Gorgeous Dress
Rented for a black tie wedding. Loved this dress and would rent again. It was flattering and gorgeous. It does run very small and does not stretch. Only downside was that the bottom was a bit wrinkled due to shipping / travel, but still loved it overall.

Beautiful dress
High quality all around but it does run small. I should have gotten a 6 but it still looked fantastic. Flattering to curves and showstopper!

I felt beautiful in this dress, but it definitely runs small! Gorgeous sparkle!
This dress had the wow factor I was looking for. Pictures don't do it justice, the sparkle is so pretty. It is very form fitting and hugs every curve. It does run small, especially in the hips, I had to go a size up. It is not very long. I'm just under 5'4" and it was just long enough. I would definitely rent it again!

Gorgeous but definitely runs small
I received several compliments on my dress at the event but was not at all comfortable. This dress runs small so if you have any semblance of hips or thighs, you'll want to size up one to two sizes. I ordered this dress in 10 & 12 normally wearing one of the two sizes in dresses, ended up wearing the 12 but wished it came in a 14 with how tight the hips are. I had to hike it up in order to sit down and the boning in the top dug in. The lining seemed brittle due to several uses and probably added to the boning sticking out. The color is actually black with bright silver weaving unlike the picture looking like pewter fabric. But if you can fit the dress or don't mind being a bit uncomfortable, the dress looks stunning and is a classy choice.

Stunning gown! Compliments all night!
Rented for a gala and felt so glamorous. My only complaint is the length. I'm 5"10 and had to wear flats, even though I rented the "long" size.

Beautiful lines and form fitting-amazing dress!
This dress was a back up to my original dress and I'm so glad it was! This dress is stunning a true show-stopper! It fits very tight and the material is very thick, NOT stretchy at all. There is boning in the dress which makes it very tight, although it's what adds to the beauty. The back is gorgeous, very low, you can't wear a bra. I wore a nubra and it worked great for some extra lift. Felt like a million bucks!

Comfortable and elegant
Dress fit like a glove ! Wore it from 6pm to 2am with no issue. Color was great . Cut was great. The dress although very classic, wasn't very unique. The material is thick and a little hot. Also because the material is so thick the dress was very wrinkled when I took it from the bag. I had to steam it multiple times over the course of two days before I wore it .

Perfect Black Tie Gown
I felt like a princess in this dress! The 0 was a little snug for me but the 2 was too big. I was worried about eatting and dancing with the snug fit, but it really wasn't bad. The dress has a corset bodice, so it just took a little getting used to. The fit looks perfect in photos. Got tons and tons of compliments! Really a fun dress to wear!

Beautiful dress
The dress is beautiful. I got so many compliments. The bust area is a little tight so I had to wear the size 4 when normally I am a size 2. The size 4 however was big on my waist so I had to temporarily pin the sides in so the dress would be form fitting. I would highly recommend this dress for a formal event.

This dress was amazing! A show stopper!
This dress does run about a size small and does fit tight in the hip area. It is stunning on though and the pictures on this website do not do it justice! I normally wear a size 2 and ordered up a size and it fit me perfect. It did come wrinkled and since it is polyester I had to take it to a dry cleaner to have them steam the wrinkles out. It was perfect for my husbands military ball. I got tons of compliments in it. Highly recommend.

Va-va-voom
This dress gave me the most amazing shape! It was incredibly comfortable, did not have to worry about it falling down, stayed in place all night (a must when chasing around a 1 year old lol). And yet it gave me such a wonderful silhouette! I was so thrilled with the overall look and I had people stopping me everywhere to compliment me on the dress. Loved, loved, loved this dress. Not to mention the RTR customer service is the best I've ever encountered. I received a size 4 which was too big and called in to try to find a 2. They found it for me at the NYC store and had it Saturday delivered to me in time for the wedding! Nerve-racking but totally worth it in the end. Will never buy a dress again, RTR is the way to go.

Perfect dress for a gala event!
This dress fit like a glove and I got so many compliments on it! I wish the dress came in a 0L, because it could have been just a tad longer, but not really a noticeable issue. Also, happy that I rented the recommended jewelry to go with it, it was a stunning combo.

.
i'm 5'4", 115 lbs, 32b, and i'm usually a 00P in dresses. this dress was definitely too big, especially in the bust. i had to do some quickie stitching and bring it in a bit to fit me, that along with a really padded push up sticky bra and some fashion tape i was able to get it to look flawless.

Stunning dress!!
This dress is tight in the hips so curvy girls beware. I had to wear the 8r because the 6r was too tight around my hips and I wouldn't have been able to sit. It was difficult to get into an suv. Unfortunately the top was loose but I chose not to wear a bra and there were no wardrobe malfunctions. The material is thick and you may get a little sweaty because of the amount of material around your legs on the bottom but all I did was raise the dress a little while I was at the table to give my legs some air. I am 5'1" and wore 5" platform heels which made the dress just touch the floor in front. No one stepped on it as I walked and if I was dancing around other people I picked up the bottom and danced with it in my hands. The color is beautiful and photographs well. The bodice has light boning but the belly area is not tight so you may need spanx. Everyone complimented the dress and loved the mermaid style. This dress was on my radar for a long time and I am so happy it was available for me to rent!! If you are thinking about renting it, do it! You'll be really happy you did!

Very flattering!
I rented this dress for a black tie fundraiser. I was really concerned about the fit of the dress. The reviews that I read differed in opinions of size and fit. I'm 5'2" on a big hair day :) . With 4 inch platform heals, the dress was the perfect length. I usually wear a size 2, but the 4 was a much better fit. I would definitely say that it runs one size small. The chest area was a little snug, but the interior strap helped it to zip up easily. I did have a small issue with the dress arriving with some wrinkles. I contacted RTR, and they were prompt and efficient in handling the issue. This dress made me feel glamorous...absolutely loved it!

I had so many people stopping me to tell me how stunning I looked in this dress!
I spent a lot of time reading reviews to make sure I ordered the right size. I typically wear a size 4 but everyone said the dress ran small and I'm glad I listened! I wore the 8L with 3.5 inch heels. The heels made the dress the perfect length with the front just barely skidding the ground. It fits snug and has no give, because I went with the larger size it was loose around my busy area. I wore this to a military graduation. When my husband and I walked into our hotel lobby we actually received an applause from hotel guests and staff because of our attire. The dress was a hit!

This dress was stunning and looked amazing. I definitely got more compliments on it than I thought.
It is very tight on your Rump. But it is flattering and very comfortable. It stays up well and I was able to move very comfortable in the dress all evening.

Truly a stunning princess dress!
The overall dress does fit small like everyone says, so size up 1 to 2 sizes. I normally wear a size 10 and I couldn't get that size over my hips but the size 12 fit... just snug. Because I had to size up however, the top was way too big (I'm a 36B-C) and I was swimming in it. I had to wear a strapless/backless bra and buy some VS fake breast inserts as well to help fill out the large gap. With that said, I absolutely loved this dress and felt amazing in it. So many people stopped me to ask me where I got the dress and gushed over the dress. The dress photographs great, is made of a very thick (and heavy) material, and is a great gun metal color. I felt truly stunning!

Love it
This dress is amazing, it fits small so make sure you get one size up. I almost didn't fit the back up but I held my breath and got the zipper pulled up and it worked. If you are curvy this dress is for you. I wear a size I but it wouldn't go pack my hips do the 10 fit perfectly. I was the MOH at a wedding and I got so many compliments.

Beautiful dress
I recommend talking to a consultant about the size you should get. I thought my size was a 6 but she told me I should get a 10 and it fit perfect! Made my curves look so good! The sweetheart neckline did not look food on my body and poked out on either side digging into my armpits. Don't plan on driving with this dress on. The front is shorter than the back and allows your shoes to be shown. This was a negative for me. Beautiful fabric and craftsmanship was amazing

The best dress I have ever worn!!
This dress was spectacular!! From the moment I put it on I didn't want to take it off. And in fact wouldn't. My husband had to make me change into my pjs :) Highly recommend renting this dress! And thanks to RTR staff for sending me this replacement overnight as the other dress I rented was delayed in shipping.

Stunning!
This dress was absolutely gorgeous. I wore it for my senior prom. It fit like a glove and sparkled in the light beautifully! I received many compliments throughout the night. It is very snug in the waist area compared to the bust area, I ended up slipping a strapless bra in. One thing I did not realize until after the night was over is that there is a separate bra-like back other than the zipper. Overall, highly recommend and would definitely rent again!

Loved this dress. The length was perfect. The size fit slightly awkwardly on me, but only because I have an extreme pear shape, and it wasn't noticeable. The gown was beautifully made. 10/10 would recommend.

Waaaaaay too short
This dress was about 5" too short for me, so I didn't wear it. The busy was also very very small- probably would have needed to size up if I wanted to be comfortable. Beautiful dress tho.

Only for very thin
The size 2 was too small and the 4 too big so neither worked. I am 5'5" 115lbs so I can only guess this is for very thin type. I have a little bit of a pear shape but not exaggerated at all.

Everything went absolutely amazing!
The dress fit absolutely true to size! I'm very small everywhere so I was so pleased that everything fit perfectly. Nobody at my prom had a dress similar to it and I felt great in it. I didn't even have to wear heels which made it even better! I absolutely loved loved loved this dress!

I wore this for my sorority formal and everyone was complimenting my dress all night!
The dress ran true to size for me. I am rather large chested and have a smaller butt. If my butt was any bigger I would have to have sized up. My only con is that my boobs were almost popping out the whole night. I feel like the top wasn't sturdy enough to hold them in place but I couldn't wear a strapless bra because the back of the dress is just a little bit too low. I am also 5'3" and the dress hit the ground without heels. Overall I love this dress and highly recommend this dress to anyone looking at it. It will make you look and feel beautiful and everyone will ask you where you got it!

Super cute and very elegant. A little hard to put on but fit very well.
There's structure in the dress, so you don't have to worry about whether your having a fat day or a skinny day because it's like a mini corset in there. I thought it was beautiful. Super classy and very stylish. Definitely would recommend.
