I loved opening the box! I didn't get to wear the dress but when I tried it on, I felt glamorous.

This was a heavy dress. I was a little worried about it drooping down but it was beautiful. I didn't get to wear it after all but I liked it a lot.

The cuffs on this dress really stood out and got me a lot of compliments. I felt like a princess.

The material on this dress was very soft and the design of the dress covered up any imperfections. This dress flatters any body shape. Wear this dress with silver shoes and necklace to really make the cuffs stand out.

This is a really nice dress. I could tell the dress was well-constructed and fit well.

This was a backup dress when my original choice was too small. I thought this ran a bit big, but it wasn't excessively so. The neckline goes maybe half an inch to an inch lower than photographed, which gives it just the right amount of allure. The photographs of me are on someone else's phone (go figure), but it photographed on me exactly like the photographs on the website. The customer service I received in picking out a backup dress was OUTSTANDING, and hats off to the staff at RTR for not missing a beat and getting me ready for NYE.

Modest elegance. As a plus size woman, this dress made me feel very comfortable.

Size worn: 20W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I ordered my size and the smaller size as my back up, thinking the jersey fabric would run large. While the dress was very true to size, I think a size larger would have been nice and more slimming.

Beautiful and Flattering!

Size worn: 18W
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I received so many compliments on this dress! It was lovely, and warm enough for the cold winter weather. However, I wish I would have gotten a size smaller as I would have liked the bottom to be tight enough to stay in place. I found myself pulling up the waist throughout the night, but it was worth the inconvenience! Definitely order your usual size and one smaller!

Perfect dress

Size worn: 18W
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I've recently gained some weight and have been self-conscious about it. This dress was great because it showed off my legs and covered up the areas that I'm sensitive about (tummy). It was beautiful, easy to wear, super comfortable and elegant! I'll rent it again.

I wore this to my birthday dinner in Miami. It was a breezy evening so the long sleeves were welcome! Both the 20 and 22 fit but I felt more comfortable in the larger size. This is a very forgiving dress for ladies with extra curves in the bust and derrière. The length was at the knee which is ideal for me. I received many compliments and felt chic and sexy and comfortable. Amen!

The fit of this dress was perfect. It wasn't too tight but fit my figure perfectly! I was worried that this dress would fit someone that was tall but not as full figured as I was, but I was wrong. I received a lot of compliments on the dress.

Elegant with just the right touch of sparkle

This dress looks so much better on than it does hanging on the hanger. However, I'm not sure if I should have used a smaller size? My dress kept sliding off my waist and I was constantly having to adjust it. However, very comfy and elegant dress.

I ordered this dress for a 1920's themed party. I ended up not wearing it but it would have been appropriate and comfortable. When I tried it on it fit really well and I loved the forgiving style. I noticed a small amount of pilling on the skirt (right where the cuffs rub) but not too noticeable. I would order this again for maybe a holiday party or winter wedding.

Great looking AND comfy!

Size worn: 20W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I was expecting two sizes, RTR only shipped one, but it fit so NBD. Might run a tad large. Rented for a school auction, where I'd be on my feet, moving around taking photos. Was easy to manage (no pulling or preening necessary) easy to move in even with camera equipment strapped all over me. Wish it had pockets, but that's totally minor. Got tons of compliments, especially on the cuffs. They're funkier than they look from the pics (not just rhinestones, but black stones and metal bars as well).

The dress was perfect for the occasion. It was true to size and the length was perfect knee length for my height (I'm tall). The dress highlighted my curves and was able to hide my belly well. Definitely loved the way it looked and got many compliments.

Everyone LOVED the way this dress hugged my curves and I did too!

Size worn: 18W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The fit was perfect, it hugged my curves but wasn't too tight. The sleeves were absolutely flattering and gorgeous. I got compliments all night! Great for a full bust I am a 40H cup and I still had a bit of room so I would say it runs a bit big in the bust but perfect everywhere else. The cuffs were SO gorgeous! I needed very little jewelry to finish the look. Perfect with a dark smokey eye and nude lip.

Great dress for winter because of the heavy lining. Not appropriate for warmer weather at all!

Heavy lining makes it a warm dress. Flattering neckline. Winter dress, not appropriate for the spring/summer months.

Loved the top. A little snug on the bottom.

Size worn: NONE
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I rented this for a party and had to wear something else. I got a 18 and 16 as back up as some had said it runs big. The top half is bigger for sure but that's how it's supposed to be. My bottom is larger so while the 18 fit, I didn't like the look. A 20 may have worked perfect but I didn't have time to exchange. If you are pear shaped, go a size up. The dress stretches but too tight and it's not a good look. Gorgeous dress that I may try to rent again in a larger size.

Simple Elegance

Size worn: 16W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This dress was so comfortable and forgiving in fit. I loved the simple elegance and bold cuffs. This dress brought so many complements. It fit true to size. I a, 5'7 and it hit me right at the knee. I am a size 16 hourglass shape and the 16 was perfect. The dress is a bit on the heavy side and if it were for a summer event could be too hot. I wore this at an indoor event and was fine. Packaging was perfect and the east return made this dress a complete hit. Can't go wrong renting this dress and so flattering for many body types.

Really pretty dress with some great detail on the sleeves but this was all wrong for my body type. Great if you are trying to hide the tummy and show off your legs, but the baggy top just made me look frumpy and the tight skirt only accentuated my wide hips.

I loved this dress! If it wasn't rented, I would have kept it. I felt amazing in it and would wear it again! The length was perfect and the long sleeves were perfect for the 40 degree Ohio weather. I didn't even need a coat. The dress was super comfy and very flattering.

Dress fit fantastic. Roomy in the bust but not too much. Hugs in all the right places without making you look like a stuffed sausage. Super comfortable. Note that the beading is starting to become a bit worn but you wouldn't notice unless you looked closely.

Family outing to Wicked. I loved the dress.

Due to a mix up with shipping, I ended up with this dress, I ended up with a 14, 16, & 18. The 14 fit the best, even though I normally wear a 16. It was pretty, and flattering, and I got lots of compliments, which is always nice. We also ordered a dress for my daughter, but she overestimated how big she is and all of the dresses we ended up with were too large. Luckily we still had something amazing for her to wear.

Dress was very flattering but my only complaint is that it had a smell to it.... I did spray it down with a lot of perfume which cloaked the problem. Dress was hit and I'd definitely rent from RTR again....

Wore this to a 5 star dinner in Vegas. True to size but lower half of dress is snug so if your belly is a problem area for you like it is me I recommend spanx! Looked great with the spanx to smooth things out!

The dress was really comfortable and I got tons of compliments but it was way too big!

Size worn: 16W

This dress is great. I typically wear a 16. This comes as a "women's" dress and a 14W was not available so I got a 16W and 18W. Boy was the 16 big!!! I got a belt and had to sash it up to keep it from just falling off of my hips. Other than that, it was terrific and I would definitely get it again if I could get the 14W. It hides the tummy bulge from 3 kids (!) and minimized my chest (I wear a 38H). Nice sparkle on the cuffs.
