This dress flows over the body and feels super comfortable. It is super drapey so I would order a size down if you want to give it a bit more shape.

Great dress! Got so many compliments on it. It hides just the right places. It's a bit roomy, which can be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on what you're looking for. Would definitely wear this again!

For dresses, I vary from 6-10, depending on the maker. While the M looked decent (more drape affect, less form fitting), the S was able to capture just slightly more curvature of the body (but less of the drape). This dress is great for events that require eating (no sucking in! yay!), but it's not ideal during warm weather. Since the fabric is a bit heavy, the gold necklace that is paired with it in the photo felt slightly heavy and burdensome on me-- especially when outside in the summer heat. I would opt for some dangly gold earrings instead. Lastly, I was surprised at how well the piece of fabric that drapes over the arm stays in place. It's a large and heavy enough piece that doesn't fling around just anywhere.

Comfy and Cute
I'm peitie, yet curvy and the XS fit perfectly. Had to drop off at the cleaners for steam press to get the draping just right(wrinkled due to shipping)Great color, very comfortable.*See review for necklace*

Very affordable way to wear designer clothing!
I loved this dress!!! It's EXTREMELY flattering to every body type! I'm a bit of an apple, and this made me look more slender than ever. I received so many compliments in this dress. I kind of felt bad for the bride, since so many people at the wedding where I wore it were making such a fuss over me. (Of course, the bride still shined!) In addition, the fabric is so comfortable to boot! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Stunning yet comfortable dress!
This dress manages to be extremely flattering while also amazingly comfortable. I received both the S and M sizes and ended up going with the Small because it hugged the body better. The fit is so easy and flowy that it gives you versatility to dress up while also looking great on the dance floor and eating to your hearts content. I wore it to a wedding and received tons of compliments! Another plus: the blue photographs WONDERFULLY!

Loved this dress! Great color! I wore it to a rehearsal dinner and it was stylish but comfortable and easy. I also rented the necklace shown with it, and LOVED the way they looked together! Got a lot of compliments!

I loved this dress!! I got so many compliments, but since it does drape over the body, I would suggest getting a size smaller if you want it to be fitted. It was extremely comfortable, and I totally recommend this dress.

Beautiful, bold color. Very easy to wear. Not form-fitting, so if you're looking to show off your figure, this is not the dress. The material is heavy--not a negative in my book, but just fyi.

I'm glad I read the reviews before I ordered this dress, it does run a little large. I normally wear an 8-10, so I would have gotten the Large, but the Medium fit better. The dress is a beautiful color, nice fabric and it is very comfortable to wear. I received tons of compliments, very happy with this dress! It does need a substantial necklace, I ordered the one shown and was happy with it too!

This dress is very dramatic without being over-the-top. The cut is very forgiving, but was a little too loose for my taste. I'm petite (5'6", 110lbs), and I kind of looked like I was drowning in the zero. I would recommend this dress highly for any girls who don't like things to cling too much around the middle, though.

I'm guessing this dress runs large - because I wore it 6 months pregnant and the medium fit me perfectly. I think I would normally get a small. I got lots of compliments and was pleased that this dress really was bump friendly as advertised, and that I got to have two sizes to try on (s and m - and m fit).

Ok, so i was a little nervous about ordering this dress, but one i got it i couldn't wait to put it on. i'm not a small girl. i wear about a 13-14 in jeans, large shirts and usually need a size 14 dress. but the large fit me! with a little room left over, lol. i ordered the medium for free, just because it was free, not because i actually thought i could wear it, but that one fit too, it was just a shorter than the large, and came up a little too high on the thigh for my taste, but i could have rocked it as well. all to say, if you think you are too big (like i did) to wear this gorgeous dress, fret not. the fabric is thick and drapes beautifully, the shoulder pieces will stay on your shoulder or fall off, where ever you put them. RENT THIS DRESS!!!

I wore this to a cocktail/dinner of around 115 people. I'm a size 6 and ordered the small thinking it would be too drapy in a size Medium. The small fit just fine, but was a little to high on the hemline for my taste. I am 5"6...however, it still worked. I received a lot of compliments. The dress is beautiful, safisticate and a lot of fun!

This is the most perfect, comfortable dress. I wore the small, and I usually wear a 6-8 in dresses, so I would say that this runs a bit big. It was a little longer on me than on the model, but still above my knee. Definitely want to rent this one again!!

Absolutely loved this dress -- although it is slightly more purple than blue in person, which was fine by me. The material is top-notch, and I ended up wearing a size down just to give it a slightly fitter look. Wore it with gold jewelry, highly recommend!

I wore this to a friends wedding this past weekend. It was the most comfortable dress. I paired it with the Cara Accessories silver chain necklace. The dress runs true to size but was a bit shorter than I expected. However, I still abosolutely LOVED it! I received so many compliments! I would rent this again.

LOVED this! My first RTR dress. Arrived as scheduled and nicely packaged. I wore it to a rehearsal dinner in March. It was shorter on me than I thought it would be. I wore the XS. The color is beautiful. Lots of compliments. Wore it with big gold earrings. One flaw was the fit across the shoulder was a little snug and could be uncomfortable when sitting. But...it was a definitely a great pick!

I absolultely loved this dress! It was so comfortable and flowed so easily! I wore it to an evening wedding and received so many compliments on it. The color is gorgeous. I paired the dress with nude platform heels and pearl drop earrings and it looked fabulous. I would order a size smaller than you would normally wear, so as to avoid looking a little on the frumpy side. Great rental!!!

I wore this to a wedding with the suggested necklace and recieved so many compliments. I LOVED this dress. I'm currently 5 mos pregnant and this was extremely flattering. The color was true to photograph, and the draping was ideal for distracting from a tummy and not clingy at all. I'd recommnend for anyone wanting to downplay a little tummy.

gorgeous dress, but taller ladies beware! This dress is extremely short. When I took it out of the bag, it looked more like just a skirt. The color/fabric are gorgeous, but I cannot actually wear this to the wedding as initially planned. I couldn't dance without showing my tush. Would recommend for petite/average height

This dress is flattering in every way possible. It is very well made (it's lined and heavier than it looks but not too heavy) and hides any mid-section imperfections. The color is amazing - very vibrant. The dress is sexy without being to tight, low, hi-cut, etc. One thing to note - I decided not to wear a bra with it and it did make me look a little flat but I wore super high heels so I looked tall and skinny so I wasn't out of proportion. I paired it with the Omala necklace and the look was perfect for a night out.

Amazing Dress. Would totally rent this again. The color is beautiful. The fabric was thicker than I expected. Not a bad thing...but wouldn't rent it for a beach wedding or for any outside event in the summer. Really comfortable dress and can cover any flaws.

Wore this to a formal and it was perfect! I got compliments all evening and I felt beautiful. It was shorter than I anticipated, but I didn't compensate for my height when I ordered my size (small). Most of the reviews had said it ran a bit big, and it did. I would normally order a medium, but the small was perfect - I didn't feel like I was swimming in it, but it draped just in the right way. I didn't want to send it back when I was done! As for accessories - I wore it with a pair of nude pumps (made my already long legs look EVEN longer) and the Southern Plantation earrings (listed in the "complete your look". LOVED IT!

The medium size fit, but my mom made me wear the large size because it was slightly longer, and she thought the dress was too short. I wore it to a wedding, and my grandmother apparently also thought it was inappropriate, and my aunt (the mother of the bride) thought it was "interesting". But I liked it.

This was my first time using RTR and I have never been so happy! The dress was amazing and it was so hard to have to return it, I loved it so much! It fit really well, I got an x-small, and it was fitted yet flattering. I highly recommend this dress, you will love it!

LOVED LOVED LOVED this dress. I ordered a S and a XS and they both fit. The XS showed off the body a little bit more but it was a little tight for me under the arm. I wore the S and loved it. I really recommend this dress to anyone no matter what body shape you have. It hides any imperfections without having to wear spanx.
