Unique and fun
Love the neoprene material (scuba suit) as it helped suck everything in, and the pattern was super interesting and pretty. All of the comments prior are accurate: you can wear a bra with this (pro!) but the skirt does ride up around the stomach when you walk (con!). I would recommend trying spanx with it as it was pretty body-con around the waist , if you have any concerns. Otherwise great dress and true to size!

Too tight in chest
I got athletic figure with all the right curves and thin waist. I thought this dress would showcase my figure, instead it turned it into a tube shaped nothingness. It was too big in waist, it squished my breasts and the buttocks . The print is interesting and unique though. I ended up wearing it to a friend's birthday party, but didn't feel neither comfortable nor pretty in it. Also neoprene like material made me feel hot in a summer night.

Fits like a glove
Dress is HOT! No zipper ..looks tiny and pull on over your head. Comfortable--relatively--got only the small ...wore it to "the grooms'reception for my nephew's wedding & it was my second dress for $32.00... I only ordered the small as I wear a 4 or 6 but I am larger on the bottom and a medium would've been too big... can't wait to use RTR again!!! #partyon #funweddingevents

Too clingy
Just to form fitting for me to wear to work. I think a bigger size would have resulted in gaps in the arm holes... Fun pattern though & extremely comfortable.

Unique pattern
I have rented smalls in this brand in the past but decided to go up for a slightly looser fit. Love the fabric and fun, unique pattern. Such an easy dress to wear for a night out.

Runs small
I have worn this brand several times and this one seemed to run smaller than the others. I probably could have gotten away with wearing it, but I thought the way the print fell on my body was really unattractive. Sent it right back.

Loved this dress
This dress was so comfortable and looked amazing. I received many compliments and I felt great in it. I wish I could buy this dress. I chose to wear the large so it was a little more forgiving but I could have worn the medium.

I loved the mixed print and color combination!
The dress had the most comfortable fit. The large fit best around my rear :) I paired it with black tights and heels since the event was during the winter. I received such kind comments from people and would most certainly recommend this piece!

Unique and comfortable
I love the scuba-like material that clover canyon is known for. Hides imperfections and very flattering! This one was a little short at 5'9" so I wore flats with it to work. I should have probably sized up, as the dress kept riding up as I walked. Very different pattern. Extremely comfortable!

Held the tummy in!
The dress fit beautifully and held in the tummy, it did bunch up a little bit and I had to keep pulling it down overall I would rent it again.

Stunning dress!
Great dress, beautiful print and form fitting to accentuate the curves! I ended up going with the other dress I rented because that one had long sleeves. Too cold to wear sleeveless.

For a Vegas night out
I rented a small for some reason my review would only let me select XS. I am never an XS! I am usually a Med but every once in a while depending on the dress I can fit into a small and that was this one- it is tight but the material is so nice and thick it holds in those troublesome areas we all are self conscious about. I loved the material and I loved the way the dress fit (like a glove) -I docked my rating from a 5 to a 4 only because I wasn't the craziest about the pattern. I had actually rented a totally different dress 1st and had it delivered to the Vegas store (which I highly recommend for Las Vegas trips) . The nice thing about having it shipped to the store is you try the dress on right there and if you don't like it you can return the dress then for a refund or exchange it for a different dress- so that is how I came to rent this dress by exchange.

Great day to night potential
Colors were a little more muted than expected - love the scuba fabric. I rented a large but I think medium would probably fit better - extra fabric was ok for work though so that the back wasn't too tight. Definitely easy to transition from work to dinner out!

Unique Print!
I rented this dress for a retirement party. I wore the size small because it seemed to be a better fit. I am usually a medium, but I would say that the dress runs true to size, a little big. I would love the dress if it did not bunch up around the mid-section. I found that I would constantly have to pull the dress down. In addition, when I got home, I noticed that the bottom of the dress was completely off center. This happened a few times during the night and I had to go to the ladies room to re-adjust. At the end of the night though, it was completely over to the side. Oh well… it was a fun, unique dress.

Fun pattern, soft, comfy fabric. Could have sized down.
I ordered this dress for my father-in-law's memorial party, an event he wanted to be more celebratory than sad. He knew every artist, dancer, and writer in town, so I needed something that struck a balance between arty and conservative. This dress fit the bill for me. Paired with a cardigan, (we had an unexpected snowstorm in May!) it was sexy enough to meet all of the ex-girlfriends from high school, but demure enough to hang with the grandmas. I loved the fabric; it was form-fitting, but not constricting. I did find I had to pull it down every so often, because it would ride up and bunch a bit at the waist. I think these problems could have been eliminated if I sized down to the XS, but overall it wasn't too annoying. I wish I had been able to get a photo, but that just didn't seem appropriate at a memorial!

Great dress, A little thick fabric
Wore it for a night out with family while on vacation. Loved the dress, got compliments. Was a little thick for warmer weather. Also snug - I think the Small would have been better for me. Did have to pull the dress down sometimes after walking, but that didn't bother me much.

Fit perfectly, loved the fabric, just the right amount of stretch. Would love to rent it again!
I wore this for my husband's birthday dinner and dancing with friends. He said this was his favorite RTR dress so far. I loved the feel of the fabric and it had just the right amount of stretch and coverage. What a fun and modern dress. Truly enjoyed.

Spring Wedding Winner!
This dress was a great choice for a festive but not formal spring evening wedding. The original forecast was overcast and cool but it turned to be 75 and sunny; thankfully neoprene material was not too warm. I fit into both the small and medium but chose the medium as it was more flattering on my hips. Other renters had mentioned the dress "rides up" while dancing or walking; I noticed forgoing shapewear seemed to make it move around less. Not sure if I would rent again, but it was a great dress for a very non-traditional wedding.

The dress does slink up every step you take, as other reviewers commented on. Thought would be no big deal, but got super annoying just walking around the house so decided against it.

Great dress!
Great dress for work; length is long enough (right above the knee). I ordered the medium thinking it would be more conservative for work, but I wish I would've ordered the small because there was a little too much fabric and the dress definitely could've been tighter. I will re-order this dress in a small though! Received tons of compliments on the pattern!

Very flattering fit and material, guaranteed to get you lots of compliments.
Usual size 6-8 or M-L and typically I end up wearing the larger size due to my hips, even with a weight gain I had to wear the medium as the large was too big around the bust/arm area. The pattern is very flattering especially around the waist area and photographs extremely well. If you plan on wearing Spanx the dress is long enough on a 5'6 height to be able to wear the thigh shorts and not be visible if you bend over, but the Spanx bodysuits/slips are not low enough at the back for the cut out. I also had to wear a multi-way bra as my regular bra's sat 1/2 inch higher than the cut out.

Love me some scuba!
This dress was perfectly fitted. Neoprene is a thicker material though so it may have a tendency to add a few pounds. I loved it, especially the script at the bottom. Tons of compliments.

The back upsize in my first choice wasn't available so they chose this dress for me.
My first choice fit perfectly so I ended up not wearing this dress. The color was beautiful the fit and fabric seemed pretty tight but since the fabric was so thick it seemed like it would be good if you had a little bit of a curvy body.

Fun stand out dress!
Wore to a summer wedding. The dress was fun and fit was great. Wore to a summer outdoor wedding and I wanted a print (outside of my norm) and this was perfect. Great colors and the scuba fabric held everything in at all the right places.

Cute dress
Wore this to work on an average day. The material is very sturdy and while it's tight, sucks everything in. The only thing is it does ride up a bit when you walk. But that didn't bother me much. I'd suggest sizing up if that would bother you or if you don't like something to be almost formfitting.

Beautiful colors, great material, funky style
Wore it to a family friend's daughter's sweet 16. I felt classy and sophisticated. It had great colors and was a funky fun dress. I love the longer length. Although it is true to size, it did ride up a little but other than that it was great.

Gorgeous, Unique, and Comfortable dress!!!
I wore this dress to a holiday party for work and it was a huge hit. So comfy I didn't want to send it back! This dress works effortlessly on many levels- breathable and bright enough for warm weather yet totally appropriate for a holiday event too. I am also a big fan of James Joyce and this dress is an excellent conversation piece. Highly recommended!

GORGEOUS Dress. Love the design and material.
This dress is definitely body-con. If you have a larger middle, like me, it is better to go a size up. I'll get a size large next time.

This dress made me look like I weighed 20 lbs less than I do. It. Was. Perfect.
Picked this up at the store and I wanted a medium, but they had none in this print. So I just squeezed myself into a small, and because of the thick fabric, it held every unsavory part of my stomach in place. If you don't like thick fabric, this brand is not for you, but as a master of the Spanx trade, I was totally into it. I got so many compliments on both the fit and fun, cool James Joyce print, it was a total hit!

Very comfortable and eye catching
Form fitting without being restricting like a bandage dress. Good length (I'm 5'2") and wedding appropriate. I was able to wear a regular bar. The Small and XSmall were almost the same fit, so I went with the XS since I'm on the shorter side. I loved the original pattern on this dress. Unfortunately, the picture was taken without a flash indoors, so its not the best to show off the dress pattern.

Makes a statement but still conservative!
This dress fits great and true to size. It was a bit long on me, since I am petite, but it worked for the event that I wore it to. It is made of a thick neoprene type fabric that feels snug but is comfortable. I liked how it tapered in at the waist and it was flattering. I wore it to a book launch and loved that there were "words" across the bottom of the dress...

TONS of compliments
This dress sold me on clover canyon forever. I felt stylish and unique and received many compliments - no one could believe how affordable this rental was. I probably could have warn the small but was rushing out of the door and didn't bother to try it on. I wore a small in another clover rental and found it didn't bunch up as much. Definitely rent this dress!
