This dress has a great fit! It was very comfortable and flattering, with stretchy fabric. I wore a strapless bra with this. It would be great for a formal summer wedding with heels or dressed down as a maxi with cute sandals!

Gorgeous & flattering

Size worn: LR
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
I LOVED this dress! I should start by saying I am 5'9, athletic (swimmer build) and 6 months pregnant when I rented this dress. It made me feel and look so beautiful. The Large size fit my 38D chest perfectly (no need for a bra, it actually did the bra work for me in a nice flattering way) and the length hit the tops of my feet even with the baby bump (shoes showed). It falls to the shape of your body, and the color and fabric make it elegant and extremely comfortable. It made me go from feeling like a big pregnant lady, to a sleek and elegant woman out on a date with her husband! He loved it, couldn't stop telling me "you don't even look pregnant!" The deep blues are rich and beautiful. I wanted to keep it, fantastic dress!

Beautiful color in person.

This dress was awesome. I ordered it as a backup look and didn't really think it looked cute in the RTR picture. I ended up wearing this dress instead! The color is a bit more vibrant in person and the fit is heaven! It hides any imperfections you may have around the middle without looking like it. I have a C cup and I felt like the neck line was that perfect blend of sexy but still classy. I could have gone with a Medium, but the large was a great length for heels. This dress is super versatile as well. Dress it up or down!

I am pretty short. So, the dress was a little long, but otherwise beautiful!

Fits a little large. Could have worn a small, I usually wear a size 6. I got tons of complements. The dress was amazing. Very happy with my choice.

this dress is as beautiful as it is insanely comfortable!

Size worn: MR
Overall fit: True to Size

the fabric is more of a knit so made it less formal than i was expecting but also made it so comfortable, it felt like a nightgown while still looking glamorous. i would not suggest the R size if you are any taller than 5'5" and want to wear heels, i'm 5'8" and had to wear flats.

Fabulous color!

The fit was perfect, although I would've like it to be a bit longer. I'm 5'10" and this dress skimmed the top of my feet in perfectly flat sandals. But it still worked - wore it to a sunset wine + dinner event hosted by hubby's clients. Didn't need a bra - the cut of this dress covers and supports perfectly! Would definitely consider renting again!

Perfect dress for my 4-week post-baby body at a small Friday night wedding. The color is great and I always appreciate the little tabs in the straps to keep bra straps in place. The dress is incredibly comfortable!

Easy casual beach dress

Size worn: SR
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Vacation
Nice dress for beach resort dinners. Fabric is perfect for the beach since the sand just rolls off. Runs very short though. The shoulder straps were super short and not adjustable. The dress is short too.

didnt end up wearing this one.

Size worn: MR
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
rented this dress b/c it is "bump friendly" and I am 19 weeks pregnant. I am 5'7 and normally a size 4. II didnt end up wearing this dress because the top was too small. I am a 34C. the cup was a bit small and the straps are not adjustable, so the top just didnt work. The REGULAR length dress was also a bit short with the bump and couldn't be adjusted due to straps.

So comfortable and pretty

This was my backup dress for a Las Vegas wedding. I ended up wearing the original dress I picked out, but liked this dress so much I wore it around the hotel and out for food for the rest of the weekend. This dress was the perfect length to wear with flat sandals. Keep in mind that I am short (5'2"), so taller ladies may want to rent a long, or find another pretty option. The little straps to hold in your bra straps were great if you don't want to worry about a strapless. The fabric is heavy in a luxurious sort of way, and drapes wonderfully.

One of my favorite rentals!

Size worn: XSR
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Date
I rented this for a birthday dinner in West Palm Beach. I was a little worried since I only rented one size but the fit was perfect! I'd say it runs short since I'm 5'3" and I was able to wear it with flats w/ no problem. The color is gorgeous and the straps are substantial enough that you can wear a regular bra with it. This dress can really be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. I was very tempted to purchase this!!

Very forgiving fit. I normally where a small or medium but the XS fit the best. This dress does get longer when you size up, so be mindful if you are short like me. Overall, perfect dress when out at night on vacation.

5 months pregnant and it looked great!

I was 5 months pregnant with my first and had a small bump. This dress fit perfectly, showing off the bump in perfect fashion. If you are renting this dress and have a sizable chest, I wouldn't be shy- those are definitely shown off too! I loved it. Made me feel pretty and pregnant- not fat!

It was so much fun to wear this dress!

Size worn: SR
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress fit true to size and I can't imagine it looking bad on anyone! The fabric had a firm stretchiness to it that was flattering, not clingy. I wore it to a daytime wedding in Key West and it was really perfect for the setting. The pattern on the dress is actually much prettier in person and it felt like a quality garment. I couldn't have been more happy with this rental.
