I didn't end up wearing this... I'm a skinny person, and this just looked like a bag on me.
Huge, not flattering at all... maybe would be a great maternity dress.

Wishing it was better...
I ordered this dress in the only size available, which was a zero. Typically that size wouldn't even be considered, but after reading other reviews I knew this dress would be large even in the small size. Well, large in an UNDER statement. I'm 5'5" and this dress was to my upper calve. Would have loved it to work, simply a poor cut for my body.

I got the dress to wear to a 20's formal event. Everyone loved the dress. I loved the feel and look
Great fit, hides the body's imperfections. it's perfect if you are feeling a little out of shape. Runs pretty large. I got the 46 to wear,but thankfully the second size was also sent(40). i'm only 5'3 and the smaller size worked out better. The dress is both sexy and sophisticated.It can be worn both casually and for a formal event. Loved it, and will rent the same dress again for a different occasion. Thank you RTR!!!!

This dress was absolutely awesome! Received a lot of compliments and felt sexy and sophisticated!
This was a small but it had a lot of room. I am usually a 4 but it could have fit someone with a size 6 just great as well. Overall, this dress is a home run for any occasion.

not quite long enough to be a dress on my 6 foot frame, but it made an awesome tunic with leggings
This dress does run big - I usually wear a size 12, but the euro 46 fit me just fine. Other reviews mentioned the dress was long, but that only goes so far, as I have a long torso. It came to about 5 inches above my leg - i probably would have worn it as a dress in my 30's. The leggings made it a bit more casual, which actually worked out well for the afternoon party I attended. Take note, the chain on the size 46 looked more silver than gold, probably from the dry-cleaning process. The chain on the size 40 was still gold. It did make it a bit difficult to wear any silver or gold jewelry.

It made me look extremely sophisticated in a room full of high schoolers.
This dress is super comfy. Yes, it's large and loose, but that's how it's supposed to fit. I love that it has pockets; that was an extra perk. The only bad things about this dress are that when I got it, it had some spots on it and the metal chain caused a reaction so my neck turned slightly green. Other than that, it was great.

So comfortable and CUTE!
I didn't end up wearing this dress, but only because I decided to go with my other rental since it wasn't black and I tend to wear black a lot. I will definitely be renting this dress again. It was super comfortable and chic at the same time. It is also quite slimming. One of the other reviewers said it felt like you are wearing nothing and that is true. Great dress! I normally wear a 10, so I rented the 46, but I could have easily worn a 44. Lots of wiggle room in this dress.

Comfort. Class. Compliments.
I wore this dress to a rooftop wedding in NYC. I felt like I was wearing nothing! The dress is easy and comfortable to wear. I wore it with a strapless bra and regular underwear. I'm 5'9" and I weigh about 165 pounds. I usually wear a 12, but because this dress is so loose and "flowy", I believe anyone could/should go down a size. AND THERE ARE POCKETS!

I've been itching to rent this dress for awhile. I loved every minute of wearing it. I'm also liking this designer, as I've rented their melon colored jumpsuit, also. Both fit beautifully. The only negative is the pockets would not stay tucked. They kept popping out. Leaving me with no choice but to keep checking them or putting my hands in the pockets. A strategic pinning or stitch would be better. That was kinda annoying because I wore it to a concert. Other than that, it's all positive.

Rocked it even in FLATS!!! Hello Nashville!!!!
I wore this my best friends bachelorette weekend in Nashville. I am generally a color-lover but the invite called for black so this was a great easy wear option. Not fussy at all a throw and go type of dress. I wore the 10 and it was still a bit baggy even though I prefer my dresses looser vs skin tight. Overall it was a great pick just a little boring for my taste.

Got a lot of compliments but it was rather large.
There was only 2 sizes available when I rented it. I was nervous about the size 10 since that's smaller than I normally wear. I got it in the mail exactly on the date promised. It was difficult to get over my head since the chain neck didn't come undone. I now I am shorter than the average modal by about 5inches but this was very long. I used the supplied double stick tape to hem it and that helped. After about 4hours of wearing the dress and with minimal dancing and moving around, the tape came undone and I could not get it to stick again so I ended up carrying the dress to not look silly. That aside, I got a lot of compliments and the experience with RTR was great and I will be using it again soon!

Fabulous dress! It was a great fit.
The dress ran large and I was thankful to have an alternate size. Shipping it back was so easy. Will rent again in the future.

Beautiful but runs VERY large.
The dress is beautiful and was delivered in pristine condition. However, this dress runs EXTREMELY large. I would recommend ordereing in 2-3 sizes smaller than what you wear. I am 5"10 and the dress hung below my knees.

Comfy cozy!
Being 8 months pregnant you can't be too picky! However this dress was so cute and comfy i'm tempted to rent it again. Good length, swingy shape, nice heavy material that drapes well.

easy glamour
Great easy dress, very flowy and comfortable: effortless chic but it runs REALLY large so beware. I loved the fact that I never had to worry about feeling bloated at the end of the dinner and drinks and that I wasn't constricted while still looking glamourous. It's a nice change for a little black dress and it will highlight your fabulous shoes

I didn't get as many compliments on this dress as i normally do when I rent from RTR, but I was happy to be able to wear something fashionable while pregnant.
This dress was really comfortable and stylish. I'd give it 3.5 stars. I wore it to a wedding while 28 weeks pregnant. I was a little worried the clasp on the chain would come open while dancing (it seemed a little loosed from wear), but it didn't. Overall, I was happy with this rental.

Getting a compliment from Liv Tyler on my dress was pretty amazing!
This is the most fashion-forward yet still incredibly comfortable dress i have ever worn. I always love a cold shoulder as it's an asset I love to show off the rest of the dress just drapes beautifully. Such an easy fit!
