Wore this dress to a fall wedding & received many, MANY compliments!!
This dress is the perfect "go to" cocktail dress. It's great for anything from a more conservative event to a sexy party dress!

My favorite dress of the moment. This is such an easy wear - hides any arm imperfections, cute yet classy. Definitely good with a longer necklace.

I though it would be more A-line than it was. I am very small up top but bigger in the hips and neither of the 2 sizes fit me the way I wanted to so I didn't end up wearing the dress. It's gorgeous but just not right for my body type. Maybe if I went up 2 sizes? Not sure...

Fabulous dress, very flattering and true to size. I was complimented all night long. Note that it is quite short -- I wore it with bright navy tights and heels to a cold-weather California wedding in October. I wish I owned it -- it's really quite adorable.

I loved this dress!! I wore it to a friend's birthday party, and I have to say, it was absolutely fabulous. It gave me a great shape and showed off my curves, despite not being a 'tight' dress-- something I loved about it! Sadly I looked to try to buy it, but couldn't find it anywhere in my size. But that goes to show how much I loved it!

Such a great dress - very versatile! Love it so much, have already rented it twice! Can be worn with flats or heels, and even though it isn't form-fitting, it still gives you a great shape!

Super comfy and conservative while being modern. I wore it to an business awards dinner and it worked well. The length was a little iffy for a conservative event, but I wore my back up size, which was bigger. The only issue I had is that the bottom was noticeably frayed.

Perfect dress for a young professional conference. This dress laid comfortably on my petite frame. I was even featured on a fashion blog wearing the dress the following morning.Felt very ladylike in this lace number.

If you are a curvy woman, the dress does not look as loose as it does in the picture. HOWEVER! It was a spectacular hit at the dinner party I attended and it received great reviews. I definitely recommend this dress!

Loved this dress. The lace details looked much more subtle than the photo, but still lovely. The arm holes were really tight, which prohibited me from wearing this dress for the evening, but it really is a gorgeous dress.

The dress and accessories were shipped in great condition! I reserved it several weeks in advance and it was so nice to not have to worry about what I was going to wear! I got a ton of compliments on the dress.
Pretty dress! I was worried it wouldn't fit well since shift type dresses usually don't look so great on me but it was so pretty and in perfect condition! It was true to size and even the length was about the same on me as in the picture. I loved it!!

Loved this dress! Very flattering (I wore size 8). The sleeves definitely hit right above the elbow in me and the dress hit around mid thigh. Is it blue? Is it black? Still not sure. My fiance (who also love it) and I decided it was navy with a black lace overlay, so it looked fine with black shoes.

I wore this dress for my best friend's Bridal Shower and received a ton of compliments. On Monday morning I referred about 10 of my friends that saw the dress to RTR! ***Dress is second from the right
Great dress, very comfortable and not as short as I thought it would be (which was a good thing). Classic dress, great for lots of occasions. Loved the drop neck in the back!

classic dress
I wore this dress to thanksgiving with my family. It's such a classic style, and it looked great on. The sleeves were a little shorter than pictured, but they fit fine. I was mostly worried about them being tight. The dress was also a little shorter then I thought it would be, had to extra careful getting in and out of the car. I would definitely rent again, and maybe even purchase if RTR decides to sell!

Perfect for a work event
I rented this for a Gala I attended with my company. I'm on the small size (only 5'0") but it was the perfect length. It was a little loose in the top, but appropriate for the event. Would love to have it permanently in my closet!

Love when people tell me you look so skinny!
I rented the dress for Thanksgiving with my boyfriends family - They tend to dress up a little more so I thought it was perfect - I belted it to make it look a little more fitting but loved it in general!

Rented this for myriad holiday work parties, got loads of compliments. Classy, sexy, but not too sexy. Much more fitted than it appears on the model, but not tight, runs a little short (I am 5'8").

Was perfect for ringing in the new year!
I wore this dress out to a bar for New Years Eve and it was perfect! You can dress it up or down and it is very comfortable. I thought the length was a great fit even if some people seem to think it's a bit short - it's the look. Wish I owned it because I would wear it all the time - Great LBD!

Classy and Fun
This dress is very beautiful and looks very classy. I dressed it up with heels and jewelry to wear to a wedding. It is a great quality dress and I got a lot of compliments! Just a warning- it is pretty tight on the hips so if you are more of a "pear shape" then it will have a different look then the photo - but still cute

Classic style but a bit short
Overall, I really liked this dress; however, being barely 5'5" tall the dress was so short that the control top line on my panty hose showed when I sat down! It was perfect for a special date night.

I wore this dress for a Holiday Party. It was a bit short, but I wore it with sheer black hose and it was perfectly appropriate. I received quite a few complements throughout the evening.

absolutely adore this dress
I loved this dress. Got so many compliments. Its classy yet edgy at the same time. Short in length but the long lace sleeves and boatneck top make it more respectable. I'm usually a 4 and it fit perfectly. I would definitely rent it again or even consider buying it.

I felt incredible and was able to have a fabulous time knowing that I looked great!
This dress was perfect for my uncle's October wedding. Classic, but still young. VERY comfortable. I was worried it would be a little boxy, but it worked out great!

Perfect for a wedding guest
I wore this to a winter wedding in California - it was a great choice. Conservative on the top but the short length made it young and modern. Worn with platform pumps = classy & sassy!

The fact that I showed up and someone else told me they had rented the same dress for the actual wedding and was glad we didn't wear it on the same day because I looked so great...pretty neat.
This dress is truly a great rental. It IS blue with black lace over top of it so don't expect black on black. It fits true to size and because of the overlay it hides most flaws. I'm a bit taller and was originally concerned with length but I think it was JUST long enough. I wore it for my sister's rehearsal dinner and received multiple compliments.

The dress was amazing---was flattering without being too tight. The only downside is that the dress was a bit shorter than I was expecting.

A little short but gorgeous
I rented this dress for my cousin-in-law's wedding and absolutely loved it. I got many compliments on it and referred quite a few people to RTR in the process! My only complaint was that it was a little short. Not inappropriate when standing, but I did tug it down a bit when I sat and there was absolutely not way I could bend over in it. At one point, I dropped my escort card and had to ask my bf to pick it up because there was no way I could do it w/out flashing someone!
