Team RTR Review
Obsessed! This maxi is super flattering and feminine. It does run small though so I definitely recommend sizing up in your back up! The waist is very fitted and not adjustable, so if this is your problem area, you'll need a size larger. The rest of the style fit very comfortably with room in both the bust and hip areas. I love this style - you won't be disappointed!

I ordered this to wear for Easter
This fits small and has no stretch and is cut slim. Pretty basic too. Pretty print.

Classic Floral Print, Flattering Silhouette
The band at the waist on this dress cinched the whole thing in to create a very flattering cut. It was tight on me (I normally wear a 10 and should have used the correct size), but I wore a shaper and I was fine. I wore this all of Easter weekend to several family events and to church. I dressed it down with a denim jacket and chunky jewelry and flat sandals. I got several compliments at church and felt great about the choice.

Great for work or a Sunday brunch
Fit perfectly, wore it with a jean jacket and white keds to keep it more casual but easily could've worn with something more dressy.

Easter Sunday
Beautiful dress. Waist is a bit tight and length a little long but for the most part fit true to size and could easily wear with wedges to make up for length

Did not wear
Fit was BEAUTIFUL I have a small waist and larger hips but with NO stretch it fit like a glove however I'm 5' so with 5" heels it still drug all over the floor so I returned it (rented it with my unlimited subscription) was also a lot dressier than I thought, rather than everyday was more like to a wedding or dressy even my in the weekend

Great for an outdoor desert wedding.
Definitely runs small. I normally wear a 4 and this was a 6R, and was bordering on too tight in the waist, but worked out fine. The length was perfect for me, and I'm 5'4". I wore flats, but if I had worn 1-3" heels it would have been fine too.

Beautiful elegant and feminine dress
Love everything about this dress! The 6 regular fits perfect -- that's my normal size. With a 2-3 inch heel the length is perfect. It's very dainty and feminine. Can be dressed down with a jean jacket. Look forward to wearing this to an Easter party!

Lovely and flattering
First, sizing up is the way to go. It's cut small with no give in the waist, so doing so will make it very comfortable and not too tight. It's very flattering on high waists and longer than I expected. I had to wear 3" sandals to prevent the bottom from dragging on the ground. The print is beautiful and well lined. I felt like a sleepy princess and just loved the way the dress moved. Lovely all around

Absolutely beautiful dress!
The fit of the dress was wonderful. I rented this this dress for our baby announcement photoshoot on the beach. I was really nervous about renting a dressing since, being 5 months pregnant, there was a high risk I'd just look huge or the dress wouldn't fit. I took a risk on this dress since I loved the color and cut and it was PERFECT! Beautifully slimming, great waist, a little flowing in the tummy. I felt so great in this dress! Other Pros: Travels really well, light weight, flowy Cons: I am 6'0" so the dress was calf length. Fine for a beach event :-)

Beautiful dress!
As other reviewers have mentioned, it is snug around the waist area, I'm not sure if this has to do with my height and the band hitting slightly higher than my natural waist. I'm a true size 6, sometimes the occasional 4, and the 6 fit well. The length was great, I wore 3 inch heels and thought it was perfect. Lovely dress!

I liked it better in person than photos.

Don't get if you are a 36 bust - couldn't zip!
Cute and looked great on waist. And great length. But I couldn't zip it up over rib cage - I have a big rib cage with size 36 bras and didn't want to risk stretching or damaging zipper so couldn't wear it. Bummer! In all fairness, I have a 29" waist but large rib cage and sometimes size 8 dresses with a smaller rib/chest cut are tight.

Cute but a bit conservative
I loved the material and colors, but it made me look very conservative -- I think a combination of the loose fit, long sleeves, and long skirt.

Still Thinking About Buying
This dress is my favorite rental from RTR since I have been doing unlimited...6 months or so. I am only 5'2 and the length was fine in small wedges. It flows beautifully, and I have received more complements from this dress than all rentals combined. In fact, they are still coming in from pics I have posted. I wore on my honeymoon and also on a post wedding wine tour with our bridal party.

Felt like a princess
This dress was light and airy. It is very long so those of us who are vertically challenged must wear high heels. It is tight in rib cage therefore must go up in size. But it was beautiful and elegant maxi dress

Lovely!!
I wore this dress to work with flat sandals then straight out for date night. I got a ton of compliments!! It's perfect length for me (5'10"), hit around the ankles. Loved this dress! The lining is a little light, so I had to wear a slip to keep it from being see through.

Perfect dress for a Tuscan wedding!
The fit on this dress was flawless. I'm 5'4 and with heels the dress length was perfect. Fit like a glove and had a beautiful flower feel. Romantic and elegant. Would definitely get this again

Loved this dress!
I wore this for my engagement session. People kept stopping me to compliment the dress. It was very comfortable, and was definitely not as long as other reviewers made it seem. I am 5'6, and with flats it barely brushed the ground. I couldn't have worn heels with it. I am typically a size 6 in dresses, but I had to wear the 8 due to the top being just a bit tighter than I would have liked (couldn't lift my arms very high). I would absolutely recommend this dress - it's very beautiful.

Beautiful dress!
I received tons of compliments on this dress. I like the sleeves and the pattern is beautiful. Definitely NO stretch in the waste... So I would recommend sizing up for sure (also, the arms may be a problem for some as they are pretty fitted).

Great dirt very where else. But I'm VERY busty and this just did not fit me. Otherwise this was gorgeous and classic.

Pretty but dowdy on me
I got this as my backup. It's a beautiful dress that would be more beautiful on a taller woman. I wanted something like a Downton Abbey Garden Party, but it felt a little more prairie on me. I was swallowed by the dress. The hips were cut a little narrow for me and the top was very blousey--so the proportions were a bit backwards for my body shape. The fabric was gorgeous & in great condition. But didn't end up wearing.

I wanted to wear this so badly - just a little too small
This dress did a great job of highlighting my waist but it was just too small in the shoulders. If you have athletic shoulders and a broad back, size up.

Worn for family beach pictures. I chose it because of the flowy design and breezy, casual feel.
My fit choices were between the 8 and the 10. The 8 was probably a little tighter than I would prefer on top, but my boobs are bigger than normal because of breastfeeding, and the 10 was looser (translated: messy) than I wanted overall. Because I really only wore this for photos, the fit didn't really matter as it was on for no more than one or two hours. I would have preferred it to be a little longer, but this doesn't come in a long length. Overall, it was really comfortable and I'm happy with the way our pictures turned out. It also hid some of that lingering baby weight because of the higher waist, but I still wore Spanx anyway. Overall, a flattering dress for a causual event.

This dress was just perfect! Women were literally coming up to me from everywhere telling me how amazing this dress was. It was so flattering and so romantic. It is such a gorgeous dress. A little tight around the tummy, but I loved that it made me look tiny.

Beautiful summer maxi for a boy baby shower!
Nice lightweight fabric for hot summer days. Good length for flats. I am 5'9" and wore sandals. The length was about a half inch above the ground. The dress has a side zip and the limiting factor is run cage / bust size. There is no give in the fabric, so if you are larger around the bust line might want to size up.

Very flattering cut, good for hot summer wedding
I didn't end up wearing this dress because i liked another in my unlimited bag more for this wedding and it was too formal for just everyday wear. But the cut is really flattering on your waist. The sleeves and the top part are a little conservative for my taste but it's breezy and flowing so great

Very elegant
This dress is much more elegant in person than in the pictures. They don't do it justice. As others have noted, there is not much give in the fabric, so if a tight waist is a usual concern for you, you might want to size up. I wear a 2-4 depending on the waist/shoulder tightness and the 4 worked for me in both. The sleeves had a pretty cut detail that is hard to see in the photos. It's not incredibly low cut so you probably won't need a cami underneath. I put one on just in case as I wore it to work but it was barely visible. The length is great for tall women. The fabric is fairly light and feels nice, so it's good for spring and summer. I'd definitely rent it again.

Elegant, classy, flowy and bright.
Doesn't wrinkle very easy so it would be great to travel with. The dress fits snug just under the bust, which give you great shape and comfort. I feel like I could have a sun umbrella and white gloves on with this dress. It's conservative, but I still felt a little sexy in it.

A conservative dress with a modern twist
I rented this as part of my unlimited subscription. I'm 5'5, 145 lbs, 34A, it skimmed the floor in flats, I was able to wear a regular bra but if you are larger than a C cup I would recommend sizing up. It fits loose in the boy town so was perfect for a pear shape. I loved the way the skirt floated around my ankles while I walked. I loved it so much I had to buy it!! Definitely a must rent!
