Fantastic color!
Went with the larger size so I had plenty of give with the dress on the dance floor. The color popped in every picture.

Obsessed with this dress!
I rented this for a casual Mardi Gras party, and I had no faith that it would look good. I loved it and received compliments all night. I ended up wearing it to the party and again to work with a cardigan.

summer work party
Fit of the dress was just what I wanted and true to all other reviews. Clings to your shape, and really shows it off. Loved the color, purple is different for me but I really enjoyed it. I just was slightly overdressed for the event, but I didn't mind.

I received so many compliments, it was classy and conservative with a little edge.
This dress fit perfectly. There was plenty of give and runs true to size. I did wear spanx for smoother look but could have worn regular undergarments. I will definitely rent this dress again!!!

This dress just fit like a glove and was super comfortable to dance in. The dress looks great in photos because the color is so vibrant. I liked the detail on the cap sleeve.

Great color not too good at hiding the belly
I loved the color of his dress...great alternative for Valentine's Day instead of the sea of reds and blacks. The fabric was thin so didn't have much help in shaping well for me. Should have worn spanx :-). Wore with black pumps.

Beautiful fit and fabric, great dress for professional event.
I'm 5'2", 128 pounds, generally a size 4. The size 4 was a body-con fit on me, which would have been perfect for a date or wedding. I opted to wear the size 6 since I was going to a business event. Beautiful color and fabric; very comfortable and low-maintenance.

cute dress, weird shoulders
definitely do not rent this dress if you have medium to broad shoulders. would be good for someone with narrow shoulders. the cap sleeves make you look really wide up top. this was a backup for me thankfully! nice fabric and came in good condition. just not for us athletic girls!

Beautiful Color!
Loved the color of this dress, it's even more vibrant in person. The 6 fit like a glove but I opted to wear the 8 so I would feel more comfortable. The black lining around the neckline sometimes showed which was slightly annoying

Not my usual, but nice.
Everything about this dress was great, it just wasn't my style. It has a pretty high neckline for my taste, so it was weird for me to get used to, but I'm sure there are people that don't necessarily like low necklines all the time. The color is great and I felt I looked good while wearing it to a beautiful steak dinner.

Such a comfortable yet pretty and unique dress!
I loved this dress! It was great for a casual night out in Vegas - the color is gorgeous and there was a fun little detail with a tiny cutout on the shoulders and underneath the top of the dress at the collar is a darker purple leather layer that when it peaks out is cute! Super comfy and stretchy and true to size.

Great color, great dress!
I rented this dress for a bridal shower. I ordered two sizes because depending on the dress, the sizes I wear vary. I went with the 6 because it fit more snug and looked better, the 8 was too loose. The dress was very comfortable and a great color. I wore a black necklace with it because I felt it was too plain without one.

Not forgiving in the midsection. Not worn.
I ordered this as a backup dress and I'm so happy the first dress fit because this did NOT work for me in a size 4. I thought that the midsection would be somewhat forgiving given the way it was made (seemingly criss-cross fabric), but it was not. My little tummy bulge stuck out. This may have possibly worked for me in a 6, but I'll never know- I doubt I'll ever try to order the dress again. I would put it on and take and post a picture, but I don't want to- it really looked THAT bad on me!

Didn't get to wear this but great customer service experience to find alternative
I never received the dress. There was an issue with the size I ordered. I still gave this review 5 stars because I stylist promptly contacted me about the issue and assisted me with finding a more than suitable alternative (honoring the same rental price although the replacement was priced higher) in a crunch. Thanks, RTR!

Vibrant, figure flattering dress
I ordered a 6 and a 8 and ended up wearing the 8. In my opinion, the sizes run a bit small, but the 8 fit wonderfully and was super flattering. I got a ton of compliments and would definitely rent this dress again.

The bright color of this dress is perfect for a hot, summer look!
When I read the other reviews on this dress, I decided to rent up a size. This dress was a bit big actually and I should have stayed true to my regular RTR size of 2 and 4. Otherwise, it was perfect and loved the color.

Great color. Perfect for lots of photographs.
Very flattering fit and cut with simple, charming details. Runs true to size. Go with a statement necklace and nude or black heels. BAM. You'll be the hot chick at the party.

Fun party dress
I rented this as my backup dress for a wedding. I didn't end up wearing it because it was pretty short on me so I didn't think it was appropriate. This would be a great dress for a night out though. Also - the color is more purple than in the picture, which actually made me like it even more.

Perfect dress for a wedding or night out!
I wore this dress to two weddings in one day! It was very comfortable and easy to move around in. The fabric has a great stretch to it, and it's very flattering. I would highly recommend for anyone looking to pull off a classy yet trendy look. I ordered the 6 and the 8, but the small seam tacking the black lining around the inside of the neckline was broken on the size 6. When I tried it on, it didn't seem to look quite right as you could see the black lining showing. So I went with the 8 instead. It was a little looser in the hip and thigh area, but still looked great! The dress is fitted enough, I would recommend going one size up for the back-up in case you aren't as comfortable with such a form fitting dress. The fabric is nice and thick, so it should be flattering on all body types!

Chic, colorful, perfect!
This was my first RTR rental, and I am pleased at how well it went. I rented a 6 and an 8, and both ended up fitting. I chose the 6, which was a bit snug but nice for date night. The dress looks classy and fits well. The color is a much more vivid purple in person, but I loved it! I wish I could find it to buy. I also got the Badgley Mischka Falling Leaf earrings as a stylist surprise, and they were big, blingy, and fun.

Classy But Fun
The length of this dress is great- I have longer legs and feel self conscious in short dresses but this hit nicely mid-to-low thigh. The fabric is a bit stiff, and I ended up wearing a 6 rather than my standard 4 so that I could eat and dance without feeling like a stuffed sausage. It's a great bright color!

Loved this dress!!
I loved this dress. It fit perfect!. The dress was extremely comfortable and the length was just right. The dress is much more purple then the photo shows, which I loved. I wore it to the Lion King on Broadway for Valentines Day. its dressy enough without feeling over dressed.

Very pretty-beautiful purple color!
This dress fit true to size and the seams were very flattering. Normally I hate cap sleeves (because I have broad shoulders) but I still thought it looked great. BEAUTIFUL purple color. I ended up wearing something different for my law school graduation, but this would be perfect for another event, such as an office party, etc.

Amazing color!
First and foremost....the color of this dress is amazing. It's a deep vibrant royal purple and definitely makes you stand out in a crowd. The skirt hit me about 2 inches above the knee. I ordered the 6 and the 8 and ended up wearing the 8 for the wedding, but probably would have gone with the 6 for date night for a sexier fit. Overall beautiful dress.
