So elegant!

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size

The gorgeous lace detail and open back make this dress a showstopper. It was a great fit, and I think would be good for any shape/size. I wore nubra seamless adhesive bra, but you could also wear the low down bra back converter by Braza if you want to wear your own bra. I paired it with this Oscar de la Renta necklace, it would look great with any statement necklace! You can't go wrong with this dress!

This dress was extremely comfortable and elegant! I got compliments all night!

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore a size 4R and the length was perfect with my 3" heels. It fit perfectly snug on my bust so I didn't have to worry about a bra. I never go braless and with this dress I was able to! I'm a bit broader in the shoulders but because this had an open back, it worked for me.

This dress is VERY elegant...I received so many compliments throughout the night!!

Size worn: 14L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This gorgeous does run small, I would recommend ordering your 1st dress one size and your backup two sizes up, especially if you are bottom heavy like I am. However, with my Spanx, I was able to eat, dance, and be merry without any problems at all!! The long sizes are LONG...I am 5'7" and wore six inch heels and still found myself periodically lifting the skirt as I walked; it didn't bother me though...only added to the elegance of the dress. The only con to the dress is that it is HEAVY...much more than I expected!! It worked great for the crisp December night of my event, but I did get very warm at times!! I definitely would recommend this dress!!

Super comfortable and classic style

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I tried the 2R and the 4R based on previous reviews. I ended up wearing the 4R because I have a wide ribcage. The dress was super comfortable and I received a lot of compliments! The only thing I was medium on was the color. Since I wore this in the middle of winter, I did not have a tan. The nude colored lining underneath kind of washed me out. But I felt very elegant, and next time I will invest in a spray-tan a few days out!

Fit like a glove, material has a nice stretch to it that makes it forgiving. Modest enough for a business related event, but sexy enough to make you feel special.

Lots of compliments!

Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
My first dress turned out to be too small, but the wonderful people at RTR were kind enough to overnight this dress. They were low in stock so I kind of settled for this one since it was one of few available dresses in my size. I wasn't feeling it at first...until I got to the event. I got so many compliments, I changed my mind about it and suddenly felt beautiful! I have a full bust and thankfully ordered a size up from what I normally wear. The top fit so snug that I was able to go without a bra. The dress is a bit shorter than I'd liked (I usually wear sky-high heels). I wore modest 3 inch heel which made the hem fall the perfect length just skimming the floor. The built in corset is very flattering, just make sure your back is in shape as the back is exposed pretty well. Tip! I have some very strong double-stick skin tape that I adhered to the back of the dress. I had my husband hold my back fat downward with his hand and stick the dress tape on before letting go. That way my back was smoothe and flawless. Weird, but it works!

Absolutely STUNNING! And comfortable! Classy, elegant, perfect!

Size worn: 12L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I am curvy and full busted and this gown fit me like it was MADE for me! I tend to order dresses a size larger to accommodate my large bust, but this one just fit perfectly with no worries! The back is totally open which adds a little element of sexy to the gown - but it was also something that I was a little concerned about because I was afraid at my age (51) to go without a bra. I call my ample 38DD girls my 38 LONGS - so braless is not usually a good thing on me. But when I tried the gown on I could tell that I could wear it braless without worry. The way the gown is designed and lined holds you in (and up) quite nicely. I would also definitely recommend wearing the LONG version of this if you are 5ft 7in or taller. I broke my leg and am in a walking cast, so I tried to match the heel on my other foot as closely as I could - thus the height was fairly low, and even so the Long still fit perfectly in the length. Since I was traveling across country for the Gala I had the gowns shipped directly to my hotel to avoid having to rent extra days and pack and haul them. They were waiting for me at my hotel, no problem! What a convenience for me to not have to worry about packing formal gowns in a suitcase! I do have to add though that if I HAD been home and had the extra time and ability I probably would have bought and worn one of those stick on bras just because that's me, but it was really just fine without. The entire experience was perfect, and this gown was truly the shining star of the Gala. Would I rent this one again? Absolutely!

This dress is absolutely beautiful!!! And has a nice silky liner so it feels nice. That being said if you have hips and that's always your trouble spot with dresses I would suggest going up one size. It is very fitted through the stomach, hips and thighs. I loved the dress but in the end it was too snug to wear

I am 5'9 and 145 pounds. I have a large chest, so usually need to go up a size in dresses so that they will zip! This dress zipped right up, but was about 8 inches too short! Even the long size was too short. It looked ridiculous. It also was baggy in the stomach area. Did not wear.

I couldn't believe the dress fit me perfectly when I received it the night before my prom!! loved it! I'm only 5'6" but the Long was the right length with my heels. The only con would have been the lace, in parts was frayed & didn't lay quite right along my back. I could tell the dress must have been worn & cleaned a few times...

Dress fit really well. Length was perfect, I am 5'3, and wore about 3 1/2" heels. I bought a low back bra to wear with it, but the shoulder straps showed at the back, in the end I realized I didn't actually need a bra as it's very structured. The dress is very well made with the nude silk, and then a lining. The lace around the neckline was a bit raggedy but I pressed it and trimmed a few threads and it was fine, and no one would have noticed. It's very comfortable to wear, and glamorous. Also good that it doesn't really wrinkle so would be good if you had to travel.

I wore this dress for prom a few days ago and it fit perfect. Usually when I try to find long dresses they're always too long because i'm only 4'11. This dress fit me true to my size and my height. It's extremely comfortable and isn't too heavy which is good for a summer event. I would definitely recommend this dress!

It fit well in the hip area which is what I wanted to show off, it was a bit looser in the mid section than I prefer. However, I have a true hour glass figure and this is a problem I run into often with my wide hips and smaller waist.

This was sent to me since my original selection was too damaged, though this dress was similar to my original choice. This dress was simply gorgeous. It fit perfectly, even the perfect height for me to wear my low 2 inch heels. The nude color nearly matched my pale skin perfectly. I received so many compliments and it was so comfortable that I didn't want to take it off (or return it).

Fit was slightly large - the 2L was slightly too big overall and especially in the waist. I did not have the 0L but think it would have been a better fit. Overall, very pretty dress - I've rented both this dress and the navy lace version and received many compliments for both.

I wore this for a military ball. I had been looking for something classic and form fitting. Received tons of compliments on this dress. The lace was beautiful and dress fit like a glove. I had to wear 4 1/2 inch heels. I'm 5'2 and it was just a tad long. But I wasn't tripping on it all so length was ok.

Great Dress, Beware of Length

Size worn: 6L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
As a previous (and happy) RTR customer, I was excited to use the service again for a black tie company Christmas party. This was my second choice dress. This dress WAY too short with the smallest heels I own (I'm 5'8"), despite ordering both in LONG. RTR was great shipped me my next 3 choices overnight....in the wrong size. All three dresses were a 4L, instead of a 6L. I was able to squeeze into one of the 3 options, and it was my least favorite. I might rent again in the future, but will order in an extreme amount of time in advance. This is was not my ideal experience.

LOVED this dress. I am 5'6'' and I wore 4'' heels and the long size was perrrrfect. Definitely order the long if you're planning on wearing a nice size heel. It was comfortable to dance in for a long time. The detail in the back is amazing-plan on wearing your hair up! I wore this pre-baby, but if I wore it again (now postpartum) I would recommend spanx as this was tight around my abdomen.

The dress is beautiful and I was the center of attention!

Size worn: 10R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress fit me perfectly. The size 8 fit, but I went with the size 10R because it was a little more comfortable. I am a 34D+ so the 10R gave me that extra room up top. I wore 4 inch heels and the dress stopped perfectly at my toes. I am 5'2 if that helps those reading this. The waist area is fitted giving this simple dress an added flare. I like things that are classy, elegant, and simple (with a little bit of sexy). This dress was just that. I have zero complaints about this dress or the process of receiving this dress. It was my first experience with RTR and it will not be my last.

Just okay...

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
Honestly, I just was not blown away by this dress. I felt that it ran small, especially in the hips. Also, there are three strange corset-like stripes on the front torso that look almost like a mistake. Lastly, had the dress been a flattering fit on me, it still would have been far too short on my 5'10" frame. I would not rent this dress again.

I was stopped and complimented on my dress all night!!

Size worn: 2R
Rented for: Wedding
This was actually a back up dress that RTR sent me because they didn't have the right size in the dress I ordered but it ended up being better I think!!! The fit was great, not to tight but still has the form fitting aspect. It did bunch up a little bit around my hips as I walked but I have a fuller bottom half than I do upper so I tend to have that problem with most dresses. I could dance and sit comfortably. I received so many compliments about the dress and I felt amazing in it!!! It is a fantastic dress!!!
