This dress is FIRE!
Loved this dress - very appropriate for the military ball. I was able to wear my own regular bra with it, and it was very comfortable. The bottom flows beautifully, too! My only complaint is that the zipper was tricky, but that's not enough of a problem to not rent this gown. Also, I'm 5'10" and the long was perfect - I wore it with 4in heels and was totally fine. Would definitely rent this again!

Got so many compliments!
I'm 6 foot tall and 147 lbs, have a straight build and 5 months pregnant. This dress fit beautifully! It showed off my bump but the color really made it pretty. My two year old was with me at the wedding and it was very comfortable also for dancing with him and scooping him up off the floor.

It was the perfect dress to make you feel beautiful all night long.
I'm 6' tall and 175lbs. This dress was the perfect length and fit for my body type. I received compliments all night long even from strangers. The color is so vibrant and beautiful. I have broad shoulders so the 10 was a little tight but the 12 was a great fit.

Beautiful dress
The dress was super comfy and a very pretty, stand-out, candy apple red. The only reason I gave it four stars was because I didn't *love* the high neckline as much as I'd hoped but everything else was great!

This red dress caught the eye of everyone at my formal in the best way possible!
It's a super flattering fit, hid my stomach well, and is made of really breathable fabric. My only complaints were the sticky zipper and super duper tight waist band. But overall I felt amazing in this dress & highly highly recommend it!!

This dress was perfect for the formal event I wore it to. Gorgeous and so comfortable!
I fell in love with this dress! This was the first time using RTR and didn't disappoint. The dress fits true to size and was so elegant. It has amazing movement. An added bonus - I wore a regular bra. The only con is that the zipper stuck a bit.

It was a little tight getting it zipped, but once it was on, it was comfortable. The material was heavy, but that wasn't a big deal. I felt beautiful, and I loved this dress!

This dress was exactly what I was hoping for! I rented for the Marnie Corps Ball.
The dress fit perfectly! The neck of the dress was a little tight, but nothing uncomfortable. Dress was long enough to wear with high heels as well!

I got so many compliments on this dress! It was perfect for a black tie optional wedding.
I wore the 4P and it was a tad snug in the waist but I was able to eat, drink, and dance all night comfortably. The 6P would have been ideal, but a completely different dress showed up for my "backup" and it did not fit me well at all, so the 4P was the only option. The length was perfect: I wore 2-3 inch heels to the ceremony and switched to ballet flats for the reception and didn't have any problems tripping over extra fabric. I would definitely rent this one again!

Dress was perfect, I got so many compliments on it. Only thing that was a bit annoying was the zipper in the back. It wouldn’t zip up over the middle

Girls with Boobs -- get a size bigger
I am 5'2 and the dress was a little long but I actually liked the length. Normally, I wear a size 8 in women's jeans and 11 in junior jeans. Most of my dresses are a medium. I read every review and thought I would be okay but unfortunately by the end of the night my zipper in the back was down and I was half out of breath. The dress was a perfect fit but since my two friends (breast) were on the bigger side, the dress was so tight. Warning, if you are a bigger bust in the breast area -- GET A BIGGER SIZE. Also, my back up dress came with a huge mark on it as well. Thank God I didn't need it but still. If you order a dress make sure that you order it a day sooner than you will need it just in case of that issue!

This dress was perfect, loved the color!
This dress fit like a glove! Very true to size. I received so many compliments of this dress especially about the vibrant color. I typically do not wear red but this was a great color. The zipper is a bit tricky (as mentioned in previous reviews from other ladies) so make sure you have someone who can assist in zipping you up. I wore this with 3 inch heels and the length was perfect.

This dress moves beautifully!
I rented this two days before a gala event for work. It was a little tight in the chest, but I also have huge boobs. The length was great, I wore flats all night and didn't trip over myself (I'm 5'9). The color is a bit more red-orange than blood red, but I still felt beautiful! My first RTR rental, definitely pleased with the process of shipping and returning.

Everyone wore red to this event which really made an impact instead of the typical LBD!
Really liked wearing this dress! I am 5'5" and carry most of my weight in my stomach which wasn't a problem with this dress as it's slightly high waisted so the waist band came above my belly button for a flattering fit. The top portion was slightly big in the front (I am a 42C) yet wasn't an issue. The zip sticks due to the gathering at the waist band so you will need someone to help you zip up for sure. Also this dress is very long, I had on 3 1/3 heels and it just hit the floor. Overall, a great dress for my first RTR rental.

Great dress!
Loved this dress. I'm 5'6 and about 145 lbs and this dress fit perfectly. I was able to wear a regular bra with it so that was a plus as well. It was very comfortable. Flowed very nicely when I walked! I wore three inch heels and it came just above the floor. The color was beautiful.

FELT LIKE A PRINCESS
Material is gorgeous and high quality! Made me feel like a princess walking around in it. I wore comfy flats and no one could tell. Zipper was definitely difficult to get up but once I did - totally comfortable! Really just a stunning and high quality dress!!!! Received TONS of compliments. The 2R fit my body better but the 4R fit my chest better so I wore that.

Amazing!
This dress was incredible. It fit very well and was very flattering. The neckline made it look great with all manner of necklace. It is a bit long, but I had no problem with it dragging in my heels. One of my favorite rentals.

Color was perfect and I got compliments ALL night!
This dress is gorgeous! The red stood out in a crowd of black and I got so many compliments! I had to go a size up because the band around the waist is pretty tight but the overall look of the dress is very flattering. I'm about 5'8 and the long was perfect with heels. As said in other reviews (and a lot of dresses on this site), the zipper is a little tricky and gets stuck around the band. As long as you have someone to zip it up for you it should only take a few attempts.

Didn't fit
I was disappointed when I tried this style on and it didn't fit. Definitely runs small. There is no "give" to the dress at the waist where the band is.

This dress is SUCH a head turner!
Holy cow, this dress. THIS DRESS, Y'ALL. Simply amazing. I felt like royalty the second I looked in the mirror. The flower girls, whom I had never met before, even asked if I was a princess. My boyfriend's jaw LITERALLY dropped when he saw me. This dress! The waist fits right under the breasts, so no need for a bra. I actually loved where the waist hit because I have an athletic figure; the way the skirt fell from the waistline accentuated what little curve I have. I honestly don't know what dress size I am. I got the 8, thinking that would be fine. The waist was tight around my rib cage. The 10 fit perfectly. The fabric is THICK. Not great for outdoor weddings if the temperature gets above 80 or if you sweat easily. I am 5' 10", so I got the long. With 3-inch heels, it hit right at the floor. I was picking up the skirt to walk through grass. Very flowy -- perfect for spinning around on the dance floor! But be mindful that people don't step on your skirt. I didn't want to return this dress and I'm honestly just thinking about swiping my boyfriend's credit card to buy the darn thing. I give this a 12 out of 10.

I didn't have to worry about shopping endlessly for the right dress or the right accessory. It just came straight to my door. I felt confident and comfortable and it all was possible with just a click of a button. Thank you so much. I will definitely be using your services again as well as recommending you to others.

Very flattering cut, got lots of compliments, and the color is a true red.
Was great except in the ribcage and underbust area (was very tight, I had to size up and was still squeezed in). This was not designed with plus size women in mind, would recommend sizing up even 2 higher than normal to have a more comfortable fit.

Killer dress for our engagement photos! IN LOVE!
This was my first RTR experience and it could not have gone better. You definitely have a returning customer! I wore this dress for our engagement photos surrounded by the changing colors of the aspen trees. The dress popped in the surrounding environment and I could not be happier with the result. Just a couple of comments regarding the dress. It was a little hard to zip up, but that's to be expected with the style of the dress. Also, I'm 5'8" and rented the long dress as recommended. It was a bit long, even with heels, but ok. I wore flats most of the time so that I could walk so it was definitely too long for that. I would HIGHLY recommend this dress to anyone. The only thing I wish is that I would have been able to buy the dress after wearing it. It was absolutely stunning!

Perfect for a fancy night out!
This dress worked great! I am about 3.5 months postpartum, and I love that the fit on the waist and skirt didn't show too much of the post-baby pooch that remains. I fit into the 6R, but the top was very tight and in the end the 8R was just more comfortable. The zipper is super difficult to get over the waistband - my husband was very nervous that he would rip it. My mom end up helping and it was fine, just needed a little confidence. The color is gorgeous and I got tons of compliments!

Lovely color and suitable for a work gala. Petite length was too short for me!
I am 5'4" and I don't like to wear high heels so I rented the petite size based on other reviews. It ended up being about an inch too short - even for my shorter 2 inch heels. I wish I would have rented the regular length. Also, it is very tight in the bust. I already sized up to 6 over my regular 4 but it was a close call. Zipper is finicky (which seems to be the case for every dress.)

Engagement Photo Stunner!
Photos are cropped to include our photographer's watermark. I cannot say enough good things about this dress! I rented it for our engagement photo session and it did not disappoint. I'm 140 lbs and rented a 6R and sized up for my back-up dress. Thank goodness! The 8R fit like a glove. I'm also 36 DD so that is another reason the 6 was not happening. It's form fitting from the waist up around the chest. I'm 5'4 and the Regular was quite long but with 4 inch heels, it was manageable. I did have to carry it while walking though. The zipper did stick, as the other reviews state, but once it was up, we were good. It just took two people :). Additionally, the dress did have a "stale" smell but I Febreze'd it then steamed it about a hour later and that worked perfectly. I want to rent this dress again, in all the other colors. Highly recommend! Also - necklace is also RTR - Kendra Scott Dusted Harlow Necklace.
