Perfect fall wedding dress

I can't believe no one has reviewed this dress yet! It's a perfect dress for a fall wedding. The color is beautiful and the gold threading gives it a little bit of sparkle without being over the top. I felt like it ran true to size, but the fabric does have a bit of stretch, so it's very comfortable and easy to wear. I was able to wear a regular bra with it and the length makes it really easy to walk, dance, move, etc in without worrying about any wardrobe malfunctions. It would be perfect for holiday party season too and I would definitely rent it again!

Beautiful & elegant

Pros: perfect fit, paired great with gold heels, SO comfortable, and beyond flattering. Cons: the dress was too big in my boob area and I am a 34D. It went so low and hung open that you could see my bra in the front. I had to get two safety pins and close it up and then it was fine!

Lace detailed sundress

Wore this for a bike ride outing but could definitely be dressed up with heels and jewelry. It was very low cut on me and tight on the top so showed a lot of cleavage. I just wore a scarf and it was fine

The most perfect dress for a fall wedding!

Fit was perfect! Can be low cut for women with a larger bust. I am a 34 B and only a little cleavage showed. I received tons of compliments and I would definitely rent again for another fall or winter wedding!

Perfect and flattering fit for curves

I rented this dress for a friend's wedding and loved it! The color and gold sparkle was perfect for the winter wedding, it gives off a holiday vibe. The fit was great for me - I have wide hips and a thin waist and the cut hugged me in all the right places. I will say I don't have much in the breast department so I could see this being a bit too low cut for bigger breasted gals. For me, the low cut was flattering for my smaller breasts and I was still able to wear a bra with it. The flowy skirt was so fun to dance in. I'd honestly rent this again!

Long

The XL was much longer than I expected, so keep that in mind when you're renting.

Though fit for short people

This didn't hit right on my body (I'm short and the hem was off) it was also a bit too small.

Not in love but nice

I didn't LOVE this dress but it worked. Definitely had issues with my bra peeking out throughout the night. Also because of the tiered panels, it wasn't flattering from all angles (some of my pics didn't come out great). But it was comfy and felt fancy. Definitely a unique color scheme,

Tiny gold threads made it formal enough

This dress is not made of stretchy fabric and the bodice was snug, but very comfortable and supportive. I didn't need to wear a bra, and I have 57 year old body, which rarely looks ok bra-less. The straps were wide and well placed so that my arms looked nice as well. I was very happy the dress had a bit of sparkling threads, because most of the other guests were wearing full length ball gowns, much to my surprise, and I didn't feel too under dressed.

Stunning Dress

This dress was gorgeous for engagement photos. The gold detailing is very subtle and catches the light beautifully.

Perfect guest wedding dress

I was scared to order this dress based on reviews with it being low cut. I am 5'7, 140 with 30g bra and a short torso, normally a small on top and M-L on bottom. The small fit perfectly on my top (and I did not need to wear a bra!!!) while leaving plenty of room on my larger bottom half. I would definitely order this again

Shimmer & Lace

Sliiiiiiim bodice--but really flattering! The photos do not do justice to the gold thread throughout the lace. Very glamorous!

It was just ok. A little bit frumpy. Fit different than other Dress the Population dresses.

I rented a different Dress the Population dress for a wedding over the summer in a size XS. It fit like a glove. What's odd is the cut of this dress is exactly the same, it's just a little bit longer, and the top was very big on me. Nope, I didn't lose or gain weight. I'm consistently a size 0-2 depending on the brand. I got this because my original pick fit horrible, so this was the backup we found in the store. Very limited options in RTR showroom and long process. Not a great RTR experience this time.

Looked great, fits a little small.

Looked great, photographed well. Fit a little snug in a weird way. Maybe my torso is too short for the dress, I felt like it bunched up and didn't fit correctly on my body in the torso/ chest area. I am not busty by nature, so I Was happy to not wear a bra. Received LOTS of compliments. I was really happy it worked out, I thought I was going to need to find something else at the last minute.

Looks fancy, but can be great for date night.

Paired with Burgundy boots, which brought out the browns and golds. I usually wear all-black everything and this was a GREAT way to mix it up. Very low dip in front, but even with big boobs, I did not have to wear a bra. Size fit okay, but I'd order a M next time. I felt SO great all night. Incredible fit and if you are in dimly lit room, the dress glistens.

Great for wedding

Fit was true to size but tight for me at 10 weeks pregnant. This was also a "boobier" dress than pictured or I had planned on. Not too much, but more than I would have liked.

Great for fall gala.

Normally a 4/6 dress and the small fit like a glove on this small-chested gal.

Perfect for a fancier barn wedding

I got so many compliments on this dress and I think the best part was that I didn't have to wear a bra. It's hard to see the gold thread in photos but it pops better in person. I wouldn't say the dress runs small but it was more fitted around the butt/abdomen area.

Perfect fall or winter dress!

I loved this dress! I haven't worn this type of fit or style before! I am petite, 5'1 and 120 lbs. I usually wear between a 0-2, I have a very small chest as well. I wore an XS, and it fit perfectly up top for me, anyone that is an XS but has a fuller chest may not fit as well into this, through the rib cage it was just the perfect amount of tightness. I also loved the T length, hitting me a little above the ankle. Unfortunately the detail on this dress is really only admired in person, as it is more of a deep burgundy color with amazing gold detail stitching. Still looked great in pictures though!
