The description of the fit of the dress was accurate. I normally run between a 6-8, 6 on top and 8 on bottom. There is no give to the top of this dress and it said it ran a little small. I ordered an 8 and 10 and the 8 fit me perfectly. Because of the flowing skirt of the dress, there was no issue in how it fit though my hips. This is one of the reasons why I picked it. It was a perfect dress for a wedding to dance around and twirl in circles. Even walking made the dress flow. It was an awesome first experience and I would recommend this dress and this service to anyone (and I did!)!

The reviews were not kidding when they said small in the top. Other than that it was a beautiful dress- but like the reviews said- order up a size if you are larger on top.

Fun and comfortable party dress!

Overall fit: True to Size

This dress was fitted yet comfortable. I added a black belt at the waist just to break up the blue and define my waist better. I loved wearing this dress and the color was so pretty in person! The top is so well fitted that I didn't even have to wear a bra!

I usually wear a 0 or a 2 and I ordered both in case the sizing was weird. I could have worn the 0 and have been fine, but I wanted to be able to breathe all night so I wore the 2. I got so many compliments on the color and cut of the dress and now many of my sorority sisters are planning to rent for RTR. I could not have asked for a better experience!

I wanted to rent this dress in red, but at the last minute the warehouse couldn't fulfill my order. The staff set me up with this dress, and blue was probably the better color on me anyway! This dress is flowy and very princess-esque. If you are athletic or slender this is the dress for you! Its longer than most dance dresses but not in a lame and conservative way. You are going to have the best dress at your event if you order this one.

Beautiful Color, Flowy and Comfortable Dress

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size

The color of this dress was beautiful and I received compliments on it all night. Other reviewers were right, the top portion of the dress was a bit tight, but that would be my only complaint. The length of this dress was just right and I loved the flowy skirt.

Awesome dress to dance in!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
As previously stated by other reviewers, the top of this dress runs small and has zero stretch to it. It was fine for a small-busted girl like myself, but be careful how much padding you plan to wear underneath. This dress is so fun to wear! It's super comfortable and perfect to twirl in! I highly recommend it!

I wore this for an outdoor wedding in spring and it was perfect for the occasion. The color is bold, and the dress twirls when you dance (big perk). I like that this style comes in several colors. As always, I was sad to return. On the fit-I am between a 0 and a 2 most of the time, and the 2 fit perfectly, I could not have gone any smaller. I'm very petite, but have curves and sometimes it's hard to find a good fit. This one was perfect

This dress was beautiful! The picture online doesn't do it justice! The color is so vibrant and it's super flattering. I'm not usually a fan of one shoulder, but I loved this dress! The dress was mainly true to size, but I'd suggest ordering your usual size and one size up. Really comfortable too!

This is so much fun. I loved wearing this dress. It's a beautiful color, so much fun to dance in, and just exquisite. I didn't wear a bra as the dress was tight enough not to need one. It was just so flattering and I got so many compliments. I was nervous about the "Tarzan" look of one shoulder, but it's really wonderful. This is a great dress.

Beautiful Party Dress!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this as a bridesmaid dress for a wedding. I found it to run a little small. I usually order 0/2 as my two sizes, and in this I rented the 2/4 and though I ended up wearing the 2, the 4 would have worked as well. I was REALLY happy with this dress. It is a beautiful, rich, blue color. The material is super soft and expensive feeling. It doesn't wrinkle as easily as most dresses with a chiffon layer. It is super flattering, and flows beautifully. I have nothing bad to say about this dress - definitely a great one for any spring/summer wedding or other fun event!

There is no give in the bodice, so I barely fit! The color and the fabric were both beautiful and flattering. The dress is pretty long even on me, I'm 5'10" and it was almost at my knees.

Comfortable and Flowy

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I tried this dress on in the studio with my MOH for potential bridesmaid dresses. It fit her figure as nicely as it did mine, and we are so opposite. The dress is A LOT darker and richer in color than the image shows. It is a cobalt blue, but still pretty. I did not have to wear a bra with it because it is so tight, and my MOH could NOT zip it up with a bra, but was able to without one. It is definitely snug around the rib cage and bust. I felt more comfortable in the 12, but the stylist said it was too big, and I needed to go down to a 10, which is my normal size. We ended up ordering these for the wedding! I can't wait for all my girls to be donning these dresses!

Perfect dress for a beach wedding!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is a bright, beautiful blue color in person. I wore it a friend's wedding on the beach and it was the perfect style. I loved the length. I'm 5'10 and the dress hit right above my knees. Like so many other reviewers have noted, the top is pretty snug - I didn't even need to wear a bra and everything stayed perfectly in place. I usually wear a 6 so I ordered a 6 and 8. Ended up wearing the 6 mostly because the zipper of the 8 was broken and incredibly hard to zip. Loved the dress overall and would definitely recommend.

Recieved a ton of compliments-loved everything about this dress. I wore this to a wedding and I was able to dance and move around comfortably. This dress was perfect for the occasion and very comfortable. I am losing weight so I rented a 10 with a 12 as a backup. I was able to wear the 10-it was a perfect fit and I was so comfortable!

Halston is my fave designer!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
Fit was small but that is good, because the size up (which I thought would be baggy) was loose. So I had the option. Zipper is the con. It is difficult to zip. You know it is when the paint on it is worn off before you get to put your hands on it. Didn't need a bra, but then, I am not flat chested nor am I well-endowed. I'm just enough. So it worked for me, sizing down. I imagine you'd have to go TWO sizes up if you are well endowed. the dress is just THAT fitted on top. Well made/construction wise. Compliments on it all night. The color (blue) was popular at the wedding I was at last nite but my dress was definitely something different. Not run-of-the-mill.

Loved this back-up as much as my first choice... so I wore them both!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
This was my back-up (rented the Shoshana Liz Love Dot in a size 4), and I ended up liking it enough to wear it for one of the two performances. The reader comments were all accurate, down to the somewhat frustrating zipper. I am small on the top, and I can see why some reviewers struggled to fit in the top -- it's cut very slim. Also, the straight waist line didn't fall at the thinnest part of my waist (it was about 2" lower), which was my ONLY complaint. The color is fabulous, and the fabric has great movement. I got as many compliments on this as I did on my first choice... glad I got to wear them both! GREAT first RTR experience!!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small

I wore this dress to a fall wedding, and it was perfect! I am on the short side so it hit right above my knee, which was a good length for a wedding. The only problem with the dress is the bust, it runs extremely small up top!! I had to wear a size up than I normally do. The color popped, and the dress was extremely comfortable all night for dancing! Definitely one of my favorite dresses that I have rented.

Runs a tad bit small as other commenters have mentioned. But, didn't need a bra with it, and once zipped in it fit like a glove and was incredibly comfortable! I managed to eat, drink and dance the night away without feeling like it was restricting my movements. Got a million compliments on the color, which is truly a gorgeous shade of blue.

Loved it!!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
This was my first time renting, and it was an awesome experience. Everyone thought I was crazy for renting a dress instead of buying, but I loved it! I ordered an 8 and a 10 (I normally wear an 8). The 8 would not zip up because of my boobs, so I had to use the 10, which fit great. It wasn't too tight on my chest at all. The zipper is definitely hard to zip up though, I couldn't do it by myself. It came on time, with all the stuff I needed to return it and even some free goodies! I got tons of compliments on the dress the whole night at the wedding we attended. I will definitely be renting again!! Another note--in this picture, it looked like I was sweating a lot because it's dark around my underarms, but it was actually pretty cool that night and I wasn't sweating at all. I think it just might be the shadow on the folds of the dress.

I wore it to prom and it was great! I usually wear a 10 and got a 10 and a 12. The 10 was just right, though the bust was really tight so I didn't wear a bra. I'm only a 34B so definitely size up if you have a large bust. The only thing I would change is that it is a little long. It was fine since I am 5'10" but I would imagine some issues for someone who is 5'2".

Great dress for dancing; definitely size up

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I'm really glad I read the reviews. I sized up from my normal dress sizes and was glad I did. The size 4 gave me enough room for my large chest and fit without any issues. The zip was a bit tricky to zip the last couple inches, so I had a friend assist. Other than the zip issue, I loved this great. The color was bright and great for a summer wedding. The skirt was super light and flowy--great for hitting the dance floor. I'd definitely rent this again in this color--or one of the other two!

Beautiful color and comfortable dress.

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I liked this dress but I didn't love it. The color is beautiful and it was overall very comfortable and easy to move in. It's true that it runs small, I wore a size larger than usual. The bust fit perfectly, but the torso was a bit long that led to bunching on the sides and skirt made my bottom half look wider than usual. The zipper can be very tricky, so get a friend to help you with the last two inches.
