The dress is beautiful but...

Size worn: 2X
Overall fit: True to Size

The dress was beautiful, just as shown on the RTR website. Fabric and fit, very comfortable. Once on the dress fit like a glove, however I just didn't like the way if looked on me. There is no "forgiveness" in coverage for any problem areas, which on me, is my stomach. I f you are a "true" hourglass figure, this dress would look amazing on you!

This dress was not only comfortable it was beautiful however.....

Size worn: 3X
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
this dress dan big. I got the 3x and 2x however the 2x was to tigh over the arms and middle but the 3x was too big over my bust area. I got this dress last minute and should have worn spanx with it. It does cling in the middle and would look best if you had something on underneth to smooth all the areas. It was my first time renting and I got lots of compliments on the dress. RTR made ordering, sending it back and shipping very easy. Will recommend and rent from them again.

It was wonderful to share a special occasion with friends and look great at the same time!

I ordered this dress to wear to an evening wedding. The dress is simply beautiful, especially the lace sleeves. It is also very comfortable to wear! I received so many compliments I couldn't keep track. The only issue was that the top was a little big on me. I was sad to have to return it but I will definitely rent again!

I wore this to a baby shower and just loved how super comfortable this dress is. No wrinkles, no worry! The fit is very flattering (I think) if you have a full bust and derrière (and I do!). Appreciative with the length also - what can I say, I like that classic look. I received many compliments on this dress and the whole look (paired it with the Crystal Cluster Necklace by Badgley Mischka.

I absolutely loved this dress... I got so many compliments and felt amazing in it. To be honest I lost 10 lbs leading up to event so it was a little loose but no one else could really tell

Chose to wear the larger size for comfort however it was too big. Had to keep readjusting and covering bra. Love rent the run way and most likely will rent this one again.

I really liked this dress, but another one I had rented was more appropriate for the event. This one was very flattering and comfortable and I definitely want to rent this for another event! I love the sweetheart cut at the neckline. Very va-va-va-voom!

I wore this dress for my bridal shower and have never felt so beautiful! I absolutely loved the fit even though I had to wear the bigger of the two and I normally wear a 1X. It was elegant and just beyond words! I got so many compliments and am still getting them weeks later!

This wedding was at an upscale yacht club, and the dress was a perfect choice!

Size worn: 2X
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This was my first time using RTR. I was so pleased with every aspect, the dress fit perfectly. I found all the reviews to be the most beneficial part. I chose the 2X based on a review, and it was the perfect choice. I was worried that my expectations were too high, but they were actually exceeded.. This dress was SUPER comfortable and flattering. I got several compliments throughout the night. I was second guessing the longer sleeves, however, being on the water, the air was cool, and I was not forced to wear my husbands jacket. The only issue I had was that my bra straps(in the front) were showing a little, but I used a little double stick tape and it was perfect!

I got so many compliments on the color of this dress! I also looooved the lace. The dress is stretchy making it comfortable and forgiving. The length is great - hit right at the knee (I'm 5'4"). I'd definitely rent this one again.

I got a lot of compliments on the dress! Great Color and Fit!

Size worn: 2X
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I think it was an awesome dress! I didn't have to go with the bigger free size! It was conservative enough for the catholic church ceremony and comfortable and sexy enough for the reception! The sweetheart neckline DEF showed off just enough "assets" without looking trashy! The dress is form fitting in the stomach area and hugs the right curves so even some spanx can help a lot too! this was my very first time using rtr so i'll def be back! the whole process is quite simple!

Super comfy

Loved how comfortable this dress was. Sometimes I have a hard time with short dresses because my large size bottom makes them much shorter than they are intended to be! HOWEVER, this dress was a great length. My only complaint is that I found it to be a bit roomier than i like in the chest. Otherwise, perfect.

I wore this dress for our family holiday pictures.

Size worn: 1X
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
The fit was nice I ended up using the 1X since it was so clingy. The top was a little big on me (even though I'm a larger bust than usual right now.) I wish I brought double sided tape so I needed to keep adjusting. I had a shaper on to smooth out a bit.

The fit is good but very form fitting. Wear a spanx. I love RTR but wish they had more 3x dresses.

Very va-va-voom vintage!

Size worn: 2X
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Although I ultimately went with another dress for my event, this was a very close runner-up. It's a true indigo color, not navy or blue, and was very comfortable. I ordered the 2X, and felt it was true-to size. Loved the neckline, makes quite the impact, although I would recommend dress tape so as to avoid a wardrobe malfunction. For reference, my measurements are 48-41-52, and at 5'8', this dress hit me at mid-knee.

Nice Dress for the Right Body Type

I did not wear the dress. My advice would be to order your size and the next size up. Fashion tape for the neckline would have been needed to keep the upper bodice from showing my strapless bra. It is a beautiful dress. The color is gorgeous. I just felt awkward about the neckline, but others may like it better than me.

I was a chaperone for our school's Prom. I needed something age-appropriate, though!

Size worn: 1X
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I agonized over this dress. I really loved the photos of it, but it was only available in 1X. I am pear-shaped, and I was concerned that it would fit fine on top but look like a sausage casing on bottom. I was pleasantly surprised. With Spanx under it, it fit perfectly! It skimmed in all the right places and hid all the wrong places. I was also concerned that the lace sleeves might itch, but they didn't. The dress is stretchy and gives, so I was comfortable in it all night. The cleavage was reasonable for a Catholic school prom. (I'm a 40 C.) :) I got so many compliments from students and parents alike!

I went to a wedding.

Size worn: 1X
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I lost 70 ponds and was unsure of my size. The 14 fit but the 16 was perfect. Someone said I looked like a movie star! I had many compliments. This is a very pretty dress. I felt very beautiful and comfortable wearing this dress. The material is stretchy but not flimsy. It had nice body and moved with me in a fluid way. It came just above my knee and showed some cleavage. Very satisfied with every part of this experience. I didn't take any good pictures but next rental I will get a photo. I loved the dress, I loved the easy return. The dresses arrived on time. Rent the runway! You will not be diassapointed!!!!

Love love love it! Very comfy! Perfect fit! Highly recommend this dress.

Size worn: 0X
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I normally where a size 12 jeans, but I'm bigger on top because I'm busty and have a larger back and stomach, so I wear a 1X top or 14/16 top. I wore a 0X dress. The dress is stretch fabric. I have rather large arms on top, so when I saw the lace I was concerned. But he lace is also stretchy so I was presently surprised when nothing was pulling. I could cross my arms and it wasn't tight on my back. I thought it would be too short because I wasn't wearing stockings, but it didn't ride up at all. If you are larger on the bottom, it may ride up. Over all I was very happy. I'm very busty (40F) so there was some cleavage, but I'm ok with that. You could wear a bra with straps and it wasn't showing. I received many compliments on the dress and the color. Simple earrings and diamond drop necklace to not take away from he dress. I did put on a bracelet, but I took it off because it was pulling on the lace.

It was my son's wedding and I wanted to look beautiful for him.

Overall fit: True to Size

The dress fit perfectly, except that my bra straps were showing. My sister and I did a little adjusting of the bra and I was ready to go. Everyone told me how beautiful I looked and how much they loved the dress. I told them where to go the next time they needed an outfit for a special occasion. Hopefully, you will be receiving orders from some of my family and friends. I loved that dress.
