Perfect for a fall/winter wedding!
Great dress, I added a black satin sash to break up the lace. Worn with black tights and black patent pumps. Lots of compliments all night!

BEAUTIFUL LACE
This was a perfect pick for an evening wedding in Los Angeles. The lace & detailing are simply beautiful. I expected to wear the 6 but the 4 was a better fit. The stylist suggested it needed gold accessories because of the tan slip. And that's what I selected (Alexis Bittar Double Loop Encrusted earrings, DVF gold boombox clutch). However, I believe white gold or silver would be just as fabulous.

Didn't end up wearing this one
The dress was nice - it fit and made my waist look tiny! but the lace was a bit itchy and scratchy. I knew I would be uncomfortable dancing in it all night at a wedding. So I didn't end up wearing it. The bottom did fan out a lot in the back - kinda made me look like I had a big(ger) booty! I would recommend it to girls with small or flat butts. And if you don't mind the scratchy material. I just liked another one so much more - otherwise - I prob would have ended up wearing this one.

This dress was great and fit perfectly.
The dress fit great but would definitely recommend that you should wear a belt to split up all of the lace. The lining on the bottom kept showing so that was a little annoying but received a lot of compliments on the dress.

Classy & Elegant
I rented this dress for my husband's workplace Christmas party. I didn't want to look too stand out, wanted look classy and also elegant. And this dress was just right! I looked very classy and also enough to stand out. Fabric itself has mild glittering effect also. I matched with thin purple colored belt and clutch. I wish I could keep this dress..... But I'm going to rent it again!

Perfect full skirt lace dress!
LOVE this dress. The lace is gorgeous and in this full skirt style it is beyond cute! Such an easy fit as well, comfortable up top and roomy on the bottom. Perfect for pear girls! Definitely wearing to my next holiday party.

Pretty dress.
The dress was pretty, but ran large on me so I added a belt to bring in the waist a bit. Also the underlining fell a bit long on one side no amount of tugging and pulling could fix it. Once I left the house I forgot about it, but still a bit annoying.

Adorable dress, lots of compliments!!
The fabric is beatiful. Very shimmery. I added a small patent bow belt and black tights since it was for an outdoor wedding in December. I'm 5'7" and felt it was borderline too short for a wedding. (I do tend to dress conservatively though.) Great dress, would definitely recommend!

Super cute dress, loved the key hole detail on back.
The size 12 was a little big and the size 10 was a little tight, so I went with the larger. I loved this dress. It was perfect for a New Year's Eve event.

Beautiful dress!
I loved the full skirt of this dress. The bodice is tight, so it is very flattering. Great for dancing too! I wore with gold accessories since the underlay has more of a gold tint to it.

Nice dress overall
The size 6 was a bit large up top and around the waist. The gold lining also hung down beneath the black in some places and looked odd. The 4 fit well up top and around the waist and did not have any issues with the gold lining. I received several compliments on the dress.

Perfect dress for a formal to remember!
I wore this dress to my boyfriend's fraternity's formal on a riverboat in New Orleans. The dress flattered my figure so well--great for hiding a little extra weight around your butt/thighs, but emphasizing a small waist. As a plus, it moved gorgeously when we were dancing--I couldn't stop twirling around the dance floor! The only bad thing I can say is how sad I was to send it back. This was a great experience and I'll DEFINITELY be renting again soon.

I want to own it!
So I actually ordered the 4, but they accidentally sent me the 2. I was able to get it on and wear it, but it was SO tight around my mid section. I was uncomfortable all night, but it was so cute I had to wear it and I didn't have time to swap it for the right size. I think the 4, what I ordered, would have been perfect. I added a gold sparkly belt and wore tan/nude shoes. I wore it to a rehearsal dinner. I loved it so much I really would like to buy it. I was bummed about the size mix up, but RTR made it right. Will definitely rent again!

Super classy, but still fun!
Wore this to a work gala and I felt great! The 4 fit better in the waist, but was too short to be appropriate. The 6 was a touch big, but length was a lot longer. I loved the key hole back too!

Snug on top but comfortable for a B/C cup, flattering skirt and fun for dancing. I was worried about a strong breeze lifting the skirt but it didn't happen to me. I would rent this again.

Gorgeous Dress!!!!!
I wound up returning this dress and exchanging it for another because it was too tight on top. It is a gorgeous dress though and I only wish that they had the Size 12. RTR's representative Meredith helped me with the return and the exchange for another dress without a hitch. This service ROCKS!!!!!

Perfect dress for an evening celebration!
I wore this dress to an event where my husband was receiving an award. I was very comfortable in the dress the whole night and the style was perfect for the occasion. I would definitely rent this dress again.

Not a flattering fit.
Rented this dress for a formal affair, luckily I had a backup size. It was not what I expected. The length is a little off and the shoulder area was a bit baggy. Luckily I had a back which was perfect.

Beautiful, but a little uncomfortable
This dress is beautiful in person - I got tons of compliments! It wasn't the most comfortable - the material is a bit scratchy and the boning digs in some, but worth it for just the one night!

Rented this for a promo photo shoot. I was going for a cute, but elegant vibe. This was perfect!
This style is perfect for my hourglass figure, though I did find this dress to be a tad too big in the waist. I think the next size down would have been a tad too tight in the bust though, and since it was for a photo shoot, we just clipped it in the back. I imagine, however, if I wore it to an event for a long period of time, I would have been grateful for the extra wiggle room (I never turn down dessert). The dress was comfortable, and I didn't notice any itchiness with the lace. Oh, and of course, the rental process was a breeze. Thanks, RTR!

Awesome detail to this dress
This dress fit me perfectly & I really liked the way the gold underliner kind of poked out at the bottom. You don't see that in the pictures online, but it definitely was the case with mine. The lace looked really good - not worn at all.

A classic, glam, lace dress perfect for a formal wedding!
This dress was perfect for the fall wedding I attended. The cap sleeves, and illusion lace neckline gave it the vintage glam feel I was going for with a touch of sexy! I paired the dress with Oscar de la Renta's Classic Crystal Earrings which added a extra WOW! The dress runs true to size, and was a very comfortable fit for my pear shape. I wore a strapless bra, but I think it is was also possible to go bra-less because of the inner bodice. I would definitely recommend this dress to other renters!

Did not end up wearing this dress.
I ordered two RTR dresses to try for a work Gala, and this dress just didn't fit right. I have narrow shoulders and the cap sleeves puckered and slumped, plus the waist was a little too high. It was a nice dress, but not for me.

I loved this dress and the rent the runway experience!
The dress ran a little big on me and it was short but Im 5'9. I loved the dress overall though, the fabric was beautiful and I felt beautiful in it! If I knew how short it was I would have worn stalkings with it for the wedding that I attended.

formal dress, flattering fit!
Really cute dress that I wore for a retirement dinner. Very flattering fit around the hips/waist. In retrospect, I would have worn this dress without a bra, even though I am pretty busty - the dress has boning that would have provided support, and probably would have been more comfortable! Other than that, no issues. Really pleased with my RTR experience.

This dress is beyond cute!
Yet another positive experience with RTR! The dress fits very well and I just love the back of the dress. It's cute in the front, a little sexy in the back. Pair it with any great pair of heels for a classy timeless look. I wore nude heels and added a chunky neckless to complete my look for the evening! #fabulous

Striking yet classic dress! Gorgeous fit.
This is the way to make an entrance! Fit like a glove. I loved the boning, made my waist look small. Gorgeous lace with just the right amount of shimmer. Such a high-quality garment. Comfortable despite zero stretch. Got tons compliments all night. I really loved it!
