Beautiful, classy dress, perfect for the occasion!
Everything about this dress was nearly perfect - the color, the fit, the details. My only small nitpick was that, being on the short side, it was a tad longer on me than it appears on the model. Other than that, I felt classy, elegant and received multiple compliments on the dress. Thanks for a great first rental experience, RTR!

Loved My Backup Dress!
This dress was actually my backup dress and I am so glad I ordered it! I needed a dress that would span the day for an afternoon wedding and evening black tie preferred reception - and this was perfect! The color is a beautiful teal. I normally wear a 4, but ordered the 2 based on others' reviews. The 2 fit perfectly! The dress is very comfortable and easy to wear. It was a good length for the conservative wedding/reception. Wore it with a strapless bra. I received many compliments from young and old. Thanks for another successful rental!

Never received more compliments in my life!
This dress fit beautifully. I normally wear a 6, but the 4 fit me much better--the lace laid nicer. The dress was so comfortable and I loved the pockets! It hit me right above the knee, so I could sit without worrying about it riding up. I wore this to a wedding and never received so many compliments. People I didn't even know stopped to tell me they loved the dress. The only con was that since it is covered in lace, I did get caught on my purse and other's jewelry about 4 times throughout the day--but I took care not to create a snag. Don't hesitate with this one--just be sure to order a size down for your back-up size.

Gorgeous dress!
I wore this dress to my step son's outdoor wedding, and it was perfect! Not too dressy, not too casual. The 3/4 length sleeves were perfect for a late spring evening, and the pockets made it fun and practical. I received tons of compliments all day and night. I would love to own this dress!

A friend said, "You look like British royalty!"
This was my first experience with RTR, and I was very pleased. I was going to a small, Sunday evening wedding, and my "look" I wanted was Kate Middleton, so I was excited by the compliment. The dress is very classy and stands alone well. I originally had a necklace on and felt it detracted from the beauty of the lace. Great dress!

Stunning dress, but leaves a little room to grow
Wore this for my brother's rehearsal dinner and loved it. Color was beautiful, fabric was soft. I lean on the large side of a 2, and am sometimes a 4, and I had a little wiggle room, so I feel like a small 2 would swim in this. I also wish the hem was shorter; it's so demure that an inch or two shorter could have given it less of a matronly feeling.

Stylish but elegant. Felt a little like Taylor Swift!
This dress is simply beautiful. It feels classy but also of the moment. Perfect for a cold, fall wedding. I loved the way the neckline laid on my skin, I had to wear my hair up to show it off. I was a little worried about the sleeves being too tight (sometimes that's a problem for me), but they fit great. There were a couple small holes, or worn spots in the lace, but I was still able to wear the dress. It is definitely more green than blue in real life. I was so sad to send it back. You won't regret renting this one!

I received so many compliments on this dress!!! It will definitely makes heads turn!
Pros: Very feminine yet edgy. Fits true to size and the color is rich and beautiful. Cons: The back is a deep V in lace and while beautiful, it was hard to keep the lace from flipping out.

LOVE this dress! Wish I owned it!
This dress is so beautiful! I was concerned with what the condition would be since so many people have rented it before, but I was pleasantly surprised when it arrived. I wore it with nude pumps and simple gold earrings. I got so many compliments all night. I would HIGHLY recommend this dress for any dressy occasion.

Dress is elegant, but still fun. Easy to wear. Forgiving for my tummy which is my problem area. I got compliments all night, even from my fashion conscious younger cousins. Dress came in great condition. Can't wait for my next rental.

Hi, I'm the same height and size as you and I was wondering if you found this dress to be long or did it come more mid-thigh than knee?

Beautiful dress, though I ended up not wearing it
This dress is really pretty in person. It ended up being too formal, though, for the party I was attending, so I went with my back up (Trina Turk's Candy Wrapper dress). The lace and strapless effect are gorgeous but very formal looking in person. This would be perfect for a wedding, but for just a holiday party it was too much. I usually wear an 8 in dresses, but the 6 fit pretty well. The skirt doesn't have quite as much give as it looks like it might, so I would suggest ordering your regular size or even sizing up if you have large hips/butt. If I had worn the 6 I would have needed to add spanx. The dress looked to be in really good shape, which is nice because lace can be easily damaged.

Great winter party dress
The dress was a great fit. I'm small chested, so I'm not sure it would have fit if I was bigger. I wore this to a December wedding and was comfortable the entire night. I also got many compliments. I feel like the dress looks greener in person. Giving it four stars because I could tell the dress was well loved. =) It had a slight stretch/tear in the armpit area and the sleeves were a bit wide on my arms. Overall though, I would definitely recommend this dress.

Awesome dress i general, the only thing that kindof bugged me was the sleeves felt a little stretched out cu they hit right at the elbow. Very flattering, very unique, great dress!

Classy but still fun!
Gorgeous dress, got it for a work event and it was perfect. Not too short (important with heels since that makes me about 6 foot!), and not too revealing while still being fun and pretty. The lace was really pretty, deep teal green-- got so many compliments! A few snags in the lace here and there, but nothing horrible. I took a bit of a risk getting a 2, but it was the only one they had available-- it was a little tight in the chest but other than that fit pretty well. Really great dress overall!

Beautiful detail in the lace! Very classy!
I rented another dress that once arrived I did not like. I spoke with a stylist, and she was able to overnight this dress to me in another city to the hotel! Was very pleased with RTR customer service! Will rent again! Felt very class in this dress. I wore with black tights and black shoes. Looked great with it. Hated to give this dress back! You can't go wrong with this dress!

Great dress for wedding guests!
I was drawn to this dress because of the teal color and the lace, but I was also a little worried it might be a little too matronly for someone my age. Not at all--it was very polished and classy, and I got several compliments. The lace pattern was lovely and symmetrical, and it wasn't itchy or stiff. I'm hourglass-shaped and tend to avoid dresses with a waistline that doesn't sit at the narrowest part of the waist, but although the waist on this was a little high, it's cut well so that it doesn't puff out over the stomach. I usually wear an 8 in most clothes (thanks, vanity sizing!), but that size was a little tight in the chest/shoulders, so I ended up wearing a size 10 in this dress. The only problem is that a previous client must have forced the zipper a little hard, so the top 2 inches wouldn't stay closed and I constantly had to keep pulling at it. Other than that, it was a great dress, and the rental process form RTR was a breeze! Jewelry tip: A necklace may look like a little too much because of the scalloped lace detail on the neckline, but you can enjoy wearing some stunning chandelier earrings with this!

Wonderful dress for a winter affair!
I wore this dress to a January wedding in Florida and I'm so happy with my choice! The sleeves are the perfect length and the trim on the lace is feminine without an "old lady" look. The length of the skirt just hit my knees (I am 5'6"). The pockets meant I didn't have to bring a purse with me! I had only two issues with this dress: First, the size 4, which fit me much better, had lots of issues with the lace - some curves would bend over itself, some of the lace had big holes in it, and the trim on the lace was uneven. I had to wear the size 6, which still fit fine but was loose around my waist and chest. The other downside of this dress is that it is slightly pleated off of the hip, making my hips look a bit wider than they already are. However, I still got plenty of compliments on the dress and had a great time wearing it!

Just Lovely
I wore this dress for my Valentines Day date and it couldn't have been lovelier. Not keeping up with the traditional V-Day colors- my photos don't do this dress justice! The shade of dark teal is absolutely stunning and when paired with the lace details- definitely romantic. Very Comfortable dress with 3/4 lace sleeves that aren't itchy and pockets- an added bonus! If you want to feel Beautiful and Lady-like with a touch of youthful romance- this is the dress for you! I highly recommend this dress and will be renting it again!

Pretty and classy!
This was a very pretty and high-quality dress--great detailing on the lace! My only complaint is that it was too long for me--you can see the dress came just above my knees, so it's not good for people who are a little shorter (I'm 5"2). But it still looked very good. I also wish the dress came in a smaller size than a 2.

Ladylike but sexy
This is a great dress! I wore it for our anniversary dinner and it was a big hit with the husband but I also received lots of compliments on the dress from others. The color is gorgeous and the lace is in very good condition. For girls with broad shoulders the 2 could be a bit of more of a squeeze but it is still very comfortable. I never felt like my shoulders/back were going to bust through the lace or anything. The back of the dress is perfect to show off a toned back. It's fitted through the waist but leaves room in the stomach (so you can enjoy a nice meal and not worry about your food baby showing!). It also has pockets, although I didn't realize it had them until the end of the day. They don't show at all. The length on me was the same as the model.

Stunning color and fit- LOVED it!
The details of this dress are just classic and pretty; I loved the lace neckline and color. It was the perfect party dress- fun but elegant and I got complements the whole night! I usually wear an 8, but the 8 wasn't available so I decided to give the 6 a try since people said it runs big- and it fit like a glove- however I will say if you have a larger bust- the extra room of the 8 would have been nice. Would rent this dress again!

LOVE this dress!
This dress was perfect for my family's holiday party but it would be great for dinner and drinks or for a wedding where you want to be a little more conservative but still look cute. In the picture it looks like a dark teal, it's actually a bit greener - still very a pretty color! You can absolutely dress it up or down depending on the accessories you pair it with. The fit is very forgiving so if you have a small waist I would recommend ordering a size down for your back-up. I had a some extra fabric under the bust and around my waist but a skinny belt fixed it right up. Overall I really loved this dress, received TONS of compliments, and am already considering renting it again for a friend's wedding in March!

Runs tts, if not large.
I ordered this as my first-choice for a New Year's wedding. I ended up wearing a backup dress however, as this one did not fit. I normally wear a 0, but I ordered a 2 and hope, hope, hoped that it would work. It was just too loose throughout the waist/bust/arms. I tried belting it, but I just didn't feel comfortable. Overall, a beautiful dress though. The color is pretty accurate as depicted on site, a teal. Condition was very good- some seams up near the shoulders were a little loose, but not noticably so. Pretty dress, I just needed a different size.

Classy and elegant, you can't go wrong.
This dress is very elegant and beautiful. It was my back up dress, but after seeing the dresses I would have chose it regardless. It was a bit long for my short stature, but fit nicely otherwise. The lace along the back opening was folded over while it was shipped so it didn't lay nicely. I would take the time to fix this next time as it would only add to the great detail of the dress.

I felt so beautiful and didn't want the night to be over!
I rented this dress for an anniversary date with my boyfriend and couldn't have been happier. The dress was so comfortable but made me feel so elegant and beautiful. I actually felt this dress fit pretty much true to size for me, but I only rented the one size (my other size choice was out) so I didn't have anything to compare it to. My only regret was that I couldn't wear it longer! I will definitely be renting next time I need a dress, and might even go for this dress again.

This dress is so flattering. It's a great color and has pockets! I got tons of compliments. The 6 and 8 both fit me, but I went with the 8 because the 6 was a little shorter than I wanted it to be.

Gorgeous Dress
I seriously cannot say enough good things about this dress. I wore it for my bridal shower and got tons of compliments. The color is beautiful and the dress is extremely comfortable. The fabric underneath the lace is stretchy so it's nice when you sit and it doesn't bunch up weird. Would highly recommend this!
