This dress was simple, elegant yet very comfortable for a chilly night on the town in NYC.

This dress is great for fall/winter. The fabric is thick, great for a chilly night out where you might wear a wrap. I wore it will booties and statement earrings and it was so elegant. I would LOVE to own this dress.

In love with the cape and ease of wear

This is a great garment that can be dressed up or down. I'm in love with it and recommend it from everything to a business meeting to date night.

Kept me warm and made me feel sassy!

This dress is a heavier material, so it was perfect for a February party. It kept me warm! The cape detail is so fun and made me feel sassy. I felt like it was very flattering, and it ran true to size. I think it would work really well with most body types.

A cape at the opera...

A flattering, elegant dress that received so many complements. A bit tongue in cheek to wear a cape at the opera...perhaps why so many people stopped me to say how beautiful it is. Fit: wore the 8 with a 10 back up. Sexy shorter length made me choose the 8. I could sit just fine. Any undergarment will be concealed. Because the cape covers your torso, you can have bare legs and super high heels & not look trashy.

Amazing amazing amazing!!!

Im a 10 in dresses and a 12 if they run small but I could have gone with the 8 in this however it would have been tight in the chest. (36D) This dress made me feel awesome esp after having a baby because it hides every flaw imaginable. If I wasn't losing weight, I'd buy this in a heart beat. I had strangers coming up to me asking where I got this because it's so unique. I wore to a wedding and didn't have trouble dancing and it was perfect for the outside cocktail hour which was outside and a tad chilly. Would not recommend in the summer of it's an outside event and it's hot because the dress is alittle in the heavy side. I will totally rent this again. I'm over 5'9" and it still was an appropriate length. Will not disappoint.

This chic dress helped me slay on a fashion show red carpet!

I rented this dress for a uber fashionable fashion show. I chose it because it was simple, chic, and totally fierce with that cape! The dress fit just a but tight around my hips, but spanx did the trick. I wanted to go with the size 12 but it was unavailable. The fabric is quite heavy, but it serves to keep the shape of the cape. The dress hit my leg mid thigh, making my legs look longer and more slender! I pared the look with really large, bold earrings also from rtr. I got so many compliments on the dress from family, friends, and fashion pros! I 100% recommend this dress and may have to rent it again!

I wish I could wear this everyday for the rest of my life.

It's a chic, little black dress, with a cape. What more could I ask for? I can barely describe how much I loved it. I'm petite and a little thick in the middle, it fit so well. My guess is that it is versatile for all body shapes and sizes. Made me feel chic, stylish and elegant. It's sold out online so I was tempted to keep it.

A bit short but elegant. Not fully cleaned when arrived. Smelled of someone's perfume and a small tear in the armpit.

Best little black dress !

This dress was everything I hoped it would be. The fit (I wore a size 4) was perfect! I get nervous with dresses because Im a DD but this was perfect, not too clingy or short. Received a TON of compliments on it! I would actually rent this dress again that's how much I loved it

Perfect for an Outdoor England wedding.

I was the center of attention in this dress, it rained a bit but thanks to the thicker fabric and cape, I didn't need a jacket. The wedding was on the only chilly day of the week as well but it was perfect. Received a TON of compliments. Will rent again for sure!

Amazing dress

This was my replacement dress. I'm kinda glad the original dress I ordered didn't fit. This dress is great! It's very comfortable and well made. I received compliments and every turn. I felt like a super hero. Seriously considering buying it.

Wore this as a guest at a black tie professional event and it was perfect. Understated but memorable because of the cape. Fit was great and very flattering. Just add big earrings and high heels! (And forgive the terrible selfie photo)

Classy and easy

This dress is so classy. I wore it for a red carpet event and only needed a few accessories. It kept me warm and I felt it was very unique. Only trouble comes when you lift your arms up because the hemline inches up (and it's already short!). I wouldn't wear this to an event where you'd be dancing, but I absolutely loved it for this occasion.

Cape success

The dress was a bit hit at the wedding I wore it to. I'm normally a size 8 (5'2) but could probably have made a 6 work. It is a thicker dress, which was perfect for my late September wedding but anything before that, may be a bit too hot. Would recommend!

In LOVE

This dress was gorgeous. I rented a 12 with 14 as backup (I'm normally in between them), and went with the 14 as it was a little looser over my thighs and butt. But the 12 definitely fit as well, just tighter. I rented this for a dinner, but ended up wearing it to work that day as well, since it was so beautiful and comfortable. I would absolutely rent this again! This is the best rental I've ever had from RTR! Absolutely in love.

This dress is bold without being over the top. Would definitely rent again. My only complaint is that this dress was a little short, and overall large despite wearing my usual size 0

I loved this dress and got so many compliments! The only thing... it was difficult to dance in because of the attached cape. I will definitely use RTR again! The dress came on time and in perfect condition!

I can't say enough about this stunning classic! I received so many complements and felt amazing in it! I wish I could keep it forever!! I typically wear a 2 and I wore a 0. I say get your normal size and then a size down. Perfect for any occasion, it's so easy to dress up or down.

Chic Superwoman!

This dress was such fun! I wore it to an October Wedding and it was partially outside, so while all of the other girls were covering up their dresses with jackets, I rocked this stunner! I'm a girl with a tummy, so I always try to find things that aren't frumpy, and will still flatter and hide my belly. This dress did that and more! The way the back of the dress is designed, is so smart and elegant. The cape is only part of the sleeves, so the back of the dress still shows off the curve of your back to butt. A dress that can show off your legs, and the shape of your backside, but hide a tummy and tops of your arms!!!!! This dress is magical! It can be difficult to feel chic and sophisticated when your a bigger girl, and you want to rock a statement dress, but this dress checked off all my boxes and more! A stellar dress rental and one of my favs to date!

New favorite dress!

I'm not kidding. This is the best dress I've ever worn. It's classy, comfortable, flattering, and eye catching --what more could you ask for?! I wore this to a 1920s-themed work event and wanted something that was comfortable and could keep me both warm on a cool fall night and cool when running around. It also kept my arms covered enough to hide my tattoos. I'm a bit self conscious about my upper arms in general so I liked that it was covered a bit. It's not fitted so I was able to go down a size. Though I think I could have gotten away with the larger size as it is incredibly flattering. The material isn't too heavy but it's definitely not something you'd want to wear in the summer. You can do a lot with this dress in regards to jewelry too. I had tons of compliments all night and didn't want to take it off. I already plan on wearing it again for New Years!

So many compliments!

Obsessed with this dress! It was super comfortable, and I felt so confident wearing it. I've never gotten so many compliments in my life. I ordered my normal size, and a size smaller. I probably should have ordered the size up for my backup but my normal size ended up being fine. Only complaint is that it was too short to wear without tights. The whole dress rises up with the cape since it's attached, so I had to wear black tights to make sure there weren't any wardrobe malfunctions.

Backup dress

This was my backup dress and I didn't end up wearing it, but I loved it so I wanted to comment. This dress was fun and beautiful and fit great. It is short, so prepare for that. Also, with the length and the design of the sleeves, don't plan on putting your arms in the arm. Rent this for an event where you don't dance.

I'm normally a size 4 but the fit runs large. I loved this dress! It was comfortable and can still be done up glamorous. I opted for gold accessories to really make it pop.

Perfect dress for a masquerade party!

I rented the 2 and 4, I'm pear shaped and the 2 pulled a little bit on my hips, the 4 fit perfectly! I was happy for how warm it is since it was a cool night and we were or and about, might have been hot in it had I been inside all night. Lots of compliments!

So fashionable!

Great fit, runs a little large, but I liked it, easy to move in and so many compliments! I felt very chic and as my friends kept saying very "New York" (I'm a cali girl). And the cape kept me very warm for the outside wedding ceremony in the Bay Area!
