A vibrant and unique party dress!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This is a really cute and fun dress - though not what I was expecting! The dress is basically like a wetsuit--I didn't read the details closely and missed that it was neoprene! Along with the material, the zipper and stitching really are reminiscent of putting on a scuba wetsuit. Although that description might seem like a poor choice for a wedding rehearsal dinner, I was very happy with it. As one might imagine, the neoprene fits snugly. I usually wear a size 0 or 2, but went with the size 4 on this one. The smaller size fit okay, but it was a bit too "glove-like," so I would definitely recommend ordering the backup a size up. One added bonus is that it doesn't wrinkle at all, so if you need to pack it in a suitcase, you can be confident that it will be ready to go when you unpack, even if your suitcase takes a beating

Such a unique dress!

Overall fit: True to Size

This dress is great! It's made out of a neoprene, wetsuit material which is thick and comfortable. It hugs in all the right places and was not even too short on me, which is unusual. I received so many compliments and would definitely rent it again!

What a fun, unique dress choice for a girls night out!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
This is European sizing so the 6 fit like a 2/4. The neoprene wore really nicely and I didn't feel like I needed Spanx because of the thicker fabric. Not sure this would be a good choice for warmer weather. Nice length. Not too short. I wore with the House of Harlow gold cuff and chandelier earrings.

Fun party dress

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
This was a really pretty fun dress. The fit is very snug. I went up a size to be comfortable. If you are tall like me I would highly recommend going up 1-2 sizes. But I was comfortable and loved the dress. Could be dressy or casual depending on how you style it. Racer back bra worked perfectly.

Nice spring dress!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
I generally don't opt for a print (especially a floral this large), but the rental option made it a good time to try something new! The neoprene fabric felt a bit like a wetsuit...it wasn't too constricting though. This shift was very stretchy in case you have some moving/dancing on the agenda! I wore this to a John Legend concert at an auditorium, although it would also work nicely for a brunch or dinner out during spring. While the color combo was nice, it wasn't my favorite rental ever

I am a curvy girl so it wasn't as loose fitting on me as it was on the model. It fit me like a glove, and i loved it.

scuba-esque cocktail dress with bold pattern, rich colors

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress to a May wedding. I have fair skin and dark hair, so I avoid pastels in my wardrobe and loved that this dress had rich, deep purple and deep coral. The thick, flexible scuba-like material made it more formal and chic than it might have been with thinner material. It skims the body but isn't shrink wrap tight. I really liked it and didn't need to add much jewelry or other styling. A few things you may not be able to tell from the descriptions and/or pictures: The design on the dress is printed and flat, so nothing protrudes. There is also a narrow, black, V-shaped seam along the chest, and another black seam along the hem, almost like the seam you would see on an inside-out garment. Also, the 2 was ironically much tighter than the 0. I saw that another reviewer had the same issue.

Bright, different, neoprene!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Loved the print and colors of the dress. Material is a stretchy neoprene, which is comfy, but it definitely hugs your body and so would say if you're not comfortable with that i wouldn't recommend it. Because of the material, also tends to ride up a bit so did have to keep tugging it back down. Spanx recommended!

Perfect dress for a summer wedding

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this for a summer wedding and I loved it! The material is almost scuba like but it turned out to fit perfectly. It's not restricting at all and very easy to move around in. The colors are bold and I got compliments all night! This dress is true to size and since I am about 5'10 the length was perfect. Would definitely recommend and rent again!

Favorite Dress EVER

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is neoprene, but it feels amazing on, like a glove. It was a warm day, but the material reacted quite well to it. The color and pattern is BEAUTIFUL and bold. I felt so great in this dress and recommend it! It doesn't suck you in as much as I thought though, so food babies etc. aren't too hidden.

Tight fit, beautiful color, fun dancing fabric

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The dress fits very snug. I love the length of it, just above my knee I'm 5-5ish. The color was amazing it shimmered in the day light, perfect for the sunset wedding I was at. Dress it up with black heels that match the stitching on the bottom and the neckline and red lipstick and its unforgettable. I'm curvy and still liked how it hugged my curves it showed me off without clinging to the bad parts. Cynthia Rowley's designs are always impressive and this didn't disappoint as my first RTR purchase.

Just too small...

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
The dress was stunning, but even after ordering BOTH my size and the size up, the dress was just too small. The neoprene bunched terribly around my hips, though the bust fit fine. I would have been able to wear it for a more casual occasion in a different venue, but the tightness made it very inappropriate for a formal wedding.

My first rental with RTR and this dress was phenomenal! A modern, playful twist on a cocktail dress.

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size

Flawless fit, incredibly comfortable, stunning pattern, vivid colors. Definitely made to stand out in a crowd. I'm not normally a print person, and wasn't impressed with this dress on the hangar, but it came to life when I tried it on! The neoprene fabric was form fitting yet flexible and very soft. Fun, flirty, unexpected twist for a cocktail or party dress. Received tons of compliments.

Wetsuit material! totally weird but also warm and comfortable. awesome dress overall

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The wet suit material took me off guard at first but it was really warm and comfortable. Got tons of compliments. Very easy to dance in. Rode up a smidge when walking but nothing crazy. Fit like a glove. Great for a wedding you have to travel to as it doesn't wrinkly. There is a sewn 'V' on the chest that I didn't notice on the initial pictures but it almost takes the place of a necklace. Hair up or down works really well.

Like many others have said, the material is not usual, I felt like I could have gone surfing after the wedding - without changing! But, it fit amazing and I absolutely loved it. Perfect for an outdoor wedding. I didn't notice much difference between the 6 and the 8.

I rented a 0 and a 2 and for some reason the 2 was smaller than the 0. The dress is definitely tight. I'm only 5'2" so it was a little long. I wore with black tights and heels. I felt confident and sexy.

Fantastic dress!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
There seem to be mixed reviews on this dress - if you don't like the fitted neoprene type, don't get it. But if you do like it, similar to the Herve Leger dresses, it hugs you and supports beautifully, is incredibly confortable, its like a huge spanx so you need nothing under it. And it's gorgeous and different. I loved it and got tons of compliments. I did find that it rode up a little, but it was easy to subtlely ease it back down - and we were dancing a lot so it was understandable. The colors are terrific too - photos don't do it justice. A real winner.

The color was a little bit different than the photos online. I rented this after the original dress I had picked out was damaged beyond repair. The dress was made of a neoprene material so it fit like a glove, the material was thick but very comfortable. Was definitely very body hugging.

Curve-hugging, bright and eye catching!

Size worn: 4
Rented for: Party
As previously reviewed, this dress fits like a wetsuit! The material clings to your body and hugs curves almost like thicker spanx. Because of the tight fit, you don't need much underneath. I usually wear a size 4, and I ordered a 4 reluctantly, but the dress I received was true to size. This dress worked great for my husband's 30th birthday surprise party!

Loved this dress! Comfortable and sexy without feeling inappropriate given the print and high neckline (although I did wear a blazer over it). I usually wear a 4-6 in dresses and ended up wearing the 6 because it was a bit longer, but I'd have worn the slightly tighter and shorter 4 if I'd been going to a bachelorette party rather than a work event.

This dress is made of scuba type material with a lot of stretch. It fits close to the skin (thank you Spanx!), but the fabric has enough body to keep your secrets safe. It is not quite as dark or bold colored as pictured, but it still had a nice sizzle of color. Dressed it up with bright cobalt blue accessories and high heels. Spectacular! Felt like a million bucks!

I wore this to an October wedding with a navy pashmina & it felt very comfortable and weather/event appropriate. This was another great experience with RTR. I'm normally one for a solid color dress, but it was fun to go with this unique pattern. I will say it is form fitting, but not in a negative way. When other renters say it fits like a wetsuit, they are not lying. Wishing I could have kept this dress!

Definitely scuba material! I scuba dive and my wetsuits are of the same material. It is a gorgeous dress and it got a lot of compliments. Unless you have a perfectly flat stomach, you may want to wear Spanx. I wore a slip type that goes under the chest and it was perfect. I have a very large bust and didn't find it too tight up there, nor did I find it difficult to put on.
