Great dress for the vintage-inspired wedding.

Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was lovely! I wore it for a black tie wedding and it worked really well. I'm 5'3, 120 lbs, and a 34D and the size 4 was too small, but the size 6 fit perfectly (with tall black heels and a pearl necklace). The color does not quite look like the picture - it's a sheer black fabric over a light pink/peach fabric, so it looks more black/gray than the brown-ish picture here. The neckline was really flattering and the dress stayed up with no problem. The one issue was the boning on one side was sometimes digging into my hip when I sat down. Overall, a great dress and another great RTR experience.

This dress fit well and is very flattering and comfortable. However, the material appears kind of cheap and it wrinkles easily in shipping. I am 27 and I think the dress had a very "young" look, so I chose not to wear it.

This dress was just perfect! I wore it for my winter formal and everyone loved it. It's so classy yet sexy at the same time. I Suggest buying tape for the top, but otherwise very flattering and comfortable. A little long, but nothing a pair of heels can't fix.

I wore this dress to a black tie wedding and it was stunning. I am 4 months pregnant and it even showed off my baby bump gracefully. However, I could wear it when not pregnant and it would just lie a bit flatter. So great I wanted to buy it!

Not what I was expecting

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I rented this dress for a military formal, and was so disappointed when it arrived. This dress fit on a sense that it zipped, but that's about it. The dress itself is beautiful. However, the bust is designed for a smaller cup, I'm currently a nursing size F and this just wasn't going to cut it. The fabric is also extremely thin and flimsy, and the dress is short. I am not a tall person, 5'3, and I wasn't going to be able to wear any kind of heel. The way the dress sits at the waist is awkward. I still looked incredibly pregnant in it, and I don't still look pregnant in anything else. While I was disappointed in my selection, RTR was great about getting back to me, and gave a site credit. This won't deter me from using them again :)

I rented this dress for my senior prom. The description seemed to fit my body type pretty well (small chested, petite, short) but I was still scared it'd end up too long being only 5'1 and super flat. To my surprise, it fit absolutely perfectly. It's a thin material that's comforable to wear all night.

The best compliment was from my younger sister who said I looked perfect.

Size worn: 6

This dress was amazing. I wore it for my senior prom and it turned out to be a hit. I am average height (5'5) and the length was perfect for me while in a pair of heels. The only problem I had was with the dress staying up. I ordered a 6 and 8 but realized that I most definitely should have gone 4 and 6. It was kind of lose on my bust area, and I have C cup boobs, so maybe go smaller. Other than that, it was cute, and classy, and wonderful.

Overall good, some flaws

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I really loved the overall look of the dress. Great for a senior prom! I got lots of compliments and felt it was flattering especially for a small bust with bigger hips. It changes appearance with the light, which was really cool and pretty, but it was never as coppery as the picture here suggests. My dress had one of the boning wires sticking out in the back, so I was sort of uncomfortable in that respect. I usually wear an 8 because of my wide hips etc., but I wore the 6 because maybe just from repeated wearing the dresses were kind of stretched out. I noticed some wear and tear on the inside (invisible once put on), but maybe this particular dress needs to be retired soon.

People told me I looked like an Audrey Hepburn!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large

I rented this dress for prom and was so excited when it came in the mail. The size six was significantly shorter than the size four, and was too big, so I ended up wearing the size four. It was really tight, and the boning was popping out, but other than that the dress was lovely! I used the dress tapes RTR sent along with the dress to hem it a little. I went with a classy look - a bun, red lipstick, and winged eyeliner - and got tons of complements. Perfect for an hourglass shape. Great feel to it.

The bodice was easy to fit, very comfortable (even with the boning) all night. I ended up having to buy shorter heels because it was a little short, which is usually never the case for me but it all worked out.

I'm 5'7" and rented this dress because the majority of the reviews I saw were all excellent. When it arrived I was very disappointed that it was above the floor when I was barefoot and it could only have been worn with flats. For a formal affair, I like to wear heels so I had to return it and wear something else. I wish it would have been longer because it fit great in the chest area and it looked flattering on me. Only problem is the length.

This dress was perfect for a black tie dinner. Highlight of the nite, hearing finance brag on me :-)

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Fit: True to size Pros: Shipment arrived on time. The dress did not wrinkle, well made, and comfortable. The underlay is more of a peach color which matched perfectly with my BCBG pumps. Customer service was awesome! The ladies at RTR are happy to answer question and help you find a solution. I will order from RTR for all of my formal events! Cons: A little long for me at 5' 1". After reading a few reviews, I added invisible hem tape to my order, but should note it requires more than one packet to do the trick. Also the padding on the inside of the dress was a little jumbled, so getting the top to lay flat was a little tricky.

SO CLASSY! My dress was so special and unlike any other dress at my event!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size

I have been in love with this dress for months! I wanted to get it for prom last year, but unfortunately I didn't order it soon enough and couldn't get it. I ended up getting a different dress from rtr and I loved it! Anyways, I was so glad I finally got to rent this dress. I was in love with the picture online. It's so sophisticated and has a vintage air that I love. The corset boning makes you feel very sexy without being provacative. It's such a classy dress over all!! However, I do wish I could have gotten a 2 in time for my event (which was really my problem for not ordering it ahead). I just pinned the sides a little because the top wasn't very tight-fitting and the pink chiffon linning would show from the side. It helped a little. Also, it was not floor length on me because there was not a longer length option. The size notes say the length works best for girls who are 5'8 and below. It doesn't look too weird with heels on. I got so many compliments and felt beautiful!!! I wore simple jewelry since it was for a concert, but for a more formal event the blue agate? earrings looked beautiful! LOVE LOVE LOVE RTR!

This dress is a great deal if you want to get a long dress, look elegant but not pay much. I rented for a wedding. The dress looks classic but simple. Under the black translucent fabric it is purple so that way it is sort of a black dress but festive. Also it is great for girls with big hips, I usually wear a 6 or 8 because of my wide hips but I fit in a size 4 no problem. I didn't feel trap at all. It was tight but comfortable. Enjoy it!!

I loved this dress but the size was too small and the size up was not available for my event.

The dress runs small. I have a large rib cage but a very small frame. I would suggest going a size up if you have a similar problem. I called the help line and they offered to overnight ship me a dress for my event. Unfortunately, that dress never arrived (miscommunication between RTR, UPS and myself) and I had to go shopping 3 hours before my event started. I think this dress would have been perfect but I received incredible customer service so I'll definitely rent from RTR again!

I'm a size six, but they didn't have a six, so I went for an eight. It worked out fine! I had a little extra room and had to pull it up every time I moved, but it was worth it! It was the perfect length for short heels or flats, and I got compliments on how pretty it was all night.

I chose this as a backup dress and ordered a 2 (the 0 was not available). The top was way too big, so obviously a 0 would've been more perfect for me. However, the dress is great and I recommend it. As always, it was a bit long--but when you're 5'0", everything runs long.

Loved this dress. I didn't end up wearing it because there was a hole on the bottom mesh layer. The dress fits really well for someone with a small chest. Would have worn this with a flat or near flat shoe. If you are taller than 5'3, I would recommend sizing up or it may be too short.
