Very tight in the hips !
It runs small in the hips and true to size in the chest and shoulders. Arm length is way long, I had to fold the cuffs under.

Extra Special LBD
I rented this dress for a fall wedding. The dress was well made and fit fairly true to size. Sometimes lace arms can be itchy, but this lace was soft and kept me warm and comfortable all night. The sleeves were long and partially covered my hands. I liked this, but it could cause some problems for a wearer with very short arms. The pattern on the dress was pretty and made this LBD stand out. I added a teal necklace for a little pop of color. Great rental.

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.

Nice and relatively conservative
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.

Good business dress
I wore this dress to a business Christmas dinner. The dress has enough coverage to be considered conservative and business but it does show some cleavage. I thought the sleeves were too long. I would not recommend this dress for someone that is short.

Very classy and warm!
I loved this dress. The lace looks amazing, I thought it might be a little too much, but on the contrary and it kept me warm to go out at night in the winter. I liked that it hit just above the knee. I don't like very short dresses. I am a true size 0 and the 0 in this dress fit me like a glove. Not too tight or big, just comfortable. I looked classy and elegant and felt perfectly confident in this dress.

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.

Side stares all night!
I got the dress in two sizes, a 2 and a 4. The photo is ofme in the 2, which clearly is a tad too tight haha I ended up wearing the 4 for a Valentine's Day dinner. It's very classy, just a hint of cleavage, and reached to mid-knee. I was disappointed in the sleeves, it looked like the fabric had just been cut off at the end. I think it would have looked more polished if they had been sewn. Also the bust must have been a little tight on me because they felt cramped and it looked a little off. It may be that I'm used to a tad more cleavage so the view was just different. Either way, people were checking the dress out, or the jewelry. I'd definitely go with a serious statement piece with the dress to off set its subdued look!

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!

Everyone kept telling me how much they loved my dress!
Wore this for my first big-corporate swanky open bar office party. Rubbing shoulders with the higher ups wasn't intimidating since I had a rockstar dress on a garage band budget. The dress doesn't have much give so order the right size and get a size up backup.

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

Tasteful and flattering.
Really great dress for a cocktail event. I have a large bust and the vneck was flattering. Definitely not matronly as I read in some reviews. However, the right sleeve had a slight tear that I didn't notice until I was ready to leave. Luckiy, no one noticed!

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!

Simple. Elegant. Did the trick.
This dress fit well, but was a little "worn". I was wearing it to an Oscar viewing party during the winter, so the long sleeves were nice. Overall, I was very happy with it. It was classic and elegant.

Classy Sexy
I was worried how low cut the dress would be, since I wore it to a black tie event, but it was fine. I felt like the length of the dress, combined with the long sleeves made the amount of cleavage it showed (minimal on me with a normal bra) acceptable. The dress was great for a winter event, and I wore it with sheer black stockings and black heels. The dress is high- quality, but it certainly wasn't as unique and exciting as some of the other dresses I have rented.

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.

Oh my goodness this dress is so beyond beautiful! Stop now and get it!
It fits like a glove. I rented the 4 and 6 and went straight to the 4 and fit PERFECT! I didn't even try the 6 on. It was perfect for a wedding and a very chilly day in Pennsylvania! My husband loved it and I loved that I didn't have to take along a sweater or anything! The only think I noticed was a little tear in the elbow in the lace but no one noticed that! Very beautiful dress. I love lace so totally would rent again!

Love the sleeves
It fit snug around the chest and stomach in the size 2 but was still flattering. It would have been a little baggy if I wore the 4. The pattern is pretty and the dress has stretch to it. Overall the dress was great.

This dress is AMAZING for a winter wedding, fancy holiday party or fundraiser!
If it's not your first choice, it should be your second.. as it was mine and ended up being the winner. Its a classic, LBD with a hint of sexy. Great material with a little stretch and paneling over the stomach for added forgiveness. The length was slightly above my knee and the sleeves were a bit long and gently warn .. but only you'll notice. I'm a first-time RTR gal and felt like a million bucks.

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.

I had a great time that night - my dress was original and seemingly made for my body!
Perfect for my date's company party. It was classy and a little sassy too. I got compliments all around - especially from my date! I often wear a Size 4 in dresses, but this one conformed pretty tightly to my body and its materials didn't have a lot of flexibility. So, I'd planned to wear a Size 6...then I had I had a mishap! I'd tried on the dress no less than 3 times before the event, trying to match up shoes and accessories. But, as I was getting dressed for the actual event, the zipper teeth wouldn't catch. Very frustrating! I tried everything to fix it - no luck. I ended up wearing the Size 4, which was a little tight (good thing I hadn't ate anything heavy that day!), but it worked. Luckily, RTR has provided me with a generous discount.

Loved this dress, it was my back up for a new years eve party. It fit great and the material was beautiful but just wasn't enough "pow" for the kind of party I was going to. Will rent this another event though. Great detail on the lace!

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!

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.
