Amazing color and detail
I loved this dress and received many compliments. The color is unique, the lace detail is elegant, and the cut and style of the dress is classic.

Can't beat the price. Beautiful color,
If you are in doubt, size up because the arms do not have much give and can be tight. The dress is very nicely lined -- no spanx necessary The dress is longer than it appears on the model. I'm 5'4 and it went a good 2 inches psast my knees. Sorry for the ridiculous picture, it was the most complete view I could find.

Perfect for a summer wedding!
The fit of the dress was a little small, as the previous reviewers stated. I ordered up a size based on other reviews and glad I did. The arms were a little tight but everything else fit well. The dress made my waist look small and chest look big which was great. I also have a larger bottom and sometimes pleats in dresses can make it look bigger but these were cut well and looked great. It flared out well when you move, especially with dancing. Have to be careful with the zipper, a little tricky, needed someone to zip for me and had to be very careful not to get it caught in the material. The lining is a nice smooth gold satin so it was super comfortable but not too warm. Overall loved it.

Great dress for a wedding guest
Gorgeous color, more aqua than green. It was a little warm, as the sleeves are fully lined. I found the bust to run large

Great match!
14 was the only option (no 12) but it worked. Color is gorgeous; I'm a redhead so it totally worked. Felt VERY comfortable. Perfect for a wedding. LOVE the pockets. Lots of compliments.

Very pretty color!
Super pretty dress! I wore it to a wedding and felt comfortable all night. The wedding was mainly outdoors, so the material was a bit too warm for the occasion. I did not think the arms were too tight, as others have suggested. They were fitted, but I didn't feel like I had sausage arms. Overall I would wear this dress again!

Gorgeous flattering dress!
The dress was gorgeous! It wasn't as green as it appeared online...it is more of a dark teal or deep turquoise, but it was even more gorgeous in person. The arms a little snug as others have said before me, but they loosened a little bit after some time and were not uncomfortable. The dress was extremely comfortable and super flattering. The pockets were a big bonus too! Would definitely recommend!!!

Just ok for me.
I had worn the same ML Monique Lhuillier style Alice dress for a previous event and loved the fit and color. I was going to order it again, but I decided to switch it up a little when I saw the same dress was available in a really lovely green. Unfortunately, the dress was a far cry from the green the way it looked on the model. If I had looked through the user pics and read comments I think I would have been able to second guess it, but I was confident based on wearing the Alice dress so I added it to my cart without a second thought. This dress ended up being a super bright teal, which some people have said they really liked, but it reminded me of a popular bridesmaid dress color from the 1980s. I would have settled with having to wear it for one night so didn't bother exchanging, and I ended up not going to the wedding anyway due to a last-minute family emergency, but I wasn't really excited to wear it.

This dress is beautiful. The color is more vibrant than it appears on the website.
The arms are a bit tight on this dress, but overall, it was comfortable. The fabric isn't overly heavy but might be too warm to wear in higher temperatures.

Great dress! Tons of compliments!!
Dress was perfect. Other reviews were very helpful, and it was exactly what I was expecting. Arms were a little tight, as others stated, but were not a problem overall. I loved the high neckline. I'm short, but this hit me right below the knee, which I thought was appropriate for a wedding. Size was perfect, my backup size wasn't available, but thankfully the size I ordered (after reading reviews) was exactly what I needed! The color is a little lighter and blu-er than the picture shows, but it is still a beautiful jewel tone! Also. POCKETS!!! Would rent again in a different color (just because I don't like to wear the same thing twice). Love love love!!

High quality dress, arms/chest are REALLY tight.
The dress was beautiful quality, not a single snag anywhere. However, the entire dress AND sleeves are lined with a thick, satin-like material. The skirt has 4 separate layers! Not for warmer weather at all, and the arms/chest are very tight. I am broad-shouldered but do not have a large bust, and this was very difficult to move my arms and be comfortable in. I would only suggest this if you have smaller arms & shoulders. Otherwise, it was a beautiful color & quality, and the material itself was soft and comfortable.

Vibrant color with a conservative and flattering cut. Like others, I sized up to accommodate the tight sleeves.

Bright, fabulous and fun
Loved this dress!! The teal color was very striking, and the cut was very flattering. Loved the elbow length sleeves... I worried they'd be too warm for a summer wedding, but they were perfect in the air conditioned venue. Glad I sized up per other recommendations.

Who doesn't love fancy AND pockets???
True to the reviews I read before I rented, this dress runs rather tight in the arms and shoulders. I'm glad I got the larger size as my back up, because I was better able to move freely and boogie on the reception dance floor. The waist was fairly loose but still looked mostly flattering and not too baggy. The only downside was that the larger size rose up around my neck when I sat down. This was my first rental, and I'll definitely rent again!

Successful test rental
Trial run to make sure it will work for a summer wedding in Napa. Love the dress and the style and the color. I did a 4 day rental to check for size and to try on with accessories and find complementary shoes. Will be renting again to actually wear it at the wedding in July

The color was Stunning!
I adored this dress, i went to a wedding in Scotland and i got SOO many compliments! A lot of reviews said the arms would be tight, it wasn't so much as tight more snug but comfortable to dance the night away. It is a heavy dress but the way it lays no need to worry if its windy. I will rent again!

Beautiful Dress for a Wedding!
This dress was beautiful! Color was so much better in person! I received so many compliments! The pockets were great! There is no stretch to the fabric, and I felt the sizes ran a bit small. It was great to dance in, except for the YMCA (arms were a bit tight) and is a little restricting if you have broad shoulders like I do, but the bottom or the skirt was great on the dance floor. It was heavier then expected, but luckily it was a cooler spring day! (Might be a little warm for a summer wedding) I would absolutely rent this again!

Spring weather perfect
This dress was perfect! The size 8 for snug and I could have worn it but the 10 was perfect for curves. Since the wedding was in the spring the sleeves were perfect for the weather. Got lots of compliments and felt the color was very vibrant for spring.

Everyone loved the cut of the dress, very flattering for every body type..especially curvy ladies!
The only thing I will say is the dress is WAY MORE BLUE than green, which is shows in the photo. Not was what I was wanting but it (thank goodness) ended up looking great with the heels I had purchased for the dress.

I wore this to an outdoor wedding in SC in April. Highly recommend this dress! It's breathable and lays nicely. Overall is true to size but the arms were a bit snug for me. The dress is very comfortable though and it has pockets.

I wore this dress to a wedding at a golf course, and it worked perfectly.
I chose to upload this one because you can really see how the dress fits and see what the color looks like in the light. It's a beautiful color, although a bit brighter than I had anticipated. It looks short on the model but it fit me right above the knee with a low heel (I'm 5'3"). I normally wear a 6 but chose the 8 just because it is a little snug around the arms. Overall it fit great. Only complaint is that looking straight on, it makes the hips look big. But overall it was a very pretty dress and I was happy with it.

I wore this dress to my niece's 21st birthday party and it was a hit!
I wore the 10 versus the 8 because the waist was too tight on the 8 and wanted to be comfortable. I wore spanx but didn't necessarily need them. Loved the length, fit and pockets! I could have easily brought this from the daytime birthday party to an evening event.

Gorgeous color! Works great with redheads ;)
Loved this dress! This was my first RTR experience and I couldn't be happier! I am glad I ordered a backup size in a size up from my normal dress size because I didn't realize the thicker lining would be throughout the sleeves, which made them tighter than I'd like. But overall, really loved the dress. Got tons of compliments, was a great price... This was worn for an early April wedding in Michigan and it worked perfectly. Will definitely be back for more RTR!

First experience - dress exceeded expectations.
This was my first experience with RTR and I am hooked. The reviews for this dress were so helpful and accurate. I was able to wear my current size but the sleeves were tight by the end of the night. The pockets were great for holding a tube of lipstick. I received many compliments on this dress. The color was great and the dress was very comfortable!

My best friend's wedding
I tried the 6 first but it was too tight in the bust and would not zip up. The fabric has no stretch at all. The zipper is also really hard to zip up. Luckily, I had my friend there to help me zip it up. The pockets are a super cool plus. I got many compliments with this dress. Loved it!
