Gorgeous, classy- hugs all the right places!

I am usually a 4L and went with the backup 6L because it is tight. It is definitely stretchy and forgiving, but would suggest sizing up. I got so many compliments on this gown. It is such a classy choice and the back gives it that extra sexiness it needs. Definitely would rent again

This dress was absolutely stunning! Glamorous, classy and beautiful.

It fit perfectly and showed off my curves without being too revealing. The open back was the perfect added detail. This dress was so comfortable for dancing too. Even though this was a long, it was just a little short so I couldn't wear heels.

Nice

Beautiful dress! Only problem I had was that I ordered a Long and it was shorter than the Regular. Also, my friend ordered the same size from stores and it was much longer and draped on the floor

I wore this to a New Year's Eve wedding. I looked great, most importantly I felt great.

I'm 5-8, 150lbs. Average build I ordered a size 8L and it was a little larger than I liked. I would have ordered a 6L if it were available. If you range between two sizes like myself, I would choose the smaller size.

A+ customer service!

What an amazing fit! I do think it ran a bit large (to give you an idea, I'm 5'4", 150lb and have very broad shoulders) and fit into the 6 with a little room - but, very flattering and wiggle room if you aren't sure on sizing. Would definitely snag again, it's stunning in personal

Gorgeous!

Wore this to the Alex's Lemonade Foundation, Lemon Ball which is a "yellow" tie formal event. This dress is a show stopper. I typically wear a 6 but could have worn a 4. The dress seemed to grow by the end of the night. Think I might have ordered a long also. (Especially if I sized down) but beautiful, standout dress. Got lots of compliments all night!!

I FELT LIKE A CELEBRITY!

Love love love this dress. Wore this to a college medical gala. Rented a 0R and 2R. Didn't even need to try on the 2 as the 0 had wiggle room in it as well. I'm 5'1 and have a curvy shape around my hips and legs that I am very insecure about. The dress completely hid it and made it look 100x better than I would have imagined. The length was perfect with 4inch heels and had a cute little train. Body con dresses and I never mix but this time, I am completely in awe. I don't want to return it!!! Definitely renting again from RTR.

Gorgeous in person

The dress is a beautiful true gold color. It sparkles in every angle of light. I wore this to a formal Mardi Gras ball & had manyyy complements on my gown. I ordered an 8L & 6L--normally I wear an 8 but it was stretchy so the 6 hugged every curve like a personally fitted gown. It was superb! I'm 10 inches smaller in my waist versus my hips/bust so I was shocked at how well it fit without pinning the sides. Due to the stretchy material I wold go a size down AND if you're 5'6" or taller get a LONG! I had to wear small 3 inch heel so my dress didn't look silly short on me. I'm 5'8" and if you're taller I would recommend grabbing a second option(different style dress) to make sure the long still isn't too short :)

Show Stopper!!

I'm 5'3 and 150 lbs. Usually I wear a size 8, but I was able to wear the 6 with room to spare in the waist & bust area. Even though I'm short the length of the dress was perfect with heels on.

Gorgeous dress! Felt like an Oscar winner

I wore this to a Mardi Gras ball and I got tons of compliments on it. Believe the reviews when they say it's short though, I wore the 8R because they didn't have the 8L available, and I ended up tugging it down even with flats on. The dress itself is gorgeous and the back is my favorite part. I have a very small chest so I went bra-less, but a plunge-back or backless would have worked. I did feel like it stretched out a bit by the end of the night. Overall, very happy with this gown and RTR!

I was a little hesitant about renting this dress, as a petite size was not available. I'm just barely 5'1, but I couldn't have asked for a more perfect length. That being said, if you're any taller than 5'4 or 5'5, I would suggest renting in a long size. Overall fit was slightly larger than I had anticipated. I normally am a size 6, but the 4 was perfect. So if you're between two sizes, the smaller size might be the way to go. Overall, the dress was beautiful (despite me seeing 4 others wearing it). Will definitely rent from RTR again!

Dress was stunning; received many compliments!!

I wore this to the Seabee Ball with my husband. I was 20 weeks (5months) pregnant and wasn't too tight at all! Fit like a dream and even wore a bra! The only downside was that even though I ordered it in Long; it was still too short AND I wore flats!! Pretty bummed about that, but from the ankles up it was nice!

I rented this for a bridesmaid dress and it was pretty dang close to perfect.

The dress hugs tight, but it not too unforgiving. Spanx help though. I'm short, so I was worried about the length, but with heels, the regular was fine. Overall, it's a winner! Gots tons of compliments all night!

Beautiful gown that demands attention!

I usually wear a 4 or 6 but those sizes weren't available. The 8 was not as form fitting but was still complimentary to my figure. The dress was a show shopper. You will get so many compliments!

Spectacular Prom Night

Loved the dress more than I thought I would. I rented it for my Senior prom and our theme was the Great Gatsby! A lot of people told me that my bread was beautiful and it sure made me feel beautiful too! I'm only 5'3 and ordered the 12L Bc other reviews said that the regular was a little short, so with 4 inch heels the L fit perfect!

This dress photographed SO well! I am so glad I ordered it for our engagement pictures!

Don't even hesitate... Get the LONG. Unless you're under 5'3 this dress will be too short in regular. I went shoeless for our Photoshoot and loved the way the long laid on the ground. I could have also worn heals and it would have been fine! I'm around 5'4-5'5. It has a tight fit around every part of your body from booty upward but still comfy when sitting or riding in the car! I ordered the 4R and 6L and both fit fine and similarly other than the length. My bust is a 34DDD and the chest area fit great in both the 4 and 6!

I never got to wear it. I ended up going with my back up dress from another company.

Overall the dress is beautiful. Unfortunately for me it was too short. I ordered a 10 long because I knew the 12 would have been too big. I thought it was because I was pregnant but I had one of my sisters (who is the same exact size and height 5' 7") and it was short on her as well. I really wanted to wear it for at least my maternity shoot but I couldn't wear that outside. It looked silly on me. It is okay though I purchased a back up just in case it wouldn't fit. Like I stated before the dress is beautiful. I should have taken a quick picture but I was getting ready for our maternity shoot. #babyshowerattire

Beautiful dress and totally comfortable.

Loved this dress and how it complimented my body type. I was worried it would be so tight and itchy but it wasn't! Runs a bit big though so order a size down if you want it to hug your body.

Endless compliments at my senior prom.

I loved everything about this dress! My favorite color is gold, so when I saw this dress on the website I knew it was for me. I wish I could have worn heels with the dress but it would end up being too short. The overall fit was perfect & I definitely stood out at my senior prom. I got endless compliments throughout the night, this dress truly made my prom memorable.

The only dress the bride wanted

So...here's the run down on this dress! If you are tall (over 5'5) you must get the long. The material is stretchy. I wore the 10L but am a 12. I rented a 10 & 14 because the 12 was sold out. The 14 was huge on me and showed no shape and I'm a curvy girl. I totally wore spanx and a regular bra (push-up that's all I wear). My hair covered my straps. I'm a DD so I need support at all cost! The long was still short in my opinion. The dress stopped at my ankles. I wore 4.5 heels. I also rented earrings which were amazing! This is my third RTR and I'm hooked. Shipping and delivery is accurate.

SO MANY COMPLIMENTS! I felt amazing.

It fit like a glove. You do need to wear shape wear if you have a tummy, and I have an amazing waist trainer that literally makes me a size smaller in my mid section. I got the 16L and I am 5'4". Was able to wear standard heels and the dress didn't drag. BUT my hips are big so it shortens the dress. I was complimented all night and felt so sexy, yet modest. GET THIS DRESS.

Can I ask what brand of waist trainer do you have? I'm looking to get one.

Classy, glamorous, show stopping dress!

I did not want to send this dress back! It was so perfect for our anniversary photo shoot! Cars driving by kept honking, and I know it was because of this glamorous dress! It was so comfortable, fit perfectly, and I could do anything I needed to in this dress (that's a huge plus!) I would buy this in a heartbeat! Very flattering for any body type. You will stand out in this dress! I will absolutely be renting this again when I can! Thank you RTR for an amazing first rental experience!

Photographs really well

I rented this for my maternity photo shoot and it looked amazing in every photo. The color and sequins photograph really well. Only drawback, I ordered the long but they sent the regular and even with flats it was too short and you could see the shoes in a lot of the photos (granted it was covering my 8 month pregnant bump but I'm 5'7") otherwise perfect

Bell of the Ball

I wore this dress to a scholarship gala and received rave reviews all night ! It hugs all of your curves. I'm a 34 D bra size and wore a strapless bra for support. The dress runs a little large so make sure to order a size or two down from your actual size. This dress does NOT disappoint. Worthy of its stars

I LOVED THIS DRESS

I wore it to the marine core ball. It was beautiful and everyone was complementing me all night asking where I got he dress from. It ran a bit big I wish there was a size in between 8 and 10 the 8 was too short and the 10 was too big but long enough. It didn't matter I still wore it. I did not wear a bra with it. But might want to wear your hair up so the sequins don't pull all your hair out! I loved it
