Perfect wedding dress to elope in!
Wonderful and stunning dress. I wore it for our elopement and my guests would not stop telling me how much they loved the dress. They could not believe it was RTR. It does run small especially in the bust. I wore a 4R but probably would have been more comfortable in a 6R. Otherwise I could not have been more pleased.

It's not white....
Wanted to wear this to a holiday party with a fur but the material wasn't actually bright white. I️ considered it anyway but the dress just didn't not seem quality

A small, quaint wedding
The first mistake I made was waiting so long to order. My regular size 6 was sold out so I was about to search for a new dress, but all the comments kept saying the dress ran super small and to order at least one size up. So I'm thinking, okay, an 8 should be perfect then. The dress comes in a day before the wedding (as specified) and it is literally falling off me. There's easily 2 extra inches of space. I'm in panic mode, call up customer service to see what my options are. The 6 is unavailable so I go with the 4. It could happen, I'm small up top. They expedite the 4 so it gets here first thing in the morning and it's about half an inch too tight so I can't breathe in it, much less sit down. Out of options, I had to go out and buy a replacement. This is the only time I've been disappointed with RTR, but more so with the reviews. Long story short, stick with your typical size in tops for this dress especially if you're lacking in the boob department.

I rented this for my engagement photo shoot. I put lace top over it. It worked out great.
I am regular 8, but 10 fits better. I am 36C, so it was a little bit tight but was able to work with it since I put lace top over it.

Engagement photo perfect :)
I rented this as like my third dress for engagement photos (wardrobe changes plus two locations=4 dresses!) I absolutely love how this dress photographed! It was exactly what I had hoped. I felt so pretty! However... there are a few things to be aware of! Many reviewers have said it runs small and they are RIGHT! They only had size 4 when I rented when I knew I probably would need a 6 by those reviews... I decided to try it anyway and wow it was tough and uncomfortable (but obviously worth it when I saw my photos). Let's start with the slip part underneath.... not only was it tight it was so super short - I think you can see it in this photo. You can't tell in a lot of the other photos because the tulle does a good job of covering it but definitely something to be aware of. The tulle is fabulous :) now the top.... ouch! The material is almost a leathery feel but not as thick and it is slightly off whitish, I liked it. BUT it was so extremely tight I could barely zip it up, and even then I don't think it stayed all the way up. I do not have a large chest by any means (small 34C) but my goodness this was tight and FORGET wearing a bra. This made me look a little flattened out but not a huge issue. The other problem was part of the boning had actually come out of the material and stabbed my ribs. I put a little bit of tissue under it and this helped. Sitting down for a car ride in such a tight dress was horribly uncomfortable. I wish I had the size 6 to try!!! Even with all of that said, I'm glad I went for it and wore it. My pictures are so gorgeous, and isn't beauty pain?!

Runs Incredibly Small
I ordered this dress for my wedding rehearsal dinner, but was unfortunately unable to wear either size. I am faithfully a size 6 in most RTR dresses and typically order a 4 as my backup size. Due to the some of the other reviews, I ordered a size 8 as my backup to be safe. The dresses arrived the evening of my rehearsal, and I attempted to try them on about an hour in advance. The size 6 fit more like a size 0, and even the size 8 was 2-3 inches away from zipping. I was very disappointed because the dress was gorgeous! I would recommend ordering at least 2 sizes up.

Not a fan
I was so excited for this dress, planned to wear it to my wedding rehearsal dinner. Sadly that didn't work out. The inside base of the dress, mainly the lower half/skirt area ran VERY small. I ordered a larger size and it still was barely able to cover my bottom and the back zipper portion ended up bunching at my lower back. The front of the dress, where the tulle curves up, you can see through the tulle and see the under dress (probably why many people end up wearing a belt with it). I would not recommend this dress if you are larger on the bottom half.

I LOVED this dress! I felt very Carrie Bradshaw in it :)
I LOVED this dress! I felt very Carrie Bradshaw in it, perfect for my Birthday! It does run small up top if you have a dress. Luckily I ordered the backup size in a 2 since I could get the zipper up on my usual 0. There are so many fun tulle layers and you feel like a princess! The only downside was that the size 0 had a beautiful white satin ribbon edge on the top of the bodice and the size 2 did not have that, which was a bummer. Overall though, I loved this dress!

In love with this dress!
I got a size 2L and a backup 4L (I'm 5'5", but I wanted to get a longer size to make the dress a little more gowny). The 2 ended up fitting better, but the zipper was broken. It didn't end up being a problem because I wore a strapless bra instead of no bra so the top would fit better and it created a little more shape. The 4L was also whiter, where the size two was a slightly more worn and dim. It was exactly the look I wanted! It was comfortable and I didn't have to pull it up at all. The bottom is a little see through and the skirt underneath is very short. I knew this from other reviews, so I wore a skirt slip which worked out great!

Perfect dress for photoshoot!
I rented this dress for my 30th birthday photoshoot and the pictures turned out great! I ended up renting two sizes up based on previous reviews and I'm glad I did. The top fit a little big but the inner skirt was so tight it barely fit over my hips. This dress is not made for curvy girls. I'm glad I didn't wear to an event because I would have been trying to pull it down all night and keeping my top pulled up. If you rent this dress just know that it's difficult for the top and bottom to both fit perfectly.

Reception dress for a fun night!
I wore this dress for my wedding reception at an upscale bowling/bocce bistro. It was a perfect feel for the event which gave me enough formality to stand out as the bride but fit the fun, party vibe of the venue. The length was absolutely perfect for my height and let me have some fun with my shoes. The under-skirt is really tight and short, so I went with the larger size to have enough room to move, and it resulted in being a bit too big on the chest, as I'm small-busted, but all in all, I got great feedback and loved wearing the dress!

Strange Sizing
Rented this dress twice and it never quite worked. 1st time - rented a 0 & 2 and the two was just a tad too tight and there was no way the zero would fit 2nd time - rented the 4 & 2 (thinking I could maybe squeeze into the 2 if I needed too) and the 2 this time was way too big. I have a bigger chest and I still wasn't filling out the top. I was having to puff out my chest and stomach to keep the dress up (I'm a 34C) so I didn't end up wearing. Overall, a fun dress wish I could have worn.

Too tight and short, didn't wear!
I was SO excited to wear this dress for my engagement photos - but it was a TOTAL bust!! I ordered two different sizes to make sure I would have the perfect fit. Needless to say, it was ENTIRELY too short. I have no problem showing some skin and even I was super uncomfortable with the shortness of this dress underneath. I thought the tulle "skirt" would cover it but as soon as a camera flashes you can see right through it. Be WARNED! Check out some of the pictures because it is see-through and SO, INCREDIBLY short underneath.

Lightweight and flowing for a beautiful outdoor wedding.
PROS: off white cream color is not too sterile white for bride. asymmetric waste is more forgiving. toole overlay is flowing and fun with many layers and a solid short skirt underneath it all. Great skirt length! CONS: I normally wear a 0 or 2, but after the dress wouldn't zip over my bust, I went incrementally up to a 6R. STILL the bust barely closed and on the day of the wedding, I was stitched in to keep it from unzipping slowly. (READ: there is no clasp to hold the top of the zipper) Therefore, the dress was a bit big in the waist, and I was not breathing comfortably due to the tight top. One other thing: it was an outdoor wedding and for one reason or another, flies and bugs kept getting caught in the toole of the dress! Little black bugs are noticeable in the white skirt. Overall, I would give this 7/10.

Didn't wear this, a little to small.
This was VERY snug in the chest, and the skirt is very sheer and the underlining is very short.

I. Loved. This. Dress. Everything about it is perfect. The cut the color the amount of puff in the skirt. I felt amazing in it and the pics looked awesome. I wore it to diner en blanc and it was perfect. I want to buy it but dunno where else I'd wear a white dress like this cos it was almost like a wedding dress!

Surprised :(
This dress is extremely SMALL. It almost appeared as if it shrunk from being cleaned on too high of heat. The skirt portion was literally 6 inches. Yes, 6 inches total expected to cover from your hips down and I'm a small person.

I am about 5'3" and this dress was way to long for me. I had seen people go both ways in their reviews for a shorter person. But I was hoping for something flirty and light-hearted, and it completely overwhelmed my body and made me look like a little girl playing dress up, rather than a sophisticated woman with style. I did not wear it. The color and feel of the fabric was not as lovely as I would have hoped either. I generally like off whites, ivory, gold but it seemed almost aged. If you go with this dress, be sure you have a steamer ready to get everything all fluffed out and smooth.

Party Dress- wedding dress number 2
I wore this adorable dress for my "party dress" at my wedding reception. It was awesome! Loved having the freedom to dance and not worry about my train or the weight of my wedding dress. The high low skirt was a cute variation of a typical strapless white puffy dresses. I wore the 4R. For non-busty girls, the 6 and 8 were just too big. The underlay of the skirt is a bit snug and doesn't give too much so be aware of that. Highly recommend!

I loved this dress, it was perfect for my little wedding, it made feel like a little princess.
The dress is Ivory color, and I didn't noticed that and was expecting white, so I used a white belt but it's was ok, that was my mistake! I have a 36D chest, I'm 5'5' tall and 164 lbs weight, and expecting a little miracle 8 weeks pregnant, showing a lot. The problems I had with the dress was in my chest, it was a little short in that area, and I felt half part of my boobs was out the whole time and I need more coverage, so I kept pulling the dress up there. I couldn't wear a bra, because the bra kept showing up due to the top to be very short. Also the dress got a weak zipper, and it opened at some moment. So I don't recommend this dress if you got a large chest like mine. It was perfect in the length, and it was great to hide my pregnant tummy.

Gorgeous, ethereal dress for post-reception bar hopping
It was snug, but I was glad it stayed up! No nip slips, and was a crowd pleaser! My chest is pretty small, but I wore it without a bra no problem (it was actually more comfortable that way). The tulle is SUPER delicate, so be sure to put it on barefoot. Heels can snag and rip the "under-tulle". Otherwise, it was the perfect dress for post-summer-wedding bar hopping.

Beautiful and Romantic
I read the reviews and because everyone said it ran a bit snug I got a 10, but I wish I had gotten a size 8. I wear a 32D bra and it wasn't at all tight, in fact it stood out from my body a bit. Because I only wore it for my engagement photos it wasn't a big issue, but if I had been at a party it would have bothered me. The dress is gorgeous, it had a few snags but with the layers you couldn't tell. It billowed beautifully in my photos while sitting, and though it's sheer for most of the length, you really cannot see through it.

Engagement photo rental--photographs incredibly!
This dress made for some magical engagement photos. It photographs beautifully, however I don't know about the fit for an all day/all night situation if you are constantly a "between sizes" person. That said, I have a different body type (bigger bottom, way less up top), and if you really are true to size--you should be good to go, as long as you know that it will be a little bit tight. This dress ran a little small on me, but I needed the smaller size for my bust because the larger size was a little too big. However, I was only using it for pictures so it was incredibly flawless. Would highly recommend for photos!

Photographed so well!
I LOVE the way this dress looks in photos but it did for a little awkwardly. I am usually a size 2 in regular dresses and a size 4 in bridesmaid dresses. This dress however I'm glad I ordered extra up! Although the dress ended up being a little big on top causing it to bunch at the waist, it was TIGHT around my hips and butt. There is no way I could've worn the 4. I loved the high low cut and ivory/ off-white dress color ... perfect for my elopement! My measurements are 33 bust, 25.5 waist, 39.5 hips/butt

Derby themed shower
I rented this for my derby themed shower. I'm big in the bust (26FF) yet the two still fit and wasn't inappropriate. It was, unfortunately, long on me even with 4.5" heels. I'm 5'3". But I got so many compliments and didn't want to send it back!

I wore this as a second dress at my wedding reception. It worked out perfectly.
As most people have said, this dress runs small! I usually wear a size 4 and had to size up to a 6 in order to get this dress to zip over my chest (34D). Also, as mentioned, the underdress is VERY short. However, the tulle covers that portion so it wasn't a really a problem. I changed into this dress mid-way through my wedding reception in order to be able to dance without getting trampled on and I received tons of compliments! It's a great way to show off your fun wedding shoes as well. I ordered a size 4 and a size 6 and the tulle on the 6 was a bit wrinkled when it came. I was able to get most of them out with a hand steamer so you may want to keep a steamer handy if you order this dress.

Unable to wear.
I'm normally a size 6 as the size 8 was still 2 sizes too small for my chest and I'm not even well endowed. Was un-usable for my engagement pictures, but it looks like others have had luck. Just be weary with sizing.
