Loved the flowing material when I was dancing!

Runs a little bit small and the top can be a bit uncomfortable if too tight so definitely order a size up just in case. Other than that, absolutely beautiful and hangs really well! Got lots of compliments!

Got so many compliments on this dress!

Size worn: 40
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This dress is very pretty and bold in person. The fabric is a heavier weight jersey tricot...with a slight sheen. The fabric feels cool to the touch. I belted it high on my ribcage, since It looked a bit moo-mooish unbelted. I think it could overtake a petite frame since it's a lot of fabric. I was worried it would be see-through, but it ended up being fine. The inner bra is a tube top, made of very dense stretch mesh that's very supportive. The bra was VERY tight on my chest since I'm a bigger cup size, but if you have a small ribcage the 40 will fit a DD cup. I loved the side seam pockets and hi-lo hemline. This dress can definitely be dressed up or down.

Wore the size 38, easy fit and perfect for my friend's birthday dinner. Go with nude panties underneath as the lining is only around the bust area.

I ordered my dress on tuesday and needed to receive it by Thursday and it arrived here Thursday at noon! I had the BEST experience with RTR, this is the first rental of many.

Let me just say that I LOVED this dress. I did not want to return it. The coloring on the flowers are so vibrant. I rented the size 38..Im 5'4 and 105 lbs. There is a built in bra type thing in the dress and I did not have to wear a bra with it...I am small chested (32B). Nude panties are needed though as the only part with lining is the top. I got so many compliments on the dress and paired it with some brown steve madden wedges. I was so sad to send it back :((

Great dress

Size worn: 48
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Beautiful flowy, soft dress. It's really easy to dress it up or down depending on shoes/accessories. I'm a 38DD and it fit around my chest without being too loose or too tight. Also, for those of us who are not spring chickens, I loved that this dress is a great length. It hit my leg just above the knee and because it's so voluminous, it didn't rise up when I sat down. I would LOVE to keep this dress!

Another RTR success!

I wore this for a night out in Atlantic City, NJ. It was delivered on time to my vacation rental beach house. The dress is beatiful and flowing. Looks exactly as in the picture, except Very flattering for less than perfect figures. Best to wear with nude panties. Has a built-in shelf bra, so I didn't need additional bra. However, bra is not padded but that wasn't a problem for me.

I wore this to a Vegas pool party and it was fabulous. Really comfortable and I love how it has pockets. Usually dresses that don't have a fitted waist make me look pregnant due to my larger chest but because there was an extra shelf bra that flattened my chest a bit, the dress looked great! It was tough taking the dress on and off due to the shelf bra but overall, I loved it and wish I could keep it!

So the other reviewers are on point when they said the bandeau lining is tight. It was hard to get this dress off, but at the same time I was not tugging at this strapless number at all, stayed up all night. Very comfortable, and bump friendly. Will be renting this style again when I need the latter ;)

I rented this dress for a beach vacation, it was easy to wear. I got a lot of compliments and was comfortable all night. The fabric is a little shiny which may not come across in pictures.

perfect for a day in West Balm Beach

Size worn: 40
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Vacation
wish i could own this dress - my favorite RTR rental so far. I think the dress runs small in the bust area and I prefer it to have a looser, casual fit. I could have easily worn the 42 and would not have any issues staying up. This was a dress I had tried on at the NYC showroom and I'm glad I did. I paired this for the day time with a brown leather & gold chain link belt and nude flip flops with wedges for the evening. Length in the front hit a few inches above my knees and was longer in the back. Loved it!

Perfect for a luau themed party!

Size worn: 40
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I loved this dress and received a ton of compliments. It's so pretty and colorful, the dress does the work so I just wore it with nude wedges and simple jewelry. No bra is necessary, but there's no lining on the bottom half as many other reviews have stated, so nude panties are your best bet. I wore the 40, but could have gone up a size and been just as comfortable. This is by far my favorite rental so far.

Unique dress, can be dressed up or down

Size worn: 38
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Vacation
This dress has a great print that was perfect for my Florida vacation. It can be dressed up or dressed down and looked perfect from day to evening. After being unpacked from my suitcase it definitely needed some warm ironing to smooth out the wrinkles, which was easily accomplished but make sure you leave time to iron before putting it on! I am petite and usually just go with the smallest size, but I wish I had listened to the reviews when people said that the top is very tight. I wish I had sized up, as the interior shelf bra was pressing into my under arm area. I wouldn't hesitate to size up, the dress really does stay up on it's own. Besides that I was really happy with the dress and would recommend it!

Amazing Dress!

Size worn: 40
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I really loved this dress! It was so comfortable and looked and felt very high end. The shelf bra was amazing in that it held the dress up all night (which I usually have a problem with). I also loved the pockets. The downside is that it is very drapey, so if you are looking for a very "slimming" dress, this one is not it. From the side I looked very wide and there was no waist so I also looked pregnant. The picture on the model looks like there is a bit of a waist, but that is just a white part of the dress. I sacrificed looking slim for being comfortable, which was fine by me. The plus was it was such a unique and unusual dress!

Pretty dress... totally shapeless.

Size worn: 38
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Obviously looking at the photos I knew this was going to be an "easy" style to wear - and quite comfortable. For me, though, it really just looked like a towel with a floral pattern. I'm 5'4"/112lbs./Sz 0 and the shorter hem in front hit just above my kneecap - so it wasn't quite short enough to make up for the overall heavy drape of the dress. It's well-made and the print is very pretty, but a little too shapeless for my personal style. Thank goodneed for RTR's hassle-free exchanges!

I've never received so many compliments before on my outfit. Granted I was the bride at my rehearsal dinner, but I really did love this dress especially with the addition of my sister's turquoise belt to accent my waist.

Super easy to wear!

Size worn: 38
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I wore this dress to a "Hawaiian casual" outdoor party and it was perfect! I have a very small chest and cannot typically wear a strapless dress, but the built in bra in this dress fit very snugly and I didn't have to pull the dress up at all during the party. It is quite see through- I wore a slip. I loved the pattern and how swingy the dress was. Plus, the pockets are fun!

I didn't love this dress. The material just kind of hangs, and doesn't have any shape to it. I ended up wearing the other dress I had rented instead.

This breezy, summer frock was somewhat unimpressive in quality of the fabric. But it was flattering, pretty, and cool on a hot spring day.

Fun, comfortable, easy to wear!

Size worn: 48
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Vacation
I unfortunately didn't have time to put this dress into my vacation rotation, but I tried it on and it is really great. The fabric and print look really classy, and if you have the foresight to bring a fun (thin) belt, it makes for a great daytime dress. It is obviously loose, so I wouldn't say it's particularly flattering, but would make for a great walking around or brunch dress.
