Samantha at the Georgetown store was awesome. Very easy process to walk in and try on dresses.
Wore this dress for a cocktail party. Note the lining is nude not white like it looks in the photos. Too was slightly big big waist and hips fit true to size. Very comfortable and easily dressed up or down. Received many compliments and would recommend to anyone. Lace was not itchy and just wore a black bra underneath...you could really tell. Highly recommend. For those who are DC local check out the store in Georgetown. The staff is super and you leave feeling like a true hottie!

I love this dress!
I have nothing bad to say about this dress! It was comfortable and the fit was amazing. If I dressed up often I would own this dress. I had a hard time sending it back. I felt like a princess wearing this dress! I will definitely rent it again.

I chose this dress because of the reviews. It fit great and was very comfortable.
The dress was very comfortable. The 16x was a perfect fit. I'm 5'4 and 192 pounds and the dress fit well and was the perfect length. The dress is very feminine , flowy and flirty. The ordering process was great as well. Would definitely rent from RTR again.

Fabulous experience for first-time RTRer. Shipping process easy, dresses were ready to go gorgeous!
Fit was relatively true-to-size. Wore the 20W for comfort but the 18W would also fit with a shaper. I typically wear 16-18 in pants, depending on cut/brand. Felt like $1,000,000 in this and got so many compliments! Can I keep it?! :)

Perfect for art show
The dress is so pretty in person. Fit great and had to wear strapless bra. Got a compliment from a very fashionable friend, that made me feel so special. The lace is beautiful but can snag easily.

Love the look of this dress. Classy and elegant!
This was my first RTR experience and I loved every bit of it! I wore this to a high school graduation party and I wish I would have ordered a size down for my extra one because it was a little loose. But it still was a great fit and I got lots of compliments. Will definitely rent again!

Flattering!
Great dress for a wedding. It was comfortable and beautiful! As other reviews mentioned, you can wear a nude bra with it without any attention drawn to it. Would rent this again if I had to!

Fantastic dress!
This dress is perfect. I ordered true to size and it fit beautifully. It hugs in the right areas and is forgiving in others where you need a little room. I ate, danced (a lot), sat, and even did a few sprints in this dress. The top of the dress is see-through lace both front and back so you can see straps. You can chose to wear a strapless bra if you like. I opted for a satin type black bra with mesh in the straps. It blended in and looked like another layer. I also tried a nude bra but it did stand out and was much more noticeable, surprisingly enough. Overall I would rent this dress again, I felt so comfortable yet beautiful and really enjoyed the evening. Enjoy!

Flattering, comfortable, and glamorous!
The dress fit perfectly and wasn't too heavy. I felt extremely comfortable and beautiful the entire night. One of the servers at the wedding even complimented me on the dress so I knew it was a winner. This was my first experience with RTR; and I will definitely do it again. I was impressed with the packaging and how easy the whole process was from renting to returning. My family kept asking me where I got the dress so I think a few more people will be trying out this awesome experience!

Great dress
I have 38F bra size and this dress fit well in the 16w size. The 18w was my back up - it fit but was too roomy. I was worried I would need a strapless bra... But a black regular bra was fine. I received lots of compliments on the dress. I wore this to a bar mitzvah.

This was my first time using RTR. I got lots of compliments and will definitely use it again!
The fit was great it was slightly bigger than I needed it to be but it wasn't a problem. It was comfortable and fun to dance in! I wore this to our school fundraising gala and had lots of compliments!

I felt confident and cute in this dress!
I am a 38D so I generally have to size up to a 16 if the top is at all fitted but the 14W was perfect. I rented it for my birthday dinner date with my husband and it was just right style wise - dressy enough for a special evening out but not overly formal for a simple dinner reservation. I felt great in this dress and it earned my husband's seal of approval too "You look HOT!" ;-).

So comfortable and flattering!
I wore this to a friend's 40th birthday party at a very nice restaurant and it was perfect for the occasion. I was pleasantly surprised to try on the smaller of my sizes and have it fit without issue. It was comfortable all evening. The neckline was nice because I didn't have to worry about flashing everyone all evening. I told my husband that this is a dress I'd actually love to own.

Love this dress! Wish it was mine!!!
The fit was good, it was not tight and it is not a dress that requires spanx underneath. It was so comfortable! The length was perfect for an afternoon wedding.

The lace beneath was a nude color, not white which is how it looks in pics. The lace was delicate and lady like. Fit so comfortably. Loved this dress.

Perfect for my wine bar bridal shower.
Rented this for my bridal shower; fit very comfortably (I wear a 14 or 16 and ordered the 16 to allow room for my tummy and hips) and dare I say was a bit "roomy" in the tummy and hip area. I did not wear a bra with this - would recommend a strapless bra or clear strap bra for those wanting/needing to wear a bra. I received many compliments on the dress - would absolutely rent again.

Loved this dress!
Excellent quality, super comfortable, and very flattering! I wear anything around 18/20, and the 18 had a tiny bit of extra room so I'd recommend ordering your back up size one size smaller rather than larger. I wanted to buy this dress. "It IS really pretty, but no." - My husband

Awesome customer service
I ordered a different dress but the size 20 was damaged so they offered me to pick out another dress and allowed it to be more expensive. The size 18 in the dress that I had ordered was also damaged and because my event was in the morning the next day (nephew's bar mitzvah service) I had to wear this dress. I loved the dress but it was a little big. RTR did offer to send a replacement but I didn't have enough time. I would definitely use them again!!!

Fun comfortable dress
This dress is comfortable , flirty and fun. I received many compliments. I was a little concerned because it hit me just above the knee.....turns out the length was perfect. Was worn to a black tie work awards dinner. Was able to dance the night away in comfort.

Fit like a glove
Beautiful fit on the dress. I have a very large chest and had plenty of room to dance and move! It hit in the perfect place at my waist to hide the imperfections in my stomach area from having a baby!

Didn't want to send it back!
Ended up wearing this dress to the rehearsal dinner of a wedding I was a part of. Beautiful dress, fit super well, only complaint is it was a little bit shorter than I expected- the way it fans out is flattering but definitely don't bend at the waist!

Nice dress
It looked nice on. Almost too much room, but I decided it was more comfortable that way (and didn't feel like changing out to the 14, lol).

A perfect fit on a perfect night
This dress fit like a glove. I was worried, based on the sizing guide, that it might not fit in the bust. I'm very busty. But that wasn't the case at all! Plus it camouflaged my growing baby bump (it's still early, so it's more just like a bit of a spare tire at this point). I didn't want to take it off at the end of the night! I wanted something classy but fun to wear when finally seeing my favorite musical, and this dress did not disappoint!

Comfortable dress
Gorgeous dress for a wedding - was all outdoors and the dress was a good fit! It wasn't too heavy of a dress but wasn't too light, good fall dress to be worn with a cover or without and still look great! I wore nude shoes and it looked perfect, black would also be great.
