Sleek, gorgeous, worn for a conservative wedding
Dress was fitted, sleek, and perfect for for a conservative wedding. I needed a dress that covered my shoulders. Worn with shiny black pumps & (rented) Sam Edelman Charcoal Stone earrings. This fit my Crossfit shoulders without being restrictive. The fit is for a true hourglass or athletic shape. I am a small D cup - would suggest a padded bra if you aren't a C or D. Zipper was bent from someone "squeezing" into a size they didn't belong in, as well as the waist stretched out - I notified RTR and they responded quickly and professionally. They have my faith and continued repeat business. After another rental outfit crewed up my husband's tux and delivered two size two large (with no help whatsoever) it's so refreshing to deal with a professional company. Come for the product, stay for the service.

I received many compliments on the fit and colors of the dress. It was unique and stood out in crowd
The fit was true to size and fitted my body type very well. I wore the size 8 because I wanted it to be a little looser on me.

The dress was beautiful! I was comfortable at a holiday dinner for my husband's work.
Both the size 4 and 6 fit. I chose the 6 because the 4 seemed to be stretched out in the hip/butt area. So, the 6 fit and looked better than the 4, all around. I was very comfortable at the Country Club location of my husband's holiday work party. It was a great dress!

Great for work and events.
Fit was true to size. I wore this for work and business-casual events. This dress does not contains a lining, so plan to layer up. Wasn't sure about the style at first, but it definitely grew on meQ

Comfortable & Sophisticated for Work Event
This was a back up dress for me. I didn't think it was super glamorous but it was great for what I needed in a pinch. The purple color was very pretty and the material was stretchy. the black belt detail was the same material which had the stretch. The length went to my knees keeping it conservative for a work event. The side paneling had a slimming effect.

Comfortable & flattering dress worn for a work-related event.
Very comfortable and forgiving fabric; I wore it with black tights & pumps to a work event. I would recommend for a work event (it has short sleeves so it works in a more conservative environment!) or for a wedding or rehearsal dinner, depending on the crowd.

Super flattering!
I have a giant bust (32G) and a tiny waist and this was an AWESOME dress for my body type. Unfortunately I don't have a photo-- but trust me it was great. I felt lovely. The only off thing about the dress was the inside was unlined and had a bunch of exposed seams. Obviously no one could tell that from looking at me (the material is thick enough that the lack of lining isn't important). But I was a little surprised by it. RENT THIS ONE.

Absolutely perfect
This may be the best dress I've ever rented from RTR in terms of fit and comfort. It fit like a glove, yet it was still extremely comfortable. Must be the stretchy fabric! It's also quite beautiful, though not in the "formal event" category, and very distinctive, making it perfect for a rental rather than a dress to own.

Perfect dress to wear on the go
Wore this around NYC for a daytime event. It was either a little stretched out in the middle from others wearing, or I could have sized down. Either way, it looked great and I felt fab!

Perfect sleeve length
Wore this dress to a Fall late afternoon wedding. It's hard to find a dress with sleeves and these were soft, not too tight and a great length. The color of the dress is a brighter purple in natural light. Fabric was form fitting but not too tight. Black silhouette added nice shape illusion. Fabric pattern made it easy to wear spanx without it being noticeable at the waist. I'm between a 6 and an 8, the 6 was too tight in hips and 8 fit great - very glad able to order two sizes without additional cost!

The dress was very light material which was great for a summer wedding.
I have a large bust which is why I went for the 12 over the 10. The waist/hips were a little looser than preferred but it turned out ok because I love to get down on the dance floor :)

Great cut! Love the sleeves!
Me: 5'3 140 lbs, 34dd, Apple/busty, generally an 8 or 10 Dress is great! Love the fabric and sleeves. The 8 fits great around the top, loose bottom half (to the point where it is baggy around my backside). I'm very top heavy though so this is normal for me. That said, I think this dress runs big given I usually am between 8 and 10, and for this one I fit squarely in the 8. The way the purple fabric is cut is very flattering. This dress looked like it would be warm, but it is unlined and the fabric is reasonably thin (though heavy enough to hide some bumps). The lack of lining is great to keep the dress cool, but it is a little scratchy on the inside where all the seams hit. Length is perfect for work--just above the knees. If you are taller it may be a bit short.

Comfortable with perfect fit!
I rented this dress to speak at a conference and it was so comfortable I didn't want to take it off! Is is classy and professional but still shows off your figure. The purple inset material is shiny/sparkle type material and is very pretty.

Perfect colors for a fundraiser party where the color scheme was purple, black and green.
I wore the size 4 which fit great. This dress is very pretty and a perfect weight for spring - not too heavy, but substantial enough for a cool spring night.

Sexy silhouette!
I love this dress and wish I owned it. The material was thin enough to keep me comfortable at a courtyard wedding in 100% humidity. We even second lined around the block and I didn't break a sweat. The design of the dress was perfect for my curves. It was a little loose in the bust area but I wore a nicely padded bra to remedy the problem. The material is great at hugging curves and hiding any imperfections, but not so tight that the dress rides up. I didn't bother trying the 10 on because the 8 fit so well. Condition of the dress was great!

Pretty Date Night Dress
This dress was cute and fit true to size. The purple fabric was very itchy. I have fairly sensitive skin, so maybe it wouldn't bother everyone, but I had to wear a shirt under the dress and tights to keep the fabric off my skin. The black panels have a nice bit of stretch, but not too much that you need to size down or that it's too body hugging. It fits very nicely and isn't too short.

My dress came in a day early which was great. It was very slimming and I got a lot of comments.
I really enjoyed the fit I am typically a size two and this fit really well without being too tight or loose. It flattered my figure. I typically wear dresses that fall on or around my knee. If you are looking for a shorter dress this may be a bit long. I wore this to an intimate wedding and it was a good choice since it wasn't too fancy or not fancy enough. Great choice.

Simple but Elegant
I wore this dress to a baby shower and could not have been happier! I usually wear a 12 and ordered the 10 and 12. I probably could have worn an 8 because it was a little big, especially in the shoulders, but the 10 worked just fine. The fabric is great for winter/fall because its a little thicker. The dress was delivered without any damage and was very good quality. It had a lot of stretch which is good if your in between sizes. I would defiantly recommend to rent!

Great dress! Very comfortable and fit perfectly. The zipper did stick a wee bit so I had to get help from my husband. When it arrived the black detail had a shiny look to it. Unexpected but looked great.

This was the perfect dress for our first Thanksgiving as husband and wife with my family.
I rented both the 6 and the 8 for this past Thanksgiving. Both fit, but I have wider hips and long legs, so I went with the 8 for the length! It was the perfect dress for my conservative Aunt and Uncle's country club! I got tons of compliments on it and wish I could keep it! The purple is a little itchy, but you get used to it, or forget about it. I was worried about the sleeve hitting at an awkward length, but they were great! I only gave it 4 stars because it was a little itchy.

Great fit, kinda ho-hum look
I'm a size 10 and this size 10 fit me perfectly. I needed something rather conservative to wear to a very nice dinner and then a small NYE party with friends afterward, and this was conservative. Was nice to have a touch of color and not just black but this look is pretty ho-hum. Looked great with black tights and black heels.

Rented this for NYE - it was perfect! Fun & formal, but more coverage for the cold!
Fits true to size, but the fabric is very forgiving. I'm usually a 4 or 6, and I got this in a 6 since I wanted a more comfortable fit. It fit perfectly. I could've probably gone with a 4 if I wanted it tighter, but the 6's cut was classy and still sexy without being painted on. I also thought the fabric was super comfortable - not itchy or irritating, and plenty of stretch to get your dance on. :)

Comfortable, Flattering and Unique
I rented this for Christmas Day with the family, and it was perfect. The material has some give and either the 6 or 8 would have worked, I went with the 8 so I would be more comfortable (the slight stretch was excellent for the eating and drinking that took place during the day.) The pattern was really unique. It's hard to tell in the picture but the black swirls on the purple panels have a slight sparkle to them. I dressed down a bit with flat boots and black tights. Silver jewelery worked great. Would like to own this dress.

The fit on this dress was amazing as well as comfortable.
The dress fit to size. It shows off your curves but isn't too tight and comfortable to sit in. It's great for weddings or holiday parties or just a fun night out. I would definitely recommend this dress.

very flattering
Really flattering fit and very comfortable - there is a lot of stretch since the black panels are a heavy jersey material, I probably should have worn the 10 but was feeling a little lazy and sized up. I wore with tights, so other renter's complaints about the purple fabric being itchy wasn't an issue for me. I wouldn't spend almost $400 to buy this dress (it's not lined) but for a rental, it's a steal. I imagine it looks great on all body types - a really safe bet (and not too short for us in our mid/late 30s.)

Perfect fit - Super Slimming & Sophisticated!
I've gained some weight over the Holiday Season and needed a dress for a Holiday Card Photoshoot and company party so I decided to rent this dress. It did not disappoint! It fit well, and the paneling gave a slimming illusion! Would highly recommend this dress!

Classy and flattering
I ordered this to wear to a Gala I was co-managing, so I did a good deal of running around in it. It's really a lovely dress, and the pattern/lines on the front really accentuates all the right curves. I received compliments and some of the pictures look really nice. What puzzled me was that I didn't feel so great in the dress. The fabric was a little itchy, and it didn't feel like it was fitted in the exact right places for me (i.e. there was some extra fabric in the midsection that bunched up when I had the chance to sit down). That said, it still did the job well and for the price I needed: it kept me looking professional and vibrant for a lovely evening!

Flattering and conservative
This dress is on the snug side - runs true to size, but definitely size up if you're uncomfortable with something extremely form fitting. Even though it was snug, the fabric was thick enough that it didn't cling to the wrong spots so I felt comfortable, even at a more conservative event. I also found the inside to be a little bit itchy but not unbearable.

Unique Chic; masks imperfections!
The fabric on this dress is dense so it masks imperfections nicely and helps suck it all in; it was a flattering cut for my curvy figure with emphasis on creating a waistline. The pattern is funky yet the cut is sophisticated; this is a great option for someone looking for a unique dress that will make an understated statement. Due to the density of the fabric I do not recommend this dress for hot weather or intense dancing as it doesn't breathe and gets very warm!
