Borrowed this for a rehearsal dinner in Miami. Absolutely loved the fit and colors (Got a size 2, when I usually wear a 4). Would definitely recommend!

I rented this dress for a spring wedding in Baltimore. It was so cute with lots of great color, but quite big for me in the bust (and I rented a size 0 - my normal size) and was starting to show some signs of wear.

This was my first RTR rental and I was so happy with the experience. Dress was beautiful, more colorful than the pictures. I ended up wearing the backup size 0. Normally I'm a 2 or 4. The only problem was keeping the dress up, I'm small chested and it was slipping a lot. I wore this to a summer on the beach wedding and received tons of compliments. Didn't want to return it!

This was my first rental and I will definitely be renting again! I'm 5'1" 108 lbs. The 0 fit almost perfectly, just a little big in the chest. Length is about 2 inches from my knees - perfect for the wedding I rented it for!

Love the print

Very pretty design/print. If you're petite and small on top, the 0 might be a tad big so be careful

Order a size down!

I loved the print, but it was way too big on the top and was a bit baggy on the bottom for me. I should have ordered a size down. Instead, I wore the Noir Dancer Bodice Dress, which fit perfectly.

"You look like a model!"

I loved this dress! However, this dress runs kind of large in the bust area especially. Although I have to keep pulling up the dress, it's a beautiful piece and I am glad I rented it!

Having friends ask to borrow my dress--and getting to share RTR with them instead!

The colors of the dress are more vibrant than they look in the photo, but to me that's definitely a good thing. My main complaint was with the fit--it was a bit big in the bust (and I'm a 34DD, so that was weird). But that aside, it was still able to wear it and was happy with how it looked. The dress ended up being a big hit at my sorority semi-formal!

Bright and bold dress - wish it was still in my closet!

This is a really fun dress! I loved the colors and the pattern. I also really liked that the band around the waist ties in the back in a way that is adjustable, allowing it to fit just right. The skirt is very forgiving/not fitted on the lower body. The reason I thought it ran a bit large is the top. My regular size is a 4 but the top didn't stay up. The 2 fit perfectly. The only con I can think of is that the fabric wrinkles very easily. It is one of those fabrics that as soon as you sit down once you will have lines/creases. It didn't detract from how much I loved wearing this dress, but it might bother someone more than me. Fantastic delivery/customer service as always.

I was really hesitant getting this dress because I wanted to wear it to a semi formal event, but it turned out to be absolutely perfect! The colors are a lot brighter and way prettier in person. I only say the dress runs large because the bust in the size 2 is made for someone with a cup size larger than B, but with a little dress tape it held up just fine.

Really pretty dress, was a little large though in the bust

I rented the 0 to wear to a friend's birthday dinner, but it was a little large in the bust area for it to be totally comfortable. It did fit though overall, and I got lots of compliments. Would recommend it.

Both sizes I received showed major signs of wear which was a turn-off for me, one had a large rip in the back seam (RTR was very nice and accomodating--they went above and beyond to try and help). Stuck with nothing else to wear I squeezed into the smaller size since it had less wear. It is a pretty dress and looked great on my pear shape. Just wish it was in better condition

Loved the pattern and vibrant colors, still was flattering with a bigger bust. A little on the shorter side if your taller but shows perfect amount of leg

I was disappointed with this dress. Most of the reviews had great things to say and the majority said it was true to size. I'm usually a 6 but just to be safe, I ordered my second size to be an 8. Not only was the 6 wayyyy off, the 8 didn't even fit. I could barely get the zipper up (although half the problem was that the quality of the hidden zipper was poor), but even then the dress was so short that there was no way I could sit down without showing the world my business. And I'm only 5'0"! On top of the size issues, I felt the coolors on the dress weren't nearly what they appear to be online. I've rented other dresses from RTR and this was by far, my worst experience.

Too tight!

I rented this for Easter and was unable to wear it (You'll see in my other review I posted about the Nanette dress I wore instead). I really loved the colors in this dress and it was a fabulous fabric. As a 36D it was just not going to happen with my bust. It was too bad because this is so cute!

The colors on this dress are brighter in person. It's a beautiful style! I am normally in between a 2 and 4 depending on how tight the skirt of the dress is. The 2 fit me perfectly! However, I am tall and it was almost a little too short for me. But perfect for a bachelorette party! I would definitely recommend this dress! Another wonderful experience with RTR!

This dress is really cute, but shorter than I had anticipated. I ended up wearing something else (another dress I'd rented), wish it had been a couple inches longer because this one was adorable.

I ended up not wearing this dress, but it is very pretty. The colors are a little bit more muted (there's more gray than you can see in the picture), but it's still a great pattern. I usually wear a 4 or 6. I only got the 6 in this dress and probably would have worn it had I gotten the 4. It felt a little too bulky up top with my padded strapless bra, but without it, it was too baggy (I'm a 34C). It probably would've also been more flattering if it were more fitted. Where the band fit on the 6, made me look too boxy. It's also worth noting that the measurements listed here are wrong. I was concerned, because 35" would fall way past the knee, but a fit specialist measured the dress in the warehouse and said the 4 was 24.5" and the 6 was 25.5". Unlike other reviewers, I did not find the dress too short. It fell a little past midthigh on me.

Wore this to a summer wedding. Received a compliment from the bride! It's a little more gray in real life than in the photos here. Still, very colorful (the gray made it a little less flashy than I thought it would be). It was a very comfortable fit. I didn't wear a bra with it and it stayed up fine.

Gorgeous but a bit uncomfortab

I am busty for my size - the dress fit well in the chest and stayed put without double-sided tape all over the place thanks to the boning in the bodice. While the boning lends great support, it is also uncomfortable for sitting because the ribs of the boning were sticking me in the ribs and waist during the dinner.

The dress came earlier then I expected and RTR made it easy to return. I can't wait to rent my next look!

I wore this to an afternoon wedding and it looked and fit amazing! I had to get it pressed upon arrival and noticed that the lining came past the dress in front, but a little double stick tape fixed that. Since I am a pear I was a little concerned that the lining might be tight around my hips but it fit nicely. The dress may be a little short for some but it worked for me since I have shorter legs. Overall I had a had a great experience with RTR and this beautiful dress! Looking forward to renting again!

Cute Dress for Spring/Summer

I liked this dress, but it was quite short on me and the strapless nature of it combined with being shorter than expected made it inappropriate for the wedding I was attending, so I chose to wear the other dress I rented.

Loved how this dress fit me!

I wore this dress to an outdoor wedding in early June. The print was perfect for the season! It fit really well, but beware if you're tall - this dress will be short on you! I loved the sweetheart neckline -- it gives the dress a young, flirty style. Would definitely rent again. (P.S. Check out the bride's earrings... they're from RTR too!)
