Beautiful sparkling blue dress!
I wore this to my work's Christmas holiday party. It was perfect for the event and I received a ton of compliments. The blue color really shines through with the amount of sparkle. Normally I wear a size 2, and it was too small so I sized up to the 4, which fit perfectly around the waist. The dress has two buttons at the top of the back. This part gaped down quite a bit, but I wore my hair down so that covered it up. Otherwise the dress was perfect!

Perfect holiday dress
Not too much sparkle but enough to be fun. Conservative length and neckline so good for work function. No Spanx required!

Perfect for a Long Island wedding!
I found the top of this dress to fit a bit tight, leading me to wear the 12 instead of 10. Other than that, the dress was perfect to dance all night long in.

Pointy in the chest
This dress was cute in pictures, and i got compliments, BUT i felt like the chest was constructed a little too sharply if you know what I mean. I wear a 32-D bra so filling out a dress isn't normally an issue if it fits elsewhere, but this one was large in the chest compared to hips, etc.

Size down if you have room to spare in the chest area
I ended up wearing the 6 not the 8. I have a small chest so it worked out. If you have a larger chest size up. The 8 fit but it wasn't as tailored feeling as the size 6. My husband said the 8 looked better but when ya just don't feel it...AND he wasn't going with me to this event ... wink wink. This dress held the chest in which helped hold my tape laced bra inserts(chicken cutlets) in place all night. No need for a bra, the material is nice a heavy(but not in a hot and thick way). The color is AMAZING, pics do no justice. Overall: Fun & Flirty for all ages. oh and I love the neckline.

San Diego wedding dress
The best part of this dress is that it is SO versatile! I wore it to a wedding where the dress code wasn't very clear, and it worked perfectly. The fabric definitely has a shimmer to it, so it could easily be dressed up to "cocktail" level with sparkly jewelry, but it also fit in perfectly at the more casual evening oceanside wedding I attended. My normal size 4 was unavailable, so I rented a 2 and a 6 - the 2 fit, but just barely! I am an hourglass shape, heavier on the bottom with a very small waist, so I loved that this dress hugged my top and waist and flared out to hide my lower half. The arm holes were a little small and the top was a tiny bit tight, but I was still able to dance and move comfortably. If you're bigger on top or straight up and down, I would probably recommend sizing up for your backup. I loved this and would definitely rent it again!

How great I felt about myself
I was pleasantly surprised that I fit in the 10!! Although, once it was on, the dress made my chest look so tiny!! I'm a 36C and my boobs literally looked like they were B, possibly even a cup! I still Loved the dress, but if you're looking to accentuate your boobs, this is not the dress for you. Furthermore, if you're going to be doing a lot of sitting, I wouldn't recommend this because it puffs up in the front and looks silly. I seriosuly did love the dress- although it may seem I didn't- I'm Just trying to give you a better idea of what to Expect :)

I wore this to a fraternity reunion function
I loved this dress--it's possibly my favorite RTR dress to date. It was comfortable and flattering and just different enough to stand out in the crowd without standing out in the crowd (if that makes sense). There were all ages at this party--70+ year olds to current college students and I felt as though my dress was appropriately fun yet respectful and age-appropriate for me. I wore a NuBra with it but could have probably gone bra-less. I also loved that I didn't have to wear special underwear or Spanx. I paired the dress with nude strappy heels and black earrings. Based on the reviews, I ordered the size 6 and 8, thinking that the 8 might be better (because many said that it ran small) but the 6 was better and I would've even liked to have tried a 4, just in case. Overall though, it was perfect. The service of RTR continues to impress me--I've never had so much as a "hiccup" in my orders and I recommend it to everyone who'll listen.

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.

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!

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!

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!

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!
