Fun party dress
I wore this for my birthday and it was a fun dress to wear out. I even was able to throw on a sweater to make it work appropriate for earlier in the day. The only slight negative -- it might have been the gold belt, but something about it made it feel a bit like a Grecian costume.

Dress fit well, was perfect for a wedding and the whole process was easy and convenient.
The smallest part of this dress was the waist, otherwise I probably could have sized down but thank goodness I have a larger bust because you really need that to fill out the top. The size 6 (which is my normal) size fit very well though and I'm very happy with how it looked!

Loved the gold belt and buttons on the back.

Fun color and flirty style!
Wore for a party in Vegas. Fun and flirty in a reddish/orange color. I am usually an 8-10 but the 6 was all that was available. Although it was a tighter fit, it was still fine and I enjoyed wearing it and got lots of compliments!

Dress is darling! Love the style. However, there is no give in the waist which rides a bit high
Perfect little cocktail dress! The waist is high with no stretch...to be comfortable you may want to go up a size.

Great color and fun to wear
I selected this dress when my original dress was unavailable and my order was being shipped. RTR contacted me to select another dress free of charge. I wore this dress twice as I had rented it for 8 days. Once to a benefit auction in my town and again while on vacation in Jamaica. It worked well for both events. For the auction, I wore it with a black velvet blazer and brown boots. In Jamaica, I wore it with gold sandals. As previous reviewers noted, the dress is tight when getting over your hips, but once on, I had no problems. I do wish that it had little loops with snaps to hold bra straps in place.

Great color and perfect to wear for a wedding!
I'm usually a size 8, but this dress ran big so I had to go with the 6, which was still a bit big because I have a smaller bust. The color is fantastic! I rented the recommended necklace as well which weighs a ton but compliments the dress well.

Very comfortable, great quality.
Great fit. Loved the button detail on the back. The only complaint I have is that there are no little Snaps to hold your bra in so the straps at the shoulder peek out a bit.

Loved this dress! I got many compliments!
I ordered this dress for a rehearsal dinner. I ordered two sizes and was surprised to find that the smaller size fit. I was nervous because other reviews said it was tight around the hips, but I didn't find that to be the case at all. The buttons over the zipper were a nice touch. I also found that the dress could be dressed up or down based on the accessories.

Great comfortable fit! Perfect for warm occasions and a beautiful color!!!
I fit into a 10 but since I was at a wedding and there would be dancing and eating I decided I wanted to be comfortable so I went a size up to a 12. It was perfect, true to size, light weight and the color pops!!! I highly recommend it for warm outside events and it's true, there is no give on the belt/waist so if you aren't sure go up a size. Also great if you have a fairly large bust. Pair it with the necklace RTR has or your own gold jewelry and it goes either built in belt. I loved this dress!

Great customer service
This dress is super comfortable. It's true to size with a little wiggle room. I like how it's loose on the torso without looking like a potato sack. I wish I had a picture of the back. It has cute buttons that give it more detail. Great summer/fall color too!

Beautiful Rehearsal Dinner
It's a beautiful dress but like other reviews have said, the top definitely runs big. I wore this to a rehearsal dinner. It was a very hot evening so this dress was very comfortable. It was very flowy and other than on the top, it fell very well. Even with the baggier top, I still got a few compliments on the dress. This would be best for someone with a larger chest or longer torso. It really is a great color!! I wouldn't rent this again, but have no regrets whatsoever.

Too small in waist, didn't wear.
This was a cute dress that I was going to wear to a fancy bridal brunch, but the waist was too tight. I could stand, but not sit, and I wanted to be able to sit and EAT! I do carry some weight around my stomach, so if you are a similar body type, size up, but if you have sweet abs, this size would be great. Room up top for busty gals.

Fit perfectly. Like other reviews said, it is not fitted on top so there was some extra fabric but it didn't look bad. It would work well for women with a larger chest.

Casual, sexy, tasteful, would definitely rent again! Easy to dress it up and down!
I fluctuate between 8-10-12 depending on weight (sadly). I tried it on at the RTR store and planned on wearing the 10 but the 12 fit better with the included attached belt. I initially rented this for college reunion but couldn't go so I wore it to a wine tasting date with a friend. Perfect for spring/summer! I'll definitely rent this again!

Very pretty!! Loved this dress! Perfect for a rehearsal dinner!
It fit true to size and was actually a little tight! But I wore it anyways to a rehearsal dinner! I loved the buttons in the back and the pretty gold belt. It has beautiful details. I wore wedge sandals with it because the rehearsal dinner was more casual, but you could definitely dress it up with dressier heels. Can't go wrong with this cute dress!

Strange Fit
Dress is very pretty but the fit was not flattering on this pear-shaped girl. The belt hit me at a strange place and made my middle look way bigger than it actually is. The color is nice but just wasn't for me.

Great color, really loose on top
The top is pretty loose. I wear an 6-8 depending on where the waist hits. The 6 was a little snug in the waist, but bearable. The top half on the 8 was SUPER baggy. However, I got tons of compliments on the color, it was comfortable, and the necklace (also RTR) was perfect!

Cute & Comfy
I wore this dress to a bar mitzvah and it's after party, and it was cute and pretty comfortable. I often wear a size 8, but went with the size 10 because it gave me a little more room for my hips. I would absolutely rent this again. It was modest enough to be appropriate for synagogue services, but still fun. I wore it with a cardigan during services.

I felt like a beached whale at my sister-in-law's rehearsal dinner because of this dress.
Really pretty dress with a potentially very flattering shape on any body type but in reality, it was extremely short in the waist. I normally wear a 6, and the size 6 fit well everywhere else, the size 8 was slightly large on me, but on both dresses the waist was about 2 in. above my natural waist and was very unflattering. I ordered and paid for a size 10, and the dress was just baggier everywhere else, the waist was still sitting quite high. I was pretty disappointed, I looked like I weighed about 20 lbs more than I do because the gold belt was sitting between natural waist and empire waist. :(

Flowy and perfect for a semi-cold day for our couples shower.
It was a great dress for my (now) husband and my couples' shower as it was flowy and a great length with jean leggings. I wore tan boots that matched the belt that comes on the dress. I paired it with my own navy and cream necklace and some gold/sparkly bracelets. Everyone kept telling me how much they loved the dress and how it fit like a glove. I loved the button detail in the back. The only complaint is that I wish the belt had been adjustable as I have a long torso, so it kind of hit me a little weird. But it was very flattering and I loved the flutter sleeves! I would purchase this dress if I could!

The fit was good, slightly snug on the waistband but nothing unreasonable. Otherwise it was flattering and I felt good in it. I thought it was easy and fun to dress up with gold jewelry and shoes.

Fantastic, eye-catching red - a festive party number!
I rented this for a holiday party and had the fortunate opportunity to tour Jay's Garage the same day. It performed all day and evening long! It's a beautiful cut that would likely work with most body types. I found it to be a little large in the waist, so in retrospect I might have gotten away with a size smaller. The sleeve detail makes for sleek arm photos - a little bonus! Needless to say, I had a blast in this dress!

Beautiful color!!
This was actually my back up dress so I didn't end up wearing it... But I will absolutely be renting it for another occasion. Only word of caution for us larger busted ladies is that the waist ends up a little higher than you'd think. But the color is so stunning it's hard not love it!

The color was perfect.
The dress is adorable. The bodice was loose fitting but not over-sized. The skirt was flattering and the belt sat at my natural waist. I would recommend this dress.
