Classy and sexy
Dress fit great, I am pear shape so it fit great in the hips but was a little loose in the chest and waist. Not the dresses fault. Although the top of the dress at the neckline rolled down a little, no one else would have noticed but the lining showed over the top. Great deal for the money though.

This was the perfect formal dress for a black tie awards reception
I ordered the 10 and 12 in this dress, because I tend to be in between those sizes. The 10 fit perfectly while the 12 was baggy all over. I have a large bust and hourglass curves, but had no issues with the fit of this dress, which was a miracle. It was so comfortable, the sleeves fit well, the fabric laid nicely (no spanx necessary!), and the color was amazing. I got so many compliments all night. The sleeves added a more formal touch to the dress.

Great fall/winter wedding dress.
Wore this for a late fall/early winter wedding in upstate NY. I got so many compliments on it and it was a perfect style even as the snow started to fall.

The dresses came right on time and in great condition! I loved how easy it was to ship back to RTR!
This dress was so comfortable and elegant! The length and color were perfect for the winter wedding that I attended. I loved the look and didn't want to return it! I paired it with the Kenneth Jay Lane RTR necklace. I rented a 4 and a 6, but should have rented a 2 and a 4. The mid section is not form fitting and the liner fell slightly below the lace in some areas. If it helps, my bust is a 32 G and I believe a size 2 would still fit.

This was a great first experience!
Gorgeous color, beautiful lace. A true shift dress so it is a bit straight. The dress was in perfect condition except the zipper stuck a bit but that's to be expected. A great first experience!

Perfect winter color!
Rented this dress for Christmas Eve service. The color was stunning and just right for a Christmas dress. I have a large bust (34h) and the fabric did not have any give so I had to size up to the 12 although the 10 fit perfect everywhere else and the sleeves were not too snug in either size. Length hit slightly longer than mid thigh and was perfect with tights. Would definitely rent again.

Beautiful color!
Loved this dress! Beautiful color - received compliments on it all evening during a rehearsal dinner. The lace was nice and sturdy, so I didn't feel like I was going to stretch or pull it. Definitely true to size, even for my smaller top and larger bottom. Perfect shift dress for a fall/winter evening.

Great length, fit, color, size. I got a ton of great comments on this dress!
I ordered a 0 and a 2, but ended up wearing the size 0. Some of the other reviewers wore it with a belt, but I didn't think that was necessary. I was afraid that the color would be a little too matronly, but it looked great in person and perfect for my fall wedding.

Classic and fun!
This dress was absolutely perfect for the wedding I went to. I have long legs so dresses tend to be short on me, but not this dress! The color was a little lighter than I expected but still beautiful. I have smaller hips so it was a little baggy around that area. Definitely looking forward to using RTR for my next event.

Beautiful dress!
This dress was super comfortable, and it worked great for a winter wedding. The only thing I'd say is that it is a bit short...I was pulling it down a bit both when I was sitting and while I was dancing. I'm 5'7", so maybe on a shorter person this wouldn't be a problem.

Perfect for a winter wedding!
This dress was great for a winter wedding! The material is thick and a lot heavier than I expected (in a good way!). I was nervous about my arms fitting in the lace sleeves but the dress has plenty of give and it fit perfectly. This was a destination wedding so I used the 8 day rental and everything arrived on time with no troubles at all. Loved this dress!

I went to my husband's firefighter banquet. I was perfect for the event.
Dress runs big so I would suggest ordering a size down. It fits well and is a heavier material. It kept me warm when it was cold out. Great dress.

Wonderful dress - comfortable and attractive!
I received so many compliments on a beautiful dress. This was very comfortable and fit perfectly. It was lovely and interesting while still being conservative enough for a work event. The color is gorgeous and even richer than it appears in photos. I felt confident in it, a treat for someone who rarely wears dresses to anything and usually feels self-conscious in any dress I put on! I would definitely wear this dress again.

Elegant dress that was just sexy enough to get compliments all night
I'm somewhere between an 8 and a 10 but went with the 10 for this dress as I wanted it loose and comfortable. It was exactly what I was looking for - it had an easy and comfortable fit that was incredibly flattering. This dress helped me look good in every picture from the night. It seemed everyone I spoke to wanted to know where I got it. The color and sleeves made it perfect for a winter occasion, and it was beautiful but perfectly understated for the evening.

I rented this dress for my brother-in-laws wedding.
The dress fit really well. There was room to move around and dance and it didn't bunch up or snag under the arms at all. It actually fit a little loose for the size. I ordered a size 6 and an 8 since I usually wear an 8, and the size 6 was still a little loose around the gut but still roomy. The dress lies right above the knees instead of mid-thigh like the model picture. However, aside from those minor adjustments, I was very satisfied with the fit, color, and design of the dress. I got so many compliments on the color and how well it matched my husband's grey suit. I would definitely rent this dress again and from RTR.

I got so many compliments all night. This dress was perfect for the evening.
I ordered the 4 and the 6, both fit, but the 4 was more form fitting. It wasn't tight, but hugged my body better. The dress was super comfortable as well and was easy to move in. I would highly recommend this dress for a formal or cocktail event.

A NCL Senior Tea
The dress fit true to size. The 8 fit how the dress was supposed to fit, but I knew that I had a lot of moving around and "working" to do before the event, so I chose to wear the 10. It was a little big for me, but was perfect for the day! It does fit true to size and the color is just gorgeous. The lace is a nice look and was perfect for an afternoon tea. And I would wear this again for an evening out. It was flattering for my shape now.

Winter wedding win!
Rented this dress for my friend's fancy winter wedding in early December. Color was totally on point for winter, I loved the sleeves (very comfortable and not itchy) and it was a GREAT fit. Very form fitting without being tight. Only thing I will say is this dress is short - so if you're tall you may want to go up a size. I was fine with the length and wasn't flashing people on the dance floor when I was busting my moves. Got a lot of compliments, this dress was perfect for the occasion and I would highly recommend it! Easy to wear and love.

Love this dress! Wish I could buy it from RTR!
I ordered a 10R and 12R, went with the 12R. It was perfect, roomie enough to move and sit at the dinner event I attended. Not too short when standing or sitting. The color is a beautiful plum. If you want it to be tighter I would order down a size.

Elegant AND comfortable. Perfect for winter wedding!
Dress was very elegant but extremely comfortable. It hit at the perfect length and never felt like it was too short. Sleeves had lots of room and didn't feel constricting. Can easily wear a regular bra, which is nice for my large chest. Wasn't too tight on the butt and never got stretched out throughout the evening. Danced all night and never felt like I was sweating out the dress either.

Worn to a wedding.
I received this dress as a back up after the dress I originally rented became unavailable. I ended up wearing this, but I feel like it was just okay. The color and the lace were pretty and in good condition, but I didn't feel like it had much wow to it. It is a shift dress, so it had more of a loose fit. That's fine, especially because it is a little bit on the short side, but I felt like it puffed out around my midsection (front and back). I have a small waist, so I was disappointed that it did not flatter my body better. If I pulled it down, it wasn't so bad, so I did that most of the night. I would recommend this dress to someone who is looking for a roomy midsection, maybe early pregnancy or postpartum, but I would not wear it again.

This is a beautiful and well made dress. Unfortunately, I could not wear it due to size.
The dress runs very small through the hips. I would recommend going at least a size up, if not two sizes up. Perfect for a holiday party or wedding. Could pair it with tights for a more casual look.

Classy dress, a little short
This dress is well made and a beautiful color. It was perfect for a conservative work event when worn with black tights, however being tall made it a bit on the short side for me. I would not have been comfortable wearing it without tights. It fits like a shift dress and is a little loose in the mid-section, but it looked nice.

It was an amazing wedding for two of my favorite people!
i ordered a size 6 and 4. Just like other reviews, it does run a little big. I fit comfortably in a size 4 and I have broad shoulders. Wore this dress to a wedding and it was so comfortable. Sitting down the dress rides up a bit so be careful when crossing your legs. Overall I am very satisfied with the dress.

Short, But Tasteful
This dress fit, but I wish it had come one size bigger because my larger hips could have used it. The color and the lace were really pretty. The sleeves were comfortable, too. The dress was shorter than expected, but I think that's because my hips were a bit too big for the dress. Even though it was short, it still felt appropriate for an office holiday party since it was high cut and had sleeves. I paired this dress with shimmery gold pumps and the "Tie Up in Crystal" necklace.

Lots of compliments on the dress.
Wore this to a work holiday party; I ended up wearing a size smaller than I would usually get, and it fit perfectly. I was worried that the lace sleeves would be too tight, but no issues there. It is a tad on the short side, but that's more of a personal preference... and it wasn't uncomfortable by any means. I just had to make sure to adjust when standing up from a chair. The reviews are all correct where they say to size down. Paired it with gold tone jewelry. Loved the process of working with RTR and will definitely use again!
