Unforgettable wedding with an unforgettable dress!
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was perfect for a late fall wedding! The back is open, but the waist is high enough on your back so that you can wear tights. There is a lot of room in the front for a bigger chest. Just make sure you wear a sticky bra! I received so many compliments on this dress. I'm hoping I have something to attend this year just so I can order it again!

Such a fun, yet classic party dress!
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
Ran large, but also a little short so I had to wear tights as shown in the picture. Very revealing and sexy back but still conservative enough for a wedding. Business in the front party in the back!

Size worn: 2

What a pretty dress! It ran a little big on me... but I have a very tiny waist. I wore the 2 but could have easily worn a 0. There is stretch to the dress. It was warm and cozy. I paired it up with black tights and black shoes like the model. Would love to own!

I tried this dress on a whim, and because of the elastic back, it fit! The dress was very short, but wearing tights or leggings can easily fix that. The backless fit was so much fun, I hated to take it off.

It was a great dress, I received compliments all night.
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
It fit very well, but my top half is smaller proportionally for me, so it ran just a slight bit too big under my arms, but it stayed in place all night with the fashion tape RTR provided! It did look more black to me, instead of the navy the picture portrays.

I absolutely loved this dress! I wore it for my bachelorette party the Thursday before my wedding and got tons of compliments. I'm a bit tall, so the dress was the perfect length for a party. The material was also high quality and perfect for a chilly day.

Unique dress, with nice winter fabric & classy details. Turned out, it didn't WOW like I had hoped!
Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
Other reviewers mentioned that the sides of this dress buckle a bit. I suppose this is a body shape issue. I have sort of a wide back and a narrow waist so I had to use the fabric tape to prevent the major buckling happening on the sides. Other than that, it looked great. Unfortunately, we had over a 2 hour car drive to the wedding because of a winter storm and the hooks at the low back dug into me the whole ride. So, a tad uncomfortable there. But they did stay hooked through the night. I danced a bit, and just be careful with twirling! I may have given the onlookers more of a performance than I intended! I wouldn't rent this dress again simply because it was a second choice to begin with and I aside from the back design, wanted a little more pizzazz.

Adorable dress - I felt comfortable and got tons of compliments!
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I loved this dress! I wore it for New Year's Eve and it was a huge hit. It's wool material so it's smooth and warm, and not scratchy or anything. It is a bit short, so I'm glad I was wearing tights. And the back adds just the right amount of flare and fun. I paired it with navy blue tights, gold heels, gold earrings and a set of gold bangle bracelets.

It was a beautiful dress but it was not the right size for me. I wore a size 4 but could have done a 2. Unfortunately, the size 2 wasn't available for my birthday. I received so many compliments on this dress throughout the night! I will definitely be renting another dress very soon.

I wore this dress to dinner and dancing with some friends and it was the perfect amount of cutesy fit-n-flare, but the cut out back made it sexy at the same time! I got a ton of compliments all night on the style. The material is quite thick, so I would not recommend for a hot summer night!

Absolutely perfect dress.
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I LOVED this dress. I thought it was going to be way too short for me, but it ended up being perfect. It definitely runs large, so I suggest sizing down. The back of the dress is amazing. I got so many compliments! The one negative comment I have about the dress is that the back gaped a little bit, but it didn't affect the fit of the dress enough to not wear it.

Feeling beautiful on my birthday without spending a fortune!
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
Loved wearing this on my birthday! Such a fun dress. It definitely runs a bit big up top. I would normally wear a 6, but wore the 4 in this. For girls with hips and a butt (like me) it is definitely short, but it worked really well with black tights and booties. So perfect and such a great experience, I will definitely be renting again VERY soon!

unfortunately i wasn't able to wear this dress as it didn't quite fit right. perhaps if my chest was bigger or my torso was longer the sides (due to the open back) of the dress wouldn't poke out so much.

I was hoping this would be a sexier option of a semi formal wedding guest dress, but the fabric made it come across a bit cheap. It also ran small. Did not end up wearing.

This dress was awesome. Ladies- if your looking for a dress to wow the male population this one does the trick. It was super comfortable. I'm 5'8, it was short but acceptable short- especially since the front is so covered. I ordered the 4, but a 2 would have fit better. It was a little bit up top so I had to safety pin it.

Cute dress but awkward fit!
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I am a 34C and usually wear a size 4-6, when I put on the size 6 there was a lot of extra fabric on the sides, and even when I sized down to a 4, the fit was still awkward. The fabric is a great material, very soft and perfect for winter and the dress overall is very cute!

I loved the dress, the color, the style and subtle sexiness, it was perfect for the Christmas wedding I attended! My only disappointment were the hooks in the back at the neck, they kept coming undone (they may need to be replaced) so my husband had to run out any buy some safety pins. After i was pinned up I was free to dance the night away! Thanks RTR!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large

The greatest thing about this dress is the fabric. It's WOOL. How cool is that? I'm generally a 4 but the 2 fit me perfectly. I think this dress would be perfect for an office holiday party or a winter wedding. I loved it.

Made my waist look tiny but definitely gapped in the back. Best suggestion is to make sure the eye-hook in the back is secured - nearly had a wardrobe malfunction when taking off my coat. This was my first rental with RTR, I'll be using this service again and have the whole office excited to try!

Really cute and perfect for my late fall event.
Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
Usually wear a size 2 in dresses. Decided to go with the 0 because the dress runs big in the arms. Even with a 0 the sides still flapped out a little but I think I was the only one who noticed. Wore the dress with opaque tights...length of the 0 is a little too short to go bare legs or with sheer tights ( I am 5'5-5'6). Material is a bit worn but only if you look up close and the sequins is a bit loose. Overall, I was happy with this dress, I felt comfortable and perfectly dressed. I would order this dress again.

Showstopper.
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
Everyone absolutely loved my dress. The back is super sexy. Its the perfect day to night look as well. I had a formal brunch to go to where I dressed it up with heels and a clutch & then a more casual dinner where I dressed it down with a jean jacket & flats. Definitely recommend. Get your normal size and then a size smaller since it does tend to run a little big just because of the back.

Worked out perfectly! My only issue was that the event involved lots of swing dancing, and I definitely flashed a few people because that skirt is pretty short! So I suggest maybe some slider shorts beneath it...

I ordered this dress in a 2 and 4. The 2 fit, however, it was very short on me so I tried the 4 which fit as well and added a little more length but would defenitly wear tights with it. I did not end up wearing the dress because I felt it was better suited for a fall/winter event due to the material. Also, both sizes, the material and beading was very worn looking.

Birthday Dress
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
Been eyeing this dress forever, and finally decided to rent it for my birthday. I ordered the 2 and 4, I usually wear a 4. The 2 fit better on top, but was too short, so I wore the 4. I have a bigger chest and it flared a bit at the sides, so I safety pinned it at the neck and it was perfect. Got so many compliments- it was a big hit! Wool fabric is very heavy- would definitely not wear during the spring or summer!

Dress runs large so I rounded a size down. Everything was great except I would not recommend it if you have a larger bust because the fabric flares out on the hips to compensate. An adorable dress though

Rent a size down as the open back runs a little big. I had extra material on the side and in back. Otherwise, great dress!
