Overall fit: Small
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.

Overall fit: True to Size
I thought this dress ran true to size. I am usually a medium but I went with the small so that the dress would fit a little tighter underneath. I agree that it was a little tight around the hip area - but I liked that it showed off my curves on the side. I received a ton of compliments with this dress on. I would definitely rent it again.

comfortable but sexy.

Size worn: XS
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
i'm 5'9, 127lbs, between a 2 and a 4 but with broad shoulders, and a slightly broader rib cage for my otherwise small frame. the xs fit perfectly (which is good because they were out of the small). if you are between sizes i would recommend either sticking to your size or going down if you need to. since the underpart of the dress is fitted it's nice to have it a little tighter than not. it's also definitely a blue red and the fabric is a really nice matte. very versatile.

Flattering and Fabulous

Size worn: L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Wore to a formal work function and received dozens of compliments. The actual dress (non drape) is much tighter than I thought it would be, so if you're curvy you may want to go a size up. Other than that, great dress!

Fit was awkward

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
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.

Beautiful, but...

Size worn: L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
This was my first RTR rental, and I was so excited to receive such a beautiful dress! I was disappointed, however, that when I tried the dress on, it fit perfectly everywhere except my hips. Such a bummer! If you are a "hippy" girl, I'd suggest ordering your normal size and a size up for your back-up.

Too small in the hips

Size worn: S
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
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

Size worn: S
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
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

Size worn: M
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
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?

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
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.

Beautiful and flattering dress

Size worn: S
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I rented this dress for my Christmas Party... and even though I couldn't attend last minute, my boyfriend took me out to dinner so I could have the opportunity to wear it. I got compliments from people all night long! It was absolutely stunning!!! I hope to rent it next year. I am 5'10, 135lbs with a 32DD and size 2-4 pants and I ordered a small. It fit like a glove, literally. The picture makes it look loose, but it's not. The dress is basically two layers, a tight dress with a looser fabric draped over the top like a toga, for lack of a better description. When you stand facing front, it looks as pictured. But when you turn to the side, it revels the separation in the fabric and the tight dress underneath. It's very hot! It's also a bit shorter than described. It came a little higher than mid-thigh. Because I am so skinny I avoid flowy dresses because I look like I am wearing a tent... this dress, with it's two layers, was perfect!

Great color and dress

Size worn: L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
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 to wear to a law school formal event. This dress was actually my back up dress but when it arrived I fell in love with it and wore this one instead of my first choice. I got complements all night!!! beautiful color red. i ordered the small because i was nervous about the chest fitting, the small fit fine but a little big on the top so i think i could have gotten away with the XS. i loved wearing this dress!

:-(

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Date
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.

Perfect Dress for a Wedding

Size worn: M
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this dress for a February wedding. I requested both a Small and a Medium size since I typically wear a smaller size. The small fit perfectly through the top but was quite tight around my thighs, especially when I sat down. The medium was a bit loose around the bust line, but a few strips of double-stick tape held everything in place and gave me the extra room in my thighs necessary to sit down. Overall it was a great dress and I received a lot of complements.

LOVED IT

Size worn: S
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I loved this dress as soon as I saw it! I was super excited when it arrived because it is even sexier in person! You can't really tell from the pictures but the side with no sleeve is not draped and actually reveals a fitted sillouette which is a nice contrast to the draping on the other side of the dress. I'm short but this dress wasn't too long on me (which was my biggest concern with the order). It fit perfectly and it was perfect for a wedding or fancy night out! I wore it with gold accessories.

Perfect Dress for a Party

Size worn: L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This dress is such a great deep red. Looked fantastic with killer heels. The inner dress is pretty tight (even for a L) but the way the outside fabric hangs keeps you from feeling self-conscious. Instead, you feel absolutely self-confident. I got compliments from a dozen strangers even before I reached the party.

not good for pregnancy!

Size worn: S
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
i rented this dress for my 8th month of pregnancy and was told (incorrectly) the dress would work for pregnant women- definitely not! pre-pregnancy i am a size 0 and did not gain a lot of weight during my pregnancy and i couldn't even begin to zip it. Neither the small nor the medium would remotely zip. RTR later apologized and sent me another dress that worked much better. They did a great job of handling the problem. It was a very pretty dress however and would have probably looked very cute for nonpregnant women.

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.

I chose this dress as my primary for my 33rd birthday. It has an amazing color and the fabric feels great. I was unable to wear it because my hips where too tight but I have a really wide hip compare to the rest of my body and this fabric has no stretch as compared to the Mark and James Draped Dream Dress which has a lot of give and better fit if you have wide hips . Too bad I could not wear it because its truly a beautiful dress.

Loved the color. Fabric is nice as well. The inside layer of the dress is somewhat fitted, but the overall look is very... well, not fitted :) That's a no-brainer I guess, I should have known. But I kinda wish it was a little more flattering. I tried putting on a gold belt over it, and just didn't look good, so wore it without a belt. It's a nice dress, but not sexy.

I wore this dress to a nice dinner with my boyfriend's parents while we were in Vegas. Not only was I stopped twice during dinner to ask where I got my dress, but people were stopping me while walking through Las Vegas hotels and even on the Strip! This dress is incredibly flattering and definitely a show stopper. Would definitely recommend! The fit was true to size and the under part of the dress fits snug to the body, which is visible on the left side. Overall I was extremely pleased with this dress.

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.
