My dress made my night !

Runs true to size. Size 10 was perfect but the 12 fit more comfortable. The blue is lighter in person then in the picture. Overall the dress was beautiful and I received many complements. Thanks RTR!

Lacks Support

This dress was not the original dress that I had ordered - something was wrong with the system and I was unable to get the dress I had wanted for this event. Regardless, the stylist I spoke with was able to help me locate another blue dress (I was pretty much told that I couldn't wear black because that is what the bridesmaids were wearing). Let me start by staying this dress is gorgeous. Absolutely gorgeous. It was a wonderful weight for dancing and celebrating the marriage of two friends. The instructions say "nu-bra or no bra". This dress has zero support for the girls. I ended up using kinesio tape to keep them in place because you can't hold up 34Es with a nu-bra (even though they say you can). The tape showed a little on the sides (whatever). Also, if you have anything bigger than a B-cup you'll probably want some clear costumers tape to help keep the top up. There's next to nowhere to hide the girls and I was totally self conscious about them popping out the entire evening. Additionally, I received the "long". I felt the dress was still a little shorter than I would have liked. However, given that I'm just shy of 5'10", I was pleased that it wasn't any shorter. The train is s nice touch. Overall, I'm stuck between a 3 and 4-star rating on this dress. It came with some visible wear, but not so bad as that someone besides me would notice it... it IS a gorgeous dress, and is fabulously constructed, but it provides little to no support or way to stay modest. Given the cons of this piece, I would definitely be hesitant to rent any dress similar to this one in the future.

Gorgeous back! You'll need support up top.

This dress is gorgeous! I'm an athletic shape with hips, so I sized up and I'm glad I did. I was swimming in the top as a 34B. There is little support, as other reviews have said. I managed to wear a bra and just tucked the strap down in the back, which worked well for me. Great dress for dancing; I was comfortable on the floor all night.

Formal, elegant

This dress is much prettier in person. My husband said it was one of the most elegant dresses he's seen on me and loved the back. I ended up going with a different dress for the wedding as I was lucky enough to get two really great ones to choose from. I recommend this stretchy but curve hugging dress!

So gorgeous

I felt like the belle of the ball in this dress. Wore it to a black tie dinner and most other women were wearing black, so i opted for this navy dress to stand out a bit. OMG the gold lace overlay is sooo pretty! I wore my normal size and have a small chest so didn't have any issues with the top, although if I had a bigger chest it probably would have been tight. I did wear a shaper just to hold my tummy in all night, because the dress was tight enough to show faint pantyline rolls. I am sure it would have been fine without, but I was more comfortable in a shaper. I found the length was just about perfect with 3-1/2" heels.

Cinderella For The Night

Absolutely beautiful dress! This was my first Military Ball, and I had nothing to wear. I did not want to spend $300+ for a dress that I would only wear one day. I actually went with the Unlimited Rental and got three gowns. When I received them, I fell in love with all of them. I did a photoshoot with two of them and opted for this more conservative dress for my event. It fit like a glove and was just the right length with heels (I'm 5'4"). The color is a navy blue and the gold detail is stunning. Very high quality dress. I received lots of compliments that night. Love it! Thank you RTR!!

Great for women with curves

I wore this gown out to a fancy diner while on vacation and I loved how I looked and felt in this dress! The top is sexy yet not too showy for curvy women. The color is beautiful and I loved the subtle sparkle.

Loved the fit, comfort and ease of the dress

Perfect for a black tie wedding. I am normally a 4, but read reviews and rented a 2, which fit perfectly. I have no shoes on in the photo and the dress hit the floor, making a low heel a great option for my 5'6" height. I did go with a strapless bra, which you could maybe see a bit in the back through the lace, but at the night wedding, no one noticed.

Beautiful dress. A little tall for me, but I made it work. The Oscar de la Renta jewelry gave it that extra kick that the look needed.

What a huge hit this dress was! Amazing. It fit like a dream, was so elegant, and it was comfortable all night. Pellegrino stopped me all night long to compliment me at the gala I attended. I love this dress!

Stunning, Comfortable, Glamorous Dress

The dress fit beautifully! I am often worried about dresses fitting over my boobs (36F) and needing to wear a bra. With this gown I wore a convertible bra with clear straps crisscrossed and they were invisible. The dress has a heavy feel to it, so it looks stunning throughout the evening. I received so many compliments. I may have to rent it again when another black tie occasion comes up!

Can't go wrong with navy & gold

I was worried the dress would be too tight and got both the 12R and 14R. I'm bigger in my lower half so waist and hips can usually give me some trouble. I was so happy that I had room to breathe and move in both areas in the 12R. The length with 3-4 inch heels was perfect for me. Overall very pleased with this dress even though it was showing a bit of wear. The only thing that was off for me was that it bunched up and stuck out in the back on me, perhaps my torso was a little too short and/or I didn't quite fill out the top a lot so there was extra room. I just made sure to keep my long hair in the back to help hide it.

THIS DRESS!!

I rented this dress for my husbands Recruiters ball and it was seriously amazing! It fit perfectly. I am around 5ft 4in and 170-180 pounds. I get very self conscious about my belly (2 kids and 2 were c-sections)being too noticeable, but this dress made me feel like there wasn't anything there! I am a 38 DDD, so the only con I would have is that I had to push "the girls" in a bit to get it zipped. But I didn't mind it too much because it held them in nicely and wasn't uncomfortable in the least bit. I seriously cannot say enough about how great this dress is. I actually forgot about it and had to call RTR to add it to my order and they were SO accommodating and amazing. A Fantastic experience I've had doesn't even give justice to RTR! Will absolutely rent this dress again as well as use RTR for all my formal needs!

One of a kind

True to size, literally. I am 5'8" with an athletic straight build and wore the long with 4" heels. The length was perfect and the dress gave me curves I don't have! I wore this for a black tie fundraising event. It's a heavier fabric and style and is perfect for a fall or winter event. One of a kind dress - I received compliments all night long!

Night at the opera!

Great dress, lots of compliments! Very pretty and flattering on and was perfect for an evening at the opera. I'm 5'6" and it hung perfectly at the ground with 2" heels. The back is very flattering and you can wear a strapless bra without it being noticeable through the lace. The subtle gold detailing is pretty and it works well to have gold accessories. I did end up wearing the size 8, not the 6 even though I'm usually a 6, it was just a bit more comfortable around the mid-section. Definitely recommend this dress!

Customer Service for the WIN!

My original three dresses I chose and rented arrived on a Friday, event was Saturday.. one was too big, one too small, one too long.. I am 5 ft. 9 in. and I ordered the long of each dress... after calling customer service, we got one figured out through my "hearts" and the representative I spoke to chose this dress, and WOW am I glad she did!! It was so beautiful, I didn't do 5 stars because as the night went on the layers began to separate a little bit.. so the lace layer was shorter than the satin blue layer, but I got so many compliments, especially on the back.. I felt amazing in this dress!!

Black tie wedding

This dress was really pretty and comfortable. It was a little bit big on me, but not noticeable. The 0R was too long though (I'm 5'3") with 3ish inch heels which was a little annoying, but served its purpose as a beautiful black tie wedding dress!

Compliment after compliment

I wore this dress to a wedding. I had strangers coming up to me all night and telling me my dress was stunning. This was very comfortable and only rubbed around my armpits towards the very end of the night. I am 5'10" and the long was a great length with 1 to 2" heels.

Loved it so much I rented again for engagement photos!

Fit perfectly! I'm 5'1" and the dress was a perfect length with 3" heels. Even in flats it wasn't really too long. Fit perfectly in the bust (36C) and the arms, wasn't itchy or too hot. Easy to dance in, walk in, and sit in. The back of the dress does require good posture though! The way the sheer fabric lays, the back can be a little unflattering if you slouch!

Amazing gown for a black tie wedding

I felt so beautiful and got so many compliments in this gown when I wore it at a black tie wedding. The metallic fabric and lace finish make this gown feel incredibly luxurious. I'm shaped like an hourglass with wide hips, and I usually buy size 8 jeans. The dress is fairly stretchable, and when I tried a size 4 on at the RTR showroom, the dress fit like a glove.

Loved my first RTR experience!

This dress was my backup dress and fit perfect. I'm 5'2" 140lbs and wore 3 inch heels and it was a great length. Being a 34DD, it's hard to find supportive dresses but I didn't even have to wear a bra, which never happens! The lace did rub a little in my back above the armpits but was a minor thing. Cant recommend this dress enough.

Beautiful dress and very comfortable

I rented this dress for a formal party. It is so beautiful and elegant, yet it almost feels like you're wearing a nightgown because it's so comfortable. No bra needed, which is good because a bra would ruin the back silhouette. It was a little long, even with heels, but because it pools out at the bottom it looks like it was designed to drape on the floor. I absolutely loved this dress and would rent again.

Not good for short torso

I rented this dress and another style for a wedding - thankfully the other style worked for me. The front of this dress fit nicely, but the back did not work at all - the sheer part did not lay flat and it bulged in a very unflattering manner. Did not wear.

Gorgeous dress!

Ended up not wearing it because it was too long (I usually wear regular length and this was a 2L, long). Other than that, the dress is gorgeous!!! Beautiful detail, fabulous shape and fit. The fabric has just enough weight and structure to hug your body in the right places. The detail on the back calls for an updo hairstyle to show it off. Would absolutely rent this again in a 2R (my usual size!!

Solid dress for a conservative wedding

Nice dress. A little bit of mother of the bride thing going but worked well for a conservative wedding. I say conservative because it was for the wedding of a work client so I had to dress appropriately. There was slightly too much fabric around the top of the dress so there was a little bit of bunching in the lace area

Fit like a glove. I felt elegant and beautiful in this classic piece.
