Absolutely loved this dress! I've never liked how this style and fit has looked on my body, but this dress proves all that wrong. It's a pretty heavy and thick material, and gives a really flattering shape. Would wear this again!!

LOVE this dress!! It was perfect for the bridal shower I attended.

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
This David Koma dress is A M A Z I N G! I rented it to wear to a bridal shower & everyone loved it! It has a kangaroo pouch like pocket & super cute pleats with black on them. There is NO stretch to this dress at all, I suggest going up one size. If you have bigger breast, unfortunately this dress more than likely won't work, as my breast were like pancakes in it & I'm a C cup. Other than that I love it & will definitely rent again! :)

Beautiful designer dress for a spring wedding.

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was beautiful-I felt like a million dollars in this dress! The best part about this dress was dancing in it- My husband could twirl me around and the dress would spin up. The only negatives are that it is made of heavy material and the wedding I wore it to was outside so I was a little hot. Also, make sure that you get the correct size- I am normally a 2 and I wore a 10 in this dress. Overall it was a great dress and I received compliments all night, even from the bride! It definitely felt designer.

I wore this dress to my last sorority formal and it really helped make the night! It was perfect!

It fits a bit small in the chest but it was super comfortable. It was somewhat heavy so I never had to worry about the wind blowing and my skirt going up or anything. Everyone loved it!

didnt wear it

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
The fit was unflattering on me, the 4 was the right size, but the dress did not look flattering at all on my body. The 'hips' are high on this dress, and the flare combined with the super high hip made my legs look incredibly short and stumpy because the flared skirt is somehow long for the rest of the dress. The top gets short to accommodate the super high hips, so that made me look super stocky on-top as well. The color of the dress didn't work at all against my skin color.

I loved the pop of black in this dress. The full skirt was also super fun. The only thing I was surprised by was how thick the fabric is. It was a bit hot for summertime, but would be perfect for cooler weather.

Flattering & Fun

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
This dress fit like a glove. I'm 5'9, the dress was short but not inappropriately short. The only downside was that the size 6 I rented had some weird shrinkage causing the hem to roll up at the back zipper, this made the back 2 inches shorter than the front. I LOVED the hidden pocket in front. I never would have found it but a previous reviewer pointed it out.

So many compliments in NYC!

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size

I got this dress for my birthday weekend in NYC and wore it to a show on Broadway. I had to wear a 0 when I normally wear a 2 so it was a tight squeeze but the dress was amazing. Incredible, thick material that was very flattering. Got so many compliments on the streets of New York, the show I went to and the rooftop afterward.

Elegant, Classy and a Pop of Edge!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I LOVED this dress! RTR contacted me a few days before my rental since my first dress option was damaged from the previous renter. They let me pick out a new dress (any price) and I stumbled across this beauty! I was attending a warm weather wedding and was slightly apprehensive given the weight of the dress. Everything about this dress was amazing, the fabric, the pleating, the color! I would highly recommend it!

True to size. Consider sizing up if a big dinner is involved! Material was a little heavy for August, but the event was indoors so didn't matter. Would LOVE to rent again!

Love the volume of the skirt. It runs slightly small. Size 8 felt tight so I ended up wearing 10.

I was a little skeptical about how the european sizes would fit but everything was true to size! The length of the dress was just right too! I am 5'7" without heels and I was able to wear 5" heels without the dress looking inappropriately short.

Size up!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
This was a stunning dress on - the colour and cut were very flattering, however it ran small on top and as such I was unable to zip it all the way up at the chest. Such a shame as it really is a gorgeous dress.

Great dress, flattering for the waistline

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The dress is definitely tight... hard to take a deep breath. But the way the black pattern comes in at the waist is really flattering and makes it look tiny. The RTR customer service girl told me the 6 would probably work given my measurements and she was right. The material is thick and the skirt is very playful. I loved the dress but truth be told, I wouldn't rent this again based solely on the price. The original dress I ordered was too damaged so they let me pick any dress to replace it. I chose this one because I knew I would never pay that price to rent it on my own. I actually ended up wearing my back up dress because I loved it even more. Bottom line, it's a beautiful dress so if the price tag doesn't matter to you, I would recommend it. But it is not worth the $200+ price tag for me as there are so many other gorgeous dresses on the site that are better priced.

Amazingggg dress! Need to buy!

Size worn: NONE
Rented for: Other
This dress was amazing! I rented this dress for my 4 year anniversary date. It fit so great and made me look like a million bucks! I received so many compliments from strangers I felt like a star! I love the color and fit. It was a little snug but still fit my size. Got an extra size up but didn't need to use it. Hugged curves and still was a cute A-line style. I love this dress so much that I really want to go out and buy it!

Semi formal dinner

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This is one of my fav dress from RTR. My sister kept talking about it and my husband liked it as well. I got so many compliments from strangers. The dress is very heavy but does not appear thick or feel uncomfortable at all. The skirt is so flowy but not too fluffy which make it so classy. There is no boning or under-skirt but somehow the dress holds the perfect shape. The black pattern design is so unique that it slims down the body and creates a unique look to the dress. I would love to rent it again.

The dress was a little tight on the collar which made it less comfortable. Fit everywhere else great! But does run a little small.

Perfect fit & flare dress

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
Runs small, but it fit just right for me. I normally can't find to much that fits snug on the waist. Perfect fit & flare. Unique dress that catches attention without being bold color. I love neutrals. Thick fabric, the ceremony was a little hot and the dress didn't help but worth it.

It looked light a pale pink online but is actually a beige color, but I ended up liking it anyways. Wore my backup size as it did run a little small; my backup ended up fitting perfectly. The material is very thick, definitely high quality and flattering. So much fun to wear and I got so many compliments. Loved it!

Wore this for a bachelorette party out east. Loved it but it's quite tight in the chest area. The material is full so ended up not wearing a bra and was fine.
