Felt pretty and unique
I didn't like how it would ride up pretty easily. I also had mixed feelings about the snake design, but overall it was a unique and fun outfit to wear.

Tummy forgiving yet daring.
After two kids my tum isn't exactly my best feature, but this dress definitely showed off my best assets. Definitely short, but I'm happy to show some leg! I wore this to a function with tan and gold sky high heels and felt marvelous. Dress is even better in person.

Did not get to wear this unfortunately
Tried this on at home, but the fancy dinner I was supposed to go to out of state with my boyfriend's family was cancelled. Looked cute for the second I had it on! Easily wrinkles. Cool pattern.

Fun pattern!
This dress was a lot of fun. I was able to put the 6 on with no problem but like the other reviews the dress was very tight around my legs but not my torso, kind of odd. If you have skinny legs and a minimal butt you'd be fine. So I sized up to the 8, still looked good. The dress was short but not too much for a night out. I probably wouldn't wear it to a wedding and definitely not to a professional function. But I don't think anyone over 5'3" could wear it without being overly short. Overall i really liked the dress! It was unique and fun to go out in.

Beautiful fabric, looks fancier/nicer in person than in photos. Very short though!
I wore flats with this and it was still very short so if you're taller than 5'4" definitely plan on flats! Fit was loose but in a cool and flattering way as the fabric is very structured. I wore this to a play but would also work well for an important daytime event.

Different....
Not sure this will be easy for everyone to wear. I ordered up a size after reading the reviews. More often than not, clothes off the rack can be too long for me, but this dress was a good length. There was something about the cut - kind of boxy? - and when you raised your arms the dress went up. I'm not sure my photo is helpful - my selfies aren't good, and my husband's photos are worse, so this is all I have!

weird fit, unflattering
did nothing for figure, too short and very boxy and big in the upper body. Perhaps someone over 5'8'' very straight and narrow could make it work

There is a giant snake on the dress! And it is a stiff material that looks strange from behind.
I was looking for a light-colored, spring-y dress that was a little different and had a fun pattern to wear to a bridal shower, and thought this would be perfect when I was looking at it online. The very first thing that I saw when I opened the box was the GIANT REALISTIC SNAKE in the pattern that is virtually impossible to notice in the small images online. As I hate snakes, this was a little terrifying and definitely not what I had expected. But some friends convinced me it would be cool, so I decided to give it a try anyway. I had the dress on for about 3 minutes and decided I couldn't make it work. It's a very stiff material (sort of reminds me of the fabric they make beer coozies out of, just thinner, and it's totally inflexible), so when I put the dress on, the front looked fine, very cute, but the back was like a tent. It was totally shapeless and made me look much heavier than I am. If it had been a different material that was more flexible and adapted more to the shape of my body, I think it would have been super cute, but I didn't feel comfortable wearing it. I have somewhat wider hips, so the 12 (European sizing) was better for me and, again, fit fine in the front, just looked gigantic from the back. The 10 (European sizing) was a little tight on my hips, but still looked gigantic from the back. It is very short, as I had read in other reviews, but that didn't bother me.

Comfortable and elegant
Pros: This dress fit perfectly, the arms weren't too tight, it was comfortable and it had more than enough room around me. The material is soft and stays wrinkle free. Cons: TOO SHORT! I am a short girl, so dresses are normally longer on me, but in this dress I was not able to raise my hands above my head without giving someone a booty shot. I liked this dress and really enjoyed wearing it. I received many compliments, and even asked who the designer was. Really enjoyed this rental.

Didn't fit at all
This dress was way too big for me. Unfortunately, I didn't get to wear it. The length was actually not too bad but the entire dress was way too roomy.

Since my body type is straight, shift dresses typically fit my body well. This one did but was so short I couldn't wear it! Cute print and fabric though.

Dress was unlike anyone else's! Edgy, fun, and different! It really stood out as being different!
It runs short (esp. if you are top-heavy) Fits a little boxy (so if you want to eat dinner...you can in this dress) I love love loved it!!! Could really dress it up, or make it edgy! Wished I owned it!!

So comfy and casual!
I rented this for my best friends rehearsal dinner and drinks after. Dress is easy to wear and travels well. The material doesn't wrinkle at all. Girls love the pattern the guys didn't get it...at all. It's snug in the hips and shoulders but was an overall great fit. Perfect length and great for the occasion!

Lovely pattern!
I wore this dress to a BBQ and it was perfect! Loved the length on my petite frame (I'm 5'0'' and it hit about 3'' above my knee) and structured fabric. It was a little hard to get into and the bottom is tight so it's not ideal for dancing or moving around a lot. I'd recommend this one!

I wore this out with girlfriends and since I had the dress a dinner next night also
The dress is only appropriate for very straight people. I have always considered myself small framed but this dress ran tight in the leg area.

Fun, different dress
I wore this dress to a rehearsal dinner. I ended up wearing the smaller size because the bigger one looked too boxy. It's a little short but the material is nice and thick so it stays in place. I love the snake on the front, its a fun and funky detail!

This was a lovely dress for a summer wedding. Very comfortable and different from the other dresses
i was warned to size up from the other reviews on the site which was inaccurate. I can wear a 6 or a 4 in US sizes and I ordered a 12 and 14. The 12 was a little too big but still looked nice. I would definitely order again from RTR

Runs large, boxy
I liked the boxy style of this dress, but as other reviewers noted that it ran small, I sized up, and I wish I hadn't. I found it to fit true to size, and an XS would have been better for me. Also note that the top of the dress is quite pink and not off-white or skin colored as it appears in the photo.

Comfortable and great pattern!
I wore this to a Kentucky Derby party and it was so perfect. It is really comfortable but the fabric and pattern are beautiful. I loved it! I would definitely wear it again (maybe without the silly hat next time)!

Perfect day dress
Dress runs small. I wore the size 10 and it fit very loose the way it is supposed to. The 8 was slightly tight around my hips and didn't look right.

Conservative with a pop
First off the sizing is UK and I'm normally a 4. After reviewing it said it ran small and to go up, so I went with a 12. I could of worn a 10, but maybe not Easter appropriate. The fabric has no give and if you raised your arms it's riding up. It came a inch or two above my knee. The colors are navy, white and up around the neckline is soft pink. There was small makeup line on my dress and thank goodness for my necklace to cover it up. And ladies there is a snake on the front and back, it made me laugh.

Don't size up if you are petite!
In all the reviews I read, everyone recommended sizing up for this dress as it ran small. I ordered to UK 12/14 (US 6/8 equivalent) and found both to be large on the shoulders/arms/stomach. So much so that it actually poofed up above my shoulders. The print, however, is stunning enough to save the poor fit of the garment, I think if you have a good shoulder and narrow hips, then this dress would be perfect for you! This is also a dress that can go casual or dressy (I dressed down with a day look in leggings/boots/leather jacket). Also, the darker stripe color is navy, not black--surprise!

Great print and fabric, roomier than I'd hoped
I guess I ordered the same dress in two different prints and really wish I'd sized down. The dress was wearable but much boxier than I would have liked. I ordered a 10, which was supposed to be equivalent to a 4US but seemed more like a 6-8.

INTERESTING and FUN!
I wore this for a Christmas party, it was a great shift and very fun, the only thing that surprised me is that there is a BIG WHITE SNAKE on the front of the dress that makes it a little bit weird!!

Bridal Shower Perfection!
Wore this to my cousin's bridesmaid luncheon. This runs a size small and is super short. Wore the UK8/US4 which fits like 0. Doesn't have any stretch to it so make sure to order a size up for this style.

Too small
The material was too stiff. The size ran small around the hips and big in the waist. I didn't even end of wearing it b/c of the fit and stiff material.

Stylist Review!
This dress is adorable! The print is so unique and fun! It does run quite small though, so I would definitely recommend sizing up 1-2 sizes. It is also very short! Will definitely be renting this dress soon!

Loved this dress, very class and fun with the print and go so many compliments all night long!
The arms were a big snug in getting the dress on since it's short sleeve so I wore the larger of the two. So comfortable and I wore it all night for a formal date party!
