I wore this dress to a wedding and it was amazing and one-of-a-kind!
The dress is made of fabulous material, that was both flexible and sturdy. The sturdiness of the fabric made the dress flattering despite its unforgiving sheath silhouette, and the flexibility meant it was comfortable to sit in and dance in. The floral + geometric pattern was incredible, making it sweet and edgy, and the color is more of a light grey (still suitable for weddings). I highly recommend! It's one of my favorite dresses I've ever worn!

Gorgeous and flattering!
This dress was fabulous all around. Great way to step into spring. I wore a size 42, but is the equivalent of a US size 10, but I typically wear a size 8. It definitely runs small. I will rent this again! Loved it!

The cut and fabric of this dress was great. I loved the pattern. It runs a bit large. I wish I had rented a smaller size. I would definitely rent it again.

LOVE! This was the perfect Easter Sunday dress!
This dress fits true to size & has some stretch to it. I wore it on Easter Sunday & everyone loved it! It's one of my favorite new styles from RTR! I definitely recommend this dress for others to rent :)

Beautiful pattern - looks great in pics! Fabric has a little give to it, but it's not stretchy.
Very flattering fit - I have a long torso and the waist hit me in the perfect spot. And I have a large bust and it wasn't tight there at all. The pattern is so cool and the fabric is nice and sturdy - so I wasn't worried about wearing a "white" dress. didn't need any special undergarments either. I'm always in between a 6 and an 8 so ordered both. Wore the 8 since it was a dinner party and didn't want to have to wear spanx :) but if it was just for photos or cocktails, the 6 would've worked too.

So many compliments on this one!
At first I wasn't sure about the fit because the material is very stiff, but the outpouring of positive feedback was totally reassuring. It's a simple structure but the print is SO unique that it does stand out. It fits true to size.

The perfect dress for my bridal shower!
This dress was true to size and very comfortable. The pattern is gorgeous in person, and the fabric has a tiny bit of stretch. I wore with a bright pink shoe, and got tons of compliments. I would definitely rent this again for another event.

Awesome dress
The size 38 fit, but it was a little on the tight side, so I went with the size 40. It's really comfortable and breathable. Got a lot of compliments. I love the print and very flattering fit.

I wish I could keep it!
Gorgeous dress for a Cape Cod wedding that's yes, on the verge of white, but I think the pattern neutralizes it. I had so many compliments and it was a dream to wear. My only complaint is that I was in between a 38 and a 40 and I normally wear a US0. I ended up wearing a 38 even though it was a little tight in the bust, but I was able to pull it off. Definitely not a dress for anyone past a small A cup.

Yes, I wore it to a wedding.
I love you, RTR. Really. Customer service is always tops, the stylists in house at the New York locations are wise and funny, and the shipping is reliable. I would *never* have chosen this myself but a stylist at the soho location pulled it and I was so pleased ! Pros: conservative but not frumpy, totally okay for a late afternoon/evening wedding (no one gave me the stinkeye), very comfortable, and easy to move in (no awkward dress is stuck to me/chair/other thing moments). Cons: funky smell. I think it's from being in a bag at ...the warehouse ? Why does no one love you, dress ? Are you never let out of the bag ? But no amount of perfume could stave off a persistent, odd, perhaps musty odor. It wasn't bad but I certainly noticed it. Fluke ? Actual cons: you can't dance with your arms anywhere above your shoulders- the dress sleeves don't really allow for it so, no, DJ, I can't put my paws up. This dress fit my body type really well and went from ceremony through dancing with grace.

The fabric is very nice. Well made dress. Fit right on the bust area but wish it could have been tighter on my hips. Overall, great rtr experience!

Just right for a business lunch event
The fabric felt "substantial" but not stiff. I love the slightly longer sleeves that "slimmed" my arms. I wore it with blue peep toe pumps and a statement necklace.

My order arrived on time and in great condition as usual for RTR. Great experience
The dress has an awesome print, very modern and elegant. It wasn't too white for a wedding and fit like a glove. The material is thick so it really smooths the body. I wore a black bra and standard underwear and you couldn't see either through the dress. The wedding was in Spain and it was very hot but I didn't find the dress to be too hot. The sleeves were just a little snug but nothing I couldn't deal with. Awesome dress overall and the pics don't do it justice.

Loved the dress!
The dress was great! It's kind of a canvas-y material but stretchy. I rented the 38 and it was pretty true to size everywhere, but the chest area/shoulders/arms were a little snug so I'd suggest also ordering a size up. The dress is also a little more off-white/gray-ish in person. I wore it with olive green heels. I would definitely rent again!

I got so many compliments! The dress was just dressy enough for my bridal shower.
Really liked the thickness of the fabric. It made the dress keep its shape nicely. I'm between a 6 and 8 and fit into both the 44 and 46 but felt more comfortable in the 46.

Bridal shower dress
The dress is made of a thick material and was really pretty in person. My one issue was how tight it was in the arms. I am pretty athletic and the sleeves cut into my biceps a bit. Overall I got a lot of compliments.

Very pretty print and comfortable. My zipper did rip though :(
There was plenty of room around the bust which is perfect for me! I was annoyed by how much I had to pull it down all night but that could have also been because of my girdle. After the premiere (at the after party) the zipper came undone and it wouldn't zip up or down. My date had to give me his coat. Otherwise it was a very easy Experience!

Bridal shower dress
I wore this for my bridal shower. It was in March in Chicago, so it wasn't warm out--this dress was a thicker fabric so it was perfect to have that bridal feel but be warm enough for the season. Wrinkles a but easily.

Greta style and fabric.
The size 38 was too tight and I could not wear it. I'm pretty much a 0 in most things but occasionally I can wear a 2. I needed a 40.

Wore this for my tea party bridal shower and received many compliments.
Dress felt fitted and fabric was great quality. In photos it looks white but is actually beige. I felt beautiful in it. Only problem was there was a very tiny hole where someone must have caught a necklace previously. No one noticed but me, but that was disappointing. Overall I loved the dress and would recommend.

Adorable
Great dress. I wore this to my law school graduation and for dinner afterwards. It transitioned from day to night well and was comfortable. I loved the sleeve length. The pattern is really pretty, and I received a lot of compliments. I think it ran just a bit small - the 42 fit, but was a bit snug, so I went with the 44 and was happy with how it looked. One of my favorite rentals yet!

Pretty dress. Ok fabric.
I like the print and the fit is nice. Only downside is it isn't a true white like it shows in the picture. It is more of a cream. Also the material was rather thick so it is not as delicate a garment as I originally thought.

Wore the dress for my husband's graduation and dinner.
The dress fit perfectly and was great for the occasion, conservative but still very stylish. After sitting for a while, though, the dress ended up wrinkling (which can be seen in the picture). Overall great dress!

Super comfortable and a great print!
Wore this for my bridal shower. Got compliments all day. I went with a size smaller than what I normally wear and it actually fit a little loose, so rent a size down as your backup. The material is like a rough linen, but the print on it is amazing!

Very elegant and chic dress!
This dress made of a thick fabric, barely stretches, and fits just right. So, don't eat too much before the event, otherwise your belly will show. Or, for the 2nd dress size, choose one size up, not one size down. I wore this heel, which is very comfortable and matches the dress color (http://www.dsw.com/shoe/kelly+.and.+katie+letti+pump?prodId=336161) One tiny con: you can tell the dress has been washed few times, the rose color is lighter than the picture shows.

Beautiful Dress, terrible zipper construction!
I absolutely LOVED this dress, it was so beautiful in real life and was the perfect dress for a Soiree I was attending. The weight is perfect for late Fall and the pattern stands out without being too gaudy. BUT the zipper popped and wouldn't go back up just as I walked out the door of my hotel! I was SO disappointed and ended up wearing an old standby of mine that I've worn a million times. I would rent again but only as the back up due to poor zipper construction.

Loved this dress, super comfortable and easy to move around (especially with a baby).
I was celebrating my daughter's first birthday so the attention wasn't on me but I love how this dress turned out. It fit perfectly for my petite, small bust frame. Moving around and breathing was easy because the fabric was forgiving but strong enough to keep my form tight. I would totally rent this dress again.

Form fitting yet classy
Wore this dress to my winter bridal shower. The fabric is a little thicker which made it a great winter white option. I had to wear my backup size (size 6) because the size 4 was too snug in the hips and thighs. Usually dresses of this shape are either too loose up top and tight on the bottom or vice versa (challenge of pear shape), but this dress worked out perfectly. I think that was due to the cut and fabric. I would definitely recommend this dress!

Beautiful dress! Love the color, very fitted.
This dress is really gorgeous but runs a bit small if you are tall. I am 5'11 and it was just long enough, it was a bit short for me but still worked just fine for my sisters baby shower. Got a ton of compliments on the dress. If you are tall I would recommend sizing up because of the length.

Perfect dual occasion dress
I rented this dress both to wear on my birthday and for some engagement pictures. I ended up wearing the 4, which fit perfectly. The 2 would have worked, but it was very tight, especially in the underarm area. It was super comfortable, plus the fabric was a little thicker and therefore very slimming. My fiancé loved it so much he wanted me to buy it. Win all the way around.

classy look for a first communion reception. this dress is very true to size and fit just like a glove. Thicker fabric than what I expected but worked great for a spring evening. Pattern was loved by all ages. Still receiving compliments even though I rented this three weeks ago.
