My RTR experience was great and is definitely do it again

I used this dress for my engagement photos. The dress is super sparkly and I was afraid it wouldn't do well in photos but to my surprise it worked out perfectly!!! Everyone loved the dress. It looks like more of a burgundy color in person rather than red but I loved how everything turned out with my first RTR experience

I wore this for my holiday/birthday party and got compliments all night!

This dress is a showstopper. While not overly bilingy, the sparkle of the deep red is beautiful. FYI, the dress has no stretch, so if you are hippy like me, you may want to size up for your backup size. I wore it with a beige bra. I highly recommend it! #holiday #birthday

Stunning dress!

I was skeptical about this rental because it was new to the site and there were no reviews or pictures of other girls wearing it. Boy am I glad I took the plunge! The picture does not do this dress justice. It is super sparkly and ultra figure flattering. I wore it to a late November wedding and was overwhelmed by compliments. This may be my favorite rental yet!

I didn't wear this dress

The dress was very pretty, but I didn't wear it to the wedding I had gotten it for. It was too long on me...I'm 5'4" and it hit well below my knee. It fit well except it was a little loose at my waist, so was not flattering on me as I looked straight with no curves. I felt that the showing under slip is a bit short for someone my age. It would look great if you are taller, younger and have more curves. Story of my life!

.

I received this dress and it was way too small (size 14). After calling RTR, the customer service rep said this designer runs small. The size 12 dress I received still had tags on it so maybe it is a newer style (hence the lack of reviews). It's very pretty and shimmery, it just didn't fit my body. I am a few months post-partum but would definitely size up if you are not long & lean in the waist and bust.

Beautiful sequined dress perfect for a formal affair

Form fitting, quality lace embroidery, a bit darker than the pictures. A bit itchy, but that is to be expected with sequins

Great Christmas party dress. Flattering & conservative!

I can usually wear a size 10 in dresses with a flared bottom, but this dress was definitely form fitting so I needed the 12 for my wide hips. Ladies with hips, you'll want to order a backup size up, just in case, because the dress has no stretch. The color was lovely, more like a burgundy red, and the coloring made the sequins very classy and not too flashy. I'm 5'4" and it hit just below the knee. The bust area was great maybe with a bit of room to spare.

Perfect for a winter wedding!

I got compliments left and right all night! Perfect when paired with a red lip! No stretch in the dress, but that means built in spanx. Couldn't even see the bra I was wearing either.

This dress had the right amount of pizzaz, without going over the top. Also, good for a work party!

You don't need a bra, since there's molded cups. My waist is a 10, but my chest is a A cup, so it was a bit big on top for me. The material is a little scratchy, and the dress doesn't give you as much room to dance as I thought, but I was the first person to wear the dress, so it may just be tight for that reason. Overall, got lots of compliments, and would definitely recommend this for a holiday or work party. It's sparkly, but also classy and form-fitting.

Ok overall but one size smaller would have been better.

This was my back up style for a December wedding but I didn't end up wearing it. It was OK, but fit me a little loosely. The fit and the cut combined felt a matronly on me. I think if I had sized down and it was more curve hugging, that would have made it just sexy enough. It would be a great choice for a wedding or holiday party.

Great for holiday event

Beautiful dress but the pictures of the dress didn't represent well the short slip/lining under the lace. Be prepared for this if going to a more conservative event. The slip/lining kept riding up. I'm currently between a 6/8 depending on brand, so found it ran pretty true to size. Beautiful sequin/lace detail, perfect for holiday.

Perfect Dress for elegant Holiday party in New York City!

This dress is absolutely beautiful! I was concerned it was going to be a little to conservative, but it truly fit like a glove and was the perfect length. The sequence on the dress gives the right amount of sparkle for a classy look, and the see through lace on the top and bottom makes it so pretty. I received compliments all night long! Loved this dress!

I was going stag to a wedding and wanted something that popped! Perfect combo!

I ordered the 6 & 8 as I was told David Meister ran small; I found them true to size and ended up wearing the 6. The 8 would have provided a little more wiggle room, but the dress looks much better fitted. I was able to sit, dance and move without any issues. When I tried on the 8, the zipper was very difficult to move. The 6 I had no problem. May have simply been an issue with that particular 8, but note you may need help zipping up and down.

Christmas Dress!

I really liked the dress as it was comfortable, flattering and perfect for a ballet in December. I received lots of compliments and it really gave that Christmas festive feel. The dress has gorgeous detailing and though it's long it has see through fabric above the knee. Great design!

I selected this dress to wear to a fancy work holiday party.

The dress is beautiful but sadly I didn't wear it because it was far too long (I should have known - I'm pretty short!). This is a beautiful dress but I would only rent if you are 5'6" and above.

Great dress. Got lots of compliments on it.

Fit as expected. Sequins are sometimes a tad itchy, but this one was fine with very thick mesh backing.

Fabulous! Will definitely use them again. Beautiful dress that fit perfect. Easy to order as well.

I am 5'10" and I weigh 150lbs 34D and the size 6 was perfect for me! It is rare that I can order something online and it actually fit! I wore this for a firefighter banquet. It was gorgeous! It's more of a maroon than red. It is lace and sequin.

Sadly I was unable to wear the dress.

Although the dress was beautiful it wasn't cut to fit a woman with a big bust. The dress zipped up but it was obvious from the cut that my breasts were not accounted for. I'm sure if I kept going up in size my bust area would have fit but I'd be swimming in the dress. I'm likely to try this service one more time to see if I can find a dress that is both beautiful and is cut to fit better. But I suspect much like with most designer items, they do not take into account women with larger bust sizes.

Process was difficult (their system needs some work) but final outcome was great.

Dress was lovely and flattering but the sequels on the sleeves were kind of curled and scratched my arm a bit. But otherwise great dress. Very elegant.

Liked it...but did not LOVE it!

Beautiful color, flattering fit...but just did not love it. Felt more like Mother of the Bride style....but that's my fault for choosing such a conservative dress. Sequins were sparkly, but not too sparkly! Wore for a fundraiser/gala.

I got complements on the dress from everyone, from the MC to the bartenders.

The dress fit great, I'd ordered the 14 and the 16 and wore the 16 because while the 14 fit the 16 was more comfortable for dancing and the sleeves has a little more room on my arms. The color is a little darker in person but it's still a fantastically bold ruby/garnet color. The dress itself is a comfortable length for dancing and for a more formal event but the shell layer under the lace does ride up a little as the night goes on, not enough that you'd be showing any skin but definitely something to watch if you are wearing shapewear shorts (I'd opt for black ones).

This dress was sent to me as a backup when my first choice dress was unavailable. I really liked the fit of the dress, was true to size and very flattering. The dress is definitely more burgundy than red, but it looks great on!

Perfect Dress!

The dress fit beautifully and was true to size. I wore the 4, which was only slightly different than the 2. The dress has a slip underneath, and the bra area is padded (I got away with not wearing a bra). The lace overlay is beautiful with sparkle that's not too over the top! I received a ton of compliments and it was comfortable enough for an all day affair!

Great fit and great quality!

I am very busty with a size 36DDD and this dress was very flattering for my body type. GREAT quality and looked as if never worn. Perfect length for my height. Very slenderizing for someone who may be self conscious of their tummy.

Everything about this dress was perfect

This dress was amazing! So easy to wear. The top is just lace so I wore a strapless bra. The material is body hugging but not uncomfortably tight. The lace overlay part of the dress was just at the bottom of my knee but the lining ended above my knee. I got so many compliments. I would rent this dress again in a heartbeat.

Lovely and tasteful party dress!

Loved this. Wore it to a fancy dinner at a casino, it felt right for that level of formality with a fun hard-sided clutch and simple nude pumps. It's not too sexy, and I was told it seemed age-appropriate by someone who didn't know my age... I think that means it was fun and sexy and tasteful, no sky-high slit, no crazy cleav, but cut for a defined waste and bum while still being covered up. LOVED IT.

Typically I don't wear sequined dresses, but loved the color and style of this classy dress.

I received several compliments on the dress from strangers. It's a classy dress that has some sex appeal with the short liner in the skirt.

Sassy and classy - statement dress

I'm a regular RTR girl and this dress was hands down my favorite. Everything about it was stunning. The detail and the color were striking. The fit was true to size. I wore this to my office holiday party and received loads of compliments. I'm busty and didn't have any issues with the fit or zip. It was comfortable considering the amount of sequins detailed.

Beautiful dress! Very classy. Great for spouse's work holiday party.

Fit well, was a bit roomy in the chest for me but with a padded strapless bra it worked great. The sheer part is very tasteful, but note that the lining in the skirt only goes mid-thigh. Also, the dress doesn't have a slit in the back which made it a bit restrictive (not a problem for my event, but if you had to walk a lot in it this would be annoying).

Beautiful color, just the right amount of sparkle

I rented this dress for NYE and loved it! The dress runs true to size (I'm between an 8 and a 10, depending on the make, and wore an 8). As a busty woman, I appreciated that there was plenty of coverage on the back of the dress, plus enough room in the chest to feel comfortable. Note that you will have to wear a strapless or longline bra because it's possible to see bra straps through the fabric on the top of the dress. I'll definitely keep this one in the back of my mind for future events.

The dress runs large around the bust and waist. There are sequins embedded in the dress, so there is a lots of shine and shimmer making it dressy.
