Felt like a million bucks!

The quality and color of the dress was amazing! The only thing was that the bust was a little too tight, and the bands that lay on the outer part of the arm hit a weird spot. The length was perfect for me, and I could wear my Spanx comfortably...hit right at the middle of the knee.

Never felt so thin in my life and I'm Preggo!

I have to admit, this dress was not my style, but since I waited until the last minute to find a dress, it was the best one available. I am SO glad I got it. The material of the dress is a little bit thicker, so it covers every lump and bump you could have. I'm 3 months pregnant right now and every dress i tried on made my stomach look huge. However, in this dress, my stomach looked smooth and you couldn't even tell I was pregnant! I do recommend getting a size smaller than you normally wear. I'm usually a 12, but wore the 10. I have no chest, so I'm sure I could have even worn the 8. The dress hugged my curves, and showed off my backside like I was Kim K herself! The vibrant blue color really stood out, and the unique sleeve design made it a little more fun.

Fabulous cut, color, and subtle flare! I love this dress it's super comfortable and softly sexy!

Fit was a bit generous in the mid section but it still looked so good I didn't care. Lovely shade of blue with just the right amount of sex appeal for date night and conservative enough for a work event or outing. Love the detail in the skirt and the fabric is super wearable.

Customer service was excellent!

This was just a tad snug in the waist for me, granted I had just come out of an emergency appendectomy a week earlier! Sadly I couldn't wear it. Customer service was amazing. When we couldn't find something to replace it, they gave me an RTR credit, which I will definitely use!

It was ok

The 10 fit fine. There is stretch to the fabric. The hen line is unique and cute but I did not like the detail on the sleeves with the extra fabric over the arms. Fit awkward on me.

Runs large

A stylist sent this to me when the second size dress of my original order was not able to be sent. I thought the customer service was great, but unfortunately this dress was just not my style. I tried it on just to see how it fit so I could write a review, and although she sent the same size of the dress I had originally ordered it was falling off my body. Definitely runs large! Great quality fabric though and beautiful color.

Very comfortable for sitting in dancing.

The fit was true to size. Great fabric and color. The only reason I gave 4 stars was because the front neckline on dress was pulling down and the inner black liner was showing with some fringing prob from over usage.

Comfortable!

Comfortable and flattering, with great color- rich but not too bright. The fabric is thick enough enough to cover imperfections but not restrictive. I am 5'4 and it hit just above the knee.

Cute dress, some odd fit issues

I loved the color and material of this dress... thick and stretchy made it very forgiving. I had a few odd fit issues though... it does run 1-2 sizes big. But even sized down. It was large in the waist for me. But then it was tight in the chest. Also, the off shoulder straps kept riding up on me. On the plus side, I was able to wear a normal bra with no issues. But overall, I felt good in this dress.

The dress was pretty big on my hips, but overall it was stylish and sexy, but still offered enough coverage to be work-friends appropriate.

Love the color

Dress runs big so I rented the size 4 instead of size 6. It fit great. I rented 3 choices so I did not ultimately wear this dress but it definitely was a contender for the party I went to. I love the shoulder straps. Dress is fitted but comfortable.

Great dress! I rented for an award banquet and after party. It was super cute and comfortable.

Fit was a bit tight in the chest, so larger chested women may want to go up a size

Stunning color!

The color was really beautiful and it is curve hugging, which is ultimately why I chose to return it. It was a great fit but my postpartum body was a little squishy for it :) I would definitely recommend spanx if you have any imperfections you want to hide!

Flirty and Fun

This was a pretty true fit at first my top selection was not available at last minute and this was the backup but glad I went with it. Form fitting but the flare at the bottom made it overall fun to dance in. Compliments all night bonus is you could get away with wearing a regular bra.

Great wedding guest dress

Beautiful dress. I received many compliments; however, the fabric is not quite as bright blue as I anticipated. I was expecting more of a cobalt blue and this seemed closer to navy.

Fun details, great fit!

The size 12 was very accommodating for a larger chest, while still being fitted through the rest of the body. The sleeve details were fun. The strap on the arm did ride up a bit, but not too bothersome. A slight gap in the armpit area, as visible in the picture. Strapless bra was necessary.

I was recently interviewed on the news with my fiance and needed something modest but cool.

This fit like a glove. I am typically a size 4/6 but got this dress in a size 0. I wanted more of a fitted silhouette but didn't want it to be too sexy. This was the perfect balance. I also knew I would be sitting so I needed a longer length and this dress hit at just the right spot! The color was so beautiful and popped on TV! I highly recommend this!

Great color! Runs large.

This dress was a thicker material but ran large. I wore the 8. If you are getting a backcup size, I would size down. Received a lot of compliments, especially on the color. Was a bit long as well for me (5'2").

Stylist Review!

I really liked this dress, however, I think I could definitely have gone down a size since it runs a bit large. The material is extremely comfortable and stretchy, and if the right size is worn, it will be nicely fitted through your midsection with comfortable room for hips! If you prefer to not have this fit too snug, I would recommend ordering your normal size and a size up, but if you want it to be tight, I recommend your normal size and one size down (possible even two!), and you can even wear spanx with this dress if you are self conscious about your midsection. A standard bra and a strapless bra would both be suitable for this dress. I really like the unique off the shoulder design, because it's very different than a typical cold shoulder style. I do not recommend this style for petite frames, since I am tall and it still fell below my knee- petites would be swimming in this! Definitely a very sophisticated , work-appropriate dress if you wanted to try something different!

Lovely style of dress

This was my backup dress and I ended up not wearing it. I wanted to give a review anyway because it was a really cute dress and I think it's one I would rent in the future. The color is very vivid and a beautiful blue but it run extremely large. I am usually a 2 or 4 and I think a size 0 would fit me.

Nothing like watching two of your close friends tie the knot!

I wore this dress as a bridesmaid. The bride had told us blue, short, and not sleeveless. This dress was perfect and fit beautifully. I am usually about a size 6 and wore a size 4. I ordered a size 4 and 2 after reading the reviews. I needed a 4 on top and a 2 on the bottom, but the 4 still fit great. It was super comfy, especially since I could wear a normal bra with it. The color was beautiful and bold. I got lots of compliments on the sleeve cut. Oh! And the bottom of the skirt is PERFECT for dancing, it spins and twirls oh-so-nicely! :)

Flatters those womanly curves!

This dress did run a bit large so I wore a size 2 instead of 4. It hit at knee length and the peplum at the bottom gives the slightest bit of swing when you walk :-) I loved the neckline and the cut-out shoulders. They gave the dress a bit more interest which was great. I'm a very busty girl (I'm a 30 G) and this dress was incredibly comfortable up top even with a bra. RTR offered AMAZING customer service. I tracked the order and found that UPS had screwed up and changed my delivery date to AFTER my event! I was freaking out and called RTR to see if they could help. Stacey (Stacie?) contacted UPS for me and let them know how important my delivery was. A UPS manager ended up delivering the package to me in her own car to ensure I was taken care of. I was soooooo grateful to both UPS and RTR for being so kind and helpful!

I rented this for New Years eve.

Overall a very pretty dress that is fitted in the waist that is flattering for my body type. I had to buy double stick tape for the front of dress hem because the 2 stitched side seams were not enough to hold the fabric properly and would cinch down and not lay flat across. Also the side arm sleeves did not like to stay down and would keep riding up. But still will all the flaws a pretty dress and I liked the color.

RTR for the Win in Blue!

Loved the color and the fabric of the dress. Its a heavier material but is still body contouring. I wore spanx and a strapless bra with this dress and it worked really well. I have broader shoulders so unlike others the sleeves fit OK but they did occasionally move around. Alas this is another RTR dress that i wish i could have kept. Very flattering cut and length but it does run big so go a size down for your extra size. The best part was that i had another dress picked out when i thought that it would be colder and the monday before my Thursday rental date i changed my mind and the RTR chat service was able to change out the dress for no additional charge and it took less than 5 minuets total. Love the customer service. Thank you!

Gorgeous Body-Flattering Dress!

This dress was absolutely perfect for an outdoor wedding! I loved the way it fit my body, but I definitely recommend going at least a size, if not 2 sizes, down from what you typically wear (at least if you want the look to be fitted). I am usually a size 6 and I wore the 4. I wish I would have rented a size 2 though because there was a tiny bit of bagging in the 4 and I think the size 2 would have made it look flawless. Overall though, it was a fantastic rental. The blue color is beautiful. The material is thick so it hides flaws well. I wore spanx, but I could have gotten away without them. Easy to dance in and I was super comfortable all night.

Perfect dress to dance in - all night long!

I wore this dress to a large formal party to meet my fiancé's family. The dress is beautiful - very well made, a somewhat thick fabric but with plenty of stretch and light enough to wear during a Chicago summer. The color is stunning! I found this dress to be a bit large - I usually wear a 4, but went with the 2.

Wedding

The dress fit perfectly! It was a gorgeous color and I got so many compliments. It was form fitting but complimented my figure. It was insanely comfortable to wear and I loved that I could wear a normal bra with straps. I would absolutely recommend this dress and I didn't want to send it back! Only cons were it was a thick material and pretty warm for a summer wedding and the seam on the bottom flap had come loose, but it was minor so you couldn't really tell. For reference I am 5'6", 150 lbs, hourglass shape, 34D and normally size 8

Gorgeous shoulder details and color

Beautiful dress with great details, fabulous color and fun ruffle but unfortunately ran a little large. I could not wear it to the wedding because the poor oversized fit looked a little frumpy. It ran large in the bust and ribcage area - but if you can fill this dress out it would be stunning.

Too long

The dress fit was great. However, the off the shoulder look did not do anything for me because I do not have broad shoulders to hold the off the shoulder part in place. The dress was also too long so the flirty flouncy effect I saw on the model looks more matronly on me. Great color though.

Pretty color and good shape

The dress was really flattering and the material gives you a good shape. I didn't end up wearing this dress, it was my backup and I ended up loving my first choice dress. Im usually a 6/8 and the 6 was perfect so it's pretty true to size, maybe runs a little big. The only thing I wasn't crazy about was the shoulder strap. That second strap that lies across your shoulder was a little awkward: if you're renting it for a wedding and plan on dancing, I might skip this dress.
