Fun Dress

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I wore this for NYE and loved every second I spent wearing it. The fit was perfect; however, finding a bra to work was a pain with the open back. I would 100% rent again, just need to invest in some tape.

I wore this dress for my sorority crush party. I was nervous about it being backless, but the loose fit of the waist made the dress really flattering, and it was comfortable. Wish I owned it.

If only my torso wasn't so long...

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
The dress was faboulos, really, but I am long in the torso, so the dress didn't hit my natural waist like it should have. I don't think going up a size would have fixed it, but I wish I had rented the size up just to check. Wearing it without a bra was no problem for me though and at 6'1" the dress was actually an acceptable length!

The back of the dress added the right amount of sexy flair without being too revealing.

Fit was close to size, but a tad small. I got the 2 and 4 (I am usually a 2) and wore the two but by the end of the night after eating it was a bit tight. My boyfriend loved the fact that it was a little revealing without overly so. I was originally worried about the length but it fell perfectly right above the knee, however I am short so that probably helped.

This dress wasn't my first choice, BUT with the other dress not working out, this was definitely a great backup. The length was perfect, and the back was so cute. This was for my day of the dead themed bridal shower, and it was so comfy, AND I didn't have to wear a bra which makes my life a lot easier!! I would definitely rent this dress again.

Perfect Party Dress!

Overall fit: True to Size

If you are currently considering using RTR, the answer is YES! I have been using RTR the past two years for all my occasions. I picked this dress for a New Year's Eve party and it was wonderful. The lace and how the dress falls makes your look very classy. For this dress you will need the sticky bra, but it is worth looking and feeling perfect all night long.

Perfect dress for a bachelorette party

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I rented this dress for a friends 'little black dress' bachelorette party and it was perfect. it was just the right amount of sassy to be fun without being too over-the-top that it took away from the bride. A couple warnings though - don't expect to be able to wear any sort of bra, and I would suggest bike/yoga shorts underneath, because it blows up easily

I wore this to a spring sports banquet, the back was perfect but the front wasn't my favorite. Add colorful jewelry and shoes helped to spice it up. I got a 6 and an 8 and the 8 just slightly fit me better. Overall a great dress.

Wore this for a little black dress bachelorette party. The length was great, it's a little longer in the back than in the front. The front is really simple, but the lace panels on the side and the open back are a great touch. Did not wear a bra and it was fine, even dancing all night.

I know the pic sucks it was taken with my 9 yr olds 3DS lol....but the dress is amazing and I felt beautiful. I added a metal studded belt from charming charles...and a chain metal necklace from there also....amazing.....very fun and flirty went out for cocktails and a beautiful dinner and fit in and even the hostess asked about the dress and who the designer was she wanted the same dress I am a 36DDD and I wear a size 10-12 but ladies remember street sizes and formal or designer dresses typically run a size sometimes 2 ..smaller han your street size....dress your measurements dont obsess about clothing size that never matters anyway...the look and the fit are all that really matter and how beautiful you look in it. Have fun hope this helps my beautiful ladies out there that arent bone thin

This dress fits very comfortably with elastic around the waist. I love the open back. It's very simple however and isn't something I'd normally spend money to rent, but was my free birthday dress. I was just going out to dinner so it was perfect for that. The front is very simple, plain full coverage.

Loved the back of this dress! Loved the lace detailing and length. If you have a shorter torso and/or carry your weight around your middle, it can be a big unflattering on the waist. If empire waisted things look good on you though, you're solid! I played it up with pearls and red heels.

Great fit and perfect to wear with heels or flats. I wore sandals and dressed it down for a beach bar. You can't wear a bra but the front is tight enough that you don't have to worry too much. The back is absolutely the best part of the dress. Very fun little LBD.

Fit well, I definitely loved the Braza petals. I wore fun shoes and a statement necklace to spruce up the front. The waist was a tiny bit big but it worked out fine. Also, the back is the statement so I suggest wearing your hair up or to the side.

This dress fit perfectly. It sat on the waist very well and comfortably. The dress itself exhumed the feeling of class and sophistication but with a little bit of sexyness because of the open back. I would definitely give this dress a try if you want to keep it simple but unique at the same time.

We rented this for my daughter's senior homecoming dance. This was our first rental and were nervous about fit so we had it come a day early just in case we had to run out somewhere and buy a dress. It was a perfect fit on her and she looked beautiful! The only tip I can give anyone is make sure that you buy the 'stick 'em' bra well in advance. By the time we went to buy one, her size wasn't left and unless you are small chested, you need something to keep yourself in place. Will be regularly browsing in search of a prom dress! Oh, and they "surprise" necklace they sent was great too!

Hit or miss depending on your body type!

Overall fit: True to Size

I ordered this dress as a backup and ended up wearing my first choice. If you have a hourglass shape this dress wouldn't do justice to your thin waist and might make your hips look wider because it sits right under the chest and a few inches above the waistline. You might also run into sideboob problems if you decide to go braless. The height is ideal for shorter girls like me and the back is very cute though!

I wore it for a NYE party while pairing it with tights and red booties. The 8 was a little big in the back, where the lace detailing was, so I ended up going with the 6. It bunched up a little if I didn't pull the dress down every once in a while but no other complaints. It was a beautiful dress and fit the occasion perfectly!

Loved the back, has a party-girl vibe

Size worn: 4
Rented for: Other
The fit of this dress is nice for girls like me who have slightly bigger hips and butts than their waist might suggest. The waist line has elastic and so there's a little give, then it's completely flowy below that. I didn't end up liking it as much as the tighter-fitting dress I wore earlier in the week because I didn't feel like it showed off my body (except for the back, of course, which was awesome). I don't know what the right undergarments are to wear with a backless dress (because I didn't wear a bra) but I would certainly recommend wearing something. There are darts in the front and, uh, sometimes things don't perfectly align.

-fit is true to size -beautiful lace details on side -I have a small waist and bigger upper thighs. This dress perfectly balanced my body type because it conches the waist and flares out to skim over the legs -halter top was very flattering for shoulders -you will need a sticky bra as it is backless -very comfortable -didn't have to adjust at all during the night

Overall fit: True to Size

(I'm on the right) Fits great! The waistband was a little tight/uncomfortable, but super comfortable and low maintenance otherwise. I carry my weight around my midsection so I was worried about it looking a bit like a maternity dress. Maybe if I was a few pounds heavier it would've, or if it wasn't black. Worked out great for a fraternity formal. Definitely need a stick on bra. Loved it, can go for so many different events depending on how you dress it up!
