I LOVED this dress. I was so comfortable and got compliments all day and night on it. The shape and details were flattering in all the right places. The detail was more sparkly and less like the leather (pleather) I imagined.

Perfect for a work holiday party.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I thought it was going to be more of a tailored cotton fabric, but it is actually more of a stretchy fabric. It was not tight, just a little clingy, but it is lined. The green stripes in the dress are sparkly green, which was appropriate for the holidays. I think it pictures very well and it was comfortable. Overall, I liked it. It fits true to size, I ordered one size smaller as well, but the smaller one, since I am tall, was too short and the proportions were off.

I originally ordered a different dress...when it didn't fit, I panicked. RTR was AMAZING. They shipped me this dress and I got in the next morning, just in time for the wedding. It is such a beautiful rich deep green and looks perfect with a nude heel. I'm a full C, and the amount of cleavage was just right. My favorite part of this dress was how great it made my butt look!

I wore this dress to a wedding in Maryland. The green was a great choice- not your basic black. I got a ton of compliments and I felt great in the dress. I was able to wear a regular bra underneath and no need for spanx because overall the fabric is very flattering. I would suggest for anyone. The added detail on the front of the dress to the back is a shiny lizard like coloring. It is not as shiny as the online picture shows but a wonderful detail non the less.

The dress was fairly conservative.

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I rented this dress for a medical graduation event. I wanted something somewhat conservative and green, because the school colors are green and gold. I think the dress was perfect for the event. I was surprised by the dress. It is actually a very stretch jersey material. I thought the shinny part was going to look pleathery, but it was more sparkly in person and scrunchy looking. The dress was very comfortable to wear. I expected it to be more form fitting, so I opted for the size 2, as you can see it was loser than I wanted, but that ended up being a good thing because I was running around and eating and drinking a lot. If you want something conservative and comfortable, this is a great choice.

Not quite what I pictured

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress isn't bad at all, just not special either. In person the color appears to be pretty much black (my least favorite color). Unless under really bright lighting the green doesn't show through. Also I was expecting the embossed detailing to be leather-like but its really just a shiny material. The cut is flattering and true to size, but for me there are just many dresses that are more special than this. One other thing to note - the neckline is lower cut than expected. I'm a 34G, so this may not be a problem for everyone that wears the dress. However I was a little uncomfortable with the view I was giving everyone at a co-worker's wedding.

The dress itself is beautiful, I loved how the sparkly detail continued in the back. It was classy and comfortable. However, the length was far too long on me, and made my legs look comically stumpy. I had to return it.

A Charming Dress

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is definitely meant for someone that is a little bit more busty... However, I did enjoy being able to wear my everyday bra and not have to worry about a strapless bra. I wish that the dress appeared more fancy. I felt as though it was missing that glamour feature.

The dress is a beautiful color (particularly when photographed in natural light). The shimmery details were a nice yet understated touch, as was the slight fishtail in back. I wore it to an elegant wedding and it was perfect. I have an hourglass figure and it accentuated my curves tastefully. The dress will wrinkle and need to be steamed if you are traveling with it. I wore it with nude pumps and gold accessories.

I normally wear an 8, but got the 10 as a backup. I did not recieve the 8 due to a problem with dress. The 10 was too big for my frame. I would say it runs true to size. The fabric laid nicely, especially the back heam.

This was my first rental and I was apprehensive about choosing a dress online but the reviews were so helpful. I usually wear a size 6 and that was the perfect fit in this dress (I am 5'7" and weigh around 140lbs). The fabric was so comfortable and flowing and the detail just made it that much more special. I got lots of compliments and would highly recommend it!!

I would suggest wearing Spanx underneath if you're a pear-shaped gal like me. It hit me just below the knee, which was perfect for me. I was a little loose in the shoulders, but I have narrow shoulders so most things are loose for me there. I got SO many compliments that night. This dress is legit magic and I would own it if I had $450 to spare.

I was dumbfounded when the 14 was too big. I didn't expect this and did t get a smaller size and really wish I did. This is a very easy to wear dress. Very flattering and forgiving. Because it was too big I spent the day pulling it up so the bra didn't show but this would have been rectified with the right size. I will rent again.

Beautiful dress, but not made for petites...

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The emerald green color of this dress is GORGEOUS & I loved the detail/design on the back. The fabric was comfortable and had some stretch to it. I usually wear a size 10 (petite if possible) & it fit true to size. Unfortunately, since I'm 5'4", the length of the shoulders was about an inch too long, so the V hung really low on me. I would have tried this dress on in the store & I would have bought it... but then had the sleeves altered. If only I was a bit taller it would have been perfect!

I wore this on a date night with my husband. I'm a little thicker around the middle than I used to be, but this dress was VERY flattering. The cut easily allows for Spanx and a good, supportive bra. The detail in the back is very flattering as well. This was very sexy, without being overt. I would definitely wear this dress again.

Beautiful color, classy!

Size worn: 4

Loved the dark green color and detailing through the bust! Fits beautifully, but my only slight critique is that it was a bit more conservative than it looks on the model (little bit longer on me, granted I'm 5'3", and wasn't nearly as fitted in the waist as I would like). However, this also may have been a result of wearing the size 4. RTR didn't have the 2 available which may have been a better fit for me and given the more fitted look I was hoping for.

I ordered this dress for my mom. When it arrived, it didn't fit. She didn't realize she had to return it within 24 hours and was a day late because of that - she called them to explain, and they were wonderful. They explained that the policy is if it doesn't fit, return it in 24 hours and you get your full refund...they gave her the full refund anyway because it was an honest mistake - Great customer service!

I got lots of compliments and felt great! Could have gone a size down.

Size worn: 14
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
So according to my measurements and the details about the dress including the material, I should have ordered a 14 so that's what I got. I must say, the material was more forgiving than I expected and the dress fit a bit too big. I'm an hourglass and was looking for something form fitting. I was concerned about the hips being too snug but it fit just fine. The top however, was a bit loose and I felt myself adjusting it the whole time so that my bra didn't show. In all i would have benefited from a size down. RTR didn't have a smaller back up size available at the time so this was my only option. Also liked the convenience of picking it up at the flatiron store just blocks from my job.

The dress was true to size and very comfortable. No special undergarments required but I do advise wearing Spanx. The material stretches but is also very fitted. I added a nice choker-style necklace and matching bracelet & earrings. Extremely appropriate for a holiday wedding or any event during Christmastime. The dark green is understated and very elegant. The back of the dress is exceptionally flattering too. I would highly recommend this dress!

Pleasantly surprised by the detailing

Overall fit: True to Size

The dress fit great, was the perfect length for my height. It was easy to wear a normal bra, no tape needed. The 4 fit, too... but I wanted to be a little more conservative. It moved really well and wasn't tight in any of the "usual" places (hips, butt & thighs). I was surprised by the detailing, I thought it was more of a pleather from the website pics... but its actually a low key, glittery fabric. The detailing ran all the way down the back and created a cute little "bustle" effect. I really loved wearing this dress and received many compliments!

Dress fit true to size and fabric was forgiving while still hugging in the right places. The event was a formal work event, where students would be present, so it was important for me to look professional in cocktail attire. The neckline stopped at the perfect stop, not showing too much cleavage. Also, loved the dark green color of this dress, very flattering color and a fun way to not wear the classic black dress.
