Loved it! So cute!
Loved this dress for a fun night out in Atlantic City NJ. Cute but well made and fit was great. Wanted to keep it. Fit was true to size. Not too short if you are taller and fit around chest was perfect - not loose or tight.

Very short!
Although the color of this dress is beautiful, I had to send it back because it was very short on me (Especially when I put on heels). I am 5'7" and have not had this issue with other dresses from RTR. Bummer because it is very cute.

Perfect dress
It fit me perfectly! The 2 was true to size and it flowed out perfectly. I'm 5'8 and it was neither too short or too long. I LOVED it!

pretty awesome, that sums it up pretty well.
I wore it for my sweet 16, and I loved it so much! It was so cute and it also stayed up pretty well the whole night, which is pretty handy :)

Valentine's Day with My Boyfriend (now fiance)
I think this dress is ver figure flattering because of the way it is snug like a corset on top and then poofs out like a tutu or something. I am only 5'2 and even I thought the dress was pretty short so I wouldn't wear it if you're trying to be conservative or if you don't like to show your legs. I felt very feminine, very sexy, and very perfect for Valentine's Day!

Being able to know i'm wearing something extremely fashionable for an afforable cost makes RTR indepensible for someone like me - i have champagne taste on beer money :)
This dress is amazing! So comfortable, flattering, and pretty! You can add a belt for some bling, or leave it as is. I honestly usually wear a 10 due to my waist being a little wider, but the stretch in the back of the bodice allowed me to comfortably wear an 8 - i even probably could have pulled off a 6. Overall, a great party dress for many occasions! Would def rent again!

This dress was perfect for the opening of the musical I was performing in. Fun and flirty without being too dressed up for the occasion.
At 5'2", I'm always concerned when I rent a dress that it's going to be too long. This dress fit perfectly on my small frame, a couple inches above the knee but not too short to be considered a mini. The stretch in the back of the bodice made the fit snug without being constricting. The boning in the front allowed me to dance without worrying about pulling up a strapless dress all night. I felt gorgeous and got compliments all night about how cute the dress was. It's a super flattering fit and cut for someone petite.

Runs large' thick material
I rented this dress for a wedding but didn't end up wearing it because it was too big and the material was thick and heavy. The color was darker than pictured and it was very pretty but I would suggest for a fall wedding or party.

Skirt not flattering
Great color, loved the top part of the dress, but from the skirt down it was all wrong. Too full and not flattering.

Feeling great in an awesome gress
Rented this for the Kentucky Derby Oaks day, where all the women wear pink. Couldn't have been a more perfect dress, and was so fun and flirty. The skirt twirls! I'm pretty small, but have a big bust (32D), so the 2 fit me better (I couldn't even zip up the 0). Is a little on the short side, so FYI if you are around parents.

Great party dress!
This dress was super cute and fun, I wore it to a bachelorette party and it worked great. If you are smaller up top I would definitly order a size down as it has elastic ruching on the top so is very stretchy and with lots of dancing can move around alot. The color is also more pink than in the photo. Overall super flattering for a pear shape and would definitly rent again!

love this dress!
I got this dress for my sorority formal and it was perfect! The color and fabric of the dress are stunning--it photographs amazingly. Also, the shape is really flattering and comfortable. It's fairly short but the skirt flows out nicely so it doesn't appear too short. I'm in love with this dress and highly recommend it!!!

Great Go-to Dress
I rented this dress and another one for my bachelorette party. The only size available that day was a 4 and it ended up being a little too big, but I thought the dress itself was very cute. It was a bit short so I wouldn't wear it for a formal/conservative occasion, but a fun party dress. The color is more pink in person, instead of the purple-y color in the picture. Wish it was available in my size but loved my back-up dress too!

love this one!
I really did not want to give this dress back. The top was a little big on me so i probably could have used the smaller size for more support, but it worked out fine. Flowy and fun and the color is beautiful. Be careful if it is super windy when you wear it because it blows right up.

Fun color
I wore this dress to an October wedding. It's a fun dress, very comfortable. I'm under 5' and I found the dress to be a bit short, but I received lots of complements.

This was my backup dress to a formal event. I ended up falling in love with it! It's so fun and flattering. I combined it with turquoise and gold jewelry and nude heels. EVERYoNE had something to say about my outfit!

Bit short, but super cute!
Such a cute dress! Wish I was s tad shorter! The dress was too short on me, and with it having a "spinny" skirt, I was worried about showing too much.

The compliments I received all night, there is nothing like the dresses from RTR at the shops in our town!
This dress was really cute. Usually strapless dresses cut into my arms and create a bulge near my armpit, but the top part fit really nicely to my body and the bottom half was full and really cute. A little short, but didn't look that way because of the fullness of the skirt. The only negative I would say is that I would not wear it to an outside event where there would be wind because the skirt blows around very easily and you constantly are trying to hold it down! Very cute dress.

This dress is fabulous! I have a very petite frame. 5'3'', 100 lbs, 32 A. I ordered the 0, and it fit wonderfully! It fell on me where it falls on the model (maybe even a little bit shorter). I danced all night in it and got so many compliments!

I was worried that this dress wasn't going to fit, but was informed by the stylist that it was perfect for a petite girl like me. She was right, and the bodice still fit, even though I am busty. I received so many compliments! If you're thinking about renting this dress, you absolutely should!

Super cute, fabric has a nice weight to it to drape nicely. The back side panels are smocked to ensure a snug but comfortable fit.
