Easy elegance, very comfortable, received a ton of complements!
I don't generally go for a dress this conservative, but I needed something for an event day-of, so I popped into the RTR Chicago store. Green is my favorite color (and it was a Michigan State Spartan event), so this dress was perfect! Extremely comfortable, effortlessly elegant, and a big hit for the night in general – if I do say so myself :)

Beautiful gown with a stunning fit, made my first RTR experience worth the unexpected speed bumps (:
I originally had ordered the Badegley Mischka Shoreline Gown to wear to my boyfriends Navy Ball this past Saturday selecting to have a four day rental (Thursday-Sunday) On Wednesday night I had received an email saying that the Shoreline Gown in my size had been returned damaged and would no longer be available in my size in time, and they would be sending my two other gowns instead. Being the OCD person I am, I started to freak out and was worried that I was not going to like either of the other dresses. I came in contact with Mary-Kate H. in costumer service and she was so sweet and more then willing to work with me! She even offered to send me another gown immediately if the others didn't end up working. Fortunately, I received this gown and it was absolutely stunning! It was a little tight around my gluts and quads which caused it to come up a tad bit when I stood up after sitting, so I would just pull it down. I wore 2inch nude heels, which made me wish it was a tad bit longer, but then again, I am rather tall and it still did not really reveal my feet. Overall, this gown worked out perfectly and I felt beautiful!!

Stunning gown.
Loved the dress -- great color and fit, I don't like skin tight dresses so for this I ordered the 6 & 8 and decided with the 8 so that i didn't have to suck in all night -- would recommend for anyone going to black tie etc. Very comfortable. I'm also 5'7" and I ordered the longer option because I knew I was going to wear the 3 inch heels. Was not too long at all.

Beautiful color of green - would have loved to have worn it.
I wear a size 2-4 in all dresses. I'm 5'7, about 130 lbs, small busted, but a little hippy. I could not fit the size 2 over my hips! Not a good dress if you are anything but stick thin.

Classic and elegant. Color was fantastic.
I rented this dress for a formal ball. And I got repeated compliments on the color and the simplicity but classiness of the dress. It was fantastic. And true to size. I'm either a 2 or a 4, and rented from the store, so I took the 2 that was available. It was long enough I could wear heels with it and not have my feet showing- and I'm 5'6".

Received so many compliments!! Beautiful dress!
I absolutely loved this dress. I could have worn the 6R but the 8R was more roomy. The only con would be the bra strap holders rubbed my shoulders raw to the point of bleeding. I would recommended wearing band aids over them!

Such a beautiful dress - and got it as a replacement!
My bust size is actually a 32GG (European Sizing) for those ladies who are DD+. This dress was actually sent to me as a replacement for the original dress I ordered and I ended up loving it! It fit perfectly on my chest and my hips without looking inappropriate. I didn't want to return it!

Pretty Dress
I rented this gown for a black tie event. It is a beautiful green color and I got lots of compliments! It is true to size. I am 5'10" and 160pounds and the 10L fit perfectly. I could have gotten away with the 8L but it would have been a lil too snug for my personal preference. If it was a stretchy material (like that scuba material) an 8 would have worked. But it's a nice crepe material with minimal stretch. It fit me perfectly. As far as the cons, the lining hung from beneath the dress in the front and I had to use safety pins to pin it up. Also, a portion of the hem in the back of the dress was unraveled and I had to use safety pins to pin it up. Lastly, I am 5'10" and the 10L was barely long enough. I was forced to wear a 2" heel to keep the dress from appearing too short. The "long" version of this dress would be ideal for someone 5'8" but not for someone 5'10" unless you plan to wear flats or 1-2" heels. Aside from this, I loved the dress and got a ton of compliments!!!!!

Perfect fit with 3 inch heels. Sooooo comfortable too! I loved being able to wear a normal bra and the clips built into the dress to hold the straps were a bonus.

Perfect for our black tie event. I usually wear a 2, I wore a 4 in this and it felt pretty snug in the hips. Order up if you are curvy.

Stunning color
I got a ton of compliments, especially on the color. Dress needed just a bit of steaming as the fabric is a little more prone to wrinkling. Shoulders have neat little snaps to hold a standard bra strap in place, so no need for constantly checking to make sure bra strap isn't showing. This is a comfy dress-- easy to dance in. It does run short in my opinion. I wore 2 inch heels and couldn't have worn anything taller than that.

In a room of black, wear green!
Dress was true to size, but very fitted. With spanx, I felt very confident. This dress was sexy without being low cut, backless, or exposing any skin. I wore a racerback bra, which helped with comfort. The dress did arrive very wrinkled and even with a great deal steaming, still looked a little wrinkled. The color was fabulous and a true kelly green.

The perfect compliment that lead to compliments!
I wore this dress for my junior prom. As a 5'9, 124 lb girl wearing three inch heels, the 2L just barely skimmed the floor, which was perfect for me! I'm not sure how well it would fit if you were taller. The dress is very form-fitting, but also fairly elastic and forgiving. It is not a dress to blend in with, but it will let you stand out in the best way!

Eye catching Emerald
This dress was absolutely gorgeous. The color was exactly what I was looking for as was the fit and shape of the dress. It hugged my curves perfectly and did not show any imperfections. I was super nervous to try it on because I am a pear shape and I normally feel like my thighs and butt look huge in dresses. So I crossed my fingers and relied on the reviews on RTR to keep me from being anxious. And I'm so glad I did. I was amazed. My body looked like an hour glass. Everyone loved it. I normally try on size 4 or 6 dresses so thankfully I was able to get a second dress for free. I am tall so I went with 4L and 6L. The 4L was perfectly fitted. A little tight around the bum area but that's usual for me lol. The 6L looked good too; just a little too loose in the torso area so I went with the 4L. The color is stunning and definitely a huge compliment receiver. I was complimented all night on how beautiful both the dress and I looked. I felt super comfortable and confident. The only con I have is that I have to send it back! Definitely renting from here again!

Comfortable and elegant dress in an eye catching color!
Fantastic color, length was perfect. It was form fitting, but quite comfortable. This dress is conservative sort-of-speak, but its demur, curve hugging silhouette makes it appropriate for a variety of events. Did I mention the color is amazing!! I have no cons, the dress fit exactly as expected.

Appropriate but still sexy
The 4 fit true to size, but was definitely form fitting. I am 5'4" and wore 4" heels and it was just barely long enough. A good dress for events where you don't want to show too much skin but still want to look good!

The crepe material held up nicely all evening. A little bit tight across the midsection, but not bad. Excellent choice for a formal event.

Only ok for me.
I have a larger hips/butt and a smaller waist and this dress did not give me the curvy effect that I had anticipated. It was very tight through the hips and baggy in the waist, just didn't work for my body type. Loved the green color though and lengthwise it was fine for me with 3.5" heels.

Dress fit perfectly
This dress fit very true to size and was stunning. This is a true kelly green gown and was fitted but had a little stretch in the material so you could easily move. It was a little tight in the hips but as I wore it throughout the night, it became easier to move in. I'm 5 foot 3 inches and had to wear 4 inch heels and it was still a little long. Would definitely recommend this dress and RTR to a friend!

The color stood out over all others in my prom group; beautiful with a form fit but is comfortable.
The bust was tight but in good way and same with the back of the dress. It is perfect for someone with a good figure (small waist and hips). I am 5'0'' so I was sad to not see a petite was offered in the two. The petite in the 4 was the perfect length with ~4'' heels. To wear the two I used hem tape which was a struggle but did hold the whole night and was not noticeable at all. The color is beautiful and is paired easily with gold jewelry. The fabric breathes well and stretches to your shape but still has structure.

Dress fit like a glove! I got so many compliments on the color too! I loved it. My ONLY criticism is it shifted in the front a lot so I found that I was readjusting the lining a lot. However, I was also dancing a LOT so that may have had something to do with it. Loved it and highly recommend!

You will stand out in the dress at a black tie gala or wedding, the color is stunning and the shape is very flattering. I am an apple shape and typically wear a 12 but glad I went up to the 14 so I didn't feel self-conscious about my tummy. Received many compliments!

Great dress for a black tie event!
I loved this dress! Form fitting but not super tight. Also loved that I could wear a regular bra with this. The only thing I would have done differently is rent the long. I'm about 5'6 and with heels I think I could have used the extra length.

This dress is absolutely gorgeous. I received so many compliments on the color and it was nice to stand out amongst all the black dresses. I am 5 2' and the dress length was perfect on me with moderate heel. It is a great fit for curvy women.

Rented this for a day to evening wedding. Loved the color and the length. Wish it hid my "don't-want-to-leave-baby-gut" a little more but overall I loved it. It was comfortable to move/dance in and people loved it. Glad I rented this one!

Dress was too large and the fit was not flattering.
I was excited for this dress but, unfortunately, it was too large and long and the material was a lot thicker than I thought it would be, making me look wider/thicker than I am. I didn't feel good wearing it so I ended up running out and buying a dress for the fundraiser event I had to attend. Hope this info helps other petite women who are looking into renting this dress (for reference I'm 5'4, 110 lbs, 34C and usually wear a size 2 in dresses).

RTR Team Review
The fit of this dress is amazing and very flattering! I am wearing a size six in the photo. The dress does fit true to size. The dress is fitted in the mid-section, waist and hips. I recommend curvier women going a size up for their backup size. The fabric does have some stretch to it. This dress is great for any cup size. I am a 36D and felt very comfortable in the dress. The dress can be worn with a standard bra. This is the perfect dress for a formal party. Pair with black heels and gold jewelry.

Like a glove -- but not for hot weather!
This dress was so fabulous, and I received so many compliments on it. The green is a gorgeous lush emerald -- a little hard to capture in photos! I actually ended up wearing the smaller size in this, so that it would have that snug, fits-like-a-glove fit. It is cut close to the body, flaring out at the knees like a "mermaid" style gown, so to sit I had to hitch the skirt up a little! I'm 5'8" and the Long version ended up perfect with my moderate 2.5"ish heels. I think if I had 3" heels it would've been the perfect length. Down-sides? The dress is nice and thick, which you want in such a slim fitting dress, but it was heavy and got pretty stuffy as the venue heated up. I was glad the event was indoors -- I would have died if I'd had to be in the hot sun wearing this!! It did arrive with a small flaw -- a part of the seam near the bottom was missing a section of thread. I pinned it, no problems! I did have to adjust my bra straps to accommodate the cut-away arms, but no big problem there. Overall, I was very happy with this rental and was sad to send it back!

I can't begin to tell you how many compliments I received wearing this dress as Mother of the Bride!
This dress is very fitted, so every curve shows. The lining and fabric make for a "heavy" dress for summer, but I was fine b/c I'm cold-natured. I absolutely loved it!

Felt constricting, heavy, still a beautiful dress
I was sent this as a back-up dress because they did not have my available dress in the back-up size. It felt very heavy on and almost overwhelmingly so, where I just want to take it off after about 5 minutes. Looked beautiful though and to be fair they did a decent job picking a replacement for me considering I missed the emails to choose another dress. Luckily my "regular size" worked in the dress that I actually chose and this was a little large on me so I wouldn't have worn it anyways.

Amazing fit!
I absolutely loved this dress. It was super comfortable and the color was amazing. I got a lot of compliments and felt great in it all day long. It ran true to size but was a little short for me. I am 5'7" and wore a 3.5in heel and I probably could have done a long version.

Beautiful color!
I got so many compliments on this dress and it was so comfortable. I rented the 6 & 8 and went with the 8 since it was more comfortable for my chest. The length was also a bit longer. I wore short 1 1/2 inch heels and I'm 5'11" to begin with. The dress didn't touch the floor but that was perfect for dancing all night at the wedding! It arrived a bit wrinkled and didn't unwrinkle beforehand but I was nervous to iron as I have done that in the past with dresses and ruined them. Overall a great rental for tall ladies!
