Loved the dress
Fits true to size. Arms are a bit snug which makes it hard to zip up by yourself. I thought it was gorgeous and would have loved to have kept it!

Comfortable and stylish
I wore this for my best friend's bridal shower at a country club in early spring. The dress was very comfortable and fit me well. I liked that it was flexible for the time of season, because it was cold outside and had just gone from winter to spring. I felt like the body style was flattering for my shape but made my chest look a lot bigger. Also, I wish I had worn my hair up because looking at the picture now, I think it would have enhanced my look.

Beautiful, classy dress!
I got this dress in a 16W and a 14. I wore the 16W because I have a rather large chest and the 14 didn't accommodate it. The dress is beautiful and fits so well. The other reviews talked about the sleeves being tight but I didn't have that problem. Loved it and got compliments all night long!

Comfort, easy process, great affordable price and excellent quality!
This dress fit me like a glove, I read the reviews from others and went based on that and ordered a size up just in case. I only needed the size I wore because it worked out perfect! The color of the dress was fantastic and the quality of both the dress I wore and the backup size were phenomenal. I got so many compliments from men and women on the dress and fit that when I told them that I rented the dress from RTR, they said they were going to do that next time! I think the dress runs TTS and the inside lining of the dress is this fabulous silk material which just adds to the comfort and luxury level!! If you're thinking abou this dress to rent, DO IT!!!

Beautiful color and lace, but not flattering on large hips
I rented this for a party but ultimately chose to wear my free upgrade instead. The color is a deep turquoise and the lace is feminine and fun. The bodice was perfect. However, I didn't like how the skirt looked on me with my hourglass figure. I thought it might look much cuter on someone with smaller hips or a generally slimmer frame.

Beautiful dress for a fall wedding!
Like some of the other reviewers mentioned, the sleeves were a little tight on my arms. I had to size up from my original chosen size 10, but the 12 fit perfectly! I'm 5"0, and the dress hit right around my knees. The dress was very comfortable and easy to dance in, and I got tons of compliments throughout the night! I did notice some snags on the lace throughout the dress, but I figured this is bound to happen when renting. It was barely noticeable. All in all, I would definitely rent this dress again!

Love this dress!
I had previously rented this dress in blue and loved it so went green for Christmas this time. I'm typically between 12-14 so went 14 which worked out perfectly. There is a little wear and tear with the lace but if anyone else noticed, no one mentioned it. The dress got a lot of compliments. The dress is comfortable and the pockets make it even better to wear all day!

Was a hit at the Christmas party I wore it to. Gave an old Hollywood glam vibe.
FIT: Zipper was problematic, it got stuck on the way up. Arms are a little tight, but not uncomfortable. STYLE: Nude platforms, added a skinny gold belt for definition. Gold and pearls earrings, necklace, bracelet. MAKE UP: Neutral face pallette with MAC Viva Glam Red lipstick.

I absolutely LOVED the flow of the skirt portion of this dress.
There are lovely lace details on the sleeves of this dress. I wanted to add an accent belt where the skirt meets at the waist but didn't have anything available at the time. Overall the color, detail and fit were great.

Fun and flattering dress
I loved this dress and the pockets! The only problem I had is that the bottom portion of the dress is pretty full, so it made my hips look a little wide. I would still recommend the dress as it's fun, comfortable, and such a gorgeous color!

Stylish and comfortable
It was a little snug on my arms initially but once I got it on I felt great. I got lots of compliments on the color and the dress. Loved that it wasn't too restrictive. We had a big steak dinner and then dancing afterwards and it felt great all night. Unfortunately, didn't manage to get pic of me at the party, so pic is a little crappy.

Bold color
I have really fat upper arms and this dress made me feel great. Fit great. I wore controlling under garments just to even things out. I love bold colors. So if you're not in to drawing attention, this color may not be for you

So pretty
I was very happy when this dress arrived, the color was gorgeous, more of a teal color than green. The dress fit very well, true to size. I received many complements on the dress at the party I was at. One thing with this dress, you need to be careful of jewelry because my necklace kept getting caught in the lace. I was really happy the rental and it was a really good choice for my first RTR experience.

Really cute dress!
This was super cute on! I went with a 6 just because this designer runs pretty tight in the arms and it was a good choice. That made the waistline a little looser than I wanted... but it still fit nicely. If you have bigger arms, I'd suggest going a size larger.

Felt like Cinderella!
I adored this dress! My husband actually whistled when he saw me, Ha! The fit was pretty spot on, in usually between an 18 and a 20, depending on fabric and cut. This dress fit like a glove in the 20, my arms felt fine, which I was concerned about after the other reviews... I was able to dance the night away perfectly! Highly recommend this rental! Tons of compliments and even more importantly the dress makes ou feel like a real life Cinderella!

Super comfy and had pockets!
Everything about this dress was perfect for the 2 weddings I had back to back. Comfy, cute, and practical since I was in the middle of moving! The ONLY complaint is the same as what others have said before me, the arms are too tight. I know I have fat arms and many clothing items that fit my body are always snug on my arms, so this was not an unfamiliar situation for me personally. Even though the arms were tight, that did not make it unbearable at all. Just be careful not to move too sudden or high with your arms. If you plan on catching a bouquet I would not recommend this dress lol ;-)

great dress, was a fun color for a cocktail party, loved the lace
Dress it a great color, but didn't fit the best for those with a long torso. it flared out above my hips and made me look large. Would be a very pretty dress if I didn't have a long torso. As others recommended, wet up a size.

This dress with stylish, classy and beautiful!
I wear this dress to a wedding rehearsal in November, it was very comfortable and warm. I received a lot of compliments. I loved the vibrant color and the feel of the dress. It had my midsection well which is my main problem area I am a 36 D cup usually wear a size 6 but chose a size 8 as a backup. I did not have to use it at all. I would definitely recommend this dress to others.

Loved the pockets!!!
I chose to size up and wear the 8 to have the sleeves and chest fit more comfortably. I was able to wear a normal bra which is a plus. With a larger chest, 34DD, I'm typically hyper aware of the necklines I wear and hope they are not too revealing. This dress covers up but made me feel covered up but fun and beautiful at the same time. The color and length made me feel confident all night. I received many compliments that night and from the photos posted later. Definitely rent this! I rented a necklace but it hung too low that I just went without and it worked great.

Elegant in lace!
I rented this and another dress for a ballroom dance weekend at a nice resort/hotel. I wore this one on the "more formal" of the two evenings as the lace lent a nice elegance to the dress. Although it was a shorter dress, it worked for the formal night and allowed me to dance without stepping all over a long gown. My only complaint was that the torso, which was quite fitted, creeped up repeatedly as I danced, being that my arms were raised to shoulder height. Assuming most people wouldn't be in a dance frame all night, this wouldn't be an issue!! I have a larger chest/ribcage, and the 10 fit very well, not too snug at all. In the 8, the sleeves were too tight for my arms as it is lace (not really any give) and they come to the elbow. The dress was otherwise quite comfortable and breathed quite well for being fully lined. And the pockets are ALWAYS a bonus for me in a dress.

Non-stop compliments all night long!! Total confidence booster
Ordered this for a small wedding in the mountains. The top is a little snug if you have a larger chest definitely go up a size. But once on so comfortable and flattering. People stopped me all night long complimenting me on the color and style. I felt great!

Beautiful color
This was my first rental and I was very nervous about the size. After reading a lot of the reviews I rented the 6 & 8. I ended up wearing the 6, overall it felt great. Wasn't too tight or too loose. I wouldn't say it was the most flattering fit, but I felt very comfortable. The sleeves were tight, and loosened up throughout the night. Loved the pockets! I received many compliments.

This dress is fabulous!
I read the reviews before I committed to the dress and read about the arm portion of the dress being tight. Although the arms are a bit snug, I was able to move them around like normal and I definitely don't have the skinniest arms! I couldn't get a back up size because it was not available, so I banked on my regular size of 8 and it fir perfect! The dress is super comfortable and has pockets in case you don't want to lug around a phone or other miscellaneous items. The color is very complimentary and got so many compliments throughout the night.

Beautiful color dress.
This dress was beautiful. Very well made. Fit my body great! However, the sleeves were quite snug, so that brought my rating down. I don't recall reading other reviews about tight sleeves, so this was disappointing. I wore the smaller size (2) because it fit my body much better. The size 4 was too big on my body but the sleeves were just as tight. I have small arms, so anyone with a bit more muscle would have been quite uncomfortable and maybe not been able to wear the dress.

Great for a Fall outdoor wedding!
I usually wear a size 2 or 4 dress, and the 4 fit perfectly. Since I am 4'11", the length was long, but it was perfect for a wedding. It was super comfortable. The sleeves were snug, but not uncomfortable. I received many compliments on the dress!

Comfortable and stylish (non-maternity) dress while pregnant!
I normally don't wear a size 12, but I wanted to ensure that the dress would fit since I am 4 months pregnant. I usually wear a size 8, but all of my clothes are starting to fit differently now! The size 12 fit really well, and I was very comfortable in it all night. The dress even hid the baby bump, which didn't matter for me, since everyone at the wedding knew I am expecting, but if you are looking for a dress that won't make it super obvious that you are pregnant, and want to be comfortable and stylish, I recommend this one! The color in person is more of a blue/teal, and not as green as the picture on the site shows. I loved the actual color more than the picture on the site!

Wore this dress to a rehearsal dinner and it was a big hit! Beautiful in person and amazing fabric.
This dress is easy to wear and a beautiful shape! Perfect length/age appropriate for late 20's early 30's girls! Only negative is I was unable to wear a bracelet or necklace as it snags the lace overlay.

I loved how warm this dress was for an evening wedding in California. Perfect color too!
I am approx. 107# and 5'2 and size 0 was too fitting, but 2 was comfortable for eating, dancing all night. I worried it would hang too low, and it was perfect. I wore with black shoes without necklace or belt and it was perfect. Loved it did not need special bra. The pockets were an extra detail I loved because I could hold my phone inside. Would recommend for anyone attending a fall wedding or evening wedding near the coast, like me.

Love the lace
I rented the Alice dress earlier in the year. Therefore, when I had an upcoming wedding invitation and the dress I wanted to rent was not available this was an obvious choice. the Dress fits very well over my large bust and is flatter at the hips. Love the pockets too! Will continue to rent this dress in every style and color available.
