Amazing dress!!!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I actually wore this dress without spanx which is a rare occasion! It hugged my body in the most amazing way and made me look 2 sizes smaller! Extremely comfortable to wear. The material has a little stretch, the neckline is very low, I am 5'2 and the length came a little past the knee and the lace detail is gorgeous! Great dress! Thanks RTR!

Pretty dress, nice fabric, runs large

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
Very pretty dress, gorgeous fabric. Unfortunately was unable to wear b/c it was too large. I normally wear a size 4 and the 4 in this dress was falling off of me, I think a 2 would have been perfect. Also another side note, the dress is more low cut than it appears in the photos. If you are uncomfortable with a low cut neck line this is probably not the best choice!

Beautiful, form-fitting, low-cut dress

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
It is definitely worth noting that this dress a) is very low-cut (although without showing my bra) and b) has a little stretch to it (especially up top). The bottom half of the dress was tight in a flattering, pencil skirt type of way, and I had no problems zipping up the top, although I'd been worried about only ordering a 10 when the 12 was unavailable. The lace was beautiful; the sleeves were flattering for arms that range from pudgy to muscley (but never thin!); and I felt great all night at the rehearsal dinner. Would rent it again in a heartbeat!

The RTR picuture does not start to do this dress justice!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I've rented a number of dresses from RTR and this is one of my favorites. The material/quality/detail of the dress do not even start to come through in the RTR picture. Also the dress is extremely more flattering providing an hour glass shape then the slouching woman in picture shows. I tried this and one other dress on for my boyfriend and his response (from a guy that could care less about fashion) was that this one is "a show stopper" The one thing is this dress is not for the faint of heart, is is cut LOW, as in i had to buy a special bra low. For the family/church portion of the wedding i also ended up wearing a lace insert to make it a bit more modest. Great for an A-small C but anything bigger may be tacky. I usually where a 6 but this dress is cut narrow through the hips (where I am the widest) so I ended up sizing up. The top was a bit big for that reason.

LBD with a Sexy Twist

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Other
Cannot say enough about this dress -- it is super flattering and a little sexy. Love the lace paired with the classic LBD style. A bit low in the front, so be careful where you plan to wear this one. I have rented A LOT of Reem Acra dresses and found that they are almost always a bit smaller -- this dress is an exception to that rule! Size down, I normally am a 4 in Reem Acra but wore the size 2 in this one. Tightest in the hips -- loosens up throughout the thighs.

The perfect mix of sophisticated and sexy

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
I loved everything about this dress. It was super slimming, perfectly black tie without being a gown, and I LOVED the neckline. It dips low, but it wasn't that revealing. I'm normally a 4 but in this dress the 2 fit perfectly so I recommend going down a size.

Great dress. Got compliments from men and women.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
The description says is for small chested women but I'm a 34DD and it fit perfectly in the top area. The bottom was either stretched out or just had more material in the hip area. The dress was comfortable and VERY flattering. I didnt worry about my tummy after eating and drinking all night long.

Just okay...

Size worn: NONE
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
Dress was gorgeous, but way to big for someone petite! The dress went down to my calves and the lower half was loose... I had expected it to fit more like a pencil skirt. Also had a difficult time with the zipper.

Beautiful, elegant and sexy!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
The fabric feels so good and the dress sits on my body so nicely. I can tell this is very well made dress by how it feels on. The V neckline is deep as other reviewers mentioned but it was an easy fix by using a safety fin from inside. See the photo. I used a safety fin on V for work and took the pin out for night to look more sexy and party-ready.

Gorgeous, perfect short black tie dress

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was amazing - it fit like a glove and I got tons of compliments on it. It was perfect for a black tie wedding but would be good for a cocktail attire event too. I was concerned that the 6 would be too tight around my bust, and it was tight but fine. Because it is low cut, I'd size up if you're concerned about the bust or want it to be more conservative.

Unbelievable dress!!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I have had my eye on this dress but for the price, it was on my bucket list of dresses to rent. I actually rented another dress and when they couldn't send me the right size they offered to let me rent a dress for free of any price....so I chose this one! This dress is so entirely sexy and classic. I really wish I owned it! I received compliments all night and it is really flattering.

Classy, yet sexy!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I'm between sizes, so I wasn't sure whether the 8 or 10 would fit best, so the stylist sent the size 10. This dress fit rather well, but had I sized down it may have been even better... The top is rather low cut, so I had a cami underneath just to leave a little something to the imagination and used tape to make sure the top didn't budge! The skirt is rather long - I'm 5'7" and it hit at least an inch below my knee. The dress is quite flattering, lightweight and sexy!

Stunning

Size worn: 4

This dress is stunning. Everything about it. But MOSTLY how it made me feel. It fit like a glove without being tight anywhere. It's a little long - then again, I'm short. Loved it.

Such a classy dress!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size

I got this dress because my original rental was undeliverable. I should have ordered the 8 because the 6 was a little tight (especially in the hip area). The quality was amazing and I felt very classy in this dress. Thanks RTR!

I got this dress as part of a free upgrade

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress rental would normally be completely out of my price range...but thanks to a wonderful upgrade because of damaged dress I got to try this gorgeous reem acra dress I'd been eyeing for a while. As other reviewers write it is 1) very low cut. 2) stunning and slimming. I wore it to two events. The first, I had problems with my bra showing, so and felt like it was little too much showing (though got lots of compliments from the bride and others). The second event (double wedding weekend), I wrote an under shirt, which felt a little more appropriate to a work friend's classy four seasons wedding. I'd definitely recommend this dress for a very class elegant hotel wedding. (You might feel over dressed at other types of events)... You can wear with or without spanx and feel great in it.

Sexy and elegant, with plunging neckline.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
Beautifully made, sexy and elegant. The first time I tried the dress, the size 4 (my usual size) was too long on me and the neckline plunged more than I was comfortable with for the occasion, so I didn't wear it. I tried it in a size 2 for another occasion and the length/fit was much better, though the neckline was still a little too low. I would have worn it anyway, but unfortunately the lace was ripped in a prominent area so I couldn't wear it. I think the dress would be great for people who are comfortable showing more cleavage, or who have smaller chests.

Great dress!!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I LOVED this dress. I usually wear a 4, but I wore a 6 in this and it was perfectly snug. It was low-cut, but not too much so. I didn't need to wear a bra. I would totally rent it again!

I loved this dress and got a ton of compliments. I will warn that the dress plunges much further than the picture indicates. Make sure you have some good double sided fashion tape.
