This dress is absolutely beautiful. It was my backup dress, and I didn't end up wearing it, because my original was also beautiful, but I wanted to! It fit like a glove and was very figure flattering!

Great dress, fit like a glove, although a little too wrinkled from thigh level to bottom. I ordered the length that was suggested for my height (regular) but should have order the long, the bottom landed at my ankles. This was a black tie event, so I needed it to be floor length. I had a back up dress and wore that instead. I ordered the Elizabeth Cole earrings, and the Chamak By Priya Kakkar 2 bangle set...GORGEOUS and elegant. The Earrings weren't heavy or too big. Both added the right amount of sparkle and style to my one shoulder neckline dress.

I tried this exact dress on in Bloomingdales, the 4R and it was much longer than the dress I rented. The 4R was about 5 inches shorter than the store dress and showed my shoes (it was like it was hemmed for someone shorter). But other than that, the dress fit perfect and I got lots of compliments! If you are 5'5'' or taller, and plan on wearing any heel length, get the long length in this dress.

This dress looked amazing!! I got lots of rave reviews! I got size 2 and 4. I ended up wearing the size 2. I weigh 127 pounds. The arm hole was a little tight and itchy from the sequins but manageable. I got the long size and it fit perfect with 2 inch heels. Very nice dress.

At my height, the 8L was just above the floor in two inch heels. That sad the dress is beautiful. It's definitely a stand out. If you on the fence about this dress, go for it! It's a great choice.

Gorgeous dress. I didn't end up wearing it to the event as the back up that I ordered fit better, but I will try ordering this again. I was sent the 10L, which was just a bit too long on my 5'8" frame, even with 4" heels. I'll order the 10R next time.

Loved the dress!! I'm 5'9" weigh 150 and the 8 fit perfectly. The length was perfect too while wearing 3" heels. When the dress arrived it was very wrinkled - had to steam it from the inside out. Sequins kind of hurt under the arm but it was totally worth it when I received at least 30 compliments. Really! It's a winner!

This dress is just gorgeous. I ordered the 4 & 6. Ended up wearing the 4, as the 6 was a little loose around the bust, but I do not have a large chest. Received many compliments. the fabric is soft and glossy. i wore 3" heels and the long length fitted perfectly. Front is very flattering to the stomach. Just lovely.

I was walking across the ballroom and a woman literally stopped her friends, pointed and said WOW look at her. Awesome feeling.
I wore this to the Marine Corps Ball and let me say, the picture does NOT do it justice. I am 5'5" about 128 pounds with a bigger chest and little waist and the 2L fit PERFECTLY with about 4 inch heels (So I was 5'9" and the dress was skimming the floor, not dragging at all) The color is incredible in person, and if you get the right size it fits like a GLOVE. So amazing. All night as I was walking past people I was hearing "WOW. Look at HER dress". Amazing!!

Show Stopper
I ordered this dress for a very formal company party. It was perfect! Fits true to size, easy to wear, comfortable and beautiful. I received a ton of compliments from everyone at the party plus hotel staff and vendors. Every guy in the room noticed me and made the effort to compliment me. If you want a dress to make you stand out, this is it!

Hello, I'm thinking of this dress for a pageant and I'm 5'3 110 lbs. And usually wear a size 0. Was the 2 form fitting on you? How was the length with heels? Would you mind posting a picture since we are very similar in body type? I would really really appreciate it!! Thank you :)

Holiday Party success
I rented this for my office holiday party. I wanted to look great but didn't want to be too exposed so this dress was ideal. There were lots of lovely complements but no co-workers talking to my cleavage. The dress runs large. I am usually a size 4 but the size 2 was a much better fit. The 2R is a bit longer than I thought. I was wearing 3.5 inch heels and the hew touched the floor so I made sure that I had a hand on it when I was walking. All in all I think this was a great dress and I felt wonderful in it.

Perfect
I wore this to a Wedding in NYC- i got compliments from a so many people, even the bride and groom! I was sad to have to send it back but the whole experience was seamless. Paired this with my 'mystery' bling which were the KJL Crystal drop earrings, which i want to own too... over all, perfect! Fit - true to size, wore with 2" heels, length was just above the ground, exposing my toes.

Nice for a Beauty Pageant
Nice dress, but felt too much like something for a beauty pageant. The "R" length was great, but I'm 5'2" and was wearing 3" heels, so anyone taller may have a problem with length! Went with my back-up dress instead.

I felt like a princess, & looked like one too!
I rented this dress for a beauty pageant, and although I didn't place, many people went out of their way to tell me that I looked amazing. I was worried about the hem because I had on 4-inch heels, but it ended up working perfectly because I'm only 5'3. I felt like a princess, & it worked great for my curvy body type!

Loved how easy the rental process is and how detailed the descriptions of the garments are! Was very easy to trust the garment I was renting was going to fit exactly as it said.
This dress was my first rental from your company and it was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! It fit true to its detail, description, and size! It hugged every curve and showed off my figure perfectly. I felt radiant and absolutely flawless! Thank you so much for a great experience!

I felt like a million bucks in this dress. Now a fan of David Meister... and of course, RTR!
This dress is amazing! The moment I put it on, I KNEW - this was it. I felt like royalty - fit like a glove - as if it had been tailored to me. Head's will turn when you walk in the room in this gown. The color is a beautiful navy blue and the sequins capture the light and shimmer as you move. My husband was impressed. Absolutely beautiful. Lots of compliments all night. And the rental process from start to finish was sooo easy! I'm a forever fan ~ Thank you RTR!!

Comfortable and Lovely
I usually wear a size 6, but ordered the 6 and 8. I am 5'6 135 lb and I'd say an hourglass shape. The 6 was a perfect fit--with plenty of room so I could enjoy dinner and cocktails too! The dress was unique and flattering and definitely comfortable. I ordered the R length instead of L because I knew I would be dancing. The dress came to my ankles and that worked out perfectly--I didn't trip once! ;-) Highly recommend this dress!

Among all of the compliments I received the best one was when my boyfriend told me "That really is a gorgeous dress"
I wore this to a black tie Navy Ball and got so many compliments. It was simple yet so elegant and flattering for any size. I am thin so the waist was not as fitted as I expected it to be but it still fit very nicely throughout.

If you don't mind me asking, what is your waist size? Did it fit tight? I have similar weight and height but I'm straight waisted.

We reserved a table upfront at my husbands New Year's Eve party where he is the GM at a casino here in Arizona. It was also his Birthday and we usually stay home for New Year's but decide to go because they were featuring the "Rat Pack" impersonators.Not ong into the show this elderly gentleman seated to my left suddenly spilled his offee down my thgh. Apparently he liked my dress so much he forgot what he was doing. No harm done though, I excused myself and went to rinse it out in the rest room after I blotted it dry you couldn't even tell where it was. His wife was much more embarrassed than he was for sure!
This dress has to be without a doubt the most luxurious dress I've had the pleasure of wearing. I felt like a princess in it! The picture does not due it justice and it is a heavy dress and very well made. The only thing I would have to agree with that others have posted is that the way the wrap comes around the front it made me look like I had a little pooch and I've always prided myself with have a rock hard belly and athletic look. I'm 5ft.3" and ordered the 4L and think I should have ordered the 4R because I kept stepping on the front even with 4 inch heels on. Overall this dress gets 5 stars in my book. You can't go wrong!

Both my friend and I did the surprise jewelry extra and loved it.
I wore this dress for New Year's Eve and received a lot of compliments. It runs true to size but can accommodate a larger bust which is usually why I wear a size 4. Here I wore the 2 and it fit like a glove. The only caution I have is that depending on your torso length the knot may hit you at a funny spot. I felt like that portion could have been a little higher on me but I'm also overly critical about how things look on my body. The sequins are small so they look expensive. Good rental. My friend in the photo is wearing a Badgley Mischka from RTR that she was also very happy with.

This is a stunning dress. It was very comfortable and not at all heavy. Fantastic dress for someone who's athletic or straight & narrow. The gathering at the side defines the waist and the single shoulder showcases great collarbones. Loved it.

Stunning Dress
I wore size 4L in this dress. I'm 5'5 and 130 lbs. I have a fuller bust (D cup) and I am more of a curvy bodytype. The dress fits perfectly on my body and I received so many compliments at the company holiday party, it is very elegant and attention grabber. Spanx is a recommended. The underarm is a little tight, but it is tolerable throughout the whole night. Side note: If you are over 5'2, simply get size L instead of R. L is actually the regular size of the dress. I think RTR tailored them short for customers who are shorter in heights and they called it Regular for some reason.

When everyone turned and stared, I knew it was me in that dress that floored them :)
I looked fabulous in this gown. My husband and I begin to turn heads as soon as we walked into the venue. I felt glamorous. As far as the gown's fit goes, if I had gotten a size 4L instead of the 6L it would have hugged my body flawlessly. But it still looked gorgeous on. I am very pleased overall with my choice and I thank the creators of RTR for giving me the opportunity to rent this beautiful gown and for creating this site. Why rent a gown you would only where once?!?

I just felt stunning in this dress and the quality was amazing!
I loved wearing this dress and wore it to Army Ball this year. I wore the 2L with kitten heels because I am 5'9" and it was just floor length. Also I am very small in the chest (32B) and I didn't fill out the top quite right. It was a bit big in that area and I had to tape it on with fashion tape. But the dress is stunning and the sequins are so intricate that you know it is a well made dress.

I had a lady in the Bellagio Casion stop me to tell me how beautiful my dress was :D
I liked this dress a lot but I had 2 small issues. Issue number one, I had an aweful time zipping the dress, this wasnt because it was too tight because I had plenty of room, the zipper just kept sticking. Issue number two, I am 5 foot 7 and I ordered the dress in a long, I had to wear flats to make the dress floor legnth. If I was any taller than 5 foot 10 the dress would probably be a little short (even in flats) I am a huge fan of sequins and the color was beautiful. I would still reccoment the dresss because it was beautiful. I wore it to a Valentines Day dinner at the Bellagio in Las Vegas. This dress was super classy!

This was my "backup" dress. It fit very well. It is a very flattering dress, but it was too short for me. I decided to go with my first choice. By the way, the process of renting from RTR could not have gone smoother. I will definitely rent again!

An elegant jaw-dropper
I loathe shopping for dresses because they never fit me quite right. RTR fit guides are very helpful and take hours off of the shopping process. This dress, although a bit wrinkled upon arrival, fit as described. I have very narrow shoulders but a large bust, and it was still a little roomy up top. I had to use a safety pin and tape to keep my strapless bra from showing. But, the dress is so elegant and has a great va-va-voom factor! My husband loved it, and it was very comfortable for a formal black tie event. Would definitely use RTR again!!

Ouch!
The dress fit me (8L) except underneath my left arm. (I have broad athletic shoulders.) Could only wear dress for 5 minutes and then had to get out of it because it was digging into my armpit. I tried on the 10L and it fit too loose for my taste. It didn't flatter my figure. But it didn't dig into my skin either. Fortunately I selected a back up dress when I placed my initial order (Carlos Miele Catarina Bombshell. My review: A Night in San Diego) Highly recommend ordering a second dress as a backup. So worth it for the small cost. Pretty dress. Material is a deep blue elegant sequin material. I definitely will use RTR again.

I was tired of buying dresses that I wore once, so I decided to try out RTR. Now I got to wear a great dress and I don't have to feel guilty about it sitting in my closet, possibly never to be worn again! I was very happy with the whole process of renting and wearing the gown!
I wore this to a masquerade black tie ball and it was a huge hit! Very flattering to someone with a narrow waist, wider hips, and average bust! Got many compliments. Need to wear heals as it is floor length.

I liked the fit but it was tight under the boobs. It is a little looser at the "pooch" area which helped cover that up.

I ended up selecting another dress as this one seemed shapeless and baggy on me.
