RTR Team Review

One of my favorite rentals so far. Comfortable, chic, and easy. Running true to size with room in the bust, waist, and hips, I'd recommend sizing up for backup. No stretch to fabric, but great movement and silhouette. I wore a thicker bralette that almost resembled a cropped tank top to work to avoid the sides showing my skin. Great for work or everyday!

Unique stitching and very nice feel on the silk. It was baggy under the arms so I did not wear it, but would rent again in a smaller size.

I wore it to work

This is a rather loose fitting dress and the arm holes are very large, revealing the sides of a bra. I'd recommend closeting a smaller size to remedy the arm hole situation. The dress is loose fitting enough that I don't think it woudl impact other fit.

Favorite rental

This dress was perfect in every way! I wasn't anticipating on loving it, especially the pattern, but was surprised! If I could buy this, I would! Flowy, dark so any wrinkling is negligible, can go without a bra, cut under the arms and down the sides is unique and flattering!!!

Didn't want to send it back!

I thought the fit of this dress was perfect! I wore a racer back bra, cinched the ribbons on the back and had no trouble with the arm holes showing anything! This dress was so comfortable and easy to wear! Once it was on there was no adjusting or fussing with anything! Loved it!

An instant favorite!

This dress was a joy to wear. It is beautiful and I wished that I could keep it! The dress does run large, and I might have been able to take a size four (whoot). However this was my first time wearing this designer so I was conservative on the sizing. A normal bra is fines with this dress, and it is suitable for all body types.

Nice cut

Enjoyed wearing this dress. It is comfortable and uniquely designed. I am a size 12 and had more than enough room in the 10. At 5'5" the length was appropriate for the office.

Awesome silk summer dress! Instant outfit.

LOVED this dress. It's so easy to just throw on ... add minimal accessories and you have an instant outfit. I got a lot of use of out of this piece. I wore it during a weekend day in NYC, and also to work on a slightly more casual day in the office. I wanted to buy this one for keeps but it's $$$! Its not fitted at all, so I would recommend choosing the smaller size if between two sizes. I wear a 4/6 usually... I worked the 4 but I bet the 2 would've worked as well.

Unique cut and pattern make this dress interesting

This dress is really unique which is great. The material is nice, the pattern is cool, the cut in unique and flows well. Compliments from multiple sources (women). The dress is very voluminous and is supposed to flow that way - the arm holes are a little long. Great dress for hot weather, date night, cocktails etc. Didn't flatter my body style (wider shoulders, hips, butt) that well but worth stepping outside my comfort zone.

RTR Team Review

This is a fabulous casual summer dress, great for traveling. I wound up wearing this most days of my vacation. Its loose and swingy and lightweight, and doesn't wrinkle easily. It definitely runs large, so I would recommend renting a size down. At 5'3", it hit about at my knees. You can definitely wear a standard bra and undergarments in this dress. It's loose around the waist, so while it's not the most traditionally "flattering" dress, it gives off a cool effortless vibe that's great for summer.

Wore this to a show

I wore this dress to a breakfast and then to a matinee performance of a musical and received a lot of compliments on it. The dress is loose and kind of billowy so if you're at all conscious of your figure this dress should work well for you. There's a tie in the back that allows you to tighten the dress around the chest area a bit which is nice. It does have extra material on the sides that stick out a bit but not in an unflattering way. This is a dress I would rent again, for warm weather months.

This dress, over jeans, with platforms, two ponytails, and a bracelet from the twenties. Cool. Substantial. Pretty. Easy.

Potentially cute for an expecting Mom...

I rented this dress with work in mind. I am 9 months pregnant. While the dress had plenty of room for my baby bump and bigger chest, I just couldn't get it to look flattering. The dress had a lot of movent and was comfortable but I felt the cut and how it 'laid' added width around my hips. I returned without wearing it. Could possibly work for someone not as far along...

Great dress - runs big

I was worried the 8 would be too small (I'm a 38DD, with a 31 inch waist) but the 6 would have fit better. Bustier girls, don't be afraid to size down!

Nothing special

I really thought I would love this dress but it was just OK - the fit is very baggy but its also very short, so I feel like I couldn't have sized down much more without sacrificing length. The dress definitely looks better with a leather jacket over it for some structure. Otherwise it is pretty shapeless.

This dress is ridiculously flattering! It's so easy to wear. Dress it up or down. Love it.

One of the reasons this is so fabulous is that the cut flatters the bustline and legs, while allowing forgiveness for those of us with middles that are not teeny tiny. Love it. It's perfectly chic and effortless.

Feels comfortable but can’t say it photographs well.

Definitely too big!!! I should have gone down at least one more size. The white tie in the back does bring in the armpit area a bit but not enough for my liking. On the flip side - if the weather were sunny and I were outside, this is a great material, flowy, so comfortable and makes you want to dance in the sand. Probably pairing it up with black tights and a tight cardigan for work.

Work, casual, comfortable, and cute!

I loved this dress - wore it for work and casual events, with sandals and with higher heels. There are drawstring- like ties in the back that tighten at just the right part of the back to give definition and shape. Can't wait to rent again.

Cute but nothing special

I liked this dress more than I thought I would, but I had my doubts about it and I should have trusted my gut. Pros: the silhouette and cut is really sophisticated and easy. It’s very comfortable, and quite flattering due to the drape and seaming, although not at all fitted. It’s a medium-weight silk crepe, so it feels substantial but light and open for summer. Shorter in the front so it looks nice with flats/sandals or heels and shows a little leg while still feeling covered up enough for work. It’s a beautiful, high-end dress, but not really my favorite in the end – I wasn’t really wowed by the print, and the drawstring/ribbon on the back doesn’t seem to have much of a point to me. I’ll wear it another time before sending back but I probably won’t rent again.

Comfortable and unusual

Such an easy dress to wear but the fabric in person is very casual. I ended up wearing it touring around NYC on a hot day, and in Northern California with a fitted red tee under it for a cooler day. The dress appears somewhat worn, with the hemline no longer lying smoothly (as though it's been washed and shrunk). I was surprised at the lack of quality given the retail price.

I got this in a 6 but needed a 4. It was way too big but could still be worn big. I may rent again with a 4 because it's so cute and the proper fit will change the look.

This was cute and had room in the mid section.

This was comfortable and work appropriate with a blazer on top, although the chest area dipped a bit low if you weren't careful and pulling the dress up.

More like a maternity top than a dress

Because of the short, boxy shape, this "dress" felt more like a maternity top that you'd wear over leggings. This was heightened by the drawstring Empire waist at the back--it might be a nice rental either pre- or post-partum. Returned without wearing--unusual for me with this brand.
