Beautiful dress and comfortable to wear. I received many compliments.
The dress would be hard to zip alone- definitely need assistance. The lace didn't get caught on as much as I thought it would, which was a welcome surprise. I wanted to wear the 16 I ordered however it had a small tear in it upon arrival. Luckily I had a backup size. It was a little big but fine.

It was a beautiful dress, the lining was longer than the lace and I couldn't wear it. :-(
Must wear either bra cups, strapless or no bra. Nude won't work.

Perfect dress!
I rented this dress for a rehearsal dinner and it was absolutely prefect! In the photo in the website it looks like the lace and the dress are slightly different shades but they are actually the same in person. I felt that the dress was true to size if not a little on the large size. I am really an in-between sizes shape and so I got both a 14 and a 16 and found that the 14 was just perfect.

This was a nice dress and it made me look great for the event
It was a great fit. However be careful, the lace of the dress got caught one on my clutch purse once during the evening.

Beautiful but worn dress
Heavy fabric, got hot easily. The lace looked very tired - obvious that it had been more one too many times. The 14W is definitely meant for someone with wide hips, I only rented since a 14R was available - not a good idea, probably could have worn the 12R and would have been fine.

Pretty, but didn't wear it.
This dress seemed REALLY big to me. I wear a 16/18, and the 16W was way too big everywhere, so I didn't wear it.

Comfortable but lovely
I wore this to a formal event, dressing it up a bit with gold accessories and some jewelry. You could easily dress it up or down to fit your event. The fit was a little straight up and down for me - didn't fit an hourglass shape. I added a belt to take up the slack a bit and while I felt like there was a bunch of extra fabric, I don't think it was noticeable. Another plus is the thick fabric backing the lace - very forgiving and the contrasting color to the lace added some extra interest. I typically wear a 12/14 on top, a 14/16 on bottom, or a 14/16 in dresses. This dress definitely had some extra room but other than the waist being large, nothing else felt awkwardly sized and nothing gapped.

Great navy dress for a summer wedding!
This was a last minute replacement dress that was sent to me for an bridesmaid dress. It was a really nice dress, and I got a lot of compliments on it. It was well lined and I could get away with not wearing a bra because of that and the lace is really thick. I got an 18W and the 20W, and both fit with no problem. I ended up wearing the 20W because it had more room in the tummy, and I wanted to feel comfortable. It was a little big in the bust, though. A strapless bra probably would have taken up the room but I didn't have one. The only reason I didn't end up giving it 5 stars is it had a large rip, about 4-5 inches long, in top layer on the side seam. Luckily I was able to stitch it up myself.

Compliments galore!!!!
I absolutely loved this dress! It was perfect for the formal wedding I attended. The fit was great to, flattering to my shape. I'm 5'5" so the dress hit me right above the knee. This was my first experience with RTR and I was very pleased with it.

The dress, of course!
I rented this dress for a wedding when I was about 7 months pregnant. The lace detail was absolutely beautiful and the color is very nice as well. It's a great length and forms to the body nicely. My only complaint is that the dress is a little heavy, but it didn't bother me much. I was very happy with the rental.

Amazing - perfect fit. I got so many complaints!
Be careful wearing a chain. I got my bag stuck in the dress a few times and almost had to be cut out of it. Everything else was perfect. It's much more blue in person than in photos.

Beautiful AND Comfortable
I was very happy with this rental and received compliments all night. This dress is true to size and my size up dress was not needed. After having 2 kids, my stomach is my problem area, but I felt comfortable and confident in this dress and was able to move, dance and eat! The back on this dress is beautiful, but you will need a strapless bra. The cut and style of this dress is very flattering.

This dress was perfect for my event and I received a lot of compliments. I really loved this dress!
I originally ordered my normal size of 18W but it was so narrow that I could not get it on all. The 20W fit but was tight through the hips. The 22W fit great through the hips but I had to pin the straps on the under-layer to make it a bit tighter at the top. I was told this designer tends to be a little narrow in the hips.

Fabulous fabric but didn't wear it
I really wanted to love this dress. Unfortunately, it's hard for a curvy girl to rock a sheath dress. It fit great though the hips and bust but hung on my frame and added 20 pounds. If I could've taken it in at the waist I would've loved it though. Gorgeous navy color and luxurious lace overlay.

Beautiful dress but not right for my shape!
This was a back up dress I had sent to me because the first dress I ordered was too big. The deep navy color of this dress is gorgeous, and the material is beautiful. I really loved the dress by itself, but it did nothing for my shape. I am busty and have an hour glass shape, but this dress doesn't accentuate any of your curves. It was also a little large on me, so that could have been a problem as well. Wasn't for me, but if you aren't super curvy this dress is probably a good choice!

I rented this for my Mom, who has a petite build. We rented it in a 14 and 16, but being 5'2", the dress was too long and she could not wear either. It was a beautiful dress and would have worked well if she had a longer torso.

Classic elegance!
This was a dress that RTR overnighted to me because I was sent the wrong size in my original order of another dress and my backup was too small. Loved the heavy lace on this dress! I would say it runs rather small (which I'm finding out with these designers on RTR). I'm usually a 14W. I went up to the 18W because the 16W was snug in the hips. Luckily, I had a belt that went went my shoes and the clutch a rented, that helped cinch in the waist a little. Remember to check the size charts! All of the brands vary drastically with their sizing, unfortunately.

Renting this next week - can you comment on the bra situation? Will I need strapless or will a navy blue bra work fine? Thank you!

wearing this great dress that was super comfortable!
This was the back up dress when the Carmen Marc Valvo dress didn't fit. It was a very comfortable dress to wear and I got a lot of compliments on it, however it was a little wide at the bust line (as I am a 36B), and a little wide in the waist, but not enough to look like a true sack on me. A belt might have helped, but I didn't want to detract from the prettiness of the dress. I would definitely order this dress if they had it in a regular 14, but for being a last minute selection when the first dress didn't fit I was very happy with it. So close to being a 4 star dress!

Very thick and heavy fabric.
The lace is really pretty on this dress, but the fabric is thick and heavy. I was hoping to wear this to an outdoor event. Unfortunately, it was way too warm outside to wear this dress - I would have melted! I decided not to wear this dress.

disappointed
I was not able to wear it because the size which fit had a 6 inch opening in the leg seam-the previous wearer had clearly pulled a thread-but it was not fixed before it was sent to me. I had to scramble to find a dress the day of the event. I was seriously disappointed. The stylist who responded to me was prompt and professional, she said I'd receive a full refund when they receive everything back. It was a truly beautiful dress........bummed I couldn't wear it, but I did wear the jewelry I picked.

Everyone complimented me on how beautiful I looked in the dress .
The dress runs large . Glad I got two sizes to try on. It was heavy but I was not hot wearing it which I was afraid would happen since it was for an outside summer wedding.

Great dress, perfect for the event.
I rented this dress for a formal, professional event. I decided last timinute to try something new (RTR) and stopped into the LV location the morning of the event. This was the last dress I tried on and I was instantly in love. It was perfect for my body and perfect for the event. I got so many compliments on it. It fit well, fitted but not too tight. The length was good. I would have loved it an inch or so longer, but it was fine as-is. The neckline was not too low, but low enough to be very flattering. All in all, a great piece. I could not have been happier.

Beautiful dress that was too big for me in waist and hips.
Dress was lovely, but too boxy and big through waist and hips. In all fair was I have a hard time with designer sizes. A 12 is WAY too tight throughs the chest, and a regular 14 typically gives me the same problem. This 14W fit great through the bust but was sloppy the rest of the way down. Oh the trials and tribulations of the busty... Not quite a regular size, not quite a plus size...

Felt great and looked great!
The dress was a nice quality and made me feel very elegant. The navy dress with nude shoes worked perfectly for this summer wedding! It was one of the longest weddings I have ever been to and even with all the dancing, I was comfortable all night. I have a large bust and it fit perfectly there, my hips are not as wide so I had a little more room there. Normally I wear 16/18 (mainly because of my bust) in formal dresses and the 14 W was perfect.
