Lovely dress for all ages
Super pretty dress with forgiving details in its design. I wore this to a black tie wedding and it was very comfortable to wear till the wee hours of the morning.

Stylist Review!
Photos do not do the detailing of this dress justice! The navy lace underlay provides gorgeous texture, while a shimmering gold floral pattern overlay definitely adds that "wow" factor while remaining elegant and appropriate for any event. This style is great for any cup size and can be worn with a strapless bra, nubra or no bra at all. The fitted waist is very flattering on most body types. However, I would size up if you worry about fit in this area. The fabric also has some stretch, so rest assured you will be comfortable in this style. This dress also has a unique, scalloped hemline that is tea length in the front and cascades to the ground in the back creating a high-low style. Add the Ella Carter Landry Earrings for an effortlessly classic look!

Great dress! Photos don't do it justice. Night was made when someone told me It was their fav dress
Fits true to size. I wore this 20 weeks pregnant and the waistline hit in just the right spot. So comfortable and fun for dancing. Would definitely rent again! This was actually a backup they sent me when my original had a broken zipper. The RTR staff are amazing!!!

THE DRESS! It is amazing; I wish I could have kept it. I received so many compliments!!
Perfect fit. I wore a 0R and it had room, but not to much. I'm 5'3. The back was a bit long, even with 3 inch heels. My heels kept getting caught in the lace.

I didn't end up wearing the dress to my event, but it was fun to try on!
The dress I originally ordered wasn't able to be shipped so I was sent this dress as an alternative. It was truly beautiful but ran too big in the waist so it looked frumpy. I think if I ordered it in a 0 it would have been perfect. I'm almost always a size 2 so i was surprised it didn't fit.

The dress was gorgeous. Beautifully made. Gorgeous Color.
The dress fit perfectly and is beautifully made. The blue is more of a deep sapphire verging a little to the purple but still really a very beautiful blue. The gold is a softer and more subdued gold than is representative in the hot. Very sophisticated. The fabric had some give so even though it was fitted as it should be through the waist and shoulders it was not snug. Plenty of room through the skirt and belly and I tend to be pretty round through that area and it looked fabulous. I got a ton of compliment from both men and women which is always a good sign.

Elegant, classic, and stunning head turner!
This was a replacement dress, as my original rental was no longer available for my date last minute. RTRs customer service was fast and so helpful in contacting me to fix the problem. In the end I ended up with a better dress than my original pick! No picture does this dress justice. It is SO STUNNING in real life!!! Runs just a tad large, and id imagine if you are short it may be too long to wear with out a very high heel. I'm 5'7" and had on 3" heels and the length was perfection. Comfortable, conservative, elegant and head turning! Use a nude strapless bra and you'll be set! I highly recommend this beauty!

Possibly my favorite dress I've ever rented
I loved wearing this dress. I ordered one size up, as I was warned it could be tight in the waist, which is sometimes an issue for me. The color is gorgeous, and the gold is really pretty too. The sleeves are flattering. Loved it!!!

Graceful and gorgeous
This dress rides the line between cocktail and black tie perfectly. In person, you'll notice the various layers of lace and fabric that combine in the most exquisite way. It definitely looks expensive, and I received compliments from wedding guests of all ages. Wear it with heels because it's a bit long, and it dips in the back so you might need to go bra-less (I did).

This dress is very romantic and elegant at the same time.
The gold lace is very beautiful. the front hem is actually not much shorter than the back, so the feeling is more that you have a train in the back. Love the open lace back.

Very versatile dress
The best part about this dress is how versatile it is. I wore it with pretty flats to an afternoon garden wedding in LA and it was perfect, and I got tons of compliments; I could also see wearing this with dressier accessories to a black-tie gala and still feeling like the belle of the ball. Really, just a gorgeous dress. A couple warnings: - The description says "Recommended for women 5'2" to 5'6"" and I completely disagree. If you're 5'2, even in heels this dress will be dragging on the floor. I would definitely recommend this for taller women. - It does NOT run small in the waist, as another reviewer said. I'm usually a 4, but I got a 6 as backup because it was that time of the month and I was pretty puffy. No need-- the 4 was still pretty baggy in the waist. I would actually recommend getting a size smaller for your backup size if you prefer a more fitted waist.

Perfect wedding guest dress
RTR sent me this dress after my original pick was no longer available. They were super helpful and quick to respond. But this dress --- incredible fitting, very well made, uber flattering, perfect mix of sexy and classy necessary to attend a wedding (let's be real). All I can say is DO IT. Made me feel like a princess.

Stunning!
The pictures do not do this dress justice! I rented this dress for a black tie optional wedding after my first choice was unavailable at the last minute and I could not have been more pleased. It was unique, elegant, flattering and I was able to wear a strapless bra with it which was a huge plus. I generally wear a size 4 in dresses but since I have a small waist the size 2 fit perfectly. I received compliments all night and felt incredibly beautiful. I would rent this dress again in a heart beat!

Gorgeous dress that photographs beautifully.
My most favorite dress I ever wore! I thought it was purple from the previous photos but it is blue and gold. Very comfortable and has stretch. I'm 5'5 and in the 4R I didn't need big heels. Worth every penny!

Got amazing compliments all night long with this dress!
This is a stunning, sophisticated piece of couture. I wore it to a black tie optional wedding and received compliments from more than 4 different guests on how unique and flattering it was. I had gold pumps which matched perfectly and minimal jewelry. I'm 5'7", but the back of the skirt was still a little long and my heels got caught in the lace a couple of times. The top was also a tad large on the shoulders. An easy dress to dance in and impress in!

I did not wear this dress to my formal event, but it would have been perfect.
I received this dress as a back-up. It is very striking and fit true to size. The high/low hemline works well with different heels. The dress is elegant, unique and flattering.

Elegant and glamorous!
I typically wear a 2, and the 0 fit me perfectly. The back of the dress just touched the floor in kitten heels. I suggest going bra-less if possible. The back dips a bit, and I could see that a bra might peak out. I felt perfectly contained without one. All in all, this dress is just beautiful! It was a replacement for the one I ordered which was damaged and couldn't be sent. I am so glad I got to wear this instead. I only wish I owned it!

Unique style, comfortable dress
I rented this for an awards event related to work. This was my back up, and I ended up not wearing it, only because I didn't have someone to help me zip it up at my hotel! Otherwise, it fit very well and was elegant. It was a little long for me, even with the heels I had with me (about 3-inch), so shorter renters might want to plan for tall heels!

Perfect dress for a black tie wedding!
This dress is gorgeous! The pictures do not do it justice. I am 5'2" and I wore the 2R and the dress touched the floor with 3 inch heels. The 4R looked just as nice, but the 2R was a little more form fitting and flattering. The nubra actually worked the best although I was very hesitant whether it would be supportive. It was perfect and the low back is a beautiful touch! I received so many compliments the entire evening. I would highly recommend this dress!

The fabric is gorgeous! This dress is incredible comfortable. I am a curvy size fourteen, and this accentuated my waist without making my hips look large.

Gorgeous dress, gorgeous details!
I usually wear a 12 but have a large bust so rented this in a 14 and it fit perfectly, if a bit baggy in the stomach area. Looked so glamorous! You might be able to get away with renting true to size if your bust is normal or smaller. the high/low hem is stunning!

This is one of the most beautiful dresses I've ever worn!
The fit was great, and spanx made it even more comfortable. The color was gorgeous and dreamy- I paired it with navy heels which worked great. I couldn't believe I didn't need a bra- I always need a bra! But this dress worked perfectly without one. I got tons of compliments and felt truly beautiful! Thank you RTR!

The dress is fitted to the waistline, but flares out for a loose fit along the hips and legs. Very light and easy to wear.

A dress that matched the venue and the husband's tux
This dress is a work of art, fitting for a wedding we attended at an art museum. My mom was old-school and always told me that it is inappropriate to wear black to a wedding (suggesting mourning) though times have changed, the navy blue color of this dress fit the bill. I am 5'5" and the back of the dress definitely requires heels. The waist nips in nicely to accentuate curves in an appealing way. One other guest told me it looked like the dress had been made for me! This dress is relatively conservative but it doesn't feel frumpy or old. The embroidery and color is just exquisite. You barely need jewelry. I had rented drop earrings but ended up skipping them and wearing a necklace that followed the neckline of the dress.

This is such a beautiful dress, and it photographs extremely well!
This dress is gorgeous; no doubt about that - I felt beautiful in it. Size wise, I am usually between a 0 and a 2, and the 0 fit comfortably; snug, but not constricting. I'm 5'5" and I found that the back was a tad too long for me (granted, I wasn't wearing any kind of heel) - it seemed to be dragging on the floor just a bit. The only complaint I had about the dress was the sleeves: I had rented this dress to wear in a recital, and I found that the sleeves restricted my motion and made it quite uncomfortable to play; the seam of the sleeves would dig into my upper arm. I decided to use the dress in a photoshoot instead, and am quite happy with how the pictures turned out!

The dress was elegant and graceful with the gold embroidery. beautiful and got lots of compliments!
I got both the 10 and 12. The 10 fit, but a little tight. The 12 was perfect, and very flattering on- it was forgiving to the hips. It was perfect for someone of my age- sexy but not too revealing or embarassing. It was flowy and graceful. I did not have to steam or iron it.

Lovely dress
This was my back up for a gala. I did not need to use it but it would have worked great. It is lovely in person and fits true to size. I am 5'7'' and in heels had no problem with the length. As expected, the style is forgiving around the thighs and hips. There is an additional lace underlay above the sheath and under the top layer which was not evident in the photos and added substance to the gown. Very pretty.

Loved this dress! Got so many compliments.
This dress fit true to size. I normally wear a 10 or 12 and went with the 12 for ease of wear. The 10 fit but was a little tight across the shoulders and I knew I would be dancing. Being large busted I did wear a bra with it, a stick on one with no back, worked perfectly. I am also 5'9" so the length was perfect. I wore heels but into the reception changed to flats and the dress barely skimmed the ground. I would definitely wear this again. Perfect for all ages!!!

I wore this dress to the ballet and received many compliments. It's absolutely beautiful in person.
This dress is both glamorous and comfortable. Really easy to wear. Since I'm short, the back trailed on the floor, but that still works as long as you're careful.
