Perfect for an outdoor summer wedding!
This dress was great for an outdoor summer wedding - bright and colorful and not too heavy. The colors were beautiful and fun in person and it was a great dress to dance the night away.

I fit well and I will wear it again. I had to put a cardigan over it for modesty reasons.

Free flowing and light
Beautiful fit in the chest and waist. Arm holes a bit snug. Material feels lovely against skin. Dress hits perfectly at the knee. Great for afternoon cocktail party!

I really like this dress but I felt I looked a bit frumpy in the mid-section- no fault of the dress.
It is gorgeous and so comfortable! I would recommend this to anyone!

Great dress! It's comfortable, flattering and I received a million compliments!
This dress fit nicely. I normally wear a 14 or 16 and this was a tad loose in the waist, which is a nice surprise because I often find rented dresses to be too small. I added a belt to cinch it in a bit and it was fine.

didn't have my size but I took a chance and rented the bigger one. Unfortunately it didn't work out.
Rented this and another dress for a wedding, LOVED this dress but it was too big (there wasn't any smaller available) so I had to use the other one unfortunately.

The color and pattern were breathtaking!
The fit was spot on. I loved that the lining was form fitting as to not add additional bulk to the dress. Plus, I could spin on the dance floor and not worry about showing off more than I wanted to!

This dress was perfect for an October wedding in Arizona!! It was fun but at the same time elegant enough for a wedding. Worn with Kate Spade Neon Montage Earrings that I also rented from RTR.

Beautiful and fun floral print!
This dress is lovely -- with its wide shoulder straps and almost boatneck neckline and great knife pleats, it's very elegant and covers well; the print is gorgeous. The colors are more muted than in the picture, looking more coral and sage green. All in all, it is a perfect dress for an outdoor wedding or other event, while also not being too dressy for every day wear. I found the waist hit low on me -- if I owned this dress, I would have had the shoulders shortened, as there is room in the armholes and the whole bodice needed to be an inch shorter or so. The dress does fit loosely.

I wore this for my 35th birthday party and felt even more special in this dress. SO flattering!
It was slightly tight in the arms but easily zipped up for me. The twirl factor was amazing! The dress was very flattering on my curvy body. I'm well-rounded everywhere and it gave me a nice waist line. I want to buy this dress! The 16W was also a good fit even though the arms were still tight.

Well, I didn't wear it....
This is the dress I originally wanted to order for a KY derby party. My husband suggested I ordered another (I loved it), and i got this as a free backup when the back up to the other dress was out of stock. Thanks RTR - that is a cool policy. Anyway, the dress that I loved in line, not so much IRL. I'm on the border between 14 being a little small on me and 14W being too big. This was a little too big, esp in the bust , and I am chesty. The gathered waist didn't flatter either maybe it hit me In the wrong spot. I would suggest, if you rent, wear heels. Because of where this W size dress hits - it would look a little fuddy duddy with heels. I think on the right body, the side print would be slimming, which is why I was attracted.

Great dress for a wedding!
This dress was very comfortable! I wore it for my friend's wedding. I liked the neckline was high and I can wear a normal bra with it. I do think it made me look a little bigger, but was perfect for the wedding. It was a great fun color that you don't see often. The fit was true to size and I ended up fitting perfectly into the 16. There was enough room for my chest too. Beautiful dress!

Beautiful Dress, just too big!
This dress was very big on top. I'm a 40D and it was falling off me. RTR came to my rescue and sent me a new dress though! I would definitely rent again just in a smaller size. The dress was very pretty!

Great garden party/summer option
Perfect for a summer wedding. Lined, but not hot. I opted to add a belt since it was a tad big in the waist (which I would say is true to the designer). Good experience!

Didn't wear. Both the 14 and 16 were too large and a little frumpy on.
Too big. Bust was huge. Might have worked with a belt.

Dress is prettier in person!!
This dress was absolutely gorgeous! It does run true to size. I'm very busty so I felt a little constricted in the 16, but I was still able to wear it with little to no problems. The skirt has a lot of flow, couldn't help myself but to twirl as much as possible. :) I will definitely order it again, I'll order the next size up though.

Was too big
This dress runs a large. I could have tried the 14 possibly and I'm usually a 16/18. It was just big and unflattering, but this was a back up dress that was sent to me and I wanted to be safe and ordered the 18. Should have asked for the 16 as well. I just don't think the dress would have looked good on me either way, but the color was very pretty!

The ease of having two sizes to choose from.
The fit was pretty loose. I had always worn a 20W in RTR, but having recently lost 25lbs I wasn't sure what size Id be. I rented the 16w and 18w. The 16w fit great, there was even a little extra room around the waist. The dress was very comfortable and so fun to be in. I got lots of compliments and felt beautiful! It was the perfect dress for my best friends bridal shower.

Stylist Review!
This is a great dress for summer! The colors are bright and tropical. It has a nice relaxed fit. It does run a little larger, though, so I would suggest sizing down if you want a more of a snug fit. This style would be great fora more casual event, like a weekend getaway or something like that! The length was a little longer than I expected, so shorter women should be aware of that.

Well Endowed Ladies, Rejoice!
Me: 200 lbs. size 14 dress and jeans. Bra size: 36N. Yes, N cup. This dress runs big, I have huge boobs, and this was a tad big in that area. It never looked bad and was incredibly comfortable. Didn't pull around the arms, didn't show bra under arms, the back wasn't tight. I would def rent again if it was available in 12 or 10. The wast is fitted but still very large, I would probably need a 10 in the waist area, but it still looked great. The colors were amazing and totally popped in a sea of black attire.

Pretty dress, good for taller people.
I liked this dress, thought it was really pretty, The size fit fine, not too small on the arms or tight on the tummy, length was a bit longer on me (below knee). I liked this dress overall, the fit was great, but it just wasn't flattering on me so I did not wear it. This would probably be cuter on someone a bit taller and with a belt.

Wanted a summer-y dress for a friend's wedding, and this was it! Got compliments all night!
Fit was slightly looser than strictly necessary, but worked well for all the dancing. Was very light, and perfect for a late summer wedding!

This was the perfect dress for the SoCal wedding I attended. I felt so pretty! Lots of compliments!
The fit was a little big on top, but that's because I'm on the shorter side and have a shorter torso. That being said, I was extremely comfortable! Was able to dance all night! It was the perfect dress for an Orange County, CA wedding. So many of my girlfriends and other wedding guests commented on how much they adores my dress. It was perfect!

Lots of compliments on this great dress!!!
The event was a daytime fall wedding, so I needed something dressy but not too formal. It was also the first time my boyfriend's extended family was going to meet me. So, I needed to look perfect. This was great for that kind if occasion. The orange was a little lighter than I expected - it bordered on salmon colored. But it was easy to match colors to and it was comfy and fun for many hours.

I felt amazing in this dress. I received so many compliments. I was very, pleased!
I was not sure if the 18W would be the right fit (based on the comments of other reviews). The 20W had a much looser fit overall than expected, but not noticeably so. If I should have another occasion to wear this dress again, I would choose the 18W.

Made me look too wide around my hips
I loved the style of this dress until I tried it on... the skirt has so much fabric that unfortunately it was not flattering at all, and made me look even larger/wider than I really am. I returned it and did not wear it.

This dress really helped me feel amazing and feminine, and I haven't felt that in a while!
If you're busty (I'm a 40H according to Prima Donna) the dress might pull around the armpits a bit, but it's worth it and not enough of a problem to take away a star. I carry a lot of weight in my stomach and I can't stand that about myself and this dress really helped take attention away from that area. It was comfortable and flowy too so it was easy to dance in! I wore the white sweater because I hate my thick arms. I appreciate the amazing help I got from the RTR stylists.

Perfect for a wedding guest :-)
This dress is so perfect, I got compliments all night! I am considering purchasing it I love it so much. It was easy to wear, fun to dance in, and I felt it was the perfect color scheme for a summer wedding. I also added a picture of the Kate Spade earrings I rented because they matched beautifully, like they were made to be worn together.

Compliments and Comfort!
Rarely can I put on a dress and have it fit so nicely - no arm hole issues, no hide-the-tummy issues. It was a little blouse-y on the top, when usually I have no problem filling out a top. I would have liked to add a belt for definition, but there are no belt loops. Lovely flowiness, and compliments from strangers galore, usually on the print and color. I wouldn't say this was the most flattering dress, I felt like it added a couple pounds, but it was certainly fun to wear to a summer wedding.

The dress was lovely
The dress was very pretty, but it didn't seem to fit fantastic. When I would tug the dress down so the waist was in the right spot, it would make my hips look big.
