this dress is actually silver, very nice.
Very nice dress. It was a bit lower on my bust, but still decent enough to wear. The zipper was not really secured to the dress at the bottom and would get caught in the top of my underwear and bunch up.

Beautiful, flowy dress with delicate details
I wore this dress for my husband's battalion ball. As other reviewers have stated, it definitely is more of a silvery color than it appears online. I usually wear a size 10 and this fit pretty much true to size, maybe even a teensy bit large. Also, the illusion neckline is a bit long so if you don't have a large bust and the top is a bit loose on top the sweetheart neck might fall a bit low. My only real complaint is that the dress was way too short. I am only 5'3" and wore 2" heels and the regular length dress was almost up to my ankles. What was super strange was that the tulle hit the floor, it was just the lining that was short. It made me a bit insecure all night and definitely showed up in our photos. Still, it was a beautiful dress with stunning details. I felt that it was extremely figure-flattering and would definitely recommend it to others.

Just a little blah
I think this dress would be a knockout in the correct size on someone with the right coloring. The dress is a little more grey/beige than I hoped, and I probably needed an 8P. The dress I ended up wearing was an 8P, but I was scared off by the reviews of this dress running tight in the bust and waist. As you can see in the pic (ignore my napping husband's arm) it was just kind of blah and a little loose in the middle and bust. The shoulder proportion and length were perfect (go petites!) The dress is beautiful detailing wise. A little staticky so if you rent, be sure to have scotch guard or similar to keep it from clinging.

Show Stopping Fairytale Dress!
I LOVE THIS DRESS! I got it to wear for our engagement photos, and it was absolutely perfect! I ordered a 6R (because I usually wear a size 6) and a 10L because it was the only long size available. The 6 did fit, however was WAY too short, and I'm 5'8. So I went the 10 L simply for the length. So if you're on the taller side, absolutely go for the long sizes. It was incredibly comfortable and it flowed so beautifully. People walking by us during the shoot kept telling me how gorgeous the dress was. It is definitely a silver color, which the photo on the website doesn't really show it. I wore silver shoes with it and they matched perfectly.

Show stopper from the front and back.
This was a beautiful dress! I received countless compliments and would defiantly rent it again. The only thing I might do different is order the petite size, I'm 5'5" and wore 3" heels and it was slightly too long. It was still manageable though. Good thing RTR sends an extra size, I ended up wearing a size smaller than usual.

This dress was unbelievably comfortable and simply elegant.
I wore this dress to the Tony Awards this past June and couldn't have been happier! It's extremely comfortable and the details are gorgeous. Also, it gives the appearance of being strapless but has mesh shoulders so I wasn't pulling the dress up all night. It is definitely true to size. I always go a size up because of my height but I shouldn't have for this dress. I ordered a 10 when I normally do an 8 and I had plenty of room. I think the 8 would have been more fitted and flattering, but I still loved it. The only con for me was the length. I am 5'11" and was wearing 4 inch heals and the dress was still scraping the floor so I was holding up awhile. I ordered to 10L because usually dresses hit me at ankle length, but for all you tall girls out there, the regular length will be fine! Despite my length issue, I still loved the dress and was so sad to send it back! I got many compliments, including some from celebrities! It made me feel like the star of the show and I'm so glad I rented it. I highly recommend!!

Stunning dress
I rented this dress for engagement photos taken in a studio, then a nice dinner. I had read reviews that the dress ran large so I rented the 2r as well. I was worried because after I had placed my order i read more reviews that said it ran small. Luckily the 4r was perfect. I wore it without a bra because it has built in support, also if I tried to wear a bra it would have been too tight. The dress is very light and made of quality materials so feels super comfortable. The dress is not tight around the stomach so eating was comfortable. I had no issues with my order. The dress photographs beautifully. This was my first rental, I had tried before but they did not ship to Hawaii. I'm so happy they've opened this service to Hawaii. I already have my second rental ordered. I can't wait to order more!

I rented this dress for my wedding after-party.
This dress was perfect. First, it looked like it could be a wedding gown, which was important to me because I still wanted to look like the 'bride' during the after-party, but I wanted to be comfortable. The dress was SUPER comfy - it felt like a night-gown. I wore it with flat sparkly flip-flops and it was a bit too long, but I just couldn't stand in heels for another second, and it only touched the ground. Didn't prevent me from walking around or dancing. It fit perfectly, and didn't require any different undergarments than those I was already wearing for my wedding gown. It looked beautiful and I got several compliments on it. I would highly recommend this dress.

Incredible Silver Dress! I felt phenomenal!
I wasn't sure what size I was, but I ordered a 6R and 8R. I am between 5'10" and 5'11" and weigh about 140 lbs. The week of my event, I got an email from RTR saying that the 8R had been returned to them damaged beyond repair and asking me to choose a different dress as a replacement. So, they sent me this dress in 6R and another dress of my choice in 8R. I was very nervous, because there was nothing else like this dress and I was afraid the 6R wouldn't fit. Lucky for me, it fit great! I felt so beautiful and got so many compliments on this dress. I was afraid it would be white and look too much like a wedding dress, but as other reviewers said, though it photographs white the dress is definitely silver. I recommend silver jewelry and silver shoes. I bought fashion tape and ended up not needing it with this dress. You could wear it without a bra and be okay, but I wore a stick-on bra (I'm small chested and the stick-on bra creates a little cleavage that I prefer). I have an abnormally long torso which makes it difficult to wear fitted things, but this is only fitted at the top and worked fine for me. I probably could've work a 6L but that size wasn't an option when I ordered it. I wore it to a Marine Corps Ball. Bottom line--I give this dress to big thumbs up! I never wanted to take it off!

Beautiful, but runs small in chest.
I rented this dress for my sorority formal, but didn't actually end up wearing it to my event! It's a really pretty silvery-grey, and definitely not as white as it comes off in the picture. For me, it was a little too tight in the chest, but I have a larger rib cage and tend to need to size up in fitted dresses as a result, so it wasn't a huge surprise! I really wish I could've worn it because it was absolutely gorgeous! It got a lot of compliments just hanging up in my room!!

I was told that my dress was like no other in the room and that I looked like a princess.
This dress is beautiful! I loved the way that it flowed as I walked. My husband told me that I looked like a princess in it. The color is a bit hard to describe. It's like a dull silver color I guess. I gave this dress only 4 stars because it does run small so I rented a 4P as my back up. The 4P gave me a little more wiggle room but it was too short. So I squeezed in the 2R. When I wore the 2R, it didn't give "the girls" enough room so I wore it without a bra. There's boning on the inside so that helped hold the girls up all evening. I probably won't rent this again but I really did enjoy wearing this dress.

Yes, it runs small...
Did not end up wearing this dress. The grey color is not very exciting. I usually wear a 4. I managed to get the dress zipped but it was too small - I ended up with back cleavage it was so tight! I ordered the petite length. I would have had to wear flats with this dress if I did not want to see my shoes. Overall the dress has a vintage feel. It feels a little like a costume; a little old fashioned. Overall I was not too excited about it.

The dress fits perfect. I chose petite because when I read the comments said runs large and I made a good decision. I received too many compliments. I wore this dress for a black tie wedding and I love it.

Back up dress
Yikes. I'm sure on the right person, this dress would be gorgeous, but on me, it just wasn't the right fit- the color was off, it seemed tight in the shoulders, and I felt like I was more in a costume than a regal gown. If I were smaller, perhaps it would have been more of a hit, but for me, I was so happy that it was my back up dress.

Fits well, but if you're very busty I wouldn't recommend it. It's beautiful and extremely comfortable. True to size.

VMI formal, went with roommate and good friends. Super fun night!
The dress was stunning, I got a ton of compliments, (my roommate and I both rented from RTR for the event). It was a little tight around the bust, but I'm a little top heavy. Also, more silver/grey than the online picture lets on. Overall- it was the perfect dress for the event. I'm sure it would make anyone feel like a princess!

Beautiful dress-- I got so many compliments on it, and it was absolutely perfect for prom.
The dress itself runs a little large, and the hem just barely swept the floor with my four inch heels. In fact, I was actually planning to wear a size 2R and got the 4R as backup, but unfortunately, a week before prom, I got an email from RTR telling me that the 2R was returned in poor condition and that I wouldn't be receiving it in time for my event. Naturally, I panicked, but everything worked out in the end because my free backup size fit, and just in case, the wonderful people at RTR sent me a 2R dress in a different style. I ended up wearing the 4R Rita, but nevertheless, I had a wonderful experience with the customer service. Every panicked email I sent about my new dress was answered in at least an hour, and the lady who was in contact with me (Natasha) was amazing. I know accidents happen, but RTR's awesome policy of a free second size saved my day.

Beautiful dress for my wedding!
I rented the 4R and 2P and ended up wearing the 2P. The dress was slightly loose on me at the shoulders and the waist. Since the dress has good structure, it wasn't noticeable. The straps around my shoulder blades poofed out a little bit but didn't really bother me at all. I think the 0R would have been a better fit, but I was worried about the dress running small according to the other reviews. The color is a light silver/grey. The flower details on the sides are very beautiful and really added texture to the dress. The length was right at the ground with me wearing flats. Overall, it was a stunning dress, and I got tons of compliments from our guests!

Backup Dress - Not my favorite RTR dress
The fabric is beautiful; a hard color to judge from the photos. More of a silver-gray than what you see online. I took a picture of my silver shoes (wore with another dress) next to the dress to help you judge the color. Also, the back is only 3 buttons, not fully buttoned as the model image shows. I am petite and I felt that this dress was not as flattering as other dresses I've rented- too much fabric on a small person I think. It's a beautiful dress and I think if I were taller I would have liked it better on me. It does run small in the bust as others have stated. I normally wear size 2 and I couldn't even zipper the 2 in this dress.

Gorgeous! but runs small
I absolutely loved this dress both online and in person. The color is a beautiful really light gray but its clearly not white. The mesh and applique detailing is stunning and the tulle gives it really nice movement. Unfortunately, this dress runs extremely small especially in the bust. I could only get it halfway zipped. Also, the company lost my backup size so while presumably a larger size would've worked the dress I got did not. Disappointed with the rental due to sizing issues but would definitely rent this dress in a larger size.

Obsessed with this dress!
I can't say anything bad about this dress. I was worried it would be too small, as I saw some had said that, but it wasn't for me. I have a smaller bust though and can see how it would a bit more difficult for someone with a larger bust. I was worried it would look to wedding-like for my senior prom, but it didn't at all. It was more of a silvery color rather than white. The design is so beautiful and it was also extremely comfortable, which helped. I hated sending it back because I really felt like a princess in it and I received so many compliments throughout the night. It was long, but I am short at 5'3, so that's probably why. I definitely loved it and would absolutely recommend it.

FABULOUS dress
I LOVE this dress. I wore it for prom and it was fabulous. It runs a little small in the bust, and the detachable straps that were supposed to come with the dress were not there...but otherwise it was great. It's very silvery in person...no worries if you think it looks too much like a wedding dress.

beautiful dress, way too long
As others have said, the dress is beautiful and runs small. I liked the simple, but elegant design that was just different enough to be unique. I found the color to be silver rather than white or champagne. People kept saying I looked very princess-y. As for size: I'm usually a 0 and the 2 fit like a glove (I could breathe and dance but I also skipped dessert). It was wayyy too long though. If you're on the shorter side (I'm 5'1) I'd say maybe opt for another option. I wore 4 inch heels and was constantly tripping over myself.

Most beautiful dress I've ever seen!
This dress is absolutely gorgeous! I wore it to my senior prom and I had no problem with it at all! I'm usually 6 and the 6 fit perfectly. The dress itself, minus the sheer, is not strapless! It is connected to the sheer shoulders so it stays up over your bust! However, the dress was a bit long and I had to hold it up basically all night, but to me, it was worth it because I loved it so much. I was even told that I had the best dress at prom! If you're on the fence, just get it already!!!

I had to send this one back unfortunately...
Just a lovely gown but it ran rather large on top for me. I couldn't make it work without it gaping at the arm holes. Even with bustier which isn't really necessary with this dress, It just didn't look flattering on me. Also I found the color a little on the grey side as apposed to a cream.

Enchanted
I absolutely love this dress. It is truly beautiful, and I felt amazing in it. It wasn't annoying at all to deal with, and I got compliments left and right. As for it looking like a "wedding dress" it photographs whiter that's it actually is, it actually very much silver. As for the fit, it was very small in the bust. This is coming from someone who has a VERY small bust. Please get a size larger if avalible.

I could not have picked a better dress. If you think this dress is "so you", you have to order it!
(Typical Dress Size varies between 2 and 4) I ordered this very last minute, so although I should have worn a 2R I ended up just ordering the 4L because I knew I had to have this dress. Despite being too large, it was so hip and unique, yet so elegant and graceful at the same time. If you want to stand out without wearing a super revealing dress, this is definitely the one. The back is actually a zipper with three buttons on the neckline, but I like it better that way. This dress gave me the confidence to have one of the best nights of my life. Tears will definitely be shed when I send it back tomorrow. Also, the thank you to the great customer service and stylists at RTR!

How tall were the heels that you wore? I am 5'7, and I plan on wearing 3 inch heels. Should I go with a long?

SO LOVELY!
I rented the size 8 with a size 6 backup and unfortunately the size 8 I had reserved was returned to RTR very damaged by the previous renter. RTR customer service let me know ASAP and sent two different styles in addition to my backup size. They are amazing! I tried the 6 on, fully not expecting it to even zip, but it did! Now, I didn't have a millimeter to spare, but it did zip without looking unflattering! The 8 probably would've been better without being too big, so if I were you I'd order down a size and get your normal size as a backup. The back is different than what is shown in the pictures, but to be honest I like it more than the model's pictures! it zips up and then has a delicate illusion keyhole and has three beautiful buttons at the top. Very classic and lovely.

Gorgeous comfortable dress!
I ordered two dresses, but as soon as I saw this dress and put it on, I knew this was the dress I wanted! The dress is so gorgeous and detailed. The embroidery is very neat and beautiful. I normally wear petit 0, but this 2P dress size fits perfectly. It could be too small for those who have bust size larger than B though. The cutting is so neat that the waist line sits tight on my body, but still made me so comfortable moving around the event that was held in a huge museum. One small drawback was one of the strap on the dress was broken, but wasn't my problem because the dress was so well tailored and fit me like gloves.

You look absolutely gorgeous in this dress! I'm curious, how high were your shoes? I'm 5'1", so I'm a little worried that this dress might be too long for me. Also, many people commented that the color is grey. Do you think it would be too grey to wear as a wedding dress?
ThippyMay 14, 2014
Thank you Mami. I wore about 5 inches heels. The edge sat right on the ground. The color seemed just like what's on the model. I don't think it's too grey as a wedding dress. Congratulations on your big day!

I felt like a princess!
I ordered this dress for my junior prom and I felt like a princess! The fabric, the embroidery, the skirt was all just breathtaking. I received so many compliments throughout the whole night and it broke my heart when I had to send it back. It does run small so if you're a regular size 2 like me, go for the 4. Overall, gorgeous dress!

Everyone's favorite gown!
This dress is magic! I wore it for my senior prom and got double takes and glowing compliments all night. The filigree silver embroidery was my favorite part; it looks and feels fabulous, like a fairy princess gown. So unlike any other gown there! It's not strapless, so I didn't have to worry about it falling down at all. I was worried about matching the color to my date's vest and whatnot, because the picture doesn't show the real color, really. It's actually a pearly gray, not silver and not cream or oyster or champagne as I thought. We ended up matching perfectly just by chance. I wore gray flats and the dress was about 1" off the ground. A corsage with assorted purple roses looked lovely with it. It was a little bit of a struggle to zip up the last inch of zipper, but once it was all the way up, I could breathe and bend easily. It is pretty transparent from the waist down because the skirt is just a layer of sheer satin, then tulle. It was lightweight and perfect for an April evening in North Carolina. It took me a while to say goodbye to it!

I rented this dress for my daughters' 2014 prom. Brianna looked beautiful in the dress.
The dress ran a lil small. She is a size 5 and the dress was a 6R, it fit perfectly. The detail on the dress is beautiful. The only downside to the dress was the edges. the tulle was ill cut. We didn't like it but everything else about the dress made up for it. Brianna received compliments all night long. She took a picture with a friend in a similar dress, but it was very obvious the quality of Briannas' dress was better. We will be back to this site for future events.

Did you wear heels with the dress? If so, how high were they, and was the dress dragging on the floor?
BriannaApril 24, 2014
Yejin: Yes i wore heels im naturally 5'3 i think i had 4 inch heels or a little smaller and it was perfect it was on the floor but didnt drag

Red-carpet worthy!
I wore this dress for my senior prom and let me tell you: IT WAS GORGEOUS. The fabric was so ethereal and glamorous. A lot of people told me it looked like I was at the Oscars. You will not be disappointed with this beautiful gown. Truly a one of a kind dress.

It was an overall positive experience. Dress arrived on time and in good condition. Return was easy.
Dress smelled like warehouse, mothball like when we first took it out, but nothing a little airing out didnt't fix. Dress fit was pretty true to sIze, but the bust area was a bit loose. She wore size 8R and has an A cup size, so a push-up bar was necessary to make the bust area on the dress look filled in. Color was a bit off from the model picture. It looked pistachio champagne on the website and was described as so, but it looks much more light grey champagne in person. The picture we uploaded is true to color. Another detail was the buttons on the back. On the website, the back has a line of buttons from the nape of neck to waist. But what we received, the back only had three buttons at the neck followed by a long oval keyhole to the back zipper. Little details...all in all, it was still worth it though. She received many compliments on the dress, even from people she didn't know. She seemed really happy in it and no one else had a similar dress. :)

This dress was my dream come true-- the best of RTR so far!!
I am not sure if it's only my dress, but though the body of the dress is as shown, my appliqued roses were silver (in contrast against the pale pistachio of the dress). I actually liked this even better than the way it's shown on RTR. This does run small-- if you are at all curvy in the bust you may want to size up. But this dress is literally the stuff dreams are made of. My very favorite. (Note that I did not rent this but bought it at the RTR sample sale!)

This dress made me feel like royalty!
I wore this beautiful gown for prom, and despite never having tried it on beforehand it was absolutely perfect! The amazing fit, delicate details, and billowy length made me feel nothing less than regal, and I received countless compliments that night. The 2R size, however, wouldn't have worked at all for bustier girls, so please take note of the fact that it is quite fitted at the top (similarly you do not have to wear a bra with this dress, as other reviewers have commented). Overall at an unbelievable price and such unparalleled quality I will definitely be renting from RTR again next year!

I'm wearing this for prom too! Do you remember how high your heels were?

"You look like a goddess" was the most frequent complement!
I wore this dress for my prom and I was very happy with it! The back of the dress actually has a zipper instead of buttons, but I think that makes it easier to fit into. The 4L that I was a little long on me (5'10") but it was manageable. If the dress comes with straps, you don't need to wear a bra because there is one already built in. All in all, a REAL DEAL for the price. Thanks RTR!
