Not for big bottomed girls!
I did not end up wearing this dress. The fit was quite boxy instead of "sheath." The dress was snug around my hips in a way that was too unflattering to wear out. The dress is also quite short!

I wore this dress as a member of the bridal party to my cousin's bridal shower.
I received tons of compliments while wearing this dress and felt absolutely gorgeous! It fit like a glove but the only negative is that it was very short. Beautiful, nonetheless!

Awesome dress!
The fit was perfect--just a little too short for a wedding! I ended up wearing something else.

Just wasn't doing me any favors
Beautiful color but fit wasn't flattering. Fitted through the bust and butt/thighs but baggy at the small of my back & stomach making me look larger than I am through the middle.

Loved knowing exactly what I was getting thanks to all the awesome reviews!
Wore this to a bridal shower. Had so many compliments! The reviews are spot on. If you have a slim waist and thicker thighs you might have some issues with this dress. There is absolutely no stretch and it fits loose in the waist area. The slip does show and that's why I left out a star. Other than that this dress was a major success!!!

Awesome color and a lovely look
This was a little short and a bit too cold for the outdoor wedding in October, but I really enjoyed wearing this! I would definitely recommend spanks because the dress is so formless, and any little imperfections that you may be self conscious about can show! Also I absolutely loved the color! It is gorgeous with darker skin tones

Great for my work holiday party
This dress was better than I had originally expected. I usually wear a 4 or 6 and I ended up going with the 42 (I ordered a 42 and 44). The 42 was a little big in the waist/back, but the 40 probably would've been a little too short, even for me (I'm 5'1). Definitely go a little bigger if you want more length. This particular dress doesn't really hug your body, so it's definitely not meant to show off curves. Very appropriate for a work function or something similar. Perfect green color for a holiday party and simple, yet classy.

Made me look fat
The fit of this dress is not that of a typical shift dress. It fits much tighter. As you can see, it has an awkward poof in the stomach area. I can promise you that is not what my stomach really looks like. I noticed many times through out the night that the dress was riding up a bit & creating a poof in the stomach. Not cute. I probably wouldn't recommend this dress, even though I loved the lace & color. If you do decide to get it, go up one size because it runs small. And maybe go up another size to get a true shift dress & maybe you won't have the stomach poof like I did.

Such a comfortable dress!
I was skeptical about wearing this dress because of previous reviews, but I actually loved it! The color was amazing and the slip didn't bother me too much. I wore it to my cousin's wedding shower (his fiancé, my future cousin, is pictured with me) and it was perfect! Unfortunately I do have a pudgy stomach, but some spanx did the trick. RTR never disappoints!

Perfect for a bridal shower!
Loved this dress! I wore it to my friend's bridal shower. It was very comfortable but didn't have much stretch to it so I would recommend sizing up. Will definitely rent it again!

Beautiful yet comfortable dress!
I loved this dress! I ordered a 42 and a 44 as a backup and while the length on the 44 was better, the fit overall on the 42 was better. I got a lot of compliments and the dress itself was very comfortable. I'd definitely rent this one again!

Lots of compliments
The fit was true to size. However I wish I would have sized up because it is a little short and I'm already a fairly short person at 5'1. I found myself having to constantly tug it down. The interior nude slip liner was longer than the dress in the front so I pinned it so it wouldn't keep showing. The color and lace material was very elegant. However this dress had seen better days because you could tell it had been worn many times before me because the lace was ripped in a few areas. Luckily I wore it at night so it was hard to tell. I did like this dress but I don't think I'll be renting it again.

Perfect bridal shower dress
I loved this dress. I wore size 40 which fit very well. Wasn't too snug anywhere. The 38 fit also but I wanted it to look more like a shift than a tight dress, so size up if that's what you're going for. Very pretty green color and lace. Wasn't too hot out in the sun on a hot day. Good length, I have sort of shorter legs though, so it may be pretty short if you're leggy. I'd definitely rent it again.

Absolutely beautiful color
Loved the color. Loved the lace. Overall good fit, but did not like that the slip kept peaking out from under the dress. Dress is also very short when sitting. I felt like I was showing a bit too much leg for a wedding. I received lots of compliments though, and if it was up to my fiancé, I would be keeping the dress. He loved it!

Not flattering on my body type due to boxy shape of dress. May look better on a person with a straight waist shape.

Great dress even with a small baby bump!
Needed to go up one size bc the legs were tight. At 5 months pregnant, I had a small baby bump and the fitted dress showed it off. Received so many compliments! Definitely another great rental!

I found this quite short and a bit tight though the body. But I still wore it since I hadn't packed otherwise, and it still worked well. Just size up.

The color is amazing the fit not so much
I wore this to Easter we went to church and then brunch. I thought the color was amazing however I wore the smallest size and it was to bagy. I also felt like it was a little short.

Brilliant color and lace that was perfect for my work event!
The dress is short, but I wore it with ballet flats and it was perfect for my cocktail attire work event. It isn't the most flattering dress for a hourglass figure because of the cut, but it was perfect for a work event where I was trying be dressy, yet professional.

easy to dress up or down...
I know this is a sheath dress, but the 42 was quite roomy. I would have felt more comfortable in a smaller size. the lace is a little snagged already...even though it is a strong weave.

Perfect dress for a rustic, outdoor wedding.
I was very happy with this dress! Beautiful color. I could have even went with a smaller size (40). I am 5'6" with an hourglass figure. Large bust (32G). The only real problem I had with it was that it was very fitting in the bust and lower hip areas, but very loose around my waist. So it didn't have much shape to it. If you happen to run into this problem try a belt around the waist!

Gorgeous color and so comfortable!
I loved this dress. The color is amazing and so different. I am slim in the hips and it was still a bit snug (although I still wore and loved it) so definitely size up and if you have big hips maybe even go up two sizes. I loved the mini length. I paired with nude peep toe pumps and got tons of compliments!

Cute dress but did not work for me.
The color is much more "evergreen" in person and perfect for the fall! The sleeves are a little bit puffy in the shoulder area (can't tell from the model). I usually wear a 2 or 4 so I ordered the 40 and 42. The 40 was a little snug in the bottom area but fit everywhere else. The 42 was just a little to large in the bust area. There is no stretch to the dress so the fit really has to be perfect. I really liked this dress but unfortunately it did not work for me.

pretty good
i have broad shoulders and was slightly concerned about the arms fitting, so i went a size up. fortunately, they fit, although they were a bit tight. i'm not accustomed to shift dresses, so the fit was different for me and sitting had a tendency to make it ride up, but the color was beautiful and overall it was a very interesting dress.

Will not disappoint!
This dress was a bit on the shorter side, but I loved wearing it. It does run a bit small around the hips, so although I wore the size 42 (size 6), an 8 would have probably worked even better. I wore it with the silver wave bangle set from Chamak by Priya Kakkar. Got lots of compliments on the dress and accessories! This was my first RTR rental. Definitely doing RTR again!

Too short and tight :-/
I usually wear a size 8 and I rented both size 8 and size 10 in this dress. The size 8 was too tight in the shoulders and hip area and the size 10 fit the exact same way. Both sizes were too short. The color is great, but the fit was all wrong.

modern lace elegance
loved this dress at first sight! upon receiving it the green is even more vibrant in person, which i appreciated. the lace is divine and the nude lining beneath is a good complimentary color not to mention a little touch of sass with the slight transparency (recommend barely there nude undergarments!) the fit was perfect at the bust for me, and a little snug on the hips, otherwise it was a good fit. the style of the dress is not to be cinched at the waist, so be weary of that- this is what gives it a cool modern edge. and the length- it is a little on the short side- but dare to go bare! i received compliments all night. this dress went perfectly with the 'urban indochine' wedding i planned and attended :)

So cute but not for pear or hour glass shapes!
I ordered this dress as my backup dress for a wedding at a lavender farm. I ordered the largest size because I know I have hips and boobs. The dress pulled at the hips (I am 44" measured at my hips) and rode up showing the nude slip underneath. Also, the cut of the dress is meant to hang away from the body, so there is very little cut in at the waist. I tried to cinch it in with a nude skinny belt but there was so much extra fabric to get in to my waist (30" measurement) that it looked bulky and emphasized the problem--so I will be wearing All About Crochet Sheath by Alice by Temperley. BUT I wanted to upload a picture and warn all my pear-shaped and hour-glass figured RTR sisters!

Thanks for adding a pic and your review, even though it wasn't the dress you wore. It helped me so much in deciding if this dress was for me! I have a similar figure to you. I'm going to check out the other dress you mention.

A great RTR experience & beautiful dress made a special weekend even better!
My size varies (between 8-12 depending on style) so I was hesitant on what size to order. I got the 44 and 46 and ended up wearing the 46. The 44 was definitely too small in the thigh/hip area and the 46 didn't feel much different, but I wore it anyway. Besides feeling a little too tight on the bottom, I really liked it! The beautiful green photographed very well. The experience was so smooth and enjoyable. I'm excited to rent again for my next special event!

The color was perfect
A little on the short side and the lace was a bit smaller than the tan slip underneath (probably from being dry cleaned) so it shows at the bottom.

Got a TON of compliments on this dress and was super comfortable in it!
As per some other comments, it runs small in the hips so keep that in mind if you are curvy - it's also really short...and i'm 5'2" - i found myself being careful not to lift my arms or bend over on the dance floor!! Still loved it overall though and would highly recommend to others.

I am a size 4 or 6; I ordered the 40 and 42 and ended up wearing the 40 for a shorter, sexier fit. Great color, great fit. Love the dress.
