Great color and it has pockets!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
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!!

Super classy, beautiful pattern

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I should have known better after reading other reviews that this fabric had no give to it. The 4 was way too big/boxy in the bust for me, but the 2 was a bit snug on my bottom half (definitely made for a tough evening of wedding dancing). Overall though, loved the color, pattern and cut. Loved dressing this up with purple shoes and simple gold jewelry.

The high neckline was great and I paired it with a RtR necklace. The size 2 fit well in the waist but was large in the bust. The length was perfect for my height. it was the perfect weight for cool San Diego weather and for inside a conference hall all day.

Gorgeous fabric and structure

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Loved the color, fit, fabric, and style of this dress - was complimented by a stranger the moment I walked into the event! I wore this dress to an Illinois country club wedding in June (forgive my bathroom selfie), and even though it is a heavier fabric, I was still comfortable in humid weather with lots of dancing. I fluctuate between a 12 and 14 depending on designer and the fit of the dress, and the 12 was the right choice for my body type (broad hourglass) in this style. The dress had great structure and a flattering cut. The fabric had beautiful blue and teal tones with a sheen that is hard to capture in photos, but it should be noted that it doesn't have any stretch or give, so while I didn't have any trouble dancing in it, don't expect to be able to do any yoga moves or go too crazy dropping it like it's hot.

Looked like a piece of art.

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress for an outdoor wedding in a rose garden; very appropriate for the setting! Although it was nice that it was fully-lined, the dress was a little heavy for a hot summer day. I was sweating on/off most of the day and none of the perspiration appeared on the dress. The dress has pockets which is awesome but they sat a little far back which made them kind of awkward and seemed to make the dress puff out a bit. Along with the heavy fabric, it had zero stretch. It was very difficult to sit in the car and at my dinner table. The sleeves made it difficult to put my hands/arms up while dancing (which we did a lot because it was a Bosnian wedding!). The neckline was also a little tight and constricted my neck when bending over. Overall it is a nice structured dress that I would recommend for an event with little movement. I probably would not rent this dress again.

Wonderful thick, rich fabric (though not too hot for an 80 degree sunny wedding day)! Size 0 fit incredibly well though it was somewhat tighter fit when I placed my hands in my pockets (Size 2 may have been little looser in hips, but it didn't cinch the waist as well). Bonus: iPhone easily slipped into pocket without being noticeable!

Great color and structure!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I would say this dress is more of a stand still, look pretty piece due to the structure of the dress. I ended up going with my larger back up size because I have a broad ribcage and a set of shoulders. The bottom half of the dress fit larger than the top as a result, but I was more comfortable. There is a silk-like lining so I wouldn't recommend for hot/humid climates if the event is outdoors.

Size and color true to my expectations!

Size worn: 8
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is perfection. I was a bridesmaid for a small wedding. We were each asked to pick a flattering dress in teal. I was the last of the three women to choose. I had the charge of creating cohesion among the three dresses. I needed a dress that had a subtle pattern and flattered two different shades of teal. The color was spot on. The pattern was subtle. And the fit was sexy, yet formal. Exactly what I expected and needed. I'm neither hourglass nor pear shape (smaller bust, slimmer hips, but curvaceous backside). The dress is body conscious in the hips as others have mentioned. I would not say that it "runs small" but rather hugs the body in the hips. I had room to sit, dance and "event manage". I used cup inserts to create a more dramatic bust line. That also accentuated my waist. I'm excited to wear this designer again and use this service.

I rented this for a work event so I really needed comfort - this fit the bill. It is shinier than in the original photos but that just makes it pop more. It doesn't accentuate anything but it is still flattering and definitely good for a long night

I loved this dress and got so many compliments. It was stylish, comfortable, & modest for a wedding.

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I usually wear size 10 in dresses, but went with the size 12 since the top/bust ran small on the size 10. I loved the colors and felt really confident and comfortable all night. The pleats, high waist, and thick material were flattering for my tummy area. And there was even hidden pockets for my phone. I didn't want to return this dress.

Flattens your boobs so you can't wear a bra if you are busty. But the cut of the dress is flattering and the pockets are great.

Size worn: 6

The size 4 fit like a literal glove and looked SO great but I wore the 6 because I needed to be able to sit down for many hours. The 4 definitely looked better and had I not had to be seated for so long I would have worn that size. If you are pear shaped, you'll probably need to size up. I'm 5'3" for comparison's sake and have broad shoulders. No issues with the shoulders!

Great for Spring wedding

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress arrived and I was slightly disappointed because the color of the dress on the website is brighter/richer than when I saw it in real life. But, the overall fit was good - it was a big tight when sitting around my hips/butt but nothing too crazy to worry about. The length was great, sleeves were comfortable and I loved the pockets. It is a ticker material which was good for a spring wedding since it was short sleeved. I paired it with a grey leather jacket and open toed nude sandals.

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size

Overall, the dress fit nicely; it was a little big in the shoulders and the waist (a great option for women with curves, but it fit a tad bulky on my curve-less frame). Lots of compliments! Several women asked if it was a vintage dress. Only complaint was that the dress doesn't seem to have been properly cleaned since the last wearer - there was definitely a lingering sweat smell that I wasn't too thrilled about.

Cool, Futuristic, Classy

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
Love this dress -- except, for my tall or long-waisted ladies, this one is definitely short waisted. The waistline sat a solid 1.5-2 inches above my natural waist, so the dress was not as flattering as it could have been had it been made for taller girls. It also ran a tad big. All that said, the design and the fabric of the dress are super cool and it's definitely an unusual, unexpected choice. Glad I gave it a shot.

Classy cut with a funky patter.

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Fit really well and snug around the waist, knees and shoulder - but not uncomfortable. It was rather limited in the overall movement due to tight seams. So if you are wearing this to an event where you plan to dance hard, might want to look for another option with more movement and flow. But it was a beautiful dress, styled really well and received a lot of compliments.

Usually I'm a 0 or 2, but the 0 wasn't available, but luckily the 2 ended up being a great fit. Such a beautiful dress! Wish I had rented (or owned) a perfect statement necklace but I made do with a longer one. Felt lovely and springy! Remember to stand up straight because the skirt does poof a bit around the hips, but I still loved this dress. Arrived in great condition too!

Amazing dress for a southern garden wedding!

Size worn: 10
Rented for: Wedding
This dress fit like a glove. It was very comfortable. Due to the cap sleeves I couldn't raise my arms above my shoulders. This wasn't an issue though, as there was no dancing happening in this dress for this event! If I could've kept this dress I would have in a heartbeat. I received so many compliments. My husband thought it was the best of all the dresses I wore the whole weekend (this was a 3 day event wedding!) My first RTR experience was great. I did have the foresight to go to Neiman Marcus & try on this designer for sizing to make sure how it would fit before I rented. I will do that in the future for other rentals of possible!

It's a safe dress.

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This dress didn't wow me. I was going to a bridal shower and I didn't have anything to wear so I decided to rent a cheap RTR dress. I wanted to go with something that was true to size (I'm usually a size 6 but winter weight has me at an 8) and looked like it would look good without getting a back-up. This dress did the trick. I was actually complimented by the bride on my dress so I'm happy I got a good option. I guess I just wasn't blown away by it. It's safe and very comfortable so if that's what you're looking for, go for it!

The dress is true to size. I'm usually a size 8 and I wore the 8. There is no stretch in the fabric but it was still comfortable. Initially, I thought the color might be too bright. But it actually wasn't. It was a perfect, sophisticated teal. I kept getting compliments all night. Highly recommended.

I was presenting at a large conference, and needed to look perfect. As a young attorney, it is difficult to find clothes that are fun and stylish yet don't impair credibility. This dress was a perfect fit for my event, and made me look like a million bucks. PLUS it has POCKETS!!!!! The top is snug, even for small chested ladies like me, so order a size up if you're a C or above (I'm an A/B). I would totally order this dress AGAIN!

I wore this dress to a friend's wedding. I originally thought that the 8 would be the perfect size but this dress does run a little bit large. The 6 was perfect but I did notice that it was a little snug in the neckline. Other than that, I loved this dress- the fact that it has pockets was also great, and I was even able to add a belt for an extra accessory :) I would definitely rent this dress again!

This was my first rental and I was overwhelmed at how easy the RTR process was. Love it!

Size worn: 6
Rented for: Other
Many of the reviews said it ran small, so my back-up size was one size larger. I tried on the 6 and it was a perfect fit! I notice many people also noted it was tight around the arms when dancing (putting your arms up); I didn't have that issue, but I did notice that when lifting my arms the capped sleeves would sometimes fold under. I wore this dress to the LA Ballet's showing of The Sleeping Beauty. I was so comfortable to walk around in and sit in. I got many compliments on the dress, even from strangers! I would rent this dress again, for sure. I would highly recommend this dress for a semi-formal affair. I loved the simplicity of this dress. I could have worn a statement necklace (though that would have hidden the beautiful neckline) to really dress it up. I wore simple peridot drop earrings and nothing more. You can really make this dress "yours".

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Date
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. It was perfect for an afternoon at the show. The material was also perfect for a winter day in the city. 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!
