Ready to party
I wore this dress to see Britney Spears in Las Vegas. The fit was very snug, but I think the next size up would have been too big. The material is thick and stretchy, which gave it nice structure and held everything in, though it was quite warm with the long sleeves. Made me feel ready to party and was perfect for the occasion; I would rent it again for a similar function in a heartbeat.

This design was perfect for our 1920s Speakeasy! Classy enough for a work party, but not stuffy.
Fit was amazing, and the dress is heavy, I didn't have to wear a bra (always a plus, am I right?). One downside to anything sparkly is that it is scratchy, but we do what we have to do.

This dress is sexy and eye catching. Definitely for a girl who wants to make a lasting impression.
It is tight! I fit nicely into the Medium but went with the Large instead to give me a little more length for cover. It is SUPER sexy so I had to tone it down by adding length to balance out the glam and curve-hugging tightness.

Beautiful and comfortable dress
I love this dress but unfortunately will not be wearing it. Rented it for a Boho Glam theme party. So comfortable, slightly heavy but breathable. It's not a stiff dress at all. The lining was really soft too which made it very comfortable to wear. I'll probably rent this again around winter time because of the long sleeves. Will also need Spanx under this dress.

Eye catching AND flattering!!!
This dress was a dream for my curvy figure-- It fit like a glove and the sequins are actually quite flattering for ladies who don't like attention drawn to their midsection, like myself!! I wore this dress for my birthday outing in the city and it was the PERFECT statement dress for winter the occasion! You won't be disappointed.

Vegas bachelorette weekend!!
Rented this dress for my friends bachelorette weekend in Vegas in Nov. It was stunning and fit my tiny 5ft frame well. The arms we a little long but that something I deal with all long sleeves. Received so many complements!!! Danced the night away and the dressed stayed in place. It is lined ver well but those sequences will find a way to scratch you...nothing that would deter me from renting again!

Vegas bachelorette
Oh how I wish I had a picture of this dress on. This dress easily has to be my favorite RTR thus far! It fit like a glove. The open back was super sexy without being too much and the sequins screamed bachelorette party! I got so many compliments on this dress and it made me feel like a million bucks!

Everyone loved the dress. Being a curvier person, after awhile I kept having to pull the dress down. But I felt beautiful

Wore this to my cousins sweet 16. Great dress, very comfortable, and not itchy. Ive worn sequins before and find it to be very itchy or scratchy but this dress was not. It was a great dress.

Form fitting but flattering
It was a very pretty dress and the color is very pretty, thick fabric that conceals a lot. I did not wear this because it was very short and I'm a mom that needs to bend over so that was a no no.

Perfect amount of sparkle for a holiday party!
I wore this dress to my work holiday party (and also my fiancé's work holiday party ;) ) and I got so many compliments! It was exactly what I wanted for the occasion- sparkly, flattering, and weather appropriate. It fit like a glove and was surprisingly stretchy for the amount of sequins it has. 10/10 would recommend!

Show stopping yet comfortable
The fit was perfect!!! Fit like a glove and was a comfortable and sexy length. I didn't have to pull down my dress at all, which is one of my pet peeves. I thought the sequin would maybe be a problem with my hair down but i didn't have a problem once surprisingly. It looked just as good in photographs as it did in real life. Loved this dress for my 21st birthday in Vegas! Thanks RTR!

I felt like a million bucks in this dress!
This dress fit like a dream, and was perfect for my 5'1'' frame. I fit into the small as well but the medium was just a bit more comfy. I did wear Spanx but the thick and sequined fabric was super flattering.

Gorgeous and very flattering
Wore it for my bachelorette party in Montreal in May. I received so many compliments throughout the night. It's flattering and hides all the problem areas well, but can also accentuate certain areas. I originally thought the design was a little too much when I saw it online, but trust me, it looks better in person. The material is thick. Perfect for those cold nights you're out n about painting the town red . I think this would be great for a bachelorette, night out, wedding. Perfect for Vegas too. Loved it! I ordered both small and xs. And I'm normally a 4/s

SUPER fun dress for a bachelorette party!
I rented this for my own bachelorette party and so glad I did! First of all, it does run SMALL. I couldn't even squeeze my arms into the small and wore the medium. It was still snug but fit my body really well and I loved all the detail. It's a perfect amount of glam and sexy, as it's short with an open back but balanced with the sleeves. Shows off just enough! Had so much fun wearing this one out all night. Would definitely recommend this for a party dress

Surprise Birthday Dress saves the day!!!
The girl in the picture is actually my sister. When she saw the dresses I rented she was so jealous she had to have this one. It did look better on her so I wore a blue one that fit my frame better. SO many compliments She is 5"3 135 LBs 32DD with hourglass body.

It was a HIT at the Emmy Awards!
The thick, stretchy fabric made it very comfortable to wear without a bra or shape wear. It was a beautiful dress and was nice to wear in the California summer weather. Received endless compliments on it for days. It was my first rental and it definitely did not disappoint!

Bachelorette dream dress!
I knew I wanted to wear this dress for my bachelorette once I saw it on the site. I was super concerned about the fit, and while I loved it in person - it took some convincing by my friends to wear it. It zipped with ease, it was definitely stretchy and comfortable...but I felt like it showed my belly too much. I'm short and the length was almost too short - but in a sexy way. The sleeves we long, so I recommend using fashion tape to hold everything in place. Even though I was self conscious about some of my curves, it was an amazing fit and I loved wearing the dress! I wore a regular bra with a low back extender and short spanks! The back looks way lower in the picture but IRL is less dramatic.

Gorgeous dress! The fabric is nice and thick, which I appreciate in a tight fitting dress.
I'm 5' 6'' and 125 pounds. The small fit fine, but I went with the medium as I was wearing this for a school event and didn't want to worry about tugging down the hem all night. I received a ton of compliments and felt comfortable. Great dress.

Show Stopper
I wore this to an awards show/party and was almost overwhelmed with all of the compliments I received on this dress. Thick and stretchy and high quality. You must go bra-less because of the back but if you are okay with that I say go for it!

Exactly what I was looking for
I rented this dress for a girls weekend in Vegas and specifically for a show we were going to. This dress was perfect. Didn't ride up at all. True to size in my opinion. It's also on the thicker side so braless is definitely an option. The back is low and can't wear a regular bra. I ended up wearing a bra with sticky sides and it worked well. I paired this dress with the Elizabeth and James Itten earrings (rented), the Sarah Magid Golf Swirl Double ring (rented), the Kate Spade Black Cameron Street Sima Clutch (rented), and Michael Kors Berkley T strap sandal. Absolutely love this dress.

I wore this dress for a Gatsby themed 1920s party
Fit was flattering. The pattern does a great job of smoothing out your lumps and bumps so I didn't need to wear spanx. It is thick fabric so it is a little on the warm side. A good winter or fall dress but not good for warm temperatures.
