Wearing a perfect dress for the Kentucky Derby!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size

I wore this dress to the Kentucky Derby and loved it! The material was very easy and durable. The only thing i wish were different were that it fit a little better on top. I wore a strapless bra because it was a little bit baggy in areas in the bust region which was surprising after reading other reviews. I was hoping it would fit well enough without a bra-but still loved it! thanks!

I ordered the 4 and the 6, but this dress has a lot of material through the body of the dress, so I really needed a 2. I loved the dress as a whole though, and everyone couldn't stop telling me how great I looked! I wish I could have bought it! Perfect for the event.

I rented this dress for the Kentucky Derby. It was a really fun little dress, although a little bit on the short side (I am 5'6"). It is made of a cotton material that would have been great if it wasn't raining! Overall I was given a ton of compliments and it matched my fascinator perfectly!

Love love loved this dress! It was perfectly preppy, and classy. My only gripe is the elastic top only gives so much - the 0 fit me perfectly but it was hard to pull on/off since there isn't a zipper. The 2 was more comfortable and was easier to slip on/off, but the elastic was too loose around the top. Other than that, the lining is great, and the fit is super flattering.

Comfortable and I loved the pockets!

Size worn: 2

I am normally between a 2 and a 4 so those were the two sizes I ordered. I tried the 2 first, and it fit well with a little room to spare. Once I got the dress on, it stayed put but I did double stick tape the neckline because otherwise it wouldn't have looked right (you couldn't see that it was a sweetheart neckline). I didn't realize the dress was a lightweight cotton so it was more casual than I expected and is getting a little worn. Still, it looked great in pictures and was fun to wear. Great for a summer event!

The perfect dress for a nice dinner date on our tropical vacation.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Vacation
This was my first RTR rental & I was happy with my experience. I rented this dress in a size 4, which is my typical dress size, but I picked the size 6 as my back up. I'm so glad that I got a larger size as my back up. The band at the top of the dress was pretty snug & it was difficult for me to get the size 4 over my broad shoulders & back. The size 6 slipped on more easily, but was not so loose on top that I felt like I was pulling at it constantly all night. I wasn't in love with the fit at the bottom; it's wider than how it looks in the pictures, & that's just not my taste. (It made me look a little wider than I really am.) BUT the colors were PERFECT for a beach vacation in Key West, FL, & the fabric was SO comfy & breathable that even though I didn't feel the dress flattered my figure as much as I would have liked, I will still consider renting it again. It was super easy to dress up & down for day & night wear!

I rented this dress for a wedding reception in Nashville.

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was very comfortable and light weight cotton, with a liner. The top was not as fitted as I'd hoped, mostly through the mid section. The sweetheart neckline was also elastic - there was no zipper. A little different than what I was expecting, but I loved the pattern and it was very easy to wear.

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Super flattering and I got so many compliments on it - both at the event & facebook pics later! Although it runs pretty much true to size, the waist was a bit big. I have an hourglass shape though so that might be why. Other than that it was perfect and I did not want to give it back!

Overall fit: True to Size

Oh this dress is super cute! The fit is a little tight through the chest (I'm busty with a small waist), and I couldn't even fit the size 4 over my shoulders. There is no zipper so if you've got some curves, order true to size or a size larger. I got so many compliments on this dress, it's fun, flirty, and has pockets! Always a plus in my book!

The fit was good, a little short for my 5'6" frame. The pockets were amazing. Again, it is very short, I felt uncomfortable wearing tall heels. I ended up wearing flats most of the night. The colors are so vibrant and perfect for summer. I would recommend this dress, especially for petites.

Fun & Flirty

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Loved the fun colors and easy wear of this dress. It was darling and received lots of complements. It was great to have to wear just once, because it makes a memorable statement. Thank you RTR. I have a larger rib cag/chest and a small waist. I'm an 8-10 on top and a 6-8 on the bottom. This was very complementary to those of us who are a not a specific size all over. It does not have a zip closure, but rather stretchy material on the back. It is really nice when you're inbetween sizes. However on a negative note, because of my heights (5' 11) it hit in a funny place on my hips/waist so it rode up a little bit and I had to continue pulling it down at the waist and up at the chest. It wasn't a big deal and most likely had to do with my height.

Super comfortable dress. Really forgiving for a postpartum mom!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I really liked this dress. It was super comfortable and very forgiving in the lower waist/hips so I could hid my post pregnancy belly. The back is ruched which I didn't expect making it a little on the casual side. It was a little loose. I probably could have gone down a size.

My favorite thing about the dress was it went from drowned rat to it's shape within minutes!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This dress was adorable. I had ordered the size 8, and the size 10 - the size 10 wasn't going to be available last minute. The only issue I had is that I wasn't able to wear a strapless because I couldn't breath.. but the back of the top is stretchy and I could comfortably (and confidently) go without. I highly recommend this dress.. I have a hard time hiding my hips, and this dress didn't make me look like an elephant. I typically wear a 10 in Lilly and have them altered to fit, but this dress was actually perfect, who wants to wear an uncomfortable strapless bra anyway?! I couldn't find a pair of shoes that matched perfectly.. so I wore a pair of cheap, plain white flip flops and they were fine. Something else to note - these photos were after we got caught in the rain, the dress got soaked but dried extremely quickly.

I loved this dress! I will definitely rent it again. It fit great, was very comfortable, and looked good. I have no complaints about it! The top stayed up and I never once had to adjust. I didn't wear a bra under it. It has a casual look to it so I wore it for the groom's dinner the night before a summer wedding. It was perfect for that cocktail party! My boyfriend commented that it looked like a pin-up style which he liked.

Was a little shorter than anticipated but overall a great casual sundress. Definitely needed to be ironed when it arrived. There are no zippers as the back is stretchy so pulling it on can be a little challenging! It also looked a little worn/faded but nothing too noticeable.

I wore this dress for a Wedding Rehersal dinner that was on the casual side and lost count of the compliments I received! I was walking on the streets past a bar and even got a compliment from a complete stranger! I have a larger bust so was a little nervous about a strapless dress and although the dress didn't have built in support or boning, wearing a strapless bra was fine.

I wore this dress for my Bridal Shower and got a ton of compliments! It was comfortable and a great length for me since I am petite. Might be short on taller women. Also, my bust is very large and since there was no zipper, it was hard to get over it, but once I did, the dress fit like a glove. i don't think you can go wrong with this dress.

This dress runs a little big- my size fit but I could probably have fit into a 4 more snuggly (since the back is stretchy).

I wore this for my backyard Couple's Shower and it was perfect! There's no zipper, but the back of the bodice is stretchy so it fit like a glove. And because of the stretch I bet it would fit someone one size smaller or larger than me. I did not need to wear a bra with this dress because I felt comfortable in it and didn't need the extra support. I never had to worry about pulling up the top of the dress either...stayed right in place! The length of the skirt was comfortable and the pleating with underskirt give it just enough oomph underneath. Loved it!

Adorable and versatile! I wore this dress to a wedding brunch with a navy cardigan and then wore it to a Memorial Day rooftop BBQ later in the day with sandals. It worked great for both and I received several compliments on the fun nautical stripes. I usually wear a size 6, but the 4 fit much better and didn't slip down. I recommend ordering down a size as a back up because the top doesn't have any boning. It's definitely a more casual dress, perfect for outdoor summer events!

This dress fit true to size- I am tall 5'7 and I did think that it was a little short, but overall I LOVED the dress! It has pockets so I was able to have my phone and keys on me while in my graduation robe, and because it is cotton I didn't get too hot sitting outside. I loved that the back is elasticized so it stayed up well for a strapless dress, and I didn't feel like I was going to fall out of it or have to keep pulling the dress up all day!
