Stunning Gown, but no room for movement

Rented this dress for a black tie banquet with a room full of architects, so I needed something that was unique. The picture was pretty true to the design, and I loved the pattern! The slit is very tasteful, and shows JUST enough leg! Since I assumed I was shorter than the model, I purchased pretty high heels to ensure that the dress wasn't dragging (about 3 1/2-4"), and had no issues walking. I received SO many compliments and even got a drink from one of the organization founders, and I felt like I really stood out in the room. The style notes suggested a red clutch, and I think it really tied the look together. Overall, the fit was OK, however, it allows for no stretching in the arm area. I have pretty broad shoulders and big arms for my size, so I had to go with the 6. Usually with my RTR dresses, I can go with the back up 4, but in order to cross my arms and be able to breathe, I went with my original size. While there was a tad bit of bunching around the waist, it was not noticeable and did not take away from the overall look. In the end, I loved this dress and felt so regal wearing it! I was bragging that I rented the dress and actually got it shipped directly to the hotel we were staying at (which was a big risk, but it worked out!). I was pretty nervous since there were no reviews yet, but I'm glad I took a risk and went with a totally different style.

So many compliments!

This might be my favorite dress I've rented! I felt amazing in this dress and got compliments all night. No bra needed. I am 5'10" and wore heels and the long was perfect. The only thing which is tolerable since the dress is beautiful is that you can't really lift your arms. The sleeves have no stretch to them at all

Classy and romantic

I rented this dress for a black tie gala, and it was show-stopping. I received many compliments, and it was more than I expected! It fit me a little big in the bust area, but not enough to be noticeable. Additionally, it was actually a floor-length gown, which is hard for me to find as a 6' tall woman! I'd suggest wearing a 2" heel or more if you rent the long and you're less than 6', because it will drag. Absolutely rent this dress, it is fabulous.

I wanted to love this dress....

This dress was my first choice for a formal wedding. However, when I put it on, I was disappointed. The waist fit fine, and the skirt and slit were pretty. The top which has all of the beautiful details was a strange fit. Some of the detail didn't lay correctly and I wasn't able to lift my hands over my head. I also didn't feel sexy at all, and felt very boxy. Probably just not a great dress for my body type. Pros were that even with a 36DD bust you would not need a bra, and definitely wouldn't need shape wear for this dress!

This dress was very beautiful but ran SUPER long. I’m 5’4 and wore 4 inch heels and it still dragged the floor. Other than that I really liked it. Must wear a strapless bra!

Great dress for a seductive vampire! I wore this beauty as part of my halloween costume.

This dress is unique for sure, and I got a lot of compliments. I'm 5'6" and the length was just a tad long with 2.5" heels, however i was also wearing a cape so that might have been part of the challenge. There isn't any stretch in the arms, which was a little bit annoying, but not a huge deal. This mostly felt like the right size but was a smidge snug at the waste line. I imagine the size 4 wouldn't have looked as good, but I would have wanted to try it. Overall this is a very cool dress but it would not be my first choice for a wedding or anything like that. Maybe for some kind of edgier event... or perfect for halloween!

LOVE LOVE LOVE this dress!

This dress is beautiful on and perfect for a fall or winter formal event. The detail on top makes it perfect for pictures. Arms are a bit constricting so I sized up one size and was happy with the overall fit.

The dress was PERFECT for a chilly fall, November wedding. SO many compliments.

The sleeves and top were not fitted but this was good because it allowed for movement and was comfortable and still looked awesome. High collars can sometimes do that weird thing in the back of the dress where it bunches and you look like you have a neck pocket but this collar was swoon worthy perfect. It's a great dress.

Ball night!

The dress was beautiful, I got a lot of compliments on the style! The arms are not flexible, which was expected because of the other reviews. I ended up going with my back up - the size up - because of the fit in the chest. If you are blessed in the chest area, I would go up a size!

Perfect dress for an October wedding by the water

This was a great dress for a fall wedding. I am normally a size 4 but am 15 weeks pregnant so sized up to 6 which fit my mini-bump perfectly (though it was definitely bigger on top). I'd rent your true size in this one. This dress was super flattering and I got compliments all night. I was worried the slit would be a bit risque for a conservative wedding but you barely noticed it unless you were sitting down. Would highly recommend!

I loved the slit and got to a of compliments!

The fit was a little small, but I was able to wear to waists higher than the model so it worked out. I'm also short, so wearing the dress higher (waist under my busy) allowed the length to just sit on the ground. The sleeves do not stretch so I could not raise my arms above my head. Overall I liked the dress.

This fit very well, I loved the dress! The slit went a little higher then I thought, but still loved it. I am 5'3 and needed very high heels to not be stepping all over the dress.

The process of renting is SO easy & customer service is always an A+

I loved this dress! It's style was modest, but I still felt amazing. The top doesn't have much give in it, that was my only down-side, but I'd definitely rent it again. I probably could have went with the 6S since I wore flats. However, it didn't drag all over the floor.

Unique

I absolutely loved this dress. It was different than anything I had ever worn. The top of the dress is beautiful. I received so many compliments throughout the night. I ordered the 4 and the 6. I ended up wearing the 4 because the top of the 6 was too loose for what I wanted it to look like. I could have used a half of an inch more in the waist area of the 4, but it I was still comfortable throughout the night, even after eating. I would recommend this dress.

Rude person who brought uninvited guests (I don't understand this question)

Nice dress, not spectacular. Waist is very tiny relative to the neck which was a little big. The sleeves were kind of an awkward length for me. Candidly, it's a little matronly, but the slit helped as did the cut-outs.

Rented this gown for a military conference. It was dressy with enough details

The fit was perfect. I’m 5’6 and 145 (athletic) The 6R was sold out for my date so I opted for the 6L. It was long without looking too long. I did receive compliments. The top is pefect if you need to wear a bra but is stiff so make sure to take that into consideration.

Danced for hours, felt beautiful!

I wore this to a wedding. I wanted a dress that was beautiful, yet modest and easy to dance in but not boring. This worked perfectly especially for my body type. The see through top with strapless lining was very pretty. The slit was high but only showed when I walked. I wore this with a strapless bra and regular underwear. This dress shows curves in the right places without being distracting. I paired it with a wine colored clutch, nails and lips. Pink earrings. I’m 5’9, 165 lbs and wore the 10R. I had on 3 inch heels and the hem hit a bit above the floor. The 10L would have been dragging. I would definitely recommend this. I got lots and lots of compliments!

Not one bad thing to say about this dress. I'm 5'4 and the length was fine. Arms were not too tight. Got so many compliments from family members and friends! It's a conservative but classy dress. Would definitely recommend.

Black tie winter wedding

Received many compliments. Was extremely comfortable for dinner and dancing. Felt elegant and fit true to size. I wore flats so I could dance all night and was perfect for my 5'9" height!!! But if you want heels definitely get the tall!

This dressing was amazing and perfect for a winter wedding in Michigan. I received compliments all night long, including one that stated I had the best dress of the night. I would rent this dress again! That said it does run long so I had to wear my tallest heels.

So many compliments!

I wore this dress to a formal wedding and received several compliments. The event was on a cold November day in Texas so not freezing, but it did keep me comfortable for the outside ceremony. I am 5'2" and wore 3" heels, and the dress was still about 5" too long, but the slit helped to not step on it every step. Overall great dress! Even with the length issue, I would rent this dress again with hopefully more time before the event to put some hem tape on it.

Pictures don't do her justice!

I was in a bit of a pickle since I forgot I needed a dress for a wedding. Upon searching RTR, last minute, I came across this dress and figured it would do... wasn't 100% sure I was going to love it. As soon as I zipped this dress up I knew I made a great decision, ITS GORGGG!! I absolutely loved wearing this dress and I felt so glam. I am 3 months PP so I was looking for something that would be very forgiving yet would make me feel sexy and this dress did just that. I loved the detail of the lace and the slit in the leg was just the right height. This dress needs to be on your favorites list!

This dress was amazing!

I'm a 34DD and the 4L fit just snug enough that I was able to go bra less but could sill breath and be comfortable. Which is amazing for anybody who has bigger breast. Overall the dress fit perfectly. The only thing I wish I could change about the 4L is that even @ 5'7 in 3.5in pumps, I would bring the hem up 1in. I found myself holding up my dress when walking or going up stairs and sometimes people were stepping on it. That is all I would change about this. I received so many complements. Would totally just buy this dress if I could.

Classy, sexy and a little different

Fit: True to size but the waist is tight. There is zero elasticity or give with this fabric. Still, size down your backup size if you can. I wore my smaller size because the fit on the arms was so much better and the length of the 6R was perfect for me at 5'5 with 2 inch heels. The 8R was much longer and the sleeves too baggy. Comfort: Not itchy or hot - the slit and cutouts help. However as other reviewers have noted, you can't move your arms any higher than shoulder height. You'll need help getting zipped in or repinning hair. Quality: Great except that the cutout pattern was not symmetrical on the 8R. Not sure if it was just the dress I received but the 6 was perfect. Other: The nude bodice is thick enough that I didn't need a bra as a 34B. The bride came up to tell me that she had loved my dress and searched for something similar in white for their welcome party. Apparently, Kate Middleton has worn a white version that's almost an exact replica of this dress. So that's your proof this dress is classic and fashion-forward!

Perfect dress for a winter wedding!

This dress runs small, I would recommend going up one size. Being shorter, the regular was a bit long, but with some heels, you couldn't tell. The slit isn't too noticeable, until you start walking--dress has a great flow. This dress was super comfortable, and I received a ton of compliments. I would definitely recommend this dress! I would rent it again!
