Beautiful Color and Print!

I wore this for my bachelorette party in Vegas! Everyone kept ranting and raving about the color and print. It fit great too especially since I am larger in the chest!

beautiful color / pattern

Runs slightly large (I usually wear a 2). The flutter sleeve may be a bit overwhelming if you're short. Dress had a few pulls / threads. Overall a beautiful color and unique dress.

I got so many compliments on this dress--even from the bride herself! So comfy and unique! Love it

It was even easy to dance in! The color is gorgeous and the fit would flatter any body. I'm 5'3" and usually wear a 4 but the 2 hugged my curves a bit more; I preferred the 2.

Beautiful fabric, but runs too large

I typically wear a size 0 or 2. For this event I rented both of those sizes but it was too large around the hips! Was very excited to wear this dress but had to go to my alternate dress.

I absolutely loved this turquoise color in this dress. The dress hung loosely while not being too large. I danced the night away and didn't need to worry about anything in this dress.

The color of this dress is amaaazing! It fits more like a shift dress so I ended up belting it.

I rented this dress for a bachelorette weekend in Las Vegas. The color of this dress is amaaazing! It fits more like a shift dress though, so I ended up belting it with a skinny belt.

Perfect Summer Dress!

This dress was perfect! I changed into flats later in the night and it still looked fine. I was comfortable and still looked good! I am thinking of getting this dress again for a wedding this summer. I love it!

Friends asking if they could borrow the dress all night.

I rented this dress for a wedding I attended last night and received several compliments. The top was a little big so if your small chested that's something to consider. The dress was very narrow through the hips and wasn't baggy so I didn't mind a little extra fabric at the top. Overall LOVED this dress and felt SASSY all night.

CamiApril 22, 2012
This dress looks so great on you, did it hit you mid thigh, or more at the knee? Also, this sounds crazy but you look exaclty like my old drill team captain, and her name was Emily, werid!

beautiful pattern and material. RUNS LARGE

I rented this for an outdoor Lake Michigan Labor Day Wedding. The size zero was too wide and the shoulder was too big which made the dress hang low. I thought I could pin it and decided to try and wear it, but it did not work out. I was really excited because the color and fabric is just like the picture and I thought it would have made for a perfect semi casual beach dress.

Way too big!

Although this dress is fun and flirty it was too big! I'm typically a size small in everything and so I thought the 2 would be fine, however the mid section of the dress was just too big. When I walked the dress would bunch up causing my mid section to look like a had a baby bump. I opted not to wear the dress to the wedding as it did not help my body shape at all!

Edgy and fabulous

I usually fall somewhere between a size 10 & 12, the 12 just barely fit. It was too short for my taste. The top fit my great the bottom was a little snug and there is no stretch in teh fabric. When I modeled it for my husband, his words were "you look hot". So of course I wore it. I got plenty of compliments. The pattern and cut are edge but the fabric is very delicate. so delicate that it had a few pulls and a tiny stain but the pattern camouflaged both.

This dress is so elegant and fashionable. You feel like you are walking the red carpet! It can run a bit smaller especially in the hip area, so I had to wear size 4 (I ordered a size 2 & 4). I had an issue with the zipper, it kept getting caught on the material of the dress. I informed RTR and they were EXTREMELY helpful. They even offered to send me another dress. I'm share my experience because at times we can be somewhat skeptical about ordering online, but honestly RTR really stands behind their service. They are helpful and willing to please the customer. I was able to wear the dress and it was an utmost hit. Tons of complements from everyone! Loved It!!!!

Beautiful colors

I loved this dress but the sizing was a little awkward. For some reason the inner shell -- which is a very pretty dark teal-- hung down lower than the dress in the back in the 8, but not in the 10 (I don't have the biggest hips, either). But the 10 was far too big and shapeless on me. I wore the smaller size, hoped for the best. My husband said it looked like it was supposed to be that way and I got lots of positive compliments from total strangers.

Style! Style! Style! Day or Night!

I LOVE THIS DRESS! I wore this to an outdoor wine country wedding on a hot fall day in California. While others were sweltering in their designer frocks I was cool and comfortable in this gorgeous dress. I lost count of how many people asked me where I got it. I only added the Kenneth Jay Lane Deep Blue Drop earrings for a little sparkle because the dress is a knock out. This dress is perfect when your event takes you from daytime to late at night. I will rent this one again!

So cute, but way too small for me

I loved everything about this dress (on the model). It just didn't work for me. Too small for my body. Too short. I was hoping it would be only an ince or two from the top of my knee but this was definitely mid thigh. I hated not being able to use it.

Very pretty sexy dress. But it was a little too tight around my hips. If I we just a couple inches smaller in my hips (rear) I would have loved to have worn it.

Beautiful color and style, unfortunately WAY TOO SHORT.

I really liked this dress and it fit fine but I'm 5'9" and both the 10 and 12 were WAY too short for me to wear to the wedding. That being said, if you're more petite it would be a great dress!

Hot little number!

Rented for a red carpet movie premeir as a back up, but it was a little bit too short and informal. !I am tall and this hit well above mid thigh on me, so sitting around is not really an option in this one!! I wish I had somewhere to wear it though because it fit fabulously and I felt super sexy in it. Think weekend in Vegas or birthday dress paired with sky high heels, rather than formal event and you cant go wrong!!

Not a dress for athletic types

Nice dress, if you are tiny and busty. I however, I have a bubble butt and no boobs with power arms and legs, this dress did not flatter me at all. It rode up on my booty and I had to keep pulling down the dress every time I lifted an arm. The dresses I rented were sizes 6 and 8 and both were tight on the booty and baggy every where else. I was also disappointed about the damage on both dresses on the top layer. Looks like the chiffon caught onto something and damaged the fabric weave. Wasn't horrible, but I wasn't about to make it worse. The final blow was when my boyfriend told me it looked like a cheap rave dress from the mall. I wore my back up which worked out fine. Thank goodness.

Beautiful! Sheek! Lot of compliments and looked great in photos!

I had two sizes delivered and ended up wearing the larger size because of the snug fit under the armpit. I received lots of compliments on the dress and can't wait to order my next dress for my next event!

Gorgeous Color, Comfy to Wear

I accessorized this dress with red shoes and I have never gotten so many compliments in one night! I recommended RTR to all the ladies at the event, most had never heard of it. This was a very easy dress to wear, silk material perfect for South FL heat and humidity. It fit true to size for me, the 8 was a little snug around the hips, the 10 was perfect. The bracelets were also from RTR and was very sparkly, not too noisy or heavy.

The awesome sleeve.

The dress is beautiful, and fit very well. I definitely enjoyed wearing it!! The dress was somewhat short (perfect length) on me, so I cannot imagine that it would work well for a tall person. The only problems I had were RTR related... first, they sent me two 4s instead of my backup size, but that ended up working out OK. Secondly, both of the dresses had pulls in the fabric. This one might be unavoidable as the fabric is very delicate (which is what makes the sleeve work so well). Despite my issues, I'm glad I got to rent this dress!

ClareMay 8, 2012
I was just wondering if this dress was somewhat form fitted? I am about the same size as you and my only concern is it would look blocky, not form fitting, and maybe make me look bigger than I normally am. Looking to rent for an upcoming wedding. Thanks so much
RTRMay 8, 2012
Hi Clare, this style is a straight silhouette. It's only billowy on the arm/shoulder!
LaurenMay 8, 2012
Just saw this, agree with RTR that it is not blocky at all. It fit well on all my curves, but was not tight. Just right!

RENT THIS DRESS!

I rented this dress for my bachelorette party last night, and I absolutely LOVE it. It fit so much better than I expected, I'm in between an 8 and a 10 so I rented both sizes, and was so happy to see that the 8 fit PERFECTLY. It wasn't tight at all and was loose enough to hide my "belly" but fitted enough to show my figure. I felt beautiful all night and didn't want to take it off. I was surprised though that the darker color in the dress wasn't black, it was a navy blue. Still a gorgeous dress and I am so happy I rented it!

Gorgeous, comfortable dress. Great night out with some of my favorite ladies.

I wore this dress to a bachelorette party in Old Town Alexandria. It was comfortable and beautiful for dinner and bar-hopping with a bunch of girlfriends. I was a little dissappointed when I received the dress. As another reviewer mentioned, I am guessing due to improper dry-cleaning, the lining was hanging out the bottom of the dress. This was a unacceptable to me, as I do not feel I should have to "rig" a designer dress that I am renting, and I nearly returned the dress without wearing it. I really had my heart set on wearing it and on a hope and a prayer, I ironed it with a very low setting. This relaxed the fibers and returned the outer sheath to its original length. I received numerous compliments. The dress is stunning and I would highly recommend renting it. It can be either dressed up or down. I paired it with gold wedges and a gold mini-cluth to dress it down a little for the evening. The only reason I did not give this dress 5 stars was because of the way the dress arrived with the lining hanging out.

I was told by the bride how gorgeous I looked...it should've been the other way around:)

I recently dropped almost 40lbs and knew I wanted something that would show off my new shape, as well as bring out my rediscovered confidence. This dress did just that! Not only did I get a ton of compliments, I also was asked a million times where I got the dress. The length was just right, the sleeve was sexy and elegant, and the dress just flowed with perfection. This is my 2nd RTR rental and I haven't been disappointed yet. I have a bridal shower next weekend and can't wait to get my next rental. My only issue (which was my fault) was that I should've gotten a 4 & a 6. I was completely unaware of my new size and the 6 felt a little big on me (everyone disagreed). Other than that, RTR please keep up the awesome work!

Amazing dress

Amazing dress. Fit perfect, good dress for larger chested women like myself. I'm a 36H and it fit. Was a bit short so I had to wear tights, only reason why I didn't give it 5 stars. Love this dress, would rent again.

Great dress!

My daughter rented this dress for our recent vacation and it was great! It fit her well and was very comfortable for the evening. She got lots of complements on the dress, and it was age appropriate for a 16 year old. Fun and not too bare. She is slightly taller than me, but about same weight. She has narrow hips and broad shoulders and the dress looked fantastic!

Beautiful dress, colors are very flattering.

I rented this dress to wear to my sister's graduation ceremony. It is a beautiful dress and comfortable to wear, but I would not recommend it for someone who was going to do a lot of moving around due to the sheer material and how long the one sleeve is. When I received the dress a previous wearer must have caught the sleeve on something causing it to pull at the seam, which would be easy to do with this type of material. I called RTR and they were great as always. It was not noticable when I was wearing it and I was careful not to cause anymore damage, but I would not have been able to be so careful if I was wearing it out dancing. It is a flattering dress and looks great with gold accessories and the Kara Ross blue python earrings.

Love! Love! Love!

This dress was my back up, but I ended up wearing it when my first choice didn't fit. I'm glad it didn't, because this was so pretty and flattering. The sheer fabric is ideal for a hot summer night out. The vibrant colors silhouetted my shape beautifully. I am curvy and have a large bust (34G) making dress shopping somewhat of a nightmare, but this dress was up to the challenge. The fabric has a little bit of give, so it hugged me in all the right places! I would warn that it is shorter than you may think. I'm pretty short (5'2") and this dress hit me about 4 inches below my butt. Silver jewelry looks great with this dress, but gold would work, too. Order it! You won't be disappointed! Especially curvy girls- although it is too short for Spanx.

Hey Erica.....I am 175 and a size 12/14.........where did the dress feel tight on you.....across the breast or hips?? Could you sit w/o showing everything? Thanks for your honesty! Kelley
RTR CustomerAugust 9, 2012
Hi Kelley! This dress is fitted in the bust and hips. We have it in a 12, but do not have the size 14. I would suggest ordering the size 12 and another dress style as your back-up, so you have options!
