Very flattering neckline, easy to wear all night long!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress material was a little bit thicker than I expected, and the dress was very modest which was what I was looking for for my event. It was extremely comfortable though, and you can wear a regular bra with it (the neckline wasn't a challenge with normal bra straps). Perfect to wear with big statement earrings!

This dress is perfect! The material is very comfortable and the bottom isn't too poofy. The only thing Ii was worried about was the hem, because there is a little piece of fabric underneath that can show at the bottom, but it is nothing a little fashion tape can't fix (and there was a sample of fashion tape in the box!). I am usually a 6/8, and ended up ordering both and wearing the 6. The sleeve length is perfect for someone tall, and the length of the dress is perfect.

Flattering style

Size worn: 4
Rented for: Wedding
Great fit and style for a winter wedding! Wore it with the earrings modeled in the picture on RTR and tights. Very comfortable and a classic LBD. Only downside was the hem was messed up due to over dry cleaning. It ironed flat so I was able to wear it. Overall I liked it but was just disappointed for the condition.

The neckline made the dress awesome, very flattering. The shape was flattering too. I would definitely suggest a belt if you're a shorty like me though because the dress can kind of swallow you without it. It was pretty long but I wanted a longer style since it was a work party anyway!

This was a great dress for a wedding on the foggy coast of northern california!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The fit was great, I'm a bit smaller on top, and since the skirt flares out, i was able to go with a size 4. The material is nice and thick, and the dress is super flattering. My only problem was that the tiny straps used for the hanger kept peeking out from the shoulders... If I owned the dress I would have just cut them off, but instead i just had to tuck them back in every once in a while. Other than that, loved it!

The neckline really sets this dress apart. It is so cleverly made with zippered sleeves and the shape of the skirt. I originally ordered the larger size as Nanette Lepore usually runs small, but this dress was much larger. Rtr was wonderful when I called and sent me the smaller size immediately! It was perfect!

Pros: the dress is SO comfortable, it's classic and classy. Cons: the dress isn't in the best shape. It's not bad, but it's clearly been on here a while. A seam was out and there was a small hole in the armpit.

Loved, loved, loved this dress!!! Even though it was a simple dress, its my favorite rental so far.

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Other
I rented this for a simple dinner on my birthday and couldn't be more satisfied. Upon taking it out of the box, I wasn't so sure I was going to like it because the bottom of the dress has some sort of mesh hemming to make the skirt fan out in true skater dress fashion and whomever ironed it, pressed the imprint of the hemming into the dress. Luckily, it didn't show when I put the dress on and it just hung and flowed beautifully. I normally wear a 6 but the 4 fit like a glove. I have no hips so maybe that's a contributing factor. Although a seemingly simple style, it's cute and girly and at 5'8, the dress was a flirty yet classy mid-thigh length on me. Other reviews stated the sleeves were too long but I found them to be shorter than I'd like. One cute detail, though, were the zippers at the wrists. Another was the asymmetrical neckline which will be overpowered with any kind of bib or statement necklace so choose accessories wisely. (I didn't wear the jewelry in the picture.) The fabric is a nice weight with a some stretch to it. I don't have the flattest stomach on the planet but you couldn't notice a bit of bulge so if your abs aren't washboard, this is a great choice. The dress comes with inside snaps that some reviewers used to secure bra straps. I think they are there to hold down the hanger straps because they pop out if they aren't secured down. I wore a regular bra and the straps didn't show at all. My night was filled with dinner and dancing and this dress is perfect for both.

I was worried it would be too short but it was the perfect length. I received compliments all night long! Super comfy but a little loose in the waist. Nothing that couldn't be fixed with a cute belt.

This dress was absolutely amazing! It was so comfortable, & it looked so elegant for a formal event.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I put my first size as a 4, and my second choice was a 6. I'm 5'8'' and I play college soccer so I'm pretty broad along the shoulders. I ended up wearing the 6 because it laid better across the top, but either one would have worked! The length was perfect, and it hit right below mid thigh, so I didn't have to pin it up at all. I paired it with black heels and emerald green/gold jewelry and it looked awesome. I got so many compliments & the process was so convenient. It was a very thick fabric, so great for the super cold winter weather we had that night! I will definitely rent again!

I wore this dress to my sorority's preference night during recruitment. The cut is clingy, but not tight, to the waist, and the flares out in a fuller skirt. The cut is very flattering and the fit was true to size. If you have a bigger bust, go up a size though. The neckline is very interesting and adds a great dimension to the dress. This dress would be perfect for a formal affair when you want to look classy and not too revealing. This dress makes a great first impression and everyone was asking me where it was from!

PERFECT dress for a wedding! Great length and so flattering, but not too flashy!

Overall fit: True to Size

The fit was fantastic, I am very small up top and wider at the hips so this dress was perfect. Great length for a wedding-not knee length but not too short. The sleeves were very much appreciated at a Christmas wedding. They were also long enough which I NEVER find because my arms are very long. I loved the skirt and the cut of the neckline. Wore with a Nicole miller necklace from the website and it was the perfect touch!

Looking great after 5 years of marriage and one 2 year old!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
The dress was perfect for a January Anniversary date to the local casino! The long sleeves and weight of the dress were perfect with a pair of knee high boots to keep most of the chill off from the car to the building and even inside the casino. You can wear a strapless bra, or if you need straps just use a small piece of double-sided tape to hold your strap to the neckline of the dropped side or wear a black bra and it will look like part of the dress. The dress was nice and fitted on the top through the waist and then flairs right at the hips so if you are like me with "child-bearing hips" you can get away with a true to fit size!

Worn to a rehearsal dinner… very comfortable and elegant party dress! Everyone LOVED it! The mid section was a tad big and I had to pin it on the sides in order to show the shape of my body. The material is thick which was great for a cold December rehearsal dinner. So fun and made me feel very confident, which is all anyone wants! ;)

Fabulously classy dress for a fabulously classy affair. So comfortable, yet so chic!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I rented this dress for our company holiday party at our owner's house. I was so anxious to find the right dress... I wanted to find the perfect balance between fun/flirty and professional/classy (which is a lot harder than it looks!!) This was actually my backup style that I ordered for the additional, but discounted cost. I did not anticipate to like it as much as I did because of how seemingly plain it was. However, it was simply beautiful! And really complimented my curves and my neckline. It was fun to pick flashy accessories to dress it up with, too! The neckline is one-of-a-kind, and the full skirt is so incredibly flattering. It is on the shorter side, but because of the fullness, it looked totally appropriate. PLUS, I was soo comfortable in the thick, soft material of the dress on a cold night in December. Don't discount this simple dress!! It is a perfect choice for occasions like these! :)

I wore this dress to a Formal (not black tie) Benefit and I absolutely LOVED it. The fit was perfect and made me feel very formal yet not overdone. The fabric has an almost neoprene vibe which proved it very comfortable to wear while still looking polished, and doesn't wrinkle so feel free to cut a rug. I highly recommend it!

I had to pin up the hem about 3 inches! This dress is much longer than it looks on the model!! There is also a piece of mesh at the hem of the skirt that makes it flow like in the picture that I was not expecting but all I did was fold that under and use fashion tape to hold it up and it worked for me! Over all the dress was very flattering and I loved it!!

The dress was far too long on my small frame and it was extremely unflattering. The material is heavy and wasn't good for spring even though my event took place at night. I was so sad, because the dress had such rave reviews! But it was just awful on me, I felt like I was being swallowed by the dress. Between the long sleeves and the too long hemline I was just disappointed overall.

Fits true to size and looks great on - not too short for tall girls, either. Hard to wear with a bra obviously, but can still look great with strapless. Wish it was a little more fitted through the chest and waist, but that's just a preference. Still looked and felt great! Note - it's definitely a thicker fabric than I realized, so more of a fall/winter dress!

Overall fit: True to Size

This dress is comfortable and has a bit of stretch to the material. It's a bit snug in the chest so if you may want to size up but for me (B cup) the 10 worked fine. The bottom of the dress has a plastic mesh that helps with the shape however it was a bit difficult to get out some of the puckered bits and the lining would show longer at times. If I'd taken time to iron the bottom it would have been a non-issue. I wish this dress was mine!

I rented this for a February wedding so I wanted something with sleeves. The size 8, which was my main size, was unable to ship at the last minute. They sent me a back-up and the size 10 in this dress. I really liked the dress but the 10 was just a tad big. The back-up fit amazingly so I went with that one. I would have had a tough decision if the 8 had sent because the dress was very nice. It was warm and I loved the neckline.

Because of the material it is made out of, it was a little tight on my chest but not enough that would make me go up a size. The dress is very classy. With it's unique neckline I needed little accessories. Loved the long sleeves, great for winter months.
