The dress was in great condition and was great for my husband's company Christmas party.

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
A tad large though I did lose some weight recently so I probably could have worn the size 10. The dress was very comfortable and though I wore a strapless bra I could have worn a regular bra easily. Dresses for a large bust (I am really a G) are hard to find but this one really worked. It reads blue in the photos but its really green!

Very classy dress! True to size, and stretchy enough to dance the night away.

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
First, the dress is really more green than the blue in the photographs but I knew that because I actually saw this dress at the Tahari outlet Christmas shopping this year. I couldn't wait to wear it and was not disappointed. It had enough weight and stretch that I didn't even wear the Spanx I brought with me. I felt so expensive, and judging from compliments I received, I looked it! RTR really went the extra mile to get this dress to my event on time, their customer service team is GREAT. Thank you RTR for making me feel beautiful.

Absolutely love this dress!! Perfect for a wedding!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
I got so many compliments on this dress all night and shockingly it was pretty comfortable so I could dance all night. The panel in the middle is blue sequins but in some pictures it does look a little blue green-ish. I wore really simple black pumps which worked well. The dress runs a tad big and has a good amount of stretch to it. It's great, though, because you can wear a normal bra. The wedding I went to was a Sunday evening in LA and it felt like exactly the right amount of fancy for cocktail attire. Super happy with the whole process and the dress.

The dress fit true to size, with plenty of stretch and the sequined front panel was figure flattering. I was comfortable all night! Wore to a casino night charity fundraiser and got lots of compliments!

Sexy, but subtle.

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I rented this for a formal fundraising dinner. It is a very sexy (fit wise), but understated dress. It didn't have the complete "wow, everyone is going to compliment you all night" factor that other rentals had, but it fits like a glove and looks and feels great! My husband was wowed, and wished I could have kept it for longer. This dress fits amazingly, although it does ride up a little when you walk, and is short enough to be sexy without being inappropriate.

My trouble area is my abdomen but this dress fIt perfectly - the material has a bit of stretch to it so it ends up looking and feeling as though it was made for you. Made me look like a pear rather than an apple :) I would definitely recommend renting this outfit

Too large

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I rented this dress in my usual size (8) about four months ago, and I couldn't wear it because it was too large. However, I loved the concept of the dress with the teal blue sequin panel, modest shape, and low rental price. I decided I would try and rent it again in one size smaller. It fit my hips/butt this time, but it was still very, very large in the chest, shoulders, and waist. I had several inches of excess fabric. This dress is best suited for an apple shape, and the slimming silhouette would be nice for someone who wants to create an hourglass figure.

Beautiful and form flattering, just a little warm for a Hawaii summer evening!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
I was pleasantly surprised that the dress fit as well as it did. I never know after seeing them on the models, because I am certainly nowhere near as skinny as they are, but I was very pleased with the fit. The only complaint I have is that the dress is a little heavy - you'd figure a sleeveless dress would be comfortable, but it was just a little bit warm for the Hawaii humidity. All things considered, though, it was the perfect dress for a wonderful evening.

The bride LOVED teal & sparkles, so the teal sequins were perfect for this particular wedding!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The fit was fantastic; very true-to-size. The hourglass pattern of the sequins on the front was very slimming and flattering. I paired it with shiny onyx pendant earrings & bangles. I went with black heels & clutch. I highly recommend this dress. I got so many compliments!!!

Bigger than expected

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
The dress was very pretty and looked pretty good, but was larger than expected, especially in the top half. I typically wear a size 6, so I ordered a size 6 and backup size 8 since some of the reviews mentioned that the dress ran small. I'm not sure if a size 4 would have fit, but the 6 was definitely large.

This was my second time renting this dress and it was just as fab as the first time. The side panels have a bit of stretch so it's super comfy, while also being slimming and chic. Received many compliments, the second pic is at my party taken by a photographer friend.

Beautiful but not for very peary pears

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Well made, easy to wear, and looked just like the photos. Unfortunately I lost the gamble that it would suit my extremely pear shape (I've been measured as a size 4 bodice, 2 waist, 8 hips). The 6 worked for the night, but it was definitely tight in the hips and loose in the chest. Still got me compliments!

LOVED this dress. Wish I owned it.

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Absolutely LOVED this dress. It was super comfortable and made of a nice stretchy material that was also breathable/not too hot. The fit was perfect, maybe even running a bit large, since it accommodated even my large chest size no problem. As for length, I'm just over 5'3" and it hit right at the knees. The colored sequined pattern on the front was a lovely mermaid-y blue-green sort of color, just enough sparkle to make it festive. I would totally rent this one again. Wish I owned it!

Classy and Flattering

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this to my sister-in-law's wedding in early October. The fit is very flattering; I have a bit of a stomach pooch and this dress really minimized it. I liked that the sequin detailing is subtle; they are like a teal green color and the pattern almost reminded me of fish scales - just enough to make an otherwise run of the mill LBD pop. I ordered a size down due to other reviewers' comments and am glad that I did - the 8 fit perfectly even though I haven't worn an 8 in years :-) Its not a WOW dress that you'll get tons of compliments on, but its a safe bet for a nice fit, comfort, and class.

I think it fit true to size. It was bigger through my middle, but don't think my chest would have allowed me a smaller size. Was able to eat, sit and dance very easily all night long! #wedding #rtrforlife

I am usually a 10 or a 12, and was slightly between sizes on this dress, but went with the 12 since it was a bit more comfortable. I loved this dress. Really flattering and easy to wear.

Slimming and Formal

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
This is a very pretty dress, with peacock-iridescent sequins. The dark panels on the sides make it very slimming. It was a bit too small, however, so I wore the other dress I chose instead. This is a nice option for a formal party, as the sequins make it dressier than it may look in the pictures. My one criticism is that the zipper in the back shows quite prominently.

I wore this dress for my company holiday party. I had about 20 minutes to get dressed and ready so I threw the dress on and quickly did my hair and i felt great all night. The dress was easy to wear, very comfy and was perfect for the occasion. I am still shedding some baby weight and this dress made me feel great (hid the problem areas!)! I can't thank you enough RTR - I stress so much LESS getting ready for a night out.

Dress was perfect. First time renting a dress and thrilled at the outcome. It fit nicely with a little give. Dress is lined and made of high quality material. The panel gave it a more fancy look and definitely made the dress more interesting. I received a lot of compliments. My decision was easy because of the reviews and the pictures uploaded by those who rented. This is an awesome site!!! I will definitely rent a dress again!

Nice Detail

Size worn: 6

I'm attaching a close up of the detailing on this dress so that the detail can be appreciated. Of the 4 rentals I've done so far this dress is my favorite by a mile. The material is on the heavy side, which I liked for New Years Eve in a cool climate. Not a "wowsa" attention grabbing head turning dress, but classy and sophisticated with a pop. I recommend this dress.

This was my second choice dress, but luckily I received it because my first one was snowed in Jersey thanks to Juno. As others have said, this dress is not a "showstopper," but it does fit extremely well and really complimented my curves. I attached an up-close photo so you could see the sequin detailing. I felt most special because of the great fit and high-quality of the dress.

Dress arrived too late for my function, so I tried it on before sending it back to see how it fit. The 10 fit well. I think adding Spanx/stockings would have helped smooth out the tummy a bit and let it hang more nicely. Both dresses were in good condition and comfortable. Great to be able to wear a normal bra. Easy to match with shoes! The sequins were a great color and photographed differently depending on the light. Really nice dress.

I was so pleasantly surprised with this dress! It is way more beautiful and nicer in person than in pictures. In fact, when I received it, it became clear it was TOO nice for my event. Even though, I didn't wear it this time around, I would definitely rent it for a more formal event in the future. It fit great (ordered both the 10 and 12 and both fit- even with my large chest). It was flattering and sexy without being too revealing.

My usual size fit well. I don't think it would have worked for dancing because the skirt was a bit constrictive around my thighs, but I was comfortable enough for a nice dinner party.
