Fantastically structured and flattering.

The fabric on this dress is amazing and its made so that its body-con without being uncomfortable. I wore it with black tights and booties in NYC visiting a friend and I felt FABULOUS. No other accessories even necessary. Ideally I wear a 4 and if it had been available, would have probably worn the 4 again however the 2 was suited just fine for a night out.

I just didn't like it. The fit was bulky and made me look boxy.

Although I was really impressed with the customer service experience on RTR, I think this service probably works best when renting more expensive dresses. In this case, I got less than what I paid for, and next time I'll put the cash behind a better fitting dress. I am athletic and pear-shaped, and this dress managed to make me look like a box. Very disappointed.

I wore this dress for my bachelorette dinner at a fancy restaurant near South Beach and party afterwards! It was very sexy yet still classy. It fit true to size.

Rented to wear to performance of Nutcracker. The back is cut quite low. I didn't pack the right undergarments so I was constantly having to adjust the dress to ensure my bra band wasn't showing. The dress looks like a salmon color in the picture on the model but is more reddish-orange in person.

I rented this dress for a cocktail party. I tried it on, but the fit was too loose. I ended up not wearing this dress and wore another dress of mine instead.

- it was waay too short for a 5'11 girl. It was cute tho. But it's really green and orangish...not red and black as it appears on the photo.

Arrived on time, easy to ship back - perfect color - ideal for our Christmas party!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large

The dress was perfect for our annual (informal) Christmas party. Fit well, maybe a little large. The material makes it less formal than it may come across in the picture. All in all, perfect for our annual Christmas bash!

Perfect for a casual look with the family

I wore this to Beach Blanket Babylon, which is a musical revue. Its a performance that people typically dress up for. The dress was wonderful for the event - perfect amount of color and able to be worn with tights for the San Francisco chill. Loved the cut and idea of the dress. My issues with it came in the fit - it made me feel good but not great. - The dress looks like it should be a bodycon style dress that just holds everything in and tight. It isnt. There's lots of breathing room around the waist. - The length is REALLY short. I had to go with the looser one to cover my toosh and Im a very short person! - The waist/hip room was excessive, instead of being beneficial, the fabric bunched and billowed around the waist. My mini-gut was not flattered by the extra fabric and my hips couldn't fill out the sides. If I were to rent it again, I would get it for an event that I wanted to dress up and not draw lots of attention. It was perfect for a family outing.
