Great night out at Fenway! Who knows what creative black tie means, but this dress worked for me!
Fantastic dress that I wore to a "creative" black tie event at Fenway. The color is amazing. It wasn't terribly comfortable, but only because my waist is proportionally larger compared to the rest of me. i.e. My upper body and hips are probably a size 2 but my waist is more like a 6...My compromise is a 4, but again that can lead to dresses being tight, especially when the fit is around the natural waist like this dress. So, it was cutting into me a bit, but Spanx helped that issue. I'm sure it would be very comfortable for anyone without the same problem. Also, it is not one of those strapless dresses that feels like it is going to fall down the whole night - totally stays in place. The material is really pretty. Pictures came out great. I highly recommend this dress.

Festive, fun, flattering!
Wore this to an "Emerald City" themed party. The bodice is so nice - it stayed up all night without one tug of the dress. I didn't wear a bra; you don't really need one with how structured the bodice is. The waist was a little snug on me as there is no stretch in the fabric and the zipper is tough to close, but I wore it for hours and wasn't uncomfortable.

Perfect dress for the holiday season!
This dress caught my eye in October for my company holiday party in December. The color is beautiful and I love the flowing material. I rented a 0 and a 2 and I preferred the fit of the 0 on the bottom, but the fit of the 2 on the top. I ended up wearing the 2. If only they could be merged together! The only negative I have about this dress is the zipper. Thank god my boyfriend was there to zip it up for me, otherwise, I don't know what I would have done. We literally had to use pliers to get it zipped up. Not because it was too small, but because the zipper would stop mid way and would not budge. So a word to the next renter, make sure you have someone to help you zip this dress up.

Lovely color good for petite bodies.
This dress was a lovely color green. I was worried about it looking like more of a Spring dress, but the color was perfect for a Christmas party. I am a 32A, 112lbs, pear/athletic shaped, and 5'2'' and the dress was right at my knee. I ordered the 4 with a 2 as backup, and the 2 fit nicely. Both dresses do have trouble with zipping around the mid-point as if the zippers have been stressed in the past and there is something sharp sticking out of the size 2 on the top of the right side. I had to tape myself to keep from being irritated. These were minor things (and the reason for 4 stars instead of 5) and the outside of both dresses still looked new.

I got quite a few compliments from this dress.
Great fit in the top. Even though I'm pretty flat chested the dress held up against gravity even with my insane dance moves. I really love this color.

Beautiful color!
Overall I loved this dress. The fit and color were great, and it was structured well enough on top that I didn't need to wear a bra. Unfortunately I didn't get a picture without a sweater covering the top of the dress, but it was very flattering and would really show off toned shoulders and arms!

Couldnt be more comfortable going to junior prom without a date!
The dress was beautiful, loved the color and cut. It was very flattering on my body type however I wish it was just a tad shorter. This dress also comes in a floor length version that I tried on in-store and I absolutely loved it. I definitely recommend this dress for any occasion! Also a nice pair of gold heels were a great touch!

Gorgeous dress!
I wore this for a formal event. My size wasn't available (usually size 2), but the size 4 fit just as well with a larger strapless bra! The color is absolutely stunning and I got compliments on it all night! Only giving 4 stars because the eyelet hook on the back was broken.

Fun dress in a great color!
Pros - great color, loved the flowing skirt (made for easy, comfortable dancing), lightweight material perfect for hot summer weather Cons - there was some poking in the bodice area (couldn't figure out exactly what was causing it). It was a little uncomfortable at first, but i got used to it. I preferred not to have a strapless dress (to avoid yanking it up all night), but by the time i ordered this was the best option available. In the end this yanking issue wasn't as bad as I feared.

This dress was fun to wear and very flattering.
The fit of this dress was about what I expected. I generally wear anything from a 0 to 4 depending on cut. I ordered the 0 and the 2 and opted for the 2 since the neckline of the 0 tended to dig. The dress was flattering on my high waist and I received many compliments. The major downside, as has been noted by other reviewers, is the zipper. There is no way anyone can zip themselves into this dress. My husband actually developed a blister on his finger from helping me try them on. The zipping difficulties are independent of the size worn.

I was going to a beautiful wedding in NOLA and looking for something lightweight.
This was a backup to the backup I was sent, because my original choice was unavailable and I didn't care for the backup that was chosen for me. I really loved the color and style. The one drawback to the dress was that I couldn't get the zipper to pull past the seam at the waist, even on the hanger. I was disappointed that I couldn't wear this dress, as it was lightweight and a pretty color, really a great fit for the occasion.

Cute dress!
I am 5'5, 140 pounds and a 34B (with hips and butt) and the size 6 fit like a glove! If you have hips and a butt and are looking for something that wont make them look larger this dress is for you! My only complaint is that the boning in the dress was coming out of the top so it kept stabbing me and hurt by the end of the night. Otherwise it was pretty comfortable.

It was a beautiful early September wedding in Maine
The dress was great! I LOVED the color and it fit true to size. Like a lot of others have mentioned, you need at least 3 hands to zip the dress up. But the fit was comfortable - I have a pretty big chest and I didn't feel like I was tugging it up too much (and I didn't wear a bra). After dinner, the band around the midsection felt a little snug but I danced all of that right off! Overall, I absolutely loved the dress and would definitely rent it again.

Perfect for an outdoor wedding!
I LOVED this dress! The color was phenomenal, the fit was perfect and I didn't need to wear a bra, which is always a bonus. I didn't have the problems that other people mentioned with the whalebones poking into me, and I danced for several hours at a wedding. I will say that the zipper is kind of a challenge (I don't understand why dress makers continue to use these zippers -- they always have a problem at seams), but not impossible. I've got a fairly wide rib cage, and the waist didn't feel too tight at all. Can't recommend enough!

Great color dress for a summer wedding!
I rented this dress for a summer wedding at a country club. I wore my regular size and it fit perfectly. I also rented the necklace to match, which was a great statement piece with this fun and flirty dress. Paired with nude heels, it was a fabulous outfit!!

The color really popped for this urban, fall wedding.
This worked well for fall wedding in Chicago. I got countless compliments on the color and fit. I definitely felt confident yet comfortable. I would not recommend wearing for temperatures below 55-60 degrees. I was a little chilly for the outdoor pictures. Make sure you have a girlfriend/boyfriend to zip you up. The zipper was not faulty, but on both sizes I ordered was tricky where the fabric was more dense.

Loved the dress! Definitely recommend it.
I loved the dress and received a lot of compliments. The dress is more deep emerald in color than it appeared in the pictures. The sweetheart top is very flattering. It was comfortable and stayed up even though I had some extra room in the bust area. I ordered the dress in size 4 and 6. I'm usually a size 4, but I have broad shoulders so I couldn't get the size 4 zipped at the top. The zipper on the size 6 was extremely difficult to zip and looked as if had been replaced. My husband didn't think he was going to be able to zip it but we finally got it.

Beautiful dress, horrible zipper!
This dress was gorgeous, and I absolutely loved the style and color. It was perfect for a Christmas party with black tights and a black blazer. Unfortunately, the previous reviewers weren't kidding when they said how bad the zipper was. Between me, my boyfriend, and my roommate, none of us could get the zipper to budge past the seam at the waist. It wasn't that the dress was too small - if anything, it was a little loose up top - but it just couldn't make it past that point. I wound up having to pin it instead. Good thing it was cool enough to need a jacket! Aside from that, I loved it and received many compliments.

This dress was wonderful! I wore it to our holiday work party and it was the perfect color and style
The bodice part was tight and the zipper was a little difficult to work with, but otherwise it was a great dress for a night of dancing at a party. I was a bit concerned that it would be too short for my 6'1" frame, but it fell at a perfect length right above the knee that was still acceptable for a work event.

Cute Dress - Would Rent again in a different size
This dress really did fit true to size (and my typical size is a 12), but when it comes to strapless dresses, I feel like they "cut" under my underarms a little and don't look great, so I do need to go one size larger to accommodate that problem. This size 12 dress was sent as a backup when my original rental couldn't be sent, and the 14 wasn't available for me to try, so I ended up wearing another dress, but I would rent this again in the future in the 14! The picture I attached doesn't do the color of the dress justice - it's actually an emerald green that looks more like the color in the official RTR photo - the lighting in the restroom at work wasn't great when I tried on the dress.

Didn't wear it but it's a nice dress
This was sent to me as a replacement for a dress that was unavailable. It's a nice dress and I might rent it for a spring/summer event sometime. But this was a Christmas party & I just felt overall the dress was too summery for the occasion. I'm a 36DD and there is enough structure in the top of this dress that going braless would be a reasonable option.

Fit was true to size. Really happy with the way the bust fit, I didn't have to constantly pull it up all night! I layered it with a crop cardigan for a fall wedding. It was perfect and fun!!! Did not want to send it back.

Rented for Christmas Day
This dress was incredibly small on me. I rented it for Christmas Day and because it was a holiday, I couldn't call to have another dress overnighted to me so I ended up paying for a dress that I couldn't wear. The color is really pretty in person, but to be honest the dress looks more like a bridesmaids summer dress than a dress that would've been appropriate for a christmas party. I wear a size 12 in clothes, and the 14 was impossible to zip up in the back. There must have been at least 5 inches of space between the zippers. My husband tried but it just wasn't going to happen. Oh well!
HannahJanuary 22, 2016
For future reference, if a dress doesn't fit and you can't get a new one in time, you can always call customer service and they'll give you a credit to use on a future rental, rather than just having to pay for a dress you couldn't wear.

Beautiful dress.
The top felt a bit uncomfortable, but it looked good. It fit like a comfortable glove through the middle though, and the length was perfect -- a bit above the knee, but not so short that I had to be cognizant of it throughout the reception. The snugness up top had more to do with how I am built than how the dress is made. I am extremely top heavy, with measurements most designers are not designing for. More often than not I have to have dresses altered because when I fit for the top I am swimming in the bottom. Overall, I was pleased with this find. I didn't have any trouble with the dress zipper when the dress was off. My date struggled to get it zipped and hooked on me, but again, I think it was because that area was pushing max capacity.

I was sent a floor length size 0, which I couldn't even zip because of a broken/flawed zipper. I wore the size 2 which was big but it worked and I really loved it's perfect length. The color is amazing!

Loved the color. Vibrant without being too much.
The zipper was a little tough to zip in the middle because of the seam, but that is my only complaint. I could have worn 2 or 4, but the 2 fit better up top because I have a smaller rib cage. Loved the dress.

I went to a wedding for my boyfriend's friend and he was in the wedding.
I loved this dress and I would probably wear it again. The only issue that I had was the bodice was too large for my small chest, but it was hardly noticeable.

Loved the color and felt great in it!
Runs pretty true to size -- only issue I had was that the boning in the bodice felt like it might have started poking through a bit and was a little uncomfortable. Overall, though, I loved this dress. The color is a brighter kelly green than it looks in pictures. I have a typical pear shape, so strapless dresses that are tight on top and then flow work GREAT for me. I felt very slim!

The dress fit like a glove. The length was great. The color was great. I didn't have to wear a bra which was nice. The only complaint (like other reviews) was the zipper was a little finicky. Love the look and got so many compliments. Will definitely rent again maybe in another color next time.

Shows off your waist, and bust, and is very forgiving around the hips. I personally needed to wear a strapless bra with it, but I'm sure many can go braless. The color is also gorgeous! :) Definitely worth trying it out

Gorgeous, joyful wedding under the redwoods in northern CA
I could have squeezed into the 6 if I had wanted to be uncomfortable all night, but in the 8, I was totally comfortable for dancing all night. This dress wasn't a total knockout, but it was cute, comfortable, and I got lots of compliments.

Lovely dress, just not comfortable in the waist area
This is a great dress that I got as a backup. I loved the color and cut. It hit my waist alittle lower than I would have liked and the ribbing poked me just a bit. It runs true to size and fits a large chest well. I would definitely recommend it, but I liked my other pick better.

Worn too much
I originally rented another dress for my cousins bridal shower. They sent this as a replacement. I did not wear it because it was way too dressy. I tried it on to send it back in case I would like to rent this specifically for another event i have coming up. I am between a 6 and 8 and the 6 was good. However, the bodice that holds the boobs was worn. The wiring was off. Great color though..
