I was comfortable for my friend's wedding!

The dress is very lightweight and comfy, almost feels like you're wearing formal PJs! The cutout is a nice touch on this plain black dress. Would totally rent it again.

Comfy and lightweight

I think I was most surprised by the fabric - in the picture it looks like it might be a little heavy, but it's not - really lightweight and comfortable which was perfect for a warm summer night cocktail party. The fit was great and the slit was in the right spot so a normal bra fit well. I wish it was a bit shorter, but it's not long by any means. Very cute and would wear again.

It was great to wear a dress that looked perfect and felt perfect!

I loved this dress. I normally wear a size 22 and I got the 2x. I was concerned that the heavier material was going to be hot but it wasn't at all. Actually the material is what made the fit so wonderful. It was form fitting in the bust and waist but because the material was thicker it didn't accentuate my imperfections. I am 5'2" and the length was just below my knees. Unfortunately I don't have a pic of me standing up in the dress only one sitting down. I would get this dress again. I loved the fit, the fabric and my boyfriend thought it was beautiful!

Simple and classic! So many compliments!

This dress is great! It is made of a stretchy like fabric and was so comfortable. I chose to wear the 1x instead of the 0x because it was more comfortable across the chest. I would absolutely rent this again

felt pretty

Fit well but I had to wear a belt and a jacket over it to hide my belly. Elastic material. Could be a nice "little black dress". Very comfortable.

I wore this for my husband's company holiday party that was "casual cocktail" attire

The fabric has some stretch in it so it felt a little large but it was very comfortable. I'm 5'10" and I liked that it wasn't too short. Since it was December and the party was indoor/outdoor, I wore it with opaque tights and patent heels. With the crew neck and cutout, I just did some fun green statement earrings. I got several compliments on how the dress was simple and elegant, people couldn't believe it was a rental!

Cute Dress. Got lots of compliments all night. VERY comfy

It is a more casual material than I was expecting. And it is stretchy. I would say it is true to size because I don't really know what to base it off of. I am usually a size 14 in dresses and it fit fine...was a tad big...which I guess I would expect from a 0X. But the Halsten version with long sleeves was sold out. I paired it with sparkly gold peep toe Nine West heels to dress it up a bit and some funky gold jewelry. It was a for a work Holiday party so it added just enough fun, without feeling like I was over dressed.

I wore this for a NYE party and was very comfortable.

The dress fits nicely on a curvy frame, the cut was flattering and the fabric forgiving. I wore it for at least six hours and was comfortable.

Fun and flattering

The keyhole makes the basic black dress more fun, I did have to try on several strapless bras before I found one that didn't show in the keyhole. I just had a baby and this flattered my stomach area

I wore this dress to a fundraiser/dinner.

I wasn't sure which size to order, so I ordered a 0X and a 1X. I should've ordered a 2X (I'm a 16 or 18 in most clothes). The dress fit, but was a little snug. I liked the dress, and it got compliments - my fiance suggested I purchase the garment because it was cute and in the right size, it would be perfect. I wore with black tights and knee-high black boots and the look was great. I will add, I'm 6' tall and without the tights, it would've been a little on the short side, but I was comfortable with the length.

The event was an interior designer awards ceremony with a hint of red. This dress made me stand out.

I ordered the 0x , the size I usually wear, with a back up of 1x. I could have gotten away with it wearing the 0x because the material was pretty stretch, but I ended up wearing the 1x because it felt more comfortable. I was so happy I could wear a normal demi-cup bra with this. I feel like I could have dressed up the dress or dressed it down for a more casual affair. I really love the stretch and heaviness of the fabric.

Not quite what I expected

The material was unexpected, like a lightweight bucle. More casual than I thought it would be, but as a LBD, you can dress this up or down. A true office to evening look. Be sure to wear a bra that won't show as the cutout is a bit lower than it looks. If you have larger arms, I think you will find the armholes to be a bit tight.

Stylist Review!

This style is a really great LBD! The material is surprisingly light, which is great for the summer. The length was shorter on me, than expected, but it was still manageable. The sleeves were a little tight, but after a while the material stretched out to fit better. The only thing to make note of is that, with the little cutout, a standard bra is a little difficult because it can be easily seen. Otherwise, this is a really great style!

The Back Too

I just posted a review and mentioned the back, so I wanted to add a picture of it too. The glam updo is a must for this dress.

I enjoyed the dress. Got a few compliments especially the cutout detail.

Runs a tad large but is very comfortable and great for girls who are shy about showing their arms. I liked it a lot and would rent again in a smaller size.

So comfortable!

Comfortable and light weight! Danced in it all night. I love how the cut out makes a simple black dress a little more unique! I felt great in this dress. Would definitely recommend to a curvier body shape that is looking for a flattering dress shape. Both the OX and 1X fit me, I went for the bigger size to give me some extra room in the mid section. I am 5'4" and 215 in this picture. Usually I wear either a 16 or 18.

I wore it for a rehearsal dinner and it was perfect!

This dress is simple, but the cut out makes it a little different from other black dresses. It was really comfortable and easy to move in. I got a 0X and 1X and both fit, but I felt a bit more comfortable in the 1X. The style and cut are really flattering and I got compliments all night. I would definitely rent this one again!

Great dress!

I wore this dress to a class reunion. It was so cute and I got so many compliments! It runs a bit big through the chest and shoulders. If you are bigger in the bust it would fit fine. The hole at the left chest area shows your bra, and I don't know that a strapless bra would make a difference. I wore a black plunge bra and that did help. Just keep that in mind when choosing undergarments.

Flattering dress

The material was less structured than I expected, but still loved the dress. The softer material made the dress more comfortable than expected. The cutout is just enough skin. Wore to work and also baby shower, lots of complements.

Beautiful structured event

I absolutely love this dress! It fit so perfectly. I wasn't uncomfortable at all in this dress. I was able to dance, move around, and SLAY with it! The material was lightweight which made it perfect for the spring weather. I received so many compliments on it. I will definitely rent this dress again if I could

This is a fantastic dress for dinner at a conference.

The fit was good, but maybe a wee large in the bust. The cut is comfortable and the look is great! I receive many, many compliments on this dress.

Stylist review

Perfect LBD! I can not even begin to tell you how comfortable this dress is. It's also a great desk to dinner dress. Running true to size I would recommend sizing up for your backup. There is plenty of stretch in this dress so you will have some wiggle run to play with making it great for any bust size. This dress flares out after the waist giving room for hips. At 5'4 this dress fell at the knee on me. I would pair this dress with flats for work casual and black heels for a night out.

LBD that wasnt too little. And unique!

Great dress for work. Was a nice material, a tasteful length for work, and had a bold design element with the cutout. I loved that my bra never poked out from the cutout. Was easy to wear and I felt confident in it. That being said, this is not a bold look like other dresses, it's simple and cute.

Loved this dress. I wore it for a funeral and felt very comfortable.

I'm a size 20/22 (44D) so right in between a 2x and 3x. I went with the 3x because it was ultimately more comfortable (but a little loose in the bust). The 2x fit just fine as well (was perfect in the bust) but clung to the top of my stomach a little bit.

A FUN FIRST RTR DRESS

This was the first time I used RTR Unlimited and I hope to continue enjoying it. This was a simple classic black dress I found to be perfectly suited for both my office, 9-5 job during the day and my evening job as an events host. It was comfortable and showed off my hourglass figure in the beat way. I will say that I did not realize that the cut out would leave my bra strap exposed so I was fidgeting with it all day to keep it out of sight. Make sure you have the right bra for this dress!

It's a stylish dress, flattering and at the same time can look professional.

It's actually super versatile. If you want a little edge, get a smaller size or the next size up runs longer.

Pretty Dress but not for me

This dress was very large on me. I typically wear a 10/12 and I knew I was taking a gamble on this dress. It was a beautiful dress though. It was well made, nice fabric, and a really pretty silhouette. Unfortunately the top part was just so big on me. I didn't end up wearing it.

I received a lot of compliments at work!

The dress was comfortable, although the fabric didn't seem very special. I only had one bra that would work with the cutout, but I enjoyed wearing this dress.
