Great for a fancy event!
Received a lot of nice compliments on this dress. It's great for showing off your figure without revealing too much. Fit like a glove except in the bust area. Surprised b/c I'm a 36C and still needed to tape it down. The beads were chipped in places but I'm the only one who seemed to notice. The length was great but tended to ride up a bit and the fabric kept 'tucking' under itself. Otherwise was very pleased with the overall fit.

Subtle statement-making dress. Didn't upstage the bride but stood out amongst the guests
Gorgeous dress but the fabric was SO heavy. I wore a 6 which fit like a glove & the length hit right the the knee.

I wore this dress to a wedding and got a ton of compliments on it. The ruching hugged my curves and looked great on and the beading is very sparkly. The only thing that bothered me was that the sashes on the sides prevented me from lifting my arms while dancing.

I really liked this dress. I expected it to be a lot lighter than it actually was. It was a little longer on me since I'm short, but overall it was wonderful to wear it. BM has a wonderful collection.

This is a pretty dress but it is a lot of dress. Very heavy and I wouldn't want to wear it in hot weather. It is very tight through bust and rib cage but fine through the hips. It was too long for me so I didn't wear it--it needs to be worn by someone tall with a small rib cage.

The pictures do not do this dress justice... the dress looks a little bit big and bulky on the model but I can assure you that is not the case. I rented it for a very high society wedding in the fall. The length and neckline keep the dress classy while at the same time the snug-as-a-glove fit and dropped shoulders are super sexy. The neck line beading is surprisingly beautiful and appreciated. The dress is a heavier material which makes it great for cool weather. I can not recommend this dress enough.

Great LBD
I wore this to a black tie optional wedding and it was perfect! I got several compliments on it. My back-up size of 6 was not available. The 4 was tight, but with the ruching it didn't look too tight.

Tummy tucker
I loved this dress. It hid a multitude of sins especially tucking in my tummy. I felt comfortable in it and got many compliments on it too.

Loves Your Curves
This dress is wonderful for highlighting shoulders and complimenting curves. It's comfortable and runs true to size. I received many positive comments and one woman, who is always beautifully dressed, told my husband I looked stunning. What could be better? Deciding what to wear for special events used to be depressing and time consuming (not to mention pricey). Not any more!

knowing I had a top notch dress for a night on the town made me feel so comfortable, like I belonged there. The best compliment was my husband saying he wished he could come with us so he could keep looking at me in that dress...
I rented this dress for my sister in law's bachelorette in NYC. I ordered the 10 and 12, the 10 wouldn't get over my hips, but the 12 went on with ease. I was never uncomfortable, and made me look smooth and curvy. fabulous. The only drawback is that the 12 was a little long at the knee and in the beaded shoulder straps, which slid down all night. but it looked fine! this picture is me with the Bride, in her RTR dress, too!

This dress was perfect for a VIP meet and greet event I attended. The length was appropriate and the neckline and beading gave it just enough to stand out without it being over the top. Perfect cocktail dress!

Pretty dress, but...
...although I think this dress is very pretty, I felt like it was a little mature for me (I'm 27). It fit well, and it's a very heavy material so I would not recommend for summer or any place warm.

When I was told..."It looks like the dress was custom made for you".
Stunning, amazing, breath taking, HOT. Just a few of the adjectives use by my hubby and friends when they saw this dress! Rented for a New Years Eve Florida wedding, and was very comfortable in this dress even after dinner! The stretch in the dress helped with that :)

Nice...
I needed a dress last minute to wear to a black-tie optional event for work, and it worked out well, I felt like I was dressed appropriately even though I did not want to wear a long gown. This dress feels very heavy and adds a bit of "thickness" to the body, however the ruching somewhat offsets that because the ruching itself is flattering. Overall this dress is OK for the right occassion.

So flattering! It's a really pretty dress. Like others said, it's quite a heavy material, but was perfect for December in a cold climate.

The dress fit beautifully and comfortably. Loved the elegance of the dress.
Snug, but flexible fit, the folds hold in your body shape for a nice forgiving fit. Detailing along neckline is pretty enough to skip a necklace. Detailing is more pearls and beads with pink and multicolor- tones then rhinestones, but lots of sparkle. bottom of the dress was a little tight, and you could not take big strides (but who does in a dress?!)

Body con style without needing to be totally conscious of your body. The ruching of the fabric allowed the dress to hug in all the right places leaving me feeling beautiful at my friend's wedding.

Makes you look HOT
So I like to show off what my mama gave me like any girl, but I do have some trouble spots I get self-conscious about, The magic of this dress is the material: there is very little stretch (so you may want to size up?) but the lack of stretch and the thickness of the material make it so it skims your body in the right places and pulls in the trouble areas. For me that meant it held my tummy in and gave me a slimmer silhouette while showcasing my butt and chest in a way that was hot but classy ;) This is easily my favorite of the 6-7 or so dresses I have rented from RTR and would recommend to any girl of any size or shape--it will flatter!

Great dress- but too heavy.
I thought this dress was quite nice, but was just too heavy. It was a bit of a pain too get into and just didn't feel right for a summertime outdoor formal affair..

I felt gorgeous!
I wore this to my husbands company Christmas Party in New Orleans. It fit like a glove. WIth a spanx you couldn't tell I had a bit of a holiday weight gain! I got so many compliments I couldn't keep track! For some reason the picture won't upload, but I'll try again!

I received so many compliments on this dress!
The fit was sung, but perfect with a pair of Spanx. There was no way I was going to fit into the 10. I love how the fabric really conceals any trouble spots, which made me feel even more confident. I really hated to send this dress back because I loved it so much. This was a great first RTR experience for me and I will definitely rent again.

Fit Perfect
This is a gorgeous fitting dress. The material has a puckering/scrunching effect which adds a classy touch. The beading & crystal detail in the pictures doesn't do it justice. Gorgeous Stunning dress.

Eye catcher !!!
This is a beautiful and super comfortable dress! The bust was to tight to zip on the 4 so I went with the 6. It was a little longer than expected but made me still feel like a princess!

Wonderful dress! Fit my curves perfectly and I didn't need Spanx!
Very comfortable and flattering dress. Received loads of compliments and best of all I could wear a regular bra and didn't need spanx - the dress holds you in beautifully. A bit tight in the bust but then most things are for me so that wasn't a surprise. I would guess this dress looks great on most!

I was so happy to see the dress when I pulled it out of the box...it was perfect for the event I was to attend (a black tie optional fundraiser)! BUT sadly, I could not get the dress to zip over my ample bust. The dress is true to size everywhere but does run tight in the bust. So just know that when ordering. I was unable to wear it. Darn! Super cute!

This dress was truly great. It fit well, while allowing me to enjoy my dinner since the ripples hid that after dinner belly. The sleeves did make it hard to dance, but I would not let that deter you from renting the dress.

Sophisticated
I wore this dress to a formal affair and loved the dress, although the fit wasn't perfect on me. I had to wear the 4 as my ribcage/chest wouldn't fit in the smaller size (I often have this issue - my hips are small, but my ribcage is not :)), so the straps were too big and as I was going straight from work and ordered at the last minute, they kind of flopped around on me all night. Otherwise, I thought the dress was beautiful and think it's great for a formal affair.

I LOVED this dress!
This dress was extremely comfortable. It was true to size. I received a ton of compliments on it. I did need hem tape because the length was long on my 5 foot frame. I wore a total body spanx under it for comfort and it was perfect. I actually could have stayed in it for hours and been happy.
