I wore this to judge a pageant.
I loved the dress! Very classy, great color! Be aware that this dress does in fact run small in the hips making it a bit hard to sit.

Beautiful Color
I rented this as a backup dress and ended up wearing my first choice because it was more fitting for my occasion. I LOVED this dress though and can't wait to rent it again. The color, cut, and fabric are amazing!

The color of dress is beautiful and if you have hour glass figure, it would be perfect for you.
This dress definitely goes in at the waist and out at the hips. My body does not do that. I had to wear the larger size, when I always wear a 6, as the chest was too tight. That made the hip area of dress way to big. Not the best fit for my body type.

Very nice, snug in the bust
I wish I would have gotten the 14 to have been a little bit more comfortable in the bust area, but it was a very nice dress and I still really liked it.

Beautiful colors and high quality fabric. Ran a bit large and I would have preferred a 2.
Definitely order the right size, otherwise the cut of the dress can look a bit boxy. I wore a belt to help define my waist.

great fit + super comfortable
the fit was spot on for this dress! the waist wasn't too tight and the pin tucks in the front added a great detail while making the cut of the dress more flattering for me so it wasn't skin tight. the sleeves weren't too tight on my shoulders so this dress was perfect for dancing all night long!

Great fabric design and color.
The color and design were fantastic. The high neckline resulted in somewhat of an awkward chest look and I felt I needed to add a necklace or a belt to make it look normal. Without those items the dress ended up being a bit unflattering. I usually wear a two but felt more comfortable in the four as the bottom inside lining of the dress was quite tight (hard to sit!). The pockets were key-perfect spot for a phone and the dress looked better in pictures when my hands were in my pocket.

I felt sophisticated and beautiful - wish I could buy this dress!
I loved the color, fabric, texture and structure of the dress. I received so many compliments all night, but the highest of all is when one of the grooms interrupted a guest to tell me how amazing I looked in that stunning dress. The only con is when the dresses arrived they were both damaged. The hem of the size 10 was flipping up and showing about an inch of the lining. I fixed it by pinning the lining up. That is why I gave 4 out of 5 stars.

Pretty for a church wedding, but oh so hot for July!!
I am usually between a 6 and an 8, so I rented both. I was able to get into the 6 and get it zipped, but found that I couldn't actually walk due to how tight the skirt was. The 8 gave me much more room to move, but seemed to poof out at my waist a bit more, in a less-than-flattering way. I felt very nicely covered for the ceremony in a Catholic church, but the dress was VERY thick (like brocade fabric with a lining), and a bit difficult to move in. Mostly, it was raising my arms that was a challenge with the cap sleeves. The chest was also a bit tight, making it difficult to take deep breaths. That being said, the color was gorgeous, and I absolutely LOVED the pockets!!

It was a pretty dress and very flattering fit.
Loved the metallic shimmer material, great fit for an hourglass figure. Pockets were a huge plus and didn't diminish the formal look.

Beautiful dress - made me stand out in a crowd!
I absolutely loved this dress and received so many compliments on it the entire night I wore it. The dress was a perfect choice for a fall wedding. It fit true to size (I sized up for my second choice based on other reviews, but didn't even need to try it on). The length was different for me, but for a formal event having the dress hit at my knees felt very appropriate. I had read comments about some saying that the sleeves on the dress could be tight - I did not have that problem at all; the only time that the dress felt a bit tight was when I sat down for dinner (hugged my thighs a bit, but I do have a curvy figure). It was not uncomfortable, just noticeable for myself. I was able to dance and walk around without any problems. I would absolutely rent this one again - and plan to rent it in a different color for a spring wedding that is coming up.

Wish this dress was mine!
This dress is fab-u-lous. I wore it for an industry awards event in NYC. It was cocktail attire, but some people go formal and some people roll in after work, so the dress runs the gamut. This dress was PERFECT. The fabric is dressy enough, and the cut is feminine and formal without that low-cut-, red lace, too short trying too hard look. The color is gorgeous, esp for those with light coloring like the model. Love, love, love this dress

Overall it was a beautifully crafted dress! I received a lot of compliments in it! The only thing is the dress is a tight fit in the hip so if you're a hippy girl size up.

Sophisticated, classy, and unique dress.
I just loved this dress. I felt totally special and beautiful in it. I received tons of compliments. The sleeves are tiny bit tight, causing a little difficult raising your arms all the way over your head, but I was able to dance in it without any issues. Super flattering. It hits just above the knee--a great length. And it has pockets! I was incredibly sad to say goodbye to it.

Sophisticated with edge
The fit on this is amazing! I have larger hips and it was a little tight when I sat down but overall the cut is great if you're a little curvy like me. The print is gorgeous. It's not too bright but it's a definite stand out dress! I wore this to a wedding in NYC and got tons of compliments. Paired it with the Lauren Merkin clutch and Kendra Scott earrings with dark green nail polish, smokey winged eye make up and nude lispstick with slicked back hair in a bun. Super sophisticated and glamorous with a little rock and roll edge. Already thinking of renting this again for future events.

This dress was great and I received so many compliments all night. It was a little bulgy in the middle but that didn't bother me. It also has pockets which are cool! Definitely recommend this dress. I also rented the necklace and earrings which were perfect.

Everyone thought I looked amazing. I received so many compliments!
It was a little tight in the sleeves and the material a little thick. I did a lot of dancing and was in southern humidity, so I was a little hot. But I don't regret wearing the dress. It was a little short on me, so I had it hemmed to make it a more "fun" length.

Absolutely Stunning! This dress is perfection.
I wore this dress to shoot a campaign for Komen, I needed something that had structure and texture as it was shot from a profile angle. It is so classy and cut beautifully. This dress is truly a piece of art!! I suggest going up a size for your backup, I found the 0 slightly tight around the bust, but it fit perfectly everywhere else. The 2 was too big all around for me personally. The dress did have a slight tear in the back slit, but since I only wore it for the hour long shoot it was not an issue for me. I will be waiting for this one to go up for sale!!

Beautiful color and pattern!
UPDATE: I wore this dress a second time as I was selected by Crain's Business Chicago as their August "Business Model". Thank you RTR for a beautiful dress for the photo shoot!! Photo credit Shane Collins. I have to say, I am OBSESSED with this dress and it was PERFECT for taking pictures for my blog (www.the-fbombs.com)! I used my free birthday dress (seriously, Go PRO if you haven't already you get a free dress on your birthday!!) and I have to say, I could not have been happier. The color is not only stunning in pictures but it's beautiful in person, the pattern is wonderful, it is tasteful and modest (PERFECT to wear at a wedding!!) and the best part!? It has POCKETS!! All in all, rent the dress!! I have nothing bad to say about it at all. It runs very true to size (I could have worn the 2 but the 4 was just a tad more comfortable) and you will LOVE wearing it all night long!!

Loved this dress. Have worn it in both colors and would do it again!
The bust is tight. If you get the right bra to shove them in the dress is effortlessly amazing, so anyone over a DD (the RTR size chart does not have DDD in it) be warned. The pockets are a huge advantage and the dress does allow you to drink a little and not look bloated due to the miraculous darting. I would wear this again, I just wish my bust was a little more comfortable. Not a single complaint otherwise.

I was sent this dress when a backup order didn't come through at the last minute. I didn't end up wearing it, as I preferred the other dress, but if I had an event, I definitely would've worn this one. (Great for hiding the hips!)

Loved It!
Wore this to an after-work awards gala/board meeting for a professional association. Attire was "business/cocktail". I felt that this dress was absolutely perfect. The fabric is very elegant and the color is gorgeous. I am short-waisted and typically have issues with fit through the middle but this fit very well. Loved the pockets, which somehow do not make the skirt bulge. The sleeves, as mentioned in other reviews, do cut a bit but it wasn't a deal breaker, I would consider buying this dress because it's not trendy or boring-feel like you could wear it year after year and it wouldn't lose relevance. As with all the dresses I've rented through RTR, received many compliments.

Gorgeous. Structured. Classic.
I rented this dress for a wedding, and I have to say, it was absolutely perfect. I wore the size 0, because with the pockets and the structure of the dress, it was important to have a form fitted waistline. My only complaint is that my size 34D chest caused some difficulty with sitting comfortably at certain points. Regardless of that, the dress was so gorgeous - it made me feel like a million bucks. I would 100% rent this dress again, and look forward to renting this same dress in the additional pink color later on.

Wore this to a charity concert and felt glamorous and comfortable all evening.
Totally size down. I normally wear an 8 and the 6 fit me perfectly. This dress is very comfortable sitting, standing and running across busy streets. And it has awesome pockets - bonus! On my way to UPS to send it back and wishing I had more time with this rental. Thanks RTR - great service!
