So fabulous!

Originally wanted the kate spade dress similar to this one, so I just settled. When it got to me door though I was greatly surprised and feel in love! Fabulous dress and so different! Only issue was the top fitting weird, it was lose and big, but yet the dress was tight in the waist. Not a huge deal but that was the only issue!

I loved this dress! One of my favorites from RTR. I wore it out for NYE15 and I received many compliments. It's comfortable, classic and sexy. You can't go wrong with that combination. I have a smaller chest so I wore an adhesive bra without any issues. It was slightly loose under the arms but it was not a big deal. I'm 5'10" and the length was perfect.

Since I got engaged in this I may be a little bias, but I LOVED this dress! It was perfect for NYE! Great fit at the waist, but a little small in the bust so I ended up wearing the 10 instead of the 8. Highly recommend.

The dress was a great combination of being fun but not too revealing. The beaded belt and the criss-cross back made the dress a lot of fun! I typically wear a 4, but the the zipper on the 4 was broken, so wore the 6 and it worked out well! It's definitely fitted through the top and waist, but wasn't uncomfortable. Just an all around flattering dress!

No dress like it at the wedding!

Size worn: 10
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was perfect for the occasion. The full skirt was great for eating, dancing, and I love the side pockets! The detailing on the waist was pretty and the lining made the dress comfortable to wear. The slight downsides were the zipper was hard to zip up and the top was a bit loose, and I'm a 36DD.

I wore this dress to a black tie event and it was perfect. Based on some other reviews, I was a little worried it would be too big. I typically wear a 00 and wear a 32A, but this dress fit like a glove!! I wore a strapless bra with adhesive sides to give a little more support. With that, I didn't find the dress to run big in the chest at all. The front of this dress is simple but very elegant, and the back is stunning. It was the perfect length (right at the knee--I'm 5'2") and appropriate for a very formal event. I was so sad to send this dress back! If you're considering this dress, I highly recommend it! You won't be disappointed!

This dress was very comfortable and easy to move in. I had to wear a NuBra, but I didn't even know I was wearing it. I love the pockets as you can tell from the picture! I would recommend this to anyone. True to size, if anything it was a tiny bit roomy on top, but nothing noticeable.

This navy dress is beautiful! I wore this to a black tie event and it was formal enough to fit in with all of the long dresses. The beading is silver, pearl and crystal so blingy jewelry really brought my look to life. The fit was great and the pockets were a plus.

Pro- The dress was beautiful to wear, comfortable to dance in and supportive where I didn't need to wear a bra. Cons- it was hard to sip by myself you will need some assistance. The hem on the skirt didn't seem to lay flat it was ironed incorrectly so it folded up.

Beautiful dress

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is stunning on the hanger. However, the top portion was very tricky for me. I am larger on top, but due to the open back the bra situation got complicated. I ended up wearing pasties, which did the trick. The dress fit me in the waist but was too large in the chest and lacked support so I was constantly adjusting it. I think overall it was nice for the occasion but I wouldn't rent again. I'm sure for smaller chested women it is fabulous! Still, another fabulous look by ML

I wore this dress to my school's Barrister's ball. It was beautiful and fit perfectly, although I had a really hard time getting the zipper up (even when it was on the hanger). Also, the bottom kept flipping in a weird way which made it look like the hem was coming unsewn, which it wasn't. Overall, the dress worked out well and I got lots of compliments. The back is the best part. Tip: this dress would be beautiful with gunmetal shoes and clutch, if you can find them!

Fit like a dream!

I did not want to take this dress off! I am 5'7 and the length was just above my knees. I was able to not wear a bra and feel secure. I have a pretty small waist so it fit perfectly but I can see how some reviewers said it was tight. My only complaint about this dress was the hem on the bottom. It needs to be repaired! Other than that, it was probably my favorite dress that I have ever rented!

Gorgeous Monique Lhuillier!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Love this dress! I previously wore another dress, a ball gown, by Monique designed just like this dress so I already knew I would love this shortened version and I absolutely did love it. The navy color was so pretty and the dress was stunning but also very comfortable, which is important. I also love nothing more than a dress with pockets!! GREAT feature. I did encounter a little problem with the zipper on this one, but not with getting it on. It zipped up with no problem BUT about 2 hours into my event, it completely busted and opened up to the point where my entire left side was exposed and I had to leave the event prematurely. FORTUNATELY, it happened closer the end of the event and not in the beginning. The great thing though is that RTR Customer Service is OUTSTANDING and they took care of me in the aftermath. :) I have rented several times in the past and will continue to rent from them because this is certainly not a typical occurrence. That was actually the first time I ever had an issue like that. Anyway, the dress was beautiful! I would rent the other short and long versions in a heartbeat!

The pictures do NOT do it justice. It was a very beautiful dress. I did not want to return it!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size

I wore this dress for a BYX Formal. The color was deep navy and the beaded belt did not look cheap at all. I wish I had gotten more (and better) pictures of the back because it was gorgeously done. I got quite a few compliments :P Pros: Pockets! The dress was a relatively thick material, but it was very light and airy. I danced the entire night but sweat was not a problem. The skirt had volume without being poofy. The back was a show stopper and the dress was overall, very elegant. Perfect if you want to be classy yet sexy! Cons: I am by no means small chested, I think I'm about a 36D, but the dress fit perfectly everywhere except for the chest! It was unnaturally large. If it had been tighter, a bra would not have been necessary. Unfortunately I did not have a bra I could wear with the dress, so I went without, but was able to make it through the night without any issues. The bottom of the dress folds up weirdly at times, so I would pin it or finds a way to steam it (?), The straps of the dress tended not to lay flat, maybe because I have broad shoulders, so I had to adjust them often to make sure the front of the dress and the back straps laid flat. Once the straps were where they were supposed to be, the loose chest area was less of a problem. I would also suggest that you keep very straight posture! I had to do a sorority squat for a picture and it was not flattering. The front of the dress bunched up and made me look wider than I actually am. *I realize that seems like a lot of cons, but I just wanted to be thorough. I would absolutely recommend renting this dress! It was beautiful and you'll have trouble parting with it when your rental is over ;)

Pros: Great Color, material was light and breathable which is a must for someone like me who likes to dance. The stone accents on the waste were a little tight and did not move but that was perfect for not having to wear a bra. The bottom of the dress was not steamed correctly and some of the "bubble" hem hung lower in some places. But, this was an easy fix with some fashion tape. I got a lot of complements on this dress and it was great for a 5:30 wedding.

I got to try this on in the Chicago store so I knew it would fit when I received it. It runs tight in the waist and the zipper is really tough to pull up, but both of these things didn't deter me from wearing the dress! (I packed an extra dress just in case the zipper broke when I was putting it on.) I probably didn't need to wear a bra, but I went ahead and wore the sticky bra cups to help fill it out a little more. I was so sad to send it back! Would definitely recommend!

The fit of the 0 was perfect if you're small busted and larger in the hips than the natural waist. this dress is the perfect fabric and length for a wedding with a very demure pretty front and an amazing back. I wouldn't re comment wearing a bra at all or if you have a large bust. So many compliments all night

I loved this dress. The color was very pretty and the sparkle belt was the right amount of extra. I typically wear a 4 in dresses but am more like a 2 on top. Because of this, I had some room in the bust area and right under my arms. I couldn't size down for the waist though so I just made it work! Wore a backless bra which helped take up some of the extra room. Lots of compliments on the back!

Cute, classy, and comfy!

Size worn: 12
Rented for: Wedding
The overall fit of the dress was great. I loved the color, the beading, and the open back. There were a few minor issues I had with the dress. First, the beads kept popping off. When I first received the dress I looked at it and noticed that some of the beads were loose and by the time I made it to the wedding, I heard 3 of them fall to the floor. Next, I had to adjust the crisscross back several times because the straps in the back would creep up a little. When that would happen, it would create a gap in the neck area and look strange. Lastly, I didn't like that the dress had a high waist. This coupled with the flare in the dress, it made me feel like I looked fat. I have an hourglass figure and flare dresses don't look the best on me. I didn't feel 100% gorgeous in the dress, though I received many compliments. I probably wouldn't rent it again just because of that. However the dress itself is gorgeous, it just may not be the best fit for my body type.
