Great comfortable dress- I'd buy it if they were selling it!
This is a keeper. Not as fitted as in the picture though. Comfy, cool-looking. Longer on me than on the model. If you have a big chest not for you. I'm a 34 c and it was borderline with the holes. I loved it though.

I wore this dress for my mother's 70th birthday party and a photo shoot (will upload photos later).
The dress was very comfortable to wear. It was on the warmer size. I would say I'm a medium but ended up going the small. It fit well. It wasn't too fancy or too casual. It would be the perfect black dress for every day events. I would consider buying it.

2nd time renting this one. I want to own it!!!
I can't describe how much I LOVE this dress. I had a baby shower and a funeral on the same weekend. I rented this for the funeral and as a back up in case the dress I rented for the baby shower didn't work. Forgot to have my husband take a picture, so I put it back on the second day and didn't bother zipping it up all the way, that's why its a bit crumpled across the chest. For the funeral I threw a scarf around my neck to hide the cute out/cleavage. The waist detailing makes it perfect for anyone who is even slightly concerned with having attention drawn to a less than perfect belly. And there are POCKETS!! The material is a heavier weight with some stretch to it. The sleeves were a good length for me ( I have long arms for my height) but I could see them being short on some one tall. Could just push them up and make them 3/4 I want to own this dress.

Cute and comfortable and has pockets!!
This dress was chosen for me by a stylist as a back up for an event. It is really cute but wasn't going to work because the event was in the summer and outdoors and the dress has long sleeves. I liked the dress and plan to rent it for a Christmas party so it was nice to know what size fit. The medium was perfect for me. The cut outs at the top add a fun little detail. The fabric is a nice weight and the dress has pockets!!

I wore this to chaperone the homecoming dance at my school. It was perfect - cute but professional!
Both the S and XS fit me but I felt more comfortable in the S. The XS sleeves were a little short and the length on the S was more comfortable for the event. The pockets in this dress were a huge plus too!

Eh
Been wanting to rent this dress for a while - thought it would be perfect for a work event in cold Colorado- and essentially it was, but it was just so plain. Don't rent for anything cocktail attire - the fabric is like heavy cotton and makes the dress way more casual. I'm a bit curvy and the dress was a bit tight in the hips but not enough to switch sizes.

Overall, this had a poor fit. It looks like a maternity piece and if you have a flat stomach are left with a fabric pooch! I never even wore it

A conservative but fun dress for a winter fundraiser. It was warm enough for the chilly night!
I'm pear shaped, so I had a hard time deciding which size to wear. The XS was perfect on top, but tight on the bottom. The S gave me more room on the bottom, but swallowed me up top. I went for the XS and spent the whole night adjusting my dress to get it to sit correctly. I did love the cutout detail and my husband thought the dress was figure flattering. It was also a nice choice for a winter fundraising event. It felt conservative, but still a little fun.

Pretty dress, just not for me
Ordered the large based on reviews and the dress was still too tight for me. The sleeves were too tight and constricting. Even with a Nubra, the tightness of the top made me look flat chested (I'm a 38DD for reference) from the side and shmoosed together and lewd from the front. The keyhole that should've sat just above my cleavage sat directly over it, no longer giving it that classically modest sexy look. The odd pleating where the top and bottom are stitched together at the front gave the impression I was pregnant due to the puckering. Also, due to the tightness in the back of the dress, it made fat rolls where there weren't any.

Slimming and warm cocktail dress
This dress was very flattering on my pear shape. I am 160ish, 5'6, and the L fit well. It was definitely pretty small in the top. I wouldn't pick this dress if you are big on top. The bottom of the dress is pretty form fitting, but it has nice seams and the cut is forgiving. This dress is perfect for a winter cocktail party when you don't want to be over or underdressed.

Very comfortable!
This dress was warm and comfortable for a winter party. I liked the pocket but they made the dress stick out and my hips looked wider. The circles were lower than they look in the picture and I had to wear a strapless bra. They recommend getting a size smaller as a backup but I think if I rented again I would actually get the medium as backup.

Erogenous zone, not androgynous zone :D
Show a little bit of sexy clavicle with this sexy/cute dress. It's very warm so it worked well for a late December Chicago evening. I will say that I don't think the dry cleaning was done well on this one as the underarms seemed to have a slightly pungent smell emanating from the fabric. Maybe make sure to take it out of the package right when you get it to double check.

Beautiful and unique on top, awkward-fitting on bottom
This dress is pretty and elegant and was great for my Mom's birthday party. I didn't feel "stunning" like several of the other dresses I have rented previously from RTR. This dress had a lot of extra room in the stomach and hips (I have narrow hips) and would be great for someone trying to conceal that area.

Liked the front detail, but the fullness in the front made a bit of a pooch that wasn't the most flattering.

Classy, comfortable, and sexy! Wonderful combination! I want to buy it! Love the pockets and fabric.
I wore this dress for a work awards dinner. I wanted to look professional but since the attire for this event was "cocktail" also I wanted something that had a little bit of an edge. The cutouts are perfect. They are high enough so you feel well covered but they give it a different look instead of just being another black dress. The fabric is thick and the sleeves were a great length. I have very long arms and they were the perfect 3/4 length. I loved the dress and am already thinking about renting it again for an event next weekend.

Tons of compliments in this comfortable LBD. I rented this for a rehearsal dinner and it was perfect for the occasion- classy and elegant. Fabric has a bit of stretch, but not clingy which made me even more confident in my look.

This dress is awesome!
I rented the M and L, since i'm 6 months postpartum and so body is still fluctuating. The L fit my hips a lot better than the M, which was a little tighter, so i'm glad i ordered it. This dress feels FABULOUS on. The fabric is a little thicker, but I don't think that it's too heavy, at least not in air conditioning. I like the little bit of gathered panel in the front, as it hides any kind of potential pooch you might have (or it just allows you to eat without worrying you'll look like you have a food baby!).

Perfect dress, spectacular fit, classy and unique
This is the best dress I've rented from RTR; if I could purchase it I would. It fit perfectly and was just right for my work's holiday party. It's classy but also unique and slightly sexy with the cutouts at the neck. I felt incredibly comfortable which is rare when I am dressed up. I received so many compliments!

Nice Black Dress
I didn't wear but not because of anything having to do with the dress. At the last minute, the event I'd rented it for changed to much more casual attire. This is one of those black dresses everyone either has or needs. With the sleeves, it's fairly conservative, but its openings help convey the message of some personality/spunk. The dress seemed a little worn - not overly noticeable to others but enough to where you'd look like you chose a dress from your closet. I say this because we all have times we want to wear a nice dress but don't want to appear as if we felt compelled to buy something new for the occasion. Since I always look for 00 or clothes that run small, with this being slightly big on me, I'd say it fits true to size. In addition, it's an easy style to wear and quite flattering.

Okay for a formal event
I had a holiday party/dinner to attend to and I wanted something formal that would keep me warm. This dress will definitely keep you warm...very warm. If you plan to do any dancing this may not be the dress to get. I ordered both a small and medium and because I am smaller on my top half the small seemed to be the better fit. I have a small bust so I'm not so sure how comfortable someone with a bigger bust would be in this dress as I found it to be quite snug at top. I also wore it with a strapless bra so I had no issues with straps showing through the holes. Quite frankly I didn't think there was anything special about this dress but it was good enough for the event I needed it for.

Great dress
This dress is very unique. Fabric is heavy and would be warm. Great for late fall, winter. It has some give in the waist because of pleats so can hide a little bit of belly. It has pockets which is awesome. The sleeves were very form fitting. The side cut out shows a bra strap so a convertible or stapless is necessary. The center cutout is very low and shows significant cleavage on a busty girl. I was going to a conservative event so I could not wear it because of that.

Wonderful LBD - just a little different from the rest of the pack
Loved this dress. Wore it to a school fundraiser. It was the right balance of looking great while not looking like I was trying too hard. I got lots of compliments, even a couple of days later. This is a dress I would consider buying since it is very versatile.

Great dress when you need to be conservative without being dowdy
Wore this to a fundraising event held by my husband's company. The dress was young and fun, while being conservative enough to wear for a serious night. The material is very stretchy, so there's a lot of give in all the areas you'd want it (chest, belly, hips)

fun, comfortable dress
This dress was great for a night out for dinner and drinks. I got the XS and small and the small was the winner. I liked all the details from the cut outs at the top, to the 3/4 sleeves, to the pockets (love actually!!), to the pleating in the tummy area which provided a little extra 'wiggle room' for dessert!

Easy to wear and extremely comfortable!
Rented this dress for a friend's 30th birthday and received so many compliments! The fit was perfect and I paired it up with some black tights and suede booties. The long sleeves were perfect for this time of year :) One thing, I had to make sure my bra strap was off to the side enough so it wouldn't show but you can also wear a strapless. PLUS this has POCKETS! Every dress should come with pockets!

Comfortable, elegant, flattering!
Got this dress as a replacement for one that became unavailable, and I absolutely LOVED it. The cutouts are sexy in an understated way, the fit was incredibly flattering, and the pockets were fabulous. You *may* have to wear a strapless bra, but I was able to just scootch my left bra strap over a bit for it not to show through the cutout. Perfect for my company's Holiday Party - conservative but still really chic, fun, and comfortable! Would love to own this one.

Simple yet sexy
The dress fit like a glove and I loved the pockets! It is very flattering in the mid section area. The only downside is that I had to wear a strapless bra so straps could not be seen through the decorative holes in the dress...really no big deal though. I loved the dress and would have gladly bought it! Classic and great wardrobe staple.

It was a little warm for Texas fall because of the thick material, but overall a great dress.
