This dress was the most figure flattering dress I have ever worn, accentuating all of the best places while camouflaging the flaws. I got so many compliments on it when I wore it to an evening wedding, it was so fun to wear. Next time I rent it, I will order a size smaller, though, great ego boost!

After having a baby, I have a slightly thicker waistline and a small pouch. This dress fit very well and made me look very attractive. I got a ton of compliments!! The bust area was a little big and the hanger strings kept coming out while dancing so make sure you tuck the strings in really well. This is the kind of dress in which you put your deodorant on AFTER putting on the dress. Would I rent this again? Absolutely!

I love the concept of this dress, and the silk is beautiful. I have a small frame though and the 2 was much too big on me. The one-strap also cuts across the chest much closer to the neck than I am used to, and I was twisting it around all evening and not ever 100% comfortable, though I did get a lot of compliments. I am very true to size and it's rare when I can't wear something right off the rack, but I couldn't with this one - it might be a better match for other figures.

This dress was beautiful! The top is a little large so I could have actually worn a smaller size then I thought. I suggest getting your size and one smaller. Got tons of compliments!

This dress is gorgeous but does run a little big. However, I was able to hide it with tape. The smooth fabric used adds to the elegance of the dress. The fabric wrinkles easy so make sure you can steam it once you get it.

I was not able to wear this, it was a VERY close fit but I just felt like I was not busty enough to wear it although it was perfect for my hips. REALLY cute dress!

This is a beautiful, classy dress. It runs *very* large, though...if you have a small bust, I would recommend going down one or two sizes.

Great Dress, very flattering, Classy, not to short, hit me right above the knee. Dress does run big in bust area, I have a D cup and normally wear a size 6, ordered both 4 and 6 and ended up going with the 4 because the top part fit better, the hanger strings are a pain, I ended up taping them down to keep them from popping out. Great dress would rent again!!!

I got two sizes and both were a bit big, but the smaller worked out fine. I have a pretty bug bust (34D) and even then the smaller size was a bit big. But loved the dress and got lots of complements!

I ordered this dress for a dinner party and the dress was beatiful!... i unfortuntly did not get to wear it because it just didn't fit me correctly. I'm very shapey and it just pulled across my hips a little to tightly for my liking, I would not have been confortable wearing it. But the dress is very pretty

My dresses I ordered came in before 1pm on the day I had them to be delivered which gave me ample time to see if I wanted to get out and buy accessories or different shoes if necessary. The wedding was the day after so I had the pretty much a full day to do any last minute running around if need be.

This dress was perfect for my New Years Eve wedding I had this year. I have a chest too (34/36D) and I really think the dress was super flattering. I got compliments all night long too. I wore it with black strappy open toed heals, a chunky bling ring and a chunky necklace which worked nicely with the neckline. Very comfortable to dance all night long in & the only thing I would say is use the double stick tape for the side boob area. I should have! Some pics of me dancing show some boob but not too much but I would have been happier if I had used the double stick tape.

I was attending a Super Hero themed formal dinner so I turned to RTR. This dress was PERFECT!! It had everything I wanted...cape, sexy, and well fitting. Best decision for me. The dress fit my Cat Women-like look(I had great accessories and makeup). The order, deliver, and return were Super Easy. I will rent again without hesitation.

I wore this for a wedding that my husband and I had to be a host and hostess. Between my dress and his awesome suit we had people asking if we did this for a living and if we did not we should..So the dress was a huge hit had tons and tons of compliments.. My only complaint the side without the strap came dangeroulsy low..

definitely ran big, got this size and the next size down and surprisingly wore the smaller size, fit great and got a lot of compliments, definitely roomy enough if youre curvy but still make you look like you have a shape and great with a bright colored shoe

I received many compliments on this dress. It's a bit more matte than the picture shows and the one shoulder strap has a few ruffles on it that I did not pick up in the picture. Otherwise, it fit great and was the perfect length for a fall wedding at the beach.

I wore this twice, to two Broadway shows. I wasn't sure what size to get because I was pregnant when I wore it. It is a great dress to wear while pregnant, it was very comfortable with my baby bump! The cape was a little hard to deal with a couple of times but overall it worked well.

I have very wide hips, this dress did not lend to that. :) The silk will definitely enhance any flaws you are not trying to draw attention to. If you have a flat stomach this is totally the dress for you!!! It's absolutely beautiful.

I rented this dress for my birthday. I loved the elegant, sexy one-shouldered look. My only complaint is that I was in between the two sizes I rented - one was slightly too small, one was slightly too big. I went with the bigger size for a more comfortable look. Still, it was lovely.

Great Dress for Engagement Party

Size worn: 36
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I wore this dress for my sister-in-law's engagement party outside at a winery in Napa, CA. The dress was a little complicated to figure out off the hanger, but once I figured it out, it was beautiful on. It ran a bit small, but still wasn't unflattering on. The cape part got a bit in the way until I got used to it, but the pictures all look amazing, so if you're one who doesn't exactly mind a wee bit of suffering for fashion, this is a great dress for you!

I am a curvy size 6-8 in most dresses. I have a large chest @34DDD. I was a bit nervous that the dress would not accommodate my bust but it zipped and did not squeeze!! Loved the arm cape!

It ran true to size. I didn't wear a bra and the dress shifted a bit. My biggest complaint was the hanger straps kept coming up out of the dress all night. Because of that, I would not rent this one again. I do love RTR and returns are always easy!!!

Size worn: 40
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wore this dress to a foundation dinner with peers from my industry and received tons of compliments. I got the 6 and 8 and could have used something a little tighter, but I made due. Definitely thankful I bought the fashion tape since you need it for the area under your arm on the cape side and the fabric was about loose throughout, but it worked and was comfortable.

Super cute - just didn't fit me right.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
The dress was cute and I was excited to get it as the original dress I ordered was damaged by the previous renter. It just didn't fit right though. The fabric around the sides above the bra line hung so low, I felt uncomfortable wearing it as you could clearly see my bra. I didn't have any pins with me, but I think that would have just looked tacky. Usually the chest area is a tight fit for me in most designs, but this one was too lose. I recommend sizing down. The style is looser than you think.

The dress was lovely. I did find that I needed to use double sided tape to try and hold the bust area in place. The dress front would slide forward so I found myself constantly pulling up the front so that the should area was readjusted.

Nice Dress

Size worn: 44

I got this as a back up dress. When I put it on it fit nice around the body, but around the bust was very loose and would have needed garment tape to keep it in place. I opted to wear my first choice.
