Gorgeous and classic for a cocktail party

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large

This dress was a little big in the waist for me - I could have probably worn a 2 instead of a 4. Regardless, it was absolutely perfect for my event and I got a ton of compliments. I rented the Kendra Scott necklace pictured with the model and it completed the look perfectly.

The dress fit perfectly and did not run large in the slightest. The zipper was easy to handle by myself and the bottom of the dress was beautiful and flowy. The dress was absolutely perfect, no complaints at all. I received a lot of compliments while wearing the dress.

I worked in this dress all day and then wore it out that night with friends. If I was any taller I wouldn't have worn it to work or would have paired it with some tights from Spanxs. I was able to wear a real bra - which is always a plus and was able to move around without being constricted. This is a great dress for the fall with flats, booties, boots, pumps - you name it!

Overall, good

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large

Only negative is that the skirt flares more than I'd like but it's a nice dress and a good length for a short woman. I'm petite and the smaller size hit my waist better than the size I normally wear. The fabric has a business casual feel and it looks less dressy in person than in the picture with the model. It's perfect for work and can be dressed up for a cocktail party. Here, I paired it with a bolero sweater I own.

I wore this to a wine tasting in November. The fit was perfect to my frame. The length hit at mid-thigh which was a good length to pair with tights as it still kept the appeal. The dress color is more teal in person which was a pleasant surprise as it looks more blue on the RTR website. Overall I recommend this dress and even with the simplicity it was girl and fun!

I wanted something comfortable but cute to wear to my HS reunion. The skirt was a little fuller than I thought it would be. Also I thought adding a black skinny belt helped to pull together the look.

Everyone loved my dress and kept asking where I got it! I was so happy to tell them it was rented

The ponte knit fabric was so comfortable for a long night of dancing and mingling. I have a small waist relative to my butt so this circle skirt paired with a waist-defining contrast detail was perfect for my body shape. The cap sleeves gave nice balance to the fuller skirt, and they didn't bother my armpits like most cap sleeves do on me. I dressed it up with some glam jewels since the knit fabric makes it a bit more casual.

Looks amazing in person

Overall fit: True to Size

Pictures don't do this dress justice! It's completely adorable in person, runs true to size, and can be dressed up or down. The material is quite thick so I wouldn't recommend it for hot weather. It could potentially be work appropriate if worn with dark tights (it's a bit short for the office with bare legs). It was a tad roomy in the waist - which I don't mind at all since I had to sit most of the time I was wearing it.

The material of this dress was much thicker than I thought it would be. The bottom does flare out a bit. The top fit very well. This ran true to size for me. It was also very comfortable as the material had some stretch.

A SHORT dress that hugs you in all the right places!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
This dress was SHORT! Definitely not my usual "mom-appropriate" attire but super fun for a date night out! At 5'5" and a 31" inseam, I wasn't expecting it to be as short as it was. Thankfully, the rest of the dress is just so darn comfortable that you don't even notice. Due to the flattering cut, you're not constantly pulling it down like you would with tighter form-fitting dresses because it's flares out so nicely and never rides up. I didn't expect the fabric to be so thick but it made for a very flattering dress (and super comfortable). It's made with a jersey-knit type material that is warm and soft but still comfortable in our California summer weather. I think this is the closest you can get to feeling like you're wearing comfy sweat pants on your date night! I also was surprised to see the beautiful pleat detailing at the waist of this dress. Such a nice little touch that shows your dress is designer.

Loved this dress for a casual outdoor wedding. I'm usually a size 6 but preferred the size 4 for this. The 6 sat a little bit weird on my hips. If definitely recommend it. It's really comfortable but a bit short.

I could have worn either the 2 or the 4, but chose the 4 because the 2 was very short. I'm not that tall (5'4) so I would recommend sizing up if you are taller than me.

I ended up not wearing this dress due to the fit. It runs true to size and is very cute. However the skirt didn't sit well on my hips. I wouldn't recommend this if you have a curvier lower half.

This dress was great for a late fall and somewhat casual wedding. I didn't think it was huge wow but it had the perfect amount of stretch and fit like a glove. I was expecting it to be a green-grey but the color is much more blue in person.

Professional flounce

I love this dress. It fit really well, cinched at the waist, with a little bit of a structured flounce. I wore a blazer during the day at my conference and took it off for night. Even though sleeveless the material has a nice thickness that worked in colder weather. The color blocking is also very flattering. At my height it was a great length above the knee. Loved this!

The dress fit great! The fabric was a really nice thicker material. As others have stated it is a comfortable dress. The black band around the dress was more on my rib cage, and I might change that part to making it on my waist. Overall, loved the dress, and my husband loved the dress on me. I would definitely rent it again.!

I really loved this dress! I didn't think it would be all that fabulous when I placed the order but I was pleasantly surprised! This fit is so flattering and everybody loved it! The material is great weight and I just loved the drop waist. I will probably rent this again. I paired it with the Kendra Scott necklace shown in the picture! Definitely worth it! The 4 was a little loose on me but I don't know if the 2 would have been better because it was so slight.

This was the first dress I rented from RTR and it was perfect! I wore it to my school's Semi-Formal and received compliments all night. I wore the dress in my usual size and had ordered the next size up for back-up, however I think if anything I could have taken it in the next size down. The material of the dress is comfortable and feels well made; I could have worn it all night long! Overall, a really great dress and experience!

Fits true to size, however it was very very short. I am about 5'8'' and usually comfortable in a short dress but I had to wear tights with this one. Which was fine considering the fact that I live in cold snowy Michigan! They actually ended up looking really cute! Rented the Kendra Scott necklace pictured on the model and it completed the look. Will definitely rent again!

I rented this dress for an opening night party for a production I was in! This dress is awesome! I rented the four and 6 and while I was glad fle the backup the four fit perfectly! The dress was So cute and youthful. A little more casual then I expected but the length was perfect for a shorter girl like me and overall it was wonderful for a first rental. The pleats were adorable and the black band helped give the dress a great shape on a curvy girl like me! Would definitely recommend this dress

The dress was nicely made but not that flattering. It has a full skirt that accentuates a pear shape...in not such a good way. It is also too short to wear to work. A work party would be ok. Just not a great dress for a petite pear shaped figure.

I rented this dress for an outdoor surprise party I was throwing a friend. I loved this dress!! Nothing flashy, but the bottom of the dress has a little volume to give it something special. I usually wear a size 2 but opted for the size 0 in this one as the 2 was a little baggy (I think it was just stretched out). The dress was definitely on the shorter side, I'm 5'5 and wore 4 inch heels too but I didn't feel inappropriate at all in the setting I was in. I would totally buy this dress if given the chance!!

The size 4 that I received had the seams on the sleeve unraveled. The stitching was loose but I was lucky enough that the size 2 fit. The two sizes weren't all that different in fit. I would actually go one size down on this dress because it looked better more snug on and I'm normally a size 4. The material is stretchy but doesn't bunch even as it's smaller. Just looked poured on. Received tons of compliments.
