I felt SUPER stylish!

I really fell in love with this dress and so did everyone at the wedding I attended. I literally had so many compliments and questions about where I got it. I thought the dress fit a little small, mainly in the bust. I didn't wear a bra with it because it was very tight on the top, I'm a 36c. It was extremely comfortable and flattering. Great length for a fall wedding. I would rent this again in a heartbeat!!

Pretty alternative to a black cocktail dress

The dress fit as expected and was a great length for my height (almost 6'0). I didn't find the need to iron the flowers down as others described. The only issue I had was the clasp at the back of the neck frequently came undone (was covered by my hair and didn't effect the fit/comfort). Fun alternative to a black cocktail dress.

Loved having the choice of dresses for the wedding activities.

Loved this dress. Perfect for a wedding that could be casual or slightly formal! Perfect when you aren't sure which way to go.

Fall Wedding

Fun dress that isn't too fitted and gives a shaping look. The length is a little long for a shorter person but once I had higher heels on it looked much better.

Prettiest neckline!

This dress is flattering and very forgiving in the belly area. I was able to wear a nude bra with it and you could hardly tell, which was great because I hate strapless bras. I'm 5'9" and the dress was knee length on me, which I was hoping for. I got lots of compliments and felt very comfortable.

Gorgeous Detail

This dress is everything attention to detail. The liner is fitted and the outside layer is loose. The flower and lace detail is perfection and the dainty keyhole closure in the back tops this dress off with beautiful detail. Pairs nicely with nude accessories. Can wear with or without a bra. No need for a necklace! Throw on a pair of simple earrings and bracelet and let the dress steal all the attention. LOVED this piece.

Great experience at the Style Studio in Soho

I needed a dress as the mother of the groom for a backyard wedding. I just happened to have a trip planned to NYC and was able to schedule an appointment with a RTR stylist. He spent an hour picking out dresses for me and helping me narrow my choice down to this beautiful dress! I also have several dresses in my queue for the next many events this year. I cannot recommend this service high enough. The stylist was so helpful. He never treated me like I was an overweight middle-aged woman He was so so kind!

Beautiful dress!! <3

In between a size 14 and 16, right now. This dress in a size 16 fit perfectly! The embroidery is gorgeous! I was able to wear a nude bra. I definitely recommend shape wear if you have a tummy problem area (I had to). Love this dress!

If you want a ton of compliments, rent this dress!

Rented this dress for a work Christmas party and got a ton of compliments! I loved it and it was very comfortable. The back of the dress is open and the button at the top was a little loose and it was pretty hard to zipper up. For your back up dress I would rent a size down.

Great experience

I fell in love with this dress but was afraid to commit to a specific dress so did unlimited to try different options. I got so many compliments on the dress even from strangers. The sleeves cut into my arms alittle if I lifted my arms but not bad. I had to keep pulling the slip down. I was able to wear a spaghetti strap camisole with support rather than a bra. I definitely will be using RTR anytime I have the need to dress up

Perfection!

I rented this for my cousin's wedding in March. The pictures on RTR don't do this dress justice! It's absolutely gorgeous in picture. I thought it was a lace designed, but the flowers are actually appliqué and give the dress that extra something. I received so many complements. My only complaint (which is not enough to reduce a star) is that the shoulders don't have much give- so if you're raising your hands up (like you just don't care) while dancing, it rises up. The lining is fitted, and snug on the hips, so if you're hippier, be aware, because the lining isn't very stretchy. But I loved this dress and would rent it again!

Beautiful dress!! The detail and color are lovely. I just didn't like the dress on myself. I didn't find the waistline flattering. I opted to not wear the dress.

Wedding Dress!

After trying to dance at my wedding in my big, beautiful, bustled ball gown it became quickly apparent that if I wanted to really cut a rug, I needed a wardrobe change! I'd rented this as a backup for my rehearsal dinner, but ended up wearing it at my reception instead! So elegant and detailed, it worked perfectly and looked gorgeous with our navy color scheme! RTR helped me get married comfortably AND in style!! The arms were the only part that felt like a 2, the midsection and hips weren't snug/formfitting at all.

Fit true to size

I loved the dress and wore it to a baptism. It fits true to size but definitely doesn't have any stretch to it. I have bigger hips so I had to pull it over my head but didn't fit tight. Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because the sleeves were kind of uncomfortable. I had time reaching for she things without it feeling like the dress as going to rip.

Compliments galore but problems with dress

I really like the look of this dress, but there were two problems. First, the beige liner does not lay smoothly and the " wrinkled" affect bothered me. I even went out and bought some shape wear thinking that the smooth texture underneath would solve the issue but it didn't . Second, the size 8 was actually a better fit than the 10, but it was sent with the only button to hold it closed in the back MISSING! That was annoying as it is a gemstone button that could not easily be replaced from my own button collection. RTR needs better quality control on outbound shipments. Having said all of that, I really did get a ton of compliments!!

Feelin' fancy!

Received so many compliments on this dress. I was an usherette for a wedding and the bride wanted me to wear this. It matched her color palette well and styles of the bridal party. The dress runs true to size and is comfortable. The lining has some give to it. I wore this with a backless bra I ordered from RTR. Only downside, you cannot wear a heavy peony corsage. We fixed it with a safety pin and material tape.

Three dimensional pulls you in

Fit wonderful. Was able to wear a nude standard bra. Was surprised that the dress was brown more than the nude it looks in all the pictures. I was also surprised that the dress was three dimensional. Some of the lace is applied on top as opposed to within the mesh. Beautiful detail. Gorgeous.

Stunning. So classy. Sexy, but sophisticated.

This dress is BEAUTIFUL. The bright royal blue embroidery looks so expensive and special. The netting around the neck is so dainty and the nude, peachy/taupe satiny lining underneath is so flattering and sexy. I normally wear a size 4 ( 5'7" 128 pounds), but following the advice of others reviewing this dress, I went down a size for my extra and ended up wearing the size 2. It fit like a glove. If you have a smaller chest and bigger hips, order a size down for your extra dress. If you are chesty, order a size up, but the bottom section might be too loose.

Gorgeous dress

The fit was good other than in the rib cage/waist was a little tight. The length was perfectly to the knee and I'm 5'7". The fabric was delicate yet durable. I paired it with nude sling backs and gold earrings for a Labor Day weekend wedding. I got lots of compliments that night as well as on pictures posted after.

Beautiful appliqué

Loved the beautiful appliqués on this dress, but it was just a little too much beige for my skin tone, which was basically the same color. I ended up wearing a different style.

Very classy for a fall wedding

This was a great rental for a nice fall wedding. I got lots of compliments from total strangers! The embroidery is very beautiful, and the dress itself is comfortable. I usually wear an 8 but sized up to a 10 since the lining of the dress had a bit of a tendency to bunch. Overall a great option for a more formal affair.

Dapper Day Fall 2017

I️ rented this dress for Dapper Day at Disneyland. I️ normally wear a 12 but ended up wearing the 14. It did dig a little bit into my armpits, but other than that was comfortable. There were a lot of loose threads on the dress but they were easily removed. I️ got many compliments and my husband loved the dress so much he told me to buy it.

So comfortable and cute

The dress is gorgeous. I ordered a size 10, one size bigger then my usual size based on other reviews. The material under the dress makes the dress a little "tighter". But by no means was it tight. It was very comfortable. I wore it to a wedding on the beach and it was perfect for the setting.

Beautiful Dress!

I rented this Marchesa dress for a wedding and felt absolutely gorgeous! The 12 fit nice, but since I have larger hips, I went with the 14. The dress wasn't a perfect fit in the back (too loose) but it did allow me to comfortably sit and dance! For reference, I am 5'3 and 175lbs.
