Best dress I've ever rented!

This dress was stunning. I felt like an emerald princess the entire night! Fit was true to size and so flattering. Absolutely loved this dress, the cut was just short enough. This is the first rental I really really did not want to return!

Not mean't for a summer outdoors wedding

I found this dress to run rather big, and it is made of very thick material. Def not made for a summer out doors wedding. Did not get to wear

Silhouette wasn't flattering, although it's a nice idea!

I liked the concept from the photos but I didn't like how this dress looked on. I have a large rib cage and this felt too snug. Also I felt that it was a little too low cut to be an proper work event dress. The color is gorgeous though. The draping... wasn't all that flattering. I think this boxy shape requires someone with a more defined waist aka not me.

Holy slit!!

This slit is wayyyyyy too high on me. I may try to wear with opaque tights but otherwise it'd be indecent.

Cut, fabric, color is amazing. Dress seemed more worn than expected, but great fit.

Fun party dress in a beautiful color

Wore this for a rehearsal dinner / wedding welcome party. The color is beautiful and really nice fabric. I typically wear a size 2 and the top was a bit big but besides that fit was great!

To my surprise, RTR sent my backup dress! I felt AMAZING in this dress!

Gorgeous color. Dress runs a little small. Generally wear size 4, but had to go with 6. Tons of compliments!

RTR Team Review

Completely obsessed with this drape slit! Running true to size, we recommend sizing up for backup. Although the fabric has no stretch, this piece works great for any cup size with no bra to be necessary. It is fitted throughout the waist then flares into a full skirt, allowing for a comfortable amount of room for full hips. The hemline hit me just at knee length. Pair with tan heels and gold jewelry! Pair with black heels to your night time event!

Pre-opening party my amazing fiance's newest restaurant: TenPenh in Tyson's. most compliments ever!

Fit like a dream! athletic build, rather busty. draped perfectly, showed off leg. The jade color was incredible. i felt like a (57 year old) princess. Best fit ever. The most $$ dress i have rented - wish i had a follow up party so i could have gotten two uses from it. Absolutely loved this dress.

Gorgeous shade of green

Love this style; however, I suspect the length was shortened by dry cleaning as it was REALLY short. I'm only 5'6" and the slit and opening was too high and wide to wear. If you are shorter or don't mind flashing a lot of leg, this could work.

Incredibly flattering. Would be risque on someone taller.

SO flattering - the slit would be quite high on someone much taller than me (5'2"). The fabric is gorgeous and very high quality.

Pretty but I am 5'6 and it was too short.

If you are younger and have great legs, this is the dress for you! It wasn't appropriate for me in terms of length but I loved everyhing else about it.

Demure forest green dress

LOVED the fit of this dress. I am on the smaller side of a size 6, and there was some room in the waist which allowed me to sit, eat, and drink as much as I wanted all night. So comfortable and easy to wear.

Fit perfectly, solid rental

You can go without a bra if you want, and the material is thick and good quality. Makes your waist look small. The slit us pretty high, so just be confident! Pretty color, easy to move in, lots of compliments.

Great dress, gorgeous color!

I loved this dress -- definitely low cut and the slit on the side goes up very high so be warned. It's well-constructed and I absolutely love the color. I'm usually a 4 or a 6 and the 6 fit like a glove. I dressed it down with a cardigan, black tights and boots for a film screening and after party in NYC.

Felt like a Million Bucks!

This dress was absolutely amazing! I received this dress from RTR, as my original pick was unavailable because the prior renter returned it late. RTR opened up the selection of dresses for my last minute scramble to find a new dress pick. It would have been out of my dress rental budget otherwise. It fit great. The material is thick and it shapes your body nicely. My midsection is where I hold my fat and you could not tell in this dress. If you are bustier, you will have more cleavage than what is pictured in the model photo. You can tell this dress is well made. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. It's worth the splurge! At the time of this photo I am 5'4", 36D, athletic build with some winter fluff, 157lbs, size 8-10 in dresses.

Got so many complements. Best dressed!

Love love love! Fit like a glove and was so comfortable. Sexy but still classy. My favorite dress I have rented from RTR yet!! Would recommend for a fall or winter wedding or any formal event!

Tried this out for a wedding.

SHORT! I couldn't bend over without showing everyone more than they bargained for. Wanted to love it, was made of nice thick material, but couldn't get over how short it was. Might be better with tights?

I loved wearing the dress! It is very classy and stylish.

The fit is very flattering but the leg does show a decent amount. So, if you are not comfortable showing some skin, this may not be the dress for you. Overall, perfect for a rehearsal dinner that I went to.
