Very fast shipping an lots of great choices!

Wore this dress for an annual charity benefit for Big Brothers/Big Sisters. I love the deep blue color and how this dress hugged my body, while still making my top look good without being too tight. Since I'm a nursing mother, sizes are hard to come by since I am more top heavy right now. Hubby even asked if we could keep the dress! Will definitely rent again. My only thing was that the sides of the dress by my chest kind of popped out. I tried fashion tape, but it didn't want to stick.

Such a beautiful and well fitting gown!

I tend to fluctuate sizes often and ordered my usual size and a size above...I wore the size up because I felt it was more flattering, although both fit fine and it was simply preference. Throughout the evening the size up dos stretch a bit so I wouldn't worry if it's a smaller size because it will stretch and fit you well throughout wearing it! Trust me, THIS IS A FLATTERING DRESS! Even on your worst day I think this would look amazing ! It shows all the right features and makes you look very slim! Loved it.

Stunning color and perfect cut

I got compliments on this dress all night when I wore to a black tie wedding. Great body hugging fit without being too tight to dance in. I wore five inch heels so I went with the 2L and it skimmed the floor perfectly. It was a bit of a heavy weight so i wouldn't wear this to an outdoor event unless it was a cooler day or night. This picture was not enhanced at all so be prepared for a very vibrant color when you order. Loved this dress!

Really comfortable and beautiful color

This is a great dress, super flattering despite being relatively form fitting. The only down side is how simple it is - I strongly advise adding accessories and pretty heavy ones at that. Also it's a little heavy so it's good for cooler weather days

Perfect for a black tie optional wedding

Got a few sizes of the same dress and wore the 6L, which was a little big around the middle but not as insanely tight on the hips/butt as other sizes. The material is heavy and nice. I'm 5'9" and the long worked well with 2 inch heels.

Fabulous dress

Loved this dress and the hubby loved it even more! It's a thicker material perfect for the fall, I didn't wear a bra and didn't have any trouble with the cold ;) I ended up wearing the bigger size only because I didn't like how the smaller one was so fitted, fabric has some stretch.

I loved the dress it was way too large in the waist and bust. I would need a 00. The length was a little long on me I wore 3in heels.

-

If you are small busted, I would suggest sizing down. It was a bit large in the chest for me. The material is great though and very comfortable. The fit can be very complimentary, but in the wrong light can highlight some imperfections so just be aware of this when taking photos. At 5'7" the long was probably 1/2 in too long with 3.5" heels - obviously not a problem if you just have higher heels!

The color was stunning and fit was perfect!! Very elegant...

I am 5'4" and had to wear 6" heels to avoid stepping on the dress. I was ok with that since it was such a beautiful gown but beware if you are ANY shorter... I was nervous as this was my first long gown ordered, but I loved it. The train did get stepped on a few times in a crowd but not too bad...

I rented this dress during my stay in NYC for my 5th wedding anniversary. So convenient and easy!

I ordered both the 12 and 14 and they both fit. I decided on the 14 because it was slightly looser through my abdomen and I was wearing tights (because it was so cold in NY) so you couldn't see the line from the tights. I LOVED this dress, and was able to wear it with my standard strapless bra. I got many compliments.

Elegant, sexy, fit like a glove

I love this dress. It's my favorite rental to date, and I wish I could keep it. Form fitting without being too snug - this dress was VERY comfortable. The cobalt is gorgeous and really stands out. I am usually not a petite size (I'm 5'6) but RTR was out of the 2 regular. Luckily, the length was great. You could see the toes of my heels but that was fine with me - less tripping while dancing! Very cute on us hourglass girls, as it really highlights the waist and booty. I would definitely recommend this dress.

Most flattering dress I've ever worn!

Beautiful dress! It was form fitting, but because the fabric is thick it hides a lot and smooths imperfections. The petite size was perfect for me; I wore a 2.5 inch heel (i am 5'2) and the length was perfect.

PERFECT

Great to show off my shoulders at a black tie affair where I wanted to cover up my chest. I'm 5 11 and the long was perfect in 3 inch heels. Fabric has a little give but not stretchy, perfect for dancing and eating.

Amazing fit!

This was my backup, backup dress, and I only ordered it because my original dress had no long options available. I am so glad I did! My customer service experience was amazing as this was my first time using RTR. The color of the dress was stunning. I got more compliments wearing this than any other dress I've worn. Many reviews I read said that this dress had stretch to it, almost like a jersey dress. I have to disagree. While it definitely had some stretch, it was fairly restricting through the hip. I also have a mostly true hourglass shape, wearing an 8 in pants and a 4 on top. The 8 fit great everywhere except was slightly loose in the waist. I am a 34DDD and did not have to wear a bra with this. I am just under 5'9" and the length was perfect, skimming my toes in the front and the ground in the back. I absolutely will be renting this dress again in every color available!

This was a great dress for my law school formal! (Black tie optional).

True to size, the color was gorgeous!! I got so many compliments about the fit and color. The dress was fitted but not too tight. The racerback style helped hold the top part of the dress up, so no unnecessary adjusting needed! The body of the dress was fitted around the hips and let's out as you go down. Overall great dress and great experience with RTR! I'm already planning to rent for my next event! I wore this with a 1.5 inch heel and it didn't drag on the ground, the front is a little shorter than the back so less of a tripping hazard!

Wore this to a black tie wedding. It was fab. Fit, color, it was all stunning.

Fit was long. I ordered the 0R and 2P and though the 2p length was better, the 0R was much more flattering and form fitting throughout and I went with the 0 and just wore the highest heels I had!

I felt like a million bucks in this dress! Simple elegance!

I had rented this dress in red size 10L last fall. Loved it so much rented it in blue size 8R(L wasn't available) I'm truly in between 8 an 10 usually, but 8 was a bit better in this dress. Wore kitten heals with regular length and worked fine (I'm 5'9"). Dress is super comfortable, easy to move in, no adjusting all night. Did sport the spanx underneath, but I do with any dress! Got tons of compliments and felt amazing all night.

So sad I couldn't wear it.

I rented the 0L and 2L for a gala and unfortunately only received the 0L because the previous renter didn't return the 2L on time (not cool!). RTR sent me an alternate dress that I ended up wearing and loved because the 0 was too snug on my hips/butt. I got it on and it looked fantastic, but it was a bit inappropriate for a work event. The 2 definitely would have worked better.

Stunning color and flattering shape!

I rented this for a formal wedding. I received SO many compliments. The simplicity of it makes it so elegant. The rich blue was so eye-catching and looked lovely on my olive skin tone. The shape really made this dress stand out - it hugged all the right curves. Being 5'2", I needed a good high heel to pull it off. I will definitely rent this dress again without reservation.

Perfect dress for a spring wedding

Wore this dress to a formal spring wedding and absolutely loved it. I ordered the 2p and 4p, the 2p fit perfectly on top and 4p fit perfectly on bottom so I ended up using the 4p with some fashion tape to make the top work. The material was exquisite and the length was perfect for low wedges. Some people mentioned that spanx were necessary underneath but I found the material to be extremely forgiving and not show anything I didn't want it to. Definitely recommend this dress for anyone!

Great color

I ended up having to rent the regular length because no longs were available. It was okay because I wore flats but I'm 5'11 so the longer length would have fit much better. The top was too big but I'm small chested so that's to be expected. Love love the color and the cut, very stunning in person. Wasn't my absolute favorite but I would recommend.

Beautiful color; steaming and Spanx are musts

When I reserved this dress it was brand new with no reviews, so I used the feedback on the red version which I highly recommend doing. My weight tends to fluctuate and I ordered the 6L and the 8L as backup. The 6 was too small and I went with the 8 which was still fairly snug. I wore the Spanx that go all the way up around the rib cage which I also recommend. The waist-high ones were very obvious when I tried them on underneath. I was planning on wearing a Nu Bra but decided to go without since I had plenty of support from the dress and in my opinion it looks better on a smaller-looking chest. The color of the dress is beautiful and I received many compliments. I wore it to an afternoon wedding that was supposed to be formal attire but many people were underdressed. In this dress I felt like the perfect medium between the fancy bridesmaids and guests who looked too casual. My only real issue was the quality of the dress and the lining inside. When I first tried it on I thought I wasn't even going to wear it because the vertical seams of the lining were so visible. The seams are huge and in transit left wrinkles that were not very easy to get out with my steamer which is essentially commercial grade. I would never pay retail or even half of retail for this dress if I saw it at the store just because of how poorly designed the lining is. Everything turned out fine though and I'm glad I rented this dress for the occasion.

Beautiful dress! Received many compliments. Would totally rent this again

Normally I wear a size 2, however it ran a little large in the bust area. And the size 2 was only available in regular length, being 5'-6" with 3-4 inch heels the regular length was too short for me, personally. The size 0 was a little snug and the length was just a tad long, but was the best option of the two.

Gorgeous color. Fit like a glove

Beautiful dress! RTR made the process SO EASY. Got compliments all night. Normally I'm a 12 but I got the 14 just incase. 14 fit better around my hips but was way too loose around my bust (big girl super small boobs) so I went with the 12. I felt comfortable all night with some spanx! The material has some give to it also which helps ;) I wore 2 inch heels and the length was good. If you're tall and going to wear big heels I'd go with the long

Customer service was great. Return was super easy

Fit was great. I do wish I had gone with a 0P instead of 0R. I'm 5'4 and wore 3.5 inch heels. The dress dragged a little on the ground. Luckily I ordered the fashion temporary hem tape so I was able to tape up the bottom by about an inch or so

The color and cut was amazing!

This dress runs true to size and is meant to hug your curves. I got a lot of compliments on it and was happy with the dress overall. With someone as tall as I am, it does run short so I suggest getting a long when possible. Overall, I would recommend this to a friend.

Perfect color!

I absolutely loved this dress! It was great quality. It was actually nice and thick, but not hot at all and I was in Florida. The color was amazing on and it was so slimming. Everyone asked where I got my dress. The whole process was super easy and made my night better because I felt comfortable and confident. The only con would be I am very chesty so I needed the 12p and used double sided fashion tape to keep it down on the sides.

LOVED this dress. Was my first RTR experience. I'm 5'6 and ~125 lbs and the 2 was perfect. Was able to wear a strapless bra and spanx and was super comfortable all night. The dress is a beautiful color and such a great silhouette. Received so many compliments.
