Lovely, Elegant AND Comfortable
Size worn: 8L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress to a wedding when I was 7 months pregnant, and it was so comfortable. I felt very elegant in it. I also received so many compliments that I would definitely rent it again!

I wore a 10L, but it was still quite short (although I am 6ft tall!). Very comfortable and I received lots of compliments!

perfect for 6 month bump!
Size worn: 8L
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
this dress gave me plenty of room for my 6 month pregnancy bump. I think it would be flattering on many shapes. the straps around the waist made it fit perfectly while still giving me plenty of room. even with the long, I had to wear flat shoes but some of that can contribute to my belly raising the hemline. thanks for a wonderful experience even while pregnant! I felt like an Egyptian queen!

The unforgettable moment was RTR letting me return it for a swap! Great customer service!
Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
The fit was tight under the arms and was too short. It came to my ankles without heels and I am 5'5". Also, it's more of a baby doll dress than pictured; there's very minimal cinching below the bustline and swallowed me.

This was a backup dress
Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The fit was good (surprising since Temperley tends to run small) but on my curvy bod it didn't look like I thought it would and accentuate my waistline. Ended up wearing a different gown. This dress would be lovely on someone with a tall, willowy figure though.

Great bump-friendly dress!
Size worn: 8L
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this to my brother's wedding at 37 weeks pregnant and got TONS of compliments. This dress is beautiful, but runs quite large. Perfect to hide a bump or your mid-section, but I'd definitely size-down if you are not expecting. Pre-pregnancy size was a 6 and I only needed an 8 while 9 months pregnant with a 36F bust (I gave birth 2 weeks later!) - I probably could've even fit in the 6 if I had one to try.

Wore this dress to my winter wedding rehearsal and it was just perfect. The dress makes a statement, while still being comfortable and conservative enough for the church rehearsal. It does run a bit large, so I wore a size smaller than usual and it was perfect.

Didn't end up wearing
Size worn: 8L
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this dress for a wedding and was unable to wear it. It ran very large and the ties that I thought I could cinch the dress with were missing. The length, which I was most worried about, was great with a pair of 3 inch heels. I called RTR after trying the dress on and spoke with Jocelyn. She was able to help me select two more dresses and shipped them to my hotel in Florida. The dresses she sent were beautiful, and overall it was a great experience. I would definitely recommend RTR to anyone and will definitely rent from again in the future.

Comfortable & stylish while pregnant
Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Vacation
I wore this at almost 8 months pregnant, and usually wear a size 6...so I would say it runs big! Great dress for pregnancy, it is very comfortable and accommodating. The bust was a bit tighter than I would have liked but the size 6 was not available. Really recommend and I would wear it if not pregnant as well.

I safety pinned the key-hole since I was wearing it to event attended by conservative types. Lovely! Thought I was going to wear it to a wedding, but it wasn't formal enough - but we had lots of pre-wedding events and this was perfect for it.

This dress was easy to wear and very comfortable without sacrificing style!
Size worn: 12L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress wears beautifully and the unique collar garnered many compliments. It is easy to wear and keeps a beautiful shape. Jewelry is easy to... keep it minimal thanks to the collar. the 12L was perfect for my height and in 3 inch heels.

Henna Party Dress
Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Loved this! Just enough exotic flair to fit in at a henna party full of gorgeous traditional embroidered dress, but simple enough that I still felt like my self. Great fit, TTS. I am 5'8'' 130lbs. On the short side, had to wear completely flat sandals.

Great Maternity dress!
Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size

I rented this dress for my baby shower...I haven't put on too much weight just my belly and this dress was perfect! I haven't bought any maternity clothes so far (I was 8 months for the shower) and this dress let me feel sexy and beautiful! I am 5'6 and the long fit perfectly..the top was very flattering on my "new" chest and the tie fit just above my belly. All in all it was a huge hit!

This dress was my second choice. I liked it because it flowed so beautifully and was unusual. Although the dress was as pretty as pictured, it ran a little large. I hope that helps. Renting was a great experience and super easy! Thanks!

I rented this dress in a size 8 and a size 6. The size 6 hung off of me loosely and it looked like an unflattering tent. I definitely wouldn't recommend this for petite girls.

I was surprised to find that the 2 fit me so perfectly in light of this being a British Designer (whom I've found to run small). I'm 5'4" and wore 3 inch heels and the length was perfect. I got a ton of compliments and wish I owned this dress!

I loved this dress -- it was perfect for an evening wedding. I received lots of comments. It was super comfortable. I normally wear an 8 -- they only had an 8 to rent at the time. It fit well, but I could have also worn a 6. In terms of length, the long was perfect for 3" heels.

I absolutely loved this dress it was super comfy and fun for a wedding that I attended where everyone danced. I ended up going with the size smaller since I am smaller through the waist! Absolutely loved the detail on neck. One problem is sometimes is comes undone I had to squeeze with tweezers in bathroom to keep shut!

I got this dress to wear to a wedding and received TONS of compliments, which was unexpected. I have recently, ahem, packed on a couple (20) extra pounds, so I needed something to hide my new gut and booty situation. This worked like a charm. Nobody could tell I had extra padding, and I think I ended up looking pretty darn good in photos.

LOVED this dress! It was comfortable and the fit could not have been more flattering. I received many compliments. Agree that the clasp in front came undone several times, but I didn't notice it often because the dress stayed closed. Highly recommend this dress!!

I wore this dress to a black tie wedding, it was so comfortable and very unique, I just wish i had gotten a size smaller because it was a little big, although the tie does help to reign it in. A few things to be wary of: the clasp in the front kept coming undone so I ended up sewing it together for the event, a few of the studs were loose around the collar, and the fabric of the dress seemed a little worn... BUT overall, loved this dress.

I was a bit skeptical about wearing a long dress, but I wanted something a little different for this particular event. I received tons of compliments! I stood out from the crowd and felt like a queen!! Even when I thought women were staring at me with disgust, as I got closer to them they all said, "I like your dress!" Some men even said, "Hey, your dress is like Cleopatra!" If you're going to a formal event and want something different and memorable, rent this dress!!
