Perfect homecoming dress!
Fit very well, neckline isn't too low just enough and was the perfect length

Fashion tape required for bustier women!
Loved the dress, but a little revealing for a bigger bust. Nothing fashion tape couldn't fix! I received compliments from both men and women at the derby party!

Comfortable and flattering
Got this dress last minute after my first choice was damaged. I ended up loving this! So perfect for a winter wedding. Plunge neckline with the longer full skirt made it the perfect balance of classy and sexy. I got tons of compliments. I am 5'4" and the dress hit just above the knee, I loved being able to wear a regular bra. I ate (a lot), drank and danced all night, this dress was awesome!

I got SO many compliments! The color and thicker fabric were perfect for a winter wedding!
The fit was great! I did have some trouble finding sticky boobs that wouldn't show with such a low cut style. With some scissors I made it work :) The length was perfect for my 5'2" height.

Yup!
What I lack in the chest area I make up for in my jeans so this dress flattered both areas. It hugged my ribs showing off my collar bone and bite sized mosquito boobies. It then flowed in to an A cut dress where I could pound down two helpings of the events fried mac ncheese pops with out popping out of my dress. Hells yes to this purple power dress.

I felt like a million bucks!!!
This dress is absolutely gorgeous! As a thick and tall girl, it's hard to find a perfect fit but this dress did it! I ordered an 18 and 20 and wore the 18. The dress is very snug in the waist and bust but I'm on the smaller end up top. I wore a waist cincher as well because going up to the 20 made the top gape under the arms. It felt really great on and I loved the shorter flirty length on my long legs!!

Perfect fit on top if you're not too busty. Floats away right at the troublesome low belly

Great fit, color and true to size! I received so many compliments all night!
Great dress made with high quality fabric. It fit well with my bust but someone larger than a C cup may be harder. Fits very tight around the rib cage but felt great on. The color was true to the picture for renting.

Low cut but still classy
This dress worked perfect for the cocktail party I attended. Both the 8&10 fit well, but went with the 8 due to the low cut. The tighter too kept the girls in a little better. My only complaint was that the metal part in the was stretched out and kept sliding down to reveal a little more than I wanted, like my bra.

I didn't have to wear a bra with the dress which was great!
Definitely runs on the larger side for me because I have a small bust. I usually wear a 4 in dresses but since this dress is loose on the bottom, the 2 fit pretty comfortably.

The waist is very fitted. I would have been more comfortable in the 8 but it looked too large. Even so, the 6 was very flattering and comfortable enough. Loved it with pearls!

Made for the winter, pretty warm
I really liked the dress but it was to heavy and thick to wear in a warm state (Florida). I decided to wear my backup dress instead. Otherwise the dress was great. Loved the fit!

Wore to a friend's milestone birthday party. Was slightly tight in the waist for me, but no one paid attention to that because of the cut of the top! Very sexy but elegant.

Great color and fit!
I rented this for a New Orleans wedding. As usual, the dress arrived right on time and returning was a breeze. The dress itself fit great-I will say that I have a relatively modest bust size (34B), and the girls were on display much more than I am used to. It was fun for a night, though - just keep this in mind, wear a plunge-style bra and/or invest in some fashion tape. :) I will definitely rent this again when I'm in a saucy frame of mind!

Beautiful and effortless dress!
I'm normally a 6, but a size up was definitely necessary!! It's super tight in the torso! The 8's wire between the boobs was falling down, but a quick pin job fixed that!! And the waist is absolutely at the perfect spot to hide anything below the belly button. I added a gold and lilac necklace, flats and a wrap and it was perfect for an evening wedding!

Perfect fit
This dress was sent as a backup. Runs true to size. Very flattering cut. Pleasantly surprised by the full length gold zipper down the back. Skirt is a bit fuller than expected.

Really wanted to like this dress.
Love the style of this dress. It's so cute on the rack. I didn't wear it because it totally flattened out my boobs and it looked very weird. I think this dress would be better suited for smaller-chested women.

This dress was great. I wore it to a wedding shower. Little low cut but with a piece of purple lace it was perfect. I got many compliments throughout the day.

Gorgeous color!
Overall a great dress. Only problem was I felt this runs long in the torso. I don't usually have this problem, but with both the 2 & 4 the dress gapped around my arms and the midsection bunched. Great color and nice fabric.

Fun and Flirty!
I loved the twirl to this dress when dancing. It fit perfectly minus the dip in the neck line. It kinda popped out a little much so I pinned it back to the center of my bra. It's a pretty dress and I highly recommend it!

Flattering fit
I am reliably a size 4, but the size 6 was a bit tight. I recommend going up one size. Love the cut, color and quality! I'm 5'10, and it was not too short! I'm thin on top but have hips. This dress worked well for me.

Eye-catcher!
The simple outline of this dress paired with the deep color and dramatic neckline make it stand out without being too loud. I am a curvier shape and underestimated my size for my first RTR, so it fit a bit tight, but I'm sure the next size up would have been perfect. I'm very pleased with how I looked and felt in this dress, and I received several compliments. Great dress overall.

This dress was perfect!
This dress was amazing. From the color, to the fit, to the spin factor! I wore it to an outdoor rustic wedding and got so many compliments on it! The bust line is low, but you can still wear a bra; or tape without one - the material is thick enough. I ordered a 4 and a 6. The 4 was a little tight throughout the rib cage, so I went with the 6 in order to be more comfortable through the evening. I loved it!

Cute party dress!
The fit was a little small in the waist, so I went up a size, but the bust was too big. I had a Sunday event (no time to change dresses) so I put on a bra meant to be seen with a plunge dress. The flare at the hips is perfect to hide a tummy.

Perfect dress for a spring/summer wedding
I had so much fun dancing the night away in this dress. The shirt was long enough to not worry about flashing people while dancing. My only complaint is that I felt like I was pulling it up all night. The top part was not tight enough up top and kept slipping down through the night. Overall a great dress though

Love this dress!!!
I got two sizes, a 4 and a 6 after seeing all of the "it runs small" reviews. The 4 actually fit me perfectly and I didn't feel the tightness in the ribs that other girls felt. Thick material, which got a little hot for an outside summer wedding, but was great because it never wrinkled. I wore a regular bra, but had to keep pushing it down in the front - definitely get tape to keep the low neckline secure! Great dress and would definitely rent again

This dress was perfect for a southern June wedding. It is low cut. So if you're busty, this dress might now be for you. I got tons of compliments and I absolutely loved the color and fit. Would definitely rent again. True to size.

Love love loved the dress!
Be aware it shows a lot of cleavage. As a 32D I had to wear a bra. I wore a regular bra, but you can wear no bra and still get away with it - just your choice if you want the support or not. The dress is light weight.

Awesome experience!
I am just about 6 foot tall, so I was a little skeptical about renting a dress from RTR. I read all the "tall girl" reviews and took a leap of faith! So glad I did, bc the dress was absolutely wonderful! The color was gorgeous and the length was perfect. I have 5 more weddings this year and I'll be using RTR for all of them!!

Pretty, but lots of chest
I liked this dress, but it was a little on the showy/cleavage-y side for me to be 100% comfortable at a summer wedding. It may be more appropriate for a cocktail party or sexy date than a wedding. On one hand, it gave me some cleavage (which is quite rare), but I also felt a little exposed. I am usually between a 4 and a 6, and I went with the 4 for this dress, as the 6 was a little too baggy/gap-y on top. The 4 was tight in the waist and a little hard to get zipped, but fine once I had it on; as mentioned, a little showy in the top, and I used some fashion tape to keep my bra from showing. The length was fine even for a tall lady, and it was a little shorter in front than back, which gives an interesting silhouette. The color is nice and rich, and the skirt was pouffy in the right places and was fun to twirl in.

Great first RTR experience
This dress was a replacement for my first choice. RTR was so great about the exchange, they even overnighted this one to my hotel! I wore an 8 in this dress. The rib cage was tight like a few others mentioned and the top was a little gappy. I didn't wear a bra, but it's possible to wear one with this dress. Overall, the dress was fun for a night, but I probably wouldn't rent again.

The best twirling!
Absolutely loved this dress. True to size to even slightly big. Was large on top for me, but I have a very small chest so that's not exactly news, and I just wore a padded bra with it. Got tons of compliments all night, especially when my fiancé and I were tearing it up on the dance floor! Would definitely rent again.

Great color but fit didn't work for me
Loved the color of this dress. I am in between sizes, usually 12 or 14 (I'm 5'3" 160lbs 36D) but only a 12 and 10 were available. The 12 zipped... But was way to tight in the waist. The fabric has no stretch. Also the cut is extremely low and I didn't think it appropriate for the wedding I was attending.
