Classy and GORGEOUS

Rented this for a formal rehearsal dinner. LOVED the dress so much that I'm debating buying it. I'm not usually a long dress person but this was an amazing choice. I felt like a princess and conservative around my boyfriend's family. The fabric was rich, the neckline adjusts with three individual clasps, and no need for a special bra.

Flirty & Feminine

The hooks at the front of the dress were a lifesaver - would have felt like too much cleavage for work. Great fit - lots of compliments. Would definitely rent this again.

Great dress if you're tall

Loved this midi dress, was perfect for a chilly spring day because the fabric is a heavier weight. I wore with ankle booties and was comfy in this dress all day. I do think it ran a bit small in the natural waist so if you have a wider waist I would size up. I'm 5'10 and this was the perfect length so shorter girls beware this dress may be too much fabric for you (or turn into a maxi)

Perfect dress to twirl!

I rented this dress for a getaway weekend with my husband. Spent the day walking around the Monterey bay aquarium. I had my #instagramhusband take some pics of me twirling! I would love to buy this dress!

Good everyday dress

Soft fabric. Pretty feminine dress with full skirt. This is a heavy/bulky dress so don't order it to pack on vacation. Sizing: I originally ordered this dress in a size 6 but the fitted waist was too small for me. I am thick waisted. So I went up a size to an 8, which zipped up but was still on the tight side at the waist. The 8 top was cut low on me so I had to wear something under it for work...would be fine without when not at work.

Comfortable and flowy

I really liked this dress. It has a side zipper though which I found hard to zip on my own. I had to get a friend to zip it for me. A bit low cut too, had to wear a Cami under it. Great for every day wear.

Great fit. Material is a little heavy. But so nicely made. Buttons in back very cute. Perfect for graduation.

Super comfortable and can be dressed up or down!

I wore this to my sister's graduation and loved it! The fabric is heavier than you would expect and probably wouldn't be great on a hot day, but for a mild spring day it was perfect. It definitely runs large and I'd recommend sizing down to avoid drowning in fabric. The neckline is low but if that's an issue, then a camisole underneath looks fine! The buttons going up the back of the dress are also a great detail and the skirt is so much fun to walk in. The only negative is that the side zipper has a tendency to get caught near the belt and you might need some help getting it up. Overall this is a fun dress that can definitely be dressed up or down!

Dress

On a petite frame, this dress hits the ankle which makes it versatile and heels was not necessary. The material is a bit heavier then the usual maxi dresses but still flowed when walking. The cut is a little low, still comfortable enough to wear without a tank underneath but I chose to wear a tank. Without a tank, the buttons in the back and hook closure in the front gives it a little sexy detail.

Looks amazing on!

This dress. Where to start? It's heavy. Don't wear this on a super hot day like I did! Despite the weight, it flows really nicely. And because of the thickness of the dress, it's super flattering! The buttons on the back are a b**** to do, I recommend doing them before you put on the dress if you can still get it on. The front is pretty low, and has little latch thingies holding it together. I was concerned at first, but they stayed done all day at work. I don't have much up top, so it was appropriate for my office, but may not be for those with larger breasts. I tied the string in the middle around my waist and then in the back to give it a little more excitement. I'm 6' tall and this went to mid calf on me. Would prob be maxi length on shorter ladies. Overall, wouldn't rent again but I liked it for work today!

Great dress. Heavy fabric.

Loved the dress. The fabric is pretty heavy. So I wouldn't recommend for a hot summer day. On the plus side- I didn't have to worry about it blowing up in the wind.

Fun and feminine

I liked this dress and it was great for my occasion. Eye hole hook on my dress was missing so had to fasten with safety pin. There is something funny about the ruffles but I still really liked the dress.

Thicker fabric so is perfect for 80 degree weather - any hotter and it might feel a little stuffy. Great pattern and farmhouse feel. Everyone loved it!

Really enjoyed the details. Minus one star for the zipper being difficult to get over the seam. I'm tall and it hit right above the ankle

Very flattering and very fun to wear!

Got a bunch of complements in this dress! LOVED IT! It was super fun and perfect for summer everyday wear. Material is a little heavy but it didn't bother me. Buttons are hard to button in the back though! Definitely need someone to help you out to get it on. Would definitely rent this again!

Conservative with a fun print

I need a conservative dress for a holy site in Israel but one that would be cool enough to wear in very hot weather. This dress is very heavy and you need a black tank top with it for proper classy coverage. With that in mind, I think it's a high quality dress! Great for a winery perhaps!

Loved this! Wanted to keep. Works year round, everyday, flip flops, heels, boots with cardigan!

Flattering. Nice elastic waist makes it comfie but belt keeps it flattering. Cut would work on anyone. Wore this so many times and probably should have kept but that's why I have unlimited! It's not too thick or thin so it's really good year round. Maybe best for early summer, spring and fall. Another "rent when you don't have a particular function but it's time to fill your unlimited closet". It's a great dress. Everyone loved it.

Comfy and cute

Pros: great cut and fit for bust. Length is just right for maxi. Doesn't feel cheap. Cons: zipper on side was a little hard to get up at seam(maybe could've gone up size and it would be smooth zipping)

Odd fit

I am 5'2" and this was a bit big in the bust/shoulder area. It went from being baggy in the bust, to very tight around the ribcage. Very odd fit for someone who is more petite.

Pretty

This was a pretty dress that I got lots of compliments on, but I felt it was too long and just had too much fabric. It fit great on top though. The fabric was also a bit thicker than expected so I would not rent in summer heat.

So Many Compliments

I wore this dress for my friendsgiving. I forgot to take pictures so this is all I could find. But I got so many compliments on this dress, it might have to be a purchase! It cinches in around the waist, which is super flattering. The buttons up the back are a super cute detail. The dress was the perfect length with flats and this pattern is so perfect for any fall/holiday gathering. If you have any thoughts about getting it - just do it!! You won't regret it!

Floaty cool comfy and a bit sexy

Very low cut but my dress had three hook and eye claps in the chest and I did up 2 of them. I wore it with sneakers and a denim jacket in the day and heels and a leather jacket in the night. Really loved it and was surprised that my husband did too

For a chilly spring wedding, the long heavy skirt was key!!!

This was the perfect answer for an outdoor May wedding on what was unfortunately a VERY rainy, very chilly day. The floral pattern worked for the season, and I was hoping to find something tea-length so I wouldnt have to be lifting up a long skirt off the wet muddy dancefloor all night long. I wore a black leather jacket over this later in the evening and worked out GREAT. The long heavy skirt kept my legs warm and it was so easy to move in, while still being very cinched at the waist. I usually wear a 2, but decided to go with the 0 for a snugger fit around my chest - I found the 2 was a bit more slouchy up top. Overall a great find for the occasion!!!

So cute, but it was a tad too small!

I was torn between the 6 and the 8. The 6 fit in the chest (38C), but it didnt fit right in the waist. I was so bummed because the style is so cute, the weight is nice, and the back is so fun!

Pretty dark floral

The dress itself is very pretty but the fabric is pretty thick and takes up a lot of room in a suitcase so might not be ideal for travel!

Good daytime dress

I wore this for a bridal shower. It's long (I'm 5'7) and it was almost maxi length on me, not midi. There's kind of a lot of fabric but it was good for a chilly spring day.

Flattering design

I loved the button detail on the back of this dress. Due to its heavy fabric, I would consider this dress more for fall. Definitely looks cute with booties. Probably a decent date night dress! The zipper was awkward for me to get up on my own (on the side and the fabric bunching caused some issues). The top was very low cut (read: it looked better without a bra) and had clasps to make it even more low cut. I'm not a prude, but I didn't feel comfortable teaching in this dress so I sent it back.

Not what I envisioned but very wearable

I didn't even recognize the dress when it came. It is not as black as pictured, more dotted grey and much heavier than I expected. I was disappointed when I first got it but i ended up wearing it four times! Easy to match with black booties and a leather jacket. Date, work, church, you name it! It was pretty low in front so I wore a tank under for work.

Engagement photo dress

This was a backup dress for my engagement pictures. I'm usually a 6 but I liked how the 4 fit better because it gave me a good shape. The fabric is thicker so the dress feels heavier then expected- but not in a bad way. I recommend!

I felt like a twirly goddess!

The first dress I was sent had a large stain, but RTR quickly sent me a replacement. I was a bit disappointed because I did not get to wear it for the event ordered it for, but I'm glad this dress is causal enough to wear it almost anywhere. The unique details on the dress make it extra special, and I may purchase this one since it fit so perfectly!

So Fun + well designed

I wore this to a boho beach picnic - the style was perfect for the day! My favorite parts about this dress are the hook and eye clasps on the chest that kind of allow you to "choose your own cleavage" adenture; I went full throttle but it was nice to know there was a more demure option! Also, the tie waist gave me some accentuation of my figure, which was great to have with such a full skirt.
