Everything from my transaction, to fast shipment, and easy returning!
Fits loose enough for my body type so the dress wasn't tight fitting, which I wanted a conservative fit. Dress was long enough for my height too. After I had eaten and drank a few, the flap was covering my stomach and I was self conscious of a "pudge" showing. The color is so vibrant in person and the material was comfortable the entire night.

Loved this dress! So perfect for a wedding!
Loved this dress! The bust area was slightly big but didn't matter too much. (I'm a 34D and still had some room) Like some of the other reviews the dress hit my thighs and was a little tight but nothing you can't manage. Would totally rent this dress again!

The xs was a bit snug but the small was way too big. Overall I loved this dress but the under layer has no give.

The fabric was very rich and soft. I could not be happier with the dress or RTR!
The interior portion of the dress was snug but not uncomfortable. I loved how I felt in the dress and since the material was thicker it didn't show every lump and bump.

Great experience
I should have ordered a medium (I usually wear an 'm'), but I ordered the dress on short notice, and only a small was available. It was a bit tight around the hips, and would say it fits true to size. Regardless, the dress is very forgiving, and I got a lot of complements on it . I would order this dress again !

A little tight on my big butt but I was able to sit comfortably. I wish it was made for those of us that aren't model height. Everyone loved it. It doesn't photograph that well. Looks so much better in person with the tight dress under the draping. Very sexy. I may have offended the bride by wearing red.. Oh well

Great length even for tall girls!
I rented this dress for a fundraising event and I received so many compliments. I was nervous it wouldn't be long enough, but it hit mid thigh and the swag on the other side made it appear even longer. I didn't have any issues with size, but could imagine that if you have larger hips it may be tighter and difficult to move around in. I love the single shoulder look and would definitely rent again!

Great dress!
Got dress for a NYE party and received so many compliments that night! Only thing is that dress was a little large at shoulder and chest. Usually I wear 0-2 or xs-s. Other than that it was fabulous!

:-(
I tried renting this gorgeous little number for a date night and was a little disappointed. I rented the XS and S, which is my normal size range, and immediately tried on the XS when I recieved the package. Upon trying it on I realized it was a bit too big. The underlying layer was large allover, which made the draping seem even larger....it was just wrong all around. I have a narrow figure and I just couldnt fill out the fitted part of the dress appropriately. It was such a shame too because this dress is stunning.

Very long
The color was beautiful. It was a nice rich red. The problem I encountered was the "draping" in the back was much longer than it was in the front. It might have been because I am short, but it looked odd.

Comfortable and sexy
This dress ran rather large on me. Normally a 6/M but wore the S and was still comfortable. This was a very sexy dress while still being appropriate for a family wedding. So many compliments and so much fun to wear. Easy to move for dancing :)

Lots of fabric
I loved the color of this dress but foun d myself very much between sizes. I rented the medium and large and just felt that the medium hugged my thighs and butt too much to be comfortable. I wore the large and received many compliments but wasn't entirely pleased myself -- it felt as though there was excess fabric in the draping that made it feel like I was wearing a tent. Also the L wasn't as snug around the chest area so I was pulling the side up all evening not to reveal my bra. If I were smaller through the hips I definitely would have worn the M and probably loved it.

This is really cute on, but runs about one size too big.
This is flattering, but it's was a little loose as a 6 and I have a pretty full bust. I'd order the 4 if you are a 6.

Everyone saying how much they loved my dress and how classy it was!
After going through the reviews of a lot of dresses on RTR, I felt that this dress would have the highest success rate of fitting me! I'm short and petite, and even though this dress didn't hug my body (I knew it wouldn't by reading the reviews, but I didn't want it to be tight anyways), it looked so great on! Thanks RTR for sending me a sample of your double sided fashion tape! I wore a strapless bra and because the dress was a little big, the side of it hung down too low and showed my bra. So I tapes the dress to my bra under my armpit and it was fine! I'm never going to by a dress again! Thanks RTR for making my 1st experience wonderful!

Great color and cut.
i totally loved the dress and the color. At this time I wore a 4-6 and wasn't sure how to decide between a small or medium, went with a medium and the top was too big- but since it was a flowy dress, it still looked cute.

Ran large, drape is loose.
It would have been an easy dress, except that it ran quite large. The drape is not secured, so unless the fit is more tight around your body, it hangs very loosely from your chest to midsection/legs.

This dress was definitely loose in the hips but otherwise was really comfortable and great. I'd definitely rent it again, in a smaller size.

This was a work party and all my co-workers said I looked amazing!
I really like this dress. I loved the understated red color versus bright red. I dressed it up with gold accessories and shoes. I'm 5'0 and I normally wear size 2 - 4. I ordered a small and medium back up, but the small ran large so I think an XS would have worked perfectly. I just pinned a few loose spots and it fixed the issue right up! With my height the dress hit at my knee. This dress was really comfortable to wear and I would definitely rent it again.

Lady in Red
This was my second dress so I only it had it in a size medium. It was a little loose around the bust so I think a small would have been a better choice for me. Nonetheless, this is a great dress. It was comfortable to wear and it made me feel beautiful.

Loved the compliments!
This dress is made for someone bigger on top than the bottom. I am more hourglass shaped and the bottom part of the dress fit me in the hips perfectly but the top was about 2 inches too big. A safety pin under the draping did the trick. The small fit in the bust but was way to tight in the hips. I ended up with the medium. Overall, great dress, fun color!

It is made for someone without curves. I wear a large and couldn't get it over my hips. I was very glad I had an alternative. The dress is a pretty color and I'm sure stunning on the right person.

This dress was awesome. I normally wear a medium, rented a medium and back-up large. On someone without hips it's probably true-to-size, but if you have curves, I'd size up. The large fit perfectly and got a ton of compliments. Gorgeous dress, amazing color.

Fit was awkward
I rented a M and a L in this dress... this was recommended in the bump friendly section as I am about 4 months pregnant and the M was very tight in the under section of the dress, meaning my only option was the Large, which was too big in the bust area. It was pretty but I did not end up wearing it. I would size up on this one if you are have hips but beware of the chest.

Too small in the hips
I'm 4 months pregnant and have a small bump. This dress would be adorable on someone with a larger bump, but on me it just wasn't flattering. I typically wear a size 4-6 in dresses, but the small was a bit too snug in the hips. The medium wasn't available, but I'm sure it would have worked just fine. Had to return this one, unfortunately.

Beautiful dress - strange fit
I rented this dress because it was listed as bump friendly (am currently 5 months pregnant). Pre-pregnancy I was a size 0. The small fit perfectly well in the chest but was very tight around my stomach. The medium was a better fit around my stomach but was HUGE in the chest. I think this dress is made for a bustier person. I am guessing if I wasn't pregnant, the xs would have fit me just fine. It is a beautiful color, fabric and look!

Simple, yet elegant
I chose this dress for a garden wedding and it was completely PERFECT. This fit of the dress, not the draping, was a little snug so I would say that this dress runs small to true to size. It is very easy to wear and with simple accessories and heels it was a HIT!

Hips and thighs?
The dress was beautiful however I wasn't able to wear it because it runs VERY tight through the hips and thighs. The fabric has minimal stretch and isn't very forgiving for my slightly curvy figure. I'm a size 4 in wedding gowns and other formal dresses, but the small didn't fit me because the dress is cut very straight from the hips down. Unless you have a boyish / model's figure, you should order at least one size up.

Great color and dress
I got lots of compliments on this dress, but the inner layer does run a little but small, especially around the hip and leg area. Luckily the top isn't fitted, so I could go larger and not really be able to tell. The underarm area was a little bit big, but the overlayer covered it pretty well. I would defintiely wear again! Recommend wearing with a big necklace.

I rented this dress for a wedding. There is two layers to this dress and the under layer is visible from the side view. The under layer was super tight around the hip area. Just did not fit right and my body is slim. The color is really pretty.

Meh...
This was a back up dress. The medium did not fit around my 38.5" hips. Pear shapes beware. The color was pretty, but it's not a statement dress. It's a safe dress if you're wanting to show a little leg, but hide your mid-section.
