Impressed my date, and all of his friends
I was definitely over-dressed for the event, but nobody cared and I got so many compliments. Guys and girls alike thought the dress was stunning. No bra needed with this dress, although I also probably could have worn one. The dress also has pockets, which is a trend I'm not fond of, but it was actually really useful and the poof in the dress concealed any awkward phone bulge.

Heads Turned..
I rented this dress for my 21st Birthday. Knowing full well from other reviews that this would run very tight on larger busted women, I decided I was okay with that and went for it. It was true, I had to struggle into this dress a bit, but without a bra the dress was still very supportive, and I felt quite like a celebrity. The material is absolutely beautiful and I was comfortable all night.

Very pretty dress and flattering shape. I got a lot of compliments.
First, don't let the picture of the model fool you. This dress is no where near this short unless you're 5'10"+. I'm 5'1" and it hit just above the knee - perfect for the event. If you don't want to show too much boob, don't pick this dress. My Ta-Ta's were front and center. They looked great, but be prepared for lots of dudes sneaking a peek and lots of chicks giving dirty looks. Of course, this was a cocktail party at an Industry event so perhaps people thought it was a little too much but, hey it was Chicago and I felt great in it! The fabric is a bit thick. I recommend it for a cooler evening. If it had been 85 I would have been boiling.

Honestly, beautiful dress, but...
...there was something about the skirt that didn't make it 'party' enough for me -- it is very full. That said, I was trying to wear it in Vegas so I should have naturally went with a smaller dress if that's what I was looking for. Overall -- very pretty dress, thick / expensive looking fabric, sexy deep V -- better for a winter party, cocktail party, etc. I'm 5'6'' and it was definitely not too short. One fit critique to add is that the rib cage area is quite tight. One in, I was fine, but it was a matter of getting in that was the issue... this is usually not a problem for me with other dresses.

Great party/date night dress!
I'm usually a size 0, but because the zipper on the side of this doesn't zip up all the way (so you have to put the dress on over your head), the size 0 could barely fit over my shoulders. The size 2 turned out to be perfect and I loved the shimmer on this dress! It has the perfect flared skirt... the V neck in the middle was a little too low for my personal taste but fashion tape helped to solve that problem for the most part!

Super figure-flattering!
Great for the support. I didn't even need a bra since it fit so well around the waist. It was a fantastic choice for my friend's bachelorette party! And super comfortable!

Gorgeous fabric, deep V!
I fell in love with this dress online and was a little nervous when I realized it only went up to a size 8 (for dresses that are fitted at the waist but not the hips I'm usually between 8 and 10). I rented it anyway, plus a back-up dress. While this one was VERY tight in the rib cage area, I ended up wearing it and got tons of compliments! With a well-positioned sticky bra, the deep V looked awesome, and I thought the length was perfect. One difficulty was matching it with jewelry, but rose gold works great! If you're sized like me, just be aware that it's pretty tight up top. Loved it otherwise!

Meeting with ananda zing stylist in SoHo!
I loved this dress! It was a nice little surprise to find out it had pockets as well. I loved the fit of the dress in the waist, but I wish the v neck wasn't so deep. If you're chesty I would recommend not wearing a bra. The color was amazing and I received so many compliments. All around, definitely a great dress to rent!

Just wanted to twirl in this one …and of course loved the pockets!
I rented this dress for my birthday dinner this year. The cut of this top is extremely low and slightly challenging if you have a larger chest. Because I choose the 6 even though I have a larger chest it was just hanging a little lower than I would've preferred up top. Also, there isn't much give in the fabric around the ribcage. But, the fabric was gorgeous and I loved that this dress had POCKETS!! All in all no real complaints here, because I have RTR Pro I used my $50 Birthday credit and got this dress along with the adorable Kate Spade 'Age of Innocence' clutch for just $2.12. Happy Birthday to ME! (:

This was perfect for a night out in Vegas. If you can, rent directly from the RTR store there.
Just be prepared - it's very low cut. But oh so fun overall.

Great dress, wrong color.
I ordered this dress for a Formal Dinner thinking it was gold, but it was really cooper. RTR was amazing and sent me a different dress by the next day. I really love this dress though. It is a stunning cut but it is very booby. I'd definitely rent this again for a different event.

A stand-out dress made me feel gorgeous!
This dress fit like a glove and I got so many compliments all night! In the picture on the website I NEVER would have picked it, because it looks kind of plain or ill-fitting. But I went to the store in NY and tried on a lot of dresses, and when I came out in this one my husband's jaw hit the floor. A gorgeous dress that fit perfectly and made me feel like a movie star. Also, super comfortable.

More boobs than the burlesque show we went to see!
Wore this dress for my bachelorette party. I wore the 6 but honestly needed an 8. I typically find that dresses are too small in the bust, and this was no different. I had to wear one of those nu-bras that were super low cut and stick on. Even then, it showed and I had to use fashion tape to make sure nothing popped out. Other than that, the dress was amazing. It was snug on the rib cage but flared out before the tummy so would be extremely flattering if you are self conscience about a tummy bulge. The texture of the fabric and metallic shine make it just flashy enough without being obnoxious. The color is more of a bronze but went well with my fair skin and red hair.

Amazing dress!
Wore this dress out in Vegas and while it could have been a little shorter, the reviews noted that it was a longer dress so I knew what I was getting myself into. Endless compliments all night. Only think I will note that I loved, but others might not, is it really makes your boobs pop. I'm a B at best and this dress made it seem like I was a D cup. Super comfortable, and LOVED the built in pockets. Would for sure rent again.

Perfect Party Dress!!
I had so much fun in this dress! I got so many compliments. I felt glamorous but not too stuffy like I would in an evening gown. I was moving around all night because I was the coordinator at my friends' wedding. The best part of this dress are the pockets! I put everything I needed, including my phone and the bride's handwritten vows, in them. The fit was great but I probably could've used a little more coverage up top or worn a different bra so just a heads up for those of you who are shy or a bustier than most... Overall I loved it! Really the perfect party dress.

One of the most beautiful dresses I've worn!
This dress made me feel like a million bucks. It was fun, comfortable, and fit my body perfectly. This dress has a deep neckline, so you might feel a bit exposed if you have a bigger bust… wear it If you're comfortable with some cleavage showing. I'm short, and the length was perfect, not too long or short. It got tons of compliments all night, mostly because of its unique color and form.

Lots of compliments, pretty fabric, fun to dance in- there were some snags in the dress but you couldn't really tell. A little too deep in front to wear a bra.

Sexy, fun, dress!
This dress was an awesome night dress to make heads turn! It fit snugly, but I ordered the 0 specifically because I didn't want to wear a bra. It's a great material and really doesn't require a bra because it's thick enough and has a deep plunging v-neck. It was a little too short to be classy enough to wear to a nice dinner (but perhaps not for someone a little shorter than me), but I would definitely rent again for a night of dancing!

I got so many compliments!
The dress is really beautiful. It's an amazing color, more purple than in the picture. I wore it to my homecoming dance. Everyone said it looked great. Definitely a sexy, stylish dress without being tight and trashy. The boob situation was easy as I was able to get away with a bra with a bit more of a plunge to the neckline than the usual bra, but didn't have to buy the U plunge bra like I was expecting. I think black shoes look best with this and I personally wore black pointed toe suede pumps. It ran true to size for the most part, but the top was a little more snug than usual. I opted for my usual size that was a little snugger because the skirt looked better. The skirt isn't as full as some of the pictures may lead you to believe. It is just as full as on the model. The length was definitely a non issue. It came to my mid thigh and I'm 5'6". The fabric is a brocade, so it isn't very light but it's not terribly warm either. Overall, hands down would recommend. It was a gorgeous dress for an amazing night.

Perfect amount of sparkle
This dress was a hit! The fabric was great, sparkly but not too shiny. The pockets were a great feature and the length was just right. I would recommend getting the backup dress in a size up if you have a larger bust like me (34DD) because it was pretty tight up top and very cleavage revealing...not a problem for me but be aware! Overall, loved it!

Even More Gorgeous in Person
Like most of the reviewers say, this dress is even prettier in person. I wore this to a charity event called Hilarity for Charity. At first I was a bit reticent to rent this dress because it looks super short on the model. Being 6 feet tall, I thought it might be a tad bit too short. Don't be deceived-- it was not too short at all. The dress is comfortable and I received a lot of compliments on it. I am pretty flat-chested, so I didn't wear a bra with this or even adhesive cups. I'm sure it would look even better for some of my more bustier companions :) Overall, I loved this dress and felt very comfortable in it.

SO Flattering!
I rented two dresses for a futuristic/space-themed wedding, this one and an Herve Leger. I assumed I'd wear the Leger, but ones I tried this one on I couldn't leave it in my closet. It was incredibly flattering, and for a girl with a small chest, it made the girls look spectacular!

The perfect dress for my 25th birthday!
I was able to try this dress on at the Flatiron RTR store before renting. I fell in love instantly! The only slightly negative issue was that there was a small hole in the armpit above the zipper, but it wasn't visible unless I raised my arms above my head. *Larger-chested girls: unless you are totally comfortable having cleavage front and center, do NOT rent this dress. I loved everything about it, but it is not for anyone uncomfortable with having the "girls" on display! I didn't wear a bra, but the dress was fitted enough that it wasn't necessary. Amazing!!!

Stunning color with unique style!
This dress was great for my sorority informal! Perfect to dance in, and I received so many compliments on it. The midsection is pretty fitted, but I wore a size down from what I usually wear. The plunging neckline looks great on even the smallest of chest sizes. Overall a fun, elegant dress that is a crowd pleaser!

Gorgeous, I'm no size 8
If only the dress came one size larger, this would have been perfect. I'm a tall hourglass figure, and though I'm not considered to have a large bust, the girls were trying escape from the dress, and my ribcage was constricted. For those who are a true size 8 or less, this is a fantastic dress. It wasn't too short, and the color was as shown on the model. It's a structured fabric, so don't expect stretch. There was no room for a bra, but plenty of support. Very flattering all around.

Stunning Christmas party dress!!!
I wore this dress to my work semi formal Christmas party and it was a HIT. The subtle sparkle of the fabric wasn't over the top in your face cliche Christmas party bling, but a more sophisticated and stylish way to still add some shine to a holiday party dress. I'm 5'1 and usually wear between a 2 or a 4, but I went with the 2 because I wanted a more fitted look through the waist and chest. The fabric has a little stretch to it, but still maintains a structured look. Usually short dresses tend to be too "long" on my frame, but this one hit a few inches above my knee and was the perfect length. The front V neck is very low, but because of my chest size it was appropriate for a work party. I did end up securing it with a couple pieces of fashion tape because you can't wear it with a bra. That being said, I wouldn't recommend this dress for girls larger than a C cup unless they are comfortable showing some serious cleavage. I got so many compliments (from girls and guys) all night in this dress, and I really was so sad to send it back. Definitely my favorite RTR rental so far. Rent this dress!!

Absolutely stunning for a wonder formal
Wore this for a high school winter dance. Like everything else from RTR, it was gorgeous and fit perfectly. I'd recommend going down one size. Be mindful of your bra choice (if you chose to wear one).
