Feeling amazing for my 30th bday party and everyone complimenting on how beautiful the dress was!
The dress is wonderful, looks even more beautiful on in person than it does in pics. It's really light so it's perfect to wear for a summer event. I wore it for my 30th birthday party and I felt both classy and sexy in it which is exactly what I wanted. Everyone complimented on how beautiful the dress was, so that was an added bonus. The only con was that the bust area is a little larger than normal for the size. At least for my chest size. :-) I rented both a 4 and 6 since that's what I normally wear in dresses, but I wore the 4 - it fit very well/snug in the waist area, but the bust area was a little baggy for me and even the straps were a little loose at the top of the shoulders. I used the fashion tape that was included in the rental though to tape down the dress to my bra, so it ended up working well. Overall loved it, and was sad to return it!

Loved this dress, it was perfect for a summer wedding!
This dress was perfect for a NYC summer wedding. Flirty and lightweight, I got constant compliments all night. It does run small, so for most people it is possible to wear without a bra. I was comfortable and dazzled without feeling over dressed. My visit to the showroom was a success and my first rental was an amazing experience.

Perfect summer dress!
Like the other reviews said, this dress is super lightweight so it is perfect for summer. The dress looks much better in person than in the picture. The fabric is so delicate and pretty.

Looked great in photos!
The dress quality was not great, but it looked amazing in photos. The material is very thin. I am short so the straps were too long and I had to pin them down for my wedding party dress.

Didn't wear this dress
I am typically a 4/6 and the size 4 in this dress was far too small. The cinch in the waist is unforgiving and gives a sausage look. The material is light but it has a cheap rough feel. This dress had the feel and look of a costume. I wouldn't rent this one again.

Definitely runs small--maybe even smaller for my body type
I was extremely worried about fitting into a Lela Rose 10 (as many other renters said her dresses ran small) and was glad I could rent this one in a 12 (I'm between 10-12 at the moment). However, maybe because of my chest size or just my ribcage, I couldn't get the 12 zipped on this dress. I had other dresses to wear, so it didn't end up being a problem, but I was surprised by this. Be aware! Beyond the fit--it is important to note that the material is crinkly/crunchy and very shiny. Even if it had fit, I would think twice before wearing this to a wedding. In a different size, I would wear this more for a New Year's excursion or a night out before a semi-formal or cocktail event.

Great for a summer wedding, but a bit tight!
Definitely runs tight up top, so I had to wear a size up (typically I am a 4). However, I got a ton of compliments on the color and fit. Was great for summer as the material is very light and linen-esque.

Lightweight, golden stunner!
This dress was incredible. Beautiful fabric, lightweight and soooo flattering. I chose not to wear a bra and was perfectly comfortable. The waist was more fitted than I expected but very comfortable. The fabric is a little scratchy so I decided to wear a slip under the dress so it wouldn't bother me. I honestly hated to send this dress back and felt beautiful at my birdal shower.

Pretty Party Dress
Other people commented on this - the dress material was very light. I was pretty surprised that it cost as much as it did. Feels like a sundress, but the gold adds some fanciness to it. I'm very pear shaped, and this dress was too big in the top and too tall in the shoulders. The skirt is quite full, but there is a lining that is more narrow that was tighter than I would have liked, but I was able to wear it anyway (I have quite full hips so may not be a problem for most). The length was good even though I'm on the taller side and often have a problem with length. Overall it was comfortable. Good for standing around with a cocktail and for dancing. I enjoyed wearing it even though the fit wasn't quite right. I'd recommend to someone who's more of an hourglass or athletic than a pear.

Customer Service is unbeatable.!
I received this dress as a swap out dress when I had to return my original rental for fit. The material was very light weight and almost a little scratchy. The pattern on the dress was gorgeous though. The straps were a little long and kept slipping off my shoulders. I even tried securing with fashion tape, but then it looked bunchy elsewhere. I usually wear a size 2 and the 2 was a bit roomy in this style. If it weren't for these fit issues, I would have definitely worn it. I went with the backup dress instead. Love the RTR team. They overnighted me a swap dress so that I would have it in time for the wedding. The dress had to be mailed to an out of state hotel where the wedding was. The dress made it to the front desk before we did! So great. Thanks again RTR

It was an absolutely beautiful dress
It fit perfectly which was surprising since it was a size 2 and i usually wear size 0 ( this was the alternate dress). It nips perfectly at the waist and then flares, which is perfect for my body type.

risque but not tacky. perfect for dinner with the bf at a little italian place
I would say it runs large because I am normally a six but got a four after reading the reviews. no give in the fabric but does wonders for a small bust. It was so much fun to wear and my boyfriend loved it

comfortable, eye-catching and flattering dress for my Bachelorette Party!
I am 120 lbs, 5'3" and have a 32G bra size. The dress fit very nicely and I loved wearing it. It was easy to find matching shoes and earrings in my own collection. My only issue was that, with my really large bust, it showed a lot more cleavage than I wanted. However, I had a "Bride-to-be" sash that I pinned and it was able to cover me so I didn't give my grandmother a heart attack. haha. Also, my bra was slightly visible in the armpits, but that's just because I wear a large bra. It wasn't really noticeable to anyone else but me. I highly recommend this dress, especially to those with a similar body-type but in the C-D cup range lol.

Didn't Wear The Dress
The dress runs very small around the ribcage .. if you have a large chest order the size up! The material looked cheap to me and was itchy as well .. pulled something from my closet instead of wearing the dress.

I ended up returning this dress and renting another.
The dress was pretty but ran tight. It was bigger on too but then the waist was very tight. Both sizes I tried on just didn't look that great.

Pretty and dainty
I was in between the 2 and 4. The 2 held my bust in better so out to the wedding I went. Once the food starting going down, I wished I had worn the 4. The cut and fabric are lightweight and beautiful but the material is not at all stretchy.

Wearing it for my graduation was the icing on the cake to a great event.
The straps were rather long. While the bottom half was flouncy and gorgeous, the top half was large.

Runs a little small, not the best for large bust.
I ordered this dress for a bridal shower. I am a 10 and sometimes 12 right now, so I ordered both. The 10 was too small, and the 12 fit everywhere but up top. It fit through the bust (with a little more cleavage than I liked), but the straps were too long and sat up off my shoulders an inch or two. They aren't adjustable and I couldn't really pin them so I ended up not wearing the dress. I am a DD and it fit my bust when I went a size up, just the straps were too long. This dress is very fitted/slimming through the waist and would be good on someone with lower tummy pooch/booty issues they want to hide. The dress is very pretty in person, it is very thin/light material as others have mentioned. Bummed that it didn't work on me.

Fun, flirty party dress!
I LOVED this dress! The color and the cut are so flattering. It was a bit tight in the bust- but I am busty for my frame so it was just all the more support. I may have even gone bra-less, I can't remember, but if I did, there was enough support that it wasn't a problem. It was a little tight around the arms, but again, the added support was nice. I would certainly rent this dress again!

Made my 5th wedding anniversary perfect
I wore this out to dinner with my hubby for our 5th wedding anniversary. I loved it. For the first time in 3 years I felt comfy and gorgeous. It did make the girls pop out a lot but I was ok. It wasn't itchy to me. I was worried about the length being to short judging on how it looked on the model but I think the length was more then perfect. Over all this was a great first experience. Thank you RTR for making my anniversary that much more special!

Amazing dress! Got tons of compliments!
The dress looks really good and fit is true to size! It's a bit short though, so keep that in mind depending how tall you are/the kind of event you're going to. The top is pretty tight and there's a big cleavage, I wouldn't advise on taking that dress if you are more than a size C!

Fun dancing dress!
The dress was lovely, and a lot of fun to go dancing in! It was long enough that I felt comfortable dancing, and I wore a normal bra with zero problems. While other reviewers are correct that the fabric is not super-soft, it is very lightweight and felt like good quality. Perfect for an active summer evening, and very different from what everybody else will be wearing!

Such a fun dress! It can be dressed up or down depending on your event.
Ok - the straps are deceivingly large!!! They were puckering and gapping all night, and I had to sit a certain way so that it wouldn't look ridiculous. Waist and chest fit fine. I definitely had a lot of the girls showing that night - more than usual - but the husband didn't mind!

Short girls beware...
Fabric was nice and the cut of the dress was cute but I should have listened to the other reviews that said that people had to pin the straps up. If you have a short torso this isn't the dress for you. To get the waist band to fit properly I had extra inches in the straps that would just look ugly if I pinned them. This was a wild card dress for me so I had different dress to wear.

Runs extremely small!
I liked the look and shape of the dress, but definitely SIZE UP in this case. I am usually a 4 or a 6 and got those sizes.. I barely got the 6 to zip and when I did, my chest was spilling out and it just wasn't appropriate for the work event I had rented it for. I have had some bad luck with my rentals lately but hopefully it will turn around soon!

Elegant Glitz and Glam
I wore this dress for my cousin's waterfront wedding. The fit was a bit tricky for me, as I'm a true hourglass shape. It was very flattering once I pinned a few things in place. I am very busty so I had to take up the arm straps a few inches, because they were too big, but my chest filled it out. Also I'm short so I had to pin up the dress underneath the waistline so it hit in the right place. I got a ton of compliments, but was constantly worried that I would have a wardrobe malfunction. I would say this would work best on shorter, more petite girls, or curvy taller girls to be most fitted without any DIY help! Also the material was thin and cool which was good, but the metallic fabric was pretty itchy. All and all I was happy with how it looked.

This dress was just ok.
Although the dress looked great on and in pictures, I had a big problem with the straps. They were too long, so I had to try to safety pin them to make them shorter. Partway through my bachelorette party, the safety pins popped off, so the rest of the night the straps were constantly falling off my shoulders.

Cute style, but fabric is a little flimsy
I rented this dress as a backup for my rehearsal dinner (did not end up wearing it) The colors and the style of the dress are really cute, however the fabric feels a little bit cheap. It's very thin and kind of flimsy and doesn't have any lining so it felt more like an ice skating outfit than a cocktail dress. Would be cute for a bachelorette party or something more casual than a rehearsal dinner. Very fun and sparkly though!
