Classic and Fun

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Received the 8 and the 6 in this dress, both looked brand new. The 8 fit great. The waist is fitted and falls into a nice skirt. The lace on the upper body makes the dress really look more black, but in the right light you can see a hint of the underlayer, which is white- not silver. Love the pockets on this dress as they fit right into the skirt and do not give the bunchy illusion as some dresses with pockets. You can wear a regular bra with this, even though the back is a V back, it drops just above your strap line. The dress also has strap snaps on the shoulders if you are worried about slippage. The only thing i would tell you is be mindful of ordering the correct size. Too large and the lace uptop will not lay flat. Too small and you will never get it zipped past the waist. Overall, i didnt want to send it back: hope it goes up for sale soon because I loved it and so did our entire family.

The dress was perfect! Loved the fit and the flare

Size worn: 14
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Loved that it fit over my chest and the lace was perfect to cover the cleavage (I am a 34F). The flare at the bottom was a great touch and the length was a little long (hit just below my knees) but I am also only 5'2. Highly recommend! I got so many compliments :)

Modern twist on a classic dress

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I rented this dress for a gala I attended with my boyfriend and his colleagues. This is a gorgeous dress, the details are very lovely and an added bonus is that it has pockets! The dress is a bit of a heavier material, which makes this perfect for fall or winter. The size 8 fit me perfectly, but as I have a larger chest, I opted to wear the 10 so women with larger chests should probably size up. I also opted for a red clutch to give the look that pop of color. I only have 2 warnings about the dress. The first is that while you can wear a regular bra with it, that bra must be solid black (i.e. don't wear anything with a pattern or different color) and it must be a demi bra given the cut of the dress (the lace of course adds some coverage but obviously you can see through). The second is that the dress does not have those handy little straps under the shoulders, where you can take the little piece of fabric and hook your bra strap to the dress so people cannot see your bra straps. I was having to readjust my bra straps under the dress constantly. It was the one thing missing from the dress! Otherwise, fantastic dress, yet another RTR success!

So many compliments for an amazing dress!

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wore this dress to a rehearsal dinner, and it was a big hit. It's a little snug in the chest, and you can see that the bodice rode up a bit on my torso. The zipper was a nightmare to get up, and I had to have someone else help me. But the struggle was well worth it! Best part of all: the dress has pockets! I could put my husband's entire wallet, and the fabric was weight down at all. As other reviewers said, this dress is NOT silver but white. It looks silver because of the lighting and flash photography. I would definitely rent this again, and I was very sad to send it away.

Stand out dress

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Beautiful dress....perfect for a cocktail attire wedding, if not a bit fancier. The top is black lace, but the flash from photos makes the white underneath come through more than it does in person. The pockets were amazing and could hold a lot since the bottom was so large. Bottom of the dress was a bit too "poofy"....looks awesome standing, but makes it a bit difficult to sit and you have to remember the re-arrange the tulle underneath after visiting the ladies room or there could be a fashion disaster. Overall....loved it and would rent again. I wore the 8 because the 6 was a bit tight in the chest area and I wanted to be comfortable.

Beautiful dress!! Ran too small though.

Size worn: NONE
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
Was a wonderful dress, I was sad that it ran so small in the busy. Make sure you order at least a size or two up. RTR was easy and wonderful to deal with and return the dress. Luckily I has a backup.

Complimented all night long...

Size worn: 14
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was a total hit. Fit my frame perfectly - brought out my true waist and minimized my hips. It was a huge high-class gala that I was working so I needed to be dressed for the occasion but be comfortable enough to run around - this MORE than fit the bill. If there was one thing to note about the fit, it would be that the top lace was a bit loose and not completely flush to my body. I'm pretty busty so I was surprised. It wasn't really that big of a deal though - no one seemed to notice but me. Overall, I loved it and was a tad teary when I sent it back. I will definitely be renting it again.

Love this dress!

Overall fit: True to Size

I loved wearing this dress. Super comfy (and it has pockets!) and I got SO many compliments. Literally, a red carpet reporter covering the event pulled me aside to tell me how great this dress was. I usually wear either a 4 or a 6, and the 4 fit me very nicely. Absolute stunner!

A gorgeous dress and perfect for those without a "flat belly".

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
The pros - can be worn with a regular bra, and side pockets are quite nice. The cons - it does run small, so I did I have to go up to sizes.

I wore this to our company holiday party. Lots of compliments on the dress.

This is a beautiful dress for a holiday party. It fit me perfectly; the 8 would have been too snug. It's a bit low cut in front, but the lace adds a modest touch. I loved the length and the pockets are a bonus! I would definitely rent this again.

This dress looked amazing and hid the flaws of a pear shape

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This dress was awesome! I'm 5'3 and it came down to the lower part of my knee. While the lace covers the cleavage, I would have felt it a bit risque for some family situations.

Great party dress

Size worn: 14
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I rented this for New Year's Eve and it was a very nice dress. It fit great everywear except right around the rib cage (too tight) and was extremely difficult to zip up over the fabric creases at the waist. I wore it for a few hours but had to take it off early because the rib cage was uncomfortably tight. I wish I could have worn it longer because it was super cute!

Great for dancing. Felt showy but also covered up. Fits true to size but small in bust.

Size worn: 14
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wore the 14 even though the 12 also zipped and fit. My 38D chest seemed like it fit better in the 14 and fell more where the natural bust-line was supposed to be. Women with large large busts should size up. I loved that it showed off some cleavage while still feeling covered up with the lace. I was able to wear a normal black bra. Be careful when you stand up, as the under-tulle skirt may need to be laid flat. The skirt is "poofy." I am 5'8" so this fell just above the knee. I loved how it hid my tummy since the waist sits very flatteringly above it. The zipper is a bit sticky.

The dress was great, I got a lot of compliments!

Size worn: 8
Rented for: Party
I would say that this dress ran a little bit small, it is very fitted around the waist. I wore the bigger size that was sent. All in all it was a great dress, very comfortable and looks great on.

Very good quality, ready to wear right out of the box.

Size worn: 10
Rented for: Wedding
Fit is very small, so please size up, maybe even by two sizes. Very pretty dress, of very good quality, but it was hard getting it zipped up, even when I sized up. My husband thought I looked very good.

Loved this dress... Perfect dress for the event!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress for a formal wedding and received multiple compliments on it. It arrived in great condition and fit true to size. I rented the smallest size that RTR owned, a size 2, but actually could have used a size 0...but, made it work. I am petite with narrow shoulders, so I fluctuate between size 0/2. I wore a strapless demi bra though you could get away with straps as well. The pockets are a hidden bonus! I like the puffy bottom as I felt it added some formality for the event. I would definitely rent it again!
