SO MANY COMPLIMENTS!

Alright... So I was worried this dress would be way too tight in the top based off of other reviews and the fact that I have larger than average shoulders for my size, so I sized up for my backup size... This was totally unnecessary since the 2 fit like a glove - just fitted enough without any pulling of any kind (thank goodness for a smaller chest in this case) and perfect amount of volume in the tulle skirt. You may have a difficult time with this dress if you are tall or busty/broad in the shoulders. I found it perfect for length, but it would have been too short for my comfort at a Catholic wedding if I were taller. As far as the details of the dress, the lace is gorgeous. The high neck is not itchy at all, which is so nice - no necklace needed! I will say... There was one small hole/tear in the back/side of the skirt, but it was completely unnoticeable. DO NOT wear any jewelry that might snag the fabric - the tulle is very delicate! Even my wedding band got caught once when I was smoothing out the skirt, but THANK GOD there was no damage. The skirt was a little clingy on the inner layer, so get some static guard! The poofiness of the skirt is perfect, but a little high maintenance... You do have to smooth it out quite a bit every time you sit down/stand up. Besides a little skirt smoothing, the rest of the dress stayed put and was very comfortable and easy to dance in. Overall, I would recommend this dress. It is STUNNING - the perfect amount of girly/ballerina meets fancy. I got complimented by almost everyone at the wedding both old and young, and was told by several people that they thought I was the best dressed! To me, it is not a dress you could wear more than once or twice because it's actually that unique and special, so thank you RTR! You will feel amazing if you rent this dress!

Love this dress!! So much fun and I received many compliments!! Did not want to send it back!!

I rented this dress for an evening bat mitzvah party. Both the 4 and 6 fit but I decided the 4 had a better proportion for me. The 6 was slightly longer and seemed like a little too much material.

Gorgeous dress. I had so much fun flaunting that I forgot to take a full sized photo. Oops!

I typically wear and size 8 and maaaybe a 10. I had a major freak out when this dress arrived the day before my event and the 8 wouldn't smell my body and I could barely breathe in the size 10. Fortunately RTR overnighted a size 12 which was perfect. Maybe the dress runs small...maybe I gained a few pounds and had no idea. Regardless, it was stunner.

Such a pretty dress! Got compliments all night!

The skirt is made of tulle and is pretty poofy, which got a little uncomfortable sometimes. However, it photographed SO well.

Fun and flirty, Cute and Girly!

I'm a High School Assistant Principal and I wore this to my student's prom. I was a little concerned by the underslip b/c it kept riding up when I sat down, luckily I stood up the majority of the time! I wish it had more or thicker tule so the underslip wasn't necessary. However a size 14 may have been a better fit for this dress, but I had fun with it anyway!

Perfect Party Dress

Rented this for my daughters Senior Prom! It was amazing!! All the cons- working w/ RTR was excellent, dresses came on time, super simple to send back. Dress was in great condition, it fit her athletic form perfectly. The only issue we had was the zipper was a little hard to get moving, my husband put something on it, and then we had not problem. The hem of the dress was a little uneven, we were trying to lay it flat, and I'm not sure if it had been torn, cut, or is suppose to be a little jagged. You couldn't tell unless you were looking for it. The dress is short, my daughter is only 5'4 and she wore little sport shorts under the dress.

Received numerous compliments!!

I loved this dress!! Had so many people stop me and say how much they loved my dress! It was very short, mainly in the back I had to be careful when bending over. But, the tulle made it look so classy even though it was short! Tall girls can still wear this dress! Just wear some spandex short shorts under it just in case haha!! The 4 and 6 both fit I just chose the 6 for added length. Both sizes in mint condition too! #showstopperdress#classy

Just a little too short to feel comfortable!

This dress was great and true to size. It would have been perfect but for the length. It was so short that I didn't feel comfortable or decent!

My favorite RtR dress so far!!

I loved this dress. It was comfortable and I felt very sexy in it! I am usually an 8 and read the reviews that said it runs a little small. The 8 fit great but was a little snug around the chest, the 10 definitely was a little looser around the arms but I would rather be more comfortable than less! So glad I went with the 10. It was comfy all night and I felt like I could eat and drink without feeling too stuffed! I will say, it is a short dress. I love wearing short dresses so it wasn't an issue but if you're self conscious about your legs or it's not your style than I wouldn't get it bc it is short. It was definitely "me" though And I would rent it again in a heart beat!! A friend complimented me saying the dress was very "sex and the city" I'll take it;)

Classy and unforgettable dress for my daughter's 8th Grade prom!

I rented this dress for my daughter's 8th Grade Prom. This dress was absolutely amazing and so different! She is tiny (4'11 95 pounds) so it was hard to find a dress that didn't swallow her or look like she was playing dress up in an adult dress! This dress fit perfect all around. I received more compliments on social media that I knew what to do with! Love love love this dress!!

Such a pretty, fun dress!

This dress was awesome. I ordered size 2 and size 4. They both fit about the same, the main difference was in the length of the dress. The size 2 was quite a bit shorter, but the tulle was bunched and staticky with size 2, not at all with size 4. I am guessing the size 2 had been worn and washed more. I figured I would be annoyed all night with trying to straighten out the tulle, and I'm glad I wore the longer one. You will receive 900 compliments if you rent this dress. One awesome thing about it- you can wear a regular bra with it, which is huge because I HATE strapless bras. Great dress!!! I wish it was in my closet!

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!

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.

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.

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!!

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.

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.

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!!

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.

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!

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!
