Disappointed in selection at RTR store BUT happy with this dress
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I went to RTR store in Soho as I wanted another dress option for friends NYC morning wedding. Was disappointed with the selection of dresses, sizes, etc in the store BUT found this ONE dress. Beautiful Elie Tahari dress. Should have known before I looked at the label. This is one of my go to brands. I thought it ran on the small side as I am normally a 0 and this dress was a 2. I am short 4'11'' so I thought the dress would be a tad too long but it wasn't. I received tons of compliments on the classic style of the dress, colorful print and pop of modern with the yellow. It coordinated well with my fiancé's blue shirt and tie.

Beautiful fabric and pattern

Dress fit beautifully. Perfectly modest yet fancy enough for a church wedding leading into a hotel reception. Fabric was soft and slightly stretchy for a comfortable fit. Rented two dresses and my sister said both looked as it they were made for me. SO much better than spending hours in the mall!

Stylist Review!
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
My favorite new RTR dress. It's a great pattern which is super flattering for the spring and summer. Material is light and thin without being see-through and still covers problem areas. There is a small piece of neon fabric at the bust which is a great color addition! Would highly recommend for a work event or a cocktail party. Pattern is great!

Unique Print & Easy to Wear
Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress is a classic sheath and fit true to size. While it is form fitting there was ample room for my "problem areas" on top and in the middle. Those who smaller on top may consider sizing down for their extra size. It worked well for a "cocktail chic" charity event.

I wore this to my bridal shower and it was great. I needed a bit more coverage for my chest, especially after tucking down the (random?) piece of neon fabric. Overall, would def. recommend!

Nice, Office Appropriate Dress
Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size

I rented this for a work holiday party just for fun. The party was right after work, so this was a nice choice to wear with a blazer during the day and without the jacket at the party. No complaints at all about the dress - very comfortable, flattering and perfect for a work event.

I got so many compliments on this dress that I rented for my 5 yr college reunion in June! Loved it!
Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
It is snug, but the fabric has some stretch to it, which was great. I wore a strapless bra and spanx just to smooth it all out since the fabric is thin and it worked great. I loved the length, right above my knee and I'm tall, so on shorter girls it would be longer. Overall, great dress and I wish I could own it!

The top goes down a bit low so I was showing some cleavage. But otherwise it's a great dress, easy to wear and doesn't need a lot in terms of accessories.

Not flattering on larger hips. Very pretty pattern and color.
Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I found that the dress material was very comfortable, however a little tight in the chest. Material was on the thicker side which worked out well for a fall New England Day. Though the dress was very pretty I don't recommend it for larger hip body types; Made the dress ride up constantly and bunch up in the mid section.

I rented this to wear for a big presentation at work and a client dinner thereafter (black blazer in day, change of pumps/jewelry for evening). It was totally appropriate yet not stodgy. VERY versatile, comfortable, wore well through a 12+-hour day. I highly recommend and only apologize that I forgot to take a photo.

Lovely Dress
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is gorgeous and could be worn for several occasions. I loved the pop of neon at the bust, and the neckline is modest enough but still flirty. The material at the shoulders is narrow and has little clasps to secure your bra straps as you can comfortably wear a standard bra with this dress. The back is fully covered, making this dress appropriate for business or church functions. The pattern is fabulous and the dress itself is well tailored, making it quite forgiving in 'problem' areas.

Great Dress
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I was surprised at how well this dress fit me. The sizing was just right. I am a busty girl with a bit of a tummy and this dress accommodated both well. I normally don't go for sheath dresses because of my figure flaws, but the pattern in the dress hit my tummy nicely. This is a very well constructed, high quality dress. I would definitely rent this again!

Just perfect!
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This was such a win for me. Print is really big now and this is nice one, but the black in the back and the accentuated zipper kept it edgy. The lace is on the print, not a textured layer, so that kept it very modern. I am petite, so it could have been shorter, but with really high heels this was still just fine for a wedding. No problem wearing a bra and the fabric is great for warmer weather but still stiff enough to cover problem areas without showing bulge. Also, the waist line falls a little higher on the dress, so it lays flat over the tummy - a plus for me! I wear 6/8/M, 5'2", 127 pounds, 34B and the six was perfect. I wore minimalist heels as styled on the model.

Edgy but classic
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Great dress with just the right amount of funk. I wore the dress to an evening spring wedding in NYC and wanted something that was appropriate but still fun. The little bit of neon at the V-neck is cute. My one problem is I have larger hips and the dress kept riding up a bit. I opted for the size 6 to accomodate my hips, but it was something I was aware of all night. You can wear a normal bra- it has strap keepers- and wasn't too revealing up top. I'm taller and it still hit right above the knee, which is often a problem with dresses like this. Overall, I was happy with it and wish it was in my regular rotation!

Flattering on the models. Too low cut for a full bust. And the black circle pattern below the waist screamed "look at my tummy"
