This dress makes your body look fantastic! Didn't have to worry about anything being out of place or looking awkward.

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
The best thing about this dress is the color! Among all of the black, grey and white dresses, I felt like mine really stood out. The simple construction of the dress is also very beautiful and regal. Definitely a great dress for formal affairs and parties as you can dress it up or dress it down. I don't know if the dress is purposefully very tight, but it was on me. I ordered sizes 2 and 4, I am usually a 4 but this 4 was very tight around the waist and chest. I would suggest ordering both your usual size and the size up. This dress is probably best for cup sizes A-C, the bust of the dress is pretty small. The chiffon is also pretty delicate, so take care. Overall, I absolutely loved this dress! It looks as good on as it does in the photo.

This dress is supremely elegant--I felt like a 60s movie star a al Grace Kelly! It does run tight--especially in the waist--but I didn't find that I needed to size up. I'm a small size 2, and I was able to wear the 2 with the dress fitting tightly, but in a super flattering way.

I walked into the wedding reception and my boyfriend stopped talking mid-sentence to tell me how great I looked.

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I LOVE this dress. The color is a gorgeous raspberry. It's light and has great movement. Everyone complimented me on the dress. I felt absolutely beautiful. I hugged the envelope the whole walk to the mailbox and really didn't want to send it back! It does run a little small. I probably could have zipped up the smaller size, but it wasn't worth the effort. It runs very narrow in the ribcage area (at least that's where I struggled with the zipper on the smaller size). The larger size fit very well and zipped easily. The bust area was a little roomy, but I don't think it was noticeable (and most dresses are a little roomy on me!). I'm short, so the dress hit below my knees. But I don't think that detracted from the dress at all.

Classy and elegant!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
First, I will say I had a very hard time putting this dress back in the mail this morning! The bodice is very tight, I was glad I listened to other reviewers and ordered the next size up. There truly is no give to the fabric, so making the size 8 work was not happening! The good news is the free-flowing skirt was perfect and beautiful for the dance floor. I think this dress works very well on ladies with curves, and may help create some curves for those needing a boost. The bust was a little roomy, so I wore a strapless bra to improve the fit, although I will note a bra is definitely not necessary. I wore this with strappy pewter heels and faux-vintage bracelets and felt it was a timeless look. I received many compliments!

Stunning dress

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this dress for a black tie optional wedding. The picture does not do it justice - the color and fabric are amazing. The bodice is very structured and does not require a bra. However, this is also because the ribcage on the dress runs VERY small. I hardly ever wear a 6 and thank goodness ordered it as my back up size, because even the 6 was very tight in the rib area. This also results in the dress looking not so flattering in the front, but making you look very thin from the side. Overall, one of the prettiest dresses I have ever seen, let alone worn.

Romantic and classy

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I rented this as a last-minute backup when my original choice became unavailable. I was a little unsure about it, even after first trying it on when it arrived, because it just didn't seem very special. But once I got totally dressed with makeup and jewelry, I loved it. It has a very romantic vibe and is extremely classy. I thought the top might be a little weird (it seems like it is cutting into the model's armpits) but it was perfect on me. I would say the 2 fits like a typical 0 and has no stretch, it's quite fitted around the ribcage. Wearing waist-smoothing shapewear also helped everything fit properly.

Gorgeous Dress!

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I rented this for a party - actually, it was my back-up dress because the alternate size in the dress I originally rented became unavailable at the last minute. I had read other reviews on this dress about the top running small and not having any "give" and they were correct. I normally wear a size 2 or 4 and was unable to get the 4 zipped. I would definitely recommend going a size above what you normally wear, particularly if larger in the top/bust area. It is a beautiful dress, just didn't work for me.

Gorgeous, but runs tight

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
The dress is very nice, the color is more of a raspberry than red though. I received quite a few compliments on it! I couldn't get the straps to look right on me (they aren't adjustable at all, and kept falling down), so I just tucked them into the dress. The bodice of the dress was tight enough, it wasn't going anywhere. I just barely fit into my usual size, so ordering a larger backup is definitely recommended!

I have a large chest but small frame and this dress so still too tight to zip - even a size up from normal. Its a shame since it would have been such a sexy dress. Better for smaller chested women.

Precious dress, but too tight up top for me

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Vacation
This is a cute dress, it reminded me of a ballerina. However it doesn't have any "give" to it. I ordered both the 8 and the 10. I barely managed to get the 10 zipped, but upon doing so found that the top was just too tight to wear. It would probably be better for a different body type.

I loved the fit and flare of this dress. I have a small ribcage, which is a plus with this one. I did not wear the straps up because I didn't like the look of the dress with them.

Elegant and classy

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Date
This is a lovely dress - elegant and classy. But I had to go up two sizes and was VERY grateful for the reviews that noted this if you have a big ribcage, which I do. I'm normally a size 4 but could barely get the 8 done up. Once I got it on, however, it is light, flowy and elegant - a dream of a dress; very sophisticated.

Beautiful statement dress!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I wore this to a holiday party with nude pumps and sparkly earrings. It was absolutely lovely...except I couldn't breathe! The boning was very constrictive and I thought I had ordered a size up (I'm a 34C and wore a size 2 but thought I had ordered a size 4 for backup). Wish I had! That being said, it was worth feeling Victorian for a night. Lots of compliments and it was fun to experiment with a color I normally wouldn't wear. The boning was sticking out on the right chest into my skin - the RTR crew offered me 50% off the rental. A fair deal but I do hope they repair or replace the dress before someone else suffers it's beauty!

Received TONS of complements on the dress. Was absolutely perfect for a holiday party, but beware, this dress runs EXTREMELY small. I'm a true 6 and the 8 hardly fit. Definitely recommend going a size (or two!) up.

I ordered this in my regular size and one size larger based on others' comments. The larger size fit on top but it was very unflattering on my bottom half. I ended up wearing the back-up dress even though it's a pretty dress.

This was my first RTR dress and it was just great. The color was bold but not flashy, and the length was just right with my height. Though I usually wear a size 6, I ordered an 8 as my backup size, and boy was I glad I did. The 6 wouldn't even close on my ribcage, but the 8 fit perfectly.

Sensational Knockout Dress

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
As described by many others, the corset top is snug. I wore my normal size dress (8) and was able to zip it fine. The straps give the dress a perfect neckline flare....so some great earrings, bracelet and shoes will do. The dress is definitely a raspberry with a lighter pink underlayer ( so less red than the picture appears), but still just as fabulous. Many compliments on style and slimming appearance while wearing. Would love to have in my closet for numerous occasions to come. Must Try!

Size up for your first size, and go up two sizes for your backup!

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I usually wear a 6 or an 8 in dresses--I would say a six 2/3 of the time, an eight 1/3 of the time. I ordered the 6 and the 8, but due to a snafu, only got the 8. At first, I didn't even think I was going to be able to zip it up. (1) The dress has a very shoddy zipper (I had trouble zipping it even while off), (2) there is absolutely no stretch to the fabric, which is like a corset with boning, and (3) as everyone else has mentioned, it runs very small! With the help of not one, but two other people, I got it zipped-- one held the fabric closed as the other one zipped it up little by little. It took about ten minutes. I would not have bee able to zip this bad boy up myself. And as you can imagine, it was very tight. As my friend said, "It doesn't actually look too bad, but you can tell it's tight and uncomfortable and you're not even sitting down yet." I think I would have needed a 10 in this dress. (The picture included is actually with it not zipped up all the way--I only took snapchats when it was fully zipped and didn't save any pictures, and no way was I going through the ordeal of getting it zipped again to get a picture) I was disappointed in the straps, which is what originally attracted me to this dress. But to be fair, because I didn't end up wearing this dress, I didn't mess with them much. They were very loose, so that they kind of bunched up in a weird way. I think you could have taped them to be shorter, and maybe alleviated this problem a bit, but when you were dancing and etc I think the straps would still bunch up all over the place, even if taped. I've included a picture so you can see what I mean--what happens to the straps when you're taking a selfie so you're shoulders aren't straight back.

Gorgeous dress, but odd fit.

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
The color of this dress is stunning -- a very deep raspberry. The fabric and design is gorgeous as well...my husband said I looked like a princess. I received compliments on it all night long. The cons: order at least one size up, as this dress has absolutely no give. I'm normally an 8, and the 10 was too small, so I went with the 12. However, the bust was way too big (and I have a sizeable chest), so I was very self-conscious about preventing my boobs from falling out. And the straps -- forget it. They just don't lay well, mostly due to the top being too big.
