Nice dress
I ended up not choosing this dress because it was sent in place of another dress I chose and did not ship in time for my event. I tried it on once I received it and it was beautiful- very fitted through the entire dress but seems like it would be comfortable since the material is stretchy.

Stylist Review
So obsessed with this Opening Ceremony dress! I really can keep raving about it. Running true to size, I would recommend going down a size since the material is very stretchy. It allows for a comfortable amount of room in the midsection as well. This style works best for A to C cups, as it is fitted at the bust, but does allow for a good amount of stretch throughout. This piece can be worn with any standard bra which I love, and the waist, although very fitted, does allow comfortable room. Curvier women may want to consider sizing up for fuller hips, as this style definitely hugs all the right places! Although I have broader shoulders, the neckline and sleeves were extremely comfortable. At 5'7" this style was tea length on me, hitting a few inches above my ankle. This dress would look AMAZING on tall women, and it really is so flattering. As another amazing versatile black dress, this can be worn to any formal event you have coming up, whether it be a wedding or gala. Pair this style with some fun pumps or strappy heels, and add a long statement earring or necklace to complete the look! I wish I could keep this dress!

Amazing dress! As a stay at home mom hard to feel fancy.. Or have the time to do so! Perfect.
This dress is prefect if you want to feel sexy but it's not that warm out! Material is thick and warm. I didn't wear any undergarments because you would definitely see the lines. It was a bit longer than I anticipated which made me nervous but it ended up being perfect. I'm 5'6 and it hit the perfect spot... It could definitely be to your ankle or longer if shorter. Very form fitting. It's perfect to feel sexy but not exposed. Would definitely order again!

This dress is comfortable enough to run up a down escalator in. Not that you should.
This dress is incredibly stretchy, but it's going to highlight even the smallest problem areas or bumps in the midsection. I'm not particularly fluffy in that area, but I'm not sporting rock-solid abs either. I strapped on a pair of Spanx for the occasion, which smoothed everything out and hid the fact that I'd eaten a bagel for breakfast and a burrito for lunch because I have no self control, even when I know I'm shimmying into an unforgiving formal dress. The only weird/bad/unfortunate part of this entire rental was that the backup size--a medium, which fit pretty well, too, but was a little bigger under the arm holes and just as unforgiving everywhere else--came with some sort of wretched burnt hair odor that managed to impart itself slightly on the size small dress, too. And the entire bag. I ended up airing out both dresses and steaming the small to try to get rid of the stench but that medium might be beyond salvation. I'd consider renting the small again, since I really did feel fantastic in it and received a ton of compliments, which is always a nice combo.

Really awesome shape - not your typical black dress!
Great length for anyone - works well for a shorter gal who doesn't fit in the black tie long-length dresses unless they're hemmed. You can dance in it - super stretchy!! Worn to an early spring wedding that was a little dreary.

Great Body Con LBD
Super soft material and the fabric fit and flattered my straight figure, I loved the proportions and cut of the neck. My only issue was zipper placement. Instead of zipping up the back it zips up the side so it bubbles a bit at the waist.

The fit is amazing for curvy girls like myself. Super comfy, chic and just not your typical black dress.

If you dont mind me asking- what size are you? I am usually a 6/8 and was going to get a small and a medium?
alexandraMay 12, 2016
Hi Allison! Hi Allison- I wore the medium i am the same size as you. Get both small and medium but the medium allowed me to dance and eat alittle more :) you will fall in love with this dress :)

I loved this dress!!! Fit like a dream. Comfortable and modern classic. Wore it with spanx and no bra. Foundation garments are a must as it does show every curve.

Wound up using a different dress but loved the fit and texture. This was very lux, simple, chic.
Perfect for dressing up with jewelry and good shoes, the flippy hem and texture kept this from being too staid. Would rent again for an event.

Stretchy, comfortable and flattering
Although this dress is very form fitting, the fabric and construction are incredibly stretchy and flattering. The length is playful and a good opportunity to show off some fun shoes. Also great because you can wear a normal bra.

Chic, versatile, comfortable dress
I loved wearing this dress to a recent evening spring wedding I attended. I found it to be just the right look for wedding that called for "formal" attire (cause who really knows what that is supposed to mean anyway). It would easily work for a dressier or more casual wedding. A very versatile look. It was so comfortable and easy to move in and you can wear it with a regular bra, which is a plus. The shape is simple, but the textured material keeps it from being boring, and it is a great blank canvas to show off jewelry or accessories. The dress is figure-hugging and it shows it all: The good, bad and everything in between, so make sure you are ok with that (undergarments are your friend in this dress for sure!). I ordered the small with a medium as a backup, but didn't even try the medium on as the small fit like a glove. I am on the shorter side, and this dress hit just above the ankle on me. All in all, I loved renting this and would do so again.

Sleek, flattering, and comfortable.
Wore this to a party at the Magic Castle in LA. It was the perfect dress, as it hugs where it needs to hug and gives where it needs to give. I think I am going to buy this dress, just because it is such a fantastic go-to for a cocktail dress.

Runs a little small, extremely flattering fit. Spanx encouraged :)
I ended up wearing the backup larger back up size because the XS that I ordered smelled so bad I didn't want to wear it public. RTR I would recommend retiring the XS size that you sent me do to the horrible stench. Luckily the size Small also fit since it is such a tight fitting dress. Very flattering and I ended up getting lots of compliments. Even though it is pretty tight all over, it was still easy to dance in. :)

Great formal dress for shorter gals
I rented this dress for a black tie fundraiser at the Central Park zoo. It fit like a glove but the thick fabric didn't show off too many bulges and the wavy texture made it more interesting than a simple black dress. I'm 5'3" and the ruffle came right to my ankle so it's definitely a good option for a floor-length gown for the shorter girls out there. The only drawback was the placement of the zipper on the side which made kind of a weird bump.

This dress is so unique because of the style and length. I love it!!!
This fits true to size. It felt like a thick, textured spandex. Great to dance in! You can also dress it up or down because the fabric is so versatile.

Classic with a flair
This dress was perfect for a wedding where I needed something a little more than a cocktail dress. The material wasn't too fancy in person, and it hugged my curves nicely. I am 5'2" so the flare ended up around my ankles but it looked great actually, I just wore platform sandals to balance it out.

Flattering fit and fun cut!
Really loved the dress. It's fitted but the fabric is flattering and hides any mid region concerns I had. It was on the longer side. I'm 5'8" and it hit below my mid shins with heels on.

Very conservative
This dress hugged your body in all the right places, but it was too conservative for me. It was too long and came up too high. It is definitely a more mature dress.

Really fun, flattering Little Black Dress!
We were traveling for my fiance's 20th HS Reunion and we had no clue about the level of dress code before flying out so I picked a range of options, Didn't end up wearing this one out, it was a little too dressed up for the tone, but it was very flattering, very comfortable, and a super cool alternative to a traditional LBD. I'm 5'7" and the MR hit closer to my ankles than I thought it might. I too noticed the slight pucker where the side zipper ended, but it wasn't hugely annoying. Would definitely rent this again!

Perfect for a whiskey and cigar party in a historic 1800's mansion
Stretchy fabric made this dress very comfortable and form fitting. Loved that the dress had a subtle sheen. Also, the fabric was thick, so no worries on underwear lines. This is one of the few dresses from RTR that I wished I could keep because of its timeless cut and color.

Vavoom!
Usually a large gives me some eating room; this did not allow for any blot! However, from the front, the wavy lines make for a forgiving silhouette. My cousin had to wipe some road dust off the back and commented on the great fabric. Don't be scared by the mermaid like effect it does not impair movement, or dancing!

Beautiful fit
Dress is beautiful and hides a multitude of flaws due to the shirring on the front. Shows all the flattering side curves while making my stomach look pretty flat. What more could you ask for? Like most RTR dresses, a bit snug on the top, but stretchy enough that it's easy to move. Nice flexible length, which made it not too long for me, and the perfect level of 'dress-up' for this fall gala.

I am tall - 5' 11" and I thought the dress would be shorter on me than on the model in the photos. It wasn't which was fine and I loved it the same, but just as a note. Great material! Super comfortable!

This dress was comfortable, elegant and flattering! Compliments galore. Would definitely rent again!
The fit was perfect, highly recommend Spanx underneath. The material is flattering and comfortable. I am 5'7 and the length was perfect on me. If you were a bit shorter it may look more like a gown than a cocktail dress. Loved the flare at the bottom. The one minor downfall was that the middle bunched up a bit and the zipper bumped out a bit on the side. No one noticed that though!

Great dress, ran smaller than I thought.
This dress was great. I would describe it as a ankle length body con. It definitely ran smaller than I thought, the fabric has some stretch and was forgiving, but I would've like to try a medium. I would order up for back up. Very cool dress!

Favourite rental
I've rented a lot of items with Unlimited and this has been my favourite one. Worn to rehearsal dinner and felt fabulous in it. Dress can be dressed up with accessories or down with simpler ones. The material is shinier than expected but thick enough to smooth things out. Amazing lines, edgy but classic, subtle but a stand out. If you're on the fence definitely go for it!

I loved the fit of this dress. It hugs your curves like an Hervé, although the material used is classier than bandage. I received many compliments and felt that the dress was more than perfect for the occasion! #Perfect #Gala #BlackDress #OpeningCeremony

Loved having a unique dress that I could dance the night away in!
I loved this dress! The perfect amount of sexy and chic for a black tie wedding. It hugged my body like a glove and was extremely comfortable. I danced all night with ease! I received so many compliments all night, one of them being "Best Dressed." My measurements aren't showing up but I'm a size 6, almost 5'7", 140 lbs, and 34DD. I would definitely recommend this dress!

Appropriately conservative but seriously va-va-voom
This dress is crazy comfortable due to the fabric stretch. The texture hides any lumpy bits. I didn't need any contouring undergarments. I still have this in my queue for future events.

This dress was the best!
I received so many compliments on this dress. It was really the most comfortable dress I've ever worn. The material was stretchy, but not skin tight. I was able to dance comfortably on the dance floor. I was debating between the Small and Medium, both were very similar but the Medium was a little too big in the stomach area. I wish I could own this!

Amazing, classy LBD!
Love love this dress and the fit on my body was perfect. I have a small waist with curves --- made my rear end look bigger -- in a good way. I wore a spanx to tighten the areas I didn't want to show. Overall this dress is simple, classy but very flattering. I received lots of compliments. I'm usually a size 4, waist 27 -- and the small fit perfectly.
