Fun and Flirty

The bust is tough (and I'm a b cup). Normally I wear a zero, but was so glad I ordered the 2 as a back up. I also had to pin up the length. So fun to dance in! Pockets are handy.

Love the style but way too small!

Like the other reviews, the bust was way too small! I normally wear a 6 and the 8 wouldn't even zip up. I loved the style and the fabric though and will definitely be renting again but in a larger size.

Perfect fall wedding dress.

Fits tight around the breasts and waist which gives a nice contrast to the lose flow of the bottom. Very elegant. Has fun pockets. Fabric is thick and full.

Absolutely beautiful dress!

This dress was so lovely. Everyone absolutely loved it. I wore it to my work's black tie anniversary party and it was just perfect. I am usually between a size 6/8 and I ended up wearing the size 8. I also ordered the size 10 for a backup and it was falling off. Keep in mind a few of the reviews said that this might not be a good choice if you are busty and I will have to say that I disagree. I am quite busty and the dress was absolutely stunning and accentuated my waist line. I am 5'7 and the back of the dress just hit the floor while wearing 4 inch heals. The RTR sample pic is the true color of the dress. I don't usually ever choose strapless dresses but I loved the color of it so much, I was willing to try it. I was able to dance all night and it did not feel like it was going to fall down, so if a strapless dress is what you're in the market for, this dress is just the ticket!

The style of the dress?

I got lots of compliments on this dress! My complaints were that the dress fit ran small. Also, the bone ribbing in the corset was poking out of the fabric (from multiple wears probably) and at the end of the night it looked like my abdomen was attacked by a cat. Oh and good thing I couldn't fit into the size 6R because the thread was fraying at the top and bottom.

hidden gem

This dress was absolutely stunning - I received compliments all night long! The shape is beautiful and the fabric is thick and quilted, making it appropriate even for cooler months. It runs true to size - I usually wear a size 0 but rented a size 2 and it was a little loose in the bust area.

Fabulous

I felt like a princess! This dress moves beautifully! The only down side is having to keep pulling up the strapless top, but I twirled in that dress over and over! I loved it!

This dress is a head turner and you will standout in crowd!!!

I rented this dress loving what I saw in the picture. When I received the dress, it was a lot heavier than I expected and I requested another back up dress but the backup didn't end up coming so I wore this dress. It ended up being perfect. It was heavy but was great for fall/winter event and it fit well. This dress is a lot of fun and the color is beautiful. I definitely recommend. If you have larger bust, I'd go a size up. I'm 5'2 32B and it fit tight but comfortable around my chest.

Would have worked, but I didn't wear it.

This was my back up dress, I was surprised how worn it looked. It had little snags all over and the dress was tearing away from the zipper. It was still stunning on, somewhat snug, but in a good way. My husband did not like how voluminous it was on bottom. Had it been in better condition I would have worn it.

Compliments all night long and a super fun dress!

The 12 was a tad big but the dress is so hard to zip I would have needed some very serious help getting into the 10. Wore the 12 and spent a lot of time pulling the dress up. That being said, plenty of structure and it was easy to wear without a bra, the pockets are amazing and I had compliments rolling in all night long!

A fun, elegant dress that makes a statement!

I normally wear between a 4 and a 6 and in this case the 6 fit me like a glove. Such a fun dress and lots of compliments, several people said it was the best dress of the night! I love the uniqueness of the quilted pattern. I'm almost 5'8" and the back of the dress didn't quite touch the ground in my heels but it looked great and was perfect for my red carpet event!

This dress lived up to my dreams!!

I had been eyeing this dress to wear as my last look for a multi-event long Indian wedding weekend. I did try it on in the showroom and it was just as perfect as I hoped it would be. The fabric is very heavy but it was manageable for a Thanksgiving weekend in Florida. I felt like a woodland princess in this dress. Paired it with gold and sapphire accessories to play up the jewel tones. I am 5'9" and wore a 4.5 inch heel, and the 8R nearly dragged on the ground. Overall a perfect rental, if you've been waffling over this dress just go ahead and choose it!

Amazing Dress!

I absolutely loved this dress. It does run small, I originally ordered the 2 and had to have the 6 overnighted. I agree with the fit comments that this style would be best for an A to C cup. I am between a 34C and 32D and the dress was definitely tight on the bust. The length in the back was perfect for me, I was able to wear a low kitten heal. I noticed that some of the reviews mentioned that the dress had a lot of wear and tear, I didn't see his with either of the sizes I tried, both were in perfect condition.

This dress made me stand out like morning glory in a field of daisies, it had its own personality.

Defiantly runs smaller so if your normally a 4, order a 4 and a 6.

Gorgeous sumptuous fabric!

Unfortunately I was not able to wear this beautiful dress. I followed the advice of previous reviewers and sized up, much to my dismay it was too large and the correct size was not available for the date of my event :( For reference, I ordered the 6R, with the 8R as my back up size, but needed a 4R. I probably could have made the 6R work, but it would not have been flattering and I would have been pulling it up all night.

Perfect!

This dress was perfect! The colors are even better than pictured. The material is almost quilted feeling, making it a little heavy, but it was perfect for this fall, outdoor event. The 2 and the 4 were basically the same besides length, so I went with the 2 because I'm pretty short. The pockets came in handy! I received a TON of compliments! And won homecoming queen in it :)

Loooooooove this dress

Dress was amazing but definitely had some set backs. The zipper was extremely difficult and the hem was definitely worn, torn, and frayed but the material is so thick and heavy it wasn't noticeable and was able to make it work for the wedding but wish I hadn't received a dress that was so blatantly used

Never in my life have I received so many compliments on a dress..... Absolutely perfect!

I am 5'5 & the length was perfect. I usually wear between a 2 to 4 in dresses & the 2 fit like a glove. The 4 fit as well, but the top was a little big for me. Overall, absolutely perfect. The dress was in great condition & as well.

Beautiful style, color and shapes body well

This was my first option and I had another one but a different style. I loved this for my height. Shapes my waist really well. It dragged a bit even with 3inch heels but it was still great. I love the pockets. I highly recommend this and it's elegant. Pictures don't do justice!!!!

Prom

I gave this four stars because there were a few threads so up close you could tell it wasn't brand new, also the clasp in the back only had the hook which made zipping it up eve more difficult than it already was. The coloring is even more amazing in person and I got so many compliments at prom. Everyone was amazed that it had pockets. So happy I went with RTR!

Such a bright and unique look!

The dress was absolutely beautiful! Everyone kept telling me that it flowed and sat on my body instead of making me look wide. The dress is a little snug around the torso, the bone in the dress began to eventually hurt my sides because of my hips pushing it. Besides that, the dress was perfect. The height was insanely perfect for my height (which blew my mind due to the fact that I'm so short) I'm 5'0 and the dress sat perfectly above my feet to show off my shoes, and the back lightly sat on the floor. It was not very heavy at all. The base of the dress was darker than the picture so in all reality, black shoes went perfectly. I tried nude but the dress drowned them completely. Overall, the perfect dress for my senior prom.

Perfect for black tie optional wedding!

The top was a bit tighter than I expected but i tend to be between a 2 and a 4 so I wouldn't say it runs small. It's a heavy dress so it was good for a fall wedding. Got compliments on it all night and didn't want to take it off!

Always wanted to rent this dress and was so happy I finally did!!

This dress was everything I dreamed it would be!! I wore it to a black tie wedding and it went perfectly with my husband's navy tux!! The fabric was thick and rich and at first I was worried it would slide down because of the weight and the fact that I have an athletic V shaped upper body. Luckly, I was wrong and the added stick around the top if the boddice helped the dress stay put even through hours on the dance floor. I styled it with a statement necklace and royal blue Manolos, my wedding shoes! As always, I am so happy with my RTR experience and can't wait to rent again!!

Fun dress, beautiful color!

I was worried that the dress would be too heavy for a July wedding in Atlanta but it wasn't! Felt great in it and got tons of compliments! The pockets were a big plus!!! Lovely dress but size up! The top part was really tight and I consider my self to have average size boobs. I'd rent again!! First RTR experience! I'll definitely use this service again!

So many compliments!

Luxurious material. Had a great shape. I thought it stayed up very well for a strapless dress. I have a 34C cup and did end up wearing a strapless bra for some extra shape in the chest area. The zipper is hard to get up because of the sharp angle at the bodice. Really fun to rent this dress. It was such a standout and so many women approached me asking about it.

Beautiful Blues

Loved this dress. Unfortunately a few issues with fit. The size 8 would have been better, but could not zip up the zipper. At least I had the 10 and b/c the upper bodice runs small it kind of worked. The boning in the dress however was coming out-so I had to tape it down from not stabbing me. A few times had to hike the dress up- which I hate- and those darn black hanger straps would peek out. I really loved the dress- wish the 8 would have worked as I think that would have made a difference.

This dress made me feel fancy!

This dress was a ton of fun and I loved the pockets! If you have anything more than a B cup, I do not think this dress will work. Even with a small chest, it was a squeeze and definitely not flattering to that area. Other than that, I loved it! The material was perfect and thick and felt high quality. Also, the colors were beautiful!

Loved this dress!

Received compliments the whole night in this dress! Wore it to a gala downtown and was absolutely perfect. The bust really doesn't give you any room for error so if you're a C cup or bigger, make sure to get a larger size as the backup. I wore the 2R but definitely could've worn the 4. Back zipper was also snagged a bit on string and couldn't zip it myself. I'm 5'0", wore 4 inch heels and it still had a decent train but loved the dramatic effect!

I am in love with this dress! Fit true to size, might be snug in the chest for women with a larger bust size. I'm only 5'0", so the back did drag on the ground a little, but it didn't look awkward. It was fun to dance in and I'm still getting compliments days after the event. Icing on the cake was the pockets!

Great first rental!

This was my first RTR rental. The dress, alternate size, and backup all arrived on time. The dress was great. It did seem a bit worn, but given that the dress is brocade, the wear was camouflaged well. I LOVED the pockets (so great, why don't more designers add pockets!?!). The color are very rich and jewel like. I liked my RTR experience so much that I joined Unlimited. Great experience! Great service!
