Glamorous night!

Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Dress fit perfectly and was very comfortable. Even the regular was still VERY long for my 5'4'' frame. The style made me look a little "fuller" I thought, but I still felt really glamorous in it. RTR is great - can't wait to use it again! (this was my first rental)

Perfect

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was actually a back up to my back up, but I ended up loving it and wearing it to prom. I am normally a 0 or a 2 and ended up wearing this in the 2 because it was the only size in stock. The color was great, as was the fit. It was comfortable, but a bit long. I wore 4 inch heels and it was still about an inch too long. So easy to dance in and I got many compliments on the color. I wore the Nicole Miller Maple Leaf Necklace and a pair of my own earrings. It was so simple, but definitely the dress for me. A+ for the customer service I received from Madison. She was the best representative I have worked with from any company ever. As a first time customer, I was a little apprehensive about what the going the rental route. After my experience with RTR, and Madison in particular, I have recommended the company to all my friends. Thanks for making my evening perfect.

This dress was sent to me because the backup of the dress i ordered had been too damaged to send. Nonetheless, to my surprise I loved the dress so much! It was really difficult for me to decide between this one and the one i originally ordered, but i ruled this one out because it seemed too plain for me. It is an absolutely gorgeous dress though!

the zipper didn't zip up at first, I thought the dress wasn't going to fit but it was perfect!

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
the dress was gorgeous! it was very long though, even with 4 in. heels. I had to use fabric tape to shorten it a bit and the zipping up the zipper was a two man job. the 2R wouldn't zip up easily so I thought I had to emergency order the next size up but I ended up just wearing the 2R and it actually fit amazingly! it's a beautiful, simple yet elegant. it was perfect because I'm not a very over-the-top person but the dress made a statement to my personality. I loved it!

Even though i didnt choose this as my prom dress it was SO beautiful!! i was really scared about the fit since I'm super small and petite but it fit quite nicely, albeit it was quite long but that's what heels are for :) I would definitely recommend. It really makes your waist look small and super flattering even to small boobs haha

Stunning dress and very comfortable.

Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The color of this dress is absolutely amazing in person and in photos. It fit very well, even with a 36DD bust. It's flowy and comfortable, perfect for a formal wedding. My only complaint is with the top of the dress; it rolled over slightly to expose the "grippy strip" that is supposed to keep the dress up.

I got tons of compliments on the dress!

Size worn: 0R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The waist is a bit tight, I had to squeeze into the 0R (it was a backup dress they sent since they ran out of my other ones and only sent it in one size) but the bust fit well. I danced effortlessly in it since the fabric is so breathable and since it stayed up rather easily. I didn't wear a bra with it because not only did the bra not fit with the 0 but it didn't even need a bra. I'm small and its well lined so I didn't have an issue. I wore 3.5 inch heels and it was still long so I ended up dragging it or holding it up. It was simple and flattered my body shape.

The dress was very long but perfect when worn with 3 inch heels. The fabric wasn't stretchy so I was afraid that I'd rip it at times.

Beautiful gown for a gala or wedding

Size worn: 0R
Overall fit: True to Size

The dress is a beautiful deep crimson color, and the black belt gives it a little spunk. It runs a pretty long so I had to use hem tape to shorten it. The bodice is very fitted, so prepare to suck in!

this was the perfect dress for a black-tie wedding.

Size worn: 0R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I typically wear a size 0 dress. . At first, I did not think I would be able to zip the dress, but once the dress was zipped and it fell naturally, it fit perfectly. The dress stayed up beautifully and was comfortable snug. However, the dress was a big long, though. I wore 3" hill and needed to lift the dress up slightly while walking and dancing.

The dress was elegant and flattering.

Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This was my first RTR rental and overall I was very satisfied. The dress fits true to size and it's very flattering. I got many compliments at the wedding despite it being a simple design. The only downside of this dress is that it is extremely long. I'm 5'4" and even with my highest heels the dress was dragging on the floor.

This dress was perfect for prom. I got so many compliments on it and I felt great wearing it.

Size worn: 2L
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress is a beautiful color and it has lots of great details. The neckline is very flattering. The ruching is elaborate which makes the simplicity of the rest of the dress perfect. The fabric is flowy and the material is very high quality. I chose not to wear the belt, but a narrow gold belt would be a nice alternative. The exposed gold zipper on the back of the dress is eye catching and many people commented on that as well. I thought the size 4L would be perfect but I also had the 2L for back up and it fit better than the 4L. The only jewelry I wore was from RTR, Nicole Miller's gold and crystal "Star Light Star Bright" and it was sparkly and elegant. Lot's of complements on the necklace as well! Comfort is very important to me and this super-flattering dress was very comfortable.

Great color!

Size worn: 12L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I received this dress as a backup because the dress I wanted arrived back to RTR damaged. I didn't need the extra length on this one. I'm 5'8" and wore about 3 inch heels and the dress was just at the floor. The belt really tied the look together. My only complaint is not so much that the top fell down, but that the jelly trim that was supposed to help the dress from falling kept turning over and showing. Also, the pleats on the dress kept kind of crumbling and not laying flat. Overall the dress was beautiful and photographed really well, but that was my only complaint. I wouldn't recommend for smaller busted ladies.

Even after confirming after I rented that the belt would be included, it turns out neither size I got had the belt in the bag! They forgot to include the belt, which was very disappointing as it really makes the dress.

Stunning in Red in a sea of black

Size worn: 6P
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress to a Black Tie Saturday night wedding. It was gorgeous option instead of black - which everyone else wore. This dress was flattering and comfortable. The bodice was fitted and the structure allowed me to go bra free. I am 5' 4" and I wore a 6P because I wore flats. The dress just barely brushed the ground so the length was perfect.

Lady in Red

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This was my first time using RTR. The dress is lovely the color was stunning I felt really pretty in it. The regular length was a bit long for my 5'4" stature but I carried it with 5" heels and it just barely touched the floor. It came in great condition well pressed and smelling nicely. The only con was the belts for both the dresses had broken clasps; but that was an easy fix with a safety pin. I was worried how it would all work out shipping the dress to the hotel I was staying at if it would come in time, if it would be in good condition, if it would fit and everything worked out perfectly. Though I do have to say in general I should have expected designer dresses run a tad bit smaller than the norm so I will probably size up for my back up from here on out.

Absolutely stunning

Size worn: 10R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I rented this dress for a formal gala and it was absolutely perfect! I usually wear a size 8 but I ended up wearing the 10 so I was very happy that I ended up getting a larger second size - the top was tighter than normal so I could breath a little better in the chest area with the 10 :) I also ended up wearing the belt but you can also wear this dress without it - either way, the dress looks fabulous. I received compliments on my dress all night!

Rented as a backup prom dress....

Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I tried to write this review back in April but for some reason it didn't post and so here I am in December finally finishing it. It was so long ago that I almost don't remember much, but I do know that this was a pretty gown, although I ended up wearing the red Monique Lhuillier ML Ball Gown. I know that this dress did not come with the black waist belt that is pictured on the model. I also know that the top felt a tad loose on my pear shaped frame. The bottom was also not very flowy so when I walked the dress would stop and tighten around my ankles sometimes. It was a nice dress but it did not have the wow factor I was looking for in my prom gown.

Simple, yet gorgeous dress for a formal wedding

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I am 5'5', weigh about 125 lbs and typically wear between a 2 and 4 in dress size. I ordered both the 2R and 4R since RTR sends a back-up dress at no additional cost. I ended up wearing the 4R because the bust was a little tight on the 2R and I wanted to wear a strapless bra, although you definitely don't need a bra with this dress. I wore 4 inch heels and the regular length was perfect. The dress just barely skimmed the floor. I chose not to wear the black sash that comes with the dress, but decided on pearl jewelry instead. As for delivery, the dress was right on time. The dress was guaranteed by 8pm and I received it around 4pm. I received compliments all night long and will definitely choose RTR for future events.

This dress fit snug around the chest and I did not have to constantly pull it up like many strapless dresses. The belt helped to accentuate the waist and the fabric was very flowy away from the body to help hide any hip imperfections :)

This dress was perfect for an elegant setting. Even among the finery I was complemented all night.

Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was a little snug, particularly around the waist, but that was good since it was strapless and it made me feel more secure in the fit. The length was perfect with standard heels, though, when you kick them off to dance you'll have to hold onto the end of your dress to avoid tripping. This is a very simple, elegant dress that I would highly recommend to anyone.

Perfect for a formal event!

Size worn: 12R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress for a black tie wedding, but I did put my own sparkly belt with it, as the belt that comes with it is quite plain and not stretchy so I was afraid it would come undone while dancing / sitting. The dress is quite fitted in the ribcage/bust so if you are wide in that area, order up a size ( I normally wear an 8-10). Very flowy on the bottom so any shape can fit without problem. I'm 5'4" and the length was perfect, with 4 in heels. So may be too long if you don't plan on wearing high heels. Overall I got a lot of compliments, and it worked well for a holiday themed wedding.

I ordered this dress as a back up, my mistake that i ordered it too big :( I ordered the 10R but probably would have done better with an 8 or 6. However, I tried on the dress and it was so soft, flowy and beautiful. The material felt rich and looked gorgeous. The color of the dress was perfect, it was not too bright or dark. It is definitely a dress to try.

I'm 5'3" so the "R" length was absolutely perfect, and wasn't too long even when I took my heels off. I would definitely rent this dress again!

I wore this dress to my husbands Army ball. It was a perfect compliment to his uniform!

Size worn: 8L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This was my back up dress and thank goodness I took advantage of ordering the 2nd one because the first one did not fit at all. I loved everything about this dress. There was no need to wear a bra because of the built in corset which was nice because then I didn't have to fight with a bra falling down the whole night. Could be worn without the belt. My only complaint was that the clasp loop at the top was broken off. I happen to have the exact color thread and stitched a new loop at the top. This could be a problem though for someone who is not crafty or does not have thread available since that hook helps keep the zipper closed and also tightens the top of the dress another 1/4 of an inch. I will absolutely be ordering again!!

It was wayyyy too long for me, which I expected because I am only 5' 2" and pretty much everything is too long for me. Thankfully my heels were ridiculously tall and it worked out. The bust was also a little big and I had to pull the dress up throughout the night, but again, expected because I am only 32A. Overall happy with this dress! Received tons of compliments and loved the color and simplicity of the dress.
