It fit like a glove, I love it!

I wear this for a black tie wedding party, I was skeptical bec. It's just a replacement and the dress that I really wanted was not available so they sent me this awesome replacement. I wore it because my husband was awestruck while trying it on in front of him and insist wearing it instead of other dress that I also rented. So I did, it was a beautiful night o felt especial and stunningly beautiful. Thank you RTR my fashion stylist. Next time again. Xoxo

Odd fit

I loved how this dress looked when it arrived. I put it on, still loved it. Started moving around- the band that goes across would not stay flat. At all. This made the whole look appear unkempt and messy. It was my only option, so I pinned it down but it didn't look like it should in my opinion. This one of the many evening gowns I have rented in the past that is unlined. I really don't understand why this is now the trend for designers. I'm guessing it is a way to cut cost? Lined gowns always lay against the body nicely. Just a personal preference.

Audrey Hepburn Classic!

The material of this dress makes it incredibly comfortable. It's a bit stretchy. I love how it was high in the front to show off an incredible pair of shoes. Amazing dress!

Great fit and so comfortable!

Dress was fabulous! Material is thick and hides flaws and the train made it very formal for my black tie dinner. The only downside was I couldn't really lift my arms easily.

Did not wear. Too loose

Too loose. Too long. I'm a size 4, sometimes a 2. It did not hit me correctly. Would be better on a curvy body type.

Could scuba dive in this thing...

I really wanted to love this dress, but... first of all, it's elastic scuba diving material. Not elegant or high fashion. I'm usually someone who loves stretch in a garment, but this was crazy. Second, it runs about two sizes too big. I spent all day trying on wedding dresses, so I know exactly what size I am. I got this in my regular size 16, but would have easily needed a 12. Also, I'm 5'4 and this thing was dragging on the ground in the most awkward way. I have a 35 inch waist and 38D. Think really carefully about sizing if you're going to be relying on this fitting out of the box. Hope this helps someone else!

Back up style

Didn't wear it, it was a backup. It didn't hit me in the right spots because I'm petite and the back was more of a train than a high low. It was an attractive dress. The smooth material showed anything worn underneath but that's the only minus.

Didn't wear the 4

I didn't try this on since the 6 fit well. Got both sizes because I didn't know how it would fit. The dress still touches the floor with 4 inch heels.

Stunning

I love black halo. My whole work wardrobe is from the line and I know my sizes 100%. However, the evening line must be different. This was huge and I would have had to get it altered to wear it. Beautiful dress - but I didn't wear it. I ended up ordering the smallest size and buying it in red from black halo and getting it altered for my event. Beautiful and stunning - classic look. But size down!

Classic black gown

Wore this for a company Christmas party--elegant and easy to wear. This style does run large! I probably needed 6-8. I pinned the waist, but the top was still very large.

The dress was classic

Dress was so comfortable and fit like a glove - it didn't pinch in the waist which some dresses tend to do. Fabric and edges of dress were well made. There is a tapered train to the back. The top fold around the breastbone and shoulders did flip up from time to time and required some adjustment but I was extremely happy with this dress and got many compliments on it.

Formal elegant wedding dress

This dress was so elegant! I wore it to a formal wedding and received so many compliments. The fit was very flattering and the short train was a lot of fun to wear and dance in! I thought the off shoulder sleeves would get annoying but the fit was just right to keep everything in place. The zipper was a little tricky without help because of the thick material but all worked out. I am 5'3" and the train would've been long without heels but would still recommend! The material is heavy and warm (perfect for the east coast winter wedding) so be aware of that. Despite the heavy material it is still flattering and not too much fabric for my petite figure. #wedding #formal #shortandpetite

Very flattering!

The only negative about this dress is that you can't raise your arms almost at all. It does run big, so opt for the smaller size. I got so many compliments!

I felt so classy and comfortable!

Having rented Black Halo dresses before, I knew the size I would most likely wear. This one is more forgiving than the last one I rented, most likely because the fabric is stretchy. It was long for me, but the hi-lo hem showed off my fabulous shoes and created a bit of a train which totally worked! It was very flattering and classy, I felt very comfortable in it as well. Bonus: stretchy fabric doesn't wrinkle! Would totally rent this again!

Pretty, unique gown

The pros about this gown are the beautiful hi-low hemline and the off-the-shoulder style. However, it ran a bit large on me, which meant that it kept falling down on top and was not particularly flattering (it seemed to add 5lbs, but with the right fit I think it would be stunning). The main con is the band running across the front and shoulders: every time you raise your arms, it flips up, and you have to lay it down flat again.

Classy but runs big

I rented this dress for formal affair at work. It is conservative enough to wear around colleagues yet it's still formfitting and sexy. I liked the dress because it was a very thick stretchy fabric. It held you in and hugged your body. The high-low was a nice feature. The cons are that it ran big. I am a true size 6 and it was definitely big on me and the four would have been better. Also, the neckline rides up and you have to pull it down throughout the night and keep folding it over. If you want a safe option this would be a great dress.

Forgettable, runs large

The dress was pretty, but nothing spectacular. I wore it for a black tie suggested event. The sleeves stayed put all night, I was surprised! The material is nice and thick to hide any imperfections, but overall i wasn't terribly impressed with the dress.

Size down

Very gorgeous dress, however the material was not formal or structured enough for me. Did not wear due to how big the dress was on me. Wish i would've sized down. That would of also helped with the length.

Gala event

The dress was for a gala event. The night was incredible. The fit was perfect. It's a great length of my 5’6 stance. Would recommend for anyone. The material is tick enough to give it sway but it stands up alone on the flow down the legs if that makes sense.

Stunning!

Wore this for a black tie gala and got a million compliments. The fabric is not to thin, which is fantastic. Definitely glad I sized up, the 8 would have been very snug. I was able to move and eat in size 10!

Classic and Comfortable

Stretchy fit- I went with my back-up size which was one size smaller than my usual dress size. The high-low hem was great for my petite frame. I had a hard time keeping the top folded over and the long back is attached with an awkward seam straight across in the calf area. Overall, it was a sophisticated, timeless look I paired with winged, pack liner and red lips. Happy with the choice!

I usually wear a 10 but decided to size up. The 12 fit perfect. I was able to wear a regular strapless bra. The quality of the dress was amazing. I received lots of compliments.

Military Ball Dress

It was perfect for the event. I'm 5'5, 120 pounds and work 4 inch heels. The dress length was absolutely perfect. I normally wear a size 4/6 so the dress definitely runs big (as I work a 2). The picture is my significant other and I laughing.

Such a gorgeous dress, but it did not fit my body type.

Beautiful dress with thick fabric. Could have been very flattering but I found it ran large! I am not sure it is the right dress for bigger busted women. I have an athletic build, but with a little bit bigger chest. I am a 34D and found that the fabric just under my bra line down to my lower waist did not fit tight to my body. It left almost a tent like appearance. It would have been an absolutely beautiful dress if it weren't for that, though.

Gala spectacular!

I wore this to the Barnstable brown gala in Kentucky the night before the derby. Overall fit is true to size - it was a slight bit big in the chest and waist but I also have 34B bust size. I felt like absolutely amazing in this dress and got so many compliments. I will definitely be renting again.

Got a lot of compliments on the dress! One issue was the armpits area was quite exposed and the straps for hangers showed a lot but otherwise it was an amazing dress. The fabric laid so nicely and was slimming.

This black dress was exactly what I was looking for and complimented my body type. It was perfect!

I love how this dress fit and it was also very comfortable. The material had a bit of stretch to it so it wasn't too tight. I would definitely recommend this dress to anyone attending a formal event. I'm 5'9 and the dress was the perfect length from the ground with heels and was not dragging.
