This dress is smokin', especially if you are someone who likes to show off your shoulders.

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
This dress is VERY fitted on the top. I am small-breasted, but I am really pretty muscular back and chest-wise. I normally wear a 6, but I wore the 8. That means longer and fuller on the bottom, but I did have to struggle a bit to zip up at my lats. Regardless, the end result was "stunning" according to people who commented on my dress. I don't want to give it back!! I'm trying to get pics off of Facebook to share here...

Loved the print of this dress, but it was way too long on me ; ( wish it had been a little bit shorter so I could have worn it to our holiday party.

Perfect fit. This dress requires a strapless bra. No worries about it showing in the back, though, the opening is plenty high to cover. This dress looks in person, just like on the site. Would highly recommend this garment.

It was the perfect color. Jewel-toned with a classic and sexy neckline.

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I usually wear a 10, but am a little closer to a 10.5 at this time. The 12 worked out just fine. Due to the larger size it ran a little big in the area just above my chest, in that it bloused out a bit at the arm openings. I added a black sleeveless camisole underneath and it did the trick. If it would have had pockets, I'd have worn it everyday of my rental.

Birthday girl

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I rented this for a dinner party I hosted for my birthday. Bottom line is I felt special and got tons of compliments. The top is very fitted and looked great. The skirt is bulky because of the thickness of the material and did not lay as flat as it appears to on the model. I really liked the overall look and that the dress is fully lined. I agree with other reviewers who have said the color is more purple. It is a very rich color and looks beautiful.

I am so sad that I didn't think to get one photo of myself in this dress but that always happens when i entertain. This dress was so fun and comfortable. On the freezing New York night I paired it with opaque black tights and it was perfect.

I rented this for a friend's wedding. It's not a style I would normally be attracted to, but I chose it because I thought it would "go" with the art deco theme of the wedding. I'm so glad that I did! It fit a bit tightly across the chest, but I'm at my "maximum density" right now. It's very flattering, especially for an apple-shaped body like me. It also photographs beautifully.

Gorgeous fabric and stunning dress

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I rented another dress that did not work out and RTR sent me this one in time for my event. LOVE RTR customer service. It is a beautiful dress and fabric. Skirt is a bit longer than I normally wear and I am 5'8" so if you are short this dress will be longer than the pics online. You will need a strapless bra. It is a dress that stands out and got compliments all night. Gave it 4 out 5 because of the length.

Customer service was amazing. Arrived on time, the sizes were too big so they overnighted another.

The dress fit like a glove and was so unique with the neckline! I wore it to my first Make-A-Wish Foundation Wish Ball, so the colors could not have been more perfect. I received so many compliments and the local tv crew covering the event said I was best dressed, hands down. The material was extremely comfortable and more sparkly in person than in some pictures. Others have commented on the neckline but it didn't bother me at all. Wonderful pick and the dress made the night even more special!

I enjoyed wearing this dress, to a wine tasting at our club and a dance party. I got lots of compliments both times, and my husband liked it so much the first time I rented it, I had to rent it twice! The cut of the dress shows off your shoulders and is sexy but not too revealing. It is also so comfortable to wear and great to dance in.

I rented this dress for my mom to wear and she absolutely loved it! The size 6 fit her perfectly, which is consistent with what she usually wears. At 5'4", this dress was long enough to be appropriate for an dinner party, but not so long that it overwhelmed her.

I wore this dress to a wedding that I flew to (and had it shipped there).

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I rented two dresses and thought I'd be wearing the other, longer dress to my friend's wedding, however that dress turned out to be a little *too* long for comfort (and dancing!). I was very glad I got this dress as my backup option and wasn't sure about it based on its picture. The picture doesn't do it justice - it's super cute and kind of fun and flirty without being immodest. It was a great dress for a night of dancing and was also long enough that I felt comfortable sitting down (it's not one of those short dresses where half of your behind is on the chair when you sit down). It fit snugly which I liked, but I wouldn't recommend it for ladies with large busts because there's not much extra room in the front (I thought it flattened my front ever so slightly, but it still looked awesome). I'm usually between a 0 and a 4 (differing with brands) and I got the 4 and felt it was nicely snug (I was concerned it might be big), Worth checking out!

I really enjoyed wearing this dress- it is a beautiful vibrant blue color. The neckline is a bit awkward but the length is perfect for a formal occasion when you don't want to be too risque. I wish I could have kept it!

Date night in NYC

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
This dress fit pretty well. It'd likely fit better on someone with a larger chest (the back would lay flatter), but with a good bra it was still beautiful and my husband loved it. So much so he's looking to buy it for me! It gave me killer curves and showed off my sculpted shoulders and little waist. It was great for a night out on the town. I was even complimented walking down 5th Avenue in NYC.

Fit wonderfully. Only con was that it was very short while I was sitting (meaning that most of the back of my thighs was on the church pew). Looked amazing, though - compliments all night long!

Too shiny, and ran big

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
Sadly, this was my first RTR failure. The dress runs big and neither size I ordered fit me so I had to wear something out of my own closet. Also, the blue in the print of the dress is extremely shiny. I don't think this is the kind of dress women over 18 would be complementing me on.

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size

I rented this dress as my back up and got a size larger thinking that it would be tight after reading some of the reviews. It was awkwardly huge. I should have rented my normal size. Longer than I expected too. I'm 5'9" and it was to my knees.

Cute dress in an interesting fabric. I got this in size 6, but a 4 probably would have been better (alas, not available). My petite B cups didn't fill out the chest, so I opted to wear the other dress I rented.

A little longer then expected

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I was expecting this dress to be a little bit shorter but the longer length made me feel a little dowdy...I decided not to wear the dress to the wedding I had been planning on wearing it to because it was also a little tight in the back/chest area. RTR was awesome and gave me a credit since the dress wasn't what I was hoping for. Will definitely rent again soon!

Fun evening cocktail dress!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I wore this to a cocktail-style rehearsal dinner, and it was perfect for that - the color is a gorgeous shiny navy with black, and shines nicely at night. The cut is different and I got a lot of compliments on the style overall; it fell to mid-thigh. I usually wear a 6, and this fit a little snugly though not uncomfortable. Could get away without a bra but I wore a strapless one and it didn't show at all in the back. Really enjoyed wearing this!

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.
