Sleek & Sophisticated!

Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Beautiful dress! This dress has a very sophisticated shape, is very fitted throughout but has a lot of stretch making it very comfortable and easy to wear. I wore it with the Nubra seamless adhesive bra which is my go-to bra for backless dresses. I'm 5'8" and L length was perfect. Highly recommend this dress!

RTR Saved The Day

Size worn: 6L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The dress I originally ordered was damaged so RTR sent this one to me instead! I am so glad they did! This dress is stunning and so elegant. The color is so rich and looks great with gold jewelry. I chose to wear the 6 because I felt more comfortable. This dress is quite form fitting so if you don't quite like that fit I suggest sizing up. The fabric is super stretchy and I felt comfortable wearing it all night. Thanks again RTR, another fabulous rental and amazing customer service!

This dress was Amazing! It fit snug and hit all your curves. I wore a light spandex under garment and I taped my bra to me and the dress. This dress is very elegant, perfect for a black tie New Years Eve wedding.

My original dress didn't fit so RTR overnighted this dress to me in time for my event. It was a great dress--very comfortable and glamorous. I received many compliments and couldn't be happier.

Gorgeous dress! Tons of compliments at Carnegie Hall!

Size worn: 8L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Although the deep burgundy color doesn't show up well in photos (appears black), in person the color and pattern are very clear. I wore this to the opera and it attracted a lot of attention, but was still very classy and sophisticatedly simple. It was form fitting but not tight and was very comfortable to sit and move in. Be careful with bracelets because they could snag the dress!

Ended up not wearing, but liked it.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
The size 6R fit best. It requires NuBra, as described. I only didn't wear it because the other dress I'd ordered was better. The little flaps or cut neckline was flopped over on one side a bit. May have been something I could have ironed out but didn't have that option. The fabric is wonderful as is the color. Having trouble entering the overall rating but I'd give it 3 1/2 stars. Would recommend wearing Spanx unless you have a completely flat tummy. ( which I don't.)

The venue, the dress, the company.

Size worn: 12L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
It was very comfortable and pretty stretchy. I wore two sizes up because I needed it to be long enough with 4-1/2 inch heels on. It was still a little short in the front but longer in the back (which is why I only gave 4 instead of 5 stars). The neck flap drooped a little bit but it wasn't that big of a deal. I got a lot of compliments on how elegant it was and the color and obviously the back was gorgeous! I highly recommend this dress. Just keep in mind that if you're tall you might want to go up a few sizes.

I felt great in this dress! I could have easily worn it for another 8 hrs, it was really that comfy!

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress is actually a very simple but elegant dress and the material makes it really comfortable to wear for hours. I would strongly suggest some bold accessories if the event is a formal one simply because the dress is really simple.

Understated and Sleek Dress

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I never wear tight, body con dresses, but I took a chance with this one for a formal black tie event, and I'm glad I did! I was looking for a dress that was understated (didn't want to draw attention), but still had a little spice to it, and so this one fit the bill. The material on the hanger is heavy, but once on, I didn't notice the weight of the fabric. This means that, although the dress hugs every part of your body, the material is think and durable, and felt comfortable while walking around the room, while eating, and while dancing. The swirls add a little bit of texture to an otherwise simple dress. I wore the 4R, and at 5'2 I wore about 2 inch heels and you could see the beginning of my toes. I think that a higher heel would have made the dress too short. The 6R was long enough then, but you can tell the difference when you wear the dress that the 6R was a little more lose in the straps and in the back. The 4R looked really sleek on me and I could still eat a lot (this is important to me). I didn't have any problems with the back being low, but I had to make sure that I held the dress when getting into/out of the car and when walking up/down stairs as not to step on the fabric. Really enjoyed the dress and how it made me feel!

Completely elegant and beautiful!

Size worn: 2L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was completely unreal! I got endless compliments from everyone at the wedding. It's super elegant, beautiful, and simple. The back is absolutely stunning as well! I will say the front flaps near the neck were definitely flapped down upon arrival, however it was barely noticeable. Also, the dress goes higher on the neck than the picture... please check out my photos! I wore about 4-5 inch shoes and it was perfect. The back IS longer than the front and i stepped on it only a couple times. I recommend this dress 100%! I felt like a princess!!! :)

I felt so glamorous and sexy next to my husband when I accepted my spouse of the year award

This dress was so comfortable, got tons of complements. The only thing that bothered me was the collar didn't stand up like in the online picture but it looked fine in my pictures. This is my first time using RTR loved it, I am already selecting my holiday dress and NYE dress.

First formal rental from RTR and it was a hit!

Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This was a very classy dress! The high neck and the low back made this dress sexy but still sophisticated and modest. I wore a nubra (my first time wearing one) which worked fine. Probably could have gone without a bra, but I don't feel comfortable personally without one. I wore the long dress, with 3 1/2 inch heels and the back drug slightly on the ground. Be advised this dress has a slight high low, so the front is shorter than the back! I wore Spanx just to keep everything looking tight, but probably wasn't necessary.

I wore this dress to a formal wedding reception honoring the 50th wedding anniversary & vow renewal.

Size worn: 2L
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress fit very well! It was form fitting and had a lot of stretch. I am usually a size 4 but I was able to wear the 2L and I could have even worn the 0L. The collar did flap down a little (pictured) and I kept stepping on the train but it wasn't that bad. The dress is shorter in the front and I wore 3in heels with it and it looked great! I have a long torso so the back was not that low for me (pictured) I did not wear a bra with this dress, it is a thick material and wasnt necessary. Overall this dress was a hit and I got tons of compliment on how classy it was!

This dress was awesome. Comfy, flattering, the color is gorgeous.

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress seemed to be a quarter of a size (is that a thing?) big on me, especially in the chest (I'm 32b and wore a size 2). No big deal. The little V on the neck line was a little floppy, but given that this dress is a year or two old, totally understandable. I fashion-taped it to my collarbone & it was smooth sailing. I wore this for the 2014 USMC Ball. This is my third RTR rental and I still love this place. The color and texture on this dress are what make it shine, but the low back helps. I paired it with some plain heels I had ( you can't seem my feet anyhow), and some simple, elegant rose gold accessories.

Unique Dress and Super Comfortable

Size worn: 10L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This dress was picked out with the help of an RTR stylist after my original dress became unavailable. initially they sent me two dresses but not in long. Had to contact Customer Service who promptly hooked me up with a wonderful stylist. Great David Meister gown. The fabric is unique, it has a texture. Super comfortable and the back of this dress is the highlight!! Loved the color...unique and different from all the other LBDs in the room. Love RTR❤️

Didn't wear this dress

Size worn: 8R

I wanted to wear this dress for pictures my husband and I were taking in the fall. The dress runs pretty large. The reason I didn't wear it is because the neckline drooped quite a bit. I also felt that it didn't do much for my figure.

Elegant dress

Size worn: 10L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Overall dress fit very well--could have been a little longer for my taste but friends said it fit perfectly, 8 L fit overall better but wore 10 L for length, front flaps didn't stand up but was hardly noticeable, Front was a little to understated for my taste but I can see why--back of dress is stunning and makes up for it, wore 1.5 inch heels although I prefer at least 3 inch heels, wore nubra and spanks--neither were visible

A sophisticated dress in a unique color.

Size worn: 8L

Beautiful, elegant dress. Very true to size. A deep wine, burgundy color with attractive pattern. Enough give to fit but not too tight. I would definitely recommend this if you were looking for an elegant, classy evening dress.

AMAZING RENTAL!

Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wore this dress to a formal event. The texture of the dress wasn't too much. The drop on the back made this very simple dress classy. I am 5'1 and wore two inch heels with this dress. Got so many compliments! The dress isn't too heavy and I wore a Nubra with it. I was afraid that the dress wasn't formal enough but it definitely proved me wrong. It fit perfectly!

So many compliments on my dress!

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress fit very well, it was just long enough that I could wear 3in wedges with it. I got many compliments on the dress, it was classy yet sexy so appropriate for a church wedding. I felt beautiful in it and loved the color and texture. The only thing was that the points at the neckline right below my chin didn't stay up, they flopped over no matter what I did to them. That was a bit annoying but nothing huge.
