Great easy dress! Perfect for an afternoon luncheon.

Size worn: L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
The material is beautiful on this dress. I knew it would be very fitted since it was a knit dress. I went with a larger size wanting to be safe with the fit and didn't want it skin tight. I wore it for a confirmation party and wore a navy blazer with it since the dress was short sleeves and it is still chilly out. I loved how it looked and I would definitely rent it again.

Very flattering stripes

Size worn: M
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
Since this dress was a knit, I ordered a larger size than usual and am very glad I did! I wore this to my son's graduation b/c it was the school's colors. The red is really closer to orange w/ a lighter peach highlighting stripe. The stripes seemed to be strategically placed to accent the waist and just under the bust for a slimming effect. I wore w/ Spanx and big gold necklace and gold hoop earrings and nude mid heel sandals. The dress is very well made, classy, but just snug enough to be feminine, not business-like.

I got this dress for an outdoor college graduation ceremony

Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
This dress is great because of its stretchiness. It is made from a thicker more supportive material, but it still manages to be very breatheable, making it perfect for my outdoor ceremony. I thought the horizontal stripes might be too unflattering, but I really thought the dress had a slimming effect. I went with the medium over the large because the larger size tended to ride up more--but both looked relatively the same on me otherwise!

This dress runs small, I sort off figured that , as it was a sweater dress. I received many compliments.

Was a bit warm for summer due to the knit. Could have probably worn a medium but erred ont he side of caution & rented the large. (I'm normally a true US10)

Great cure hugging dress!

Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This dress is very tight, stretchy, and curve hugging. It definitely highlights the curves! I wore this dress to Thanksgiving and since the dress is thick I would recommend it for colder weather. I also liked that it had sleeves, although the sleeves hug the arms as well. As with another reviewer, I found that the smaller size stayed down…the dress rode up more with the larger size. I would recommend this dress to anyone that wants to wear a tight dress while still feeling very covered up!

Simple, curve hugging dress

Love the look of this dress on the RTR site. When the dress arrived, the fabric was awesome-super thick, stretchy high quality! I rented this dress for my sister to wear to breakfast after my wedding. This was her first RTR experience and she is hooked. We have different body types and the dress flattered both of us. When I need a comfy/casual/fun dress for my next function-this will be my go to!

This can be dressed up or down (in a more casual day time setting) and is a luxuriously thick stretchy material. I loved this dress! It fits very nicely and I imagine can look good many different people.

Amazing fabric weight

Size worn: M
Rented for: Vacation
I wish I had a better picture but I posted what I had anyway because the colors are better in person than in the rtr picture in my opinion. This dress was heavy and high quality. I loved wearing it. I didn't need a bra due to the thickness of the material and the sleeves were a great length. Highly recommend!

I usually wear an 8 or 10, the large fit great. I wore to an afternoon ceremony work event. Casual yet chic, trendy yet classy style. Would own if I could!
