Fun dress full of color!
This is such a fun dress! I'm 5'11, and it was higher than shown on the model, but not too skimpy. I have my hand on my hip, so it looks higher. This is such a fun dress and it was perfect for travel because it didn't wrinkle and could be dressed up with heels and dressed down with flip flops. I'll get this dress again...it's comfy and flattering.

Bump Friendly & Great Color
Perfect for pregnancy, I wore this during my late 2nd trimester. Comfortable and I needed a belt to better show off my bump.

Great color and very comfortable!
Overall, I loved this dress! It does run large so I would suggest sizing down at least one size. It was perfect for an outdoor wedding where you aren't sure what the weather will be like. The color is very vibrant but the pleats are less noticeable than in the picture on the model. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is that there was no liner in the stress so you had to wear an undergarment to smooth out lines.

gorgeous color, perfect for a baby bump!
I received compliments all day on this dress! Wore it to a bridal shower for my soon to be sis in law. SO comfortable and gorgeous color (even brighter in person than I expected!) Perfect for my 4.5 month baby bump. Paired with a belt and gold heels - without the belt it looked like a choir dress :P Size down, especially if you are petite! You wont be disappointed by this rental!

Rented this as part of Unlimited for a Valentines Day party. Perfect for an evening of dancing.
The medium was not available, and all reviews had said it ran large so I sized down to small. The only issue was some of the pleats at the top tended to flatten out with this size. It still looked very nice and moved well.

The bright color was amazing! I love this dress so much!
This dress runs very large. I wore a small and I had more than enough room. Very flowy dress. I was comfortable dancing in this all night. I wore it to a work function and it was perfect. I'd rent this one again. I'd buy it if it ever became available.

Very happy I rented a dress for my baby shower.
I didn't realize I was wearing the L, I probably should have tried the M. I felt good for my baby shower. I was 33 weeks pregnant at the time, and I styled the dress with leggings, knee high boots, and a belt. It is very forgiving, and flowy.

I can't believe how many compliments I received on this dress! Simple but sophisticated style.
I was unsure about this dress at first, very boxy and tent-like. I couldn't tell the difference between the small and XS, both seemed huge. Anyway, I wore this to a baby shower and I got SO many compliments! Ended up being a great find!

Fit true to size. I'm on the taller side and it wasn't too short. It's was light weight, festive and totally fun. Got compliments all night and what's better then pure comfort in a dress all night! Color is vibrant and fabulous!

Super comfy dress. Wore this to a fall wedding at 6 months pregnant w/ a belt to accent the bump!
The dress runs large - I sized down (from Medium to Small w a 6 month bump!) Accessorize with a belt if you want some definition otherwise the dress is very 60's -esque. the color is fantastic though - very bright and pops!

Beautiful color!
Well, the dress was selected because of the unexpected weight gain (health related) and the style which would allow me to rest assured the fit would not interfere with my appearance. We posed for a family picture and people commented on the dress. However, I noticed the sleeves fell on my shoulders in an odd way... making the dress appear way too big. I felt comfortable in it all day but careful if it is windy!

Flowy
It sort of looked like a pillow case dress. It worked perfectly for a beach side rehearsal dinner but definitely was not very flattering. Would be a great dress to wear if I were pregnant. LOVED the color.

The color was amazing! And the fit was perfect too!
It was a perfect maternity dress. Adding the belt helped show off my bump a little more. The color was beautiful and it was sooooo light! I wore it to my baby shower in June and wasn't hot at all. I LOVED this dress and felt absolutely beautiful in it!

Not what I expected.
I got this dress for a graduation but I didn't wear it. It came down to the fact that the picture was a little misleading regarding the colour and pleats. The pleats are very prominent, to the point of the dress looking worn in or like they aren't supposed to be there. The colour was a lot brighter than I would have liked. All of this resulted in me not wearing it. The fit was great, true to size. No problems with the sleeves or length (especially since I'm a tall girl).

I wore this dress at 7 months pregnant and it was wonderful! I added a belt to give it some shape.
Runs large. I wore an XS when I would wear a small normally and a medium while pregnant. Does not have much shape to it so consider adding a belt or just be aware of this. Overall, great dress - lots of compliments!

Too much fabric and is see-through...
I wanted to love the dress and I selected it as a back-up to another dress I ordered through RTR. I order the small and it was still very large. The dress is not lined and is see through. The color is beautiful but I ended up wearing another dress.

The dress was perfect to wear to my baby shower. It was super comfortable but also pretty.
The dress fits large. I wore a size small and I was 34 weeks pregnant (weighed around 133 pounds). Loved the bright coral color. Not sure I'd rent the dress if I wasn't pregnant because it's so loose fitting. But if I did, I would need the extra small. I got many compliments on it!

Perfect for a spring outdoor wedding!
I chose this for an early evening outdoor wedding in the Texas Hill country. The free flowing fabric was cool enough for the late afternoon sun and design provided enough coverage for the cool evening, all while accommodating my growing fifteen week baby bump. I was both comfortable and feeling beautiful and confident (not always an easy feat when one is expecting) and I received tons of compliments. The dress runs a little large; I chose a medium bc that's generally my pre-pregnancy size but could have easily worn a small. Also, the pleats were not as prominent as the website photo suggests. Overall, I was very happy with my rental.

Loved the dress and color! Runs large I ordered the medium and small and went with the small. I'm 5'11" and it was almost to my knees so it worked out for me. Got so many compliments on jt! Would definitely rent again.

Not enough shape to look cute on me.
The fit of this is just too full and did not even look like a dress on me. It made me feel like I cut a hole in a piece of red fabric and put it over my head. Just wasn't for me.

Comfortable- I danced all night!
I just had a baby, so I needed something to cover my tummy- this fit the bill! I was a little worried about dancing in it, but it's long enough to remain modest. I didn't love the color (a little "loud" for my taste) and felt it was a little "burlap sack" feeling... but I got MANY compliments all night on the dress and my body post-baby (which means the dress hid everything it was supposed to!).

Great color and easy fit
Dress was great. Loved the color and easy fit. Ordered the M and L based on reviews. M fit great with the exception of chest, where the pleats stretched out. Went with L and fit great. Loved the easy fit could eat and drink with ease. Dress is thin so I suggest appropriate undergarments.

Comfortable dress.
They didn't have XS so I went for S. It fit a little large but not a problem bc it is 3/4 sleeves. I'm normally an XS/0 at 112 lbs but currently I weigh about 126 (mostly bump & bootie!). The color is prettier in person. Closer to a salmon than a true red. It fit me at 25 weeks pregnant and I bet it could be worn someone even further in their pregnancy.

Way to big and not for the holiday's.
Never got to where it! I still have some baby weight to get rid of so thought this dress would be perfect for a holiday party. BUT it's actually coral and the overall fit was huge... even the small was huge. I think it would be better suited for a travel dress when you have a nice tan definitely not for the holiday's.

Not too impressive
After many successful rentals this one didn't work out. This dress is kind of lame. Didn't feel like the fabric was holding up well. Fits like a sac and makes you look pregnant. Just not a great dress in my opinion. Other dresses from RTR have all been absolutely fabulous so I think I've been spoiled.

I was disappointed with the dresses I rented, nothing fit me right while being pregnant!!!
I rented this dress for a wedding, I figured I would be comfortable and feel pretty in this dress while being 22 weeks pregnant. However, it did feel comfortable and loose around my bump, but the sleeves were too big, it looked I was wearing an outfit to sing at a choir. I did not like how I looked in this dress.

Flowy, feminine, and didn't make me look pregnant!
Fits extremely large. I am 4 months pregnant and wanted something without looking frumpy and without a bow or empire waist belt. This dress was dressy enough for an outdoor Colorado wedding. Color was fantastic. It was so comfortable and flattering, my friends said they forgot I was even pregnant. Fits extremely large. I got both the medium and large thinking - obviously not fitting into a medium but I'd try anyways from the other reviews. Definitely go a size smaller than you normally do.

Perfect dress for a beach wedding!
Rented this lovely dress for a May beach wedding in Florida. Despite the heat & humidity, I never felt hot with the sleeves. It is extremely flowy (and perhaps a little large) & forgiving (which I like since I don't want to feel like I need to suck in the whole night). The color is bright and cheery. It came delivered freshly pleated & even though I folded the dress in transit to the wedding, it never wrinkled or lost its crisp pleats. Material is a little bit shear, so I would not recommend wearing darker undergarments. I wish I didn't have to return it!

I wore this for a graduation party
This dress runs large. I am normally a large, but wore the medium instead. Thank goodness for backup sizes. Its very loose and flows. Great for a garden or summer party. The one thing is it doesn't quite flatter busty girls. But I already had the dress so I wore it anyways. I picked the medium over the small because the large was so large it fit like a moomoo on me.

Lovely (but large) dress!
I rented this dress for a brunch wedding but never wore it. It came early (thank you RTR). I knew it would run big but when I tried it on, I felt like pumpkin. :) The color is amazing and it is truly a unique dress, but I have an athletic build and I am on the shorter side so the largeness didn't flatter me. I think if I were like 2 inches taller I would have filled it out better. I was worried the sleeves would be longer than needed but they were actually a perfect fit. Bummed I had to sent back, but RTR worked quickly and I soon got a new dress for the wedding.

belle of the baby shower!
this ran a bit large, i ordered a medium and large as i was 31 weeks pregnant and had no idea what size to get. i might have been able to pull off the small! otherwise, it was nice, airy and flowy - perfect for my baby shower! it came nicely pressed so all the pleats were in the right spot. i was able to wear normal undergarments which definitely helped. overall loved this dress!

Stunning color & dress!
The dress is absolutely stunning! It does run large so be careful with size. It's flowy so if you are looking for something curvy this is not it. Beautiful color & I got a ton of compliments. Thanks RTR!
