Really cute dress that stood out!
I wore this for a wedding and it was perfect. It is actually a corset underneath that attaches with hooks. The dress zips up over the corset. It took a little effort to put on myself, but I did it in the front then flipped it around. The dress photographs well, but I wouldn't recommend if you have a large chest. It was tight in the chest for me and I'm a 34B. Fun alternative to the usual LBD!

Beautiful fashion forward dress
I wore the dress to a wedding and it was a hit. I should have gone a size down for the perfect fit, but the scuba material hide that the dress was a little big pretty well. Its a plus that the dress has pocket for storing your phone. I would love for this dress to be in my closet.

So Many Compliments!
I got so many compliments on this dress at the wedding of two of my favorite people! The shape and neoprene are very in fashion right now, and I loved that the main color was a nice bright yellow, more vibrant than it appeared in the photos. Fit worked well for me, as I have a small ribcage, and though the waist was a smigde short ( I am 5'-10" after all), the proportions were still very flattering. Probably not good for bustier ladies; I'm a C cup and my cups nearly overfloweth. I don't always feel secure in strapless styles, but as you can see, I danced my booty off without a worry. The only negative was that the fabric was a bit stretched out just above the waistline on the dress I received. Perhaps from someone squeezing into a too-small size or a problem with the cleaning. I'm super detail oriented, so no one else seemed to notice, and my partner said it looked fine even after I pointed it out. Overall, a great dress, highly recommended for a fun occasion!

Interesting.
Pros: Fit very true to size; inside bodice includes hooks for secure fit. The length was cute and flattering on a 5'6'' frame (with heels). Pockets! Cons: Material is very thick neoprene, like a foam scuba suit - it's soft but looked & felt cheap to me. The yellow was not as vibrant as expected, it reminded me of faded swimsuit. Not-as-expected.

What an incredible dress. Flattering and distinctive. Cedric Charlier is a star.
Can't imagine how well it'll fit if you have a chest - it's pretty narrow up top. But the dress is incredibly flattering and the length is perfect.

Colors are not as vibrant as the pictures on RTR
I was disappointed in this dress. The colors were washed out light yellow/ivory/blackish with blue. It was not a pretty golden yellow that I was expecting. Also, for women with larger chests, this dress is not for you. True there was a corset, but it didn't do the trick. I had to wear a sweater all evening just to make sure there were no wardrobe malfunctions. On the positive - the dress did have pockets and was not prone to wrinkle. But otherwise, it was a bust.

Really special dress!
The fit is very flattering, especially the length. The color is not what I expected, the yellow is paler than in the official RTR photos. The fabric is neoprene, which is not for everyone but I enjoyed trying something new. I wore my normal size but I would suggest going a size up for the back up size just incase! Really enjoyed getting to wear a Cedric Charlier dress!

Fun to wear!
I needed some help getting into the dress, but that's what husbands are for! I actually loved that it had a built-in corset structure because I felt a bit more secure while dancing. The length was a little long on me - hit lower than the mid-calf shown on the model, but was still short enough to show off the cute shoes. The back had a minuscule tear near the zipper, but you could barely notice it. Definitely recommend this dress!

Such a unique dress- got lots of compliments :)
Because it is made of neoprene, I was a bit hot in the dress. I also thought the material was not fitted on top (mainly due to the material) which was not the most flattering. I still felt like a million bucks wearing this fun, unique dress.

I got compliments from everyone! I was so sad to send this dress back!
Other reviews had said it runs tight in the chest, so I sized up for my backup size, I'm usually a 0/2, but I ordered a 2/4 (40/42). I am a 34B and the 2 was still tight in the chest! So I wore the 4 & it fit great. The bodice inside is so nice so you don't need a bra. The material & pattern were so fun! & I lovvved the pockets! I wore this outside in June & was not too warm in it either.

Compliments from strangers
This dress is so much fun! The fabric and pattern are really interesting. I couldn't tell online if the dark was navy or black - definitely black as captured in the close up which made black heels the easy choice. The inner corset required a helper for dressing and made the dress a bit uncomfortable to wear. It definitely seemed made for smaller breasted women. I loved the front pockets which were cleverly positioned to not add any bulkiness to front of dress. Fabric not at all hot to wear.

Very comfy, surprisingly heavy though.
This dress is gorgeous, though it was surprisingly heavy fabric. I found that it ran a little large, and ended up wearing the smaller of the two sizes I ordered, though I could have gone one size smaller still. I felt like I kept hiking the dress up more times during the night than I cared to do. The detail is a bit more true blue in person than the blue-green I was expecting, but still very beautiful. Slightly longer than how it looks on the model, I found it hit an inch or two lower on my shin than I expected, but probably because I should have worn a smaller size.

Heavy (but not too heavy) Scuba material. The ribbing/corset is a little awkward.
I loved the look of this dress and the style. The material is heavy and a little awkward but not uncomfortable. I got a lot of compliments. I was nervous that the length would be unflattering, but I even wore it with sandals and loved it. Pockets are amazing.

In love with this dress
Such a flattering dress! I loved it so much. I think I could have worn a size smaller but I made this work just fine. It is a bit hard to get on if you don't have help because there are 6 or so eye hooks, but I figured it out. I'd definitely wear this again. I wore it to an afternoon summer wedding reception that was cocktail attire. The material was slightly heavier than I expected, but It was fine. Loved it!

Amazing dress - very feminine
The fit is amazing, the neoprene fabric creates a great fit and flare silhouette. I loved wearing it and wish I had enough money to own it. I'm usually between a 4 & 6 and I wore the 6 equivalent for this dress.

Classy funky and pockets!
The fit was true to size. The 42 would have been perfect but it was unavailable. The color was a bit more fluorescent than the model photo but it still worked. It was super comfortable to wear and had pockets! I got tons of compliments on it!

Gorgeous silhouette, unique pattern, and tons of fun to wear!
I'm usually a size 6 and the 42 fit well, though I needed help getting all the hooks clasped when getting into it. The 44 was far too large in the bust area, and would be better for someone with a larger chest than me, though it otherwise likely would have fit alright as well. The pockets are placed perfectly so that they add a fun detail to the dress without adding bulk. At 5'10", this hit just where it does on the model, so I imagine would likely look a bit too long/not quite floor length on someone shorter. Overall, I adored this dress, the easy fabric, and how I felt in it. Lots of compliments and I'm already mentally calculating how many more times I can rent this before people start to notice that I'm wearing it everywhere!
