Never Arrived
I never actually received this dress but it's still asking for me to review it 4 years later. I rented this for my cousin's wedding vow renewal but it never came in the mail. I called RTR and they tracked it and said it would be arriving late. They asked me if I wanted to order another dress but I decided not to since it wouldn't arrive on time for the event either. I got my money back without any issues.

Gorgeous and classy
I purchased this sheath dress to wear to a gala fundraiser where I am on the check in table. Dress fit is true to size. Fabric is comfortable, and moves well walking and sitting. Love love love it. Dress will be perfect to wear as a guest to a wedding. Try it yourself and see.

I really loved this dress. I have no complaints.
The fit was on the small side. Normally I wear an 8, so I'm really glad I got the extra size because the 10 was much more comfortable. Other than that, it is such a great dress. Hides traditional bra straps and easy to accessorize. Kind of speaks for itself, so looks good with simple hair and accessories, I found. I toned down from what I had originally planned.

gorgeous dress; lots of compliments
I got a lot of compliments in this dress, and felt fantastic in it! It's a great cut and a great length. Felt sexy but appropriate. Good to know - The fabric is completely unforgiving. The tightest part was the black ribbon under the bust. I can see how the fabric could be itchy, especially around the armpits, as a few other people have said, but I didn't find it bothersome. I wore a strapless bra because of the cut of the top, but I think you could get away with regular straps.

Cute dress, but a little large
Very cute dress, the lace is prettier in person. the top is more gold and the bottom is more silver. Not a huge fan of the black bow in the center of the dress at the waist. hard to see in the pics. Didnt wear because the top was a little big.

Got a lot of compliments on the dress and people couldn't believe there was a website like this!
It runs true to size. If you are in between, definitely go for the next size up. If you have a high waist it will hit you in the right spot. I have an athletic build, so my shoulders were a bit cramped which rolled the armhole seam a bit and exposed the lining.

Perfect fit. Accentuates curves in an appropriate yet sexy way.
Beautiful details in lace. Gold shimmer on top section creates sophistication. No need for too many accessories a simple bracelet and clutch with studded earrings would do.

Pretty getup for a holiday party-- a solid, one-time wear
This was actually a little more on the fancy side for the evening's event that I went to. Expect that the sparkles certainly will help you stand out! Pros: while visually flashy, it is also conservative in cut and flattering for a slim form. Cons: the fabric is rough and can cause chaffing under your arms! Unless you've got sticks for upper arms, make sure you take that into consideration! The zipper was also a challenge to get closed, both because of the narrow fit and the fabric. You may need a second pair of hands, depending. My overall take is this dress did the job for the event, but it didn't define my night. I would not be looking to rent this again.

Beautiful dress, perfect for a Christmas party
I love Milly dresses, and this dress is just gorgeous. The detail on both the gold and black portions on the dress is beautifully done. The gold and black combination is very elegant and perfect for a winter party. It is comfortable and flattering - I received so many compliments! The 4 fit, but I have a broad back from years of swimming and the 6 was a little more comfortable around my back and shoulders. I loved the gold cuff and earrings I chose to go with it (also from RTR). I'm thinking I will rent this same ensemble this coming winter for a wedding!

Dealing w/ an injury & felt finally people were looking at what I had on not the big boot on my foot
Love this dress! In fact there have been several events I wanted to rent it for but it just wasn't right or my size wasn't available. I wore this dress to a cocktail dinner at a Convention. I usually wear a size 6 but based on reviews I got the 6 & the 8 and I'm glad I did! The 6 fit but there was no give for sitting! So I wore the 8 which fit more comfortably so that I could sit for dinner. The bust area was a little loose but it wasn't noticeable at all other than to me. The lace was a bit itchy not nothing too bad. I would def rent this dress again! In fact I didn't want to send it back so if it becomes one they sell I would probably but it!

Its Fabulous!
I am a size 0 but this dress seems to be tight so i am glad i have a back up size . Size 2 was perfect. But there was a problem , the zipper wont go up. It took me a while to figure out why the zipper wont go up. I got frustrated, asked hubby to help me with it. Found out , the zipper was stuck. I rented this dress for my 40th Birthday photoshoot , However , the zipper will go up if im not wearing it, there is a trick how to zip it up. But the dress is so beautiful and fabulous, i just have to take a pic of me sideways, so you CANT see the zipper LOL. Here it is! I told RTR about this problem, just to let them know to fix it. I didnt expect anything but i was surprised when she said, she will get me another free of charge. AWesome RTR! Good birthday present. Thank you. I would rate Customer service 5 Star!!

Wore this dress to a charity fundraiser. I received many compliments.
From reading other reviews I was prepared for it to run small. The lace was scratchy, but I only had to wear it a few hours, so it wasn't really a problem. Overall I thought it was a pretty dress.

Perfect fit, this dress was on point!
I wore this to my mother-in-law's wedding, and it was a hit! I could see how some people may have trouble with the size, because the rib-cage fit me perfectly and I have a slightly small ribs. I received many compliments. It was classy and sweet, and the little black bow in front adds an extra feminine touch.

Tight ribcage. Didn't wear.
I stupidly rented this after seeing someone I know who's built like a pencil wearing something similar. This is not for girls that have wide ribs or generally broad chests. It'll hold boobs, but not a muscular back. I don't even remember if I got this zipped up. I'm sure the description says it'll fit hourglass girls, but if you're an hourglass, order a size up for sure. I remember the back part mostly, but I feel certain my butt didn't fit in it well, either.

This dress is absolutely gorgeous. I received so many complements!! The lace is perfect!
I usually wear a 4 but decided to get the 6 as the back up instead of the 2. I am so glad I did. I ended up wearing the 6 and wished I had done the 8. The 8 would have fit perfectly but I made the 6 work. Loved this dress and I would absolutely rent it again.

Very fancy holiday dress!
Pros: Very beautiful, lots of details that make it stand out. Cons: Uncomfortable everytime I put my arms down, the fabric was beautiful but irritated my skin on my arms. The zipper is on the side and it was troublesome to get the zipper through the belt area on the dress because the fabric was different. At first I thought I was to fat for the dress but realized I had a lot of loose fabric in that section so I feel that this was just a flaw in design. Overall I felt this was a nice dress for a holiday occasion party or if you have a formal occasion.

A classic lace beauty
This dress was beautiful and very well made. It's form fitting but not tight, fully lined with a little bit of shimmer throughout the fabric. The contrast between the black and gold is stunning. I'm 5'3" and it fell just below my knee, for a very classy look. The bow is not quite empire but definitely sits higher than your natural waist. Best part, you can wear a regular bra with no problem! I wore it for a New Year's Eve wedding and received compliments all night.

Perfect for dressing up a holiday date night.
The dress fit great. I didn't find it itchy, as some previous posts mentioned. I would recommend getting one size larger for a back-up size because there isn't as much stretch in the dress. That said, it was very comfortable and fun to wear for the holidays!

The material was luxurious and the two lace colors with the bow made the dress elegant and fancy.
Go up a size or two. Its elegant and timely and classic at the same time. I received many compliments. If you have a smaller top with a small was it and big hips and thigh this dress is perfect for you. Great for a more conservative wedding ---I wore a shawl. COmfortable to dance in. The dress is nicely lined. I would rent this dress again---I never felt so pretty!

Didn't wear this dress
It was a nice dress. I probably wouldn't have picked it if I had it out in front of me to look at. Unfortunately, it runs pretty small. I had the size 8 and size 10. Could not fit in neither I think it just depends on the maker of the dress. Got a Badgeley Mischka dress for another event I have this wknd and I fit in the size 8 just fine. Also, kinda long if you are short like me at 5'1". I had rented it for New Years Eve event, but I guess I will be shopping for a dress tomorrow.

Christmas Party
Overall fit was good - modest but still has some classy sex appeal. Great for a work holiday party, which is what I wore it for. I personally had an issue with the zipper, it kept snagging. But once I got it to work, no other complaints. It isn't as much of a show stopper as some other dresses on RTR. I have received many compliments in the past on other dresses, not so much with this one. That is the only reason I gave it a 4, but still a very good dress overall.

I got so many compliments on my dress!
I ordered the 0 and the 2. Originally I had trouble zipping the 0 by myself so put the 2 on, which fit perfectly fine. My husband was able to get the 0 zipper and it fit a lot better for me. I am pretty small up top so I had no issues- however if you're bigger it might be snug. The part of the dress that has the band was fairly tight, but I was never uncomfortable. The dress is overall very comfortable and would buy it if I could. Loved my experience with RTR and will be renting again!!!

The dress was gorgeous, fit very well, all eyes were on me all night and I felt very beautiful!
This was my first experience with RTR. My order came in 1 day late and instead of getting size 10 and 8, both dresses were in size 10, which fit and looked great on me and that's all that mattered to me in the end. It was just very stressful since the dress arrived few hours before my event.

Beautiful dress, perfect for the occasion
Loved this dress! Very comfortable and I liked that I could wear a normal bra. The 0 fit, but was just a tad tight around the waist. I opted to wear the 2 because it was more comfortable. Both dresses were in great condition. Would totally rent again.

This was a Christmas party with my husband's associates. I received many compliments .
This was a great dress. The ribbon was a little tight so the bigger size made it more comfortable. I normally wear a 6 and the dress I wore was an 8. I am also a little shorter than the models so the dress was a little longer on me.That was perfectly fine. With the elegant lace, I wore simple diamond earrings and looked well put together. I would recommend this dress to anyone.

Dress damaged, couldn't wear it
This dress is absolutely stunning. I was really upset I couldn't wear it but the zipper was broken and it wouldn't zip up. The gold and black combo is really beautiful and the waist belt is very flattering. I hope to have occasion to rent it again and hopefully get one that isn't damaged. The rtr process is outstanding and I got another dress which turned out perfectly.

Super cute, great fit, perfect for cocktail attire parties
The bow is not stretchy and came a little wrinkled so I had to steam it. That is truly my only complaint about the dress. Fits very true to size (I wear a size 8 in Gap jeans and a size 8 in this dress). The material has a beautiful sheen and is soft against your skin.

Backup Size Up! Wears Really Well.
I usually wear either a 0 or a 2 and the 2 was tight on me. I definitely had to suck in to get it zipped and I should've gotten a backup size 4 instead of the 0. Thank goodness I don't have boobs, or I'm not sure I could've gotten this zipped! There is NO give at all in the fabric. That being said, the dress wears very cute. The black bottom makes you look SKINNY and the gold top is perfect for a Holiday Party. It was perfect for a work event and I had several people ask me where I got it so I told them all about RTR! I am very happy with the rental.

This dress fits true to size. The waistband has no give to it but it was still a wonderful and comfortable dress to wear for a work christmas party.
