I didn't have a chance to wear it because I ordered the wrong size

Ordered wrong size so the zipper didn't close otherwise it would've looked stunning for Valentine's Day date

Had a wonderful Valentine date with my hubby and felt like a queen in this dress.

I love this dress.. it is so silk and feels so nice. I felt like a royal in it..I'm 34DD and if was fitting great in chest area and could even wear this without a bra as it had inside support with wires.. I wish I could just keep it as the dress is timeless.

Beautiful dress

This dress is so lovely, it's just not for me. The fabric is lovely, the cut is lovely, along with the lace detail. But it didn't spark that joy that most rentals do! I think it will for someone else! Enjoy!

Looked like a formal night gown

The color of the dress is amazing, but with the lace in the middle and on the arms, it felt like it looked like a formal night gown. I loved the movement of the skirt but couldn't bring myself to wear this one.

Cleavage!

The back is low cut; I had to wear a bra so top part was visible. The bottom is really long. It is very comfortable to wear. Made of only polyester so I was paranoid about eating in it. Nice for Valentine's Day!

Beautiful dress

The color of the dress looked more pink in person than red. I ordered a size 4 and 6 for my backup. I think my body shape must be off since the top portion fit perfect in the 4, but too small in the waist to zip up. The 6 i was able to zip up but the top portion was too baggy which caused the lace to sit weirdly. The waist part had no give and unfortunately it was too ill fitting on top to work for the event. I normally like tea length dresses but it was too long for me. I have a tiny bit of a tummy and I would have had to size up to 8 for it to fit comfortably, but then the top would have been too big and dress probably too long. The dress had a built in bra, as well as some boning which kept it very structured around the mid section. Fabric is super soft and had a beautiful drape. Wish this worked out for me as it is a gorgeous dress!

Like a fancy nightgown

Like someone else wrote, this ends up seeming like a fancy nightgown. The fabric is seriously lovely, but the length is a little awkward (slightly shorter would probably have helped with the nightgown problem) and the lace is gorgeous but it's left feeling just... awkward. Also, there are built in "cups" in the bust area, but it's not a built-in bra as others suggested. The cups end up making weird creases around your breasts and it's hard to figure out where the waist is supposed to sit based on where the cups (and therefore your breasts) are.

So dress hugged the center rather than order size down I might recommend going up. I was fine till I had dinner and drinks, then it was tight. I’m 5’6 , 147 pounds

Cute dress

The skirt flows nicely. And the bodice is well constructed. There's a little too much lace on the shoulder. Overall nice dress for a night out.

"Best dress in the room" was heard more than once

Such a beautiful and glamorous dress. I received endless compliments and everyone wanted to know where I purchased the dress. I was happy to fill them in on all the joys of RTR. I've never rented from this designer previously, so not sure if it's common that the dresses run a little small. The black band at the waist was the tight spot, as it has no stretch. Everywhere else was flowy and lots of room. The upper part of the dress has padding, so if you did decide to go braless, the silky material isn't going to reveal everything! Only strange comment that was made to me over and over( besides it being the most lovely dress), was that from a distance, the lace on my arms, back and chest looked like tattoos. Could have been the poor lighting at the venue.

Luxurious

The material feels so rich, and the lace is tasteful. Strikes the perfect balance between sexy and sophisticated.

Fun to wear! Classy glamour

This dress runs smaller in the waist/ribcage area due to the ribbon belt. It took some work to zip up and I'm a typical sz 2-4. Fit perfectly everywhere else. Color is dark pink with brownish lace and black belt. Loved this rental.

Not what I was expecting...

I was skeptical of this dress to begin with and it was a little worse than I was expecting. The lace on top was very itchy and not a true black which kind of clashes with the black band at the waist. There are pads in the top and they made my boobs look weird as they were too large (mind you I'm a 36D and they were too large). The positive for this was the bottom half was extremely comfortable.

This dress was BREATHTAKING

I am truly obsessed with this dress, and if it weren't for the price tag I'd buy it in every colour. I received so many compliments and I felt like a queen all night. It does run a bit small. I am usually very comfortable in a 10 and this was just a tad too tight. No need for a bra and it fits well for my large chest. If I were to purchase it I would certainly hem the dress, but for the purpose of rentals it was fine on my 5'7" frame. 10/10 would rent again.

Beautiful color, but difficult to love.

I rented this for a black tie optional party. The color was beautiful but it felt like I was wearing glorified lingerie. The top was too big yet the empire waist closure was so small and tight. It also appeared in the picture to be tea length but given my short stature (5'4) it was awkwardly long and instead looked like i had a short long dress on. I felt like the dress was meant for a real-life Barbie that had a large chest, tiny tiny midline, and was very tall. I typically adore my RTR rentals but this one was a true disappointment, especially with how expensive the rental was. Would not recommend sadly.

This dress is great for someone with an athletic build. Did not work for an hourglass shape.

Beautiful dress

Beautiful fabric, color and design. I really wanted to wear it but I needed a size 16. Too tight in bust, i barely got it zipped and when I did it as painful.

Beautiful dress for a very special dinner

Fit true to size. Too low in the back for a bra but the built in cups were enough support. May be a difficult dress if you have a smaller chest. It fit my chest really well (32DDD). Much longer on me than the model. My husband loved it and it added a really special feeling to our date. The lace is more of a gold color but a fun accent. The skirt was super fun to twirl in walking down the street.

Small but pretty

I LOVED the flow of the skirt but the waist felt too tight to comfortably wear this to a wedding and the gold underlay on the straps felt too big.

Never received more compliments in my life!

I'm glad I ordered a size up because it runs small but it fit like a dream. It was extremely flattering and comfortable. The color is absolutely gorgeous and the lace detail makes the dress. I've rented a few other times but this is my far my favorite dress ever. I got complimented too many times to count all night and I felt amazing!

So classy and elegant

This dress was absolutely gorgeous! The material was lush, soft and so beautiful. I felt red carpet ready all night. It is on the tight side around the waist and I'm petite. Length was perfect for me, but I am a shorty 5'2". So if you are petite and looking for a formal length dress this is perfect!!

Backup for wedding.

I didn't end up wearing this dress but was eyeing it so long I just had to try it for myself. It was gorgeous however, it was a very odd fit. The boning in the top portion, at the back of the dress was very high and would not lay flat so it almost looked as if the dress was floating on me. Maybe it's my body..but it just didn't work even though I wanted it to.

Beautiful dress but didn't wear

This dress was gorgeous. I just felt it didn't fit the occasion I was renting it for. I also felt the lace was a bit big and blended in too much with my skin. It runs just a little bit long in the torso so one could size down if need be. The skirt is gorgeous but a bit seethrough. Wish I had an opportunity to wear it.

Well dressed for event

Top was ever so slightly big but I'm a pear shape. Got so many compliments. I was worried about the pleats but dressed was very flowy and reminded me of Marilyn Monroe. Color was amazing. Zipper was a little hard to work up and down.
