Different. Flattering.
The material almost feels like a wetsuit (for scuba diving). It's very soft and stretchy. I liked that this had a different pattern, and it was very comfortable.

Gorgeous colors!
Loved this dress for work. Great colors, really vibrant. Comfortable scuba material. I usually wear a 4 and wore a 6 so it was comfortable all day.

Perfect Fit! Loved the Material!!
This dress was great - it hugged everything in but smoothed it out at the same time, was comfortable for dancing & wasn't too hot for an outdoor wedding. It does ride up a bit, but the length was close to my knee so it wasn't an issue. I'm in love with neoprene dresses now. They hug you in all the right places and show off your curves without it being too much. The color is absolutely gorgeous as well. Would highly recommend for most body types - though I can say personally it works well for those athletic builds (I have broad shoulders & large quads and felt unbelievably comfortable all night).

Gorgeous dress!!!! Runs very small
I loved this dress. The colors are beautiful. It is a thick scuba material and I'm usually a 2 and sized up to a 6 which fit perfectly. Wish I could own it!!!

Fun bright summer dress
This was a backup dress I got after my first selection was not available to ship. I was weary at first but once I put it on I felt great! Such a fun, unique dress. The material was actually super comfy and didn't leave any sweat marks even after a long, hot outdoor ceremony. I am usually between a 4 and 6. I ordered a 6 because I was nervous about the fit. It fit me well. I probably could have also worn the 4. Since I don't have much junk in the trunk it bunched a little if I didn't pull it down. I'm thinking the 4 may have been tighter. Either way the 6 was still great. Very stretchy material. I received many compliments on the dress!

Interesting, attention getting dress that's comfortable to wear.
I really loved this dress! I received so many compliments. While the neoprene fabric was unusual it was very comfortable and really held everything in nicely. The colors were bold but not too in your face even for someone as afraid of color as myself.

I wore this for a wedding shower and got several compliments.
This dress fit true to size. I wore it with Spanx to suck my belly in, especially since the dress is very form fitting. The material feels great to the touch and does not wrinkle.

Perfect for a church event!
I really loved the material, it almost felt like a scuba suit. It kept me warm on a chilly Overcast day. The bottom flared out which I did not care for, other than that is was a great dress.

Pretty design! Odd material.
Dress design was really pretty, but the material was a bit weird for me - kinda like a wet suit? It was comfortable to wear, but form fitting and I spent a lot of time thinking about whether it would keep me warm in the water or not. Because the material was thicker, it was flattering despite being tight. I think the sizing was true, probably a bit on the smaller size because I'm between and I had no fit issues (this is the larger size for me).

So unique and pretty! Could wear for so many occasions.
Wore this dress to a wine pairing party. Fit: I rented the 4 with a back up size 6...both fit perfectly, but I figured I'd go with the 6 in case I needed some expansion room throughout the night, since drinking was involved. The thick neoprene was form fitting and held everything in nicely without making me look or feel like I was in a sausage casing. Ideal length for a slightly formal event, falling just above my knees. Material: Again, the neoprene made it feel like a wetsuit, but it was rather nice actually. The color of the dress was a vibrant orange and blue, which stood out beautifully in a sea of black and burgundy dresses. The pattern was just the right amount of busy. The dresses came in great condition, with no zipper issues, rips, snags or anything. This was a great dress and so easy and comfortable to wear. The bold colors and pattern made such a statement that accessories weren't really needed. I wore it with nude pumps and a very simple, thin gold bangle set. I received compliment after compliment with this dress. Makes me so sad to have to return it. I'd definitely rent this again for any number of occasions!

Snug and sleek
The material is awesome and sucks you right in. I had never worn that kind of material but it really did feel like a wet suit. Light enough to wear to an outdoor wedding. It did tend to rise up a bit so watch out for that. I'm short so the dress fell a couple inches above my knees and I would have potentially liked it more if the dress was shorter.

Fun colors, very form fitting
I ordered this to wear to a dressier dinner during a beach vacation. I didn't end up needing to wear it for that. I love the colors, print and feel of the scuba material and it was very comfortable and a decent length. I would have liked to keep it to wear to work, but I thought it hugged my butt a bit much to be appropriate. Maybe with a blazer it could have worked.

The material reminded me of scuba wear, but it looked amazing on. Super soft and comfortable! I received many compliments, as the print was different and just plain gorgeous. Would definitely re-rent for the right occasion.

Perfect for a summer wedding!
This dress was perfect for a summer wedding. The neoprene fabric forms to all of your curves and sucks you in but is also delightfully stretchy and easy to move in. I wore it with Spanx for a smoother look and loved the way it hugged my body. Ladies, be prepared to show off your curves! At only 5 feet tall, the dress was a touch long for me, but given the form-fitting nature of the dress it did not need to be short to be hot! (fun fact--the dress my friend is wearing was a RTR too and looked incredible!).

Glove fitting and amazing colors
Fun, sexy, comfortable dress which fits like a glove and will make you stand out in the crowd. Scuba material but has no sleeves so you can still keep cool. Amazing color/design scheme which is too memorable and makes for a perfect rental.

I loved the color of this dress!
As many others have stated, this is a scuba material which I didn't love but is very flattering! The size zero ran big on me so I would say it runs big for its size.

Perfect Dress for a Summer Wedding
I've been renting from RTR for a few years now and this is definitely the best dress I have rented yet! Initially I was a bit nervous about the material for a summer wedding after reading other reviews but it ended up working out in my favor! The wedding and cocktail hour were both outside and it was extremely hot. With the material being as thick as it is, not one ounce of sweat shown through. The dress is very snug but the material is incredibly comfortable (and you can wear a normal bra!). I skipped wearing a necklace due to the "busy pattern" and black V accent around the neckline but wore a pair of dangling gold earrings. I also went with a pair of black heels. I would love to wear this dress again!

Great quality! no spanx needed!
I rented this dress for my birthday brunch & it was absolutely perfect! Such beautiful vibrant colors and the fabric is so comfortable considering it's fitted. It hides all little body imperfections and smoothes every dimple or curve you may be self-consious about. This was 3 months ago so at the time I was about 155lbs and 5'6" with a 34DD/ 36D bust and I ordered both the size 8 and the size 10 and the 8 fit perfect! You can't go wrong with this dress no matter what size you are.

Perfect form fitting spring dress with a pop of color!
I ordered this dress for a spring wedding at a warehouse like venue in the city. I loved the fact that it was neoprene type material--thick enough material to smooth you out but not hot at all. The colors were fabulous and vibrant--orange and violet. This runs true to size! I was sad to return it!

Very flattering dress, but too form fitting for me
I got this dress after my first choice was unavailable. It is impressively flattering! Pretty colors and amazingly comfortable. Definitely would travel well. And it could easily be dressed up or down. But in the end, I chickened out and didn't wear it for my event. It was just too form fitting for me. My husband and mom were disappointed. :) Maybe for another occasion! But I also didn't love the smell -- it really smells like you are wearing a bathing suit! I got both the 0 and 2, and the fit was extremely similar. Maybe a little more room in the 2, and possibly bigger arm holes, but either would have worked for me.

Easter dress
This dress runs a little small but it's made out of neoprene so it should be quite fitted. Sizing one size up should be fine. I wore this for Easter with a blazer and received tons of compliments.

Super Small Dress Even with Ordering One Size Larger
This dress is cute and has thick fabric, but it runs very small. I generally wear a 4 instead of 2 because I prefer my dresses a bit looser for work. I order a 6 in this dress so it would fit loosely, but it was skin tight. Too tight for work, but okay for date night.

It was so easy to order and shipped fast.
The dress quality is amazing ! I'm very skeptical about dresses because I'm curvy and it's hard to find dresses that compliment me the right way but this fabric is amazing ! Hugs the tummy and hips all in the right way ! I recommend this dresses on a date !

So comfortable!
This fit like a neoprene glove. It really was amazing, and I got plenty of compliments. My only complaint is that it wasn't very forgiving in hugging the not-so-great areas, but well... Spanx make up for lots of that. Overall, I loved it and was very comfortable all evening. It runs true to size, but has some stretch so it easily accommodates different body types. it did cut in just a tad at the front of the armpit, so I found myself adjusting that from time to time, but that was more from consciousness of how it looked, because it wasn't uncomfortable at all. Great dress overall!
