Classy!
The material was very thick but size 0 was the perfect fit. I wore this dress for my Easter baptism. Very classy looking with a touch of cuteness because of the peplum. I would rent this dress again for another occasion.

Great Dress, So Many Compliments!
I loved the dress although I was surprised it was almost like a corduroy material. It runs a little small in the bottom if you are hippy. Overall though, I loved the dress. I wore it for my bridal shower and got so many compliments!

I wore this dress to my engagement shoot in Arizona.
The fit was perfect on top, but the bottom was really tight. I think this dress is made best for slim and narrow bottom types.

Was a bit short and snug on me, but my daughter wore it and looked fabulous!
This is a very tasteful dress, made with a quality fabric. It was perfect for our event. It does run small and the fabric does not have a lot of give...

It wasn't delivered in time for my event. Dress was gorgeous, but tight even in the size up.
I didn't get the dress in time for my Arbonne White Party event. Super disappointing. But RTR refunded my $$ for the rental. It was a beautiful dress, amazing material that was supporting and so comfortable. However, the larger size was even tight. I'm normally a very comfortable size 10 and the 12 was very snug. Order a size up and get your back up size 2 sizes up if you are curvy on the bottom half. The top supported a big bust (34DDD) and was plenty roomy for an hourglass shape, however. I was really happy with the slimming effect of the peplum top. (It's a one piece dress, btw) I wish I could have worn the dress longer than trying it on and sending it back the next day.

I rented this dress for my rehearsal dinner and it was absolutely perfect!
Fits snug, the 6 fit perfect but could have probably gotten away with the 8, too. I have broad shoulders so I was worried about zipping it at the top... turns out it was fine! Goes really well with a chunky necklace. I would highly recommend this dress!!

Wasn't able to wear the dress, but RTR was very helpful with my return process.
Fabric was very nice quality and style is very pretty if you're looking to hide your midsection, but it was VERY small in the hips - would recommend ordering a size up.

Pretty dress for a bridal shower
The dress fabric was thick and expensive-looking and the cut was very flattering, however the 8 was a bit too tight. I had a back-up size 10 but for some reason it was smaller than the size 8 (2" shorter in length, which made it indecent on 5'9" frame). I tried to stretch the 8 out for a while but unfortunately I was not able to get comfortable enough to wear it for my shower. Recommend getting 1 size up for your dress and the back-up dress 2 sizes up.

Bridal Shower: It was very comfortable, sassy, and just beautiful.
The material is corduroy like but breathable. It was fashionable with a beautiful fit. One nit: the zipper had chipped paint/finish so when my mother zipped me up, she noticed that it looked old/heavily used.

Perfect Postpartum Dress
I wore this for my son's Christening. It was the perfect postpartum dress. The peplum really hides the belly! I got SO many compliments on how I looked, after feeling down about myself for a while. I wore it with black peep toe shoes as seen on the model.

Great fit and style!
Loved the peplum! Very forgiving. The fabirc is a bit thicker than I expected though which was a nice quality but did wrinkle a bit after sitting.

All White Dress
I needed an all white dress for a Diner en Blanc event. This did the trick, although the fit was tight (I am almost always a 4 but sized up based on other reviews and the 6 was a more comfortable fit). It was a little stiff and not overly comfortable, but looked classy and sophisticated for the event. Wore oversized pearls from RTR as an accessory.

Perfect rehearsal dinner dress!
I loved this dress. The material was pretty thick and I had to steam the peplum a bit, but it was very comfortable and had a lot of give when dancing. I received so many compliments!

Sassy and classy!
I love this dress! The peplum does wonders for the figure. The only downside is the fabric. It gets stiff and will wrinkle if you sit for extended periods of time. Also, I recommend sizing up.

Perfect dress for a Bridal Shower!!
This was the perfect dress for my Wizard of Oz themed Bridal shower! I wore this whimsical peplum dress with ruby red slippers and got tons of compliments all day! Dress runs true to size. Online it looks like the material is smooth but it actually has a slight stripe pattern on it. Would definitely order again!

Great dress for a baptism or shower
Wore this dress for my three month old twins baptism. I tried on the 4, which is my usual size but it was so tight, glad I got the 6 also. The 6 fit well and was comfortable but a little big in the shoulders. Overall great dress and I got a lot of compliments!

I ordered this last minute but it turned out great. I'm glad I listened to other reviews- it runs small. I have never worn anything peplum because I thought it would be unflattering but I loved this! Thanks RTR!

great for my wedding rehearsal dinner
I rented this dress to wear to my rehearsal dinner, and it was perfect. Several guests told me that it was very "Jackie O" which is exactly the look I was going for! Some reviewers have commented that the dress is not for curvy girls -- I consider myself curvy (32G bust, 27 inch waist, 38 inch hips) and I didn't have any issues with it being too tight in one place. The dress did run small, but the 4 was small everywhere, not just in the chest (though that was the tightest area for me). The 6 fit like a glove. There are all different kinds of curvy, of course, but for this one the dress worked well!

Perfect for Graduation
I wore this dress to my graduation ceremony for my Masters degree. It felt very stylish and professional! It definitely runs small, I think this is the first time I've ever worn a size 4. I got a lot of compliments and I was overall very happy with it! It was tight, but not uncomfortable. I also rented the necklace I am wearing with it - it looks great with a chunky, colorful necklace.

This was perfect for my bridal shower.
I'm small up top and larger on the bottom, so this dress really showed off my figure. The peplum was perfect for sitting and opening presents.

Wore to a derby party. Normally wear size 4 in dresses (sometimes 2). Had to wear the 6 in this dress. Was a bit baggy in the bust area otherwise fit perfectly. Absolutely beautiful and received many compliments.

Lovely, but too tight
This dress was very cool, but much too small for me. It's fitted, so if you have a little extra around the middle, order up.

Wore for a Mad Hatter Luncheon in April.
Great fit! A little tight in the bust but I have big boobs so I'm use to that. The skirt was a great length and the white dress was the perfect outfit for our tennis teams hat theme, "Breakfast at Wimbledon".

Classic and simple, perfect for a bridal shower!
I wore this dress to my bridal shower and it was great! It was a little tight in the ribs so sitting was challenging for a while, but it was OK by the end of the day. The rest of the fit was perfect. I got tons of compliments on the dress and felt great all day!

Nice dress but not appropriate for my bridal shower
The dress was really pretty it was just a little too much for my bridal shower. The slit in the back literally came up to my butt. And I was in a size 10, I usually wear a 6, occasionally an 8, but NEVER a 10! Make sure you order up a size or two!!

Strange texture, very tight, I usually wear a 2.
This dress was something I thought I'd love since peplum is my FAVORITE. BUT- this was a very tight dress (even though I went up a size) and the fabric was thick and textured (you don't see it very well in the pictures). I got it for work, I'm a news anchor, but ultimately determined it was too uncomfortable to anchor in for 5 hours. All in all this is a nice dress but you need to go at least a size up maybe 2 sizes up to be comfy if you have an athletic frame. The sleeve area was very restricting and I have a very small bust and average sized arms/shoulders. I didn't end up wearing this dress so there are no pictures.

Perfect for my Bridal Shower!
I rented this for my bridal shower & it was perfect. The peplum hides minor stomach bloating from eating, and the waist is super flattering. The 10 was too big, but the 8 was a little snug. It was a little tight around the arms, but after moving around a little bit it seemed to fit better - even after eating!

"You look like you could get married right now!"
I wore this for my bridal shower and I felt wonderful in it! I got so many compliments and everyone said I looked like I could get married right then. The fabric is thick which was very comfortable. The peplum sat perfectly with just enough pouf. I followed the other reviews and wore a size up and it fit perfectly. I really wanted to keep this dress it was great!

Perfect for Law School Graduation
I loved this dress and created some great memories in it! The texture of the dress is interesting (kind of thick) but damn it looks good in photos! I wore it for my law school graduation with a really dark (fake!) tan and it was a pretty contrast against the white dress. I would totally rent this dress again for another formal event: it is classic and flattering. I felt very "lawyer-like" :)

Wore this to my bridal shower.
I'm between a 4 and 6 but wore the 6. Fit great up top, a bit snug around my hips but looked great. It's a corduroy-like material so it was a bit stiff, but the peplum top stayed up and looked great. The thicker material was perfect for my December bridal shower.
