Very flattering dress!
The dress is very snug but it's a thick material so you don't see any lines through it from undergarments. The pattern on the dress helped hide my 'problem areas'. It's very comfortable for being snug and doesn't ride up. I got a lot of compliments!

This was SO comfortable for an all day wedding. It looked amazing and I got so many compliments
The dress doesn't have a zipper so it's a little tight going over your head. The medium fit but the large felt more comfortable and I wanted it to be a little longer. I loved this dress and both my hubs and I were surprised how many compliments I received.

This dress makes you look good in all the right places!
I loved this dress! I got this dress for my 25th birthday in Vegas and it was perfect. Comfortable, slimming, and sexy! My only con is how hard it is to get on and off because it is such a tight dress. Overall, great experience for my first rental and I can't wait to rent again!

Great dress!!
This dress was perfect for my friend's bachelorette! It was comfortable and didn't ride up. Everyone loved it, got so many compliments on the texture of the dress. Loved pairing it with a colorful necklace too!

Made my NYE extra glamorous as always with RTR!
The dress was much more clingy than anticipated, but a strong, sturdy material really just sucked everything into place. When I had to walk for a bit, it would ride up slightly, but I'm all legs so that isn't uncommon for a dress like that.

This dress made my 40th birthday party memorable!!
No need to wear Spanx because the material acts a a compression garment. The thick material was perfect for a cold January night out. The dress highlights your curves in all the right places, and I received numerous compliments. I will definitely rent this or any other RVN dress in the future.

This dress was hands down incredible. I got a million compliments!
Yes, this dress is SNUG! but with that being said, it is in fact true to size. It didn't cut into my arms or legs and hugged my body in all the right places. It's a perfect length and doesn't ride up at all when you walk. The texture makes it very unique and it doesn't need a lot of accessories to make it look amazing. I would recommend doing your hair after you put it on since it is a tight fit pulling it over. I was so thrilled with this dress!

Gorgeous dress that accentuated my curves and showed off the right amount of leg for the VMAs!
This dress is very form fitting but not uncomfortable at all, and if you're walking a lot it can ride up slightly given the stretchy nature of the fabric. The pattern is textural and the dress fabric is 'thick' enough to smooth out your silhouette. I loved the fit, the pattern and the whole overall look - it was the perfect dress to keep it classy but with a little edge/sexiness for the MTV VMAs in Brooklyn!

I wear a 34D but I am typically an 8 in a dress...do you think a Large in this dress would be baggy or would you say going up from a medium would work for a size larger then you ?
ElisaAugust 28, 2013
@AMC If you typically wear an 8, I would go for the large, with the type of fabric this dress is made out of, I don't think it could ever really fit "baggy" and you'll appreciate the little bit of extra room to move vs. feel self conscious it's too tight or riding up - enjoy it!

Cute but runs VERY small
This dress is so cute but runs extremely small. I rented the small and could barely get it over my head - I am typically a size 2. I would size up if you rent this, maybe even go two sizes up for your backup. Was very sad that it didn't work out.

.
I wasn't a fan of how this dress fit. The material is very thick and the high neckline and full coverage shoulder area did not look super flattering on me. I ended up not wearing the dress out but I'd received a coupon from RTR so I was fine with it. I think the dress would work better on someone who has a smaller back/shoulder area.

Sexy, Slimming, and Sophisticated!
I wore this dress for NYE 2014 and it was quite the head turner! I recieved so many compliments! The RVN Reptile Dress runs small. Upon taking it out of the RTR bag, i was a little concerned that it wouldn't fit. It has a ton of stretch and I was able to squeeze into an XS. Although its tight, it's not short at all. I am about 5' 4" and it hit above the knee to make it classy and not slutty. It was also so slimming! I felt like a star!

Beware of the top :(
The fabric was very nice, thicker than what I was expecting - almost a quilted look although the whole dress was the same, stretchy material. I was disappointed at how tight the chest was - it made an unfortunate, giant, uni-boob. My size 2 roommate (32 b) tried the dress on as well and it made her look completely flat on top. The thick fabric looked great on curves through the hips, but maybe a size up could have helped the top? I really wanted this to work... alas :/

Too small but such a cute dress
I normally wear an 8 or 10, but this dress was too small, even in the large. The dress was gorgeous. The material was nice and the pattern really interesting. It just was too tight and unflattering on my backside, and was so tight around the shoulders and upper body that I was feeling crushed. It looked very good on lots of other girls though, so really it's just not for someone with large hips/butt. Wish it had worked.

Great dress but is very tight. I ordered the XS and S and ended up wearing the small.

Wore to a wedding. Very fun print!
As other reviewers commented, this dress is REALLY tight! Like a full body spanx! It was also pretty short on me and that felt a little uncomfortable for a wedding. I would probably like it better for a different occasion and if I lost 10-15 pounds. Ha!

Loved this dress! Got so many compliments and felt confident and happy all night. :) The fabric is really cool and thick so it smooths in all the right places. I wore the larger size (M) because it was ridiculously hard to get over my head. Totally recommend!

Fun, flattering dress - perfect for a night out with the girls in Las Vegas!
Based on the other reviews, I sized up to a medium and I'm so glad I did. The fit of the dress is stretchy and tight. The fabric is thick, which helps to hide any rolls or problems areas. My only complaint is that it flattened my chest quite a bit, even with a bra on.

Meow!
I wore this dress to Valentine's dinner and I loved it! It is a very elastic, "strechy" material so I would order a size up. It hugs in all the right places. The pattern was so fun! I feared the dress would ride up and it never did. I would rent this again.

Sexy little black and white number for a hot date
i picked this dress on a whim because I loved the detail and the texture of the fabric. On the whole, it was a really great dress and I got tons of compliments on it. My only "complaint" (which is based solely on personal preference/comfort level and is not necessarily a fault of the dress) is that it was so form fitting I felt like it showed every little thing and I was afraid to eat or drink very much. Definitely sexy, just wish in hindsight I had worn spanx or something underneath for a little extra tightening. The fabric though, is thicker than you might expect and did a decent job of keeping my stomach and hips looking smooth. I wore the small but perhaps a medium would have fit more loosely and been a little more comfortable for me.

Sent as a last minute backup... didn't love the dress, but amazing customer service.
This dress was selected by customer service as a last minute backup after my original dress was returned damaged. Unfortunately, this was just not the style dress I was going for. I did, however, try it on hoping I'd feel different once it was on. The material was extremely heavy (not great for my Vegas event). It also felt very tight at the top. Customer service was absolutely amazing and sent me several styles to chose from once I explained the look I was going for. After trading a few emails, they had another dress sent to me overnight. The final dress was perfect. Customer service definitely removed any fears I had about renting in the future. Love RTR!!

I rented this for my boyfriend's black and white formal and loved it! It was very form-fitting, but the detailing covered up all imperfections, meaning I didn't have to wear spans like I thought. Everyone absolutely loved it and it photographed well

Wore this for my bachelorette and totally rocked it. Loved the reptile print and it was super flattering and form fitting. It was a bit too thick... and I got pretty hot in it but loved that I didn't have to wear spanx!

Didn't get to wear the dress.
This dress fits like glove; however, the material is rather thick! So although its sleeveless, it seems it would be more appropriate for fall / winter rather than a summer wedding.

Was nervous but ended up liking it!
I had this dress over nighted after my first option didn't work out. It is VERY form fitting which is normally ok for me. It rode up just a little bit but I wore the large for a tiny bit extra length. Over all the dress was a hit! I got lots of compliments and I love the necklace that the stylist sent to go with it.

SUPER TIGHT
This dress was extremely fitted. The material is thicker so it hides any imperfections. Also, very stretchy so I didn’t feel like I was too constricted in the dress. Fun pattern and high neck, cap sleeve makes up for the tightness. Overall, loved this dress!

Need this in my closet!
This is my second time renting an RVN dress and I am now officially obsessed. They're tight, yes, but so figure-flattering. The fabric is very thick and textured, so it acts like its own shapewear. The Small and Medium sizes felt very similar when I tried them on. Loved the fun pattern and I felt great at my girls-night-out.

Lots of fun in this sassy dress!
This dress was really cute but SO tight. I rented a Small and couldnt even get it over my shoulders, but luckily I got the Medium as a back up and wore that. Definitely get one size up. This dress is awesome but basically was like wearing a dress made out of Spanx. Although its tight it does flatten out everything and the pattern is busy and textured so it was very complimentary to my figure. :) I also paired it with a bright, fun coral necklace and matching coral stilettos from Aldo. I would wear it again for sure.

AWESOME dress, but I would order a Large next time. It was too tight to wear to my co holiday party
Very fitted, but very flattering oddly. Can't see stomach ripples or bulges and holds everything in! But very tight.

I actually purchased this dress for cocktails nights
It does run a little on the snug side and without a zipper makes it tricky to get into. Be sure to get the dress on and then do yours hair! However, it is heavy material that is in incredibly form flattering so no need for Spanx!

Stylist review: Such a cute option for a night out!
I'm usually a medium, but RVN runs pretty small so I'm glad I had this as a backup size. It's so cute and comfortable. Can be a little snug at the bust, so this would be best for women with smaller chest areas as it smushes you in a little. I like that it stretched. Overall I loved this style and would wear it again!

Form fitting sexy dress
This dress is great but a few things to note about the fit. 1) it is form fitting (like a glove) 2) I liked the dress length at first but it rode up a lot when I walked- making it appear a lot shorter 3) I am a size 0/2. Although I fit into the S I wore the M- it was more comfortable and a little longer (I am 5'8"). You will make a statement with the dress.

Most Amazing Dress Ever!
I wore this to a wedding reception and cannot say enough amazing things about this dress. It fit absolutely perfect and hugged my body in all the right places! I have never felt better in a dress and do not want to send it back! The texture is so cool and very flattering.

This dress is really hot. And it doesn't reveal too much at the same time.
This dress is amazing on. The only downside is that you really need to put the dress on before you do your hair and make-up because you have to wriggle into it and it's very form fitting.

Perfect Dress for a Nigh Out With Friends!
This dress fits perfect, just like a glove! It is very simply with the black and white pattern and extremely flattering. You do not need to wear a bra with this dress and it it the perfect length. I actually rolled it up a bit underneath, since I am super short, but it fit perfect! I absolutely recommend this dress for anyone looking for an easy going out dress.
