I needed a grey dress for my best friend's wedding, and I just had baby, so I didn't want to commit!
The waist is small, but the dress fit well on my new hourglass shape! I absolutely loved it!

pretty
this is a very pretty dress. It was actually "too pretty" for the girls night out... would be great for a more formal affair. I thought it was a bit short. Otherwise it's beautiful. I would have worn the sz 6.

Great for NYE!
It was a little tight and I wasn't a huge fan of the way the ruffles laid on the shoulder. However, It was a great dress and I got a few compliments on it that night!

I absolutely loved this dress! I
I wore this dress for my bachelorette party and it was a hit! I usually wear a 4 so I ordered the 4 and 6, I wore the 6. When I posted my pics of FB I got so many complements and everyone was asking me where I got the dress. Love, love, loved it!

Fabulously 20's styled!
I threw a roaring 20's themed birthday party for myself and this dress was perfect for the affair! I got compliments all night long and it sparkles even more than the pictures show. Perfect for the occasion!

Great New Year's Eve Dress!
I wore this dress for New Year's Eve, and I loved it! Just enough sparkle! I got so many compliments! It was a little tight in the chest so I went with the 8 vs. my usual size 6.

Gorgeous & fun dress, but definitely runs small
After eying this dress for months, I finally rented it for a wedding. The ruffles and sequins details are playful and eye-catching without being over-the-top. Loved the gray color, too. I do wish that the dress was a bit longer and roomier on the bottom half. It is very fitted around the hips and bum, and very short when sitting. The size 4 fit, but I was much more comfortable--and less self-conscious about the length--in the 6. I accessorized with 4" black patent heels, my own jewelry, and the Lauren Merkin Louise Clutch (not pictured). Received tons of compliments -- one guest even knew it was from RTR! Glad I finally rented it, but probably won't come back to this one.

Night on the town in NYC
Rented this dress for a NY trip and wore it to see Broadway show and drinks on rooftop bar. I got tons of complements and it was so comfortable. The fit was a bit tight, I normally wear a size 0 but the size 2 was perfect. It made me feel flirty and sexy, loved it!

Wore this to my senior prom and loved it.
Only problem was the black waistband doesn't stretch at all, so it fits tight there. I would go up a size, I regretted wearing the smaller size throughout Prom Night and was afraid to eat.

I received so many compliments on this dress. I wore it to a 20s themed company holiday party
I normally wear a size 6, but based on other reviews on ordering it a size up, I did that and it was pretty accurate. I ended up wearing the size 8. It was a little big on top, but fit the rest of the way down. It was a gorgeous dress. I received so many compliments on it. I'm so glad it was available. I had no problems with it and did not need to use the fashion tape that came with it, but that was more out of laziness on my part.

Perfect for day to night.
I go to many events each month where I am photographed, so I hate wearing the same thing twice. It gets very expensive to buy a dress every week. So I thought I would try RTR. I Loved this dress. It was easy to wear and looked very feminine. I am extremely happy with my first RTR experience. Will definitely rent again.

Love, love, love this dress. It was perfect for the 1920's New Years Eve party I attended.
The dress was more beautiful in person than online. I ordered sizes 0 and 2 based on the reviews I read (thank you all). I tried on the 0 and it fit perfect, but ended up wearing the 2 for more dance room. I typically wear a size 0 pant and XXS top at White House/Black Market to give you an idea of the fit. I had no issues with the waist line in either size like most of the reviews I read. Highly recommend this dress for a cocktail party or a 1920's party like I attended. I got several compliments throughout the evening. Thank you RTR!! I'll definitely rent again.

Wore this dress for a NYE party and loved it!
This dress definitely runs on the smaller side, particularly on the bottom-half. I would say the top half runs truer to size. I am a true pear and the dress was pretty tight through my hips. Because of availability, I ended up with an 8 and a 12. Normally I wear an 8, so the 12 ended up being way too big, especially on top. However, it did give me more room in the hips and made the dress a bit longer. A 10 would have been perfect. In the end I wore the 8, but it was a lot more fitted through my hips and ended up being much shorter than the 12. If you are a pear or hourglass shape, I would definitely recommend ordering up one size! Also, the color is a bit different in person than in the pictures on the website. It is more of a grey than beige, which I thought was more flattering.

I wore this dress on new years eve and definitely stood out as one of the only people not wearing plane black or all over sequins. This dress is so beautiful and very flattering. I wore it with a black tights and booties and a big necklace. Lot's of compliments. This is the best dress i've rented and I've rented many!

SO pretty, but SO small. Sad it didn't work out.
I loved how this dress looked from the front when I put it on. The ruffles hit all the right places and it was just so much fun... perfect for my industry event. And then I turned around. Ugh. I had the larger size on, but the dress was SO tight on my backside and SO super short that I was extremely uncomfortable. I tried black tights, Spanx, and no-go. Maybe if the dress had the rufles all the way around the dress or if I had gone up to a size 10 in ordering things would have looked much better. But I couldn't wear the dress looking as how it did.

I am pear shaped and this dress was tight in the rear. No stretch. I normally wear a small/2/4. I wore the 4 but wish I had ordered a 6.

Loved the RTR experience, dress, not so much...
I was going to a Roarin' 20's theme party and many other ladies had worn this dress to the same type of party. I loved the dress online and studied everyone's reviews carefully. Everyone is who said it runs small was right!!! I even called RTR to discuss. I didn't have my exact measurements, but when asked what sizes I've worn in other designers I said that most recently I'd ordered some Victoria's Secret bathing suits and had to get a small for the bottom and large for the top. RTR said I'd be perfect for this designer because that's how they run...small on bottom and large on top. Well, that is an understatement... if you have ANY doubts, SIZE UP! This was a great looking dress, however! Super cute and fun. It was my first choice because it fit the theme of the event while being a little on the conservative side. Loved the dress, wish it was made better to fit more ladies!!!

Perfect for a Gatsby themed party!
Absolutely loved this dress. I got tons of compliments on it all night! It runs VERY small, I wore a size bigger than I typically would and had trouble zipping it around my ribs, which is strange since I'm very small in the chest area. Overall, would recommend this to anyone looking for a fun, cute dress - the sequins really add a great touch!

Super cute, but tiny!
I got it as the back up dress because they only had the 4 available. I couldn't even zip it and since they didn't have the 6, I wore another dress. Too bad, because it was a great looking dress.

So flattering!
Picture does not do this dress justice! It's gorgeous! I got an array of compliments on it at a fall wedding in San Francisco. I've rented Sachin + Babi before and all their dresses look great on tall, thin-framed women. I wore a 10 in the last S+B dress, but I had to wear a 12 in this one for the waist to be comfortable & to get the most length. I'll be renting this one again :)

This dress is amazing , very unique! Hit me just where it shows on the model. I am busty but straight from the waist down. The two was a tad snug in bust but the 4 worked when I pinned in the waist. Soooo many compliments

Runs Too Small ontop
I normally can wear either a 6 or an 8, so I rented both sizes. Unfortunately for me, I was unable to zip up the back of the dress. I got to the top middle part of my back and it just was not going to go any further. Too bad...because it fit great everywhere else and the front looked awesome in the mirror.

Great Dress!
I loved this dress! I ordered a size 6, but ended up wearing the size 8. The ribbon detail was a little tight, so I opted for going with the larger size. I got a ton of compliments on the dress and would definitely rent it again! The bottom half of the dress is lined, but the top half is a little sheer in the back, but nothing a nude bra couldn't fix. This dress had great sparkle without being too much. It was also comfortable to wear all night; which in my book is a huge plus!

Perfect!
It looks more silvery/gray in person. The dress looks amazing on and is extremely flattering. I got nothing but compliments and girls telling me they wanted to borrow the dress. Only con was that it was a little tight at the end of the dress so it rode up a little. Other than that, I highly recommend this dress!

I rented this dress for a "Roaring 20's" themed date function I had with my sorority and it was absolutely perfect! I got tons of compliments on it. It does like more gray in person and fits a little snug up top. I usually wear a 6, but had to size up to an 8. I would definitely recommend this dress for any formal occassion!

Loved the dress!
This dress was fabulous! Wore it and got so many compliments. The fit was a little small and the ribbon around the waist was tight. I ordered the 2 and the 4 and ended up wearing the 4. The top only fit because I have a 34A bust, unless you have a very straight body type it might be a hard fit. But I would definitely recommend it!

Cute dress!
I rented this dress for my holiday party at work and got SO many compliments from my co-workers. It's a really gorgeous dress but it definitely runs small. It fit me perfectly, but the black waist band was very tight and constricting (there is no give). I would definitely go a size up. I'm also surprised how short the dress was (I'm on 5 foot 3) and it didn't look as short on the model in the picture. I wore it with black tights, which was good because it's also sheer. You'll need to wear it with a nude strapless bra. The top is a little had more ruffles on it and it was kind of flufflier than I would have liked (otherwise I would have given it 5 stars). I loved the bottom portion though. This would be a perfect NYE dress!

So feminine and pretty!
Wore this dress to a NYE party and got sooo many compliments! It might run a teeensy bit small, but that's because the black band at the waist has no stretch to it. I am 5'9 and a 34B and ordered the 4 and 6, ended up wearing the 6. Overall great dress, would def rent again!!
