Dress color was everything!
This dress was amazing! I wore this to an outside September wedding.. I felt like Belle from Beauty and the Beast! It ran a tad small so I ended up wearing the 8R (usually wear a 6R). Got a ton of compliments. The fabric is thicker, elegant, and definitely unique. Would highly recommend!

Absolutely stunning dress!
Got compliments all night - does run small in the ribcage but larger in the bust. Pockets were adorable!

Chocolates in my pockets!
The dress was super comfortable, easy to walk and dance in. I ordered 6R and 4R as backup. I wish it had petite sizing so that the high part of the dress could hit above my knees, but it looked alright. I could have worn the dress without the bra since it did have a bra within the dress. However, I liked the my own strapless bra over the loose bra within the dress. Even without a bra my girls would have stayed put. I always have a tough time trying to find dresses to fit my bust since I am usually 30DDD - 32DD, but this dress fit my bust and ribcage nicely. It was tight as I needed it to be to pig out and breathe. My fiance had a tough time trying to zip it over the bra but he eventually got it up. The best part of the dress was the pockets! I stashed chocolates in my pockets for snacking. I did accidentally pop the tab at the back where the zipper ends only because I tried to take it off myself instead of having my fiance take it off for me. Since part of the wedding was outdoors, I was sweating a lot since the dress is quite thick and I was under the sun.

Fun color and funky hem
I loved the fabric of this dress (very sturdy). It was definitely a bit snug -happy to take off at end of night - yet the extra size up was too big. Probably best if you don't have a large rib cage... That said I still loved the dress and would rent similar style again.

Striking, stand out dress!
This was one of the most beautiful dresses I've ever worn. The color and material were both gorgeous. The dress is very feminine and gives you great shape. It's impossible not to feel pretty in this one!

It was very snug up top. I was a little worried it wouldn't zip but made it work and it certainly sucked me in. The material and color were beautiful.

Beautiful dress, Amazing fit!
I absolutely loved this dress! Although I have a small bust, I had no issue with the dress slipping throughout the evening even with dancing. I didn't wear a bra at all. The fabric of the dress has nice weight to it, making if more formal. The high low hemline is elegant on this dress and made worrying about heel height unnecessary! I got many compliments, many of which said I looked like Belle from Beauty and the Beast.

Beautiful bridesmaid dress, but runs small.
The dress runs small and is difficult to zip. Highly suggest undergarments for a more slimming look. Dress can become uncomfortable as the day goes on, but photographs great. Super cute dress, pockets a plus!

Beautiful yellow dress!
The fit couldn't have been more perfect! The length was perfect! I wore it with pearl stud earrings, gold and single pearl necklace and a ring and that was enough with this showstopper! The only con for me was that the boob area was a little big so I just wore sticky boobs and it was perfect!

Disney Princess Style
Don't let anyone tell you this dress is less than perfect. I rented this for a "black tie optional" wedding and felt amazing all night. I typically have bad luck with strapless dresses as I have considerable boobs (34DD) but this dress fit like a comfortable glove and played to all of my strengths. My partner wishes I would buy this dress outright!

Modern day Belle!
I got called a "modern day Belle" from Beauty and the Beast and a little girl thought I was a princess. Great dress, great color. Very well made and has internal corset. Would absolutely rent again.

Made me feel like the BELLE of the ball. A nod to Beauty and the Beast.
I wore this to a wedding that was a themed wedding - Disney Bounding. I wanted to not wear a costume but a wear a dress or gown that paid homage to the theme. I've been eyeing this dress forever and wasn't sure how the golden yellow was going to look against my skin and I am glad to know that my fears were all for nothing. The shade of yellow was perfect for me. I ended up wearing 6R instead of 4R since it tends to run small. Would definitely rent this dress again.

Really pretty!
I loved this dress! Super thick material and very comfortable. I should have worn the smaller size (4), but I accidentally only packed the 6 for an out of town wedding. I had to pull it up a lot, but it fit fine everywhere else.

Super flattering and comfortable
LOVED this dress, you definitely need someone to zip the back for you as the zipper gets stuck at the seam but once I had someone do it it went right up. Live the waistline, I felt like it was really flattering. I also loved that I could go braless. Dress was comfortable and easy to move around in.

Beautiful black tie wedding!
I loved this dress...once I was able to get the right size. It runs very small, especially through the bodice as it's corsetted. I usually wear an 8R, and, based on other reviews, went up to a 10R. I still could not get it zipped over my post-baby ribcage. Fortunately, RTR was able to overnight me a 12R which fit great. I loved the pockets, and it was such a fun color. Great to stand out in a sea of black dresses. I wore it to a formal wedding, and I definitely felt dressed appropriately. Great dress, wish it was mine forever!

Belle!
I received so many compliments and felt amazing in this dress. It was a little awkward in the bust- there was so odd puckering in the fabric that looked a bit odd in the wrong angle. I was able to dance and jump around at the reception with not issue of it falling down. Loved the pockets!!!! The fabric is excellent quality even after being worn to probably many weddings this season ;)! It's a true winner and stunning!!!!

so many compliments
I got so many compliments on this dress, including that I looked like Belle from Beauty & the Beast. I wore the size 6, it fit perfectly but it was a little snug when sitting down. There's a corset thingy around the ribs and by the end of the night I was ready to get it off. Maybe I should have gone a size up, but it looked amazing and I would def rent again.

The color pop!
Great bright color for the summer! I would never buy this dress and put it in my closet, but was so happy to rent! I ordered 4 and 6 size, 4 was a bit big on me. I guess 2 would be perfect. I ended up wearing bra underneath to keep it tighter. The fabric is a little bit heavy if the weather is hot, but we got a perfect day, it wasn't too hot

I was told that I looked like Belle all night long!
I was deciding between a 2 and a 0, but am flat-chested and decided to go with the 0 because it fit more snugly around the bodice. The fit and the fabric added elegance to an otherwise simple silhouette. I chose to wear nude heels. Finally, the built-in shelf bra made it easier to wear, and allowed it to feel even more secure. Great option if you are flat-chested and want a feminine-looking silhouette. Also, the pockets were fantastic!

You need this dress in your life
This was my 3rd time renting from RTR and every dress I rent gets better and better! I wore this dress to a black tie optional summer wedding in Philadelphia. It was perfectly appropriate for the dress code and I got SO MANY compliments! Belle of the Ball for sure. It fit true to designer size. I usually wear size 8/10 pants but always wear a size 12 dress from RTR and this was the case with this dress as well. If you're on the fence about renting this, DON'T BE! The boning was a little worn and one piece poked my ribs a little, but I wore a corset-length bra underneath which was very comfortable. And last but not least: POCKETS. That is all.

Flattering cut, vibrant color!
Dress was exactly what I expected - bust was still a bit loose so if you are smaller in the chest area, beware that the top runs a but big. But everything else was perfect! Loved the cut of this dress - extremely flattering strapless style and felt like a princess the entire night :)

I felt like Belle from Beauty and the Beast. The fabric of the dress was beautiful and the pockets were super functional. The shape of the dress was very complimentary. If you have a larger chest you might want to size up. Overall I would recommend this dress.

Loved this dress! Felt glamorous all night long! Perfect for a summertime outdoor wedding.
I ended up wearing my back up size because the 4R was too small around my chest. But the 6 fit perfectly! Still a little bit tight around the chest but definitely did not have to worry about pulling it up all night! And no bra needed with this dress (heck yeah). Loved this dress and cannot wait to rent my next one from RTR!!

I wore this for my rehearsal dinner. I'm between a 12 and 14 right now and the 14 was snug but zipped up :) Lots of compliments. I usually don't wear yellow but couldn't pass up the chance to be a modern day Belle. Would definitely recommend.

Gorgeous dress! Got comparisons to Belle from beauty and the beast all night
The color was beautiful, it fit well and stayed up. It's a big of a thicker material and it ran just a tiny bit small, I had to use the bigger of the 2 sizes I orderd. Very flattering.

Best strapless dress I've ever worn. The boning inside the dress is perfect -- it stayed up all night without creating any awkward tightness under the arms. I wore this to a springtime black-tie-optional wedding and got so many compliments!

Bright and beautiful
The fit of this dress was great! It was wonderful that it had the built in bra and pockets, too! The color was gorgeous and dress overall was perfect for a wedding. My only word of caution would be that since it is a heavy material, it can be very hot at a wedding that is completely outside including the reception on a hot summer day. Otherwise, it was a fun first RTR experience. I look forward to my next rental!

Won best dressed of the night!
Wore this to a formal wedding in July. I'm between a 4/6. The 4 fit perfectly on my waist but was tight in the back so I went with the 6. The boning in the dress hurt a bit while dancing, but easily ignorable. The color is vibrant and great material quality. Rent this dress, definitely stood out in a sea of red and black dresses. So many compliments and had a few guests tell me I won't their best dressed of the night!

Eye Catching for a Summer Wedding
This dress was wonderful! I received several compliments from wedding guests and even strangers on the street! I was the only one in yellow, which made me feel pretty special. I'm almost always a 6 in RTR dresses, but absolutely needed an 8, which fit perfectly. I'm only 5'4" and the length on the dress, with heels, was perfect. In my particular dress, the boning seemed to be cutting through the lining a little which poked me throughout the night, but I eventually was able to ignore it. All in all, I felt beautiful and had no trouble dancing all night long!
