Gorgeous gown

I rented this dress for a wedding and it was absolutely stunning. I felt great wearing it and received so many compliments. I rented the 10L and 12L, but ended up wearing the 12 due to the length. The 10 was a bit of an awkward length even while wearing flats, so even though the 12 was a bit looser the overall look was better. I would definitely rent this dress again for another occasion.

Classic style, bought it

This fit perfectly--it was snug through the hips as it's supposed to be, but I️ could still easily sit and walk around. Just be careful with the lace if you are wearing pointy heels! I️ don't think this will ever go out of style so I️ decided to keep for a future event!

LOVE

Back is amazing! Very comfortable. I'm 5"3 and the length was perfect which is amazing, I wore 3 inch heels and no dragging probably could have even gone with shorter heels. Highly recommended!

Gorgeous, easy and comfortable.

Beautiful dress, endless compliments. I found that it fit very true to size and regular length was fine- im 5'6" and wore 3 inch heels. No extra undergarments (spanx) required. Was able to go braless with no show-through. Wore with a conservative crowd and felt well covered yet sleek and stylish.

This dress is a show stopper. Recieved complements all night.

I'cehaedly ever felt more confident, stykish and beautiful than in this dress. If I could wear it every day I would! It's very comfortable and fits like a dream. I'm on the petite side and wore my standart 4R bit it was slightly big in the hip area on me and still a bit long woth 3 inch heels on. Just be careful when walking. My heel caught in it a few times. I dont think I have ever recieved so many complements in one night.. ranging from beautiful to chic to elegant. I don't normally wear my hair up but had it done in a knot ro the side because the back makes this dress and you can't hide it. I would absolutely rent this again. Highly recommend.

I haven't felt this pretty in a dress since my wedding dress

This dress is amazing! Very flattering. I did have to wear a size up because it was tight in the hips and butt. Would love to purchase this dress

Show stopper

This dress is everything I needed for my event. It for perfect. I rented a size 12 and 14 because I knew it would be fitted on my hips. This dress was comfortable and showed off my curves perfectly. I usually wear at 12, but I decided to wear the 14 because it fit a little bit loose. I was attending a Gala and knew it was a sit down dinner. People gave me so many compliments. I highly suggest renting this dress. It's perfect for any event.

Beautiful dress!

I loved this dress. Very well made and so beautiful. Unfortunately I was able to wear it due to sizing of the dress. I ordered a 16 and a 18W. I normally wear a 16 but I couldn't get the 16 to zip. I was hopeful for the 18 but it was inches too big. I was so disappointed because the dress is gorgeous.

Stunning lace <3

I wore this dress for a charity gala. It was the perfect mix of conservative and sophisticated with an artistic/edgy feel. I felt so elegant in it! The show-stopper feature is the back (wish I would've snapped a pic) because the lace is transparent and highlights your back. I didn't wear a bra, but used tape that lifts as there is no built in bra. Dress is form fitting but naturally a bit tight on the thighs..I could've went with a 6, but glad I didn't because it would've been too tight on my legs/athletic build. Overall, I got several compliments throughout the night and would highly recommend renting this beaut!

Soft and beautiful material. Comfortable. I just was not a fan of the fit for my body. I have wide shoulders so it was just a bit much.

Gorgeous lace; flattering & fun

Very well constructed; thick fabric & flattering. Modern lace detail, especially on back is gorgeous. Neck and shoulder lace detail pretty too. Thick enough I didn't wear Spanx. No bra (fine for my small chest). Many compliments

Gorgeous and sexy but still appropriate

I wore this to my friend's black tie wedding. I don't think a single person I talked to the whole night didn't comment on how amazing it was... I didn't want to send it back! I'm 5'7" and wore the L... it was a tad long, however because the wedding was in a greenhouse I wore a 2 inch gold metallic brocade Michael Kors block heel. I think had I worn my usual 4 inch heels, it would have been the perfect length. I was also concerned about not wearing a bra, however didn't have trouble.

Comfy and sexy

This dress was perfect. It was so comfortable and I loved that the back was open lace. It provided a sexy flair since the front was covered up. I am busty, and this dress fit nicely around my chest and I didn't even wear a bra (open back). I danced all night no issue. I also loved the length. The dress with heels didn't hit the floor so you could see my heels and when I took them off I didn't have to hike it up or anything. It hit right at floor length. I am 5'7" I'd rent this again and again. Even though of purchasing.

Amazingly beautiful dress!!

This dress was absolutely beautiful. I wore it to a charity auction/gala. It fit perfectly! I'm only 5'3" and the 6R was perfect with 3 inch heels. If you're tall and thin definitely go with the long. I got so many compliments all night, people stopped me everywhere I went. I felt like a celebrity! The fabric is thick so no spanks needed, just a sticky bra (or none at all) and you're good to go. The sheer back was a show stopper. You will not be disappointed with this one.

Bringing the drama

I rented this for a masquerade fundraiser around Halloween- I got a TON of compliments on it and felt amazing. Dramatic but still black tie, all sorts of grown up goth queen feels. Things to note- I ended up wearing the 20 instead of the 18 which fit, but was a little more form fitting and most of my shapewear sits too high up to not be visible in the open lace back- the 20 glided, the 18 hugged. All depends on your bodycon comfort level. You will get things caught in the lace. It's a GORGEOUS brocade style lace, but chain type things, heels, etc all tend to get caught. If you are busty you will need to either use breast lift tape (it does exist and it does work) or feel comfortable going braless- the back is sheer and there is no built in shelf bra. I'm an H cup and found lift tape on amazon that worked really well. It has a heavy liner so you're not poking out everywhere. I ordered the long and had a kitten heel on- I'm 5'8 and the heels maybe made me 5'9-5'10 and the dress was grazing the ground. Consider your lengths depending on your look. Consider a little bit of starch to get the neck to stand up... I was a little bummed that I had run out and couldn't get it to really pop!

Beautiful dress worn in my best friend's wedding.

Well this wasn't meant to be my dress. I was supposed to be in my friend's wedding, I had ordered the other dress from RTR beforehand and tried it on for her and then promptly reordered for a week long rental in Oct and it never showed up. So I panicked and went to RTR here in NY and they came through for me and provided this beautiful alternate, which in my opinion was better! Lovely fit and style!

Best Dressed! Felt glamorous.

Loved this dress. Got tons and tons of compliments. Was very comfortable. I'm busty but was able to wear a sticky bra and all held in place as the top was tight fitting. The long is not that long. The regular would have been too short. I wore a pretty standard heal height and it was on the verge of being too short.

Perfect for the event !

It was my first experience renting a dress and it was perfect ! The dress I thought fit great. I ordered 4R and 6R ended up going with 6R - not too short or long. I wore about 3 inch heels. I got compliments all night ! It arrived all together in a nice garment bag. RTR makes it very easy to ship right back!

Compliments all night long!

I ordered later than I would have liked, so I got 10 and 10L. I may have wanted to size up to 12L, but it wasn't available. I didn't end up needing to wear a bra with it! I can't even tell you how many compliments I received on this dress. Would definitely recommend. If you are 5'7" or taller DEFINITELY get the long. I'm only 5'7" and didn't even wear heels.

Elegant

Wore the dress to a 1920’s theme party. Had to go up a size the bust area was a little too tight. Other than that dress is comfortable. I didn't have to wear high heels the length was just right. I will rent again.
