Perfect for an outdoor summer wedding or event.
The dress fits true to size. The cut is low in the front, but there is boning inside the dress for support; no bra needed underneath. It's a lightweight cotton-feel material, and the skirt flows when you dance with one layer of tulle underneath to add great flounce! The waist does not run high--it fits well on your small waist and is very flattering. Loved it!

First RTR fail :( but great customer service!
Unfortunately both sizes were wayyyyy to short, I'm only 5'4". I am busty on top (34D) and this dress is probably more flattering for a smaller chest. The tulle underlay also makes the dress flare out and the zipper in back goes allll the way down. Cute summer dress, too bad it didn't fit :(

This dress is light and easy to wear
Only problem was the seam at the top along the boobs, would buckle from time to time and wouldn't lay flat. I also thought the dress was a little short for me. But I wore it to a spring horse race and it was the perfect dress for the occasion. The fabric is definitely more casual then fancy.

Not great for girls with larger than a B cup :(
I absolutely love the pattern and style of this dress. I only got the size 4 as it was booked in other sizes so I didn't have a backup. I wasn't worried because of the stylist notes saying it was good for all breast size and was true to size (I'm usually a size 4 and a C to D cup). But, when I went to put it on I got it zipped up to my chest and then it got REALLY tight! I got it zipped but I looked downright cartoonish with my boobs pushed in and up so high! It also flattened them out in the front like a pancake, which was super disappointing. Maybe the size 6 would've worked for my chest, but the 4 fit my waist really nicely. Definitely get the size up if you are bigger than a B cup!

Loved the dress, the color for an outdoor wedding was perfect.
The corset was very tight I had to wear the larger size that I ordered. I loved how flared out the bottom was, it was very fun to dance in. I paired the dress with yellow earrings and red shoes.

Even more stunning in person!
It's an absolutely beautiful dress, but it definitely runs small! Order a size up from your normal size for your second size. I wore a 2, and it fit me more like 0s usually do (tight, but wearable). I was also able to wear a strapless bra underneath it without it showing, despite the low cut. Also, I'm pretty flat-chested, and I think this dress would be difficult for bustier girls to fit into. Finally--it looks great with a big statement necklace (I wore it with a crystal one from Banana Republic).

I wore this dress as a MOH dress for my best friend's wedding. It was perfect!
SMALL fit. I'm usually a 2 and sometimes a 0 so I'm glad I ordered the 2 and the 4 since I ended up needing the larger size. Cheapish material, but it photographed really well. The outdoor photo best shows the color. I got a TON of compliments on this dress and though I wouldn't buy it, I would definitely recommend it.

Rented for my engagement party and it didn't fit.
First time using RTR so thank goodness I had a backup plan. I can typically fit into a 4 or 6 so I thought the 6 would work. I was going to order an 8 just in case but they were out. I wasn't too impressed with the fabric of the dress and the size just too small.

The color of this dress really popped!
The dress was very small on me. I could hardly zip it up, but I only had to wear it for about 30 minutes for my senior pictures so I was able to tough it out. It's a really gorgeous dress and was the perfect length-- not too short but not too long. Loved it!

Perfect for outdoor, summer, southern wedding
Lots of people said the fit was small, so I intended to order the size 6 and 8 (I usually wear a 6, but am pear-shaped and a 4 is generally a better fit on top). They had run out of the 8, so I got the 6 and 4 instead - it worked out because I ended up wearing the 4. If you're bigger in the chest (I'm barely a B cup) then a bigger size might be better for you, because while the 6 was more comfortable in my ribs, it gaped at my chest. I stuck with the 4 to minimize the gaping up top, and it worked out great! I added some RtR accessories, and all was well. I got a ton of compliments, and it was perfect for my friends' outdoor summer southern wedding.

Complemented my hat!
A very cute and fun dress! Glad I listened to other reviewers and sized up. I normally wear a 6, but the 8 was the right size. It definitely is short! I never had any problem but was mindful of it in the breeze and when dancing and sitting. Thin fabric great for a summer event.

The dress was beautiful but did not fit. RTR credited my account.
Size runs very small. I am a 6 but could have worn an 8 or maybe 10! It's too bad because it would have been perfect for my birthday. I will rent again in a bigger size. Loved the packaging and easy to use service.

Fun and flattering!
This dress was a ton of fun to wear to a summer wedding. The material is light so I wouldn't recommend it for cooler weather. I usually wear a 2 or 4 in dresses and wore the 4, the 2 was way too tight up top so I'd recommend sizing up for your back up. Otherwise the dress stays put so you don't need to adjust it throughout the night. It's a blast to dance in and received a lot of compliments!

Perfect dress for a summer wedding!
I wore this dress to a summer wedding in July. I expect that the dress was gong to be a bit more fancy, but it honestly worked out great. I did have a few things I didn't like about the dress though. The boning was poking me when I would sit down and even had a but of it stick out through the fabric. It was a little loose in the very top, where I assumes others had the same problem I did of the dress slipping down and then having to pull it up. You could tell the dress had been worn because of these two things. I ordered a size 2 and 4. The 2 was slightly too small, the 4 was perfect because I was able to wear a strapless bra with it. I loves the color and the sweetheart neckline. I paired it with nude pumps and they worked perfect. Overall the dress is great and I would certainly recommend it. I had a great first experience with RTR and will be renting again.

Didn't get to wear - ran very small.
I am normally a size 6 but ordered a 4 & a 6 as in my experience couture can run large . I have a small chest but this dress was too small on the top in both sizes. Couldn't wear it for the wedding is planned for - felt way too skimpy.

Young, fun dress for Graduation
I rented this dress for my graduation from graduate school and received many compliments. I absolutely loved the color, style, and it was exactly what I was looking for to wear in May.it was extremely comfortable as well! The ONLY downside was the fit in my bust area. I am a 36D and the dress was extremely snug. It didn't help that there was a slight dip in the cleavage as well. The picture doesn't do it justice, but I was popping out of the dress..LOL. I was even skeptical about wearing it because of the low neckline.

Great dress for a wedding!
The dress was a little big at the top and I did have to keep pulling it up, but to go down a size it was too fitted at the bottom. This dress is great for weddings! Be mindful if you are going to be outside in hot temperatures (I was outside in the Bahamas in July) the lining can get hot. Overall I enjoyed the dress!

The dress was a fun color and fit for a wedding that took place outside under a tent. I was uncomfortable in the dress because I felt like I was popping out of the top.

Beautiful color and fun skirt!
This dress was perfect for a summer wedding. The color really popped and the skirt was fun and flattering. I am a petite girl and the dress was very tight in the rib cage because of the wiring in the upper part of the dress. I had to be conscious of pulling up the dress a lot, but no more than a normal strapless dress. I loved this dress and wish I could own it but my one real issue was the tulle material under the skirt because it hurt to sit on for a while. I accessorized with nude wedges, a simple gold necklace and a gold clutch. Have fun with this dress!

I wore this dress for the Kentucky Derby Race Day. I got a ton of compliments!
The dress is very tight fitting in bodice and has boning on the sides which can cut uncomfortably into your waist if you wear the dress all day like I did. It is well-shaped in the bodice so I did not even have to wear a bra with is. Also it is somewhat low-cut at the center bust but overall I loved wearing it. I wore a size 6 which is my usual size but it was very snug and kind of flattened my bust. I think it runs true to just slightly small for size. It is a light cottony fabric perfect for warm summer/spring days. It also has a crinoline skirt that makes it the perfect fit-flare style.

Perfect dress for late afternoon southern garden wedding.
Overall fit was true to size however the boning is very tight thru the ribs so taking a deep breath was difficult. On a couple occasions I had to sneak away to unzip just to get some relief. I loved the dress, it was PERFECT a late afternoon outdoor southern wedding. Received endless compliments.

Dress is very cute but runs very small. I'm typically a 4 or 6 and the 6 didn't even zip up my rib cage. I'm sad I wasn't able to wear it because it would have been perfect for the spring party I was going to!

Darling but puffy!
The pattern and top part of this dress are so cute. But I was surprised who puffy the skirt is. It was a little much. There is a full tulle underskirt- which is not very comfortable. If the skirt were not so inflated, I would have loved this dress.

Cute Shape and Comfortable Fit
I got this as my second option for a tea themed bridal shower. The dress is quite comfy and really easy to wear. The front was a little low cut for me but still manageable. I loved the poof around the hips - very flattering for a pear shape figure.

Such an adorable and flattering dress!
Dress makes waist look itty bitty, and the top fits even if you have a larger bust. The short poofy bottom made me feel a little self-conscious when walking up stairs, but it's manageable length for the most part (I'm just tall!).

Fantastic pattern and beautiful shape
The color and cut of this dress are both very flattering. The cut really minimizes your waist. I had to size up because my size wasn't available, so unfortunately I had to pull up the dress throughout the night. I am sure the dress would have been even better in my normal size.

This dress was perfect and the whole experience was so easy and convenient. Couldn't be happier!
This dress was so flattering and comfortable. It stayed up the whole night, and the waist cinches in to give a really flattering figure. The dress does flair out a lot, so if you're going for a really retro/fun style it is PERFECT. I wore it for a boat party in May and it was the perfect attire. This was my first RTR experience and I am sold. So convenient and easy, and a great way to get a really special dress for a special occasion.

Fun, flirty, and fabulous!
I rented this dress for an outdoor spring wedding, and it fit in perfectly with the atmosphere! I was a little nervous at first because the dress was initially really tight across the bust. I was able to make it work by not wearing a bra, which was fine because of the boning in the dress. It is a very busty dress, though--so probably not good for a modest affair. The dress held up really well! I wore a slip underneath so the boning and the tulle wouldn't irritate my skin, and that was really helpful. I would definitely rent this dress again, but would probably go one size up rather than down with my backup size.

Graduation Cocktail Party
Worked the room in this dress. It fit true to size and was not too short which is a common problem with dresses for me. The bust was slightly big, but would most likely fit anyone else who wasn't so small chested. The pattern is perfect for spring time and the dress puffs out in the skirt area for a nice, full effect. Great with nude strappy sandals and a long lariat necklace.

I got a size up and it still did not fit!
I was pretty disappointed with this overall. The description was not very clear about the crinoline lining underneath (which, ever though the dress did not fit, was very uncomfortable). The material was also cheap. Pretty much a fail... I was glad I got a second look which worked out great!!

Loved the pattern and silhouette. And I got rave reviews from other wedding guests!
It was tighter around my rib cage than i expected, but that ended up being a good thing so it stayed in place while I danced away the night. I loved the retro look of the dress, especially when paired with my bright red shoes and some red lipstick.
