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!

I received a ton of compliments on this dress, which was actually my backup dress. This dress was super comfy and I loved it. I not only felt comfortable doing a reading at my friends' wedding wearing this dress but also had a blast dancing in it.

PERFECT DRESS FOR A WEDDING!

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!

The color was a little bit darker than the picture but it was perfect for this winter wedding. The dress fit true to size and was extremely comfortable. The fabric was also thicker than I thought it would be, which kept me warm. I wish I had this dress to own! So many compliments!

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!

Perfect for a winter wedding

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
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.

Super cute!

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I loved how this one fit my arms and the color was so cute! It is also very flattering if you don't have a flat tummy. I'm only 5'3 so I wish it was a bit shorter so I could have worn it out to a NYE party. The hem is curved and part of its chic style so using hem tape would've taken away from the design. Its length went to my knees which looked super conservative. This dress would be perfect for a taller girl or someone my height could wear it to work or a work party. I will definitely rent this for Easter Sunday instead :)

Pretty dress, runs small

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I loved this dress! I rented it for New Years Eve and it was perfect with tights and a statement necklace. My only complaint is that it runs very small. Luckily, I saw previous reviews that said this and ordered up a size for my backup dress, which is what I wore. I am curvy with big hips/butt and the size 8 pulled at the hips and did not fit the way I think a shift should (a little loose from the chest down). The fabric was thicker than I expected, which was nice for winter along with making the dress very flattering because it did not cling.

Fun birthday dress

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
As other reviewers noted, this runs pretty tight in the hips! I'm normally a 6 or 4 but sized up to 8. It was also quite short, it was fine to wear but I felt a little self-conscious at times. That said it was a great dress! Beautiful color that really makes a statement with a wide range of jewelry options. Despite it running small and short I still thought it was flattering on my curvy frame.

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.

Everyone loved the dress but it did have its flaws. The fit wasn't great and I had to go up a size. Fits tight in the waist and large on top. During the course of the evening the hem in the bottom of the back completely came undone. I'm also 5'9 so it was a very short dress on me.

Rented for: Date
I ordered this for a Valentine's date, but the blizzard weather in Boston caused us to cancel our reservation. so I didn't end up wearing it out. This dress is a beautiful color, and so fun! The shoulders and arm parts don't seem as huge in person, which was good for me. It fits like a basic shift in the main part of the dress, so not much definition there. It was a little short on me, but since it is winter I had planned to wear it with black tights. I would consider renting this again for another date night. The color alone was enough to make me fall in love with it.

I rented this for a wedding shower and I loved it. I think I was surprised how much I liked the look. I am still loosing baby weight so I don't always know how a dress will look on. I rented the 10 and 12. the 10 fit perfect, not too tight. The 12 was way too big all over. It is a nice, thicker fabric which I liked. It was short but not too short, I wore tights with it and felt comfortable all day!
