Color was gorgeous... Very unique

Loved the thick luxurious fabric and especially the vibrant color! My husband loved the dress too and I got compliments from girls and guys. I usually wear small and received S and M. I ended up wearing the M because it felt more comfortable. I wish I took more pictures!

Better for a more casual look

I rented this for a cocktail attire wedding on the fancier side and when I saw it in person it just wasn't appropriate for a formal event. I'm 5'6 and found this to be too long on me as well. I didn't wear this dress for the eveng

Loved it!

This dress runs a little big, but I didn't mind because I really liked the material and the look of the dress. I'm 5'2 so it was long on me, but regardless, I received plenty of compliments on the dress.

Spectacular color!!

Very fitted dress. Beautiful color and easy choice because it can be dressed up or down. I wore flats with it and simple jewelry since my cousin's reception was in a barn. It was perfect!

Fun dress, comfy fit, low back

This dress was fun and comfortable and I loved the color. The fit guide recommends a strapless bra, but the back V is far too low for any bra with a back. I solved the issue by adding a sweater.

Great color and flattering fit.

I received compliments everywhere I went. Only con, the website says strapless bra for this dress, but a backless bra is required, as the back is way too low for any other type.

Perfect for St. Patrick's Day!

The overall fit I would say runs big. I'm usually a small but the small was unavailable so I ordered the extra small which fit fine. The material was heavy which was perfect for a chilly spring day in New York City however the back was very low for a work event so I put a cardigan over it. I received a lot of compliments and the Kelly green is beautiful!!

Perfect for a spring outdoor wedding!!

This dress was perfect for the occasion, springtime outdoor wedding. Fit was true to size, perfect length. The arm holes were stretched out and a bit large, but didn't bother me much. Loved the low back on the dress, but had to buy a special bra so it wouldn't show. I received many compliments and felt comfortable all night!!

Wasn't quite right

I chose not to wear this dress due to sizing. I'm typically a size 2 and both the S and XS were too large. The shoulder straps were too large and gaped open. The drop waist did not flatter my body type. Very heavy fabric. Green color was beautiful!

Lots of compliments and the color was great! I stood out for sure!

The material of the dress is what makes it flattering, it's heavy (structured) and so it hangs off and hugs the midsection so that it flares out on the skirt section very beautifully. The length is below the knee (I'm 5'3). This dress fit ok, I will Likely read many more review next time because I ordered a size according to others "like" me and I probably would've been ok with a Medium because it's stretchy material all around. I say this not because it was loose on the body, but the chest, near the armpit had space and could have used a safety pin. I found it hard to wear a bra because the back is V'ed which is very beautiful and I'm mad I didn't get a pic. The tag in the back also comes out a lot so I had people sticking it in for me, if I had the foresight I would've taped it or pinned it down. Overall lots of compliments, color stands out. I wore it to an outdoor evening cocktail reception.

Danced the night away

Loved the color and the back. As a mom of three im not super confident about my stomach. The thick material helped but I still struggled with holding my stomach in all night. I just didn't feel 100% confident without spanx. I tried to put them on but with the low back I couldn't pull them high so it defeated the purpose. Def had to wear a stick-on bra. Or a low back bra would probably work too, if you're bigger busted and need the support. I'm an A-cup so the stick on with front closure works for me. I also would have liked it to be a little shorter but it hit exactly where I expected it to and with heels it's looked great. Flirty and cutesy, just like my hubby likes. ;) I wore my hair side-swept to show off the back. Personally I think this dress would look best on someone who is tall with a long torso. But it worked out fine and I still felt lovely all evening.

Stunning green , gorgeous back, fun for dancing

Very fitted but does run large so you'll need to size down, should have worn the xs. It will fall off shoulders if size is too big. Backless required adhesive bra. Gorgeous, tons of compliments

great color on the dress, very comfortable! perfect for a holiday party!

back is cut low so I had to get a converter strap to wrap the back bra strap around so it would sit low enough to not show - but overall a great dress. I would typically wear a medium and it was a little large, I could have worn it it needed but had the small as aback up which fit perfectly

Very long

I really liked the material of this dress - kind of like a stretchy sweater, so it would be great for a winter event. I just couldn't wear it - the skirt was so long and so full that I looked like a little kid wearing adult clothes. I'm 5'4", so it's not like I'm extremely short and have this problem a lot. Also, it's hard to see in the picture, but the double waist would be unflattering on anyone without a flat stomach... so be careful!

I wore this to a St. Patty's Day function

This dress was the first dress from RTR that I was not 100% satisfied with. It was for a St. Patty's Day function. I wore the small, but it was way too big in the bust area, It was puffing out around the bust and shoulder area, I had to safety pin the back and wear a shaw to keep the safety pinned back from showing. The overall color was spot on, but I was not happy about the fit.

Pretty green dress.

I liked the color and style of dress. It runs a little big. You can't wear a bra with it because of the low back. The dress is divided at the waist and at the hips. It will accentuate any pouch in the middle.

Unusual fit

This dress has a very strange fit. It's heavy and sits awkward on the shoulders. The arm holes were quite large and you could see my bra. Then when I put on my nu-bra, you could see the shape of the nu-bra through the dress. Not really Christmas Eve church service material. The drop waist also highlighted my extra love I keep around my midsection and I like to keep that to myself. I would recommend this dress to my gals with a slender frame that don't need to wear a bra for support.

Too long in torso and overall. Too heavy.

Received this in my first monthly membership shipment so I only received one size. This dress is made of a very heavy fabric. I felt weighed down as soon as I put it on. The size 2 was a bit loose and I should have ordered a 0. I'm noticing that on this site, I need to order a 0 for most things just to be safe. The torso of the this dress is very long and I have a long torso (trust me, the wardrobe peeps at work remind me every time I do a fitting) so for this to have a long torso seems extreme. I am also pretty thin with a pinched in waist and barely B boobies, so maybe if you have a thicker waist and bigger boobs, the torso won't seem as long. The waist hit at my hips and the dress hung below my knees. I rolled the waist up under itself once but I still felt like I was drowning in the oversized, heavy fabric. Reconsider if you are petite.

Pretty, great color, HEAVY, LONG.

It's a pretty dress, great color, I see what Kate Middleton appreciates in this designer. That being said, WOW, is that a heavy material ... I think the dress must weigh over 2 lbs ... and WOW, is it long. It hit midcalf on me, maybe even a little lower than midcalf - I think the dress' own weight pulls it down. I did like it though, sweet conservative dress in a bright and uncommon green.

Liked it didn't like it for my petite size

I loved the color of this dress and the heavy fabric kept me warm. I'm petite and have a large busy so the shoulders had that gap him that happens. It was form fitting. I'm between a 4 and 6 these days so I ended up wearing the medium. I probably should have done the small to see of it resolve he shoulder thin but just thought about that now. Lol! It was about 1/2 under my knee so a titch longer than I would have liked. I don't recommend this dress if you have a pooch as the fitted part goes down to that region. Overall I liked the dress I got a lot of attention though wouldn't rent it again.

Not for petite girls

The color is beautiful. The fabric was heavy and good for a cold fall day in the city. The back is very low so u either have to wear something over the dress or go braless. I am usually a XS but I went with the Small because it was tight in the stomach. Going up a size caused a gap in the arms. The length is too long for short girls.

A tad small

This dress showed every lump and bump in the stomach area. The fabric is a fantastic weight, it was just a touch too small! also the back was cut too low to wear a bra... The perfect color green, sad this did not fit.

Great Color, Flirty, but Doesn't Show in Photos

Wore this dress to go tour a winery and to dine at a new restaurant for our 6th wedding anniversary. My husband LOVED this dress on me, especially because of the color. It was very comfortable, stretched enough to still feel good after I ate a lot. However, not a single picture I took of me in it showed how great this dress really is. I know that is not everything, but it is hard to show it off to others who could not see you in person. I also felt it ran a tad small because it was a full skirt, and being so pear shaped, I usually wear a size 4 or 6/small with full skirted dresses from RTR. I couldn't even zip the zipper half way up on the small. Bustier gals, just keep that in mind!

Classy dress. I wore with a pair of Celine Leopard print heals. Comfortable Many compliments!

This dress is a gorgeous kelly green. Quality fabric. Beautiful Detail. I'm 5'8" 122lbs and usually wear a 4. I had an S and an M sent. I work the M with a stick on strapless bra. Looked great. You can't go wrong with this one.

awkward fit

Loved the color, but awkward cut -- very long torso, but fitted in the waist, so the bodice bunched up and the shoulders slumped over. Unwearable unfortunately.

Super stretchy and thick material.

This dress was very nice! I went with a small and since it was super stretchy, it worked fine. I am usually a 4/6 (6 for most RTR dresses) with an athletic build. The length was nice. It is a thick material and I wore for Christmas Eve mass. Overall, it was great!

Comfortable and flattering!

The best part of this dress is the deep V. I was able to wear it with a regular bra but I had to check it throughout the evening to ensure that it wasn't creeping up. The dress is extremely comfortable. It is form fitting but no where near as tight as the bandage dresses from Herve Leger. The cut and fit of this dress makes it a good rental for most any body type. (Maybe just not for the very petite as it will run long.) I will definitely be renting this again for a bachelorette party in Vegas.

Super slimming. Beautiful color. Hits at knee (I'm 5'9). very comfortable. Shows undergarments so choose your bra wisely or you can go without (the fabric is heavy enough that no one will see anything).

This dress was just OK. In retrospect, I wish I would have worn something else.

The top half of the dress fit like a glove, but maybe not in a good way. So much so, that as a 34C, I couldn't wear an underwire bra, or the wire would show. Looking at the model, I should have known this though. You can see that her rib cage actually protrudes more than her chest in the profile shot. Anyway, I should have caught that the dress would be very glove-like. The back V is pretty deep too, further complicating the bra situation. The color didn't do me any favors either since my skin is pale from a harsh Chicago-winter. Lastly, while I would consider this a summer/spring color, the fabric is definitely more of a thick, winter weight. The one pro: The shape accentuated my waistline.

Perfect dress for an engagement party!

I was co-hosting an engagement party and needed something beautiful that wasn't too flashy and that would allow me to do things like take hot trays out of the oven. This dress more than fit the bill. I got a ton of compliments on it and it was incredibly comfortable. It didn't hurt that my husband spent the whole night telling me how beautiful I looked. I have broad shoulders, but the small still worked well. The back of the dress dips so low that you can't wear a regular bra. This wasn't a problem for me, but curvier women may find that problematic. As another viewer said, the fabric of this dress is very heavy. Perfect for a chilly spring night, but it would be way too hot for summer.

Pretty, but…..

The material was stunning and this style of dress normally works great on me. The trouble I had with the dress was the double waist. It has a band at the waist then another band closer to your hips. I have a small waist and bigger hips and it just did not look right on my body. The quality of the dress was amazing but it did not work for me.

Medium was totally stretched out. Large was perfect

When I tried on the medium, the top was too loose and the bottom went well below my knees (and at 5'6 I'm not exactly short). I was panicked because I assumed the large would be even bigger, but it ended up being perfect.The medium they sent me needs to be retired. The dress is a little heavy so best for a spring/fall event or a very air conditioned room and the skirt has great movement when you're dancing. The color of the dress is beautiful and I received a ton of compliments.
