Great dress!
A beautiful dress! everyone went crazy. After having a baby a year ago, this helped make things feel slim! Very low cut in the front, so you need a bra with a very small, low middle.
SarahMay 11, 2012
I have a bit of a tire around the mid section. Would this dress help hide this or make it more obvious? I'm 5'3" and weigh about 135# and am 36D. What do you think?

Hi Sarah, this dress has ruching around the center that helps conceal the tummy.

Very forgiving and flattering!
I rented this dress in a size 6/8 and wore the 6. I have a larger bust so it is difficult to determine what size will work best for me. The material has give to it so i really could have worn either size. Also, I think that the color is more attractive in person.

Flattering dress
Rented this for a cocktail party. Nice color and flattering fit. Be warned though, the fabric is thin so you should wear the proper underwear.

Fit perfectly and got a lot of compliments. A little lower cut than I expected, but enough fabric to cover without mishap.

Elegant
Perfect dress for a wedding -- elegant yet spicy. The only recommendation I would provide (which another reviewer mentioned): wear seemless panties, unless you want your undie lines to be visible.

Joyful dress
Flattering fit. I got a lot of compliments. The fabric is very thin so I wore Spanx underneath. Go one size up as a backup.

Disappointed
This dress was so cute that I was excited to put it on! The fit was great and very flattering. Unfortunately the fabric was so thin you could see completely thru it. I tried numerous things underneath it but you could see everything including my skin. I could not wear the dress and was very disappointed. Thank goodness I had a back up dress in my closet that I was able to wear instead. I have rented several dresses and never had a bad experience. I will continue to rent and hopefully this will be an isolated incident.

Beautiful dress in person
I was very pleased when I received this dress in the mail. The color varies depending on the lighting from a bright tangerine/coral to an almost pumpkin/amber color. The length was great for me and I felt appropriately, but fashionably, dressed for the wedding. I agree with the other reviewers that the skirt fabric is thin and requires the right undergarments for a smooth finish.

It was so easy their costumer service is outstanding. RTR is a very organized business. I also love the freebies.
I wore this dress to go to a summer wedding and it was fantastic. I felt so elegant and comfortable. I got a lot of compliments. It was my first time renting a dress and I have to say it was so easy and stress free. I would definitely use them again.

Perfect Dress for a Wedding!
I received so many compliments on this dress at the wedding I went to, even from the bride herself. It was a gorgeous, vibrant color (very true to the color in the photo) -- and it really stood out in the crowd. It was also a very flattering fit, and true to size. I'm normally a 4, so I got the 4 and the 6, and ended up wearing the 4 with no problem. I highly recommend renting the necklace shown in the picture, too... I got tons of compliments on it, and it really completed the whole look. The only thing that took me by surprise was that the hemline is different than it looks in the photos. It's not a smooth hem... but more of a "shredded" look, with threads hanging down about half an inch all the way around the hem (including the wrap part). Looks good, though, but different than the photo.

Cute but runs small
I could not fit in the 4 and could not zip the 6! I could tell that this dress was going to be very slimming/flattering on me, but unfortunately I was unable to wear this dress.

Great cut/color, but clingy!
I loved the cut of this dress, and the color. The cut is extremely flattering, with the under-bust band hitting the narrowest part of the body and creating a slimming effect. However, the fabric was a little bit of a worry for me. It's very thin and clingy, meaning that the dress really shows every lump and bump (the fabric especially clings at the rear.)

I am from Philly and traveled to Texas for this wedding, I got a number of compliments from locals who wanted to know where I got the dress, I told them all about RTR and they were very impressed with my idea to rent of the amazing service i told them I have received!
I wore this to a Texas wedding on Labor Day weekend, I got a lot of compliments. It was a HOT indoor/outdoor wedding but the dress wasn't too heavy so I was able to stay comfortable. It drapes flawlessly, and perfectly complimented my boyfriend's Navy blues :) (I had to take a bathroom/mirror shot because the air was too hazy to get a good outside pic!)

I wore this for my cousin's August wedding. It fit great and was a fun bright color. I did place a small pin to minimize cleavage. Very happy with this dress choice!

Fun dress!
This dress was great to wear to a wedding. I'm top heavy so it covered enough up top for church, but was fun and sexy enough for the reception. It's a little more orange than the picture shows, but its still really pretty.

The experience was easier and better than I expected- it was my first time!
The dress fit! I am voluptuous- and about 185-190 pounds- and it worked for me! I am typically a 12-14, and was very happy that I could fit the 12 and it zipped up just fine. The dress fit well and felt good on. I wished the front was open more just to show off my assets a bit more (wink). I wore the dress all night long and never felt like it was too snug or uncomfortable. If I knew any other rentals would fit this well- I wouldn't have hesitated renting sooner for other occasions!

The color was really pretty and it fit well. However, the fabric was not forgiving at all so you need spanx. I wore it to a wedding, it fit nicely.

perfect postpartum dress!
I wore this to a wedding three months after giving birth and while nursing, this was the perfect dress to flatter my postpartum figure. The dress fit my enormous chest in a flattering way without showing too much cleavage.

Easy and cheerful
I wore this for a summer rehearsal dinner. It's a bit more bright orange than I am used to, but it was a fun change. I specifically wore it because I am pregnant and needed the stretch. But even without my bump, it would have been fairly revealing of curves. Just an FYI.

This dress was fantastic--it was perfectly cut, and I was sad to send it back!
I wore the 12, and it was a great fit. I loved the color and cut of the dress, and it was really flattering. The neckline is actually cut pretty low, but the fabric stayed in place when I adjusted it.

Great color, great fabric, great cut
This dress was great. I felt better in it earlier during the day though (the fabric seemed to stretch some and I started to feel a little self aware). I would recommend wearing spanx. Also - the color is amazing and bright!

LOVE THIS DRESS
This was beautiful. Appropriate for a dressy work cocktail party, but still pretty and sexy enough to be interesting and stand out. The deep V looked to me in the photo like it might be pushing the boundaries of work-appropriate, but it managed to be an interesting detail without showing a ton of cleavage. Several people told me that this was the best they've ever seen me look. I was heartbroken to send it back!

Love this fun dress!
I wore this to an evening corporate event, so I needed to wear a tight tank top underneath to hide some of the cleavage. I wore it in Vegas in February, so I chose to wear knee-high brown boots with it. I loved the dress.

Comfort and color - great for virtually any occasion!
I wore this dress for a career moment, and got many compliments on it! The color is very flattering, and the dress is very comfortable. All I did to make it business presentable (because that v cut is low!) was to add a small black tank underneath. I found a necklace was unnecessary. If you're pear shaped like me, Spanx are a MUST- this shows off every feature. If you have a small backside, you do not want to wear undies with this - panty lines will show. I fit in the size 4, but felt the 6 rested on my thighs better. One more thing! One detail I did not notice when I ordered the dress was that there is a little fringe on the edges of the skirt. At first I panicked, thinking that the dress was frayed. In fact it gave the outfit a fun, softer note. If I could afford it, I would buy this dress in a heartbeat because it is so versatile. Overall, I loved it!

Gorgeous dress!
Loved this dress... this dress looks more red in some of the photos but it's definitely orange... All the draping and ruching makes for a very flattering fit... It works for pear shaped women like me who are bigger on the bottom... And definitely wear Spanx... the fabric is typical of jersey-type dresses and will show your underwear...

Beautiful color, perfect for hiding the tummy area, great for any special occasion.
The seams of the dress are frayed. This is a small detail to the dress that you'll either like, not like, or not mind. Personally, it didn't bother me but felt it took away from the dress. It's almost like the seamstress forgot to hem the dress. To me, details make a statement, this detail isn't worth having on the dress. However, you can't really notice it unless you're up close. Not a major flaw, but it was unexpected when I received the dress and saw it.

So may compliments!
This dress fit perfectly and was very comfortable. It was also flattering with the color and design. The fabric showed every undergarment though. I still wore it and no one said anything about seeing anything but spanx are a must and a bodysuit would probably have been best. I would rent it again though as I liked it that much!

RTR sent this me as a last-minute back-up to a dress I had ordered that had became unavailable
So comfortable! Cute and very flattering cut. Didn't end up wearing it for my event bc it was a bit too "summery" for a January wedding. I will definitely consider this dress for a summer event though!

Beautiful. Loved this dress. Comfy, sexy, awesome. My husband was sad I had to return it ;) I'm probably a mix between an apple and hourglass shape (I do carry more weight in my midsection). Apple ladies, nothing a little spanx couldn't keep in place. Will definitely be renting this one again.

I ended up not wearing this dress because it was far more low cut than I realized.
I had rented this dress for a diplomatic event because it was somewhat conservative but it didn't fit well and was too risque for the company.
