Feeling like a movie star!

Size worn: 36R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I usually wear between a 0 and a 2 but size 2 was the only size available. It was a tiny bit big in the chest area but other than that fit like a glove!! A 0 would have been to short, the 2 was absolutely perfect in length! I was very impressed, the dress was so beautiful and extremely comfortable.

Black tie fundraiser Gala. Danced all night in this dress!

Size worn: 40R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I'm usually a size 6 or 8...the sales rep on the phone picked size 42L - which was WAY to big everywhere - not to mention about 6 inches too long even with my heels. I'm 5'6 1/2". They sent a 40R the next day - which was still a smidge too big, but it worked and it was so comfortable! Fabric is stretchy - so I was wishing I had gone with the next size down for extra "hug". I love the simplicity of this dress. The "tie up" on the side is strictly decorative, but adds a nice, sexy detail (it doesn't show up in this pic). I'm so glad I picked it for my "back-up" dress at the last minute. Great experience shopping with RTR - beats running around town from store to store!

This is a great dress in a classic style that can be dresses up or down with accessories.

Size worn: 34R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I am a 0 and this dress was big and long. Note in picture that I used a sash that I had around my waist so I could pull the dress up and make it shorter. Tried taping it - not easy on this dress. It is form fitting but not tight. It was actually too big on me in the bust/shoulders but it does well when it does't fit exactly right. I picked this dress because I as not sure how dressy this black tie event would be and it made a great well-fitted dress and a fantastic backdrop for good accessories.

I wore this dress to a gala. It was definitely very form fitting and fashionable.

Size worn: 36L
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I ordered a 36L and the length of the dress was quite longer than I expected even with my 4 inch heels. I had to be careful not to trip on the dress. I would have probably felt better in a 36R. However the dress was extremely comfortable and easy to wear.

I rented this dress for a semi-formal wedding rehearsal dinner. The bride decided last minute she all wanted us in long black dresses. This was my first RTR experience and it was wonderful! I got the 34R and it fit me with a little room left over. One thing that I wish I had known is that it's not fitted all the way thru the middle. Other than that, a great fit and I got some wonderful compliments!

Elegant and sexy for NYE!

Size worn: 34R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress fit like a glove without looking inappropriate. It has very nice construction, with an inner liner which helps cinch in/smooth out the lumps! Fabric is a very high quality viscose jerseyBust was a little tight, but not uncomfortably so- there is enough give in the dress to make it super comfortable. Length was beautiful, pooling a little on the floor-- however, I did have to lift dress to prevent tripping when I was shaking it up on the dance floor. Only issue I had with the dress is that it is very difficult to get on and off- there is no zipper on the side or back (which makes for beautiful lines) but I needed a helper to wiggle it down. Do your hair after you put on the dress...

I really liked this dress, though I wish I ordered a 4 instead of a 6 and 8 equivalent. I wore the 6, and it was definitely big and long. But, it was very flattering and super comfortable!

Great Dress; Runs Big

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was beautiful and definitely would have been long enough for me with heels. I did not get to wear it though due to my unpreparedness in ordering with a decent amount of time before the event. I decided to order the dress only days before the wedding I was supposed to go to so the only size available was a size 10. Usually I am between a size8/10 depending on waist and length (I have a big booty). This dress would have been perfect had I ordered a smaller size.

My first RTR near miss

Size worn: 36R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
Thank goodness I ordered this to be picked up and tried on before the rental. I'm 5'4", 32C and tried on the 36R after reading reviews and it barely came to my ankle. Additional, I consider myself thin but athletic and the hips,waist and stomach area was so unforgiving that it created the illusion that I had a bit of a tummy bump, in black none the less! Be weary of the the length and make sure you've got your spanx!

Good baby bump dress

Size worn: 40R
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
I didn't end up wearing it because the size I got was too big - but it would have been nice for a growing bump. I was about 4.5 months at the time and the fabric definitely could have stretched further. I panicked and got the bigger size due to the belly and should have gone with my pre-preggo size.

Classic and well fitting.

Size worn: 36R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The fabric was heavy (but not uncomfortable) so it hung very well. It had the perfect amount of stretch and was very forgiving and flattering. I normally would have chosen the Long size but I had to wear flats for this event due to a foot injury. The regular size was about 1/2 inch from the floor. If you want to wear heels and are 5'7" or over, I would definitely recommend the Long.

Classic and comfortable

Size worn: 34R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I received this dress in a 34R and 36R. I tried the 34R on first and it fit well in general, but the ruching wasn't quite right because the little strappy things that are supposed to hang down on one side were missing. They were still attached on the 36R, but it was too big. I called RTR and they offered to send me any other available dress (at any price!) free of charge since this dress, while still wearable, was damaged and didn't fit exactly how it should. The other dress I picked was unwearable because of a zipper issue so I ended up wearing this dress in the 34R. It was fine, but I had to keep picking it up all night since it didn't fit right. I also used fashion tape to keep the dress up a little better. Overall, it's a pretty dress and I did get compliments on it. I hope they are able to fix it because I think it would look really nice if it's repaired.

I am 9 months pregnant and this dress worked great!

Size worn: 40R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress was completely stretchy so it fit my 9 month pregnant belly! I looked slim in all the right places and the belly looked really cute! The top was a bit wide and I had to pin the one side, but if you have a large chest, it would work great.

Simple, comfortable, elegant dress.

Size worn: 38R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wore this dress to a black tie gala for work. The dress is very comfortable because of the jersey fabric, but because it is black it looks formal. I didn't notice the drawstring in the RTR photo (and I didn't love that part of the dress) but it wasn't that noticeable and created more of a waist. Overall, thumbs up.

I didn't wear this dress.

Size worn: 40L
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I received a 40L in this dress, as well and it was HUGE. It literally hung off me. It looked like I was wearing a sack. I would possibly recommend this dress if you are curvy, but flat-chested girls stay away, or get at least one size smaller than usual. I can't say that it was anything too remarkable, otherwise. It's a simple, serviceable black dress.

Thought I would love this dress - really attracted to the string detail on the side. However, top part was ill-fitting and loose, and overall, dress hid my shape and looked slightly paper-baggish. Like the design but think the dress is only okay. Luckily, my back up dress fit perfectly!

This is such a classic style and cut, which made it very appealing to me. However, the fabric is VERY heavy and pulls down the rest of the dress. It was too unflattering for me to want to wear.

I rented this as my second dress for a formal affair. It was way too big when I tried it on. I would suggest getting a couple sizes smaller than normal because the material is very stretchy.

This dress is very, very long. I'm 5'1" and the bottom of the dress was swimming along the floor. Luckily RTR provides fabric tape which works really well. I wore the smaller of the two sizes I received, which was a size 4. But the 2 would have worked better since it runs large and the material is stretchy. My friend who is 5'8" even thought the regular would be long for her.

This dress ran very large and the bust area drooped on the side. The material is heavy so you must order smaller size or it will weigh you down. The L was was too long and I am 5'7 and had on 23 inch heels and still gathered at the bottom. Could not wear it. I ordered the 8 and the 10. I wore a 12 in the Nicole Miller and it fit. SO order much smaller for this dress as the 8 and 10 were way too big.
