The ease of having two sizes to choose from.
The fit was pretty loose. I had always worn a 20W in RTR, but having recently lost 25lbs I wasn't sure what size Id be. I rented the 16w and 18w. The 16w fit great, there was even a little extra room around the waist. The dress was very comfortable and so fun to be in. I got lots of compliments and felt beautiful! It was the perfect dress for my best friends bridal shower.

Dress is prettier in person!!
This dress was absolutely gorgeous! It does run true to size. I'm very busty so I felt a little constricted in the 16, but I was still able to wear it with little to no problems. The skirt has a lot of flow, couldn't help myself but to twirl as much as possible. :) I will definitely order it again, I'll order the next size up though.

Perfect for a garden wedding!
This dress was so comfortable and fits pretty true to size. I loved the color and the flowy skirt made it fun for dancing as well. Got lots of compliments and wish I could keep it in my closet.

Beautiful Dress, just too big!
This dress was very big on top. I'm a 40D and it was falling off me. RTR came to my rescue and sent me a new dress though! I would definitely rent again just in a smaller size. The dress was very pretty!

Well, I didn't wear it....
This is the dress I originally wanted to order for a KY derby party. My husband suggested I ordered another (I loved it), and i got this as a free backup when the back up to the other dress was out of stock. Thanks RTR - that is a cool policy. Anyway, the dress that I loved in line, not so much IRL. I'm on the border between 14 being a little small on me and 14W being too big. This was a little too big, esp in the bust , and I am chesty. The gathered waist didn't flatter either maybe it hit me In the wrong spot. I would suggest, if you rent, wear heels. Because of where this W size dress hits - it would look a little fuddy duddy with heels. I think on the right body, the side print would be slimming, which is why I was attracted.

The color and pattern were breathtaking!
The fit was spot on. I loved that the lining was form fitting as to not add additional bulk to the dress. Plus, I could spin on the dance floor and not worry about showing off more than I wanted to!

didn't have my size but I took a chance and rented the bigger one. Unfortunately it didn't work out.
Rented this and another dress for a wedding, LOVED this dress but it was too big (there wasn't any smaller available) so I had to use the other one unfortunately.

Wore it at a shower. Love the flow of the skirt. It was easy to move in and comfortable
It hit me right below the knee and I am on the taller side. I would also recommend wearing heels To make a better silhouette.

Beautiful fabric. Bodice has essentially no shape. Not the most flattering on. Ended up wearing to church under a spring long jacket.

This dress is beautiful, feels beautiful and made me feel beautiful!
I felt like I was wearing red in a sea of black! The coral of this dress is very complimentary to every skin tone, it popped out amongst all the black dresses. The skirt is very flowy and although pleated (usually a no-no for plus sizes); it looked very nice.

Perfect bridal shower dress!
Loved this dress! It was incredibly comfortable and went with the garden bridal shower theme perfect. I had ordered both the 16 and the 14 and ended up wearing the 14. It was still slightly big and I probably could have tried the 12!

Beautiful, great colors
I loved this dress! I wore it for my sister's wedding rehearsal and dinner. Super cute and fun, I got compliments all night. (Sorry the pic is awkward, I'm walking down a step but it was the best pic of the dress!) I ordered an 18w and a 20w. Usually I wear an 18 but I get one bigger just in case. I liked the way the top of the 18 fit but the bottom of the 20. I have a bigger behind and the zipper kept buckling and getting folded up into the lining of the dress. I was fixing it all night. I opted for the smaller size because it looked better on the top and from the front, which is where most pictures are taken anyway. I do have large boobs, it was a little tight in this area but my 40G bust did fit. Regardless of this dress, if you're reading this and on the fence about renting- DO IT! It's so much fun, so easy and makes you feel so fancy and glamorous. Having a dress just sent to you?! Who does that? Fabulous women, that's who. I love this service and highly recommend it.

Fun color perfect summer dress for summer wedding
It was a little bit long and was a little big, but unfortunately I picked a larger size for my backup, definitely go with your normal size and a size down. It was very light weight and perfect for a 95 degree wedding.

I got so many compliments!
The dress was awesome to dance in. Despite being windy, I wasn't worried about exposure because there was a built in slip under the dress. I got so many compliments and I loved how bright the florals were. Would totally rent again!

When you don't want to wear black...
The dress fit me well. I'm busty so was worried that I would be squished in and would need to size up but that wasn't an issue at all. I'm 5'7" and the dress hit me right above my knee. I liked the fitted top and the flowy skirt that hid my problem area. I really liked the floral pattern and color.

Perfect dress for a Summer Wedding
This dress is fitted and runs true to size. Lovely for the wedding I was asked to be Matron of Honor for. Super pretty, and I appreciated being able to swap out the accessory in store to the perfect pair of green lucite earrings to match. This service is outstanding for getting your act together in a pinch! The dress received many compliments and I felt really beautiful in it. Would buy this dress if I could.

I wore this dress to a reception. I wanted something a little looser and this was a tad too loose. Colors were gorgeous but the length hit my knees. I would try this again in a smaller size.

Perfect dress for me. Almost didn't want to give it back.
I rented this dress for a destination wedding in Maine with a formal dinner the night before. This was the perfect dress for the night. Light and flowing and fit like a glove. The color is great. I paired with turquoise necklace and shoes and I felt beautiful.

Beautiful dress but not for the high-waisted
This dress arrived exactly as scheduled. I loved the bright orangey coral color. I ordered both the 18W and the 20W. I tried the 18W first and it went right over my head without being unzipped. The pleats fell beautifully and came to just below my knees, which is my preferred length. Unfortunately that was where things got tough. I have a short torso and it was clear this dress was designed with someone taller in mind. My natural waist is fairly high so there was too much extra material on top. The material for top half of the dress was thick, so all the extra material bunched up and bulged out in a pretty unattractive fashion. Usually I'd just fold it over and belt it, but it was so thick and structured that this tactic looked pretty silly. I also found the armholes to be too big on me. I had about 1" of my bra showing. I ultimately returned both sizes without wearing them, but although I was sad that this lovely dress did not work out for me, RTR's excellent customer service left me a satisfied renter regardless. Bottom line: if you're long on top, this might be the dress for you! If you waist is a little closer to your shoulders than your thighs, or if you're on the shorter side in general, I'd give this a miss.

Beautiful print
I wore this for a day christening. I usually wear size 16 so this was a 16w but way too big. It kinda made me look frumpy do I luckily had a matching orange colored belt that I put on to give me a better shape. It still made me look bigger than I was so if you are 16+ I would think twice about this so that you don't look even bigger than your size. I still wore it because I loved the colors and print of it. And was in a jam for a dress!

Well Endowed Ladies, Rejoice!
Me: 200 lbs. size 14 dress and jeans. Bra size: 36N. Yes, N cup. This dress runs big, I have huge boobs, and this was a tad big in that area. It never looked bad and was incredibly comfortable. Didn't pull around the arms, didn't show bra under arms, the back wasn't tight. I would def rent again if it was available in 12 or 10. The wast is fitted but still very large, I would probably need a 10 in the waist area, but it still looked great. The colors were amazing and totally popped in a sea of black attire.

Stylist Review!
This is a great dress for summer! The colors are bright and tropical. It has a nice relaxed fit. It does run a little larger, though, so I would suggest sizing down if you want a more of a snug fit. This style would be great fora more casual event, like a weekend getaway or something like that! The length was a little longer than I expected, so shorter women should be aware of that.

Was too big
This dress runs a large. I could have tried the 14 possibly and I'm usually a 16/18. It was just big and unflattering, but this was a back up dress that was sent to me and I wanted to be safe and ordered the 18. Should have asked for the 16 as well. I just don't think the dress would have looked good on me either way, but the color was very pretty!

Didn't wear. Both the 14 and 16 were too large and a little frumpy on.
Too big. Bust was huge. Might have worked with a belt.

Beautiful and fun floral print!
This dress is lovely -- with its wide shoulder straps and almost boatneck neckline and great knife pleats, it's very elegant and covers well; the print is gorgeous. The colors are more muted than in the picture, looking more coral and sage green. All in all, it is a perfect dress for an outdoor wedding or other event, while also not being too dressy for every day wear. I found the waist hit low on me -- if I owned this dress, I would have had the shoulders shortened, as there is room in the armholes and the whole bodice needed to be an inch shorter or so. The dress does fit loosely.

Was mailed to wrong address
This was my back up dress because my first dress was delayed in shipping by UPS to Michigan and I was flying out from Michigan to Florida. So I had them mail me this dress to Florida but they didnt! They mailed it by accident to Michigan so when I got to Florida I had no dress for my event. This is the second time this has happened. It puts you in a horrible situation when you are out of town, have a tight schedule and have no dress for the event. I tried on the dress when I got back to Michigan and it fit. It had a little extra room but I loved it. Wish I would have had it for the event and in Florida.

The dress is really comfortable but it was so big on me I had no choice but to wear it with a belt. With that said I got a lot of compliments on it and it was a great option to wear for a summer wedding.

Waist and hips too large and torso was too long.
Pretty dress but could not wear out. Torso was about 4 to 6 inches too long for my 5'4" short torso self. Looked very frumpy on due to long torso.
