Loved it!!

Beautiful well made dress. It was soft, warm and just so perfect. I went to a work Christmas party and got so many compliments right when I walked in. I liked the detail of the stitching. The dress is very unique, conservative yet classy! Highly recommend.

Winter Warm Versatile Dress

Fit true to size. Fabric has stretch except at waist. Waist has a band around it that does not give. No slit in dress would make difficult to dance in but was great for a dinner date. Fabric was thicker than most dresses. Perfect for winter. Stitching was VERY delicate and caught on things. I put a napkin between myself and the table to protect the dress. Was really beautiful and felt like I could dress up or down.

This dress is amazing!!!

Wore this to a holiday client dinner. It was a hit and many, many compliments. It has built in boning in the ribs and around the bust so I didn't need to wear a bra w this one. I highly recommend.

Beautiful well made dress, but better for someone taller

I loved the overall look of this dress. The material is nice and thick and it's definitely well made. But at 5'3" I felt like the shoulders were quite large and falling off me, and the hemline hit me at mid-calf, which isn't the most flattering. I ended up wearing it because I didn't get a backup dress, and I still got compliments, but I think it would be much nicer on someone taller.

Stunning dress with a semi-formal feel!

This dress is beautifully made with thick quality fabric. It was too dressy to wear as business casual but the elegant design would be perfect for a wedding or semi formal event.

This is a great dress!

Fit and embroidery detail are very nice. It's a low V in the back, so I recommend a jacket if wearing to work.

Gorgeous embroidery

Fit so well, good without spanx, great with them. Loved the silhouette and the embroidery was deluxe (tiny tiny pulls in the embroidery). Felt very pretty at wedding and way better than anything in my closet!

A beautiful dress! I rented it for an audition and it was perfect.

A perfect combination of elegant and sexy. The dress hugs all the right areas. The top was slightly big but still looked fine. I wore a 6 but probably could have even worn a 4.

wear this dress if you want compliments!

bodycon meets elegance in this well-designed dress. High-quality embroidery, thick [read: no lumps show] fabric, just-below-the-knee length and deep, flattering plunging neckline all add up to a great dress! I was stopped by several other guests with compliments. sexy and sophisticated.

Best RTR yet!

This dress is a perfect upgraded LBD. The fabric is very thick and hides a multitude of sins, no spanx required (and I *always* wear spanx). The embroidery is lovely and has a bit of a sheen to it. I wore this to my anniversary dinner and after a couple of hours of sitting there were no creases or wrinkles in the thing. The front and back plunges just enough to be sexy but not enough to require going braless. This dress will make you feel comfortable and really elegant. Will rent again!

Lots of compliments!

The dress is made of a heavy, quality fabric and fits very well. I tend to go between a size 8 and 10 and the 8 fit best. Snug but not tight. I wore this to a charity benefit that was black & white themed and received a lot of compliments. Beautiful dress. My only complaint is that when the dresses arrived, one of them absolutely WREAKED of heavy cigarette smoke. It smelled like the previous wearer had worn this to the racetrack and chainsmoked a carton or two of unfiltered Camels. Even just lying the dress on my bed, I could smell it from a room away - and I am not uncomfortable around smokers...so, this had to be a very heavy smell. This is my second rental and first negative experience...I would urge RTR to use more care, as this could have been disastrous. The dress was unwearable in that condition...you would have smelled me from a mile away. I now own 6 different brands of powerful fabric odor refreshers... just saying.

Loved the details on this dress

This dress fit well and was flattering and appropriate for a catholic school fundraiser. The details were lovely but the dress was starting to look used. It would not be good for an event with dancing as mobility was limited. All in all, I was really happy to wear this dress.

This dress was beautiful!! The material is thick but stretchy, very flattering. The embroidery made the dress! This dress screamed class. I could have worn the 10 but wanted a little more wiggle room, it was very comfortable on. I got so many compliments on it

Perfect fit

Finding a dress for my post partum body has been a challenge. This dress was comfortable, flattering on my tough areas, and a nice change from the simple black cocktail dress. The embroidery was lovely.

Seriously gorgeous dress

I rented this based on the other reviews, and everyone was right. There are many reasons this dress has 5 stars from everyone. It's beautifully made. The embroidery is exquisite. It's flattering, and I expect would be on anyone. It gives you curves where you need them and minimizes them where you don't. It's just a perfect dress.

Lots of compliments with this dress!

The original dress I rented didn't fit very well, so this was an option available in the store in my size. I'm very happy with this dress though. The embroidery on this dress was beautiful. It is thick, which did make me feel a little hot since I was at a summer wedding. The only real con were the shoulders that sometimes slipped off when sitting down. They felt a little big, not sure if going a size down would help with that. Overall, a great rental!

Beautiful dress

I wore this dress for my rehearsal dinner. I usually wear a size 10 or 12. It has a little stretch to it which helped with the comfort. I am a 36 DDD and it fit beautifully up top without feeling like I was showing too much cleavage. I got components on it all night. It was the perfect dress for a summer event!

Fits true to size without too much give, so make sure to pay attention to your measurements. Plunging neckline is super flattering and the detailed embroidery is gorgeous!

Beautiful thick material!

I rented this for a black tie optional wedding. I normally wear a 2, but the 0 would have been a better fit in this dress. The chest and shoulder area felt quite large and the dress kept slipping down my shoulders during the night. I'd definitely recommend sizing down for a backup if you are small-chested. However, it is a beautiful dress and I loved the heavier material!

Comfortable and stunning

Has a bit of stretch to it, I am usually a 12 but wore 10 comfortably. The intricate embroidery is a show stopper. My father in law said I took the oxygen out of the room in this dress :)

This dress is beautiful! I paired it with black heels and turquoise jewelry for a fun touch.

Fit true to size, it hit jut below my knee and the neckline was low but not too revealing at all. I have an hourglass figure and this dress highlighted my curves without being too tight. It was perfect for a formal event with a whimsical theme.

I recently attended a holiday formal and one of the event photographers asked to take my picture because she loved the dress. Form fitting and looks even better in person. This was my first dress order and I look forward to renting more dresses in the future.

This dress is everything! I'm buying it.

I wore this to an October wedding in Canada. It was slightly chilly and the dress was a nice weight. Gorgeous, heavy fabric that doesn't wrinkle. I was happy to see that the dress looked perfect when I pulled it out of my luggage. Received many compliments and it fit like a dream. I'm 5'8" and leggy, and the length was great, not too short, hit me right at the knee. Shows a bit of décolleté but it's classy, also the perfect little cap sleeve.

Worn to an Awards Luncheon

I wore this to accept an award as NAWBO Woman of the Year. I was SO nervous about selecting a dress for the honor and this was just perfect. I received numerous compliments. I did feel slightly overdressed, as it was a daytime affair, but I seemed to be the only one who thought so. I do think this dress would be well suited for an evening cocktail affair or wedding, as well. The fabric was incredible! The embroidery was like a piece of art. This is definitely one of those dresses I would rent and not pay full price to own. It's a statement dress!

Wore to a company Christmas party. Many compliments.

Dress was lovely and made of a thicker, very forgiving material. No bumps or lumps! :-) Comfortable enough to eat and dance all night long. One star deducted because it was very warn under the arms- slightly discolored.

Classy and elegant!

I rented this dress for a friend's wedding and couldnt have been happier! I received many compliments and felt great in it! Im a size 4 and did end up wearing the 4 instead of the 2. It felt slightly loose up top but Im not well endowed in that area anyway :) Everything else fit perfectly- very comfortable! I highly recommend this dress for any dressy event.

Beautiful, but not for me

my key insecurity is my waist/belly and this dress did me no favors--a smaller size may have been better though and in my skinnier days, this dress would have been a winner. gorgeous.
