Gorgeous!
I can't say enough good things about this dress. I wore it to a graduation and it was perfect. The colors are so vibrant and the lace is such great quality. My dress came with a seam out and a hole so RTR quickly sent me a new item. If your between sizes, size up with this designer and with this lace since it has no give. It's very classy and still on trend. Highly recommend!

So unique!
This dress is gorgeous, be ready for compliments. It fit perfect for reference I am 5'7", 132lb, 34b and I wore my usual size 4. The only drawbacks were that I had to completely unzip the dress in order to go to the bathroom and the neck was a bit itchy. Both of these things were minor problems and would not keep me from renting the dress again. I could not have been happier with my first rtr!

Great wedding dress!
Perfect true to size fit, great construction & quality & comfortable. The looser fit top was great to camouflage any tummy area issues. Received many compliments & would rent this again.

Oh my! Loved this dress!
I wore it for a Valentines Day date night....PERFECT! I loved the way this dress fit. I'm thin but very straight, sort of thick through the mid section. The top section of this dress definitely concealed that issue.

Great rental & great color
I rented this for my sorority's 50th anniversary party. I knew I wanted it immediately when I saw it, as our color is pink. It was perfect. Some reviews mentioned the fabric around sleeve & collar to be itchy but I didn't find that at all. The fabric is a bit thick, so may not work as well in summer or outside. It was fitted at hips & bust so may want to size up for backup. Due to thick fabric and structured material I did not need to wear a bra. It was comfortable all night & I received several compliments.

This was pretty snug in the hip area! Definitely needed the Spanx. Pretty material & color combo, but not a flattering cut for my body.

Classy and stylish!
Beautiful dress to wear to a more conservative wedding ceremony. In person, the raspberry color is even more beautiful than it looks online and the contrasting lace patterns are gorgeous together. I ordered size 8 and 10, and the 10 fit great and left me a little more room in the hips! I did not experience any itchiness with the lace. I was able to do a little dancing but nothing too crazy. Highly recommend for a more conservative event where you still want to feel stylish!

Felt heavy and makes you look heavy.
Didn't love this dress. Wasn't originally available in my size so ordered a larger size. The top half widens at the waist and so made me look wider in that area. Also material and lining is heavy. Overall didn't love.

Beautiful but
I understand I'm a little short so this review may be biased. I feel like it's not as flattering because I'm petite. I felt like the dress was a tad bit too long and didn't mold the body like I'm used to dresses fitting. I still received many compliments but that's because the dress is beautiful. Picking the shoes to wear was the tricky part. I would have gone with size 0 but given the situation, I decided to go for a looser fit so I wore the 2.

First time I've ever gotten a compliment on a dress I wore to a wedding!
Fits pretty true to size - my back and shoulders are broad so I chose 6 instead of 4. It looked elegant, different, fun, an all-around great dress.

Unforgettable dress for my University graduation!
This dress was really great! Arrived right on schedule and was clean and wrinkle-free! I am usually between a 2 and a 4, but I ended up wearing the 2. The dress was a great fit, but the neck fabric was very small and itchy. Other than that the dress was perfect! It was very easy to move around and sit in, and was a gorgeous addition of color to my graduation regalia!

I loved this dress
This dress ran true to size! I have big hips and a booty, so it was a big snug there but the next size up was way too big. I felt so pretty in this dress!

I wore this dress to a women's cancer awareness event. This dress was a hit! I received many compliments. I orders the 2 and 4. It fit perfectly after sizing down to the 2. I would recommend this dress for a professional event.

Loved the look of this dress
I loved the style of this dress and it looked great on - but there were a few draw backs. I was pregnant (but only about 4 mos) and there is HUGE variability in the sz 12 and sz 14W. I mean - really - like there should be a size in between. I ended up wearing a 12, because wearing this dress too big isn't an option; it needs to be snug to look good. The other consideration is that the fabric is very rough and the collar can be very constricting. Again - looks great, but if comfort is your thing, this may not fit the bill.

Felt glamorous.
This dress was exactly what I was looking for. It was different and I got all kinds of compliments. My stomach looked flat and that is my problem area. The wedding was at a golf course and I stood out in the sea of navy and earth tone dresses without looking like I tried. I love this dress!!!

This dress was awesome. I felt like a million bucks. I got so many compliments. GREAT midi length. I'm 5'8 and it hit me just below the knees. If your neck and chest are easily irritated though I wouldn't recommend it.

Gorgeous colors and a pretty silhouette!
A stunning dress in person, the colors are so vibrant and the style (while definitely a more modest look) is classic. I did not actually end up wearing the dress, however, because while very pretty, the dress has zero to no give and I knew I would be dancing up a storm. I would've also have had to bring someone with me on bathroom trips to help with the tricky zipper. I am size 8 in normal clothing and went with the 10 in this. An 8 would've been too tight in the chest/ribs, as many designer dresses are on my body type, and the 12 I ordered as a back up was just too big and had too much fabric to be flattering.

Beautiful dress that is great mix of classic elegance, with a modern unique twist!
This dress runs small and there is NO GIVE in the fabric. I would suggest sizing up from the regular size you usually wear. The color and lace are beautiful and I got compliments all night! I loved the classic lace, with a modern and unique twist. The lace around the neck is very itchy but as long as it isn't too tight it is bearable. Another successful RTR event!!

Pretty colors
I'm 5'7" and typically wear a size 4. The dress was true to size. The top was almost a little too big because I'm fairly small-chested (32B), but the bottom fit well, so I don't think I could have gone down a size. My backup size was 6, so I didn't even try it on.

Gorgeous dress!
I absolutely loved this dress! I think it fits pretty true to size but there isn't much give in the lace. The colors are gorgeous, as are the lace patterns. I received countless comments throughout the night! I've always had great customer service with RTR! There was a hiccup with my tracking number and although I wasn't worried about receiving my order, RTR took the initiative to send me backups just in case.

Great dress for wedding. Unique/bold colors, gorgeous lace.
Overall, I was happy with the rental. It looked great! The lace and lining has NO give. This wasn't an issue for the most part, just getting in and out of car, pulling up to go to the bathroom, etc - was a little harder than normal. Otherwise I was comfortable and received LOTS of compliments.

The dress fit well, but keep in mind there is no give in the material. I am 5 foot 9 in and this dress fell below the knee.

The dress was beautiful but I could not wear it! I am petite, but hips were very narrow for me.
This was just too small for me in the hips. I'm 5'2", 120 pounds and while every part was really a great fit, the hips were too tight. I had a hard time walking up stairs, so didn't wear it in favor of something with an A-line shape. Will order earlier and try on sooner next time!

Very high quality lace!
This dress ran a little small--I'm normally a size 4 but ended up wearing the 6. I could zip the 4 up all the way, but it wasn't comfortable. I received a million compliments on this dress! The colors are gorgeous.

Beautiful color pop!
This dress is so much nicer in person. The colors are so bright and lace and floral detail is so standoutish and pretty. I love the high neck collar also. I wore a size 6 since I'm more pear shape and RTR saved my life since my original dress was not available last minute and they sent me extra dresses the stylist chose and overnighted this dress that I selected and I was so HAPPY! I can't thank the staff enough for saving my night and being so attentive with emails and making sure I made the ball. The material is just beautiful and the picture doesn't do justice. I'm petite but it fell about mid calf but it didn't bother me. FYI: Just make sure you have someone who can help u zip the back cause the bottom is to fitted to just lift up for the bathroom breaks.

Great dress, runs slightly small on bottom.
I wore my usual size 4, but the dress is very fitted through the hips. So fitted I struggled using the restroom during the wedding. Fabric was high quality, but a a little heavy for a summer wedding. But, the dress was beautiful and I received lots of compliments.

So many compliments
The zipper was a little tough and I definitely could have worn the 8 but I opted for the 6 because it showed my figure off more, while the 8 was a little more frumpy looking. There are some pulls in the lace of the dress but nothing that is noticeable to anyone else. Also, this dress has to be put on from the bottom up or the lining gets tangled, this could be problematic for some larger bottom girls.

The fit is spot on. I was a 2 and it fit like a glove. Made me look fabulous and on TV as well. I highly recommend this dress you could wear it to work then go to a cocktail party or event afterwards.

Stunning dress, flawless rental process
This is a beautiful dress...I was very sad to return it! Arrived when it was supposed to (very well packaged). Ordered size 4 and 6, and the 4 (my typical size) was perfect. While the fit is narrow, I had no problem dancing the night away. The lace was very rich looking and in perfect condition. Weird detail: the dress actually smelled good which I wasn't necessarily expecting (this was my first rental). I received many compliments on the dress and would highly recommend.

Beautiful Fit, Pretty Lace, Dense Fabric with silk on the inside
This dress was AMAZING, especially in person! The lace was beautiful and it looked like a quality fabric dress (I'm not sure if that makes sense, but the dress felt "regal"). Very comfortable, very fitting, long for a formal affair, it hit mid calf of my leg. Was not disappointed at all and everyone gave compliments :).

Amazing dress for a wedding guest!
I got a million compliments on this dress! It was super flattering, the colors are beautiful, the textures are to die for, and the best part is you can still dance in it! This dress did run a little small in the hips and bust, so I had to go up to an 8 from my usual 6. I definitely recommend it!
