I was a little nervous about my first time renting a RTR dress, but everything went smoothly -- The dress arrived on time, was clean and in great condition, and even came with double-sided tape, a little makeup bag and some freebies! I will definitely be renting many more dresses in the future.
The dress is beautiful and sophisticated, I received lots of compliments. It runs short, I am 5'4" and even the 0L was too short--I had to wear very small heels and the dress came over an inch off the floor. Definitely go for the long length if you're over 5'3". And buy some extra double-sided tape, you definitely need it with this dress. I wore the dress to a Military Dining Out event, and felt I needed to be a little more modest and tape the dress in so it didn't have such a deep V, which worked out just fine. Just a warning, the dress pulls fairly tight across the lower thigh area. I don't have much of a shape there, but the fabric still pulled and bunched up a little if I didn't stand with one foot in front of the other! You can even see that pull a little in the model photo. All in all, I was extremely pleased with the dress and was really sad putting it into the mailbox to send back!
