Beautiful dress! Perfect for a beach wedding!

I loved this dress. I would have kept it if I could. It was wonderful for a beach wedding in Florida. I got tons and tons of compliment, and felt so beautiful!

Beautiful!

I really liked this dress. The V neck was a tad lower than I had anticipated. While this dress is certainly a-line the lining is more of a sheath style and felt noticeably tight. The print on the dress is fun and the lace detail along the neckline is a nice touch. Overall, I would rent this dress again.

Perfect for a summer event!

This dress was so fun and colorful. My only complaint was the straps were a little long but I have small shoulders. Would be good for someone more busier than me:). Otherwise it was comfortable and photographed well!

Great dress for opening day!

Wore this to opening day at Del Mar. Really comfortable, cool cotton dress. It's a little tight in the bust (no bra possible here!) and the zip over the belt is a bit tough. In all though I got so many compliments from strangers - oh and did I mention the pockets? Paired wonderfully with the Ashley necklace. Thanks again RTR!

Great for casual outdoor wedding.

The fit was tts. I normally wear a 4 or 2, but usually a 4 because I have a big rib cage. This dress fit perfectly. I wore it to an outdoor summer wedding and it kept me cool I had no issues. I also received many compliments.

An old woman asked me if I sewed it myself. I must have a crafty reputation?

I wore this dress to one of my best friend's bridal showers, and then to a Labor day party directly following. This was my back up dress for the other dresses I ordered that were unavailable at the last minute. I ordered the 10 because in Lilly Pullitzer and other brands a 6 will fit my waist, but often an 8 is tight on my bust. I could have absolutely worn an 8 in this dress, maybe even a 6. The one small issue I had was that my bra (a normal VS bra with vertical straps) stuck out on the sides.. I think a smaller size would have fixed that. This dress is perfect for large hips and small waist ladies - if I purchased this dress i would have had it taken in about 1.5 inches in the waist. I received compliments from every age group - most people thought the sea urchins were fireworks, so this would be perfect for a summer holiday. Highly recommend - I wish this dress was a permanent fixture to my closet!

Wore this to our wedding rehearsal / dinner.

Dress ran a little large. I normally wear and 4 or 6 depending on the designer. Even wearing the 4, the chest area was a little large. Wearing a padded bra helped fill out the top. Otherwise, the dress is great! Love the design, perfect for the summer.

Not for us short-torso gals

Sadly, I didn't get to wear this dress to my bridal shower, as I'd planned. First, it took my fiance and me 20 minutes to get the zipper zipped because it was really poor quality and soo sticky. We kept trying to pull it up, down and start again-- a headache. It wasn't a fit issue, that part of the dress fit fine once I was zipped in, but knowing he wouldn't be around the day of the shower, that was a big risk. Also, it is definitely not for my fellow short-waisted gals. lots of room in the straps and an all around unflattering fit up top, since it's meant for someone with a longer torso than me for sure. Bummer, because the print is really lovely.

Didn't wear it, but it's a lovely dress!!

This was my back up dress for a wedding that I ended up not wearing. Partly because my other dress was too perfect, but also because the dress was way too large on me. I range from a 2 to a 4, but rented only the 4, because the 2 was unavailable. This dress is so sweet and very pretty! I think it'd look so pretty on taller girls, because the dress is rather long. I am 5'4 and it was past my knees. I did really love the detail and colors of the dress. Very unique and sweet!!

Pretty colors and a fun dress! I got lots of compliments.

The dress was a little big in the bust for me. I am petite so the straps were a little big and the dress did not fall on me right. When I sat down you could see the straps come up. Cute dress but did not fit me right.

Pretty dress but runs large

Very pretty dress. However, I had to return it. It runs large and no belt or magic tape could make it work. The material is a little stiff, so the dress has to fit you very well or you end up looking like you're wearing an umbrella.

Not flattering on petite size person. I ended up not wearing it.

The mid section is too long so the fit was very awkward for me. It may be better suited for a taller person.

Cute dress, long straps

I received this dress because my other dress wasn't available. I liked the print of the dress, but I wish they had it in petite. I'm pretty small in my shoulders and upper torso and the straps were way to long. I tried to pin them but the fabric was so thick it didn't work. The skirt was great, and the print was nice just didn't fit the best.

Great dress.

I loved this fun dress. It has tons of material and looks great dancing. I got tons of comments. The bodice has no give but the larger size fit. I am 5'10 so dress fit me fine but maybe long on shorter girls.

I rented this for my husband Celebration of Life.

I did not wear this dress both dresses ran small, I rented a 4 and a 6. I was so looking forward to this dress for his Celebration on Life, we had a Hawaiian theme, due to him being a surfer. I will be renting again I guess I was not sure about the Designer sizes. I will be renting again tho.

Loved!, But not good if you are busty

I loved this dress! But It was too tight in the bust. It gave me a uniboob like a sports bra. I should have gotten the back up size in the next size up (the 8), but I didn't think about it because I am a solid 6 in most everything. That would have probably fit perfectly and I would have gotten to wear this awesome dress. Definitely size if if you are busty or get the back up size in the size up!

The colors are amazing!

The bust was a little tight (surprisingly) but it had awesome support. I was able to get away with wearing a regular bra with it too! It was so cute and girly and I love the bit of poof the skirt has. The colors are so vibrant in person and the pattern is so cool! I liked the material too. I got nothing but complements all night, as I always do when I rent from RTR!!! It was perfect for an outdoor spring wedding, and the crochet detail in the bodice was beautiful and just added a little bit of visual interest. I would absolutely recommend this dress!

Perfection!

I rented this dress for a wedding and LOVED it! I got a ton of compliments from other guests and complete strangers! I ended up wearing the 8 because I felt like I couldn't breathe in the 6. (For once "The Girls" we're too big!) This dress is perfect if you're looking for comfort, wanting to dance the night away, but still stand out with the spectacular splashes of color!

Tight up top

This dress was beautiful, I really wanted to wear it. Unfortunately it was WAY too tight around the girls for me to zip up. Even the 12 wasn't enough slack. If you are smaller up top it will be perfect. This dress really is gorgeous.

Lovely full skirt and print

I loved the print and shape of this dress. Really emphasized cleavage in a non-tacky way. However it would not zip (I got it in an 8 and have 34DDs) up the boobs! I would stay away if you are particularly busty.

Cute pattern. Durable and high quality fabric and construction. Skirt is too poofy. Straps too long.

Ordered for July 4th outdoor party because the coral looks like fireworks. The colors were more pastel than I expected; I wanted them brighter. Pros: Durable (almost denim-like but very breathable) fabric, high-quality construction and tailored fit, unique print Cons: Straps too long for small bust (I safety-pinned them), Too much fabric for the skirt was not flattering my hips, Hard to plan for jewelry because of the multi-colors

The 4 vs. 6 didn't have much difference, but I chose to wear the 6 to have a little more room for the bosom. I loved the pockets and full skirt.

Fun pattern, great for a beach themed wedding

The pattern on this dress is amazing and unique! I also loved that it has pockets, especially to keep my camera ready during the wedding. The cons are that if you have a bigger bottom than top, it can be challinging to get it to fit right. I ordered the 6 & 8 because I'm in between sizes. The 6 was about 1/2 inch too small on my ribcage area and I just couldn't get it on. It fit perfectly on top, if I could've zipped it up. The 8 was too long and big in the bust area for me, so I ended up pinning it in the shoulders. My hair covered it up, but it was a pain to get the pins in because the material is so thick. I would still highly recommend this dress, especially for a beach themed wedding!

Not my favorite...

Unfortunately, it was cuter in the photo than in person. The material was heavy and way poofier than I thought it was going to be. The fit was just okay - a size 0 was a bit too tight and a size 2 fit well at the waist but was SUPER loose in the bust. Sad day! I had such high hopes for this dress too!

Runs small, tight in chest

I am usually a 12 and I ordered a 10 and 12 based on the reviews. The 12 was tight in the bust which was a first for me, I'm a 36C and never usually have this problem.

Great for a beach wedding rehearsal dinner!

I love this dress! The fit was a little on the small side. I usually wear a size 4 or 6, but ended up wearing an 8 based on the reviews. I have a very large chest, and there isn't much give in the fabric. The fit in my chest was snug but still looked great! I loved that I could wear a regular bra! The fabric is a little heavy, but I didn't mind it even in the summer heat for an outdoor wedding rehearsal on the beach. I absolutely loved the pockets and the full pleated skirt. The dress photographs beautifully! I received so many compliments and I would definitely rent this dress again.

Pretty dress for a summer wedding

This dress was not quite what I expected. I assumed that it zipped up the back, making it easy to pump in, but it zipped on the side. This required me to get more undressed that I wanted to at a wedding. This dress seemed a little more snug across my waist and the straps were a bit long for me. I have a shorter torso, so that is probably more indicative of my body type than of the cut of the dress. The colors were pretty and the neckline was flattering. I used my birthday promo code, so the dress only cost me $15. I'm not sure if I would have been as satisfied with the dress if I had paid full price to rent it. I wore it with a nude wedge and a coral cardigan, but don't have pictures because we forgot to take some!

Very cute, but runs small!

This dress runs small in the upper body. My usual size fit, but was very tight. I am bigger on top, and the chest area ended up not being appropriate for the event I rented for, so I didn't end of wearing the dress. However, the dress was beautiful, and I would have worn it otherwise. If you're bigger on top, I'd recommend going up one size in this dress.

Cute dress, tiny top

I ordered 2 sizes for this dress but sadly neither fit. I was able to get the size 8 on (typically a size 6) but I couldn't wear a bra and there was a bit of "overflow" up top. The rest of the dress fit great and looked just as I had hoped. Sadly I hadn't tried the dress on until late in the night so it was too late to order a size up to be overnighted.

Not great for large busts

This would be adorable on ladies with small chest. I looked cramped even in the 6 and the zipper had difficulty zipping, even though there was plenty of room

Great Fit!

This is a great daytime dress! The print is really beautiful and the fit of the dress is super easy! It is very fitted at the waist, so if you have a slightly larger rib cage definitely size up in backup! It hit me at my knee, and I was able to wear a standard bra. This dress would really work for any body type, especially if you are curvier!

Comfortable, cute, colorful

I rented this for a daytime graduation event. I sized up from my normal size 8 (had a 10 and 12) as a prior review said the bodice was very fitted without a lot of give, and I wear 36D bra. I probably could have worn the 8 but I ended up with the 10 anyway, it fit pretty well but was a bit loose in the waist. It wasn't a big deal though, still looked nice and was really fun to wear. I loved the colors and got lots of compliments.

Great dress!

This is a structured dress with no give in the bodice. Although it ran true to size on me, size up if you have any concerns. I wore this to a beach wedding in Coronado and received many compliments at the wedding and on the pictures I posted. The colors are fun and photograph well. The pleating may make full hips look fuller. One other note: the 12 came to just above the knee on me. The 10 was slightly shorter. I am pretty conservative so I liked that the neckline wasn't very revealing and the hem came down much lower on me than on the model.
