Needed something quick and fun for the bridal shower I was throwing and this dress was perfect!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress is fun and flattering! I know some reviews thought it ran big, but I found it true to size for me. I can range from a 4 all the way to an 8 depending on the designer. The 4 fit great but the 6 gave me a little more room to move and I figured since it was for a wedding shower flexibility was good. I am on the short side so I found the length to be just right as well. All in all a great dress for a formal party!

LOVED this dress! Got so many compliments, my boyfriend even wanted to buy it for me. It was a bit short when it comes to dancing and raising my arms, but besides that, I thought it was a prefect length. Wore this with grey/tan heels.

Great first experience! I was nervous to rent my first dress, so was glad I had two size options - prob should've ordered the 6 as a back up instead of a 2. Wore this to a fundraiser gala with a "Beatles" theme! The dress was in good condition & the 4 fit really well - length wasn't too short or long. Thanks RTR!!

I've NEVER had so many compliments in my entire life!

Size worn: 0

When I first put the dress on I was a little disappointed. I felt blah in it and felt it wasn't very figure flattering.. It runs large. I'm usually a 4 and ended up wearing a 0, thanks to past reviews. The only issue was the zero was a little snug on my arms. I had something else on and change back into it, it was my 'birthday' dress and I didn't want to waste it. I wore it to a 'brew at the zoo' event and I literally could not keep up with all the compliments!! My BF and I were counting in the beginning of the night and lost track. An older lady actually told me I was "a ray of light". I got compliments from groups of girls in the bathroom, people passing yelling out "nice dress", it was insane! I def recommend this dress, size down!

I wore this for a bridal shower. Many compliments. Fit comfortably. I usually wear a 6 or 8. I chose the 6 because the 8 was baggy throughout the core area. Although the 6 was a little short. The length on the 8 was perfect. The 8 was also in better condition, as the 6 had some frays along the bottom. Overall, I liked it a lot, color very pretty and easy to wear. I wld rent it again.

Beautiful color!

Great convenient first experience with RTR. Rented this for a wedding Rehearsal and it worked out. The dress is great quality and the color is stunning on. However, this probably wasn't the right style/cut for my body type. I was hoping to hide my post-baby belly, but this ended up clinging in the wrong places. Probably not best for people with bigger bottoms, or larger hips. It was a bit short, but that didn't bother me too much. When I dressed it up with a statement necklace, bracelet, and nude heels it was more flattering. I wouldn't rent this again, but I would recommend it for a different body type since the color is amazing.

Since it's a shift dress it's not form fitting in the middle, which I knew going in. I thought it was just a tad too loose for my liking and wanted a defined waist so I added a gold glittery belt and it worked perfectly! Even without a belt the dress is gorgeous! I would definitely recommend this dress to anyone!

Simply beautiful gown!

Size worn: 4
Rented for: Wedding
I loved this dress. I ordered a size down (2) and my normal size (4) because the reviews said the dress was a bit loose fitting. The 2 fit nicely but was short...as in if I put my arms straight up into the air, my entire booty showed!! As a result, I had to go with the 4 which was looser, but still looked great. Dress was still on the short side, be careful if you are tall and want to wear this out dancing!! I received a ton of compliments on this dress and am so happy I rented it!

I paired the Sea Water Shift dress from the Robert Rodriguez Collection with the Slate & Willow necklace for a Sunday afternoon wedding in late November. The necklace and the dress were absolutely beautiful together. This dress has a loose fit and can be belted, dresses up with a statement piece, or worn as is.

Great dress! Perfect for my office holiday party. Felt comfortable all night. Tons of compliments.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
Based on the reviews, I ordered a size smaller than what I normally wear -- which would be an 8 in most designer dresses. The 8 and the 6 felt pretty similar (no zipper on this shift-style dress), but the 6 was just a bit more flattering since it is a shift dress. So, the snugger was a bit better in this case. Loved this dress though - got a ton of compliments on the color, which was super vibrant and flattering. Some reviews said it was short - and it definitely was if I was sitting down. But for my 5'3" frame it was perfect otherwise.

I rented this dress for a December wedding I was in. I read reviews that it ran big and I am usually a size 4 so I got the 4 and 2 but I chose to go with the size 4. I actually didn't even try on the size 2 because the size 4 was already kind of short! It was a great dress and I LOVED the way it looked but it was a little short-- make sure to have some spanks on underneath if you're planning on dancing!

Great dress for a wedding!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I loved this dress! This was my first RTR experience and it was flawless. The dress is a shift dress, so I expected it to fit as such, and be a little "baggy" in places (mainly the waistline area). The 4 fit perfectly. I could have worn the 6, but it just seemed a little extra baggy and the 4 game me a little bit more shape. I did need to be careful a few times when giving taller people hugs, and lifting my arms way over head - the dress rode up a lot in this case. I could dance just fine though. The picture makes it look like it fit tighter around my waist, but it's just from my hubby's arm around me. It wasn't fitted around the waistline. Loved the color and the length was appropriate for a wedding. I would rent this dress again!

The color was beautiful

Size worn: 2
Rented for: Wedding
I got a ton of compliments on the dress. I wore it for a casual wedding. My only issue was that when I lifted my arms the dress would come up. It made it difficult to dance because the dress would become shorter with movement. It was a beautiful dress but I wouldn't rent it again because of the length issue.

Rented the dress for my 2nd round of engagement pics and the dress did the trick! The color was great and the fit was good. It was a bit loose so I had to be careful with my poses because it did bunch up in the front and gave the illusion of a big belly. Absolutely comfortable and the length was just right. I ordered the 12 & 14 and the 14 fit a too loose (borderline muumuu) so went with the 12. Got many compliments. Let's just say the dress is so awesome that even my fiancé wants me to rent this dress again!

I'm a High School Senior so this was my last SnoDaze dance and I got to spend with my best friend!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I LOVED this dress, the color was BEAUTIFUL!! I'm usually a size 2-4 in formal wear. I wore the 2 because it felt a little more fitted. I have very long legs and it is difficult to find short dresses that aren't too short on me & this was a nice length. The only issue I had was when we were dancing, if I raised my arms up the whole dress came way up! I think it was because it does not have a waste, which is the style of the dress, but I was not prepared for that happening:)

Rented this for my sister's Bachelorette Party and it was perfect. I'm 7 months pregnant and needed something that would fit around my bump and this was so flattering and comfortable! Not pregnant I'm usually a size 2 dress, and currently I'm about 14 pounds heavier than normal, and my chest is about a full cup size bigger than normal and the 4 still fit me, it definitely runs large. Would definitely rent this again - pregnant or not!

Beautiful color and great for baby bump

Size worn: 2
Rented for: Wedding
Loved it! It must run large because I got my normal size because the next size up wasn't available, and it still fit over my big 19 week baby bump. In the end I didn't get to wear it because my daughter got sick and I had to stay home with her and I'm so bummed! I wouldn't recommend it for a baby bump any bigger than 5 months though. It was pretty much at it's limit and there isn't much stretch in the fabric.

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small

I rented a size 4 and 6 and went with the size 4 because it was a little tighter in the waist section which helped give me more of a shape. The dress was SHORT! The size 6 wasn't much longer. The arms are a little tight so if you have large biceps, you might want to go a size up.
