So comfy!

I wore this dress to a gala. Im almost 5'6" and wore flats and the bottom of the dress was right at the floor. If you are shorter i totally recommend wearing heels. The fabric was soft and flowy. Wore it all night and didnt get hot once. My only complaint was the zipper was very difficult to get up. My husband had to do it for me and it was DEFINETELY a team effort.

Perfect Fit!

Im 5'8" 38D and this fit perfectly with a pair if 3" sandles. It wasnt so long that i stepped on it and would have fit okay with a slightly higher heel also. You definitely meed a second person to help you with the zipper and hook/eye closure though. No bra required which was also a plus because of the back of the dress. Beautiful and sophisticated. So happy with my rental.

Comfortable and elegant

The dress ran a little big but thats better than small. The cups sewn into the bust worked perfectly, and it was comfortable enough to dance the night away in!

I wore matching dresses with my best friend and they were beautiful!

I wore a size 20 (I'm on the right). I'm 5'7" and weigh 240 lbs. My best friend wore a size 10 (she's on the left). She is also 5'7" and weighs 169 lbs. The dress fit us both beautifully! We didn't want to return them!

Many compliments!

The top portion of the dress is very comfortable. I was able to wear a low cut nude bra, making sure to tuck the straps to not be visible. The dress has this amazing slit by the leg. I received many compliments on the dress. Only downside is that the zipper won't go up all the way. It appears to get stuck on the band of the dress.

Beautiful and flattering

This dress was beautiful and flattering on me post-partum, but I ended up wearing something a little edgier to the wedding we attended. This is a gorgeous option though.

Beautiful and Comfortable

I'm usually a size 10 or 12 but based on the reviews I ordered the 12 and 14, I'm glad I went with up because the dress runs a bit small on the waist. Size 12 fitted well but the 14 was more loose in the waist and around my arms and felt more comfortable so I went with that one instead.

Great dress for an up-scale wedding!

I got tons of compliments on this dress! It was gorgeous and comfortable. I'm only 5'3" but the length was manageable with heels. The back is very low cut so either no bra or you you have to get creative with a backless one. Loved the tapered waste and flowiness at the bottom, hid my post-baby belly while still being flattering.

Perfect Fit

I am 5'2" and this dress was the perfect length when paired with 3" heels and even worked well when I wore sandals. The only issue was the zipper was very stiff YET I spoke with RTR customer service and spoke to someone who suggested rubbing a candle on the teeth of the zipper which worked perfectly. I received compliments all night on how beautiful and well fitting my dress was.

Beautiful dress. Ran a bit large

Rented this for a wedding. Had a baby a few months ago so needed something that had a little stretch to it. You don't need a bra because it has built in cups. I chose to wear a strapless bra, but had to pull it extra low because of the see through mesh in the front. Overall, dress fit ok. I'm 6 feet tall and it was long enough. Would rent again.

Classy and comfortable!

I liked that I did not need to wear a bra with this dress. The fabric was flattering as well and I liked the slit in the front. The detail on the chest made it interesting while still being simple.

Nice dress, many compliments

This dress was great for the occasion. Glad I was able to wear the Long because the regular length was too short with heels. The slit was a fun surprise. I wasn't able to wear any type of bra but I felt well covered. It was tight right around the midsection as there is a no give to the ribbon so by the end of the night it had ridden up a little from sitting.

Amazing dress

This dress was so comfortable and a great fit! I am 8 months pregnant so I wanted something comfortable and this dress was perfect! The length was good on me at 5'7" with about a 3 in heel. I am also a triple D and didn't have any issues in the bust. I would normally wear a 10, but sized up since I'm pregnant and it worked perfectly. I got tons of compliments on the dress. Would definitely rent again!

I had many compliments. This dress is extremely comfortable. I wish it came in petite length.

It was so comfortable and nice to not wear a bra with it. I am only 5'1 and the regular length is too long but I made it work and I wasn't tripping. I would love it again in petite length. Definitely recommend this dress.

Perfect for a formal wedding & not having to spend lots of money on a dress you'd wear once

Fit was perfect & comfortable. Tighter around bra band area. Zipper was hard to zip, definitely need someone to zip for you. Overall, beautiful & happy with rental.

Great for expecting moms!

Beautiful dress and fit as expected. I am 5'4" and 135lbs with athletic build. I gave the dress a 4 star review because it wasn't my ideal style but was very beautiful. I ordered this dress because the mid section is loose fitting and help keep my little baby bump from popping out. I'd definitely recommend this dress for expecting moms!

Most compliments I've received

I normally don't take the time to write reviews but I absolutely loved this dress and received so many compliments I almost bought it. It was comfortable and I hate showing my arms but this dress was totally worth it. I did rent a 16 and 18 and the 16 wouldn't even zip but the 18 fit perfect and wasn't at all tight

Beautiful but can't wear a bra

When I rented this as my backup dress I didn't realize it was backless. I couldn't wear a bra with it (and I need one) so this was a miss for me. The lace detail is really nice and sexy tho!

Felt like a dream!

I rented this dress for a black tie fundraiser and I wish I could wear it every day. I rented my usual size and then one larger but wore my expected size. The zipper was very difficult to get up the last inch, over the folded fabric of the waistband. It took two of us and once it was zipped it was quite snug around my rib cage but I was comfortable all night. I'm small busted and the built in cups were very comfortable and I felt no need for any other bra. The high neck and long skirt felt sophisticated but the slit (mid thigh height on me) was the perfect amount of skin. You must rent this!

Amazing!

I found out on a Monday that I needed a gown by Saturday. A trip to the mall Tuesday gave me 0 options so Tuesday night I ordered from RTR and by Thursday I had a beautiful and well fitting dress on my doorstep. Amazing!

Great for maternity!

The length was perfect for my 2 inch heels, I'm 5' 4" and wore a 10P. I didn't expect the back to be as low as it was the my bra was showing in the back. I ended up needing to pin it because I was determined to wear a bra. It could probably be work without one, that's the only reason for giving it a 4/5 star. Overall, so many compliments, flowy and comfortable for my growing bump!

The dress was very small in the bust and not true to size.

If you have bigger boobs, this dress isn't for you. The length and fabric was awesome.

Beautiful dress ! Felt very comfortable for my growing belly .

Loved this dress . I'm always iffy on my size and I am also 18 weeks pregnant . I ordered the 10R at first but then added the 8R just Incase . I'm glad I did because the 10 was too big and I felt the 8 fit well but I wish it was tighter for my chest. You can't really wear a bra with this dress so I just wish it was tighter to add some lift. Overall very pretty and I can't wait for next event to rent another dress .

Runs small

Foiled by RTR again. Normally wear an 8, got a 6 based on reviews. Couldn't even zip it. Second time I've tried this service and second time everything I've gotten is too small and this is after so much time looking and reading reviews.

Dress was comfortable and looked great.

Needed a very low back bra. Also lace is completely see through so you have to be comfortable with cleavage showing up close.

Gorgeous dress, slightly small

This was my backup dress but I would have worn it had it for because it was so gorgeous. Tight fit around where the empire waist hits which made it difficult to zip all the way. I was worried about the low cut style as I have a large chest but it was really flattering.

Right under my bust it would not fit. I got it as a free back up so it was ok but not a dress I would ever wear. Cheaply made

Beautiful dress

Beautiful, comfortable dress to be sure. However I am 5 months pregnant and while this is not a specific maternity dress, I thought it would work but it didn't. I am normally a size 6/8 and went up to a size 10 with no luck. I would have kept going up a size if they had been available though!

Beautiful but Common

Fit was great, I just didn't find anything stunning about this gown- it reminded me of a prom dress. Which, it is for sale (clearance) at Macy's right now for Prom. Fit my large chest and tight on the waist. Hip material falls oddly giving you a weird extended shape. Light material & comfortable
