With my linebacker back n shoulders, the top of the gown was fitted (no bra worn), as the night progressed it loosened. The hip area was loose but allowed movement for dancing. Luv RTR.

Beautiful dress that was fun to wear!
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size

The sleeves run very small. I never thought I had fat arms until I tried to wriggle into the size 4. Thankful for the backup size 6! Arms were still quite small but everything else fit perfectly. I especially appreciated the length. I am 5'7" and have a long torso so shorter dresses just look inappropriate on me! This was a perfect length and hit just above the knee. Thanks RTR!

Getting complimented by the bride
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
Perfect dress! So classy, but sexy and flattering too. Paired perfectly with black heels and really didn't need any additional jewelry or anything. Read the reviews and decided to go a size smaller than I normally would. Got a 4 as back up--both fit, but the two was the best fit. I think the 0 would have been an absolute perfect fit although based on other reviews, the arms may have been too small. I didn't have any issues with the arms being too tight in the 2 and I felt like the dress was made for my body! I didn't want to take it off and had compliments all night. I will without a doubt rent this dress again for the next wedding or formal function I have!

I am 5'8 and 113 lbs and either a size 2 or 4, and I was pleasantly surprised that the 2 fit great. I was looking for a long sleeve dress because of the cold weather and this dress is even more beautiful in person. As always, customer service was great and this dress was even brand new with the tags still on. I received so many compliments on this dress!

I normally wear a 12 but as an ex swimmer and current weight lifter my arms and shoulders were too big for the 12 so I wore the 14. It was big around the waist but people didnt notice because the dress was so stunning. Enjoyed it very much!

if the sleeves would have not been so tight on the 10 it would have been the perfect fit then the shoulders would have stayed up more...but I had my slimming Spanx on and it had the straps so I just let them show which really didn't take away from the dress at all.......thanks RTR I will never sew or buy another dress you are now my reason for attending more functions.......I also recommended you to one of my co workers and she so loved her dress for the Black Tie Gala

It's a skin hugger yet flattering and forgiving at the same time. The neck line is gorgeous. I wore this to a black tie and was not at all underdressed. It is an eye catcher! It was comfortable. Showed off my curves, it's sexy but conservative all at the same time. Love love love!

I rented this gorgeous dress for a baptism reception and I have never felt more beautiful in a dress than I did in this dress. The fit was amazing. It was super comfortable and I got so many compliments on it. I usually wear between and 8 and a 10 in dresses but I ordered the dress in a 10 and a 12 knowing that designer dresses usually run small. I ended up wearing the 12 even though the 10 fit me like a glove because the sleeves were so narrow. This lace has NO give at all so the sleeves were very tight. I opted for comfort over size and I am so glad I did. Rent this dress - you will not be sorry.

OMG
Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
First, let me state that RTR has to be the most dedicated, awesome company. In the midst of a hurricane, which I FULLY comprehend after living through Katrina, they shipped me my dresses overnight airmail. I was headed out shopping 2 days prior to a destination wedding to look for a mother of the groom dress, and I received the email that my dresses were on the way! This company ROCKS! Having sang their praises, now let me critique this dress. Perfect. Elegant. I felt like a star. The wedding was at a venue in New Orleans, and there were hundreds of candles. The beading on this dress picked up all the flickering light and was twinkling away. It is a substantial dress with boning, lined extremely well, and slightly drapes on the shoulder (I wore a VS bra with clear non-slip straps so it was not a problem at all!). Beautiful, glamorous, and comfortable! I danced away to all sorts of music. Compliments galore. Gorgeous. Loved it 100%. Thank you RTR, for your customer service and tremendous selection of dresses!!!

It made my night to have a VERY well dressed woman stop to compliment me & comment on my dress!
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size

I wore this to a military cocktail reception in Washington, D.C. What a spectacular dress. It felt tight for about the first hour (I was the first one to wear it), then was perfect the rest of the night. It also felt heavy on the hanger, but not at all when it was on. The length was just right, and the way it fit and hangs really accentuated the few curves I have. It felt like such an 'of the moment' dress and I could not have been happier with it. My husband kept repeating, "You look SO nice!" This is a dress I wish I had in my closet!!

The fit wasn't too tight, very comfortable. The shoulders were much lower than in the picture but it still looked great. It was heavier than I thought it would be but I didn't feel weighted down. There were small loops at the top on the inside so you could hang the dress. They kept coming out through the night. Despite the little issues, I would wear this dress again.

Not worn, tight sleeves
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
This was my back-up dress. I tried it on at the showroom and it sort of fit, so I thought I should get it in case my first choice didn't fit (I didn't get to try it on). The dress sent seemed to fit tighter than the sample tried on one week earlier. The sleeves don't seem to be sized properly, they were much too tight at the upper arm. They were so tight that I couldn't get the shoulders of the dress up onto my shoulders. Also, the cut of the dress body iseemed very straight top to bottom, so wasn't very flattering to my figure. Since my first choice fit and was more figure flattering I went with it.

Complimented by the bride - perfect cool weather dress for a wedding!
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is stunning and romantic in person: beautiful bead and lace detailing, very flattering neckline. With the help of customer service and reviews, I went with my normal size 8 and size 10 for backup, based on all the reviews of right sleeves. While I generally a very classic size 8, i found that this dress was not as fitted as I wanted it to be. The sleeves were right, but the body of the dress was too loose. Nevertheless I loved the look of the dress and got compliments all night.

I was nervous, I normally wear a 12 but I didnt want this to be tight in anyway. The 14 was perfect...so comfortable. The arms are a bit snug but I have smallish arms so it didn't bother me at all. I felt so glamorous in this dress. Great construction but you do have to be careful of snags, etc. So happy I did this. I will absolutely rent again!

Perfect for an October wedding!
Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I tried the 10 and 12. Sleeves of the 12 were more comfortable, but the body of the dress was a little too big. The 10 fit like a glove. I have a large bust and large hips, but a smaller waist, and it hugged all the right places! Great quality dress and very comfortable, except the sleeves. They were a little tight, but the material relaxed the longer I wore it. I didn't have a full range of motion, but I was able to eat and dance pretty comfortably after an hour or two. Definitely need a strapless bra. I felt beautiful, and got lots of compliments!

Not satisfied
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
The shell of the dress is technically well-constructed - lace and beading structure is very sturdy, material is high quality - but then I put it on. For the retail price, I'd expect it to wear much better. - The sleeves are SMALL - I have a very thin upper body and still had to work the sleeves up inch by inch over my arms. - The body fits decently well, although some extra fabric in the back - The straps for hanging are not well placed - I constantly had to keep tucking them in. It's a beautiful dress in theory, but if it doesn't fit you like a glove, it doesn't fit.

Dressy with lace sleeves that don't stretch
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This dress has a really nice neckline and nice shape. But there is beading on the lace which made it dressier (and maybe more matronly) than I expected. The real downside for me was that, as other reviewers said, the lace on the sleeves doesn't stretch, so I couldn't zip it up myself. I normally never have a hard time zipping dresses myself. I normally wear a 4 or 6 and the 4 was the right size.

The dress itself was actually a little big but the lace on the arms has no give what so ever.
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
The arms were so tight I couldn't get it on. The rest of the dress was roomy and almost big. You really have to have very thin arms to make this dress work. If I had sized up the dress would have been swimming on me. I wish the lace had more of a stretch like the Nicole Miller lace dresses tend to. In jeans I wear a 10 and in dresses I almost always wear an 8.

If you have an athletic build this may not be the dress for you. I couldn't get my arms in it. I own several dresses by Carmen Marc Valvo in size 10 & 12 and I couldn't wear this dress. I wore the back-up that I ordered.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This was supposed to be my back-up dress, but I loved it so much I had to wear it. Wore this for a fancy anniversary party for my husband's work. Totally on-trend with the lace detail, sexy without showing too much; it's definitely body-con but still elegant. My only complaint was that the sleeves were VERY tight and a little itchy (and I have skinny arms!).

Pretty dress but had some issues
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
Sorry for no picture, but I ended up wearing my backup dress from RTR. I took an 8 with a 10 as back up. Both were fine in the length but the sleeves were REALLY tight. My arms are not big and this was just uncomfortable. This is a dress which also looks much better with spanx to keep everything nice and firm. Not a bad dress, but tight lace on the sleeves was just too much to handle. I am glad I spent the extra $ for the back up dress

A bit small in the shoulders/arms
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress is a bit longer than what I normally wear. I think it's more appropriate for an older woman or a more conservative dresser than myself. It fit a bit small, especially in the shoulders/arms. I do have athletic shoulders/arms but I could barely get the dress over them while it fit in the waist/hips.

Beautiful dress; not a perfect fit
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small

Beautiful dress with elegant detail; but I found the fit to be a bit off -- for myself at least. The body fits true to size, but the sleeves I found to be very tight and short. For me, the fabric between the elbow and armpit felt extremely constricted. Unfortunately, had to return this time.

This dress was great! I received many compliments on it.
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress seemed to 'stretch out' as the evening wore on. I probably could have worn the 6 but I doubt it would have been roomy enough in the bust for me. Also, it was a little long (I like my dresses to hit just above the knee). Probably could have Fashion Taped up the hem but didn't think of that until later. You need to wear a strapless bra because your shoulders are exposed; however, the neckline fit perfectly and remained 'in place' all evening. The lining of the dress matched my skin to a tee. I will definitely use Rent the Runway again, and have recommended to a few friends!
