Extremely comfortable - great for dancing. Conservative while still fun!

Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I only got a size 8 in this dress (it was my second dress or $25), and I think it would have been more flattering in a 6. I was happy and comfortable with it, but think a 6 would have fit my body a bit better. Loved the high neck for a wedding - conservative but still fun and fashionable!

I usually wear a 4 on RTR dresses, but thankfully I ordered a 2 in this dress as well. The 4 was hugeeee on me but the 2 fit perfectly. The dress is a comfortable stretchy material and I felt great in it all night. I wanted a LBD with a twist, and this dress was definitely it! Absolutely loved it.

She loved it and she looked amazing in it! She normally wears a size 14 and she could fit the 12 or 14, but felt more comfortable in the 14, so if you're looking for a second size i'd say size down. She is 5'7 and the length was perfect on her.

Felt confident and sexy mingling with old friends from high school

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Dress looked great and was perfect for an evening wedding. I thought I might be able to wear it with a racerback bra, but you definitely have to go strapless. It looks even better without the black cardigan, but I don't have any photos unfortunately. I paired it with nude heels, an opal bib necklace, and the Kate Spade Age of Innocence clutch (because I love it so much).

flattering but of my comfort zone -- RUNS HUGE!!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
I rented this dress for a bat mitzvah party. I initially ordered an 8 and a 10 because even though I'm petite, I usually have to wear larger sizes because of my boobs. They thankfully arrived early, but the 8 was so big that I didn't even try the 10. RTR's customer service, however, was terrific when I emailed and asked for 6 -- I recieved a quick response, and the 6 the next day. The 6 was still a little loose -- I probably could have even worn a 4 -- but it was kind of clingy, and I have a bit of a stomach, so I still wore spanx. I also had to wear a strapless bra, but the dress fit my chest pretty well. It was surprisingly flattering, and I think the reason I didn't love it was just that it was out of my comfort zone.

I loved this dress. It was very comfortable and classic. Highly recommend.

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I ordered the 2 and the 4 as my back-up, because I can float in between sizes. However, I should have listened to the reviews, as I needed the 0! I never think to order a 0 because of my hips, but this size fit perfectly. Customer service was extremely helpful. My only "complaint" was that the dress was buckling in the back - I had three big bumps in the zipper. I called customer service to ask them what I could do to fix it on such short notice, as the wedding was now the next day. Their recommendation of steaming it helped a lot. After steaming and sitting down in the dress, the bumps were gone. Overall, I was extremely happy with the dress. Absolutely love the style.

This dress is hot. I am not as hot on the regular as I was in this dress, haha! Runs true to size. I wear a 32F bra and the little bit of stretch in it was perfect for a large chest.

Comfortable and cute for a summer wedding

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
The material and style of the dress is very pretty and elegant. It is hard to tell in the picture, but I'm wearing a boot for a broken ankle (not pictured: crutches). This dress was very comfy to wear, even in my wounded state. In terms of fit, I'm typically a 2 or a 4 in most dresses. I wear a 0 every so often, and this was one of those cases. The 2 fit just fine, but it was a little loose. Because of the shape of the dress this "loose-ness" was not flattering. I recommend sizing down.

Outstanding customer service by RTR to make sure I even had a dress!

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
You will probably have to size down more than you would expect. I'm typically a 4 so I ordered my normal size and a 2. My order arrived Thursday with my event being Saturday. The 2 was huge on me! In the mirror picture you can kind of see the bunching in the back, not a flattering fit at all. Contacted RTR but it was already after hours because I'm in Phoenix. Within 30 min of emailing customer service I received a response from Natalie, one of the stylists, that she had me set up with a 0 arriving Saturday. Very impressed with the responsiveness! The other 2 pics are the zero. It did ride up a bit when I walked and still didn't fit me perfectly but once I had the right size the dress was cute on. The neck was a bit tight, but not uncomfortable. I loved the racerback style and wore my hair up most of the night so you could see it better too. Fabric is pretty warm too, if this had been an outdoor event in July in AZ, I would've been uncomfortable. I probably wouldn't rent this one again but it definitely worked out for my event.

I wore this dress for a bachelorette party and it was perfect! Definitely get a size smaller than what you normally wear because it truly down run large. The length was perfect and I even wore heels with it. This is a fun dress that won't disappoint when you're sick and tired of your old wardrobe!

Perfect dress for a night out in Vegas!!

Size worn: 14
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Date
This dress is great! The material is thick so it doesn't show all the flaws. It was a little baggy around my back, above my back (but I do have a booty and dresses sometimes gap there). I wish I had also ordered the 12 just to see how it fit (might have been too short or tight in other places). The dress is stretching and super comfortable. I had to wear a strapless bra with it. Also, I wore silver accessories (no necklace - just bangles and earrings). I'm going to say this again, it was soooo comfortable! I would rent again and get the 12 as a backup size just to see how it fits!

Sexy and comfy

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
The dress weas so pretty and flattering. It was very stretchy which made it very forgiving. In fitted dresses I usually wear a 14 and a 12 in the stretchy dresses. I could have worn a 10 in this dress (not ordered) because it was loose in places. I have a large bust so I am thankful that I didn't run into any issues with fitting the bust. I loved the neckline (strapless bra needed). I would rent this dress again for sure.

Stunning dress. A show stopper!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
The dress is really comfortable and runs a little big. That said, it is short!! I'm 5-11 and was concerned about the length but everyone said it looked great. The lace panel in the front seemed a little shorter or less stretched out than the rest of the dress but that is nitpicking. It was a fun dress to wear.

Beautiful dress for an end of the summer wedding.

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
This dress ran just a tad big but very comfortable. I ordered a 4 and a 6 and choose the 4. I probably could have used a 2 but would of been a little snug. A strapless bra is a must with this dress. I would recommend this dress for a full night of dancing. I danced all night in comfort. Thank you RTR. I will see you in two weeks for my birthday celebration!

Runs so ridiculously big but it's a nice dress

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
Okay so the dress itself really deserves 5 stars. Great material and it's flattering. You can tell it's expensive. It runs SO large. It was big on me but it was my own fault cause I didn't listen to the reviews and size down. My true size is a 6 but honestly I probably should have worn a 2. The dress was not fitted at all but I just made it work. With that said I'm not sure if the dress is oddly shaped and if you have no hips then it will never look right, or if the dress itself just runs large, or if people before me stretched it out. Either way it ended up being kind of a flowy dress on me but it still worked.

Great dress for work Xmas party. Runs large but very comfortable and easy!

Size worn: 4
Rented for: Party
Based on other peoples reviews I ordered the 4 and 2 even though my normal size is a 6. The two fit well throughout the body but the top/arms were too tight so I went with the 4. Very comfortable dress. Wore with tights although it was just borderline being slightly too short for a work Christmas party. Would rent again.

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
This dress runs a little large, as I haven't worn a size 0 in several years, but I also tried on the size 2, and it was all-around too big. The quality of the fabric is excellent, and it flatters multiple body types. If you know you're going to be dancing all night, be aware that this dress is pretty short. I wore it to a Christmas party, and it was perfect. Overall, I loved wearing it and had another great experience with RTR!

I loved this dress! the dresses I ordered did not fit so I contacted Customer Service and quickly went through to see what dresses were available- I found this one and didn't give it much thought- gave it a shot. Well, it arrived and now its one of my favorite dresses from RTR and I will definitely be ordering it a 2nd time. The fabric is thick and good quality- its very flattering, kinda short for me (i'm 5'6) but nothing inappropriate. Reviews said it ran big so I got a 4 and a 6 (usually get a 6 and a 8). The 4 was SNUG and I wore the 6. I'm wondering if I could have even gotten a 8 but that might have been too big. I highly recommend this dress! Adding it to my favorites!

Had the 6 and 8 which pretty much fit the same so its a matter of "snug" preference. Not a fan of Spanx so wore the 8. Material was stretchy but not loose. Hugged body. Wore a strapless bra. I felt pretty and sexy in it. Very comfortable. Would rent again.

Could be a homerun for someone else, I didn't fall in love. Runs big!

Size worn: 8
Rented for: Party
I rented this dress for New Years Eve. It ran very large, and I didn't exactly love the material. I felt that the dress was fitted in the hips and baggy in the waist, and wasn't quite as flattering as I would have liked. I felt a little uncomfortable with the "armpit fat" that seemed to look worse than usual in this dress. I think if I had gotten this dress one size smaller I would have been more happy with the way it looked. Length was great, I still got a lot if compliments on this dress even though I wasn't completely comfortable in it.
