Very classic & elegant
A little loose up top. I still wore spanx tights underneath to hold in the belly. Though the dress was not tight it was not as loose as I would've thought given other reviews. Received a number of compliments at my office holiday party. It was the perfect dress. Not too over the top & not to dress down either. I paired it with black tights & gold heels & the gold cuff bracket & chandelier earrings

Perfect fit!!
This dress ran true to size and I received several compliments thought the night. It wasn't too short and was breathable for the whole night. I would recommend this dress!

Classic
Runs big but the size smaller was a little too short for my comfort. That's what happens when I'm almost 30 I guess. Very comfortable and great for a winter wedding.

This was my first experience with R2R and I was so pleased!
This dress was awesome! I ordered two sizes to try: my usual size 6 and a 4 since previous reviews mentioned the dress ran a bit large. I wound up wearing the 4 because it hugged my curves a bit better. I could have worn the 6 but I probably would have belted it to give it some more shape. I'd recommend this dress to anyone and would definitely wear it again if I could!

Simple yet elegant
The dress fit generally well and the lace was beautiful/comfortable. The lining of the dress tended to ride-up, so I felt I was constantly readjusting all night. I was surprised at how short the dress was, being that I'm only 5'5". I felt a little restricted with my movements at times and needed to make sure I was covered up when sitting down and standing up. The dress may not have been the best choice for a family gathering, but I would consider ordering again for a wedding or another occasion where the shorter length was more appropriate.

Wonderful service as always!
This dress runs huge! After reading other reviews I ordered a 2 and a 4 (I typically wear a 4) and I definitely could have worn a 0 with this one! Overall a beautiful and comfortable dress!

Pretty dress - not for all body types
I did not end up wearing either of the dresses I ordered. I am usually an 8 and neither the 8 nor 6 fit correctly. I have larger hips and a smaller chest and the 6 fit my hips but was very loose on my upper body. I think this dress is best suited for straight and narrow body types or body types with more bust than mine.

Great shift dress!
Rented this dress for a winter bridal shower and it was the perfect choice. It runs slightly big so I would get your regular size and one below it. I chose to wear the larger size of the two and belt it to give it some shape. I highly recommend having a black belt on hand when renting this dress! It was the perfect length for me ( at 5'2 ). All in all, another great experience with RTR. And you can't beat the price!

The dress runs a bit big, but throw on a belt and you're good to go. It's easy and stylish for any occasion with family, coworkers or friends.

The service, product and packaging far exceeded my expectations.
This dress was perfect for the ACM awards! I typically wear a size 6 but wore a size 4 in this dress...so definitely size down. Depending on your height, the dress is a bit shorter but I felt comfortable and classy the entire night. I'd definitely rent this dress again!

Lovely Lace!
This dress was 100% fantastic! This has probably been my favorite RTR moment. I wore it to a wedding and received so many compliments! The sleeves made it perfect for a Texas winter wedding and it was super comfortable. I felt like a star!

Holiday date party
Snug in the hips and a little too loose up top, but paired perfectly with some leggings and heels. This is a late review as I wore this before Christmas. Lace was a little ratty looking but it was dark where we went so no worries there :)

Shipped right to my hotel!
Loved this look - slightly boxy in the midsection so my short waist looked a little baggy. Overall great experience and plenty of compliments! Size down - I ordered a 6, could have tried a 4.

A surprisingly great dress. It fit perfectly, and could work for almost any occasion. I would rent this again and it was my back up dress but ended up being the one I wore because I liked it so much!

Easy shopping!
This was the first time I have rented from RTR. My friends have used RTR before and had good experiences so I decided to give it a try. RTR suggested ordering a size down, so I ordered a 2 and 0. I tried on the 0 first and found it fit so well I didn't even try on the 2. I love shift dresses but found this to have less shape than normal. I belted the dress, which made a big difference. I was nervous the dress would be too long since I'm only 5'2 but it was just right. I got several compliments on the dress and loved how easy the whole process was. I'll be using RTR for all my future weddings!

Beautiful dress and I ordered 2 so the garment bag it arrived it was great for traveling with.
The dress was beautiful and I loved it. I usually wear an 8 but wore a 6. The stomach was giving so it was nice to not have it be too tight.

Super flattering and comfortable. Loved this dress.
I am between a 4 and 6 usually so I got both sizes. The 4 fit fine and was more flattering than the 6 a I think a slightly more snug fit looks better with this dress given the cut. Dress was easy to wear and very comfortable. Received several compliments. Would love to own it - very versatile! It was a fine length on me but I'm only 5'3. Might be a tad short on taller ladies.

Perfect for late fall wedding
Not as baggy as some shifts I have tried in the past... Actually shows off a little bit of shape. Got lots of compliments! Easy to accessorize. I thought it ran a little short.. Fine with me but I'm 5'4" so may be really short if you are taller.

Love RTR, second time using RTR, so convenient!
I am usually a size 4, I wore the size 6 since it was a tad bit longer and I knew I'd be dancing all night. There is also a liner underneath the last that is gold and on the size 4 it was inside out and I could not turn it right side out without risking ripping wear it attaches to the lace. So I wore the 6.

Fit was a little large. I probably should have ordered a 4 for back up. Nice dress but definitely needed to add the belt for my body type

Runs big
I rented this dress for a holiday cocktail party and based on other reviews knew to size down. I'm typically a 2, but sometimes a 4. I ordered a 0 and a 2. Both fit and would have been fine to wear. I wore the 2 just to give me a little extra length (but not much!), the 0 fit better overall but I wanted the length. This dress is short but fine as long as you keep your arms down and don't bend over. The arms on this dress are a bit tight - it wasn't a problem for me but I could see some girls having an issue there. This dress is not form fitting no matter how much you size down. It hints at your shape but doesn't hug curves. I think this dress is better suited to curvy girls with bigger busts. I didn't have much of a shape in this dress. Overall I liked this dress and thought it was very pretty, but I don't know that I would rent it again. I like something with a little more shape to it.

Very cute and comfortable dress!
This dress was super cute and comfortable! I thought it was a little big, I wish had a 2 just to see the difference. But overall great dress. I wore it to and upscale NYC party and it was perfect.

OK dress, not as flattering or fancy as I had hoped
I rented this dress to wear on NYE. I'm a true 6/8 - half the time the six fits, half the time the eight does. Only the 8 was in stock, so I took a chance as a lot of the reviews said that the dress was a little tight in the arms and bust. I'm small, but have a big bust and big hips...you know how it goes. Anyway, this dress came early and I tried it on. Not the perfect NYE dress for me. It was a little baggy and just didn't give off the WOW look I wanted for NYE. I had another house party that night so I decided to belt it and wear it out. I'm glad I did. It looked cute with the belt. I started to wonder if the six might have given me more shape and been a better overall fit. The dress is very pretty and super comfortable, but probably not the best "special occasion" outfit...at least for me.

Not flattering (on me at least)
I rented this for New Years' Eve but did not end up wearing it because I felt like it made me look like I had a large tummy area (which I don't) and no chest at all - it just did not show off any of my good features and seemed to highlight the bad ones. This dress would probably look best on someone a little bustier - just didn't fit my body type well.

Great first experience
It was my first time using RTR. I got it on time and there were no issues at all with the delivery. I wore the dress for a January wedding and I got a lot of compliments on the dress. I ended up wearing the 10 instead of the 8 bc of the skirt length. I am on 5'5" and thought the size 8 was too short. Also, I have a larger chest so I was able to felt more comfortable in the 10.

Perfect for a fancy night out!
This dress was classy and comfortable. It was a little big in the waist so I just used a thin robe belt. That also lifted it a bit since I'm short. A great dress for any winter time occasion.

Rented for my birthday dinner w my fiancé. Rented the 6 and 8 and wore the 6. Very comfortable and not too tight in the arms and a little baggy. Not form fitting but still looks good. When sitting, the back was a little short but overall a great rental! Received a ton of compliments all night!

Stunning LBD perfect for Christmas charity brunch. Very comfortable!
I really, really liked this dress! I wore it to a formal Christmas brunch for a local charity event. It was very flattering & forgiving for trouble spots. I wore the size 6 since it was slightly longer & I didn't want to tug on a short dress while sitting. I would highly recommend for a winter event!

Beautiful dress
I wore this for a birthday dinner, the 4 and 2 fit well, I went with the 2 as I wore black tights and it being a bit shorter didn't bother me. Had I wore nylons I may have worn the 4 to give a little extra length.
