Pretty and fun!

Super pretty and fun dress. Size runs large, I usually wear an 8 but wore this in a 6, with no bra and fit perfectly. Quality material and comfortable.

Low cut

Very pretty dress but was a little too low cut for me. I still wore it but have to be very cautious about bending over or dancing.

Nice dress, too much cleavage for me

This is a really pretty dress and I was impressed with the quality. That being said the amount of cleavage was pretty embarrassing. When I put it on I thought whelp, I won't care after a few drinks, but looking back at the pictures I'm like damn self... why didn't I just wear a dress I already own? As a reference point, I'm a 34D/DD depending on the bra. This was my first time using rtr and I think I'll use it again, but I'll be more careful about picking a dress suited for my body!

I had so many compliments on this dress and it fit my figure perfectly

I wish it had pockets ;) but otherwise this dress was gorgeous. I love the subtle shimmer, the deep red color , the sweetheart neckline, where it fell on my knees. It was a bit heavy material for Las Vegas but I survived just fine in the club dancing.

More black than picture seemed

I loved this dress and only have a few minor complaints. I seemed to be between the 6 and 8 size but went with the 6. The dress was blacker than I expected and the metallic threading throughout is more of a purple. About 3 times throughout the night, the zipper on the back split open! The zipper clasp was still together at the lol but the zipper itself would just split apart, luckily if you lowered the clasp it was able to be zipped back up normally. Overall; it fit well, I didn't have to wear a bra but did wear sticky cups because the dress seemed to smash my chest and I got a ton of compliments!

Gorgeous Color and Great Cut

This dress was a very lovely deep wine color with lighter red sparkle. The pleating and the sweetheart neckline were gorgeous. It is quite long, especially if you have shorter legs. I got a zero, and it was too large in the bust and the waist, and the straps were too long. I would not recommend it for anyone who is very small on the top, because it was a hassle to keep up. I wore this for homecoming and I loved it because it was not at all tacky like some homecoming dresses, it was very sophisticated and elegant.

Classic dress, beautiful fabric

I rented this and one other dress to choose from for a work event for my boyfriends company. Happy I went with this one, definitely more conservative than my other choice. The fabric and neckline were fantastic for fall. My only problem isn't really a dress problem, I'm not very busty so I had to wear a push up with extra inserts( pretty much two bras) in order to fill the dress out properly. Other than that it was a fantastic rental.

Flattering fit

This dress runs big as I typically wear a 0 or 2, and the 0 was a bit big in the bust for me. It was very low cut, often showing much more than I wanted to show up top! I thought the dress was very pretty and flattering. However, I was disappointed in the dress's color- the metallic didn't show through with the lighting in the room, so it basically looked black. I would recommend wearing this dress to a daytime, outdoor occasion to show off its color. Will rent a different dress next time!

Unique but classic, perfect for my senior homecoming!!

I loved this dress!! I have a large bust (32DDD) but small waist so I was worried about a dress fitting my shape. It was perfect in the bust and I was able to wear a regular bra with it, but I do wish that it could've been more form fitting in the waist to show off my figure. I got so many compliments on the dress and loved that it was such a unique color and style. I had a great experience and will definitely rent again!

Loved the color and little bit of shine for a fall wedding- showed off the assets in a classy way!

So comfortable and got compliments all night! I went with the 10 instead of the 12 because I have a short torso and the shoulders fit better with the smaller size. The fabric was nicely structured without being stiff, and the shine was perfectly understated. I paired a belt with it to break up the dress, and be prepared to have the girls on display. I'm usually not comfortable with that, but the dress is so classy, I didn't feel bad about it! Would totally own this dress!

Absolutely loved this dress. If you want to feel comfortable, sexy and glamourous, get this dress! Definitely the type of style that's flattering on all body types. Got so many compliments throughout the night. Easy, no-brander dress!

The color was amazing for a winter wedding!!

The dress fit pretty true to size. My only issue was that it was slightly tight in the chest. I ended up not being able to wear a bra with it which I can't normally pull off but the wiring in the bust of the dress made it work. I received tons of compliments and I felt amazing in it all night!

You feel and look incredible!

It was beautiful, color is stunning and different. Runs a little big... I have a small bust and had to wear a sticky bra with it clipped VERY LOW otherwise you would see it. Perfect for a New Years occasion! Or a wedding right around New Years!

Loved this dress! Perfect quality, great fit.

Loved the fit of this dress! I'm very small on top (32B) with a small waist and bigger hips/butt. I was able to size down to a 6 when I'm definitely an 8-10 in more form fitting dresses. The color looks much different in person, it's more like a sparkly black with a hint of color. In camera flashes, it looks a little more wine colored. I'm 5'9" and it came just a few inches above the knee. I loved this dress and I'm sad to see it go!

Great Party Dress that stands out from the lbd.

Pros- really cool fabric. Gives you a nice feminine shape. Looks great in pics. Cons - runs a little large, so it was a little big in the waist area--which would have looked better a little tighter.

Beautiful dress... if you can fill it!

This dress was pretty and super flattering - the cut & length elongated my short legs, even on my petite frame. That said, the dress did nothing for me up top - it was a beautiful neckline, and I could wear a push-up bra with it, but short of growing about two cup sizes (and probably another band size), the chest area was just loose and I would've had to tape it down to avoid the gaping. But I think even a tiny amount of extra cleavage would have made this dress extra special, and I'm flatter-chested than most women, so I can see this working for many! And props to RTR for being so patient in helping me find a replacement on short notice!

This was perfect for a fall wedding. The dress fit comfortably and it was fun to wear. In some lighting, the dress appears to be very dark, but it has a nice sparkle! I am sad to send it back!

On-the-Hudson venue, breathtaking skyline view, good drinks, great friends, what more can I say?

Overall a very beautiful dress—got a ton of compliments! The silhouette and fabric were perfect for a semi-formal wedding. The fit was very comfortable but, a little big in the bust—I could have possibly went with a size 0. It was also a bit longer than expected but, was by no means dowdy. I paired it with simple black suede pumps, studded crystal statement earrings and a minimal diamond necklace. This dress gets a 8.5-9/10 for me!

It was a very pretty color and different material. The Metallic-ness of the dress was the best part.

Looked like I was wearing a potato sack.

I'm smaller up top and wider in the hips. Usually this puts me between a 0 and a 2. I thought this dress, because it flairs out at the bottom would be perfect to cover my bottom. But somehow everything looked incredibly disproportionate on me. I am petite though so perhaps that is why. I gave it one star because the material was pretty- a wine red with a little sparkle. It would have been perfect for a holiday party.

Beautiful dress! Lots of compliments!

I am usually a size 4 and I wore a size 2 in this dress. The top of the dress was a little big in the size 2. But I still felt amazing in this dress. I hate that my pic doesn't show the true color. The band under the chest hits me at a very flattering place and hides my little tummy. I don't usually show much chest but it was very flattering. I got lots of compliments all NYE. The pic was from the end of the night and I couldn't put my shoes back on. Our NYE party was cocktail attire. I wore the Elizabeth Cole Jet Ombré Bacall Earrings. Check them out, too!

I typically wear a 2 and even the 0 was too big in the chest. I still wore it though and was just careful. Pretty and unusual color.

The fabric was beautiful.

The 8 was too loose, the straps would have had to be pinned and a normal bra would have shown. The 6 was okay without a bra but a bit tight through the midsection. I wore the 6 but will probably choose a different style for future rentals.

Very nice dress. Very flattering, especially in the bust area.

The fit is sexy up top, but the straps are a bit long. The dress poofs out below the waist, but is sexy in a non "in your face I'm trying to be sexy way". Very pretty in person, and lots of compliments.

Beautiful dress, great for curvy women

I can't accurately describe how pretty this dress is in person. Pictures just don't do it justice. It is great for curvier bodies. I was able to wear a regular bra without issue. I wore it for a NYE party and would definitely rent it again for a similar occasion. I did find that it ran a bit big. Even the size 6 that I ended up wearing was just a little large. I didn't even end up trying on the 8 that I rented with it.

This dress is perfect for a fall wedding!

I normally wear a 0 - 2 from White House Black Market, and a 4 - 6 from other stores. I was nervous about what size to get, but went off other reviews based closely on my height and weight and ordered the 2 and back up 4. I could have went with a 0 the night of, but that may have been too tight after dinner. So I went with the 2. This dress was so perfect for a fall wedding. I wish I owned it! I was debating on wearing tights, but it looked so cute with them. I also ordered the ombre earrings that others have suggested and they are so heavy you could literally see my lobes being pulled down by the weight. Luckily I had other earrings that looked just as cute. I would definitely rent this dress again. No issues with the condition, etc.

Great first experience with RTR

Ordered this as my 2nd backup dress but didn't end up needing it. The color is beautiful. The 4 felt loose on me and despite being a 34C, I didn't really fill in the top. A size 2 may have been better all around. Cute length for the shorter ladies out there (I am 5'0").

I got a ton of compliments from other guests at the wedding!

The dress runs large. I usually wear a size 12, occasionally a 10, and I was nervous because there was no 12 available. I had read the reviews that said it runs big and got the 10, which fit great. I'm a size 36D and the cut showed cleavage but not too much. The middle of the dress held me in well and overall the dress was very flattering.

Loved this dress! It was a little loose in the top though.

I wish the straps were a little short, the top a little tighter, but overall really liked this dress and it's style. I wore it with a strapless bra. I suggest wearing it with a nude color because dancing at the wedding made it show a little in the top... Great for an October wedding though!

Perfect party dress

I loved this dress. I wore my usual size--the straps were a little long on me, but as long as I didn't slouch it was ok. Had I gone a size down it probably would have been too snug in the waist. Was able to wear a normal bra, which was nice. The subtle sparkle was really pretty and I got tons of compliments!

Best Dress Ever!

This was easily the best dress I've ever worn - I had been searching high and low for a dress and this was a godsend! I have to admit I was skeptical based on the photos on the website; like all the other dresses I had seen, it didn't seem like anything special. But when I tried it on, I felt absolutely beautiful! It made me look great and I did not want to take it off at the end of the night! I would definitely rent this again and recommend it to anyone looking for a unique, sophisticated, and edgy dress for a formal event. I wish I could keep it forever!

Beautiful color & fun style

I loved the color! I got a bunch of compliments & felt comfortable all night until I ate too much food which of course was not the dress's fault. :) I usually wear an 8 which was much too big on me. The straps on the 6 were still a little big, but manageable. Overall, loved it & would rent it again!
