I had a great time at the event, but returned this dress without wearing it.

This dress was lower cut than I expected. I was attending a church event and didn't feel comfortable with a possible cleavage reveal, so I returned the dress without wearing it. If I had been attending a different event, I probably would have worn it.

A beautiful wedding in the California desert outside on a beautiful evening.

It fit nicely and I got tons of compliments. Very comfortable.

Fun spring feel!

I thought this was a pretty dress, but I am a true size 14, so the 14W was a little loose. I ended up belting it which made it more figure flattering. I liked the bold flower print on it, it is very pretty. The wedding I went to was also at a catholic church, so it was 'church' friendly with the length and wasn't too revealing. Overall, it turned out to be a nice dress for the spring wedding I attended.

I wore this to work and to dinner on my birthday.

It fit fantastic but a little big but not enough to notice. I wish I would have ordered the 16W. I received compliments all day long. Gorgeous cut and print! Would rent this again.

Fantastic spring dress for nearly any occasion!

This dress was a wonderful surprise - I didn't expect it to work well with my slightly pear-shaped body because it's a little more form-fitting than I usually do, but because it was one size larger than my norm, it ended up being perfect. It was pretty loose in the top but fit comfortably on the bottom, so I added a belt that matched well and presto! Perfect dress for a baptism. So many compliments, all day long!!

Didn't get to wear the dress!

I loved this dress on the website and I was so excited to wear it to my sister in law's graduation ceremony. The fitness fine, if anything a tad large. The material was so comfy and I was looking forward to wearing the dress, however I couldn't get over the length on me. I am 5'2" and the dress came down to the middle of my shin. It looked so matronly and I was definitely disappointed. Shorter ladies, this dress may not be for you!

Memorable dress for my rehearsal dinner

I loved this dress. It was insanely comfortable. I am normally a 16, but I think I probably could have done a 14 in the dress. I did wear spanx, but more for comfort than necessity. I loved that the dress had sleeves. It was a big hit and I got a ton of compliments!

I love having a beautiful dress to feel great on a special occasion. RTR 's process is painless!

This is a beautiful dress. The fabric is a heavy cotton and needed pressing after I received it to remove wrinkles. The neckline is wide and probably would have fit better if I had a larger bust (I am a 40C). It has a deep V so if you DO have a larger bust and don't like a lot of cleavage this dress is probably not for you. I think it is close to true to size. I am big around the middle and was very happy with the fit other than the issues with the bust. I rented the size 20 and 22 and wore the smaller size. My usual size is 20 or 2x.

Great Dress, But I could not wear it.

The dress is so pretty. However I could not wear it. I also had a situation where UPS did not deliver it, so I had to go out of my way 45 minutes to pick it up. I ran there, got it and ran home, and never had the chance to try it on, because I had another event that night, as well as the day after, until the day of my birthday brunch for my Grandmother in law. RTR did however nicely send me a backup just in case, free at no charge, which came Saturday morning, which was very good customer service wise. However I did not try the dresses on until the day of my event. And it looked like a potato sack, it was a disaster on me. Better yet, the dresses had a weird smell to them, which sort of makes me glad that they did not fit for the reason of the smell alone. I am mad cause I wasted so much money on this dress, that I could not wear. Its such a pretty dress, but it did not even fit. Its such a pretty dress too!

This dress was not able to be worn due to the fact that it runs very big and very long.

I was swimming in this dress and it was very long for people that are shorter. No other sizes were available when I was renting.

Its a cute dress, but overall I don't think it was worth the cost

I liked the print on the dress, but I felt that the cut of the dress was not flattering. The bust was too large for my body overall, my sister (who wears the same size but has different proportions) fill it in much better. I would recommend this more for a larger busted person. The sleeve length was too short for my arms, and I didn't find it flattering. Additionally, the waist wasn't really defined and it needed a belt to be figure flattering. The way the flower pattern was laid out I felt meant that a belt didn't quite go with the overall look. I ended up feeling sort of like a sausage in the dress. I would not recommend this dress for pear shaped women. The fabric wrinkles easily, and after sitting through the reception there were a lot of wrinkle lines in the dress. Overall, I excepted better for the cost of this dress.

A beautiful dress for an ordinary day.

Let me say that the picture doesn't do the fabric justice! It is such a beautiful dress in person that I was so disappointed I couldn't wear it. I am short, a size 16, and large-chested (36-DDD), but the dress was too large in the stomach and chest. I even sized down and it was still too big. The bottom half of the dress was well-fitted and lovely- so much so that I tried to belt the dress to hide the extra fabric. Even my husband noticed that there was too much fabric hanging in the chest and midsection. This would be a lovely dress on an apple or triangle shape. I'll probably even try renting this again in the colder months and hide the extra fabric with a sweater or jacket.

Overall a nice dress, but too big

First, the colors on this dress are awesome for a spring/ summer wedding. I did receive a lot of compliments and it was comfortable to move around in. My one big issue is that it's large. I'm a 14-16 and the 14W was just a bit too big. the V came much lower than I thought b/c the shoulders were big and the mid section seemed to stretch out as the night went on. So, overall, cute and comfortable, just a bit too large

I wore this to a spring outdoor wedding.

It seemed kind of large to me everywhere except the hips, so I cinched it a little bit with a thin belt that I had. It is a very pretty dress.

Beautiful dress!

I'm a 16/18 and the 16 was too small and the 18 a bit large. Received a ton of compliments when I wore it to a black tie optional evening wedding. I was concerned that the dress might be better suited to a garden party but I felt very comfortable in it and in no way under-dressed. Debating about renting it again for an October event but may be too spring/summer print

Beautiful Dress with quality fabric.

I am normally a 14 but can wear 14W if I want a little extra space. This one was a huge 14W. I did not end up wearing as planned because it was just too big. Nice fabric and nice cut if you are a W size.

Lovely for spring...

Rented this for a baby christening and it was great for a conservative, but festive event. It was a little boxy and worked better with a belt. But the pattern was unique and eye catching. Be warned - I got a little water on it and it left a mark. I'm sure it'll come out with dry cleaning, but the fabric was more delicate than I prefer.

This dress photographs well

When I first took this dress out of the bag I thought it looked like curtains at my Grandma's house - it is not true white, it is off-white or cream. I put it on and my attitude improved. I wore it to a dinner function and it was loose fitting on me (I'm normally a 14Reg) and comfortable, no need for spanx! It was fitting for a summer evening when the weather was slightly less hot. I did think it ran long and sat below my knees; I am 5'7".

Cool and Comfortable!

This dress is a bit casual for a wedding! I was worried about the cream color being too "white", but the flower print on this dress is gorgeous. In my case, it ran big. I absolutely could have worn a smaller size. A few cons: the print does not do a great job camouflaging the mid-section. Also, the dress wrinkles quickly...especially after sitting down. The sleeves are a lot shorter than in the photo, so if you like to cover your arms, this may not be the dress for you. Got lots of compliments on this dress! Wasn't my first choice, but since it was super hot the day of the wedding, I was glad to have this as a back up. It was cool and comfortable. Would absolutely recommend, especially for a function during the day.

Beautiful print and fabric but runs way too big

The fabric is substantial and soft, lining very nice. The print has gorgeous colors. Unfortunately my 14 regular body was swallowed by this 14W. It felt more like an 18/20 on my body and I was unable to wear it. It hung more like a tent on my body. Wish it came in smaller sizes.

WAY TOO BIG

I have a very hourglass figure, so often I need more material for my chest area, and why I order a "womens" size dress.. But this dress was baggy all over. I literally could have hid a watermelon under my dress. I was not overwhelmed with tthe pattern either.

Shapewear a NECESSITY!

I wanted to like this dress. It was a beautiful pattern. Unfortunately, it was more like a body-con dress, which is not how I saw it described. If you have any lumps, bumps, or problem areas... be aware that it will cling to ALL of them.

Perfect Easter Dress

What a lovely dress that went from morning until night with easy and comfortable elegance. The dress ran a little large and even larger by end of the long day but I felt fresh and festive. Many compliments. Great length and bodice.

Lots of compliments.

Great dress. The pattern is really lovely, there's a touch of stretch, so you feel like you can really move around. It hits just at the top of the knee, as pictured, even on my 5'10" frame. Only caveat was that it arrived profoundly wrinkled. I think the fabric must be prone to it. You'll need to plan on giving it a careful steaming or gentle ironing with a piece of muslin cloth before you can wear it. The wrinkles are very noticeable and you won't want to wear it until you've spruced it back up a bit. That said, that little effort was totally worth it for the countless compliments received.

Oh...the compliments I got!

This dress felt a bit snug around the hips when I first put it on, but with some shapers it fit perfectly and was more flexible a fabric than I anticipated. It was a little big on top but bottom was perfect. I made it work! Loved all the compliments I got. People I didn't even know stopped me to tell me how beautiful the dress is! Happened at least a half dozen times - that someone stopped me to say how beautiful my dress was.

Perfection

I ordered a very large size because it's hard to gauge with different designers. I normally wear a 16 in regular clothes but dresses on here have ranged in fit up to 22 for me depending on the designer. I should have tried the 16 and 18, because the 20 was just too big, but it was very comfortable and did not look baggy or boxy even though it was too big. I have 40DDs and there was no issue with this dress.

Lovely dress, but big on top!

I got a ton of compliments the day that I wore this dress! I rented it to wear to my upcoming bridal shower, but it didn't fit exactly how I'd have liked for such an occasion. I threw a cardigan and belt over top of it and wore it to work and it was just lovely. Beautiful colors and an overall really nice dress!

Great cut, runs big

Love the print and the feel. Perfect for a rehearsal dinner in Hawaii. Ran really big though.
