Perfect for Occasion, Perfect for Me

As someone who struggles with being comfortable in dresses/skirts, I figured getting a dress (I had to wear a black dress to this event) that was long enough to cover most of my legs would be helpful and I am really happy with my decision. This dress is cozy, warm due to it's material - which is not super thick or heavy (it was very cold the day I wore this), and snug (I felt kind if sexy!) and appropriate for many types of spaces. I especially loved the long sleeves and would say that this dress could be worn to work and most social events. Very very happy with this rental and would rent again.

Stretch so pick your size

I sized down to a medium being a large for a fitted look and I got that. Nice black dress. I loved that it was long and perfect for winter. Wore with boots and called it a go. Mind you I had to wear spanx cause my body isn't toned but no complaints on the outfit itself.

It wasn't unforgettable.

The neck is a bit loose. The cinching is flattering but overall the 1x was too big for my figure.

Pretty Black Dress!

I liked this dress on, it had ruching along the sides like a maternity top that surprised me allowing a more slimmer look. It did ride up a bit, but otherwise it's a simple black dress. It has thin material and can easily be worn to something more casual.

Fit like a glove.. in the best way

I ordered the medium and large. Both fit fine. I preferred the medium but chose not to wear it to the wedding, as it was a bit too "sexy" for the conservative church service. I will definitely be renting it again though-- for a date night!

Nice dress for work

Nice winter dress for work but I'd definitely suggest spanx under the dress because the fabric isn't very thick.

Ordering process is very easy.

This dress was a perfect fit for the occasion and my body. I usually wear size 12/large but the medium was just right so it's fair to say you can safely size down!

Comfortable and slimming

Very comfortable material, a little tight over the hips but still looked fine. The ruching was actually a benefit - dresses like that can show every little curve or dip on my body, but the ruching blended It all in. Also - It made me look graceful and more slender! Wore It for work several times, and then with sneakers to go out for a casual meal with my friends.

From office to networking event

I really liked this dress. I wear a lab coat at the office, so everything has to fit without bunching up in my underarms. This dress fit the bill. Wore with sheer black stockings and pumps. At the end of the workday, I took down my hair, put on bright red lipstick, and I was ready for a happy hour networking event. Very comfortable and versatile. Would rent again.

The dress hugs the right places and would have been perfect in a smaller size.

the length is VERY long (almost down to my ankles) I think they should show the length of these dresses on models who aren't 5'7"

Loved it - bought it.

I didn't even look in the mirror when I had to rush out and wear this dress - my husband's face was enough encouragement. It is tremendously forgiving with the ruching/gathered fabric on the sides. I have worn it dancing and I have worn it to formal speaking events. One of those basic pieces for a diverse wardrobe.

When I put this on, it felt like a warm hug with a sexy “ snap” of “ Yasss 👸 Queen”

Slimming and hugs all the right areas . It’s perfect for a fall evening with nice heel or bootie. I only tried it on out of the box and instantly knew I needed it my wardrobe . I believe for any size ( especially tall women) this is a must have in your closet! I’m curvy athletic at 6’0 . My guess is you’ll need a body slimmer to smooth out the welrinkles and back fat ( I will ) . Can’t wait to wear this out and about ! Great fit ! Love this immediately.

Chic, comfortable, very flexible

This fit like a dream. The ruching at the body and hips are very forgiving. You can dress this up or down since it's pretty much a blank slate. Fabric reminded me of a maxi dress, but with a little more weight due to the ruching. Would definitely hang onto this as a longer-term piece in my Unlimited rentals

Every day.

Nice fit and good quality, ribbed material. It definitely shows everything in your mid-section but the ruching does help. Also for shorter gals like myself it is more of a tee length than a below-the-knee length.

Great little dress

I wore this for Christmas dinner with a fur vest. The material is very light weight which was kind of nice and the detail at the wrist/body was nice. Very comfortable fit, but you will want to feel comfortable with your body, or wear spanks due to fabric weight.

RTR Employee Review: Amazing Long Black Dress!

This dress was amazing for work, but can definitely be worn out of the office. The material was very soft and comfortable. It's form fitting and hugs all your curves, but has rouging on the sides, which was great for covering up your stomach etc.! I'm 5 feet tall, and the fabric came down to right before my ankles. The arms on the dress were long on me (but keep in mind that I'm very short) Wasn't a big deal because I just folded the sleeves and you could barely tell! Really recommend this dress to everyone! Got so many compliments and was so comfortable all day.

Thin and tight...not very forgiving

I loved the dress...wore it with booties and tights and a fur cropped jacket. Very tight so be prepared to wear the right undergarments.
