Compliments on how well the dress!!!

It was a little snug in the bust, I am a 36D, but over all it fit great!! Love the pockets!! I am usually going to a weeding and of course cannot wear white, so I was chaperoning a prom and thought here is my chance! I did have on nice heels but they didn't last all night! Lol but this dress you can wear casually or dress it up very versatile!

Runs true to size, maybe a smidgin bigger than normal. Great for someone with a larger chest without making you look bigger.

RTR made this year's Christmas party special.

Size worn: 8
Rented for: Party
The dress was beautiful. I wish they had a larger size available as I wanted the fit to be more of a baggy look. The fabric is beautiful. I wore black leather leggings under the dress and you couldn't see the black through it. It is definitely an edgier look. Loved it.

Great dress for a polished look

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress for my City Hall wedding. Great fit, relaxed and quite roomy on top but fitted at the hips. Hugged in all the right places with out being too form fitted. The hem hit mid thigh standing up but was a little short when I sat down. The material is quite thick, made it ideal for November. I loved it!

Great dress, good quality, slightly snug in bottom area if you have an athletic or curvy figure. All in all, it's a beautiful dress.

Cute dress worn to a charity event

Size worn: 2
Rented for: Formal Affair
I got this dress as a backup to another but I ended up wearing it to a different event. It's a very cute dress but not exactly my favorite. The material is thick and nice. I purposely ordered a smaller size so the dress wouldn't be so boxy and it was perfect.

The dress is a bit too long from my waist to the shoulders.

pretty dress but ran too small

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Vacation
the dress runs very small. it is supposed to have a boxier feel, but the 4 was super tight on me so it just looked like an ill-fitting sheath dress. I didn't get a backup dress, but I think it would have been cute one size up.

Gorgeous

This dress is so well made, understated but hip. Wore it with black tights, booties, and a black necklace for a winter art opening. Sized like mall sizes rather than designer sizes. I usually wear a 0 or 2 at places like JCrew or Banana Republic, but usually a 4 or 6 in designer dresses. The size 0 fit me perfectly.

Very boxy and fabric was very thin

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size

I ended up not wearing this dress because it was very boxy and the fabric was very think. It reminded me of a padding cover for a mattress.

Surprisingly good

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
This was sent when my backup dress was not available and I was surprised to find myself really liking it. Nice, substantial fabric that looks expensive. A nice edgy look without being over the top. The only reason I didn't wear it is because it ran large and RTR only sent me a six. If I had been sent the 4, it would have been a surprising winner. Try it out!

I had to wear a different dress to the event, as this one was far too big.

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress runs SO big, hence the 3-star review. Although I couldn't wear it to my event, I'd give it 5 stars for how beautiful it is. In person, the fabric is textured and heavy in a really beautiful cream color. The shoulder and collar are both a smooth cream-colored fabric, which offset the textured parts and add to the structure of the look. I tend toward boxy dresses, and this dress in the correct size would look amazing on someone with an athletic build. The measurements provided by RTR really didn't help. I wish they would provide actual measurements instead of just saying that a dress is "roomy in the hips." How roomy? What measurements? Hello? I'm 5'6" and wear size 27 jeans, and would not consider myself to be "xxs," so I ordered the 2 and 4. Bad move. If you are deciding between two sizes, definitely choose a size down, as the boxiness of this dress combined with the heavy fabric aren't flattering when you're swimming in them.

This dress was a little bit worn, it was very pilly on the fabric so I did not want to wear it. The cut was nice, just maybe call ahead to make sure it's no pilling.

Squeezes in strange places.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
It's a awesome dress, the material is a bit heavier than I had expected. But why I didn't wear it came down to the way it fitted and rested on my body, It was tight along the thighs and the upper body, but it left a little pocket along my midsection. Not really flattering. So I passed on this one. I think it would look better on more straight body types for sure.
