Not flattering
This was my first pick dress; thank god I got a second choice! It looks pretty in the picture, but on me, it was far from flattering. The skirt didn't billow out like in the pic, instead fell flat, and the back is a mesh material that would make wearing a bra impossible.

Little Black Dress with a contemporary twist. I received so many compliments on this best LBD!
Extremely true to size. The bottom of the dress is a different material from the top. At first I was really skeptical, but when I tried it on, it looked spectacular.

The dress was very small. I'm very busty (36D) and the top doesn't allow for it.
It was very short and very thin fabric. Not forgiving in the least. I probably wouldn't rent thus again.

Took chic to the next level in this Thakoon style. Wore it to RTR's Our Runway Launch Party.
Runs true to size. The back is sheer so you cannot wear a normal bra. Purchased Braza's Petal Pushers to get the coverage I needed.

Fun Dress- not my favorite but still received tons of compliments!
I enjoyed wearing this dress however the top of the dress is a very thin jersey material that just looked kind of cheap. The waist is very cinched so I recommend definitely getting a back up size. I wore nude shoes with silver jewelry and a patterned Marc Jacobs clutch. I still received plenty of compliments on the dress however this was not my favorite dress from RTR. The experience with my rental went smoothly as usual and I will continue to rent rent rent!!

Loved this dress! It was perfect for my formal dinner with a little sexy flair.
Make sure to take the dress out of the bag and fluff the skirts out before putting it on. It will help keep the overall shape of the dress.

Beautiful dress. Got a lot of compliments on the sheer back.
The dress does pull in quite close in the waist, making the zipper a little difficult to work with (you might need an extra set of hands). Otherwise, fit well throughout and was very comfortable to wear.

Cute
I liked the dress and material overall, the top part was not as structured as I would have preferred and a little baggy as I am petite and do not have a long torso. I liked the dress and it got great accolades at the holiday party I wore it too.

Beautiful
Everything about the dress reigned true when received my rental. I am a curvy 4 and this dress fit perfectly, especially in the places I was most concerned with. Touch of girls with lots of sexiness with the sheer back and the right accessories.

I ordered a size 6 and 8 in this dress - after ordering, I heard from Jocelyn (who was extremely friendly and helpful) that only the 8 was available. She sent me the size 8 of my original order and then another dress of my choice as a backup - I will definitely use RTR again!
I loved wearing this dress for a evening cocktail attire wedding - the top was really a comfortable cotton material and the back with the sheer chiffon was beautiful. The skirt ran a little short for me since I have such a long torso, but it didn't feel an uncomfortable length. I usually wear a 6 in dresses, but they only had the size 8 available - it still fit/wore great! I would recommend this dress to anyone who is looking for classy yet fun dress for a night out!

Hi Alissa! First off, you look fabulous! Secondly, did you end up going with a backless bra? Just trying to figure the details out before renting. Thanks!

The dress was for a date with my boyfriend. He complimented the dress, as did my mom.
So this was my first RTR rental and I was happy with the prompt delivery. The size was a bit off but that is somewhat expected I guess since I'm pretty short. Specifically the top half of the dress was too big but the bottom half was fitted and went down to my knee. Another disappointment was that the fabric on top seem a bit worn out--like I should be the last person to wear this dress before its retired. The skirt was in good shape however. Overall, I was satisfied but I think that's because I was able to rent this dress for free.

This dress is extremely comfortable and flattering. And the sheer back makes it a little bit edgier!
I rented this for a black tie gala and it was absolutely my favorite RTR rental to date! I am a big fan of classic LBD and the sheer back on this dress makes it a little extra special. The fit is extremely flattering (the bubble skirt and waistline really cinch you in). I received so many compliments and really REALLY loved this dress. I would recommend it very highly.

Perfect LBD!
I rented this dress for an evening out in the city and it was absolutely stunning. The fit is extremely flattering by being so cinched at the waist, and the full skirt does a good job of hiding imperfections. While it really gives you that perfect hourglass shape, the most memorable thing about this dress is the back - so sexy and elegant at the same time. Note the fabric of the skirt is very prone to wrinkles, and the top front part, while not being as sheer as the back, is not completely opaque so unless you're going on a very aggressive date, definitely wear a NuBra or equivalent. I accessorized the dress with RTR's Deep Blue Drop Earrings by Kenneth Jay Lane and Black Python Clutch by Kara Ross, added my own Wolford peacock tights and black ankle booties, and voilà! I received many compliments (and sideways looks), and I'm sure you will too.

Hi! I'm a similar bust size, and I was just wondering what you did for a bra? Trying to figure out what I'll need to do prior to renting.

Someone told me I was pretty enough to be a Pan Am girl in the 1960s.
Great NYE dress. Very comfortable. I fit in perfectly with the posh NY venue. My only complaint is the clips in the neck kept getting stuck in my hair.

spinning in the skirt!
the dress was stunning. I was worried the front would be more sheer when i unwrapped it, but i was able to wear it braless and it was opaque. got so many compliments. I wore it to a 40s themed work holiday party and even though the dress is modern the stitching on the bodice and the full taffeta skirt makes it retro.

I am 134lbs 5'7. This dress fit perfect and was good to dance in! The top is semi sheer as well as the front! I wore it with a purple bra to make it pop a little! It is definately a beautiful dress!

Definitely a cute dress, but it's not exactly the most flattering for petite sizes. The top is very thin, so bra choice is very important! The zipper is poorly made and very difficult to work with. I love the material on the skirt portion. The dress has a lot of potential to be fabulous, but it just didn't work the way I hoped it would.

This dress is not for a petite person. Hourglass, yes, petite - no. If you're short it doesn't fit right - the top half doesn't blouse as you would expect it to. Also, I didn't realize that the material on the top half was different from the skirt but it is...I didn't like the contrast when I got it. I felt it made it look a bit cheap.

Id call this one the naughty and nice dress! Its super cute and "nice" in the front with a modest top and cute full skirt. Turn around and you get a little naughty with the sheer panel in the back! So I wore this dress with a black bra because Im small chested and wanted to have a little umph in the front (and give you more naughty when you see my bra!) I wore this to dinner with my girls in NYC with a pair of cheetah booties. Super hot. Best surprise for me- check out the details in the waist! I usually wear a 0 or 2 and I opted for the 0 and it worked just fine!
