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!

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!

Great dress!

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.

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.

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!

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!

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!

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.

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.

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!

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!

Dress was stunning for a downtown evening wedding!

The smaller dress for tight across the neck, the size up was tight in the bust. I opted for the latter. Everywhere else it was very flattering.

First RTR experience - amazing!!

I received both the 2 and 4 in this dress - I wore the 2 mainly because the fit and flare style allows for more room skirt. The color isn't nearly as loud in person as it is in some of the reviewers photos - but still a fun take on the LBD. It has a heavier fabric, which was perfect for the December wedding I went to in Florida. As for my entire RTR experience - amazing! I received a box of Godiva chocolates and a note just because their email server mis-sent an email saying my backup size in this dress wasn't available (which it was!) definitely a customer for life!

Loved this dress! Very comfortable and didn't have to wear a bra because it was so fitted at the top. Would recommend for any fun event but the fabric was a little heavy for a warm day.

Multifunctional and Fun

I've rented this dress twice now - first for a formal event and second for a Cali winter wedding. It's so flattering and has a unique neck line. The blue is vibrant and the dress has a sheen to it that's nice and not over the top shimmery. I got tons of compliments and what you can't see from the front of the photo is the cutout in the upper back of the dress. I wore a strapless and was super comfortable. Highly recommend!

Very flattering fit, I loved this dress!

Was a great fit, I had to go with the bigger size because my ribs are pretty wide and the fitted part of the dress was definitely snug! Great length though, I'm short but it was just above the knee, I was comfortable dancing all night in it.

Fit like a glove. Flattering waistline.

Great fit. Easy to dance in this. Beautiful in person. I do have athletic shoulders and arms and the halter type straps were not flattering but were easily hidden with long hair. I would not choose this dress if I had short hair and broad/athletic shoulders. Anyway, I got lots of compliments on this dress!

Great dress for a March wedding- plus it photographs really well!

This dress fit perfectly- nipped in at the waist, full skirt, not constricting in any way. I was able to sit through the ceremony, eat comfortably, plus it was a great dress to dance in! Only con is you have to wear a strapless bra, but in the grand scheme of things that's barely an issue.

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!

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 :)

Beautiful shimmer, flattering cut.

I ended up wearing the 2 (didn't even try on the 0, and when I went to send it back, I noticed one of the buttons on the upper back was missing so I was glad I didn't need that one...) and it fit great in the chest/midsection. Perfect length, nice amount of shimmer for winter. Another dress I'd love to own!

Fun dress to wear to a wedding!

This dress was great! It was light and thin but still a little structured. The front/ neck area felt a little tight at times while the back felt a little loose, but it wasn't a big deal at all. It was overall very flattering and fun to wear.

Gorgeous dress, wound rent again in a heartbeat!

Loved this dress, and it was a perfect first RTR experience! Fun and flirty without being over the top. Fabric, cut, and lining give it an elegance perfect for evening events. Not as bright as the photo suggests, which I think is a good thing and makes it more versatile. I wore it to a fall evening wedding that included a Catholic mass, and it was perfectly appropriate, while being fun for the reception. Looks particularly great with a big necklace. Per other reviews, the zipper did stick a little but not too badly. The material is thicker and structured, so I'd order your second size a size up just to be safe. Enjoy this dress ... It's hard not to!

Wore to a nautical themed charity event. Lots of complements. Comfortable the entire night! I would buy this dress if it was offered! (The zipper caught a little on the seam when trying to zip it up myself, but easy with another person's help.)

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!
