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!

This dress is an A+. Elegant, flattering and comfortable.

I am a consistent size 4, 5'6", 34B. I wore the 2R with no foundation garments. The length was perfect with a 2-inch heel. I wish all ball gowns were as easy to wear.

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.

Absolutely perfect and surprisingly comfortable.

I wore this to a gala 3 months pregnant. I went up a size but the bodice is so forgiving and there is enough stretch that you have a lot of room for error on the sizing. Compliments all night.

Really pretty and super comfy. Great sparkle and not at all heavy.

I ended up having to wear the 18R instead of the 16R because the 16 was cut WAY too short. I am only 5'2 and the 16 was several inches higher than my ankles and couldn't even be worn with flats. The 18R was a little big but I had to wear it to get a length that would work. Still a great dress; very comfortable and could easily dance it it. I got tons of compliments.

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.

Beautiful dress that definitely runs large!

I loved this dress as it was very flattering but it ran extremely large. I can fit in to plus sized dresses with the size of my bust (38DDD) but I wore a TEN - A TEN, PEOPLE. I'm pretty short (5"3) and the regular was perfect on me with small heels. Also, if you do plan on dancing a ton in this dress, be prepared for some sequin chaffing of your arms.

Cute but a few minor issues.

I usually wear a 16 but rented a 14 since everyone said it ran large. I was able to wear the 14 but the 16 would likely look better as the dress is supposed to "flow". It is indeed short which I like because I'm short and I don't like dresses to drag the ground; but be warned it is SHORT, so that's another reason to consider the size you get. The size where it zips is strange b/c the sequins don't connect there - its just an open gap. I think if I had a larger size this would be less noticeable.

Beautiful navy color and flattering cut!

Unfortunately this dress wasn't a wow for me. I'm 6 foot and the long was not available in my size, so I got the regular. It was noticeably short on me, hitting 3 inches above the ground. If you're a tall girl, make sure you get the long. Also, you can't wear a bra with this dress, so busty girls might want to stay away. Overall, very flattering fit.

Fun dress for a formal event

This was my second option that I did not end up wearing but it was a great. dress. The sequence were not bothersome but the fit was definitely large. I would size down at least one size for this dress. The length on the "long" was just right with 3" heels.

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.

Gorgeous color, runs large

This was my backup dress - I ended up not wearing it, but it was definitely a good backup. The color is GORGEOUS, and as others stated, it runs large. (I usually wear a 12 and was perfectly comfortable in the 10R I received.) I really just ended up not wearing it because the top felt a little skimpy for a formal affair/my fat arms. Ha. Note that the sequin overlay on top of the zipper has snaps, a fact which managed to escape my attention for some time, leaving me to wonder why the side was pooching out and how to make it stop. Just find the snaps. Hope this helps!

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!

Great Fit! Great Sparkle!

I loved this dress! I am a full figure, I wear a size 16-18, 210 Lbs and a 42DD bra. This dress was actually a little larger than I was expecting! I was able to wear the smaller size! It fit great, was comfortable & the sparkle was lovely. Bought this for a wedding my husband and I sang at and it looked so beautiful under the lights. I will say that if you are over 5' 4" or 5' 5" to go with the Long option on this one. I am 5' 4" and it was the perfect length for me,

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 classy - order a size or two down.

This was a back up dress I didn't wear. I ordered a size 8, my regular size, which was way too large both in the top and the hips. I will order this for a future event in a smaller size. This dress is very flattering and slimming for someone who may be self conscious about wearing tight fitting gowns around their tummy, hips or legs.

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!

Perfect for NYE

I wore this to a New Year's Eve wedding and it was perfect for the occasion! Take enough for the ceremony, but sparkly enough for midnight. I'm 5'7ish and got the long and it was a little on the short side with 2-inch heels. It was the perfect length when I ditched the heels for dancing though. I did have to tie up the straps together in the back to make it more of a halter (which looked great from behind) to keep the girls from falling out as it was very low cut and loose up top. I could've easily worn the size down but with it being right after the holiday munchies I was feeling self-conscious about the pooch. Overall, I got a ton of compliments and felt comfortable!

Definitely runs big, but beautiful

Like other people have said in their reviews, this dress runs large and short. I'm normally a 2 or a 4, and the 2 was still roomy, and I'm 5'5'' and with 2 1/2 inch heals the 2L was just skimming the floor. Definitely arm yourself with some safety pins to adjust the straps if you're smaller chested. It took a few tries but once I figured out how to pin it so the safety pins didn't show, the straps were the right length for me. Overall, great dress and I would rent it again.
