It was a very nice dress and would have worked for the Black Tie Optional wedding.
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
Unfortunately, while the rib cage and shoulder straps fit, the chest area was too large for me. It would have taken some very strong double stick tape to keep it from puckering out at the side and some pinning even. This dress would be good for someone who has small waist but larger boobs.

Tons of compliments. Could have worn 6 or 8 but 8 fit better thru hips. Wore without a bra, which I normally don't do, but substantial fabric on top made me feel comfortable.

Beautiful dress!
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I loved the dress, it fit a little small in the "waist" - the ribbon waist fell around my rib cage and it was a little uncomfortable. I don't have a long torso, so I'm unsure why it fit oddly. Overall good, just would have preferred to know that.

Loved the service but the dress just did not fit me. I'm pretty tall and it was wayyy too short. I also have small boobs so the top part was really loose in the size that fit me in the waist. Regardless I could have never worn it because it was much too short

I wore this dress to my prom and absolutely LOVED it! People are not exaggerating when they say it has a small waist, though. I ended up wearing an 8 just so it would fit on my waist and I often wear a 4 in dresses.

I rented this dress for my school's winter formal. The fit of the dress was wonderful. The length was just right. The only problem I had with the dress was that since I am small chested, I had to use a lot of fashion tape to hold the front and sides of the dress up.

I rented two dresses to choose from for a wedding a few weeks ago; I'm glad I got another dress! This dress is really pretty, but it doesn't fit well, unfortunately. I think it is for taller girls ;) Wish it would have fit! LOVED my other dress though!

Pretty Dress, Sizing is Hard
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I rented 3 dresses because it was my first time so I was unsure about how it would all work/fit. I rented this dress but ended up not picking it. It is a beautiful dress! The fit, on me was tricky though. The waist bad has zero give and hit me a little above my natural waist. I usually wear a size 4/6 in dresses but i had to move up to an 8 for this dress. I ran into trouble with the fit on my chest. I am 34C and it was loose. You cant wear a normal bra so I would have to wear the stick on bra and use fashion tape as well. However, the length is great as well as the fabric. Nice and light. If it fit better it would have been my first choice!

The back saves the dress
Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I dont' think this dress photographs very well and I was a bit underwhelmed by it, but it was my only choice, so I made it work. The front of the dress is... meh. It does have pockets, which are pretty fun. The back of this dress saves it. The open back is flattering and makes this a much more interesting choice. A statement necklace is a must. As mentioned, the dress is quite unforgiving around the ribcage. The 2 was unavailable so I took a risk and ordered the 0, which I ended up wearing. It certainly did not leave much room for deep breaths and I have a small rib cage. If you have a wide ribcage, definitely order up a size.

I hace a smaller cup size than most, so the side of the dress without the strap needed to be taped down to my chest. It was a little short, and not very flattering

I rented this dress to wear on my birthday. It was very nice, except they didn't send double sided tape, and my bra kept showing. Other than that, it was a great experience and I will definitely rent again! It was very comfortable, but fit a lot longer on me than the model!

I ended up not wearing this dress although it was very cute, the waist line around to the open back has no give whats so ever so every time you moved in it, everyone else could tell too. It just squeezed too much on that back line that I didnt feel comfortable enough to wear it all night.

I wore this for a New Year's eve party I hosted. I received so many compliments. I agree with the other review on that the dress has no give (good thing I ordered a size up!). The back is sexy but you have to be careful with the sides. I had to use some fashion tape to prevent any mishaps during the night. Overall I loved the look of the dress.

Looks better on the model.
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Small

This dress was my original pick for New Years. However my first order from RTR got caught up in the snow storm so it did not get delivered on time. RTR send me a back up dress and my original dress in a size 4 which was too small around the bust. In real person the dress looks more for a summer party rather than a New Year Event. The fabric is very light and the back is amazing , it was just to small. If you are bigger up top I would recommend going up a size. Other than that it was a great dress !

Beautiful color and material!
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Other
Unfortunately, I couldn't wear this dress for the reason I rented it, but I'm reviewing it for the benefit of others. The dress fit perfectly, except that the top was too big, and the back was too low to wear a bra. I don't have a tiny chest, but the top was too big and left gaps on either side so if I moved too much I would pop out. If I had the time to pin it, it would have been fine. However, this dress is really beautiful and could be worn for a lot of different events. It is a gorgeous deep blue color and even at 5' 2" it was about 3" above the knee. It is both chic and fashionable and was a real bummer that I couldn't wear it.

This dress was beautiful, but I am rather large chested for my body and did not feel secure in this dress wearing a sticky bra. I didn't wear it for fear of wardrobe malfunction, but it would probably work well for smaller chested ladies.

This dress runs true to size/small. If you wear a 4, get an extra 6, not a 2!

The waist band on this is snug, which could turn into a con if you ordered your regular size & a size down, like I had. Another thing I would note about this dress is I did not like the clear buttons on the straps. I also wish the top were tighter-fitting. All around--the proportions were a bit odd. Have to admit it's a cute style though. Definitely worth a shot, provided you order the right size.

I loved this dress and was so happy I rented it. The back is so sexy, the material is great, the color is beautiful, and it is the perfect length. I am fairly short (5'3") and it hit a couple inches above my knees - it showed a little leg, but was definitely not too short on me. The part just under the bust fit snugly but comfortably on me - I have about a 34" ribcage. However, the actual bust was large on me. This was easily fixable with a little bit of fashion tape on either side. I wore a statement necklace with it, like it's pictured, and got so many compliments. Great dress!!

Overall fit: True to Size

I rented this dress for a friend's wedding. It was June in the south, so something shorter and not too heavy was definitely necessary. This dress was perfect for the occasion and a big hit with my friends. The top potion did run a bit big, but I fixed that with some 2-sided fashion tape and was good to go.
