The cutouts were classy, but playful
Loved this dress because it was bright and cheerful. I'm tall, but it wasn't too short

The pattern and fabric were great for the venue - an old school club in London. Fun cutouts!
Fit was flattering and stood up to the evening (sitting for dinner, dancing, etc). It has pockets too!

Fun night at a beachside wedding in a seriously fun dress
This dress was fabulous, easy and comfortable. My first choice wasn't available, so I scrambled for a backup and got this one. I'm so glad I did! I wore a size 6, and the fit was really great aside from perhaps a bit too much room in the chest area, but that's par for the course for me. It showed up without a single wrinkle. This was my first attempt at cutouts, and they are well-placed and not too scandalous. If your bra band is high enough, it won't show there -- but the shoulders are cut in a way that your shoulder straps show in the back despite bra keeps. That's really my only complaint. I ended up going braless so I wouldn't have to mess with my strapless all night. It wasn't an issue. The fabric is thick and doesn't really have much give, but it wasn't too stuffy for the Florida beach wedding I wore it to. There's a little crinoline for just a hint of poof, and the pockets are delightful. The color is a bit more fuchsia and less red than the picture here. Overall, got tons of compliments, felt fun and sassy, and I miss it already!

Classic dress with a little fun
this dress fits very true to size. I have a fairly small waist and narrow shoulders and it was perfect. Lots of compliments on the style and the lovely color. The fabric has a nice weight and holds shape well. The cut-out area is not risqué at all...Definitely recommend for an elegant party or wedding.

Total bummer!
This rental was the first disappointing experience I've had with RTR. I got the dress in 2 sizes, which was great, but the problem was the dress wasn't proportional! Basically, the bottom portion - the waistband - was too tight, and the top was too loose. I have a pretty big chest, so I thought this was so strange! I tried the bigger size and it was just worse because the bottom portion fit, but the top was even bigger than the other size. I ended up having to return it last minute and wear something else. I was so disappointed because it's so cute on the model and on the hanger... The great news is I love RTR's return policy - easy peasy! Makes it low-risk to rent this sort of thing! Now I have a huge credit to play with next time :)

Stylist review!
This Theia dress was so flirty! The colors are gorgeous in person, and the cutouts and high neckline feel modern, contrasting with the classic floral pattern. The fabric is so much prettier in person- photos really don't do it justice! It is a thicker fabric with a full skirt, and there is no stretch. This dress would be very flattering on a pear shape, but would look great on most other body types as well! There is ample room in the bust for larger cup sizes, but if you have a wide rib cage like me, definitely size up. I would have preferred the 10 in this style, but I still loved it!

This dress was sassy and fun!
Absolutely love love love this dress! At first I was concerned that the cutouts would show more skin than I was comfortable with, but after trying it on I could see that that was not the case at all. I loved the color, print, and the skirt had just the right amount of flare. I received so many compliments on the dress and can't wait to rent it again! I usually wear a size 6 or 8. I went with the 8 for this dress - it felt a little tight around where the cutouts are in the 6.

LOVE!!! It was a little snug in the middle, but it looked great and I got tons of compliments.
This dress shows just enough skin for it to be interesting, but not so much that I felt uncomfortable wearing it in the church. It's really different and beautiful. I usually wear an 8, but I'm tall and broad and this was a bit tight in the middle. I might have been more comfortable in a 10, but the 8 worked fine.

Beautiful dress, really gorgeous quality fabric. The dress fit but the fabric had no give and mashed my chest like a sports bra. It would be super lovely on someone with slightly smaller breasts. Really, really gorgeous

Beautiful, comfortable dress for a summer wedding.
The color of this dress is quite vibrant, a beautiful mix of pinks and oranges. The material is a thicker brocade material, so it doesn't wrinkle much. The cutouts are edgy, but not inappropriate and you can still wear a bra with the dress. There is a little bit of tulle underneath which helps the dress keep shape. The only con really is that the top part was a little looser than I would have liked and there could have been a little less tulle. The pockets are a major plus!

Fab pink cutout dress made me go way out of my comfy zone and I loved it! Pockets!!
I went to the SOHO RTR showroom and when the stylist brought this out, I baulked. Cutouts?? I'm not a size 0 and thought oh no. But girls with curves actually look better in cutouts I found out! The fabric is a bright pink without being garish. I loved the color and the fact it was something I would never ever wear normally. I will say if I wasn't standing straight or sitting, you could see a line develop in the cutout of my skin. It's not a deal breaker but if you're at all body conscious, I would skip it. Me? I felt fab and had a great time. I did learn that a JCrew 8 is a RTR 12- just FYI.

Flattering and fun
Beautiful dress. The color and cut are flattering and the cut-outs are unexpected and fun while still refined. The skirt has tulle and was larger than expected/appeared in pictures. Decided to size up so the cut-out sections weren't too tight. Was very sad to return!

Stylish and Fun!
The 8 fit good in waist, a little extra room in chest. It tends to photograph red, but the dress is fuchsia (if that matters to you). I was very happy with this rental. Paired it with nude shoes, bronze purse, metallic bangles and bronze crystal earrings.

Great fabric and pretty color!
I first tried this dress on at the Georgetown location. As other reviewers said, the cut-outs were tasteful and didn't show too much. The fabric was thick and the color was absolutely vibrant; the skirt was full and the pockets were a genius touch! I usually wear an 8 but the dress was too tight in the bust. I went up to a 10 and, although it was slightly loose in the waist, was more comfortable in it. 4 stars because I was hoping the 8 would fit. But, perfect length and really fun for a wedding!

I could have used a size smaller. I was supposed to get a 10 but there must've been a mistake. It still fit though. I will be renting it again for another event!

Fun and flirty!
Loved this dress -- I found it in the store when I looking for a wedding. I ended up renting it for the rehearsal dinner. The deep reds and golds in the jacquard are perfect for any fall event. The cut-outs were flirty, but not overly showy. I wore a pair of J.Crew crystal earrings with black sheer tights/hose and black shoes. I wasn't sure how dressy the rehearsal dinner would be, but I think I would have felt perfectly dressed no matter what. Pockets are becoming a favorite detail in any dress, so they were nice, too. I wish I'd had a strapless bra -- the straps showed a bit (see the picture), despite snaps for the straps. It looked okay, but strapless would have looked more polished. In terms of size, the 4 was perfect -- however, I would order one size up from your normal size as a back up. There is no give to the material, so if you don't like anything tight around your waist or if you're busty, it would be nice to compare your normal size with one size roomier. All in all, another super-successful RTR experience.

Amazing customer service! Dress I chose wasn't available so they over nighted this dress to my hotel
Pros- Colors and pattern was beautiful! Looked luxurious and was well made. Was sexy and edgy while still being classy. I did not feel overexposed with the cutouts. They hit in al the right places! I highly recommend it for people with hourglass figures it really emphasizes your waist. Tons of compliments! Great for dancing! Pockets were a bonus to keep my cell on me at all times to take pictures. Cons- I am a larger C cup and it was still a bit large on top. It was nothing to bad I still wore it and would rent it again. It just did not sit flush with my skin. However if you are smaller busted size down for your backup. Recommend this dress dress if you are looking for something a little different. It is gorgeous, and you will feel so in it! I rented the earrings, ring, & bracelet as well.

I've never received so many compliments on a dress! I was sad to send it back.
The dress was fitted at the waist, but a little roomy on the top. I couldn't wear a bra with it because it was sticking out of the cut outs in the back, but a backless bra would be helpful if you are smaller-chested. The color of the dress is rich and beautiful! And I loved the pockets - the skirt was poofy enough so you couldn't see that I had had my phone and lipstick in them. Great for people like me with a smaller waist and wider hips!

It was so easy to choose a dress fro RTR. I lived every bit of the experience.
The dress was so pretty and far exceeded my expectations. It was revealing and classy at the same time. The fabric was beautiful, even better than the photos. It fit comfortably and the best part...it had pockets!!!! I absolutely loved everything about this dress.

This dress made me feel fashion forward and trendy while being comfortable
This dress fit true to size and I was comfortable all night. I did not have to wear a bra and wasn't concerned with undergarments whatsoever, a total plus! Also the fabric is beautiful in person, I don't normally wear reds and pinks but it wasn't too bright and it looks expensive. The cutouts were flattering and I got to feel "on trend" while not being body conscious. The skirt was a tad big because it has layers of tool underneath but I didn't mind it.

Perfect dress for a wedding.
I wore this dress to traditional Indian wedding. It was really fun to wear. I loved the cutouts. I have rented a lot of dresses on rtr, and my bf still says this is one of his favorites. The 0 and 2 both fit, but felt more comfortable in the 2 with the side cutouts. It was my first time in this designer and I would definitely rent more.

Loved loved loved this dress ... but too revealing for a family wedding
I rented this because I fell in love with the picture, and when I put it on I loved it even more. Made me feel pretty and sexy! But the cut outs ended up looking too large on my frame (i'm only 5'3) and I didn't think it was appropriate for a family wedding. Wore it all night to the grocery store instead oO

Sassy AND Sophisticated
This couldn't have been a more perfect dress. The cut outs are very flattering and just enough to make you feel sexy but not too much to feel overly exposed. The dress appeared more red on my screen but more pink in person - which I didn't mind. But if you are looking for something RED this may not be what you want.

RTR only had a size 0 available for my event - i squeezed into it! It fit, but a 2 would have been much more comfortable! I am 125 lbs. and 5'3". You can wear a normal razorback bra with it which is awesome.

Amazing - Wanted to keep this dress!
I wore this to a rehearsal dinner and it was a huge hit! I'm normally a little shy about things like cut-outs, but this dress was incredibly flattering. It was a little tight in the bust for me, but I was able to make it work with a nu-bra.

Easy to use the app and great recommendations from other renters
This was probably my favorite dress from RTR. I rent often and I have never received more compliments then I did for this beautiful dress. It was elegant and sexy at the same time. Very easy to dance in and had adorable pockets. It fit perfectly and I highly recommend this dress.

Beautiful and unique, but my normal size was too small
Fabric and colors were gorgeous, but I didn't listen to reviews and only got my normal size and a size down (since my waist is smaller and I didn't want it to be baggy). I could zip it up, but couldn't breathe it was so tight around my rib cage! DEFINITELY size up, wish I did and wish I could've worn it!

Theia makes a great dress! Absolutely loved this dress - felt trendy yet classy.
Fit is true to size to snug. The waist hugs you and at first I was self conscious of the cut outs and muffin top spillage, but it was a really nice fit. The color is great too, very vibrant.

Would have been fine wearing this dress if I hadn't like my alternative dress better.
I am normally a size 2 and the size 2 for this dress fit perfectly. The skirt has a petticoat and bit more flare than depicted. I was expecting more of a sheath cut at the bottom so I ended up going with the alternative sheath dress I rented.
