This was a backup style chosen by a RTR stylist when the dress I requested was damaged. Great job!

This dress is so much more beautiful in person, and the fit is incredibly slimming. I received tons of compliments, and really felt great wearing it. The material has no stretch, or give, but it was still very comfortable. I usually wear a 4, but I did wear this in the 2, and it just barely fit.

The lace overlay was just the right touch. Great length and fit great. Used fashion tape to hold the strapless in place and it was perfect! Worn with a bracelet that RTR sent me, no name though. No necklace needed, just some fun earrings and heels!

Gorgeous Gown!!!

I absolutely loved this dress. It was perfect for the rehearsal dinner I attended. Very fancy and elegant (something Blair Waldorf would wear). I would definitely recommend it. However, it is very fitted at the waist but it gives you an hourglass fit. I am usually a size 4 and that's what I ordered, I barely got in the dress (even with spanx) I would recommend sizing up. The gold lace isn't super bright, more of an olive golden color. Overall, I loved the dress.

Beautiful dress, not so beautiful fit!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
The dress was really beautiful but i thought the fit was terrible. I am pretty consistent with size four dresses, and the 4 in this was extremely tight around my hips and ribs, but loose in the waist. I wore the 6, which was still tight across my hips (and I don't think I have large hips, but who knows) but better around my ribcage. The fabric around the waist was SO loose, though. From a profile view, I looked pregnant because it just poofed out in the wrong area. The fabric does not stretch at all, so if the dress fits as if it was made for you... you will look stunning! But be prepared to have it be tight/loose in the hips/waist/chest, depending upon your body type. Overall though, I got so many compliments on the dress and it was perfect against the snowy/Christmas-y backdrop.

Received a ton of compliments on this gorgeous, glam dress!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I rented this for a friend's fabulous 30th birthday party in mid-December. I rented the 6 and 8 as a backup. The 8 fit ok, but wasn't as flattering as the 6. It also had a tear in the lace overlay on the side, which was annoying. This is the kind of dress you'd want to fit really snugly. The boning helps keep the structure, but at the same time, it was a bit constricting. The 6 looked BOMB on me, but to be honest, I could barely breathe. I was certainly not inclined to eat anything (not the best sit down dinner dress). I have wide shoulders and ribcage, but this dress helped minimize the appearance. Waist down, this dress was a breeze to wear (yay for narrow hips). Didn't have to wear a bra with it. Wore Wolford black thigh high tights to avoid having to deal with extra layers. Paired it with crazy high gold-beaded peeptoe platform stilettos and the rentable INGE CHRISTOPHER Corsica Scale Clutch. I received a ton of compliments from the guys and girls all night! Despite the discomfort, I loved this dress. It's wonderful for a "stand up"-heavy cocktail event.

You need to have a bigger chest to ensure that this dress stays "up" during your event. Be very cognizant of the fact that the lace and button on the back will pop open if you're broad-shouldered and seated. It was also a bit tight to sit down in. It looked really great standing though... Also keep in mind that it's a LONG dress - it hit me right at the knees.

Gorgeous Color, Beautiful Lace

The dress has a very flattering silhouette. The lace and sheer top are feminine but not too revealing. I selected this dress for Christmas eve mass. I'm 5'3" and the length was right at my knee which was ideal for this occasion. The lace is a gorgeous olive gold - perfect for the holiday! My husband said that when I left the pew for a few minutes, the woman seated next to him immediately got the attention of her friends in the surrounding rows and told them to look at how beautiful my dress was!

Perfect

I loved this dress! It fit comfortably (I passed up the smaller size in favor of breathing and eating at the wedding!). It was elegant, sophisticated, and different from anything else I saw among the guests. I wore diamond earrings and a gold bracelet with it, which was all the accessorizing it needed, in my opinion. The only negative - and a very minor one - was that it was extremely difficult to find the hook and eye closure. My husband did it for me 4 times before he actually got it hooked.

Beautiful dress for a fancy dinner and night out dancing, but a less than great fit

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
I wore this for a birthday dinner with my father. It was very pretty - the lace overlay gives an elegant, striking effect. The fit was a little strange - it was snug in the chest but it loose through the stomach, probably made for someone with a longer torso. The boning made it stiff rather than curve-hugging. It was a bit long for me and generally would be better for someone taller. I was happy enough with it, but I'll be looking for something stretchy next time.

Perry Awards worthy dress (They are the Tony's of community Theatre)

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I felt glamorous and could not bend over. Like all the other woman said, it is tight in the hips and the butt. I tried on my usual size of 4 and it did not even get halfway over my booty. Defiantly get a size up. The 6 worked but it was a snug fit and I was pulling it down a lot of the night. Also the back below the sheer is very low, I wore a black strapless so you could not really tell, but if you wore a nude bra; you would be able to see it.

I rent it for my BD party, this dress fits true size but i'm a petite, so on the top it looked a little big. Dress it self looks gorgeous, i got a lot of compliments , unfortunately for me, it had a little hole on the back of the dress close to zipper side and since i was out of time for my party I had to go with that defect , it was not that visible but still i felt a little not comfy i thought every one noticed. Overall it looks great.

The boning in the dress makes it very fitted and flattering. It seems to be made for long torsos. Also, not much space in the bust - fine for me, but might smoosh some more voluptuous ladies. The lace was beautiful and in perfect condition.

This dress is undoubtedly gorgeous! It just didn't fit my body type. I have very narrow shoulders and wide hips. On top it looked like a sack and on the bottom it was perfect, but I know an 8 still would've been too big on top and then tight on bottom. Might want top skip if you are Hourglass or Pear!

I received this dress when my original pick had arrived damaged. The stylist Juliette was super helpful and we picked this dress and it was over Overnighted. I've worn Monique before and loved it and thought I knew the fit but this fit was all wrong for me. It was snug across the hips and waist but baggy and large in the chest area. So while it is a beautiful dress it just isn't met for someone with my shape.

Overall fit: True to Size

This dress is exactly as described by the other ladies. There is no give or stretch, so if you plan on eating or sitting down and have actual hips, and abs that are not perfectly ripped, you will want to go up a size. It's a bit big in the bust for me, as I only needed the size up for my hips. It was still beautiful, and I got compliments all night.

This dress was so beautiful! I got so many compliments! It is a very tight fitting dress with no stretch, so if you have curvy hips and a booty be mindful of that. However, the structure of the dress plus the lace overlay are SUPER flattering, and I would definitely rent this dress again!

The dress was beautiful. Delicate lace, cute cap sleeve. However, it seemed like there was slightly too much fabric in the top of the back. It's hard to explain, but it did not lay entirely flat. Not a huge deal, but frustrating nonetheless.

Like others said, it's not for curvy or hippy women. I got in my usual 0 with spanks, but it was very fitted - could not bend down at all. It is also a littttle bit long for us shorties. It's beautiful and different dress. It was fun to try out this style, but would not rent again for reasons mentioned above.

I ordered this dress last minute for an event. It is stunning, with beautiful detailing and boning. However, as it was a last minute order I couldn't get a larger backup size and the 10 was too small around the bust to zip up.

Beautiful neckline - a little big

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
The neckline of the dress was beautiful with the lace overlay and the gold shimmer in the black lace. It really made the dress. However, I ordered the 2 and the 4 and the 2 was even a bit too big and resulted in some bagginess throughout the bodice that made it look a little bit frumpy over all. I would have definitely been happier with the dress in a smaller size.

A little longer than I find flattering on me. It hit me around my knees. Loved the fabric but it did tend to twist around so I had to straighten myself often. Very pretty details though and I got a lot of compliments.

RTR gave me a great option for NYE! Can't wait to rent again!

Size worn: 6
Rented for: Other
I loved getting this in the Mail and was so excited to try RTR for the first time. The dress I had originally wanted was not available for New Years so this was my 2nd choice. The dress is very pretty and the size 6 fit well, I didn't even try the 8. I am a size 34dd and the bust was a bit restrictive, but fit. This dress has no give, but was true to size. I liked it, however felt it was pretty matronly, the top is a classic, shape, with sweetheart liner beneath the lace and the cap sleeves are lovely. I would have liked it more had it been more fitted on the bottom. I have long legs and looking at he photos of myself in the dress, I don't think it looks flattering at all. I know what works for my body and thought this would be perfect, but it was just too boxy on the bottom for me.

I got the 12 and 14 and the 12 was a little tight (especially when sitting down) but it was fine standing up and was what I ended up wearing. The 14 gave me more room but looked too big and was not as flattering as the 12. I am 5'9" and it went just above my knees which was great for an office holiday party. I would definitely recommend to others!

This is a beautiful dress and it arrived in mint condition. I found the sizing to be peculiar. Typically dresses are too large up top and tight in my hips. This dress fit me great up top but was way too loose from the waist down. I am an A cup so to anyone who is slightly busty I would be leery of renting this one. Again, beautiful dress just slightly off in fit.

I rented this dress my job's annual Christmas party which was held at a local museum. This dress was perfect for the semi-formal/cocktail vibe of the party. It fit great so I was able to move around and even dance a bit. My only con is that you have to be careful with the overlay so that it does not get caught in your jewelry. Overall it was great!
