Love, love, love this dress! Hid all the imperfections I hate and highlighted the right stuff!

Sorry I didn't take a full body shot... I forgot. Basically I was trying to hide my post baby belly bulge and my not so sexy arms. This dress was made it all possible. The 6 fit but I ended up wearing the 8 because it was more comfortable. It was a little big in the bust line (I am a 36C/B) but not noticeable due to the lace. If you want a dress that is sassy and comfortable this is perfect!

Wore this to a Rodeo Gala and it was perfect. I added a red flower sass it up a little. Got tons of compliments and looked great with cowboy boots. Fabric has no stretch and fit like a glove. Be sure to use double sided tape to keep in place for the off the shoulder look. Awesome!

Wore this for Thanksgiving and it was perfect. There are little details to this dress that make it so nice, and I love the off the shoulders look (it can also be worn on the shoulders as well). Overall, the dress really looked great and I would rent it again!

Customer Service at RTR is Unmatched!
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
I rented a size 10 with a backup size 12 since other reviewers said the dress didn't have any stretch. When I got the dresses, I found the 10 to be too large in the waist/hip area and a belt just made the dress look bunched up. I have lost about 18 lbs in the past 6 months and am in-between sizes. I called RTR the Friday evening before my Saturday event and they were able to overnight a size 8 to me which arrived before 12 noon and fit PERFECTLY! My husband loved this dress as much as I did and even asked if I could buy it or at least rent it again :-).

I rented this after I had already rented the white version for my wedding rehearsal dinner. Since I had already worn it in a different color I knew it would fit. I recieved tons of compliments from girls- but the best was all of the looks my husband gave me. A perfect dress for a dressy summer wedding. Love. I forgot to take a pic in the black!

Beautiful and Classy!!!
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size

I needed to find a dress for a funeral...it had to be "special" because it was for my father-in-law. I simply didn't have time to go to the mall to find the perfect dress. This was my first time using RTR. Everything went smoothly. No issues at all. The dress was shipped exactly when they said it would. I ordered a size 4 and 6. I first tried the 4 on. (which I normally wear) It fit, however I decided to wear the 6 because I felt I needed just alittle more room to move. This dress does not give any sort of stretch so I would recommend ordering your normal size and one size larger. Just in case.You will definately turn heads in the room with this dress:)

I wore this for a dinner/birthday date with my boyfriend. Overall great dress.. He loved it!
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
I chose "True to Size" because that's mostly true. Whatever size you normally wear, you will probably wear in this dress. (If you're bootylicious like me, DON'T go smaller.. I also had a size 2 shipped and that was laughable! lol) I have an athletic shape and the bottom was just a bit snug.. It has ZERO stretch. However, the top was very roomy/strechy. I'm a 34D and had plenty room in the bust area without looking slouchy. I think this dress would be perfect for someone who has that "inverted triangle" shape. (Broad shoulders and/or a full bust and small hips and thighs.) Even if you have a smaller bust I think it would be fine up top. The off the shoulder look is so sexy, but classy!

I wore this fabulous dress to a cowboy-themed event and it was perfect. It was definitely perfect for the occasion. I would highly recommend this dress. I rented it in black and white and had trouble deciding which to wear! The details on the dress such as the lace were beautiful. I would highly recommend it!

Loved this dress....lightweight, super comfy material perfect for a hot, humid August wedding. I felt like it was pretty true to size, if you want it a tiny bit longer or loser in the middle go up 1 size. Definitely recommend!

Great dress with the perfect combination of classy and sexy!
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
The size 6 fit great...the 8 was way too big. I am typically a 4 to 6. This is a great dress for busty girls. The lace is gorgeous and the fabric is beautifu. It is true, there is not much "give" to the dress. That is what makes it flattering, but probably not great for dancing. I would definitely rent again and will rent it in white.

Overall fit: True to Size

I loved this dress. I wore it to my friends wedding which had a slightly western theme, and it was perfect. The dress was snug (but true to size I think) and very flattering on my curves. I loved the sleeves and the lace detail. It was an extremely pretty dress with a touch of sass from the off the shoulder. I would rent it again.

It just arrived today as the backup to the other dress I chose and it's hard to pick which one to wear! I love this dress. It's a bit long but when I'm 9 inches shorter than the model, it's no wonder. But it's not too long at all. Don't know which yet I'll go with but this is an awesome dress.

Classic and flattering.
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The dress was in perfect condition and I found it to be true to size. It didn't hug my body too tightly and had plenty of room in the bust which can sometimes be an issue for me. I was a little nervous that the off-the-shoulder neckline would be awkward, but it turned out to be very comfortable and didn't fall down or ride up. I also think it made the dress more unique. The lace was very pretty. I would definitely recommend this dress for a wedding or any semi-formal occasion!

Only works if it's a perfect fit...
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I have eyed this dress since it first appeared on the site however never rented it before. Although the photo shows it to be look fitted, it actually is a very tailored dress with no elastic in the fabric, so if it's too big, it just sags on you and the smaller size was a tad uncomfortable. The fabric is quite thick and was cut very hippy (I'm fairly hip heavy but there was quite a bit of extra fabric). The top part is lovely and if it were separates, I think it would work better. I should have read the reviews more closely - a prior renter mentioned that it had no give. Disappointing...

So feminine, sexy and fits like a glove.
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I was required to wear black as a personal attendant at a friends wedding; I usually choose color and uniqueness over the standard LBD, but this dress was unforgettable. I am a curvy, short hourglass shape and I felt like this dress was made for me. I usually wear a 4-6; I originally got this as the back up dress in a 4 which fit, just a little snug around my behind and hips, but nothing that was too uncomfortable or inappropriate; just understand that this dress has absolutely zero stretch so crazy dance moves were out of the question. At 5' 3" the length of the skirt hit about an inch above the knee, great length as it balanced out the sexy snug fit with enough fabric to make it classy and not skanky. I am busty and get nervous about having to wear a strapless bra as it usually make the girls look flat or saggy, but the lace overlay across the shoulders and chest is enough fabric to disguise whatever flaws are going on underneath without adding any bulky volume, laying nicely over the bust. Overall I was very impressed, got a ton of compliments, felt totally unique and beautiful. I would recommend ordering up a size due to the the fact that this fabric has no stretch whatsoever and could be pose a challenge just getting it on if not careful.

Classic little black dress
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
I ordered this dress for a friend's wedding. Since I was in the wedding as a lector of the Scripture, I didn't want to have something super short or tight. I ordered an 8, and had to rush order a 6 because I felt like the 8 sagged in the chest and would look better in a smaller size. This dress has no stretch to it so there is 'built in hips' so to speak. If you order too large you will look 'hippier' than desired. Overall the smaller size 6 was perfect length, fit, and style for the occasion. The bit of lace gave it a delicate feel, while i was still able to feel sexy in a little black dress.

Great dress
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
This dress is really cute the lace detail is really pretty. Although I could have worn the 6, I usually wear a 4, the top gives you plenty of room without looking big in either size but the skirt runs tight and to be comfortable I would go a size up. So I chose the 8 because I was going to do a lot of walking.
