So cute, but way too big.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is much darker and almost has a greenish tone in person. It's got a lot of sparkle and I think it would probably photograph beautifully. It arrived still with the tags on (in size XS) so it was in perfect shape, but I unfortunately wasn't able to wear it. It's much too big in the waist and chest for me, and the straps were quite long. I wouldn't recommend renting this dress unless you are a size 2 or 4. If you wear a 0 regularly, it's much too large. It is on the shorter side.

Just the right amount of sparkle!

Size worn: S
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I ordered this dress for holiday party. When it came I was pleasantly surprised by the sparkle in the dress. It’s much prettier in person than online. I ordered the S and M and ended up wearing the S (which is my normal size). The dress was rather large in the bust area and went much lower than the photo online shows. I had to safety pin it to make it less revealing. The length was good, not too short. The back is super cute! I got lots of compliments at the party. It was perfect for the occasion. Another happy rental!

Super Cute Dress But Made for the Tall & Slender!

Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Such an adorable dress - however I would recommend this dress for someone who is at least 5'6" with a bust of 32 C or 32 D. I have a shorter torso - only 5'2" and the top of the dress was about 3 to 4 inches too long so I had to tape the straps in the back with tape and wear a cardigan. The part of the dress that has the bow does not give at all so you must have a small rib cage/ frame for it to fit. I was in a pinch since the original dress I had ordered from RTR did not come in time (UPS delay) so I at least had a dress to wear but overall this was not the dress for me. You can not wear a bra, so you have to have some chest for this dress. This is also a very good dress for disguising your mid section! LOVED, just not for me.

I wore this to my sorority's formal and I got soooo many complements on this dress!

Size worn: M
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I am normally a size 10, and this fit perfectly at the waist but the top was a little loose and the cut was much lower than in the picture on the site. I wear a 30DD bra, so its not like I shouldnt be able to fill it out, but its as if the straps were too long for my torso. I adjusted it with tape, however, I opted to use some tape I had left over rather than the tape from RTR which was a mistake because it stopped being sticky, unlike the heavy duty stuff I tried at the RTR showroom. I would definitely rent this again, and I have a feeling I might see some of my sisters in it at our next event. Also, it is MUCH sparklier than the photo lets on, absolutely gorgeous and and awesome party dress!

Beautiful dress-but made for females with large breasts.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
This dress came in as a surprise, wasnt a dress I would have ordered. Very pretty dress, a lot more sparkle to it, then the pictures show. The back detail is very nice, and the dress, overall is very nice. However, it is a very specific fit-its made fro a slender woman, with large breasts. I am 5'9, 130lbs, usually wear a 4, sometimes a 6. The stylist sent me a size M (which I knew right away, would have been too big), but it fit perfect in the rib cage area, and everywhere else, except the bust area, I'm a 32B, if I was a 34D or larger-this dress would have fit perfect.

I got a lot of compliments on this dress and felt really great in it

Size worn: XS
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
This dress runs quite large... I usually wear a Medium (size 8ish) and I wore the XS in this dress with absolutely no complaints. It's also WAY more low cut than the RTR picture shows. I didn't mind, but it also restricts from being able to wear a bra. I'm lucky in that I live in NYC and was able to visit the showroom to try this on, I don't think I would have rented it otherwise, and I certainly would not have known to rent such a small size- but it's really a great dress!

The material is really pretty and shiny - more so than the image shows.

Size worn: S
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I'm usually somewhere between a small and a medium, so when I saw that this ran large, I opted for a small. Unfortunately, it was still way too big in the waist and bust (under my arms) so I wasn't able to wear it.

Fun NYE Dress!

Size worn: XS
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
Rented this dress for NYE. It runs a bit big so the XS was perfect. A warning to those planning to rent this dress, it is EXTREMELY low cut (way more low cut than it shows on the model). I had to use a LOT of fashion tape to avoid a wardrobe malfunction. Once the girls were secure, the dress was fantastic. I received lots of compliments :)

I was impressed with the delivery. Dresses arrived one day ahead of schedule. Properly packaged. Both dresses were clean and beautiful. However, both dresses the small and medium size had zipper issues. The zipper did not work on both dresses. I will not be wearing the dress, but was satisfied with service.

Sparkly, fun, flirty

Size worn: S
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this as bridesmaid dress and her only request was that the dress be sparkly, and it was perfect! The dress ran large, I would normally have ordered a medium and maybe a large for a second size, but I definitely needed the small in this dress. It's not as short as it looks in pictures, but it is definitely very low cut, you may need to safety pin it as I did. The bad of the dress is really cute and looks great with hair up.

I was so disappointed that I couldn't wear this.

Size worn: None

Unfortunately, this dress is just not meant for anyone with a small chest. I ordered it in a 0 and 2 based on reviews, and while both fit my wait perfectly, the top was gigantic for my 32A chest. It's a gorgeous dress though! I had to seriously talk myself out of taping myself in, even though it still would've looked a mess on me. Hah

pretty dress

Size worn: XS
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress fits extremely large. I normally wear a medium in dresses but I had to wear the xs. The bust was still big even though I am a 36C and the V is a lot deeper than what it looks like in the picture. The color is different in person but still pretty. Overall, a nice dress but be prepared to have to pin the bust area.

I found the the dress of the cut to be very unflattering. The from cheat cut was way to low and wide for my body and I didn't feel comfortable wearing this dress to a holiday party for fear of constantly readjusting!

A sparkly LOW CUT lil number!

Size worn: S
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This dress was such a hit! The sparkle was incredible, but not overwhelming (in the way sequins can sometimes be). As many other reviewers have pointed out, it is INCREDIBLY low cut. I had to use lots of fashion tape to keep it in place. That being said, I got TONS of compliments, and really enjoyed wearing the dress!

A showstopping dress sure to get compliments!

I loved this dress, but ended up not being able to wear it because I didn't have the right bra. I rented the XS, it fit perfect everywhere except I needed a little lift but you can't wear a bra with it because of the deep front v. I was going to an association awards banquet so I felt I couldn't go without a bra. If the event were different, I probably would have fashioned taped it to me and gone with it. The fabric is metallic and fun and the skirt is big so it gives it flair. I was so sad to send it back without showing it off. I will definitely rent this dress again!

Pro's: More fun than an typical little black dress Con's: The dress is definitely BLUE with hints of black/grey. You need to have boobs, even for the XS size. I needed fashion tape and a pin to keep it together.

Elegant and Sparkly! Perfect for Formals and Holiday Events

Size worn: XS
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I adored this dress and had a wonderful time wearing it. The only problem that I had which was a similar issue others encountered was the top. I have a small chest and the v-neck of this dress requires ample fashion tape. If you have a larger chest, it will be much easier to wear. I never wear XS but with this dress I had to go smaller. It is was so much fun to wear though and the sparkles and color were even brighter in person!

The sparkle of the dress is amazing in person and its gorgeous on curvy girls!

Size worn: XS
Rented for: Party
For an XS, it ran quite large on top but the waist cinched in just right. I wore a backless, low cut sticky bra because it wasn't tight enough to go bra-less. I also used some strategic fashion tape to keep from showing too much on top. The length is flirty but not too short. Overall, it was a great dress for a holiday party that called for festive attire.

Just enough glitz

Size worn: S
Rented for: Party
This was the perfect holiday party dress! I loved the silver-blue shimmer in the fabric, the full skirt, the small bow detail and the open back. I received tons of compliments. I will strongly agree with other reviews that the neckline is much more plunging than it looks on the RTR model. Anyone wearing this dress will want to have a NuBra, fashion tape and safety pins on hand. I still loved wearing it, but had to be careful to keep pulling the dress up and standing up straight even with a safety pin and tape. The dress seems fairly true to size or slightly larger; however it has an odd slanted waistline with no stretch that went right over my larger than average rib cage, so I could not have gone any smaller than a Size S.

So many compliments on this dress!!

Size worn: XS
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
This dress was not my favorite on the model, but once I saw the way it looked on different women, I fell in love! All the reviews saying that it runs large are true. I'm usually a S/M or a 4 and I easily fit into the XS in this dress. Also, the photo of the model is deceiving, this dress is ALL cleavage and because it's backless, wearing a bra is out. I went with a adhesive bra, but still had to pin it a little to keep my bra from showing. It was short, but not inappropriately short as long as you're not bending over too wildly! Also, I got SO many compliments on this dress. It was extremely flattering! Awesome first RTR experience!!

Needed lots of safety pins and still boobs galore

Size worn: M
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Date
It didn't fit as loosely as some said - the waist wasnt that loose (i have a small enough waist and it was tough breathing at times in the medium), but the bust and shoulders were quite big. I had to safety pin this thing like no other just so that it wasnt open to my navel (pretty sure there would have been some falling out had i leaned over without the safety pins). even so the top back clasp kept coming undone all night. It wasn't short on me but I'm only 5'4 and wasnt tight anywhere but on my ribcage (at the top of the zipper) Its really a pretty color and all that but I wouldn't recommend it unless youve got a very particular body type (read: tiny waist, HUGE shoulders, small bust).

Wasn't able to wear the dress. :(

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I'm not tiny by any means, and the XS was still too big on me. The waist (and below) fit well, but the top was all loose and it made the dress look sloppy. I tried to pin it as much as I could, but it still didn't feel secure or comfortable despite pinning it in at least an inch on each side. I read all of the reviews before ordering this, so I expected this to some degree. I just thought I would be able to make it work, but I was unfortunately wrong. The dress itself is gorgeous--the fabric is beautiful and comfortable. I love the details, and the back is adorable. I'm sad I didn't get to wear this, but major kudos and thanks to RTR customer service for overnighting me another dress for my event! I don't think I would recommend this dress for anyone wearing a size 4-6 or below unless you have a good size bust.
