Wore this for a wedding. I could have worn the 10, but chose to wear the 12 to be a little more comfy. Got lots of compliments. Unfortunately for me, someone was also wearing this dress at the wedding

Very flattering!
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
I wore this dress to a brunch for my Mardi Gras Krewe. I chose it because it was purple, and it looked daytime without being work-y or church-y, and it was dressy without being fancy. It was perfect for the occasion, and I got a lot of compliments. It was much more flattering than I expected it to be. The photo makes it look a-line and fairly loose, but it was close-fitting and really accentuated my waist and showed off my curves. My only complaint is that the brocade fabric panel feels a little more cheap than it looks. The fabric overall was not what I was expecting. It was definitely thinner and stretchier, which wasn't a bad thing...just something to be aware of.

Great dress!

Overall fit: True to Size

Fit was perfect. True to size, hits right above the knee. I wore this to a school event so I wanted something conservative and this hit the mark. Plus the stretch and panels kept it sexy. Only drawback is it doesn't have a lining.

Easy-peasy!
Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I had issues with the other dresses I had rented, one was a bit too snug (and I only received one size for some reason) and the other had an extremely sticky side zipper making it super hard to zip up at the waist and I was quite nervous it could break while trying to zip it before the wedding. I was in a bit of a panic but RTR offered me another dress and shipped it overnight to the hotel where we were staying for the wedding. It was there when we checked in and happy to say, the 10 fit me perfect, maybe could have gotten in the 8 since the black fabric stretches but overall, the 10 was very comfortable and easy to wear. I also loved the bit of a sleeve on a January evening in the NE. The jewelry I rented looked great, I didn't wear all the bangles because they were pretty noisy but the three I did wear was plenty. I added my own sheer black scarf and let it flow down the back of the dress for an extra bit of flair. RTR was super easy to deal with!

LOVE this dress!!!
Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I cannot even begin to tell you how much I LOVE this dress! It was so flattering--especially for this 43 year old mom and the colors were so intense and rich....much more so than appeared online. I wore this for a political event at the Four Seasons...a dinner for the Speaker of the House. It was important to look classy and elegant and this dress allowed exactly that. I'm 5 '8 and feared this dress would be too short but it was perfect. I live in New England and this event was in December...so I wore SPANX tights to keep worm and keep everything where it needed to be! : ) This dress was ideal and I can't wait to rent again!

Beautiful Retro Vibe and Perfect Holiday Dress. Loved it!
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I adored this dress and would buy it if I could afford it. The photos don't do it enough justice, the purple brocade is very rich and slightly metallic which offers a little sparkle and makes it appropriate for parties. However, the cut is fairly conservative so I didn't feel inappropriate at a corporate holiday party. Both the 6 and the 4 fit well, the dress has enough stretch that it's comfortable. I chose the 4 because it hugged my curves a little better and the length was a touch shorter. As you can see from my photos the length is longer on my petite frame but I think that added to the vintage feel of the dress. My daughter who is taller and a 34DD chest wore the size 6 the next night and it looked amazing on her so it works for larger chested girls as well. I paired it with a retro looking bootie and left jewelry to a minimum as the dress stands well on it's own. I received a lot of compliments. Don't hesitateto rent this stunner.

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I wore this dress to an industry (professional) holiday party. I'm on the board and wanted to look professional, yet style stylish (and hot!). This dress was perfect - it's a conservative cut, but the black blocking creates curves and the dress is fitted, which makes it a little sexier. It's stretchy so it's very comfortable too. Got lots of compliments.

This dress was comfortable, felt true to size, and was perfect for a family holiday gathering!
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I wore this dress for my family's Thanksgiving dinner in order to achieve a balance of dressy and casual. It was perfect! I am basically a size 5, and always order a size 4 & 6 from RTR. The dress in my photo is the size 4, so I would say this style runs somewhere between true-to-size and a little big. Also note that I am 6'0" and 100% of that height is from my legs, so this was short on me, but would typically probably be just above the knee/to the knee on someone who is more proprotionate. Overall, it was a high quality item! I didn't realize the paisley purple design had a bit of shimmer to it until I saw it in person, and that added a perfect, extra touch of elegance. I highly recommend this dress & designer!

"Let me guide u 2 the purple rain. Purple rain, purple rain..."
Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
As a big Prince fan, this dress was calling out to me. I wore to a work holiday party. The 0 fit in almost every way and would've been fine if it were all I had, but it was skin tight in the backside area - too tight for this conservative affair - so I was more comfortable wearing my backup size, the 2. I also wore with a padded brassiere and control top tights. The model's picture doesn't do any justice to the beautiful black jacquard detail - I was complimented quite a bit on this. I would be happy to rent this dress again. R the R is such an innovative and helpful service. Dress shopping at the mall was once a huge drag, and an expensive ordeal, but I will probably only rarely buy dresses now that R the R is on the scene.

I love this dress ! I had a religious wedding and I needed something modest so I chose this dress. I normally wear size 8 or 10 dresses. I wore the size 8 and it fit perfectly! It was super comfy and I loved the color. I was able to sit comfortably and dance around in this dress. I highly recommend! I got soo many compliments!

I rented this free birthday dress to wear to work. It fit our conservative dress code, not too short and was super comfortable and figure flattering. The material is on the thicker side, I wore it to an after work dinner and received many compliments at work and at dinner. There is a little bit of stretch, so it just fit like a glove.

This dress was beautiful. Ran true to size but the bust area was a bit snug, as I would have imagined. The purple area had a beautiful sheen that really stood out and made the dress classy for a formal event! Great dress for someone that has a larger bust and wants to wear a sexy dress without showing cleavage. Will def rent again!

Classic with a subtle edge

Overall fit: True to Size

I wore this dress to a company holiday party - the color, fit, and material made it the perfect dress for the occasion. There was a subtle hint of sparkle, but it was executed in a very tasteful way. It was formfitting, but still appropriate for wearing around my co-workers while still maintaining the attention of my date, and being super comfortable.

Fun dress for work or play!
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I rented this dress for my work holiday party. I ended up wearing my back up size of 8 to the party, but the 6 fit as well. I wore the 6 during the day with a blazer and black pumps to a conference and then later that night with boots and a jacket. I wore the 8 to the party with tights and dressier pumps (which I didn't get a picture of). It was a fun dress...kept it classy for a work party, but still added a little touch of shimmer. Classy is sexy too, and I felt great in this dress, got lots of compliments and had a very fun time in it :-).

Scratchy Yet Absolutely Gorgeous
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
I only give it a 4 star rating instead of 5 because of the scratchiness of the dress. The purple fabric on the dress irritates your skin but other than that it's amazing. Fits true to size and holds everything together. Good length for a dinner and the sleeves are proportional to the dress instead of tight like some can get. I have a full bust and it was a bit snug but not uncomfortable.

I rented this dress for NYE at the restaurant where I work as maître d', and the dress was perfect for the night. It is festive and shimmery, while also being conservative enough for work. The waist and the top fit just right, though the skirt was a little snug. Still, its length (it hit just above the knee) kept it classy.

Loved this dress -- it was conservative yet modern. The middle has a shimmery brocade insert and the sides are a stretchy ponte like material, which makes it very comfortable and easy to wear. Got a ton of compliments, too. I usually wear between a 6 and an 8 and I took a 6 and it was fine. I wouldn't say it runs large but more true to size, maybe a touch big...
