Pros: Unique, flattering, timeless beauty Cons: A was a little afraid to "get down" on the dance floor because of how fitted it was - I was afraid I would tear the fabric.

Gorgeous dress, great customer service!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I rented sizes 4 and 6. I'm usually a 4. The 4 fit but it was just a bit snug, and I wanted to be more comfortable eating and dancing all night, so I went for the 6. This dress is so beautiful! I felt sophisticated and pretty all night. You did it again, RTR! Thanks for making another evening all the more memorable!

A Gorgeous, Feminine Dress for My Engagement Pictures!!!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress for my some of my engagement pictures, taken at the Brooklyn Promenade and Brooklyn Bridge. I love the boning in the dress, the sweetheart neckline and the lace detail on the chest and sleeves. It is the perfect balance of sophistication and femininity! I felt great in it, even without Spanx! It runs true to size, but I found the top of the dress to run small (and I'm definitely small-chested),, so if you're going to wear it to an event (as opposed to pictures), I'd recommend sizing up.

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I loved this dress! It doesn't have much give but it isn't to where it would be uncomfortable and I only noticed it while sitting. This dress is so beautiful on. I normally wear a size 2 so I ordered a 2 and a 0 and I wore the 2. Everyone complimented me on the dress. The pictures don't do it justice. This was my first rental so I will definitely be renting again! #classicdress

This dress was perfect for my engagement photos.

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small

Very pretty dress that is feminine and sweet. I found the overall fit of the dress to run small. We could not get the size six to zip up over my ribcage. You will need a strapless bra to wear this. Only criticisms were there was a small stain on the bust of the dress and the bottom under skirt liner hangs lower than the lace overlay which I didn't like. A little double stick tape along the bottom hem remedied that issue for me.

Perfect Bridesmaid Dresses! Compliments all day long!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
A girlfriend and I were selected as bridesmaids for a wedding with short notice. Rather than search for a dress and have it altered, we opted to both rent two different dresses from RTR and then determine which one looked better on. In the end, we chose this gorgeous dress to wear and we both received compliments all day and evening about how the dresses were the best that anyone has ever seen on a bridesmaid. The dress underneath is a simple tube style, but what really makes the dress is the lace overlay and piping details. The lace has cap sleeves that don't cut into your armpit and has a cute little cutout on the front. The piping accentuates curves but does not compete with the overall lace. The dress definitely leans more towards a pale blush pink rather than the ultra pastel shown on the site. I could wear the size 2, but gave that to my girlfriend and wore the 4. Either size would have worked, but the 4 gave my boobies a bit more breathing room. Both sizes of the dress hit at the bottom of my knee (5'-0" tall) while it hit mid-lower thigh on my 5'-6" friend. My measurements are 34D-27-38

loved the lace and color

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I ordered a size 8 and a 10 based on others' reviews. I generally wear a size 8 dress but couldn't wear this one. The top of the 8 fit perfectly with my hoots and shoulders, etc. but the booty/hips didn't work. So if you've got junk in the trunk this may not work great for you. Although it was a beautiful dress, I wouldn't order this again based on how loose the top was with the 10 (and my bust isn't that small).

The size 0 fit like a glove. The size 2 fit as well but for me the more form fitting the more flattering it looks. I was worried that I might get uncomfortable after a time since it fit so exact but I was comfortable all night. The only thing is that when I had to reach for something or just lifted my arms too high the lace around the arm holes would tear, no one seemed to notice but me.

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I ordered both the size 10 and 12. I decided on the bigger size just to be safe as I was standing up in my brothers wedding. The dress fit well but the lace around my arms was a bit delicate and started to wear a little bit. Overall though the dress looked and fit amazing and I got tons of compliments. I would definitely recommend this dress and rent it again.

The dress is beautiful however, it was a weird length for a short girl like me (5'1"). Even with high heels it looks weird! So I would not recommend it to anyone around my height!

I rented this dress for my mom's wedding. The color is beautiful! Both the 0 and 2 fit but I felt more comfortable in the 2 (better able to lift my arms and that sort of thing with the capped sleeves).

Received tons of compliments

Size worn: 4
Rented for: Wedding
Runs true to size, but has no give or stretch at all so I opted for the 4 instead of 2. Both fit well, but I wore it as a bridesmaid dress and new I would be dancing and moving around a lot so I thought to where the "bigger" option. I have a short torso, it bunched a little in the stomach area. The length was perfect for the occasion, hit right at my knee (I'm 5'2). I did not have the sleeve issue of the lace ripping which I had read a few reviews having that problem. Great dress!

So Girly and Pretty!

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I wore this dress for my wedding after party. I got married in key west and I needed something more comfortable to change into. I absolutely loved this dress! It was so girly but still conservative, which is exactly what I was looking for. The dress runs big, and the lace stretches so I would order one less size. I wore a size 0 and it was lose on me, also long. Ideally it should sit right below the knees, but since I'm 5' 2" it was a little long. Still a beautiful dress, I recommend it.

Summer Wedding Perfection

Size worn: 4
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is so pretty yet comfortable. I felt very good wearing it and was sad to send it back. The dress fits true to size. It's also a bit more coral toned than it appears in the pictures. The petal pink purse I rented to carry with it did not match. Not a problem at all just good to know ahead of time.

I wore this dress for my work's holiday party and got TONS of compliments.

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
I'm normally a size 10 and while it zipped up it was super tight (just like many other comments stated). I went with the size 12 which I could breathe in a bit more but it was loose up top - even with being a 34DD. I had to pin the top to my bra to make sure the bra didn't show. Really loved the dress though, very good material.

I struggle with dresses because of my big bust, I wore size 10 and it fit perfect, I could've fit in the 8 but it was really tight in bust area. The dress is gorgeous and looks extremely elegant. I was given a ton of compliments.

I absolutely love this dress! But be warned there is no stretch. The top of the 6 fit a little better but I wore the 8 for a some extra dancing room through the fitted hips. I wore it with the recommended earrings and silver pumps giving a classic old Hollywood type look. Could not have been happier with this rental! The entire top is lace and one of the dresses I was sent had minor tears but not noticeable while wearing.

Perfect, pretty dress to celebrate my birthday.

Size worn: 8
Rented for: Party
First and foremost, the dress is lovely. The pale pink color was flattering and the lace is pretty and delicate. I received numerous compliments all night. However, the dress definitely runs small. Fortunately, I read the reviews before placing my order and was able to size up. While I am typically a 4/6, I had to wear a size 8 to fit my hip area, as the dress offers little to no stretch. It is comfortable however, once you find the right size for you. A normal strapless bra worked perfectly. The other odd thing I noticed was that the pink lining of the dress is longer than the lace. It didn't diminish the beauty of it though, and I was happy to have it to wear during my birthday celebration.

Gorgeous lace, boning is beautiful but shows every bump

Size worn: 6
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was soooo gorgeous I loved the lace and the sleeves. The cut out was the perfect combo of a bit of fun but kept it conservative. However it didn't photograph as well, it showed lumps and bumps and I didn't like that. The pink color looks great with a tan. Another issue was the slip, it didn't always lay the correct way etc

This was my first RTR experience and I was not disappointed! I wore this dress to a wedding and got so many compliments throughout the night! I ordered both the 2 and the 4 to try. Honestly both fit, but I ended up wearing the 4 because it was a little more comfortable and a little easier to dance in. The lace and color on this dress were beautiful in person and I was so happy with my choice! I didn't want to send it back!

This dress was very classy and professional for my business presentation. The lace is beautiful. The silky lining was perfect because it didn't stick to my tights. The only real downside to the dress was the fact the bottom did not have a slit, so it was hard to walk up and down stairs. Really beautiful and I would recommend to anyone who wants to receive numerous compliments!

You can't go wrong with this elegant lace dress by Monique Lhuillier!!

Overall fit: True to Size

I wore this dress to a black tie work function and I received so many compliments. The dress is very comfortable and the lace looks even better in person. As always, Monique Lhuillier doesn't disappoint! I'm a little over 5'8, so I'm always concerned about the length of the dresses I order. This one however was a perfect fit. There's no slit in the back, which was great and I still had plenty of room to move about. The dress was a little loose around the shoulders/chest area but it wasn't anything major. I'd definitely recommend this dress. Great find!

I wore this dress to a wine tasting/wedding reception and it was perfect for the occasion and very comfortable. The one con with this dress was seam in the midsection area that didn't want to flatten out so it looked a tiny bit wrinkled. Overall I would definitely recommend the dress!
