Super long but sparkly and fun!

A subtle gold detail you can't see in the photos but truly beautiful! Unfortunately I had to pin up the hem by 2-3 inches - I'm 5'3" and even in my tallest heels it was dragging, and I was tripping all night. Other than that, it's a great pick!

Gorgeous dress, runs small

I got so many compliments on this dress. It's truly gorgeous. I usually wear a size 4/small but in this had to wear a medium because it runs really snug around the torso. Medium fit perfectly on the waist but was slightly big in the chest for me and was a bit long (wore heels so it was okay). Overall i did love it

There's some gold in the lace that doesn't photograph well

Great dress for tall girls with curves

Fits like a glove with no special bra just a regular strapless. I ordered the XXL and it fit perfect

Incredibly pretty and unique

Obsessed w this dress.. rented it in the light blue before but the pink was Wow! It’s got gold in it up close which makes it feel so unique without being over the top! Could totally work for any dress code at a wedding. Fit TTS. I’m 5’5” and wore 3in heels and it was the perfect length.

Pretty pink color and lace

Pretty dress, and it is nicer than the pictures. There is a bit of gold trimming on the lace. It's subtle. Cons, it was a tiny bit tight, but I had the bigger size but chose not to wear it. Not my usual style, it's laid back and not sophisticated. But I chose it to be contrary to my normal selections. Think sweet, rustic, not Gala or mod or chic!

I got a ton of compliments on the dress, the gold accents in the lace are really elegant and make it very unique.

So many compliments - a really stunning choice! LOVE Dress the Population styles.

Has details you can't quite see in the pictures that makes it especially lovely, including gold thread detailing and short sheer under-layer so you can see the bottom of your legs through the lace. I'm really short (5'2) and while it fit me very well in the torso (Like all the Dress the Population styles- HIGHLY recommend this brand but had only work their mini and midi dresses before), this was wayyy too long on me overall - even with heels, I had to take to the tailor to get a temporary hand-sewn hem I could release before I returned it. I initially tried this style on at the RTR store and the stylist assured me I could do so for $5, but the tailor insisted it was $45 because she had to hand sew rather than do it on the machine. So this was much more expensive than I anticipated! Short girls, factor that in :)

Pretty, pretty, pretty

I ordered this dress as a backup, so I didn't get the chance to wear it unfortunately, as it was truly gorgeous! The pink has more gold shiny detailing than I had originally thought it would, but this was a definite plus for me. It fit really well and was quite comfortable too.

Beautiful and comfortable

The dress is true to size and has a pretty gold inlay that shows much better in person than in photographs. The top is well lined so a bra was not necessary but the slip wouldn't lay right and was a bit of battle all night

Beautiful dress, runs a bit tight

I rented this to wear to a beach wedding but the size didn't work for me. I am usually a 4 or 6 in dresses so I ordered a SL, this was very tight on though! This dress is really gorgeous in person; there is a gold shimmer throughout that does not catch on photos. This dress has very little stretch and give to it as a nature of the lace. I would recommend ordering a larger size to fit comfortably. Unfortunately the larger size was not available for me, but I ended up wearing a different RTR dress that worked out great.

This dress fit so small. I am usually an XL in everything and this dress ran so small in the bust area.

Loved this dress and would definitely rent again. Low cut front so make sure you have a low cut strapless bra, or something else. Flows while you walk and is comfortable!

More sparkle then I expected

Loved this dress and received so many compliments. I wish I would've had a better picture taken in it. Each flower on the lace is outlined with gold threading so expect some shimmer. It was somewhat difficult to zip cause of the lace on my own but once I had help it was fine. Loved this and would def rent or purchase it!

Compliments all night! My boobs looked great!

Was a little large in the bust but worked out. More beautiful in person than the pics! I felt great all night. It was flattering and classy.

Perfection!

This dress was a perfect mix of classy with a bit of edgy (given the pop of color and cut of the neck line). I am 5'6, 145 pounds, 34B cup, with a very athletic/muscular build. The small fit perfect. It was definitely snug on top, but helped create a nice shape (including cinching the waist and giving some cleavage; although I did pop in a NuBra to give me more shape). The medium fit, but hung loose on top and did nothing for my waste. The zipper on the small did have a sticking point that I needed help with. Otherwise, it was pure perfection. Given the event, I looking for something not as sexy (which I generally like), but yet still made me feel great. This dress definitely fit the bill.

N/a

Unfortunately I didn't wear the dress.. The dress was too long although I read a review by Someone who was the same height as me (5 foot five,)the dress was too long to even wear. Also the gold metallic in the material was not evident in the photo that is shown on your website. The neckline is also a bit revealing than expected.

I rented this dress dress for a black tie optional wedding.

Sadly, I didn't wear it. I have a slightly shorter torso, so the shoulders were quite big on me and the length was way too long even with tall heels. I loved the color and the style.

First rental!

The medium was a little snug around the rib cage but overall fit better than the large. Lots of compliments throughout the night for this dress!

Comfortable and beautiful

I ordered this in a Medium (my regular size) and a large (backup). I ended up wearing the large only for the bust. The medium fit just fine but it did nothing for my chest so I sized up. The dress was very comfortable to wear and very flattering. This was my first RTR and having had such a great experience, I'm hooked for life!

SO many compliments! Wore the small (5'4" ~135 A cup tots lol) was a teeeeny bit loose in the chest area bc I'm super flat but will made me look like a hand a little bit of cleavage :) So comfortabe! Thought it would be hot but it wasn't at all actually breathable and we had an outdoor 90 degree wedding and didn't show sweat. I wore 3 in heels and it fell perfect. This was a backup and SO happy I ended up with it!! (Sent my 1st choice to the wrong address, dummie)

Beautiful dress w built-in AC

I rented this for a summer wedding and loved it! The open lace was good for some air circulation while still feeling covered. The lace does have gold thread like other reviewers have mentioned. I wish I owned the dress!

Really loved this dress. I typically wear a 6 or 8 in dresses so I ordered the small, but it was too small. Wish I could have gotten the medium

Obsessed! Endless compliments & so comfortable.

I ordered this dress as a back up, thinking the color and style was straying from my norm. I also noticed that I could not find many reviews for it with a fit for girls with smaller chest, like myself, (34B). I had a tough time visualizing how it might work out for me. I do think if you are smaller in chest size - this dress is likely a win! Io did wear a strapless no problem. I am SO glad I took that shot in the dark ordering this. This dress fit true to size, was perfect for a formal, summer city wedding, but could easily be worn at a rustic/outdoor occasion too! The color is beautiful & it has subtle hints of gold outlines that are best seen in person. Would rent over and over.

Fit, but the cut wasn't flattering

The dress fit, and I love the fabric, but it made my boobs look weird. And the shoulder straps cut into my shoulders a little. Didn't end up wearing it out.

Lacy, long, and different

I rented this dress because I was trying to push myself outside of my comfort zone. I am not a fan of the way it highlighted my stomach. The under layer was very tight and the dress was too long for me. The small was too tight, but the length was better. I did not wear this dress. This would be ideal for someone taller and slender. If you have curves, the under layer will be an issue.

Gorgeous, long and flowy. Very flattering. So many compliments.

Great for tall, small chested gals. Fit like a glove.
