First RTR rental: So easy and loved the dress!
This dress was super comfortable and perfect for the family wedding I attended. I wore a nubra and seamless underwear, both of which I recommended for this dress. I got compliments all night long- will definitely use RTR again!

Beautiful dress worn to a fundraiser! Comfy and true to size.
This dress was very comfortable and fit well, except for the length. It was a little longer than I expected. Also, the peach color is a little more muted than it shows online. I wore a bodysuit underneath and though you could see the straps through the sheer material at the top, it actually looked like part of the dress and I didn't have to wear a strapless. You could probably get away without wearing a bra at all as the top fits pretty snugly. This dress hugs all of your curves.

Cute and comfortable dress!
I wore this to a wedding. The fit was very flattering and got tons of compliments. It was also good material for a summer wedding, I was not hot when I wore it

This dress fit perfectly! It was fitted but elastic material gave room to move around comfortably.
Great dress! It was my back up but could easily be the best choice for a wedding, date or work.

This was not a flattering dress
I was not s fan of the tan fabric on me. I think I might have been a bit to big through the mid section.

I got plenty of compliments on this dress... Fit was great!
Plenty of compliments, felt like the belle of the ball!! Wore this to my uncle's 60th bday celebration. It was a very formal affair. The fit was very true to size for me. I'm normally a 6 and a 6 worked perfectly. I stand only at 5'1 and the length was perfect also. RTR delivery was speedy, very easy to return, dress came in perfect condition! The fit on me was amazing!! I really can't say anything was wrong with this dress for me!! Will definitely use them again!!

Sexy & classy
This was my first RTR experience & I couldn't be more pleased! I wore this to my bridal shower and received many compliments! I was a little nervous to rent due to my larger bust but the dress fits true to size, is stretchy & super comfortable! Would definitely rent again :)

Made for a taller person.
I ordered this dress as an "extra" & it arrived in great shape & on time with the other 2 I had ordered. Unfortunately, this dress was so long on me that there was no way I could wear it. I f you are around 5'0 or under, I would not suggest this for you . Unfortunately I had to go with one of my old dresses for the wedding I was attending that night. The RTR customer service was AMAZING through it, so due to that, I can't wait to rent again.

I really enjoyed hearing all of the complements that I received! The dress is very slimming!
The perfect dress for the occasion! I had a video shoot at my house for a commercial and the dress was perfect, I got tons of complements and had a great time. The dress has lots of stretch and is very stylish but comfortable. Its also good to have spanx.

Just OK
This is a cute dress, especially if you're on the slim/curvy side. It was just about two inches too wide for my frame but still wearable.

Felt classy and sexy at the same time
I ended up wearing my back up of 6 since I heard it ran large - it was still a little big but only noticeable to me. Beware - it is curve hugging so you can see everything! Seamless bra/spanx recommended.

Unlined! Fit like a baggy t-shirt
Did not like the quality of this dress. Hard to believe it was designer made. Unlined, exposed seams on the underside lent itself to bumps, baggy areas. I am petite, and have toned body, and this looked awful on. Couldn't wear.

Nice concept, poor fit
Ended up returning this dress. It was not flattering on and the shoulders were a bit big, even in the smaller of the two sizes I ordered. Was disappointed that this rental did not work out.

Ordered this for NYE. Great party dress!!
This dress runs big. I wish I ordered a size smaller. The lines great such a great shape. If your going to be dancing the night away this is the dress for you. Wear spanx or risk some serious VPL.

I only got one size (10) and it was too big. The 8 or 6 probably would have been perfect.

Show off your curves!
I really liked this dress! The pink and black were a great color combination. The dress is made to show off your curves...I got compliments all night! My only critique of the dress is that I wished it were a teeny bit tighter...it fit well but I wanted it to be perfect. It run a tad bit large. Would have wanted to try the size 4 but it wasn't available. Still: great dress!

I wanted to look classy and still sexy at the same time. Mission Complete!
This dress was great. The sheer top made it looks sexy while still being class at the same time. The color blocking is very slimming. It's tight but not TOO tight. I could fit into the 6 but decided to wear the 8 because I was going to be eating a lot that day. It was a great dress, I will wear it again.

Lovely dress, but it's not Black and White!
Lovely dress. Fits nicely and it's well made, with cute details (like the see-through fabric and the chunky silver zipper on the back). I was expecting a black and off white dress though, instead it's black and beige (almost skin color). I am not a big fan of the color combination—as I think BW would have been more elegant. Oh, the dress came with a bad of Neutrogena samples, which was a nice unexpected touch :) There is very little difference between size 6 and size 8—I can wear them both as a matter fact.

Hits the curves and hides imperfections easily.

Flattering and comfortable
The dress definitely runs large--order down at least one size. However, when in the right size, the dress is very complimentary.

Pretty dress. Form fitting and figure flattering but long enough so it felt conservative.
I am an athlete and have a very straight shape with wide shoulders and large thighs so finding a dress that flatters is tough. This dress gave me the illusion of a shape I don't normally see. I normally wear a 12 but the 10 fit quite comfortably. The material has a lot of stretch so order down, for sure. The color contrast from the waist to the bust is a very light beige-pink. Due to the mesh on top, I wore a strapless bra. The material is fairly thick but comfortable. I paired the dress with simple nude pumps and a pretty scarf for outside. I also rented the bangles and gold hoops for RTR. Loved the earrings didn't care for the bangles, felt like plastic.

The dress is pretty stretchy so I found the dress to run large.

Classy twist on an LBD!
Overall it is an extremely flattering dress - I received many compliments. I wish I had ordered a size down as my second option. A lot of other reviews said that it runs small but I thought it was a little big (it is kind of stretchy material so mine might have just been stretched out). Very classy/flattering look and I am happy I rented it!

I wore this to a small wedding and it was perfect. Loved the color and how comfortable it was.
Fit great, super comfy and very classy. Only down fall is I probably should of ordered a size smaller because it was a tad large. Other than that Great dress.

Very comfortable dress with a touch of sexy with the sheer top.
The fabric was a lower quality than I expected. It's more of a thick cotton knit and looked like it had been worn several times. With that being said, it was very, very comfortable and covered all the right places without being too conservative. It was a good choice for a work-related fundraiser but not overly formal.

I had concerns about the dress to begin with but had no issues whatsoever!
I ordered a 0 and 2 and didn't even have to try on the 2. The 0 fit so comfortably and was a stretchy material to make the dress work all night long. It was very flattering, I loved it!

I didn't think I would like this dress but I was so wrong, I wear it to a wedding
The fit of the dress runs a little big, so I had to wear the size 10, which fitted perfectly. I am full busted and curvy and it filled all the right places.

Such a fun event and a great formal dress for it!
Dress was perfect fit, I'm usually a size 4 but they didn't have my size on such short notice so I took a chance on going a size down and I'm glad I did! It fit like a glove and if you are curvy the design showed off my curves amazingly! Great dress for a curvy woman!

Beautiful dress!
This dress fit like a glove! I normally order an 8 and a 10 because I am in-between sizes. In this case, the 10 fit better. If you are a full bust and like to wear a traditional bra, the straps will show, but lucky for me, it was colder than expected so I was able to put a blazer on and go.
