Chic dress!
I loved this dress! It was very comfortable and fit like a glove! Perfect option for work or family event. Great for curvy women! Its a different material (Neoprene) but you will feel like a First Lady all night

Conservative, with just the right amount of edge!
I rented this dress for a celebratory business dinner, and wore it with the "carte blanche" necklace. It was perfect! I typically don't rent Tracy Reese styles, as they seem a bit to traditionally feminine for my tastes, but this dress was super modern and remarkably edgy (for a navy, knee-length cocktail dress). The fabric is actually neoprene, and the dress fit like a glove--or rather, a wetsuit. It looks tiny on the hanger, but has a ton of stretch and fits in all the right places. The exposed zipper and V-back are nice touches, that make it even more interesting from the back. One word of caution: The dress truly is a trumpet cut. While the bottom looks like it has a gentle flare on the model in the picture, it's extremely structured. A very cool, modern look, but the picture don't really do the lines of the dress justice.

Trendy and Tight
I loved the look and feel of this dress but it was not as flattering as I had hoped. I knew it would fit snuggly, but I was not confident or comfortable enough to actually wear it out.

This didn't work for me. It was like sausage casing. Not a good look and not comfortable.
I rented this as my "safe" dress for backup and it didn't work at all. Seemed to run quite small and was not flattering.

Show stopper!!!!
Wore this dress to a formal fundraising event and worn the admiration of everybody basically. The dress accentuates your curves, I felt sexy, cool and confident in this dress. The fabric is a little heavy but that's no biggie. Great dress overall !!!

Nice dress, but smaller than I thought it would be.
I rented this for my work Holiday Party. It was well made but I am still not sure I liked the material. It was heavy and clingy. I had to wear spanx bc it was slightly too small for me. I normally wear a 4-6 and I could have used the 8. The 6 fit but was a little tighter than I would have liked. Either way, I got many compliments on the dress even though I was constantly pulling it down and readjusting it. I wasn't totally in love with it so I most likely wouldn't rent again.

Fabulous dress!
Stretchy fabric fits your curves, very comfortable. If you're very small busted (A-B cup), you might not be able to fill out the top.

Unfortunately I did not get to wear this to the wedding because of the hurricane this past fall
I was able to try it on in the showroom and while I was initially hesitant because of the padding in the shoulders it ended up looking beautiful, and as I'm a bit short (5'4) this dress really elongated my figure. It was simple, elegant and I plan on renting it again for my next wedding in the hopes I can actually wear it!

It was so much fun to have a great dress for this occasion!
The dress is a bit snug, but it really conforms to your shape. It was very comfortable all night and I only needed one pair of Spanx!

I felt great in this figure flattering dress!
This dress fit like a glove! I wore this to a friend's wedding and felt that it had the perfect combination of classy and sexy. (In my opinion, the higher neckline and length of the dress balanced out the snug fit.) Although I'd say I'm usually a size 4, I ended up wearing the 2. Both sizes fit pretty well, I just liked the shorter length of the 2 on me. The material is fairly stretchy, but very thick like some of the ladies before had mentioned. The thickness of the material is the only reason I didn't give this dress a 5 star rating. I received tons of compliments on my figure while wearing this dress!

Classic Chic
I rented this dress for a family member's engagement party. I thought it was cute in the picture but it was stunning once I actually saw it. "How can a navy basic dress be stunning" you ask? Well the fabric was body hugging and the hi-low hem was so flattering for a curvy girl like me! It fit's true to size. I say this because the fabric and cut is meant to be form fitting. I am so in love with this dress, I was so sad to send it back! Anyways, I looked and felt great in it all night through eating dinner and socializing. I highly Recommend it!

Beautifully cut skirt and gorgeous back detailing.
Really gorgeously cut skirt with a beautiful back. I took one star off because the bust area had too much space so I had to fill it with a push up bra. The other star came off because the light, slightly foam-squishy material was reminiscent of neoprene (used in some wet suits) and didn't feel weighted enough to keep the dress in place. If I stood still, the dress was fabulous, but it would start to shift if I moved around for a while.

Perfect fit and very comfortable
Such a great comfortable dress. I really loved how it looked. It fit like a glove in a size 8 for me. I wore it comfortably at work, and then out for the night afterwards.

Classy and sexy at the same time
Great dress but was a little too fancy for the daytime work lunch I was attending. Would be perfect for a slightly more formal client dinner or cocktail event or a wedding.

Fit like a glove!
The neoprene was a fun and sturdy fabric. The dress is tighter and sexier than the picture, but because it is demure in its coverage it has a sophisticated look. The color blue is a great alternative to the usual LBD. The zipper bunched up a little in the back, but that really did not take away from the overall look.

A beautiful dress! So many compliments.
I saw this dress and wasnt sure if it was formal enough for the occasion- Cocktail party in Rome for my friend's 40th Birthday weekend. The dress caught my eye though and so I rented it as a backup. It turned out to be the perfect dress and fit beautifully. I received so many compliments and everyone wanted to know who designed the dress and where did I get it! I will absolutely rent this dress every chance I get.

I can not say enough about the quality of the customer service at RTR...Five star ALWAYS!
I may be the exception but I was surprised at how many other women said this fit true to size. I usually wear a 4 and had the 2 as my backup size. I would have liked to try the 6. The 4 was really beautiful and flattering but it rode up all night and I was having to shimmy it down. Also, it hit me sort of weird at the chest and (I thought) gave me a sort of pointed look. It was nice to have a longer back and I got many compliments. Navy is flattering and dressy while still looking appropriate for summer and without having to wear black to a wedding. If you are looking for a figure flattering dress that does not require any Spanx, this is it...if you want to dance the night away, I would choose a different style and fabric..Overall, not my favorite (the coral Herve can never be topped!) but stylish and appropriate for the occasion. The awesome and consistent service from RTR makes up for any real or imagined pointy boobs.... :) You also can't beat the price of this one.

Extremely fitted and runs long on petite girl.
I ordered size 4 and 6, both were extremely fitted and just too long for by 5'3" frame. Bust was also quiet big. Wanted to wear to a wedding but the fit made me uncomfortable. Definitely better for ladies with little to no curves.

amazing statement dress that is easy to wear
this was my favorite rtr rental so far! the dress is so flattering and classy and really makes a statement in a subtle way. the hemline of the dress is probably more flared/dramatic than it appears on the model, but that was what made the dress so special and different. the dress is very form fitting, but the fabric is thick and really smoothes/hides trouble spots....no spanx needed! probably could have worn the 0 or 2, but decided to go with the 0, as the fabric on the 2 was bunching a little.

Classy Dress
For a conservative, professional event, this dress is great. It arrived wrinkled, and with the material type that it is, I had to iron it before I wore it. I steamed it with a damp towel and the hotel iron and then rocked it. True to size though.

The fit was all wrong for my body type and height. Not the dress for me...
I rented this dress for my graduation and Pinning ceremony from Nursing School. I thought it looked beautiful and professional from the other renter's pics, however I had to send it back. I am 5'5", 125 lbs and wear size 34D. The size 2 fit perfectly, unfortunately (like another renter mentioned) the way the material is sewn in the bust area created very pointy boobs! No matter what type of bra I tried on with the dress, it just wasn't helping. As a result, I would have been super uncomfortable wearing the dress for this event. The size 4 fit well enough but the back was so long it looked like I was wearing a tux with tails...Also, the material is very thick and heavy (neoprene) and I live in AZ where the temp. was in the 100's that day. I would have melted if I wore the dress. It was very professional and conservative for a business or work event, and nice for cooler temps. Just not the right fit for me. But I love RTR and will be renting again soon! :)

Wow. This dress was perfect. You could wear this to a wedding, cocktail hour and even a work event. Conservative, but sexy. Has a really beautiful trumpet-like skirt at the bottom which is very flattering. Scuba-like material. Perfect for a fall/winter occasion. I wore it during a wedding in August and I wasn't too hot.

Love the details in the back!!
The fit was body hugging and the fabric was very flattering. Got a ton of compliments! The only negative thing about this dress is that the material was a bit itchy-- It was manageable, though since I wore it from the ceremony at 2pm until about 11pm when the reception ended!!

Unfortunately, I was unable to wear this dress to my event because it was unflattering.
There are some pros- the color is lovely and the dropped hem in back is flirty and fresh. Now for the cons--- I believe this dress in a larger size for a larger frame might work well. But for a petite, small-breasted woman, there was simply too much dress to work with. The material was VERY thick and when I tried it on I felt like a linebacker. Because it was so thick, it didn't "hang" properly and was quite stiff. I think for a curvier person the dress could WOW! But for a small-framed person, it just didn't work. It does run a bit small, but I think for me a larger size would not have been any more flattering.

Kind of thick, but very flattering
I loved the hemline of this dress. It fit like a glove, but it's kind of thick and heavy, almost like a neoprene feeling. Would have been uncomfortable if it was hot.

The structure of the dress is stiff and helps hold shape (it is forgiving)
Would rent this again. But for the early summer it is a warm material.
