I loved the service of RTR

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress looked a lot more black and white in person than it did on the model and the sizes were huge. I usually wear a six and the four was way too big for me. I ended up not wearing either because the four was so large.

I was nervous to rent from the other reviews, but ended up loving it! It does run big. I usually wear a 4 and worn the 2. It was the very comfortable and wrinkle free all night (which I love!)

Uh oh WAY too big!!!

I rented a 6 and an 8 (my usuals) in this dress. I expected to wear the size up because of my first RTR experience the previous weekend. Had to send it back because the six was big everywhere. Would probably needed a 4, possibly a 2. Cute dress, light material.

Great dress for a little baby bump!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
This dress runs large and definitely worked for a bigger bust. I am in my first trimester, but definitely showing. This dress was very comfortable and flattering for my mini bump. Size down a size or two!

Loved it!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
I usually wear a 4, but when I saw the other reviews this dress seemed to run large. I had to email customer service to add a size 2 to my order. I got such a quick response and both dresses arrived together (2 days early!) . I ended up wearing the 2 and it fit perfectly. I'm only a 34 B cup and the top was fine but would also work for larger cup size. I highly recommend getting a size down from your usual as a backup. The dress was adorable and so flattering... and looked brand new! Great dress and awesome service!

Normally, I would wear a 6. I ended up wearing the 4 in this dress and almost wish I would have had a 2 to try on. It runs very large!! It was very flattering and I got plenty of compliments on it!

Sweet Dress, Hard to Size (Giving up on RTR)

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Other
This dress does in fact run large. I'm usually a 6 but that was huge and so was the 4. I was swimming in the 4 actually. I called Customer Service and asked for a 2 which they were happy to send (Customer Service is AWESOME) but the 2 was wayyyy too tight and then wayyy too short which I couldn't understand. it was almost like it was a Petite. I can never find a happy medium with RTR but I digress. It's a cute dress, nicely made for the most part although the underslip is a little flimsy and has wicked static cling. If you can find your size in this one, it's really a sweet little dress. You can probably get away with a black bra underneath - the sheer part isn't THAT sheer but an strapless or clear strapped bra would be better.

Fun Cute Floral Dress!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
I rented this dress for Derby. It was a great pick! I already had the hat and was looking for something fun/ floral looking to wear in black and white. I thought it fit great, I am usually a 2 in most dresses and it fit perfect. I did have a few extra pounds on me from just giving birth to my first child a month prior to this. So I liked the fact that this had a empire waist. It was a little short for me, and slightly tight in the arms. But that seems to be most of these designer dresses. This was my second time renting from RTR and again things went great!!

What a steal!

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Other
I actually bought this dress and I was so happy how it looked on me. It's a shorter, yet tasteful dress that is so flattering. The lace, the color, and the bow made it so adorable yet grown-up.
