Very fast shipping an lots of great choices!
Wore this dress for an annual charity benefit for Big Brothers/Big Sisters. I love the deep blue color and how this dress hugged my body, while still making my top look good without being too tight. Since I'm a nursing mother, sizes are hard to come by since I am more top heavy right now. Hubby even asked if we could keep the dress! Will definitely rent again. My only thing was that the sides of the dress by my chest kind of popped out. I tried fashion tape, but it didn't want to stick.

Such a beautiful and well fitting gown!
I tend to fluctuate sizes often and ordered my usual size and a size above...I wore the size up because I felt it was more flattering, although both fit fine and it was simply preference. Throughout the evening the size up dos stretch a bit so I wouldn't worry if it's a smaller size because it will stretch and fit you well throughout wearing it! Trust me, THIS IS A FLATTERING DRESS! Even on your worst day I think this would look amazing ! It shows all the right features and makes you look very slim! Loved it.

Stunning color and perfect cut
I got compliments on this dress all night when I wore to a black tie wedding. Great body hugging fit without being too tight to dance in. I wore five inch heels so I went with the 2L and it skimmed the floor perfectly. It was a bit of a heavy weight so i wouldn't wear this to an outdoor event unless it was a cooler day or night. This picture was not enhanced at all so be prepared for a very vibrant color when you order. Loved this dress!

Loved this dress! Length was perfect with 3 inch heels. The fit was super slimming and hugged at the right spots. The racer back added a fun element with still being classy. Wore this to a black tie wedding in August.

STYLIST REVIEW!
Gorgeous color! This style runs true to size. The size 2R was a bit roomy on my body in the chest and hip area, as I would have preferred the size 0R. At 5'3", the length was perfect with heels. Overall really comfortable and gorgeous style!

Really comfortable and beautiful color
This is a great dress, super flattering despite being relatively form fitting. The only down side is how simple it is - I strongly advise adding accessories and pretty heavy ones at that. Also it's a little heavy so it's good for cooler weather days

RTR informed that my back up size wasn't available so they allowed me to choose other options free!
Dress fit me like a glove, which I usually stay away from but this dress has a way of making you look slimmer. Loved this color and style for my bust. Only con would be that I wish straps were slightly tighter so that weird arm boob fat wasn't exposed. Definitely would rent this dress again! Also great dress if you're going for a sexy but classy feel

Perfect for a black tie optional wedding
Got a few sizes of the same dress and wore the 6L, which was a little big around the middle but not as insanely tight on the hips/butt as other sizes. The material is heavy and nice. I'm 5'9" and the long worked well with 2 inch heels.

Fabulous dress
Loved this dress and the hubby loved it even more! It's a thicker material perfect for the fall, I didn't wear a bra and didn't have any trouble with the cold ;) I ended up wearing the bigger size only because I didn't like how the smaller one was so fitted, fabric has some stretch.

I loved the dress it was way too large in the waist and bust. I would need a 00. The length was a little long on me I wore 3in heels.

Gorgeous dress, stunning color, and very comfortable.
The cobalt blue color is beautiful in person and the heavy weight of the dress material is very flattering. The neckline shows off your shoulders and is very sleek. I wore this with gold earrings and simple rings and would not recommend wearing a necklace. The racerback in the back also makes this dress a little sporty and fun.

If you are small busted, I would suggest sizing down. It was a bit large in the chest for me. The material is great though and very comfortable. The fit can be very complimentary, but in the wrong light can highlight some imperfections so just be aware of this when taking photos. At 5'7" the long was probably 1/2 in too long with 3.5" heels - obviously not a problem if you just have higher heels!

Awkward top
Only my backup size (larger) was available to ship, so I tried it on. It fit, with a little extra room in places. I have a large bust (34DD) and I had some side boob spillage. I think this is just not a flattering dress for anyone with a large bust.

The color was stunning and fit was perfect!! Very elegant...
I am 5'4" and had to wear 6" heels to avoid stepping on the dress. I was ok with that since it was such a beautiful gown but beware if you are ANY shorter... I was nervous as this was my first long gown ordered, but I loved it. The train did get stepped on a few times in a crowd but not too bad...

This dress is the perfect canvas to be dressed up or down.
The bride asked for Cabin Chic and I believe I pulled it off. I mixed this dress with a fur vest and hat to dress it down for an outdoor fall wedding but by itself it was oh so flattering.

Great dress and super comfortable!
Great dress. Super comfortable and loved the color. I am busty but only 5'4' so I got the petite, and it was the perfect length. You can't really wear a bra, so I needed to wear the NuBra - but the dress is actually "supportive" but not tight, so gals with smaller bust can probably even go bra-less

I got so many compliments on this dress and I loved the feel of it!
Careful, the back has a teeny bit of a train and I had to hold it up for dancing. The dress itself just feels good to wear. I loved it. I wore one of the sticky-on bras and a pair of spanx.

SO PRETTY!!! Wore this to a summer wedding and received so many compliments.
I fell in love with the same style in red in a size 0R at the store, but unfortunately a 0L was only available. I still rented it and temporarily hemmed it with Hollywood tape from RTR.

I loved this dress! It was very flattering on my petite, athletic figure. Highly recommend!
My boyfriend loved this dress! The fabric is thick and the neckline is perfect for broad shoulders. This was a wonderful dress for a black tie event. The petite length made a huge difference.

Smooth and flattering with enough form-fitting hug to keep it sexy.
The double-lining makes this dress, it keeps the lines smooth and flawless. The high neckline compliments the bare shoulders.

Perfect fit and felt like a queen!
This was my backup, backup dress. When the 3 I chose did not fit at all, RTR overnighted me this one. This dress was awesome! The color was perfect on me and the flow was amazing! My coworkers were astounded and kept telling me how beautiful I looked! It did run a little long in the back and I was wearing 4" platform heels. I ended up not wearing a bra with it and it was just fine. I can't wait to rent another dress for the next wedding in February.

I rented this dress during my stay in NYC for my 5th wedding anniversary. So convenient and easy!
I ordered both the 12 and 14 and they both fit. I decided on the 14 because it was slightly looser through my abdomen and I was wearing tights (because it was so cold in NY) so you couldn't see the line from the tights. I LOVED this dress, and was able to wear it with my standard strapless bra. I got many compliments.

Very flattering dress
I wore this beautiful dress to a winter wedding. I am so happy with the selection. It was a no-brainer once I tried it on. Tons of compliments. Fit is true to size, but a little long. Definitely go with high heels. I am 5'5 and I was conscious of the dress dragging on the ground...especially at the afterparty! I would wear it again. Thanks RTR! I can't wait to rent another.

Elegant, sexy, fit like a glove
I love this dress. It's my favorite rental to date, and I wish I could keep it. Form fitting without being too snug - this dress was VERY comfortable. The cobalt is gorgeous and really stands out. I am usually not a petite size (I'm 5'6) but RTR was out of the 2 regular. Luckily, the length was great. You could see the toes of my heels but that was fine with me - less tripping while dancing! Very cute on us hourglass girls, as it really highlights the waist and booty. I would definitely recommend this dress.

Classic silhouette!
Absolutely loved it! Great cut and really comfortable material! I received compliments all night. I plan to rent the red one for another wedding. Couple downsides for me - I'm 5'4" and with 5 in heels, I thought the dress was still a bit too long. I got stepped on a few times, because the back is a bit longer than the front. And the bust area was a bit roomy for me so posing at the right angle was a must. I probably should've went with a size 2P, but still highly recommend!! This was my first experience with RTR and I couldn't have been more pleased!

As simple as it is, it is nothing short of amazing!!
Rented this for a work black tie event we have every year... was really worried because my body does not do well with material that does not form to the body. I can't do boxy styles (as much as I try). This dress was stunning on, and very classic. The only problem I had was I wore spanx and the lining would cling to the spanx causing the dress to twist as I moved around instead of flow. I didn't need the spanx because the dress was very flattering, but I felt more confident with them. I need this dress in all the colors it offers! If i was to rent it again I would definitely add a big bracelet to it. Neckline doesn't need a necklace personally. A lot happened with my order... (unavailable dresses, stains, swapping of backups..etc.) BUT the customer service team helped out TREMENDOUSLY! I will never stop using RTR because of it! Thank you!

Very comfortable and form-fitting. The dress is also true to size - I ordered the size up but didn't end up needing. I'm 5'9" and the long was the perfect length. The material is stretchy and great for dancing. Highly recommend this dress for athletic ladies who want to show off their shoulders!

Awesome dress for black tie event!
I loved wearing this dress for a black tie charity event in Chicago. It was sleek, simple, and elegant, and I received lots of compliments. The fit was great - loved the cut and the fabric. The 4L length was perfect. However, if my backup size (6L) would have been available, I would have likely worn that for comfort, but the 4L worked, too. I was able to wear 3" heels with the dress. The reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is that the interior lining of the dress kept twisting as I walked around throughout the night. I kept having to tug at the dress to spin it back around.

Amazing! Love this dress. Fit perfectly. I felt amazing in it. Color is GORGEOUS!
I would go a size down for this because it has some stretch. Falls beautifully. Can't say enough good things.
