Odd proportions

The dress is really pretty and I love the black/white contrast but the top part of the dress runs very large. I am a pretty consistent size 4, have a bust but not huge and a small waist. This dress was perfect at the waist but the bust and back were way too big. I tried to see if it could be pinned or taped in place with temporary seam tape because I really wanted to wear the dress but it juts wasn't going to work.

Elegant!

Stunning! Very classy and elegant. Got many compliments throughout the night. The back is gorgeous. I'm 5'9 130 lbs and wore the 2L. I was able to wear 4 inch heels and the dress was perfect length, which was something I was worried about.

This dress is gorgeous!

If you are bustier like me, I would suggest sizing up for your second size as the top didn't quite fall flat for me. The dress hides all the right things and I felt like a movie star. Tons of compliments. Would love to rent again!!

The quality and detailing of the dress.

I rented this to attend a gala. The dress was gorgeous. Like the other reviewers said, the zipper is difficult to pull up near the beaded waist and I had to have my boyfriend help me to get it on and zipped. But once on it is comfortable and looks stunning. I got a ton of compliments. I would recommend wearing hair up to show the cutout in the back of the dress and a black clutch and closed toe black shoes w/ small heel looked best IMO. Also i am tall (5'9) and would recommend getting the size long for others in this height range.

Having Hilary gumbel compliment my dress

Fit basically true to size, though on the 2 the top was too big. I didn't feel much of a difference in the waist size of the 0 or 2. The length was perfect for me at 5'6 in 3 inch heels. I got a ton of compliments on the dress and would rent it again in a heartbeat.

Perfect shimmer for a formal occasion!

Runs true to size and may even be a tad short for taller ladies. Beautiful silvery top that added the perfect amount of pop. We received compliments all day!

It was the perfect dress for a black tie NYE wedding.

The fit was true to size, a little too big in the bust for my little ladies (C-cup would be ideal). The length was perfect and I was able to wear heels! The skirt has pockets and I love the open back!

Stunning dress

The material is heavy and high quality, the back is incredible although gaps on the lower sides. No bra is needed but make sure you wear heels! I am about 5"4 and wore 4 inch heels and it touch the ground.

I was called the belle of the ball! Plus, it has POCKETS.

The dress is soo long and and the black half is so elegant (it HAS POCKETS). The top fit well and comfortably. Oh, it was a fabulous dress. It is effortlessly classy and the back of it was amazing. Plus, it is easy to dance in. I would wear this again and again if I could!

Everyone came up to me expressing their love of the dress!

I'm tiny on top and this was a tad loose around chest but to be expected with the back design. No one noticed except me. The length was difficult with my height. I wore 4 1/2 inch heels and it was still just a bit long. Had to pull the skirt up for stairs and walking. It's stunning and it has pockets! I received many complements.

Gorgeous Gown, Super Comfortable

This dress is to die for. I'm 5'6 and ordered the L, but I ended up wearing flats. I think it would've been fine with heels but anything over 3" it wouldn't have touched the ground. Love the pockets and overall fit, super flattering :)

Something about the cut and for of the dress just didn't work for me. Had a really hard time with the zipper as well. Ended up wearing a different dress.

Great customer service and on time delivery! Prepaid UPS return package was such a plus

I got many compliments on my dress. It fit perfect. it is little loose in the bust chest area, but you can play with your "girls" to make them fit and stay on the spot))) I had no issues with the zipper. I would use this rental again!!!!! Highly recommend this website and company. Thank you

Beautiful and comfortable

Loved the dress. Perfect for the occasion. Zipper was a little tough through the beads. The top is a bit large (I'm a 34DD), so that's something to keep in mind. However, I loved wearing it and got lots of compliments!

Felt like royalty with this dress on and received many complements from my colleagues.

This dress fits true to size. You need a backless stick on bra to keep the girls in the proper place. The chest area runs a little big but the bra helped fill it out. The arm holes are generous but did not detract from the overall great fit of this dress. The waistline is not forgiving so back fat may be accentuated! The skirt is wonderfully spacious, flowing, and forgiving. The pockets were a big hit for me. Saved money, time, and energy finding a clutch because pockets fit an iPhone 5, license, and cash easily without interfering with the look of the dress. The best part of wearing this dress is that it is insanely comfortable. I am 5'8" and still could not wear more than 3 inch heels to keep hem of the 8L dress close enough to floor. Rent this dress and you won't be sorry!!

So classy!

I wore this dress for my junior prom. This is my first time doing RTR and I was really nervous about the fit, but I convinced myself that it would be fine. When I received the dress it fit perfectly and the length was perfect with my little 2 inch heels (I am about 5'8"). Just to make sure it was looking its best I did steam the dress, I think it was only a little wrinkled because it had been shipped in a box. I received so many compliments about how classy my dress was! I did end up wearing an adhesive bra and I recommend that, although the material was thick I personally just felt more comfortable. The dress was comfortable all night and I wasn't itching to get it off by the end of the night! The return process was simple, we just put the dress in the provided envelope and dropped it at a UPS store. Overall the experience was great and I will definitely do this for senior prom!

This dress was hassle free, I got to wear my Docs with it (no heels needed) and went bra-less.

I loved this dress. No bra, no heels, minimal effort to look stunning. The dress was a tad tight in the waist, but I think it was due to my shape. I loved the material and the skirt. I had to pin the straps in the back because the front was very loose but other than that I'm glad I rented!!! Everyone said I looked stunning and I felt great.

It fit perfectly, it was a little long, but there are ways around it. The back is super cute! And the POCKETS ROCK!! I wore it with red shoes to have some color, I felt like a princess :)

The dress was stunning

I had to order 2 sizes up because it was the only one available but I didn't expect it to be so huge on top. I could definitely pull the sides out 2-3 inches in both sides. My mom had to pin it in the waist but we couldn't do anything about the top part since it had a pretty open back. It's definitely good for a full-busted woman but I did get a lot of compliments despite the over-sized top

The dress was very comfortable and beautiful.

This was a great dress to wear! I wore this for prom and was comfortable all night. It was beautiful and was a complete head turner. Although it was a little long, with heels it was fine. The only thing that I had a problem with was the bust area. It was a little roomy. But overall, it was a great dress and I'm glad I got to wear it to prom!

Elegant

Fits true to size. Was challenging to put on especially after having makeup done. I had to cover face from chin to hair to ensure that no makeup got on the dress. I got so many compliments with this dress. The fitted bodice and the full skirt just worked so elegantly together. The top fit so well that I didn't need a bra or nipple covers. A little gaping at the sides, but minor. Oh..and .pockets! Yeah, baby!

This dress was a stunner!!

This dress was a huge hit and everyone loved it. I felt so classy and beautiful for this big city gala and made a great impression. I wanted to keep this dress!! The fit was good, a little extra room under the arms but not that much where it was a big deal. I am so thankful the one size I got fit!! Make sure you have help getting it on, the zipper is a bit tricky at the beading where the fabric changes. Do not wear make-up when trying it on, with the criss-cross back it's easy to rub your face on it when getting in to the dress. I miss the dress already! Oh, I am short and I cannot walk in heels so I wore 3 inch super comfy heels and it was fine, just held it up when walking to the cab, etc.

Wore this dress for prom and received tons of compliments!!! You'll feel super elegant

Definitely a bit of struggle to put on but other than that everything ran true to size. The pockets were nice and big which was great for holding my phone etc. Such an elegant dress all around and once you turned around people loved it even more! Be careful makeup wise bc it will get on the white collar of the dress. Loved this dress.

Not only was this dress beautiful, it made me feel so elegant.

This was my first time renting and I love RTR. I wore this dress to my Senior Prom. The dress came on time the day before and I was comfortable all night. The back of the dress was the best part along with the pockets. I received so many compliments. This dress was a complete head tuner!

Beautiful, classy, practical, and comfortable!

This dress is simply gorgeous (and I wish I could've kept it for myself). The front and back are extremely classy, and it was the perfect gown for my senior prom--comfortable and perfect to dance in. The waist and bust fit snugly for me, and my only issue with the dress was that it ran pretty long; even in three inch heels, I kept stepping on myself. Other than that, it was an amazing dress and I highly recommend it! I got compliments on the dress all night! Also, IT HAS POCKETS.

Dress was so beautiful and comfortable!!

This dress is stunning!! It runs true to size. Like other reviews stated it did have a tiny gap in the arm area, but it was nothing major and didn't have me concerned. I wore this to my husband's company gala, and received so many compliments wearing this dress. The back is stunning, the front has pockets; what more could you want! I did not see the problem that a lot of reviews mentioned about putting in the dress. Yes, the cross back makes it slightly tricky, but if you unzip the side it wasn't hard to slip over your head. I LOVED this dress and would rent it again!

Beautiful gown, countless compliments all night long!

Im 5'5 and with heels the length was perfect. My bust is 34D and although the sides of the open back run a bit large the front bust was a little snug...which actually worked out for going bra-less. At 125lbs the size 4R fit perfectly.

So comfortable, elegant, yet effortless

Seriously, this dress has everything I ever look for in an outfit. It's classic, elegant, gorgeous, stunning, yet so comfortable and effortless. I always get a long instead of regular length when ordering formal gowns since you can adjust the length based on your heel height. My heels were probably 3" and the length could not have been more perfect. I did not wear a bra or any other type of coverage, but I felt like the fabric was thick enough to get away with that. This night is one of my favorite nights of my life - such a special night with my entire family honoring my dad induction into the hall of fame at his company. Such a special dress for an unforgettable night!

Beautiful dress, compliments all night!

Overall fit of the dress is true to size. I'm 5'8'' and absolutely needed the extra length. The bust does run a little large relative to the rest of the dress but I was able to use fashion tape to address. The dress is gorgeous in person, made me feel elegant and beautiful, and I received compliments all night.

OMG this dress is awesome

LOVED. Had to wear the 2 as the 0 was damaged and not shipped. The 2 was quite big especially up top - but I safety pinned a side and made it work. I loved this dress it was classic but edgy with the exposed back - so fun. Length was long but I'm short so I expected to as much. Wore high heels but had to carry the skirt as I walked but I didn't care one bit!
