First time renter

This dress was perfection! The detailing and lace were so delicate and beautiful. I really wish I could keep this for forever. I wore this for an Army Ball(Ranger Ball) and I got a lot of compliments. I would definitely rent this dress again.

Beautiful dress but runs large!

Both dresses were brand new with tags still on them. Beautiful dress but definitely runs large. I'm typically an 8 and even the 6 was a little big on me in the waist area. Because the dress was a little big, the mesh panel would fold so I had to continuously adjust the dress to smoothen it out.

Great, unique dress

The embroidery and lace on this dress is beautiful and gives it a formal look despite the simple silhouette. The mesh panel in the midriff gives it a nice bit of edgy style. Per some of the other reviews, it can fold over a bit weird, but I think it's one of those small things only you notice and not anyone else. It's practical - easy to move in, not too hot not too cold, not too much skin but still interesting, a nice pop of color. All in all a great pick. I also liked that it seems like it is not a super popular option - after trying on two other dresses with hundreds of reviews (this one only had like 5) - this dress was in much better condition and felt much more unique.

Beautiful dress. True to size

Wore with nude strapless bra. Did not have any issues with the mid portion folding or bunching like I had read in some reviews. Was perfect color for a winter wedding. Got plenty of compliments. Details on the dress were very beautiful. Would rent again

Perfect in every way & so many compliments!

I rented a dress by the same designer from RTR for another event last year so I was pretty confident about the size, but I ordered an 8 just in case. I'm a 4/6 and the 6 fit perfectly and was true to size. Comfortable all around, even when sitting. I thought it might be itchy, but not at all! Felt like a princess and got so many compliments! Perfect for so many occasions. Would recommend to anyone!

Show stopper!!

I absolutely LOVED everything about this dress. I am larger chested so I sized up and it fit great. I was able to wear a regular nude bra without it being noticeable. I am 5'4" so the length was perfect for me so it might be short on someone with legs. The details on this dress are just gorgeous. I felt amazing in it.

Great Christmas dress

To be honest I was a bit nervous about this dress as I don't like my stomach & so was unsure of the sheer panel. I didn't need to be - it was very flattering & easy to wear. Bear in mind that it's a little sheer throughout so you can't wear black tights with it as you can see the waistband of the tights through the dress

Didn't end up wearing - True Hourglass figure should wear the downsize of what you typically wear

I am a 4/6 typically and needed the 4. It was an okay fit everywhere other than my waist. A 4 would have made it perfect

Beautiful, runs large

The details and color of this dress were phenomenal! Stunning in person. I ended up not wearing it because something about the color and lace made me feel that it had more of a holiday look than something appropriate for summer. Actually ran a little large... I'm usually between a 10 and 12 and I think I could have probably worn an 8.

It was beautiful and comfortable!

This dress was beautiful yet very comfortable. I am normally a size 12 but did rent a 14 because that was the size available at the time. It turned out that the 14 fit perfectly. I highly recommend this dress!

This was my backup dress

This was my back up dress because the one I wanted wasn't available at the last minute. I was excited until I tried it on, if your a girl who is curvy in the back this dress is not for you. The dress zipped up nicely but the accent snaps over the zipper made it look like the dress didn't fit when I snapped them together. Very disappointed.

Cute but very true to size!

I rented this dress as part of my Unlimited and after reading reviews, decided to size up as I as not getting two sizes. I wish I had gone with an 8 (or even a 6). This dress was very true to size, if not a little large I thought. Because it was a big on me, I still wore it but wasn't the most comfortable. It kept shifting around during the night. That being said, the details of this dress are amazing and it is very beautiful.

Im thick with 38DDD bust. The 12 fit nicely! Not always easy to find dresses that fit my chest.

I didnt have any issues. Glad I got the smaller 12 size with the 14. 14 was comfortable but the 12 fit better.

Fit my curves perfectly - but a little challenging to get in by yourself

I rented this for an award show/dinner and it was perfect. Small red sequins throughout was the right amount of glam. I was worried the middle section would look weird, but I ended up liking it. Only tough part was getting this on myself - there are 3 snaps on the lower back. Other than that, loved it and got tons of compliments!

Too cutesy

Pretty fabric and style concept. seems to run large. Fit well but didn't flatter. Proportions were off. Nice fabric. Quality construction. Too cutesy for my taste. Mesh does not work on tan skin tones, beware! Probably better off with the black version.

Stunning

I rented this dress for the holiday & it's perfect for the occasion. Probably should wear a better strapless bra because my boobs look saggy. Otherwise, the fabric is comfortable & the length is perfect for me (5'3"). It fits perfectly on me even for my thick waist. Would love to own one of her dresses one day.

Didn't work

I didn't wear this dress. It was a bit short and with the mesh around the center it felt a little bit too much like an ice-skating costume.

Didn't work for me

This was my backup dress which I did not end up wearing. I am usually a 10/12 depending on how short the dress is. I am 5'10" and the 14 was very short in the back but pretty loose otherwise. I would have been able to wear it but probably would have been self conscious all night. I didn't love the nude section in the middle and the fit just didn't work for me.

Mesh panel was a surprise!

Dress was cute, but the mesh see-thru panel in the midsection was an unwelcome surprise. Made the dress look younger on me than I wanted, and though it was cute, I just didn't like the seethru panels. Boo.

Just ok

Overall I think it was a cute dress, but it wasn't appropriate for the event we were going to. I didn't realize there were sequins on it when I ordered. The sheer in the middle was interesting, but it didn't feel like it added anything to the dress. The color was a very bright red which also felt a little too intense for the dinner we were attending. Overall the fit was fine.

Pretty dress but odd mesh at the waist

The dress was very pretty and fit well except for the waist. The nude mesh didn't fit tightly so it looked odd. My skin was darker than the nude mesh which also looked odd.

Cute but ripped

The middle sheer part is kind of strange- didn't end up wearing it because the lace in the back was ripped. Could be good if you're a little edgy, and the dress itself was not scratchy or too restricting.

I wore this to a Christmas cocktail party. I felt fabulous in this dress!

I'm usually a 4, wider in the hips, but was comfortable in a 2 because of the A line skirt.

This dress was very fitted throughout the midsection and I would suggest going one size up from your original size. I am a size 2 and the size 4 fit me like a glove. You should consider doing a strapless or a nude bra. However, this dress is so pretty and I think it's perfect for a fall event. I will be renting this for my Christmas party!

Comfortable, flirty and modest!

This dress was a backup dress selected by RTR when the size to my original selection was not available. IT's a beautiful color and feels extremely comfortable. Not itchy or heavy. I didn't wear it because I had another dress to select from, if not I certainly would have. It is not curve hugging, the nude part in the middle is not forgiving if your wear full body spanks, but overall a beautiful dress.

So pretty with a hint of lace and sparkle...

I did not wear this, but tried it on. I think I could pull it off being 43, but it was almost "too young" looking for me. Otherwise, stunning dress.
