It was so incredible easy to do & something I would never buy myself - so felt so special!
I was a little nervous to receive the dress after I read some reviews that the material was pretty worn in. I will say that you have to expect for it to be somewhat, and this type of fabric did make it a little more so than usual, but I felt like it was not noticeable unless you were verrrrrry close to the dress. So I was completely fine with it! Thought it fit great, and it felt so special for my close friend's wedding! People asked me where I got it all night....

Weird sizing - too small!
I'm usually an 8, but this 8 wouldn't even zip! It was clearly strange, as another Lela Rose dress in a 10 was enormous. Not sure what was going on, but the dress was pretty in person.

Wedding in Arizona
This dress was perfect for a cool spring night wedding in Scottsdale. The color was great and the belt pattern was really interesting. It fit fine although it was a bit restricting in the arm and the lining kept showing when I sat down. The main problem was the draping seemed to be a little off due to too much wear and tear. The fabric was also very tattered in areas. I still wore it, but wished it was in better condition. Both my size and the back up size were similar in that respect.

The amazing cocktails at Rachel's wedding! That and dancing, dancing, dancing!
I love this dress! I wore it for a wedding and got so many compliments. The color is beautiful and the cut is stunning. I wore it with Green Kendra Scott Danielle earrings which looked great. It would also look great with turquoise jewelry. Five stars!

loved it!
i rented this for a wedding in march and absolutely loved it. the one shoulder does restrict how high you can raise your arms and but it stretch out a bit, by the end of the night it was falling off my shoulder.

Hi! I am thinking about renting this dress for a wedding in June and since you are the person who rented it closest to today's date, I was just wondering.. do you agree with the rest of the comments... was it too worn-out? Looking forward for your advise! :) Thanks!

Hi Beatriz, per the comments on this style we've have since reviewed all units of this dress to ensure that they are in as new condition. We know this dress has been a customer favorite and we want to keep it that way!

Dirty- wornout dress
Both dresses were very dirty and they were not that bright organge anymore. Since they were worned out, they should not be rented anymore. My dress outfit plan for the one of the most important wedding was compeltely ruined.:(

Fall wedding
I wore this dress to a fall wedding and received tons of compliments. Color is beautiful. Only downside is that the one shoulder is very restrictive for dancing. I am a C cup and typically wear an 8 or 10 - wore the 10 as the 8 was too small in the bust. Overall a great experience with RTR.

Do you think the material would make it uncomfortable in the heat?
SD girlJuly 14, 2015

RTR CustomerJuly 15, 2015
We have similar sizing and I would have ordered a Small but only an XS is left. My waist is a 27 and i wear a 4 same weight and height as you. Think the XS is okay?

Beautiful dress. I wore it to a wedding and received lots of compliments. I typically wear a 6/8, but the 10 in this dress fit like a glove. In regards to a previous comment, I will warn that this dress does indeed look a little 'used' to close inspection. The fabric was a bit picked, which can't be surprising considering that it's a delicate silk. Regardless, it's not something that someone else could tell, so it didn't really bother me. The sz. 10 I received was in better shape than the 8. All around, I recommend this dress...it is beautifully constructed, unique and a wonderful bright color.

This dress is a no no. Once upon a time it was a beutiful dress but now is horrible. It has shrink and it looks so work out like something you have put in the loundry hundreds of times. I order size 2 and 4. UGLY.

This dress was outstanding for an equestrian/country wedding this past weekend. The color is really beautiful and the shape is very modern with lots of angled tucks and darts, so it definitely stood out. It says a lot about this dress to have ended up so awesome considering there were some serious issues...I am normally a zero, but ended up taking the two so I could actually sit and eat. Unfortunately, only the zero belt came and the two's shoulder strap had broken off. Emergency? Well, thank god for fashion tape, and some industrious friends! I eventually tucked the shoulder piece into the bustier of the dress and it looked A-OK as a strapless edit. Another drawback was that the fabric was a little frayed (sensitive and perhaps from a lot of dry cleaning) but that does not show unless you get really close up. I looked great in the pictures and got lots of compliments, but I wish the dress had come in better condition.

I rented this dress in a size 8, which is my standard size for Lela Rose. The dress arrived damaged and appeared to have been shrunk by the dry cleaners - it was so tiny, almost child size. If you plan to rent the size 8 make sure it is a different dress than the damaged one. I wish it would have worked because I love this dress.

I'm 5'7"-5'8" and plan on wearing flats. They only have the 4P available do you think it is going to be too short? Thanks for your help.

This dress is BEAUTIFUL. I wore it to my bridal shower and loved it. My only negative, though, is that the shoulder sleeve can be a bit restrictive when extending your arm out or up very far. I am normally a size 4, and it fit, but if my backup size 6 had been available its likely I would have worn that for more room in the ribcage and shoulder. Also, since I was sitting a lot, the extra room would have been nice so I didn't have to worry about the lining popping out of the bottom of the dress. However, since the liner is attached to the hem and orange in color, it wasn't a huge deal. Fun outfit that can be dressed up or down!

Absolutely fabulous dress! I wore this dress to a wedding and received tons of compliments! Definitely a "look at me" dress but in the best possible way. I am consistently a size 8 and a Dcup the 8 fit perfectly. I highly recommend this dress.
