This dress is gorgeous! It does run slightly small, so I would recommend sizing up in the back up. It is fitted in the bust and the waist, but the skirt is loose. I wore a strapless bra with this. It would great for a summer black tie event! I felt amazing in this dress!

gorgeous dress!

Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
i rented this dress to attend a black tie optional wedding. it was a gorgeous dress and i got compliments on it all night! if you are below about 5'5", i would recommend wearing at least a 4" heel. i am 5'3" and wore about a 3" heel and it was still long; the slit in the front helped with the long length, but i still had to tuck the dress up at the waist about 2" in order not to step on it. also, you can tuck it up like i did, but you have to be careful of the slit because it is in the middle of the dress! also, the belt is not adjustable.

Everyone kept telling me how I looked like a Disney Princess

Size worn: 8L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is breath taking. The picture of it doesn't do it justice, it just flows so well when you walk. Loved wearing it and I couldn't believe how many people commented on it. Everything about it is just so unique. You will need a strapless bra and most likely a steamer (mine came pretty wrinkled). I had to pick a long size due to availability and it was definitely long even with 4 inch heals. The size listed 8L was using the UK sz, fits true to size. Only snug around rib cage otherwise very loose fitting and flowy. Hope you can enjoy this dress as much as I did :)

This is such a unique dress, it's both cool and elegant at the same time!

Absolutely in love with this dress. I tried it on in our new showroom, and I plan on renting it for my next wedding! It runs small in the bodice so I would recommend sizing up for your backup size. I wore a 6R and I am normally a 4. The snug bodice made my waist look tiny and the loose flowy skirt was really comfortable. I am 5'8" and with high heels I probably would go for the long size. This dress is a total stunner, I can't wait to wear it!!

Lets just say my FB comments are still coming in! I kept getting warned not to upstage the bride--I did my best.

Size worn: 10L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was absolutely amazing and the compliments did not stop all day--they even continued on facebook after I posted pictures! This dress will make you look and feel like a goddess. Note that the sizes are European so a 10 is really an American size 6. I wore the long because it does have a little more room than the regular at the waist (which does not give), but since I'm only 5'7", it was a tad bit long and I kept having to make sure no one was stepping on it. If you are my height and wear at least 3.5 inch heels, the long should be fine.

I ordered a size up in this dress (US size 10) based on reviews but I think the 8 would have fit a bit better. The belt was too big to wear, so I wore one of my own. The dress is extremely comfortable and you don't have to fuss with anything. I wore this to an outdoor wedding at a vineyard and it was the perfect style. It is sheer so I wore a nude biker short from American Apparel underneath. I would highly recommend this dress - it was a hit!

he perfect formal, fun, flirty, neon trending dress there is!

Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: True to Size

What is not to love about this dress? Its unique color and draping makes it an obvious choice for renting. It will turn heads and you'll get so many compliments. The only odd part of the dress was the sleeve, it didn't really sit right, so I tucked it in. The belt was too, probably because I have a short torso and was intended to sit lower on the waist. If you have big boobs, you definitely want a size up, trying to squeeze boobs into this dress isnt fun! But I still loved every minute of this dress!!

My boyfriend said I looked like a showstopper in this beautifully unique gown!

Size worn: 10L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This is the most amazing, unique dress that I have ever worn. Guests at the wedding were complimenting me all night long and asking where I got such a gown. I got my normal size in the European translation and it fit pretty generously, maybe too generously because the belt was a bit big on me. I wish I would've gotten the regular length because mine was just too long for dancing, even with 5" pumps. The color and fabric are absolutely divine. The fabric is sheer though, so be aware of this if you plan to wear in sunlight.

Every woman I spoke to at the wedding complimented the dress.

Overall, I really liked this dress. The flow of the dress is beautiful and I received many compliments on the dress. The dress I ordered was way too big on me and I couldn't use the belt. That was my own fault, because I ordered it two sizes larger than my normal size. My size wasn't available for the date I needed it and I was so set on this dress! But still, I'm glad I rented it and it totally worked with fabric tape and a cardigan. I would suggest ordering it in your normal size though.

This dress flows perfectly as you walk and I received compliments on it all night

Size worn: 12L
Overall fit: True to Size

The belt fit larger than the dress because I have a small waist, but it looked just as good worn without the belt. Fits true to size and the long is definitely LONG so if you're on the edge of maybe needing the long it might be best to go with the regular length. I'm 5' 8" and was wearing 4.5 inch heels and it still got stepped on a few times throughout the night.

This dress was really stunning and unique. I got SO many compliments on it throughout the night.

Size worn: 6L
Overall fit: True to Size

This dress photographs really well, and the neon yellow and gray is a really gorgeous combination. The belt is also a really pretty touch. The dress is very comfortable also. If you're tall get the long, but I still had to wear heels with it. The one issue I had was that I thought the bust ran a bit small and I wasn't able to wear my strapless with the 6 although it fit fine everywhere else. If you are bigger up top you may want to order a size up so you can wear a strapless. This is the best dress I've ever rented on RTR, you won't regret it, it really is absolutely beautiful.

RTR Fail

Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I loved the dress. Loved loved loved it. It fit me very well. It was long but I could've have gotten away with it by wearing 5-inch heels. I wasn't able to wear it to the wedding, though. RTR failed me and sent me a dress with a ripped hem and a size 10 belt. Unfortunately, I had to leave the city for the event the following morning, so there was nothing else to be done but wear a different dress.

RTR FAVORITE!

Size worn: 8L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this gown to a formal wedding of a friend. I received sooo many compliments throughout the night, including from the bride and bridal party. I told them all about RTR and how amazing it is. I originally ordered this dress in the 6L only because the 8L was not available for my backup. When it arrived I couldn't zip it all the way (this dress is tight in the bust area so size up for fuller bust), I frantically called RTR since the wedding was the next day. They were able to track down an 8L and ship it to me overnight along with a second choice dress in 2 sizes as well! They 8L worked out perfect, however I did end up wearing the belt from the 6L because it fit my waist much better. After ordering this dress I received an email from RTR with a "Mystery Bling" offer. For an additional $10 one of the stylists selected jewelry to go with this dress. They sent me the Lulu Frost Crystal Cruz Pyramid earrings which were just the right amount of jewelry for this vibrant dress.

Perfect fit, but runs long even for the regular. Flows, unique, and eye catching.

This was the most unique dress I had rented, but ended up not picking, given the length was too long even with 3 inch heels. The bust area was tight, so can imaging how women with bigger chests would have a very hard time closing the zipper. Otherwise, was a very pretty dress.

This dress stopped traffic and I received so many compliments it was awesome! RTR team members were very attentive. I am tall and I am glad that someone from the RTR team contacted me telling me to go with the R size, this gown runs very long even for me who was 5'11 in heels! I didn't want to send it back!

This dress is so sheer and it feels like a parachute. I ordered the Regular and it seemed felt like it was the Long. Looks better in the picture. Definitely an "Editorial Dress".

Missing in Action!

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This was my first choice for a formal fundraiser and first experience with RTR. (this was an experience that happened last Spring but I am just getting around to reviewing for this experience....I did review the dress that I actually wore last May) Unfortunately, i was informed 2 days before delivery that the dress was damaged from a previous rental and they would not be able to rent it to me. They called and left a message on my home phone but I did not listen to the messages till the day of my rental delivery. When I opened the box and found the dress missing, with another dress for a replacement, I was surprised! After listening to my phone messages, I discovered that they did say they wanted me to call but since i never received the message till it was too late, they made a replacement choice in a similar color. The replacement dress was nice, it fit but I was disappointed that it did not have the "punch" I was looking for. Fortunately, I had ordered a second back up dress that I liked better than the replacement and ended up wearing that one. It fit perfect and was the look that I wanted for this occasion. My first experience ended up working out well because of my backup dress order. (It is good that they offer this option at a discounted price) I think RTR tried to full fill my order by calling, but I do feel that they should make more of an effort to talk in person instead of leaving a message. I have used RTR 4 times now and still like the service. You do have to be really smart about picking a size for yourself (reading all the reviews and chatting with a stylist...however it can take a long time while waiting for phone support!). Ordering a backup size and dress is always a good option with your order.
