I'm pretty short so I had to tape up the bottom tier of the dress. Other than that the dress fit perfectly and I got compliments all night long!

My favorite dress so far!
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
This is my favorite RTR dress so far! I was looking for an edgy dress for a wedding and this one was perfect! Extremely comfortable, lightweight material and a very flattering fit. I received so many compliments all night. It does fit a bit tight in the hips, so I suggest going a size up. I would definitely rent this dress again and highly recommend it!

One of a kind shift!
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
I adore this shift! It is so comfortable and easy to wear. You can dress it up with heels or down with sandals, it wears well either way! It does run tighter in the hip/butt area. I had ordered a 6 and an 8 because of the previous reviews about the sizing and I was still able to wear the 6 with room to spare. I will most definitely rent this again!

Fun dress! Watch the hips!
Size worn: 0

Fun dress!!! Be careful with the hips though---it runs narrow in the hips. I could have worn the 2, but my husband said the 0 looked better because the 2 was loose everywhere else. Order up, for sure! It was, generally, comfortable. And, I liked that I could wear this dress more "low key" than other dresses I've rented.

AMAZING.

I will title this dress 'What are the other options' as ALL my friends I sent the link to said that. HOWEVER I stuck with my instincts and knew it would be a flattering fit. I wore this to a black tie party at the MOMA and it was a huge hit. SO comfortable, extremely flattering- and very unique. Can not recommend this dress enough!!

Wore this to a fancy restaurant on the beach - could not have picked a more perfect dress. It was so light and comfortable, and could be dressed up with heels or dressed down with sandals!

STYLIST REVIEW!
Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
LOVE this new Helmut Lang! Really great dress for a bunch of occasions. Could easily wear with tights and booties out at night, during the day with flat boots, or even with pumps. It's a comfortable fit because it is not fitted in the stomach but I would not recommend getting if you are larger than a C cup. Fitted in the bust and the hips, so if you are larger than a C cup size up! Also if you are worried about your hips I would recommend sizing up. I am usually a size 2, I wore the size 0 but would maybe try the size 2 next time!

This dress is really simple and can be dressed up or down. It's very comfortable and flattering. The sea horses are a bit less shiny than in the photos, which was a pro for me.

Rented this dress for an evening cocktail party and LOVED it. It was comfortable and stylish and I loved the different print. It's a fun take on the LBD. The dress held up well all day. Paired with the Badgley Mischka Jewelry Blue Ice Crystal Earrings.

Very cute, but it came super wrinkled and I didn't have time to steam it so I couldn't wear it. RTR was awesome though and gave me credit.

Fun dress- looks great on!
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I wore this dress out with friends in the city and overall felt pretty good in it. The fit is a little tough, I ended up wearing the size 8- but it was tight in the chest so I went braless (which was not so bad). I tried on the 10 and the neckline felt too big- also the length was a little long in that size. The dress looked stunning from the front, the only real issue I had with the dress (and this is why I am not giving it 5 stars) is that in both the size 8 and 10 the zipper puckered in the back. It wasn't terrible enough for me to not wear it, but I was a bit self-conscious about it while out.

Didn't end up wearing because it was tight through the bust, but no where else, so it shifted the dress wrong. Cute dress. Appears well made.

This dress is FAB.
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Vacation
Unfortunately, I didn't get to wear it out, so- no photos! Our night out turned into a fun night in with friends, so this amazing dress stayed packed away... I was so disappointed, because I fell in love with it the minute I put it on! Fit advice: definitely size up. I normally wear a 4/6, and only rented the 8 because it was the ONLY size left for my rental date. It worked out perfectly, and I would not have worn anything smaller (it fits a little tight across the chest and shoulders due to cut) Also - beware! Although it does not run too short (hit mid thigh on me- I'm 5'9", when you lift your arms it will raise significantly. I was so sad to return this dress unworn, and will definitely rent it again next summer.

I ordered this in a 4 and 6. The 4 fit perfectly! I As other reviewers have mentioned, you can definitely dress this up w/ heels in jewelry or dress it down with sandals.

Edgy, Fun
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Ordered this dress for my 24th birthday party along with a few others. I didn't end up wearing this dress (I had more accessories picked out for the other one) but I felt like this dress was the most "me" actually. It's a good length, not fitted, but nicely tailored.. The shoulder area is slightly restrictive, as in the entire dress will raise up if you lift your arms above your head. Otherwise I had no complaints.

Deceptively tight.
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
This dress is not as cool and laid-back as it looks on the model. Would not recommend for busty hourglass shape. If you have curves, it hugs the butt- not in an unflattering way- but it throws off the cut of the dress creating either extra fabric by the tummy, or forcing you to constantly pull it down- far too much maintenance for me. That said, still think the pattern rocks and has even more contrast between the silver and black in person.

I loved this dress! . Shoulders were slightly tight and uncomfortable at first, but once you get used to it it's not so bad! I would wear this dress constantly if I owned it! Paired with Kate Spade's Aqua Kate earrings and Belle Fleur Bangle which really popped against the black.

This is a great dress. I am sorry I do not have a picture. It fits in all the right places. Not too baggy. The material is beautiful. This is a fun and sophisticated dress with out trying to hard. I recommend it. I paired it with my own seahorse necklace and a pair of nude vamp jimmy choos. Perfect.
