Feeling glamorous and sexy without showing too much!
The color of the dress is so much more beautiful in person. A rich wine that really stands out. Felt like a million dollars.

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.

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.

Perfect for fall/winter occasion
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.

I wore this out to dinner at an upscale restaurant for my first anniversary.
The dress was beautiful and made me feel sexy while still elegant. My main issue was my bust - I bought a low V neck bra but didn't realize that the edges of the cups would be visible. When I first tried the dress with the bra I didn't think to sit down, but when I sat down at the restaurant the front of the dress shifted a bit and my bra was pretty visible. I ended up just letting it be because it was too hard to continuously adjust and my husband said it looked like it could just be part of the dress (whether he was lying to make me feel better, I don't know!) If I wore this dress again I would probably try to find a different bra or use some tape to try to stick the edges of the bra to the dress. But overall I felt great and highly recommend the dress.

Fit great - needed some tape for top but no issues throughout the night. Wore three inch heels so no adjustment needed on the bottom. Very comfortable for dancing too!!

The dress was a hit.
I received many compliments on this dress. It was perfect for the gala I attended. The one issue was the top does not have a lot of fabric so my breasts kept peeking out. If you have large breasts, you will need a lot of tape to keep the top in place.

This dress is different from any dress I've worn before and from any other dress at the event
I'm 5'8.5", so I opted for the 2L instead of regular. It fit well with 3 inch heels on but when I took the heels off was super long. If you're under 5'9" I think you'd be safe wearing the regular vs the long. Otherwise it fit well and I got a ton of compliments on it.

The BEST formal non-maternity, maternity dress!
I was 27 weeks pregnant and so nervous about finding a dress (preferably non-maternity) that would fit well. This dress exceeed all of my expectations and fit perfectly everywhere - I didn't even need to use fashion tape on my chest (win!). Not pregnant, I usually wear a size 2-4, so I ordered a 6 and 8. The size 8 ended up fitting the best (mainly in the front slit, since the belly pulls it up prettt high). If your close to your third trimester and looking for a formal dress this is the one!!

The dress was incredible!! It was a huge hit and I got tons of compliments!
I wore this for a formal garden wedding and it was the perfect dress. It was comfortable while still being form fitting and flattering. My sizing isn't updating but for reference, I am 5'3 and 140 lbs and it fit perfectly. I was easily able to dance and move with ease wearing it. My only suggestion is to be mindful if you're sitting for long periods of time. The high slit can make sitting for long times slightly uncomfortable. Besides that the dress was perfect. The color is gorgeous and the cap was AWESOME. I would wear this dress to every wedding if I could. Totally loved it!

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!

Perfect dress for a wedding! I received so many compliments about how I glowed in the dress!
I ordered size 10 and 12 and ended up wearing the 12 because my bump was big. Maybe a 14 would've fit better. I had to shimmy into the dress and my husband had a bit of a hard time zipping it up but can't fault the dress because my baby bump was so big. All in all, the dress was beautiful and it received tons of compliments.

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.

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.

Perfection
Wore this for a NYE wedding. Color is an absolute dream in person. Less maroon and more of a rich cranberry. Fit true to size and the length was perfect with 4" heels. Don't be afraid if you have big boobs! The cut is very sexy but not over the top. I had to get creative with my bra situation (i.e. duct tape and a very helpful boyfriend), but it totally paid off. Also Beyonce just wore this while pregnant with twins so....

This dress was PERFECTION
This dress fits true to size. I ordered a size 8 due to the reviews and pictures posted by the other women who wore this dress; and got a size 6 as a back up just in case. The size 6 fit like a glove, it is very comfortable. No undergarments were necessary I danced the night away feeling as good as I looked.

Beautiful dress - not for anyone with a chest
This dress is very unique and pretty, but you truly need to be flat chested to pull it off - or very comfortable with a lot of cleavage! I planned to wear this to a formal event for my husband's work - but it was incredibly low cut and no appropriate for the event. I was very disappointed because I love the style and color!

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!

Amazing dress for those with a baby bump!
I wore this dress to a gala for my husband's grad school. I was initially nervous about finding something that would work with my 6 month pregnant belly, but this dress was perfect! It was form fitting without being too much, the length was great for a 4 inch heel, and I didn't even need to wear a bra (just used a bit of fashion tape to keep things in place!)

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!

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.

I rented this dress for my sister-in-law's wedding. I received SO many compliments!
When I rented this dress, I was a little concerned about the high slit and what undergarments would work best. I would recommend pasties and garment tape to keep the top in place. It was a little difficult to sit because of the high slit, but it was absolutely worth it! Such a fun dress to wear and it photographed beautifully. I wore the regular length because my heels were not very high. It was perfect for black tie optional wedding in the cold Chicago winter!

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!

My favorite rental so far!!
Wore this dress to the Liberty Ball in Philadelphia and I had several people stop me and ask where I got my amazing dress from! The dress fit true to size, it does have a plunging neckline but nothing inappropriate. I didn't wear a bra nor did I need to wear fashion tape. Rent this dress, you will not regret it! I hate that I have to send it back!!

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!

Elegant Dress
I loved this dress. I'm 5'5 and ordered the L because I had 5 inch heels. The L made the length perfect for that. It was tight and low cut. The middle slit makes it difficult to wear spanx and even underwear are a challenge. I ended up having to wear an adhesive bra as well so that it wouldn't show. I received a lot of compliments and felt good in it however I did not like it in pictures as much
