It was a great dress for a Girl's Night Out. I got compliments all night, and felt great!

It is definitely snug in the hips, so I suggest ordering a size up. Loved this dress. I felt great in it and got tons of compliments all night.

No one compliment in particular. Everyone just thought it looked cool.

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Pros: tons of compliments. I felt super trendy with all the cool details. Originally I didn't like that the ruffles don't go all the way around, but I ended up liking it better that way. I was adamant about not having a strapless dress, and I'm glad I didn't have to worry about hiking it up or hiding my bra. The upper portion was comfortable. No one else seemed to notice the things that bugged me. Cons: literally no stretch in fabric (really noticeable in hips. I was scared of ripping it when I sat down so I would bunch it up a little at the waist). Black shoulder tabs weren't my favorite, but they worked fine. Same with the ruffles on the right hip that I really wanted to do some gravity-defying thing, but they didn't oblige. Also, you might need someone to help zip you up -- the zipper gets caught kind of easily.

Being able to wear a stand out dress at a great price and not worry about it collecting dust in my closet!

I wore it to a wedding and got many compliments! It has just the right amount of bling and color to stand out but not show off and overwhelm. I am a bit a pear shape so I wore a size bigger than my normal for comfort as there is absolutely no stretch in the dress.

I normally wear a 4/6 and the 8 fit me in this dress. It is beautiful! The most gorgeous blue with amazing detail on the dress. My zipper was a little tough to get up, I had to have my husband do it for me.

Beautiful dress, but definitely order up!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress to my cousins wedding. It is a gorgeous blue color and the detailing is incredible. I have to reiterate the sentiments of the other reviewers that it runs very, very small through the hip and thigh. I am usually a 2/4 and based on reading the reviews I ordered a 4 and a 6 knowing that my hips are wider. I went with the 6 which was still uncomfortable but manageable. The ruffles create a great illusion and nobody (I asked several close family members) could tell I felt I was going to bust a seam. Overall, it is a beautiful dress, I received countless compliments on it. Definitely order up a size or even two if you are wider in the hips. I paired the dress with a silver bracelet, diamond earrings and a steel gray clutch.

Beautiful dress but runs small.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I knew from other reviews this dress ran small. I thought I might be able to squeeze in since I'm not very hippy, which is where other people said it ran small, however no such luck. Since I wear a 12, there was no option to order a size up. Luckily, I ordered another dress that wound up working perfectly and was very happy with that- in fact I think it was an even better choice for a day time wedding since this one is more on the formal side. (For reference, the other dress is the Trina Turk Walk Like an Egyptian dress- it's amazing!) If I could drop another size or 2 I would consider renting this dress again. Not for a day time wedding though, as I think it's too formal, but maybe for a more formal occasion. The color is a very bright beautiful blue and the belt is great.

Loved the belt detail & flow of the fabric but didn't end of wearing it. Rented for a wedding that ended up being much more casual. Wish I could have worn it somewhere outside of the house. Will end up renting a very similar dress by same designer for a Fall wedding - this blue was stunning but not a good color for Fall.

Based on other user reviews, I ordered my normal size and one size up in this dress - neither fit! I was really disappointed because I thought the dress was even cuter in person and would have been perfect for my event. Perhaps I have an unrealistic perception of my actual size?

Lovely dress

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
This is a lovely dress and was suitable for the formal wedding I wore it to. Size wise, the 6 was fine in the chest but far too tight in the hips so I wore the 8 which was better but still snug. It's also quite short, especially when you are sitting down; however, it was a great dress for the occassion. The color is great and it is comfortable. I would recommend sizing up!

Didn't fit, I had lost weight but obviously, not enough to wear a dress that had no give. It didn't come in a larger size. This was a back-up dress for one that I had ordered that was not available to ship at the last minute. It turned out ok because the dress that I really wanted to wear fit perfectly!

Wore this dress for a New Years eve party and it was perfect! The bottom didn't have much "give" to it so definitely make use of the free additional size and size up if you have a curvier figure. The tiered layers were pretty and flirty and the sequined sewn in belt was the perfect accessory already included! Loved this dress and would definitely recommend! Wore it with black tights and a black leather jacket since it was winter time:)

Love this dress..I wish I owned it. The color of this dress is just amazing. The ruffles give it a trendy and flirty look and the belt gives it just enough pizazz. Like all of the other reviewers stated, the dress runs small. For me, the size 4, which is my normal size, fit me better overall; however, the belt/waist area was so tight that I couldn't sit comfortably. I opted to go with the larger size 6 , even though it was loose in the bust area. I wanted to be comfortable and I also felt that the 6 was just a touch longer on me than the 4. I think this is just a great, fun, and sexy dress.

Order a size larger than you usually wear if you have any sort of hips or thighs. I wore this to a seven course dinner and it kept getting tighter:) I have worn this brand before and it always runs small. I would highly recommend this dress.

Such a cute dress online, just doesn't fit well.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I rented this for NYE (for an awesome price!), but was really bummed when neither dress fit. I'm typically a 4 in dresses, but have an athletic booty/thighs and wear a 28 in jeans. I tried the 6 on first, and the hips/butt were so tight I could hardly pull it all the way up, but the top was much too loose. The dress was just so uncomfortable that there was no way I could wear it all night. I didn't even bother trying on the 4 since the bigger size was so tight in the skirt. Such a shame too, because the design and style is great, and the sparkly belt that is sewn on the dress is a perfect accent. Perhaps this would fit better on someone with a straighter figure.

I zipped the 12 but barely. I could not breathe or move and it was inappropriately short. No possible way on earth i could have worn the dress. The dress is really pretty and would have been gorgeous if it had fit. Definitely made for the skinny minnys :-) Luckily RTR overnighted another dress that was gorgeous and actually fit! LOVE RTR.

Loved this dress. Runs small, I fit into the 8 but it was pretty tight so went with the 10 for comfort. It is a bit on the shorter side when you are sitting. I could tell the 10 had been worn more than the size 8 but still in good condition and no one would notice the small flaws. I did use fashion tape to tuck the shoulder tabs under, just not my style.

Had always wanted to rent, but didn't wind up wearing. I wish the sequin belt hit my waist, but it was just a little below it and I wish the neckline was a little lower. Obsessed with the blue. I always though the black on the sleeve was going to be a fun accent, but it felt a little unnecessary and just kind of there.

I have a large bust, and my hips are smaller than the rest of me proportionally. This dress was huge in the bust, and about 3 inches too long in the torso. If you are tall, with narrow hips and large bust then this is a great dress for you. It really was beautiful, but I couldn't wear it.

The dress is beautiful - but the sizing was all wrong...

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this for a wedding and was really unhappy with the cut of the dress. I'm a 6 bottom but always struggle with dresses as I'm a busty 36DD. Typically I wear a size 10. When this dress didn't fit RTR was GREAT! But since it was so beautiful I had two other friends try it on. We're all different shapes and sizes ranging from S-L/32B-36DD tops to 4-8 bottoms, athletic, hourglass, and pear shaped and none of us fit comfortably in this dress. The smallest girl, regular dress size 4, was the only one with room to breath and sit. No one wore it but we're wondering if this dress may have shrunk as it's supposed to be a 10. This dress was not worn. It is a beautiful dress but it's cut small overall and not just in the hips as some people have mentioned.

I'm typically a 6...an 8 if not. Rented it as a backup & that was a good thing! Didn't wear it. The other reviewers were right when they say it's tight in the middle...it's odd. I don't have a funny shape or odd-shaped body, but this dress is cut funky or something. I have a small chest, & the 8 was big in the chest...but SUPER tight in the middle, but fit my legs somewhat. The color is beautiful in person, so are the layers & the belt, just wasn't a fit for me.

I wore this for my 30th birthday party and would rent it again. The blue color is perfect and paired nicely with black tights and booties on a cold evening. The belt is waist-defining while adding a pop of sparkle. This dress runs a little small around the hips- order your second dress a size up!

This dress is short (I'm 5'8") and a bit small. The 2 was not quite right and the 4 was too big. Because the 2 was a little too small, the ruffles/fabric didn't lay right. I also thought the waist was too high. Didn't end up wearing it.

This dress' texture and fabric are phenomenal. A bit snug, and a smidgen tough to sit in.

The ruffles and color on this dress are amazing. They fabric and construction made for a classy dress but the texture made it incredibly fun. I'm busty. Very busty, so the chest was tight, and it was tight (even using the larger size) and rode up when I needed to sit. I wore it with a black cardigan and it photographed so well. By the time I was dancing I didn't even notice it was snug.
