Great color and cut!

This dress fit beautifully and was a ton of fun to wear. I got so many compliments at both weddings I wore it to. The dress is made of a nice, sturdy material, so even though I'm full chested, it was fine that I couldn't wear a bra. The only negatives are small ones - the straps are thin and made of a sort of slippery material, so I had to re-tie the dress a couple of times throughout the night. Also, the lining has a strip of a thick sort of mesh at the bottom to keep it down, but also to give the dress some shape. It worked really well for both of those things, but the lining is short so when you sit, the mesh can be a bit uncomfortable. I also had to iron the bottom of the lining when the dress arrived because it was all puckered and kept flipping over. Not a big deal, but definitely necessary. I'm also tall (5'7") and the dress is longer on me that on the model - a true mid-calf length. It was so different and fun to wear - I definitely recommend it!

Such a fun dress!

As always with dresses from RTR, I got compliments ALL night! I wore this to a pretty casual Texas BBQ wedding and it could not have been more perfect. It pretty much looks just like the pictures. I was nervous because I've lost a bunch of weight since I ordered the dress, but the top ties so there's some flexibility there. There is a zipper on the back, but the dress isn't super fitted in the hips. The only thing that bugged me was that the lining on the bottom didn't lay flat on one side. It has a stiff edge to keep the skirt out a bit and the edge kept rolling over on my right. I'm not sure if it could have been pressed so it didn't do that, but it obviously didn't ruin my experience!

Incredible dress!

I rented this dress for the Kentucky Derby and Oaks. It's a very flattering dress. The slip underneath was bent and a little odd but it gave the dress a little more flare. The boning in the side was poking out a little which was uncomfortable at times but I didn't notice it much. I got SO many compliments. Everyone stopped me to ask where I got the dress. I don't want to send it back!

Formal enough for a church but perfect for the reception

I was worried that this dress might show a little too much skin for a Catholic wedding in the church, but it wasn't at all. It was a perfect mix of classy but very chic. I received 4 compliments before I even took my seat for the ceremony. The color was to die for. It was exactly how it looks in the picture, super bright almost a bit orangey. The only thing I wasn't crazy about was this a kind of netting material that's underneath of the dress. It's short and it only went down to about mid thigh but it was super crinkled and although you couldn't tell from looking at it with the lace down, it was just a little uncomfortable the way it was laying on my legs. But that was a minor thing, I would absolutely rent this again. The dress was perfect for a spring wedding. Great length, color and overall style. I got more compliments than I can remember. At least 30 people told me how amazing this dress was. 5 stars..rent this dress! I wore it with nude pumps, simple earrings and a gold clutch.

Great color and fit!

Received a lot of compliments in this dress and the color really popped! I rented a size 6 and 4 and ended up going with the 4. The dress is great because it ties in the back and is adjustable so you can get away with the smaller size! I read previous reviews and was worried about the under slip of the dress being a pain. It seems like it's there to give the dress some shape. It's a little itchy but you can't notice it from the outside of the dress. I would definitely rent this dress again was very comfy as well!

So many compliments! One of a kind dress!

This dress was amazing. It was so unique and I received so many compliments! I usually wear a 0 or 2. All that was available was a 0 and it fit perfectly. I am a 32DD- I wore a sticky backless bra. Loved everything about this dress didn't want to return it!

The best dress I've ever rented

This dress fit so perfectly - once I figured out how to get it on! I didn't need to wear a bra and felt secure and comfortable all night. Beautiful color and fabric. Beware of dry cleaning - the person before me had and it messed up the underskirt. Wish I could buy it!!

Feminine and unique dress

Great dress, sad to return it! Slip didn't quite lay flat but I think that's how it's supposed to be, to give the dress more of a bell shaped skirt. Very flattering and great color. Loved the longer length, was something different. Would rent again!

Dress fit beautifully and I received so many compliments. The red is a very pretty color as well. I'm very tall (5'10") and this dress was the perfect length. The perfect choice for a wedding and very comfortable!

Loved this dress! It was both comfortable and flirty! You are well covered in the front but the back still gives the dress a very sexy feel. I received compliments all night! Wish I could buy this dress!

Perfect dress for a summer wedding.

Could have worn the 4 - but was worried of overindulging at the wedding. I think the 6 was a little big but either could have worked. Got tons of compliments. Loved the length and open back ! Lining came twisted (probably due to dry cleaning ) had to iron that with a towel to flatten it so I could wear the dress ! Heads up!

Flattering fit, great color

This is a great alternative to the lace Self Portrait dress that seems to be the wedding uniform this spring. Was slightly baggy in the chest for me (I'm a 34A/B) but I'd wear it again in a heartbeat. Great color and lots of compliments!

Loved the color for a summer wedding

Great fit and beautiful dress. Biggest concern was the solid under piece on mine did not lay flat. Not sure if this is intentional or a defect but it made it ride up occasionally throughout the night. still got many complements and it was comfortable / breezy for a summer wedding.

This dress is amazing! I received compliments from everyone at the wedding. The lace is gorgeous and the color is bright/fun without being too much. I'm 5'4 so the dress hit mid-thigh. I highly recommend this dress! It won't disappoint!!

This dress was true to size. I have a large chest (36 DD) and it fit well and I didn't need a bra, which is rare! The color is beautiful and I could dance all night without any issues!

Loved the color! Such a great red! Wore it to my sisters rehearsal dinner outside.

Absolutely loved this dress got so many compliments! I wish I could keep it! The lining underneath was a bit short and it bells out to keep the shape of he skirt and it was a bit scatchy. I usually wear a 6 bit the 4 fit me perfectly. Didn't have to wear a bra at all and the back of the dress was so cute with the thin ties.

Fabulous!

I loved this dress! The color is so vibrant! I ended up wearing my backup size because I have slim shoulders. Other comments have mentioned the shift underneath the dress, I found the shift to be misshapen showing much more of my legs than I intended underneath the lace of the skirt. Also, the lace was pulled at the top of the dress I wore from wear. It bothered me, but it's unnoticeable in pictures.

Loved, loved this dress!

I loved wearing this dress and received so many compliments. The reason I gave it 4 and not 5 stars was the slip/liner. It had mesh that was messily sewn on and that kept showing. It was uncomfortable and kept hiking up.

Perfect Party Dress!

This dress was my absolute favorite RTR dress. I felt beautiful all night wearing this dress! The red is a true, cherry red. The dress was fun for a wedding and easy to dance in. As other reviews have mentioned, the boning from the dress did dig slightly into my rib cage, and the band under the skirt to add "poof" did stick out at weird angles. A quick iron helped with this issue though. Definitely thinking of when to rent again as I did not want to return this beauty. Let this be your statement dress for parties and weddings this summer. You'll absolutely love it!

Gorgeous dress! So many compliments

Loved this dress so much!! The color and fabric are both stunning, and the style is so flattering. I was worried it would be too long on my 5'3" frame, but the length was very nice. The back was by far my favorite part! I wish I could've kept the dress for longer.

Perfect fit and fun to dance!

If you are comfortable with showing your back but not legs this dress is great. I got so many compliments and it was very comfortable. I wore a stick on bra which isn't a problem for me but if you are more endowed this dress might pose an issue since no normal strapless would work.

The color was amazing in person and the fit was very flattering (esp for women with fuller chest).

The only criticism I had was difficulty getting into the dress. It's difficult to tie the back and zip without an extra hand. The slip underneath was also a little awkward fit; it had a rough texture and fold that I fidgeted with all night). The color, overall fit and material were amazing. I received a lot of compliments all night. I wore a backless bra (which was not supportive at all) so keep that in mind if you are fuller in the chest.

Perfection for an outdoor/summer wedding

Fit so well I didn't even have to wear a bra which was perfect since the back is open and no one likes to deal with a sticky bra. Like a lot of other reviews mention, the hem on the underskirt is weird and actually got quite uncomfortable any time I was sitting down for a long period of time. I would still totally rent this one again. Beautiful color and perfect fit.

I cannot say enough good things about this dress. I wore this for our engagement photos. Everyone seemed to complain about the underskirt not laying flat in their ratings - ever heard of an iron? Use one. I wish I could have kept this dress it's so stunning. And the color!!! If you're debating about getting this dress, do it

My absolute favorite rental yet!

I have never felt so beautiful and definitely didn't want to send this dress back. I wore this dress for a summer wedding outdoors in July. It fit great and I received SO many compliments. I didn't have to wear a bra, which was great for a hot day outdoors. I agree with all the comments about the lining and the tie strings in the back are a bit short, but nothing that could possibly detract from the beauty and elegance of this dress. Plus the back is a little sexy. Wish I could have kept this dress!

Stand out in this gorgeous dress!

The dress fit great. I went with my normal size to make sure my chest was covered. I had my fiancé pull the straps really tight in the back and wore a nubra with it! I had no problems jumping and dancing all night! I disliked the underlay like other reviewers but it really did not distract from the dress at all. I got compliments all night! Definitely one of my favorite RTR rentals!

I have a strange body type- tiny chest but broad back and large behind. I loved this dress because i didn't have to wear a bra and it was very flattering. There is a strange plastic lining at the bottom but you can't even tell because of the lace overlay.

This dress is absolutely stunning!!!

The fit is true to size, and even if it is a little to big/small the tie back will make it work. My favorite rtr by far and one of the most beautiful dresses I have ever worn!
