Felt so good in this dress!!!!
Very comfortable, elegant (and sexy) dress! Received so many compliments on it. Fabric was super soft and the fit perfect for me. The front does dip low, so make sure you have the right bra for that (or double sided tape to keep the front from slipping down). I would rent this one again for sure!

Beautiful dress and so comfortable!
The dress fit great. It is a low cut dress so a bra would be hard to wear. I was able to go without and it was still flattering. Love the cape! It helped to keep my arms covered for a chilly NYE night, and it's long in the back so it covers your butt well ;) I was able to wear spanx even with the slit in the front. Overall it was a fun dress, gorgeous oxblood color and so comfortable!

Fun winter wedding
The dress was so beautiful. You certainly need some tape to keep then top in place but fit beautifully. The cape sleeves were great for a winter wedding.

Came through in a pinch
My original rental was not available for the day I reserved it so RTR sent me this one. I was very skeptical at first so I asked for 2 more dresses. After what seemed like hours of deliberation, I went with this. I am glad I did. The color was gorgeous and the fit was extremely flattering. It is very low cut but I was able to wear a non padded plunge bra. It worked beautifully.

Beautiful color! Great for Hamilton.
Very pretty color. It's a true burgundy like a good wine. There is absolutely no stretch so it was tight on my hips because of this it also caused the slit in front to be way more revealing than the stock photo shows. I am a pear/hourglass shape and I would not suggest it for others like me because of that literal no stretch but otherwise it's a beautiful dress. Length was perfect, I was wearing 4 inch heels. The caplet is super fun and very easy to move in

Best Reception Dress Ever
It fit like a glove and accentuated all of my curves and hid my arms which I loved. My only problem was the slit was very difficult to work around. I had on glittery Betsey Johnson heels and they caught on the dress with every step I took.

So many compliments
I wore this to a gala where the theme was burgundy and grey. As you can imagine, there were a lot of women in burgundy. Even so, I got so many compliments and this dress truly stood out. I'm a 34DDD but I was able to wear this without a bra (just petals) and it looked great. The slit in the front is pretty high but I just learned how to sit so it wouldn't ride up. The material is pretty forgiving, I wore it without any spanks on (because of the high slit), and it looked great even though I had a baby 9 months ago and would usually need spanks. I would definitely recommend.

It was a tiny big for a 4 but it looked beautiful. I also came down much lower in the front than I expected.

So lovely!
Great dress. I'm 5'5" and regular length was perfect. Sizing was spot on but I could imagine the dress being a smidge tight around the hips. Make sure to buy some fashion tape to keep the chest where it should be. Loved this dress!

Compliments all night long!
I'm small on top but straight through waist and hips. The 6L fit better on top but was not as forgiving through the middle and hips so I wore the 8L. With 4" heels the 8L was perfect length. Gorgeous dress and I felt beautiful in it!

Amazing Gown
This gown was perfect for a black tie wedding. So gorgeous and classic! I was so sad to send it back. Felt very comfortable for a long night, too. I chatted with a RTR stylist to determine heel height for this gown, and her recommendation was perfect! I'd love to rent this again!

I got married at city hall in this fabulous dress!
I couldn't wear a bra with this; you will definitely want fashion tape! The high slit made it tricky to sit in without flashing the world. But a very sexy dress and great color!

Perfect fit at 8 months!
I rented this for a gala while 8 months pregnant. This dress was so incredibly comfortable and held everything in including my new very large chest. I sized up from my usual 0/2 to a 6 and the fit was perfect. The length for the regular worked with 3 inch heels.

Growing bump!
I am 4 1/2 months pregnant and I am 5 feet and the dress fit pregnant for my bump! The only thing was the top part of the dress. It was very low, but nothing I couldn't fix with invisible tape and pins. I received so many compliments on this dress. Loved it!

In a sea of black dresses, this one really stood out...
This was my first RTR rental so, I wasn't sure what to expect. I liked the dress and felt good in it, but I gave it four stars because it seemed as though the front slit had been damaged and when they fixed it, they didn't line up the material just right so there was a bit of a "pucker" that made it hang a little funny. It wasn't real noticeable and I received tons of compliments on the dress. Everyone loved the color. As far as the fit, I don't consider myself to be very "bustie" (36C - small C) but as you can see in the photo, it kind of made me look that way. For me personally, I felt a little uncomfortable with that and wish that I would have had some more coverage. I'm usually a 2 or 4 and I decided on the 2L because the length was perfect and even being the smaller size it didn't feel tight - Plenty of room to eat, drink and enjoy yourself. I loved the drama of the cape. The dress is pretty and unique, both coming and going (front and back). Overall, I'm happy I selected it!

Stand out in sexy sophistication!
I received lots of compliments on this dress--the color is rich and vibrant and the cape is a great unique detail. The only downside is that it's quite revealing if you have a large chest--I was popping out of it at times.

Beyoncé/Wood-nymph realness
This dress is divine. I only discovered after renting that the queen bee herself wore this exact style (stars, they're just like us!) after I ordered and was googling for styling inspiration. Channeling her powers made me feel like a million bucks and it was a huge hit at the wedding. I'm 5'3" and wore 3" heels and it was just right. Show stopper, must-rent.

Classy dress. Beautiful color.
The dress was exactly what I expected, form fitting without pulling or tugging. The cape in the back was a nice added touch and wasn't overwhelming. The front is pretty low cut which determines what kind of bra you wear but other than that, very comfortable! I would rent it again. I'm 5'5, had tall heels and the length for the regular was perfect. The front slit makes its comfortable for dancing and walking without tripping!

Rented this gown on a whim but during the wrong season so ended up wearing my backup gown instead. I will rent this gown again for a wedding in September... perfect for a baby bump.

Didn't love it :/
Was excited for this dress but ultimately didn't love it. Deep V was a bit too much and the fashion tape I ordered from RtR came too late so I had to pin myself into the dress. Midsection is tight so wear shapewear. Color is flattering and I like the uniqueness of the dress but waaaaaaay too much cleavage. Definitely be prepared to tape/tuck/lift your chest to make this work.

Drapey but revealing
Rented this for a black tie wedding on a hot summer day. Original got the 12 but it was too tight in the bust area. The 14L fit but was slightly snug in the bust area too and loose in the waist. Loved the gown because it hides all the unflattering areas; however, the slit was long in front and I had to be careful my Spanx didn't show. I wore a bra and the dress accentuated the area nicely, but towards the end of the night, I was done with all the revealing areas.

I wore this dress to a black tie wedding and received compliments left and right. I normally wear a size 8 or 10 and was able to still wear the 10 at 4.5 months pregnant. I went braless as I couldn't zip with a bra + pregnancy boobs (36DDD), but I felt comfortable without one. The girls were definitely on display though! 5'2" with 3.5" heels was perfect with the regular length dress.

I received this as a back up dress that ended up fitting my best friend very well- it was too small on me. At times I had to help readjust the neckline and it was very long. Very beautiful gown!

Stunning color, perfect and flattering fit, and incredibly comfortable
Pros: GREAT color, perfect length (I am 5'5ish" and wore 3 or 4 inch heels and the dress length was exactly right); super comfortable; FLATTERING Cons: not much - I would recommend double sided tape for the top just to make sure things stay in place I received so many compliments on this dress! I wish I owned it! Will definitely rent again.

Perfect dress!!!
I've been dying to rent this dress for a while and I am so glad I had a wedding to wear it too! I received countless compliments on the dress it was a huge hit. The color, the cape, the fit, is a fantastic dress. It did run a little big in the waist but nothing too bad. Very comfortable and easy to move in. I brought fashion tape to tape down the V but I didn't even have to use it the top is very secure. I would rent or even buy this dress again in a heartbeat

Great Dress for Formal Occasion!
I was 28 weeks pregnant attending an East Coast vineyard wedding. I was unsure of what size I'd be when I rented it, but read several reviews and decided to go up two sizes to be sure (I typically wear a 4). It was right, but the fabric has some give and is also pretty forgiving and I got TONS of compliments. I would definitely recommend it, whether you're pregnant or not! My only suggestion would be to go with the long. The dress hit the floor perfectly when I was barefoot, so in heels it was a bit shorter than I would have preferred. All in all though, a great rental and I was very happy with it.

Gorgeous but daring neckline!
I loved this dress! It is very flattering but definitely requires some bravery to leave the house in this neckline! I probably would have sized up if a 4P was available but I was able to get away with the 2P. Dress tape is recommended so you're not showing off from the side!

Couldn't wear the dress :(
I rented this for a wedding but unfortunately couldn't wear it because it was too short- I am 5'9 so I'm pretty tall, but I have never had that happen before! I tried on the 2R and it fit width-wise but the dress hit me above my ankles, which looked ridiculous
