Wore this dress to a rehearsal dinner and it was a big hit! Beautiful in person and amazing fabric.
This dress is easy to wear and a beautiful shape! Perfect length/age appropriate for late 20's early 30's girls! Only negative is I was unable to wear a bracelet or necklace as it snags the lace overlay.

I loved how warm this dress was for an evening wedding in California. Perfect color too!
I am approx. 107# and 5'2 and size 0 was too fitting, but 2 was comfortable for eating, dancing all night. I worried it would hang too low, and it was perfect. I wore with black shoes without necklace or belt and it was perfect. Loved it did not need special bra. The pockets were an extra detail I loved because I could hold my phone inside. Would recommend for anyone attending a fall wedding or evening wedding near the coast, like me.

Love the lace
I rented the Alice dress earlier in the year. Therefore, when I had an upcoming wedding invitation and the dress I wanted to rent was not available this was an obvious choice. the Dress fits very well over my large bust and is flatter at the hips. Love the pockets too! Will continue to rent this dress in every style and color available.

flattering and pretty!
dress is heavy material. Which was fine for me since it wasn't too hot, but I would not recommend this dress for an outdoor event on a warm day! The zipper was hard to zip up past the seem, but we got it. I loved the way it smoothes over the tummy and is very flattering. And it has pockets!

LOVE
LOVE. Ended up wearing 1 size up bc of sleeves (I have big arms / guns); typically 12, wore the 14. Felt pretty and feminine, and wasn't constantly tugging to make sure my boobs or butt were hanging out. The best part: no special underwear required! I don't typically don't leave reviews for stuff but I know how helpful peer dress reviews are on this site.

Beautiful, Classy Dress!
This was a beautiful dress, the teal color is more bright and vibrant than in the picture. The lining is a golden nude color and is very heavy/thick. I wore this for a wedding on a cool/rainy April night in CA, so the weight of the dress was okay. Would not have been comfortable in warm weather. The sleeves were a bit snug, but I felt like that sucked everything in, in a good way. I wore the 8 instead of the 10 as it just looked more fitted, the 10 made me look bigger. I paired it with nude heels and a nude belt at the waist. Very flattering!

Pretty dress.
Fit was very good, but the pockets looked funny (as if they were jutting out) and is quite noticeable if you look closely. Otherwise, it was a pretty dress and color.

Loved the pockets! Received several compliments on this dress.
As other's mentioned, the shoulders and arms run a little tight. I'm a pretty true-to-size 8 and went with the 10 because of that. Form fitting. Rich, pretty color. LOVED the pockets. The chain on my clutch DID keep snagging the lace, so be careful. The material underneath is more of a gold than a nude. Very pretty dress.

Fit well, was very comfortable and lightweight, and has pockets! (I love a dress with pockets). Flattering cut and I received many complements, even from people I had never met before! I was very happy with this selection.

Stunning emerald green
I'd previously rented the blue one for a vacation and loved the dress. This dress is exactly the same just a different color. I loved it and it was perfect for a birthday dinner. It does get a little warmer because of the thick fabric. Will rent again!

Great color, perfect for an evening with a chill in the air.
I wore this to a wedding where the day was 75 and the evening was windy and around 60. Though the dress is lacy, it is still thick, so it was good for shielding from the chilly winds (except that it got colder than that at night and I still needed to get a jacket). I opted for a dress with sleeves because the wedding was in England and the weather said that it would be around 60s in the evening. I didn't want to wear a shawl or jacket either. Dress thickness was perfect. Received a ton of compliments on the color and style of the dress. It could not have worked out more perfectly. The only thing I would change about my outfit is my shoes. I opted for nude shoes, but I would have gone with a different color shoe if I had more time to shop for shoes. I wrote it with a necklace that was recommended to rent and it matched well, though the necklace did snag on the lace a little bit and was a bit of a nuisance. Other than that the outfit was a big hit. I will be renting again for another wedding in September.

Cute but a bit smug through the shoulders
I rented this for a christening in the winter, and the color and style were perfect. I'm a bit tall, and it was cold, so I wore leggings under it, and it worked well with boots. However, the shoulders and arms were a bit tight, and it seemed others had the same issue, because there were tiny tears in the lining.

This is a beautiful dress, but looked better in the picture than on me.
I wore this dress for a date night. I felt like a million bucks in it, and still think it's a gorgeous dress. But, it just didn't fit me very well. I'm 5'2", about 100 lbs and flat chested. This dress has boning/shape to the bust, and it was a little awkward on my small/flat frame. This is not an uncommon problem, though, so I don't blame the dress. The inner shell is soft and comfortable, the outer layer (green) is less smooth. Great length and shape otherwise.

Family wedding
Love this dress! I wore it for an outdoor Florida wedding in the late-winter. It was the perfect weight for the time of year but would not be good for an outdoor event in the heat. It is lined and high-quality but also very heavy because of that. Runs true to size and got many compliments on it. If I could buy this dress, I would!

Stylist Review
This dress is vibrant and comfortable! The lace was elegant and made me feel beautiful. I have a smaller bust and it was a bit big on me, but the waist fit comfortably. I usually don't like dresses with longer sleeves, but I felt like I could breathe in this dress and did not mind! Paired with a belt or cute earrings, this dress is a show stopper!

I actually didn't end up wearing this dress. I got 2 others that were better suited for my weekend.
The skirt is much bouncier/fluffier than I thought it would be. I only tried the dress on and wore it in my house for a few minutes and it was WARM. The wedding I was going to was outdoors and I figured this dress would just be too hot to wear. Definitely more suited for colder months but would definitely rent again, even for a fancy date night!

Cute dress but bunchy hips
The dress was a beautiful color and fit very well on top. The sleeves are beautiful and weren't too tight for me. Comfortable. The only thing I didn't love about it was that the pockets made the hips bunch out in a sort of unflattering way I thought. Otherwise beautiful!!

Very comfortable/ beautiful fit.
I received a lot of compliments with this dress. The fit is very comfortable yet elegant. The color is beautiful! I am 5'5 115lbs and the size 4 fit perfectly. I am thin and the sleeves fit perfectly so I can see how women with bigger arms see this as a con.

The dress was extremely comfortable and I got tons of compliments.
I normally would order a 4 and 6 but after reading the reviews I decided on a 6 and 8 and I'm glad I did. I have bigger arms and the dress is a little tight around the arms so the 8 worked perfectly. The pockets were my favorite part :)

Great dress, easy fit, has pockets!!
I wore the 14, it fit a very *tiny* bit big, but not noticeably. Well constructed with many layers, I chose it because I assumed the wedding we attended (on 6/11/16) would be indoors and A/C would be cold. BUT NO. It was all outside, so I was BAKING in this dress - however, that is not the dresses fault, it really is lovely. I got lots of compliments on it, and felt gorgeous. Length is great, goes well with a neutral shoe, and you can accessorize several ways. I also expected the sleeves to be too wide or too tight, but they were good, too. Well made, for sure.

Perfect rehearsal dinner dress
This dress fit like a glove. I put it on and didn't want to take it off. It was flattering, had pockets, and was a unique color. It is pretty heavy, so I wouldn't wear it when it's hot out. It's perfect every other season though.

Flattering fit
I usually struggle with finding dresses for my shorter apple shaped body, but this one fit me in all of the right places. The satin bodice is very stretchy and forgiving for someone who is a bit "soft" in the midsection. I think this dress is one of those that could work for all body types. I loved the pockets too!

This was my first RTR experience so at first I was worried about issues with fit, but it was all in my head! The 16 was a perfect! Dress was comfortable, looked cute with flats and heels... and had pockets!! Who doesn't love pockets!

Fantastic dress! It was fun to dance in and I got a lot of compliments on it.
Fits true to size. Great lining. I'm tall but the way it fell I didn't have to worry about it flying up when I was dancing. All in all I loved this dress and might rent it again for another wedding.

Fit like a glove and the color really pops.
Such a fun dress. Comfy. The quality and detail was all there. My only minor issue - the dress wasn't the most flattering in the mid-region - at times the material could appear bulky around the tummy area. Overall, terrific experience and very satisfied.

Felt beautiful
I needed a dress to wear to my boss's wedding, where three other senior executives from my department would be in attendance, so I needed something relatively conservative. This dress was perfect: neither my chest nor my rear were hanging out, yet it was cute and fun. I normally wear size 6 in dresses but size 8 in pants because I have bigger hips. I am also relatively tall at 5' 9". I ordered both the 6 and the 8, and while the 6 fit everywhere, it was about an inch shorter than the 8, and since I wanted the extra length because of the nature of the event, I went with the 8, which also fit well and wasn't too loose. I was worried about what other reviewers said about the arms because I have fat upper arms, but I had zero problems. It's true that this dress is hot, it was a 50 degree day so I was fine until we started dancing, when I got super sweaty. I would not wear this for a summer wedding, but it would be perfect for all other seasons. I paired it with hot pink heels and gold earrings. I loved this dress and felt comfortable and beautiful!
