Conservative and feminine, with a touch of sexy.

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
This was the dress I originally ordered for a LBD bachelorette party. I am usually between a 4 and a 6, but after reading reviews I decided to go with a 6 and 8 because it seemed like the dress ran small. Shortly before shipment, RTR contacted me and said the 6 was no longer available for my dates and offered to send me the 8, as well as a different dress with 2 sizes. I ended up going with the 2nd dress, but I was glad I still got to try this one on. The 8 did fit, so I'm glad I ordered up. It wasn't skin tight, which I appreciated, but it didn't fit my upper body quite right because the zipper bumped out. That is due to my height, not a design flaw. But it was flattering and felt easy to wear. The waist tapered in at a lower point, making my short torso appear longer. The beading across the shoulders was very lovely and not tight; forgiving for a gal with broad shoulders. I am on the shorter side and the dress hit below my knees, which isn't the best spot for me, but the right heels would have elongated me enough. I would order this dress again and I would get the 6 and 8. I know the 8 would work, but I would be interested to see how much shorter the 6 is in length and if the zipper would still bump out.

It ran a little small. I usually wear a 4 but wore the 6. Dress looked gorgeous on. Really comfortable and flattering. It would ride up a little while dancing. Not a big deal though.

I wore this dress to a retirement party at a very elegant location. The dress was beautiful, I especially liked the peekaboo top part which gave an otherwise traditional LBD a little sexy look. I wore black spanx and bra underneath and I don't even see my straps in the picture. I got lots of compliments on the dress which hugged my curves in all the right places. Loved wearing it, very pretty!

Overall fit: True to Size

This was my first rental and it went great! The dress arrived earlier than expected and is a wonderful heavy material with beautiful beading at the top. The dress fit a little tight across my hips which are larger than the rest of my body so I had to pull down the dress a few times during the night but it was manageable. The size 8 was a little too baggy compared to the 6, so I went with the 6. For a holiday work party it was just right!

I tried this dress on at the showroom first and I fell in love. The dress fit like a glove. I was happy that it arrived on time and in good shape. The copy I received didn't fit quite like the one at the showroom, but it was still quite lovely. I really like Lela Rose's dresses. They seem to compliment the curvier figures. I would definitely rent another dress for a big occasion.

The dress I originally ordered was damaged, and this was my replacement. I couldn't have been happier. The RTR customer service was phenomenal. And this DRESS! Fit like a glove, but flattering, not tight. The detail is stunning in person. Photos don't do it justice. This was perfect for a fall rehearsal dinner. Lots of compliments, but I think the best was my husband's reaction. Wow. I felt beautiful, and loved the process. Thanks RTR :)

Luxurious Lela Rose

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress is fitted through the waist and hips. Spanx and a strapless bra are necessities for the outfit. It is a very luxurious dress with the beaded, tulle cap sleeves. The material for the sheath is thick but would easily work year round as it is not too heavy. I paired the Pave Pyramid bracelet and Southern Plantation earrings with it for a little sparkle. I have rented a lot of dresses from RTR but this dress is potentially my favorite.

Being able to wear a beautiful dress to a beautiful wedding in New Orleans!

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size

The dress fit beautifully. I am 6'1, and so I was worried about the length. It was perfect, and the beading was spectacular. However, there was a rip in the back of the dress when I got it. It was right about the split in a strange spot. I wore tights, so it didn't matter too much. However, I was disappointed, and if the tear would have been any higher, I wouldn't have been able to wear the dress.

Perfect chic LBD!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Other than my wedding dress, this was the best dress I ever had an opportunity to wear. It's classy, the quality of material is great and it fits really well. I wore it to my husband's xmas party and it was a great choice since this dress hits right above the knee and doesn't have a cleavage. It was very easy to accesorize too, since preety much any jewelry, any color shoes or clutch goes with it. To my suprise the top part had a very nice, black little beading all around that geometric pattern that I didn't notice when looking at pics online. I wore size 4 and it gave me just enough room left to squezze a good dinner and dessert without bursting the seams ;) The material is medium thick so it worked out well for a December weather. I would highly recommend this dress. I felt amazing whole night and am sad to give this back...

This was my second Lela Rose rental and I can't wait to rent another. I am fairly tall (5'11") with an hour glass shape and both Lela Rose dresses I have rented have fit like a glove. I rented this dress for an evening wedding and it was absolutely perfect. The geometric detailing along the chest makes the dress more interesting than most LBDs. It was a very classy dress with just a hint of sexy. I wish I owned this one.

This looked and felt like a really high-quality dress. The material is nice and thick. The beading at the top was the perfect twist. I think it runs slightly small - I'm usually a 4 or 6 and with this dress I needed my spanx for the 6 to look good (the 8 was a little too big).

I felt like Cinderella when I opened the box and tried on this dress. It really shows off your curves and makes you feel sexy, but in a refined way that made it the right choice for a work event. I wish all of my clothes fit this well. Contrary to the description, I would say that there is not much stretch in the dress so I would recommend sizing up for your second choice rather than down.

I usually wear a 0 or 2 in dresses and ordered this one in a 2. It is really gorgeous - good quality fabric and pretty beading at the top that makes it look even more special in person than it appears in the photos. Unfortunately the 2 ran large in the hips so I wore the other dress I had rented for the event. Size down for your additional size!

I used a regular bra with convertible clear straps, it was perfect. Lots of compliments from the well-dressed crowd. Very comfortable sitting, standing and dancing!

This is one of those dresses that looks fine on the hanger but INCREDIBLE on. I wore it to a cocktail-attire benefit with my fiance and his boss' family, so I was looking for something sophisticated but didn't want to be completely covered up either. I felt like a million bucks in this dress - The detail is stunning and length was perfect (I'm 5'5" and it hit an inch or two about my knees). I wish that I owned it, as it's one of those dresses that you can dress down and up to fit any occasion. Highly recommend!

This is a beautiful dress! It has a snug fit, with limited give from the fabric. Ordered two sizes, 6 and 8. The 8 felt a bit more comfortable in the waist and hips but was a tiny bit larger in the shoulders. Still a beautiful dress and a perfect choice for an evening wedding!

I wore this dress to a wedding and felt great the entire evening. I am 5' 6" 117 lbs and wore a 4. It is a beautiful dress, the material is thick but does not have much stretch. It is a snug fit especially around the midriff. Spanx underneath was a must for me.The length was perfect for me. The zipper is a bit difficult to raise and lower. I loved it and would rent it again.

I absolutely love this dress. I ordered another dress and when it didn't fit, RTR saved the day and got me a few other options for my black tie event. This was one of them. I was afraid from the photos it would be too conservative but it was just the right balance between classy and a bit sexy too with the sheer fabric and beading on top. The fit was PERFECTION - very tailored and fitted so definitely showed off curves but also hit in the right places and the thick fabric concealed any flaws. With sparkly shoes and earrings this dress really stood out in a sea of long dresses and I got so many compliments on it!

This dress hugs every curve. The fabric has a little bit of stretch so it was perfect for eating a big wedding meal and dancing. It also was rigid enough to hide the food baby. The difference between sizes is very minor so keep that in mind when picking your backup size.

This stunning dress was a back-up I had ordered for a film premier. When my first dress (also stunning but had issues with the boning) did not work out I turned to this beautifully constructed feminine dress. Alas, it runs small and even my suck me in hose and spanks could not keep the dress down where it needed to be. I needed the 6! Because my event was Saturday afternoon and this was Friday eve, the wonderful customer service rep called me back on her way home to check in with me. We both agreed it was impossible to ship another dress for my event and she graciously offered me a future rental as my primary dress could not be worn due to exposed boning in the bodice. This was the right thing to do--GREAT customer service and beautiful quality dresses for those of us who would rather rent for ecological and/or economical reasons. ps: I will rent this dress in the future in the correct size.

Rented this dress for a fancy birthday dinner with my parents. The beading detail at the top is amazing - the photos here don't do it justice. Really gave me a Mad Men sultry vibe - sophisticated and elegant. Great for showing off your curves - I wore some spanx underneath just to feel more streamlined because it was a bit body-hugging.
