I was asked several times throughout the night where I got my dress and did not hesitate to tell everyone about RTR!

I wore this dress for a formal charity event and got so many compliments. It was a little shorter than I expected and I am only 5'2" but the high neckline makes up for it. Minimal jewelry is needed and everyday black pumps work perfectly.

I received so many compliments on this dress all night long!

It is gorgeous! The black and gold details are really pretty. Perfect for a fall or winter wedding! The fit is a bit small. I am an 8, and while I could've worn the 8, I decided to do the 10 for comfort. I would definitely order your typical size and then one size up, just in case. I'm so glad I ordered this dress!

I think the fit was a little too small. I didn't think it was too short, however, I did get the size 4 and it wouldn't even go up over my hips (where normally I can do that with dresses!). The size 6 ended up fitting perfect. I really liked it and received many compliments throughout the night. I give it 5 stars because the size 6 was great!!

This is the second time that I am renting from RTR and I loved this dress! I ordered a size 2 and 4 for a 5:00 wedding...both fit, but I ended up wearing the 2. It was comfortable and my husband liked it! The only thing that I didn't like about it was that it was a little loose in the neck area. I wore a regular bra, which was great. I can't wait for my next event to rent again.

It was a very cute dress. Got a lot of compliments on it and people asking me where I got it. I have a big butt, so the size 2 was way too small around that area.

The fit was a bit on the smaller side. I ordered an 8 and a 10. I fit into the 8, but it was tough to sit down comfortably since there really is no stretch in this dress. The 10 gave me the little extra room that I needed. I received so many compliments! It was so amazing to wear such a beautiful dress. I felt fabulous all night long. Thank you!

Gorgeous Details on dress!

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I ordered the 10 but it was just to snug on my hips. I wore the 12 because it fit me better in the hips but the top half was so bulky. There seemed to be to much fabric. I was happy with this dress overall. Although the black slip underneath was longer than the actual dress. (Almost like it had been washed and then thrown in the dryer). I wore black tights so it wasn't very noticeable, but had I not, it would have looked very bad.

This dress was an emergency backup dress for NYE. I was so relieved when it came because it looked great on. I had read the other reviews and knew to order a size up and was glad that I did. I am tall and the length wasn't too much of an issue.

Really stands out!!!!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress is so different and so stunning that it's really hard not to stand out. I got more compliments than I have ever gotten in my life. I wore a 6, which is what I usually wear, but I said it runs small because I have NO hips at all and it fit me perfectly around the hips while dresses are usually big on me in that area. So, if you have hips, size up. i found the top to fit my bigger chest quite nicely. It was a little snug, but not a big deal at all, easy to zip. I am only 5'2'' so the dress was perfect length on me, but I can see it being short on taller people. Pictures really don't do the dress justice. It is really nice material and very thick. You can tell it's expensive. The ONLY reason that I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because it is falling apart a little. I felt a little like a seamstress before wearing it. I had to trim the tweed on the top a lot because there were so many pulls and snags. Also, obviously the lining on my specific dress was torn and redone because it hangs about an inch lower than the dress so i had to pin it up. Also, when I got it, it reeked of perfume so I am questioning if it was actually dry cleaned. But really I love love love the dress...would buy it if I could.

I LOVED this dress; perfect for a fancy birthday dinner with friends

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
This dress was great! The gold with the black overlay was perfect for a January birthday dinner with friends. I was able to wear it with tights and tall boots. I wore the size I normally wear, however, the only reason I say it runs small is that it was a bit fitted around the hips and slightly bigger on top. I tried the 10 too, but it was too boxy so I wore the 8. I'd say get your back up size a size up just in case. I got a ton of compliments on the dress and it was super comfortable. It is short, so beware. I'm 5'5" so if you're taller, keep this in mind. My only feedback is that the lining underneath did peak out a bit at the bottom, and along the neck, but it didn't ruin my night.

Comfortable, classy, unique.

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I'd buy this dress if I could afford it. Wore to a Sunday evening NYC wedding. My size 2 was a little loose, so I'd recommend getting the 0/2 instead of the 2/4. There is an unnoticeable belt loop string and I wouldnt have even known it was there except that it got caught on my husband's shirt button while we were dancing. Luckily, no dress or shirt was harmed in the incident. Warning: If you tend to do things like that (which I do), the crochet could be a little on the delicate side but I wouldnt let that deter you from renting this beautiful dress.

This is definitely a dress you can relax in as long as you're not too tall, since it is a mini. I wore the 10 since the 8 wasn't available that day, but the 10 fit alright except (as you can see) a little bunching in the top area. The dress still looked fabulous and if you look at the third picture, you can see all its intricate details.

I felt fabulous in this dress!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wore this to an Alzheimer's Gala & loved it. I got so many compliments. It had the perfect amount of sparkle for an evening event. I tried the size 2 & 4. The 2 fit pretty similar to the 4 but was tighter around the hips & was a little uncomfortable when sitting, so I wore the 4. My only complaint about this dress was the black slip part underneath showed in some places at the bottom but I pinned it up before leaving the house & it was fine. Overall, this is a win!

I wore this to a winter wedding. The dress fit much better than I thought it would. I was nervous when I first saw it, but it turned out to be such a hit. I got so many compliments on my dress. It was a little loose around my chest. I am very self conscience since I had post baby weight still, but I felt like this dress made me look thinner than I was. I actually felt beautiful. :)

This dress fit true to size. The details of gold and black were stunning and photographed well. I got lots of compliments throughout the night. My only complaint was that it was a bit short. I ordered a 4 and 6 and wore the 4 because the 6 was not flattering, but the 4 was very short! Overall I loved it and would rent it again.

I really liked this dress! I am usually a 0 and I wore the 0, however, it was a little snug. I also had the size 2 and it was a little big. I stuck with the 0 and the dress underling kept riding up. It wasn't that big of a deal to me and I still loved it and received so many compliments on it!

Fantastic dress- first time ever using this system. Wore this the President's Box at a sporting event and had nothing but compliments all evening. (Sorry I don't have a full length photo!) Ordered both a 0 & 2. Size 0 was perfect- I'm 5' 6" and the hem line was exactly where it needed to be. Not to short as to look questionable but just short enough to make my legs look amazing. Paired with black pumps and simple jewelry- a classic look with a hint of pizzazz. My only regret is that I can't wear it for the same function! Totally recommended.

I rented this for a birthday outing in NYC - snug fit but very flattering - easy to move/dance in, lots of compliments - I didn't need to accessorize much, as the neckline is very sparkly (along with the rest of the dress). You can get away with wearing a regular bra in this, too. I accompanied with black/gold platform shoes. Very lightweight, I would highly recommend!

Size worn: 4

Beautiful dress! Fits tightly in the hips - I usually wear a 2 and the 4 was uncomfortably tight so make sure you order your second size up. Besides that it was the perfect dress for our event. It was a little short when I sat down but I think that is because it was a little small. Would definitely recommend this dress to anyone!

The dress fit great, but was too short for my comfort. I was concerned about the armpits rubbing being uncomfortable but it didn't bother me at all.

Great dress for Fall wedding

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I ordered this dress for a friends Fall wedding. The material was thick which was good. I think this dress runs a little but small, the 4 was very short and too tight - the fabric has no stretch. The 6 was a little loose in the shoulders but tight over my butt/legs. Overall the 6 fit well. I love RTR and plan to rent again!

This dress is fantastic. I received so many compliments at my work Christmas Party. A fellow renter even commented that she wanted to rent this dress after seeing it in person. I am typically a size 10, to fit my upper body (large shoulders), this dress fit perfectly and the length was great. It has so much more pop in person that it does on the website or in pictures. Will definitely be renting again if I have another winter event to attend!

Amazing doesn't begin to describe this dress!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I scoped this dress out 2 months ago and knew it was perfect for the winter wedding I attended! I ordered sizes 6 and 10 because the 8 was not in stock for that weekend. I usually run between a 6 and 8 depending on stretch of the dress, which this doesn't have much of and is true to size! However, I was able to wear the 6 comfortably. I have hips, so the dress was a tad tight in that area, but I was still able to sit and dance without issue. I paired it with black tights because I didn't want to be cold, but the dress was short so I wanted to look presentable. This dress outshines itself so minimal jewelry is good, so I wore gold studded earrings and nude shoes. I received over a dozen compliments throughout the night and from the bride! I did not want to return this dress, I wish I could have kept it!

dress was not flattering for my chest, I was able to zip it up but it squashed my girls into a weird shape. Material was not very yielding. And scratchy to the touch. Did not end up wearing it out.
