Just a beautiful dress. I was afraid it would wash me out, but it is even more beautiful in pictures.
I love this dress! I loved it the moment I saw it for sale and I knew I had to rent it when it became available. I thought it would be perfect for my sister's garden wedding, but it was unavailable. Instead I rented another Elizabeth and James dress of similar design. I'm glad I was able to try on the style before I rented this exact dress. I am short, about 120 lbs, and usually wear a size 4. I rented the first style in size 4 with a 2 for a back-up since it looks like a looser fit. I wore the size 2 for mys sister's wedding. The size 2 still fit loose in the shoulders, though. This time when I rented this dress I chose a size 2 with a 0 for a back-up. I was able to wear the size 0. It still was a little long...someone stepped on it :( It was worth it, though, it is beautiful and I received compliments all night long, including from the woman who stepped on it!

I had sooo many people come up to me the next day and say "you were that girl in the gorgeous dress...you were the hottest one at the wedding"....that sure does make a girl feel good doesn't it?
I rented this dress for my friend's wedding at the end of April. The fit was perfect and I felt pretty. The only issue I had was people stepping on the back of it (a bit of a train) I am 5'9" so consider that if you are shorter....but picking it up was no problem at all and was actually fun to dance with :) (sorry the lighting is bad in my pictures...camera phone)

This dress!
I saw this dress in Carrie Underwood's music video for "Good Girl" and I just had to have it! I was so happy to find it on here. I wore this out for my 27th birthday with friends and felt as fabulous as the country music sweetheart!

It was an easy way to score a fabulous designer dress for a special event at a fraction of the cost!
I loved this dress, it was light and flowy...the perfect companion for an expectant mother attending a hot summer wedding! It does run a little large, I probably would have gone with an 8 if I had time to exchange it, but since it was a flowy dress anyway the belt took care of that problem. I received a ton of compliments on it too, but be prepared to pick up the train when you are on the dance floor so no one steps on it. :)
FiAugust 1, 2012
does this dress have a tight-fitted slip underneath? i am also an expectant mom :-) ...will be 7 months when i planned to wear this to a wedding and i like the shape of the dress for those of us with a bump, but was wondering whether the slip underneath would fit around my growing belly...? thanks!!
RTRAugust 2, 2012
Hi Fi, there is not a fitted slip under this style and it should work great with a bump!

pretty but loose and VERY long
The belt is essentail bc otherwise this fits like a nightgown. I went a size down and it was still loose. It is pretty, but very long- I'm 5'6 and in 4inch wedges, the hem was still trailing on the ground and getting caught under my heels. But its very comfy- I could see it working even for pregnant women.

Everyone loved the long hem in the back and floral pattern, definitely a hit!
I wore this dress to a rehearsal dinner in Tahoe with flats and it was perfect amount of fun and formal. The fit is great as the belt really makes the dress flattering for any body type.

Amazing dress
This dress is the perfect ethereal, bohemian maxi. The colors are amazing and the cut of the dress just flows. I ordered it for my engagement photos (on the beach), it was the perfect contrast... It does run rather big, I ordered my normal size (2) and luckily a backup (0). The 2 was really big and even with the belt, I couldn't make it fit. The 0 was much better, but the fit of the dress isn't meant to be tight, so it was still very loose. The belt and a big bra helped make it look more tailored. Its a great dress for any occasion that is more relaxed and less formal.

AMAZING
I wore this dress to an afternoon wedding and it was absolutely the funnest dress I've ever worn. It was light and flowy and beautiful. I'm tall, 5'10, so ordered a 6L. It was perfect. Just the slightest bit of fabric swirled around on the floor behind me when I walked (in 4 inch heels). I would really recommend renting this dress!

I have been completely obsessed with this very girly dress since the first time I saw it on RTR! A recent vacation to New York City was made UNFORGETABLE by a visit to the showroom! I truly believe my Sunday afternoon wouldn't have been complete without this dress. We went to the Whitney and to the Boathouse in Central Park where we sipped on wine and made great memories! Thank you RTR!!!
This Elizabeth and James beauty fits true to size and and is very femine and girly! I wore a pair of 3 inch wedges and the bottom of the dress just brushed the ground.

.
Fit a little large so I went a size down. It was very comfortable, flowy, and elegant. Only problem was the back is so long I had to make sure I didn't step on it. Would recommend wearing with high heels or high wedges, not flats.

So much fun to dance in but is a lot of material!!
The dress is gorgeous, but a lot of fabric! Made me feel much wider and larger then I am. The belt did very little to accentuate my waist. I didn't feel as though this was a flattering dress at all.

Beautiful print, baggy fit.
Much too large, drapes around. Not for a formal affair, more for a wedding or garden party. Beautiful print, go down one or two sizes. If you are a zero or two I do not recommend this dress as a top choice.

I wore this to my 22nd birthday brunch! Its airy and romantic, and brings all eyes to you!
I am usually a size 4, the dress fit true to size. It has a longer train than you can see in the image provided. I had to lift it up in the back to walk without dragging it before I put my heels on (I am 5 ft 8 in, 145 lbs). A really beautiful dress.

It was a total miss which was disappointing
I'd gotten the dress for a garden party on a hot weekend. I'm 5'8-1/2" and weigh 134lbs with an athletic build. I could have worked with it's loose fit, but the length was so long that I only could wear very high heels that would have sunk in the grass.

Engagement Photo; Sensational
I chose this as one of the dresses for my engagement photo, and let's just say the photographer and I were SO in love with it, I didn't even do an outfit change. If you carry most of your weight on the bottom half of your body, you can and should definitely go down a size. I'm 150 pounds and wore a size 2 - still, the straps were too long and I had to use double-sided tape to keep them in place. I highly recommend buying the double-sided tape, too. This way, you can wear the sleeves slightly off your shoulder - it's a beautiful neckline.

Your picture is awesome! We are the same exact size and I'm wondering if I should get this for my picnic wedding this August - please email me more pics of your dress if you are ok with that - destinylil@hotmail.com - Thank you! Look forward to chatting - there are so many options and I can't afford more than this for a dress so.....

great delivery, easy return.
really lovely on. long train in the back so if you are going to dance the night away this dress might not be the best choice. sweet and easy feeling, and works well with a tall wedge. does need you to wear a bra whose straps you don't mind showing, and the bra also needs to be low cut in the front. would totes rent this one again.

One of my favorite dresses I have ever worn!
Beautiful dress! I wore it to prom and it was easy to dance in and I got so many compliments. It was really long though, and I kept on stepping on it with my heels but that is my only compliant. I usually would wear around a 5 so i got a 4 and a 6 but my mom ended up calling and getting a 2 sent and it fit me perfectly. So i would get a smaller size.

Gorgeous pattern!
This is a VERY loose size 0. The dress is beautiful, but looks quite a bit like a nightgown. The 0R was not available when I rented, and the 0L was much too long on me (5'7"). With the right accessories and shoes, though, you could definitely make this work.

Fun to wear!
This dress definitely stands out, and I received a lot of compliments on it. Although it runs a bit large, the belt made a difference and the chest was well-fitted. I didn't mind the train, it looked beautiful when I walked, and I was just extra careful on the dancefloor and going up and down stairs to pick up the train and make sure no one stepped on it.

Felt Amazing!
Love this dress. I rented it when 5 months pregnant 32D bra, small bump. (Pre-prego: size 4, 32c bra). It is very comfortable, flowy, loose fitting and feminine. Drapes beautifully. I tied the ribbon belt over my bump... looked great. The size 6 was still very roomy in the bust and waist. Received tons of compliments! I would rent again in smaller size now ; )

Perfect for a baby bump!
Believe it or not, I wore this dress to my baby shower when I was 9 months pregnant. Everyone loved it because it wasn't a typical maternity dress. It actually was very flattering and comfortable. I typically don't do reviews, but was so excited about how it worked out for me I wanted to let others with a growing baby bump know they could pull it off as well. :)

PERFECT Dress. Comfortable and flattering.
I rented this for an evening June wedding near the beach. It was comfortable and flowing. A little tricky if there is lots of dancing since it was to the floor.. Would have done better with a 10, not 10L. But because the front is much shorter, I was glad I had the longer length in the front. I received lots of compliments and felt like I had on the perfect dress for the location and occasion. It doesn't come with a belt but I added a soft pink one and it really helped make it more flattering. It has belt loops so I am glad I found a great one. I wore it with tan platform pumps with sparkles and a soft pink clutch. Recommend a strapless bra since the straps are narrow. It has a flattering neckline which can handle either chunky or delicate necklace. I think you'll have fun with this dress if you choose it and feel comfortable and airy...I DID

Will Rent Again
There was one problem with this dress and it is that the long was too long for me......i'm 5' 5"and even with 4" heels i had to hold the back up to prevent it from dragging.....next time I will go with a regular if it is available. I love the flow......color and feel of the dress though.....and felt and looked like a goddess when the wind caught the dress.

I read that this dress runs large so I ordered 2 sizes smaller than what I usually wear (I usually wear a 4 so I ordered the 0 and 2). I wore the 0 and it fit fine. I am 5'6" and wore 4-inch heels, the dress swept the ground a little bit but I wasn't tripping over the tail. The dress flows beautifully, I would rent it again.

beautiful pattern and material but WAY too long
I loved everything about this dress except for the length. I am 5'6" and wore a size 2 and even in 3 inch heels it was dragging big time in the back. So much so that I couldn't wear it. Just looks messy and not quite finished.

I wore this to a graduation party which was held on a field - I was so comfortable in this dress and received compliment after compliment! I wore it with espadrilles but this dress could easily be worn with flats or sandals to a less formal event. Overall very happy with this dress!

Gorgeous, girly dress! Wore it to my baby shower at 7months pregnant, so it is definitely bump friendly. Loved it! It did arrive without the sash, so I had to wear one of my own belts- no biggie though

Lovely, feminine dress for a spring party!
This is one of the few RTR dresses touting itself as "bump-friendly" that fits the bill (it's wild to me that RTR doesn't have far, far more pregnancy-appropriate dresses!) I wore a size 4 at almost 7 months pregnant, and it worked great. As other reviewers noted, neither it nor the other size came with the grosgrain belt promised. Plan ahead and have your own belt ready. With the 4, the length wasn't a problem for me (I'm 5'7" and wore a 2-inch wedge), but I would have had to wear taller shoes with the 6.

Love The Dress
Loved this dress but received it at the hotel of my day affair and realized RTR forgot to send me the belt so i had no other belts with me so I didnt get to wear it. RTR was great and refunded me my money. I will definitely try to rent this dress again though!
