The dress was appropriate and comfortable :)
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
Fit a little large, which worked fine, since I got a size down for my back-up dress.
The dress hem hit at the knee, looked alright with pumps, would have looked frumpy with flats. I wore it with Spanx, since I was afraid the fabric would have shown some bumps and undie-lines, AND I was bloated :( . Top of the dress was a good fit on me.
I was disappointed to find that the dress was different than pictured. 1. The back "collar" of the dress was not a "V-shape" as is pictured on the website, but more similar to the back of a typical shift dress or even t-shirt really. 2. The draped ruffle was the detail that sealed the deal for me when looking at the dresses on this site, but much to my dismay, the dress I received did not have the ruffle! That was a significant disappointment for me.
Overall, I still liked the dress I received, but it didn't have any of the "wow" factor (the ruffle) that I wanted to have since I was renting a dress. If I wanted a so-so basic shift dress, I would have looked elsewhere and just bought a less expensive dress that I could also continue to wear.
All in all, my experience was "eh."
If I were at RTR, I'd ensure the item pictured is actually the same as the item sent out to customers.
