Overall it was a beautifully crafted dress! I received a lot of compliments in it! The only thing is the dress is a tight fit in the hip so if you're a hippy girl size up.

Sophisticated, classy, and unique dress.

Overall fit: True to Size

I just loved this dress. I felt totally special and beautiful in it. I received tons of compliments. The sleeves are tiny bit tight, causing a little difficult raising your arms all the way over your head, but I was able to dance in it without any issues. Super flattering. It hits just above the knee--a great length. And it has pockets! I was incredibly sad to say goodbye to it.

Sophisticated with edge

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The fit on this is amazing! I have larger hips and it was a little tight when I sat down but overall the cut is great if you're a little curvy like me. The print is gorgeous. It's not too bright but it's a definite stand out dress! I wore this to a wedding in NYC and got tons of compliments. Paired it with the Lauren Merkin clutch and Kendra Scott earrings with dark green nail polish, smokey winged eye make up and nude lispstick with slicked back hair in a bun. Super sophisticated and glamorous with a little rock and roll edge. Already thinking of renting this again for future events.

It was a little tight in the sleeves and the material a little thick. I did a lot of dancing and was in southern humidity, so I was a little hot. But I don't regret wearing the dress. It was a little short on me, so I had it hemmed to make it a more "fun" length.

I wore this dress to shoot a campaign for Komen, I needed something that had structure and texture as it was shot from a profile angle. It is so classy and cut beautifully. This dress is truly a piece of art!! I suggest going up a size for your backup, I found the 0 slightly tight around the bust, but it fit perfectly everywhere else. The 2 was too big all around for me personally. The dress did have a slight tear in the back slit, but since I only wore it for the hour long shoot it was not an issue for me. I will be waiting for this one to go up for sale!!

UPDATE: I wore this dress a second time as I was selected by Crain's Business Chicago as their August "Business Model". Thank you RTR for a beautiful dress for the photo shoot!! Photo credit Shane Collins. I have to say, I am OBSESSED with this dress and it was PERFECT for taking pictures for my blog (www.the-fbombs.com)! I used my free birthday dress (seriously, Go PRO if you haven't already you get a free dress on your birthday!!) and I have to say, I could not have been happier. The color is not only stunning in pictures but it's beautiful in person, the pattern is wonderful, it is tasteful and modest (PERFECT to wear at a wedding!!) and the best part!? It has POCKETS!! All in all, rent the dress!! I have nothing bad to say about it at all. It runs very true to size (I could have worn the 2 but the 4 was just a tad more comfortable) and you will LOVE wearing it all night long!!

The bust is tight. If you get the right bra to shove them in the dress is effortlessly amazing, so anyone over a DD (the RTR size chart does not have DDD in it) be warned. The pockets are a huge advantage and the dress does allow you to drink a little and not look bloated due to the miraculous darting. I would wear this again, I just wish my bust was a little more comfortable. Not a single complaint otherwise.

Wore this to an after-work awards gala/board meeting for a professional association. Attire was "business/cocktail". I felt that this dress was absolutely perfect. The fabric is very elegant and the color is gorgeous. I am short-waisted and typically have issues with fit through the middle but this fit very well. Loved the pockets, which somehow do not make the skirt bulge. The sleeves, as mentioned in other reviews, do cut a bit but it wasn't a deal breaker, I would consider buying this dress because it's not trendy or boring-feel like you could wear it year after year and it wouldn't lose relevance. As with all the dresses I've rented through RTR, received many compliments.

Lovely dress, not as form fitting as I would have wanted.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
I am not a pattern person, much less floral, but the fabric on this dress is quite pretty. I kind of needed this to be very fitted and accentuate my hourglass shape in order to overcome how conservative it is and not feel matronly. I am on the smaller end of an 8 and the 8 didn't provide that level of fit. Maybe a smaller size would have but I hadn't ordered a backup size for that style.

This dress looks pretty in the photos but does not wear well.

Size worn: 2
Rented for: Other
I was hoping that the dress would not have the negative traits that other reviewers mentioned, but unfortunately it was not flattering at all. It was cut for a very, very petite person- Maybe someone who is extremely thin with a short torso. Although I have thin arms, under the arms was very tight, squeezing the underarm skin in an unattractive way. Because of this I didn't wear the Size 0 and sized up to the Size 2. Although the Size 2 was somewhat better under the arms, it was very baggy in the abdomen and lower back. Overall, it was not a good fit. The material and print were beautiful, but the cut was awkward.

The dress is pretty --the material is thick and good for indoor events in the winter.

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
The dress runs large, especially at the bust and waist. Although I love its beautiful pattern, I decided not to wear it to an indoor party b/c the dress has a weird crease near the bust level and the cut is quite bulky. It will be great if RTR can run a petit line to cater for a greater variety of body types.

I didn't end up wearing this for my event, as the size 12 was too tight on the thighs and the 14 was too large in the waist. I think that you have to be careful if you have a curvy body type for this one. Pretty dress though!

Pretty dress, but it didn't fit.

Size worn: NONE
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is perfect for a wedding or cocktail party. The fabric was thick and satin-y, and I don't see it wrinkling too much. Unfortunately, the size 4 gave me no room to breathe on top. My rib cage is a bit wide and I like breathing, so I didn't get to wear it.

A nicely cut dress for someone with an hourglass figure. Really nips in the waist, but had extra volume on the bottom so it wasn't too tight on the hips. Smooshed the boobs down a bit, but wasn't too bad. Only down side of the extra volume on bottom is that it bunched up a bit every once in a while so I had to keep smoothing it down. However, I would say it really wasn't that big of a problem, and I got so many compliments on it, it was still totally worth it. A very chic dress that I would definitely rent again.

I loved this dress on the model (and in many photos of fellow customers) but it did not work on my body--I am thin with curvaceous hips and the cut made me look larger in the hips than I am. Plus the length did not really flatter; it somehow gave a matronly effect. Had to return unworn. Too bad--lovely dress!

I loved the pictures of this dressed and had my fingers crossed that it would look good on a curvy girl. And it did! I got so many compliments on the dress and I loved how it looked on me. The pockets are a fun addition and they still manage to keep the hip area flattering. I would buy this dress to keep if I could afford it. The only con is it can be a little tight in the thigh area when sitting down.

Really nice dress, that was generally true to size. I rented this for my son't baptism, but unfortunately the thick fabric had zero give, which didn't work with my (larger than normal due to breastfeeding) chest size. It made me look very squeezed in/uniboob-ish, so I ended up not wearing it.
