This was my backup dress and I did not end up wearing it, but it was still a fabulous dress. The boning for me was a little wired in the chest area but I have a very wierd frame.

When it came it does need to be steamed. You can tell that the dress has been worn many times but for such a beautiful dress it is worth it. The only con I have for it is the top. It does need double sided tape.

The dress arrived and it looked disheveled. I didn't understand how the dress was supposed to look. It did not come out looking good. Didn't use it for my event.

Pretty but too tight around the bust

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress would have been very pretty but I couldn't get it zipped up over my bust. There is NO give in it on that count. This was a size 8, and I consider myself to be a 6 or 8 depending on the cut. Ironically, my back-up style fit perfectly as a size 6 and the size 8 was too roomy and too long. So you have to pay careful attention to the notes by raters and the discussion with a stylist was very helpful. Also, be prepared to do a lot of steaming of this dress. Very carefully packaged, but it is just the type of material that wrinkles if you look at it.

Too complicated of a dress for me

Size worn: 4R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I am so glad I ordered a back-up dress, because this dress definitely looks a lot better on the model. There are two pieces or straps that are hanging off the dress, and everyone who saw it were confused as to how there were supposed to lay on the dress. Girls who are curvy - this is not the dress for you. The cut stops right at the hips, and there is NO give or stretch, so if you're an hourglass or a little fuller on the bottom - this will not work for you. Lastly, this dress comes very very wrinkled. Be prepared to have a steamer with you. There are so many layers of fabric, ironing it will be difficult.

I wore this dress as my talent gown while I sang. It fit beautifully and even though I'm petite (5'2) the drop-waist didn't shorten me at all. Very comfortable and looked wonderful onstage.

Pretty but seemed a bit worn. Shirring and draping are probably more flattering on someone less curvy.

Great Dress; however, it arrived rather wrinkled and was tough to steam. It is a beautiful dress with a great cut. I am 5'6 and the dress was a little long so just make sure you take that into account.

I had high expectations with this dress. I had ordered it for my friends' wedding, and even had it steamed the morning of. When I went to put it on, even with my strapless bra, the top of the dress would not stay up.

Way too big

Size worn: None

I rented the 2 and the 4. The dress was so so big I could barely try it on to see exactly what it would look like on me. Also, It sits very weird on the hips. Luckily I ordered a back up dress that I loved. Love RTR for that! The only thing I say positive about the dress is the color is very pretty.

Weird fit

Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I had this shipped to me as an alternate because the other dress I requested didn't have the second size I requested. You have to have a certain shape for this to look good. The bottom of the drap wraps around weird and didn't fit right. I think this dress would look the best on a curvy figure.

Great Dress Too Short

Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wore this dress to a Mardi Gras ball. The color was vibrant and perfect for the occasion. I typically have to order longer lengths due to my height but I was unable to wear normal high heels (3 1/2 inch) because it was too short. I had to wear a very low heel for the dress to even touch the floor.

this dress arrived and i was excited to open the package because my pass rentals were great. i was disapointed. the dress ran really small in the bust (im a 32DD) and it didnt look like the picture. it also had some wear and tear to it. would not recommend this if u have a bust bigger than a B cup.

dress needs to be replaced

Size worn: 0R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I received the 0 and it somewhat fit. the top of the dress where the 'glue' was to help keep it was was flipping over and the boning was bent in a strange way, facing out. It obviously had been worn which I expected from a rental dress, but the dress was too worn where it looked 'frumpy'. I was very upset since it had come the day before the military ball and had to go out and buy a $200 dress and then had to wait for my credit to rtr which I wont use on a dress since I wasnt happy with what I got.

This was my back-up dress so I did not end up wearing it, but I really liked it! Gorgeous fit... and I am very hippy yet this hid it well. The built-in bra was extremely comfortable! The only negative i saw was that all the ruching and draping fabric around the middle seemed to add a bit to my waistline, though maybe for some if you were trying to camoflage a tummy it could work....

Not the best

Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I ordered this dress in two different sizes just in case. I can say that it is true to size and I liked the built in bra feature. However, it just looked awkward after it was on. The extra fabric in the front just made me look bigger in the front and the back. I would only suggest this dress if you are really skinny and have no curves at all. Luckily I had also gotten a back up dress from RTR which turned out perfect!

Disappointing 1st rental

Size worn: 6L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was great and I was very happy with the fit and length. Being so tall, it's tough to find full length gowns that reach the floor. But other than that, I am pretty disappointed with my first RTR rental. The dress was very very worn. Actually, I had to sew the boning back into the dress since it was fully sticking out on the inside and dug into my side. There were also obvious snags all over the top of the left breast. I feel like once certain dresses get to such a worn state, that they should not be rented anymore. I will not pay $100 to rent a dress again unless I know the condition of the dress is truly up to par. I hope in the future that dresses are inspected better before being sent out to the next renter.

Beautiful Color

Size worn: 12L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress I received had seen better days. I worked for about an hour to get the wrinkles out, and still missed some right down the front. The two loose pieces that crisscross the dress in the middle were almost impossible to get looking the right way and the top of edge the dress kept flipping down to show the seam. I tried the tape with it, but it didn't help. The color was beautiful, luckily the place I was at was a bit dim, so maybe no one else noticed that I was working with the dress all night.

Beautiful Dress

Size worn: 10R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This is the original dress I was going to wear. I went with 8R and 12R I'm normally between 8-10. 8R fit and was wearable but I had the upper muffin top hanging out so tried on the 12R which was a bit loose but did the job, until I noticed it was torn in the back wear one of the criss-cross fabric connects to the dress. Looked at the 8R and it was also torn in the same spot on the other side and had 2 stains right wear your bottom would be. Called customer service and they where AWESOME to overnight me another dress (Theia-Navy Taffeta Ruched). Beautiful Dress but didn't get to use.

Dress fit well in the chest because of the built in bra but was a little loose around my hips (I have small hips and rear). I ended up wearing the backup dress I'd ordered. Plenty of length in the 0L, and the color would have been great for someone a little less pale.

I was apprehensive about ordering ths dress, but my whole family voted for this one, and I'm glad I did. This dress was a major hit at the New Years' wedding we attended! I received many, many compliments from guests, even the groom whispered in my ear, jokingly, " try not to upstage me at my next wedding"! I ordered a 2L and a 0L, which the 2 was too large in the bust and waist area. The dress is gorgeous and is flow-y and the dress looks better in person, The purple is more if a plum, which I was fine with. Thanks for yet another successful rental experience, RTR!!

It could have worked but there is so much fabric in the front for detail that it made me look way bigger than I liked. This dress is so beautiful and was bummed it didnt fit!

Overly Worn

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress needs to be retired. It was very embarassing for me to have to wear this, as the boning kept popping out all night. The backup dress that I ordered was way too scandelous. Aside from the boning all of the fabric at the top of the bust has been worn off, it looks like too many times of dry cleaning.

This was the 2nd time i gave this website a chance and could not wear any of the dresses AGAIN. This one was my 1st choice and the phrase "dog-crap(to be nice)" came to mind. Someone stitched a different color purple into a hole in the very front of the bodice. No self respecting NY'r would leave the house in the shape this was in. Beware of the size 2. It will fit but you cant walk out of the house wearing it.

Beautiful dress. I'm rather thin but have boobs and butt for my thin frame and this dress showed them off nicely. My only complaint was that the inner layer had some bra like closure that was slightly awkward and didn't seem to help keeping the dress up for me.

I am a size 8 with a full bust and an hourglass figure (34DD), the size 8R fit both my bust and my hips but was lose around my waist. There was lose fabric just drawing attention to that area and making me look larger. While the dress could zip I would not say that it fit. Perhaps this dress works better on straight frames who's wasit does not nip inwards. The dress is gorgeous and the length with heels was perfect. I wish it fit!!

I wore this dress this weekend for a gala and got tons of compliments! The color is beautiful but unfortunately the dress did show some signs of wear. The ruching over the stomach area was flat when it arrived and the dress was a wrinkled mess. There were two straps of random fabric hanging down in the front (the criscrossed fabric over the hips in the picture) that definitely drew attention to the hips and butt. I immediately took it to the dry cleaner and they were able to make the ruching and criscrossed fabric look quite a bit better. I also put in bra cups to fill in the bust. The length was perfect with a stacked heel. It does fit tight around the hip/butt area and did ride up a little bit. Overall a beautiful dress that was perfect for me and my event but be prepared to spend the extra money getting it pressed at the cleaner.

Rented this for a black tie wedding. Beautiful but runs small and did not flatter me and the generous booty I've got (as the ruching stopped right over the middle of my rear end...) Wish I could have worn it as this would have been a beautiful dress. If you have hips, size up ladies... size up! :-) On the plus side, the long is definitely a *true* long length (unlike some of the other "long" dresses that still end up being too short on my 5'9" frame), so get your cute heels out tall ladies and party on.
