Feeling like $1M when I don't have $1M to spend on a dress!

I wore this dress to a fundraiser in San Francisco attended by "high society" and top philanthropists who have closets full of couture. Throughout the night, I received compliments and I felt great - felt like I fit in with the attire of the other more financially secure guests. It was also very comfortable and easy to move in as we went from cocktail hour to dinner to a concert with dancing. The color was great - very bold and bright - and the fabric was soft to the touch with intricate detailing. It was a little loose in the bust but overall fit true to size. As a mom of two, I was pleased that it hid the parts of my body that are in need of some toning.

Beautiful but heavy!!

I have a short torso, so the bodice of this dress was way too long. I just had a baby and unfortunately the pleats and fullness of the skirt hung right on the baby fat. I chose it thinking it would make my waist look small and camouflage my lower abdomen and hips, but it did the opposite and made me look much bigger than I am. I am only 5'2" so I think it would look much better on someone taller. The quality is amazing though- the lace and the color are gorgeous!!! One thing to note is that this dress is very heavy- I wouldn't recommend wearing this outdoors during the summer!

I stopped at a store before my event to purchase a card and a sweet older women flagged me down in the parking lot just to tell me that my dress was STUNNING!

I wore this to a family member's Confirmation and to a nice dinner after. The dress was a bit heavy but extremely well built and high quality. The lace detail and the bold color stood out in a crowd and I received many compliments throughout the evening. I highly recommend this dress for a cocktail party/formal event. Love it!

Loved!

Loved this red lace number! I rented to go to a horse race with my husband. It was perfect! Fitted in just the right place, and the full skirt was great for hiding my hips. You can wear a bra with this as well, elegant and comfortable! Will rent this again for sure!

Other than the bride, you were the best dressed beauty at the wedding.

The color and sheen of this dress is fantastic. I fit into a size 8, but chose the 10 because of hem length. I prefer a dress that hits at or just above the knee. Girls if you are curvy, no worries this dress is not fitted at all through the hips...I hate it when the dress is flared but the lining is straight. That is definitely not the case here. This dress is heavy because of the crocheting. Although perfect for an early June wedding in the evening, I would hesitate if it was a middle of the day in August wedding.

I liked the dress

I really liked the dress, but the material was too heavy for summer. I should have also paid more attention to the height of the model because i was expecting the dress to hit me above the knees, but since im 5'7 and not 5'10, it hit me lower, which i did not care for either.

Compliments all night...

I wore this to a dear friend's wedding, and I received compliments on the dress all night long. The bride said it was the first thing she saw as she was walking down the aisle! The fabric is heavy, so I wouldn't recommend for an outdoor event, but it is beautiful and detailed, and the color surely pops!

So Many Compliments!

Great fit- should work for all shapes. I got TONS of compliments on this dress. I would say its not super hot and sexy but great for a classic look. Pictures don't do it justice, it looks like a $575 dress. Didn't want to part with it!

Not a summer dress...

First off, this dress was beautiful. Very high-end and luxe fabric, very well made, and was in great condition. It definitely runs large though as the 4 was quite big on me. This would be a great option for hippy girls as the skirt is quite flared and has tons of extra fabric. For me, I felt the extra fabric and flared skirt just added unnecessary bulk and made the whole thing a little too schoolgirl for my taste. It's also very heavy, as many other reviewers have said, so perhaps a better option for the fall/winter rather than summer. I ordered it as my back-up and didn't end up wearing it for all of these reasons. It's a lovely dress, but just wasn't for me in the end.

Fabulous dress!

Wore this to a 60th birthday party and got lots of compliments. I love the dress. It was a little large at the waist but I needed the size for the bust area. I would rent this dress again. Would love to own it!

Most amazing dress!

The beauty is in the detail of this one! I wasn't sure how it would fit and how I would like it, but it is absolutely gorgeous - I would love to own this dress! The lace is stunning (it's a thicker, "woven" lace, it's not super delicate) and even the gold zipper in the back was a great detail. I wore this for my engagement photos in June and I am thrilled that I am wearing this dress in all the pictures - it's awesome!

The Answer to the LBD!

I love this dress! It was my alternate selection and I ordered a size 6. My first choice worked for me so I did not end up wearing this but I would have needed a 4 if it was really going to work perfectly. There is a shiny satin fabric under the lacy overlay and details like the gold zipper pull in the back are great touches.

Short waist but still pretty

I was pleasantly surprised by the drape of this heavy lace. Even though it's kind of thick, it flows very nicely over the body. My issue with the fit was that the waist seemed a little high--not high enough that I thought it was intentional, but about 1 inch above my natural waist. This was my back up dress, so I wore the other, but I would rent this again.

Way more compliments than I expected. Fun dress, perfect for the dancefloor.

Pros: fits true to size, super flattering, perfect for a wedding, color is amazing, versatile. Cons: the fabric + lining is a little heavy so I wouldn't wear it to a super humid/hot destination, bodice is really fitted so if you have a huge cup size you may want to think about a different dress.

This dress stood out at the office retirement party so well.... It brightened the bittersweet day.

This dress was picked out for me be the wonderful RTR stylist due to the fact that the original Nantucket dress was not available last minute in my 2nd size choice. This wound up being a beautiful ,elegant, striking dress that although was slightly big in the waist for me ( I belted it was a black 2" wide patent belt) and it was great. The look was then made a bit more casual for what I needed it for and I loved it. I did wear the size 2 Nantucket dress the next day since I had it and loved that one also. Thank you Janna and Lindsay for your terrific customer service and the phone call to let me know my options and just for being excellent stylist that knew what I would like!!!! You are the best!!

lady who lunches

I received this dress as a back up option for a wedding. The dress was really pretty, with the fabric having a nice weight to it for a lace dress. I really loved the shape of the dress, but the top didn't do much for me. The fit was beautiful, but I normally wear a 4 and this dress fit in a 2. I really liked it, it just wasn't right for the evening wedding I was attending.

cute dress, but could benefit from tailoring

I rented this dress for a wedding, but the fit wasn't as I expected. The fabric was heavy and cute through the bodice, but the skirt was way too long. I returned it. If I owned the dress and was able to tailor it, it might work. Maybe this will work better on taller girls!

The color and the lace were absolutely gorgeous.

The 8 was really baggy, especially in the bust. The 6 fit much better, but still needed to be belted. Overall, a very ladylike dress perfect for a conservative wedding.

Well-fitting, flattering, easy to wear dress!

This dress is FABULOUS. It is a beautiful color and just fit my body so well. It was a high enough neck for a family wedding while not having that dreaded huge unaboob effect that can happen. The fabric was heavy enough to cover body flaws but not so heavy that I was dying on a very hot day. Can't recommend it more.

Flattering fit with waistline in the right place! The skirt is not as full as it looks in RTR photo.

I got lots of compliments on this dress! It's a great color too. I paired it with gold, open-toe heels for summer. Dress would be good in fall too!

RTR is absolutely fabulous! They even sent me extra little goodies in my order!

Love love love love love!! I wore this for a night of sorority recruitment and got compliments the whole time I had it on. As president of my sorority, I wanted to wear something that was going to stand out and this was such a great choice. I wish I owned this dress! It was a little long for me since I'm only 5'3 but it was easy to make it work regardless. This dress is a little heavy like other reviews have said but it was nothing that bothered me. I wore it on an 80 degree day and had no complaints. Totally recommend this for any occasion! PS the girl in the black dress got her dress from RTR also. RTR is now a hit in our sorority house! Absolutely love this company and would recommend it to anyone!

Cute as a button

I rented this dress of a rehearsal dinner at the Penn Club – it was just perfect. An easy fit that I’m sure would be flattering on anyone (being A-line), very comfortable. Can be dressed up or down. For this venue/occasion, I accessorised with Jimmy Choo gold Loila heels and multi-color glitter Candy clutch, and RTR’s Erickson Beamon’s Confetti cocktail ring. The mother of the bride complimented me profusely!

Hello Meghan Draper, sorry Betty! 60's fabulous!

I was going through a mad men phase when I decided to wear and rent this dress. I even looked up make tutorials for the look of Jessica Pare's character on mad men. I was going for a total 60's look which definitely was noticed and highly complimented! I was even called Mrs Draper by a few wedding guests! The dress is actually a heavy dress but it was fine to wear to the outdoor wedding I attended. I wish I could have kept this dress. It has a natural waist cut, so unfortunately I dont know if it would be comfortable for all especially if you have a large bust size. I would definitely wear this again!

I wore this dress for my engagement photo session.

This dress was perfect! Very romantic, the color pops, and a very classic cut. I love the softness of the dress against the gritty Brooklyn backdrop. This dress will make our photos timeless. true to size. But heavier than it appears -- so careful if you plan on wearing it outside on a hot summer day.

Easy to look pulled together

As mentioned in some of the other reviews, the lace is heavier, but I liked it because it didn't feel cheap and was good for this cooler time of year. Great fit and length (just above the knee) for an event like the rehearsal dinner I was at.

Beautiful coral color, but I couldn't wear it because the lining was ripped :(

I rented this dress for a brunch I was attending. When it arrived the lining was ripped and you could see skin through the overlay of lace. I was unable to wear the dress so I went with my backup. Gorgeous dress though so if it hadn't been ripped I would have worn it.

It's always nice to feel really pretty and be really comfortable at the same time.

The fit is great, it could have been a tiny bit tighter on the top, but no big deal. It has little threads inside the straps that you can use to secure your bra straps so you don't have to worry about them peeking out. Always a nice touch. The lace was looking a little worse for wear on the size O, but only noticeable if you looked really closely, and only in one spot.

A women came up to me and said I had the best dress at the entire event.

It fit very well. I am bigger in the chest area and it covered everything and was not to snug. The material is a bit heavy, but not uncomfortable. I received so many compliments from women my age to my grandmothers age. I was told I looked like a princess and that I had the best dress in the room. I would recommend this to anyone!

I felt fab in this Kate Spade dress. The detail is pretty elaborate and special. Very Mad Men.

The fit was great but be aware that it runs small. Like if I cared what size I was, it might be nice , but it wasn't tight. Just glad the rental comes with 2 sizes. Great with the vintage grandma pieces I wore, but some of the accessories on RTR would be amazing too. Thanks RTR for making my facebook comments on this dress off the chain!
