Looking like the prettiest gem in the room
I ended up wearing the 6L because the 4L was really dull and dirty. The fit is extremely comfortable and the type of dress that EVERY WOMAN LOOKS GORGEOUS IN! It runs large so def order a backup size down. I wore it to my sororities formal and was constantly praised for how beautiful I looked. The 6L was definitely long. I'm 5'9 and wore 5 inch heels and it still touched the ground. If you want a dress that different from the rest, definitely rent this one. Another satisfied customer!

This dress was perfect. Really showed off my curves which I loved and made me look skinny!
The dress was perfect!! I was my back-up dress but when I tried it on it really showed off my body in the right places. I went a size up because I didn't want it to be skin tight and it for perfectly! I would recommend this dress to people who might have a tummy because it hides it perfectly! I am a 36DD with a small waist so it's always hard to find dresses that fit right. Wish I could have kept this dress!

Beautiful!
This is a beautiful, shimmering, curve-hugging gown. And comfortable! I ended up wearing a different dress because it was a bit too fancy for the event, but I would definitely rent this again.

Had no time to shop and a friend recommended RTR. I'm glad I did! Easy to order & great selection.
The regular length was too short with heels and the long was way too long. Otherwise the fit was great. Perfect dress for a charity event!!

Beautiful dress! Color is more of a Champagne rather than Silver or Gold. All I added was a pair of clear stone & silver double hoop earrings and a strappy platino color sandal. I normally wear a size 8 in dresses but ordered a 6R and an 8R due to prior reviews. Ended up wearing the 6R but wish I had the 6L. I'm 5'6" and even with no shoes the regular length dress barely touched the floor in front. The 8R was even shorter for some reason. Wish RTR had listed the length of the R and the L. Would have been more helpful than just giving the model's height. (Is she wearing a regular or a long? They don't say.) Suggest sizing down and ordering the longer length unless you are petite or are planning to wear flats. Overall very pleased with my first RTR rental.

So comfortable!
Read the other reviews for this dress. They were really helpful to me and you can get an accurate idea about this dress from what they say. The only reason I put 4 stars instead of 5 is because of an almost-broken zipper. With lots of willpower we finally got it to work, but it keeps getting stuck. I got a size 6L with 4L as my backup, and found that the 4L fit much better and the length was significantly shorter (fortunately) than the 6L. The dress length was perfect with 4" heels, and I was able to dance in it, even though it touched the ground slightly in the back. I thought the color would make my pale skin appear washed-out, but it looked great! Creamy ivory-colored shoes go well with this dress.

I loved wearing this dress! It was comfortable and beautiful. Very forgiving with the ruching and as the fabric has some stretch. I got many, many compliments. I followed the designer's sizing chart and it was right on, even though most of my regular clothes are a larger size. The length was perfect for me with 2 1/2 inch heels.

The process for renting and returning was SO EASY!!
This dress is stunning and so comfortable! I wore to a black tie fundraiser and felt like the belle of the ball! The fabric really breathes and the regular length was perfect with 4" heels on my 5'2" frame. The color is more gold than what the picture indicates. I typically wear a 6 and the way the size 4 fit was much more flattering.

This dress is very flattering on anyone who wants to conceal a SLIGHT food/drink baby in the tummy area. It's not going to work a miracle, but it's just enough. I am a typical pear-shape (size 4 in the bust, 6 in the waist and 8/10 in the hip). I rented the 8 and the 10 and the 8 fit perfect, with some room to breathe, as well. I didn't even bother trying the 10. The length was perfect with a standard 2.5-3" heel, no dragging. My fear was that the 8 would be too big in the bust, but it was fine with a little push up in my strapless bra (I wore victorias secret very sexy strapless). Very sleek and elegant. The color was a little drab on my skin... this would be beautiful on a much tanner or african american woman. It's a perfect champagne color with subtle gold flecks. Also, it's VERY stretchy/forgiving (but not cligy, so that's good). Last but not least, if you want a COMFY dress... this is it. I literally felt like I was wearing a cozy nightgown in it.

Beautiful dress. I had to fit the dress to my upper half and the material draped perfectly to show off my lower half. Many lovely compliments. This dress is comfortable and amazing!

Elegant, contemporary, comfy!
Perfect in every way. Fit beautifully - perhaps a tad roomy in the waistline. Very comfortable - although a wee bit long - just a smidge (maybe half an inch) shorter would be ideal, but really loved this dress. I wore 3+ inch heels. Got compliments all night. Wore it to a professional black tie event - wanted to be appropriately conservative without losing femininity. This was simply perfect in every way.

nice color, odd fit
Dress was a beautiful color, but the material felt cheap. I wasn't able to rent the longer version, and due to the reviews stating that this dress ran large, I assumed (wrongly!) that I wouldn't need to. The 4 fit great, but was too short. I ended up going with the 6R for length, but it was large in the chest and waist area.

Felt very elegant and vintage in this dress, I couldn't be happier with the dress or RTR, they never disappoint!
The dress was perfect for a black tie charity event. Very comfortable and easy to wear. I wore a 5 inch heel and the length hit mid-foot (just right).

...Married the love of my life in this sparkler and felt like a Queen!
I wore this dress for my outdoor Summer wedding. It was beautiful. Though it arrived with a small opening along the seam in the back, I wore it--as it was a "time crunch". The length of the dress was way too long! It dragged. Nonetheless, I felt regal in it. And it glistened in the bright sunlight! Overall: Runs large, too long, tear at the back seam, forgiving, sparkly, lightweight material, easy to wear.

gorgeous gown but didn't end up wearing it as the size ran too large on me.
This is a beautiful gown, but runs large. I didn't end up wearing this dress because it was a bit long on me and I didn't have any fashion tape on hand to do a quick hem.

Beautiful dress, looked great for the occasion (Charity Gala)!
Loved the dress, I felt that it ran a little big. I rented a 2R and a 4R and I might have been better off with a 0R instead of the 4R. The length was perfect so that I only had to wear about 2 inch heels (I'm 5'5"). Overall, I loved the dress, it's more glittery in person.

Beautiful cut and color but WAY TOO LONG (even in Regular)
Beautiful dress but WAY TOO LONG. The regular size (which I've worn in other dresses by this designer) was easily 5-6 inches too long. I am 5'5'' and could not wear even my highest heels to save this dress. Very disappointed because I love the fit and color otherwise! No petite available in this dress either.

I looked chic and beautiful!
the dress does run a size large. i normally wear a 4 but i'm glad i ordered a 2 because it fit much better. also the regular was good for my height with a 2 inch heel. it was chic, form fitted and beautiful. in the picture it looks like a nude but it's actually gold with a silver overlay. so it looks more silver than anything.

Great backup!
I ordered this as a backup to the dream gown I really wanted, because RTR only had one size available (of the dream gown.) This was stunning on, and I looked like a million bucks in it, but I was thrilled to find that the favorite gown fit perfectly. I gave the keynote address at a gala in the Washington DC area, and was so grateful to know about RTR! I'll definitely keep coming back for more!

I felt like the belle of the ball and all eyes were on me!
This dress was absolutely amazing. I was hesitant based on other reviews. But here we go. 1) As you can see, I'm only 5'2. I wore 2 inch heels. LADIES just buy some removable fabric tape and tada! Length is gone. I just made the dress skim the floor. 2) I usually wear a 10, I went with size 8. Material is super stretchy and very forgiving. I did also wear some spanx's just to make it SUPER smooth. Can I also say very comfortable! 3) This dress is a shimmery gold, And has a super cute beading detail on the shoulder. 4) This dress could be rented for pretty much anything! I plan on renting from this designer again! Thanks RTR for everything you do! I honestly can say this will always be a great memory for me!

honestly it's not beautiful in person like it was online.
The chest area is very baggy, the material seems cheap (very thin) I'm 5'5, I usually get the longer sizes in dresses but after reading reviews I decided to get a 2R, terrible mistake it's to short in the front, so heels are totally out of the question. I felt like a child playing dress up in my mothers clothes because of the way it fit. Very dissapointing.

Looking like a Bond-girl at a 007-themed party!
I ordered both a 6 and an 8, and I ended up wearing the 6. It fit comfortably, which was surprising since I normally have to go up a size in formals due to my broad shoulders. The normal length was just about right with 5" heels, though the back caught on my heels a couple times. The gathering at the side was very flattering and allowed for multiple trips to the hors d'oeuvres table ;). Finding shoes and earrings to match was easy--I just added more bling with the accessories! The second picture shows me with the other girls in the group. We all used RTR so we could look absolutely fabulous for the party. This was my first RTR experience, and I will definitely do it again when I get the chance!

SOOOOOOOO comfortable and form flattering!!!
I got complements in this dress ALL NIGHT LONG. It's stretchy which is why I said runs large depending on the look you want if you want it too hug your curves more than go with the smaller size. I rented a 4R and 6R and wore the 4R, but could have gotten away with wearing a 2R. I am short and wore 3 inch heels so it was still a tad bit too long, but nothing dramatic. I love this dress and would DEFINITELY rent it again.

Beautiful dress, loved the color!
I loved the look of this dress and was slightly worried about the one shoulder due to not really wearing a supportive bra. I rented both a 6R and 8R. I read a lot of reviews and most of them said it was too long on them. However, the 6R fit like a glove but was too short to wear anything but flats with, so I ended up having to wear the larger one because it was longer. I am 5'5 and was wearing 3-4' heels and should have just gone with the 6 Long instead! But it is a beautiful dress, just a little bit of a pain towards the end of the night I kept have to pull it up around the bust area because it kept moving to the side.

Got lots of compliments on this dress! It was perfect for our Golden Age of Hollywood Gala!
The dress was extremely comfortable and forgiving. Must wear a smoothing spanx! I normally have to order 1 or 2 sizes up in formal wear, but with this dress was able to wear my normal size! The rental experience was great. Will be back again!

Great dress!
This was my first RTR dress for a Mardi Gras ball and all I can say is 'WOW!'. This dress fit me like a glove and the ruching at the side provided perfect tummy camouflage (a pair of spanx helped the cause too). As others have noted, this dress runs a little big so go one size down. I would defnitely rent this dress again.

Great first time with RTR!
Rented this dress for a special new years eve date with my boyfriend. Although the party we went to turned out to be more club like than I had anticipated it being, I still felt beautiful in this dress. I ordered a 6 with the 4 being the back up size, just in case it ran big. And sure enough, the 6 was just a little too big up top. So glad I got the size down and not up. The dress was quite long on me, even with 4 in heels I needed to tape up the hem a little. But I am rather short, so it was expected. RTR made the process easy. My dress arrived a day before and due to the holiday, gave me an extra day to return it. They even threw in a couple of NYE hats, one of which I ended up giving to my sis. Gr eat experience, will definitely rent again!

Someone told me I looked like the Prom Queen!
Wore this to an adult prom for charity and it was a great dress. It was SOOOO comfortable, very light and beautiful. It definitely looks different colors in different lights. Sometimes it looked gold, sometimes it had a champagne color. I'm pretty dark skinned and my fiancee kept saying what a beautiful color it was on me.I'm 5'5 and I wore 2.5 inch heels. The regular length was pretty good the dress fell just to my shoes. I'm the kind of girl that likes a LONG dress, so if I ordered this dress again, I would get the long just so it would cover my shoes. I like that look. I'm usually in between a 6 and an 8 at the time and I ended up going with the 6 and it was pretty comfy. I would say down for your second size. The dress has really nice stretch and shows off all the right curves! Love this dress and LOVE RTR!

Perfect dress for a black tie event!
I wore this dress for a military ball and it was perfect! It was so comfortable and I danced in it all night. I ordered it in a regular length and it fell to about an inch off of the floor while wearing flats. I was disappointed that I had to send it back as this is a gown that I would be willing to wear to every black tie event!

I felt like a Princess!
Thanks to all the helpful reviews, I was able to order the perfect dress. It was so beautiful on and my husband said he thought I looked better in this than I did on our wedding day! I wanted something flattering as I just had a baby, and this was the perfect fit! The color is a golden shimmer and the fabric is very lightweight. I ordered the 10R and the 8R (I'm usually a 12) and the 10R fit perfectly. The only glitch is the length. I'm 5'4" and this dress was about 8-10" too long. However, I just used some Hollywood Hem Tape and made it the length I needed. This dress fit like an absolute glove and I would buy it if I could! It does run large, so I recommend going a size down if you want the dress to be fitted. It was also incredibly comfortable because the material has some give. I also loved my first RTR experience and will do this again!

loved this dress!
This dress was incredibly flattering. Great shape and great color. It did run a little big though. I normally wear a 6 and the 4 could have been tigter. Also--I'm 5'9 with very long legs but the long size was really really long. It dragged on the floor.
