well. I love the dress, very much, however, it just was not a good match for me, and I don't think I would end up renting it again.

Amazing, flattering dress!
I rented this dress for a fraternity semi formal. It was really cute and perfect for the occasion. Able to dress it up or dress it down (I wore it with nude heels and stud earrings for a very simple look). Definitely considering renting again -- perfect LBD! I was worried it was going to be too short based on other reviews, since I have long legs, but it was an appropriate length.

All my friends loved this dressed. It was the perfect for my private school's prom.
I would order your normal size and the size down. It is a little loose on the bust but other than that I felt so pretty in it. I definitely think you should pair this dress with some statement accessories.

Always love the compliments I receive when I wear RTR!
I really liked this dress. I am usually and 6 and wore the 6, but I think the 4 would have fit a little better because the top half is actually very stretchy. But it looks so cute and made me want to dance. I received many compliments! It can easily be worn dressed up or down.

The second size was free!
Both of the dresses are from RTR. My daughter and her friend needed a black or red dress for a cocktail party in the city and they both looked amazing! My daughter normally wears a size 6 or 8 but fit perfectly in the size 4. Also, her friend loved the Catherine Malandrino, Sultry Body-Slimming Shift!
