It looked like this dress was made for me!
Size worn: 8L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
In love with this dress. Originally ordered a different style which ended up being too short on me. I called RTR freaking out, and they calmed me down by sending me this the next day. It couldn't have worked out better. Simple and elegant which allows you to add some bling without overdoing it. The 6L was too short on me so went with the 8L - still actually wasn't as long as I had hoped- but with flats it was fine. Allows for a strapless bra which is perfect, really flattering overall. Rent it, you'll feel amazing in it.

Very pretty dress
Size worn: 14R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
After my first dress didn't fit the way I had hoped, RTR was kind enough to send me two new dresses overnight. I was a bit nervous as I have always worn empire waisted dresses, but the style and fit of this dress is my absolute go-to from now on! It was the perfect amount of form-fitting and incredibly flattering. I am between a 12 and a 14 right now, but definitely felt like an 8 or a 10. If you have an hourglass figure, this dress is perfect. The length was a little bit of an issue. The dress was way to short to wear anything over a 1" heel, and I'm only 5'3". And even with a tiny heel it was still a tad short. It does look black in photos, but it is a very pretty navy blue in person. Also a little large in the bust. I felt just a little more exposed than I wanted to be. Overall a very nice dress and great experience.

It made me fit for a gala event with royalties. Fabric felt a bit cheap at first but snug really nice around the body. Could have worked well for a Gatsby event too..

Sapphire and Pearls
Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Simple and elegant, perfect for the black tie wedding I was attending. The sapphire color and lace is lovely. Tons of compliments. The dress was a little larger in the bust than I would have liked but still fit beautifully. The ruching in the bodice helped create dimension without but I'd imagine this wouldn't be as flattering on someone with larger bust. I ordered a 4L and it seemed a little shorter than it should be, but I also wore 4.5" heels. I would definitely consider more dresses by this designer.

Loved this dress!
Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This was a great dress but the top seemed to have been a little stretched out so it didn't fit quite right. I was really unsure if I should get the long or not and I very happy I did! Also the shaping for the top had the hard pieces in it that were sticking me through the night so I was happy to finally get out of it at the end of the night. It seems like the dress is starting to show signs of aging otherwise I would have rated it higher. It fit nicely throughout the whole dress though!

I felt elegant and classy. Thanks RTR!
Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress fit beautifully and as I had hoped. I'm a solid 6 (34/ 27/ 38), but have a rib cage that's a small 6 or a big 4. From reading reviews that mentioned the dress feeling loose up top, I ordered a 4L and never had a problem with the top sliding down. It was the snug, but not to tight, perfect fit. I'm 5'8" and wore 3 inch heels. My toes peeped out, but not so much that the dress looked too short. The dress is not black at all, and the deep midnight blue shows more in person. I feel this photo shows the true color of the dress better than the model.

I thought this was a beautiful gown. I used it for a military ball.
Size worn: 2L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The gown fit nicely except for the bust - it was a little big. The length was a little shorter than I expected because I ordered a long, but it was not noticeable and looked fine with small heels. The dress doesn't have a lot of give, but it is very comfortable. I used double-sided tape to keep the top attached to my strapless bra, and also to keep the garment hanger string things tucked in - they kept popping out. This was a great choice for a military ball - conservative, classy, and beautiful. I appreciated the fact that it is a formal gown, but not a prom gown - I'm too old to pull a prom gown off. I recieved the gowns (I ordered the 2L and 4L, not sure of which size would fit best) on Thursday afternoon for a Saturday event. I had enough time to make sure my shoes and jewelry matched, and to try the whole ensemble on before the ball. When I went to return the dresses in the pre-paid package, I ran into a dilemna. The blue postage boxes that rent the runway says to drop the package in states specifically that you should not put anything over 13 ounces in it. The package was pre-paid up to 2 lbs. I had no idea how much the dresses weighed, so I brought it to the post office. I don't know if it would have been fine if I dropped it in or not - I just didn't want to take the chance.

Wore this for a black tie wedding… a gorgeous dress!
Size worn: 8L
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
The 6L fit well, but was a little too short, so I went with the 8L instead. The 8L was a bit fuller in the chest, so I had my mom, a seamstress, bring it in for me a bit, just for the night. Definitely needed a strapless bra with padding. Overall, very comfortable and not too tight. The lace overlay was really pretty and more of a dark blue/navy… not black. Would recommend this dress!!

I LOVED THIS DRESS!! It was originally my backup to another shorter, tighter, purple dress that was Herve Leger but when I put this on I knew it was the one. It fit the bust perfectly, the dress was in impeccable shape, wasn't too long or short (I did have 5 inch heels on though) and it complimented my body so well. I honestly would buy it if it wasn't like 4,000$ but I def want to rent it again!

Invited to black-tie NYE wedding on December 20th. Crunch time! This dress = problem solved.
Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I've always said "less is more" and believe that a dress you can just throw on is the best. This was exactly that dress. No undergarments (literally, none) required. It was tight enough in the chest to hold me up, but not too tight to create that dreadfully unwanted armpit pinching. The length was perfect with ~3 inch heels (which is about as high as I ever go!) and it was easy to move around the dance floor. The model photo makes the lace and the solid layer look quite separate, but when you have it on the whole thing appears to be more one layer (which I liked). The lace will separate as you move around, but as you can see from my uploaded photo, at a distance the whole thing seems more solid. I did receive many compliments throughout the evening, which is always what a girl is looking for. This dress can really work for a variety of occasions (you can dress UP, as I did, and totally can dress down for something a little less formal as well). Highly recommended!

Comfortable, Elegant, Easy, and Perfect for Dancing!
Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wore a 2R and thought the dress was a little big. I would have gotten a 0R if it had been available but regardless I did not have any problems with it falling down while dancing. It was a very good length (I wore 3 inch heels and it was just touching the ground). I was disappointed with the color because it looks very gray and elegant in the picture. Unfortunately it is more of a teal slip with a dark navy lace over it. I really liked the dress and would definitely recommend it but please look at the close up I took of the fabric!

The dress was sort of stretchy, which allowed me to wear the 10L and be able to hold the girls up. Strap-less bra is a must, and the length was perfect with heels!

This was my second choice dress. I didn't end up wearing it. The fit was fine, but the dress itself was just ok. It didn't have the wow factor I was looking for. Also the top was really stretched out

What you dream of when you rent a dress
Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Incredibly flattering on my 5'4", 130, 36C frame. Slimming and elegant. I think anyone could wear this. I did find the top would shift occasionally, but it may have been do to the strapless bra underneath. Loved it even more in pictures in the next day - the true test!

I wore this dress to a ball, and am glad I wore this black tie worthy dress there
Size worn: 2L
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
So, I found the dress to be a bit big (especially on top). There was also some lace ruching at the side that is not apparent in the picture (it wasn't a huge deal, but it did make the lace lay differently at the midsection). Additionally, the lace does not have a soft texture. However, the silky fabric underneath is quite comfortable. That said, the dress was very pretty and I even got compliments from strangers while wearing it. It's certainly appropriate for a black tie event. I'd add a picture but unfortunately don't have one that really shows off the gown properly- sorry!

It was a beautiful dress and the sweetheart top was flattering!
Size worn: 6L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
It is too short, I could not wear it. The 6L just touched the ground with no heels and I am 5'6. Also, if you have larger thighs or hips, this dress bunches a little and may make you look bigger than you are around the crotchal region!

The dress fit but was too short.
Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
Im usually a 2 in dresses but the 4 fit better. The top bulged out on the sides so I had to use a lot of dress tape. The dress was also too short so you could see my shoes. I would not order this dress again.

Bigger size too big; dress is very pretty but NOT black.
Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I had ordered the 2R and 4R as back-up, but a few days before the event I got a call from RTR telling me that because of a blizzard a few days earlier shipping returns had been delayed and the 2R wasn't available! It kind of put me in a panic but it ended up working out (see Nicole Miller "living a dream"). I still got this dress in the 4R to see if it fit, but as I expected it did not. The dress is very pretty and I'm sure I would have loved the smaller size. Only thing is that the dress isn't black like I thought it would be. The lining is a dark teal and the lace a very dark navy.

This was my backup dress. It looked great, but there was a noticeable snag in the lace overlay that swayed me in favor of another dress. Also, not the most comfortable, but I would've worn it if my first choice hadn't worked out.

Runs Small and Not Flattering
Size worn: 14R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I received this dress as a free backup that a stylist picked out since one of the sizes in the dress I ordered was not available. The dress is straight and since the outer layer is lace, there is no stretch. I usually wear between a 12 and 14, but the 14 in this dress was too tight. Would not suggest for someone with curves, but could be nice on a slimmer figure. The color is a deep navy blue.
