I felt very special wearing that dress, it was very flattering and comfortable to use.

The fit is very flattering and comfortable to wear move around and dance. It comes out great on pictures and it was easy to pick up my accessories to go with it. This dress was a great choice for the occasion ( work holiday party)

A little short

I rented this as a second dress and ended up not wearing it. While the size 2 fit it was definitely a little form fitting (but felt like it had stretch) and is short! I loved the colors of the dress, but it was a little too short for me to wear. I may try it again for a less formal affair!

Wish the bigger size was available...

So I was only able to get this dress in a 4 and it was just a bit too tight. I normally wear anywhere from a 2-6, just depends. I could've worn it but felt like I would've been uncomfortable all night as it was riding up a little. There is also a strange mesh around the arms that was kind of itchy. The dress itself was beautiful and if I had had the 6 it would've been great for the party I went to!

Beautiful dress. Perfect for a holiday party!

Beautiful dress! Perfect for the holidays. It's short! If you have long legs like me this may not be the dress for a conservative affair.

Very short for a 5'8" girl with long legs. Wished it was a little longer. Otherwise it was gorgeous.

Just a little short for a tall girl. I wish it came a little longer. But it was gorgeous and fit in all places.

Loved it!

After spending much time reading the very helpful reviews on this dress, I was sold. I went with the size 6 and backup 8. The 6 felt great with my Shapley body. It's hard to gage what size I am. My hips and thighs are bigger for my body, so what fits up top doesn't always fit on the bottom. This dress was an exception. Everything fit just right. The only thing I was concerned about was how short it felt when I sat down. Just be sure to smooth it out before sitting. And don't bend over.

Fun party dress

I wore this to a wedding that my boyfriend was in. The dress was tight but still easy to move around in. The pictures don't do the color justice. It's more of a mermaid sparkly green and not turquoise.

Runs small, so plan to wear a size up - especially if you have hips! Length is great if you're on the short side.

Fun and festive!

I wore this for a work Christmas party - it was fun and festive. It did run small and was shorter than expected. RTR had emailed me to tell me it may be damaged and to select another dress for free. They ended up sending me my original order, plus the other dress of my choice and a free purse for my trouble. Well done RTR!

perfect dress for a holiday party!

I ordered this dress in 2 sizes (6 & 8). This dress does run a little tight in the hips and bust, so the 6 was too tight, but the 8 was perfect. Hugged all the right areas and made for a great hourglass shape that made my husband say "WOW!" when he first saw me! The green sparkle layer was so pretty and just made the dress that much more pretty! I received so many compliments all night! I would definitely recommend this dress for a winter occasion!

The green iridescent layer is so bright and festive! Great for my first RTR experience!

This was my first RTR experience and it was great! The dress arrived a day in advance so I could try it on. I ordered a 6 & 8 and didn't even try the 6 on because it looked way too small. The 8 fit well but was tight through the hips and waist. If I had ordered the 10 as my back-up size, I think I would have been better off. If you're a borderline 8 like I am, I would recommend ordering up for your back-up. Other than that, the dress was great and I got tons of compliments. The green under-layer looks so much better is person and is really bright/shinny. Perfect for a cocktail attire Christmas Party. If this dress went on sale, I would definitely want to buy it and would rent it again for a similar occasion.

Lovely Dress - Great Silhouette

Wore this to my fiance's holiday party and I felt perfectly dressed for the occasion. Great silhouette. I also loved the detail of the lace and was pleasantly surprised to see that the teal layer was sparkly/ iridescent instead of solid. I ended up wearing a 10 since the dress did NOT have any stretch to it whatsoever, but that could have been because it's a new style. Heads up, there's at least 3 layers of fabric: lining, teal sparkly layer, and the lace which was somewhat stiff. I felt sexy in it without being over the top. You will need a racerback bra since the straps taper in more than it appears on the model. Overall, I received lots of compliments and I was very pleased with this selection.

Too small and too short.

This dress was very pretty in person, but unfortunately, it ran extremely small. I'm usually a size 6 or 4. I ordered the 8 as a backup and it was still too small to the point where it would ride up when I walked. I'm also on the tall side and I think the length of this dress was inappropriate for a wedding. I ended up having to buy a different dress and was unable to wear this one.

This was the dress I had my hopes set on but it was way too tight and very short on me. RTR was awesome enough to overnight me another option. Great service!

Wedding rehearsal dinner

I am normally an 8 with a Pear shape. The dress has very little give. I have larger hips...the 10 fit perfectly. If I would have worn the 8, it kept riding up and I kept having to pull it down. I loved this dress though. I got so many compliments on it and I would definitely wear it again. The underlay is a little more shimmery than in the picture but it's still a beautiful dress.

Pretty dress but it was very small and very short.

The fit was too tight and too short for an elegant wedding. Loved the sparkly green underlay and the lace. Wish I would have gotten one or two sizes up.

Sparkly!

I didn't end up wearing this dress (it was one of my back ups for a damaged dress), however is is gorgeous in person! The sparkle is more turquoise than green and it definitely has the bling characteristic to it. I prolly would save this one for more of a party (birthday or New Years, perhaps) than a wedding.

This dress was perfect for the black tie optional wedding I attended!

The 4 fit me perfectly but i ended up wearing the 6 because it was a little longer. Like other comments the dress is a little short but I was very comfortable in the size I chose. I'll definitely look for this designer for future rentals!

amazing fit!

Definitely size up if you are a more curvy or athletic shape! There is not a lot of stretch but its form-fitting and will hug your body perfectly in the right size! It was incredibly easy to wear and dance in and everyone kept complimenting me on the dress and color. Definitely wanted to keep this one--it was a favorite.

Beautiful dress, but runs very small

I ordered this as a back up dress for a fall wedding and didn't end up wearing it because it was too small. I think it would have been a great option if I'd gone a size up.

Beautiful combo of lace and glitter

I rented this dress for a close friends wedding. The green underlay was bright and sparkly and paired nicely with the black lace overlay. The bust is super tight so I sized up to accommodate my chest. it was a bit loose in the tummy but I was comfortable and it still looked great.

Very sexy

I usually wear a size 4 but found the section of the waist very tight - granted I've put on a few little pounds over the past few months :) I wore this dress to a wedding and it was perfect! I loved the color and it was just short enough to be comfortable. I would definitely rent again!

The dress and the necklace worked perfect together! Can't wait to rent the runway again!

The fit was just a bit snug and a little short, but it still worked. The dress was even more beautiful in person. Plus the necklace was to die for!

Super, awesome, amazing; BUT glad I sized up

The highlight: This green and black beauty was so perfect that when I posted a pic of my husband and me on FB, I had friends coming out of the woodwork to say how good I looked. The lowlight: The dress is short and tight in the hips/thighs. I could fit into the 4, but I wore the 6 and felt great all night. If you're a redhead, you can't go wrong in this dress. A stylist picked the Kate Spade Clink Clink necklace, and it was stunning.

Perfect for an early spring wedding!!

Got a 2 and a 4, ended up wearing the 4. Fit perfectly and was super comfortable! It was a bit short when I sat down, but other than that it was great. I got a lot of compliments on it, and I will definitely use RTR again and again!

I had a great night, dress really shows off legs!!!

I got a ton of compliments on this dress! Just a couple things I would point out tho: 1) if you have long legs, this dress is assuredly a 'mini-dress'. I had to look up the etiquette for dress length before I decided to wear it, I stood with my arms by my side, the hem was right at my finger tips. In the photo, the dress on the model is shown at least another hand's length beyond her fingertips... 2) I had judged from the photo, the contrasting colored fabric beneath the lace was a 'satin' type, but it's actually a gritty glittery type. STILL ELEGANT! But just a tip, in case you're trying to match jewelry/purse/fingernail polish.

Perfect for a Saturday evening wedding!

I kept going back and forth between the 6 and the 8, because they both fit well. I finally decided on the 8 because I knew I would be eating and drinking all night so I would needed some wiggle room :) By the end of the night it did feel like it stretched out a tad, but didn't look that way when I checked in bathroom. Great length, the waist hit me perfectly, and it was a great cut for my broad shoulders! I have a fuller bottom but a much smaller waist and this really accented it :)

Great looking dress, but too small

The dress was pretty, but way too short and too small. Typically I wear a size 4 or 6, but both sizes were tight and too short. It was not suitable to wear to a wedding. It may have been okay to wear to a NYE event, but it was too tight to wear during a late day-early evening wedding.

The dress was great!

The dress was beautiful but not very breathable and ran a little small. It was a great color and goes with a wide variety of accessories. It was a little shorter than I expected, and I am a short person to begin with. The lining of the dress is a satin material and does not have a lot of wiggle room.

Beautiful Dress!

I'm glad I read the reviews for this dress as I was better able to figure out what to expect! I was forewarned that this dress had no give and that the layer under the lace overlay is a little cheap looking. However, I wore the larger size I ordered with some shapewear and was ready to go! I wore this to a wedding in May and it was perfect. It is dressy enough not to require too much in terms of accessories. I got plenty of compliments and was very happy with my rental! Thanks RTR!

not what i expected

The lace on this dress is beautiful and the cut is really flattering. However, what I imagined was the green base to this is actually a blue-green glitter material. The lace makes it better but overall the base layer makes it look cheap. I can't get the thought of my first grade mermaid halloween costume out of my head when I look at at. I was looking forward to a green dress to wear to my boyfriend's Christmas party but unfortunately don't think I will be wearing this dress : ( Maybe the color would be more appropriate for a NYE party. For sizing, I am typically a size 6 in pretty much anything, this 6 was very tight through the torso/rib cage. I should have read the sizing recommendations because it did say best for A-C cups sizes. I ordered up for backup and would have needed the 8, especially for any eating and dancing. Smaller busted ladies would be safe with their true dress size.
