This is an adorable dress. However, it is much shorter than it appears in this picture. It fits more like a mini on me.

I loved this dress so much that I'm renting it again for another event! It fits very true to size and fit me perfectly. I did not find it to be shorter on me than it was on the model.

I agree with previous posters that this dress was shorter than it looks in the photo (and that's saying alot since I'm 5'2"). Also, I think the ruffle is a bit puffier than it appears in the photo and doesn't sit quite as nicely. Still, I thought it was super cute and fun, and was totally excited to wear it. UNTIL, I found some marks on the hemline of the dress. Honestly, it looked like the dress hadn't been dry cleaned before it was sent to me. Thankfully, I had a cute Kate Spade dress that I own as a backup. I love Rebecca Taylor dresses, so I was disappointed I didn't get to wear this one.

Love this dress! i got it for a wedding. Im usually a size 4-6. SO glad i was able to order both. The 6 fits great, just a little tight on the sides but i do have broader shoulders. It was not shorter on me than pictured. I did use fashion tape on the ruffle because it is a little full. But it was a very easy fix!

This dress is adorable! It was not too short at all. I'm 5'2 and 105 lbs, bra size 32C and the 0 fit me almost perfect. It was maybe a teeny bit big in the bust, but I just pinned it under the ruffle to my bra. I got so many compliments!

I rented this dress in a size 2 and 4, usually I'm a 4. The 4 fit pretty well, however agree with other reviewers that you definitely will need tape for the ruffle. This dress is cute, but when it arrived it looked like it had definitely been worn a time or two. So, from a distance it would have been fine, but up close it was not anything special. I didn't find it too short on me.

Loved this dress. I wore this to a formal summer wedding, but it could work for any season. The skirt was nicely structured and the ruffle added just the right amount of drama. The dress looked bit worn up close, but otherwise this wasn't noticeable. I am usually between a size 2 and 4 but the 2 fit like a glove. I used fashion tape to keep the shoulderless side positioned at the top of my breast; it kept falling. The color is gorgeous - bright but not too bright. The skirt fell just a few inches above my knees.

beautiful -runs a little small
I loved this dress! The color is beautiful and I received a lot of compliments at the wedding I wore it to. It runs a little small - I wore the backup dress which is a size bigger than I usually wear. I was worried about it being too short, but it wasn't. I'd recommend it to anybody.

turquoise/berry went so perfectly together and i loved this dress.
wore as a bridesmaids dress at a wedding. LOVED it! received tons of compliments. i actually own this dress in orange and was thrilled to see it on your site. i normally wear a 8 but this dress runs a little small in the rib cage area so for the sake of breathing, i wore the 10.

Berry Bunches
I loved the color of this dress and the fit accept for the fact that it kept bunching up by the stomach and needed to be pulled down. In a lot of pictures I had a bump where there typically isn't one in my stomach area, it kinda looked pregnant.

This dress was absolutely perfect! It fit like a dream and I felt so beautiful in it!
This is a beautiful dress. It is made of high quality fabric too. I love the color. I received many compliments on it. I would definitely recommend this dress. I am usually a size 6 but I have a small waist so it fit me perfectly. After I ate though, the dress was a little bit tight around my waist. This was my backup dress. I was/am very happy with my rental!

Beautiful dress! Great color!
I rented this dress for a spring wedding. I decided to wear my back up dress because this one was a little too short for me - I'm pretty modest about length. Otherwise it is a beautiful dress! It runs large in the chest where the top lays so if you rent I would definitely get some Hollywood tape or toupee tape to keep it up.

Wore it to my sister's rehearsal dinner. Great color, great fit!
I'm really tiny, and nothing usually fits me, but this dress was great. It fit perfectly in the waist and length. I have a short torso, so it was a little big in the shoulder. I safety pinned it though and had no problems! Very happy with the rental.

The dress arrived on time, was in good shape and exactly what I expected.
I recently wore this dress to a summer wedding. I felt great and received many compliments. The raspberry color is absolutely amazing and very unique. I am petite and was afraid the dress would be too long, but it was perfect for my height. The cut was a little low under the arm so I was glad I had a few bra options to try with the dress. This was my first RTR experience and am impressed with the ease of the process.

Real cute, great color
I was so looking forward to wearing this dress but when I got it, the 4 was way too small and the 6 barely fit. When I got it zipped, I noticed the seams along the bodice were ripped. I had to send it back - silver lining though - RTR was ready to help and sent me a new dress (sadly - not this dress bc it was out of stock in my size, which is apparently an 8 in this dress).

My boyfriend telling me how classy I looked, as I got low on the dance floor with Gramm!
This dress was perfect for a Catholic wedding ceremony followed by a less formal outdoor reception --- it transitioned perfectly. The length and neckline are modest enough, but the ruffle adds a little bit of extra fun for a full night of dancing. I normally wear between a 0 and 2, I opted for the 0, but as the night went on and my belly filled with food and drink, I was wishing I had gone for the 2. Still, I felt beautiful and classy for my best friend's wedding. Plus, I've already ordered my next rental -- love RTR!!

Perfect dress for a summer wedding
This dress ran a little small and I was able to wear the 2. It's flattering for women with smaller waists and does have enough room in the skirt for more curvy hips. I did have to use the fashion tape to keep the right side of the dress up, but it wasn't an issue throughout the night.

Fun and flattering.
This would have been a good fit, but the bust was stretched out, likely from a prior renter that is more fortunate than I am in that area. Otherwise a very pretty and well constructed dress.

I had a great experience with RTR, and I was fairly pleased with the dress. I'll be renting again (:
The waist was quite fitted, but in a restricting way. I definitely had to use the hollywood tape (included), on the top, but it didn't really work that well and was uncomfortable. The pockets are a nice touch, too, and the color and overall look of the dress is really nice. My only issue is that it doesn't feel like a designer dress. The quality really wasn't much better than something you could purchase for $40-$50, which is the cost of this dress's rental. I'm glad that I did what I did with the dress situation, though, because I wouldn't have worn the dress again and it was cost-effective.

Very cute!
I LOVED the way this dress fit me, but did not end up wearing it because it was more "cutesy" and I wanted a sexier look for an evening wedding. Being petite and slim, I was concerned that the ruffle might overpower me. It was definitely very large, but not too completely overpowering. I was also pleasantly surprised that the shoulder was not too large, as I usually have that problem. The waistline tapered at my natural waist and was very flattering. I hope that I have an occasion like a shower to wear this dress to in the future!

The dress is very flattering and the ruffle makes it really fun! The material reminds me of a grosgrain ribbon which made it stand out. The color is great in person too. Wish I could buy this dress to keep!

Great dress! Stunning color. I ordered size 2 & 4. 2 fit perfect at bust but was a little bit tight around my tush (its a bit big). I didn't want to risk an embarrassing moment a the wedding so went with the 4 and used the fashion tape to tape the bust area. I would rent this again!

Fun and Festive and Perfect!
I wore this dress as a bridesmaid dress in Mexico and it was absolutely perfect. The structure, fit, and material screams tailored, polished, put together and the ruffle adds a flirty, festive and fun flair. The pockets are adorable and useful! If you're going to be outside, get some Hollywood tape to tape down the ruffle. It's not the kind of dress where you can lose a few lbs in your midsection to squeeze into it. Its tightest fit and where the size 2 v. size 4 comes into play is around the rib cage, where it's harder to lose inches.

Sexy yet classy! Beautiful color!
I felt great in this dress! I wore it to my boyfriend's cousin's wedding and received lots of compliments. My boyfriend loved it too. The bottom of the dress is tighter than pictured with the model. You definitely don't need a necklace-- the frill on the shoulder is an accessory in itself. I wore the 4 so I could get a tighter fit and my mom thought it was more flattering than the 6 but I probably could've worn the 6 too. Definitely recommend this dress!

I wore this dress to a wedding with a daytime ceremony and evening reception, and it worked perfectly for both occasions! The color is slightly more "berry" than the model pictures show, but it was still really pretty! It fits true to size!
