Surprised
I didn't realize the sleeves were so open on this dress from the pictured look. They are almost cape like. Very cute dress for a night out on the town but I thought the sleeves were a little too much for me to wear to my wedding shower. The material is very sheer with with gold specks/circles on it. I would get this for a different/less formal occasion. My fiance' loved it though :)

Not what I expected
I looked at this dress and the pictures and when I received it I felt it looked totally different - I expected a more casual material, but it's sheer and has gold sparkly dots. Now, that being said, the dress is pretty - don't get me wrong! I **would** recommend it for a bride to wear to her bridal shower **IF** you could lift your arms up while wearing it! I couldn't wear it because I was heading to dinner and when I put the dress on because the sleeves are connected to the back of the dress and because the wrists on the sleeves have no give YOU CAN'T RAISE YOUR ARMS ABOVE YOUR WAIST! I found the humor in it - but if someone had rented this for a special event and couldn't wear it because of this I'd be sad they weren't warned. I would not rent this again and would NOT recommend it to others. Well, unless you had an event where you planned on keeping your arms at your sides all night ; )

When everyone complimented me on finally becoming more fashion forward!
I rented this for a charity benefit in NYC. I loved this dress and got so many compliments! It was a little more dressy than I had imagined with the gold detail, but worked perfectly for the event. The only reason it's a 4.5* instead of a 5* is that the sleeves are connected to the waist and thus limit your upper body movement when they are buttoned up. This impeded my dancing, which certainly didn't need any help looking silly to begin with. That said, I would definitely rent this dress again!

sexy, unique, bold.
I usually wear 4 or 6 and I was swimming in the 6. Order a size down. The sleeves are unique but unlike others I had no trouble lifting my arms in my dress. Supes low cut. I didn't get hollywood tape but I probably could have used it. Wouldn't have been comfortable wearing in direct sunlight. It's very sheer and even though there's somewhat of a "slip" on the inside, it's still a bit see through. Make sure you have the proper undergarments for this one. It makes a statement, for sure. Many compliments on this unique dress. Not something to wear if you're trying to blend in or are worried about potentially showing too much skin.

Felt like a goddess:)
I rented this dress for a opening night party for the musical Xanadu! In the show I play a greek muse, so I wanted something Grecian feeling. This totally worked! It was beyond gorgeous in person. Yes, you will need double sided tape to keep the top closed, and yes, it is a bit difficult moving your arms around. But I was able to hold a drink in one hand and felt totally comfortable in it all night. Got tons of compliments. Loved it. Didn't want to return it!!:(

Gorgeous dress. The sleeves weren't what I expected as they are completely open underneath but I seriously felt like an angel in the dress (and a co-worker even told me I did)!

Hot to trot!
I wish I could have worn this dress (I couldn't, however, because the liner was damaged and the fabric is sheer). That said, it would have been HOT - such a pretty, unique dress. It's definitely not a casual dress, and will take some double sided tape, but well worth it!

Not good for Pear shape
I didn't realize the polka dots were gold, but it was still very pretty! Unfortunately, it was too small for my hips, if I had a larger size than it would have fit be much better! It was still gorgeous and I wish I could have worn it.

I got so many compliments on this dress. It feels good to be the best dressed in the house!
I rented this dress to attend a white party. Initially when I received it, I didn't like the fit of this dress, but it eventually grew on me. The top kept popping open, a little double sided stick take helped with that. I felt like it could have fit better, but I went ahead and wore it anyway. I got lots of compliments. If you rent this dress, make sure you have the proper undergarments and some double sided stick tape to keep the top closed.

Everyone wanted to know who designed my dress and where I got it! They were surprised to hear how great RTR service is and what an awesome idea RTR is.
This dress was the PERFECT dress for my Bridal Shower luncheon which was in a cafe from 12-4pm. It was casual but yet celebratory with the gold accents and perfect for a feminine, daytime look. I did wear a white camisole underneath for comfort as the neckline hit too low for my liking. Very glamorous, cute and sexy all at the same time!

I was able to pick up my package from the courier which was convenient.
This dress is much perettier in person. You can't see the delicate details in the picture. Eventhough I enjoyed the dress I would not rent it again.

Great fit, awkward sleeves
The waist, neckline and length were on point. The sleeves (for my long-ish arms) were a bit difficult to manage. I rented this for my engagement photoshoot and while it made for lovely photos my arms felt restricted when I tried to move. (not recommended if you are planning on having a dance party.)

So much fun to wear! I felt like a true goddess! Very sexy and great party dress!
I rented this dress for Labor Day weekend in Aspen with the girls. This dress was such a blast to wear- I felt beautiful in it. The sleeves and short length are very fun. I wore a 4- I usually wear a 4 or a 6 in dresses. The dress was a little tight in the sleeves (at wrist) which made it hard to put my hands above my head- but that didn't prevent my moves on the dance floor, hahaa. Overall, loved it! Would love to own this one.

Modern Princess Gown for a Disney Engagement!
I will always remember this flowing white, shimmering dress as the dress I got engaged in. It's a great fit for curvy girls like myself. The skirt can be tight, which is why I wore a size 4 even though the 2 fit me. As to wearability, I recieved a ton of compliments on this dress. The fabric is breezy with subtle shimmer in the form of tiny gold poka-dots. it has great movement although I would echo the suggestion to use double sided tape to keep the bust closed. The arms can be awkward if you are mving around alot but it did not bother me. This dress was the perfect one to get engaged in! Thank you Jenna in customer service too for being so wonderful! I recommend RTR to everyone I know. I wrote this glowing review and a few hours later I recieved 4 messages from RTR that this rental was returned late. DESPITE the fact that I KNOW this is not true (I dropped this off at a very reliable business center in my hotel who promised me they would put it in the mailman's hands themselves that moring. I actually got up at 7am to ensure I would be there before the mailman!), the way this has been handled by RTR is obnoxious to me and ruined what i said above. Proving themselves to be just unrepentent, automatic calling nuisances who distrub my night with call after call to "inform" me about charges they are going to put on my account but do so at a time that I could call back and dispute. This seems deliberately subversive. You can be sure as wonderful as the dress was, the end of this experience is ensuring I will never rent again. IF YOU WANT A COMPANY TO LOOK FOR ANY REASON THEY CAN CHARGE YOU THEIR EXTRA 5% FEE ON THE RETAIL VALUE OF BOTH YOUR DRESSES, SIGN UP HERE. This is apparently where they make their money.

Great dress for my bridal shower!!!
This dress was super cute and perfect for my bridal shower!! The billowy sleeves and gold details made it really special and unique. Only downside: I really felt like the fabric contained the heat. I don't normally get hot easily but wearing that dress made me feel hot for most of my bridal shower. Other than that, it was perfect for the occasion!

The dress got here and I ordered a 4 and a 6. The 6 fit my bust a little better.
Difficult if you have a lot of cleavage, but such a cute, fun dress! Such a beautiful fabric.

Super comfy
I wore this dress for one of the locations for my snior pictures. the front is very low and wide open, i usually wear a size 10, but the ten didnt look right pinned, so I wore the size twelve to make it look better pinned. It's also very fitted around the legs, i sized up because my shoot required me moving around quite a bit and i didnt want it to ride up. Anyway, the ten fit amazingly for normal circumstances, and since the waistband in elastic it's super comfy.

Gorgeous dress... not best for dancing
This dress looked amazing on, it was absolutely gorgeous. I received so many complements on it, as well as people who wanted to rent it in the future. However, if you plan on dancing at an event, the sleeves make for limited up and down arm movement.

I wore this dress when I hosted my best friend's baby shower. LOVED it!
The dress was so comfortable! I started out in heels but then ended up in flip flops and it still looked just as cute. You do need double stick tape though for bust which I forgot to use. Oops. I loved the earrings too!

Pretty
I needed a white dress for a "blanc soiree" cocktail party. I liked this one, mostly to be more fashion-forward at the party instead of preppy (i.e. Lily P-ish). The fit was a little small- I have small shoulders and almost always wear a 0 in dresses, btu the 2 was fine for me (glad I ordered both sizes). It made me look/feel a little "curvier" than usual- take that lightly as I know I'm pretty thin- but it made me feel a little bustier than I normally feel if that makes sense. I got a million compliments. Def not a dress I would have purchased but as a rental it was perfection.

I wore this for my daughter's baptism. It was the perfect demure yet sassy style for the occasion.
Fits as expected. The fabric was quite scratchy and the size 4 was a little bit stained on the sleeve so I went with the size six which was more comfortable anyway. The V was quite deep and would open as wrap style dresses tend to do, a safety pin fixed that easily enough. I loved the sleeved look yet it was still breezy enough for summer. Great dress overall.

Great customer service! RTR always delivers.
I ended up not wearing the dress for 2 reasons- I didn't have a slip with me to wear underneath (could clearly see my undergarments) and the fabric was itchy/uncomfortable. I have sensitive skin so the fabric really bothered me. I agree with others that the dress looks great in person but it just wasn't for me.

It was perfect for an outdoor dinner party. Compliments all night.
From the reviews, I was expecting a looser fit. The dress is actually very short (I'm 5'4") so I was okay, but a taller girl might have problems. I am much bigger on top than on bottom, so the bust area was a tad tight. Other than that, the dress fit well and was flattering and comfortable.

Although I was very disappointed with the dress, the service and delivery was great!
The lining on the inside of the dress is much smaller than the dress itself. You also cannot move your arms above your shoulders, so if you want to dance you have to be careful!

Fits very big especially on the top. Good for bustier girls. Also the dress is itchy.

Angelic Goddess Look
Although I received this dress with stains on the sleeves and didn't have time to reorder another one, I did try it on and the style is beautiful but doesn't look like it's an expensive dress. I normally wear a size 0 but I ordered the 2 based on the other reviews and it fit just right. It is on the short side and fits pretty tightly around the thighs and butt. I don't know why they had model wear black shoes because the gold flecks throughout the fabric, this dress should be worn with gold metallic shoes or neutral shoes. Just wish I could've actually worn this and it was my first rent the runway order :(
