Beautiful dress. Loved the color and print. Received lots of compliments on the dress!

The dress was beautiful. The picture doesn't do it justice. I does seem to run a little small. It was tight through the upper chest and I'm small chested. Also, I could take as long as strides walking like I usually do. I would have liked to be able to try the bigger size on but it wasn't available. I wish I could keep this dress because I loved it! :)

Stylist Review!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I wore this dress to a roof top party for Cinco De Mayo. The bright and vibrant colors were perfect for the occasion! It is versatile summer dress that can be worn with sandals or a fun pair of heels and is easy to accessorize! It ran a little fitted in the hips, so I would recommend ordering a size up for your free backup size.

Amazing, technicolor, mayan kaleidoscopic dream!

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Party
I usually wear a US size 8 and the UK equiv size 12 fit fine. The material is linen (I didn't notice that when I placed the order, but thought it was awesome) and the print is beautiful. The colors are vibrant but softened by the fabric. The skirt got a little wrinkled after sitting down for a meal, but otherwise the dress was comfortable.

There is no give to this dress, and the top fits like a corset. Fortunately, I am small-chested. What makes the dress great are the colors and pattern--it was so stunning. I wore this for one of my outfits for engagement pictures after my photog Amelia Johnson banned black/white. Glad she did!

One of my favorite rentals!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small

Loved this new Matthew Williamson. Wore it for a party that was color themed so it fit perfectly with the theme. Runs slightly small in the bust so I wore without a bra but one of my favorite rentals. Very comfortable, doesn't wrinkle and got lots of compliments!

Awesome pattern and color!

Size worn: 12
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
This was an awesome dress to travel with. I rented for my cousin's wedding out state. The material is thick enough that it won't wrinkle in your suitcase - even after multiple plane rides! The color and vibrancy of the dress was outstanding and it was really comfy for dancing. I would suggest sizing up for girls with larger chests. I couldn't get the 10 (US 6 - my regular size) to zip up past my chest. Other than that, fantastic choice for a dress!

I wore this dress for a rehearsal dinner on the beach. The colors are amazing!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
Like others, I found the fit true to size. You should know there is no give to the material. The color really makes your tan pop which I loved. The dress has pockets which are super convenient but caused a little "pooch" in the stomach area because it was extra fitted at my hips. I am very pear shaped so this probably won't affect someone tinied in the hip area. Overall, I would rent this dress again. LOVED!

Absolutely loved this dress. It's the perfect length and fit and it's super comfortable! my only problem was it was tight in the butt in my normal size, so I sized up and it fit great.

Unfortunately, the person who rented the dress before me ruined the size 6 so I was stuck wearing the 8. It was big so I had to pin it. This dress is so comfortable. The colors are vibrant without being obnoxious!

Stunning Design and Cut!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress to a wedding rehearsal dinner this summer. The bright colors and interesting design were perfect for a lighter summertime feel, while the cut and design of the dress was sophisticated and expensive looking. I rented the smallest size, and it was a great fit (I am a true 0... sometimes a 2). Would love to own this dress!

This dress was very comfortable and forgiving!

Size worn: 14
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
This was not the original dress I had intended to rent but the size I originally ordered in the dress I wanted was ruined the weekend before so I made a quick decision and chose this one. The fit was comfortable but I would not say it was overly flattering. I would recommend this dress for people with a smaller bust than I have. Overall was a fun back up and ended up working out alright.

This dress is sexy and sophisticated. I loved it.

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
The colors are a little more muted that they appear in the photographs, especially the bright pink around the neck and shoulders. The bust sizing instructions are accurate, as this dress is cut very narrow up top. I felt that it was also cut on teh narrower side all around. I usually wear a two, but I would have liked to try to 10 in this dress, the 6 was a complete non-starter. Even with the fit issues, I loved wearing this dress. The fabric was great for an outdoor August wedding in humid Washington, DC. The dress makes a real statement without being loud or revealing.

Great color and print!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: True to Size

I wore this for a rehearsal dinner and it was perfect! The color and pattern made it fun, but the cut was still appropriate for a church rehearsal. I got a ton of compliments and I would definitely order it again, you could wear it for so many different occasions. I wore with shoes similar to the picture but nude and I think that works better with the colors in the dress and for wearing it in the summer.

This dress was so unique and looked incredible on! I definitely stood out with this RTR gem!

The fit was great for my body type, but may run small for someone with a larger bust. I loved the length, especially worn with wedges! You barely need any accessories because the dress serves as one itself!

fun pattern!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
this dress was great. a lot heavier than i expected, but for a chilly fall outdoor wedding it was perfect. the 6 was a little too tight around my ribs, but the 8 was a little big. i wish there was a size in between, would have been perfect. i went with the 8 because i wanted to be able to move around, but definitely a little awkward in the sizing. otherwise a great dress!

AMAZING pattern, so unique, tons of compliments at my bridal shower!

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
A little big and kind of long (hit about 2 inches above my knees and I'm 5'3"), but the fabric is thick (but not hot) so it doesn't look terrible with a few extra inches around the waist. Beautiful colors and pattern, love the designer! Definitely recommend for a bridal shower or professional event.

wore this on easter sunday! beautiful!

Size worn: 14
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Other
I loved this dress, it was my mistake that I ordered the 6 (us size zero) instead of the 12 (us size 8) but luckily had ordered the 14 (us 10) as my backup! The 14 was a little big but I was still able to wear it. I would definitely order this dress again in the 12. It is very flattering in the waist area and the colors and pattern are so unique and beautiful! I would recommend this for something like Easter Sunday or a mother's day brunch because it looks slightly more casual in person. This would be great for a more casual rehearsal dinner or wedding as well! But not suitable for a black tie affair. It is also very comfortable! I think this dress could go for all body types!! But I do recommend sizing up only one size as it does run a bit small! Definitely renting this again!

Overall fit: True to Size

This dress fit pretty normally. I am usually a size 6, so I ordered the 6 and 8 based on the other reviews. The 6 was fine, but I probably would have felt like I had a better assessment of the size if I had compared to a 4 rather than the 8. The 8 was considerably larger than the 6.

I absolutely LOVED this dress! The colors were gorgeous and everyone else thought so too! Only thing was it was a little tight in the armpit area. I do have a large bust (36C) and run into this problem frequently, so most likely it won't happen to others.

Absolutely loved the print and cut of the dress, but it runs small, so size up!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small

I'm normally a size 4, but the brand runs small, so I ended up having to get a size 8 in the dress. It was a tad bit tight and the fabric doesn't give at all, but it was still a great dress for a summer wedding. I was able to dance all night in it!

Cinco de Mayo perfection!

Overall fit: True to Size

I really loved this dress and got so many compliments. I wore a 6 (us 0) in this dress and it fit great, a little snug around the shoulders. The pattern and colors are fun and bright, although it seemed slightly faded compared to the pictures. The material is also slightly different than how it is pictured, definitely more day time party appropriate.

The colors of this dress were just as beatiful and vibrant in person as they are pictured. I wore this to work and a nice dinner out with friends, and received lots of compliments on it. My only complaint is that I wish I had gotten a size 6 instead of the 8, which was a little baggy all around. Several of reviews said that it runs small and size up, however, I think that it runs pretty true to size.

It was tighter in the hips and the top, which is something I rarely have issues with. But the size 8 was way too big.

I am a pretty typical size 8 but with a larger bust. This dress fit LIKE. A. GLOVE. The only thing is that the colors are more muted in person than they look in photographs, but it's still perfect. I was really sad to have to send it back and would probably rent this exact same dress again.

Great pattern and flattering fit.

Size worn: 12
Rented for: Wedding
Gapped a little at the shoulders (as seen in the photo) but likely because I have a short torso. I got many compliments on the pattern and fit. Material was a little thick for an outdoor summer wedding, but luckily the color and print hid any sweat ha :)
