Beautiful and very comfortable! Definitely a princess dress!
Fits a little on the large size, I could have worn the size 6 but it wasn't in as great of shape as the 8. Very full through the bust, which can make a full size bust seem larger, but the dress in absolutely gorgeous. Color is great. Wore this to two Debutante balls and received a LOT of compliments.

Beautiful Color!
This dress fit completly differntly than I thought it would by looking at the pictures online. It felt, and looked, really wide. I did not feel as flattering in it as I would have like. However, the color was amazing and I go compliments on it all night. Also flowed nicely when I walked, danced and twirled around! It was a last minute order and I am always grateful to RTR for being able to get me amazing dresses overnight.

Stunning dress!
The dress came in a little big (especially in the bust), but the second size ended up fitting perfectly. The dress is absolutely gorgeous, and photographed beautifully. The long was perfect for me with heels on.

It definitely ran large, but it was super comfortable and easy to wear and the color was beautiful in person and in pictures. I wore it to a black tie event and would definitely recommend! :)

Where did your date rent his tux from? I'm having trouble matching the colors and his looks almost identical to this dress.

Gorgeous dress - princess like!
The dress runs very large, which I knew from reading the reviews but I figured it would be comfortable if that was the case, which it was. I had to pin it in the breast area because it made me look bigger than I am and was loose under my arms as well. Other than that, it fit well - perfect for a spring gala. I got compliments all night and was fine to dance and walk around in it without getting stepped on like some of the other girls whose dresses had longer trains. I will say that if your chest is on the bigger side, it'll probably be a better fit.

This dress was so pretty! Everyone loved it so much and I got tons of compliments on it. I felt like
The dress does run large, and has a ton of extra fabric! I was stepping all over it throughout the night but it was fine really. I would recommend this dress to someone who has larger boobs so they can fill out the top since the top has the most additional fabric. The 4r fit me really well overall. This is a perfect dress for a formal occasion and something that is unique.

I wore this to my junior prom. Really fun night, and dress was so different from others' dresses
There was a lot of fabric but it all flowed perfectly. Runs big, as other reviews said. The color also looked different in each picture but it was so beautiful in person. LOVED IT

Amazing Color!
I rented this dress for my Junior Prom and I loved it! It's really the color of the dress that is the wow factor. This dress makes for a really nice "bohemian" look, and will stand out among a sea of dresses. I recommend it if you want a flowy, pastel colored dress! It ran a little long though, so wear heels if you're not that tall.

This dress was perfect! I felt gorgeous and did not want to take it off. Great for prom.
It definitely runs large so get a smaller size, It is also a LOT of fabric in the skirt so it was quite hot for dancing but it was worth it for how great the skirt looks.

I was getting compliments all night long!
The size fit pretty well! The only problem was that I have a large chest, and it wasn't covered up as much as I had hoped. Other than that, it fit great! I got compliments all night long. The color really pops in person more than in photos. Great dress for a wedding!

I went to the wedding of my friend's sister.
2R was too large for me but the dress was beautiful with a lot of fabric and a vibrant periwinkle color. I received many compliments!

Beautiful
This is a gorgeous gown. The color is spectacular and the dress moves beautifully. Ethereal would be the best word to describe it. My only issue was that there is just a little too much fabric at the bottom. It's perfect for just standing, but for dancing not so much; I had to hold it up all night. Also the dress length in the information is said to be appropriate for anyone over 5'2, which I am. This should be changed to at least 5'5. I had to purchase the tallest platform heel shoes (SIX inches) I could find just so I could walk in this dress and it was still dragging around. Other than that, I loved this dress and received many compliments on it.

Very comfortable and easy to wear.
This definitely runs large as others have said. I typically wear a 6 and the 4 fit well. But even then, the style... very Grecian Goddess, a little fancy nightgownish. The pleats in the bust were quite loose. If I had really wanted a slim fitted dress, another style would have been better (all the extra fabric might be better on someone not so curvy). I am a 34D and while, cleavage wasn't super obvious, it was visible, not something I normally go for. And the pleating made it seem a bit saggy. At first it all felt a little heavy, all the pleated fabric on the light shoulders, but it was still fun to wear and move in. I have danced, like, on stage, in big skirts before so I had a blast walking and swishing this around. I definitely had to pick it up a lot for stairs. The official photo makes it look baby blue, but it was more of a periwinkle. I ended up being a bit more formal than all the other female guests (the invitation said formal, but not black tie), but I felt like I "worked it" pretty well. I loved being able to rent such a fun dress and jewelry that I didn't have to worry about not wearing again.

Beautiful but Forgettable.
I chose this dress to wear at my wedding as a second dress change but I did not end up wearing it Although the color and material are elegant, the cut does nothing for this dress. I have a fuller bust already and this just magnified it and not in a flattering/sexy way. It just made me look REALLY top heavy. Overall, a beautiful dress just NOT on me.

The dress is absolutely gorgeous on.
I normally wear a size 8, but this dress fit perfectly in a size 6R. I have am large breasted and this dress fit perfectly. I got so many compliments. I would order it again. I loved the skirt on it. It is very full, a ton of material, but that is what made it so beautiful.

Lavender Princess Dress
I could have spent all weekend in this dress! It is amazingly comfortable. Dancing was fun with the extra twirl the fabric would do. A little low cut but not too much, just enough. I wore this with heels and a nude bra with clear straps. The back is sheer where the bra straps would show. Clear straps are invisible though. Recommend renting one size down. A 2 would have been perfect

The skirt of the dress is the best part, so twirly and fun!
This dress is AMAZING!! It does run big so go a size down from your normal size (I am usually a 4 but the 2 would've been perfect). I wore the 4 anyway because I loved it SO much! Perfect for Spring/Summer events. I can't say enough good things about this dress. Very flattering, and the skirt is a lot of fun to dance in :)

Alternative to black for a winter event.
The fabric of the dress is meant to flow. Even the waist is not very fitted. However, it ended up being a very easy to wear dress. It's a heavier material than it looks, but still light and airy in appearance. The top of the dress was very loose, even for a larger bust, but not unreasonably open at the chest. I didn't need to make any temporary fixes to make it work - just put it on and done. I did receive a ton of compliments and felt really pretty in this one. I'd recommend it, as long as the extra fabric won't bother you.

I absolutely loved this dress. It was so beautiful and comfy.
It fit perfect. I usually wear a 2 or 4. Luckily I'd read the other reviews before ordering. I ordered a 2r and 0r. I ended up wearing the 0r. My advice to you is to go a size smaller.

Eh...
Color wasn't quite what I was expecting. However, it was beautiful. It made me look pregnant.. and didn't fit my boobs. It would have been wonderful for my prom, but it didn't make me feel incredible. It was soft and easy to wear. I rented dresses and wore the other one (black and sparkly) instead because I hardly ever wear color, Recommend if you are tall!

Beautiful color! But...
This dress was not nearly as flattering on me as in the model pic. Almost as if there was too much fabric on the skirt part. Also, the top part fit well, but the extra 'hanging' fabric on my boobs looked sloppy. We were going to rent this as a bridesmaid dress, but we are glad we rented ahead of time to try on; we found another dress for The Day!
