Ordered XS instead of S based on other reviews and it fit perfectly. Very comfortable and length was good (usually everything is WAY too short on my long legs). I was not expecting the fabric to be as shiny... the dress is cute but I wasn't in love. Chose another dress for my event and just wore this out to dinner.

First, it took me 15 minutes to figure out how to get the dress on (and I'm college educated). When I got it on it looked straight up hilarious. It looked like I was graduating from Barbie school, and that was my gown. I only needed a cap. It's not a flattering dress, and even with heels the dress looked frumpy.

I rented this dress for an event, and I have to say, I was VERY disappointed. I am 5'4 and ordered the XS thinking that it should work, and it was still extremely large. The sleeves went well below my hands, and the length was way below my knees. Basically, it looked like I was wearing a tent. I had my friend try on the XS who is 5'8, and it still came to around her knees and looked too large. I wasn't able to send the dress back in time to get a refund, so this ended up being a huge waste of money. Love RTR, but I don't think that this picture is a fair representation of the dress.

I loved this dress. I wore it to a "Pretty in Pink" fundraiser and felt like a million. I would size down when ordering. I don't believe I have ever had so many people stop me and compliment me as much as I did that night.

VERY cute and stylish dress, but kind of swallowed me and didn't accentuate my figure. Still wore it out though (two nights in a row) and received a ton of compliments!! Runs very large - Order 1 - 2 sizes down.

I was able to feel beautiful and chic at 8 months pregnant and 40 pounds heavier than normal!
I LOVE this dress! I rented and wore it for my maternity pictures and a baby shower. I was about 8 months along when I wore this and have put on about 40 pounds. I read all the reviews and saw that they were pretty split between running true to size and large so I went with XS what I normally would wear before being pregnant and a S. I wore the XS because of length but both worked fit wise. The sheath underneath is stretchy therefore allowing many sizes to fit underneath. I wore both styles as the model does and then with the sleeve gathered and a belt. I had so many compliments and would recommend this dress to any size or shape!

Thank you for the pictures! I'm currently searching for a fabulous dress for my baby shower and I'm skeptical that some of the "bump friendly" dresses are indeed bump friendly. If I have to sit around with everyone staring at me at 8 months pregnant...I might as well wear a fabulous dress, right?!

Runs big, fun for a party!
I wore the small and typically am more of a Medium (dress size 6). It was a little longer on me than in the photo, but definitely a fun option for a bar night or party. Doesn't wrinkle easy too so that's great.

I did get GOBS of compliments on this dress. I think it looks goddess-y. And obvi it's the style; I felt sexy in it but saw the pictures and was frightened.
Pros: Super comfy. Great color. Got great compliments. Cons: No shape. I was super fit for the wedding/rehearsal dinner I wore this to, but actually looked heavy (I thought) in the pics. The fabric is also strangely shiny - almost like a dance leotard fabric.

I got some nice compliments that night.
Its a nice dress that most certainly looks much larger if not on a very tall person. Very comfortable and goddess like. I was happy with it! Great if you want to show off your legs (or calves only for short women :-)) or if you want to hide some imperfections :-)).

The dress is very flowy and big but I loved the color. It definitely was comfortable and an attention grabber. I didn't feel like I was exposing too much.

This was like a pink bed sheet
No sheen on this dress at all. Just heavy heavy knit tons of fabric and it runs HUGE I can not imagine who would wear larger than an XS. It'l like a leisure suit bed sheet. Horrible dress.

Loved it!
The color of this dress was so beautiful! The fabric was heavier than I expected but it felt expensive and substantial. Definitely runs a little large--I wore the medium and it was even a little big. I wore this to a Broadway play in NYC with leopard print pumps. It was amazing.

Great Color, Runs Large
This dress is much longer than it appears in the pictures. I ordered a medium and it came down past my knees (I'm 5'5"). I would definitely recommend sizing down quite a bit. I ended up going with another dress because this one was so incredibly long and large. The fabric and color were pretty though!

I rented this for a breast cancer pink party and it was sleek, sexy, and comfortable!
I would have preferred the xs, but it wasn't available. I opted to wear the sleeve up, which gave a peek to the sheath underneath. Lovely dress. VERY pink! Very fun!

No Stress from shopping!!!!!
I loved that they sent 2 sizes. I thought I was going to be a XS and needed a S because the lil pocket of love that was hanging out at the dress near my arm pit with the xs. One cool thing about this dress is the sleeve. You can roll it up or have it hang. I arrived one way and half way through the night I switched it up-lol people noticed! I got 2 free garment bags, THE EASIEST RETURN EVER!~I will definitely rent again very soon! My friend and I felt and looked like the best dressed at this event!

I didn't wear it.
I didn't wear this dress. It wasn't very flattering, probably because I was 7 or 8 months pregnant. I had previously rented the light pink version of the dress and LOVED it, though. That dress had a decorative gold clasp on the shoulder, and I think it looks better with the clasp.

Feeling glam and comfortable is possible!
This dress was comfortable, fun and so glamorous. I wore this for a fashion event and received many compliments throughout the night. It was a lot of material so was a bit on the large/long side but still worked. Paired with nude heels and clutch. Would definitely recommend!

Very comfortable , great color, versatile, and sexy.
This dress as longer than I expected on me. I am just over 5 feet. However it was a great dress for a concert. I wore the sleeve up and down during the concert and danced all night long. I also had two women following me to my seat just to feel the dress. They said it just looked very comfortable, from a distance, and they wanted to feel it. LOL

Runs large- wore the small & still felt a bit like a poncho as the material is a bit heavy.. However- got several compliments, and was definately an attention getter. Felt like a star!

Storm Pax kept my dress, but RTR's customer service is the best!
I am 7 months pregnant and got this dress for Valentine's. Didn't arrive, but RTR sent me a warning email (good call, as I was crazy before I was pregnant and the hormones helped nothing). Dress never came, but Thalia from customer service rerouted the package so I didn't have to deal with it, refunded me fully, and gave me $250 off my next rental! I already got a fabulous outfit to wear to my best friend's wedding (more than a teacher like me could afford, but priceless to look amazing at 8 months pregnant as a former beauty queen at her pageant sister's wedding). See you in March!

Runs large and long.. Beautiful dress but you have to be tall!
I rented this dress to wear to my baby shower. I am 34 weeks pregnant. I had read the other reviews and I originally wanted the medium but it was not available so I ordered the large. I thought since my belly was big the large would not be a problem. However, it was big around the neckline and the dress runs very long and . I'm not that tall but the dress was right above my calves. We had to postpone my baby shower and so I did not wear the dress, but I would not have worn it either way because it was not flattering for my body type.

It was amazing to find a dress and have it delivered so quickly for my birthday weekend!
The dress is extremely cute, but the material is heavy. I ended up changing b/c I was uncomfortable.

I was crushed when they only had this dress in S (I thought I needed M). Imagine my surprise when the S fit LIKE A GLOVE! Love this dress! Hid my tummy well (not pregnant, just not skinny). I got so many compliments. Fit the night perfectly.

I received this dress and it looked awful. I usually wear a large and even the medium felt big. I guess I should have realized that a poncho dress is really going to look like a big poncho. I'm 5'5" and it came down to my knees. The staff was very nice and after I called they gave me a refund. I would definitely use the website again just not this dress.

6 months pregnant and this did the trick
i ordered the med. and lrg based on reviews saying it ran large. the med would have worked, but i was more comfortable in the lrg. the sleeve has a clasp so that you can wear it up... much more flattering! the color was true to the picture, and it was very comfortable. i don't know if i would have rented this style if i weren't pregnant, but it was a very pretty dress and i recieved compliments all night.

Although this dress is adorable in style and color..it is a lot of fabric! I think it would look best on someone with long legs..to really pull the look off well! Also, under the full arm, it is a straight sheath type dress underneath...and it shows everything...so you need to have a rock'n body when your arm goes up!

LOVED THIS DRESS!!! Wore it for a dinner one night on our cruise. Received SO MANY compliments! It is a beautiful dress that is very forgiving on those belly pooches. :) Felt sexy all night. Will rent again...
LOVED this dress! So much so that I searched all over online to purchase one. Ran very true to size. Color was beautiful and flattered my tan. Wore for a semi formal event on a Bahamas cruise and received a million compliments. One group of ladies recognized it from SATC 2 and dubbed me SJP for the rest of the trip! :). Said I wore it better... Now that's a HUGE compliment! This dress will not disappoint!
