Needed a great dress for a a semi-formal wedding - this was perfect!

Overall fit: True to Size

Fit to the description provided. will be tighter around ribs due to the wiring on the inner layer of the dress, lace wasn't too delicate that I was worried about it snagging or ripping.

Yet another positive experience with RTR! The dress fits very well and I just love the back of the dress. It's cute in the front, a little sexy in the back. Pair it with any great pair of heels for a classy timeless look. I wore nude heels and added a chunky neckless to complete my look for the evening! #fabulous

I loved this dress! I got a ton of compliments on it and it fit great.
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress fit like I expected. I went with the 4 because it was a little short especially with my height. This was actually my backup dress, but the one I had planned to wear came with a few rips so I decided to wear this one. I was glad that I did. It was perfect for a fall country themed wedding. The nude layer underneath is strapless so it will look best with a strapless bra, but even with a regular one, the straps weren't that noticeable. The only complaint I have was with the fabric, it wasn't like regular lace it was a bit itchy (but my skin is super sensitive so take this with a grain of salt). Overall, loved my experience!

A classic, glam, lace dress perfect for a formal wedding!
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was perfect for the fall wedding I attended. The cap sleeves, and illusion lace neckline gave it the vintage glam feel I was going for with a touch of sexy! I paired the dress with Oscar de la Renta's Classic Crystal Earrings which added a extra WOW! The dress runs true to size, and was a very comfortable fit for my pear shape. I wore a strapless bra, but I think it is was also possible to go bra-less because of the inner bodice. I would definitely recommend this dress to other renters!

This style is perfect for my hourglass figure, though I did find this dress to be a tad too big in the waist. I think the next size down would have been a tad too tight in the bust though, and since it was for a photo shoot, we just clipped it in the back. I imagine, however, if I wore it to an event for a long period of time, I would have been grateful for the extra wiggle room (I never turn down dessert). The dress was comfortable, and I didn't notice any itchiness with the lace. Oh, and of course, the rental process was a breeze. Thanks, RTR!

Great dress!! So many compliments and so much fun!!
Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
was initially a little worried about the arm holes on this dress being too tight since it's made of lace. But it actually fit very well! It was tight in the body due to the bodice, which I loved. And the skirt was super flowy, so I was twirling all night on the dance floor. (In saying that if you will be somewhere windy in this dress BEWARE! I almost flashed the entire parking lot getting out of the truck) The length was great for a wedding and I love the high neckline (with the peek-a-boo tube top bodice underneath to add a bit of sexy) it was great for a Catholic wedding. The detail of the nude/gold under the lace was great to accesorize with and you can't see in the pictures but the lace is sort of shiny. Overall, I loved the dress and really sad to send it back! And my boyfriend did as well ;) I love getting to keep my garmet bag and the fact that shipping it back is a piece of cake.

I want to own it!
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
So I actually ordered the 4, but they accidentally sent me the 2. I was able to get it on and wear it, but it was SO tight around my mid section. I was uncomfortable all night, but it was so cute I had to wear it and I didn't have time to swap it for the right size. I think the 4, what I ordered, would have been perfect. I added a gold sparkly belt and wore tan/nude shoes. I wore it to a rehearsal dinner. I loved it so much I really would like to buy it. I was bummed about the size mix up, but RTR made it right. Will definitely rent again!

Perfect dress for a formal to remember!
Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size

I wore this dress to my boyfriend's fraternity's formal on a riverboat in New Orleans. The dress flattered my figure so well--great for hiding a little extra weight around your butt/thighs, but emphasizing a small waist. As a plus, it moved gorgeously when we were dancing--I couldn't stop twirling around the dance floor! The only bad thing I can say is how sad I was to send it back. This was a great experience and I'll DEFINITELY be renting again soon.

Pretty dress.

Rented for: Date
The dress was pretty, but ran large on me so I added a belt to bring in the waist a bit. Also the underlining fell a bit long on one side no amount of tugging and pulling could fix it. Once I left the house I forgot about it, but still a bit annoying.

BEAUTIFUL LACE
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This was a perfect pick for an evening wedding in Los Angeles. The lace & detailing are simply beautiful. I expected to wear the 6 but the 4 was a better fit. The stylist suggested it needed gold accessories because of the tan slip. And that's what I selected (Alexis Bittar Double Loop Encrusted earrings, DVF gold boombox clutch). However, I believe white gold or silver would be just as fabulous.

Charity event at a private club in NYC
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I loved the very feminine, ladylike and slightly vintage style. Unfortunately the dress did not quite work with my figure. While the fit around my waist was perfect, both the front AND back of the top drooped unbecomingly. I've never worn Shoshanna dresses before, but when the line first came out I remember hearing the designer was aiming to create dresses that would be flattering on full-chested ladies. The dress would have been flattering had I a larger cup (and please note that my strapless bra was a little padded). Oh well--at least I had a back up dress!

I felt classy, comfortable, and confident in this beautiful dress!
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
A surprise invitation to an event left me with just five days to look for a cute, affordable dress, so naturally, I turned to RTR, which I had previously used for both high school proms and had great success with. And I found success again! I ordered the dress in my usual size, 2, and picked a 0 as my backup size because I had read in a few reviews that people had been able to go a size down. The dresses arrived promptly the morning I had requested for them to be delivered, and I was so excited to find that the 2 fit perfectly. I tried on the 0 just for size, and I was a little confused to find that it fit the same as the 2 did, and it was even a little bit longer than the 2. I stuck with the 2 and had a great time dancing and socializing in this beautiful dress, and I got many compliments on it!

formal dress, flattering fit!

Overall fit: True to Size

Really cute dress that I wore for a retirement dinner. Very flattering fit around the hips/waist. In retrospect, I would have worn this dress without a bra, even though I am pretty busty - the dress has boning that would have provided support, and probably would have been more comfortable! Other than that, no issues. Really pleased with my RTR experience.

I received this dress as my back-up for a wedding, but didn't end up wearing it. It fit relatively true to size, but didn't accentuate my waist very well. The seam on the dress was puckered, as though it had ripped before and was re-sewn. It was noticeable to me, so I called RTR and they quickly remedied the situation by sending me a new dress for the next morning. Wonderful customer service, truly the reason why I feel at ease when renting.

I ordered two RTR dresses to try for a work Gala, and this dress just didn't fit right. I have narrow shoulders and the cap sleeves puckered and slumped, plus the waist was a little too high. It was a nice dress, but not for me.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size

I ordered this as a second look, but didn't end up wearing it. The particular dress I got had holes in the lace overlay on either side of the hip. Thankfully, I had another style to wear so it wasn't a crisis for my event. I contacted RTR right away and they addressed the issue promptly. Other than the rips in the dress, it fit true to size, more on the snug side though, so I'd recommend sizing up as a back-up, especially if you are busty. The keyhole back didn't lay flat and I'm not sure if that was a stretched fabric or fit issue. Overall, is a lovely dress but wasn't meant to be!

This dress fit very true to size. As I am a little hippy the dresses floaty bottom half meant that I could order my true size - a 6 - and not have to worry about it being too tight on the bottom. Sure enough, it fit perfectly through my waist and then flared out making a very flattering silhouette.
