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.

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.

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.

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.

Very comfortable. Non-wrinkle fabric. The fabric was a bit heavy for Florida. Zippers stayed in place after hours of dancing.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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

This dress was the perfect sexy/professional.
I had a cocktail party to go to with coworkers, so I didn't want to be too risque - this dress fit the bill. Plus, it's winter and the material is super thick and warmer than a slinky dress. It hugs in all the right spots and flared just where it needed to. Great bright blue color - wish I could own it!

Wore this dress for a more causal night with my friends to celebrate my birthday party. It bunched up on me a little around the back but other than that loved the dress and it was perfect for the night.

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.

Great dress!
First, the pros. This dress looked great and the zippers were very cute. I loved being able to control just how much skin shown at any given time. Cons: for me, there was a little gapping on the top but the bottom was tight. Spanx and a strapless bra were a must. Overall I'm pretty pleased with this dress.

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!

Holiday party
Seemed a bit like a cheerleader uniform, but extremely comfortable and the zippers made for a cute modification. Very comfortable and warm without being hot. Works well for a woman with a small chest and full rear/hips because of the full skirt.

If you want to play it safe....
I am very straight, absolutely no hips, but somehow this made me look "hippy". It is comfortable and I especially like the thick sweater material and high cut neckline. The zippers are super cute but the print is nothing special in person, and to be frank it is too short for work. I wore it with black tights and heeled black boots for extra coverage.

Very unique dress
I received this as a replacement for a New Years dress that came damaged. I loved the way it fit, and how the zippers on the skirt could be adjusted. It was a heavier fabric, so hung very nicely. I was able to wear a regular bra and I wore with spanx as I felt it did show my stomach a little, but with the Spanx it was amazing. It can be conservative, so it would be good to wear to something like a work or family event. I didn't think it was quite the look I was going for on New Years, but ended up wearing another night on my cruise that I was on and loved it. I would recommend wearing with heels for sure, as it could look a little frumpy worn with flats.

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.

TBH the print comes off a little ComicCon for my taste but the dress is absolutely perfect for short girl with hips like myself. Probably the best fitting dress I've ordered from RTR.

SO Comfortable
This dress is incredibly comfortable and is perfect for any body type. The material is thick and stretchy which allows any problem areas to be smoothed out. I found that I should have put my make up on and did my hair after putting on the dress, but like anything, it's fixable. The zippers at the bottom of the dress are adjustable to make the skirt fuller or show more skin. You can get away with a standard bra with this one which is always a great deal

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!
