Dress fit perfectly and received so many compliments ALL night!
The fit was true to size, and the regular length was perfect. I am 5'5 and wore 3-4 inch heels. I originally thought about getting the 6L and am very happy I didn't because it would have been way too long. I am also very very picky about my arms looking fat (which is why I stay away from strapless) and found that this dress was flattering at all angles. It was super comfortable all night of the wedding and was able to easily dance the night away in it. I got a million compliments on this sleek dress. I also had no issues with the dress staying up. There is a sticky sort of material that lines the top of the bust so the dress sits very nicely. Very happy with this choice and would rent it again.

Beautiful Dress! I received many compliments!
Loved loved loved this dress! I rented this for an Army Ball and it was such a classy, beautiful gown! I typically rent a 4 & 6 and usually go with the 4. In this case both dresses were too tight. I ended up going with the 6 and it worked out perfectly because the material stretched a little throughout the night and ended up fitting perfectly. The only reason I didn't give the dress 5 stars is because there were two hanging hooks at the front of the dress that were constantly popping out and were pretty obvious. I wasn't sure if they were permanent or if I should cut them out. I decided not to in case they were important but they bothered me all night. Other than that, the dress was a perfect rental, came early, another successful RTR experience!

Stunning! Figure flattering, and comfortable.
This desks was easy to wear, the ruching was figure flattering and the slight stretch made it extremely comfortable. I did use garment tape so I didn't have to worry about the sleeves slipping. At 5'8" the long size was perfect with heels. I received many compliments and felt beautiful. It was perfect!

Great dress, a bit too long
This dress fit perfectly except for the length. I rented a 2L and it was a bit too long for me. I'm 5'6" and wore 3" heels. It wasn't terribly noticeable so I pulled it off. But pay attention to length if renting this dress

Gorgeous, comfortable, and glamorous.
This dress was perfect for the black tie award show that I attended. I am normally between a 2 and a 4, but the straps stayed in place much more easily with the size 2. The dress is comfortable and stretchy, but holds everything in place nicely (I wore Spanx underneath, just in case, but I don't think they're really necessary). The bust area is very tight - if you are bigger up top, you might want to consider a different dress. I wore the dress with 3 inch heels ( I'm 5'6"), and they were the perfect height for the dress. The front of the dress is a little higher than the back, which has a mini train. I was so sad that I had to send this back!

The process was so easy and convenient. Others reviews were very helpful with picking the right size
I typically wear a 2, but this dress runs small as others reviews suggest so I ended up wearing the 4. It was so comfortable and the material was really nice.

It was so easy to get the dresses and return them!!
I'm usually a 4 but the 6 fit way better, the Long was perfect since I wore tall shoes and I'm 5'7". Dress fit snug and the ruching was great around the stomach area, plus the material was thick! Great dress and I definitely recommend :)

This dress was the perfect combination of elegance and sass!
This dress was almost perfect! It ran a bit long, even with heels, and the off shoulder sleeves felt a bit tight, but otherwise it was the perfect dress for the evening! I got a 2R as a backup, but didn't even bother trying it on because my original choice was perfect. Thanks so much #RTR!

Elegant, gorgeous, comfortable!
I wore this dress to barrister's ball (law prom). I read reviews that it ran a little small so I sized up to a 6 (usually wear a 4), and it fit perfectly! It has a bit of stretch to it, but it is a pretty tight dress with ruching so I didn't need spanx. I didn't feel constricted in it and was able to dance all night! Would definitely rent again!

Wore this to a gala and received so many compliments that the dress was "elegant and stunning."
Is quite form fitting so definitely size up, especially if your curves are at the bottom like mine. Ruching and fabric helped hide and flaws and flatter figure. Long - I'm 5'4 and wore 3 inch heels and it was just right.

Very flattering
Dress was perfect for a black tie event. Flattering, true to size, and pretty long. I'm 6'1" and wore flats. It was about 2" too short, and although I prefer lots of length to cover my shoes, I got away with it wearing tights so my skin underneath the dress wasn't obvious. Overall, super good choice.

This dress is stunning. It's simple yet elegant.
The dress fits like a glove but it has a bit of stretch to it. I ordered the regular length and it was perfect once I had heels on. Everyone complimented this dress. I felt absolutely beautiful in it.

This dress is timeless!
This dress is a dream! I struggle with figuring out sizing on fitted dresses because I am small at the waist but have pretty wide hips and at 5'4" the 6P fit me like a glove. Because the 6 Regular wasn't available, I got the short size and it fit just right with flats but would've been too short with heels! Loved this dress- so classic, so elegant.

It was effortless to wear and I got compliments all night! The dramatic off-the-shoulder stood out.
The Vive dress is on the left with the pink clutch. I have an athletic build, usually wearing size 2-4 tops (bust 32DD) and 4-6 bottoms. I wore the 6P and it fit like a glove. I didn't try the 4P on but I think it would have been too snug. The off-the-shoulder sleeves stayed in place through hours of dancing. I am 5'2" and the 6P was a great length with 3" wedges. Quality of the fabric was excellent and forgiving. I didn't wear any spanx undergarments or felt like I needed to. Overall, this was a perfect dress. Beautiful silhouette, comfortable, and memorable. I can't rent it again because everyone noticed it the first time! Loved it.

Most gorgeous dress I've ever worn!
This dress was a fabulous choice for the black tie wedding I attended in DC. I am normally a street size 6, however the reviews made me second-guess what size to order. I messaged one of the RTR stylists and she made her recommendations, which I really appreciated! I went with a 10R because the 8R was already sold out. I think the 10 looked great and it was extremely comfortable, although if I'd had the choice I would have worn an 8. I felt like I had about 2 inches of extra fabric in the bust and maybe 3 in the waist, although not even my hubby could tell until I specifically pointed it out. The length could not have been more perfect - I'm 5'5.5" and wore a 3 inch heel. I had originally planned to wear spanx but i didn't feel any need to because the fabric and rouching smoothed my whole figure. I would not hesitate to rent this dress again for a future formal event.

So classic, yet very sophisticated
This was my first rental with RTR and I was very anxious about the dress fitting me, but after reading several reviews I decided to go with 0R and 2P. I rented this dress for my senior prom and I wore the 2P with my 2-3 inch heels and it fit perfectly. Even though the dress was very simple, I stood out because how timeless the dress is. The only problem was the zipper pull; it would fall off because of how many times the dress has been worn. Other than that, it is definitely the most elegant dress and I received many compliments all night.

Flattering, classic Black dress
I didn't end up wearing this (it was a backup dress), but it was very flattering and would be great for a black tie event. The material was thick and may have been warm if you ended up dancing.

Rented this for an evening formal wedding and it was a beautiful very appropriate classic dress. I read a lot about it running small so I rented a 6 and an 8 just in case and the 6 (my normal size) fit beautifully.

So elegant!
This dress looks AWFUL on the hanger!! I was so relieved when I put it on, and it fit perfectly! I wasn't sure of my size, so i guessed, and it worked out. This fabric is sort of stretchy, and the rouching on the front and back, is very flattering. I was comfortable sitting, standing, dancing AND eating!! So many complements, and I felt great! I will be using rtr for all of my upcoming events!!

Incredibly flattering! Wow!
This dress was a head turner! It fits all the right curves, yet comfortable! I felt incredible in this dress and my boyfriend couldn't stop staring at me ;) If you don't want a dress to fit every curve, this wouldn't be for you. It is tight in the bust, so I'm unsure how it would have felt with my body size and a larger bust. I wore 3 1/2" heels and it just brushed the floor. 4" heels would have worked perfectly as well. The slightest "train" in the back is an elegant touch that I loved. I would absolutely rent this dress again!

Classic elegant black dress!
I loved this dress, though it was tight in the bust. I am 5'9 and I wore 2 inch heels. The dress hit the floor and was the perfect length. Though I wear a size 10 in clothing, I buy 12s in dresses because my bust is 36DDD. With the tight bust/strap it was slightly uncomfortable, but the fabric was really forgiving. No complaints with the exception of the dress coming slightly wrinkled.

Would've been great if I got the size I wanted
I didn't wear this dress because I got my back up size (6) instead of my first choice size (4, which was "unavailable to ship"). The bigger size made the rouching hang and bunch. It made me look big. It's a shame to say, but this has now been multiple times in a row when I rent and instead of getting what I want, I get replacements. The stylists do a great job, but it's getting pretty annoying how replacements are more the norm than not.

Stunning dress with beautiful neckline
Amazing dress that was both extremely flattering and very comfortable. I was able to dance all night and received tons of compliments on how elegant it was! Would definitely rent again for a formal event. After reading the reviews, i thought i would need the 6R, but the 4R fit better (likely because I have a smaller bust). I'm 5'4, 135 lbs and the length was just right with mid-range heels.

Unforgettable
I've rented many dresses but this by far was the most comfortable dress I've worn. No adjusting, nothing sticking, and no scratching. This dress is so elegant and classic, I felt like a glamorous Hollywood movie star. The detail in the back, the way the dress hugs your behind, makes it so sexy. My husband loved it! The material doesn't give a whole lot of stretch but it moves so well, I didn't need it to stretch. I ordered a size 4L, which fit, however a little snug in the thigh area, but was way to long. The size 6R was perfect!

This dress fit me perfectly. I'm barely a b cup with broad shoulders and wider hips. It made me look very thin and curvy in just the right places. The rouching covered up all my flaws. I didn't wear a bra or need any spanks etc. I'm 5'8 and most of my length is in my body not my legs so the regular length for perfectly with 2.5 inch heels. Had I gone with higher heels, I would have needed the long. Easy to walk in, dance and get in and out of.

Elegant and Comfortable
Wore this to a black tie awards gala for work. Incredibly comfortable and flattering, while still appropriate for a work event. I'm almost 5'6 and with 3" heels it was still dragging on the floor a little bit, but otherwise fit great and I felt great! Received a million compliments. Another great RTR rental!
