amazing color; boring shape

this dress is such a beautiful pop of color, but is really shapeless on. the fabric is thin so it doesn't really hug curves—just kind of hangs.

Gorgeous, fun dress that will make you stand out!

I loved this dress! I ultimately ended up going with another option, but that was my second pick. I'll likely rent it again for something else. Fit was pretty true to size. I'm typically a 6 and this was a 6.

Perfect pop of pink for a spring event!

I chose this as my back-up dress since there wasn't a "long" size available for my rental dates and the dress didn't have many reviews yet. I loved this dress so much when it came in the mail! The length was a little shorter so I would've needed to wear flats or order a 4L, but it was such a great shade of pink and so flattering!! I will definitely be renting this dress in the future in a longer size!

Amazing pink color

I didn't get to wear this because it was too big for me. Color is amazing and bright in person. It's simple and classic - the top is plain and super straight across but the slit makes it fun. I think it does run long FYI.

So many compliments!

Dress fit perfectly and was so flattering. It is very thin material though -- impossible to wear underwear or spanx without any lines. Ordered a long and it was the perfect length with heels. Loved!!

Beautiful, standout dress for a formal!

I loved wearing this dress! I received so many compliments on it and the fun pop of color. It was super comfortable to wear- it fit in all of the right places on my petite figure without being too tight. The slit makes it fun, too! I would rent this dress again! Only con was that it was a tad long even with tall wedges on for me, but it was manageable!

Great bright pink and not too long for the short folks.

It def runs true to size, fabric isnt forgiving at all so there is no way anybody could wear this too snug without seeing any dimple your behind might have. I wore a boy short strapless bodysuit to have all very smooth. It was I am 5'2 and weigh 130 and an athelete with an hourglass shape.

The dress is absolutely stunning and the color is gorgeous!

I wear an 8 and I'm tall at 5' 9" so I got the 8L which was great with heels and the right length. It was a tiny big snug but it has movement too it so it worked. I wore a spanx like slip under it and you couldn't see it. The 10L fit a tiny bit better however the seam on the side (right at the hip) was coming unraveled so I couldn't wear it sadly.

THE COLOR!

I received this dress with a couple of small stains on the front and the silicone strip on the inside was peeling off, but I ended up wearing it anyways even over the replacements they sent because THE COLOR! I was going to a charity gala where the theme was prom and this color was too perfect not to wear. The dress fits true to size - fitted but straight. Stays in place so you aren't tugging on it all night, but it does wrinkle/crease very easily.

So flattering and fun!

This dress was so great! I received so many compliments on the fit and color! I ordered a 6R and 8R. I normally wear a 6 but this dress is very form fitting so I sized up to the 8 so it was not as tight on my stomach. The slit in the front was also not too high. Absolutely loved!

I had my prom and the dress was perfect for that. I stuck out because of the color and I love that.

Make sure you get it in your true size. I got a 2L and the length wasn’t perfect but it was big on my waist. The color was stunning and very flattering. I would 100% recommend this to anyone!

The dress was very pretty and a great color but not of great quality.

It fit large as I usually wear a 6 and the 4 fit very well. The color was very bright and the strapless cut was flattering.

This is the dress that RTR is good for

The color of this dress was the real standout quality! I say its the reason RTR is worth it bc I would never buy a dress in this color because I couldn't rewear it, so renting is a perfect way to wear something daring like this. The cut was simple and classy and let the color do the talking. The chest fit me well, no slippage but definitely wear a strapless bra with it as the material is a little thin and shows all. The slit is great, the length hit just at the floor with 4 inch heels (I am 5'4) . The only complaint is that the stomach and hips were a little loose and definitely could've been tighter. My backup size was 4 and I didn't even try it on. The 0 could've been a better fit in the stomach but I'm afraid it wouldve been to small for my chest and the back clasp to close, so I stuck with the 2.

Love the color!

Fit is true to size. I'm 5'5" and 130 and wore the 2. The fabric does show every line so I had to wear spanx with it, but overall good experience. Very pretty color. I received lots of compliments!

great color, ran a little large

I am usually a 6 or 8 but the 6 was slightly large so next time I would get a 4, but overall the dress photographed really well and was a attention grabber !!

Black Tie Option Wedding

This was my backup dress, so I did not end up wearing it. The dress ran large. I got a 2 and it about fell off of me. I also did not think it was very flattering on my body type and did not hug my body the way I hoped. However, maybe if I got a smaller size, it would work better!

Comfortable and Beautiful

The dress was a brighter pink than the pictures, which I really liked. I tried on the 10 and it fit great. I have some curves and the dress fit great over my hips. There were few stains on the front of the dress but not too noticeable.

It was a beautiful color! I got so many compliments all night!

The fit was big around my bust area which caused me to have to keep pulling it up ALL night! The rental process was a great experience! I’ve already recommended it to a few friends! I can’t wait to rent again.

Great color and worked amazing as a maternity dress

At 34 weeks pregnant, it's hard to tell whether it ran true to size. I researched past reviews to decide on sizing up to an 8L (usually a 2-4). The material has a LOT of stretch, which makes it a great maternity option. Also it was very comfortable to both sit and dance in. I am 5'7" and wore 4" heels, and the long was almost too long. I think I probably could have gotten away with a regular length. The color was AMAZING and I got a lot of complements on the dress all night. I would definitely rent it again, and might have kept it if it was a size that would fit me post pregnancy.

Gorgeous color & comfortable fit!

The color is gorgeous! This dress is super comfortable, and makes such a statement! No statement accessories needed! I normally wear a 4, and opted for the 6, because the bust fit better in the 6. In my opinion, shapewear isn't an option because you are able to see the seams, but the dress is flattering! I received so many compliments!

Big on the bust, but fits everywhere else

Went to a black tie wedding. The color is definitely a very bright purple-ish pink. It fit me everywhere perfectly, but was big on the bust (I have a smaller chest) so I needed to pull it up quite often. The silhouette is beautiful though.

This was my first renting from RTR and if I could give them 6 stars I would.

Initially went with a size 2 and it was big, but thankfully RTR replaced the dress and overnighted a size 0, which fit perfect!! I am 5'5'' 118lbs and usually wear sized 0 and 2, pending on the brand. The dress is beautiful, the quality and the color are great. Love the dress and LOOOOVE the service provided!
