You can never go wrong with a cape
This. Dress. One of my favorite rentals of all time! I am OBSESSED with this cape. It was cut in the back which I was unsure about, but it worked well. There is enough fabric that you can't tell , and the cut kept me from feeling restricted. The rest of the dress was beautiful too. I'd size up just because the skirt does sit tight on the hips, and sizing up gives you a little extra room. It's all a very pretty navy, so it's the perfect canvas for fun accessories! At 5'9", the length was great, though I did have to tug the hem back down throughout the night. If you're considering this dress, rent it. You won't regret it! And to Adrianna Papell, PLEASE give us more dresses in this size range! I want to rent them all!

Attended a graduation at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC.
The Fit: This dress has a little bit of stretch to it, so while I was afraid a 12 might be too small for me, it fit really nicely! It runs a little bit large. Pros: This dress is incredibly comfortable. I wore it around NYC for 7 hours and never felt like I couldn't move naturally. Cons: It is a little bit short when you sit down, but I used the cape to cover my legs.

Fun night dancing!
It fit perfectly. The fabric is not a light material but it was a cool Spring night and I liked that my arms were covered by the cape. The cape was fun and it felt different than seeing the little black dress. It's not something I would buy so it was fun to rent it!

It is a lot of dress (Fabric)
It should be obvious from the photo that this is A LOT of fabric. I felt like I was swimming in fabric. I liked the idea of the dress, so that it why I rented it, but it is difficult to wear. Maybe a belt or something would have helped. The service from RTR was excellent.

I loved the way this dress felt while wearing it.
The material was very forgiving (quite stretchy). It was a heavier fabric than I had originally hoped for, but I never felt too hot or uncomfortable in it. I would definitely rent this dress again!

event was cocktail/date night attire, I needed to step it up and everyone was very complimentary
I have average/large breasts for this size and it fill extremely well in all the places. It was cold that night but I was comfortable coming and going from the event as well as comfortable at the venue.

I am 5'6 and 225 pounds and the 16W was perfect. It was so comfortable, the length was perfect and I like that it mostly covers your arms which I am self conscious of at times.

This dress was simple but a SHOWSTOPPER.
This dress was easy to accessorise, easy to wear, fit super well, but also was STUNNING. I got so many compliments. This is formal, but unique. I'm VERY pear shaped and usually have issues with fitted dresses fitting me in the hips but too small in the bust, and this was not the case for this dress.

Awesome fit for a new mom.
The dress fit perfectly- could've even fit a 6 if I had ordered it. But since I'm so used to juniors sizes I ordered up. I have a bit of a belly still that I can't seem to shake, and this dress helped hide it so well! Most dresses make me look like I'm still expecting and the fit plus the thick fabric really helped me feel and look my best!

This dress was so comfortable! My husband and I danced all night long. Everyone loved the dressed an
My size wasn’t available so I sized up and it worked out. We drove 2.5hrs and the dress didn’t wrinkle! The navy blue color was classic. I spiced it up with a floral, strappy heel and they flowed together beautifully. I loved this dress and highly recommend it!

My friend was getting married on NYE and I needed to look great
The dress was perfect. I wasn't sure that a sheath dress was going to look good on me because my lower stomach area is my biggest issue, luckily I took a chance. I felt AMAZING in this dress. Super comfy and very stretchy. I probably could have sized down but I think I would have felt self conscious about my stomach area. Dress was in perfect condition, no issues with the zipper or wrinkles or weird smells. This was my first rental and I'll DEFINITELY be renting again. I got compliments the entire night. I loved every second.

Best Rental Ever!!!!!!!
I rented this to wear on a girls weekend in Vegas. My daughter invited me to go along with her and her younger(20 something 30 something) friends. Had delivered to the RTR Vegas Store. Only size 10 was available and I was concerned as I have gained some extra weight recently. The 10 fit beautifully (thanks to Spanxs) This dress was everything I could want simple sleek sophisticated. The navy was a bit different then black. The cape is was made this dress. I wore red heels, rhinestone pins on the shoulder, cubic zerconica earrings and a statement ring. The younger women said the dress was hot and like it. I fit in with them and their mini dresses.. I know what I should wear and this is an examble

Beautiful drape, classy, has stretch!
The size I needed was unavailable so out of desperation, I sized up. It was loose on me but what saved it was the fact that there are snaps at the shoulders so you can attach it to a bra and not keep tugging at your neckline all night. the fabric is heavy and the cape makes you feel covered, so for my winter event I felt very comfortable. The style is classic, perfect for work. If styled wrong, it could come across as matronly or mother-of-the-bride so I added yellow accessories to make it feel a little more youthful. The dress has stretch so the size is forgiving. If I had been wearing the correct size, my problem area tummy still would have been covered. I am 5'2", 148 lbs and it hit me right at the knee. I wore a 14 but should have worn the 10 or 12.

Not for tall ladies
This dress is fun -- a unique look for a daytime wedding, especially. Unfortunately, it was way too short for me at 5'9". From the front it was wonderful, but the slit in the back went up past my rear! I even tried sizing up, but that didn't work. If you're 5'7" or taller, I'd say "skip it."

Didn't want to give this gem back! Gorgeous. Sophisticated, timeless, comfortable, flattering. Runs slightly small. Made very well. It was perfect for the holiday party I attended but could see it for any cocktail setting. Rent it! You won't be sorry.

I wanted a dress that had elegance and a bit of drama and style. This was it! Best dress ever!
This dress is amazing. It is very comfortable and the fabric is very forgiving. I wore it to a wedding and I got way too many compliments. Maybe more than the bride which was NOT my intention but nonetheless great time wearing it! I read the reviews and many said it ran big and it does. I ordered the 4 and the 6 and I normally wear an 8 these days. I ended in the 4 and it was the perfect fit! Rent this dress!! Thank me later. :)

Regal, stunning, and COMFORTABLE!
This is the second time I've rented this style of dress and I just love it. You will feel like royalty or the First Lady wearing it, trust me. Classy with just the right amount of drama and interest! This time, I officiated a wedding and this dress was absolutely perfect for the occasion. It was a tiny bit large on me as I usually wear a 12, but the design of the dress makes it look elegant regardless. I was stopped by just about everyone at the wedding and had a ton of people ask where I got the dress. It has a good bit of stretch to it, so comfort will not be an issue. I love that it offers arm coverage without looking dowdy. It also kept me warm in 40-50 degree weather!

Fit great. Runs a tad large. If you are in between sizes, I would size down. The thinker fabric and the cape made it a perfect dress for an October evening wedding.

I am a bit larger in the arms than most women my size. The cape of the dress fashionably covered up my arms. This dress was a perfect way to feel sophisticated yet stylish.

Magic Dress!
I rented this dress for a rehearsal dinner party. The party was at a place called the Magic Castle and what better way to go to the Magic Castle with a cape dress! I loved the navy color and how it fit me perfectly. I paired it with gold heels and accessories. The compliments were never ending!

The cape!!!!! This is one of the most comfortable dresses I have ever worn!
This dress is a knockout and unexpected. I wore it to perform in a cabaret and everyone loved it! IT's very dark navy, so black heels would probably work. I wore the 18 and had plenty to breathing room, which was the plan, but probably could have worn the smaller size too. So comfortable to sit, sing, and stand in. It's a definite re-rent!

Chic and appropriate for all ages!
Typically a 12 but I went with the 14 as it fit a little better around the middle. The dress has a lot of structure to it. I opted for a brooch to add a little sparkle instead of a necklace so that the focal point of the dress was still on the cape. I wore this to an elegant wedding and felt fashionable without being over the top.

Witchy? More like bewitching!
I usually wear a 16 in things that fit at the waist, and an 18 in things that fit at the hip. The relaxed fit on this one made a 16 perfect all over. I rented this for a friend's wedding, and I had a few misgivings. The wedding was a day before Halloween - would a dark dress with a cape look too costumey? Would I look like a witch? Hardly. I felt like a 1960s air hostess! But in the sexy-and-timeless way, not the costume way. The cape is so elegant, so unexpected, and such a conversation piece. I got a lot of compliments and questions about the dress. My husband ended the day by saying, "We have GOT to buy you more things with capes. You look phenomenal." Doesn't get much better than that! I can't wait for another special event so I can rent the ivory or red versions of this stunner.

This dress fit perfectly and I felt like a million bucks!! I usually wear a size 18, but I comfortably fit into a 16W. It hugged my curves in all the right places.
