Dress a little large in the bust section but is a gorgeous green color
Beautiful color, but a little loose in the bust section. The dress came below the knees so it was perfect for a formal cocktail party

Adorable Dress - awesome color!
This dress got a LOT of wows! My biggest complaint was that the zipper was very difficult to move. But the dress fit well and I loved it!

Comfortable and flattering
It was a great color - not my best idea to be strapless for Mass on Christmas Eve but I still got a lot of compliments. True to size and left plenty of room for overeating

A great dress for a formal event!
The color is fantastic and the bodice details were super nice. The zipper is a pain to do on your own so have someone handy to help out. I found the boning in the bodice was super uncomfortable after a few hours of wearing so be prepared to be slightly uncomfortable later into the evening. I wore it to a wedding in September and it was the perfect ensemble for the event. I would recommend this dress to anyone interested in an original color with a fun flare!

Loved this dress, was very flattering.
It felt a little long but I'm only 4'11" so that might be why. Runs small for sure. I'm usually a size 0 and the 2 fit better.

Elegant and comfortable
Perfect dress for an evening wedding. Lots of compliments and very comfortable. It didn't require spanx or a bra. I am a 34C-D and it was a little big on top, but not so big that i felt it was going to fall down.

Comfortable, easy to dance in, and I felt good.
Top was fairly tight which allowed me to wear without a bra. I consider this a pro for a strapless dress. The dress hung well and had great movement for dancing.

Gorgeous green!
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!

Great color, terrible zipper
My size varies because I have a small waist and a large bust, so I usually wear between a 6 and 10. I ended up wearing the 10, but I probably would have been more comfortable in a 12. This dress is very structured at the top, so if you have a large bust or broad back, size up because there's no give. Also, the zipper is HORRIBLE. It took several minutes for someone to zip me into it. Some of the wires and boning from the dress poked me throughout the night, but eventually I got used to it. The pros are that the color is great, it was flown and pretty for a summer wedding, and it showed off my small waist. I did get a lot of compliments on it. If it wasn't for the zipper, I would consider renting again in a larger size.

Dress for a wedding
Perfect dress for my friends wedding. I received many compliments. Very comfortable and easy to move around in. Zipper was hard to use even when the dress wasn't on my body. Normally wear a 10 but needed to wear the 12

Loved the dress and the colour was amazing!
This was perfect for a summer wedding in DC - nice and cool. I am usually a 10-12, but the 12 was huge and the 10 kept falling down (I'm not small up top, so that's typically not my issue!) As others have noted, the zipper is a pain to zip up but I managed it on my own - you just need patience and maybe some callouses on your fingers.

I didn't end up wearing it because I had two others to choose from.
I was disappointed at how difficult the zipper was to zip up. I would not be able to zip it by myself.

The perfect emerald green dress!
This dress fit beautifully and stayed up all night. It was hot and I was dancing, but I never had to pull it up or adjust it. The material was very lightweight and comfortable, but was still very classy.

Perfect for dancing the night away!
The dress fit true to size. The zipper was a bit sticky to get up and caught the fabric if you weren't careful so definitely have someone there to help with the zip up. I got so many compliments for the color and style.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this dress! Had so many compliments on the color and felt amazing in it!
I am 5'4 about 145 lbs and it was fine for me. As the night went on though it did get a big snug with food and drinks. Didn't have to wear a bra with it either but I did use some tape on the dress so that the wire didn't poke me.

Loved it so much I bought it!
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

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.

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!

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.

Fun and flirty dress! Great length too.
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Tight through the bust, frumpy when on
I disliked this dress. It's quite long, so it looks frumpy. The material is very thin and kind of limp looking. Overall, the dress has no "wow" factor and is pretty boring. Did not even consider wearing it. I also found it overly snug in the bust, but I'm a 32DD, so this may not be true if you are smaller busted.

The lightweight material made this dress perfect for a warm evening wedding.
Tight in the bust but that added some va-va-voom for me so it worked out! The color is gorgeous and I received many compliments.

Great color and great fit!
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.

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.

Pretty dress, but not a great fit
This dress was pretty, but didn't fit great. The top hook above the zipper came so narrow and was extremely uncomfortable in a size 2, what I usually wear. So I had to wear the size 4, which made the length extremely long for a cocktail dress (even the size 2 was long for someone who is 5'2"). The dress was nice, but not flattering and nothing special. I definitely wouldn't rent this again.

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.

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!!

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!

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.
