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.

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.

Not for a long torso!
The fabric is beautiful - nice sparkle but not overly much. Really loved the fit on the upper body (I'm small busted) but the waist hit me really high since I'm long waisted... and the poofy-ish skirt flared out in a funny way because of how it hit my waist. The skirt had more flare to it than I thought from the photo, so be prepared for that. Wish this one had worked; it's a lovely dress - elegant fabric and fun design.

Gorgeous fabric and very wedding appropriate while still fun. Dress looks best with hair up.
I was worried the waist would be too tight because I had gained some weight, but the dress was actually a little too loose in this area. For reference, I had a 28" waist when I ordered this and wore the 4, which was a bit loose. I had ordered a 6 for the backup size and wished I had ordered the 2 instead, though the 2 might have been too tight in the bust.

My husband was WOWed!
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.)

Awesome dress and it fit PERFECTLY!
This was my first time using RTR and it was great!! I ordered size 4 with a backup size 6. At first, I thought from the material, i wasn't going to be comfortable. The dressed arrived at 4pm on Friday. The formal was on Saturday. I tried the 4 on and it fit perfectly, no adjustments needed. I weigh 135lbs, 5'5" and have an athletic/thin figure. The dress was comfortable the whole night as well.

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!

A bit of shine perfect for a party.
I wore a size 4 which is what I normally wear. It fit great! Wore a strapless bra since the top comes in around the neck some. It was very comfortable and just the right amount of shine for NYE.

Fantastic Dress!
Rented this dress for a wedding. Hated to send it back - got so many compliments. It was a little tight in the rib cage, but that allowed for me to wear it with no bra. I was worried that it would be too short, but it was knee length on me. The color is beautiful.

LOVED THIS DRESS!
This was my first RtR experience and I am HOOKED! The dress was gorgeous and very high quality. I received a TON of compliments and would rent this dress again! I didn't have a bra that worked, especially with the open back, so I went without. Going without a bra was fine - no issues there. The size is definitely true to size and even on my shorter frame, it was very flattering.

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.

Great dress! The sheen on the blue part really made the dress pop. I received lots of compliments!
The dress fits a smidge small so I'm glad I went a size up. Definitely size up if you have an athletic build and decent size bust like me. It's a well constructed dress, high quality dress...with a lining! I kept my jewelry simple as the blue really popped. The cut-out in the back was a great touch. I'll definitely be ordering from RTR again!

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!

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.

Comfortable and fun, yet classy!
I wore this to my friends September wedding in Baltimore! It was so comfortable and had some really cute details to it. It is subtle with the navy and black, but really popped in pictures and looked great. I paired it with a fun necklace and nude heels. I went with the size 4 since it isn't fitted on the lower half. I would definitely rent this again or even buy it!

I rented both the size 6 and 8 and ended up wearing the size 8, because I wanted a little more room in the chest area. It was super comfortable and left a lot of room for lots of food and drink. I got lots of compliments!

A million compliments!
This dress has gotten me more compliments than any other dress I have worn to work from RTR. Maybe it was because I spilled coffee on my lab coat and the dress was more visible, maybe it was the iridescence of it. Maybe it was the blue color that "brought out my eyes" according to 3 of my patients. Either way, this dress was so easy to wear, had a beautiful open back (but modest), and a perfect length for work or a party. It didn't have pockets which is me being spoiled but a lot of flare dresses do now and that's me being picky! Love this dress, will rent again for sure!!

Everyone loved the dress. I needed a Royal Blue dress for my husbands event.
The size 6 fit me, but I wanted to wear a bra and the dress to go lower than my knees, so I decided to wear the size 8 instead. It was a little big in the top, but it looked fine.

One of my Favorites!
I really enjoyed wearing this dress. It was super comfortable and really easy to wear. I wore the Size 2 because the Size 0 was not available. I think they 0 would have been perfect but the 2 was only a little roomy, which made it all the more comfortable. I would highly recommend this one.

This dress is beautifully styled, not too low in the back, and made of incredible fabric.
It is very small in the bust. I wear a small "C" cup bra, but my chest was still bound very tightly by this fabric and style which has no give to it. It also is somewhat short waisted, so sits about 1 1/2" above my natural waist. Perfect for a Petite. It truly is a lovely dress, but I think I will order the 12 next time to see if it fives me a bit more room to breathe.

LOVE THE BACK!
I rented this dress for a wedding and received a lot of great compliments, especially the fun back! The overall fit was good - I wish it had a little more give as it did get a little tight in the midsection as the night went on. The rented necklace was perfect as well. I love doing the mystery pull just before the rental comes - gives me something else to look forward to!

Perfect for a company holiday party - fancy but not too flashy!
It fit perfectly. I'm on the smaller size in terms of bust/waist and it fit perfectly on me so if you are a bit chestier, I'd recommend going up a size. The length was mid-thigh on me (6'). The material is beautiful and looks expensive. It's just enough of a sheen that it's dressy but very comfortable and not too flashy for a company party. Love this dress!

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!

I got this dress as a backup and wore it instead of my first choice. The dress is comfortable and just easy to wear! I really liked the blue pattern. It's a nice, effortless staple to fall back on.
