Comfortable and feminine
This dress was so comfortable and pretty for a spring wedding. Loved the pockets, was able to carry my phone and did not need a purse. I am 5'10" and was nervous length would mid-thigh but was pleasantly surprised it hit at modest above knee length on me. Great first rental experience.

Amazing dress!
This was not the dress I had originally selected, since there was an issue with my order. RTR was very attentive and went the extra mile trying to find me a replacement dress. I couldn't be happier with the dress I ended up with. It fit perfectly, and was a great dress to wear to my cousin's baptism. I received so many compliments, so sad to have to return this dress!

Fabulously comfortable & pretty!
Another winner!! I wore this to my daughter's graduation and was comfortable all day! The material is so soft and fit perfectly in all the right places! Although a heavier fabric, it wasn't too warm at all. I actually wore a white shrug to cover my arms for air/conditioned coolness. I recommend this dress 100%!

LOVED this dress!!!
Pictures just don't give this dress the credit it deserves! I wore this dress to a wedding in Milwaukee. I LOVED IT!! It fit so well, didn't look too conservative or flowery, and was super comfortable to wear. I WILL def rent this dress again! Size 2 fit me best...maybe even a little big & so I didn't try on the size 4.

High waistline...
The material is one of my favorites. I've ordered several pieces made of the scuba material, and ever one has been a winner. For someone with a much higher natural waist, this probably would have fit perfectly. Unfortunately for me, with a longer than average torso, it just didn't hit right. The coloring and pattern are beautiful. It didn't feel heavy or clunky. I highly recommend sizing down. I'm typically and 8 and could have easily fit into a 6 or 4 with the feel of stretch the fabric offered. In the case of sizing down, though, I always recommend getting full body shaper from Spanx. The material has a tendency to show every bra line.

Fabulous with my favorite heels! Uh uh, honey, lay offa them shoes..
Beautiful fabric, great fit. I loved the raw edged seams, and got tons of compliments. Yes I'm as big as I look... The dress works great with wide shoulders and for tall girls. Worn with a blue Kate Spade and Limited edition blue Disney Cinderella heels. I wore this to church but works for almost anything due to the luxurious print of the fabric.

Fun fabric, but not great for someone with a large bust.
I was looking forward to wearing this dress, but was disappointed when it arrived. The fabric is a lot of fun - like scuba gear. But the cut of the waistline was far too high for my bust, and the rest of the skirt flared in a way that made me look pregnant.

A piece of art
Beautiful colors, pictures don't do it justice. Comfortable, love the scuba material and it has POCKETS! Was a bit tight on my rib cage but i should have ordered the 12 from the get go. Easy to dance, drink and eat it. Not as much of a "showstopper" dress, but definitely gorgeous.

This was my first RTR and I was blown away w/ the ease of it all, from selection to delivery!
This dress was amazing! Comfortable, gorgeous pattern (the picture here isn't the best lighting), perfect length and I got so many compliments! The material was great, but definitely didn't have too much "breathe" to it - I was comfortable all night tho (outdoor wedding and no AC in building at all!).

Unique and elegant
Light weight fabric- good for warmer weather (I wore it to a daytime wedding in the summer). Longer length than I expected- needed to be worn with heels. Lots of compliments on the colors/design. True to size.

Pretty and well cut. Very flattering!
The dress fit well but the only thing that was a bit strange was that it had a tight waistband. Regardless, it was cut really well and I got tons of compliments when I wore it!

Unusual fabric, pretty pattern.
The neoprene fabric of this dress appealed to me, although it's not very obvious that it's neoprene. I had to wear a larger size because I'm short waisted and have a large rib cage, so the smallest part of the dress hit in the wrong place. There is no stretch at the waist, so it's not as forgiving as I hoped. Overall, I had high expectations for the dress to be unique and it didn't feel very special. I wouldn't rent again at $75.

Great fit!
Heavier fabric, good for spring before it gets too warm. Plenty of room on top. Very cute dress, though there is a lot of material on the bottom half, which made my rear look tremendously large- but you can tell it's the dress.

Very different and unique
I am in between sizes, usually 12 or 14 (I'm 5'3" 160lbs 36D) This dress was sent to me as a backup when my original dress became unavailable. The dress material is different but kinda cool in the scuba material. It has some stretch but not in the waist where the seam is. Fit on me was a tad tight, but still wearable (it did get a little uncomfortable after eating dinner and drinking!) I loved that the dress was something totally different than what I would haunt wear and more fun than a plain LBD.

Great look
Dress was well made. Received compliments. Husband says he liked it, but when I expressed concern that it made my post baby body look fat, he replied that "No, it just makes you look big boned." Surprisingly, we are still married. Ultimately if you need a slimming dress, this isn't it.

Fun for any occasion
Rented for a rehearsal dinner and was perfect for something fun. The scuba material is easy to wear. It doesn't really run small but the 0 was a bit tight at the waist as there is a piece that is not stretchy around. Perfect otherwise.

Whimsical and fun!
This dress is so fun and pretty. It is VERY fitted at the natural waist. Since I have a larger rib cage I couldn't get it zipped up. Bummed I couldn't wear it, but will rent again in the next size up.

Great dress for work event!
I rented this dress for a networking work event through unlimited. Super cute dress, fits well. I am typically a size 2 or 4 I had put on some weight and size 6 fits perfectly. Dress cinches the waist and looks great. I wore with a belt and a black cardi since it is cold this time of year. Would be pretty with no stockings and nude shoes in the spring. Only complaint, looks a little worn out on the seams.

Amazing colors
This dress was perfect for a special day at church. Colors in dress popped off the fabric without being loud. Very nice water color blending can be worn in spring, fall or even year-round in Florida :-) Although dress is sleeveless, the high neckline and Aline bottom make it appropriate for any occasion. I added a black skinny belt and royal blue pumps. I will wear this again.

Perfect dress for an after work fundraiser
These were marked women's sizes, but didn't run as large as 14W / 16W usually would, especially at the waist. Great thick fabric is soft, colors are vibrant. Lots of complements! Wear a bra that fastens like a halter to be sure straps don't show. Great length, not too short.
