Beautiful dress - made me stand out in a crowd!
I absolutely loved this dress and received so many compliments on it the entire night I wore it. The dress was a perfect choice for a fall wedding. It fit true to size (I sized up for my second choice based on other reviews, but didn't even need to try it on). The length was different for me, but for a formal event having the dress hit at my knees felt very appropriate. I had read comments about some saying that the sleeves on the dress could be tight - I did not have that problem at all; the only time that the dress felt a bit tight was when I sat down for dinner (hugged my thighs a bit, but I do have a curvy figure). It was not uncomfortable, just noticeable for myself. I was able to dance and walk around without any problems. I would absolutely rent this one again - and plan to rent it in a different color for a spring wedding that is coming up.

Wish this dress was mine!
This dress is fab-u-lous. I wore it for an industry awards event in NYC. It was cocktail attire, but some people go formal and some people roll in after work, so the dress runs the gamut. This dress was PERFECT. The fabric is dressy enough, and the cut is feminine and formal without that low-cut-, red lace, too short trying too hard look. The color is gorgeous, esp for those with light coloring like the model. Love, love, love this dress

The many compliments I received wearing this dress had my cheeks aching from smiling!
Overall it was a beautifully crafted dress! I received a lot of compliments in it! The only thing is the dress is a tight fit in the hip so if you're a hippy girl size up.

Classy. Great material, pattern and colors. Received many compliments. Love it! I like that the length is just at or below the knee. Not too short.

Sophisticated, classy, and unique dress.
I just loved this dress. I felt totally special and beautiful in it. I received tons of compliments. The sleeves are tiny bit tight, causing a little difficult raising your arms all the way over your head, but I was able to dance in it without any issues. Super flattering. It hits just above the knee--a great length. And it has pockets! I was incredibly sad to say goodbye to it.

Sophisticated with edge
The fit on this is amazing! I have larger hips and it was a little tight when I sat down but overall the cut is great if you're a little curvy like me. The print is gorgeous. It's not too bright but it's a definite stand out dress! I wore this to a wedding in NYC and got tons of compliments. Paired it with the Lauren Merkin clutch and Kendra Scott earrings with dark green nail polish, smokey winged eye make up and nude lispstick with slicked back hair in a bun. Super sophisticated and glamorous with a little rock and roll edge. Already thinking of renting this again for future events.

This dress was great and I received so many compliments all night. It was a little bulgy in the middle but that didn't bother me. It also has pockets which are cool! Definitely recommend this dress. I also rented the necklace and earrings which were perfect.

Everyone thought I looked amazing. I received so many compliments!
It was a little tight in the sleeves and the material a little thick. I did a lot of dancing and was in southern humidity, so I was a little hot. But I don't regret wearing the dress. It was a little short on me, so I had it hemmed to make it a more "fun" length.

Absolutely Stunning! This dress is perfection.
I wore this dress to shoot a campaign for Komen, I needed something that had structure and texture as it was shot from a profile angle. It is so classy and cut beautifully. This dress is truly a piece of art!! I suggest going up a size for your backup, I found the 0 slightly tight around the bust, but it fit perfectly everywhere else. The 2 was too big all around for me personally. The dress did have a slight tear in the back slit, but since I only wore it for the hour long shoot it was not an issue for me. I will be waiting for this one to go up for sale!!

Beautiful color and pattern!
UPDATE: I wore this dress a second time as I was selected by Crain's Business Chicago as their August "Business Model". Thank you RTR for a beautiful dress for the photo shoot!! Photo credit Shane Collins. I have to say, I am OBSESSED with this dress and it was PERFECT for taking pictures for my blog (www.the-fbombs.com)! I used my free birthday dress (seriously, Go PRO if you haven't already you get a free dress on your birthday!!) and I have to say, I could not have been happier. The color is not only stunning in pictures but it's beautiful in person, the pattern is wonderful, it is tasteful and modest (PERFECT to wear at a wedding!!) and the best part!? It has POCKETS!! All in all, rent the dress!! I have nothing bad to say about it at all. It runs very true to size (I could have worn the 2 but the 4 was just a tad more comfortable) and you will LOVE wearing it all night long!!

Loved this dress. Have worn it in both colors and would do it again!
The bust is tight. If you get the right bra to shove them in the dress is effortlessly amazing, so anyone over a DD (the RTR size chart does not have DDD in it) be warned. The pockets are a huge advantage and the dress does allow you to drink a little and not look bloated due to the miraculous darting. I would wear this again, I just wish my bust was a little more comfortable. Not a single complaint otherwise.

I was sent this dress when a backup order didn't come through at the last minute. I didn't end up wearing it, as I preferred the other dress, but if I had an event, I definitely would've worn this one. (Great for hiding the hips!)

Loved It!
Wore this to an after-work awards gala/board meeting for a professional association. Attire was "business/cocktail". I felt that this dress was absolutely perfect. The fabric is very elegant and the color is gorgeous. I am short-waisted and typically have issues with fit through the middle but this fit very well. Loved the pockets, which somehow do not make the skirt bulge. The sleeves, as mentioned in other reviews, do cut a bit but it wasn't a deal breaker, I would consider buying this dress because it's not trendy or boring-feel like you could wear it year after year and it wouldn't lose relevance. As with all the dresses I've rented through RTR, received many compliments.

Gorgeous. Structured. Classic.
I rented this dress for a wedding, and I have to say, it was absolutely perfect. I wore the size 0, because with the pockets and the structure of the dress, it was important to have a form fitted waistline. My only complaint is that my size 34D chest caused some difficulty with sitting comfortably at certain points. Regardless of that, the dress was so gorgeous - it made me feel like a million bucks. I would 100% rent this dress again, and look forward to renting this same dress in the additional pink color later on.

This dress is absolutely beautiful! I wore this dress to my daughter's bridal shower.
This dress fit me perfectly! I ordered a 4 and a 6. I tried them both on and the size 4 fit me like a glove. It was very comfortable and very flattering . This was an absolutely beautiful dress!

Wore this to a charity concert and felt glamorous and comfortable all evening.
Totally size down. I normally wear an 8 and the 6 fit me perfectly. This dress is very comfortable sitting, standing and running across busy streets. And it has awesome pockets - bonus! On my way to UPS to send it back and wishing I had more time with this rental. Thanks RTR - great service!

Great color and it has pockets!
Loved this dress! I wore the 4 but I think a 6 would have been a little more comfortable for me. It is snug on top with a little more room on the bottom. Also I think the waist would have fallen a tad lower with a larger size. Still loved it! Customer service was AMAZING, the original dress I received seemed like it was not pressed properly so I called and explained...no question asked and they shipped me a new dress to my hotel overnight at no charge! The new dress was pressed perfectly! The first picture shows the color much better...I wish I added a chunky statement necklace!!

lovely, tasteful dress
I really enjoyed wearing this dress to a religious service. It was very appropriate for that - dressy and pretty yet conservative. The fabric is beautiful - color is great, has a sheen and a bit of texture with the pattern. A few little bothersome details - the neck is high and you can feel it when you sit down, and the inside slip is a bit tight. But you can't see those issues and they were only minor irritants.

The sizing between top and bottom is wild.
I love this dress. The color, print and material is perfection. The sizing is unfortunate. The size that fits up top won't fit on bottom and vice versa. Ah well. Can't win 'em all.

Classy and sophisticated
Rented this for my friends catholic wedding which I was a reader. It was classy and conservative for the occasion but I still felt beautiful in it. I loved the the fabric. Giving this 4 stars because it has no stretch. Fits pretty true to size but since I knew I would be dancing all night I opted to size up. I'm 5'4" so this hit me right above my knees. I also liked that this dress had pockets!

Perfect for a fall wedding!
I wore this dress to a fall wedding and it was great. It fit great from the bust up. However, the lining was tighter than the dress and it was a a bit too tight in the waist and butt (I have hips and butt). There was clearly more room in the dress of the dress. I would wear it again, but would size up, not down, as the site says. Also I wore a regular bra and was fine. Not sure why the site doesn't recommend one.

Very classy and comfortable dress! The pattern and material don't really come through in the picture well, but it is beautiful. The only warning is I felt it was a little short when I sat down, but at 5'11", lots of things feel too short! I am sad to put this in the mail today. I rented the Kenneth Lane deep blue drop earrings as well and thought they worked great with the dress.

Trendy and cute fit!
The 4 was a smidge too big on me and the 2 was just a wee bit tight, but I wore the 2 because the fit looked better. However, after dinner I was really wishing I had the 4 in my car to change into!! :) The sleeves are very cute, but your arm range is limited. It wasn't the most comfortable dress I've ever worm, but it was really cute and different and I was very happy with my rental!

This dress made me feel so glamorous!
At first the dress was a little tight at the arms but once I had it on for a few hours it gave a lot more. It truly did fit like a glove and was one of the more comfortable dresses I've worn. The color was great as well, not too blue just perfect for a fall wedding in Chicago! I'd honestly rent this dress again I loved it so much.

Perfect
I wore this dress for a wedding and it was absolutely perfect. Besides the fact that it looks great, it was incredibly comfortable. I'm always concerned about bust-fit, but this was great. If I stretched in certain ways, I did feel that it got a bit tight in the bust area, but otherwise it fit fantastically.

Beautiful dress, would rent again. Much prettier in person!
I ended up wearing the 10; but the 8 and 10 were very similar. I went with the 10 so I did not have to wear any spanx and since it was a catholic mass, the 10 gave me a little more ability to kneel comfortably during the service. The color is stunning, and my bf did not like the dress online, but loved it in person! I got a ton of compliments!

Perfect dress for a daytime party.
I am usually a 4, sometimes a 6. The 4 fit perfect. I wore it to my daughters 5th grade speech and then on to my stepdaughters bridesmaids luncheon. Received many compliments and knew no one else would be wearing the same dress to the party! I am a 34D and it was not too tight. Perfect length for my age. Fabric was thick and beautiful. The colors are amazing.

This dress felt great on and was easy to dance in!
This dress was perfect for me and for the occasion, an outdoor wedding. My hips are wider than my bust and the style accommodated that beautifully. I got lots of compliments! The fabric was beautiful and vibrant. the dress arrived in perfect condition, ready to wear. Having a second size and a backup dress took all the stress out of the online selection process.

Great dress and beautiful color!
I had to wear the next size up because I am really bottom heavy. It is a pencil style skirt so is a little tight on the bottom. The top was a little big but not horrible. Overall really liked this dress and got a lot of compliments!!
