Comfortable, fun and elegant all in one dress!

Overall the dress fit true to size. Since I have a small bust was able to go without a bra and felt comfortable with the support offered by the dress.

Feeling beautiful for the symphony on NYE and having the confidence you only get with a new dress!

#NYE #symphony - you need a second person to fully zip you up. The sequins easily fall off. Perfect length to walk in with shorter heels and even flats.

Lovely but didn't wear :(

This was a backup dress sent because another dress was damaged. It was beautiful but the 4 was pretty short. If I had pretty flats to wear this would have worked, but I didn't have the right shoes to make this work so I didn't end up wearing this.

Walking the red carpet with ALL eyes on me! I felt glamorous!

Gorgeous dress! I felt so beautiful for the NYE gala I attended. I received numerous compliments from men and women. No haters this way! The dress top was different that what I expected. I guess I had glitz in mind like jewels when I ordered but that was my fault in not paying attention. The fit was great! Good thing too because my second size did not get sent to me. I was really happy the 4L fit so well. I will say during the night that it started to feel really tight after I ate- lol... If this happens to you just stop eating! If you don't, you will walk around feeling like you squeezed into a dress. My only disappointment was that I spent soooooooo much time steaming this gown and it was STILL winkled! That's ok, I just stayed on the dance floor. Back to a positive note- This dress moves great when dancing and the pockets were super cool! I def recommend this dress to all. Oh and did I mention it photographs beautifully?!?!? Check the pictures! Love ya!!!

This dress is unbelievably stunning and incredibly flattering!

Ok, so I just have to say that I didn't choose this dress from the website. I drove to Vegas so that I could actually try some of the dresses on, and my stylist, Destiny, pulled it for me. Once I put it on, I couldn't help but beam. It's gorgeous on. The color, the fit, everything! It has pockets, so it's feminine without being uncomfortable. I ordered it for a black tie event at work, but unfortunately I discovered at the last minute that a coworker ordered the same dress. I can't stress enough that RTR's customer service is incomparable!! Even though the dress had already shipped, the RTR rep sent me a different dress of my choice (she waved the extra price) and all I had to do was pay for shipping!! When the box arrived, they had even included jewelry to match the dress!!

We have the same measurements (hey girl, hey), and I was curious if you remembered the dress size you tried on? This dress looks fabulous!
SSPFebruary 11, 2015
Oh hey, girl! ;) I believe I ended up trying on the 6R. I REALLY loved it! It's really great if you have an hourglass shape because it's really fitting right under the bust area, and fans out nicely below. It was very slimming on me in a time when I'm self conscious about gaining a little bit of weight. Wish I could've worn it lol! Enjoy!

This dress is GORGEOUS. I'm in love with this dress, it made me so sad to send it back!

I rented this dress for my senior prom, and it was such a dream. The fit was perfect and the pockets were awesome for carrying my phone all night. It photographed extremely well and overall it was a very classy look. I'm only 5'2", but with 4" heels it hung slightly above the floor. And I received endless compliments on the dress the entire night. You should definitely rent this dress, I have no regrets!

The length was amazing, very flattering. Fitted really well

The layer under was a little ripped but it wasn't noticeable. However it got caught on my heels a couple times.

Pretty but not the WOW I wanted.

This was not my first choice. The dress I originally rented was way to small and I had to call to get a new one sent to me... This was the back up. I ordered the long because my dress before didn't fit in length. This dress was fine in the long and I probably could have worn the regular. I did like this dress I just don't think I would rent it again. It didn't quite WOW me. It was tight under my breast and runs small in the bust. I'm a triple d and I could not wear a bra because there was no room. The pockets also stick out and makes your hips look wider than they are. It was better than the first dress I got but I don't think I would rent this dress again. To tight in my bust and uncomfortable. I would like to say RTR is super helpful when needing a back up! The stylist was super helpful on the phone and helped me get something I could wear for my event. This is my third time renting and I'll be back, even with this last rental being such a problem! Thanks for the help RTR!

Stunning dress!

Stunning dress. As beautiful in person as it is on the website. I'm almost 5'7" and the regular length was great with about 3" heels. The 2 hugged my torso just the right amount and it was very comfortable. I did have trouble with my bra sticking out of the opening in the back, so I went without one. I never do that, but the fit and beading hid it well! I would rent this dress again in a heartbeat.

I rented this gown for a Holiday Gala. It was perfect for this black tie event.

I thought I would wear the size 10 but I was glad to have the 12 as a backup. I wore the 12 R. It was nice fitting to not accentuate my large backside and was nice fitting on the top chest area. A little scratchy under the arms because of the black sequins. I'm 5' 3" and the length was perfect. will use rent the runway again for sure!

Best dress I've rented! Worn to NYE Wedding.

This dress is absolutely stunning and I felt fantastic wearing it. It was very comfortable and the pockets were great. I was able to dance all night and never had to adjust the dress. I was worried about the dress being too long, but the 0R worked out perfect. I also rented the 2P and I'd say this was no more than 1in shorter than the regular length dress.

This was beautiful. I ended to wearing the other rental only due to the better suiting of the event - will likely rent this again. It's perfect length, interesting back and a great color. The pockets are fab.

Beautiful fabric, but not worn in lieu of backup gown.

This is a beautiful gown, just preferred my second choice better. The fit is true to size, but not great for pear shaped ladies like myself. It minimized my already small bust. The fabric was a beautiful saturated royal blue. Overall, a conservative choice for a formal affair.

Nice dress but decided to wear the other dress I ordered.

Runs a bit small at the top and the regular length was just right for my height. One inch taller and It would have been too short. The 10 was the best fit since I need a little more room at the top. The cutout could pose a bra problem, so fashion tape or safety pins would be needed if wearing one. It was a nice dress but lacked the wow factor I was searching for.

Compliments all night long! I loved the pockets, too, because it made it easy to store my camera!

Loved the fit, though I'm not a large-chested girl so I sized down for a better fit up top (which is admittedly the most important part based on the way this dress is cut.) The size long (I'm 5' 9") fit great with three-inch heels, though it would be far too long for shorter girls. The pockets were great too! My only complaint is that you NEED someone to help you put it on and take it off because of the way the back zips. Other than that it was a great choice! Very unique and fun, and elegant as well.

I felt beautiful

It is a true A line cut. Worked perfectly with my hips and booty. The bottom of the dress came wrinkled. I steamed the wrinkles out as best I can, but the very bottom has a backing to keep the material stiff and it was hard to get that to be flat. There isn't much stretch, so measure accordingly. I am 5'6" and wore the long with 3" heels in the 6L. I was surprised, I thought I would wear the 8R. I loved this dress so much I am thinking of buying it!

I loved the fit of this dress and its pockets! Not big enough to hold anything but cute for pictures

I was self conscious after gaining some weight before this big formal event, but I felt so elegant and glamorous in this dress that I forgot all about my self consciousness. The dress fabric wrinkles easily when sitting but I loved the fit. I'm 5'5" and the long definitely required a 2-3 inch heel.

I rented this for a gala and it was beautiful! I received so many compliments! Great dress!

I read the reviews that said to rent a size down, so I got the 10R and 8R. The length ended up being ok, but I definitely needed a 12R. I was unable to get that overnight rd as it was not available, so I had to choose another dress which never made it to me in time despite the Saturday delivery. Although the that was unfortunate, I was happy to have chosen and worn this dress! Definitely a stand out at the event!

Love this dress. Flattering and slimming. Heavy fabric so be sure to "air out" if dancing - legs don't breathe. So many compliments. Felt very elegant.

Comfortable, elegant and flattering

Wore this to a work gala and had countless compliments. The only issue is the bra. A strapless is too low on the back and shows. A regular bra shows on the front side cup area. I got creative by tying the bra straps in the front. That did the trick. I'm 5'4" and with 3" heels the dress was just slightly above the floor. Perfect. The smaller size 8 would have been okay braless with the snugger fit but not as comfortable. You'll also need someone to help you zip up.

Classic formal elegance with a little bit of "pop"

Elegant and beautiful. Traditional glamour with a little "pop" with the sexy open back Can't wear a regular bra with this one. Fine for me as 34B. Cool that is has deep side pockets (for phone, lipstick...) but beware of pocket lining hanging out after removing something. True to size - 8r was well above the floor even in flats. 8l barely sat on floor with flats on. If Borderline on height requirements for the tall (vs reg), should definitely opt for tall

Formal dress with pockets!

My daughter and I rented our dresses from RTR for a formal work event with an Academy Awards theme. My daughter was the awards girl who gave out the trophy awards so we needed her to be all glitter and glam. So thankful for Extra length options as she is 6" and I am 5'10". I wore a 2 inch heel. Loved the pockets , unusual sequins on the bodice and cut out on the back that were fancy but not too revealing for a work event. Many compliments received on both dresses!

Fantastic dress! Highly recommed!

Great dress! In my case, the hanging straps in each arm and in the back of the dress by the zipper kept showing (and they are red!). I used strips of fashion tape and problem solved. Given my height and weight, any dress in size 10P by ML Monique Lhuillier has worked out for me. I wore this dress to a formal affair with 4 1/2" heels and it was perfect. Loved the pockets! PS. I rented this along with the 'Glitzy Glamour Cuff' by AV Max, it's a cuff with black beads that match the dress perfectly, I received many compliments!
