The best part of RTR is how easy it is. The dress shows up, you put it on and send back the next day
Definitely runs small for anyone that has some sort of hip action. I typically can wear a 4 and barely squeezed my lower end into a 6. Other than that, it's a nice conservative cut and easy to wear.

Love the feeling of vibrancy this dress conveys!
The colors and sheen of this dress make it incredibly striking...and the style is classically sophisticated. I found it too short for my usual tastes, but adjusted stockings and heels to accommodate for this. I should have worn more striking earrings ... but loved the RTR gold leaf bracelet selected.

A good cocktail dress.
I didn't end up wearing this dress because it runs small and was not flattering on me. The print was a lot brighter than the picture shown.

I felt like a Monet painting!
This dress is absolutely gorgeous! I wore this for a presentation I had to do for one of my GSLIS classes on Eric Carle, the man who wrote "The Very Hungry Caterpillar". The pattern and colors all matched his illusration style. Concerning the fit of this dress, just like the other reviewers stated, this dress definitely runs tight in the midsection. So if you do have a belly, aka if while you stand and you look about 3 months pregnant, purchase a larger size. I'm normally a size 6 but for this dress I had to wear a size 8 cause of my stomach. Other than that, it's very comfortable, and it hit me about 4 inches above my knees.

Goregous dress! Love the fabric! Size up if you aren't stick straight!
I had to wear a size up because the dress was tight around my legs & butt (Note: I have an athletic figure). The fabric has no stretch, so even though I could wear the 4, I knew I had to be sitting half the night (I went to a dinner) and wore the 6 so I felt comfortable. The top part was a little loose wearing the size up, but not too loose (my boyfriend didn't think so anyway) and I got compliments on the dress at the party.

Gorgeous dress, so flattering, perfect for a birthday in NYC
So I actually had this as my second style and wanted to wear it on my birthday for a day of shopping, small plates, etc. around NYC. I had some trouble with the zipper and it turned out to be defective and broke about an hour into the day. Luckily it was winter so I had it paired with a navy sweater (and brown tights and brown ankle boots) which covered the hole. And RTR was awesome about it when I told them. I think it was a problem with that zipper in particular, and the dress was absolutely beautiful! I've been looking for it to buy ever since.

Great and fun
Very comfortable fun party dress. I'm a size 6 and never wear an 8 but rented a 6 &8 based on the reviews. I ended up wearing the 8 because it was not as tight in the hips. Loved it! Prettier colors in person too.

Lots of compliments with this dress! Definitely a classic piece for any formal event.
I wore this for my boyfriend's Barrister's Ball and loved it! It is not too short and has an elegant boat neckline. This is a very classic dress. It IS tight around the middle, but with control top hose I had no problem. I wore it with the Silver Bright Spot Necklace from kate spade ny accessorie and it was a perfect accent! Perfect with simple, chic black heels. I would wear this dress again.

Really pretty and flattering dress - just small in the hips!
I LOVED the dress. The colors are beautiful and the cut is very flattering. I unfortunately did not wear it because it was a little snug in the hips - I find that happens a lot with Milly dresses. Thankfully, it was my backup dress so I still danced the night away in another RTR dress! My suggestion is if you are hippy like me, size up!

Perfect for a spring wedding!
I was worried about it fitting snug, but it actually fit very well. I am flat chested so I had a little extra space in the bust area. The fabric does not stretch but it didn't cause any problems for all the dancing I did at the reception! It hit at about the knee on me. I wore purple heels and the colors are very bright! I usually lean towards black dresses, but this dress was a perfect blend of color and that's what I was looking for!

Flattering cut, great material
The cut at the waist and pleats are extremely flattering - gave me a nice curvy shape. The material was really nice, and the colors bright. It's a classic dress which would work for many occasions.

Sexy fit, funky pattern.
This was definitely a little snug on the butt/hips area and I had to go with my back up size. I also thought the print made me look a little boxy on the top. It has a very slimming waist though.

Beautiful dress, runs very small
I rented a Kate Spade dress to wear to the Kentucky Derby, but it didn't fit. So this was actually a backup dress that I got in a 10 and 12. I took the advice of another RTR review of this dress that suggested getting two sizes up from my usual size (which is an 8.) The 10 was able to zip, but for a girl with curves, it was just too small to be comfortable. However, the 12 fit just fine and was perfect for the Derby. I'll also say that RTR was great about getting me this dress in exchange for the dress that didn't fit. Quick e-mail response even after hours and the dress arrived at 9:30 Saturday morning, just in time to put on and leave for my event! For this reason I'm very glad that I chose to have my original dress arrive 2 days ahead of the needed date instead of 1.

Great Dress for Dancing the Night Away
I read reviews stating how the fit would be a bit snug and I am a girl with hips so, I was a bit hesitant; however, I ordered the 12 and normally I wear a 10 and the dress fit perfectly. If you have a bigger bust maybe a C-cup then the dress may fit a bit tight on the upper half since the dress has no stretch at all. I wore this dress for a wedding and received many compliments. The dress looks a bit dark but the colors are vibrant. It is very comfortable and great for dancing.

This dress looked great and I received many compliments on it. It was perfect for graduation!
Love the dress! Just what I was looking for to wear at graduation. The dress was a little tight, (tightest around the hips) but fit well everywhere else. I wore the size 6 and there was a small snag in the back of the dress at the bottom. Besides that everything was perfect!

Fun colors!
This was a great dress to wear to a daytime summer wedding. As other people have mentioned, it's very tight around the hips. I almost wore the 2 because of this, but I'm glad I didn't because the 2 was a little loose on top, and dancing in the 0 didn't end up being a problem.

The dress runs a bit small. Sadly, I was not able to wear this as planned and I wasn't able to get a second size because it was my backup dress!

Something different!
I really enjoyed this dress! I receive a lot of compliments on the colors and it was appropriate for the weddingI attended. The only draw back is that I could tell it had been worn because the hem didn't lie flat, as it wasn't sewn all the way through. It was also slightly tighter than other 12s I have worn, but I have never worn anything by Milly, so now I know! It was still roomy around the chest, though.

Beautiful fabric!
I wore this to a summer rehearsal dinner. The fabric looks and feels beautiful. It was pretty on, but I gave it only 3 stars because the fit wasn't quite right. It was fitted in the hips, but a little loose around the stomach and chest. It was still flattering and I would recommend it for a nice date or party.

Too short for me!
I am 5/4" and small boned. Sometimes I wear petites. I love Milly and both own and rent their dresses, usually fitting well into either a 4 or 6. I rented the 4 in this dress with a 6 for back up and both came to about my mid-thigh. They seemed unusually short and because it was for a warm weather event, I couldn't wear tights. I didn't feel comfortable in either and returned them both.

Classy!
I'm reviewing this for my niece (18 yo) who wore it to my tea party themed bridal shower with black tights and a fascinator hat (I wore the Trina Turk dress, also from RTR). I would say this is the kind of dress that you see a girl in and you think to yourself "hm that's a cute dress, I wonder where she got it from (because I haven't seen it at H&M, Express, Macys...)" There is a side panel thing that really adds an interesting element to the dress. The colors are vibrant but not super loud so you can wear it during the day or evening. It doesn't have any stretch so I would say it runs true to size; my niece is busty/ athletic but I think this dress would work with someone who is smaller on the stop and has some hips. To sum it up, I wouldn't say this dress is a head turner or have people stumbling over themselves to look at it but I would say this is a great dress for a work event, casual wedding, bridal/ baby shower, or even a date! I asked me niece and she said she really liked it.

Terrible fit
The colors on this dress are really nice but i was pretty disappointed with the fit and i ended up not wearing it. The bottom of the dress was very tight, which would be fine if it had some stretch but it was very stiff, and the rest of the dress was just awkward and bunchy in all the wrong places. If you have narrow hips and you're okay with some bagginess on your back and lower belly, then the dress should be fine for you, but if you want a sliming, waist defining, and comfortable dress (which I'm assuming most of you do), then stay away!

embrace the imperfections of the dress and try to make it work out!
I read the reviews and ordered one size up for my first size and two sizes up for my back up. It's all about finding the right fit for the hips and the chest. Size 6 was fine for my hips but the top of the dress was a bit too big. I hid the imperfections by wearing a full body shape wear with padded bra underneath. I really love the colors of the dress, and though the fit was not perfect, it was worth the extra effort to make it all work out.

Pretty dress, but didn't fit great.
This is now my second Milly dress. Women with hips: it's true, the material doesn't stretch and it runs fairly narrow below the waist. I ordered an 8, which didn't fit over my hips at all. The 10 probably would have fit well, but they didn't have one so I wore a 12. I'm shorter, so it was definitely too big and long through the top. Also, I'm not sure if it was because it was big or it's just the dress, but the skirt kept twisting around, and the side zipper kept coming towards my navel. My friends claimed you couldn't tell because of the ruching and the colors, but I felt like a little kid fidgeting trying to fix it. Three stars because I really liked the dress, but I don't think I was wearing the right size, and didn't like how it fit.

Fun dress.
I wore this dress to a friend's birthday party. I am petite and have wider hips. The dress fit great on the bottom. The top was a little loose especially in the back, but it wasn't too noticeable. I'd adjust it now and them. It was good at hiding the tummy area. I loved the print! I got lots of compliments.

Great pattern!
I wore this to a wedding brunch. They didn't have a size 10 so I rented an 8 and a 12. The 8 was really small in the hips so I ended up wearing the 12 - a 10 would have been perfect. This dress would fit best on someone with a larger chest and narrow hips.

Very sophisticated & fun
I wore this to a beautiful wedding at an art museum so I aired on the side of conservative because of the venue. I loved the colors in this dress, and the design seemed very painterly. Unfortunately the first size I wanted was unavailable, but in true RTR form, customer service let me chose a backup dress of my choice to make up for it. I ended up sticking with the larger size of my first choice, so it was a little roomy around my middle. I added a small belt to bring it in, and finished with a chunky necklace and & heels. It was light weight for a warm summer wedding. Very pretty, I would rent again.

The dress was beautiful, but had no stretch and didn't fit my body type, even after going up one size. The top portion was too large and the bottom portion too tight to wear.

Beautiful Dress!
This dress was awesome! Wore this for the rehersal dinner for my sis's wedding. This was the perfect length and it fit in all the right places. The pattern was fun but not outrageous. Everyone complimented on it and it looked awesome with my blond highlights and sun glasses. I will say that it the fit is on the tighter side. I thought the 4 was going to totally work but the 6 was a bit nicer to move in the hip area. It was a bit gappy in the chest area but that's to be expected but didn't look crazy. Great dress for the event and it was fun!

Fun dress for a benefit
This dress gave me curves, which I usually don't have, so I thought it was great! It was very fitted everywhere above the butt on my body. I thought this dress was a perfect choice for my work's annual benefit event - it was very cute and fun but still covered me up!

N/A
Didn't wear this dress, only tried it on. I found it runs big in the bust, torso, and backside (bum) areas. I ordered a size 4 and a 6 as my backup size based on the reviews I read about it running small but I wish I would have ordered my normal size 2 as it probably would have fit better. Great fabric and the pattern is gorgeous! Viewing it online does it no justice - this dress is amazing.
