I was stopped on the street by three strangers to get complimented! I felt GREAT!

It's a great dress. My zipper was fine.. I would have liked a 14 but 12 is biggest in this dress.. There is NO give at the middle... But it is a high quality gown and it looks fine even if a little tight... I could not lift my arms well to dance because the sleeves do not have any stretch. The length was perfect for me with 2.5-3 inch heels... No problem! I did not like wearing a strapless bra.. But I have never before been stopped on the street like this!! Three times.. Complete strangers stopped to compliment me.. One was a young girl.. I think she thought u was a movie star. Wear Gold with this.. The moonstone necklace was not a great fit.. It is more silver actually than gold.. Order up the necklace in the model for it!!

Was perfect for my formal!

It fit great! It's such a nice dress and I got so many compliments on it. It was very comfortable as well. Like other people said the zipper is a little hard to get up but it's not to difficult. I would definitely recommend this dress!

Amazing customer service! This dress was a back up and I'm so glad I had it! Love RTR!

Dress was gorgeous! Got so many compliments. I had no issues getting it on or off for that matter. My only comment would be that it's a long dress. I am 5'8 and it was on just hitting the floor with almost 3 inch heals. I loved this dress and how it made me feel. I will definitely use RTR again !

First RTR experience. Dress showed up as scheduled. Great experience!

This was a very nice dress. I actually chose this one as a backup dress and in case my first choice didn't fit! It fit also, so I wore it out to dinner. It isn't terribly formal. It was comfortable. True to size. I am 5'6" and I chose the long because I was going to wear 3 inch heels. I had to hold it up. Wish I would have chosen the regular length. Other than that, nice dress for a semi-formal occasion. I got a few compliments on it!

Beautiful dress but too damaged to wear

I loved this dress! The 2R fit beautifully and it was the perfect choice for a fundraising gala I was attending. The problem? The zipper was stuck and my husband couldn't zip up the back after several minutes of pulling. I was worried I wouldn't be able to get the dress off because the zipper was so jammed. I also found a hole near the right sleeve and a few smaller holes around the zipper. Even if I had been able to get into the dress, I couldn't have worn it due to the holes. I might try this rental again in the future because the dress is so pretty, but I was disappointed that this didn't work out.

Beautiful conservative dress!

No give in the lace area! I rented this for a gala and was unable to wear it due to my poor judgement in ordering size wise. ;) RTR was awesome about sending me a replacement/backup the day before.

Such a fun dress and lots of compliments!

I actually didn't have nearly the issue with the zipper that I've been reading horror stories about. I got it zipped up all by myself! I had a friend button the top button, though. I ordered a 4R and 6R and ended up going with the 4R. The 6R fit a little more comfortably in the waste (the band is pretty tight) but the fabric between my chest and waste was loose and it made it look big. So, I sucked it up and went with a little tighter waste. It really only bothered me while I was sitting down. The long flow of the dress made is so comfortable to dance in. The only sad part was that the arm holes were tight enough to not allow me to raise my hands during songs that required them being raised! The arm holes were tight just resting my arms, though, so if you don't have plans to raise your arms you should be good. Overall I absolutely loved it and would certainly net it again if the opportunity presented itself!

My dress got to me early, which I was thrilled about! It was gorgeous and I got so many compliments!

It fit just about perfectly. It was slightly tight on top but I didn't mind. It just doesn't give too much. Over all, it was perfect for the occasion and I got so many compliments on how it flattered my figure.

The dress was exactly what I wanted and more!

The dress was over the top gorgeous. It fit my body type perfectly. The only con was the bust area was a little snug. Other than that I absolutely loved the dress. The length was long enough with my heels on. I definitely would recommend this dress for any occasion.

Beware of the iridescent design on the top!

The dress looks beautiful on the site- but beware, it has an iridescent top that looks like lime green spray paint on top of the beautiful lace. I almost didn't wear it I thought it was so tacky. I wore it anyway assuming the lighting would be low, and it ended up being comfortable and pretty- but the "sparkles" takes the dress from adult to 5year old Disney.

Beautiful, elegant, classy!!

This was one of the 4 back up dresses I received because both of the sizes of my original dress were unable to ship. It fit perfectly and was incredibly comfortable for the whole night! I didn't wear heels with it but if I did it would have been too short.

This was my first rental and I absolutely loved this experience!!!

I received so many compliments on how beautiful I looked, and how pretty the lace detail was. I read on previous reviews that the color on the lace is a bit iridescent and I found that to be true but not a deal breaker. It wasn't over the top, just enough of a difference from the rest of the black fabric. Other than that it looks exactly like the photo and fits extremely well. I am recovering from giving birth and didn't want to wear anything revealing or unflattering, this dress fit me in all the right places and left room for flow in all other places. I've lost most of my baby weight but struggling on a the last few pounds so I felt comfortable in this dress.

Easy to wear beautiful dress

I went to the larger to have more room in the bust because I am a 38ddd.. The wedding was on the beach and this dress looked so pretty on the beach because of the flowy bottom.. I got a ton. Of compliments and felt beautiful! I would definitely rent this dress again!!

A little matronly

This was my backup dress and I ended up not wearing it. I did like the dress and how easy it was to wear. I did have to wear a bra and that's saying a lot since I have some larger ladies. I also didn't have to wear spanks in it which I loved. The reason I rated it so low is based on my occasion (Gala). In an a more informal affair the dress would be perfect and very comfortable.

Fit was perfect even though I was 4 months pregnant. The zipper does get a little stuck in the back but you just need someone to help. No issues unzipping. Loved this dress and received tons of compliments.

I absolutely love this dress! I was getting compliments on it all night. I felt so elegant in it!

My biggest concern prior to receiving it was that the sleeves would be too tight. I was pleasantly surprised, it fit perfectly. The only issue I had was with the top. The top of the dress is solid black covered with a pretty sheer layer over it. The black part kept sliding down. I wore a black strapless bra which kept it from being noticeable. I guess if you're a little more blessed then I am you won't have that problem!

Didn't wear

This was my original choice but I ended up wearing my back up dress. This is very pretty, but it just seemed too simple for me. It's a great choice, very pretty, just the other dress I wore had a little more sex appeal. I think this dress would be good if you were pregnant and trying to find a none maternity formal dress.

Elegant dress! Perfect length

The waist on this dress runs small. I went a size up than normal after reading the reviews, and I'm glad i did. I wore my regular bra underneath bc I didn't want to go strapless and it still looked great. The lace detail at the top looks green/gold (more green).

Pretty and work-appropriate black tie dress

It was a little tight in the rib cage area - the waist is higher than natural waist, the waist sits on your lower rib cage. I wore a strapless bra without an issue. The top has a pretty flowered green iridescent and black detail. You cannot see the green in photos, it is also subtle appearing in person.

Super comfortable and FUN!

This dress was perfect! I wore it to the Marine Corps Ball at the Naval Academy and it was perfect for the event. Very comfortable to dance in, flowy, and received tons of compliments. I have broad shoulders, so I wore a size 8 and it fit great. I paired the dress with emerald earrings suggested by RTR and it was a perfect match to the green in the lace top. Loved it!!

Amazing dress! Worked great for a formal charity ball.

The fit for me was great! But the length gave me a little trouble. The petite was MUCH too short so I was overnighted the regular length, which was slightly too long. But overall, it was comfortable and classy! I can't say enough for RTR customer service, the acted fast and got me a dress that fit after the first dresses to arrive were too short.

This dress is gorgeous!! Got lots of compliments on it:)

I wore this dress to my Prom and it was perfect!! I'm 5'5" and the dress was just a tiny bit long, but I still wore flats and it was fine. The gold in the lace is a lot more green the. It looks on the model, but it's still gorgeous.

Loved this dress! Felt like a princess!

Wore this for my senior prom. I was very insecure about getting a prom dress online, but I just had to get this dress. I really liked the green iridescent and lace on this dress. The zipper wasn't that big of a deal to me. I was able to zip the dress up myself, so that was good. The waist was very fitted, almost to the point where I couldn't breathe at the end of the night. I had to put fashion tape on the bust area since the dress kept falling down. Overall, I absolutely loved this dress. I received a lot of compliments. I would do anything to relive that night and wear this dress again:)

Nice and elegant but not WOW

The dress was very elegant but It didn't wow me. Sleeves were a little tight and I don't think my arms are particularly thick! . I liked the way the skirt flowed. And accessorizing was easy since no necklace required

I ordered both 4R and 6R. I normally wear a 4 but it was too right on the ribcage and wore the 6R. Perfect length ! I'm 5'5 and was able to wear 2" heels. It truly is an elegant dress and perfect for a ball!
