Dramatic lace

This dress zipped up, but was tight at the waist, so I didnt wear it because I have to sit a lot at work and didnt want to be uncomfortable. The sleeves were very billowy - I would be worried about getting them in food if you are not careful. Would be a great dress for an art gallery event, or other standing cocktail reception. I felt like this dress wore me, rather then me wearing the dress.

"Are you going out tonight?!"

Everyone in my office asked me if I was going out or had a date after work. I am in love with this dress, the lace is stunning, I want everything I own to have these sleeves and it fit my waist like a glove. It is a gorgeous dress. The only negative is the short turtle neck is also lined with the nude material under it, I wish it was sheer and only lace like the sleeves. Will rent again!!

Cute, classy, sexy. I want to buy this dress!

It's unfortunate that the pictures don't do this dress any justice. I felt so classy and put together in this dress. I received so many compliments. My stylist at the store said that it fit really nice on me because people don't always fill it out. So the curves helped! I wear an 8 put can sometimes get into a 6. The 6 said no, no, no, so I had to go with my normal 8. It fit great. It was a bit snug around the shoulder/upper arm area but I think it was supposed to be that way. I would totally rent this again.

Got compliments on this dress all night, felt beautiful but also different.

Wore to a black tie optional wedding and even though it is cocktail length the sleeves were dramatic enough to make it work. The 6 was very tight in the arms (which are not my thinnest body part), but the 8 fit perfectly. Highly recommend!

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!

The sleeves and high neck are gorgeous and the lace is really great quality!

This dress is really beautiful on. I sized up so that it wasn't tight through the hips and it ended up fitting perfect. The heavy lace and on-trend details make it perfect for a Fall wedding or Holiday Cocktail party!

The wedding was in the mountains of AZ, so I needed something cute but warm. Perfect.

Overall I loved the dress. It hid my 2 kids post-belly well which of course, I wanted with the pattern. I am short, so it came a little longer on me. I also wish the neck was a little tighter, but I am sure I am the only one that noticed that. It was perfect for a chilly outdoor wedding ... I would not have worn this in the summer heat, thats for sure. Overall - I would wear it again.

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.

Hands down my favorite rental. I felt stylish, chic, and beautiful in it. The wedding was so fun, I don't have many full length photos of me in it, but I promise you won't regret this rental!

loved this!

I didn't wear a bra since or it would have been too tight on my shoulders. Lots of compliments on the dress! The sleeves were more stiff than I suspected but I think the material looks detailed and amazing in person.

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!

Great dress

First my measurements... I wore the 8 and am 5'9", 155 pounds and a 36b. It fit perfectly! The 10 was too big. I loved this dress and got a lot of compliments. The material is heavy and it has pockets. It was short but not too short. I would definitely rent again!

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.

So many compliments

I wore this to a charity breakfast and got tons of compliments. Everyone wanted to know where I got it and kept rubbing my arm to feel the lace. It fit perfectly and I didn't need anything special underneath. It was so comfortable. I'm planning to wear it for future events since I felt so great in it.

Great dress! Very comfortable.

Runs a bit small in the sleeves, and there is not any stretch.
