Looking runway-ready has never felt so effortless!
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Needed a little something flirty, yet classy, to wear to New Year's Eve and this fit the bill just perfectly. The skirt was seductively short (which, let's be honest, is an essential NYE requirement), without being too suggestive. The ruffled and asymmetrical fabric sewn throughout the middle of the dress broke up an otherwise simple design, transforming it into an aesthetically interesting cut. Added some ankle booties and black tights, and was ready to ring in the New Year in style. It's a must-rent, to be sure!

Wanted to keep this one!
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
LOVED this dress!!! It was my backup, but I decided to wear it to my event because the primary dress didn't quite work. I felt amazing in it - it is short, so it highlighted my legs (my best feature) and it was so so comfortable. I wore it without a bra, but you could definitely do a strapless. It is sophisticated but fun, and I will definitely rent it again!

So cute, but issues with pleating...
Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
This dress was perfect! Husband and I went out to a nice restaurant (sans kids!) for Valentine's Day, and this dress was perfect. I wore it with nude pumps and the RJ Graziano Dress Me Up Necklace, and it was so cute! The only semi-issue I had (and only reason I didn't give this 5 stars) was that my backup size dress was actually messed up! The navy blue layer with the pleats had been pressed, so there were no pleats! If you ask me, the pleats in that layer are what make this dress cute instead of boring. Luckily, the size 0 fit perfect, so it wasn't an issue, but if I had to wear my backup size, I would've been extremely disappointed. I feel like this was a bit of an oversight on RTR's side, although a small one. It's something that should definitely been looked at before the dress is sent out.

Loved the tiers! The dress was adorable with tights and little black boots. It is short, but relatively loose around the waist - so it was chic AND comfortable all night long!

Maybe it is just because I am pear shaped but the dress looked like a moo moo on me. Love it on the model and other people that rented it, didn't love it on me!

Fun fun dress!

Overall fit: True to Size

I rented this as my backup, and wound up wearing it to the rehearsal dinner and out on the town. It was a great fit, the tulip hemline was super cute, and kept the dress fun. I loved the navy black combo, it would work with many shoe and jewelry options. I would up wearing with nude patent pumps because it was warm out, but had brought tights and black suede booties if it was chilly. I would recommend this dress if you are self conscious about your middle and thigh area, but like to show off some leg!

Looked great from the front! But I do have a big butt and it was more fitted than I would have liked. Other than that I loved it!

Chic Party Dress!

Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I wore this for my birthday party last year, and it was amazing! Even cuter on that in the photos. I paired it with a silver statement neckless and chunky cuff bracelet, and got a ton of compliments. Fit is true to size, with very little variance that I noticed. This is definitely a dress that I wished I could keep!

I wore this to a summer wedding and it transitioned great from day to night. Such a great dress to dance/eat/drink in. No need to accessorize as the ruffle is eye catching enough!

Wasn't as pretty as I thought it would be. The fabric of the dress almost seem worn. Was expecting to love it and I didn't. Not impressed.

I really loved this dress! The only problem I had was that it was a little long because I am so short but need to order larger sizes because of my large bust, but the dress was so pretty and was great for a nice dinner party!

Gorgeous dress - love the hem at the bottom - all around great fit, unique and very flattering!
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress was great and very comfortable. The layering is so pretty and was very flattering for my body type. I am 5'5'' and wearing tall heels was definitely necessary because the dress was a bit longer than it looks on the model. It's definitely not form fitting but I was not looking for something overly tight so I was very pleased with the rental. Overall, I loved the dress and it was perfect for a formal holiday dance at my college!

I didn't actually wear this dress because it did not work at all for me.
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large

The dress was a great color and a unique cut. For me, sadly, it didn't look as good as I had hoped. I am very short and petite. On a taller girl this dress would hit right and work a lot better.

This dress was loose in a good way with beautiful detail that made it more than a casual sheath. I would definitely recommend ordering it.

Runs large & looks a bit drab
Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Large

The material is a little stiff; I expected it to be softer and "flowy." The colors are also darker than pictured. I could have made it work if it was 2 sizes smaller. I'm usually a petite 0, and the size 0 dress was 2 sizes too big.

Runs a Bit Large
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
My dress size is usually anywhere between a 4 and a 6, but usually a 6. I have moderately curvy hips and a small chest, so I thought renting this "for all body types" dress would suffice for my birthday party. As soon as I took the plastic off the size 6 dress, I knew it wasn't going to work. I tried on the 4, and not only is it a bit longer than I had hoped (which isn't even much of an issue), but it is obviously too big in the chest and back area. Very much looks like I'm wearing someone else's dress! I know I "should" have chatted with a fit specialist about my body type, and I suppose if I ever decide to order again I will do just that, but unfortunately, it looks like I'm dress shopping tonight! Also, this dress has gotten GREAT reviews from others, as it IS a great dress, and I'm sure looks great on most body types! Just wanted to make a note for others to be sure to chat to a fit specialist if you have a "weird" body like mine! =)

love this dress...It is very nice in person, but probably not worth $550. I wore it to my boyfriends birthday, which started out at an "all you can eat" BBQ restaurant, so I knew I would need lots of room! the dress laid kind of funny against my strapless bra, so I had to take a regular bra and pin it back so the straps didn't show. It would look best with a bra that lies very flat against the chest. I am 5'1" with proportionally long-ish legs and the length was just about right with heels. might be too short for some tall girls

The only reason I didnt give it 5 stars, is that I am 5'3" and the dress ended up coming to right above my knee, giving it less of a party look and more of a work look (which was not my goal). However, this dress was super comfortable, and definitely eye catching. I received more than one compliment when I wore this out. All in all, great dress!!!

I am petite with a full bust (32G). I tried both a 4 and 6. It really is a nice dress but unfortunately did not work with my bust so I had to send it back. My bust pulled on the large armholes (which showed my bra) and the top tier hit too high.

This dress was really fun and comfortable and the separation in fabric in the front is very sexy. It doesn't look as green as it appears in the picture - it is more charcoal, which was a little disppointin.

This dress is one of my favorites! It is so pretty in person and super comfortable due to the relaxed shape. I was worried that the dress would be a little short from the picture, but it definitely was perfect with tights. I wore it both out to dinner and then out during the day. Can't wait to rent it again!

This is the kind of dress you don't want to return. I wore it twice- at night and during the day. It's flirty and stylish without trying too hard.

Loved it! I wore this dress to my 30th birthday dinner. Fit is true to size. Because it's not structured it's comfy, and the playful layers still make it a flattering dress. The lenth is a bit shorter on one side, which makes it fun & flirty to show off some more leg. I'd definitely rent this one again.
