Great Dress for chic downtown wedding
Fit great. Just added a statement necklace that I already owned. This dress was great for a multi-cultural wedding in downtown Chicago. A good mix of modest neckline/sleeves and sexier length.

Beautiful Dress
The dress was very beautiful but i ended up not wearing the dress because the stomach area was not loose like they describe it to be. Overall a beautiful dress.

Darling sleeves!
I really loved this dress but it ended up being too short to wear without tights and I thought the tights looked strange so I ultimately didn't wear it. The color is beautiful and the sleeves are very unique.

Cute, but too short
I wore it with leggings and flats, so I got away with the length, but it was overall too short. I am 5'4". It was loose in the bust yet clingy in the hips. It rode up when walking. Color and sleeves were great.

Beautiful wedding!
The color is beautiful, and it's a unique fit. It was shorter than I expected, but it was a good thing since I am 5'3". I received many compliments on the dress, that I paired with gold heals. I would recommend this. My only regret is that I totally forgot to take a picture!

Fun, flattering dress!
I rented this amazing dress for New Years Eve. A lot of people say it runs small; I found that my normal size fit just fine. The length was perfect for a NYE night out in New Orleans and the sleeves are super fun. I wish I could buy this one. Even though I want to try as many dresses as I can, I will probably rent this one again!

Felt great in this dress!
Sexy but still classic look and feel. Very comfortable, although fitted. Any hangy skin will show, so spanx or super built body is a must.

Pretty, stylish dress but runs small & short!
I had to size up to my backup (8) from my normal (6). The 6 was too tight around the hips, but the top (bust, shoulders) fit fine. I wasn't comfortable with the tightness around the hips and felt more comfortable in the 8. It was a little short, and I'm only 5'2". When I sat down I felt like I was exposing a lot of leg. I loved the sleeves, though, as I felt it added something to the overall style. I wore my hair up to not distract from the sleeves with a statement necklace. This would have also looked nice with big earrings instead of a statement necklace. The color was a little darker than it seemed on the website, too. I think it was more fall than spring color-wise.

Perfect, but too short.
This dress would be a 5-star rating, but it's too short. It fit everywhere, including the bust, which can sometimes be an issue because I have large chest, but it was perfect here. The dress was intended to be worn to a daytime presentation ball. It is a conservative event and daytime and I'm in my mid-40s, so I had to wear something else. I was sad because I had been looking forward to it and Trina Turk is one of my favorite designers. If you are on the younger side, go for it! Beautiful color!

Great Statement
I rented this dress for a late-winter wedding. The dress was very comfortable, and a great length.... I am 5'4 so sometimes dresses are "matronly long" if they are meant to be normal length, but too short for a wedding if they are mini.. this one was perfect! The sleeves are certainly a statement, and probably a bit larger than I was anticipating, but in a good way. I have an athletic build with broader shoulders, and this dress was great for that if you are similar! I would recommend this dress :)

I loved this dress and would absolutely wear it again! I live in workout clothes on a daily basis so for me to buy clothes for a training didn't make sense- it was cheaper and easier to rent! I was so happy with my selection.

The color and fit are gorgeous!
I wore this dress to a friend's spring wedding and absolutely loved it! I ordered a 4 and a 6 but ended up going with the 6 because it was a bit longer and more forgiving in the belly area. The 6 was still short but not so short that I felt uncomfortable. The color was less pink than I expected but I almost liked that more- it was gorgeous! The dress paired well with flats which was perfect for an outdoor wedding but would look great with heels too. The sleeves are unique and fun. I didn't want to send it back!

Great dress for a cold/rainy wedding
The fabric is pretty thick so it was perfect for a cold/rainy wedding I went to at the beginning of March. I loved that it had sleeves and was a little different. I felt like the dress came up a little high on the sides so I paired it with some black tights, black heeled boots and a black statement necklace and loved the look! Would rent again!

SF MOMA Modern Ball's Post-Modern Party
This dress was a great entry as my first time using rtr. I'm normally around an 8 and ordered the 8 and 10. It was VERY short. The 10 fit a little more like a shift dress, I ended up wearing the 8 even though it was a bit tighter then I usually wear, mostly because it seemed like it would ride up less. I decided against shape wear because it kept bunching up weird under the dress. I was worried the sleeves would be overpowering, but they were light and didn't feel noticeable while wearing. I can see how this dress might be difficult to wear if you are more bottom heavy, it was skin tight against my hips and butt, and I don't consider myself to be particularly large on that area.

Loved the color!
Loved the dress, got a lot of compliments. I ended up wearing the 10 over the 12, it was a little loose, but still fit great. The hem line on the dress I wore seemed a little altered, didn't look great close up, but wasn't bad enough to be noticeable to others. I'd recommend this dress to others-very comfortable!

Not the greatest dress in the world, but definitely pretty and did the job!
The dress fit well, a little snug on the hips and loose in the waist, for me at least, and surprisingly short. The dress was a nicer color in person than in photos. It was a nice dress and did the job but didn't have a WOW factor. Great for the price though. The unique sleeves give it some oomf, but it is really just a shift.

Cute Dress...
But not for my wide-hipped girls unless you go up a size. I have gained weight since getting married last year, and so I loved the fact that the sleeves covered my not so fit arms. The waist/hip part was tighter than I would've like. I tried on the 8 (my normal size) first: the top part (chest/shoulders) of the dress fit me fine, but the waist/hip part was too tight for comfort. I probably could've pulled the size 8 off if I had worn a shaper underneath, but I knew they would be serving a 7 course meal at this wedding, so I wanted to be more comfortable. I opted for the backup size: 10. I paired this dress with some Nude suede closed toe platform pumps and a gold statement necklace. I originally decided to wear black strappy sandals with the dress and a gunmetal colored statement necklace, but I felt that the nude and the gold makes the dress stand out more. All in all, this is a beautiful dress. I wish it would've been true to size and provided a little more leeway around the hips.

Fabulous color and cut!
I thought the other reviews saying to up a size were being dramatic ("it's a shift dress, isn't it?!"), but I heeded their warning just to be safe ("it's okay if it's a bit baggy"). Thank goodness, I did! I wouldn't have wanted to go any smaller and risk having the dress pull around the hips. As long as you accommodate for that in your ordering, you'll love this dress. Extremely flattering and beautiful color!

Beautiful and eye catching!
This dress was so flattering on! The sleeves create such an interesting silhouette. It is rather short so I wore pantyhose underneath. I was a few months pregnant when I rented it and it fit great over my bump. It such a cute dress and I got stopped by nearly everyone with compliments or wondering where I got it. I added a chunky necklace and pumps and it was just perfect. This would be great for a night out, date night, or a cocktail party. You could dress it up or down depending on your accessories. Highly recommend. I will probably rent this again once I have the baby!

Both 10 & 12 fit so it's more of a personal preference of how tight you want it. The 10 was tight in the hips and slightly too short for me for the occasion. Lots of compliments!

I got so many compliments on this dress. I just had a baby and was worried my tummy would show. Its a beautiful dress that creates height and attention to your shoulders and neck. I was very happy with the vibrant color.

I wore this to a formal dinner.
I had this dress ship to a hotel I was going to stay at, it arrived a day earlier so RTR guaranteed that I would get the dress in time. This dress is definitely more wine color than red. If you're looking for a specific red dress, just be aware. The fit is okay, I'm a 12, and I was to put on this dress in 12, but it's very tight. I still wore it to the dinner because I liked the sleeves a lot, they are flattery. The fabric is fairly thin, but not easy to wrinkle, that's definitely a plus. You definitely want to order one size up for the look that's shown on the model. I probably won't order this particular dress again, but RTR is awesome!

Did not wear this but loved it. Both sizes too small in hips/thighs, so avoid if you have an hourglass or pear shape as it is cut very straight with no give.

Simple & Flattering
Pros: Easy wearing color - beautiful for spring/summer wedding, simple and can wear all kinds of jewelry with it (my necklace was left at home and didn't make it on the plane), fit great and forgiving Cons: the side slit came up a little too high for my long body - but I was able to keep it modest

A little tighter on my hips than the usual sheath dress but overall I loved everything about this dress. So many compliments on the uniqueness of the sleeves and perfect for a Summer wedding in Charleston.

Fun summer wedding dress!
I absolutely loved this dress! I will say the dress is pretty true to size but the smaller size you go, the shorter it gets. I almost wore the next size up because of the length of the dress, but the 4 ended up being ok. Really flattering fit and extremely comfortable. I especially loved the sleeves! Would definitely recommend this for any summer wedding.
