I was really excited to get this dress for a party we were going to. It's so versatile that I wasn't worried about being too underdressed or overdressed. I received tons of compliments, and I'm contemplating finding it and purchasing it!

I am 5'4" and very flat up top with a Kardashian bottom. The 0 fit great in the bust but was slightly shorter than I prefer (to a company holiday party). The 2 was slightly loose in the bust but a better length. I ended up going with the 0 + some black tights. The beading is gorgeous and silver, it looked gold on my computer screen. Overall it was a great dress and a big hit! I had a great first experience with RTR.

Great dress for Vegas without being over the top!
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I really liked this dress because of the back - I'm a sucker for a racerback dress, but I also liked the v-neck. As a bustier person, I prefer deep necklines, as they elongate my neck and seem more flattering. I ended up wearing this in Vegas with coworkers and felt comfortable. It wasn't too short in heels (mid-thigh) and I was able to have fun without worrying about a tight dress, since it hides flaws well. I will definitely rent again!

I wore a smaller size in this dress because it was much looser than I expected. The fabric got a bit wrinkled by the end of the night, but it was a great little black dress with some sparkle.

Comfortable, classy dress to wear for dinner

Overall fit: True to Size

The beading detail on this dress is even better in person. The racerback was great for highlighting my athletic shoulders and back. Very comfortable dress but isn't too baggy. Pretty charcoal color. I normally wear a size 4 and that size fit perfectly.

Perfect for my occasion!
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Loved this dress! I wore it to a school formal in the winter and it was perfect for the occasion. I don't really have a waist, so the cinching around middle did an excellent job in giving me one. I LOVE the different back as well. The only thing that came as a surprise to me when I tried it on was that the dress has a bubble hem. I was able to iron it out because I though it just looked a little off on me, but that was my own personal preference. Actually tried to hunt it down to buy it I like it so much!

Sexy, but classy, this dress made for the PERFECT bachelorette party outing!!
Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I wore this dress for my sister's bachelorette party and it was perfect!! I normally wear a size 2, but after reading other reviews about this dress I decided to order a 0 as my backup. They both fit great, but the zero fit me a little better up top than the 2, so I wore the 0. It's not black, but it's a dark charcoal, which was really pretty. Got tons of compliments on it! VERY comfortable dress!!

I wore this for a fashion industry cocktail party.
Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Really comfortable fabric and fit. Fun to wear and easy to dance and move in! I felt like the overall style is slightly less formal and slightly more casual than a typical "cocktail dress" so I wouldn't have worn this to an affair that anyone would have worn a sequined dress to, but it worked for this particular party. Perfect for clubbing at an upscale bar or for a date night.

Simple and snazzy
Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was perfectly comfortable and so easy to wear. It is a bit short but was perfect on my 5'2" (on a good day) frame. It is a bit snug around the tail and hips but not about to bust open while sitting. It was really simple to accessorize this dress as the silver beading (though it looks gold in the picture) takes the place of a necklace. Black heels, dangle or stud earrings, and a favorite bracelet and you are set. Because I had to take a flight to get to the wedding and I was not about to carry this thing on-board, it was wrinkled beyond recognition by the time we arrived. It quickly and easily returned to its pre-flight state with a quick steamer application. Over all, I wish I owned this dress!

Rented this dress for a wedding in Austin and i LOVED the detail of the beading on the collar and the elegant rouching at just the right place in the waist. If i remember correctly, the color is not quite black, more of a deep navy.

Cute dress with a flaterring shape. Material is that suede like silk that can look shabby.
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
Rented this dress for a date night and it worked well with black tights and booties. Shape is very flattering but the material was looking a bit worse for the wear. Might have been dry cleaned too many times so the silk wasn't as vibrant.

Super cute dress - too snug in the hips!
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
This dress is adorable. I wish I had been able to order the 8 and the 10, but the 10 wasn't available. The 8 was way too snug on my hips. My friends owns this dress and its so fabulous on! Just keep an eye on the hip measurement. I'm usually an 8/10, so I would say it runs snug, but not necessarily too small.

wore this to a wedding and loved the embelishment around the neck.. the material had a really nice shimmer to it.. it did bunch a little around the midsection, so I would reccomend it to some one with a slimmer figure

I wore this to a vendor's cocktail party after work. It transitioned great from day to night with a switch of flats to heels. I received many compliments. And I felt very comfortable in it as it wasn't too revealing anywhere. The bead work at the top looks amazing in person. I would love to own this dress.

Overall fit: True to Size

I'd describe this dress as "cute and fun", but probably not "sexy". The beading at the neckline is pretty, and then racerback adds an interesting element. The hem was a little "bunchy" and almost looked like a bubble skirt, which wasn't too flattering on me.

Pretty dress but snug
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small

The dress itself was very pretty, but I have hips and it was too around the hip area. The 8 was the only size available and I think the 10 would have looked great. Definitely size up if you are curvy!

Would have been a cute dress, the fabric and shape are nice. But *very* short. The top also was unflatteringly snug on my chest, and I'm only a B cup. Couldn't wear it to the wedding like I was hoping to-- very disappointed!

I rented this dress to wear to a wedding and I was so excited, but the neck line on me did not lay right. It bunched up and didnt look right. I ended up wearing my back up dress! It does run true to size but the bust can be big. I am a 6 but the bust fit me better in the 4 (I am a 34B).

Although I would say this dress runs true to size, it fit a little strangely. I am an apple shape and found that the skirt was a little narrow, and the top was a little baggier. Picking a larger size for the skirt would have made the top far too large. It turned out to look really good for my friend's wedding. Unfortunately, it developed a hole in the side where the belt is attached. The stitching then unraveled, to where the hole got to be noticeable. All said and done, it's a great looking dress that had some construction problems.

I'm 5'1, 115, B cup and 0 fit perfectly. A little longer on me than on the model (duh) but still hit a few inches above the knee. Like other reviewers have said, the color is kind of charcoal/black but it's very pretty and I received several compliments.

I really liked this dress. I wore it for a winter cocktail dance and it was beautiful and conservative, perfect for all occasions! I ordered a size 4 and 2 and ended up wearing the 2 because it fit better in the waist and bust. Definitely a flattering dress for narrower waists.

This was a little too loose on me in the waste, but still very pretty. I rented this dress as a back up and ultimately did not wear it. If the fit had been a little snugger in the waste, I would have. Very pretty, simple and elegant dress.

This was a dress I rented but did not end up wearing. The armpits are a little small and it is definitely for smaller chested women. The fabric is unique, kind of like a pressed suede so it's not as dark of black as pictured.

Really cute dress, understated and elegant. The black color is more of a charcoal up close. Wear your hair up to show off the back and in my opinion, this would be killer with a nice red lipstick. Very comfortable.
