The dress was excellent and I got a ton of compliments on it at a winter wedding.
It does run slightly small but only in the arms. I usually wear a size 8 and the 10 worked great in this dress. Extremely flattering and beautiful.

Beautiful dress! I wore it to a work Christmas Party and everyone told me how stunning it was.
I ordered this dress a size up because of all the reviews I read on here about how it had no give and was tight on the arms. I had no problems with this dress. It still fit great even though I went up a size. It is heavily lined so if you rent it for a summer event you might get hot quick. I got many compliments on how pretty this dress was and on the color. It is more blue in person and the photos don't do it justice. I wore it with nude heels for a work Christmas Party. I would definitely rent this dress again and look forward to renting other dresses in the future.

Lace, sleeves, pockets, and a bold color: this dress was PERFECT for a winter wedding!
The sleeves on the 12 were way too tight for a night of dancing so I ordered the 14 as a backup size and was thrilled with how comfortable it was.

Got so many compliments on this dress!
The dress was a tad snug compared to other 14s I've worn, but once my husband had me zipped in, I felt like I could wear it all night long and be comfortable. I helped my mom set up for the party in it, danced in it, everything. Got a lot of compliments all night long. Will definitely rent this one again!

Loved this dress. Perfect color, perfect fit. And bonus! Pockets.
The color, fit and length of this dress were all great. I paired it with a necklace for my sister-in-law's wedding. Was very pleased with the dress and received many compliments. Not only was the dress comfortable for a full day of activity, and a night on the dance floor, it photographed well, too. Loved the pockets. The length was not too long, nor too short. Would definitely recommend this dress.

Beautiful color with a fun, lace look
I rented this for NYE and really enjoyed it. The color is a really rich green that the photos don't do justice. The cut is flattering and hits right at the natural waist with pockets. I really enjoyed this rental - my first time with RTR with plans for more in the future.

This was our annual "fancy dinner out with friends" in lieu of Christmas gifts :)
I loved the color - which was more of a greenish-blue than a true emerald green. It fit nicely in the top and was fitted in the arms, but not too tight. It hit me perfectly at the knee (5' 4" and 140 lbs). My ONLY issue with the fit is that the waist hit in the wrong place - it either needed to be a inch higher (like an empire waist) or about 1.5 to 2 inches lower, at my natural waist (I don't have a long torso or anything like that).

I rented this for Christmas Eve with my family. It has a flattering cut, even after all the food I stuffed my face with. Only reason it's not getting 5 stars is the lace was ripped in some areas.

Not the same as the blue RTR dress!
I wore the blue ML dress to a previous wedding and rented this dress thinking all that was different was the color. This dress was still nice, but I did not love as much as the blue dress. This dress is a bit more full in the bottom and the material is not forgiving at all. I usually wear a 0 or 2, but my arms barely fit into the size 4. Nice dress, but order up!

I wore this to a Christmas wedding in Chicago, and got lots of compliments.
The fit was true to size and the color of the dress is absolutely beautiful! The dress does fit snuggly in the arms, so I would suggest ordering a size up for back up.

Beautiful dress!
Could've worn the 4 which looked better but was too tight in the arms/upper body to move and dance at a wedding, so I wore the 6, which wasn't quite as flattering but was more comfortable. Still got lots of compliments and felt very pretty this vibrant and unique piece.

This dress was great! Loved the lace!
I enjoyed this dress a lot! I felt like a million bucks! I had no issue with the arms being too tight and thought the dress ran true to size. I wore this to a work formal Christmas party - it was nice because it was longer in length so I didn't feel inappropriate in wearing it with coworkers. Would recommend it, I loved it and was sad to send it back!

The color of this dress made my heart skip a beat! The pictures really don't do it justice!
I ordered this dress because of the reviews. I wasn't crazy about the online pictures, but it seemed to be a crowd favorite, and it did not disappoint! The dress fit wonderfully, and was comfortable (bonus points for pockets!). I can be self-conscious at times, which means that I sometimes dress like my grandma. This dress provided the appropriate amount of coverage without me feeling frumpy (my girlfriends would be proud)! Based on others' reviews, I was worried about the fit for my bust/arms, but that wasn't an issue for me with this dress.

You should not be self-conscious- you have a great figure! Thanks for the review. :-)

Lovely color
I usually wear an 8 in these dresses, which is what I wore, but I ordered the 6 as a back up and wished I had had the 10 to try on. The sleeves are definitely tight and I couldn't lift my arms above shoulder level which wasn't a big deal as we were at a work Christmas party and there was no dancing involved for us. It was a little shorter than I would have liked but I'm 5'10" so that's not abnormal. Overall I liked this dress, but it wasn't my favorite I've rented. It fit for a more casual Christmas party and was comfortable for the evening.

I got this dress for a Work Holiday Party. It was perfect length to be cute but work appropriate.
It fit really well. I didn't have a problem with the sleeves being too tight. It was about to my knees in length.

Great party dress!
As other reviewers said, there is very little stretch in the shoulders and arms, so I ended up wearing the larger of the sizes I ordered. This dress is a beautiful color, and easy to wear. Since I had to size up, the dress felt a little heavy (the smaller size was more flattering around my waist, but moving my arms is important!), but otherwise I liked it and got tons of compliments!

This dress was perfect for a fall wedding.
I wore this to a wedding in Maine. It was perfect for the season and I was getting complimented all night! I ordered a size 4 which is my normal size and a 6 just in case. The 4 was a great fit. The arms didn't bother me but if you are worried about the arms being tight I would order a size up.

This dress made me feel beautiful and comfortable at the same time!
Love, love, love this dress!!! The fit was great, definitely true to size. I should have gone with the 0 just for a more fitted feel. But the 2 was still roomy for dancing and sitting without looking like it was too big. I would recommend this dress to anyone! Very flattering with the cut and color. It flared out just above the waist, so it didn't cling to my hips all night or ride up from walking in it. No tugging on this dress to keep it in place! Only con I have is being petite and the dress coming just below my knees but for a winter event, I was glad it was a tad longer. Dress was warm and perfect for a December wedding! Had many complements all night! I may rent this again for another event, that's how happy I was. :-)

I rented this dress for Thanksgiving dinner.
I typically wear a size six and ordered a 4 as a backup. I could not fit my arms into the sleeves of the 4 so I went with the 6 which fit wonderfully. Please keep in mind the sleeves are snug so if you have larger arms you may want to order up. I highly recommend this dress.

I wore this for a Baptism and received a lot of compliments on the dress - I'm very glad I chose it!
The dress fit very well & was comfortable. The only issue was that it flares out at the waistline a bit so I looked like I had a bit of a stomach in some of the pictures.

Rehearsal Dinner
This was a really cute dress, the teal color was a little darker than it looks in the picture. Sleeves were tight and didn't seem to have any stretch, I don't think my arms are that big. Boobs were a bit tight too, I'm a full 34D, definitely should have sized up to a 10. I only had to wear the dress for a couple hours so it wasn't too big of a deal but could not have worn it for an entire day. The pockets were great!

I wore this to a sorority formal and I loved it! The only thing was that it was a little longer than I would've liked. It was just above the knee where it was described as running to midthigh. Other than that the dress fit perfectly and was beautiful!

Having a gorgeous dress!
This fit like a glove. Wasn't too long as dresses often are for petite women. The arms were a bit tight but I didn't have a problem on the dance floor. Super flattering for a short curvy figure. Color was a bit brighter than I expected but it was perfect for a winter wedding. Would recommend.

Classy, beautiful teal color, different than the regular little black dress
THe sleeves were a bit snug, but nothing that bothered me, just felt like it was supposed to be that way. The waist fell right at natural waist and was very flattering. I am very full busted, and short waisted, and I was a little self conscious maybe it was a bit too tight over my chest, but I always feel that way! The overall lace detail was gorgeous, especially eyelash like lace at hem and sleeve edges. You dont need a lot of accessories with this dress as it speaks for itself! I was worried it would be too short, but it was a great length even with my long legs! I usually am an 8 or a 10, and I wore the 10. I wore the Laura Merkin snake clutch and Ella Carter Dan earrings from RTR and they were a perfect compliment to the teal and beige that peeks through the lace. Dress has structured layers and shapeware is really not needed. I was a little warm in it on the dance floor, but overa ll for a November wedding, this was perfect!

Another great rental! I just love how easy and affordable it is to use this service!
This was a great dress. I wore it for a bridal shower where I was s bridesmaid. I really enjoyed how it was fitting at the top and was flowy a the bottom. The pockets were awesome! I got a ton of compliments. The only con would be the sleeves had no give. I am an athletic built and I lift weights. My arms are bigger due to muscle and I felt constricted in the arms. Eventually the dress did stretch -a little. Other than that I was comfortable. This dress was awesome.

This dress is beautiful! Not too short and not too long. I really felt like a princess. It is full on the bottom and I'm pear-shaped but it still fit great. It photographs more blue than it really is. I paired it with nude heels and a vintage belt.

Absolutely gorgeous.
I rented this for a wedding, but, unfortunately, wasn't able to attend because my daughter got sick. I did try it on, however, and found most critiques about this dress to be true. The green is a more emerald bordering on dark teal, but it is absolutely gorgeous. It's just thick enough and hid just the right things (no need for Spanx!) The arms are definitely tight (and a lot thicker fabric than I envisioned), but I imagine I would have gotten used to them as the night went on. The 8 felt a little large elsewhere, but didn't look like it swallowed me whole. Definitely size up if you're worried about the arms! I rented the Kendra Scott gold Jill necklace to go with this dress and it looked great with it.

Perfect for a fall wedding!
This dress fit very nicely. I wore it to a friend's wedding, and got several compliments. The fit was very flattering. I am usually and 8 or 10, and the 8 fit perfectly. Being a 34DD, it's sometimes hard to find dressed that fit my bust and also flatter my waist, but this was perfectly tailored to highlight my waist. Even though the arms/bust were not snug, I could not lift my arms fully without pulling the entire dress up.
