Very nice!
I had 2 company Christmas parties to go to and rented 2 dresses. Unfortunately, I didn't have a back up size on this dress as I used the back up for the other dress. I still wore it although it was a bit tight. Still got lots of compliments in person and when I posted a pic on my social media. The dress is very photogenic. Another good rental!

Beautiful dress, lovely cut!
The dress is really pretty, and I got a ton of compliments! But be wary, it is tight around the ribs. Size 6 wasn't available, but size 8 was my backup. Thank GOSH, since my hubby had to help zip me up into the 8. If you have a larger chest, I'd advise to skip this rental. It flattens the girls down and again, is pretty tight around the upper ribs. But, if you have a little middle pudge or larger thighs, this dress is awesome in hiding it and making you feel so pretty!

So Comfy and Flattering!
I rented the dress for a black tie optional awards dinner. I wore the 12, didn't even bother trying on the 10 because the 12 fit so well. The fabric was much lighter in weight than I thought it would be. There was a bit of odd gaping at the arms on the bodice for me, but it wasn't super noticeable. Because the top was so structured, I didn't need a bra, but it wasn't so structured that I was uncomfortable. The only thing this dress was missing was pockets!

Great fit
Super comfortable. Length was perfect. Fit is great too. I probably could've sized down since the hips are not fitted so there was some extra fabric over my stomach, but I was still overall happy with the dress.

Perfect for a wedding where you don't know how dressed up everyone else will be!
This definitely runs small. I am usually a 4-6, and thanks to the other reviewers I got an 8 as my backup size. Even that was slightly tight in the waist! It's really flattering though, very wearable, and I got lots of compliments! Just be sure to size up.

I rented this for a fundraiser. I loved the blue/black. It stood out without being over the top. Fit great!

Perfect dress for a winter wedding
This was my first RTR purchase and I couldn't have been happier! The length would normally be a little long for my liking, but because this was a winter wedding, I threw on some tights with it and it worked perfectly. I probably could have gotten away with wearing the 2 because the top part was real tight on me, but not restrictive enough to wear the larger size. It also hid my beer-drinking belly all night ;) The back cutout was adorable as well. I got several compliments throughout the night!

YES
This is my favorite dress I've ever rented. First I wore it for a rehearsal dinner, and a month later I rented it again for a wedding. Very comfortable and love the thick fabric in the cold weather, but was super easy to move around in and no need to wear a bra! PERFECTION

fitted in the bust and waist area
i tried to get a backup size (8) but only a 6 was avail. i am top heavy and the bust area was so tight, i couldn't breathe; the top portion of the dress looked uncomfortable to wear to me and my friends. there was no stretch in the waist and it is not forgiving. other than the dress being tight, i think if i was able to size up, it would have been perfect! the fabric and color shows well in pictures and the dress can be worn casually with booties and a leather jacket or fancied up with strappy heals and accessories. fun to wear and great for outings and occasions.

Super cute fit, gorgeous color. This one is a winner!
Wore this to a benefit/banquet and felt great in it. It could be great for just a fun night out or date, or can easily be dressed up for cocktail attire. It was a big snug across the chest, but not a deal breaker and I was sit able to wear a strapless bra. Good length on my 5'8" frame. Color really pops... would consider renting this one again.

Perfect for winter weddings!
Im really short, and the 0 was just a tad snug and a little longer than I prefer, but the 2 was too large in the straps. The dress is thick enough to pull in a slight tummy, but still pretty comfortable. I got lots of compliments and the color was great in photos.

Pretty color
The color and fabric was nice and comfortable. The neckline was a little weird and came up high and sat on my collarbones which bothered me. It was also pretty long- longer than I expected. I am 5'5" and with heels on it still went to my knees. Would be a great holiday party dress.

I wore this to a fall wedding in NC.
This dress was absolutely perfect for my event. The fit was true to size and very flattering - snug on top but not too constricting. The brocade fabric had a nice weight to it, length was great and the color was beautiful - not as shiny as I feared but still stood out. Totally comfortable and danced all night in this dress. This was my first time renting with RTR, and I was really happy with the experience!

Had to exchange!
I got this dress for a wedding and ended up exchanging it. It fit great but the front pleats made me look pregnant. I am petite so I don't know if that is why it had that effect but I just couldn't wear it!

Best rental to date!
Had rented this originally for a wedding. Unfortunately it didn't arrive on time, but my husband loved it so much I rented it again the following week for a work event. Fits true to size and makes your waist look tiny! Wore a longline strapless bra so no straps were showing. Seriously best rental yet! I wish I could purchase it!

Fun party dress for fall wedding
I wore this to an estate wedding in September. The top was a little snug on me, but I otherwise loved the fit and the flare. It shimmered but was not too sparkly. Would definitely rent this again!

Wedding Guest!
Ordered 2 and 4...wore the 2! This fit true to size. The material was thick, but I wore it to an outside wedding, in Texas, in August, and it was not too hot! It was comfortable and did not squeeze or hug in any of the wrong places! Cute and fun!

The dress of course
At first I was hesitant about renting the dress, however, I decided to give it a go and it really was a great choice! Since this was not a formal party I did not feel the need to be too dressed up, but this dress still made me feel soo dressy and it pictures FABULOUSLY!!!! It has an amazing shine in photos I was really pleased.

Perfect for a night wedding
I am absolutely in love with this dress. The colors are amazing and I got many compliments on it. I didn't have to worry about if it was too short. I usually am a size 6 but it was very tight in the chest so I wore the 8.

Great time with friends and looking good
I ordered sizes 12 and 10 as I usually fit into either depending on the cut. The 12 fit nicely but a bit snug. I know I have put on a few pounds so the fit is probably spot on. I was worried the snug fit would feel worse after eating, but that didn't happen. The dress was comfortable all night, which is much more than I can say about my shoes.

Rented this dress for a wedding and received lots of compliments!
I rented this dress for our friends' vintage garden themed wedding and loved it. The 8 fit like a glove and I was able to get away with wearing a strapless bra without it showing. One of the bridesmaids in the party even came up to me and told me that they bridesmaids were watching the guests come into the ceremony space and everyone had commented on home much they loved my dress. Would definitely rent again!

I got this dress as a backup and I loved it more than the original that I had selected! Fit very well in all areas. I was also able to wear a strapless bra, making it a comfortable selection all night.

Felt very confident. MANY compliments.
This dress is very flattering. I am 5'9" 140 lbs. I could have taken a size 4 to make the waist more fitted, but I think the top would have been too tight. Belted it to cinch the waist & it was perfect. Very comfortable to wear all evening to a wedding. Got tons of compliments!

Very flattering dress
This dress was a solid choice for a summer wedding and really stood out from all the bright dresses everyone else wore. It doesn't look like much on the hanger, but it fits well and I got a lot of compliments on it. The top probably runs a little on the small side - I'm not very busty so it worked well for me. I wore a stick-on bra with it due to the back, which worked great, and wore basically the same shoes as the model. Overall it was a great experience, I recommend this dress!

First RTR Rental
This dress fit pretty true to size. The 6 fit like a glove, but I went with the 8, because there really wasn't too much difference except for in the bust area, and I felt more comfortable with the extra room. The blue is a very pretty, shiny color and looks much prettier in person than online. Got tons of compliments, and dress was very comfortable, which is important to me! I'm not usually big on halter necklines, but this one was just enough to not make me feel like a sausage-loved this dress!

Fun, flirty- a nice change from just another LBD
This dress was so fun! I loved the shine of the blue, and it looked really beautiful for a late-winter holiday party. So often, winter dresses are always just LBDs, so it was fun to mix that up. I wore this dress with black tights and black booties, and got so many compliments! It is a bit tight in the ribcage/bust, which caused some rubbing under my armpits, but it wasn't enough to be a problem. I really loved this dress- wish I owned it!

Pretty
Dress photographs beautifully - color really shows up. I ordered I size up bc most people recommended it and it was comfortable but a little loose. I have a long torso and the dress is pretty high waisted so it was nowhere near my actual waist but nobody pointed it out. It was a very forgiving dress- ate 8 gorditas with the greatest of ease....which lets be honest...is the main thing I look for in a dress :)

It was comfortable for the most part.
It could be that I've gained weight but the 10 wouldn't zip up and the 12 was so snug I didn't wear a bra. I like the style but it felt like it ran small. Pretty dress and pretty comfortable :)

PERFECT fit! Even worked with a bra!
I wore this dress to my sorority formal. I had initially ordered a different dress but RTR had sent the wrong size. A customer service rep stayed on the phone with me until we found another dress that I loved and they overnighted it for free! This dress fit like a glove and looked AMAZING! It also worked with a strapless bra even with the exposed back which is my personal favorite part! Would recommend a million times over!

Great dress
This shiny, textured dress is a great take on the LBD. Rented for a March wedding that started at 5:00, it made the transition from afternoon to nighttime. It's a little longer on me than on the model and I found the neckline very flattering. Not about the dress, but I want to add: I love the new shipping/garment bags RtR is using! Great for traveling, the bag protects the dresses while the inside pockets help keep all my rented accessories in one place too. Thumbs up.

This dress was amazing! I felt amazing and received so many compliments all night.
I usually wear an 8 and based on the reviews went with an 8 and 10. Ended up wearing the 10 because I have a wider back. This dress fit perfectly in my pear shaped body. I am 5'7 and weight 158. I will definitely rent this dress again!

Was a great comfortable flattering dress for a work cocktail party.
Fit great...fitted bodice and went out enough at the waist to hide my problem area (butt and thighs). Loved the cut of the neck, accentuated my arms and shoulders. Received a lot of compliments. Loved the color and pattern as well.
