Great for pregnant belly!

I really liked this dress. It's simple but elegant. Draped really well over my 4 month pregnant belly. I felt comfortable but also pretty. Great dress.

Dress is very flattering, especially if you have assets up top! The faux wraps hides problem areas!

Great empire waist and faux wrap that hides any problem areas. Very comfortable and easy to wear, lots of compliments, and my husband couldn't take his eyes off me. A great dress for a fun, dressy occasion, I am usually a 2x or 18/20, which is what I ordered, but it was slightly too big. I ended up wearing the 14/16, which fit perfectly - form fitting in the right places (up top) and loose in the skirt for a very flattering empire-waist look. I wear a 40G bra and the stretchy fabric accommodated without feeling too revealing.

back up dress

This was sent to my mom after her first dress did not work out. First the people with the company are amazing and did all they could to help us and make sure my mom felt gorgeous! She loved this dress though it was extremely flattering and comfortable! The wrap part of the dress hides any flaws! She had another dress that fit the occasion better but wants to rent this next year for the event!

Not dressy enough

I ordered 4 dresses in varying sizes. This was my first time using RTR so I wasn't sure what to expect. customer service was amazing! I got my first dress (not this one) on a Friday for a gala on Saturday evening. It arrived early afternoon but did not fit. So, I called customer service and they promptly helped me find 3 more dresses in a range of sizes because I was so unsure after my first pick was so large. Customer services promised I would have them by noon Saturday morning. I was very skeptical. I got a package at 9am! This dress was one of the three alternatives. The dress length was perfect (I am 5'8) and the martial makes this dress incredibly comfortable. It's stretchy so it's very forgiving and overall it was very flattering. However my husband and I were attending a gala and he was in a tux. The dress was not dressy enough for the event. I tried to dress it up by changing the neckline to off-the-shoulder sweetheart neckline, and that dressed it up some, and maybe if I had a statement necklace I could've made it work, but time was not on my side. I think, though, it came down to the material. I'd probably order this dress again but for something less formal.

For those gals that is for comfortable formal attire

This dress is very easy to put on and is very no nonsense, the cut is a bit low so I wore a plain black sports bra under it to look like a camisole. It's very loose as well which is good if you have a tummy like I do !

So many compliments!

The dress fit perfectly and had just the right amount of cleavage. It's a classic look and I received so many compliments. Was comfortable and easy to move in on the dance floor! Would definitely rent again.

Looking and feeling great while producing a black-tie event allowed me to relax and enjoy the party!

The dress is a classic and looked and felt great. Slightly too large for me, but the neckline was perfect. I would rent this one again and recommended RTR to several women at the event.

lovely dress but did not wear

I must say that this dress is very comfortable! I love the way it accentuated my top half and how the fabric stretched. my only complaint is that the dress was way too short even with sandals.

Not worn, but nice!

The dress actually fit ok, I think my overall issue was with the length. I am 5'6 and it barely hit my ankles so that just made it ill-fitting. Material is great though, very breathable, especially nice in the summer time! I would say though that the dress is definitely made for a curvy body, and someone that is full chested.

Stylist Review!

I LOVED this gown! I wore it to a company full of other RTR styles and I still got a million compliments. The material is very stretchy, which is also why there are only two sizes, so it will fit a pretty wide range of figures. The cut is extremely flattering and can work for both black tie or less formal events. The length was a little shorter than I'd like. I'm 5'4" and wore maybe 2" heels and I could have worn the longer length. But that is, literally, my only critique. I loved everything about wearing this and how it made me feel. I highly recommend it!

Comfortable and classic, easily dressed up or down.

I'm usually between a 14 and a 16, depending on the brand, and the 14W fit perfectly. I felt like I was wearing comfortable pajamas. For me, the length was perfect - I'm 5'3" and wore a 1 3/4" heel, and the hem hit just above the ground - anything taller may have looked strange. If you're taller, you could probably get away with wearing nice flats. The only possible con is that it is a very low neckline, and it kept shifting a bit when I would move, but this could be fixed with tape if needed.

Beautiful black tie wedding reception.

The dress fit great! If anything, I am short and it was a hair too long. This was my first time renting and I will definitely do it again. This dress was beautiful, comfortable and I felt amazing in it! I wish I had a photo with a great shot of the dress but unfortunately, I don't.

LOVED this dress

This dress is so comfortable and classy at the same time. Lots of stretch so plenty of room in the 14. I'm usually a 14 in Igigi dresses which is why I picked this dress, because I knew it would fit. It is definitely short. I'm 5'4" and wore a 2 1/2 inch heel and it just hit the top of my foot, but it was great that I wasn't tripping over it all night. I wore it with the Badly Mischka Crystal Cluster necklace and got so many compliments on my overall look. Only caution is there is lots of cleavage but it can be adjusted.

Great dress for an evening out!

The fit was perfect, I am very busty and often have trouble finding dresses that aren't too low cut but still fit my waist. I was prepared to have issues with the neckline, but it was very flattering and tastefully low without revealing too much. I will say the dress is too short for heels...I had to wear flats. I wish it came in a "long". If the hemline was a little longer for tall girls I'd give it a perfect review, cuz I love me some heels and it sucked to wear flats.

So comfortable!

I was expecting a different dress so I was surprised that this one showed up. It's extremely simple (basic almost) so I was glad I had some bling ordered. It showed off some good cleavage and was so comfortable. I only wish it was a bit longer. Once I had on kitten heels, it was off the ground. Grateful that RTR sent it to me!

Simple & elegant even at 9 months pregnant!

Wore this for a formal awards dinner and it fit wonderfully and was very comfortable! I was 39.5 weeks pregnant and needed something with a bit of stretch and it was perfect!

Very Comfortable to Wear!

I'm a boudoir and contemporary glamour portrait photographer near Harrisburg, PA, and for each client I provide a dress from RTR to wear as one of their outfits--I haven't been disappointed once in over the 1 1/2 years since I started doing this. My client in this photo is 67 and wanted to wear something that she would be comfortable posing in--the size 14 dress' fabric had just the right amount of stretch and really gave her curves. I paired the dress with the Revealing Choker Necklace, which is the same necklace the RTR model is wearing. http://shannonhemauerphotography.com/

Cozy!

I rented this for a work outing. It's so versatile! I wore it out to drinks after my event! The fabric is so comfy and has a lot of stretch to it. This dress is easily dressed up or down depending on how you accessorize. The V neck does not dip too low at all, which is good for us bustier ladies.

The comfort and quality of the material was fantastic.

I waited until the last minute to order a dress, so my first picks were not available. A backup size wasn't available in this style, but I read the reviews, and decided to go for it. I'm short with a large bust, but I wasn't disappointed with the classic, comfortable, and beautiful dress. The length was perfect for my 5'1 frame with 3 inch heels. Received many compliments and felt beautiful.

Did not wear

I can see why this dress gets good reviews - it has a comfortably weighted drape and stretches and flows nicely. I wasn't sure it'd be the right fit for me, and it ended up being too large in the waist. There's a fair amount of material at the waist; I think it would be fine if it fit more closely, but as it was it added bulk. The hips fit just fine (I have very wide hips), as did the bust. But overall, I would have been better off going down a size (were it available).

I didn't end up wearing this.

This fit me perfectly - I tried a 14 and am usually a 14 or 16. It was very comfortable and would be an excellent safe choice. I ended up going with something more showy for a black tie wedding. If the other style hadn't come though, I would have been very happy with this dress.
