Beautiful colors
The blue in this dress was gorgeous. It was so much fun to wear. What looks like black in the picture is actually a dark brown (though black shoes will still work with it). It runs large, especially the straps, which could have been a good inch shorter. My dress did not come with the belt pictured (so an RTR specialist offered to refund the price of the dress) and it looked better without one than the stretchy belt I owned. The dress also ran long. Even with 2-inch heels it dragged the ground. I usually wear an 8 or 10 and could have taken a 6R in this dress. Even with the lack of belt and the large size, this dress was 5 stars. So cute, fun and different.

Not for me
This dress didn't flatter my body type. I have bigger hips, but am small chested, and although the top fit fine the pleating made my bottom half look huge. It's a cute dress, but the material also wasn't as fine as I would've liked for the occassion I was going to. Normally I'm a 6 or 8, and ordered both sizes. The 6 fit best, but again just didn't do anything for me. Did not receive the belt for either dress.

Beautiful dress for a semi-formal affair
This dress was sent as a back-up to the Nicole Miller Seaglass dress because my first choice size was not available. I was very close to wearing this one instead of the Nicole Miller, but I decided against it because it wasn't formal-looking enough. I think this dress would be perfect for a more casual formal affair, such as a beach wedding. I needed something for a University Gala however. Nevertheless, a beautiful dress with a stunning print!

I've been intimidated by maxi dresses, but I felt GLAM all evening
I'm not used to dresses having SO much material, but I loved the overall sleek modern look of the dress. Pairing with high wedges or heels is necessary. The fit was a little loose, but once again I wasn't used to how maxi's fit. I recommend renting this dress when the weather is a little cooler especially since the colors are great for fall and winter!

I felt really unique and extra stylish, while comfortable and elegant!
This wasn't an obvious pick for me, but so glad I rented it. It was very flattering and comfortable for an all day/evening wedding. The pattern and design of the dress are so unique and fashionable and tons of guests commented, saying "you always have the best dresses." So thanks RTR! I'm 5'6 and the 0R was still slightly long with 3 inch wedges so I would definitely plan to wear heels if you are around my height. It was the perfect dress for an early fall, beach wedding which was confusing to dress for.

PERFECT. The belt didn't come with the dress and RTR shipped it overnight just so I would have it
I ordered the 4R and it was really long. I had to wear 5 inch heels for the dress not to drag, but then again I am only 5' 2". The fit was normal and very comfortable.

Really long, the straps were a long too long too.

I have this dress rented for this weekend and was wondering what color/kind of shoes would you suggest wearing with it? Thank you so much!!

I would wear tall chocolate heels, maybe peep toe.

I rented this dress to celebrate the 4th of July (which is also my birthday) in D.C. It was perfect!
The only con: it was very long on me. (Both the zero and 2) In the picture I'm wearing my highest heels - and it was still dragging. Other than that, it was THE perfect birthday dress and a great first rental. I had a seamless experience throughout using RTR. Definitely looking for my Christmas party dress!

Tons of compliments wearing this maxi dress on game day!
It was more formal than I expected, but I still got lots of compliments from friends and strangers! I'm 5'3" and the regular was still too long in 4in" heels. I could have definitely gone a size down. The adjustable belt that it comes with makes a huge difference on fit. The fabric was nice a light for a beautiful, sunny day!

My personal stylist- extremely helpful and personal!
For my junior prom, I was thinking of getting a navy dress. I ordered two from this website and I figured at least one of them would work. When they didn't have one of the sizes I wanted, a stylist called us to figure out something else they could send. I told him that my prom would be on a boat, my date and I were wearing sperry's, and he was going to wear sersucker pants and a navy blazer. He instantly thought of this dress. At first I thought it might be too casual for prom. But then he sent the dress, two necklaces, and a clutch- free of charge! He sent a 2 and I usually wear 4's, so I was a little worried, but it was a perfect fit. I ended up using the Lulu Frost Vintage Know Necklace and it was the perfect way to make the whole look dressier. I couldn't have been happier!

Backyard Wedding
This dress is amazing!!!!! I have rented it twice and will likely rent again. It moves so effortlessly, that you appear to be floating or gliding. I recommend heels as I am 5'7 and ordered a regular size. Works fine with or without the belt, but the belt will move up and down, and requires adjustment. In sunlight the trim actually appears to be more brown than black, but it looked amazing regardless! RTR is great and I am looking forward to even more rentals.

Fun dress!!
Wore this to a friends bachelorette party in Southern California and it was the perfect dress that you could either dress up or dress down. Got a ton of compliments. Ran a little big so I would recommend sizing down...

Love this dress!
I was a little nervous because I am only 5'4 ... but the length was perfect with 2 inch heels. I am not busty, and it was a perfect fit in the chest -- so if you are bigger on top - you might have a slight issue. I received numerous compliments. Wish I could have purchased this one. I didn't want to send it back.

Confusing But Cute
I rented this dress as a sun dress for day time but upon arrival to my event was treated as though I had arrived in a ball gown. To make matters worse, I attended a formal event the following night and a gal was wearing this dress and evening wear. I guess it was my mistaken perception or perhaps by tendency to already dress a little inappropriately over-the-top for most occasions. Also, I thought the darker portion of the dress (gown?) was black and planned my accessories accordingly, but behold in natural light it was revealed to actually be chocolate brown. No one seemed offended but of course it had me down and out and unnecessarily apologizing to people all day. (Me: I'm sorry. I thought this was black when I left the house today. Others: What are you talking about?) Despite those insecurities, it really is a great dress and garnered many compliments following, "Why are you so dressed up today?"

Elegant and effortless
I ordered this for a museum after-hours art party (they're a big thing in DC) and felt beautiful the whole night! This is an elegant, yet effortless dress that can be dressed down or up depending on the occasion. I found the fit to be more or less true to size, although if you're between sizes, I'd go a size down. The skirt is forgiving for wider hips. I'm 5'6" and wore low-heeled sandals with this dress and the length was perfect. Slightly higher heels would have been fine, too.

I rented this dress for a wedding in Charleston, and it was perfect. I got tons of compliments. I am 5'9" and wore a 1 inch heel, and the length was fine. Will rent again!

looks great on!
The fabric and pleating is spectacular! For someone who normally wears a 14 in most clothes, it fit well, but would have looked a lot better if I was a true 12. The straps weren't awkward like I half expected them to be, and the overall vibe of the dress was great. My husband, who usually doesn't care one way or another about dresses, LOVED this one!! total win.

great dress!
So glad I rented this dress. I've never been complimented so many times on a dress before. A girl I didn't even know told me I was the best dressed at the wedding. I name dropped RTR so much I think the whole party knew what it was by the time the reception was over! ha! I would have liked to have ordered an additional size but they were all booked. So I went with the 8. It felt a little big so next time I would go with the 6. Mine was also missing the belt, so I had to add my own. The dress is actually chocolate brown (not black) but it works with black accessories. I threw a black sweater and a belt on later in the night and it looked fine. Overall, very happy! Oh, and I think it's super helpful to see non-models in the dress. Such a great feature. So you if love a dress please help the rest of us out and post!

Love this Dress
This dress was so pretty! It was long and very flowly, I wore it to a bridal shower and I kept getting asked where I got it. Belt was a perfect fit with it and I could wear a strapless bra with this dress.

I just kept being told how great I looked and how classy the dress was
I rented this dress for a summer backyard wedding and it was a hit. I got so many compliments. The only thing I would say about it is that it's quite long. I am 5'5" and wore 3 in heels, and the dress was still longer than I would have liked. It also runs slightly large, I ended up going with the 0R and it was a comfortable fit, maybe a little loose. I also preferred it without the belt. Overall, it was a great dress and made me feel amazing. Very lightweight and great for a warm day

This dress was one-a-kind in a sea of average Prom dresses, the cut was beautiful. I was getting compliments all night!
I LOVED THIS DRESS! I am 5'6" 140 pounds and ordered the size 6 and my main dress but I don't have a large chest (34 B) so I got the 4 just in case! The 6 fit well but I had just a little itsy bit of room around the waist and even with heels on it touched the floor exactly so it was a little too long. The 4 fit my waist perfectly and was about an inch and a half above the floor with heels. As far as how the dress looked it was STUNNING. The cut and the top made my shoulders look really slim and when you walk the pleats in the skirt look gorgeous. Best of all, no one had a dress at Prom that looked even close to mine! It can be dressed up or down, I absolutely recommend it 100%! The shipping was right on time and hassle free to send back!

Totally Unique
I wore this dress to my friend's wedding at the Long Beach Aquarium. I started getting compliments on it as soon as we left the parking structure to walk towards the wedding area. It was super comfortable so I could bust a move on the dance floor and have my fill of cake too.

Not the best for my body type
I wanted to love this dress but did not. One problem was that the belt was not included. I would not risk renting this dress unless you own a belt that matches, it looks weird without one and RTR does not always include it. The other problem was that it was too long and baggy on me, just not flattering. I think it would be stunning on the right person, though, and it's a very unique design.

I rented but didn't wear this dress. It's beautiful but wasn't long enough to wear with anything but flats. I wouldn't recommend this for anyone over 5'7" who wants to wear heels.

Flattering, unique dress!
I rented this for a summer dinner party - perfect for the beach setting! I'm a bit on the shorter side (5'4") so the dress ran a bit long, but if your heels are tall enough, it shouldn't be a problem. It was also a little snug in the chest area - but being a bit bigger in that region, I'm used to it. It still looked good anyway. The white fabric is a bit sheer, so make sure you have a light colored, strapless bra. Loved the pleating at the waist - really defines your midsection. Really quirky and beautiful dress!

I wore this dress to a black tie optional wedding and it was the perfect mix of casual and elegant. It was comfortable and easy to dance in. I wore it with 3" heels and it was the perfect length.

Loved this but couldn't wear it! The belt was missing, rtr let me know though!
Gorgeous. I would have worn it if it wasn't for the missing belt. I like to have some waist definition as I'm athletic (straight up and down, with broad shoulders and an ample chest). The black is more of a deep brown, so I didn't have a belt of my own that would have matched. Customer service was great though and they let me know. I was so sad not to be able to wear the dress- it is beautiful!!! Highly recommend!

I normally wear a 4 but that was too big and the 2 fit perfectly. I wore it to my sorority formal and it was so comfortable and not too casual.

I love RTR, it's my go-to for every occasion!
I absolutely loved the dress, the pattern and fabric and the fit up top was incredible. The only downfall was that it was still too long on me with 5 inch heels on, I had to hold it up all night or I would have been stepping on it

A friend of the family told me I looked absolutely gorgeous.
I wore this dress to a wedding rehearsal, and received countless compliments all night. I read the dress runs big. So, I requested a size 8 & 6, and the size 6 fit perfect. I had to shorten the straps with fashion tape, and with 4 inch heels the dress was still too long. I was very carefully not to step on the dress. Honestly, I didn't mind the extra attention to that small detail at all. I did not wear the belt provided, instead I wore a wide brown belt that I own. I truly believe this gave the dress an extra pop. I will rent this dress again!

I did not have the issue with length mentioned in other reviews. I wore 2.5 inch heels and it worked well. A back-up size was not available for me but if it was I would have chose a 0.

Amazing, fun dress!!
This dress was a little big, and very long but I was able to wear tall wedges and bought my own belt to make it tighter. I usually always wear a 4, and definatly needed a 2 in this dress, but I made it work! I absolutely loved this dress, and wore it to a wedding party. It's a keeper!

Art Deco Dress!
I orded this dress for a black tie party in sizes 8 and 10. The dress runs large and even the size 8 was a little big for me. The belts for the dresses were unavailable and RTR contacted me with plenty of time to select other back up options if I felt the belt was needed. I felt the dress required to belt to give it a blouse-like top and cinched waist. The dress was beautiful and I would gladly rent it in the future as long as the belt was available. I would wear it to a dinner party or wedding, but it did not feel formal enough for black tie to me . The dress was in like new condition and the colors were vibrant. AS others have mentioned, the dark color is chocolate brown and not black as it looks.
