Lots of Compliments. Interesting. Fun.
Wore to an office party with work people. The medium absolutely fit me - 5'11 with no boobs. The material is bouncy & spandexy & so forgiving. But I wore the Large to give me a little more length. Medium was just at my fingertips & because it was a work party, wanted to have it longer. Overall an amazing dress: comfortable. You could eat your guts out and not feel fat. Fun to dance in

Great trendy work dress!
This came in my first unlimited shipment and it was the first piece I wore! Could be a little short depending on the figure, but I'm pretty straight and narrow so it worked well. Got lots of compliments!

Love this dress. Very flattering on curvy body. Received tons of compliments.
Cool functioning zipper details. Material hugs body and appeared to cinch the waist because it flares out.

My daughter chose this for her so phone homecoming dance. She loved everything about it.
It fits great on her. The only thing was that one of the skirt "panel" stuck out too much. Other than that it was a very cute fun dress.

Low effort glam
Super flattering cut with great details helps this dress go from day to night. The thick fabric may not be suitable for outdoor summer events but was perfect for my air conditioned event.

Tight in misleading places...
I love the unique print and zipper detail of this dress. However, upon putting the dress on, I discovered it's less A-line and more mini Mermaid. It's very fitted through the waist and far below, then flares out. It appears to only really be flattering for a much slimmer woman. I had hope the larger size would correct it, unfortunately it was still entirely too tight through the mid section, then gapped very strangle through the bust. It's in incredibly cool and unique dress, but only for those with a very slender, straight figure.

A really lovely dress, I chose to go with another backup dress.
It's a lovely dress, however the fabric is a bit heavy and unflattering if you have a shorter torso. The zipper details on the skirt are so fun and they flare out wonderfully.

The thicker material was perfect for a chilly spring wedding with an outdoor ceremony in upstate NY. Perfect length for the event. The dresses arrived in great condition.

Quirky and unusual
I'd put on some weight recently, so I didn't think my usual 4 would fit, but I was wrong: the 6 definitely was loose, gapping a bit at the neckline and not as fitted at the waist as would have been ideal. But I think I was the only one who noticed! The weight and texture of the fabric felt amazing. The skirt zippers offered nifty customizability. I got a LOT of compliments! I would definitely rent this dress again.

Nice dress
This dress fabric is thick and stretchy. It's a pull over dress, no back zipper. The 4 zippers in the skirt are functional. I liked this dress, but it wasn't my favorite.

Perfect for a fall evening wedding and then a night out!
The dress was lovely and I got lots of compliments. I wore this to a hipster wedding in NYC, and then went out to a karaoke bar for the after party without needing to change. Overall, I had a great first experience with RTR and will most definitely be renting again! PROS: The skirt zippers did not ride up at all during the night (pro, since the zippers go ALL the way up if you want them to) and the dress was extremely comfortable and forgiving. I loved that the skirt kept its full structure throughout the night, and the material is stretchy (to get the dress on you slip it on over your head). Perfect weight for a fall wedding, it kept my body very warm and was still comfortable for dancing! CONS: I got the Medium as a back-up size, and although it fit was tighter like I would have preferred, the proportions didn't look right on me like the large did so I wore the large. This might be a tricky dress for a woman with a smaller bust. Also, the top part of the dress had some extra room, so I wore a leather jacket to cover some of the bagginess of the dress.

I received several compliments on the dress. It was form fitting and very flattering!
The fit ran a little larger than normal. I normally wear a medium but I ended up wearing the small. Other than that, it was a great dress! The only thing I was not expecting was that the zippers unzip all the way to the waist! That made me a little nervous as the night progressed.

The print on this is very fun - looks like a finger print.
I wish I had a better pic of the pattern - it is like a finger print. This dress is a very thick material - high quality, maybe knit? You can wear a normal bra. There are 4 zippers (2 front, 2 back) that you can choose the height of. The waist line of this dress is confusing, it looks like fit and flare in the pics, but depending on where the black band hits you, it can be a bit more like a drop waist. I still liked it, but it is something to be aware of if you have a short torso.

Nice meterial, but very odd fit
The fabric is heavier than expected, which should create a better feel and drape. Unfortunately, the black horizontal waistband is situated in a very odd place, so that dress doesn't fit well at all. I am 5-9, and it sits neither at the waist nor the hip. I had my 5-4 daughter try it to see if it fits better on a shorter person, but it looked even worse on her.

Funky party dress!
I rented this dress for a party that had a "funky" theme. It's a pretty crazy print, nice bright color, and there are zippers. The material is super thick so it was perfect for a wintertime event. The fit was unfortunately a bit funky as well. The XS fit perfectly on top and in the waist but the skirt had a strange shape to it where it looked like my thighs were 10x their size, it basically bowed out weirdly. I ended up wearing the small, which had a skirt that fell more normally but the top part was a bit too loose, especially under the armpits. It's was a super fun dress and I received a lot of compliments.

Fun dress!
This dress was a backup dress after the original dress I ordered didn't work out. The dress runs a bit small and I ended up wearing a small instead of x-small, but the arm openings were a little loose and didn't fit as well in the small. The material is thick and a little stretchy, so it was perfect for a fall wedding but would probably be too much in the summer. The bottom part also flares a lot which I wasn't a huge fan of. It isn't my most favorite RTR dress, but it was a fun and unique dress for a wedding and I did get compliments on it. Unfortunately I was too busy having fun to take pictures, but the model picture is pretty accurate in person.

Great design, strange fit
This was one of the backup styles sent when my original pick was unavailable. At first, I loved the design and the sturdiness of the neoprene material. But after trying on both the S and M sizes, neither fit well. The Small was TIGHT, and the Medium was only slightly more comfortable. However, the material bunched up around the waist and the dress didn't fall right on my figure. Too bad because the design really is great - the blue is more subtle in person than on the model photo, and the zippers are sexy & fun.

This dress was unique and fun. I enjoyed wearing it and didn't want to take it off.
I ordered a Small with the Medium as backup (I normally wear a size 4), but the material fit like a comfortable wetsuit - It was very thick, tight material, but stretchy. So, I ended up wearing the Medium as that gave me a little more flexibility without being bulky. I recommend ordering your backup 1 size larger, just in case. There's no zipper in the back, so it was difficult to get on and off without messing up hair/makeup, so I recommend putting the dress on and then fixing your makeup and hair. The zippers on the skirt gave it a cool, edgy look, and I paired it with ankle boots and a cuff bracelet. I typically don't wear fancy dresses, so this fit my style perfectly. I also received lots of compliments on the dress. I wore this to an office Holiday party that listed "business formal" and while the other dresses varied in fanciness, I felt like this dress fit in just fine and the added bonus was that I was comfortable! It wasn't too short to be around co-workers either. Overall, I would highly recommend this dress if you have an edgier style with an eye towards comfort.

All about the details - from the zippers on the skirt to the pattern!
Woah - I was so glad that the larger size was available. My typical size was so small I barely got it on and it was painful to get off. The material is stretchy but very constricting, if that makes sense. The material is also thick - making it nice for a winter photo shoot but would probably be a negative come summertime. I loved the zippers that went all around the skirt and allowed you to adjust how open it is along the skirt. So fun! I thought they were decorative only, but no - they are functional! The pattern pops nicely, especially in photos. Fun rental. Again, Opening Ceremony did not disappoint.

Tight, Tight, Tight
I'm typically a size 4-6. This dress was unbearably tight and uncomfortable. I would probably rent the M , but it was still crazy short on me. Not recommended for tall people. Other notes, the fabric was thick and sturdy.

Everyone loved the zippers.
Dress is a little tight on top, but I squeezed into it. Fabric is heavy- I don't recommend it for warmer weather. Everyone loved the zippers and the design. Note: I added a belt with a buckle for a little bit more emphasis at the waist.

Zippers made this cute dress extra fun!
I rented this dress for the Friday events of this year's Breeder's Cup, and it was cute and flirty, while still being fashionable enough for the day. I wish I had been able to rent a backup size, but since I was renting another dress in two sizes for the weekend as well, I wasn't able to for free. I thought the small would be just fine, but when I pulled it out of the bag, it was comically small. It's a very stretchy material, but it squeezed parts of my body in ways that I didn't like. I almost didn't wear it, but my boyfriend convinced me it looked great. It ended up being comfortable to wear all day, as it stretched out while I was wearing it. I also had it paired with a short leather jacket for the chilly day, so I felt more covered up and comfortable! I loved that you could adjust the zippers on the skirt of the dress, it made the dress really fun to wear!

Didn't love it. Looked much cuter on the model than me.
The fabric is thick and seemed sort of oddly... shaped/wavy/stretched? Not sure. This dress didn't look very flattering on me and I don't think I would wear it out. The back also kept hiking up so perhaps it was just too small for me :-( I'm glad the stylists had thrown some other fun options in the mix because my initial choice ended up being my least favorite of the three dresses I ordered that week!

Comfortable and Fashionable
I wore this to my brother's wedding on New Years Eve. The fabric is thicker, which was nice for a winter wedding, and it was comfortable enough to wear for the entire day (including the 6 hour reception). Although the medium fit me well everywhere else, I wore a size up to make the skirt fall more flatteringly over my hips.

Cute dress
This dress was very cute, I got a lot of compliments on it. I loved the color and pattern, but the fit was off for me. I am petite, and the top was too large. The waist didn't fall in the right place, there were a few bulges of material at the waist line, and the material bulged at the armhole so that my bra would have been showing if I hadn't worn a little jacket. I think this would fit really well on a taller woman, the size was pretty accurate aside from my problems with the top. The material was thick, in a good way for a casual Fall wedding. There is no zipper and the waist and top are meant to be form-fitting, so it was a little bit of a tight squeeze to get on and off. Also, I could have used some Spanx for the waistline if I hadn't worn a jacket. Overall, this was a cute dress with a unique pattern but meant for a taller woman.

Loved the zippers!
The dress was very stretchy so had a lot of give. I ended up wearing the medium because the top was a bit tight. Would have looked fine, I was just more comfortable in the M. I'm more of an apple shape and this was a bit big on the bottom. Would be great for a pear shaped lady. Material felt heavy and great.

Just a bit awkward for my body type
I rented this in the L and the M - I'm usually between a M and L in Opening Ceremony's stretchy stuff as I own a few pieces. In this dress I was a L, but the fit was just really unflattering. I'm pretty tall, with an average length torso, but the waistband on this dress a) didn't hit my natural waist (it hit about 3-4 inches below) and b) the waistband is about 2-3 inches tall, so it sort of engulfed my waist and brought attention to the areas where my waist widens versus just nipping in at the waist in a flattering way. The material is incredible and the print is beautiful, I just wouldn't recommend this unless you have a longer torso and a very defined waist! And despite being structurally sound, the material is not the type to suck you in - it's comfortable but it has a lot of give, so if you want that Herve Leger suck-you-in effect, you can probably comfortably size down.

Material felt great and dress looked fabulous!
No cons about this dress. This was for a late afternoon outdoor wedding in Arizona. It can be warm when the sun it up and a bit chilly when it goes down. The material is thick, so be prepared but perfect for this wedding. Love the zippers all around. It fits true to size. I'd rent this one again!
