Pro:RTR was absolutely amazing! Con:The length for anyone short like me.

Size worn: 16WR
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
RTR was awesome when it came to helping with sizing. When my original dress did not fit (I have a very broad back) they over-nighted me this dress and I loved it! It was perfect for my first military ball. The only con was that it was way too long for me (But I'm only 5'1 so I am a little vertically challenged). The night went great though I just had to pick up the dress everywhere I went or anytime I stood up. Definitely using this site for next year's ball they were very helpful and everything went to smoothly there was no hassle which made it stress free!

Zipper was hard to get up half way through the dress due to a change in fabric.

Gala for my first film festival in which a film I directed was chosen.

Size worn: 18WL
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
The theme was 1920's and this dress was pure elegance with the right hair and accessories. I dont dress often and didnt want to buy a dress, RTR was the perfect solution. This dress wowed others and even myself. I have never felt so dead on! I am a normal size 16 but the 18L was a perfect fit and length as I am 5'9. I wore a 3 inch heel and was the perfect length.

O.M.F.G!!!!! You look like a MOVIE STAR!!! -quote from a friend when she saw me

Size worn: 16WL
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I ordered this dress for a work black tie dinner event. I am usually a 14 in most dresses but read that the suggested second size be a size larger. I emailed RTR about being able to order the 14 and also get the 16 as a back up size (as that is not an option in the website). The staff was quick to respond and really awesome to accommodate my request. And I'm thankful they did because the 14 fit but was snug around my waist. There would have been no room for my fancy dinner... I ordered the long because I wore 5 inch heels and the dress hit at a perfect length. It was difficult to walk up and down stairs because the dress is very flowy and long, just make sure you gather it all up so you don't step on it and trip. It feels like your a princess when you're wearing this dress! I wish I could keep it.

The zipper kept snagging on itself when being zipped and unzipped. That was the biggest problem. It may look a little small because my bust is out but it wasn't. I just got too much in the front to handle, 40D.

beauty of the dress trumped by the quality

Size worn: 22WL
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
the look of the dress was fantastic but the crappy zippers on both gowns left me disappointed. on the dress which was my size the zipper wouldn't budge at all. had to go the size up which was big on me and the zipper was a struggle as well. delivery of the gowns late on a Friday for an event on a Saturday left me with no options.

I was glad I ordered TWO sizes, the size I THOUGHT I wore, I didn't so I highly recommend taking advantage of that option just to ease your nerves. It was chilly so I added a scarf. But I loved the dress! It was elegant and very flattering!

Beautiful dress, horrible zipper

Size worn: 18WL
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I absolutely love this dress once I have it on. I just can't believe that an $800 dress has the worst zipper ever made. It sticks even when the dress is on the hanger. However, that doesn't take away from the fact that this is a beautiful dress. I had rented the pink version for a different event so I knew what I was getting myself in to when I rented this one. The dress is super comfortable and the top stays put nicely.

I normally wear an 18 so I ordered the 18 and the 20. Afterwards I read the stylist notes saying to size up and then size up again for your second dress. I was able to get in the 20 and it looked great, but I would've been WAY more comfortable in the 22

the fit was true to size. however, the bust was not as fitted as the waist. it wasn't too bad. A con was that it is a little heavy because of the material underneath. It did not stop me from dancing.

I'm normally a size 18, this dress DOES run small. The zipper also has a tendency to stick in the middle, so I couldn't zip or unzip it alone. I'm 5'6, and the dress barely dragged the floor in flats (switched to flats during night), but was perfect for a 3 inch heel.

Amazing dress for a Vegas wedding!

Overall fit: Small

Beautiful dress! I rented it from the store in the Cosmopolitan for my wedding day. I tried on many dresses but the red color of this is gorgeous! Cons: It was very hard to zipper where the fabric is banded - I had 2 people helping me. Also, it was very long even though I had the regular length.

Gorgeous Dress!

Size worn: 16L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
My boyfriend was the one who picked the dress out. I'm a very solid size 14, but read the comments about it running a little small, so I ordered up to a 16. I chose the Long version because I'm 5'7" and I planned on wearing heels. So glad I did, it was the perfect length with heels on. I wish I had a little bit more room in the bust, but it wasn't terrible. I'm a 40DD and had amazing cleavage! The only negative comment I have is about the boning in the bodice. Depending on my sitting angle, it would stab me in the ribs. It was bad while driving in my car. Other than that, it was beautiful. I received compliments on the dress the entire evening.

I would have worn the dress but, it was simply too short with heels for my height. The fit was great and it was very comfortable. Similar to other reviews, the zipper sticks a lot, so beware.

The fit was tight in the ribcage so I had to size up by 2 sizes. The length was perfect and I was comfortable dancing the night away! It is rare to be able to do that in a strapless dress; I was so thrilled I didn't have to keep hiking it up!

Unfortunately the dress was too large as I had lost more weight than anticipated. The gown was gorgeous and perfect in every way. RTR was great with the fit guarantee - followed return instructions and received credit for my next rental. I will definitely rent again!
