dress is cute, but stabs me a little
the colors on the website are accurate, as is the shape of the dress. in order to create the layers the dress has an layer in btwn the fabric that at first feels like tulle. as i moved around during the day i noticed that it wld sometimes poke through the fabric and stab me a little, irritating my skin. i took a closer look/feel and it actually looks like the material you wld use for a screen door. maybe if your skin wasn't sensitive it wld be fine, but as much as i liked the style, i had to take off a star for the irritation. the hem hit an inch or so above my knee. the fabric is rather thick and structured. it may make you look wider because it does flare out. no bra needed, but you can wear a regular one

I was so excited to choose this dress for my vacation in Jamaica but not a dress for the occasion.
The fit : Dress is too boxy. Fabric is hard and a bit itchy. Not flowy at all :( Print is beautiful but felt almost theatrical.

Too small in bust, didn't wear.
After reviewing other RTR user comments, I went with a 42. The waist fit perfectly, however, the chest was one size too small. Also, I noticed the arm seams are wide/large relative to the size of the dress. I won't reorder a larger size since the arm hole/seams may be even wider going up. I'm 5'9, 130, 34 DDD

This dress was nothing short of exceptional! The quailty is very high end and couture like.
I would rent this dress over and over again. It fit true to size, and works well for an hourglass figure.

Special dress
This is for a special occasion. It's structured, girly, and fabulous. I absolutely loved how luxurious and heavy it was. The fabric has a distinct waffle like texture and the colors are bold and vibrant. Fits true to size.

Spunky statement piece
The dress was so fun and spunky! It ran a little small so I wore the size up as the fabric does not have much give. The only annoyance was the tulle sewn into the bodice poked into my skin. Otherwise this is the perfect statement dress for a party!

Unique and gorgeous!!
I loved this dress. Enchanting fabric and cut. I'm tall, and thought it was flattering. I usually have a hard time with doll ish dresses matching the small part of my waist, but this was great! Wore with big peace sign earrings and wedges for an early dinner.

Loved how the dress came packaged in the garment bag! Felt so fancy!
This dress was just what I hoped for, I had high expectations and they were exceeded! I am 5'9 and 122 lbs, the size 40 fit perfectly. I have a small bust but felt this dress was very flattering. The skirt had some stiff material in the lining, like tulle, which made the skirt delightfully playful, I liked how it made the skirt puff out a little. The dress was comfortable and I liked that I could wear a bra without worrying about any straps showing. Anyway, it was an amazing dress and I wish I owned it haha. Highly recommend!

Great for petites
This dress fit perfectly! I'm short and very petite but it wasn't too long and it wasn't too big in the waist or shoulders like most dresses are. The colors were beautiful and the quality of the dress was superb! Everyone loved it, including me! Other reviews stated that the tulle was uncomfortable. However, I had absolutely no issues with it sticking me. I felt it as I was putting on the dress, but other than that, I was very comfortable in it.

Eye Catching Dress
I got complements all night from this fun and flirty dress. I wore it to a wedding that was a little casual so I paired it with flats. But you could easily wear this with heals for a dressy look occasion. As other reviewers have mentioned, the length was perfect for petites. It's tight around the bust though so anyone over a B cup, size up! Here's the downside: The tool under the dress was extremely scratchy. On a comfort scale of 1-10, I give it a 2. I had to wear spanx underneath to protect my skin from irritating me all night. It worked like a charm.

Fun dress worn to country club wedding.
First time Renting the Runway and will definitely do it again. I wore this dress to a country club wedding. Received tons of compliments and it randomly matched husband's groomsman tux. I am 5'10 and it was quite short so I wore short style spanx to make sure nothing inappropriate showed. Wore with gold necklace and black, strappy, open toed kitten heels. A few things to note 1) I tried on the size 8 dress at store in Georgetown and liked it because it had a big beautiful flower on the front. Store ordered me a size up and the big beautiful flower wasn't on the size 10 dress. Probably would have noticed if I had looked at others reviews though. 2) when it arrived, the dry cleaning process pushed all the tulle to the side and it looked really awkward on. I don't have a steamer so used an iron like a steamer and once the tulle was steamed and the pleats in the skirt were ironed down it didn't look awkward anymore. 3) the wedding was outdoors for only 25 minutes and the heavy fabric / tulle made me sweat really bad. Once inside I was fine but outside it was really uncomfortable.

Fun party dress!
This dress was different from something I would normally wear but I loved it. I got the 44 and usually wear a 6. The material is thicker than I thought it would be. There is also a layer of tulle sewn into the skirt. Loved this dress!

RTR Team Review
Party in the front and the back! This dress has a gorgeous squared open back! The floral print and mix of colors are very unique! The full skirt is super flattering! However I would suggest wearing spanx underneath since there is a tulle layer that can get quite itchy. The material is heavier than it seems, but nothing crazy. Running true to size, I would recommend sizing up for back up. Wear this dress for a day time event such as a wedding or graduation. You will receive a ton of compliments!

Ultimate classy showstopping party dress.
I'm not a gifted writer. I can't possibly express how this dress felt and made me feel. It was super fun and vibrant. Great fit for tall athletic build. Full skirt is very comfortable on lower body if you are extra curvy down there. The colors are rich and the material is like a beautiful heavy summer linen. Obviously it's an attention grabber so you have to be comfortable with that. And for wider girls you also have to be comfortable with the fact that the skirt spreads out quite a bit. Highly recommend. I may have shed a tear when I put it in the UPS drop box :-).

Classic fun dress
Got so many compliments with this dress. The fit was perfect and complimented my body. The material is a thick linen type, not what I expected. There is a betting underneath the dress to make it poof out. Mine was all messed up when I received it so I had to work on it for awhile to get it to lay right. Other than that great dress. It was a hit for a day at the track!

Bright, comfortable and chic
I rented this for my lost 18 year old daughter to spend a long day in NYC for Broadway and dinner at the Four Seasons Restaurant (just before it closed). It fit her perfectly (she's tall, thin with long legs and rather short and petite torso). The dress held up well considering she started wearing it at 6:30 am to get on a 3 hour Amtrak train ride to NYC and we didn't get to our hotel till past midnight. The fabric is rather thick and a bit stiff, but she didn't complain about it being too hot to wear all day in July. I think the weight of the fabric helped the dress keep its shape rather than wrinkle. The mystery bling (Blue Mohawk Earrings by Tova) was beautiful, in excellent condition (previously I've received some that look a bit too worn), and complemented the dress beautifully.

Pretty
It's a bit itchy with the tulle. Otherwise, it's a great color and fluffs up nicely. I suggest this if you don't mind having a heavily structured dress.

Perfect dress for a wedding in a vineyard. Got many compliments. Felt very pretty!!!
Dress fit perfectly. Could wear a regular bra -- bonus! The material is thick linen --at first I didn't like it but then realized it's perfect for a summer wedding! Was a tiny bit faded due to multiple dry cleanings (I'm guessing) but other than that perfect! I felt very pretty and got a ton of compliments.

Such a fun dress!
I love this dress. When it arrived, it was quite bunched up and looked insane, but after steaming out the tulling, it was perfect. It is a very heavy fabric. The tulling poked through at my stomach which would have made it unwearable, so I put on an under garmet to block the irritation and it was perfect. The colors are beautiful and it felt fun and flirty. Wore with coral heels for a polished look. Got lots of compliments on this one!

The original pattern
I ordered up on my size and ended up wearing that, only because I felt the bottom was less poofy and didn't scratch as much (I didn't have to wear any extra garments). I wore this to a wedding in Hawaii and the pattern fit great for the occasion. It was a little heavy for a day in the high 80s, but by sunset i was very comfortable. I wasn't sure how I felt about the high neckline but it was a class dress and I could wear a regular bra with it!

This is a very pretty dress however I was a bit disappointed with the fabric.
Fun blooms on the dress however the black skirt was faded and dull. I was a bit disappointed and did not wear the dress.

So many comliments on this dress. Fabric is thick so I wouldn't recomend for a warm weather event.
Fits somewhat small and as mentioned, fabric is thick and not all that soft.
