BEAUTIFUL

I have to say, it's WAY more beautiful in person and on than the main pics give it credit for. I love this dress, it's incredible. Endless compliments as usual. If you aren't doing Unlimited...you should!

Gorgeous embroidery made this dress the most unique I've ever worn.

The zip can be a little tricky with the embroidery. I had to try a few times to get it to zip. I'd recommend going a size up in your backup size.

Beautiful and perfect for spring wedding!

Fitted bodice and forgiving in the hips. Low, sheer back with exquisite embroidery all over. Received compliments ALL night long. Pictures do not do this dress justice. Would recommend tape to hold up inside bodice lining of dress as I had a few problems with it sliding down and possibly revealing too much of "the girls". Be careful not to wear jewelry that may snag the dress. I had a rhinestone bracelet on that I ended up taking off since it caught the fabric twice - did not want to ruin such a gorgeous dress. Prepare for lots of compliments while wearing this!

Perfect Sunday Brunch dress

I wore this dress for a Mother's Day brunch. The details were beautiful and everyone kept stopping me to tell me what a great dress it was. The zipper was a little difficult at the seam but I was able to get it up. I used fashion tape to tape the top because it would come down and get a lot of cleavage going on. I wore a light pink bra which was similar in color to the dress but it is sheer from the waist line up. I'm around 5'5 and it was about tea length. Overall I would rent this dress again. It was unique and girly and I just loved it.

So many compliments in the unique embroidery !

I love this dress! The embroidery and layers of skirting make it so feminine and unique. My only complaint was it was super hard to get into ! The side zippy was very difficult to pull up because of its placement through all the heavy fabric. Also the attached camisole was pretty large and didn't sit will under such a snug bodice.

Stunning & elegant!

This dress is exquisite! The lace & colors are beautiful. There are few issues with the lining. The lining tends to wrinkle up under the lace & is very low cut in the chest area. You cannot wear a bra with this dress. Even with these minor issues, I would still highly recommend this dress.

Amazing dress

Great fit, great dress! Size 4R came with lots of snags in the embroidery, but due to the amount of details they were not extremely noticeable.

Details details details!

This dress is GORGEOUS! The flow, the details and everything about it. I had people stopping all day to me give compliments. I didn't have to wear undergarments. You might want to wear a NuBra if you need a little help but not necessary. Rent it, you will not regret it.

Beautiful embroidery

I had a girl walk up to me and gasp as she thought the dress was so beautiful. Literally gasp! I wore it with knee high black gladiators just like it walked the runway (search online) and the juxtaposition was outstanding. Super comfortable but you do need to pin the under layer or you see major cleavage or bra. I wore a nude strapless bra and it was unnoticeable (after pinning the front). Tape would work well also.

Perfect for vaca to France

I went to Burgundy in France with my fiancé, who had planned a few special dinners. This dress was very pretty and unusual. The size 4 fit perfectly. I loved wearing it.

Did not wear

This dress didn't arrive on time, so I couldn't wear it. I did try it on at home, and loved it. The size 4 fit perfectly. Be aware that this dress is 3/4 length. It is a lovely dress, and I would rent it again!

Gorgeous dress!

This dress has definitely been rented a few times but is in great shape and any missing threads in the embroidery are difficult to notice due to the pattern. Great for a warm day! Could be dressed up or down!

Beautiful and sweet

Just perfection. I adored this dress from the moment I zipped it up. It fit beautifully and the length was very flattering. The fitter top accentuated my waist while the flowy skirt was great for dancing and eating desert ;) gorgeous color as well. Can't say enough good things about this dress. I am on the smaller chested side and definitely needed a bra with this one.... Nude would work ok if you don't mind straps being visible up close, otherwise those chicken cutlet things would be good.

Stunning.

Hands down the best dress I have ever ordered. It was magical when I put it on. I couldn't wear a bra with this dress but I didn't need it. I received so many compliments I wish I owned it.

The most beautiful dress I've ever worn! I love love loved it! So unique and comfortable. I love the scoop neck back. I definitely wore spanks to keep everything trim throughout the night. Lots of complements at the wedding and from pictures. I will definitely rent this again in the future.

Beautiful dress and very flattering!

The dress does run slightly on the small side. I normally wear a 0, and the 2 fit well. I'm 5'5'', and wanted something to accentuate my waist without drawing too much attention to my bubble butt. This dress is a dream for pears and the back is especially flattering. 10/10 would rent this dress again.

Obsessed with this dress!

Where to begin; this dress was incredible! I'm usually a size 0 but the 2R fit perfectly. The only tiny, minor fit issue was that the attached slip would move around in the chest area from time to time so I'd have to be mindful that my bra wasn't showing. (I'm a 32C) Fashion tape would've been a quick fix. Other than that, the dress is beyond gorgeous with intricate details that make it unique. Nonstop compliments all night and continuing on through social media. Tip: don't over accessorize or wear shoes or carry a bag that detract from this beauty. This dress is truly a statement on its own!

Absolutely stunning dress!

I wore this dress to a bridal shower brunch. I received so many compliments! The skirt of the dress flows so nicely and the scoop back is a classy touch. The photos do not do this dress justice - the colors / pattern are really pretty ! I wish I could keep this dress !!

Favorite dress ever!

This dress was incredible - so comfortable and absolutely stunning. I've never received more compliments on a dress ever! The dress did show some signs of wear with some small places of the embroidery having been pulled in past wears. But it was negligible! There seemed to be a big difference between the 6 and 8 - the 8 had plenty of room but the 6 was really tight in the bust. Love love this dress!

Tight around the bust

Beautiful dress. Embroidery was exquisite. However, was tight around the bust and rib cage area. I could not zip it all the way through. I normally wear a size 4, and my bust is 32B. And this was very tight. Sad that it doesn't fit and had to return.

Gorgeous detail!

This dress is stunning in person - I rented it through my unlimited for my anniversary and ended up pairing it with a sweater b/c it was chilly. It had a slight pull in the skirt embroidery when it arrived, but it was not noticeable on. Lots of compliments and I felt great all day! Runs a little small; I typically wear a 0 and the 2 fit well.

Beautiful but it runs small & it's see-thru

What a gorgeous dress!!! I tried to wear on 2 occasions, even purchased spanx for the 1st time for this dress and it was a no go. The zipper on the side has no give, the sleeves are very tight on the shoulders so they're a bit suffocating because you can't lift your arms. The dress is very sheer and bras can be seen and undies too.

Definitely a statement maker! So many compliments!

Sleeves are a little restrictive if you have broad shoulders (like me) but not noticeable. Zipper is very tough to zip over the seam which is why you may want to size up one size. Also size up if you have wide hips because the layer underneath scrunched up on me every time I sat down/stood up! Once on, it's a complete stunner and will be sure to impress!

Beautiful details

It was a beautiful but the dress runs small. I usually wear a 0 or 2 but ended up going with the 4R. The zipper on the side is super hard to close. I struggled for about 15 minutes, almost gave up. Very flattering embroidery, understandable that it had some wear and tear but the smell of the dress was gross. I don't think it was washed properly, smelt like someone was dancing in it all night. I wore it for an hour and came back home to take it off. Beautiful besides the smell. I would rent it again it if was clean.

Magical!

This dress is pure magic, it elevated the wedding experience! So many compliments, but better yet, it made me feel so special. I'll agree with others that the dress arrived with a few snags in the embroidery (not noticeable when wearing), and that because it runs small, has a scoop neck and low-cut lining, you can't wear a bra. Not a problem though. Wearing this dress made me a RTR fan for life: I would not spend thousands of dollars for a one-time wear, but on this day I felt like a million bucks!

I didn't get to wear it because it was too small. I couldn't even zip it up. I am normally a 2-4

It is a gorgeous dress. I can't wait to have an occasion to rent again in my size. It is so pretty and the details are amazing. Definitely good for a daytime event or brunch with girlfriends.

Wonderful Dress!

I loved this dress! I received so many compliments on it at a wedding I attended. It does run small in the chest so I had to go up a size. I would recommend ordering your normal size and one size up for the backup. It's really is a one of a kind piece!

This dress is stunning! The details are feminine & unique, and the dress is beautifully flattering.

My favorite rental so far! I wish I could own this dress. It runs a little tight, and the zipper is a little finicky around the waistband. The low back makes wearing a bra a little difficult, so I would go without if you can. The dress itself is so perfect that accessories can be minimal. I got compliments left and right!

RTR Team Review

Rented this for a pink-themed picnic. The embroidery on this dress is absolutely insane, it's so unique and fun. Dress is a little snug in the waist and doesn't have any give, so size up. I have broad shoulders and hips and both were fine in this style.

absolutely gorgeous

This dress was sent to me as a backup since my original dress no longer had my back up size available. You know how you think, "why would anyone pay $3,000 for a purse when you can get a great purse for $300?" and then you get your hands on a Chanel bag and you all of a sudden understand what all the hype is about? This dress is the the Chanel bag of dresses. All dresses will be held up in comparison from now on. The embroidery is delicate and ladylike, and the fit is completely perfect. I'm usually a size 0, but ordered the 2 based on other reviews- it was perfect. I have a short torso, and sometimes dresses bunch weird at my waist- not this one. I would rent again and again!

At least 5 strangers from the street told me they loved my dress!

This it's really my style, but everyone else loves it! I was just walking around downtown Seattle and at least 5 people commented on the dress. One girl even yelled from her car (at a red light) to tell me how much she loved the dress! One negative thing about the dress is that the front lining is very very low cut. If worn normally, half of my bra would be showing; so I had to tape/pin the lining to my bra.

So obsessed - rented 2x in 2 weeks! Perfect for springtime.

Queued this in my Unlimited to wear to to work and then a Peking Opera preview - loved it so much, wore it *again* the following week for a gala benefit. (Normally, I wear dress once to party/event and once to office if not on same day). If you have unlimited, pull this for your spring events. It's a knockout. One small tip: it is very sheer - no bra and only spanx recommended.

Stunning

I wish I had someone take a photo!! This dress is beautiful. I received many compliments at the gala that I attended. Complete strangers taking the time to comment on it. I am usually a 4 on top but often a six on the bottom. The style of this dress if forgiving around the hips and thighs HOWEVER, there is a sheath underlay that is not so forgiving. I was able to wear the size 4 but the sheath did bunch up because it was a bit too tight. I could have considered the back up size that I received which was a 6. Unfortunately, it arrived in not very good condition. The embroidery seemed snagged in several places and the skirt didn't seem to lay correctly over the sheath. A bit disappointing considering the price. I am glad the size 4 worked. I do recommend this dress but I would proceed with caution due to the condition that the back up size arrived in.
