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

Great holiday dress!
I wore this dress for a fundraiser holiday party with my actors networking group. I loved this dress! Looks more purple in person, but appears blue in photos. Very comfortable and flattering. I could wear a strapless bra with it. Loved the cut-out detail in the back. Highly recommended!

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.

I am a big Eva Franco fan. This dress is so fun and shiny. Great party dress.
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.

Birthday girl
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.

Perfect sparkle for this hostess with the mostest on NYE
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.

Wonderful dress
I actually rented another dress that didn't end up fitting and this was sent as a replacement, but I was so happy with it! It fit perfectly and looked great on. The blue color really does pop on the black and the cut is very flattering. Got compliments on it all night!

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!

Great Dress!
I needed a dress to go to a Communion and rented a different dress. Unfortunately that dress was too tight around the hip area and the AMAZING people at RTR sent me this dress the very next day just in time for my event. This dress is gorgeous! The color is so vibrant and the fit is very comfortable. If you are someone who is small on top and bigger on the bottom, this dress is perfect. It accentuates your waist without making your bottom portion look too big. I regret not taking a picture of the back. Im a RTR fan for life!

Beautiful colors and great fit
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.

It was very comfortable. Was distracted by the fit, so i could move around and socialize...
This dress is made for someone with a smaller upper frame and great if you have hips. I am 5'8/135lbs/34A. I should have ordered the 4, but that was my mistake. It was incredibly comfortable. Because it cuts at the waste instead of the hips, you have plenty of room to move around in. Dress is great for sitting and eating and dancing. It rose about 2 inches above the knee. I would have preferred it to be another 2 inches shorter for it to feel fun and flirty without being too sexy. Not sure how it would look on shorter women without massive heels.

Perfect dress for a night out
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.

Great fitting dress that was perfect for a New Years Eve party! Would love to rent it again.
Fits true to size; only thing I'd say is that the high neck line was fine for me but be harder on different body types.

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

It fit true to size, the length was great, and I had no issues with a bra (which is sometimes a concern with irregular strapped things).

Dazzling blue stunner
I wore this to a wedding and it got so many compliments. The blue color really shines in photos with the metallic accents, which pick up light really well. I felt comfortable in it all night. No spanx or bra needed, which definitely added to the comfort level! You can tell the material is high quality.

Date night in NYC
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.

Too shiny, and ran big
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.

I wore this for a wedding rehearsal dinner and received many compliments. The color is vivid blue.
The dress fits tightly around the bodice but is comfortable. The skirt seems too wide on the hanger, but I pressed it and it was perfect when wearing it. It thought I would feel cold since the arms and back were bare, but the heaviness of the fabric made the dress feel warm. The color is a gorgeous, metallic blue that draws attention, but is not gaudy. The length also seemed like it would be long, but I wore 3 inch heels and it hit right above my knee, which is what I wanted. This is a perfect little dress for any occasion.

Cute dress for formal event
Dress stood out against the sea of standard LBDs. The blue was shinier than I expected, but it wasn't bad. Much different than something I'd pick out off the rack. That's the fun of RTR. I should have sized down for my second dress instead of up. It was much too big in top and I had to double pad my strapless bra to try to fill it up. That said, this is a good choice for a pear as the skirt has plenty of room for hips, just keep in mind if you are small in the bust and torso, you may want to size down. Length was just above my knees - ideal for me. Overall it was a good choice.

Fit like a glove!
I ordered a size 4 and 2; I ended up wearing the 2 and it fit perfectly! The blue in the dress was a nice 'pop' and under lights, transformed from a vibrant blue to hints of purple. I highly recommend this dress!!

Better for C cup gal.
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.

Everyone loved my dress!
I was kind of nervous renting the dress without trying it on because dresses always fit me snug on the hips and way too loose and big on the bust, but this dress fit like a glove. It was as if the dress was made for me and it made me look even skinnier.

Fun evening cocktail dress!
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!
