I sized down and regretted it
I ordered a size down based on the other reviews and regretted it. It was much tighter than I expected and I didn't feel comfortable wearing it like that because of the thin material and short cut. I would say it is true to size, except for the dolman sleeves, which is just part of the style, not something you can size for really. If I ordered it again, I would probably go up a size from my normal 8. The material is textured and stretchy, but not forgiving of anything on my hourglass shape. I never wore it out of the house but I had rented it to wear to a fancy mother's day brunch.

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 :)

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

friends, prosecco and rachel roy.
I wore this dress out on New Year’s Eve and received so many compliments! Since I was in a party setting (and also one where I wanted to make an ex-boyfriend jealous), I used accessories like a gold glitter clutch and large gold earrings to make the outfit classy and fun. Fit a little loose in the upper arm and chest area so I added a brown, braided belt to draw attention towards my waist. I felt elegant all night and the ex-boyfriend felt like a fool - great start to 2012!

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!

The earrings pulled the whole look together perfectly!
I rented this dress for my boyfriend's birthday dinner. It arrived early the morning of my first rental day (which was nice). The material reminded me of an 80's wedding dress and I wasn't happy, especially for the $100 fee. It was not the quality of Rachel Roy I'm used to seeing. I ended up wearing it so as not to waste my money. It fit well throughout the bottom, but the bust/armpit area was a little bit big. I would definitely recommend this site and try it again myself!

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.

Elegant and Unexepcted!
I can't say enough good things about this dress. The fit was so flattering, and the color and texture were so unusual. I got so many compliments! It's pretty fitted through the waist and skirt, but looser in the arms and bust area.

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.

Getting hit on by British soccer players in this dress. That's a compliment!
I wore this dress to a work event where I needed to look professional, but also had plenty of guys to impress and would be in the dress for about 12 hours. Needless to say, this dress did the job! Both sizes (6 and 8) fit me. I wore the 8 during the day when I was running around as it was a little bit looser in the hips/stomach. I wore the 6 at night so it would hug in all the right spots. The fabric is unique--it definitely has an 80's esque texture, but I liked that it was different. Wish all the pictures I had in it were better. The top is definitely looser than on the model--but for someone busty, it made things a lot easier. The fabric isn't sheer either. I would buy this.

Engagement photos!
I rented a size 2 and 6 in this dress (the 4 was unavailable). The 6 was big on me, and the 2 was a bit snug so the 4 would've been perfect. I wound up wearing the 2 and it still worked out great! The material has a really nice texture to it.

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.

I'm SO glad that I picked this dress for my rehearsal dinner!
I got married in the middle of January in Pittsburgh, and I wanted to wear something white and classy for the rehearsal dinner. This dress fit the bill! Long sleeved, good length (hit just above my knees) and chic. This dress definitely hugged my curves! I didn't mind it too much, but I'd definitely recommend wearing spanx. The sleeves are a little baggier than I had expected - kind of like dolman sleeves.

Beautiful dress
This Rachel Roy dress is extremely flattering and I got a ton of compliments while wearing! I think it probably works best on an hourglass figure to show off curves. I am usually a 2/4 but size 2 fit perfectly. The color is vibrant white and the material is medium thick. Definitely recommend!

Wedding Rehersal Success
I wanted to enjoy my bridal moment and play up the part for my wedding rehersal, lol this dress was a HUGE success. I felt like I was channeling my inner Marilyn Monroe! The dress hugs all the right spots and still leaves a little to the imagination. I rented a size 10 and 12 I wore the size 12 because it felt more comfortable. I would rent this again for sure.

I would order again through RTR. The process was so easy and simple. Its just what I needed.
I rented this dress for my bridal shower. It was perfect. I loved everything about it. There is a texture to the dress and that doesn't show up in the pictures provided on here. It's even more stylish that it looks once you see it. I paired it with a belt for a little something extra but is not needed.

Classy and comfortable, I felt like a million bucks in this dress. The fit was perfect and I received so many compliments the night of my birthday dinner - both from my boyfriend and from other patrons at the restaurant (including several from ladies in the restroom!).
I love white, so naturally I was drawn to a white dress for my 31st birthday dinner with my boyfriend - and once I figured out the perfect way to "scrunch up" the sleeves, I absolutely adored this dress. The boatneck is a surprisingly beautiful neckline and I only wish I had a full length picture to show how it tapered into a really flattering just-above-the-knee silhouette (okay, I also wished we'd taken a photo before the 31 celebratory cocktails...but I digress!). It's classic, yet the texture keeps it fresh. I would definitely recommend this dress, and hope to have a reason to rent it again.

How long was it for you? I am about 5'6"
RTR CustomerOctober 4, 2012
Hi Kasi! This style is 36" from shoulder to hem so this would probably hit you around the knee!
ErikaNovember 16, 2012
Yes, it just about the length as it appears on the model. I'm a little over 5'7" and it was perfect. Not too short, but not "work only" long.
NikkiApril 12, 2013
Hi Erika! I'm interested in how you made the adjustments to the sleeves. Can you explain?
ErikaMay 10, 2013
Sorry for the delay, Nikki! Yes, I wasn't a fan of the 3/4 sleeve and how it fell on me; it wasn't fitted enough and just didn't look right. So I pulled the end of the sleeve all the way up above my elbow and pulled the additional fabric down over it so it "bloused out" a bit. This looked and felt so much better!

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!

Classy and chic
This dress is incredibly chic and very classy. It's perfect for any conservative event - I wouldn't say it's a super fun dress to go dancing in. The material surprised me when I saw it, it's lovely and give the dress that something special. The dress had some stretch but not too much. The bottom was a little tight, but worked in my favor (I'm between a 6 and 4, I may have been more comfortable in the 6, but they didn't have it when I ordered it). The top is just so classic, you really feel like Jackie or Michelle.

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.

I received the dress in due time.
It fit fine, a tad bit tight. But the coloring was off-white and not white. I believe it's due to the wear and tear of the dress.

Such a sexy dress, but with a conservative style.
I rocked this dress with blue heels for my bachelorette party. It's form fitting, but very classy. I feel gorgeous all night! Very comfortable material. Would love to rent it again!

I LOVE this dress!!! Worn for my engagement party <3
This dress is so flattering and sexy without being scandlious... :) I love this dress and I'm having a hard time parting with it. The dress is not white as it appears in the pictures. It is a light light cream. Absolutely Gorgeous!
