Time with Family and boyfriend.
Loved the style of this dress. Received TONS of compliments! It was a bit tight around the waist because of my body shape but I would wear the same size again to another event without hesitation. The length was not a problem for me because I'm a shorter person. I felt very confident wearing it. Thanks RTR!!!

Lovely summer wedding at a country club in Newton, MA.
I normally wear a 0/2 in most dresses. I decided to go with the 4 as backup and I ended up wearing that. So happy I sized up. I have a long torso and needed the bigger size. All evening I got SOOOO many compliments!

This dress was a hit! Very comfortable and easy to move around in. I ended up going up a size because the skirt was a bit short. Overall, a success!

Show stopper!
I wore this to my sisters bridal shower- you can see that nothing beat her in her dress; however, I received so many compliments on this dress. I vary in dress size from a 2-6 depending on the brand, and I had to wear the 6 in this instance. The only bad thing was that in some pictures, it looks like I have a fat roll bc of where the dress cut, but overall it was super cute!

So Many Compliments!
Like other reviews, the zero was a little tight around the shoulders, so I wore the two. The dress is very comfortable and is designed to pass for any season of the year. I do recommend this dress, but it is a little more formal than the general look of the wedding I attended this weekend. So, keep the event dress code in mind. I look forward to using RTR in the future. The process was seamless!

Standout party dress
Rented this dress for my friend's wedding. After looking through several options I just couldn't stop coming back to this fun dress! I never thought I would wear tulle at 30! ;) I have never received more compliments on a dress before! I rented a 2 and it fit well. I usually rent a size 2 & a 4, but the 4 must not have been available. The skirt was a bit shorter than I expected, but it was fine. Nothing that made me feel uncomfortable. I read an earlier review to make sure to take the dress out of the bag immediately and let the tulle settle- that seamed to help a lot. I would totally rent this dress again!

Love
Fit was perfect. Dress was advertised as gold and it was more rose gold but other than that I had no issues. It looked beautiful on me and I was complimented all night. Will use RTR again. I ordered sizes 0 and 2. My pants size is 0 but the 0 dress didn't fit. I wore the two very comfortably.

Cute and fun dress. Lace top stops a little above waist so it makes your torso seem a bit smaller but overall a great dress.

Such a fun dress! Sizing up allowed for a better overall fit.
I rented this dress two years ago for my rehearsal dinner in a size 6 (8 was not available at the time and size 6 was a stretch). It zipped fine, but the waist was WAY too high and the skirt was far too short, so I did not wear it. Knowing the fit, this time I went up to a 10 and got a 12 as backup. Both sizes fit and looked fine. Sizing up 1-2 sizes, the skirt length was more appropriate for a wedding (I'm 5'4", it hit right above my knee) and the waist hit lower so I did not look squished up in the chest area (I'm a 34 DDD). Note that if you do not have a large bust, sizing up might now work - the top of the dress has lots of room. I loved it and I will rent this one again!

Blushing bride-to-be engagement party cocktail dress stunned everyone!
This dress took the cake! I am 5'7 & wore the size 12. It showed off my curves in all the right ways. I wore this at a cocktail engagement party thrown in honor of my fiancé & me. I truly loved it! My friends & family were blown away. It is equal parts fun & romantic, flirty, & elegant. The black lace & pink tool paired perfectly with bone-color stiletto heels & pearl earrings. I chose a darker smokey eye makeup with the black lace & a lighter lipstick & blush to compliment it. I was comfortable mingling, sitting, & standing. It fit very comfortably in my waist, bust, hips, thighs, seat, etc. It is a shorter cocktail style, but that is what I was going for! I had 180 likes on Facebook with everyone begging to know where I got this dress! This was my first time ever using RTR & I have recommended it to everyone. I am a customer for life!!

Perfect dress for an outdoor, summer wedding!
This was a fantastic dress for a summer wedding as it was light and comfortable. There was a small tear in the tulle when the dress arrived, however I was the only person to notice it. RTR and I sorted out the tear in no time at all.

I loved the dress and I got so many compliments on it. But it was way to short. I am short with short legs but I didn't want to dance. Scared to show anything

My cousin got married!!
Very glam, VERY poofy (moreso than I had anticipated). It reminded my mother of Degas' Dancer sculpture, so naturally I took a photo in the same pose. Got lots of compliments and felt comfortable in it throughout the evening.

Everyone loved the dress, and it was perfect for a friends wedding.
It was great having the backup size, as I actually went with the smaller fit. I liked the sleeveless aspect because I tend to not fit dresses through the shoulders. The bodice was snug, but in a flattering way.

Something fun instead of the standard LBD
Fun, poofy dress. I wore the 12 because the skirt of the 10 was way too short. The slip of the 12 was sewed to the dress inside out, so you could see the hem and side seams. I wore it anyway because while the dresses arrived timely, I did not due to flight delays. I had No time to exchange before the event. Lots of compliments. It did feel very poofy, but it was cool for a hot summer wedding in the south.

I have a large bottom therefore it did make me look too puffy. Also, getting it steamed was a bit hard since it has so many layers.

It was such a fun dress to wear!
The fit was so flattering. I was nervous that it would be too short (I'm 5'7), but it wasn't - it was just perfect. The only reason this dress doesn't get 5 stars is that the under lining rode up a bit - but nothing that wasn't manageable. would rent again in a heartbeat.

I wore this dress to a wedding and felt really comfortable in it! Very fun dress!
I am 5'8'' and weigh 130 and I normally wear a size 4 or 6. I got both of those sizes and they both fit but the 6 I felt more comfortable in. The 4 seemed to be a different color and size on the bottom and you could see the fabric under the tulle because it was really short. The 6 seemed a lot more worn but looked nice in pictures (I was probably the only one who knew). Because both dresses were very different is why I gave it 4 stars. Delivery and returning were a piece of cake! And I do think the dress looked nice in photos!

Little pretty dress, big compliments
This dress is gorgeous. I had a little bit of problems with the skirt at church since it was a really hot day and I started to sweat so the skirt stick to my legs a little but overall I enjoyed this dress and got lots of compliments. At the beginning I ordered a size 4 but had to return and change for a size 6, since it was my first time ordering in RTR I wasn't sure about the size but they help me and quickly got the other dress the next day.

I ordered a 4 & 6, and should have picked a 6 & 8. Pro's the dressed looked exactly as pictured on website. Con's were the dress was on the small size to be labeled a 6.

Beautiful dress, felt like a ballerina
I'd been debating this dress for a while and decided to pull the trigger for a Broadway themed wedding in Miami. I rented a size 0 and 2. The size 0 was BEYOND inappropriate for a wedding. Granted, I'm 5'5 and was wearing 5 inch heals but still. The 2 did this strange bulge at the seam in front and made it look like I had a tire, you can see on the picture. The 0 didn't have this bit due to modesty, I wore the 2. The tulle on the 0 was also much more work and flat while on the size 2 it looked newer and was much more stiff. I loved this dress and would have given it 5 stars if the front seam wasn't so strange. I revived tons of compliments regardless!!

Wonderful!
I absolutely loved this dress and would wear again! I typically wear a 0 in dresses but as other reviewers said if you have a larger chest the 0 is too small up top. I felt like SJP on Sex in the City.

Flirty and flattering
This dress runs small - I typically wear a size 4 or 6 in RTR dresses but am so glad I ordered a backup size of 8. The 6 fit but was much shorter than the 8, and I am 5'7" so the 8 was much better length wise (still short but acceptably so). This has a tulle poufy skirt, with a fitted stretchy top. Very flattering and shows off your legs and waist. The back is gorgeous too. I wore this for our anniversary trip to Paris and it was perfect for what I wanted. Flirty and fun and a bit ridiculous but pretty and fun to wear.

This dress!
I am glad I ordered the back-up size in this as I'm normally a size 4 and wore the size 6. I wore it for a military cocktail reception, however. I wish it was longer to the knee. Overall, I LOVED this dress!

Great dress, but definitely short!
I really loved this dress overall, but if you are nervous about wearing a very short dress, be warned! I'm 5'9", and the dress was definitely shorter than my fingertips- more like mid thigh. The fabric is strikingly beautiful, and it's really a very flattering dress overall. Tons of compliments all night, and I loved dancing in it! But be sure to wear something sensible underneath just in case. . .

Fun party dress!
I wore this for a rehearsal dinner that I was attending and also singing at. The bodice felt a little snug in the size 4, so I opted to wear the size 6 because I wanted the dress to fit more comfortably while I was singing.

Out of the ordinary!
At 50 I was afraid this dress might be a little "young" for me - and maybe it was, but I liked it anyway. It was a tad short, which is rare for someone my height, but fit nicely. The tulle was super poofy on the sz6, but rather limp and much thinner and "worn" looking for the sz4 (which was much too small anyway). But it calmed down by the time I got to the party and looked nice. I wore a belt with it (hard to see in the photo) to define the waistline. Sure was unlike anything else at this very formal affair but I didn't feel underdressed. Recommend- but maybe more appropriate for the under 50 set ;)

Insane amount of compliments! So pretty!!!
Wore it to an outdoor wedding. This dress is absolutely gorgeous. I had probably 10 people tell me how amazing my dress was. Even had a guy come up and tell me all his girl friends made him come over to ask where I got it. So classy and elegant. The fit is kinda strange around the neck and arms (tight). Usually am between a size 0 and a 2. The last time I wore this designer I wore a 0 but this time I had to wear the 2. Only ordered a 0 so RTR was awesome and overnighted the size 2! Great customer service! I didn't even need to steam it as it was in great shape upon arrival. Overall great experience and would definitely rent again. Wish I could afford to buy it!
