Classic dress
This dress fit really well. I'm petite so it came right to my knee. I put a skinny black belt on it to give it a little shape. I was able to wear this during the day to a meeting and with a change of shoes and a little more jewelry to a formal evening event. Loved it.

elegant but still a little flirty
i've tried on nearly every lace dress i could and most of the sleeves do not fit my arms but this dress was the exception (whew!) I wore the dress to an outdoor dusk wedding.

This dress was amazing!!
The dress fits very true to size, and looks great belted. It is a little short on a taller woman, so I wore it with flats to make it wedding appropriate. I received a ton of compliments and felt comfortable dancing all night in it!

I love that belt! where did you buy it?

Thank you! It's actually my mom's snake skin Liz Claiborne belt from the 80s. Very random, I know :)

Loved it!
I ordered the 2 and the 4. I could have worn the 4, belted but I chose to just wear the 2. I thought it ran a bit big as I usually wear a 4. Also, I'm pretty short and while the length was ok on me, it may be on the sorter side for girls with longer legs. I thought it was a beautiful dress and I got a lot of compliments on it. Very happy with this rental!

Classy, sophisticated dress.
Loved wearing this dress. I found it fit true to size. It's more fitted on the bottom than the top. It's super easy to wear, and perfect for a fall wedding.

I'm newly obsessed with this site! So easy and convenient and STYLISH.
Runs big, especially around waist. I wore a skinny black belt with it to prevent it looking too frumpy. Overall quality was great and I got a lot of compliments. The style notes were very accurate, I only wished I would have rented some of the suggested accessories to go along with it.

I thought the dress was pretty, but it wasn't exactly what I expected.
It fits true to size, but I added the belt to bring it all together. I am very straight and narrow so without it I was somewhat lost in the dress. I needed it to give the illusion of a waist and hips. Overall, I thought the dress was cute. I was just slightly disappointed because I was hoping for something more for my own wedding rehearsal dinner. Either way, I still felt beautiful.

feeling spectacular in a gorgeous dress that was so easy to find!
As most people commented on this, it runs large. I have been losing pregnancy weight so was a little unsure of what size I would be but based on the pictures and comments went with the 4. The 2 was unavailable as a backup (I didn't think I could fit in it but thought I'd check). I'm not sure if the 2 would have fit but there was a little room in the 4. I also think this is part of the style of the dress. I felt very pretty and because fo the nature of the dress, did not feel like I had to even wear much jewelry. It was great by itself. The tag area in the bag was a little itchy but I managed. Overall, loved it. And would wear this dress again.

This dress was exactly what I was looking for. I would definitely rent from here again!
This dress was romantic and it was still a little spicy. It was definitely scary since I have never rented from here before. The dress ran large, I ended up wearing the smaller size that I ordered. For anyone who is looking to rent this dress, I usually wear a six and I ended up wearing a 4. I hope this helps :) I love RTR!

Loved wearing this dress - great for a fancy fall wedding (especially in Maine!)
The top fit very well and the skirt just skimmed my hips (which is usually a problem area for me) so fit was very good. The material was not scratchy like I feared. Only mild complaint is that lace dresses are so trendy right now there were probably 5 other ladies with some kind of lace dress - but no one had the exact same as mine and I still got lots of complements. Overall great experience

Pretty, classic dres that can be worn a lot of different ways; dressed up or down!
Definitely order a size down! I normally wear a 2 and sometimes a 4, but I was swimming in the 2. I wish I had gotten a 0 as my back-up size. I wasn't able to wear the 2, even with a belt. I would definitely rent this dress again in the smaller size.

This was the perfect dress for an upscale outdoor wedding.
I should have rented two sizes and I think the 8 would have fit better. I put a skinny black belt with it and that really tied the dress together. Without the belt it was pretty baggy. I got lots of compliments on the dress and felt really comfortable in it all night. I just paired it with a simple bracelet and black pumps.

Classy with just the right amount of sex appeal :)
Beautifully crafted dress! Because of my figure this dress definitely needed to be cinched a little at the waist with a belt because I'm not quite super model thin to pull it off on its own. But I thought his dress was perfect for a wedding! The beautiful lace is flattering and delicate. Some ladies may not like how short the dress gets when you cinch it up with a belt so be wary of this dress's length. The only reason I gave it 4 stars out of 5 is because the sleeves lost some of their shape right at the elbow as the day wore on so it made it look a little sloppy (but maybe this isn't the perfect dress for a gal with a bit of muscle on her arms). Really, it's a great dress.

Beautiful dress but doesn't really flatter curvy figures.
I loved the look of the dress but I found that my backup dress from RTR fit my body type better. This dress was very boxy even after I added a belt. However, it did comfortably fit my bust which was a concern of mine when initially renting the dress.

I didn't want to return this dress!
This dress was PERFECT! The material is very high end- not scratchy at all - and fit very well. It is a shift dress so if you are going for a more fitted look, you can easily put a belt on over it. I put a nude colored belt and nude pumps on with it and it was adorable. The length was great for my 5'2" frame. I received compliments on it all night and I'm already trying to find an occasion so I can rent this dress *again*. Thanks RTR!

I wore this dress to a friend's wedding and received so many compliments throughout the night!
I am in between a size 2 and 4 for dresses and pants and had both sizes shipped. The two was a little bit looser on me than I had anticipated but I paired it with a black patent leather belt, and it looked great. It is an absolutely beautiful dress and I was honestly a little bit sad when I had to put it back in the mail on monday morning!

Pretty but forgettable
The size 0 fit except the right shoulder felt tight and puckered as if it had been repaired, so I would have worn the size 2 which was only slightly larger. The nude liner did not hang lower than the lace like in the photo which was preferable. The dress was a bit more fitted than a shift dress and is short - it was short on me and I have short legs! Overall a beautiful dress but not dressy enough for auction gala I attended so I wore my backup.

I wore this dress for a rehearsal dinner. I loved how this dress looked in photos!
I received lots of compliments on this dress. However, I was disappointed with the overall fit. The sleeves were too big and the dress was unflattering without a belt. If you have the right accessories this dress can work

Dress is very pretty, but has a very boxy fit. It might work better on a curvier figure than mine.

Very classic for a fall wedding.
Make sure you pair this with a belt - the shift was kind of baggy, so it would look ok without one, but definitely better cinched at the waist. I'd almost order a size down.

This dress was super comfortable and ultra feminine, the perfect dress for any evening affair.
I wore this dress for a cocktail rehearsal dinner and received tons of complements. The dress on its own is a little shapeless so I added a belt to define my waist line.

Gorgeous lace, but fit is very boxy and doesn't have a shape. Runs large.
I rented this along with another dress I rented for my friend's bridal shower. I loved the lace but this dress is very boxy, and does not have a shape. When belted, it did not look flattering on a large bust. I was surprised of the stretch of the dress. It definitely ran large, and was especially baggy in the arms and the waist. I wanted to love this dress, but I ended up wearing the other dress I choose instead!

Most unforgettable? When I held this dress up in front of my fiance, it looked big on HIM.
This dress runs extremely large. I tried to choose one with many positive reviews from petite women like myself but in the end, the dress was just too large for my small frame to be presentable and I ended up wearing something from my own closet to the wedding. I will say that the scalloping along the hem looks very pretty against the legs and I wished that I could have worn the dress from the waist down. On top, it was a bag. The lace is also a bit cheaper looking in person. Overall, this rental was a disappointment for me. Be aware if you are considering this dress: If you're 100 lbs or less, it will look like you borrowed from your grandma's closet. :(

When I was told I was the best dressed of the night
This dress was so stunning; the lace was an amazing quality, and the fit was modest, perfect for my formal occasion! I ordered the 4 and 6, and ended up wearing the 4 with a black patent belt to give the dress some shape, because alone it isn't the most flattering. The dress definitely runs large, but I was very happy with how the outfit turned out. My only regret is that this was the only picture of the night!

I think this dress looks best a little over-sized and belted. I got a 6 and an 8 and the 8 definitely looked better - more appropriate length and shape in general.

Love this dress
I wore this for a fall wedding and received tons of compliments from complete strangers. Loved this dress, and would definitely wear it again. Fit like most reviews said it would, it doesn't give you much of a shape, but I still really liked it without a belt. I have long legs, so i was a little concerned about the length... it was perfect though!

This dress was perfect for my Semi Formal! Perfect balance of fancy yet casual.
I loved this dress! The arms were a little tight and it was a tiny bit baggy in the stomach but a belt easily fixed it. Also was a little shorter than I would have liked but still would rent it again.

Easy, Classic, and Sexy
The dress is sexy yet conservative. I wore this for an event at conservative country club. It's short and perfect for the more petite person. It hit me between mid thigh and knee. My only word of warning is that the dress goes up a little when I raised my arms...so if you are tall and planning a lot of dancing or arm raising, be careful! But I loved it and am thinking of renting it again.

Looked great and super comfortable
This dress fit very large and I felt like I could have gone down another size if it was available. I wish it had a better shape , it fit very straight down. The length was great - not too short, but not too long so that it was frumpy. I was very comfortable in it and could dance the night away with no problem!

In love with this dress!
I loved wearing this dress. The lace was beautiful and looked very high quality. The fit was very comfortable. The size 2 fit me but was a little too form fitting and short for the wedding I was going to so I went with the 4 for a slightly looser fit. I suggest wearing it with a belt- otherwise it can be a little shapeless in the mid section. I received lots of compliments and did not want to send this dress back.

Classic and Comfortable!
I loved this dress, enough that I wanted to buy it (just not for $400!). My husband loved it as well. It was classy and comfortable, and I danced the night away. It came with the original tags still on it, packed well, and got tons of compliments. Things you should know: It fits loosely through the middle, but belting it would make it VERY short (and I am 5'2"). People say you can wear a regular bra with it, but that bra should be nude or black because it shows just a tad at the shoulders where the lining has spaghetti straps and the boat neck occasionally shifts to one side. You have to pull it on over your hair!! Lifting your arms all the way up will cause you to flash people. I had a problem with my original order, which didn't show up on the day it was suppose to (which was the day after a holiday). The guy I worked with at RTR located this dress, my back-up dress and sent a third dress in another size. He had them sent overnight and they arrived before noon on a Saturday, literally one hour before I left. So, I have mixed feelings on the service!

Comfortable & Classy
Great for the fall wedding I attended! classy and chic! I loved the 1/4 length sleeves for the cooler time of year! I ordered a 2 and a 0, thinking I'd wear the 2 (my normal size) but the 0 actually fit perfectly and was not too short or tight. I do have pretty slender arms though and although sleeves were not tight at all, if you have athletic or bigger arms, etc, may need to go up a size.

Fit pretty well but may have been able to wear next smaller size. Ran a little large through the midsection but not enough to really matter.

Cute
I rented this dress for a wedding but ended up not wearing it because I didn't have a belt to pair with it. It definitely needs something at the waist to give it some shape. It also was a little too short were you would have to be careful all night when trying to sit down as well. My rentals did not make it in time for my event and rent the runway was great about giving me a full credit. Awesome customer service!

Fit great post-pregnancy!
I had just had a baby 6 days before wearing this to a theater performance! I didn't know what size to order, so I ordered a size 0 and 2 (I usually wear a 0), and the 2 fit perfectly (with spans under, of course). Very comfortable and looked great!

What a gorgeous dress!
I really loved how comfortable this dress was. I ordered the size 4 and 2 and the size 2 fit my perfectly (I'm usually a size 4). It did seem to be missing something, so I added the belt after reading some of the reviews. I got a ton of compliments on the dress throughout the night!
