I got so many compliments on this dress & I felt so beautiful wearing it!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
The fabric is really unique & is very high quality. I don't recommend wearing this dress somewhere you plan on dancing a lot. It tends to turn & slip down. I regret not using the fashion tape to keep it in place. I was constantly tugging it up all night & I wore the smaller size. It looked very cute in pictures though!

Bit too much for the 'ladies'

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Very nice dress, great color, construction, length and the bodice was great....except my chest was a bit too large and there was considerable overflow and by considerable I mean I looked like a cartoon character.....Jessica Rabbit in a cocktail dress. Ladies, if you have a very large chest compared to your waist, this will not work. Unless that's the look you're going for...

Great color and cut

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
The color of this dress looks richer in person. The cut is great-- I liked how the subtle sweetheart neckline enhanced my not-so-ample bust. My only complaint is that the boning in the bodice kind of poked into my sides-- as a result of this, I wore my backup dress, as I was going to be in it for hours.

Great color - sizing an issue

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
In general, I'm a size 6 -- however, my chest often makes me have to size up to an 8 (oh, breasts... they are a gift and a curse). When I use RTR, I read the reviews on the dresses, but almost always end up going with a 6, and having an 8 as a backup. I wish I'd done an 8/10 combo. This dress fit perfectly except when it came to the bust. Way. Too. Tight. I kind of cringe looking at photos of myself from the wedding I wore this to, because I just looked so.. smushed. So, for those ample-chested ladies, when in doubt, definitely size up one, maybe too sizes. I will say, however, that the color is amazing, and did get me a lot of compliments.

This dress is so hot! I may have to rent it again!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Rented the dress for a work Christmas party but seriously under-estimated the sex factor! So I wore a little black bolero with it and it still looked great! And I should explain, I ordered the 6 and the 4 since I am usually a 6 (but I think that may be limited by my hips) Since the skirt is flared and the dress is strapless, I opted for the 4 to keep it up all night. I looked and felt like a million bucks! Can't wait to rent this again and let the sexy show!

I loved the look and style of this dress and was looking forward to wearing this fun, flirty dress; unfortunately, everything fit great except for the bust. I was overflowing and decided it wasn't quiiiiiite appropriate to wear. Major bummer, but RTR was super accommodating and I look forward to renting again soon!

Great bold color!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The two best things about this dress were the color (a bold, deep burnt orange) and that it had pockets - SCORE! You will definitely stand out in this dress! I wore a strapless bra underneath and did not have to pull this dress up once - it stayed put and I have to say I had some amazing cleavage, LOL. I paired it with a black and gold chunky necklace and gold pumps and got lots of compliments. If you have a larger chest, I would definitely order a size up. The bottom is full and fun and great for dancing.

I wore this for a rehearsal dinner. It was perfect, very comfortable and stayed put (I wasn't constantly pulling up the top like you sometimes must do in strapless dresses). I typically wear either a 4 or a 6 and had to wear the 6.

The fit and flare is super cute. Fits great...binding in top might be a little uncomfortable for a bigger bust. But overall I thought I was taking a chance and was more than pleasantly surprised....would rent again. Also customer service with RTR was fantastic!

Got tons of compliments all night

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size

This dress was awesome. The fabric is heavier and stiff- almost like a grosgrain ribbon if you can picture that? Its very well constructed and loved the boning in the top. The dress stayed up all night even while dancing. (I didn't even have to wear a bra b/c of the thickness of the material!) I would definitely recommend.

The 0 was too big for me to wear. I didn't have a strapless bra to wear with it, but I'm not sure that would have made a difference for the fit.

The 4 was way too snug in the bust and too big in the waist. Not an ideal dress for thin, busty girls.

Loved the dress. I was worried it would be too short, but it was perfect actually. The only complaint was the boning stuck me, but it seemed a protective piece of fabric was missing to prevent such a thing from happening.

I don't have any full pictures in the dress but I LOVED it. Honestly, I have considering just buying it. I belted it with a simple black belt and wore tights with a back seam to bring attention to the back zipper. IN LOVE with this dress. Would definitely rent again.

I ended up wearing my backup dress because this was just not flattering. I own a similar (summer-y) dress with a similar neckline that makes my boobs (size 34A) look AMAZING, but this dress just didn't do it for me. It under-emphasized my boobs and over-emphasized the bulges under my arms next to my boobs. Not appealing. Great color, fun skirt, but the neckline area just killed it for me. Would look great on someone fuller up top!

Quality made dress, comfortable!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wore this for my company holiday party. I think this dress probably runs true to size but I needed to size up for the bust area, so I wore a size 4, which was my backup size to the size 2 I had ordered. Pretty dress, nice material. It wasn't astounding and the general shape of the dress doesn't create a Wow factor. If you are looking for a safe, pretty dress for an event, this one is great.

My 16-year-old was my sister's bridesmaid and looked absolutely gorgeous! It was a November New York wedding and the color/fit were perfect. My daughter is about 5'5" with a thin, athletic build; small bust and legs that go forever! She wore it with black suede wedges and looked beautiful! (Never got the back-up dress so it's a good thing this one fit!)

I rented this dress for New Years Eve and I really loved it! I feel it fit my body type very well; I loved the skirt flare I did add a black ribbon around the waist to serve as a belt to match the black fabric on the bottom of the skirt. I did not need to wear a bra for my 34 B bust which was nice because strapless bras always slip. I was thrilled with the color of the dress and feel it made a stance in the sea of NYE LBD's :)

Dress cute but hard to wear with smaller bust

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Date
Hard to wear when you have a smaller bust and was in between the 2 and the 4. I went with the 2 so that it didn't flop around on top but was a bit too tight then to move around in. Should have just worn the 4 with a larger bra.

Amazing dress for the price too!

I rented a 6 & 8 and both were too small in the bust area... I was hanging out of it, I am a size 36 D. The dress is great though. I may consider renting a size 10 in the future but it makes me nervous that waste may be too big.

This dress looks more casual in person. It has pockets, which was weird. I thought it accentuated a tummy as opposed to hiding it like some others said. It was OK, would have worked fine, but it did not make me say "wow."

Perfect holiday party dress but too large on me.

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
This dress was perfect for my company Holiday party. I was concerned from some reviews that the fabric would be casual but it really wasn't. It's a nice thicker fabric in red orange that is ribbed, and it has pockets!! Only problem is that a 0 was too large on me on the top half by 1-2 inches. I ended up layering some tanks underneath and wearing a thin black belt to keep it up. Length is fine otherwise. Wish it came in a smaller size! Great shape and color otherwise.

I was hoping from the picture that this dress, although funky and different, was a little more formal. Not the case. It also had no structure on top and for a flat chested girl it wasn't going to work
