This was my first RTR experience and it was great! I was instantly hooked on RTR!
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
I was originally worried about the fit as they only had an 8 or a 12 available for my event date but the 8 fit perfectly, even over my fuller bust. I was also apprehensive about the sleeves (ex-swimmer here, so I have big shoulders) but there was plenty of room and they were long enough too! The dress overall was long enough as well, which, as I'm so tall, was also a plus! The dress was comfortable, not too hot, and subtly stylish. I really want to rent it again someday I loved it that much! Got many compliments too!

Edgy, but thin and fragile sleeves
Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Date
Not what I was expecting. The sleeves are cashmere (or cashmere-like) and very thin. This is a great textural and fabric contrast from the remainder of the dress, but very prone to rips. Both dresses I received had a small hole somewhere on the sleeves before I even tried them on. Not sure a dress this fragile is appropriate for RTR format. The rest of the dress was fun (neckline and structure up there is different and awesome), but didn't blow me away. I have very narrow shoulders, and this dress fit me well on top. I would certainly size up if you have broader shoulders or a more athletic frame. It was also slightly short on me.

I loved the sleeves and the different textures of the dress. It is very form-fitting and flattering, but the jersey sleeve made it comfy. Unfortunately, it was a little too big for me in the hips, I was sooo bummed I had to send it back.

Getting lots of compliments~
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This dress was a great fit and super comfortable because the sleeves a jersey. I wore it to a brunch and it wasn't too fancy, but still looked a bit dressy because of the high quality materials and careful cut. I got tons of compliments. For fit I'd say it is a bit roomy in the waist, but overall was snug in the places i wanted it to be, and not in the others. The skirt has a bit of give. I wore House of Harlow jewelery with the dress, which also worked well.

Beautiful Dress - Ran Short
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I didn't end up wearing it b/c it was too short on me. The Material is really nice if you are shorter. The style is also very slimming. Overall a nice dress, just not for me. I think a larger size would have been OK but at the last minute I was informed a size I booked was damaged and unavailable. Overall, if you are petite this is a great dress for you

Classy and appropriate
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
This was a very classy dress. Believe it or not, I rented it for a funeral. It was classy enough for such an occasion. For a tall person, the dress was a little bit short, but not tacky. I found that it ran small. I typically wear a size six with ease. Thank goodness for the back up size! I wore this in an 8 and feel I probably could have even gone up to a 10. If you have a VERY slender figure, it would not be an issue. However, I have a rear-end. It is not big, but it is round. I am not particularly large chested, so the top was fine, but the bottom was a little more snug than I was comfortable with. If you have a few curves, size up 2 sizes. Otherwise, I got a million compliments and the dress worked well for the occasion.

This dress is good for warm weather. I wore it for a New Year's Eve party. It's figure flattering, and the neckline is a nice twist on the classic little black dress.

I was only able to rent the 8 because it was a last minute rental. I usually wear between a 6 and an 8, however, the 8 did fit! It does run a bit small and form fitting. Overall, I was pleased with the dress.

neat LBD
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I agree with all of the reviews that said your normal size is good for a night on the town with friends, but not for a more formal setting. I'd rent a size up if you're going to a work or family event. I didn't particularly like the material the sleeves were made out of (cotton blend). The dress itself was nice, but it was not my favorite rental.

Not for me
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I liked the idea of this dress, but it ended up being really small and I didn't wear it. Also, beware that some of the fabric is wool, so I wouldn't wear this dress anywhere warm. I think if you size up, or if you have more of a straight and narrow body type this would be a great dress--it just wasn't right for me.

The fit was almost perfect, the sleeves were a little tight around the shoulder area though. They're also made of a different material than the rest of the dress; the sleeves are a much lighter, stretchier fabric.

Not the look I was going for

Overall fit: True to Size

I rented this dress for a company holiday party, which was held at a night club venue. I wanted something a little trendier, but I think this may be better suited for a dinner event or something more conservative. I ended up not wearing the dress, but did get credited towards another rental. Hopefully better luck next time.

I didn't wear this dress!

Overall fit: True to Size

I loved this dress from its photo---it didn't look like a typical "LBD". As I am near 60 years old, I've finally decided to cover my arms, and this fit the bill perfectly for a dinner party celebrating the engagement of my friend's daughter. I am so glad I chose a back-up dress at the last minute, as both sizes of this dress were misshapen, with the sleeves WAY too long, and the fabric cheap looking.

The smaller size I got was a little tight in the sleeve because I have broader shoulders so I went up a size. It was very comfortable and I would highly recommend.

Comfortable and flattering
Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I wore this to a presentation and after party during NYFW. I felt very comfortable in the dress, both physically and emotionally. It has an interesting look to it with the cross and mix of fabrics so it works at a fashion event, but it's also a classic black so it's not TOO bold of a choice. I think it could work nicely for a work party. I selected true to size even though most of the reviews said it ran large. I felt like it fit, even though it wasn't skin tight. I have sort of broad shoulders compared to my hips, but perhaps someone with narrower shoulders might feel like they were swimming it the dress on top

Success!
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I rented this dress for my husband's post-holiday party. I loved the concept of renting a dress but was skeptical because I am petite ( 5'1") and almost always must have a dress hemmed. I typically wear a 6 or 8 petite so I ordered the size 8 and chose the 6 for my free alternate size. While the size 6 would have been perfect for a night out, it was a little too tight for a work event, so I went with the size 8, which had a little more room in the hips and bust. The sleeves are a knit material so they easily adjusted to my shorter arms, and the hem fell about two inches above the knee. A great find and I was really happy with my experience!

Overall fit: True to Size

Wow. While I chose this dress and wore it because I liked it, and was at this event with my husband, men I don't even know other than nodding acquaintances remarked on this dress. One liked the zipper up the back, another one said he was impressed, and on and on. It's sleek, covered up, and somewhat mysterious, and I felt good in it. It doesn't need to be worn with a strapless bra (those miserable things!), or bra cups. It was true to size in the hips for me, and even though I am short (5' 3"), it wasn't too long. I wish I had another event tonight to wear it to!

This is the second Helmut Lang size 0 that was large on me. I love the style of this designer, but I guess they don't love me--yet....I'm renting a 3rd Helmut Lang next month, so we'll see! I'm tiny on top, thick in the hips and long waisted. My alternate Doo Ri dress, size 0 (black/white abstract) fit like a glove.

I got a ton of compliments on this dress. It flatters a small bust. It is a little loose in the stomach area. Really wears well..I was a little nervous b/c my first choice dress was already reserved, but this one definitely worked out. Zipper is single friendly - no other set of hands needed.

This dress was plain yet trendy. It just wasn't a good dress for my body shape. It fit perfect hip/butt area but was loose in the stomach/waist area. This dress would definitely be more flattering on someone tall. Im only 4'11"and so it fell too long on me, which made my legs even shorter. So I would say someone taller would rock this dress out!
