It was so nice to have strangers stop me to say how gorgeous I looked. My mom thought I lost weight!
The cut is very forgiving, which was great as I was 12 weeks pregnant at the time but hadn't told anyone I was expecting yet. No one could tell! Several though I had lost weight!

Got soooo many compliments on this dress!
A lot of people said this dress runs large, but I didn't think so. I was also worried about some of the reviews stating that it was tight in the arms, but again, I had no problem with that and I have big upper arms. I am 5'2" and the dress fell to right above/at my knees. Also, there were enough reviews that said this was kind of boxy and they needed a belt to give it some more shape. And again, I had no problems. This dress runs true to size. I felt so beautiful in this outfit, and I don't say that often.

Very nice dress. Covers all the right places. I felt very good and confident
I ordered this dress in 14W and 16W but ended up wearing 16W. I am size 16 and ordered 14 only bc people were saying that it runs bigger. I did not have this problem may be bc my bottom was always bigger the the top. I had a lot of complements and people even said that I lost weight.

Perfect dress!
I cannot say enough great things about this dress. I've never worn a dress that had no shape to it before so I was worried about the fit, but it's relaxed and looked fantastic on! The dress was clearly worn before (you could see a little fraying on the lace) but I guarantee no one could see except me. I was worried that the length would be a little awkward on me, but with some high heels it worked out great! Highly highly recommend!

This dress was amazing!
This dress ran true to size and was so classy looking and comfortable! It had a stretch to it that made for a great dress to get out on the dance floor in! The lace was so soft and I loved having the sleeves!

The dress is just as beautiful as I hoped it would be. I selected the 18 and ordered the 16 as my back up. To my surprise the 18 was a little large. The 16 fit perfectly. I received tons of compliments and would def rent again!

Great customer service and gorgeous dress!
Great fit and very forgiving style. Hides everything you want it to, but the dress still gives a nice shape to your body. I wore this to a bachelorette party and was very comfortable walking, dancing, and sitting in this dress. Only con is that I wore it in the summer and the sleeves are heavier than they look. I was very hot- but that was my fault for renting a sleeved dress in the summer.

Perfectly elegant
I love this dress so much. Actually on it in a few different colors except not black so just to make sure I ordered both the 14 and the 16. I was not exactly sure but I know that this dress tends to run a little big. I ended up wearing 14 because I knew that the 16 was going to stretch out over the night. This is what has happened in the past. The 14 was a little snug at first but within about 30 minutes it fit perfectly! This dress it's perfect for a wedding. That lace makes it elegant and timeless. You will not go wrong renting this and it comes in so many colors!!

You feel classically beautiful. Great neckline. You just feel pretty.
It's warm. Consider an alternative if event is outside in warm climates.

Comfortable and beautiful dress!
I highly recommend ordering this dress (on the right); there is a little bit of stretch to the lace (including the sleeves) so I never felt uncomfortable even going from standing to sitting to standing, etc. It seems to run a little large. If there had been the option of ordering a 12 that would have fit a little better. I lost a little of my figure in it, but that also meant I knew nothing was going to show that I would be self conscious about all night. The neckline is beautiful and the full zip detail on the back got a lot of compliments. I wore it to a formal cocktail party and it was totally appropriate. Overall a great dress!

Pretty dress! The scalloped edges along the neck, back, and bottom gave it a nice feminine touch.
I wish it would have been a bit more shaped/form fitting. The exposed zipper was a nice touch.

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

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.

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! :)

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.

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!

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.

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.

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!

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!

Boxy and not flattering on me at all
Beautiful dress but just felt very boxy S it has no shape to it al at, add the high neck line and it felt more of a core up than trying to show off. Not for me.
