Pretty little black dress
I think it runs small, I'm usually a size 8 and it felt a little tight and this one is short, the size 10 was loose so I decided to stick with the size 8, the scallop design is a little heavy, I think it helps so stays down and feel a little more comfortable even if it's really short

LBD for 21st birthday weekend in AC!
I scoured the website for hours and when I found this, I knew it was what I had been looking for. This dress is all about the scalloped texture, which does a great job concealing your mid section if that is what you're most self conscious of (like myself). Other reviews mentioned it was short, which it is. But it only rode up slightly when I was dancing at the club, not so much that I felt I was consistently pulling it back down. I wore the 6 because the material does not stretch so well, so having a larger bust the 4 was too tight around my chest for me to feel comfortable. Although the 6 was a bit looser all over, I was able to sit comfortably and have a nice meal before heading out to the club. This dress allows for anyone to get creative with accessories, especially a statement necklace! I would rent this dress again and would recommend anyone looking for a birthday outfit to consider this timeless LBD!

Sexy and flattering!
This dress was a perfect choice for a bachelorette party! It was pretty short but it was form fitting enough that it didn't really ride up. It was sexy but also concealed my belly. Would rent again!

RTR is dope! When I first heard about it, I was super amazed and curious. Trying it sealed the deal!
I really liked the dress. Simple but pretty and sexy!!! However, it did run small. I ordered an 8 and a 10 but I didn't even take the 8 out of the plastic. The 10 was kind of snug and super short making it difficult for me to move around that well. Also, the material was super thick which made it hot. I also didn't feel like it did very much for my waist... I think because of the thickness. I did like it.... But, I will likely try something else next time.

Perfect for a fraternity formal!
I ordered an 8 and a 6, I usually wear a 6 but the 6 was way too tight and could barley move and the 8 was a little large around the belly. I didn't really have a problem with wearing the 8, it was overall a success!

Super tiny!! The dress made me feel like an amazon in the mirror but everyone commented on how hot I looked and how they wanted to borrow the dress. I def recommend going up at least two sizes!

Deceiving picture
I went to the NYC store to pick this up and it fit horrible. This dress would work on a girl with a more straight and narrow figure. It was way to tight in my hips and baggy in the waist. The texture is beautiful though.

Great dress! So comfortable and classic. Lots of compliments all night!
Very short and does ride up a bit. But great details that flatter. Size up for a bit more length/breathing room.

LOVE!!
Loved this dress! Rented it for my birthday for dinner/drinks out. VERY SHORT like the other reviews say! But I absolutely loved this dress!! Very comfortable material. Showed off my legs :-) I felt very sexy in this dress. Would definitely rent it again for a date night. But it's probably not appropriate for a more formal event with the length.

Great LBD
The dress had a great fit I wore the size 10 because it felt better around my chest and was longer and I'm only 4'11". I got a ton of compliments though!

Easy!
Dress was easy to wear. The material is thick and allows for a flattering yet comfortable experience (I didn't have to wear spanx!). Glad I listened to other reviews and ordered a size up- it's tight in the boobs and definitely SHORT. I got so many compliments in this dress and would order again!

Wrong fit
I'm 5'1, 34B, and a size 0 and this dress was way way too big. It didn't fit right anywhere. I would def not recommend this if you are petite.

Runs too large, not a flattering fit
I rented this dress for a company holiday party. Unfortunately, it was too large and I did not end up wearing it. I am typically a 0, but this dress ran large, as I found with another Roberto Rodriguez dress that I rented and could not wear. On the positive side, the dress was great quality and I loved the scalloped hemline. The material is quite thick, so if you are hoping that this dress with make you look slimmer, I am afraid that it may not do the trick. Would probably recommend ordering a size smaller as your backup size.

It wasn't that great.
The dress was bulky and thick. I didn't feel sexy and it was too big even though I have always and forever will be a 4.

Overall, the dress was great. I got so many compliments and many people asked where I found it!
I wore this dress to senior prom last year. I went with my friend Josh. I'm a pretty small person, so I feel like a 00 would have been better for me just because the dress was a little looser than I'm used to. Even though it wasn't super tight, it still showed my body shape (if you look closely in the picture you will see, some woman was wearing black behind me so its hard to see that.) It's a simple, yet classy black dress and I really do feel like its perfect for any occasion that you need it for!

Beautiful Dress, but runs large.
I rented this dress as a back-up. Didn't end up wearing it to the event I rented it for, however I really liked it, so I wore it out to dinner the following night. The detail in the dress is beautiful. It's hard to see in pictures, but is really pretty in person. My only complaint is that it runs fairly large. I usually wear a small, or a size 4....so i rented a 4 and 6. I ended up wearing the 4, but it was still a little big in the back and midsection. i was also worried it was going to be too short, however since I'm pretty short the length was great! Id recommend getting your size and one smaller just to be safe.

Too large around waist
I'm petite, I couldn't tell if someone squeezed into the wrong size and stretched it or that's how it comes. Great length, I'm short. The pattern was unique. Killed me it wasn't more figure flattering.

Texture!
This personally didn't compliment me well - need a belt or the smaller size since it made me look very square. I would get it in a smaller size or wear a cute belt with it.

Short and cute
This is a short dress I am only 5 foot 4 and it as short on me. It is a cute dress my on,y problem is that though it fit my chest and hips fine it was quite large is the waist. There was a lot of extra material there that I felt added bulk. Maybe if I was smaller chested I could have gone down a size

Definitely order a size up, I'm usually a 2 but the 4 was far better. If you have hips and boobs, this will likely be a bit baggy in the waist area, as it was for me, however it wasn't so much so that I couldn't wear it. Would be great for those gals out there with a more boyish figure or less of a waist. Overall, super comfortable (the inside is a sort of sweatshirt material), however had it been my own I would have had the waist tailored to nip in a bit.

I wore this dress to New Year Eve dinner. It was a gorgeous dress, but fit snuggly in the hips even though Im not a curvy woman. So you may want to consider going up a size. The dress rode up quite a bit at the dinner table, so it may be better suited for a function where you are standing most of the night.

I wore this dress to dinner right after my fiance proposed in November. It is short and there isn't a lot of give in the hips, but I really liked the material, especially for colder weather. I'm so glad I had this dress to show off at dinner with my beautiful ring!

Great dress, and perfect for the upscale wedding I attended. The scallop detail is absolutely beautiful! The lining is so comfortable, a sweater type material. The chiffon scallops are perfect for that dressy occasion. I am normally between a 2 or 4 and always end up wearing the 2 dress, but I wore the 4 in this one and probably could have worn a 6 if I ordered it. I would have been more comfortable with the extra length, since it is a mini dress, but there is a little give with the stretchy sweater type lining.

Best look!
I absolutely love this dress. The detailing is so pretty and the inner jersey material makes it very comfortable. I wore it to a my 10 year reunion and really rocked it in this dress. I wore it with black nylons and shoes with sparkly earrings and simple tennis bracelet. I had bright red lipstick on. My husband advised me to not wear a long necklace so I could "let the dress do the talking". He said it was the best I have ever looked! My measurements are B36, W34, H39 and the 6 fit me like a glove. I'm usually in between a 4 and 6 depending on the designer.

short, but great with tights!
Because I'm a bit on the tall side, this dress was a teeny bit shorter than I am used to, but I was comfortable with it once I combined it with opaque tights. I could get into the 6, and it definitely fit better in the waist and was a little more flattering, but was tighter around the hips and rode up more, making it even shorter on me. So I wore the 8 and it had a bit of room in the waist, which was fine as we went out for a huge dinner for NYE and I wanted room to eat! I would rent this again, for an event where a short dress was appropriate. This might work better as a general LBD for someone a bit more petite than I am.

Adorable, but way too smalle!!
I ordered this dress for NYE and followed the directions and ordered my backup as one size up (I got a 4 and a 6). Even the 6 was too small! I ended up wearing my backup dress that I ordered, which was a size 4. Instead of ordering one size up in this dress, I would actually go two sizes up! I think I might have been able to get away with the 6, but it was skintight and made me uncomfortable. Thankfully I had the backup.

beautiful
Ordered this as a back-up for NYE but ended up liking this better than the plan A dress. Unfortunately the hips runs small. I have an athletic build and have a butt from squats and soccer. The dress fit well everywhere else. I was able to zip/wear but the fabric bunched weird in the back which made it unwearable. Anyways, if you are able to order a back up size I would def size up. Beautiful dress. Elegant. Classy. Wish I could have worn it. (34C-27-37)

I got to wear an amazing quality dress for a very important career moment!
This was a really nice basic sheath dress that I chose for a formal work event. In person it looked very slimming and the scalloped detailing combined with thicker fabric helped hide body imperfections. My only complaint is that Roberto Rodriguez does not seem to believe in the existence of hips! I typically wear a 6 or 8 in dresses but had to size up to a 10 because the hips were cut so narrow. If you have an hourglass or pear-shaped figure, definitely size up!

Beautiful, Classy Dress
I have rented this dress twice for 2 different weddings and I absolutely love it. I'd love to buy it, in fact. It does run very small - I usually wear a 0-2 and I wore the size 4 in this. So classy, yet still fun!

I ordered a 6 and a 8 in this dress. The six fit but was a little too tight in the hips. I tried the 8 on and it was perfect! This dress is beautiful and the scalloped detailing really made the dress pop. I received compliments all night! I absolutely love RTR and would consider renting this dress again for another occasion! I hated to send it back.

Perfect LBD!
This dress runs a little bit on the smaller side. I am usually a 4-6 in dresses and wore the 8, as it had a little more room than the 6. The 6 was also a little bit on the short side....and I am not a tall person. I got SO many compliments. It goes great with colored jewelry and black pumps. I wore this to a rehearsal dinner. Would rent again!

Got tons of compliments! Great LBD, beautiful details on fabric
I usually wear a 0 but this 0 fit VERY snugly so I ended up wearing the 2. It was pretty short, as in the photo, but that was fine since it has such a high neckline. The fabric details looked great in person and I loved the scalloped hem. Highly recommend!

So Chic
This dress was amazing! The scallop detail was phenomenal. The dress was short but with the high neckline it kept it very elegant and classy for a church wedding ceremony. I paired it with fun heels and got so many compliments, not just that night but also when friends saw pictures. I ordered a 4 and 6 but went with the 6 and belted it because I have a fuller bust and the 4 seemed a little snug.

SO pretty online, but i sent it back
it's so pretty, but I ended up sending it back immediately. It runs a tad small, but it's supposed to be tight. It's very elegant and the length is fine, but once you start to walk/move around it starts riding up really badly. I wouldn't even think about dancing in this dress unless you don't mind constantly yanking on it. Also it's a little bit boxy through the middle section... I kind of looked like a rectangle which defeated the purpose of a tight fitting little black dress. It's so pretty but there are probably other black dresses that would do better!
