This was our first gala as a married couple!

A beautiful dress perfect for any formal occasion. I paired the dress with sheer black tights, black wedges and a top knot bun. The look was so classic. I received compliments all night long!

This dress is a classic. Rave reviews all night.

I usually wear a 6 or 8 but was definitely an 8 in this dress. It's is very fitted on the top. I had a wedding guest tell me I won "best dressed at the wedding" and had compliments all night. I already booked this dress again for another wedding later this summer. You will not be disappointed. This dress is why I love rent the runway.

Wore to my niece's baptism

Great classic A line dress. Definitely conservative, perfect for my event. A little tight around the rib cage, but only after eating a big meal!

This dress was perfect for the summer wedding! Easy to pair with black shoes & bag!

True to size! A little short but I'm 5'6" and with heels I definitely had to watch how sat down.

I felt very comfortable and sexy

The dress is a bit tight in the bust, but otherwise it was very flattering. This was actually the back-up dress I ordered after my original dress showed up damaged (already contacted RTR, they were VERY accommodating to make it right). The fabric was very comfortable and breathable. It was perfect for an outside wedding and reception in July. The best part was it had pockets!! I got a lot of complements on it.

Comfy Classy

This was such an easy dress to wear. Classic colors and cut but still flattering. Not too tight in the waist, rib cage or bust. I wouldn't say this dress was "short" however when I sat down, it rides up a bit, to where my butt was almost on the chair, if that makes sense.

Not a good fit

I sized up because of the reviews that it was tight in the chest but the bigger size was too full in the skirt and too low/big in arm holes. Overall, it was just ok and I wore something else to the work awards luncheon.

Very conservative.

This is a very Conservative dress. If I weren't wearing it for work, I would think it would be way too boring to wear to a special event. Neckline has a small cut in the middle with a bow on top, but that's about it. The fabric is very very shiny on top but it doesn't really have that much that special about the dress it's very pretty to wear to work, but for a special event I would want to wear something with a little more pizzazz.

The dress fit perfectly and it was so comfortable! I wore it to a rehearsal dinner, and I got so many complements all night! The gold top dress is the perfect color in pictures. I will definitely be ordering this dress again!

Pretty and classic!

Runs small and material doesn't give. Possibly better for women with larger bust. Tip for ironing use the heavy steam setting with synthetic setting (low heat) worked great for me! Beautiful color and great for fall and winter events!

pretty good

I'm way closer to a 00 than a 0 so it was a bit big. The sleeves were just a little long, the waist was kinda loose, & it was fairly long but I was going for the conservative/classy look so it was okay. Got multiple compliments so overall it was a good dress & very nice service.

Classy

This dress was very classy and great for a wedding or work event. It was more on the conservative side but still great. It was a little tight around the ribs and a little looser on top. Probably would work better for someone with a larger chest. I highly recommend this dress! :)

Classic and Adorable

This was the perfect dress for a summer wedding. It is a great cut and very classic style that I loved wearing. It does run small, I would recommend sizing up. I ended up wearing my true size 6, and would have likely been a bit more comfortable in the 8. Regardless, I would highly recommend this dress!

Love this dress!

I wore this to a rehearsal dinner and felt so pretty! There is a little bit of a sheen to the material and its thicker and very flattering. Loved the pockets! Highly recommend! Super classy dress

I love the ease of renting through RTR. Ordering and returning are simple.

The dress fit great! I'm very small up top so I didn't completely fill out the bust but the cut of the dress doesn't make it noticeable. The length was great for a work holiday party. I'm typically a 0 petite in dresses and I had no issues with fit. The material is thick and the 2 was much to big on me. The thickness of the material made the dress look boxy and not flattering when it is too big.

Simple yet elegant dress!

I loved this dress! This is my first time renting a dress and I'm loving the experience so far. I needed a dress that was modest and formal yet not fancy. I find it hard to find dresses that are different and that no one else has so I was excited to order this dress. Based on the reviews I sized up. I usually can fit into an 8 because I have a small waist, but a larger chest and butt (sounds great but so difficult haha). I was worried the 8 wouldn't fit because the reviews said to be careful if you're bustier so I went with a 10 and 12. Although the 10 fit, I definitely felt more comfortable and had more room in the 12. I'm short, 4'10, but worn with 4 in heels the dress hit right below the knee. The fabric is really nice and doesn't wrinkle, the pockets are super cute and barely noticeable so it doesn't make the dress look less elegant. The top half is more like a champagne color and paired really nice with the black. I definitely reccomend this dress and RTR :)

RTR Saves the day!

Rented this as a second look for engagement photos but we had to reschedule due to severe weather. RTR was amazing and understanding. I returned my clothes the day after they arrived so that I can rent these again for our rescheduled date! This dress is gorgeous and incredibly comfortable. While the 6 fit, I just didn't know what to expect as far as how much sitting, standing, moving would be involved with the pictures so I think I will wear the 8 when our rescheduled date comes around to give a little more wiggle room. Can't wait to rent this one again!

Beautiful material and cut

I usually wear a size 6 dress, but this dress was so tight in the rib cage I had to size up. The material is great and it was easy to steam out the wrinkles. The pockets were a nice touch as well.

Received compliments all night!

Rented the 0 and the 2, the zero was slightly damaged on the zipper making it difficult to zipper off and on my body. I ended up wearing the 2 which fit very similarly just a little larger on top, but you couldn't tell and it looked great!! Such a classic dress, received compliments all night!

Beautiful quality dress perfect for company holiday party!

I loved this dress! It runs true to size but it most likely works best for an average to smaller bust. The material is extremely high quality and arrived in perfect condition. The fabric is thick and luxurious with a gorgeous sheen. Wish I had this dress in my closet!

Beautiful dress

This dress is amazing, the fabric is very luxurious, I didn't want to take it off, but I couldn't zip the top all the way up because my chest was to big. I couldn't even zip up the size 10. Very sad, so bigger chested ladies beware!!!

Gorgeous and Flattering

This dress exceeded my expectations for my brother's summer wedding in Illinois. I could wear a normal bra and it was comfortable and fancy feeling. The material was very nice. It covers any stomach problem areas and was easy to dance in all night long. It was a unique twist on the little black dress and I really loved wearing it.

Perfect for wedding rehearsal! Classic and cute

The waistline is small so I felt I couldn't eat too much, but I am renting it again, I love the classic black & ivory. Satin look, definitely sexier than originally thought it would be. Loved it.

Dress runs a little small, I ordered a size up for my backup size and wore the larger size due to the waist being tight around my ribs. Very beautiful dress, convenient with pockets, and the perfect length

Perfect for work holiday party

My husband's new company had a holiday party so I wanted something that was fancy without being too flashy. This dress was perfect! I'm normally between a 2 and 4, and this dress is very fitted in the rib cage so the 4 was perfect while the 2 was a little too snug. I would wear this again in a heart beat!

Didn't wear it

The dress is so cute, but with a larger chest and little room to accommodate it didn't work for me. The waist fit me perfectly, I wouldn't want to size up.
