Very comfortable dress. It doesn't really look expensive so I believe the rental price is high.
This dress is big in the bust area. It looks like it will be stretchy and it's not. I am 5'6 and it was way too long for me. People kept stepping on it and I was tripping on the dress as well. I wouldn't recommend this dress.

Looks great. I agree that the rental price seems high and should definitely be lowered since you can purchase it online for 80$

Gorgeous dress!
I wore this for a formal wedding and received so many compliments! The color was a beautiful purple and the hem was outstanding! The gown was long and swept the floor even with 4 in heels. The top was slightly big for me - but used the fashion tape provided by RTR and it held up decently. I would love to wear this dress for another event!

It was certainly a one of a kind dress, and I got loads of compliments!
It is a super gorgeous dress and it fit perfectly except for the top. This dress is certainly for those that are a bit bustier than I am. Thankfully, RTR sent some alteration tape so it wasn't really an issue. I did notice that the description of the dress said that it wouldn't be good for anyone taller than 5'7" and I am 5'9". I took a chance since the model in the picture was 5'10". It was the perfect length for me even with 3" heels. Great experience!

Beautiful color!
This dress is awesome and flows out beautifully when you walk. I received so many compliments on the dress, the color is flattering and the bonus is that it is super comfortable too! I wore 4" heels and the dress was the perfect length.

Gorgeous color and comfy all night!
This dress is great! Perfect length with 3 inch heels. I thought it fit true to size and was nice and light all night long. Wore it to a black tie optional gala and danced all night and had people complimenting me all night as well. A great color that won't get lost in the crowd! RTR does need to do some tailoring repairs on a bit of their inventory, though. I wore the 0 which had some loose stitches at the shoulder that didn't show. The 2 had a busted seam on the front of the neckline though, so I'm glad it wasn't the better fit! I got this dress overnighted after my first 2 choices fit but were stained or had similar tailoring issues. Loved the customer service of sending me another dress overnight and they threw in the Alexis Bittar cerulean cuff which looked FAB with the dress.

This dress is great if you like to dance!!!
This was my first RTR experience and I loved it. It's exciting waiting for your dress to arrive, and trying it on for the first time. I had no worry because i had order the free 2nd dress for just in case. The dress fit perfectly it runs true to size. What's fun about the dress is when you walk/dance it moves and reveals your leg; very provocative but safe :)

Fantastic Color!
Perfect dress for a Wedding (Ceremony and Reception). Very comfortable, but it was a little loose in the chest area for me (34B). Love the flow of this dress as you walked. Very elegant, but fun and flirty due to the slit, that wasn't all that visible unless you had long strides. The fabric laid over the slit nicely. I received many compliments but unfortunately forgot to get any pictures!

Great color, lots of compliments!
The color of this dress was beautiful! It definitely shows up as blue in non-professional photos but in person is a vibrant purple. I was worried about the slit, but at 5'4" it wasn't an issue. I originally ordered this dress in the green but the previous renter did not return on time. RTR sent me a couple back ups to make sure I still got a great dress that I was comfortable in.

didn't love on my body type
I have a larger waist and wearing something that billows around the waist slightly only amplified/enlarged my waist's appearance. For this reason I didn't wear. Fabric and color were nice.

unfortunately, didn't get to wear the dress
Beautiful purple color, flowing Grecian style, but when I zipped up the top, I found there was a section of the zipper area that was pulled from a previous wearer. But really pretty dress. One other negative I noticed, while the front of the dress has a few different layers of fabric, the back was 1 single, fairly thin layer. Felt a bit see-through even honestly.

I heard "i love your dress" more times than I can remember!
Fit true to waist/tummy/thigh size; however, the chest portion was too big. I did read this in previous reviews before I decided to give the dress a chance but was hoping that my 34DD cup size with a strapless bra would be enough to fill it out; it was close but I kept fidgeting with the top all night to make sure that the top was not sagging enough to reveal my bra. It would be perfect if you have the option to go braless except I might be worried about a surprise visit!! Yet that problem would be solved with fashion tape I would imagine. I'm 5'9 and the dress was too short for your every day 3 inch high heel so I ended up pairing it with Jack Rogers flats and it looked amazing! The dress is so versatile in that in can be dressed up or dressed down with flats or heels. Also, an fyi.. there are 3 layers to the lower portion of the dress: the built in slip that hit right at my thighs, the layer that forms the slit on the left leg, and the outer layer that makes the dress floor length. I found it difficult to keep the "slip" layer pulled down and straight under the second layer and this made wrinkles along my back side from the fabric gathering up. I wouldn't say that I have a "big butt" or "junk in the trunk" so I don't claim that to be the problem. This would not have been an issue had I gone to an event where I would have been just standing around mingling; however, this was for my Spring formal so I was dancing around quite a bit. Overall, these issues I described were minimal and supposedly, no one was aware of them, just me. Definitely did not make this dress a deal breaker.

I loved how easy it was to dance!
I loved the color of the dress and I certainly got compliments all night. It was raining and the fabric shows rain drops or anything wet VERY easily. So be careful not to be around anyone who spills a drink! Also be careful of deodorant! The only thing I didn't like was that the fabric does not lay flat on your hips and it shows pretty much every line of fabric under the dress. Also a teeny bit clingy to the tummy. But nothing spanks can't fix! The 2 fit me perfectly but I'm super critical and didn't like how it was fitted over my lower tummy. The 4 was definitely too big for me personally but I liked how it looks kinda toga-ish so the oversize kinda worked! All in all I did love the dress and that is saying a lot because I am VERY picky! Definitely rent this dress, you just need the right undergarments to feel flawless!

Gorgeous, fun, flowy dress
Dress fit true to size, perfect length, with 3-4in heels. I didn't end up wearing, only bc this was my backup and my first choice fit perfectly. My first choice gave me better curves. This one doesn't really cinch in the waist as much and made me look a little boxy/large in the midsection. Fab color and flow though!! Love RTR!

This was a really beautiful dress in a beautiful color, but I did not get to wear it.
Beautiful dress - the fabric is light and the color is wonderful. This was my first choice and I was really bummed when I could not wear it. The dress fit in all the right places, BUT was really large in the bust. I have an hourglass figure and generally have to get a size to fit my hips, but even with a larger chest, this dress was actually exposing half of mine when I put it on. I tried working it with some fashion tape, but it just didn't look right. This dress is probably a much better fit for someone with a less curvy figure.

Sassy, classy and fun!
I had been waiting for an opportunity to rent this dress and finally had the chance to wear it for my cousin's formal wedding. I ordered the 4R as a backup size, however it was not available- no problem, the 2R fit just great! Pros: the color and style of this dress are wonderful! I received compliments all night. I wore 3" heels and had no problems with the length. Cons: the side without the strap sat a little low, so I used fashion tape to keep it where it needed to be. Loved that I could wear my regular strapless bra with it. I was worried the draping might make me look boxy, but the waist was great. I loved the way it flowed, I very well may rent it again, I had so much fun in it!

My best friend's wedding (aka college reunion)
Overall, this is a fabulous dress and I got compliments on it all night. BUT- there were several issues. First, my dress had a huge hole in the side seam, as if someone had tried to squeeze into it and ripped it. Luckily, I am a stylist and seamstress so I was able to fix it, but it's not what I wanted to be doing the morning of my friend's wedding. It was also quite big up top, even though I opted for a smaller size. I had to double-stick tape it, and also took in the left shoulder, since it kept falling down. Make sure you are wearing a cute bra, because it will definitely show if you're moving around at all.

Pretty!
This really was such a pretty dress... It was sent as a back up size when one of the dresses I ordered originally was too damaged to be sent to me. I ended up wearing another dress (that went better with the shoes I had), but still loved this dress. It fell nicely, and moved gracefully with each step! The color was deep and beautiful. I will definitely be renting this dress for an event in the future!

Beautiful! Received so many compliments. Felt like a Greek goddess ;). Just felt amazing in it!
It was comfortable to dance in. The color was gorgeous. There was a tear next to the zipper which would have been very noticeable but I safety pinned it since I didn't have time to have another dress sent to me. Customer service has been extremely helpful with the situation though.

Perfect dress for a perfect beach wedding
Will you probably need spanx for the hips/booty and a strapless bra? Yup. Will you show some Angelina Jolie style leg and feel dramatic with the dress flowing as you walk? Yup. Will pictures do the dress any justice? Nope! My biggest pet peeve with this dress is that it doesn't photograph well. It's a beautiful rich purple and gorgeously flows as you walk showing some serious leg but it is tame and classy while standing. My boyfriend was OBSESSED with this dress and asked me if RTR would let me buy it he loved it so much. A few people mentioned water marks being as issue. Any water (or spilled white wine!) I got on the dress did not leave any marks although I made sure to "rub out" the wet spots with a towel or napkin until it dried just in case!

This is a beautiful dress!
I got tons of compliments and it's super flattering. I wore it to my high school's 125th birthday (our school color is purple) and it was a big hit. The purple is a nice deep shade. The side can fall a little low and be a tad loose, but I wore a padded strapless bra with Hollywood tape and it stayed up perfectly. Looks best with gold jewelry.

Didn't fit but it was gorgeous!
I rented this dress for a wedding. I took a chance ( since I usually wear between a 12 & 14) but this dress no where near fit me. It was extremely narrow in the bust area. However, the color was beautiful and the style is gorgeous. If this dress came in a 14 or even 16, I would have loved to wear it.

It was a great dress! Covered all the spots on my tummy I wanted to hide. The only problem is the top was a little loose. Other than that, I highly recommend it!

So many compliments!
The fit is very nice. I wear a size 6 and this was true to size. That being said, I am 34ddd and I had plenty of room so it may run big on top for other people. The color is beautiful, almost more purple/blue. I have told everyone I know about the site and how nice it was to work with them. I was even able to change my shopping address right as it was about to go out the door. Will definitely use again. My only con would be that there was definitely a hint of BO on the dress when I got it.

Looked great, felt great..but....
I should have paid attention to the other reviews that said this dress shows everything. Yeah, it does. I lotioned my legs, it bled through the fabric. I wore a strapless bra and squeem--you could see the hooks. Any liquid or oil within 25 ft is gonna get on this dress and it will show. Whomever cuts these cold shoulder dresses needs to understand strapless bras--I had it pinned & double sided sticky tape & the bra STILL SHOWED. I had to tug it up for pictures constantly so the line of black wouldn't show. However, I got a TON of compliments, mostly about the color. I played it save this year and went with a more plan dress. I should have gussied up some more. It's not a show stopper, but it was comfortable and the slit was sexy. I won't rent it again as I like more BAM In the room type of dresses.

Makes an entrance!
The size 6 fit perfect but I preferred the 8 with a slightly looser fit which was way more comfortable for dancing. Loved how the material flowed around my legs when walking and the high slit gave the dress some drama. The only thing a slit that high makes it difficult/impossible to wear spanx
