This dress was a little tight around my bust, but other than that fit perfectly. (I am a 32D) I am 5'10 and wore the long with 4 inch heels, and the length was perfect.

Fit like a wedding gown!
Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I rented a 4R and a 6R. The top was snug on the 4R but the overfit was perfect. I'm 5' 8" and wore 3.5 in heels. The length in the front was a few inches off the gown and my shoes were showing. Rent the Long if you want the hem to touch the floor. I didn't have issues dancing in it or with anyone stepping on the short train. It has an inner zipper and and outer zipper and I didn't tug at the dress at all to keep it up.

One of my favorites
Size worn: 8L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
Where do I start and what to say that others haven't said already :) It was such a comfortable dress to wear because I didn't have to worry about anything other than going up and down the stairs.. Yes, you are constricted but the rest of it makes up for that I loved it and wished that I could keep it. Yes, it was long but I love long dresses. Picture was taken with no heels on and in size 10L (Thank you RtR for the back up size!). I fit in both 8L and 10L. 10L was a bit more big on top but I didn't mind. I had to take off the bra to zip up the last half inch of the 8L size. A friend said that it looked better in 8L and I liked the extra room in 10L. Fabric felt so rich and thick, I felt beautiful in it. Wish that I could rent it again just to wear it more!

Beautiful, but expected more
Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
For a dress that retails this expensive, I was expecting WOW. Instead, I thought it was meh. It's a great, beautiful, heavy fabric with a cool overall cut, but the fit was unflattering on my body. I have a really broad rib cage, and this has an interior corset but zipped just fine. But, it did nothing for my figure or bust. And, the corset sits right into your natural waist line, which was a bit uncomfortable. All that said, let me tell you how GREAT RTR was... they gave me this dress as a backup when my first choice was unavailable. It was one of three choices and was a dead third.

I wore this dress in University of South Carolina's homecoming pageant--and I won runner up! It's the highest quality dress I've ever worn, and SO beautiful. Very form-fitting and flattering, and makes your body look a million miles long! For pageants, etc, it is perfect. BUT I wouldn't recommend it for a prom/dance or anything where dancing is involved because the material is very heavy and you won't have a large range of movement in it. But such a gorgeous dress!

Great dress for the old Hollywood glamorous look!
Size worn: 10L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wore this dress to a masquerade ball. I ordered 8L and 10L, as I usually wear size 8, but I ended up wearing 10L since it does run a little tight in the chest area. So if you are blessed with large breasts this dress might not zip all the way up. Overall great first experience with RTR. I will definitely will be renting a dress from them again!

You can't go wrong with a Herrera - I felt classic, glamorous and beautiful.
Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The dress is snug, with a hidden corset, so it's not necessarily the easiest to sit down in - but the bodice is beautiful, the way it flares out to a subtle train is very glamorous, and I loved the subtle gold. A tiny bit short, but that happens when you're a giant.

This dress was so beautiful. I couldn't stop smiling all night!
Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
Online, I was not sure about this dress. I thought it was pretty, but I was not sure that I could pull it off. Fortunately, I was able to try it on in person and that was when I fell in love with it. Although having a full bust caused some issues with sizing, the dress looked beautiful. This dress is stunning. It is such a classy and elegant gown. I could not have picked a better dress for my senior prom. So many people complimented me on my dress during pictures and throughout the night. I could not stop smiling. The Catherine Gown is my favorite dress to date and I couldn't have been any more pleased with my experience. Thank you RTR!

Red Carpet Worthy Gown
Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
I received this dress as part of a VIP Showroom Experience for loyal RTR customers. This gown is beautifully constructed. Definitely FEELS like a $4,000 dress... but I think that's also part of it's problem. The material is a tapestry type fabric, lined in tafetta with two zippers in the back... making it very thick (and possibly hot). There is boning in the bodice - corset style in the seams... so it's not the kind of strapless gown you're going to have to lift up all night long... but because of the structured style of it... it doesn't really wrap or conform to your body. It's not for curvy girls. I'm a size 6 in pants so I ordered the 8. It fit in the hip area, but was big in the waist and chest area - and since the material is so thick and structured, it wasn't flattering at all... made me look like I don't have a waist. So if you're curvy and can fill out the top more than I can... you might feel too constricted. It's got a beautiful tail to it - but this would probably be best for an event without a lot of dancing because I can see it getting stepped on all night. So while it's a beautiful gown - I probably wouldn't rent it because it just wasn't flattering on my body.

Gorgeous and easy to style.

The photos of this dress do not do it justice. The fabric is really thick and beautiful, the gold looks extra special. I wore it with a statement necklace, which is definitely needed on pale skin, since otherwise this dress might wash you out. It was easy to wear and accessorize, and is definitely very formal.

Beautiful, but way too big :(
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
Beautiful dress in person! Unfortunately the dress was WAY too big. I'm usually a 2-4. So, i rented both the 2L & 4L seeing as I'm 5'7" and would be wearing 3-in heels. The 2L was wayyyy too big! There was a TON of extra fabric along the lower back, and it was big in the bust. I would have needed taller heels too...as it was too long with my 3-inch heels. Too bad, because this dress was gorgeous otherwise! Has a nice little train. I would have been interested to see how the 0 fit, but unfortunately they were out of that size. I'd definitely order down a size in this dress...and consider getting Regular length if you're 5'7" and not wearing heels over 3-inches.

This dress fit well. I ALWAYS run in to problems with dresses being too short for me but not with this dress! I was even able to wear heels and the dress was long enough! It was tight in the chest area for me but a little bunching occurred in the midsection! Overall this dress was great and I got tons of compliments!

Gorgeous head turner, but definitely true to size!
Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size

This gown is absolutely stunning. I planned on wearing it to the Emmy's and it would have been the perfect gown for that. HOWEVER....according to the reviews and fit description it ran tight in the bust and other areas so I decided to get it in a size up from my normal size and a size up from THAT as my back up. Especially because I am actually a 34F I wanted to play it safe. This dress is true to size IF you are apple or athletic and generally have a medium sized waist in comparison to your bust. As mentioned, my bust is 34F and I have a 28" waist, 36' hips. I am 5'4" and a 6R would have fit me perfectly. WIth that being said- if you get the correct size the gown itself is so stunning and well worth the listed rental price. It looks exactly like it does in the picture with the model. The fabric is gorgeous and its lighter than you would expect (in weight, not color). Its very sturdy and has a double zipper with an internal corset to help hold it up, which is great. How can you go wrong with a Carolina Herrera? Its classic, elegant, stunning, and will make you feel like a celebrity. On a side note RTR was fabulous re helping me with the sizing issue. I ended up wearing another rental gown that I had ordered for the extra 25$ look. Thank you RTR for being my fairy godmother. :)
