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!

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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!

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!

Seriously felt like a queen! Fit like a glove and showed off all of my curves. I received so many compliments! I wore it with a leather jacket and a beaded purse to give it some pizzaz. So happy with my choice to rent!

Gorgeous color!
My bust isn't very large but I have a broader ribcage and felt like the sizing was pretty tight. I wish I selected the size 10 for a better, more comfortable fit. I received compliments all night and my boyfriend said that I broke a wedding guest rule... I looked better than the bride LOL!

This is a super cute dress but the slit is high! Loved it while I was standing but it wasn't comfortable while seated. Still loved the dress, but it was a cute dress.

Simply beautiul
This dress was super simple and extremely sexy. I wore the larger size for a little extra comfort but both fit fine and actually seemed extremely similar in size.

Perfect dress!
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?

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!!

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!

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!

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.

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 :)

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!

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.
