Wearing a hip, comfortable dress.
Great fun dress. The sleeves are a bit pronounced but it is definitely memorable and I received a lot of compliments. Feels like a shift dress.

Vavoom color!
Unique sleeves and amazing color! Heavy fabric for a June wedding but survived. A bit snug in the middle/torso, was able to eat, but not the most forgiving fabric. Super comfortable and able to wear a regular bra! Definitely on the shorter side, rides up when sitting and had to be conscious of hemline throughout the night but not scandalously short. Would rent again.

I got so many compliments on the color and for of this dress. It was perfect for a wedding!
This dress is absolutely perfect. I got so many Compliments on this dress. The color is gorgeous and it was so flattering. I have DD chest so it is hard to find a dress that fits up top. But I felt so comfortable in it all night. I was able to dance the entire night without worrying. I like my dresses short so I will say that it was on the shorter side after putting my heels on. But I like it short so it worked for me. I ordered the 6 and the 8 because the reviews said to size up. I wore the 6, and probably could have worn the 4 if it weren't for my chest. I am normally size 4 or 6 so I felt like it was right on with the sizes. I would definitely recommend this dress! I will 100 % be renting this dress again!

Comfortable and able to wear shapewear
It was a tad short for my taste but it was fine with some black tights. The material was thick and unforgiving. I ultimately felt confident in this dress when I'm not so comfortable in my body after having a baby. I would rent again.

Great dancing dress
The fit was great- it was short enough but nothing too scandalous. The material is SUPER thick. I danced all night and was comfortable but I got sweaty and hot quickly. Also AZ wedding in June!

Love Love LOVED this dress. The sleeves were fancy but not overly dramatic. The fit was true to size. The color is more fuchsia/purple but was amazing. Classy little cocktail dress perfect for a night on the town!

Having all my loved ones at such an important life event.
This dress was BEAUTIFUL!!! I loved the style, the sleeves. Gorgeous! However, it was a bit snug on the bust area (42DD) and short (5'8"). But, I cannot blame the designer or RTR on this, as I do not know my dress size in numbers. I ordered based on women close to my body type. I do not regret my rental what so ever. The dress was beautiful and I felt beautiful. For my fellow tall, busty ladies, I hope this helps.

Short but fun!
I LOVED this dress, my original size was not available and I had sized down for my back up size so it ended up being a little too short. The sleeves are so fun though that I couldn't help but wear it! I absolutely loved the color and fabric of this dress. Had I been able to get the correct size, this would have been a home run for sure! I would definitely recommend sizing up for your back up size. A lot of review said this dress was too short, however, again had I had the correct size, it would have been absolutely fine. For reference, I am 5'3" and about 135lbs with a small bust (34B) and larger in the hip/thigh area - this dress hit mid thigh but would ride up a bit when I danced but with a different size this wouldn't have been a problem at all. I got tons of compliments on this unique and fun dress! I would definitely rent it again!

Stylish and Comfortable!
Loved this dress so much, I wanted to keep it! The color is awesome, and it was really comfortable to dance in because it's not tight. The material doesn't stretch, but if you order the right size you'll be fine. I usually wear a 6 and it fit just fine. I would highly recommend this dress!

Cute sleeves!
The sleeves were super flattering because it covers my bulky shoulders and accentuated my tiny little arms. The length was a *bit* short, hence why I sized up to a 4.. it gave me maybe a few more millimeters of fabric that brought it back into work-appropriate length. The color was more berry than I anticipated, but it was still really cute and I got compliments all night!

Flattering Sleeves but too snug...and short!
I usually wear a 12/14 so I sized up and found this too snug and short for a christening. I'm 5'9'' and definitely have curves. This one just didn't work for me. The material was stretchy and comfortable but wouldn't for me for a church function!

Fun comfortable dress!
Loved this dress and got lots of compliments. The 8 had me a little worried about snugness in the belly, but the 10 was a little sack-like, so I went with the 8. I was worried this dress would be crazy short since I'm fairly tall. It was short, but not scandalously so.

Easter
I rented this dress for Easter because I thought it would match the flowers on my daughter's dress, which it did! The color is gorgeous! Both the 2 and 4 fit. I ended up going with the 4 because it was a tad longer and looser. If I were wearing it in the evening (as opposed to church and an Easter tea), the 2 would be fine.

A miss for me.
I was really excited about this dress! I love the color and the sleeves make it so unique, but I wasn't able to wear it. This dress runs small. I wear a 10-12 and the 12 was too small. It is also a really short dress and I'm only 5'3". I also found that the shoulders were very slender, and didn't look like they do on the model. This is a beautiful and well made dress, and RTR is a great service with fast shipping and customer service. This dress just didn't work for me.

Comfy dress and perfect accessory!
I usually wear a size 10, but am 18 weeks pregnant so I went up 2 sizes. The dress fit loosely, I might have been able to get away with the 12, but was very happy with it as is. I got so many compliments all night. i paired it with the Kate Spade Uptown Necklace, and they were a match made in heaven. Some of my friends kept telling me I needed to buy the dress and necklace, because it made such a great outfit. I was so comfortable all night and happy that I knew I looked great!

I got this dress for my daughters school art auction/fundraiser
I got a 10 & a 12. The 10 fit perfect but I wore the 12 for some extra room. There was a sit down dinner and I didn't want to be uncomfortable. I love the sleeves and the exposed zipper on this dress! The color is beautiful! I'd totally rent this again.

Beautiful, Casual and Comfortable!
I rented this dress for a rehearal dinner and loved it. It was very comfortable and casual. Yet, the sleeves dressed it up and overall is was super cute. I didn't get a good picture while wearing it, but I posted the only one I took. I typically wear a size 2 and that's the size I wore in this dress. I ordered a 0 for backup. That dress fit as well, but I went with the more comfortable fit in the size 2. You can't tell from the picture I posted, but the sleeves were really cute on the dress. I would recommend getting a necklace to wear with it since it is a solid color dress that starts high on the neck. I would love to wear this same dress again.

The sleeves on this dress made all of the difference.
I ordered a six, my regular size and an 8 and am glad I sized up. I could have gotten away with the 6 but was way more comfortable in the 8. The color was a little darker than in the photo so I paired with lighter jewelry and shoes and it was more appropriate for a spring event. The sleeves on this dress are stunning and set you apart from just a regular cocktail dress. I was thrilled with this rental.

The dress fit very true to size. It was just short enough without being too revealing. I was super comfortable all night. I could wear a regular bra with it which is always a plus.

Fun raspberry dress
I rented this dress because it looked like a fun way to add some pep to an otherwise boring work week. I loved the raspberry color of the dress and the sleeves. It pulled a little around my hips in a way I didn't love, so would probably get it in an 8 if I could re-do (haven't tried on the 8 so don't know if it would be baggy). It was a little short on me for the office without tights. It didn't wrinkle too much being shipped to me or sitting all day long.

Beautiful color!
I wanted to love this dress, but contrary to every other dress in my closet apparently I needed a 12 instead of a 10. I ordered this via RTR's "Get 3 Dresses for the Price of 1" special, so I had not ordered a back-up. The color was beautiful, and the shape was nice, but I really just needed an extra inch in the hips for the dress to fit properly and be comfortable. I'm keeping this on my "hearts" list for the future, because I would love to rent it and actually be able to wear it.

Stunning!
I have never received more compliments! Loved that this dress covered my arms, but showed off my legs, and gave me shape without hugging my love handles. I'm a 36DDD and the 10 fit my chest perfectly. A few people commented on how short it was, but others loved it and I thought it was fun (Though it was short enough that made sitting complicated, and don't pick up anything off the floor...)

Comfortable and flattering
I wore this dress out for the more casual of two bachelorette weekend evenings in Charleston, SC in September. This dress is crazy comfortable! The color is a nice dark pink / mauve and I loved the big sleeves. Will definitely rent again - probably for a different type of event.

I loved this dress! I wore it to my friends wedding rehearsal dinner and it was extremely comfortable. The color was gorgeous and the sleeves were fun! It's super forgiving around the stomach area if you have a bigger chest.

The dress fit well. I am usually between a 2 and a 4. The 4 fit great and I got positive feedback all night. The dress is so comfortable and the sleeves and vibrant color really make you stand out. I would definitely rent this again.

Delicious color, dreamy details, quality fabric.
This dress was perfect for an early Valentine's soirée! True to color, (mostly) true to size. Loved the exposed gold zipper and pretty sleeve pleats – they laid just right! A little short, but nothing scandalous.

Classy, beautiful, short
I had a work retreat and used this dress for our gala and awards ceremony. The color was beautiful-sort of a deep pinkish purple. The fit was flattering. The only drawback was that it was really short. The hem in the back is slightly shorter than the front. Really hard to sit in because of the length.

Versatile and flattering
I wore this both to a New Year's Eve dinner and a presentation where my audience was college students. Loved it and really didn't want to return it. It had a small amount of fraying at the neckline but it hardly showed because it was towards the inside of where the fabric lay. Probably would have bought it otherwise. The shorter length nicely offsets the voluminous sleeves.

Not for those with broad shoulders.
The body of this dress fit great, but the sleeves not so much. The sleeve has a great full effect on the model and in other photos. But if you have broad shoulders, your shoulders will fill up the sleeve, causing it to stick out at an angle. The sleeves ended up looking more like wings, not hanging like they were supposed to, and made me look even broader up top. Had I sized up to fit my shoulders, then the body of the dress would have been way too big and done nothing for my figure. Beautiful color, the style just didn't work for my body type!

Disappointed!
I always wear a 12 or 14 dress depending on how I want it to fit. Some comments say it is big and some comments say it is true to size. It was very fitted around the body so that I could not wear it. I wanted the loose fitting of the picture and got a dress that was too curve hugging for my grandmother's birthday party.

Flattering dress!
Very flattering, easy dress. Can be dressed up or down. I wrote it to a work semi-form awards banquet with a statement necklace and it was perfect! I am 5'1 and the length in a size 6 is perfect. Could potentially be too short for those who are taller. Overall great dress!
