Who doesn't love wearing a tutu?

"Wow" - that's pretty much the first reaction I got. I felt absolutely beautiful in this dress. Cons: the under slip is super short. It barely covered my hips. Do not bend over. I repeat: do NOT bend over. The tulle skirt is also rather sheer. One cannot wear Spanx. Pros: the corset will lift the girls when you sit down. The corset is rather soft, so one can breathe easily. This dress is perfect for those of us with pear shaped figures!

Gorgeous! I received so many compliments! paired it w/ studded Sam Edelman booties, LOVE!

It fits true to size, however, the top part is slightly smaller than it should be. There isn't a hook and eye at the top, so if you have someone to help you zip up, then use them. I figured it out on my own, but it takes a little work. It's comfortable and very pretty and girlie, I loved wearing it!

I wore this to a masquerade party and felt amazing, got so many compliments!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
The size 8 was too small and didn't zip all the way up, but the 10 was perfect! I was afraid that it was going to be too short but the fullness of the tulle made up for the length. It was the perfect dress for the night! The only downside is that the lining attached to the inner layers of tulle is cream-colored, so if you look too close it looks a little like a flaw. Overall, a fantastic dress!

Perfect dress for the night...

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I rent this dress for the Halloween party. It was perfect for the night. I got tons of compliments, but I would not rent it for other occasions. The dress itself is pretty girly and a little too young for me to wear to other parties. The top part is little small ( and I have a very small chest), you will probably need help zip it up. The other downside is that the lining attached to the inner layers of tulle is cream-colored, so if you look too close it looks a little like a flaw. Overall, I am happy with the rental, it was great choice for my event.

Classy and Unique!!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I was completely in love with this dress since I first saw it. Seeing how others said it runs small, I ordered a 4 and 6. BIG MISTAKE.The 4 fit fine,with a few uncomfortable bulges here and there but the 6 was huge.Having a C bust,cleavage is pretty much in the package with this dress, but it was ultimately fine and wasn't over the top considering the classy essence.I wore this to homecoming and it held up the whole night through all my jumping and dancing.The skirt is a big let down though. Yes, it's poofy,but it has barely any layers underneath,so you can see these visible tears of black mesh sewed to a nude underskirt.It looks unfinished to me,but it's unnoticable to the public really. Most of the reviews say if you're under 5'5, the length may be a problem, but I'm a comfortable 5'3 and I wore 3inch heels, and the dress looked fine on me.It came just at the knee and was flattering. Perhaps, it would look more complementary on someone who is tall and slim, but then again, doesn't everything?The one thing that I DIDN'T like was the constant jabbing into my waist.While I was dancing, this discomfort irritated me.I had bruises on my hips for a week after.I also wish this dress had a lace up, corset like top instead of the zipper.This dress can easily outshine you. In other words, the dress can easily wear you, instead of YOU wearing IT. Girls over a full B and up, be aware of cleavage...If you're not comfortable with that, then you won't be with this dress either. ALSo, perhaps I should've listened when the description said this looks best on apple, athletic, and slimmer figures. I'm sure this would look more feminine on them.This was just a whole lot of woman for me.Got tons of compliments and definitely looked classier and more elegant than a lot of the other girls there. I went simple with the accessories.If I would've bought this dress, I definitely would've gotten it altered to my body.All and all, this is a 3.5.

I'm a photographer & this dress was PERFECT on my client! She looked & felt like a star!

The dress fit perfectly & was great quality! I had actually ordered a different dress for my client to wear, but was returned to RTR in poor condition, so they sent me this AND another dress that were the most similar to the dress I originally rented. Customer service is fantastic, renting is easy, and returning the dress is even easier! Just make sure not to damage your dress so that others can enjoy the same dress you did.

I wore this dress to night club event in NYC and it was perfect! Comfortable, fun and flattering! The boning on the bodice was sturdy and supportive and the tutu bottom was light and adorable. I gave this dress 4 instead of 5 stars because I had some issues with the zipper getting stuck.

Perfect Party Dress.

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wore this dress for Law School Prom and it was perfect. It is a big dress and very young looking but that was perfect for me. The top is slightly tight, but not having a large bust, it was not a problem for me. The inner lining is nude, as others have commented and several people did point it out as a possible defect, but it didn't show up in picture or bother me. The lining would be a bit short on taller girls. Overall, I loved the dress and would rent it again!

Size worn: 6

I normally wear a 4, but based on other comments I got a 6 as my back up size and ended up wearing it. I had a little trouble with the zipper, but otherwise loved everything about this dress. Also looked great with my tiara and sash :-) I would definitely consider renting this again.

The moment she saw this dress even in Ivory she wanted it

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
The dress fitted great from her waist down. She is very small in her chest and I felt that if I went a smaller size it would have been to tight around her waist. She loved the dress when she first saw it and did not want to look at anything different. My Sister in Texas told me about the website. I will even for myself order if I have something special to dress up for. I have told several people about the website. Please share this on your website and she would make a beautiful model for RTR. Love you all and thanks so much.

The dress is even more beautiful in person! However, I would recommend if you have breasts to get a size up from your usual. I usually wear a 4 but it would've been a little easier to breath in a 6.

Rented for engagement party and really HATED this dress.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size

The lace fabric on the top was a blue color instead of the black in shows in pictures, and the tool in the back was so thin you could see the under white slip layer. Material felt cheap and dress looked awful. Thankfully customer service ROCKS and found me a dress for the occasion!

Overall fit: True to Size

This was sent to me as a back up dress as the one I wanted was "damaged beyond repair". It's not something I would've picked for myself because I'm super thin and long. And my friend ordered the white one for the same party :) The skirt is very poofy. The bodice fits well. i just couldn't wear it because I felt like I was too old for such a cute dress. It's more for a young, curvy, 20 something not a skinny 30 something.

I ended up not wearing this dress as it runs SUPER small. My chest simply would not fit in it, and I am a 30 D. Thankfully RTR and their excellent customer service overnighted me a different dress that was also a size 8 and fit me spectacularly!

Fun and fancy!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress for a masquerade rehearsal dinner and got so many compliments. It does have a lining that hugs your hips, so if you have larger hips you may need to go a size up. It was also a little tight in the waist - I normally wear a 2 but I wore the 4 in this dress because of the hips and waist. I am small busted so that meant it stuck out just a little on the top, but for the most part that wasn't noticeable. It fit the theme perfectly and I felt like a princess! I've never worn a dress so poofy and I loved it. I normally get annoyed with strapless dresses because I have to pull them up all night, but I didn't have to do that once with this dress (probably because it was so tight!)

The fit runs small. I am a 4/5. The size 6 fit but was a bit snug. I would recommend you rent a size bigger as an option especially if you have a larger bust. The ballerina style skirt was absolutely beautiful and flattering. I'm 5'7", the skirt length was right on the knee.

Couldn't end up wearing this. There is a very small slip lining under the flare out that just wasn't going to work out. The top runs about one size small, the bottom runs about two sizes too small. Was a beautiful dress, but just too small. :(

The dress has a wonderful full tulle skirt but I couldn't even zip it. I have a full bust and ordered my normal dress size and there was a full 6 inch gap in the back of the dress. Very disappointed in the overall fit of the dress. I would recommend this dress for someone with no larger than a C cup.

Not quite as formal as it looks.

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I did read other reviews before I rented it, but I thought I would take a shot and see if I liked it. I did not. My normal size 10 was too small. And I didn't like that you could see the nude skirt the tulle was attached to. It was a little faded. It would be better as a costume or for a semi formal outdoor type event rather than a red carpet type event. I did not end up wearing it.

Cute but odd fit

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Small

Cute dress on the model. I am a very petite person. I did not read the reviews and everyone said to size up. I should have. It was REALLY tight in the rib cage. Often times even a size 0 is too big for me but this was small. It does not have a hook and eyelet so it took 2 people to get me zipped up. There are cuter dresses out there.

What a bummer.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
My first rental and I'm super disappointed. I'm usually a size 4 or 6 and after reading the reviews, I ordered the 6 and 8. I almost couldn't get the 6 over my hips. The 8 zipped up all the way but it looked horrible. I think it's not a great choice for girls with a booty. The skirt part barely covered my backside completely and the tulle looked ridiculous. In the picture the tulle flares out but when it put it on it was more mushroom shaped. It made me look huge. Seriously could not have looked less flattering.

I absolutely adored this dress, I wore it on new years eve and it was perfect! It definitely ran a little small in the bust area, I would have probably felt more comfortable in a 2 but they were out of that size. Other than that it really is perfect for formal/party attire.

I was expecting this cocktail dress would be too big for her but wow! It turned out really well, she seldom wears dresses opting for jeans and a shirt. But this time she just loved this dress. Now I won't have a hard time convincing her going to parties wearing a cocktail dress. She was kinda reluctant to choose from the website when I asked her to since I was also choosing a cocktail dress for me. But she loved it! Thanks so much RTR. Definitely the go-to-website for renting really lovely dresses!

Overall fit: True to Size

The fitted, lace top perfectly balances the full, tulle skirt for a flirty, feminine edge. Paired with a gold jacquard tuxedo blazer, bright red lips and a bold gold necklace, this ensemble was polished, sassy and glamorous. I wore this to the opening party for the SB International Film Festival and had so many people tell me they thought it was "the" dress of the evening. This was an absolutely amazing dress that made me feel playful and sophisticated. None of the pictures do this dress justice.

This dress is beautiful - I received so many compliments! Before ordering, I was a little apprehensive about whether a tulle-skirted dress with a knitted bodice would look okay, but it totally works. I usually wear a 0, but the bust was too tight, so I wore the 2 instead. The length was a bit shorter than I expected, yet it was still appropriate to wear to a formal event. Overall, I felt amazing in this dress - I wish I owned it!

Really tight, almost had to zip but this dress needed to fit snug! Probably runs more on the small size as size 2 usually is what I wear and this was perfect but just barely! I had read the size reviews before helping my size choices. Lots of fun for my birthday, lots of compliments and felt great:)

Bust is way too small for anyone above a B cup. I had to wear the size 8 to fit my bust (34DD) bu then it was way to big in the waist and din't fall properly on my body. I probably wouldn't choose this designer again for myself as it is not meant to fit my body type.

I wore this dress for my dance team banquet and reviewed so many compliments on it. The only cons to the dress is that if you have a bigger bust its a little tight and the nude slip underneath can look a little odd. Otherwise I adored the dress and was happy with it!
