STYLIST REVIEW

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
Matthew Williamson runs extremely small as a designer, therefore it was no surprise that I found this style to run on the tighter side. I would size up, even according to the UK size chart. The sizing does not affect how awesome the pattern of this dress is. It gives off a vintage feel which you can really play with. I recommend this if you are looking for something different. There is not stretch in the fabric, especially the chest, so if you are busty I would not steer you towards this style!

Sweet summer dress!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
Wore this to a rehearsal dinner this summer, and paired it with the pink ring like the model is wearing, def. adds a cute little touch to the dress! I kept getting compliments on my style! Only complaint is that it is a little snug/tight under the arms. But I have athletic arms, so it may just be me. If you need something cute, classy and summer-y, this is it.

Colorful, cheery dress!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
I got so many compliments on this dress! The subtle yellow floral pattern is NEON yellow, but it was a happy color, and I loved it for my daughter's Communion party. The waist had no give, and I have a flat tummy, so I think it runs small. I wore the size 8, but then it was a little big on my shoulders. The length was appropriate for a Communion with children around, and I highly recommend this dress!

Great dress for work event

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I wore this dress to a work cocktail event. The dress code was "business attire" but this dress worked great-- it was fun but also appropriate for a work event with clients, and I got many compliments on it. Matthew Williamson uses UK sizing so I wore the dress 2 sizes larger than my usual size (they didn't have one size up available that day so I couldn't compare it). The fabric is not very stretchy but it fit great on me. I also ordered the pink ring suggested with the dress but it felt a little too cheap to wear to my event-- for a more informal event it would be great though.

A dress that makes you look stunning and ladylike.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
This dress is beautiful! In person the fabric seems to shimmer and the colors are really bright and vibrant. The dress was more conservative style than what I'd normally wear and it hit me right at me knees but overall I really liked it and got tons of compliments.

Neon Color so cool and trendy!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
This dress is beautiful! The neon colors pop and make it so modern while the cut is so classic and lady like. The bodice and waist is definitely on the tight side and the fabric doesn't have any give. Size up if you have any doubt! I liked the more snug fit on me overall, so chose the smaller of my two sizes and was still comfortable to move around and hold babies at the wedding I wore the dress to! Highly recommend this dress, it is such a great deal for this piece...do not pass it up!

I got compliments but I didn't think the fit was as flattering as I would like

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
Several people commented on the dress and told me they liked it. The front of the dress did not lie completely flat across my chest at points so I give it 4 instead of 5 stars.

The pops of color were perfect!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress to my best friend's rehearsal dinner. I wish I had a full length picture to show because this dress was perfection! I felt like a million bucks. I got so many compliments and my boyfriend mentioned quite a few times how much he loved this dress. I am pretty busty (32 DD), but had no problem fitting the top in the 6 or the 8 (I'm usually a 0 or 2). I went with the 8 because it was not as tight on my bum. And this dress really accentuates the bum in a good way. The colors are very bright in the sun and a little more muted inside, but the colors are definitely a bit neon. Glad the yellow of the body balanced it out. Loved it and hope to wear the green color soon!

I loved the dress and the style, but I wear a size 4 and probably would need a 10 or 12.

Perfect dress for summer wedding!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
First off I ordered the 6 and 8 but put in the wrong dates! RTR pulled a miracle and overnighted me the 6 and I ended up wearing the 6. It fit like a glove! If it had been any tighter I wouldn't have been able to sit. The tightest area for me was the waist but it made me look extra tiny! There's no slit in the back so it made it difficult to walk up stairs and you couldn't make large strides when walking. It hit me right above the knee so it was a classy length. It was a great choice for a wedding because it was just enough style without being overwhelming or stealing the spotlight. The flowers are much more neon than in the model photo but I thought it was cute. I paired it with gold strappy heels and gold earrings. You really don't need much jewelry for this dress. I definitely recommend this dress!

subtle fluorescent yellow mellowed out by hot pink

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Vacation
structured dress, nice weight material. beautiful colors that are unique and eye catching. even though the yellow is fluorescent (hard to see in the online pics), it pairs so well with the bright pink that you don't even give it a second thought. This designer does a great job of pairing bright colors that are eye-catching. I previously rented MATTHEW WILLIAMSON, Weeping Blossom Dress, great colors also. this dress was more conservative (longer). V shape back was elegant. The size 8 I wore was a bit worn out- you can see the material frizzing, one loop of thread even dangling. great style. wore this to a weekend getaway in wine country. paired with the Kate Spade Pink Hot Chip Statement Necklace, as suggested by RTR. I didn't get a backup but should have rounded the dose up to 10- there is no give in this dress so after eating, the size 8 was really tight at the waist. Normally I wear size 2 or 4 for dresses.

I loved this dress! Great for a summer wedding.

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
The fit was pretty much true to size, but it is pretty narrow through the rib cage. It's a great piece and is easy to dress up or dress down. The colors are brighter in person than they are in the pictures online. Can't wait to rent it again!

Nice colors, awkward fit

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Party
I rented this dress for a summertime engagement party for some dear friends. I liked the colors but don't think it did my body any favors. The shiny fabric made for some awkward angles in photos. A beautifully made dress but definitely not one of my top faves

This was a perfect dress for an early summer wedding in Florida

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
Runs SMALL. I usually wear a 0 or 2, but size 6 was the smallest size offered. Based on the other reviews that the dress ran small, I took it. Fit like a 0! Wouldn't wear before a big meal. But otherwise was comfortable and I received alot of compliments.

This dress was so beautiful for a spring wedding!

Size worn: 10
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I rented this dress for an outdoor/rustic barn style wedding. The colors were so beautiful for the spring. It was actually much brighter in person than in pictures - we joked that parts of it might glow in the dark. So be aware of that if you don't like things too bright. It was very comfortable. I ordered the 12 and 10. The 12 wasn't fitted enough but the 10 was a little right across the bust. It didn't make it uncomfortable but the fabric had no stretch to it (good to know if you are large chested). I was able to move around and dance a lot. I got a ton of compliments and felt very classy in it. I would definitely recommend this dress.

Great dress for graduation day!

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Other
This is a really cute and flattering dress. The material almost looks like a Chinese qi-pao. Very nice. Don't be thrown off by the sizing, I normally wear a 4 or 6, but I wore the 12. The fabric is not stretchy but falls nicely over an athletic build. It was a little baggy around the shoulders when I was sitting, but not too bad. Colors are great for a spring/summer daytime event. I definitely recommend renting this dress.
