This dress fit perfectly! It was nice and tight yet still flattering up top and it flowed down the bottom which made me feel like I could eat and dance all night. I didn't have to worry about how I looked in the dress as the night wore on.

The fit was great in the waist and the skirt flowed beautifully. The top of the dress ran a little large around the arms, but not enough to make it noticeable. The pockets were fantastic for keeping my phone and lipgloss within reach! Perfect go to dress for any fun event! I wish I didn't have to return it.

It was a little snug at the beading but gapped in the chest, nothing a couple safety pins couldn't fix. Definetly go up a size.

I received non-stop compliments, even one from the bride...!

Overall fit: True to Size

The fit was slightly loose around the arms which I expected for my bust size but wasn't an issue. The length of the dress hit right at my knees; comfortable and classy. It was hard for me to find accessories based off the modeled picture. I couldn't tell which colors were in the embellished belt (silver and black). I went with silver shoes and clutch, then with blue dangling earrings. I wish I utilized the pockets more but really a dress with pockets- the best idea ever! I wish I could wear it all over again...

Beautiful dress, people were raving about it

Overall fit: True to Size

This was my first RTR experience and it was fantastic! I loved this dress online and it was just as beautiful in person. The dress was true to size. As usual I was between the 0 and the 2. I wore the 2, it was a bit roomy on top but the 0 would have been a bit tight in the waist. Everyone loved the dress, I could hear people commenting on it while walking around the cocktail hour. I wore gun metal colored shoes and they looked great, that was one of my biggest questions with the dress but it all pulled together great! Thanks RTR!

I wore this dress to a formal wedding. I loved everything about it! I was nervous that the embellishments at the waist may be a little "worn" but it wasn't at all- the dress came in perfect condition. The back was incredibly flattering and I got so many compliments all night. I highly recommend for any formal event!

True to size. I got so many compliments beautiful dress. The material, length and color is perfect. The back was a great accent it showed the right amount of skin. Beading was beautiful and dress was light weight Con: a little bit confusing to get in. Zipper gave a bit of trouble but once in the dress no complications

I knew this dress ran small because I had tried it on in Saks 2 weeks earlier for black tie event. The one I tried on was a size 6, a gown, white on top, black bottom. I loved it, but it was snug in the breast. When I saw it on RTR in a short version I knew it was perfect for a wedding I was attending.. Rented it. Loved it. Soooo many compliments. No bra needed, thick back strap support, I'm a 34D, held me in check without a worry all day!

Unlike any other generic Homecoming dress you see in stores (too tight and too sparkly)...

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I had my eye on this dress for MONTHS and was finally able to rent it for my Junior Homecoming. I'm usually a size 6, but only the size 8 was available (which made me a bit nervous). I took my chances and ordered it and ended up being EXTREMELY comfortable, never having to think about "sucking it in". PROS: Classy and sassy with the open-back, beading around the waist was the perfect amount of sparkle, and the fabric was light-weight yet durable so I wasn't too worried about ripping it when I sat down. Also, I have broad shoulders and rib-cage, so I was worried if this would give me a "football player" vibe, but I ended up being completely satisfied with the overall look! CONS: The hem kept flipping so I was constantly fixing it before every photo (even after ironing) and since it was one size larger, the straps were pretty loose and needed to be pinned down. As my first RTR, I was so pleased by the customer service and the overall experience. Will definitely rent again!

Fit is true to size. Cannot wear a bra but fabric in front is thick and if you have the right size should lend some support. Was nice to wear a dress that did not restrict eating and drinking (!) Pockets were great, I received many compliments. Would definitely rent this again!

This dress was way out of my box, but I decided to go for it and so so happy I did. I absolutely loved it. It's a cute and girly dress. I was worried it would be a little long, but it hit right above my knee which was perfect. I probably could have gone with a size 6. I had a hard time getting the dress zipped over the beading, but once it was zipped it was comfortable.

Fashion tape recommended, and the straps stay in place better the more snug the straps fit on top. Mine shifted around slightly, but it wasn't an issue. The back of the dress was my absolute favorite.

Definitely a tight fit for a larger chest. Since the straps come in more narrow, I couldn't wear a bra with it. The length was longer but perfect for a black tie affair. Compliments all night. Fit incredibly but was a bit tight around the waist. Overall, loved it.

This dress was absolutely perfect! Unfortunately I did not get a good solo photo, but the number of compliments I received throughout the night were astounding. I cannot say enough about this dress. I would rent it again in a heart beat. I met and exceeded all my expectations. I hit right above the knee on me and perhaps gaped ever so slightly around the arms, but not noticeably. I did not wear a bra of any kind and nothing was needed due to the thickness of the material.

gorgeous dress. A little tight around the waste but beautiful back.

Size worn: 4

I wore this to a wedding more formal and got rave reviews. The back is what makes this dress unique. Fits tight around the waste because of the beading not much give. The dress dark blue with the beading I only had to wear a statement bracelet to pull it all together. And the pockets are so nice to slide your Iphone into! extra bonus!

Beautiful classic dress but didn't quite fit me...

Size worn: NONE
Rented for: Wedding
Was excited to wear this dress for a wedding but neither size quite fit. The size 4 fit everywhere but the waist was just too tight for my frame. The size 6 fit in the waist but was too large everywhere else (arm area was too wide and the length just had too much material). The dress is well made and the embellished waist makes it not too simple. The dress was very classic and felt like it could be worn to formal events as a good alternative to full length gowns. And easy to accessorize with. In the end, couldn't make it work but as usual RTR service excellent with response to exchanges.

Incredible dress, but a little big

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I absolutely loved wearing this dress! I was concerned about it being too long, given that I'm short, but it hit right at my knees- with heels, it was the perfect length. The only issue was that the dress was larger than anticipated. I think this might be a personal thing. I have a bigger bust, so I'm a larger size, but since the dress was backless I may not have had to take that into account as much as I did. It still fit well, with a little fashion tape. The fabric is gorgeous, and the waistband had just the right amount of sparkle.

Great for formal black tie event if you don't want to wear long dress

Size worn: NONE
Rented for: Wedding
I got this dress as a backup to a dress I ordered for a wedding whose backup size got ruined/was never returned. RTR graciously sent me a free dress at any cost (more or less than the one I ordered) in 2 sizes. Thankfully the one size that I did receive for the original dress I ordered ended up fitting me, as I felt this dress was a bit too formal for the wedding I was going to (cocktail, not black tie, attire). However it is a great quality dress, but may have been too poofy/"cupcakey" of a style dress for me.

Strangers came up to me at the wedding with compliments on this beautiful dress.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I never wanted to take this dress off. I wish I had a good photo of me in this dress, since I rely on photos of other wearers to help decide - but the fit and style of this dress was incredible. I am 5'11" and I hate dresses that are too short, which was my biggest concern, but this length was perfect. I was also worried that the 6 would be too small (I wear a 6 in regular clothes, but dresses are always a mystery. They were out of the 8 so I took a gamble) The fit was perfect. Everything about this dress was perfect. I was able to hide my phone and my sunglasses in my pocket for photos, for walking down the aisle - all of it. I don't really have hips, but this dress made everything look just right. I didn't need a bra either and just let the dress do the work.

The dress was perfect for the event. Being 5'10" I'm always afraid of wearing shorter dresses but this ones length was great hit me right above the knee. The hem on the size 6 was a little wonky, doesn't lay flat, but that didn't make a difference in the fit. I bought a special bra to go with it but ended up not needing one at all. (I am on the smaller side so it really would have just been for show). Totally made me comfortable the whole night and the pockets were icing on the cake for me.

LOVE.

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
Gorgeous dress, even more gorgeous for its simplicity. I would call this TTS but on the small side - there was NO extra room in the bodice of this dress, though there's a teeny bit of give just because of the cross-open back. There is also NO give in the waist, which was a tad bit high for me. The next size up would definitely have been too big all over though. For a woman with a smaller ribcage than mine I'm sure it would be perfect. Regardless, this is all more than made up for by the skirt which is lovely, the perfect amount of floaty fullness, and has POCKETS. I got compliments all night, danced a LOT, and was sad to see this one go back.

Gorgeous dress--I wish it fit better!

Size worn: NONE
Rented for: Wedding
I didn't end up wearing this dress because, although it fit in the waist, the straps were way too loose and flopped around on my back, making the neckline look funny. I think either my waist was too big or my torso was too short for this dress. I have worn a size 10 in other ML dresses, but this one was not cooperating. I really appreciate the RTR customer service for helping me out with the return!
