Got complimented on the dress twice within minutes of arriving.

The dress was very comfortable to wear. The fabric is thick. It would have been too warm for daytime in July, but for evening it was good. The colors are really beautiful. My only wish would have been for a petite length.

Great print & color

I didn't wear this dress. It was my back up option. The fit, cut, print and color were fantastic. The primary reason i didn't chose it was cause of the length. It's longer than it looks in the photo and hit me too low on my calf on my 5"4 frame. It's more midi than tea length even w heels. If it was a few inches shorter it may have won out the other dress

Ran a little big. Nice long length for us tall girls!

Perfect Fall Garden Wedding Dress

I rented this dress for a garden wedding in Napa at the end of September. The length was great for me (5'8") in wedges (3-4") but I can definitely see how it might be an awkward length for someone shorter. The fabric is very rich and thick. There is also an lining with a bit of tulle. With that, it was great for a slightly cooler night but I would have miserable in the middle of the summer. The neckline is a slight boat neck and the straps did have bra clips or snaps so I had to go strapless. It also has pockets, which we all love. All in all, it is a beautiful dress. I felt very comfortable and pretty all night.

Got SO many compliments from both friends and complete strangers.

As recommended by other reviewers, I wore a strapless bra -- definitely the right way to go, since I didn't have to worry about adjusting my straps all night long. With the lining, was the right weight for a mid-April evening event in Virginia. Would be too warm for a summer event. Definitely runs big!!

Beautiful dress - absolutely loved the colors!!

This dress was a perfect fit on me (I am 6'2) but I imagine that it might be long on other people. It was so flattering and I received many compliments! Wish I could keep it!

This dress was even better in person. It was so comfortable and glamorous. I got compliments all night. I wear 38H bra and this fit great. The 14W would have worked but I liked the way the 16W fit better. #ladyinred #pockets

It has pockets

It fit great. It has pockets and was long enough that I was comfortable when sitting. I normally wear size 18, but that was way too big. The 16 was perfect.

Stunning pattern, I got compliments all night!

I loved this dress! I found it to be true to size, but the zipper as a bit finicky. Unfortunately the dress I got was a bit worn and pilled in spots but overall I loved this dress. I kept getting compliments all night!

Good luck dress, I caught the bouquet!

I had a great time in this dress at my friend's late August wedding. There was a LOT of thick fabric though, so be warned that its a hot dress. The fit was great but the dress was slightly on the warn side (but I think this was because of the stitching of the fabric). I will definitely rent an Adriana Papell dress again in the future! Comfortable and I felt confident! Plus, who doesn't love a dress with pockets?!

First Event as Officer's Wife

I wore this to my first formal event as a military officer's wife and it was perfect. I felt ladylike in the longer dress, but still fun and colorful. The bust was plenty roomy and the arm holes were comfortable without showing bra. The dress was lightweight and got many compliments. I would definitely consider renting this again.

Magical dress!

Ordered this dress for a charity benefit I was hosting. The dress matched our event decor. The dress made me feel confident and beautiful despite recent struggles with my weight. SO many people (many of them strangers) stopped to tell me how much they loved the dress. The dress felt almost magical.

Super pretty with POCKETS!

This was my backup dress, and ended up wearing it. It was super cute and comfortable. I got complements from strangers, was able to move freely without having to worry about my dress. I've recently gained weight, so am self conscious as well as not wanting to invest in this new size. This was the perfect alternative. It was really perfect for a long day looking great!

Beautiful dress, loved the color and pattern

I'm conflicted on how many stars to give the dress. On the one hand it was gorgeous, fit perfectly and looked just like I hoped it would. On the other hand there was some wear and tear that was visible on the bust (frayed threads) so it looked a little more used than I expected. Five stars for looks, 3 stars for wear and tear = 4 stars overall.

Great color and pattern!

Great color! Like the length below the knee as I am tall. It runs large and I could have done with a smaller size so it hung on me a bit. Got lots of compliments. V in back and way sides tapped a little makes regular bra tricky.

Wore the 16W to a wedding. The fit was great and the dress was very comfortable. It has pockets! I received many many compliments on the dress and I felt like a million bucks! I wear a 40D bra and the bust was comfortable.

So flattering!

I loved this dress! It was so flattering and comfortable. It was tea length on me. The dress design allows you to wear a regular bra which was great! I would highly recommend it!

Beautiful colors and high quality fabric

I loved this dress! I wish I had sized down one. It was large in the straps and bust and as a very busty girl, I usually have the opposite problem, including with this particular designer. I got a ton of compliments on the dress but I would have been more comfortable had it been slightly more fitted. Being a little big also made it just slightly longer than I prefer but overall I loved the dress. High quality thick fabric and amazing color.

Fun party dress

I enjoyed this dress. I will say that it was large in a few areas (top) which made it a bit annoying. I did enjoy the length!

Graduation party beautiful floral dress :)

It was perfect, I have gained some weight so 20 fit me better but I'm usually a 18. The floral was perfect for the occasion and the dress had pockets :) the only problem was the hem didn't lie flat but that maybe it's because it has been used many times. It was clean though and in good condition. I would definitely recommend this dress.

Vibrant color--beautiful for a Fall wedding!

No complaints about the dress, it was a great material, not too heavy, saturated beautiful color, ran a little big when I sized up but fit my body type very well (hour glass with belly I'm trying to hide). It's long so if you are a petite like I am, at 5'1" then this will be long on you. I balanced the length w/ platform heels.

This dress and its pockets were perfect!

The dress ran a little big for me but I think i ordered too big of sizes. It was form fitting up top and perfect for my filler shaped bottom half.

I wore bright pink to a wedding where everyone was wearing black & grey. DIDN'T CARE LOOKED AWESOME!

This dress was a dream! Zipped up like a dream. Boobs looked great. Legs looked great. Bright colorful dress meant I could wear nude/understated accessories and look classy AF. IT HAD POCKETS! Under skirt was fluffy and soft, making it look full and beautiful all the time but also easy to sit in. I typically wear a 18, but so glad I sprung for the optional backup size 20 because that's the one I went with. Size 18 wouldn't have fit my boobs but the 20 fit like a glove.

Great friends !

LOVE this dress and was sad to send it back I got a lot of compliments on this dress and will rent it again. - I might even buy it! The colors are true in the picture. I wore a purple wrap with it and some pearls. 38DDDs fit just fine, and the back wasn't too low for a regular bra. This dress is fully lined, so that made it a bit heavy for a summer event (I wouldn't rent it for an outside wedding in August). I was uncertain about the length based on other reviews but with nude wedges it was just fine. Be careful with accessories as I found the fabric a bit catchy on my bracelet.

Love the dress, but it was too large for me to wear

I can wear a 14 and the 14w was much too large. It also was long on me. If you're looking for red, this seems more purple/pink to me but some of the print is red. Really liked it but I was swimming in it, including the arm holes.

May need to own this one!!

It fits like a glove, gorgeous fabric, it flows beautifully!! Second time renting it first time was for a bridal shower, (I thought it was a bit dressy for the shower). This time was for a wedding (different people). It's such a stunner with the color and so much fun to dance in, it moves beautifully. I just felt gorgeous in it. Wore my hair up and a bit retro.

Nice fabric, runs big.

This was sent as a backup when my preferred dress was not available to ship. Thanks RTR for helping me out - another dress did work! I am a 14/16 top, 16/18 bottom, so usually a true 16 or a 14W fits me great. Based on other reviews, I ordered this as a 16 (not thinking it was really a 16W, because sometimes I think RTR marks any dress larger than a 12 with a W, so it is hard to tell what is a 16 and what is a 16W with any confidence). This dress was HUGE on me. way too big to wear. Also, very long - it does claim to be tea length, so I wasn't surprised it was longer than usual, but it really is a very long dress - I am 5'10 and it was lower-mid calf. Fabric is beautiful. I think if this were my size I would have enjoyed wearing it.

LOVED this dress. Got tons of compliments all night.

Great dress. Very colorful, very elegant and swingy - you could puff it out even more with a petticoat for a 50s or 60s style (it has a layer of tulle under). Ran big, especially in the waist- I'm normally a 14/16, and the 14W was big on me. Very comfy, loved the pockets.
