Rented this dress for dinner with my parents. Runs a size big and recommend ordering a size down. I wore the 0 and this does not come in a 00 so belted it to cinch in the waist. Plenty of room in the hip/thigh area. Best for pear/hourglass shapes. Would be so cute on a curvier figure.

STYLIST REVIEW!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Fantastic dress by Theory! Love this for during the day or could toss on with black tights and black booties for night. Would be great with a big necklace and fun bag. It runs slightly tight in the bust, I didn't feel as though I needed to wear a bra with the dress. Would size up if you are biggest int he bust.

A classy & comfortable dress

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Threw this in as a second style option, ended up wearing it instead because I loved it so much. Classy and comfortable, fit exactly as expected. Received tons of compliments and danced all night with no issues. The fabric is a bit thicker, so might not be best for summer events, but was fine for outdoor April wedding (in NC).

I have a small bust so this dress was perfect for me but for anyone who has a larger chest it might fit tight around the top. The stomach part was a bit looser then i had wanted it to be, so i put a yellow belt around it which gave it a bit more color. All in all it was a nice dress to wear to this birthday party. Wasn't to much just perfect!

Cute and fun dress!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This dress was really cute and perfect for a daytime event. The fabric was thicker than expected so I wouldn't wear it on a really hot day. I personally felt that it ran narrow in the hips and a little small in the bust so if you're curvier definitely size up for a backup size. The 6 fit me but was a little too tight in the hips which is why I sized up in this one.

I rented this dress for a rehearsal dinner and loved it. It fit really well, and looked great. I will say that the fabric is thicker than expected and would probably be better worn in the spring or fall when the weather is a bit cooler.

Love the black and white, really good fit. Go up a size if you have boobs or a wider waist or broader shoulders - it is very tailored fit. It fit me pretty perfect but is fitted. Short, I wore the 0 and it hit midthigh. Loved it, as I usually do.

I think I want to go out and find this dress and buy it so I can wear it all the time. I don't wear a lot of prints, but this one was fabulous. Fit was great and the dress was super cute. Runs a bit small, but not too bad. It may just be a bit shorter than I was expecting.

Wore this dress for a presentation at work and then again for a casual party. Great dress, although it is a bit small in the bust. If you have a large bust, this dress is not for you (unless you go up a size). Otherwise it's great. Wore it with a long sleeved shirt underneath for work and then with leggings for a party (it was really cold out).

I wore this dress for my engagement pictures in Philadelphia. It was still pretty chilly, so I paired it with sheer black stockings, black Mary Janes, pearl earrings, and a chunky pearl necklace. I also wore a little black trench in some of the pictures, but needed a few without the jacket! This was actually my backup dress in case it was still cold out. The other dress was great, I just would have been freezing! This was a great solution.

Flattering & fun, could be dressed up or down!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I absolutely loved this dress! It fit true to size. I got a size 2 and 4, and ended up wearing the size 4. Both sizes fit/could zip, but the 4 was much more comfortable because the material doesn't have any stretch. The 2 was pulling across my thighs/butt and flattening my chest, and the 4 fit perfectly. I was nervous about the length since I'm only 5'3 and was wearing this to an informal party at a college reunion, but it was the perfect length and could be dressed down with a colorful necklace and wedge sandals.

This dress was great for my engagement party and worked well with the Kate Spade necklace I rented with it. A great colorful statement necklace is just what this dress needs. The fabric is a nice thick texture that I think would make the dress great for fall too with tights and booties. Does run small so size up! I usually wear a 4 but went with the 6 which was still snug, but not too tight.

Comfortable and timeless.

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
This dress was rented for a conservative/traditional Catholic wedding. The length and neckline were perfect for this event. The dress did run slightly large. It was a little loose around the waist and bust (the usual problem for a pear shaped lady), but was perfect in the shoulders and hips. I did wear a bright necklace to make the dress a little more interesting.

Loved this dress... It was heavier than I expected but not to the point where it looked unflattering. I had a baby 5 months ago and I felt that it hid all stomach insecurities. I'd suggest a belt to give it a little more shape. Worn w tights and black heels.

This dress is adorable! I loved wearing it. The fit was a little funny, but I think it was only something only I noticed. I am broad across the shoulders and back. So my normal size 6 didn't fit because the top fit so snug. It's actually squishing my breasts a little. The waist then was a little bigger than I would have liked. But the dress is fun and unique and I would probably wear it again. I got a ton of compliments. Wore it with my own jewelry and peacock blue heels. So fun!!

Comfortable and versatile

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
The dress was perfect for a wedding I attended on a Friday night - I wasn't sure how formal or casual the event would be so the dress could play either way (it ended up being in a fancier setting than I expected but I still felt appropriately dressed). Material was nice and thick. I would suggest sizing down (unless you have broad shoulders) - I ended up wearing the back up size 2 instead of 4 and there was extra room in the back/shoulder area still but I easily hid that with my hair down. Also, super happy with RTR customer service on this order. I realized I had mixed up the delivery dates so the week before the event I emailed to change my entire order around and they were extremely responsive and helpful (and on a Saturday!). Essentially I was able to rent this dress 5 days before the event.

Overall fit: True to Size

This was a cute dress for daytime, fit true to size but there is no stretch so movement was somewhat limited however it wasn't an issue for me as I wasn't dancing or reaching or bending. I personally would not choose this for evening, it's a little lackluster and it feels too much like a daytime or work dress depending on how you style it. I paired with wedges and a statement necklace. Would be perfect for business with pumps and a blazer.

I didn't end up wearing the dress. I do not have much of a waist at all and in this style, the 4 was a little too tight and I felt stuffed into it. Since it was my backup dress, I didn't order another size. Lucky for all of us, it fit my best friend perfectly. She's very similar to me (as you can tell) but is about 1-2" taller, has a smaller waist and more of a bust. It fit her beautifully. The pattern was lovely, she wore it with black tights and black booties and pink earrings for a pop of color.

Tight on the top. I didn't realize the size 8 was out when I tried to order it as a backup. The size 8 probably would have been a better fit, but the size 6 worked out fine. Really cute dress. The material is nice and thick, which worked out well in November!

The dress was perfect for a professional setting. I wore it for a Holiday open house at my workplace and the dress was comfortable. The only downside was the sleeves dug into my arm/arm pit whenever I'd life my arms or extend them. 2 days later I have red marks!! The length was appropriate for the event and the pattern on the dress is very versatile.

I wore a jacket over it and it really completed the look. It's great for a dinner/date night.

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small

I rented this as a backup for Thanksgiving, but ended up wearing out for dinner with friends the next night. It is definitely not a Thanksgiving dress :) as it fits snug. I liked the thicker material for this time of year. The cut is really cute. My one "complaint" is that it fit snug around the hips ( I am curvy, but still it pulled a bit more than I would have liked). And I don't think I would have gone up a size. I'm between a 6 and 8 and wore the 8. But the 10 would have been too big I'm sure. This is probably better suited for stick/boyish figures. But if I had this hanging in my closet, I'd still wear it again.

The dress was way small. I wear a lot of Theory clothes, all size 2 but this one simply did not fit! Everything was tight for me. The dress is very structured and you have to be really skinny to wear. Not recommended for curvy women.

Probably meant for a smaller bust. The 10 was too big on me in the stomach but did fit my top better. I wore the 8 with a sports bra and it worked out.
