Beautiful- but runs small
I rented the 8 with my unlimited and could not wear. The zipper was inches from zipping in the back. The fabric is beautiful- silk, but has no stretch. I would suggest going up a size or even two if you have a wider rib cage or large bust. The dress is gorgeous- I was planning to wear to a more casual party but it could also go more formal due to the quality of the fabric.

RTR Team Review
Beautiful warm print! Running true to size we recommend sizing up for backup if you're bustier and down if you're smaller framed. While there is no stretch to the fabric, the bust has plenty of room and support with the v neckline. The waist is fitted in the midsection, and the hips have a more fitted slip underneath the fuller skirt. I'd recommend ordering a long length if you're over 5'6" and plan to wear heels. Looks great with gold jewelry.

Beautiful dress
This dress is absolutely beautiful but I wasn't able to wear it as the top ran really small. I wore a size 10 comfortably inother dresses by this designer but with this one the zipper wouldn't zip. I would recommend sizing up of you have a wide rib cage or large bust.

Beautiful dress
The dress was beautiful! It was a little tight in my rib cage.. So not sure if I should have sized up or not. It was very, very low cut. I was self-conscious about that and leaning forward to dance with my little guy. The length was perfect even with flats. Overall I really enjoyed this dress.

Didn't get to wear this dress but I tried it on and it ran large in the bust area. I am small and I probably could've gone with a smaller size.

Feminine, flowy, gorgeous and tons of compliments
This dress is ultra feminine. Very flattering top which was cut low but not too low. The skirt was very full and flowed beautifully as you walked. The asymmetrical rushing along the waist was very flattering. It hit right above my waist around my ribs which made my waist look shapely. I rented it for a formal affair but felt it wasn't quite formal enough for the event. It was so beautiful I had to wear it so used it for my 25th wedding anniversary dinner with more casual sandals. Women were coming up to my table complimenting my beautiful dress. Didn't want to send it back...rent this!

More formal than you'd think...
This dress was beautiful and fit perfectly. However, I didn't realize it was a very dressy item. I did not end up wearing it but will rent it again when I have something like an evening party outside or wedding. I wouldn't rent this for an occasion like work or church or dinner.

Statement Piece
This dress was worn at a gala for a business event at a high end beach resort in Mexico. It is a stunning dress, extremely well made and it fit like a glove. It is lined so in my opinion better for an evening event, it might be too much for daytime. It is well suited for a large chest. At 5'9", 150 I ordered an 8L and it was perfect. I wore flats and it was a bit long but I liked the option of being able to also wear heals.

A soft and beautiful pattern for a spring wedding!
This dress is small in the rib cage but I was surprised that I was able to fit in the 12 after reading the reviews. The 14 probably would have fit better overall but it would have been way too big in the chest. This pattern was perfect for the event, a black tie optional April wedding in Atlanta!

Stunning-in love
I ordered two dresses for my unlimited to try for my sister's wedding. This was the winner. The fit was amazing as was the color/design. Even though I am short, the 12R fit great. You will have to wear at least 3 inch heels to avoid stepping on the dress. The front is a little low cut, but that can be fixed with tape.

The process of ordering a dress and the shipping of it was quick and easy.
The dress is gorgeous. The material is wonderful. It fits everywhere, but in the waist area. It was too tight so I wasn't able to wear it.

Lovely
I rented this for a formal event. It fit fairly true to size. I'm normally a 4-6 and rented the 6T and it was just slightly roomy but not enough to believe that a smaller size would have been the better fit. A larger bust than a C cup also would have looked better in this dress. But the shape is pretty and conservative and the material was nice and flowy. It was lovely; not a wow, but lovely nonetheless.

This dress fit very well! I am 5'3 and it was not too long when I wore heels. I have a 32 DDD bust and it fit perfect, I wasn't squished at all. The dress was light, comfortable and flowed beautifully.

lots of material, didn't wear.
This dress is pretty, but it's SO much material. It's also VERY long. I'm only 5'2 but even with a decently tall pair of heels, I think it would've dragged on the floor. Also... the bust fits weird. I have large boobs (36DD) and I felt like the dress made me look bigger? Not bustier, but overall larger and frumpier, because of how it was cut. It's very pretty on the model... but I didn't wear it to my event.

Gorgeous dress, needed a shrug.
I'm 5'8", 40 F, and mostly evenly proportioned. The 18W Long fit beautifully. I wore super flat sandals, and the dress hit the floor with a slight drag (maybe a 1/2"-1"), still okay to walk in without tripping, and exactly the length I was hoping for. The dress is simply beautiful, with the gorgeous draping around the waist/below the bust that brings in the fabric to define and elongate the waistline before floating out (yes!). The fit was incredibly flattering. I'd agree that it's definitely a better fit for a more buxom chest, though due to having a larger chest, the fabric was pulled away from my underarm, revealing my bra. No bueno and no way to hide it without a wearing a shrug.

The dress was comfortable and fit nicely (good length) but didn't end up wearing it to the wedding.
I loved the dress. It was really comfortable and it fit nicely. I was deciding on what length I needed for a few dresses and the Long* length was plenty long for me (I'm 5 8") with heels. I am definitely full chested and the 6L fit well around my chest but only without a bra. I'm usually between a 6 and 8 and I probably could have gone either way for this one too. I didn't end up wearing it to the event because it wasn't quite dressy enough for the occasion but I would be willing to rent it again for a less formal event.

Beautiful dress!
I'm 5'1 and 130 lbs. The dress was long as previous reviews stated, even with 3 inch heels. I have a bigger bust, so it fit nicely, but it is REALLY fitted around the ribcage to keep that slender hourglass look. Overall, I am happy with the dress.

Beautiful but not great for petites
Rented this for a wedding but didn't end up wearing it. The way the dress lays it's a lot more flattering if you're taller - the criss-cross at the center ended up making me look wider than I am.

Ah-maz-ing!!!
Fit and feel were perfect. I felt like I could have floated around like a fairy. I received lots of compliments and wanted to hold onto this dress forever. I am 5'9.5 and the long would have been better with 3" heels than with the 2.5s I had. Only picture I had was at work where sleeves are a must but the top uncovered is beautiful. I loved the soft, delicate pattern. The airy, full, flowing skirt was my favorite part.

Fit is small, especially if you're more busty. The chest area sticks out a lot and has lines like it doesn't fit. I'm 5'6 and the petite was great for not having tI wear heels too high!

Wore this to work, got so many compliments throughout the day. Accessorized with a black cardigan, leather obi belt, and wedge sandals. Also had to wear a black tank top underneath so the front didn't show too much and was pretty hot all day (can't wear sleeveless at work). Was a little long (I'm 5'4") so had to be really careful getting in and out of my car or going up/down stairs. Very pretty, enjoyed getting to wear it once to feel special for the day.

This dress was amazing for a summer beach wedding. Flattering, comfortable and classy. Fits pretty true to size, I'd recommend sizing down for your second option. It was a bit long on me at 5"6 (with heels), otherwise great fit. I received tons of compliments!!

Fitted but Flowy for Outdoor July 4th Wedding
I rented this dress for a Fourth of July wedding -- where the ceremony was in a Catholic church (formal) but the reception was in a field at a lakeside tent (more casual, hotter, and buggy!) This dress worked in both locations. The skirt of this dress is outstanding (think twirling,) and the print pattern is VERY pretty and I got quite a few compliments. FYI though, the neckline plunges quite a bit, and even with safety pins and some fashion tape I found myself having to keep pulling up the front to keep the "girls" covered. There is no stretch to this fabric, but I thought it fit true to size. I'm giving it only 4 of 5 stars for two reasons: 1.) I had to rent the Regular length (because the Long was not available) and at 5'10" this dress didn't even reach my ankles, so the length looked odd; and 2.) there is extra fabric on the back based on the cut of the dress, so it doesn't lie flat and the stiff zipper actually pushed up the collar area off my shoulders and up my neck. I would rent again, but definitely in the long length.

Dress it up, dress it down, it's a great dress!
Which I am so so sorry I didn't get a photo of - I certainly wore it enough. While the fabric is a little more "event"-like (a crepe as opposed to a jersey or rayon), it worked equally well with heels for the office and a date as it worked on vacation with flat, casual sandals. I'm glad I kept it because, with a jacket, it offered terrific and stylish coverage for a recent trip to more modest locales.

So stunning, the fabric was light and flowy and flattering, perfect for a spring/summer wedding.
Had a little issue pulling the zipper up in both the size I wore and the bigger size. Took a few minutes and alot of jiggling to get it up. Dress in L was very long (in a good way), I'm 5'10" and wore 3.5" heels and it was perfect length, barely skimming tops of shoes.
