Not a fan of this dress at all. Unless you have long, long legs...this dress is not for you. The material bunches horribly, almost as if it were sewn incorrectly, and the vertical pleats at the bottom were weirdly unflattering. If you do decide to rent, make sure you have a back up. Yikes!

This dress fit like a glove and highlights a small waist. The dress was not too short on me, even though I am 5'10". The light fabric is extremely feminine and gorgeous!

Beautiful, but large on top!

Size worn: 46
Overall fit: Large

I was unable to wear this dress and was totally sad :( The skirt is very flowy and forgiving! It hit my thighs maybe a few inches above the knee - perfect again. However, at a 34D I was unable to even come close to filling out the top. Tape couldn't even get me close. At least customer service overnighted me a different dress and it fits PERFECTLY! yay!

The dress is unique. My boyfriend complimented the neckline and was happy it wasn't too short.

The neckline is beautiful. I just wished the material in the waist area was a bit less layered.

An OK Dress

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I rented the 6 and 8, the 6 fit perfectly however, the stitching detail paired with the multiple layers of fabric led to weird bumps and bulges. The dress was very tight on my hips in both the 6 and 8. I didn't end up wearing this dress because of these issues. If you're thin and straight then it would probably look great on you. The detail at the bust is pretty, but not enough to overcome the weird bulges that can be unflattering.

Beautiful details

Size worn: 38
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress to a wedding and received many compliments. The detailing on the dress was very pretty and the fabric made it a great choice for the outdoor, evening wedding I attended. My only complaint on the dress was that the layers in the hip/back of dress area do tend to make it a touch unflattering. It sort of looks bumpy the way the material falls. But overall the dress looked good and was comfortable to wear and fit true-to-size.

Loved dress, bad design.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
This dress has fabulous design, but poor worksmanship. The dress creates illusion of a wider waist and some extra fabric on the lower back sticks out making one look flat. It would have been the perfect dress for an early afternoon wedding, but did not wear it since it was not flattering. The dress runs a little large on the top and small on the bottom portion.

i rented a different dress for date night to the symphony with my husband, but it didn't fit! RTR overnighted this to me and i LOVED it so much more than the original dress! It was a little loose in the waist, but fitted in the hips and chest.

not my cup of tea

Size worn: 40
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
This dress looks so beautiful in the photos. but I thought it looked a little cheap in real life. Also, it is extremely fitted in the hip area. Seriously, it is not meant for curvy women. The rest of it fit perfectly though.

It was a pretty great dress, but for one thing

Size worn: 38
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Now the big thing for me that was a bit weird about this dress was that right at the hip there was just this little puff of fabric because of the way it was structured and sewned. So I would keep running my hand there to smooth it out. And I have a pretty small chest so the dress fit everywhere pretty well but there...but that is my burden to bear ;) Overall it was a great take on the little black dress :)

One of my dresses was damaged, and the RTR stylist chose a new one for me that was spectacular.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This dress is really cute and unique, and it was very comfortable. The only problem is that there is a strange "pouf" in the back right above the waistline. I noticed this was mentioned in one other review. I loved the dress, but I decided to go with my backup style as the bubble in the back would have made me self conscious all night.

Beautiful dress fit for a formal occasion

Size worn: 40
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I'm wider in the hips with a smaller bust, so this dress fit perfectly on bottom but was a bit loose on top (I wore a strapless bra to fill in some space). I don't think you need a bra with this dress if you can fill it in, though. The ruching is a bit weird and it's not very slimming, but it's still a very pretty dress. I probably won't rent this one again, though.

Love RTR customer service!!!

Size worn: 40
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
This was my #1 pick but it didn't fit :( I'm quite busty although straight and narrow everywhere else. Couldn't zip it up that last little bit. Size up wasn't available but RTR customer service was fantastic in recommending and overnighting another option that worked perfectly! I will most certainly rent this again in a size up for my next event.

Cute and fun to wear, but imperfect

Size worn: 44
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
As other reviewers have mentioned, there is some weirdness going on at the waist of this dress, with bunched-up fabric. I loved the unique top part of the dress, although it didn't stand up exactly the way that I think it was intended to.

The dress was perfect for a trip to dinner, comedy club, bar.

Boning held the dress in place very well. I usually wear a 2/4 in dresses (from J. Crew, Ann Taylor) and this 42 had "US 6" on the tag. This dress was a big hit for my bachelorette.

danced the night away at my best friend's wedding

Size worn: 44
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
this dress was interesting. Runs big up top (and i wear a 34d+). I cant figure out if i liked the ruffle or not and i couldn't figure out if it was supposed to go in the middle or on the side. you could see my bra if you were taller than me and it scratched my armpit but it did look like an expensive dress...
