Super comfy and stylish!

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I normally wear a size 2, and based on previous reviews I ordered my regular size and a size up. The 2 fit perfectly and was fitted but not constricting. I would recommend going a size up if you have a bigger bust- my bust size is pretty small and it still felt snug around there (didn't have to wear a bra which was a plus). I wore this to a black-tie charity gala- overall the dress was super comfy and I received a ton of compliments on it all night!

I loved this dress! It was comfortable, movable and breathable for all the dancing I did that night!

Size worn: 8L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wore a 3 inch heal so the height was good, a tad bit off the floor which I was OK with! I ordered larger since the reviews said it ran small and it fit perfectly! I felt like a million bucks! I wish i owned this dress. I also rented the gold cuff from RTR! It was the perfect addition to complete the look! I totally recommend you get this for your next forma/black tie event!

This dress looks great in photos and fit like a dream!

Size worn: 8L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I am 5'11" and 155 lbs, and I usually wear a size 6 in dresses. Hearing from other women that this ran a bit small, I ordered an 8 as well, and it fit perfectly. I would definitely recommend a long size for women 5'9" and up since the dress was actually perfect for longer legs. I even wore heels!

The dress fit me perfectly. I loved the slit down the middle. This dress had everything I wanted. It flaunted my legs which is exactly what I wanted to show more of. There was absolutely nothing wrong. I felt amazing all night!

This dress was sexy yet chic and highlighted my favorite features! Perfect for prom round two

Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
GO A SIZE UP!! I did so after reading reviews that this dress runs small and ended up wearing the bigger size of the two that I ordered. Even then, the dress was very form-fitting and flattering; I also didn't end up needing a bra. However, the dress ended up feeling a little too snug in unusual 89 degree Seattle weather and after a night of movement and dancing (especially in the armpit/back area). The fabric is also much thicker than I expected it to be. All that aside though, this dress fit and looked exactly how I wanted it to! It clung in all the right places.

I would recommend it! First RTR.

Size worn: 10L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
Dress was perfect overall -so many compliments. This was my first RTR- so unsure on my size according to this. It does run a little small- was a bit snug even in 10. I ordered a long, but was not long enough for heels for me. Thought maybe that was due to being a bit curvy and the dress fitting snug. I was still able to dance like crazy and the slit was a nice addition, but just like the cutout gave it a little of sexy without going over the top.

Size worn: 0R

The dress was certainly a head turner and was true to size! Only con was that it was a little long on me and I had 4 inch heels on (I'm also 5'0"). RTR made the rental process extremely easy. Will definitely be renting again in the near future :)

Comfortable and Sexy

Size worn: 2R
Rented for: Formal Affair
True to size, ordered the 2 and it fit perfect, the 4 was too big in the waist. I am 5'5 and wore 3 inch heels. I wasn't a fan of the one shoulder so I tucked it inside the dress and it looked perfectly normal. Overall very flattering and comfortable.

The fabric stretched to fit so that was nice. It hugs your curves beautifully. My only complaint would be that the zipper stuck a little. Other than that, a beautiful dress that landed me compliments all night at prom.

Overall fit: True to Size

This dress was perfect for a black tie affair. I had to wear the six as the four was unavailable the date I needed it and I do wish the lower half fit more snugly around my hips but the six fit perfectly on the top as I have a large rib cage/bigger bust. Highly recommend this dress and would suggest sizing up if you are larger on top!

Dress did run a little small so make sure you order your regular size and size up for the backup. Not one complaint about this dress. It was gorgeous and fit so well. Very flattering so you really cannot go wrong with this dress! It's simple but still so elegant and a little sexy at the same time.

Classy yet sexy

Size worn: 6L
Rented for: Formal Affair
I LOVED this dress! I received so many compliments. The slit was so fun, and I felt so sexy and glamorous. It fit me like a glove, but I did have to go up one size. I recommended renting your size and one size up. If you're 5'6" and above I definitely recommend going a size up if you're planning on wearing heels. I'm 5'7" and wore 3in heels and the 6L was the perfect length.

Size worn: 6R

I wore this dress to my senior prom and got so many compliments and felt great! I wore my hair pulled back on one side with a bold smoky eye and gold studded heels to compliment the edginess of the dress. Fit well, but was a little hard to dance in (which made a great excuse to not have to dance much ;) )

I got a 6 and an 8. I am usually a 6, however reviews said it ran small. I am 5'3 and with four inch heels the 6 dress was perfect. While it ran tight in the bust area, it got more comfy throughout the night. It was so hard to send this dress back because I was obsessed, RENT IT!

The material doesn't stretch very much but was still comfortable. I wore this dress with 4 inch heels and it was perfect! Would definitely recommend renting a "long" if you are over 5'6" and planning to wear heels. My dress even came a day early! Service was amazing, will definitely be renting again.

Perfect dress for prom

Size worn: 4R
Rented for: Formal Affair
I am usually between a size 2 and 4, but I ended up wearing the 4. It fit perfectly and was so flattering. I would suggest this for people with smaller hips and chests, as the dress isn't very stretchy. I wore 4 inch heels and the dress was the perfect length (I'm 5'6"). Overall, perfect dress for my senior prom.

I rented a 2 and 4 but I ended up wearing the 4 so I would be able to dance comfortably. I was very comfortable all night and the length was perfect with my high tops. I could easily wear a strapless bra which was very nice. I also got tons of compliments all night because of the uniqueness of the dress!

This dress was perfect. I was so nervous when I first ordered cause this dress was tighter than my usual style. This is my second time ordering from RTR and I will always use them for formal events. I suggest ordering one size up because I thought I was a 6 but I ended up wearing the 8 because it fit perfectly! I am 5'7 and wore 4 inch heels so the long was the perfect length. The slit is a little more centered than I thought but it ended up looking amazing. This dress made me feel awesome!! Did not want to return it after prom!

This was my first experience using RTR, and I'm so glad I did. My order even arrived early!

Size worn: 10L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wore this dress to a formal gala event and received compliments on it all night long. I'm 5'9 1/2" and figured the dress would be too short or too tight, but the 10L worked perfectly. It actually left me with a little bit of wiggle room in the bust area which was nice for dancing, but wasn't so loose that it was falling down. I wore 3 1/2 inch heels and this ended up working out well. I didn't feel like I was going to trip and fall over the gown throughout the night. Would recommend this dress for any formal event!
