So many comments on my dress & necklace!
Size worn: 42
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I suggest you wear a strapless bra, with a very low back strap. Or you need a backless bra. I have muscular shoulders, so that was only place where it felt tighter, but that is a typical issue for me. Overall I was so pleased with my rental, and planning to use this 5 more times this year, possibly more! I signed up for PRO, best way to go!

I was going to the opera to celebrate my 60th birthday and wanted something special.
Size worn: 42
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I did not realize I could have ordered two sizes, but using the details from other women it fit perfectly. You do need to buy the bra they recommend as the dress is a little too thin to go bra less. The dress is very fitted yet extremely comfortable. I might have worn the next size had I thought to order two. During one of the intermissions a woman did come over and asked me where I got my dress!!!! I happily shared the information. Lincoln Center, my family, and my dress made my night magical.

The back is gorgeous and I received a lot of compliments!
Size worn: 42
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Like other reviews, the zipper was hard to zip over the black belt piece, but otherwise it fit really well. It is heavy so I would definitely rent it to wear during a colder season. It is a little long; it hit me right at the knees so it was a little hard to go up steps since it is slightly tighter fitting.

Perfect for my cocktail event!

This dress looked beautiful! The sleeves have no stretch in them so that would be the only down side. Fit like a glove and I was complimented all night

The only problem was that the zipper was stuck and I was forced to pin it for the whole night.

The fit was great, I was worried the waist would be baggy but it was fitted without being too tight. Didn't wear a bra and had no issues seeing through the dress. Got so many compliments, was perfect for a winter wedding.

Perfect dress for a wedding reception
Size worn: 42
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Rented this dress for a wedding reception for my husband's boss's son. Wanted to be conservative so the long sleeves were perfect. It was also 25 degrees outside so I paired it with black tights and heels. The dress runs true to size, but I recommend sizing up for your backup. There is no wiggle room or give to this dress so if you are in between sizes, definitely size up. The plum color lace over the black sheath is really elegant. The only complaint would be the zipper. There is a black belt that is attached to the dress and the zipper was extremely difficult to zip over the seam of the belt in the back. My husband had to use both hands and tug very hard to get it up. Other than that, it was the perfect dress for the occasion.

I felt so elegant and classy, I didn't want to take it off!
Size worn: 44
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I am usually a size 6 but I ordered the 44 and 46, just to be on the safe side, and found that the 44 fit like a glove! I love the cut out on the back and the color is stunning. I'm 6 feet tall so I was concerned the dress and sleeves would be too short but that was not the case at all. The hemline fell a couple inches above my knees and the sleeves were a perfect length. Tall girls rejoice! I got countless compliments and felt so beautiful wearing it that I was sad to see it go in the UPS envelope.

This dress is gorgeous! I wore this for a wedding in October and it was perfect. Love the opening in the back. The lace is such a nice quality and with the black fabric under the plum it makes for a nice dimension. Also the length was perfect for a catholic wedding, I rented a dress originally that was too short and they overnighted me this one. Awesome customer service at RTR, I recommend them to everyone. Love!

Great fall color with a fun back.
Size worn: 40
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this for a wedding in October. It was perfect for the time of year. The lace was also elegant and the open back added a note of sexiness to the dress without being over the top. You cannot wear a bra with the dress because of the open back but I found it really comfortable and did not have any issues. I added Alexis Bittar jewelry which was the perfect touch!

I wish the sales girl or the website had suggested I needed a Braza invisible bra; the opening in the back is huge. The VS multi-way wouldn't even work.

Didn't get to wear at all
Size worn: NONE
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
The fit was way too snug for comfort. The zipper is extremely difficult. It's hard enough to get into the dress, but getting out is no fun either. My formal is tomorrow so I really hope that the backup dress coming in fits. Definitely go up at least 2 sizes with this dress. I typically wear an XS or S and the small was just not going to work. Beautiful dress!

Gorgeous dress, couldn't have been happier
Size worn: 42
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
LOVED this dress! I had ordered it in a 40 and a 42 b/c I wasn't sure how the fit would be (I'm usually a 4), and the 42 worked out pretty well (P.S. zipper can be a little tricky in the back). It wasn't too short, fell just above the knee, and was an all-around perfect choice for my friend's wedding. The cut and style felt classy and elegant, and the backless part of the dress was a nice added touch. I ended up stopping at Vicky's Secret to find an alternative to a regular bra since you're kind of limited in what you wear with the backless part, so I got one of their backless (invisible) shaping bras since I'm kind of small in that department. :) Worked perfectly and felt comfortable dancing the night away. Got a lot of compliments throughout the night, especially about the back part of the dress. One of my friends at the wedding actually had almost the same dress from RTR but in a different color and shorter sleeves. Tried to get a picture of the two of us to post here, but it came out kind of blurry. A few other girls at the wedding had also ordered their dresses from RTR and they all looked amazing. :) I would definitely recommend this dress, and I was so happy I chose this one. Would have LOVED to keep it LOL. :)

Got so many compliments on this dress when I wore it to a dinner event.
Size worn: 38
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I absolutely love this dress. The other reviews are right, you can get away without wearing a bra with this one. The only thing I didn't like was the black satin belt had NO give, it was so tight around my waist I actually changed out of it after dinner. The dress fit fine everywhere else, but I would have liked to go a size up or get a different dress. I did email RTR a few days before the dinner and they were great, told me I could go to the store to exchange it (I just never got there) - definitely impressed with the service from RTR.

Worked great for a work-related formal gala!
Size worn: 40
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was perfect for what I needed it for (a formal, but conservative gala). I feel as though it runs on the smaller size.. I could have warn the 38 or 40 but opted for the 40 as it was a little more comfortable. Zipper is a little tricky, as it gets stuck, but I was able to make it work. Overall the dress is well made, has beautiful detail and is very flattering.

Beautiful Dress! Runs Small!
Size worn: 42
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I really loved this dress but I wish I gotten a size larger as my backup instead of smaller size!! It probably would've been better if there was some give/ elastic in the waist but there really wasn't. I'm really tall and the length of the dress and the sleeves was perfect!

Didn't live up to my expectations
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I was expecting to be blow away by this dress, but sadly I was not. The fit runs very small - I normally wear a 0 and I barely could fit into the 38 - it was very tight. Even when I took it out of the bag I took one look at it and thought it could fit a teenager! The color is a deep wine - very pretty. Also, know that this dress has absolutely no stretch. I wasn't able to wear this dress and I was expecting more of it considering the rental price.

Understated, elegant
Size worn: 38
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I rented this for a winter charity benefit in NYC. I went for a more expensive rental with not so many reviews because I wanted to be sure no one else would should up in the same thing! Although I worried a bit about the cost and the unknown, I think it was worth it in the end. No one had my dress, and it truly was perfect for the occasion. Typically I wear the smallest size available in almost everything, and the 38 fit great on top but was snug in the hips for me. The 40 was more comfortable in the hips but too big all over. I am 5'2", but the sleeves on the 38 hit the sweet spot on my wrist, and while the dress is longer on me than the model, it was still hit above the knees. I got a lot of compliments and looks all night, probably due to the eye-catching waistband and opening in the back. Despite the snugness I felt, I think it appeared to fit like a glove. I wore this with sheer black hose and metallic accessories: my own 4" gunmetal t-strap Badgley Mishka pumps ("Plia II"), the RTR Kate Spade "crystal petals"necklace for some sparkle up top, the RTR DVR "black lytton embossed lizard" clutch, and my own fun mixed material studs. The only problem is I don't yet have any photos!
