Replacement size - fit perfectly

This was a replacement size, but ended up being perfect for me! The one I selected was unavailable when it was time to ship, but I talked to a stylist and she suggested going a size down. I'm 5'7 and I would still be able to wear a mid heel. I'll probably just do hem tape and wear sandals though. The regular might have been better for that but always tough to say. The dress is very comfy, I can zip it myself, and it still has the tag so I'm the first to wear!

Navy Blue Brothers Wedding

I rented this as a bridesmaid dress and it worked out so well. I'm a first time RTR customer and I was so nervous the dress wouldn't fit or be flattering, but it met all my expectations and made this special day so easy. The dress was elegant and the fabric was beautiful. It did arrive wrinkled and needed to be steamed. The dress was a little warmer than I expected, its lined with a satin/polyester fabric that made things a little hot underneath. Other than that, no complaints. Fit true to size, I'm 5'7" 185# bust 36 B and I wore size 12 R which is my normal size. Worked great w a strapless bra. Rented a necklace as well but didn't need it as the neck line comes up to the collar bone. Fancy bracelet was plenty!

Pretty, simple dress

I did not select this dress for the black tie wedding I was attending. It was very pretty! Flowy and forgiving. However, the 4R was a bit big on me. I'm normally always a 4 or even sometimes a 6. It just had a little too much extra fabric around the bust and wasn't tight enough in the waist.

Wish it worked

I love the neckline of this dress and it's flattering waist but couldn't wear it because it was a bit too tight in the bust to wear all night.

Loved the length!!

This dress was wonderful to wear to a more formal summer wedding. Also, I'm 6 feet tall, and finding floor length dresses is difficult. I'm glad this dress came in a long length! I was even able to wear a little heel. I'd definitely order this dress again for another occasion!

Lots of compliments, great color and comfortable.

It was slightly tight across the chest so larger chested may not fit. One size was missing the sash. Great length for me, wore minimal heels and I am 5'4.

Great dress!

This was a gorgeous dress and I loved the fabric and neckline. Great for an end of summer outdoor wedding. The only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars was because of the length. I am 5'10" and should have gotten the long, especially since I wore heels!

Perfect!

I loved this dress! The fit was spot on! It was light weight and definitely long enough. I'm 5'7 and got the 14L and was able to wear a short pair of heels and it worked great! The straps did start to bug me towards the end of the night though.

Simple but elegant!!

This dress was perfect in every way. I wore it for a mid November out door wedding in Texas. A cold front blew through and the night was in the 30s. I wore leggings under the dress and no one knew! The length is perfect I wore a 3" wedge. Love love love this dress!

Classic and beautiful

Beautiful dress! It fit great, but was a little long for my 5'2" frame. I wore wedges so the dress didn't drag. It wasn't an issue, though, so I still gave the dress 5 stars. Even with a larger chest I didn't have any issues with the fit. Everyone complimented the dress! I would definitely rent this dress again. **Note about the sash/tie... the dress I wore had the tie, however the alternate size I ordered did not come with it. Another girl ordered the same dress and neither of her dresses came with the tie. So don't be surprised if you get one without it...

Perfect Dress!

The picture doesn't look super flattering of this dress, but it really was gorgeous. I got so many compliments on it. I had read the reviews and got a long. I'm at a height where I could have gone either regular or long depending on the shoes. I wore a three inch heel and the length of the dress was perfect.

Tight in the chest

I rented this dress for my husband's coworkers Indian wedding. I loved how it was long and flowy and the color was rich and saturated. The issue I had with it was that I am too chesty for the dress. I am a 36c and the size 8 dress was very tight across my chest. I had plenty of room in the waist line though. I couldn't wear a bra due to size and couldn't add more bulk but the fabric is thick enough were a bra is not needed. Overall a nice dress but order up if your bigger chested

Beautiful. Another liner issue for bigger girls

Didn't wear. It looked gorgeous up top, but the liner was so tight it was bunching. Bigger on bottom girls--this will not work.

This dress was a little long for me, but with heels I only had to hold it up when walking. Beautiful color and the RTR team really worked with me when my first choice wasn't available. I would definitely rent this dress again!

Loved this dress!

I loved this dress! I felt so pretty in it! The top was tight enough that I didn't have to wear a bra with it, which I liked, but might not be everyone's preference. I didn't end up wearing the sash with it because I forgot to put it on, but I think it looks good either way! It ended up being a little shorter on me so it didn't go all the way to the floor because the 10L wasn't available, but it wasn't too bad! If you want to make sure it hits the ground, make sure you get the right length but it looked fine this way!

the perfect classy dress for an incredibly gorgeous wedding.

Loved the color and style. The flowy nature of the dress made it lightweight and airy on a really hot (96 degree) summer day. I could have used a size smaller in the chest, but the style of the dress made it really easy to conceal that preference. It was the perfect dress for the wedding and I received a ton of compliments.

This was for my sister's best friend's wedding.

I could not wear this dress to the event because it was way too long. I am 5'1'' and ordered the 0P and it was maybe 4 inches too long and that is even with my tallest heels. It is a very press dress, but beware of you are on the shorter side!

Large and loose

Hangs large and loose. Not as flattering as other options. It really emphasizes wide hips. May have looked better on someone taller. Very very long, even with the petite length.

Loved the dress but it was not bust friendly for 34DD I ordered both the 8 & 10 they both fit great, but the 8 wouldn't zip when it reached the bust. Overall, it was amazing and I got tons of compliments!

I'd recommend to petite women.

The top is pretty narrow, so it is somewhat constricting. The dress didn't come with the belt, which I think made the top look frumpy because you didn't have the belt cutting it off and giving it definition. The color was very pretty, and the material was pretty nice. It also flowed really well, so I could see it being comfortable to dance in. Overall I think on a petite woman, and with the belt, this could be a really beautiful dress.

Perfect for a Summer Wedding!

Loved this dress, the skirt was full and flowing. Everything was great with this dress except that the top was a little snug so it didn't sit as nicely as it does on the model. My shoulders and back are broad so the top pulled slighlty under my armpits.

Beautiful dress, tight shoulder straps

I loved this dress and got so many compliments on it. I got the 8L and 10L as a back up, but the 10L actually felt a lot smaller than the 8L. It fit great, but the shoulder straps were really really tight. It didn't stop me from dancing all night, though! It looks great paired with a long necklace for a dressed down look, or a chunky statement necklace to dress it up. Overall, a very fun dress and beautiful color!

Did not wear

I normally wear an 8L, but since it was unavailable I ordered an 8R and 6L as backup. The 8R fit well in the bodice, but was too short. I am 5'9 and it was not long enough to touch the floor in bare feet. The 6L was way too small in the bodice- I was about 3 inches away from being able to zip it! The difference between the 8 and 6 was surprising. I did not wear either dress.

I rented this for a summer wedding. It is classic and simple, yet flattering.

Unfortunately, though the dress fit great on top, it was was too long for my 5'3" frame, even with heels on. I anticipated tripping and stepping on it all night so unfortunately it is going back.

Easy to wear, very flattering!

I wore this 6 weeks postpartum and it was perfect for hiding the belly area but still looking sexy with the exposed shoulders. It was a little long and usually I wear heels to a wedding and the switch to flats to dance, but I just wore platform sneakers the whole time because the dress would've dragged/ripped if I switched to flats. (I'm 5'4").

RTR Team Review

Such elegance with a stunning flow! If you are a bridesmaid or attending a wedding, this dress is the perfect rent. It is extremely convenient at the waist being it is self-tied, giving you the opportunity to style the way you desire. I wasn’t crazy about the extra fabric around the waistline but that can be easily fixed by thickening out the tie and hiding the extra fabric within. The fabric itself has no stretch with a much fitted under lining at the bust, therefore working best for A to C cup sizes and should be worn with a strapless bra. Regarding size, it runs true, but if you’re like me and have a bigger bust for your size, I recommend sizing up for backup and if not, size down so it’s more form fitting to your body. Due to the high-neckline, a necklace is not necessary and all it would need is a statement bag and fancy bracelet. Overall I received many compliments on this dress and will definitely be renting in my future!

pretty dress from waist down

This was a backup dress, so I didn't end up wearing it. I very much liked the sash and the skirt on the dress; they were very pretty and exactly what I'd hoped. But the top was a little odd...something about the cut of the shoulders and chest, I think. It makes it very tricky to wear a bra of any type and yet without a bra, the top of the dress is not going to be flattering.

I liked it so much that I've already rented it for my next event!

Lovely dress for an outdoor wedding. The 14L was the perfect length for me (I'm 5'10"). The fit was very flattering and it felt feminine and flowy even on a hot South Carolina summer day. I think that you could easily dress this up or down, which is also a plus. Update: I did rent this for a 'black tie optional' event, and dressed it up a bit more than when I wore it to the wedding. I had several compliments throughout the night. I still love the dress, but was disappointed that the one I was sent was missing the belt. You wouldn't notice it if you weren't looking, and the dress looked good anyway, I just liked the added touch of the belt.

Beautiful dress.

Beautiful dress. I'm 5'7" and got the regular length which ended up sweeping the floor when in flats. If I was to have worn heels, then I would have needed the long length to have the dress sweep the floor. Also, the dress is tight around the bust.

This dress is beautiful but the fit around the bust area is a bit awkward.
