STYLIST REVIEW

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Other
I love this option for a conservative wedding or family event! The print is very unique, and the material is very comfortable. The hem did hit me at about an inch or so below my knee, so if you are a little taller (above 5'6" or with extra high heels) I think this would be a sleek dress to wear if you are looking for a unique, new option and have a fear of looking like the rest of the crowd. The dress ends up actually being a little bit bigger than my true size, so I would suggest sizing down in your back up!

Cool as ice. Different, in a good way.

Overall fit: True to Size

I wore this dress to a rehearsal dinner. It is gorgeous and very unique, with a nice, sheath cut. The colors are sparkly light blue and silver. I only gave it less than 5 stars because I wouldn't rent this dress for the price (I received a replacement from RTR when one of my other choices could not arrive).

not cut for a tall figure

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I received this dress as a backup and didn't wear it. While I liked the somewhat futuristic feel of the dress and the icy colors, I found that the dress was very tight across my chest and the lines of the dress didn't fall where they should on me. The angles of the blue pattern across the front hit my hips at an unflattering place which I suspect is due to the fact that I'm 5'11" and mostly leg. It also bothered me that the blue pattern wasn't symmetrical- like the fabric had shifted before being sewn in so rather than falling directly down my middle in a straight line, the center line of star bursts veered off to one side. This my just be my detail oriented self being obsessive but I did feel that it made the dress look lower quality. All in all the dress just wasn't for me but would probably flatter someone with a boyish figure.

I wore this the premiere of the movie Transcendence, it was perfect.

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
It runs a little bit large in the bust and waist, but mostly true to size. This was the perfect dress for my occasion- beautiful yet casual enough that I didn't feel over the top. It's extraordinarily well-crafted; the material is heavy and beautiful. It looks even better in real life than in photos- I got so many compliments and it made this normal girl stand out on the red carpet, even amongst a slew of celebrities.

Unique Design, Stellar Fit

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I received a lot of compliments on the unique design and stellar fit of this dress. Wore it to an evening reception and turned heads, the most important of which was my husband's. Fits true to size and the length is below the knee but it's a good dress for a woman with curves.

The complements just poured in...

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
This dress is beautifully unique, very well crafted. I am super tall and was a little concerned because I needed it to be a modest length (at the knee or below). I was pleased to receive it and discover that the length was perfect. People (even complete strangers) commented on how nice the dress looked on me - it was definitely figure flattering. The only reason for the four stars and not five, was that the material had no stretch whatsoever. So my normal size (2) was too snug to get on, causing me to resort to my backup size (4), which fit but was a little bunchy in the midsection. I kept having to pull it down by the hem to keep the bunchiness from appearing. Other than that the dress looked great and was worth the rental price.

Did not flatter hourglass figure

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I didn't end up wearing this dress, it would work on a straight & narrow or more athletic shape but not with curves. The fabric is a nice heavy silky material, but it has no stretch and didn't flatter my shape. It fit pretty true to size in the top, but I had a bubble around my waist and it flattened my bum. The blue design on the front has more contrast in person so it's a bolder blue than the photo.

Not my style.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
The dress I originally ordered was not available in two sizes, so the RTR stylist sent this one as well. It was a cute dress and fit well, but it wasn't the style I was going for for my daughter's baptism.
