I enjoyed wearing this nice dress to an outdoor wedding on Long Island!
I ordered both a 4 and 6 for this dress, as I wasn't sure how it would fit. I liked the material, very comfortable. However both dresses were stretched out in the bust area. ( or maybe I am too small?) The 6 was actually smaller then the 4. I wore the 6 and used some fabric tape to hold the top part in a little more. The service and packaging was very easy. I was happy to order from RTR and plan on ordering again.

This dress was perfect for a night out in New York. My husband loved it on me!
The dress was true to size. It was fitted but not too tight. The lace details provided a flattering silhouette - I don't have very many natural curves, but the cut emphasized what I do have. I would definitely rent it again for another occasion.

Sexy
This dress was really sexy. I'm pretty curvy and the lace accent definitely played up my curves. It was very form-fitting, not enough to make it too small, but enough where I felt I needed spanx. Unfortunately, it ended up being the wrong time of the month to try and force myself into spanx and a tight dress, so I decided to wear something else that was more flowy in the midsection area. I really did love this dress though and would definitely rent it again for a different type of event (less eating, less dancing), especially now that I know how it fits and how it looks.

I wore this dress to a late October wedding. I felt beautiful and comfortable. Great for fall&winter
I tried this dress on in a size 4 and 2. At first I was concerned because the dress is a pencil dress and fits close to your hips. Typically I have a hard time finding dresses in this style because I have a very tiny top and curvy butt. The 4 was way to big in the top and fit fine over my hips. I went for the size 2 because the fabric was stretchy and hugged me in all the right places. I felt sexy and still appropriate for a wedding. The lace detail in the middle makes your waist look so tiny! I wish I had a better picture. If you have a cocktail or wedding event in the fall or winter you will be sure to stand out in this dress!

NYE party
Dress was a little snug, but it had enough stretch that it was still comfortable for dancing. Was perfect for the party and I couldn't have been happier with my selection.

The black lace detail was amazing!
I loved this dress and I love RTR!! This was not my first rental, and it definitely wont be my last. I wore this to my family's Christmas Eve party and it was quite the hit. My boyfriend (now finace!) loved the way it looked.

Adorable, but unforgiving seam at waistline
I rented this for New Year's Eve, but was unable to wear it due to the tightness at the waistline seam. This made it uncomfortable and caused the zipper to bunch up in a very unflattering manner. I currently have a 35" waist and tried the size 8. One size up probably would have been fine, but the 8 was actually my backup size, and I wasn't able to have it delivered until the day of the event. Kuddos to the RTR customer service though, who helped me process my does not fit return immediately, disappointed it didn't fit, but I will probably attempt this one again in the future.

Very beautiful details and color.
I wore this dress for NYE. I was supposed to get a backup in the 12, that was unavailable, RTR customer service tried very hard to meet my needs so close to a big holiday. This being said, I would have preferred to have worn the 12. The 10 was a little tight on my midsection causing a spanx necessity. But overall, the dress was very well made, I received numerous compliments.

Very flattering for curvy girls
This dress is excellent if you want to show off your curves. The lace is strategically placed to flatter your figure. The dress isn't exactly what I would describe as "like new" condition. The hem is undone in a few spots and the hook & eye closure has been replaced (but not at the same time, they are different colors). Disappointed in the state of the dress but impressed with the design.

Sexy and slimming. Loved it!
I wore this dress at a wedding located at a ghost town in Nevada. It's definitely a more form fitting dress than I would typically wear, but I couldn't resist. For me, Spanx were a necessity, but they did the trick beautifully. The black on the sides really had a slimming effect. I felt super sexy; my husband wants me to buy this dress. Word of warning, there were some small holes in the seams where it had been squeezed into by previous renters... I didn't mind so much, but the dress definitely did not look brand new.

Classy and hot!
Dress was very comfortable and hugged my curves beautifully. Was able to wear a regular bra which is always a pro for me! I wore this on a girl's night out and we got lots of looks. Can't believe we forgot to take a pic. May have to order this one again!

Lots of compliments but not the stunner I'd expected.
I wore this dress for NYE. I typically wear a 4 but this dress ran small on me so I was happy I'd ordered a size up. The dress is lower cut than I'd expected and showed more cleavage than I was comfortable with. My friends were all very complimentary, though, and thought it looked great. The dress is very form-fitting and the smaller size was tight on the bottom half. If I could have worn the 4 on top and the 6 on bottom, it would have fit perfectly.

Fit great! I wore a push up bra to help out the girls because it may have been a little loose up top. I was able to dance and I had a great time in the dress.

The ease of the process.
First time renting, and it couldn't have gone any better! I rented to wear on New Years Eve. I rented the size 8 and 10 just in case, and the 8 fit perfectly. I got so many compliments. So excited for my next rental to come next week!

New Year's Eve Dress!
Dress runs big! I am usually a size 2 or 4 and i wore a size zero. I am only 5'. The length felt perfect. The torso had room to breathe, and I felt that it fit well except the back once it was zipped up there was some extra material. It did not make much of a difference and still fit well. I am also small busted 34B, I wore a bra with extra padding and it fit great. Overall i was not disappointed, but it is not the perfect dress for a petite girl.

Looked sexy in the red dress!
This was my first dress I rent and I have to say I was blown away The fit was perfect and the dress gave me some hips (that I don't have). Everyone was telling me how good I look and I am a woman who doesn't dress up for me having attention get great. I really recommend the dress, and when is a red dress, you will have the attention all the time!

Form-fitting dress.
Back-up dress after original one was not able to arrive on time. Flattering, but unfortunately, it looked too matronly for my taste. It's a nice dress for a more conservative party.

Great dress
This was a stylist chosen backup as my original backup became unavailable. To see it on the hanger , I honestly wasn't crazy about it, but still tried it on....to my surprise, it looked amazing on! I already have curves but wow!! Accentuated them and the lace is very flattering. My original dress worked out so I didn't end up wearing this one, but I would definitely consider renting again as a first choice.

I got this dress for a Christmas party. The backup size was unavailble but it was ok bc it ran true to size. This dress fit like a glove. Looked great and I am very busty so I was excited that it fit. My only complaint is that I felt like it was short and I kept having to pull it down bc it rode up as I walked.

Surprised by the number of compliments.
The dress slides up a bit as you walk, but nothing a minor tug on the side doesn't fix. Also had to tuck the straps of my bra in so that it didn't show. Black bra would have made it less noticeable.

I absolutely loved this dress. I wore it to a Christmas party and got so many compliments. The black lace on the sides is very slimming and the dress itself is extremely flattering. Felt great all night! I rented both an 8 and a 10 but went with the 10 because it was a little more comfortable.

Dress was a tad big on top so if you have a small bust this would not be a good dress for you. I felt the rest of the dress fit true to size. The material is stretchy and fits curves very nicely!

The size 2 was a little too sexy, so I wore the 4 to a work Christmas event. Dress quality was good, fabric pinched a little around the bust but gave me curves in all the right places! Looked great!

The fit is snug, but flattering. The lace really adds elegance to the dress. The length is a great length, not quite to the knee but not too short either.

Received compliments all night!
I rented both size 2 and 4 as I am often in between the two sizes in the bust. The 4 fit although a little big in the shoulders and not as shapely. My boyfriend preferred the 2 as it hugged my figure nicely. The lace inserts gave the appearance of a smaller waist which is always nice. The dress was very comfortable to wear as the fabric has some stretch to it. The only problem was a very small hole at the seam underneath the zipper but nothing a safety pin couldn't fix. The color was great for a Christmas party and I received compliments all night long. Would definitely rent again!

This dress is really pretty and unique!
I would say it is true to size, but just be careful if you have a belly or a bigger chest, as this dress will definitely accentuate both. I maybe should've gone a size up so it wasn't as tight, but overall was a nice holiday dress.

Fun and flirty holiday dress!
I ordered both the 0 and the 2. The 2 have more breathing room overall, but the shoulders of the dress were too big. I went with the 0 and felt comfortable all night. I did safety pin my bra straps to the inside of the dress so they wouldn't be seen. Overall a fun dress to wear! I got so many compliments and felt amazing!

It gives the optical illusion of a great waist.
I found that my typical size, an 8, was clinger than I prefer. Even with the 10, I found that the material showed what was underneath (ie the seam of my panty hose). From afar however, the dress is great. My friend ended up borrowing my back up size for another night. Both of us are athletic/straight and narrow types and it made us look very curvy.

Was tight around my hips and loose in the shoulders. Also the lace was frayed at the edges - not sure if it's supposed to be that way, but I thought it looked a little sloppy.

Beautiful dress. As a new momma, it was a bit daring to wear such a snug dress. But I felt hot! :)
The fit was true to size. There was a small hole on the inseam at the hip, a stain on the breast area, and the zipper was a bit messed up. So I was not impressed by the state the dress was in. You could tell it has been worn many times.
