I loved the dress, fit great and was perfect for a party.

The dress was great, loved it. Only have good things to say about it. I felt pretty wearing it etc. This was my second time renting with RTR, first time was also a great dress and seemless service. This time, the dress didn't make it in town. I rented it for my bday party and they had put the wrong address on the package. The service represenatitive at RTR was very apologetic and helpful in getting the dress re-routed, It arrived the next day but I missed my intended event. Ended up wearing it to dinner and they gave me 50% off my next rental I'd advice getting dress delivered at least one day before your event.

The fit of the size zero was a little better for me (size 2 was too big). The dress may have been stretched slightly from being worn a few times. Usually I'm between a 0-2. The material was lightweight, smooth & silky, felt great on my skin. What a fabulous dress!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size

Because of my height i went a size up (ordered a 4, normally a 2) the length of the dress was perfect but it was a bit big through the hips. Great dress if you are going to have an active evening as it is very comfortable. Wore this to Wynn Las Vegas for dinner and nightclub - saw it in the window of one of their stores =)

Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This dress fit well in a size 0 for me and you don't have to worry about bra issues at all. The length fell perfectly at mid-thigh. It wasn't too short or too long. I wore a black leather belt to make it funkier and to cinch the waist a bit.

This dress fit perfectly; true to size. It may have been a little short, but I was wearing it for a bachelorette party, so I didn't really mind. The dress was very flattering because of the cap sleeves and nice fit. I loved the design. Perfect unique dress for a party!

Perfect Glam dress for Glamorama.

Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I wore this dress to an annual fashion fundraiser in San Francisco, Macy's Glamorama. Lovely print + great fit. I was a bit surprised at the length. It warns you it's a mini. I'm not very tall so I was suprised that the length was short but it worked out fabulously.

GREAT, flattering fit
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This was a dress I had as a back up option, but it had a really flattering fit on my 5'3, 125, 34D, 27 waist body. It wasn't so tight that I would've been uncomfortable or self conscious, but definitely hugged enough to show a flattering figure. I ended up going for my main pick just because it had more color and that was what I was in the mood for, but I'd definitely rent this for another event!

I rented this as well as another dress. I wasn't able to actually wear it because i liked the other dress better (it had more of a wow-factor cuz it had an interesting cut-out), but will definetly rent this dress again. it fit snug but was very flattering to my curvy shape. My bf also gave this dress 2 thumbs up. I'll probably rent this again for an uncoming wedding.

I received the dress without a hassle, although it did seem a little worn. Sadly, it was both too long and too loose for me so I had to return it for merchandise credit. For taller girls, I'm sure it will be beautiful.

A very flattering style. I am a 0/2 and wore the 0 in this dress. It is fitted so you'll want to be looking for a dress that shows your figure! The fabric is soft and very comfortable. Easy to move in without a doubt. I wore it with black ankle boots and bold bracelets. Loved it!!!

This is such a fun mini! The fabric is to die for -- stretchy silk that is super smooth to the touch. It's not constricting at all, and the print is phenomenal! Definitely rent this if you're going to an art exhibition or fashion forward event!

Great dress. Pictures don't do it justice. True to size, well cut and very comfortable. Wore to a work event/party. Tons of compliments and just the amount of personality but still appropriate. Paired with neon pink pumps and a black cuff.

Wore this to a bachelorette party weekend. Size 0 fit perfectly... Held up over a posh dinner and a night of dancing, and was totally comfortable all night long. Great quality fabric and construction - there is also a very lightweight black liner to this dress. Would go back to this again!

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small

I have broad shoulders and a full bust and I couldn't get the dress on. I am normally a size 10 but I couldn't fit the size 12 on. I would recommend this dress for a petite person or someone with less curves up top.

Funky and modern

Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
Pros: loved the fit, arm length very flattering, cool print, very soft and comfortable, not too revealing at bust Cons: print did not always photograph well because it can be unflattering at certain angles due to not lining up with natural curves (but looked great in person) Overall; would rent again or even buy this dress, it was so easy and can be casual or dressy

Cute but VERY short
Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I rented this dress for a birthday party and planned to wear ti with black tights and booties. Unfortunately, when the dress arrived, it was far too short...even with the tights. The fit of the dress through the body is perfect; however, the arm holes are very small and unflattering. I wish I had been able to wear this dress as the material was very comfortable and forgiving.

I rented this dress to wear during the day on my birthday. It is very short [which I loved!] and suited to ladies with athletic figures. I received many complements on the dress, and how well it flattered my 'karate' figure.

Not as flirty as I expected
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I ended up not wearing this dress. I am quite petite and this dress was too long to be fun and flirty. My roommate actually said she thought I could wear it to work! I was wearing it with stockings (because it was freezing out). It does show off an hourglass figure nicely and the pattern was pretty but it just seems to be missing a little bit of jazz. I rented both the 4 and the 6 - the 6 fit me a little better but made it even more "work-y". Also I had ordered it for a cocktail attire event and I think it just looked a little too casual for that. Probably perfect for a taller girl for a girl's night out or date but not for a fancier event.

This dress fit very well and looked very nice on. The down fall of this dress was that it had terrible body odor right in the armpit areas. Because the dress is fitted right under your arms, it captures other people's odor, and doesn't go away even after the dry cleaning. It was so terrible, I couldn't wear it out, and since i was away from home that night, I couldn't return it for something else.
Shading in dress made me Beyonce!

This dress is so cute! I wore it to a rehearsal dinner with a black boyfriend jacket and patent leather Louboutins, I got so many compliments. It was a little tight around the hips so I went with a 4 instead of the 2. Very cute!

It's a cute dress but looks better in the photo. I usually wear small but size 2 was a little too lose - I thought the dress will be tighter... it's probably ment to be worn by taller girls... It was still nice but not perfect or not a big hit I expected it to be.

I really loved this dress! I'm usually around a size 2, and fortunately I ordered the 2 and the 4, because the 4 fit me perfectly. The 2 was just a little bit too tight and short. It was comfortable and didn't get wrinkled after sitting for 2 hours.
