Is this a true orange, or more of a coral?

Such a beautiful color!!

This dress was the most beautiful color in person!! I love the wrap around the neck. I am usually a 0-2 but rented up to a 4 in this style. I wish there was such thing as a 3 because the 2 was too tight but the four I kept having to pull around the chest and it was slightly too long on me (I am 5'4"). But the fit was very flattering and was form fitting. I feel like the Elizabeth and James style dress I have rented before was a better fit for my petite frame.

Beautiful color

The color of this dress is beautiful in person . I sized up based on the reviews but it was too big and I couldn't wear it. I think it probably fits true to size..

Very flattering!

This dress was very from fitting with just enough stretch in the fabric to make movement easy. Very fun and flirty while still classy.

Beautiful dress! Felt great in it

This dress was great! The color is bright - a hotter coral/pink than I expected, but it was perfect for a spring wedding. It hugs your curves without being scandalous, thanks to the neckline. I sized up significantly after reading the reviews and kind of wish I hadn't - the dress felt a little large in the waist, with plenty of extra fabric in the back (for reference I usually order a 2 and 4, but ordered a 6 and 8, wore the 6, would have probably liked the 4.) On the plus side it was very comfortable. At the end of the day I loved this dress and got lots of compliments on it. Pairs well with nude and gold accessories.

Love this color!

One of my favorite styles I have worn from RTR! I rented this same dress for another wedding in the fall but in a deep red color. This was perfect for a spring wedding. It's very fitted but not constricting. I usually wear a 4 but I definitely needed the 6 - it fit perfectly :)

Great color!

I loved this dress! It fit beautifully, my husband even suggested I buy the dress. The color was stunning in person. I've worn a couple of Likely dresses in the past and I've found that the brand tends to run small, however this cut of dress was true to size. There was a bit of extra material around the hips/thighs, so the cut of the dress is definitely for a traditional feminine shape, which I'm definitely not, but still loved the dress! Also great for larger chested gals!

Beautiful color. Classy and sexy.

The dress runs small. I am usually a 4 (120lbs 32c) but it was extremely tight. The 6 fit loose in the chest area but it felt more comfortable in the waist area . Nonetheless I got several compliments and I felt great in it.

Awesome Color

I loved the color of this dress, flattering for all skin tones (I myself am quite fair). I usually wear a 4 or 6 but followed the advice of other reviews on this one and ordered a 6 and for my backup, an 8. I ended up wearing the 8 as the 6 was snug around my hips. I'm a pear shape so the 8 was a little big in the chest area but not enough to be too noticeable or uncomfortable. I had so much fun wearing this dress, definitely recommend!

Ventured out of my comfort zone and picked this melon-colored dress. It was form fitting but comfortable and extremely flattering. Great length for tall girls!

I ordered a 4 and a 6 but probably needed at least an 8. Runs very small. Beautiful dress though! Lovely color, perfect to wear to a wedding or any event. Might try this one again in a larger size.

Perfect Pink Color

The color was very flattering and a lot of people commented on how beautiful it was. It was a little on the long side but it worked out perfectly. Non stretchy material so I wouldn't size down.

Beautiful color, unique neckline

Gorgeous color, top and waist fits to size but the hips were wider than expected. It was still flattering but just boxy in the hips. Got lots of compliments but ultimately the leg opening restricted dancing a bit. Would be really cute on full hourglass or pear shape.

Almost perfect!

I rented this dress for a rehearsal dinner. Based on the reviews, I ordered sizes 10 and 12. The 10 fit perfectly and the 12 was way too big. This dress is definitely cut for curvier figures - I have a larger bust and hips and I still had more than enough room in both of those areas. The only thing I didn't love was the way it pouched around my midsection. I had planned to wear spanx but realized that mine were too long and were visible through the back slit so I had to scrap that idea. I definitely would have felt more confident if I had them on! The color is gorgeous. I needed to wear a strapless bra underneath. I paired this with nude heels and turquoise earrings.

Great color for summer wedding or party

Form-fitting yet conservative for a church reception. Color and cross neck detail makes it fun. Hits at calf (5'4"). A little tight when sitting but comfortable to dance and move around in. Would rent again!

Stand out style and color!

This was one of the most flattering dresses I've ever worn. I received so many compliments and inquiries on how they could get their hands on it. I have extremely wide shoulders and a broad back, so I had to go up a size for it to zip all the way up.

Runs small, but a beautiful color

This dress is perfect for the thinner ladies of the world. I am busty with an athletic frame. I usually wear between sizes 8-10 but ordered a 10 and 12 to be safe after reading reviews and the 12 was still too tight on my bust area and wouldn't zip. So bummed because the dress and color themselves are absolutely stunning.

Love!

Gorgeous color. Fit TTS with a little more room in the shoulders/bust than I needed for my petite frame, and a little extra room in the hips as well. Length was to my knees. Overall felt super comfortable in this and loved the color and style!

First time renting a dress and will definitely do it again. This dress was amazing with the color, design and fit (even though it does run small, go a size up or two). I received compliments at the wedding and even afterward.

Hot dress

Both the size 10 and 12 fit great. 12 had little more wiggle room in bust. Also it seemed like the cross straps were a tad different - the size 10 had a circle opening, but it was starting to tear a little so the 12 was better for dancing.

Amazing fit for curvy hips

I was skeptical of this one because the light solid color and tight fit, mostly worried about some unflattering lines showing up. However It fit so amazing I was genuinely surprised! Tons of compliments and the color is super pretty

Great color

I have an athletic build and there was plenty of room in the hips, but not enough in my butt. Loved the cut and color and got lots of compliments but was slightly limited on the dance floor due to the cut. The size 6 was too small in the chest.

Flattering fit and color

Beautiful color! perfect for a spring or summer wedding with thick material that hides undergarment lines. Worn with a strapless sticky bra and very form fitting. So much so that the dress ripped when I was walking to the ceremony. Fortunately had safety pins handy to remedy the wardrobe malfunction but was very surprised that this happened as I've rented the same dress before in a different color. The rip was pretty far up the back of the dress and the zero might be snug for us bigger bottomed girls but I still give it 4 stars overall.

The skirt is tight so you can't take huge steps. Can't wear a bra. No hiding bulk- this fits like a glove and isn't forgiving.

I sized up after reading reviews and it was way too big. An 8 or even a 6 May have worked. The color was beautiful and the dress was well made. Could have been a great choice.

Lots of compliments!

I have always had great success when Renting the runway. But this fell a little short of amazing. I still loved the dress, the customer service and delivery were great but most of the other reviews I would agree with. I normally wear a 4 but went with the 6. The 4 probably fit the best as far as the cut but I was going to a wedding and I wanted to make sure I would eat :) I am almost 5' 1" and am 34dd. The worst was I needed to wear a bar but with it being just a little bit big on top made it hard to hide the bra. So I felt like I was messing with that all night. Other than that I loved it and received a ton of compliments. Length was good with a 4" heel. Great structured material. My measurements are just unique so it made it hard to love but it really is a great dress just not for my body
