Overall fit: Large
I rented a 6 and an 8, and the 6 was plenty big (I didn't even realize that the fabric had stretch until I re-read the description just now) and a bit too long on my 5'5"/125 lb. frame. Bare legs are a must; I tried black tights because it was freezing out, but they looked terrible against the light hemline. Nice details (dolman sleeve, pleats on cuff) and great print; good dress for a work-related event or where you want to be covered up but not matronly.

I got a million compliments on this dress - it's beautiful enough for a special evening out and it's a great "big day at work" frock.

Definitely runs a little large. Nice print and details, though. High neckline is work appropriate but still interesting.

Pretty dress

Overall fit: Large

The dress was a perfect choice for my husband's work event/party. The material is gorgeous. Unfortunately, the dress didn't come with the belt you see in the picture. I wish I had known that before I opened the garment bag. Luckily, I had a belt. It wasn't perfect for the dress but good enough.

Fantastic!

I had a few events to go to on the day I wore the dress and everyone loved the dress at each one. I have never gotten so many compliments on a garment in my life! It was very comfortable and kept it's shape throughout the day. The neckline and length are modest enough for a conservative crowd but the dress is still sexy. I will definitely rent it again.

Wonderful!

I rented this dress for Christmas Eve and wore it to sing at Mass and then to 2 family parties. It was definitely comfortable enough to wear for several hours - I almost wore it to wrap my last few gifts at the end of the night... I usually wear a 6 in dresses but needed the 4 in this. It has some stretch but not enough that it's shapeless, so I'd recommend going down a size for a backup. This was a great dress! I received a ton of compliments. It was perfect for what I needed; it was conservative but still beautiful. After seeing it in person, I'd agree with the previous posters who said that it'd be great for a more formal work function as well.

Absolutely perfect!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Other
I read the reviews on here and others had said this dress runs a bit larger than usual. I normally wear a 6 and ordered a 4 and 6. The 6 looked fine, but the 4 knocked it out of the park. I added my own thin patent leather belt, as it doesn't come with one, and my waist looked tiny! I have an hour glass shape and this dress huged it perfectly while still remaining work appropriate. I had a big work dinner in NYC and this dress was perfect for the occasion. Very Audrey Hepburn! I even looked for this dress to buy, but haven't found it yet. If you rent this dress, you will not be disappointed!

Loved the dress

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size

Loved the dress, but not the snags. Everything about the dress is beautiful. . . the cut, the material, the details, the print. Everything except the snags. Most of the snags had been "pulled out" so vertical lines were left in the print of the dress. I had a small crochet hook so I was able to pull some of the remaining larger snags to the inside of the dress. For $75, I really expected a dress in better condition. Disappointing, but I am looking forward to my third rental in June.

perfect fit

Overall fit: True to Size

Fits like a glove, cool material, only a slight stretch to it, but super comfy and flattering. it is pretty fitted, but very flattering. I like that the hemline was a bit longer. the pattern is definately an animal print (i thought it was more of a wash print). I dont particularly like how my lower abdominals look in most fitted dresses, but I liked this. wore it for a family christmas party w black heels.

I wore this dress for an important business meeting. I work for a retail development firm and it's important to dress business professional, but also stylish. It looked great with a fitted cropped-sleeve blazer. I have curves and the dress fit very well. I usually wear shape-wear and didn't have to for this dress. It is a little long. I'm 5'2" and it was about 3" too long.

A friend that I hadn't spoken to in years approached me at the wedding, and the first thing she said was how much she loved my dress! It was a wonderful compliment!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this dress for a college friend's wedding. I rented a 4 and a 6, and the 4 fit perfectly (a size smaller than I usually wear). I was disappointed though because RTR sent the wrong size belt with the dress. The dress comes with a small fabric belt, and RTR sent a size 14 instead of a 4. No worries though, because you can see in the picture that I substituted with my own belt. I suggest a spandex slip underneath, as it is slightly body hugging. The material is so comfortable though and definitely ideal for a long night of dancing! I loved this dress!

I wore this dress to a work function and it was perfect for the ocassion. It could be dressed up or down. The fit was true to size. This dress is conservative but still fun. A word of warning: I was sent one belt in an incorrect size.

Pretty yet conservative dress. Appropriate for work function, engagement party, or shower.

It was missing a belt, so I added a silver metal belt and got lots of complements for a daytime party. Conservative, yet sophisticated when you don't want to bare it all.

Good for a work event

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I rented this dress for a daytime work party and wore it with black tights and boots--fashion-forward but still conservative enough for the office. The fabric feels soft and has a good amount of stretch, but like another reviewer commented, there were a lot of threads coming off the dress. I thought it cheapened the look a little bit. The dress also didn't come with a belt (somewhat deceptive since there is one in the photos--you should make that clear in the description RTR), but I added my own so it worked out fine.

Beautiful, Comfortable Dress.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this to a rehearsal dinner and it was beautiful. Awesome, unique print and super soft material. As other reviewers have said, it did not come with a belt so I added my own and it looked great. Runs slightly large so you could probably size down unless you have an extremely large bust (I had to wear a minimizing bra.) There were some snags in the material, but honestly I thought they were part of the print until I looked closely. This is a dress I would love to own.

The dress looked beautiful but unfortunately, it didnt fit me :( However, Megan at customer service was extremly helpful with the return! She credited my account on the spot and applied it to another order that I had! She was very pleasant to talk to and I'm very satisfied with RTR customer service!

The top and arms were snug and there was an excess of fabric at the hips. Probably just me learning to judge and apply reviews to myself. It was my $25 add on.

Perfect for work event

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large

I received many compliments at my office holiday party. The dress is very figure flattering without being too revealing. I'm usually a dress size 4, only a size 2 and 6 were available for rental. Good thing the dress has some stretch, so I was able to squeeze in the smaller (more fitted) size. Added my own belt as I read others had (so the mismatched larger belt that was sent was not needed).

Stunning pattern and fit!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This might be my all time favorite rental. The pattern is just beautiful, and the fit is so flattering. My husband said I look hot, and he's not one to give out a lot of compliments. This is a dress you could wear to work for an important meeting, but also wear to a cocktail party. I wore it to church and to a family Christmas party. It didn't come with a belt as pictured, and I just wore it without - still looked fine. It is such a fabulous dress - I had to have it! It's from their 2011 line so you can't find it in stores anymore, but I managed to snag one NWT on ebay. LOVE this dress!

Perfect for my work function in LA. The fit was true to size. I received lots of compliments. The dress photographed well. Dress is lined with a little stretch so no need for Spanx. Condition of the dress looked slightly worn, but you couldn't tell unless you examined it up close.

Absolutely loved this dress but sadly I could not wear it as it was too loose. Style-wise, this dress is a fabulous mix of classic and edgy. Hopefully they get the size 4 back in stock so I can rent it another time!

I adored this dress! It was a great, flattering dress for a September wedding in Colorado. I wish I didn't have to return it! The bottom of the dress (or at least my dress) had a slight green tint to it, but I loved it. I had enough room in the dress to move around at the wedding to take photographs, which means that there are no photos of me, unfortunately! But I enjoyed wearing it and I got many compliments!
