This was my first rental and I will definitely be renting again! I'm 5'1" 108 lbs. The 0 fit almost perfectly, just a little big in the chest. Length is about 2 inches from my knees - perfect for the wedding I rented it for!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I am busty for my size - the dress fit well in the chest and stayed put without double-sided tape all over the place thanks to the boning in the bodice. While the boning lends great support, it is also uncomfortable for sitting because the ribs of the boning were sticking me in the ribs and waist during the dinner.

Great cocktail dress

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This is a great dress. I am 5'4" and somewhere between 120-125 lbs, with a 36C bust and this fit great. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for an easy, figure-flattering cocktail dress. My only problem, RTR, was there was a stain on the bust that wasn't too noticeable given the multicolored print, but it was a stain all the same. Looked like white wine had been dropped there and cleaners didn't get it out.

I rented this for Easter and was unable to wear it (You'll see in my other review I posted about the Nanette dress I wore instead). I really loved the colors in this dress and it was a fabulous fabric. As a 36D it was just not going to happen with my bust. It was too bad because this is so cute!

The dress came earlier then I expected and RTR made it easy to return. I can't wait to rent my next look!

I wore this to an afternoon wedding and it looked and fit amazing! I had to get it pressed upon arrival and noticed that the lining came past the dress in front, but a little double stick tape fixed that. Since I am a pear I was a little concerned that the lining might be tight around my hips but it fit nicely. The dress may be a little short for some but it worked for me since I have shorter legs. Overall I had a had a great experience with RTR and this beautiful dress! Looking forward to renting again!

I loved the print, but it was way too big on the top and was a bit baggy on the bottom for me. I should have ordered a size down. Instead, I wore the Noir Dancer Bodice Dress, which fit perfectly.

I wore this dress to a wedding in San Francisco and it was great! It fit really well and didn't stretch out or get uncomfortable throughout the night. The colors are so pretty and the length and fit are perfect. I wore a size 4. It definitely isn't designed for someone with a big bust though. Overall, I was really happy with it.

Cute Dress for Spring/Summer

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size

I liked this dress, but it was quite short on me and the strapless nature of it combined with being shorter than expected made it inappropriate for the wedding I was attending, so I chose to wear the other dress I rented.

Cute but not worth the hassle

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is a little shorter than i expected and slightly tight in the hip section if your a little more on the bottom heavy. Overall the dress was pretty, but the size 4 seems to be a popular size because it looked a bit worn and old. I unfortunately did not get to wear the dress because I attended a wedding out of town and the dress did not arrive before I left. Overall I'm happier I ended up wearing my back-up dress it looked nicer than this would have.

I wore this dress to an outdoor wedding in early June. The print was perfect for the season! It fit really well, but beware if you're tall - this dress will be short on you! I loved the sweetheart neckline -- it gives the dress a young, flirty style. Would definitely rent again. (P.S. Check out the bride's earrings... they're from RTR too!)

Exactly as described. Perfect

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress arrived perfectly as described. I felt it ran mostly true to size but slightly big, if anything. I usually feel short dresses are a little long for my petite figure, but this dress hit perfectly a couple inches above my knee. The fabric was cool and silky, which was great for the outdoor vineyard wedding I attended. The tying bow enables you to cinch the waist area to your desire.

Cute and Colorful.

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size

I absolutely love the colors in this dress! I wore the size 4 due to the structured band around the middle. The 2 was a bit tight around my ribcage and I knew I wanted extra space since I would be eating dinner at my charity event. Overall, the cut is very pretty and I got some many compliments the whole night. Definitely a prefect dress for the spring!

Bright and bold dress - wish it was still in my closet!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
This is a really fun dress! I loved the colors and the pattern. I also really liked that the band around the waist ties in the back in a way that is adjustable, allowing it to fit just right. The skirt is very forgiving/not fitted on the lower body. The reason I thought it ran a bit large is the top. My regular size is a 4 but the top didn't stay up. The 2 fit perfectly. The only con I can think of is that the fabric wrinkles very easily. It is one of those fabrics that as soon as you sit down once you will have lines/creases. It didn't detract from how much I loved wearing this dress, but it might bother someone more than me. Fantastic delivery/customer service as always.

The colors of the dress are more vibrant than they look in the photo, but to me that's definitely a good thing. My main complaint was with the fit--it was a bit big in the bust (and I'm a 34DD, so that was weird). But that aside, it was still able to wear it and was happy with how it looked. The dress ended up being a big hit at my sorority semi-formal!

This dress is very flattering and fits true to size but the color is a bit muted.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this dress for a friend's wedding in the summer in Washington DC. I am usually a size 2-4 and the 4 fit like a glove as the top runs a bit on the smaller size (might be harder for bustier ladies). The skirt was very flattering (didn't have that the tight inner lining that is hard on us pear shaped girls with hips). The color is a bit muted so I think it would look better on someone who has dark skin or is really tan. I didn't end up wearing this dress as this was the alternate dress I rented, but I would consider this one for a future event.

This dress is very easy to fit because of the tie in the back. The dress was perfect length on me, but I can see how it could be too short for taller women. (I'm 5'3") Overall this dress was really fun, easy to wear and I would probably rent it again.

This is a cute summer dress. I didn't have the best feeling in this dress only because it was a little too big on me (small bust, petite person) - but it was probably true to a size 0. But, it was colorful and fun.
