Not flattering on an apple shape.
The dress seems to fit true to size as I am normally a 16 but got the 18 and it was rather large. However, it was very unflattering in my midsection. It has no form to it so it doesn't provide any shape or structure in the midsection to help create a waistline.

This was my back up
I didn't end up wearing this dress. The fabric was very thick and amazingly made of course. Beautiful color but I didn't like it as much as my first dress. The "pleating" in the back really accentuated my assets if u know what I mean and I think it was a little too long for me. The circle of the skirt a bit too big. Wasn't the most flattering for my body but I didn't hate it :)

Nice fabric and color but runs very large.
This dress is a beautiful indigo purple material but was just way too big for someone petite. I was swimming in the zero and the photo doesn't show just how wide and full the bottom is. Heavy fabric with a bit too much bulk.

Beautiful color and cut
This dress definitely runs large, and does have a good bit of 'excess' fabric. I wore it for a going away shin-dig and found it to be a piece that could potentially be dressed up just as much as dressed down. I would have liked for it to be more fitted in the waist, and ended up pairing it with a belt to handle the extra fabric. Beautiful quality. Pockets were great too.

Pretty color and flattering fit!
I didn't end up wearing this one because the cap sleeves were a little uncomfortable and not good on me and ultimately I liked my back up dress better but it was a pretty color and flattering fit for an hourglass shape.

Very comfortable, yet elegant to wear to a wedding.
I ordered size 2 and 4 and wore the size 2. The hem ran a little longer on me than the model in the photo. I paired it with a big statement necklace.

Rented this dress for a rehearsal dinner. One of the most comfortable dresses Ive ever worn. I was the first renter of the dress(tags still attached!). Loved the color and pockets. Paired with large statement earrings and bright pumps.

Great color, but not the best fit for my body.
Pros- Fabric felt great, had a nice weight. Beautiful color was somewhere between purple and cobalt. Pockets! Not too short on my tall frame. Cons- Fit tight across the shoulders/top. The cap sleeves are cute in the photo, but looked bad on me. Excess skin (or chunkiness) poked out right near my underarm. If you look at the forward facing picture of the model, you can see there's a little bit of skin that shows between the sleeve and body of the dress. On me, that was chunky on both sides of my body. I had to pose awkwardly to hide it, so I decided not to wear the dress. For reference, I have somewhat broad shoulders and I'm between a 34C and a 34D.

Runs large but great qualifty
I was swimming in this dress. I am in between a 2 and 4 but the 2 was huge! It was really long and just big all over. It is a really pretty dress but it was just not the right size. The material is a good quality and it is a beautiful color.

Gorgeous color!
This dress is beautiful, and hangs very well. It would work best on thinner women, as I didn't care for the cut by my armpits. It highlighted a body part on me that really doesn't deserve highlighting! I wore a sweater and it worked just fine, but with just a few more square inches of fabric, the dress would be totally fabulous and I would have loved it. Other than the armpit oddity, I'd say the fit and weight of the fabric are fantastic. It's a simple dress but very elegant in its color and shape. It could be worn for a wide range of events, depending how you dress it up or down with shoes and accessories. I wore the dress for family event. I wouldn't rent this dress again, but it could be fabulous on someone else.

Too wide at waist
This was a backup dress for my friend's engagement party. Unfortunately, it was not very flattering and I opted not to wear it. The dress has a lot of fabric and it does not give any definition to your waist. The dress was more straight until the waistline where it flared out, I tried using a belt, but it just didn't work. The model in the photo appears to have a much more defined shape in this dress, but that was not my experience at all. This was my first RTR fail, but that won't keep me from renting again.

Comfortable and very flattering
This dress is a beautiful deep color, nice wrinkle-free material, and figure-hugging without being uncomfortable/unflattering. The only minor drawback was that the sleeves rubbed under my arms a bit but I would most definitely wear again.

Perfect dress for formal occasion
The dress was a nice, kind of heavy material. The color was a very pretty royal blue. The dress is pretty conservative though. It fits on the long-side. It would've been better for me if it was a little shorter.

Liked this dress so much that I wore it twice! Once to work and once to dinner/drinks.
Great flow to this dress. The color is vibrant. Sometimes blue/sometimes purple. Lots of compliments.

not for short girls
this dress is cute, the size 8 fit perfectly - but the full skirt fell past my knees (5'4") and was actually unflattering on me as a result.

Dress is very flattering
The dress runs a little large. I wish I would have ordered a size 4, but the 6 still fit good. Has pockets which a plus. Material is a little heavy but didn't mind it.

Fab fabric.
The arm holes are a bit small and the cap sleeve feels strange but looks fabulous. I found the waist to be a bit loose, but I ended up liking it so much that I kept it on for dinner. It perfectly hides a food baby.

Pretty Dress for daytime.
The fit and length on this dress are perfect for any event. I wore it for a day time work event. The color is bold and beautiful. Love the fit a bit snug around my chest area other than that it was perfect.

Cute, but too small
I've had no trouble fitting into size 2's before. In fact, when my size choices are 2 & 4, I sometimes wish I had gone for a 2 & 0. This dress had me wishing for a 4. It was cute & simple, but I ended up not wearing it.

Perfect for my work holiday party!
I had a baby 6 months ago, and haven't lost the baby weight yet. I wanted something that hid my not so flattering stomach and upper arms. This dress was perfect! It looks even better in person than it does online! The material is a beautiful color, and so silky and comfortable. The pockets are fun and add nice flair to the skirt. The lines of the dress accentuate your curves while still making you look slim. I highly recommend it! Spice it up with some fancy jewelry and shoes and you are ready to go!

Absolutely perfect! Could not be happier.
Loved this dress. Lots of compliments on it, it's very chic, very stylish. The flared skirt... awesome. It also has pockets so I didn't need to carry a purse with me (I tend to travel light anyway). I thought it ran a bit small. I am normally a 14, but the 16 fit better, and even that size didn't zip up as easily as I would have liked. Overall very flattering, I didn't need Spanx or anything with it. Also- the color is amazing. Pictures don't really do it justice.

It was the annual work Christmas party, where we got engaged last year.
It fit like a dream. The pockets were an unexpected surprise. The only thing I wasn't crazy about were the strange cap sleeves but once I put my self-consciousness behind me I loved it. I'm busty and didn't feel like my bust was the only thing you could focus on. It hit right above the knee and skirt shape was adorable, I would rent this in every color if available.

Dress looks great and is comfortable. I'm sure it will be great for my cousin's wedding.
I ordered both the 14 and 16 and usually wear no bigger than a 14. I was surprised that I needed the 16 but mainly because of the bust. I'm a 38DD. Also, I have a small butt/hips so the flare more than covers everything and is kinda cute.

Beautiful in blue + Awesome pockets!
Really enjoyed this dress. The color was awesome (cobalt blue) and the fabric was really soft. It even had a little flow which made dancing fun. I knocked it a point because the armpits are cut a little weird (see my photo) and the solid color wasn't so flattering from behind (bra lines).

The dress fit perfect. The side pockets were perfect to carry her lip gloss all night. Dress stretched in all the right places for the perfect fit. The color was vibrant. She and everyone loved it.

LOVE THIS DRESS. (But order a size up!)
It was gorgeous and so fun and fancy! The 14W (my usual size) would have fit except it is narrow in the bust, and there was no give in the material, so thankfully I ordered a 16W with my extra size and it fit perfect.

Comfortable but unremarkable
I received this as a substitute for another dress I rented that was unavailable. I didn't end up wearing this for my event, but wore it to work the day before instead. It was great for the office, I actually wish I owned it because I would wear it to work often! It's nice and long, not too form fitting, comfortable, and it has pockets which is always an added bonus. It would look great with tights in cold weather too. I wouldn't rent this for a special event though as it just wasn't special enough.

Flattering but runs large
Loved this dress. It was sent as a replacement when another wasn't available. I'm normally a 4 or 6, and the 6 fit at the bust but lots of extra room at the waist and hips. I threw a belt on and it looked great! Very flattering and fun while still conservative. The material is quite thick, almost like a scuba suit, which a made it a little less than ideal for a summer garden party.

So comfortable and stretchy so I ended up wearing the smaller size. Will fit most body types.

I wore this dress to a bachelorette party in the Wisconsin Dells.
The theme of the party I attended was for everyone to wear a solid color in the rainbow and the bride wore white. I chose this dress for the bold purple-blue color and it was perfect. The cut of the dress was flattering and fit true to size, however, the cap sleeves seemed much smaller on me than in the picture. They made the dress hard to dance in and that was all I was doing. The sleeves kept bunching up. The material was nice, kind of thick for a summer event though and it was the kind of fabric in which water or condensation from your drink glass will temporarily leave a mark. Overall, the dress was nice and worked for the event I attended but I wouldn't rent it again unlike others I have found at RTR.

Beautiful Bold Color and Pockets!
I rented this for an event I was attending at a local museum. Since it was right after work, I wanted something that was still work appropriate but fun enough for the social event. I love the cut and color of this dress. The arm holes were maybe a tad tight but I have broad shoulders for my size. I wore the 8 because it was easier to get zipped by myself due to my short arms but I could have easily worn the 6. The fabric might be a little heavy for outdoors in the summer but I was inside so it was great. It has beautiful stretch and POCKETS!!! Probably a little plain on its own but that's why I paired it with the statement necklace (also RTR). Perfect pair!

Nice engagement photo dress.
I wore this dress for my engagement photos. The color was beautiful, and the fit and flare shape was flattering. But overall the dress ran a bit big. If I had to do it over, I would order a 2/4 rather than a 4/6.

Got so many compliments in this dress!
This dress is really cute and has pockets! It is a great pick for a semi-formal wedding. I dressed it up with some statements earrings and cute pumps. I totally recommend this dress for a late summer or early fall wedding. The material is a little thick for hot weather.
