Not my favorite RTR
Didn't love the colors... It's mint green with orange embellishments. It fit large on the top and very tight in the bottom. I'm normally a size 4 and when my size 6 backup dress was suddenly unavailable, RTR sent this as a replacement. It didn't fit right and the colors weren't my favorite. Could be beautiful on the right person but with it definitely didn't work for me and I did not end up wearing it.

Amazing color in person - super fun!
This dress was a huge hit at my friends bachelorette in Miami! It runs very narrow so I sized up to an 8 (typically a 4/6). 'm 5'9 and the dress was long on me (almost to my knees) but can be taped up if you want a shorter look (like pictured). Very cool dress - would definitely rent again!

Not unless you are looking to show "side-cleave"
I don't think there is a bra that exists that would work with this dress. The top is cut too narrow so that it does not have coverage in the area under the arms where the outer bra cups and the bra band meet. At least for me, I couldn't see a way around it without resorting to pasties, which may have worked for my pre-pregnancy perky 34C's, but not for my more gravity sensitive 32D's. Unfortunately I had to resort to my back-up dress after spending too much on this one. I also thought the fabric and construction of the dress did not look as expensive as it should based on the price. The color is mint with orange "bling"... very pretty color combo but you should be aware that the fabric is a much more saturated color than it looks in the picture - more green, less neutral-looking. The bling was also brighter orange than I expected. Again, pretty, but if you're going for understated elegance, this might be a little much. Overall, I love RTR, especially b/c of the great user reviews that help me pick out the right dress in the right size. I made a mistake with this one by renting it before it had any reviews. I will definitely continue to rent from RTR but will stick with dresses that have plenty of user reviews.
