HA
My long legged ladies - NOPE. The dress is cute but it is so short my butt cheeks were hanging out. I'm only 5'4/5'5 and 110 lbs so I got the XS. It fit fine around my body, it is a shift dress so it was a little loose and flattering BUT it's absurdly short. I wish I had tried a size medium to see if it would have made a length difference because overall it is a super cute dress.

Adorable LBD
The fit is true to size, but the length is very short. I loved the laced top with bow. It goes very well with high boots. Great option for a winter date night. I liked it so much that I bought it.

The bow makes you look like a present! Perfect for a holiday party.
Cute & Sexy black dress with a bow! Loved it.

Charming, but so short!
I'm going to edit my review because, at first, I was disappointed by the fact that this dress felt too short for me to use as a dress - I used it on a different occasion instead, as a tunic over jeans. Paired with a nice bag and shoes, I received compliments all night on my outfit! This is a great little dress, elegant, comfy and in a great material. However, I am 5'6'' and it really runs too short on me! Had to use it as a tunic, with pants underneath, as it really felt barely longer than a t-shirt.

Great fit!
Originally rented for work event but it was way too short for work so I wore it for a dinner date. Definitely needed to wear tights with it. I got lots of compliments on it and would defiantly rent it again!

Anniversary dinner
Rented this as part of my unlimited, and I intended to wear it for one of my boyfriend's work events. However, our anniversary dinner ended up being more casual than we had initially thought, so I wore it for that instead. Super comfortable, GREAT for petite women! Being a shift it wasn't terribly flattering in pictures, but that is the only con. I tend to look for things that run a bit small, because I tend closer to a 00 than a true 0. I loved that this dress was slim enough through the sides but still fit like a shift. Wore it with red lace pumps and simple jewelry. Well made, cute (looked just like the pictures), and super comfortable! It was great for a relaxing date night, and my boyfriend (who doesn't normally like shift dresses) liked it as well.

Awards dinner
I'm always an XS in everything but the XS was so short that if I bent over or lifted my arms, you'd see my butt. Went with the small and really liked it. Got many compliments. The bow felt like it's been dry cleaned too many times. Very cute, classy LBD. I wore it to my company's awards dinner.

Short, but so cute!
I wore this to a holiday party and got a ton of compliments! Being 5'3 I usually don't run into dresses being too short on me, but this one was a little questionable. It was so cute that I still decided to wear it and just made sure not to bend down.

Don't ignore the other reviews - too short to wear!
I didn't listen. I should have. This dress is ridiculously short - like less than an inch below my booty cheek. It looks like a shirt. I was in Vegas and wanted a fun Vegas dress, but this was totally unwearable.

Molto bene!
You gotta love being able to wear a Valentino to work! I felt awesome in this dress. It is very comfortable and is super cute. I know the Red is for a younger customer but the elegant details made this one seem timeless and very Audrey Hepburn to me. I thought at 46 I could still pull it off. I think I did! The skirt is a bit short but working a long, busy shift in it, I was not impeded from lifting or moving in any way. It was such a treat to wear something like this to my Italian restaurant! Bellisima!

Cute for a birthday dinner
This dress definitely runs short, but loved it for a semi-casual birthday dinner out. Paired with a longer sweater and heels it was comfy but I felt gorgeous for my day!! Would rent again for a night out, but maybe pair with tights/leggings.

Perfect little black dress for a date night.
I'm 5'2" and it was pretty short on me. The fabric was thick and high quality, really comfortable to wear all night long.

Arrived with a broken zipper
Couldn't wear it because the zipper was broken but it was very short. Also the material was not as luxe as I expected it to be. Overall just ok.

This dress was microscopic. I could barely even call it a shirt, let alone a dress.
This dress is terrible. Way too short. It wasn't even wearable.

Yikes - So Short!
I ordered this dress and was so excited to wear it for a night out in NYC. However upon receiving the dress I learned that it is inexplicably short. Full disclosure, I am tall, but I have never ordered a dress from RTR that fit me like a shirt. The dress stopped at the top of my hip bone. I'm sure if you're 5'5 or below this dress would be adorable, but for anyone on the taller side it is un-wearable.

The dress is very cute. It is very short (as other reviewers have mentioned), but I didn't mind that. I loved the style.

Dress was super fun to wear to an art gallery party.
It is not meant to be fitted. I didn't have any issues with it being too tight on my hourglass figure. It was pretty short, just came to my fingertips... and I'm 5'3". I wore it with black tights and black ankle booties.

Feminine Valentino mini, but a bit too mini for me!
Love this dress but it truly is a mini in every aspect. I'm 5' 4" and it still falls a bit too high for comfort. Perfect for the 5' 2" and below though!

way too short
This dress was so short on me it was basically a long shirt - I could not have worn it as a dress - the material also didn't feel high quality - too bad - it's a cute design

I didn't get to wear it to what I had rented it for.
This dress was too short it could have easily used 3in added on to the hem. Also it was not very flattering on my body type which is petite and curvy.

50s/60s Retro Vibe
It was very cute and true to size, but I ended up wearing a different outfit to the party I attended. I will probably rent this again for a different event. It has a very sweet retro feel to it. I would have liked it to fit a little shorter (but I'm a shorty). It could easily be hemed with hem tape.

Super cute dress but way short and I am 5'2.
I could see that the dress was short on the model but with legs that go forever I thought on me it would be normal length. Not so much. It was way to short to wear to a gala event, even if I added hose or tights with it. Would be a cute, evening out dress but not formal. Add 3 more inches and we are good to go.

wore to work with a jean jacket over to "casual it down".
I'm only 5' so the length is perfect! The arm holes are quite small and rub and the chest is tight for a small. But it looks fabulous & the dress material is stretchy and comfortable.

Cute dress, but very short. Quality of fabric is not impressive.
This dress was very short. I wore this with long leggings because it fit more like a shirt than a dress. The dress looks very cute online, but the quality of the materialis not that impressive. I would not rent this for a formal event. I used it for a regular date night or night on the town.

One of my favorite rentals - incredibly flattering shoulder fit and design
Great for women with wider shoulders. The fabric is non-staticky and very movable. The bow is cute without being babyish by being slightly asymmetrical. Flattering fit and attractive without being loud.

Classic and comfy!
This dress fit perfectly and wasn't too tight so I had plenty of space for Christmas Eve dinner! It was the right length on me which might be short on some people but I found it perfect.
