Loved this, but size down! It's very versatile and could be worn to work then to an event. Dress is up with a great necklace!

I loved this dress! It is very versatile and fits well. I wore this dress to a fashion show. It was stylish and very comfortable. I usually wear size 8 or medium and was able to wear the size 6. It fit perfect.

This dress definitely runs large. I really needed a size 0 when I typically wear a size 2 or 4. It's easy to wear and easy to accessorize and create different looks.

I loved that I fit right in with all the other young, non-mothers who are usually the most stylish!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
I really loved this dress! I am most definitely not as skinny as the model, but it looked VERY similar on me. The key is the loose-fitting dropped-waist. Very flattering. I typically wear an 8, but the only sizes available were 4 and 10. The 4 fit very well, so that is an idea of how large the dress runs. Also, there are pockets, which I didn't see in the description! Under the pleats at the drop-waist seam. SO cute. I dressed it up with silver shoes for a wedding in the city. Excellent dress, enjoy!

rented this dress for a photo shoot - we went with a 20's flapper look with finger waves and all, however not one review seems to mention that this dress is COMPLETELY SEE THROUGH! the front panel is double layered however the back is completely sheer.

Cute, but missing the lining

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I ordered two sizes, and true to the below reviews, needed to wear the smaller size. However, I realized that the larger size had a slip attached inside (keeping it from being see through) and the smaller size was missing this part of the dress...so before my event I had to spend my afternoon finding a black slip to wear underneath instead of getting a pedicure :-( I like RTR, but they should double check to make sure that the dresses are not missing critical parts!

Cute - it is see-thru

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I am well-endowed in the chest area and although the 10 fit throughout the body of the dress, it was still a little snug up top, so a 12 worked perfectly and the dress flowed beautifully. The dress is completely see through and the slip was a little worn, so be sure to have a black dress length slip on hand.

This dress is perfect if you are looking for something a bit more casual. It runs big and is on the shorter side, so order a size down! Perfect for any time of the year.

The dress is a loose fit, so go down a size. Also, it's a little sheer, so wear a nude or black bra. Love it though! So classy

very flattering, cute dress for work

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Other
I rented this for a casual afternoon work event - wore with black tights and booties and a large assortment of bangles. It was simple enough that I could dress it up without going too overboard. The fit was great (I am very small on the waist but large hips) and well tailored - the material is not stretchy at all so it kept its intended shape beautifully

Sassy and confident.

Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I usually wear a 4 but all they had last minute was a 2 and 6. The 2 was fine-- but I bet the 4 would have been perfect. The dress is beautiful but delicate and my friend said it looked like something I would own-- it was sad to send back to RTR!

Always deliver to work if you can

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This dress was stolen off my porch in Park Slope, NY so if you see the 2 or 4 in a consignment store in Booklyn...buy it back for RtR. They were super nice and even refunded me. Always have your package delivered to work if you're not home to get it. Sigh.

I was given a credit for the dress since I did not like how it looked on

Size worn: NONE
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
The dress does not look great on a petite frame and I ended up not wearing it for the party I was going to. I was given a credit which I used for another rental.
