Loved this beautiful dress!
Rented for a black tie optional wedding. The material is light and the colors and print of the dress are beautiful - definitely a stand out dress. I didn't have any issues with sizing (remember to go up several sizes from US sizes - for reference I am typically a 0 in US and rented a 6R and the dress fit perfectly). Definitely wear heels with the dress if you are below 5'8-5'9, I wore 3 inch wedges. Would rent this dress again in a heartbeat.

Beautiful dress, sad that I could not wear it.
This dress was sent to me when my original dress became unavailable. It was as beautiful as pictured but, it ran so small. I couldn't even zip it up. This may be because they sent my go to first size and I needed to read more reviews and get a different size. No matter what, the customer service was amazing even if the dress didn't work.

SOOOO MUCH MATERIAL! I got lost in this dress.
The pattern and material are so much more so in person. This dress looks quite pretty in the photos. I was hoping for a feminine, resort-style summertime vacation patio dress. The dress was very overpowering. Layers and layers and layers of material, and the top of the dress was enormous- definitely made for a taller, bustier person. And it was VERY long. Even with 4 1/2 inch heels the dress was dragging the floor. I was unable to wear this dress.

Gorgeous
I wore this dress to a wedding. The material and cut is just amazing. The colors really made me stand out. The only con is that it is too long, even with 3 inch heels, and I am not that short (an average 5'4ft). Had to pin the bottom if I didn't want to trip over.

Beautiful but runs very small
This dress was a replacement for a dress that wasn't available to ship. It's a beautiful dress, and I was very excited to get it as a replacement. Unfortunately it runs very small so it didn't fit--not even close. It would have been a stunning choice, but be very careful with the sizing. EDIT--I just looked back at others' reviews and realized this dress uses UK sizing. That would explain why the dress that RTR sent was so small. Bummer.

Beautiful fabric, amazing dress
This was a replacement dress that RTR provided, as my first choice was unavailable. The dress material is out-of-this world lightweight, so it flowed beautifully. I wore it to a wedding in TX, so it was hot, but I was never uncomfortable in this dress. The dress fit true-to-size, and was very flattering. I didn't have to wear a bra, and the ruching in front allowed me to without showing through. This dress is expensive but it was worth it, absolutely beautiful.

Stand out
I wore this to my boyfriends brothers wedding during the summer and it was perfect. The fit was very nice. It was light for summer yet elegant for a wedding. The colors made the dress beautiful. Definitely recommend for a special event.

Beautiful - but the wrong size
The dress is very pretty and high quality. Unfortunately - I am usually a size 4 in most dresses. I've tried the 2 in another Matthew Williamson and it was so small I couldn't even attempt to do up the zipper. Based on this I thought I would size up two sizes. However the 12 UK (size 6) was HUGE! Several inches to spare around the top and waist. My backup size was a 14 - disappointed but as usual the RTR customer service was wonderful and they tried to send several replacement dresses. They just were not quite tropical enough for the occasion. Really felt as though RTR tried to do their best given this situation.
