I felt very confident in this dress all night!
It looked incredible on me. I had lost a few pounds and was brave enough to wear a dress that hugged all my curves. I felt very confident in this dress all night. Very edgy! Loved it!

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!

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.

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!

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.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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!

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!

This dress felt amazing. I would buy it in a heart beat.
The fit was great. It was comfortable and I didn't feel "packaged" into it. The pattern hid and accentuated all the right things. Wore this in Vegas and turned lots of heads.

I wore this dress to a NYE party in Miami. It fit well, was slimming, and very comfortable!
I only have good things to say. The dress fit really well and the thick material made me feel sucked (and yet very comfortable) the whole night! Love this designer!

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 is stretchy and felt great to wear. I was originally looking at getting an Herve Leger dress, but this one fit me better. It has a similar look to an Herve at a cheaper price point, which was great!

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.

NYE is always fun :)
I'm usually a small, sometimes and XS depending on the brand. Got the S and M since reviews all said to size up and ended up wearing the small. I wanted it to be tighter but I really could have gone either way. Dress fits tight but in a good way. I had even bought spanx just in case didn't end up needing it because this dress is like spanx. I wish it wasn't so cold out so I didn't have to wear boots/tights because this dress def shows off your legs. I love the texture of the dress and pretty comfortable. It's a bit scratchy at first but nothing that's unbearable. Dress is also very thick which is perfect for winter. Overall great experience! One thing to note, this dress smells weir when you first get it, but I had enough time to air it out for a few days.

The dress fit like a glove. The fabric is thick so it hugs in the right places and keeps everything in place without being too tight on constrictive. I got a ton of compliments on the dress and how great I looked in it. Perfect dress for the occasion.

The dress was a perfect fit!
It is a surprisingly thick and textured material. Almost like a swimsuit. Very comfortable and flattering, I didn't wear spanx. I wasn't in love with it online, but when it came it was perfect! It did ride up quite a bit. Im pretty short but it was a perfect length on me. Overall loved it!

Tons of compliments
I wore this dress for my senior homecoming. It is very tight and form fitting. I enjoyed wearing it because it was comfortable to move in and did not ride up at all. The material is very thick which is also a plus because you can wear anything underneath. The dress makes any body type look good. Overall the dress is worth 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!

Fit like a glove!
I absolutely loved how this dress fit me! Holds everything in, is true to size, can wear a regular bra, super comfy, sexy, is different but not crazy. This was actually my back up dress so I didn't get a chance to wear it out since my first choice was perfect! However, this dress is on my short list and I am looking for a place to wear it! Will definitely see this dress again!

Fit was great. There was no bunching and it wasn't overly tight. This dress was a spandex material but it was very comfortable. I would definitely rent this dress again.

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.

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.

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.

Form fitting, very thick material!
Great dress, great quality material, fits like a bandage dress (bondage dress!), it was a cool summer night but probably would have been better on a fall night since it's a heavier material.

Did not wear - longer than expected.
I really liked the pattern on this dress and I usually spend quite a bit of time going through reviews to find other girls that are similar to my size/shape, but this one just didn't pan out for me. Compared to the other girls who are 5'6" - 5'7" with similar bodies, when I put the dress on it was much longer on me. Granted I do have longer legs and a shorter torso, but I was still shocked that the dress - when fit properly - was hitting below mid-thigh. It almost looks like a mini on some of the girls, so I was hoping it'd be shorter. (I'm not very curvy so longer, tight dresses don't do much for my figure.) I ordered a small and a medium after reading that you have to squeeze into the dress, but perhaps had I ordered an XS it may have been shorter. If I tried to scrunch it up a bit, the fabric looked weird and under garment lines (bra, underwear) were more apparent because of the excess fabric. And unfortunately I didn't have a chance to try these on until it was too late to order something else. All in all, I was really wanting to wear this dress because I think it looks really cute on the other girls who have posted pictures in their reviews, but it didn't look the same on me as it did on the other girls my size. :( Super cute on everyone else...

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

Would look better on a curvy person!
I ordered this dress in a small and medium and ended up swapping it out for another dress, because it looked horrible on me. I have a friend who rented this a few months ago, and it looked great on her! So it's not the dress, it's me :) My bit of advice would be to stay away from this dress if you don't have a small waist relative to other parts of your body. I don't necessarily have a large waist, but it doesn't cinch in either. I think this would look much better on someone who has a smaller, cinched-in waist. Honestly, I looked pregnant in it, and just for the record - I'm not :)

Fits perfectly. It is a tight dress but unlike most tight dresses you cant see your belly. The pattern and the tightness of the dress don't show any of your trouble spots

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!!
