Size up! Maybe two!

This runs SUPER small -- I'm normally a small in this designer but the zipper wouldn't even go up half way. No adjustable straps so not recommended for busty women. There's a lining that runs about mid thigh. The color was gorgeous - too bad it doesn't work for me.

Pretty in pink!

This dress is lovely! The material has a fine gold trim that adds a little shimmer. Really shows off a tan. Several compliments, a great spring dress.

Pretty color, the cut just didn't work for my figure

This dress was really pretty. Had gold in it, unlike the photos. The problem I had was the different seams throughout the bottom. The one layer was right across my behind and it just didn't lay right. I think this dress would work for someone who was taller as the layers would've been in the proper spots.

Easter brunch

So pretty! I love this designer I've never had a bad experience. I only got one size, small, and it fit great although slightly tight in the chest - they are not adjustable straps. I do want to say I rented a very very very similar dress from Dress the Population like I think the same as this but was floor length and periwinkle blue - and the chest was very stretched out which I was surprised this one was so tight and intact but I think I'm one of the first renters. I was able to wear a strapless bra but you could see just the top of it in some photos so next time I may go braless. I'm a 34c and if you're much bigger than that it may be a bit uncomfortable but smaller chests I think would work. The material is light weight and very feminine with the lace and the gold threading. Tight at waist and chest and flows through hips. Nude lining underneath that is short just above mid thigh. I'd rent this again!

Didn't wear, too tight!

I LOVED this dress. However I chose not to wear it to an upcoming bridal shower for two reasons. One, seemed a bit too fancy. Really pretty lace with gold accents. And two, too tight! The slip underneath was really tight over my hips and butt (although they are larger so I can understand). However smalls usually fit my waist and it was very snug. Standing was fine (still very tight) but sitting would have been uncomfortable and bulging. Super pretty though, medium for me!

I did not end up being able to wear this.

I had rented this dress before it had any reviews. On shipping, I checked RTR and some of the reviews mentioned that it was tight in the bust. I am a 36DD and this dress would not zip past my waist. It was VERY tight in the chest even with a XL. Very disappointing as the dress itself is gorgeous and lightweight. If you have a larger bust, be cautious. The zipper makes it extra tight and there is no give in the fabric. I gave 2 stars because of the overall dress quality was great.

Make sure to have a tan

I was hoping this would look cute for Easter but alas it was a disaster. The dress completely washed me out. Additionally it didn't fit in a flatering way despite it fitting. Couldn't wear this and ended up wearing another dress that I owned. So disappointed!!

Fits true to size, might run a bit smaller for those with larger bust size. It was perfect for my frame though!

Pretty in Pink

I rented this as my back up dress to try on for a wedding I'm in in July where I get to pick my own dress. The dress was pretty and I like the length and the gold detailing but I think I'm looking for something more for the wedding.

Wonderful dress for cocktail event, lots of compliments!

Rented this for a fundraising event. The dress is a wonderful pink and gold, great for the spring. Overall the fit was pretty good, the only issue was the bodice ran bigger than expected, so I had to add extra padding to get the fit I wanted. I have tried on Dress the Population before, so I knew their dresses tend to run very small, definitely order one size up unless you have a very small upper body! Other than those couple details, the dress was absolutely wonderful and was very fresh and new!

I have an athletic build so this fit tight around the shoulders so I advise going a size up if you have that build. Otherwise I got a lot of compliments.

This dress was perfect for the daytime wedding i attended.

Beautifil dress. The colors were a fabukous pink/peach color with hints of gold. The fabric was light airy and fell to my ankles because I am short. The torso was a bit tight but nothing to complain about and the straps were alittle loose. But no other complaints. Would def recommended

Pretty cut and design but inner sheath lining too tight on hips.

The fitted inner sheath was snug and I probably need to lose some weight in the hips and and belly for it to fit well. If sized up think the top would be too large since I have a small chest.

The dress is beautiful. However, if you're curvy, the slip underneath is sheath and does not give. Think Jennifee Lopez trying on the dress Jane Fonda bought her in the movie Monster-in-law.

It fit nicely but it has tiered ruffles that you can't really see in the photo.

Very pretty neckline. If you like ruffles you will like it, but they make it less dressy than in the picture.

pretty!

definitely think about sizing up if you are larger in the chest area/have broader shoulders! I am pretty flat chested but with wide shoulders and the medium fit, it was just a bit tight. overall a very pretty dress and I recommend it!

Wonderful, comfortable, season-appropriate dress

This dress has been one of my favorites thus far from RTR. The color was beautiful - a peachy blush - and the gold trim was a a fan favorite. I am a S, but the sheath lining underneath didn't have a lot of give and the zipper was a little sticky, so I ended up going with the M just to be a little more comfortable throughout the dancing portion of the evening. The M fit basically exactly the same, just a little looser around the bust. No issues with straps, length or anything else - just a super simple yet elegant piece. I wore it with RTR earrings and got lots of compliments all night long on both. It was the perfect psuedo-bridesmaid dress for a best friend's wedding - highly recommend!

Not suited for busty/hourglass or short girls

First picture is to show you the positives which is even though the dress wasn't that well suited for me, it didn't look that bad. And the lace was seriously pretty with the gold trim. But this dress was not well suited for me. I imagine that a taller girl with a smaller bust would look very lovely in this dress. The second picture attached was the medium. My issue is the best fit all wrong. It weirdly gapped at the top and was too tight against my bust. It just wasn't flattering. The picture actually looks better than the reality. It was kind of uncomfortable. Honestly this is a general issue I have with a lot of dresses and shirts, which is the waist fits fine but the bust is too tight. If this is a problem you also have, I would avoid this dress. The second issue is it's a lot longer than I expected. On the model it's below the knee/mid calve length. I would not have been surprised if it hit me a little lower than the model, but it hit me at the ankle so it looked like I was wearing a maxi dress that was a bit short. I consider myself average height, so if you are short to average height be aware of that. The third picture is me in the large which was just much to large. A number of people said it ran small so I ordered it just in case. It was really wide and gapped even more and the waist was noticeably too large. A pity because it is pretty, but I am wearing my back up style instead. Long story short, to wear this dress you need to be taller and less busty than I am.

Perfect springtime wedding dress.

I loved this dress. Definitely worth renting. I found it to be hard for someone like me who has a smaller chest and wider hips/bigger butt. The medium was way too big in my chest area, but fit better in the hips. While the small fit my chest perfectly and was a bit tighter on my hips and butt. I ended up going with the small because the dress doesn't really work well with a bra. Overall, it was comfy and I'd probably rent again.

Very lovely dress!

No bra needed!!! I was so excited for that because there's really not room for one. The material is double and thick enough that you won't see anything, and at least for my body shape, was sturdy enough I had no worry about it slipping and being revealing. If only it had pockets.... I fit into both sizes, but the zipper was hard to get up on the smaller one, so I went with the next size. I rented this for my graduation, especially since our colors were salmon pink! It's long and thick enough but it was a bit rainy so I didn't get hot in it or anything.

Weird fit

Wanted to rent this as a cute dress to wear with wedges while on the coast. Unfortunately, I was not in love with the fit or color and did not wear. While it zipped up just fine the shape was not my favorite. It hit me a little too low on the waist and was loose in the chest and straps (even though I am a DD). There is about 5 inches of strap at the top that I could have safety pinned if I really wanted to make it work.

Wore this for my son's First Communion and it was fabulous!

Dress fits true to size with very little give but it looks so pretty on that it won't matter. Tried to wear a sticky bra first but was able to see a bit of it so opted for pasties and some tape. The dress appears to be more of a baby pink online but is actually more of a dusty rose with gold throughout. I paired the dress with nude strappy heels and a pair of rose gold Kendra Scott Alex earrings and it was perfect.

My friends told me I looked like a princess!

This dress is beautiful and I wish I owned it! It was actually my second style but I ended up loving it more than the first. I wore it without a bra and was very comfortable all night. The dress was a little snug over my distance runner thighs but is definitely true to size! Enjoy ladies!

Pretty dress

The color is nice and more pink in person. I got a L which fit great everywhere but my boobs. Luckily, I ordered the XL too but then the boobs were too big. Just make sure you have good undergarments and you will be fine.

Plunging neckline!

It's not just low cut, it's plunging and if you need a bra, you need the fancy pants kind that goes down to your diaphragm. So while it's not work appropriate, it's perfect for a summer wedding or party. I felt like a hot tamale and sugar sweet all at the same time. I marked it true to size because it did fit me without issue, but it was tighter than most dresses and there's not as much room in the hips as you'd think. If you're busty or hippy, size up!

Good wedding guest dress!

I got this dress in L and XL based on the reviews saying it ran small/tight in the bust. I am a 36C and the XL was waaayyyy too loose in the bust. The L fit pretty well but still not as snugly in the chest as I thought it might. It was a bit snug through the torso, but didn't squeeze too much when I wore shapewear under it. (For reference, I am about 5'4, 175 lbs.) I did not wear a bra with this dress. The dress was definitely a midi length on me, hitting about halfway down my shins. I got compliments on the dress and enjoyed wearing it!

Horrible fit in the chest.

The chest area is awkward and little room for adjustment.
