The dress was PERFECT for my rehearsal dinner- Comfortable and easy!
I had been eyeing this dress for a while on RTR and thought it would be awesome for my rehearsal and it lived up to all of my expectations! It was great when I paired it with black tights, booties and a little black belt- comfortable, gave a little room where needed, but VERY true to size. Perfect for a great night and as per usual RTR comes through with another winner!

First Rental and it was Great
I rented this for valentine's day with my now husband (then fiancé). I adored this dress. It fit well and it was very flattering. It was my first experience with RTR and kept me coming back.

Beautiful and sophisticated
Loved this dress!! Tons of compliments. Perfect to stand out in a sea of LBDs but not obnoxious. If you plan on lifting your arms a lot I would rethink this dress though, it doesn't leave much room for arm movement. Very true to size. I'm 5'2 and the length was about an inch above my knee. Very sophisticated but the shorter length kept it youthful and sexy as well. Very happy!

Ended up not wearing the dress because I din't like the fit.
Material was not as structured as I had hoped it would be. The dress was shorter than expected. The dress was not flattering on.

I did not receive the dress on time.
There was a snow storm and my dress did not arrive until two days after the New Year's Eve party I was attending. RTR refunded my purchase.

I loved this dress but was unable to wear it because they didn't have the next size up. The sleeves pull and it is a bit fitted. Def recommend getting a size up.

Beautiful dress. Photographs well.
It should be noted that the lace is part of the print not an overlay. The color is also a light lilac purple not gray. It was a very pretty dress and I would wear it again.

I wore this for a fundraiser at my sons' school- I got compliments on the dress all night!
The fit was a little big- I am typically a 4 and the 2 was snug but more flattering.

Great holiday dress attire
Wore this to a work holiday party, fit great and looked nice and conservative for the party. Only reason I have it a 4 and not 5 is because you cannot at all lift your arms as they are restricted by the cap sleeves. I would not recommend for an event where you are dancing. Other than that looks great and is perfect for something where you are needing to show less skin.

Perfect for my high school graduation. Appropriate. Great silhouette.
This dress was amazing. Such a rich fabric, and an amazing fit...well, except the cap sleeves. Those were a little tricky for hand-on-the-hip photos...but I have big arms for my height and weight. Definitely recommend this beauty.

Adorable if it fits
Ordered for my graduation. Got a back up dress. The material was all print but it was still very pretty. However, it didn't fit, kind of just hanging on me.

Unique dress to wear to prom!
I wore this dress to prom and I was so happy I did. The picture makes it look like it's white with black lace but it's actually a light purple-gray color with the printed black lace pattern. It's definitely unique and no one else wore anything like it. The cap sleeves are a little bit of a constraint for dancing, but other than that it was great.

Comfortable, not too short, just a little bit snug in the bust area.

My favorite rental to date!
I wore this to a formal gala and it is the the best dress I've rented yet! I received so many compliments and it was perfect to dance, sit, etc. in without being too loose. I wish I owned this dress!

6 fit perfect but I went up a size due to the shoulders and length. Otherwise it was a classy and perfect choice! RTR steals the show time and time again.

This dress is adorable! I got a ton of compliments and was really sad to let this one go!
Fit is slim along top, so it is better for people with smaller upper bodies. The length is mid-thigh on someone my height.

Beautiful Print
I rented this dress for a wedding. The dress fit well and was true to size. The cap sleeves were a little tight on the shoulders and made it a little difficult to raise my arms, but overall I loved this dress.

ALMOST perfect.
This dress was immensely cute. I rented it for an April wedding and it had a small pancake chest effect, but since it was 80+ degrees, this dress wasn't the best idea. Better for winter and colder weather since it's thicker and the material didn't seem friendly to Charleston heat. Sad, but I'll be renting down the road!

Great print and silhouette
I love things that nip at the waist, this dress was perfect for a happy hour/cocktail party I threw the day before my wedding. I received lots of compliments, I think the print is what makes this unique. Cap sleeves are always pretty but may be difficult to lift your arms above your head (why would you be doing that anyway?!).

Super cute!
This dress was adorable and perfect for a date night to a fancy restaurant. The pattern was interesting and modern, and the fit was very flattering because of how it cuts in at the waist. The length was also great, not too short at all.

Lady-like and classic!
This dress is adorable. I got compliments all night wearing it. It's short and has a great little unique sleeve to it, which I really loved. The fabric is lightweight yet you felt really "in it." It minimized my bust, which I was very happy about and highlighted more legs. I felt like my dress was fun and different than everyone else's. It's perfect for any kind of occasion where you need to get dressed up.

So Many Compliments!
I wore this dress for my office Holiday Party. This dress was a last minute choice as my original choice was unavailable prior to shipping. Looking back I am so thankful that I wore this instead! I received so many compliments on the dress! It was comfy and just the right length for my height (I am 5'2"). I am docking one star since the sleeves make it a bit harder to raise your arms all the way over your head, but I would DEFINITELY wear this again. Thank you RTR for suggesting this dress for me!

This dress was perfect for a November Wedding with tights and heels.
I wore this dress with tights to a wedding in November and the reception was both indoors and outdoors (with heated tents.) It was the perfect dress. I paired it with black thick tights and layered long pearls with the dress. The only thing I didn't love about this dress is the cut outs under the arms.
