Compliments all night!
Lovely dress, material is heavy and dress gorgeously made. I am normally a 2R, the dress was a little too snug but I was able to breath and move around with no issues. My problem was with the chest area, twice I had to quickly adjust the v line because dancing would lead to exposure.The material was fitted around that area but it didn't protect me from an embarrassment while dancing, so I had to keep it to minimal movement. The dress also came with some loose strings, I am assuming it was caused by all the renting it has experienced. Overall, it was a lovely dress.

I got so many compliments on this dress!
I ordered the size 4 and size 6, and opted to wear the 6 so I could eat dinner and still breathe ;-) The dress was super comfortable, and very lightweight. I love how it flowed - someone said I looked like Belle at the ball when the wind caught my skirt and it billowed around me. I wore medium heels and the dress just touched the ground - I did carry it when I walked so no one stepped on it.

Felt like a princess!!
This dress is just puffy enough to feel like a ball gown, but not too much. I was on a dance floor most of the night and it really wasn't an issue. I wore this dress for about 10 hours for an all day event. The rib cage started to feel a little tight towards the end and made it a little difficult to breathe comfortably. Other than that it was an incredible dress and I would highly recommend it. I got a lot of compliments throughout the night.

So elegant! I felt gorgeous and comfortable all night.
This was a backup dress sent to me last minute, since (as usual) the dress I reserved was not available to ship. I was skeptical of the plunging neckline, and unsure I could pull it off. I don't normally show any cleavage and tend to dress more modestly. However, just a few strips of fashion tape and I felt confident and elegant. I am smaller chested, 34B/C, and the dress fit perfectly and held me in. The waist was pretty snug but in a good way and felt that it was holding me in more than the 8. I'm 5'6" and wore flats, and it was just long enough to be sweeping the floor as I walked. The only con? Despite the wedding invitation specifying a "formal" dress code, it was actually a very informal wedding and my dress was fancier than the bride!

Stunning dress, fit like a glove, luxurious material
This dress was absolutely perfect for my body type: 5'10", 150 lbs, small C cup, hourglass figure. The dress was low cut but had enough material so that it did not show off too much cleavage. I wore it to a black tie wedding and was complemented many times throughout the event. I felt like a princess walking around the wedding location. I wore the regular length although could have done with the long if I had wanted to wear anything taller than the kitten heels I had on. The dress was much lighter and easy to compact than I had expected. The tulle underneath adds the luxurious volume that made it a stunning ballgown. Because it is a simpler dress, I highly recommend pairing with a diamond or 10.

Gorgeous dress! Classy and daring at the same time!
I purchased this dress to wear to a summer, black tie wedding. I felt like a princess and got tons of compliments! The dress is lighter than it appears. I taped the girls down and then used double sided tape to keep the dress adhered to my skin. Typically, I wear a size 12 in dresses but in formal gowns, I tend to go for a 14 to accommodate my 36DDD bust. I'm 5'6 and was wearing flats in this picture but my 3" heels went perfect with the length.

Gorgeous gown
I loved this dress. The material was beautiful, lovely color, substantial with being heavy. It looked great. It was just too small for me - it wouldn't zip over my torso. Not the fault of the dress (just the way I'm shaped), although the fabric doesn't give at all, no stretch. Still, if I have another formal event where a ball gown is appropriate, I'll definitely rent this one again in a larger size.

Show stopper!
I loved everything about this dress. The poof to the skirt, the plummeting neckline, the fabric, the fit, the color. I wore it to a military ball and got nothing but complements on it. I wish I had this in my closet to keep forever. By far my favorite dress I have ever worn!

Wore this stunner to prom with my BFF. I felt like a princess and got compliments all night!!
Fit like a glove. I was worried it might be too low cut but I didn't feel like I was falling out at all! It was a tiny bit long on me (I'm 5'5" and wore 4" heels but it was still totally fine)!

Great dress!!
This dress was so fun to wear to a black tie event- had a big ball gown skirt, was low cut (beware if you don't like showing a lot of cleavage!), and pockets. I would definitely rent this dress again. The plum color made it great for a winter time event.

I was Cinderella for a night!
This dress was almost everything I wanted it to be! I needed a 14 but it was unavailable at the last minute and I was very upset by that but luckily was able to squeeze into the 12 with the help of pliers. It showed a lot of boob so I used double sided tape to add in some lace which was the perfect touch! I received so many compliments and felt amazing. The dress was just slightly long. I'm 5'4" and wore 2inch heals and there is a slight train so I had to make sure to pick it up when walking. The pockets were great as well! I only wish I had had the size I originally wanted. However, it was so hard to return this dress as I didn't want to take it off!

Daring and elegant
This was my original dress I rented but I ended up going with a replacement. The dress is gorgeous and certainly a statement piece. Unfortunately I was just not comfortable with the amount of cleavage for the event. I have a short torso, so perhaps if the straps were shorter I could have pulled it off!

Great color and comfortable dress for a formal event!
This dress fits true to size and was very comfortable. It is low cut so if you have cleavage be prepared to show it off. I preferred the long as I had 3 inch heels on, but could have gotten away with the regular if I'd had a lower heel. Would definitely rent this again.

Unique dress that garnered lots of complements
The bodice fit well although the plunge was deep. I used a brooch at the base of the "v" just to secure and prevent any malfunctions. The backup 14P probably would have been better if it had been available. The skirt was a good inch longer than I would have wanted it - forcing a higher heel then I like to wear. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the pockets!

Complete Standout
***Experience***I was afraid this dress might be too flowy for my black tie gala, and that I would awkwardly stand out from everyone else. I was so right and wrong at the same time. I stood out, but only because this dress looks like it belongs on the red carpet. It is the farthest thing from cheap, it is a total classy knockout. I felt like I was walking on water all night. It is so flattering especially in the waist, and photographs incredibly well. It is also very very light for a gown that looks like it should be 20 pounds. ***Fit*** I'm large chested and was worried i'd be too "out". But this dress was created understanding how women's sizes work (a rare thing) and fit like a glove. I used a little fashion tape for extra security but in the end I probably would have been fine without it. I wore a 10L and it swooped a bit on the ground behind me while I was wearing a 3 inch heel. If I were to wear it again I'd probably do a 10R or a higher heel, I just didn't have any high heels that were comfortable to wear for such a long event. The pockets are also A+

I loved this dress!! I wore it for my senior prom and it was beautiful and photographed well! Fits true to size but the straps were a little long so I had to pin them. I would recommend this dress to my friends that have the boobs to fill them out. Can't wait to rent again with RTR!!!!!!

Beautiful dress in a unique color
This is a very simple and elegant dress that stands out in the sea of black dresses given its unique color and textured fabric - a gorgeous eggplant-y purple and subtle black matelassé (it is definitely NOT burgundy). Random people came up all night to compliment me on the dress. The dress fits true to size, once I figured out the zipper. At first I thought the dress didn't fit bc it wouldn't go all the way up, but it turned out it was just the thick bodice seam (the fabric definitely has some weight to it) was making the zipper seem stuck. A little bit of fiddling with it did the trick - zipped up no problem. The a-line cut is very flattering (the dress has crinoline in it but isn't pouffy) - very slimming head to toe and my waist looked absolutely tiny. I did not have to wear a bra nor did I need any tape (I'm a 32D). I wore 4" heels with the dress and the length was perfect - it was as if the dress had been custom tailored to my height (I'm 5'5")!

I. Loved. This. Dress!!!! The fit was great, the color is great, and the fabric is great! It's not heavy and it's so comfortable. I was afraid it would be too busty, but it really wasn't. I felt so good in this dress and I got so many compliments wearing it. Also, it has pockets! What else could you want??

pockets & a lot of boob
the dress was beautiful, the full skirt & pockets really made the ensemble!! i rented this for my junior prom and people were constantly complimenting it. obviously the neckline was incredibly revealing, and i have a pretty full bust, so you will definitely feel exposed all night. the length could not be better, i had a 4" heel and the dress grazed the floor but i never tripped on my own skirt. since it was so full, i was stepped on a couple times, but that didn't bother me. also: this dress is a MONSTER to repackage, i ended up wrestling with the garment bag for a couple minutes, but worth it x 100 for such an incredible dress!

RtR's ability to fix their mistakes in less than 24hrs is by far the best.
This dress was what I expected. I had to use dress tape to tape down the bust line, but I think anyone renting this dress would have to. Anyone 5'4" and below will have to wear heels to keep from tripping on the length. The dress has pockets which is very convenient. The material is surprisingly light weight. I dance in this all night long and was very comfortable.

Stunning in person... Nonstop compliments all night!
Pictures do not do this dress/fabric justice! It's beautiful, very comfortable, and I felt amazing! The 2L fit me perfectly and I could still wear 3" heels... The 0L was way too tight in the bust and a little short. I've never worn a fuller skirt, and it was so much fun! The event was very crowded, so people stepped on the back pretty often.

Total wow moment!
I wore this dress to my sisters wedding and could not have felt more amazing. You can't wear a bra, but a little fashion tape does the trick. It's definitely exposed in the front so if you are shy in that area, perhaps this isn't the dress for you. Otherwise it's amazingly comfortable and flowy and the material is so lavish. I received compliments long after her wedding!

Wore this to a Black Tie Gala & it was perfect! I felt like a princess & received many compliments!
I got a size 2R and 4R. Thankfully I could fit into the 2, because the 4 would have been even longer on me. I'm quite short at 5'2" and the Regular fit with 3" heels was still too long. I was able to take some fashion tape and bring up a front a little bit so that I wouldn't step on it so much. Either way, I had to hold the dress up every time I walked, but that wasn't a big deal because the dress is just gorgeous... so totally worth it! Also, I am relatively small in the chest area, so I didn't fill out the top enough. I had to buy inserts to fill it out, and once I did... it fit nicely. For extra security in the front (especially since I had the inserts to hide) I used fashion tape to hold the top perfectly in place. The dress is so incredibly stunning... I would recommend it for anyone! It's flattering and I honestly think it looks great with a smaller chest size, even though I needed the inserts. While it's very low cut, it's so darn elegant and tasteful that I didn't feel like it was too revealing. The pockets are an extra plus... and allowed me to carry more than I usually can at such an event. The cut of the back was also a bonus because I was able to make a back necklace to wear, for something a little more unique! If I ever have another Black Tie event to attend, I will totally rent this dress again!

I was getting compliments all night long!
The shoulders were a little bit loose so I felt like I was struggling a little bit all night to keep the straps tight. The pockets in the skirt were so fun and easy to keep a phone or lipstick instead of worrying about a purse all night. The 12L was just the right length with flats (I'm 5'11").

Ball gown that got compliments all night
Light and comfortable, very flattering! I wouldn't suggest it if you aren't comfortable with a very low cut in the front, but I loved this dress!!! I still get compliments on it. I ordered the long version, and it was the perfect length (I'm 5'10")
