Great dress, thicker material which was great in cold weather. Fitted and perfect.
I wore this dress to my fiance's holiday party which was out to dinner and then a night club. The dress was perfect for a more casual dinner followed by a night club. I wore a small because it was a little roomier than the x-small though both fit me well. It hit me about mid thigh and I wore black tights underneath because it was cold outside. It did not ride up at all through out the night. The blue pops out more than on the model in the photo especially in flash photos. It was funky and different. So happy with my choice!

Fun, Unique Dress!
I wore this dress to a friends rehearsal dinner and loved it! It was appropriate yet unique and I felt great in it. The material is really thick, so if you're gonna be dancing all night this might not be the best dress for you. The blue is also way more vibrant than it is in the picture but I liked it more than I thought I would. I would definitely recommend spanx if you're body conscious at all.. this dress hugs every curve you've got!

Great dress for a night on the town.
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.

Backup Dress
This dress was a backup dress sent to me. The material is nice and thick and the color is a bright cobalt blue. I didn't think that the pattern was necessarily very flattering on my body, however. Ended up wearing my first choice anyways.

Wore to see Britney in Vegas!
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!
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.
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.

STYLIST REVIEW
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!

This was my first time renting from rtr and I am beyond obsessed! I received my dress, clutch, and earrings in 24 hours and everything was so perfect. The dress fit perfectly and the accessories just completed the look perfectly. I got so many compliments and felt amazing! I'm so excited for the next wedding just so I can rent another outfit.

This dress accentuated all of my curves. And the material is heavy weight therefore it smooths everything out. I felt glamorous in this dress. I would definitely rent it again.

Beautiful dress! Photos do not do it justice!
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.

A great night with friends!
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.

Just a dress, until you look closer
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 was confident AND comfortable in this little number!
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.

This was my backup for another occasion, but it looked so good I wore it the night before the event!
This dress is much more blue than the picture shows. Very comfortable and cute. I felt it was a little short for the wintertime so I put on black tights under it. But other than that I loved it!

Easy to wear
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.

very different, many compliments
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

Curve flattering and unique dress that stands out at a party
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.

Great vibrant blue in person!
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.

comfortable, classy, and very lovely
I wore this dress to my high school winter ball. The fabric is textured and a little heavy, so if you are planning for a summer event, maybe choose a dress with lighter fabric. The dress fit me perfectly, but when in doubt, go a size up it runs tighter since it is form fitting. That being said, if you are a woman/girl who doesn't want much excess 'body' showing, I would wear spanx or something similar underneath. The dress was quite short although I did not find it a problem since the top was very modest (no prominent cleavage, obviously). The color is more royal blue and is more vibrant in person, but not off putting. I love this dress, it is beautiful and I would love to have it in my closet!

Thicker material was perfect for an evening November Montana wedding.
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.

Perfect party dress for my birthday!
This was a fun and comfortable dress! I received a lot of compliments. I ordered the XS and S which both fit nicely but I ended up wearing the S to give myself more room after the big dinner I knew I was going to have. This dress is curve hugging but the thicker material really holds everything together and looks great!

Felt great for my 30th birthday!
Definitely tight like the other reviews said. It did help wrangle my problem areas a bit, and I felt great even though I don't usually wear dresses like this. Received several compliments and was comfortable. Paired with black heeled booties, dangly gold earrings, a gold bracelet and black clutch. Dress was in good condition, there weer a couple minor pulls on the side near the seam but nothing noticeable at all. The large was a little more relaxed in fit but had big gaps by my armpits so I went with the medium. The fit differences otherwise were barely noticeable. Enjoyed wearing it!
