Loved the lace!
I thought the dress fit very well! The style seemed very unique to me and definitely different from what other people at the wedding were wearing. The color of the dress in person was more dull than what I perceived in the pictures, but I thought it was still a pretty dress.

Friend's night wedding
The dress was beautiful, but I'm normally a size 0 and this was way too big for me. I felt like I was wearing a bag the whole night. I'm 5'2", 108 lbs, 32C.

Perfect Rehearsal dinner dress for a friend's wedding
The arm holes are very low. I tried wearing a bandeau bra at first but it wasn't lacy and looked terrible. I ended up wearing a front stick on bra which worked really well. Plenty of stretch and room for the baby bump. I'm around 28 weeks in this photo but measuring 29-30. I felt covered even in length which was a concern. The lace was a little faded which was a bummer but overall the dress was very nice and comfortable. Obviously my weight/bust size is a little different currently. I'm around 36DD and around 170lbs but it's literally all in the belly at this point.

Trapeze dress, so it is roomy
As advertised this is a trapeze dress, so if you were hoping to define your waist get a belt. The waist was also below my true waist so I didn't think it complimented my body very well. That being said, it is a pretty color and would be fun for dancing.

Wore it at 33 weeks pregnant!
I needed a dress for a shower, and I really didn't want to buy a maternity dress, plus so many were so ugly! I had actually had this marked for a while as a favorite and when I did a search for bump friendly, I was excited this came up as an option. I did order the medium and the large, but I ended up wearing the medium because the arm holes on the large were so big. The only semi-drawback is that the lining was definitely pulling up, but it still covered "the goods" and because the bottom of the dress is so full, you really couldn't tell. One other weird thing is that the neck felt like it was pulling a little bit, but it wasn't really an issue.

I felt so comfortable in this dress. It fit great and hit me in just the right spot on my legs (I am on the short side- 5'3").

The PERFECT dress!
I rented this dress for our engagement photos and could not be more please with how well it photographs. My fiance loved the dress, and I got compliments from our photographer and strangers while we were taking our photos. I would 100% rent this dress again.

Didn't love the fit
The neck closure was too tight and the waist was too large for me. I ended up not wearing it. Beautiful color though.

I wore this dress to a summer Florida wedding!
I loved how lose and breezy it was. It is WAY large for size. I ordered XS because I read previous reviews. I am usually a S or M. It was super comfy and fun to dance in because it wasn't restricting at all!

Bump friendly!
I wore this dress for my husbands holiday party at 29 weeks (and ~15lbs above my normal weight). Very bump friendly, but the arm holes were a little large. I wore a stick on bra which worked but was a little uncomfortable when pregnant. :) Lots of compliments, pairs well with sash, runs large, would rent again!

To big
I recently lost weight and the size was to big I over estimated my size. I went from a 12 to a size 8. This was not RTR fault.

The color and the high neck make it looks elegant and yet bohemian. Felt really pretty!
This dress runs so big. I should have gotten and XS not a Small and Medium as my back up. If you notice carefully in the picture, my husband and holding the dress fabric in his hand, hahah! Otherwise I did love it, just felt myself pulling the material back around my waist all night.

Perfect for a farm wedding!
As many other reviewers mentioned, this dress runs large and is not fitted in the middle. I paired it with a brown belt to cinch in the waist a bit, and brown cowgirl ankle boots to match. It was very flattering and I felt comfortable and stylish all night! This dress is great for dancing because of the full, lacy skirt.

Sophisticated BoHo
Gorgeous piece worn to Thanksgiving dinner with family. The perfect merge of magic and sophistication. Color is awesome. Paired with design sheer tights and booties. Neck was a little uncomfortable, but worth it. One of my favorite rentals yet.

Beautiful color and detail, did run large!
I wore this for a vintage party, but would also be perfect for any formal event. I would prefer to wear with nude shoes, but didn't have any closed toe shoes besides black. The weight of the dress was awesome and is very flattering, but I was disappointed a bit as it was baggy in the waist, the arm holes cut too low to be able to wear a strapless bra invisibly ( I had to wear a bralette, which actually look really cute), and it was a bit longer than I was expecting, so I'd definitely recommend sizing down as I believe all of these issues I had would have been resolved with a smaller size. I highly recommend this dress!

Blue Dream at Broadway
I'm glad I listened to previous reviewers and ordered a size down. The dress does run a bit large but as long as you order a size down for your backup - all is good! I wore this to a Broadway show in Chicago in May. I wanted something beautiful but not too formal that would work in breezy weather and this was perfect. The weather was a bit chilly so I ended up pairing it with tights and booties which worked fine. I'm sure it wouldn't work with a typical bra but I had a Free People lacy bralette that complimented the dress perfectly. The blue is stunning and the lace is nice. Overall - loved the dress!

Great dress that was comfortable and boho but still very chic!
This dress was super comfortable and allowed me to dance and eat as much as I wanted without feeling like I might pop. IT RUNS LARGE. I cannot say this enough. I was worried I would need a MR or LR ( I wear a size 10 and am 5'9) but I actually wore the SR! the MR was too loose in the waist and did not have much shape on me. I will state the armholes are cut large so beware of certain bras. Otherwise I got tons of compliments and it stood our at in a sea of little black dresses. Very victorian/boho chic that can be dressed up or down.

Fun Lacey dress
The color was exactly what I wanted. Does fit large, plan to wear a belt. Very "flowy" and probably great for dancing/prancing. I made it work from my seated position ;)

beautiful and classy dress.
It was great overall, but it was too large around arms. It sits low, so bra became visible. Other than that, it was great. Got lots of compliments.

Soft lace in a pretty color.
Didn't end up wearing this as it hung a little to boho for me. It didn't hug any curves. Just hung. So if you like something comfortable this could be a good option.

Comfortable & Classy
I normally wear a small to medium, but wore an XS. I was glad I listened to reviews and sized down for my back up. The dress was comfortable and sturdy, much thicker than expected, so don't worry about being cold in the Fall or Spring-- it was perfect for a midwest Fall wedding. I'd rent again. The dress worked well with a stick-on bra since that arm holes are huge (I recommend Targets Superlite Adhesive: http://www.target.com/p/fashion-forms-women-s-superlite-adhesive-bra-c/-/A-12730176?ref=tgt_adv_XS000000&AFID=google_pla_df&CPNG=PLA_Women+Shopping_Brand&adgroup=SC_Women&LID=700000001170770pgs&network=g&device=c&location=9022121&gclid=CMqWi83DodACFQgMaQodiUkNPw&gclsrc=aw.ds).

Beautiful
Based on others review, I ordered a extra-small and small and glad I did. I wore the extra-small when I normally wear mediums and sizes 4-6. With the extra-small, I was able to wear a strapless bra and it did not show anywhere. This dress was not tight fitting at all, which I appreciated but still looked fabulous. The neck line is amazing and sexy I didn't feel like I needed it to be tight. The dress was fun to dance in.

Stood out among a sea of black dresses.
Pros: wrinkle free, hides a tummy and all lower body problem areas. Cons: Runs big, especially under the arms. Overall the dress fit nicely when worn with a belt. I would have preferred it to be slightly more fitted and it would still have had the desired effect. I recommend sizing down.

Stylish dress for fall New England wedding
The dress is beautiful lace that has a nice flow to twist and turn while dancing. It does run large so get the size down (thank you fellow customers). It is nice/fitted around the chest & waist and flows at hips. I love the blue color. Received many compliments!

Lovely lace 20 weeks pregnant
Fit my pregnant body after I gained 20 pounds. Wasn't expecting a medium would fit. I Had previously rented the copper version of this dress before, which I liked better. Ended up getting this as a backup for the Trina Turk origami orange dress, but loved that one so much more! This one was nice and fit well, but the modern style of the other dress was more appealing and more flattering on my pregnant body.

Loved this dress!!!
I wore this dress to an event with a 1925's Paris theme. I felt great in this all night and received many compliments. Definitely recommend reading through the reviews, the dress does run big especially in the chest area. The armholes are larger than most sleeveless dresses and a traditional bra/strapless bra will not work, I used double sided tape on the side and on my chest right below where the lace shows through to keep in in the place I wanted and it worked great for the night with no issues. I would definitely rent this again for an event. I also rented the benamun crystal cambon pearl bracelet to go with it.

Great dress, but runs big!
This dress was very nice! My only problem with it was it was too big. I had to put a belt around the waist for it too look good. I got tons of compliments on it all night, and my husband wanted me to purchase it until he saw the actual cost of the dress lol. So, it's a great dress jus make sure to get a smaller size!

This dress is gorgeous!
This is an absolutely gorgeous dress and the neckline is stunning. As other reviews have stated, the dress does run large. Some people have recommended belting it, but the belt was too informal for my event (pre-wedding cocktail party) and I found it was fine without. The arm holes were a bit big with some potential for side-boob and perhaps that could have been solved with a smaller size, but my backup was a M. Although I was worried, my strapless bra didn't really show despite the large arm holes. Overall, I was really happy with the dress and found it extremely comfortable and elegant.

Great dress, received lots of compliments!!
It does run large, I got a small and it was almost a teensy big, which is why I wore a belt with it. Also, I thought I'd wear my hair up, so you could see the details around the neck better, but it actually looked better down, unless maybe you're going for the super fancy look. This was an outdoor wedding though. Great dress! Loved twirling the fabric around :)

Perfect dress for a barn wedding in the country!
I was pretty concerned about sizing for this dress since everyone commented how large it runs. I ended up wearing a XS which is ridiculous since I'm normally around an 8. Definitely size way down. The dress was super comfortable, easy to wear and flattering. Don't plan to wear a regular bra though - the arm holes are way to big. Definitely was sad to send this dress back - sorry for the dark photo.

Great for dancing!
The color was true to the picture and dress definitely ran large. I expected to fit into a SM and ordered the XS just in case-even that was bigger than I'd have liked. But it was very comfortable and fun to dance in because of all the swish in the skirt. Decided not to wear a bra because everything I had showed somewhere-the armholes are cut quite low. Looks best with heels. If I bought the dress I might even go with a XS Petite just to shorten it up and get the bodice in the right place for my small chest. I'm a 34A, 5'8", 135 lbs.
