I wish they had size 11….

Overall fit: Small

I loved this dress, it looks elegant and is perfect for a work dinner party. I have no waist but this dresses gave me one. I ordered size 42 and 44 (10 and 12). Size 10 looked great in the front, but the back (see picture) the zipper keep moving to one size. Size 12 it was way too big and a little baggy, the sleeves were really long. I guess a size 11 would have been great. In the pictures I’m wearing a size 10.

i was surprised that it was navy, not black but loved it anyway. the sleeves were a little hard to button and the button cover popped off one sleeve at the first try. otherwise it was perfect. seemed true to size (the 34 fit like a 0), length was to the knee. wish i owned it.

The dress is perfect for an Opera Show at The Met. I wore it to go see the Barber of Seville- it was a perfect fancy evening dress. The only thing I found a little bit annoying and scary at the same time was how to put it on - I was afraid to tear the fabric- it can get a little complicated. Also - *DO NOT* wear a padded strapless bra with this dress - I wore a thin strapless and it was perfect. It was freezing in NYC that weekend so I ended up wearing boots with the dress and tossed the tights. I wore size 36 because they didn't have the smaller size available. The sleeve length was a little to long for me (I'm short - 5'2'').

I wore this to the Directors reception at the Yacht Club I received so many compliment and I felt very good in the dress. I was so glad that I ordered the 42 in addition to the 40. I have been wearing size 8 with other RTR dresses, but this one runs very small in the waist and was way to tight to zip up at my 34D breast. Having to wear the next size made it a little long both in the length of the dress but in the sleeve length. But I loved it and might rent it again.

The dress is not as sheer on as it looks in the picture. I was more "covered up" than most others at this event. The back detail is nice, a little "business in the front, party in the back" dress. It is a very pretty dress.

This dress was fitted without being too tight. Came to about mid-thigh on me, but I am tall. The fitted waist and bodice are very flattering, and the skirt is cut at the perfect angle -- a very slight A. Would definitely rent again.

I picked out this dress and found out later that my event would be a little more casual than I was anticipating. I dressed it down by pairing it with black riding boots and sparkly black tights. Got lots of compliments! :) The long sleeves are nice for cold weather but the dress is not overly warm once you get indoors. The skirt is narrow; I have curvier hips and needed a control garment to fit the skirt in my regular size. The lining was a touch clingy on me. The notes recommend a strapless bra, but I was able to get away with a low-back style with clear straps.

I have slim hips and am 5'6" tall. The size 0 was a perfect fit in every way. The length was perfect. It was neither too lose or too tight. I wore it for 8 hours and was perfectly comfortable the whole time. I got tons of compliments on the dress. Of course I told everyone about your website, my daughter told me.

The material doesn't stretch at all. It runs very true to size so I didn't have a problem but if you're between sizes I'd definitely go with a larger size to maybe give yourself some extra room. The lining tended to move over to one side no matter what I did--I eventually had to use fashion tape to keep it in place.

This dress was my third choice for NYE but I'm so glad I went with it. The dress reminded me of a Downtown Abbey era and the long sleeves were enough to keep me warm but sexy being sheer. The fit was enough for definition but not too tight where eating would make you uncomfortable. I actually wore pasties with this dress as the style didn't call for cleavage and my bandeau bra showed in the back. I paired the dress with a grey cutout clutch, black tights and heels.

This dress is extremely accurate to the description given on the website! I loved this dress! The only thing is, you can't wear "normal undergarments" with it. I had to wear a strapless bra to prevent the bra being seen on the cutout in the back. It should hit you just above your knee and is perfect for a formal event. So elegant and tons of people asked where I got it! Love love love. It's true to size.

The sleeves are a bit long and the fabric isn't too forgiving. If you have hips it will be tighter around that area. Since I'm only 5'2", I wish this came in petite! The top is a little larger than I would like and a little longer than is ideal. However overall I did like this dress! I got comments and like the whole dress style. I would recommend it.

Modest & Chic!

Size worn: 40
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
I loved the vintage, yet classy feel to this dress. My one qualm was that it was a bit on the large side. I think it could have been a lot more flattering. I am a size 6 in dresses and based on other reviews got the size 40 (4), and it was still slightly loose. Though it made for a more comfortable night since I didn't have to wear any shape wear. With such a beautiful and intricate waistband, I would have thought it would have been more tapered in the middle. Didn't show off the curves as much as I would have liked. The fabric is great and I absolutely loved the sleeves! I paired it with nude heels, which worked perfectly!

Received this as a backup. I received a ton of compliments and felt great! Here are some details: Fit--as noted in the details, this is a narrower cut on the bottom. My measurements are 41-30-40. It was snug in the bust and hips but it wasn't too tight. Overall it fit nicely and was very flattering. Materials and condition-the color is a deep navy with beautiful waist detailing (waist detail is part of the dress-not a separate belt). The back detail with the keyhole and exposed satin is really lovely. The chiffon was just a little worn looking on the left cuff but it was barely noticeable. All in all-would definitely recommend!

Such an elegant dress

Size worn: 38
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
I did not have a lot of time to get ready--I was running late from work to get to a party--so I just threw on the size 38 (the 36 was my back-up) because a fair number of reviews said the dress ran small, particularly in the hips. The 38 worked but was a bit loose around my mid-section and breasts. I *think* the 36 would have been better fitting in the top, but may have been too small in the hips since the 38 seemed to fit perfectly around my hips. But, again, I was rushing so I just didn't have enough time to try the 36 on. I was happy with the 38. The dress is so easy to wear, very comfortable, and so very elegant. I felt pretty in it--even without having time to re-do my makeup or create an updo with my hair. In fact, I felt so pretty in this dress that I imagine I'll rent it again. The decoration around the waist is attached to the dress and isn't too tight. The opening in back adds just a touch of sexiness, and while the hips are somewhat narrow, the dress does have some give and stretches a bit as you wear it.

i wore this dress for a baptism

Size worn: 38
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Other
I read that this dress runs large. I am usually a true 4 sometimes a 6. when I read that it runs large instead of ordering an extra size in the 6 i went with the 2 instead and i ended up wearing the 2. my butt and thighs would have been more comfortable in the 4 but the top was totally too big. especially in the back where the zipper ends to the open back detail, there was large gaps with the size 4 and usually i am pushing it in a size 4. so i wore the 2 and dealt with it being a little snug in the booty area. not the most comfortable dress because the lining and the overlay dont work together nicely. also it is ANNOYING as heck to take on and off, you have to put it over your head and avoid sticking your head through the back opening and risk messing up hair and makeup just to get it over your head. overall i want thrilled with the dress but it was one of those i dont care events so it didnt matter too much. just something to put on.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small

I am a pretty standard 8, sometimes sizing up or down depending on the designer. I ordered the (converted) 8 and 10, and I couldn't get either of them over my hips. The dress is pretty, but it is VERY plain... it definitely needs a statement necklace or something. I would even suggest a different belt or sash type situation to go over the embroidery. I didn't wear this and just picked something out of my closet instead... what a disappointment.

This was my first RTR and it was fabulous. Loved the style of the dress and received many compliments. I would say it runs slightly large as I got a 40 for backup, wore the 38 and likely would have had a perfect fit with a 36... The 38 fit well enough that it wasn't worth exchanging. Super comfortable and easy to dance the night away in!
