Perfect Pick for a Black and White Themed Affair

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
This was the perfect pick my cousins Black and White themed Bat Mitzvah. Its very rare I get to wear white to a formal event, so I was excited for this pick. I got so many compliments on it! It does run big, so I did go down a size. The 10 looked "frumpy" according to my boyfriend. The 8 was a little tight around my hips, but all in all it fit great! The back is absolutely beautiful. I was able to war a regular black bra and you couldnt even tell!! I am tall, and I was afraid it may be too short, but was not the case at all. 5 stars for this hot number

Classy dress but odd fit

Size worn: 4

Beautiful and classy dress. The back is fabulous, but the fit is strange. Very big on top and much tighter on the bottom. 6 fit better on the bottom but top was huge. Still glad I wore it, I felt great in it!

Love the back!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
Rented this for my birthday party and, after a few tweaks, it made for a perfect party dress! The dress was way too long on me - I think it came down just below my knees. With the boxy fit of the dress it definitely wasn't very flattering! But with the help of some double-sided fashion tape, I "fake-hemmed" the dress a good 3-4" so that it hit more mid-thigh. FYI: The sizing is very off from the other brands that RTR normally carries, or maybe it's supposed to have a boxier cut, I'm not sure. Regardless, I would say this dress seems to be measured more along the US vanity sizing that we see in stores like Express and Banana Republic (where I could fit into a size 4 when I'm normally an 8). I rented a 6 & 8 and wore the 6, but I probably would've liked the 4 better.

Beautiful back

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
This dress was sent to me because the original dress I ordered suddenly became unavailable. I was skeptical because of the shape but as soon as I put it on I knew. It was very flattering in the front and the lace back was sexy but not too revealing. I wore a NuBra and felt the dress fit true to size, maybe slightly large. As usual top notch customer service from RTR. I will definitely rent this dress again.

I wore this dress for my bachelorette party in Newport. The dress was great and I loved the back. The dress does run big as some other reviews mentioned. I ended wearing a size down from my normal size. I ended up renting a big statement necklace to make the front a little more dressed up!

Great dress for a white themed birthday party

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
This dress definitely runs big. I ordered a 10 and an 8 and I'm glad I had the 8. The 10 looked like a sack. Even though it's a loose fitting shift dress, I did wear spanx underneath because the front is plain. Everyone loved the dramatic back. Being tall, I had to be careful about raising my arms when dancing because the entire dress moves up with them as opposed to a dress without sleeves. Paired with a bold red lip and classic black heels

Amazing

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress runs true to size. I thought I would have to go up a size to the 10, but the 8 was the perfect fit. I paired the dress with pearls but to add an extra flair to the front, I suggest a chunky statement necklace. The fabric is thick cotton, so it is breathable. I was also able to wear a bra and shaper with it (black of course). I loved the dress. Sophistication and class while still feeling sexy and young! This was my first time using RTR and it was an amazing experience.

This dress runs very large! I'm usually a 10. I wore the 8, but could have probably used a 6 because it was still roomy in the middle! The dress was great! I wore it for my birthday and everyone loved it! I loved the back of it!

Party in the back!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was absolutely amazing for this black tie wedding in Boca Raton. The front is very simple, but looked a tad big- maybe because I have a small chest, but the back was gorgeous. The dress was not as fitted as the model, but it still looked elegant. Both sizes 6 and 8 fit, but the front of the 6 looked more fitting than the front of the 8. The length was perfect for me as well, it looks a little short on the model but it ended up being a couple inches about my knee. I danced the night away comfortably in the dress. The only thing I was worried about was making sure not to get it ruined because it is white as snow. Definitely worth renting for your next affair!

Classy and gorgeous

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
The dress was amazingly gorgeous and the picture online is perfect in showing how it hangs and the back detailing. It was a little large, so I would have loved to have tried the 4 or brought a belt! The back was delicious and I got too many comments to count. I paired with a Kate Spade purse and dangle earrings that featured chrome, black and dark gray gems. Heals helped make it less saggy for me because it added some height. It was very comfortable and easy to wear. The material is delicate so I would suggest watching the type of bra you wear. I wore a lace bralette from VS which helped make it less noticeable in the back but outlines showed in the front. Nothing major to worry about, but just a heads up! All in all, this was a fabulous dress and I loved the simplicity of the front and intricate details of the back. Great for a rehearsal dinner or a wedding.

I rented this dress along with the necklace for a cocktail event. I typically wear a size 4 but ordered a 2 and a 0 after reading the initial reviews. I absolutely loved it. I gave it 4 stars because I do wish it had a little more shape in the waist area (you can't really belt it), but I have never been asked to stop or turn around so much in one night! I thought the length was appropriately classy and the lace both delicate and bold. I recommend this dress!

Gotta love that back!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This is an adorable dress, and genuinely has the most gorgeous back of anything I've ever worn. It was a little snug on my hips, which made the top not fit exactly as I'd like... hence 4 stars instead of 5. I'm surprised to hear people say it runs large because there's no way I could squeeze into that size 2. I felt it was a great length (not too bad for the tall girls, but it will make you a little leggy!) and I wore my strapless black bra with it and it was perfect! I wore this to a benefit for Alz where everyone wears white, and I was SO AFRAID there would be multiples of this dress, but thankfully I was the only one :) It wasn't perfect, but it was a great dress & I'm glad I rented it!

It started rough with this dress but I ended up loving it!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I rented a 2 and a 4, there weren't many reviews when I was renting it so I just went with my typical sizes because I love the photos. I rented this for a grad school gala, formal attire with a midsummer nights dream theme. I didn't want to go long and I wanted something a little more edgy and cool so this was perfect. When I tried the 2 and 4 on I was so upset because it's not as fitted and short as it was on the model, it looked matronly and baggy on me (esp the 4 - it was huge)! Given that I had a day to turn this around I decided I had to just "Make it Work" a la Tim Gunn - I fake-hemmed the dress to the length on the model and accessorized! A sparkly necklace, earcuff, statement shoes and red lip are what helped bring this dress from a "meh" to a "Wow". I don't recommend the dress to anyone who wants to throw a dress on and go, this is one that requires some thought to create a look around. Ultimately, I was happy with it - It was a comfortable, t-shirt fit so I could be free to dance and eat. Plus, I got compliments all night and people loved the sexy peekaboo back!

The dress was very true to size. It ran a little small in the hip/butt area. But otherwise loved how it fit! The dress is pretty thick so if you really start to pull out the dance moves, it can make you sweat. But, I loved wearing it!

Classy sheath with a gorgeous surprise back

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Other
I rented this dress for the premiere of a clients film and it was perfect. I do have to say that the fit is not like the model in the photos as it looks very short and fitted on her. I'm 5'7" and it came to my knees and the fit is definitely a sheath and not a fitted figure hugging dress, which was perfect for the event but not what I though based on the photos. I'm normally a 6 but got the 8 as a back up as I have big hips and was worried that it may be tight. It wasnt. The 6 felt very loose (I now see its just the fit) so RTR overnighted me the 4 (love them) but that one was a little snug in the hips but not so much I couldnt have worn it. I felt in between sizes but went with the 6 to be comfortable. From the front this is such a classic, simple, gorgeous sheath and then the back is such an unexpected beautiful surprise. I paired it with my own neon yellow pumps and matching earrings from RTR. It was perfect and I got compliments all night. All 3 sizes still had the tags on so I know I was the first to try this gorgeous dress and couldn't have been happier. Love RTR!

Not for tall people

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Date
This is the first dress that I have attempted to wear from this designer; I am tall and not rail-thin, I'm thin in the waist but have a full bottom. The area of the dress that was supposed to correspond to my hips was way up by the top of my waist and it was anything but sheath-like. I think this would be okay in the smaller sizes if you did not have a similar body type. I really wanted to be able to wear this.

Just wasn't right for me

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size

Unfortunately, I had to return the dress and swap it for another one at the Georgetown store. The previous reviews were right; the dress isn't white- it's almost a grey color, and it doesn't fit as nicely as it looks on the model. I wore a 4, and usually vacillate between a 4 and a 6, but even though it fit, the back sorta just hung there instead of being fitted. Glad I was able to return it and get something else, but it just wasn't right for me.

Bringing sexy back!

Size worn: 6
Rented for: Party
The back of the dress is gorgeous but it does run a bit big in the torso area. The dress fit in the chest and hips but made me look a bit boxy since you couldn't really find my waist. If your an hourglass shape, this one might be tough to pull off. RTR was out of size 4, so I'm not sure how sizing down would have compared.

I thought this dress would be amazing if only it were nipped under the bust and at the waist to show off some curves. It was a baggy fit overall and arrived wrinkled anyways. I wore a different dress to my party. I wouldn't rent this again unless I could have it altered to fit my curves.

Great fit & comfortable. I got a lot of compliments! It seems to fit a little looser and longer to me than the pics here. I'm an 8/10 & 5'9" and it fell a little lower on the thigh and was roomier than the pictures indicate. It had a few wrinkles from shipping and did need to be pressed which took a little bit since the label says not to use steam. It was a great dress

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I ordered both the 6 and 8, given the cut of the dress; a sheath style rarely works for busty woman who have been gifted with smaller waistlines.. More often than not, the boxy silhouette creates an unflattering look; making a woman appear heavier (in my case: pregnant) than she truly is. On occasion, sizing down helps, hence having given it a shot. Unfortunately, gorgeous as this dress is (especially the detail on the back for which the photo does no justice) the style was no different for me. This design is geared more toward women with more going on in the lower-back, than the upper-front, and something very toned and tight in the middle.
