RTR Customer Service - Great!

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
Dress ran far too large - I sized up in this dress, but I honestly could have sized down. The waist felt like it ran true to size, but the top half of the dress was huge - and I wear a 36DD! The back zipper gaped alot in the back, and folded down over the waist when zipped! However, the color is beautiful - a great gem tone for the holiday season. So size down!

Cute dress but didn't love it

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Dress is cute and super comfortable (great for dancing) but the material is thin and the waist is stretchy, doesn't give you any structure/support (if you're looking for that). I found that the top part felt too baggy and didn't really flatter me. Probably better on a busty woman.

I usually wear a 6 but would have ordered a 4 and 2 as backup given the sizing.

The sides are sequins. Not bad, just didn't realize based on the picture.

Pretty dress that looked better on the hanger.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
The dress is very pretty and the materials are beautiful, but beware that the model picture is more than a bit deceiving. The gold sequins are not attached to the main part of the dress, but are almost like pocket patches on the sides and do not come toward the center of your body as the picture appears. Rather, they are a bit slouchy and hard to see. While I did enjoy wearing the dress in the end, when I called/im-ed with RTR about the strange fit issues, I was really disappointed with the service. I was on hold on the phone for more than 30 minutes before giving up and communicating via IM which took more than an hour. In the end, I basically gave up trying to make another arrangement and felt like I was settling for this dress which is the opposite of how I had hoped to feel for my first RTR experience.

Would not recommend for a party, maybe a wedding?

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I rented this dress for NYE because I liked the subtle sparkle and jewel tone. However, this dress was not appropriate for the event at all. It is very modest and fits large. This dress is definitely not fit for a party dress. It would be very nice for a more formal wedding or party.

Didn't wear, proportions were way off.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I had tried this dress on at the RTR LivingSocial pop up and loved the color and the gold detail on the side. The size 8 fit but was a tad bit too snug on the bottom so I ended up renting the 10. Well the 10 was huge. It was SO big on top (it was also big on the bottom) but it was like hanging off me on the top. I was super disappointed it didn't fit because the fabric is so comfortable and I loved the dress.

It was a super classy dress, I fit right in at the wedding.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
I loved it, it was a little bigger than I expected, but I'm not sure if that's just because I haven't worn a formal dress in a while or not. I got a 6 but really should have gotten a 4 because it was so flowy.

Beautiful dress, but too big

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
The skirt is straight so I ordered up a size, but it was WAY too big. I think even the 8 might have been big. The color is beautiful and the gold detailing added a little something extra. I wish it would have fit!

Cute dress with very flattering fit

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Cute dress with a very flattering fit, covers flaws. Was very comfortable as well. My only complaint is since it is a loose top with a back zipper, the zipper didn't lay completely flat on my lower back and it was a little noticeable to me

lovely dress for many occasions

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
Got this dress for the $25 offer with other rental. It is a lovely purple color and the gold sequin inserts are matte, so you can get more wear options if you want to play that down. Initially, I was going to wear it to and evening reception, but got cancelled, so I wore it to church with fuschia sweater and snakeskin print heels that were nude/grey. Hated to let it go to waste. Has very nice drape.

Such an easy dress to wear! Super flattering and comfortable. I got lots of compliments!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size

It is a great fit because it cinches at the waist well. The zipper is kind of tricky and feels slightly too heavy for the material but it's not noticeable unless the dress is too big for you (when I tried on the 6 the zipper was slouchy). Overall I loved this dress and would get it in the other colors available too!

This is beautiful and flowy dress. Gold on the side is not too much and the length is perfect. I wore it at the wedding reception but I think it could be worn in more formal occasions.

Nice dress

I didn't rent this dress, I bought it because it's a dress I can use for a variety of occasions. The color is beautiful, pretty much like the picture shows. The bottom of the dress fits me well, true to size, but the top is big. It fits through the bust, but I will have to have the shoulder seams altered because the top droops.

Unique Color, Very Comfortable

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I had rented this dress in the orange color for another wedding and was excited to wear this one after loving the last one so much. However, I was a little disappointed with this one. I don't know if it just wasn't my color, but I wasn't as amazed by this one. It is very comfortable though. I found the skirt to wrinkle quickly. I would have steamed it between the church and reception if I had time. I had rented the 6 and 8 but went this the 6 as the 8 looked a little baggy on me.

Fabulous dress in a stunning color!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
I actually bought this dress during RTR's sale and I'm glad I did. I wore it to my cousin's summer wedding. It was so comfortable and I got tons of compliments all night long. It was the perfect length and easy to dance in. The other reviews are true about the zipper being weird. I think this dress was meant for someone really tall (like the model) because the back of the dress poked out and looked really awkward. Luckily I thought to use Fashion Tape and placed one piece at the top of my back to hold the dress up and keep it from sticking out and it worked perfectly (and held up through all of the dancing too.) It's an awesome dress! Get it! :)

Awkward fitting, cheap-looking material. All my other rentals have been great, I just don't recommend this dress!

Perfect fit. Not too tight in the chest or waist. The color was a rich purple and the gold sequined accent added just the right amount of flare. Very comfortable dress.

I got many complements on the dress, and it was appropriate for a wedding. Super comfy and chic.

Fit is true to size, comfortable and flattering. Wish I had worn a different color shoe with it (I wore a black pump).
