Really pretty dress that didn't fit unfortunately!

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large

Runs really large. I was so sad I didn't get to wear this dress. Also is very sheer and does not come with a slip layer! Beautiful print and great movement, just size down about 2 sizes.

Under slip runs small, outer sheer part is big.

Size worn: 44
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
The dress itself is unbelievably see-through. It is supposed to come with a white under-slip, that fits true-to size, if not a bit snug. I ordered the 44 & 46. The 46 did NOT arrive with the slip, rendering it unwearable. The 44 fit fine, wasn't too snug in the arms. It is very flowy over all. The underslip was short, tight in the hip area, and a bit small for how big the sheer outer part is. The belt was very tight. I could barely get it on the last loop, and felt squished. I wore the 46 belt with the 44, and had it on the 2nd or 3rd hole, and was much more comfortable. I'm not sure if the 44 even had the correct belt on it. The top was super big, and hung over the orange belt, nearly concealing it. Not fitted at all like on the model. In general, I'd order the size you normally wear, but each piece of the dress runs so differently from the next. Super small belt. Super big outer layer. Smaller underslip.

Beautiful, flowy dress for cocktail party/rehearsal dinner.

Size worn: 40
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
It was a little loose, but the belt held everything together. I loved how flowy it was, and how light the fabric was. The length is a little long, but with heals, it's actually a fun & different length!

Nice enough dress

Size worn: 40
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Other
I would rate this dress 3.5 stars if I could. The print is pretty, but the dress itself runs REALLY large. I usually wear a 4/6 and the 40 was still a bit baggy on me (though the underslip was not baggy at all).

The dress was so beautiful I felt like I was wearing a piece of art--I didn't want to send it back!

Size worn: 42
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I tried the dress on at the showroom ahead of time and knew that a 44 would be too big, so I ordered a size down. The waist is a little tight and is not elastic, but it still fit fine. The dress itself is quite sheer and does not come with a slip so I bought a nude dress slip to wear underneath. Despite the necessary adjustments of ordering a size down and buying a slip, the dress is so cute and I received many compliments on it! There's a good chance that I will rent this again in the future!

Huge and see through

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large

This dress is beautiful on the hanger... Goes down hill after that. It is completely sheer and he sizing is totally off.. I am typically a 6-8 and the 6 was soo loose and very unflattering... The belt is actually true to size . Just had such a strange fit, ashame because the colors and patterns are beautiful. this dress was my first total miss with RTR, and I have been renting for years. Love RTR service!

Long, lots of material, unflattering

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress did not work for me at all. It was very long (almost to my ankles) and unflattering for my 5' 4'' frame. There is a ton of material that is meant to be flowy, but it ended up feeling and looking like I was wearing a trash bag. One of the best things about RTR is reading other people's reviews and seeing what it really looks like on, and I rented this without seeing others review (it was new), won't do that again.

Great dress, belt slides around annoyingly

Size worn: 38
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Dress looked wonderful and I received many compliments. Fits true to size. Only problem was that there were only two flimsy belt loops and the belt is quite stiff, so it never sat properly on the dress and you had to fidget with it quite a bit.

Great dress! Pop of color

Size worn: 40
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
The dress is wonderful! Top layer is a little sheer, but over a white slip (included), it looks great. The bright orange belt is an amazing pop of color. Comfortable, stylish, would love to wear it again.

This was the first RTR fail for me. :(

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
I am usually a size 6 or 8, so I ordered a 44 and 46 as my backup. I tried on the 44 and there was no slip with it, and the thing is completely transparent! Luckily the 46 had a slip. However, the slip and dress had so much static that it was unwearable, despite the fact that I used dryer sheets and anti-static spray to try to help. Nothing would get rid of the tons of static! Also, even the size 44 was at least 2 sizes too big. To make matters worse, neither dress had the belt with it.

Beautiful Spring/Summer Dress

Size worn: 42
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Vacation
I wore the dress to go shopping during a bridal party event. The dress was cute and perfect for a brunch or tea. The dress itself ran a little large and was incredibly sheer. There was no slip, so I would recommend having a slip on hand, unless you are planning on wearing the dress as a coverup.

Pretty dress with pockets but run large.

Didn't get to wear this since it was overly large. You'll definitely need a belt and a slip since the dress is sheer. Having pockets was a great aspect. Might rent it again in a smaller size.

Gorgeous dress- so simple but so many compliments. The orange belt adds a wonderful pop of color

There are two pieces with the slip and dress so the only downside was the slip strap falling occasionally but otherwise great

Fun colors and love the belt accent.

Size worn: 44
Rented for: Vacation
The colors of this dress are super fun! This is a great casual dress to wear in warm weather. The loose fit was definitely what put this into a casual category. I wore it to a family dinner on vacation in FL, but I wouldn't wear this to a wedding or more formal event. Definitely just a fun, casual summer or late spring dress. One thing to note is that you'll need a slip to wear under it (at least I felt like I did), as the fabric is pretty see-through. Luckily I had a slip in hand that worked perfectly, but it would have been a pain if I didn't.

I hate leaving a negative review....but do not rent this dress. And if you must, size down.

Too baggy in the top. Belt does not sit right. Slip was not included in the shipment. I love RTR but this is a dress to skip.

I ran to CVS at one point during the day and the lady behind the counter said "you know your dress is completely see through" - i had asked my boyfriend in the morning if he thought it was see through and he said no (i kind of thought it was). other than that, the dress was really cute and very comfortable and the belt really brightened the look up! i would wear it on a beach vacation, but not in the office/professional setting

Loved the colors and flowy look

Size worn: 44
Rented for: Other
I rented this in the size 6 when I usually wear a 4. It was big, but since it's so flowy and belted it wasn't too obvious. Beautiful colors and material. As others have said, there's no slip so you have to BYOS :) the length feels a little matronly but that's mostly because I'm used to wearing either maxi dresses or short dresses. I rented this as part of unlimited - not sure id pay the full amount to rent it!

The dress runs large as reviewed by others but the belt runs slightly smaller. Also the inner slip may fit shorter if you are bottom heavy like me. Still, beautiful flattering dress and versatile!

Ethereal and feminine, beware the see-through!

Size worn: 46
Rented for: Work
Loved the look and colors of the dress. Got so many compliments, however, make sure you're wearing your own slip as you can see right through the material. Not a fun way to go into a meeting, feeling like you're over sharing when you walk in the door.

Transparent, yet elegant

Size worn: 40
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Work
Important reviewer tip: **This dress is almost completely see-thru. You WILL need a slip of some sort.** Other than that, gorgeous pattern, silky fabric, and the elegant, billowy fit made this a beautiful dress. Also, mine did not arrive with a belt, so be aware that the dashing red belt shown on the model is not included.
