Flattering and comfortable
This dress was worn to my corporate holiday party. The material is thick and hides flaws. It also kept me warm.

after-hours work event, dressy but not too formal, this was perfect
The fit was true to size (my normal size, not something like J.Crew that always seems to run one size smaller.) I'm 5'4+" and 115 lbs, a bit thick in the waist, and took a size 6. I wanted a nice dress that was a bit on the warm side because I knew the venue would be cold, and this was perfect. Long sleeves and a sort of padded/quilted torso.

Perfect Dress for a Winter Event
The material was almost scuba-like, which was warm and great for walking around in freezing Chicago. The fit is pretty tight in the shoulders and waist, though the sleeves weren't which was good for movement. Loved the length and the curved edges. Also got the size 2 for backup and there was barely a difference between it and the 0 so if you're worried about the shoulders or waist being snug in particular, sizing up probably won't affect the other areas much.

Wore this for my law firm's holiday party. If it hadn't been for work I would have worn the smaller
This cuts in on the waist - it's very tight there and the zipper kind of sticks there. Not the most comfortable dress, but it worked!

Beautiful but runs small
I loved this dress, but I ordered the 4, which I normally wear, and ended up wearing a 6. It was very tight but I think it's supposed to fit that way. I have wider hips. So I'd say size up if you're a pear shape like myself. Overall, beautiful dress.

Simple, Classic LBD
As everyone else has said, it runs small and has no stretch. Heavy material and very warm. I bought this on clearance and will actually have it altered to fit better. Zipper gets stuck easily!

Absolutely Loved this!
There is something about a long sleeve mini dress that just gets me. This dress is a nice thick textured material. It was perfect for a winter party. It is a little shorter in the back then the front. I would rent it again.

Very comfortable and flattering.
I loved this dress for a holiday party in January when it was very cold. The material is thick and warm. Great length, I'm pretty short but the arm length was perfect! Both of the dresses that I received were very difficult to zip, and I mean very. It took me and my husband about 20 minutes to zip. The size 2 fit but I ended up wearing the 4 to be more comfortable.

I rented this for New Year's Eve, but I wasn't able to wear it.
I read the reviews from the other girls and noticed that it ran a little small. My normal dress size is a 4, so I ordered my backup size of 6 thinking it would be perfect. I tried on the 6 first and I could get it on, but it was so tight that it was unflattering. I could barely move my legs to take a step. This may not be the case for everyone, I definitely have a small torso and a larger bottom and legs, so this dress didn't work for me. Another thing to consider is that it has absolutely NO stretch. It really does feel like wet suit material. It was a beautiful dress and I'm disappointed I wasn't able to wear it.

Was too small in the bust, so I could not wear it. Did not fit like a size 10 dress,
Was so tight that I could not get the zipper up. Fabric and texture were wonderful, but I never got to wear it cuz was so small.

The wedding was at a winery during the winter so this was both classy and appropriate.
This dress is definitely warm. I didn't think it was so much of the scuba material as described but more of a bed quilt material. I ordered a 2 and a 4 since a lot of the reviews said it runs small but I ended up wearing the 2 which fit perfectly! I'm petite so the dress was an appropriate length, no tights needed. I would definitely recommend this dress.

Great, different Little Black Dress
Very thick material which creates a great figure. Dress is a little short and I did have to consistently pull it down while dancing.

Too small!
Ordered this dress for a wedding and was really excited but it ended up being WAYY too small! I wear a 4-6 and ordered a 6 and 8 - both were way too small. I would recommend ordering 2 sizes up. Unfortunately had to return this.

Perfect for a winter wedding!
This dress was awesome. Definitely didn't want to give it back. The sleeves were a bit on the short side, but it wasn't a problem to scrunch them up and add a couple bracelets.

It was a charity event and tons of money was raised for Hospice!
This dress runs very small. I usually wear a 0 and ended up wearing the 4. After reading all of the reviews I'm so glad I went with a 2 & 4. The 4 fit perfectly! It's a very warm dress & looked great with nude heels.

As the reviews state, runs small. Great dress - fit me well. It was a great length on me (I'm 5'1) but may be too short on taller people.

I wore this to my holiday party, and it was a perfect fit, cut, and level of elegance!
The fit was great. The dress is cut to accent your curves, and the material is great for winter weather. The zipper got stuck because of the thicker material, but other than that the dress was great.

Warm LBD
I rented this for date night and heard it ran small so I got my usual size 4 and a size 6. I ended up wearing the size 6 which fit perfectly. I wish i owned this dress. Its thick material made for a warm night out. I got a compliment immediately when I entered the restaurant and wish I had taken a picture... but I'm awful at pictures. I got a the RJ GRAZIANO Falling Teardrops Necklace to go with it and it was perfect. I wore the dress with a pair of black suede platform heels and it looked AMAZING! Overall I would rate this dress a 10. Slimming, warm, beautiful, and like no other.

SIZE UP!
If you are pear shaped, size up two sizes! I could get the 10 (one size up from my normal size) on but there was NO WAY it was zipping. The dress is beautiful I wish I could have worn it!

I wasn't having great luck with my RTR dresses
I wasn't having great luck with my RTR dresses so I decided to rent a dress that looked pretty to me but that had lower reviews and I'm glad I did. Maybe my taste is different from the average reviewer as I thought this dress was great. I got a 4 without a backup size and needed a 6. Had I got the 6 this probably would have been a 5 star dress. It's short, but so am I. It's hot but the weather is cold. The pattern is lovely and I received two compliments on it which is two more than I've received in any other RTR dress. This dress is unique and looks expensive. Many of the RTR dresses look like something I could pick up at my local department store but not this one, this one is special.

Felt hip & edgy, perfect for the Christmas party I was at.
Rode up a little bit when I was dancing, other than that fit perfectly. Wasn't too hot in the long sleeves. Good balance between showing a lot of leg.

Tasteful LBD
I really like this dress - the fit was perfect. I wore it for my anniversary dinner. I wore a size 2 and I normally wear a 0 or 2, depending on the style and the designer (I did not get a size 0 to compare, as they were out, but I'm inclined to say the dress runs a little small). The fabric is "thick" and not stretchy, but I found it very comfortable. My arms are not particularly thin, and I thought the sleeves fit well - not too tight and not too loose. Nor were they too long, which is obviously sometimes a problem for short women like me! I was specifically looking for something warm (cold climate) and somewhat subdued (knew I'd be more dressed up than others at the restaurant). The dress is very pretty up-close. It's not something that people are probably going to stop you and give you compliments on because it's pretty straightforward and simple but if you're looking for a nice, tasteful LBD, it's a great choice - particularly in the winter or cooler climates. It's short and form fitting, so it's not dowdy or frumpy. The front hem has an interesting subtle swoop, too, which I don't think I noticed in the photos.

This looked great and I received many, many compliments. Classic but sexy. Rental price is down.
I ordered both the 6 and size 8 and the 8 fit. Very convenient to be able to order two sizes with no extra charge. My only complaint was that it was a little too short for my age.

This dress was so fun and perfect for my event. It was a work party and again everyone loved it. It was a little tight around my hips, but fortunately I didn't need to bend over very much so it wasn't a problem :) The material was great and I loved the sleeves.

Nice but Thick Material
I'd suggest this for winter because I wore it in March and felt too warm! The shoulders were a bit too broad for me, but the length was fine. I wish you could see the different patterns like in the picture, but it all just looked black and plain!

Too small and short.
I ordered this with my first unlimited shipment in a size 10. Dress was waaaaay to small. The back was also very very very short. Was concerned that my butt was going to pop out when walking. Did not wear.

Classy, simple, sleek.
Definitely a snug fit but the fabric, color and style maintained a sleek and classy silhouette. Wore with d'Orsay black heels and geometric gold earrings. A beautiful, simple dress with a bit of an edge!
