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.

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!"

Gorgeous but not what I expected.

Size worn: 14
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
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.

Fit was a little small - sizing notes said it runs big but all the reviews said runs small so I ordered a size up as my back up and needed it. Great length, awesome sleeves and beautiful color. Great dress for statement accessories and bold shoes.

I love the color, sleeves and length. The dress was a little tight through the middle and for that reason I wish I had a larger size. I would rent two sizes up and for the extra size go one up.

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!

A hot "POP" of color to brighten your night! It's BEAUTIFUL!

Size worn: 8
Rented for: Date
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!

I got so many compliments on this dress - the sleeves add just enough flair and the nice cut on the legs are a beautiful detail too. It made for the perfect dress for a wedding! I ordered a size up from what I typically wear but found the hips could have been taken in just a smidge if it was a dress I owned.

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.

This dress was great for a March rehearsal dinner. The materials is heavy so it was still warm, but the color and cut made it pre-spring appropriate. Definitely glad I sized up, the 10 skimmed my hips without being too baggy. Overall really glad I rented!

This dress runs very true to size. I am petite so I was worried about the dress being too loose but it is more fitted than what the picture leads you to believe. I wore this to a wedding and realized that it is a little difficult to sit down in for a longer period of time but it is well made and overall very comfortable!

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!

Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
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.

I had rented a different dress for my event. When it did not fit I panicked. I call RTR up to see if there was any way I could get another dress. They were so helpful and even suggested this dress for my event. They overnighted this dress to me, I was apprehensive about it because it was not my first choices but I trusted there stylist and I am so glad I did. It was so beautiful and flattering I did not want to give it back!! This dress made the night form me. I am so thankful for the help I received from RTR. It was the best customer service I have ever received! I would rent this dress again in a heartbeat!

Super comfortable, perfect color, elegant style without being pretentious.

Size worn: 8
Rented for: Date
I usually wear a 6 but went for the 8 because others mentioned it was tight around the hips & waist (my problem area) so I went up a size. The 6 probably would have fit well but it was nice to have some room, as we were going to a 7 course dinner. Loved the sleeves, they didn't feel weird at all and the length was perfect - but I'm only 5'1, and I wore 2-inch nude heels.

I chose to wear pants with this because it was slightly short and I'm 5'9. I wore leather pants underneath and wore it as a tunic, and it looked very chic. It was also in the winter months. I think I could get away with it in the spring with no pants but otherwise it was amazing.

The people who came out to support me for my college graduation.

Size worn: 14
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
The dress is gorgeous, great color and I received a lot of compliments. I do think that the size I got was too small though. I think, that the material been more free flowing, the 14 would've fit perfect, but the material doesn't give AT ALL and the lining underneath kept getting stuck to me so I felt like my butt was showing the whole night because this dress is VERY SHORT for a tall person such as myself. If RTR had it in my size for the time frame I needed, I think it would've been perfect. I do want to thank RTR for this dress though because I used my birthday credits to rent this dress and a piece of jewelry and didn't spend a dime. All worth it. Just a tip: BOOK AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE!!

Fits very true to size. It was maybe a little shorter than I expected. A great fit for an outdoor wedding, but it was a nice/thick fabric that could be dressed up for a slightly more formal occasion! Loved wearing it and got so many compliments. I thought the color was a little more plum that it looks in pics!

Beautiful Dress - Great Fit

Size worn: 10
Rented for: Wedding
I loved this dress. I typically wear a 6 but heard it runs small so I sized up and got an 8 and a 10. The 8 fit but I liked the look of the 10 a little better. The necklace was a great addition and I highly recommend it. Looked great with nude heels. Perfect for a wedding in a butterfly garden. Highly recommend!! I would def size up at least 1 size, maybe 2.

I wore this dress for a casual wedding and it was great. My issue was the length. I ordered a 6 and 8 - the 8 was too big and the shoulders seemed off, so opted to wear the 6. It was SUPER short on me. Overall the color was fantastic and I loved the look of it, but it was too short on me.

The fun sleeves got a million compliments- and the short length made it great for dancing!

Size worn: 2
Rented for: Wedding
This is a really comfortable dress - especially if you are narrow through the hips and waist. Due to the big sleeves (which are really fun and unique!) it can make you look linebacker-ish if you tend to be broad already so be forewarned- but if you have a narrow profile it's super flattering- and if you want to accentuate your legs this is the dress for you. I originally paired it with nude cork peeptoe wedges- which I liked best, but as it was an afternoon wedding and evening reception and they weren't the most comfortable shoes I ended up wearing a tall black strappy platform for comfort reasons. The raspberry color of the dress is unique and fun and the fabric is very flattering- I loved this dress and got a ton of compliments on the cool sleeves! Went with a sparkly necklace and diamond earrings and kept my wrists bare and felt like that worked. Loved the dress and you can't beat the price!!! Highly recommend!

I got the 6 and 8 in this dress. They both fit but I wanted a little more room so I went with the 8. The 6 was a pulling across my hips a little, with my tights on, and I just didn't like how it looked. It's a very flattering dress, I'm so happy I rented it!!
