Elegance, shimmer, gold. Beautiful.

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
It is beautiful beautiful beautiful. I absolutely loved wearing this and if I had the money to buy it from David Meister, I absolutely would. While this dress is simple, it stands out because of its elegance and shimmer. It is a taupe-gold, with a silver overlay woven into the lace. It fit me perfectly, and true to size. Take note, though, that it is shorter than most dresses are... It was fine on me since I am 5'3, but if you're any taller than that, go for the longer length for sure! Seriously, rent this dress! It's noticeable without being flashy, and such a step above typical prom/formal dresses. Thank you RTR <3

Size worn: 8L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I loved this dress -- it was so comfortable while fitting and flattering my figure so perfectly that I didn't want to take it off! The 8L was definitely TOO long for me at 5'7"; even wearing really high heels I still had to hold the skirt any time I walked. Other than that, an absolutely fabulous gown that got lots of compliments and made me feel like a million bucks. I highly recommend it!

Sizing Error?

Size worn: 6L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was sent as a replacement when my original order could not be fulfilled at the last minute. All my order info indicates that I received the 6L but the tag said only 6 and the dress was far too short for a woman my height (5'10"). Since it fell an inch or two shy of the ground when I was in my bare feet and since I've read the other reviews in which a few women have said it ran longer than they expected, I suspect that I was actually sent a 6R, which is really too bad because it is otherwise even more beautiful than in the model photos--"younger" actually than it seems as pictured and with a nice shimmer to it.

It was a little long but with very high heels, it skimmed the ground. If I ordered again, I would have gotten the 2R instead of the Long.

Loved it and received compliments all night!

Size worn: 10L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this dress for a black tie wedding and loved it. It definitely ran small - I wore the larger size - but it was SUPER comfortable and something different than what I normally wear. The only drawback was that sometimes my heel would get caught in the bottom of the dress while I was dancing. I wore Spanx because I like to smooth my middle section but you could get away without them. I wore the 10L and the length was perfect with three inch heels. The material is light and I felt like I was dressed up perfectly for the event. I'm really glad I went a bit out of the box and went for it - loved it!

I usually wear a 4, so I got both a 2 and a 4 and the 2 fit perfectly; it was even a long without heels. So I'd size down for sure! I loved this dress, and I had another great RTR experience!

Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
It's difficult to dislike such a comfortable dress but between the time i've worn a gown and when i received a dress I lost some weight so it was a little loose on me, if you're wearing heels this dress in an L is perfect. Another issue i had was how match the dress was to my complexion. Unfortunately this dress shows up in the gold color category when in fact the tensile is silver which wouldn't match my accessories. I'm adding an extra star because of the WONDERFUL customer service and speed of response. The customer service reps are polite, helpful and knowledgable about sizing as well as all the gowns. I'm waiting on the delivery on my replacement gown and I will post more about that once they arrive. My first experience...so far so good! Fingers crossed my dress replacement is here tomorrow morning.

I wore this dress to prom and was very pleased with it! I would definitely say size down, my only regret about the dress was that I wish it was a little more fitted, since the cut is conservative. It was the perfect height (I'm 5'7, wore 3.5 inch heels).

Pretty dress but very conservative and boring. Would be good for a religious function but otherwise it's very blah. The shape was nice and the lace was pretty. I am 5'7 130 pounds and the 4l was too big, the 2 would have fit well. The length was fine though. I didn't wear it to the black tie wedding, went with something a bit more young and fun.

Daisy Buchanan had nothing on me!

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Fit: It was a beautiful fit! Easy to move in, but still skimmed my curves in a flattering way. Length: I'm 5'1.5", and I wore 3.75 inch heels, and the dress was still a bit too long. Next time, I'd go for 4 or 4.25 inch heels. But honestly, it was nothing that I couldn't handle. Color: This dress is NOT like it looks in the picture. It's more like a beige, semi-bronze color with silvery details, but either way, the color is gorgeous. Comfort Level: So easy to move and dance in. The material is lightweight. My Overall RTR Experience: This was my first time renting from RTR, and needless to say, I was nervous. But my dress actually arrived earlier than the target date and the stylist / customer service is very efficient and very friendly! Couldn't have asked for a better experience! I'm in love with RTR! Misc: I received compliments all night! My prom's theme was "Party at Gatsby's" and everyone kept saying how well my dress translated the 1920s into a more modern era. I absolutely loved it! Can't wait to rent again!

I have never been so comfortable at a formal event!. I felt very elegant and was complimented~Do it!

Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The size 8 is a true 8. I am 5ft 6 and chose the 8R so that I could wear flats. The option to order two sizes for the price of one is amazing! Make sure by adding the extra size or length....it's free! The dress packed easily and did not wrinkle! I was very happy with my choice and would recommend it~

Black-Tie Elegance

Size worn: 8L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this because I wanted something elegant for a black-tie wedding, but didn't want to be too sexy. Before the wedding I was very worried that it would look too matronly for my age. When I wore it, it was absolutely stunning. I received so many compliments. This is beyond comfortable. It includes very generous cups for the bust, sewn in, so no bra is necessary. I am 5'8" and wore this with 3-inch heels as recommended. I also ordered a size-up based on reviews and it was perfect.

The Lace Material Was Beautiful and Flawless!

Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I rented this dress for prom! As a first-time RTR user, I was afraid of something going wrong! Luckily, nothing did! I primarily ordered the size 6R and 4R but eventually switched the sizes while shopping for my prom shoes in fear of my dress being to short for my heels. Great choice! This dress runs small (as in height) so its better to go with the longer length when it comes to sizes 6 and 4. That night, I wore 4.25 inch strappy heels (two straps at the ankle and two over the toes). I also accessorized with a boxy rectangular clutch. My dress also came two days in advance! When I tried it on, I realized that the 6L fit much better than the 4L but the latter fit better with my dress and was about 1/2 inch longer. IT mattered in the end because having more length gave the dress and the overall look so much more elegance. Regardless, I had a wonderful night! I received a number of compliments about my dress and my whole outfit in general. It was splendid night! Couldn't have done it without this dress (and RTR, of course)!

I rented this dress twice this summer, for two separate black tie weddings. It fit great, was totally comfortable (other than the Spanx I wore under it) and I felt great in it! It was form-fitting and body-con and shimmery without being at all cheesy. A total winner. I felt like a million bucks.

I went to an Arabic wedding where your chest/back/legs etc need to be covered. Usually I buy a dress and then have it tailored to cover it all up but this dress was perfect. Didn't need to do anything. It was a little loose on my waist but I usually have that problem since my chest and butt are large and my waist is small. It was comfortable, elegant yet simple. I would definitely rent again.

I rented this dress for a benefit, but it was all wrong. The color isn't nearly as gold as the picture leads you to believe. The waist also has NO give, and it's very scratchy. The length of the dress is good, but I ended up returning the dress and wearing something I had in my closet.

I wore this gown for a 1945 Wartime themed Gala and it was perfect! Not only was the gown glamorous, it was comfortable and allowed me to swing dance the night away! I'm 5'9", wore the Long length and still had to wear flats with the dress to achieve the look of the model (dress hitting floor). Highly recommend this dress for a classic look!

A beautiful, comfortable, and modest choice!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I was so pleased with this dress. It was very forgiving, very comfortable, and very easy to wear. I wore my usual size and wore it with a regular nude bra, which was not at all apparent through the dress. I'm 5'6" and I wore 3" heels and it was a little on the shorter side--a reasonable length, but not touching the floor as in the model photo. The stretchiness of the fabric really made it easy to stay comfortable the whole evening and I appreciated that the dress was glamorous enough to let me feel polished and beautiful next to my husband in his tuxedo at a black tie wedding, but it is appropriately conservative for me as a 34-year-old mother of twins.

I felt really comfortable wearing this dress all night. Since it was quite cold in the mountains for an outdoor wedding, the sleeves and length made it much warmer. The top part of this dress is translucent, so it makes it much prettier in person. I normally wear a 2, but the 0 worked and fit snug and was flattering.

I got so many compliments on this dress. I wore it to a black tie wedding where I wanted to be conservative but still wanted to stand out. It definitely has a little more metallic factor from the lace overlay than the image lets on. The fit was great, the only thing I'd be careful of is length. I am 5'10" and the 8L was not long enough to wear anything but flats.

The lining in the dress I received was longer than the fabric of the dress itself, by about two inches. I'm not sure if it's meant to be this way or if the dress has been damaged by repeated cleanings but it looked terrible. This was a shame as the rest of the dress is gorgeous.

Lovely backup dress.

Size worn: 10L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This was a backup dress when my first dress didn't fit. It wais very comfy just barely touched the floor in 2 1/2" heels. The color was a little darker in person, but the shiny silver lace was beautiful. I didn't end up wearing this dress because I wasn't fond of the dropped waist, but I liked the ruching and simplicity of the dress.

This dress was so comfortable! I was 15 weeks pregnant when I ordered the dress and I was going to be 17 weeks while wearing it. I am usually a 4L but I needed to size up for the tummy area. Had I not been pregnant and just got my normal size it would have been perfect too. I am also LDS and this was a modest dress that was still classy and fashionable. I was also able to wear a shade that looked as it was part of the actual dress.

This dress fit perfectly. I had ordered a size four and six, the six just to be safe. The neckline was perfect, coming just to my collarbone. The beading on the dress was just as beautiful in person as it was online. The dress wasn't tight at all, it was comfortable for me to dance in at prom all night! The only slightly bad things was that it was a little long for me being 5'3", I had to hold it up while I was dancing, so I wish there was a "short" option. Overall I am beyond happy with this dress!

The dress fit great BUT the hem was so raggedy

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress is gorgeous, my husband loved it. But I didn't wear it because the hem was so raggedy and shorter than I had hoped. At barely under 6 foot the hem was a good few inches off the floor barefoot (please excuse my barefoot photo) and sadly the bottom layer was noticeably longer than the delicate top layer. Other than the length the dress fits exceedingly well and would be very comfortable to wear for an event.
