Lunch at Lasarte.
This is a beautiful, classy dress! I wore it for a lunch at Lasarte in Barcelona. Upscale is an understatement and this dress fit the bill. I tried going sans bra but this dress was nipple city! I attempted to rectify the situation with band-aids to no avail. I ended up wearing a nude bra and left my hair down and back to cover it. A Nubra type item is an absolute must if you are trying to keep this dress classy. The fit was flawlessly elegant.

Wrong dress for my shape
I really wanted this to work. The dress is gorgeous, but it just didn't work for me. I have narrow shoulders but larger thighs and butt. The dress was clingy on my thighs, big in the waist (lots of extra material around my tummy), and huge in the neck and shoulder area.

Classy but sassy!
This dress is amazing! I wore it for my bachelorette party and it was the perfect option for me. Very beautiful in person. Definitely fit true to size and you can even get away with wearing a black strapless bra if you have it. I would actually love to own this dress, just have to see it it goes on sale eventually :)

Dress did not work out at all. Way too large.
I rented this dress for my Welcome Cocktail Reception the day before my wedding. I normally wear a 6 and rented both a size 6 and a size 8. Both dresses were way too large, ill fitting and the dress was much longer than it looks in the pictures. The fabric was a nice quality and the RTR team was very responsive regarding my rental, however I ended up just taking the credit to my account and finding a dress locally the day of the event.

Love the back!
I'm a fan of shift type dresses, especially when I can pair them with ankle boots and a casual jacket. The dress was a little long for my taste, but the back makes up for it!

The of the dress got everyone's attention! It was beautiful.
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!

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

Beautiful dress!
I was unable to wear the dress but it was absolutely beautiful. I ordered a 6 but could have used the 4, but UPS does not do Saturday delivery to the area I was in. The length is a little longer than in the picture.

Gotta love that back!
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!

Great dress but runs too big
The dress is beautiful. Very well made. Runs about 2 sizes large. I usually wear a 4 sometimes a 2. Both the size I ordered and the smaller backup size were too big. I could have worn the 0. It's longer than the picture but would still have been fine had the size fit. Will try this again in the future in the smallest size.

It wasn't for me.
Was just too conservative and not as cute as I had hoped. The fit was fine. The back didn't have the size/impact as in the picture. The sleeves were also very wrinkled and the dress looked pretty worn. Of course, RTR has a new dress coming my way overnight! Best service!!!

Definitely looks better on than on a hanger.
Thank goodness I read through all the reviews, otherwise I would've ended up swimming in the dress. It runs big, very big. I normally wear size 2 dresses, sometimes size 4 if I know I'm going to stuff my face. However I ordered a size 0 and it still looked loose on me. I was initially disappointed when I took it out of he box. The quality wasn't great, it had wrinkles on the front, and the dress isn't really white. The color reminded me of concrete cement. Yes, almost light gray! I tried searching for another dress but couldn't find anything that caught my eyes. So i just decided to put it on anyways. To my pleasant surprise, The dress looked much better on. Then on the day of the event it actually looked pretty nice with the accessories, makeup, shoes, etc. I also received compliments ;)

This was the first time I had strangers asking me to stop and turn around!
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!

I needed a dress for a wedding at 7 months pregnant.
I really, really wanted this to fit. It's a gorgeous dress in person. Alas, it was not meant to be. As boxy as the fit is, it's not meant to accommodate a late, third tri pregnancy bump. Even the size 8 was too tight over my bump. This probably could have worked for a first tri or early second tri pregnancy, though. If I wasn't pregnant, I'd rent this again. It's a stunner.

Classy and gorgeous
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.

Party in the back!
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!

First rent
Sleeves were a bit tight. The back is gorgeous. Wore a lace black bra which wasn't conspicuous. The dress doesn't give much shape though for your figure so opted for size 2. Also the size 4 was a different off white color. Probably from some cleaning process.

Great summer dressy dress!
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!

Beautiful, sexy dress
I wore this dress for my wedding anniversary. It was a gorgeous dress. Because it isn't tight fitting, the dress is conservative enough to wear to a nice restaurant. However, the back is surprisingly sexy, so it's a nice compromise! It has a loose fit to it, and for the most part, it is true to size. I could have gone a size down, but I feared I wouldn't be comfortable.

Amazing
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.

Big on top, tight on bottom - back is beautiful!
The dress looked kind of like a sack on the top but it was tight around my butt area so the fitting just did not look right. Otherwise, the back is very beautiful.

Loved the back but was large in the midsection :(
I rented this dress for my bridal shower but did not end up wearing it because I was not happy with the fit. I ordered a size 2 and 4 and the size 2 fit my chest and hips, but the midsection seemed to have extra material and was not very flattering, which was a shame because it looks beautiful on the model! Possibly a smaller size would've looked better but I did not have time to order a smaller size.

Great dress for a white themed birthday 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

Beautiful back
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.

Love the back!
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.

AriZoni Theatre Awards ceremony
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.

Husband's reaction to seeing it was: "WOW" :)
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

Great dress, runs bigs but the smaller size worked perfect. Comfy and pretty!
It's not super white, more of a grey so it was fine for a wedding. The smaller size fit great and it was comfy all night. This was my first rental and I can't wait to order again!

Cute spring dress. Conservative yet sexy.
I liked this dress! I was surprised that I liked it much better from the front than the back. The back is fairly baggy until it hits the booty.

Classy sheath with a gorgeous surprise back
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!

Nailed It
This dress was perfect! I got almost as many compliments as the bride. The 4 was a little tight but the 6 fit perfectly. It was the perfect length for a sit-down dinner and I was able to dance with out giving a "show." I absolutely love love LOVE this dress and wouldn't hesitate to wear it again!

Classy, great pop of lace in the back
Wore this to my engagement party. Runs very large, The 2 was too large, but the 0 was just right. Keep in mind, I do not wear a 0 in anything. It still fit like a shift dress, not fitted to the body or anything. Got lots of compliments.

The fanciest potato sack I ever put on my body.
I ordered this dress in an 8 and a 10. I wear usually an 8 or 10 in dresses. The 8 was gigantic. I literally could have fit another person in the dress with me, particularly around the midsection. I wish I would have ordered a 6.

Cute from behind, but like a sack in the front.
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.
