beautiful fit and details
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Loved wearing this dress to an evening wedding. It fits like a glove but true to size. The lace is just beautiful, and the photos don't do justice to its blue-green shimmer. The length is also great for petite ladies. The one (fairly inconsequential) flaw is that the zipper is really difficult to close - I think it's something about the fabric that makes it so. Best to have a helper to zip you up. But really, really fantastic dress overall. Tons of compliments.

the shiny details on the dress made it perfect for a NYE wedding!!
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I ended up sizing up because the underneath layer on the skirt was too tight in a 6. the bodice part fit better in the 6 though... the length was perfect for a family wedding...above the knee but not too short at all. and the keyhole in the upper back is so cute. the green metallicy details on this dress make it so different and gorgeous! lots of compliments.

I received so many compliments on this dress! I wore this dress to a winter wedding in Aspen and it was perfect! The dress was classy and nice enough for the occasion but still fun and easy to dance in. It's hard to see in the photo, but the iridescent green really stands out nicely and gives the look some sparkle. I found it to be true to size and the length was good on a short body. The zipper was definitely troublesome; I couldn't zip it up without help and even with help it was difficult. That said, once it was up, there were no other problems. Another great rental!

Perfect for Office Holiday Party!

Overall fit: True to Size

I was really impressed by this dress. The lace was really nice. It was a little roomy in the top, but it wasn't too bad. I loved the pleated skirt! It was perfectly sparkly enough for the holiday party but still conservative enough for a work event. It does look a little more blue than black in person, but the tag considers it black. Also the sparkles are more iridescent than gold.

Loved wearing this dress! Fit a little tight in the bodice but overall very comfortable. Length is appropriate for a family function even on fairly tall girls (I'm 5'7 and it hit a little lower than mid thigh, above the knee). Pretty lace detail made it extra special.

Perfect for a Wedding or Party, Very Comfortable
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was beautiful. I hadn't seen many lace dresses with an additional design. It looked classy, flirty and fun. I was going to my boyfriend's cousins wedding. It was the first time I was meeting his extended family and I wanted to look good/fashionable, but a little more conservative. It was very comfortable. The bodice hugged me in the right places and I got compliments on how thin I looked. I could see myself wearing this to a number of functions (holiday party, out for fancy dinner). I paired with gold/bronze accessories but you could definitely do silver or black as well. Only complaint is the zipper gets a little stuck and I needed my boyfriend to help zip. I don't think I would have been able to zip it on my own.

This was a great dress for a wedding or cocktail event. The lace was beautiful and the overall fit was very comfortable. The 2 was a little big on top, so I went with the 0. My only complaint is that the lining/lace got very static-y but it's nothing some static guard can't fix.

I wore this to my sorority's anchor ball this weekend and couldn't stop getting compliments!
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size

This dress fits really well once you get the zipper up. I had to get a friend to really help me out because the zipper tends to get stuck where the waist sinches. Otherwise, this dress fit perfectly in the size I normally wear. This was my first rental and I will for sure be renting from here again!

Just the right amount of everything for attending a winter wedding!
Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I loved this dress! The lace is so delicate and pretty and it has just a little bit of green and gold sparkle. It was perfect for my event! I am hesitant to say the dress ran small because I'm honestly not sure if it's the dress, or the harsh Chicago winter rounding me out a bit. I usually wear an 8, but I am so glad that I got the 10 as well! With a pair of Spanx on, it fit perfectly. Many people mentioned that the zipper felt a bit delicate, and I agree - it does. You need a little oomph to get it past the seam of the waist and it can be a little scary with the lace, but it worked out. Having a buddy to help you zip (harsh Chicago winter or not) is key. Another great tip someone mentioned that I will also pass along: static guard is helpful. I carefully took the dress out of the bag, and the lace immediately started "reaching" toward me! A pass with Static Guard cleared it up. Overall, an incredible dress that I felt like a million bucks in and received a lot of compliments for!

Fit great, the sparkly lace overlay looks really pretty. It covers you up, but the sheer layer keeps it young. Great fabric. The zipper was a little heavy duty with all those layers, so have someone you trust zip it up for you.

Great dress and excellent fit for pear shape. Very true to size. I think it can work for more casual or more dressy occasions and perfect for the wedding I went too as I didnt know how formal the affair would be. Loved the colors in the overlay. Just the right amount of shimmer. Pairs well with gold accents.

This dress was way too large for my small frame. I am normally a size 0, yet this dress was too baggy. It was too loose around the rib cage and too long at the hem. Also, the picture makes it look black and gold-be warned, it's actually black and green.

Great party dress!
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I loved this dress! It was great for my husband's office Christmas party. It has a pretty green sheen to the lace, which made it very festive, and I got a LOT of compliments on it. I would make two notes though to future renters-- the lace is SO static-y! Get static guard before going out, otherwise you'll be fidgeting with the dress all night. Also, as other people have commented, this dress is labelled black (even on the dress's tag) but it is definitely NAVY.

Back up dress, wish I could have worn!
Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Although I really liked this dress, I did not wear it. It was my back-up dress, but I might have chosen to wear it, if I could get the zipper up. Unfortunately, it is one of those dresses that is hard to zip, especially where the seams and boning are. I tried it on, but my husband was afraid he would damage it and thus was not able to get it zipped. If you get past that, very pretty dress. The lace has an almost iridescent sheen that looks green when the light hits it.

Gorgeous dress, but not a great fit for me
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
From the waist down, the size six fit well and looked beautiful, but it was a disaster on top. There was a lot of extra fabric in the lace part on top, so it did not lie flat, but bubbled outward and looked just awful. It's too bad, because if it fit me, I would have loved this dress. Perhaps this is not a great fit for petite body types.

I really liked the lace overlay on the dress. It is a pretty green glitter that feels very holiday. If I would have ordered the right size, I would have definitely enjoyed going to the party in it. It did tend to cling a bit because of static, but I'm sure a dryer sheet would have taken care of that had I worn it.

I wore this dress to a rehearsal dinner. I order both the 4 & 6 and ended up in the 6. It was pretty snug so I would say if you're in between sizes move up. It's really a NAVY dress which you can't see by this picture. But it was gorgeous!

The dress was very pretty but both sizes didn't fit me right, it is longer than I expected, almost to my knees (I'm 5'4"). The top fit but the back lace part on shoulders was oddly big. RTR quickly shipped out a new dress for me when I contacted them!

The navy color was perfect for my event, however the green-tinted sequins were not. Had the photos shown this fact, I wouldn't have selected this dress. I was bummed that it wasn't something I could wear....I'll try RTR again for my next event.

I would not recommend this dress if you are petite in the shoulders. The lace overlay was a little too big. I loved the dress and wish the lace would have laid flat. Unfortunately, there was some extra space in the front on the sides, right above the armpits. The lace in the back was saggy. Unfortunately, lace is not something that you can fix with some safety pins. I wore it anyway, and most people didn't notice. The dress fit perfectly everywhere else and was absolutely beautiful.

another RTR hit
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I received a lot of compliments on this dress. I ordered both a 2 and 4, and ended wearing 4. It definitely is true to size. I almost wished I had ordered the 6 since the 4 was just a tad snug, but nothing too uncomfortable. The zipper does seem to get stuck, so I had to have my husband zip me in and out of the dress, and he was struggling with the zipper due to the fabric. The lining underneath the lace did tend to ride up a bit with I sat down, but I think it was due to the fact that the dress was a little on the snug side for me. Over all the dress was a perfect pick for the event!

Pretty dress, very tight in the chest area
Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress was gorgeous (although the color is navy with greenish/gold trim not black with gold like I thought from the picture). My issues was it's basically strapless. I need to stop thinking I'll be able to wear strapless dresses, even if there's a lace overlay. The girls need support. I got a 4 and a 6, the 4 was too tight across the chest but perfect everywhere else. The 6 was way too big. Not RTR's fault. Next time I will get a 2nd option.

Beautiful dress, but the zipper was broken
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress would have rated 5 stars if it had arrived in better shape. It is such a fun party dress and a very flattering color and cut. When I tried it on upon receiving it, the zipper was hard to budge at the point where the two different fabrics meet but I got it to work with my husband's help. However, for the next evening's event it wouldn't budge and then broke. Luckily this was my back-up dress that RTR sent b/c my second size dress was out of stock, so I just wore the other style. But I was disappointed since I ended up loving this one more, but the zipper nonsense made it unwearable. I've used RTR many times and this is my first issue with a rental, so I know I will rent again. Just be aware that this dress might be damaged or hard to zip.
