a fun, cute dress for a laid-back night! and the color was really great against my skin.

I had no problems with the length of this dress or the buttons, like the other reviewers. The color was vibrant and beautiful, the length was perfect, the braided belt sat in the right place, and overall it was a really charming dress. I wouldn't say it was jaw-dropping, but it was definitely flirty and fun and I got plenty of compliments at our sorority date event.

I was sadly disappointed by this dress.

Size worn: None
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I ordered the dress in an 8 and a 10 and neither dress worked for my wedding, which was so sad because I truly loved it. In the back of the dress are buttons going down and the last button is so far up that it looks as if a button fell off and all you can see is bottom! The dress is very short and the button situation in the back does not help this matter. Also, the belt that is ATTACHED to the dress runs very, very small!

i didn't like this dress on me... too much fabric in the front and my chest did not fill out the front, but could definitely look good on others!

I have rented almost 10 dresses from RTR and this was by far my least favorite dress. I wore it for Mother's Day, and thankfully I was sitting at dinner most of the time because the buttons barely covered everything in the back. The buttons in the back are very annoying. It definitely makes the dress way too short in the back and making it very easy for there to be a wardrobe malfunction. The color matches the color in the picture. All in all, I would not recommend this dress.

Soo small

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
Adorable dress, but it seriously runs small. I usually wear a 4, and the size 6 in this dress was crazy tight around the waist. The buttons kept popping open all night, one even popped off. annoying. Go up 2 sizes for sure.

The dress was everything I wanted and more but...I'm a true hourglass with hips, butt, and boobies, the dress at the waist was too too small.

This dress is gorgeous! However the buttons on the back are fabric and tend to slip out. It is also extremely short. I would wear it with a nude slip.

Gorgeous dress! The color is more of a deep coral/red, but is even better than pictured. I am usually a 0 or 2, but since there was only a 2 available I went with it because the reviews stated it runs small. It did run on the smaller side, but I probably could have done a 0 and had the belt fit a little better. It was nothing a padded bra couldn't fix though, and it turned out great. As mentioned, the snap on the back does pop open, but the buttons keep the dress on just fine. A bit of a pain though.

This dress did run small. I am usually a 4, so after reading the reviews here I ordered a 6 as my alternate size just to be safe. Even though that was months in advance...I got a call the day it was supposed to ship saying the 6 was not available. The 4 was indeed too small. Would have had to reeeeaaallly suck it in to get it buttoned. Also, I'm 5'8, and the slit in the back went up to about half way up my booty. Even if I had gotten it fastened I wouldn't have been able to wear it! Maybe the 6 would have been a little longer. Loved the fabric and the color, though.

I loved this dress! I'd describe more as an orange and less as a tomato-red, though. It is perfect for a summer night, or a summer wedding (what I wore it for). Not too short, I thought it ran pretty true to size, maybe just a bit on the small side. Like another reviewer said, though, the snaps on the back do pop open easily! Loved this.

This dress runs pretty small. The waist is not forgiving, since there's no elasticity in neither the material nor the belt. Also the dress fastens in the back with small buttons that popped open every time I bent down -- this may have been avoided had I gotten one size bigger (size 2). Otherwise it's a very beautiful dress, esp the vibrant color. I'm about 5' 2" and the hem fell at about 2" above my knee.

Loved this dress! I'm a petite size 0 and it fit perfectly. Beware of the button-up back, though. A bit tricky for hands less nimble.

Wanted to love this dress! The problem was the snap buttons in the back... unless you done plan on breathing all night, be prepared to have them snap open every five minutes! The dress is so cute, but the buttons could use some reinforcement!

This dress definitely runs small but I love it- it's flirty and fun silhouette is a must for any warm weather event and is easily dressed up or down. The button detail in the back was a bit risque (as I felt that the slit ran quite high), but I applied a bit of double sided tape to keep the layers flat and was good to go!
