Gorgeous dress, amazing quality, I imagine it's worth it if you get the proper fit
I originally rented the 2R for my school's spring gala, but it ended up being ruined by the previous renter. I had a lot fewer options than I would have liked as it was all very last minute, but RTR was wonderful in working with me to calm the anxiety of not having a dress. They sent me alternative options, but I was so stuck on a bright red dress so I was hoping I could get away with making the 4L work, but it was just too long for me. Had I had the time to hem it with tape, I *might* have been able to get away with it, but I was short on time and didn't want to ruin the dress by having it trampled on all night. In terms of fit, I think it was pretty much as I'd expected based on other users photos and reviews. The 4 would have been ok, but it's the kind of gown that I feel is meant to be expertly tailored so getting something more truly fitted was important to me so as not to have any bunching or other signs of a not-quite-the-right size situation. My one hesitation before placing my order was the neckline though and while it wasn't the worst thing, I felt like the cut would have looked better if I had a fuller chest. The bras I wear are 32Ds, but I often feel like my actual chest doesn't translate to that or look like as large as one would expect it too unless I wear a bra with a bit of padding. If I had some sort of inserts or something to fill me out an push 'em up then I think the dress might have been a bit better, but for the reasons all ready mentioned, it just wasn't working overall and renting it in the first place was essentially wishful thinking on my part. For the girl who it does fit though, it's bound to be a stunner.
