Super chic black dress.

Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
Does have an A-line skirt but flattering, hugs in all of the right spots. Would be perfect for a pear shape.

Loved it but bf convinced me to wear other rental

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I loved this dress, but the bf convinced me to go with the Preen sandstorm for his firm's holiday party. Tried the 38 and 40. Both fit. Very forgiving on the bottom, but not too accentuated of an a-line. The 38 did not have any extra room if you're bigger than me on top (which most people are, as I'm a 32-34AA). Would probably have gone with the 40 simply so it wouldn't hike up if I lifted my arms. Also, you need to wear it with a NuBra (or no bra) cause a standard bra won't work with the side cutouts. Will probably rent again so I actually get to wear it.

I got a ton of compliments and had so much fun dancing the night away!

Size worn: 40
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
The dress was perfect for my 25th Birthday. The length was classy (sometimes tricky to find a short dress to wear out dancing for someone who's 5'9) but the cutouts made it edgy and sexy. It was a perfect dress for dinner and a 4am night out. Plus, it's Versace; It screamed sophistication.

Words cannot describe how much I loved this dress...

Size worn: 42
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I actually ordered this as my back-up style, and I am SO glad that I did! I absolutely loved everything about this dress. If I could afford it, I'd buy it in a heartbeat! It's hard for me to find dresses that fit well that I consider "sexy." I'm tall and have a large bust, so things that would look sexy and tasteful on others often end up looking sleazy on me; anything low-cut or with a high hemline is basically out of the picture! This dress showed just the right amount of skin. I was getting compliments all night long! I'm all over the place as far as sizing goes, but this dress fit like a glove. I most often wear a 6 or an 8. The fabric does have some give to it, so it fits to your body beautifully. I will also say that I can't remember the last time I wore a dress to a formal event and was able to go spanx-free, but in this dress, not only was I able to go without spanx, I felt hotter than I ever felt with them! Who even knew that was possible!? I feel that this dress would be appropriate for myriad events, and it's also a great canvas for fun shoes, handbags, and jewelry. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone considering!

Amazing dress

Size worn: 40
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I loved everything about this dress! The fit was perfect and flattering. The dress is very simple but the square neckline and the cutouts on the side give it some interesting detail. I definitely recommend this dress for a wedding, party or date.

Didn't fit :(

Size worn: 40
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was only available in the size 40, and I loved it so much in the pictures I just ordered it without a back up size... It is a very heavy fabric, so I'm glad I didn't wear it for the 90+ degree outside wedding I rented it for. I have a 34C bust and I tried it on without a bra... It zipped all the way up but it was so tight on my bust it might as well have been a sports bra! Not even an unpadded bra fit underneath. Sooooo not flattering on the girls. Overall, the fabric was nice, but heavy, and the slits in the side were tasteful yet sexy. I liked it a lot, I wish it would have fit me better!

Perfect LBD. Sexy side cutouts but covered up enough to be sophisticated.

I loved this dress! I wore it for my bachelorette party and it was the perfect "sexy"/fun dress.

Size worn: 40
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I had ordered both the 38 and 40, but went with the 40. The dress is supposed to fit tight and I have a large chest. The 40 fit perfectly. I didn't even need to wear a bra - which never happens! I loved the cut of the chest and the length of the dress. Cut outs scare me because I think they can veer into trashy, but I felt great all night. The fabric was also nice and thick.

Would definitely choose this dress again!

Size worn: 40
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wore this dress for a law school formal. The dress fit very nicely over my hips- fitted, but not too tight. I'm not generously endowed, yet the dress felt quite tight up top, so I would recommend that women with a larger chest be careful when choosing a size! Overall it was marvelous to dance in, and I felt amazing in it. I would definitely wear it again.

My friend's Bachelorette!

Size worn: 40
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I usually wear either a 0 or a 2 in dresses, I went a little larger with the 40 this time because of other people's reviews and I am glad that I did. It may be a difficult dress for people with a larger bust size that also wear between a 0 and 2, I'm a 34B and it was pretty tight, definitely snug enough that I didn't have to wear a bra. The length is perfect for dancing and the cut outs give it a little extra without being inappropriate. I wore it to a fine dining restaurant and then to a dance club and it was perfect in both settings.

Beautiful dress but too small :(

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I ordered this dress for a bachelorete party. They only had 2 sizes left (38 & 40). I normally wear a size 4 (42) but I opted to try and squeeze into a 40. Well needless to say, It was wayyy too short once I was able to zip it up! lol I am 5'9 and curvy. I think even a size 42 would have been too small. I called customer service and they were able to overnight another dress of my choice! RTR is so accommodating and helpful. It was superrrr cute and I'm bummed it didn't work out.

This was a great dress. The length was appropriate for a wedding but the side cutouts spiced it up

Size worn: 40
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I usually wear a 0 but needed to go up to the 40 in this dress. It was perfect in the bust for me, which is not always the case for me, who is on the smaller size. I was also able to wear a bra with it, which was great.
