This was such a beautiful and versatile dress.
I'd ordered two dresses from RTR for a weekend worth of wedding events. This dress could've been dressed up for a formal event or, as I did, made fun and sassy with funky jewelry and a more casual hairstyle. I'm generally a 6 or an 8, and, after reading reviews from women of similar height and weight, I went the the 8. It fit absolutely perfectly and was comfortable when worn for an extended number of hours. The dress was in excellent condition and I was delighted with my rental from start to finish.

Lovely dress but small
I needed a bigger size. But I'd rent again, it looked like it would have been perfect one size up.

Didn't wear it
Was planning on wearing this to cocktail attire event, ordered 12 and 14. The 14 was unavailable to me days before it was due to arrive. The 12 was just too snug for me to spend an evening in it. Disappointed, it is a beautiful dress. I wore a black dress I always have on standby.

Party dress at work
So I did initially rent this for a black tie affair, but it does not have the sheer mid section that the stock images suggest... So it was more appropriate for work. Great for a formal/finance environment. Lots of compliments. This dress was a little worn out though... Would only rent once.

Gorgeous flattering well-made dress -does not look good with a tummy
I wore this dress to a rehearsal dinner and received numerous compliments. It is beautiful, well-made, classy, expensive looking... But even with high waisted Spanx, if you have a tummy, this is not your dress. Pronounced "le hu lee ay". Always be able to pronounce the designers that you wear

I fell in love with this dress! :-)
My husband said "honey, do you want to buy it?," deed fit perfectly and it was perfect for a gala event it needs minimum accessories if you are going for elegance. Sorry i didn't have a pic with full body but I was told by every "wow." I'll definitely rent again from RTR.

So many compliments in this dress
I rented this for a gala I was auctioneering for because teal was their signature color. I received so many compliments on this one. I was worried it would be too long on me since I am only 5'1", but it looked great. While it had little give at the beginning of the night, it seemed to stretch a bit as the evening wore on. It still fit like a glove and was super flattering, but I could have fit in the next size down. I would order this dress again in a heartbeat!

Perfect fit
I have wide shoulders and want to hide my mid section while still looking tailored. This dress fit me perfectly. The length was very modern hitting right below the knee. I felt very comfortable and slim wearing this dress.

Classy and beautiful
I rented this for a fall wedding in Colorado. I loved the color. Perfect for fall. It was not forgiving in the stomach and I was postpartum. So, I had to size up. Overall, I was very happy with it.

Beautiful dress
The color is beautiful and the material is good quality. Fit perfectly. The lining was very nice and looked sheer, but was just opaque enough that o could wear a regular bra underneath. Loved the dress so much I wore it to a party the next day! I did not find the sleeves to be too right or too restrictive.

Not the best fit for curvy
I did not wear this dress because it was too small. I think curvier woman should consider choosing at least one, if not two, size(s) up. Well made and quality dress.

Great for a Holiday season Wedding
The dress fit a little larger than I expected-especially through the sides-but it was a nice length and warm for a winter wedding. Both festive and elegant for the holidays!

Worth the price
Loved the look of the dress - very sophisticated for an evening wedding I attended. However, this was my second time ordering because the sizing was horrible. I'm usually a 10, but the 14 was what ended up fitting. It's also layered so be prepared to be warm. Overall, it was great for the price.

Gorgeous, comfortable, and modest
I was in a predicament a few days before a wedding when I realized that my huge post-pregnancy nursing boobs rendered my usual evening/cocktail dresses indecent. This was my first RTR experience, and the dress was perfect: fit great, comfortable, modest, and really pretty. I am 5'8", 133 lbs, 36D, and have a pretty straight build with broader shoulders. I'm usually a 4 or 6 but rented the 6 and 8 based on reviews that the chest runs small on this dress. The 6 was perfect, plenty of room to move and dance. The lace across the chest/shoulders is a double layer with good coverage so I was able to wear a regular nude colored bra with no problem. The length was just to the bottom of my knees.

Beautiful color, beautiful fit. Classy but sexy!
I loved the dress I am normally a size 2 but the sleeves fit my arms a little to snug for me. But the size 4 fit great only issue was it was kind of loose in the midsection. Other than that it was perfect I was comfortable the entire night I got so many compliments on the color and how it fit. I absolutely loved the length I was worried it was going to be to long since I'm a solid 5'4" but perfect. If only I was a baller I'd totally buy the dress !!!

I felt beautiful.
There wasn't too much of a difference between the 6 or the 8, except for in the arms/shoulders so I went with the 8 to be a little more comfortable. I also just had a baby 8 months ago so if there was any extra room in the tummy I wanted to allow myself that breathing room. The color was gorgeous (although it didn't photograph well because of all the ballroom lighting). I'm tall and the dress actually hit where it was supposed to at the waist/hips/length. There is not much stretch to the dress but I felt comfortable all night in it.

I wore this as my wedding dress and it was stunning!
I'm 45 and this was my second wedding so I didn't want a white dress and instead chose this gorgeous number. Our wedding had a sort of dark, moody woodland theme and this dress in a rich teal color fit in perfectly. Even though it ran small ( I'm a solid 8 but I wore a 10 in this dress), it fit beautifully and everyone gasped when they saw me in it. Would rent again for sure!

Nice dress
I wore this dress for a wedding and it was great! The sleeves are a little tight just as described from previous renters, but overall fine. The only downfall was the armpits in the dress smelled already so I had to use febreeze on it before I wore it. That's not right! Maybe they should get rid of dresses that can't be dry cleaned really good for the next person.

Compliments galore.
I normally wear a size 4, but opted for a size 6 after reading reviews that this dress runs a bit small. The 6 fit like a glove, so definitely order up a size. The color was gorgeous. The fit was comfortable overall but a little stiff due to the length. I got a lot of compliments on it. It was perfect for a fall wedding.

Classic choice - great fit & color.
Not going to be the star of the show but it's a solid choice for a fall work event. Loved the color and it fit great. I thought the skin showing through the lace would show more of a visible contrast but I still liked it.

Dress was perfect for the fall Manhattan wedding I attended. My only complaints were that the sleeves were a bit tight and the stomach bunched a bit. Otherwise it fit great.

Fall wedding perfection
Wore this to a family wedding in October and felt comfortable and classy all day. Rented in both the 4 and 6 and ended up wearing the 4. The 4 was a little tight in the rib cage where I am widest and I couldn't quite lift my arms over my head, but the 6 was a little too roomy in the hips where I am narrowest. The lace overlay hits below the knee, but the liner is above the knee so it's modest without being matronly, perfect for cooler temperatures. Came in great condition even though it's been available to rent for a long time, great bargain rental!

Fit well. I ordered a back up size that was clearly not dry cleaned, bag ripped, smelled like perfume and human. Thankfully the bigger size was clean and fit perfectly.

Perfect color for a fall wedding!
The dress arrived with a tear in the shoulder but I was able to mend it. I contacted RTR and they made it right. I just wish the quality check was better as this in the 2nd time I've received a damaged item. Now for the dress, I got so many compliments, and it fit like a glove thanks to my spanx (the real hero). It was a little tight in the shoulders and I have pretty narrow shoulders so I suggest going up a size as your backup.

Gorgeous but runs small
Gorgeous color. Runs small, and larger size was unavailable. So I couldn't wear this. Gorgeous , sophisticated dress though. No give at all in the dress , so size up definitely.
