Beautiful dress! Fabric was amazing!
Loved this dress! It was more formal than I expected, but I wore it for a date in the city so it didn't matter. My husband was sad I returned it. :-)

Great dress for Spring or Summertime.
This is a beautiful flowy dress that fit true to size with the exception of the straps. I am unsure of who these straps would fit because they are crazy long. What I did was pull the straps together in the back and actually wrapped a black pony tail around them. I wore with a cardigan to work so you couldn't see what I had done with the straps. I also used clothing tape on the top to keep it work appropriate to prevent showing cleavage. I am 5'7" and ordered the normal length and the dress was a good length. I also wore a 4" heel with the dress and it didn't make the dress to short of a length.

I felt amazing in this dress. It fit perfectly. I ended up going with a more conservative dress for the wedding, but I loved the back of this dress!

Beautiful flowy dress! Very low cut though!
I wore this for a rehearsal dinner, and it was my backup dress. I loved the beautiful pattern and the flowy nature of the dress! I did have an issue with the fit of the top of the dress - it's cut too low to wear with a strapless bra and with my chest size I could not go braless. Put it this way, if a small breeze came my way the girls would be joining the dinner! I ended up using a lot of double sided tape, one safety pin, one small hair tie for the back, and then threw a white cardigan over it. Once I did that it was perfect! I got so many compliments from the other guests and also from complete strangers. I felt very pretty and springy in this dress. If you aren't good with a low cut though, you may want to choose a different dress or be ready with double sided tape!

Great dress for bridal shower.
Loved this dress and got a lot of compliments. Was less formal in person than picture showed. Needed sweater because top was too lose. May have been able to figure out but was running very late.

Beautiful dress, but the top is way too big.
I was so excited for my first RTR experience and the dress was beautiful when I first opened it up... The 14 (my normal dress size) was way too big. The 12 fit everywhere except the bust. The top of this dress is entirely too big and I didn't get to wear it, in fear of having way too much exposed at a wedding!

I wore this for graduation, and it was a great fit! Tons of compliments!
Chest is meant for bigger breasts, so may require a little pinning. The long is pretty long, but was perfect floor-length.

Beach wedding beauty
A great dress for a beach formal wedding. I got lots of compliments. Definitely needed tape to keep the dress in place in the front but a little tape went a long way.

Flowy and different for a spring wedding
As the other reviewers have said, this is meant for girls with larger busts. I ordered a size up to fit my belly (where I carry most of my weight) and was fine (not too tight, could sit and breathe), but was constantly adjusting the top throughout the event despite multiple safety pins to keep my "girls" from popping out. I wore both heels (for the ceremony) and sandals (for the reception) and did not have an issue with the length except when trying to go up steps in sandals (kept stepping on it) and my husband stepped on it a few times on accident as it does billow out. If you carry your weight in your midsection, I would order up as the area around the black band does not stretch. If you do not have a large bust, I would definitively have a plan in place regarding safety pins, fashion tape, nipple covers, etc. just to be safe. That being said, it is a beautiful dress and definitely stands out.

I rented this as a back up for my evening wedding shower sit down dinner.
Fits great! great length. I could wear this with heels. I didn't end up wearing it to the event, but it would have been easy to dress this up or wear it more casually too.

Great option for a Spring Black Tie wedding in NYC
This dress, like others have said, has amazing material and it is very flowy and pretty. I received a lot of compliments! It was a actually a little long on me, even wearing 3 inch heels (I am 5'2"), and it was raining which was a bummer, but I would just gather it up when walking outside and it was fine. Also! I am a person who is ok with low cut tops, and wear a 32D bra, and this was very revealing - I had to safety pin it closed, and it still sort of gaped open when I was sitting. Nothing wrong with that, just something to be aware of. Double sided tape may help too!

For a busty lady
This dress was so incredibly large up top that I could cross the straps over my neck and still not get it taught enough to not be totally exposed. The straps are very long, and the bodice is made for a woman with a DD or E cup size. It's gorgeous otherwise, and I really wish I could wear it. It fit well through the waist and was the perfect length for my height.

Gorgeous Dress tons of compliments
I rented this for my friends wedding it was so beautiful. The only issue I had was the straps. They were WAY to big and I had to pin them down to make the dress fit properly. But it was so comfortable and flowy (don't think that's a real word but you know what I mean.) I wore wedges which were great for this dress. Even though it was warm out I didn't feel hot in the long dress. Overall, I highly recommend.

Backup Dress-Didn't wear
Loved this dress. I was actually wearing this one as I was heading out the door to the wedding because my original choice was slightly snug around my ribcage. Loved the etherial skirt and the butterfly print. You couldn't tell they were butterflies all over unless you looked super close. Only problem was with the straps. I sat down in the car and the girls fell out. Had to wear the original dress because there was no saving the chest area!

Very comfortable and I got compliments all night!
I got this dress last minute when my original dress didn't fit. Customer service was so helpful in picking it out! I was unsure of how it would look on me because I look nothing like the model. But when I tried the dress on, it was so comfortable–loose, flowy, lightweight, and ethereal. The color gradient is really beautiful in person. The only problems I had were that the zipper got stuck on the waistband, and I absolutely could not zip it up myself, and the sides of the bodice were slightly baggy and looked kind of bad in photos. I got compliments nonstop all night. I was a little nervous about how low-cut it is (and I definitely got some looks in that direction), but I was able to dance all night with no major concerns. I might recommend some fashion tape if you're worried about showing too much skin.

Florida Formal Beach Wedding
This was a backup dress so not my first or even second choice. I made it work with some temporary alterations to the straps which it definitely needs. They are really long so without tacking them you'd be exposed in front. I also used fashion tape as extra precaution. Once all this was done I was happy with the look and was complimented by the bride.

Beautiful dress for a beautiful wedding
I wore this when I was six months pregnant and it is a very bump friendly style. It was comfortable for a summer wedding and easy to wear. The only tricky part of the fit was the bodice. In order to get the dress over my bump, I had to wear it slightly higher in the bodice which required me to use a safety pin at the top of the straps to pick up the slack. I normally wear a size four, ordered this dress in a six. I am 5'7", athletic build, and 150 at six months pregnant. Overall, a beautiful bump friendly dress.

Gorgeous, but a little large.
As some other reviewers have noted, the shoulder straps were way too long. I pinned them to the correct length and that did the trick for a perfect fit. The dress was gorgeous! I got many compliments. The long length was perfect with my wedge heels.

STYLIST REVIEW
This gown is beautiful. The fabric is soft and pretty stretchy. It fit well through the torso and the hip area is a relaxed fit. This dress however is not for those with a very large bust. I am a G cup and was spilling out of it. Straps do not provide much support either. Overall a really pretty gown, but not for my body type.

I got so many compliments on this dress.
I loved this dress. However, it was a bit big. I'm a small girl 5'4, 125lbs and I normally wear a size 2 or 0. The dress fit really well but for me it was a bit long. I probably would have needed to get it tailored since I kept tripping on the bottom of the dress. I also needed to pin the bust as it was a bit low cut. Overall, it was a beautiful dress and I got so many compliments on it. I would just recommend it for someone a bit taller.

This dress was really pretty, however, i ended up needing to pin the top because it was wayyy too loose, even with the smaller size option. The material and colors were gorgeous though.

Pretty dress
I am 5'8 and ordered the long. In 2 inch heels it was a little too long. There are 2 layers - the first was a little snug but not unreasonably. The second (outer) was perfect. I ended up wearing another choice but I would definitely order this again but in a 6 regular.

Stylist review
Omg, the FABRIC! When I tried this on I was just twirling around in my apartment because I could not get over how gorgeous the fabric is! But anyway, the dress is just everything. However, if you are later than a c cup, I would Not recommend it because it is very low cut. There is no stretch in the fabric, but this could be bump friendly, depending on how high you are carrying. Pair with some marchesa jewelry for a finished etherial look.

Got so many compliments on this dress!!!
As many others said, the top definitely runs big so have safety pins handy and don't expect to wear a bra....but. It was very comfortable. Also does run long so heels are a good idea and I'm almost 5'8"!! Overall great dress and super easy experience....already looking for my next rental!!!

So light and flowy!
This was a backup dress sent since my backup size was unavailable. Definitely big, but felt like the dress ran big. Probably could have gone two sizes down rather than one, but a few pins did the trick and I was able to wear it for part of the wedding weekend. So comfortable and beautiful. Was complimented all night at an outdoor rehearsal dinner. I'm 5'6 and it just grazed the floor with flats.

Fun dress, as I love butterflies!
Great fabric. Fun dress, not too long just the right length. It is low cut, so I wore it with a strapless bra and there was a bit more cleavage then I had planned on, but I wore it to a dinner with friends anyhow...

Wore this to wedding. The girls (38DDD) had plants of room (almost too much), had to fashion a way to tie the straps up, otherwise it was a beautiful dress and I loved it. Wore flip flops an no one knew ;) my idea of a perfect dress!

Love the color and cloth, so glamorous and beautiful.
The dress was too long not just on length but from the shoulder straps as well. My chest was spilling out and was very snug around the waist. I didn't get to wear this as the fit was meant for a taller person, I'm 5'2".

Beautiful but length made too formal for my event
Loved the flow of this dress. I usually wear an 8/10 but often have more trouble with fitted waist styles because of my natural waist so ordered a 12 in this one. Tons of room! Should have sized down. No issues for me with the bust and cleavage overexposure but I have plenty. Also very long on me, total no go without platforms so I didn't end up wearing the dress. Really loved the pattern!

Amazing dress and a real show stopper!
I absolutely loved this dress ! I ended up w this one as a replacement for one that couldn't ship to me for a wedding, and I couldn't be happier!! It was something completely different, and I received tons of complements. I am 5'9 and I wore flats, it reached the perfect length for me w out heels . I did have to tie the top of the straps together because the chest area is super large which was an easy fix but something to be aware of. The material is super light and flows in the wind perfectly . Definitely suggest this dress !

Birthday dress
I ordered this dress for my birthday, I got the regular based on other reviews. The top fit perfect but the dress itself runs extremely long. It worked out since I had three inch heels on but just something to keep in mind!
