The best part of RTR is how easy it is. The dress shows up, you put it on and send back the next day

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
Definitely runs small for anyone that has some sort of hip action. I typically can wear a 4 and barely squeezed my lower end into a 6. Other than that, it's a nice conservative cut and easy to wear.

Wish I had seen the previous review earlier!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I'm normally a 2/4, but definitely a pear shape. As the previous reviewer mentioned, this dress does not flatter anyone with any kind of hips. And while I could get it on (eventually) and move around comfortably, the fabric ended up bunching in the most unflattering places and I had way too much room on top. A shame, too, because the material is absolutely gorgeous! Would definitely flatter a narrower figure.

Love the feeling of vibrancy this dress conveys!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
The colors and sheen of this dress make it incredibly striking...and the style is classically sophisticated. I found it too short for my usual tastes, but adjusted stockings and heels to accommodate for this. I should have worn more striking earrings ... but loved the RTR gold leaf bracelet selected.

I didn't end up wearing this dress because it runs small and was not flattering on me. The print was a lot brighter than the picture shown.

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small

This dress is absolutely gorgeous! I wore this for a presentation I had to do for one of my GSLIS classes on Eric Carle, the man who wrote "The Very Hungry Caterpillar". The pattern and colors all matched his illusration style. Concerning the fit of this dress, just like the other reviewers stated, this dress definitely runs tight in the midsection. So if you do have a belly, aka if while you stand and you look about 3 months pregnant, purchase a larger size. I'm normally a size 6 but for this dress I had to wear a size 8 cause of my stomach. Other than that, it's very comfortable, and it hit me about 4 inches above my knees.

Goregous dress! Love the fabric! Size up if you aren't stick straight!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I had to wear a size up because the dress was tight around my legs & butt (Note: I have an athletic figure). The fabric has no stretch, so even though I could wear the 4, I knew I had to be sitting half the night (I went to a dinner) and wore the 6 so I felt comfortable. The top part was a little loose wearing the size up, but not too loose (my boyfriend didn't think so anyway) and I got compliments on the dress at the party.

Gorgeous dress, so flattering, perfect for a birthday in NYC

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
So I actually had this as my second style and wanted to wear it on my birthday for a day of shopping, small plates, etc. around NYC. I had some trouble with the zipper and it turned out to be defective and broke about an hour into the day. Luckily it was winter so I had it paired with a navy sweater (and brown tights and brown ankle boots) which covered the hole. And RTR was awesome about it when I told them. I think it was a problem with that zipper in particular, and the dress was absolutely beautiful! I've been looking for it to buy ever since.

Very comfortable fun party dress. I'm a size 6 and never wear an 8 but rented a 6 &8 based on the reviews. I ended up wearing the 8 because it was not as tight in the hips. Loved it! Prettier colors in person too.

Really pretty and flattering dress - just small in the hips!

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I LOVED the dress. The colors are beautiful and the cut is very flattering. I unfortunately did not wear it because it was a little snug in the hips - I find that happens a lot with Milly dresses. Thankfully, it was my backup dress so I still danced the night away in another RTR dress! My suggestion is if you are hippy like me, size up!

This was definitely a little snug on the butt/hips area and I had to go with my back up size. I also thought the print made me look a little boxy on the top. It has a very slimming waist though.

Love the dress! Just what I was looking for to wear at graduation. The dress was a little tight, (tightest around the hips) but fit well everywhere else. I wore the size 6 and there was a small snag in the back of the dress at the bottom. Besides that everything was perfect!

Overall fit: True to Size

I wore this to a summer rehearsal dinner. The fabric looks and feels beautiful. It was pretty on, but I gave it only 3 stars because the fit wasn't quite right. It was fitted in the hips, but a little loose around the stomach and chest. It was still flattering and I would recommend it for a nice date or party.

Too short for me!

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small

I am 5/4" and small boned. Sometimes I wear petites. I love Milly and both own and rent their dresses, usually fitting well into either a 4 or 6. I rented the 4 in this dress with a 6 for back up and both came to about my mid-thigh. They seemed unusually short and because it was for a warm weather event, I couldn't wear tights. I didn't feel comfortable in either and returned them both.

Terrible fit

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The colors on this dress are really nice but i was pretty disappointed with the fit and i ended up not wearing it. The bottom of the dress was very tight, which would be fine if it had some stretch but it was very stiff, and the rest of the dress was just awkward and bunchy in all the wrong places. If you have narrow hips and you're okay with some bagginess on your back and lower belly, then the dress should be fine for you, but if you want a sliming, waist defining, and comfortable dress (which I'm assuming most of you do), then stay away!

I didn't end up wearing the dress because I went to a different party, but I should have ordered 2 sizes up to actually feel comfortable in it. I'm a 6/8, so got an 8 & 10, but needed the 12 (!) Otherwise, it's a super cute dress!

Pretty dress, but didn't fit great.

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
This is now my second Milly dress. Women with hips: it's true, the material doesn't stretch and it runs fairly narrow below the waist. I ordered an 8, which didn't fit over my hips at all. The 10 probably would have fit well, but they didn't have one so I wore a 12. I'm shorter, so it was definitely too big and long through the top. Also, I'm not sure if it was because it was big or it's just the dress, but the skirt kept twisting around, and the side zipper kept coming towards my navel. My friends claimed you couldn't tell because of the ruching and the colors, but I felt like a little kid fidgeting trying to fix it. Three stars because I really liked the dress, but I don't think I was wearing the right size, and didn't like how it fit.

I rented this dress for a summer wedding. I have an hourglass shape, but even still can always fit into either a 2 or 4 size dress. I ordered both sizes in this, and both were WAY to small. I could barely pull the dress down over my hips, and the bust area on both sizes was way too big. Luckily they overnighted me a different dress that fit beautifully! :)

I didnt wear this because it was a bit too small in the hips, but the dress was very pretty. I plan on renting a larger size when I have the right occasion. Just a warning, I'm not a small girl, but i dont carry much of my weight in the hip or booty area. This is definitely made for someone with slim hips.

I wore this to a wedding brunch. They didn't have a size 10 so I rented an 8 and a 12. The 8 was really small in the hips so I ended up wearing the 12 - a 10 would have been perfect. This dress would fit best on someone with a larger chest and narrow hips.

Didn't wear this dress, only tried it on. I found it runs big in the bust, torso, and backside (bum) areas. I ordered a size 4 and a 6 as my backup size based on the reviews I read about it running small but I wish I would have ordered my normal size 2 as it probably would have fit better. Great fabric and the pattern is gorgeous! Viewing it online does it no justice - this dress is amazing.
