This dress is amazing!

Size worn: 0P
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress to a formal wedding. I got so many compliments the entire night. If you are on the short side, you will definitely need to wear high heels. I am 5'0" and wore 4" heels and I still had to hold it up to walk and dance. But that didn't bother me at all. The boning in the bust area is very sturdy so I didn't have to wear a bra. But it did dig a little under my arms. It wasn't a deal breaker, though. My stylist, Evan B was also very helpful! This is my second dress from RTR and I will definitely rent again!

Perfect Dress for Prom

Size worn: 8R
Rented for: Formal Affair
Rented this dress for my daughter for a prom. Fit perfectly. She has an hourglass shape , 5'4, and about 150 lbs. The cinched waist made her look like a supermodel . A tiny bit short with heels. Got the regular for her. Nothing to be worried about but if you are any taller consider the long.

Extremely comfy and stretchy. I wore this for my prom and it was absolutely perfect. It fit a little crookedly, but that was not very noticeable at all. It was a little heavy, but over all I loved the dress and the fit.

Perfect fit but the bustier digs into your skin a bit

Size worn: 10R
Rented for: Other
The fit was awesome with some stretch. I went up a size because the 8 was a little too tight and the 10 fit just right with a little more room. The bustier dug into my sides a little bit but nothing too painful. Overall it was an amazing dress and I felt so comfortable in it.

A beautiful gown that I would definitely wear again. I have a stronger frame than most but I loved how the dress hugged my body flowed. It was the perfect height but if I had worn higher heels it may not have looked as great. I definitely recommend renting this dress as it is easy to pair it will accentuating colors!

Size worn: 10R
Overall fit: True to Size

Very comfortable and flattering, the only con I have is that it was a bit uncomfortable around the bust. The interior metal pieces are quite rigid since it is strapless, and were almost poking through the fabric into my armpits.

I loved this process. It was so convenient, and EASY!

Size worn: 0R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I have a super small rib cage, so I run into issues with strapless dresses regardless. For some reason I am always going back for more :). I think this one was a little stretched as well. The length was perfect for a petite frame with a high heel. I also loved that this dress was versatile, you can put a lot of pieces with it to dress it up, or keep it elegant and simple if you'd like. The shipping process was a BREEZE. Oh, and customer service? EXCELLENT. They can't help you enough or be more kind. I will definitely be renting another dress. This process is genius. Just be sure to pay close attention to details about different body types and measurements to see what will work best for you, but hey they send you two sizes anyway...because they rock.

Comfortable gown

Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
This gown fit perfectly. It runs a bit on the large size as I am normally between a size 6 and an 8. The material has stretch. For a topless gown, it was very comfortable. I am a 36C, and the gown stayed put all night. I did wear a strapless bra for added support. I felt really elegant in this dress, and received compliments. The stylist who helped me via a phone call was right when she suggested this gown. Thanks for the great experience!

Stunning dress! Was better than I even expected!

Size worn: 6R
Rented for: Wedding
The dress was amazing. The only problem with the 6 was that the rubber lining around the top of the dress was 95% gone from the dress and the 4 fit and was perfect but a little too tight so I went with the 6. But for a strapless dress that material at the top of the dress is necessary for a good fit. The two pieces of double sided tape that came with the dress were helpful but I was still pulling up the dress all night but I received so many complements I felt like a million bucks!! Will definitely use RTR again!!

Classic beauty and sexy- everything you want in a little black dress

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The dress fit true to size. The gathered material and style made me feel every bit sexy and beautiful. I didn't have to worry about pulling it up all night like I usually do with strapless dresses. The only downfall are the darts that keep the shape in the bust area- when sitting they would dig into my ribs, and yet I wouldn't say it takes away from dress- just know so you can add padding before your night. I got so many compliments and felt amazing in this dress. I also rented the bracelets shown in promo photo and LoVeD them. Perfect for a formal event or wedding.

Comfortable and flattering

Size worn: 6L
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
I read all the reviews before ordering, and decided, at 5'5" and a 4-inch heel wearer, that I should get the 8L with the 6L as a back-up. As it turns out, I think I probably could have done with the R length. Even with the heels, the dress pooled a little at the ground (you can see this is the second picture). I also ended up going with my backup, smaller size, and even that was a bit loose around the waist. It was really flattering, but I think it would have been even more flattering had it been tighter. That being said, it was extremely comfortable and it received tons of compliments; I would definitely recommend it. I paired it with the Kenneth Jay Lane Gold Denari Necklace, which I thought might be too much with the beading detail on the top, but was completely perfect.

Simple yet very elegant, perfect for a black tie wedding event

Size worn: 6R
Rented for: Wedding
The dress was perfect for a black tie wedding event. I decided to wear size 6R as I noticed that around my bust area the size 8R was loose so I went with the smaller size since I like a tight fit on top. The dress is a bit short on the front, not sure if this is intentional by the designer however, I didn't mind it as the dress looked great. This was my first time renting a dress from RTR and won't be my last. I was very relieved to see that the dress holds true to it's size and definitely felt at ease knowing that I could rent an additional size for free.

Received so many compliments!

Size worn: 12L
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress is beautiful, but I wish I'd also been able to order another size. I spent most the night hiking this up around my boobs. My cleavage looked good, but I know it would have looked phenomenal in a 10. The length is stunningly perfect for a formal affair. I'm 5'10", wore 4.5 inch heels and still had a substantial train. This dress is a bit worn and the boning was killing me by the end of the night. I have the scars to prove it. Someone else there had on the same RTR and looked different bc we made so many different choices. All that aside though, I received so many compliments and it's fun how differently everyone can dress this up. I do wish there were a feature on RTR that made us register the event to avoid seeing the same dress. Overall, it's a very sexy dress.

Stunning!

Size worn: 0R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
So I actually never got a chance to get a picture in this beautiful dress that I rented. As it turns out, both my sister and I rented dresses from RTR for a friend’s wedding, and have used this service for while. We both love RTR and have never had any issues with size until now. At the very last minute, we had to switch dresses because hers did not fit her properly. Luckily, we both are around the same size, so it ended up working out great in the end for us, but it could have been a complete disaster had we not switched in the end. Be warned, while the Green Badgley Mischka that I ended up wearing is absolutely stunning ( I received so many complements throughout the night) and fit me like a glove, it has absolutely no stretch what so ever. I am normally a size 0-2 and I had to wear the 4R. (she rented a 2R and 4R) My sister on the other hand is 2-4, and could not fit in the Green dress at all, but fit perfectly into the 0R Black Badgley Mischka that I had rented. All and all it was an absolute success and we were each thrilled with our "new" dresses, but for those of you renting just make sure you read all the reviews and double check your sizes before renting. Both dresses are amazing and I would rent again in a heartbeat!

Fit perfectly, The Regular length was the only one available so it was a little short for my taste but was good with 1 inch heels. Get the L if you are taller and want higher heels.

I wore this dress to a navy ball and it was amazing! I loved the simplicity and elegance and it was perfect for the event. The only con was that the train is a little long so it got stepped on but other than that this dress was great. I'm 5'5" and wore 4 inch heels and the front length was perfect. I would highly recommend this dress

I would recommend this for curvy girls. Very flattering. Although, it runs large. It fit my lower-half wonderfully. It was sale little large on top and I am a true size two. If you're smaller than a size two, I wouldn't recommend this one. I would say I needed a size zero regular. I did find it very comfortable though!

I ordered the 2 &4 regular. The 2 r is what I wore and it fit like a glove! The length was at the top of my foot which was ok since the back has a mini train. I considered the long length and am glad I didn't or I would have been tripping all night!

Dancing is no issue in this dress!

Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I chose this dress mostly because it was simple...and my other dresses I wanted, weren't available. I usually NEVER wear strapless, but this was somewhat okay with a big necklace. This dress ran true to size, but I have dress wounds but the wire poking out from the bustier-like top into my sides. I wasn't going to wear this dress because of it, but the size 8 was too big, and also had the wire sticking out too. Such a bummer, as it made me feel a bit uncomfortable all night. The dress was in great shape, otherwise...but they need to patch up the inside where the wires are. Simple, nice dress good in a pinch. Won't rent this same one again, but will def try more from the website.

The essential go-to black dress - if you can't find anything else, this is always a sexy classic! Stretchy material for form fitting, but didn't look cheap at all. It does have a little bit of a train in the back so caution when walking. This was floor length with 4" heels. Super sexy but classy - loved it!

Overall fit: True to Size

I originally ordered a 4L and 6L but I think there was a glitch in the system because I only received the 6L. It was a little big for me but I wore 2 bras and tucked in the sides closer to the bras so it became tighter. The dress looked beautiful and elegant and I got tons of compliments. I do wish it was a 4 though because I had to lift up the dress many times throughout the night. Still beautiful though.

Fit ran slightly large. Normally I wear a 4 in this brand, but found it too large. The 2 fit perfectly. Best for bigger busts. The boning helps support the weight of the beaded neckline, and was comfortable. The small train was lovely. Perfect fit.

Elegant Sexy Black Dress

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this to a wedding reception and got a ton of compliments! It was a fabulous dress and is really nicely made and heavy. The zipper was a little tricky and would get stuck sometimes. This dress runs pretty true to size even though some people said it ran big, Also if you are a normal height, get the long. I rented a 0L and 2R and the length of the 0L was perfect but I couldn't fit so had to go with the 2R, wish I could have done 2L. No need for a bra, I have a big bust and the built-in bra was so thick that I didn't even need extra support and I never had a problem with having to pull it up. Great dress!

This dress fit perfectly. I am usually a size 6 and I am 5'10" so I went with the 6L. It was actually even a little long on me which I was happy about because usually dresses are short on me. There were 2 places where some wire was poking out of the dress but I easily covered them up with band aids so they weren't poking into me. I would definitely recommend this dress and RTR!

Overall fit: True to Size

I ended up going w the size 6 for two reasons... it fit a bit more snug than the 8, but also the 6 was longer than the 8 for some reason. (I dont think I was sent an 8L that's why). The dress was beyond chic and the jewels on top really added an extra flare to what would be a simple black dress. It was so comfortable and I love that the back had a bit of a train to it. I just love the look and fit of Badgley Mishka on my body type. Would def rent again! I wish I owned this one!
