So many compliments! As usual with a RTR dress! It was so comfortable, but it does run LARGE.

The dress was beautiful, but it was big. Go a size down and you'll be set!

Gorgeous dress, perfect for a formal/outdoor wedding in Miami

Loved the color and lace on this dress. It has a gorgeous neckline and back. It does run large around the waist, but I belted it and had no problems. I got tons of compliments on this dress and would recommend it, just select a size smaller.

I wanted to love this dress, but I just couldn't do it.

As mentioned in other reviews, this dress does in fact run very, very large. The fit is not tapered in around the waist as it shows in the models picture, so I had to find a belt to wear to make the dress flattering enough to wear in public, otherwise it would have hung like a tent or parachute on me. Just not flattering or feminine in the least. The arm holes were also so incredibly large that even a nude strapless bra was nearly impossible to hide, so I had no choice but to pin it here and there if I wanted to make the dress work, and I was bound and determined to make it work! Not the best circumstances for my first RTR experience, but overall not the end of the world either.

Modest for a religious event but still unique

I was so impressed with the quality of this dress. The color is amazing. I received SO MANY compliments all night. I would love to purchase this dress. I wore nude Chloe shoes and had a black sheer shrug. I also belted it for a little more structure.

Great Customer Service

This dress was extremely beautiful but the cut around the chest was less than flattering for a larger chested women!! The waist and length were great, needed a good steam but I was unable to wear the dress due to the chest cut. I wear a 36 DD and had way too much side boob to wear this comfortably. :(

I couldn't wear this dress. Runs really big. I was sad about it because it was beautiful. I'm a size 4. Rented the small.

Pretty good experience overall.

This was my second RTR experience. Unlike the first dress I rented, this one was noticeably more worn, likely due to the nature of the material. (Lace snags really easily.) As other reviewers mentioned, it runs large. I thought I would be between a medium and large, but wish now I had requested a small. Still fit ok, but I was a little self-conscious of my strapless bra showing on the sides, and was constantly pulling it up. Outside of that, I received a lot of compliments on the dress. It was unique and special, but subdued enough for a wedding.

Got so many compliments!

it was a little chilly so the length actually helped me stay warm! It was easy to move and dance in. DEFINITELY get a size down. I'm 5'4" and 140 lbs and I wore an extra small. Usually a size 6 in dresses!

I wore this to see The Lion King. Great for a theater night. Wish I could keep it one more night.

Pretty dress. Love the lace! The length was a bit weird, unless you're 5'10. Definitely order a size down! It runs large, and the armholes are deep. Appropriate undergarments required! I'm glad RTR got the blue one in because copper isn't my color. Just wish they had the shorter black one.

Received sooooo many compliments!!!

Loved this dress!!! I generally wear a medium (if not a large) and after reading reviews, I ended up wearing a small and it fit great!! I received so many compliments! Wore this to a brunch bridal shower. The color was beautiful, pics don't do it justice! Definitely get the next size down.

Beautiful lace & super comfy

I'm only 5'4'' so it was a bit long on me. If it were warmer I would have worn wedges, but I wore flat boots and a cardigan to complete the look. I got many compliments on this dress and it was great for a bridal shower at a winery! I absolutely loved the blue color and the lace.

Great color, collar itchy

Loved the color. I agree with others to go a size down. The collar gets uncomfortable very quickly but was glad to have rented this item. Swirls nicely when you spin ;).

Gorgeous color

Love the cut of this dress & the color is vivid and eye catching. I was surprised how much space I had in the Medium and was swimming in fabric at my waist- I may return and try the Small. There was some minor fraying and fabric pulling (to be expected, as it is primarily lace) but nothing that makes it unwearable.

Elegant, classy, but not too formal

Both the small and medium fit, but I'm a medium/large girl. I wore it for an equine benefit so I had dressy cowboy boots on, and got a lot of compliments. Beautiful dress!

Quick - easy - painless - GORGEOUS DRESS !

Loved the fit. I was able to not wear a bra which rocks! The fabric was fantastic and so comfortable! Based on reviews I ordered an XS and a S. Ended up wearing the XS which isn't normal for me. I'm 5'6" and about 135 pounds, the dress wasn't tight around my stomach or anything - very flowy under the bust. So great having two size options !! Love love love.

Gorgeous, Needed a belt for shaping

Beautiful dress, but for my body type I had to wear a belt with it so it didn't look like I was wearing a lace moomoo. Not for someone who doesn't like the feel of a turtle neck as I it was a little tight around the neck. I got tons of compliments on it though!!!

Perfect for a Whistling Straights wedding!

This dress is beautiful but definitely runs large. I appreciated the extra space in the waist but there was maybe too much extra fabric in the chest. I would definitely rent this dress again though!

Elegant Lace

Beautiful blue lace, great dancing dress, twirls beautifully. I have a small chest (34B) and I don't think having a bigger chest would look flattering since the waist doesn't really cinch in. My only gripe is that the waist wasn't fitted and it definitely runs a couple sizes too small. Wore this to a summer wedding and it was a fun and different dress to wear..

Runs very large

I loved this dress but couldn't wear it. I'm normally a size 10 or 12. I ordered M and L and the M was swimming on me. Dress runs very large and would recommend sizing down a size of two for this one.

Not ideal for my Amazon sisters

I would not recommend this dress for my big boned sisters. As an hourglass gal with big boobs (36DDD), a nice waist and thick hips, I'm always looking for dresses that make me feel smaller and enhance my greater qualities. This dress accents your arms and doesn't do a great job accenting the waistline. The neckline is super high and maybe for the first time I was very sympathetic to my husband's feelings about ties. However, for a smaller gal, this dress was so fun to wear! The skirt is so full (I felt like twirling all night!), the color is lovely and I got a number of compliments! I was also disappointed with RTR's service. I didn't know they closed so early. As this was my first rental, I did want to chat a stylist about looking into overnighting another dress. By the time I was home from work, had tried on the dress and wanted to call, it was 5:37 on Thursday and no one was there to discuss my issues. By Friday morning I had decided to keep the dress, but I think I would have been much happier if I had chatted with a stylist and maybe had a backup dress sent out. I

Perfect birthday brunch dress!

I LOVED this dress. It was so flattering and the color was beautiful! I got tons of compliments. I usually wear an 8 or 10 (long) and the Medium (regular) fit perfectly. I'm 5'10" and the dress hit me at exactly the right spot length wise.

Beautiful dress, runs big

I received numerous compliments for this dress! The dress ran large but thought the length was perfect even with my petite height. Also, the dress I received was on the "over worn" side - the overwork lace was obvious under daylight.

Comfy, conservative, creative

I chose this dress for a company dinner in Las Vegas because I wanted something that was comfy enough to eat a heavy meal in, sleeveless for the 100 degree temperature outside, and pretty yet unique. This was dressy enough, too, so it completely fit the bill! I love the color and the lace. The length was unflattering which is why I docked a star. I'm only 5'5" so the length hits me mid calf which makes my long legs look super stumpy (in my opinion). If you're under 5'8" or so, you can do as I did and wear nude heels and it'll look better because your legs will look less short/cut off. Luckily I was seated 95% of the night so I didn't mind! Also, I'm not pregnant but if you are, this dress definitely has room to conceal a bump (or in my case, a food baby, ha!). If you are debating, get it.

Lots of compliments all night!

I wore this dress to a military ball. It got tons of compliments and I loved the skirt! It definitely does run large. I usually wear a size medium, or a large in some cuts/styles. And the small fit me perfectly without being tight. I wore a stick on bra with mine since regular bras and strapless bras showed under the arms. The only down point that didn't make it 5/5 stars was just the overall cut for my body type. I definitely have hips and I'm not skinny by any means. The cut of it didn't accentuate my smallest part of my torso and made my hips look way bigger than normal. Other than that, i liked it a lot and was very happy with my first RTR experience!

I rented this dress for a photo shoot, the quality is very good but the dress was a bit worn. Make sure you size down as many of the other women have stated, it runs rather large.. my model was swallowed up in this dress!

The unique neckline and fun skirt made this dress a win.

The dress felt slightly large in the waist/lower ribcage area, otherwise, it fit well. I received compliments all night on this number!

Fit was weird and it smelled

I loved the color and skirt of this dress. It was a great dancing dress! And had fantastic movement. I will admit i did a few twirls. The fit was weird- the xs body fit well but the top and neck was too tight. The sm fit perfectly on top but was not as fitted as I would have liked. And it SMELLED like it had been sitting in a cheap Motel for weeks. I received lots of compliments on it however.

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 :)
