Perfect fit & classy!!
Loved this dress, the color is incredibly bold and I got many compliments. I loved this dress because I don't alway like to expose my tattoos at formal events, and this dress reveals the reveals the perfect amount of skin. I'm 100 lbs, true size 0, 5'5"... the only thing I didn't like about the dress was the black hanger straps kept popping out of the dress.

Got so many compliments on this dress.
Very comfortable, stretchy, easy to wear. Loved it. Elegant without revealing too much. Cons: those darn black straps everyone keeps talking about. Had troubles keeping them in.

Perfect!
I loved this dress. The fabric was thick, with a decent stretch to it. The color was gorgeous. Great length. My only criticism is that the hangar straps kept creeping up the front during the night, and is visible in some photos. To accessorize, consider the Regal Affair necklace -- they look fantastic together!

This dress was perfect for a five o'clock wedding.
This dress fit like a globe. It was beautiful. I usually order a 16 but this 14 was perfect. It is a great fit for curvy women. The material is very forgiving and stretchy. I may have to buy this one!

The dress fit well and was flattering, but the material was heavy and not the most comfy.
I wore this dress for a Derby party, and the material was heavy for an outdoor event with 82 degree weather. Also the sleeves were very tight, but I do have larger arms. The boning in the sides did pinch and hurt sometimes, but otherwise it was a great dress, very flattering and stood out. The color is so vibrant.

Great color! Great fit!
I ordered the 4 and 6. I usually wear a 2 or 4 but wanted to make sure I felt comfortable since it looked to be a bit form fitting. The 4 fit perfectly. The material was extremely comfortable. This dress was the perfect length, color and style for a ocean side wedding in April. I received many compliments and felt great in this dress. I would recommend renting this one.

Stunning dress, BUT...
This dress is stunning! I received compliments all night long from friends and strangers alike. The vivid color pops, and the fabric (2 layers) is forgiving for any little bumps or bulges. I also had no problem going braless. I followed everyone's advice and sized up for my backup. I'm glad I did! I'm ordinarily a 4 or 6, but I rented a 6 and an 8, and ended up wearing the 8. As many have noted, the sleeves are cut quite narrowly. If I could have pieced together my perfect fit, it would have been the body of the 6 and the sleeves of the 8. There wasn't much difference between the two sizes, so in the end, the determining factor was the neckline: the 6 kept flipping over, but the 8 stayed securely in place.

Classy & Sexy, the perfect length and snug fit with a color to turn heads
I was attending a fundraiser where the guest speaker was a Chicago Cub so I wanted a dress in "cubbie blue"! The style is perfect for a fundraiser with a mix of standing conversation and sitting at a dinner table. Likely not ideal for dancing due to the structure in the arms. The arms are snug so if your arms are muscular or you'd rather hide your arms, you may be uncomfortable. It fit me perfectly but was definitely snug! The 0 stayed in place all night and fit better due to my small bust size. The 2 had too much fabric on top for me. And someone must have listened to previous reviews because the hanger straps were removed from my version so I had no issues with keeping them tucked in. I received so many compliments on the color and the style. Definitely a stand out from black dresses, and the length and sleeves made this snug dress classy and a head turner. Wore my hair slightly up to the side which was ideal for the strapless neckline. I would own this dress and recommend it to others with a similar frame. (I typically wear a 0 or 00 in dresses from White House Black Market if that helps you figure out your size at all.)

I wore for my best friend’s rehearsal dinner, and it was a great choice.
I received lots of compliments and felt great in the dress. I ordered a 12 and 14 and wore the 12, it had plenty of stretch and fit my hips well for a slimmer style.

First timer! Loved this dress
I had a great first experience with RTR. I loved the color and shape of this dress. I'm 5'8 and the length was perfect. The only problem was the arms were very uncomfortable as they had wire in them. The off the shoulder look was perfect, plus I was able to dance fine. However, I was very happy to take the dress off at the end of the night and my arms were tender for a few days. Also, I saw other reviewers mention the hanging straps getting in the way, so I pinned them in the front and had no issues. Overall, great dress!!

Beauty is pain
This dress was a solid 4-star. The dress itself is beautiful and the color is amazing. However, there is boning down both sides that dug into me whenever I sat down. And as other renters have said, it is fairly tight and restricting around the arms. As other renters have also said, the hanger strings do have a tendency to hang out of the dress, but my bf and I found that if you make a little knot at the end of each string, they stay inside- after we did this I had no issues whatsoever with the strings. Overall, great dress but uncomfortable.

Trendy and uncomfortable
This dress is fun, great blue color and flutter sleeves with the off the shoulder is def on trend. I ended up wearing the smaller of the sizes shipped, I thought I would need bigger because of my hips. It was a little big in the chest area with the smaller size worn, but I always have problems with my hips needing more room. The dress is forgiving for curvy women. BUT I would NOT rent this dress again. I can deal with a little bit of uncomfortable, but this dress legit hurt me. There is boning on the sides and it basically stabbed my armpit all night. I had a big bruise after the night was over, and it was not comfortable to sit in at all. I would not recommend it- not worth the pain despite the cute look of the dress.

The color is really beautiful and true to the photos.
I am typically a size 4 so I ordered the 4 and 6 - and the 4 seemed true to size so that's the one I went with. Fit is great and the color is really beautiful. My only complaint is that the sleeves around your bicep can be a bit tight which is why I gave it the 4. Overall I liked the rental and would recommend it.

Crushed the cobalt!
I absolutely loved the color of this dress. I originally wanted this dress in black but I am SO glad I went with the cobalt! I would say it for true to size. It was a little more form fitting than what I typically wear so I did use spanx underneath, but I got so many compliments on the style and color The off the shoulder and bell sleeves made this style super fun! Many many compliments on this one!

Loved this dress!! The arms were a little restrictive when trying to sip a cocktail, but of course I figured it out :-). The hanging straps showed the whole time which was a huge bummer, but overall the dress was awesome!

Stunning picture worthy dress!
My regular size 10/12 was not available but made this one work with spanx and a strapless bra underneath. The material is thick but stretchy so you can go with your regular size. To prevent the straps from popping out I pinned them down with a small safety pin. I got so many compliments that I'm now sending referrals to many of the coworkers for RTR!

Great fit, one major flaw
This dress fit great and was pretty comfortable. I would have loved it but the hanger straps would not stay inside the dress... No matter what I did they popped out all night and strangers would come up to me to offer to tuck them in... def ruined the dress for me.

Loved the color and silhouette!
This was my first off-the-shoulder dress rental and I loved it! The color was a nice rich blue and the sleeves were fun. The cut of the dress was flattering. My only complaint is that the front of the dress would not lay completely flat, allowing the hanger loops to peek out (if you look closely at my picture you can see what I'm talking about).

Wore this dress to late afternoon wedding...it was perfect.
As with other reviews, the straps that the dress hangs from kept showing...needed to be tacked down. Otherwise very comfortable. I was going to wear a different dress..."Milly" but upon recommendations from stylist I only got it in a 4....hips too tight, so wore the 6 in this dress and perfection!

classic and elegant
The fit and style of this dress is classic and elegant. I was complimented all night on the color and cut. It's gorgeous and comfortable and never slipped down which was a concern of mine with past experiences of off the shoulder dresses. The boning in the right side did seem to poke through occasionally but it's not anything that was bothersome all evening. I would definitely rent it again!!

Colon Cancer Charity Standout!
Went to a charity event to support colon cancer awareness. The ribbon and theme is a cobalt blue. There were so many sexy ladies in RTR dresses from the site, but I continued to get compliments as the dress was sophisticated, sexy, and complimented my curves well. I typically wear a 13/14 but the 14 just was not as form fitting. I was able to wear the 12 with no spans and felt it was very tummy flattering. The only issue was that because I'm more of a 13 it was a little tight around the arms and the interior boning down the sides of the dress poked me when I sat. Nothing that would prevent me from giving the dress, color, style, and fit five stars. Plus my boyfriend, featured in the photo, loved it so much he wants to help me in renting my next dress!

Perfect fit, snug, forming and so much fun!
Love love LOVED this dress! I got a ton of compliments both at the wedding I wore it to and in the photo I posted. I've gained a bit (ok a lot) if weight recently so I've been hesitant to wear anything sexy - but this dress really made me feel like I was bringing my sexy back! My husband LOVED it and now I'm even debating buying it. I would give this ten stars if I could. Wish the black version was available for the next wedding I'm heading too! (It's all sold out!)

This is a truly flattering dress! I got complements all night long, and even the next day :)
Fit perfect. Was able to dance, no problem, but not raise my arms up too high. This didn't bother me. The color is electric blue, and I wore it with nude strappy sandals. I'd love to own this dress, but would definitely have it hemmed a little. I am 5'5 and it was past my knee, as shown in the photos.
