I sent this dress back without wearing it
This dress is well-made, comfortable, true to size and a beautiful color of red. The lace is beautiful. I love this dress on the hanger. It just is not the right dress for me. I didn't end up wearing it because it was too short for me to be comfortable. I am not 21 anymore LOL. I also could work out a little bit. Ha

Perfect for my rooftop birthday party!
I LOVED this dress and wish it was a permanent piece in my closet. Super soft, comfortable, and easy to move around in. Just be careful bending over. :) It worked well with my curves, and I got tons of compliments. I'll probably end up renting every color at some point...

Perfect Valentine's Day Dress!
I wore this out to dinner in NYC on Valentine's Day. I usually wear a size 8, but was not available. Good thing I ended up renting the size 10 since it was a little snug in the middle of the back. This was a little stretchy in the midsection so I had room to breathe, very comfortable. Would recommend this dress to anyone.

Always a 6, but not in this.
I ordered a 6 and an 8. Neither worked and here's why: I'm actually a 32-DD. (no drop down for that size available) and this dress crushed my boobs - in both the 6 and the back-up 8. It was also too short. Perhaps, my chest size contributed to the length. The wedding I was attending had a traditional church ceremony and a reception to follow. No way would this have been comfortable to wear in a church setting even if my chest fit into it. Otherwise, it fit. The arms, the sizing... just bust + length were a serious no-go.

This gorgeous dress is definitely one I didn't want to ship back!
I wore this DVF dress my sororities philanthropy event. I rented a size 2 and 4, but ended up wearing the 2. The fabric is stretchy enough so i might've been able to wear a 0, but the 2 was perfect! I received many compliments and highly recommend for anyone who wants to stand out for the night :)

Perfect timing on delivery and arriving in great condition!!
I wore this dress for an outdoor Fall wedding. The dress fit perfectly. I received it in great condition and felt very comfortable in it. The lace was not irritating. I wore a red suede shoe with it and it worked out nicely. I received a lot of compliments!! You can definitely dance it in too which is always a plus (:I was skeptical at first of this site, but after my first experience I am already using it again at the end of this month!

Beautiful Dress for a Wedding!
I ordered a six and an eight. I ended up going with the eight because I am tall and it was longer than the six. I loved this dress and would highly recomend it. The arms were not tight and the material is amazing. Like I said if you are tall, if you are tall and worried about the lenght, go one size up!

Beautiful color and comfy
The fit was comfy but the cut was a little short. If you have curves then it may run a little short on you as well. I wore it to a family wedding but I'm not sure I would be comfortable wearing it in a church. I received a ton of compliments and really felt like a stunner in this one!

It was not fitted, more of a shift fit.

It fit exactly like I wanted it to. Was a little shorter than I expected, but I am pretty curvy and the dress hugged in all the right spots. Beautiful neck line and I loved the way everything fit, would definitely rent this again.

Very Pretty Dress, love the color!
This dress is really gorgeous, I love the color and lace but it is REALLY short. The size 4 was WAY too short, so I went with the size 6 and it just fit. The material was super comfy and I received a lot of compliments, just wish it was a bit longer closer to knee length.

Beautiful bright red color and very comfortable.
I usually wear a 4 or 6 in dresses and received this dress when my other one didn't fit. I ended up liking this dress better than the original I ordered. The fit was great, especially since there is a little stretch in the skirt. I received compliments all night on the dress. You won't be sorry with this rental. Thanks RTR!

Perfect little red dress!
I got this dress as a back up and ended up wearing the original dress I ordered. I would love to rent this again. I ordered a size up as recommended but found that it fit really snug and was shorter than I felt comfortable with for my event. I would say to maybe consider ordering two sizes up if you have curves!

Would have been cute if I had the right size.
I am almost always a 4 sometimes a 2. This dress runs small, I think a 6 would have been perfect. I could zip this up but it was way too tight and short to wear to a wedding.

This was an amazing dress that I felt amazing in I was actually so sad when I had to return it.
The arms were a little tight but overall the dress fit well. It does stretch out and I think I could have definitely gone down a size, but felt really comfortable in it. I got a TON of compliments and just felt beautiful wearing it. I would DEFINITELY rent it again, it's a gorgeous and fun dress.

Perfect color red
This dress was beautiful. The color was the most amazing red and I had lipstick that matched perfectly. Quality was great and both sizes actually fit me. I went with the larger size for comfort. The dress is short but the length is balanced out by the long sleeves.

Sexy yet classy. Perfect for a cold season formal affair!
I wore this to a November wedding and it was a hit. I was a little anxious to wear this to a wedding both due to color and length but it ended up working out perfectly. I fit in both the 4 and 6 but went with the 6 mostly for the extra length. This dress is tight so I found that it required spanx. I also found it difficult to wear a statement necklace with. I had rented one but wound up not wearing it because it was too much. I'd focus on accessorizing with fun earrings and/or bangles because the neckline does the talking on this dress! Overall great dress and was a successful renting experience.

Not what I thought it would be
It fits nicely, pretty true to size and although I could see how some would think it's short it wasn't a problem on me. The dress is just not what I was expecting. It's very conservative, even the lace part is a heavy lace material so not very see-through. It is a very pretty dress with a gorgeous neckline but I wanted to look HOT and this was not going to do it. I did not end up wearing the dress. The rental process was smooth but I was pretty disappointed that the dress didn't work for me.

Loved it. The 8 fit perfectly, I didn't think it was too short like the other reviews stated. I got both the 8 and 10, I didn't even feel the need to try on the 10, the 8 was perfect!

This dress was gorgeous
DVF runs small in general. I'm tall (5'11) so taking both into consideration I ordered up a size. The 14 hit at the perfect length and was loose enough I could hit the dance floor with no problems. I got compliments all night long, you can't go wrong with this dress. I paired with black heels and black chandelier earrings. This dress gives you a fun pop of a rich red color.

This was my first RTR experience. It was easy and so convenient! Loved this gorgeous dress!
Ordered a size 2. There was no 0 or 4 available in this color for my date (chronic procrastinator) so I ordered the same dress in black/gold in both 0 and 4. The size 2 fit perfectly. True to size. There was just a little space in the arms and tummy so I could dance and eat comfortably! Got SO many compliments. Would definitely rent again!

The dress was stunning! I received a lot of compliments and felt great wearing it.
It is slightly short. I have short legs but still felt like it would rise up. It also bunched a little bit in the midsection from the underlay. All in all though, I would definitely rent it again!

Great festive holiday dress
I've rented Diane Von Furstenberg dresses before and they all work out really well. This one was a pretty lace and a nice festive red. I would say that this one ran a bit small and was sort of short. I wore a size 10 in her dress in Navy last month for another wedding and the 10 was too snug this time even though I haven't gained any weight. I would definitely recommend sizing up

Pretty yet sexy without being over the top. It was comfortable, too.
Holy short! I'm only 5'4" and regularly wear a 4. I like short dresses, too, but I think the combination of a super short and red dress made me a little uncomfortable. Plus, it was even shorter with heels on. The 6 felt a bit more movable, too, and a little more forgiving for a post-baby bod. Overall, I really liked it, felt good it in and was happy with my choice.

This was a beautiful true red dress perfect for a holiday party. Elegant and sexy
It hugged my curves great in the front, the back zipper did pucker out a little, where the 0 would have been a better fit, but it wasn't available and the length of the 2 was better for sitting down IMO.

Obsessed with this dress!
This was my second time renting the DVF Zarita dress. The first time I ordered it in navy and this time I got the red. I absolutely love this dress, and the fit could not be more perfect. For reference, I'm 5'3 , 32A and 107 pounds, and the 0 fits perfect. The dress isn't too tight or too loose anywhere. It's also not too short and allows you to comfortably dance. I wore this dress both times to a wedding and felt it was definitely appropriate for it.

Love the style and how vibrant the red is! Was perfect for my friend's Christmas Party! :)
This dress was a bit short, but after pairing it with a pair of black tights it was perfect for my friend's Christmas party! Even though I could have made the size 6 work (which is my usual size), I went with the back up size 8. I think the way this dress is cut is meant for girls with more of a straight and narrow or athletic body type since I found it to be riding up a bit throughout the night. That is why for curvier girls, I would advise ordering a size up from your usual size or at least getting a one size up back up. Other than being a little short though, I found the dress to be comfortable, flattering and perfect for my occasion!

Vibrant Red
This was a great dress, but a little shorter than expected. I ended up not wearing it to the family wedding I attended. It was also a little tight. I tried on the 4 (my normal dress size). This dress requires a good pair of spanx! The color and material is fantastic though! I wish it could have worked for me.

Loved it!
This dress was beautiful and comfortable. It ran a bit small and VERY short. I typically wear a 2 and I opted for a 4 to give me a bit more length and room to breathe :) We hosted a NYE party and this dress was perfectly festive and very comfortable to wear into the wee hours of the night.
