I felt like a million bucks in this dress. A two star Admiral's wife AND her 19 year old niece could not stop gushing over my dress. I couldn't even make it to the bathroom with out receiving compliments or thumbs-up from the women passing me by.

By far my favorite RTR rental. I wore this dress to my Godfather’s promotion ceremony and received a ridiculous amounts of compliments from the young and the old. The dress’ structure and bold colors make for a very sophisticated crisp look, while the somewhat stretchy material leaves you plenty of room to breathe. I do suggest ordering your usual size but add a pair of Spanx to accentuate and smooth out the dress. If I hadn’t received so many compliments on my FB pic I would definitely order this dress again!

I loved this dress! It's great for a summer work event, or cocktail party. The colors are amazing and really pop! The fabric is stretchy, so it is comfortable to wear. I wore spanx under this because it is a fitted dress. It hit me just above the knee. I felt great in this!

I wore this to a baby shower in August. It was super comfortable, cute and sophisticated. It was age appropriate but yet still fashion forward. It fit true to size. I ended up wearing the larger size just because I didn't want it to be too form fitting as it was a very hot day

Lovely summer dress

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress for a friend's wedding shower, and it was perfect. The only thing is that the belt is a little strange. It's actually not a belt, it's just a long piece of leather. I wore it without the belt, and it was fine. Also, I listened to the other reviews about the dress running large, and I'm glad I did! I ended up using the smaller of the two sizes.

It was true to size, looked great but I knew it was a little too big. I could have worn a 2. That being said it was easy to move in, comfortable, and fun.

Color blocks made it flattering, form-fitting but not suffocating. wish the length was a little shorter, much longer on me than the model. Bright fun color that was fun for summer. Not a fan of the belt that came with, wore without it.

This dress is gorgeous enough to wear to an uber-fancy restaurant, comfy enough to eat tons in!

This dress fits so well and so comfortably. I'm 5'4", 118 lbs, with shorter legs, a longer torso, and a 34A chest. It flatters the torso area and hugs the top part of your hips/bottom while falling smoothly down for the rest (no J.Lo butt effect here!). I wanted to buy this dress at the end of the night!

I usually wear a six but the four looked better although it was a little tight across the chest. Silk fabric is beautiful but very fragile - a spot of water will leave a mark. I felt very elegant in this dress.

Beautiful and understated dress!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large

I'm usually a 4, so I ordered that and and 2 as backup. I wound up wearing the 2 because the dress was stretchy...realistically I fell somewhere between the 2 and 4 but the 4 was just too big. Loved the dress though, didn't wind up wearing the belt. Got compliments on it all night!

Sooo many compliments!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size

Dress looks AMAZING! Very fitted around the waist which accents curves really well. It didn't come with the belt when I ordered it, but that's ok- it looked great without and I don't know that I would've used it anyway. It was a little tight around my arms/shoulders, but being a swimmer, I've got larger shoulders than average so it probably won't be a problem for most women. The color is gorgeous. I think it looked a little pinker in person (and less orange). It really was perfect for my white coat ceremony for medical school. Conservative, yet sexy, comfortable and dressy.

I rented this dress for a rehearsal dinner. Very comfortable. True to size. Form-fitting, but, in part because of the very high-quality material, definitely not too form-fitting....form-fitting in a very, very classy way, making this dress sophisticated-sexy. Received so many compliments. RTR is the best.

Wonderful dress. Well suited for a bridal shower.

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I wore this dress for a bridal shower and I must say that I was very pleased with the dress. I was initially worried that the dress wouldn't come with the belt, and when I got it in the mail, it turns out that the belt was in fact omitted. I couldn't find a replacement belt in time, but I was still happy with the fit and look of the dress sans belt. The interior of the dress was made of silk and overall the quality of the dress was top notch. The fit was very comfortable and moves well with your body. I'm only 5'2" so the bottom of the dress came right above my knees. The colors were absolutely beautiful in person and it definitely suited the theme of the bridal shower that I went to. This was my first rental and I can definitely say that I will rent more dresses from RTR.

Beautiful color and amazing fabric quality, but very large!

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Date
I rented this dress for my birthday (thanks, RTR Pro!), but unfortunately I wore a different one because this dress was far too large. I’m extremely petite, but normally a 0 will fit me just fine, but in order for this dress to fit, I would have had to had it taken in three inches on each side. I was disappointed, because it is beautiful, but it is what it is. The dress was also missing the belt, which is another reason I only gave it three stars.

This dress is beautiful. The colors are amazing and I received compliments on it all night long. It was the prefect dress for a party at a conservative club. It fit me perfect and the length came right to my knees. Although the material does not really stretch, I was very comfortable and able to dance with no problems. I would highly recommend this dress.

The dress does not come with a belt, FYI. That is deceiving (and mildly irritating). But, it's a quality, conservative, comfortable dress. Wore for a conference in Florida and was perfect.

I wore this dress to a friend's bridal shower. It was completely fine for the occasion and the cut was flattering on my body type, but it didn't really stand out because the colors aren't very vibrant. It did it's job but I wouldn't rent this dress again.
