I felt fabulous in this dress! Fit was great. B/c of the fabric and design, it hides imperfections many women might be concerned about (that mid-section). Worn without a Spanx and still looked great.

The blue is much brighter in person and it was the perfect dress for my law prom--got lots of compliments on it! I usually wear a 4-6 in dresses and ordered a M, which was a little bit tight, but the fabric is thick and it was very form fitting so it wasn't really an issue.

I rented this dress at the RTR store at the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas. Alyssa was my stylist and she was fabulous! I had a blast trying on a bunch of dresses. I wish there were stores all over the country. I never heard of RVN but Alyssa suggested it because it is a very similar fit to Herve Leger, body con. This dress is definitely something different and I didn't see anyone wearing one in Vegas! You get an arm work out because you have to stretch it over your head, haha! I did wear spanx but this dress sucks you in. It's a fairly thick fabric but it was very comfortable and breathable. I have been lucky and loved almost every dress I have rented and this is not disappoint! My favorite dress so far, I love it! I can't wait to rent RVN again!

The perfect dress!

Size worn: XS
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is amazing. First of all, the color is so vibrant and pictures don't do it justice. The ego design keeps it subtle enough for wedding guest attire. The material is veryyy thick which is great for smoothing out your figure and making you feel put together and comfortable enough to move around a lot. It's typically difficult for me to fill dresses out, but this was skin tight and it felt great. If there were any cons at all, that would be in the difficulty to remove the dress haha.. It is extremely challenging to get of but it's still wonderful.

I wore this dress for a graduation party. I love this dress.

Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size

This dress fit perfectly. I ordered a size small and medium. I ended up wearing the medium because the small was a little shorter. Both sizes fit nice although the small was tighter. The dress does ride up a little but nothing I couldn't deal with. DEFINATELY a dress that flatters an hour glass shaped body. Tip: wear seamless underwear or commando.

I loved it! Very tight fit but accentuated my curves! Was a little nervous of the thicker fabric in the summer but it worked out fine and hid any imperfections haha. I was able to dance the night away without it riding up! The other reviews are correct in saying the blue is a lot brighter in real life.

STYLIST REVIEW

Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This dress is the perfect option for a night out on the town! I wore this dress to celebrate my best friend's birthday in NYC and absolutely loved it! It is a thicker material but it did not make me get hot, it hugged my curves and was super comfortable! The picture of the model does not do this dress justice color wise. It appears more of a black dress with a dark blue pattern, but it is actually more royal blue with a black pattern (which I preferred much more!) It rode up a little bit when I walked, but other than that I LOVED the dress!

Beautiful dress! Photos do not do it justice!

Size worn: S
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The dress is definitely one of the tightest fitting I have ever worn. However, the fabric is thick enough that it is pretty forgiving and could be flattering on different body types. It could be dressed up or down for different events. I thought about wearing more jewelry but decided to stick with earrings and a chunky bracelet to avoid taking away from the beautiful pattern in the dress itself.

I LOVED this dress. The material is stretchy and comfortable and SO flattering. I got compliments all night. The only downside is that the dress sort of hikes up when you walk, but I wasn't too bothered by it. Like other reviewers have said, the blue is definitely more cobalt than it appears on the model. I would absolutely rent this again.

Just a dress, until you look closer

Size worn: M
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
From far away it looks like a little black dress, but up close it's really unique! The geometric Hieroglyphics make the dress very modern. It's extremely snug, but sliming. I'm 6 months postpartum and the dress just pulls everything in. I paired with neon shoes and bag.

Great Fit and Great Color!

I ordered this for a 3 year anniversary dinner in Chicago with my boyfriend. The fit was great and the colors really pop in person. The dress is very comfortable and the material hides any imperfections you may have. I have a curvy body, so this dress showed off my assets ;). The only complaint I have is that it tended to ride up every step I took, so I had to pull it down a lot as we were walking to the restaurant. Other than that, I felt like a million bucks :) I also liked that because the dress made a statement on it's own, there wasn't really a need for over the top jewelry, just the basics.

I would have probably ordered a Small for myself, but one wasn't available. The Medium fit great, which was a little bit of a surprise given I usually wear a 4. There's just so much stretch in the fabric it essentially molds to your body no matter what! I second the other reviewer that suggests doing your hair and makeup after you put it on - it's a pullover with no zipper. Consider a blingy bracelet to accessorize.

With the snug fit and thicker material, went with the XS, instead of the S. Was pretty short, but since I'm only 5'0" it was perfect. Dress is much more blue in person.

I rented this dress for my birthday party and I was very happy with this rental. The blue detail is much brighter blue than in the RTR model photo. The fabric on this dress is thick so it hides flaws which is awesome! I ordered a size S and M but never even tried on the medium because the small fit perfect. The dress has a lot of stretch to it so it can fit many different sizes easily.

I loved this dress, it was very appropriate for my school's homecoming. the fabric was thick and tight but not uncomfortable at all. I effortlessly danced all night. the blue is a lot brighter than it appears, but still beautiful. there's no zipper though, thats the only downfall so if you have your hair done already and are trying to get in the dress without messing it up, good luck lol. I wore my dress to the hair salon because I didn't want to mess up my hair

It is a good dress for someone with a lot of curves. I have more of an athletic build with a small bust and narrow hips and so it did not look as great on me as I had hoped. It is a really nice thick material so it hides a lot of imperfections which is great!

This dress runs true to size, although a bit snug. However, the fabric is thick and very forgiving. The tribal design is also very slimming. The arm holes were a bit large on me, but I tend to have this problem with most dresses. Overall, this dress was a hit, and I received compliments all night!

The dress fit like a glove. It hugged in all the right places. The dress is made of a thicker fabric so it will keep you warm for a winter party. While dancing I had to pull the dress down sometimes, but that's normal I guess for me. Overall a great dress. I received many compliments.

I probably could've worn the XS but I put the small on first and didn't want to ruin my hair by changing. It fit great regardless and looked nice with black tights for a winter party. The color is much more blue than it looks on the model and the pattern is very flattering. It was comfortable and did not get stretched out over the course of the night.
