Peak a boo white is cute but baggy waist

Loved the bottom detail and seeing the leg. It didn't accentuate the waist and fit like a sheath. Wasn't flattering on my body but would be good if you wanted to hide waist.

So easy to rent the runway! Striking dress.

I'm normally a size 10; this 10 fit like a glove, provided the hand is wearing Spanx! If you do not have well-toned abs, size up or get your shaper out. I'm 5-4", length was almost perfect, about 1" too long but the slit with ruffle made the back almost function as a train. Lots of compliments. Very comfortable to wear. I was sorry to send it back!

Not great

This was my backup dress and I'm glad it was as it was a big miss. I usually don't order new dresses without reviews but took a chance since the photo looked so lovely. First of all, the white part is actually cream - not a bright white like I thought it would be. Second of all, I was too short and the ruffle hit too low on my leg. Overall, it was drab and hung oddly. I wanted to make sure to write a review and leave a picture. This would definitely be better for a taller gal who isn't looking for as structured of a dress.

Comfortable formal affair dress

Dress runs true to size and was a comfortable formal dress for a wedding. The slit is not too high so never had to worry about flashing anyone on the dance floor.

I had a great selection to choose from and it arrived on time with no wrinkles.

I had a formal gala to attend and originally ordered a size 6L dress to wear but started getting nervous when reviews were stating that the dress ran big. I appreciated that RTR allowed me to change my size before it was delivered because I switched to a 4L and it fit perfectly. The weather was chilly so I was able to add a sweater to it and it still received several compliments. I will definitely use this service again and recommend it to others.

Bella of the ball

This dress was perfect with a little hint of sexy without being too forward for a formal event. It is very forgiving in areas of concern such as the tummy. I didn't need to wear shapewear. If you have a short torso, I suggest wearing petite

Neckline was too high, felt like it was choking me.

I wanted this to work so badly. The 12 was too tight and cut into my neck. The 14 was too big. Also, it hung more limp than it appeared in the photo. I thought the fabric would be stuffer and more pronounced. Thankfully my backup jumpsuit was fabulous. Always order a backup!!

Subtly sexy slit makes this a winner!

Super comfortable dress- conservative on top with fun, playful bottom. Easy to wear, though ran a little big. I'm right between sizes 8 and 10. Wore the 8. It fit well on top but was loose through the middle. Very flattering and easy to move in.

Pretty dress, not how I imagined it would look

It was nice, not really what I was lookingfor once I had it on. To me, I felt like I was in a pretty dance costume; where the ruffles hit, how big the ruffles were.

Great for a black tie event!

This dress was great and super comfortable for an all night event. I wore it from 530pm to 2am. It was a tad bit long even with heels, but it didn't matter. I got compliments all night!!

Dramatic dress, but for a taller woman. Need a size down through torso.

Beautiful dress, but hung very loose. It wasnt the right look for a curvy short woman.

The 2R was a tad long, but I was wearing low-heeled shoes. It fit nicely and not too tightly, and the slit was not too high.

B&W Havana Nights Gala

This was an amazing dress I rented for a black-and-white Havana nights themed gala. I got so many compliments! I can't wait to rent another gown for RTR. The only comment I had is anyone that has a little bit of a chest this dress will fit very snug, I didn't have that issue but I could see it being an issue for another body type. Other than that it's very true to size, very comfortable, and unique looking compared to just a block gown.

Stunning Dress - lots of compliments!

I was worried that it was going to be too long for me, as I am 5'10, but 2 inch heels and i was good to go. Stunning dress and I received lots and lots of compliments. I'd totally rent it again in a heart beat!

This dress was a great option for this event. It was my back up dress but wouldbhve worn it if it had fit me. It was sleek with the great little flare at the bottom.

Great dress, highly recommend!

I'm so happy I chose this dress! It was a little large and I ended up wearing the 2L and not even trying on my 4L backup size. It definitely has a lot of room in the stomach area and is flexible and flowy. The four stars instead of five is for this because a tighter torso would have been nicer. I absolutely loved the length! I am 5'8" and was able to wear 2 1/2 inch heels and still had a little train behind me! I wouldn't have gone a size smaller because the neck of the dress is very snug. If that's something you don't like then I wouldn't recommend this dress for you. Otherwise it is a very classy dress with a fun slit and ruffle! Side note: I wore this for a military ball and it complemented my date's uniform very well!

Super comfortable and classy!

I wore this dress for a charity Gala event and it was perfect! The dress is very comfortable and easy to move around in. I wore 3" heels with it and that was perfect. The slit up the front side made the dress stand out and was so fun to wear. I received many compliments! Would love to rent this one again!

Didn't wear

I didn't ever wear this dress. It would have been beautiful but it was fitted at my hips and chest but had too much extra fabric at my waist. So if you have a relatively small waist just be careful.

Simple and stunning

My husband selected this dress from my short list for our event. I was thrilled to read the length for the long version would allow me to wear heels. The dress was high quality and I loved the way the ruffle draped. Wish I would have sized down though, as it was large in the waist. Still very beautiful and fun to wear.

Loved it!

This dress was simple and elegant. I received tons of compliments on it! The only thing to watch out for is if you a VERY pear shape (like myself!) it was fitting on the hips and a bit loose in the bodice and bust.

Gorgeous dress, but runs large and long

I ordered this in a 2 and a 4 based on the size chart. The 2 was baggy and unflattering, which is sad because the dress itself is gorgeous! I'd absolutely recommend the dress; the fabric is nice and light, and the ruffle is a fun, flirty detail. Order a size down from what the size chart tells you, and if you're short (and not wearing 6" heels), get the Petite instead of the Regular.

Cute but Not the One

This was my backup dress for a formal wedding. I chose not to wear it because it fit a little too big in the torso on me. Also unless you take a full length photo it doesn't appear as if you're wearing a fun gown. Since a lot of wedding photos are taken from the waist up I felt it wouldn't photograph well. Also at 5'1" the regular length was about 2" too long.

Loved the flouncy slit

I was pretty disappointed with the fit of this dress over all. I usually wear an 8 and I ordered my backup in a size 6... the 6 was too big. It was as if a pregnant woman had worn it and stretched out the stomach. There was a lot of extra material and I couldn't even belt it. I got the high neckline and sleeveless style because I didn't want to mess with a strapless bra but the edges of my lowest cut bra still peeked through the armholes and I ended up having to go strapless anyways. STILL- That being said, I am 32DDD (so I don't adore going strapless) and the fit around my bust was just perfect. Wasn't too tight, wasn't too loose. the slit with its ruffles was SO fun. I got a dozen or so compliments on the dress! It was very comfortable (probably because it fit so loosely) and I wore it for a solid nine hours and shut down two bars after staying till closing at our black tie dinner party.

Perfect for black tie!

This was my first RTR experience. This will be my first of many!!!!! This dress is gorgeous. I blew up my FBook feed with compliments when I posted the photo. I carry any weight in my thighs. The 10R fit like a glove but I felt a little self-conscious about it grabbing around my thighs so I wore the 12R. I didn't want to have to wear shape wear and feel like I had to "suck it in" all night. The white ruffle detail makes this dress! It has a weight to the fabric that tells you how good the quality is. I'm 5'8", 169 lbs, 47 y.o. There's a small give to the fabric that makes it so comfortable. Between having recently lost 15 pounds, hair, make-up (I rocked a deep, red lip with this!) and this stunning dress - I felt like a million bucks! Thanks RTR!

This size 6 fit me perfectly and fit the theme "Old Hollywood " to a tee!

The length was perfect, because of the cut, I could wear a regular bra and shaper (optional). The slit allowed for a sexy leg and shoe to accompany. The length was perfect for for 5'4" height with 4" heels.

I liked the other dress I selected better. I think this is better for a winter wedding.
