Ehhh... Not so much

Did not end up wearing this dress. I am comfortable saying it looks better on the model. The dress was pretty but a little more poofy and longer than I imagined. The shape and length were not ideal for my body type and the overall fit was just a little off in my opinion. Hey ya win some ya lose some!

A very classy dress

Wore this to a charity luncheon. I thought it was right on the mark for that. It's subdued but fun to look at, the length is appropriately longer, and the material is substantial. I wore my normal size 0 - the waist was a but bigger than I would have liked, but because of the overall fit/style it didn't look bad.

Customer service!

Loved this dress but unfortunately it was too tight in my chest! I am a 36DD and they were suffocating! I was really sad because the dress was absolutely gorgeous!

Beautiful dress just a little big

This dress is such a gorgeous color and very comfortable. I could pinch about an extra inch of fabric around my waist so I added the belt to show off my figure a bit more.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

The color was stunning. I was hoping to be more wowed with the dress.

The dress fit well there were spots inside the lining that irritated my skin. The black trim around the bottom didn't lay flat and puckered out. It was almost like the dress has been worn too many times. It wasn't noticeable to other people , but it was noticeable to me. Both sizes had this problem. I think they need to inspect dresses better before sending out.

Runs very small

I tropically wear an 8 and occasionally a 10. I wore the 10, but barely and really needed a 12. That said, love the color and it's easy to dress this up with jewelry and heels or throw over a denim jacket and dress it down. I may reorder in the larger size

The dress runs true to size and will flatter any figure. Pockets are hidden so they aren't noticeable but great to have Ina dress. Perfect and comfortable style!

Beautiful color, great material and flattering fit

The color photographs a little blue, but it's much more purple in person. The fit would be very flattering on any body type. And it has pockets! Would definitely rent this one again.

Such an easy experience. Loved the dress for my conference gala. Received lots of compliments.

Purple stands out in a good way. The mid section flattens your pooch if you have one. I am 5'3 and heels are necessary to avoid looking short!

Just steam or flat iron the hem!!

So listen to my words. The hem has a thick piece of material to help keep the form of the A-line. When you get the box and try it on - it will look wonky. DO NOT PANIC. I used my daughter's Chi and flat ironed it - BAM. The dress is a wee bit snug in the chest and I am, well, only endowed when I wear my Victoria Secret pieces (and I refuse to NOT wear them). So keep that in mind. Loved the dress.

Loved the feel, color and black pattern. I thought the hem seemed a little off (didn't feel straight). Overall would recommend the dress. I really liked the fit. Rented via unlimited and wore to work.

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!

Wonderful fit

I wore this to the ballet. Both sizes 8&10 fit. I opted for the 10 because it was more comfortable when I sat. I loved the richness of the material. I would recommend it to anyone.

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!

Love this dress!

I usually wear between a 4 and a 6 and needed to go with the 6 for this because of the bust. Love the little front pockets. Super comfortable and would be appropriate for either a super formal party or a more causal work gathering.

Just didn't quite fit right

The twelve fit everywhere but my rib cage and the fourteen fit nowhere but my rib cage. It worked for the occasion just not as stunning as I was expecting. It still looked good but the bottom hem was stiff and weird. It kept bunching the bottom making the dress look unpressed. If the fit had been better I could have given it 5 stars.

Classy and flirty

Beautiful dress and color. Hem is very thick so appears to buckle a little. I think it's supposed to do that? Fit great through waist - very fitted in bodice so could have used a little more room but was fine.

Cute Enough

I received this dress as part of a Fit Pack. The dress is adorable, but the size they sent was big on me. Thus, I looked a little like I was playing dress up. I wouldn't personally rent this, but I think in the right size, on the right girl, this is a classy cute number.

Hi, In a few of the photos of this Halson Heritage dress, the seams seem to be bunching, as if it needed to be better sewn and ironed. Did it seem to be bunching at the sticking when you saw it?

Great color

I love this dress and wish it worked out for me. I rented the size 2 but it was too big. I suggest ordering 1-2 sizes down if you have a similar body type. The length was a little long but with a great heel I could've pulled it off.

Wasn't tailored enough

I rented for my brother's wedding, ordered 4 and 6....the 4 was better, but around the waste it was just too loose and not very tailored. the material i was not that crazy about either. it's cute, but not formal beautiful. it would be best for a semi casual event, not for a wedding or black tie. i didn't wear it to the wedding but it was just ok.

This dress was perfect for an early November wedding!

The fabric was the perfect weight for a chilly fall wedding and the color was beautiful. It is a very vibrant purple in person and I loved the detail on the shoulders. I paired it with come black stockings and heeled booties and it was great! I rented a 0 & 2 and ended up wearing the 0. There was still a little bit of room, but it wasn't too big. It was nice wiggle room to eat tons of food at the reception! I got tons of compliments all night and everyone loved the dress :) So sad to send it back!!

Loved this dress! The color really stood out in a sea of black dresses!

This dress is beautiful! The color is even more amazing in person. It definitely runs a bit large. I am usually a 4 or 6 in dresses and the 4 was just the tiniest bit big. The fabric of the dress is thicker (perfect for fall or winter events) so it actually looks better the snugger it is.

I got great compliments on the color!

Fit great, I was actually able to wear a size smaller than normal. The only "complaint" (and it wasn't that big of a deal) was toward the end of the night, I start to get a red irritation near my armpit from the material rubbing. Again, it wasn't painful enough to annoy me, but I could see it getting brighter throughout the night.

Good for a fall evening wedding but not spectacular

This runs big, especially if you aren't large on top. I ordered the 6 and the 4. The 6 was miles too big and the 4 was definitely baggy. I cinched the waist with a skinny black belt and that helped some, but I definitely needed a size 2! My boyfriend thought it looked fine though. The material is fairly thick, which is nice when it's a bit chilly out.

Love this dress! Rich color, full knee length skirt, classic!

Loved this dress, the material, the rich purple color, the full skirt...I am a tall girl, and it was still just slightly above the knee for me. Love the subtle design at the bottom. The fit was just a SMIDGE large in the middle, but I much prefer that over too small, so I was fine with it. Perfect as a wedding guest dress!

Beautiful dress that makes you stand out in a sea of black

I wore this to my husbands corporate holiday party and I loved it. One of my girlfriends said she loved that I was wearing a color that wasn't too bright but stood out. It's a very structured dress and beautiful fabric. I usually wear a 4 because of my chest but I definitely should have gotten a 2 as my back-up, my husband said it was a little big on me. The dress hit me right above me knee but for an office part it was appropriate.

Goregous fabric Great Fit

Rented for a Gala that was cocktail attire. Dress runs a bit big - normally a 6. Got 4 and 6. Wore the 4. Compliments all night long. Fabric is very rich and color is beautiful. Very fitted across chest. If you have large chest this might not be the best dress for your figure. But if you are curvy on the bottom this dress would definitely work as the bottom is in a bell shape. It was so comfortable all night and loved the pockets.

Very pretty, unique dress!

This dress is high quality. The fit was a bit big around the waist and hips, and flared a lot more than I had hoped. I rented this for a holiday party with a mostly older (60+) crowd so it wasn't a big deal. Love it though!

Great color.

This dress definitely runs large. It's a nice, structured dress with thick fabric. Generally, it's quiet flattering, though the bottom is a bit too structured, making it stick out like a Jetson's dress (as others have mentioned). It was a great last minute substitution for me. Thanks RTR!

This dress is even better in person!

This dress run large on me for some reason. Normally I am between a 4 and a 6, but I would have fit best in a 2. The 4 was OK with a belt that I added, but it did bunch up at the waist. The dress certainly wasn't going to go anywhere, but if I hadn't been wearing a coat the size would have been noticeable. This dress is a great length for me at 5'8", hitting right at my knee, similar to the model. It is also fully lined, which meant no under layers to pull down and made the dress warmer once the temperature dipped into the 50s that night. This dress even has small pockets in front, but they aren't deep enough to hold anything, just look cute. No ironing needed out of the box. I loved this dress much more in person than in the pictures after I rented it (options were limited b/c of short notice). Great dress.
