amazing fit! i wish i could keep it forever!

Size worn: 40
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
I was skeptical about renting the 40, but the 42 wasn't available. The fabric, however, has a bit of stretch to it, so the dress hugged my curves, but wasn't tight. The 40 was perfect. Unbelievably, though I usually aim to camouflage my lower half with a flared skirt, this dress made my hips and behind look great and my waist look tiny. Note: though it's not apparent in the photo, there are very sparkly threads throughout the fabric. I felt amazing in this dress and can't wait to rent it again.

this dress was a hit for a party. Very understated, yet sexy and flattering. It hugs alll the right places and was stunning without being flashy. I loved the cut, colors and fit. I received compliments all night long.

STYLIST REVIEW!

Size worn: 38
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Vacation
Loved this dress! Missoni is always a very comfortable option. However this dress does run slightly short. While the dress does run true to size I would recommend going up a size just for length purposes. The dress will be somewhat form fitting either way!

Perfect for my bridal shower in March - just warm enough for 50 degree weather!

Size worn: 40
Overall fit: Small

Runs small. Originally ordered a 38 but RTR had an issue with my size so sent me a 40 instead with a backup style... ended up wearing this dress, instead of the backup style in my true size, since it was a perfect fit and not too tight. LOVED IT!

Total strangers told me how great I looked!

I wear a 2 in St. John, a 4 in Armani and I thought the 38 would work but I needed the 40. The fabric has this amazing shiny thread. There is a coordinating slip with it that is perfect. I wore a short, very light weight spanx under it. I work out and I'm pretty firm and it was very flattering. I wore this to a business dinner where I won an award.

Love this Dress

Size worn: 40
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I got so many compliments on this dress. It's unexpected and different, so it got a lot of attention. I like that the elasticity formed to my body but allowed me to breathe. I was glad I got the smaller size. It did ride-up as I danced, but the long sleeves and high neckline made it a little more modest. It is a little sparkly which was fun with the event's lights. Would def recommend this

Great mix of conservative and cute!

Size worn: 38
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
I must admit I wasn't super excited about this rental, but the RTR pictures (nor mine) do this dress justice. When I put it on, I liked it a lot more than I thought I would. The knit dress itself is stretchy, which should make it nice for any shape. There is a light blue slip to wear underneath the knit dress. The slip underneath is kinda one size, but I think it has give like a nightie. I'm typically a size 0 and wore the 38. I think it would work for a zero or two.

Fits sooooo nicely.

Size worn: 44
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I did not get a picture to which I'm very bummed. I was worried the "sheathiness" of it would not jibe with my pear shape. But it *did!* It fit very nicely around the junk in the trunk and is quite stretchy. It's lightweight, making it really good for outdoor evening weddings. It has a little sparkle to the yarn. I would rent this again in a millisecond if RTR didn't have so many other things to try.

I wore this for a rehearsal dinner. It was nice and fit very well -- I'm not sure I'd pay full price for it, but I'd definitely love to own it!
