One of the few dresses that created cleavage out of my b cup. I am usually a 2-4 and wore the size 8. Loved the color with a tan!

Extremely pretty and well made, but the sizing is misleading. According to the converter I should have worn a UK 6. I needed a UK 8 but didn't rent the backup size. Loss on my part.

This dress was absolutly amazing! I wore it to my senior prom and it looked fabulous. It runs a little small, but luckily I got a back up size so I ended up wearing the 8. I loved it and highly reccomend it!!

I LOVED this dress! I wore it to a wedding in June and it was perfect!! I usually wear a 4/6, so I ordered the 6(10) and the 8(12) after everything I had read from the reviews before and the 10 fit like a glove!! Its even more beautiful in person and I had countless compliments all night long!! If you are considering this dress, GET IT!! Its definitely a showstopper!!

BEAUTIFUL DRESS! I usually wear a 2-4 and wore the size 8 in this dress. It has a corset top that fit perfectly when first putting on, but after eating and drinking at a wedding, it was very tight by the end of the night. Probably best for a small bust. I got tons of compliments and loved this dress!

I got this dress by default because one of my dresses did not come in the size I needed, so really this was a last minute backup. This dress is gorgeous. I am 5'2" and weight about 112 lbs. Again, because of the mixup, they sent the size 0 and I could not zip the dress. I asked my husband to help and he couldn't get it past half way. I think the 2 would have fit, but if I rented it again, I would probably order the 2 & 4 to make sure. But it really was so pretty and I could tell by holding it up it was going to be so flattering!

Every dress I've rented I've gotten so many compliments on and I always feel great in them! The best part is if it doesn't fit you can return it and get your money back!

Absolutely stunning dress. It was so comfortable to wear and the fit was amazing. I'm just over 5 foot and I was nervous about it being too long, but it hit right above my knee-- I wore the dress with high platforms and it was perfect! Definitely worth the price - I wish I could buy it!

I rented this dress for New Year's eve and loved it! There is a built in corset so no bra is necessary. It runs very small so make sure you order at least one size up. I'm a size 4 and ordered the size 10.

I received a lot of compliments on the dress. The color is great for a summer wedding!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I'm normally a size 4/6 so I ordered the size 10 (8) after reading previous reviews that the dress ran small. When the dress arrived the color was beautiful and it fit perfectly. There is a built in corset in the dress so there is no need to wear a bra. But as soon as I put it on, I noticed one major problem: the boning on the corset of the dress is completely poking through along the left side which made it very uncomfortable to wear. Luckily, I was able to rig it by applying Band-Aids where the boning was poking through to help secure it in place, otherwise I wouldn't have been able to wear the dress. I would have thought all dresses are properly inspected before they are shipped but apparently not in this case. But once the dress was on and everything was secured, it looked fantastic.

Perfect dress for a summer wedding - it's a traditional style, with some fun, colorful details that make it even more beautiful in person. Received lots of compliments on how unique and adorable the dress was. Loved it!

I rented this dress for my brother-in-law's wedding and loved it! The dress was a beautiful color, beading on the pockets was a fun detail and I received lots of compliments. It definitely ran small, since I'm normally a size 4/6 and couldn't zip the size 8 (thank goodness for the second size option). Overall, a great first experience with RTR - would rent again!

While I really LOVE the service that RTR provides there was a corset that zipped inside and then an exposed zipper. My corset was broke and didn't have a way to zip it up. Also the dress kept folding over at the top exposing the satin colored inside. I received lots of compliments at the wedding but wouldn't choose this style to rent again. It also is short (I'm 5'9")

This dress was such a smash hit, I felt like a million bucks! There were some tailoring issues, and I was slightly concerned about having a wardrobe malfunction, but everything was fine.

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I felt like a princess at my 30th birthday party, but the dress had some issues. 1. It seems to have been designed for a flatter chest. I felt a little smushed. 2. The zipper on the corset was broken. 3. I think it was steamed incorrectly; the pleats on the bodice were a little wonky and the top rolled over slightly to reveal the satin lining. My experience was still very positive….4 stars for the beautiful color, flattering fit and amazing embellishments! It's girly boho chic at it's finest and I had a great time rocking this dress for a very special occassion!! I wore it with a Kate Spade necklace which I own, but is available on RTR! Really worked with the embellished pockets.

Gorgeous Dress

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this to a wedding and got SO many compliments. It is really flattering and a very fun dress! It does run small, and the boning was a bit messed up on my dress, but I think that they are going to fix that. It was a bit painful, but once I put some bandaids around the parts that were sticking out it was fine!

I am extremely petite and thought that this dress may be okay. Typically the length runs long on me, but this dress was very large overall. Also, for the retail price of this dress it just didn't look that nice or special. I didn't end up wearing it.

My favorite part of the whole "renting the dress" is that no one has the same dress!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
Loved this dress just a few things to keep in mind when considering. IT RUNS SMALL!! If I had to make one criticism about the dress it was that the top of the dress continued to "roll over" the entire night exposing the inside satin lining. The dress was absolutely beautiful and I received compliments all night long about it. When I put on the dress it was apparent the inside corset zipper had been broken and no longer zipped properly. Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to reorder another dress and pined it in order to fit properly. Not wanting to be charged for the defective zipped I called RTR on my way to the event and told them my solution. The women apologized for the condition of the dress many times and reassured me I would not be charged for the damaged zipper.

The pink is brighter in person, the dress runs small though and is very tight since there is corset included in the dress. This makes sure the dress stays in place but was tight on my small chested frame.

Unique Dress

I wore this dress for a beach wedding and received tons of compliments! I am in between a size 6 and 4 so went up a size. The 12 was a little big for me and I think the 10 would have been prefect! Just make sure you order up a few sizes and you will fall in love with this dress!

eh...

I had seen the dress in person before and loved it but the one that came to me really looked worn.The plastic ribbing in the bodice was broken and stabbed me all night and the zipper was broken so my friend seriously had to sew me into it. The sizing was weird. I have NEVER had an issue with my sizing on other orders but if you have a chest at all your pretty screwed size wise on this one. Your actual size you usually wear will be to tight up top and the larger size will fit your bust but be super loose in the waist.

Amazing pocket details! The dress is tiny at the top, but gives great cleavage. Larger after the waist.
