Gorgeous dress and great fit.
Got tons of compliments - the lace was a bit worn on the sleeves, however, with a tear on the right side (barely noticeable to anyone but me, though). A bit shorter than I expected, but it hit mid-thigh as displayed on model. I am just shy of 5'5". Wedding-appropriate and slimming. Looked great in photos.

This dress made me feel absolutely gorgeous!
As other reviewers posted - it is snug in the arms, but they do stretch eventually. I am usually a size 4 but wore the 6 as the 4 was a little constricting. I received a ton of compliments and loved how this dress fit and it had pockets - always a plus!

So disappointed I couldn't wear it.
I usually wear a size 2-4 depending on the dress and I had both of those sent to me. Unfortunately the lace on the arms just didn't have any give and I couldn't fit into the sleeves. The rest of the dress could've worked and felt great (albeit tight around the waist). A size 6 I think would've worked fine but it wasn't available at the last minute.

3.5 stars/Perfect for the occasion
Arms were very tight! Definitely size up. Got a ton of compliments & my favorite part was the neckline I even went back into the Georgetown store to try to exchange but didn't see anything that I liked enough to switch (also received pretty subpar service). Love RTR overall but this last rental was the least-fun/smooth.

Tight in the arms
I have muscular arms and should have read more reviews. Both the sizes I orders zipped up and looked fine, but I couldn't move my arms at all in either size. Since it was for a wedding where there would be dancing, I opted not to wear it. Just consider a different dress if you have broad shoulders or larger arms!

Got compliments on this dress. Was fairly comfortable.
If you're busty I would go a size up. Also, because of this if you're busty at all the arms will feel tighter too. The length was perfect it hit a few inches above my knee.

I wore this to a small, intimate winter wedding.
This dress fit perfectly! The length and shape absolutely fit like a glove. A lot of times I need to have dresses shortened or taken in at the waist or shoulders, but this dress fit right off of the hanger. I normally run between a size 6 or 8, the size 8 fit great. I was worried that the arms would be tight, as many commented on that, but even the arms were a great length and not too tight at all. It was the perfect dress for an intimate wedding dinner and even worked for the Irish bar after party - I received so many compliments and didn't want to return the dress at the end of the weekend!

I wanted to standout as a "star" (this was a premier for an indie movie I did). I feel like I did!
I have a larger rib cage and broader shoulders so it was a tight fit but it worked. I would say that this is a true "New York" 4 and I'm a good "North Carolina" 4! :)

I wore this dress to an evening wedding in February.
The dress looked gorgeous in photos. I saw the reviews and this was one of the reasons why I chose this dress. And it was truly beautiful. Being a brand new mom, I have some problem areas I am not used to having.. arms, thighs, and mid section. This dress complimented all the right areas. All the reviews are right, the dress is a little snug in the arms and bust section. But the dress does quickly loosens up as you wear it. I originally thought I would be a size 4. But I am so glad I chose to have the 6 as a backup. I ended up wearing the size 6 to be comfortable. ALSO.. the dress has hidden pockets. I love dresses that are beautiful and secretly functional.

Lovely Lace
I wore this dress to an evening wedding in South Florida and received so many compliments on it! I rented a 4 and 6 and ended up wearing the 4. The arms were a little tight, but I didn't feel uncomfortable and it didn't prevent us from dancing the night away. My favorite part of the dress that I didn't realize until the night was almost over....it has pockets! Perfect for your phone and lipstick. I would definitely recommend this dress.

Very pretty dress for a winter wedding
I'm 5'9", 140lbs. I ordered the free extra size in a different dress so only ordered an 8 in this one; I suspect a 6 would have worked too. It's really cute, I got a ton of compliments. Pockets are fun too. Wore it to a February wedding so I wore tights under it. It's a little on the short side, I think I would have felt ok without tights at a cocktail party, but not at a wedding, plus the tights made me feel more comfortable on the dance floor in particular. The back is really nice (V back so the top is open). Very comfortable, really pretty neckline. Definitely a good decision!

I wore this dress to my sister-in-law's winter wedding and received TONS of compliments.
The dress was very comfortable- appropriate in length, soft material, and I loved the pockets! The garment I received was quite worn (hole in the arm, fraying lace, etc.), but it wasn't noticeable to anyone other than me. I was very glad to have ordered the size up- this dress definitely runs small, particularly in the arms. The nude lining on the dress has a sweetheart neckline, which made wearing a normal bra a bit difficult. I chose to wear a nude colored bra rather than a strapless and it wasn't noticeable under the lace. Overall- I loved this dress and would definitely rent it again!

This dress was stunning! It was a little tight in the chest area but it was ok as I went to a rehearsal dinner. Would have been difficult if dancing was involved. The dress was in great shape and I'd rent it again!

Easy ordering, dresses arrived ahead of schedule and were more beautiful in person!
Fit like a glove! I am a little busty and needed the bigger size (8 instead of the 6). The dress was more for a short torso - I am longer in the middle - but it was perfect for my occasion. I wore it to an awards banquet being held my local Chamber of Commerce to honor members who have been nominated. I won for my category and felt like a rockstar in this dress going up to the stage! Nothing bad to say; this was a great convenience and the product ended up being extremely beautiful. The lace detail is very feminine and the material underneath is a perfect shade of gold. The only con to mention, it was a tad shorter than I expected but it still looked amazing and I received many compliments on it! Nobody knew it was a rented dress!

I wore this for my husband's work holiday party. Very appropriate and pretty.
The arms were a little tight and there is not much room on top if you are busty, but it works. I wore a strapless bra.

Pretty From A Distance
This dress is lovely, but renters beware! The lace is extremely delicate, do not be surprised if the dress looks tattered or has rips. I usually wear a size 4, I rented the 4 and 6. The four was in pretty good shape but wouldn't even pull up over my arms, the 6 fit perfect but was in poor shape. I have a larger bust, and did not have time to find a strapless bra that would work with the low back, bra less was not the best look for me, and had a uniboob. Overall, I did enjoy wearing the dress to the company cocktail party, it is a gorgeous dress!

Great dress! Got SO many compliments!
I wore this dress to a cocktail attire engagement party. I usually just buy a dress in hopes that I will get multiple wears out of it... but let's be real... once it's on social media, you're not wearing it again! I used a 20% off code and got the dress SHIPPED for $40. I read the reviews and heard that it ran small in the arms- super true. I usually always wear a 4 with no problem. The 6 was unavailable for the weekend I wanted so I ordered the 4 and hoped for the best. I almost cried when I tried it on for the first time because the arms were so tight but it loosened up A LOT throughout the night. The 4 ended up being fine. I'm sure the 6 would have been better but I was comfortable all night. Would rent this dress again in a heartbeat!

Both the 4 and the 2 fit. The 2 was a little snug but I made it work since there was a tear in the size 4. Overall, this is a great dress for any event - it's simple but the open back adds a touch of surprise. I'd highly recommend it!

This dress is stunning!
I wore this to a friend's wedding, and received so many compliments, and requests to find out where I got it. My boyfriend has even since asked if I wanted to wear that to his holiday party, not realizing I didn't own it. It's gorgeous, but it's snug. I ordered 6/8 and wore the 8, but wish I had ordered 8/10. I like this dress so much I might consider renting again.

Beautiful dress!!
I rented the 6 but wore the 8. Like others said, it is tight in the arms but loosens as the night goes on. The 6 would have worked but I couldn't get the zipper up of my bust...and Im not a big busted girl. I went with the 8 and was very comfortable. I would absolutely rent this dress again!

Black Tie / NYE Ready!
I wasn't 100% thrilled when I first tried the dress on, it's a tricky fit if you're very pear-shaped. The size 6 fit pretty well across the hips but there was a bit of pulling that made the slip show at certain angles, and there was more room in the waist than I'd prefer. However after pulling together the full outfit and wearing tights underneath helped a lot with getting a smoother fit. The dress looked beautiful at a quasi-black tie NYE wedding and was a very classy style. The lace was really pretty and I loved the neckline! Probably a better fit for people straighter in the hips, but fuller hips can still wear just go with the larger size. People were spot on about the arms being tight but the fabric is stretchy so it's still comfortable.

This dress was great! I wore it to my company Xmas party and I got so many compliments on it! I ordered the 6 and the 8 just in case! The only reason I ended up in the 8 was b/c the lace sleeves on the 6 were a little tighter on my arms! Loved this dress!

This dress is beautiful. The delicate lace detail really makes it special.
I got so many compliments on this dress! The dress fit true to size through the chest and waist, but the sleeves are quite tight. If you are athletic and have bigger arms this could be a problem. The lace is so delicate (which is what makes it so pretty!) which meant it was a little worn in places (I'm pretty sure only I could tell). It has pockets, which were super nice for my phone. Overall this dress was a conservative length on me, but the lace is just enough to make it still feel a little sexy. Would definitely rent this one again!

Got so many compliments! Loved the pockets and it fit great.
The only issue was the snap button on the top of the zipper, it wouldn't stay closed, but luckily I had someone keeping an eye on the zipper so it wouldn't fall down. Otherwise everything was great!
