I didn't choose to wear this, but I did try it on.
This dress was brand new, with the price tag still on! It was very pretty, and for a smaller busted woman it accentuates what you've got. I may have needed to shorten the straps a bit to tighten up the top. It has a rather form fitting under layer, so you may want to go up a size if you try it. The thing that stood out the most was that it was long. I'm 5'5", and even with 3-4" heels it was still long. The material was light and pretty, just like in the photos!

Gorgeous dress - looked like something a Greek goddess would wear!
This dress is beautiful, original, elegant, and very flattering. That being said, it's made for something 5'10" - literally off the runway. Given that I'm 5'4", it was swimming on me. I actually sewed the straps down to the back of the dress (lifted it up about 4 inches) and then it was absolutely perfect (and don't worry, I took the strings out after I was done and nobody's the wiser!). Once it was lifted up on my shoulders, I was able to wear 4 inch heals without it dragging on the floor. Anybody 5'8" or taller, get this dress and you will not be sorry. 5'2 or below, don't even bother. And anyone between there should do so only if they're willing to get creative with safety pins or needle and thread.

Love this fabric!
Beautiful dress. The fabric is so dreamy. Top is a little too big and very low cut as noted. Yes fashion tape is a must but lovely and worth it! Im sure I will continue to rent this all season.

Beautiful dress, perfect for a garden party!
This dress was stunning. Beautiful and flowy, the colors are exactly as pictured. The only downside was that the top ran very large. The length & zipper were perfect, a true size 10. But the top drooped to wear it showed any strapless or sticky bra. I noticed that it looked like previous renters pinned the front for a bit more modesty. I ended up just tying up the back to make a racer back and covering it with my hair. It looked great and I got ton of compliments!

I like the color scheme of this dress but being flat chested I felt like I couldn't wear a bra underneath. Also it was a little too long for me as I am only 5 ft 2

Beautiful colors, perfect billowing skirt.
Gorgeous blush colors, perfect for the early summer wedding in Northern California. Top is a bit blousey, I used fashion tap to keep the top from being to revealing. Would recommend getting a size down as well.

Unforgettable dress
At first I was worried this dress might be too white for a formal wedding, but in person it's much more pink/grey/violet and you can see the beautiful butterfly design. Even though I am rather short, the length was perfect on me with normal height shoes. I can't express how much I loved this dress! The straps were a little long but I just tied them up in the back and then they held up my bust nicely. The silhouette of this dress is stunning - cinches under the bust with a sort of empire waist, so it hide any potential lower body issues, and highlights your best assets! I wish I could wear this dress over and over again!

Lovely flowing dress. Great for a day out or a fancy occasion.
I loved this dress, I found it to be a very big in the bust and I have a D cup breasts. I ended up having to wear a camisole under the dress because otherwise the cleavage was too much (and I am a cleavage girl) Aside from that , this dress was perfect.

Lovely dress
A bit formal for a wedding but I felt very pretty and received many compliments. I had to wear a cami underneath for modesty but otherwise a great dress. It was a lot of fun to spin and dance in. The length was good with wedges.

I felt like a princess.
The top of the dress is very awkward as others indicated. It is very large. I ended up having to loop the two straps around one another and pin then together to lift the top. I wore one size up from normal to fit the midsection of my body appropriately but the bust was very large. After pinning it, I loved it. The length was perfect for heels but too long for flats, but I'm short so that's a normal struggle for me.

Beautiful, flowy and well made!
This dress was amazing. I felt like a princess in it. It is a little bit big in the top area, but a simple safety pin will fix that. The dress is fitted at the rib cage then flows out at below that. The material is fabulous and the colors are brilliant! I loved this dress and will rent it again.

Beautiful gown but top too awkward.
Wanted to love it. Top of gown WAY too big, I am a true size 8 (5'9" 145 lbs 36D - so usually the top of a dress like this is snug on me) and the cut on top of gown was enormous. Might have worked with a Cami but that also changes look of dress. Did not wear b/c top was just too awkward.

Easy to wear
This dress was great and easy to wear. I had just had a baby and finding something that fit was difficult. That being said I'm not giving it 5 stars because the straps are VERY long and the top needs fashion/double stick tape. I had to rig the strips shorter and tape it down. So as long as you are prepared for that it's a great dress. Oh and I am 5' 7' and I chose a long...the dress was way too long! I should have chosen regular.

The dress was beautiful. However the straps were to long which caused the bust area to hang too low.

Beautiful Bridal Shower Dress
I wore this dress for my bridal shower. It arrived new with tags. It cost almost as much as my wedding dress! The material was ethereal, I felt like twirling all day. The dress did run long, I am 5'9 and often maxi dresses are shorter on me, but I had to wear wedges with this dress to keep from tripping. I wore the dress without a bra, just used a small safety pin to hold the front together.

This dress was a backup rental as the first 2 I rented did not fit, and I was SOOO happy I got it!!! I wore this to a beach wedding and everyone was complimenting me all night and asking me where the dress was from. The fabric was beautiful but super light so I never felt too hot or constricted and was able to dance the night away in it! I ended up wearing no bra and bobby pinning the strap just to keep myself in but it fit really true to size.. would totally rent again!

I loved all the compliments and staying cool when it was 90 degrees.
PROS: Beautiful, cool and breezy, sexy, easy to zip without help, lots of compliments. I'm 5'9" and the long length was maybe a dash too long even with heels (not so long that I tripped but long enough that I was thinking about it), so if you're even an inch under 5'9", I wouldn't recommend the long. CONS: It needs to be pinned in the front unless you want the world to see your boobs or your bra but then you can tell it's pinned or taped. I was with close friends so I just wore a bright pink bra and let it happen, but it definitely got a lot of attention. It wasn't too bad with no bra, just don't lean over.

Absolutely gorgeous dress!
I truly loved this dress, but didn't wear it. I worried the cut was a risk as a 34D girl. There was just too much exposure for me to feel comfortable wearing to a family wedding...where I would be dancing. Having said that, the material is beautiful, the print lovely, and the drape made you feel like a princess! I'm envious of the person who gets to wear this dress - wasn't meant to be for me.

Absolutely gorgeous dress but very low cut, at least on me. Maybe if I had bigger boobs I would have filled it out more. But as a 36B the top was very lose and low

Gorg!
This was my husbands fav rental so far. The top was a little "loose" like I read in the reviews, but I think it's supposed to be that way. I pinned the straps in the back and the dress didn't flatter my chest as well as it did not pinned with no bra. I used double sided tape at the plunge on the dress to keep it from opening and then to each ta-ta. The girls didn't come out and it was perfect! Small B

Perfect!
I loved this dress and got so many compliments. The length was perfect for me (I am tall and enjoy heels). The top bustier was loose and I had to use tape to keep it in place. So if I recommend you do the same if you have a small bust and plan on wearing a bra.

Great dress!
I'm 5'10" and was concerned with the dress being too short. The length was perfect with flats! I weigh 145 lbs and wear a 34D. I rented both the 2L and 4L and ended up wearing the 2L. It was a little loose in the bust area, but I was able to secure everything with fashion tape. I got compliments all night long :)

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 !

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!

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".

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!

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...

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.

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!!!

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.

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.
