It was both Easter and my birthday. The scuba material is great- it won't wrinkle!
Loved the fit, and the material.

Nope, not for me.
The fabric is very heavy and the colors are far more muted than they appear online. Despite being a stretchy scuba fabric, the dress was not very forgiving and didn't fit well at all. Even if it had fit, the colors made it very casual and not appropriate for my event. I sent it back without wearing it and would not recommend.

Felt like a CEO in the stunning dress
First, it has pockets! Second this dress fit so perfectly and moved so beautifully. I loved wearing it to work and thought it was true perfect dress. I would also wear it to a wedding because it was easy to move in and very comfortable. The material is heavy so if you were outside in 80 degree weather it could get hot. I loved it!

Perfect material, but definitely has been worn a few times.
I loved this dress - the material is perfect and very flattering. You can tell from the edges of the material and some spots that this dress (this size) has been worn numerous times from the wear and tare. As some have said the waist line is TIGHT I might have been more comfortable in a size up. Numerous people complimented it and I definitely loved it - my fiancé was the best man so it still matched his tux and the wedding colors. Also .. it has pockets .. LOVEEEEE

Summery fit and flare design is flattering
Enjoyed wearing this for a friend's July wedding. I felt dressy and elegant and also very comfortable and stylish. The dress fit neatly on top and offered enough room on the bottom. As someone who's tall and generally concerned with dresses that fall too short, this was very appropriate and no problem at all. My bra straps showed a bit given the cut so a cross cross or strapless is probably your best bet.

It worked well for all day; never getting uncomfortable.
This fit exactly as expected and was so comfortable. I wore it for a conference that went from 8:30am - 10:30pm. The material is a little bit stretchy making it fit well and move with me.

love love love!
Dresses are always a challenge because I have a full chest. This dress offered a comfy fit on the top while hitting my waist in the perfect spot. It was comfy and had pockets! I got a lot of compliments :)

Flattering but not as comfortable as it looked!
I rented this dress for my first anniversary date. It was the type of dress that can be dressed up or down depending on shoes/accessories, and has a gorgeous pattern! The fabric is stretchy; however, the seem around the waist line is not. After dinner and a couple beers I was pretty uncomfortable in it. Regardless, it was a very flattering dress! I would rent it again if I was going to an event without a lot of food and drinks!

Super comfortable dress with good shape
Print on the dress is unique and fabric is very comfortable. Stomach area has some give and pleats cover post baby belly. Length hit just at my knees. Great rental.

Great dress but too heavy for summer
Didn't work for my event because the material was too thick and heavy. Also, the waist has NO give, which mate it hit awkwardly on my body. Beautiful dress, though.

This dress!
This dress was SUPER comfortable. The 18 fit perfectly around my waist but I did notice that because of the size the top of the neckline would bunch up a little because I am smaller on the top than I am on the bottom. But that didn't deter from how beautiful the dress looked on. It is also a thicker material so there is no worry about seeing edges or curves through the dress. This dress also has pockets! I wore it to a bridal shower and I couldn't have been happier!

Similar to other reviews, tight in the waist
This dress was really nice. I wore it for a cocktail party. The waist is tight and provides no give so may need to size up. Flattering fit and complimented my curvy figure.

Perfect dress for an after work fundraiser
These were marked women's sizes, but didn't run as large as 14W / 16W usually would, especially at the waist. Great thick fabric is soft, colors are vibrant. Lots of complements! Wear a bra that fastens like a halter to be sure straps don't show. Great length, not too short.

Amazing colors
This dress was perfect for a special day at church. Colors in dress popped off the fabric without being loud. Very nice water color blending can be worn in spring, fall or even year-round in Florida :-) Although dress is sleeveless, the high neckline and Aline bottom make it appropriate for any occasion. I added a black skinny belt and royal blue pumps. I will wear this again.

Great dress for work event!
I rented this dress for a networking work event through unlimited. Super cute dress, fits well. I am typically a size 2 or 4 I had put on some weight and size 6 fits perfectly. Dress cinches the waist and looks great. I wore with a belt and a black cardi since it is cold this time of year. Would be pretty with no stockings and nude shoes in the spring. Only complaint, looks a little worn out on the seams.

Whimsical and fun!
This dress is so fun and pretty. It is VERY fitted at the natural waist. Since I have a larger rib cage I couldn't get it zipped up. Bummed I couldn't wear it, but will rent again in the next size up.

So cute and chic!
This dress was even more adorable than I'd hoped - I selected it on a bit of a whim and thought I might wear it to a holiday party, but instead put it on for a day at work with lots of meetings and presentations. The fit & flare style was so flattering and the scuba fabric was lighter but more substantial than I was expecting, and still really comfortable even though it's closely tailored around the torso/ribs. I wore it with a sweater most of the day and then out to dinner and got a ton of compliments. Unexpected hit, hung on to it for the weekend in hopes I might have an event I could wear it to and would definitely consider ordering this or something from the same designer again.

Fun for any occasion
Rented for a rehearsal dinner and was perfect for something fun. The scuba material is easy to wear. It doesn't really run small but the 0 was a bit tight at the waist as there is a piece that is not stretchy around. Perfect otherwise.

I wore this for my first ever TEDx speech and I got so many compliments. So glad I chose this one.
I'm 5'7" and around 125 with a long torso. I got a 2 with the 0 as the backup size. I could fit the 0, but it was too snug when I breathed in deeply, so I wore the size 2. I wore the dress with navy blue pumps and a statement necklace and it was perfect. I love the pockets, which make it easy to keep some lipgloss on hand. It feels really high quality and has some movement to it.

Great dress for so many reasons!!
I ordered this dress for a November baby shower in Louisiana. I ordered the 14 and the 16 and I’m glad I did! The 14 had the perfect amount of a snug fit. The only reason I went with the 16 instead of the 14 is because the midsection-seam does not have as much flexibility as the rest of the dress and I knew I would be sitting and eating throughout the event. The 16 as lose at the top and obviously a little longer but, because of the event, I didn’t mind. If it had been an event with mostly standing I would’ve totally gone with the 14. The scuba fabric is thick enough to keep me warm on the cool day but breathable enough to where I never felt hot. The fabric feels AMAZING on the body and the pattern looks just as amazing. I paired it with a black waist belt to break up the fabric a little. This was my first RTR purchase and I couldn’t have been happier!

All around awesome dress!
Not only did this dress fit perfectly, but it was so comfortable and was a gorgeous color/pattern as well. One thing I really liked about this dress was the fit/flare style - I was able to wear a regular bra and did not need any kind of Spanx or special undergarment. Another thing I appreciated about this dress was the length. I am 5"10," so often times have trouble finding a dress that is an appropriate length on me. The scuba material was really comfortable and not too heavy, but also not too lightweight for a fall wedding. I paired the dress with a pair of royal blue heels, simple earrings and a few stacked bracelets. I am not one to rent the same dress twice, but would seriously consider getting this one again! I would definitely recommend this dress to anyone looking for a comfortable, but cute dress for an upcoming event.

this colors are so vibrant!!!
previously, i had rented a different dress from this same designer in the same size, and this one fit a little bit smaller. The waist was tight on my ribcage with NO give. However, the fit and flare style was very complimentary, and the colors are amazing!

Cute dress for any occasion
All around the neckline, under the arms, and waist the material appeared to be frayed. I did not end up wearing this dress to my event because the size sent didn't fit so, I traded it in at the Flatiron Rent the Runway store. However when I brought up the frayed look to the representative, she said that was the style of the dress. I did not expect that based on the photos online and the past reviews, so just be warned!
