Amazing dress!!
I rented this dress to wear to my daughter's baptism 8 weeks after she was born. It looked amazing, and I got a ton of compliments. The dress accommodated my large chest and the style minimized my baby belly. I wore some spanks to slim my curvy hips, and it looked wonderful! It made me so sad to mail it back.

Very classy dress
I wore this dress to my office holiday party and got lots of compliments. I'm petite so the top was a little bit large, but with the wrap around part I could get a pretty good fit anyway.

Not as pictured
The dress looked like a dull cotton dress and was much less festive than it appears in the photo. It looks like it's shiny but it was really blah and boring and cheap looking. Furthermore, the zero was very tight in the chest and the size 2 I ordered came with a damaged hem so I got stuck wearing the tighter dress. Thankfully it was dark out and I wore a jacket over it.

This was the first time in a long time that my mom really felt fantastic about her looks. I was so glad to share the RTR experience with her, she deserves to feel glamorous!
I rented this dress for my mother (who is 54 years old, 5'8" and a Pear who usually wears a size 8 or 10) and she LOVED it. She looked amazing, and felt amazing, and got tons of compliments. It was the perfect look for the retirement dinner/cocktail party we attended, just formal enough but not over-the-top. We got the Miriam Haskell pearl necklace and Lee Angel pearl earrings to go with it. Now she's addicted to this site like I am!

Pros: I got lots of compliments Cons: Fit is terrible, especially at the top, just too boxy. In addition, the fabric was quite dull compared to the photo. It lacked sheen. Overall, it was kind of disappointing.

I wore this to an autumn wedding. Extremely comfortable fabric; fit is easy to customize as the straps wrap across the body, then around to the back. LOVED the dress!

Definitely a classy dress but it ran large in the bust and shoulders. Also, the length and cut makes it more fitting for the office or an occasion where one might want to be more conservative.

I wore this to a holiday cocktail party with crystal cluster earrings. I felt great and I love the tie belt that makes the dress feel custom fit. Very ladylike and beautiful.

I LOVED this dress. It has stretch to it so don't worry about it being snug. I'm a 6 and the 6 fit perfectly. I wore it with teal satin Manolo's to a rehearsal dinner.

Conservative dress for a conservative wedding
The hips fit me as expected but the bust/shoulders was very roomy. (I wore a 2; I have 32B bust). Great, sturdy fabric. I wore it with black heels and chunky faux pearl necklace.

this dress runs a tiny bit small thru the hips. I ordered a size 4 and the bodice fit great but I had to wear spanx to find it a bit more comfortable. but a great look.
