**UPDATE** RTR came thru & made it right. We're still BFF's, lol The drama of the wrong dress
This wasn't my original choice for my bachelorette party. I was shipped two black tie gowns instead of my short tulle cocktail dress. Luckily I was flying to Vegas and was able to switch out the gowns for this dress at the RTR store inside the Cosmopolitan (had to pay the difference of $60 bucks, which sucked because it wasn't my fault that they only had two dresses in the whole store that were my size, and that THEY had sent me the wrong dress). Besides all the tears of thinking I'd be dress less for my bachelorette weekend, and dealing with the unexpected expense, I really loved this dress. It's so light and airy.. It has a slight stretch to it, which is why I was able to fit my 36 H boobs in it, lol. Didn't want to give it back. :)

Perfect girly dress for my Bridal shower!
Totally comfortable and girly! Loved the skirt. I don't usually wear full skirts like this, at least I haven't since I was a little girl, but it was perfect! Not too wide and COMFORTABLE! I paired it with Alexis Bittar's Dragonfly Cuff and Chantilly earrings and I also added a matching blue sash to break up all the yellow. The accessories were absolutely beautiful too! It was the perfect compliment to my event!

I love it with the sash! Great job personalizing it.

Gorgeous color, flattering shape, FUN dress.
I rented this dress to replace another I picked out, and I am SO GLAD I wore it. The style is so flattering to my shape, the lace is of a nice quality, and it's a fun style that doesn't look too formal or frumpy at all while keeping my large chest under wraps. I wore it to a movie premiere and people in the crowd told me how lovely my dress was, which was amazing. The color stood out without being too loud. I'd buy this if I could, and will definitely rent again.

It was great choice. Everyone complemented me that dinner and I was so happy with my look.
It was just perfect on me! I wished to keep it! The color at night kinda golden and in the day light kinda dark yellowish

As a first timer, Meredith from the SOHO showroom was so helpful! Thanks, Meredith and #rtr!
My go-to size is usually a 2, but what was available was a size 4. It still fit, and it gave me that extra room to feel extra comfy throughout the night to have some drinks, eat, and dance! It was the perfect length for my 5'1" stature. It's a beautiful, vibrant, bold gold (that works well with my skin tone). The peek-a-boo tulle gives the dress that extra flirty body and bounce. I got a bunch of really nice compliments on the dress:). Also, I think the dress looks way better in person than on the rtr photos. All in all...it was the perfect dress for me:)

Pretty Color
Rented this for a rehearsal dinner. I thought it would be a good dress to hide my pregnant baby bump, but once the night went on and i ate, it just became uncomfortable because the seam in the middle felt like it was cutting into my stomach. I still received a lot of compliments on it though.

I loved the dress. I received so many compliments on the color. It's was really fun and comfortable!
It fit pretty true to size. I'm always between a 6 and 8 and I went with the 8. Sometimes dresses are too tight around my bust bit this for perfect.

I really loved this dress!!
I was happy to have my husband around to zip up the dress - there was no way that I could've done it myself - and then zipping it up to try it on, the zipper broke! So we had to use a pair of pliers to work the zipper up and down - definitely something I couldn't have done on my own haha! I added a purple belt to break up all of the yellow and it worked well. I wear a size 10/12 and the size 10 fit great! I didn't try on the 12, so I can't say how differently that would've fit. Overall, I really liked the dress and received several compliments on it.

I wore this to an outdoor wedding and ended being the only person with a bright dress!
It runs true to size, but there's definitely some give, you can wear a regular bra, and it twirls beautifully. I would recommend spacing out the tulle so it doesn't get bunched up. It's a golden yellow color. I loved it! I paired it with the Alexis Bittar Dragonfly Cuff like a previous renter did. Great dress, I want to buy it!

Beautiful dress, super easy fit! The color is gorgeous and it was a super easy style to wear. A little loose up top so I would size down if you are tinier in the waist/bust!

Not flattering
this was a backup, and I specifically said I did not look good in this mustard yellow. When I opened it, I didn't even try it on. The color is only good if you are very tan, and the material was cheap looking.

Compliments aplenty!
This dress came as a complete surprise, since I never actually reserved it. RTR sent it as a last minute substitute because the yellow ML dress I had ordered in a second size became unavailable at the last minute. This dress was a very similar color. I was very scared of the style at first. I always loved the Nah Khan dresses on the models, but worried they would look silly and short and fluffy on me. Well, here was my chance to try one; but in a 0?? I was doubtful. I am not usually a 0, because I'm short and kind of plump. But lo and behold, this dress fit like a glove! The fitted waist hit me right at my natural waist, the length was perfect, and it actually balanced my shape beautifully. I didn't have to worry about sucking it in all night long, and the sleeves are comfortable and unrestrictive. The color was a beautiful golden yellow. I got so many compliments that it was such "cute" dress. I felt like a somewhat sexy pageant girl, and I loved every second!! The only reason I think it runs large is that I normally would never fit in a 0. A wonderful, unique and well made dress, no other wedding guests wore anything like it! I can't wait to get more Nah Khan dresses again!!

Beautiful Dress!
I think I got the second most dress compliments that night! This is my first event since having a baby, and my first time ever using RTRW, and I must say the dress delivered. I'm wide-hipped, so it was a little short on me with the lining just barely covering my backside. It's just stretchy enough to hug curves, but not so much that I felt (and looked) suffocated. The size 8's bodice was meant for someone taller than I am, so I had to keep straightening it for pictures, but whatever. I LOVED this dress.

Nice dress. Just not for me.
Very stretchy and comfortable. Runs a little big. The tool is a little fluffier that I thought it would be. Needs a belt to break up waste.

Fit great
I didn't end up wearing this dress - I had ordered it as a back-up. It fit really true to size (if anything, a little big). I generally wear a 0 or 2 and the 2 fit well. I am 5'6'' and I felt like my legs looked long due to the shape of the dress. Probably would look better on a more petite frame.

Love the tulle skirt, makes this dress unique!
This dress was perfect to wear to a wedding after having had a baby. I normally wear an 8 or 10 in dresses, but given that I had a 3 month old baby and wasn't back to my normal size yet, I opted for a 10 and 12 to rent. Both dresses fit me, but I opted to wear the 12 as it as a little bit looser in my middle. I loved being able to wear a normal bra with this dress. This dress is eye catching and I was in love with the tulle skirt. I am only 5'5 and the dress felt a little on the short side. I definitely wouldn't want it any shorter. I had to be careful when bending down. You really can't go wrong with this dress!

It was the perfect dress for a little backyard wedding party!
Fits very well! YOU DON'T HAVE TO WEAR A BRA! The color looks beautiful and the lace around the neckline was so pretty. I didn't wear a necklace to keep it simple and to not take away from the dress. DON'T wear dangling bracelets because it can get hooked on the lace! Keep it simple. That's the only con I have to say about this dress. The length was perfect for me, I'm 5'5. I received tons of compliments and it actually looks good with flat sandals or heels.

I normally wear a size 8. This was a little loose but the 6 was too tight. The 8 looked great and was very comfy. The color is beautiful. The yellow and orange colors were great for a fall wedding. Very pleased with the dress!

This dress is incredible! I received so many compliments all night! It's also very comfortable!
This dress runs a little large. I'm a true 10, but wore the 8 comfortably. You can wear a real bra! It does run a little short; I'm 5'2 and I was occasionally worried about being exposed, so taller ladies beware. But really it was so comfortable and so much fun to dance in, I really wanted to keep it.

The hit of an outdoors summer gala! The tulle puffy part begins below the hip so it's flattering.
I ordered both size 2 and 4. Both fit, but the 4 just "moved" better. I'm quite short (under 5'), and the length was perfect. The waist hit in the perfect spot as well. I'm not sure how someone of tall or even average size would fare.

I rented this dress for a work related party. The color is a deep golden yellow and looks great with nude heels. Very flattering for curvy girls. The skirt has a nice poof which really accentuates a tiny waist. Had so much fun dancing in this dress!

Busty girls should rent.
The color is beautiful. The lace around the collar had to be taped to the skin because it wouldn't lay flat. I went with a size 12 because it was snug in the bust area (I'm a size E). Overall I was very happy with the dress and would rent again.

Lots of compliments, great color!
I wore this for a wedding, I received both sizes 10 and 12, probably could have pulled off the 10, but played it safe with the 12. It's great for curvy hips because it hides them :) The tulle is very fluffed, so just keep an eye on it to straighten it out after sitting. Would definitely rent this one again.

Amazing, beautifully colored dress
I had already worn the Time of Your Life Dress for another wedding, so I knew how this one would look and fit--I didn't even try on the 4.. It's a very forgiving cut, especially for pear shapes. Both dresses, I have had tons of compliments, beyond anything else I've ever worn. You do have to smooth out the tulle underlayers (by hand is fine) before wearing, but it requires no ironing or steaming, which is a plus. I LOVED this dress.

LOVE THIS DRESS!
I wore this dress to a Derby party and absolutely loved it! The color is exactly the same as the photo, it is quite short (but I am quite tall), The dress runs slightly big - I usually wear a 4, but wore a 2 in this. Luckily there was dancing at my party - nothing beats dancing in a tutu which is how this felt!

Perfect for a derby - great fit, soft, comfortable, flowy
Wore this to the Virginia Gold Cup. Beautiful tulle gave it a great shape for me. I'm an athletic build with muscular legs and muscular back (thanks to years of swimming), so it accentuates anyone with a small waist and muscular build. Super soft material, great lining (didn't wear a bra! But I am a B cup). I think it pairs great with blue accessories (I wore blue and white t-strap heels). Beautiful! Definitely recommend for an outdoor summer-y affair.

This dress made me feel beautiful and confident!
This dress was perfect for the occasion and I loved how it fit me! I wore this dress for my engagement photo shoot and then for my engagement barbecue party that day. I felt very confident during my photo shoot as a result and received compliments at my engagement party. It's a very flattering dress and the flare makes your legs look good. The tulle made the dress for me--perfect for a spring day. I added a brown belt for that extra touch. My first rent the runway experience was a success.
