For statuesque proportions

This dress was the perfect length for my long frame. I felt comfortable and elegant at the semi-formal event. The 3/4 sleeves and length, as well as the subtle shade, made it feel conservative while still stunning my husband.

Pretty lace and color

Sleeves are tight and it was snug across my broad shoulders. Awkward length for someone who is 5'3. Not my favorite but it did he trick

This was a great dress for a 50 year-old...not "too old" and not "mutton dressed as lamb".

I usually wear a size 6, but this is an 8, and you can see how well it fit!

Loved this dress for a formal wedding!

This was the perfect tea length dress for a wedding where I probably should've been in a full length gown, but the lace made this fancy enough!

Tight arms, normal fit bodess

Ordered the 6 and 8. While the 6 fit in the body, my muscular arms felt like they couldn't move so I wore the 8. Overall - I felt awesome in the dress. Very modest yet sexy at the same time.

Gorgeous color and perfect length, especially for someone who is tall. Comfortable as well.

My original order was too short and luckily my event was in NYC so I walked in to the store front and was able to exchange on the spot. So glad I found this dress! It wasn't too hot to wear in August but the color could be worn any time of year. It hit my knee and arms were slightly snug but it probably would have looked weird if they were loose. I will rent this dress again!! Loved it.

Very pretty color with slimming fit

True to size. I have pretty broad shoulders so the sleeves were a tad tight, but not uncomfortably so. Paired with gold jewelry and nude sandals

Classy, sexy and sophisticated!

I wore this dress for our anniversary dinner. We went to an upscale restaurant where my boyfriend had to wear a tie and jacket and this dress was the perfect choice. I usually wear an 8 or a 10 and the 8 fit perfectly and comfortably. It hugged my figure in a way that it highlighted my curves, yet slimmed my entire look. I didn't have to wear a bra. The color is great and I felt very elegant. My boyfriend asked if I could buy it...so I guess he also liked it ;).

Beautiful color for Fall

Loved this dress and the length was perfect for someone with curves. Only snag was that the lining kept shifting/peaking out from under the dress in the front. But that was nothing a little tug couldn't fix. Definitely recommend!

Loved the color!! It made my eyes look amazing!

I loved this dress! The color was perfect for s fall wedding; I did not want black and this was a great solution. I felt very classy and elegant without being over the top. I wore a size 4 - it was a bit snug in the chest area / armpit but I wear a 32DDD so that was to be expected. The dress also had the right amount of give - sometimes lace dresses can be stiff and uncomfortable.

The color is absolutely gorgeous deep jewel tone emerald and gives a regal look.

It was a little loose in the bottom which is fine with me because I could eat more haha. But it give you enough shape and space and not very form fitting. Then again I'm pretty tall and this dress went past my knees.

Nothing bad to say about this dress. Being 6' tall it was a great fit for me. So comfortable and didn't have to adjust anything all night. No problems when dancing either!

Dress was such a perfect fall color!

I am a usual size 6 so I ordered 6 and 8, tight in arms.... Tried the 8 on after the 6 and the 8 felt tighter!!! So I would say order two sizes up because the 6 & 8 I received weren't true to size

Lacey elegance

This was my first RTR experience even though I've known about the site for years. Must say, I wasn't disappointed! Very easy process. This dress is absolutely gorgeous, and I received so many compliments. I thought it was perfect for the Fall wedding I attended. Beautiful color and flattering fit. I am shorter (5'4") so the dress hit me mid-shin, but I actually liked this because it was at a good level when I sat down. Comfortable material, I was afraid the lace would be itchy but it felt great. I wore a strapless bra but I definitely think you could get away with black bra straps and still preserve its elegance. The only thing I had trouble with was getting in and out of vehicles, not a lot of stretch so I had to pull it up a little to get a leg up! Ha! I would definitely rent this dress again and certainly plan to keep using RTR. Thank you!

Elegant and classy

At first, I wasn't sure about the dress. Mostly because of my height (I'm 5'2"). As soon as I added a belt, it solved everything. Very comfortable fit and true to size. Others complained the arms were tight but it wasn't an issue for me. Great dress for when you need to be elegant and sophisticated!

Gorgeous color, perfect for fall!

This was a beautiful dress and I received many compliments on it. I'm usually a size 4 or size 6, however after reading the other reviews and seeing the trend that the dress is tight in the arms, I went up a size and really glad I did! I have an athletic build and a size DD chest. The size 6 was too tight in the sleeves which made it difficult to move my arms so I opted for the back up size 8. The dress was a little looser than I wanted, however I was able to move my arms! If you're to rent this, I recommend going up a size of you have a larger chest or arms. I'd also pack a pair of high heels, the dress length will really pop.

Heartbreak at a wedding

This was my first choice to wear to a family wedding. It's a color I know works well with my coloring, as well as a silhouette I know I can pull off. Alas, I could not get my boobs to fit into the dress. I was heartbroken, because it was JUST. BEAUTIFUL. Lesson learned: Monique Lhullier doesn't necessarily design for curvy girls :(

True to size. Beautiful teal color for the winter.

Size 4 was too tight for me in the arms area so insides up to 6. I'm usually a size 6 in dresses. Other renters with my measurements were able to fit smaller sizes. Good thing RTR has free backup sizes. I would size up for backup. Great for weddings because it's stylish yet conservative.

Fit perfectly and loved the color.

I felt like the arms ran small. My body could have fit in the 4, but def not my arms. The 6 fit fine though and I loved it. I am small chested and could see someone with a larger bust having issues. I didn't have to wear a bra, which is great in my world, but I know that's not possible for others. I will definitely rent again!

Perfect dress for a Fall wedding!

Love the color of this dress. I wore it to a Fall wedding and received tons of compliments. I'm on the petite side so the dress was a little long to my liking but paired with some strappy heels and a belt and it became the perfect dress. Love Monique Luhlier!

I wore this dress to Thanksgiving and I got lots of compliments. It fits like a glove and is very slimming. I would size up for your backup size.

Just what I wanted!

Fit pretty much true to size. Depending on your body type - I could see you possibly needing one size up since it is form fitting. Loved the dress though and got lots of compliments!

Didn't end up wearing the dress.

The dress is tight in the bust area for women that have a bust size 34 F or bigger in a size 10. The arms were also tight so it would make it very uncomfortable hug people and eat dinner at the wedding. The dress color was beautiful and the length is perfection for someone that is 5'6. I would recommend this dress just make sure to order your exact size and a size up.

This was one of the most beautiful dresses I have ever worn!

Absolutely stunning dress. I received so many compliments and felt beautiful in it. It was very comfortable. Not too tight and just long enough. I ordered the 10 and the 12. The 10 was a little tight but the 12 was perfect. Highly recommend!

This dress was incredibly flattering! I was able to wear a regular, nude bra with it and didn't need a strapless, which was nice. Received tons of compliments!

Felt very classy

I wore this to a black tie optional wedding and got tons of compliments. It is very classy, I love the length! You can easily match jewelry and shoes to this little number which makes it a great rental in my book! The arms are a bit tight but I could still move and dance just fine.

I loved this dress. It was classy and appropriate for a company Christmas party.

After reading other reviews about the dress running small I ordered a size 10 and 12. I should have ordered the size 8 and 10. I ended up wearing the 10. I don't think other people noticed it was big, but I knew it. I felt so pretty in this dress, it was exactly what I was looking for. The arms were not tight on me at all.

Some shapewear helps a lot, and a good strapless bra. This dress is great if you want to feel pretty, yet modest.

There is not a lot of give in the shoulder area but the fit is so flattering otherwise. It made my waist look so tiny and the color is to die for!

Didn't work for me

I rented this for a Christmas wedding. Dress was true to size and in great shape, but it just didn't work for me. I could not find shoes that looked "right" with it and I felt like a grandma in the dress. I think it's meant for a curvier figure. If you're tall and narrow, I would avoid this dress. It's a beautiful dress-- just didn't look right on me.

Wanted something long and appropriate that I could wear to Christmas Eve mass that covers everything yet is still fun. This dress was perfect and I wore it with reddish heels...so fun! The picture was taken after Christmas meals were consumed.

Great experience! Dress was as described.

As you can tell by the model photo, the dress is fitted. I ended up going with the larger size because it was more comfortable. I added a gold belt and received many compliments. The color was gorgeous! I wore this to a non-profit fundraiser.

Great for our first night out after having our little girl!

The customer service is the best I have ever experienced. I chatted with a rep twice and both times they were helpful and responsive with assisting me with my questions. The dress was beautiful but like previous reviews the sleeves and chest area are tight and my particular dress had a lining issue that caused it to be longer in the front than the lace.

Beautiful dress for a special occasion!

This was my first RTR experience and it was great! Delivery was right on time and came in a convenient dress bag. Really glad that RTR provides a second size for free. I'm usually a 0 but added the 2 since it was free. Ended up wearing the 2 since the dress runs a little smaller than usual. I'm petite but even the sleeves on the 2 were almost too tight. Overall very happy with my rental and got lots of complements. Beautiful dress and made me feel special. Will definitely plan on renting for my next occasion. Great experience!!
