Fabulous dress with great lines
The dress is figure hugging but thick material so it holds it all in the maroon color was beautiful for a fall wedding. I'm 5'8" so the length was perfect on me. They only had a size 4 but I think the 6 might a fit better. It was a little tight. I would def rent again.

I felt like royalty- this dress just makes you ooze confidence!
I was nervous about this because the largest size available is my smaller size, but the fit was amazing. Plenty of room in the chest (I'm a 32G), the hips fit perfectly, and the wave of fabric down the front was exactly what I needed for my 2 month post baby belly! This dress is just simply amazing.

This dress fit well and was very flattering. The size chart is a little off, seems to run big.
Very flattering material, it's stretchy and gives where you need it to. The neckline with the cut out is sexy yet classy. I normally wear between a size 6 and 8. The size chart says a size 46 is an 8, a 44 is a 6 and a 42 is a 4 but I had to exchange the original rental for a size 42 because the 44 was too big. RTR was very helpful in getting me the size I needed in time for the party. The color is a little darker/deeper burgundy than it appears in the sample picture. All in all I loved the dress and the experience.

This is such an elegant looking dress but unbelievably comfortable at the same time.
The slit allows this classy dress to have a little sex appeal. The dress not only looks but feels high quality. Both the 42 and 44 fit but I felt more comfortable in the 44 so having the backup size was convenient.

Beautiful deep maroon color, figure flattering, and easy to dance in!
This dress is gorgeous and very comfortable. It is more of a thick stretchy material that seems to run big. I got several compliments and felt beautiful and comfortable all night.

Simply stunning
I typically wear a size 6 for more fitted dresses. I ordered the size 42 and 44. I never even tried on the larger size because the 42 fit like a glove. The fabric of the body feels like a light weight neoprene and is very forgiving and comfortable. I did need to purchase a strapless bra, but that was a small sacrifice. The color is rich and was a comfortable alternative to the sea of LBDs at the event. I would love to wear this again. I received many so compliments in this sophisticated piece.

First time to rent a dress. It was perfect!!!
Loved the dress! This was my first rental and I was very impressed with the quality. I can easily fit into a size 8, but the 6 was more form fitting. I was concerned that the side ruffle/gathering that it would be to much, it wasn't at all. Keeping your shoulders back is a must in this dress, the cut out in front will sag if you don't. I would wear this dress again!!!

Fabric and design beautiful, flattering and forgiving
This is a dress I would love to own. You can wear it as a casual dress with boots (which I did for Thanksgiving) or it could be far more formal with heels. The color is between a wine and a purple, really unusual and pretty. The cutout at the neck is just edgy/sexy enough. Combined with length of sleeve and dress it goes from date night to middle school (Mom attending) concert. Really versatile, love, love, love!!

Gorgeous color and silhouette
Gorgeous dress. I'm not a glam-girl so I felt comfortable that the dress was fancy enough for black-tie event. Great fit. I wasn't sure if I would where 44 or 42 but picked the 44. (I'm 5-7 and 135 lbs B/C cup).

Simply gorgeous!!!
I wore this dress for a vow renewal while 4.5 months pregnant and it fit just amazing!! I went up one size to an 8 (I'm usually a 6) for the extra room and it was perfect!! Great for maternity even though it isn't advertised as one because of the stretch material. Just gorgeous!

Loved the dress but I needed a smaller size
Loved this dress. It was perfect for the rehearsal dinner I went to. The skirt is very long , longer than I expected. The 46 fit but I wish I had the 44 as I requested but rtr forgot to send it. I probably won't rent the dress again but it was very comfy.

Amazing quality - inconsistent sizing
My husband bought me this dress (same brand - slightly different style) from Nieman Marcus. After seeing the price tag - I sent it back and signed up for RTR. I LOVE the quality of the brand, but sizing seems to be slightly inconsistent. The "4" in the other style was snug and the "6/44" in this one was too baggy. I am definitely going to try this one in the 4 and hope for the best.

The dress was a show stopper. So easy to use and will use again!
The dress was perfect on me and is flattering for all body types. A show stopper for sure! I was worried about the length being too long but it was so perfect. My only wish is that I went a size smaller.

Classy & comfortable!
This is my second rental from this brand and was another winner. It fit great and was complimentary to my figure. I wore to a work function and felt put together. My only con is I sized up and the neckline was a little big at the bottom of the cutout detail. As long as I stood up straight it was not a deal breaker whatsoever.

I was pleased when I received this dress. It's classy and sexy!!
Usually I wear an 8 in dresses but the material is very forgiving and "holds" in the waistline. I wore the size 6 (46) and it was still slightly loose around the bust, waist & hips. Overall, I still liked it and my boyfriend kept showing me off!!!

Sooooo flattering!
I am normally a size 8 or 10, but went with a 6 (44) and it was perfect. The material of this dress is thick and stretchy and covers all the lumps and bumps. I have a large chest (34DDD) and sometimes have a hard time with dresses, but this dress was the perfect blend of sexy and classy. I wish I owned this dress!

Great dress!
All the reviews said formal affair and I was planning on wearing this to a wedding originally but changed my mind. I wore it to work instead and it was great. I'm an attorney and the only female attorney at my firm so I try to be conservative. The open shoulders and slit weren't to much for the office. I paired it with brown leather pumps. The length was perfect and the long sleeves allowed me to not wear a jacket while at my desk. The pleats hid everything and gave it great dynamic. The stretch in the fabric made it really comfortable. You could size down but I wouldn't if you're trying to wear it to work because it might make it to sexy. I didn't wear a necklace and I wore my hair up in a bun. I wore it out that night on a date with my hair down and black straps heels and changed my earrings to diamond studs. It was a great transition dress. (Sorry only took the one picture)

Better with Age
I wore this to a five year reunion, and was very pleased with the reception both the dress and I got. There is room for hips, and no Spanx are needed because of the strategic ruching. Very classy, but still sexy with the fit and front cutout.

Won't regret the rental
I rented this as a back up option for a wedding and it worked out because the other style was way too small!!! Perfect for any formal event and I love that it hid those awkward parts on my tummy. I was able to eat and enjoy myself without feeling self conscious. Overall good fit I normally wear a size 6/8 wore size 4

Extremely flattering fit- sophisticated and sexy!
I am 5'6", 165lbs, normally wear size 4/6 top and 8/10 bottoms so dress shopping can be complicated. This fit like a glove, stretchy so accommodated the pear shape well, got a ton of compliments. It's much more high-impact in person than in photos. Wish I could own this one!!

Amazing Dress!
I really enjoyed wearing this dress! I ordered a size 12 and a backup size in a 10. I'm usually a 12 but I ended up wearing the 10. The 12 fit but the 10 hugged in all the right places. I'm 6'2" and around 205, finding a dress that fits great is sometimes a challenge, but not this time! I wore this dress to a charity event and it was perfect. I received complements the whole time! The fabric is kind of stretchy which makes it more comfortable. I thought this dress was going to be a really thick fabric and too hot for an event in the summer, but it wasn't! It was perfect! Thank you RTR, I'll be back soon!

This dress was a show stopper!! I had so many compliments and felt so beautiful! Dress is made with a stretch neoprene type of material. Very flattering. It hid my not so good parts. I would order your size and a size smaller. You definitely want it to hug your curves.

Flattering cut! Beautiful conservative dress!
Last minute stop at RTR for a spur of the moment semi formal party while I was visiting Chicago. I had nude flats and a bra that could not be strapless to work with and the ladies in the store were awesome helping me find a dress that met my needs. This dress just killed it! It was phenomenal. Fits great, a lil stretchy, the cut in the midsection is perfect for hiding any excess tummy which I usually call my "food baby" after we have our multiple course meal at events like this. I danced the night away in it. Fantastic dress. Another from RTR that I'd love to make a permanent fixture in my closet.

Wish I owed it!
This was my first RTR dress and I was very happy. I ended up wearing the larger of the sizes I ordered. After having gained a little extra weight I was very nervous about the fit of the dress, especially around my mid section. I was planning on wearing spanks or something similar but didn't end up needing to. The fabric was thick enough to give things a smooth appearance but had some stretch and very comfortable. It was nice that the fabric of the sleeves was much thinner which made dancing easy! I highly recommend this dress. I felt like a movie star. The neck line was my favorite part! My only con was it was a little longer it fell right at my bottom of my knee.

Stylish and Age-Appropriate
Rented this for a Fall Wedding and it was perfect. I'm 6' and 160. It had a nice length and easy fit. The material is thicker than I expected except for the sleeves which were more lightweight. I have a smaller bust so the cutout didn't always show, which was fine. I wore the 46. The biggest difference was the larger size was loose around the shoulders. Beautiful rich burgundy color.

Sultry retro cocktail dress
This dress is phenom. I got so many compliments at the wedding I was just at in Baltimore. Went wonderfully with my hair and skin tone. Looked great with the gray pumps I wore and hugged all the right spots. I wore a strapless bra with this but you could definitely forgo a bra if need be. Would also recommend a thong or undergarment that doesn't leave lines as this dress is skin tight. It is thick and hides the imperfections well. On that note, it doesn't breathe- so prepare for that. I didn't wear spanx as this dress is stretchy and does offer some support without them and it would've been so hot had I done so. Would definitely wear this again and would consider buying it! Such a great dress. My stats: 5'8" (3-5inch heels shown in picture) 150-160 lbs 34D 27-28 in jeans Would describe myself at lean/athletic with curves (see pictures.)

Such a gorgeous dress!!!
I'm 6-mos post baby so my boobs are huge and my body is more jiggly than I would like. That being said I still want to look and feel sexy and glam on occasion. This dress is perfect because it's modest and sexy and it really just fits in all the right places. I went sans bra because every bra I tried peeked thru. The ruffle on the side is so cute and the peek-a-boo at the top just added it to its overall uniqueness. My husband kept saying how much he loved it. It runs large so size down! You won't be sorry!
