Beautiful dress unfortunately unable to wear, this was my back up size and it was too tight on top.
The bottom of this dress was fine however the top was tight. The lace like detail is exquisite. Really wanted to wear this dress but size 8 was returned late or damaged so I had to wear an alternate choice.

Great dress
It fit great, was comfortable, and a nice quality dress. The sleeves were a but strange fitting because I'm a shorter person, but for my first rental it was great!

Perfect Wedding Dress
This dress was so pretty. I was a little worried I wouldn't like the top but it was much prettier in person. The fit of the dress was snug but had some give to it. I am a 2 and this fit perfect in a 2. I would not have been able to go larger or smaller. This length was an inch or too longer than I would have liked but it just made it look more elegant. I would definitely rent again.

I usually wear an 8 or a 10. This was a little snug for an 8.

Everyone loved it!
it was the perfect size and everything! It did run a tiny bit small- I ordered a size 6 and 8. I'm usually a 8, sometimes 6 if it fits better, and both fit just about the same. I went to the symphony and it was perfect! The only problem is sitting and your dress riding up just a tad bit. Otherwise, it was delightful!

Didn't wear but pretty dress.
This dress did not come as my original size, but came in my backup size. Backup size was too tight in the chest and RTR sent me another dress as my original. A beautiful Carmen Marc Volvo dress that I wore to my occasion instead. I gave it a 4 because it was a beautiful dress, but just a little too plain, the beading had no shine just a really matte appearance.

Classy and timeless!
This was my first RTR dress and I loved loved loved it. Fit like a glove. The 2 fit as well but was just a little too snug for me to feel comfortable dancing so I went with the 4. It is the length of this dress that I was most taken with - hitting right at the knee for the perfect Mad Men-era feel. The skirt was fitted like a pencil skirt but with plenty of room for dancing and movement. The lace on the bodice and sleeves was soft and comfortable and didn't have any snags or pulls. You can't tell from the photos, but the lacework has the teensiest bit of metallic sparkle to it - perfect for an evening event. If I could buy this dress I would. If you need something with timeless understated elegance this is it - I got so many compliments last night. I can't wait for my next excuse to rent!

Great dress; however, it is very tight and not forgiving. I didn't wear this because I felt like it was showing my little tummy. Otherwise, very pretty, classic with a twist, great quality.

Perfect LBD for a variety of occasions!
I rented this dress for an outdoor, vineyard wedding that I was coordinating and I couldn't be happier with this selection. The sleeves were a bit looser than the rest of the dress, so if I had any complaints, that would be the only change I'd make. The fabric was thick but breathable and held up to a busy day of setting up, coordinating moving parts, and dancing into the late night hours. I received so many compliments on how lovely the dress was and how great it fit. As a mother of two very young children, I'm always looking for clothing that accentuates my good areas and hides those that I'm working on fixing--the gathered torso area of this dress was perfect for hiding my mommy tummy and the snug fit helped highlight a lovely hourglass shape. I was nervous that the top wouldn't fit around my bust (I am a 34E), but it was perfect. The length was fantastic as well since I wanted something that hit just above my knees. This dress is perfect for many events since it is so easy to dress up or dress down. It can be worn with a variety of accessories and flatters a variety of shapes. I was disappointed that I had to send it back-this would be one I would purchase to keep in my closet as the perfect little black dress.

Unexpectedly hot humid day. This dress would have been better for an evening in door event
I actually did not end up wearing the dress, because it was just a bit too tight. The dress itself was better than expected. Well made, great material, had some stretch, and the ruching helped, but I was a bit self conscious about the tightness in derrière, which was no fault of the dress! I would absolutely recommend this dress, and probably would have worn it if it was an evening event.

Elegant!
This dress is form fitting, a little heavy, and made with some give. If you are looking for something a little more conservative, this is the right dress. I am 5'1 and it hit below my knees, but not oddly. Great dress!!

Amazing fit!
I wish I could own this dress! Absolutely amazing fit. I had a work event at Saks Fifth Avenue, and it was going to be a very stylish crowd. I was so worried about what to wear. I felt like this worked perfectly! This was my first RTR experience, and I was beyond happy.

Lovely and well-made but WOW tight!!
This dress was made of beautiful material and was wonderfully made, but I was baffled at how tight it was on me. Unwearably tight. I'm an 8/10 (usually wear an 8) and the size 8 was so snug on me I couldn't justify wearing it for my work event. Considering the garment is described as running large I was somewhat confused. After I put it back in the envelope for a quick return it occurred to me that perhaps I'd been sent the wrong size, but I forgot to check. Still, it's a beautiful dress - I'll just be sure to size up if I try it again!

I absolutely loved this dress! It was worn to my son's wedding.
It wasn't the dress that I had originally chosen, but when the ones I ordered didn't fit right, this one was suggested as a replacement. It was overnighted to our hotel and arrived in time. As the mother of the groom, it was the perfect dress for my son's wedding. He was also pleased that I matched his black tux! The only thing that I would have changed was the shoes that I wore. Because the hem line is below your knees, higher heels would have looked nicer. But, I had no time to go shoe shopping!

I wore this for a friend's bachelorette party and received tons of compliments on it!!
The most difficult part of this dress was using the zipper. I couldn't zipper it by myself so I had to ask a friend to help me when I parked my car. The zipper doesn't have a tiny hole to use a hanger to help either. (She also had to help me unzipper it before I went home. Other than that, the fit was perfect for dinner and dancing. It wasn't tight and I felt comfortable eating a sit down dinner in it. We danced for hours and I never had a problem with it riding up on me or making me too hot.

Classy, elegant.
After reading reviews I decided to go ahead and order a size up - thank goodness I did! The dress does run small but I think that is due to the form fitting fabric. It was classy with subtle sparkle in the lace details. As always with RTR it arrived wrinkle-free and ready to wear.

Perfect cocktail dress
This is a great choice for women with height who want to highlight their waistline. It is comfortable, easy to wear and flattering. Especially nice length on tall women, as it hits just below the knee. The lace is very pretty, and has just a hint of metallic thread that allows it to catch & reflect light. I paired it with a bright & bold pair of patterned heels and never received so many compliments.

So many compliments! Everyone asked me where I got this dress from! I proudly answered RTR!
The fit for me; a usual size 10; was tight, but a good tight. Any bigger, and this dress wouldn't have looked as good. It hugged me in all the right places. I had to wear Spanx to smooth it out, but I wasn't uncomfortable in the slightest. Given that I wore it to a wedding, I was able to eat, drink, and dance in it without worry or being too uncomfortable. Zipped with no trouble. The chest was tight, and the lace at the top showed my cleavage. Because the lace is minimal; though, I never felt like it was inappropriate, even for a church wedding. I paired it with the Kate Spade NY Garden Party Necklace for a light tough of sparkle. Wore a nude BCBG heel that was only about an inch high because the shoe didn't draw a lot of attention and it allowed me to dance all evening!

I wore this to a bat mitzvah service. The dress was perfect for the synagogue: understated, lovely
The size 4 fit me like a dream. 34C- 26- 36' 120 lbs, and almost 5-6". The dress is sophisticated and really pretty.

Photographs beautifully.
Didn't wear this. It is well made and beautiful, but just too tight. I was very uncomfortable in the 6 and the picture is with Spanx. Afraid I couldn't eat, drink, or sit. Looks better in pictures than in person. RTR was very accommodating and helpful with my return.

Beautiful dress
Dress runs small which was excellent for my small frame. I loved this dress and it was one of my back up dresses, but I chose to wear another dress. Material does not give, but is very silky feeling, the lace kinda felt like it was a little scratchy. Overall it was a stunning dress!

Beautiful dress - very forgiving!
Fit true to size, but I prefer to wear things on the snug side. If you're unsure, I would recommend sizing up just in case. It is a fitted dress in the first place, so going up one size might be more comfortable, although I was happy with the fit of the size I wore. The lace shoulders/sleeves were beautiful and made the dress conservative without being stuffy or boring. The length was perfect for the event I was attending, came right to the top of the knees (preferred length for me at 5'8"). I would definitely wear this again and would recommend it for others!

I rented this for the memorial service for my husband. It was perfectly conservative and stylish.
This dress wasn't available in a 4, so I took a chance and got a 2 and 6. The 2 fit well, a bit snug-but true to size. Beautiful quality and forgiving.

sexy and classic, very form-fitting
My boyfriend loved this dress, but I didn't end up wearing this because it was very form-fitting and I just didn't feel like drawing attention to my midsection. Maybe if I had ordered the next size up if would have worked, but it wasn't available. RTR customer service was fantastic though, and found me a different dress in 10 minutes and overnighted it to me, and that other dress was a hit.
