Fun, Flattering and Fab.

Size worn: 40
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
LOVED this dress. It was the perfect combination of cute, flattering and formal! It was the perfect fit, and really true to size! Great for pear shapes since it's got a fitted bodice (with boning) and flares out in the hips! Also, the pattern was a little more abstract than in the picture photographed. Adore.

Summer wedding - total winner

Size worn: 42
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
This was a fantastic choice for a summer evening wedding. It's a beautiful silk fabric and the color really pops. I got tons of compliments! The dress runs one size smaller than street (I am a 4 and wore a 42/6) and I wouldn't recommend it for the busty.

RTR allowed me to relax and not worry about what I had to wear on my sister's biggest day!

I absolutely loved this dress! Besides being flattering and comfortable it also had two huge pockets hidden in the front to carry my emergency bride-to-be toolkit - phone, gloss, ID, credit card - without anyone noticing!

I loved this dress, it fit very well. I wore this dress to the race track, spent all day and all night in it, it was very comfortable. My only complaint is that the pockets are very shallow, and when i stuck my hands in them, sometimes they pulled out (made it looks like little wings)...

Getting compliments from across the room - thanks RTR!

I absolutely loved this little dress. It was perfect for the event, a summertime garden wedding. The colors are vibrant, especially against the black background. The dress hit me about two inches above the knee. I am long waisted so the waistline hit near the bottom of my ribcage instead of my natual waist, but the cut of the dress - with the flared skirt -still worked well. LOVED the pockets! I received excellent customer service from Jocelyn on this order who helped me with concerns about size and availability. It all worked out fabulously.

So comfy!!

Size worn: 48
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this for a wedding and I want to rent it again!! It was very comfortable and it looked nice! It wasn't too long but it wasn't too short either! It was a little shorter on me than on the model but I liked that a lot better. My boobs are kinda small :( but when I put on my major push up bra from Victorias secrets, it fit perfectly! The pockets are kinda weird but I didn't put anything in them so it wasn't a big deal! Overall, I loved loved loved this dress and would definitely rent it again!

super cute, weird pockets

this dress was a perfect look for an early April evening wedding. i felt comfortable dancing in it, and got a lot of compliments. it was an appropriate length for a wedding as well. the only issue was that the pockets stuck out a bit, which i wasn't crazy about.

Very Fun!

Overall fit: True to Size

Wore this dress to a wedding. Received a number of compliments. Picked a 2 and a 4, wore the size 2. The pockets sit out in front and make the dress unique. Only problem I had was that the wire that frames the bodice was sticking out on the inside of the dress and gave me a good bruise - something that could be fixed though. Overall, I'd wear it again.

Cute and Fun Party Dress

Size worn: 42
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress for a summer wedding. The colors were much brighter than I expected, which didn't work well with my skin tone but it was still worked well for the event. The size runs small and I needed help zipping it up and it wasn't as comfortable as I would have prefered but not unbearable. Overall - a great dress for an event.

Just okay

Although the print on this dress is very cute, the quality of the fabric is nothing special. I wouldn't recommend this dress simply because the fabric makes the dress seem cheap.

Beautiful material, looked great for a summer wedding!

Size worn: 38
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was gorgeous - sexy without being too revealing. It was a little short, but I didn't mind that for a hot summer day. The fit was great for someone with a smaller chest - it was tight on top but had plenty of room in the hips. I loved this dress and would happily wear again!

Lovely dress; needs repairs

Size worn: 38
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this for an outdoor wedding, but ended up wearing it out for lunch instead. The dress itself is beautiful and could be dressed up or down. It fits true to size (though the sizes marked at RTR are actually one size larger than marked by the designer), so I would definitely recommend sizing down for a backup dress. While the dress is lovely, the dresses I received both had considerable wear, with the boning coming out at the top and bottom of the bodice. Fortunately, the boning was less irritable in the size that fit me better. But, I would not have been able to wear the other size due to the damage.

love the dress~

Size worn: 38
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
picked the dress in the first place because i liked the colors. was the expected length at slightly above the knees. there isn't much stretch to the fabric because it's silk, but it was true to size (at least for me), so it wasn't a problem until i ate too much at the reception. =) the only con is that i could feel the boning digging into my gut when i sat down without being aware of it, but it was okay once i adjusted. all in all, if i could buy the dress, i would!

Beautiful colors.... AND it has POCKETS!

Size worn: 42
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
The colors were great, and I received a lot of compliments. I only ended up receiving the size 42 I ordered (the size 40 had been damaged by the previous renter) and although RTR sent me another dress, it didn't end up being formal enough. I definitely needed a padded bra and had to keep pulling it up over the course of the evening. I think if I had work a size 40 it would have been fine. Overall, I would definitely rent it again - just need a smaller size or bigger boobs!

Unique dress

Size worn: 40
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
I was hesitant to order this dress because the reviews said it ran small and my normal "size up" option wasn't available. I took a chance and ordered it and it was darling. I'm 5'3" and it came to just above my knee. I wore my normal size and I felt the dress ran a bit big in the bust area and fit everywhere else. Also the pockets added a nice touch. Overall another wonderful rental from RTR!

Pretty colors & design, but had to be returned.

Size worn: 48
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
Unfortunately, way more pro's than con's on this dress. The dress I received was pretty worn out-- there were a couple areas that were in the first steps of becoming threadbare/fraying. I could have dealt with that, but the boning was poking out of the sheaths and would've been stabbing into my hips all night-- those puppies were sharp! And, frankly, while the cut/design on this dress is beautiful, the fabric is not a luxury fabric at all. If it had not been in disrepair, I would've not minded so much-- but it certainly was not what I expected from a "runway" dress. I had rented this dress for a girls vineyard weekend. I received it late on the day it was to arrive-- so when I received it, RTR customer service was closed and nothing could be done but return it. Better luck next time.

Doesn't look as nice in person than in photo

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The dress looks a lot less "flat" that it does in the picture. It's pretty but wasn't exactly what I was expecting. Definitely not fancy enough for a black tie wedding but could be okay for a cocktail party.
