STYLIST REVIEW

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I felt like a princess! Basically the dress is amazing. It fits very true to size, and has enough structure in the bust area that you do not need to wear a bra with it. It is on the longer side, I was even wearing a 4in heel and it still was touching the ground. I would say if you are 5'3-5'6 you can wear the regular. All in all it was an amazing dress!

Breathtaking and elegant. Total princess gown.

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This gown is absolutely gorgeous and I loved it even more in person! I wore this to a formal ball and received compliments all night. The only reason I am not giving this 5 stars is because it was way too long on me. I am 5'1" and it was dragging on the floor even after I used hem tap to hike it up by 3 inches and wore 3.5" heels. Despite my challenges with length, I was very pleased with this rental and would recommend it to anyone looking to feel like a princess for the night.

SO pretty! Compliments all night.

Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
The fabric is super delicate and romantic, which was perfect for the Spring Black Tie Wedding I rented it for. I was asked all night where it was from. The only thing I didnt like was that the top was actually a bit loose and I had to add a little extra padding to make it more flattering.

Not for the large chested!

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Love this dress....in theory & on other body types. The details of the back, in particular, are really amazing....a totally whimsical, yet elegant piece. The dress fit well everywhere, except for the chest. You either have to wear clear straps or no bra. Either way, the layers and pleating add SO much extra bulk to an area that definitely doesnt need it haha! It will make anyone with boobs look so much heavier than they are. Definitely wouldnt recommend for anyone over a B-cup, maybe a small C-cup with super skinny arms. Thankfully didnt need to wear this dress at all. (RTW forgot to include the belt in the order anyway.) They only sent it as a second option b/c the dress i picked for order was ruined by previous renter and I had to pick a replacement dress last minute. On that note, RTW was SO great in taking care of what could have been a DISASTER of a situation. (It was for my brother's wedding.) RTW took great care of me to ensure I was overnighted replacement options. Very satisfied!

This dress made me feel so elegant, the dress was so flowy and beautiful.

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was so fabulous. I was concerned I would have issues with the lace detail and me not being able to wear a bra but the fit and bust insert made it perfect. The material is so soft and flowy, it was incredibly comfortable and I received so many compliments on it. My only flaw would be that it didn't come with the belt and I couldn't find one to match in time. I would definitely rent this dress again.

Goddess Gown

Size worn: 6L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wear it as a second dress for my wedding. I was comfortable and still allow me to feel like a bride. Just be careful if you order the long one. It is very long so you will need to wear high hills for sure.

Beautiful dress but too short!

Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
But I didn't end up wearing it because it was floor length on me barefoot meaning with any pair of heels it was immediately short!

RTR did NOT pack the belt. WHY???

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I ended up not wearing this dress for two reasons. One, it did not come with the belt and the belt is really what defines your waist. Without the dress is not as amazing. Second I didn't wear because I didn't realize that the top half of the dress acted like a halter top. What this means is that if you have a chest (and because you can't easily wear a bra with this dress) the twins will not be fully supported and kind of settle funny. Just an FYI. If you don't have a bust this dress probably creates one and is gorgeous!

I got 10+ compliments on my dress that night!

Size worn: 2L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
It's not letting me upload pictures, so I will just describe. I am 5'8" - 5'9", and I got 2R and 2L. I did not wear heals (I wore Jack Rogers) but I ended up wearing 2L because 2R was only down to my ankle. With 2L, people could still see my feet, but it was not too short or long. The color of the dress is a little darker in person than the model picture (it's more of nude/creamy pink) When I tried it on, one of the belt holes on the side fell off (that's why I gave it a 4), so it kinda kept slipping off, but it was not too bad. *Tip*: for wrinkly belt, iron it with a hair straightener, it works perfectly. Overall, the dress was very pretty, and I got so many compliments from people that I didn't know as well.

Not my favorite

Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I rented this dress for a black tie auction. I rented it in the 10L and 8R. The 10L was the right length but too big. The 8R fit better but was too short with heels. This dress is not one that can be too big. It made me look much thicker than I actually am. I ended up not wearing this dress and wore the back up dress I rented. I was really disappointed with this dress, I thought it was so nice on the model

Pure class and elegance!

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I'm becoming a RTR regular and I have to say I love every dress more than the last! Isn't that the point :) This dress ran true to size with one exception -- length. I ordered a 4R and 2L because my true size, a 2R, wasn't available. They arrived and the "regular" wasn't any shorter than the "long", which worked out perfect for me! So if you are on the taller size, definitely get a long but don't expect too much as I'm only 5'5 and it fit perfect. Size up if you are larger in the waist, it is tighter there than anywhere else. The quality was just stunning. The lace back was to die for -- I had to wear my hair up to show it off! The one bad thing was the dress was a little "worn" looking at the bottom. You could tell it had been used a few times as there were minor tears and a somewhat darker hem from rubbing on the ground. This wasn't noticeable to anyone but me of course, so don't let this hold you back... I would rent this again in a heartbeat!

Simply gorgeous!

Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: True to Size

I wore this gown to a wedding. The attire was black tie, women in gowns. I'm 5'5" and I wore an 8R. The length was perfect with 4" heels. This gown is classy and elegant. The lace on the shoulders and back is beautiful. I've never received more compliments on a dress in my life!

gorgeous, elegant, comfortable

Size worn: 6L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this dress for my wedding ceremony. I ordered a 6L although I think an 8R would have fit my body better (34DD). However, the 6L still fit, and I did not have to wear a bra as the dress has built-in support. The color is a beautiful blush tone, and the fabric is light and airy. I got married in my backyard in Phoenix, AZ, and I was happy to have a dress on that didn't weigh 20lbs! Everyone loved the dress, and I can honestly say I've never felt more beautiful! Oh, and the lace back is ahhhmazing!!!

It was a bit too ethereal and without the belt, it didn't look quite right on my body.

The color however can easily wash you out, it is a bit boxy would be perfect for someone with a larger bust, doesnt show too much shape.

Hollywood Class

Size worn: 6L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Now this dress was something else. It was just perfection I loved this dress and so did everyone else at the party. The only thing is that it is a little long and the bust is a little large. Which is surprising because I am a 36C and 5'7". I was a little disappointed that the dress was missing the belt, and actually I ordered this dress in two sizes and both dresses were missing the belt. If I could I would actually buy this dress myself. Actually I am very impressed with this designer and think she is really amazing. I have seen her stuff at Neimans and it is just top notch! This dress was truly spectacular. I actually wore two of this designers for a weekend long wedding in cancun and everyone from the hotel guest to the hotel staff and people at the party told me that I was the best dressed both days. It really is an amazing dress

This dress was perfect for the black tie wedding I went to in September. I received so many compliments on it throughout the night. Especially loved the back and cap sleeves. I wore my hair up so everyone could see the lace detail. Would definitely rent it again for another formal affair.

Gorgeous

Rented this dress to wear at my wedding reception. The dress was gorgeous! I was a little concerned about the color washing me out, but it is a beautiful blush color. The material off the dress is soft and flowy, and the back of the dress has beautiful lace detailing. It fits true to size, but the dress is a little long. I wore 4 inch heels and it was still about a 1/2 inch longer.

tons of compliments. elegant lace detailing and beautiful flowing fabric. a bit long (and the chiffon looks like it would get destroyed after a few wears) and didn't have as much definition at the waist as i would have liked.

LOVE THIS DRESS!!!

Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Wore this for my 1 year wedding anniversary- photo shoot and romantic dinner at our wedding venue. I absolutely love this dress! The back is simply gorgeous- you cannot beat the detail! Even the photographer was in love! True, the dress does run long, as other reviewers have mentioned. The bottom hem was a little worn- you could tell others before me had probably had difficulty with the length. The delicate back and sleeves had a few ratty threads, but once I put it on I fell so hard for the dress that it didn't even matter. The skirt has such natural flow and when you twirl or the wind hits it... magic! I did not want to take it off and I certainly wish I did not have to send it back!

Lovely but runs long!

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this dress to wear at my wedding reception. It was perfect, HOWEVER the dress came without the belt and I was extremely disappointed and had to wear the dress without it. It was also a tad bit long, and I had my mom hand sew the bottom of the dress the morning of the wedding to take it in a couple of inches. It all worked in the end and I was glad that I was able to wear it after all.
