Power Purple

Talk about assertive! This sheath is definitely a statement - gorgeous purple color, fitted, but with a conservative neckline and length. I felt very first-lady! Felt pretty true to size, but was a little snug in the hips - would recommend sizing up if you are bigger on bottom!

STYLIST REVIEW!

Overall fit: True to Size

Loved this dress for any sort of work or more conservative event! It's a beautiful color and an easy fit. I didn't need to wear a bra with the dress because of the structure. Highly recommend for anytime you need to be dressed up, but casual, and look your best!

The color was stunning! I got compliments all night

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
The dress looked great and was super comfortable. The color is the biggest awesomeness of this dress for me. I wore it for a business mixer. The details may fray on this dress over time, so I was a little worried but it was a non-issue. I never know if I'm a 10 or a 12 pending the designer, in this case, I'm guessing the 10 would have been fine too based on the make.

showstopper

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size

This dress was spectacular. The knit fabric was LOVELY and the color was outstanding. One of the dresses I've rented at RTR that I just hated to return, and found myself browsing the internet later to find if I could afford it retail. You won't regret renting this outstanding number. Even with the modest neckline, the fit of the dress was incredibly sexy.

Pretty dress for winter time but not for me

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
The dress was really hard to zip up (most of my rentals have been size 10) and was completely unflattering in the stomach area. Moreover, it was a thick wool that would not have suited my occaision at all. The color is beautiful though, just wish it was a little less tight in the stomach area and less itchy.

Fits very tight in the bust, if you are big there, go up a size.

Snug, Sophisticated

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Date
Got this dress as a replacement dress for a second size that was not available (thanks RTR for your excellent customer service). Size 4 was tight but I could still breathe and enjoy a night out with my husband. Definitely more for a straight and narrow figure. Great color.

Pretty purple knit

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
This dress was suggested by my customer service rep, as my first selections didn't fit and I needed something rushed out for my event today. It's a pretty purple dress, but I think it's more appropriate for the Fall as it's a knit fabric and just didn't feel like "Spring time" to me. The fit was true to size, but my back-up was the dress that fit me better so I chose to wear that instead.

Not for those well endowed in the chest! Dress didn't fit.

Size worn: None

Not enough room in the chest and the material has no give, so no go.

Uncomfortable and not appropriate for the occasion

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
This was a back-up dress sent to me because one of the sizes for my original order was unavailable. The style of the dress is nice, but the fabric is awful. It looked and felt like one of my grandmother's old couches. It is a thick woolen material, definitely not appropriate for an August wedding. Needless to say, I did not wear this one.
