Stunning! An absolute eye catcher.

I am a standard size 2 in Calvin Klein, etx. This dress was a similar fit, hitting all of the right places. The materials are luxe, the embroidery is stunning. I wore this to work and then a political fundraiser, I cannot count how many compliments I received while wearing this garment. Beautifully crafted.

Gorgeous dress

I usually wear a size 4 but received a size 6 due to availability. The top fit me well but the lower portion of the dress was a bit loose. I was comfortable all night and received many compliments. Would definitely recommend

Such a unique dress!

I wore this dress to our friends special anniversary dinner at Balthazar NYC! I felt so glamorous in this dress! I sometimes wear a 4, but more often a 6, this was a perfect 6. It was flattering, and It wasn't so tight that I had to suck in my tummy all night. I would love to own it!

Perfect for a wedding

I wore this dress for a wedding that was held in a museum and it was perfect! Petite ladies, don't be shy to rent this! I am only 5ft tall and the length still looked great!

Beautiful dress! Classy and flattering. Beautiful details and fit

This dress is gorgeous! It hit right below the knees and was form fitted throughout without being clingy. The flower embroidery is even prettier in person than in the photos. Really beautiful! Probably my favorite rental so far.

Tons of compliments!

Beautiful detail work on this dress. I had many compliments from complete strangers. Dress fits true to Suzanne and is very comfortable. It is conservative, but still sexy with the sheer panels and the curve hugging silhouette. I would definitely wear this again.

Sent by RTR as replacement

RTR sent me this dress when the one I ordered became unavailable. While it wasn't really my style I did try it on and it fit really well. It was a great length, and very flattering.

NY Botanical Garden Wedding

For a wedding in a garden, this was a perfect choice. I had to throw a sweater on because the weather was a bit too crisp to go without. The material moved just enough and the straps of my bra couldn't really be distinguished from the dress itself. A great dress!

So elegant, this may be my favorite rental to date!

I wore this dress to a symphony performance and after party. I sometimes have trouble getting fitted dresses to work for both my bust and hips, as I'm pear shape; however, no struggle with this one! Slid right on and hugged everything perfectly. It seems very well made and I had no issues with wrinkling from the shipping. Only note of caution is that the bottom of the dress is narrow, so walking up and down stairs I noticed my range of motion was restricted. Not a fatal flaw by any means. I highly recommend this dress!

Great dress!!!

I rented this dress for a wedding. It's even nicer in person! Very high quality, and the flowers really pop from the background. I'm usually a 4 or 6, so I ordered both sizes. Some reviews said the dress runs small so I thought I'd be wearing the 6. The 4 fit perfectly, though. I got tons of compliments all night. The only minor drawback is the dress is cut very snug at the bottom around the knees. It was a little hard to walk in, but was fine as long as I didn't try to walk quickly. Highly recommend!!!!

Dress so great I rented it twice in two weeks!

What a great dress! I wore it for my parents 50th wedding anniversary party and the next weekend for my company holiday party... I love it so much, I hope I have another event to wear it to again!! Sizing was true to size and very flattering length. Love it!!

Really beautiful elegant dress. Ran tight and doesn't give you much room to breath but the dress itself was well made and very beautiful. I ordered it as a back up dress and I'm glad I did. Really beautiful

Perfect for a fall wedding with lots of compliments.

I loved the classy look of this dress. The top was sheer enough to add just the right amount of sexiness while remaining classy. It fit true to size on my narrow build. I received many compliments throughout the night.

Classic LBD with a little flair

Beautiful dress when I received it but was a bit matronly for my taste. Also a little itchy in arm area and the lining The flowers in the dress are beautiful and it has built in bra which was nice Overall okay dress

Everyone complemented me on the unique beautiful dress

Great dress for our Office Holiday party. There is a built in bra which is nice. Nice details without being too much. I'm 5'11"- great length as many times the dresses are too short. I love the variety on RTR and will continue to rent for events to change things up. My little black dress only goes so far.

The fit of this dress was GREAT!! I love anything with mesh or a lacy overlay and this dress really did it for me. I was worried that it would be "too much" but it really was my style. I received lots of compliments too! I would rent this dress again in a heartbeat.

A beautiful Christmas Dress

The dress was stunning. I received compliments all evening long. I did find it to be tight through the hips. I normally wear an 8 and was happy that I sized up for my backup. I ended up wearing the 10 as I felt it allowed more movement and comfort.

Perfect for an office holiday party

True to size, the bottom is a bit tight where the dress ends but not very restrictive could definitely still dance with no problem! I loved the netting up top and the flowers are beautifully crafted. I paired it with black tights, black wedges, and a black wrap for an evening look. Would rent again in a heart beat!

Great dress, but didn't make the cut

Tried this dress for a work function, but my other option was cuter. This dress is a little snug with no stretch. It runs true to size, but might fit long on shorter gals. The detail is beautiful and the cut is very classic and professional. Would be perfect for a daytime wedding, a shower, work special event, or formal dinner.

Beautiful, Conservative Date Night Dress

The overlay raised pattern design was gorgeous! The boat neck neckline wasn't that flattering on me (they never are) and it made the dress a little less sexy, but as the night wore on I grew to love it and felt very glamorous. Sometimes showing less is more. It may be a challenge to figure out where to wear this too. For me, it was too dressy for work, but not dressy enough for a formal affair, and not sexy enough for a cocktail party/date. Perhaps a daytime wedding? I ended up wearing it to a fancy restaurant date and felt overdressed but beautiful! I am typically between a 4 and a 6 and the 6 fit perfect.

Botanical Garden Holiday Party

I was 5 months pregnant when I wore this to my hubby's holiday party and it fit great over my growing bump. Received a lot of compliments because of the beautiful design. If not for my chest being a bit tight (prego and all), it would be even better but otherwise it was great!!

Beautiful, elegant gown

This dress was easy to wear, fit was perfect and with the built in support I didn't need a bra (I am a DD cup so I was surprised). Elegant dress felt just right for the occasion. I would also wear to a dressy work event and may rent this one again.

Pretty floral!

The floral print embroidery reminds me of cherry blossoms. It was comfortable and I got a lot of compliments. I just wore it for work. I did notice the sleeves limited my range of motion raising my arms over my head.. but it wasn't a big deal. Fit - I am 5'6", 36c, 155 and I felt it ran true to size. I wore an 8.

Decent dress but not a must rent

The dress was well made & decent enough. The overlay was a bit itchy around the arms. The bottom of the dress, under the overlay, kept turning up bc of the pull of the overlay, and that looked a bit odd. The dress fit true to size & was OK for a a conservative wedding (esp when it's a bit chilly out), but this isn't my favorite dress.

Beautiful detail & fit!

I wore this for an evening award event at work. It was perfect! Conservative but also very flattering. The embroidery was so beautiful. It was true to size and hit right at my knee. It was a little tight at the bottom so I had to be careful going up stairs but that was only one small negative. This is probably my favorite dress I have ever rented, wish I could have kept it!

Beautiful dress

Very nice dress just don't try to run. Narrows in the skirt with no slit so it is slim fitting and shows off curves. This also makes it difficult to walk fast. Embroidery work is lovely.

Great dress for the holidays!

I wore this dress to the office as I had a nice lunch out and an evening event. With a jacket or sweater, it was perfect for the office. The sheer top makes it great for a nice event - especially during the holidays. I got a 4 to fit my 21 week pregnant bump (132 lbs) and it fit great! Fits well along the body and fitted in hips without being too tight. A friend said I should buy this dress. A great rental!
