Stunning

I'm only 5'4" and this dress was short. It didn't even hit the floor without shoes. Tight through the hips and baggy at the waist & bust. Many compliments & felt beautiful.

Showstopper!

This one has it all! Class, style, glam, everything! The fit was perfect (after sizing up) and it definitely hugs the curves. I chose this for a formal holiday gala and could not have been happier. I am 5'6 and the regular length was just right. The detailing on this dress is truly a work of art and I highly recommend for anyone looking to make a statement. I wore pale gold accessories with it and was sad to send it back!

Beautiful but runs small in hips

I usually wear a 16 but this dress was incredibly tight around the hip/butt area so I couldn't wear it. Beautiful material.

This dress was stunning. I got many compliments- even from people I didn't know. It ran a little on the small overall- I would definitely size up. I am 5'3 and wore 3.5 inch heels and it was the perfect length- which means it must run short. Would definitely rent this one again! My husband kept calling it a head turner :)

Fit like a glove!

This dress was absolutely amazing. I went to the NYC Flagship store and worked with stylist Moriah who was so extremely helpful- she pulled dresses I would have never picked for myself. All night people came up to me asking me about this gown. Definitely recommend!

My favorite Mardi Gras Ball Dress Yet

I loved this dress! All my friends loved this dress! My boyfriend even loved this dress! I am chesty (currently wear a 36G) and this dress was perfect because I was able to wear my regular black bra and it looked like part of the dress! I was able to breathe (even when I sat down)! I wore flats considering I would be doing lots of walking and dancing that night and the length was perfect! If you wear heels I'd go with a longer length unless you want to show off your heels. I have arms that are not the smallest at the moment and I loved the sleeves on this dress because they covered them up so beautifully. I also like how this dress shows off my curves( so did my Man) and gave me more shape without squeezing me tight)Felt so skinny! Jewelry is not necessary with this dress so I just wore hoop earrings. I am going to rent this gown again! Ps I rented the falling roses gown and this was my back up gown. I ended up wearing this one because it fit better over all. I ended up loving this gown even more!

Best rental so far... STUNNING

We rented this dress for her dates senior prom. Elegant, sophisticated, and stunning. No words can describe how beautiful it made her feel. We ordered the long even though she is only 5'4". She wore a pair of 5 inch heels and it hit the floor perfectly. The arms were a little itchy, and snug, but she said she didn't mind because the dress was just that beautiful....she didn't care. Best rental so far. This was our 6th time renting and another already scheduled for her prom at the end of the month. We LOVE RTR! The process is so easy!

Beautiful dress!

Of the two sizes I ordered, I ended up wearing the larger size. It's a fitted silhouette and was a little snug in the chest area. But overall very comfortable, the length was perfect, and I received many compliments. I wore 2 1/2" heels.

Outshines any other dress!!

This dress was overnighted to me and arrived the day before prom and turned out to be more perfect than my original rental. I am about 5'1-2 and wore 4 1/2 inch heels and the skirt dragged on the floor by about a half inch but when I pinned the waist to be tighter, the whole dress lifted and it hit the floor absolutely perfect with my heels. A bit itchy but the look is completely worth it. Embellishments easily get snagged on my bracelets and corsage and the zipper is a little though to zip up and down so be careful. Other than that, highly recommend no doubt.

A stunner!

This dress was true to size and fit perfectly for a pear shaped body. I typically have issues with length being too long and I didn't have that issue with this dress. I wore this for a Great Gatsby party and everyone was in love with the dress!

Pretty but too small

I rented this as a back-up for a mid-summer wedding. It ran too small and thank goodness it did because it was heavy, hot and itchy for a Los Angeles July wedding.

Very Flattering, Perfect Length

I chose this beautiful gown to wear to a black-tie wedding. I loved the silhouette, and with 5-inch heels, the length of the dress was just perfect. I wore platform heels to avoid a stiletto heel getting caught in the back of the dress while I was dancing/ going up and down stairs. This is a favorite!

This dress was fantastic. Good fit, comfortable fabric underneath. I rented it for a work gala and it was just perfect for that occasion. I got a lot of compliments throughout the night.

Gorgeous gown with beautiful details

This is an exquisite gown with beautiful attention to detail! I honestly did not take a second look at this dress when I initially saw it online. However, I was blown away when I saw it at the DC boutique . I went shopping with a friend who was attending the same event, I had already reserved another gown online - but when we saw this I had to try it on. It felt so good and gave more shape than the online photo. It's not matronly at all and I felt so chic. ;) I'm usually a 2 or 4, but the 2 was perfect! I'm 125 lbs, about 5ft6 - it just brushed the floor with 3 inch heels.

Beautiful gown

I rented this for gala. The fit was spot on, except a bit long. Working with temporary hem tape was a nightmare- and the skirt has three layers. The fabric has no give. That, along with the large pattern works to hide fivurw flaws. I was very comfortable all night.

Even more beautiful in person!

I rented this dress for a charity gala and it did not disappoint. I sized up even more than normal because my arms run larger and I wasnt sure they would fit based on reviews. There also were no long lengths in my size so I knew that sizing up would offer more length. I typically order a 12L and 14L. The 16R was just right. I've rented several formal dresses from RTR and they never disappoint, but THIS one was by far the most beautiful. There were audible gasps and endless compliments. I highly recommend it!

Stunner - you won't be disappointed

The dress is a head turner and I received compliments all night. I think it would look good on a wide variety of body styles. I wear a size 6 pants but up to a size 10 top. I would suggest selecting your size based on your bust. I went with the size 10 and it was perfect. I am 5'5" and 1 1/2 inch sandals were perfect. As others mentioned you cant really raise your arms in the dress but it didnt bother me. I felt so special in this dress!

PERFECT!

I rented this dress for a black tie affair & it was PERFECT! It's mostly true to size BUT there is basically no give, so you may want to size up ESPECIALLY if you're curvy (I'm busty & have some hips although not super hippy & I JUST made the cut lol). Also, I the long length was the PERFECT length (I'm 5'4"). It covered my shoes but wasn't too long to impede my stride. I would definitely rent again!

Gorgeous and well-constructed dress

I rented this in 6R and 4R both fit well for me at 5'3 and 130lbs but I ended up wearing the 6 because it was a bit more comfortable in the arms and bust. They fit true to size, but I would recommend sizing up if you have a large bust. The embroidery is stunning in person and the quality is impeccable, I even considered buying it!

Many women during the wedding made a point of seeking me out to pay their compliments on this gown

Attended two first, a black tie Jewish wedding. Amazing fit and random women throughout the night made a point of coming up and complimenting me. I felt so glam! I am tall and hate heels, so the length was perfect for a pair of black patent leather Valentino flats.

This dress was PERFECT!!!

I am very small and petite, so the 2R fit me really well. I am short (4"11) so it was a little long on me. I had on 6 inch heels so it didn't drag the floor. I received soooooo many compliments on this dress!! Definitely a show stopper!! I would highly recommend this dress for any formal event or wedding!

Beautiful quality and fit

I loved this dress and got so many compliments. It was FITTED and I am not used to finding dresses that for me in the waist and the hips. Usually if the hips fit, the waist is way too big. But not this one - it was perfect. I did get spanx for my hips just so I could move a little better. It's beautiful embroidery and fabric.

Vintage glam

The dress is true to size as I am nearly always an 8. Occasionally I'm a 6 so I suppose you could say this runs a little small? But pretty accurate in my opinion. The dress was very pretty and I received many compliments during my company's winter gala. I love how slimming the cut was, and the sheer sleeve was very elegant. I have to advise that the sleeves are a bit itchy as the metallic embroidery is a little stiff, and you feel it on the inside of the sheer sleeves since there is (obviously) no lining there as a barrier. Also BEWARE if you are 5'7" like me, you are definitely going to need to order the long version of the dresses. I ordered several dresses (backup styles and sizes) and most were only available in regular length ... to my surprise nearly all of them were above or only to my ankle!! So a good 4-6" too short for any heel, and still a good 2-3" too short for flats! Even one other style in a long was too short for me! I couldn't believe it.... so keep that in mind for any RTR dress rental. I do have to commend RTR's excellent customer service... I called frantically about the dresses being too short and they quickly overnighted me two more dresses! You have to return the others right away, but they let me keep one backup size just in case the two new ones didn't work.... and they didn't!! So I truly appreciate the understanding and helpfulness.

Didn't wear...

The dress is definitely quite striking in person. However, the fabric was so itchy and was quite uncomfortable. I did size up but I couldn't wear it because it had a gaping hole on the side of the seam near the outer thigh. I didn't contact RTR because I didn't care for any other options that I would potentially ask for them to send me. Wore another dress and was incredibly pleased with my backup choice.
