I've been dieting and this dress hugged all my curves. I loved it! It made me feel great
It fit great. I had so many complaints on this dress. I thought I might of been able to go up a size but after hearing all the great things on how I looked in the dress I'm glad I didn't. I would order this dress again!

The dress fit beautifully and was so comfortable!
This dress was incredible. This was my backup size so it was a little big around my stomach, but overall still looked great. The sleeves were not too tight and were the perfect length, even with my long arms. I wore this to a black tie work event and felt perfectly dressed.

Perfect for almost any evening event!
This dress is amazing. It has stretch in the arms and basically all over, so I didn't need any Spanx to pull it off. It is a little on the warm side, so I don't recommend this for anytime it will be above 70 or so. Will definitely rent again!

Very comfortable and figure flattering
I rented this dress for a fundraising gala. I typically wear a 0 and while the 0 fit I decided to go up to the 2 for a little more flexibility as it's very form fitting. The only issue for me was the length. I'm 5'1" and this dress came below my knee and I really prefer the length at or just above. I got tons of compliments

Beautiful dress but size up!
High quality material and lace was beautiful. I didn't wear - the dress was too tight and I couldn't move in it. There is no stretch. I am normally an 8 or 10 am would required a 12 to make this dress fit. Recommend for straight and narrow body types.

I got complements and it was form-fitting so even though it has long sleeves and goes to the knee, I still felt sexy.

Beautiful dress - I wore for a holiday party.
This was a pretty dress and I did receive a lot of complements on it. I ordered size 4 and 6 and ended up wearing the size 6. The dress was really tight and form fitting and did not allow much flexibility. I found it difficult to sit down. It was okay for the event that I wore it to, however I don't think I'd rent it again.

Wonderful dress. Great for a night out in NYC for my beau's formal dinner party. Everyone loved it!
I am a true size 2 with a 34D chest size. This dress is flattering without calling attention to anything inappropriate for a work function fancy dinner. I ordered a 2 and a 4 for back up and wore the 4 as it fit like a glove, with no way a 2 would have sufficed. I would say it runs small, but lace typically does. so however you want to look at it- it was a great dress and super comfortable, compliments the curvy figure and is fancy without being over the top. Wore it to a Financial event with lots of big wigs. everyone loved it.

This dress doesn't stop the clock, but it is nice and relatively conservative, which is often what one is looking for in certain situations. Fits a little small, but is very comfy.

Classy for a Baptism
I wore this dress for my daughter's Basptism. I had to wear the 8 in order for the top to fit but the dress looked great and I got a ton of compliments. It was elegant and shapely, but still appropriate to be worn at church.

I didn't wear it - it was too tight!
I have been a size 4 my whole life. I couldn't breathe in the 4 and the 6 was bunching up in the back. I ended up wearing another similar dress I rented. If you like really tight dresses this would have worked. I was too uncomfortable. I was disappointed because it is a beautiful dress!

Classy dress for an evening wedding.
People are not kidding when they say it's tight/runs small. I almost always fit perfectly in a size 8, but with this dress I had to size up. The 8 did fit, very tight, but it would have been too uncomfortable to wear all night. The 10 fit me how an 8 normally would. That said, the dress was very classy and comfortably, but still sexy. The length is more on the conservative side, so it was great for dancing. Overall, this dress was perfect for a spring, evening wedding. Just remember to size up for your backup dress!

A bit tight
I contacted RTR via chat to help choose between the 4 and the 6. Based on other dresses I've worn and my measurements they suggested the 4. Good thing this was my "additional dress for $25" because there is no way I could have worn it - way too tight. I ended up wearing the Nicole Miller Kate Lace V Dress. Side-by-side there is no comparison - the Nicole Miller dress was much prettier and of higher quality.

A bit snug, but a nice looking dress.
I am 5'2'' and 117 lbs and I wore the dress to a company holiday party.. I had a baby four months ago and my stomach doesn't look quite the way it used to, so I was looking for a dress that would flatter my new frame. The dress was a bit tighter than I expected (I'm in size 2 pants now but wore the size 4 dress), including around the midsection. My chest is large right now and I was relieved that it fit in that area too. The bottom of the dress went to just below my knees and the sleeves went just past my wrist. Despite the fact that the dress was a bit more formfitting than I anticipated, it was still mostly flattering and I like the classic look and lace details.

LOVED this dress!! I got so many compliments and felt amazing in it! Will probably rent again.
It was a little snug- I'm typically a 2 or 4 and the 4 was tight. I have a small bust- good thing with this dress or it definitely wouldn't have fit.

This dress fit like a glove. It was flattering in the right places.
This dress s very form fitting and looked great on an hourglass figure. I am 5' 11" and it came just above my knees.

Gorgeous dress! SO many compliments!
This dress was absolutely stunning! It is form fitting, and has almost built in spanx, so it is very flattering! I received tons of compliments, and it was extremely comfortable to dance the night away in! Loved the length too - modest enough for a church ceremony, but shows just enough to be sexy! I am normally an 8, and I sized up to a 10 for this dress. I couldn't even zip the 8 over my chest. This is my fave rental so far!

This is a fabulous dress.
I was confident in this dress, nice fit and comfortable. The fabric is quality, with nice seaming details. I wore my size up, it was tight across chest. I attended an awards dinner and received compliments on the dress and fit.

The dress was very pretty!
I'd like to start this off by saying my body type is a petite pear, so fitted dresses like this can sometimes pose a problem - and this one did. On the bright side, the material pattern make the dress look beautiful. On the downside, the dress was very tight on the hips and very loose in the waist (as can be expected, somewhat). The dress is beautiful, and I recommend it for ladies without hips!

This was my son's wedding!
The dress ran small. I wear a 6 in everything but had to wear the 8 for the fit to be right top and bottom. It's a beautiful dress and does stretch enough for you to bend and sit very comfortably.

Fell like a million bucks!
I have rented many dresses from RTR but this is def one of my favs. I wore this to a May wedding and my arms were not summer ready but the lace on the arms makes it cool enough to wear to a summer wedding. I got a ton of compliments and felt very confident!

Would've worn it on a date in March in NYC
I rented this dress for date night in March in NYC. I usually wear a size 12 but I could tell from the picture that the fabric would be very tight so I ordered a size up, 14, in hopes it would give me some wiggle room. It did not. The 14 was so tight, showed every unwanted section, i couldn't even zip it the whole way. I imagine it would look great on a lean body type with no curves.

VERY figure flattering!
This dress def hugged my curves in all the right places (thanks to the spanx that were holding all the extra stuff in place)! I am normally between an 8 & 10, but with this dress the 12 may have been a better fit, as the size 10 was a tad bit snug around my hips (thank goodness it had some stretch). The length was perfect, as it hit just little above my knees. Just keep in mind that the fabric is great for a fall/winter party where you won't be doing too much dancing , otherwise you will get hot in it. This is a dress that I will definitely rent again!

This was fine - a solid choice for working a black-tie event
This definitely ran small - I am usually a 2/4, and the 4 was very tight, particularly around the waistline - had to get a spanx slip to make this work. The sleeves were very long, but you couldn't tell that I rolled them up.

It was so convenient for my dress to just arrive at the house! I look forward to using RTR again.
When I read the reviews for this dress, other ladies had described this dress as fitting tight around the hips. I wear a size 4 pants so I guessed that either the size 4 or 6 would work for me. When I tried them both on the 4 did not fit at all so I'd agree with them but the other area to keep in mind was the chest. I am a size 36B and the bust and ribcage area were also pretty tight. The size 6 did work for the wedding but in general the dress was snug. I'd suggest maybe trying a size bigger and then another size bigger for your event. It seems other people would agree with the chest being tight because my size 4 dress was torn in the cleavage. The torn dress didn't fit me so it didn't really matter but having the extra size is a nice perk to make you feel more confident that you will have a dress that fits. Regardless of the damaged second dress, I did enjoy my RTR experience. I have another wedding coming up in May so I'll be ordering a dress for that event too. Something really funny about the wedding I attended is that another woman was wearing the maroon Nicole Miller dress I considered renting. Glad I chose the black one.

Unfortunately the size that fit me had a broken zipper so I couldn't wear this dress, I was overnighted a new dress which I ended up liking better than this one anyway.

Beautiful and comfortable
Beautiful simple dress, and very comfortable to wear all night. I received many compliments on it, and I wore it to a formal gala. I normally wear a size 4 and I ended up wearing the 6 because the 4 was too small, so I would say to order up a size for your backup.

Great expectations, big let down
I reserved this dress for a work party in the winter time. Unfortunately, I never wore it. I found the fit to be very strange. It was tight in the bust, loose in the waist, and tight in the hips. Based on the photo, I expected it to work better with curves. The material was beautiful, though, so on the right person this dress could be awesome.
