The dress was very comfortable and perfect for an afternoon wedding!
I had read that this dress ran small, but the size 4 (my usual size) fit perfectly, although bustier ladies would probably want to size up. The dress was very comfortable and perfect for an afternoon wedding. I wore it with nude pumps and a statement necklace. The lining looked a little wrinkled due to curves when I tried it on in front of the mirror, but you couldn't tell at all when I was out and about. The color is very flattering! Great first experience with RTR!

Great dress for day time work event
As other reviewers noted the lining tends to slip below the lace but this wasn't too terrible to fix as the day went on. I wore this for a day time awards event for work and paired it with nude heels. It photographed well. Not sure I'd rent again, it worked but I wasn't ecstatic about it. True to size.

The process was so easy. It was my first order. I loved having a new dress to wear for my occassion
Fit perfectly in the bust. Was a bit tight in waist, but if I had worn spanx or something to suck in my gut it would have helped, but I feeling lazy.

Amazing dress - received so many compliments!
I have nothing bad to say about this dress. I love it. It runs a little large - I'm usually an 8 and the 6 fit perfectly. It is form fitting yet forgiving at the same time. I would buy it if I could.

Perfect length for tall girls!
I wore this to a graduation and wanted a dress with modest length but not way down to my knees. It fit really well and the color is bright in person. It was perfect for the occasion but I wouldn't rent it for an occasion where I was going for a hotter look

I got a lot of compliments on this dress!
I had read that this dress ran big, so I sized down. I should have stayed with a 6, but I only had a size 4. The 4 fit but was tight. It was a beautiful dress though! Perfect for the rehearsal dinner I attended!

Summer Blaze!
The color of this dress is to die for! My mother had picked this dress out for my little sister to wear to a wedding reception, but ended up wearing another dress since this one was a little too wide. In my opinion, it was a little too old for her age (18), but others could probably pull it off better.

Lovely
Did not wear this (didn't have my backup size ready to ship in time) but loved it! Tried on the 4 and could have worn it but I have a feeling the 2 would have looked better. Without trying on the smaller size it's hard to definitively say but felt like it ran large. Great color. I'm planning on renting this for another wedding later this summer.

Pretty dress but size up for large chests
This dress is really pretty-- it looks just like the picture! However, I found my normal size to be pretty tight around my bust, so larger chested ladies may want to size up. RTR didn't have a larger size available for my dates, so I made it work, but it's something to keep in mind if you're thinking of ordering this very cute & classy dress!

Wore both dresses!! haha!
I don't fit well in dresses with waists. My waist is 2" higher than dresses allow for generally. My boobs tend to be also, so I generally go for dresses that I can easily cinch the straps up 2" on. I risked it this time, but it worked out. I started in the size 8, because it was a touch longer and not as snug. I wore that to the ceremony, and then between the ceremony and the party, my friend told me to try on the 6... which ended up making me feel much more confident, even if it was shorter. It wasn't easy to 'get down' at the wedding with such a short dress, but I'm fairly modest, and I survived! Note that I'm probably pretty pear shaped. I'd recommend this dress for more "straight and narrow" or even 'athletic" builds. It didn't hinder my hips, but I would have loved a belt with it. I was traveling, so.... no belt added on for me :) The high neckline made it so I didn't need a necklace - i went with long earrings instead, and the lace felt fancy enough. In fact, for this particular wedding, I was a little extra-dressed-up in my opinion!! (I could have gone with a nice maxi, lol)

The color was great. Fit was modest, yet sexy.
Fit was good. Was going to wear the 4, but it made the lining look too bunchy. In fact, I thought the lining would have appeared bunchy in pics. ( even with the 2), but it didn't at all. Photographed how I hoped it would. Also, the lining was about an inch shorter than the hem of the outer part of the dress. I saw a review where someone said the lining was longer than the outer part. Which was definitely not the case!

Comfy for dancing!
I usually wear a 2 or 4 in dresses. The 4 was huge, and the 2 was great. Comfortable and left room for dancing comfortably! It was a very light dress, which was perfect since it was 95 and humid at the wedding! I didn't think it was the most flattering on me, but I got lots of compliments :) I would definitely recommend.

Lovely! Work appropriate and pretty. Color is a deeper, richer red than it appears in photos.
Comfortable and easy to wear. Only gripe is that the liner tends to bunch in places like the buttcrack. Dress also looked a bit worn in places--it's not in totally new condition. I'm usually a 4/6, and the 4 was slightly roomy. Overall happy with it though! Was complimented.

Wore this for my med school graduation. I wish it hadn't been covered by my gown the whole time.
I normally wear 6-8, though I may have lost a little weight recently. The 6 was too large and the 4 fit perfectly, so I'm glad I sized down for my back up. It was beautiful and relatively comfortable. I didn't have any real problems with the lining, and the color was true to the photos. It may not have been THE most flattering for my body type (I have a pretty square torso), but I thought it worked really well. Normally I gauge a dress based on how many compliments I get, but I wore this under my graduation gown almost the whole time so I couldn't say this time.

Comfortable but flattering and lots of compliments!
I loved this dress for a conservative after-graduation event. I could move easily with no fear of bra straps showing, etc. but it was still eye-catching and slimming. I have a pear shape, and it wasn't tight on my hips. It fell just about an inch or so above my knee. I'm a mom, and it was just easy to wear. I highly recommend this dress!

Great color, photographs well. Can wear with a normal bra.
Definitely runs large, I'm glad I read the other reviews and went with a smaller size. Doesn't look like much on the hanger, but looks great on and in photos. I had read a previous review of the size 12 which mentioned that the liner hung lower than the top layer and was bummed that RTR hadn't fixed that before sending it to me. My Mom had to hem the liner in the front, but it looked great after that.

Just "meh".
Maybe it's just my skin tone, but I was not in love with this dress. I think it looks great on some of the other girls in the photos, so I'm pretty sure it's just me. I tried on two different sizes and both left me feeling "blah". Also, the lining seemed to be peeking out from under the bottom of the dress, which I wasn't very fond of. Didn't end up wearing it.

I really like the crochet overlay. It is pretty and elegant.
Pros: Classy, attractive, and looks like an expensive dress. Cons: The color is red (I thought it would be peach), and the dress is clingy. It needs Spanx to even out bumps!

Ordered a backup dress, ended up wearing it for church!
Dress runs large, I loved the color and the quality was top notch. I just felt it didn't flatter me that much. I am curvy and I don't think where the dress cut, along with it being a little big, worked very well on me.

Didn't wear - too large & lining too long
I rented this to wear to a baptism where I was the god mother. I read reviews and knew it ran large. I typically would wear a 12 (on a good day), wanted to rent a 10 & 12, but the 10 was not available. The 12 came and was large. I contemplated making it work, but then I noticed the lining rand longer than the dress. Too big and the extra lining made me look sloppy in this, so I opted for something else I had in my closet.

Color pops and photographs great!
I normally wear a 6/8, but got a 4 as a backup size after reading other reviews. I fit into the 4, but went with the 6 because the 4 rubbed a bit under the arms. Pretty and comfortable - plus the red stands out great!

The dress was lovely and appropriate for the business party I wore it to.
I could have worn either the 6 or the 4 but went with the 6 because it gave me a bit more room across the bust. The dress was very pretty and in excellent condition. Festive but appropriate for the business party I wore it to.

So many compliments!
I wore this to a September wedding and received many compliments. I usually wear a size 8 or 10, but based on the reviews I was confident I should order a size 8. It fits pretty true to size, although I would have liked it a *tiny* bit tighter, but it was still great. The dress has enough give so it could probably fit several body types. I also brought a black blazer with me to the wedding in case it got cold and you can totally dress it down for a work event.

So comfortable and chic!
I ordered the 6 and the 4, but I normally wear a 6. I tried the 6 on first and thought it fit OK. The nude liner was peeking out below the coral crochet hem, so I would have had to pin or fashion tape it to match. I then tried on the 4 and the hem was perfect and it fit as well, so I decided to go with the 4. I received so many compliments and felt fantastic all night! I would definitely recommend this dress!

Loved this dress. Was worn to a fundraising event. Got a lot of compliments on it.
Fits well. Needed help zipping it up. wore with black heels and used a black handbag. Not too short, I was able to sit it in and still feel comfortable. Showed off my figure, which is hard because I am pretty straight up and down. Would recommend this dress! I liked it because it had color and was not plain, as my usual dresses are.

I rented this dress with my free dress birthday credit (thanks RTR Pro!) and wore it on a date with my boyfriend. It is SO comfortable - no worries about over eating and not being able to breathe! I also love the color - it's bright and unique without being flashy or loud.

Pretty dress, exactly as it looks
I wore this dress to a fairly casual outdoor wedding. I think I would have worn the 0 if it was available, but the 2 fit OK. The dress was very sweet and appropriate for the occasion. Not a showstopper, but it's nice and there were no surprises. It looks and fit pretty much exactly how it does in the picture

Beautiful color & comfortable dress!
This dress fits much as other reviewers have described. The fabric has a nice stretch and it's such a comfortable dress. I am usually between a 6 and an 8, but the 6 fit me very well. I was swimming in the 8. The color is a beautiful corally-red. I wore nude shoes and a simple necklace. The only downside was that the crocheted/lace top layer would catch on my bracelet, so I had to take that off for part of the evening. I didn't want to snag the fabric or create a tear. It's a lovely dress, highly recommended, and I would rent it again.

The red lace was beautiful on
I rented this dress as a back up for a wedding I attended. I got it a size up from what I normally wear since I wanted to be comfortable and I'm typically somewhere in-between an 8 and a 10. While I didn't wear it to the wedding, I got the chance to wear it the following night, when my husband surprised me with dinner reservations at a nice restaurant. The dress was perfect for a night out, and when paired with a jean jacket and some wedges it didn't feel overly dressy, but I could see how it could be dressed up for a more formal occasion. I loved the fact I could wear a real bra, and that there was no need for spanx underneath. It was great for a spontaneous date night.
