Good dress for bachelorette party or night out

I rented this to either wear in family pictures or to wear to work and it was not appropriate for either occasion. Would be great for a bachelorette party or night out. As far as fit, I am between a 2 and 4. I rented the 2 because the 4 was not available. It was fitted in hips and butt which is why it ended up not being appropriate for work or family pictures. Dress had clearly been worn lots and lots of times. They will have to retire the one I got soon :)

Perfect for winter affair!

I wore this to my wedding shower and it was perfect. I had read it runs large so I got a size zero and it for amazing. The lines on the dress and the material and very elegant and flattering. It was amazing!

This was a perfect LWD for my anniversary date. It was classy yet sexy!

This dress was classy yet still sexy. It fit exactly how I wanted it. Not too tight or too short. Looks much nicer in person than in pictures.

Perfect dress for a winter event since it's a cozy dress. It's so comfortable and flattering!

It's true to size and very comfortable. I changed into it for the reception of my February wedding and it was perfect! I could see how it might get warm in some situations but it was perfect for me all night long.

Perfect something borrowed for my court house wedding.

This dress couldn't have been more perfect for my courthouse wedding. I wanted something with sleeves since it was December but, finding a white dress fit for winter was difficult. Thanks RTR for solving my problems. I rented an 8 and a 10. Could've gone with the 8 as the dress cut was larger than average up top. Chose to wear the 10 though because I knew I'd be eating and didn't want to be concerned with sucking it in lol.

Warm, Comfortable dress!

I rented for my catholic Church rehearsal and rehearsal dinner. I usually wear a 8 or 10. Both fit but the dress wasn't as conservative as I thought it would be so I wore the 10 (more booty room). I'm 5'7" and it was definitely a few inches above the knee. Easy first rental!

Perfect back up

So first dress (another style) I ordered was not the best fit. The team at RTR made this magic happen. It was perfect for us to renew our vows...again. It happens a few times a year at least. Pictures turned out great. The long sleeves kept me warm in the winter morning. Thank you, thank you!

Great for my elope day! Elegant, sexy and just gorgeous.

Snug around hips, looser up top. Very comfortable material. Make sure you select the correct undergarments or they may show.

Beautiful texture, a bit loose

I got a bigger size because I knew it would be really tight around my hips and stomach. Unfortunately that means it was really loose around the arms. Beautiful dress nonetheless

Dress was too small

I usually wear a 10. The 12 was too small in the hips and just looked all wrong. I was so disappointed. I love the look and texture of the dress otherwise.

Beautiful, classic, retro

This was the perfect dress for my simple city hall wedding, which was sort of 60s/Jackie Kennedy inspired. I wore it with emerald pumps, seamed stockings, & paired it with a faux fur mink when it got cold. I normally wear a 2, but a 0 fit perfectly, so it does run a little big. I wore it with cream colored shape wear so nothing would show through. It was perfect.

The fabric had an interesting weave to it, so it was not what I expected.

Great dress

I wore this to my husband's work holiday cocktail party. I loved that it was white, since almost everyone else was wearing black and red. It was very comfortable and easy to wear. It was appropriately conservative for the party, but is curve skimming. I think it runs slightly large, but as I said, the fit was perfect for the occasion.

Wearing white was a mini-preview to the big day!

I wore this dress for my engagement party. It was absolutely perfect for the occasion. The arms of the dress are a bit large, they are certainly not as form fitting as depicted on the model. I normally wear a 4 but the 2 fit better through the upper body. I would recommend wearing spanx underneath. Love love this dress!

My mom got a little teary eyed when I tried the dress on for her. :)

I wore this dress for my bridal shower and I had so many compliments on it. It looked very classy and fit me nice in all the right places. My friend said, "you look like a real WOMAN in that!". I am small up top and it gave me a little more shape with the nice neck line and sleeves. However, I ordered a 2 and a 0, thinking I would fit in the 2 but actually I felt it was a little bit big in the waist area so I went with the 0. It looked very nice on. I would absolutely recommend this dress! If you are pear shaped, it may run more true to size for you.

Not what I expected

This dress looked amazing in the photos but was not at all what I was expecting. It was very baggy in the sleeves and did not fit me, either size that I ordered. Therefore, I ended up wearing something else.

Loved it!

I rented this as my backup dress when I ordered the Milly Metallic Bow Dress, which is the one I ended up wearing. I LOVED this dress and wish I was able to wear it. It ran a little large and the armpit area was slightly large, but I loved how classic and elegant it fit.

Chic bridal shower dress! Super comfy, too.

I wore this dress for my bridal shower this past weekend. It was super comfy and chic. I probably would have ordered a size down, if I had realized how flattering having a bit of a more form-fitting fit of this dress provides. Brides to be: I definitely recommend considering this dress for your pre-wedding events!

Wore this great dress for our film premiere's Red Carpet at the Prescott Film Festival, Arizona! xox

I couldn't have been more happy and comfortable in this beauty of a "Texas" white dress. Everyone loved it at the premiere and took tons of pics. It's light, soft, textured, & lined. It makes you feel like a star and is a head-turner! I wore it with heels on a T.V. talk show & turqoise jewelry, then switched it up with Cowgirl hat, belt, n' boots for afternoon V.I.P. party! Didn't want to let it go -it's a winner for all occassions & body types - 5 star all the way! I LOVED IT!

Who says you can't wear white after labor day?

I wore this dress to the NYC Ballet Gala. It was incredibly comfortable, but still felt chic. Great for an event where you have the option to wear a ballgown, but might prefer to wear something a little more comfortable and dressed down. It's also the perfect length - not "too" sexy, and very classy. My only complaint would be that the forearms were a little tight! And I have slender arms, so that could be an issue for someone who doesn't. Do not be fooled by the picture - the fabric has a very pretty pattern on it. It's not just cotton. This was good for hiding mild imperfections. I was able to wear spanx under this, and because it's got the pattern, you couldn't see the waist line of my spanx (which I always worry about when a dress is a little on the tighter side). Would totally rent this again! Sidenote: I'm normally an 8, but was able to wear this in a 6 because it runs large.

Unfortunately, the dress looked so different from what I expected that I didn't wear it!

I didn't end up wearing this dress for my event because the fit and fabric were very different from the photo. The photo looks form fitting and structured. The actual dress shape was a little baggy, especially the sleeves. The fabric is crinkly and more of an off white than the photo shows.

Nice but, off white

I wore this for my great-grandmothers funeral. All the women wore white in her honor. I wasn't too happy to realize that this dress is more cream/ivory than pure white. It was still beautiful though. Runs large. Usually I wear a 4 but the 0 fit me best.

Great white dress to wear to any occasion in colder weather days....

I rented this dress to wear to adult baptism...it was the perfect dress for occasion. Not too revealing..perfect for Winter white dres..material looks very fancy...it could be dressed up or down...as all other reviewers say, it's loose at top but that's how the style supposed to me. I'm 0 or 2 in general and even 0 could have been just a bit smaller for a better fit...overall, would definitely rent this dress again!

This was the perfect dress for my rehearsal dinner and for the wedding after party!

I usually wear a size 4, but I ordered a 4 and 6 because of the reviews that I read. I received the dresses the day before my rehearsal dinner and found that both of them were too big. I contacted RTR and they overnighted a smaller size that arrived at 3:30 the next day. I am so impressed with the customer service and products that RTR provides. I felt like a classy lady wearing this beautiful dress!

This dress exceeded my expectations! I received so many compliments & felt confident for my big day!

There were no "cons" for this dress. As far as white dresses go, this covered any and all flaws (I did wear spanx, but still...) - and the dress was elegant and sophisticated - yet sexy at the same time.

Perfect dress for my bridal shower!

My party had a London theme (hence the fascinator) because we are moving there shortly after our wedding! This dress was so perfect for the occasion, very Kate Middleton! I was complimented all day, and felt amazing! The dress designed to be looser at the top and thought the sleeves. The bodice of the dress is a little more true to size. I usually wear an 8 or 10 and somehow got into the 6! The only negative about this dress is that the material is thick and HOT! We had the majority of my shower outdoors in June, and I was too warm the whole time. Other than that, its really a great dress, and I would rent it again :)

Great length and bottom fit, but way too large up top

I was very excited to wear this dress for a work cocktail event. Unfortunately, the dolman style upper body was too large and frumpy for me. Additionally, the fabric was quite worn. First time not loving an rtr dress - I'll of course keep coming back!

Perfect for City Hall!

I wore this dress to our civil ceremony in Manhattan, and I felt so classy! I rented both the 6 and the 4, but like the more fitted feel of the 4. I wore this with Badgley Mischka's Bride to Be Belt and their Crystal Cluster earrings, and carried Whiting & Davis's Mesh Glam Clutch. I had the perfect outfit from RTR for the occasion!!

Great winter white dress, runs large.

I rented this dress for my November engagement party, but as I'm pretty petite, I found the backup size 0 to be too large. The sleeves on this dress are slightly dolman sleeves, and it was too large in the shoulders/bust area. Luckily my mother fit into the backup size 2, and looked great. The weight of the fabric is nice for colder weather - I just wish it hadn't been cut so large!

Not great if you don't have a large bust

Not as flattering as it looks on the model. I tried it on for my rehersal dinner but the bottom fit somewhat tight, while the top looked like a large sack on me. Material seemed nice just not great if you don't have a large bust.

I wore this dress for my company holiday party!

Fits a little loose up top and in the mid section which was great for my baby bump. I was 6 1/2 months pregnant. I could have worn the 8, but I liked the tighter fit for my stomach. I would suggest to wear seamless panties either white or sheer. This dress was a little see-through with the tighter fit.

Great dress for winter bridal shower

Fun dress for my bridal shower in January. Loved the long sleeves and soft fabric of this dress. Was able to dress it up with a belt, chunky necklace, and colored pumps. The top and sleeves are a little baggy (which is the style) so that's why it runs a little big.

Lots of compliments, more beautiful in person.

Wore this to a dinner my mom was honored at. Had a hard time deciding whether to wear the bigger or smaller size, ended up going with the smaller but it was very fitted. It's a gorgeous dress, the fabric is stunning and it makes a nice statement at a winter event. The style, as you can see in other photos is looser around the upper body and arms and more fitted around the hips. For a comfortable fit I'd go down one size for the more fitted look go down 2 sizes, but only if you feel good about rocking a tight white dress. I'd recommend - had a great time wearing it and everyone was telling my family how wonderful I looked!

I received so many compliments in this dress! Everyone wanted to know where I got it.

I wore the Rachel Roy Tex dress to my bridal shower and I wouldn't change a thing about it. It was glamorous, comfortable, and the fabric is stunning! It is way more beautiful in person. I received so many compliments! If I had the budget, I would purchase it for myself! This was my first time renting and I have already rented another dress for a different event. Nothing but good things to say about RTR :)

You'll feel like the First Lady!

This dress was absolutely phenomenal! I rented this for my rehearsal dinner and I received oodles of compliments. I was told I looked like Claire Underwood (for those House of Cards junkies, HUGE compliment). It is a sophisticated dress because it is on the longer side, but it is fitted enough in all the right places to be just a little sexy. I dreaded having to send it back! Amazing dress. It runs large I thought. I normally wear a 4 and the 2 was perfect. Get this dress! You won't regret it. I will definitely be renting it again for a work party or to wear to something more conservative.

Too fancy/conservative for my groom's dinner.

The gown I rented for my groom's dinner didn't make it in time so the stylist was nice enough to send me two choices. I was excited to wear this one but it wasn't quite right. I was grateful to have a choice but the fit was sort of poofy through the shoulders and bust, I felt like it would be something you'd wear to a more stuffy affair like a fundraiser or something? It looked nice, but wasn't my style. Oh well, the other one they sent was amazing!
