Compliments all night!

Size worn: 14W
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I rented this dress for a casino themed Jack & Jill Party. I have never worn a 14W before, I found the dress to be a little big on me, but it may be because I usually wear a 12 or 14 regular. I wasn't in love with the shape of the dress, but maybe I just wasn't used to the style, because I did get compliments all night long on it! It had just enough sparkles to glam it up a bit without being overwhelming. I also thought it was a great value price wise. Definitely recommend it!

Lots of sparkly fun!

Size worn: 22W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This is definitely a fun party dress. Be prepared to shine! I wish it didn't snag as much on other peoples clothing but this is to be expected because of the fabric. Beware, when camera flashes go off, the sheath underneath will appear very prominently in photos. I wish the length was a tad longer, but that might be my personal preference. It will ride up a bit when you sit down. Paired it with the Kenneth Jay Lane Clear Drop earrings and it just popped!

I definitely had strangers come up to me at the charity gala and compliment me on this dress!

Size worn: 18W
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress was super comfortable! I felt beautiful in it and received many compliments! I ordered up a size due to the fact that I'm 12 weeks pregnant with my 3rd. I'm 5'7" and the dress was a little longer on me than the model in the picture. I think I probably needed a size down. Also I have very narrow shoulders so the dress was quite big on me in that area as well. None the less it was beautiful, comfortable, and I was able to adjust the dress back further to keep it on my shoulders using the bra snaps. This was my first RTR experience and it was a great one! They make it so easy.

Fit beautifully. High-quality dress. Could have probably done a 14 across the bust, but waist, hips, and arms were perfect. Received a ton of compliments!

The great service when upgrading to pro and delivering my birthday dress (with the pro bday promo)

Size worn: 16W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This dress looked so nice on! I was a little disillusioned with my sizing because both sizes I chose were too big. So I had to belt the smaller of the two but that was my fault for sizing up. The belt puffed the dress out a bit making me look fluffy in the tummy regions which I'm not, but besides that I looked and felt beautiful and was parading around Hollywood getting a myriad of compliments from strangers and friends. Now that is a perfect birthday! I will absolutely rent this dress again! I recommend it to anyone considering it.

Rented this in a 16 & 18. The 18 smelled of BO & the 16 was stale/peculiar smelling. Called RTR staff & a replacement was overnighted (sparks fly sheath). Despite the *ahem* peculiar odor of the 16, I braved it anyway because the replacement was not a good fit. All in all, I would rent again. The stylist, Alex, was amazingly helpful and understanding. What a great company & service.

The dress was exactly what I was looking for! I was a little nervous due to the fact I am never very consistent with my dress size! I did get the second size up but was much too large. So many compliments!!

So fancy

Size worn: 14W
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
It is a gorgeous dress that does run a bit large. The 16 I ordered hid what little shape I have, it "squared" me out so thankfully I followed reviewers suggestion and sized down for a backup and although the 14 was a bit snug it was comfortable enough for the evening. I got many complements and felt very fancy. Thanks RTR!

Loose and comfortable, but not super flattering

Size worn: 16W
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Was a very loose comfortable fit and the sequins were beautiful. I wasn't too fond of the dress because it wasn't as form fitting as the model is showing. More of a shift dress. My sleeves also kept snagging on the rest of the dress.

Gatsby party

Size worn: 14W
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
The dress was perfect for the party! It ran a little big and didn't really show off my figure, so in pictures I would put my hand on my hip and pull it back to show that I have a waist. But overall it was a great dress! Very comfortable...I'm 5'2 and it right right at my knees. The slip that comes with the dress is perfect and I would definitely recommend it!

Great dress for dancing, very comfortable, sparkly without being over-the- top.

Size worn: 14W
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
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.

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.

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!

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.

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. It was perfect for a winter wedding! (Sorry that I don't have a full length photo to share-- the night was a blur and we never stopped to take one!)

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 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 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 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.
