It was perfect!
I wore this dress while performing on stage singing Don't rain on my Parade by Barbra Streisand. This just couldn't have been more perfect for this occasion. I received multiple compliments. It was super comfortable to wear and very fun to be in. Wish I could've kept it. Are usually were 16 L. But this dress only came in women's sizes. Which meant it was a little roomier especially in the midsection. I was able to wear the back up size 14 with plenty of room to spare. I could've fit into a size smaller even.

Instantly Chic!
This dress is fabulous! Lots of compliments all evening and I felt great in it too. The cape was so fun on the dance floor. The fit was perfect on the size I ordered (14W) but there is a slit in the back that came up a little higher than I was comfortable with so I wore the 16W backup to have better coverage over my backside. Loved this dress and was a great first rental experience--even had other guests ask me where I got it because they want an outfit with a cape!

Fit was a bit big in the back for me, but shape around hips and bust was perfect.

So many compliments!!
I felt amazing in this dress!! Everyone that saw me at the wedding could not stop complimenting me. The dress really stood out among everyone else wearing long gowns. I definitely felt confident. Dress runs true to size. I ordered a size bigger than what I wear because I did not want it to be tight. Get this dress if you want everyone to be wowed!!

I rented this dress for a Dinner Dance/Auction. This dress was fun and exciting. Loved it!
To my surprise, this dress fit better than it looked like it would on the website. It looked like there was not a lot of give in the dress, but it is made of a slightly stretchy material and looked GREAT on me. The best part of the dress was the cape. It is a split cape, which I liked, I think if it had been a full cape it would have pulled too much. I got so many compliments on this dress. This was my first time renting from RTR and I will definitely do this again! It is a much better option than going out and buying a dress for every event that my husband and I attend. Overall, very pleased with this dress and my first experience renting!

The fit was amazing, the dress is easy to wear, and the look is beautiful. If you're tall, it runs a little short....no worries though, it showed off my Shapley legs!

Mom Prom was an awesome event that lead to unforgettable memories!
I wore this dress to the "Mom Prom" and it was perfect! The dress was very comfortable and allowed me to dance the night away with my son. The length was great and the cape added a unique feature that was truly beautiful.

Red Hot Dress!
This was such a fun dress to wear to a wedding. I received several compliments throughout the evening. The dress runs a little big. I should have worn a smaller size.

One of the kind majestic dress!
The fit ran a bit large, but it was okay because you couldn't really tell.This dress is BEAUTIFUL and very high drama! The length is not too short, it hit me at about an inch or so above the knee. I wore it to a date party and it was better than I could have hoped it would look on me. The color is vibrant, it is so well constructed, and people were complimenting me left and right! Huge confidence boost! Definitely consider renting this dress y'all!

Come fly with me!
I rented this dress for a 1960s/jet age-themed work gala. I paired it with a small beehive updo and vintage-inspired earrings, also from RTR. Perfection! My look was a great combination of modern and classic, and I got lots of compliments all night long. One woman told me she had searched in vain for a cape dress for herself, and this was just the thing. I normally wear a 16 dress size, although my wide hips push me into an 18 on occasion, and this dress was ever-so-slightly larger than a typical 16. It was a great fit, though, and never felt too tight or unflattering. (I do have a pot belly, which shows in this photo only because I didn't have any support garments on yet!) The fabric felt substantial and high-quality, but not too heavy. Most of the people I talked to assumed it was very expensive. They were so shocked when I revealed that I had rented it for under $50! Wearing this dress made me feel glamorous and timeless and very put together. I'm certain I would try to buy it for keeps, if only I had more occasions in life that warranted a cape dress.

Lots of fun!
I wish it came in a smaller size, but the 14 did run true to size for me. It was for a winery club party in December, and the fabric was the perfect weight - not too hot or too cold, and the cape kept me plenty warm. Definitely a statement dress! The cape was a big hit!

The dress was fun and unique. The red is a cherry red and gorgeous! Lining is so soft.
This is a very classy dress. I wore it with a belt around the waist, but it looks good as a sheath as well. My husband loved it.

Holiday Party
The dress is beautiful. This dress was my back for another dress. It was a bit big but I felt comfy all night. The cape adds a certain class to the overall dress. I wore a pearl necklace with this dress and nude pumps.

No on else had a cape! :)
Now, I'm not tiny, so that's why I went for the 14, but it definitely runs in the area closer to 16. I got the 16 as a backup and I was SWIMMING in it. That said, it was very comfortable for the gay prom I went to (with my husband, who wore a red and black tux ... have to find the pics!), and the cape is just beyond fabulous. It was still a great pick because the style is very chic. It is baggy up top, though.

I did wear the cape like a shawl, wrapped over elbows. Worn down, I felt like Little Red Riding Hood. The material is high quality. Beautiful shade of red. Received compliments all night.

So many compliments!!!!
I love love LOVED this dress! I work at a winery in Napa and this was for our formal Christmas party. This dress is so unique and I felt great in it! Very stretchy and forgiving with my curves. Felt elegant and sophisticated. Be prepared for lots of compliments. People were even taking about it 2 days later when they saw me at work. Perfect for a holiday party. Can't wait to rent the black one in the future as well. You will love this dress!

Even better in person!
I ordered my two sizes not being familiar with the brand. As I'm in process of losing weight I never know what will fit me and was terrified I'd ordered too small. Quite the opposite. At 5'5" and a 47% body fat composition with an hourglass figure, the 16 was still a bit too big. My trainer won't let me weigh myself. Lol. Received compliments all night long from both men and women, felt like a million bucks. Quick tip: in the restroom, wear the cape as a scarf. Lol

I absolutely loved this dress. It made me feel just as wonderful as it looked. I received so many compliments at the part and they continued throughout the weekend. I received my order just in time. Although, I must say, it takes bold accessories to pull it all together. Everyone is looking to see what my next dress will look like for the next event. I am already on the website searching. Thanks for helping me to make the night unforgettable.

There is always room for a girl to have a cape moment.
This designer understands how to cut a dress for a curvy woman. This dress was a size 20W. I could have worn the 18W but it was a little snug. The 20W was perfect. It was short and very sassy. I love the cape. It made me feel dressed up and classic. The red was a perfect darker cranberry red not a harsh red. It was perfect for my complexion. It has some stretch to it so it's very comfortable.

Slaying Christmas!
This dress was so comfortable to wear to our Yacht Club Christmas party. The dress has a bit of stretch. I also think I could have gone with the 14W, but it was not available. I got complements all night long. The cape was very dramatic, but not over the top. So much fun. Was sad to have to return.

Good lord, I could hardly walk anywhere at the company holiday party without being stopped by multiple people, many of whom I did not know, complimenting me on this dress. If you're not averse to being the center of attention, I suggest you rent this gorgeous dress.

I LOVED this dress, and so did everyone else!! I got LOTS of compliments on it and hundreds of likes on Facebook lol. I wore a 14W and probably could have gotten away with a 12W. I really don't have anything negative to say about the dress! This was my first rental and I can't wait for my next one!! #BridalShower #RedDress #Fabulous

The cape is everything! Would love to buy it.
OMG! I would like to keep this dress FOREVER! I literally turned heads everywhere as soon as we arrived to the venue. Friends said it looked like a dress Michelle Obama or Olivia Pope would wear. I felt so fabulous in it. It was very comfortable and covered all the things you'd like covered. I wish I would have went down a size as it was a little big. The red is beautiful. This dress will be great for all events from corporate to weddings. The cape is an instant show stopper.

Great dress.
I got a lot of compliments on this dress at an engagement cocktail party in downtown Chicago, in late October. Very comfortable dress with enough coverage in the cape to keep warm. You probably couldn't wear a coat very comfortably with this dress. The 18 fit, but I wanted just a touch more room and went with the 20.

The only con was the dress was just a tad too big.
