I think I'm in LOVE!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This dress just arrived and I'm wearing it to my husband's holiday party tonight. It fits PERFECTLY! I am usually between an 8 and a 10 and the 8 is perfection. It below my knee and while it highlights my figure, it isn't clingy! I'm going to be able to dance all night in this thing! It's very classy, glamorous feeling and to top it all off it has the tags on it!!! I'm going to be heartbroken to ship this back tomorrow!!! Pic to come!

Decent fit but not ideal

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I'm 5'7 and 155 lbs. I ordered the 10 and the 12. The 10 was snug in the bust area (I"m a 36C), but not as fitted thru the waist/hips as it looks on the model. I got alot of complients and it was comfortable..but I don't think I"d rent this one again.

Liked very much

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I very much enjoyed wearing this dress to a black tie wedding. The fit was true to size. As a C cup the bust was a bit tight on the size 2, but the rest of the dress fit better than the size 4. The size 4 was a bit baggy for me. The dress is "sheath-like" in my opinion and would have looked better on me if it were more fitted at my natural waistline. That being said, I very, very much enjoyed wearing this dress. I felt glamorous and was sad to send it back.

Great dress

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
This was a great dress, and I rented it to wear to NYE, however, the sequins are huge, and not round. You cannot tell this from the picture, and I was a little disappointed about that. The dress was very light, and ran a little big. I rented the size 2 and backup size 4, but the 2 was probably a size too big. I am normally between a 2 and 4 depending on the designer. The customer service and delivery of the items were fantastic. I am glad that I ended up renting two dresses, and ended up wearing my "backup" dress to NYE! I will definitely rent again!

fun dress, a little long

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
Loved this dress, definitely got people to turn their heads! I wore it for a birthday party out in the city and it was a great fit. Comfortable for the evening and it was a very true fit for the size, however it was longer on me than pictured (I'm 5'4" and I was wearing 3 in heels) Only down side was the that top where the plastick-y rubber band to hold it up, kept flipping over exposing it.

What a Relief - it's PERFECT!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
My first attempt at ordering from RTR. I was worried about the fit. The description said that maybe I'd need to order up a size due to tight bust (I'm usually a 10). I'm a 34D and size 10 was perfect. The bust fit wonderfully as did the rest of the dress. I'm 6'0" and it hit a little below my knee cap. The dress arrived yesterday, my event is tomorrow - now I can relax and know that I will look great! I only wish that I could order a long gown but based on my conversations with Fit Specialist, they will all be too short. Sigh. ....Maybe there could be a FEW options for me on RTR sometime??!! POST EVENT REVIEW*** The dress wore well except that it slid around from center a bit all evening. I had to discreetly twist it back. Something I also have never seen before so forgive me if I'm naive, but there was a super long second side zipper inside the dress - I thought it must be a spare if the other one broker or something. Duh. I finally figured out that it was there to cinch in the under-the-bust area tighter, which made a nice difference in the fit of the chest area.

Really cute, not form fitting

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress runs just a bit large. I normally wear a size 4, and I did have to keep pulling it up from the top (the fashion tape didn't work too well). It is not form fitting, but fits more like a tube, so keep that in mind. The sequins are larger and oval shaped. The fabric is substantial and comfortable. I did get a lot of compliments on it, and I felt great wearing it.

I rented this dress for my Birthday celebration and it dd a great job. Though it is longer than it is shown on the model and the length is a bit awkward, overall it is a gorgeous dress and I did get many compliments on it. It brings up party mood around, that's for sure!!

I rented this dress for a black tie optional event last night. It definitely helped the fit to use the internal zipper plus the outer zipper. I noticed that it was a little difficult to walk in because it doesn't have a slit. I enjoyed wearing this dress.

typically stay away from sequins as they add thickness to your body and can be heavy. this dress was perfect. light and a great fit. perfect length for a work function.

Great for a semi formal affair

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress fit great. I wore it for a Hospital Gala that I chaired. I loved the length as it was a little more sophisticated than other cocktail dresses I have worn. The length was great on me as I am 5'10" may look too long if you're shorter than 5'7". Runs true to size and has pleanty of stretch. Overall, very satisfied yet again.

I wore this to a formal business dinner in NYC. I had never tried it on right after I got it. Getting ready I said a prayer and put it on. It fit like a glove!!! I got so many compliments!

Gorgeous, but scratchy sequins

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I loved the easy fit of this dress (it fits like a loose column, and I went up a size to avoid clinginess) and the sequins are really pretty. However, I ended up with scratches under both arms from the sequins - painful!

Careful if full busted!

Overall fit: True to Size

Really needed 4 on top and 2 below. The chest runs small so if you are larger on top size up. Also, the sequence under the arms starts to rub after a while. Have to say though lots of compliments throughout the night.

The dress was fun and perfect for awards dinner.

It is definitely a column dress. I got size 6 as my back up size and it was more fitted, but not the look I think the dress is meant to be. The dress stayed in place and was loose in the midsection. I would definitely recommend this dress for a special event. If you are looking for a fitted throughout look, go down a size.

This dress was a no-go

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
I rented the size 6 and 8 for a wedding. I tried the 6 on... the fit was horrible. fit nicely in the bust and hips but was baggy (not loose... baggy) in the waist. My fiance took one look and said "That dress is too big". I even tried with a strapless push up bra to try and lift it...? Not good. HOWEVER- the customer service at RTR is amazing. I called at 7:30pm, waited on hold for a while and when they answered at 8:15 (after hours, per the website) they did an exchange for me and are having it sent directly to my hotel (since it was too late to have it sent to my home). To be continued....

NYE Black Tie Affair

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This was definitely what I was looking for for a NYE Party! The length was perfect (right above the knee) and went perfectly with silver accessories to bring out the sparkle within the sequins. Was snug around the bust line, but had an overall comfortable and flattering fit.
