the compliments i received were outstanding....the fit was soooo comfortable
fits perfect! wore it to a new orleans saints party (who's team colors are black and gold). the dress is so classic that it never came off too "literal" or "cheesy" for matching the team colors.

So cute, would rent again!
I loved this dress. Rented it for a bachelorette weekend in Vegas & received lots of compliments. The metallic gold fabric added just the right amount of sparkle. Very flattering too!

I wore this dress for New Year's Eve, it was super fun and easy to dance in!
The dress fit great, very true to size. I am on the shorter side so it was the perfect length for me as well. Lots of the pictures have it with a bow belt around the waist (that doesn't come with the dress), so I added my own!

The perfect New Year's Eve dress!
The dress was even more beautiful in person. The top portion is slightly more gold than it appears online, which I actually liked better. I got compliments all night and love the way it looks in my pictures. However, the dress was quite large on me. I really could have used a 00, but luckily I had a belt that matched perfectly so I could cinch the waist in.

I wore this to Palm Beach to celebrate my boyfriends birthday and our 1 year.
The fit was odd. The 6 fit true to size, but it was short and that made it hard to sit in. The top was almost too big, and the dress as a whole was stiff. I have muscular legs and while I am not fat, I def have curves... perhaps this dress is made for a more petite frame. It was cute and different, so I enjoyed wearing it overall.

Perfect for my 10 year HS reunion...classy, yet fun!
I usually wear a size 2, but because this was a shift dress fit, I went with the zero to keep it more fitting. It was fun and low maintenance. I definitely recommend for a holiday party or winter wedding!

Great dress!
This is the second time that I am renting from RTR and I loved this dress! I ordered a size 2 and 4 for a 5:00 wedding...both fit, but I ended up wearing the 2. It was comfortable and my husband liked it! The only thing that I didn't like about it was that it was a little loose in the neck area. I wore a regular bra, which was great. I can't wait for my next event to rent again.

GORGEOUS in person! Pics don't do it justice.
I loved this dress so much. I rented it for a New York City wedding and it was perfection. I got compliments all night long. If I could buy it and wear it to every wedding, I would! So flattering.

Great dress! I got loads of compliments! It was a bit short and I had to pull it down all night. Also the lining was slightly visible at the hem. But other than that it was a great dress.

This was my first time renting, but it won't be my last. The process went as smooth as ever!
The fit was a bit on the smaller side. I ordered an 8 and a 10. I fit into the 8, but it was tough to sit down comfortably since there really is no stretch in this dress. The 10 gave me the little extra room that I needed. I received so many compliments! It was so amazing to wear such a beautiful dress. I felt fabulous all night long. Thank you!

Gorgeous Details on dress!
I ordered the 10 but it was just to snug on my hips. I wore the 12 because it fit me better in the hips but the top half was so bulky. There seemed to be to much fabric. I was happy with this dress overall. Although the black slip underneath was longer than the actual dress. (Almost like it had been washed and then thrown in the dryer). I wore black tights so it wasn't very noticeable, but had I not, it would have looked very bad.

Comfortable, classy, unique.
I'd buy this dress if I could afford it. Wore to a Sunday evening NYC wedding. My size 2 was a little loose, so I'd recommend getting the 0/2 instead of the 2/4. There is an unnoticeable belt loop string and I wouldnt have even known it was there except that it got caught on my husband's shirt button while we were dancing. Luckily, no dress or shirt was harmed in the incident. Warning: If you tend to do things like that (which I do), the crochet could be a little on the delicate side but I wouldnt let that deter you from renting this beautiful dress.

Compliments all night!
Fantastic dress- first time ever using this system. Wore this the President's Box at a sporting event and had nothing but compliments all evening. (Sorry I don't have a full length photo!) Ordered both a 0 & 2. Size 0 was perfect- I'm 5' 6" and the hem line was exactly where it needed to be. Not to short as to look questionable but just short enough to make my legs look amazing. Paired with black pumps and simple jewelry- a classic look with a hint of pizzazz. My only regret is that I can't wear it for the same function! Totally recommended.

very flattering, sparkly!
I rented this for a birthday outing in NYC - snug fit but very flattering - easy to move/dance in, lots of compliments - I didn't need to accessorize much, as the neckline is very sparkly (along with the rest of the dress). You can get away with wearing a regular bra in this, too. I accompanied with black/gold platform shoes. Very lightweight, I would highly recommend!

Gorgeous!
This dress is fantastic. I received so many compliments at my work Christmas Party. A fellow renter even commented that she wanted to rent this dress after seeing it in person. I am typically a size 10, to fit my upper body (large shoulders), this dress fit perfectly and the length was great. It has so much more pop in person that it does on the website or in pictures. Will definitely be renting again if I have another winter event to attend!

This was a beautiful and unique dress. I absolutely loved it. A little snug around the hips but it still fit. I'm usually between a 4 or a 6 and wore the 6. I got a lot of compliments on this dress.

Lots of compliments
I went up a size, because the hip area was a little small, but then the bust area was too big. It still looked good (and I am small chested) so I still wore it, but if I had bought the dress I'd probably tailor the bust area. Very beautiful, slightly metallic without being obvious, gorgeous dress!

Great print, perfect for a winter cocktail party...fit ideal for tall, slim shapes!
for a cocktail party, the fit was not meant for my 5'2'' frame - it ran very long (a few inches below my knee) and was a big snug around my hips. so cute, but in the end i couldn't make it work.

I'm 5'1" and a size 6, and this dress was perfect for a fall evening wedding. I agree that this dress was kind of short, even on me, so I had to be careful that it wasn't riding up when I sat down. I think this dress highlights curves and hides any bulges really well. Definitely suggest wearing this with sheer black tights and suede pumps or booties.

This is a lovely dress, but I was unable to wear at all. It is very short and probably better if you are 5'5'' or under. I found the top portion of the dress even in the smaller size was too large and I would have had to wear a different belt as it was swimming on my waist. Ultimately because there was a lot of sitting at my event, I choose not to wear it because I would have been uncomfortable with it hiking up all evening.

I loved this dress and got a ton of compliments at a fall wedding I wore it at. It fit true to size. I had to wear thick black tights because it's quite short (without tights it looked way too short on me). It looked cute though and I would recommend it. Sitting was slightly tricky!

A nice, flattering dress for a black tie event if you don't want to wear a full length dress. I got a lot of compliments and my boyfriend loved it! The only thing I would say was that the belt that came with it was too big. I ended up not wearing it, but the dress still looked great.

Perfect Holiday Party Sparkle
The dress was lovely. Definitely not too short unless you're concerned about it riding up while sitting down. This really wasn't much of a problem and I was sitting and standing throughout the time wearing it. I received a ton of complements and felt lovely in it! My only issue was that I only receive a belt with the size 6 which was too big and the belt was very loose with the size 4 that I ended up wearing. It was just fine without the belt luckily!

I am almost always a 2 in everything, but I have dresses from Milly that range from 0 - 4. I was a perfect 2 in this dress. With my height, I would not say that it was too short. While it was flirty and the perfect dress for a special event or wedding, the cut was too conservative for the cocktail-attire event I was attending and almost reminded me of a dress I would wear if I still lived in the South or even something my mom would wear if it were a few inches shorter (though, in all fairness, Mom does wear a lot of Milly). Still very cute, though. Also, the picture made me think that the dress was made of gold sequins, but in actually it's more of a tweed material.

Cute dress and would have been perfect for my event but it was too small and tight through the hips. I'm very short and I found the dress was too! Had I been 4-5 inches taller it would have been very attention-getting, but not in a good way.
