Gorgeous gold dress!
This dress was beautiful for my wedding shower, and was my first RTR experience. Fit was true to size and nicely accentuated in the waist. The extra white tulle around the waist made it seem "ethereal" and had a whimsical feel. Loved the gold. Highly recommend!

Perfect for our Rehearsal Dinner
I wore this dress to my Rehearsal Dinner and loved every minute of it!! I wore the bigger size as the material is not forgiving and I have a large bust. I just didn't look right in my regular size. I got compliment after compliment....I want to buy this dress!! Rent it!!

I wore this as my reception dress at my outdoor wedding at a lake in central Idaho.
Normally I'm more of a size 2, but the 4 fit me best. The arms were a bit tight as well, so if you are going for Michelle Obama arms like I am, you may want to test drive this dress first. The dress worked great for our rustic-vintage themed outdoor wedding, and people loved the tutu-esque flair, which matched the theme of our tutu-wearing flower girls. I wore cowboy boots with it, and people loved it.

Stunning!!! Major Compliments
I loved this dress!!!! It was so classy for the Legacy Reception I attended at my college, and I got a lot of compliments from it! I would definitely order a size up though (especially if your bust is larger), I am so glad I did! The ribbon in the waist also has NO give! Just a forewarning. Overall, an INCREDIBLE dress to wear but just beware of it running small!

I got this dress for my tea-party themed bridal shower & it was perfect! I got so many compliments!
I was concerned that this dress wouldn't fit, it was only available in a size 2 and I typically wear a size 0. After reading the reviews, which said it ran small, I decided to give it a try and am so glad I did. It fit like a glove! There were very minimal signs of wear, which considering this dress is mainly lace and tulle was shocking how good of condition the dress was in!

Tiny, Beautiful Dress
I ordered a 4 and an 8 because 6 wasn't available. It's a good thing it wasn't available because the 6 would not have fit me. There is no stretch to this dress, so if you're too big for it there's no squeezing in there. I steamed it to make the tulle perfect and I felt like Belle!

Gold, lace, tulle--perfection
Pretty dress! Up close you can tell it has been worn.. it has pills on the fabric, but not noticeable to anyone around you. I'd say it runs small, as I'm usually 2-4. I wore the 4 and the gold band around the waist has no give, it was pretty snug, but still fit. The top was a bit big on me as I'm not very busty, but it worked fine with a strapless padded bra. I may have worn the 6 if the tulle wasn't completely sad compared to the 4. It was short, and not as fluffy as the 4. The size 4's tulle had long pieces that made it super fun and flirty, but the dress remained uniquely elegant for the party. Paired with a simple strappy gold heel since the dress had a lot going on... no need for a flashy shoe. Obviously I took my heels off by the end of the night and put on fluffy socks. :-)

Dreamy Dress That Runs Small
It was a dreamy dress and I received a ton of compliment during the night. I felt special. The size is much smaller than I though - I usually wear sz 4 and already sized up given the reviews. But I ended up wearing sz 8. I was happy that I ordered the backup size.

I rented this dress for our Holiday photos. Other than zipper issues, it was great.
I'm busty, so I automatically ordered a larger size since the pricier designers tend to use less material. I read the reviews about the zipper being an issue, which was definitely the case. It kept getting caught in the same location. I had to lay on my stomach with little pressure on that area in order for my husband to zip me up. But the dress and the photos were a hit.

Fancy, feminine and fun!
I am 5'1 and about 118. I ordered the 2 and 4 and ended up going with the 4 because I have some booty :) I wore this after my wedding for our very small reception dinner. It was perfect and I still felt wedding-y! I have yet to be let down by RTR!

Bridal Tulle
I rented this dress for my bridal shower because I didn't want to wear white, but the tulle made it look bride-y which I liked. It was unique and the neckline was beautiful, but the color was not good for me. The dress is a dark, yellowy gold that blended right in with my skin and hair. I got lots of compliments but didn't feel like myself in it. This dress would be beautiful on someone with dark hair and olive skin-tone.

I wore this for my rehearsal dinner, and the fit was perfect!
I was worried the tool would make the dress to poofy, but it was fitted at the top and waste. The tool just gave it a little bit of volume towards the bottom and back.

Gorgeous dress
This dress was perfect for my small wedding party. I rented a size 4 and a 6 and I ended up wearing the 6 because the 4 came with the tulle all teared up. But all in all great quality and awesome fabric

Fit perfectly! Great for someone who is petite. Wore to an awards show and was complimented the entire evening! Doesn't look as great on the hanger but once I put on it was beautiful!

My backup dress.
I was super anxious about my first RTR rental, so I rented this as my backup dress. I should have listened to the reviews and gone a size up because it did seem to run a little small. It is a beautiful dress that I might re-rent in the size 6 since I never wore this one.

The perfect combination of pretty and fun; a tutu for adults!
I got compliments on the dress all night. It was very tight when I first zipped it up and I was worried about dancing, but it loosened up a little bit as the night when on.

I was floating the whole evening!!
I was a bit worried about the color since I get washed out in muted/blush tones, but this is a gorgeous, warm gold. The airy tulle made me feel like a princess! Truly a special dress.

A truly beautiful dress. Received TONS of compliments on it.
I ordered this dress in an 8 and 10, and ended up going with the 10 since the 8 was a bit snug. Definitely need a strapless bra. I wore this to an out-of-town wedding and had the dress mailed directly to the hotel and forgot to bring a strapless bra so ended up going braless. Paired it with the Whiting and Davis Gilded Lattice Clutch, Slate and WiIlow Solar Flare earrings, and the Ella Carter Ashley Necklace. I walked around all night basking in compliments. I highly recommend.

Uniquely beautiful dress that should work for diverse body types.
I selected "runs true to size", but I wore the larger of the 2 sizes I received. (Maybe I would say it runs just ever, ever so slightly small.) The dress is unique and really gorgeous. While it may have brought the eye towards the hip and thigh area, it also obscures those areas with the tulle. I tend not to go for dresses that are fitted in that area; this was a risk that paid off in spades. People raved about it and I think I looked great. Be really careful with it, though. One of the dresses I received had a snag in the lace (another factor in me choosing the larger size) and the zipper is a little tricky. I don't think any of the available Body Type descriptions are accurate for me, so take that data with a grain of salt.

I wore this dress for my bridal shower. It was a beautiful dress. Perfect for the occasion!
Fit a little bit snug in the bust. A little bit more tutu then I had imagined.

Tulle uneven and hard to pull off aesthetically
The underlying gold lace and bodice was beautiful even for someone who doesn't normally look good in gold but the tulle was uneven and looked as though there were gaps in it. I believe there's another dress on the site that is similar to this one without the tulle and I would suggest it wearing it instead. Very happy with my other dresses though!

Beautiful dress but not the best on Asian skintones
I rented this as a backup. The 6 fit like a 4 in a different dress of the same brand which was odd. The dress is gorgeous but washed me out with my fair Asian skin tone. This would be gorgeous on someone who has tanned or darker skin, I think.

wonderful amazing dress i felt like a fairy princess
this dress was AWESOME. I was nervous to try at first but I am so happy I did. I cannot say enough about it. From the mintue I put it on I felt beautiful and I got compliments all night. I felt like the prettiest girl at the ball. It covered all my "flaws" and accented what my assets. It was super comfortable and I never felt like I had to adjust anything. As for fit, I had to go a size up from my normal size, but it was mostly for comfort and more room to dance. It was poofier than on the model (which I loved). If you are the fence RENT THIS DRESS, you wont regret it.

Beautiful and unique rehearsal dinner dress!
This was a really fun dress for my rehearsal dinner and "welcome" drinks. Originally, I was a little bit nervous about wearing it since I was worried the tulle skirt would be too poofy or costumey. I first tried on the 4 but the tulle was in bad shape - it was torn off in places and hanging weird. The 2 fit better and was in perfect shape, and as the night went on I liked it more and more. The colors are beautiful, the lace overlay is gorgeous, and the tulle adds a unique and whimsical twist to the whole thing. I got tons of compliments and everyone kept saying I looked like a fairy princess. Overall, another great RTR experience.

Not flattering
This dress is beautiful, but it did not look good on me. The tulle on the skirt poofed out making me look bigger. I'm normally a size 10 also, but the size 12 just fit me perfectly. Maybe i'll rent this again when I lose a few pounds!

Wore this dress for a swanky NYE event, it is a total princess dress!
The top part fits snugly but is very flattering, I love the lace! The bottom definitely poofs out a lot, I don't usually wear this style but I loved wearing it for the night! If you're looking for a sexy dress though, this isn't the one for you, but it is definitely very pretty and adorable!

Cute. Couldn't zip up.
It's a pretty cute dress. But it runs small. I wasn't able to zip up all the way so I didn't end up wearing it to the event (which was perfectly fine because RTR's ridiculously amazing customer service had sent me this and two other dresses after a little issue with the original order). The top part of the dress was actually really lovely. The gold and sheer was flattering. Wasn't crazy about the tulle of the skirt, though.
