Beautiful gown, runs small

Size worn: 18WL
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I love, love, loved this gown, but unfortunately, it was a little snug and the size I needed was not available. I would recommend going 2 sizes up for a comfortable fit. The peplum is great for disguising a tummy, but still offers a slimming silhouette. I will look to rent this for another event.

This dress, the designer for that matter runs a little small, however the fit of this dress is beautiful. It accentuated all the right things and hid all that needed to be hidden. What I loved most about this dress was that I didn't even need to wear a body shaper. it was perfect.

This dress made me feel gorgeous!

The dress mostly fit amazingly. The dress hugs your body and flatters your shape. A negative would have to be the bust area. I am quite busty, (DD) and was constantly pulling up all night. I could've had a wardrobe malfunction at any moment! The dress was for a formal wedding in Savannah GA and it was completely appropriate for the function. The dress has a very small train in the back and it's just one of the small details that I love about this dress!

I didn't wear a bra with this dress, I felt way too much on display. The dress is awesome and I received tons of compliments. It hid everything I would normally be self conscious about. I added a halter ribbon to it to keep from messing with the strapless tug we all do.

I loved this dress! I got tons of compliments and it was very flattering.

Size worn: 16WR
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Pros: Because the material is stretchy the dress was really comfortable and forgiving. The peplum style is also very forgiving for your midsection. Con: The only con with the dress was that the top part didn't fit flat to my chest so if you were standing right next to me you could see down my dress a little. I wore a black strapless so that is wasn't as obvious and I bought some double sided fashion tape which also helped. Overall I loved this dress and the way it fit.

I'm a size 20 dress with RTR, real time I wear an size 18 pant with LB. This dress needed adjusted to stay up at the bust so I decided not to wear it. I'm a 40DDD and it fit but was very loose (I didn't want to tack it fear of damage to the dress) and I was not comfortable with the formal I had rented it for. I'm 5'6 and thought the regular length would be perfect, I needed a long to wear a heel. Perfect dress to wear with a chunky statement necklace!

THIS DRESS. Oh my GOODNESS, THIS DRESS.

Size worn: 18WL
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress is SPECTACULAR. I mean, literally the most wonderful thing I've ever worn, ever. I felt spectacular and amazing and just so beautiful. I rented the long because the regular wasn't available and I just figured- tall shoes. I'd rent the regular next time. I also would PROBABLY try my real size. This is because it WOULD'VE zipped in my size, and if it were a big snug around the bottom you wouldn't have noticed because of the peplum. I'm smaller on top- so I sized up and it was kind of a problem- you can see in the photo the bodice of the dress wasn't centered- that's because the darn thing kept shifting and falling because it was so big on my bust (I literally stuffed my bra with every cutlet I had which caused the boob spillage over the top). I had to use some tape to get it to not fall and expose my bra, but I didn't use enough of it. So if you're a pear with a smaller bust, like me, you might want to get your regular size and the size up as a backup. Nevertheless the dress is BRILLIANT, looks and feels fabulous, and I'd give anything to own it, it's so great.

It definitely runs small, but with the help of a corset, I was able to make it work. I felt beautiful and elegant and it was a big hit with my friends and family. The peplum is great for hiding love handles or a belly (or both in my case, lol!) The go to girls were very helpful. I can't wait to rent the runway again!

This dress us superb! I received compliments all night long! All the reviews stated how this dress runs small and I usually wear an 18 and to be safe ordered a 22. I could have gone with a size 20 and would have been perfect. Because I went 2 sizes up the bust area was too big but stayed up just fine. You can sit all night and be comfortable and because of the peplum top you look magnificent front and back, hiding those little imperfections.

Dress definitely runs small. I also thought it was somewhat short. I'm 5'3 and I couldn't wear normal (4inch) heels with it, I opted for flats, just so the dress would graze the ground and you couldn't see my feet. I loved this dress and received many compliments. Will definitely use RTR again!

The Peplum did wonders!

Size worn: 20WL
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I received so many compliments on this dress. I wore it to a formal wedding. My size is an 18 in most of my clothes. I am glad that I ordered the 20WL. An 18 would have been too small on the bottom and just right on the top but the 22 would have been way too big on the top and just right on the bottom. I ordered the Long to make sure that it was long enough because i was wearing heels (I ordered a regular in a different dress style before and it felt short to me the entire night). The dress wound up being slightly too long but not too long that it was a nuisance throughout the night. The top portion of the dress was a little big around my bust. I kept adjusting it but that was just because I was making sure that I was not showing more than I needed too (lol). I am bottom heavy so the bottom portion of the dress was a bit snug (but I expect that from most of my clothes). The material stretched which made the dress snug but gave me a fabulous silhouette. The peplum and the belt gave a classic cut dress a more modern look. I think the peplum disguised my stomach and and my butt some which is always a plus. I did wear a shorts girdle that went from under my busts to my mid thigh . My bust size is actually a 40D.

I attended a very fancy formal wedding.

Size worn: 22WL
Overall fit: Small

Overall, I LOVED this dress! I got plenty of compliments on it. It is so chic and classy and accentuates all the right areas. I thought I might look silly in it because I am short-waisted but the peplum is placed perfectly and the dress is cut just right. The dress does run about one size small. I'm 5'5 but I found the 22WL to hit perfectly with a 1-2 inch heel. The zipper is very tough to get all the way up due to its "hidden" design so I wound up putting the dress on overhead. My bra size is 46DD.

This dress was sent to me as a replacement for one that wasn't ready in time. I would have never even thought of picking a peplum style dress, but I am so glad the stylist sent it too me. It was two sizes bigger than my normal size but it fit perfectly everywhere except the bust. I have am 40DDD and there was still some extra room up top. I got a lot of compliments and felt comfortable all night. My stomach is my problem area and this dress was very flattering. I highly recommend it!

Gorgeous Dress! AMAZING Accessories!

Size worn: 20WL
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
As usual, the service at RTR was exceptional. The dresses and accessories arrived on time and ready to wear. The return process was easy as pie, and I can’t wait for my next event so that I can use RTR again! Now for the details: The dress is absolutely beautiful! It complements every curve and hides every flaw! The dress definitely runs small; so size up! I am a true 16 and both the 18WL and the 20WL fit, but I wore the 20WL because the length was longer. The 18WL was tight and accentuated my curves a bit more than the 20WL did. I could wear the dress with or without Spanx and a bra, but had I worn the 18WL, I probably would have felt more comfortable wearing Spanx and no bra, because the top of the dress has a built in corset that lifts and helps display the bust, and a bra would have caused a bit of an “overflow”. However, the length of the 18WL was about half an inch off the floor with 2 inch heels. (A big “no-no” for me.) I wore the 20WL with a push-up bra so that the top would fit a bit tighter. I opted out on the Spanx since the dress was a bit loose. As far as the length goes, it was perfect! I could easily wear four inch heels and the dress would just graze the floor! The ring and bracelet are stunning! The bracelet fit just right, but the ring was a bit snug. I could have squeezed it onto my ring finger, but I chose to wear it on my pinky instead. This is not something I usually do, but the ring was too spectacular to pass up! Overall, this has been my favorite RTR look!

This dress was stunningly amazing. From the reviews I decided to order one size up and got a 22 and a 20 just in case. The upper portion is cut a bit small so even though the 20 fit I went with the 22 to be safe. It is very flattering and provides great coverage to the mid section. I received many compliments throughout the evening and later through messages and I knew this was the right choice. If you are considering this dress I go for it! You will not be disappointed.

I ordered this dress because I loved the look of it. Other reviews said to size up because it runs small. I wear an 18 so I ordered the 20. Thank goodness I also received a different dress! The 20 was way too small! Oddly enough the different dress I received was a 18 and fit perfectly! The dress itself is beautiful, but runs way too small. Size up, and then size up again!

Wore this dress to my partner's sister's wedding. It was a hit all the way around!

Size worn: 16WR
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I am a short torso'ed, 34J cup bra wearing size 16. The dress fit btw true to size and a little small for the size. It was very comfortable once it was on. I needed 2 people to help me zip it because the zipper keep sticking. I wore Spanx under it, but the Peplum was so forgiving, that I could have went without it! I am only 4'11" so I wore it with 4" heels which had the dress stopping right at the floor in the front, and left just enough for the train to drag in the back. In retrospect, I should have gone with a 4.5' heel just to give me a little more length in the front. I wear a 34J cup bra and the bodice accommodated my ample bust with no problem. It felt very secure. I danced and jumped and bent over and hugged folk, all with no problems, or fear of a wardrobe malfunction. There was a little bit of bunching in the back because of my short torso, but that was not the dress's fault. Also, it was covered by the shrug I chose, seen in the picture, which also covered my too large arms. If you have arms that are larger than you are comfortable with, then I encourage you to pair this dress with a shrug. Overall - It fit well, was very comfortable to wear, and looked fabulous! I encourage anyone to rent it!

Amazing dress...makes you feel like a million dollars!!

Size worn: 16WR
Rented for: Formal Affair
I was very hesitant to rent a dress I had never tried on because I can be difficult to fit. I'm petite in stature, but very curvy with a short torso. After reading almost every review and comparing measurements and pictures I decided to go with the 16WR. I was worried it would be too short looking at other pictures, but it hit the ground perfectly with my 4 inch heels! The dress was snug, but the peplum hid all my imperfections. I was getting great compliments all night and I felt absolutely AMAZING in this dress!!! If you're hesitant to order this dress, just do it. You will not regret it!! The fabric is heavy and luxurious, and is so comfortable! I'm so glad I went through with renting this dress!!

The fit was a little large for me, as I actually wear a 16, but "fit" instructions said to size up. In any event it looked beautiful...even better than I thought it would since I've never worn a sleeveless dress like this in my life! Out of 200 women only four of us were dressed appropriately. Oh, and Badgly rocks!
