Loved this dress. I was a little worried it was going to be a bit long for my height, but it was the perfect length and hit just a little higher than on the model. The color is much more neon orange than in the picture, so I'd be prepared for that (maybe get a fake tan beforehand :) But overall it was super comfortable, cute and a hit at the wedding rehearsal I attended.

This dress is super cute. I wore it with a wide brown, cut out belt. It is a bit sheer in the skirt but otherwise very well made. The torso section is stretchy so with the option of a 0 or a 2, I wore the zero. I am usually a size 2. I didn't think the color was really any brighter than shown either.

This dress was very cute and comfortable, but the bottom was so sheer I couldn't find any undergarmets that didn't show! I would suggest a slip if you rent this dress.

Cute but sheer

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Cute dress but VERY sheer - you can see straight through the skirt. Color is also VERY orange so make sure it will flatter your skin tone. I'm olive toned, so it worked well - but I could see someone who is very pale not liking it. Be ready to make a statement when you where this. But overall fit and style were beautiful.

Everyone's advice was "you should definitely buy that dress." It fit really well, and took me from dinner to dancing without missing a beat :)

This dress made me feel very beautiful! The only thing I would caution is that, if you have a small bust like me, you may need a padded bra to fill out the top. Other than that, I loved how it fit and it was a good length. I recommend it for any night out :)

New favorite

This has been my favorite rental so far. Loved the bright tangerine color. Others said it was sheer, but I didn't have that problem (don't worry, I asked a few people). Super flattering and runs true to size. Great for pear shapes. The top sagged a tiny bit, but I am small chested. The elastic back certainly helped and was extremely comfortable.

the dress was just what i was looking for for a summer wedding... light and bright. although i will say the fabric was a little sheer and in the right light, you may or may not have been able to see through the dress. other than that, no complaints - fit really well and was the perfect length.

Best for smaller chest

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size

This dress was really cute. I loved the color. I ordered a 0 and a 2. The 0 fit my body, but was too small for my chest. I am a 32C and it was too small for me, but the 2 was too big in other places. This dress is great for girls with a smaller chest.

Arrived when it was supposed to, on hanger, not wrinkled and with the return shipping in tact. All I had to do was drop it off. Easy peasy!

I rented this for a University of Tennessee football game in Atlanta. If you know anything about SEC football games, you know we dress up :) I had to have the perfect shade of orange dress and this was it! It was super comfy too. It hugged my waistline and went out right where I needed it to (my hips). It was the perfect length! I usually wear a size 4 in dresses but I read the reviews and ordered a size 2 as my alternate size. I was glad I did - the dress definitely runs big. The bottom is a little sheer - but just wear nude undies and you'll be fine. I wish I could buy this dress and wear it again!

The color is extremely pretty, and the fit is definitely flattering, esp the chest part. Like the other reviews mentioned, it is sheer from the waist down! I wasn't 100% thrilled with this dress, I've rented better dresses from RTR!

Great dress for a late summer wedding!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small

I loved this dress, the only reason it didn't get a 5 star is because the cups in the bra part of the dress were a little snug. The color is fantastic though.

knowing i looked great for a nice date with my boyfriend!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Date
I am large in the bust (34D), so I have pretty much accepted that although I am a 6, I should always order a size up for my backup size, since I haven't fit into a 4 since my bust grew a cup size two years ago. So of course, I got a 6 and an 8 as my two sizes in this dress. The entire back of the dress is stretchy elastic, so you definitely don't have to go up a size! I would order your normal size and a size down to be safe. I was still able to wear the dress, but since it was strapless, I was pulling it up a lot throughout the night. It is very cute though, I wore it with a nude slip and it was perfect, not too see through. It looked great with turquoise accessories in the summer and I was able to cover up with a sweater for work, and then dress it up for a date at night. A very versatile dress that can be worn casually as a sundress or dressed up for a night out! Great choice, although if I had to rent again I would probably try something else- the dress was great, but I wasn't in love with it. I didn't get that feeling that I had to wear it again.

I wore this to a party in the spring/summer and loved it! It was easy to wear and I got a lot of compliments! Great material, very classy. Looked great with gold jewelry and subtle gold pumps (or nude pumps).

Thin and comfy.

I rented this to wear in my brother's casual wedding (we were told to get our own dresses in orange) but this was even TOO casual. I ended up wearing something from Anthropologie. However, this would have been perfect for a casual summer event. It is very thin and very comfy. There are a lot of stretchy parts and the buttons are darling. The color is gorgeous and vibrant. I wish I could've worn it! :)

This dress was huge. The color was very pretty, but the cut of the dress was ill fitting. It may have just not worked well with my body type.

This was a nice, light, summer dress that I wanted to wear for my engagement photos.

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
I would have worn the size 0, but the top half of this dress had been stretched out from previous users (I have a small bust size). The back part is elastic/stretchy and was definitely worn out. I ended up wearing the size 2 because the top half was more intact and less worn out than the smaller size. So for future renters, don't rent the 0 if you have a small bust.

This dress is pretty sheer and not the best quality even though it has good cut. You have to buy a slip.

Dress was perfect for the birthday party I wore it to!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
Skirt of the dress was a little sheer, and needed a slip. Bust also ran a little bit big. I don't usually have problems with strapless dresses and the size of the bust, so I was a little disappointed with the fit in that regard, but the dress was still very pretty and I got compliments on it!

I rented this for my husband's graduation ceremony. Great color, easy to wear.

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large

The dress fit perfectly. It was very flattering. And very comfortable. I didn't notice how see-through it was, though. You may want to wear a slip. I have a smaller top frame so I was able to go down a size than I normally wear.
