Didn't love it
Rented for a daytime business fraternity event. This was one of the two options and I ended up wearing the other dress. This just felt a bit too formal for the event I was attending.

Great dress
I wore this to a wedding and got lots of compliments I went up two sizes I have big hips so if your hippy go up I ordered the 18 and the 20 was out and got the 22 and it fit the only thing was in the top in was a little big and the 18 was fit in the top and tight in the hips so 20 probably would have fit perfect but still looked great

The dress really match my groom shirt and the other men in the wedding. love the pockets
The con's of the dress is the lining of the dress was torn in different spots. I was glad it didn't show when I tried the dress on. The hanger it came with was broken and so the dress was crushed in the bag.

This dress was a hit!
No cons about the dress other than it got "poofy" whenever I sat down, which I thought looked a little strange. Pros are that it had pockets, bra strap holders, and the bust didn't feel tight at all!

It fit the bill!
My first RTR dress, and I received many compliments from long-time friends (the kind that tell the truth). The material is on the heavy side, but was comfortable at the inside event. The zipper was difficult to for me to zip/unzip, but my husband was able to do it with ease. The bra loops were broken, but the cut of the dress allowed me to wear a normal bra. The general style was very flattering for my curvy body. I was concerned about the length, but at 5'8" it was not too short. I used the sizing measurements to order the correct size and it worked perfectly.

Fit well but...
I rented this for my nephew's bar mitzvah services. The dress fit perfectly but the lining and pockets were torn so I decided to wear the back up dress. The backup dress was different because the backup was damaged but RTR did offer to overnight the correct size I just didn't have the time to wait.

Cute & Comfortable
I loved this dress! I was the wedding coordinator for a dear friend's wedding and this dress was perfect for the job! I was comfortable running around and got tons of compliments. I'm typically between a size 18-20 and the 18 worked great. The pockets were an awesome added benefit to this dress!

Fun dress for work
Love this dress! Looks good feels good. I thought the 16w would fit but it was a bit snug. 18w was comfortable. Sparkling necklace and boots. Work to wine dinner, very classy

Elegant Dinner Party
The fit was true to size. I have wider shoulders so i knew the fitted top half might be a problem. It was a snug fit but I was not uncomfortable. The skirt flared out perfectly for my apple body shape. I got compliments and my date said I was stunning. I would rent this again if an even came up!

Cute but not a good cut
I couldn't wear this dress because the top was way too small. I'm very busty and my boobs were completely smushed and I had a hard time breathing. The pockets are adorable and the print is fantastic but it's not made for bigger girls as the fabric doesn't give at all.

Wish I could've worn it!
Once again I get derailed by my chest :( This dress would've been PERFECT if it hadn't been for my bust area. It fit me perfectly in every other area, except I couldn't get it zipped up by my shoulder blades. If you have a bigger chest (I'm a DDD cup), consider sizing up! However, the RTR crew were fantastic and overnighted me a new dress (since this wasn't available in my back-up size). I definitely want to try to rent this again when it's available in a larger size though!

I couldn't fit int the dress. :(
This was a beautiful dress and I couldn't wait t try it on when it arrived. Unfortunately, in my case the dress ran approximately two sizes too small and I couldn't wear either the one I ordered or the back up due to the tight and unyielding waistband and the fact that I have a large bust.

This dress turned out great, I needed it to travel well and be versatile. The wedding was outside in the snow, but the reception was indoors in a wine cave. It turned out to be perfect with a cute sweater and I was so comfortable dancing the night away.

Looking glam for a wedding.
Loved the length of this dress, which hit right below the knee. I also liked that it had blue pops in the dress and not fully black. It was slightly tighter in the waist than I expected, but I managed just fine. This was my first time renting from RTR and I wasn't disappointed!

Modest and chic
I wore this dress to be a greeter in a friend's wedding, and it was a perfect choice -- cute and chic but also modest. The wedding was in November, so the dress was a great seasonal choice. Loved the pockets and the tailored structure. A great fit for me!

This dress was amazing, it was high quality, and fit perfectly.
I have a large chest and this dress has no give, it's very tailored, and it fit my bust. I was amazed. I am so excited to have another excuse to order another dress!

Great selection
This is a beautiful dress, much prettier in person. I ordered my true size and the bodice was too small so I couldn't wear it unfortunately. I do plan on renting this for my next event but in a bigger size. Enjoy!

This dress is amazing!
I wore this to an early October wedding and it was perfect! I ended up wearing a black sweater because it was cold and rainy. But I got so many compliments. Would definitely rent this dress again!

I wore this to an evening Annual Dinner. I received a lot of compliments.
The dress was true to size. It was a little big in the bust for me, but no armpit gaps. It hit directly at my knees so it was a great length for me and the a-line was very flattering for my figure. My only issue is that "straps" at the shoulder were so narrow I had to make sure that my bra strap wasn't showing. Other than that I have no complaints and several people loved my dress!

Lovedddd this dress!!
Loved this dress so much from the first minute I zipped it up! The pictures online don't do this dress justice because it's beautiful in person. Runs a little small in the top and waist so I wore the 18 even through usually I'm a 16 in dresses. But loved that it pulled me in tight and showed off my waist which is my slimmed part and then puffed out on the skirt. Felt like it hid my larger hips and belly. Would definitely rent this dress again!

Lots of compliments!
This dress had a strange fit – – The 16 (my usual dress size) was perfect except it was too tight at the waist to zip. In the 18, the waist fit perfectly but it was too big elsewhere. Because of the structure of the dress, it still worked and didn't look totally ridiculous. I wore this dress with black kitten heels and a statement necklace for a night wedding, and I got tons of compliments on it. I thought the pockets were a really fun touch even though I did not use them. The fabric was absolutely beautiful, much more attractive in person than in pictures. Overall, though, I probably would not rent the dress again. I am 5'4" and I think the dress is much better suited to someone who is tall (or at least average height!) with a true hourglass figure.

Loved it!
I got so many compliments on this dress at a recent wedding. Being tall, it is hard to find dresses that hit at the right length. I had a couple of dresses picked out, but knowing the height of the women that wore the dress definitely helped in finalizing my pick of this dress. This dress was perfect! I did end up wearing the 18; although the 16 fit perfectly, when I sat down it was a little constraining. The 18 was only a little too big, but much more comfortable to sit in. The pockets are also amazing! My husband actually asked how much it would cost to buy, since he loved the way that I looked in it. The answer...too much, but I would definitely rent this dress again.

I originally ordered the 20W but wore the 22W since the mid section runs a little small but the rest of the dress was very comfortable. I spent the entire day in it and was never uncomfortable. I would highly recommend this dress for a wedding guest.

Was just a little tight in the tummy when I sat down.

Classic, comfortable, and chic!
I loved this dress. I was expected the black detail to be a lace overlay, but it is actually a pattern that is part of the fabric. The blue is gorgeous and the black sparkles to catch the eye. This dress has pockets! It is super comfortable and fit really well. There was a small gap at the top near my shoulders, but with a nude bra and general movement, it wasn't a big deal. I didn't notice this until I got home and was undressing, but there are bra snaps to hold your straps in place. This would have been super helpful as I had to continuously adjust my straps more toward my neck. Too bad I didn't notice it sooner! I am 5'4" and the dress hit just below the knee, which is was great for the formal wedding I attended. I would definitely rent this again. I received compliments all night long. I wore it with crystal earrings (my own) and a rented necklace (Lee Angel, Tie Up in Crystal).

Amazing dress, got so many compliments
This dress is beautiful. I loved how some of the black detailing was shimmery, added that extra hint of glamour. I was very pleased with the weight of the fabric, which hid all the little bumps and lumps nicely. I was thrilled to find out about half way through my night that the dress has POCKETS!!! For my first RTR experience it was really a home run!

I loved this dress - perfect for a casual wedding!
I loved this dress - it was short but dressy and perfect for a day wedding. The color really popped and shined. I normally wear an 18 and the 20 fit comfortably so I went with that. I would say it was slightly long for my 5'3 frame. My ONLY criticism of the dress is that the pleats made my stomach pop out a bit. But other than that I loved it.

Elegant, comfortable and flattering
I wore the 18W, because the 16W was tight in the bust. The length is great and fell right at my knees. The material was smooth and comfortable for the entire evening.
