This is so perfect -- lace dresses are a dime a dozen these days, but this one stands out.

The dress is a super beautiful vibrant blue, and I thought the fit was great. Fitted in the arms, but not tight. I felt comfortable all night, but the dress has great structure, so you don't feel sloppy. It's very well-made -- a total winner.

Beautiful and flattering, rich cobalt lace dress! Great for an early fall wedding.

Size worn: 20W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The photo on the website is FAR from accurate. In person the color is a richer blue, akin to a cobalt; the lace sits above a champagne sheath and some tulle. The dress has pockets, that I was worried would flare out at the hips. That was not the case, the pockets are blend in flawlessly in the skirt. I ordered a size 18 and 20. The dress is a bit of a snug fit in the chest and upper waist, the size 20 dress fit like a glove.

Genuine compliments from people about how much they liked my dress.

Size worn: 22W
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
First of all, I'm so happy RTR has plus size now. I've been wanting to rent forever, but nothing would ever fit me. I ordered this dress in 20W and 22W, thinking I'd definitely be wearing the 20W. Ehhh wrong, I ended up in the 22W. I normally wear a 1X in shirts and a 22 in pants, so when I wear dresses, they are always a size 20 - this was my first 22, but I was just glad one of my dresses fit. The arms are kind of tight, but I wouldn't be concerned because I have pretty big arms and they were fine. Also, the dress is a little on the short side, so if you're a bigger girl and your legs aren't your strong point, you may want to consider a different dress or wear black tights (I wore the tights). Overall, this is a beautiful dress. The color is much more gorgeous in person and I got a lot of compliments. It's heavy and well-made and it was so nice to wear a dress I really loved rather than settling for some Lane Bryant dress that I only bought because it fit.

This dress felt like a silk glove on me all night! It is so nice and comfortable. I felt flirty, fun, and not concerned with my tummy trouble area because of the A-line skirt. I would definitely recommend it!

The size 22 fit perfectly because I have big arms. I normally wear a size 18 or 20, but overall the dress fit perfectly but just a little short because I'm 5'9.

Wore this beauty to my husband's high school's Prom (where he teaches and xoaches). Got so many compliments! The color is so vibrant and the fit was great. I'm still "recovering" weight-wise from my 7-month old daughter and this dress made me feel beautiful!

I got so many compliments on this dress! It made me feel beautiful & confident!

Size worn: 22W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The color is what I would call "Kentucky blue", a saturated cobalt, which is beautiful! The dress was a bit short, even on my 5'4" height, but it gave me an excuse to show off my legs. The overall fit was perfect, and the a-line helped accentuate my waist while camouflaging my tummy area. Loved the luxurious lining and layers of tulle on the skirt. I appreciated having sleeves, because I don't love my arms, and they were not constricting at all. I love this dress and will likely be renting it again in the future!

Overall fit was good; I'm glad I ordered a size up though, because the arms in the smaller size were a little too tight for me to be fully comfortable. My favorite part about the dress was the pockets!!

I rented this dress for my friend's formal wedding. I'm normally a size 18/20, and I rented a 20 and a 22. The 20 was perfect - had a great fit but wasn't too tight or uncomfy at all. The dress flowed well and it felt comfortable to wear all night. I got a ton of compliments on the dress at the wedding, and on social media when friends and family saw the dress. I highly recommend renting this dress for an event.

Wore this for a TV interview with the necklace it's pictured with. It's a little short for me (I'm 5'4"), but others thought it was fine. Runs a little small. I'm usually ok in a 18 or 20, but the 22 fit perfectly (except for length). Love the sleeve length. Very flattering, just... Short.

Standout color, perfect dress for a more conservative wedding.

Size worn: 20W
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I loved the high neckline and sleeves on this dress because I have a few tattoos and I needed to cover them for a very conservative wedding. This dress did all that and more! I received so many compliments throughout the night. The dress does run a bit small, I'm usually a 16/18 thankfully I got an 18 and a 20 for my backup. Ended up wearing the 20, though it was still a little snug--but not uncomfortable at all! The ends of the lace on this dress need some touching up, but for this price, it's so worth it! Will definitely use this service again.

The dress is very vibrant - a true cobalt blue. The 22 fit easily even over my size 42DDD bra. Most of the reviews for this dress mention that it's short - they are right! The dress felt pretty short, but it's definitely cute and wearable for short girls (I'm 5'3ish and it worked fine with the length). It's great for a fall wedding. Might be a little heavy/hot for summer - it's fully lined and a pretty heavy dress in general.

I wore this dress to a wedding on a cool September evening. I got so many complements on this dress and felt beautiful in it. It was a little heavy, but perfect for a fall evening.

The fit was great. It was true to size. Not tight around my waist or hips and perfectly sized to my arms, which is always a problem for me because I have big arms. Overall, I didn't have any issues with the dress other than it being a little wider in my back than I needed. But it was barely noticeable. This dress was in great condition, the fabric was well kept. The dress was a hit, everybody loved it and thought that I looked great in it. Had a great night and I felt pretty and the dress.

Great Color

Size worn: 16W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I absolutely loved this dress and got many compliments the whole night! The color is a very vibrant royal blue, not what is shown on the model photos. And the other reviewers are correct, the sleeves are a bit snug, but I was still comfortable enough to dance. I was a bit nervous about the length from the reviews but it was a nice length for an outdoor wedding. I'm 5'5" and it was fine with flats or heels. It IS a heavier dress so it is definitely one you won't want to wear in hot weather. For my late September wedding we had 80 degree weather and I was a bit hot out in the sun but the dress was perfect for the cooler temps later in the night! All in all, a wonderful dress! I would definitely rent it again!

I am usually a 14-16 but had to size up to 18 in this dress. I figured I might have to because I'm pretty busty (40 G). The dress is fully lined so if your event is outdoor I'd recommend only for cooler temperatures. Way too hot for Phoenix!

This was a dream to wear! I loved the brilliant royal blue lace and the pockets! The dress was double-lined with nude satin, so no chance of seeing through the lace. The sleeves can be a little tight, but I didn't feel uncomfortable or restricted. Some people commented that the dress is a little short, but it felt just right to me. Would definitely rent this beauty again. I wished it were mine to keep!

The color is more vivid/darker than the photo indicates (not a bad thing just good to know). There are 2 light layers under the blue lace -one of which is very silky so no need for a slip- and is very figure flattering!

I felt great and got lots of compliments!

Size worn: 16W
Rented for: Formal Affair
My order came right on time in a great garment bag with some travel size toiletries. It was really nicely lined with satin and had four layers for the skirt. I wore it with nylons and nude pumps. It fit well and I felt great in it. I'm usually a 14 or a 16 and was a bit disappointed that most dresses go up to a 14 and then seem to switch to "plus" sizes starting at 16. So I ordered the 16w and didn't order a second size, risking that it would fit. Not sure what the W stands for, wide? However, you couldn't order it without the W. Luckily it all worked out. Just wish there wasn't such a jump. I did find the other reviews really helpful. I had read that the sleeves ran small, so I went to the size up. I will definitely be using this service again, it was such a great option!

I ordered this dress for my company holiday party. I went with a size 16W because I typically wear a 14, though I ordered a similar dress a few months back and the 14 was a bit too snug. The 16W was a bit roomy up top, but it worked out fine because it allowed for lots of movement.

I wore this dress for a New Year's Eve party and it was perfect! It is very true to fit I usually wear a size 16 in jeans and the 16 did fit but just was a little tight in the arms. The 18 would have been perfect but was not available when I ordered. I wore the 20 and even tho it was a little big in some parts it still looked great! The material of this dress was also great and I felt like a million bucks!

Lovely dress. Lovely compliments!

Size worn: 18W
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress made me feel beautiful! The blue color is so striking, and just like other reviewers pointed out, much more deep cobalt blue than what shows on the model. The lining is rich and silky. There's a nice hidden crinoline layered into the skirt. I also rented the necklace the model is wearing, which could not be more perfect with this dress and really kicks the whole look up a notch! I received so many compliments on this dress and the Mister loved it as well! I would have given this dress five stars, but I felt it needed a few extra inches of length. There is no bending down to pick up anything in this dress. If you enjoy burning up the dance floor, just beware that other people might get a show they didn't pay to see ;) But, altogether, this is just a lovely dress and very comfortable. It does run small in my opinion. Just to give you an example, I typically wear a 16 dress size. I rented two different dresses for two separate events I was attending on the same weekend with the same group of people. The first night's dress, I wore a 14w. In this particular dress, I wore an 18w. Definitely read the reviews and order a backup size!

Perfect pop of color!

Size worn: 18W
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was so great! I usually wear a 14, but ordered up because of the ML size chart, and I definitely could have worn the 16, but decided to be a bit more comfortable and went with the 18. It's a nice heavy material and a great pop of color - the pockets were great, too! I just had a baby, so the fact that this dress didn't cling and accented my figure was just what I was looking for! So happy I finally tried RTR because, as a curvy woman, wearing a well-made and well-designed dress does wonders for my figure and confidence.
