Made me feel like I walked out of an episode of "Mad Men."

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The dress is a beautiful scarlet color and looks even better on than it does on the hanger. There were plenty of compliments on it during the night. I did have quite a bit of trouble getting it over my bust so that is definitely something to be wary of. If you're a little hippy, it also tends to bunch up around your midsection as you move/dance so there was some tugging to do to keep it straight. Despite this, I still recommend this lovely lady-like dress.

Fun and flirty, but loose on top

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Wedding
I ended up not wearing this dress to my event because the fit was a little awkward and unproportional. I think this could be a really cute dress on the right person. My picture doesn't look bad, but to get it to remotely fit up top I had to wear a really padded bra. I have a very hourglass shape, so my the dress was pretty loose and baggy through the waist, and really tight through the hips. The size 2 fit my hips and thighs better, but was ridiculously loose through the bust and waist. I think this dress would fit someone better if they weren't quite as curvy. As soon as I started walking around it would ride up pretty badly. I would've have a very hard time dancing in this dress and not tugging it down the entire night. My husband loved the dress and thought it was very sexy and fun, but I would have felt very uncomfortable and restricted. It would have been great for a cocktail party or an event that didn't involve much moving around.

This is one dress that I wish I could keep! This photo does not do it justice. It gave me curves which, unfortunately, I normally do not have. It's very structured and has a nice thick material. Even though it was pretty long (below the knee), it was still really sexy probably because it really hugged my body. I'd definitely recommend this dress to anyone and everyone!

Definitely a Head-Turner

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
I wore this dress for a Valentine's date. My intention was to go a bit understated and the features of this dress seem to offer that. Including the higher neckline, capped sleeves, and just slightly above the knee length; however the combination of the red color and the sculpted form fit drew generous attention, so if that's not what you want . . . beware! This dress seems to run true to size, I normally wear an 8, but went with the 6 as my size was not available, the 10 was too loose. The 6 was form fitting, yet still comfortable. My only concern is that the skirt did ride up a bit after sitting, so the 8 probably would have been perfect. All in all, I loved the dress and afterwards my boyfriend hinted . . . he wanted me to rent it again.

The fabric is very thick and the color is nice and bright. The side zipper can be hard to pull up. It is a very form fitting dress but I figure that very few people have perfect bodies so why bother trying to hide imperfections. Just wear the right undergarments, stand up straight and let the bottom ruffle draw the attention. I'd rent it again!

I wore this dress to speak at an AHA gala with my husband. I loved everything about this dress. I especially enjoyed being told how gorgeous I looked when I walked in the door. The dress was comfortable to wear, snug in all the right places so as to be super flattering. The material felt great. I loved the length and the little frill at the bottom. Wish I owned this dress!

Gorgeous, but narrow in the hips!

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I didn't end up wearing this dress for my work event. It's absolutely beautiful - well made, flattering construction, and quality material. I'm a pretty solid size 12, but I'm also a bit hippy and this was simply too tight in the hips/butt area for me. The dress description states "stretchy fabric allows comfortable room for full hips", which I suppose is the case, if you don't mind a very curvy look for a sexier occasion. If you're pear-shaped, I'd definitely recommend sizing up. But again - a gorgeous garment! I'm bummed I had to send it back. :-(

I rented this dress for a photo shoot in downtown Memphis with my two adult children. I wanted a great family photo and planned the primary colors to contrast with the city backdrop. This red dress was perfect! Loved the cute skirt and gorgeous red color. It really pops in our photos! The dress fits snugly, so even though I often wear a size 6, I definitely needed the size 8 in this dress.

This dress is snug, RTR was right in recommending one size up. The 4 was skin tight, 6 was way more comfortable. Dress is beautiful and made to accentuate curves. Sorry, do not have all done up pics as it was a religious ceremony, but it fit like a glove! Again, many compliments all day long. I would have loved to own this dress because it can be worn for so many occasions. Go RTR! :)

This dress is so beautiful! I loved the color and the mermaid/flouncy bottom. I wore a size bigger because the event I went to was more conservative. Definitely size up if you don't want the dress to be too form fitted. My only concern with the dress was that it was made for a tall person. The shoulder area was too big in both sizes and the waist was too low for my petite frame. If the dress was in a petite size, it would've fit much better.

Awkward fit, too tight in hips, lose in chest.

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
This dress is gorgeous and well made, but it runs both too small and too big. I am a size 2, and it was way too small for my 36" hips and way too loose in my 34" bust. (I also ordered size 0, but I couldn't fit in it). Had I ordered 4, the bust would have been even more loose. I still loved wearing the dress with a stuffed bra :)

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size

I wore to this a fundraiser and received compliments. My figure is top heavy with relatively slim hips. This fitted dress is cut for a balanced hourglass figure, so on me it was a bit tight thru the bust and a bit roomy through the hips. I still felt that the hourglass seaming did its part to visually balance the two 'zones.' The fun flounce at the bottom made every step a little party. The fabric was nice -- a bit on the heavier side so it wasn't overly clingy. This was my first RTR experience, and I'll definitely try it again.

This dress was very comfortable and fit great. My only issue was just that it only had a small zipper under one of the arms, so getting it on and off wasn't the easiest thing. But it was a nice stretchy material, and loved the way it felt, even after several hours. Would recommend!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small

I wore this dress for a 30s era costume party. Because it is extremely form fitting my usual size would not fully zip, so I was glad to have ordered a size larger for my backup. I still needed help with the zipper, but once I was zipped in, I was so comfortable. I was able to sit, dance, and have fun with no problem. Everyone complimented how pretty the dress was, especially my boyfriend. He has actually requested I rent this dress again for a date night.

The dress was really nice and had great material, but it definitely ran small. I wasn't able to size up since an 8 wasn't available, and my usual size 6 was just too tight in the hips and mid section, so I didn't get to wear it. I may try it again one day.

Form fitting, not as demure looking as it seems.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I am normally a size 2-4, but the 4 was too tight to zip up. The 6 was larger in the shoulder area, but wasn't any roomier in the hips, so it didn't quite me right. It hugs your curves and will look better on someone 5"3 and taller, not too petite. Great dress for a tall, thin woman. The fabric is thick and heavy, great for Autumn. Sexy dress on the right person. Way too bootylicious looking on me. If sexy is the look you're going for, get this dress. I wanted a red dress for a more conservative event, so it didn't quite work for me. If it coasted over my bum, instead of totally defining it, I would have loved it.

Festive and sexy, but conservative enough for a work function.

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This dress is absolutely beautiful. The detailing is stunning & really elevates the dress from "pedestrian" to "wow." The ONLY problem is that the fabric is unforgiving, if you're curvy. When I was standing still, it was comfortable & flattering. But if I moved, at all, the front of the skirt rode up & bunched at the crotch . . . NOT flattering. I wore this with low-heeled boots, because I was going to be standing for the entire party (minimum 4 hours) & could not be hobbled by high heels. But this dress definitely looks best with sheer nude hose & high (3"+) heels. Note: The fabric shows pantylines & bra lines, so you'll need smooth-fitting undergarments. Since I was wearing control-top pantyhose, that took care of the bottom. I'm glad I was sent a size up from my usual, because the 8 was just too snug.

This dress is made of thick material and is very sturdy. It hugged all the right places.

Great cocktail dress for any semi-formal occasion. Hugs your curves and makes you feel sexy.

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
This dress is beautiful and I received lots of compliments, but I would not rent it again. Here's why: CONS: - The material is heavy, but still somehow thin. As mentioned in other reviews, this does show lines (as well as bulges and dimples...). Just be prepared with seamless undergarments. - The dress constantly rides up. I spent half the night pulling and tugging at it to make it hang the way I wanted. - Even though the rest of the dress fit like a glove, the chest area was a bit floppy. I could have worn a heavily padded bra. All that said, the dress was really beautiful. I typically wear a 2-4 (depending on cut) and the 4 was by far the best fit. The material is a lovely deep red. I'm short, so the bottom flounce hit me at the bottom of the knee - exactly where I wanted it to. The fabric stretches to your curves and made my butt look great. Overall, a fantastic look!

The color of the dress was perfect. The fit was tight. There is no give in the material so it shows all the flaws. It is a heavy, rich material. I don't think it was a great fit for my shape but it was a nice dress.
