The dress is lovely with nice detailing, but did absolutely nothing for me because of the stiffness in the material. Between the dress length (it hit just above my knees) and high neckline, it was too frumpy a look - returned it without wearing :(

Pretty dress, but awkward fit. Very boxy shape which was not all that flattering to my tall, skinny, straight figure. I'm sure it looks beautiful on a more curvy figure though.

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 loved this dress almost as much in person as I did in the pictures. For clarity's sake, my measurements are 33 1/2" bust, 26" waist, 37" hips and a size 4 fit me best. It was a little snug in the hips and bust, but not by any means uncomfortable. The waist oddly fit perfectly in the front but was baggy in the back. I almost didn't wear it because of this, but my friends convinced me it was flattering and I'm so glad they did. I got tons of compliments all night and ended up being very happy with it! It was a tad short, especially for dancing, for the conservative country club the event was at - but that doesn't bother me :)

Perhaps I'm just not used to my new body after losing a lot of weight, but I would say the dress runs pretty TTS! I have a new 27" waist but still have a pair of hips, and the size 6 lightly hugged my curves, and showed enough leg to balance the high neckline (for reference, I'm a rapidly shrinking 34C). The scalloping is really lovely and demure, the kind of thing that speaks volumes about the person who is wearing the dress, but I do wish the zipper was hidden. It was a great choice for salsa dancing, paired with red lipstick, hair extensions, and knock out stilettos. I would definitely consider renting this dress again.

I chose this dress as a backup dress and ended up wearing it to my senior prom. I loved it! It was comfortable to dance in, though it is a little tight in the hip area. Because of this, the rest of the dress looks to be a little bigger. The scalloping on the dress looks very expensive and it definitely looks like a designer dress. I definitely recommend renting this one!

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.

This is a really great dress. A bit snug, but between the 2 and the 4, I was happy with my options for fit. As a petite person, the length was good. The fabric is a bit more 3D than expected but still very classy. I would definitely rent it again!

Wore this dress for a friends birthday dinner. The dress is very form fitting, but flattering. It was short/mid-lengh but worked for me because I'm pretty short. Great dress, I loved the detailing!

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!

Now I want to buy this dress!
The scalloping detail is great extra texture on an otherwise straightforward little black dress. The material is quite thick which gave the dress nice structure. I'm a 34D, so sometimes shift dresses can make me look like a tent but the thicker material and fitting of the dress at the waist made me look and feel fantastic. The dress is on the shorter side, but didn't ride up while I was dancing. I wish I still lived in New York so I could come to the sample sale and buy this dress!

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!

Special LBD
I loved this dress because it's a classic LBD but also unique. The dress was longer on me than on the model, but I'm only 5'4''. I also had to wear a belt because I found the shape rather unflattering on it's own.

Perfect black dress
Rented this for a wedding and was a little nervous about how short it was going to be. Once I got it, reaized it was the same lenght as in the picture and loved it. The "quilting" on it was so pretty and also not as heavy as I was expecting from the other reviews (wore it in June and wasn't hot)!! Everyone told me how much they loved it. Would rent again!

Hi Jessica, I have an identical body to you based on your description but I'm concerned because everyone says to size up this dress. Was the 4 a perfect fit or would you have been able to wear a 6, as well? I usually wear a 4 in shorts and am a small on most occasions. Thank you!
RTRAugust 29, 2012
Hi Mana! This dress runs true to size, so I would suggest ordering a size 4, but also getting a size 6 for back-up!

All my friends could not stop telling me how they wanted to borrow the dress- they loved it!
I attend a college in the south and football games are a BIG deal. Everyone dresses up to the nines in their cutest sundresses. This dress was perfect for that day-to-night transition. I was able to wear it as a sundress during the day, and dress it up with fun accessories and heels for the night. The detailing on the dress is gorgeous as well, so minimal accessories are actually needed. My only complaint is that it was a little short- I'm 5'10 and it JUST made the cut of being long enough to wear out. I would definitely recommend this dress for any event!

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.

ABSOLUTE PERFECT DRESS FOR A NIGHT OUT
I loved the way this dress fit. I wore this dress out to a party one weekend at school. I paired it with tights and pumps. I felt that the dress was very slimming and it was extremely comfortable. I received numerous comments during my night out and would highly recommend this dress! It can be dressed down for a casual occasion, or dress up for a more dressy affair.

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.

The dress looked great and it couldn't have been easier to rent!
The dress definitely fit true to size. It's very form-fitting, but it's still tasteful enough to wear to more conservative functions if need be. My event (a political fundraiser) was in the winter, so I paired the dress with black tights, and I got tons of compliments! I would definitely rent this dress again.

Simply gorgeous!
The dress is BEAUTFIFUL! Unfortunately, I didn't wear it because it was too big. Trying it on though, I could tell the right size would have made me look slim in the waist (which is what I always go for!) and super comfortable. Length wise, it was an inch below my fingertips. Wish I ordered the correct size!

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.

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!

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!
