This dress is fab-u-lous. I wore it for an industry awards event in NYC. It was cocktail attire, but some people go formal and some people roll in after work, so the dress runs the gamut. This dress was PERFECT. The fabric is dressy enough, and the cut is feminine and formal without that low-cut-, red lace, too short trying too hard look. The color is gorgeous, esp for those with light coloring like the model. Love, love, love this dress

Overall it was a beautifully crafted dress! I received a lot of compliments in it! The only thing is the dress is a tight fit in the hip so if you're a hippy girl size up.

I just loved this dress. I felt totally special and beautiful in it. I received tons of compliments. The sleeves are tiny bit tight, causing a little difficult raising your arms all the way over your head, but I was able to dance in it without any issues. Super flattering. It hits just above the knee--a great length. And it has pockets! I was incredibly sad to say goodbye to it.

The fit on this is amazing! I have larger hips and it was a little tight when I sat down but overall the cut is great if you're a little curvy like me. The print is gorgeous. It's not too bright but it's a definite stand out dress! I wore this to a wedding in NYC and got tons of compliments. Paired it with the Lauren Merkin clutch and Kendra Scott earrings with dark green nail polish, smokey winged eye make up and nude lispstick with slicked back hair in a bun. Super sophisticated and glamorous with a little rock and roll edge. Already thinking of renting this again for future events.

It was a little tight in the sleeves and the material a little thick. I did a lot of dancing and was in southern humidity, so I was a little hot. But I don't regret wearing the dress. It was a little short on me, so I had it hemmed to make it a more "fun" length.

I wore this dress to shoot a campaign for Komen, I needed something that had structure and texture as it was shot from a profile angle. It is so classy and cut beautifully. This dress is truly a piece of art!! I suggest going up a size for your backup, I found the 0 slightly tight around the bust, but it fit perfectly everywhere else. The 2 was too big all around for me personally. The dress did have a slight tear in the back slit, but since I only wore it for the hour long shoot it was not an issue for me. I will be waiting for this one to go up for sale!!

UPDATE: I wore this dress a second time as I was selected by Crain's Business Chicago as their August "Business Model". Thank you RTR for a beautiful dress for the photo shoot!! Photo credit Shane Collins. I have to say, I am OBSESSED with this dress and it was PERFECT for taking pictures for my blog (www.the-fbombs.com)! I used my free birthday dress (seriously, Go PRO if you haven't already you get a free dress on your birthday!!) and I have to say, I could not have been happier. The color is not only stunning in pictures but it's beautiful in person, the pattern is wonderful, it is tasteful and modest (PERFECT to wear at a wedding!!) and the best part!? It has POCKETS!! All in all, rent the dress!! I have nothing bad to say about it at all. It runs very true to size (I could have worn the 2 but the 4 was just a tad more comfortable) and you will LOVE wearing it all night long!!

The bust is tight. If you get the right bra to shove them in the dress is effortlessly amazing, so anyone over a DD (the RTR size chart does not have DDD in it) be warned. The pockets are a huge advantage and the dress does allow you to drink a little and not look bloated due to the miraculous darting. I would wear this again, I just wish my bust was a little more comfortable. Not a single complaint otherwise.

This dress ran true to size and was perfect for a late summer Colorado wedding. I loved having pockets! The only con is the fabric has no stretch whatsoever, so the cap sleeves made for limited arm movement throughout the night (only a problem is you're trying to dance). Otherwise, it was great!

Great dress- fitted in the top- not for girls with broad shoulders. Actually very roomy in the hips (not a problem I normally have!)- I would recommend sizing down for backup. Very class and conservative cut. I wore it with similar black strappy shoes as the model and an edgy black and gold statement necklace to make it feel more modern.

Gorgeous. Structured. Classic.

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this dress for a wedding, and I have to say, it was absolutely perfect. I wore the size 0, because with the pockets and the structure of the dress, it was important to have a form fitted waistline. My only complaint is that my size 34D chest caused some difficulty with sitting comfortably at certain points. Regardless of that, the dress was so gorgeous - it made me feel like a million bucks. I would 100% rent this dress again, and look forward to renting this same dress in the additional pink color later on.

Beautiful dress; stunning color and material, great structure and very flattering

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I absolutely loved this dress. I rented it for an early fall wedding that was rather conservative. It has great structure and manages to be both conservative yet very flattering. The waist hit perfectly (I'm 5'5" and a size 6) and afforded me a very defined hourglass shape. The sleeves were a little snug, but this wasn't much of an issue. Just had to be mindful that they would bunch up if I lifted my arms up too high.

I love this dress. The color, print and material is perfection. The sizing is unfortunate. The size that fits up top won't fit on bottom and vice versa. Ah well. Can't win 'em all.

Perfect for a fall wedding!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress to a fall wedding and it was great. It fit great from the bust up. However, the lining was tighter than the dress and it was a a bit too tight in the waist and butt (I have hips and butt). There was clearly more room in the dress of the dress. I would wear it again, but would size up, not down, as the site says. Also I wore a regular bra and was fine. Not sure why the site doesn't recommend one.

Very classy and comfortable dress! The pattern and material don't really come through in the picture well, but it is beautiful. The only warning is I felt it was a little short when I sat down, but at 5'11", lots of things feel too short! I am sad to put this in the mail today. I rented the Kenneth Lane deep blue drop earrings as well and thought they worked great with the dress.

I wore this dress for a wedding and it was absolutely perfect. Besides the fact that it looks great, it was incredibly comfortable. I'm always concerned about bust-fit, but this was great. If I stretched in certain ways, I did feel that it got a bit tight in the bust area, but otherwise it fit fantastically.

I ended up wearing the 10; but the 8 and 10 were very similar. I went with the 10 so I did not have to wear any spanx and since it was a catholic mass, the 10 gave me a little more ability to kneel comfortably during the service. The color is stunning, and my bf did not like the dress online, but loved it in person! I got a ton of compliments!

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size

I am not a pattern person, much less floral, but the fabric on this dress is quite pretty. I kind of needed this to be very fitted and accentuate my hourglass shape in order to overcome how conservative it is and not feel matronly. I am on the smaller end of an 8 and the 8 didn't provide that level of fit. Maybe a smaller size would have but I hadn't ordered a backup size for that style.

This dress looks pretty in the photos but does not wear well.

Size worn: 2
Rented for: Other
I was hoping that the dress would not have the negative traits that other reviewers mentioned, but unfortunately it was not flattering at all. It was cut for a very, very petite person- Maybe someone who is extremely thin with a short torso. Although I have thin arms, under the arms was very tight, squeezing the underarm skin in an unattractive way. Because of this I didn't wear the Size 0 and sized up to the Size 2. Although the Size 2 was somewhat better under the arms, it was very baggy in the abdomen and lower back. Overall, it was not a good fit. The material and print were beautiful, but the cut was awkward.

The dress is pretty --the material is thick and good for indoor events in the winter.

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
The dress runs large, especially at the bust and waist. Although I love its beautiful pattern, I decided not to wear it to an indoor party b/c the dress has a weird crease near the bust level and the cut is quite bulky. It will be great if RTR can run a petit line to cater for a greater variety of body types.

I didn't end up wearing this for my event, as the size 12 was too tight on the thighs and the 14 was too large in the waist. I think that you have to be careful if you have a curvy body type for this one. Pretty dress though!

This dress is perfect for a wedding or cocktail party. The fabric was thick and satin-y, and I don't see it wrinkling too much. Unfortunately, the size 4 gave me no room to breathe on top. My rib cage is a bit wide and I like breathing, so I didn't get to wear it.

A nicely cut dress for someone with an hourglass figure. Really nips in the waist, but had extra volume on the bottom so it wasn't too tight on the hips. Smooshed the boobs down a bit, but wasn't too bad. Only down side of the extra volume on bottom is that it bunched up a bit every once in a while so I had to keep smoothing it down. However, I would say it really wasn't that big of a problem, and I got so many compliments on it, it was still totally worth it. A very chic dress that I would definitely rent again.
