This gown made me feel like a goddess in pink! The bottom flows around beautifully when you walk into the room. The back trail was my favorite part. I rented a size eight and a ten as my back up, though I could have pulled off either size the eight was a perfect fit to my body. The ten was a little less snug and I would have had to wear a platform heel. I used a turquoise pin on the left side for some fun summer color. I would recommend this dress to any of my friends.

The photos do not do this gown justice. It is gorgeous. The color is stunning. I usually wear an 8 and it fit true to size, though snug at the bust.

Overall fit: Small
The dress is not the peony pink in the picture; it's actually a scarlet red. I wear size 2 to 0 in most major brands and a 4 in designer labels. I got the 4. The dress runs small in the bust (I'm a C-cup); it zipped but it squished the girls. Also, I got the regular length -- waaaay short! I am 5'6". I had to wear flats (yes flats!) for the dress to be long enough!!! I have some killer 4 inch heels that had to stay home and watch the gold flats got to the ball! But the dress is beautiful and cut is flattering. I would try the next size up (not avail for my date) and I would get the long.

This dress looked worn, it had a few pulls when I received it and you can tell its been to a bunch of events and used by lots of other people. Thankfully the even I was going to was at night so it looked fine in pictures. It was comfortable and fit well just disappoited in the amount of wear it had when I rented it.

everyone LOVED my dress,and everyone was so jealous when I told them how little I paid for it!

Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
i LOVE this dress. It was actually my backup dress,but it worked out perfectly! a few things: 1. i ordered the 4L, and it was still very short! I had to pop my hip like the model whenever I stood, so people wouldn't see my ankles haha. other than that-PERFECTION. i tried this dress with no bra and with a strapless,and both were so comfy! I ended up wearing a bra so I could have a little cleavage! The bra never showed anywhere. This dress is not as hot pink as it is a richer,redder color! it's super fun and comfy and would recommend to ANYONE! (as a side note, for younger girls-i was thinking about getting this in black, and i'm glad i didn't. I would have felt very dowdy) :)

I enjoyed stealing a bit of my sisters spotlight, I loved the compliment of how beautiful I looked!

Size worn: 2L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I am very tall, and very thin, and this dress fit amazingly well. I wore this to my sisters debutante ball, and it looked great! My one problem was that even though I ordered a long, it was to short to wear with heels. It fit everywhere else perfectly, just was a bit short! I love RTR and will rent again.

Vibrant summer color and elegant cut.

Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
I absolutely loved this dress. So comfortable and elegant but also in a fun summer-y color. It's a bit of a deeper color in person, but very vibrant and nice. I wore gold earrings but opted for no necklace. The straps are very versatile in that you can expand them to be a bit thicker than they appear on the model. The train is a bit longer than I anticipated which made it a little cumbersome for a large event in a ballroom, but I just flung it over my arm and was good to go. The dress flowed very beautifully when you walked and the light airy material is great for summer. Highly recommend this dress!

classy and comfortable

Size worn: 4L
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
This was my backup dress. It fit snug on top and did not come to the ground when I was barefoot. The color is more pink than coral. The cut is very comfortable -- I felt like I could move around and it was not going to be revealing or I would need to be fidgeting with it. Very flowy.

Great color! In real life, color is more red!

Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I received compliments on this dress all night long. I will say that I found this dress to run a bit small. I could not rent the long length as it was not available, but the regular worked just fine. If I were to rent this dress again, I would get it in long. Overall, beautiful dress and beautiful color!

I wasn't expecting to wear this dress (because of an order mix up), but it ended up being perfect!

Size worn: 2R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Formal Affair
The dress fits true to size, and is very comfortable. The only problem I had was that it was a little short (and I was only wearing 3" heels). Next time I will remember that I need to order a "long." Surprisingly, the bust wasn't too big on me (and it almost always is), so people that are bigger than a C cup would probably have to consider sizing up. Other than that, the dress was great! The color is beautiful!

Wish RTR has this dress in 4L and 6L =(

Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Formal Affair
I knew this was the dress I wanted when I first saw it at the Showroom, the color is much prettier and more vibrant in person! It is not the same pink you see on the model! I love the fact that it has straps so you can walk around freely without worries. Ladies, this will be a comfortable dress to wear if the size fits you. Unfortunately, RTR does not have this dress available in my size =(. The regular for me is too short with a 2-inch heels on. Do order a size up because the bust area runs small. =)
