It was a great night! Everyone said I was supermodel worthy

Size worn: M
Overall fit: Small

Runs verrry small in the bust. I ordered the M and the S and the small would've fit well if it wasn't so fitted up top, and I do not have a super large Bust. The M was great except the bottom was a bit stretched out but it didn't create a large problem because it allowed more room to dance in.

The dress was very flattering & the color stood out- perfect for a holiday party!

Size worn: XS
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
Loved this dress so much & got a ton of compliments. When I ordered it, they only had a XS (which I normally wear) & not a S. I was upset when it arrived bc the side zipper was so tight- this designer runs small- However, once I zipped it up, it layed so nice chest wise and was very comfortable all night. The red is an amazing shade- not orangey like the website views it. I'd still order 2 sizes in case. This dress is great- definitely worth it. Very happy.

The dress worked perfectly for NYE. I typically wear a size 0 or 2 in dresses, but the Small I ordered was way too short. And I'm 5'1". I can't imagine someone 5'6" being able to wear this dress and not showing everything to the world. The Medium (the backup) ended up fitting much better as it was a more comfortable length!

Looked and felt great in my RTR dress!

Size worn: S
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
This dress was a beautiful fit and I loved it the moment I put it on. I have a larger bust and it was definitely a little snug, but since they ran out of my back up, I had to make do with the small. The major problem with the dress is the material! I noticed that it had a strange mark on the front when I first got it (not a big deal since the ruching hid it). However, my friend spilled some water on the dress at dinner and I quickly learned what that mark was from... the material gets VERY strange, wrinkly, and ugly when water touches it. DO NOT WEAR THIS DRESS if you will be anywhere near water, drinks, or sweat!!!

Love the dress. Definitely stood out in Vegas. (Photos arent the best, but you can see how the dress fits)

Size worn: XS
Overall fit: True to Size

I wore this dress while on vacation in Vegas. It was absolutely beautiful! Very classy. I was surprised by the seam that seperates the top and the skirt, it isnt show in the pictures on the site. The seam is right at the pelvis and runs straight across. At first I was leary about it, but it works well with the dress and I doubt the average person would notice it just looking at you.

Short!

Size worn: M
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
Okay, it looks short on the model, but I thought I could pull it off. It was shorter than my shortest tennis skirts. I have a long torso and I couldn't wear this dress. If I bent slightly forward, you could see underwear. It was also super tight at the bustline - hard to zip up. Probably would look great with some opaque tights - but I was going to wear it for an outdoor poolside party in Vegas. No tights weather!

Size worn: S
Overall fit: True to Size

I don't normally go for one-shoulder style dresses, but I just had to try this one. I wore it for my friend's bachelorette party and it was perfect. I wore a Small, only because of the length. The XS fit better everywhere else, but it was so short it barely went down past my hips. There is a significant difference in length between the XS and Small sizes. The Small was a good mid-thigh length on me. I was concerned that the bust area might be too tight, based on other reviews I read, but I had no problem getting the dress zipped up. Overall, it was really fun and really comfortable. I had a great night out in this dress!

Too short!

Size worn: M
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Vacation
The color of this dress is a beautiful vibrant red-orange, just what I wanted!! However, I am 5'10", typically wear size 4-6, and this was too short for me. The Medium dress zipped and fit great up top, and looked great on my broad shoulders, but this dress did not even go past my panty line. I'm just too tall to wear this dress, and would not recommend it for anyone taller than 5'8". Easy to return, and got a credit for something else in the future. Thank you RTR!

Last Minute Back-Up Dress

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is very VERY short and very tight. I would actually go up two sizes if you have any shape to your body. It barely covered my butt and the fabric is not forgiving at all. This was a last minute choice when I didn't think the initial dress I got would work. Because I was in another state and the wedding was the next day I ended up wearing the first dress I got and sent this one back immediately.

second time I've rented this dress. First time I ordered a small and loved it! Second time my medium dress was so short it could have been a shirt. My friend who is 5'0 was even unable to wear it. I was very disappointed as it appeared to either have been altered or damaged. But, just in case, be cautious when ordering.

Bold, something I would never have bought normally!

Size worn: XS
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I wore this to a fraternity formal. The dress was beautiful, fun, and definitely made a statement. It's still classy with a daring twist. It was also really comfortable. However, my two complaints were that a) it was too long, and b) it stretched out by the end of the night. The picture shows that the dress hits mid thigh, but really it was closer to the knee than I thought. I folded it inside and used some fashion tape to make it tighter and shorter since otherwise it kind of hung loose. The way the dress was made also had some ruching/extra fabric in the stomach area, so if you're not too confident about your stomach, I would just be wary of this. Overall, beautiful dress but more of a one-time thing for me!

I read the reviews that the dress was short but I had no idea that it wuld be this short. I am 5'0 so Im not sure who can wear this dress unless you have absolutely no butt or boobs. The small was like a shirt on me...I wore the medium and wore a black skirt underneath.

It was a gorgeous dress...ran pretty small though. My butt was literally hanging out of the back. Has a little fold at the waist I was unaware of and wasn't very flattering. The color is radiant though. I think if people sized up from their normal size it would fit much better. If you have a big booty AND long legs...you should try and think about some other dresses definitely.

This was my first RTR experience. Wore the dress to Valentine's dinner. My boyfriend loved it!

Size worn: S
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
The XS fit me better, but the difference in length between the S and XS was significant. I ended up wearing the S because I was just going to dinner and didn't want a super short dress. The S was a little large in the hips for me, so it bunched up on the sides making my hips look larger than they are. That being said, it was a really cute dress and I felt really hot in it. I would say it runs true to size, but if you are concerned about length, size up.

Good "going out" dress.

Size worn: XS
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I rented this for New Year's Eve. It probably should have rented the Small, but I wore the XS. It fit, but was a bid snug on me. Since it was a bit small and quite short, I just paired it with black tights and black suede boots so it looked a little more conservative. I rated it true to size because I really should have rented the Small, but there were none available. For someone who usually wears a size 0 or is 100-115 pounds, XS is for you. If you are more than this, get the Small.

I got this dress to wear in Vegas with my husband. I loved it and so did he. The dress is short and tight, so probably not something you'd want to wear to a work event, but if you're looking for a party dress this is it! The upper edge of the dress on the side without the sleeve kept slipping down and exposing the top of my strapless bra but that could easily be fixed with fabric tape. I felt great wearing this dress!
