Fabulous color!!!
I got this for my bridal shower and unfortunately the size I wanted was destroyed by the previous Renter (c'mon ladies, be nice to the dresses!!) so it didn't come in my size. This one was a little too big so I didn't end up wearing it but it is truly a beautiful dress. The colors are absolutely fantastic. The belt helps cinch the waist so it can subtly show off your figure. I think sizing down is a good idea. Perfect for a shower, outdoor wedding, picnic, night on the town. Nude heels are perfect with this to show off the legs.

Nice summer Bridal Shower Dress
I wore this dress for my best friend's bridal shower. It ran a little big, which was good because I run more like a 12/14. It was missing the matching belt, so the dress didn't quite look right, and unfortunately it was too late to get another dress sent out. It did a run a little short, but I received a ton of compliments!

SO many compliments on this dress.
I wore it to a friend's baby shower and it was the perfect tone. I paired it with a white jean jacket since it was April and it went together well. Almost everyone at the shower asked me about the dress. It's a fun pop of color that I don't normally have in my wardrobe. I didn't wear or need a belt like some of the other reviews mentioned but if there was one drawback, the elastic at the waist was kind of itchy.

LOVE IT!
The color is FABULOUS! The fit around the arms is so flattering; the way it lays is incredibly flattering. I LOVE this dress! I'd buy it in a heartbeat if I could...(it did show up without the belt but I don't think I'd have used it anyway. I added a cute brown leather belt)

Perfect for Spring
I wore this dress to my fiance's law school graduation. It is conservative enough for a family affair but the bright color and lower cut back make it fun! I got soooo many compliments! The only downside is that it did not come with the sash. I'm very disappointed that RTR didn't check to make sure all accessories were included before sending it out.

This dress made my party great because this dress stands out.
I selected a larger size to accommodate the Winter gifts my midsection collected over the past few months. However, I didn't need it. The cut of the dress gives you extra room to sit and dance in. I received so many compliments and was happy with the vibrant colors. It's definitely worth checking out.

Adorable dress, so many compliments!
I wore this dress for a day full of events: two bridal showers (one for myself, actually), a fundraiser, dinner and bachelorette party. I felt great all day- and received tons of compliments! I absolutely loved the color. This dress is very comfortable and "flirty". I would recommend to anyone. It's a little short if you have long legs, but otherwise the belt works to for your size just right. I am normally an 8 but went with the 6 because the top is pretty loose.

Beautiful color. Ties at your actual waist, I usually prefer it to be either a little higher or lower. Received many compliments though. Comfortable dress to wear all night and chase a two-year old in!

Gorgeous & flattering fit
I wore this dress to a fashion week event and loved it! It's a fabulous, bright color, love the accent floral, and was a flattering fit. The back is a little bit lower than I usually wear because I have to wear a bra with a back closure so it didn't always stay hidden, but I stopped caring if it showed. For those who don't mind low-back or sticky bras, it's adorable! #floral #bright #femenine

Perfect for any occasion! And SUPER comfortable!! I'm saving up to own this dress
I rented this dress for an early evening rehearsal dinner in Texas. The moment I put this dress on I fell in love! It's light and airy, super comfortable, and flattering. The fabric is high quality and flows nicely. It was an all you can eat Tex-Mex and BBQ dinner, so needless to say I ate a lot, and I was still super comfortable in this dress and stayed flattering! (The picture is post-dinner!) I paired it with simple earrings and nude heels. The back gives it a little something fun also. Everyone complemented me on how much they loved my dress. I'm currently saving up to buy this dress… that's how much I love it! It's worth every penny. I would have to say it's true to size and the belt helps it fit any body shape. Thanks RTR for another amazing experience!

I got 6 and 8. Neither were at all tight. Waist on 6 higher and a bit better so wore that.

Wore this to a city hall wedding. Perfection!
Can be worn with a regular bra but may show at times, since the dress does run large. I would say size down! Otherwise, it looked and felt great.

I loved this dress! The color got lots of attention in photos and at the rehearsal dinner!
Very flattering especially for your back! The length is great too!. IT is a little high cut at the neckline in the front which is why I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 star

Perfect for a summer party; many compliments all night!
I wore this to my 30th birthday party in June. RTR is great for bold, special occasion dresses like these because while it was *perfect* for my event and I felt special and lovely in it-- this isn't the kind of dress I could wear multiple times per year since it is so memorable! I wore the 8, but the style is very forgiving-- I could have probably gone up or down a size with little change to the overall look. I was worried that the hemline would look too short with my extremely long legs, but I think it was just right for a party (maybe not for a wedding). Very flattering on! I wore with nude shoes and no jewelry. Just let the colors and bold flower shine!

Wore it to my sister's rehearsal dinner and received so many compliments!
I should have worn the 4 which fit perfectly. I chose the 6 because it was a little longer but my bra strap kept showing in the back and on one shoulder because it was too big. There are snaps for bra straps but one was missing. Definitely order your size and backup one size up! Paired it with silver strappy heels and voila, perfect outfit. Elastic waist makes wearing the dress soooo easy and belt/sash finishes the look! Thank you again RTR!

I loved the color and fit - but I actually wore it backwards!
Got a lot of compliments, it was hot and muggy and the dress was just right - the invite said "formal" but I didn't want to wear long, or black. This was a great summer event dress.

did you wear this dress backwards so that it would have a lower neckline in the front?

The dress fit well, didn't hug anything uncomfortably. Really comfortable and had the clips for your bra straps. Loved the flow that the skirt had and the sleeves had a flutter, too. Different color combination, but I received so many compliments. I really loved this dress.

Great dress!
The pics do not do this dress justice. It was fun and colorful. I was worried the 4 wouldn't fit, but it was great. Loved it so much, I would like to buy it! It was a bit above the knee and the hips are flowy, but not too fabric-y

Lovely summer dress!
I rented this dress for my high school graduation and was very happy with it. The fact that it was pretty flowy made it very comfortable and flattering. The back scooped a little lower than I expected, but I ended up liking that. The reason I gave it a 4 is because it was a bit large around the waist. The belt definitely helped, but the fact that the waist was a bit large made the fabric bunch together beneath the belt. Not a huge issue at all though..it's a fixable issue. I would definitely recommend this dress.

Perfect Summer Dress
I rented this as a backup for my wedding shower and wore it the next day. This is a great party/date dress. Super light weight, flowy and comfortable. I ordered a size 6 but could have used a size 4. But because of the style of the dress you couldn't tell the difference. I wore this with a turqoise necklace and gold sandals!

I loved wearing this dress. I got a lot of compliments and felt so skinny!!! Awesome experience!
This dress was so comfortable and the fit was perfect. It was easy to find shoes to match, the belt was super cute and added a little something extra to it, and I found it didn't need too many extra accessories, because it was perfect as is. When I received it, it needed a light iron taken to it to get rid of some wrinkles, but overall it didn't wrinkle easily while at the wedding. It was the perfect dress for an outdoor vintage wedding. I would recommend ordering your size plus one size smaller as your extra dress, because I ended up wearing the smaller size and was happy to have it. And did I mention how comfortable it was?

Size 0 and 2 seemed to be exactly the same size. The dress fit really well and would work with most body types as the style isn't extremely fitted - great for a summer cocktail party. Loved the color and thought it was very flattering.

Bright, summery, fun!
I ordered this dress as my backup, but the colors were so vibrant and perfect for my outdoor event that I ended up wearing this one instead. The dress was slightly longer than it appears on the model, which was perfect for someone tall like me. It hit about 6 inches above the need. I was able to wear a regular bra with this, with no problem -- even though the stylists recommend a nu-bra or backless bra. The back was low, but not so low that you needed to wear one. I also found this dress traveled really well without wrinkling, which was a bonus since I had to pack it in a suitcase before my event. I would definitely rent it again.
