Absolutely gorgeous!

My daughter wore this for prom. She absolutely loved it and looked stunning. And it arrived new with tags which is always a bonus! She is 5'6" and around 115 pounds. The 0R fit perfectly even with heels. She received compliments all nights.

Perfect for prom!!

I wore this dress for my senior prom & it was perfect!! I have more of an hour glass figure & would've liked it if I had a 0, but it was still great.

Form fitting, beautiful lilac color

This dress is a beautiful lilac color, perfect for spring! The dress is form fitting as the dress is a stretch material - I rented both a 2 &4 and there really wasn't a huge difference in fit. Because of the stretch factor, I opted not to wear the dress as I wanted to eat and drink!

I loved this dress! I wish I could keep it forever!

Loved the fit. I have a smaller bust so it was a bit big for the top - I should order a 0 next time!

It is a lovely flowing dress. Simple and refined in a lovely soft pastel lilac/pink color. I wore it for my wedding in Las Vegas. It was gorgeous!

I LOVED this dress

This dress was perfect for my senior prom. The color of this dress was so unique; trust me when I say you will be the only one wearing anything like it. I would recommend ordering a size down if you want a more form fitting look. The dress was so elegant and classy, while also standing out. The material is very comfortable, it was so easy to dance in all night. I was actually sad when I packed this dress up, it was so pretty. I ABSOLUTELY recommend!!!!!

Color is AMAZING, ever better in person

Dress is extremely comfortable - able to dance/walk go up stairs without any restriction. Wore this dress on a 85-90 degree day and was not uncomfortable, the material is light and the slit in the front helps. For me the slit was more than half way up my thigh. Definitely recommend this dress for a spring/summer wedding!!

Gorgeous Dress

This dress is very bright and will definitely make you stand out in the crowd. I ended up choosing a navy/black dress, but I would definitely rent again for a spring wedding. The dress is very form fitting. I also love the high slit.

Lovely colour!

I had many many compliments on the dress. However, it does not match up well with love handles and I wore shape wear. It also runs a bit long and it was dragging on the floor the whole night even though I wore 3 in heals. Beyond that very glad I got the dress!

Beautiful

Beautiful dress! Bust is large so unable to wear even when I sized down. I would want to buy this dress and have it altered. Slit is high up so wearing shape wear is challenging.

Gorgeous color and elegant look

I rented the 0R and the 2R and other than length, there really wasn't a noticeable difference between sizes. The 0R was more fitted to my waist, which is flattering to my figure, so that's the size I went with. The wedding ceremony was outdoor and luckily this dress did not show any of my sweat! Got lots of components. The slit is kind of high, but still classy.

That slit though...

This dress is why I love RTR! I would NEVER buy this dress or even try something like this on in a store. How I got the courage to rent it, I don't even know. I loved that I was able to wear a dress so outside my comfort zone to a formal charity event. My only challenge was in finding suitable shape wear with such a high slit and a fabric with no stiffness.

Ton of compliments!

I ordered a size 6 and 8. I ended up wearing the size eight because it fit better around my hips but the top was a little big. I got a ton of compliments all night on the dress! Definitely would recommend it!

Last minute dress

So I rented another dress and RTR sent me this one last min because the dress i wanted wasn't ready however I ended up wearing this dress and loving it. I should have gone a size down so it was more fitted but the dress was beautiful color was beautiful for a nice summer wedding.

Beautiful color!

This gown was perfect for an event I was attending! Beautiful light lilac / pink color. Good thing I ordered a back up size! It was extremely large on me. I actually could have still sized down from the 2. I usually wear a 4 for your reference when ordered.

This dress made me stand out amongst the crowd!

I loved the fit! I'm 5'6 and 175 lbs with a pear/hourglass body and this dress perfectly complemented my body type! The side slit wasn't too revealing which I loved. I didn't wear a bra underneath but the dress was made well enough so it held me up. Maybe some spanx would've helped smooth out lines, but my seamless underwear and the dress did a good job at keeping me in. This dress was my backup for the wedding I attended, but I ended up wearing it because of how much I loved the way it just fit like a glove. You'll love this dress do yourself a favor and rent it!!

Belle of the ball

I felt so beautiful in this dress! Everyone kept complimenting me. The fabric is pretty thin however so finding spanx that didnt leave a like was very difficult. I also had to wear a bra with the dress. It's lined though so it's not see through, just shows every little line and bump under the dress.

Beautiful dress - so many compliments!

I wore this dress to my Barrister Ball/Law School Prom. I got so many compliments. I'm 5'5 129 lbs, 32DD and the 4R was a little too big on my stomach and I had to keep pulling it up. I still think it looked great & was very flattering. Wish I could keep it!

Perfect color- great for tall girls

5'9, 140 lbs, the 4L fit perfect. I was able to wear with a strapless bra with no issue, you can wear seamless panties, but not boy shorts. This color really stood out and I felt great all night. Very comfortable. The dress did have a light black stain on the back, like someone brushed against a tire getting out the car, but I wore it anyway... I had no choice and I'm not sure anyone noticed. Great choice for Spring.

Hard to wear

This dress shows every single line. If you have any booty it will show any underwear lines. The leg slit is also very high in my opinion especially sitting down. I wanted to wear the 2R but went for the 2L just to get the leg slit a little lower. Can't wear any sort of shape wear underneath without lines showing so keep that in mind. The color is gorgeous but it wasn't the most flattering fit on my body

The dress

The dress was amazing! I loved everything about it. I'm 5'2 and 140 lbs so it was was a little long for me. Also I would of gotten a size down because it was big around the chest area but everything else was great. Definitely would recommend

never felt more confident!!

I was SO in love with this dress, it pained me to send it back. The fit was fantastic and was so comfortable. Because of my pear shape I had to watch the slit since it wanted to creep up here and there, but overall I had no issues with the dress. The dress even supported my 36DDD cup size without a bra (literally unheard of.) I've never received so many compliments in one night! I would highly recommend this dress.

Loved the dress and color!!

Received so many compliments on this dress. Fit a tad big in the hips but I actually liked that so I could dance. Typically wear a 0 and glad I ordered the 0 in this dress. If it were mine I would have it altered just a small amount but over all was perfect!

Showstopper

I rented this for the 2019 Figawi ball. I wish I'd gotten a photo in it, because the compliments were nonstop ("you look like Miss America!") and I felt amazing! The slit is high for sex appear, but the color and ruffles make it sweet and feminine. It does run a little big-- I usually take a 4 or 6 (5'6, 142 lb, 34D), and rented the 4R and 6L. The 4 was a little bit too big in the torso, but the length was perfect with 3.5" heels. I did have to pull the bust up occasionally. I would've liked to have seen the 2, but none were available. Order your usual size and one down. This dress was amazing and I can't wait to wear it again.
