Felt like Kate Middleton!

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress is incredible. Beautiful, rich green/blue color... perfect length (with 3.5 inch heels)... gorgeous lace... amazing shape. I wore with the Oscar earrings that are on the model (can't see them very well in the photo and because of my dark hair, but they were awesome, too!) Classy, timeless dress. Be aware that this dress does run small, especially in the teenie-tiny waist. If I was to rent again, I would likely go with a size up.

The helpful staff.

Size worn: NONE
Overall fit: Small

This is a stunning dress that is luxurious and well made. The problem is the waist is tiny and is hard to close on your rib cage. The 2R fit perfectly everywhere but I could not zip the final two inches. I will try the 4R and 6R next time. (I am normally a 2R) The color is intense and memorable. There was also one small tear on the back lace bodice, so be sure to check the dress carefully. Will try again.

Amazing color!

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was my first RTR rental, I only ordered one size so I was nervous about the length and fit. The length was perfect, just slightly touching the floor with 120mm heels. The waist is very fitted, but I was still able to dance/sit just fine. Overall this dress was incredible, the color is perfect for blondes! My only con is the dress arrived extremely wrinkled!! My boyfriend had to send it out to get steamed prior to the event which added stress.

GORGEOUS dress!!!

Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Runs pretty much true to size. Could have worn either the 6 or the 8, but the tighter fitting looked better. Only issue is the clasp at the neck came undone a lot. My boyfriend got very sick of buttoning it for me.

Didn't wear it.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small

The waist on this dress is high. Also, the shoulders are extremely narrow. So, if you've got athletic shoulders or arms this dress may not work for you.

color was beautiful + unique at a black tie graduation.

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
TEENY, TINY fit. i wore the 2R and am usually a true 0. The fabric has no stretch/give whatsoever and the chest/rib/waist/shoulder areas are very narrow - the dress JUST fit me. I wish i had the 2L since I wanted to wear higher heels. The 2R was SLIGHTLY too short in my 3.5 inch heels (i'm 5'6"), but it wasn't terribly noticeable. dress was gorgeous - one of my favorite rentals ever.

Amazing dress, got compliments all night!

Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
RTR saved the day by sending me this dress super last minute after the size of the dress I ordered wasn't available. It was perfect. I'm 5'7'' and with 3-inch heels, the dress was a perfect length. It is very fitted around the waist, but I could still sit, eat and dance comfortably.

I am usually a size 0 in most dresses, so i rented the smallest size, the 2R. It fit perfectly. I am 5'3 and wore 4" heels and the length was great. i would highly recommend this dress!

I felt Kate Middleton-esque.

Size worn: 12R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I have a weird body with a large rib cage and am top heavy so the top was a bit loose because of the open back but the rest of the dress fit perfectly. The bride even stopped me and said "you look hot!"

This dress was gorgeous!!

Size worn: 6L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This fit just right, but I will say that it could have been a little longer. I'm 5'9 and thought it could have been a inch longer. I wore flat shoes, so it wasn't an issue. Also, it did smell a little around the top, so I had to febreeze it which fixed that. Overall, the dress was great.

LOVE this dress

Size worn: 4L
Rented for: Formal Affair
Great dress very small in the waist but it made for a pretty shape. I am 5 5 and wore 4 inch heels and the 4L fit perfectly. Also RTR has the most amazing customer service, would absolutely rent this dress again!

Matronly

Size worn: NONE
Rented for: Party
I'm a curvy size 6, and I sized up as recommended. The dress fit, but the high neckline looked strange. It sort of made me look matronly. I ended up wearing my backup dress instead.

Small, short and stiff.

Size worn: 6L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress ran very small, I normally wear a size 4 and even the 6 was snug. Recommend a size up from your regular especially if you're busty. I'm not and it was still tight. Also, the tall is not very long. It was way to short for me even if I had worn flats. Would not recommend if over 5'8". The fabric has zero stretch as well so it's really a dress that needs to be tailored to your body.

pretty fabric, a little short

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I didn't wear this dress for a couple reasons: I'm 5'6.5" and the 6R was too short unless I wanted to wear flats (note that in the photo, I'm barefoot), and while the fabric is lovely, it's pretty bright and solid, plus, as an hourglass, I would say that it's better suited for straighter and narrower types.

Felt fantastic and classy

Size worn: 8R
Rented for: Wedding
The 8R fit perfectly. I wore it with flats though because it was the perfect length for my height. I'm a full B cup and was able to do without a bra because of the open back. It was a wedding in Miami and the fabric felt light, didn't feel hot at all the entire day/evening. Only complaint was that the top clasps would come undone sometimes while I was dancing. Had to ask people to re-do it for me. Still, felt incredible in it and would absolutely rent it again.

Definitely runs large. RTR didn't have a 2 available, so I had to make the 4 fit. Complements all night long!

Compliments galore - rent it!

Size worn: 6L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Returning it to RTR was difficult as I absolutely loved this dress. I wore it for my senior prom and received many, many compliments. It was comfortable, classic, and exactly my style. When I went to place the order they didn't have my usual size available so I took a risky move and ordered the size 6. Though it was a little roomy in the waist, it fit perfectly everywhere else and I'm really glad I sized up - it made it much more comfortable to dance in. I'm 5'8" and I paired the dress with 3", nude pumps which left the dress hanging just above the ground - perfect for pictures and moving around. I would absolutely recommend this dress!

This dress is classic yet fashion forward- absolutely loved it!

Size worn: 2L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wore this dress to a charity gala and it was perfect! The waist is very form fitting but that adds a lot to the silhouette as this dress is more covered-up than most. The low back and is the most "wow" part not pictured here and you need a backless bra. The lace is a turquoise/green and is a simply stunning color. I was so sad to return this dress!
