Beautiful but runs SMALL
This dress definitely ran very small. I usually wear a 6/8; the size 6 was extremely tight through my hips/thighs and really baggy on top. My friend (who normally wears a 4/6) tried on the size 6 and it was tight through her hips and baggy on top too. Unfortunately, this dress just fits weird and isn't flattering.

TOOOOO Small!!
I usually wear a 4-6 and this dress was tiny on the bottom and huge on the top. I thought it was beautiful, however there is no way that this dress is cut for the average woman's body.

Great color, too big on top
I wore this dress to a fancy cocktail party and loved it, especially the color which is more of a tangerine/red than a straight red. It definitely stood out in a sea of LBDs. While I didn't have problems with the bottom as other reviewers seem to have noted, I did definitely think the top was too big. You need some sort of fashion tape to keep it from opening up and exposing too much.

Requires Work, but Pays Off!!
This dress is very narrow in the hips. I am a pear shape and really had to squeeze to get in.. that said, once in, goodness! This dress, because it is so large on top, really balances out the bottom. No more pear-shape for me! But be forewarned--1) it is tight to get on the bottom (go over your head when you put it on), 2) you will need fashion tape because it is low-cut and quite revealing; if you are small in the chest, you may not want to wear this dress, 3) It is slight see through, so no polka dot undies! Even though the dress was a little challenge to get right, once it was right, it was very right. I got several compliments and turned more than a few heads.

Very pretty. Weird fit.
I really wish I'd read the reviews for this dress because I had the same problem the others had. The top was really big and low-cut, and the bottom was a lot smaller and more restricting than I expected it to be. The picture makes it look like an A-line cut, but the under layer fits more like a sheath. I had to send it back. If your hips/thighs/butt are smaller than usual and you have a large bust, this dress might work for you.

Very flattering. A bit low cut
Felt great in this dress! Very flattering for my shape - covered up my "winter tire." had to use some lingerie tape on the shoulders to keep the wrap from flying open in the front (my bust is small for my overall size / height).

Runs small in hips, big on top
I rented this as my back up dress because I was nervous about the low cut. I am pretty typically an 8 in most dresses, but I could not get this over my hips. Meanwhile, the top was too loose despite me being a full C. The perfect body type for this dress is petite but full bust. A friend of mine who is a 4 and fits that body type tried it on and it fit her perfectly.

It was the perfect summer wedding dress!
I rented this dress for an afternoon wedding. It was perfect. The color was gorgeous and the material was great for travel. The fabric "breathed" which was perfect for a very hot and humid outside ceremony. I got tons of compliments. I did not have the same issues with the fit as others have noted - even though I ordered a size up I probably could have fit into my normal size. I also have no butt or hips to speak of so if you are someone lucky enough to be blessed with such assets than the bottom may be too small. I also didn't have any issues with the top. Although to be on the safe side I did use some fashion tape so the dress stayed in place. I paired it with the Nayla Emerald earrings, Kendra Scott gold bangles, and Kate Spade gold flecked clutch. I could not have been happier with my rental. Thanks RTR!

Not for bigger hips
I was so disappointed that this dress didn't work out for me- I am little in the waist, but with bigger hips/butt. I thought this dress looked like it would accommodate a curvy body type but it definitely did not. It was super tight through the hips and way too big in the waist. Beautiful color though!!!

Feeling confident and carefree.
Even though I was at an over-the-top, super glamorous wedding, this dress managed to get a ton of attention. My husband told me I should just keep it, he liked it so much. It was 95 degrees that day, but this dress was nice and airy and kept me relatively cool. It also makes you easy to spot if you get separated from your friends. The zipper popped off the track when I was pulling it on, so I had a little panic attack, but my friend was able to fix it in time for the event. Depending on the make, I usually wear a 4 or 6, but I had to go up to an 8 in this dress to be able to sit comfortably in it. I agree with the rest of the reviews that it runs small in the hips. You're going to need fashion tap to conceal your bra. This dress is perfect and ready-to-wear.

Gorgeous, but strange fit
I am SO glad that I decided to rent this at the last minute- it was perfect for my country club cocktail party. The color was so vibrant, the fabric was dressy, and it was just young-enough while remaining polished. It does fit strange though (the other reviews are not exaggerating). I am 5'1, 110lbs, size 0-2 or XS and I ended up wearing my backup size 4 (the 2 would not even squeeze close to on). And I had to wear my Victoria's Secret 'Miracle' bra as well as cinch the shoulders to make the top not too loose. But once it was on and set it was FABULOUS and I got a TON of complements. THANK YOU SO MUCH RTR!!!!

Absolutely loved this dress. The only con is that I had to pin the top because the deep v-neck really let the twins hang out.

Beautiful color...didn't fit
This dress definitely runs small. I usually wear a 4-6 and ordered the size 6 and 8. The size 8 fit but the way the top layer of the dress layed did not look right on the hips or the stomach, I ended up not wearing it. The color is beautiful though.

Great color and great fit!
This dress was a bit hit. I felt very comfortable in it. I read reviews before renting this dress though and ended up ordering a 10 and a 12 even though I normally wear an 8 or a 10. I am glad I sized up. The 10 fit well everywhere, except was a bit tight around my backside. I also bought double sided tape because the V is very low, but it was easily fixed. I would recommend this dress for any occasion. Easy to dress up or down.

tight fitting, but worth it!
I wore this for my bachelorette party, and I was glad that I ordered the size up, because the skirt fits very tightly. No stretch, so I had to be careful when I sat down. I loved the way it fit otherwise, and I got a lot of compliments on it. I have fairly broad shoulders, and it fit lovely on the top and had a flattering look overall.

Didn't fit.
Did not fit. I ordered a couple of dresses for different events, and the size 0 / XS worked for those. For this, I saw that it ran small so I was going to order a size 2 & 4. They didn't have a 4 so I was going to risk just a 2. I have a 32D cup and it fit great on top, but would not fit over my hips. I do not have large hips. I wear a 25/26 jeans. Looked really pretty on the hanger though, would have loved to worn it to one of the events. :(

Smallest slip EVER
This dress is gorgeous. The buttons down the back are classic. The belt sits perfectly, as does the neckline. I was so excited to try it on. The slip is absurdly small. I actually lifted the top layer to inspect it to see if I possibly put it on wrong. I didn't. And I noticed that I wasn't the first person with this issue because the seam is so stretched in there from everyone else not fitting in it either. Had to get a new dress couriered over. If you have no lower body, give it a whirl though. Its very pretty.

Curves beware!
Hey ladies, I feel like I must share my first RTR experience -- I saw this dress and immediately fell in love with it for the color and the seemingly forgiving chiffon. While the color indeed is strikingly beautiful and warranted three compliments from the wedding I attended, I think this dress is more trouble than it's worth. First-off, the wedding I attended was 90 degrees+ and while the fashion tape held up well out the door it did NOT hold up against sun and sweat. I ended up using up all my backup tape. Looking back, I felt like I should have gone with a different dress so that I didn't hold back from dancing the night away and didn't have this dreadful feeling that I might find my bright orange self in the the professional wedding photos in the background holding onto my dress for dear life. Also, I agree with most reviews -- due to the constricting inner lining, the dress runs small. Hope this helps!

Horrible fit
I usually order 2s and 4s from RTR, so when I read the fit info on this dress I rented a size 6. The "fit specialists" should not say that this dress is good for an hourglass figure. I don't think any size would have fit me well. My measurements are 36-26-38, and the dress was very tight in the hips, very loose in the waist, and yet the bust was gaping even though I wear a 34C/32D. I noticed someone left behind a safety pin in the bust, but even that didn't help me. There is also no stretch in the material, so there's no flexibility in sizing. This dress seems ideal for a woman with a straight/boyish body type, with double-sided tape to keep the bust from gaping.

Look Out If You Have a Booty!
I absolutely loved the color of this dress! My only complaint was the bottom half fits pretty snug. It's hard to tell from the picture, but there's a layer underneath that was tight. When I first put it on, I thought I hadn't unzipped the zipper all the way, but when I realized that wasn't the case, I shimmied it on. The top part fit beautifully, and the bottom looked fine to everyone on the outside, but underneath, I knew it was snug. I ordered sizes 0 and 2 and had the same problem with the 2. The only difference was the top on the size 2 was really large on me so I stayed with 0.

Reunited with lots of college friends for a wedding and they all loved the dress!
I loved the dress, but it wasn't the easiest thing to wear. I agree with others that this dress ran small. I usually wear an 8 or 10 and the 10 was pretty tight. It was comfortable while standing, but the tight hips made it hard to sit. Also, it was very low cut and after the fashion tape got unstuck after a few hrs of dancing, my bra was pretty exposed.

Beautiful dress, fabulous material. The front is much more plunging than the model shows. I am a D cup size, and I felt way too exposed. The dress cannot be worn with a bra due to the cut. I think it would be PERFECT on a smaller chested/athletic build.

Cute, but too small
I loved this color and decided to rent for my 2nd dress. Unfortunately, they only had a 10 and not a 12. I usually wear a 10, but according to other reviews it ran small, which it did. Since the 10 didn't fit, I was out of luck. It was nice material and a great color..just wish it would've worked :(

Being able to have the next size shipped in time for the event!
I initially ordered a 6 and an 8 according to the size reviews. When they arrived, I couldn't fit the 8 over my hips (I'm curvy in the hips) !! After calling customer service to return them, I was able to have the size 10 shipped to me overnight in time for the event. Definetely call to speak to a fit specialist before choosing a size. ALL this being said, I LOVED the dress. The 10 was still snug on the hips, and required some fashion tape for the neckline (again, curvy in the hips...NOT so much in the chest). In the end, I LOVED the dress on me in photos and received many compliments.

Top is very loose
My friend borrowed this dress as my back up. Three girls tried it on and it was loose at the top for all of us. We are all between 5'3-5'5 and weigh between 125-140 lbs. The size 6 fit us all, but the top was very loose. You definitely need a safety pin to pin the V-neck area together. A low cut bra and no-show underwear is a must! Great color and really beautiful dress for a wedding!

Nice dress, runs small.
Dress is very lovely ALTHOUGH it's not a dress for women with curves. Runs small on the bottom. I had to lift it up to sit and the top portion needs to be safety pinned to avoid an exposure. I ended up not wearing the dress. :/

This dress was absolutely GORGEOUS! It really made a statement and I got sooo many compliments!
Of all the dresses I've rented from RTR, this one is by far my favorite. I'd love to rent it again if I ever got the chance! The fit was great (although I recommend wearing a cami or bandeau underneath-- the cut is a little wide/low) and length-wise it fell perfectly between my knees and thighs; not too long, not too short. Great for every day wear or casual-dressy occassions. Just wonderful!

Perfect for a summer garden wedding!
I received a lot of compliments with this comfortable and fun to wear dress. Loved the pop of color and the breezy fabric. The bust area is loose, so I pinned it to ensure my bra didn't show. I also loved the button detail in the back!

Nice dress, a lot of people told me they liked it!
I went up a size, and I am glad that I did. My biggest complaint is how drape-y the neckline is. It was showing WAY too much chest, so I used double-sided tape to make the neckline a bit higher. Other than that, the color was great, I loved the built in belt, and the fit was good

Beautiful, but small
Love the style and color, but the bottom half of the dress is TEENY! I am petite and have never had trouble with a size 0, but there was no way I could sit in this dress. And for the bottom being so small, the top was almost too big. Sent it back and wore something I already owned.
