Would love to rent in my size!
A back up size six was sent instead of a 12! It looked rather roomy on the hips and would love to rent this in my size.

First experience - it was great!
Fit like a glove, I was very confident and it was perfect for the winter wedding I wore it to. I dropped the dress in a ups drop box location and didn't realize they didn't do pick up until Monday so I sent RTR an email and they were understanding :) great customer service!

This dress was perfect!
I wore this dress for a business event that I had to be on stage for an interview and it was absolutely perfect. Had compliments all day and continually from the photographs. I am 5'10'' and it hit right below the knees...most people complained that it ran long but this worked to my benefit. Will rent again!

Perfect!
Loved the dress, it looked beautiful and was perfect for the occasion. It was a work event and it was perfect! It was long enough, as it came down to my knees, and also the color was beautiful

I have never felt so wonderfully and appropriately-dressed for the occasion - raves all around!
This dress fit like it was custom made for me. It did not appear short-waisted like a lot of standard sized dresses fit on me. I am 6'tall and 66 years old so wanted an understated-elegant dress that wasn't too short. The best fitting, most comfortable and gorgeous dress I have ever worn! Thank you RTR - I am a fan for life!

Flattering Dress
Loved this dress! I'm usually about an 8 but the 6 just fit better. It was very snug but it shows off all the curves and the see through lace at the top is a nice touch. Would definitely rent this dress again!

Great fit
The dress is longer, which worked well for me due to my height. The dress is close-fitting in the bodice.

Classy fit
The dress looked good except that it did have a couple of snags on the size 2. The size 4 looked fine, but it was just too big on me so I still wore the size 2. Overall I was satisfied with it.

Classy Classic
I rented this dress as a backup for a wedding. Though I went with the other dress, I loved this dress a lot. The dress is a subtle shade of navy that can look black in some light (hence not wearing it to the wedding). It reached just above my knee, which means for your average woman, it will hit below.

Beautiful, well-made dress with great material!
The dress was beautiful, but it was a little too sexy for the event so I didn't end up using it. Very form-fitting, but comfortable because it had a little stretch to it. I would definitely recommend this for someone that has a flat stomach because it was very body-hugging.

Beautiful dress, longer than I wanted.
I love the fit and feel of this dress. It was beautiful and the detail at the top is perfection it was just longer than I expected or wanted for the party I was going to. I ended up wearing a backup dress but I'm happy to keep this one in my back pocket for a different occasion.

Awesome dress, curve hugging, simple and classic. Killer dress.
Can't say enough good things about this dress. It is super flattering and elegant. Never wore Rachel Roy before, it was the back up dress, but LOVED IT!

Amazing Dress
Let me start by saying I couldnt wear the dress because it "Almost Fit". I have a true hourglass shape and I tend to have to wear fitted dresses but sometimes what fits around the hips doesnt fit around the bust area. This dress was amazing look. If I could've worn a size up I would have had them ship to me immediately for my event. Professional and sexy. Need to say more...

This dress is very understated but elegant. It hugs your figure. I got lots of compliments.
I'm short, so the dress fit longer than the model. The material was comfortable. I wore it with sheer black stockings and patent leather shoes, (appx. 4") so the length was not an issue. I used a long necklace to bring attention to the lace top, since without it, it will be missed. I used a gold bracelet and gold earrings. I danced and moved in this dress with ease.

Absolutely loved this dress. Very classy/sexy.
Fit is true to size and gives your body amazing shape. I would suggest being taller to wear this due to wear it falls on the leg.

Rented for a work function. I'm 5'7 and it fell below my knees and looked frumpy overall.

I wore the size 10, though the 8 fit as well (it was just a little snugger). I'm 5'9" and this dress came down to my knees. I paired it with cream colored heels. It was a comfortable dress, perfect for a summer wedding, and easy to dance in. It was polyester, but not itchy at all. It was fun to wear for a day.

A really solid choice
I wore this dress to an informal company party (with gold strappy sandals and a loud white bracelet) and got a lot of compliments. It was a little longer than I had hoped (I'm tall, and usually things are shorter on me than on the models) but still really cute. I like the lacy part of the bodice; it's understated and really classy. The one thing is that I ended up not wearing a bra because even my strapless bra was showing through the bottom part of the lace. A fashion type stick-on bra maybe would have worked, but I didn't have the right size, and those things never seem to work right on me anyway. :) Overall, I definitely recommend this!

Great Dress!
This was such a fun dress to wear. I wore it to a spring wedding with simple drop earrings, a gold bracelet and nude pumps and got several compliments throughout the night. It's a snug fit, but very flattering and comfortable. Wear some seamless Spanx and enjoy yourself! You do need to wear a strapless bra.
