Overall, a great, sophisticated find for an active wedding.
The bust of the dress runs large, I ended up wearing a VERY padded bra just to help fill it out. But even so, the fabric is very thick and stiff, and I felt a little thick in it. Loved the cut, and the skirt, would opt for a more form fitted top next time.

Hill Country Winter Wedding
This was the best dress ever. The top was very structured - almost corsetlike - so I didn't need to wear a bra. The dress was fairly short, but worn with tights it ended up being a great look that rode the line between formal/cocktail attire.

Fabulous LBD with a wonderful scoop neckline
I loved this Milly dress! I wore it to a Kansas wedding, the only problem was that it was in June and warmmmm... and at the time I kind of wished I wasn't in a black dress (that was a somewhat heavier material) under the sun. However, it was amazing and gorgeous and once I was in air conditioning, it was much more fitting for the event. I loved the scoop neckline in the front and it fit wonderfully. Shows off a small waistline wonderfully, and then flared out before being too tight on my larger pear hips. The only section that was a little weird fitting was the chest, but nothing that a little Hollywood Fashion tape couldn't solve (and it even held up to the sweaty Kansas weather).

night out in vegas to celebrate my baby bro turning 21!
I ordered the 6 with the 4 as the backup. The 6 was a little loose, so I ended up wearing the 4. It was a bit tighter in the bust, but it gave me some nice cleavage! It was perfect for our night out in Vegas.

It arrived with a broken zipper and I was unable to wear it. The customer service was excellent and I was able to get the issue resolved. Would definitely rent this dress again. It was beautiful!

Ehh...
Besides the fact that the zipper on this dress was broken, I wouldn't have worn it anyway. The fabric was worn out and pulling in places. I am normally a 2 or 4 and the dress made me look huge in all the wrong places, while simultaneously smushing my chest down so I looked flat as well. Didn't look a thing like it did on the model. Ended up having to get another dress sent for the next day, which RTR was very helpful with.

Unfortunately runs way too big
Cute dress, but way too big. I'm normally a 4 (though bigger on the bottom than the top, and this is only fitted on the top), and the smallest size was too big. Also, the fabric is quite heavy. Good for fall/winter, not for summer.

Great, comfortable dress for a night of dancing!
I was newly pregnant when I wore this dress, so it was perfect to hide my little "bump". I was comfortable in it all night. I'm not well endowed when it comes to my "girls" so the top was a little big around the bust area but nothing too bad!

I felt like a million bucks in this dress! I just felt like a rock star!
It is on the shorter side because it tends to poof out more than the model's picture. I would not recommend it if you are self conscience about cleavage! However it does make your bust look awesome. This dress accentuates your figure so rock it if you've got it!!

It was a nice little black dress for the wedding.
The only downside of this dress was that the straps were a little long on my frame. Other than that, I loved the construction and shape of this dress.

Mixes classy and flirty with little effort!
Loved this dress! I wore it with an updo for a dress rehearsal dinner for a friend and felt so very elegant. The cut around the bodice is beautiful and shows just enough skin. I would definitely go for an updo if you're wearing this in the evening. Loved the way the skirt flared out on the bottom. Great for adding a little more curve. Beautiful dress all around.

Modern, fun take on a classic sihouette
It's elegant without being stuffy, and looks great with a simple pair of black heels. Overall fits well but the straps are a bit large and slipped around and the bodice felt roomy.

Amazing, high quality dress!
This dress was a great choice that I wish I owned! It was high quality and perfect for an upscale wedding. It definitely accentuates the bust and if you are very busty, be aware of that. All in all I thought it was very flattering as well. Loved it!

Dress was adorable - but had to exchange it. Not good for busty gals.
Would be fun for a bachelorette type occasion, or for a more petite figure. I was busting out all over the place, top, bottom - it wasn't a good thing for a formal event.

Cute dress, a bit weird in length
I'm 5'3" so it was weird to find that the dress seemed a bit short. I also didn't like that the bow had fringed ends; it was also pretty "dead". However, the fit was great. I decided against rerenting this for a wedding but I could see how it could look great on another body shape.

It is the most adorable semi-formal Audrey Hepburn dress!
I think I was so crazy about this dress that I got it in a size 4 even though I normally wear a size 2 and the listing even said to go one size down which would mean a possible 0. Crazy right?! It was two inches too big in the waist for me, but I still was able to pull it off without anyone noticing. It was a wedding for someone at work and knew I wouldn't care as much about impressing the masses. I still got loads of compliments and people said they couldn't notice! I put my hands on my hip in most photos though! It was super fun to dance in!

So many compliments!
I loved this dress! I wore it to a late summer wedding. I usually wear a 2 or a 4, but went with the 4 because I was nervous about the length (I'm pretty tall) - it fit perfectly. This was my first RTR experience, and I would recommend it to anyone.

Loved the dress, it has a very flattering fit!
I ordered this dress to wear to a September wedding. After reading other reviews I ordered a 4 instead of a 6 (my usual size), and the 4 fit perfectly. It was a little lower cut than I expected but nothing a sweater couldn't cover up in the church! I paired it with a Lee Angel necklace as well! My only complaint is that the dress looked like it had been dry cleaned one too many times but overall I wouldn't definitely recommend it.

Perfect flirty dress for my bachelorette party!
I absolutely love everything about this dress. Although the dress has no stretch at all, I didn't find wearing this to be uncomfortable at all. The bow in the front was the perfect little touch that this dress needed. I was worried it would be too revealing in terms of cleavage, too short, or that I couldn't wear a regular bra. Luckily, I didn't have a problem with any of that. I wore black pumps, silver stacked bracelets, diamond stud earrings, and a simple silver necklace. I received compliments all night!

This dress looks great online and in other customers' pictures - the fit just wasn't for me.
This was perfect for a black tie-optional wedding I attended in April. I gathered from other reviews that the dress runs small, particularly in the bust, so I went with a 4 and a 6. The main problem was the fit of the bust and the size of the arm holes... very unflattering on me!

This is probably my favorite RTR dress to date. It is also one of my first! I wore this to a formal concert/dinner ball event for our alma mater. It fit perfectly and wasn't too short. The neckline is so flattering and the straps are very comfortable. I paired it with pearls to give a bit of a Breakfast at Tiffany's vibe. I received so many comments!

This dress was perfect and exactly what I expected! It is simple, classy and very flattering. It does run slightly big...I usually wear a 4 or a 6 but the 4 was more than perfect and very comfortable.

This dress fit so well and I got tons of compliments! I would rent this again in a heart beat. I got the 10 and the 8. I typically wear a 10 because of my backside but the 8 fit better.

No hassle, helpful staff made my rental experience amazing!
I ordered the 4 and the 2 as my backup. While the 2 fit like a glove, it was a little tough to take a deep breath, so I figured I would be more comfortable in the 4. Like others said, the dress doesn't have any stretch or give and I wanted to be able to dance and eat without feeling uncomfortable. The 4 was definitely a bit more roomy but it still looked great. The length was appropriate, a bit higher than knee length. I paired it with a chic white blazer but any color sweater or wrap would look great as well. There were snaps on the straps to keep my bra in place but I wish there had been two or three sets because my bra straps were sometimes a little visible. I can't stand strapless bras but if you can it would probably be better to wear one. With the way the size 2 fit, I wouldn't have had to wear a bra and still have nice cleavage but it was for a wedding and didn't want to be THAT girl. Great experience with RTR, it's just so convenient and I am so the type of girl that loves having a new dress for any event so this makes it easy to do so.
