Such a flattering dress for all figures!
I wore this dress to my husband's military officer graduation ceremony. I received so many compliments on the dress, and my husband didn't want me to send it back. The pockets were perfect! I was able to carry the car keys in my pocket, so my husband didn't have to have them in his uniform pocket! Loved this dress!

pretty but i wasn't totally thrilled with this one
this dress is pretty but the fit was just not right for me, i have wider shoulders and small hips and this dress would be perfect for someone with the opposite body shape. the hips puff out a few inches on either side, which is awesome if you have a small upper body, but i just felt large all night. the netting/structure was a little itchy, i had this shipped directly to the hotel for a wedding & wished i'd tried it on at home. i'd recommend thicker underwear or something to keep the lining away from your skin. i marked this as true to size but i thought this ran small in the bodice and extra large in the bottom.

Darling dress for a destination wedding in the south
Beautiful dress that fit well. The material looked a bit worn but other then that it was a great experience! I am living abroad and can't wait to get back so I can rent again!

Gorgeous fabric on this dress.
this was a back up dress as my original choice was not available in my size. The dress is beautifully made and yet it was a little worn==the black of the fabric was faded. That said, the quality is amazing. It was a good choice for a country wedding. Keep in mind that if you are petite like me, (5'2") it will hit well below the knee which can be a little dowdy. Wear highest heels with it--

Perfect dress for a polo match in Los Angeles!
The pattern was cute and the pockets were the best part. Unfortunately the dress was faded and looked like it had been dry cleaned too many times. It runs big so order a size down for back-up (if they have it.)

Unflattering!
I had been looking at this dress for months, and finally decided to go for it. I rented it for a wedding and was so excited to wear it, but it is very unflattering. The 4 fit me well. However, what the picture doesn't show is that the dress poofs out weird at the waist. I don't know about you, but I don't exactly want to ADD to my hip region. I think this could work for someone with a straight shape, but for anyone with curves, I'd probably consider wearing something else.

I loved the pockets! :)
This dress is very pretty and is, mostly very comfy. The dress did seem a bit faded in the black parts, but nothing that detracted horribly from the dress overall. The fabric has a nice stretch which makes it really comfortable and the lining is a yummy stretch silk. The one major negative is that there is this weird plastic mesh in the hip area, I guess to give more shape. Two negatives about this...1. I, at least, have no need of extra shape in the hip area! and, even worse, 2. the plastic mesh had raw edges and the plastic ends would poke through the dress lining and poke me! Made what would have been a super comfy dress significantly less so.

So flattering
This dress was perfect for a wedding - appropriate for the services and so fun for a party. I'm a pear shape, and it looked great - fitted at the waist and flared out below. I usually wear a 2 in a dress shape like this, but sometimes a 4, and the 2 fit perfectly. I wore super high heels which helped since this came a little bit longer on the knee.

The perfect choice for an afternoon bridal shower. Flattering, lovely and so comfortable! I felt spot on for the tea party theme.
I am a huge fan of Lela Rose after a few fabulous rentals. This dress did not disappoint. The shape is feminine and so chic. Loved the pattern and detailing. Ever since I saw a photo of Sarah Jessica Parker in this dress, I've been dying to wear it.

It was so fun to wear such a beautiful dress and amazing designer!
I wore this for a daytime party and received so many compliments. It was super comfy and easy to wear. I have a smaller bust and usually don't go for dresses that are fitted at the top but this fit perfectly. The colors were a bit faded and you could tell that the dress had been through a little bit of wear and tear, but it was so fun to wear such a beautiful dress and amazing designer!

Love this dress!
Gorgeous! It fit perfectly, flattering and impeccably made. It does look like it's been cleaned and worn many, many times, that the black is starting to fade a little. But i didn't care, it was an amazing dress.

Love this dress!
I loved, loved, loved this dress! The print is unusual, but very flattering. I think it runs a tiny bit large, so I paired it with a skinny belt, which worked well to bring in the waist a bit. The dress was also really comfy and easy to dance in. Highly recommend!

Very full and short waisted
The fabric is absolutely beautiful, but the photos do not illustrate how full the dress is. The dress is short waisted so the full skirt added pounds.

Beautiful & Well Made
This dress is just as gorgeous in person! I was extremely pleased when I opened the box. I received numerous compliments from other wedding attendees. The material is of the utmost quality. A size 0 would have been nice, due to the neckline being a bit low & the waist being a bit too roomy. Overall the dress still looked great. The full skirt was a concern due to my height, but it does not cause an appearance of having giant hips. It is evident the dress is made to look this way.

My future mother-in-law told me I told like a movie star!! I felt beautiful and confident! Thanks RTR!
I absolutely love this dress!! I wore it for my spring bridal shower and I've never received so many compliments! I swear we spent a full 30 minutes just talking about the dress and RTR! I ordered a 6 with a 4 as a back up. The four was too tight in the chest, but the 6 fit perfectly in the chest, but was a little loose in the waist. It didn't really matter though because it still looked beautiful. The material feels luxurious and the pattern is truly beautiful! I would definitely rent this again and highly recommend it to others! Perfect for any spring or summer wedding event!

Adorable Dress
So cute and perfect for an engagement party. Runs a little large and I probably would have worn a 0 if it was available although I could wear the 2 (I normally wear a 2/4.)

Felt absolutely amazing in this dress to ring in 2012!
I've been eyeing this dress for a while now and decided to rent it for New Year's Eve. It was an amazing decision and I felt so great all night! I can't even begin to count how many compliments I received. The fabric and structure is of the highest quality and the full skirt lays just as it looks on the model. This dress is perfect for any occasion and you'll no doubt be the best dressed in the room.

where did it hit you, it looks like it would be long? I am about your height and normally don't like knee length dresses
RTRApril 20, 2012
Hi Brittany, Katie actually works here at RTR and the dress looked fabulous on her! It hit a bit below her knee but she paired it with a tall heel to add height.

This dress made me and those around me happy, it was just that cheerful
That's how I felt wearing this beautifully tailored dress. I could maybe have gone a size down, so it was a bit shorter (dress is right below the knee for me), there was room in the waist although not much. I had three events the day I wore this dress, it was very comfortable, I even fell asleep in it at one point and it didn't look wrinkled at all! Excellent fabric and construction, the tulle creates a nice silhouette, though for someone with big hips like me, I would've been fine without the extra padding :)
