STYLIST REVIEW
Fabulous true blue dress! Running true to size we recommend sizing up for back-up. This fabric does have some stretch to it which is a plus. This dress is best for A-C cups and needs to be worn with a strapless bra. It is synched at the waist but has a bit of room due to the stretchy material. This dress hits below the knee and would be considered tea length.

A chic stunner!
I don't normally like below the knee dresses because of my height but this beautiful blue was so stunning. The sheer detailing around the waist and calves are subtle enough for a wedding (more formal event) but still give the dress a playful look. Highly recommend!

Awesome, sexy dress!
This is a fantastic dress and I would rent it again in a heartbeat! I wore it to a semi-formal event and got a ton of compliments. It's very sexy because it's tight but not too revealing, since the length is just below the knee, so it would work well for many types of events. The fit of this dress is best worn very snug to the body - it basically fits like a glove but is super comfortable too. It fits true to size (I'm a size 6, athletic/curvy), but get ready to suck it in all night if you have to! ;) The color is a beautiful bright blue. I didn't wear a ton of jewelry (just jeweled earrings and a bracelet) because it didn't need much, but you could easily spice it up with a pretty necklace. Overall, this dress is beautiful, sexy, and comfortable - loved it!

This dress is everything!
I don't even know where to start... The fabric is so stretchy but with an expensive feel. The lining is silky soft. I danced all night in this dress! I normally wear a 2 and the 2 fit like a glove! There is no forgiveness as far as what it shows - stand straight and keep that stomach sucked in! Pros: color is incredible - no one had that color on! Shows off your curves like a champ. So comfortable! The sheer panels were perfect to give the dress a modern feel but it was still conservative (not overly sexy to be inappropriate). The halter top and lower back showed off my arms just right - loved all the lines! Cons: it's a tight pencil skirt all the way to your calves. Be prepared to take small steps. You have to have great posture to pull off this dress. Stand straight and suck that tummy in all night. I have pretty much an A cup so the top was a tiny bit big on me. I absolutely loved this dress - I looked amazing! My favorite rental so far!

Beautiful dress. Runs small, especially in the hip area. Big at the bust. No give in the fabric.

Sophisticated and unique!
I really enjoyed wearing this dress. I wore my usual size and it fit like a glove, I would recommend sizing up for your backup. The dress has a little bit of stretch so it is surprisingly comfortable for being so fitted. (However it was a little tricky to go up stairs and walk quickly because it is pretty tight past the knee.) The mesh detail on the waist and legs is subtle but sexy. I loved the detail of the back straps as well - great for showing off your shoulders/arms/back.

This dress is a dream. It was love at first fit.
LOVE LOVE LOVE. The material was a perfect mix of control (keep everything in its place) and free (though tight it has plenty of give). I was able to dance all night and didn't feel limited. The only time I struggled a bit with the narrow bottom was walking UP a grand staircase. I typically air on the side of a looser fitting dress as well as neutral colors however this color was magic. I felt like this dress is classy with its length but has a little sass with its fit. Perfect for a formal wedding.

Sexy, but chic
This dress was amazing!!!! It pretty much runs true to size. I am 5'6'', 32D, 115 lbs and I wore a size 2. I was able to wear a strapless bra with the dress. It was tight, so you have to wear either spanx to help suck it all in because it really forms to you body. I got so many compliments on it and felt sexy and was able to stand out in a sea of black dresses. Definitely would rent again for another formal occasion.

Great fit, looks sexy but classy, & comfortable, gives a little for any figure
Got this dress for a date and loved it. It fit well on an hourglass figure, hugged me a little in the stomach and behind but it still looked good. The bottom hem of the dress isn't very flexible so I had to take small steps. Was very satisfied with this choice!

Beautiful color! Great for a summer wedding.
I ordered the 4 and the 6 and ended up wearing the 6. Since it was so form-fitting, trying to zip it up near the 2 sheer panels was extremely difficult and since I had a little more wiggle room in the 6, it made it a little easier to zip and unzip. Was able to wear a strapless bra without being seen and had to make sure to stand up straight and suck in all night. The color and length of the dress was perfect! It was great for a summer wedding. The sheer panels really added to the dress, giving it a little something extra without showing too much.

Fit perfectly and very comfortable!
I wore this dress to a spring wedding. The color is very bright and stands out. It was also very comfortable, but because it's tight around the knees, it makes it a bit difficult to walk quickly. Aside from that, I would definitely rent again!

Very pretty dress
It was a beautiful dress, and I was complimented on it numerous times. I did find that it was a little tough to wear all night because I had to adjust it and keep pulling it down if I walked anywhere. Really pretty in person, for some reason I couldn't get it to photograph well - Also it is a dress that is not necessarily the most flattering if you're a little self conscious of your mid section

Awesome dress, inexpensive yet makes you look and feel like a million bucks.
Dress was beautiful and fit great. Only minor issue was that the straps were too long for me, so I had to pin them. Easy fix, and looked great. I rented this for a black tie wedding and was a little concerned it wouldn't be fancy enough, but it certainly was. I would definitely rent this again.

The dress looks even better in person -- beautiful material but the color really pops!
Initially I ordered the size 4 and thought it fit, snugly and then ordered the 6 to see -- ended up going with the Size 4. Received so many compliments on the style (neckline & shear knee) and color.

Beautiful color!
Loved this dress, the color and fit was beautiful. Not the most comfortable or forgiving though, so keep that in mind depending on the event. It is very fitted through the lower half which restricts walking and dancing somewhat.

Most compliments I've received at a wedding.
Might be an awkward fit if you're pear-shaped. The size 4 was more comfortable in the hips but too big up top, so I went with the size 2. I had to use pasties because my strapless and stick-on bras peeked out from the sides. This dress does not hide pudge at all. All that being said, I got so many compliments on this dress. The extra effort was worth it.

Great color and fit. Runs true to size and the material was not too thin. It was a little hard to walk in since the bottom was narrow. Overall it was a perfect dress for a wedding.

Love the color of this dress
I loved this dress. The cut outs are stretchy which makes them super comfortable. The length was perfect for a wedding, not too short! I wore the 6 because I felt like the area around the rib cage fit better even though the 4 zipped up just fine, I'm so glad I sized up here. The area in the bust felt a tad big but if I stood up straight it felt a lot better.

Lovely colour, Flattering fit
This was my back up dress after my original order didn't work out. I picked it up at the RTR store in Flatiron, NY. I was a bit apprehensive about it at first because it had a few marks on it from other people trying it on in the store and it was also a size smaller than what I'd usually wear. The store steamed it fresh for me though and it looked fine when I left. The colour is lovely, fit is great if you're tall. I haven't the biggest bust so I didn't bother with a bra, but I wore Spanx to avoid a VPL. I'm tall so this came just below the knee and looked very well. The material is a bit stretchy which might explain why I fit into the size 6.

Flatter your figure with a pop of color!
I wore this dress for a wedding rehearsal dinner the night before a destination wedding on a tropical island. This is a great dress to show off an hourglass figure without being too revealing. I got lots of compliments on the color and fit. Thought it was very humid, I didn't get sweat marks on my dress. I did not wear a bra, but if I had to do it again I would wear adhesive nipple covers. Also know that the material is tight - not so much that it's uncomfortable in general, but going up steps or stairs will require a little maneuvering.

Pop of Color!
This dress is really gorgeous but it is pretty skin tight. Any undergarment I wore showed lines so I skipped those. It would have been a good dress to try Spanx with but overall, the dress was great. I loved the length and it really gave me an hour glass figure!

Va va voom!!
This dress was an absolutely stunning blue color and made from a great fabric that doesn't wrinkle easily. It is a little tight in the legs, so not an ideal dress for venues with stairs or getting low in the dance floor. But overall I loved it and got a lot of compliments throughout the night.

SO MUCH YAS
Let it be known that short girls can rock the hell out of this dress! I'm 5'2 and wore this to my brother-in-law's wedding and it fit like a glove! I see what people are saying in reviews about it being tight at the bottom, but it's also elastic. I did a lot of moving around in this dress and walking up and down stairs and it stayed looking flawless! It hugs you in all of the right spots, but definitely requires some good posture. Got a ton of compliments and I'm pretty sure my husband wants me to rent it again. Loved it!!!

It runs small. I was a little surprised by the lack of dress on the sides of the bust. I ended up wearing a fancy jacket over it because it was a work function.

The color of the dress was gorgeous and stood out without drawing attention from the bridal party.
I had previously read reviews saying that the dress ran small. Therefore, I ordered my size as well a size up. I did not need to wear a size up, I found that the dress ran true to size. The only problem I had with the fit was when sitting it was very uncomfortable since it was so tight against my legs (from the knee down). I had to pull the dress up a bit to make it more comfortable. Ultimately, I loved this dress and received many compliments. I would recommend it to anyone!

Perfect for a summer / spring wedding!
Color and fit were great. Runs true to size as well - fit into my usual size perfectly. Many other renters complained about the bottom of the dress making it hard to walk in, but I didn't have that problem since the fabric is stretchy. The only thing worth making note of (especially if renting for a wedding), is how easily spilled water or drinks show up on this fabric (even the smallest drops). Other than that - great dress!

Comfortable and sexy
Loved the color, fit was snug (I was between the 2 and 4 but wanted room for cake so I opted for the 4), cut was gorgeous and the material was very comfortable. The only issue I had with this dress was that it was a tiny bit big on the top but I got away with it. Probably a better fit for B/C size boobs.

Beautiful peacock blue dress. Very flattering and easy to wear. Especially if you love to show arms.
This dress fit snug with little give. It is very comfortable and wears very nicely. I paired this dress with a pair of nude stilettos and a pair of turquoise marbled Kendra Scott earrings. I also chose a summer tangerine lipstick for an extra pop against the dress. I kept my eyeshadow neutral. I am on the short side, so the dress goes past my knees, but I feel like that adds to the drama. The cutouts and net fabric are very nice and are elegant and not at all too much. Great dress.
