Tons of compliments on this dress! Was told my legs looked like they went on for days :)
Fit is true to size, I wore the XS because it was a bachelorette and that was the look we were going for. I loved how it cinched in the waist so many times my waist does not match with the waist on the dress but this was great! It does open a bit however I wore a crop top underneath and left it open, added a sexy twist. Could also have been done with a body suit underneath. As long as your top does not look like a real bra and has something else going for it I think its a fun extra!

Bring a pin or tape
It's super cute but you need a pin or tape to keep it down in the front. You'll be flashing everyone if you don't.

24th Birthday
I wore this dress for my 24th birthday. Got lots of compliments on it. Had to fashion tape the top of it to keep it in place, which worked great until the tape came unstuck! Dress is very short! As others have noted, there is absolutely no stretch to it, it was rather tight on my arms but once I had it on it wasn't too bad.

This dress was perfect for my bachelorette party!
The dress was a bit tight, but perfect for a night out! I had to use fashion tape in order to keep the front of the dress closed, but it was an easy fix.

Sexy winter dress!
I loved this dress! The neckline is super deep so I decided to pin it in place. The skirt was very short.. even on me (I'm 5'1!). But it was sexy, comfortable and warm for the winter. Overall it fit well. My only issue was with the ruching on the shoulders. The weight of the fabric made the shoulders fall forward and twist the arms a bit throughout the night. I'm sure no one else would have noticed, it was just a small annoyance. I would still rent this again regardless because it looked great!

Versatile black dress
Looking for an easy NYE dress and this was easy to dress up or down with the front slit. Definitely needs fashion tape (didn't come in package but I had my own).

Holy plunge, Batman! A gorgeous, seemingly versatile dress with a V tragically too deep to move in.
I love everything about this dress except that I had to pin it a good 8 inches above where the criss cross V-neck met, which led to weird-looking drape lines. But the ruched skirt sides and the batwing sleeves were wildly flattering, and I really wanted to like it in every other way.

really great dress, very flattering, loved it and would rent again!
Wore for NYE and was perfect! I was worried because the back up size i wanted was out of stock, but the small ended up working. the arms are a little tight like everyone else says but they loosen up and were not uncomfortable. The bottom skirt portion did not ride up like i expected it even though it was very tight. Like everyone else says, the front is VERY open and you need to either use fashion tape or safety pins to close it up unless you want to show everyone everything up top. I used a safety pin and it worked well the whole night! Gave 4/5 stars instead of 5 because you REALLY do need to use some sort of fashion tape or safety pin, which is not how it looks on the model on the website.

Loved everything about this!
This dress was a show stopper, as you can see it is a little on the short side and the neckline was very showy, but with fashion tape I was able to make it a little more conservative. Very forgiving in the hips and tummy area, flattering for my figure for sure. I had so many compliments on this dress, and if I have the chance I will definitely rent it again!

The process was so easy! A perfect dress delivered to my door, and a return label for afterwards.
I felt like a hawwwwtie in this dress. I received a million compliments. Made my legs look great; skirt was short and tight, and top was designed to be loose (must use fashion tape or you'll flash the world). I may rent this again. Would love to own it.

An NYE winner
After reading the other reviews, I had fashion tape ready when the dress arrived. Luckily, my couple pieces lasted through all the dancing and prevented any awkward wardrobe malfunctions. I ordered a medium and a small (thanks for the free second size, RTR!), and could have gone with either though chose the small for a more form fitting look. The dress was comfortable and breathable-- definitely would rent again!

Not my favorite rental, but okay for a bachelorette party
This dress was just okay. The bottom was very tight but then the top of it was awkwardly loose so the overall fit was not very flattering. As other renters noted, the entire front of the dress is basically open, so I ended up wearing a little lace bandeau underneath (I am not even sure fashion tape would have kept it closed) but even still I felt like I was pulling at the front of it all night. the sleeves are a bit tight as well.

Effortless dress! Super fun to customize with accessories!
Dress was very heavy and well-made. The small is a little tight in the arms so I went with the medium. The front is very loose so you will need to wear a camisole or use fashion tape. The length of the dress has alot of room to adjust-this dress would look good on anybody.

This was my first time renting a dress from RTR and I will absolutely do it again!
the fit was very true to size..I normally wear a 0 or 2 but went with the small for more length. I am 5'6 and the dress came about mid thigh wearing the small. The dress is made very well, and the fabric is very forgiving so I never felt self conscience! One note... fashion tape or safety pins! The top is very lowcut..but it still looked great even though I have nothing to fill out on top!

Very short and tight!
Like everyone else said, you have to pin or tape it or else you leave nothing to the imagination! It is also very short and I am barely 5'4. Overall though, once I pinned it, it looked fine and the bottom did NOT ride up! It fit me perfectly in the M, the S was way too tight for me. It was a very comfortable dress overall once it was pinned close in the front!

Wore this to a work holiday party.
It is really short. I'm 5'3" on a good day and I was a little self concious in it. Nothing a little self tanner on my legs couldn't help, lol! Fashion tape for the top is a must to keep the girls from being totally exposed.

Great dress for parties! Hides everything you want to hide but accentuates the curves.
Fashion tape is a must for this dress! Arms fit a bit tight but everything else was great.

Sexy. Very low cut.
Rented this dress for weekend date night. I rented large and medium was my back up but the large was damaged. I wore the medium. The skirt part was tight and short but manageable. The top is lose and flowy and LOW. I wore a black tank top under. It was definitely a fun and sexy dress!

Cute dress, but couldn't wear it
I rented this dress in a S and M for my birthday party--- the small was great on top, but way too tight on the bottom, the medium, vice versa. The M would have worked but the shoulders were just too big... it looked odd. Definitely be careful in ordering this one. RTR was SO great about it not fitting, though!

Great look for going out.
I really liked this dress, except for the neckline. The fit was perfect, but I had to close the top with a safety pin. I don't think that fashion tape can hold this dress closed for long enough.

Great but not for my occasion
Sorry, not a great picture! Will rent again for the right occasion. Fashion tape works great. Simple but love this lbd. This is a size S when I was a few pounds heavier than my usual and still fit well.

Flattering dress, but runs small
Loved this dress, super easy to wear and very comfortable. It does run a little small, I'm usually a medium and the large barely fit me. Super flattering and thick material for a cold night. Had to pull it down a little bit throughout the night while we were dancing, but fashion tape was definitely needed for the top, like everyone else has said. Overall, a great dress and looks great on any body type!

This dress was perfect for our 16th anniversary date night! I loved everything about it!
I was nervous about the fit after reading some of the comments about it being tight in the arms. I have larger arms and it fit fine. I was so excited. You will definitely want to pin it or use tape because it is really low cut.

Overall this is a simple LBD that you could wear to any event. VERY comfortable!
The fit is true to size. I initially wanted a Large since I'm 5'8" and was worried about it being short. But the medium fit just well. The fabric was thick enough to keep me warm at a fall night wedding.

Great LBD!
Flattering LBD... You definitely need fashion tape or you will show a lot, the dress dips low. It's also a bit short. But if you like to accentuate your legs and chest, this is a winner! No stretch to the dress, so I went with the medium ( for comfortable in the arms and waist). Great rental for the price! Got lots of positive feedback :)

Great LBD!
Wore this for my sister's engagement party. Loved the stretchy material. It was very comfortable. A teeny bit short, but not a problem. The top was a little too drapey and need to be taped/pinned in order to keep everything in check ;) Definitely would recommend!

Comfortable and classic, LBD. Unique draping, and lots of leg. Got lots of compliments.
Pros - Flattering, unique, comfortable yet sexy; Cons - on the short side, need fashion tape for bust or your bra will show.

Classy and sexy
I adored this dress! I rented and wore it for a friend's bachelorette night of dinner and barhopping. It's a very flattering cut with the low v-neck and three-quarter sleeves. The waistband and loose fabric helped cover and slim my midsection. Note that the top half can easily move out of place and expose your chest and bra; it's probably best to pair with fashion tape to secure the top where the two sides of fabric meet. The bottom was a short length to show off the legs, which I loved except that it rode up all night while dancing (to be expected with most tight dresses). All in all, a winning and flattering dress!

Wore this 2 nights in a row. Date night with hubby, pearls and heals, very classy. Then the next night to a Girls Night Out with tons of dancing. I'm sad to send it back but love the memories! Now I have 2 more coming next week for a wedding! RTR is amazing!

Figure-flattering LBD that you can dress up or down!
I wore this dress to a party and even though it's super simple, I got a ton of compliments. It is very figure-flattering...accentuates the bust and legs, but hides the tummy and arms. If your small in the bust, it will require safety pins (tape didn't stick to the material for me). It definitely requires a push-up bra, but doesn't require spanx. Fits tight so I definitely wore the medium over the small. Although it's low-cut and short, it still is conservative enough to wear something a little more formal. Overall, just a great versatile dress!

My 21st Birthday was so perfect in this great dress!
A fun night out in the city in the spring was great with this dress, Sleeves kept me warm, but the length kept it fun! I wore a tight tank under because the front was very open, but it really was perfect. I would buy if I could afford it... but thats the beauty of RTR!

DO NOT ORDER WITHOUT FASHION TAPE!
As my title suggests, this dress is completely unwearable without fashion tape, I'm so glad I purchased it. The dress is very short and rides up as you walk. It was very stretchy and comfortable, but due to my constant readjusting of the hemline, I don't think I would rent again.

Flattering for a Night Out!
I wore this dress for a night out in Atlantic City. I do not have a large chest, therefore I was a little nervous about the neckline. I used LOTS of fashion tape, but still looked down to check every now and then to make sure I was still covered. The dress ran true to size. I usually wear dresses size 0 - 4, so I ordered sizes S and M. I wore the S. The dress was very flattering. There is no stretch in the material. The arms were a little tight, but I pushed the sleeves above my elbows and they didn't bother me during the night. I would recommend this dress if you want to feel sexy and confident!

I wore this dress for my Bachelorette party and it was a hit! It was just sexy enough!
The dress is fitted in the hips and arms but not uncomfortably. The opening in the front is very open, so I used a safety pin to keep it a bit closer together. It's relatively shorty and if I had worn the medium, I think I may have worried a little less about flashing people. Overall, a really great dress to wear anywhere, parties, weddings, fancy date night. It flatters without being to revealing.
