The dress just wasn't what I thought it would be like.

Size worn: 36
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this for a really extravagant wedding. I usually stick to the pretty floral dresses but I wanted to go more for the dramatic this time. The top actually has a weird "X" crease in the front that made my chest look awkward and the texture of the dress was annoying because the pleats had to keep getting reset. There really just wasn't any flow to it. The belt also reminded me of a karate belt. I spent a good amount of time trying to get it to look like the model but it still kept sticking up and not laying right. I ended up buying a beaded belt from a consignment store last minute to just add something to it.

I was the orangest person at my reunion! (at a school whose colours are orange and black, so lots of people were in orange :) )

Size worn: 38
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
This was a really fun dress. I normally wear a size 4, but I think the 4 (36) wasn't available so I got the 38, which actually fit very well. It was fitted in the waist and the top wasn't huge. I'm fairly small chested so anyone with a large chest might want to size up even more. The fabric has this ribbed texture to it that I didn't notice in the photos (apparently that's what faille fabric is...I didn't know that), which I really liked. It was unique and I also felt it gave the dress leeway to be a bit less dressy if desired. I found the X-shape pleating sewn in at the waist to be necessary to give the dress shape, but it would look weird without a belt covering it. The belt it comes with does look kind of like a karate belt on it's own. I think it works with the dress though and I didn't have any problems tying it. I do agree with the other reviewer that the stiffness of the fabric would make the pleats do weird things and need to be reset sometimes. Not bad enough for me to take a star away though.

I stood out from the crowd in this bright classy dress!

I rented this dress for a UF game day. The color is a beautiful bright orange and the fit is almost the same as the model. The main downside is that the top of the dress is restricting, while the bottom is too big. The material is thicker than I expected but it makes the dress look classy/sophisticated. Overall, I received compliments but I wasn't comfortable.

I was sent this dress because another one I ordered was not back from a previous renter. I hated the belt- it looked like a karate belt- but otherwise I loved the dress. I ended up not wearing it but I really did like it (minus the belt). True to size and almost to my knee.

Disappointed

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I originally ordered a different dress for my main dress and had to pick a back up at the last minute. Both happened to be from the same designer. This designer did not design dresses for fuller busted women. I usually wear an 8 and I couldn't even zip the 10 over my bust. Sadly, I had to find something in my closet because none of the three dresses fit.

Overall sweet dress- in poor shape for my order

Size worn: NONE
Overall fit: True to Size

Didn't wear- fabric was wrinkled and would've required lots of ironing to wear. The fit is true to size and it is a fun and beautiful dress, I just opted for my other option instead. Vibrant color and great for ladies with small upper body and full hips!

Bold, Structured & Dramatic

Size worn: 38
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is so well made. PRO: It has dense luxurious fabric that stays in place. The color is a knock out. I rented this to wear to a wedding as an assistant to the photographer. A storm moved the wedding indoors, but my skirt stayed in place through all the wind. CON: The strange pleats above the waist have a mind of their own. CON for RTR: As you can see, that belt was not the belt that was supposed to come with the dress. I'm sure if there had been a belt it would have been amazing. Customer service fail: I messaged them about the belt and they simply replied they would note the account. No help? I had to rush out and try to find something at the last minute. In my small town, this was the best I could do. I would rent it again for the price, but order it a couple of days in advance in case they forget the belt.

Got a lot of compliments on this dress. I loved the material and colors.

Size worn: 38
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The dress was pretty much true to size. I usually wear a 4 or a 6. The size 40 (US 6) was too baggy on the shoulders and the 38 (US 4) was a little tight on the rib cage, but fit pretty well. It is very forgiving in the hip area. The dress was wrinkly when I got it, but ironed out easily. The belt was kind of like a karate belt, which I liked because it kept its form well. The belt was neatly rolled up when I received it. Overall it was a great fit.

Fun Color!

Size worn: 40
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
The color of this dress is vibrant orange, which I absolutely adored. When i received the package from RTR, it didn't include the blue sash that is pictured. I used a skinny navy belt that I had on hand, but it definitely needs some kind of belt in the middle due to the loops. Although the color was great, the dress bunched in the middle right under the bust in a very strange way. The size 4 or (38) was just barely too small, but the fit is pretty on, I think. I would definitely rent from RTR again, but probably not this dress.
