Sophisticated, classy, and unique dress.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
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.

Overall fit: True to Size

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.

Loved this dress! I wore the 4 but I think a 6 would have been a little more comfortable for me. It is snug on top with a little more room on the bottom. Also I think the waist would have fallen a tad lower with a larger size. Still loved it! Customer service was AMAZING, the original dress I received seemed like it was not pressed properly so I called and explained...no question asked and they shipped me a new dress to my hotel overnight at no charge! The new dress was pressed perfectly! The first picture shows the color much better...I wish I added a chunky statement necklace!!

This dress was classy, comfortable and a great choice for a friends bridal shower. I rented a 6 and 8, the 6 fit great. I would recommend this beautiful dress to anyone and I think it would work for many occasions. The only thing that bothered me were the snug/restrictive cap sleeves.

I really enjoyed wearing this dress to a religious service. It was very appropriate for that - dressy and pretty yet conservative. The fabric is beautiful - color is great, has a sheen and a bit of texture with the pattern. A few little bothersome details - the neck is high and you can feel it when you sit down, and the inside slip is a bit tight. But you can't see those issues and they were only minor irritants.

Rented this for my friends catholic wedding which I was a reader. It was classy and conservative for the occasion but I still felt beautiful in it. I loved the the fabric. Giving this 4 stars because it has no stretch. Fits pretty true to size but since I knew I would be dancing all night I opted to size up. I'm 5'4" so this hit me right above my knees. I also liked that this dress had pockets!

The 4 was a smidge too big on me and the 2 was just a wee bit tight, but I wore the 2 because the fit looked better. However, after dinner I was really wishing I had the 4 in my car to change into!! :) The sleeves are very cute, but your arm range is limited. It wasn't the most comfortable dress I've ever worm, but it was really cute and different and I was very happy with my rental!

I am usually a 4, sometimes a 6. The 4 fit perfect. I wore it to my daughters 5th grade speech and then on to my stepdaughters bridesmaids luncheon. Received many compliments and knew no one else would be wearing the same dress to the party! I am a 34D and it was not too tight. Perfect length for my age. Fabric was thick and beautiful. The colors are amazing.

At first the dress was a little tight at the arms but once I had it on for a few hours it gave a lot more. It truly did fit like a glove and was one of the more comfortable dresses I've worn. The color was great as well, not too blue just perfect for a fall wedding in Chicago! I'd honestly rent this dress again I loved it so much.

Beautiful dress - made me stand out in a crowd!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I absolutely loved this dress and received so many compliments on it the entire night I wore it. The dress was a perfect choice for a fall wedding. It fit true to size (I sized up for my second choice based on other reviews, but didn't even need to try it on). The length was different for me, but for a formal event having the dress hit at my knees felt very appropriate. I had read comments about some saying that the sleeves on the dress could be tight - I did not have that problem at all; the only time that the dress felt a bit tight was when I sat down for dinner (hugged my thighs a bit, but I do have a curvy figure). It was not uncomfortable, just noticeable for myself. I was able to dance and walk around without any problems. I would absolutely rent this one again - and plan to rent it in a different color for a spring wedding that is coming up.

The fit is pretty true to size. The lining in the inside of the dress is tight, so if you are a women with hips, like myself, you may have to go a size up. If the lining wasn't so tight (bc I am smaller up top) I may have been able to pull off a size 4. Overall the dress is great. Also keep in mind, in the photo of the model, the dress is below her knees, this is not the case for the dress you will receive. The dress is just above the knee, but still fits great!

Beautiful dress

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This is a beautiful dress! It is great for a late fall wedding. It is classy but still a fun color/print, and I liked the structured shoulders and front of the dress (this also means you don't have to worry if you eat a big dinner because it is not tight around your stomach!). The size 6 was a little snug around my chest and I couldn't lift my arms as comfortably, but it fit everywhere else great. The size 8 fit my chest well but looked big everywhere else - so I went with the 6. Received a lot of complements throughout the night and felt really comfortable. I wore with black/gray strappy heels. I didn't want to send this back!

This dress was amazing! I rented both a 12 and a 10 as a backup. It definitely runs large. I normally wear a 12 but wore the 10 to the show. Both fit fine but the 10 looked better.

The shoulders are definitely tight (as mentioned in previous reviews) but it wasn't uncomfortable. I did NOT want to return this dress I loved it so much! Will rent again!

I was worried because the fabric doesn't like have a lot of give...or so I thought. It stretches a little bit but not too much.
