Spring wedding rental
the dress is a muted lavender color, great for a spring event! I'm on the shorter side but the length was perfect however, when I was sitting the slit was a bit high on the thigh (I also wore a pashmina wrap so I was able to cover up and remain appropriate. The dress does have boning for additional support which was very helpful considering the dress does run a bit large. I rented a size 0 & 2, and ended up with the 0 and even that was a bit big and required some pulling up during the evening. Overall I wasn't dissatisfied with this dress but it wasn't my favorite rental.

Perfect dress! Loved the color!
This dress, color, and fit were all perfect! Clean lines, not too tight yet still form fitting and a perfect length for a wedding. There is boning in the bust, which I didn't realize before purchasing, but it helps the dress maintain its shape and stay upright. The slit add the perfect touch of sexy without going over the top. I loved this dress and was so sad to send it back. Would totally rent again!

The dress was very fitting and comfortable
Dress was as described, it may have been a bit long on me but i'm not that tall to begin with. Otherwise no complaints! Very cute dress!

Never felt prettier
I'm in the middle of weight loss and the sizing/fit was a little hard to determine. Even with that the dress looked amazing and elicited a ton of compliments all night. It felt comfortable and functional which is a huge win for me. I will definitely use RTR again for all of my events!

Simple and elegant
I wore this to a gala. The dress fits well and does not wrinkle. This is not a color I would normally pick, but the color worked well for the spring event/theme.

Amazing Dress
I was so excited for this dress to come in and it definitely did not let down! I wore this for my sorority's formal, and it was the perfect style! Probably would be great to wear to a wedding too! The color was gorgeous and it fit perfectly! You can't really hide anything when wearing this though, so make sure you choose a size that really is going to flatter you. I would recommend it to anyone!

TONS OF COMPLIMENTS!
I absolutely loved this dress! The fit was true to size and the color was amazing...perfect for a spring event! I received countless compliments and would definitely rent again! The slit was a bit high, so keep that in mind when renting for specific events.

It didn't fit me :( But it fit beautifully on my roommate!
I chose this dress for my 25th birthday! I got the 6 and 8 for a backup but it runs really large especially in the bust area. I should've gotten the 2 and 4. On the bright side, it fit my roommate perfectly!! She loved it and this shade of purple compliments our skin! There's a yellow version of this that I want to try for a summer wedding. (I'll get the right sizes this time haha)

VERY SOFT AND EYE CATCHING
The length makes it classy and formal even though it's a strapless. Best w/ a tan. I didn't wear a bra with it. Probably better with neutral heels than the black ones I wore, but my husband wore dark colors and I was trying to tie it in.

Chicago Winter Wedding
This dress was perfect for the wedding that I attended! Sexy and form fitting but, not too over the top. I usually wear a size 4 but, it was a little loose in the waist area and a little too big in the bust area. Glad that I sized down for a 2 rather than sizing up as suggested. This was my first rental and I'll definitely be renting from here again!

LOVED THIS DRESS!!!!
I'm a short girl so the dress was a little long than I would've liked it but I still felt sexy! It was a right in all the right places and totally showed off my curves. Got compliments all night and it was SO comfy!! For sure simple but the cut and color makes up for it.

Received many compliments, it was a show stopper!
Definitely made for a taller individual... I'm 5'8" and it hit me perfectly, any shorter and it would have been too long. Great dress, many compliments!

Great Dress for a Outside Wedding.
Dress was a great choice and got lots of compliments. Fit is great and I did not have any problems with the dress staying up. The slit was a little higher than I anticipated but still was ok for a wedding. Color is pretty close to picture.

Shipping time was so quick and return process was so easy!
This dress was great, however the slit in the dress go up farther than it looks like it does in pictures and I have wide hips, so the slit stays open most of the time which could be seen as a bit inappropriate if I was going somewhere more professional and formal.

I got so many compliments lades
This dress mad me feel sexy, confident, and classy. The dress fit amazing, I was expecting myself to be a 4 and I ended up a 2. However, for all you smaller chested women out there it may run a bit larger in the chest, but not to the point where it is uncomfortable.

Perfect dress
This dress was beautiful and very form fitting. The slit gave it that extra special detail plus the color was perfect for a night time wedding. Would say if you are larger on the top would try a size bigger due to dress being tight. But overall was very pleased with my first time purchase on RTR.

Perfect POP of Color
This dress was perfect for an outdoor fall wedding! This is my second RTR event and I am completely satisfied. It hugged me in all the right places. The slit was just enough to pull the whole look together. Wore a 4 and I'm about 5'6" 130-135lbs!

Party on!
This was my first RTR and I was so happy with it! This dress fit like a glove and was stretchy so I was able to enjoy the cookie table and dance all night! The only reason I didn't give 5 stars was because the mid section of the dress was a little uncomfortable with the wires. The length was perfect for a Fall wedding and the leg slit was just enough sexy!

RTR Stylist Review!
Love this subtle, sexy style with its soft lavender color. Running true to size, we recommend going one size up for back up. This dress works best for A to C cup sizes because it is fitted at the bust. Bust area does have boning in it. The style is very fitted in the waist and hips and hugs your body nicely. The stretchy fabric allows for a comfortable fit throughout your midsection. Curvier women with fuller hips should consider sizing up. At 5'8", the dress hit slightly below my knees. This style is great to wear to a wedding or a semi-formal event. Pair with a neutral heel and a statement necklace.

Perfect Combo of Comfort & Classy
This dress was AWESOME! The fabric was lightweight and so soft. The cut was perfect for a formal look, I loved that it was longer with a slit, it was really classy. The fit was super true-to-size. Would definitely recommend this dress!
