This dress is amazing! The fit is so flattering and very slimming! I went a size down and I liked it better because it hugged my body in a flattering way that accentuated my curves. I got a lot of compliments on how good this dress looked, and I definitely plan on renting it again!

Great bright colors for an early spring wedding!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small

It is a very tight fit. The fabric is incredibly stretchy but I definitely had to go a size up to 8 from my usual 6. Slimming and elegant fit with young bright colors! Perfect for a early spring afternoon wedding!

W/blazer, was fun/spunky/springy @ the office. Tight & thick material but stretchy. Semi-comfortable

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
Fits tight and rides up when you walk, but the material is like neoprene so it stretches. I wore it to work with pumps and a navy blazer (since I couldn't go to the event I planned to wear it at). Worked for a day at the office, but would not have been professional enough for a more formal day (board meeting, presentation, etc). Makes your hips look kinda big (see pic), but I didn't feel fat or anything - esp since I had a blazer over it. Comments I got: "Nice dress" "Springy" "bright and fun" "your very dub step today" (dont know what that last one means). I would not rent again, but did not regret having it and enjoyed my day wearing it.

The print of the dress is beautiful. The colors were perfect for Easter weekend!

The dress was not as pictured in the description. The back of the dress on the website does not have a split in the back. However the one I received had a split. I thought this dress was the same as the Aqua Maze dress on Nicole Miller's website. The split started to curl inside as I walked. I received sizes 4 & 6. Normally I wear a size 4, maybe the dress is for someone with smaller hips than mine. The 6 did not fit as snugly as the 4 and still had the split curling issue. I do not recommend this dress if you have hips!

So glad I stepped out of my comfort zone for this colorful dress!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I picked this dress for a Hindu wedding ceremony, because practically everything I own is black and a few people out there on the internet said solid black might not be appropriate. I'm so glad I went out of my comfort zone and rented this dress! The cap sleeves and length made this totally appropriate to wear in the temple, while the tight fit and gorgeous design kept it fun. Anyone who normally wears spanx or feels self-conscious in tight dresses shouldn't worry - the fabric is stretchy but also very thick, so you feel like any problem areas are held in. This dress got a bunch of compliments and the multicolor design made it easy to accessorize.

The process was very easy! From the order, to the receipt of the dresses to the return it worked!!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
The dress was very pretty. It was perfect for the Kentucky Derby themed gala I attended. The fit was very clingy which was good and bad. It was good because no spanx were required, but bad because I needed an "extra" padded bra to wear underneath. It was great to have the two sizes. When, I first tried on the Size 2 (my normal size), it was so clingy. I thought that the Size 4 would be perfect. However, when I tried on the 4 it was too big in the waist.

Such a great dress!! Will rent again! Excellent for hourglass curves; Showed a little cleavage and hugged every curve. I wore Spanx still since it's made to be tight. I Usually wear a 12 and it fit true to size. Fabric was very rich with great structure, very well made! I got a ton of compliments!

Very tight, stretchy, and rides up when I walked, but pretty

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small

I wore this to my daughter's Senior Banquet. I ordered a 6 and an 8 because reviewers said it runs small. I usually wear a 4 or 6. The dress was lovely....great colors and very well made. The length was perfect too. Overall it's not a flattering dress. I did get tons of compliments on it but I am very thin but have a small amount of belly fat, and this dress somehow made me look a little wide in the tummy, almost like I was in my first trimester of pregnancy. I am happy I ordered it and wore it, but it bothered me that I had to keep pulling it down. I would not rent it again.

Felt great post baby!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This great was a last minute trade but I was very happy with it. The fabric is thick, but lined & has a bit of stretch. Combined with the pattern & flattering lines, this dress hid all the trouble areas while still hugging my curves in a flattering way - and I have a lot of curves! Since it was a last minute rental & probably few sizes, there was 2 small areas of gapping where the seam had busted along the hips - but nothing a few safety pins couldn't fix & nobody ever knew. Had a ton of compliments all night. And the customer service was great - throwing in a pair of earrings to complete the look since the backup size for my original choice was unavailable

A modern take on the "wiggle" dress.

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Wore this to an outdoor weekend wedding. This dress is stunning and fit like a glove. Gals, don't be afraid to wear this dress TIGHT; that's how it should fit. It is essentially a "wiggle" dress. I wore the 2; my backup - a 4 - technically "fit" me as well, but it had areas of loose gapping in the waist, neck, and shoulders. Bear that in mind when you order, and don't choose this if you're not comfortable wearing something body-hugging. However, if you love your shape (especially your hips and butt!) this dress will make you look and feel amazing. Two notes: I did find that the zippers on both dresses were very worn. I think this is from constant dry cleaning. It wasn't bad, but when trying on both, I was a little nervous I might break them. (Thankfully, I didn't!) Also, another reviewer mentioned the split in the back. Yes, there is one, and it's attached fully to the lining of the dress. If you lift the dress to, say, use the restroom, you have to make sure to line it back up perfectly, or else the split will "curl". If you don't want to worry about fussing with the lining, this may not be a good choice for you. If I actually owned the dress, I'd probably cut the lining along the bottom so that it didn't pull on the split at all. It didn't bother me, but I read all the reviews here in detail, so I want to make sure to share that with the rest of you. The dress is very colorful, which I loved. I paired it with the Kate Spade Hot Pink Statement earrings, which looked made for it. In summary, I loved the dress and was sad to send it back. Numerous friends who saw pictures told me I needed to "buy that dress immediately because it makes you look amazing." That's a pretty ringing endorsement! This was also my first rental from RtR, and it was seamless from start to finish.

Great dress for my outdoor Bridal Shower!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I ordered the 10 and the 8. The 10 never showed and I am in between sizes right now so the 8 was a little snug for me , but would probably fir someone who is a true 8. When I got it, the stitching on the sides of the hips and on the butt had holes in it. Luckily there is a liner so no one saw my spanx. I tried to sew it and deal with it because the dress is gorg. I got so many compliments. It has some stretch to it which is nice. Side note: The day after I wore this dress, I saw someone on Good Morning America wear the same dress!

Got TONS of compliments

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
This dress looked amazing on, but it runs very very small. I usually wear a 4, and I sized up to 6. I probably could have gotten away with an 8. The down side: because the fabric is so thick and stretched so tight, BOTH the 4 and 6 rentals I got had holes in them when they arrived...probably not noticeable without trying the dress on. I ended up pinning the size 6 and wore it anyway. This is a great dress but be prepared to do some outfit surgery!

The color combination was perfect for a summer wedding. Great fit and length.

I loved wearing this dress. It held everything in without need for Spanx. It was a little thicker than I would have liked for the weather, but once indoors worked out well. I am tall and the dress hit perfectly at the knee to make it appropriate while the scoop neck line made it flattering and fun. No need for a necklace since the pattern and cut would overwhelm it but chandelier earrings would look nice with it.

different than anything else!!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I order the 4 and the 2 and wore the 2. the 4 was a good fit but the stomach area was baggy so I went with the 2 which was a little tight but manageable. the slight problem I had was only when pulling the dress back down after using the restroom, the liner wouldn't lay right like when I first pulled it up and would cause the slit in the back to not lay right. the material was stretchy and hugged my body good and it was also a little heavy (it was hot sitting in the sun) I have a smaller top and bigger/athletic hips

This dress was one of my favorites from RTR. It had really vibrant colors and thick material. It does hug your figure, but the material is forgiving (I was 12 weeks pregnant- with a little bump and could wear it!). TIP- get the Kendra Scott earrings to match- they look GREAT with this dress!

This dress was overnighted to me after my 1st choice was stained, and I loved it! Thanks Justine at customer service! The 2 was a great fit, but I had trouble zipping it up so I wore the 4, which also fit perfectly. It's a thick material, and good for cooler weather. I was comfortable all day in this dress and didn't need any accessories, as the dress speaks for itself! Another RTR hit!

Form fitting and flattering

Great print, flattering. Wore for a charity event and felt like I was dressed appropriately as some people were in cocktail attire and some were business casual. Thick, very tight. It hit me around knee length so I did feel a little restricted in my movement. My only complaint is that around the tummy area, the pattern on the size 4 is a little darker, making it look like there was a shadow from my stomach bulging were there wasn't. I know this is minor, but it did irk me a little bit. Overall a great dress.

Pros: Loved the lines on this dress - very flattering! The fabric is also thick enough to where I didn't feel the need to throw on the spanx. Cons: My arms are a little bigger so I felt like I was pulling at the sleeves throughout the night so it wouldn't constrict them so much. If you are nervous about the arms, I would size up.

Great Work Appropriate Party Dress!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I rented this dress for a work party. The colors are great, the piping is dark navy not black. The material is super thick but stretchy. I wore this at an April. I would not recommend for summer event because the material was not breathable. Thankful for the stretch because my back up size of a 4 was not available so I squeezed into the 2. The length, cap sleeves, and neckline made this appropriate for a work event. The slim fit and piping gave is a little sex appeal. I was sad to take it off at the end of the night!
