"You're giving me Grace Kelly!" Best. Compliment. Ever.
Perfect dress for the red carpet! The pearly pink color gives it such a classic look. I accessorized lightly with a diamond-pearl choker, studs, crystal bracelet and silver mesh clutch from RTR. The fit would've been 100% perfect if I had just enough bust to fill the top but I didn't mind the looseness. It tightens up in my midsection and hips and then loosens again for a mermaid look. I'm 5'8, so I was really happy that the dressed kissed the floor and covered my heels in pictures. Wrinkles easily so make sure you press this dress properly!

The cause: 2015 Nomi Network Annual Gala and Awards Dinner - In our lifetime slavery will end.
I love, love, love this dress, however it runs VERY small and was very tight. Size up 1 or 2 above your regular size (especially if you will be sitting for a long period of time or doing any walking). Unfortunately I misjudged on this one and had difficulty zipping up the dress. Color is pale pink/rose.

I wore this dress to my graduation ball and felt great in it! The dress was simple but elegant.
As a shorter woman I was worried about a full-length gown dragging along the floor, but with heels, this one hit the perfect length. In terms of the fit, t was snug, but in all of the right places, and especially being strapless, made me feel more secure that it wasn't going anywhere. Overall it was a beautiful dress for a beautiful night!

This look was amazing and I received so many compliments across the evening. A winning look!
Fit was just a little snug, but it definitely made the look as it hugged the curves. The color was excellent, and while I have a deep chocolate skin tone, I believe it would look incredible on any complexion. My only con is that it was hard at first to get use to walking up stairs and moving around in the dress. I was in a wedding party, so spent a lot of time throughout the day walking up and down stairs and around the city. However, once I was used to the fit, I was easily able to dance the night away.

First RTR dress and was hooked!
This was my first time using RTR and I was immediately hooked on using the service for wearing formal attire. The dress fit like a glove, true to size, perfect length. Use spanx to smooth out as the fabric isn't too forgiving.

Complements all night!
The dress was a little short. I am 5.7 and ordered the 12L. It was a little night for a 12 so the fabric on the inside kept twisting, so i was in the bathroom a lot adjusting. But I loved the color and style!

Beautiful dress but you could tell that it has been worn numerous times
Beautiful dress but you could tell that it has been worn numerous times. The lining on the inside also pokes you and is really uncomfortable. The top part of the dress also does not look as nice as the picture since it flops over (I am a full 34B and could not fill the top). Overall nice dress but would not rent again.

Classic, beautiful dress!
I loved how simple and elegant this dress was. I rented it for some "wedding redo" pics and it worked perfectly. I rented both the 0 and the 2 but decided to go with the 0 because I wanted it to be a little more form fitting. It was pretty comfortable. Not the easiest to walk in since I sized down a bit but I was able to wear it for quite a few hours no problem. The soft pink color is beautiful too!

Pretty but a bit uncomfortable
The top was either a little big or maybe it was stretched out? It was very tight around my hips. The petite was the perfect length for my height. I did get a lot of compliments but it wasn't my favorite dress. The top was too big and it was a chore to use the bathroom or get up from my seat. Also- the wires on the side get digging into my ribs.

Dress is beautiful! Petite sizes were unavailable which I think would have fit me best, but the 0R worked ok. Stays were poking out a bit when I got the dress but it was so pretty I wore it anyway!

Great for a black tie wedding!
This was perfect for my friend's black tie wedding! I'm glad I ordered the long, as I am 5'7" and had to wear flat sandals even with the 6L. Like others have said, it isn't easy to dance in, but not impossible! It was a great fit, and I'd rent it again.

Pretty but didn't fit me
This is such a pretty dress but I had to go home and change before my event because the top fit me so poorly. Online the fabric looks stiffer and thicker than it is in real life, it moves more than I expected it would. From the waist down the 4L fit me great, but I couldn't get the zipper to stay up. I wouldn't recommend this for bustier girls, I'm a 32DD and that was too much for the top. It kept falling down, which was such a disappointment. In addition, there was a hole on one side of the dress, and the hook on the back was missing.

The PERFECT dress!
This dress runs true to size and really compliments your curves. I ordered the 0R and 2R, both fit however the 2R fit looser and was much longer. I liked the tighter fit and went with the 0R. It fit great in all the right places! It's a great dress for us small chested ladies! I wore about 3 1/2 to 4inch heels which worked perfectly with the length of the dress and did not wear a strapless bra. Not only does this dress look great in pictures but it's a dress you can dance in all night as well. Received compliments all night. I don't have a single negative thing to say about this dress, I would definitely rent it again!! I absolutely loved it!

Loved this dress so much! The blush color works perfect with a good tan, normally I wear a size 2 but I got a 4 because I wanted it less tight so I could dance. It slipped down a little but otherwise very flattering fit & style!

I wore this for a black-tie work event and received a ton of compliments! The material is thick and comfortable and the shape is very flattering. It fit snug and was a bit long, but I'd rather that than too loose or too short. I would definitely recommend this dress!

I ordered this as a back-up dress and although I loved it- ended up wearing the first dress just because it was more appropriate for the event. Was sad I couldn't wear this one too. Beautiful color and very classy.

The dress's fit is very pretty and perfect for formal occasions that do not involve to much dancing.
I usually wear a 4 (the 6 fit better), but if you have any type of butt, make sure you order the size up as your backup size. Beautiful dress and pretty comfortable, just not at all dance friendly.

Absolute dream dress!
I loved this dress so much. Got countless compliments including from strangers. The color is a perfect blush pink, and the bottom of the dress is so elegant and moves beautifully. Wore the 0R although it was snug, and definitely not forgiving in the mid section at all. While the fabric, structure and piping of the dress helps to slim, it's definitely a tight dress (maybe a Spanx use case but I did not use any) I could have done the 2R just as well but liked the tightness of the 0R. Worked better for me without a bra -- the bra made it look bulkier on top. Highly recommend this for a formal event! My one ask to RTR would be to mind the bottom of the dress - mine came a bit dirty which was a bummer.

I truly loved the service and ease of renting a dress for my gala.
The fit was great. I had to go up a size. But the dress fit really nice. Had to wear a strapless bra despite the boning which allowed for the top of the dress to remain smooth. I will definitely rent again.

Being able to choose a great dress that fit my curves.
I am so glad this dress fit me perfectly! The first dress that the bride chose for me to wear didn't fit, so RTR sent me 3 dresses of my choice on no extra charge before the wedding! Such an incredible company! I felt beautiful as her matron of honor and I loved this dress!

This dress was awesome for my high school winter formal!
I usually wear between a 4 and 6 so I ordered both sizes. The four bunched up weird around my waist, so I ended up wearing the 6. It fit well but was loose around my bust and rib cage. A bit of fashion tape solved the problem! With 3 inch heels on this dress was perfect length for me. Unfortunately, it has lost a bit of its shape around the middle due to such popular use! However, it still received many compliments.

dress looked ok, but was not in good condition
fit great, however dress was not in good condition at all. Boning was almost poking through the fabric along the front of the dress in one spot, and in 2 spots the boning rubbed my skin raw. very disappointed in the condition of the dress.

Absolutely loved this dress and felt like a million bucks on NYE. I have a smaller waist and chest (32 A/B) and still had trouble keeping a size zero pulled up when dancing. Also, I ordered a size 0R, but a 0L came in, so do keep in mind this can happen. Would definitely recommend this dress but for an event less physically active than NYE/dance party/etc.

I wore this dress to the Veiled Prophet Ball.
The dress came on time and was gorgeous! I received a lot of compliments. I am only 5'5" and I had to wear short heels because it was not very long so if you want it to reach the floor and still be able to wear heels, I would try the long version. My only problem with the dress was that it was super uncomfortable due to the wires that were sticking out and jabbing me all night.

Favorite rental so far!! Didn't want to return it!
I wore this dress for a Commencement Ball and it was perfect! It was flattering and sexy but elegant and classy. I got tons of compliments! I ordered the dress in 0L and 2L because I was afraid with heels it would be too short and I'm glad I did. I'm 5'7" and with my 3 inch heels I wanted to make sure the dress was long enough. The only complaint I have is that it is pretty snug in the chest/stomach area. While it was nice because it wasn't falling down it made it difficult to sit down/move around at times. Other than that I have zero complaints and would rent it again!!

Loved this dress, wish it was dry cleaned correctly
I really did love this dress, it's cut so nicely and very flattering for a slender and curvy person. It was a tiny bit long for me so I just wore taller shoes. This may be my favorite rtr rental so far. However, the top portion kept trying to curl. I even tried steaming it and ironing it. I'm sure when this dress was brand new it was flawless. It's unfortunate that rtr doesn't take better care of the dresses.

The dress is definitely form fitting, you can see every bump and line so I sized up! Also, the wiring in the bust can get a little uncomfortable if you're sitting for a long period of time.

Rented it as a bridesmaid dress for my friend's wedding. Ordered 6 L & 8 L, wore the 8.
Beautiful dress - do recommend ordering a size up. Loved the dress but it appears that a lot of people do because the quality of the dress is starting to diminish. The color is fading somewhat, the boning of the dress was sticking out on the 8L and the 6L had zero boning. Overall it was a pretty dress but it might be time to retire or replace it. Also, even after steaming the neckline drooped down the entire night which was a bummer since the neckline is what makes it unique in my mind.

This dress fit like a glove and I got SO many compliments at the ball. Renting was so easy!
If you expect to "get down" then this may not be the dress for you. It is quite tight to the knees so keep that in mind. Also if you are well endowed in the gluteus region then you may need to go up a size because it fits tight (J.Lo like). The dress can also be long for some people. I'm 5'6", wore 4 inch heels and the dress still swept the floor. Also I noticed many people had problems with it being loose in the bust but I didnt have that problem. I did wear a stick on bra to help with support. I LOVED this dress though and felt amazing in it. It helped me maintain good posture throughout the night and I felt beautiful! I think this dress provided amazing structure in the mid section.

Gorgeous color, pretty fit
I rented this dress for a formal gala I attended, and the color could not have been more perfect. I found the dress runs a little small - I rented a 4R and a 6R and ended up wearing the 6, though I am almost always a 4. The length was perfect with the 4 inch heels I wore. My only complaint about this dress (and why I am not giving it all 5 stars) is that it has wire piping in chest, and on both of my dresses, the piping was sticking out on one side. I was afraid it was going to rip through the fabric! My boyfriend said it was hardly noticeable, but it definitely stood out to me.

Compliments all night about this dress!
I am 5'9, 135 lbs, 32 D (I hope that helps with others about the dress adding my sizes) The dress fit perfect all over. Very flattering! I got a long, but even with the long I couldn't wear heels with this dress. I should add that I do have longer legs (34.5 inches) so maybe for other 5'9 girls they may not have this problem. Not sure. I should also add, I don't like it when the heels show with this type of dress (unless you are walking of course, I understand that) but even standing still, my shoes we showing (all 3 pair different heights I brought) I had to wear dressy flip flops which ended up being fine. No one could tell because it hit the ground perfect when I was standing still . The "long" in this would be best for someone size 8 and is 5'6 wearing heels or someone 5'9 who doesn't want to wear heels. Hope this helps others with sizing! :)

Pretty in pink.
The color of the dress was very pretty, but given the light color and body-hugging fit, the dress isn't too forgiving. I'm in between sizes, so I would have felt more comfortable in the 10 (I didn't have a back-up size because I ordered this through my Unlimited account).
