Everyone loved this dress on me!
When I saw this dress online, I knew I had to rent it. Not only was it purple (my favorite color), but it matched the wedding colors. Everyone complimented me all on this dress. The only down fall is the arms were super tight. Luckily, everyone was inebriated that they didn't notice me struggling to lift my arms above my head on the dance floor. I would suggest ordering a size above your normal dress size if you have chubby arms like myself. Overall the dress was a good fit and a hit! Thanks again RTR!

Classic and beautiful!
Loved the color of this dress. I went with the 6 instead of the 4 which is my typical size. Recommend sizing up. I didn't find the arms to be tight like others mentioned. Got compliments all night on how beautiful this dress was. Would definitely rent again!

STUNNING dress
This was my overnighted 2nd choice dress (and they could only send one!) but the stylist helped me choose the perfect size. The dress fit like a glove! As others said, the sleeves are a little tight, but I barely noticed all night. I had several people at the wedding compliment my dress & my husband wished I could buy it!! This one is a keeper!! (Oh, and it's deep purple...much different than the product photo.)

This was my free birthday dress, which worked out great because we went to a wedding on my birthday.
If you have big thighs, like I do, this dress runs very tight through the thighs. Made it a little difficult to sit and stand as often as you do for a wedding.

Perfect color and style - I LOVED this dress!
I ordered a size 2 and it fit, but ended up wearing the size 4 because the arms weren't as tight and gave me room to dance!

Great winter wedding up in the NH mountains. Lots of late night dancing & lots of cupcakes.
Great dress. The sleeve restricted my awkward dance moves. I was not able to put my arms above my head. Also i was not able to do high kicks. In retrospect it probably saved me some embarrassment. Beautiful & comfortable dress. Would recommend.

Felt comfortable and confident!
I wore this dress for a NYE dinner. As others have mentioned, the lace arms are a little tight, but not so much so that I wasn't very comfortable in this dress all evening. A couple different people said they liked the dress and then later commented that they didn't realize that it was purple! The eggplant color appears black at first when you're outside or somewhere dark, but it's actually a gorgeous color. I wore it with nude tights/heels and gold dangly earrings, but you could definitely mix it up with your accessories and shoes! I think I'll rent this dress again for a fall/winter wedding.

Comfortable and classy!
The dress fit my body well and was very comfortable. I received several compliments that I looked skinny and so the dress is also very slimming. Loved the purple color. I got a size up because I was worried about the sleeves being tight based on other reviews, and the size up fit perfectly.

Comfortable and Pretty!
This dress was very comfortable and elegant. I'm a petite 5' 1", so I struggle finding dresses that aren’t TOO long. This one was perfect. It hit about 1-2 inches above my knee. Other reviews commented on the arms being too tight, but I didn’t have a problem with that. I do wish the dress had been a bit more form fitting. It has more of a sheath fit, but it was still gorgeous none the less!

Easy to return!
Gorgeous and perfect for a Christmas party! Comfortable all night. You can wear a normal bra and it isn't too short (I'm 5'2). Sleeves were not too tight, but I couldn't raise my arms. If you are doing a lot of dancing, this dress probably wouldn't work.

Loved it!
I wore this to a work Christmas party and it was perfect for the occasion. It fit great through the waist and shoulders, was a bit loose through the bust (which I expected since I am very small chested) and was much longer on me than on the model in the picture (also expected). Over all I loved the dress and wish I owned it!

I did receive many compliments on the color and the style of this dress.
This dress was a bit tight - I normally wear a 6 and I'm glad I opted to get the free additional size in an 8 because that's what I ended up wearing. It was very tight in the arms.

Great dress, a little snug in the arms. I was worried the 4 wouldn't fit since other reviews said the dress ran small but it was great.

The 0 fit my body better, however I chose to wear the 2 b/c the sleeves are really tights & I could barely move my arms. I have an athletic build so perhaps that could have been the issue with the arms?!

This dress was great for the wedding that I attended. Not too dressy, but not too casual.
I normally flip between an 8 and 10 depending on the cut of the dress. The 8 was almost just right, but the fabric does not provide much movement so I decided to go with the 10. Not a huge difference between the two, so I took the extra room. This dress does not allow you to raise your arms very high.

I rented this dress for my husbands office Christmas party. It was perfect for a formal night out!
The body of the dress was true to size and fit well, but like others have noted the arms are a bit snug. I wore my normal size (0) and was comfortable enough. The tightness in the arms didn't distract from having fun! The length was perfect too! I'm petite and the hemline fell about 3 inches above the knee which was just right. Overall, I felt beautiful in the dress and would definitely rent it again for another more professional/formal affair.

Great dress for a fall wedding--in a color nobody else wore!
Loved the dress! The sleeves were a little tight for dancing, but as the night went on they got more comfortable. Fit is great, and the color will make you stand out at any fall wedding (everyone else was in reds and blues). Definitely recommend it!

Fell in love with this dress
I wish I had gotten a picture in it, because it was so perfect! I've worn this designer before and it just fits me like a glove (5'3", 108lb). The color is definitely more purple than maroon (I'm an Aggie, I would know!), but the purple is absolutely gorgeous... Like a very deep eggplant. It hit me about 4" above the knee, so was a bit short when sitting, but not short enough to cause any problems! I felt beautiful & classy at my husband's Christmas dinner. Would highly recommend! Wore it with RTR's antique cascading crystal necklace and it was stunning. Didn't have to wear any more jewelry with it! Also worn with light patent gray stilettos.

Such a great experience!
Ordered both the 4 and the 6. Ended up wearing the 6 because I wanted it to feel roomier. Other reviewers were correct to note that you don't want to raise your arms very much in this dress, but that didn't stop us from tearing up the dance floor at the reception. Gorgeous color, gorgeous mayor rial. Very happy with my experience.

Compliments from EVERYONE!
While the dress was incredibly beautiful, I was between sizes. I decided to go with the size 2 because it fit a little better than the 4. The arms were a bit tight, but overall it was fantastic. A little hard to raise the arms when dancing because it was a little short.

Perfect fit, beautiful magenta!
Wore for the wedding. The fit was perfect, and the length was just right. I am 5' 2" petite so I prefer very short dresses, and although this was a bit longer than I usually prefer, it looked super elegant and I got a lot of compliments. Goes perfect with gold color accessories.

If you want to dance and move your arms, pick another dress
This dress is a beautiful color, BUT it has NO stretch or give in the shoulder or arm areas. I wasn't able to close my car door and giving a hug was a struggle. Unfortunately, I couldn't last the whole evening in this dress, so I had to quickly shop for a dress between the ceremony and reception.

Lovely for the right event
This dress is absolutely gorgeous - I loved the style, fit and color. Unfortunately, it fit me to a T (length was perfection on my 5'1 frame), but it's pretty stiff. It also arrived with a few snags. I tried the size 2, but that was too big and a not as tailored. The event I plan to attend to is more than just sitting or standing - so it wasn't ideal. However, for the right event I would rent this in a heartbeat. !

Beautiful dress!
Love the color and lace. I got the dress as a backup for the dress I was planning on wearing to a wedding. I ended up also loving the other dress, so I wore this one to the rehearsal. I'm glad I didn't wear it to the wedding since I love to dance, and the sleeves were kind of tight/restricting. It zipped just fine, but if my chest was any larger it would not have. Overall, I love the style and fit. I would definitely rent this dress again.

The color of this dress is GORGEOUS! Got tons of compliments all night.
The shoulders/arms have no give and run a little tight. It wasn't uncomfortable, but I'm glad I don't lift weights or it might not have fit! Made dancing to shout a little difficult but it wouldn't stop my from renting this dress again.

Great dress for formal occasion.
As said prior- arms are very tight/restrictive. The rest of the dress runs very true to size and is very flattering. If you want to dance a lot this probably isn't the best dress. I wore it for a more formal occasion and it worked out well.

Perfect for a fall wedding!
Fit pretty well, could have been a little more form fitting but it was comfortable so that's probably more important. In person its a deep purple but it photographs different shades of purple depending on the lighting. The sleeves are on the tighter side compared to the overall fit of the dress but it wasn't a huge problem for me. Also got lots of compliments throughout the night! :)

So flattering, I've rented it twice!
Great for any body type, I think. It was so flattering I've rented it twice, for two weddings. I usually wear a 6 in pants, and an 6/8 in dresses. The 8 fit, but was a little snug in the shoulders and waist. The 10 was more loose and felt better since there's no stretch in the lace.

The dress was great for a fall wedding. It was the perfect dark purple color. The 0 fit but the sleeves were tight, the 2 fit perfectly. Great lace dress!
