I wore this dress to a family wedding and received so many compliments!
This dress was beautiful and I received so many compliments! The colors are gorgeous and photograph really well! You have to be mindful but bending over because it is a little on the short side. I would absolutely rent again!

So pretty.. lots of compliments!!
It was very cute, but the material DID NOT STRETCH at all. I'm normally a 6 or 8 but I probably could've gone with a 10 in this dress! Nevertheless, it was cute and very classy. Love the pockets!

I felt so pretty!
I just felt so pretty in this dress. It is definitely short but I wore some spandex shorts under it just in case. Pattern is so fun and fit was so flattering! Loved it! Also, RTR customer service hit it out of the park again. After not liking the alternate dress they had sent me, they overnighted me this dress and had it delivered in time for my event. SAVED THE DAY and my night! Such an amazing company I can't thank you enough!!!!

Absolutely loved this dress! I received so many compliments!
I think that this dress is true to size. I loved this dress and everything about it. I normally range from a size 2-6 in dresses, so I decided to rent the size 4, and got the backup 6 dress. The size 4 fit perfectly, and I didn't even bother trying on the size 6. The only complaint that I have are the straps. When I first tried the dress on, the sleeves sort of slid off, but if you zip up the dress all the way and have a decent size bust, the dress should fit fine. Overall, I absolutely loved this dress. I loved the color, material, and the pockets!

It was a little tight in the waist and the perfect length. The pockets were a huge plus!

Eye Catching and Very Flattering
TLDR: fit great even for a busty person and true to size. I felt like a million bucks. *****Experience***** This was my first experience with RTR and it was such a hit. $42 to wear a $440 for a night? How could you say no. I had such a fantastic time in this dress and felt so high class. The dress is a gorgeous color and it shows much better in person. It's also a very flattering cut because of the pooled skirt. I got so many compliments, and I definitely stood out from the crowd. *****Fit**** This dress seemed to fit true to size, but in my experience I've had some weird fittings in different dress sizes. I'm a between a 34E(DD)-34F(DDD) and 5'7''and typically a size 8. I rented an 8 and a 10 as per a RTR stylists suggestion and ended up going with the 10 because the 8 was too tight in my rib age and chest. I was worried it would be too short but in my opinion it was totally fine. I used fashion tape (first time user) to try and keep everything in, but it ended up twisting up and rolling off in the end. I think because I put it on wrong. Either way I was generally able to stuff everything in pretty well because the dress fits fairly snug.

Pre wedding event for an Indian wedding. I needed something colorful.
The dress was really fun. The colors are a true deep jewel and the material is nice and sturdy. I enjoyed the dress and would recommended it.

The colors on this dress are so vibrant! Pictures don't do it justice. Tons of compliments!
The dress is a little short and I had to adjust the straps a bit all night (they were a tad too loose). Probably could have sized down. But the color and fabric are absolutely beautiful. Wore to a fall wedding and it was the perfect dress to dance in. Would rent again!

Excellent dress - loved it!
Really loved this dress. I would agree that is a bit short but since it flairs out I found it to still be comfortable and flattering. Loved the laced deep-v neck line.

Dress fit well, perfect length for 5'2" frame. A bit tight on the bust for small C cup or larger, can wear a normal bra. Would highly recommend!

Beautiful dress but ...
I rented this dress for a wedding. After reading everyone's reviews I thought this would be perfect for me. When I got the dress the 10 wouldn't even zip up and the 12 was super snug and very short. I had to return it. Runs small so make sure you go up a size or two.

Beautiful dress!!
I picked this dress a few months before the wedding....and before I found out I would be 14 weeks pregnant, so I was really nervous that the dress wouldn't fit with my newly acquired bump. Cynthia Rowley tends to run small on me anyways, but I was still able to wear the backup size 8. The dress itself is GORGEOUS; I got compliments from random strangers all night. The material is beautiful and the style is fun and very forgicing. I am quite short so I liked the length, however I did have to taken extra care to not bend over or else I would've definitely flashed the crowd. If you have a larger bust or don't want to be overly revealing, this dress may not be for you, my husband definitely commented on my "assets" up top and I would've been uncomfortable if I was any larger in the bust. My only beef with the dress was the horrible zipper; it literally took 2 people plus me to get it to work. Overall though, a very fun rental and I would recommend it!

Beautiful dress but sadly didn't fit (bust runs small)
This dress was stunning but there was no hope of getting the zipper closed around my busy. I could not wear even a size up (normally wear a size 4, ordered sizes 4 and 6). I would definitely try again.

Fantastic Dress!
This dress is awesome! So many compliments and my date was speechless. There was a small tear in the princess seam in the front, but it wasn't noticeable with the texture of the dress. The dress was also definitely darker than pictured, but still super gorgeous and flirty. Rent this dress!

beautiful colors, thick fabric, no bra required
I wore this to a May wedding in a museum. The fabric was so beautiful and colorful. I wore the 6 and it fit perfectly and I didn't even have to wear a bra. The 8 was too loose, both were the same length. This dress is short so wear full coverage undies and don't bend over too far. I received so many compliments on the dress and will be renting from this site again.

It was my 30th birthday and I wanted to look pretty, yet sexy.
The seam at the waist is a little tight, but I survived. The straps are a little big (long), but they didn't fall off my shoulder or anything. The skirt part was very poofy, which is not what I was expecting based on the pictures people have posted. But it does jump away from you in the front and back. Not a bad thing, just not the most flattering look for my frame. Very low cut, but that's why I borrowed it!

Great for petites!
This is my favorite rental so far! I absolutely loved this dress ! It was so fun and pretty and girly! The fit and flare skirt made dancing lots of fun and was figure flattering. I would recommend this dress for petites as it was SHORT. I'm only 5'3" and had to watch it on the dance floor! Some reviews said this ran large but I thought it was true to size. If you have a larger rib cage area, I would recommend sizing UP as there is no stretch. And the fabric is gorgeous! Petite girls - rent this dress!

Fun, different dress, great for winter wedding!
I really liked how different this dress was. It's a heavier weight, so great for a fall or winter wedding. I love that it comes with pockets and was comfortable. The only negatives for me was that the straps were too big on me and because the dress flares out a fair amount, I recommend being careful on the dance floor to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions!

Beautiful colors!
I loved this dress for the holiday party I attended. It was bright and colorful, a great contrast to the black dresses all around. The only downside was it was extremely low cut and I had trouble wearing a normal bra with it. Overall, I was very happy with it!

I wore this dress to an outdoor evening birthday party.
This dress fit like a glove! The fabric is gorgeous, and it has pockets! Just tuck in your ID, card, and phone, hand your keys to the valet, and you're off to the races! I found the hemline to be quite short, but because of the flattering flare of the skirt, the overall look is balanced. On a warm evening, the plunging neckline would look great with a statement necklace (the party I attended was outdoors, so I draped a black faux fur capelet around my shoulders). P.S. Did I mention it has pockets? ;)

First night out post baby! Got tons of compliments!
This dress was a hit. I had actually rented something else that didn't fit and had no backup size so I picked this as a replacement. Customer service was so helpful. Also, I'm breastfeeding, so I was concerned with the fit in the bust, but it was great. Nice and tight around the waist, but enough room for my temporarily larger bust. I was getting compliments from strangers all night!

Perfect cut, comfortable and sexy!
I rented this dress for my company's holiday party. The cut of this dress is perfection for someone with an athletic build. The waist hit at just the right spot to give the illusion of a tiny middle while being comfortable for all night dancing. Straps were comfortable and stayed in place all night...PLUS, THERE'S POCKETS!!!! the color is much richer in person. Beautiful jewel tones. I got plenty of compliments on this dress, paired with a tall chunky black heel. I would definitely rent this again...if there was a way to purchase it from RTR i would have!

Such a fun dress!
I loved this dress! I would recommend. It has pockets and is so fun. The fabric is gorgeous. I received compliments all night. I will say, the front is fairly low and the skirt is short. Since I am short and small chested it worked out great for me.

This dress is soooooo cute!!!
This dress was one of my favorite rentals from rtr! I rented the 2 and no back up size, and unfortunately it was a little tight. I called rtr and they overnighted me a size 4! The fit runs small in my opinion. It's short, but fit me great, I'm petite. You taller ladies may wanna be careful. The shirt is full and the cut is perfect for a medium bust. I loved this dress and would love to own it!

This dress was so comfortable and fun to wear. It is definitely on the shorter side and shows a lot of leg. The material is a little thicker but not at all heavy or hot. I love the lace edges and the pattern in general. Got plenty of compliments!

Thankfully, both the 0 and 2 fit. The 0 I received had the whole back hem falling out, which I didn't realize until I was getting dressed to leave for the event. I quickly tried the 2 on and it was perfect, if not a little better fit than the 0. Overall I was very happy with this dress!

Beautiful dress!
I just had a baby so it was difficult to find a dress to fit my postpartum body. This dress is beautiful and made me feel not so frumpy for the first time in a while. Love that it has pockets! I ordered an 8 and 12 and ended up wearing the 12 as the 8 was a bit tight in the rib area. I really needed a 10 but it was unavailable. The 12 was big but nothing I couldn't work with. It helps that my bust is extra huge right now. Would rent again when I am back to my normal size! Comfortable, easy to dance in.

Pretty for an early fall wedding.
This was a very solid rental! The skirt was fuller and flared out a little more than I was anticipating on my petite frame, but overall it's a flattering silhouette and the colors are very vibrant and different (plus, pockets! Always a win). The jacquard fabric is great for an all-day event because it holds its shape and doesn't wrinkle. I am normally between a 2 and a 4 and the 4 fit perfectly--got just a little bit snug as the night went on (post-dinner and dessert), so I would recommend sizing up for your backup size just in case. I would not have squeezed into the 2!

Fun dress to wear!
The dress is beautiful, however it runs SMALL. I'm normally a 2, and barely fit in the 4. I would definitely suggest sizing up on this. Perfect length for my height. I loved the style & colors of the dress (the material reminds me of a metallic quilt). I got several compliments :) FYI my friend's dress from my picture is also RTR, and she loved hers too!

Short, fun & flirty!
I never order from RTR unless I read the reviews, but I'm glad I did with this one. Girls of my height and size were urging customers to size up. I normally wear a 2 or 4, and got the 6. It fit perfectly, so this dress does run small. It was not short on me, probably due to my height, so that was not an issue. This dress typically isn't the style I'd go for, but something was drawing me to it, and I'm happy I did. I paired the dress with a simple earring to compliment the colors of the dress and lace up grey/periwinkle heels. AND.. it has pockets!!

So cute! So short!
I usually wear a 6, but in this dress the 8 fit me great on top!! I loved this dress but it is SHORT. So short and with a flared out shirt... I couldn't wear it as my booty would have been showing all night long!
