Perfect dress for a charity auction.
Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wore this dress to a charity auction and just loved it - I got compliments all night. It's an event that's on the more casual end of cocktail for the most part (there were a couple of pairs of jeans even), and this dress was just right for looking polished without making me feel overdressed. I usually wear an 8 or 10 and the 10 ended up being a perfect fit. I did mark the dress as firing true to size but if you're in between is probably round up. I would recommend shape wear with this dress just because that's usually standard procedure with sheath dresses like this for me. I was also a little skeptical of the high neckline since I'm busty and that can be not very flattering, but there was plenty of room to accommodate my chest and the waist seam still fell in the right place. Most of all I loved that I could wear any bra I wanted!

I chose the 4 and the 6. The 4 fit the best while standing. The 6 was just too baggy around my waste. The sleeve were a little tight but nothing to make me wish I had a different dress. I wore this to a wedding so I was up walking around and dancing all night. This dress was perfect for a winter wedding. Beautiful color!!

"Purple" Cocktail Corporate Event on a Yacht
Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
I received many compliments, as seems to be the case whenever I wear an RTR dress. I ordered an 8 and 10, but the 8 ended up being too tight across the chest and arms. The 10 was fine. I recommend sizing up if you have a larger chest, wide shoulders or arms. You can wear a regular strap bra. It was very comfortable and appropriate for a corporate event.

This dress is the perfect color and weight for a crisp Fall Wedding. I received so many compliments!
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This was my first RTR rental and I will definitely be a repeat customer. The dress came on time and fit me like a dream, I'm normally a size 2 and that was the right size for me. I'm also very petite so the length was perfect for a conservative Fall wedding. I took off one star because the dress smelled lightly of moth balls when it came out of the box, however, I just left it hanging in my bathroom overnight and the smell went away. Also, the sleeves were a little snug when I lifted both arms above my head. Fortunately, the length of the dress on me kept me flashing everyone when I got twirled on the dance floor. The lace was thick and well-cut so the dress gave me a flattering silhouette. I was also able to drink and eat all night because the forgiving plum color. I attached a collage of different photographs from different cameras to show how beautifully the dress appears on film. So many people stopped me to compliment on the dress and asked me where I got it. The best part of all, an ex of mine was also a wedding guest and he couldn't keep his eyes off of me all night. Sometimes all you need is a gorgeous dress and killer heels to make you feel like a million bucks. Thanks, RTR!

Size worn: 10

Normally I wear anywhere from a 6-10, thank god I got the 8 and 10 because the 8 was very snug. I ended up wearing the 10. The arms were slightly tight and the waist was slightly too big, but I wore a small black belt and it looked great.

Great dress! Fits all in the right places for perfect flattery.
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This dress was great! I rented this for a book launch party for a friend of mine. Fit really well and was true to size. I am normally a size four and I ordered a 4 and 2 (wishful thinking in case it ran big) but the four was perfect. The only thing I would say, was the arms were a bit tight, but I do have broad shoulders. I received a lot of compliments on the dress the whole night and loved the way it wore and felt on me. I would definitely rent this again.

Beautiful Color
Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This is a gorgeous dress which is well made. It is a deep blackberry purple. I think it fits true to size, I wear a 0 in all clothing and the zero was perfect. There is NO STRETCH to the fabric at all so the arms were a little stiff/limited movement. I just think that's how it has to be, if the arms were bigger it wouldn't have looked right. Loved the dress and got lots of compliments.

Beautiful dress! Classy, Modest and Feminine.
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
The color of the dress is regal and gorgeous. Pictures don't do it justice. It appears a little bluish in the picture due to the lighting of the room and the effects of white balance on the phone. But in reality, it's a deep purple. The lace adds to the sophisticated look of the dress. Definitely makes one look like royalty! I would recommend this dress for the classy, modest and feminine look. The dress was comfortable, although it ran small. I had to wear a 2 because the size 0 was tight around the arms (echoing off previous reviews, the lace isn't stretchable. You may want to size up if your arms are on the larger side). However, the dress itself was a bit constricting, due to its form-fitting design, so it didn't hurt to size up. I would give this dress a 5 for beauty, overall comfort, and how pretty it can make a girl feel! I gave it 4 stars because the size 0 dress came in with poor stitching near the zipper. Someone must have torn the dress along the zipper while trying it on. The dress wouldn't zip beyond the stitching. Luckily, the size 2 dress fit better for me, but it may have not been the case for someone else in my place. Anyways, beautiful dress!

I didn't end up wearing this dress. I'm short, with a large bust... and this dress somehow made me look matronly. It looks sexy on the model, but with it's high cut neckline and the skirt that goes down to my knees, I looked like a grandma.

It fit perfectly in all ways but that is why i always rent Shoshana. They are definitely made for a hourglass figure with a full chest. Love all of her dresses! I normally have to go up a size to fit my chest but can wear my actual size with this designer.

This is definitely a classy dress.
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
I ordered this dress because the one I wanted wasn't available for the date I had selected. I'm 5'7" so this dress came up to mid-thigh on me and slightly higher when I sat down. The lace detail is great but since I had another dress in mind when I chose this one, I wasn't thrilled about it. It was a bit plain for what I had in mind but this would be great for a work function or other formal event.

This dress was absolutely gorgeous but I couldn't wear it because by the time I fit my bust into the dress, there was no space for my arms. I'm not terribly chesty (36C) but this just didn't work for me.

I was not sure on this dress, but rented as backup for my brother's wedding. I was nervous about the sizing, this dress fit like it was made special for me. This dress looked amazing on. I was speechless. I tried on my other dress and didn't even bother to zip it because it didn't compare to this one. I loved it and it was absolutely perfect for a fall wedding.

TINY, TIGHT ARMS
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I ordered this dress as my main choice, and at the last second, threw in the Trina Turk Portrait of Elegance Shift as my backup, despite the fact that they appeared almost identical. Boy am I glad I did! The sleeves of the Davina dress were so tight and restricting I couldn't even lift my arms up past 90 degrees - hugging someone would have been out of the question. I recommend the Trina Turk dress over this one.

I absolutely adore this dress! Unfortunately, I rented it to wear to a dinner on a beach vacation and it was just a bit too formal. The good news, though, is that I now have a favorite dress and I can't wait to rent it again! It would be the perfect dress for a nice dinner or a fall / winter wedding. The purple color is even prettier in person and the waist is incredibly fitted and flattering. My only word of caution is that the arms run REALLY small.

Dress was perfect for a Christmas party I went to!
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Dress is true to the other reviews, it runs small in the arms. I am normally a 4 but ordered a backup size 6 and I am glad i did. The 4 fit my body but was tight in the arms so the 6 was more comfortable. If you have at all athletic arms i would suggest going 1 size up. I got plenty of compliments through out the night and the color of the dress is better in person. I would recommend this dress!

Great party dress - runs small!
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
Great dress. I am normally a 4/6, but after reading the reviews, I ordered a 6 and 8 given that my upper arms are not the slimmest area on my body. Everyone was right! I ended up wearing the 8 because the circulation in my arms would have been cut off in the 6 - and while the 6 fit better everywhere else, the 8 certainly wasn't hanging off of me, which was a relief. The good news is, if you're like me and a little self-conscious about your upper arms, the non-stretching lace does a good job of making them look slimmer - even if you're wearing a bigger size than usual. Overall, the dress worked great and I got a lot of compliments at my company holiday party.

This was a great dress! I wore it to my fiance's company Christmas party and received so many compliments on it. The fit is extremely flattering, and with the right accessories the dark purple color is cool enough to keep the lace-and-sleeves look from seeming fusty or overly mature. Would recommend!

I ordered the 6 and 8. The 8 was definitely more comfortable as there is no give to the dress at all, but I wore the 6 because it looked better and fit a little better in the waist area. The arms of the dress were a little tight but not uncomfortable to the point I didn't want to wear it. I paired it with a black belt around the waist and black heels.

I usually wear a 2 but the arms were a little tight on that one (think lace with no elasticity). The 4 was a tad bit too big but it still looked great and was a lot more comfortable than the 2.
