I liked the dress but didn't love it. I actually thought it was a bit boring, even with shoes and accessories. I wouldn't have thought it, but I probably could have gone with a size smaller - the top of the dress was a bit big, and that's with a size 34DD chest. It looked fine, but was basically a plain black dress. I did like the pockets in it though!

Very comfortable and easy to wear. A great showcase for fab accessories. Fit perfectly. i only say that it runs large because I have a J-Lo/Kim K type of butt and I usually have to go up to a size 4 because of that. But the size 2 in this dress fit perfectly!

Great Black Dress
This dress is great! I ordered both the 10 and 12 and wore the 10- I normally wear a 12. Order two sizes if you rent this dress.

yay! this one fit so well.
I was a groom's honor attendant and had to wear a black dress to match the groomsmen's suits. I'm a 34A, with a 26" waist and 36" hips. I called RTR just to make sure I was picking the right sizes (I rented 3 dresses total - this one was a back up but I ended up wearing it). They said my measurements sounded like a true 4, so to pick a 2 for this dress since it runs big. The size 2 fit perfectly, with a plus being it had pockets for holding the ring.

Cute but not flattering on me.
This dress is cute but was not flattering on my body type (smaller waist, bigger legs)-- it wasn't quite fitted enough and the waistline didn't hit me in the right spot.

Gor.Geous.
I rented this dress for a fall wedding where I didn't need to be too fancy, but still wanted to be polished, and this dress definitely fit the bill. Normally wear a size 6, but the back up size (a size 4) was still a little big on me around the waist. Probably could have used a size 2 (as recent weight loss may have accounted for the dress being big. Dress looked great, I was complimented on it all night. Came in near perfect condition (I say "near" because the hidden (but AWESOME) bra strap clip on the right shoulder of my size 4 was missing, but was easily replaced with a tiny safety pin, so no biggie). Great, modest length and coverage on the dress and the pockets were a big plus. I will definitely keep this dress in mind for future rentals. I LOVED it.

This was my backup dress but I ended up wearing it for the event. It fit like a glove!
I loved this dress and got tons of compliments! It was my backup but I liked the fit so much better than my first choice. I typically wear a size 12 but the 10 fit much better. I recommend going a size down for your backup size. It was super flattering everywhere, especially in the tummy area (I just recently had a baby and still have the pregnancy pouch). I highly recommend this dress!

I love this dress! I looked great and it's easy to accessorize for it.
It was a little bigger than I anticipated. I probably should have gotten a 4, but it wasn't so big that it was a problem. There are little things in the dress that hold your bra straps in place and pockets (such a plus).

Awesome! Felt so glamourous AND comfortable.
This dress was amazing. Beautiful pleating on the front of the skirt. The dress was so classy and elegant. I had compliments on it all night. I have a curvy figure so the cut was just perfect. The fabric was really lovely but it was heavy enough (and lined) to avoid any bumpy areas showing through. Love Love Love

Everyone complimented the dress. It may have even been a little too sexy for the wedding!
The waist fit perfect, but the top was a little too big. I had to use the included double-sided tape to keep the straps and top of the dress in place.

Adorable LBD!
This dress is the quintessential little black dress! And the best part is that it had pockets! Such a pleasant surprise, especially for a wedding when I was happy to be able to carry my phone for quick access to pictures. The skirt was the perfect length for dancing without being too short. The straps were a little loose and it needed a colorful necklace to jazz it up, but overall, I was very pleased with the rental!

I rented this dress for a friends bachelorette party. It was perfect for a night out on the town.
I rented the 0 and 2, but the 2 was too big in the chest and waist area. The zero fit well, but the bust was still a bit loose (fixable with a push-up bra or cutlets). The dress has little claps hidden under the straps to keep your bra in place; great detail! It also had pockets…who doesn't love pockets in a dress? I'm petite, 5'0", and I felt like this dress was the perfect length. It hit a couple inches above the knee. Overall, I would definitely recommend this and would consider renting it again.

Perfectly Chic
This dress was perfect for my office Christmas party. The top did run a bit big on me, but nothing that a super padded bra couldn't fix. The rest of the dress fit well. Great material. Great first time RTR experience!

Fun party dress!
I can imagine this dress is flattering on anyone! It really shows off the bust line without being too much, and the skirt is a bit of a bubble skirt, so no need to worry about sucking all night. Added bonus is the hemline is a bit higher which makes it fun. Runs quite large so order second size down.

Having dress options
The top part of this dress fits well in the 2 but is large in the 4. The bottom is bauble, and the lower half is very roomy, so it will hide curves well but there is a lot of extra material if you don't fill it out. Generally, I'm a 4, but found this was not flattering because there was too much material. Great for pear shape, not great to show off curves.

Too big to be flattering on - otherwise would've been a cute dress
I rented this dress as a back-up for a black tie optional wedding. About a year ago I rented the Shoshana Kiss Me Twice dress and LOVED it - was hoping this would be the same fit, however I was disappointed. I wore a 6 in the KMT dress, but since i've lost about 10 lbs since then, i ordered the 4 in this one. It was still too big; the waist was baggy on me, therefore the poofy skirt did not accentuate anything - instead, the dress just kind of awkwardly hung on my body. I really think the 2 would've been perfect; i am 5'5", 130 lbs for reference. I also want to point out that I opted for a more "different" dress, since the wedding was black tie optional, i wanted something a little more special than a LBD. I think if this was the proper fit, it'd be a very cute dress, especially if dressed up with a fun necklace.

Loved it but too small
I would have loved this dress I think but it was too small. They didn't have the next size up when I ordered it so I only got the one size. I have a 38DDD bra size and there was no pull in the material. Better luck next time I suppose. I ordered the size 12 and it fit exactly the same in the bust as the 10 did.

Looks nice - For smaller girls
So my dress size can vary, as can anyone else's. I had ordered this in a 12, since that was a size I've been coasting on for awhile (I can be L/XL). Sadly, when I put the dress on, it was too tight... especially for the chest area (I'm 38DD). :( Also, I really like how it looks on others and on the model, but on me it looked and felt a bit too plastic-y... I know that's not the material, but it wasn't quite what I was going for. Felt like a trash bag, in a way. Long story short, had it not been so tight/small and not felt trash bag-y, I'd have worn it this weekend....

Tight Fit for Curves
This is a beautifully made dress. The problem is that the top is VERY (and deceptively) unforgiving for larger busted ladies. I rented an 8, my typical size. I am a 36D and 135lbs, and my chest was terribly smashed in, so much so that it looked and felt totally uncomfortable (to the point that I couldn't wear it out). Had to return to RtR within 24 hours (customer service was, as usual, amazing). So in sum, I advise sizing up if you have an ample chest!

I always love coming home and my dress for the evening is waiting for me!
Pros- The bra strap strappys are wonderful. I don't have to worry about messing with my bra all night. It made me feel confident and comfortable. I got a lot of compliments. Cons- It had no give in the fabric and I had to size up to be able to get in. There isn't much "flash" to the garment but a nice LBD for a semi-conservative banquet event. THANKS RTR!

Way to small bust/ribcage
This is dress did not work for me. I ordered the 10 and the 12 and they were both too small on my bust/ribcage, even without a bra. I have a pretty large bust but it isn't often that neither a 10 or 12 will work. It was disappointing, though, because the dress is cute!

Nice dress! Just a little too snug for me in my normal size.
I ordered this as a back up dress for a New Year's Eve party, but went with the other dress I had ordered at the same time. The size 4 was definitely tight across my chest and not very flattering. The arm holes also seemed too small - but maybe that was just because it was tight across my chest. Otherwise I really liked the dress! I might actually rent it again in a size 6. I'm guessing the larger size might fit perfect.

Great LBD
I had to order this last minute as a replacement dress but it ended up looking great! The neckline and fitted waist were super flattering. The only issue I had was the chest was a little tight and I felt constricted there but I still loved it. Perfect LBD for any event!

Dress would be perfect for a night out or a birthday party but not for a formal event.
Unfortunately the dress had to go right back to RTR. I am quite tall and even after thoroughly looking at the reviews, it seemed as if it would work. I have an average bust (331/2) but a small waist (26) and hips that are (38), I really thought the fit would be fine. The straps were slightly too short, I have a long torso as well as long legs. The dress was not even near mid thigh for me and I could not even bend down or over, I don't think I would have been able to sit down either. Bottom line if you're a size 0 to 4 and over 5'8" this is not the dress for you. Luckily, after I tried on the dress I was informed the attire for the event has now ended up being evening black tie so I need a long dress anyways so it was bittersweet. Dress was beautiful but not quite what I was expecting, appears nicer in the photo and far longer than it actually is.

I had rented another dress from this site (the Black Halo Red Carpet Dress) and it was a complete disaster on me, so I ordered this one at the last moment. I am so, so, so pleased! I'm wearing this dress to my husband's office holiday semi-formal and it will be incredibly appropriate. Modest without being frumpy, super flattering AND I can wear a normal bra! The fabric is very thick and shiny. It looks well made and has beautiful tailoring. I would highly recommend this dress to other petite, curvy women!

Very comfortable, easy-to-wear dress. Poufy skirt could be considered slightly unflattering to your rear end, but the overall silhouette was nice. I felt like the waist fit me a little boxy, but the bust and skirt seemed true-to-size. Nice thick material, well made, very true to the picture. Would recommend.

This dress was another winner. I wore it to a work event, and it was a very appropriate dress for that. I am a very curvy girl with a full bust, and I like that Shoshanna designs with us in mind. This dress was very slimming, and I loved the pockets, a perfect place to hide my lipstick. I loved the detailing on the bodice of the dress. This dress was very well made and the material was good strong fabric. Very comfortable.

I rented this dress this past New Years and it was absolutely fabulous!!! It fits true to size and I loved that it had a little place to snap your bra straps so they don't fall out or slip down! (So yes, you can wear a regular bra!) I thought it was really flattering and it definitely stands out amongst the usual boring sequined mini dresses that every girl wears on New Years. The puffy skirt was my favorite, I felt like a princess! Definitely recommend this dress 100%!

I loved this dress. It was super easy to wear with a regular bra and very flattering. I am slightly short-waisted so I would have liked to see the smaller fit since the 6 was borderline roomy at the top. It was super cute with the tuleste market gold necklace.

Great fit and no worries about dry cleaning.
I rented this to wear as a bridesmaid dress for a fall wedding. The fit was great and easy to wear all day. The fabric held up very well through sitting and dancing. Plus the pockets were very handy to hold tissues and emergency lip gloss.

Cute dress
This dress is very cute but it not for some one with a large chest. I ordered a 4 and a 6. The 4 fit everywhere from the waist down but I could not zipper it up in the back, it was a little roomy in the waist also. The size 6 was too big in the waist and was very tight in the chest. I am a 36C and a size 2 or 4. This dress did not work for me, I wish it did because it is very cute.

The pockets in this dress made my night AND I got tons of compliments to boot!
This dress was perfect for my party. It fit great and has pockets in the skirt! I didn't expect this but it made for an easy night since I could keep my phone/money close by without having to worry. I loved the puffed skirt because it made me feel like a princess but without all the fuss. This dress was easy to accessorize with and made my sparkly heels really pop.
