Perfect for the rehearsal dinner I attended!
Fit true to size. I have wider hips and a butt so it was VERY fitted around there and had to straighten it out once in a while so maybe it's good to also order it a size up if you have a similar body shape. Spanx helps too. Overall very comfortable and received lots of compliments.

The colors were beautiful! Great dress for daytime wedding.
A lot of the reviews stated that this ran small, however, I wished I had sized down for my second option. I'm usually a 16W and I wore the 16W that came. Honestly, I think the 14 would have been perfect. I wished the skirt had fit a bit more snug. It was slightly too loose but still looked great on. I got a ton of compliments on the colors, the lace and how "unique" the dress was. It it wasn't such a memorable dress, I would rent it over and over. Great first experience with RTR!

Did not end up wearing the dress, should have ordered a size down as I'm in between
Beautiful dress, good fabric, no stretch. Mid section ran a little large so I decided not to wear. I'm between a size 6 and 8, I should have ordered the size 6 instead.

This dress fit well. It was very flattering to my figure. I received a lot of compliments!
This dress fit great! I am 6'0 tall so it is very hard to find a dress that looks good and fits right. The fit of this was a little snug around the hip area- but that is how the dress was meant to fit but with that- it did make it a little restricting when it came to sitting and dancing- overall I was still able to bust a move YAY! The lace around the neck was a little itchy but not unbearable. I loved the top lace overlay -it was comfortable and easy to wear all nice. It is a heavier material so it really felt durable not like the lace would rip or easily stretch.

Dress is very snug through the hips but flattering. The color is gorgeous and photographs very well. The overall fit is modest but not frumpy. Despite being tight, the dress was comfortable for sitting and dancing.

This dress was made so well! It felt so expensive! I would recommend sizing up, the 12 fit well but I am usually a size 8-10.

Runs small, heavy material
Pretty dress but a lot more material than I was expecting. It was very heavy lace and at 5'6, the dress was a few inches above my ankles I was able to squeeze into the dress, but not comfortably. It is a summery looking dress, but is more suited for cooler temperatures bc of the thick fabrics and high neck.

Beautiful lace, returned, too large.
I was surprised to find the 14W was too large, I had ordered a 16W as the backup size, since I am extra large in the bust area (F or G cup). The fit issue was most apparent in the neck and armholes, which looked oddly large. Otherwise I might have worn it but it may have been too hot for an outdoor late spring event - the lace and lining are heavy. It was a beautifully made and expensive looking garment.

Did not end up wearing it. Rented it for my Birthday/Engagement Party. I loved the color and the quality, but it aged me, and was not flattering on me (Fiance did not approve). Best for tall and slender women.

STYLIST REVIEW!
Lovely Dress. The color scheme is really unique so the dress pops.Color is darker than pictured. I would recommend going up a size as your backup. This dress has NO stretch and is lined. Any undergarment can be worn with this dress.

The colors of this dress are wonderful and the fit is very flattering.
It is lovely and fit very well, especially around the midsection. The only awkward section is the mock turtleneck. On the model in the picture, the neck looks tailored against her neck, which is lovely, but on, it is a bit looser - almost floppy. That is my only feedback for something to wary of.

standout color in a sea of black
The dress was one size small so I had to immediately call for a size 8. They have the BEST customer service and two dress sizes were sent out the next day just in time for my event. The dress has no stretch, hid all problem areas, beautiful colors, and all around beautiful. Would recommend if you want to stand out from a sea of blacks!

Most Compliment Dress I've Ever Worn!
I have never received so many compliments on a dress before! The 16w fit true to size, though a bit loose in the bust and hips. A lot of the reviews mention there is no give to the dress, which is true, but I didn't have an issue sitting or walking in it, so maybe the plus size version is cut a little wider. I did wear a normal bra with the dress and it wasn't super noticeable. A nude bra would have been completely fine. Note it is on the longer side. I'd say it was about 3 inches below my knees.

Gorgeous!
I can't say enough good things about this dress. I wore it to a graduation and it was perfect. The colors are so vibrant and the lace is such great quality. My dress came with a seam out and a hole so RTR quickly sent me a new item. If your between sizes, size up with this designer and with this lace since it has no give. It's very classy and still on trend. Highly recommend!

So unique!
This dress is gorgeous, be ready for compliments. It fit perfect for reference I am 5'7", 132lb, 34b and I wore my usual size 4. The only drawbacks were that I had to completely unzip the dress in order to go to the bathroom and the neck was a bit itchy. Both of these things were minor problems and would not keep me from renting the dress again. I could not have been happier with my first rtr!

Oh my! Loved this dress!
I wore it for a Valentines Day date night....PERFECT! I loved the way this dress fit. I'm thin but very straight, sort of thick through the mid section. The top section of this dress definitely concealed that issue.

Great rental & great color
I rented this for my sorority's 50th anniversary party. I knew I wanted it immediately when I saw it, as our color is pink. It was perfect. Some reviews mentioned the fabric around sleeve & collar to be itchy but I didn't find that at all. The fabric is a bit thick, so may not work as well in summer or outside. It was fitted at hips & bust so may want to size up for backup. Due to thick fabric and structured material I did not need to wear a bra. It was comfortable all night & I received several compliments.

Classy and stylish!
Beautiful dress to wear to a more conservative wedding ceremony. In person, the raspberry color is even more beautiful than it looks online and the contrasting lace patterns are gorgeous together. I ordered size 8 and 10, and the 10 fit great and left me a little more room in the hips! I did not experience any itchiness with the lace. I was able to do a little dancing but nothing too crazy. Highly recommend for a more conservative event where you still want to feel stylish!

Felt heavy and makes you look heavy.
Didn't love this dress. Wasn't originally available in my size so ordered a larger size. The top half widens at the waist and so made me look wider in that area. Also material and lining is heavy. Overall didn't love.

Beautiful but
I understand I'm a little short so this review may be biased. I feel like it's not as flattering because I'm petite. I felt like the dress was a tad bit too long and didn't mold the body like I'm used to dresses fitting. I still received many compliments but that's because the dress is beautiful. Picking the shoes to wear was the tricky part. I would have gone with size 0 but given the situation, I decided to go for a looser fit so I wore the 2.

First time I've ever gotten a compliment on a dress I wore to a wedding!
Fits pretty true to size - my back and shoulders are broad so I chose 6 instead of 4. It looked elegant, different, fun, an all-around great dress.

Unforgettable dress for my University graduation!
This dress was really great! Arrived right on schedule and was clean and wrinkle-free! I am usually between a 2 and a 4, but I ended up wearing the 2. The dress was a great fit, but the neck fabric was very small and itchy. Other than that the dress was perfect! It was very easy to move around and sit in, and was a gorgeous addition of color to my graduation regalia!

I loved this dress
This dress ran true to size! I have big hips and a booty, so it was a big snug there but the next size up was way too big. I felt so pretty in this dress!

I wore this dress to a women's cancer awareness event. This dress was a hit! I received many compliments. I orders the 2 and 4. It fit perfectly after sizing down to the 2. I would recommend this dress for a professional event.

Loved the look of this dress
I loved the style of this dress and it looked great on - but there were a few draw backs. I was pregnant (but only about 4 mos) and there is HUGE variability in the sz 12 and sz 14W. I mean - really - like there should be a size in between. I ended up wearing a 12, because wearing this dress too big isn't an option; it needs to be snug to look good. The other consideration is that the fabric is very rough and the collar can be very constricting. Again - looks great, but if comfort is your thing, this may not fit the bill.

This dress was exactly what I was looking for. It was different and I got all kinds of compliments. My stomach looked flat and that is my problem area. The wedding was at a golf course and I stood out in the sea of navy and earth tone dresses without looking like I tried. I love this dress!!!

This dress was awesome. I felt like a million bucks. I got so many compliments. GREAT midi length. I'm 5'8 and it hit me just below the knees. If your neck and chest are easily irritated though I wouldn't recommend it.

Gorgeous colors and a pretty silhouette!
A stunning dress in person, the colors are so vibrant and the style (while definitely a more modest look) is classic. I did not actually end up wearing the dress, however, because while very pretty, the dress has zero to no give and I knew I would be dancing up a storm. I would've also have had to bring someone with me on bathroom trips to help with the tricky zipper. I am size 8 in normal clothing and went with the 10 in this. An 8 would've been too tight in the chest/ribs, as many designer dresses are on my body type, and the 12 I ordered as a back up was just too big and had too much fabric to be flattering.

Beautiful dress that is great mix of classic elegance, with a modern unique twist!
This dress runs small and there is NO GIVE in the fabric. I would suggest sizing up from the regular size you usually wear. The color and lace are beautiful and I got compliments all night! I loved the classic lace, with a modern and unique twist. The lace around the neck is very itchy but as long as it isn't too tight it is bearable. Another successful RTR event!!

Pretty colors
I'm 5'7" and typically wear a size 4. The dress was true to size. The top was almost a little too big because I'm fairly small-chested (32B), but the bottom fit well, so I don't think I could have gone down a size. My backup size was 6, so I didn't even try it on.

Gorgeous dress!
I absolutely loved this dress! I think it fits pretty true to size but there isn't much give in the lace. The colors are gorgeous, as are the lace patterns. I received countless comments throughout the night! I've always had great customer service with RTR! There was a hiccup with my tracking number and although I wasn't worried about receiving my order, RTR took the initiative to send me backups just in case.
