I rented this for a photoshoot!
I rented this for a photoshoot. I got it in the 4, but wish I had also gotten the 2, as it was a little big and I ended up clipping it in the back. thank goodness pictures don't show the back :0 the dress was definitely worn, it had snags and pulled threads, but overall, I accomplished my goal.

Residency Graduation Ceremony
I wore this dress for my graduation ceremony from residency. Fit was true to size. At first I was let down by the color, it's duller in person and that the materials didn't feel as lux as what I expected. There were also a few snags from usual wear and tear. However once in the sunlight the color of the dress is Amazing! It photographed very well! The pattern is super unique and exquisite. I received compliments on it all day! The smudge of disappointment I had earlier in the day was completely wiped away.

Lots of compliments. Got lots of compliments.
The dress is not sparkly, but that's okay the pattern is lovely and makes it classy and sophisticated without being over the top. Rented this for a wedding, wore a different dress for that, but decided to wear this to the after party.

It fit comfortably, not to tight and not too loose. The fabric was lighted than expected- it worked
Pros: Fit, size, pattern overall look Cons: Fabric- softer than imaged and the color is darker than in the picture

Beautiful details!
I wore this dress on a date night to the ballet. I have been wanting to rent it because it looked beautiful and I have to say that photos do not do it justice. I added one of a close up to people could see the details because it really is just so beautiful. While on my way to the ballet I was stopped a few times by random people who complimented me on the dress. Unfortunately, due to the popularity of this dress I was unable to order my typical size 2 but instead rented a 4 and the dress did not fit me well. I took a risk figuring it is better for a dress to be too large than too small. I had to wear a belt with it to cinch the waist, you cannot tell in photos but it gathered a bit in the back. I'd suggest renting your normal size and also a size down. I wish I had gotten the 0 or 2. The dress was so beautiful I didn't want to return it and I highly recommend it!

It fit perfectly. There were some frayed and loose threads. But it was fine.

i wore this dress as a bridesmaid in my sister's wedding!
the fit was perfect. the 6, which i originally ordered, wasn't available so RtR sent me a 4 instead. i didn't think it would fit but it fit like a glove! i felt so classy and sassy in this dress and i received many many compliments. a lot of people guessed that it was a special vintage find. it's not but i love that it gives that impression!

This dress was AMAZING!
This dress can be worn snug (order a size down) or to perfectly skim the body (order your true size). I went with the skim the curves look and it was just gorgeous. I received compliments all night long. I danced the night away and had a very memorable evening. Thank you ladies for even starting this business, I plan on being a very faithful customer.

Beautiful, classy dress.
I LOVE this dress. I am a tall woman with some curves, and this supported everything in all the right places. I don't usually go for "bold" dresses, but I felt this was still classy, but made me feel special.

The raised geometric design on the dress makes it pop in person.
Great dress for an evening wedding. It's made of thick material that is still flexible enough for you to walk freely. Received many compliments. I usually wear a size 10 but the 8 was the only size available. The size 8 fit just right.

The color is eye catching and the fabric is light
I ordered this dress for a friend's wedding. I was nervous because this designer doesn't carry a 14 in this dress. Luckily all my workouts ensured that I am a true size 12 and it fit perfectly. The dress doesn't have any stretch but it also isn't lined which makes it easier to wear. I have a large bust and was able to wear a regular bra without any problems. I received tons of compliments and was able to dance without issue. This is my favorite RTR dress to date.

Prettier in Person
This was my backup size, size 6 was my first choice. It was a bit too large, so I think the 6 would've been just right. The color is deeper in person, richer looking. The fabric was nice, a little worn, but I think this has been a popular style for RtR. I plan to wear this to church on Easter, and it will be great for that. I am 5'7" and it hits just at my knees.

Unique dress came with tons of compliments!
First, let me say people loved this dress! It was really different from anything I'd rented before and I loved the color and the style. It definitely is a little brighter than it appears in my picture and photographs very differently in certain light. I ordered a 6 and 8 and didn't notice a huge difference in the two sizes but ultimately went with the 8 because it was a little more forgiving on my tummy. I'm 5'2'' so it does hit below the knee on me, but I didn't mind. I do agree with the others that I was surprised as the quality and lack of a lining. It's clear these dresses have been worn their fair share and my bracelet did catch on the fabric a number of times. If you happened to flip the dress inside out it looks like a real mess with strings everywhere, but ultimately that didn't matter all that much. I was just expecting something a little more polished from Vera Wang. All in all, I was really happy and would rent again.

Modest and elegant without being unflattering!
Like most, it did fit a little loose on me but still worked. If you're looking for a sexy dress, this might not be the one for you...it's more of a beautiful/classy fit. If you're shorter, it falls right at your knees. Came with a few pulls in the material (which were quite noticeable) and a small wine stain, but still photographed nicely. I would definitely wear this again!

Stunning dress for tall ladies, very comfortable
I wore this for a formal wedding with black flats and it was a wonderful choice. I usually wear between a 6 and 8 but the 6 was the better option in this case.

Pretty but too big
Although it was beautiful, I wasn't able to wear this dress. I am a almost always a size 8 but this was too big everywhere, even in the hips (usually the tightest spot for me). Didn't think to get a 6 because I couldn't imagine being loose around the hips. Had to pull something out of my closet.

Gorgeous dress that's super comfortable!
Loved the dress, it is obviously a very high quality and looks super detailed and extravagant. The material is very comfortable and soft. The dress was a tiny bit big for me but it allowed me to move great. It was also a little longer than I expected but it paired great with heels. It's a beautiful dress and I got tons of compliments!

I got so many compliments
Overall, I loved the dress. We had a 20's themed Holiday Party and it was perfect with the Art Deco vibe. The dress is a bit darker and more like a gold than in the picture, but I actually liked that better. It fit snug at the top and looser in the hips.

Dramatic. Perfect for my Gastby-themed event.
The fabric was a bit worn, but the fit was still good and the pilling wasn't visible at a distance. All in all, loved this dress and loved that it was different from what everyone else wore.

Comfortably Glam
It's not as form fitting as it looks from others' photos. It's so much more comfortable than that, and yet still creates a shape. Also, it's just classically pretty. It's not stretchy. It definitely runs large, particularly in the bust. If you're small, get a bit of padding.

Couldn't wear it way tooo big and the fabric's worn.
I had been eyeing this Vera Wang for a while and planned to wear it to a wedding. Ended up not wearing and because someone damaged a backup size was already given a free backup. The dress I received was worn/fraying. If I hadn't already received a free backup, I would have mentioned it to RTR. Thanks to them for generous customer service.

This was the most comfortable and elegant dress for an outside, semi-formal wedding.
The fit was awesome! I have broad shoulders and it fit perfectly. The waist was a little big, but it let me breathe easily! I got so many compliments all night! A home run.

I wore this for my boyfriend's fraternity formal dinner at the highest ranked restaurant in Atlanta!
I received compliments all night on this dress, and although I was bloated, this dress was very forgiving and very flattering. The threading is beautifully done and the color is unforgettable. I would highly recommend this dress to anyone, and I would rent it again!

Beautiful Dress
I got a ton of compliments on this dress, but I wish they had had a size down because I definitely could have gone down at least 1 size. (I actually had my friend pulling the fabric tight in the back for this picture... Still, all in all I was very happy with it.

I received so many complements on this dress. It was easy to stand out!
The dress runs a bit large but even in the smaller size it is incredibly comfortable. I was able to run around and set up a wedding for three hours without any discomfort. The only drawback is that the material snags easily.

I felt very beautiful in this dress. Against my dark skin tone it was beautiful.
Beautiful dress. I received lots of compliments. The only Con was the top runs a little big. It fit perfectly int the hips but a bit loose on the top. It may just be my body shape. However, it was definitely a beautiful dress to wear.

Pictures of the dress don't do it justice
If you have big boobs, it may not work. It barely worked for me (I'm a 38G, the bust size doesn't go up past 38D). It fit perfectly everywhere else but i had to take my bra off to zip it up. It was worth it . I got so many compliments. The color was gorgeous on my skin. After two tries with RTR, finally got a dress that sorta work. The other dress i ordered didn't work out so I'm glad this backup let me be great!

Beautiful dress but too baggy at the waist
I probably could have tried a size 2 in order to get a better fit but, the bust was the perfect size and the length was just what I was looking for. The only issue was it didn't hug me at the waist. The color was great and the detail is lovely, I would just suggest renting a smaller size as well to try.

The pattern and color of the dress were a great fit for the evening wedding that I attended.
I ordered a size 4, which fit perfectly. I was a bit nervous about the dress not being able to zip past my chest but it did! Im very happy I chose that size. The fabric was a good medium between thin and thick. The dress didn't make me too hot and it felt great on. My only con, if I must give one, is that the dress had small fuzz balls. They weren't concerning or noticeable in any way. I received many compliments throughout the evening. Great dress!

I wore this dress on my Thirtieth birthday to a restaurant frequented by many beautiful people and celebrities and still managed to get a ton of compliments! The dress had great structure, came in at the waist very flatteringly and the fabric was amazing.

Dress color was so unique.
The dress was stunning. The color had a gold/copper color that could be worn all year long. I rented a bold necklace from RTR but did not wear it b/c it took away from the beautiful front of the dress. I wore black pumps and gold earnings/bracelet. It ran true to size, maybe a little on the large size. This dress was not like the typical dress you would find at a nice department store. One of my favs ever!

Jackpot!
You have to put this dress on to truly appreciate its beauty. When it came to of the box, it looks like a piece of tapestry. Once I put it on, I felt like a million bucks. I loved it! It runs a bit large but it is absolutely GORGEOUS!
