Wore it to a Holiday work party. It had the right combination of conservative yet sexy. The dress was pretty fitted in the upper part, however, I couldn't go up a size because then the waist was too big. Needed a helping hand to zip it up, but it was comfortable throughout the night. Was able to even dance a little too. First time using RTR, and I was a little nervous, but it turned out great!

Holiday Party

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
This dress was perfect for my company's holiday party, I got compliments on it all night. I got the 6 and the 8 and ended up wearing the 8 because like many of the other reviews the arms we really tight. I couldn't even get my arms into the 6 and the 8 was still snug but it was doable.

I loved this dress! A favorite by far. It does run true to size, however the only reason I wore the 8 was bc the 6 was too tight in my arms. By the end of the night I was still able to dance. There are cups in the dress, that made the dress more comfortable and no bra was needed. My date loved the dress too and I received so many compliments at the reception. I felt the most confident and sexy in this dress. It wasn't too short either and I didn't need spanx. Definitely, rent this dress for a nice occasion.

AWESOME dress. Rented for cocktail formal work holiday party and it was perfect for the occasion. Fabric is not stretchy, but very forgiving. Sized up to a 6 because of my wide hips. The lace is stiff, but very, very comfortable.

I rented this dress for my birthday. Many people complimented me on the color and design.

Size worn: 8
Rented for: Party
Like others have said, this is really tight in the shoulders and arms. I ordered an 8 and 10, but wore the 8. The 10 fit better in the arms and shoulders but was too tight in the waist. Surprisingly I was able to wear the dress without a bra even being a DD due to the fact that the dress was so fitted and supportive. The reason I think I had a hard time with the upper body fit is due to my broad shoulders. I do recommend this dress!!

This dress fit so beautifully. The lace back is stunning and the cut of the front solid blue part helps create even more of an hourglass illusion. There is little to no stretch in the dress, so it will fit like a glove. I paired it with silver pumps like the model. I've never received so many compliments! I wish I could keep the dress!

Wore this to a holiday party. Had lots of compliments. Runs true to size. I actually rented this as my back up dress but ended up liking it way more than the other dress I rented and wore this instead. Fit was perfect. Color was vibrant. Lace was beautiful and fabric was nice. This would be nice for any cocktail dress or wedding.

Wore this dress for NYE..absolutely loved it! It was comfortable and I got SO MANY compliments on it! It was pretty true to size, but it was just a little big in my waist...but if I went down a size it wouldn't have for my arms as comfortable and I'm not sure if it would have zipped all the way. My first experience with RTR has been wonderful, I will definitely we renting again!

I wore this dress to a birthday party for a friend. I think I got more attentionthan he did lol.

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
The fit was exact. I ordered a size 8 and 10. Im 5'8 about 140 lbs. I usually wear a size 8. The dress was of high quality material. The lace was thick, the dress material was heavy and lined. The sleeves had zippers at the wrists to assist when getting the dress on. Very well made. The color was exact as shown (Royal blue). I recieved several compliements on the dress from men and women and the women wanting to know where I got it. The only down side I could see was that I couldnt go braless as suggested so I wore a blue bra which really couldnt be seen under the heavy lace anyway.

This dress is absolutely gorgeous and fits fairly well especially in the chest. I usually can't wear a dress without a bra but the chest was tight and fitted enough that it wasn't a problem at all- it was the first time I was able to wear anything without a bra so that was a huge plus! However, the dress was a little bit loose in the hips and butt. If I owned the dress I would have it taken in, but it was still a good fit and a beautiful dress overall.

I LOVE this dress!!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is absolutely fantastic. I did have a bit of an issue raising my arms above my head as other ladies have mentioned, but it wasn't totally detrimental (I didn't need to fully reach overhead for anything). The overall fit was great and very flattering. The dress does come with built in cups so a bra isn't totally necessary if you have a smaller chest, but I did end up wearing a nude strapless under it to prevent any potential slips since my girls were a tad too large for the cups. The color is a true royal blue and is absolutely stunning. The size 8 did fit, but the 10 was slightly more comfortable so I opted to wear that since I knew I'd be moving around a lot. I got so many compliments! I absolutely loved this dress and would totally rent it again.

30th birthday brunch!

Size worn: 2
Rented for: Party
A RTR stylist suggested this dress to me when the original dress I ordered arrived and didn't fit. This dress was perfect for my 30th birthday brunch! It fit comfortably up on top, I wore a strapless/backless bra but I could have gotten away without one. Like others said, arms had slightly limited range of motion...but nothing that stopped me from hugging, dancing, limbo-ing or enjoying myself. I thought the bottom was slightly less fitted than what I would have preferred, but that's probably because I lost some weight lately and therefore wasn't able to fill out the dress completely. All in all, very well made and gorgeous; got tons of compliments.

The top fit great! The lace was snug on the bends in my arms but nothing that was too uncomfortable just noticeable. I would have preferred it fitting a bit tighter in the waist area, but as the night went on. I was glad to have the movement on that part of my body! If I would've gotten a size 0 instead of 2 the lace would've been too tight I am sure. I am glad for the fit I had. I am 5'4" and 120 pounds.

The arms do run tight, I do Crossfit ad my arms are pretty toned. The 10 fit but it was too tight on my arms. I am almost six feet tall and it wasn't too short. I got so many compliments on this dress and it is truly a showstopper. I would wear this dress again in a heartbeat! I wore tights because of the snow and below zero temps and although I felt like it took away from the dress I was happy. Thanks RTR for an amazing experience.

This dress photographs a little purple-y but is bright royal blue. True to size. I have had 2 kids and am currently breastfeeding and this dress held me in in all the right places and I didn't even need a bra! Like everyone else said, you can't extend your arms a ton, but I didn't need to. My 3rd RTR rental and favorite so far. I will definitely rent this dress again!

Overall fit: True to Size

Short and fitted enough to be a little sexy, but then covered enough to be elegant. You need to wear a stick-on or backless bra to take advantage of the beautiful back of the dress. One of my favorite dresses I have ever worn - but very different than what I would typically choose. I received a lot of compliments throughout the day on the dress.

RTR keeps getting better and better; this was my favorite dress so far (but I'm saying this every time)! Perfect balance of sexy/sophisticated for my debut as a member of the Board of Directors for our YP organization. The fit of this dress was beyond perfect and I was comfortable in it all night long. I'm assuming it was fairly new, as the lace was stiff and thick, so I couldn't lift my arms above me head (not that there was much of this happening anyway, but the under breast lace would also make this a bad idea). Wish I would have gotten a photo of the full lace back, it was amazing and I received compliments all evening. Went no bra and felt that the stiffness of the lace top provided enough support. Although the dress is lined, I did wear spanx underneath to tighten up and smooth out everything. I would certainly rent again or purchase when available.

Great for a spring wedding! The material is thick and lined. I liked the fit of the size 10 on the bottom better but it was too tight through my back/arms so I went with the 12, which was easy to move around in and comfortable. I am 5'10 and it was also a great length!

Fits true to size. The lace arms are snug, so I probably wouldn't recommend this dress for a dance party! I normally wear a 0-2R so I ordered both sizes. I went with the 0 for a more form-fitted look, but the 2 would have been okay.

Size worn: 8
Rented for: Date
When I opened the box the first thing I noticed was the very vibrant blue color, but I knew that from the other reviewers. It truly is a knockout color. I ordered a 6 and an 8 and ended up wearing the 8 because I couldn't comfortably zip up the dress over my bust (34DDD). The sleeves also fit better with the 8. I didn't wear a bra because of the back of the dress and was so pleasantly surprised that I didn't need to! The material of the dress was supportive and still flattering considering what I was asking it to do. Would totally rent this again.

I wore the dress for an outdoor wedding in April. The long sleeves were perfect because it was slightly chilly outside. I was concerned about the bra situation with the dress since it had lace in the back area. I didn't need to wear a bra because the dress has built in cups. I felt great in the dress. It was easy to dance in and I got so many compliments!

Size worn: 8
Rented for: Wedding
A really pretty dress and color but the fit is not great. The shoulders and sleeves have ZERO stretch and are very tight. So to be able to get the sleeves to fit I had to go up in size one or two sizes than normal and then the bottom was very loose and square making me look bigger since the fabric sits very straight on the bottom. Overall it was fine, but with a better fit matching the top and bottom it could be a knock out. Definitely best for someone with a small bust or narrow shoulders so the top and bottom fit evenly.

The fit runs a little small. I ordered a 2 and a 4. I ended up wearing the 2 because I liked the little tighter fit for the event and where it hit just above the knees. I gave the dress 4 stars instead of 5 because of the lace. It did rub my neck and inner elbows because the lace is not forgiving when trying to dance. Great color and definitely a standout among a sea of black dresses. Overall great dress and I am so glad I rented it!

Beautiful color, really was a stand out for a mostly LBD event. Ordered an 8 and a 6, the six fit about the same as the 8 but the sleeves were tighter and looked better (like others have said though, you won't be lifting your arms over your head... there's not much give). Fits true to size, classy but different, snug in the bust area, and the only dress I've ever worn braless and felt comfortable all night!
