Stylist Review!

Size worn: 14W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
I really like this style! The slip underneath is a little more fitted, but not tight enough that shapewear is necessary. The sequin overlay is great and it hides any imperfections. The sequins aren't uncomfortable and I was able to move freely, so it would be a great style for a wedding and would not hinder your ability to dance the night away! The colors is fun and unexpected. The length was also perfect. I would definitely rent this style!

The perfect sparkly dress for a glitter/sequin themed bachelorette party in San Francisco!

Size worn: 16W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This dress was comfortable! And a very flattering fit on my tall, curvy frame. I probably could have worn a 14W but this was my first rental and I ordered the 18W as a backup. Not necessary! The only downside was that the sequins kept catching on themselves in the arms or on other people. An excuse to brush up against someone new? ;)

Very pretty, comfortable, and not too revealing cocktail dress.

Size worn: 18W
Rented for: Formal Affair
Loved this dress. It's very lightweight and would be fine for summer despite the long sleeves and dark color. It's extremely comfortable to wear overall and looks elegant. Also liked that it's not too revealing so it works great for formal work events where you need to maintain a professional yet festive appearance. Runs true to size but is a little roomy in the waist.

Pretty dress!

Size worn: 16W
Rented for: Wedding
The dress was a great fit and very pretty in person. It isn't form fitting at all so it doesn't really give you any "shape" it's just sort of boxy. I didn't realize the slip underneath had hooks to hook to your bra strap until I already had it on for 3 hours - they then helped because the straps did keep slipping. If you have large upper arms be careful because there's not much stretch in that area. I'm 5'9" and the dress fell right above my knees.

A lot of compliments!!

Size worn: 14W
Rented for: Wedding
The fit was nice. It felt like it hid all the flaws. I like that it was sparkly. The dress was 2 pieces, the under piece was all black and the top piece almost felt like it was crocheted. The dress covers everything. I wish the underdress was a little more revealing. I like a little bit of cleavage. The dress ran a little bit on the larger size. I do wear a 14 regularly but the dress looked a little frumpy on me and I do have curves. All in all it was a good choice for a wedding. Very comfortable.

Size worn: 20W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress is beautiful and extremely comfortable. I felt like I could have probably worn the 18, but had not selected that as an option. I did feel the sequins on the underside of my arms, but it didn't bother me. I really enjoyed the length - not too short, not too long.

Felt so glamorous!!!!!

Size worn: 16W
Rented for: Formal Affair
I rented this for my daughter's sorority formal. I loved the dress and felt beautiful in it! Received so many compliments on it! I rented the 16 and got the free 14 because I read that the dress runs a bit big. It does run big through the chest and shoulders if you're not a big-busty girl. I wore the 16 inner tank dress and the 14 outer sequined dress and it was fabulous! I will rent it again in November for a cruise!

Star of the night!

Size worn: 16W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I ordered this dress for a small birthday dinner at a local wine house. Delivery was prompt as usual. The dress has a loose fit, but I will still say its true to size. I wanted to be glamorous and comfortable. This dress was it. The only slight problem occurred when sitting on the restaurant couches. The dress kept riding up and I had to adjust myself a few times. This could really just be a tall girl problem. One thing to note, the sequins are much shinier than they show in pictures. I definitely stood out in the crowd!

High quality designer dress at an inexpensive price.

Size worn: 14W
Rented for: Wedding
Loved this dress. It's 2 layers. I ordered a size 14 and a size 16. The 14 fit nicely but since I do lave larger thighs & booty. I felt the size 16 was more appropriate for a wedding. The top around the bust and shoulders was too large on me though for a size 16. The top layer with all the detailing I wore a size 14 because the size 16 would of been huge. Overall the dresses came on time. Were clean. Had a few snags but nothing noticeable. Everything was simple, easy to follow. Just put everything in the prepaid envelope & drop off at UPS. I would order this dress again in a heartbeat!

LOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE!!

Size worn: 22W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress is a stunner! With my hair up and some bangin accessories (silver mesh glam clutch and Ainsley earrings from RTR), black peep toe heels, the whole look was amazing. We went to a gala fundraiser which was semi-formal; even amongst all the lovely dresses I received a TON of compliments. the dress is very high quality and quite comfortable as well. A few notes--as others have said the dress is in two pieces. The one I received had all the little straps and snaps so I was able to attach the liner to my bra and the overlay to the liner, but I would recommend not trying to get dressed alone--I needed a lot of help to keep stuff from snagging. All in all I had a very good experience with RTR and look forward to renting again!

Loved this dress! It was very comfortable and was prettier in person than in the photo on the site. Loved the detail.The back dips into a V, but not so much that you can't wear a regular bra - added a nice sexy element. I wore this to a fundraiser dinner and it was perfect. Would definitely rent this again.

I loved this dress. I received many compliments and it fit comfortably. The lining is shorter than the outer part overlay of the dress and the lining was above my knee and I'm on 5'1" so if you're tall it may be a little short on you. The color is a beautiful charcoal grey and just the right amount of sparkle that it didn't look gaudy.

I wore this a friend's RetroWedding. They appreciated my attempts at the 20's.(It's all in the accessories.) This dress was a bit too big for me, so i threw on a belt and pulled the fabric over it. Perfect to hide all the not so toned parts. :) I would absolutely wear it again.

I rented this dress for New Years Eve. I wasn't 100% sold on it when leaving my apartment but as soon as I got downstairs I received compliments over it. I would recommend wearing a slip underneath. As you can see by the picture the lighting sometimes made the shimmer grey see through. Overall I was very happy with the dress and would recommend it. I rented the 16W and it was a tiny bit large. Not enough for a different size though.

I felt great in this dress that I rented for a bachelorette party! I did rent the 14 & 16. I ended up wearing the 16 slip with the 14 sparkle overlay. The length was perfect and it paired nicely with tights and booties. I was complimented all night.

I have an apple figure (the bottom of my apple is a little bigger than the top of my apple, but you get the idea), and this dress was really a hit. It was a smudge snug on me, but with my Spanx, it was wearable. The sheath portion did ride up a little here and there since it's not at all attached to the netting portion. The dress is so pretty though and I got a ton of compliments. I did wish it was a little more fitted at the waist, but it was still good.

I only experienced minor snagging, which some of the other reviewers mentioned. It didn't bother me very much. The two layers of this dress make it extremely comfortable and flattering.

Should have ordered a size down for my back-up

Size worn: NONE
Rented for: Wedding
I got the 16W as my back-up to the 14W, and both were too big. Overall, the dress was ok, but not what I had hoped for my coworker's NYE, black-tie optional wedding. Just not dressy enough, especially since the 14W, which close to fit, has a pull on the left breast. I also felt the liner was ill-fitted to the dress -- the silhouettes didn't seem to match very well. I ended up liking the look of the 16W liner with the 14W dress the best (the liner fit better under the back zipper and went a little further down the thigh), but the dress was still too big. I would, given a dress without pulls, likely wear it in a 12 (maybe with a 14 liner?) for some other occasion, like a holiday party.

Super sparkly! I felt Glamorous!

Size worn: 16W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was pretty and made me feel glamorous. The pros - The lacy overlay was very forgiving. It concealed the things I don't like about myself. Having just had my 3rd baby, I like to keep my tummy hidden. It sparkles just right. The length was perfect. The dress was loose enough that I could dance and sit down and not be uncomfortable! The cons - The dress had a smell to it. I don't know if it was the chemicals from the dry cleaning or what, but it wasn't very pleasant. I tried to mask it with some perfume and no one seemed to notice the foul smell. The dress fit perfectly except at the top. It gaped a little in the back, which I noticed through out the evening when I was sitting down. Overall, I got a ton of compliments on the dress and I would wear it again. This was my first RTR experience and everything was great! Can't wait to rent again!

I have been recently loosing weight so when I received the dresses on Thursday they were too big. I called RTR and they overnighted me a smaller size. It arrived just in time. Although it was still a little big it looked fabulous. I felt amazing in the dress and got a lot of compliments. The only thing I want to mention is the material catches very easily so I was extra cautious. Otherwise LOVED this dress.

My first RTR experience and I can't wait to rent another dress - the process was so easy! The dress was very comfortable. I'm 5'1" and wore 4 inch heels to gauge length in photo. I wish a 12w existed, the 14 was a bit too roomy but still received compliments all night. Was able to wear regular bra, the back is v cut but not too low. The quality is excellent, and the color is an exquisite gun- metal grey which helped me stand out a bit. The dress I was sent was brand new with tags.
