Didn't wear but very cute

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I only didn't wear it because the other dress I had gotten I liked better (see Christian Siriano dress review). It is quite fitted (but fit perfect in UK 10), but at some angles it made me look a little bigger than I am because of the design of the flowy pieces of fabric on the sides. Very cute though.

Someone prior to me had mad some alterations on the spagetti straps, so it was a little short.

I got this dress to have an additional option and didn't end up wearing it due to its fit.

Beautiful material, but it didn't fit as I had hoped (It was a bit awkward and unflattering for my shape.) For someone with a different shape, I'm sure it could be a beautiful dress...

Delicate and beautiful but maybe too delicate...

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
When I received the two dresses they were different- I laid them side by side and the size 6's sheaths broke off the straps (so the two pieces of fabric held by the straps fell over showing the back of the fabric which is not as beautiful as it's suppose to be)- unfortunate because the size 6 fit me better. I got a hotel sewing kit and tried to fix it but it was too time consuming. Fortunately, the size 8 fit fine too, whoever wore it before made some alteration to the straps so it wasn't too revealing and in fact, I liked the length just fine. It wasn't as fitted but worked okay (definitely had to wear a bra) and still got lots of compliments. The Kyoto Print was so comfortable my husband and I danced all night!

Felt confident all night!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Date
This is a great dress- I ordered it to take on vacation and wore it for a date night out with my boyfriend. He loved the dress and I also got the ultimate compliment of three girls whispering about how great my dress was when we were in the elevator. It was comfortable to walk around in and go to dinner in. You can tell this is an expensive, well made dress by the way it drapes and flows. This was definitely one I did not want to send back! The only issue I have is with the sizing. I think the RTR conversions are a bit off- normally I have found that UK sizes are two full sizes above what I wear (so a 4 would be a UK 8) but the RTR conversion has is as 3 full sizes (so a US 4 is listed as UK 10). I got the UK 10 and 12 and I wore the 10 and I could have gone down to at least a UK 8, maybe even to a UK 6 (which I don't think is available). It was still was fine since it is so flowy. I was worried it looked bad but after getting several compliments in five minutes I stopped worrying about it! Definitely size down for backup size though!

Beautiful dress for a magical night!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I ordered a 6 and an 8. I usually fit in a 6, but one of the strap was broken on the 6 that was I sent, so I ended up having to use a paperclip to wear the 8. Wish I had gotten the 4, because that probably would have fit perfectly.

Very fun dress. The only thing In wished I could change was the straps, a little too long and I had to pull them up all night. Overall a great outfit for a night out on Vegas!

Didn't wear, awkward dress

Size worn: 14
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
After reading the size issues in the reviews, I swallowed my pride and ordered a size 14 because I wanted to wear the dress so badly. The super short hem line didn't bother me. The paper thin layers of fabric didn't bother me either. The straps were an odd length. If I'd been at home or had a sewing kit, I could have sewed/pinned them to make them shorter because my bra kept showing in the cleavage area. The main downfall was how messy the dress looked. I felt like it was disheveled and wouldn't look right for my Vegas night out.

Make sure you have safety pins to adjust the straps, because they are long. Otherwise, flattering, unique and comfy!

Gorgeous and feminine, but photographs horribly

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Vacation
I wore this dress to a dinner and a show in Vegas for my birthday. The dress is absolutely gorgeous and feels very feminine and luxurious against the skin. I felt like a goddess walking around the casinos in it. The cons are that the straps fall down and the front sags a bit. The dress looked awesome in person, but made me look so obese in photos (which I'm not!) that I did not post any of them on social media.

Beautiful print and unusual cut.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I didn't end up choosing this dress because it didn't quite fit right up top. The straps would have needed to be shortened I think. It just made me look real flat-chested (but I didn't try it on with a good strapless bra and I'm sure that would have helped). I love the look and feel of the dress. I think it would look better on a bustier gal.

too big, runs large?

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
It was so large it wouldn't even stay on. I am almost always a size 6 , this fit like a 12 . also the waist and fabric at the side seams made for a very unflattering silhouette. I was very disappointed in the dress.

Cute dress for a special dinner

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
I wore this dress for a big anniversary dinner in New York. Both the 2 and the 4 equivalents fit, but I think I went with the larger size to accommodate the multi-course meal. The top was the trickiest part. I'm not flat-chested, but the straps were so long that I needed to pin them back to prevent too much gaping.
