Everyone LOVED the dress.....and so did I!!!

Overall fit: True to Size

I wore this dress for my 26th birthday and it was everything I wanted. I agree with other people reviews in that the dress is short. Just be aware of that, but other than that I absolutely LOVED IT! The material was thicker than I would have thought, but it wasn't that warm out so I didn't bother me. Definitely not a dress to wear when it is warm out. The size was great and I ended up having a great birthday weekend! I recommend this dress to anyone.

Perfect dress for a night with the girls!

Size worn: S
Overall fit: True to Size

I wore this out for my bachelorette party--loved it! It was a chilly night in Chicago so the thick material made it perfect-- I didn't have to bring my leather jacket with me. I am only 5 feet tall so reading all the reviews from others that this dress ran short made it the winner. It's super comfortable and would definitely recommend it, I wear a 32C bra and went sans a bra for the night. If you wanted to wear a bra with it I think it may be a little tight in the bust area.

Thick & short

Size worn: L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I wanted to make this dress work but it just wasn't practical for my event. It was my birthday party in Miami in May, and the dress is just so thick that I knew I wouldn't want to dance the night away in it. Additionally, it was the kind of short that were I to lift my arms, it would be a little dicey. I did love the pattern and the overall look of it, but I would suggest it for a winter event or a more...stationary evening.

beautiful dress for a colder evening party.

Size worn: L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was beautiful on. The material is thick and stretchy. It was February when I wore it, so I was warm in this dress. it was very form-fitting. I am tall, so I was worried about length. It was a little short for my comfort, but I loved it so much that I didn't want to waste it. I usually am a Medium but opted for the Large in this dress (thank goodness i ordered two sizes!). The medium was just too small. I received compliment after compliment and felt beautiful the whole evening.

Loved loved loved wearing this dress!

Size worn: XS
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I'm always cold at events, so the long sleeve and thicker material were perfect for me! I loved that I did not need to bring a jacket. I'm short (a bit under 5'4'') and very petite, so the shorter tight style was exactly what I was looking for, because usually dresses are too long on me.. but not this one! I loved the length. The lines on the dress were very flattering, and the dress was also comfortable. Also, I was traveling/flying for the wedding so it was great that this is not a dress that wrinkles in your luggage. I would TOTALLY wear again, and loved the RTR experience! I received so many compliments on this dress. Thanks RTR!

I had to wear leggings underneath of this dress because the length is quite short. I wore the dress with heels, but I am only 5'4", and thought it would have been borderline inappropriate at the wedding reception had I not worn the leggings.

I had ordered the small, but ended up wearing the extra-small. The small was a little baggy, and I think the dress looks better tight. The dress looks great with tights and black booties. People were complimenting me all night! Highly recommended!

Nice dress but uncomfortable

Size worn: M
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress was great for a cold evening as if kept me very warm. However, as others have said, it is very short (I'm 5'6") and I felt like the dress kept riding up as I walked. When I lifted my hands, the dress definitely needed to be pulled back down. I have a large bust and felt constricted in the chest area. It was form fitting (skin tight) so eat a small meal. :) To be honest, I wouldn't recommend or rent this dress again.

Birthday dress

Size worn: L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
Everyone loved this dress however I was a bit uncomfortable in it. The material was very very thick and made me so hot. I also have a pear shaped figure and this made me look wider in the hips. Additionally, I am very chesty and it barely zipped up the back where the material was stretched so tight around my boobs.

Perfect for semiformal!

Size worn: S
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This was my second time renting I fell in love with this dress but they were out of any of the sizes I wanted to order as a backup. I decided to ordered this in a Small and another dress as a backup. Luckily, this dress fit perfectly and the other dress didn't end up fitting. Since I'm only 5'2, I was okay with the other reviews saying it was short and it was the perfect length on me! I was also happy that it was so thick because it was 42 degrees the night of my sorority's semi formal. I wouldn't advise renting this dress for anyone who's tall or if it's going to be warm but it's great for anyone who's relatively petite and if the weather's a little cooler!

Warm Winter Look

Size worn: M
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
The small fit like a glove, but was VERY short. I am on the shorter side, but have decent size bum and therefore did not think the length was appropriate, Ended up going with the medium and felt much more comfortable about the length. Still had to keep pulling it down as I walked but worth it for a nice winter look.

Definitely go a size up with this dress. I am 5'6'', 124 lbs. and I thought a Small would be the perfect size but I couldn't even get it on but the Medium fit perfectly. It is very warm and pretty thick material but after about 10 minutes in the dress it became very comfortable. I got a lot of compliments and I think the dress photographs very well. I wasn't as in love with it as I hoped I would be but I did really love it in photos.

Wore this for cousins bachelorette in the city in January. Fit was great. I personally am more hourglass shaped, so this dress was a little short on me.

This dress was fantastic for my 30th birthday celebration! It was 32 degrees and raining so the dress was plenty warm. It was a little tight around the bust, but nothing a non-padded bra couldn't help. The length was shorter than I'm used to for work/church, but perfect for my 5'1" height at a fun party. I loved it!

Overall the fit was great - material is rather thick so made it perfect for a cold night. I paired it with black tights so the length was not really an issue, but I am rather short (5'3) and will say that it was on the shorter side. Very flattering and easy to wear.

Sexy dress for a cold night - super short!

Size worn: M
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I rented the S and the M and, as many other reviewers did, wore the M to get a bit more length. I am not super tall (5'5") and my legs are not very long so I don't normally have a problem wearing shorter dresses, but the S was VERY short (like only an inch or so below my butt in the back). I have a larger/round booty, so if yours is more petite this will probably be less of a problem for you. I didn't notice any major fit differences between the S and the M besides the length. This is a super flattering dress - the print/banded detailing is very flattering and the material is thick and really "holds you in" kind of in the same way that an Herve Leger dress does. It's also very warm, which was a major plus (I wore it with tights on a January night out in NYC).

I rented this dress for my formal dance and let me just say, it ROCKED. I ordered the small and medium, ended up wearing the medium, so I suggest ordering your typical size and 1 size larger. The material was nice and thick (didn't get too hot dancing either) so no jacket needed. Wore it with Steve Madden heels in the Famme style. It's such a slimming and beautiful choice for all body types as well!(:
