Such a fun dress!! Hard to return!
This dress is too much fun to wear-complements all night! To note-it runs very short! I am 5'2" and it was on the mini side for me. It is also a bit tighter in the chest region if you are pretty busty and the fabric has little give. The fabric details are incredible!

Perfectly unique!
I normally wear a 4 or a 6 ... This dress fit perfectly, lots of room in the hips because of the balloon skirt. Well made, fab material and I received constant complements all night from total strangers. Highly recommended!

Super Cute
I rented the dress for a cocktail party, but ended up not going. I love this silhouette. It's very boxy and short. Not "OMG why is her dress so short" short but cute and flirty short. I paired it with black tights and black heels. Too bad I didn't gat to show it off.

Hipster for the holidays
Dress was cute and hipster. Not super flattering, but fun and has pockets. I expected it to be a tad shorter. I wear a 4 in street clothes and the 4 (whatever that is in Italian sizing - 38?) fit fine. It could have been a little snugger in the bodice, but I imagine a 2 would have been too tight.

Super cute
Fits true to size, snug in the ribcage then skirt flares. Short which is good considering the cute style of the dress and covers otherwise. Unique and I feel adorable in it. Also has pockets.

Super Cute!!
Absolutely loved this dress! It looks really cute online but in person it's SO much better!! I received so many compliments, even on social media when I posted this pic. The only down fall is that there is no stretch to it and the arms are restricting. I'm normally always a size 4 but the 40 (size 2) fit perfect. I wouldn't recommend this dress if you have larger arms, you won't be able to move them....at all. Overall it's a great dress! If you're on the fence about sizing, get your normal size and one size down.

extremely large
i got the IT 42/US 4. i'm usually between a 2 and a 4 but found the 4 extremely large. i wish i got the 2 or even the 0. the dress is very cute, but a little too cute. i felt like i was wearing a larger version of a child's dress! i styled it with heels so it looked less juvenile. it was also a bit scratchy.

Dress fits true to size. Not too short- hits about mid thigh. Looks great with or without black tights. I would highly recommend this dress.

PERFECT baby shower dress!
The cherry print and little girl cut felt appropriate for baby shower, but the dark color and short length also gave it an edge that made me feel like myself. I styles with black tights and flat booties to balance out the sweetness. I got TONS of compliments.

Awesome dress!
I got it for my friends birthday party, and it was my first time ordering from RTR. It was great experience, I loved the dress. I'm glad I ordered a size smaller,. I usually wear size 8 and it was too big, 6 was great, and even for 6 I felt like I needed a little belt, to make the waste look smaller. The length was great too, it didn't feel too short, was perfect for dancing.

Perfect party dress!
Loved this dress. Perfect amount of glam without being overstated. The dress is "mini" length while still feeling elegant. Mini length allows for it to be work with flats or heels. I was worried the shoulders would be narrow for me but I ended up wearing the 42 fine (rather than the 44 back up). Waist is not quite a narrow as I thought - could be worn with a nice belt accessory. Many many compliments received :)

I got so many compliments on this dress because of the unique cherry pattern, particularly from people who are not normally fashion-minded.

FUN dress! So many compliments.
This was such a fun dress to wear. Probably one of the most fun I've rented. I received so many compliments at the fashion show I went to. It's was even on point for one of the Spring trends presented, confident reds. I'm only 5'2, so I did have to use hem tape to make it an actual micro mini, as shown on the model. There was plenty of room in the waist and the arms. Some items I've rented have fit tight in those areas, but no issues with this dress.

Stylist Review
This dress is so fun! I absolutely love the cherry pattern and short length. The fit and flare also gives the dress a flirty feel which is great for any occasion. One thing I would note is that the length is short on my 5'4 frame. I therefore do not recommend this for anyone much taller as it will be very short.

Super cute and stylish. Fabric was beautiful and it was comfortable. Got compliments all night.
Fit was good! May need to get a smaller size if you are more like a pear shape. The length is comfortably short. The pockets give it instant style!

So Cute, but Busty Beware
I'm dying to wear this, but I followed some of the reviews that said to size down. I am 34DDD, so I should have known better! I sized one down, and it zipped, but barely, and I was squashed flat. Absolutely true it is narrow across the arms and shoulders, this is a toughie to zip because your arms simply don't move. Ill try to catch it in my size or even a size up in the future! UPDATE: I got the size 6 equivalent (which is a size up), and it fits, but it doesn't seem as cute as I think it would if it was a perfect fit. I'm going to wear it out and see what happens. If you are smaller up top than I am, this will be a great dress for you! May or may not be a great dress for warmer weather - though it is short sleeve, the fabric is heavier, so its great with tights, but may need to be for evening wear/cocktail during warmer times.

Runs small but is adorable
Love love love this dress. The design is adorable and it's comfortable and easy to wear. It does run small so size up, and it's probably better for girls under 5'7'' since it's quite short, but otherwise, obsessed with this dress

Adorable print. Doll-like fit
I got a lot of compliments on this dress. I have a big chest so it was tight up top. I loved this dress, it was reserved and still short enough to be sexy cute. I would rent this again

wore this for work and a taco date night with my boyfriend. Such a fun pattern!
Loved this dress. The fabric and print look and feel expensive -- and pockets are always a huge plus! It's short, but the flare of the skirt is very slimming for your legs.

The first night of passover at my friend's parent's house, with my parents too.
Loved this dress! It was a little tight in the shoulders, so it may not be the best option if you're planning to throw your hands in the air like you just don't care, but it was perfect for the first night of passover! I got so many compliments, and I felt adorable! And the pockets were a huge bonus!

Fun and quirky print
I loved this dress. The material was so nice and fun. I was happy it wasn't as short as it was on the model, but I'm short. The waist was a little loose but I have an hourglass figure. Also, for having a larger bust, it fit really well on top. Always exciting. Best part--pockets!

Cute and runs true to size
My size wasn't available so I went ahead and ordered a size up as in some cases the dresses run small...in this case it seems that the dress is true to size as the dress was too large for me so I had to return it. The dress is cute and appears to be short so a heads up there. I liked the fabric with the cherries on it, very cute. I'll now have to wait for my size to be available to order it.

Cute and fun!
I wore this dress to a Kentucky Derby brunch and it was a perfect choice! It was fun, flirty, cute, and one of my husband's favorites. Even though I am only 5'1", it was still a bit short when I sat down. So the length would be my only con to this dress, but at the same time, the length was what made it fun, flirty and cute...it's just something to be aware of. But I would definitely rent it again!

Super cute dress! Perfect for an outdoor wedding party in New Orleans!
This dress fit perfectly! It was super comfortable to wear dancing all night long. And it was short enough to be flirty but not too short. I got compliments on it all night long! I would definitely recommend it!

CHERRY BOMB.
Loved everything about this dress. Runs sliiiightly wider, and can be tight around the shoulders, but incredibly comfortable and flattering overall. I am tall, and wore it with tights, so it didn't feel too short. If I'd worn it without tights, I would've opted for a lower heel (or just been reallllly careful). Pockets are the best, quality was great. Had a wonderful time wearing it, and lots of compliments.

Very flattering dress!
Other reviewers are right when they say the fabric looks and feels expensive! It so cute! The dress has a nice weight, and the cut is super flattering. I'm self-conscious about my hip/stomach area, so this silhouette was perfect! I got so many compliments through out the night. It can be a little tight in the shoulders!

I had to get a 40 and they didn't have my back up size. Its really cute but you cannot lift your arms so be aware. I wore this for my engagement shoot and got a lot of compliments.

The dress is tight if you are large in the chest. I'm a 34DDD and wore size 44. The dress was large at the waste but fit in the chest. Wish I had tried size 42. The dress had a great shape and I received many compliments.

I LOVED this dress! It fit perfectly, was fun and classic all wrapped up into one package.
There isn't a single thing wrong with the fit as it ran absolutely true to size. You could absolutely dress it up or down depending on your accessories.

darling dress//flattering and fun
I loved wearing this darling dress! the fabric is rich and heavy, with a slight sheen so it catches light beautifully. as a not very tall person (5'2") i loved the length... it hit me at just the right spot. definitely short, but not micro-mini. i'm somewhat short waisted and with a 36C bust i thought this might not be flattering on me, i rented anyway because i thought it was so cute.... and i'm quite glad i did. it fit great, looked great, cinched in my waist, and wasn't too snug in the bust. a tad tight in the shoulders but i wasn't doing any lifting of my arms over head so it wasn't an issue:)

The cherry dress is probably more a fall or winter dress. Material is heavy. However it's an adorable dress. Definitely a conversational piece
