Classy and comfortable

Wore this to date night. My husband liked the dress ;) It is comfortable to wear. I did wear a corset underneath for a curvier boost. I wear size 14 and this dress runs true to size. I wear size 38DDD bra and I was able to breathe in it. The length was perfect. The only con I can say about the dress is that the arms were a little tight for me. Overall, the dress is pretty and comfortable. I would definitely rent it again.

The service is always extraordinary!!

The fit was much larger than usual. I am holding the back of the dress in this photo. It was not bad;however, I wish it was more form fitting. I will definitely continue to rent in the future!

Felt like a million bucks!

This dress was perfection! I wore it for a girls reunion/mom's night out, and I felt so comfortable and chic. The lace is so pretty and soft, the fit is easy but looks super flattering. All I needed were some control top Spanx brand tights and I was good to go. When I rented this, the tags were still on, so I was the first to wear! Stellar experience once again from RTR. Got lots of compliments! Wish I could own it. I would definitely rent this again. Great value for a $30 rental!

Back up dress

I used my free birthday month dress as a back up for my sisters wedding. The dress was pretty but it was too snug in the arms and it felt more like a mother of the bride dress. It went past my knees and I felt like it did show some love handles if you are wearing without shapewear. It's overall a pretty dress but not what I would have chosen for a wedding, honestly it's a perfect funeral dress!

Gorgeous and Comfortable

Loved this dress! It was incredibly comfortable and fit me just right! I was a bit worried at first but it was perfect for our event. I wore it with strappy flats and it fit the occasion well. It certainly could be dressed up more with nylons and heels, but for our dinner and concert (in 100+ weather) no nylons and flats were the key. This was my first experience with RTR and I will be back!

So basic yet lovely!

I wish I could buy this dress! I loved it and my husband did too! Very form fitting but not uncomfortably so. Perfect length and I could wear a black bra with it - couldn't see the straps! Love this dress!!

So comfortable and classy

This dress was amazing! Originally I thought the dress was to big. I slept on it and decided to keep it because it was beautiful. I got so many compliments wearing this dress! It was classy and so comfortable. The dress also is a little bit heavier material which makes it perfect for the hotter months.

Never felt so confident!!

Get this dress!! It's form fitting but hugs in all the right places and still forgiving in the tummy. It's a little tighter in the arms (difficult to lift arms) but I made do without any issue. I wore with a strapless bra but probably not necessary and a high waisted spanx like brief. Never felt more confident - lived my best life at a friend's wedding and got so many compliments!!

Gorgeous and classy

I loved this dress, especially the delicate lace scalloped neckline. The cut is perfect for a girl with curves, but runs just slightly large, I am between 14/16 and could grab extra fabric on the 14, I think I could've fit into a 12. Absolutely gorgeous dress, but it was my backup and I went with my first choice. Looking forward to another function where I can wear this beauty. You won't be disappointed with this classy rental.

Gala dress

I wore this dress to a gala to support a friend's choir group. I ordered a 16 and it fit but the 18 was more comfortable for moving around so I went with the 18. I am typically between a 16-18 regularly so this was acceptable to me. Very cute dress and I felt great and confident wearing it!

Amazing!

This dress was the one I chose after my original one was too small. It turned out to be one hundred times better than the original. I wish it had a bit of stretch, but I loved it. It fit in all the right places.

Very pretty and elegant

I rented this as a back up and ended up wearing my first choice, but I would rent this again! It is very pretty and my only complaint would be that the lace lacks stretch, making my arms feel a little restricted. I could have gone a size up, but it would have been too loose otherwise. It was still very pretty and appropriate for a fancy party or an afternoon wedding.

Comfort and style

This dress is very comfortable. I ended up wearing the 18 just for the length but the 16 fit very well. I am 5'10 and wanted the dress to be near knee length. Only issue I had with the dress is the slit in the back goes very far up however, I was able to safety pin it together.

Dress was super comfortable! I normally wear a size 18 but it was out of stock. I went with the 20 and it was a little big but it was comfy! I'll definitely order again.

It's truly beautiful

I was disappointed with how it fit me. I'm between regular and plus sizes - which is a challenge. The 14W was just too big. It made me look frumpy, but unfortunately, that's the smallest size this dress came in. It hit me longer on the knees because of that, too. It fit fine through the sleeves and chest, but was baggy through the waist and hips (which isn't something I typically have a problem with.) If you have fuller hips, thighs and butt, don't be afraid to order this dress. It's got room for you!

It runs large.

It was cute, but I normally wear a 16 and the 14 was so big that I had to pin it so it fit better.

Beautiful dress but too big to wear.

I ordered a size 14 (what I normally wear) but it was too big. A 12 would've been perfect. It's a great dress though and would be perfect for a night out or formal event.

STYLIST REVIEW!

Dress fits true to size. I would recommend going up a size for a backup. Dress fabric has NO stretch and is lined as well. Can be worn with standard undergarments. Dress is very nice for a formal event.

This dress was super comfortable looked great & I got so many compliments!

It was fitted through the bodice but not to fitted that I felt uncomfortable. If I was purchasing it I'd probably would have gotten it hemmed so it was a smidge shorter but overall I loved this dress!

Pretty dress with modest silhouette

I'll be honest this dress wasn't my first choice. They sent it to me after my first one didn't fit. I have been losing weight so I am currently between a 16 and 14. This dress was only available in a 14 so I was nervous it would be too tight. It was actually very loose on me except for my bust which (despite what my RTR profile says) is a 38H. I was able to zip the dress up and move around comfortably though. I would have liked the dress to be more form fitting and hug my curves but it didn't. Maybe if I'd gone another size down it would have. I would not rent this dress again but I would recommend it for a friend who was looking for a nice comfortable dress with a pretty silhouette.

This was a great dress!

I'm much smaller on top than on the bottom so the top was a little loose, but I would say it was true to size. I rented this dress for a 4 pm black tie optional outdoor wedding. The dress was very comfortable, and I was complimented all evening long.

I didn't wear the dress

Did not like the length as I am shorter and fell at the wrong spot. Also - because it is off the shoulder would recommend getting a different kind of bra. I ended up not wearing this

Loved the dress, second renting.

I'm a 36 H, 40 in waist. The 14 fit my chest with room in the waist to feel comfortable. I would have liked it to come in the waist a bit more but I'm used to that when I have to fit my chest.

It was fun!

I love that this dress has full short sleeves, not cap sleeves, and has a flattering curve for a shapely body. Its not tight and has some room to breathe. I also enjoy the neckline and dress length.
