beautiful colors and details!
I rented this as part of unlimited and planned to wear on a date night with my fiance. The weather turned out to be one of the coldest days of the year, so I wound up layering a slim fitting black turtleneck underneath the dress to make it bearable (and also wore two pairs of black opaque tights, with suede booties). I ordered the 46 (8) because I feel like usually Italian designers run small for me, but this dress was still on the large side, I could have definitely worn the 44 (6). I'm likely to try to this dress again in a smaller size when the weather gets warmers and wear it with nude sandals. The material is very sheer though so if not wearing tights, will need a slip.

Adorable and special!
In real life this looks cute and fresh. The shape is so easy for me to wear, it's flattering and sweet. However, while I know this is a special piece from a high end designer, the overall effect is a lovely daytime look. I would wear this to work even, with a cardi. I've tried it on and worn it around the house, and I'm going to pack it for an upcoming trip to London (on Unlimited), where I'll wear it to museums and nice lunches and possibly a leww formal dinner. I wear a 2 and I ordered the 40, and it's just right. I'm small chested (B cup) and I think this wouldn't be very flattering for a larger bust, it might squish you as there isn't stretch.

Absolutely adorable!
I wore this dress for a work trip and got lots of compliments. The color combo was very pretty, and the details on the dress was intricate. I was sad to have to return it. I would rent it again!

Beautiful dress, I loved it. If you don't mind standing out in a crowd, rent this one! Perfect!
The Italian sizing said I should order a 46 as I am a size 8. It was a little loose on me, but I still loved it. Perfect length for a party dress.

Great dress but you will need a slip underneath
Beautiful dress. The bottom fabric is very soft but it is very see through. You will need a slip underneath if you don't want everyone looking at your underwear. The top is fully lined so there's no problems there. The dress fits like an umpire waist. I would imagine this dress would be pretty short on someone over 5'7 like a baby doll dress. At 5'2 it just hit above my knee. I received numerous compliments even from strangers. Very cute dress that works for any age.

Fits perfectly, so flattering and unique. I did wear a half slip as the bottom is slightly sheer(2sheer layers on top of each other)

Didn't wear it - fairly generic cut and doesn't fit particularly well. Didn't feel high quality.
Just feels like a dress you could pick up anywhere, colors are fun but I just wasn't feeling it.

This is an AWESOME PIECE!
I received sooo many compliments on this dress and it was truly beautiful. When I first put it on, I didn't think I would like it because it was really big on me and I usually wear more body-con dresses but once I belted this it really really grew on me. I literally can get tell you how many compliments I got all day. Women were having me show them the tag to see the brand, it was a hit! I thought it was so chic and cute! I would totally wear this again. I love having the Unlimited package to experiment with dresses like this!

Pretty dress for Mother's Day
This dress fit true to size and was very elegant. It photographed well at the botanic gardens around all the flowers for Mother's Day. Recommended for an outdoor event!

Stunning and versatile dress
I wore this to work, but it would have worked equally well at a cocktail party or wedding. The bust area is not particularly roomy and the material has no stretch, so I went up one size from my usual and that was very comfortable and still flattering. Just a beautiful dress with a fun color combination and gorgeous detailing.

Beautiful and Easy to Wear
Baby doll style, embroidered top, light as air bottom. So pretty. Not perfect for my big bust (34DDD), but I made it work. If you are less busty than me its a great choice for Spring or Summer.

Beautiful Dress. A stand out from the crowd.
This dress is beautiful and very comfortable. The dress ran a size too big. Wish I would of went down a size. It was kinda loose but still able to wear. Wore it for Sunday brunch with friends and families. The dress was a hit. Everyone was asking where did I get the dress from. Even got left to right compliments from strangers. I love this dress and next time I would definitely rent a size down my normal size. I wore mine with wedges and it was perfect. The details on the dress is very unique. One of my fave from RTR.

pretty-ish
the lace on top is quite nice, but i didn't love the colors as much as i thought it would. the mustard yellow on the skirt isn't my favorite. i definitely felt like this was a dress women would appreciate, but men don't get, which is fine. i'm typically btwn a 2 and 4, 4 fit well w room to be comfortable.

Absolutely gorgeous - Need to wear a half slip.
Wore this to my bridal shower on an unseasonably cold April afternoon. The dress is stunning and unique. I received many compliments and highly recommend. The skirt is see through so you must wear a half slip. I also wore tights which made me feel a little more comfortable. I am very tall so it was a little short.

Unique dress for work or going out
This dress has a really unique look but is also easy to wear. Heads up to larger busted or larger rib cage ladies -- I am often between a 6 and an 8 so I initially ordered this in a 42/6. I couldn't zipper the dress and it seemed pretty tight in the chest. I recently sized up to the 44/8 and it is much better. The dress also is pretty see through in the skirt and needs some kind of shorts or slip. But very pretty!

Classy and chic!
Very much liked this dress! I ended up with a different dress for the occasion however this dress is very nice and great quality. The fit is true to size and for me, I decided on a different dress due to the event I was going to (color was the deciding factor) however if I had another event, I would consider renting this for sure!

Not fitted, but fun and comfortable!
The dress was beautifully made, bright, and unusual. It was perfect for a wedding in the Loire Valley. The skirt did blow up on occasion, and was quite sheer even when it wasn't doing that, so I had a slip on underneath. I worried about the lace on the top getting pulled by jewelry, and so took some of my bracelets off at one point in the evening. This dress is perfect for an event in the spring, summer, or outdoors. The yellow in the lace up top skews a little more neon than the yellow below, but it doesn't looks strange. The sleeves didn't cut at all, the dress was very comfortable!

Very pretty...would be great for a fall wedding, wore to a late August rehearsal dinner. Can see how you can dress up or down. Not my very favorite rental, but a beautiful dress.

Amazing, stunning, incredible!
This is the coolest dress I've ever warn. Totally flattering (the picture I posted does not do it justice), amazing embroidery, and colors that pop without being garish. I got so many compliments and felt amazing wearing it. Loved this dress.

Fabulous dress!!
So lightweight and easy to wear. The embroidery on the top is so gorgeous and the color really pops on olive skin tones. Bottom is very sheer so prepare to use a slip. Top is actually forgiving. I'm a 32DDD and didn't need to size up.

The pattern highlights the waist (making it look wider) and the hemline wasn't quite right for me.
After reading lots of very positive reviews, I was excited to receive this dress. However, I felt that it smashed my chest flat, made my waist seem wide and wasn't quite right length. Perhaps another size would have been better but given the tight chest and loose waist, I'm not sure about that. I ended up wearing it for a date night with a jacket over it.

unusual and fun
I loved this dress it was unusual and something I wouldn't normally wear or buy but I didn't wear it. It was really short, probably 3 inches too short. Probably perfect for someone younger but at 45 just was a bit too short for me!

Love love love!! The material is so light and airy - and the dress is gorgeous IRL.
Loose at the waist, fitted in the bodice, gorgeous feel and fabric. Would love to rent this dress again in the future. I wore this on a warm afternoon to see a play, but this dress could work in a variety of contexts and for various events. Highly recommend!!
