I had to return it.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small

This dress had a very awkward fit. The straps were too long in both the 8 and the 10 and in both dresses the bottom half of the slip was too tight. The way the zipper was sewn in the lining and the dress made a very noticeable bump on my butt and made the fit horrible. I have been happy with previous rentals but this dress was not satisfactory.

It is a great fit, but since I am very petite the straps were very long. I pinned them in the back so they would fit, and paired it with a small cardigan.

Cute design but not flattering

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
This was suppose to be my fun wedding reception dress, but I ended up not wearing it because the fit was strange. The shoulder straps were too big and the section below the chest was too tight. It was cute in the bag but the material was similar to that of antique curtains (not comfortable).

I got this dress as a back-up for my senior formal. The fabric was gorgeous, thick, and textured. The cut would have been flattering if not for the abnormally large bust. I'm petite and couldn't fill out the top, and the shoulders were way too big. If you have broader shoulders and a bigger bust, it would probably look great! Luckily it was only a back-up and the dress I planned on wearing fit perfectly!

The dress seems to have been made for someone who is at least 5'8. Unfortuantely the dress fit well everywhere but the straps were WAY too long. I couldn't wear it in either size. I'm 5'5" and a size 4 or 6. If you're tall or have a very long torso, this dress may work for you.

I didn't originally order this dress but it was sent to me in lieu of another dress I ordered that got damaged and couldn't be sent. Thought the sylists at RTR did a great job choosing this for me and I LOVED the style and fit, it was just too fancy for the baptism I rented it for! The fabric is substantial enough that I felt structured and "contained" in my "problem" areas (ie my tummy). Would definitely order it again!

Love the fit of the dress. Other reviewers are correct that the straps run a bit long however, if you're bustier it won't be a big problem. The color in-person is more of a gold-tone than the picture. I didn't actually end up wearing this as it was too cold, but would definitely recommend.

Runs REALLY big!

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
This dress runs EXTREMELY large. I ordered it as a backup and definitely didn't end up wearing either of the sizes I got. I am usually a 2, so ordered a 2 and a 4. The two was so big that I'm not even sure a 0 would have fit. I have a very small chest, so that was really big, but it was even super loose in the hips. Also, the fabric looked and felt cheap. I wouldn't recommend this dress to small figures.

Straps are too long!

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
This was my first choice to wear to my bridal shower. But when I tried it on the straps were just too long. It was not comfortable. If I pinned the straps to make it fit better the bunched up fabric was very noticeable on my shoulder. I would recommend this dress to someone with a long torso. The bottom of the dress looked amazing. It was unfortunate that the straps were too long.

I was very excited to get this dress I thought it was gorgeous on the model and was hoping it would be the same on me. It wasn't. Maybe I'm too short for the dress. The shoulders didn't fit me well and the length was almost to my knees. The fit was all off and the pattern reminded me of my grandmas curtains. It was nothing like I thought it would be. A major disappointment and I didn't end up wearing it.

Cute but not super comfortable

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I love the idea of this dress and think it could be great if tailored. For me, the straps were too long and the bust too tight. I usually wear a 4, but there's no way those straps were staying on, and there was a huge gap in the back. So luckily I had a back-up size 2 which still didn't fit great. It squeezed my chest which wasn't flattering because it's also VERY low cut; but at least the straps were a little tighter. Overall it was still cute for my bridal shower and I got a lot of compliments.

I will admit, it was my fault for not paying closer attention to the details of the dress. I got the dress for my engagement photos and sent it back the same day. However, I did not expect the fabric, I had assumed it would be a lighter fabric, it was heavier and more like my grandma's drapes. If you know this, then you will love the dress.

I have 2 critiques for this dress.. 1) The straps are too long (had to use safety pins). 2) The fabric is beautiful but it can be a little itchy at the underarm area.. like it starts to be a little painful/irritating. But other than that, I got so many compliments for this dress and I felt really pretty in it :)

The dress is very pretty in person. It's less white and more cream, not the way it looks online at all. It's fitted at the waist, which would have been fine if I were a few inches taller. I'm only 5'2", and the straps were a good 4 inches too long. I tried to pin them, but there was so much extra fabric it just wasn't acceptable. I ended up not wearing it.

It was a really nice dress that I saw on Anthropologie's website, but when I received it, it was a weird shape. The size 6 was too big up top for me and in size 4, it smushed my boobs. So I ended wearing a dress from Saks that I bought for my engagement party.

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size

This dress fit true to size and was gorgeous. It was the perfect pick for a graduation ceremony. The straps were definitely long (as expected based on previous reviews) so that's something you may want to prepare for. Aside from that, it cinches the waist and is a cute cream color with thick brocade fabric. It doesn't wrinkle very easily and will continue to keep its shape. Overall, it was beautiful!

I was so excited for wear this for my graduation but found the dress awkward and unflattering.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
As much as I wanted to love this dress, I found the bust area fit awkwardly, so much so that I had to return both sizes to RTR. The straps were too long on both the size 4 and 6 for me, and despite the size 4 fitting almost everywhere else, the bust area smushed my chest and was extremely unflattering. The size 6 was too large, again with the exception of the bust area. I would not recommend renting this dress if you are over a D cup, or do not have a long enough torso to accommodate the straps.

I'm sad to report this but I never actually got wear the dress. I rented it for my wedding as my second dress. Once I actually tried on the dress it was to big :-(. My wedding was the next day so it was to late to return the dress. Over all I was sad I couldn't wear the dress but I have to say that the over all RTR experience was quick and easy. I hope to rent from RTR again in the future.

This dress is beautiful on! I received so many compliments! I added a skinny braided gold belt & wore neutral pumps. The straps were a little long for me but I wore the rental necklace that took up chest room. Otherwise I felt bare without it. The dress hit me just above the knee which was good for my event. Def recommend this dress.

it is a lovely dress as stated in all the other reviews and YES the straps are long as well. I thought the material to be a little scratchy under the skirt so if you are sensitive to that move on to another dress or be prepare to wear a short slip. My personal opinion is that I wish I chose another dress for this time of year (June) I believe the dress has a heavy look to it that is better suited to fall/winter that you cant really see in the photos, it is thick and weighty

I ordered a size 10 with a 12 as a backup. I own other Erin Fetherston dresses and always wear a size 10. Unfortunately, the size 10 had a small but noticeable black spot on the waist area. I didn't have a back-up dress, so I had to wear the 12. The straps were long and the dress was big on me, but it worked okay. I would have preferred to wear the size 10, which looked fantastic.

This is not a dress for long waisted girls! Overall, the proportions were just odd, and I feel like you have to have a very specific body type, similar to the model, for it to look good. The fabric was heavier than I expected, and I probably wouldn't rent it for a spring / summer event.

The fabric of this dress is stunning! And the quality of the structure is so luxurious. I was so sad to find that my torso is so short the the straps ended up being 2.5-3" too long and unpinnable. It would've been great if I wasn't so short. This dress is meant for someone with a long torso!

The dress was classy and simple -- perfect for attending a graduation!

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
Like other reviewers have said, the straps were a little long -- I didn't tape them, just wore a padded bra so my chest filled out some of the extra space up top. The 2 fit perfectly (I'm between a 2 and a 4 normally) and the fabric was rich and thicker than I expected but not too hot for a May graduation.
