Great style/material but color isn't the best

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I loved the cut and style of this dress. I was surprised at how this dress was actually very flattering, most of the time draping like that dosen't do anything for me. I loved how light the material was. This dress would be great for a summer formal affair or by the ocean. However, the color was more of a mustard yellow then a bright yellow. I didn't wear it for that reason and went with my other option. Other than the color, I loved it. Wish it had worked for me.

Got this dress for a wedding in Santa Barbara and it was perfect - so comfortable and the built-in-corset was a major plus. Paired it with black patent pumps and clutch to glam it up for a black tie wedding. Thanks to facebook, not sure I can rent this unique number any time soon, but I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a chic dress with a laid-back vibe

Love loved this dress- one of my favorites. The color is amazing in person and it has a built in bra that holds you in. I could have worn the 2L or the 4L but went with the 2 because it was more secure. The long length was perfect length on my height. I paired it with the Yours To Keep Emerald earrings and got a ton of compliments. Going to rent again for sure- would even love to buy it!

If I could I would absolutely buy this dress — it is definitely comfortable and versatile enough to wear again and again. I love that it has a built in bra that zips which made me feel extra secure. The fabric is also so airy and light, perfect for an outdoor wedding or event. I plan on renting again!

This dress was amazing! I wore the 6 Long and it was the perfect dress for a late afternoon wedding. The easy flow of this dress was the best! I could sit down, stand up, move around, and dance at the reception without once having to worry about adjusting my dress. The top stayed up with no problems, even while dancing with a one-year-old! The color was as pictured- a nice mustard yellow- so it worked for Alabama in the fall, even though the weight of the material is clearly meant for spring or summer. I ADORED this dress and now wish I could find it in my size to buy!

Not the dress for my body

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I got this dress for a wedding and it was really unflattering. I have a pear shape and a bit of a pooch from recently having kids and the waistline fell directly at my natural waist, which emphasized my lower stomach. I did wear Spanx, but it gave me no shape at all. A friend tried it on, though, and it was beautiful on her. She has a very straight body-type with thin hips. This isn't the dress for a pear-shape. BUT, it has a bra in it, which is really nice! (first picture is me, second is my friend)

I wore this to my brother's wedding in south florida. I wanted something special and timeless since I knew my family would definitely be keeping these photos for ever. I loved that the color looked great in both the daylight and at night. It was unique and glamorous, while also being extremely comfortable and flattering. There is even a pretty supportive shelf bra built in as well so no need for a bra even when dancing!

Overall fit: True to Size

If you are in doubt about the length, go with the regular. I am 5'7" and the Long dress was too long even with heels. Also, the built in bra was amazing, but I had to up-size because the 8 wouldn't zip up my full bust. The 10 was perfectly comfortable and the design of the dress did not make it look too big on my waist. Overall, the dress was comfortable, feminine and perfect for a summer wedding.

Not as expected at all, based on reviews. First time I could not wear my RTR dress. Bummed.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
Not fit for any girl with a chest of any size. Cups were irregularly placed right in the middle close to one another as can be. Padding that was in there was actually sewn in without being removable. Color was more like mustard. Material was pretty light but wrinkled very easily. Draping was indeed quite pretty. I rented 4R and 2L and neither fit at all.

This was my 1st RTR experience & I LOVED it! I was really hesitant at first because I was scared the quality was going to be bad. I didn't want a dress that look used & abused BUT it was in great condition! Looked amazing! I got a 4 long to make sure it wasn't going to be too short. Im 5'4 but I like to wear big heels however I would have been better off with 4 reg just because the long was a little too much even with 5 in heels. Other than that, I LOVED it! Great fit, super comf & so classy. Simple & elegant! I loved the color, I think it photographs really well. Customer service was awesome, I couldn't have asked for a better experience! Thank you RTR :) im using you again for next weekend already!

The perfect dress for a summer wedding

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This dress make an impact and was beautiful and perfect for an outdoor summer wedding. It got a million compliments and looked great in photos. I got the 4 and 6, both fit, but I went with the 4 for the length. However, I would probably have gone with the 6 had I known how uncomfortable the bodice beca,e throughout the day/night. As others mention, there is a built in bra/ zip bodice which is nice and gives it structure, but is so uncomfortable! There was also a piece of boning in the front center of the dress that was popping out all night and drove me absolutely crazy. Still, I loved the dress and recommend it if you are us for the complications.

Tried to adjust the bra padding because it was jumbled up in a ball but I was not able to as there's no way to take out padding. Had to wear it this way which was uncomfortable. The dress that was sent had the plastic bones popping out of the dress pinching your chest/stomach area.

I usually wear a 4 but the 2 fit much better. The dress has a inner bustier that allows the dress to fit perfectly. Towards the end of the night, I unzipped the bustier and simply zipped the dress over it - no one could tell a difference. The length is just right too! I would buy this dress if I could!

I had rented for my college reunion in the heat! I decided not to wear, returned. The color didn't look right on my skin (fair skin). The greenish-yellow wasn't as bright as some of the pictures and the flowing fabric just didn't look right on me. The bodice was nicely made but I didn't care for the hem of the dress or the length. It did fit to size and was light-weight.

Unexpected and beautiful color!

Size worn: 6R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
When I first opened the box I was shocked and not too happy with the color. People have described the dress as being "mustard" but I think it also has some lime in it too. I was afraid it was going to make me look sick, but that was not even close to the truth. The color worked with my slightly olive complexion, make me look tanner, and photographed beautifully. I ended up wearing the size 6... 4 fit everywhere but the bust, and the 6 was a teeny bit too big in the bust (I'm a 34DD) and big everywhere else. Since the boning in the dress was VERY uncomfortable I wore a slip with a built in strapless bra which solved the issue with the boning and the bust being too big. The inner corset had odd cups and literally sat on top of my chest, but you couldn't even tell. The corset was nice because even though the dress was a little big, it help keep it up and I didn't have to bother with pulling up my dress at all. I wore 5 in heels and the back of the dress dragged a little in the back, but it wasn't a problem. I wore the Alexis Bittar Lucite Talon Drop earrings which really completed the look.

Wore it to a summer wedding and everyone loved it. Didn't need to wear a bra but didn't bother with the corset as it was painful/tricky. I'm small on top so foregoing the corset was not a big deal. The long back was slightly tricky while dancing as it got stuck on my heels but the Reg would have been too short (I'm 5 ft 8).

Loved everything about this dress. Fun, unexpected color that really stood out amongst a sea of black. I especially loved that, despite it appearing very flowy, it was very structured within. This dress has a full boned corseted bodice within that allowed me to go without a bra, despite being a D cup. I wish I could purchase this dress...

This dress fell gorgeous on the body! I'm 5'6" (typically a size 2, and opted for the 2L & 4R (since the 4L was unavailable). I went for the 4R the night of the wedding, since the girls were rather squished in the size 2, and I have an appetite :) The dress surprisingly had boning in it., which helped it keep it's structure. Would definitely rent again, was comfortable as well!

The internal corset was not true to size and the boning was sticking out and poking me all night. There was also very awkward padding that was folded badly and couldn't be unfolded to lay flat. Lovely dress, but all I could think about was taking a pair of scissors to it and cutting out the corset. I couldn't wait to get out of the dress :(

Has built in bra, no need to wear a bra with this. The build in at the bust can be tight but will keep you in all night and you won't need to keep pulling the dress up. Came a little wrinkled so make sure to take an iron to it. Color is also chartreuse but I loved it! Great for a summer wedding!! Incredibly comfortable and breathable!

I wore this to an army ball. The only reason I didn't give five stars is because the dress I ended up wearing (the 6) had some tiny runs in the fabric at the front if the bust. This was negligible though as I wore it with chunky jewelry and it wasn't noticeable in photos. The shelf bra was perfect for my size and not having to worry about a strapless bra was a huge plus. This dress is a beautiful light flowy silky fabric and was very comfortable.

Size worn: 6L
Overall fit: True to Size

I was surprised by the length of this dress, I am 6'1" with heels and it hit the floor - very exciting! I ordered a 6L because the 4L was not in stock and it was a little big on top but it wasn't too bad when worn with a strapless bra. The built in corset was great and helped keep the dress in place despite the looseness. I read the reviews prior to ordering and was expecting a mustard yellow, I would say the color was a bright yellow with celadon undertones - I was pleased with the change. The 6L dress had a couple snags in the back of the dress but they were not very noticeable. I felt very stylish and elegant in this dress.

Overall, I loved the dress because the color was so different. The draping was really different as well. It took a little confidence to wear as the drapes didn't sit exactly where I wanted them too but I loved it anyhow. The size 6 and 8 were very similar and I actually couldn't tell which was which because there was no size on the tags. They also seemed a little stretched out around the bust.

This dress fit beautifully and was stunning on. I had to go a size large due to my larger bust size. Even though there is a built in bra I was able to wear it without it looking awkward. This dress is a show stopper. I wasn't able to wear it as I had to miss the wedding but would highly recommend this dress. I may order again!
