Love the sleeveless cut, it looked quite flattering. Fit pretty true to size, but if need, would size down for a more snug fit!

Standout dress - hope to rent again!

Size worn: 14
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Date
Bright colors and nice fit. I got lots of compliments about the fit and spring colors, especially with a predicted spring snowfall on the way. The dress went easily from an afternoon charity event to a live music club later at night. The sleeves are cut in and a conventional bra is not an option. I did not experience any "stretch" described in the product details. However, after getting way too may larger size dresses that obviously had been in high demand and heavy rotation, it was great to get one with the tags still on and this lovely drape.

Very Cute!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small

This dress is very well made and constructed! However, it would not zip past my rib cage (which tends to be my problem area with dresses). Nonetheless, this is adorable, and I would order a larger size next time!

Perfect for date or small gathering

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
It was a little tight - fabric has some give, but a little smaller than other sz 6's I've worn in RR. Beautiful colors! The shoulder hooks on one of the strap are hidden and a little tricky to get done, but doable.

Bold and fun dress and super comfortable!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I picked this dress up at the RTR showroom the day of my brother's rehearsal dinner -- they only had a size 10, and I am usually a 6, so I guess they run small. It can probably be dressed up, but was perfect for a rehearsal dinner - fun and smart casual. Wore black patent leather peep toe heels. Would equally love to have this dress for a night out on the town!

Stand out without wearing too short of a dress

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Rented it for a formal spring event, and it was perfect! Long enough to be appropriate while sitting on stage, and bright enough to stand out and fit for an outdoor serenade. Hugs curves nicely, looks good with a statement necklace, wore it with sandal heels.

Classy and complimentary

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
Was incredibly comfortable! I usually wear a 6 and would've worn that one if it was evening time because it was little shorter and tighter, but the 8 was perfect for a work day. Definitely a strapless bra. The racerback adds a unique touch and the design is very complimentary.

Wear this dress if you like showing off your arms. It's flattering on a petite frame. I'm 5'1 and dress hit above the knee. I paired it with a sparkly necklace but you could also wear a fun bracelet and earrings instead. Nude shoes looked great with this but blue pumps could also work!

Tight in hips

I couldn't get this dress of me fast enough. Did not like it. Cut in the top is very shoulder-y, hips run tight. It was my backup dress and I did not wear it.

Amazing color!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This dress was perfect for a day to night transition. I wore it to work (would be cute with a blazer in a more conservative industry) and then to a huge cocktail event that evening. I got a ton of compliments and the color really made my tan stand out, so it's a great summer dress! I ordered the 2 and the 4 based off of other people's reviews and my incredibly helpful RTR consultant's opinion. The 2 fit perfectly. I could have worn the 4 but it was more of a "shift" then as it was looser around my middle. I would recommend this if you need something that makes you feel hot, but not flashy.

I typically where a 0-2 and the 0 was way too big on me. It s a great fabric and color though. Had this dress fit me, I would have loved it.

Beautiful blue dress makes waves!

Size worn: 14

This was a great dress for a political fund raiser I attended that called for cocktail attire. It does run a bit small. I typically wear a 12 but wore the 14. The dress is well cut and very flattering.

Small in the legs/hips

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I got this as my "extra" dress (in addition to the "standard plus backup") in place of the "Wave Him Down" due to damage to WHD - It might have fit if I'd gotten the 6 instead (I ordered the 4). The shape looked good but the hips/bum/thigh area was very snug. I couldn't quite walk or sit freely, but I think I would have been much more comfortable in the 6.

Pattern is flattering and received many complements!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
The dress is very tight around the hips. The fabric pulls if you have wider hips (like me) so take that into mind. I would recommend getting your typical size, then going a size up. Luckily they had the next size up for me and was able to overnight it on the day of the wedding! I received lots of complements and it is a great alternative to wear to a wedding instead of the stand by LBD! The back of the dress is flattering too! Pair it with a statement necklace and pair of pumps and you'll look fabulous!

I love this dress!!! I got it at the RTR store in Vegas. I normally wear an 8, but all the store had was a 6. It was a little snug, but it fit ok, so I decided to rent it anyway. I'm glad I did! It was perfect for dinner and a show in Las Vegas. I might rent again, and if I do, I'll definitely get the 8.

Super-sexy fit, hugs your curves and is appropriate enough for a work cocktail party/event

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Wore this to the iHeartRadio Music Festival and felt super comfortable and sexy all night. The material pulls you in at the right spots and highlights your curves. It's tight, but also not too revealing, so appropriate to wear around colleagues/clients. Wore with strapless bar and turquoise earrings and black heels. Definitely recommend this dress!

Overall fit: True to Size

Fine dress, but just not that great. I wore for a photo shoot that wanted me to show my arms and be in a blue dress. But it's kinda like a church/work dress if you throw a jacket on it. There are better choices if you want a fun dress--nice dress if you need simple classic work dress.

Perfection

A very slimming dress, even though I had to go up a size. Worn with silver pointy toe heels, and paired with Slate & Willow - "In The Spotlight" Earrings, and words like "perfection", "amazing" were thrown around. Prettier on than appears on the hanger.

I was running around a lot during my fashion show but the dress did not budge. It fit like a glove and hugged my curves in the right places. It was not too short which was also a plus

Fantastic Dress for a Formal Event!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I read the reviews and sized up for this dress - I usually wear a 2/4, but the 6 was perfect. The colors were gorgeous in person, and I loved the way this dress felt. It was flattering yet conservative. I felt like I could breathe (and eat). I loved the fit at the shoulders, and the length was perfect for my event. Highly recommend!

Very Pretty Colors and Lines - Fit Different than expected

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Pros: Vibrant colors, great fit. I am an extremely petite girl XXSP, 00P, 5'4", 110 lbs with a tiny rib cage. The dress fit very well it wasn't snug but it wasn't loose except around the stomach part. Cons: I bought a dark blue/navy purse to match this dress and the darker shade of blue is definitely more like a lighter shade of royal blue so a considerable amount of purple tone. There really is NO stretch at all in this dress. It was a bit annoying for dancing as I couldn't really bend my knees without it riding up. I've rented a few dresses from RTR and I probably wouldn't rent this one again for anything, nice to wear but wouldn't repeat.

Great fit, gorgeous colors and design!

Size worn: 10
Rented for: Party
I got a ton of compliments on this dress. I suggest going one size up (I'm normally an 8 but wore the 10) - I absolutely love this dress and may rent again. The fit flatters an hourglass shape and was form-fitting without being too tight. The length was just a few inches above my knee and it could've been a little shorter for my occasion (NYE cocktail party) but I think the length makes it quite versatile. Thanks RTR!
