The Color of the dress was wonderful! Very comfortable, being strapless, lots of compliments!

I wore with a regular strapless, cute pockets, heavier material, so great for formal, colder seasons The zipper got stuck towards the top of dress

Felt like a princess!

Full disclosure, this was not my first choice dress, but I ended up loving it! I had previously reserved a different Cynthia Rowley dress of the same style, but different fabric. Based on the reviews of that dress I sized up, which was a mistake. The excellent and responsive team at RTR sent me this dress overnight, in the correct size, as a replacement. Moral of the story, get your true size. Initially I was apprehensive about the color...I don't consider myself a 'pink person', but it ended up being perfect for a spring wedding. A received endless compliments, from people of all ages. The bride's grandmother even approached me and wanted to feel the fabric, it's very unique and pictures do not do it justice. It is a heavy weight fabric, so I wouldn't recommend for a summertime event in a warm climate. I'm so glad I stepped out of my comfort zone and gave this dress a chance!

I received so many compliments and I felt beautiful.

I could not have pictured myself in another dress for my event. It was glamorous, perfect and very unique. The dress hanged perfectly for me since I was tall. The pockets were my favorite!

This dress was everything! So comfortable, simple and stunning. Compliments through the roof !

Wore this to a Southern evening wedding. The pockets are such a plus, keep that lip gloss on you! Material is heavy but I was never hot.

Wonderful service with RTR

This was a backup dress that I chose after there was a problem with my original order. Customer service was great! The dress was fabulous, a smaller size would have fit better with the chest. POCKETS!! This dress had me sold by having pockets. Major plus! The way it flowed was absolute Runway material. 10/10.

So many compliments!

This dress was a show stopper. I never received so many compliments on a dress. The pockets were perfect as I was able to hit the dance floor hands free and then pull on my phone just in time for some selfies and pictures with the bride/groom/friends. My only complaint is that I had to pull up often but otherwise I was completely comfortable. The fabric is heavier which was perfect for a cool spring wedding. Amazing!

This dress was beautiful, I got so many compliments at my sorority formal!

I do have a fuller bust, so the top was a little tight (the fabric doesn't have any give). Also, I am 5'1" and I wore 4" heels and the back of the dress did still drag a little, but nothing too crazy. It still looked great! Last but not least, it was AWESOME having pockets in this dress, so convenient!

Getting to wear a designer dress to was amazing! Everyone (even strangers) complimented my dress!

The bottom of the dress does drag some depending on your height (I'm 5'5") and it can get a bit dirty. The fit is also a bit boxy but that's expected considering the thick material. Overall, I loved it! It was classy and dainty!

Pockets MADE the dress!

Perfect for the girl on-the-go during an event! So comfy, great fit, style and color. I received tons of compliments all evening on how beautiful the dress was and how the pockets MADE the dress. It was everything I hoped for and more! Highly recommend this gown!

So many compliments!

I got a 0R, this was still a little big on me but, I'm very small in the bust and waist. We made some temporary adjustments to keep it from falling for the night. It was gorgeous! I got compliments from everyone, including complete strangers! I felt beautiful! It's interesting without taking away from its wearer. Prom was a success!

Perfect for prom, I completely felt like a princess !

I loved this gown ! I was getting compliments the whole evening! And the pockets, probably the best part! The reason why I give it 4 stars instead of 5 is because the zipper was very difficult to get up, because of the design of the dress it kept on getting stuck. I had plenty of room left in the dress but still needed three people to help zip it up! Other then that, the gown was stunning and I felt like a princess the whole evening! :)

Compliments galore!

I rented this dress for a gala that I was receiving an award at. I was unsure if I was going to like this dress but read great reviews that it was better in person so I went for it. I'm glad I did! Not only does the dress fit true to size, but it's comfortable for a strapless, the color is much prettier in person, the pattern made everyone want to touch the dress and it had pockets! I had people stopping me in the streets of NYC to compliment me on the dress. It also looked amazing when I walked and translated beautifully on stage. The fabric is a heavier material but not one where I felt too hot. Just felt a tad heavy to wear. All in all this is a fabulous dress and I say rent it!

Gorgeous dress!

This is a stunning dress. The material is thick and voluminous on bottom. It was a little bit for me in the chest but fit perfectly everywhere else. I am 5'6" and wore a 0R; with a 4 in our of heels this would be perfect. Mine were 3 in so the dress dragged a little. But it has pockets!

Stand-out dress but heavy

This is a really pretty fun dress for a formal event. It fit true to size. It was not my first choice but was sent to me last minute when my other dress was damaged. Downsides: If you have small boobs like me you'll be pulling it up all night and the regular train dragged on the ground even though I'm 5'8" and wore four once heels. Overall though I loved it.

Amazing dress

Best dress ever! I got so many compliments and it was such a hit! It was a bit more formal for the event but because it was a light color, it worked really well. It was a bit long in the back but since it went up high in the front, it didn't get in the way of walking. It fit well, but if I had purchased it, I would have gotten it taken in a little at the top so it would be more snug. Had to wear a belt to make sure it didn't slide. Otherwise it's PERFECT.

Loved wearing this dress!

As other reviewers have stated, this dress is beautifully made and was so fun to wear! Got lots of compliments on something I would only have ended up wearing once even if I owned it. It's a perfect dress for a summer black-tie event.

Jackie O Inspired

I loved this dress for a formal dinner party I attended, recently. I felt like Jackie O :). You also don't need a bra in this and good for bustier women.

SO many compliments bonus pockets!

I'm 5'3" and it dragged a bit as you can see from the picture, but it was manageable. The fabric was lovely but it was a bit dingy, I can tell There has been a long list of renters for this one but it didn't take away from the dress. I had over five people stop and compliment me on the dress which really surprised me. There was a mix of casual dressy and formal and I didn't feel over dressed. Very easy to style and get accessories for

Lots of compliments

I wore this dress to the Navy's "Rhino Ball". I received lots of compliments. The only thing I would change about this dress is the neckline. It cut me off a little weird. The pleating can also make you look a little wider than you really are. The dress was very comfortable. But the fabric is thick! So keep that in mind if you're renting this for an outdoor event in the heat. Overall this dress is beautiful and you'll receive a ton of compliments!

Beautiful dress for very tall thin person

My daughter wore this dress as a jr bridesmaid. It looked gorgeous. She felt the high waist & heavy fabric made her look "fat" but she is 15 & her generation goes for very short & fitted. We cinched her into the 2 b/c she was worried it would come down. I did see her pulling at it during the reception. Also the boning was poking out of the 4.

Gorgeous dress

I rented this for a black tie optional wedding. It was my first experience with RTR and I was delighted. The dress itself is amazing. I definitely felt like a princess and got so many compliments. Highly recommend this to anyone looking for something they can move in, look super elegant and confident in.

Pockets!

I ordered this dress for a formal wedding that my husband and I attended. I ended up wearing the 10R. The fit with snug around my bust, which is what I wanted so I wasn't tugging the dress up all night. The material is heavy and does add volume around the hips and butt. It also has a weird hue in some lighting which made it look dingy and dirty. My biggest issue was he zipper! I struggled for about 30 minutes attempting to get the zipper undone when it was time to remove the dress. Both sizes had this issue. Bad design flaw. Loved loved the pockets! So convenient for my phone and lipstick. The hemline was perfect but I did notice that at times my heel tip caught the hem of the dress. Overall this dress wasn't a wow for me. It fit it's purpose but I wouldn't rent it again or recommend it.

Beautiful & Unique

Rented this to change into after my wedding reception. It is pretty thick which was perfect for a cool night. I usually wear a 4 or 6 and the 4 fit perfect!!! It hit me mid shin and I paired it with burgundy heels. Got a lot of compliments and felt great in it!

Flattering and comfortable!

I wore this to a 60's themed party but would definitely wear it for another formal event. It was pinker than I envisioned, but the texture and fit were amazing. I typically wear a size 6 but needed to size up for the bust. I got a ton of compliments and loved wearing it! First RTR experience was great.

Felt so beautiful in this dress!

I felt awesome in this dress. It was 3 weeks after delivering our baby and the dress was very forgiving. Tight up to the belly button and flaring from there. The thick fabric hided all my after pregnancy flaws. Also no bra was needed. Normally I am an 8 but so soon after delivery I was a 10. The dress fitted true to size. Got a lot of compliments

Greatest number of compliments, ever!

This dress is simple but glamorous! I had 10-15 strangers come up to me at the wedding saying how much they loved this dress. It it fitted at the top, goes out nicely at the waist, and has the slightest train in back. Was great with 3 inch heels.

Comfortable and statement dress

Couldn't recommend this more! The dress fit perfectly and was true to size. Below the waist, there's tons of room, so order to fit your chest and waist. I received so many compliments on this dress! It definitely makes you stand out. I absolutely loved the pockets! Love the high low bottom. The dress is thick but not hot or heavy. Order for your formal event! Just get someone to help with the zipper. I'm 5'8" and wore 3.5" heels with the regular length, which was perfect.

I am so grateful that I am able to get two sizes.

I am very short, 5' 1". So, there would have been a very long train if I didn't wear stilettos. Overall the dress was amazing and I received a ton of complements.
