I loved this dress. I got a lot of compliments and felt so pretty!
The top of the dress is a bit tighter so that's why I opted for the larger size. The fabric was soft and stretchy and I felt very comfortable in it.

Subtle standout
Elegant, classic silhouette. Beautiful color on high quality fabric. Had to suck it in most of the night, but it was the perfect choice for an outdoor wedding in September!

Hugs you in all the right ways!
I got SO many compliments on this dress and I can't wait to rent this dress again. Color is a beautiful lavender and it is very fitted. I wore a bra because I don't have much of a bust but you don't really need to if you do because it's a thick material and fitted. Slit is high, but not too high since the dress is long and it's not low cut. I loved this and it stretched with you as you danced and sat to eat. Highly recommend!

Cute dress and beautiful color
Wore this dress with a duster coat to a January wedding reception. It was very pretty! I wasn't blown away by it, but it worked out well. Glad I'm a pro member because it ripped a little while dancing.

Pretty, but a little plain!
Color is pretty! The 0 was a bit snug, but the size 2 was too large up top! The dress, for the most part, is true to size.

Would definitely rent again!
The color was a beautiful taupe-ish lilac. Fit perfectly in most places, but a little big in some like the hips (nothing to deter me from wearing it). Super flattering in all the right places- revived lots of compliments.

Nice dress but allows little movement
The dress originally fit great. I opted for the smaller size (4) and it was comfortable and flattering. However, on my way to the wedding I took one step up the stairs and the slit ripped :( it tore about 10-15 stitches and I was uncomfortable the rest of the night. I would suggest sizing up even if it feels like it's hugging all the right places, especially if you have larger legs.

Perfect dress
This dress was awesome. It fit me perfectly. I was nervous about the sizing because it was my first time using RTR but after reading every single review I felt confident that it would fit and it did! Loved the length of the dress and the color (light purple). The slit was elegant but sexy. I wore a seamless thong but I still felt like you could see the outline of them (oh well!). This has been my favorite dress I've worn to a wedding ever!

Loved this dress for a summer wedding!
Wore this dress to a wedding and rented it again a month later for another wedding! Loved the color and fit and got tons of compliments on it! The slit in the dress made it really comfortable to dance around in and the structured top kept the whole dress in place.

Lilac color is perfect for a spring wedding!
Fit perfectly and showed off the curves. The slit is a bit high, so I'd be careful of your positioning when sitting down!

The color of the dress made me stand out both in photos and at the wedding!
the slit is very high, but in a class way because the dress provides cleavage coverage and is longer (mid calf for me). I'm 5'3, 128 pounds and between 4-6 in dresses. The size 4 fit perfectly. Got a lot of compliments on the unique color and flattering hour-glass shape. It does have a bit of a corset in the top till mid-waist, so if you have larger love handles (no shame!), it may make them pop out a bit.

Love this dress
This dress is great. The material is stretchy yet form fitting and the slit is ultra sexy. I received compliments all night. I felt it ran a little big so you may need to go down a size. I am normally a 0 and I defiantly had room in certain areas. Also to me the color was more of a taupe than the light purple it looks like in all the photos. Overall extremely pleased with this rental!

Form-fitting
The dress is structured so your waist will be defined, but SO movable and comfortable. The material doesn't wrinkle, and for those with sensitive skin - you won't have any issues :)

Nice but not one of my faves
This dress fit pretty true to size but was verrrry form-fitting. For some reason I had thought from other reviews that it was going to be the scuba material but it wasn't, so it didn't hide any flaws. Spanx recommended! With the spanx, I felt a bit more comfortable but it wasn't my ideal fit. The color was also a little more drab than I expected but still pretty.

Beautiful dress, just too big on me !
I wish I could have worn this, I usually fit in a 6 no problem, but it was so big on my top half that I was swimming in it. Next time I'll get the 4!

I rented this dress for my brothers wedding and it was the perfect dress for the perfect night
This dress had the right amount of tightness that hugged the body without being uncomfortable. It was easy to move, walk, dance, and sit down in all night. I have a very small bust, and am pretty tall (5' 10") so it was a perfect style of dress for me. The high slit also added a little sexiness to the class of this dress. I got compliments all night and would definitely recommend for anyone with a similar body type as me.

Great Service! Came a day early, fit like it was made for me and compliments allllll night long!
I wear a street size 8-10, and the 8 fit like a glove. It's a thicker fabric so it hides all the little lumps and bumps. Being strapless, the boning helped the structure along with the anti slip grip (no worries about a slip or pop out!) I felt a million bucks!

Perfectly purple !
This dress couldn't have been more perfect for the summer wedding I attended. If you're a fan of midi length dresses, this is the fit for you. The strapless dress stayed up all night and I got lots of kind words about the lilac shade. I am a little bit on the shorter side, but the slit in the dress made it all the more better. The fabric is a good thickness, yet didn't make me overly warm in the sun. I appreciated the boning in the bodice. I would DEFINITELY rent again!!

I loved this dress so much! Wore it for a wedding this summer. I ordered a size 4 and 2. The size 3 fit just a little bit better. The color was perfect and it was so comfortable!

Hi! We have the same size bust, so I was wondering if this dress has the type of material that would make my chest sag? Did you wear a bra or was a bra not needed?

Everyone loved the color, it's unique but simple and streamlined. Strapless bra friendly but can't wear anything else underneath (shows all lines).

Classy, sexy and comfortable!
I absolutely loved this dress!! I rented a size 4 and a size 6 and stuck with the 6. I typically wear size 6/8 jeans and I have a larger rear end, and typically wear medium tops (I have smaller breasts). and it fit wonderfully. If you are more of a pear shaped body it's perfect for you! There was also room on the top if you had bigger breasts as well. It was SUPER comfortable and didn't rise up or anything. I wore it to a work Christmas party which was formal attire and got so many compliments. I am almost tempted to buy it!! ;) I highly recommend it to anybody!! The only small thing I would say is it is a tiny snug on the tummy area, so if you are self concious about your stomach, it may be iffy for you. But other than that it's an amazing dress and I would definitely rent it again!

The dress arrived promptly and was packaged nicely. Made for an easy return.
The dress was a little long for someone that is 5'2. Color was lighter than the website portrayed.

Runs small, but not THAT small
I saw reviews that said to rent two sizes down, so I did. Luckily my back-up was only one size down because that's what I wore. Pics don't do the color justice. Gorgeous & great for bigger busted peeps.

GREAT color and fit, tons of compliments!
So far I've been very successful in RTR sz 4. For this dress I was feeling ambitious and ordered the 2 as my back up, I potentially could have worn it but the 4 was perfect. The fabric was great on my curves and had just enough stretch to it, I was very comfortable. I received a ton of compliments!!! I would recommend this dress to women with curves, it was very flattering and even though I was a little self conscious of my stomach (I always am), I felt very confident! I went simple on the jewelry and paired it with rose gold heels.
