Sexy little black dress

This dress fit pretty well. It was a little loose in the bust, but the size down was a little tight in the waist. Luckily the black was forgiving so the fact that it was a little loose on top wasn't obvious. You could probably wear it without a bra, but I wasn't that daring

Cute dress for sister's sweet 16!

I absolutely loved this dress that I wore for my sisters sweet 16. When I first got the dresses, I tried on the 12 first and it seemed too loose in the bust area (coming from me that's a huge deal since I am large in that area!). The 10 fit like a glove. However, at the end of the night I noticed that the seem holding the dress together at the bust area was ripped :( other than that the dress complimented my figure very nicely and I got a lot of compliments on it. Would definitely rent again!

Hmmm

I didn't end up wearing the dress because it was a little too big and I had a second choice I rented

Cute and comfy LBD

This dress is super flattering and comfortable. I loved the back. The only draw back is that it has zero support in the front and a stick on bra would be necessary. I chose to wear an alternate outfit that I had ordered. But I would rent this again for a party.

Wore this dress to a bachelorette party. The open back is so nice and cute! The dress fit perfectly. I'm pretty short so the length was a little bit longer than I thought. But over all great!

Bra-less Bachelorette?!

I chose this dress after the one I wanted became unavailable and all my other "plan b's" were already booked solid. I am a muscular girl with a weird build: my waist is small but my thighs/hips and shoulders/upper arms are usually of a larger size. This dress actually fit me perfectly which is great. The downside is the backless part of the dress was actually a little high - it cut off mid back. It was also a little uncomfortable for me because I could not wear any type of bra. I experimented with some tape and stickies, but I still felt a little too "free range." All in all, the dress was comfy and everyone said I looked good in it, but I think this is best for the small straight and narrow body types.

Perfect for bachelorette party!

This dress was perfect for a bachelorette party in Nashville! It fit really cute and I got a ton of compliments. My only complaint is that the seams in the front were pulling a bit, but it wasn't super noticeable.

Sexy dress, good for my curves!

No cons. Loved the back, felt very sexy. I didn't wear a bra but tape would have worked for anyone who might need to. True to size but I'm usually an 8-10 and the 8 fit best because it was loose at the hips

Back attack!!!

OMG let's talk about the back of this dress!!! It's gorge!!! A little lace embellishment and sexy strap wahooweee! And the front is modest just in case you're feeling exposed. I paired this with one of those push up sticky bras, that no one seems to think works (I was one of those people, turns out they work if you follow the directions to a T.) The bottom part is flowy without adding too much volume to the hips. I wish I owed this dress! I think I need to buy it!

Loved the back, has a party-girl vibe

The fit of this dress is nice for girls like me who have slightly bigger hips and butts than their waist might suggest. The waist line has elastic and so there's a little give, then it's completely flowy below that. I didn't end up liking it as much as the tighter-fitting dress I wore earlier in the week because I didn't feel like it showed off my body (except for the back, of course, which was awesome). I don't know what the right undergarments are to wear with a backless dress (because I didn't wear a bra) but I would certainly recommend wearing something. There are darts in the front and, uh, sometimes things don't perfectly align.

Second time I've rented from RTR and continue to love their service and customer care.

I wore it for a NYE party while pairing it with tights and red booties. The 8 was a little big in the back, where the lace detailing was, so I ended up going with the 6. It bunched up a little if I didn't pull the dress down every once in a while but no other complaints. It was a beautiful dress and fit the occasion perfectly!

So many compliments!

The dress fit me perfectly! the front is very conservative which I liked (so did my parents) yet the back and side was very fun & flirty. I had to wear a nubra & I never had problems with it the whole night. so don't let that bra fear Ruin your night!

I felt beautiful in this dress! The perfect balance of classy and sexy.

-fit is true to size -beautiful lace details on side -I have a small waist and bigger upper thighs. This dress perfectly balanced my body type because it conches the waist and flares out to skim over the legs -halter top was very flattering for shoulders -you will need a sticky bra as it is backless -very comfortable -didn't have to adjust at all during the night

This dress was just beautiful

This dress was absolutely fantastic! It fit true to size and I was receiving compliments from my boyfriends fraternity brothers all night. I typically cannot get away with anything backless because the fabric is too thin or stick on bras show through, but this one worked out perfectly.

Cute for a bachelorette party!

This dress came in and I didn't love it when I tried it on but all dressed up I liked it much better. It's a little poofy in the front but it did still look flattering I thought. Everyone shows pics of the back so I thought I would show one of the front and how I accessorized. Overall a good rental!!!

Love the Lacey sudes

I thought this dress ran very true to size. I am typically a size 2-4. I wore the size 2 and had extra room in the waist. Although the material was thick enough to wear without a bra i would have preferred a stick on bra cup for the shape.

This dress was so awkward. The back looked pretty, but the waist fell at my rib cage.

The fit was terrible. The straps weren't adjustable at all. The waistband fell at my ribs. It was unflattering and I had to send it back. I don't recommend this dress

Unflattering

This was the main dress I'd ordered for my 10 year high school reunion, and while it wasn't hideous it certainly wasn't flattering. I'd say this is the kind of dress that would work wonders for someone with a slim upper body. I have more of the type of hourglass that means a wider ribcage, and that translated into this dress looking weirdly sloppy on my frame. Would probably add hips to a straight body type, but help disguise hips for a pear shape. If you have wide ribs or broad shoulders, I might advise you to look elsewhere.

Favorite dress I've ever worn

I bought this for a Sadie's dance. I wanted something classic but modern so I added pearls and it worked beautiful! Any kind of accent necklace works very well. I would suggest an updo to show off the back especially if you have long hair. I did two French fishtail braids going into a bun and it really accentuated the classic look. I wore a stick on bra because the dress is very thin up top and I wouldn't advise not wearing a bra unless you have a smaller bust. Overall this is my favorite dress I ever wore!! Everything was perfect about it and it made my back look amazing

The back is great!

Ordinary LBD in the front, really special from the back. I think others have noted, but the waist has some give and falls at a nice spot, so the back is really flattering. I usually wear a 6 but went with the 4, and even that was a bit big on top (I'm a pear) without a bra. I think it would be better with a sticky bra, but I couldn't find mine, so I went without. Beware the Marilyn effect if there's a breeze. I wore it with flat sandals to dinner and a concert. You could dress it up quite a bit with the right shoes and accessories.

I wore it for a bachelorette party. It fit perfectly, true to size

It will definitely need sticky blobs of some sort. The top doesn't have any support and of course the back is open. I'm 5'6" and the length was perfect for a bachelorette party - a little shorter in front and a smidge longer in back (I have a big butt so length can be an issue). I liked that I was able to respect the bride's wishes and all the girls wore black while she wore white, yet I still stood out. Loved this dress!

Perfect fitting CUTE dress!!

This dress was amazing!! It fit perfectly, both the 10 and the 8. I wore the 8 because it was a little more flattering in the front. The front looks boring in the photos but it is actually extremely flattering!! I'm 5'11 and this dress wasn't too short or awkwardly long! I paired it with a hat and fun flash tattoos to try and bohemian it up a bit! The back was gorgeous, it was awkward to take photos of the back to show you, but the sides of the dress were my favorite part of the entire dress! I wore those stick on boobs, just because I felt more comfortable with them on, I'm sure it can be worn without a bra no problem! Got tons of compliments and never wanted to take the dress off!! I'm crossing my fingers it goes on sale down the road so I can get it back! Love love LOVE the dress. RTR also did a great job, this was my first time renting to my house in Hawaii and I was extremely nervous about the shipping days. Everything went perfectly. Great company! Can't wait for my next rental to get here :)

I wore this for a bachelorette party and felt classy and sexy all night! The back is amazing but make sure you have a bra option. My size did not fit tight enough to not wear one. I wish I had this LBD in my closet!

I loved the back of this dress! The design of the back is very cute.

It was pretty true to size. I love the back of the dress and how it showed off my waist and back. It is somewhat small at the waist but that is the only con.

You need a jelly bra for the dress. It was beautiful, I was complimented all night and asked where I got it. It was a bit short for a tall girl like me but overall- spectacular!!!

Hot dress

This is the best little black dress ever. I wore it for Valentine's Day at a very high class restaurant, and the dress went perfectly. Since it is backless and has the lace on the sides, it's a little flirty, but the flowy bottom and higher neckline balances it out. Great for girls with larger thighs and small torso, it is super flattering and slims/lengthens the legs. My only complaint would be that the elastic is a little itchy, but it's still super comfy. All in all one of my favorite rentals ever.

Not that impressed

The dress was cute. The open back was cute but the dress was too plain for me. Also if you have larger breasts this is not for you. Not my style and wouldn't rent it again.

Perfect Black Dress

I wore this dress for my law school graduation and I loved it. It was light and airy which was perfect for under my gown in hot Florida in May. It was extremely comfortable and I would definitely rent it again for a summer function!

I felt flawless

This dress was actually my backup but I fell in the love second I put it on. It is organza (maybe) and has absolutely no stretch to the fabric but it fit me perfectly. It is a little bit sheer especially since I personally didn't wear a bra but I was confident you couldn't see though. It is very airy and fun. It stayed in place all night and I wore it on a date to a dance club. I didn't have to fuss with it once. I got so many compliments and felt truly amazing in this dress. I would rent again in a heartbeat.

Not for short torsos

If you have a short torso, this is not the dress for you. The sides in the back had a lot of extra lace that didn't lay flat because I couldn't fill out the dress height-wise. I thought since I have an athletic shape and broad shoulders/back that this wouldn't be a problem, but it was even with a smaller size.
