Stylist Notes

This Robert Rodriguez Black Label gown is subtle elegance with a twist (literally!) A small twisted dip at the bust line gives it that fab bit of edge.....add some bling like the Chamak's Arabian Nights Bangle Set to really shine your way through the evening affair.

This dress was in good shape when it arrived, and I liked the style. However, I would suggest ordering a size down because it was too big on me in a size 6, which is what I almost always wear.

I ordered a size 4 as my backup dress, and while I didn't end up wearing it, it was still a great dress. I just felt this was a little too low cut for a formal, conservative wedding. However, it was very sexy and showed off curves in all the right places. I wish I had another event where I could wear it! There is a little bit of a train, so would not be good for an outdoor function. I'm a D cup and still didn't quite fill it out on top, but I think a little tape would keep everything in check.

This dress wasnt my first choice but when I wore it to my boyfriends Military ball, It looked so elegant. I requested a size 4, I should have asked for a size 2. Got many compliments, just order a size down.

This dress was perfect for a black-tie gala. It is true that it runs large, I ended up wearing the 2 instead of 4. The length was perfect (I'm 5'4) with a 2-3" heel, but with any larger of a heel it would have been too short. The color was great and I received tons of compliments.

This was my back up dress, I didn't wear it though. The dress is beautiful, but a very thin material. I am 5'6 120 Lbs, 0R was a bit loose and short, 0L was still a bit loose but a good length with 3 1/2" heels. The front v neck is incredibly low as well, you will most likely need some double sided tape if you don't want to risk a Janet Jackson moment!

Beware big chested gals :)

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I am 5'4", 126 lbs usually wear a 4 or 6 with 34D bust and had a difficult time getting the "girls" in the dress. The dresss does have a very low cut V in the front and shows a lot of cleavage. None of the bras I own could hide under this dress until a bought a VS U-plunge bra. With this bra and some double-sided tape I managed to keep them mostly covered. Despite all of this, my boyfriend absolutely loved the dress. Wore it to a military ball. Ended up wearing the 4R, it was a big long even with 4" heels, but I believe it added to the elegance factor. So if you are not comfortable showing major cleavage beware. :)

out!! I loved this dress, definitely runs big. the fashion tape didn't last so I had to make sure I didn't have a wardrobe malfunction. A stylist picked this dress for me after they didn't have what I originally chose and ordered. It was kind of a fiasco, but rtr was awesome about making it up to me and helping me find this dress that I wouldn't have chose from the pic. it looks great on!!

This dress is so beautiful! I wore it to The Marine Corps Ball. It's a bit more purple then it shows in the picture. But still, really elegant, it hit the tops of my feet and it has a small train in the back. Might want to wear it without a bra, especially if you are large busted because it has a very deep v (center of ribs on me).

Classy

Size worn: 2L
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
The gray is more flattering in person, and the train at the end of the gown definitely adds some punch. I would go a size smaller- I did okay with the 2 L (my usual size) but it was large in the bust area. If you have curves, watch out, the neckline is LOW. I wore it for a work function and had to be conscious of keeping my posture perfect. Glad I used the fashion tape!

Beautiful dress

Size worn: 0R
Overall fit: Large

This dress is really pretty. I'm 5'1" and the 0R fit length-wise, but the neck dips REALLY low. I had to use a good amount of double-sided tape to keep it from showing pretty much my entire bra. Otherwise, very happy with this rental and would highly recommend it.

Gorgeous & flattering

Size worn: 0R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress for a wedding & received many compliments! I agree with other reviewers' suggestions to use (and bring extra!) fashion tape to keep your bra from making a guest appearance all night. I wore one of the Victoria's Secret Very Sexy bras and it was low enough to not be seen. Overall Fit is very flattering - the twist in the tummy area will ensure you can actually eat & still look great. Usually I wear a 2, but here I wore a 0, so definitely choose a size down for your backup size. The color was a beautiful gray - pretty true to the color you see here. The back is very smooth so make sure you have some Spanx ;)

Comfortable, low-key glamour

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wore this for a gala and it was really comfortable. I think it was very flattering but definitely recommend wearing Spanx with it for a smooth rear view. The back of the dress has a tiny bit of a train, so even with the regular length and in heels it was dragging a little. The backup 2R I ordered didn't drag, but was a bit too tight for my comfort. The neckline is low and I'm pretty busty but with the help of some double-sided tape, you weren't able to see anything you shouldn't. :) I would recommend this dress!

Size worn: 6L
Overall fit: Small

I loved this dress and got so many compliments! I would suggest ordering a size up and I also had to wear flats because it came to an awkward length in heels (I'm 5'9). The color is beautiful, the material is comfortable, and my cleavage looked amazing. However, that being said youll need some fashion tape and no bra so sticky boobs or petals.

Finding a dress that complimented my body!

Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress for a formal wedding. Cons: At 5'5, the dress was a little short in most heels that I like to wear, so I only wore 2 inch heels. The dress was loose in the back for me, but fit great everywhere else. The double sided tape did not hold for me, so I ended up safety pinning the front of the dress due to the very low V neck (when I sat down, it was way too low for my full chest). Pros: Dress was super comfy, flattering, and I received a lot of compliments throughout the night! The small train added an extra degree of elegance. The color was beautiful. I was able to wear the dress with a regular bra, even with the low V. I would definitely recommend this dress as long as you are ok with a plunging neckline and/or wear fashion tape/a safety pin! If I could go back and pick again, I would still choose this dress!

I was a little nervous about my first time renting a RTR dress, but everything went smoothly -- The dress arrived on time, was clean and in great condition, and even came with double-sided tape, a little makeup bag and some freebies! I will definitely be renting many more dresses in the future.

Size worn: 0L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress is beautiful and sophisticated, I received lots of compliments. It runs short, I am 5'4" and even the 0L was too short--I had to wear very small heels and the dress came over an inch off the floor. Definitely go for the long length if you're over 5'3". And buy some extra double-sided tape, you definitely need it with this dress. I wore the dress to a Military Dining Out event, and felt I needed to be a little more modest and tape the dress in so it didn't have such a deep V, which worked out just fine. Just a warning, the dress pulls fairly tight across the lower thigh area. I don't have much of a shape there, but the fabric still pulled and bunched up a little if I didn't stand with one foot in front of the other! You can even see that pull a little in the model photo. All in all, I was extremely pleased with the dress and was really sad putting it into the mailbox to send back!

I rented this to wear on a date, but I'm not sure what others were talking about that it ran short--I'm 5'2", and even with 5" heels it was dragging on the ground, so bad that I couldn't wear it out. But if you are a taller lady, then LUCKY YOU because this dress is so gorgeous and flattering! The jersey is thick and lined, and it doesn't cling to every lump and bump (although shapewear is definitely recommended). I didn't want to take it off because it was so pretty, but I'm too short for it.

I wore this to a Black Tie wedding, this was actually meant to be my back up dress but when I put it on I just knew that I had to wear it. The regular length was perfect! The train was a little long but strap on some heels and you'll be good to go. I was one of the few ladies, not tripping over or holding up my dress when I walked. Definitely use some fashion tape, the deep V of this dress is lovely but not very forgiving if you are wearing a regular bra underneath. The color was very true to the photos and paired very well with black accessories. Definitely invest in some shapewear if you are a little curvy, this dress will show your underwear lines!

I wore the dress for a black tie party and it truly fit the bill. It's a classic dress that looks stunning once it's on. The only difficulty I had was with the length of the gown - I'm 5' 4" and even with heels I (and others) kept stepping ont he bottom. Unfortunately, that comes with the territory when renting longer gowns! PS - I have lost a little weight since wearing this dress. I went with an 8 at the time (and I probably weighed ten of fifteen pounds more) and it fit well.

I rented this as a bridesmaid dress for a friend's wedding this fall. The fit was fantastic and it felt great on. It is very low cut. I wore a plunge bra and used double sided tape to keep it modest enough to wear in a church! I received so many compliments on it and it was awesome to be able to drop it in the mail the day after the wedding and not be stuck with another bridesmaid dress I won't wear again :-)

This dress was originally my RTR backup, but fit even better than the dress I had planned on wearing. I wore the 4R with with 3 inch heels and the length was perfect. It is definitely low cut, but with a U-plunge bra from victoria's secret and some of the fashion tape that came with the dress it stayed in place perfectly. The color is gorgeous, and it's the perfect dress for a statement necklace. I feel comfortable and glamorous all night!

Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: True to Size

I ordered the 8L and the 6L and for some reason the 8L was shorter than the 6! So I wore one inch heels with the 6 and it worked out fine. The dress has a very deep V, I had to keep like tucking in my boobs back in all night so it will probably work better for one with smaller boobs. Overall, it was a nice dress that got the job done!

The fit was true to size, but I should have worn a low-cut bra (hence the white showing in the photo). However, I still felt great in the dress and no one noticed the peeking bra. The dress arrived in great shape and looked new. This was my first full RTR experience and I plan to rent again!

The fit of the dress was snug in the chest area, I wasn't able to wear the dress unfortunately because I ordered it as a back up and its wasn't comfort for the all day event I was attending. I think if I had another size up, I may have enjoyed it better.

Beautiful, but not too flashy! The perfect MOH dress!

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This was one of the most beautiful days of my life. I saw my best friend marry her soulmate in one of the most gorgeous places in the world and I felt stunning in my RTR dress. The bride and I decided that all the bridesmaids would wear grey dresses in different shades and styles because we knew they would all look good together. It worked out perfectly. Everyone got to express their style and the photos came out great. This dress was actually my back-up but as soon as I felt the material I was sold on it. Also, it didn't hurt that it looked awesome with the beautiful handmade necklace the bride's grandmother made for me. The dress fit perfectly (I did wear Spanx, just to make sure everything was 100% smooth). It's a little low cut in the front, but I didn't feel like I was busting out. Also, if you are hippier than a size 0 model, you may feel like the ruching attracts attention to your curves, so make sure you're confident in that area. it was the perfect length with the cowboy boots we all wore, but if you're shorter than me make sure you wear those big girl heels! I was comfortable all night, dancing, running around making sure the bride had everything she needed, and being a cliche by sneaking off for a moonlight stroll with the Best Man. Hey-o! This dress made me a RTR believer. I will definitely be finding another MOH dress for my sister's wedding in June.

I rented this dress for a formal work party. Out of the choices I had picked, my better half liked this one best. I was really nervous about the dress since the only available size was a 0L and I am barely 5'2". Upon receiving the dress, I immediately tried it on and was flabbergasted- the bottom off the dress came up to my ankles! I double checked the tag and yep, it was a long. I ended up not wearing it and the RTR reps were great dealing with my return.
