The dress was absolutely stunning. It's definitely a head turner for any formal event.

The dress fit true to size and the fabric is somewhat stretchy. Very comfortable and cool material.

Cape-tastic!

I LOVED this dress, it made me so sad to return it. The fabric is comfortable and it fit like a glove. The cape sleeves are so fun and eye catching I got compliments all night!

I felt very glamorous and sophisticated in this dress. I got a ton of compliments.

I wore this to a fundraiser party in the winter and the material is substantial to wear in the winter.

Loved that I could rent this dress because I don't know when I would wear it again

I wore the larger size just because it fit my curves better. I got so many compliments. I wore it to a school film award show. T

Fabulous!

Beautiful, unique, high quality, comfortable dress! I felt fabulous in this dress! I definitely got a little hot at times, so it may not be perfect for a summer event.

How easy all this was! My dress was a total hit at this great gatsby theme wedding!

Everything was quick and simple. Stress free. What helped the most was the reviews on true to size. Will use you guys again!

Obsessed with this dress!

I absolutely love this dress. The cape is everything! The fabric has a bit a stretch to it so it is very comfortable. However, with that, it does tend to highlight any bumps so invest in some spanx, if necessary.

I felt confident and beautiful in this dress.

Design and cape was very flattering to my figure flaws. I got so many compliments in this dress. Only complaint was that it was shorter than I thought.

This was my first time using RTR and I was very pleased.

The fit was great. Only con was that it was a little big under the arm which showed side bra a little but the cape helped to cover it. I would definitely rent this dress again and all night I kept thinking I need to find a way to buy this dress! Lol I recorded so many compliments and had a great night at the wedding because I felt so beautiful and most importantly comfortable!

The perfect dress for New Years Eve! Didn't need a jacket which was great considering I live in DC

My bra strap made a couple of appearances because the shoulder was a little Wider than expected.

This dress is amazing! Stands out and looks great!

I wore this dress for a rehearsal dinner and after party! I got so many compliments on it and it was so comfortable! This dress is a show stopper! I can see myself renting it again in the future for other events! The cape hid my imperfections and makes a great statement, win-win!

such a fun dress!

This dress was such a blast to wear. It fit perfectly, form-fitting but not too tight, plenty of room for a DDD chest. The red is amazing, and the cape was an excellent feature to have on the dance floor. Loved this dress!!

Moulin Rouge

I wore this to a Valentine's screening of Moulin Rouge and it was perfect! I was channeling Satine aka the Sparkling Diamond and I felt great. Ladies were complementing my look left and right and I felt fab. The fabric on this dress gives quite a bit and id say you are safe ordering down a size. Altogether a perfect outfit to make an elegant dashing statement.

The CAPE is divine and the color!

This dress is one of my all time favorites. The color is a true vibrant red, the lighting made it look a little pink. The dress is stretchy and I did wear spanx, but I could have gone without. A regular bra was also fine with this dress. I wore this to the Metropolitan Opera on a Saturday night and felt gorgeous. Do not hesitate to rent this dress. I may get it again for another occasion! Note - I am 5'3 and the dress hit me just above the knee. 38DDD - plenty of room for the girls. I think this dress looks best on an hourglass as the shape of the dress comes from your body.

Ran a little big on me. But still made a statement. I was the talk of the room.

"This is so Olivia Pope!" The best compliment I could have received.

The fabric is thick and heavy, and has stretch to it, but it's not clingy. I ordered a size or two larger than I would normally wear in order to avoid clingy-ness, and didn't have to worry about unsightly pictures all night. I wore spanx underneath to smooth everything out. Be warned, the cape is VERY LARGE, and very heavy, but it's super chic. Could certainly make for a toasty evening on the dance floor.

The number of compliments I received on the dress...

The dress was a hit. I wore it to a banquet and from the time I arrived, I received nothing but compliments. I am a 16, so the W was a bit spacey around the neck, other than that it was a great fit. And wonderful for a last minute dress bind.

Celebrated my fifty birthday! Oh what a hit a definite head turner

Was celebrating my fifty but didn't have the perfect dress yet. My sister saw this on Rtr and told me to check it out. I liked it instantly but wasn't sure that Red was for me, Oh was I Wrong!! I absolutely loved the dress and color. I usually were a 18 but it wasn't available so I went with the 20. It was a little big but very comfortable. I got so many compliments all evening long. What a gorgeous dress!

The cape was a hit!!!! Stunner!

I wore this dress in Atlantic City for the Lady Gaga & Tony Bennett concert. Incredibly comfortable! Glamorous! I had a little room left in the chest which never happens and I am a 40H. This dress might not work for smaller chested women. Hides the belly well as I forgot my Spanx at home and was still comfortable. I fit well into the 18 size but wore the 20 for more belly room. I felt like a celebrity all night!

Show stopper in the city.

Loved this dress. I am so happy with this first rental. I wore this for my husbands company Christmas Party in San Francisco. I got so many compliments, it was a huge hit! It was so comfortable, stretchy and fashionable. Get this dress! As an apple shape, both the 20 and 22 fit, but I felt the 22 looked better around my tummy. The shoulders were a little bit big for me, but it was totally fine. Loved this dress so hard! Walked around Union square and took pictures, such a romantic Christmas in the city.

The cape was the coolest thing that totally made the dress!

When I first took it out of the box I was disappointed bc it looked pretty shapeless but as soon as I put it on I was thrilled, it fit like a glove! It does cling a little so a good pair of spanx is a good idea if you want to smooth everything out. I got told all night that I had the best dress at the party! It's also worth noting I wore it on NYE in Ohio with no coat, and didn't freeze. It's a little chilly from point A to B but it does keep you fairly warm!

I wore the 16w. I didn't even try on the 14 because the 16 was perfect. I have never received so many compliments on anything as I did that night, from men and women! Very comfortable.

I felt like a celebrity all day and all night - it made my birthday!!

I wore this dress to work with black flats and then to a mixer with black heels in the evening. I ordered an 18W but ended up wearing the 16W and was totally comfortable. I was worried about it being too warm since many of the other reviews said it was thick material but the dress did not seem overly heavy to me. It was my birthday and I couldn't have felt more glamorous! I received so many compliments on the dress, I am so sad to be returning it, wish I could keep this forever! I will DEFINITELY be renting this again!

Show stopper!

This dress was amazing for a chilly night time wedding in May in NY. The fabric is very forgiving and so comfortable! The cape skimmed my arms to slim them and not to mention, how dramatic! I had multiple people stop me to compliment the dress during the event. This dress hugged my curves and I would rent it again! (It is also available in another color- score!)

Lady In Red

My first experience with RTR and not my last! I searched high and low for a dress to wear for a Wedding I attended. I was running out of options and running out of time. Well, I just so happened to stumble across the site 2 days before my Event and took a chance! I ordered the dress Wednesday morning and had it Thursday afternoon. It fit perfectly and was incredibly comfortable. I felt super sexy and got compliments all night long!

Beautiful, standout dress

The 16 in this fit great, but had a terrible smell when I received it. Luckily the size up was still fine - it fit a little longer but it worked out (and luckily didn't have the same smell). It didn't feel too clingy and was such a standout dress.

Fierce and fun

Loved this dress! Had an event at Carnegie Hall and it seemed like the right place to wear a cape. I got stopped by 4 people on the way in, telling me how fab it was. Comfortable and unique, I would definitely recommend this.
