Loved this dress. Perfect for a fall wedding!
Fits true to size, but slightly tighter in the hips. Difficult to sit comfortably. The colors are vibrant and the style is classy. I loved this dress!

This was the perfect dress for my work holiday party.
I needed help being zipped into and out of the dress, but other than that, it was perfect!

It was very classy and stood out. Got lots of compliments :)
It fit perfectly around the shoulders and waist. It accented your shoulders so it gives you a slim figure.

Elegant material and very comfortable
The size 6 wasn't available, so i went with the 8, which still fit nicely and was roomy throughout the midsection (which I liked). Rented with Unlimited to wear to work and the length was perfect for the office. Thick material and very comfortable. The pattern and color is gorgeous in person and I received a lot of compliments. People commented that I looked like I should be at a wedding and not at work.

Conservative but striking
Reviews are right, fabric is unforgiving. I did not find that it ran small; I probably could have worn a 6 but it would have been a bit uncomfortable. Very handsome dress but not quite as showstopping as I anticipated.

Loved this dress!
Great dress! I wore it to a weddings. It fits beautifully and I got tons of compliments. If you tend to be between sizes, go with the larger size - the fabric doesn't make it an easy dress to move around in, so helpful to have a little more room if you want to dance.

Perfect wedding guest dress
Beautifully made dress, the colors are so rich! I loved everything about this dress and felt wonderful in it, the one thing to look out for is that the skirt is very tight - I had to wear the bigger size even though it was loose in my chest/arms/shoulders because the smaller size could not even get over my butt & hips. It definitely runs small. I also loved the length, it hit right at my knees and I'm 5'5'

This is a beautiful dress. The print is so rich there isn't a need for fancy jewelry with it.
This was my back up dress, but I'm happy this came because I think it was more appropriate for my event. I usually wear a size 14, but my torso is a little wider. I could have zipped the 14 but wouldn't have been able to breathe. The 16 was perfect, easy to get in and out of and fit really well. I didn't have to wear any spanx, etc because the fit was formfitting up top and looser on bottom. I wore this to the opera opening night and had to be careful getting up and down from my seat because the back slit was a little high. Other than that, fantastic dress that was very comfortable and perfect for my occasion! If you are looking for a showstopper dress, this isn't it... but it is really classy and beautiful!

Super tight!
I loved the material of this dress but found it to be incredibly tight around my rib cage, making it hard to breathe. The colors and material are beautiful, however. I did not end up wearing it but it might have worked well have a size or two larger.

Show stopper!
The dress fits true to size except the lining of the dress inside seam is a size smaller than the dress. I had trouble sitting in this dress but when I tried the size up, it was huge. This gorgeous dress has pockets and showed off my tiny waist--it was perfect for a work event! A little tight in the shoulders but overall fits true to size.

Beautiful dress that sticks out in a sea of black at a corporate event!
The color was slightly darker than I thought, but the dress is beautiful. I like the tailored look, but it was a little snug on my abdomen. The slip underneath that was part of the dress was snug around my hips and legs and I do not have big hips. This dress was perfect for the work awards banquet I attended, but I wouldn't recommend it if you plan to do a lot of dancing.

I wore this to my college reunion dinner/dancing, and I was deciding between this and another RTR dr
This was my first time renting and I was hesitant because I'm not stick thin by any means. The dress was a little tight on the bottom half, which is a problem area on me anyway, but it wasn't so uncomfortable that I couldn't sit or eat. Couldn't really lift my arms with the sleeves either but didn't really have any need to, only while dancing!! I actually really loved the cap sleeves. Didn't even need a necklace and I wore gold bangles and earrings and nude shoes. I chose this one because the other dress I rented was a maxi and wasn't going to work as well, but overall I'm really glad I rented from RTR.

Cranberry & blue and pockets, too!
Cute dress! I forced myself to step away from lace (my current obsession) this time, and this dress didn't disappoint. Overall, I'd say it fits true to size and is a nice length, but with some tight areas - the cap sleeves (hard to lift arms up) and the bottom (tight when sitting down). And the pockets are an added bonus!

Very classy and comfortable.
This dress is very classy, but the cut of the shoulders skirt are just different enough to make it interesting. The pockets are also a plus. The color is a very rich merlot in person and is super pretty.

Every one loved the way I looked. Received lots of complements.
Ordered this dress for my son's graduation ceremony and I am very happy with my choice. The dress is very comfortable. There was enough room around the waist, and it wasn't tight around the bust. The color makes the dress very unique.

Lots of compliments but wasn't my favorite
I paired this with a thin black belt as it needed something to break it up. I liked it ok - I mean it had pockets! But I wasn't as much of a fan as others. I even had strangers stop me in the airport to tell me how beautiful the dress was. But it runs really small. I'm usually an 8 - sometimes a 10. But I def needed the 12.

Great for formal military engagement photos
Love, love, loved the color(s) of this dress! And the jacquard fabric. Cap sleeves and retro silhouette also a plus. Found it to run small. I could still wear a 6 (my normal), but the waist was definitely snug and I couldn't raise my arms all the way (not an issue for photos, but for some it may be).

Great fit, even at 20 weeks pregnant!
I was nervous to rent this dress because I was 20 weeks pregnant at the time and was on the verge of showing (at the time approx. 135lbs 36C, wore a size 6 in this dress; prepregnancy was size 4, 5'5", 34B, 125lbs). It was a tad snug through the upper mid-section (expected), but fit fine (zippered up the back OK) and the folds in the front left room for the baby bump. Keep in mind there is NO STRETCH, but it still worked because of the higher waistline and roomy front. The print is really lovely! A pinkish-red and teal-blue jacquard look. Would absolutely rent this dress again when I'm not pregnant, but would think twice about renting this dress any larger than ~20-23 weeks, or if you think you're carrying high.

Great look and fantastic compliments!
The skirt narrows between your hip and the seam which is to be expected with this style. Be aware you may not be comfortable sitting for long periods of time or without something to cover your legs (like the table during our dinner reception) because you will likely need to hike up the skirt to sit comfortably. The color to the dress varies from photo to photo and depends on the lighting of the area. I kept jewelry to a minimum to let the dress speak for itself! The only oddity here is that I'm not sure the 18 was properly cleaned before I received it. Within ten minutes of putting the dress on my neck was swollen and breaking out in an allergic reaction. Thankfully it was only there and not a full body reaction. I wore the dress despite this reaction and tried not to be too conscious of what was happening between my face and the dress..

The fit is so flattering. Your waist will look very tiny. The colors are beautiful together. I got so many compliments and I will wear it again if I have an event similar to the one I wore it to.

This dress is so pretty people couldn't stop looking at it!
Pros: it's gorgeous. Unique cut and features add to the look. It's clearly a well made designer dress Cons:: It's a little tight around the thighs and when you sit down the high neck can choke a little

Elegant nice dress.
This dress was a last minute change from RTR because my original dress wouldn't make it to me in time for my event. It felt very comfortable and fit me like a glove. It may been a little more dressy than the wedding I attended in it. Would maybe be more suited for a work event or fundraiser dinner or something like that. The fabric is very nice and looks better in person than any of the photos. No complaints from me on this one.

Fancy for a work event.
I needed to wear red for a work event. This seemed a little dressy/formal so I decided not to wear it. (Also, my 12 year old son said it looked like curtains - gotta love boys) Fits true to size.

This cranberry dress with blue highlights was perfect for the occasion.
This is a standout dress. The material and design are exquisite, and the quality outstanding. I wore a size 2. I didn't even try on my back up size 4 dress. It was a little difficult to get in and out of cars, but the dress was very flattering. I didn't want to take it off at the end of the evening.

Beware of lining
Loved the style and color. LOVED the pockets. But the lining under this dress was waaaaay smaller than the dress itself on the bottom half. Couldn't comfortably wear. Glad it was my back-up option.

Classic beauty
Loved this dress. Gorgeous rich colors and weave. It does run true to size but please note that the fabric has no stretch and the cut narrows at the hemline, so my 38" hips just barely slipped through. I have a true hourglass figure once it was ok it fit just a little snugly because I'm in that between size 4&6. Lovely dress for any occasion.

Classy and flattering!
This was an overnight back up dress for a wedding I went to. Very flattering, fit extremely well. However, when I sat down everything got very tight. So go up a size. I couldn't get the 8 (my normal size) over my bum, but the 10 did the trick. Just felt a bit constricting when seated. There is no give to the fabric. But this was a very classy dress.

Not as vivid as the picture, but still a sold cocktail party dress.
The dress was long for my 5'2" frame. Also i read that the dressran small so I ordered the 10/12. I should have ordered an 8. The dress had a lot of extra fabric, but would have worked if I had ordered my true size.
