I could barely take a step without receiving a compliment!

Unfortunately this is the only pic I got of the full dress- the party was that fun! I stood out from all of the black cocktail dresses. I received countless compliments and felt amazing. It's true to size at the waist and then gets very poofy- which was nice for me bc my stomach is my worst area. Comfortable and gorgeous!

Loved this dress! Was perfect for a New Orleans wedding.

Couldn't wear a regular bra due to the low back but didn't need to. The material was thick and fitted enough to provide support without one. The pockets were fabulous and you'd never notice them if you didn't know they were there. I would absolutely rent this again!!!

So many compliments...

I absolutely love this dress. However, I thought the skirt was going to be a silky material but it was ribbed. The pockets were a bonus since I could store my phone without anyone noticing so I could snap pictures on the dance floor. This dress was only tight in my rib cage but the 10 would have been wayy to big. I highly suggest this dress for a formal event!

Beautiful, classy dress!

Wore this to my cousin's April wedding in Louisiana and got many compliments. The fit is true to size, and the skirt has lots of room. The back does come down just a touch too low for a regular bra, so I wore a strapless, but the dress had plenty of support so it wasn't a problem for me.

Belle of the ball in hot pink and pockets to boot!

I got so many compliments on this dress. Loved the pockets for easy access to my phone. I wore a six as I usually do. You can go silver or gold with accessories which is convenient for last minute styling. The sequins under the arms are a bit annoying but if you're on the dance floor with your hands in the air all night-you will quickly forget how scratchy they are. I am pretty flat chested so I went without a bra due to the low back and it was fine. The top is fitted enough to get away with it! Wish I could have kept this dress. Maybe I'll have to rent it in black next time.......

A pop of color to stand out in a sea of black dresses!

I got compliments all night long. It just looks expensive! It fit like a glove. It was a tiny bit irritating with the sequins but not too bad. The color is way more hot pink than I expected but honestly I loved the pink better. The dress was modest and classic but not boring - I really stood out. It was way better in person than I expected! Loved wearing it all night!

Pink Perfection for the Kentucky Oaks

So comfortable and great camouflage for a belly - no need for spanx! Order your regular size - I should have exchanged for a 4 but did not have time and it was tighter around my waist and ribs than I would have preferred. Got compliments all day and felt like a star!

Gorgeous color and great fit

Wore this dress to a black tie fundraiser event at the zoo in New Orleans. It felt great. Has a low back, so normal bra wouldn't work. I probably could've gotten away with no bra at all. It fit true to size. Really accentuates your waist and the full skirt is great for pear shapes like me. Have to admit, I was a little uncomfortable after eating due to the tight waist band, but I honestly expected that. Thanks RTR!! Great experience with my first rental!

I had been eyeing this dress and was so happy to finally wear it

I loved this dress- so much fun to dance in and it has pockets!! The sequins underneath the arms didn't bother me on one side and the other side it was a bit uncomfortable. The high/low in the front/back of the dress was more noticeable in the smaller size but that one was also shorter in the front which made it less comfortable for a wedding.

This backup dress was perfect!

Pockets were fun, color was beautiful and high-low hem felt young and classy (and floor length gowns were too long). Wore this to a black tie preferred wedding reception and couldn't have been happier. I didn't notice issues with sequins rubbing on arms as others have mentioned. I paired it with earring and bracelet from RTR. I would recommend this and would rent again. Stylist Brenda suggested it and I'm so glad she did. RTR customer service is unbelievable. At 6pm Friday, I called and dresses were in my house at 10am.

Pretty dress, great color

I was a little worried about the cut of this dress being unflattering but it looked great. In the end, I wore my backup dress because I liked it a little better but I would definitely rent this again. The zipper is a little tough, but it's worth a little elbow grease.

Very distinctive dress, very comfortable (can wear normal underwear), compliments all night!

Rented this for a gala I was running, so I was looking for certain criteria. Color had to stand out (nobody can find the woman in the black dress when something goes wrong), had to be comfortable, had to be festive but not too sparkly as I was speaking from a lit stage, and had to have pockets (I can never fit everything I need in a clutch and a purse is impractical). I was a little nervous renting this because it is so different from the things I usually wear, but this dress was perfect for what I needed. The color was appropriate for a spring gala and distinctive so vendors, ticket buyers, and volunteers could all easily find me. The skirt was roomy enough that the dress is incredibly comfortable (and you don't have to squeeze into spanx on a hot night). The pockets were so deep that I could easily fit everything I needed without it being obvious I was carrying anything. It looked great against the velvet curtain from the lit stage. And people loved it. I can't tell you how many compliments I received. It was a fun dress to wear, I would rent it again!

This was my first time using RTR and I love it!!! Excellent customer service & good quality.

True to size, got the best dress after the brides compliments and it was so comfortable, the only thing is that the beading on the top part will scratch your arms if you dance and have as much fun as I did in this dress. I used this dress to go to a wedding and it was perfect! I chose this dress because I wanted to use something elegant but yet not a gown.

I wish I owed this dress!

I got this dress for a wedding during Memorial Day Weekend. After a shoulder injury and a bad New England winter, I have gained about 15 lbs. and was nervous when only the size 8 was available for the date needed. The dress fit well but I would have liked it to be a little less snug around the waist. Had I been my normal size, I would have been between the 6 and the 8. But the bottom was classy and comfortable. Also the pockets were structured so well you couldn't even tell they were there. Other than that, the dress was wonderful! I received so many compliments and stood out from the crowd. My boyfriend even said I was the best dressed guest. If I could purchase this dress, I would. I'll definitely be renting this again!

I felt amazing in the dress. It is flattering and comfortable!

The dress was a tad snug around where the top ended and came in, but that was mainly only when I was sitting. It is very flattering and comfortable. Although, I did have to iron the dress before wearing it because it was very wrinkly when I got it. So I would be prepared for that! I enjoyed the dress and I would've boughten it if I could! It was also much more pink that it looked in the pictures which is a beautiful color pink!

The dress arrived on time and was in great condition with no wrinkles to speak of.

I ordered this as a backup in case I didn't like the other dress I ordered. I was so close to choosing this dress because it is so gorgeous and flattering! It looks much more magenta in person, which I loved!!! Online it appears as more of a merlot color. The only reason I didn't choose to wear this dress was because it wasn't very comfortable in my rib cage area. The size 0 was a tad too tight, but the size 2 seemed a tiny bit too big. It would be difficult to wear a bra with this because it cuts pretty low in the back. Even though I thought this dress was a little uncomfortable, I would recommend trying it out. It really is beautiful!

Uniqueness of the dress.

I could have fit in the 4 if worse came to worse, but the size 6 was more comfortable. The picture online made the dress look more on the red side. Sequins also hurt my arms from rubbing on them all night. Pockets were perfect for carrying my phone and lipgloss in.

Convenience and quality items!

This is my first RTR experience and it was great! This dress was so much fun to wear. The fit was great (a little loose in the chest area, but I'm a 34a) but great overall. I have a long torso so the waistline of the dress hit higher than my natural waist (on the ribs) so I had to size up to 4 to be able to take full breaths. The color is gorgeous and can be accented with silver or gold accessories.

Loved this dress for my husband's cousin's wedding! I received so many compliments :) It did run a little small in the chest, so I wore the size 2 when I normally wear a 0. They length was perfect - very classy!

I don't think I've ever received so many compliments as I did when I wore this dress!

I was worried when I received the dress that is was going to be too fancy for the wedding I went to, but it was Perfect!! The zipper ended at the widest part of my body so I had to use the 12 . The 10 for better in the skirt and top but it all worked out. I didn't wear a bra which worked out fine with the open back. I was glad I own a steamer because the skirt was pretty wrinkled when I got it. Oh and also, the pockets were so great and useful for the wedding!

The color and fit was fabulous!

Received the dress and it was even more gorgeous in person!! It looks red online but was more of a raspberry color which was fine with me. I ordered it in a 6 and a 4 because the reviews stated it was true to size. When I went to try it on the 4 didn't fit so I tried the 6 on. I could get it on but it was really tight around the upper waist area. I ordered early enough so if I would have an issue, I could get the next size up. I call RTR and they had the next size and could get it to me by noon the next day. It arrived by 11am the next day and it was perfect! It was comfortable and I loved the deep pockets to carry my phone! I received tons of compliments! This was my first time using RTR and it was an awesome experience! Would definitely order again!

Pockets!

Anytime a dress has pockets I am on board. This dress was great for the wedding I wore it too. I was able to go braless which is rare for me! You don't need a lot of accessories because the dress speaks for itself! Got a lot of compliments and talked up RTR to other guests. Would rent again.

Gorgeous, Classy, Sexy, and Fun.... With Pockets!

The only complaint I had was that the size 8 was a little itchy under the armpits because of the sequins... And the pleats on the back near the butt fit weird... Even know the 8 fit I ended up wearing the 10 because the underarms didn't itch me as much. Also I didn't need to wear a bra and the pockets were the best... I got tons of compliments all night!

It's sooo easy to look great for a wedding with rtr!

The skirt portion of the dress had some wrinkles that were not part of the pleats and I could not got them out, but is was still a great choice. The dress is very fitted at the natural waist, the 10 was more comfortable for me, and I usually wear an 8.

Worked with the stylist over the phone and she was great! Arrived on time in a great bag.

This dress was beautiful quality and color. For true to size. I'm short and larger on top than the bottom so the proper fitting top made for a very full and longer skirt. With that and the high neckline and fancy bodice I felt like the dress was wearing me and I decided not to wear it. If you're the same size on top and bottom and not as short as me it will be a standout dress.

Wore this dress while I emceed a distinguished young woman program and its the perfect mix of formal without trying too hard. Received several compliments and the dress was so comfy! I've seen a few reviews that the sequins itched their arms but I didn't have this problem at all. Love the pockets!

I ordered this as a backup dress but didn't end up wearing it. The fabric and color are perfect for a holiday event, but it wasn't ideal for a summer wedding. I will keep it in mind for a formal winter wedding!

Received so many compliments in this dress!! Absolutely loved it!

I ordered the 0 and a 2. I normally wear a 0 but this top ran a bit small on top. I do have a small bust and thankfully the 2 fit like a glove! I was worried about the fabric on the bottom upon arrival as it is easily wrinkled. After steaming the dress the wrinkles were still noticeable. I used an iron on low heat and that did the job. From pictures the dress doesn't even look wrinkled which is a plus!!! I felt sexy and elegant and would definitely rent this again!!

Classy and fun all in one

The pattern/texture on top hide the fact that you aren't wearing a bra (because you can't due to open back) but I recommend boob tape just to hold things up as there seems to be extra material on the top and can look bunchy and saggy if you don't have perfect posture at all times. The full high-low skirt makes the dress more fun and the somewhat open back makes it a little sexy. Love the dress and highly recommend for a more formal event!

Effortless but classy look.

Beautiful dress, I thought it was initially supposed to be red but when I received the dress it has a pinkish tone to it, which was even better. I wore this to a friends outdoor wedding in Los Gatos and received compliments all night. The dress was a little tight in the rib cage area but still manageable to wear. I enjoyed the pockets in the dress as I didn't have to carry a purse. I wore a regular bra with this dress but the dress has a low back so I had to push the back strap down. Overall, I was very pleased with the rental!
