FABULOUS dress that I wore to the fall show preview at Barneys New York with Simon Doonan. (http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/Sr8mvJySyYDXSX-1TOTOaw?feat=directlink) It fit perfectly and I got a lot of complements on it.

I loved this dress! I got a ton of compliments on it and it was very comfortable. I usually would order a 2 or a 4 in a dress but the 0 actually fit perfectly. It is slightly more gold in color than in the picture where it looks white/cream colored.

This dress is beautiful. I wore it to my Homecoming 2010 and got so many compliments. It is best for someone fairly narrow and with a small to medium bust size. Overall, gorgeous dress and i would definitely recommend it!

I usually wear a 2 and the 0 ended up working for me. The dress was pretty but it ran big. I am a 32D and the top would not stay up and it was a bit to puffy. For skinny girls I would not recommend bc it looked like a bag on me. You need curves to work this dress.

I got a 6 (usually wear an 8)-the fit was tight but perfect! I am SO pleased with this dress-it was super cute, comfortable, and incredibly flattering. The pockets were a definite plus, as well. I wore this dress to a sorority formal and got a ton of compliments o it. I was pleased that it wasn't too long (hit about mid-thigh) despite my short height.

I was very happy that I read the reviews before selecting which sizes to rent. I usually wear a 2 or a 4, but the 0 fit perfectly in the waist and chest AND it wasn't too short! I was also slightly surprised by the beaded bodice, which is difficult to see in the picture but is made of mostly silver-backed clear crystals and some gold and wooden beads. However, I ended up loving the dress--it was very comfortable and made me feel like a princess!

Fun dress but runs small.

I rented this dress for NYE and loves it. It had just the perfect amount of sparkle! I normally wear a size 0 but found that a size 2 in this dress fit my frame better.

This dress was great. I wore it to a day time event at the beach, and the linen material lent an earthiness, while the gold embellishments increased the glam. It runs true to size, but because I am an extreme pear shape, with full hips and a very small bust, I wish I would have gotten a back-up size down. It worked, though!

There was a sample of my favorite Kate Spade "Twirl" perfume with my order! I had only used it in a sample size previously but had coincidentally just run out earlier in the week. I was so excited to randomly get that exact sample the night before the party!

I rented this dress for a white-themed party. I normally do not like strapless dresses at all, especially sweetheart necklines but I needed a white dress and I didn't think any of the other ones would work for my frame. I LOVED this dress- I am petite but curvy and have a larger chest and hips and this dress had plenty of room in the top for me (I wore a strapless bar just to feel a little more secure). It is very flattering around the waist and especially right under the beaded detail, that area under your belly button that people can sometimes be self-conscious of. I loved the "bubble" skirt- it was very "forgiving" of the hip area without making you look poofy or anything. The hem was an elastic (but didn't necessarily look elasticy) so it was very comfortable and not tight around the hips. I had a great RTR experience and would definitely rent a similar dress again. I was really nervous/skeptical if it would fit because I feel like I don't have a "normal" body but I felt very comfortable and confident in it.

Loved this dress, wore it to attend an outdoor summer wedding -- the colour is earthy enough to not look at all "bridal", the beading at the empire waist makes pairing the dress with a gold/copper/bronze clutch perfect. Bottom of the dress was a bit wider than I thought it would be, definitely better for curvier or pear shaped ladies.

Gorgeous, but not for a wedding. It looks white in person. Didn't wear it.

This dress is STUNNING.... but I ordered it for a wedding and couldn't wear it. Though it is decribed as gold, in person it is more white with a gold shimmer. Not appropriate for a wedding. So didn't wear it.

Really pretty dress, but just a little too short. I felt like I was constantly pulling it down. Other than that, it felt really well in the bust.

Great party dress, very pretty!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This dress fit true to size, I got the 4 and it was a bit snug but the 6 was comfortable. I generally wear a 4/6 depending on the designer, and 27/28 jean. When I got the dress, the boning was poking me and I thought I might not be able to wear it, but I was able to bend the boning back into place and it didn't bother me again. I received a ton of compliments and think this dress was a great choice for NYE!

The dress was a tad too big for me but it was the perfect 2nd dress transition for my beach wedding!

The beading and the goldish shimmer on the dress are just lovely. The looked great in person. It just happened to be a bit to big for me, especially up top.

Go a size up. I am normally a size 0-2, but I wore this dress in a size 4. The size 2 I rented would not zip up completely. I LOVE RTR! :) This was my first rental.

I loved the dress but just didn't like the way it fit me.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wasn't a huge fan of the fabric and it didn't exactly fit well for me in the bust. One size was too big, the other a tad too small. This was cute, just not the right fit for me.
