I wore this dress for an engagement party and loved it! It is super comfortable & very flattering.
I usually wear a small but had to order a medium since they were out of my size. It was a little big in the arm holes and I had extra material in the back but overall I still felt fabulous in it. The picture of the dress on RTR shows a peep-hole in the back, the dress I received did not have this cutout; it was still very pretty just a little different than what was pictured on the site. I loved this dress so much; I wouldn’t hesitate to rent it again.

Fun, comfortable dress for a date night or night out with the girls.
Fit true to size. Need strapless bra or bra w convertible straps. Dress photographs black and red, but looks more sparkly grey in person.

Very comfortable, lots of compliments!
I usually wear a 2 or 4, and the small was a perfect fit. The dress I received was slightly different than the dress pictured. It did not have the small cutout over the lower back, which was a little disappointing. However, as soon as I put it on, I completely forgot about it! I did not want to take it off. The material is very thick, which is great for cooler weather. I intend to rent this again if I don't buy it. I rented this to wear on my birthday for going out to lunch and dinner with family and my boyfriend, and it transitioned well from day to night.

Great Dress!
I rented this dress for a wedding in Southern California and it was perfect for the occasion. I rented the small and medium and both fit, but I was just more comfortable in the medium...really could have gone with either. The fabric is heavy weight but was not hot at all. I received so many compliments and a friend even went online to buy the dress while we were at the wedding!

The box arrived it was basically the first birthday present I got to open!
The fit was great. I have a large chest and was worried about the fit but was able to get away without a strapless bra! The length was perfect, just above the knee, and the fabric is thick and very comfortable. The is dress also did not have the keyhole that was pictured and I did miss it a little bit. I also wore booties with this dress instead of pumps because it has an edgier feel to it. All and all I give this dress a solid A!

Perfect for a Birthday Party!
Rented this dress to wear for my daughter's first birthday party. It was a ladybug theme so this was the closest I could get without looking silly. The dress was so comfortable and looks great on. The skirt flares in just the right spot! I put a collared shirt under it because it was winter to make it a bit more seasonal. One of my faves. Can't wait for another RTR sale so I can buy it!

Swingy, comfortable and fab
I rented this dress to wear to a November wedding and the thicker fabric was a bit cozier than other fabric options, which was nice (I wouldn't recommend wearing this in warm weather). I wore the Medium, which was pretty tight around my bust (I'm a 34DD), but fit well elsewhere. The length hit about mid-thigh. The print was super cute and it was really comfortable to wear all night, while also wrangling my two year-old. My biggest issue was that the straps are a pretty extreme racer-style, making even my racerback bra would start to peak out. If I rented again, I'd take the L, just to give my boobies more room. ;-)

Very cute print
This was my backup dress, and while I thought it was cuter than my original pick, it didn't fit me great. I'm short, and this dress was too long in the torso for me. Too bad, I would have liked to have worn it.

Fabulous and Comfy!
Rented this dress for a birthday trip to The Parker in Palm Springs and it was perfect! Super chic yet very comfortable - I had no problems eating a full birthday meal including dessert which isn't always the case with fancy dresses. Would definitely rent again!

Very nice cut on the top of the dress
The material is thick and I'm 5'8 so the dress was pretty short and would come up when I sat down. but, overall it was very flattering but a bit tighter around the waist than I expected. I would rent it again!

Cute dress, maybe for someone taller.
This was my backup dress; it really wouldn't have worked anyway. The proportions of this dress seemed like it would fit someone taller/longer; the armholes were too large, showing a large portion of any bra under my arm. The fabric was nice; the dress looked a little more formal than what it may appear in the website photo.

Just enough shimmer
The picture doesn't show it, but the dress is actually more of a dark gray with a little shimmery pattern. The material is pretty forgiving, and looked great with sparkly heels for NYE.

color/pattern
this dress is so comfortable but still very sexy. the color is more of gray than black, which I couldn't tell by the picture. I wore it for a friend's wedding and felt gorgeous and got lots of compliments. The fabric feels great on- not too heavy but enough weight to feel like you're covered. I forgot to pack my bra (typical!) and was able to go braless without being exposed.

This dress ran a little big, but I absolutely loved it. I was complimented all night on it.
The shape of the dress is very flattering and it is a very comfortable dress. It runs a little large. The extra small was even a little big on me and I am typically a size 2.

Fun, Flirty Dress! You'll get LOTS of compliments!
I rented this dress to attend a friends January wedding. I ordered a Medium and a Large. the ONLY difference between the two was the length. The fabric is nice and hick & stretchy, will fit you like a glove. The color is different in person than on the photo. it's definitely more of a grey than black. Still goes well with a black heel. I did the "Mystery Bling", and they sent me the necklace shown in the model, super fun and a great statement piece. It arrived on time, and is so easy to return. Loved the whole process, Cant wait to RTR again!

I love the pattern on the dress!!! It was comfy and movable.
The dress is tight fitted but has a skirt also! The neck/arm hole line was a different fit but definitely did not affect the overall dress!

rehearsal dinner
So perfect for a pear. Fit like a glove, no need for a bra. Also was very flattering the way it flared out on the hips. I want to own this dress. My sister is a size 0/2 and rented the small and said it looked terrible and was too big. So be careful if you're tiny.

Comfortable, functional & flattering!
I absolutely love the fabric of this dress! It was thick enough that I felt secure, yet it wasn't too tight or hot. Since I'm petite (5' 2"), a lot of dresses tend to be a little too long for me; however, this dress hit a few inches above the knee, which I felt was appropriate for a fancy dinner date with my boyfriend. I also felt that it definitely flattered my shape. I'm a little wider in the hips, but the silhouette of this dress made me love my curves! I ended up pairing it with nude pumps and a blazer that I had in my closet that just happened to match perfectly. The only downfall of this dress is that it is not completely bra friendly - plan on going braless or wearing a strapless one.

Snug, comfortable, and cute
I wore this for my birthday party. It's very snug, yet comfy. I wouldn't recommend anyone with a large bust to wear this dress as it would be difficult to breathe in/not a good cut for that body type. The fabric is thick/expensive-feeling and more sparkly than in the photos. Very cute, flirty and appropriate for any season.

Me in this dress was "gift enough"!
I wore this for my honey's birthday date. He loved it and I loved it too. At first I wanted it to be black but the shiny gray was actually really pretty. The dress is a little long in the torso for us shorties. I belted the dress and cuffed the dress underneath it to make it a perfect fit. I couldn't make my convertible bra work with this dress so I had to be on strap duty. It didn't bother me that it showed but it may bother others. Due to the strap and the long torso, I give 4 stars. Oh and the dress was short on me, which is a good thing! Sorry I didn't get any frontal shots. It was all about him that night.

Runs a little small but pretty colors and the fabric is a thick enough for cooler weather. Didn't end up wearing it because it accentuated my hips too much.

Great dress!
I wore this out with my husband on a date but I didn't get a picture of it. It was a beautiful fit, great colors and fit like a glove. It was a heavy fabric so it was comfortable to wear in the winter with tights.

Very comfortable and slimming dress!
The dress is great for winter! It's thicker and warm. You can't wear a regular bra with it unless you are okay with your straps showing slightly, even if it's racerback style. Because of the fabric, it felt borderline too casual for a wedding, but with heels it was fine. Very slimming! Also, it holds it's shape without wrinkles really well! I sat in a car for two hours before getting to the wedding and it looked like I just put it on.

The perfect dress for my 21st!
I wore this dress for my 21st birthday party. Not many girls wear dresses out this time of year so I had to make sure I could find one that was still casual enough to fit the scene. It was perfect! The dress is really stretchy so it was extremely comfortable. I could have even probably worn an extra small. The dress looked really cute with tights and booties as well.

Cute for Florida wedding!
Fits great on short girls. The colors are a bit darker in person than in the picture. Went nicely with the necklace pictured as well and the gold alligator bracelet that's also rentable on RTR. It's not lightweight- it's kind of thick and stretchy. Was perfect for a January wedding in southern FL.

Dancing away and all the wonderful compliments I received on my dress!! :)
I typically wear XS and the dress fit perfectly. My legs are short so the dress was a tad longer on me than the model, but it was perfect for the evening wedding I wore it for. The material is heavy but wasn't hot, even when dancing! I received so many compliments on it throughout the night, my husband even heard ladies talking about it and RTR on their way to the bathroom! It was perfect and I can't wait for the next event when I get to rent again!

Cute Pattern!
This dress is super cute and comfy. I don't think it's dressy enough to wear to a formal affair (fabric isn't right for that) but great for a party. The color is great! The grey is a little shimmery but not so much that it bothered me. Overall would rent again.

Comfortable party dress!
I rented this dress for a bachelorette party. I was pleasantly surprised by how comfortable the stretchy fabric was. The small and the medium fit almost exactly the same, even length. The only con was that the dress didn't flare as much or look as pleated as it does on the model. Overall, I was pleased with my rental, especially how comfortable it was!

Very comfortable, great design, perfect for a winter wedding!
This dress was great. The pattern was really cool and fun, and the style was a nice balance of sophisticated and fun. The wedding I attended was on top of a mountain, so it was so nice to wear a thicker-material dress. I wore a blazer with it and booties and it looked great. I'm 5'7" and was concerned about a short skirt, but that was not the case. For an even slimmer look, spanx might be a good addition, but it was pretty flattering. Unlike other reviews, I did not think the arm holes were a problem. Would definitely rent again, but only for colder weather.

I got tons of compliments. Great for a wedding.
Holds the girls in very well. I recommend the sticker petals for coverage. Caution to the short girls: the torso runs long, so the dress tended to roll over itself on my waist. The length was perfect (I don't like super short). The fabric is great for winter and for concealing some problem spots. Pear girls: you want this dress.

The dress fit perfectly. I got so many compliments.
The dress fit pretty true to size. I am usually a size 4 and have hips and a butt but the small fit great. The material is not exactly what I thought it was going to be. It is definitely not a summer dress because the material is thicker but for the event in March it was perfect. I got so many compliments and felt great in it. I would have loved to keep it!
