Sunshine at a California Wedding!
I loved this dress!! I wore this to a wedding in Southern California and decided to switch up from my usual dark palette. I was scared that the color might not work with my pale skin but this color seems to be universally flattering! The fit was comfortable and not too restricting, I was able to wear a strapless bra underneath and the material is soft and has stretch. I wore the 6 and even though I fit into the 4, it had some BO smell from another user (RTR, please dry clean both!) The 4 fit better in the chest as I'm small up there but the 6 worked for me as well with a padded bra and only gapped when I bent over. Don't be scared to make a bold statement with this fun dress!

Fabulous!!!
Dress was extremely comfortable and easy to move around in. Material was thick enough to hide imperfections! One of my favorite rentals and recommend if you want to stand out!

Pop of a color made me a stand out
This dress really fits like a glove . It was thick material and it was hot so I did sweat outside but nothing too major of a concern. The color is a bright yellow . It was a little long for my preference but I received so many compliments from the minute I stepped into the church . Super comfortable all night and easy to dance in.

Beautiful!!!!!
I wore this dress for a friends wedding and loved it!!! I have a large bust and it fit perfectly. I am short so I do wish it came in a petite because the length would've been perfect! It was a tad long. I received so many compliments on the color and dress all night! And I'm 10 weeks pregnant and it still looked great!!!! Definitely rent this one!

24 weeks pregnant and this stretchy dress was perfect!
I rented this dress for a wedding, being 24 weeks pregnant. The stretchy material was perfect - I got tons of compliments on it. Pre-pregnancy, my average size was 2-4 (probably would have been a 4 - this dress is on the tight side). I wore the 6, but the 8 also fit my baby bump perfectly (just a bit too big in the shoulders for my frame). My only complaint was that because I wanted to wear the straps up on my shoulders, that I had to use safety pins to keep my regular bra strap from showing - or I would have needed a strapless, which I didn't have with me on this trip.

AWESOME dress. Got a ton of compliments. Great color.
I wanted to wear an undergarment with hooks, but you could see the bumps. I had to use a smooth one instead - would have been helpful to know that prior. Other than that - fabulous!

Great dress!
Dress was very well made. fit beautifully and I received so many compliments. Would definitely recommend this dress and website. It was a little long because I'm very short (5'0"). I just put some double sided fabric tape at the bottom and folded it up. Worked out perfectly. I'm 5'0" 115lbs Bust size 32 DD and wore a size 0.

Perfect Summer Dress!
I loved this dress! People called me Princess Belle all night long :)! The fit was great! Very form fitting and great for dancing. For me personally it was a little big in the chest but still wearable. I am exceptionally small in that area so most dresses are large on me in the bust. Loved this dress and would definitely rent again!

Even the bride complimented me!
I absolutely loved this dress and was sad to have to return it! I got so many compliments, the bride even said to me after " if I had a quarter for every time some asked who the girl in the yellow dress was!!". I was hesitant as this was my first RTR experience and I did not think anything would fit me in the chest, (36DDD) but I was pleasantly surprised. The dress itself has a lot of stretch to it. Definitely needed Spanx but the color, ruffle and neckline were just so much fun!

Hot tamale!
You need to rent this dress, it will make you stand out in a good way! It's very comfortable and runs true to size. Easy to dance and move in and no problems with the sleeves or anything falling down. My only complaints are that you are very aware of the boning in the back while dancing and I also wish it would have been a little shorter as I feel that it fell at an awkward length. I spiced it up even more with bright and colorful accessories and I got complimented all night long. Would definitely rent again!

Dress fit well, was a little too big in the midsection, but overall fit great. Off the shoulder was comfortable and the sleeves stayed put.

I wore this dress for my birthday. A few of my girlfriends & I had brunch in Coronado.
I love the color. The style is on trend. The material is nice & has a little give. I did not need to wear any special undergarments under the dress.

Flattering and colorful
I loved this dress. The fit was comfortable and the dress stayed in place. I could wear a regular strapless bra. The style is flattering, and the color is bold and worked well with my complexion. I normally wear a 2 but found that the 0 fit better (the 2 had some areas that were a little baggy while the 0 fit uniformly).

Gorgeous!
Loved this dress - received so many compliments on it! The dress is very form fitting, but the amount of stretch makes it very comfortable. I usually wear an 8, which fit, but I sized up to give myself a little more room. My only issue was finding a pair of underwear that couldn't be seen under the dress - luckily I had something that worked but I noticed even a little bit of lace was obvious give the tightness of the dress and the color, so plan ahead!

Pretty dress but very form fitting!
The color of this dress is great and material is very comfortable. You can wear a strapless bra. The dress is very form fitting and snug so it showed underwear lines which I didn't like. The arm pieces were flexible so I could dance all night. Great dress and the ruffles were a great detail!

The dress fit fantastic! I moved comfortably all through the night. I did a lot of dancing and moving around. It held up and looked perfect the entire event. Seriously thought about purchasing it.

I've never received so many complements on a dress! It was a little snug and does show your stomach no matter what, but the dress gave me so much confidence! Fabric was stretchy, which made it easier to dance. Definitely recommend!

This was my first RTR experience and I loved it !!
I rented this dress for my afternoon bridal shower and kept it on for a wedding I attended later that same evening. I was shocked by how many compliments I received! The top of the dress stays up with little effort and the material is stretchy so I felt free to move around and dance. I usually wear a 4, but looking at some of the pictures posted by others, it seemed like a 2 would fit me. I ordered both and ended up wearing the 2. The 4 fit just fine, but the 2 was a bit more form fitting, so I went with that. Don't hesitate to get this dress. You'll love it !

I truly felt like a modern day Belle!!
Overall, I was completely satisfied with this dress. I was skeptical at first because I am bigger busted and have a heavier midsection. The dress ran true to size and luckily I was able to wear spanx and a strapless bra to keep everything in. I reveieved so many compliments on the color and style of the dress. It was a little longer than I expected but suitable for the occasion. This is my third time using RTR, I love the rental experience!

Perfect!
This dress is perfect for a less formal wedding. Off the shoulder style gives just the right amount of sexy. The color gives just the right amount of attention. Great dress for facing the night away. Fits true to size, I would recommend going down a size for backup. Wore chicken cutlets as my bra and that was perfect! Highly recommend this dress for any occasion!

Lots of compliments. The bust and shoulder straps stayed put with no need to adjust all night.
Did need to pull down the bottom of the dress to adjust after sitting down. Snug fit, which meant there was VPL. Plan accordingly!

Really liked this dress, I wore it for an August wedding. The color is very bright which I liked, and no one at the wedding had on anything similar. A few people I didn't even know came up and complimented me on the dress. I'm more of a pear shape and wore a size up because it was tight on the bottom. It wasn't very forgiving in the stomach but I wore spanx and helped solve that problem. The shoulders stayed put all night. This was a great rental.

Lots of complements. The color was stunning!
Very snug dress and well constructed. Not once did I have to pull up the top the whole night. (even while dancing!) beening so tight, I did use a body suit to help smooth out things, so if you don't like fitted dresses, this won't be for you. The color is bright! Which I loved, but would maybe not look good on everyone so be wary. The yellow is very very yellow. Overall, loved the look and was extremely comfortable.

So many compliments! Absolutely recommend!
This dress was amazing! I wore it for an outdoor wedding in Lake Tahoe and received so many compliments on the color and fit. The dress is very formfitting, but with a flattering cut. It has a little boning to keep it from falling down and stretch for a little room with dinner and dancing. I rented both a size 6 and 8, and wore the 6. I paired it with cobalt blue earrings and shoes for a perfect extra pop and my boyfriend coordinated with a yellow and blue tie. I loved this dress so much that I may actually rent it again for another event!
