Just OK

Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This dress was adorable on the model, but for some reason the shape of the dress didn't flatter my top half. Smaller chested girls might find that this doesn't give them the curves they hope in this dress. The neckline was interesting, it was true to size, but just not my favorite.

i didnt wear it
Size worn: M
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I LOVED THIS DRESS, however i didn't wear it because the medium was just too small for me. i think if i had had a large it might have fit my chest, an important note about this dress is that it has a kind of funky detail on the chest that runs across the middle of one boob and it flattened mine out, im going to try and rent it again in a larger size and see if it would fit better. it was the perfect size every where else except my chest.

This is a going out clubbing dress, not an elegant affair dress, unless you are extremely tall & thin with amazing legs! I am 5'2" and 105 pounds. The Petite, was inappropriately short & tight, and the small was too big.

The zipper puckered on the side which made my hips look a lot wider than they should! It was a very comfy dress but chose to wear my back-up dress as I didn't find this one flattering.

Fits well, great quality AND its comfy -- people were hugging me all night and loved the feel of the dress. I was celebrating a very sentimental ocassion -- making it out of chemo. And although I wasn't feeling my best and had no hair, the dress helped me to look like I was the most beautiful woman in the room. Would highly recommend.

A bit vampy...
Size worn: S
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I had ordered the red version of this dress but since it was out of stock, this came as a replacement. I figured you can't go wrong with black, but it's a shiny, almost lycra-looking material. It looked very costume-y, and sort of matronly as well. I sent it back and was overnighted a new dress that I ended up loving even more than my original choice. No complaints from me, RTR has some of the best customer service around!

Not quite what I was hoping for
Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
The dress was nice, but not for me. The material was more shiny, and a bit cheaper feeling that I expected. The rouching did not help hide anything, but rather accentuated some parts I did not want accentuated. I am shorter with an athletic/curvy shape, so perhaps on someone taller and longer the dress would have been better. The dress itself, though, was in excellent shape, so well done RTR!

Poorly placed zipper...
Size worn: S
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I rented this dress for a party, and I was really hoping it would have fit better than it did :( It's beautiful in the photos, but the zipper is placed on the side of the dress, causing a strange ripple to occur on one side. It makes you appear to have a roll on one side of your body, and bunched up with the slightest movement. It went straight back to RTR...I'm glad I rented a backup!

feel short of expectations
Size worn: S
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I usually adore every dress that I rent, but this wasn't my cup of tea. I don't think the cut was flattering for my body type and the fabric wasn't what I expected. Overall I was a little disappointed. I found the dress to run narrow across bust which made it impossible for me to wear.

I wasn't a big fan of the rouching. It was a bit combersome. However, I love the off the shoulder . Only down side is that the other should kept dropping too. Perhaps, I am too short for this dress? I loved the shirt portion and the length.

This dress is great for any body type. Thr rouching gives smaller girls great curves while giving curvier girls smooth lines. It is the perfect LBD! It is simple enough for dinner but sassy enough for a crazy night out, Very comfortable, and everything stays in place!

Stunning dress
Size worn: L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress is amazingly flattering and sexy. The neckline is striking and glamorous. The dress is VERY form-fitting though, and although it is flattering the material is not very forgiving so spanx may be necessary to smooth out any bumps. The zipper puckers a lot which I didn't like but at an evening event or in dim lighting I doubt anyone would notice.

I wore this dress for a friend's birthday out in Atlantic City. Loved the fit, very flattering. I am normally a size 6 or 8 and wore a small. The neckline is super cute, although it is hard to raise your arms up high over your head. I would recommend renting this dress!

Pretty, but worn
Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Got many compliments on this dress, but the length was longer than expected. I'm 5' 9", and the dress was knee length - much longer than I expected based on the description. This may just have been because it was slightly worn out. Also, the small back-up dress had a tattered hem. Overall, pretty, even tough not exactly what I was expecting.

Overall fit: True to Size

This dress was perfect for my trip to Vegas. I'm a 36DD and it was perfect for my bustline. Usually, I'm frantically searching for a dress that doesn't make me look larger. This was actually flattering. Someone else in a posting mentioned that the zipper doesn't lay flat on your body and they were correct. Keep that in mind because I was pulling the pucker down all night.

Wore it for an office party. Sexy but appropriate for the event. Wore a small and it was a little tight - I had a little bunching on the sides - but the medium just looked awful. I usually wear between a 4-6. would definitely rent again.

very elegant
Size worn: S
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I loved this dress and got so many compliments. The neckline is really elegant and flattering and the rouching definitely hides unwanted areas but really shows off curves. I also loved the length of the sleeves... perfect for a late fall/winter formal (I didn't even have to wear a jacket around). My only complaint was the length. In the photo it looks great on the model but in reality it was really pretty long. I'm 5'6" and the length was way too matronly- it came pretty close to my knees. I fixed this by creating new hem with some fashion tape but it would have been nice not to have to do that. Overall though- beautiful and classy dress!

disappointed
Size worn: S
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
The waist was too loose compared to the other areas where it fit good, I think its due to prior uses of the dress by women of different body types. It was also a bit too long for my 5'4 statute. I had to use pins for the waist and shorten the length. Also one of the sides of the dress kept falling down the shoulder.

I wore this dress to an "All Black Party" on black Friday. I am a petite girl with a very curvy figure. I love how this dress accentuated my best assets. The length was a little too long for me but, I just wore a higher heel to elongate my legs.

I thought the dress fit great! It's tight, but only in the right areas. I wore this to a work event and was complimented all night on the dress. It accentuates your curves without being too tight all around. My only suggestion would be to wear very thin underwear, since the fabric isn't ruched on one side and you can see the underwear line. Great dress! I highly recommend it!

This is a cute dress, very nicely form fitting. The one complaint I have is that I am 5'4" (not that short!) and it was awkwardly long on me considering my height. I wore a small and the XS would definitely have been too tight! Other than length thought pretty flattering.

Gorgeous dress, but I was expecting it to run large based on other reviews I had read. Instead, I found the exact opposite -- my biceps did not fit in the sleeves! I do NOT have big arms by any means. Good thing I had also ordered the next size up.

Runs a little small - maybe a 1/2 size, which is common with Malandrino's dresses. I normally wear and XS and needs a S. Good thing for back-up sizes!
