Size & Fit

WAIST: Not fitted - shift style is not fitted at the waist
HIPS: Fitted - curvier women should consider sizing up for full hips
LENGTH: Mid-thigh - (on a 5'5" model)

UNDERGARMENTS: Should be worn with a NuBra due to the exposed back
FABRIC: Fabric has some stretch
GREAT FOR: All body types
(Model's height is 5'10".)

Lots of compliments.. and so much fun to dance in!
I ordered this dress at the last minute for a wedding and although I was very pleased with RTR in terms of service and quality, I was disappointed at how large it runs! I definitely would not consider it a "mini shift". It's a tad too long and very wide in the waist. Although I was tempted to return it, I really didn't have much time to get another. After speaking with a RTR associate, I decided to pair it with a thin black patent belt to compensate for the ill fit. It worked like a charm- shortened the length, cinched the waist, and gave it a subtle blouson. It spiced up the dress, and I received a ton of compliments. Overall, it was a cute dress and very fun to wear.

This dress was perfect for a black-tie gala i attended recently. Looked great with black tights and ankle booties. Very comfortable and chic. I got a lot of compliments - I would recommend renting it to anyone!

Beautiful dress
I loved this dress! I have never worn a shift dress and I am used to a more form fitting dress, so this was a different look for me, but it was beautiful.

Dress was flattering, comfortable and renting was a breeze!
I wore this to my sister's bachelorette party.Truly a great dress SO flattering. It was very forgiving in the tummy area and thick enough i didn't feel self conscious about not wearing a bra. It was in the winter an we were bar hopping so the long sleeves were perfect. It was short enough that it was still sexy and the keyhole in the back was unexpected and fun! I am 5'1" and although it could have been shorter while standing it tended to ride up a tad when walking or dancing so the length was perfect for me but tall girls be warned:)

I wasn't in the door 5 minutes and a woman complimented me!
I loved this dress, was complimented as soon as I walked in the door. I took the advice of another customer and belted with a thin black belt, since the middle of the dress is a little loose. The belt gave me more of a figure and shortened it a bit, which was perfect since I'm short. It was warm, but not hot and didn't itch at all since the entire dress is lined. Wish I could have kept it!

Easy and comfortable fit
I ordered this dress last minute for my holiday party at work and I receive the dress the same day (NYC) and it was perfect. While it was great that they provided Hollywood Double-sided tape, it was not needed at all for my 5'4'' medium frame.

Nice dress
This dress no doubt runs large for athletic women... I got S and XS and S would require to wear a belt like other reviewers said or it hangs like a potato sack. The smaller size fits exactly like on the model just a little longer. The selves might be too tight in the beginning but in one hour I got used to it, and the room was dark so nobody could tell. Overall very sexy dress, I will rent it again. The back slit is very beautiful. Get the sticking Nu-bra or go bra-less .

Dress fit great!
I just wore this dress for New Years Eve and it was gorgeous! I ordered a Large and a Medium and ended up wearing the medium. Based on the measurements, I should have been a large, but it ran big. I'm pretty tall and it was safely at mid-thigh, it might be a little long on someone shorter. The sequins are very classy and the back of the dress was my favorite part. Highly recommend this dress!

The x-small dress was a cute fit in the body but the arms were really tight. The small ran quite big.

Classy & comfy party dress
Wore this to a NYE party and really loved it. Classy and a little sassy with the open back! Definitely fits loosely in the middle but was actually very flattering and extremely comfortable. I'd recommend sizing down if you order a back-up size.

Great party dress!
I LOVED this dress. I rented it for my bachelorette party. I'm 5'4, 107 lb and this XS fit very well: fitted in the sleeves, hit mid thigh. The slit in the back is a great extra pop. Got tons of compliments!

Everyone was distracted by the beautiful dress they didn't even notice my growing waistline!
I needed something for a friend's engagement party. At 22 weeks pregnant, I was looking for something sexy but forgiving enough to hide my tiny pooch. The dress was an absolute hit - I got compliment after compliment, especially about the open back. It was comfortable, warm for our "chilly" Florida winter, and just enough sexy while still being subtle and classy. I'd wear this again and again. It's so beautiful you don't have to accessorize much. The arms weren't tight but there wasn't much wiggle room so if you're heavier on top, just be aware that the arms might be fitted. If you want to show some leg, get this dress!

I love R2R! Always a wonderful experience! From the personal assistance regarding fitting of a dress, to the fun little samples (Dior mascara <3)...they can never go wrong!
This fabulous dress fit like a glove! I couldn't believe how great I felt and how perfect it fit. I rarely find a dress that fits my petite figure (5'3") and this dress truly made me feel gorgeous!

Gorg Dress, Great Experience.
Absolutely loved this dress! Got tons of compliments. The length was a bit long on me, coming just above the knee, but that is to be expected when you're only 5'1. The dress had a bit of a loser fit on it than the model so it was really figure flattering. All in all it was an excellent experience.

Perfect Amount of Sassy
I wore this dress for my bachelorette party with nude heels. The dress was amazing - loose around the stomach and tight in the legs for the perfect fit. I'm 5'2 so the dress came mid-thigh. I felt incredible all night and received many compliments from friends and strangers at the bar. Would absolutely rent again!

I don't know how this happened but we only took one picture the entire night. Sorry you cant really see the dress but take my word for it, its amazing
I got this dress for my 21st birthday in Vegas and I loved it! At first I was leery about the bra situation because I'm a 34 F so bras are always necessary, but I just bought a bra with a cute back and rocked it, it is Vegas after all I don't think bra straps are the most offensive thing there. I found that the dress fit great up top but was a little shapeless around the middle. The dress fell to about 3 inches above my knee so I shortened it with the fabric tape RTR provided (great thinking RTR). I ordered the mystery accessory and got these lovely crystal feather earrings, they're beautiful trust me, and bought some crystal bangles. I got complements all night from random strangers and not just drunk guys, girls came up to me too! This was my first experience with RTR and definitely won't be my last!

i'm thinking about this dress for vegas too... boobs aren't that big but i'm hesistant because of the bra
JenDecember 20, 2016
I am considering buying this dress but am trying to figure out sizing M or L. I am about 140 and 5&quot;10....see you went with the L but you look so skinny!:) Did the L fit ok ?

I have a fantasy about being able to wear sheath dresses but unfortunately, being a larger busted person, it is not in the cards for me. The dress was beautiful. Maybe in another life I will be taller with a smaller bust!

RTR always keeps me from getting stressed out about my outfits!
I rented this dress in navy about 4 months ago for a formal event and absolutely loved it! When I entered a pageant this past month, I knew it was the exact look I wanted for my talent. The dress sparkled on stage and I received so many compliments on it. Keep in mind that this is a shift dress and it is suppose to fit larger than normal.

This is an awesome dress. it fits well in all the right places, and the slit at the back is a perfect accent. The sleeves are longer than pictured on the model.

At the VMAS, the photographer said I was the best dressed! (not including celebrities of course).
I wore this dress for the VMAs in Los Angeles and got so many compliments! I got an XS and S, and I ended up wearing the XS for a more snug, fitted look. It's sooo comfortable, looks great on, and the sequins are very nicely sewn. Typically I find with sequin dresses that the sequins tend to fall or the sewing isn't very good, but this dress was to die for! The XS was perfect for me as I'm not very tall and tend to wear tighter fitting dresses. Perfect for award shows, parties, etc.

this dress was amazing ! it was the perfect little black dress. I got compliments all night long.
the back is the best part of this dress. it shows the perfect amount of skin. I always like the 3/4 length sleeves. the dress is a tad bit long though.

Was unable to wear it to the event.
The XS was too small and the S was too big. Dress looked more form fitting on the model than in real life. Hangs straight down from bust. Only appropriate for evening b/c completely covered in sequins.

Dress showed up on time and in great packaging. This is my first RTR experience and it was great!
Dress is VERY baggy in the midsection. It's more boxy than form fitting so was easy to move in and comfortable. There was a big difference between the medium and the large. I'm 5'10" and the medium was too short. Sequins were surprisingly not itchy, but I stuck to everyone! I had to wear my hair up because it stuck to the dress. Over all, I got a lot of compliments and I enjoyed how comfortable it was.
TaylorNovember 13, 2012
What type of bra did you wear with it? I'm have a very large bust and I just don't see it working with a regular bra.
RTR CustomerNovember 13, 2012
Hi Taylor! We suggest wearing the Nu Bra with this dress! It is comfortable and works if you have a larger bust as well.
KateNovember 13, 2012
I wore sticky boobs that I bought from target. My roommate has a large bust as well and they don't work for her, but worked well for me! There's no back lining and you can stick them so that you are shaped correctly. Hope this helps!

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to wear this dress...
I rented this Tibi dress for a friend's Bachelorette Party. I couldn't decide between the Black and Navy so I ordered a Medium in Black and a Large in Navy. Due to Superstorm Sandy, only the Large in Navy was shipped to me. I'm giving this 5 stars because the Stylists I talked to were extremely apologetic and helpful!!! Fantastic service despite a power outage!!! I really hope to rent this dress for another occasion in the future!!! Please see my review of this dress in Navy!!!

Adorable shift, sequin detail, open back, HOT HOT HOT!
I loved this shift dress!! I wore it to a bachelorette party and it was perfect! It was a chilly night so the long sleeves were perfect and I did NOT wear a bra with it because of the open back. The lining was enough to hold my chest in however if you have a larger chest I would definitely recommend a sticky bra. I wore black sheer pantyhose and black booties, but only because it was cold...I would have worn no stalkings and nude platforms if not. I ordered the S and the XS but the XS fit snug in a good way so iI chose it over the S. I would definitely recommend this dress!!

LOVED this dress!!! Super comfy, just a bit hot
Dress was stunning! I wore it to a black tie gala for Kroenke Sports, and got a ton of compliments! There were a lot of people, so the long sleeves were a bit too hot, but other than that no complaints. It does run big, I wore the small, and usually always wear a medium. Would wear it again for a different event.

Cute dress and amazingly comfortable.
I don't have large breasts, but I have a wide chest (about 39 inches); therefore, the medium-sized dress back did not drape well on me. But the large looked droopy, so I went with the look.

This was the perfect winter/holiday party dress.
I always run between a 4 and 6 in Tibi dresses, but ended up wearing the Medium. The sleeves on the small felt really tight and they looked a little short. I loved that the sequins on this dress weren't super shiny either. It felt more sophisticated compared to some disco-ball like sequined dresses.
