It was super flattering and the colors are fabulous!
I'm usually a four but the dress is stretchy so I went with the two. The two even fit a little bit loosely!

Comfortable and great for dancing!
I wore this to a club on the top of the Rio in Vegas. It was easy to move in. I got compliments all night long. It must have flattered my rear end because it was grabbed twice! LOL! I love the colors! I am 5"8" and 148lbs. It wasn't too short either! Big plus not to tug at the bottom while you are dancing.

I received comments about this dress all night! Different, and one that draws attention.
I'm 5'3" and 115 lbs. Athletic build. I'm usually concerned with how long the dress is aka where it hits on my thighs. This is a great, slim fitting dress. It was a bit loose in the stomach area, but it wasn't a huge issues (only I probably noticed it). Super comfortable and attractive. I want to rent it again for another event! I would get a size smaller than you normally are to ensure it fits properly.

The perfect dress for VA Tech graduation dinner because it had the school colors.
The dress ran a little big, so I should have ordered a smaller size and it probably would have hugged my body better. The top was large on me and just made me look larger. The knot didn't fall in the right place either. However, it was very easy to wear in terms of style and comfort. I got extra points for wearing school colors to my husband's graduation dinner party!

Super sexy, comfortable dress!
I actually rented this dress for a charity event. In the picture online, the bottom of the dress look red, but it's actually hot pink. Luckily, the RTR stylist was able to send me another red dress overnight! I was SO lucky that I was bale to wear this dress to a cocktail party the night before. TONS of compliments and very comfortable. I was worried about the length since I am 5'2 but it was fine (if I owned it I would def hem). Great experience with RTR!

Cool design, strange cut
The cut of this dress is quite odd -- it's tight enough to expose flaws if you fill it out, but with enough extra fabric to hang awkwardly if you don't. That said, I enjoyed wearing it and found it comfortable. And I got a lot of compliments from friends who are much more fashionable than I am! I was nervous about renting the 2 since I usually wear a 4 or 6, but I think it ended up being the right size for me. The bright orange color at the very top was not ideal for my olive skin tone -- I bet this would work better on more people if the colors were reversed from bottom to top. Compared to the model I am shorter and bustier, so the skirt was longer on me (almost to the top of the knee when I pulled it down and mid-thigh when it rode up), and the slit in the front exposed more cleavage.

Thanks, I'm similarly built and I was considering the 4, will try the 2.

Thanks Suzanne! I hope it works out for you.

Blah
Looks great on the model but when I put it on, it left much to be desired. Runs big so I had all sorts of extra material on me that just made me disappear and gave me absolutely no shape. I really wanted it to look good because of all the bright colors - but just didn't POP for me. Luckily, I was only sent the dress to review... and I didn't actually have an event.

Hot summer dress!
Wore this beautiful creation to an outdoor cocktail hour and graduation ceremony and dinner at a 5 star hotel. The colors were amazing! I wore spanx just to keep everything in place. Fabric is stretchy, forgiving. Pretty true to size. I usually wear a 6-8. The 6 fit perfectly. This dress is very well made, there are snaps to keep your bra in place. I would buy and wear again if I could!

Never felt better, fabulous dress!
This dress is perfect for a summer wedding - it's bright, comfortable and sassy. There was not much difference in size between the 2 and the 4. Since it is meant to be more form- fitting, I went with the smaller size. My husband could not stop saying how much he loved this dress - and that almost never happens! I felt confident and beautiful and was sad to send it back.

Comfy elegance!
This dress was worn to a graduation - and could also be worn to a wedding, date night, party - whatever. Very versatile. If you are a fan of the LBD, try some color and try out this dress - gorgeous. The 12 was a little tight and I didn't feel like wearing Spanx, so I wore the 14 and it was very comfortable - I could have worn it for days!

Great color and very comfortable
This dress fits like a glove, so if you have spanx I suggest you wear them, im pretty busty so the slit in the front for cleavage was pretty much open lol but other than that the dress was very pretty.

Great colors
This dress was a material that I wasn't expecting, it was therefore a bit less forgiving than I was ready for. The colors were great, if I had the appropriate undergarments I would have loved it!

Runs true to size, but clingy
Unfortunately, this was my backup dress and I ended up not gong with it. It was just a little too clingy, but if i had been 10 lbs lighter, I'm thinking it would have been perfect.

Absolutely stunning!
I rented this dress for my parents 30th anniversary vow renewal. The material was light enough to keep me cool during the outside ceremony on one of the hottest days of July. It was long enough to be classy, yet sexy. I didn't like how the material bunched at the stomach and rear area but that was easily fixed with a pin.

Loved the dress. Colors were gorgeous.
Definitely runs large. I wore an 8 and could of even done a 6. Got tons of compliments on color and dress all night. Perfect for summer wedding. There is extra fabric runching around middle which can sometimes create a pouch look but the dress is very forgiving.

Feeling sexy without sacrificing comfort.
I rented this dress for a dinner date with my husband to celebrate our anniversary. I ordered the 4 and the 6 and ended up wearing the 4 (to be honest, I never even tried on the 6; the 4 fit so well that I just went with it). The dress is incredibly comfortable and the stretch and ruched fabric make it very forgiving. I tried it on with a few different bras and found that wearing a traditional bra (with a deep v cut) was the best way to go. The dress has small straps on the shoulders to hold your bra straps in place, so you don't need to wear a strapless. I wore it with nude shoes (I think that a dark color would overwhelm the dress) and loved the overall effect. I received a lot of compliments and my husband loved it. I would recommend it for summer events (it would be great at an outdoor party), dates, and parties where you want to be a sexy without going overboard.

In my opinion, it was just alright.
The dress is made up of a slickly material and since I'm 5'1 ft and about 95lbs I felt this dress was not as form fitting as I would have liked. Also, since I'm a bit short so the dress was longer on me and made me feel bigger than I am. (Like other reviews said, there is a lot of extra material on the dress near the gathering of colors- on the stomach area).

I absolutely LOVED this dress!!!
The color was gorgeous! It went from Coral to Peach to Magenta/Pink (not red like pictured), and it was ruched all over. The placement of the colors and the ruching definitely accented the waist, so the dress was very flattering. I have definitely never gotten this many compliments on a dress before, and I did not want to return this dress...sigh! Consistent with a lot of the reviews, this dress definitely runs large. I generally wear a size 16, but I had lost some weight, so I thought the 14 would be perfect, but it was like a mumu on me. The 12 fit me well and was not tight at all (even though I was busty and had a big butt and wide hips), but still hugged in the right places. I definitely recommend getting a size smaller.

I loved this dress I wore it for my two year anniversary.
It was super comfortable and was awesome for going out to dinner. I would definitely rent this dress again in the future! I think it runs a little large, it's super stretchy so there's plenty of room for comfort (especially after a huge dinner).

Great dress! I received so many compliments on it!
The material was great, so comfortable. I was nervous the knot was going to stick out and look weird in pictures, but it didn't. My strapless bra showed in some pictures when I was leaning forward, but it was an easy fix by just pulling the slit up and back together. The only complaint I have was that the zipper kept bunching up at the end. Nothing crazy, but my friends kept fixing it for me as they were the ones that saw it.

Very comfortable dress yet looked elegant!
I should have got a 2 to see how that would have fit, but I enjoyed this dress. I wish I would have taken more photos though. I rented a pink and gold ring that I wore with it as well. I have a pretty flat tummy. but had to make sure I sucked it in for photos because I noticed in a pic that it looked like I was pregnant. I could just be a little crazy...Great dress though! As always when I rent the runway, I received many compliments. :)

Pretty in Pink
Luv this dress! Based on other reviews, I ordered down a size and the fit was great. I ate and drank alot all night and the dress was comfy. It never felt tight and I felt the material was very forgiving. The only downside to this dress is that the colors in the pics online were slightly different that the dress when it arrived. I wore rose gold accessories and red heels so it wasn't a big deal, just not exactly what I was expecting. Also, the dress I received was totally open at the top, not a keyhole as shown in the picture. It looked okay, again not what I was expecting.

It does run big, so definitely go a size smaller, but I did not have any trouble with a tummy pooch (too much fabric). The dress fit perfectly and I got tons of compliments.

Fun dress but not a head turner
I wore this for my 24th birthday and it was nice, I got compliments but I wouldn't rent it again. I'm 5'4 and I've rented a few dresses from RTR before so I am pretty good about understanding lengths and how things will look. I was a little disappointed at the length, it was right above my knee and I have pretty long legs for my body. It also looks different in the photo but not terrible. Like I said, i got compliments so it did its job, but I wouldn't order it again.

It looked like it would have been a stunning dress. The fabric was really heavy and with my height it came down to my knees. I ended up wearing the other dress I rented.

beautiful colorway, but fit and design is a miss
i had originally ordered the herve leger temptation rising dress, but the previous renter didn't return it on time, so RTR sent this dress as a substitute (it's a more expensive rental, so thank you RTR!). the colors were similar and it looked cute, so i thought i'd give it a shot. i usually wear an 8, but the 6 fit (the distance between shoulders are the most fitted part of the dress) and it's quite stretchy, so if you are nervous about anything fitting your middle or hips, it's very accommodating. that said, i feel like this dress is trying to be figure-flattering (lots of ruching, stretchy fabric, bright and fun colors), but it's also kind of frumpy. it's just long enough to feel a touch longer than a flirty cocktail or party dress should be, the fabric around the front does not do any favors (there was a real opportunity to use the colors as an hourglass-making optical illusion, and they missed it), and the fabric is a thin enough that the area around the belly shows every bump and lump (the worst area to highlight detail). i hate to say it, but i think this dress only works truly well for the super skinny or the pregnant—anything in between is sort of a crapshoot.

This was a very nice dress! Comfy and fit well!
I didn't end up wearing this dress because I fell in love with the back-up dress that ordered and went with that instead. This dress fit well-- I could of worn the size 2 or the size 0 - both fit, the zero was a bit tighter and shorter.
