This was my first dress I have ever rented from RTR and by far my favorite. The back was so unique as well as the details. I highly recommend this dress to anyone!

I didn't have any problems with this dress other than a loose part of some of the detailing on the belt. However, I wore it while working as a stage presenter for the Austin Music awards so no one could tell otherwise from the crowd! I can't remember if I got a Long or Regular size (sorry!) But the length was fine once I was in heels. The dress definitely set me apart from the other girls and I felt like a movie star. I would wear it again in the future!

I wore this dress to my senior ball and it was simply the most amazing dress I could have asked for. It is unique in the back and simple enough to not look like you're trying very hard. The dress itself is super comfortable. I highly recommend this dress!

One of a kind asymmetrical dress that really stood out at Prom!
Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size

I was really nervous about the fit. I wanted to get a size 0 and a size 2 but the size 2 was unavailable. The dress ended up fitting snugly. It was hard to get on but the size 0 fits! I got the regular length which ended up being a tad short on me. It did not cover my shoes very well. My only complaint would be the length. I wish it covered more of my shoes. I'm 5'4 and wore 3-4 in. heels. This dress is definitely a showstopper. My date and I did not match but that was okay with me. I decided on this dress pretty last minute. I ended up loving the dress! I got a flood of comments on it. It was a special dress for a special night.

Wore this dress to my senior sorority formal and it was to die for! I agree with what someone said below about it being pretty difficult to get on especially with hair and make up done but once you slip it on it's amazing. I was concerned about showing a little too much side boob with the shoulder flap worn hanging like I had it but the dress really stays where it should and hugs in all the right places. So satisfied with this rental!

How amazing the dress made me feel :)
Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Yes it looks a little daring but I took the risk and it turned out great. Its such a different style than other dresses which made it stand out. I'm 5"10 so I got the long version of the dress and I was wearing 5" heels and the length was perfect! The fit was fantastic! I ended up keeping the shoulder piece on my shoulder instead of over it and used boob tape for the size to avoid any mishaps! Overall, fantastic experience with this dress!

I rented this Gown for a Black Tie Gala I produced in NYC last December. All eyes were on me as I opened up the Gala, giving a speech in front of 600 ppl. I knew I would video taped, Photographed, and the pics could be published so I wanted to ensure I made a statement. I got SO many stunned looks and amazing comments- I highly recommend this dress. Fabric hangs beautifully making you feel so sexy, sophisticated, and stunning.

I absolutely loved this dress! I would rent it over and over again. Definitely order the long even if you are short, i'm about 5'6 1/2 and even wearing the long size i still had to wear flats. You also can't wear any time of bra (except sticky boobs) because the back prevents it. The front also drapes perfectly, but make sure you have fashion tape just so the fabric won't move too much.

I intended to wear this to a formal event, but had to wear the back up dress I ordered. The dress looks very cheap in person. Even my friend, who is a size smaller than me, tried it on and agreed it's a little snug on the backside of the dress.

This dress is absolutely amazing!! I wore it to my formal last year. The draping was very flattering on my curves, especially because it defines the waist. The detailing at the waist is even cooler in person than in the picture. I also would not hesitate on this dress if you are larger chested (I'm a 34D), I wore a Nubra and felt that I was fully covered and secure even with flowy draping. This dress was a knockout, I wish I owned it!!

I usually wear a 6/8, and the 8 was too tight for my liking. However, I was on vacation and probably indulging in too much rich food so I'll say it mostly runs true top size. Please note that this is not a white dress. It's a grey white (eggshell?) that'll go beige if you're in a room with yellow-tinted light, since it is made of layered, semi-sheer fabric. I was disappointed with the effect. A lot of people have mentioned the open back problem. I tried it on with a black camisole. The straps were completely hidden, but it completed the black half-back so I could wear a bra beneath it. Ultimately, I opted not to wear this dress. I wanted something stunningly Grecian, but in real life, the dress looked a little common (and wrinkled). My expectations were probably too high. Another word to the wise - this dress is a pull over as far as I could tell. Do not schedule hair/makeup before getting dressed. Leave time for ironing.

This dress is absolutely breathtaking in photos and in person. I received so many compliments on this dress and felt like a movie star! It was so beautiful ad comfortable-- didn't want to take it off! I wore a size smaller than I usually wear and it fit perfectly! With a bigger bust, I was a bit nervous about the draping of the dress, but it turned out great, though it definitely required some fashion tape! Stunning overall! Would recommend to anyone!

Gorgeous but you can't wear ANY KIND OF BRA (not strapless, halter, NADA, everything would show) with it AT ALL so be warned if you are curvy and the NU BRA stick on would show on the sides as reviewer below mentions

I originally ordered a cream colored Nicole Miller Mermaid Gown, but due to the crazy weather across the country, deliveries were delayed so it would not arrive in time for my function. I give RTR's customer service credit because a representative named Justine called me and e-mailed to let me know my first choice would not make it in time. I understand that there are forces of nature - like blizzards - outside of RTR's control. Justine gave me enough notice so that I could choose another dress, and RTR let me choose any price point to make up for the inconvenience. So I chose this dress, which was much more expensive than the Nicole Miller dress. The dress was stunning. I ordered a 4R and 6R and wore the 4R. With 4-in heels that had a slight platform, the length was perfect with my petite frame. Please note that you cannot wear a bra due to the open back, and the material is sheer and light colored. So I wore a Nu-Bra (what my friends and I call the "chicken cutlets") and it worked perfectly. Also, when you lift your arms, the side with the draped fabric can flap, which makes you feel like you may be exposing something - so I would also suggest double-sided tape for the under-arm area. Other than that, this dress is elegant, sexy, and very comfortable.
