Great color

I ordered this dress as a back up for a NYE party. The colors are amazing and it's definitely a flattering cut, but I ordered the 10 (usually a size 4, sometimes a 6-- never a 2) and it was too big. I am a b cup and it was too big in the chest too. I would recommend size down with your extra.

My brother's girlfriend loved this so much she rented it the next weekend for her friend's engagement party!

I rented this for my cousin's rehearsal dinner, and it couldn't have been more fabulous. The only downside is that it has absolutely zero stretch so was a tad annoying to sit in for a long period of time. I would definitely rent this again for a cocktail party!

It was so nice to take my boring black graduation gown off and have this vibrant dress on underneath!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
I rented this dress for graduation, and was incredibly happy with it. It fit perfectly, although I would caution anyone with a larger booty or legs because there isn't much give on the bottom portion (the bottom almost has the fit of a tulip skirt, but not quite as dramatic). It was also quite comfortable, considering I was moving throughout the entire day. There are both gold and silver embellishments in the neckline, so either color jewelry would work (I went with gold). Would definitely recommend this for any type of semi-formal affair!

Dress is conservative but stands out. The fabric and color are a perfect match. Excellent dress for a wedding.

Amazing dress, perfect fit

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
This dress is absolutely stunning and I wish I owned it. The other reviewer who described it as eye-catching yet appropriate is exactly right. I wouldn't say it runs small, but it's a true fit and has no stretch so I'd order a size up if you are at all between sizes. Since there is no stretch and the bottom is narrow, your range of motion is somewhat restricted (no cartwheels or splits on the dance floor). This may be the only RTR dress I ever rent more than once!

Loved it! The color, the fit, the style, everything!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this for a rehearsal dinner and it was great. I got so many compliments. It was super easy, too, with no accessorizing necessary. The color was my favorite thing about the dress, it was so vibrant. I ordered a 6 and there wasn't much room to spare. If I was any taller it may have been too short, and it was a little too snug in the chest area, but it looked fine.

This dress was absolutely gorgeous.

Size worn: 14
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I loved this dress. The color is spectacular when it hits the light and especially in any flash photography. The top was a bit loose fitting so I would recommend maybe wearing a push-up for it. The bottom half on the other hand had no stretch and is not the most comfortable dress to dance in, but is definitely tolerable. I would highly recommend it for anyone who is on the fence of whether or not they should try it.

Was really tight. I definitely could have worn the 8 and I'm normally a size 0-2. However it was really pretty! Everyone loved it!

The dress looked great in photos!

Size worn: 14
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I ended up renting the size 14, one size larger than I would normally have chosen because the 12 was not available. It was a bit loose, especially below the waist, but still looked great. It definitely wasn't uncomfortable! The color was the best thing about the dress - it was a very bright blue. Perfect for a cocktail party at the aquarium.
