Cute & sexy party dress

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I ordered a size 4, as I'm a 34D with a small waist. This dress fit perfectly! It fell above my knees and my chest fit comfortably in the cups. Even though I was dancing a lot at prom, I didn't have to pull it up every five seconds. Literally the most perfect dress if you're a girly-girl and want something hot & fun. Note: it's not as hot pink as it is in the picture, it's more magenta-y.

Loved this dress! It fit perfectly all night long, even while dancing! I was glad that I did not have to pull it up at all. The color was a little more magenta-y than pink, but it was very pretty.

I ordered a size 2, & 0 - I went with the 2 and it fit perfectly! I got so many compliments on this dress. It's difficult for me to find strapless dresses that I don't have to pull up all evening and this one was great. There are elastic strips on the sides, toward the back for extra comfort and support - I'm 5'8" but a 30D (small ribcage). I would rent this dress or buy it if I could!

I rented a 4 and 6. The 6 fit - but it was extremely short! Way too short to wear out. I would not recommend this dress for anyone who has a booty. If you have a butt this dress will not cover it unless you are petite. It's a pretty dress and the color is not this girlish pink its much darker and richer magenta. It was a total miss for me - beware of the length.

This dress is super cute and fit normally but was outrageously short. The top has elastic in the back so I imagine it is pretty forgiving. Perhaps If I'd had a larger size it would have been longer--but the dress I had was so short in the back I was afraid of over-exposure!! Luckily it was my 2nd dress so I wore the one I had ordered. In summary--super cute, but verrry mini!

Great dress for a great night. Thanks RTR!

Overall fit: True to Size

Loved this dress! I wore it to my sorority semiformal, "Boots n' Beaus," and it looked so cute with my cowboy boots. I wanted to look girly and flirty and this dress did the trick. I rented a size 2 and 4 and went with the 2 because it fit more snugly. As has been said before in other reviews, the dress is definitely magenta, not "raspberry." Also, some other renters have complained it was too short, but, being short myself, I had no trouble with the length. Overall, a fun dress and another great experience with RTR!

The dress fit perfectly and was very flattering, and the color was vibrant and pretty. Best NYE ever!

I rented this for New Years Eve this year and I was very happy with my decision. It fit perfectly and was a good length (it's short!) Also, the color is actually prettier and more vibrant(I thought) in person than in the picture. Definitely recommend it for any party.

I loved the ruffles on the skirt of this dress! For girls who are small on top consider sizing down to make sure nothing falls down! I ended up going with the smaller of the two sizes for that reason. Great rental!

Cute dress and comfortable!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I originally rented this dress for a rehearsal dinner but ended up wearing it to a wedding when the dress I rented for the wedding did not work. I got size 2 and 4, and ended up wearing the 4 since it was a little longer and looser in the hips. The 2 fit, but was a little snug around the hip area for me, and the 4 was more comfortable. The bust was a little loose since there is no elastic, but the complimentary fashion tape worked well. Overall a great dress that was comfortable and perfect for dancing!

Fun dress, great color for summer!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
The shipment got messed up and the 4 never arrived only the 6. The 6 was too big in the chest and was falling down a bit. I love the dress, but think the 4 would have fit better.

This flirty pink dress was perfect for NYE and really made me stand out!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
You usually just see black and gold and silver on NYE, I decided this hot pink dress would brighten up the place :) The overall fit was good, the elastic on the back on either side of the zipper was a must for me, or else I would have needed a size 12, which isn't available! I paired it with tights and a belt as well as a gold necklace, bangles and clutch.

Pretty in pink ruffles!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Love this dress! It is a bit on the short side(I'm 5'4") and ran out to get spanx shorts to provide more coverage knowing I was going to be dancing! The back of the dress is a stretchy, though the rest of the dress has no stretch. I have curvier hips( I avoid any kind of straight or sheath dress) and the dress fit great.

Beautiful color, tall girls beware

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
The most striking feature about this dress is the GORGEOUS color. It's more of a jewel tone than as pictured above. However, this dress was way too short for me as a tall and curvy girl to feel comfortable in, so I was unable to wear it to my event.

Bright, fun dress! I got compliments all night!!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I ordered a two and a four, and I wore the two. Other reviewers had said it was a little snug in the hips, and it was on me too but you can't really tell because of the ruffles. It was a really fun bright pink and I wore it with silver sandals. I got lots of compliments and the structure to the top half of the dress was flattering. Once this dress was on, it stayed put! I'd rent it again!

The color and cut are super fun, it feels very high quality.

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This was my back-up dress for a wedding, but I was able to wear it out the night before for drinks. I actually liked how this dress fit me more than the one I did wear to the wedding. However, it feels only "party" appropriate. I would recommend for a birthday (especially if its YOUR birthday!!) or a girls night out. Not for weddings.
