High School Formal. I had a lot of fun with my friends.
I am shorter so this dress was great length. I also liked the pockets.

This dress was classic with a versatile color! It looked flawless and had pockets!
I think it runs a little small, I typically wear a 4 in a dress, but wound up with my backup size of 6. The true waist is where it was snug, and I think it's due in part to the cutout in the back, so it's more structured at the waist. The 4 fit wonderfully as well, but I felt that as the day wore on the 6 would be more comfortable (I wore it most of a day because it was my brother-in-law's wedding so I was in several family photos). The pockets were great and I didn't need to wear a bra because the front was well constructed and thick enough that it didn't need a bra.

Just as great the second time
Rented this a second time for a fall wedding in the south. Got compliments from the elegant old southern ladies, and that's just a win in itself. It's fun to dance in, the exposed back is a little sexy without ever veering away from elegant, the color is just exquisite and makes my blonde hair pop. I paired it with beige suede shoes and purse, later at night changed into converse in the same fair turquoise color, it was a hit.

Beautiful dress
I got compliments on the dress all night. For reference I'm 5'8'', 130lbs and wore a size 2 and got a 4 for backup. the 2 fit perfectly. I was worried the dress would be a little too short, but it hit right above my knees.

Adorable!!!
As soon as you pick up the dress you can feel the quality. Good lace, lots of layers giving it an extra poof, and an appropriate length for us tall girls. I wore it to the Travers S. In Saratoga and felt like the belle of the ball.

Gorgeous dress
Wore this to a summer wedding. It was perfect for both the church and reception. The lace is beautiful and the color is somewhere between robin's egg and Tiffany blue. The waist is tight, but flattered my hourglass figure perfectly. The lining is boned to provide stability and no bra was needed. The dress did get hot while dancing, but I was able to move well. Got many compliments throughout the night. Just a classy dress!

Standout dress!
The original dress I picked was damaged so this was my second option. At first I was nervous because I wasn't sure how it would look/fit but I actually really liked this dress! The skirt is full, but not so much that it is overwhelming. I loved the open back detail. The waist was a little tight on me, but it wasn't so tight that I felt uncomfortable. I carry more weight in my hips/legs so if you carry more weight in you stomach area I would size up for comfort. No need to wear a bra because there are built in cups. Really liked this and would recommend!

So many compliments on this dress! Loved it. Very comfortable, fit great.
Other than being careful with the type of bra you wear (if needed), there are zero cons to this dress! Absolutely loved it.

Sweet dress
This dress is beautiful in person, but as a petite person, it just overwhelmed me. The 0 was a little too tight and the 2 was just too big. I ended up exchanging it in the Chicago store (as always, RTR staff are incredible) for something with a little more give. For normal-heighted ladies, this would be perfect. I would suggest sizing up for that second size though.

Perfect for my Alice Bridal Shower
I picked this dress because it's lace blue flowers fit with Alice tea party bridal shower. The dress was gorgeous and even with 34DD I was able to go bra-less to show off the beautiful back. Everyone commented on how beautiful it was. Definitely has some poof and width in the hips so if you're self conscious about your circumference you might want to pass. Deep pockets were a wonderful touch and I was able to stash my phone and a gloss with no added bulk. Absolutely love this beautiful dress!

Beautiful dress, so many compliments
Fit true to size, very beautiful color, the open back detail was absolutely perfect! The skirt was very full, the layer of tulle added more fullness than expected, but it was still beautiful. Overall I was very pleased with this rental and would consider it again!

This dress was worn to a formal racing event. It was perfection.
The skirt is full and it has pockets. The material is very high quality and not one bit flimsy. The dress came on time and in perfect condition- it did not look worn at all. I am a 34D chest and I would recommend that bustier girls size up as a backup just in case. I think it runs true to size but definitely not small so for the backup- go a size up.

If you are short, flat chested, big bootied, this is NOT the dress for you.
It looked terrible on me. Like everyone else said, the waist ran really small. I was able to fit into both the 0 and the 2, but the waist came so high up on my body that the top of the dress just muffin topped on me. If I had some bigger boobs to fill it out, it may have worked. Also the fact that I have a bigger butt just made the dress flare out like crazy. I think this looks gorgeous on some of the taller girls.

Very nice dress but expect POUF.
Fit was slim but not an issue. The dress is tight around the upper waist and then has a huge pouf. I tried straightening out each layer of tulle and it helped but still, the pouf made me appear much wider than I prefer, especially since I already have hips. I wore this to a Christening and had no issue with the bare back, I loved the back of the dress. I did receive a lot of compliments that day of but I think it was prettier in person than in photos. The color is great in person and you can see the detail of the lace but in photos it's a bit washed out. All in all, I probably would not rent this dress again but it was fun for the day.

Great color and beautiful fit
I wore this to a Mother's Day brunch. RTR sent me this dress when my order wasn't going to be here in time due to a shipping delay. I ended up wearing it and loving it. It has pockets and it comfortable! The size 2 fit, but the size 4 was more comfortable for a long car ride

Dainty and feminine!
I did not end up wearing this dress- it can be a little snug if you have muscular arms. In addition, the wedding I was going to was in a modern location so I wanted something more fitting. Otherwise it is a very pretty color and so well made! It just makes you feel pretty. The 8 fit perfectly (except slightly snug on the shoulders) and I have a small chest (34B). I would consider it for another occasion!

The most compliments I've ever received on a dress!
I go to weddings almost every other weekend so I wanted to finally try RTR so I didn't need to buy another dress that I probably wouldn't wear again - and boy am I glad I did! This dress was amazing!! I was a big nervous when I first got it, because it was heavier and more puffy then I was expecting, but in the end it just made the dress that much more fun. The color was beautiful, the dress was super comfortable, and I seriously received more compliments (both on social media and in person) than I've ever received on a dress. I felt super pretty - which every girl should always feel. The dress is very true to size and looks very much like the many pictures posted. 5 stars, 2 thumbs up and highly recommended from me!

This dress is so elegant and I loved wearing it!
Based on the reviews, I ordered a 4 and 6 because of the bust area. I ended up wearing the 4. The dress fit so nice and I received tons of compliments. I am a 32DDD and I didn't need to wear a bra with this dress which is good because of the cutout on back. Although it fit well, I did have to adjust on bathroom breaks because the cups on the inside are small.

The dress has a layer of tulle under it so its poofier than expected.
Opening hit at a weird spot and my "back fat" hung out. Don't order if the least bit self conscious about your back

Cute with a fun surprise in the back.
This dress has it all! Perfectly fitted with a built in bra since the back is open. And POCKETS. I loved it. My husband loved it even more. Sorry about the bad picture of me. I hadn't done my hair or makeup but the dress was to cute not to take a quick picture.

didn't work for my body at all, but v pretty
i wish this worked for me. i tried a 4 and 6, but both didn't work. i'm usually btwn a 2 and a 4, but found the waist of the 4 to be uncomfortable, but the top fit great. the 6 had the opposite issue, the top was far too loose and the waist fit. i think my body type might be a bit more straight so perhaps this would work well for someone with a small waist, but the 6 looked incredibly sloppy on me. it was also quite poofy. no bra needed for this dress.

Super cute, a little retro.
I'm a size 2 in jeans, and a 4 in most other things. This dress runs true to size, but in bridal sizes. I imagine it it comes from their bridesmaid line. On me, it had a very Mad Men early sixties vibe. The skirt has a layer of tulle and pleats so it's fuller than you think. I got a lot of compliments at an Irish themed party. The lace actually has four petals, so it looks like it's covered with a field of shamrocks.

This is the most beautiful dress. I wore it for a summer wedding.
I ordered a 6 and an 8 and ended up wearing the 8 because the top was a little tight on the 6 and the back has an opening where some of my skin squeezed out which wasn't so flattering. The size 8 was just perfect. I wore the dress with nude heels. I wore it with just a simple pair of pearl earrings and a pearl bracelet because the lace has quite a bit of detail. I found the color and the material to be quite beautiful. I would highly recommend this dress.

A gem. To reduce puffiness at the hips take care to flatten out each under layer of crinoline separately.

So pretty!
I LOVE THIS DRESS!! This dress came to me as a backup when the second size of the dress I originally chose was unavailable. I didn't end up wearing it because it wasn't right for the night wedding I was going to, but it was so cute and comfortable! LOVE the full skirt, and the interesting open back detail. Will DEFINITELY rent this again!

Made me feel beautiful!
A little tight in the waist for me (but I've got a pretty straight waist). A classic look, surprisingly comfortable, and bearable in southern July humidity ( A HUGE PLUS ). I received endless compliments and the color is a beautiful Tiffany blue. I would definitely rent again.

Such a fun dress!
I wore this as a bridesmaid in a wedding. I loved it. It was flattering and a fun. It runs a little big, possibly because of the back of the dress being open. I did not wear a bra and felt like I had enough support.

Perfect for a fall wedding
For a short girl like me, it was a little bit longer than I'm used to, but otherwise this dress was really well-made and comfortable. I loved that it had pockets but be aware that you can't wear a regular bra because it is essentially backless. I got a MASSIVE amount of compliments on this dress.

I loved this dress SO MUCH. So many compliments, want to purchase! :))
This is one of my favorite rentals yet. So vintage and sweet and still felt sexy in this dress. I went with the 6 because it was a 2 hour drive to the wedding, the 4 also fit. Did not need a bra which made it a simple outfit. Dress kept me pretty warm at an unusually chilly California wedding. I would love to go swing dancing in this dress!

Not a flattering fit for me, but beautiful color
RTR didn't have my original dress order in both of my requested sizes, so sent me this dress as a backup. color was beautiful but skirt was extremely full, which was not flattering on my hips. Dress is very 50s looking, but not quite the style I was going for.
