Incredible detail

This dress was gorgeous. I used it for a wedding and it was perfect. I'm on the shorter side but with heels the length was spot on. Considering the open back I wore a stick on bra and had no problems with it. The only minor issue I had was that the pelvic area had more fabric that seemed to bulge a bit, but not a huge issue. Overall a gorgeous elegant dress.

Wound up sending it back due to fit

Fits weird, tried 0R on and was loose in the waist and bust area was also a little on the short side for length, i just dont think this dress is made for short curvy girls

Surprise engagement party with an amazing dress!

Dress fits true to size, except for the sleeves -- they were slightly large. Otherwise the dress is more of a tan color, lace throughout, great fit, and gorgeous. I'm very happy this was my engagement dress :)

Perfect for my second wedding

I would highly recommend this dress although the one I was sent appeared to have a lot of miles on it. It was true to size and I'm a curvy pear so the 12 was pretty roomy at the top and snug on the bottom. The 14 completely swallowed my upper half although the bottom fit wasn't quite as tight but almost just as. The sleeves were very roomy and I loved the back cutout too. I got lots of compliments and felt beautiful. The slip had no stretch so if you're very curvy beware.

Love that I can rent a new gorgeous dress for every event!

Felt beautiful in this gorgeous dress outfitted by the perfectly selected surprise earrings! Size runs small by 1 size; and pretty snug in the rub area. Overall, I love the convenience of renting 2 sizes and selecting one new dress for every special occasion. Customer service is top notch! Can't wait to rent my next dress. Thank you RTR!

Loved the dress

Loved the dress and got a lot of compliments on it. Wore the 8R instead of the 6R because of it being too tight around my waist. However, the 8R was a little large around the bust. But it worked out (with a few safety pins) and looked beautiful.

Over 50 bride

The dress was comfortable and romantic. I wore this for my informal October evening wedding. The dress is two layers with a medium weight lace on top. The open back was very pretty but you will need a backless bra for support if you are a larger cup. It was perfect for an over 50 bride - not too young - and not too matronly.

Fit like a glove- so many compliments

Had a RTR emergency when my original dresses didn't fit. The stylist sent me this style in long and I wasn't too excited about it. It was stunning! Received so many compliments on how gorgeous it was. Definitely wore 6 inch heels with it which isn't a problem for me but be cautious that the regular is too short to wear heels and the long is definitely long! Would rent again for sure!

Made me feel glamorous!

The original dress I rented didn't have the backup size available, so they sent me this one. Which was actually better! I loved the fabric the moment I saw it and the design of the dress was awesome especially the back. The fit from midsection down was great. The length was fine, although my heel got stuck in the lace a few times, but overall great even though my heels were just 3.5 inches. My issue is the top (shoulder area). It was kinda big, that I had to straighten it out all night even though I already pinned it in the back. It was great to have worn a Monique Lhuillier without actually having to buy it. This is my 2nd time to rent...and will be coming back for sure.

Great dress for my anniversary photoshoot

The dress fits great for my curves! It fit a bit lose in the top as i am a 36B which I could have complemented with cups. Overall the dress is very comfortable and made me feel very glamorous.. I chose the long one since I was not wearing heels but did not want to show my shoes..

Used this as a bridesmaid dress. Everyone said I was the prettiest bridesmaid :)

I am pretty curvy so the area around my thighs and butt were a perfect fit but the chest and arm were a bit loose. I would order a size up if you are curvy!! I loved this dress so much I really hated that I had to return it...I wanted to keep it!! I felt so beautiful in it!!

Short, odd lines

Dress was unfortunately damaged-looking, as you can see in the picture. Awkward bunching and lines on the dress-- not like I saw in anyone else's pictures. I didn't end up wearing it but was overnighted another. I'm 6'1" and the dress was way too short in 6L. I'd say anyone 5'9" and shorter would look great in it! Also try to up your tan before the event.

Dress was great for engagement photoshoot!

Rented for my engagement photos and the dress worked perfectly. I ordered the 4L and 6L, I'm 5'10" and there's no way I would be able to wear heels with this dress, so I ended up wearing sandals and just made sure you couldn't see them in the pictures

I loved this dress! I wore it as a bridesmaid in my friends wedding. The lace is everything!

The dress was gorgeous! The fit is a bit iffy. It was tight in the midsection area and a little extra room in the top area. Overall, the dress was beautiful & I received many compliments. I would definitely order from RTR again! Thanks for aiding in my look for such a special occasion!

Two teachers told me I was the best dressed!

I wore this to my school's prom and I've never gotten so many compliments! I ordered the 2R and 4R. the 2R fit very oddly. it was perfect in my torso but way to big around my boobs and shoulders. so I went with the 4R which was perfect in the boob/shoulder area and just a little loose in the torso. but it gave me the perfect amount of dancing room. I never had to try to pull up or fix the dress. I did have to wear an adhesive bra because I was a little saggy without one. I am 5'5 and wore about 3" heels. the dress was the PERFECT length. when I took off my heels to dance I stepped on it a couple times. but overall, I am absolutely in love with this dress and I wanted to cry when I had to return it.

Heard from several wedding guests that my dress was their favorite!

I've heard so many compliments about this dress - from wedding guests to friends seeing it in social media posts. (Wore this as a bridesmaid where we got to pick our own nude or champagne colored dress). A couple cons: there are two layers of fabric under the lace which can tend to "ride up" or cause a wrinkled look. I spent a lot of time "smoothing" it all out. I also felt like I needed to "suck" it in a bit more than I like and would have probably preferred the next size up. The compliments I received however is that it fit like a glove. :) Back is pretty open - I did not wear a bra and felt sufficiently covered. Overall, a great dress but s bit more high maintenance than I like.

no one will ever guess how frustrated you feel with this stunning gown.....

this was an emergency backup for a gorgeous outdoor fall wedding, and i was mostly pleased with it. it definitely doesn't run "true to size" but I also didn't know how to accurately answer that. some parts were too big, others too small. TL; DR >> no one would ever guess how frustrated you are with this stunning gown! PROS: the lace is comfortable & forgiving -- I didn't feel the need to wear Spanx. it was warm and moved easily on the dance floor. loved the way it fit my butt, which is big but not particularly round. double lined, which smoothed everything out quite nicely :) length was decent (I'm 6'1" and wore flats: it showed more of my boots than I prefer but it worked with the rustic down-home feel the bridal party had). CONS: the back was SUPER awkward and inconvenient. the top section wouldn't stay fastened for more than 15 minutes and was very loose -- and it's not like it was loose to accommodate big boobs. BUT at the same time, the zippered section around the middle back fit like a size 8 and almost made the dress impossible to get on. this dress felt fantastic on 90% of my body, but somehow not the 6" between vertebrae T5 & T8. none of us could figure out the discrepancy. i had to be very very creative & very very patient to just get it on, and it was actually super stressful. once it was on, it was on & looked nice, though I was quite insecure about a slight back-fat situation that I've never had to deal with before.. bust had no give was not roomy enough for DD+ and I had some near nip-slips. also had issues with side-boob & that damn open back & the too-big shoulder fabric issue. anything & everything will catch on the lace, so be gentle, move slowly, and beware of dangly jewellery & rogue fasteners..... double lining = constant readjustment. lots of twisting and bunching :\ CONCLUSION: I guess the ideal body for this gown would have broad shoulders & B or C cup boobs & a narrow waist. everything else was fine? idk. this dressed looked fabulous 95% of the time. the wedding was the most joyful weekend of my life so it's hard to complain, and I *did* get a lot of very genuine compliments from friends and strangers alike. I looked and felt beautiful, despite how frustrated and not-carefree the dress made me. oh well!

Pretty Dress

Fit well overall and looked nice in photos. I felt that it was a little short though. It also seemed to be well worn, so the color was a bit dull and there were several pulled threads.

Slinky, Lacey, and Elegant

I wore this dress as a bridesmaid in a Chicago wedding. It was beautiful! The comfortable lace hugs your curves and has a nice weight to it at the bottom. My only minor complaint is the length of the bodice - the open lace part is fairly long between the neck and the bust. It was a bit difficult to place my adhesive bra low enough so it wouldn't be seen. Despite this, I would absolutely recommend!

Nice dress, but not for me.

I rented this as one of my 3 unlimited options for a formal work event coming up, but will not be wearing. I usually wear 6 and the 6L was good, but the dress itself was odd and the color didn't work well with my skin tone. The nude is blurry flat and boring in person. I'm a 34b and while the dress fit perfect in the waist and hips it was baggy at the top. So perhaps with a larger bust it would work better. Also, the Long barely brushed the floor, which could be the fabric tightening after several cleanings, not sure. Overall, this one just wasn't for me!

Gorgeous dress! But a little stretched out.

I rented this dress for my boyfriend's private school prom. It's so classy and comfortable. The color definitely seemed darker to me than it did in the picture on RTR when I first opened it, but in daylight it looks more gold. I am typically a size 4 in strapless dresses but in this and another Monique Lhuillier dress I've worn, the 2 fit perfectly. I loved the dress and I would rent it again but the clasps in the upper back part of the dress were loose and kept coming undone throughout the night.

It was awesome when everyone would tell me "I love your dress, I've been looking at it all night!"

The 4L was perfect length with 3 inch heels (being 5'8") and the 4 was even a little big but that's because I didn't realize I was a 2 to start with. I got a lot of compliments on it all night and it was very different than anything anyone else had which I like a lot! Everything was smooth with shipping. Some reviews said they had pulls in the lace but both of my sizes were in pretty good condition, I didn't notice anything wrong with them. I was a little afraid of sweating in the short sleeves being summer but the part of the dress under the arm comes down far enough that I didn't have any issues. I would rent this dress again!

Lovely

This is a truly beautiful and classy dress. The open back gave it the perfect touch of sexiness. The lace has a weight to the bottom that gives a good-quality feel to it, and it flows beautifully as you walk. I am 5'7" 125lbs 32A and usually wear a size 2 dress. I wore the 2L with 3" heels and it was still an inch or two too long for my liking. My heels caught on the lace at the bottom when dancing, so I had to hold it up a little in order to not fall in my face.. As other reviews have noted, the top was loose and seemed to be a little stretched out but it was definitely still wearable. I wore an adhesive bra with this dress, which worked well until I worked up a little sweat. That plus the humidity had me worried that the bra cups would fall right off. Overall I thought this dress was gorgeous and photographed well. I received many compliments throughout the night. I gave this dress four out of five stars because it was a little bit higher maintenance than I would have liked and the lace at the top was stretched out.

Perfect, easy gown

This dress was incredibly flattering, and fit perfectly. I'm 5'4" and about 120lbs. I didn't have to wear a bra with it and got tons of compliments all night. The length was perfect and because of the high neckline, I didn't need a necklace. If you rent this, definitely get a purse that won't catch on the fabric!

Great customer service! Tons of compliments!

This dress was sent over night to me after I did not like the fit of my original dress- customer service was amazing!! I am 4"11 and normally size 8 in pants but I wear 12 in formal dresses because I have a large rib cage area. The 12 fit but was stretched out in the bust area and was a tad to tight so I decided to try the 14 and glad I did- I had breathing room and the top area fit me better. I would def size up if you are larger in the rib cage area and I had to temporary hem because it was way to long. I got tons of complements on the dress- I will def RTR again!

Just a touch too long

The dress was truly exquisite- however I should have ordered the 12R! But with no time left before my event, I made the best of it and with 4-inch heels, it was fine. I think I have my shoes off in this picture! It fit perfectly otherwise and if you're looking for a simple, yet classic way to make an entrance, this gown is for you.

I felt amazing and it looked great with the other bridesmaids, many of them also did RTR.

A little loose on top but fitted throughout midsection and below. Long on my 5'2" frame but worked perfect with 3-4" heels.
