Lovely & Elegant!
It was a little worn, but on the night of it didn't matter much. I was told by three men that I looked like a movie star (as they all guessed which one.) My husband loved to claim me! ;) It was perfect combination of sexy and elegant; I loved feeling classy and still young/fashionable.

Great dress. The bodice was bit worn due to the many wearings , but w/ sticky tape... gorgeous!
elegant, form fitting, and great color. I'm 5'3 so the dress was quite long...had to wear platform heels to keep the train from getting caught. Loved this dress!

Beautiful and comfortable!
I loved this dress. The size 0 and 2 were nearly the same in fit, but the 2 was slightly less tight, so I wore the 2. The length was fine with tall heels and the lace straps were a pretty touch. There are two buttons at the back of the neck that are tough to get buttoned, so I needed a little assistance with that. The navy blue color is not overpowering as it looks in the photos, I think a camera makes it stand out more. The material of this dress was very comfortable and made it easy to wear all night.

I rented this dress for a Marine Corps Ball. I received compliments all night!
loved this dress and felt beautiful. It is so elegant, and perfect for a formal event. I ordered this dress in an 8R and 10R (the 12 R was not available). I wore the 10R. The dress was form-fitting, and hugged all the right places. The dress was a good length with my 3 inch heels. The straps were a bit long and stretched out, but I was able to place a stitch to hold them in place. I felt the top seam was a little snug around my bust, but not uncomfortable.

Stunning showstopper!
I absolutely fell in love with this dress. I rented the 12 and 10 with the stretchy material the 10 fit better. I was stopped many times at the gala I attended and had people tell me how amazing my dress was. It was absolutely flattering on my curvy figure. I loved the lace and the overall fit is true to size. I would recommend this dress to anyone!

Lots of compliments and super comfy!
I actually wanted the In Demand gown but it was too tight as a 0. The RTR team sent this as backup. I could have worn the 2 but I opted for the 4. It is so comfortable that I never thought about it all evening. It looks dark when you put it on but I was super happy when I watched a video of myself and saw that under the lights...it comes out blue! Many people complimented me and it is super flattering and forgiving too! I highly recommend this! Classy, tasteful but still has some sex appeal too! Rent it!

Pretty Dress!
I thought this dress was gorgeous. I am 5'3" and it showed my shoes - so it's short!! Additionally, I had to pin/sew the straps in the back, because they were REALLY long. But, I'm petite, so that is a common alteration I require in my clothing. The dress is quite snug, but the lace detail in front and back really helps you make the most of your shape. My husband loved it, and I felt really beautiful. I would be inclined to rent this dress again - However, I think the rental price is a bit high. When it arrived, the lace was squished, and didn't quite lay right, but I was afraid to iron it given the delicacy of the material. It was quite obvious the dress had been worn a lot, as it was stretched out in the bust and bottom. I was able to wear it with a regular bra, which is important because I am quite busty. I danced the night away, and had a great time in this dress. I recommend it for curvy gals!

Wore this dress with 3"inch heels & still felt it was a tad too short even after ordering the Long. Other than that, received SO MANY compliments on this dress! Hugged my curves beautifully :-)

Compliments all night; fit like a glove. Hugged all of the right places. So comfortable. LOVED THIS!
I had rented a different dress for a black tie wedding which came in damaged. I called RTR and they a overnighted this dress as a replacement. What luck! The dress was gorgeous a bit brighter in person. I felt beautiful in this gown and received compliments all night. I wore the 0R. I am a zero but sometimes have to wear a 2 because of my bust; then the dresses are large in the waist/ hips. The 0R in this dress fit me flawlessly. I am little at 5'3 and wore 6 inch stilettos which kept the dress off the ground just enough that I wasn't tripping over it. I HIGHLY recommend this dress.

Great dress, be sure to notice that there are two colors - navy and cobalt - pick wisely!
I ended up wearing my backup dress but not because this dress wasn't fabulous -- it was! The backup was just a knockout that couldn't be missed. I'm 5'10" and this dress (I chose the navy) was long enough in the long length for a short (1.5") heel but no more. Glad I ordered the long. The shoulder straps are narrow at the bottom and would have possibly required some tape to stay put where I wanted them rather than shifting toward the middle.

Elegant gown - lots of compliments
Beautiful beading on the dress made me feel really jazzed up for my husband's formal winter work dinner. It was comfortable and I could eat and dance without worrying at all. The dress was heavy because of all the beading but it wasn't uncomfortable. This was my second choice - I had wanted the red dress by the same designer, but I am glad I got this dress instead. It really brought out the blue in my eyes!

The ladies at this gala are always dressed in beautiful gowns. It was wonderful to be a part of such a great event. The dress fit well and has some stretch to it so it was comfortable all night. Sitting, stairs and dancing were not a problem.

Too tight & more bust than I have...
Two girls were wearing this dress at the black tie wedding that we attended (and the dress looked absolutely FABULOUS on them).... Does show that it's a very popular style. I'm a little too pear shaped for it and a little too small in the bust to fit well into this dress. I don't have the abs I dream of - so I just looked a bit frumpy and bumpy in this skin tight stretchy dress.

I love this dress. It was my second option and I ended up having to wear it because my first choice had arrived with a small tear. The RTR team was amazing and resolved the issue with the other dress and although I was completely in love with my first choice and couldn't wear it, this was a beautiful second choice. LOVE

Fabulous dress, perfect for a classic look.
The dress fits incredibly well and has a nice give to the fabric. I received multiple complements and felt very comfortable the entire night. I am 5' 5" and wore the 2, regular dress with about 5" heels, which was perfect.

This dress makes you feel so elegant and beautiful!
I wore this for the Commadants Ball for the Marine Corps and as you can see from the pics, this was a popular dress! I could only upload 3 pics but I did find and take a picture with the other woman wearing this number! Our collective complaint was the straps were too loose and for me, I would have had to have pined them to make them tighter, otherwise, it was perfect for this event! The material is fitted but not tight. The lace and color as you can see from pic # 3 is beautiful!! You can not go wrong with this dress, WE ALL LOVED IT!

I am also 5'3 130 and 34D...which length did you order? and what height heel
MichelleJanuary 29, 2014
I ordered the regular length, my heel height was a 3.5-4" inch heel if I recall and it worked out well. You will love this dress!

I wore this to a black tie party in Aspen! Its super flattering. Loved that I could wear a bra with it and it didn't show at all. I'm 5'11 so it could of been an inch longer (I wore the 8L) but it was perfect really.

I wore this dress to the ROTC Army Ball! Got many compliments! Love this dress!
Beautiful dress! It came early and it was so easy to send back! dress fits tight (very snug around the stomach, hips/butt), but runs true to size. The lace is beautiful and adds the perfect touch! I felt very comfortable wearing the dress- easy to sit (doesn't pull) and easy to dance in. I wore this dress to a military ball. I will definitely order from RTR again! :)

Age Inappropriate
I'm a fairly conservatively dressed teenager; but this was too much! This was a backup gown I received and I tried it on very briefly before I knew it would not work. The material is beautiful and luxurious, but it seemed very mature for me. The fit was also not particularly flattering. It hugged me in the wrong places and made my stomach more pronounced. This dress was definitely not the prom gown for me. The details and soft lace fabric are definitely very pleasant though and I would recommend it to someone who wants a conservative but sexy gown.

This dress fit great and was so comfortable to wear. The length was perfect with my heels on and very easy to walk in. I did need to tack the lace and shoulder straps down in the back, but besides for that it was a wonderful dress to wear for the night.

Beautiful, glamorous gown that is very comfortable to wear.
The dress is true to size. I didn't think the length was an issue at all and wore 3 inch heels. The one problem that I had was that i thought the back was not flat to my skin. The lace in upper back shoulders was kind of blousy. Perhaps if I had bigger breasts to fill out the dress, then the lace detail in the back wouldn't be so weird. Even when I put on the smaller size though, the lace was still poofy-ish. I just ended up going with it. My husband told me that I was overthinking it. Regardless, it's a nice dress.

Night to Remember 67th Air Force Ball!
I fit between a 6 and 8 (6 zipped but was afraid would be too uncomfortable) went with the 8 but actually was a tad too big around waist but not noticeable. perfect length! Only sad thing was I have been renting for years and this time I saw duplicate after duplicate of RTR dresses at the Ball especially in the Navy blue! Thank goodness none of mine but, many of ones I had my eye on. Will still continue to do RTR for all my events you always come through for me!

Love rtr-it's become a staple of my wardrobe!
The dress was beautiful and easy to wear-able to move and dance freely. I received many compliments throughout the evening. The back of the dress was very elegant. I would highly recommend this dress for any formal affair. It ran true to size and I wore 2 1-2 heels ---no need to schlep the flats.

So glad I chose this dress!
This dress is wonderful! I didn't want to send it back. It hugs in all of the right places and has beautiful detail. I thought it looked far more navy blue than what the picture indicates, but that was fine with me. I was going to rent a very similar Nicole Miller dress, except it was strapless and I'm SO glad I chose this one. The cap sleeve is very lovely but also covers any "un-toned" under-arm areas. :) I felt so great in it. Also, the entire process with RTR was so easy.

I've never felt so pretty and elegant in my life. Everyone had something to say about my dress.
This dress is snug to the body and hold u like a glove. its a perfect fit for people with hour glass shape. The lace detail really makes the dress stand out and gives it glamour. Im 5.7 and the 2L was perfect for me obviously with heels if not its pretty long so make sure you wear 6 inch heels. The dress was super comfortable i didn't want to take it off at the end of night. I def recommend this dress if you want to be WOW factor of the night.

Second dress for my wedding, and it worked perfectly with the medieval decor of the reception venue!
Its very stretchy so it should fit a lot of different sizes, but its not very structured, so even though I don't have a big tummy, it still showed it off in pictures. The key whole back and the lace really make this dress amazing!.. the only thing is I think i should have pinned the straps to make them a touch shorter, because of the open back, my bra kept showing (maybe if I had a bigger bust, that wouldn't have happened?) All in all, it is absolutely Beautiful! I had 3 rent the runway dresses to choose from, and all of them where stunning (and fit great!), this just happened be the best, most comfortable one.

I loved this dress and received many compliments all night!
The dress fit like a glove, literally. It hugged every curve on my body in a good way. It was form fitting, but not too tight where I couldn't dance. Initially I thought the lace on the back felt a little loose and it could be from it being a popular rental dress, but as the night wore on I didn't even notice it. I rented the 6R and the length was perfect with 4 inch heels. The rental process was so easy, I will be using RTR for my next event. Thank you so much!!!!!

Great dress but too long
I loved this dress and wish I could have worn it to my event. Unfortunately, it was too long, even with heels. It looked beautiful otherwise--it had a great fit and thick enough material to be extremely flattering.
