Wore as a Tunic!
Size worn: L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I wore this dress as a tunic with thick black leggings! Unfortunately, this dress is just incredibly short. I sized up and it was still way way too short to wear as a dress. At 5'9" this dress was even short as a tunic. That said, it's an amazing piece of clothing! It's a beautiful purple and it lays nicely on the body. I got many compliments! I would recommend this to taller girls as a tunic with leggings, and to shorter girls as a dress with black tights.

I got several compliments on the dress.
Size worn: L
Overall fit: Small

I wouldn't call this a dress. Its more of a tunic unless you are petite. It's cute but I had to wear it with leggings. It fell just below my hip bones and did not completely cover my butt.

Waaaaaaaay too short. Didn't wear it.
Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
While I know the other reviews said it was too short, I read the measurements and still though it might work. But I was wrong. Which is too bad too because it's a really nice quality dress and would have been perfect for my grandmother's 90th birthday (where we were also taking a family portrait). But it was just insanely short. Too bad.

Dress made to be packed and worn later.
Size worn: P
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
I ended up not wearing the dress however it was quite comfortable and sized perfectly for my body. The only con would be the sleeve length, too short. They fell about half an inch above my wrist and due to the sleeve construction it didn't aesthetically work pushed up. However, the dress was a great material if needed to be packed and a perfect weight for fall or winter chilly nights.

Could not wear this dress
Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I got the S and the M... luckily also got a different dress as back up. Neither size fit me! The small was too tight on the chest area / while the rest of the dress fit my body perfectly! the Medium was perfect for the check / but the dress hung like a formless sack on the body. I LOVE this dress and desperately wanted it to fit and work, but it really is for a specific body type -- and i am NOT that body. I would some combo of the Sm/Med for this dress to work.

Thanksgiving dinner dress with friends and family -- Received tons of compliments!
Size worn: XS
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
Overall, this dress was a winner! The inner lining didnt lay as flat as I would have liked, but that was not noticeable to anyone else but me. The elastic wristband was great as it allowed me to wear the sleeves as 3/4 length (I have long arms and the sleeves otherwise would have looked short. LOVE this dress and will be ordering more from RTR in the future!

I rented this dress for a work meeting. It was comfortable and I felt great in it. The elastic bands on the arms cut off my circulation a little, but over all a very nice dress.

Size worn: None

I am 5'7" tall and this dress was WAY too short, so short that when I lifted my arms up my rear-end showed. Also, the sleeves were 3/4 length on me (in the photos the sleeves look full-length). It is a super cute dress and I wish I could have worn it for New Year's Eve.

Obscenely short!
Size worn: M
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I originally rented this dress for my work holiday party, but ended up wearing it for my husband's 30th birthday party because it was SO SHORT. I had to wear leggings with it because it was basically a tunic on me, and I'm not that tall! Otherwise I found it to fit TTS, and got a lot of compliments on my cute "top", but anyone over 5'3" should look elsewhere.

I don't think I've ever had a dress fit as perfect as this. I'm 5'9" and most stuff is too short. This was the perfect length. Also I have broad shoulders and I had no issues with it being too tight.

This dress ran too short for me.
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I got a size S and it fit well up top and through the waist, but the sleeves were much shorter than shown in the photo and so was the hem. I measured it 30" from shoulder to hem. Barely covered my rear, it looked like a tunic top on me. I am not super tall either, just 5'8". Don't know if the size M might have fixed the length problem but I have a feeling it would have been too big everywhere else.

Size worn: S
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I rented the medium and the small for a backup. I wore the small because it flattered better. I have a tendency to buy clothing too big so this two size option is great for me. I wore the dress with black tights and black knee boot. Looked great and was very comfortable. The only negative was we got caught in the rain and it shows rain spot really dark until dry. Would rent this dress again.

First date success!
Size worn: L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
I wore this dress to a Friday night NYPhil concert with opaque black tights and booties! I am between a medium and a large, so chose the large, however, I wish I had rented the Medium. I was comfortable, but the M would have hugged my body instead of the 60s shift look I had. The plum is a beautiful color. I found the sleeves to be a bit odd, the elastic wrist makes them a bit floppy, so I wore them pushed up. Overall, it was a comfortable dress that I would wear again (in my size).

Got this one because I had (sadly) burned my arm cooking and needed a dress to cover the bandages for my cousin's engagement party. Even uncle Hugh the family priest did not notice the bandages through the dress (although my eagle eye mother in law did--nothing escapes her) so I considered it over all a success!

Very flattering dress, and the color is beautiful!
Size worn: M
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is very classy - I got a lot of complements on how chic & classy I looked. I paired it with 4" silver/grey heels. I'm 5'5", and the Medium hits 3/4 thigh for me. I tried the Small (as backup), and though it fit better up top, it was really short, meaning if I just slightly bend over to sign the guest book, all would be revealed. The style is very flattering, and you can wear a regular bra - which is great not having to deal with too much fuss with undergarments.

Not Good for Short Gals
Size worn: S
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I rented the size small for an afternoon family party of multiple generations would be attending and where more modest side of fashion would be called for. Ended up returning the dress immediately after trying it on. I am 5"3 and wear a normal size 4 in most clothes. The colorblock on the dress hit me where it was very unflattering. Added an extra ten pounds to my frame. If you are short you may be better off with a different dress.

Straight and narrow perfection
Size worn: S
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This is dress is perfect for us straight and narrows. The fabric is just weighty enough to create a nice line, but not too heavy. The sleeves have elastic, so you can push them up if you'd like. This dress can be very casual, and it is so easy to wear. Loved it.

Due to my petite height, I had to add a belt to this look to adjust the length but it was such an easy dress to wear. This is a sure bet for a work event or date where modesty is in order. It is not the look that will garner tons of comments but sometimes blending in is the goal!

I wore this dress to a luncheon during the day and a casual fundraiser at night. It's long enough to wear to the office and cute enough to wear in the evening. It runs pretty true to size, but maybe slightly to the smaller end. I weigh 128 and wore the medium.
