The dress was very light material which was great for a summer wedding.
I have a large bust which is why I went for the 12 over the 10. The waist/hips were a little looser than preferred but it turned out ok because I love to get down on the dance floor :)

Great for work and events.
Fit was true to size. I wore this for work and business-casual events. This dress does not contains a lining, so plan to layer up. Wasn't sure about the style at first, but it definitely grew on meQ

I received many compliments on the fit and colors of the dress. It was unique and stood out in crowd
The fit was true to size and fitted my body type very well. I wore the size 8 because I wanted it to be a little looser on me.

Sleek, gorgeous, worn for a conservative wedding
Dress was fitted, sleek, and perfect for for a conservative wedding. I needed a dress that covered my shoulders. Worn with shiny black pumps & (rented) Sam Edelman Charcoal Stone earrings. This fit my Crossfit shoulders without being restrictive. The fit is for a true hourglass or athletic shape. I am a small D cup - would suggest a padded bra if you aren't a C or D. Zipper was bent from someone "squeezing" into a size they didn't belong in, as well as the waist stretched out - I notified RTR and they responded quickly and professionally. They have my faith and continued repeat business. After another rental outfit crewed up my husband's tux and delivered two size two large (with no help whatsoever) it's so refreshing to deal with a professional company. Come for the product, stay for the service.

So flattering! I am in love with this dress!
I couldn't be more pleased with this rental. I found it to be one of the most flattering rentals to date and equally fabulous for work or formal dinner dates. This was a true RTR hit, and the stylist team made an excellent referral! Absolutely thrilled and will definitely rent this ensemble again.

Ultimately not my style.
I tried this dress on as part of the At Home Trial. The dress itself was great quality and was flattering on, but ultimately not my style. It was a little small on me but not terrible. I would recommend trying 1 size larger.

I wore this dress to my 10 year college reunion. I received tons of compliments and felt great!
The dress ran true to size and was a good length (even for me, and I am 5'11"). The color looks just like the photos ... a nice, dark purple with some shimmery quality to it. The black makes shoes easy to find. I would highly recommend this dress.

This dress is elegant and has a sexy edge without showing skin. Great look!
I loved the fabric and fit of this dress. It is beautiful and comfortable. I'd rent it again. I wore it to a non-profit gala that was black tie optional and thought the dress was totally appropriate. The sheen in the purple panels makes the dress more formal.

I got so many compliments on the dress!!
The dress fit very well! I ordered both the 6 and the 8, and while they both fit pretty well, I ended up wearing the 8, which was a little more comfortable around my thighs. The dress was so flattering, and I got so many compliments!!

Excellent back up!
Rented this for a back up and did not end up wearing it…sadly. It is very pretty, super comfortable, and incredibly flattering. There is a bit of metallic in the design which makes it more interesting. The fabric has give. Very well made.

I wore this dress to a Fall Junior League Event. Great for a daytime event!
This dress fits true to size. I only wish it was a little tighter in the waist. The material does not stretch, so the shape of the dress on the hanger is exactly how it looks on. The length was about mid-thigh on me. I'm about 5'5''. I wore the dress with black tights and suede booties.

This dress was comfortable, felt true to size, and was perfect for a family holiday gathering!
I wore this dress for my family's Thanksgiving dinner in order to achieve a balance of dressy and casual. It was perfect! I am basically a size 5, and always order a size 4 & 6 from RTR. The dress in my photo is the size 4, so I would say this style runs somewhere between true-to-size and a little big. Also note that I am 6'0" and 100% of that height is from my legs, so this was short on me, but would typically probably be just above the knee/to the knee on someone who is more proprotionate. Overall, it was a high quality item! I didn't realize the paisley purple design had a bit of shimmer to it until I saw it in person, and that added a perfect, extra touch of elegance. I highly recommend this dress & designer!

Classy
I wore this dress to an industry (professional) holiday party. I'm on the board and wanted to look professional, yet style stylish (and hot!). This dress was perfect - it's a conservative cut, but the black blocking creates curves and the dress is fitted, which makes it a little sexier. It's stretchy so it's very comfortable too. Got lots of compliments.

Beautiful Retro Vibe and Perfect Holiday Dress. Loved it!
I adored this dress and would buy it if I could afford it. The photos don't do it enough justice, the purple brocade is very rich and slightly metallic which offers a little sparkle and makes it appropriate for parties. However, the cut is fairly conservative so I didn't feel inappropriate at a corporate holiday party. Both the 6 and the 4 fit well, the dress has enough stretch that it's comfortable. I chose the 4 because it hugged my curves a little better and the length was a touch shorter. As you can see from my photos the length is longer on my petite frame but I think that added to the vintage feel of the dress. My daughter who is taller and a 34DD chest wore the size 6 the next night and it looked amazing on her so it works for larger chested girls as well. I paired it with a retro looking bootie and left jewelry to a minimum as the dress stands well on it's own. I received a lot of compliments. Don't hesitateto rent this stunner.

It was beautiful and extremely comfortable. People kept complimenting me on how classy I looked. The top fit just fine, but the bottom was bit loose. It's okay though, it just gave me more room for food :)

Very flattering overall, the black paneling is very slimming. Got a ton of compliments, would definitely consider renting this same style again in the future. Sleeve length was great--long enough to cover problem areas. Very comfortable!

flattering cut and looked great on. Not too tight or too short; subtlety sexy. It works great for something a little more professional or a party where you don't want to be too flashy.

LOVE this dress!!!
I cannot even begin to tell you how much I LOVE this dress! It was so flattering--especially for this 43 year old mom and the colors were so intense and rich....much more so than appeared online. I wore this for a political event at the Four Seasons...a dinner for the Speaker of the House. It was important to look classy and elegant and this dress allowed exactly that. I'm 5 '8 and feared this dress would be too short but it was perfect. I live in New England and this event was in December...so I wore SPANX tights to keep worm and keep everything where it needed to be! : ) This dress was ideal and I can't wait to rent again!

Great dress! I wore it for a business presentation and it was cute along with being professional.
The fit was snug but it was exactly how it was supposed to fit. This dress is great and it saved me from having to buy an entire outfit.

Easy-peasy!
I had issues with the other dresses I had rented, one was a bit too snug (and I only received one size for some reason) and the other had an extremely sticky side zipper making it super hard to zip up at the waist and I was quite nervous it could break while trying to zip it before the wedding. I was in a bit of a panic but RTR offered me another dress and shipped it overnight to the hotel where we were staying for the wedding. It was there when we checked in and happy to say, the 10 fit me perfect, maybe could have gotten in the 8 since the black fabric stretches but overall, the 10 was very comfortable and easy to wear. I also loved the bit of a sleeve on a January evening in the NE. The jewelry I rented looked great, I didn't wear all the bangles because they were pretty noisy but the three I did wear was plenty. I added my own sheer black scarf and let it flow down the back of the dress for an extra bit of flair. RTR was super easy to deal with!

Great dress!
Fit was perfect. True to size, hits right above the knee. I wore this to a school event so I wanted something conservative and this hit the mark. Plus the stretch and panels kept it sexy. Only drawback is it doesn't have a lining.

Scratchy Yet Absolutely Gorgeous
I only give it a 4 star rating instead of 5 because of the scratchiness of the dress. The purple fabric on the dress irritates your skin but other than that it's amazing. Fits true to size and holds everything together. Good length for a dinner and the sleeves are proportional to the dress instead of tight like some can get. I have a full bust and it was a bit snug but not uncomfortable.

Fun dress for work or play!
I rented this dress for my work holiday party. I ended up wearing my back up size of 8 to the party, but the 6 fit as well. I wore the 6 during the day with a blazer and black pumps to a conference and then later that night with boots and a jacket. I wore the 8 to the party with tights and dressier pumps (which I didn't get a picture of). It was a fun dress...kept it classy for a work party, but still added a little touch of shimmer. Classy is sexy too, and I felt great in this dress, got lots of compliments and had a very fun time in it :-).

Classic with a subtle edge
I wore this dress to a company holiday party - the color, fit, and material made it the perfect dress for the occasion. There was a subtle hint of sparkle, but it was executed in a very tasteful way. It was formfitting, but still appropriate for wearing around my co-workers while still maintaining the attention of my date, and being super comfortable.

Very flattering!
I wore this dress to a brunch for my Mardi Gras Krewe. I chose it because it was purple, and it looked daytime without being work-y or church-y, and it was dressy without being fancy. It was perfect for the occasion, and I got a lot of compliments. It was much more flattering than I expected it to be. The photo makes it look a-line and fairly loose, but it was close-fitting and really accentuated my waist and showed off my curves. My only complaint is that the brocade fabric panel feels a little more cheap than it looks. The fabric overall was not what I was expecting. It was definitely thinner and stretchier, which wasn't a bad thing...just something to be aware of.

Perfect dress for a rehearsal dinner! Sexy, but not over the top :)
This dress was beautiful. Ran true to size but the bust area was a bit snug, as I would have imagined. The purple area had a beautiful sheen that really stood out and made the dress classy for a formal event! Great dress for someone that has a larger bust and wants to wear a sexy dress without showing cleavage. Will def rent again!

The dress is SO flattering. Sexy, but not trashy.
I was asked to give a keynote address for the Board of Directors of a medical school. I felt feminine, attractive, powerful, and confident. It was just right for standing out while still being dressed professionally.

Flattering and Comfortable!
I rented this free birthday dress to wear to work. It fit our conservative dress code, not too short and was super comfortable and figure flattering. The material is on the thicker side, I wore it to an after work dinner and received many compliments at work and at dinner. There is a little bit of stretch, so it just fit like a glove.

Comfy, pretty, modest
I love this dress ! I had a religious wedding and I needed something modest so I chose this dress. I normally wear size 8 or 10 dresses. I wore the size 8 and it fit perfectly! It was super comfy and I loved the color. I was able to sit comfortably and dance around in this dress. I highly recommend! I got soo many compliments!

"Let me guide u 2 the purple rain. Purple rain, purple rain..."
As a big Prince fan, this dress was calling out to me. I wore to a work holiday party. The 0 fit in almost every way and would've been fine if it were all I had, but it was skin tight in the backside area - too tight for this conservative affair - so I was more comfortable wearing my backup size, the 2. I also wore with a padded brassiere and control top tights. The model's picture doesn't do any justice to the beautiful black jacquard detail - I was complimented quite a bit on this. I would be happy to rent this dress again. R the R is such an innovative and helpful service. Dress shopping at the mall was once a huge drag, and an expensive ordeal, but I will probably only rarely buy dresses now that R the R is on the scene.

Such a great dress!
I received so many compliments on the dress. It was so comfortable to wear all night. I was really worried that I was going to need a size 4 since I didn't really know my new size since having a baby but the 2 fit perfect. I might have even been able to pull off a size 0 but the 2 fit great. The only con was the hem was already coming apart when it arrived. It was held in a few spots and I thought it would make it through the night but as soon as I got out of the car one stitch popped and a small section of hem came undone. Would have bugged me but the section that popped was the black part so I just took one bobby pin out of my hair and slid it over the loose hem. Worked like a charm. I would defiantly rent this dress again.

This dress is classy and impressive
The dress is the perfect mix of comfortable and classy. The fabric is of high quality and looks pitch perfect--even better than the pictures. Because it is so stretchy, make your alternate size one down from what you normally wear. It actually stretches out relatively fast and lost its shape a little bit at the bottom hem (but wasn't noticeable from other people's vantage point, just from above). This is a little more conservative and although it has a little sheen, it's not the most daring piece. Nice for business events or for the more body con dresser.

Loved it and was comfortable!
I'm usually an 8 but rented a 10 bc I had another dress from this designer run small. This was much more true to size and an 8 would have for perfectly. So comfortable and easy to move in. I had so many compliments!
