Love the lace!

When I first took the dress out of the bag, I thought this dress looked kind of old. After I put it on, I loved it! The material is a little heavy so it's a perfect dress for cooler temperatures. The dress itself is very comfortable, with a little stretch. I usually wear a 14 or 16 and went with the smaller size for this dress. The back comes down a little bit, but it is not too revealing. I also loved it because I was able to wear a regular bra with it!

The dress runs large. I usually wear 16 and the 14w fit great. It could even have gone maybe one more size down but I decided to keep it and not wear spanx like I planned and be more relaxed in it. The material was thick so I didn't need shape wear. The dress was so comfortable. It was prefect for a formal wedding and comfortable and roomy enough that I could dance without worrying about pulling down on it or anything. I wore it with pearls and black pumps. I received so many compliments. I will rent again just for the compliments alone. If I didn't know better, I'd think RTR put them all up to it.

Super comfortable as lace had some stretch. It fit me perfectly in length and in arms and chest. This was nice as I am on the tall side. It was fairly loose in the midsection.

Pretty lace. Loved the length and the exposed zipper and back neckline. Definitely ran large. I wore the 14 but probably should've worn in the 12. Maybe my body type dictates, but I didn't feel like it did much for me. I would have preferred something that was more structured and fitted around the waist to give me more shape. I felt as though I had to belt it.

Nice dress

Size worn: 14W
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
Nice lace dress. Smallest size to order was a 14 so was not able to order a back up size 12, but I took the gamble and rented the 14. I'm typically around a 12-14 (more so a 14 only because of my bust). It was definitely a bit bigger on my body and I needed to wear a small belt around the waist as it looked "baggy". The shoulders were also lose as well but overall the dress was comfortable for a night out. Because of my situation I recommend ordering a size down and as back up your true size.

Too boxy for my body shape

Size worn: 14W
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
I am 5'2, normally a 14-16. I got this dress and although the dress fit well, the shape did nothing for me. Also I feel like it made me look a lot more busty than I already am (definitely do not need more attention in that area!) It's a beautiful dress, it would just look better on someone a bit taller and with more shape.

I ordered a 20W and a 22W and to be honest I felt the 20W was a little snug so I went with the 22W and was comfortable all evening and received several compliments, including my husband who liked the dress. I was worried that I wasn't going to receive the dress by the time promised (8:00 PM) and did in fact receive it by 7:30 PM.

Dress was bigger on me than I imagined it would be. Was pleasantly surprised when the 16 fit after reading the reviews I made sure to also get the 18, but didn't take it out of the plastic! I'm 6'1" and every once in a while I felt like I might have been showing my spanks when I bent over... but nothing that prevented me from leaping through the air to get the bouquet! LOL. Definitely recommend. Felt beautiful and so comfortable. Had so much fun I forgot to take photos! Hoping to post one soon.

Fits true to size. Great fit for those of us who have been blessed with hips and a butt. I loved the style of the dress however, the zipper in the back is not my style but that has nothing to do with fit. Lots of complements. Perfect length.

This is plus-size sizing! In other RTR dresses, I'm a regular 14-16, but as this was plus-sized dress, I really could've used a 12 in this line, if they made such a thing. Overall the dress well nice and well made, the lace was gorgeous.

I absolutely loved this dress. I wish I could've kept it! The black lace was very classic and the long sleeves were perfect for a winter wedding. It was a little big in the mid section but it was very roomy and comfortable. I had to use my backup size since the 14 was damaged by a previous renter. I think the 14 would've fit better but the 16 was just fine. I would definitely recommend this to other renters and I would actually rent this again!

Pictures do not do this dress justice! This was actually sent to me by customer service when my back-up size was unavailable for a dress in my original order. As this was the day before my husband's work Xmas party, time was short and the lovely person in customer service found this dress for me based on my request for sleeves and mid-length. While I was on the phone with her, I was looking at the website, too. When she suggested this dress, I wasn't terribly excited, but as I was worried my other choices wouldn't fit, I was willing to try. The dress was overnighted to me, and arrived at 9am at my door. My original order had arrived the evening before, and both of the dresses in it were wonderful and fit very well. I considered not even trying this dress on, as it looked very plain on the hanger. I'm so glad I gave it a chance! It was absolutely gorgeous!!! The lace is a heavy, almost embroidered lace, but quite soft with a bit of stretch, so very comfortable. The sleeves are unlined, and came midways down my forearm, which was a very flattering length; the neckline is a boatneck style which I loved (even though I usually go with something a bit more revealing!). The fit, while not tight, was a bit body-con, just skimming my curves, and came down to just about an inch below my knee. This dress was incredibly elegant and well-made, and I couldn't wait to wear it! I wore the dress with a low-heeled fabric pump, nude hose, and jet heavy chandelier earrings, which created a very vintage, Old Hollywood look. I loved how this dress looked and felt. I received so many compliments! At least a dozen women came up just to ask me where I had bought it (and I told them all about RTR!), and to tell me how gorgeous it was! I even had a few of my husband's male coworkers make a point of telling him that they liked it! I would rent this again in a heartbeat, and would love to add it to my closet as my go-to LBD.

I really enjoyed how sturdy this dress was. I added a gold belt to it to help add a curve.

The zipper in the back got me to many compliments. I added a gold belt around my waist because I felt it fell a little flat/boxy on my body. The belt added the curve and sinch at my waist that I was looking for. I felt the dress was a little bit long, not so long I felt frumpy, but long enough to need to wear a heel. I enjoyed the dress - it was heavy on my body and was definitely warm. I would recommend to anyone needing a dress for a formal affair.

This is probably my favorite dress; I would buy it if I didn't keep changing sizes. The nice thing is, it's fit at every size! It skims the body enough to not look like a sack, while still feeling loose enough that you can indulge in Holiday goodies. Even for my ample bust (despite what the profile says, I'm a 34G), I look defined but not overlarge. HIGHLY recommend to anyone with a large chest and apple shape, but I think it would look great on most bodies. I'd give it 6 stars if I could!

I didn't end up wearing this dress because it was just a little too big. I normally wear a 12, but went for a 14 here. It actually fit everywhere except around my midsection where it was a little baggy. This would be great for a work outing/dinner, etc. It's total coverage and classic.
