I loved this dress! It was my first time using RTR, and I was very pleased with the results. I received a lot of compliments on the dress as well. It fits true to size, and I found that I was able to fit into a size 6 and 8 with equal comfort. I am 5'3", so the dress was a bit longer than I was expecting (went a little over the knee).

The dress was very flattering and I received many complements. I am 5'2 & 1/2 inches tall and weigh around 110 lbs. Usually dresses this length are too long for me but this nicely hit above my knees.

This was the only sparkly dress among lots of black, fun!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This was my first experience with RTR. I rented this for a black tie fundraiser. I ordered a size 4 and 2 for the back up based on recommendations shown. My only disappointment was that the 4 fit great, but the back-center seam had two holes in it- one in the back and one in the middle of the hiney. I couldn't fix that with tape, so luckily the 2 fit (though tighter) well enough to wear. I got tons of compliments and it was comfortable and flattering.

This is a perfect dress for a cocktail style wedding. I have 2 kids, 13 months and 4 years, and I needed a dress that I would be comfortable carrying kids around in yet stylish. This is dress is perfect! I was planning on wearing silver colored jewelry since this dress looked more silver on line. But, I ended up wearing gold jewelry instead. I think the dress would have gone great with either gold or silver jewelry, so its a very versatile dress! Also, I'm not at my pre-pregnancy weight yet so this was a comfortable dress to be in and not feel insecure! (Main reason I rented a dress instead of buying one!)

I Rocked it!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This was my first experience with RTR & have to say won't be the last. It's so great getting to wear a designer dress worth several hundred dollars retail & only paying a fraction of the cost. The dress definitely looks more silver online & pictures but it shows a lot more gold to the naked eye. So either silver or gold accessories & shoes would work with it. I loved this David Meister dress. So elegant, clean lines & comfortable to wear. The size 2 fit me very well that I didn't even bother trying on the 4. Of course there was a little more room in the chest area , but it's the norm for me with a 34A bust size . Nothing that a padded bra couldn't help! The ruching on the side is attractive as well as very forgiving if there are any untoned areas. It felt comfortable to wear all night as it was lightweight and nicely lined. This dress rocks as I had so many compliments & people asking me where I got my dress. RTR is so easy to use, I highly recommend for anyone who hasn't tried it.

This dress was so wonderful and was perfect for the fall wedding I wore it to. HOWEVER, it did come with a strain :( so I was a bit self-conscious in pictures. Other than that, it was such a comfy, awesome dress.

Perfect dress for a second reception!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
We got married in Colorado, but a lot of my family couldn't make it for the wedding. My mom hosted a second reception, and I ordered this dress to wear for the party. First, the dress is really comfortable. As you can see from my action, dancing shot, it moves really well. I didn't want to take it off! The length was just slightly above the knee, which I like. I have a small chest and was wearing the wrong bra - cups, no back. All my dancing made them move, so I would highly recommend a strapless bra instead (I had changed out of my wedding dress earlier and forgot to bring the strapless). My waist is small and my hips are wider,, so the dress bunched slightly at my waist where it is cinched. It was dark and very unnoticeable. I received a lot of compliments and would rent this same dress again.

This dress is gorgeous I got lots of compliments, it is true to size and very light. It was very comfortable to dance in as well. I was expecting it to be a shade darker gold, but it worked very well with Red lipstick, clutch and RTR Kenneth Jay Lane Ruby Red Drops Gold plated clip-on earrings. Absolutely Love it.

SO MANY COMPLIMENTS!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was perfect. My only wish is that I had lost a few pounds before wearing it. It's very form shaping and so any chub is definitely noticeable. I was wearing SPANX underneath, but my body still seemed a little boxy. But other than that, the dress is beautiful. I got compliments literally all night long!

Sparkle in a sea of Black when you wear this Shining Star

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I rented this dress because the dress I wanted became unavailable at the last minute. I was very happ with the dress. Very light fabric and it is very stretchy. The 8 and the 6 both fit almost the same (which is why I say it runs large: no way I can actually wear a 6), so I decided to wear the 8 because the ruching on the side hit my waist at the perfect spot (the 6 was a bit higher on me). You'll love wearing this dress. Nothing but complements all night.

I ordered this for New Years in Miami and ended up wearing my back up.

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Vacation
The dress would be better suited to wear to a wedding than a Miami New Years Eve bash in a club. Has a conservative look that would work better for a conservative and fancy event. The fit was spot on, but I didn't find it slimming. The shiny material seemed to have the opposite effect.

Shimmery gold perfect party dress

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size

The fabric is light and clingy... but also very comfortable. It's not exactly gold or exactly silver- kind of a white gold. I wore silver strappy stilettos and painted my toes gold and wore Oscar de la renta gold and emerald earrings from rtr. The dress was a big hit with my husband and my friends!!!

The dress was beautiful, shimmery and a very flattering cut - I received compliments all night. The color is a bit difficult to accessorize - it is in between gold and silver. I went with obviously gold accessories for a mixed metallics look.

This dress was sent as a replacement since the one I ordered wasn't available in a back-up size. It looked like the material would be used for a junior high homecoming dress. I didn't feel comfortable wearing it to a formal event.

Perfect

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I loved this dress even though it was much more metallic than I expected. I wore a size 4 but probably could have worn the 6 due to it being a little too close and tight around the armpit area. I paired this dress with a RTR gold Kate Spade bag, gold earrings, and gold strappy heels. This dress would have been very comfortable if it weren't for a piece of the plastic reinforcement near the zipper that had broken through the fabric and had been stabbing into my side. Overall, the dress worked for the occasion but was not 100% perfect.

I wore this for a grad school formal. I liked the way the ruching hides the midsection, though I would still recommend shapewear to hide lumps and bumps. It was nice and sparkly but I wish it were just a tad shorter.

This little gold number is stretchy, but that does not make it cheap looking at all. The material still looks very nice and formal. I wore the smaller size 4 instead of the 6. I didn't even try on the 6. I still wore shape wear to keep it all smooth. I wore with nude strappy sandals and Nicole miller drop earrings I rented. I would recommend this dress for sure.

I LOVED this dress! It was so comfortable and fit perfectly. The material is very stretchy so I could have gotten away with a 2 or a 4, depending upon how snug I wanted it to fit. I have a difficult time finding dresses that fit me in the bust and waist, but the stretchy fabric flattered both areas. Beautiful champagne color was perfect for the NYE wedding.

Felt like an Oscars statue all night!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this for my wedding's after party. I got lots of compliments in this dress and felt like a million bucks! It's got sparkle and a flattering fit and you WILL get noticed. Demands red lipstick, in my opinion. I wore the 4, but could have worn the 2 as well. I'm 32D-25"-36" and the size 2 was only too tight under my arms, so if you are less busty, you may be able to wear the smaller of your two sizes. My only complaint about the dress is that it was a slightly warmer gold tone than what the picture shows, but I still loved it. I did have an issue with shipping as the dress arrived a day later than it was supposed to, so I will probably continue to give myself more cushion time than I need in the future...

The dress was shimmery already so I didn't need a lot of accessories. I ordered the 4 and the 6 and the 4 fit perfectly and was appropriately fitted. The 6 was a little loose, a little too much fabric. This was my first rental and I am now a big fan of RTR!

The dress was great for my wedding reception.

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress as a second dress to wear on my wedding day during the reception. The dress was perfect for our extremely hot summers and cooling off between dancing and socializing. I did not have time to compare sizes between the 2 and 4, but the 2 seemed to fit very well. I think the 4 might be looser in the bust area. The dress does cling to the body, so be confident with your body type if you wear it.

Wore this to a wedding on our first wedding anniversary. I wanted something I could wear with the shoes I'd worn in our wedding. This was perfect! The dress definitely shows some signs of wear...piping coming out on the side. But if you're not looking you wouldn't notice it. I got lots of compliments on this. It was very comfortable and had lots of room to dance and eat tons without it showing.

Emergency dress, FTW!

So I was a bit panicked when my chosen NYE dress fit just a bit too snug. The RTR team was wonderful in suggesting this alternative, which I felt like was undersold on the website and in some of the reviews versus my experience. I found this dress just perfect. The one shoulder style made it stay in place all night long without my ever having to think of adjusting anything. It works well with a simple strapless bra. The material isn't super thick, but the texture to it and the finish made it dressy enough for NYE. I liked the longer length on it, as it was quite cold in NYC this evening. Highly recommend this one.

RTR made it very easy to find a fantastic dress.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I rented this dress for New Year's Eve because the girls in our group of couples decided we should all wear sparkle dresses. It was a bit of a last minute decision and I didn't want to buy yet another dress. The dress was true-to-size, arrived on time in very sturdy packaging, and was in great condition. I received many compliments on the dress, and it was easy to dance in. I wore it with black velvet pumps, only because it was freezing outside which rendered pantyhose as a necessity, and the pantyhose with the peep-toe on my sparkle pumps wasn't a good look. It was very tasteful, an appropriate cocktail length, and covered my chest (important for the venue). Easy to wear a strapless bra with as well. Very easy rental process, and I would absolutely "RTR" again!

Couldn't wear

Size worn: NONE
Rented for: Formal Affair
Unfortunately I wasn't able to wear this dress because the 2 was too small in the arms and baggy all around. The 4 consisted of too much material. The dress felt cheap, and the primary reason for not wearing it was that although I could have worn the 2, it had stains right on the neckline as though the precious renter spilled a red sauce and scrubbed it out causing the shimmer in those spots to disappear. Not a good fit.
