Free bar and sushi. Also getting to see Jessica Lange in person haha
This dress was everything I hoped it would be. It was comfortable and flattering and it has pockets! It doesn't get much better than that! I'm 5'6" and 150 and the 8r fit really well with 2 in. heels.

Moulin Rouge Themed Event
This dress was for a Moulin Rouge themed event. It was perfect for the theme. The fit was great, just had to pin the bust a little bit. Dress was a little bit long but I had just the right shoes to wear. I would highly recommend this dress.

Gorgeous ball gown
The wedding I attended was a black tie and this dress was perfect. It has pockets!!! The dress is true to size. Gives you a smaller looking waist line and perfect flare. It has enough poof but not too much to make you feel uncomfortable. Its best to wear heels of you are short like me... But I wore flats because I had my baby with me. I received so many compliments on this dress. I did have a wardrobe malfunction... The zipper is veryyyyyy difficult to zip & it ended up busting open on me. I had to get sewn into the dress. Size wasn't the issue either. Had I ordered the free back up size, it would've been too big. Overall I love this dress.. But beware of the zipper.

I can't imagine a body type that this dress wouldn't flatter!
This dress is truly awesome! The fit: It certainly is snug around the rig cage. It was an adventure getting it to zip up, but once I was in it, it was quite comfortable! I wasn't tugging at anything through the night, I just felt put together at all times. The length: I wore very short wedge heels (about 1.5 inches) and the dress was dragging a bit on the ground. I'm 5'4" and would have probably needed a 3 inch heel for it to not drag. But despite that it was a bit long, I still think it looked good! The pockets: Come on now. Is there anything better than a dress with pockets??? The design/color: This dress is just a stand-out. No one had anything like it on, and I got compliments all night. I really felt incredible in this dress!

Dazzling!
I felt so beautiful in this dress. The fit of the bodice was perfect for me (athletic build, smaller bust) and I *loved* the pockets. Even the 2R was a bit too long (I'm 5'4 and wore 3 inch heels) so shorter girls should definitely make a note of that. Nonetheless, I loved this dress and received so many compliments!

So many compliments!!!
I had so many compliments on this dress throughout the evening and it really did look wonderful in photos. A few comments I have for the reason it does get 5 stars... I ordered a 6 and an 8. I ended up wearing the 8 which was actually a little big however, the 6 wouldn't zip over my rib cage right below the bust which is such an awkward place for it to be too tight. Also, the dress was a little long. I'm 5'5' and wore 3 inch heels and it still dragged on the ground a little however, I would rather that than it be too short. Also, like with most RTR gowns, the pictures seem to always make the dress look more expensive than it shows up looking. This dress has a seam down the front middle (which I hate because I think it looks cheap) and it also didn't hug around my waist and puff out as much as it appears to do in the model photo. Also to note, if you wear anything below a D Cup, this dress will probably not be the best option for you. I'm a DD and still had room with a bra on. For reference, 5'5', 150 lbs. overall though, I felt glam for my work gala!

Dress fit well, looked great, and felt comfortable!
Although it was tough to zip up (my friend used candle wax to smooth out the zipper), once it was on, it was comfortable, stylish, and perfect for a black tie gala. Received so many compliments. Highly recommend it!

I wore this dress to an award ceremony.
This dress was a little hard to zip up. Usually I wear an 8 but I fit in the 6 better. The pockets were very handy! This dress was light and comfortable, and garnered many compliments. I had originally requested the blue and black, but got the red and black sent to me (my second choice).

Cinderella!
This dress was beautiful and made me feel like a princess! The waist probably could have been a little tighter on me but that ended up being okay. I'm 5'4" and the 2R ended up being a pretty perfect length. This was easy to dance in too. There were 3 other women wearing this dress at the event I was at so that was kind of awkward. It's a popular dress for a reason though!

POCKETS
Beautiful dress. Fit well on top, but those with a larger bust than mine (34B) may struggle. Zipper was definitely a struggle, but not the worst I've dealt with by far. Very warm on the dance floor, but it would be perfect for fall/winter. Pockets were bigger than I expected! I could fit my spread hand and a few inches above my wrist! If you're taller, definitely get a longer size. I am 5'9.5" and I'm converse and this dress dragged about a half inch or so on the ground. I was so sad when I had to return it!!

Wore this gown for a formal wedding in DC! Got lots of compliments and was so comfortable the entire night. This does run small in the rib cage/bust so I'm glad I got the bigger size!

I thought this dress was beautiful. The only down side was the hem. I ordered late and all they had left in my size was a long. Hem tape didn't work with the fabric. I would totally recommend this dress because of the amazing fit and design. Just order the right length.

Loved the pockets! I could keep my phone close for pictures without having to carry it around
This was a good fit for me because I have a small back/chest and a curvy bottom. The top part of the dress fit me snug down to my waist (which was very sliming) and then the skirt flared out. It was very flattering.

I loved this dress!!! I received so many compliments, felt like a star! Didn't want to take it off!
The side zipper was really tough: took my boyfriend and BFF to get it zipped. I'm large-busted though, so that could have been part of it. But we were determined! It was such a comfortable dress once I was in it, though. Pockets! It has pockets! I wore a convertible bra that allowed me to wear one strap (again, I'm very busty, so I need a bra.) If I weren't so large-chested, the 14 might have been too big on top. I'm a 38G. You may need to size down, because it fit perfectly everywhere else. I really, really loved this dress. My only problem was that the bag the dresses came in smelled bad, and I needed to air out the dresses before I could wear them. That bag needs to be retired!

Loved this dress!
The fit was good, I'm 5'8 and 135 pounds but pear shaped, so the 2L fit much better than the 4L I also tried. The length was perfect with small heels. I got several compliments, and loved the dress! The pockets were amazing too...

Black tie wow!
Rented this dress along with another for a black tie wedding. This was actually my backup, but it fit so well and was so comfortable it won out. It was a hit! Who doesn't love compliments from friends and strangers alike! Thought I would need a long based on other reviews, but turns out the regular was perfect with 2.5" heels.

A charitable event that gave our Foundation a lovely scholarship for our Nursing program.
I think the size 4 regular had some issue with the zipper- it was on the opposite side of the dress(The shoulder side) and it was awkward to zip. Also, not even close in size. The dress is very pretty and photographs well.

I wore this to a gala and every person I walked by complimented me on my dress. Both men and women! The dress was beautiful but just a tad long - I'm short 5,3". I wore 3 inch heels and could get by on the length.

The dress fit perfect. If I owned it I would have had it hemmed up a little, but it worked (I am 5'4"). The whole process of delivery and return was seamless - no pun intended. :)

This dress fit great! I'm a 38DD and weigh about 155lbs; a size 10 fit great. The dress was a bit long for my 5'4 frame - decided to wear 3-inch heels and this made the dress flow so well! Highly recommend! Oh, and there are POCKETS!

Made me feel like a princess at my senior prom.
This dress is tight at the rib cage then flares out giving me the feel that I have a princess dress on. As for cons, I was aware of the tricky zipper thanks to the reviews from other renters. I had to have one person bring the zipper together while the other person zips it. But once zipped it was beautiful! It even photographs beautifully. This was my first time renting from RTR and I can totally see myself renting again.

Gorgeous gown!
I rented this for a wedding and it's one of my favorite rentals. I got tons of compliments on it, and it was a dress that definitely stood out from the crowd. And it has POCKETS!!! For reference, I'm 5'1", size 8-10 in regular dresses but 10-12 in formal ones. I ordered 12 and 14 in this, only because I have rented other gowns and found that most of them do not have much give (I am busty). The size 12 fit me and the 14 was a little loose. I went with the larger size, only because I was going to be in the dress for a long period of time and wanted to be able to move. I had to keep pulling the side of the dress up. A strapless bra is definitely needed, as are at least 3" heels if you're short like me. Mine were almost 4" and the dress still dragged. Another thing to note: the zipper on the size 12 was on the right, making it easier to step into the dress, and the zipper on the size 14 was on the left so I had to put the dress over my head to get into it. I'm not sure if it's because of the size. The zipper was a little tricky too. Overall, a wonderful rental and highly recommended. The bride whose wedding I wore this to is still gushing about the dress!

I was not able to wear the dress, unfortunately.
The dress is gorgeous and well-constructed. The style, however, was very unflattering on me. It made me look much larger than I am. The dress was so tight in the ribcage that I would have been too uncomfortable for an evening out

I love this dress! It was striking & elegant, but also very comfortable. Perfect!
Overall, this dress fit great. I'm 5'2 & it was a little long, but easy to gather up if needed. I definitely needed someone to help wrestle the zipper up, but once it was on, it fit perfectly & was very comfortable. I loved the pockets & didn't need a clutch, so that was nice!

I ordered this dress for my sister's wedding and it exceeded my expectations.
The dress fit very well and was true to size. I normally wear a size 8 and was slightly worried that it wouldn't fit (the 10 was out of stock), but I was pleasantly surprised.

Gorgeous Gown for Hot April Wedding in Florida.
I rented this dress for my cousins wedding. The dress was so much lighter than I thought. And I received tons of compliments about the beautiful gown. The pockets came in very handy. The few cons that I had with the dress were ; the length ( I'm 5'10) it recommended long length and I tripped a few times in the gown. And Secondly, the zipper is very difficult to work if you are blessed with a large bust. Very difficult! Other than that, I loved the dress and look forward to rented another item from RTR.

loved this dress! super classy
This dress was beautiful! Very classy. The only reason I gave it 4 stars was because the zipper was very tough. At one point I was worried I wouldn't be able to ever get out of it and needed assistance to get it up and down. Loved the pockets and received lots of compliments. The Long is LONG..I'm 5'7 and wore 4 inch heels and it still pooled at the bottom.
