Great for Summer wedding
I wore this for a summer wedding, and it was perfect. I actually had it as my back up dress, and now I am so glad it didn't work out. It was a fun dress. The straps have little holders for your bra strap; plus there are pockets! It is one of my favorite dresses I have rented, and will probably rent it again!

Super cute!
This is a super cute dress, fit comfortably and would have been a hit if I wore it, but I ordered it as a back up and ended up going with the initial dress, which had more of a wow-factor.

In LOVE with this dress!
I wore this dress for my Master's graduation ceremony, and FELL IN LOVE! It is so beautiful, fits perfectly, and the back is adorable. Highly recommend! Would look best with a nice statement necklace and heels.

This color was great for spring
I wore this to sing in a friend's wedding. The ceremony was held in a Catholic church, so I wanted to wear something more conservative. This dress is a gorgeous color and is a very classic fit. Unfortunately I don't have a picture of the back, but got lots of compliments on it with the double straps and bow; so cute! If you are more petite, I would definitely size down. I wore a 0 in this dress, as the 2 was a little baggy around the armpits and seemed to sit too low on my waist.

Beautiful color and easy fit
Love this dress for a late summer wedding. The fit is easy, if not a little generous, and the back detail is so cute! I wore it with a strapless bra and nude heels with a sparkly statement necklace.

Perfect dress for a wedding!
The fabric was heavy so it was a little warm in the North Carolina summer, but this dress is amazing! It's the perfect length--short enough to be cute and long enough to be ladylike at a good old southern wedding. Will definitely rent again!

Good dress for any event!
This dress was very comfortable. The back was really cute! I also really liked the color. I went to an outdoor wedding in June and paired it with a white cardigan for night and I was able to be comfortable all night! It was a great color and was cute!

I felt like someone from the 1960s. The dress is a lot of fun.
The dress is a nice bright mint color. It looks great with white, tan/camel and gold. I would suggest staying away from black accents. The pockets are nice. The dress I rented had a broken clasp (above the zipper), but still stayed up. It also had a few small stain dots by the left arm/chest that are not noticeable. However, there are some stains on the back bottom right that appear to be from the same incident (looks like wine).

Love the bow in the back!
Little tight, so I went with the bigger size just for comfort. Probably could have gotten away with the size I normally wear, but I wanted to be comfortable dancing during the wedding! So many compliments. Awesome color, love the pockets!

Classic look. Comfortable. Great fit. I felt like a million bucks.
Fit was great. I'm short and the dress hit perfectly at the knees. Waist nipped in nicely but still fit comfortably after dinner. No issues while dancing - plus the skirt was fun to spin in. My bra straps did peek out the back a bit, even with the helpful snaps to fasten them to the straps. I probably should have pinned them to the straps. Got compliments that I looked "adorable," "vintage," and "classic." Would definitely rent again.

I rented this dress for my 14 year old daughter's 8th grade graduation.
We looked high and low in the stores for a pastel dress but found the perfect one at RTR. It was modest yet youthful. She is 5'10", 135 lbs. Very tall and slender with no chest to speak of, yet this dress showed off her swimmer's shoulders and back as well as her long legs. It enhanced her in all the appropriate ways and she felt great in it.

Friends wedding with a plethora of good food, friends and music.
The fit of this dress was perfect. It the length was perfect, it wasn't too short but still felt like a young dress. Perfect for a summer wedding. The bow on the back added just enough flare that it wasn't too overwhelming.

Absolutely loved it and it hugged my curves perfectly! Not too tight in the bust or waist area but I dont have a large bust or much of a waist. The zipper worked well and an overall great wear!

Rented for a beach wedding, received so many compliments! The back is the best part! Very comfortable, not too hot, had pockets!!! My only negative is that it was a little longer than I would have liked it. (I am 5'1")

The cutest dress i've ever worn
I contemplated buying this dress & throwing out all my other clothes. I absolutely loved the fabric, it was lined with a satin material so I was comfortable in it all day. The color was very vibrant but still soft on the eyes. The detailing on the back made it very special.

Great fit!
I'm a tall girl and I usually worry about short dresses but this dress was a good length, it fit great! I ended up wearing the smaller of the two sizes but could have gone either way (my bust is on the smaller side so the 0 worked out great) I got lots of compliments on it, really wish I didn't have to send it back! Definitely recommend it for any occasion! I matched the dress with a Kate spade matching statement necklace and earrings also from RTR

RTR's customer service was awesome with this rental!
Most reviews said that this dress ran big so I did order size 8-10. Tried on the 10 and couldn't get it off, the zipper was broken. Called RTR and they overnighted a 12 to me (only size they had) which I'm happy they did, it fit much better in my D/DD chest area. I got so many compliments! Was a little sad that the snap that holds the bra strap up was missing on one side but we just attached the bra strap to the dresses inside layer with a safety pin.

Pockets!
Such a simple dress from the front but the back is so fun! The pockets were amazing! Very comfortable for an outdoor wedding reception. The color was gorgeous and the necklace I rented to go with it could not have been more perfect.

I'm 5'6 and 120lbs and this fit pretty well. I have bigger arms and shoulders so it was a little harder to get into. I like the material. loved the dress, but probably won't rent it again.

3 of us rented this as ushers for a friend's wedding to rave reviews all night!
True to size. My twin and I are tall and thin, and this dress fit our waist perfectly. We were worried at first about our bustier friend, but this dress looks great on all sizes. As you can tell from the back, it's not necessary to wear a strapless bra, and the dress does have ways of securing your bra straps, but they can still peak out a bit. The pockets were a HUGE plus, being in a wedding.

Dress was fabulous! I have never felt so pretty!
Fit was spot on. I ordered a 2 and a 4 as I had recently lost weight and wasn't sure what I was anymore. I have an average bust and my weight distributes pretty evenly. There was definitely room for some more in the top area, and the ribcage area fit just right- but doesn't have any give if you have a wider rib/stomach area, so go a size up if you usually have problems there. I struggled with the zipper a bit but once it was on it was perfect. The color is beautiful and I got so many compliments all night. Such a cute little bow and double strap on the back too!

I loved wearing this dress! The mint green color was very pretty and the bow detail in the back was so cute! The dress was very comfortable, although I couldn't wear a regular bra with it without the straps showing in the back. This has been my favorite rental to date!

Loved the color!
I really loved how this dress fit and the color is beautiful. I received many compliments from guests at the wedding I attended. The only thing is that I wish the straps had the clips to hold a bra strap in place like other Kate Spades I have rented have had. The dress looked to have the clasp, but was missing the small string to attach. Overall it wasn't a huge deal at all! Loved this dress and definitely recommend for a summer event!

Such a perfect dress!!
I absolutely loved this dress. It is a little bit big... I am normally a size 8 in a Kate Spade but recently lost some weight so got an 8 and a 6. I kind of wish I had gotten a 4, but the 6 was alright. I pretty much cannot go back to ever wearing a dress without pockets!

Great fit, super flattering!
I normally wear a size 6 and it fit like a glove. The length was just above the knee. The top was a bit snug so if you have a larger chest, definitely size up as there is no "give" when zipping up the dress. I added a large necklace since the front is so plain. The back is the best part (besides the pockets!). I wore to a summer wedding and the dress fabric wasn't uncomfortably heavy. Overall, awesome rental for a summer event.

Cutesy summer dress
Comfortable and cute. Received this as a backup to my original dress. I normally wear a 6 and they sent me the 8, which fit pretty well. I have a heavy chest (32DDD) and it allowed me to wear a regular bra. Dress even has little claps to hold your bra strap in place at the top of the shoulder area.
