Fabulous and fun dress that's different from all the other wedding guest outfits
Overall the fit was pretty spot on! Shoulders, neck line, waist and hips fit me really well. I have a longer torso and shorter legs so I thought it would be too long on me (and it was). So a long midi looked almost like a short full length! Nothing some temporary hem tape can't fix! Once it was a few inches shorter, it was perfect! (And obviously I took the tape off before sending back so it's good as new!) I'll also mention that even with a large chest, I felt totally comfortable in the dress. I wore a low bra and pinned it down in the back. I'd call it tasteful cleavage and totally fun!

Classy look!
I loved this dress! I usually wear a size 8 or 10 in jeans so I ordered a 10, with a 12 as a backup. I wound up wearing the 12 - the 10 was just a little too snug for my taste. The straps were slightly loose but really not a problem. The skirt was very full and it was a little longer on me than I thought it would be but I absolutely loved it. It felt like a very romantic look. Wore it to a May wedding and got compliments on it all day - even one from a stranger on the street! Would absolutely rent this dress again.

pretty dress
I received this dress as a back up since the back up size to my original dress was unavailable. i didn't end up wearing this dress to my occasion, but the material is very nice and it is very well made. the only reason i didn't wear it was because the way the dress is pleated in the back, gives the illusion that your butt is extremely big, which i wasn't a fan of of. i think this dress is best suited for small girls size 0-4.

The customer service provided by RTR was by far the best I've ever encountered with a retailer.
This dress fit perfectly! As soon as I tried it on I was in love. I received so many comments from fellow wedding attendants. The bride herself even took a minute to tell me how much she loved my dress! Aside from my own wedding dress, this was my favorite dress I've ever worn - by far!

It fit almost perfectly, just slightly snug around the rib cage. The color is very vibrant and the fabric is very elegant. And don't get me started on the pockets :) I would definitely rent this dress again!

Gave me a nice figure when I don't have much of a waist. A bit tight through the ribs but not too bad. Got lots of compliments.

Perfect for a fall wedding!
Definitely recommend this dress for taller ladies. I was very hesitant to wear this dress but after a day of trying it on a couple times I liked it more and more every time. The cut of the dress is made for a retro flare at the upper waist and isn't made for anyone trying to show off their lower curves. Posing in pictures in a faltering way was a little difficult due to the pleats puffing out. The fabric is thick (but not too heavy) and the pattern is lovey with gorgeous colors so I decided to go with it as my first choose and loved it! I'm 6'0, athletic and I could have worn a size 8 if they had it in stock, the 10 fit my natural waist pretty well (36B top), and I was able to wear a bra with straps without showing in the front and back. For finding your size, I would base it off of your bra/natural waist size since that is the only fitted part of this dress (pleats allow for a lot of excess room for your lower half).

This dress made me feel like Grace Kelly! The cut is perfect --- though it does get tight around the ribcage. The dress is tailored beautifully and the fabric is thick, soft, and stunningly crafted. I got compliments all night and never wanted to return it. I cannot recommend this dress enough. It is classic and sexy! Rent it!!

This dress is gorgeous!
I was hesitant to rent because of the deep V and my bust size. I was able to wear my own bra using a product that hooks to your bra and pulls it down so it can't be seen. Worked like a charm! I received tons of compliments on this dress. It was comfortable and I felt amazing.

RTR customer service is absolutely wonderful.
Unfortunately I wasn't able to wear this dress. I have a very large chest, 34DD but the rest of me is small so I always have issues finding clothes that fit properly. The chest part of this dress was just too small for me. I would say if you had a cup size of C and below you would be fine.

Perfect dress for a Fall wedding! Fit is very flattering and I loved the pattern.
Dress fit true to size, but beware if you are busty, this dress shows a lot of cleavage. I loved the length and the overall fit, otherwise. Prefect dress for a wedding or formal event.

STYLIST REVIEW
This dress is AH-MAZ-ZIIIING. The fabric is rich with a lush floral pattern. The colors are stunning and vibrant. I am 5'6", and the hem of the dress what about mid calf on me. Due to the length of the look, if your shorter than this, you'll need to wear tall heels to make up for the length. I paired this dress with a simple gold necklace and pale blu metallic pumps. This look is not standard bra friendly, and not recommended for girls larger than a full B cup. Over all, the look is to die for, and while super flattering, not great for everybody.

Best dressed at a Fashion Gala
The fit was great, it accented my waist, and showed off my chest, while still being ladylike. The only thing was that the shoulders were a little big on me, I have very small shoulders. But some fashion tape fixed that. The fabric was beautiful, I was in love with the detail on the flowers, and the pockets were huge! I love pockets! I was told I was the best dressed one there, by a group of women and by one of the designers. Everyone was super nice and complimentary of this dress. I totally recommend it!

killer dress for celebrating a killer couple!
I wore this dress to a fall wedding and it was a big hit - received compliments from multiple people. The pockets are a major plus & it has an awesome bell shape that poofs out when you're dancing / spinning. The bodice is pretty fitted, but would likely not work for someone with a larger chest. Would definitely recommend!

Great fabric, swingy skirt!
I'm usually an 8 but that size wasn't available so I wore the 10 which I'm glad I did. This dress fit pretty tightly around my chest but was a little loose everywhere else which ended up being fine. The pockets were great (I didn't even need a bag!). I wasn't able to wear a bra with it because it dips so low in the back but there was enough coverage that I didn't need one.

This dress was perfect. It fit well and the top felt secure despite the deep-v. The fabric was gorgeous, and who doesn't love a pocket.

The fabric is substantial, weighty, and has a beautiful sheen. It feels luxurious.
I am on the short side, so high heels are a must--flats will not work if you are short--you will look overwhelmed by the dress. Heels will balance this out. A small bust is great for this cut but if your rib cage has widened with age (or so I like to tell myself), be sure to order a second size one size up. I couldn't zip past my rib cage in my usual size. The size 2 was a brand new, never-worn, still tagged dress, which felt amazing. The pockets have room for EVERYTHING. No need for a purse. I put this dress on an hour early just so that I could spend more time in it! Truly a delight.

Stand out from the crowd!
I LOVED this dress. It was comfortable, fashionable, and has pockets!!! I am a woman with hips and curves and I didn't find that the cut magnified or amplifies any of this. The dress fell nicely. But take care it is a lot of dress and fabric but without feeling bulky or heavy. I was able to move around on the dance floor just fine without even a fear of falling out of it due to the cut of the top. What really determines the size is your natural waist/rib cage. If you want, it's cut in a way that allows for a bra if you need more support. I opted for pasties and that worked out well in the size 6 as I'm only a 34B/C. And being that I am only 5'4", the dress was a bit longer and almost close to ankle length on me. I didn't feel like the dress was wearing me at all! The dress really was a hit for a fall wedding at a country club in the South. I don't typically wear dark colors to weddings, but the floral design gave it a fun, flirty feel. Also, I paired it with orange heels in the similar style of the model in the pictures. Because of the v-cut front, I kept my jewelry simple. I would rent this again in a heartbeat for ANY formal occasion!

Beautiful quality dress
I rented this dress for a dressy rehearsal dinner and wore with black louboutin pumps. The dress is beautiful and a very glamorous silhouette with nice substantial fabric with a beautiful winter floral print. I am a 4/6, the 4 fit perfectly with a little cleavage that balanced out the conservative skirt and tea length. Unfortunately, the 4 had a defective zipper and I had to rip it to get the dress off. I wore the 6, and it was just slightly big in the bust. RTR was great, they said they would pay to have the dress fixed but I didn't have time for that so they were able to credit me for the dress. This dress is very dressy, could be worn for cocktail or formal with the right shoes. I would consider renting this dress again for another semi formal wedding.

Perfect for a Fall Wedding!
Nice heavier material appropriate for a fall wedding; pockets were a nice touch to keep lipstick handy. It was longer than tea length on me due to my height, but I like that sort of "sweeping" look. You cannot wear a regular bra with this dress, also was a little big in the chest area for a 32B.

Perfect dress for an outdoor fall wedding!
Paired with some black tassel earrings and black pumps, this dress was a show stoppper. The chest is pretty tight so I recommend sizing up if you are larger in that area and maybe purchasing a bra for a low cut fit. I was able to go braless but I am a 32A. The length is perfect for a formal affair as well. I would totally rent again for a black tie event. It has an extra layer of material so it will remain the shape in the photos.

Loved this dress!
I typically wear a size 8 dress, so I ordered size 8 & 10 as my backup. The 8 was a bit tight around the rib cage, but fit me much better overall than the 10. I'm fairly small-chested, and got away without a bra and with no fashion tape. If I had gone with the 10 I definitely would have used the tape to make sure there were no mishaps with the top being a bit large for me. It's wonderful how forgiving the skirt of the dress is - no need to be cautious or worried about how I looked a great dinner! Pockets in the dress were also a huge plus for lip gloss & phone.

It was perfect for a rainy day fall wedding.
Fit true to size, and straps sit wide on the shoulders. I have larger breasts, and the top fit perfect, no bra needed. The skirt is full, and the fabric is fairly thick. I would die if worn in summer. This is definitely a fall dress. The length was a tad longer than expected, and I am tall 6'1" and hit below knee. I think for shorter women, this dress would swallow, and not do their bodies the justice they deserve!

Beautiful fit, especially at 18 weeks pregnant! This dress has a great retro feel and is super glamorous. I am 5'9" and this was a classic tea length on me - any shorter and it might be too long.

Feminine, quality dress with modern length - perfect for formal weddings!
Loved the sturdy, quality fabric, pockets and mid length. Enjoyed wearing this classy, feminine dress to a formal evening wedding. For those who are more well-endowed, beware that the dress runs small in the chest and rib cage.

Unique, fit great, looked amazing
I wore this to my friends wedding in September and it was exactly perfect for the occasion. I might recommend some fashion tape, you definitely can't wear a bra because of the deep V, but I didn't have to worry about it much because the dress fit great. The fabric feels really luxurious and drapes nicely, no worrying about wrinkles or anything like that. I got compliments all night long!

It was absolutely perfect for a black tie fall afternoon wedding! This dress runs very true to size. I am normally btw 6-8 (closer to 8). They didn't have a backup size so I just took a risk, and IT PAID OFF! I would most definitely rent again. There was actually another guest of the wedding that had rented the same dress and raved about it as well.

luxury and comfort vibrant dark floral design
This dress is a brilliant piece. The colors are rich and deep with a truly beautiful pattern that is unique and classic. Everyone has a different body type on me a petite hourglass I'm 5'2", 132#, 34C, and waist 27". I used double sided tape and felt very comfortable. On someone taller they could probably be able get away with no bra and not need the tape. The thick material flows nice and lays well. It went down to my ankles and was a deep V neckline. The reviews and pictures always help and all the reviews on this have been on point. It's a smart choice the dress is lovely, the cut is structured and the empire waist with pleats are great. I've rented other Cynthia Rowley dresses and always look for pockets in a dress because they make me happy. If this is something you are thinking about renting GO for IT you will love it too.

Gorgeous dress for a special event!
I ordered a 6 and an 8 and wound up wearing the latter since the dress is very tight at the rib cage, and I couldn't get the 6 zipped up and still breathe. I somewhat regretted my choice after leaving the house, though, since the 8 was a bit too loose in the boob area. I padded the cups out with bra inserts and used a bunch of fashion tape, but the straps were a bit loose on my shoulders. Still, this was a gorgeous dress—I got lots of compliments. The skirt is very voluminous—moreso than the product photo shows, made of thick satin-y material. The pockets are great. I also loved the low V-neckline, which I think would work well for anyone with a small chest (thank god the fashion tape worked!).

So many compliments! The floral pattern & tea length made me feel ladylike and feminine.
This dress is perfect for a fall/winter wedding. For this November outdoor Boston wedding I wanted to feel feminine without losing a bit of edginess. The very low front and back added a little spice to the dainty tea length. My only initial concern was how heavy/how much fabric there was to the dress. The best part!? The pockets! They proved to be a great bonus to hold my phone while dancing the night away and conceal how much fabric there is on around the hips - a real help for photo posing!.
