Fantastic and Fun

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I chose this dress months before the yearly Children's Miracle Network Gala and unfortunately, I was called the day before informing me the size I had ordered (2) was not available. I ended wearing the size 4, but it ran a little big in the chest and waist. Which was a bummer. I think this dress would have looked awesome if I would have got my correct size. Overall, it is a great dress and I received a lot of complements on the style and the back!

I ended up sending back - way too short!

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size

The dress was flattering enough, but the top was a bit big in the arm area. The dress almost looked like a nightie is was so short - inappropriately short for a wedding.

If you're feeling a bit daring this is the perfect going out dress for you!!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I would say this dress fit true to size, however it was much shorter than I had anticipated. It still made for a fun dress to go out and hit the town in. There are multiple textures throughout this dress that make it so fun to wear! The flouncy pleated skirt, and the shiny animal skin texture on the bodice give this dress its bit of edge. My friends were raving about this dress and the neat back all night long!

Bought this dress from RTR and it's in mint condition. Love the fit. It's not too short on me since I'm a bit shorter anyhow.

True to size. Short, but not too short if you wear a pair of boy shorts underneath. Lots of compliments. Loved it.

Fun party dress and easy process with RTR!

This dress was VERY SHORT on me, and I'm only 5'. The waist band was also a bit tight for me. However I like that I could wear it with a regular bra.

The dress ran very very small, my measurements perfectly fit an 8 and even the 12 didn't fit.

Very short, and sexy. Adult events only I'd say. My photo is unzipped in the back, VERY SHORT.

Great dress. Wore it to homecoming dance.

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
It's kind of short but with volleyball shorts underneath, it was fine - not self-conscious. Usually a 2, but because I'm straight and the dress has a waist, I went with the 4.

too short, and I love short.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
My torso must run shorter than most because I could not wear a normal bra with this dress. I am 5'9" and LOVE showing off my legs and this dress was too short for even me. Would recommend for a much more petite girl.

Really great fit! Comfortable and easy!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Dress fits really nicely in the bust. Possibly get a size smaller so you don't need to wear a bra, as any strapless bra I had showed in the back. Dress is short, but not too short. I wore with tights, but I think it looks better without. Also, a big fun necklace is the way to go. Without any jewelry, it leaves something to be desired.

Great dress for night out at the club!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I loved how this dress looked, it was short, but I wanted it to be short, and it definitely wasn't shorter than most other party dresses that I wear. It showed off my cleavage nicely, maybe too nicely, but I enjoyed it. I don't usually wear dresses that show off my back but I felt sexy in this one and loved how it looked!

Very Fun Dress Perfect for Bachelorette

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I wore this dress for my Bachelorette party in Atlantic City. It was absolutely perfect, I got tons of compliments. The dress was fun and flirty. It is form fitting at the top and has enough support that I didn't need to wear a bra either. The flowy bottom made dancing fun. It was a little shorter than I'd normally wear but I wore black tights with it and that looked perfect and made me more comfortable. I would rent this designer again and maybe even the dress if the occasion is right!

Perfect dress, perfect night, perfect customer service. Thanks RTR!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
The dress fit great; I got a 10 and a 12. I wore the 10 because it had a nicer fit to it and it wasn't too baggy in the top. I didn't wear a bra with it-I wore the NuBra (chicken cutlets) instead and it filled out nicely. Overall a great dress and I was so sad to return it!

Way too short for tall girls

I was too tall for this dress (and have too large of a chest) but I'm sure it would be great for shorter girls with smaller chests!

I ordered an 8 and a 10 and wore the 8. It was a little tight on my chest so I had to wear it without a bra. It was the perfect length

A tad too short!!

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
I rented this dress for a girl's trip to Vegas. It's not the best dress I've rented from RTR, but it was the only one that worked out of the three I ordered, so I wore it anyway. I like the back and the detailing on top, but the dress was way too short on me. I'm only 5'6" and it just barely covered my behind, which made for a pretty uncomfortable night. I also think it runs a week bit small. I'm usually a 10 or 12 and ended up wearing the 12, but I really had to suck it in to get it zipped. Cute dress, but not for average height or curvy girls!

I ordered this as a backup for a wedding and didn't end up wearing it but would definitely rent for something else again. The fit was perfect and it wasn't too short on my 5'2" frame. The back is super cute and would be great for a girls' night out or a date night!

Reliable black dress. Not a stunner but the details (fabric, cut) make it more unique than your basic LBD.

Top fit great- very snug, love the cut-out in the back. Quite short though! Was perfect for NYE and Vegas- can't wear it for anything else though
