This dress was even more beautiful than expected. The details are gorgeous. Many compliments!
Great A-line fit was comfortable for dancing. I felt it was a bit short when bending down or sitting- though not to the point of being inappropriate for the event.

Lovely
Length was great, even with heels. Did not wrinkle throughout the whole night! It was ever-so-slightly tight across the chest, but not nearly enough to warrant going up a size because it fit perfectly everywhere else. The color could potentially wash someone out, depending on skin tone. Looks great with a tan. Really unique, so I felt very special wearing it!

Great Quality Dress.
I wore this to a rehersal dinner and it was a huge hit. The colors and quality are great. The fit was true to size. It was a great dinner dress, not sure how it would be as a dancing dress.

Perfect dress for my bridal shower brunch!
This dress is very pretty, has a great fit, and is extremely comfortable. The sweet "stepford wife" vintage look it absolutely spot on, while still adding a sexy flair. I got two sizes, 2 and 4, and ended up wearing the 2, but it was pretty true to size.

FABulous Dress!!!
I absolutely love, love, love this dress! I wore it to an evening wedding in June and it was a hit. The bride even commented on it :) All of the reviews before mine are pretty accurate. I recently transitioned to a 6 from years of being an 8. While the 6 did fit, I had a little more room to breath in the 8. This is a very pretty dress and it made me feel very pretty in it. The clutch that I rented to go with it was a PERFECT match! They are made with the same material.

Such an easy and pleasant experience renting with RTR!
This Milly dress is made with beautiful lightweight fabric. I loved the ruffle detail at the top and the black band around the waist. Convenient side zipper.

The RTR experience is unlike any other!
The dress is much prettier in person. The fit was wonderful. I only had two issues with the dress itself. It's very short (which I knew from the pictures and wasn't an issue unless sitting when I felt I might be showing too much) and the slip lining kept showing which I was able to fix with the fabric tape RTR sent. I got many compliments and felt great. Additionally, I had to use customer service twice and each time the rep. was a nice and as helpful as could be and solved my problem quickly. I will definitely use RTR again when I have an opportunity to dress up.

Beautiful design--material not as high quality
I rented this dress for Thanksgiving weekend, it was my "backup" dress. I loved my original rental so much that I ended up wearing this out with old friends to a nightclub. The dress is really beautiful in the photo. It looks very high quality and luxurious. In person, the fabric felt a little synthetic. It was still beautiful but the flowers felt almost "tissue" like, very thin and flimsy. I still wore the dress and it looked pretty. I got a ton of compliments, it looks very prim and proper. Overall, I wouldn't rent it again, just because it didn't "thrill" me like some other dresses on here have. But the fit was nice, only complaint was type of fabric used.

Ill Fitting
Small in size. Unflattering. Normally an 8, the 10 was even too small. Glad I ordered a back up dress, since that is what I ended up wearing!

Perfect day-to-night!
Wore this dress for homecoming - it was perfect with cowboy boots and a sweater for the game, then changed into black heels for the formal that night! Runs like most Milly dresses - definitely recommend ordering a size smaller than usual for a backup.

Great back up dress but a bit snug
Rented this dress as a back up but never wore it. The collar on the dress I received was a bit worn out and the front ruffle squished but some ironing/steam would probably help that. The dress runs true to size but it is a tight squeeze.

Loved the dress for a wedding rehearsal dinner party. I'm busty so top was a bit tight. Taped the lining hem up because it peeped.

A great fit!
I wore this dress to a wedding and it was great! I was a little concerned about the length but it was perfect even with heels. I also had a light cardigan with me in case it was chilly and the dress would go with several colors, for example a cream or gray. I would definitely consider renting it again if not purchasing it!

Great dress for a holiday party. Beautiful fabric and details. Got a lot of compliments !
Great dress! I was unaware that it had to be worn fully buttoned in the top because if not the attached slip shows. Don't get me wrong it looks beautiful when worn this way but any big busted girl knows that buttons are the enemy. The top was a struggle to get closed and I was worried that I would pop a button all night. Other than that the fit was great everywhere else, it even could have been a little tighter around the waist which is why even though I ordered a larger second size I didn't use it because I was swimming in it. It's a beautiful dress and looks super chic and classy on but I would caution ordering if your bust is size D or more.

The dress was flirty and sexy without being revealing. I danced all night!
The dress was the perfect length for my height. A fabulous combination of classy, fashionable, and fun.

The picture doesn't do the dress justice!
The fabric of this dress was great quality and even had some shimmer. The length was just right and the waist was a perfect fit, even almost too loose. The only problem I had was the bust. I am a 34 DD/DDD, The fabric had no stretch so some of the buttons had to be undone. The clevage was too much for the event I was going to but would have been just fine for a party or date. I was sad not to wear it but I highly recommend it for the appropriate event!

Very pretty, but too small!
I rented this for my twelve year old daughter who typically wears a 00 or 0. The dress was beautiful...such beautiful fabric; however, it was way too small. She could not even zip it. So, we lost the rental price :(.

So many compliments!
I loved this dress and would love to actually own it! I would recommend renting a size up for your backup if you have hips (like me). I wore it with footless black tights because it was winter in St Louis for an interview dinner. Looked really cute with my heels and peacoat over top when in outside weather. The dress actually has a slip attached underneath, so the top can be buttoned or unbuttoned depending on the look you're going for. Def worth a rental!

Great dress for my wedding shower!
This dress was perfect for my wedding shower! I got so many compliments on it! The only issue with it was that it was pretty short, but still covered everything. Also, I thought the dress looked more pink in the picture, but it is actually more of a metallic tan color. Would love to rent again!

Perfect dress for a wedding and a night out!
This dress was perfect for a wedding. It was comfortable and classy and I received a lot of compliments. Like some of the other reviews mentioned, the collar doesn't stand up like it does in the picture, but it is still an adorable dress.

Did not arrive in time.
I was really disappointed. This dress arrived a day later than it was supposed to and unfortunately, I had to leave for the wedding. It's a really cute dress; very short though, so be aware.

Loved the dress! Loved the service too! I was nervous that it wouldn't arraive on time, but it did! The Dress is a little bit more shiny in person. and I had to steam the collar down. I ordered the 2 sizes and ended up with a larger size because it felt more comfortable. I received so many compliments on it. WIll RENT AGAIN!!

The dress was beautiful and true to size, the zipper was tricky though, trying to get it over the spot where the 'belt' is took A LOT of work; I've found this with all Milly dresses, so that's a little annoying. Would rent again though!

I was not impressed with this dress. The smaller size that fit well in the waist was way too tight in the bust. The larger size fit in the bust but did nothing for my waist. I wouldn't recommend this dress for larger busted ladies. Also, the zipper is difficult to zip past the waistband. I returned both sized without wearing either.

The color and fabrics in the dress were beautiful in person. The skirt portion in particular was very forgiving and flattering. It was comfortable all night, and very cute with tights since it's a tiny bit short for ultra conservative events. I ended up wearing the larger of the two sizes I got because the smaller fit perfectly everywhere, except the bust (it was VERY tight and I'm not busty), so make sure you get a size up just in case. I would definitely recommend this dress.

Great dress for a conservative affair!
LOVED this dress!! I am 5'4" and my measurements are 34-26-35. I rented a size 2 and a size 4. For some strange reason the 4 felt snugger on me than the 2, so I went with the 4. Maybe it was stretched from a lot of wear? But I wore this dress to my wedding shower and received MANY compliments on it! I also had to iron down the collar, it looks much better and is not as annoying. I highly recommend this dress!

This dress is perfect. I tend to run between a 4 and a 6, and the 4 fit like a glove. I wore this for a rehearsal dinner in a wedding which I was a bridesmaid, and it was a big hit! Since it was in October, I paired with it with black tights, black pumps, and a black leather jacket with ruffles to match the lace up top. I didn't want to send this one back!! Highly recommended!!

I didn't really like this dress. The built it slip is only attached at the shoulders makign the dress hard to get on. I am a 34C and wore a size 4 and the bust was too tight. I had SUCH a hard time getting the zipper up, also. I have had this problem with Milly in the past. This dress is really made for a pear shaped girl with a small bust.

Lovely dress. I'm usually in between 4 and 6. I went with the 6 because the 4 was a little tight on the chest. I received many compliments. I wore the dress with black tights and black pumps. The only reason i removed a star is because the dress i received had a torn seam by the zipper. It wasn't too noticeable so i wore the dress anyway. Overall, not a bad first rental.
