My favorite RTR dress EVER!
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
If I could have kept this dress forever I would have! This was the most magical RTR dress I've ever rented. Not only was the dress BEAUTIFUL with all the sparkle and the color but it fit me perfectly. I put it on and felt instantly beautiful and what girl doesn't want to have that feeling! The great thing about this dress is the fact it can accentuate your figure without making you feel your flaws are highlighted in any way. I have a little curve for my smallish frame and felt so comfortable in this dress. I also had concerns the sparkle fabric would rub wrong but it was fine. I wore this dress to a fall black-tie fundraiser was able to eat, drink and shimmy in this dress all night long. I would recommend this dress to anyone and emerald if the color of the year for 2013!

Bachelorette Party Dress PERFECT for Vegas
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Vacation
I luckily went to the RTR store in the Cosmo in Vegas and found this gem! Yes, the sequins were a little scratchy, but nothing unreasonable. The green was beautiful and the length was perfect! The top does dip a little low, but the length makes up for it. There's a little corset on the inside which is so nice! I'm usually a size 6/8 and they did not have a 6 in the store so the 8 had to do. Runs a little small and very close to a 6.

Loved this dress. I needed to fashion tape the top edge just to feel safe about keeping everything in, but I have a larger bust and it comes with the territory. Looked great and stayed perfect all night. So many compliments I loved it and would rent it again. :)!

GORGEOUS and was the perfect length, too: long enough to not look slutty at a work party :)
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Perfect dress for my work Christmas party. I looked amazing yet classy. The length was perfect on my 5'3" body. So it was a little above my knee, which made the strapless-ness of the dress not seem revealing at all. Yes the sequins were a bit scratchy, but that's what you sign up for when you get something with sequins. Pain is beauty people! Loved this dress, would recommend it!

Weird fit, scratchy sequins.
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I had to call my neighbor to zip me into this dress! It wasn't overly tight, but the zipper was VERY firm. Make sure you don't wear this to a place you're going to stag (like me). While the dress overall looks good, the bottom of the corset piece sticks out in the belly region, giving an unflattering roll effect. Combine that with the scratchy sequins under the arms, and I was kind of uncomfortable in this dress. That being said, I did wear it for 6 hours with no real agony. All in all, it was pretty but there are more flattering choices out there.

Holiday Party Dream!
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I wore this to a black tie holiday party & received SO many compliments! The color was absolutely beautiful & the corset boning held everything well & was of course very flattering to my midsection. The only negative, for me, was that they were out of the size 6, so I couldn't get a back up dress. The 4 worked well, but the sequins at the top of the dress chaffed the skin. However, I think this would have been less of an issue if I had sized up.

This dress glimmers beautifully in natural light. The green is so vivid.
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Overall the fit is very flattering,, however this dress can bunch up if you don't watch out, and because of the way the light reflects on it, you need to make sure to suck in for photographs. it has nice boning in the bodice to keep things all in place, and it's easy to move around in. If you have very sensitive skin, you might find that after a night's worth of dancing and moving, you have very irritated underarms. But, this is the price of beauty.

THE Vegas outfit
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
Cute dress for my Vegas bachelorette weekend. Yes, the sequins do scratch underneath your upper arms as well as underneath your thighs when you sit down. Watch out- the back of the dress tends to scrunch up due to the sequins catching on themselves so have your friends keep up on the "Back Watch."

The compliments were endless!
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The fit was perfect! I worry about dresses cutting off my arm pits and giving me those lumps next to my arm pit. This dress didn't do that. The built in corset style flattered my figure and gave me a lovely shape. The length was perfect, I'm a short 5'3" so I thought it might be long but it landed an inch above my knee. I did wear spanks just to feel better but you wouldn't need them if you are a little less lumpy than I. The color is beautiful and for those of you who have worn sequined dresses before this one in my opinion isn't nearly as scratchy as most. The sequins are teeny tiny and really less damaging to the skin than cheaper dresses I've worn with bigger sequins. Since I live in Idaho it's still cold in February so I wore a form fitting little black jacket with it as well, which cut down on the scratches. Really my arms had no marks and I wore it for hours. You just need to have good posture. It was such a beautiful dress that I can't afford to own so Thanks RTR for the opportunity to have it for the weekend! LOVE IT!!!!

It was love at first sight!
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size

This dress is gorgeous. The color is a gorgeous emerald that actually appears less glittery than I had imagined after seeing the photo online. I received a ton of compliments and was very happy with my choice,The only reason I didn't give the dress 5 stars was the scratchy-ness. I used a protective lotion that is usually for use in triathlons to protect my underarm area, but within an hour of wearing the dress I developed red marks from the scratches inside my arm.

Gorgeous dress, but INCREDIBLY uncomfortable!
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is stunning, even more so in person. Photos do not do it justice. But if I could do it all over I would not wear it again. The fit may be perfect, but the sequins are so abrasive that by the end of the event I had very painful scratches all over my chest, side, back, thighs and even forearms from wear the sequins had touched my skin! They were still there two days after the event, too. Most uncomfortable I have ever been in an outfit EVER, and that's saying something given my love of sky-high heels.

I'm usually and 6, sometimes an 8 and a 6 fit perfect. Um, LOVE. This dress was amazing. Not recommend for apples but I thought it was great! Though I'm a 'curvy' apple (read hips). I got a million compliments. Was so great I wore to two weddings back to back weekends (8day rental) See 'dove' review as well I agree with her on all points.

Dress was in perfect condition upon arrival and I was happy with my first RTR experience; will definitely rent again! I got so many compliments on the dress, from both men & women. I felt elegant, sexy, and sophisticated. :)

This dress looks great, exactly like the photos. The fit, however, was a little big (size 2, the smallest size RTR offers). When I first tried it on (without undergarments), it was too big up-top and when I raised my arms, the ladies would pop out. Luckily, I was able to solve the problem with a very padded strapless bra. The bra also added some sexy cleavage! The boning is great and I never felt like the dress was slipping down. The only two cons: it is definitely scratchy under the arms, but well worth it. Also, the zipper is white, which is a little strange, and there's no hook-and-eye closure at the top of the zipper. Otherwise, loved it!

This dress was so beautiful and comfortable, I refused to take it off when we went out after the party for a late night food run (my dress shoes didn't make it, hence the sneaks).

This is a wonderful dress! It fits very well and is super flattering (even if you have a little bit extra tummy). I had some under arm chaffing by the end of the evening, but that's how sequins dresses go.

Though the dress is a gorgeous color, and I know it's a risk with sequins -- I literally looked like I had a fight with 30 cats the night I wore this, it tore my arms to pieces.

I wore this to a casino night and was probably the most dressed up person there. However, I felt great and received compliments all night. The green is a true forest emerald green. My only complaint is that the sequins were very scratchy under my arms, after a while it did get irritated.

Great dress, bad fit.
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I was realy looking forward to wearing this dress to my friend's movie premiere, and was disappointed that it did not fit well and I couldn't wear it. I was able to get the 8 zippered up myself, but it was way too large in the chest area and required a bra--which made my boobs obnoxiously large. The boning in the stomach also stuck out a lot in three places and was not flattering. I couldn't get the zipper up myself on the 6, and when my sister zipped it up for me, though it did fit better, there was still a very large boob "issue" (maybe not for some, but I would not have been comofortable looking like a hooker) and the boning still stuck out. So, though it's a gorgeous dress, it was not right for my body.

Lovely and unique!
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wore this to a party on NYE. It was perfect. Very glamorous and fun. I would say it runs a bit small because I normally wear a 2 and the 4 was a bit snug. There is boning in the top which is a little uncomfortable, but it makes you stand up straight :) Also, you will definitely need a push up with this one if you are small busted. I would totally rent this again, though.

Perfect New Year's Eve dress!

Loved this dress and received many compliments. It's much more sparkly and radiant than in the pictures. I'd think twice about wearing it to a wedding because it's so attention-grabbing, but it was absolutely perfect for NYE. I wore with spanx, which really helped the fit. The only downside is that the sequins scratch your armpits (and your tights, if you're wearing them), but that would happen with any sequin dress.

Really pretty dress, I was so excited to get it but it was REALLY big on me, I had to put a bunch of fashion tape, VS bombshell bra, and a blazer over top of it. It definitly needs a tighter fit to work unfortunately. It was gorgeous though and the sequins are perfectly understated!

Overall fit: True to Size

I had a black-tie event, and I hardly ever get those types of opportunities, so I knew I had to get a show-stopper of a dress. I'm a redhead, so when I saw this dress I immediately knew I wanted it. I rented both the 6 and 8, and while I could fit into both, I chose the 8, because it was just easier to zip myself and allowed for a strapless bra underneath. I felt very pretty, and I wish I had a reason to rent this again! I'm curvy and I am always concerned about appearing lumpy, but this dress had some stretch and was very flattering.

Overall fit: True to Size

Pro: fun color, unique, felt sassy Con: rubbed horribly wherever it touched my skin (underarms, above breasts, etc.), the bustier creates a little protrusion where it falls on your lower abdomen (creating a bit of a belly that I'm sure was not very noticeable, but I thought about it)

This dress was my FIRST experience with RTR, and after listening to others reviews and sizing tips, went for my normal dress size. It was PERFECT! I wore it to the FX television premiere "Wilfred", which I was working as a production intern! Who says interns can't dress it up! This dress is so phenomenal and truly puts the spotlight on you. As a redhead I feel this dress POPS your best features (red hair of course!), and can be a hit on anyone! Get this dress!

This dress is phenomenal - wear it! My usual size fit properly on me, though I have a smaller chest. The corset is very flattering, and helps keep everything in place, there was minimal repositioning necessary during the night and I was never worried about the dress sliding down. The fabric has some "give" to it, which makes it quite comfortable even though the corset is doing its job. I'd note that the sequins can scrape a little bit under the arms, but it's a small price to pay for a dress this gorgeous. My waist looked absolutely *tiny* in this dress. The dress photographs very well, and doesn't look garish or gaudy - just a nice, glamorous sparkle. I'd note that it'd probably be easier to get into if you have a second person to zip you up -- the sequin fabric can make it tough to pull up the zipper on your own.
