Cute, Comfy, Very Wedding Appropriate

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Usually I don't rent dresses this conservative, but I am 8 weeks pregnant and feel like I am a different size every day due to bloating and changes in my chest size! So I just wanted something simple, comfy, and covered up. This was a great choice! The under layer is black jersey, with a pale pink lace overlay. The pink lace has silver metallic thread in it. It doesn't look silver so much as just shiny, as it looks on the model. I wore the 6, but the 4 also fit me, probably better than the 6 did. But because of all my pregnancy craziness I went with the 6 and belted it. I had problems with the lining draping below the lace in the front; possibly because I wore the bigger size? It was a pretty casual wedding so it was not a big deal. This would be a great dress to dance in, and definitely something you could wear comfortably all day if you had to. It was very comfortable and low-fuss!

The fit was great and this dress was perfect for a spring evening affair! It was very flattering and very comfortable. I spent the entire evening running around the event and did not fuss with my dress once!

The fit ran a little small. A lot of room and stretch with the fabric. The lace over the dress is a sheer pink and is lined in black. A perfect dress for a wedding!

Awkward fit

Size worn: NONE
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I was so excited to rent this dress but when it came and I tried it on, the fit was awkward. Probably not the best for a girl with a small chest. I don't think it was something I can pull off.

Great dress for a Chicago wedding.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
Runs a tad small, but not too much. Very comfortable and no fuss. I wore cream/neutral shoes, like the model did and think that was a good choice. I did not like black shoes with it. Received about 15 compliments on the dress, many people asked where I purchased. Simple but beautiful. Did try a 4 but preferred the 6.

I wore this dress as a bridesmaid to my friend's NYC wedding. The color for the wedding was lilac and the dress was the perfect shade. I was very nervous about the fit. I'm a small size 0 so even normal 0s can run a little big on me. This dress fit perfectly. It hugged my curves but in a clean way so it was very classy and sexy at the same time. It was also incredibly comfortable. It's modest in length but it fits so nicely that it's a very sexy dress. I was thrilled with it.

Overall fit: True to Size

I actually didn't select this dress for my summer wedding - huge mistake. Unfortunately the dress I chose wasn't available last minute and the wonderful people at RTR selected this for me as a replacement. It was amazingly comfortable, light, easy to move in, but still very chic and sophisticated. I received compliments all night.

Being the loveliest lady at church. Aside from the bride, of course.

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was beautiful. I wore it only to the ceremony portion of a wedding and changed into a herve for the reception. The only negative of this dress is that the lining underneath the very light purple lace is black, and from prior wear the black lining was hanging out from under the lace a good inch or so. If I would've known that in advance I could have taped it but I didn't realize until it was too late and it was a bit strange looking. This is a dress that I think would look beautiful on someone who is more conservative, possibly older, or just doesn't like to show a lot of skin. Absolutely church appropriate and so pretty. Just make sure if you are renting it you grab some double sided tape in the even the lining pokes out.

Beautiful dress!

I wore this dress for a wedding rehearsal dinner. It was so pretty, the color was great, and the material was soft, comfortable, and maintenance free. There was a couple of snags in the fabric and the zipper seemed to sit funny perhaps from all the wear, but it didn't bother me too much (that's why it's a 4 out of 5). I got so many compliments and was really happy with my choice!

I originally ordered this as a back-up dress. When it arrived, the lace had a very noticeable snag, so I did not wear it.

My best friend's rehearsal dinner

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I could've worn the 6, but I knew I'd be eating heavier foods later and went with the 8 for comfort. For some reason the lining hung a little lower than the overlay, but it was a quick fix with some pins. You couldn't tell and I didn't notice the whole night. Everyone loved this dress, and I felt sophisticated wearing it.

I ordered the 8 and the 10. I ended up wearing the 10, but the 8 looked kind of great too, I went for a little extra length. I loved the material. The length was perfect for a work event.

Special dress for a beautiful wedding!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Normally a size 6 but the 4 worked well and hugged my curves! I fretted over what to do with my hair but I got lucky and my attempt at a braided side bun was successful! Paired the dress with pearl earrings, silver shoes, and a grey clutch. The dress had more of a pink shimmer with black lining- loved it and felt special wearing it! Will definitely rent again soon!

So comfortable

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
So for this dress, the lining you see through the lace is black and the lace is a lilac (pink/purple) metallic. It looks a little more lilac in the photo than it does in person. What I mean is, the black lining jumps out at you a bit more. It's pretty, fits well even with a long torso, and is super comfortable. No wrinkling, no fabric worries if you are outdoors and it starts to rain, conservative but feminine and shows your curves.

The overall of this dress is just elegant! I rented this dress as a "try on". I was torn between two dresses and this was one of the contenders. I am currently waiting for the other dress to arrive, if you have curves go for it! This dress is comfy, elegant, beautiful, and I will definitely be keeping it in my short lists. You do although have to be a bit taller to wear it. I am 5'6.

Very flattering fit and the dress recieved lots of compliments. The black slip of the dress is a little longer than the lace. I used double sided tape to fold the hem up so it wouldn't hang lower than the scalloped edges.

It was a Christmas party at a very nice Inn.

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
The dress has some stretch to it, so if fits your shape, I found that very flattering. It was comfortable and easy to move around in. I found the black lining hung a little lower than the lace but it wasn't a problem. I wore this for a Christmas party and it was perfectly festive.

CLASSY

I wore this for a daytime military awards banquet. First off I have a very large chest (36DDD) and wore the size 10 without a bra. I have never in my life worn anything without a bra but this dress held them up! I used double sided tape to hold the black under sheath up so it didn't hang lower than the lace. Not really a big deal. Fit my curves like a glove! I paired it with pewter shoes and loved the look. I highly recommend this dress if you are attending a more conservative event. It was by far the most unique eye catching dress in the room!

Very pretty dress! Some reviews said the slip is black and makes the dress look darker than the photo, it look almost exactly as pictured to me! Loved it!
