This dress made my eighteenth birthday so much more incredible! I felt so beautiful and got so many compliments. A little girl that walked past me told her dad I was a ballerina! The color is actually deeper than is pictured on the model. It is more of a raspberry-- but I liked it even more. I was very comfortable and had no problem with the fit. I would recommend this dress to anyone looking for a dress to make them feel like a million bucks!

PERFECT FIT! PERFECT COLOR! PERFECT DRESS! I could not have been happier with this pick. The fabric was perfectly warm for an outdoor wedding in October and the sleeves and cut of the dress was beyond flattering to my figure. I got nothing but compliments all night. I wore this with black nylons and black heels and it was adorable!

Gorgeous color, more of a raspberry than a bright pink. Love the sleeves too! Only problem I had was it runs tight around the hips, I was expecting a looser cut. Still recommend!

Perfect dress in a beautiful color for a fall wedding. It is even more stunning in person.

This dress fits very true to size through bust and shoulders. Waist and belly area is a bit snug. It also hit me mid thigh on my 5'5" frame. Overall gorgeous and RTR was a dream to work with. My original dress didn't work out and they really accommodated me.

This dress was easy to dress down for a casual rehearsal dinner.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
Many reviews suggested to size up because of a fitted bottom half, and I'm glad I did. It's a great dress to rent if you aren't sure of the events formality. I was able to dress it down with tights, boots and a belt, but had planned to dress up with a statement necklace and heels if needed. It hit just above my knees (5'2") and was a great conservative option for a curvy body-type.

The dress really does run true to size, but I always size up in shift dresses because I have hips and so I like it to not be too tight around them. But it was a beautiful color and everyone complemented the dress!!! It made my birthday special!

Beautiful color

I originally thought the dress was a shift/loose fitting dress when I ordered it. It isn't as loose as expected in the model picture but I still wore my original/normal size. It was a beautiful dress and I loved the color and sleeves! I rented a necklace from RTR to finish the look! The material was thicker but it was perfect for a November wedding!

Unique and feminine dress!

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I ordered this dress and sized up not 1 but 2 sizes!! I wanted it to fit just like the model: very flowy and not tight. I am normally an 8 and the 12 worked for me but was still a little tight…I would recommend if you are an hourglass figure to size up at least 2 sizes! This dress was shorter than I thought it would be…it gives an illusion of being a mini because the sides are raised. It is a flattering dress and the sleeves are very glamorous. It's goes well with statement necklaces, and the color is gorgeous!

Simple yet classic - great shift dress for a dressy occasion

Size worn: 0
Rented for: Wedding
I ordered this dress for a wedding in January - I got an immediate compliment right when I walked into the church! Incredibly comfortable and conservative, and made with a very nice, thick quality material (don't expect anything less from a Trina Turk dress). However, because of how thick the material is, I would avoid going to any outdoor event in this dress where it may be hot. Dress runs true to size and I'd describe the color as a cranberry pink or magenta. I'd totally rent this dress again!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small

This was exactly what I was looking for. It ended up being colder than expected but with tights and boots it worked great as well. I found that it ran a touch small (I am normally between a 6 and 8 and definitely had to go with the 8) but the color and material of the dress were perfection.

Very comfortable and it Made me feel flawless. It Was the perfect balance of dressy and casual!

Size worn: 6
Rented for: Party
I rented a size up based on other reviews, but wish I would have stayed true to size because it would have flattered my figure a little bit more, the only reason I kept the larger size was because I was hosting a party and decided a little extra wiggle room would be beneficial, which it was! The color was rich and beautiful! The material isn't stretchy , but it is movable while dancing and moving around all night, it stayed pristine all evening. The dress was very comfortable and paired beautifully with a statement necklace and booties. Its a versatile dress that can be dressed up or kept casual. So many compliments on it all evening! I felt beautiful and would rent it again!

I am so so so pleased with this dress! It was a great length and hugged me just enough to make me feel curvy and beautiful without being self-conscious. I received so many compliments all night! I cannot say enough about how gorgeous the color is either! The only thing was the slight tightness in the bust, but as a woman with larger breasts that was something I expected and was prepared for. Overall, this was the perfect dress for the occasion. In the words of a friend, "You look like a movie star!"

I had my eye on this stunner for a while and jumped at the chance to rent it for a family event. The dress is truly beautiful and unique but not ideal for my curvy shape. The heavy fabric is not forgiving on wide hips or a less than taunt mid section but shapewear definitely helps. The length was fine while I was standing but felt short when I sat down and I'm only 5'3. The color is lovely and this dress stands out.

Great date night or any time dress!

Size worn: 8
Rented for: Date
I rented this for date night with my husband in Atlantic City. From the minute I put the dress on I felt like a million bucks. I rented my regular size (8) and a size 6. The 6 fit ok but was a little snug in my butt/hips. The size 8 was much more comfortable. The dress hugged all the right places but still kept the shift shape. The dress was lined and fabric thick and it was the perfect length to show off my legs, but not too short where I had to worry about showing off other things. I also paired the dress with black tights, booties and a statement necklace. This is the type of dress that can be toned down for work or dressed up for a night out. I am renting this again, even if for another date night and am already looking to find where I can buy it because this is something I can put to good use!

This dress was the prefect balance of sassy and sweet. As if the boots didn't give it away, I wore this dress to a suite at the Dallas Cowboy's Stadium to watch the PBR & Rodeo finals and it was so comfortable! Read the reviews though, I'm usually a 6 so I sized up as recommended and I'm happy I did- the 8 fit prefect! As ALWAYS RTR never disappoints, another great experience!!

Great pop of color and the sleeves make the dress

Size worn: 6
Rented for: Wedding
The suggestions say to size down. But for hourglass figures like mine, size up. The picture on the model shows the dress as loose. I wore a 6, my normal size and it fit well but it didn't have the same look as shown on the straight figured model. If I rent this dress again I'm sizing up. The sleeves are gorgeous. Great color. Rented the Kate Spade necklace shown in my picture. Also felt length was a little shorter than I usually wear, but the dress was fun!

Perfect for an early spring wedding.

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
Based on other reviews I rented a 6 and an 8. The 6 fit well, but was definitely fitted through the hips. I was going for more of the shift-dress look as it appears on the model, so I went with the 8. It was comfortable and perfect for an early spring wedding in the Midwest, since the weather can be so unpredictable. The color is definitely more raspberry than maroon as it appears in some photographs. Paired beautifully with gold accessories. I received numerous compliments throughout the night.

Loved this dress! I wore it to my cousins Bridal Shower, as the MOH. I am a usual size 4 in pants/shorts and vary between 6 & 8 in dresses. This dress appears to look like a loose fit throughout, but is not. It is tighter through the hips and butt. The size 6 fit me, but was too right for comfort in the hips and butt. The 8 fit perfect!

This was my first RTR experience. I got a 6 and 8 (wore the 6) based on other reviews to size up but kind of wish I had gotten a 4 and 6. I felt at first the the 6 was slightly too big but after wearing it for a few minutes I decided it looked fine. Tad big at the hips, but I think the 4 may have been too short. The color was fantastic, and I didn't see anyone else wearing anything close to it at the wedding. Lots of compliments on the unique style of the dress. Matched it with the necklace in the model photo and I think it was perfect.
