So classy!
Out of 3 dress options I had for a reception at the Spanish Embassy, this one was the winner! Glad I got the 16W - it fit perfect. Lace detail around the neckline and hem were just some of the small details that made it great. The sleeves were structured but comfortable. The zipper in the back unzips from both ends so you can either keep it a straight column or raise the bottom zip for a nice slit. Regular bra was fine underneath - the back V didn't go down too far - and it was roomy enough up too that 38DD's weren't squished. Can be dressed up or down (my event was "black tie recommended"). Would def rent again!

Easy to dress up for a formal wedding!
I wore this dress for a formal, evening wedding of a co-worker. It was beautiful and quite forgiving, as many previous reviewers have noted. I dressed it up with gold accessories to match the back zipper. I loved that it was modest up top (as I am quite busty), but still feminine with the black lace. Would rent again.

Classic (& Comfy) LBD

Easy Elegance
I got this for my plus-sized sis who is picky. Er. Mah. Gerd. Picky. She looked polished and professional. She didn't have to think about any part of this dress fitting funny or shifting around. It was easy elegance. She told me that there were a few gents who accidentally made appreciative noises upon seeing the zipper up the back. That zipper also had a slimming effect of "breaking up the real estate."

Gorgeous dress!!
This was my second rental and I absolutely loved it. The pictures do not do the dress justice. The lace detail was very beautiful. I wore this to a formal work event and felt beautiful. The dress was a little big so I wore the smaller of the two I ordered. Can't wait for my next event to try something else but I would rent this dress again.

First RTR order...I'm in love!
I rented this dress for a holiday party. It runs a little large but was very comfortable and stylish. I paired it with a dark red belt to give it a bit more shape in the waist. Overall I was very happy with the RTR process and the dress!

Loved it!
I have a chest size that is incredibly difficult to accommodate plus hips and a butt! I loved this dress for its look, comfort, and style. The zipper in the back made it even more stunning in person. I ended up wearing the smaller of the two sizes. It's hard for me to say if this ran big or not because of where I need a dress to fit, but it was still a great dress. This was my first RTR experience and definitely won't be my last.

Beautiful Dress. I usually wear an 18 but had to wear a 20. I'm 5'2 and the dress fit perfectly to the knee. I received a lot of compliments on the dress. I will definitely use RTR again!!!

Perfect dress for a gala!!!
I wasn't sure about renting as someone on the line between normal size and plus size(205, 5'5"). I rented the 16W and the 18W as my backup. I wore the 16W and it was a tiny bit big all over but not so bad I couldn't wear it. Got SO many compliments on it. Hit just below the knee on my 5'5" frame. Loved the three-quarter length sleeves. It was a warm day here (85) so I was nervous I'd be hot in the dress as it's a bit heavy but that wasn't a problem. I also rented a gold clutch and a turquoise and gold Kendra Scott necklace to wear and got MANY compliments on everything! I'm a believer in RTR and will be renting again soon!!!!!

So many compliments!
This dress probably runs a little big -- sheaths don't always fit my apple-shape that well. The length was good, even when sitting, and I liked that the lace texture wasn't itchy or chafing.

This dress was classy, comfy, and hid all my problem areas!
This dress was a teeny bit on the large side, but I'd rather it be just a bit too big than just a bit too small. It was incredibly comfortable, and despite being a tad loose, fit otherwise perfectly. There were a few bits of white stretch showing through around the hem, but it was only noticeable when I was super bored and looking closely at it. I would totally love to own this dress!

This was my first RTR and I couldn't have asked for a better experience! The dress was stunning, the fit was perfect and the order and return process was simple! The only thing I didn't like is that I had to return the dress. I will definitely rent again!!

Pretty but too small. :(
Because it's a sheath, I ordered a size up from what I normally wear. Although after trying it on, I realized I should have ordered at least two sizes bigger, possibly three. I'm 5'7" and it hit several inches above my knees, a bit short for my taste. The design of the dress is really pretty, but because I'm pear-shaped, it just didn't work. I'd give it another try in the future, but I'd be sure to size up at least two sizes.

I wore this dress for a fancier wedding this past weekend and got TONS of compliments on it. It fit great, was comfortable to be in all night & dance, and the whole process of getting it quickly the week of the wedding was great. Will for sure be doing this again in the future!

This dress is simple, modest, and stunning!
I am a boudoir and contemporary glamour portrait photographer, and I included a dress rental for every session. My client is 71--yes 71!--and wanted a dress that was simple, modest, and stunning--this dress fit all of the requirements. She is 5'6", 42D bust, and size 14 dress size but she wore the 16, which fit her perfectly, perhaps a tiny bit big. We paired the dress with the Solar Flare Earrings to give a polished look. http://shannonhemauerphotography.com/

I felt beautiful and comfortable. Danced the night away! Dress does run a little bigger than expected but since I had read reviews on it I was prepared. Incorporated a belt and some fun shoes and it was a hit. Totally recommend it. Great quality dress.

Compliments and comfort!!
The pros are that i was able to throw it on Without having to unzip it.. I had no one to zip Me up. It was very comfortable for the tummy area, got alot of head turns.. Im 5'2 weight 220 ---- bust size 40 D ... It fit very well.. Went dancing with it and it was comfortable.. I feel like the sleeves were a little on the longer side.. But it wasnt that Big of a deal. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Would wear again :D

This was a great dress that was easy to wear.
This dress fit well because it was stretchy. It came right above my knee. The back was a little lower than I thought it would be but didn't require a different bra. I wore this to a conservative event and it was very appropriate.

I loved this dress!
I ordered the size 14 of this dress based on the way past rentals have fit, but it did run a little large and long for my body. If I had ordered the 12 it would have been perfect. The dress though is gorgeous, very classy and comfortable.

Didn't wear
Was sent the 16 as a back up (the 14 wasn't available) and probably could have worn it any way but it just didn't sit right on the hips so I requested a replacement. It's a beautiful dress though!
