rented for a bachelorette party - it was perfect!
Seeing it on the hanger did it no justice - you must try it on!!

Cute and flattering!
I ordered this thinking it would be a cute dress for my wedding shower. I kind of didn't think this would be a particularly flattering dress with the layers, but it is actually very slimming. I ordered a L and XL and went with the large. The color is definitely a bright emerald green. Beautiful, but the pic made me think it was more teal. No problem though, although I was aiming for something more blue to match my wedding colors. The material is rather thin and I had some difficulty finding a bra that would work for it. Any lace or other embellishments will show through. A slip wouldn't be a bad idea, but I didn't have one. I wore my most low profile bra but unfortunately its shape was such that the corners where the strap goes into the cup peeked out under my dress so I should have used some tape. Overall I loved this dress though!

Didn't wear it
I had to send this dress back, as the 12 wouldn't even zip up past my rib cage. Others who rated this dress said it would be good for a full bust as it needed to be filled out, and I guess im just too busty for it. Material does not stretch so there was no way it was going on me. Beautiful dress, will look wonderful if you can zip it over your girls!

I felt like a princess!
I loved the fit of this dress. It fit me like a glove and was so comfortable. I felt flawless and bold with the pretty color and texturing. I wore it for a birthday party. I felt like I stood out but I didn't outshine the birthday girl. It was perfect for the occasion!

Cute and comfortable
Loved everything about this dress, but it was delivered to me looking SO worn. Snags, loose threads. Nothing large and unsightly, but it made me self conscious wearing it because I knew many imperfections were on the dress. I love RTR, but perhaps some dresses should be retired quicker if they start to look too "used".

Great color! Loved the thicker straps.
The dress was a little bit longer than I though it would be, but otherwise it was very flattering and fun! The color was great, too.

Belle of the ball!!
This dress is truly amazing!! This is from someone who NEVER wears dresses! This was my second choice and boy to I thank GOD i chose it! It fit perfect, while hiding my imperfections. I was worried that it would be too long, since I am vertically challenged. It fit perfectly. The color was amazing. I was the highlight of the evening! I would definitely rent this number again!

Dress made me look amazing.
Dress fit wonderfully. I received so many compliments and almost everyone who saw me in it told me how skinny I looked. :) Can't beat that.

Classy, but flirty dress. Tons of compliments!
This dress is a little shorter than I would normally wear. Both the size 2 and 4 appeared to have been altered at some point, with the lower ruffle section only about an 1" long instead of the 4" shown on the original dress photo. I was hesitant to wear the dress so short, but I was complimented all night on how cute the dress was. The size 4 was quite a bit longer, but too loose through the top.

LOVE this dress!
I rented this dress for a wedding. It was the perfect length, color and super high quality. I thought it was true to size as well. Wore it with nude heels which looked great. Tip - I wore a backless bra so the top wouldn't tighten any more than its already perfectly, snug fit. (Other reviewers said the top was tight). It gave me the perfect "lift" but didn't make the dress tighter than it needed to be. Overal, ten out of ten. I wish I owned it.

Beautiful Dress!
The color was so vibrant and beautiful. It was a little snug on the bust area but overall fit was fine. It was also a bit longer than I would have liked although I am only 5'3".

Great for a party, flattering style and color.
I was really happy with this dress for my small New Year's party. The color was beautiful in person and it was comfortable. I was looking for something flattering to my current body shape and I felt like this was good for hiding my tummy. My only hesitation would be if you are flatter chested this may not be your best bet as it's really made to be filled out on top. This would be gorgeous on any body type though, and I'd highly recommend it! Great for when you want to looked dressed up but not over the top.

The compliments
I rented this for my company holiday party and it was perfect! A great fit all around. Very flattering. The fabric around the bust allows for C-cups, but I'm a small B so I filled the space with one of those stick-on bras. Worked beautifully.
