Great dress for black tie wedding!

Glamorous dress with sequins on the straps and back! Was a bit long for me at 5'2" even in the petite length, so be sure to wear a heel with it if you're shorter.

Train was a little long and I would step on it while dancing- otherwise great dress for a winter black tie wedding

Walking the red carpet

Fits true to size. The 2 would have for better, but the button latch was broken on the size 2 they sent me. But very comfortable. Loved the length and train. Got MANY compliments. Would definitely rent again.

Beautiful dress

I was about 9 weeks pregnant with our 2nd child in this dress. I read some of the previous reviews and they stated that the dress was very forgiving in the abdominal area. I disagree. I felt like I had to try and keep it sucked in all night or I'd really look prego. It was a beautiful dress and very comfortable. I'm 5'3" and the 2R was the perfect length. It was a pretty good rental, though. Beautiful dress.

Perfect for prom!

Tighter up top than bottom, 6P had more durable zipper than 4P. Perfect length.

Perfect

I ordered this as a rush back-up because the original dress didn't fit. And I'm so glad! It was wonderful - hugged the body perfectly and still flowed. It is true to size, and the rouching even makes it forgiving. It was a spectacular dress. I was sad to return it!

My first personal RTR experience!

Perfect fit! The material stretches which made it easy to dance the night away. If you are lacking in the bust like I am, a padded push-up bra would be ideal...strapless and maybe even try the sticky ones. I had a regular strapless bra and it worked fine though. I wore my favorite 5" heels and the dress length was perfect. The train was a bit tricky when others followed too close behind and stopped me mid step. Lol! Felt beautiful all night! My sister and I love RTR

Dress fit like a glove and was my back up dress!

This was my backup dress after the dress I really loved was unavailable. It wasn't the dress I had hoped for, but I felt amazing in it anyway! It fit perfect and was much more flattering on than I anticipated!

I loved the dress!!!!

The dress for great!!! I Ioved it and got compliments on it all night. The only negative thing is that the zipper would not stay zipped. My mom put a safety pin in and hid it and that worked well. Other than that it was great!

Great dress! It was perfect for a Black Tie wedding.

The dress fit great! I'm about 5'3" and rented the Regular length and it was still a little long even with my heels. But over all great dress and very comfortable!

I wore this for a Casino Royale event. I definitely felt like I was going to a 007 set!

I'm 5'5" and 32B with an athletic build. It was incredibly comfortable to dance in and wear. I wore with platform heels adding height which was perfect for the length.

How comfy this dress is!

The dress is elegant and simple, perfect for a black tie wedding. Temps were around 80 degrees and the dress was comfortable to mill around in. I didn't have to wear a bra , I wore three inch heels and the dress was only an inch too long but not not so long I trip, the material moves with you, the straps stay in place (although having a bit more there helps the fit), and I did get compliments throughout the evening. I wore the size2r, and although a bit longer than floor length, the rest fit like it should. I could have gotten away with the size0r because the length would have been ideal, and it fit like a glove, but wasn't as forgiving for dancing.

I felt like a princess in this gorgeous dress!

Fit perfectly. I'm 5'4" and wore 4" heels with this dress. It barely grazed the ground which is perfect. The button on the back kept unbuttoning, but it was nothing a safety pin couldn't fix. Sequins were not uncomfortable at all and didn't rub like the sometimes can around the arms. Gave me a beautiful profile.

I didn't end up using this dress. :/

Did not work with my 7month baby bump. It was stretchy and the 8 and 10 both fit, but had to return due to zipper looking funky. I would definitely re-rent not prego.

Told by many we were the epitome of old Hollywood glamour.

It was a good length with heels...almost short, but I wore 5" heels. Felt like the fit was sexy and classy for a black tie optional wedding. Cleavage was appropriate as I am busty. Plenty of space in the thigh area for comfort; we danced the night away! The fabric is light weight and not too hot. Loved the dress!

I was hesitant at first to rent a dress that I couldn't try on! But the dress fit like a glove!!!

I am 5'1 and often have to get dresses tailored. The length on this dress was perfect I ordered a 2R and it didn't drag and I didn't have to keep picking it up all night! I felt so glamour-is in it I received compliments all night! I will definitely be renting again!!!

Didn't wear it but it fit perfectly.

I ended up not choosing to wear this dress, but this dress certainly made it hard to choose! I loved it! Very classy, flattering and at a 5' 2" height, it was nice to have an dress option that would accommodate flats or a small heel.

Only had dress I originally ordered in size 6, so they chose 2 similar dresses in size 8!

This was a really comfortable gown. very lightweight and length was perfect with 4 inch platform heels. I didn't have to wear a bra either because it was very form fitting and sequin straps help up the dress nicely.

Compliments, compliments, compliments!

I received so many compliments for this dress!! I picked it out for a black tie wedding (venue not pictured). And I couldn't have been happier! It fit pretty well and I don't think I've received so many nice comments and questions about where I got the dress. Only things that I wish were different.. The zipper buckles a little in the back so I felt like I was constantly checking to make sure it laid flat. The dress also turns, so the seams were not where they were intended and I had to keep going to fix it. The zipper is black! And not silver like in the picture. The sequins also didn't bother me as much as I was expecting. Super happy about my choice for a NYE black tie wedding.

The dress had no odd fit issues. I felt great in the dress. It actually was one that RTR selected for me because the gown I wanted was returned in bad shape. So glad they did too! I'm sure this one looked way better than the one I wanted originally.

Loved this sexy, easy to wear gown for a formal occasion!

Fit is true to size, length was good for me with 3" heels, and was a really easy dress to wear! I went with spanx-esque pantyhose but the dress itself helped even out little lines and what not too. I love the neckline - makes it a little different than the other black dresses in the room. This is an awesome go-to for formal functions!

N/A

Fits true to size. Material is flattering, thick and pulls stylishly in all the right places. The open back is sleek and sexy, got plenty of compliments! The 6P fit but was tighter on my bottom half so I went with the 8P for more breathing room. Petite length worked well for me, at 5'3 in 4 inch heels the 8P was comfortably floor length. Perfect dress for a black tie optional event, which is what I rented it for. The dress was pretty worn as received which is why I give 4 stars, but not noticeably to anyone else.

Perfect dress for black tie wedding

Easy to wear, very flattering. I wore the 4L with 4 inch heels and the length was perfect. I could have worn a 6L, but it wasn't available and the dress was stretchy enough that the 4L worked as well. Regular length was way too short.

Much too long!

The description said for a woman of 5'1 it would fit with 3 inch heels. Well I am 5'1 and I had to buy 5 inch heels plus hem it another 2.5 inchs with double sided tape so I wouldn't trip on it! I also found it a little loose in the shoulders. I was so concerned the size 2 was going to be too small b/c of all the comments if the dress running too small. The middle section did fit nice, but all around I think the zero would have fit better

Great customer service!

I loved this gown. This was my first RTR experience. I was happy that I ordered a size down in this dress because I felt it ran large, as a I usually wear a 4R. The fabric was comfortable and flattering. I received many compliments and I didn't want to send the dress back! I would definately recommend. I am pear shaped and I felt that it was a flattering choice for my waist and butt, it did minimize my top half but overall I felt great in the gown! You do need a strapless bra. One thing I noticed that was different between the model photograph and the actual dress was the zipper in the back- in the model's image, there is an invisible zipper but in the actual dress the zipper is silver and obvious. I didn't mind this but it was one difference I noticed. Also, after a night of dancing the inside of my arm was scratched up from all of the sequins. Again, not a big deal. I would certainly rent this dress again.

When I walked out of the bedroom after getting dressed and my date had no words but WOW!

I wore this to a charity ball that had a "red carpet" theme. I wore the 10 then switched to the 8 later in the evening as the 10 loosened up a bit. The 8 was perfect! I had so many compliments all night long and I felt amazing! It was truly a beautiful dress!!

A nice safe dress

The dress was nice and very safe, but nothing major. It's also not the best choice for women with a small waist and big hips. I got the size 10, but that was just too big, the size 8 was snug around my hips, loose in the waist area. My measurements are 36D-28-47

I went to the Metropolitan Opera's Spring Gala with my Mom and felt absolutely beautiful!

Although it is a very simple dress the slight shimmer detailing was very elegant and it was so comfortable. I wish I had rented a 4 and a 2 actually as even the 4 was a little loose but I think it was the correct size for me. I may even rent this dress again for another black tie gala I have in January I loved it so much!
