Wore this dress to a charity event and worked really well. Very cute and looks good, however I normally wear a size 2-4 and even the 0 was slightly large. Definitely not as short as on the model. Good for the night, but wouldnt order again.

The dress is beautiful but I was unable to wear it because it runs large and the two sizes didn't fit. Also as someone else mentioned it was not nearly as short as it is on the model. I got it to wear to a club so either way it would not have worked out. Sad because it is absolutely beautiful!

Color is beautiful. The dress is more shear than I could tell in photo and more appropriate for spring/summer. The dress was a little baggy, but not badly (perhaps it is supposed to fit like that because it looks flowy on the model). My challenge was that I am petite and even though I wore a strapless bra, the shear part of the dress (top left side) hung lower on me than a person of normal height. My dimension from neckline to bustline is shorter at 5'2" - as a result, the shear part swooped down too low and showed my strapless bra. I looked for cobalt blue bra to go under, but could not find one. I ended up using a shrug to cover up my bra that you could see through on the left side of the chest near armpit.

cute dress, great color, but does not look at all in person like it does on the model. you are a stick-thin tall girl, this is your dress! at 5'4" and 115 this was not at all flattering. i am a fan of larger silhouettes but this dress was too large in the wrong spots. did not wear.

I'd definitely recommend renting this dress - exactly what you see in the picture here is what you get, it's a little shapeless but that's how it looks on the model anyway. The bright cobalt blue is gorgeous (makes you look tanner, too) and it's super comfortable and easy to dress up or down for whatever occasion.

Didn't Exactly Work...

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Formal Affair
The color of this dress is gorgeous, but this dress just did not work for me. It was way too long. I usually like short flowy dresses, but this was long and too tight around the neck area. This dress is pretty in theory, but just did not look good on me. It would work better on taller people.

Very Loose Fitting

Size worn: 2
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
Beautiful color and beautiful on the hanger, but not very flattering on me. It is a very loose fitting dress. I am a size 4, and the size 2 in this dress fit me very loosely. It's very pretty, but only if you are looking for a comfortable, loose fitting dress. Keep in mind that it won't show off any of yours curves.

The dress was a little longer than I imagined (I'm 5'1" and it hit close to my knees). Very elegant, though.

I loved this dress, I wore it with black tights and heels to a fund raiser and it was very flattering. It flattered my larger chest and didn't make me look top heavy.

I wore this dress to a wedding rehersal and got a lot of compliments on it. I've ordered this designer before and this style but in the watermelon pink but thought it ran a little small so I ordered a size up and it fit perfectly. The details make it really fun to wear and it was so comforable and looked very chic!

Awesome color

I wore this dress for New Years last year w/ black tights and black booties. I rented the 6 and the 4 because I'm between sizes. I was swimming in the 6, and when I tried the 4 it was quite big as well. I didn't really mind the bagginess. My favorite part of the dress is that back, the buttons are such a nice touch. The dress is so comfortable and a lot of fun. Just make sure you size down.

Fun Mardi Gras Outfit!

Size worn: 0
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I wore this in winter to a Mardi Gras parade. Decided to wear it over skinny jeans and cowboy boots with my own belt. It was much looser than I expected so I made it into more of a tunic. I loved this outfit and got plenty of compliments. It is definitely comfortable enough to run around all night in.

Too big, too long, too dirty

Size worn: 4
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Other
Shift type fit, fit's large. I ordered a 4 thinking it would be a little small for me and I was swimming in it. It also IS NOT a mini dress. I'm 5'6" and it was still about a 3 quarter dress. It also arrived to me still dirty, so I didn't even bother wearing it to my sorority's formal invite.

Beautiful dress, runs long and I am somewhat tall. Fabric is much lighter than I imaged. Did not end up wearing the dress because it was too big, but would consider renting again in a smaller size!

Cute dress

Size worn: 6
Overall fit: Large
Rented for: Party
I wore this for our wedding shower which had a pool-party theme (please look past the hawaiin-flowers.). This dress was cute and fun to wear but it needed some shape. I paired it with a pink belt. It looked cuter in person than in photos. I was happy to wear this the day of, but it wasn't my favorite of my rentals. Stear clear if you have a formal event-- this dress is perfect for a semi-casual look.

Was really excited for this dress and I loved the color! It ended up just being too big, blocky, and unflattering, and I found the picture to be a little deceiving, so I had to send it back! Too bad though, it looks great on the model!

The fit was right on. I am short (5'1") and I thought the length was perfect, however, it may be on the short side for taller girls. The dress was easy to move around in, very comfortable and really stood out. I receive a million compliments! Thanks RTR!

Really breezy and fun. Perfect length, showed just enough leg. Perfect color for my skin tone. Definitely recommend for a party, wedding, banquet, and possibly a formal event. Looks great with or without jacket.
