Beautiful, comfortable dress – wearable to any occasion
I ordered a 14 and a 16. Both ended up fitting well but I decided to wear the 14 because it hugged my hips better! I wore the dress first for a funeral with black stockings, and the next day for a wedding with nude pumps and earrings. This dress was so comfortable and versatile. Would highly recommend.

Great choice for a black tie optional wedding!
I have recently changed sizes and was worried about ending up with something too small so I ordered an 18 and a 20 for backup but I really should have gone 16/18. The 18 was a little loose in the shoulders and I felt it shifting during the night. Otherwise it was perfect- comfortable, easy to wear, and very pretty. The lace and the unique back make it feel glamorous.

Comfortable and classic!
I rented this to chaperone prom held by the high school I teach at. One word: AMAZING!! I received compliments all night on the dress. I felt amazing in it! It was the perfect length for my 5'9 frame. The only "con" I have is that the lace on the neck was a little itchy, but I hardly noticed it throughout the night. I ordered the 14W but could have easily worn a 14. The 14W provided a little more "wiggle room." Paired it with hot pink heels!! Looking at buying it to have all the time! Great dress!

Best dress I've ever rented!
This dress is absolutely classy and beautiful. I rented it for a black and white party and I will definitely be renting it again (I may even buy it). It's very well made and comfortable. I usually wear a size 16 but I wasn't sure about the shape of the dress as it's a bit closer to the body but I should have went with the 16. The 18W was slightly big but nothing I couldn't handle. The zipper in the back gives it such a fun touch. It's also a lighter dress than I expected. The sleeves are see through and the inner liner is light. Like I said, I want to buy this dress. I got so many compliments and my husband LOVED it. I also have a 38G bust and had plenty of room.

Well made. hugs every curve the right way
Rented for fall/evening wedding. It was perfect. I felt classy and lady like all evening. The inside slip is very soft and forgiving. The lace isn't itchy at all! I had loads of compliments on the back zippper. Fit true to size. ( at the time I wore this I was 200lbs even) and a 34g bra size)

So simple yet fancy! Wore for 2 different events, perfect LBD!
Honestly, this is one of those rentals that I wished I could keep in my closet for EVER! I rented as my free birthday dress and paid a little ($6) extra to get a longer rental so I could wear it out for my birthday but also to an honors awards ceremony. It was perfect for both, this LBD is second to none. Fit my 38G bosom and was even more perfect with some spanx.

Classic Dress
I plan events and I wore this to a 300 person dinner we planned. It was conservative enough for work but I felt really great in it. It was comfortable and flattering without being too revealing. I got several compliments. I'm short so I was worried the dress would be too long but it hit right at my knees. I also have a big bust (40DD) and this dress fit over the girls fine. I loved the sleeve but the dress is a thicker material so it was fine for a February event but in my opinion it would be too hot for a July event .

Dress was great!
This dress was perfect for attending my husbands military formal. I'm usually a size 16 but I have larger arms so I had to wear the larger size (18) so the arms weren't so tight. Can't wait to use RTR again!

This was my back up dress and I'm so glad I ordered it! It was simple, classy, and beautiful.
I ordered this dress as my back up for a Christmas party. It was classy and beautiful and I received a lot of compliments. I feel like it ran a little big. However it was flattering for my curvy figure and not too short so I felt comfortable all night.

Great free for a date night
I loved this dress! It was so cute, not too short! I have a big bust area, & this dress still wore comfortably! The zipper on the back is really cute, & you can unzip it yourself! I have bigger arms as well, & the lace fit great.. Didn't feel like my arms were going to bust out. I wish I could buy this dress for myself!

Loved it!
Absolutely loved this dress! Fit perfectly, didn't itch and was so easy to wear. Really just pull it on, zip it up and go! I'm between a 18 and 20 in my jeans and ended up wearing the 20 in this. So I'd say it's true to size. Would definitely rent again!

Understated elegance. The lace was so simple but very sophisticated.
Fit a bit loose in the belly, so I was more than happy to wear my smaller backup size. Taking a star away because the armpits of the dress smelled a bit of body odor and I had to deal with keeping my arms down all evening.

This dress made me feel confident!
I love this dress!! I would love to buy it! The dress fit well; not too tight so I was able to dance and be comfortable in it all day and night! I added the belt to give myself a little more shape. I wore this dress as a personal attendant in a wedding. I would recommend this dress for many occasions - you can dress it up or dress it down. Great first experience with RTR!

Compliments
This dress was probably the best select for me. It's made for all shapes and sizes! The sizes run a little big (depending on your actual body type) which is good because I ended up wearing the smallest size I ordered. Loved it! :)

I loved that the lace 3/4 sleeves covered my arms with lace. I also loved the zipper down the back.
I usually wear a 14/16 or L/XL. This dress was baggy on me. I also had a hard time keeping the dress on my shoulders.

It was very comfortable and the black color was super flattering.
I was concerned about the sleeves fitting but they were a great fit. Also the length was comfortable for sitting and standing without being too short. The back is cut down but I was able to wear a regular bra with it which was great

I felt beautiful, looked beautiful and the dress fit like a dream! A classic little black dress!
The 18W was just a little large but it was comfortable and didn't look "too" large. Everything was very comfortable and I loved that I could wear a regular bra with it and a pair of heels and fancy chandelier earrings and it was just enough.

Slimming, Sexy & Comfortable !
I wore this size 18 to an engagement party. SO COMFORTABLE ! Fit perfect in all the right places. True to size. Not too light, not too heavy material. Just perfect. The full length zipper was stylish and easy to use. I would rent this over and over and over again ! Bra Size 40F

i loved the neckline
the dress was a bit heavy and got a bit hot while dancing but overall I was incredibly happy with this dress and loved loved the dress, how I felt, how I looked and got compliments all evening. I wore a regular underwire bra and spanx with it and it gave me a clean line from top to bottom. I wore nude heels and small pearl earrings and it was perfect.

Love the fit! It was a bit loose so it left some room for my 8 month pregnant belly (I did size up to plan for this accommodation though). Very comfortable and numerous compliments. I would definitely wear this dress again.

The ordering process was super easy!
Fit true to size. The dress was a little longer than I would normally wear, but adding a belt made for a younger look. Unfortunately, UPS attempted to drop off my dress while I was at work and did not leave it. I had to wait an extra day to get my dress. If you're in a time crunch, this is something to consider! Try to contact UPS about leaving the dress prior to their first attempt.

Outshone most of the other presenters in a polished and professional way.
Rented this dress to give a closing lecture at a museum exhibition. The dress was very comfortable. It ran fairly true to size. The zipper in the back kept getting caught on the seat when I was driving but other than that it looked very professional
