Beautiful!

The fabric and deep purple color of this dress were amazing! The fit was true to size and I liked the shoulder detail. Comfortable and classic!

The dresses came the day they were expected and so easy to return!

This dress is so beautiful in person, even better than the picture. It hugs all the curves, but doesn't show the "unwanted" ones. It is true to size and the length with 4" heels couldn't have been better. Touched the ground, but I could walk without needing to pick it up(a first for me)

Pretty Jewel Tone Purple, Good Coverage both front and back

This was one of 2 choices sent as replacements for dress which did not fit. The color is rich with pretty sequin details on the shoulders. I liked that it is lined, you can wear a normal bra and it is modest. Me husband really liked the other dress on me but this one would have been beautiful, comfortable snd elegant for our black tie work party.

Good fit, stylish but not flashy.

This was for a formal banquet, the focus was Alzheimers and we were all in purple. This was comfortable, easy to move in and appropriate. The details on the shoulders added interest.

First time renting, Beautiful color

So this was not the right dress for me but it is gorgeous. I rented for a black tie gala. The dress was a little long but manageable. It looked great on me from the front and back but I have a broad back and full bust, so it was not flattering to my body from the side view, so I wore my backup dress.

My First time renting

I rented this dress for my prom I like the dress but maybe it was too formal for prom but it was nice. It was hard to get off but prom was a success. The dress ran smaller than dresses from Macy's or some where like that. Cause I usually wear a 16 or 14

Beautiful color and details!

Sorry for the not great photo - I didn't end up wearing this for my event but wanted to review it still as I really appreciated reviews with photos when making my selection! It was a bit more fitted than I like for my large hips and cushy belly. Would have worked with some shape wear. The shoulder detail was beautiful, but I have wide swimmer shoulders and it made me feel kind of like a linebacker. Would be best for someone with a straighter silhouette and maybe narrower shoulders. I am a pretty standard Sz 20, and the 22 was fitted (not too tight, just very fitted).

Beautiful beading

This dress is true to size. It fit comfortably and was easy to sit in. My only regret is not ordering the 2L to wear. I'm 5'5" and the dress just barely touched the floor. Luckily, I had some flats to wear. I'd recommend the long for anyone 5'4" and taller who want to wear a heel with it. I loved the color!

Saving this one for another event

This came as a back up courtesy of RTR's amazing customer service. I didn't wear it, but I will. It's a brilliant true purple color. Pretty simple sheath - would definitely need a shaper. It will definitely turn heads. Filing it away for the future!

So many compliments! Such a comfortable gown, perfect for a winter wedding!

I initially ordered the 6R and 8R because that's my general size renting/wearing normal clothes. Both fit length wise but were too tight for comfort. This gown ran like a wedding dress. I then ordered 10R & 12R- this was the 10! Length was perfect with heels, sleeves hung just right! I danced, sat for the ceremony and through dinner... so comfortable the entire time!! I received numerous compliments on this dress, wish I could wear it again!!

I got A LOT of compliments from all night. It was beautiful and complimented my skin tone.

This dress fit true to size. It was a little too loose around the armpit/breast area for my liking, but over all it was a great pick!

I received lots of compliments on this dress! It was very comfortable and I felt great in it. I should have gotten a smaller size because it ran a little large.

Pretty color with not a great fit

I really wanted to like this dress but it cut a bit low under the armpit area and so I had that awkward spillage on the sides.

Glamorous but modest

I wore this gorgeous gown to an industry formal banquet. I try to be very modest about sleeveless/ low cut/ low back to my company events. This dress made me feel so glamorous and sexy without showing off skin. It was perfect for my event and probably my favorite dress I've ever worn! I received countless compliments. It did fit snug, and I would recommend Spanx for sure. But it was stretchy so you could move or even get out and dance.

Lots of compliments but needed the long!

I am usually a 10 or 12 so was pleasantly surprised when the 10 fit. Very classic look and received tons of compliments. I am 5'8" and the regular length was just a touch too short and I was self conscious of it all night but would rent it again in the longer size.

Beautiful Color!

This dress was a gorgeous jewel tone that would look good on anyone! I tried it on for a possible gown for a black tie wedding and it was gorgeous! I didn't end up wearing it though because it made me look a little matronly so I wanted a little more youthful look. The sleeves are very pretty and are just enough to make the dress really pop!

Perfection

This dress was perfection. The waist sits at the high waist so it accentuates the hip and waistline. The shoulders are attractive without being overpowering. It would've been just as suitable at a black tie event as it was at opening night of the ballet. It has good thick fabric so it hangs smartly and the ruffling st the bottom makes it easier to walk in. Slight train off the back was trod upon by unaware bystanders but it was perfect for my height in 110mm heels.

Everything you would expect based on pics

This dress is exactly as described and pictured. Unfortunately I could only get the 10L and I definitely could not pull that off even with my highest heels so I didn't wear it. Gorgeous color and nice fit.

Easy and hassle free

This dress was great (a beautiful royal purple color) and the whole RTR experience was easy. It arrived in time for me to try on. I got the 10 regular and the 10 petite. I was nervous bc they were out of the size 12 so I was hoping the 10 would fit. And it did perfectly! I did wear spanx with this dress just to give a smooth silhouette. The petite length was great too. I wore low 1" heels and was comfortable the whole night. Returning was easy too. Just switch the shipping labels and off to ups!

Perfect for chaperoning prom!

I rented this for prom since I was class sponsor and lead hostess for prom. I wanted to feel fancy and this dress was perfect! It was a tad big in the chest area but overall a great fit! The length was perfect, I'm 5'4'' and it hit right at the ground without shoes, added my wedges in and you could see them but it was ok because I wasn't tripping all night nor being stepped on. I could move comfortably and it was a beautiful color!

Simply elegant and so comfortable

I wore this to a gala and danced for hours. I was surprised I fit in the size 4. Normally I'm closer to a 6 or an 8, but the 4 worked for a last minute option. It's hard to see the beautiful detail on the shoulders, but it makes it that much more stunning. The other thing I was surprised about was how the waist of the dress hit mine. I have a very short torso and this can cause issues with dresses, but this worked perfectly. Definitely recommend getting this dress. I wanted to own this dress it was so beautiful and so comfortable.

I wore this to chaperone a prom.

This dress is very pretty and fit my modesty requirements for chaperoning a prom. It was awfully long for someone who cannot wear heals, so I would order it in a short size if that's available. I would definitely rent this dress again, but in a smaller and shorter size.

I had to use the one dress I received instead of having the option to choose from four. Not happy.

I will be honest, the dress I have received is beautiful however, I ordered 4 and now have to wear the one that may or may not have been my favorite. I was hoping to choose between the ones that I selected so that I could wear the one that I was in love with. Thankfully, the one dress I received is okay. Additionally, I am going to have to now request a refund because quite frankly I should not have to pay for the dresses I did not receive. I really feel as though I should get the dress I did receive for free plus a credit should I ever take the chance to order from here again. The customer service is terrible. I was on hold for an hour and no-one ever picked up. Fortunately, my credit card will likely allow me to reverse the charged since I did not receive the dresses. Not the best experience for me. UPDATE: After being on hold for an hour last night, I gave up. I called again this morning and did finally reach someone. The girl I spoke with was apologetic and for that I was grateful. However, the other dresses will arrive on Monday. The gala I am going to is tonight so that will be 2 days to late. I am being issued a refund plus a 25% coupon but quite honestly I feel as though they made a huge mistake and should do more than that. I ordered my dresses (3 of them) 3 weeks ago. Thank goodness, I added an additional one separately at a much higher cost a few days later and I did receive that one because other wise we would not be going to this event. Super frustrating. Not sure I would recommend them. The only reason I gave them one star is because I can't give zero. Again, the one dress that I received is beautiful and I am grateful I have that to wear but not the best experience I have had. UPDATE #2: I have been issued a coupon code for a free rental. I do feel as though this was a fair response. I do understand that stuff happens and am grateful that RTR did their best to rectify the situation. Thank you very much

WELL...I LIKE THE FABRIC...

This gown was comfortable for the first 30 minutes. At the end of the night, I was RUNNING back to my room to rip it off! As long as you size up at least one dress size, you will be okay. Also, don't have boobs.

This dress is simple and elegant -- absolutely gorgeous and perfect for a formal fundraiser.

My usual dress size is an 8R but I ended up wearing this dress in the 10R as I am curvy and this dress hugged my hips. That said, the 10R fit like it was made for me and did wonders for my curves. Stunning!
