Beautiful dress!
I usually wear a size 2-4 and I ordered a 2/0. The zero ended up fitting best but still a smidge too big. Overall, the dress was so beautiful. Received so many compliments! Definitely recommend. Very comfortable:)

Lady in Red
Very cute dress! I normally wear a 4 and 6, but read the reviews and went with a 2 and 4. I wore the 2 - didn't even try on the 4. The 2 was big up top. I probably could have gone with a 0. But overall, the dress is nice and I got a million compliments! Also - the fabric is like scuba material - I didn't realize that, when I rented it.

It was a wedding on the water with a beautiful sunset.
My daughter wore red petal dress to evening wedding, she looked wonderful, address is dressy but still youthful and fun! She usually wears a 6 or 8, so we ordered both sizes. She wore the size 6, but it runs large, she wished she had the size 4.

Perfect for a formal wedding or cocktail party!
Gorgeous color, looked very expensive and I received a ton of compliments. I am 5' 2'' and it fell just above the knee. I was hoping it would be a bit shorter but it worked for the formality of the wedding. The only downside to this dress was that the fabric was very thick and made me feel a bit heavy. Easily able to dress up or down - I would rent it again!

Not the most flattering for my body type .... Runs a little on the larger size.
I rented the dress for a wedding SIZE 12, but never ended up wearing it. I have a fairly long mid-section and this dress cut in the wrong area (too high) in my mid-section making me look a little boxier than normal. Maybe it was the thicker 'scuba' material that made it feel big on me. The length was perfect, not too short ... maybe about 4 inches above my knee, and the colour red was beautiful. Overall it was just not flattering on me, made me look wider than I am.

Lady in red!
Great dress. Loved the neckline and color. This was a replacement after the original did not work and there were some trials and tribulations but it worked. It does run fairly big. I would definitely go with an 8 if I rented again.

This dress was fun and comfortable, but it ran very big!
I wish I would have ordered a size 0. This dress runs 1-2 sizes larger than your usual size (I'm a 4 usually).

Very comfortable and beautiful color
The fabric is heavier but very comfortable, I would recommend getting 1 and maybe even 2 sizes down unless you have a large chest. I wore the 4 but a 2 might have worked. The skirt is very full but not unflattering, and I am 5'3 and it hit just above my knee, I would have preferred if it were slightly shorter, if it was I would have rated it a 5. Paired it with nude strappy heels and a colorful statement necklace to make it really pop.

Great dress for dancing!
Loved the dress & received many compliments. Fits a little large; I ordered my usual size 10, but wore the 8 as the fabric is flexible and very forgiving. The bust runs a little large, but other than that I loved everything about this dress! Incredibly comfortable.

It did not work for me.
The top fit OK, but the bottom was much fuller than I was expecting. The material itself is a little stretchy but very thick. I felt like I was wearing a blanket or carpet. I ordered sizes 4 and 6 and BOTH were too big. The color was nice;)

Did not wear
Dress was beautiful. Thick Material, very nice structure, a bit low cut, however it runs VERY large. I am usually a size 10 - the 8 was too large to wear. Unfortunately the 6 was not available to ship, but RTR was very accommodating and tried to send me back ups overnight - however there was nothing available in my size.

Runs large - huge even!
This dress has a great cut and the color is perfect, but it runs very, very large. I wish I had more reviews to judge by, I would've ordered smaller. I'm somewhere between an 8 and 10 typically, but the 8 in this dress was large all over - shoulders, bust, waist - by literally inches. I'm not even sure if a 6 would've fit. It's a heavy scuba-esque fabric so I think it needs to be tight to look good, otherwise it just floats our from your body and doesn't hang at all. It's a pretty dress with a stunning neckline, so I would still recommend it to others - but size down at least one size, maybe even two for your backup.

Didn't show off your figure nicely
The pleats were very unflattering. Made you look a lot larger than you were. Maybe I could have sized down to an 8 and it would have looked better. Just overall, not a good fit.

The event was on an island in CT with an amazing view. You couldn't beat the site!
I didn't end up wearing the dress for the wedding as even though I got the size I wear and size smaller, the smaller size was still way to big. So it ended up being unflattering. Also the material was a bit weird for an outdoor wedding.

Flattering neckline, perfect color.
Like several others have said, this dress runs a size or two large. The size I ordered was returned damaged, and the back-up size was much too big, which is the only reason I didn't wear it. The color is gorgeous, and the scuba fabric keeps the skirt full. The sweetheart neckline was flattering without being too revealing, even with my 32F bust. Will definitely try to rent again in a smaller size.

The people
The dress is very pretty but it is not made for big hips..it makes your hips look bigger…its made for someone that has big breasts to fill the top but a thin wastes and no hips. due to the pleats all around the waist, the flair look is not flattering on a big hip woman. Beautiful dress though!!

I really loved this dress so much! Received tons of comments on it. Only thing was it ran a big. Wish I would have ordered a size smaller. When I sat down the straps would slide down some. Other than that, worked great for my first rental!

Large fit with boning in bust
This dress made me feel awkward. It was huge and the bust dipped way too low with awkward boning that didn't sit right, and just maybe look large all over. The dress was too big and didn't hit at my natural waist so it just hung strange. and just made me look boxier than I already am. It just made me feel big, didn't fit me correctly, and was just too large for me. Not a favorite for petite girls.

I didn't end up wearing.
The dress was too big and I really needed a 4. The material is really thick and there is a lot of it. I think that a size smaller would have been much better. I ordered another dress that I ended up wearing so everything worked out!

Black Tie Masquerade
Had I been able to try this on, I would have gone down another size. As other reviews said, the dress runs very large but seemed risky to order a 4 when I typically wear an 8. I would recommend this dress for someone that has a larger bust, I didn't fill out the top which made the straps uncomfortable. But the thick fabric is nice and the poofiness brings some funky flair.

I wore this dress for a 1920's Great Gatsby themed wedding. I got TREMENDOUS compliments from people
The fit was super comfortable. Even though it's a heavier material, it doesn't feel heavy when it's on. I was able to dance all night in it and not feel sweaty. I am usually a size 4 or 5 in dresses so I ordered a 4 and a 2. The 2 fit comfortably, but towards the end of the night the straps were falling off my shoulders. I could have maybe gone with a 0 for this one. I was able to wear a regular bra which was a huge plus as well. All in all, absolutely great dress and I would recommend it to anyone!

Stylist Review
This style runs a bit large, so you should size down from your usual size for your back up. It is better for larger busted women, as there is a lot of room in that area. The perfect dress for a holiday party this season. Pair with gold accessories and shoes!

Easy delivery
Pros: no ironing needed therefore great for travel. Great for breastfeeding moms! Great shape. Bright color. Full skirt which is great for hiding bigger hips and bottoms Cons: horrible chest fit for anyone under a C cup. The top doesn't hold up well. Special bra needed. Tape needed to hold it together.

Make a statement while staying comfy.
The dress was comfortable and traveled exceptionally well. The color was the wonder rich red (not to orange). I got SOOO many compliments on my dress (the photo provided was because someone loved the dress so much they wanted a photo). My only concern was that it was bit short waisted (I am a busty girl so the dress pulled up in order to cover my chest, meaning I was pulling it down all night and therefore showing even more boob). Perfect for a fall or winter party. May not breath well enough for summer.

Wore this to a Red Dress Charity Event. It was comfortable and was a true red, not a hint of orange.
The dress is made from the scuba material. It is thick enough to lay smooth, but not too heavy. Great dress for dancing. It was comfortable to wear all night. The deep v required a plunge bra. The length was exactly what I like, just above my knee. It flares out more than I would have liked, but still felt great in it.

Too big for a petite frame.
When I rented this dress there were no reviews as it was a new addition to RTR. The dress came and even the size two was huge. I am flat chested with a petite frame and this dress swallowed me. Highly recommend the dress for someone taller and bustier! Beautiful color though. I really wanted this dress to work out!

The dress was perfect for a wedding setting, super fun to dance in and made me feel great!
As others say, this dress definitely runs large. I suggest getting your dress options in both 2 sizes down and 1 size down from your normal size. I got my normal size and one size down and while I wore the one size down and it was fine, it would have been better with a size lower. Overall, great dress and lots of compliments! I'd rent again!

Great dress, classy and sexy!
The dress ran large. So glad I read previous reviews and changed to a size 0 which was even a little to big on me. I am 5'4" and about 125 lbs. I felt like when I got the dress it needed something a little extra so I bought a little black belt which pulled the whole look together. I would definitely recommend this dress. I got so many compliments and I would definitely consider renting it again!! This was my 1st RTR experience and I was really happy.

Absolutely loved this dress!!! The material and color were amazing! I loved the fit and the fullness of the skirt! It was perfect for the semi-formal wedding rehearsal dinner I attended. The only thing that would've made it better would be pockets! But even without pockets, I loved it so much!

Gorgeous- lots of compliments!
I wore this to a wedding and loved it! It was super comfortable and easy to dance in. Generally speaking, I usually wear a size 2, but really can wear anything from a 0 to 4 depending on the shape of the dress. I wore the size 0 in this dress and actually had to used some fashion tape. I taped the dress to my bra because when I sat down the dress straps were loose and my strapless bra would show. So with a little tape, the dress was perfect- so many compliments and it photographs very well. Loved it and would recommend it!

Comfortable and fun dress!
This was a fun RTR for me! The color makes you stand out and the fit and fabric is very comfortable for all-evening wear. Based on other reviews, I did size down one for my back-up rental, but definitely could have worn a size 2. It was loose in the waist and bust. I had to use fashion tape in order for the straps to stay put. But other than that, a sassy but classy look that I'm glad I went with! Got lots of compliments and felt fabulous dancing in it!

A Comfortable Dress, Great for Dancing!
This was my first rental! I usually wear a size 10, and upon reading previous reviews, ordered a 6 and 8. This dress does run a couple sizes large. I ended up wearing the 6, and I could have even worn a 4 for a slightly more fitted look! I wore a bra with it but used some fashion tape (double sided tape) to keep my bra and the back of the dress in line. It worked perfectly. It is a beautiful dress and I recommend it to anyone looking for a modest, classic style. My first experience with RTR was great and I will be renting again soon!

I received multiple compliments on the dress and it was a classic choice for a fall wedding.
I am typically a size 6 but all the reviews said it ran large so I got a 4 as my backup size and ended up wearing the 4. You can wear a standard bra with it which is awesome and it was a very thick, nice fabric. It also arrived fairly unwrinkled which was great!

I rented a 2 with a 0 as a back up. I wore the 0 and there was plenty of room. I usually wear a 2 or a 4 so it definitely runs large. The color and material are beautiful. The sweetheart neckline and fit and flare shape are very flattering. It's also a great rental price. I would definitely recommend it!

This dress was super cute! Made the puppies look nice. Easy to wear. Not tight at all.
I stressed back and forth about if the 16 would fit me or not. I have a larger chest and it fit perfectly. I would totally rent this dress again. I wore it as my second birthday dress for my 27th birthday.
