An absolute stunner!

I was so nervous about renting this dress since it had no reviews but I just had to get it. I am so happy I did because this dress was simply stunning. It fit like a glove and was incredibly flattering. I did not wear a bra and was quite comfortable, but I can't say how that would work for larger busted women. The fabric is pretty thick and has some stretch to it, so there is some control. The sheer back is gorgeous, I received compliments all night. I ordered a size "0" and "2", but went with the "0" as the sheer part crinkled on the larger size. I wore 3.5" heels and the regular length was perfect. For a black dress, this one turns heads!

Beautiful dress!

This was my first time using RTR and I am beyond thrilled at the experience. I wore the size 4 and the dress was perfect fit and length for me 5'3" 128 lbs. The back is so sexy and was the perfect dress for our black tie event.

Elegant gown, great fit

I'm 5'9 and the dress fell right to my toes. If I had worn high heels I would have needed the long. Dress for like a glove otherwise, I'd definitely rent it again.

Being able to wear at least one of the gowns

This dress fit perfectly, and I'm glad because the other dress I had ordered ended up damaged. I was stuck in it for over 2 hours. This dress on the other hand fit very nice, I'm bummed that I don't have a picture. I ordered the 2r as well, but I'm a bit short so this one fit better as far as the length went. A little suggestion please double check your garments before even trying them on, the other dress I got the zipper was previously damaged and I ended up getting stuck in it. And the one I wore also had a couple of defects. Just so you could let RTR know before hand. This was my first time using RTR, so I was bummed about the getting stuck incident, but glad I was able to wear at least one of the dresses.

I received so many compliments from people at the wedding, young and old! Very fun dress!

I'm 5'10 so I'm always worried about things being too short, but the 2L was absolutely perfect. I also usually wear a size 4 and took a chance with the 2 and it paid off. Material is somewhat stretchy so it's very comfortable. I loved being fashionable and wearing a statement dress but also being covered at the same time to be respectful of the wedding. Great choice!

Many Compliments

I am 5'9 and 138 lbs and size 4 Regular fit me perfect. I am a 34D and I feel like this dress is made for someone with a smaller cup size. I wouldn't have gone up a size because it fit so nice everywhere else, but this dress was very tight in my chest causing it to be tight under arms as well. It was a beautiful and comfortable dress and I would highly recommend it!

Classic and Sexy

I'm 5'11'' and 160lbs with a curvier middle and D chest. I went with the 10L for fear my boobs would spill out, although I probably could have done the 8L; there is so much room in the chest and the v-cut is higher to accommodate bustier figures. The material is thick- very forgiving for a dress that does not allow shapewear- and insanely comfortable! Use with a backless push up bra and bright gold jewelry to help lighten out such heavy fabric. A "business in the front, party in the back" dress! Definitely a showstopper.

Felt so glamorous!

This was sent to me because the original dress I chose was damaged, but I am so happy! This dress made me feel so glamorous and classic. It fit really well. The only negative was I felt uncomfortable not being able to wear a bra. I used fashion tape but with a d chest it was still a little off. Otherwise everything couldn't have been more perfect.

Loved the ease of the process. This was the perfect dress for a black tie gala.

Dress arrived on time and fit perfectly. Only negative was that the inside seams were really frayed and there were a lot of loose threads hanging from the hem. Otherwise, absolutely LOVED the dress!

Beautiful dress! So comfortable and very flattering. Tons of compliments all night long!

Absolutely loved this dress and would recommend it to anyone going to a formal occasion. The fabric is thick enough to be flattering with no need for a bra. Probably could have gone a size down, but fit well nonetheless. This dress is beautiful and sleek from the front with a fun but classy surprise in the back. Only thing to consider is you can't wear any type of spanx with the low back!

Elegant gown for formal December wedding

Loved this dress! This was my first RTR rental and I was very impressed with how easy it was. The dresses came in a nice garment bag and I only had to do a little ironing on the very bottom of the dress. I ordered the 2R and 4R and wore the 4. I am 5'6" and wore about 3 inch heels and the dress was just off the ground. It was perfect so I didn't have to worry about holding it while dancing and it didn't drag. The dress is fitted at the hips but not uncomfortable at all. Sitting/dancing was fine. I wore one of the sticky front bras but am small chested and probably could have gotten away going bra less. The back of the dress is stunning! Definitely recommend for a formal affair! Everyone said it was very elegant!

Awesome dress for black tie flower show gala

This was a great dress. When I ordered it they only had a 4 regular and I wanted a 4 long as a back up. I am 5'7" and 130 lbs, the 4 was a perfect size for me, but the regular length was a little short. I ended up wearing 2 inch heels and the dress was just a little short- but when I was walking around it wasn't as noticeable. Overall a fun dress, I got lots of compliments through the night and felt like a sophisticated but very sexy fun dress!

Absolutely perfect! Not at all disappointed.

I have a very slender frame, especially in my midsection, and worried that the open back would not hug properly and the front would bulge in the belly region. This dress proved all of that wrong! It lightly hugged in all the right places. The sheer back gives it a great edge without sacrificing class! The length was also great. In the picture, I am not wearing shoes but with 4 inch heels, the dress still just swept the floor! I absolutely did not want to send this one back.

This dress made me feel so glamorous.

I wore this dress for a Military ball, the dress was so classy. It was black, not super low cut but enough to show some skin, and the sheer back was still sexy and classy. It really accented my hips and backside, but again it was classy. It was so comfortable and so easy to dance. I would recommend this dress for anyone, it's just the right balance of sexy and classy. This dress fits true to size, and was perfect length with a 3 1/2 inch heel.

Gorgeous dress, slim fit and cut beautifully.

Unfortunately I could not wear this dress because I was sent the regular instead of the long. It hit above my ankles and didn't look right. If it had hit the ground it would have been my first choice. I'm a 6 but the 8 hit my curves in the right places and wasn't too tight.

Dress fit great and was figure flattering

The only reason why this dress didn't get 5 stars is because it did come damaged. I was able to do a quick fix and I received tons of compliments. I will definitely use RTR again for my next formal event!

Elegant and sexy; insanely flattering on an hourglass figure

I adored this dress! It was comfortable and figure-flattering; I received compliments all night long. As a curvy lady, I was a bit nervous about the low back prohibiting a bra and Spanx. Neither were necessary! The dress is cut beautifully, accentuating curves and slimming in the right places. I haven't gone without a bra in a dress since 2004; I wore pasties but other than that I was impressed that I felt covered and secure. Great fit! I'm 5'7" and wore the 6R with three inch heels. The length was perfect at that, but I would suggest grabbing a long if your heels are any higher. I highly recommend this dress - you will feel sexy, elegant, and wonderful all night!

helpful in trying to get my original sized dress & sent a could backups to be sure I was satisfied

They didn't have my size so I went a size up but even that fit great. I had a little problem with the original sized dress not being able to come in but if you call the company, they are very helpful in making sure you're satisfied and even send a couple backup dresses. I'm pretty self conscious about my stomach so for those who are the same way, I'd recommend this dress because it's tight but in a flattering way. The material is thick enough to where it gives curves to places I was self conscious about. I'm also self conscious about my broad shoulders but it was not obvious at all in this dress. Received tons of compliments and would highly recommend this dress.

Loved the back!!

The fit is true to size. I had to wear my back up size (the size up) as the 4L was returned late or damaged and could not be shipped to me. The 6 was definitely a little big in the torso as seen in the blurry back picture, the sheer fabric wrinkled a bit. It didn't do that when I stood straight. The fabric of the dress is very forgiving and was perfect given no shape-wear can be worn under it. It does run short! I wore kitten heels and you can see the bottom is a good 2 inches from the floor. A 6L was not an option, but would have been preferable. Otherwise a gorgeous dress!!

The dress fit perfectly and was even a great length!

I was able to wear a small wedge which made my feel comfortable for the night. Also the dress was fitted but not too tight, although not ideal for the large dinner I ate! I didn't need to wear a bra but had the stick on kind and it looked good.

Everyone loved this dress, including me. Fit perfectly

I'm 5'4" 125 and the 4p was just right. I'm older so I was worried about the no bra issue but that was fine. It's tight enough to hold the girls up but it's comfortable, and the front is lined so no embarrassing bumps. I loved it.

I got so many compliments all night, I loved this dress!

Very comfortable and the thick fabric makes it very forgiving. I didn't even need to wear a bra. Only thing I didn't think of was that the open back doesn't allow you to wear spanx which I would have liked. I'm 5'3" and it was a little too long even with 4" heels.

Outrageously comfortable & beautiful!

This dress was spectacular. I was worried to rent because I am usually a 6, but there was no backup 8 to rent just incase so I had to take my chances on just the 6. I'm 5'3" & 145 lbs with a booty and 34C. This dress fit like a glove. I planned to wear a sticky bra, but did not even have to. It was so comfortable and flattering! Danced the night away!

Perfect for the black tie wedding I went to! Got tons of compliments. This was my first experience and it was a good one! Fits pretty snug but that's what I was looking for. I'm 5'1" and 115lbs. The dress was long and so I had to wear high heels to keep it off the floor. LOVE LOVE LOVE!!

Glamorous dress was the icing on a great night!

I absolutely loved this dress! It has great movement at the bottom that photos obviously can't capture but that is really lovely. The back is the perfect mix of sexy and classy and the v-neck made this small-chested girl feel less flat. It was the perfect length for 3 inch heels and I danced all night in it. The material also never wrinkled. I was stopped all night by people I'd never met to be told how much they loved my dress. I will definitely rent again with RTR and this dress as well as the customer service are the reason why. I cannot wait to rent again!

Redefining simple black dresses

The cut, the thick and slimming material, THE BACK. This was comfortable and surprisingly such a wow factor dress. The cut is so flattering, great for curvy babes, and the sheer back is a true show stopper. It's so simple but beyond flatteringly. Couldn't recommend more.

Sexy and sophisticated

The dress was perfect for a black tie wedding. The material was light weight enough for an outdoor wedding and super fun to dance in. Bonus is the dress really hugs you in all the right places but shows off your curves in all the right ways. The only reason I didn't give it five stars is because the front is a little high up and didn't do much for me but the back definitely gives you the wow factor!

Stunning dress!

Wore this for my sweet 16 debutant ball. It came in a 6r because the 4r had been returned damaged. The 6r ran a bit big for me, it dragged on the floor, the front hung down a lot (thank god for boob tape), and the open back was a bit low so I had to be conscious of my underwear choice. Otherwise it was a perfect gown! It gave me a nice hourglass shape and it was simple but stood out from everyone else's!!!

Perfect fit and length!

I rented a black gown as a backup dress for a formal wedding and what I ordered came back damaged so they sent me this and another to try instead. I ended up wearing this. It was perfectly classy with some sex appeal. The length was perfect! I felt like a million dollars! So happy they sent this for me!

Most gorgeous dress I've ever worn!

I absolutely loved this dress! I'm 5'2 and the petite was the perfect length with 3 inch heels. The dress is really well made and a little heavy but has enough stretch that it was really comfortable all night long- even for dancing! The back is stunning and the dress really hugs your curves in just the right way. I wore a sticky bra but if you are small chested you could probably go without one. I rented this for a black tie wedding and got compliments the entire night. I've never felt more beautiful and glamorous as I did in this dress and didn't want to take it off! I can't wait to rent this again.
