Beautiful dress!!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I wore this for my 18th birthday dinner and a friend's orchestra performance. I love that the straps are adjustable because without that feature the scoop back wouldn't have fit right. There is a tulle under layer that can be a little itchy but it wasn't a problem. The color and pattern make this a perfect dress for spring or summer. I would recommend wearing a "sticky bra" because the back goes very low. Its hard to tell from the picture but the skirt part is pleated in a way that makes it bubble out so be careful with the wind! Overall, I'm very happy with this dress.

The dress has a great back and adjustable straps but it was so puffy to wear under my graduation gown. It was also very long. I would recommend getting a size or even two smaller.

Great dress!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size

I loved the dress, the only issue that I had was that the back was a little bit low cut (you probably should wear a sticky bra) and because of this, the straps wouldn't stay up on my shoulders. The straps are adjustable and I had them at the tightest that they could be but they still kept falling down. Otherwise, I really liked the way the dress fit. There is some netting under the skirt of the dress which gives it a little flair and it looks really cute and bouncy, but the netting was a little bit scratchy and uncomfortable. Overall, the fit ran true to size and the dress looked adorable for the horse race that I attended.

Loved this dress, but had it's challenges!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
I loved this dress from the moment I saw it pop up on new arrivals and knew I had to have it for the Preakness! There were no reviews at all b/c it was so new, the stylist looked up other dresses by the same designer to see how they were running. She said small so I got a 6 and 8 when I would have typically used a 4 and 6. The 6 fit fine in the ribcage which was a concern but the straps were not laying right at all. No matter how you adjusted them they didn't seem to stay on properly. Neither size made a difference on the straps and that was annoying. I loved it so much that I decided to make it work. I fashion taped the back of the straps but honestly that didn't work out well. I also couldn't wear a bra, but not b/c of the back b/c I had a backless bra. The sticky bra I had came up too high for the front scoop neck and therefore you could see the top of the cups no matter what I did. I went without but I wasn't really happy about that b/c I lacked shape. Received a ton of compliments but I wouldn't rent it again b/c of the various challenges.

Definitely an odd fitting dress. Had to adjust the straps a few times during the shower. Love the tulle in the skirt and the back is amazing. The straps were the only thing I had to worry about during the event. Wore with nude wedges & pearls.

This dress was so fun to wear! I received many compliments. The only issue I will point out (other reviewers have said the same) is that the straps don't fit well. It was also a little bit up top, but that's not a bad problem to have. Overall, I absolutely loved this dress! It was hot at the wedding, so it was nice and airy.

Super cute for my bridal shower

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
This dress was super cute and very comfortable, and the best part was how thin it made me look from the side! A very flattering dress, and if you're smaller up top like I am, there is really no need for a bra (cause who wants to mess with those sticky bras anyway). I typically wear a 6, but was able to wear the 4- the only real difference (for me) was that the top fit a little better. My only complaint- like everyone else- is the straps. Even on the tightest setting they weren't tight enough BUT it wasn't enough to make it completely uncomfortable to wear.

I absolutely loved the dress! The back is stunning and gives it a little bit of sexiness while staying sleek and appropriate for a wedding. I'm a tall girl (5'11") so I also worry about the length of dresses, but it was perfect, coming slightly longer in back. As everyone else has said, the straps were a slight problem as they slip off easily, but I just used some fashion tape to keep them in place on my shoulders and it stayed all night!

Fun dress for dancing the night away!

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size

Super cute and flattering dress!!! It was a great length and fit - which is hard to find when you are 6' tall! Only con is that you have to make the straps are pretty tight since you have such a low back in order to hold the dress up. Got compliments all night! Not as belled out as it looks in the picture, which is a positive thing in my opinion. Loved it and had fun dancing in it!!

Was way too big on me and was glad I ordered another dress just in case that one didn't work out. The print is very pretty but just didn't fit at all in any way. Maybe if it came in a 00 it would of been a fit. Basically, it was a pretty dress however if you're a small framed girl it's not meant for you.

It fit really well on my flat chest. The straps are adjustable so that helps with them sliding off but just as other reviewers said - it makes you stand up straighter while wearing to keep it up. Loved it and wanted to keep it!

I intended on wearing a bra, but didn't. Used Hollywood tape under the front side of the straps and along the back to keep the dress from slipping. No accessories needed (other than my wedding rings) because really, the dress speaks for itself. Paired it with ivory open toe pumps.

I wore this out one night. I felt like the front was opening a little bit too much and I had to keep adjusting the straps when they'd fall off my shoulders. The tulle did itch me around the waist a bit too.

The dress I originally rented was damaged so this was a backup dress. I ended up not wearing it because no matter what I tried, it was so ill-fitting. The back came down too low, the sides were too open and I felt like my boobs we're going to pop out with every movement. No amount of fashion tape could make it fit. Beautiful dress but not for me. Might fit on ladies with a bigger chest though.

Pretty but not practical

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Other
Very nice soft blue with little white clouds. The shape is quite flattering with the high waist and full skirt. Makes your legs seem miles longer. However, with the completely open back, the straps had an issue with staying on my shoulders. The straps are adjustable, but even so, the top is cut much lower than proper for a daytime dress. If I lean forward, or lift my arms, or stand in any way other than with my shoulders squared back, I risk flashing everyone in my presence. There is no good way to even wear a cami or something to cover the cleavage since the back is totally open. All in all, I loved taking pictures with it on in my bedroom, but returned it without wearing it out in public.

Flirty dress!

Overall fit: True to Size

The dress is super cute! There are a little tulle underneath the skirt so it puffs nicely. It wasn't apparent to me when I rented it that you NEED a backless bra with this dress. I'm sure I could've made the straps stay on with some fabric tape, but the dress did not look right without enough "support" in the front if you know what i mean. I ended up not wearing this dress because the wedding is this weekend but it's not warm enough for a backless dress, until next time!

Besides the straps issues, the dress looked phenomenal

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size

The dress was gorgeous and looked amazing on..as long as I wasn't moving my arms. The straps were a huge pain. A lot of the reviews were by smaller chested women who said the straps were loose and kept falling. I didn't think this would be an issue for me since I am full chested, yet the straps kept slipping down and needed constant readjusting. Eventually I found a ribbon and tied the straps together in a sort of racer back.

Beautiful dress but the fit is terrible, the straps kept falling off even with fashion tape, had to worry about it the whole time. The waist area was also a bit large on me, wish it had fit tighter. Wore a tutu under to make the bottom a bit more poofy, overall OK dress, not great - not terrible

This dress is adorable. The low back makes it so you can't wear a regular bra, but a stick on would work. I went braless, but the long straps add another wrench to the equation. I had to use a few strips of fashion tape to keep the straps up and avoid flashing people. That being said, the back is just the perfect amount of sexy while the skirt is poofy to balance it out. So cute.

I rented this for a Kentucky Derby party, and it was the perfect choice! As other reviewers have noted, the straps have a tendency to slip, but I didn't find it that bothersome. The low back is so stunning, and the full skirt made me feel like a princess! I wore the size 0 and the top was still a little bit big, so I would recommend sizing down for your backup.

I wore this dress to a birthday party but was totally underwhelmed with the quality of the dress. The zipper wouldn't stay up ( but he dress fit perfectly, wasn't too small). Also, it looked like the one strap had been restitched but the stitching was done wrong. The poofiness of the dress was not like in the photo since it had been used so much. I adored the low back of the dress. Just think it was a little worn to be sending to rental costumers.

Tons of compliments!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
This dress looked adorable and I was given tons of compliments throughout the night. Fun for dancing but definitely have to be careful of bending over! I wore it with the petal nipple covers due to the back. I would have liked to give this dress 5 stars but I am giving it 3 for two main reasons. 1 - I think this dress has been over-rented. The size 6 was a whole shade lighter than the size 4, which made it look worn out. Luckily for me the 4 fit better. One of the straps had some fraying, but it was not very noticeable. 2 - Again due to over-renting, the straps kept getting longer all night. I had them on the tightest they went but they would continually slide to a looser spot. I loved this dress but I would not rent it again.

The 50's flattering style, oh! And the back!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I kept reading that this dress ran large so I ordered a 4 and a 6 (6 being my usual size). It was shorter than I expected and the 4, while it fit nicely, was too short for my taste. That being said, the 6 was just fine so I'd say this was relatively true to size for me. I'll echo everyone else's sentiment that the straps are the most annoying part of this dress as they do not stay up. I used fabric tape to no avail (and, a lot of it). It was a good reminder of my posture though. I would say that it was worth it. I got a ton of compliments and it was perfect for a summer wedding. I wore nude wedges to keep with the lighter color, but dolled it up with some bright red lipstick and a peach pashmina. It was a very cute, 50s look. I also wore a chunky necklace to add a bit of flare.

This dress was amazing!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
This was my first RTR rental and I will definitely be coming back! I wore it for a friend's graduation and it transitioned beautifully from day wear (with a sweater) to evening (open back!). It runs slightly large-I usually wear a 12 but the 10 fit perfectly. RTR even included three strips of fashion tape to hold the straps in place, which made it much easier to wear. I had no complaints AT ALL from my rental-the whole experience was amazing.
