The service!

I bought a different gown that just looked horrible on me but the very sweet RTR stylist sent me a list of styles available for next day shipping so I could get something I would look perfect in. She did an amazing job to say the least! Thank you Jesmeri!!! This dress is comfortable a little short for my liking I would go with long next time. I just didn't like how low the front would come down on occasion but overall I really enjoyed this dress

Glamorous and sexy but not the easiest to wear

I rented this gorgeous gown for a cousin's NYE formal wedding. The beading and the beautiful shape of the dress (a drapey, loose top with a slim waist and flattering, body-skimming long skirt) made it perfect for the event. It was modest enough to not feel too ostentatious (it was a family wedding) but also sexy. The color is gorgeous and the beading exquisite, and the deep midnight navy is gorgeous in a sea of women wearing black. I chose black satin shoes and silver accesories to complement the gem tone of the gown. The lines of the dress are so flattering and easy to wear, but I went a size down in this dress and honestly would have tried on two sizes down if I had ordered it. So definitely order deliberately small for your choice size and back up. Even still, the top was difficult to fill, and I'm a d-cup. The straps still slid down my shoulders and would have been better if pinned up at least an inch. I went with the long length which was perfect for me at 5' 6" and in medium height heels. Despite the beading, the dress didn't feel heavy, but it was pretty scratchy beneath the arm pits, especially because there is an excess of fabric there due to the blousy top. It was especially irritating while dancing. All in all, I felt glamorous in this gown and happy to have worn it, but I wouldn't rent it again and if I had known then what I know now (there were no reviews posted when I rented it), I may have chosen something else for this event.

Very tasteful fully sequined dress.

I thought I would need the 10, but the 8 was a better fit for the under dress. To be clear there's a slip dress and a sequin overdress. It's very stretchy and I felt comfortable. Wore it to a Gatsby New Years wedding.

Perfect dress to ring in the New Year with my husband.

The dress was very comfortable the whole evening whether we were sitting for dinner or dancing the night away. The was a little short for me but I am 6' and wore small silver kitten heels. There wasn't a big difference in the fit between the 2L and the 4L which made me think I could have even worn a 0L but the 2 or 4 worked fine too. The dress runs a little large so I would recommend going down a size.

Gorgeous, comfy dress!

I loved this dress. The material is surprisingly a bit stretchy, which was nice. It does run a bit large, especially in the bust area. I wear a 38D bra, and it was a tad baggy on me. But I normally wear an 18 in pants, and the 16L fit me in the torso/butt area perfectly (I have a very... round butt. Lol) I am 5'8 and the long length was just right for wearing flats. It may have been a little short for my height if I'd had on heels, but I hate heels so it worked out. The only real con of those dress is the straps. They fall down a lot since the top it loose fitting, so I ended up pinning them to be tighter. Other than that, the dress was perfect!

Service was perfect. Dress was great.

For my back up dress I did choose down one size after reading other reviews but I could have gone another size down. The straps were a bit long. I am happy I went with the long length- I am 5'7 wore wedges and it was perfect, any shorter would have been too short. Overall I was very happy with the service and the dress and I will continue to use RTR.

The complements!

The dress was amazing! It was exactly what I needed for a night out on the town! I did not even have to wear heels which was awesome! I also have a rather large chest (38jj) so the fabric was great because that turns into my problem area. I got so many complements that night it will be hard for me not to buy this dress!

Mermaid Sequins!

This was sent as a second dress since one of my sizes was not available. I ended up going with this one because my other dress was too big. I ended up loving the shape of the dress and the way it looked in pictures. It fit true to size, except it was a little bit long on me which made it harder to walk. The sequins were a bit itchy, but they didn't bother me too much. Overall this dress was a nice choice for the Oscar party I went to.

Weird zipper and length

I rented this dress for my engagement photos. The side zipper didn't connect with the sequined top layers leaving a weird flap. Also, even though I am only 5'4" this dress only hit me at the ankles. Pretty fabric but a weird fit.

Sexy and sleek

I'm a curvy girl so it's hard to find a sleek dress that doesn't make me look pregnant lol. This dress is so flattering. The inner lining has a nice stretch to it making it comfortable to wear. Only complaint is that the straps were really long and non adjustable. I ended up having to safety pin them or the straps would have fallen down all night. Overall I received a lot of compliments and I felt good wearing it.

LONG STRAPS, have a trick up your sleeve to adjust

I wore this dress for a 1920's fundraiser (and took my own selfie in the bathroom). The dress was totally appropriate and mild, for the theme. I'm 5'6" and today 190lbs. Additionally, I'm probably rocking a size 14 dress. That being said, I sized down to a 12, and also a long (not that long ladies). I had plenty of room, and probably could go down to a 10. I wore 2.5" shoes and the dress barely grazed the ground. I'm not sure how truly tall women would do with this dress. My shape is very rectangular, and this dress wasn't particularly suited to flatter me. HOWEVER, I felt amazing in it! My only complaint is how darn loose the straps were. I messed with them all night. In short, order a long and size down 1-2.

Subtle Sparkle

This dress was great! As others have said, the straps were long, but as long as I kept decent posture, it wasn't a problem. The length was perfect with my 4" heels (as expected). The sequins are matte, which I didn't expect, but I loved. Also, there's a side zipper that gets very smartly concealed by snaps in the top portion of the sequin fabric. All in all, I felt very comfortable in this great dress, the bride was happy with it, and I would rent it again!

Pretty dress, odd sizing, TOO SHORT, but amazing customer service.

I am consistently an 8 (and have rented Slate and Willow size 8 before) but the dress just seemed to fit a little weird. I ordered a 6L and 8L per recommendations to size down. The 8L was at least four inches too short and tight in the waist. The 6L was almost long enough and fit better around the waist but I would have loved a little longer and a little more room. I think the 8L might have been mislabeled or altered by a prior renter. I called RTR and they were AMAZING, overnighting an 8L and 10L. Neither were long enough, but the 8 fit a little better so I wore that. Overall, impressed (as always!) by RTR but didn't love the dress and was disappointed in the length.

Great selections & easy process!

Overall i was pleased with the order as it worked perfectly for he black tie wedding I attended in November. The prior reviews were helpful, so I was sure to order up on size. The fit was good & flattering. The proportions of the dress were a little unusual. For instance, the straps were too long, but someone who had rented it before me had pinned them & it worked well for me. And I am 5'6", but the regular length was about 3 inches too short. If the long had been available I would have ordered & it would have been fine. I was comfortable all evening & got lots of compliments. The ordering, shipping, & return set up for RTR is so easy - I will definitely rent from them again!

Comfortable and eye catching!

I wore this dress to a Christmas party. The sequins are beautiful in person, but not as crazy sparkly as normal sequins. The muted shine was subtle and not over the top, exactly what I wanted. I selected the 14R and the 16L since those were the two available for my delivery date. The 14 fit well, but definitely was a bit shorter than I preferred and was a bit snug in my tummy area. I ended up wearing the 16L and was so comfortable all night! The only thing I would've changed are the straps. I had to pin them together with a safety pin in the back to keep them from falling down. Other than that, I loved the dress! Would definitely rent again and would absolutely recommend!

Awesome dress! Compliments all night :)

The dress was a little large in the back but overall fit very nicely. I'm 5'9' and was very happy that I got the long because otherwise it would have been too short. Also, I had to pin down the straps because they were way too long:

RTR was the perfect choice for this event. Will def. use again!

The fit and length was perfect for what I wanted. The straps were too long but I fixed that problem with 2 small safety pins. I love that they send two sizes. The original size I chose (2 reg) ended up being way too big so my backup size (0 reg) was what I wore. Being only 5'1 I was afraid the regular length would be too long (petite length was not available for my event date) but with 2 inch heels it was the perfect length. I'm actually barefoot in the full length picture w

Loved this dress!! Definitely would rent again!

Absolutely loved this dress! I wore a 6R, but the dress runs large and probably could have worn a 4. The straps on the dress were long, but they could have easily been pinned to make them shorter. (I didn't do that because I was afraid it would damage the dress, but I'm sure it could have been done.) The only other thing is I would be to order a long if you want to wear tall heels... I'm 5'4" and my heels may have been 2.5 inches and you could see my shoes under the dress. Overall, the dress was very comfortable and fun - lots of compliments on the dress! I would definitely recommend this dress and RTR! First experience with RTR and this won't be my last!!

So perfect for prom!!

I rented this dress for a last minute prom and I could not have been happier. I was initially going to wear the 8L, but the sparkles were faded and and it didn't seem any larger (I think it's been through dry-cleaning too many times). The straps on the dress were very long, but all it took was a couple of safety pins. I would not have gone any shorter in length because the L grazed the ground when I wore heals. The 6L was still a great fit and I got so many compliments throughout the night!

Great dress but it does run a little big.... I am 5'9 and ordered a long and it stopped at my ankles. I made it work though. It was noticeable that the straps were worn- they kept falling down.

Beautiful but way too big

It was very big on me, I had to safety pin several areas of the dress to stay up on me. I ended up getting them to overnight me a 16 which is what I'm wearing in the picture and it was still too big. It's huge in the chest area. I am tall so I ordered up a size because they were it of long!

Work gala winner!

I loved this dress (and so did everyone else!) It was just the right balance of glitz and glam without being way over the top. The sequins are matte but they shimmer just enough in the light. The 10 was just the right length for me (I'm 5' 3") and was just loose enough in the body to be comfortable and wasn't feeling like I was going to explode out of it. I was getting compliments on this dress all night and felt fabulous! There were a few cons. The straps on this are WAY too long and WAY too flimsy. I definitely had to use safety pins to shorten them and I was freaking out all night that one of the straps were going to snap because they were so thin. I rented the 12R as my back up and let's just say the sizing between the 10 and the 12 is baffling. The 12 was HUGE everywhere, the straps were at least 4 inches longer, so at 5' 3", there was no way I could wear it because there was about 10 inches of dress at the bottom. The sequins do catch a bit on other fabrics so you should be careful with that. But I didn't have any issues or irritation under my arms from them so that's a plus! Despite the cons, it truly is a beautiful dress and would certainly rent it again!

Beautiful!

I rented this dress in an 8R and 10R. The 8R was actually more stretched out and loose than the 10 was. I wore this to an outdoors wedding in upstate NY and loved it! This was actually my third choice as my first two options didn't end up working out but received lots of compliments. The regular length was perfect for my 5'2 height with some mid level chunky heels.

Gorgeous but not comfortable

Dress fit well and although it was sequined it didn't give me that weird low-belly pooch that a lot of all-sequin dresses do. Decided to not wear a bra with it even though the sticky boobs looked ok. It ended up being so hot at the event I would have regretted wearing the sticky boobs anyway. Dress straps were SO LONG I had to safety pin them shorter-- and it looked liked someone had tried to sew them shorter from a previous use. Sequins are also obviously not soft or comfy when rubbed up against, my arms chafed a little. Also if it's hot out, don't wear this. No breathability. Overall cute but wouldn't rent again. Wasn't in love.

Beautiful dress and a great fit (with some tweaking)

I rented both the 0R and 2R after looking at reviews and seeing that the sizes ran large. I was a little surprised how snug and without give the middle was. I am currently a bit larger around the middle becuase I am only 3 weeks post-partum, but with some parts of the dress running so big, I expected the middle to also be a bit bigger. It was a bit snug for me, but not uncomfortable. The straps were super long so I had to pin them back, which was fine. The sequins were beautiful and there wasn't any wear on the sequins or stitching. The length was perfect for me, I am 5'2" and I wore shorter heels. This dress was great for our event and made me feel beautiful and comfortable, even at a few weeks post-partum!

Shoulder straps are large..be prepared with pins

The dress is very pretty, but the fit on the top was all wrong. The shoulder straps were so long and would not stay up. The back of the dress was very loss and could not be worn with a strapless bra unless it was all pinned together. If you are willing to pin it or are comfortable without a bra this dress might work well for you.

Long straps?!

I wanted to love this dress as it was my first choice for prom, fortunately I rented another dress as backup. The problem with this dress is that the straps are unusually long. If I was stuck with this dress I could have simply pinned the straps together to make it stay up on my chest. The long straps made it look a bit awkward. I wish I took a picture in it but I did not because I ended up wearing another dress. I would advise that if you do rent this dress to be prepared to pin the long straps because otherwise it is a very beautiful dress. Oh, and also I would recommend sizing down. I am normally a 2 but a 0 fit me for this dress best.
