Runs Small
Beautiful dress - actually looks much darker in person. It runs small - both of the sizes I ordered didn't fit (Size 0 and 2). However, RTR sent me another dress in time for my event. Maybe I'll rent it again, this time one size up.

RTR always comes to the rescue
Stunning dress !! Looks much better on then it does online. The dress runs a bit small. I usually wear a size 2 but ended up needing the 4 in this dress. The corset top is deceiving and has no actual support so double sided tape is a must !!!

Cute, unique dress - size just didn't work
I loved the details on this, but it just did not fit in the bust. I ordered a 0 and 2 and the 0 mostly fit. But, the bust did not have enough structure, and kept slipping down. Even with fashion tape, I wasn't comfortable wearing it and would've been tugging at it all night.

Beautiful lace dress
Normally I wear in between a 4 and 6 size dress, however after carefully reading the reviews from other renters I decided to order this dress in an 8 and 10. I ended up wearing the 10 and even that was VERY fitted. This dress is not for anyone who has a bust bigger than a c-cup. I received SO many compliments at the wedding I attended and I really loved it. It wasn't exactly the most comfortable dress, but I would highly recommend it based on how great it looked on.

Beautiful dress, but tricky to wear
This was my first RTR experience, and it definitely won't be my last. The dress was beautiful and I got so many compliments from friends and strangers at the wedding! I felt like a walking advertisement for RTR and couldn't quit gushing about it. The process of ordering, receiving and returning the dress was super easy. I knew from other reviews the dress ran small and ordered my usual size, but the backup was sold out. Luckily I was able to make it work, but I was all kinds of taped up inside the dress. The bodice has no support and would not work on larger chests. A strapless/backless/self-adhesive bra and lots of Hollywood tape did the trick. It stayed put, looked great and was worth the trouble. I would recommend it, but would definitely take those things into consideration!

Ugh. Too bad for this one.....wanted to love it!!
This dress is well made, but for who?? Definitely someone built straight and narrow, no curves at all. It didn't accommodate my chest or hips. With that in mind, definitely order if your body type would allow. I would say it runs a size and a half smaller that my normal 4-6. The 6 was very small. Good luck!

RUNS SMALL.
I normally wear a size 4 and ordered the 6 as back up, the 6 was too small to zip up. However, the dress is really beautiful. It was a shame I could not wear it.

Dress is amazing- runs a bit small and flimsy up top but great for small chested girls. I would suggest fashion tape and spanx but it was very hard to part with!

Beautiful dress! Listen to warnings, only rent if have small bust!
This was my first RTR experience and the service was spectacular. I love the ease of the service and will definitely be a returning customer. So, I rented this dress despite some of the warnings just because it looked so pretty and I decided I would make it work! It really was beautiful and definitely unique, however, I wish I would've listened to other reviews and selected another. It is true that it really is ONLY meant for small busted women. A cup or smaller. B maybe..... I felt uncomfortable all night because my boobs were so smashed in, I taped the dress all around to keep it up, but after a 60 minute Catholic ceremony of sitting, standing and kneeling, it kept pulling it off of me and I'd have to keep pulling it up and re-adjusting anyways, which is never attractive. It stinks to be uncomfortable throughout an entire evening worrying about popping out, so don't put yourself through it. I wore the 4, but could' have fit into the 2 body wise, but the 4 fit my boobs better, so it was a bit baggy in the middle when I would sit down. Listen to the reviews and pass this one up if you are bigger than an A cup.

Didn't get a chance to wear it because it ran EXTREMELY SMALL.
Pretty dress. I normally wear a 4. I read the reviews that said to order up so I ordered the 6 and the 8 and neither fit (I couldn't even zip it up). The top is more of a mesh pattern (see closeup pic). Bummed it didn't work out this time!

Classy
I read the reviews prior to renting so I knew it would probably run small on my 34D chest and it did- the cups not having any structure to them actually worked to my advantage in this dress because I just used adhesive tape and never once had to re-adjust throughout the day. I wore a ribbon belt around the waist and it looked great with the dress. Received lots of compliments:)

Stunning dress but don't forget the Hollywood tape!!!
The size 0 was a perfect fit...... Except for the all important boobies! I went with the size 2 in order to feel confident the girls wouldn't bust out -- even with double sided tape. The dress definitely shows it's wear but I used the tape to "fix" some spots. The boning disn't sit as well as I would've liked -- but may be because the 2 was a bit big. I would recommend this dress as long as you have a small chest.

Didn't wear.
Sadly, I couldn't wear this dress. I sized up, 6 and 8. Sadly, that made the bust way way way to big, but since I have the butt of a kardashian, I doubt I could've worn a four. Both fit about the same as well.... which is to say, I looked horrid in it. I felt so bad about myself in this dress that I had a mini-meltdown trying to get ready. Maybe I should've gotten two styles of dresses as I usually do but I decided to order last minute and was paying 30 bucks for overnight shipping already. I've come to learn my size and body shape pretty well, so I've always had good luck renting from here and getting a good dress. Despite reading the reviews and looking at girls with my same shape, I ended up with something I couldn't wear in public, lest I wanted to end up flashing the crowd my boobs or look like 10 lbs of sausage stuffed in a five pound casing. Sigh. Guess my new years resolution is to lose weight this year.

This was such a beautiful dress! Unfortunately, it ran very small so I wasn't able to wear it for NYE. Definitely a better fit for women with a smaller bust.

LOVED this dress! Was everything I wanted it to be. I ordered a 4 and 6 even though I'm normally a 4 because I thought it would run small but it fit perfect! The only downside was I am a D cup and it was hard to keep them in but a little fashion tape tucked them away.

I would say this dress runs true to size, though agree that it is SMALL in the bust. The other issue isn't so much the bust-size, it's the lack of structure/flimsy fabric around the bust area. In looking online I was expecting some boning and/or underwire and there was none. That said- the dress is beautiful! I rented this as an "extra" and didn't end up wearing it since it wasn't appropriate for the occasion but I will DEFINITELY be interested in rented again for an event where I need a short dress. Really recommend if you are small in the chest, it's truly beautiful.

as per other reviewers, the bodice has no boning or structure to it which makes it look/feel less formal and also renders it totally inappropriate for anyone above an A cup. the bodice is also not completely white- there is blue detailing (the lines that look sort of gray in this photo) which again made it look less formal to me. it would be a cute enough garden party dress, but i wouldn't recommend it for a nicer or more formal event.

Very pretty and unique
I rented this dress as an extra, and did not end up wearing it because it was a little too formal and the fit was not right on me. It was too long and the top would have required a lot of tape to stay up...if it had been my own dress, I'm sure alterations would have made it a knock out. It is really intricate and pretty, and I'm sure you would never run into anyone at a party in that same dress!

The dresses came as scheduled and I mailed them back in the prepaid envelope. Could not be easier or more fun!
I am tall and slender. I ordered the 4 and the 6 and ended up wearing the 6. The bust is very small so be careful if you are full chested. I had to wear fashion tape to secure the top, not to keep the dress from falling off but to keep the cups flush to my skin. The size 4 dress was perfect however I couldn't wear it because it was too small. The size 6 had some fraying on the ribbon but from a distance no one could tell. Overall it's a beautiful dress but would work best on slim body frames.

Beautiful, but unworn
The dress is stunning, however I would have to agree with other reviews in that the top is not as structured as I would have hoped. I have a small bust and even I was having difficulty keeping it up without it looking like I was falling out of it. I ended up not wearing the dress, but the colors are stunning. The hint of blue adds to the overall effect. I just wish my body was meant to wear it. Luckily, RTR has wonderful customer service and I was credited for future rentals!

Beautiful Dress for a Wonderful Moment!
I ordered this dress to wear as my going away outfit for my wedding. It's so pretty in person! You can't really tell in the picture, but there's a bit of yellow threading mixed in with the grey lace of the skirt. I absolutely loved it! The only issue I had is, as other reviewers have mentioned, the bust is completely unstructured and runs small. I had to tape the cups to me to keep them from falling down. Otherwise, great dress!

beautiful but get fashion tape
I loved this dress the detail is so beautiful and it is more of a grayish green color more so than ivory(but still a beautiful color so I didn't care).. def best for slender people..I am 5'2 110lbs wore the sz 0. the cup parts do not have boning or structure so the other reviews were right.. I needed to use fashion tape too to keep in from slipping down all night(the fashion tape worked well though) for reference I'm a 32B.. every where else on the dress fits like a glove.

Easy and perfect!
Loved this dress and had lots of compliments. The size 8 zipped fine until it hit my chest and I had to go up to the 10 because of that (I am a B or C cup). The dress sits EXTREMELY low up top so you have to be comfortable with that. I loved it!!!!

Beautiful, but ill-fitting
This dress was absolutely beautiful and I couldn't wait to wear it. However, like other reviews say, the top had absolutely no structure and just flopped over, no matter what I tried. Perhaps someone with a different shape could have worn it better. If you rent, I would definitely take advantage of the $25 second style just in case this one doesn't work for you either.

I loved this dress and overall was very lady-like, yet modern. My only complaint was that the top of the bustline kept folding down and the cup was very demi-like (I wear a 32A and had to be very careful of the top falling down).

I wanted to love it...
I thought this dress would be perfect for a pearshape like me, but instead the fit was just a bit off and unflattering. I think if it were a mini dress it would be better, but the skirt came off a bit frumpy. The top had no shape, and I don't think anyone with larger than a B cup would feel comfortable in the dress. Loved it on the hanger, but not on me...

This dress is nice in theory and on the hanger, but a disaster when you put it on. It needs more structure on the top. I wanted the dress to work for me because I love the style, but it just didn't.

Pretty dress, but very odd fit on the bust.
This dress was beautiful, however it is extremely uncomfortable to wear as there is no structure to the bust whatsoever. I really wish there were boning in the bodice. I had to wear a shawl all night because the bust kept sliding down. It was so embarrassing and uncomfortable. In photos it looks fab...but to move and sit, it was a nightmare.

I wore this dress to my engagement party. It photographed so well &I received lots of complements.
This runs WAY small and if you have a chest size over 32C, don't even bother (and even that would be pushing it). I normally wear a 0 and I couldn't even zip up that size. I wore the 2 and it was snug. This dress is definitely meant for boy-shaped females with small chests, which I happen to be, so it worked for me. The size 2 dress I received had a little bit of damage, but the details of the dress are so intricate, you couldn't really tell once it was on.

I rented this dress for my January birthday party in NYC. I loved it!
This dress runs fairly small. I usually wear a 6, but I ordered up to an 8 based on the other recommendations. It fit really well, and the details in the lace are gorgeous. The color is really soft and pretty, and flattering on fair skin. You definitely need to wear a strapless bra with this to give the top a little structure, as it has no boning to keep it up. I used the fashion tape included and that worked great.

Gorgeous Dress- easy to wear!
the dress ran a little small in the hips so I opted for the size up(6). I used double sided tape to secure the top but did find after dancing a bit that I was tugging at the dress to keep it from folding over on one side and exposing my bra. A fresh tape job fixed it right up. Other than that this dress really does all the work for you. It made such a statement and received so many compliments all night!

Most compliments I EVER got in a dress. Period.
Ran small, I always always wear a 0, and thank goodness I ordered the backup in the 2, because I couldn't breathe in the 0, but the 2 fit like it was made for me! The material was so so gorgeous in person, it has been my absolute FAVORITE RTR rental yet!
