Loved this dress!!
I wore this dress to a wedding on the coast and got so many compliments! It was beautiful, with amazing detail. I was able to wear a normal strapless bra with it. The neckline was a little itchy but worth it!

Gorgeous dress for an outdoor wedding
Wore this dress to my brother-in-laws wedding and was so happy with it. I read multiple reviews before renting and was a little worried about the bust being large, but it fit great. I am usually a size 4 and ended up wearing the 2 and honestly thought the 0 would have been a slightly better fit (which is insane), but the fabric was very forgiving and I was the only one who knew it wasn't as fitted as it could be. I got compliments all night and best of all it was super comfortable for a later summer outdoor wedding. I didn't want to send it back!

Amazing dress for Colorado wedding!
This dress fit perfectly. There was plenty of room in the chest which is what I was worried about. I ordered the 8 and 10 and ended up wearing the 8, it fit like a glove.

Lacey and Beautiful!
The top was a little large but overall I loved this dress. The cut was very unique. I am tall so I worry about dresses being long enough and this one was. Perfect for a summer event!

Unique and flattering dress with beautiful details!
I got this dress as a backup style when there was a problem with the dress I originally ordered, and I'm so glad I did! Worn for my birthday dinner, absolutely loved it! Got so many compliments! The cut is super flattering although it is a tiny bit big in the bust (easily fixed by wearing a strapless bra). The detailing on the lace is so gorgeous!

I rented this for a wedding. The details on this dress were beautiful!
Dress is very comfortable (especially in hot weather!). The dress was not tight at all, there is room for dancing! The only con is that you may need some fashion tape in the chest to make sure it does not fall down. You can wear a strapless bra with this dress.

Super cute and comfy dress
Love this dress it was so comfy. Had to get a strapless/backless bra to wear because without one my boobs looked saggy. I definitely had to keep pulling up the top park as it was a little big. But overall this is a gorgeous dress!

I wore this to my niece's beautiful outdoor wedding.
I had looked at this dress many times and decided to rent it for a wedding. I received compliments from complete strangers as well as family and friends and felt beautiful in it. I read many reviews and rented the size 4. Quite a few of the reviews mentioned it being large on top and it was, but I couldn't have worn a smaller size because the rest of the dress fit perfectly. At first the extra material on top made me worry that I was going to have a problem with my bra showing, but it wasn't an issue. Several reviewers also mentioned not being able to wear a bra because it showed, but I wore my strapless bra and it worked fine. One thing that no one mentioned is that because of all open work lace on the dress it tended to catch on everything- tables, chairs, my bracelet, my purse. I spent much of the evening chasing young grandchildren around the venue so became a little paranoid about wrecking the dress! I did get a small rip in the dress from catching on a table. I called RTR before returning and they were extremely understanding and said that the insurance would take care of that. I would highly recommend this dress if you're not chasing little ones around!

Love!!
I loved this dress so much, I didn't want to take it off. A pretty royal blue with pops of bright pink throughout. The neckline is very unique as well. Normally between a 0 and a 2, I was worried when RTR notified me the size 2 was no longer available, but the 0 fit just fine.

Lace. Birds. Flowers. Compliments.
I was super impressed by the dress as soon as I put it on. I couldn't stop looking at the birds and flowers and pointing them out to everyone who saw me try it on. The neck area could irritate a bit, so I rubbed on some anti-chaffing stick. The chest area is very flattering as the shape eliminates "side boobs." I usually wear a 0 or 2, and ended up wearing size 0 to the wedding. The dress falls to knee length for me, my fiance, parents, cousins, relatives, and strangers all complimented on the dress. "You look hot." "This dress is suitable for you." "I really like this dress... you rented it? You should definitely buy it." I felt great in teh dress & would definitely rent again.

So sad I couldn't wear it :(
This dress is stunning!!!! I mean gorgeous! The lace is high quality, the colors are amazing! And the style is unique. However.... it runs huge! I am normally a size 0, sometimes a 2. I rented the 0, and it was falling off!!! I really wanted to make it work, put a little padding in the bust, fashion tape, etc. but it was just too big to pull off, so I didn't end up wearing it. It also is an interesting cut on the top so a strapless bra may not even work. If you have a larger rib cage and bust you can probably make it work, but size down for sure!

This dress was beautiful, I only wish I was able to wear it.
The colors really pop and the lace detailing was beautiful in person. I couldn't wear because the dress ran way too large. I would recommend sizing down for both your primary rental and your backup, as this dress does not fit true to size in the waist, bust, or hip

Unique
Loved this dress! Very flattering and fun texture. Loved the cut although it runs big. I'm usually a 4, sometimes a 2 and I rented the 2 because other reviews said to size down. I probably could have worn even the 0, but the 2 still worked. Great length and not too tight around the legs. Underlay is long enough too.

Compliments ALL NIGHT! Great dress for a wedding!
This was a fantastic dress! It was super comfortable, and I received compliments all night. I found that it ran a little large. I'm a true 14 but the 12 fit me perfectly. The bust on the 14 was way too big and I would've fallen out of it, no doubt. This was a perfect choice for a wedding!

This dress was perfect and so flattering for a pear shaped woman!
This dress was seriously perfect. I wasn't sure how it would fit based on the pictures, but it really did fit well. The whole dress fit nicely, just a comment the top was a little loose on me. I didn't have to worry about it falling down though because of the way the neckline is. I highly recommend this dress.

Simply gorgeous! So elegant and classy.
Material is kind of scratchy, so beware. Also it's very very loose up top, but then again I'm only a 32B.

Not good for a short torso
I ended up wearing my backup dress instead. The dress is beautiful, but the fit didn't work on me. The neck detailing was too big/long for me, which made the dress sit really low on my bust. Just a note though - I was concerned about the sheer panels in the back, but you couldn't see my nude bra through them at all.

I was unsure about the knee length when I put this dress on but I received compliments on it all night. I wore this dress with silver strappy heels. I loved the cut on the back of the dress. Runs true to size.

Gorgeous Dress
This dress fit perfectly.I usually wear a 6 and the 6 fit like a glove. I was able to wear a strapless bra and I filled out the top (36 C). I received so many compliments and actually comfortably wore it to 2 weddings in one day!!!!

Wore this gorgeous dress to my 30th birthday/engagement brunch. I am usually between a size 4 and 6 and the 4 fit like a glove. No problem wearing with a strapless bra. Didn't notice the bird pattern in the lace overlay until it arrive--such a beautiful detail! I got SO many compliments and felt so elegant. Thanks RTR!

Lots of compliments!
This dress was very pretty and I recieved lots of compliments. It was perfect for a summer wedding. It was larger in the bust area as many pointed out in their reviews. I used tape to tighten it was less noticeable. I likes that you could wear a strapless bra and it was very comfortable.

I loved every detail of this dress, from the high neckline, gorgeous lace and flower details, and vibrant colors. I felt that it fit true to size, and was long enough to make me feel comfortable bending down to pick up my kids.

Perfect for a vineyard wedding in July
Fit a little loose in the bust, but was able to make up for that with a strapless bra. Could have been worn without a bra. The dress is gorgeous, I received several compliments.

Unique but not weird
I received loads of compliments on this dress. It is very striking, feminine, and classy. The dress was comfortable. However, it runs big so fashion tape is a must. I used the tape to hold up the top of the dress by my side ribs as it gapped. The back is too low for a strapless so I'd recommend a sticky bra.

Stand-out / statement cocktail dress
I really enjoyed wearing this dress to a formal summer wedding. The colors and lace overlay are striking. I normally wear a 6/8 and wore the 6. I probably could have comfortably worn a 4 too. As others have mentioned, the bust is surprisingly roomy. I wore a strapless bra low and found if I pulled the dress down, the bust area stayed in place. I was comfortable enough to dance in it all night. Received many compliments. Loved it with a nude sandal and white drop earrings. This dress is so distinctive, it was great to be able to rent it. If I owned it, people would definitely recognize it if I were to 'repeat' wear it. So RTR was perfect!

Beautiful wedding guest option
This dress by far was the most expensive one I've ever rented. But, it was worth every penny. The back design is ideal for covering up a weird sports tan line that this time of year tends to happen. I'm usually between an 8 and a 10, but, the 10 was unavailable. I gambled and went with the 8 and 12. This dress is meant to be fitted. The 12 was a little too big and didn't sit right. I went with 8, but, I do think the 10 would have been perfect. I'm always hesitant with sizing but was very pleased this was really spot on. The fabric was light but thick enough to not see anything. I highly recommend this if you want to make a statement at a summer event!

Stand out dress
Was not happy when they only sent my back up size of a 14 and never sent the 12....but I made it work! Really thing the 12 would have looked more flattering but with a little fashion tape to keep the top in place I think this dress really looked nice.

Gorgeous Dress, but runs big and not for the short waisted.
So this is an absolutely gorgeous dress but it is NOT for short waisted women, and it is very large up top. I still rated it five stars because I think on the right person it would be perfect. However, it took quite a bit of dress tape and safety pins to make it work for me, and I still wasn't entirely happy with the look (that said, I got compliments all night on it, so it may have just been me). I had read the reviews that it was big in the bust and to size down but had somewhat disregarded them as a 34DDD, but they were not joking -- it was still really big on me. The hips/stomach runs perhaps a little big, so as a typical size 8, I wish that I had ordered the six for backup (but still would have had issues with gapping because of the waist). I recommend this for long-torsoed girls and would recommend anyone that rents it to invest in some hem tape because of how large the chest tends to run.

Perfect dress for a beautiful summer evening wedding.
I wear a size 2 or 4 usually. The size 2 in this dress was the perfect fit. The dress is unique, well made and very comfortable to wear all night. The cut of the neckline and the back is absolutely head-turning!

Stylist Review
A unique cut and design to this dress! This colorful dress runs true to size. I would go one size up for the backup as there is no stretch to this fabric. There is comfortable room at the bust so this dress is great for any cup size. A strapless bra needs to be worn because of the cut on this dress. It is fitted at the natural waist but there is a decent amount of room in the hips. Due to the high neck, I would not wear a necklace with this dress. Instead, I would pair it with a nice pair of diamond earrings and a bracelet to match.

Very comfortable and unique. I received many compliments.
Jewelry could catch on it so choose accessories accordingly. I'm 5'4 and it was just short enough not to be too long. A bigger chest helps the dress stay up. I really liked wearing this dress.

It was a little big on the top but unnoticeable. I rented this dress for a wedding abroad and I didn't have to worry about ironing it which was awesome. The dress fit very well overall.

Beautiful dress for a warm-weather wedding!
Loved the color and detailing. Great, light-weight fabric. Neckline was super unique. Received tons of compliments. Downside - the bust was a bit large, which is a problem I rarely deal with. I was in-between sizes and sized up just to be more comfortable. Would definitely recommend sizing down for your backup size.

Amazing color and lace detail
This dress was a gorgeous material and had a great color combination. I was so happy with the dress quality, but didn't love the style. I felt like it was just a bit too much going on and I didn't like wearing my hair up to show off the neckline. A major pro was it was incredibly comfortable. I could eat and dance with zero problems! I'm usually between a 4 and 6. The 4 fit perfect with just a little extra room, a 2 would have been tighter and a 6 would have been a tent.
