As I entered the room, I instantly received five compliments on this dress. I felt like I nailed the nautical theme!

Size worn: 38
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I rented this dress for an event called Seafare that raised money for local art programs. As soon as I walked in the door I received five compliments on the dress. It was definitely a great selection for the theme! I rented the 38 and 40 (a US 2 and 4 respectively) and ended up wearing the 38. The 38 was a bit snug in the boobs and hips, but the 40 looked like a shapeless sack. I did end up wearing a regular nude bra with it. I would recommend wearing this dress to an event with more standing as it gets wrinkled quick. It was definitely darling!

Rented this for the 4th parade and party - was great fit, felt a tad tight in the butt but it wore fine. Great beach summer dress! (PS My sis is wearing one of the Parker dresses)

The "bride in the front, bachelorette in the back" contrast!

Size worn: 44
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I rented this for my summer bachelorette party, and it had to go from day to evening as a result. With its fun, nautical front and its bright, low back, it did that with ease! Fellow pears, especially those between sizes, may wonder about how the open back will work for them: the material, of course, has no give, so size for your hips and, should the back have a bit too much material for you, it's easy to pin the back strap to your standard bra to prevent gaping. Another plus: despite the thinnish material, it didn't wrinkle at all during our long, leisurely dinner. Overall a totally comfortable and flirty choice!

It ran a bit small - but overall it fit perfectly because I got two sizes! Great shift dress for a formal party.

CUTE casual frock.

Size worn: 40
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I wore this dress to my nautical themed 30th birthday party. It was comfortable and on the more casual side, which was perfect for my low-key party. This dress would be perfect for any day or casual evening summer affair. For me, it was a little snug in the chest, but fit great everywhere else (I'm a 32F and often have this problem). The cutout in the back is adorable and just a bit sassy!

Great graduation dress!

Size worn: 42
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Other
I wore this dress for my college graduation and LOVED it. it was the perfect sun dress. I wish I had gotten the 40 because I had to pin the shoulder straps, they were too long. Once i had shortened the shoulder straps it looked great!

The customer service I got was fantastic! Plus this was shipped so quickly! Fantastic experience!!

Size worn: 38
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Fit great!! There was a tear on the inside by one of the arm holes but it had been sewn up before it was shipped to me and you couldn't even tell when I was wearing the dress! I got so many compliments on this dress :) I was worried about getting the size 40 since the size 38 wasn't offered anymore but it was the perfect fit!! This was my first rental from RTR and will be renting again in a couple weeks for my formal! Highly recommend this dress!
