Everyone I saw that night loved this dress. It was comfortable, tailored and classy. The navy is just a bit different than traditional black. The open back gives it something special. Loved this dress.

Exactly what I wanted!

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was amazing for my law school formal event. It was exactly what I was hoping for and I honestly can't believe how perfect it was! I got a size 10 and 12 because, depending on the designer, I wear either. The 12 fit like a glove and I felt like it flattered all the right places! I was nervous about the open back since I have a larger bust and knew I was going to have to go without a bra, but the material is so thick that no one had any idea and it was incredibly comfortable!! I only gave it 4 stars because I had some trouble with the top back clasps. There are three clasps, and the bottom one was broken when I received the dress. Not the end of the world, I felt like it was noticeable but my friends said it wasn't. But the middle clasp kept coming undone and at one point, a big gust of wind popped the top clasp open. I was seconds away from giving everyone quite an unexpected show, but eventually my friend was able to squeeze them tight enough that they stayed for the rest of the night. The color is much more navy than the picture and worked really well with some nude and red accessories. It was a gorgeous color, gorgeous dress and I received SO many compliments! I think I even recruited some new RTR users. I am seriously going to look into purchasing this dress I loved it so much! Thanks RTR for a great first experience! Can't wait to rent again.

this dress was "a best match" sent to me overnight because my first choice did not fit. I was not disappointed. It is a nice fitting dress, elegant, very appropriate for a wedding. Dress comes right at the knee on a 5'4" frame. Can't wear a regular bra. Hooks in the back are fragile.

breathtaking !!

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Fit perfect. .probably could have done a 10. Could have worn a strapless bra - but felt comfortable w/ the boning (which is unusual for me because I go NO where without a bra). I was a nominee and while waiting to get up on stage 3 women commented on my dress (and there were some showstoppers there). Went to event w/ 8 other women and they were all floored - 3 of them have already booked dresses for upcoming weddings and galas. There's always a little fear taking a chance on an online order - and I had never done anything Ike this before - but Everything was easy. I actually ordered my original choice so late on wed night that it wasn't going to make it to me before I left for LA - so RTR shipped me this dress and another FREE to my hotel. Could not have been happier with the dress and the service recovery!

This dress was super comfortable and didn't get hot at a summer, night-time wedding in Los Angeles (granted we were indoors). I'm 5'7", 132lbs, and normally an 8 in the hips but a 6 in the waist and bust, and the 6 fit great if not still slightly large overall. I would definitely recommend this dress in any of the colors it comes in though this dark navy (that photographs much brighter than it looks in person) is beautiful and classy.

How many times have you spent a small fortune on that "perfect" dress then never worn again?

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Fit true to size. Hugs curves, has a slight stretch, very comfortable. The dress fit perfectly, was extremely comfortable, very feminine and classy. I usually wear a 2 and I wore a 2. The only downside is the snap at the waist was broken. I received my dress at home while on vacation. Came home two hours before needing to go out of town for an evening wedding. We needed to get an emergency repair done by my local tailor. This was very inconvenient. However, RTR reimbursed my expense and responded immediately to my concern. Customer service is outstanding. And other than this small glitch, the entire process from ordering to delivery to return was efficient and seamless! I'll definitely rent again from RTR!!!

Perfect for dinner date. Very flattering.

Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Date
This dress was my trade in after my original dress was too short. The dress was very flattering. I wore a strapless bra, but had to keep adjusting as to not have it show in the back when I sat down. I am not sure if this dress runs big, as I have recently been losing weight. I think I would have been better off with the 12. Overall, a very positive experience. It's hard to imagine an occasion where I didn't use RTR. Thanks guys!

Loved this dress! It's very chic yet also sexy. Had several people ask me where they can get it. Keep in mind it is navy - can look black on the site. It runs true to size, but also has some stretch to it, which is nice. The only problem is that the lace does tend to snag on bracelets/jewelry - but with this dark color, it wasn't anything noticeable. Would definitely rent this dress again in a different color!

This dress was elegant and beautiful - perfect when I was officiating a dear friend's wedding!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
This dress does run large, so even though I was nervous about getting my back-up size in a 4 (rather than an 8), I was glad I did! The 6 was much too big and the 4 fit perfectly, with plenty of extra room in the waist. Definitely required a petal/sticky bra which i bought for $30 at target. Also the color was beautiful. Looks much darker on the model than it was in real life. The back of this dress is gorgeous. I got many compliments throughout the night -- Wish I owned this one!

I rented this dress for a wedding and absolutely LOVED it!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The dress was very elegant and classy. It is sexy without showing too much skin. It fit true to size. At first I planned on wearing a strapless bra with it but the back showed when I sat down so I ended up not wearing anything and it was fine. The dress was slimming and I didn't have to worry about "sucking it in" all night. It was comfortable to sit and dance it. I received a million compliments! I would love to own this dress and am tempted to rent it again already.

My size falls in between a 2 and 4, depending on the fit...and I was able to wear the 2 with no issues at all - it was actually a bit roomy! You need to wear nipple covers or a sticky bra with this dress. It's absolutely stunning in person. Got compliments all night long!!!

Love this dress! made me feel classy and sexy at the same time. Got so many compliments!

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I ordered a 12 and 14 and the 12 was perfect. I am curvy and have a hard time finding a good fit. The dress was delivered at 4 on the day before the occasion and fit perfectly. The only complaint I have is that when people put arms around me to take pictures or I raised hands while dancing a few of the hooks came undone. However, I did not have any embarrassing mishaps. I think it was just because the lace may have stretched from all the uses. The length was perfect for a woman of my age (41) and classy. I was concerned that the back would be too revealing but it was not at all. Sexy but not trashy!. I did not have to wear a bra because the material of the dress helped with keeping the girls up. Highly recommend this dress.

Great Dress for a Wedding

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I received this dress after my original dress had been returned too damaged to send out. It is a really great dress for a wedding. I am giving it one less star because one of the dresses I received, the chest area was really stretched out and I was self-conscious about it all night! The dress might be more appropriate for those over the age of 35-40 who would like to have a dress that is a little longer as well.

I had a hard time choosing a dress for an early October wedding. I decided to give #rtr a chance and have to say it was an awesome experience!! I love that you can pick two sizes- I fit great in the size four, but with my athletic shape, my bottom and quads fit better in a 6. This dress was beautiful, lightweight and so classy. The back was even more beautiful- which I unfortunately did not get a photo of :/ . I got endless compliments all night, not to mention a ton of label-envy when I admitted it was a Monique Lhullier!!!

I loved this dress for an evening wedding. I would have worn the 12 but the hook and eye was broken. I was able to wear a bra with the 14 so that made it a perfect fit. The back is beautiful! Be aware of the top hook and eyes, as previously noted they do un hook rather easily. If you are having any doubts about this dress forget them this is the dress you want!

Loved this dress! It was so elegant and classy! I knew that this style of dress wasn't ideal for my body type (pear shaped), my hips are about 1 size larger than my waist/bust but this dress actually fit pretty well! It was a little tight through the hips and could have been a little more snug through the waist and bust, but again I sort of already assumed that would be the case just simply because of my body style. It looked great and had enough give where you couldn't tell that the fit wasn't perfect. I got so many compliments on it! So sad to send it back!

The dress for great, I'd say it runs a little big. I am usually a size 4/6 and it was very comfortable. I couldn't wear a bra with it so maybe that's why it felt looser then normal. Great Length if you are tall. It might be a bit long on shorter ppl. It's a great dress.

Great New Year's Eve Dress!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
Sorry for the not so good photo, but it was the only one I took where you could see the whole dress. I rented this for New Years Eve and it was comfortable and flattering. I have bigger hips and a smaller chest and it did fit well although it rode up slightly when I would go from sitting to standing. I thought it was pretty and fit well without showing too much skin. My only issue is the back is just low enough where it's tough to find a good bra to wear where it isn't showing.

Perfect Winter Wedding dress

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Great dress for a winter "black tie optional" wedding. My only complaint was that 2 of the 6 hook and eye latches were missing a part, and with the back being lace you couldn't just put a saftey pin to keep the dress together. More RTR not checking than the dress being bad I guess. Overall, it fit me very well. I would suggest a larger chest with this dress otherwise it could look ill-fitted in that area.

Gorgeous Dress--Horribly Stretched Lace

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
I got this dress in a size 6 (my usual dress size) and an 8 as my backup size as suggested by customer support.. the size 6 fit perfectly--everywhere except the chest, the lace on the top was incredibly stretched out--so much so that the size 8 actually felt smaller than the 6. I got this dress for engagement photos and luckily the photographer was able to pose me so it wasn't such a big deal that the lace on top was loose. It's a gorgeous dress and the perfect length.. I just really wish the top hadn't been so stretched out--it would have gotten 5 stars if I had been able to wear the 6 and have it actually fit properly.
