Classy and casual
I'm obsessed with this dress! I ordered the 6, which is my usual size, and was bummed when they couldn't ship to me. My backup was the 8 and it fit perfectly. A little snug around the rib cage, which makes me think the 6 wouldn't have been a good fit anyway. I wore this to a fancy dinner and to a tour of my wedding venue with my fiancé and parents. Perfect for a garden party, outdoor wedding, wine tasting, or even a night out for a nice dinner. I'm contemplating renting again for my engagement pictures because it photographed so well!

Perfect dress
I rented this for a morning wedding. It was wonderful. The dress fit perfect (I do have a narrow rib cage and wore 3 inch heals). The dress flows beautifully when you walk and the colors are just right.

Waist too tight
Went up one size but still a tad too tight in waist. Next size would be too big elsewhere. Shame as lovely dress.

Nice but better for more full-bust women
I loved the look of the dress, but I don't think it worked 100% for my body type. I'm smaller on top and fuller in the hips—pear shape—and didn't like how fitted the middle and hips are while the top was very blouson and flowing, almost too much so. I'm 5'7" and the length was too short for heels, so I paired it with sandals. It is very pretty and modest and worked great for an anniversary date to a casual place in town, but I won't rent again myself. Too fitted in the hips for absolute comfort.

Elegant and adorable
The fit is wonderful, it very much accentuates your waist. It is very attractive without being showy. I wore this to a big picnic with a sunhat and it's definitely not for people who want to blend in!

So beautiful and airy
I wore this for an engagement shoot and loved it even more than my gown ! It moves with you and keeps you cool. Loved it ! Runs small though if you are busty. I'm a 32 dd. So I sized up 1.

Dress fit too small
This dress is so beautiful but unfortunately did not fit. I am usually a 4R and the dress fit great around the bust area and hip area but it fit too snug around waist. It has a thin piece of fabric around waist which fit too tight to be comfortable. Sizing up wouldn't have worked because it would've fit too lose up top.

Family photos!
I rented this for family photos. I loved the soft blue color- it was perfect for an mix of neutrals and blues. It was a little long for my 5'3 frame but I wore wedges. The sleeves made it look a lot more modest but it was fitted in the waist. Loved t!

Super cute dress with a flattering fit
I wore this to some wedding tastings, a wine tasting, and my birthday dinner. The dress is a decent length (I am a hair under 6ft), and fitted at the waist. It was perfectly snug around my ribcage, and accentuated my waist. Definitely an RTR favorite, and recommended for tall, hourglass women.

Very pretty dress and light weight. Runs small to size, especially around toro. Chest is large and flowing, so beware for smaller chest. Overall good find, but I liked it better in photos.

This was a wonderful dress
The fit was true to size. It was so flattering, the sleeves were not tight on my biceps but just right. I LOVED the way the dress flowed with the wind and how my waist felt tiny. I want to buy this one for sure.

Beautiful dress but a little tight in the arms and waist, as expected.
I could wear a standard bra with this and wore some spanxx to feel extra tight. I received endless compliments. The slits on both sides made it great for dancing! I am 5'9" and wore flats, and the dress hit at my ankles. I would definitely rent again!

Gorgeous, romantic, & feminine!
I LOVE this dress! I wore it for my engagement photos as many other renters have...for good reason! This dress photographs like a dream...it's airy and feminine with enough visual interest to stand out in photographs. I was stopped by several strangers because they liked it as well. I am usually a size 4 and that's what I wore, however, I preferred the length of the 6 better. I ended up wearing flats with the 4. The waist did get a little tight after several hours wearing it and a full meal with several drinks but other than that, the fit is very flattering.

Classic and feminine dress
Such a pretty dress, wish I could own it! The dress is a little funky in the fit, if you have broad shoulders or work out, you'll feel it's a little tight in the upper part. The waistline has no give, I'd recommend going up in size for the back up. This dress did everything I wanted and our pictures looked great!

Too tight!!
I absolutely love the way this dress looks... just not on me. I'm usually a 4/6, and both were far too tight in my stomach but very loose up top. I rented this as a birthday present to myself, but it looks like I won't be wearing it :( I would highly highly recommend sizing up. There is absolutely no give on this dress

Timeless day-to-night style
I have now rented this dress twice! Once for a seaside spring wedding, then a second time for a graduation and date night. Based on others' reviews, I ordered a 4R, which fit perfectly. The dress does not stretch, but zipped easily; I measure 28" at the waist. The fitted waist is accentuated by the blousing of the bodice. The subtle gathering detail on the sleeves is beautiful, and the dress is fully lined (to the floor, ladies!) which I love and feel is less and less common in dresses these days. The photos don't do it justice! This dress floats and flows when you walk, and is comfortable in hot or cool temperatures. While it is neither cheap nor sheer, I'd recommend that your foundation garments match your skin tone. In my photo I'm wearing flats, but tried the dress with heels and the hem came just to my ankle. Highly recommend!

It was my birthday! And the first one I have celebrated with a party in YEARS!
I LOVE this dress and am considering saving up to buy it! It is comfortable but beautiful and flowing at the same time. The length was perfect for me and the shape is great! I loved wearing it to my party as I'm not always one to wear anything too tight or revealing when family is involved and everyone loved the dress. The one thing to keep in mind is that the rib cage area can be a little tight. My normal size fit with very little effort until I tried to lift my arms or take too deep a breath, so I would definitely air on the side of caution and always also get the size up.

Light and springy look for Easter!
I loved this dress however I would have probably been more comfortable in a 10R. (They did not have it available as a back up size) The 8R fit but was tight around the rib cage and in my arms. The dress was also surprisingly long. I am 5'10" and it landed right at my sandals so nothing dragged and it didn't look too short.

I am HALF obsessed with this dress. It is just so PRETTY!
This dress is SO pretty. I could have take a really flattering picture if I had turned to an angle. HOWEVER knowing you don't always have the perfect angle in a crowd, I took it like this. It almost gives the appearance of shoulder pads. I don't mind wearing conservative clothes and that is how I probably feel most comfortable, but this dress looked almost like a costume in how conservative it looked. I think with my long hair down, that emphasized the feel. It is pretty, and the size was right, but it wasn't a good fit for me.

Beautiful but long!
This dress is a beautiful pattern. I really like the flowy-ness and the sleeves have a little ruching in the center, which is super cute. However, as others have mentioned, it is very long. For some reason I felt a bit matronly in it, so I will probably rent it again but not for a few years.... :)

Easter Sunday dress
Perfect dress for a spring event. Very flattering and feminine. I loved the subtle movement of the dress as I walked. The bust was a little too lose but didn't take away from the overall look of the dress.

Light, easy but extra special
I wore this dress for Easter on a day that was 83 degrees. It was conservative enough for church but the waistline was so flattering. My husband kept saying how beautiful I was in the dress and even suggested that I purchase it. It was long, though, so I wore 4 inch wedge sandals.

I wore this for family photos. The fit was true to size. I normally wear a size 6 and rented a size 6. I loved the sleeves on the dress. The waistline hits perfectly making you look thin. The material is soft and comfortable. Love this dress and would absolutely rent it again.

The perfect dress for a lat February shower. I'm 5'4" and with a pair of 3 inch wedges, the length was perfect. I loved the small v in the sleeve and didn't want to take it off.

Ethereal and romantic!
I wore this for my engagement photos! I loved this dress and am still receiving compliments on it. As other reviewers have mentioned, the waist is very tight. I am a size 8/10 and the 10 fit perfectly. I am 5'10" and the dress floated around my ankles, so it was definitely a little shorter than I wanted, but that's ok. Still, loved it. Beautiful dress.

I wore this dress to my sorority formal in November. I love how flowy it is! The slit is fun too.
I ended up wearing my backup size (10) because the 8 was way too tight around my midsection, which is my problem area. The 8 fit everywhere else besides my midsection, so if my tummy was in a little better shape, I probably would have gone with the 8! Overall the dress was in great condition and I really enjoyed it. Would highly recommend!

Flowy, beautiful dress for engagement photos
The colors and details of this dress are lovely. The fabric is light and flowy. The details on the sleeve photograph beautifully and the dress is very flattering. As other reviews state, the dress is very fitted through the rib cage. I have a very narrow rib cage and did not have to size up, but my movement was somewhat restricted in the sleeves. I do wish that the dress came in a longer option. At 5'11'', the dress was a full inch off the ground in flats. Otherwise- no complaints!

One of my favorite RTR pieces ever
I loved this dress. I rented it to wear for thanksgiving at my in laws and it was so perfect. The fit was so flattering and feminine. My husband said it was his favorite piece I'd rented yet. I'm definitely buying this dress! Simply stunning.
