It was a perfect little black dress, although it is a sheath -- it runs HUGE! but it still looked great!

This dress is very flattering and would seem to appeal to many shapes and sizes.
I felt very good in this dress. It fit appropriately and was perfect for me to wear to an evening work event for my husband. My only complaint was that some of the lace was pulled and had created pilling and snagging on the dress. It had arrived that way, so it seems that the particular dress I wore had just seen better days and is maybe nearing retirement. 😬 Jewelry can snag easily against the material, especially when putting it on and taking it off. That being said, I would definitely rent it again and my husband wished I could buy it!

Great first experience
It was my first time using RTR. I got it on time and there were no issues at all with the delivery. I wore the dress for a January wedding and I got a lot of compliments on the dress. I ended up wearing the 10 instead of the 8 bc of the skirt length. I am on 5'5" and thought the size 8 was too short. Also, I have a larger chest so I was able to felt more comfortable in the 10.

I got a ton of compliments on the dress! Very wedding appropriate.
Being a shift dress, I knew it would run rather large. It still was flattering and was very appropriate for a winter wedding. The slip fit well, it wasn't too clingy so it never rode up. I'm 5'-2", and it was the perfect length. On a taller person, it may be a bit short.

Not flattering (on me at least)
I rented this for New Years' Eve but did not end up wearing it because I felt like it made me look like I had a large tummy area (which I don't) and no chest at all - it just did not show off any of my good features and seemed to highlight the bad ones. This dress would probably look best on someone a little bustier - just didn't fit my body type well.

Great first RTR experiencei
Many compliments on the dress! I am petite, and it ran slightly large for my frame- although I know this is the style. I still went with it and felt confident all night! Great first experience with RTR, so easy to rent, wear and return! Will make sure to read reviews more closely next time for sizing!

OK dress, not as flattering or fancy as I had hoped
I rented this dress to wear on NYE. I'm a true 6/8 - half the time the six fits, half the time the eight does. Only the 8 was in stock, so I took a chance as a lot of the reviews said that the dress was a little tight in the arms and bust. I'm small, but have a big bust and big hips...you know how it goes. Anyway, this dress came early and I tried it on. Not the perfect NYE dress for me. It was a little baggy and just didn't give off the WOW look I wanted for NYE. I had another house party that night so I decided to belt it and wear it out. I'm glad I did. It looked cute with the belt. I started to wonder if the six might have given me more shape and been a better overall fit. The dress is very pretty and super comfortable, but probably not the best "special occasion" outfit...at least for me.

Perfect "cocktail attire" for my company Christmas party.
I needed a cocktail dress that was also conservative enough for my company Christmas party. This dress was perfect for that. I'm only 5'2, so it wasn't nearly as short on me as it is on the model. Keep in mind that it is a shift dress - It's not form fitting. I'm busty, so the size 2 barely fit me around the chest, but it was quite loose around the torso. It was comfortable, flattering and easy to move around in. I'd definitely recommend this dress.

I loved the ease of renting from RTR!! Always a great experience!
What an elegant, classy little black dress! This was perfect for my event! I love the simple sheath style and the fact that it was a great length for me. I'm only 5'1" so it's difficult to find a dress that's a good fit for petites. Even my husband loved it! Will definitely rent again!

This dress was super cute and comfortable! I thought it was a little big, I wish had a 2 just to see the difference. But overall great dress. I wore it to and upscale NYC party and it was perfect.

quite short
i rented this and another dress for a december wedding. like other reviewers have said, i found the dress pretty short. i thought that, since i was 5'5" i could get away with it but i couldn't pull it off. the size 6 fit me but for it to have looked like a shift dress, i probably should have ordered the 8. the 6 was a little form-fitting

Work appropriate dress, but runs large
The other reviews are very true. This dress is a sheath and it runs large, so it's pretty shapeless. Make sure you have a black belt on hand if you're going to order it. Otherwise, it was a very nice, conservative dress for my work holiday party.

The dress was absolutely gorgeous for a holiday party! I received a lot of compliments.
The dress was beautiful for a company holiday party! I ordered a 0 and 2. Even though I have a smaller chest and bust the zero was uncomfortably small in the arms and shoulder area but I perfect fit on the rest of the body. I ended up wearing the 2 because of comfort but it looked a little big in my torso and back. With nice high heels it ended up looking okay but there was definitely some extra material in places where it should have been more fitted. I still would recommend the dress, it looked really pretty and received a lot of compliments.

Runs big
I rented this dress for a holiday cocktail party and based on other reviews knew to size down. I'm typically a 2, but sometimes a 4. I ordered a 0 and a 2. Both fit and would have been fine to wear. I wore the 2 just to give me a little extra length (but not much!), the 0 fit better overall but I wanted the length. This dress is short but fine as long as you keep your arms down and don't bend over. The arms on this dress are a bit tight - it wasn't a problem for me but I could see some girls having an issue there. This dress is not form fitting no matter how much you size down. It hints at your shape but doesn't hug curves. I think this dress is better suited to curvy girls with bigger busts. I didn't have much of a shape in this dress. Overall I liked this dress and thought it was very pretty, but I don't know that I would rent it again. I like something with a little more shape to it.

Beautiful dress!
This dress was stunning in person. I rented it for a ball (which I didn't attend), but instead wore it to a botanical garden. I got so many compliments, and it made me feel beautiful. There are two cons to this dress. The first, this dress (and the backup) both looked worn on the bottom - there were some strings that were snagged and loose. The second, this dress does not have much give at the top, so if you are busty, I'd recommend sizing up. I'm usually a size 4, so as per other reviews, I sized up, and I'm so glad I did because even though it was very loose bust down, it fit my bust and shoulders.

Comfortable and Pretty!
This dress runs very big. I usually wear a size 4 and found even the 2 to be a bit large. The size 0 wasn't tight, but fit awkward in some places, so I stuck with the 2. I wore it to a college alumni Christmas party and received tons of compliments. It was super comfortable and the lace detail is very pretty.

Great dress, love the lace.
I loved this dress and wore it to my work Christmas party and got lots of compliments. Since it is a shift dress, it was a little baggy in the waist, but adding a skinny, black belt around the waist gives it some shape. The only complaint is that my dress arrived a day later than I wanted, so I cut it very close wearing it to the party. It came the day of the party in the afternoon, and I had hoped it would have arrived the day prior. Other than that, it was a great dress, I highly recommend.

Everyone will tell you, "You look great!"
This dress was classy and fun to wear! I actually wore it to two different parties. Once with leggings and knee high boots and the following was with tights and heels. I had read the dress runs short. I am 5'2, so that was not a problem for me. Once again, a RTR success!

So pretty and fits great!
I just had a baby 9 months ago, so finding a dress that fits well and looks good can be a hassle. This dress was perfect. I got a million compliments, and felt like a million bucks in it. I usually wear a 6, but I ended up wearing the 4 instead. Perfect dress for a winter wedding, and very comfortable. Easy to dance in too!

Wore this to a nursing gala.
Dress arrived on time, and looked great! One of the 2 smelled pretty strongly of perfume when I took it out of the box, but 24 hours on the hanger fixed it. It's hard to find "regular" dresses for a 5'0" frame, but this one looked and felt great!

wore this dress to my company's formal party on a boat.
i'm short and broad across the chest/shoulders/upper-arms. i got a size up so that it would fit comfortably across my upper body, and i'm glad i did that. also, i wore a red belt to help define my waist - as the dress just hangs. and since i'm short, the dress fell slightly above my knees - which was perfect.

This dress was perfect for a cocktail party fundraiser.
What a great dress! The lace is beautiful and non-itchy. The shift is just loose enough to not worry about how many appetizers you eat without being a tent. I could see this being a little short for tall ladies since the slip was just right for me at 5'2".

Lots of compliments. I would rent it again!
I ordered a size 8 and 6. I usually wear a size 8, sometimes a 6. The 8 was big and the 6 was a little big as well. I probably could've fit in a 4. It stretched throughout the night. Very comfortable though. I would rent this again. I got a lot of compliments on the dress.

Great cocktail dress!
The dress was a little short. It was okay when standing but when I sat it really went up. The dress fit well in the chest and hips but was loose through the waist so I'm afraid if I had gone up a size it would have been really big there, although the length might have been a bit better. I got lots of compliments on it and really enjoyed wearing it.

Love RTR, second time using RTR, so convenient!
I am usually a size 4, I wore the size 6 since it was a tad bit longer and I knew I'd be dancing all night. There is also a liner underneath the last that is gold and on the size 4 it was inside out and I could not turn it right side out without risking ripping wear it attaches to the lace. So I wore the 6.

Great, classy dress for fall/winter wedding.
Fit true to size, slightly on the larger side. Ordered 2 and 4, went with the 2. Not as "yellow/gold" as it appears in the picture, more neutral/beige. Very comfortable - not too tight/loose. Received compliments throughout the night. Perfect dress if you don't want to stand out all too much but still want to look great :)

Another RTR Win!
Loved this dress for an autumn wedding. It's a shift dress so definitely size down if you don't want to feel like you're wearing a tent. The 4 was too big (and I often can't zip size 6 dresses because of bust/wide rib cages) but I was happy with the 2. A 0 may have given me more shape through the body, but the beauty of the shift is to eat all you want and not worry about it ;)

Not as baggy as some shifts I have tried in the past... Actually shows off a little bit of shape. Got lots of compliments! Easy to accessorize. I thought it ran a little short.. Fine with me but I'm 5'4" so may be really short if you are taller.

The ease of using RTRW and being able to rent a designer dress for the night for a fraction of the cost is very appealing. Will definitely use RTRW for weddings or events. The dress does run big so be sure to go down a size when ordering.

Super flattering and comfortable. Loved this dress.
I am between a 4 and 6 usually so I got both sizes. The 4 fit fine and was more flattering than the 6 a I think a slightly more snug fit looks better with this dress given the cut. Dress was easy to wear and very comfortable. Received several compliments. Would love to own it - very versatile! It was a fine length on me but I'm only 5'3. Might be a tad short on taller ladies.

Beautiful dress and I ordered 2 so the garment bag it arrived it was great for traveling with.
The dress was beautiful and I loved it. I usually wear an 8 but wore a 6. The stomach was giving so it was nice to not have it be too tight.
