Found a bright beautiful dress to match my personality!

I felt very comfortable in this dress. The length was perfect for my height. The dress is snug at the top so if you are busty go up a size.

Loved! Loved! Loved!

This dress is exactly what I needed at 4 months pregnant, it made me feel gorgeous, especially with all the compliments I received. I would have kept it forever if I were allowed. It fell perfectly and fit true to size (I have the tiniest bump) I got compliments from everyone. Highly recommend this dress.

Pretty dress, but made for a skinny build, not athletic. The fit was awkward.

Poor fit...didn't wear this dress or the other one I ordered for another event. I wish athletic fit was a sizing type. Not everyone wants to be or is skinny.

This dress was beautiful in both color and fabric. I got compliments all night!!

The mid section was tight compared to how loose the straps were, so I was checking for gaping to make sure my bra wasn't showing all night. Other than that I loved it.

Great color- weird fit

The color of this dress is beautiful- it's comfortable on and would be great to dance in all night. It had a very odd fit in the bust area. I'm a C cup and filled out the front of the dress fine- but there was a weird gapping at the armpit area. I wonder if the 4 would've done the same- but this was my back up dress so I only ordered one size.

Fit is true to size. I loved this dress! Metal piece for the v is a little awkward but overall a great option!

Made for a great anniversary dress! Waist band has no stretch but fabric and fit were comfortable

Rented this for my anniversary and got so many compliments! The waist band had no stretch so if you are bigger in the rib cage or plan to eat/dance a lot I would size up. The deep V worked well for me because I'm small chested but needed tape to keep from gaping (again, small chested). Overall it made for a great date night dress but the no waist give could be uncomfortable after a while.

Great color but very weird fit

Trust the reviews. Unless you are extremely broad chested I would avoid this dress. The armpits flap open, the straps are extremely long, and yet it manages to smash your chest down like a sports bra. I don't recommend!

So sassy and fun!

I loved this dress. The color is amazing and it flows beautifully. It did run a little larger than I had anticipated from reading the reviews, and the wire thing that makes the deep V kept moving around, making the line around the bust look a little awkward. Additionally, I probably should've steamed it before the wedding, as it looked a little wrinkled in photos. Overall, it was beautiful and I would rent it again!

Ended up not wearing

I think this would have looked cuter on me if I were a bit skinnier...it really didn't do any favors for me. I felt so frumpy in it; my husband didn't like it and neither did two of my girlfriends. Plus there is a lot of cleavage that goes on in this dress. Thankfully I had brought a cute black dress that I already owned that I ended up wearing that night

Great color!

The cut was very revealing in the front and difficult to wear a bra with. The 6 was a lot bigger in the bust area and the 4 wasn't big enough. The fabric feels great, but anything wet that touches it leaves a dark mark. I had tons of compliments, but wouldn't rent it again.

Great flowing skirt and lightweight with a flattering silhouette.

Like others mention, the waist is pretty tight (the 8 fit but it was... Quite fitted) and the chest could definitely flatten you out (I wore a lightly padded bra to counteract that). The skirt is well draped and very flattering. There is a metal piece that forms the v at the chest which kept shifting (annoying), but for one night it was doable. Got lots of compliments! Pretty dress if you can find a fit in the waist.

I loved this dress!!! However I should have gotten a smaller size, due to unexpected weight loss.

Wore this for my graduation ball (party).

Gorgeous dress, not for those with a large chest

This is a gorgeous dress--the color, skirt and shape are all lovely--but there were two major problems 1)I have a large chest but figured that if there was too much cleavage/ it was too low cut I could wear a cami underneath, However there is this awful metal V inside the dress at the bottom Of the V, on a large bust it bulges out and doesn't allow the top to fall correctly 2) the arm holes in the front of the dress were very baggy, it may lay better on someone else but they were extremely ill fitting on me and needed to be seriously tailored of the dress were to be worn. I was hoping to wear This dress as something fun flirty and bright for graduation, but i had to return it. The top was completely off and funny looking on me

Dance like EVERYONE is watching in this dress!

Super pretty dress. It fits snug in the waist but the neckline is quite loose. I spent a good majority of the night readjusting the straps to hide my bra. But with pins or some fashion tape it should be fine. The dress moves beautifully! I'm a ballroom dancer, and wore it to a wedding of a dancing couple- so there was plenty of dancing involved!

Beautiful dress. Perfect for a wedding. Shoulders were a bit too roomy. Great dress for busty girls, though.

Fun color and perfect for dancing!

I wore this to a black tie wedding and absolutely loved it! The neckline is deep and I couldn't wear a bra but had tape that worked perfectly. The neckline also has wire in the v so it maintains structure. I'm petite and was a little worried that the straps would be too long but it was fine. The bottom is fun and flirty and perfect for dancing all night. Overall I would absolutely recommend!

Beautiful color, comfortable fit, and great movement!

The color was even more beautiful in person; I'd describe it as peacock blue. The fit was super comfy and made it easy to wear all night. I didn't end up wearing a bra but did opt for some pasties because there was a slight chill in the air if you get my drift : ) I didn't experience any excess fabric issues or odd wire around the neckline as some other reviewers mentioned. Overall a great dress and I got lots of compliments!

I loved the bottom of this dress. Dancing in it at the wedding was great!

The 2 fit me pretty well. The 4 had a little more room in the stomach area, but was way too big on the top and in the arms. The dress was extremely comfortable. I wore it to a catholic wedding, so there was time between the wedding and the reception. My fiancé walked all around the town of Roanoke, VA in his suit and my dress and I got a lot of compliments on it. I would definitely recommend renting it!

Love to twirl in this bright dress

Fit: runs very small in the chest. Busty girls size up. I am 34DD and for that matter alone I should have worn a 10 whereas I usually wear a 6 or 8. Color: stunning Cut: with the exception of the aforementioned chest sizing the cut is extremely flattering Other: there's a wire v-shaped bit nestled around the lower half of the v-neck which kept sliding down and distorting the shape on the dress. Perhaps a quick stitch would be best to keep it in place? Finally, I would absolutely rent this dress again and hopefully sizing up would resolve the issue of the chest sizing for me.

Probably my favorite RTR dress!

Beautiful color, really comfortable material and well made. Perfect for a summer wedding and really fun to dance in. Didn't want to send it back! The only thing Is that it is quite low in the front. If you're shy about showing off the girls I wouldn't recommend this dress just for that reason.

I didn't end up wearing this dress, but it was very pretty.

I really liked this dress, but ended up not wearing it because the fit was a little funny, and the other dress I had ordered fit better. This dress was tight in the bust, so the straps bowed out a little bit, but the waist was a little baggy, so it was a little unflattering. Had this been the only dress I ordered, I would have worn it, but my other dress had a nigh more flattering fit.

I LOVED LOVED LOVED this dress was seriously considering keeping it!! It was so fun and flowey!!

I found the top to be huge I actually had to pin the straps so the girls wouldn't come out lol. That was its only flaw though. I'm still considering to buy dress and just have straps altered, it is my most favorite dress yet!!

I loved the color and material but the fit was not good for me.

Pros- beautiful material and I loved the color. Cons- I think it was made for a taller person with longer waste. I'm 5'3", 122 lbs athletic build but.... I have a 34B bust and short waste so the dress was big on top and it cut across the ribs instead of falling at my waist. Tricky to keep it from exposing my chest all night!

Beautiful dress- flattened my girls

It is a beautiful dress. However it completely flattened my breasts. Looked very odd. I ordered my normal size (4) and a 6 to be safe. I fit snugly in the 6. I think an 8 may have worked, but I'm not sure. I did not wear this dress but will try again with another dress.

This dress was really beautiful and not too short (since I'm very tall). Only concern was it was very tight on the chest, but other than that I loved it!

Great color and cut

This dress has a great color and a great cut - I wore it to an awards ceremony (cocktail attire) and was definitely dressed appropriately. I loved the little dip but I agree, the wire was a little strange though it wasn't bothersome. The hem on this flows beautifully and it was my favorite part. The zipper does go alllllll the way to the hem of the dress - just FYI! Definitely invest in nip covers though. Would rent this brand again!

I think this may have been my favorite dress I've ever worn!

Gorgeous color. Amazing cut. Luxurious fabric. There seriously is not a single flaw with this dress. Wore it to my cousin's outdoor wedding. It was about 90 degrees, but the fabric was so light and airy, I stayed cool the whole time. Wore my regular bra (which added to the comfort level of the dress...no one likes strapless bras!) I will definitely be renting this again!

Amazingly fun dress!

Loved the color and the dress was the perfect, fun dress for an outdoor summer wedding. They definitely run small - I wore the larger of my two sizes and I wish I wold have got one more size up as it was tight on my ribs. I'm not super busty (small C) and was able to not wear a bra with the dress which was great. The reviews are correct stating that the rib/busy area is very tight but the straps are loose. It has an odd fit but I felt great in it!

Stunning dress!

Rented this dress on my unlimited subscription, and wore it on two dressy occasions! My husband kept asking if I could buy it so I could wear it again. Great dress, very flattering. Might be a little low cut if you are busty, but overall it fit perfectly on me! Loved the flowy bottom and the bright blue color. Would definitely rent again if I had an occasion!

So Many Compliments!

I loved the color of this dress even more in person. It is the most fitted around the waist. I contemplated wearing the 6 for more room to eat cake. I chose the 4 as it fit much better in the top/bust area.

The color was gorgeous and the cut and style was so unique

The top was big for me, so I ended up pinning it, but then it was tighter through the waist. Pear shaped beware! All in all though, stunning dress and I would recommend.
