Beautiful colors!
The dress is form fitting. However, all of the twists of fabric on the front of the dress hide and tummy issues. I just had a baby five weeks before wearing this dress and from the front I don't think you could tell. The dress was also super comfortable for a Vegas bachelorette party!

Fun, colorful & comfortable dress!
This dress was a fabulous choice for a Florida wedding! The dress is form-fitting without being too tight. The colors were bright and vibrant, the comfort was a plus.

Loved the colors of this dress
I wore this for my baby shower. I am 33 weeks pregnant in this picture. It is next to impossible to find a non grandma style dress when pregnant. Not to mention that your section is very limited. On my search I came across this dress. After reading just about every review I noticed it was a common opinion that it was a little baggy in the stomach area. Also that it was very very stretchy. I was definitely nervous , but took the risk. I am very happy I did because I loved this dress. I am 5'9 and 130 lb pre-pregnancy weight. I have a lean athletic build and normally wear a 2-4 dress size. I have gained 21 lb at 33 weeks, but am considered my the public that I carry small as everyone thinks I am never that far along. I loved how it was gathered all over the dress. Helped in the fact that my once lean body now is not very proportional. It smoothed everything out and looked really nice. I received complements the whole day. I ordered a 6 due to the weight gain and it fit great.

Amazing look!
This dress turned heads when I walked into the room. It fit well and is true to size. I am full figured which worried me because there weren't any other reviews from divas my size. Glad I took the chance... Wish I could own it.

It was so easy to rent and return the dress.
I rented this dress for my bachelorette weekend. I wanted a size 8 but it wasn't available so I wore a 10. The material is silky and stretchy. The 10 was fine but the 8 would have been perfect. It was just a little baggy under my arms and was low on my chest you could see my bra but I pulled it up. I received a ton of compliments and loved this dress. I can't wait for next time I can rent a dress. It was a great experience with rent the run way.

Loved this dress but it just wasn't flattering on me. The detailing in front flattened the bust and made me look as though I had a big stomach.

The Color & fit make this dress a true knock out! Loved it!
This dress was such a cool and different color to wear. The style and length were both very flattering and wow this dress is comfortable... Some reviewers noted that they felt the front knot felt bulky but I didn't find that to be the case at all. Definitely need nude shoes and accessories.

It was a good fit and great colors for the wedding! I wish I had ordered a smaller size though!
Fit was good but all the layering made my waist look bigger than my chest! I didn't have to fuss with it all night though, which was great! I still had to wear spanx!

Fun option for a beach wedding
Wore this to my best friend's wedding on the beach, so the colors were so bright and fun. The dress is very clingy, and probably would like better with a slip--which I didn't have.

So Comfortable!
This dress was one of the most comfortable dresses I have worn. Larger busted girls take note, the keyhole is front definitely lends itself to more cleavage than it seems in the photos. I thought it was just enough peekaboo but it could have toed the line. Ruching in all the right places!

It was super flattering and the colors are fabulous!
I'm usually a four but the dress is stretchy so I went with the two. The two even fit a little bit loosely!

I received comments about this dress all night! Different, and one that draws attention.
I'm 5'3" and 115 lbs. Athletic build. I'm usually concerned with how long the dress is aka where it hits on my thighs. This is a great, slim fitting dress. It was a bit loose in the stomach area, but it wasn't a huge issues (only I probably noticed it). Super comfortable and attractive. I want to rent it again for another event! I would get a size smaller than you normally are to ensure it fits properly.

The perfect dress for VA Tech graduation dinner because it had the school colors.
The dress ran a little big, so I should have ordered a smaller size and it probably would have hugged my body better. The top was large on me and just made me look larger. The knot didn't fall in the right place either. However, it was very easy to wear in terms of style and comfort. I got extra points for wearing school colors to my husband's graduation dinner party!

Cool design, strange cut
The cut of this dress is quite odd -- it's tight enough to expose flaws if you fill it out, but with enough extra fabric to hang awkwardly if you don't. That said, I enjoyed wearing it and found it comfortable. And I got a lot of compliments from friends who are much more fashionable than I am! I was nervous about renting the 2 since I usually wear a 4 or 6, but I think it ended up being the right size for me. The bright orange color at the very top was not ideal for my olive skin tone -- I bet this would work better on more people if the colors were reversed from bottom to top. Compared to the model I am shorter and bustier, so the skirt was longer on me (almost to the top of the knee when I pulled it down and mid-thigh when it rode up), and the slit in the front exposed more cleavage.

Thanks, I'm similarly built and I was considering the 4, will try the 2.

Thanks Suzanne! I hope it works out for you.

Blah
Looks great on the model but when I put it on, it left much to be desired. Runs big so I had all sorts of extra material on me that just made me disappear and gave me absolutely no shape. I really wanted it to look good because of all the bright colors - but just didn't POP for me. Luckily, I was only sent the dress to review... and I didn't actually have an event.

Never felt better, fabulous dress!
This dress is perfect for a summer wedding - it's bright, comfortable and sassy. There was not much difference in size between the 2 and the 4. Since it is meant to be more form- fitting, I went with the smaller size. My husband could not stop saying how much he loved this dress - and that almost never happens! I felt confident and beautiful and was sad to send it back.

Absolutely stunning!
I rented this dress for my parents 30th anniversary vow renewal. The material was light enough to keep me cool during the outside ceremony on one of the hottest days of July. It was long enough to be classy, yet sexy. I didn't like how the material bunched at the stomach and rear area but that was easily fixed with a pin.

Loved the dress. Colors were gorgeous.
Definitely runs large. I wore an 8 and could of even done a 6. Got tons of compliments on color and dress all night. Perfect for summer wedding. There is extra fabric runching around middle which can sometimes create a pouch look but the dress is very forgiving.

Feeling sexy without sacrificing comfort.
I rented this dress for a dinner date with my husband to celebrate our anniversary. I ordered the 4 and the 6 and ended up wearing the 4 (to be honest, I never even tried on the 6; the 4 fit so well that I just went with it). The dress is incredibly comfortable and the stretch and ruched fabric make it very forgiving. I tried it on with a few different bras and found that wearing a traditional bra (with a deep v cut) was the best way to go. The dress has small straps on the shoulders to hold your bra straps in place, so you don't need to wear a strapless. I wore it with nude shoes (I think that a dark color would overwhelm the dress) and loved the overall effect. I received a lot of compliments and my husband loved it. I would recommend it for summer events (it would be great at an outdoor party), dates, and parties where you want to be a sexy without going overboard.

In my opinion, it was just alright.
The dress is made up of a slickly material and since I'm 5'1 ft and about 95lbs I felt this dress was not as form fitting as I would have liked. Also, since I'm a bit short so the dress was longer on me and made me feel bigger than I am. (Like other reviews said, there is a lot of extra material on the dress near the gathering of colors- on the stomach area).

I absolutely LOVED this dress!!!
The color was gorgeous! It went from Coral to Peach to Magenta/Pink (not red like pictured), and it was ruched all over. The placement of the colors and the ruching definitely accented the waist, so the dress was very flattering. I have definitely never gotten this many compliments on a dress before, and I did not want to return this dress...sigh! Consistent with a lot of the reviews, this dress definitely runs large. I generally wear a size 16, but I had lost some weight, so I thought the 14 would be perfect, but it was like a mumu on me. The 12 fit me well and was not tight at all (even though I was busty and had a big butt and wide hips), but still hugged in the right places. I definitely recommend getting a size smaller.

I loved this dress I wore it for my two year anniversary.
It was super comfortable and was awesome for going out to dinner. I would definitely rent this dress again in the future! I think it runs a little large, it's super stretchy so there's plenty of room for comfort (especially after a huge dinner).

Very comfortable dress yet looked elegant!
I should have got a 2 to see how that would have fit, but I enjoyed this dress. I wish I would have taken more photos though. I rented a pink and gold ring that I wore with it as well. I have a pretty flat tummy. but had to make sure I sucked it in for photos because I noticed in a pic that it looked like I was pregnant. I could just be a little crazy...Great dress though! As always when I rent the runway, I received many compliments. :)

It does run big, so definitely go a size smaller, but I did not have any trouble with a tummy pooch (too much fabric). The dress fit perfectly and I got tons of compliments.

beautiful colorway, but fit and design is a miss
i had originally ordered the herve leger temptation rising dress, but the previous renter didn't return it on time, so RTR sent this dress as a substitute (it's a more expensive rental, so thank you RTR!). the colors were similar and it looked cute, so i thought i'd give it a shot. i usually wear an 8, but the 6 fit (the distance between shoulders are the most fitted part of the dress) and it's quite stretchy, so if you are nervous about anything fitting your middle or hips, it's very accommodating. that said, i feel like this dress is trying to be figure-flattering (lots of ruching, stretchy fabric, bright and fun colors), but it's also kind of frumpy. it's just long enough to feel a touch longer than a flirty cocktail or party dress should be, the fabric around the front does not do any favors (there was a real opportunity to use the colors as an hourglass-making optical illusion, and they missed it), and the fabric is a thin enough that the area around the belly shows every bump and lump (the worst area to highlight detail). i hate to say it, but i think this dress only works truly well for the super skinny or the pregnant—anything in between is sort of a crapshoot.

Meh
The colors were great and the keyhole neck was nice but the twist was bulky and a bit messy-looking. The knot/twist hits at my waist and adds volume in the worst place possible. Would not rent again.

definitely runs large!
To say this dress runs large is an understatement. I'm usually between a 4 and a 6, so I rented a 4 and a 2 based on other reviews. I probably could have easily fit into the 0. The 2 fit ok, but the ruching looked a little droopy since it was loose through the bottom half. I'm very short, and the dress hit just about 1 inch above my knees. The colors in this dress are very vibrant in person and looked great against my very, very pale skin.

Perfect for the Newport venue
At first I wasn't wild on the fit. This dress needs to be tight so that the rouching is pulled tight. The 4 was a bit loose around the tummy so the rouching added some volume (my usual size is a 6 due to my very wide upper back). Otherwise it was perfect for the occasion and was very comfortable!

The colors are amazing on this dress, really photographs well.
Material is a little different than in the picture. I was hoping for a more cotton materials where as the material is actually a little shinier. The slit in the front shows off a lot of cleavage so beware of that. Overall it was a great dress! VERY comfortable and easy to dance in.

Color makes you stand out!
I usually wear a 2-4 in dresses, but this one has a lot of stretch in it and I could have worn the 0. Only downside is the runching in the middle can make your stomach look a little large, going down a size would help flatten that out I'm sure. Super comfortable dress! Head turner for sure!

MY favorite rental yet!!!
I ordered the 14 with the 12 as the backup size. They both fit so when I was invited to an awards dinner the day after the wedding I rented the dress for, I just wore the second one. I felt like a million bucks. Great colors, great details. Compliments all night!!!
