Gorgeous ombre color
I got this dress just to try on. It is true to size, if anything, possibly runs a tiny bit big. I love the flowy fabric and the gorgeous coloring, however, it was just too long for my liking. I am 5'3" and it came to my knee (not nicely above it, but to it) and that just isn't flattering on us short girls. Disappointing because it is so beautiful.

Stunning ombré! Lots of compliments!
I probably would have given this 3.5 stars if I could, but I'm rounding up because it photographs so beautifully. Pros: gorgeous fabric, beautiful color (a bit brighter than shown on the model), really stands out in a sea of LBDs. It can also be dressed up or down considerably depending on shoe/accessory choices. Cons: dress runs a bit big (it was really sort of overwhelming on my frame) and is a little bit longer than I would have liked (granted I am a little on the short side). However, overall it's really gorgeous and eye-catching, and good for a conservative event (like a Southern church wedding). The full skirt is definitely fun to twirl in!

Beautiful dress!
I rented this for a spring wedding and it was perfect! I'm 5'10 and it was still a little bit longer than i thought it would be, so i would size down a little for a more flirty length. I'm pear shaped, and it was a perfect fit through the top, and through the hips. If you have a big bust, it might be slightly tighter up on the top. Overall this was gorgeous and the necklace I rented was a great match!

Thank you for suggesting to go smaller in size, I'm 5'9" and there are hardly any tall girls on here to get advice from! This looked great on you

The dress was both figure flattering, and comfortable!
Although the dress was a little longer than I expected, it was a fun dress to dance around in all night. I received many compliments!

This dress was super easy and comfortable.
The fit was loose enough to accomodate a range of activities but still pretty. It wrinkled more easily than I would have preferred, but if you're only wearing it for a short period, that won't be a problem. It was longer on me (knee length) than the model, because I'm obviously shorter. The belt in the midsection would look best on someone with a more defined waist.

Stood out in a room full of black!
I wore this for a law school "business" banquet and it was the perfect look to stand out from the suits and plain black dresses. It fit perfectly, it was light and I was comfortable all night.

great dress, perfect for a wedding
This was a great dress. I ordered the 10, but wore the 8. There was a lot of room in the top, even with the smaller size. The color is gorgeous and the fabric is great. Just a caution, be careful with your underpinnings, as it is a bit sheer! Also, the skirt really twirls, so, caution with dancing and wind.

Beautiful flowing hand dyed silk
The color of this dress is lovely. I wore this for a photography session outside, and the dress moved beautifully in the wind. It runs true to size, and was a perfect length for my height.

Great dress for a dressy affair at the beach.
Fit great, was very comfortable. Longer than it looks on the model but that worked well for me as it was a rehearsal dinner and family affair. Got tons of compliments. I ordered an 8 and 10 - ended up wearing the 8 and probably could have even gone a size down (but the 8 worked great).

I felt like I was about to have Breakfast at Tiffany's...
Girlish, flirty, feminine. The ombre blue is so stunning at first glance. Work a try for any daytime affair. I wore to work and got rave reviews as well as to church for my daughter's communion mass. I really felt beautiful in this dress and like a one-of-a-kind.

Perfect.
This dress was perfect. I'm very tiny up top but was blessed with a bit of a booty, so the fit and flare style of the dress was perfection. I'm also short, but the length was perfect as well, hitting just above my knee. I think it's been mentioned but the picture really doesn't do the color enough justice. The picture evokes a grayish tone, (in my opinion), but in person it is a much prettier/flattering shade of blue. The top wasn't loose at all, despite my lacking in the chest area, and the bottom was just plain fun to dance and twirl in! Unfortunately, I was having too much fun to stop and take pictures, but I received a TON of compliments. :)

Rented as a backup ... wish I could have worn it!
This dress is so great! I rented a size 12 as a back-up to the Kate Spade wrap-dress I rented. The KS was so great so that's what I wore to my best friend's casual wedding rehearsal/rehearsal dinner, but I wish I had an opportunity in my 4-day rental window to wear this too. A great dress for pear-shaped girls because it fits nicely up top and the A-line is perfect for girls with hips. The ombre coloring is super flattering as well. It also hit just above my knee (and I'm 6'2") so it gives plenty of length to taller girls. I will tell you, the KS dress that I ended up wearing was satin and came to my house practically unwrinkled. I'm not sure what fabric this is but it did wrinkle a lot more so definitely give yourself enough time to steam it (I'm not sure that you can iron it ...) to get the wrinkles out! I will definitely be renting this dress in the future for another event!!

I decided to rent this last minute. I placed my order on Thurs and it was at my house by Friday.
The dress is very flattering. Its also a good length. The dress fit fine around the waist but was a bit large on the top. It was nice for an outdoor summer wedding in 90 degree heat since it was loose.

SHEER! But an absolutely gorgeous dress!
This dress is even more stunning in person. I wore it to a rehearsal dinner and then out for drinks afterward, and I was comfortable the entire time. I wore a strapless bra, but I could have definitely gotten away with wearing a regular one. The colors are so vibrant and the movement of the dress is perfect! The only con I can mention, is how incredibly sheer the dress was. I am amazed that many reviewers didn't even mention it! Like, even with nude undies, you could definitely see what was going on. I ended up borrowing a nude slip last minute from a friend, which saved the day. I would not have been able to wear it otherwise!

Conservative And Yet Very Chic
I wore this dress my my end of the year thespian awards ceremony. As someone who was presenting awards I was required to dress professionally but I wanted to stick out at the same time. This dress is nothing less than a show stopper, I received compliments all night! The fabric falls gracefully to show off natural curves. I would not suggest this dress for shorter girls if they are looking for something above the knee. But overall a fantastic dress!

Perfect for engagement photos
This is a beautiful dress that is perfect for spring/summer. I wore it for our engagement photos in Central Park. The fit is flow-y without being over the top and the ombré coloring looked great in all of the photos. We even made it into the NY times announcements!

Comfortable, pretty and versatile dress!
I rented this dress twice for my 15-year old daughter. She does not like dresses at all but loved this dress and said it is the only dress she'll ever wear so we ended up buying it. The sizing is very forgiving. She usually wears a 2 but the 4, which she wore the first time, was fine too. She even tried on the 6 at one point and it was passable. As others have noted, it is a very versatile dress both in terms of how you can dress it up or down but also across ages. I am 50 and could easily imagine wearing the same dress. The dress is modest and conservative without being dowdy and you can make it more edgy with your styling. Undergarment choice was easy. It's a winner.

This dress is great- although it has straps, be prepared to wear a strapless bra due to avoid showing your straps!

Beautiful color, comfortable fit
First RTR experience and it was great! They even sent a cute pair or shades with the dresses. Pros: Light fabric was nice for hot weather, comfortable fit, beautiful fabric Cons: wrinkles very easily, a little see thru so i recommend nude under garments, and definitely wear a racer back bra style. Also, the top was a little restrictive, so if you have a larger chest, get your second one a size up, just in case.

Loved the ombre!
I wear a size 6 normally and had to wear the size 4. The size 6 came with a missing button, a little bummed but thankfully the 4 fit just fine. I reached out to customer service and they promptly responded to my request of the missing button. Dress is light and comfortable to wear at an outdoor wedding but also easily wrinkles.

LOVED THIS DRESS!
This dress was not only comfortable, but perfect for a hot summer wedding. I received numerous compliments at the wedding and highly recommend this dress. Its loose, but fitting and complimented my body type nicely. I paired this dress with nude pumps and a multi-layered pearl necklace (which I also rented).

Beautiful back-up for my back-up dress!
Originally I did not order this Erin Fetherston dress, but the Tibi dress I ordered (as a back-up) for a weekend event didn't get back to RTR on time, so stylist Talia emailed me to ask what I would like for another back-up dress. I am glad I went with this beautiful blue dress! It was light and flowing and easy to pop off and on with just a button closure on a keyhole opening in the back. The elasticized waist was comfy and would be very forgiving for days when you might feel a little "fluffier" than normal. It was a nice modest length on me, particularly since I decided to wear it to church. There is a white underskirt under the sheer layer, but I did put on a nude slip because I was going to church and didn't know how it would look in the bright sunlight. I highly recommend this dress, and I will rent it again as a FIRST choice for a future event!

light and swingy this dress was perfect for a balmy july wedding.
let's talk about fit...i'm 5'11" and pretty slender, flat chested and straight hipped. this dress was very huggy on my boobs so i'm not sure how it would fit a larger bust but in that instance I'd recomment sizing up. the color is fabulous! i usually stick to a darker palette (navy, black, navy, black) but this wedding called for something a little more summery and bright. the ombre adds a lot of oomph to an otherwise simple style, it was very fun to dance in all night. i really had a lot of fun wearing this dress, the length was perfect and i'd highly recommend it for any summer or springtime event.

Too small in the bust, very sheer, but VERY cute dress.
I rented the 2 and 4 but both were much too small on my bust. The dress is stunning and looks like a watercolor painting, but unfortunately it was just too unflattering to wear. The fabric pulled tight across my back, but then was lose and gaping above my bust area. It was also very sheer, so I would recommend wearing a slip under. Plus side - the dress is well made and looks even better in person.

I wore this for a late summer wedding and it was perfect. The ombre really helped me stand out!
I ordered 2 sizes, a 10 and 8, where I usually wear a 10. However ordering the backup was a really god decision- the 10 was too big! This may have been my error- I haven't purchased a dress in a while, and the fit on this is really quite loose. It was very loose/big on top, but I'm pretty small in that area. The 8 looked great however, and it was so comfortable. I wore spanks as well, and the fabric didn't catch or ride up at all. It was easy to iron and steam, and traveled well. I paired it with a large statement necklace (white) and grey heels, and it was perfect. I definitely recommend this dress!

Had to size up because of the bust fit.... found it to be snug in that area. Because of this the rest of the dress was a little "big" on me. However I seemed to be the only one who noticed!

Tons of compliments!
I am three months pregnant and needed a dress that would fit my little bump, ever growing larger chest, and still look fashionable. This was the perfect dress. It was very flattering and I received a ton of compliments. Make sure you wear a good bra as you can definitely look frumpy if you don’t. Overall it was very comfortable and flirty.

How well do you think this dress would work for a bigger bump? I'm thinking about renting it for an event when I will be six months pregnant.

Perfect, beautiful dress for a humid wedding. BBQ eating totally possible and comfortable.
I'm an eater so it was critical that I have a dress that made me feel pretty but also allowed me to eat a lot of BBQ at a Texas wedding. This dress fit every requirement. Size 10 looked good on me and if I really wanted to binge that would have been the dress to go. But the 8 was perfect. Belt is critical or else you don't look very polished. Got a lot of compliments with this dress. Perfect in humid weather.
