Great classic dress with a twist

Size worn: L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
The dress fit perfectly other than just slightly large in the shoulders but I have narrow shoulders. It's fairly short and I'm only 5'2" so I wore tights with it to keep it decent for a work party. The waist hit a little high on me - not quite empire, but not a natural waist so even though you don't need spanx or anything with this dress, it did wear them to try to prevent a looking like I was trying to hide a baby bump. If you're going to be somewhere dark, you can probably get away with a standard black bra an using some tape on the neckline. Otherwise you'll need strapless.

Awful if your tummy is what you want to hide!

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This was not a great first RTR experience for me. And looking back at the dress now, and knowing my body shape, I should’ve known better that this wasn’t going to be a hit. I have a large enough chest and no hips – my self conscious area is my tummy. This dress hit in all the wrong places and made me look larger than I really am. I ordered both the medium and large the large fit better, but neither looked good. It arrived too late to have any other dress shipped so I ended up wearing a backup outfit. When I tried it on my husband looked at me and said nothing. He finally broke his silence and said, I think you are just missing a witch hat and broom! I would not recommend this dress, but will be giving RTR another shot and renting another dress for a black tie event at the end of the month!

Super Cute, Non Generic LBD

Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I wore this to my company's holiday party, and it was perfect. The material has a good amount of give to it. I have a really long torso compared to my height, and I wish the waistline had hit me differently, but it didn't look bad (just not perfect). I probably would have worn the small if the sleeves had been bigger, but I didn't mind having the extra room of a medium. The material is stretchy, so it'll fit even if you have to size up.

This is a well-made, cute dress. However, while I typically do well with fit and flare styles this one was too high waisted and cutesy for me.

The dress runs large, I wish I would have gotten 2 sizes smaller. I also had to wear a strapless bra, but the top is tight so it still looked great.

I wore this dress for an anniversary date with my boyfriend. I wore it with leggings and booties and it worked out great. The fit was spot on and it was very comfortable. I also liked the V in the back, it made it a little more than just a black dress.

Underwhelming

Size worn: NONE

I ordered a small and medium and both were a little too short. The waist hit at an odd spot for me as well. Overall, it wasn't very flattering and I didn't end up wearing the dress. Not one of my favorite rentals

I ended up not wearing this dress. Both the medium and the large fit but even my husband who will never say my hips look big told me not to wear it. It is a really cute dress and the fabric is great. If you have the right body shape it is definitely worth renting!

Wish I could keep it!

Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I got this as a backup style when my backup size was unavailable in another dress. So I ended up just wearing it out to drinks with friends. With boots and a cardigan, it was super-cute and not too fancy for a night out, though you could definitely dress it up more. It was surprisingly flattering, the way the skirt bells out makes the waist look defined. I wasn't expecting to like it as much as I did, but it was super-comfortable, looked good on, and I could see wearing it to a lot of different kinds of events.

Cute and Comfortable!

Size worn: L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The L was great! There was enough give in the tummy and arm area for me and I received tons of compliments! I had a baby 3 months ago and I am actually at 180lbs. The M was too tight for my arms and [for me] was too short. I also loved that this dress has roomy pockets for my large cell phone and even a small clutch. Both dresses were in good condition. Probably would have looked better on someone with a longer torso, but I still think it was great!

Medium was too small and large was too loose but either way it was not a flattering dress. Very plain. It was a backup dress. I am short waisted and this just made me look like a ooompaloompa (sp?). Good thing one of the other dresses I rented was amazing!

Size worn: NONE

This dress seemed perfect on paper. While it fit and had the perfect amount of stretch, if you have hips that you don't want to accentuate, this dress is not for you. It cuts across the torso and for me, that's the worst place. I looked about 50 lbs heavier than I actually am because of the "poofiness" of the skirt.

I was so excited to rent this dress. When it arrived, I loved how it looked on the hanger. Sadly, it was so unflattering I didn't even wear it. If you have a full bust it pulls the waist up to an almost empire waist. I looked awful and I was terribly disappointed.

I traveled at the last minute to see a sick relative, and shortly after I arrived, my relative passed away. I was in a bind for the funeral services--I didn't have any appropriate clothing me, and didn't have time to shop. I selected this dress because it fit the bill, but I was sorry to have to return it. The fabric was lovely, and the striping wasn't as obvious as it looks in the photo - it was a bit more delicate. It was flattering (hourglass figure), and I could wear a normal bra with lower straps. Very comfortable.

This dress was perfect for my birthday dinner with my husband. I'm a stay at home mom and don't get glammed up as much as I used to. This dress made me feel FANTASTIC and it was comfortable. I also liked that I didn't have to wear a bra with the dress. It is fully lined (except for the very top of the dress). I thought it might be too warm out for the dress (summer in Los Angeles), but it really wasn't. I reserved the M and the L and went with the M because it was more fitted and I wasn't as self conscious about not wearing a bra with the snugger fit. . The dress is short, but not too short. I will definitely rent this dress again!

Ugh, not flattering on my size or build at all. My sweet hubby got a pleasant little silent smile and I said "awful isn't it?" He said "Sorry". It had the illusion of making me look about 4 inches shorter and a foot wider. I have a slightly high waist but long torso so I think that's the primary problem BUT... Christina helped me by phone and a different dress better suited for my build is already on the way in time for my event this weekend!

Evening wedding, cocktail to formal dress. Got the Medium and Large, both fit well, but differently. I liked the tighter fit of the medium (even with my larger chest), but decided to go with the large to allow for drinking, eating and dancing.
