Elegant!
I usually wear a 6 but ordered a 4 because it was all that was left, and it fit like a glove! I could still dance in it without too much tightness. Received many compliments, and felt sexy and classy. Definitely recommend!

Gorgeous Day, felt extra pampered in a new-to-me fancy gown. Lots of compliments.
Typically a size four in dresses, the size 6 dress fit quite snugly. I wasn't uncomfortable, but definitely aware of how tight it fit. Definitely size up one size when choosing. Otherwise, it was a stunning dress and went really well with my green eyes and red hair! :)

Lovely backup dress
This was my backup dress choice but I was so sad not to wear it to anything! Extremely classy and flattering -would also be great for fall or winter event as it's a pretty warm material.

Loved the colors and lace.
This dress is beautiful! I am short, 5'1 and I didn't feel like it was too long. The arms are a little tight so I would size up for back up if you are worried about that. I could wear the 4 but I went with the 6 for more arm flexibility. Got tons of compliments and felt great in the dress all night!

This dress is perfectly suited to balance between formal and semi-formal events.
I am 5'3", 98 lbs, and a 32 A with a sturdy but petite frame. The fit is snug in the shoulders. The smaller size (2) fit better overall (especially with the length and in the hips), but — because I was worried about tearing the lace — I wore the larger size (4) as a precaution. Otherwise, the dress fit according to the fit guide on this site. The dress was much more of a true jewel-tone, with subtle gold threading. I was not sure if the event I was attending was formal or semi-formal, and this dress was the best because it really would have worked in either situation. I loved wearing it, and highly recommend it!

I love this dress! They were out of the backup size 8, so although the 6 was a bit tricky to zip it fit perfectly. It was so comfortable for dancing at my friend's wedding and I received so many compliments:)

So many complements, the details are beautiful.
I usually wear an 8 or 10 and I wish I had gone with a 10 on this one, but I made it work with some Spanx. Got tons of complements all night long and very comfortable.

This dress is a dream... light, airy, yet has vibrant, striking colors.
Wonderful fit. Be advised, though-- the threading on this dress is more gold than silver. The model is pictured with silver shoes, but gold matches much better. The colors are more rich in person... I still get compliments on this dress!

This dress was so beautiful and comfortable, I didn't want to return it!
I was nervous because this was my back-up dress, but luckily it was true to size and it was so comfortable. I got so many compliments, the design is so beautiful and exotic. The only issue I had was that the hook in the back kept coming undone since I have pretty narrow shoulders, so I ended up having to bend the hook a little so that it would stay hooked. The dress is not very padded in the chest area, but it was enough to wear without a bra, which added to the ease and comfort of wearing this dress. Overall, I would rent this dress again in a heartbeat!

A beautiful dress with exquisite detail!
This dress is incredible, the lace detail is so stunning in person. It did run true to size, but the arms were the tightest fit. I wore this for my husband's work function, where I knew I wouldn't be dancing, but if I were wearing it to a wedding, I would have worn the size 4 to give my arms more room to move. The sheer lace on the arm is very delicate, so order a size up if you are going to be dancing a lot.

This dress is beautiful in person - the gold lace detail is more subtle than I thought it would be. It's snug on the hips but comfortable throughout, and the cut is very flattering on the waist. Compliments all night!

Gorgeous dress!
I rented this for a cocktail party. I did not end up wearing it because it was slightly snug in the chest and tummy area. I normally wear a 4, so I felt this one was cut a little small. The length was a perfect above the knee. The lace and color was so pretty. Would definitely have worn it if it was just a little looser.

Wow! Beautiful, classy, sexy - perfect fit!
First, I must say that I've rented many dresses from RTR in the past, liked every dress, and always had a positive experience. This dress is THE most beautiful dress I've ever worn; I have never felt more beautiful than when I wore this dress. The dress is even more beautiful in person. It shows enough skin to be a little bit sexy, but is so classy at the same time. I wish I could just buy it and keep it forever! I wore this dress to a black tie optional fall wedding and received compliments all night. The fit ran true to size. As others have commented, the zipper was a little stiff, so you may need help zipping it up. The dress fits very snuggly where it needs to (I was able to go braless), but gave me plenty of room in the waist so I was able to eat as much wedding cake as I wanted (ha!).

Bust area fit perfectly. Lace detail was very pretty. Color is a subdued green with hints of gold on the lace. Length was slightly below the knee. Appropriate for wedding rehearsal dinner / mixer.

A perfect dress!!
This dress was a home run! As a first time renter (and having recently lost 45 lbs), I was concerned about fit. This dress was true to size in my opinion. Being a tall girl, I was also concerned about length, but this dress fell perfectly at the knee. I heard compliments all night! I felt like a million bucks!!!

The picture doesn't do it justice. The color is bold, the lace is delicate and the fit was perfect.
This dress fit like a glove, it hugged you in the right places, without being too revealing. The neckline really accentuates and frames your face in pics, and again, the color and lace was just splendid. Will be renting this dress again.

Seeing the ear to ear smile on my brother's face on his wedding day. #priceless
I recieved SO many complements! I am 5'2" and the dress went just past my knee -- which ended up being lovely. I have a short torso, where I the lace bunched a bit at my natural waist. However, when standing up tall, it worked out well.

This dress was elegant, unique, and flattering. I got a ton of compliments!
The only issue I have with this dress is that it is tight up top so, if you are above a B cup, I would suggest getting a size up from what you normally would. I ended up going without a bra and losing that layer was enough for it to fit and it was still tight enough that I had plenty of support. Aside from that, it fit perfectly and was a very flattering cut.

Had so many compliments on this dress!
Had to wear the size up because the shoulders were tight. I wouldn't consider myself to have very broad shoulders. The 8 fit nicely, but I just wanted to be comfortable so I went with the 10 so that I could dance and have fun!

This dress looked and felt amazing!
The colors and details are really gorgeous. I got the 2 and the 4 - there was no question the 4 was a better fit. My measurements are 33-27-35. I wore spanx for a smoother fit. I left off one star because the lace was starting to look beat-up.

Spectacular! Stunning! Sophisticated!
I tried this dress on during a visit to NYC RTR store and fell in love with it. I waited for the right occasion, a destination wedding in Hilton Head. Couldn't have found a more perfect dress! Colors are subtle yet rich with some shimmer in the gold thread lace. Men and women were stopping me coming out of the ceremony to compliment the dress. Fit is true to size, I wore strapless bra but you could probably were a bra with transparent straps.

Great dress for a backyard wedding.
I am usually in between a 0 and 2 and wore the 2 because the 0 was too sung in the thigh/leg area to be comfortable walking around in. This dress requires a strapless bra. The 2 was a little loose in the bust on me (I am a small 32B and even smaller in a strapless). The color is beautiful in person (the blue is not too bright). The dress was slightly shorter than I expected and hit me where it hits the model (I expected it to be closer to knee length since I'm only 5'5"). I wore flat gold sandals with it, but it would also go well with nude or gold pumps. This dress is not too formal and great for a summer wedding.
