Even though my original dress was unavailable, RTR was super accommodating!
Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: True to Size

When the renter previous to me had not sent back the DVF dress I had originally requested, RTR sent me this STUNNING dress, which I ended up wearing to my senior prom. I usually wear a 10, so I was delightfully surprised when the 8 fit. As the previous review says, the color is much deeper - more like a colbalt/blue violet, but beautiful nonetheless. I wore 3'' heels and it just brushed the ground, for a perfect length. I would most definitely rent this dress again!

In love with this dress. I've never felt like I belonged on a red carpet until I wore this dress. I felt so confident and people reminded me all night what a gorgeous dress it was. Wish I had another occasion to rent it for!

This dress is STUNNING! The drapery is so elegant and it's a red carpet type dress. I felt gorgeous all night and nonstop compliments from every guest at the wedding. Wore size 2 and it fit perfectly. It ran slightly long so definitely wear a good size heel.

Not 1 of dresses I picked - beautiful dress, looked awesome until I tried zipping it up! :(
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
The dress I have as my 1st choice was not available but RTR called me up & sent emails until I got back to them! Because of the colors in the wedding & the brides request that no female wear black I was lost as to what to pick! The extremely helpful RTR girl suggested this dress which I don't know how I had over looked in the 1st place! She had it express overnight & the dress actually arrived to my cuz's house before my plane even landed! It was fabulous until I went to zip it up. Halfway up is all I got. I couldn't zip it passed my ribs & nevermind my boobies. So sad! It did fit the bride fabulously except for the length - she's was too short. If you are a 38C & my height this dress will fit. Will be renting this dress in the future in a bigger size!

Color is better than pictured, Unfortunatly, did not fit in bust, this was a size 12, draped beautifully, but if you are over a D cup (38DD), I don't think it provides remotely enough coverage.

Just GORGEOUS! Rented two other dresses for a black tie wedding, but as one of them was out of stock, RTR was kind enough to loan me this dress as a backup instead. As previous ladies have said, the color is deeper, almost blue/violet. ...But beautiful nevertheless. One warning for other tall ladies though: being 5'9", the Long length dress was barely long enough for me -- only touched the floor when I tried it on barefoot, so had to wear 2" heels for the event so it wouldn't look too short. Even given that, I LOVED the dress and got so many complements. Thanks RTR!!

Beautiful dress! The color is deeper than shown here. Be warned, though, the long is very long!
