The dress may have been a little bit big. I am a 4L but with this sizing I received a 40L - however the dress is floaty and flowing so it was just perfect. Had so so many compliments, I felt like an elegant fairy princess. Beautiful and elegant and feminine. would definitely rent again.

I was so disappointed with this dress. First the white lace detail on shoulder and chest is not white at all. It is the same color as the dress which makes it look incredibly boring. It doesn't drape very flattering around the chest unless one is probably at least a C cup and wearing a bra is out of the question.I ended up wearing a different dress and i was very disappointed that I didn't have a gown to wear at the event.I would NOT recommend renting this if you are under 35

This dress was terrible! It has a slip and then an over dress. The whole thing was very ratty and the seams were very unflattering. The white parts on the shoulders actually match the dress color. The sage color is hideous and, in my opinion, would not flatter any skin tone.....this dress was very disappointing.

I loved the no hassle aspect of RTR!

Size worn: 40R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I am usually a 2 or 4, and because I'm 34DD I got this in a 40L and 42. The 40 fit perfectly! Although it appears by the picture that the chest area is small, obscene cleavage was not a problem. Even my mom liked it! The lace on the shoulders is actually the same seafoam freen, but I think it made the dress better actually. The sage seafoam green I actually found to be a beuatiful color, especially with pale skin. I wore it with sparkly silver earrings, earings, and bracelets and wore mauve lipstick. At my senior prom, I got so many compliments and felt really wonderful. The onnly thing that was wrong was the hem, being a little long for me. However that was because of the long size due to a shortage of regular lengths in stock. I had to hold it up a lot on the dance floor and people tripped over me a little. But allover a wonderful dress!! Given the chance, I would wear this dress over again and rent again :):)

I loved this dress! I was afraid the extra length would be annoying because I'm short, but it was the perfect length, with or without heels. I was able to wear a strapless bra with it and it looked fine. I really loved the silky under-layer of the dress which could have been beautiful by itself! I wore this to prom and I got a lot of compliments and I felt very elegant. I had no problems with it at all :]

This dress was absolutely beautiful. I wore it to my senior prom and I have no regrets. It was a different look, but at the same time so fitting for the occasion. The color went perfectly with my skin tone and the fit was too good to be true. I got so many compliments on this dress. The detailing in on the shoulders is not as detailed in this picture, but it still came out in pictures. I would reccomend this dress hands down. If I had another occasion like my prom, I would DEFINITELY get this dress again!!

Pretty dress and color but the outside seems were in an awkward location on me. Good thing I had a back up dress.

Mostly as depicted

Size worn: 42R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
With short 2 inch heels the length (although R was not recommended for my height) was perfect; my shoes barely showed and it was just enough where I did not have to pick up my dress for every little thing. Designer sizing is ridiculous as I wore a 46R in D&G Powder Twist Gown; despite the range in sizing both fit like a glove. Only cons: the snap buttons are worn down/loose and kept coming undone. The lace shoulders are the same color as the dress, not white.

My 16 year old daughter wore this dress to her Cotillion dance and it was simply divine. The fit was perfect and it was classic elegance.

Pretty, but didn't wear

Size worn: 42R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I picked this gown because I thought it looked beautiful in the photo. However when it arrived it was about a size too big. I assumed that the dress would run small (like most Italian sizing) and since I normally wear a size 6 dress (and occasionally an 8) I ordered the size 42R and a 44R. I am 5'4" and with 4" heels, the dress was still about 3 inches too long. Also, as a 36B, the chest was a little bit baggy underneath my arms. I normally wear a size 29 in jeans and the 42 was probably a handfull too baggy around the waist. Lovely dress,flowy fabric, and a unique color. I will try to order again, but probably in 1 size smaller.

I felt beautiful in this and my husband loved it! I also received quite a few compliments from friends who saw photos.

Size worn: 38R

I wore this dress to a black tie / cocktail work function and was thrilled with how it looked and fit. The shape is incredibly flattering and comfortable, too, when you consider that you can wear a regular bra with it. It was a tiny bit long (I'm 5'4 and wore 3+ inch heels) but that couldn't be fixed by lifting the skirt a bit as I walked. The color is a soft greenish blue and the skirt detailing adds some extra panache. It paired beautifully with the necklace I also rented from RTR.

Pretty dress but too short

Size worn: 46R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
Rented it for a family wedding; beautiful dress but it was too short. I'm only 5ft 3in but the dress didn't even touch the top of my foot. Glad I rented a 2nd dress, or I'd be going crazy looking for something last minute.

I ordered the wrong size not realizing I was too tall and needed a "L" for long because I was confused enough about the conversion however I loved this dress and got tons of compliments! I would recommend it to any girl

Very delicate, very loose in hip area.

Size worn: 42R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
The top fit my chest perfectly but the fabric was sagging and was very loose in the hip area.. I ended up wearing a different dress because it did not look up to par.

Vintage!

Size worn: 42R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
This gown fit my body well, but as I usually wear a size 2 or 38r I felt it ran small being that it is a 6 or 42r. The fabric is light and moves beautifully.

I felt so glamorous in this dress! Truly like a 1940's Hollywood starlet!

Size worn: 46R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
When I first initially rented this dress, I didn't realize that I didn't order a long length. But it worked out anyway because I didn't wear heels. I loved this dress, but I don't really like where the seams landed on my hips (I think it made me look pregnant). The fabric moved very nicely and the color is exquisite! I will definitely rent again!

Beautiful dress but...

Size worn: 38R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Other
it runs very large. i noticed that all the rtr european dresses tend to run large. consider that when you rent your dress from rtr. i tried on this dress to take a few photos but i had to change into some other dress bc it was way too big on me. but if you are tall and skinny, go for this dress!
