My favorite dress ever!

I actually had rented another dress for a rehearsal dinner, but had to select a last minute replacement, as my original choice had come back damaged to rent the runway prior to my rental. Did I ever luck out! This dress was absolutely amazing, fit perfectly, and was so fabulously unique and its print. I received compliments all night. The neoprene fabric was incredibly comfortable, and I was able to wear a regular bra-- no messing with uncomfortable strapless numbers. I would rent this again and again. This dress was so much fun to wear.

A great statement dress!

I was in charge of the homecoming dance for the school I work at, and I rented this to go with our 'enchantment under the sea' theme. Unfortunately, I was so busy all night That I completely forgot to take any pictures :( Very form fitting up top, and rather unforgiving if you have hips. Be prepared to wear spanks or some sort of control garment to smooth everything out. But I received a ton of compliments and really enjoyed wearing this dress! It also seemed a little more purple in person. I had thought it looked like a mixture of blues in the picture.

The colors of the dress were pretty, but the neck area was big and the fabric was thick.

Beautiful, comfy, classic dress

I really liked this dress and loved the way it fit. Other than being a little puffy in the shoulder area, the fit in the chest, waist, and hips were great. I added a belt to further cinch the waist, and definitely preferred this look. I wore it to church on NYD, while holding 2 very squirmy kids. I felt great in it!!

Classy and interesting dress in a sea of black.

I never thought I'd rely on RTR for a funeral, but it was perfect. When my grandmother died, I wanted something special for her service but had no desire to shop or to ever see the dress again afterwards, so RTR was great. I was able to order on Monday and get it on Wednesday. I ordered a 2 based on the reviews, knowing that I wanted it fitted well on my small waist, but knowing that the flared skirt would still fit my hips. It is a beautiful, artful patten that was classy and appropriate for a funeral without being boring black.

Such a flattering fit and material. And the print was my favorite part.

The fit and flare is super flattering, as is the neoprene material. I'm typically a 4 but in this I was a 2 so I'd recommend sizing down for your back up.

This dress made me feel like a classy princess!

Beautiful dress! I wore it to my birthday party on a Brooklyn rooftop. It definitely runs a little big - I normally wear a 2-4 but this time I did the 0. A little tight on top but the skirt was gorgeous and flares perfectly! So pretty AND comfortable!

Pretty dress but the size did not work for me.

I really liked the dress but I ordered a 6 (I am usually between 4 and 6) and it didn't fit. It was too large around the waist and chest area. I expected the dress to be dressier but I didn't feel it would work for a formal wedding due to the material. I think it would be great for a night our or a more casual event

A fundraiser that I co-organize.

The dress was beautiful, I loved the material! I am usually a size 6 but in this dress I should've worn a 4 I think. Even though this was my back up dress I loved it and got so many compliments.

Cocktail Party

Fabulous dress, heavy material yet still felt light. I wore the 4 and it fit well but could have easily worn the 2, as the skirt is quite full and I'm pretty small on top. Skirt is mid-thigh and I wore it with tights. Would def rent again.

Festive, fun, and not too dressy

Lovely print and colors, flattering line (fitted at waist with a swirly flare to the skirt), comfortable neoprene fabric. Looked great and a little unusual. Got plenty of compliments and enjoyed wearing this dress. It was just right for the occasion-- a festive party dress but not too dressy or flashy.

Gorgeous dress, but runs a little big on top.

I have a problem with this since I have a tiny chest, but even in a zero this dress I found to be a little too loose through the top. Were it just a couple inches smaller through the waist it would have been WOW. If you are small chested, definitely go down a size.

A stunner back up dress!

Although I didn't end up wearing this dress, it was my backup, I still tried it on for fun and I would totally rent this dress for another event. The material is on the heavier side but the flattering cut makes it worth it, and you wouldn't have to wear shape wear which is always a plus.

Loved the fabric and the print. It runs slightly smaller than normal.

Smaller arm hole than expected. And short, needed to wear tights underneath. Other than those two things- great1

...

I ordered my usual size 2, and one size down, however I think a 4 would of been perfect for me. The waist is tiny, and got uncomfortable after a while in the 2. If you have a small waist, you might be fine in your usual size, but please know that there is not much give or stretch at the waist line. Everything else is very flattering and comfortable. It is a very classy dressy, perfect for a wedding.

Beautiful dress, but top too fitted for me.

I'm a size 12 in most clothes but have a larger bust. The material of this dress was very stretchy, so the dress still zipped, but it was so tight that it created a uniboob and back rolls that I don't normally have around my bra, which was not flattering at all. The waist fit well, and the sleeves and flared skirt were adorable. I also really liked the material. For my chest, I think I needed one size bigger, but the rest of the dress was really beautiful.

Vegas with work colleagues -- the fine line between appropriate and not so much :)

I rented this dress for a trip to Vegas with work colleagues. First, the fabric of this dress is awesome. I loved the colors and the style but the fabric really amps this up. The downside? It didn't hit me quite right at the waist and the result was that it was very tight. I even worse spanx underneath and it just didn't look the way I wanted it to look. It was also on the short side to be worn without tights (if I had been in Vegas with friends this would not have been an issue but since I was there with work colleagues, it was a bit of an issue).

Fun and Unique

I sized up and I'm so glad I did! I typically wear an 8/10, but would have had trouble in the bust area in a smaller size. The material is super flattering and hid my least favorite area (midsection). I had so many compliments on the unique pattern.

The fit was good, except maybe a little large at the bust. I had to wear my most padded bra to fill it in. But overall a great dress!

Perfect fit, creates great shape!

True to size fit. The dress is neoprene, which is great because it doesn't wrinkle. The cap sleeves aren't tight which I was worried about because I hate small caps sleeves that make your arms look bigger! I love how the dress keeps it's form. It looked lovely on the dance floor. A+

Fun dress

This was my backup dress for a work dinner that I had. I wasn't sure if it would be too funky for a work event, but the design was more subdued in person. I ended up going with my first dress because the bottom portion flared out a little too much and I wanted to be able to wear a blazer over the dress but it didn't look good with a blazer at all. I would rent it again for another event, because it fit well and it was a fun dress to wear.

I'd picked this dress because of the gorgeous pattern and was pleased to discover it was incredibly comfortable as well! Great swish to the skirt, good length and fit well. Would recommend.
