Big, boxy, stiff
Ordered this and a back up for a Pacific Northwest wedding in a national park. Sadly neither worked but I ended up wearing this one. The straps are long, the whole dress runs a size large, and the material was very stiff - no movement. It was also very low cut and difficult to wear a bra with. The color and lace were lovely and I wish it had fit. Still received a few compliments on how pretty the dress was, but I felt like I was swimming in it.

This cute, simple dress has just the right amount of punch with the color choice.
I was happy to find I fit the size 4, although the shoulder straps ran a bit larger than I though and kept falling off my shoulders. (For future wearers of this dress - make sure to wear a bra with thin straps that fit wide on the shoulders or wear strapless.) I really liked the neckline and it gave me some of the best cleavage I've had - small victory! I was worried the length would be too long and look frumpy, but it hit at mid-thigh, which is what I wanted. I was a little disappointed in the color; it was more mustardy than I thought it would be and not as bright and citrus as I expected based on the pictures. I styled the dress with a jeweled belt to give it a little more oomph and paired it with hot pink peep toe pumps, the Kate Spade Pink Lemonade Ring and Kendra Scott Natalie earcuffs.

Short and tight up top - not for large chested ladies
I've rented Monique before and usually have great luck - this dress was extremely short on my and didn't fit my chest - I've rented the ever after dress in the same size and it fit perfectly. I would recommend this for petite girls.

Tried this as 1 of 3 possible dresses for engagement photos
Overall, this dress was just...meh. From the photo you can see that it's a standard, lace dress, but given the ML label I expected a sleek fit and outstanding quality. The lace was soft and pretty, and the neckline was lovely, but everything else about the dress was just off. Though I'm a pear shape, this dress was too tight in the bust while the bottom of the dress swallowed me. It gave me waaaaay too much cleavage for the occasion. I tried belting it but no dice.

Reliable service!!
The lace on this dress is absolutely beautiful, and I was very glad it did not look look worn at all. I was surprised the color is much, much different than how appears on the model..it's more of a goldenrod, mustardy color - not the bright yellow that I was hoping for. As far as the cut...If you are petite, the length is perfect (which it was for me), but I could see it being too short for a taller person. I wore a strapless bra with it, and did not have issues with the squared shoulders of the dress falling or seeking uncomfortable, however, it is very low cut and i felt like I was constantly checking my cleavage all night. Overall, i liked this dress, it was just too low cut for my taste. Very reliable experience with RTR..will definitely use this service again for other events.

Pop of color!
I loved this dress - Simple design, but perfect for a friend's wedding. I am petite and have a smaller bust, so the proportions weren't perfect on me, but a little bit of clothing tape did the trick!

My favorite color is yellow and I definitely wanted to wear it for the wedding I attended.
The dress was a nice color and overall it fit well except for the straps which slipped from time to time.

Wore it on the day two of my best friends got hitched!
I loved the color of this dress, it was perfect for a summer wedding. I paired it with a black necklace and nude pumps. It was somewhat tight in the chest area and I'm usually a size 2, so more well endowed girls might want to size up. Also, might want to consider a strapless bra or some fashion tape to keep your bra straps hidden. I wore a regular bra and noticed a few times during the evening that my straps were peaking out a little bit in the back. Overall I really loved the dress and had a blast wearing it.

Couldn't wear it :(
I loved this dress! The color and fabric are lovely. Unfortunately, I couldn't wear this dress! The 4 was way too small in the chest and the 6 was way too big in the waist! Both looked silly on me. This will look great if you have the exact proportions for this dress, which unfortunately I do not.

Amazing & beautiful for a day in NYC
Great fit! I received many compliments! One con - after a few hours the straps were a bit uncomfortable as they cut across and rub at a part of the arm (close to the armpit) - this may cause chafing.

STYLIST REVIEW!!!
Adorable marigold yellow dress! This is a sweet dress perfect for spring! The fit and flare style is flattering for all body types and you can wear a standard bra! I am typically a 0-2. The size 2 fit with some room, but I would wear this size. The waist is fitted, and the sleeves were a bit small. I would recommend sizing up for back up. The dress is much more vibrant in color than the pastel yellow pictured on the model.

Great color for Easter! Be warned if you have a full bust it is very revealing!
The v-neck was a bit too low for my comfort since it was a church and Easter brunch dress, otherwise it fits to a t! The shoulder straps can get a bit awkward but the color and beautiful lace made up for it. This dress is also very easily dressed up with pearls or dressed down with a jean jacket. Loved this new take on a yellow dress!

Great fit! Super fun color!
This was actually a replacement dress that RTR sent instead of my original choice, and I am really glad it worked out so well. The yellow/gold color was great and perfect for a late summer wedding. The lace is great quality. I loved how the dress had a lower back. Also pockets!

Bright and classic - what a hit!
This was an alternate dress I had to pick the evening before my event because my original dress got caught up in a shipping snafu. The RTR staff was extremely patient and helpful as we browsed the website looking at available dresses at 8:30 the night before my event. This arrived at my doorstep at 9am the next morning and all problems were soled. I received a ton of compliments on this dress, both for the style and the color. It was easy to wear and comfortable to dance in. My only complaint was that it was a little tight in the bust area so it was slightly uncomfortable after a long time wearing it. Otherwise, a great, classic silhouette and fun, bright color!

Very cute dress for a shower.
This dress ran a little small and I think it would work best for someone with a shorter torso. I'm 5'9 and I generally wear a 4 but I wore the 6 in this dress because the body was very fitted. The dress also created a lot of cleavage, so I would recommend bringing along a sweater. But even though I felt a little more 'exposed' than usual, it was an adorable dress and I got a lot of compliments.

Beautiful color and lace. Perfect for a bridesmaid or wedding guest.
I was surprised that the 4 fit me well. I'm on the shorter side but the dress still fell above the knee, which is what I wanted. I did have to do a quick and easy stitch on the shoulder so that it fit and hugged my torso better. Monique Lhuillier can do no wrong.

Beautiful & bright lace
The color is prettier in person. Very flattering, had to pin the chest area so my bra wouldn't show but I could have also not worn a bra if I didn't want to. Cute and fun dress
