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!

Great dress!
I usually wear a 6 or 8, so those are the sizes I ordered. I tried on the 6 and didn't even bother to try on the 8! It fit perfectly! It really cinches in at the waist, creating a really pretty (and flattering) silhouette. It came to just above my knees which was totally appropriate for my event. I got a ton of compliments and I wish I owned it!

Black tie optional event.
The 14 was not available so I went with the 12. It was a little snug in the mid section but with the proper undergarments I sucked it in. It was a lovely dress, gorgeous fushia and I enjoyed not wearing black like almost everyone else there. It was a little shorter than I would have liked and I kept tugging it down but not so short that it was inappropriate. I would wear this dress again just in a larger size.

Beautiful color and relatively easy to wear!
Dress was great overall. Loved the sleeves detail and the color was a deep magenta which was really nice. The only con was that it was shorter than expected. I had to be careful whenever I sat and just ended up draping my jacket over my lap to cover myself.

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!

First RTR experience. LOVE! Great dress, gorgeous color and was perfect for occasion.
Beautiful dress to try out my first RTR experience. Based on reviews, I ordered a 8 & 10, sizing up a bit from my normal 6. I'm 5'9, 140 lb, athletic build. The 8 was perfect - I'm sure the 6 would have been fine BUT this is a short dress! It was good to have extra length for a taller girl. Fit wonderfully but I am pretty slim through the hips. If you are curvier I could see it might not lay as a 'shift' across hips. Got so many compliments!

Short, sassy, and fun!
This dress is SHORT. I wouldn't have worn it if I didn't have tights on. That being said, this was the perfect dress for a holiday work party. It fit like a glove, so it didn't ride up or make me self conscious. The sleeves flowed nicely. The top was not too tight on my large (36DDD) chest. I wore spanx to keep everything in place. This dress stole the show!!!

Very flattering dress!
I've recently gained about 20lbs after months of failed infertility treatments. I was not looking forward to dressing up in Vegas for my husband's work event. After reading the reviews of this dress & seeing pictures of others, I suddenly felt more excited. This dress gave me confidence I haven't had in a while...hid all the bad parts ;) I'm almost 6' tall & while it was a teeny bit short on the sides, I was expecting it. You just can't bend over! Otherwise it looks great. Also be careful while sitting.

Favorite rental yet!
Many say this runs small, but I didn't really notice that it was too terribly different than traditional sizing. I'm usually a 4 or 6, and those were the 2 sizes I ordered. I went with the 6 merely for a little extra room for dancing, but both fit. I don't have the most wonderful arm shape so this dress was a nice option because of the flared sleeves. It was so comfortable, I received many compliments and I felt great in it. I highly recommend this one.

Should've doubled up on my Spanx
Wore this to a work party, was a bit tight, but I didn't care. I loved it, loved the color, loved the sleeves, loved the length. Just should've ordered the 14 or worn more Spanx (or both)...

The dress is stunning!
Absolutely loved loved loved this dress! However it is VERY short. I am 5'3 and when sitting down it was a tad uncomfortable. However I would rent this dress again in a second, I would size up next time though. The sleeves really make this dress a stand out.

Sleeves make the sheath fit dress
I wanted a little looser fit since it was an office party. It looked very elegantly even though it was looser. The length, imo, was a little short for an office party, but I wore black tights underneath. Though in the reviews I saw people wear this a lot to summer weddings, I thought the material was more fall/winter appropriate. Look for a long necklace to break up how "solid" it is.

More of a fuchsia than a pink
This fits VERY VERY small. I usually wear an 8 in Trina Turk and the 10 barely zipped. I would suggest going a size up for your first and 2 sizes up for your back up.

Great color, but very short!
Had very high hopes for this dress, but unfortunately, I was disappointed. Dress runs small, and is very short. I rented this dress for a baptism I had to attend and was stuck adjusting and pulling it down the whole time. I even wore a size larger (size 6) thinking that would help. Dress fit nicely through the top and mid-section, however, the higher cut on the sides did not work well for me. Sleeves were unique and color was pretty though.

Beautiful Dress. Perfect for a Wedding!
This is a beautiful fuchsia dress that has elegant butterfly sleeves. When I ordered the dress, it was predicted to be sunny and 75 degrees on my friend's wedding day. However, when a cold front came through and it turned out to be rainy and 35 degrees, I was able to add some black tights and killer heals, and I was good to go! It is a classic, versatile dress, and I received numerous compliments on the deep, rich pink color. I will definitely rent again!

Great lines and color
So I really liked the color and style of the dress but it does run small around the hips. I normally order a 4 and 6 for RTR, and wished I had the 8. But I still wore it and got compliments :)

Gorgeous Dress for NYE
The size 6 was a great fit, very true to size and unique without being overly revealing for NYE. The 6 was very short though, which worked fine for a night out, but you might want to size up if you are wearing it for something more reserved.

Gorgeous and comfy dress for Birthday & New Years!
I loved the cut and color of this dress! It was perfect for my 30th birthday/New Years celebration. It goes without saying I received compliments during the night. The 4 was much more fitted and a bit short. Being that I wanted to disguise my midsection more (thanks to a couple of weeks of holiday goodies), I went with the size 6. It was still flattering and gave me the extra length I wanted. The fun sleeves kept me warm as the temperature dropped. I would absolutely rent this dress again in the future! - especially at the price.

I wore this to my parent's Christmas party. Got so many compliments on it! I want to buy it! I ended up wearing the 8 because the 6 was a little snug with my tights on around my thighs. Thank you RTR!

First RTR dress, so prefect
This dress is lovely and the thick fabric let it drape beautifully. Since it was a family wedding I went with the size 4 for a relaxed fit, but the 2 would have worked as well. I was nervous about sizing and had the dresses sent to the RTR store in Chicago. Everyone I worked with was super helpful and luckily I didn't have to make a last minute switch.

Rented this for a holiday party as there's always lots of cameras and dancing.
I could have pulled off the 10, but opted for the 12 due to the length - it's a little short. I'm 5'6/160 lbs. and this dress was fabulous! Comfortable, easy to press, out of the norm for a holiday party, but just dressy enough. Everything about this dress and my RTR experience was top knotch!

Pretty, and fun but short
I bought this to wear to a Bar Mitzvah and it was way too short for that. So I had to find something else for that event and wore it to the saturday night party. It was fun and different but Im 5'8 so it was very leggy on me. I am more hourglass , inverted triangle shaped so was worried it would accentuate my broad shoulders but it was really nice. I wore it with long necklace which helped tone down the shoulders a bit.

Cute and comfortable dress!
Perfect dress for my husband's holiday party that had a fuchsia color theme. Runs very small however if you want the dress to fit like a loose shift as it does on the model. I usually wear a size 6 in dresses and sized up to a 10. I'd say I was between a size 8 and 10 in this dress, but went with the larger size to not worry about the dress riding up. Perfect length for a girl on the tall side. Paired it with nude pointed toe pumps and gold geometric necklace to give the cuteness of the dress some edgy contrast.

A Fun, Flirty, Yet Conservative Dress for Work Holiday Party!
I LOVED this dress. The quality was impeccable and the fit was true to size. I wanted something fun and different that was also modest enough for a work party. The dress felt a little too short with bare legs for the event so I wore black hose with it and it still looked great. I was able to wear a regular bra which is always a plus and I would recommend wearing a thong or Spanx to avoid a panty-line.

Downtown birthday in Chicago! Perfect dress!
Loved this dress! I wore this for my friends birthday at a hotel in downtown Chicago. I didn't want it to look too "preppy" so I wore a chunky necklace and some gladiator like heels. I'm a little thicker in the middle, but the dress fit really nice. I'm a true size 6, and wore a size 6. I'm short, but the length was perfect for me. Would definitely recommend!

this is a great dress! the only issue is that it runs a FULL size small.
very comfy and great color - not as bright as you think it will be) i am very curvy (34FF) and it looked amazing but i did have to go up a size from my normal 8 or 10. everything is so easy with this dress. its a "put on and go" no pulling or twisting at all.

super comfortable, great cut, but not as flirty as online pic
Texture of the fabric harsher, not as soft, as imagined from online photo where it looks softer and flirtier. The true fabric is slightly more purple/magenta than pink and it's more a suit fabric in weight.

Comfortable and classy for a formal event!
I wore this to a formal engagement party I was dj-ing and it was perfect all night. I was spinning outside and it was chilly but the sleeves were just enough to keep me warm but not overheat. The dress is darker than shown on the model which I expected from other reviews. Also from other reviews: I wanted to size up, but they only had size 2 available, so it was a risk, but fit well. (I typically am a 2-4.) Not too tight so I could move quickly during song changes but still flattering. Even though I was behind the DJ table all night, it was the perfect length since I'm short!
