True to size, very elegant and perfect for formal events. It is not forgiving so be careful with the full course meals.

A showstopper
I rented this for a black tie wedding when my original dress wasn't available. When I ordered it, I was worried it wasn't going to fit my chest since I am very small busted. But the built in bra gave me extra padding and it fit perfectly. You can easily move the straps to wear the dress off the shoulder or more on the shoulder like I did. The 2L was long enough for me to wear with 3" heels. I hope I have another formal event so I can order this dress again!

GREAT dress!
I wore this dress 6.5 months pregnant to a black tie wedding. It is so hard to find the right clothes that are both comfortable and flattering while pregnant, and this dress was perfect! Pros: Flattering material, good amount of stretch for baby bump, nice shade of red Cons: The top part rolled down a bit and the sleeves were just slightly stretched out. However I rented another dress from RTR that the sleeves were very tight so I preferred this. It was also a little too long for my short height, but I think with 4 inch heels it would have been a more suitable length.

Loved it!
First time renting and it won't be the last! Felt very comfortable in this and loved the stretch it had! Wore it to a Firefighters ball and thought the color was so appropriate;) Super comfy thru the whole night dancing. I still wore a strapless bra since I need all the help I can get, but the dress stays in place so well there was never any tugging or pulling up. It also has a stretchy almost "spanx" like layer that makes you feel very covered and smooth. Received so many compliments and hated to have the night end! Hubby LOVED it too!

This is just a magical dress. Old Hollywood meets Princess. It's perfection.
Almost everything about this dress was pros. I am regularly a 6 but I read that it ran small so I got a 6 and an 8. They both fit, the 6 was a bit snug but it just looked better one, you could tell the 8 was a bit big. The length was also perfect. No bra needed, one of my main requirements. There were 2 cons about this dress: 1. The corset on the side did get a little irritating but nothing I wasn't prepared for. Definitely wasn't a stabbing pain or anything, just a bit uncomfortable at times. 2. Someone else rented the same dress! The dress was just so perfect for the wedding that someone else got it too. But in all seriousness, don't hesitate. This dress is as wonderful as all the reviews make it seem.

Classic & Gorgeous
This dress was absolutely stunning! Since it was my first time using RTR, I was nervous about sizing/fit. I tried on the 0 first and it fit like a glove. The top is a little malleable so you can adjust it to show more or less boob if you want. Unfortunately, the 0P was unavailable, and the 0R was a bit long—I'm 5'2. I wore 4" heels and in the photo you can see the extra length. Thankfully, this wasn't much of an issue as I just picked up the dress while walking and dancing... and we danced A LOT. The dress is super sturdy and has two linings. The middle lining is almost like a spanx material, so it really smooths you out. Just be mindful when using the restroom—you will basically need to lift the top layer of the dress in order to adjust the middle. Overall, this dress was stunning and received compliments all night. I would definitely rent this again and recommend it for a Black Tie wedding, gala, or classy formal event!

This dress was KILLER
Material is amazing and so high end. Fit was true to size. Love that there was an option for long (I'm 5'9) and the long length was perfect with heels (I usually have the most trouble finding a dress long enough that I can wear heels!). I did need to get a strapless bra that had sticky sides to really make the top of the dress stay where it needed to and tighten up. Everyone LOVED this dress and I felt like pretty woman!

Standout sweetheart neckline!
Beautiful and bold dress for a black tie wedding. Received so many compliments! Absolutely loved the fit, but the color was a deeper red vs brighter red and the fabric was a little thicker than expected. Great news is the dress didn't show sweat.

This dress was so gorgeous and very comfortable. I received so many compliments on the dress and I was sad to have to return it because I wanted to keep it! I choose the Regular because I knew I was going to wear heels with it. The fabric is heavy so it helped keep me warm for a cold windy sf day. Definitely will rent this one again!

Gorgeous dress for engagement photo shoot!
I ordered this dress as a second alternative to my order, but I loved it so wore it as my main dress for my engagement photoshoot. I'm very conscious about my arms so this off shoulder design is perfect to hide areas that I cared about and is very flattering. The material is very elastic with a bit of bounce so it will fit your curves and extremely comfortable to wear. The area around the legs can be a little tight to walk around so you would be lifting the dress a little bit, but for a photoshoot where you would walk and stand in an area, it would be okay. I read the reviews and people warn about the length being too long and I ordered the 2P and it fit me perfectly for my 5'1 height. It still leaves a little bit of room for heals so really great length for a short person like me. I took my photoshoot at Sutro Baths in San Francisco, and the red was so beautiful as it popped against the beautiful blue and grey hues. Definitely would recommend this very elegant dress for your engagement photoshoot.

Was a wonderful dress for a black tie optional wedding! Received many compliments.
The ribbing was nice and made it so I did not need to wear a bra. The double lining is great for quality of the dress but I did need to keep fixing it so there was no bunching. The 6R length was great for me I only had to wear about 1.5-2 inches heels for it to graze the floor (I am 5'5).

SHOW STOPPER
First off. This dress wasn't my first choice but I am so happy the other two were rented. This dress fit me like a glove. I am 5'3-147lbs and I wore a 6R with heels this was the perfect fit. I am very curvy, big bottom, smaller chest. I was able to wear a nice push up bra with the dress. I can not even count the amount of compliments I received. Even days later people stopped me to tell me how beautiful I looked in the dress. I felt amazing. If I could buy this dress and wear it again I would. It made such a statement that I could never wear it again. This dress is literally everything!!!

This dress was incredible and I felt like a million bucks. I will say I wish I hadn't gone with the 8L (longer versus regular!) because it was quite long! But for great otherwise and the dress was perfect!

Great fit, I am traditionally an 8P . Lots of compliments on the dress. Very figure flattering. Regular wasn't too long like it thought it would be. I now know I can wear a regular as well as petite. Loved the jewelry you recommended as well.

This dress is truly stunning!
So much so that you should be prepared to receive double takes! The dress fit me true to size. It is made from a heavy material so it feels secure and well made. There is a spandex layer from your bust to your knees so it should not require any sort of shape wear. I loved it and I think you will too.

Rent this dress if you want to feel stylish and look great.
I loved this dress. I've tried RTR a few times and have never ended up wearing a dress I've ordered, until this dress. The color is beautiful (darker in person than on the website) and the neck line is both timeless and on trend. I am a little shy of 5'5" and with standard 3 inch heels the dress was maybe an inch too long but it wasn't a problem. The dress is very form fitting and great if you have curves like I do. My only complaints are that the dress material is very thick and heavy, which wasn't ideal for the June heat. And the dress looked like it had been worn and dry cleaned 1000 times, which it probably has. On the hanger, this dress looked like it was nearing the end of it's wearable life, but when worn it looked just fine. I do recommend sizing up larger than you usually wear.

Very Figure Flattering
I wore this to a Junior League formal event. I didn't have to wear a bra with it. It has "space" for your boobs. It has wire or something there, which doesn't sound comfortable but it is. I didn't wear spanx and still felt beautiful. Comfortable enough to dance in. The long looked great with heels. Would rent again.

This dress made me feel amazing!
I rented this for my anniversary dinner and I absolutely loved this dress! It is very comfortable and I didn't need a bra with it. I am 5'7" and wore heels that were about 3 inches and the dress was perfect length in the back but the front brushed the ground a little; it was not enough to bother me though. I got so many compliments on this dress. I love the neckline and the red color was amazing!

Simply beautiful red dress
A simply gorgeous red dress worn to black-tie wedding. I am normally a size 4, but at nearly 6 months pregnant and at 5'1 I ordered a 6P, wore 4 in heels and the dress didn't drag at all. It fit perfectly. The off-shoulder straps were designed to hide my insecure, flabby arms while the sweetheart neckline gave a classic touch. Beautifully designed dress. Cannot rave enough about it!!

Classy and effortless
I wore this to prom and loved it! The thick material shaped really well on my body. The top would occasionally slip a little while I was dancing and I couldn't lift my arms up very high, but it'd rent it again in a heartbeat. My favorite dress so far!

Julia Roberts Realness
This dress was absolutely gorgeous. Super flattering for an hour glass figure. Slightly stretchy, very comfortable. I wore it to a black tie fundraiser Gala. I loved standing out in a sea of black dresses. I'm 5'8" and probably should have worn the regular length, but it wasn't available when I placed my order. The Long worked, but it was touching the ground.

Gorgeous, classy, and a built in bra!
This was my back up size but I preferred the the body skimming fit. the regular length fit my 5'6" frame and 3 inch heals going all the way to the floor. The fabric is thick with some stretch and the bodice stays up, unlike strapless styles. There was never any tugging or adjusting. Gorgeous, expensive looking, well fitting, flattering, comfortable, and supportive of a larger chest. Love this dress!

Show stopper!
Rented this dress for my boyfriend's work gala and it was a total showstopper! I've never received so many compliments. The sweetheart/ off-the-shoulder neckline was my favorite feature, and a side swept hairstyle was a great way to show that off while also playing up my collar bones. Tall ladies- the dress was a great length too. I'm 5'10" and was still able to wear 3" heels with the 4L gown and have the dress gently skim the floor. I did not want to take the dress off at the end of the night. Wish I could wear it again!

The neckline was gorgeous!
This dress is super comfortable and travels great! I drove from VA to MI for a wedding and just needed a quick steam when I got to our hotel. If you are over 5'6" or taller I definitely recommend renting your size in a LONG. As you can see from my pictures the dress is the perfect length and I only wore 3" or 2.75" heels. I got a ton of compliments and was perfect for an October wedding!

Show stopper!
I absolutely LOVED this dress, felt very elegant at the New Years Eve black-tie optional wedding I wore it to, without being too over dressed. Received so many compliments! I was most worried that I would have to wear spanx so that my belly button didn’t show, but the dress is lined with a snug slip, which perfectly kept my belly button hidden and the dress wrinkle free! Overall – 100% would rent it. (PS: Not the best photo of the dress.)

I loved this dress! It was perfect for my Casino-themed formal. It was comfortable for most of the night until I started to feel the wires in the top/chest area begin to poke me. Besides the poking, it was amazing!!!
