I received so many compliments!

This was such a special and unique skirt. It was a show stopper. I didn't notice the front was open but it added a fun detail

I wore this for a day walking around Philly! Super comfortable and made me look stylish and casual.

Fit perfectly, but if you have any stomach at all that might be visible. Loved pairing it with a black t-shirt!

Perfect

Perfect spring skirt to dress up or dress down! True to size, would totally rent again! I like that it has a high/low thing going on with the split in the front!

Fun and flirty skirt, but it was a bit long. I rolled it up at the tip and it was perfect with heels.

I wore it to wedding dance class with my fiancée and then went out to dinner. It was so romantic

Ran a little small, I liked the 6 and am usually at 4. Very flirty and fun, I wore with a crop top.

Simple and beautiful

I paired this skirt with an olive green tank and it was just so cute. There is one slit and it is in the middle, starting after the last button. Not a lot of stretch. I wore it to work and everyone loved it!

Very comfortable and effortlessly stylish

Love the skirt, easy piece to add to any closet, can be worn many different ways! So comfortable, cute paired with flats and a casual top! Tight around waist and stomach, so wise not to eat thanksgiving dinner in it!

Pretty fun dress!!!

I did not end up wearing this because it was pretty scandalous (in a good way) but not appropriate for the rehearsal dinner I was going to. I would love to rent this again when I have the right event. It is very form fitting so either size up or be prepared with some spanx. Great for salsa dancing!!

Complements all day

I can't begging to say how happy I was with this rental. The colors were amazing the texture was so rich. In this skirt fit pretty exact with my bigger bottom. Beware this dress does have a high slit in the middle but that makes this skirt so much more sexy. Loved it!

Perfect for a causal party!

This definitely ran small I usually wear a six and I wore an eight that fit but could have fit a little better! It looked super cute though for a chilly spring evening!

Gorgeous skirt! I got so many compliments!

Wore this to a concert with a navy crop top I also rented from RTR. I got so many compliments on this outfit! I wore it with a statement necklace. Beware it is tight on the tummy but nothing that some good shape wear can't fix ;)

Amazing skirt

I'm considering buying this! It's amazing. The slit in the middle goes higher than I thought, so I couldn't wear it to work, but it was sexy for date night with my husband! I rented a bigger size so it would be comfortable and flowy. Highly recommend.

Wore for my birthday dinner out with my husband- tons of compliments!

Runs slightly small, I wore the 6 over the size 4 for a more comfortable fit on the hips while sitting and better length. The 4 was slightly too short with wedges (I'm 5'7"). The color is vibrant and gorgeous- fitted at the top with gorgeous movement at the bottom. There is also a large slit in the front up to the buttons. I immediately went online and bought this skirt!

cute but fit was only so so

I typically wear a size 6 or 8 on the bottom. The six was not available and some of the reviews mentioned that the skirt had little give so I figured it would work out. I ended up wearing it as part of a more casual outfit and it was fine. The print is beautiful and I love the button details down the front. Perhaps the six would have been a perfect fit for a more formal outfit – would definitely consider renting again in a size down.

Didn't want to return this!

This skirt is so beautiful in person! I rented it for an anniversary party (worn with a black silk top) but I loved it so much I had to wear it again. Loved it styled with a chambray top and sandals. I thought it ran a little small as I'm 5'3" and it was the perfect length on me with flats. Also the skirt has no give up top but the 2 fit perfectly. There was a little zipper issue with the skirt I got but it didn't cause a problem. Rent this! I may still have to purchase this skirt.

Amazing skirt!

I rented this for my Mexican fiesta themed bridal shower. Although I went with another outfit that was all white (you're only a bride once, right?), I am renting this again for my bachelorette party and honeymoon! The fabric is gorgeous and the fit is flattering. The slit gives it a little something extra.

Great summer skirt!

For well, though yes does hug you so if you're hiding your tummy, you might want to size up. I found the high waist line and print to camouflage my "wine belly". It opens some in the front and is very comfortable. A summery skirt with a little sex appeal. Great piece.

Fun skirt!

I wore this to a rehearsal dinner and ordered it as my second style for my main dress, so I wasn't given a back up size. I ordered the 10 because a lot of reviews suggested it, but I wish I didn't. It is definitely cut tight in the hips/stomach but because I sized up it wasn't snug on my waist and that looked strange. I tried to wear it as shown with a tight black tank, but it didn't look right with the loose waist. Luckily I had the white blouse tank that worked perfectly with it. It is such a fun skirt! I got tons of compliments!

Great casual weekend skirt:)

Very cute skirt! Wore with a crop top and flat sandals. It hit just at my belly button and lengthwise just brushed above my feet. I do think it runs small. I'm usually a 4 and wore a 6 in this. Ordered a 6 after reading reviews on it running small

Flowy fun with a flare!

Wore this for a Bridal party early August and I loved it! It isn't stretchy but it fit really well and it was long enough to wear with heals although I went with flat sandals. I received lots of compliments and it felt really flowy and fun! It has a little flare that gets a lot of attention. I wore it with a different print cropped shirt because I wanted to mix it up and make it interesting. Would love to keep this skirt. It really is gorgeous!

The skirt fit beautifully. I'm 5'2" - it was a little long but nothing too onerous. It was perfect for an outdoor wine tour.

Gorgeous print but runs small.

The print of this skirt was super pretty, and I loved the slit up the front. However it was a tighter fit in the waist area than I am used to for maxi skirts. I would definitely size up, but still a great rental for a more casual affair.

Ideally I would have liked to rent a size 2, but it wasn't available. I ordered the 0 and 4. They only sent the 4 because the 0 was apparently unavailable to. I was SO disappointed. I almost always wear a two or 0 so I was sure the 4 would be too big. Although it was I pinned it in a few places and made it work. I'm only 5' and this made me look tall with 4" heels. Would love to rent again in a smaller size

Pretty pattern, delicate details, flattering fit!

I loved the little buttons down the front and the flowing fabric. The colors are really bright and pretty. Fit great, just a little long, but I'm very short. Great for many occasions!

Such a great skirt!

Wore this to a musical and nice dinner out. It was super comfortable but also really cute. Husband really liked that it was fitted in the butt area and had a sexy front slit, but was still formal enough to wear to the theatre. Paired it with a tight white tank and black cardigan and some low wedges.

Fun summer maxi- runs huge

I ordered the XS after eyeing this skirt for a while. Truthfully I am probably closer to an Xxs but hoped this skirt would work since it is high waisted. It's cute and good quality, but thicker and more mermaid shaped than it looks in pics. The waist was not nearly as fitted as I'd hoped, and although the length would have been perfect with heels, the darts were cut too wide for where they hit my body, and there was too much fabric through the hips and bottom (I tend to be more of a pancake in that area unfortunately!!). There is no stretch to the fabric, so it sort of just hung there with excess and didn't look right. It would be a great skirt on someone else!!!

Vibrant color, odd fit.

I'm 5'8" and an 8R or small 10. have a rounder midsection. There wasn't a problem buttoning the high waist but it definitely accentuates that and leaves an odd silhouette. I could have worn it with a longer sweater but I didn't want the baggy look. Anyhow, the color is so vibrant, as others said. The material is also thick and beautiful. I just couldn't wear this time. I can't usually wear high waisted jeans, so I suppose that is a good test. I

I thought the length was great, I'm 5'3" but I also love my heels so it worked well together. A little on the tight side but I may have had to many chicken wings the night before. Loved it so much that I am trying to find it to buy!!

Mothers Day outfit!

Wore this on Mother's Day to play mini golf with my daughters and fiancé. Then went to dinner after. It was perfect! Not too dressy for the afternoon but nice enough to wear to dinner afterwards and made me feel pretty! Super comfortable and fit perfectly. I'm 5'7" and it wasn't too short which I was worried about. The fabric was a little heavier than expected but I was glad because it was windy! I love it so much I wanted to keep it! This was my first order from RTR and I loved it!

This skirt fit great. I'm 5'2 & had to wear heels with it. It made for a great casual work outfit paired with a black top & black wedge sandals. Tons of compliments all day!
