This dress made me look and feel great!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large

This dress was perfect for my birthday party. Its just the right amount of sass and class. Note to potential renters: This is a short dress. I am only 5ft and it still hit above my mid thigh. It was also a little big on top, but nothing a little bit of fashion tape couldn't fix. I loved it! Thank you!

Fit wasn't right

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
I am usually between a 2 and a 4; I wore the 2 and it was still quite baggy in the chest (I'm a 34B). It's a pretty dress, but the fit just wasn't right. I didn't feel super confident in this dress.

I felt classy and sexy at the same time

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
The dress looks exactly like in the photos, except that the green is a lil brighter. I usually wear size 4 and that's the size I ended up wearing, dress was a lil big on the chest area for me but fitting as an overall was good. I loved the contrast of the white belt and the length of the dress, it's short as I wanted it. I would totally recommend this dress for a party.

It was a bit tight around the bust and the waist but overall incredibly comfortable. I tried it with a couple of other belts but the one it came with worked best.

Flattering & fun

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
I wore this out for dinner & drinks on my birthday. I ordered the 6 and 8, and ended up wearing the 6. The 6 was a little shorter than I am usually comfortable with, but since I was wearing black tights and the top fit my small chest much better than the 8, I went with the 6. It was flattering and comfortable, and I got lots of compliments. Four stars instead of five because I don't think it's absolutely the most best fitting style for a short girl like me (my torso is probably a little too short), but I enjoyed it.

I wore this dress for my bachelorette party in Chicago...I could not have been happier with it!!! So gorgeous!!! I wore a size 6, and I was surprised to find the top was a little big (which is shocking since I am pretty busty up top). I also wasn't a huge fan of the belt that the dress came with, so I added my own! I could not have been happier! I would highly recommend this cute little number any day!

Perfect for a holiday work event!

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I wore this dress for my husband's holiday work party - figured it was conservative enough while still being interesting and flattering. I'm petite and the dress felt short, but I think that was more due to the A-line bottom than the actual length. The white belt is perfect - it makes the dress look complete while also being functional and alllowing you to cinch in the waist/make the dress fit even better. The dress made it through a rainstorm on the way to the party and still looked fine for the rest of the night...wish I could say the same for my hair!

I rocked my college reunion with this hot number.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
This dress was more than I expected. It does a little large if you have a small chest. My only complaint was that the side of the dress without the strap kept falling down. It was a minor annoyance. With my height the dress was short, but not inappropriate. Had to be careful when I sat down! I would definitely rent this again for a more casual event where I wanted to stand out.

I wanted to love this dress, but the stitching in the bust made it too inappropriate

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
This is certainly a pretty dress, but the look was NOT cute on me, due to some very awkward stitching in the bust. I rented it for my husband's work party and, turns out, it was NSFW! I tried maneuvering the dress, wearing a different bra, smoothing out the crease -- nothing worked. So, sadly, I couldn't wear it. Love RTR, though, as I got a refund on the dress and the purse that I had rented to match it. I didn't check the size 0 to see if it had the same problem, but the picture shows me in the size 2. Weird nip aside, I probably would have gotten a 2 and a 4 if I were ordering again. Was a tad tight.

I'm a teacher and I wore this to chaperone a cruise around Manhattan with the senior class. I thought this dress was an appropriate length with just a little bit of trendy to it. It was a hit with the seniors and the other chaperones and none of the administrators had an issue with the bare shoulder. I also coach softball at the school so I loved the little belt. It looked like a cute little play on the stitches of a softball. Fit great. Great color. Totally comfortable and not too short on me.

This was 1 of 2 dresses for my 1st RTR experience for a bach party w/e. Got a TON of compliments on this dress, and the bow (that at first I didn't think I was going to like) ended up looking really cute once I saw it on! The dress is super comfy, especially for a night of drinking (in other words, won't see a bloated beer belly b/c of the a-line :-) Great dress!

I wore this dress to a wedding and I got a lot of compliments on it. It is not as short as it appears in the picture, so it was definitely wedding appropriate. The green was not as vibrant as in the photo and the strings that hold up the dress on hangers kept slipping out, which was pretty annoying. I would recommend taping the strings. Other than that, it was pretty!

I rented this dress for a trip to Atlanta to see my boyfriend. This was my first rental from rtr and it was great. I also rented the necklace that is recommended and I have to say that it really made the dress!The overall fit of the dress was great, although the top was a little big. Overall I got compliments on my dress and I didn't want to take it off!

I wore this dress for my bachelorette party on St. Patrick's Day. I loved it! The fit was great, although it was a little short (I am 5'9" but was wearing 4" heels). I probably would not have worn it for anything other than a bachelorette party because of the length. It was perfect for the night though and I received several compliments! All of my bridesmaids and even strangers now know about RTR!

I had been eyeing this dress for a while so figured I'd try it. It was in perfectly fine condition but overall I felt it was kinda "meh." Didn't really do anything for me. The belt was way yuckier than in pictures but could easily be swapped out with another or just go without.

The size 6 fit fine but was obscenely short so I wore the size 8, which was still quite short. My boyfriend did not mind this at all. It was a very cute and comfortable dress but I would not wear it again because it was so short that I had to be careful while dancing. Maybe it was just because I have long legs though.

The dress fit well in the waist and the length was perfect. However, the top of the dress was a little loose around the sleeve and fabric made the dress look loose (even though it was the right size).

bold colors and very flirty

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This was a dress I had sent to me by RTR because my original choice wasn't available. The dress was comfortable, material looked great and the fit was perfect. I usually wear a 2 (and it did fit) but I went with the 4 in the hopes of getting more length. On that note, my only warning is that it is a short dress. I read a review for someone of my similar build who said the length was longer on them and not mid thigh like on the model--well that was not my experience. It hit me mid thigh just like the model. It didn't stop me from having fun though and I received so many compliments on the dress (which always happens when I go with RTR). The green is a very pretty color and the contrast is striking. There's no way to be a wallflower in this dress!
