I got a TON of compliments, would rent this again
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.

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.

Second Try Was Perfect!
I rented this a month ago for an event and based on reviews and pictures I got a bigger size. When it arrived it was way too big so I couldn't wear it. I rented it again for a wedding this past weekend and got two sizes smaller and it was perfect. Really comfortable and the pockets are the best! I'm 5'10 and it hit me about an inch over the knee. It does ride up when sitting. Paired it with the Nicole Miller Southern plantation earrings and they looked great. Would definitely recommend this dress.

Didn't work like I wanted :(
Rented this for a wedding and had to return due to it not fitting. I will say though as a disclaimer - I had gained some weight and was still trying to get back into pre-baby shape so I may have been a little ambitious on what size I THOUGHT I could wear. I have most of my excess weight in belly/hips/thighs and rear and it would have probably been perfect had I been a size or two smaller, overall. It is beautifully made and I loved the pockets! Shame I couldn't wear it.

Fun art show with a wonderful dress!
I love having a new beautiful dress to wear to my husband's art shows. The dress still looked good in fluorescent light, but less sparkly. I wore the 16w because it is tight around the ribs. It fit well, a nice length skirt and you can wear a regular bra. It was another successful dress!

This fit like a true size 14. I'm 5'8 and wish the dress was about an inch shorter. Color was amazing, a truly luxurious dress.

Ladylike but still sexy
Nicely cut torso on me, pretty dark fabric, and POCKETS! Hurrah! Could work for either dressy day or evening, so I did both over one weekend! Wish it were a titch shorter - I'm 5'6" and it was just below knee, which is a look, but not my favorite. Great foil for a glam necklace. Very Mad Men!

It's hard to find flattering clothes as a plus-size individual, but I felt beautiful in this dress.
This dress is GORGEOUS. The photos don't do it justice. The blue is deep and very striking. The fit is very flattering. The dress was just a little tight around the midsection, but manageable. I would definitely rent this dress again in the future.
