Unfortunately, I didn't get to wear this great dress.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
The size 4 fit me in the waist but was too large on top and was too long with 4.5 inch heels. The size 2 was too small.

Gorgeous Dress

Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I absolutely adored this dress! I'd definitely say it fits true to size - I ordered an 8 because the 6 wasn't available for my rental period, so it was a little big, but I expected that. Although the dress looks blue in pictures, it really is a stunning violet in person. It's really comfortable too, nice and light. The one con I would say is the skirt - it was the perfect length, but the material got caught on stuff easily. It didn't tear or anything, but I would be wary of that. Other than that, it was perfect! I got so many compliments all night!

Did not end up wearing this choice but amazing dress!

I ended up not wearing this dress option but I tried it on in the showroom and wow! It was a hard choice between this and another option but this is a must try! This dress has a lot of its own movement and the silk falls beautifully.However, I would be sure to measure your bust correctly for this dress the silk does not have any give and fit just perfectly If I had the wrong size it would have been too small.

I was so happy I chose this dress! I got a ton of complements & really felt beautiful!

I waited til the last minute to rent so I was unable to get two sizes. I was forced to get the 0, but it ended up working out, thank god!! The dress is a really pretty purple. I went to a evening wedding and it was gorgeous in the sun. It is really flowy and soo comfortable. The only thing that was annoying was the length, I kept having to hold up the train. I really liked this dress because it was really classy but not over the top. Overall, I had an amazing experience with RTR and I will definitely rent from them again. Thanks RTR for your amazing customer service!

A classy elegant dress... but not for the full busted.

Size worn: 10R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I knew I was in trouble when I saw that backless back, but I decided to try it. I ended up not wearing this gown but it was a difficult choice. What I can tell others: This gown is long. I am 5'4 and put on 6" heels & it still dragged the ground like it needs to be hemmed. Tripped on the ends just walking around my apartment. If you are full busted (I am a 32FF) you need a low back bustier; which unless you already own one it is difficult to find before an event. I am not sure why this gown showed up for full busted women--unless you have a bustier. You will need fashion tape--to tape the sides by the arms so that it doesn't pucker between your full bust and your arms. This dress made me nervous--it is all silk & chiffon. Wear it to a non dancing, sitting/standing around looking pretty event. I was going to wear it to a ball with 2 dance rooms & open bars--I had a drink spilled on me twice that night--I'm glad I didn't wear this dress. The pros? It's extremely classy & elegant. You will feel like a socialite in it. It's light & flowing and just makes you feel like a princess. I hope I can rent it again--once I receive my bustier.

Very comfortable and elegant.

Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress is a beautfiul purple. Super comfortable. You don't really need a bra, but the Nu-bra made me feel less self conscious. I'm 5'6" and the regular length was fine with 2" heels. There were a few wrinkles in the skirt that didn't fall out as well as I would have liked, but overall not notiiceable.

Stunning dress! Pictures don't do it justice!

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size

This dress is beautiful. It is a gorgeous grape color, soft and flowy, sexy and pretty. I wore it for our annual Christmas Ball and it was a hit! It runs long though so even with 3 inch heels, I had to hold it up. I highly recommend this dress!

My husband and I were the event photographer's favorite subjects!

Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
We attended a Masquerade Ball on New Year's Eve. I happened to have the same Venetian mask as another lady at our table (gasp!), but even she had to admit that my dress made my ensemble look better than hers :). This dress is absolutely stunning! It does run a full size small so size up. It is also a rather long dress, so if you're my height (5'7''), and border on the line of being considered tall/short, get the regular. I wore about 4.5inch heels and the dress barely skimmed the floor in a regular.

Dramatic

Overall fit: True to Size

This fit exactly as I expected and it was very dramatic and gorgeous. But, the side of the dress was very exposing on my chest and I ended up wearing my backup instead.

I was far too short for this dress (I had to hold-up the train), but it looked stunning! The material flows out around you when you walk!

Really beautiful dress

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I thought my boobs looked enormous in this dress, and for a lot of people that would be great, but I'm a little self-conscious about mine. I would recommend this dress for pear-shaped figures...smaller on top, and fuller hips.

beautiful fabric & great color

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress was beautiful, but was too tight on my rib cage (which is actually pretty small for my size/height). I had to wear the other dress I rented as a back-up.
