I cannot begin to tell you the complements I received on this gown. It truly is an elegant dress... the beading is so exquisite and it hugged me in all the right places. I am a 6 in practically everything but I ended up going with the 40L. I had to wear pretty short heels (about 2.5inch) bc otherwise it would have looked like I was going to a flood. There is a bit of stretch in the material, but I still suggest going a size up as your backup especially if you are tall!

Magical night with my husband....
Size worn: 36R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress was beautiful, very comfortable to dance in - the length was long but I wore 3 1/2 inch heels and it worked fine. Only issue was the shoulder strap was too loose, so we safety pinned in it the back at the bottom. Love this dress - thanks you!!

Absolutely fell in love with this dress! I wore it to a charity gala and it was perfect. Very flattering. Beautiful accents. I'm 5'4" and wore 3.5 inch heels and it was the perfect length. Sexy, glamorous, high quality/very expensive looking material. A must rent!!

Absolutely loved this dress! I felt so amazing in this dress and got so many compliments!
Size worn: 38R
Overall fit: True to Size

I usually wear a 6 but in my business dresses they are always a little large so I decided to order the 4 and the 6. I ended up wearing the 4 and it fit great! My only small issue was that the strap was a little loose for my liking. The fabric looked almost satin-y but had some stretch to it. The dress was a little darker than I originally expected but I loved it nonetheless!

Beautiful, yet comfortable gown to dance the night away at my best friends wedding!
Size worn: 34R
Overall fit: True to Size

The dress was form fitting but not tight in the sense that you could not move, dance and/or eat. It fit like a glove and was perfect for a black tie affair.

Sexy! I loved it!
Size worn: 36R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I wore this dress for my mom'ssurprise 60th b-day party. I wanted it to be perfect and didn’t mind spending extra to secure the right fit. I am usually a size 4 or 6. I ordered a 34R, 36R, and a 38R. Although I'd read in the reviews that this dress didn't stretch much I went ahead and ordered 3 sizes. I thought I could squeeze into a 34R, which is equivalent to a 2R. The tighter the better for me, since I wanted to look my best. Size 34R didn't zip, 36R was perfect, 38R was a little loose on hips but comfortable, However, I went with the 36R, which is an American size 4. I felt it accentuated my figure better. The burst area was tight so if you are big up top, remember there isn't much stretching room. This dress is beautiful! I got so many compliments; I danced all night and felt great in it.

I LOVED this dress! It was very flattering and sohphisticated w/ the right amount of sexy.
Size worn: 36R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I got what equated a 2R and a 4R at the stylist’s recommendation. I should have gotten a size up. Though it fit just fine, I would have liked to see what a size up would have done. I had plenty of room for my 32 DDD so a smaller busted girl would probably need a strapless or Nu bra. If I had gotten the size up I may have as well. A size up may have been a little longer, which would have been nice; this one was borderline too short on me (I was wearing heels).. The L would probably have been too long. The rouching was very flattering and though I’m normally self-conscious about my belly I wasn’t in this w/ Spanx. I received TONS of compliments and I didn’t see anyone else in this dress. I wore this to a State Governor’s Inaugural Ball and saw plenty of other dresses I had considered on RTR; I’m glad I went with this one! Lastly (but not least), this dress was VERY comfortable to wear and there was never a moment when I felt as though there would be wardrobe malfunction.

Not for the short and plump
Size worn: 44R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I am 5'3 and wear a size 10 (44). The dress was definitely meant for the long and lean. The rouching was somewhat forgiving of my belly and I definitely looked really curvy and sexy. People complimented me all night but if I had it to do all over again I would have swapped the dress out for one better suited for my body type.

Loved this dress
Size worn: 34R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I worked with a stylist to help me find the right dress. This was one that they recommended and it was amazing! It fit well in the bust and waist. The reviews were accurate that it runs a tad long but I'm 5'2" and wore a 5 inch heels and it was fine! I loved the dress and got a lot of compliments.

Beautiful Gown!
Size worn: 34R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I ended up getting this dress because my original dress was unavailable and it was so gorgeous! The 34R fits a size 0 or size 2, but it is really tight on the bust area! I am a B cup and I should have gone up a size. If you have a larger bust, go up a size to be safe. Other than that, I loved the dress! IT fit perfect everywhere else and I got so many compliments! You will not be disappointed with this dress! The 34R hit right at the floor for me (I'm 5'6) so if you plan on wearing heels, you might want to go up a size. I wore flats, so this was not a problem for me.

I wore this dress to the Golden Globes. I loved how soft the fabric felt and how the ruching made it look good from the front and the back. Very comfortable & easy to wear for a long time. There were a few loose beads but it looked fine.

Everyone LOVED the dress and loved my hair and makeup! I looked like an old hollywood starlet at my cousins beautiful wedding and everyone was saying how gorgeous I was! I was def. the talk of the night and everyone looked beautiful but I def. was the STUNNER of the night! YAY RTR! Next time I will get the size 4! 38L!
Size worn: 40L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
They only had a size 36L and 40L available.... The 36L fit great until it got to my boobs and the zipper could have gone up if I forced it but it would have smooched my boobs and i'm 5'9 and it was also to short even in the L. I ended up going with the 40L even though it was big. I wore a strapless bra and that made it fit a little tighter but if I didn't stand straight the strap would have kept falling and it was big on the top of the chest area. You can see in the photos that it hangs a little but it actually looked like it was suppose to. Everyone LOVED the dress and loved my hair and makeup! I looked like an old hollywood starlet at my cousins beautiful wedding! I was def. the talk of the night and everyone looked beautiful but I def. stood out! YAY RTR! Next time I will get the size 4! 38L!

I didn't end up wearing this dress b/c both sizes arrived damaged. However, the dress itself is gorgeous and looks like the picture. The cut and style helps to hide imperfections even though it is very fitted.

It's heavy and a little warm so if you sweat when you drink (I do) remember to take breaks and cool down/freshen up.

Size worn: 38L
Overall fit: True to Size

This dress looks great on. The beading is really beautiful in person. I felt like I was turning heads all night. I asked several people to take pictures including the dress but every one was either blurry or zoomed in to show just faces. The dress definitely benefits from a strapless bra and it's low enough on the side that you'll have to be careful about exposing it ( I used a safety pin).

Would give 5 stars, but disappointed with shipment. The dress that was my size was not sent in the long (which I requested). So, I tried on the backup, which was a size larger, but the bust was damaged.

This dress was absolutely gorgeous however it was really long. I am 5'2 and even with 3" heels it was still way too long. It fits true to size and has some stretch to it. The rouching hides trouble spots. Would work better for taller people.

I never received this dress. There was a mix-up with UPS. Fortunately it was a replacement dress for a different order and I was able to wear one of those. RTR customer service was a huge help, and even though I didn't get to wear this dress, I would suggest renting any dress from RTR based on their customer service alone!

This dress is gorgeous. I am a usually a size 4L but with the different sizing for this gown i received a 40L. It fit perfectly everywhere, the little bit of stretch helps that. The only thing i was a bit concerned with is that i am an A cup chest so it was a little baggy on the sides and was worried about exposing a bit of side cleavage!! Still stunning and received lots of compliments
