Such a Chic Dress!

This dress was really chic! I loved the colors of this dress and I loved the lace detail at the bottom of the skirt. This dress hit me about 3-4 inches above my knee, and I found that it was really flattering. I would definitely recommend wearing a short slip under the skirt of the dress, because the lace can be a little itchy. If you are bigger busted, I would definitely recommend sizing up for your backup size because it is pretty fitted.

Dancing all night in front of the statue of liberty with the RTR team!

Such a hot dress - especially for tall and busty types. The skirt has no stretch so was a bit tight around my tummy (i carry all weight in my stomach). I would recommend that people with big hips steer clear of this dress. Still loved the dress despite any tightness. The color of the skirt is also to die for!

This dress choice was so perfect for the event. Sexy and classy, and everyone complimented me. They even said how skinny I looked! I'd wear it every night if I could!

This dress made me look, and more importantly, fee like a million bucks! It was perfect for a night out on the town. I ordered both the 4 and 6 and although I'm normally a 4, I needed the 6 because the dress is tight around the booty and thighs. I'm small chested, so the top fit better in the 4 on me, but I would definitely order up a size if you have a bustier chest and a bigger booty. I would highly recommend this dress!

perfect party dress

i absolutely loved this dress! the lace at the bottom gave it a fun, flirty touch. and i can't wait to rent it again. i ordered a 4 and 6 because past reviews said it was snug in the hips but the 4 worked perfectly. The top is a lil large, so you might need a padded bra if you have a smaller chest.

Mostly true to size...

I LOVE this dress, but I was so sad that I wasn't able to get quite the right fit. The skirt has very little give, so if you carry most of your weight in your hips, I would buy the next size up. I typically wear a 6 or 8, but I suspect that I'm really between an 8 and 10 in this dress. I'm going to give it another shot in a few weeks because I really want to wear it!

Cute but tight. Ultimately, I couldn't wear it because it was too small for me.

Bachelorette Party

The dress is nice, but it didn't fit me right. I'm curvy on the bottom, so I ordered a size up just in case. In the end, I wore the 10 which fit on the bottom but was too big for me on the top. I would recommend this dress for someone who isn't very curvy.

Great Dress!

I rented this dress for my 21st birthday and it was a cute dress but it didn't stretch as much as I thought it would around my hips so I ended up wearing a different dress. But it was still really cute and the customer service I received regarding the rental was amazing!

Fun for a Night Out!

I rented this dress for a Bachelorette Party in Atlantic City. It was perfect for the event! I would say this runs pretty true to size, however I do have a not-existant backside so I would recommend ladies who have more to possibly rent a size up.

Cute but I bit uncomfortable

I am a 6/8 depending on the dress. The 8 was too big in the armpit area. It did that thing where the material sags. And I have a big bust for my height/size, so if you are smaller than a 34DD and you wear an 8, you will have the same problem. I wore the 6 instead and it fit better. It was a little tight but that was a result of the kind of material it is made out of. But beauty is pain, so I lived through it and looked great. The lace on the bottom is super cute. Although from the picture of the model, I couldn't tell how see through the skirt was. There is a black piece of material that covers the important bits, but about half way down the blue skirt, that black material stops and it is just the blue with lace underneath. It isn't super see through, because no one else seemed to notice but me. Over all, very cute. I wore it to a work party and got a lot of compliments without being too "sexy" for a work function.

This was my first rental and it was a Monday event. When I received the dress, the return date was scheduled for Monday. I called customer service and they were amazing and so helpful. Needless to say, I was able to wear this amazing dress. Thanks!

This dress is as cute in person as it is in the pictures. True to size. I'm 5"7 and I was worried it may be too short but it wasn't.

Not the perfect fit :(

I rented this dress for a bachlorette party. Unfortunately, I was not able to wear it. I typically wear a size 2, but found the bottom of this dress to be extremely snugg. From reading the other reviews I did order a size larger as my backup, but unfortunately the top on the 4 was way too big. I tend to wear a smaller size on my top than bottom so I think this dress would best fit someone with no curves as the fabric is very tight and does not give you any wiggle room.

Customer service at RTR went above and beyond helping me get the right size in time for my event!

I normally wear a 10 in dresses too accommodate having a larger bust. However the 10 in this dress was HUGE in the hips and tummy (I could grab at least 3 inches of extra fabric on the sides of my hips.) It made me look bigger than I actually am because the sides don't lay flat or mold to your body (not stretchy material) they just kind of stuck out. So I opted to wear the 8, which fit great from the waist down but was uncomfortably tight in the chest (I am a 36DD). Absolutely loved the blue color in the skirt and the lace detail at the bottom. This was my first RTR experience and I will definitely be renting again, just not this particular dress.

party review

I rented this dress to wear to a party and ended up changing my mind. The top was more formal than i expected as it was silk (my fault) but what I was really surprised about was the fit of the skirt. It almost looked like a bell on my body, not flattering or form fitting.

After my initial Sachin + Babi dress did not work out, Emily M. was a great help in finding me a replacement for a bachelorette party I had upcoming. The new dress was shipped to my hotel and worked out perfectly!

Really cute dress! I wore this to a bachelorette party in Miami a few months ago, and it worked perfectly. The material does not have much give on the bottom, so I went a size up after the first dress I ordered from Sachin + Babi did not work out.

I rented this dress for Fashion's Night Out in NYC and definitely felt fashionable. The dress is pretty comfortable and the blue color really pops.

Way too big

I had read multiple reviews saying not to rent this dress if you had considerable hips or a butt ... but I decided to anyway. I rented 1 size larger than I typically do based on these reviews, and the 6 was SWIMMING on me all over. I attempted to belt it to see if that would salvage it, but the bottom half has structure that didn't allow it to lay flat. I think I would have LOVED this dress had it fit ... maybe I'll try to rent either the 2 or 4 next time!

I didn't wear it. Nor the size 6 too small in the waste.

5'3-5'4 the waist and the top bunched becuase my torso wasn't long enough. The product of the dress is gorgeous, but just didn't seem to work on my body type.

Flattering + Form-fitting = Perfection!

Loved this dress! The blue color is stunning and I was obsessed with the black lace detail peeking out under the hem. The top part is a nice black silk that's very breathable and comfortable. I wore this dress to a bachelorette party, but it would be great for any cocktail party or birthday party. Got lots of compliments at the party and when the photos went up on Facebook later! Some people warned against it being a little tight against the hips. I didn't find it snug at all, although I am pretty straight up and down. It fit me well, but I would size up for your back-up size.

Not as flattering as I thought it would be.

It was still a cute dress and very different. I received lots of compliments on the dress, but the fit of the top was a little off. It should have been a little more low cut to make it more flattering and the cut seemed to be a bit off. I loved the bottom though...great detail and really different.

Celebrating a special event while decked out in an amazing dress!

I rented this dress for a bachelorette party and was very happy with the look and quality. The blue skirt really pops and the lace is a nice touch. The extra bonus was opening the RTR box to find a brand new dress w/ the tags still attached :) I typically wear a size 2 in dresses and ended up wearing a 2 in this one as well. The 0 fit much better in the hips although the bust was extremely tight (I'm a 34B), while the 2 was perfect in the bust area but a bit big in the hips. For those of you in between sizes, I definitely recommend that you order 2 sizes so that you can find the best fit for you. Also loved that I was able to wear a racerback bra with this one...no hiking up your strapless on the dance floor!

One of the more casual looks from RTR!

I love this dress! Although the blouse was a little large, the skirt fit my hips like a glove. Parisian Cabaret is a perfect name for this dress because the skirt's texture gives it a luxe and antiquated feel. Great choice for a first-time renter!

Great dress, but....

I rented this dress for a friends birthday party and I received many compliments. It's comfotable and the fit wasn't so bad. I rented it in a size 0 and I found it to be true to size. While I'm pretty petite I have curves and this dress flattened out my chest a litle bit. Also, it felt a little tight around my hip area. I tried going a size up, but that was just too big. In short, if you have a body similar to the model in the picture or have a small chest, you can probably pull this dress of comfortably. If you are slightly bigger on top and in the backside, the dress will still fit ok, but comfort wise you might not like it.

Getting to wear something new and different on my birthday!

Really fun dress, perfect for a girls night out or birthday. The fit of the skirt is slightly narrow and the material doesn't stretch so you may want to order up a size for the back up.

It's a cute dress, but the fit is weird.

While the dress is attractive and on trend, it does not fit well. It fit me in the bottom, although it does weird things at the waist. It made me look like i had a pooch. Also, the top was WAY too tight for me. Sadly I had to return. I would only recommend unless you're rail thin with NO curves.

Loved it

I wore this in Vegas and loved it. It was so cute, totally appropriate but not hoochy. It works great with a racerback bra. The bottom is more fitted so definitely wear shapewear if necessary. It is a little longer on me than the model (go figure), since I'm 5'5".

Very flattering & cute dress

I really loved this dress. I usually wear a 4, sometimes 6. Both sizes fit but I went with the tighter size 4 because it was more flattering. It was snug all over, if I had a bigger bust the 4 wouldn't have fit. The dress was a little worn down from previous rentals but it still looked good. I would definitely use this service again in the future, they make it so easy.

Fits really well and great cut to show off your figure. I like the lace on the bottom to add that extra touch to the dress. Love the color combo of black and Sapphire blue.

Pretty dress, but not for long torso

I rented this for my husband's b-day party. Beautiful dress & color, but disappointed in the fit & unfortunately I couldn't wear it. For me, the top in the size 6 fit just right, but the hips were a tad too small; the size 8 top was too big, but the hips fit OK. There is no stretch, so you get what you get. But the biggest problem was the waistline...it fell way too high above my waist. I do have a long torso (but not freakishly long), so if you are short-waisted, the waist would probably hit you just right. I think you would have to have just the right figure proportions for this dress to fit you perfectly.

Runs SMALL, not flattering

I rented this dress for a weekend bash; however, was disappointed because both sizes did not fit. I'm noticing that silk dresses are made smaller than others, and unfortunately, could not wear either one for my party. I loved the color and the details, but does not flatter the midsection if that is where one is concerned. I wish this could have worked..looking forward to next rental! :) xoxo

Beautiful dress & great color -- Perfect for any occasion!

I wore this dress for a rehearsal dinner and I got tons of compliments! I've rented many dresses from RTR and this is the first one I truly wanted to keep as my own! One note on the sizing -- I normally wear a size two, but I probably needed a size zero. Because of the structure of the skirt, it is supposed to hug your hips and it didn't quite do that for me. Either way, I highly recommend this dress!

Lots of compliments, and was able to share with friends how great RTR is!

Runs a little large- I usually wear a 6 or 8 in dresses but recently lost some weight so I ordered a 4 and 6 this time. I'm glad I did because the 6 was too large and a bit poofy in the stomach area, so I went with the 4. Loved the dress and got lots of compliments!

Great fit, comfortable to dance in. Simple and elegant!

Went to a NYE party in this dress and danced all night. Received lots of compliments. I'd definitely recommend this dress for any formal event.
