I got so many compliments on how well the dress fit.

I wore really tall heels and it was still a little long in the back so I was stepping on it all night. But it was totally worth it.

Ordered for my back-up, but had a hard time deciding! Definitely not a backup dress!

Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
Great dress! Heavy material and a lot of fabric below the waste.(a smaller size would have made a difference). My backup size was a 6. Glad it wasn't a 4, or I would have never been able to make a decision! A very, sexy, but elegant dress.

Third times a charm!

Size worn: 12L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
First, I have to commend RTR on their excellent customer service reps, this was the third dress that I rented ( the first two just weren't quite right for me) and each time my replacement dresses were deliverd on time with no issues. Also when the first two dresses were not what I needed I was met with nothing but friendliness and prompt troubleshooting in order to get the dress of my choice shipped to me overnight. Thank you RTR! Now, on to the dress, I rented this dress for a friends black tie 30th birthday party. It was perfect for the occasion! I didn't want to outshine the birthday girl but I still wanted to be stunning. I was sent the 10L and 12L, while both are true to size I wore the 12L because of the halter neckline and my full 36H bust. I didn't wear my bustier because it created too much of a lift, so if you have a fuller bust I would say you can go braless. The fabric on the dress is heavy which was perfect for the weather in January in Chicago (burrrr). My favorite thing about this dress was the high/low hemline, I think it adds a little something extra to the gown and it's a plus for a taller girl if you are worried about a dress not being long enough. I am nothing but happy about my whole experience, I can't wait to rent again from RTR!

The fit was to die for if your pear shaped. I was stopped by at least 8 people commenting on how beautiful the dress was. During the barat procession a whole table of women sipping martins exclaimed "oh wow look at her!" Remind yourself that I was walking with 400 people decked out to the nines is gorgeous Indian sari dresses. this is a special dress for sure, show stopper!

Beautiful dress. Felt like a celebrity in it, even with a broken arm!

Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
After a stylist session at the NY showroom while on vacation I rented this for a red carpet 40th birthday celebration. I never would have chosen it just looking online as it looks very plain on the website but it is gorgeous in person! Thanks to my stylist (Danielle?? I think), who pulled it as option even though it was not on my list. Perfect fit and flare from bodice to skirt, very flattering cut and very COMFORTABLE! No need to "suck it in" all night :) The fabric is beautiful and is a good backdrop for some fun earrings and a glitzy clutch. Runs small, I had to wear the back-up 6 and I am ALWAYS a 4. Very substantial fabric, no need for a bra or any special undergarments. Perfect length for 5"7" plus 3" heels, back just hovered over the floor. I usually wear 4"+ heels but with a broken arm I needed to be more steady on my feet so it was perfect. My husband, who has great fashion sense and would be honest if it didn't work, also loved it. Loved this dress, wish I could keep it!

didn't work for me!

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I have a pretty straight body with hardly any bust. I thought this dress would help me look really feminine but it didn't do anything for me-- it would be hard to wear a bra and without it i was completely flattened out! It sure is beautiful but didn't work with my body. I tried it on in front of my 9 year old twin girls and husband and nobody had anything to say... (even though i first liked it), so i knew it was not a good fit. Oh well.. good luck :(

I loved it and I felt very pretty!

Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I normally wear a size 4, but I was glad I went to the showroom for a fitting. I ended up with a size 6 and it looked and felt wonderful. The only real problem was that the actual dress that was delivered was a bit longer than the one I tried at the show room, I brought my own shoes to make sure they fit with the length of the dress but it looked longer and I had to pick it up at staircases, etc, but not a big deal. Will rent again, the experience was quick, easy and the stylist at the showroom was very helpful.

It is a very heavy dress. Do not recommend for a spring summer/wedding. Fit great. Runs a little long (the back of the dress). I wore 4+ inch heels so it worked out well for me.

The numerous compliments I received both at the wedding and after from friends who saw photos of me!

Size worn: 0R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is gorgeous! I wore it for a wedding and didn't want to take it off at the end of the night - that's how much i loved it! The bodice fit extremely well and while it was slightly low in the back, I taped by strapless bra to the back of the dress and it stayed in place all night. The length of the dress in the back was just a bit too long. I am 5'3" and wore 4 1/2" heels and if I stood up straight the back of the dress just barely touched the floor. The heavy quality of the fabric and the beautiful design made this dress feel very luxurious. I would definitely rent it again.

I'm a petite, so it was pretty long on me, and the bust was a bit too large, so I looked a bit flat in it. Other than that, it was beautiful and I wish I had worn it. (I wore a red dress instead to match my date.)

Pretty but heavy

Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Beautifully made, but difficult to wear. The high low detail did not hang correctly, and I'm of average height. I rented this for a may wedding, but its only suited for winter or late fall. The train was also inappropriate for my role as a guest ( not a bridal party member) of the wedding. But, it may have only had a train as the length wasn't right for me. Girls over 5'7" needing a powerful statement dress would do well here.

The most stunning black gown!

Size worn: 0R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This is hands-down my favorite RTR rental yet! I rented it for a formal gala that took place at the Waldorf Astoria in NYC. The fit was perfect! I wore 4" heels and, with those, the dress dragged on the ground behind me the tiniest bit, but I loved the effect. You couldn't see as much of the front of my leg as you can see on the model, but it still looked beautiful and the hi-lo effect was evident. The fabric is GORGEOUS - you can't easily tell from the pictures but it's a matte black jacquard with the most subtle pattern that adds so much to the already beautiful material. I got compliments on it all night long and would rent this dress again in a heartbeat! Thank you RTR!

It did not fit. Plus if you have big hips like me it is not flattering for curvy women. The bottom half made me look TEN times bigger then I am. I would not suggest it.

Went to a black tie charity ball.

Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
As a classic pear shape, this dress was the perfect fit! I got compliments all night long and even had a couple girls write down the name of the dress so they could rent it. I'm 5'6" but I have short legs so the R length was still too long. I went to a tailor and had them do a temporary hem on it, which they removed for me the following day. The cleavage was the right amount of low-cut for me, not too much and held everything in place. Loved this dress.

Beautiful ball gown...

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress was exactly what I had hoped for. It was a perfect fit and I felt regal in it. It fit snug on top, hugged my waistline in a very flattering way and had a beautiful full silhouette on the bottom. The dress material was thicker than expected, which contributed to its full appearance. The length was long in the back, even with tall heels, so I had to lift the dress a bit when walking. Otherwise I was very pleased. I received numerous compliments all evening and felt wonderful in the gown.

I cannot say enough amazing things about this dress. It was FUN, dramatic, SUPER COMFORTABLE, flattering and just the perfect hint of sexy (deep-v). The fabric was luxurious and the the skirt was more dramatic then the picture shows, which was great. The bottom makes you feel like you have a bit of a train but still gives you an excuse to buy a killer pair of shoes. Felt like a princess.

Loved this dress! I ordered the six and the eight...the six was just too tight in the bust area, so I wore the eight. Couldn't wear a bra with the dress, but it made the "girls" look great! The dress was fairly heavy..and since it hit the floor in the back, whenever I went up or down the stairs, I had to step carefully. Kept the accessories simple..just wore a silver charm bracelet and drop earrings. It allowed for a dressier shoe however. I received compliments all night...and it made my arms look great! It gets a thumbs up!!

I loved this dress! I received so many compliments. I wore it to my husband's holiday party. It fit wonderfully. The only issue I had was that the top did kind of squish everything down. I don't know if it was the dress or the strapless bra I had on. The brocade fabric is heavy, which was perfect for the holidays. I would absolutely wear this dress again.

I liked the way the dress fit in the bust of the size 4 better but it was shorter in the torso and the halter strap seemed as if it would be uncomfortable for all night wear. A little fashion tape and the size 6 was good to go! The fabric does not really give and is rather heavy and could be hot in warmer times of the year. The dress feels luxurious and has a more subtle pizzazz. Very flattering cut and forgiving!

I am 34B-26-37, so more on the pear shape size. I wore 4R and it fit me like a glove. It was very flattering and I received a lot of compliments. The fabric is very thick which was perfect for an event in February. I wore it with a strapless bra and didn't need fashion tape. The dress is very thick and stays in place well. Five stars!!

This was actually my backup but it fit so perfectly I had to wear it! The bodice was very comfortable and flattering! The pictures don't do the fabric justice because at first glance I thought it looked plain but when I saw it in person the black lace is gorgeous! My only complaint was that the front hem didn't cut up as much as it appears to in the picture but I wore 4 inch heels to give it a little lift.
