I love this dress so much... I think I might buy it!
I am in love with this dress seriously, it's beautiful. Gorgeous material, flows beautifully, and hugs in the right places! Plus I am a sucker for a long dress with long sleeves. I wore it in FL on my 30th birthday trip and it was absolutely perfect. I usually get a backup size but only a 4R was available. Luckily it's true to size and fit just right. I have long legs so was afraid the R would be too short but honestly if I had gotten the L I would have needed to wear pretty high heels I think. Would recommend, and will probably either order it or rent again!

Punch of sexy, yet appropriate for boyfriend's work Christmas party.
Pros: lightweight, fluid, comfortable yet elegant, no special undergarments required. Cons: Not for the girl that is conscious about her curves!

Nice to have long sleeves at a winter formal!
This dress does not photograph well, but it is very pretty. The long sleeves and high neck are great for winter. The hem in one sleeve was pulled out and had been repaired with red hem tape, which was strange. This is jersey fabric, so it is stretchy and there were a couple small holes in the shoulder. I originally wasn't going to wear a necklace, but the dress felt very plain and dark without, so I added some sparkle.

BEAUTIFUL Dress!!!
This dress was fabulous, it fit like a glove!!This was the first time that I had rented from RTR and this definitely will not be my last. The quality of the material is impeccable. I felt beautiful! The dress came in a waterproof garment bag wrapped in plastic and already on a hanger so there were no worries about the dresse(s) being wrinkled. Can't wait to rent another dress soon!!

The fit, length and feel of the dress made for a stunning look that was comfortable.

I originally wanted to wear this to the Washington Post holiday party. Will rent for something else!
Well. So it didn't fit. I got a 12P and the backup in a larger size instead of a smaller size. It was way too big, but that turns out not to be RTR's problem. I knew I'd lost some weight, but it's happened so slowly I didn't imagine my dress size had already changed so much. The dress itself is beautiful, and the petite length was perfect (I'm 5'2" and struggle with tripping on long dresses so yay for this!). The cut and the fit would have been absolutely flattering on a short, very curvy, really big busted me if it had been at least one size (maybe 2) down from this. The material moves well, stretches but not in that cheap "stretched out of shape" way so this would fit bodies from no curves to full blown hourglass and everywhere in between with no problem. Really a genius design. I'd have looked into trading it out before the event if I'd had time, but my evil apartment building insisted it hadn't been delivered so I didn't even get a chance to pick it up until the day before and thanks to work, that was too late. Anyway, I'm actually pretty bummed I didn't get to wear it because it really is a stunning dress (I pulled it back with a clip like they do in dress shops just to see what it might look like if it had fit; there were INCHES of extra material). I'm now determined to find another party so I can rent it again in the right size. I'd even consider buying this because its classic cut and flattering fit will still look good for a long time to come. Really, truly a beautiful piece, and I'm very disappointed I didn't get to wear it. Hey, the up side is I'm down two dress sizes! Silver linings, right?

I loved this dress! Definitely recommend for a wedding. It's a great material and very flattering.
The only downside is the way it drapes in the front. I think its because I have a short torso.. I am 5'2. But I used a safety pin to hold the drape in a more flattering position around the mid section... and you couldn't even tell. I received soo many compliments. I ordered a petite because the regular wasn't available and I was worried about length, but the petite length was perfect. I wore 4 inch heels with it.

Formal, showstopper look, but feels like loungewear!
This dress is the perfect mix of classic beauty and formality, with the most amazing comfort! The dress hides all the imperfections, still shows some skin, and is amazingly comfortable. I could have slept in this dress! It runs a little big, but not enough that you can't wear your normal size (not to mention one size below would be fine).

Lots of compliments!
This dress was NOT the original dress I had rented. The week of my rental I was told the original dress, it had been damaged, even my backup dress. RTR did absolutely everything they could to get me another dress that not only I liked, but was going to be delivered on time! They sent me 5 dresses and I absolutely fell in love with this one. I wore the size 0L which was a great fit! I wore it to the Marine Corps ball and received SO many compliments! I would definitely Rent again.

Loved it!
I loved the idea of not having to shop in store for a dress. I saw this one online and instantly fell in love with it. Another great thing I liked was being able to order 2 sizes at no extra cost! I decided to pick up my dress in store so that I could try it on and also leave the one that I didn't choose there. I tried on the first size (which didn't fit too well) it also had a huge hole in the back!! I quickly tried on the other size and it fit perfect. I thought to myself what if it was the other way around and the one with the hole was the one that did fit (I had no extra time to look for another dress and there weren't anymore sizes in this style in store) but thankfully that wasn't the case. I got lots of comments and I felt beautiful in this dress. It fit perfect and was very comfortable.

Wore it to a military ball.
The slit was higher that I had anticipated it being and fell awkwardly during dinner exposing more leg than I would have liked. I did like the silhouette and felt the dress was flattering overall.

Gorgeous dress, would have preferred 1 size up
I am only 5'5 and felt this dress was short. I really wish I would have gotten a size 12 in order to feel more comfortable. When I sat down or walked the slit would ride up which made me uncomfortable, but had I had 1 size up, I think the dress would have been perfect.

Simple and classy
Super comfortable. Roomy for post baby body, and draping helped hide imperfections. Regular length was short, even with flats. Sleeves at the wrist were a little big, however I pulled them up a bit to 3/4 length and was perfect. Simple and classy!

Lovely Dress, Perfect for a Gala
I'm short so the petite length was perfect with 3 1/2 inch heels. I ordered the 4R and the 6P and ultimately chose the larger size because the regular length was a little long for me. If a 4P had been in stock I think that would have been perfect. Overall it is a very comfortable dress to sit and walk in and I had no issues at all. Would definitely recommend!

It was a very beautiful black tie wedding
The dress was beautiful and very comfortable. The 4 actually was a little too long in the sleeve and the length. The 2 was still a bit long but not a tripping risk. It still was dragging a bit and I had to hold it up to walk and I am 5'5" and was wearing a pretty high heel. I received a lot of compliments on the dress and felt very glamorous. I like plain, simple clothes so I really loved this as it was elegant and had beautiful structure but not flashy. And did I mention soooo comfortable!!!

Elegant AND Comfortable!
I can't say enough about how much I loved this dress. I waited until the last minute to order and ended up with this; easily the most comfortable formal dress I've ever worn, as well as flattering, elegant, and malfunction proof. Be aware that the slit is not subtle, which I didn't really get from the pictures (does make it very easy to walk in though). Also fun to accessorize because of how simple it is: I wore it with Oscar de la Renta Jet Crystal Bouquet earrings and the Kendra Scott Dalphene bracelet set. Couldn't have asked for a better combo and so many compliments!

RtR process and customer service was incredible. Will use them for all future events.
It was much more loose than expected, and there were marks left from being ironed. Overall not a bad dress, received many compliments! I'm 5'8" and with 2" heels, the 6L was perfect. Would wear this dress to feel classy (I went to a military ball) but if you want more sex appeal, maybe something else. Pair with statement necklace/ earrings definitely. My backup dress was unavailable last minute, but they sent me a secondary, similiar dress. They also offered to overnight me another dress, regardless of cost, or reimburse me if neither dresses worked. Amazing customer service. If you're worried about the rental process being confusing, don't. It's easy.

Lovely!
Loved this dress and received many compliments on it throughout the night. I attended a November wedding and the long sleeves were perfect for the weather. I am 5' 7" and wore 4" heels so I decided to get the long because I wanted the dress to hit the floor and, with the 8L size, it did.

The dress fit perfect very true to size and I ordered the length in P and it came to my ankles so I wish I would have just gotten regular length so it was to the floor. It's nice and warm so it's perfect for chilly weather!

May come messed up so must adjust.
This was my backup and there was a piece that goes on the back to kind of hide your butt but it had moved and was in the front on mine and I couldn't figure out what to do with it. Very comfortable and soft fabric, though. I am 5'3 and the 16P fit me perfectly in height.

Dream Dress!
I only have ONE con: the front of the dress ended up being shorter than expected so I had to find the right heels to make it work. Otherwise, I received so many compliments on this dress! It was extremely flattering and perfect for a cool, breezy, fall night.

This dress is stunning!!
The dress is gorgeous! I did get a 10 too, but I found that size to be a little bit more snug which is why I opted for the bigger size. I had so much room to move around and dance freely. I am 5'2, so I'm pretty short and the petite length worked great for me. If you are taller than that, I would recommend getting a longer size though! Overall the dress was awesome and is really flattering. I would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to look elegant and feel comfortable!

Very lovely, elegant and This was an old-faithful style back up to a very extravagant hopeful. I usually have an issue with length and wear petite dresses but this was above my ankles. The remainder too big all over
