Stunning gown

Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I needed a dress for a white tie event. The fit was perfect for my body. The lace in the front and back is not see through which I liked. There is no stretch or give with this dress and snug at the waist. I wore a spanx slip and a strapless bra although you can wear a regular bra. I wore spanx just to have a smooth look. I received so many compliments even though there were about 10 other women wearing a green dress.

STYLIST REVIEW

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This is such an amazingly-made gown- the fabric is so luxurious and gorgeous, the color is this really pretty deep emerald. The fabric doesn't stretch, though this gown isn't a particularly tricky fit or anything. I didn't find it to be super-fitted in any one area. The waist is also nipped in a bit, which makes for a more flattering silhouette. I'd definitely go up for your free backup! I'm wearing the regular length in this photo with 5 inch heels and it was about an inch off the group.

Absolute elegance- not your standard event dress!

Size worn: 10R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
One thing I love about RTR is that it gives me the opportunity to wear dresses I would never be able to wear otherwise. This was that kind of dress. It is beautiful. The color is gorgeous, the line and drape of the skirt is just absolutely elegant, and yet it's something completely different than all the LBDs you see at formal events. Two (very minor) things to note: it was very long (even with 4 inch stilettos it was dragging on the floor), and the top gaped a bit. However, overall an utterly perfect choice to stand out- in a good way- at your next ball or gala!

The fabric of the dress is beautiful, perfect for a formal event. Stands out in every single way.

Size worn: 8L
Overall fit: True to Size

The dark color is perfect for a formal event, the silk fits perfectly if you're curvy. No one had a dress that resembled this, I got compliments all night long. Order the regular because the long is simply too long, everyone stepped on me all night. Still wonderful, it made my senior ball the perfect night.

Wasn't able to wear, but it is a beautiful dress.

It fits true to size, unless you have big hips. The seam runs right along the largest part of my hips with no give. I was unable to wear the dress.

Beautiful dress, fits perfectly, very long

Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is beautiful. The bow on the front was a little loose, but no one noticed but me. It was very flattering on my body shape - bigger hips, smaller waist - because of the fit and flare shape. It is very long. I am 5'10" and wore 2.5" heels with the regular length size and the length was perfect. I imagine you'd have to be over 6' to need the long. I especially liked that I could wear a regular bra with this dress. It am a 32F and I can't not wear a bra. Customer service was great, my dress actually arrived 2 days earlier than expected and in perfect condition.

I rented this dress for a Downton Abbey themed party. I felt like a character from the show!!

Everything about this dress is pure class. The fabric, color, and fit all scream classic elegance. The fit is true to size and the length was perfect on my 5'11 frame.

This dress was perfect for my event!

Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was beautiful. I actually had a different dressed picked out to wear, but there was an issue with it before they sent it, so RTR sent me this amazing dress! It fit like a glove. I received so many compliments on it. It is a bit long, so I had to wear 4 1/2- 5 inch heels to ensure it didn't drag too much, but then again what girls don't love a good heel! I highly recommend this for a black-tie wedding.

Service!!!

Size worn: 2L
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
The stellar service, my first choice had a stain, the back up didn't quite fit, stylist selected this for me, gorgeous. A bit large in hips but I'm narrow, it still lay well cause of fine cut and fabric weight. Hint of décolletage & nice shape without shape wear! I'm 5'5, regular woulda been fine length. 128 lbs 36-28-36. I loved this dress.

The dress was so unique. The look was effortless- the dress spoke for itself.

Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: True to Size

The fit was true to size. The dress is long- however, it only adds to the elegance. The fabric and form were so luxurious. I would recommend this dress to anyone. The overall RTR experience was flawless, as well! I will be a repeat customer!

This dress was my backup but it was PERFECT.

Size worn: 8L
Rented for: Other
I wanted a dress for an anniversary photo shoot and needed something that had a glamorous, vintage-y feel but not over the top formal. I chose this as a backup and was nervous about the size since I fluctuate between an 8 and a 10 in dresses, depending on the fit. This hugged every curve perfectly--I did wear Spanx underneath to smooth everything out--and I am on the busty side (not huge but my boobs are definitely THERE) but didn't feel too exposed for these pictures (Grandma's going to be seeing them, after all). I had one or two cleavage shots but the dress was very classy. The color is rich and gorgeous and the satin bottom was beautiful. I could tell the dress had been rented quite a few times, maybe a small snag on the bottom but nothing that anyone would notice while you were wearing it. I also had to iron the front part with the folded fabric details but nothing crazy. I am 5'8 and the long was the perfect length, covering my shoes when seated. I do like to wear things longer. First RTR experience and was very pleased--no problem having it delivered to a hotel.

This dress was amazing. Suitably glamorous - yet so easy to wear.

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size

This was maybe a tad bit large for me, and I had to get massive 5 or 6-inch heels in order to make it work, but the end result was fantastic. The fabric felt lush and it was great fun to wear.

Good, not great

Went with another dress -- this was fine, but despite the rich materials looked a little frumpy.
