Fun dress especially for a warm, desert wedding!
The only con is the inner slip rode up frequently and the elastic around the thighs didn't lay flat without adjustment over and over. The color, style and fit were so fun and I got quite a few compliments otherwise.

My husband performed the wedding ceremony.
Flattering through the hips/thighs; stunning open back; vibrant color on a beautiful lace fabric. Would definitely rent again!

Amazing, so many compliments
This dress was amazing. The color is rich and bright. The lace is super pretty and the whole dress is a nice, heavy material that stays in place. With the high neck and fitted waist it was complimentary to my bust without being showy. The length made it very appropriate - one older attendee of the wedding went on at length at how much she loved it. Mildly complicated to get on - I would definitely recommend having a friend help with the tie in the back, the zipper on mine was a little stiff possibly due to the heavy fabric. The lining was a little weird, it came down halfway and there was some kind of plastic weight on it to help keep it in place. When you sat on it it was not the most comfortable but I stopped noticing over the course of the evening (a few drinks may have helped haha). I was comfortable the whole night, very easy to dance in. I paired it with 2 inch nude heels and bright red lips that matched. I'm 5"5 and it was a long tea length on me. Fun bonus, due to the lace not being fully lined, your shadow is full of flowers.

Great dress!
Loved this dress! It was great material, well made, offered good support, and fit true to size. I wore a size 4R but it was a little roomy so I probably could have gone down to a 2R. I absolutely recommend it!

This vivid red is a showstopper for any event!
The dress is classy, fun, and subtly beautiful. I loved it so much! I normally wear a 2, but ordered late and sufficed with a 4. The fit of the four was great, but I do think I would've been even more in love (if that's even possible) if it had been a size smaller. The adjustable back and straps were cute and made fitting the dress easy. One comment about the straps is that over he course of the night, the straps began to hurt a lot on my shoulders. Honestly, that's inevitable with the construction of the dress, so it's not a knock to RTR.

Beautiful dress
I loved this dress! It was more beautiful in person than the picture shows. The color was bright and I got a ton of compliments. My only complaint was that it was a bit stiff in the waist, but this was likely necessary for the shape of the dress. I would rent again

Beautiful dress, fits perfectly
This dress is so beautiful and fit amazingly well. I wore it to my brother-in-law's wedding and got so many compliments. The top fit so nicely that I was able to wear it without a bra very comfortably and everything stayed in place all night. I could tell the dress was really well made. The length was a little longer than it looked on the website, even for a tall girl like me in heels, but I still thought it was a nice length. My biggest complaint is that the wiring in the top was sticking out in two places and poking me, but once I covered it with some moleskin it wasn't really a problem. The weird netting part of the inside layer of the skirt was also kind of uncomfortable to sit on. Overall I'm really happy with my experience: the dress arrived on time, I was happy to have a second size since I ended up wearing my backup dress, I got tons of compliments throughout the night, and the return process was super easy at the end. This dress looked amazing and I definitely recommend it, just maybe be prepared with a fashion emergency kit since the dress I wore was a little worn out.

Perfect for a summer wedding
Because of the spaghetti strap back I needed my boyfriend to help me cinch up the back and tie it. Not a big deal, but hard to do solo. Lots of compliments on the dress - glad I wore it. Material was in good shape. Overall, the dress was flattering and comfortable.

The PERFECT summer wedding dress
I wore this dress to a wedding on Cape Cod and it was absolutely gorgeous. I received so many compliments - even by someone who said it was their favorite dress of the night! The fit was great - since it ties in the back you can slightly customize it to your liking. I actually didn't even wear a bra and was totally supported (i'm a 34D) because of the ties. I was worried it was going to be a bit too long, but what you cant really tell from the website is - there is an inside slip which is slightly shorter (you can see it on my 2nd & 3rd image) which makes the dress a perfect mix of sexy & sophisticated. By far - my most favorite dress I've ever worn to a wedding! x michelle

Loved this dress
I received so many complements on this dress. The 0 fit but the straps on the back were much shorter than the straps on the 2 so I opted for wearing the 2 since the straps fit better and I didn't want to be uncomfortable all night. The 2 was a little bigger but not enough that it looked bad. Great dress!

Gorgeous!
This dress was everything that I expected! Amazing quality- the only con I had was that the wire in two spots was jabbing out and poked me all night. Regardless, this dress was so fun to wear I would rent it again!! I got compliments all night. Also- im only 5'1" so was nervous that this would be an awkward length on me but it wasn't. So if you're petite, don't worry!

The dress was gorgeous and I loved it! However, it did take help to get the zipper (which stuck) and to tie the straps on it. Would definitely rent again!

The fit was perfect, great length and great details. Such a pretty dress! I definitely needed assistance to ensure the dress was laced correctly in the back but overall it was both beautiful and comfortable! 34C and was able to wear without a bra. Highly recommend this dress!

I got so many compliments! I have never felt more fashionable at a wedding.
The dress was beautiful! All of our family said it was gorgeous. The "boning" did kind of poke at my side but that may have been because I was slouching a bit at times. The skirt under the overlay was a bit shorter than I was expecting. Overall, it really created a flattering shape and I felt confident.

Unforgettable
LOVED everything about this dress! I don't think I've ever had so many compliments in one night! It fit amazing, good length and a sexy back. The only issue with it was the boning kept poking through the fabric in the underarms. Tried some moleskin to cover it but it didn't stick for too long.

Love!
I was slightly worried about this dress being that I am 5'4 but it was so great. I rented the 2R and 4R because I am smaller on top than bottom. Both fit fine but the 4R was more comfortable and with the adjustable straps it made it perfect!

Loved this dress!!! So elegant and well-made.
Fit is excellent, the only negative is that there is a band inside the liner of the skirt that is scratchy and arrived a little misshapen. I think it is there to give the skirt shape so it doesn't just hang down. No one can notice it besides the wearer and it won't bother you when you are standing up or dancing. It is just a little uncomfortable to sit down on. Still would highly recommend renting!! I would get it again.

Great dress for a summer wedding in Chicago. Back is stunning. Dress is very comfortable too. Classy yet very feminine with the way it ties up in the back. Highly recommend!!

New England Outdoor Wedding
All around perfect dress! The color is vibrant and photographs well. Only con is the underskirt was a little short on me where it rode up a bit (but I'm very long legged/short torso) so it could be just me. 100% would buy if that was an option!

Absolute showstopper
Got lots of complainants! And absolute beautiful color. have a straight body type, read some reviews and went for the 8 instead of my usual 6. It fit more comfortably. Definitely a no bra dress which was fine with my small bust. The dress was structure but light enough for a summer wedding. The slip underneath is strange with some netting at the bottom, but didn't bother me! The only issue was the plastic part of framing for the bodice poked at me, but I was able to bend down.

Perfect for a "Beach Formal" Wedding!
I wore this to a semi-formal July wedding in Newport, RI and it was PERFECT! I received compliments from the second I arrived to the moment I left. The dress was comfortable from start to finish (with the exception of the annoying under-layer that was a bit itchy) and, most importantly, was comfortable to dance in. It was tricky to get into because of the back being a little more complicated so I needed to ask my mom and my sister for help securing me into the dress but once I was in it was so easy to wear and I didn't have to worry about it. You can't wear a standard bra becasue of the open back. I have a smaller bust and found that there was a little too much space in the dress. I used fashion tape to secure the dress to my body to avoid any mishaps. I did notice that the top of the dress is fairly structured so I think that girls with average/larger busts would be fine going without a bra in this dress. Since the top is adjustable and can be made as loose or tight as needed I think that most people would be comfortable without a bra in this dress. Overall, this is a great dress for a summer wedding!

Pros: did not need bra/sticky boobs. Adjustable straps allow you to tighten bust accordingly. I wore a size 6 and I am 5'9", 145lbs, 34C. Many compliments all night.

Stunning color and back
Loved wearing this dress, probably my favorite rental to date. Color was absolutely stunning and the length was perfect. I love the lace detail and the back speaks for itself. Comfortable to wear and dance in, and my boyfriend couldn't take his eyes off of me. Fits true to size, a definite winner!

Pop of color
Ordered this as a back up-- the fit is forgiving due to the adjustable straps... hard to wear a bra, obviously... but could get away with a NuBra if needed. I didn't end up wearing it in the end. The lining was a bit worked over due to multiple drycleanings, but the lace was in great shape. Would maybe rent again for the right occasion...

Bright, flirty, and comfortable!
The color of this dress is incredible, and the teal earrings (also from RTR) really brought the whole look together. It looks AMAZING in pictures, indoors or out. I was worried it would be too long and that I would feel out of place/too formal, but the strappy back and fun, eyelet design made the whole look fun and sassy. I also think the pseudo halter top design of the dress is very slimming, espeically if you're worried about your chest or arms looking big.

Beautiful but worn
I wore this dress to my bridal shower and had been excited about it for months. It was as beautiful as other women's reviews and photos. I had changed my mind about having the 6 as the backup size to my 4 and called a month ago. Unfortunately they were out of the 2. I figured the 4 would be ok anyway. It was definitely too big on me. I'm sure I'm the only one who noticed that though. I would have been more comfortable in a smaller size. It was also worn where some of the wiring of the bodice was sticking out. I managed to stick them back in so it wouldn't poke me. Also the under layer of the dress was a strange wiring that I had to iron for a half hour the night before. Beautiful dress, many compliments, but wish I had a smaller size and the imperfections were taken care of.

Fun and unique dress but not maintained well!
I wore this dress for engagement photos and it was so perfect! Add a pop of color and the lace was really fun. My biggest complaint is that on both sizes I rented the straps to tie the dress were very clearly broken off and were about a foot shorter than they should've been, making it extremely hard to tie! Very frustrating considering you can't wear this without tying. It would've been nice if RTR would've fixed this. Also, on one of them the skirt underneath wasn't dry cleaned correctly and was a weird shape so I had to iron it multiple times. I ordered a 2 and 4. I easily could've wore the 2 but with the straps broken off on both the 4 gave me a little more room to tie. I would recommend if RTR fixed all straps!

Amazing dress
This dress is amazing! The color and material is gorgeous. I got so many compliments! It fits true to size but was bigger in the chest area on me so I had to tie the back very tight which hurt my skin a little bit but it was worth it! I was nervous about renting because of the midi length but it was perfect.

Perfect bridal shower dress
Dress was true to size. Was very comfortable and the fit was amazing. The inside skirt was a little short but I was able to make it work by wearing a nude slip. Loved the top and back and the cut was very flattering. I am pear shaped and this made my hips look slim. I was able to go braless but I have a small bust. I don't usually wear red, but this color was so nice and it was a nice color for a day bridal shower. Would definitely recommend.

Perfect summer wedding dress
I loved the color and the fit was perfect. I got compliments all night! Like some other reviews, the straps do start to dig into your shoulders and the plastic boning was coming through the fabric in the front (very sharp and the only reason why I'm giving 4 starts). The back was beautiful and way more secure than I was expecting! Didn't wear a bra and was never falling out. Overall beautiful dress, especially loved the lace.
