I received so many compliments on this dress!
I wore this for a gala benefiting the University of Tennessee alumni scholarship fund in my city. It was true-to-size and very comfortable. It is form-fitting around the hips and stomach, but the cape does help minimize some of that. The cape was also perfect for covering my arms as it was a little cool that evening (and also arms are not my favorite body part). The dress made for great photos in the photo booth, where I put on a mask and temporarily acted like a superhero! It is a short dress, so you do need to watch it, but I don't have one complaint about the dress, I loved it and was sad to return it.

It was great for a winter wedding!
I wore it with sheer black tights, black booties, a leopard print clutch, and red nails. It was a little restricting as far as "throwing your hands in the air," but it was very classy and comfortable.

So perfect for an October Halloween-themed Cocktail party!
So perfect for Halloween-themed (not costume) party! Fit so well and I loved the cape! It was so fun to wear--I loved how it wasn't right and fitted like most straight-fit dresses are! I wish I had $400 to buy this dress because I'd wear it a LOT.

The dress was amazing.
Fit perfectly and true to size. It was so comfortable. The fabric was thick and had a little bit of stretch to it. It was not form fitting at all which is exactly what I wanted. I actually think I might just try to buy this dress because I feel like you can wear it to a cocktail party but also jazz it up and wear it to a formal affair.

Couldn't wear.
Sadly, the sizing did not work for me. The cape/arms were awkard and the entire dress was just too large. I had to pack up both my size and my backup and return.

The event was a Gala Fundraiser for a local non-profit.
I was so glad I opted to pick up my rental at the new San Francisco store, rather than have it sent to my home. Neither of the dresses I rented worked for me so I was able to shop for an alternative from what they had in stock. I ended up with this beauty - a classic style with flair, very high-quality dress that impresses while covering all problem areas. The heavy material was never hot - just made the dress lay well. Highly recommend! Compliments all night.

I got so many compliments on this dress! The cape is super cute and definitely nice if it is cold!
This dress doesn't have a ton of give and seems to be made for someone who is less curvy. I am super curvy and I got a size larger than I normally do and it for great! I probably could have squeezed into a size smaller but it would have been very tight across my chest. I'm 27, 140 pounds, and 5'2 :)

Felt like modern wonder woman
I wore this to a womenpreneurs/political mixer and it was the perfect mix of serious and statement, sexy and strong superhero-esque look for that event. I still had movement with the sleeves and it was a shorter cut but not too high to be worried about it.

The perfect dress and accessories!
The dress fits perfectly, shows a little leg, and covers up all the spots you don't want to show. It's a classy dress and I felt great wearing it. I receive a lot of compliments.

Perfect for the Royal Ball
I wore this dress to the Royal Ball with my daughter. Nice thick material for a January event. With the cape, there was no need for a coat. Didn't get very many pictures, would definitely rent again!

Fun, amazing dress.
The dress was amazing. It was a little tight in the hips (I'm bottom heavy), so I went with the larger size. It was so much fun to wear, and I'm pretty sure I got more compliments on my dress than the bride ;) Super fun cape, pretended to be a super hero all night. Could not recommend this dress enough.

True to size! No problems.. Very comfortable and the cap was Everything! Even had a guest compare it to a dress she saw on the Oscars! Will definitely rent again.

Perfect dress for a winter wedding in the south!
I am obsessed with dress. The material was thick, so it was perfect for the wedding I attended in NC in February (not too cold, but still not hot). I paired it was super fun earrings, and nude heels and received SO many compliments, as it is such a different cut. Loved- would rent again!

This dress is very Jackie O. It made me feel like a movie star!
It is comfortable, and fits very nicely. It doesn't hug and is flattering. It kept me warm, but wasn't too hot. I was able to dance easily and sit comfortably. I absolutely loved this dress! The only thing is that I wish it was a little bit shorter. Other than that, it was perfect!

very unique
The dress is not tight, in fact I found it a little baggy in the stomach but that's definitely how the dress is supposed to fit. Very unique, an understated show stopper. Don't wear this dress if you plan on dancing.

I needed something that was quick and easy but beautiful. I found it in this dress. I just added a gold watch and a pendant and received compliments all evening on how beautiful I was. Thank you RTR for just being so amazing. I will be a continued loyal customer.

Wore to my daughter's school fundraising gala.
I loved this dress! I ordered the 2 and 4 but probably could have worn the 0 although with the cape you couldn't tell that it was a little big. Wore with a statement necklace and got a million compliments. Wish I could have kept it and would consider renting again. I would not recommend for warm climates/summer however. Material is definitely better for wintertime/cold venues.

This dress was everything I could ask for in a LBD!
Fit overall was a little large but being 5'1 that's not uncommon. I got so many compliments throughout the night and enjoyed standing out in a sea of long prom dresses. The cape was so cute and perfect I'm still kind of in love. Would highly recommend!

The fit was great. The material was heavy, so fine for a below zero evening. Paired with Cabi ballet sleeves and tights. Super comfortable, flowy, and the cape and arms are really fun.

Great dress for an award ceremony, an LBD with a bit of flair.
The main body of the dress is a bit tight, but the fabric is forgiving. I recommend going up a size.

Perfect!
This has been my favorite RTR! This dress was so comfortable and warm enough to wear without tights for a North Carolina winter night. I wore it to a fashion show and received quite a few compliments. For the most part it was easy to move around in. I wouldn't recommend excessive arm movements or dancing as the dress rides up the higher you lift your arms. But other than that I didn't have any issues. This dress was perfect! I hated having to send it back.
