Lovely dress, will rent again!
I LOVED this dress, but unfortunately the size I knew I needed (size 42) was out of stock for the weekend. I ended up having the size 40 & 44 sent to me. The 40 was extremely tight in the waist (black belt) and the 44 was way too big in the arms/back area. Very disappointed that I couldn't wear this dress for my event, but it was VERY comfy & I will rent it again for another event when they have my size!! Zipper was hard to pull up but my husband used a pliers!!

Great dress!
RTR did not have the 38 available for me, so they just sent the 40, but that probably worked out for the best. It seemed a bit small, it worked well but I think the 38 would've been too small. I really loved the look of the dress on me though.

This dress is gorg
LOVED this dress for a fall wedding. The sleeves don't have any stretch so makes sense to size up if you have broad shoulders like me. Otherwise the dress was very comfortable and photographed beautifully. The open back gives it a bit of interest too. Definitely recommend!

Classic
This is a timeless dress that looks very conservative from the front, but the open back gives it a little edge. It runs small in the bust/waist, and I was unable to wear the 38; I recommend sizing up.

Beautiful Dress for New England Fall Wedding
Like others I was worried 1. that it would look to old/conservative and 2. The sleeves would be tight, as I don't have the smallest arms. It turned out that neither ended up being an issue at all. I ordered the 44 and the 46, both fit, but I went with the bigger one so I could eat and dance and still be comfortable all night. It was a great color for a late fall wedding, and the sleeves kept me warm at the outdoor ceremony. The back keeps the dress from being old or frumpy. I felt it was a good balance between sexy and modest, as the longer length made up for the extra skin showing in the back. I wore a sticky bra with it just for some support, but I bet you could go without. The one thing I didn't consider when ordering was the tan lines left over on my back from my bathing suit in the summer. The cutout essentially framed that white stripe, but some self tanner saved the day. The only reason that I gave it 4 stars was the zipper in both dresses was almost impossible to get on and off... I seriously spent almost 30 mins attempting to zip the dress up. I ended up needing help to remove the dress as well. I think they have just been well worn, and the lace makes it difficult for the zipper to slide easily. Just something to think about.

Sexy back!
I would have given this dress 5 stars if it weren't for how frustrating the zipper was! It was nearly impossible to zip because of the black strip of fabric that goes around the dress at the hips. The sleeves were also a bit short for me, but I'm lanky. Otherwise, I absolutely adored the dress and received a ton of compliments. I wore sans bra, but if you want to wear one, you'll need to plan ahead and buy cups!

So much love for lace! Fit was perfect.
I wore this for a family wedding, and the length was perfect, it felt very comfortable and appropriate, yet the back gave the dress a little pop of fun! The 42 wasn't available for the weekend, so I ordered down and up and hoped for the best. I have an athletic build, and I couldn't zip the 40 by the seam at the waistline, but the 44 ended up working out perfectly as I had room to eat, sit, move and dance all night (it wasn't loose by any means). The color was more of a plum purple than a brown which the photos appear to be. I highly recommend this dress, the lace was absolutely gorgeous, perfect length, pretty color, and fun backless cut out. The shoes that I bought cost more than the rental! Pair it was a string of pearls.

Elegant dress with a great warm winter color
This dress was amazing, it runs true to size and I loved the fit and color. The open back makes this dress even more unique (I wore it with a backless bra and worked out well) and the lace really makes it standout. I liked the fact that it had sleeves and that it wasn't too short. It was made very nice and I def didn't want to send it back. Would def recommend.

I received compliments all night!
I'm typically a 0, so I ordered the 0 and 2 (38 and 40) - I went with the 38. I was nervous when it came to renting because nothing ever fits me right, but the dress fit perfect. With that said, it is very hard to zip up once you get to the top. I considered wearing the 40 because of that, but when I put it on, I had a hard time zipping that one as well (and it was baggy on me). Once I got the dress on, it was smooth sailing! I couldn't even tell you the amount of people who complimented me on the dress. I even had husbands coming up to me saying how beautiful it was. I became known by the entire wedding as the girl who rented their dress. I had a GREAT first experience with RTR, and recommended it to all who approached me.

Beautiful color!
This dress was very comfortable and the color is perfect for fall. I loved the sleeves and also the open back detail. It kind of smooshed my chest and that is probably the only negative thing I will say about the dress, but besides that I received a lot of compliments and it was very comfortable for dancing all night!

Great dress, TERRIBLE zipper!
Seriously, my husband had to use his pliers to get this zipper up. It's THAT tricky. It just does not want to go past the belt part of the waist. Otherwise thought his dress is great! It was comfortable (but the neck hole is a little small so if you're wearing your hair up like I did, put the dress on before you do your hair!) and elegant. I got a ton of compliments. This particular dress had a few snags and pulls on the lace, but I think that's to be expected--it's a delicate material. I'm not sure I'd rent it again due to the very frustrating zipper, but it did look really good. And I love RtR!

Beautiful dress!
I was so bummed, this dress didn't fit! It was so beautiful! The size 4 did not fit at all. My other choice, size 2 was damaged by previous renter. Thankfully RTR had my back and sent me a great replacement. I look forward to renting this dress for another occasion.

Dress is beautiful and fit like a glove!
This dress was amazing and fit like a glove. I'm 5'7 and it fit right above my knee. I usually wear a size 4 in pants and a 2 in dresses. I not have to wear a bra. The color of the dress is not as burnt maroon as in the pictures online, but more of a purple maroon. It is a beautiful dress and open back gives it an extra wow statement. Everyone kept asking me where I purchased it, I let them in on rent the runway !!

Gorgeous color & dress!
There is no doubt this dress isn't stunning-I got loads of compliments and people asking if I took it from Kate Middleton's closet. But, as other reviewers have said, it does fit small. I would have probably worn the 42 if it was available for the rental period. The bottom portion of the dress was great and I was actually able to dance! The tight part is the waist band that hit right on my ribs. It has no give in the fabric. The top fits well, I wore a backless bra that had no problem staying in place. You could probably not wear a bra but I was worried a flash from a camera would expose a little too much. The shoulder area was slightly tight as well-my "YMCA" at the wedding was a little sad because it was hard to raise my arms! All in all, I would love to wear the dress again , and hope I could get both sizes!

Did not wear
I typically run between a 0-2 depending on the dressmaker. I had a feeling that the 0 in this dress would be too small as it is an italian designer, but gave it a shot anyway. As suspected, it did not fit and I was unable to wear it. I do definitely want to rent it again in a better size (likely I will try a 2-4) because it looked just as gorgeous in person as it did in the photo!

This dress is stunning!!
This was my first RTR experience. Everything went so smooth, I will absolutely be renting again. This dress felt amazing to wear. Compliments all night. I am 5'1 so the dress hit my knees but looked great with black booties. Great for a fall wedding. Love the open back. It is definitely form fitting, so good to size up.

Didn't end up wearing, my smaller size was not available.
This dress was beautiful, but the day before my event the smaller size became unavailable. The larger size that I received was far too long for me.

Perfect fit, lots of compliments!
This is probably one of my favorite dresses that I've rented from RTR. I wore a 42/size 4, which is the size I normally wear, and it fit me like a glove! It showed off the perfect amount of skin for my friend's birthday. The color and style was perfect was for fall, too. I definitely wanted to keep this dress for myself! If you're in between sizes, I would recommend sizing up for your backup as the dress doesn't stretch a lot.

Classy & sexy
This dress is classy but still sexy. The open back is very attractive. I wore a backless strapless bra with it and had no problems. I received several compliments & while I stopped in a swanky little boutique, the owner complimented it & said she could tell the lace was expensive. So it definitely shows as good quality. The only difficulty I had was with the zipper, it stuck & I almost couldn't wear it, but thankfully I managed to get it zipped up just in time. I felt that the fit was a little big but I was probably in between sizes because the smaller would have been too fitted for the event I was attending. Overall it's a very nice, eye-catching dress.

Perfect for a fall wedding!
I had originally ordered the 44 but it became unavailable EXTREMELY last minute, like, the day before I needed it. So I opted for the 46. It ended up fitting my hips and was a little large up top. Luckily, it made it more comfortable to dance and eat in because I danced my pants off. I got a ton of compliments on it and it was extremely flattering. I am rather hippy but felt really confident and sleek in it.

The fit was very flattered and appropriate for the formal affair I rented it for.
The dress as a whole fit great, but the black band around the middle was pretty tight. It was slightly uncomfortable but that's really my only complaint. The color is beautiful in person and I would rent it again.

Surprisingly sexy lace!
I had avoided this dress for a long time, scared it was too dark or demure for my style. Boy, was I wrong! When I visited the Georgetown store for the first time, I got to see my first choice dress--which didn't work out at all. This dress was available, and with much doubt and skepticism, I tried it. Woo, the moment I first walked out, I got complements everywhere. This dress does fit snug, like a glove, but it can make you work what you got. The contrast between the long sleeves and the open back really makes this dress work. I knew I could wear it to a conservative garden wedding, but still have a lot of fun with my closest friends who were getting married. The one thing to watch out for, is that you've really got to plan out your bra situation! I just ended up going sans bra because I didn't have much of a choice out of town. Still works, but I probably could've found a better solution if I had the time.

Really lovely… conservative + a little flair
First RTR experience — loved this dress and the whole process. The dress is pretty structured — no stretch at all — so I wore the bigger of the two I ordered. Once I carefully got it on, it was fairly comfortable. Didn't need a bra. Probably not perfect for dancing the night away (semi-stiff lace sleeves), but was really nice for a work party/event. I also didn't sit down much in it, so it may not be SUPER comfortable for that either, but I'm not sure. The lace and material seemed to be great quality and the color is a really pretty burgundy (hard to see much detail in my mediocre pic) — good alternative to all the black I usually wear. The zipper was tricky at first as many have mentioned, but on the day of the event, it zipped just fine. The back is beautiful. Very elegant/classy choice — definitely recommend!

The dress was BEAUTIFUL!! Definitely would rent again!
Like many of the reviews the dress ran small, but really only because of the zipper which is tough to get up. But once it was on, the size fit perfect (I wore a 2, and am usually between a 2 and 4). I got so many compliments and it was so easy to get the dress delivered and send right back.

This dress was so beautiful!!! Glad I rented this one!
LOVED the dress! I wore it to my fire dept. installation dinner last night, and I was receiving compliments all night. It definitely made me feel beautiful wearing this dress. It is classy and sexy at the same time. My usual size ended up being too small and tight on me, so I recommend going up a size for comfort. My zipper was stuck half-way up, but it didn't move, or look like it was stuck(thankfully). If I had the $1300 I would buy this dress in a heart beat. I will definitely be renting again, and wearing this dress again :)

Absolutely loved the back detail of this dress and the maroon color! I wore it for a winter wedding and it was perfect, great length as well. I received many compliments throughout the night. I consider it a win-win, can't beat the price and you look fabulous!

Beautiful dress for my bridal shower
I bought the dress with only having a size 8. I go back and forth between 8 and 10 so I was a little nervous if the 8 would fit. It fit PERFECTLY. I'm a size 34DDD so I was nervous about the bust part but the bust was actually almost loose on me. I ended up being able to wear a strapless bra and just having the back of my bra be lower than where the open back ended. The dark color is a beautiful wine color and makes you look thin! I loved the long sleeve lace and the length went to about my knees which I thought was modest enough for my bridal shower. My favorite of course was the back that added a little fun to the dress. If your big chested like myself I recommend trying to do the strapless bra technique like I did because we all know those nubras do not work for us
