Bachelorette party!!

I rented this dress for a friends bachelorette party. First off love the fit of the bottom half of the dress. I am very curvy and this highlighted my shape in a positive way! I also have a little bit of a tummy and the material did a great job of hiding that! The sequins were amazing!!! I was not itchy it did not bother me! My only negative is the top half. I am extremely busty but have small shoulders so the top did not fit my correctly. I had to use a ton of tape to keep the top in it's correct position. Other than that awesome dress and I got a ton of compliments!

Dress was very comfortable and flattering.

I was 6.5 months pregnant and this made a great maternity dress. I am normally a size 8 and ordered this in a size 10. It was a bit tight in the back (required help zipping it up) but otherwise fit well. Also, if you have a large bust, be warned there is VERY little coverage in the chest and people can see straight between your boobs. I made the mistake of wearing a flesh-colored bra instead of a black one, and it was visible on my chest all night.

Beautiful dress!

I ordered a size small (4, I’m normally a 6) after reading the reviews & wish I hadn’t. It was too tight to wear. :/ It was very pretty & love the all over sparkle, but it truly does run true to size.

Vegas night out!

I rented this for a night out in Vegas. I received so many compliments and felt so sexy. Definitely need a plunge bra or those stick on things (that's what I used - no issues) and the fabric at the waist and stomach is so forgiving there's no need to wear spanks!

Holiday parties are made for sequins!

I work in a very casual office, and this was the PERFECT antidote to "biz casual" for the holiday party -- LOTS of sparkle. The fit was perfect, and the dress was exceptionally flattering. The sequins were not that scratchy. The zipper was a real pain, but I was able to shimmy in and out without undoing it.

The smaller size fit better but the shoulders were too long for my height.

Too small to wear

I found that the dress was one the small size. Unfortunately it was too small to wear, which was a bummer because it was super cute in person. I'd recommend sizing up.

Good fit, easy dress, met my needs

I wore this to the 2018 Indy 500 driver's banquet. Was too sparkly for me, so I added a long blazer. Was comfy, classic. I had room, could have worn the size 4.... but overall the dress worked out great!

Not third trimester friendly unless you have a really small bump

Rented a 6 and 8, has to get a 10 overnighted to me and it barely zipped but the 12 was too big in the busy. I usually am a 4-6 and was 31 weeks pregnant. I should have known better to size up a lot! Was very short and too tight around rib cage.

Fit is great! So many compliments and super comfortable. The zipper can be a bit of trouble, I almost thought it wouldn't work but my sweet guy helped out. Definitely need an extra hand with it.

Pretty style, but chest is gaping!

I loved the style of this dress but even with a c-cup the chest couldn't be filled! I had to use a safety pin to keep it closed... I don't mind cleavage, but this was crazy loose. Other than that it fit nicely in waist and hips. Nice length.

Comfy to wear, hides imperfections but the gathered material in front makes hips appear wider.

I wore a regular black bra with it. The dress showed cleavage and was sexy. The material gathered in front does not show body imperfections but does make you look fuller than normal. I already have wide hips and it made me look a little wider than I would have liked. It was very comfortable and I could eat what I wanted without worrying about sucking in my stomach the whole time.

So many compliments

So, the first 3 dresses I received for me very poorly. I called RTR and they sent me 3 new dresses with delivery the next day. WONDERFUL CUSTOMER SERVICE!! Of the new dresses, I wore this to a live auction and received so many compliments! It fit well everywhere but was a bit loose in the shoulders and chest (and I have NO problem in that area). I could move around well and the dress was very comfortable. This was my first experience with RTR and it didn't disappoint!!

Loved the fit!

This dress runs true to size. I absolutely loved how it looked; it was very flattering on my midsection, which is my least favorite area of my body. I ended up wearing the other dress I ordered only because I liked the gold pop of color it had as opposed to this all black. I would rent this dress again.

1920's gala !

This dress was great! It runs large in the chest and I def had to pin it to be comfortable all night. I received a lot of compliments all night. I highly recommend this dress with the understanding that you will have to work with the top. It complimented my curvy shape!

I rented this dress in navy for another occasion and I decided to try black this time. It fit perfectly and was very comfortable. I danced all night and didn't have to readjust the dress at all. Lots of compliments!

Fun and comfortable dress was great for a night out in Vegas!

I rented this for a bachelorette party in Las Vegas. I had previous rented a very similar dress by the same designer in champagne, and just like before it was very comfortable but sparkly and fun.

Too tight on bust

Beautiful dress but too small for me on the bust. Didn't have time to rent size up to see if that could work better. But this one wouldn't zip up past my mid back so I didn't end up wearing

Runs small!

I'm usually an 8, and I ordered this dress as an alternative for an opening night party... I couldn't even get this halfway zipped. I also thought the fabric of the straps was awkwardly "tall," as in once the straps were on my shoulders I kept wanting to press them flatter? I don't know how to really describe it, I've never experienced that before. I'm sure this could have been a cute party dress, but wasn't even an option due to sizing issues.

My event was awesome but the dress was not. Unfortunately, it was too small in the bust.

The dress was a good fit in the waist/hips but it was too small in the bust. I am a size 14 in pants and usually an L or XL for tops. I can get away with a 14W or 16 or 16W usually in most dresses. This dress was far too tight around the bust (I am a 38DDD) but cut very low and loose in the shoulder straps. I might not try this designer again due to the odd sizing.

Beautiful yet comfortable!

This is my first rental with rtr and I was pretty nervous but I was so happy with the overall look. I usually fluctuate between a 6 and a 4 and for this dress I wore the size 4. I fit in perfectly at the event I went to. Will definitely do this again.

Stylin' at the Symphony

I may have been overdressed for an afternoon symphony (hey, a girl likes to be fancy sometimes) but this dress was BANGIN'. Unfortunately, I had to pin it to high heavens. What's weird is that while it was a little tight for me in the hips and stomach, my bust was spilling out all over the place - and that almost never happens! I have a pretty ample bosom. I'm soooort of uncomfortable showing off the girls, especially at family affairs. So when I discovered that this dress was falling down all over the place and I didn't really have a plan B lined up in time I had to run to the store and get some good old-fashioned safety pins to hold this baby in place. I also didn't know whether to put "runs small", "true to size," or "runs large" because it's all over the place! Apart from the sizing issue it really is a beautiful and comfortable dress. And I wouldn't recommend wearing this at an event longer than 4 hours or so, the sequins get a little annoying after awhile.

SO MUCH FUN to wear this dress. It's a little shorter than I typically end up with, but it was all good. At the wearing, I felt like I really stood out (Vegas-themed birthday party). Funny that I've seen it on a bunch of other folks since then! It's the first dress I've ever worn that was full-on sequin, so it took a little getting used to sequins in sensitive areas (underarm), but it was a great dress overall.

Family member's Moulin Rouge 50th birthday party

Ordered the same dress in two colors (black and white) in size 18 and 20. The white dresses appeared altered because neither fit. The black in size 18 fit but was too short for my liking, therefore I chose the larger size because of the length although it was too large in the breast area. I pinned it so my bra would not show. Overall I loved the dress and happy I was able to order numerous options because I would not had a dress to wear.

Cute date night dress!

I have worm this dress in two colors, and short and long-- so obviously I liked it. However, I do find the fit to be pretty awkward but the dress is so pretty I dealt with it twice. The bust is very large and the waist sits funny, i wish it was nipped at the waist, rather it is super tight high on my ribcage and then still gapes at the bust (I am fairly busty and still had to safety pin the front closed both times). I feel like this dress makes me look bigger than I am, which is unfortunate, but it is a gorgeous dress.

Perfect for when you need a little sparkle!

Super fun dress! I normally wear a 10 in dresses. This dress runs big and I would have preferred the 8. Unfortunately, my order didn't come with a back up dress option. The 10 looked great but I would have liked it to be more fitted. The top had to be pinned because it was loose but that wasn't a big deal. Overall, I received a ton of compliments and felt pretty all night!
