I wore this dress to a black tie event and people were stopping me to tell me how gorgeous my dress was. The dress is well made and is very figure flattering. It moves beautifully as you walk. The skirt is long and flows like a train, so be sure your heels are high enough. Several folks stepped on the dress accidentally as I walked past. I would love to have this one permanently in my wardrobe!

This Dress is Perfect

Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I rented this dress for a solo performance with an orchestra and for my ex-boyfriend's prom. It fit like a glove because of the stretch. I've never felt more beautiful than when I was wearing this! I find it worth the $350 to rent. There were a few holes in the chiffon on the bottom, but they aren't noticeable.

The shock on people's face when they realized it was a rental! They were wishing they had done the same thing too!

This was my first time renting and it was a wonderful experience. This dress I loved in the photo and was worried how it would fit when I finally received it. It was easy to put on and fit perfectly. I had tons of compliments the entire night I wore it. People were shocked when i said 'rental'. The RTR customer service was also fantastic as I could figure out what 'stuff' I needed for under the dress with the help of a stylist. Thank you for such a great experience!

Great dress, worn by many

Size worn: S
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I loved this dress but it felt like it had been stretched A LOT, perhaps by previous renters? The straps were way too long, lacked elasticity, and it definitely didn't cling tightly mid thigh. Nonetheless, I loved wearing it, and loved the way it moves when you walk.

I wear a size 6...and ordered small and medium. Medium (size6-8) fit perfectly. Got a ton of compliments all evening. Only negative is that the small arrived w/alarge hole on the chiffon but since i didnt wear it..it didnt matter. All and all RTR was a great experience and this was an absolutely beautiful dress.

Absolute winner!

Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I chose this dress over the Versace I rented for my friend's wedding. It was black tie in DC, so I wanted to do a black gown. I chose this one because it was a little sexier, and the fit was great. The straps are long on top, which makes the dress pretty revealing. I'm smaller chested, so it was flattering on me, but beware of showing too much. I didn't need any shapewear underneath, it was really flattering by itself.
