Fabulous dress
Loved, loved this dress. It was about an inch too tight in the hips. I'm pear-shaped. But otherwise it was perfect. It was hard to let this dress go. The seams hit in the right places. The top fit perfeftly.

Too tight but great color
If you have supple boobs first off--Congrats!! Second off--go up one size in this dress! It flattened me out completely and it looked like a uniboob because the cut is so narrow up top. It was actually so small I couldn't snap it in so ladies go up a size if you have big girls!

Great color
The color of this dress is great but it had a seam that stuck out funny. The cut at the top of the dress was not flattering for me but with the little sweater it was cute.

Great color and dress... Runs Small
Loved the dress, but definitely size up if you're curvier in the hips. Good Length for my height. Normally wear a 10 or a 12 and the 12 fit great.

Red!
Who doesn't love a red dress to stand out before a sea of black at a black tie affair ? I'm between an 8-10 size wise. The 8 was a bit tight across my 36 D girls (I also have broad shoulders) and I thought the cut of the dress called for a loser fit so I wore the 10. Simple cut and style. Just a fun colorful dress!

Christmas Wedding
Although the dress came a day late, I was still able to wear it. I got the 8 and 10 as I am in between sizes post-baby. I wore the 10 just because of the weird side bunching at the zipper when I wore the 8. I wore a normal bra but crossed it in the front and secured with double stick tape.

Beautiful red dress, perfect for holiday party
Great color. I had to wear a strapless bra. I wore to a work party and the dress was conservative enough but also fun and festive.

I love the cut of this dress. It was very comfortable. Perfect for a late fall wedding. I was able to wear a strapless bra with it. I went for the RTR look and also wore the gold necklace featured on the model.

Rented this for a corporate cocktail party as a second option
This dress was so unique and lovely, unfortunately just not for my body type :( I would have loved to have worn this, however I just have a short torso and wider hips that did not work with this, has little stretch in the fabric, I'm 5'1", 140 lbs, hourglass... typically a 4-6 dress size. beautiful dress!

Comfortable and flattering
The dress fits true to size and is very comfortable. Easy on, and it even has those little snaps that hold your bra strap in place (I went strapless though just to make it easier). The color is beautiful, brighter than a true red, and the silhouette is very flattering. I got compliments all day. Highly recommend and would wear again!

Fun, Sassy Dress
This dress was really fun to wear to a wedding. The skirt was swingy and great for dancing. The fit was true to size. Loved the color! I also rented the necklace that the model is wearing and would recommend that as well.

A classy dress with a pop of color
I loved the bright color of this dress! I stood out in the sea of black at a benefit. It ran true to size and paired nicely with a black blazer and black fleece tights (it was only 5 degrees out) but would also look nice on its own.

Great dress
This dress was perfect for a spring wedding. The only thing I was dissipated about was how the clip on the shoulder had been repaired prior to my rental. It was not done well and didn't hold up on the dance floor. Luckily I was able to fix it with some help. As far as the fit this dress is great. The dress shows your shape without showing too much. I would absolutely recommend this dress.

I loved this dress with a chunky necklace. I wore a leather jacket and booties because it was December and chilly, but the fit and style made it easy to style.

This dress was absolutely amazing! I would buy it if I could. It's a great standout color.
Fit was great-- not too tight, plenty of room for the bust, which I always worry about. Length was very appropriate, not too short or too long.

Cute valentines day dress
Runs a little smaller than expected... did not hang loosely at the hips as it is intended, even though I usually always fit a size 12 these days. Nevertheless, I put on 2 pairs of spanx and tried to work it the best I could. Still an enjoyable dress. Simple and classy.

The dress was a beautiful shade and a great match for some super fun pattern pumps that I had!
It fit a little small for the 4 which is my size but the 6 felt perfectly! I just loved it =)

Runs Large
I wish I could have worn this dress since the color was great and perfect for a Valentine's date. I am usually a size 6, but the size 6 was way too big all over - armholes, bust, and waist - that I didn't end up wearing this dress. I would like to try this dress again, but will definitely be going down one (or two) sizes.

Simple but stunning! All the compliments!
I normally wear a 10 in all my RTR orders but this time the 8 did the trick. I rented this for a formal work affair and paired it with nude strappy open toes heels. I am 5'9" so the length was just a few inches above my knee. I loved the cut of the top of the dress; it added something a little sexy to what would ordinarily be a basic dress. Pair with some kind of necklace for sure. Color is awesome. Would rent again...I felt like a million bucks!

Holiday party dress
I wore this for my holiday office party. It's a flattering cut, and appropriate for a work event. I was able to wear a normal bra with racerback straps.

The cut of this dress was very weird to me. It closed over itself in the front and made a weird bulge at my left side.

I loved the mix of conservative cover with an edgy flair
The dress was knee length, the color was vibrant and the fabric was think enough that it doesn't show imperfection but still allows for the dress to flow when you move.

Super cute but runs small--great to show off shoulders
I got this as my backup because the 2 wasn't available so I could only get the zero and based on reviews I thought it might be small--and it was. That said I could tell it would be a really great dress if I didn't have to not breath to zip it up. Color was great, hem detail was interesting and I really loved the top/arm shape--really great if you typically like halters or other cuts that show off your shoulders.

Bold color!
I loved wearing this red dress! The color is amazing and the cut is really flattering. The dress is a bit form fitting through the hips - but in a really forgiving way. Comfortable to wear, easy to dance in- I got compliments all night.

I ordered a 10 (my usual size) and a 12 just to be safe and neither fit. Too snug/not flattering.
Too snug in the hips and stomach The extra fabric in the front did not cover stomach as shown in pictures Dress was much longer than shown in pictures

Great dress and perfect for my event!
The top fit great but it fit awkwardly from the waist down. The waist had quite a bit of extra room and it was tight on my hips so it would tend to bunch up at my waist. This is probably just because I have a thin waist and wider hips. Other then that it was a great dress and perfect for one of my sorority's recruitment events!

Incredibly light, flirty and comfortable!
I LOVED this dress. First of all, you can wear it with a racerback sports bra! I'm a wedding photographer and it was great to work in - long enough that it didn't rise up when I lifted my arms, light enough that it had great swing and comfort, but not so light that it didn't stay down. It was extremely flattering the back hangs a lot lower than the model's photo shows. Great for girls with an athletic build/broad shoulders!

Comfortable and flattering!
Everyone loved this dress! Might have been able to wear a 4, but the 6 was comfortable, maybe a little roomy in the bust. This dress could go formal or casual and is super comfortable as the fabric has stretch . A nice length for those of us not interested in thigh views.
