Customer service saved the day

I had originally rented two different dresses for my husband's ball, however both of them had issues and I couldn't wear them. Called customer service and got Colleen who was nothing short of saintly in her patience and understanding and helped me pick out back up dresses which she sent overnight to me. This one was the winner and I'm so glad I got it. Fit like a glove, was very comfortable and surprisingly light. The material looks silver in the picture, but definitely had more of a silver/champagne tone in person. I got a ton of compliments and felt confident. Photographed well too. I was also the only person in this dress and I saw other dresses I was considering on others throughout the night, so I'm really glad I went with this pick. Only 4 stars because the zipper was a MONSTER to zip up. Dress wasn't tight or ill fitting, but that zipper got stuck on every single fold of that material. That is my only complaint though!

So sad not to be able to wear

The smaller size fit in the hips and the larger only in the bust. Busty girls beware! Otherwise, looks like the picture and very glamorous.

Beautiful but too big on me

This is a beautiful dress, but you'd definitely want the right fit. Just enough shine to be stunning without doing full on sequins. It was comfortable trying it on and I loved the tailoring and one strap look. For me, it just wasn't fitted enough, I got the 4,6 and would've needed a 2. I'm typically about a 4. So I thought it ran a little big. Gorgeous dress, I'd rent it again in the right size.

Seeing several ladies in the same dress

I absolutely loved my dress! The fit was amazing, I received compliments all night long! However, on a different topic, I think it's time all the dresses on this site to retire. So many ladies had on the same dress at the same party, or they had on dresses that were worn last year. I know the whole point of renting from this site is to get something different that no one can find locally. Well little did I know that the dresses are not monitored as for location of delivery. Which means three or more people can have the same dress at the same party.

Absolutely gorgeous dress, wore it to a gala. A 2L was very true to size. At 5'8" the dress was a little long in heels but better than too short!

The perfect gown for my gala!!

I was one of four event chairs for a charity gala which required me to get on stage and speak in front of 600 people, so I needed something glamorous. This dress did not disappoint! I received so many compliments and loved how it looked on me. The color is a gorgeous champagne color and the fit was amazing and hugged all the right curves. I'm definitely sad to have to send it back!

Loved the look of this dress! It is a little snug in the hips, so not great for busting a move, but for an elegant event it is perfect!

Sparkly and flattering but on the short side.

This gown was comfortable and flattering to a curvy body but even in the 14L, the dress was on the short side. I made it work with flat sandals as this was already a replacement. Compliments all night from strangers and friends alike nonetheless.

Beautiful, "Oscar" style dress!!

I loved this dress and truly felt like a million dollars. The dress was true to size and was comfortable to wear. I received many compliments throughout the night. I had a little extra room in my hips/butt area because my hips are narrow; however, with the details of the dress, it wasn't noticeable. I highly recommend!

Dress makes you look & feel like an Oscar statue!!

It runs true to size. I'm 5'3" and 125 pounds, I had 5 in heels on, and the regular still brushed the floor. I had to steam the dress because the bottom hem was wrinkled, so you may need to do that before wearing. Looks so much better than just out of the box! Once on, it was a stunning dress! Received compliments all night!!

I got soooo many compliments!! The fit was a bit loose around my stomach. There is a lot of material so I think if you tend to carry your weight in your tummy you might reconsider this dress, I just sucked it in all night!

Underwhelming

This dress was disappointing. I should have ordered a size down. But others had reviewed it as fitting smaller, that was not the case. It did fit shorter than others, but the waist would run true to size. I didn't wear it for my event.

Stunner! This dress stands out in a crowd!!

Wanted for formal Chrismas party. It seems most go for LBDs for formal affairs. This is a standout in a sea of black. I ordered a size or so bigger than normal. Glad I did. It fit well...but, confortable. I was concerned it may make me look bulky with so much dress. But, I think it was perfect!

Beautiful fabric but needs to be more fitted. The 4 was loose through the mid section and with all of the rouching it needs to fit very snug to look right. Love the dress though!

Felt red carpet ready!

Despite NO time to actually "get ready" for this event, this gown made me feel like a star! I got Compliments all evening and for days after! Truly a show stopper! I did notice part way through the night that there was a separation at one of seams on the back of the dress (near my knees) which was disapointing but I doubt anyone saw. I'm 5'4 and 120 pounds for reference. It was snug across my (very full) hips/butt, not uncomfortable and did not prevente from moving/sitting. I was very happy with the way it fit because in some review photos it looked sloppy, and it was anything but sloppy on me.

Stunning Dress!

Pictures don't do justice to this elegant and extremely beautiful dress! I chose it for a black tie affair and it definitely stands out. The fit for me was a bit large on top so i had to use some fashion tape to prevent it from gapping. The size 4 would of been perfect on top but it didn't fit my hips well. I chose the long and it was right to the floor with 4inch heels. This dress is light and comfortable to wear, it moves with you and it hits in all the right spots to highlight the figure hiding any imperfections. Would highly recommend it!

Awesome Experience!!! This was my first time using RTR. I wore it to my bonus Son's wedding.

The fit was perfect! I was worried about the top fitting as I'm a 36DDD. I actually went into the San Francisco RTR at Nieman Marcus to try on the dress before the event to make sure it fit. The staff at RTR were extremely nice and helpful. Back to the dress and the event- Ladies Be prepared to get it cleaned and pressed. When I received the dress it was very wrinkled and had a weird odor. Once had it cleaned and pressed - I put it on and was quite impressed. No problems in the bust area (I wore a regular bra - just tucked the bare shoulder bra strap under my bra. The length was great. It has a small train in the back - adding to the drama and elegance. I'm 5'4" and wore two inch heels. Finally, ladies be prepare to receive compliments all evening and say "Yes" to this Dress!!

Silver perfect!

All the wedding party had to wear silver. No need to buy, just Rent!!! I ordered a 10 but sent it back for an 8 so it must run big. Needed some help with the zipper, but once in it was very comfortable. I felt beautiful in it. Such nice quality.

This was a great dress, but it ran really short. I'm 5'5" and the hem was not touching the floor even in flats. Order the Long size if you are my height or taller!

Glittery glam

This dress definitely has wow factor. Lots of compliments thrown my way. The dress was comfortable and surprisingly easy to move around in. The only issue I had was that the inner lining was a little torn at the bottom, and at one point my heel got stuck in a rip and almost tripped me. Fit was pretty good, but all of the detailing can make you look a little paunchy around the middle. If you don't mind that, I say it's a solid yes.

Very pretty, but a little too big

Dress fit okay, but midriff area was baggy. It made my midsection look large so I didn't wear it. I think it would have been great one size smaller. Material is very thick and not stretchy.

Best for broad shoulders or large breast-barrow hips

I am a 6- 32 DD (37" around breast), 29" waist, 38" hips. The 6 fit my hips fine, waist was baggy and top was more than a size too large. Had to call for emergency overnight new dress. Definitely only for straight build or inverted triangles. NOT for hour glass or pear. Length was just right for 5'7" if you wear low heels or have shoes worth showing.

Goddess

Overall, I loved this dress! A stranger told me I looked like a Greek goddess. It's tighter in the thighs than in the bust. So I was slightly squeezed at the bottom and loose on top. Only slightly. But my second size was too big all around. The reason for not giving it the full amount of stars is because my particular dress was showing visible signs of wear. Lots of threads sticking out. Some I ignored, some I had to cut off. It also smelled a bit musty and I had to let it air out for a day. But for the most part, I enjoyed my time with the dress.

Dress makes you feel like a goddess!

I ordered a back-up dress, different designer, also size 6. That fit like a glove and was amazing and I'm glad I did so. If this dress had fit, it would have been a tough decision on what to wear because this gown is amazing. The material, the flow.... having said that - the 6 was HUGE!

A Nice Carmen Marc Valvo

A nicely cut dress and the fabric was soft, especially for a metallic color. Good length too. Unfortunately, it's too big in the waist. I'm a size 6 with a 27 inch waist and the fabric just sagged around me.

It was the perfect dress for the Great Gatsby party we attended.

The overall fit was great, except it ran smaller than what I typically wear. It was a little tight around the hip area, but it was flattering for my hourglass shape. It fit well on the shoulder and was the perfect length with a 3"heel.
