I got a lot of compliments on this dress. I was very happy with it.
I didn't know what size I was, I probably should have got another size up, but I still felt sexy and beautiful in it. Very glad I got this dress as my back up dress.

Great outdoor summer wedding dress
Some of the flowers required a quick press to straighten them out but got so many compliments on this dress. Very easy to wear.

Beautiful details and comfortable to wear
The details on this dress are beautiful. Some of the flowers had to be ironed and stick out a little, but this adds to the interest and texture. I wore a nude strapless bra and it was very comfortable. I danced all night and received many compliments.

Beautiful and light
Wore this dress to my friend's wedding and I got so many compliments on it! It was very hot and the dress was airy and comfortable throughout. It worked well with my larger arms, though did punch a bit if I put my arms up.

Very pretty, but the beige dress underneath was a little to tight to be comfortable, I ended up wearing my back up

Constant stream of compliments!
I wore this dress for a cocktail attire wedding in Seattle. It was initially my back-up and I was a little worried when I got the email that I would be receiving this dress. But I was pleasantly surprised! I received compliments all night and my friends on social media loved the dress! The nude lining is tight and I had a problem with it riding up all night. I can usually wear a 6 and the 8 was pretty tight. Definitely order your extra size up!

Lovely!
Fit: The 4 just fit over my newly minted belly (menopause, not baby) with the help of a stern spanx. The six was better for the lower half, but was too big in the chest (34A not changed by menopause, thanks universe). The 6 was about 4 inches longer, not sure why... Pros: Gorgeous, rich red embroidery. Beautiful details and very easy and comfortable to wear. Lots of compliments. Cons: The fabric gathers at the waist, so if your midsection is problematic, it takes away from the line of the dress a little. You also have to watch your jewelry; the flowers sit on a mesh that catches easily.

Stand-out dress
Fit/snug at the waist helps accentuate a curvy figure; great length, even for someone who's 5'3; big bust (36DD) and the design still looked great.

Beautiful and comfy
Beautiful dress, though it runs a size or two large (I typically wear a 4 but should have gotten a 0), and the couple is a lot more maroon than red, but highly recommend.

I felt beautiful!
Beautiful dress! I got so many compliments from other wedding guests. I actually wanted to wear the size 2 for a little more breathing room in the chest area but the top button loop was broken. Luckily I could still fit the size 0. I found the shoulders to be wide at the top for both dresses -- not sure if I just have narrow shoulders. But since I have really long hair that part was hidden in the back

Beautiful and classy dress - I felt very beautiful!
This dress was very beautiful in person. Very comfortable and went great with nude pumps. The size 8 fit perfect, I am usually a size 6/8. I wore it all evening comforably. This was my first dress rental on RTR and I think it was an easy process to receive/return. I already have another dress on reserve for a future wedding and can't wait to use RTR in the future!! Overall great experience and highly recommend you give it a try!!

Did not wear
I really liked this but i should have gone a size up. I have really broad shoulders/rib cage so it was hard to zip up in the back. So sad. :( The next size up wasn't available so I was sent a different dress.

So many compliments!
The dress I ordered was damaged and this was my backup style. It didn't quite lay on my body in the most flattering way (large bust made the waist of the dress hit too high) but I still got so many compliments because it's such a pretty dress. I would definitely recommend!

Pretty dress, looked expensive.
Slightly longer than I had hoped it would be (I'm 5'7'' / 145 pounds). I delicately ironed out a few of the flowers on the dress. The 6 size was also a little loose, surprisingly, around the neck and hip areas. But since I have a DD bust, it's unlikely the 4 size would've fit anyways. It was a little snug in the arm pit area, so again, the 6 size was right for me! I got at least 4 compliments from strangers.

Lots of compliments!!
I wore this dress because the original dress I rented was not available to ship in both sizes and the size that was able to ship was way too small. This was the back-up I had selected when I placed my order (which was a really awesome feature :)). I wore the 2, and it was slightly large, but not overly large. The length was a little long for my taste, covering my knees, but I'm only 5 feet so this is a typical occurrence for me. Got lots of compliments on it!

For older crowd
Didn't end up wearing due to a few factors. 1. I'm in good shape and this dress does nothing for your figure. Think best if you need to cover up tummy 2. Front of dress looked very used. One flower was awkwardly protruding. Even if it had fit, wouldn't of worn due for this 3. At 5'7 (130 lbs) this fell below my knees. Not at all similar to photo

Unique Dress
I received several compliments on the dress's unique pattern. It was just a bit tight in the natural waste line when you're sitting (Im apple shaped so I hold weight in that area). I felt that the dress was conservative, notably it fell below my knee and was very covering, so perfect for a conservative wedding.

Didn't end up wearing this dress because my alternate was better for the summer wedding I went to, but I will definitely be renting this dress again, maybe for a fall wedding? The flower detail is beautiful.

I attended a Capital Dinner for a large, national nonprofit with 800 attendees.
This dress is much better suited for women with bigger chests. While the bottom fit perfectly, the top was roomy and not as flattering. It's a beautiful dress, but looks cheaper than it is. The size 4 I received had a few loose threads, the applique roses were bent and misshapen, and the button in the back was loose to the point that it caused the fabric bulge in the back. I got many compliments on the dress, but would not rent again.

Friend's wedding
The dress fit me nicely. I loved the color on me and I took a risk because it's not a color I normally wear. The mesh at the top of the dress was a little loose. The flowers on the dress would curl were they weren't sewn down. The nude lining under the mesh wrinkled easily.

I wore this to an outdoor Wedding in Arkansas.
I am 5'2" and 125 lbs. The 4 was a bit snug....the 6 was nice and roomy. I wore this to an outdoor wedding and we were advised to wear "sensible" shoes. I think it would have looked nicer with heels! I wore a strapless dress as bra straps would have shown through the sheer upper part of the dress. I loved this dress.

I got tons of compliments on this dress!
The dress fit great, I was very pleased with it when it arrived. It was perfect for the wedding I attended and was easy to move around and dance. The only reason I'm giving this 4 stars is that the flower appliques on the dress were lifting/curled in and didn't look as clean as the photo on the model. I will definitely rent this again though!

Not for large chested
The dress was absolutely gorgeous up close. I was so excited to wear it to a company party. However, it was a very tight fit in the chest area. I was able to zip it up with my hubby's help but wouldn't have been comfortable during the party should i decide to eat or dance. The larger size wasn't available for as a backup for the dates I needed so I wasn't able to wear it.

Pretty, but...
This dress is pretty, but the flowers fold very easily and it looks a little silly if you don't take the time to try to press them down. Also, if you have broad shoulders, this dress is not for you. It was very tight in my shoulders. Lastly, the mesh is delicate and rips really easily.

This dress is beautiful! I received compliments all night & from people who don't know me!
I'm a true petite (5' 2" tall, 110 lbs, & barely A bust size). The size 0 fit great, very comfortable for a long evening and not overly tight. The length hit me at the top of my knee. My small bust size is always problematic. I needed a padded strapless bra to fill out the bust line. The lining fell just below my bra, so I had to pin the lining and my bra. The one major con is this dress wrinkles very easily when shipped! I wish I would have sent the dress to be dry cleaned upon arrival. Several of the lace flowers are not fully secured to the mess, so they were tightly curled. I used a towel over the flowers and a warm iron to flatten. Which worked okay.

Fits true to size, tons of compliments. Nude liner does tend to bunch up a bit under the lace appliqué but I think it was only noticeable to me. I'm 5'3 and it falls just below the knee
