Perfect dress for a spring wedding!

Fit really well and was plain enough so that I could accent with a fun necklace. I felt great wearing it the whole night and it stood out for all the right reasons (color, fit and style)! Plus the whole process of RTR was awesome and I didn't know what to expect since it was my first time. I definitely recommend!

Overall fit: True to Size

Wore this to a charity awards dinner where the dress code was cocktail. Wasn't about it at first but it grew on me. You definitely need to be quite tall to wear this dress. At 5' 6" and 5" heels I still wasn't sure it was a flattering silhouette for me. You need a longer necklace or belt to break up your figure. The gap in the shoulder is a cool design feature and it makes the dress a little less sweet/cute. I have quite muscular arms and the sleeve was a bit too tight in size 2 but the rest of the dress fit me perfectly. I got several compliments and stood out both because of the color and since it was very different compared to what everyone else was wearing. Definitely more fashion forward!

I wore this dress to an evening screening of Before Midnight in celebration of the RedRover V3 launch in NYC. I'm in between a 2 and a 4...but the 2 fit like a glove so it was better to go with the 4 for a little breathing room. Also, I chose to wear the commando solid thong to avoid any visible lines. It was classic and sweet, yet tailored and modern.

I'm usually a 2/4 but sized up to a 6 to accommodate my 20-week baby bump. I'm now a 32DDD, so if you're wider than 32, this dress might not fit. I was pushing it with my 32 triple D's

GREAT DRESS!

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
I was actually really nervous about getting this dress after hearing about how small the sleeves were. I have muscle tone---not "skinny" arms. But, I was able to still wear the size I typically wear in my dress rentals. However, the sleeves were tight---there is a little stretch to them, but not much. Like I said, I was still able to wear my typical dress size though. It's a flattering dress---great color, style, fabric, etc. I don't think it's the right dress for my height (petite), but it still looked cute. So, I would agree with others when they say it might go best with taller girls.

Easy wearing dress - but the arms are tight!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this to by friends rehearsal dinner. I ordered the 4, and the arms were so tight I could not even pull them up. And, I'd say I have average sized arms. The 6 fit, but did have a sag/ripple in the back near by lower back. And the arms were still fairly tight. Weird. But it fit great otherwise. I did wear spanx tights, otherwise you could see all lines on my tummy from normal tights/underwear lines. Nothing I would normally ever buy, so it was a great rental piece.

This dress is fun and flirty. The cut shoulders are a nice detail. Both the 4 and 6 fit, but I ultimately went this with tighter fit. This dress definitely emphasizes your stomach, so spanx are a must.

The color was amazing and the fit was extremely flattering. And I loved that it had sleeves so I wasn't too cold through out the evening. This is a silhouette style I have never worn, so this order was Somewhat of a risk. It turned out to be amazing! I got so many compliments on it and felt great all night long.

I ordered this dress as my free birthday dress...I originally ordered this dress in a 6, with a backup 8... I ended up overnighting a 10. The arms were a little tight in the 8. Overall a nice easy drive. I wore it to the graduation banquet and got tons of compliments. It's effortless. Paired with leopard shoes and gold watch. Kept it simple...because I had to go up a size for the arms, The Slits were not as pronounced as I would have liked, however still great.

NEVER UPSTAGE THE BRIDE

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
This is perfect for a rehearsal dinner. Its subtle and its a statement all at the same time. The color is amazing. Its a rich berry color. I chose to pari it with a bright necklace because its summer. This a truly high quality dress. It felt great. It looked amazing. I got a ton of compliments without looking like I was trying way to hard. That being said this dress runs really small. I am pear shaped so I sized up to account for that but even the arms were super tight. Spanx made it bearable and no one noticed but I could have used an 8 (which is weird because I use RTR a lot and almost always wear a 4). I wish I owned this dress. Its my favorite color and it would work well for so many occasions but size up! You'll need to!

The color is stunning. The cut of the skirt hits to flatter your waist, and sleeve slits were cute.

The sleeves are a bit tight, and the dress hugs all the curves of your body (which can be quite flattering). I received compliments all night on the color, and the style of the dress because it is quite unusual for the skirt to begin below the hip line. Great rental I would recommend it to anyone!

The. 4 fit really nicely and the length worked really well for me even though I am only 5 ft tall. It is very form fitting so definitely a good idea to order a sizzle larger as back up.

This dress fit like a glove. It was very comfortable and had movement to it. Beautiful color, not too short. It is made with fairly heavy material, so it would be hot on a normal Summer day. The evening I wore this it was about 75 degrees and humid, but felt fine. I wish I had this in every color! Fits just like the model photo. I would definitely rent this again. This was my first RTR experience and I'm highly impressed! Thanks!

Such a pretty color but SUPER short!

Size worn: 10
Rented for: Party
I really wanted to wear this dress, however it was too short for my comfort. The fit was great through the body and was the perfect weight for a fall event. I wouldn't wear this in the summer, the material is too thick. If you don't have a curvy butt, the flare at the bottom of the dress is a nice touch, if you do, beware of the flare. I didn't wear the dress as I knew I would be dancing most of the night and would not have had fun protecting my tail all night from being exposed.

I wore this dress for Christmas. On the hanger, it underwhelms (the fabric almost seemed matronly) but once I had it on I was pleasantly surprised! My husband loved it but I did have to wear the 4 because of the way the dress was cut through the waist and hips. The 4 was fine but the 2 would have been too unforgiving. I added the scarf because there is really nothing spectacular about the dress itself except for the cut of them hem, so I'd recommend a statement necklace or scarf and then it's great!

I rented this dress for a special birthday dinner at the Rainbow Room in NYC. It fit really well, beautiful color and fabric. I'm pretty short, but the length was still flirty and cute. I paired it with black tights and booties since its January. Loved the dress! It could be dressed up a bit more or dressed down with flats and a blazer. Other reviewers said it had tight sleeves but they felt fine for me.

The dress runs small and it is short! I am a size 4 and got my normal size. It was too small in the arms and bust. The dress was really short too. I would have needed to wear stockings just to give me the extra coverage. I based the sizes that I ordered on others reviews and there were a lot of mixed reviews about size and length.

This dress ran a bit tight but that could also be because I'm just a little pregnant. Wore spanx tights and it helped! Got so many compliments!

It's a shame I don't have a picture of this dress in color because that was my favorite aspect of this dress! It paired perfectly with turquoise earrings and camel color heels. The fit is snug through the arms, but is still comfortable. The flounce of the skirt makes it feel a little shorter than it is. I had so much fun in this dress and got so many great compliments.

Loved the dress. The color was perfect. I rented this dress for my 10 yr anniversary. I could only rent the 6 as the other sizes were not available, but glad it fit (a little snug). As I looked over the other comments from people who rented this dress the sleeves were a little tight if you have athletic type arms. It was a perfect length as some mentioned it was too short. Overall it was a great dress. I surprised my husband and glad I rented. This is my 3rd rental and I know I will rent from RTR again.
