i was unsure about the sizing so i did the live chat to ask someone at RTR how the dress fit. she told me to order a size down, and her advice was perfect. i usually have to order a size up because of my bra size and big butt (hourglass figure for sure), but this dress leaves a pretty good amount of space for your girls to breathe, and then it tapers to the waist beautifully and flares out on the butt. perfect for my body shape!

Vey Flattering. Fitted in the waist. The a-line cut is very forgiving for curvier hips.

A day dress that could easily be worn at night with gold jewelry. To fit across the shoulders it was a little roomy in the waist, but overall a flattering fit.

Longer than it looks on the model. I'm 5'6" with a long torso and it came to an inch above my knee. Best if you have a waist.

In a sea of black and neutral colored clothing, this dress completely stood out!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I love the color on this dress. I received many compliments about how unique and adorable it was. The only reason I did not give it a five is because the sleeves are pretty tight and it made it difficult to really dance my shoes off. The next day my shoulders were sore, but the pain was completely worth it! Love this dress and I would definitely wear it again, just not to an event I plan on dancing a lot at. A great pick if you want to stand out but still look put together!!! Overall I felt the dress was very much true to life, the size. I would not recommend for women that are self-conscious of their arms because the cut of the sleeve is not exactly the most flattering.

The dress is more beautiful in person than in the pictures. It was a little big around the waist, but other than that, it fit well. The arms are a bit small, so make sure you wont need to do too much dancing in this one!

I rented this one for the Oaks Race (the Friday before the Derby). The color is fantasitic and gets you to stand-out in the crowd. The dress ran a bit large and a 4 would have probably fit better. I also had a difficult time pairing it with the right shoes, so now I'm thinking I need to expand my shoe collection.

Fun and Flirty!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size

This is the type of dress that you could wear to the office and then out at night. It was fun, with a flattering cut (High neck, flity sleeve, great lenght). I wore out for fun night in NYC and it was comfy and colorful and I got a ton of compliments. I am trim through waist with moderate bust and the 4 felt a little snug around my bust. That said, a 6 would have swam on me. So, for the bustier of women, this might not be a great choice b/c it didn't give as the night wore on.

I wore this to a bridal shower and it was perfect. The color and print were a standout. I wore it in June and do not think the dress or fabric were too wintery at alll. The fit is very flattering overall. Like some other reviews mentioned, the bust and arms are a bit tight

I wore this to a baby shower and it's the perfect combo of trendy casual and class. The colors are vibrant and bright, the fabric is thick and the dress is well-made. Girls with a pear-shaped figure like me, this is the dress for you! It's so comfortable yet so cute and flirty. You won't have to worry about how many of those yummy finger sandwiches you eat! Great rental choice!

I LOVED this dress. First of all, I was thrilled when I saw it on the website and rented immediately for a luncheon. I ordered my size and then was contacted by RTRW that they did not have the additional size available. Not having worn the dress, I was kind of nervous - didnt matter whatsoever. I love love loved this dress. I wore my exact size and it fit perfectly. I will def be renting this again - perfect for luncheons, showers, etc.

Perfect for my Bridal Shower!

At first, I thought that I had received the wrong dress because what looked yellow on my computer screen is actually more of a spring/jade green. I was surprised, but I loved it! The pink band across the mid-section is actually higher than the natural waist, and the skirt's flare starts at about the hip. If you have a wider hip, or that's where you start to curve (like me), this dress does add a little "volume." This is great dress for a daytime luncheon or party!

Beware: that beautiful golden yellow color is actually closer to lime green. The top was huge and the skirt wasn't wide enough for my hips, so I sent it back.

The dress fits really tight. Like other reviews stated, it's very hard to lift your arms. It was super tight in the bust. I almost wanted to go up a size for that reason, but the dress fit in the waist prrfectly

Loved the actual dress and wish it had fit. I ordered the 6, and it fit in the waist and length. But, the arms and chest were very tight and I decided It would be uncomfortable to wear, so went with a different option.

The fit is a little snug in the chest area. If you are larger in this area, you should size up. I am only 5'0" and the length was at knee level. Otherwise very flattering and material very nice. Got lots of compliments!

Cute but too heavy for summer

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size

Dress was cute. Weight of fabric was too heavy for a summer wedding. I have a short torso and it was a little too long in the torso. I could have made it work but it would have been too hot. Glad I had a back up.
