Beautiful dress for a night of eating an amazing meal
The dress was just right for my night out at the French Laundry. I ate so much that I needed a dress that wouldn't be uncomfortable. This fit well, was pretty, and hid my full tummy at the end of the night. What I loved was that when I walked in, the hostess complimented me on my dress!

the color I needed
I love the style that lets you choose whether to wear as a cape or normal belted at the waist. I've worn the dress both ways, and it's easy to accessorize with your own belts and different colored sashes.

Pretty dress for a night out
I rented this dress from the store in Las Vegas. I had already picked another dress for the event I had in mind, but the color of this dress was so pretty, I rented this as well. I wore for a night out walking around, and it was perfect for it. Very comfortable. I will say that I did not wear it the way it's intended to be worn. The cape look was not for me, so I wore the belt around the whole dress. I had also rented a Kate Spade necklace to wear with my other dress, but it was so beautiful I wore it with this too.

Good for petites, but not stunning
The dress was very comfortable and is a great fit for petite girls. It's a nice dress, but I didn't feel stunning in it, so I wore another dress I rented. I would wear it for a more casual wedding.

Cute but not for me
Really loved the fabric and color but the cape style didn't flatter me very much. Ended up not wearing it for the wedding.

Bright fun dress
This dress was a little on the short side for me, and the color was brighter than it comes across in the photos. This was my back up dress, but I ended up having two events in two nights, so I wore it. It was a lot of fun, but for pear shaped girls, I don't think it was quite as flattering as one might think- especially not at the shorter length. There is a lot more fabric than what appears in the picture, and the area where the belt goes through you can actually see skin. You can also wear the back more like a cape, which is nice and I ended up doing that to get a couple of extra inches in the back.

Pleatastic!
This was a great dress, wore it to chaperone a prom. Very chic and youthful, but still mature enough that I wasn't dressed like one of the kids. Saw that some wore it with the belt wrapped all the way around, but that was too simple. I loved the back of the dress and I love how comfortable I felt in the dress. The "cape" was the best part in my opinion.

Beautiful color!
The belt feeds through holes in the side of the dress. I have a size 0 waist and am fuller through the hips. When I tied the belt tight, there was gaping at the sides of the dress so you could see my skin peeking through the holes. Dress also photographed sheer! Would not order if small waist.

I stood out in the sea of LBDs and felt fabulous. Great dress for even a work function.
This was my first rental. Everything went smoothly, once I finally got it rented. I The dress fit beautifully. I had two work events with separate groups so I was able to wear it twice. I got so many compliments both from friends and even strangers. The color is deep and rich. I loved the flowy feeling and it was extremely comfortable.

Gorgeous dress for a special occasion
This dress was amazing! I wore it for my pharmacy school's white coat ceremony. It's incredibly comfortable and easy to wear. The bust was snug but not uncomfortably tight. If you're going to wear a bra I recommend a strapless. When I tried it on with a regular bra the straps kept showing. I wore the belt all the way around my waist. You can do the belt just in the front for the cape effect but I preferred having the entire waist cinched in. Either way, it's a great dress for a special occasion.

Beautiful color!!!
I rented this dress for a banquet with my boyfriend, and meeting his family for the first time - perfect dress! The 6 was huge so I'm glad I did the 4 backup - fit perfect. The only thing I disliked about this dress is the belt runs through the inside of the dress so your skin shows a bit on the sides - I found this really odd, but couldn't figure out a different way to wear it without belting it all the way around, and then you lose the "cape" part.

Comfortable, pretty, not very flattering.
This dress is a beautiful, deep purple. The pic doesn't do it justice. However, I found the fit overall unflattering. The tie came farther up my torso than on the model so it made it more like an empire waist, making it feel like a maternity dress. :( I wouldn't recommend for large chests.

The color of the dress was really beautiful, and it had a lot of movement on the dance floor and while walking.

The color was spectacular, the dress was meh.
I loved the color of this dress and received lots of compliments on the color. That was, by far, the best thing about it. The chiffon was light and airy. But... it just wasn't very flattering. I'm not a stick, but I'm not wide either and this dress made me look wider than I am. I had hoped that the long pleats would elongate my frame, but instead the dress billowed at the belt and I looked short and thick because it drew the eye to the middle. I would recommend this to a tall, svelte person where the pleats could hang uninterrupted.

I rented both the 2 and the 4 for a wedding, the arm holes of the 2 were a little snug so I went with the 4, both fit in the body.

RTR was very helpful in providing feedback and promptly providing merchandise credit for my return.
Beautiful color, even better in person! The dress was true-to-size everywhere except in the bust. I don't even know if someone with an A-cup would've felt comfortable in this dress. It was SO small at the top and I ended up not being able to wear it to my event. :(

I went to a friend's dinner party that was partnered with channel. I always have fun dressing for her events, but just having a baby I didn't want to spend too much--this was an awesome alternative! And my friend, who is a fashion guru, loved my dress.
Great dress. It runs a little snug on top.

Perfect!
I rented this dress for my daughters First Communion and it was perfect! The fit was very flattering. I am typically a size 10 and it was true to size. I was nervous that it would be a bit short but it fell just above my knee. I would highly recommend this beautiful dress:)

Cute with a little help
The dress was a lot of fabric. It overwhelmed my straighter frame when styled as sent. A wide belt gave it a little extra shape and I was good to go!

Cute, lots of compliments
I wore this dress for my bridal shower. It was super cute and I got lots of compliments. I usually wear a 0 and this dress seemed true to size except it felt a teensy bit tight at the neckline but still fit. Would definitely recommend!

Used this dress for my student portfolio. It looked great on the model and fit pretty well. I've attached a picture from the shoot. Thanks RTR!

All Smiles!
This is a super cute dress and the color makes everyone smile! Wore it to a friend's bridal shower with black heels and a long gold necklace. I could eat, sit and dance comfortably. However, it fits tight in the arms and I would recommend tying the sash around the entire dress vs trying to put it through the holes on the side.

Pretty Color...
The color of this dress is a very beautiful deep purple that's richer in person than in the picture. The fabric is nice and light, but there's way too much of it for the dress to be flattering. I could not wear it to the holiday party I rented it for, and regret not getting a backup dress.

There is only one word to describe this dress: frumpy. I am usually between a 4 and a 6 and the size 4 looked huge on me due to the amount of fabric. I agree with another reviewer that this dress looked like a tent. I could not wear it as planned.

Pros: stunning color and I love the pleated detail. the skirt has a great kick to it and the fabric moves well. Cons: I found the holes through which the sash was threaded to be a bit odd. When cinched to the front, the back flows wild and free, which means that to the back it just hangs like a pleated tent. I ended up unthreading it and cinching around the waist to show off that I have a shape. and because of the pleats it made me look heavier than I am. This dress was a size 4. In short, this dress doesn't do body shapes any favors. I think this would look just LOVELY if I had a body like the model.
