Retro flair with vivid colors
This is a classic pin up/circa 50's dress. The picture can not do the colors justice. Only complaint/mark off of stars is that it is not forgiving of large chested gals. The cut is forgiving and perfect for larger chest, yet triple D's did not fit in the 16, needed to go up to the 18. Felt like a million and made my husband's face light up.

Got complimented on the dress twice within minutes of arriving.
The dress was very comfortable to wear. The fabric is thick. It would have been too warm for daytime in July, but for evening it was good. The colors are really beautiful. My only wish would have been for a petite length.

Great print & color
I didn't wear this dress. It was my back up option. The fit, cut, print and color were fantastic. The primary reason i didn't chose it was cause of the length. It's longer than it looks in the photo and hit me too low on my calf on my 5"4 frame. It's more midi than tea length even w heels. If it was a few inches shorter it may have won out the other dress

Great friends !
LOVE this dress and was sad to send it back I got a lot of compliments on this dress and will rent it again. - I might even buy it! The colors are true in the picture. I wore a purple wrap with it and some pearls. 38DDDs fit just fine, and the back wasn't too low for a regular bra. This dress is fully lined, so that made it a bit heavy for a summer event (I wouldn't rent it for an outside wedding in August). I was uncertain about the length based on other reviews but with nude wedges it was just fine. Be careful with accessories as I found the fabric a bit catchy on my bracelet.

This dress was the perfect color and perfectly comfortable!
The dress was gorgeous! I couldn't tell from looking at pictures online if I loved the colors, or if they would appear to have bled into one another. Verdict? LOVE. And, although every reviewer says they get tons of compliments, I now believe it. I got no fewer than a dozen compliments on this dress (which I dressed down for the Sunday afternoon wedding with a pair of sandals). The 14W fit me except it was too tight in the bust. I was going to wear it, but I figured I may as well give myself the extra room, so I went with the 16W, which had plenty of room. I wore a traditional bra, so the straps occasionally showed, but that does not always bother me. If that bothers you, I would suggest going without an undergarment or wearing a strapless bra. Overall, this dress was incredibly comfortable and easy to wear. Plus, it has pockets. So, AMAZING. (Just as an fyi, the picture I uploaded is incredibly unflattering because I decided to drink my dinner in the form of tequila and tito's, so . . . by the time I remembered to take a pic, we were home from the wedding and I was 1/2 way to the couch!)

Love the dress, but it was too large for me to wear
I can wear a 14 and the 14w was much too large. It also was long on me. If you're looking for red, this seems more purple/pink to me but some of the print is red. Really liked it but I was swimming in it, including the arm holes.

The perfect dress for a Labor Day wedding in Virginia's wine country.
This Adrianna Papell dress was nothing short of fabulous, and is definitely a head-turner! I was tickled to receive many compliments throughout the night. The fit was perfect. I have a large bust, and chose to go with a size larger than usual (I am a 14W in plus sizing, 16 in standard sizing) for the best fit as I knew this particular fabric would not offer any stretch or give. The colors are gorgeous in person, and are actually deeper than they appear online. I chose rose gold accessories and was very pleased with the overall look. Lastly, the full skirt provides beautiful movement - particularly on the dance floor! My first RTR experience was a pleasure and I am planning to use the service for another wedding in October.

Elegant is the best word to describe it.
Felt extremely girly in this tea length gown for an outdoor wedding. The color of the dress is my favorite. It is even more beautiful in person. Another RTR success.

Gorgeous Colors & Fabric
Great fit, it is pretty long, so if you are short like me (5'3") I would plan to wear heels. My best part is the pockets!

Perfect Fall Garden Wedding Dress
I rented this dress for a garden wedding in Napa at the end of September. The length was great for me (5'8") in wedges (3-4") but I can definitely see how it might be an awkward length for someone shorter. The fabric is very rich and thick. There is also an lining with a bit of tulle. With that, it was great for a slightly cooler night but I would have miserable in the middle of the summer. The neckline is a slight boat neck and the straps did have bra clips or snaps so I had to go strapless. It also has pockets, which we all love. All in all, it is a beautiful dress. I felt very comfortable and pretty all night.

May need to own this one!!
It fits like a glove, gorgeous fabric, it flows beautifully!! Second time renting it first time was for a bridal shower, (I thought it was a bit dressy for the shower). This time was for a wedding (different people). It's such a stunner with the color and so much fun to dance in, it moves beautifully. I just felt gorgeous in it. Wore my hair up and a bit retro.

Nice fabric, runs big.
This was sent as a backup when my preferred dress was not available to ship. Thanks RTR for helping me out - another dress did work! I am a 14/16 top, 16/18 bottom, so usually a true 16 or a 14W fits me great. Based on other reviews, I ordered this as a 16 (not thinking it was really a 16W, because sometimes I think RTR marks any dress larger than a 12 with a W, so it is hard to tell what is a 16 and what is a 16W with any confidence). This dress was HUGE on me. way too big to wear. Also, very long - it does claim to be tea length, so I wasn't surprised it was longer than usual, but it really is a very long dress - I am 5'10 and it was lower-mid calf. Fabric is beautiful. I think if this were my size I would have enjoyed wearing it.

LOVED this dress. Got tons of compliments all night.
Great dress. Very colorful, very elegant and swingy - you could puff it out even more with a petticoat for a 50s or 60s style (it has a layer of tulle under). Ran big, especially in the waist- I'm normally a 14/16, and the 14W was big on me. Very comfy, loved the pockets.

First time trying RTR and I will definitely do this again! Love the dress! Easy process!
I generally wear a 16 or 18 in dresses depending on how it is cut, this one is only fitted around the torso and I got away with a 14W very comfortably. I recommend a strapless bra due to the way this fits on the shoulders. I received so many compliments on this dress! Wore it to a Valentines dinner and dancing event at a vineyard and it was perfect! It moved so pretty as we danced and even has pockets! Love this dress, and if there weren't so many great options to rent, I would have to rent this one again!

Sonya, YOU are the reason I chose to rent this dress! You look absolutely FABULOUS!!! I can't wait til my event so I can strut this hot number! I'm a bit self conscience of my arms though... I'm thinking about a wrap, but not exactly sure what color to get. I know the Product Details say this is red, but it totally looks HOT PINK with some magenta and violet-y purple! All I know is I'm in love! If this pretty diddy fits me like it does you, I will not want to return it. :)

Girls Night Out Fundraiser
I rented this dress for my beautiful mother and she looked gorgeous. We attended a fundraiser event with a floral theme and she got compliments all night long. I loved her gold accents with the dress and she didn't only look great, but she felt great as well.

Got SO many compliments from both friends and complete strangers.
As recommended by other reviewers, I wore a strapless bra -- definitely the right way to go, since I didn't have to worry about adjusting my straps all night long. With the lining, was the right weight for a mid-April evening event in Virginia. Would be too warm for a summer event. Definitely runs big!!

Wore to conference and felt amazing!
I loved this dress and wore it on stage at a conference. It was modest and comfortable and fit perfectly. The only thing that I was bummed about was that one of the pleats ripped because the seam wasn't very strong, maybe from a previous renter?

This dress was so flattering - I felt like I was on the set of Mad Men.
This dress was a little big and I could have likely ordered a size smaller for a better fit, but I threw on a belt with the look and it looked great.

I was able to wear a dress I would never "buy" and get lots of compliments
It needed to be altered to get the straps snug so you don't see my bra so I just wore a pashmina and it was perfect. This picture is end of the night waiting for the car so you can see straps...full figured ladies be careful but it was great AND it had POCKETS! wahoo!

Perfect for a garden wedding!
This is a typical Adrianna Papell fit -- a true 14W with a generous waist and a full-ish skirt to hide/skim hips. And plenty of room through the chest. And pockets. Pockets rock. It was so easy to wear and the dress flared when I twirled, which led to lots of twirling. The main con is that the dress is tea length, which isn't great on me. There were also no tabs to hold bra straps in place.

Fun, vibrant and comfortable party dress!
I ordered the 14W but I'm so glad I got the 16W as my backup! Even though I own another Adrianna Papell dress that fits perfectly in a 14W, the 16W was more comfortable in this style. I don't necessarily think it runs small; it's just that this fabric does not stretch at all. So to err on the side of comfort since I knew I would be out and about for many hours at a black tie gala, I went with the larger size. I got so many compliments- the dress is super flattering. The fit and flare gave me a nice shape and the neckline allowed for a normal bra to be worn. The length was perfect on me (bear in mind I am 5'10'') and showed off my shoes. I chose to accessorize with a statement necklace. I think the high neckline needed a little something extra. Great dress, I was so happy to attend my event in this and will look forward to using RTR for future events!

This dress was a little big for me around the waist but I tied a black sash and made a bow at the back. It looked great with the sash. I should've gotten the 14 in this but the 16 wasn't too bad.

The quality of the dress and colors are amazing.
I gave this dress a three star rating because of fit. I am 5'9" 186 pounds. I am actually a 38DD or 36DDD and there was plenty of room in the bust. The pleats and amount of fabric in the waist add girth. This was my first RTR purchase, and I will definitely rent again but will choose a lighter weight fabric for the future. Great dress if the fit had been right. Also, the service is enjoyable.

My event was unforgettable because I felt that I looked great and I loved what I was wearing.
The fit was great. It was so comfy and very very flattering. The dress hit at around the ankles not calf or below knee but this just made it more formal to me. It also paired well with a great pair of a open toe platform ankle heel. The color is also more deep then bright which also made it better for evening wear. Overall I loved it and will definetly rent again with a different crowd, since I received so many compliments.
