I wasn't able to wear a bra underneath because the straps of the dress were thin at the top. it fit perfectly otherwise in the chest and waist area. i am short (5"0) so it was kind of longer than I expected; it came to my knees. I wore it to #lawschool #prom and had fun in it!

This dress is to die for! It was sexy but still classy and perfect for NYE paired with some sassy accessories. I ordered the 0 and 2 and the 0 was very close to a perfect fit. I'm a 32 C and needed to buy a padded bra to make the bust of the dress fit. Loved loved loved this dress! Want to own it!

Great dress! Tons of compliments and lots of gawking!
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I rented the size 4 and the size 6 for a New Year's Eve party. Must have tried both of them 10 times before I decided to go with the 4. It was pretty snug, but more flattering in the chest area than the size 6. The size 6 was more comfortable since it wasn't as tight fitting but it just didn't seem to hold my chest in place like the size 4 did and not quite as flattering. No bra needed. Definitely a lot of cleavage. Wore a black patent leather belt and black patent leather pumps. Fun and flirty! Expect a lot of stares, gawking and compliments!

Ideal Party Dress
Size worn: 12
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I rented this for my birthday celebration and received TONS of compliments. It runs a bit larger than other designer clothes I've worn so if you're between sizes, order the one down. I did a quick fix to shorten the straps and the dress fit perfectly! It was so cute and the fabric is actually shiny, which I didn't expect but looks great on camera. Perfect party dress when paired with a cute pair of heels.

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I wore this for a New Year's Eve party and it was perfect. It's fun, comfortable, and so flattering for curvy/hourglass shapes. I felt it showed the right amount of cleavage, but it is the most low-cut dress I've ever worn. The fabric is beautiful and looks luxe. The fit made my waist look small and flared out to hide my hips and thighs. Super flattering!

An elegant and classy dress, that still provides the right amount of va-va-voom.
Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
After being a RTR member for two years, I finally took the plunge and rented this number for an anniversary dinner. My boyfriend and I were going to a very formal dinner, followed by a show and I wanted to look elegant but still sexy. This dress fit the bill. I ordered my normal size 8, and it fit perfectly. The fitting in the bodice worked to my advantage, as I felt it held the girls in well and I could go braless. For the record, I'm a size 36B, so bigger girls might want to be aware that there will be a bit more cleavage going on than I had. My only complaint on the dress (and it could have been a fluke?) was that the seams through the waist and bust were a bit itchy. Not something I couldn't live with, but it did make for a slightly uncomfy evening. Other than that though, I loved this dress and will be renting again.

Can't begin to describe how amazing this dress fits, it looks beautiful and projects such an edgy elegance. This dress radiates confidence and is a showstopper so prepare to break some necks. Great choice if you're busty and petite and pretty much any shape, can't go wrong with this choice.

Wore this dress to a movie premiere and it was perfect.
Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
Low cut and was a bit tight in the bust area for me because I have a broader back and may be a bit bustier than the ladies the cut of the dress was intended for, but it's a darling dress that has a slight sheen and just really looks glam and edgy at fun all at the same time. And since the skirt is fuller, no need for spanx.

This dress is great! Really comfortable and easy to wear but I still felt sexy! Fit pretty perfect! I had to use a little wardrobe tape on the back because it puckered a little bit on me. I wore a Nubra and it was fine. I was worried the fabric would look cheap but it was great and really fun! So glad I rented this dress it was exactly what I was looking for!

Great dress...LOVE the fabric. Very comfortable and very easy to wear. I ordered both the 4 and 6, but went with the 6 to accommodate my 32DDD's. I was able to wear a strapless bra just fine...no tape necessary. This was a great playful, sexy look without being too over the top.

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size

I loved this dress in photographs, but while I loved the style and fabric it was just a no go on me. The shoulders were wider than mine and the torso was longer, creating saggy lines between the natural waist and shoulders. If I were 5 foot 7 with smaller breasts and slightly wider shoulders, this would have been perfect!

I wore this dress to a charity holiday party. It was fun and a little sexy. I felt amazing in it.
Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
This was a back up dress sent by the go-to girl as the dress I wanted was not available. I loved it!! I do think that I am more of an 8 although I wear a 10 in anything that is tight around the bust. I am 151 pounds, 5''6", 36C, and I normally wear a 6 in pants and an 8 dresses. I could have worn the 8 in this dress as the straps were loose. This dress is stunning and I honestly did not get a photograph that was good enough to post. The fabric is beautiful and shiny. My entire RTR experience was perfect and am ready to do it again!

Great construction provides supportive, perfect fit.
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The fabric of the dress is just heavy enough to lend structure to to fit. I found that I didn't need the stick-on bra that I had bought for it. It holds the bust in place in a very flattering way, and the cinched waist made for a beautiful shape. I loved feeling contained, but not trapped in the dress. The V back and front are sexy without being trashy. It's a classic with a few fun twists. I got lots of compliments and second glances. It made the night so much more fun!

I ordered this as a back up and didn't end up wearing it. The fit was tight through the bodice & waist which meant no bra was needed but it was a little more revealing than was appropriate for this occasion. The shape is fun & flattering with a bit of a retro flare.

Average dress, nothing special!
Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Fabric is very thick and heavy, and the dress is not as metallic as it looks in the picture! It's almost silver. I am just about 5'5" and wore a size 4, the dress pretty much came down to my knees - yikes! Also, if you are not the most genetically gifted in the chest area, the bust of the dress may gape a little bit. I'm sure this dress would be fantastic to some, I just felt like a little bit of a grandma in it.

I loved this dress but ended up wearing a different dress just due to the amount of cleavage visible in this one. Probably not a big issue for most but my chest is on the larger side. My fiance loved it too!

This is the perfect LBD for a night out.
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This dress is perfect for girls with hips. I am usually an 4/6 on top and a 8/10 on the bottom. I rented a 6 and an 8, but ended up wearing the 6. It fit like it was made for my body! The princess seaming on the bodice made my chest look awesome, while the full A-line skirt flowed smoothly over my hips. It also didn't make me look hippy, but if you are more narrow on the bottom this will make you look curvier. The v-neck is low, but I was able to wear a demi-cup strapless bra with no issues. Larger chested girls may want something with a little more coverage.

Lesson: only order the dresses that have my backup size available.
Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I made the mistake of ordering this dress even though only a 4 was available. It would not zip all the way up, and I had to send it back unworn. Fortunately, RTR was able to get me a dress in time for my event, although was nerve-wracking to have to very quickly order another dress to get here in time. I was also frustrated that RTR did not call me back or respond to my emails until halfway through the day. I did like this dress enough that I have ordered the 6, along with another dress that they are sending for free since this one didn't fit. Nice touch RTR.

This was a great dress! The fabric is a bit metalic, which made it stand out more than the average little black dress. For the most part, it's true to size, but it did run a bit small in the bust. It's also a bit low cut in the front, but definitely appropriate for a party/night out. I would definitely wear this again!

Perfect except....
Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
After much searching and reading reviews, I chose this dress for a Holiday party. It is very cute, great material, but I discovered that the top part runs a little small. I am a 32D and in the past have not had any issues fitting into a 6 or sometimes a 4, but this was so tight in the bust area, my husband even mentioned I looked uncomfortable! So be aware if you are ordering this dress to take the size of your frame into consideration, I am fairly small framed and my normal size was a tight fit! I think if I had ordered an 8, it would have been too big! Otherwise this is a GORGEOUS dress!!

This dress was really cool; the lines on the top contour the torso very well, and the material adds a little pop because of its reflective quality. In addition, I didn't end up having to wear a bra because the top was snug enough. Wore this dress with gunmetal silver wedges.

Would really give it a 3.5 if I could. This dress was just a little too big and longer than I wanted. Liked the material and silhouette... almost wore it to my event, but in the end I went with something different. Would definitely recommend a statement necklace with it.

Love this dress! I am usually a 0 or 2 and wore the 0 to the fall event. Recieved many compliments. Although the dress looks like it hits mid thigh it was a little longer. The V neck is also not too deep. Did wear a stick on bra as the back has a V as well and since the material is pretty thick it worked out great. Loved this dress!

I rented this dress for homecoming, and I would say it was a success. I ordered a four because I know that I have a bigger butt, but that may have been a misjudgement on my part. I should have ordered based on my flat chested-ness because, as you can see in the picture, the dress is not too fitted in the bottom half. So it was a little large in the straps and bust area, so I needed to use tape. But it all worked out in the end! The dress looks really short in the picture, but that was not the case in real life. It probably hit about mid thigh. The material is lovely and the dress comes in right at the waist which was super flattering. And even though it was a deep v-neck, I did not think it was too provocative in the slightest. All in all, I highly recommend this dress, though I wish I had gotten it in a two. However, this does not mean that the dress runs large, it simply means that I misjudged, as I said.
