Perfect dress
Loved the dress but it came with a hole in the armpit and without the belt. Since it arrived after 5pm the day before the event, it was too late for RTR to send me a new dress... My advice, have your dress delivered 2 days before your event.

Another RTR success!
This dress was so comfortable! I am 15 weeks preggo so I was a little worried about the sizing, but after checking the sizing chart and reading reviews I was comfortable that my measurements would be ok with the dress size - and they were! The color was very pretty for a day shower. The dress was a little frayed on the edges but it wasn't that big of a deal. I also recommend taking the dress out of the bag overnight before you wear it so the static is gone by the time you put it on.

Wonderful dress with flattering fit, perfect for mimosa brunch!
The fit is true to size, at least for my curvy form. Just beware - it's short, especially when you sit! Sit cautiously!

My fiance's grandmother said she loved my dress, and she is a hard one to please :)
I rented this dress for a wedding. The RTR stylist I spoke with recommended that I order a size up from my normal size 2 for backup, but by the time I placed the order the size 4 was unavailable. I am glad I got the size 0, because the 2 was way too big throughout. The darts in the bust were hanging down too far and the dress was too bunchy when I tied the belt. The 0 fit perfectly, and I got lots of compliments! It was very comfortable as well. I would love to purchase this dress to keep.

Super Cute! Wore this to work and everyone loved it. Even my BF initially did not like it on the model!
I really enjoyed this dress - I usually wear a size 2 or 4 but the 4 was way too big on me. The 2 was a little better but still large. The armholes are smaller on this dress than most dresses so do take that into account when ordering. My arms are pretty small and at times when reaching it was uncomfortable.

Very Cute Spring Dress
This dress is very cute and comfortable. I wore it for Easter and liked that it gave me a lot of coverage for church. The dress is very well made: great material, pretty color and fully lined. I got a lot of compliments on it! The dress runs slightly large. I am usually a 4 or 6. I ordered both and wore the 4. However, if you have a large bust it may be a little tight across the chest. I am a 32DD and the 4 was slightly tight around the chest.

Loved it!
I got lots of compliments for this dress. I ordered it for my bridal shower and I was super nervous about the fit. I ordered a 6 with my backup as a 4. I am normally a 6, 8, or 10. The 4 fit!!!! It looks great and I felt amazing in it. I also ordered the same necklace that the model wore on RTR and the outfit looked fantastic. My only regret was that I had to return both items.

Lovely and unique
I wore this dress to a fundraiser for work. The event is a brunch/purse auction. I got so many compliments on this dress! The color is gorgeous and it fits like a dream. It hides what needs to be hidden but is still extremely flattering. I ordered it as a back-up and am glad that I did!

Cute and Comfy
It fit okay, but was loose on top and at the waist. The self-tie belt helped fix that, but it was a little bunchy. Over all it looked cute and I got lots of compliments. The length was great -- above the knee without being too short. It was also very comfortable, and I felt confident wearing it. I wore it with the blue sapphire necklace shown on the model and it looked great with the dress.

Color and Comfort great
This is an easy to wear dress. I got the 6 -and it worked for me. The 4 not available. I would not wanted it tight as family Sunday brunch wedding. It is a pretty dress- may be slightly worn. The color is very flattering

I won't rent this dress again, but I will rent from RTR again.
This dress looks gorgeous on the model, and great in other reviews, but it didn't work for me. The 6 was too short, so I ended up wearing the 8 -- which was a little too large in the shoulder area. I wore a cardigan to give it some shape, but I wasn't very comfortable throughout the night.

Very Pretty!!
I loved this dress! The color is just as pictured, a very pretty pink coral and I loved the embroidery. I wore it a rehearsal dinner and received many compliments! I love the sleeves and small details about the dress, perfect with some gold heels and jewelry!! It does run slightly large. But nothing to stress over because the shape of the dress is forgiving to it not fitting exactly right. I loved this dress and would def recommend it!! Especially if you love the color!

Feminine, classic dress
Gorgeous dress overall. I wore this for my graduation. It was not only beautiful, but also a very comfortable dress. I normally wear an 8 but decided to wear the 6 because the dress does run large.

So cute!
This dress is adorable. I wore it to a graduation dinner and absolutely loved it. It is comfortable, the length is perfect, and the tie at the waist is flattering. My only complaint is that the fabric gets creased easily. It does run large so I would suggest ordering one size down from what you normally wear.

"The color of the dress complements your tan so well!" - best complement for the dress and the tan i had just worked on in vegas! :)
I usually wear a size 6 in dresses, but after reading other reviews, I ordered a 4 as a back-up size. I'm glad i did because it fit very comfortably and perfectly. It was loose and comfortable but the belt-tie accentuated my waist in the right place. I loved the detail of seashell design, especially at the bottom of the dress and the end of the sleeves, since it gave the overall look a little more character. I received tons of complements - this would be great for any spring or summer wedding or bridal shower!

I loved all of the compliments I received and I just felt pretty in this dress.
I wore this dress for my bridal shower, which was held outside. It was around 85 degrees that day, and I was hot, but this dress is made of a light material so it definitely could have been worse!I received many compliments on the dress and I honestly wish I could own it. My only small complaint was that neither of the sizes I ordered came with the belt that is in the picture. So instead, I used my own belt that looked cute and gave the dress a little shape.

Fun to wear something "new," a bummer it wasn't super cute on me!
This dress was fabulously cute...on everyone else. The color is great, it's super cute in-person, but on me...it just didn't work out. I ordered/wore for my bridal shower this last weekend (got both the 4 and the 6, wore the 4). I think it may have been the fact that I was/am larger in the chest area, but it just wasn't super flattering on. Everyone else's pictures look super cute, and I think on the right body type, it'll be fabulous!

It was effortless
This dress was great. I'm usually between a 6 or an 8 depending on the cut of a dress and I'm so glad I followed the other reviewers advice and went with a 6. It fit perfectly and was very comforatble (even in the 90 degree weather we had that day!) The color is amazing and I recieved tond of compliments. Wish I could buy it!

I have rented several times from RTR now and everyone is wondering where I get my wardrobe from :)
I wore this for a baby naming ceremony at church. It's a nice dress if you're looking for something conservative. It does run large, so the backup size should be your actual size and order down. There is absolutely no give, but since the dress runs large, this is not a problem.

Sexy but Modest
I usually wear an 8 in dresses, but I'm glad that RTR has the option of sending multiple sizes- I ended up in the 6! I liked that it was relatively modest on top and was shorter (but not too short!) on the bottom. The embroidery and scalloped pattern on the sleeves and skirt were just beautiful. I would recommend pressing the belt that comes with it before you wear it to give the bow a beautiful drape.

Everything was so easy -- will definitely use RTR again.
I am normally a size 10 dress so I took a gamble when the only size available was a size 8...but luckily the dress fit perfectly! I would 100% recommend this dress to anyone. I felt confident, gorgeous, and comfortable all evening.

Cute and comfortable
Dress was a little baggy around my shoulders and upper half. My dress didn't come with the sash, and without the sash, the dress just looks baggy. I ended up wearing a belt with it, which worked out. Most importantly, you can wear a normal bra and don't have to worry about adjusting the girls while you're dancing.

Great Bridal Shower dress!
I rented this dress for my Bridal Shower and was a little nervous because it was my first RTR. I am so happy with this dress! Everyone LOVED it! It does run large like the other reviews state, so I was very glad I ordered a size smaller then the size I normally wear! I will definitely be renting this dress again!

The color was FABULOUS to wear at an outdoor party, it popped brightly against the landscape!
I wish I didn't have to return this dress! It was so much fun to wear however I do wish i had gotten a 2nd size down because the 12 was a tad big on me. However- this dress is ridiculously short; it might be from all the drycleaning etc but I am 5'5" and i could not lean or bend over at all. When sitting, even on the edge of a chair, my lady bits were not covered which made the bridal shower I was attending very interesting... Overall I would rent this again even though it was short.

Very Cute Dress
I wanted to purchase this dress several months ago, but while I was waiting for it to go on sale, it sold out! Other reviewers mentioned that the dress did not come with the sash as pictured, and I thought that the sash did not come as well...however, I realized AFTERWARDS that the sash came in a separate pouch and I didn't realize it. However, even without the sash, I felt that the dress was still very cute. I wore this dress to a wedding and felt that the color and fit were beautiful. Overall, worth the rental!

Too large, RTR forgot the belt
Knowing the dress runs large, I tried to rent the 2 but settled for a 4 because the 2 wasn't available. RTR sent it without a belt, which is critical for a sheath dress, especially one that runs large. When I called to let them know about the oversight, I got voice mail, so I left a message and all necessary info, but they never returned my call to apologize and rectify the situation. I bought a belt at H&M to go with the dress, but unfortunately the dress ran so large that it even looked a bit awkward with a belt to cinch the waist. The dress looked decent, and I was running late, so I just wore it anyway.

Fun, vintage-looking dress
I was going to wear this to my bridal shower, but after trying on a few other dresses, I settled on another. This dress was lovely, but I have hips and a butt, so I needed something that cinched my waist a bit more than the belt offered. I did end up wearing it to my birthday dinner instead. Definitely order a size smaller than you normally wear as this runs large.

Trina Turk long sleeved dress
Wore this to a bridal luncheon. Got lots of compliments, but the sleeves were a bit tight, while the rest of the dress seemed big for a size 0. Loved the look of the dress, but the sleeves made it a bit constricting, while the rest was loose.

My gorgeous girlfriend was married!
I wore this dress for a wedding on 08/11/12 and it was amazing. Unfortunately, RTR did not have the belt for this dress but I took it any way and I'm glad I did. It was so comfortable and it looked great! (well...I thought so lol). Without the belt, I totally should have taken a 4 because with the belt on the 6 it totally would have been 10 times better. I am going to rent this dress again and this time, I hope I get the belt! I included a picture I took of myself in the dress. (much lol's to the self picture taking in mirrors!)

The Perfect Dress
I already have seperation anxiety over having to return this amazing dress! I attending a wedding in San Diego that was outside. Before getting on my flight to the wedding I was told the vendor did not have the belt to go with my dress. I was able to pick another dress last minute just in case but was sent this one as well, and it worked great without the belt! I was told all night that I was the best dressed, and everyone wanted to know where I got the dress from. It was super light weight, comfy, and truly the best dress ever.

Ill-fitting, arrived horribly wrinkled and with no belt
This dress is very long in the torso so you need to be at least 5'4" and evenly proportioned to make it work. It also seemed disproportionately larger in the bust than around the hips. I was very disappointed with its condition - it arrived very wrinkled and did not come with the belt.
