Bump friendly
At 5 months pregnant dressing up has become a chore. This dress is pretty and has a nice full body that makes it easy to fit a baby bump. The fabric is nice and thick and overall it is very comfortable.

Cute party dress!
This is a super cute style that is great for anything from a night out to a cocktail event! Love the colorblocking and the asymmetry in the sleeves! The fit definitely isn't ideal for someone big on the bottom - would definitely recommend sizing up for your back up if you want this to be truly shift-like!

This was my back-up dress and I was happy with the results!
This dress runs true to size and is very flattering with the color design. Unfortunately it is a little awkward with one side having a sleeve and the other not making it boxy. I wish the dress had two sleeves or no sleeves! (also you can't get away with tights in it and may need a tan)

RTR was such an easy experience. I rented this for a weekend in South Beach and it was perfect.
The dress is very comfortable. I wore the 4 so it would be slightly more fitted and not as shift-like, but the 6 would have worked for me as well. The 6 left a lot more room in the hips. I would definitely want to wear this again.

Perfect for a Palm Springs weekend getaway.
I got both the size 4 and the 6. The size 6 fit around the waist and butt but it gave me absolutely no shape. It made me look boxy. I ended up wearing the 4 that evening with a pair of Spanx. The dress fit well overall but was definitely a bit tighter around the tush. I am a big fan of being comfortable and not wearing clothing that is overly form fitting so the 4 was outside of my comfort zone. I went for it and received compliments all night!

Hi Jenna! You look great! I see that you chose the smaller of the two sizes you ordered. Does the fabric have any stretch to it? Thanks!

Too big to wear!
I'm 5'0 tall but have never had a problem renting before. Typically with heals, a size 0 or XS fits me perfectly. This dress, however, was way too long and baggy- just completely unflattering. Even the beige totally washed me out- it was like the same color as my skin. Definitely don't recommend this dress.

Great party dress
I rented this dress for a casual rehearsal dinner. It was very comfortable and flattering. The one shoulder made it fresh and interesting. I accessorized with black shoes and jewelry to make it more of a nighttime dress.

Beautiful dress, but didn't work for my body type
This dress is beautiful and perfect for a hot summer day since the material is very light. I rented the size 0 hoping it would work for my height (I'm 5'2) but unfortunately this dress ran very large. It was way too long for me (hit my knees) and it was way too baggy so I simply couldn't wear it. Overall it is a beautiful dress but made way too big for petite frames, even in the smallest size. If you are very petite I would recommend renting something else, but if you are taller then it would definitely work for you.

Loved the comfort of this dress!
This dress was perfect for a summer wedding- cool lightweight material. My only wish is that I wore he 8 because the 10 seemed a bit big on the top after a few hours in it. Overall I loved it and got some compliments on it!

First Time
This was my first time using RTR and I didn't really know what to expect, but it was great! It was in perfect condition. I couldn't tell the dresses had ever been worn before. I rented this dress for a wedding and it was great! I got so many compliments on it. I rented this dress in a 4 and a 6 and they both fit, but I ended up going with the 4. The fabric had a lot of stretch to it but the attached slip didn't really have any give so that may determine what size you end up wearing. but I thought it fit pretty true to size.

Too blousy for pear shapes or anyone with a booty.
Unfortunately, I ended up not wearing it to my event. It looked great on the model but was too sack like on me. It really clung to my butt and the rest just hung shapelessly around my mid section. It didnt make me feel confident so I wore an old dress instead. RRR was great though and gave me a credit so it wasnt a waste but I recommend going up a size or two at least for any shorter girls with booties. The fabric and colors were beautiful though so I was disappointed I couldnt pull the dress off.

Perfect daytime look for a rooftop party!
I got the 10 and the 12. I ended up not even trying the 10 on. From the reviews, I got both sizes because I saw to go a size up if you want it to be shift and get your real size if you want it to be more fitted. I liked the look of the 12 on me because it was a shift dress.

Cute, but runs large!
I didn't end up wearing this dress. I almost always wear a 4, but this 4 literally looked like a potato sack on me. I think it would have been really cute had I gone down a size or two to make it a little more form fitting.

Very cute, elegant dress
This dress is very comfortable and slimming. If you want it to fit like the picture, order one size up. Otherwise the dress is a bit more body hugging. I would rent again in a heartbeat.

So comfortable & stylish....AND I was pregnant!
Loved this dress...I was 4 1/2 months pregnant and wanted to rent something forgiving in the waistline to make room for my bump but still fitted in the hips so I didn't look like a house! This dress did the trick!! I loved it! I'm normally more of a 4 in most of the dresses I've worn but since I was preggers I ordered the 6&8 and was surprised the 6 fit perfect...that might translate to 'running big' for those of you that aren't pregnant...basically though it's completely straight through the side seams so it can work for all types of shapes! I would definitely rent this again!! Ps the necklace was also a rental and I got a TON of compliments on them both!!!

Beautiful color for my rehearsal diiner
I loved how simple, but elegant this dress was. I wore it for my rehearsal dinner and I thought the bright color mixed with the neutral was perfect for standing out as the bride. I went with neutral shoes and gold jewelry to keep it sophisticated. I didn't 100% love the "shift" style because it made me look a little boxy, but the one shoulder/sleeve helped to balance it out. I only gave it 4 stars because my butt didn't look as cute from behind ;)

i wore this dress for my baby shower, perfect for the occasion!
i normally wear a size 4 but at 35 weeks preggo i opted for the 8 and 10. both fit but i wore the 10...it had a little more give. it was gorgeous, and i got tons of compliments. i would definitely recommend as a 'bump friendly option'. it fit loosely through the mid section and tighter around the legs, very flattering!

Gorgeous silhouette, but fair-skinned ladies beware!
I adore the cut, style, and fabric of this dress, but I just couldn't wear it-- The top color block was just too close to my actual skin tone and it completely washed me out, to the point where it was really unflattering. Had I thought to get a spray tan beforehand (I'm so mad at myself!) it may have been a different story... alas, I ended up making a last-ditch shopping trip.

Pretty, but not the best look for me.
This dress is really pretty, but didn't look quite right on me. The cut is kind of loose/baggy, so with my chest size, I felt that it made me look heavy. And on my short body, the length short wasn't enough to offset the fullness... The sleeve even seemed too long for me. I kind of felt like I was wearing a potato sack :/ I think it probably looks great on tall people with smaller chests than mine.

Not bump-friendly for me
I rented this dress in my normal size and one size up, since reviews said it ran large and I am now six months pregnant. I could barely get the larger size over my bump. Even if it had fit, it really wasn't that flattering (probably because it's not really meant to be maternity). If I weren't pregnant, I think it would have been pretty cute. I also wasn't in love with the taupe/cream color - it's a bit more brown than in the photo and washed me out a bit (I have pretty fair skin - not ivory, but fair). For reference for those that are pregnant - my bump is about 41" and my bust is now 36DD (I rented the 6 and 8).

Cute dress, but nothing special
I wore this for my 25th birthday party, which was a pretty chill evening out. I was underwhelmed by the dress, as compared to past RTR finds. It was a cute dress (and I did get a few compliments) but I didn't feel like it was anything special. I usually wear a 6 or an 8 in dresses-- I have small shoulders but large hips. I just got the 6 because the 8 wasn't available. I don't think I would want to wear an 8, since the 6 was already baggy in the waist. But it was pretty tight around my hips and legs--I'm glad there was no dancing involved in my evening, because it certainly would have ridden up.

The dress, obvs.
I rented this for a summer wedding when I was 17 weeks pregnant. I thought I might need the 4, but the 2 fit better. It was loose through the stomach and the diagonal color-blocking did a great job of hiding my not-quite-a-bump/is-she-pregnant-or-just-fat belly. I maybe should've considered the zero so that it was tighter in the butt/legs, but was more worried about it fitting in the stomach. And (always true for a short girl) it could've been a couple inches shorter. But all in all, a great dress!

did not wear it
This dress look different in real life than on picture. I did not like this dress and had to return it. I looks kind of cheap. Most likely that this dress was used to much and did not look presentable any more. But costumer service is amazing, they sent me another dress over night , so i could make it to the party. Everything works out for me with the other dress. Great customer service, very appreciated it.

Great piece for a business casual look! Stand out AND look professional!!
I used RTR for all my events throughout the Ms Veteran America 2014 Competition weekend! This dress was used for my business casual look during preliminaries. I was looking for a dress with a pop but one that would accomodate a 36 week belly!! I'm usually a size 4 and ordered the 10 which fit just right. I felt pretty and comfortable all day! I paired this along with the Kate Spade Coral Statement Earrings (also from RTR) and loved the look!

I loved this dress. However, I thought it would run big based on the reviews but I have a butt. It was too tight on my butt so I sent it back. Maybe the larger size would have fit better.

Bump friendly dress for day time occasion.
I rented this for a day time affair, and I am 6 months pregnant. I went with the 2 since most reviews said it runs large, and I'm glad I did. There was plenty of room for me and my bump. It was comfortable for moving around and works for any season. The color is not the most flattering on me - I'm pale and the off-white top was too close to my skin tone. But, there are limited options for bump friendly, and this worked well for the occasion.
