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!

The material is very heavy! Felt like it weighted 10 lbs. I ordered a 4 and 6 and actually wished I would've had a 2. It's a beautiful dress, loved the lace detail.

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.

Fab Fourth of July Dress
I wore this dress to a Fourth of July dinner dance. The fun bright red color was perfect for the occasion and the skirt was great for dancing. I'd definitely order it again!

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!

I was not able to wear the dress because it was too small in the waist.
The dress has a more trim waist, and is not at all forgiving if you are not an hour-glass shape. I was so disappointed to return it.

I got this dress for my bridal show ant it was perfect. I kept getting compliments on the dress!
The fit was a little larger than I would have like but nothing that a little belting couldn't fix. The dress was a beautiful color and it felt really great. It was a really wonderful color and I kept getting compliments on my beautiful dress from strangers.

I wore this dress for my bridal shower in August 2012. Great dress, great fit! Loved it!
The material is very luxe and the A-line shape is flattering. It is also a good dress for a more formal party since it is not too flimsy but you are still cool and comfortable (I wore it during a hot August day). The only problem with the size 6 they sent me was that the hem was broken in front. However, RTR also provided me with a little satchel that had double stick tape and it helped to keep the hem in tact where it was coming apart. The dress runs true to size. I ordered a size 6 and 8 and I wore the size 6. Other than the hem issue, this dress was great and I received so many compliments on it! I also rented the Kate Spade ship clutch and it was a great accent to the dress!

A bit disappointing.
I had high hopes for this dress, but it unfortunately didn't work out for me. The skirt was definitely fuller than I thought it was going to be, but it wasn't too full. I ordered the 4 and the 2 as my backup. The 4 was too large and the lace on the 2 puckered in between my chest and the waistline. This dress might just be one of those for small chested girls.

best dressed wedding guest in this dress!
I wore this dress to my husband's best friend's wedding and it was absolute perfection! It was extremely comfortable and so awesome to dance in. The skirt of the dress twirls a lot so it looked incredible in photos. I wish I owned this dress because i know i would get tons of wear out of it!

I can sum it up in one word: PHENOMENAL!
I don't think I have loved a dress as much as I did this one! It fits beautifully, the dress is just gorgeous, the color is beautiful, and the length is perfect. I HIGHLY recommend it! I wore it to my senior graduation and paired it with nude pumps. You will not be disappointed by this dress! I'm petite and that's huge worry for me when I rent dresses but this dress left me so unbelievably happy that I almost didn't want to return it

This is a really pretty dress, great detail and shape overall.
This dress runs pretty true to size. It was a really pretty dress on - unfortunately the only down side was that the fabric was a lot heavier than I thought and I decided to return and swap it out for a different dress. I think this dress would be good for a fall or winter event.

Great for the holidays, fabric is heavy
I was planning on wearing this dress for a holiday party until I tried it on and it wasn't as dressy as I would've liked. Instead I wore it the Following night to the Nutcracker. I received a bunch of complements but I wasn't as in love with it as much as I thought I'd be. I'm 5'8" and the dress reached my knees so the dress would probably be below the knees if you're shorter or if you have a shorter torso. The skirt also falls heavy. I noticed some girls wore this dress to summer parties. Personally I would've overheated with this dress having so much fabric. Although I wasn't head over heels for the dress, I'm pleased with my RTR experience. Everything worked out very well logistically and it was fun to wear a new dress out.

Perfect for holiday parties!
I wore this dress for my best friend's bridal shower last weekend and received so many compliments on it! The overall fit was great - runs true to size. The length was a little longer than I thought it would be (it would look frumpy without heels) but it was such a hit that I really didnt care. I would definitely recommend the dress to others. I wore it with nude heels but it could definitely be worn with tights, booties and a cute leather jacket. Very versitile!

Pretty Dress, However not for me.
This dress is very pretty and has a great weight to it. I order a 10 which is true to my size. Because I have a large chest 34 D, the dress was not very appealing. , I have average size hips, however this dress made me feel like I was all chest and hips. Not attractive at all. Sadly I sent it back. I think if you have a smaller chest and a straight shape, this would be adorable.
