I am normally between a 4 and a 6 and this size 6 was a little big. I would recommend sizing down to get that slimming sheath effect. pretty yellow color and textured jacquard fabric. I would rent again!!

I am usually between a size 4 and 6 and went with the 6 in this one. It was a beautiful color and fit, I got a lot of compliments. The pouch was a little weird but it didn't bother me.

This dress was a replacement for a damaged dress and I was happily surprised. The 2 was a bit baggy in the stomach so I wore the 0 even though it was tighter in the hips. The fabric is a nice thick material with nice detailing. The front pocket was fun too. Wore with nude heels and regular underwear & bra.

Beautifully elegant dress

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
This dress runs big so I had to ask for a replacement size. I got the 4 at 1st thinking as a structured dress with no stretch I should size up, but that was not the case. The 2 fit perfectly. The pattern on the dress is so elegant and thick sort of reminds me of like couch or curtain fabric. Nice color too, you'll stand out. The zipper at the back has a cool fabric strip hanging from it to zip and unzip easier. The pockets are so cool!!!! The only negative I can say about this dress is that when you sit down, the pockets stick out a little bit like a pouch so you have to be aware to not look fat while sitting.

If you can ignore the kangaroo pouch - a classy and fun dress!

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
As other reviews mentioned, this dress has a strange hand warmer/kangaroo pouch in the front. I used double sided dress tape to keep it closed and it didn't bother me then. The dress pattern is rather busy so it hides the pocket seam a bit. The damask pattern could be classic in a boring way, but the figure hugging fit and fun color punch it up! The fabric is thicker so I felt like it hide any body imperfections and made me feel confident with how snugly it fit. The dress also has nice darting in the chest area to give it some more interest. Because the dress is snug in the hips I would suggest ordering a size up for your back up size!

My first wedding in Central Park!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small

The dress was lovely. I wanted something that would show off my figure, but in a classic way. The dress was a little tight around the middle, but overall quite comfy. I loved the little pocket in the front for my cell phone.

I received tons of compliments on this dress!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
I usually wear a 4, and read other reviews that the dress runs a tad large. I was very happy that I had ordered a 2 and 4. The 4 was a little large...mostly, it was a bit too long (I am 5'4"). The 2 was very fitted but flattering, and the odd pouch on the front stuck out a bit, so I taped the sides down with double sided fabric tape, and it looked fine. Honestly, if I owned this dress (which I wish I did!) I would have purchased a 4 and had it taken up a bit for a snug but slightly more comfortable fit. Overall, I was very pleased and would absolutely rent the dress all over again! It was perfect for the event (late afternoon Greek wedding)!

I really liked the color and material. I received lots of compliments.

I ended up wearing a smaller size than normal - the 2 over the 4. It wasn't great for dancing because the material doesn't have any stretch it in but it wasn't impossible either. It did come with a seam coming apart in the bust but luckily I had a mother on hand to sew it up and it was a quick fix.

Beautiful, expensive, looking fabric, perfect color for a spring or summer event

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
Wore this to my grad school graduation which also included my pinning ceremony in the morning so I was able to show it off as opposed to under my gown. Fit like a glove. Came to a perfect above the knee length on me. The color was beautiful for this time of year. Got a ton of compliments on it, of course I gave RTR the credit. Looks great with nude pumps and gold accessories. If any critique it was a little big in the shoulders which resulted in showing just a little more cleavage than I wanted but I have narrow shoulders for my bust size so this is common for me. Overall very happy with my choice.

I loved this yellow number. It was sent to me as a replacement for a damaged dress and while I did not think it looked that great online, I ended up loving it in person. It was flattering and I loved the bright color. There was ample room for my large chest so I was able to go with the smaller of the two options. All in all this was a great dress that I would definitely rent again!

The dress fit well and was very comfortable. I would have preferred it to be a bit shorter, but still looked good. I received a lot of compliments, especially on the color. The material is a bit heavy, if it were any hotter during the day I would have been uncomfortable. There is no stretch to the material, something to keep in mind if you will be sitting or dancing a lot.

Loved this dress. I had actually ordered a different one and I didn't respond to their email in time to pick out my own, so they sent me this one and I was in love with it! Couldn't have picked it better myself. Obviously, it's a little low cut in the front, but it was an extremely flattering shape AND there are pockets, which is great when you're trying to take a million pics on your phone while dancing. If I win the lottery anytime soon, I'm buying this dress. Great experience with customer service and an all around good night!!

Tons of compliments, but not a great fit

Size worn: 10
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wore this to a charity gala. Pros: I got so many compliments all night long. The color and pattern are beautiful, the photos really don't do it justice. It's really heavy and structured material and the shape is really slimming and flattering. Cons: This dress runs VERY small. I'm usually between an 8 and a 10. Even the 10 was extremely snug, it was riding up all night. The shoulders/straps were too big/long so it was gapping at the top all night. Also the front pocket is a cute idea, but it never laid flat. It was kind of pouching out all night. The fit just generally left a lot to be desired.

The fabric is so special that photos don't do it justice. Such a rich thick deep fabric, really gives it texture and style. My sister called it curtains or drape material. Very fun and easy to jump around it. Can't take too large of steps though bc it keeps your legs together

I wore this as a subtle statement for my sister's graduation party.

Size worn: 4
Rented for: Party
This dress was great for an evening grad reception. It was pretty and looked great standing up. However when I sat down it was hard to get comfy with the pencil skirt. Additionally it has one large pocket across the front that would be great to help hid belly or for an early maternity fit, but looked awkward and pouchy on me. Cute dress that photographed well, but had I had an alternate to wear I would have chosen that.

I loved this dress and knew I wanted to rent it so I was happy to have an occasion to rent it for. I wore it to an award ceremony at my school. The material is very thick, and reminded me of a couch; however, the pattern is gorgeous. The skirt was a little tight and walking up stairs or sitting was difficult. The pocket in the front was the weirdest thing ever. It was like a muff. It bulged out from time to time but it didn't bother me as much as I expected it to. Overall it was a great dress.

Beautiful material and flattering cut

Size worn: 2
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this dress for a summer wedding in Washington, DC. The material is of high quality and looks expensive, but also has some stretch to it so you can move around. (The element of stretch also allows this dress to accommodate multiple body shapes). I am top-heavy with narrow hips and I found this dress to accommodate my chest without swallowing up my small hips, which I really appreciated! There's some cleavage and some leg, but not too much of either, so it's appropriate for more formal or family oriented occasions. Overall a good rental and a pretty dress! The only reason I'm not go oh five stars is the dress looked like it had seen quite a few rentals and so it wasn't in pristine condition, and the pockets on the dress are sort of random and weird IMO.

Very cute dress for the Kentucky derby, but...

Size worn: 0
Rented for: Party
While this dress was pretty darn cute, there was something just a little off about the fit. It wasn't great for somebody as busty as myself. There is no give to the fabric so it kind of just squishes you in. I would've liked to size up, but then it got really loose in the waist and just look sloppy. It was also cut a little funny in the tush area. I think it would work very well on an athletic build. It could be very cute on somebody who's not very curvy. The color is slightly different in person than it is in the pictures. The back color is more yellow than it appears in the photo it is not a true white background at all. I do have to say that I LOVED the pocket!! I was able to slip my iPhone in there and it was totally invisible!

Like the other reviews say, this is a great dress and perfect for a springtime wedding, but the pouch-like pocket in the front is quite unflattering. Additionally, as someone with broad shoulders, I found it a bit snug up top. Perhaps better for petite or straight & narrow body types. Overall, though, I was comfortable in the dress, and the fabric and color are very cute.

This dress runs very small. If you have even one curve you should really consider opting for another dress. My mother tried on the dress-she is a size smaller than me- and it still would come over her hips. Beautiful dress just not accommodating to curves.
