Versatile, Comfortable and Sexy!

Size worn: 38
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I rented this dress for my friend's rehearsal dinner. I absolutely loved this dress, but I chose this dress for it's versatility. You can easily dress it up or down. Plus, its the perfect dress for transitional weather. I live in Pittsburgh, and September and October weather can be very unpredictable. I figured whether it was 30 or 70 degrees outside, this dress would work! A couple details.. The dress is actually very sheer. You are really the only one who will be able to tell, but if you are very modest, you might feel uncomfortable. The dress was the perfect length on me, but I am only 5'4". So, if you are taller, you might want to pair it with leggings or tights. Overall, I loved the dress and received several compliments!

Comically short dress. But an extraordinary shirt.

Size worn: 46
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
When I first tried on this dress, my husband and I had a good laugh at how short it was on me. But at the suggestion of another review my height (5' 10"), I added a little black skirt and viola! I was now wearing an incredibly cool shirt. The wedding I wore this for was more of a party vibe, so the two-piece look worked well. Just three months after having a baby, I felt lovely and comfortable all night.

Fun, dazzling and crazy dress!

Size worn: 40
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
My boyfriend's son was getting married and I needed to look beautiful and yet not too dressy since the wedding was casual.I was very excited about this dress. When it arrived, I got worried, as I opened the garment bag and my first thought was... this is not a dress, it looks more like a shirt/top!. Once I tried it on, I noticed it can be worn as both but for me as a dress it was more than fine ( I am 5'1'). I am glad I ordered a small size(38) and one up(40)from it as the small was too small but the 40 size was perfect. I wore an undergarment, as suggested in the reviews. The only drawback is that I could not lift the arm with the sleeve as the dress was lifting and revealing my undergarment and it was not flattering. On the other hand, I had LOTS of compliments on the dress and everyone told me it was a very original and flattering piece. Thank you RTR for another big success!.

Dress is sheer. Make sure to have a strapless slip ready! The "bra petals" I wore were too light underneath so had to remove them. Otherwise dress was simply awesome.

I wore this dress to a charity kick off party in Palm Beach on a yacht and it was perfect. WARNING - this is very short, very short. I am a girl that loves a mini but I had to purchase a BCBG skirt to wear under it for an additional 2 inches of length. With that said, the colors are amazing, the pattern is great, and although this is a loose fitting dress - there is a sexiness to it while maintaining a classy look. There are so many gorg colors in the knit the accessories options are endless. You could pair this with skinny jeans, leggins, a mini skirt or wear it as a chic cover-up. Overall it was a great pick, a lot of compliments given, only 4 of 5 stars because I would love this a bit longer :)

This dress is very different and stands out in the crowd. It was really baggy on me, however, and I had to belt it. It ended up looking great with a skinny gold belt and the statement necklace I rented. I was happy with my rental.

I wasn't typically used to wearing a dress that's like a "bag" fit but I actually really loved this dress. My boyfriend didn't love the fit because it was not tight, but I loved it! I was skeptical because it might have been see through, but it was definitely not. One complaint was that it was short, so anyone around 5'9 and not used to wearing shorter dresses, you might not love this. Just wear a full panty!

The dress was a little large, I would recommend sizing own just one size from your average. Also, be sure to have a strapless slip or something that covers your body for under the garment.

Casual dinner date

Size worn: 40
Overall fit: True to Size

RTR was out of a size medium in another dress and they offered this one for me for free (!). Super cute, but casual. And the side w/ the arm lifts up when you lift your arm, so I wore leggings. I will add that I am 7 months pregnant and this was comfortable, but I prefer a form fit so my pregnancy is obvious and I dont just appear bloated. Wore out to dinner.

I received multiple compliments but even more importantly, I loved how chic it made me feel! This, Ladies, is the secret to escaping the perpetual seasonal wardrobe shift: RTR!

Size worn: 40
Overall fit: Large

As a heads up - this dress is designed and cut to fit like a breezy poncho, so expect that it will drape, not hug your physique. That being said, it was PERFECT as a cover up for my day trip to Caudalie Spa! I received multiple compliments but even more importantly, I loved how chic it made me feel! It boasts the classic Missoni zig zag motif, but with the volume turned up in a fashionable color blocking design. It offers just the right amount of classy & sexy thanks to the exposed shoulder and slightly sheer fabric. This, Ladies, is the secret to escaping the perpetual seasonal wardrobe shift: RTR! BTW, it's hard to appreciate the intricacy of the poncho's patterns via photos. So beautiful...

I wore this dress for a brunch birthday and it was perfect. The dress is very sack-like and hung like a pancho. That was the look I was going for, but if you want a form fitting dress, this is not it. The fabric is sheer so I wore a black tank dress underneath. I got a ton of compliments. It's a perfect dress if you want to look effortlessly chic.

Perfect Pool Cover Up for a Fall Look on a Hot Day!

Size worn: 38
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I rented this dress to wear for my boyfriend's birthday party, which was at a pool on a hot day in October in Miami. I loved the print but the fit was much more baggy than expected. It was fine for a cover up but I wouldn't have worn it without a swimsuit. I'm 5' and the length was short on me.

It is hard to wear this dress without some kind of slim fit pants or a slip underneath it. I didn't really find the fit or the dress that flattering.

The fit was shorter than I thought it would be. I am 5'4" and the shorter side was very high. It is a casual pullover more than a dressy dress.

The dress was incredibly awkward. It was SO short that if I raised my arms you would have seen inappropriate body parts. I am only 5'3 so not many things are short on me. Luckily I had a backup at home, but really would not recommend this dress to anyone. It's a shame because it looks so stylish and cute on the model.

I used this as a beach cover up for an event I was hosting. It is so comfortable, unique, and beautiful. I don't think I would have been comfortable trying to wear it as a dress given the shorter length and the sheerness of it. But, I hated to return it and have already reserved it again!

I rented this dress for a bachelorette weekend in Miami. It was perfect as a beach coverup; however, it is not ideal to wear as an actual dress as it is completely see-through. Although I was only able to wear it on top of my bathing suit, I still received so many compliments from the girls I was with.

Cute and comfy

Overall fit: True to Size

Originally, I wasn't very impressed with this as a dress, so I slipped on black shorts and a black bandeau top underneath. It made the look more casual, and I was going for the "effortless chic" look anyway. The poncho is pretty simple but I was amazed by how many positive comments I received. I wore it with black shorts and a tank underneath to a night out with while at a conference in Florida. The resort like atmosphere made it look natural. I'd buy this!

Cute dress for vacation

Size worn: 44
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Vacation
I loved this, but more for by the pool and wearing over a swimsuit than as a dress. It is see-through, and a garment underneath might be hard to manage. I rented a 40 and a 44 (42 wasn't available). The size 40 was a much better fit (a bit shorter than the 44, more flattering for over a swimsuit) except the dress was so stretched out on top that it didn't fit properly and the armhole just hung there. The size 44 was in much better shape on top so I wore that one instead, even though it was a bit longer than I would have wanted for hanging out by the pool. The colors are great, and I would definitely rent this again.

Great dress. Missoni never fails to deliver. Beware that it is as others described and "see-through". I wore it with a Missoni slip I had from one of my own dresses and it was perfect. I purchased the Spanx tube dress, but didn't like it as much underneath. It did have a few snags and I think a hole that someone sewed up, but nonetheless, it was not noticeable. Everyone loved it and commented how effortlessly cool I looked. I would rent it again.

It doesn't come with a slip and the arm holes are enormous - that said if you have a slip-dress it's a great top - runs very large so order small. It's also VERY sheer - so make sure the slip-dress has good coverage.

Coverup or glorified shawl

Size worn: 40
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Vacation
I rented this for a weekend in Vegas with the intent of wearing it out to a nightclub or for dinner. When it arrived I found it to be more of a shawl and appropriate for day or a pool coverup. It was very fun, chic, comfy and flattering but essentially a glorified shawl with one hole for your head and another for your arm. Plus it was unraveling in places.

Wow, what a treat it was to wear this stunning dress. It was beyond easy to wear and very comfortable. I think this would look amazing on any body type, weight or height. The knit was a tiny bit see-thru but I think it just added to the sexy factor. I wore this on two dates and both the men LOVED it. I have rented so many dresses over the past year and this is still my favorite.

Wore this to a beach wedding rehearsal dinner, right off the plane.... and then again on the plane back! It was perfect to go from casual to dressy. So many compliments. Make sure you have a slip, I wore a loose silk skirt slip and it worked well as the material lets light through. Great with wedges or pumps.

This was my first RTR experience and I have nothing but amazing things to say! The dress came with complimentary fashion tape and a great Kate Spade perfume sample which was a fun suprise and came in handy! I would say that this dress runs true to size. It is very short and flowy so it was very flattering and fun. I loved it and got many compliments. It is colorful, bright, and great for the spring. Thank you RTR I look forward to renting again soon!!
