Love the color! Very pretty for a holiday party!
This dress was a beautiful dark purple, made of quality material and fit true to size. Bonus-there are pockets on the dress! I am petite and the dress hit right at my knees. I received so many compliments on the color and style-great holiday party dress. The only complaint is the bottom hem was a bit wrinkly due to the thicker band.

Wore this to a business dinner. Was perfect for the event.
The other comments about the hem being bulky were spot on. It ended up being not very noticeable. Loved the dress!

Nice dress
This definitely fits large. I am a true 8 and ended up wearing a 6. It was a nice dress but nothing extraordinary. For some reason, I was expecting the bottom black "spots" to be beaded and they are not. It is a flattering dress though.

Comfortable and flattering
I wore this for Christmas Eve mass and dinner. I'm 5.10, 145-150, 34-A. Ended up wearing the size 4. Comfortable dress. The bottom hem was wonky and stretched out, but looked much improved after ironing. The boning did poke a bit on the waist, but I probably wouldn't have noticed if I'd worn a slip. Overall a good dress beautiful purple color and loved the black velvet on the sleeves and skirt.

My date thought I looked amazing!! :)
I loved the dress, but it ran a little big. I usually wear a size 2 for most dresses, but after reading other reviews I opted for the size 0. I was worried a 0 would be too small, but it was actually a *little* too big. I felt it was a little loose around my waist. I think since it was a little loose, the fabric would rub against my hips and my skin ended up getting super irritated and leaving a rash. Despite all of that though, my date thought I looked amazing. The dress is also comfortable to be in.

Beautiful dress made with quality material!
I rented this dress for a Christmas party. The dress was beautiful and I received a lot of compliments. The dress does run large. Even the size 4 was a little loose but the fit is very forgiving. The length is perfect for a work event.

This dress is a beautiful color and has a flattering figure. It was just a little big for me!
The dress is a rich, beautiful color. I think the color is even prettier in person than online. I got this as my backup dress, however, and it was a little big on me. I would definitely order it again and get a smaller size.

The dress was perfect for my graduation party.
Runs a little large - get a size you'd normally wear and then a size down from that. I normally wear an 8 and the 6 fit perfectly.

The color is GREAT and the picture really doesn't do it justice
I'm a 34DD. I don't usually wear high necklines because of my bust. It was a nice surprise to wear a fitted dress on the rest of my body that still zipped up nicely over my bust. The pockets are awkward but they blend in well so you don't even notice them. Something was itchy underneath the dress, around the area where the pockets were sewn in. If I wore it again I would wear a slip or spanx just so it didn't irritate my skin. Easy fix for a GREAT dress!

Great Dress!
The top fits nicely, not too snug but very form fitting. The little hook and eye at the top of the zipper is hard to hook without help. I was really pleasantly surprised that this dress actually has two pockets! You can't even see that they are on the dress. The material is really cool, from the hem up a black very slightly fluffy fabric goes from solid to scattered.

Bold Color, Flattering Fit
I was so excited when I put this dress on; the fit is very flattering and the color really pops. I loved the heavy material and how there is room in the skirt area (very comfortable to walk/dance). I sized down to a fitted 4, but I expect a 6 would have worked for me as well. I plan on renting it again sometime!

Pretty but tighter through ribs/bust.
Pretty dress but runs tight/no give through ribs and bust (I have a large rib cage). The hem was also very thick and hung sort of jagged. It was as if it had been shortened and the hemline was too thick. I ended up not wearing it.

Pretty and Comfy
This was a very pretty dress, if a little understated. It fit fairly close to size and I appreciated that it was comfy, with no tight spots or weird scrunched fabric. It was rather "subtle"....In other words, it was slightly conservative (see length on tall model), and it covered everything. So, this is not a WOW YOU dress. It is a very pretty dinner dress where you don't want to show skin, but do want to look elegant and good without wearing the common LBD.

Beautiful color, classy and comfortable!
I went a size smaller because that's all they had at the Chicago store, and so I would guess it is true to size and that a 4 would have been perfect, but it was still comfortable and fit well other than a bit tight around the waist. Length was great and I was complimented on the color and the design. I will say that the band around the bottom of the dress was slightly misshapen but I was probably the only one to notice. Great dress for a formal event or for work!

Great dress; size down
I am usually a 4, but based on other reviewers, I ordered a 4 and a 2 in this dress and I am glad I did. I wore the 4 because it was a little more comfortable, but I could have worn the 2 for a more fitted look.

Really loved the design and feel of the dress!
Size 4 fit just right. Was hoping for a little more structure around the mid-section (didn't come in as close as the model - I'm sure that's my body, not the dress's fault!), but then again, I wore tights and didn't see any lines, so perhaps the fit was right on point. Loved the pockets and that I could wear a regular bra. Overall great dress!

Great color, beautiful dress
My size was unavailable the week of shipping so they could only send the backup, which was too small. The dress fit my waist, but could not zip the 6 around my broad back. The 8 would have been perfect. I loved the bright purple color and material. May try to rent this one again!

Comfortable and beautiful
I loved the thicker material of this dress. It helped smooth out any "flaws" in my figure. And it fit like a glove. It was a very royal purple, with a hint of black at the bottom and on the shoulders. I wore to a work recruiting event and was very comfortable yet classy. Great dress!

Loved it so much I rented it twice!
This rental was my first and probably my favorite RTR rental. I wore it to my husband's 30 year law school reunion and 2 weeks later to his firm's formal dinner. The detailing of this Halston Heritage dress separates it from other dresses and gets attention. The black embroidered detail on a heavier fabric demonstrates its quality. (This dress is also available in cream with black embroidery.) The shoulders are padded just slightly to provide a better balance with hips / flare of the skirt. Loved it!

It fit as expected. The dress was really comfortable, and had pockets too! Some of the reviews had mentioned that the neck line is a little plain, and I agree, so I rented a sparkly necklace and it looked great with it!

Did the job but not my favorite RTR Dress
I wore this dress for a rehearsal dinner. The structure & cut of the dress made the fit slightly off for my body type. It wasn't awful but not my favorite RTR rental.

My moment was made when my now husband saw me in the dress!
I wore this for my wedding rehearsal and I loved it and got a ton of compliments. I'm used to wearing a 12, maybe a 10 if I'm lucky on the fit and with this dress I wore a 10 and felt fabulous in it!

Almost fancy enough for black tie wedding
I loved the color of this dress. It did run large - I wore the 12 instead of the 14 I expected to wear. The top was more fitted, which suited my shape. It was a bit plain without jewelry and could have been dressed up or down. I found it a bit too long on my 5'6" frame - it came to that awkward place just at the knee. All in all, a nice dress in a great color.

unforgettable night with great friends in NYC. Non stressful with RTR's help
Usually an 8 - went with the 6 and it fit like it was tailored to my body. Usually a little self conscious of my butt and hips but this dress was cut perfectly - no need for spanks or an special under garments. Needed to keep the evening within budget and had the shoes in the closet even though I think the look of a black thin strappy shoe looks the best with this dress. Color was great and so nice to stand out from all the black in the room.

The material was substantial, which I liked, but the bottom hem was stiff and hard to iron the wrinkle out that came with the dress when delivered.

Beautifully Made!
Once I got this dress on - it was a hit! The dress definitely ran smaller than I was expecting. I typically wear between a size 10 and 12 and I had to wear the 12. With that, it was still very tight in the bust and torso. I ended up not being able to wear a bra - but it was tight enough I didn't feel uncomfortable with it. Once on - the dress was beautiful and I received many compliments at the event I attended.

Unfortunately, it was a different dress!
This dress is really beautiful, but unfortunately it was too small in the bust area, and it doesn't have any stretch. It fit otherwise, and it made my waist look tiny!. I was sad to have to return it!

Great, well-made dress!
I'm normally a 6 but wore a 4 in this dress, though both fit fairly well. It seems like it runs slightly large in the hips, which is why I chose the smaller size. The bottom part of the dress bustled up in the box and needed to be ironed, but otherwise it arrived in great condition. Love this dress!!

Beautiful dress, but didn't fit very well.
This dress truly is beautiful. The color is stunning and the fabric is interesting and has a great texture. However, I was not a fan of the fit. It looks so fitted and snug on the model, and that's what I wanted. I had read in the reviews that it runs a bit big and I should size down, so I went down to a 2 (I'm normally a 4), but it was still loose. Apparently I should have gone with a 0.

If you love purple, this is the dress for you!
I wore this dress to a work party and dance. The size 14 was perfect! I am busty and the thick material (almost quilt-like) gave me a modest but elegant shape. The color was perfect and the black thread detail on the lower dress was really an interesting touch. I received lots of compliments and the shape of the dress was fun to dance in. My only issue with the dress and it was resolved with a steaming is the hem is very thick. Because of the material and lining, there were places where the hem was folded and pointy, almost like the lining was sewn in too tightly causing the hem to bunch in places.
