Classy

It runs a little big in the torso area so I found I had extra material there. Because of this, it wasn't the most flattering in some of the pics. Having said that - husband thought the slit up the leg was very sexy.

Beautiful!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I rented this dress for my work's holiday party and it was a major hit. The lace is beautiful and that slit gives it that extra edge and shock factor. I'm 5'6" and if I raised my arms the dress went up, so make sure to keep your arms down. Heading to Vegas this weekend and a coworker told me to wear this dress again. It would work for Vegas, but I rented another dress for that ;) Thanks RTR!

Pretty dress, just not on me!

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
The sleeves on this dress are really gorgeous, but unfortunately neither my regular size or the backup (sizing up to a 2 in my case) fit well. The sleeves felt a little tight on me, even in the bigger size. Given that, I was surprised at how loose the body of the dress is--it fit me almost like a shift. It might be perfect for someone with more of an athletic figure, but didn't quite work for me. That said, RTR has amazing customer service! I spoke with a Go-to-Girl about the fit issue, and she sent a different dress for me immediately. Problem solved!

Great dress! Got a lot of compliments

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I'm normally a 6 but had read that this dress was a little roomy in the middle, which I too found to be true, so I ended up wearing a 4. The slit is a LITTLE high, but it wasn't my work party so it was ok if I looked a tad slutty. I'm 5'9" with long legs so short things look extra short on me, but the actual hemline on this dress was fine. Just don't bend over. At all. Very comfortable - I think it's made of scuba diving suit material which seems to be chic these days. The lace is gorgeous. Overall a great dress, would rent it again and recommend to others. Would also recommend wearing hair up so the lace on the shoulders & back is fully visible. Thanks RTR!

Too much extra fabric in the torso

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
This dress was very pretty, and the lace arms and the lower part fit well. However, there was so much extra fabric in the torso that the front and back bunched up and were loose. Very unflattering. Had to return for another style.

I didn't end up wearing the dress because I was lucky enough to rent 2 dresses that looked fabulous. I loved the neckline and the little slit.

Rented this for New Years Eve. Very classy and the slit makes it a little more fun. The dress ran true to size and the fabric was thick and semi-forgiving. Pretty comfortable also. Would rent again!

Wore this dress for NYE and it was fabulous. The lace was beautiful and the slit made it flirty.

The dress was a little less fitted in the tummy area but it was fine by me because I dont like feeling so restricted especially when I am drinking and eating all night. The dress was classy but flirty. Perfect for a girls night out or even something more upscale. It felt a little short and I'm only 5'1 but it was fine as long as you didnt bend over and touch your toes :)

I loved the laces sleeves on this dress. I was a little worried about the sheath cut because I am petite an thought it might not be flattering, I was wrong - it fit great and was very flattering!! I would definitely rent this dress again.

This is a fantastic dress!! I had such a good time in it I forgot to take a picture ! I will be renting it again for sure. You can tell the difference in the quality of these dresses. The arms run true to size but the mid section is a little large but good if you need to hide any imperfections. Love RTRW

This dress fit well for the most part, but I found the arms to be fairly tight. Other than that, I enjoyed it.

I was unable to wear this because it was way too sexy for an event I was attending with my grandparents... I didn't expect the slit to be as high as it was.

Just ok

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I rented this at the Vegas showroom and only had the option of a 6. I'm typically an 8 and it was a little too snug, but worked well. My only issue was that the dress is SUPER short and the slit makes it even shorter. Def only appropriate for a party or night out on the town.

Vegas

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this dress to wear to a wedding I went to in Vegas. It worked out perfectly! The dress is very comfortable and the slit on the side made it sexy without being over the top. However, when I sat down I had to make sure the dress didn't hike up too much due to the slit. I rented a size 8 and a 10 but ended up wearing the 8. I would rent this dress again.

Dress runs small, ordered a 16, dress looked like a size 12, it was also very short. The material looks like jersey, I was not impressed with the dress.

It was a very forgiving fabric in pictures but needed tights. It is a very short dress.

doesn't work if you have big hips/bottom area

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Would have been super cute if it fit better. It is not the fault of the dress but does not work well with super curvy woman. The size 14 fit around the bottom area but there was too much fabric up top so it looked baggy around the back

Looks like a wetsuit

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This is the strangest fabric- the body of the dress is like a wetsuit. Thick and odd looking. It's not pretty or formal in any way. The lace sleeves are nice, but the fabric at the nape of the neck gaps oddly. I ended up wearing a dress I already owned. This is my second disappointing Slate & Willow rental, so definitely not a brand for me.

The dress was pretty and sophisticated.

Size worn: 2

This was my first RTR experience. The dress arrived a day late, but it still worked out for two events. The sleeves were kind of tight and the waist was loose. It was pretty but didn't feel like a designer dress to me.

Classic LBD

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I got the 6 and 8. The 6 fit perfect but this dress is short! So since this was my husbands work event I went with the 8 for length. I would rather it fit big and not be overly revealing. The dress looked exactly like the picture. I wish I would have gotten picture because he looked really cute. I wore it with red shoes (holiday party) and got tons of compliments.

A lovely dress, nice quality of lace

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This was very nice for New Year's Eve out with friends. I knew it was short from the reviews, so this was a perfectly fine occasion for a mini. My only caution would be to be careful of the waist band of any nylons you plan to wear. I liked the dress at home, but when I tried it on at the hotel with nylons, the line that crossed my stomach was pretty noticeable through the fabric that doesn't hide much. I didn't love it because I had a couple of extra holiday pounds! That would make me give it 4 stars instead of 5, but it's not really that fault of the dress. (It was the fault of the Christmas cookies!) Good experience!

Got this dress as a backup after not being able to get the dress I originally rented. The neckline was beautiful and the sleeves fit well but it was way too short for me. If I was 25 and single I would have been all about this dress and its slit.

I wanted to love this dress....

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I wanted to love this dress and did love the top and chest area but the waist area is pretty shapeless. It made me look like I was wearing a potato sack in that area. A smaller size may have helped but then the arms might have been snug. It is really short too, it looks fine when your arms are at your sides but don't lift them an inch unless you want to show it all off!

Super weird fit. I've got a tall slender build and the arms of the 6 were really fitted and tight but the body of the dress was super loose. I could have gone up a size for the arms but looked like Shamuu. Curious how so many other people were able to wear it with ease.

I wore this dress to a holiday party and it was perfect. The slit is a nice touch and not too scandalous, especially when wearing tights.
