Gorgeous Sleeves!

Fits tight through the body; not great for tall girls. Sleeves are very glamorous and overall look is chic

70's chic!

This dress was SO high quality. The minute I walked into the room, I received compliments. It was a show stopper for sure. The top is really fitted and the bottom part is more of a sheath style. The sleeves are amazing. It was so comfortable and chic. I felt like a million bucks in this dress. This may be one I have to rent again!

Perfect Dress!

The dress is absolutely beautiful! I'm 5'3, 115 pounds, and I wore the size 0 which fit like a glove. There is no give to this dress, so if you're looking for stretch this won't work. The sleeves were a little tight, so if you have bigger arms it could be a potential problem. My husband thought I looked stunning, it's really one of those dresses that catch people's attention, in good way!

So many compliments!

Wore this to a friend's wedding. I was so impressed with the material, it was so flattering and comfortable:. I sized up since it was more form fitting and it was perfect. I was obsessed with the sleeves and wish I could have kept it

I want it in my closet forever.

This dress. So many compliments! So witchy and fun and sexy! So perfect! I ordered a size up due to the reviews saying the waist was small, and the 8 was perfect! Definitely size up, I usually only have to size up if something is tight around the hips, more like an 8 on the bottom and a 4-6 on top....my upper body is pretty slender and this fit like a glove. The sleeves are amazing and were a perfect length. The length of the dress was nice (hit at lower thigh). A+++

Beautiful

The dress was a little snug, but I thought the smaller size looked better. I'm normally a 2-4 and chose the 2. It was a beautiful dress and very comfortable! I will be renting from RTR again in the future!

So chic

I didn't wear this bc I has another option but it was gorgeous. Would rent for another wedding. I got a 4 and it was a tailored fit - couldn't have done a 2. It was snug but would have been wearable.

Very Dolce & Gabbana

I wore this to a black &a white themed event at an art museum. Hard to stand out in a plain black dress. Good thing this is the exact opposition of plain! Lots of compliments. Fit well up top but probably should have sized down for a perfect fit.

Beautiful lace arms

Wore to a black tie optional wedding. Loved this dress and received soo many compliments! I originally went for the size 2 but chose to wear my back up size 4. It gave me a lil more room but wasn't baggy.

Loved this dress was a bit snug. Great for a fall rehearsal dinner. Would suggest sizing up if you have a C chest or larger.

Great style.

I rented this dress for the opera and got multiple compliments on it. The lace is high quality and the sleeves are unique. Plus - pockets! I'm usually a 4, and I got into that size, but it was rather tight. I ended up wearing the 6 to give me some breathing room. Size up for backup!

So much sass! Loved the vintage vibe.

Such an adorable dress! I loved loved loved the bell sleeves, and so did everyone else! I adored the vintage vibe and felt like a 60s gal. The dress was super comfortable and easy to wear. This picture doesn't do it justice.

Runs small!

Beautiful dress but I was unable to wear. I usually wear a 6 or 8 in formal dresses. The 8 was way too snug in the arms and across my hips to even wear :( Luckily great customer service at RTR was able to send me a replacement in time!

Someone told me I looked like "Stevie Nicks' foxiest years"!

Well, this dress is a dream! At first, I was like, "are these sleeves too much?" but after a mere hour hostessing my holiday party, I can definitely say: No. They are not too much. They are DIVINE. So admittedly, I have chubby arms, so the lace on my size-6 dress was tight but only a little confining for me. And because it's winter, I wore tights, so I cannot speak to really *feeling* the length or shortness of the dress. (Though, at 5'6, I would say it was only moderately — not scary — short.) The neckline is high but never uncomfortable, and I thought the body of the dress was very true to size. (I'm fairly flat-chested, though, so warning to gals with a bigger bust that this dress might confine you.) My eye went to where the fabric bowed out on my hips, only to reveal that YES! Even this cutie little short dress had built-in pockets. I felt like art-school Joan Holloway. Or hipster Elvira. Or something! In any case, two thumbs up!

The perfect dress!

I absolutely loved this dress. The detail of the lace is gorgeous. I wore it to my daytime company Christmas party. I received many compliments. I loved the style. It was so comfortable. I found it to be true to size. I recommend having someone to help zip it on and off. It was difficult to grab the zipper because it was so tiny. Overall this was one of my all time favorite rentals and I will definitely rent this again.

This fit true to size, and received compliments all night. I'm petite with short arms, and the sleeves were still fine and not too long. Loved this dress and would rent again!

Unique rehearsal dinner dress

I wore this to my own rehearsal dinner which was obviously a special occasion but took place in a local brew pub--it is the perfect dress because it can be interpreted as fancy or casual depending on the context. The sleeves were awesome and I got lots of compliments throughout the night. I thought the fit was true to size (I wore a size 4 which is the same as my wedding dress)-- when I sized down to the 2, I found it tight around my bust & arms. Loved how unique it was & would definitely recommend it!

Loved this dress!

I loved this dress and actually wore it twice. Once to work with black tights and booties then once out in LA for a date night with thigh high boots. I got tons of compliments from other women and my husband loved as well. Win win! One of the pockets stuck out a little, but not enough to truly bother me. Could be quickly fixed with a small stitch to keep it closed.

Nice lace LBD

This dress is made of high quality crochet-like lace with a sturdy nude lining. Long enough for work. Great basic with a few nice details like the bell sleeves. Will rent again.

I loved this dress!

I got so many compliments. Definitely runs true to size and for a short girl like me, I would have preferred it to be a little shorter in length but overall I loved it. Especially loved having pockets! The bell sleeve was so beautiful and the lace is perfect. It's a little heavier in fabric so probably not something you want to wear in springtime or summer. So sad it's not in my closet forever.

Got so many compliments in this one! The dress fits perfectly with a tiny bit of stretch in the fabric and is very comfortable but the bell sleeves make it stand out and are very on trend!

Wish I could keep it!

I love, love, loved this dress. I rented the 2 and the 4 - the 2 fit, but was a little tight up top, and I needed to spend 16 hours in the dress, so I went with the 4. Got tons of compliments all night, and the pockets were a godsend, as I was working red carpet at an awards show. I dreaded sending it back, I wish I could keep it forever!

Overall fit well and loved this dress but a few disclaimers.. Runs small went with the 4, tight around the neck and bust.. and almost too short on me but it worked :)!

Perfect date night dress!

LOVED this dress! It was absolutely stunning in person, and so comfortable. The pockets were an added bonus! I ordered the 0 and the 2 (usual size), and while both fit, the 2 felt better in the shoulders. I wish I owned this perfect dress!
