The dress did fit well, but the top fitting was a tad off. No one could tell, but me. I plan on using RTR+ for Mardi Gras Balls!!

This was my first time using RTR. Their customer service is WONDERFUL!

This dress is beautiful! It has a great texture and slight shimmer. It was a bit tight in the chest. I don't have a full bust, so that part of a dress is usually too large for me. I loved this dress and was sad to have to ship it away!

Super cute dress and super comfy!

Size worn: 16W
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is a Misses 16, not a Women's, which I was expecting and ordered the 18W as my back up. I was so pleased that the 16 fit -- a little snug at the waistband, but over all solid fit. The shoulders bunched a little, but it was less noticeable once I used the bra strap hooks. There is a little sheen to some of the black in the pattern, which was nice. Over all, this was a lovely dress and I enjoyed wearing it all night. It was a little sad to see it go home...

This dress made me feel like a princess!

Size worn: 20W
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
This dress fit perfectly in all the right places! It was so figure flattering, and comfortable! I had to size down, thankfully I ordered two sizes,. The blue is more of a cobalt, than is showing in the picture but I still loved it. I recommend a statement necklace to go with it to give the dress a little sass, but ultimately it was a fabulous find! I didn't want to return it!

There wasn't much difference in the size between the 18 and 20. I wore this out to valentines day date night so I opted for the 20 so I had enough breathing room. I was impressed in the quality of the dress, fabric, stitching, etc. it also had pockets which was a nice plus!

Beautiful brocade dress! It was my back-up dress. Sad I did not have a second event this weekend!

Size worn: 14W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This was my back-up dress to another one by the same designer. Online, it is called out as a 14W, but the tag says 14. Fit well in the bust (38D) but maybe was a bit snug in the back, but definitely doable if I wore a shaping under garment. The side pockets and flirty shirt seemed like a lot of fun, but I chose the other green dress because my husband loved the green and the party was having a St. Patty's theme. I may choose to rent this for another event in the near future.

Size worn: 16W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Loved the fit, cute little pockets, color, and length. I felt very stylish. My chest was slightly squashed, but I am a 38H, so that's not too indicative of the dress running small. Would recommend this to anyone!

Perfect dress! I've rented this for two weddings. It's comfortable and classy. It fits well on top for a fuller chest and hits right above the knee. The blue is a much more prominent color than the picture shows.

Amazing dress for the price!!

Size worn: 16W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I know that's not the best overall photo - but the only one I had, and I wanted everyone to see what a beautiful color this dress is! It's very pretty. I loved how it flared out at the waist and had the box pleats. My only complaint is that I am not sure I had a long enough torso for it, and probably need to loose another inch from my waist for it really to have fit properly, but thanks to spanx that helped a bit! Very happy with the overall experience at RTR.

I rented the dress for my friend's wedding, just to have something a little more fun and special.

Size worn: 22W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I rented a size 20 and 22 as a backup. I ended up fitting in both, but wore the 22 because the fit was not a huge difference and it seemed shorter than the smaller size. That might be my only complaint, is on my 5'6" frame it was slightly long for my taste. Other than that I loved the fit, and the pockets were a nice asset! I have large breasts so anything that allows me to breathe and dance and have fun gets an A in my book! I would recommend it to any full-figured girl with a special event coming up. Can't beat a designer dress for that price!

Three events, one day, one dress

Size worn: 18W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
I love this dress. I would like to own it and have it tailored for me. I wore it for pictures at work, used it in a video and then went to an event! Three birds, one dress. The waist hit me perfectly. I'm hourglass and high waisted. I added the pink belt and pink lip to try to make it a little more summery. But it is a heavy material. A little longer than I like. But made for a great day and night!

Love the dress! This dress is great for a pear shape woman. I should have gotten a smaller size but the shoulders and arm holes fit. I'm 5"9 and the dress hit right at the knee. There is plenty of room in the waist/hip area so I should have gotten an 18 which would have fit my upper body a little better. Awesome lace and rich blue color, I'm very pleased!

I wore this dress to a friends wedding last weekend and everything was absolutely perfect!

Size worn: 20W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The dress looked great! It was a little scratchy on the inside and the zipper stuck a bit but overall the look and feel of the dress was just what I was looking for. I'm 5' 7" and the dress came to my knees. The dress was true to size but the bust seems to be cut slightly on the large side. Regardless the dress was very flattering (and has pockets!). I would definitely rent this dress again!

A stand out in the crowd kind of dress!

Size worn: 22W
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
The fit was a little small. I normally wear a 20 and couldn't get it zipped at all. The 22 zipped but it is really snug across the stomach and chest. At first I didn't think I was going to be able to pull it off...but with a pair of spanx and giving it some time, the dress was comfortable. I got a ton of compliments from guests at the wedding. I really loved that this dress has pockets! It was so helpful to stuff all my tissues in the pockets during the wedding ceremony. This dress made me feel like a million bucks!

The dress has a shimmer that pictures cannot do justice. It was a little chilly that day, which was just fine because the fabric was thicker than expected. I felt glam and received many compliments. The delivery and return of the dress was so easy. There was nothing like seeing the package on my door step after work! I've already reserved my next dress for Vegas in a couple of weeks!

This dress is GORGEOUS. The photos don't do it justice. The blue is deep and very striking. The fit is very flattering. The dress was just a little tight around the midsection, but manageable. I would definitely rent this dress again in the future.

Ladylike but still sexy

Size worn: 16W
Rented for: Party
Nicely cut torso on me, pretty dark fabric, and POCKETS! Hurrah! Could work for either dressy day or evening, so I did both over one weekend! Wish it were a titch shorter - I'm 5'6" and it was just below knee, which is a look, but not my favorite. Great foil for a glam necklace. Very Mad Men!

I love having a new beautiful dress to wear to my husband's art shows. The dress still looked good in fluorescent light, but less sparkly. I wore the 16w because it is tight around the ribs. It fit well, a nice length skirt and you can wear a regular bra. It was another successful dress!

Didn't work like I wanted :(

Size worn: 22W
Overall fit: True to Size

Rented this for a wedding and had to return due to it not fitting. I will say though as a disclaimer - I had gained some weight and was still trying to get back into pre-baby shape so I may have been a little ambitious on what size I THOUGHT I could wear. I have most of my excess weight in belly/hips/thighs and rear and it would have probably been perfect had I been a size or two smaller, overall. It is beautifully made and I loved the pockets! Shame I couldn't wear it.

Second Try Was Perfect!

Size worn: 18W
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this a month ago for an event and based on reviews and pictures I got a bigger size. When it arrived it was way too big so I couldn't wear it. I rented it again for a wedding this past weekend and got two sizes smaller and it was perfect. Really comfortable and the pockets are the best! I'm 5'10 and it hit me about an inch over the knee. It does ride up when sitting. Paired it with the Nicole Miller Southern plantation earrings and they looked great. Would definitely recommend this dress.

Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I loved this dress - it was short but dressy and perfect for a day wedding. The color really popped and shined. I normally wear an 18 and the 20 fit comfortably so I went with that. I would say it was slightly long for my 5'3 frame. My ONLY criticism of the dress is that the pleats made my stomach pop out a bit. But other than that I loved it.

Amazing dress, got so many compliments

Size worn: 20W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is beautiful. I loved how some of the black detailing was shimmery, added that extra hint of glamour. I was very pleased with the weight of the fabric, which hid all the little bumps and lumps nicely. I was thrilled to find out about half way through my night that the dress has POCKETS!!! For my first RTR experience it was really a home run!
