A bit dowdy

The dress itself is beautifully made, but the fit emphasized my big hips and de-emphasized my small waist. Made me feel a bit fat.

Holiday Party Perfection

I have worn this brand before and love the conservative style and flare so knew this dress would be perfect for a work holiday party. Long length perfect for tall ladies with heels and the fit makes it comfortable to wear all night and eat sitting/standing. I am always a 2 with this brand that does tend to run slightly large just do to the conservative nature of the fits. Great color and the lining is very comfortable with the lace overlay.

LOVE!

I love this dress. It's true to size, maybe a tad roomy on top but comfortable and easy to move in. I'm debating buying this dress, I love it so much :-)

Great for work holiday parties

2 is usually my smaller size, but I ended up wearing the 0. Bummer that there aren't pockets like my other favorites.

Beautiful dress you can wear all day!

I really loved this dress. I wore it all day Christmas Eve to work and then to my family's house. It never was uncomfortable or wrinkled! Size 2 is my normal size and it fit great! Not too tight, not too loose.

Loved the service and the process of RTR.

Just didn't fit the way I truly wanted it to so I didn't end up wearing the dress. But it was great quality and looked cute. Just wasn't what I truly wanted.

Classy and perfect for the occasion

This dress was perfect for the occasion. The dress fit perfectly and I got tons of compliments that night. It runs true to size, I normally wear a 12 in a fitted dress like this and it fit like a glove. This was my first experience with RTR and I will definitely rent with them again.

Pretty dress. Awkward fit.

Tight in the hips and too big up top- fit awkwardly. Would be a pretty dress but not made for people with hips.

Great for the holidays

Loved this dress. It wasn't snug on the arms. I was about 7 weeks pregnant with twins so I did have to go up a size. I wore this to a fundraising event and got a ton of complements. You can accessorize with either gold or silver!

Add a belt!

I agree with other reviewers about the extra fabric in the mid section, but the dress was so pretty and comfortable that it didn't bother me much. If you add a skinny belt, it solves the problem.

Alternate dress sent

One of the dresses I had ordered was not available to send, and they included this dress instead. I wore it and it was ok, but I didn't love it. Just not as dressy as I would have chosen.

Classy and modest but sexy

Loved this dress! It fit well without hugging my curves too much and was a great length. Hubby thought I looked sexy and I felt very classy. Wore it on a dress up date and to the theater. Found myself wishing I had the perfect bracelet to wear with it, though!

Loves this! Perfect fit!

I am on the left. This dress was a perfect fit. It looked great and I received a lot of compliments. I took one star off because it was a little difficult to lift my arms above my head (dancing, clapping even). Overall I loved it and would rent again.

Great fit and very comfortable!

I wear a 10, but usually in dresses I have to go up a size. I am very grateful I could order two sizes of the same dress because the 12 fit nicely. I wanted a dress with sleeves since it's been a little cooler and something that hit the knees. I'm 5'10" so it's not always easy to find a dress with extra length.

Fit well and was comfortable throughout the evening. The top is sheer so you need a strapless bra.

Classy and cute

Comfortable and suitable for classy/conservative events but the red still makes it fun. I'm 5'4" and it hit a few inches below my knee. Due to some shoulder sheerness I needed to wear a strapless bar.

Great dress!

I was skeptical of this dress because of the mixed reviews and didn't love the black outlines around the lace design while it was on the hanger, but it looks terrific on. Needs a strapless bra.

Perfect red lace dress

This is a looser fitting dress with beautiful red lace detail. I easily could have worn this to the office but it fit in perfectly at a Holiday party. You can wear your normal bra with this and it fell right to my knees. The lace was not itchy and I did not find the dress to hug tightly anywhere and the slightly nipped in waist have a gorgeous silhouette.

Amazing detail and fit!

This dress is a fabulous dress for work or dinner. I wore it to the end of the year dinner and ballet. It was perfect length, and fit. It's not stretchy, if you are big busted you may wish to size up. Gorgeous color with black detail.

Prefect multi-occasion dress!

This dress was my backup for a wedding, but was so gorgeous I wore it twice, once for the wedding and once at work. It was a little large in the arms and stomach, but not large enough that it was noticeable. I received numerous compliments on both occasions. Will definitely rent this dress again!!

Perfect fit!

This is my first time renting a dress. What a great idea! The dress came in plenty of time so I could exchange it if necessary. The quality was great! I researched the reviews before selecting this dress so I knew it would be a little longer than I would have liked, but the fit was great and very flattering! I got several compliments. I will definitely use this service again!!

FESTIVE! Runs large!

I'm a pretty solid 4. Sometimes a 6. Never a 2. This 4 is large everywhere: shoulders, bust, waist, hips. It's just big. HOWEVER, it is beautiful. It's surprisingly comfortable for a lace dress. It's longish, but I'm shortish. I think it's perfect for the holidays or Valentine's day. I'll try the smaller size.

Elegant, classy and spectacular color

I rented this as my backup dress but ended up wearing it. It ran big, but the cut was so elegant and color so lovely that even a bit loose through the torso, it still was very flattering. It was very comfortable and that red color was stunning for Christmas. I wore a regular nude bra, even though the upper bodice was sheer/see-through because it wasn't noticeable.

The 4 runs slightly large in the stomach and length for someone 5'2 and a "small". Wearable though!

Pros: Modest and nice dress, good quality and not too thin. Looks nice. You won't have a VPL in this and can wear whatever bra you want! Cons: I am 5'2 and this dress went 2 inches below my knees, which is fine. The stomach / mid area ran large so it wasn't super flattering. The size 4 gave me plenty of breathing room / eating room but too much so that I looked about 1 size larger than I was. No stretch in the fabric.

My first RTR experience could not have been easier.

Surprised that the 6 fit me so well - I am 5'9", about 148 pounds, slim through top and torso and usually wear an 8 or 10. Nice that there's a bit of stretch. I wore a nude-colored bra and you barely noticed the straps; black, red or pink might be a good option, too.

This is a beautiful dress with a weird fit

Very nice material. My regular size was snug on the midsection and based on the reviews my back up was a size smaller rather than larger. It bunched a lot when I sat but looked okay standing. If I had the larger size as back up it would have been perfect.

This was really pretty, but a little too matronly

I'm 27 & was looking for something just a little less conservative for a holiday party. This is great if you're looking for something where your chest, shoulders, and back are covered and if you're looking for something a bit longer in length!

Elegant holiday dress

I rented this dress for to be a tour guide in a Christmas home tour. I didn't end up wearing it because it was too cold out. It was very pretty and probably a little dressier than I had needed. Also, I am petite and this length was a bit too long. But for taller ladies this would be a win!
