Beautiful baby blue!

This dress was perfect for easter sunday! The color, design and how dainty I felt with the lace flower pattern were all soooo pretty! Got so many compliments! It's a little deep in the v-neck so I had to pull in the strap a bit and used some pins which worked. There's enough room in the waist for eating as well! The length was perfect for me! Will definitely rent it again in a baby boy shower as it is just so pretty for occasions like that! Pic doesn't do justice, better worn in person! Love it!!

Hi! I am interested in renting this dress for a spring wedding. Would you say the material is stretchy in the stomach and bum regions? Or should I order a size up? Also, is it a lightweight material?
LauraApril 7, 2018
Hi Shelby, I just got the dress in size 10 and it fit but was snug on the bottom black horizontal. I wouldn’t say it has much stretch but I have a booty and belly and it fit well over those areas. Just the one black line would benefit from a size up for me. I only have th3 one size so I don’t know if it gets too much fabric when sizing up. The lace is sturdy and very pretty in person. When I wear this weekend I’ll post a better review with photos.

It is beautiful!

I chose to wear a different dress for the event but this dress was a solid runner up. The color is unique and lovely. The details stunning (my dress still had the tag on it, so absolutely no wear to the lace). I'd say the bottom black horizantal was a bit tight, but I was still able to zip it up. The breast area was a bit baggy on my (I'm a 34B) but I think it could be fixed without issue. Also the black mesh that goes in between your breasts does show your skin - so if you wore a black strapless bra, it would show that part. I don't think this is a deal breaker at all - even a nude strapless would look great but if you are more modest, maybe not the best for you. The length was ALMOST too long - hit lower calf - I'm so sorry I didn't take a photo of it on but with heels, I thought it's so pretty.

Sexy without being too revealing

Beautiful dress that both my fiancé and I loved. If you have a short torso, you may find there is extra space around the waist. It did run large for me, so I'd recommend getting your size and one size down. It hugs your curves in all the right places. Seriously thinking about adding this to my permanent collection!

Comfortable, fun, flirty dress.

I'm petite, pear-shaped. Got the 4R and 6R. Wore the 4R with spanx. Straps were long, but was able to pin it in the back, since my hair was down. Since I'm petite, the length worked out. The dress is supposed to be tea-length, but on a petite gal like me, it was a perfect maxi length with heels (not dragging on the floor and no need to hem with invisible tape).

An absolute hit!

I wore this to a school dinner and received many compliments, it is a beautiful dress with lots of detail. I definitely had to size up to be comfortable, but length was perfect on me. As I've come to find out, most designer dress zippers are a nightmare (this one is no different) so make sure you have one (or two) people zip you up.

Gorgeous dress for a spring bridal shower

Wore to a bridal shower. Fitted on top and looser at hips and below. A bit heavy. Fell to my ankles (I'm 5'2"). I did not need to wear a bra. I loved this dress and felt amazing. Both the size 4 and size 6 did have a smell to them, they arrived in sealed bags and one had the tag still on, so I assumed this was due to being new.

Loved the dress. I felt it ran a little large but not enough for me not to wear the dress. Received lots of compliments.

I appreciate this dress, but didn't like it for me.

So the design is really gorgeous as a fashion drawing/ theory. But in execution, the bodice didn't have enough "hug" or structure, and the non-stretchy pale blue fabric puckered between the black bands, so I didn't like it. It was also a little to full-coverage bra (frumpasaurus) merts little bo peep. Not me!

Beautiful I loved it! Zipper is hard to do up and down.... even off the hanger. But wow what a beautiful dress. I liked that I didn't need to wear a bra with it.

Beautiful but runs big

The dress is made of nice material, beautiful color, but I believe it runs big. I have a slightly smaller rib cage and the top was just not flattering, and the bottom portion of the dress was spacious too. I'd make sure to get your normal size and a size down.

Did not end up wearing for event.

Love the style and color of this dress. I didn't end up wearing because I liked another dress better for the occasion I rented it for, but it's gorgeous. Probably better suited for woman taller than me as the midi length hit a little longer than I'd like but I would love to try to make this dress work for me.

I wore this to a wedding and received many compliments. It's a little different than the typical wedding guest dress, very spring, comfortable post maternity as well.

Felt amazing in this dress!

Loved the color and details of this dress! I received many compliments. Beware that the dress is a bit heavy. The dress ran on the bigger side- would have been more flattering with a more fitted bodice. Wear this with a strapless bra.

Love the color and fabric print!

I love this classic dress by Jill Jill Stuart! Running true to size with no stretch, I recommend wearing your true size for your primary size and sizing up for the back-up. This style is fitted throughout the midsection and fitted at the hips. It works for all cup sizes. You are able to wear a standard bra with this dress, so you should wear a strapless bra. At 5'3, the length hit tea length on me.

Wonderful dress!!

I love this dress! The lace is stunning! I received many compliments. The only negative I would have is that the top fits kind of boxy. I just feel like it could have been a tad sexier. It would definitely work perfectly for a larger bust. Otherwise this dress is a win!

Beautiful dress but not for me

Beautiful dress but not for me. On me the chest was big and the waist is tight. I could have gotten away with it but overall wasn't very flattering on my body type. Also long.

Beautiful dress

I liked this dress, but I loved the pictures on rtr. It wasn't as impressive in person. I had a couple of fit issues. The bodice was a little too long for my frame and a little loose. The bottom fit well. Overall, it didn't have the wow factor I look for in an event dress.

Not my favorite

This dress is beautifully made. I ordered an 8 and probably should have gotten a 6. I felt somewhat frumpy in it...it hit mid calf which is not flattering for most women. Wound up wearing another dress.

So much fun to twirl!!

I wore this dress to a rehearsal dinner and will definitely be renting again. So many compliments, such a beautifully made dress. I'm only moderately busty and thought the top was a bit tight. The dress has very little give, so I'd size up for your backup. I'm 5'9" exactly and this dress hit my shins right where the model shot shows. I can't imagine it's as flattering for shorter ladies, but for us tall girls, it's a showstopper. RENT NOW!

Beautiful Dress!

I loved this dress and received many compliments on it! I thought it ran a little in the larger side and looser in the bust, which is usually the opposite for me. I'm 5'5" and the hem hit me a little above the ankle, but the length seemed fine and it worked for me. The color is a very pretty blue!

Great dress for tall girls!

I wore this dress to a summer wedding and was really happy with it. I am just about 5'11 and the dress hit me at my mid calves. I do not recommend this dress for someone with a large chest. My only con was the straps were slightly big and would fall down, plus the zipper was extremely difficult to zip.

Blue dream

I had tried the size 2 and it was very tight on the top. The size 4 was perfect on the top but a little loose on my waist. It's ok, it gave me room to eat and dance. The fabric is heavy and the lace details are magnificent. #royalty

Unique and beautiful but huge in the chest

This dress was perfect for a summer wedding and I felt great in it. I just wish i had a bigger chest to fill out the disproportionately large chest area. Or that the straps were adjustable. I made it work though and just brought a pashmina to cover up when I was sitting down and the chest area gapped the most. Length was perfect, color was beautiful and it generally fit fine everywhere else.

Tons of compliments!

Loved the silk slip and flowered lace overlay of this dress! Definitely great quality. The top section hits at the natural waste before skating the rest of the body. Not a wide flare, but not too form fitting. My belly is my problem area, and this was just a-line enough to not make me self conscious. True to size. The only down side is that the small spaghetti straps are not adjustable, so they were slipping all night.

This dress was perfection

I absolutely adored this dress. It was perfect for a Vineyard Wedding. The skirt allowed for plenty of dance room. I felt secure in the top, which is important with a larger chest. The only negative is I have a slightly short torso so the midriff would fold over often and the straps were a little loose. This is a common problem I face so it didn't bother me very much. I am short, so the skirt almost went to my ankles, but I thought it looked great!

Cons: straps do not want to stay up! Wish it hid my belly a little better Pro: I don't have boobs but it still works. The quality of the lace is so nice. The color is pretty was nervous it would wash me out but it was alright :)

Made me look thick

Did not wear because the banding at the waistline had the affect of making me look think. Also I thought the dress seemed large overall.
