Really pretty but too small
This dress was really pretty but I could not have comfortably worn it. The fabric is thick, doesn't breathe, and there is no stretch. I usually wear a size 2 and ordered a small which is supposed to be a size 4 but it was way too small all around. I think it would be much more comfortable and flattering on someone who is straight and narrow and would work best in cool weather.

TIGHT! Fabric doesn't give
After reading the other reviews, I attempted to change my size from S to M. Unfortunately, S wasn't available. I couldn't even get it over my head. There is no give to the fabric. I was expected a jersey type feel. Returned it before event. The cut looks amazing. Be sure to order a size up unless you are a true skinny mini.

Super Tight Fitting
This dress was super duper tight. I wanted to wear it for a rehearsal dinner, but was not able to. I ordered this dress in a M and it was really clingy and shows every single curve that can be unflattering. I even had someone try it on that was a small and it was still pretty tight.

Stunning dress, just too small!
I rented this dress as a back up dress for a fall wedding in Lake Tahoe. I wanted this dress to work, but the 'L' size wasn't too kind to my 8-10 figure. The material is thicker than I expected- almost Spanx like- which was an added plus. It was definitely too tight in the chest area to be comfortable for my event. Beautiful dress, but just not my size. I rented it to pair with the Kendra Scott Fenton Phoenix Necklace. The necklace really complemented the simplicity of the dress.

Flattering, but runs small
I loved this dress on, but the sleeves were a little too tight and the dress was a lot shorter on me than in the picture. It's very flattering on as well, but does not have a lot of stretch to the material. I ordered the Small and the Medium was out of stock or that would have been my backup size. It probably would have fit better in a Medium. Ultimately, even though it was flattering, I didn't wear it because it was a little uncomfortable and just slightly too short due to the V in front.

RTR is SO easy! And I was told I looked like a million bucks!
Incredibly flattering - definitely a show-stopper! Not as stretchy as you'd expect so definitely get back up size 1 size up. I'm usually a size 6 and wore a small - couldve used a medium. Felt tight but didn't look too tight so i was able to pull it off. I'm 5'8" and it rode up a little bit but once I got used to the front crossing fabric, it was fine. Oh, and spanks just make it look better and actually make it more comfortable :)

I loved this dress - perfect for a fall wedding!
The color and style were perfect for a wedding on a chilly fall day. It was incredibly comfortable and appropriate cocktail attire. I normally wear a small but ordered a medium based on reviews that this dress runs small (it does), so the medium fit really well. Definitely would recommend this dress!

Very flattering
This is a great dress for both curvy and slender women. At 6 feet tall and a size 2, I was concerned that I might look like a stick in it :). On the contrary, it hugged my body in all the right places and showed off my legs in the most flattering way :). The downside.... If it gets wet (I got one of my sleeves wet), the fabric turns noticeably darker than the rest of the dress. So make sure you have a full proof antiperspirant, otherwise it will be very noticeable!!!!

LOVE this dress. Great color, perfect for a Fall wedding.
I do LOVE this dress, but the closest next size, Small, wasn't available so I stuck with XS. Based on other reviews, it seemd that would work, but due to my height, I found myself pulling the dress down all night, as it was a tad short. While it fit snug, I received a ton of compliments. Ultimately, I would definitely have been more comfortable in a size Small. If you're tall, go one size up!

Great dress, sexy!
I actually didn't wear it (it was my back up choice) but what a great dress! A bit too sexy for the baby shower I was attending but my husband LOVED it. Pretty short, VERY form fitting. Love the color, great for fall. I will rent this again for a more appropriate event!

A little too "sexy" for the rehearsal dinner I attended, but it's a great dress for date night.
I wasn't in love with this dress. I ordered a M because I'm between a size 2/4, but I probably would have been more comfortable in a L (it was my back up so I only was able to order one size). The burgundy/plum color, however, is gorgeous and I love the long-sleeved look.

Everyone loved the dress as much as I did!
The dress has 0 (zero, zilch, nada, none) stretch. I ended up going with the larger size just to make sure I could breathe and get in and out of it. The ruching adds curves to any figure (including mine) that lacks hips, and hides those small lumps and bumps. The dress on the hanger doesn't do it justice! Once you put it on, you'll LOVE it!

This dress was perfect for a conservative fall wedding!
As other reviewers have said it is a tight fit. If you have a bra size bigger than 32A and a waist size bigger than 25" go up to a S. Also be very careful with deodorant when trying on the dress because it discolors the rayon. Once it was on it looked beautiful and I dressed it up with a big crystal necklace.

This dress fit like a glove...the perfect combo of classy and sexy.
I wore this dress for my brothers wedding rehearsal and it was a hit. The color is true to the model's picture (my picture just came out more purple in the lighting). I ordered the xs and S. I'm typically an xs at places like Bebe but I definitely went with the small for this dress. It fit beautifully but if you have a larger bust be prepared to wear a bra with no padding whatsoever because there isn't an inch to spare. I would wear this dress again and recommend it to others.

I ordered what I thought was my size. One size larger was not available. I could not get into it. I would suggest ordering a size up. It has very little stretch. Looked super cute! Too bad I couldn't wear it.

cute dress for a winter wedding
Believe everyone when they say it runs small!! I am a 0, often times a 00, I would have ordered the small for a backup but it wasn't available so i was stuck with an XS. It fit but it was TIGHT. Loved the dress though. Very flattering cut.

Great fall/winter dress
I liked this dress and in the end am glad that only the medium was available, because there is no way the small would have fit, even though I am usually between a 4 and a 6. Even in the medium, this dress was very tight, and could be a little short in the front wrap section depending on how you were standing/sitting (for someone tall like me, at least). The dress was very flattering and versatile enough to be worn to lots of different types of ocassions.

Wanted to love this dress..
I wanted to love this dress for my engagement party, rented it months in advance. I wasn't a fan of the fabric, by the seam it had started to come undone and I couldn't wear it. My engagement party was on a Sunday on a holiday weekend, so I couldn't get any help from RTR. I wore a dress I rented for a wedding the next day on NYE. Cute dress in photographs online, wasn't a fan in person sadly :(

Didn't work for me!
This dress is pretty but it runs SO incredibly small. I saw that others had written that in their reviews, but only the small was available, so I chanced it - to no avail! I am almost always a true size, and I couldn't even breathe when I had it on. Had to return.

Sexy and work appropriate at the same time!
I wore this for my company Christmas party and could not have been more happy with it! I felt sexy in the dress while still feeling like I was dressed appropriately for a work function. A little warning for future renters the fabric doesn't have much give and I felt the dress ran small so size up! Thanks RTR!

So Sexy!
I was anxious and scared to get this in the mail because of the reviews I'd read regarding the fit. I really wanted to wear this to a February wedding and thought id play it safe with a medium... of course it wasn't available, so I prayed the small would fit. It did! PERFECTLY. I had trouble getting it over my head, but once on, it was like a second skin. The dress does have some stretch in the torso, but the arms are snug. This dress doesn't hide anything. I loved it and wanted to wear it forever. I would definitely rent this again.

Gorgeous color, very flattering!
The dress is really tight, but the material is very forgiving and holds you in pretty well. The ruching on the side and tulip skirt give it a great look. The deep purple and long sleeves made it perfect for an end-of-winter wedding. Loved it!!

Great fitting & Classy
Rented this dress for my friends bridal shower. Defiantly runs small!!!! I rented the medium and large and wore the large. I could of probably worn the medium but it is very hard to get the dress on and I was scared of ripping it. The dress isn't too fancy but isn't too casual either. Overall though I loved the look and a detail of the dress in front. Would totally recommend this dress to anyone!

LOVE this dress- great blend of conservative and sexy.
One of my favorite RTR rentals. I almost always wear an XS/0 and rented both the XS and S in this dress, both fit, but I chose the small since the draping hung better and the arms were not quite as tight. You may want to consider sizing up as this ran smaller than I expected. The dress was a great fit on me and the perfect length for me 5'4" frame. The color was amazing.

This is a really cute idea for a dress, but it runs incredibly small - couldn't wear it!
I normally wear a 6, and am 5'7" and athletically built (small waist, but muscular legs and shoulders/arms) so I rented this in a small and a medium. I could barely struggle into the medium, and the sleeves felt really tight and a little short on my arms. The waist was okay, but the skirt also seemed too short for a woman my height in size medium (the middle of the inverted V was just a few inches below my hoohah). Loved the idea of this dress, but there was no way I could wear it. If you rent it, maybe order 1 size up and 2 sizes up just in case. Luckily, I had ordered a RTR backup dress too, and that one was perfecto.

Unfortunately I couldn't wear either dress - but I am going to try it out again:)
This dress was very cute. The fabric was a little thicker than I was expecting - but not in a bad way. However, I could not wear it. I am 5' 11" and it was way too short in the front. Maybe if i were going clubbing our out in vegas it would have been ok, but it was way too short for me for my sister's engagement party. It also runs small. I weigh 145lbs and usually wear a 8 (sometimes can fit 6s) and the Large just fit, was almost too tight over the boobs. All in all this would be a perfect dress for someone shorter.

Runs Small!
I thought this was so cute on the site but when i got it in person I could not wear it. The fabric has no stretch at all and runs small. The large would not work and I ended up not wearing it all but thankfully ordered another dress from RTR that worked very well.

RUNS SMALL!
I wish I would have paid more attention to the details of the reviews. This dress was way to small for me. I usually wear an XS or 0 but with this one I should have gotten a small. I was able to get the dress on and zip it up but it was entirely too tight and the front was way too high and continued to ride up. The color is pretty and the cut is flattering, but it is imperative that you order a size up!

Will dream about this dress.
I was not able to order the small, because it was all sold out-so I risked it and just got the XS. Very sad that I didn't fit, because it is just as pretty in person as it is online. Thank you go-to-girl Katie for helping me get two other dresses overnighted to replace this one for my event. Love this site. RTR is my go-to for all dresses.

Couldn't even get on!
OMG this runs sooooo small! All my dresses sized S, M, L are either S or M. Again, I went up in size to be safe. This is so tight with no give, that I couldn't even get into it! Even with help! I'd say it runs two sizes small! Very disappointed.

Did not get to wear this dress
I ordered the XS and S in this dress but at the last minute the S became unavailable. I was nervous about the XS since all the reviews said it runs small. Not only does it run small but there is no stretch in the fabric. It was the most difficult dress ever to put on and take off. It felt like wearing a straight jacket. I was able to get the dress on but it looked horrible in the chest area because my chest was squished. I wear many different brands (Herve, BCBG, Bebe, DVF, Alice and Olivia and more) and I am always a 0, XS, or sometimes XXS and the XS in this dress was too small. So yes, the dress does run small. Do not rent with a larger backup size. This should have been made in a stretchy material. I think half the problem is the difficulty of getting the dress on and off. Poor design. Very disappointed. I probably wouldn't wear anything from this line again.

Sexy dress, but way too small
I had been dying to try this dress because I think it is absolutely gorgeous. I usually wear a size small or a 4 in department store dresses, so I thought I would be fine with a large (based on the reviews that said it ran small). It was WAY too tight for my liking. Even with Spanx, I felt like it was just not flattering at all. I'm very curvy and I think it just made my hips look too wide. I was so disappointed because it's a stunning color and perfect for the fall, when I was going to wear it. If you are very petite, or have a straight up and down figure, I would definitely recommend it.

fabric is unforgiving
The arms on this dress were so tight I couldn't wear it and I'm petite. the fabric has absolutely no stretch. Although this dress is gorgeous unless you are extremely think and taller it is hard to wear.
