Super cute on!
Loved this even though I didn't end up wearing it for the event. It was a bit small in the bust for the 2 as i'm 34C but the 4 was perfect!

Easy exchange for right fit
Guessed wrong on the backup size. I'm way smaller on top (think AA), so I got my regular 4 and the 2. Well, the 4 wouldn't even zip! Of course RTR overnighted the 6 with no problems and it fit well. I think I must be a "5" because it was a little bit looser on top than I'd like, but in the end it looked great. It's a lightweight cottonish material and was really comfortable. The skirt is REALLY full and would be forgiving on pear shapes like mine. The cutouts in back weren't as noticeable on me as on the model which was a bummer, but I wore my hair up so you could see it. Got lots of complements! Thanks RTR :)

This dress was better than expected.
I LOVED this dress! This is by far my favorite dress that I have rented and it's my 6th. I love the fun, full skirt. The back cut outs were perfect. I received so many compliments at the rehearsal dinner, my husband loved it so much he asked me to wear it again the next day for the wedding, I didn't but it was a nice compliment. It did fit a little tight but I didn't mind. I am renting this dress again!

Perfect Girls' Night Out
I wore this for a girls' night out and absolutely loved it. I went with the size 6 because the 4 was a little tight on the rib cage. The skirt is very forgiving but can get a little poofy. I was smoothing it down a lot. It was cold out when we left so I threw a white tuxedo blazer over it and it looked super cute. I loved the dress and got compliments all night.

Was Perfect for my body type!
This dress was perfect! It had enough detail that it did not need much jewlery to make it appear formal. The color looks more bluish-purple online and in photos but in person its a very pretty royal purple. I recieved many compliments and was very confident in its quality and make the entire evening. I worried that the dress would appear more "puffy" then I wanted, but in reality was perfect. This dress was very classy with the modern feel as well!

My favorite color and the color of my school!
I wore this dress to my school's commencement. It has pockets, which I love and is super comfortable. I will say that this probably runs a bit small because I had to literally be zipped into this dress- it took effort + another set of hands. I didn't receive a back up size for this dress so I had no option but to drink to fit in. It worked! (Thank god) If I received a back up size, one size bigger I might have opted for it. I also didn't need to wear a bra because the material is thick enough.

Very cute dress. Perfect for partying.
This is a great dress but i did have a few issues. The top portion definitely has no stretch in the material. I am usually a 10/12 and I couldn't zip the 10 up. It is fitted at the top but I think it was intended to be this way so you don't have to wear a bra. The cutouts are very minimal. They don't show nearly as well as pictured on the model. As others mentioned, the skirt was definitely fuller than I would have liked but I expected the full skirt after reading other reviews. Overall a perfect party dress. Very comfortable and received several compliments.

Random people stopped me to comment on how gorgeous the dress was!
It's no secret.. I'm a huge fan of RTR. Who wouldn't love the chance to strut it in amazing fashion for a fraction of the retail price. So I rented this dress for a bachelorette party. The full skirt was SO fun.. it is a little short.. anyone taller than 5'7"-ish might find it innapropriate. The cut-outs are subtle but still sexy. Random women stopped me and asked me to turn around so they could see the whole dress. They needed to know who the designer was and where I got the dress from. I shared my wonderful secret. The purple is a pretty royal purple.. I paired it with gold jewlery and it worked well. I'm usually a standard 2 but do wear 0's in some designers. I went with the 2 and got a back up size 4. The 2 was perfect but very fitted. The waist was very fitted. I was able to wear a strapless bra comfortably. Very cute and Very fun for a girls night out! Rented this again for a wedding! Loved it the 2nd time around too!!

The fit is very true to size. However, if you have a fuller bust I would go up a size.

So Cute!
I wore this to a rehearsal dinner for a wedding in NYC. It was perfect! The only thing is the boob cups are a little pointy, but you really had to look to notice. Other than that, it was simple and the cut outs in the back were sexy, but not too sexy.

The color was absolutely stunning. The fabric goes out at the waist so if you're very curvy, it may not be the most flattering.

26th Birthday June 28th :)
I rented it for my 26th birthday, and couldn't wear either of the two sizes (10 & 12) I received. I guess even if I had worn the 12, it still would of been too short in the back. Though, it's okay. Next time. Onto another event coming up soon. :) Still must add in and say that it truly is a very gorgeous dress. :)

The color of this dress is amazing
Overall, I LOVED this dress. The back is so fun, the color was amazing, and the skirt was perfect for someone that is "bottom heavy". I would definitely get the earrings with it as I was complemented on those multiple times, and told by one person (who didn't know I rented) this whole look, exactly, must be repeated. I am generally a 0, and couldn't even zip the zero up so had to go with the 2. The 2 was a little big in my top - i have small shoulders so straps can sometimes be a problem - so the top was a little loose but since these weren't straps that could fall off your shoulders it was totally fine (obviously you can't tell that it was loose in the picture). I loved it and wouldn't have changed it or worn a different dress. Was still a little tight on the stomach, especially as the night went on (food). And for the hour long rooftop happy hour between the wedding and the reception, it was a little breezy, and I really had to keep the skirt down! but it was fun and i loved it.

This was my first time renting - it was so easy!
So, I was so hesitant to rent since I was only going to get the dress 2 days before the wedding, but the fact that they sent 2 sizes helped. I don't usually like purple, but I loved the cut of this dress. The dress in person is very purple - it looks more blue in pictures. The dress looks great on but was so tight in the waist area, right before the pleated skirt, that it was a little uncomfortable. I ordered the 6 and the 8, but I wore the 6 because the 8 was too big up top. Also, the zipper is kind of tricky, so make sure you have someone to zip you up. It looks much shorter on the model, but it was a normal length on me. Bonus - you can wear a strapless bra with no problem.

The entire process was incredibly easy and fun! I will most definitely return to rent more dresses!
My body type is very little and I usually wear 0 Petite, but wore size 0. It ran a little big, but it was still comfortable enough. The color is amazing and had so much fun wearing it.

Lots of compliments on this dress! First time wearing a designer dress and I felt so classy!
The 4 fit me pretty great. I would have loved it to be a little tighter in the chest but I have small chest so I think I'm just destined to have things be a little looser there. I would not have been able to size down as the waist was definitely snug. Usually I'm probably a 6, but because the bottom flares out my apple shape allowed me to wear a 4. I wore this dress for an outdoor restaurant Brooklyn wedding and I think i was definitely a hit. If I had time I would have put my hair up to better show off the back of the dress! As you can see- the bottom pleated part did get wrinkly but it wasn't a big deal and this dress was such a blast to dance in!

Very cute dress. It is cotton, although in image it looks a little fancier. May compliments!
One of the best things about the dress is you do not need a bra. I was definitely in between the two sizes that I ordered (2 and 4). The 2 was a bit tight in the waste, but the four was about 2" too large/tall on top. The skirt has a great swing, with lots of light fabric. Great for summer.

Great for a dinner date - not too fancy, but still beautiful and unique!
The color and material were fantastic on this dress. I loved the back - it gave the dress something extra while not being too over the top. This was for a dinner date at a nice restaurant in Charleston in June so it was super hot out and this dress was perfect for summer. The only con was that it is a bit tight in the waist/ribs area in the 6, but the 8 was too big on the top (the straps in the back gapped weird). Luckily with some help I was able to get into the 6 and felt fine. There is a tiny bit of stretch to this garment, so the waist loosened up after a while. Would definitely recommend!

Beautiful dress fits true to size
Beautiful dress, fits very well. Only little issue is that it is cotton and needs to be pressed to get some of the cute pleats back. I did not have time for this and wore another dress, but I would have loved to wear this modern dress. As usual RTR service was awesome and they had many solutions for how I could fix my dress- I just called them at the last minute. Very summer wedding friendly.

Wore this dress for my bridal shower. I am having a destination wedding in New Orleans. Loved color!
This dress fits like a glove, hugging in all the right places! Super flattering! Only con about this dress was that it wrinkled very easily. I ironed on day of even and after sitting opening gifts the skirt was wrinkled again. Over all it was a great RTR experience.

Did not fit
Rented a 4 & 6 and neither fit over my chest. The 4 would have been perfect if it zipped over my chest the 6 was too big in the waist and too long but also didn't fit my chest. Was disappointed as this was my first rental and didn't get to wear it. The material wasn't the greatest either, heavy cotton. Looks nicer in the picture.

Cool, unique dress. Vibrant color. Unfortunately my torso was too short for it so it was gaping awkwardly at the top of the straps, but if it had fit better I would have for sure worn it!

Nice dress but nothing special...
I rented this dress as a back up for a wedding I attended in California in September. My first dress was amazing but I did end up wearing this one to the rehearsal dinner. The fit was off for me. The waist was true to size but something weird was going on with the chest area. I usually fill out sz 0 dresses fine but the breast cups were baggy on me in this dress. The fabric was also not my favorite. It felt cheap and reminded me of a bad bridesmaid dress. All complaints aside, I did wear the dress to the rehearsal dinner because the color was vibrant and the back was amazing! I paired with a flat nude sandal and cardigan to dress it down a bit.

Loved it in the showroom but the dress I received had a defective zipper :(
I went to the showroom to pick out dresses for a few upcoming occasions and immediately fell in love with this dress. It was a great shade of purple and was so fun and flirty. Sadly, when the dress arrived the zipper would not zip up in the back, even with the help of 5 people. I took it off and even tried to zip it up without myself in it and it still didn't work. I contacted RTR and they rectified the situation which I am very grateful for!

Perfect for a hot summer wedding.
Fit was a little big, particularly in the bust, but that's a common problem for me. Can be worn with a bra if you choose, but one is not necessary if you can fill out the dress. The color is even better in person and I got a lot of compliments on it.

Great Color, Fun fit!
I actually wore this dress as the host of a get together for a football game. Yes, in the south we dress up this much for football! wore it with cowboy boots and I got tons of compliments from guys and gals alike. The color is great, a royal purple, and the fit worked very well for my pear figure. In other reviews it said it ran small so I got a 2, but could have worn the 0.

Very sweet, fun party dress!
I love the style and color of this dress. It's structured up top, and the racerback and small cutouts really make it stand out among all of the other dresses. I'm not a very frilly girl, but you will enjoy spinning around and watching the skirt twirl out around you. It's definitely a dress worth renting. Unfortunately, I have very small shoulders and a smaller rib cage, so the fit was slightly big on me. If I owned the dress, I would definitely have it altered to fit as best as possible. But even though it was slightly big, everything was covered, and I received compliments all night. I was very happy to credit RTR and recommend it to all who asked.

Love this dress! I recommend it.
I am normally a size 8 but I had to wear the size 10 for this dress. I have a larger bust, so that could've been why. The material isn't very stretchy, so keep that in mind. I love the back of the dress! All in all it fits nicely and flatters the figure with the high waist. I got many compliments in this dress!

Beautiful color!
I wore this dress to a pre-wedding dinner, and it was really fun to wear- super feminine and flirty. I paired it with a turquoise necklace for an added pop of color, which was a great combo given how vibrant the dress's color was. As many have previously mentioned, the top is pretty tight, so I couldn't get the 0 to zip all the way up. The only reason I gave it a 4 is because the fabric is a less dressy than pictured (but its still a pretty dress!) On the plus side, this was a replacement dress I ordered for my event as the original dress ran far too small. My go to girl was AMAZING! She combed through tons of dresses and spent a lot of time with this picky girl (me) to find the perfect dress for my style and for the occasion. If only I could bring her with me everywhere! RTR continues to impress with me with its amazing customer service!

Cute in the back, okay in the front.
This is a casual dress due to the fabric but the cut in the back steps it up a bit. Wouldn't rent again because the front was just okay and didn't offer much appeal until I turned around.
