Compliments all night
The dress fit me beautifully. I'm 5'2'', and the 2P was the appropriate height with heels. I ordered 0P as well, and it was much too small. So glad that I had the 2P. So many women told me that the dress was gorgeous throughout the night.

Stylist pick
This was added onto my order because one of the dresses I chose was unavailable. I almost told them to leave it out because I thought it would look terrible on me, but believe the other reviews - it is so flattering and made me feel so good. Very snug, but in a good way. My behind looked huge, but I considered wearing this anyway because I felt great in it. It was a smidge too short though, and I felt like I would have been pulling it down all night. I'm 5'6 and a half, and this is one size up and the long. So if you're tall it might be an issue!

I felt SO good in this dress!
This dress fit perfectly! The fabric was nice, not much stretch and fit snug around the waist and hips! The flair at the bottom was perfect and I was able to wear a regular bra so that was a pro! Love love love and wish I didn't have to send it back!!

Slightly tight but very flattering fabric
Wore this dress to the annual Navy Ball and received many compliments about the unique peplum look, dress was a little tight especially on top- I'm a 32C but still flattering.

See drama on the fit below, but overall the dress ended up being absolutely stunning.
For dresses, I normally wear a true 8, but read the reviews and ordered the 10 as well just to be safe. Also from reading the reviews, I determined that with my height and heels, the regular size would do just fine - WRONG! I desperately needed the Long size, but tried it on too late to call RTR to try and get a solution. Like I said above, overall the dress was absolutely stunning, however, if there was a flood coming, I was the first one prepared.

I rented this dress for a black-tie wedding, and I was thrilled with this look!
For me, this dress ran on the smaller side, so I was glad that the other reviewers recommended ordering the next size up. I found the 4P to be tight around the hips, but the 6P fit perfectly for dancing the night away! The length of the dress was perfect with heels.

I wore this dress to a formal fundraising event. Although it was form fitting, it was comfortable.
The dress is beautiful on and if form fitting but not to the point where your were not comfortable. It hugged you in all the right places. It does run small. I had a lot of fun in this dress.

The fabric was thick enough to be form flattering but thin enough for a hot Texas night.
Wore this for a military ball this spring. The only con was that I should have ordered a 2L since the 2R fit perfectly but was too short to wear with heels. I ended up wearing the 4R for the length with flats since it was still to short for even 3 inch heels.

The 4 was a little snug around the hips, so I wore the 6 for a more comfortable fit. The dress was very flattering and I highly recommend it!

Gorgeous for formal benefit
Dress fits like a dream. Peplum hits at a great place as to cover up the lower tummy/ food baby area (because I have priorities). Flares out at the bottom to give you an AMAZING figure-- I am stick straight up and down and it looked like I had some great curves!! I wore to a 5pm black tie gala, and dressed it down by using a low pony. Runs a little SHORT-- If you're tall and wearing anything above a 2in heel, get the tall size. I am obsessed with this dress, but will definitely get a Long next time.

I rented this dress to attend a coworker's black-tie wedding.
The dress was very flattering to my figure - hiding the lumps and accentuating the humps ;-) Beautiful color and super comfortable! I would definitely recommend it.

Sexy yet modest
I ordered this dress in a size too small, but ended up wearing this same dress in red. It is stunning! It is great for a girl with curves who wants to look sexy but doesn't want to show off too much skin.

This dress was beautiful!
The dress fits true to size but it was SUPER LONG on me. I followed the suggestions on the site before choosing my size but it still didn't fit right lengthwise. A 0P would have been perfect but I just ended up buying hem tape and fixing it as best as I could. My recommendation is that if you don't plan on wearing huge heels then you may want to older a length shorter than normal. Other than that, it was perfect and I would definitely recommend it to all my friends!

Navy gown plays up blue eyes and is very elegant!
This gorgeous, lightweight and comfortable dress was elegant, and looked perfect with a pearl strand of white, gray and dark blue. It had a slight give to it - and ran very true to size. I'm only 5'1", though and was disappointed that the length was way too long with my 3 1/2 " heels (I won't wear anything any higher for comfort's sake). But I called customer service and they said it was fine if I used some iron on stitch witchery to shorten it - as long as I undid it before shipping back. I was the Mother of the Groom, and the colors of the wedding were light beige and navy so this was perfect. It was comfortable enough to eat in, dance in and enjoy the long day and evening!! It has a lovely V in the back, but overall is modest enough for a church ceremony without feeling self-conscious. Like I said in the summary - it really plays up blue eyes! I've rented several times from RTR and was totally confident that I would get the gown in time and have a wonderful experience - regardless of the magnitude of this event - it just doesn't get much more important than being MOG and having a great dress! As expected, I was NOT disappointed. It was fabulous and I will rent again for my next big soiree`!

Really flattering
I actually didn't intentionally rent this dress, but I'm glad I got to try it on because I probably wouldn't have picked it on my own and it was really pretty. The backup size I had rented for another dress was returned to RTR damaged, so they sent me this one as an alternative, and I really loved how it looked and felt. Sadly, the 4P was too small on me (I couldn't even get it close to zipped - and really, the P was too short with heels). I would definitely keep this on my list for another event in the future. Thanks, RT, for helping me branch out a little bit.

This dress is so beautiful. I rented it for a gala and I was complimented all night. The fit is phenomenal (for anyone with a booty like me, this dress hugs your curves in the best way possible). I felt beautiful all night - I would rent this dress again.

I wasn't able to wear it to the event.
This is a beautiful dress in person. It looks like it does in the photos. However, it's important to note that it has no stretch at all. I am typically a size 6. I also got a size 8 as a back up and even though it fit, it would have been just a bit too snug to be comfortable.

Elegant yet professional
This dress was classic and stunning, accentuating all the right features. Hugged close around the chest and waist and flared out in mermaid fashion at the bottom. Perfect for hourglass figure and loved how the neckline scooped in the back. I'm 5'5" and the 6 was the perfect length with 3.75" heels. Arguably, my favorite feature was the material--no steaming necessary even after travel.

1st rental was PERFECT!!!
I was thrilled to learn that RTR had so many formal gown choices in petite lengths as I'm barely 5ft tall. I normally wear a 4P, but after reading several reviews I decided to order this dress in a 6P & 8P because my bra size is a 34DD and several mentioned the bust area being small. The 6P fit me perfectly and felt like it was made for my body. Even with the petite length dress, I still had to wear a 5 inch heel in order to not step on the hem all night. IMO, the petite length runs a little long since I would have been more comfortable in a shorter heel, but that is a very minor complaint. I LOVED the way the bottom of this dress moved when I walked. Also, the dress was super comfortable and I would definitely rent this dress again. My husband's job has us attending 3-5 formal events each year and RTR will now become my new go-to site! I've already placed a second order for another event next month. I also rented the necklace and the earrings and they were perfect!

Elegant, classy, and flattering
I usually wear a 10, and the 12l was perfect. Almost too tight. The long length was just right, the regular would have been too short for my 3 inch heels. I loved the contoured fit, and I didn't have to wear spanx! I would definitely use RTR again!

The dress fit perfectly, showed my curves in the best way possible.
I ordered the navy and red but I liked the red much better, just a better color for me. It fit really well all throughout the body. I ordered a size 4R, I'm 5'5 but ended up wearing really high heels since it was too long. The fabric was a little heavy for a spring/summer day, but it didn't show any sweat. This dress was absolutely amazing and made my prom so much fun.

Classy & Chic
Wore to a black tie affair and received compliments from my fiancé's coworkers all night long. The 2 was snug, but the 4 would have been too big. Material is thick, some what stretchy. Great cut for all figures. Perfect length when wearing 4in heels (normally 5'2). At the end of the evening my fiancé said, "I am so glad you're going to be my wife." He is a keeper and so is this gown.

Beautiful Dress!
I wore this dress for a sorority formal. I rented the blue and red of the same dress. The red fit a little bit larger than the blue. The blue fit perfectly!! I could wear a normal bra which was super helpful and comfortable. I loved this dress.

I felt like a million bucks in this dress. It was formal enough and not overly sexy for a wedding.
I normally wear a size 0, however, I ended up going up to a size 2 in this gown- thank goodness for the option of ordering a second size! I wore this dress with 3 inch heels, and the hem of the dress just touched the floor. This is, hands down, my favorite gown thus far, and I would order this gown again.

A little short, but beautiful dress!
The dress is a beautiful color, has great material, but definitely ran on the short side. I rented the long and regular, and both appeared to be the same length. I'm around 5' 7" and with 2 1/2 inch heels, it was still a little short. Overall, the dress was beautiful and I received a lot of compliments on it. RTR customer service was also great to work with! Will definitely rent again!

The fit ran a bit small, but it fit almost perfectly. I'm 5'4, 34C, and 133lbs and the 6P was perfect. I wore a small heel and the length was perfect. Super comfortable and flattering to the waistline. Highly recommend this classic look and color!

Being so short (5'1'') I was worried about the length, but with about 3-4 inch heels it was perfect. The material is comfortable and easy to move around in, especially if you're dancing in it. I would definitely recommend this dress.

Navy Peplum was gorgeous. Would 100% rent again. So flattering!
Would wear again. The Peplum style is so flattering. The dress was as described. I normally wear a size 6, but the size 8 fit much better with my bust. The zipper was easy to maneuver. I got tons of compliments from colleagues at our black tie awards dinner from this gown. Simply gorgeous!

A very comfortable and elegant dress!
LOVED this dress! I'm glad I ordered the next size up because it did run a little small. I loved the way the fabric hugged the right areas of your body and it was a very flattering silhouette for an hourglass like me. I was initially worries about the peplum since I have wide hips and a very narrow wait but it looked GORGEOUS! Loved it so much I asked if I could purchase it afterwards.

The dress fit perfect and the quality is noticeable. Wore this dress to a formal work event.
The dress was a perfect length for my 5.6 height with 4 inch heels. It's extremely comfortable and easy to sit, walk or dance for long evening events. A really great dress and I'm very happy I got to wear it to the formal sales award dinner. I received, so many compliments and felt very well dressed.

Beautiful dress, would rent again!
I wore this dress to a formal wedding. I was 1 month postpartum so I went up a couple sizes. It does run on the smaller side so I would order one size up even if you're not postpartum. It fit beautifully & I got a ton of compliments on this dress. The back is a little low so you might want to opt for bra cups as opposed to a full bra. This dress had just the right amount of peplum & I liked that it was navy, I tend to always wear black to formal events. I would definitely rent this dress again.

Hugs in all the right places-absolutely stunning and never wanted to take it off!
The dress fit like a glove, is extremely flattering and I received compliments all night! As a girl with curves, I was nervous that it may be too tight in the hips and bust area but it turned out great. I did not need to wear spanx as the material was thick enough and it did not show any bra lines. I wore 4 inch heels throughout the night and the dress did drag a teeny bit on the floor (but that's what happens when you're 5'2!) For length purposes I would order the petite but unfortunately it was already sold out. I absolutely cannot wait to rent this dress again (next time in red!) and would recommend it to anyone. The color was stunning, photographed beautifully, and unlike other users, I did not pair a chunky necklace with it. Big earrings worked just fine and did not take away from the dress!

Such a flattering fit. Felt like it was tailored for my body.
I ordered the dress for a company holiday party in both 0R and 2R.. I ended up wearing the 0 because the 2 had a little snag I just couldn't look past. It has so much stretch in it that it wasn't a problem. The length was perfect with 4" heels. I loved the fit and received so many compliments on the dress.

Beautiful Classy Dress
This is my favorite RTR rental so far! It is a very form-fitting dress. Strangely enough, the size 0 was larger than the size 2? Someone else had written that in a previous review and I found it to also be true. Definitely size up with this dress. And be prepared to wear spanx!
