Great birthday dress!

Size worn: 20W
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
The dress was comfortable and flattering. The ruching nicely hides any bulges. The 18 was too small in the upper arms, though it fit nicely in the hips, so I wore the 20 and had plenty of room in it without the dress looking too big. My arms didn't have a full range of motion with the off-the-shoulder cut, so reaching up for anything was out of the question. The little fabric loops that you use to hang the dress stuck straight up above the collar, so I had to use four safety pins to keep them hidden. There are short zippers on the sleeves, which I didn't understand, as the sleeves were plenty large even zipped. Overall the dress was great and I received several compliments about it.

Not true to size at all!

Size worn: 18W
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
Dress runs very small. I am usually a 14/16 - I ordered this as a backup dress in size 18 thinking it would work considering others had commented on how small it runs. I was able to wear the dress but it was not comfortable at all. The sleeves were way too tight and there was hardly any stretch to them. It's a beautiful dress but was ultimately a complete waste of $$.

Gold perfection

Size worn: 16W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The dress was so flattering. I have such a hard shape for which to dress; I wear a 36g bra and a size 10 pants with no hips. Certainly not the typical hourglass figure. I think the neckline was wide enough to allow give for my bust. The asymmetrical ruching at the waist gave me a waist. Loved the long sleeves at this early spring event; kept me warm. The gold was so very gold and really stood out in a sea of black dresses.

This dress was a definite show stopper. It is a dress that is definitely all about balance.

I ordered this dress in a 14 and a 16W. Since I've recently lost quite a bit of weight, the RTR stylist granted me the ability to order the same dress from the regular and plus size collections. The 14 fit amazing but the arms were too snug and I wanted to be as comfortable as possible. The 16W fit ok as well but the middle was a little baggy. Luckily, the ruching of the dress made that nearly undetectable. Also, the lining peeked out a few times and I had to put my boyfriend on watch for the hanger straps. There are four and they kept coming up as well. Overall, I was comfortable the entire night and got many, many compliments. This dress is the right amount of conservative, glam, and sexy.

in this dress the reviews helped me alot in choosing what size & I didn't receive any surprises due to the many true and good reviews given. This dress is worth all the hassle! The dress is indeed cut weird & SMALL on top so the sleeves and area was tight so I had to wear my back up dress. Read the reviews and u should be good

Loved wearing this dress to Full Figured Fashion Week Friday, June 20th. Lots of compliments!

Size worn: 20W
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
i normally wear a size 18w or 16w, but i followed everyone's advice and ordered a size 20w and 22W since its cut small and the 20W worked perfectly with my strapless bra and Higher Power Spanx. The only thing that drove me crazy were those little loops for hanging the dress on a hanger...they need to be safety-pinned down inside before you put the dress on or else they will keep popping out. Also i had to put some pins on the hem because the lining kept peeking down from the hem. Otherwise, its a great dress!

Had to wear larger size due to the arms of the dress. The hanger straps had to be kept tucking in as they are on the outside of the dress almost. Confortable and easy to dance in. Look forward to renting again

I love this dress! I felt glamorous and wonderful in this dress. Several people gave compliments on the dress and asked where it came from. The fit is a bit tight around the bust and shoulders but was true to size overall.

I keep coming back and am always happy with the customer service and the beautiful dresses. They always run a little smaller than what they say but I have figured it out and am able to order larger sizes. I got so many compliments and was actually a bit over dressed for the event. But it was beautiful and fit perfect! I can't wait for my next event.

Gorgeous fabric!

Size worn: 16W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I was worried this dress was a little too granny (No offense, RTR...but you need to pick up the slack in the plus size department...), but once I put it on with some pointy-toed pumps and edgier, dark lipstick, i felt super chic and classic, but not OLD. The color was gorgeous for a fall wedding, and I received a lot of compliments since it was unlike anything others were wearing. I almost want to say this dress runs a bit large...I think I could've worn the 14, but when I was attempting to zip it up alone, I had a much easier time in the 16 due to extra fabric, so I just stuck with it. It's super comfortable with shirring that isn't obvious and very stretchy fabric. Even the arms/shoulders weren't bad once it was completely zipped up! They didn't slip or anything, but the 16 definitely allowed more room in the upper arms.

Overall fit: True to Size

SHOW STOPPER! I almost felt bad for wearing it to my best friends wedding it was such a sensational dress. Looked amazing. and for a plus size it doesn't feel like a plus size or "frumpy dress" . Felt like a million bucks and looked like it too! Really mad we didn't get any pictures! TONS of compliments. Loved it so much I wanted to keep it!

Beautiful and elegant dress with lots of sparkle!!!

Size worn: 22W
Rented for: Formal Affair
Dress runs small, I usually wear a size 18 however from previous reviews I knew to order a size or two up, thank goodness I did because I wore the largest of the two dresses. And the dress was still snug yet loose in bust and shoulder area on me. Dress itself had beautiful detail and lots of sparkle, elegant yet fun and eye catching. I got many compliments throughout the night and truly did feel great in the dress however I was a little self conscious of the tummy area. There is a flattering rueshing effect, however, it does not work miracles. Dress hugs all your curves, and shows off all of figure. Wear with confidence!!!

The dress does run a bit small. I normally wear a size 14 and I got this in a size 16w, I'm a pretty curvy girl and it was a bit snug in the booty area - but was ultimately 'wearable'. I got so many compliments on this dress and would absolutely recommend it for a fall or winter event.

Beautiful dress for a formal dinner at the Ritz

Size worn: 18W
Rented for: Other
This dress fit nicely and was very comfortable. It was cold out so the long sleeves were nice. The reason I gave 4 out of 5 stars is because the lining was hanging out below the hem of the dress and you could see it. Luckily it was a nude tone fabric. I tend to carry extra weight in my stomach and usually everything is tight and uncomfortable in that area. This dress was not. I am also very busty (larger than the size they have available for the review).

Golden Goddess but...........

Size worn: 18W
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I rented the dress for a daytime wedding. It is very sexy and very tasteful. The dress runs extremely small. Don't let the W on the larger sizes fool you, they still run small. I usually wear a Misses size 16. I ordered the 16W & 18W. That was a mistake. The 16W was way too tight, the 18W was better and I wore that to the wedding. A size 20 would have been perfect. If you are considering renting this dress, expect to go up 2 sizes. I made due with a pair of Spanxs and I did not wear pantyhose. The range of motion on the arms are limited because it was a little snug on me. I live alone and could not manage to zip it all the way up. I received assistance from a friend. The 4 hanger loops in the dress are short and will come up everytime you move. You will need to use a safety pin to keep them in place. Lastly the lining has a habit of peeking through the bottom. All in all, a very pretty dress. You will look amazing but it's a bit of a pain to wear.

Feeling Curvy & Classy

Size worn: 22W
Rented for: Wedding
This does run small... I usually wear an 18/20 but went with the 22 to feel comfortable. The dress is a perfect fit with some good spanx lol . The material was surprisingly comfortable and not itchy! I got a lot of great compliments for the country club wedding. The neckline was sexy too with a little off the shoulder action.
