The dress fit perfectly! I was complimented all night! What girl doesn't like that! I rocked it!

I like that I could get it in long, so I could wear my heels. It was a little loose, in the back under the "shoulderless" arm, but not sagging at all. No bra was showing. Other than that, it was perfect. Thanks so much!

The regular dress was too short, so I used the bigger size for a little bit of length. If you are 5'8", I would highly suggest renting the Long size!

Great option for wedding Chinese banquet

Size worn: 16R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I had a WHOLE bunch of dresses rented for my wedding in NY. Thankfully I stopped by the Henri Bendel RTR show room to try on the dresses I ordered. Thank goodness I tried them on! I found this dress that my sisters wanted me to try on and when they saw me in this they said THIS IS the wedding banquet dress I had to wear. I'm only 5' 1/2" and I was easily dancing and spinning around in 2" heals to 4" heals. The regular length was great for me. One word of caution: As SOON as you get this dress try it on IMMEDIATELY! I took for granted that since I tried this same dress on at RTR's shop in Herni Bendel it would fit me correctly. SO NOT THE CASE! I ended up getting a long for some reason when I really needed a regular. But not to worry! RTR's online customer support swooped into the rescue. They mailed me my wedding day dress to my hotel and it was truly a regular size that fit me perfectly. THANKS RTR!!!!!!

I was unable to wear my RTR dress as the dress that was sent was damaged :(

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
First let me say the RTR folks are great. Customer service was incredible. I ordered a dress Tuesday for a Friday affair. The first dress arrived Wednesday. It was sadly too short (I'm 5'11"). In reading the other reviews some recommended to go a size up to get the dress to hang better, so I swapped for a larger size. The dress was a good length (to my feet and long enough if i wore flats) but the seam was completely detached from the zipper :( So I was unable to wear either dress.

How I felt the minute I put it on.

Size worn: 16WR
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I felt some good in the dress. It was a formal work event and was just the right amount of pop and elegance. The event was over 5hrs long and I was comfortable in the dress the entire time. Loved how great the dress photographs as well. I did expect it to be longer so if you want a dress to cover your shoes then you may want to get a long vs regular but if you are doing a bunch of moving then regular length is perfect.

Dress was beautiful , but was really short in the front.

Size worn: 16L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress fit well in the bust area. Being that I am a J cup, this was greatly appreciated. The biggest complaint I had about the dress (and why I'm giving it 3 stars) is that the front was short. The dress on me was nothing like the picture. The front of the dress hit about my ankle, maybe a little lower. That being said I have really wide hips and I think that is why I had issues with the front of the dress. Despite my misgivings I wore the dress (after a quick stop at the shoes store to pick up some gold heels) and everyone thought that I looked great. My husband loved me in the dress and was giving me love eyes all evening so overall everything worked out and I felt good!

Beautiful dress but runs a bit large.

Size worn: 20WR
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I needed a dress last minute for a formal gala, and I thought this dress would be perfect. I have a hourglass figure, so my hips are typically the area I need to be most concerned about with fit. With that in mind, I ordered a 20 with a 22 as the backup. When I went to put on the dress, I realized the top was really big - the dress is pretty much straight down so the hips are as wide as the bust. I needed some serious fashion tape in order to keep from flashing everyone, and I also needed to wear the one shoulder a bit off my shoulder in order to not fall out of the dress. If the material was a bit more stretchy or the dress was cut at bit differently, I wouldn't have had so many issues. I probably should have gone for a 18 as my backup size instead of a 22.

I loved this dress! I was so sad to return it! The length was perfect I'm about 5'4 an I didn't even need to wear heels(but I did anyway). It worked great for Prom! The only thing I didn't like about this dress was that it doesn't hide anything! But I still received complements all night! I will defiantly be renting in the future!

The color/the shoulder embellishment MAKE this dress.

Size worn: 18WL
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The color is rich & just as pictured. It photographs very well even in low-light. I received an endless amount of compliments. I felt like a million bucks, I looked like a million bucks. I ordered a 16L and 18L, I normally wear a 16 and the 16 looked nice but I liked having extra room in the 18 since I was eating dinner at this event. Also if you're a tall lady like myself, I'm 5'10 1/2, invest in the Long version of any dress; even with 3 inch heels the dress hit perfectly. It wasn't long enough to drag on the floor, but it was long enough that you didn't see the tops of my shoes while I was standing, only walking. The only thing I would let you ladies know is that the dress can be clingy, not like a body con dress (form-fitted), but it's similar to the way silk has a tendency of hugging everything. I would say for a smooth look definitely wear "Spanx" to hold in your "problem" area. I did and I love ALL of the photos from that night! Enjoy ladies, Carmen Mac Valvo is kind with his cuts.

I wore this dress to my cousin's wedding in DC this weekend. The website hardly does the dress justice...it is even more beautiful in person than it is on the site. I fell in love with the dress as soon as I took it out of the box... I just couldn't wait to try it on!!!! It fit perfectly and clung to my body in the all the right places (since it is an A line dress, it was NOT clingy at all on my stomach which is a total plus!!! I hate drawing attention to my belly) also I love that the dress is a little longer in the back and it is SO SOFT. I can't tell you how many people told me they loved my dress and told me how beautiful I looked! I would highly recommend renting this dress for your next event!! :)

This dress was so comfortable and gorgeous. Can't wait to rent again!

Size worn: 16WR
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress is a bright, true red and very soft and comfortable. In looking at the pictures I wish I had worn shape wear but overall I was very happy with it. The 16 was a little tight in the bust but the 18 was way too big in the hips so I just went with it. I will say you don't need to worry too much about the waist measurement as the dress isn't very fitted there. I'm slightly under 5'6" and in these pictures I have my shoes off and you can see the length. It is full length but not floor length. I highly recommend this dress for any formal occasion - I wore it to the Dallas Margarita ball, a black tie event, and fit right in!

This dress made me feel beautiful!

Size worn: 16WR
Rented for: Formal Affair
The stylists were great. I ordered the 16 and 16w. The 16w was longer and looked better so I wore that. The lining of the dress was a hot mess and both dresses were FULL of static when they arrived. I spent a lot of time steaming and spraying with static release - in the end worth it. I received so many compliments and felt gorgeous. Thank you RTR! I will be signing up for pro today!
