Color was great! So many compliments on this dress
Dress fit great! I'm still in post baby bod mode and this dress still made me feel sexy. Color was awesome. Got so many compliments. I would rent again! Current weight is 126lbs. It is perfect for petite ladies I hate when things are long this was perfect length

Fantastic Dress!
I ordered a size 8, but the person who had it before me sent it in late or was damaged. Luckily, I had ordered a backup size 6, which was sent to me and glad the dress ran big because it fit great with room to move around OR eat a big meal with lol. I would rent this dress again and mint is my favorite color!

Perfect fit for a new mom
I loved this dress! It was perfect because I gave birth a 8 weeks ago and this dress was loose along the belly section but tighter in the arms. It made me look very slimming. This is a perfect casual dress if you're looking for one. Loved it!

Perfect style and color for brunch
I had mixed feelings about this dress. It was a beautiful color for an early spring brunch party and it was comfortable enough to be worn all day. I got a ton of compliments! Many of the reviews said that the dress ran big, and I would say "it's complicated." The dress has a nude slip that is separate. The slip is stretchy and clings to your curves. I was able to wear the smaller backup size (size 6) slip. When it came to putting on the size 6 dress portion, I was not even able to put it over my head and get my arms through. There is NO stretch and no zipper- you have to put it on over your head. I have broad shoulders and athletic/muscular arms, so I had to wear the size 8 dress. Once I had it on, it did look big. I would not recommend this for curvy women or women with muscular arms.

Worked for me at 5.5 months pregnant!
This review probably won't be terribly helpful to most, as I wore this dress at 5.5 months pregnant with baby #2. Sized up from my usual size by one size, which worked well giving my belly enough room without being overly tight. If you are pregnant and considering this dress, I think the one challenge would be sizing up enough to accommodate the belly, but it could get a bit baggy in the sleeves / shoulders, which was the only issue I ran into.

So chic and comfortable
I rented this as a backup dress for a December wedding shower and honestly never expected to wear it. I ended it up loving it more than my original pick! It's so elegant, but also extremely comfortable. The sleeves made it a great choice for the colder weather. I kept getting compliments all day and was sad to send it back.

I used this dress for my Master's graduation and it was perfect!
I usually order 2 and 4 as backup. I didn't needed the backup because the 2 fit just perfect. My arms can be troublesome with sleeves like this and I did not felt uncomfortable at all, which was amazing! Very cute dress and the color was beautiful. My husband thought I've bought it and for date night he asked me to use the "pretty dress you used for graduation". I would totally rent it again.

Extremely comfortable, flattering dress!
The fit was perfect. The material is not stretchy but the dress fit well enough that it didn't feel restrictive. Very comfortable. I am 5'2" and this was the perfect length for my comfort, it came a few inches above the knee. Easy to dress up or dress down--great dress!

Overall pretty & very comfortable
Got this for an outdoor wedding that was going to be a little cooler (it was actually very cool out). This was incredibly comfortable. I went with a size 2 & 4 and should have really done 0 & 2 because of the nature of the shape of the dress but it looked fine. My fiance was a fan and it was just really comfortable. Comes in two separates pieces (the slip and the lace dress part).

Way too short for a 5'8" gal with long legs
I wish I had listened to other reviewers. If you are tall or leggy, this dress is incredibly short. It barely covered my rear. Also I didn't find it to be as forgiving as some other reviewers did. I'm typically a size 4, which fit but was right. I could have probably worn a 6. Ended up wearing something else. The color is definitely beautiful and the details are beautiful and as everyone know, rtr is truly the best. This dress just didn't do it for me.

This dress was super cute and rather comfy. It was just too short for me to feel comfortable in. I would never have been able to sit down if I wore this dress.

Beautiful shift dress, but wasn't flattering on me
Color was gorgeous and overall very pretty. I felt it didn't quite hang right on my body and I felt like it made me look bigger than most dresses, so I wasn't quite as confident wearing this as I usually am with RTR dresses. This would look better on someone with fewer curves. On me though, it just felt like my midsection looked larger because the fabric hung a few inches off my back due to my larger butt.

Great dress for a summer wedding!
I ordered both a 2 and a 0, but RTR did not have a size 0 in stock when the dress was supposed to be delivered. RTR sent me both a back up dress of their choice and one that I selected. I didn't think the backups would arrive in time, but they did. And, although I ended up wearing the 2 in my first choice (this dress) I really appreciate the great customer service! The 2 fit fine, but was a little baggy in the middle. I think the 0 would have been the better fit. But, this was a fantastic dress and I received compliments all night! Highly recommended!

I wore this dress to a wedding. I felt so uncomfortable in it all night because it was so short.
I wore a size up and it was still too small. I didn't even dance because I was worried that once I put my arms up the entire thing would come up. I normally would of just worn one of my own dresses but this wedding was out of town and I did not pack anything fancy enough. I did not feel beautiful or comfortable. I was very very disappointed.

Pretty and simple
Wore this dress to an after-wedding brunch. I loved the color but the fit was just okay. I'm typically a size 4 in dresses but this dress was really baggy and loose around my midsection. In. Addition, I thought it was pretty short and I'm only 5'4. Wish I would have snagged a photo but unfortunately I completely forgot!

The color was absolutely beautiful. I unfortunately didn't get to wear it because the size 10 was way too short on me as I expected after reading reviews. Thankfully it fit my sister perfectly! Lots of compliments and would try renting again!

Fun colors. Fun lace. But so short on my 5'9" frame. Maybe I'm not used to wearing this type of fit, but if I raised my arms even a little, I felt uncomfortable.

It was a fun, family-packed week, topped off with a classy dress for my brother's beautiful wedding.
This dress was fantastic! It fit wonderfully for my brother's wedding. I'm a mom and sometimes self-conscious about my tummy area, so I wanted something flowing and loose, while still light and breathable for Chicago's summer humidity. The fabric was definitely light and breathable, with a nude sheath underneath the teal lace. The delicate look of the dress was ideal for a DIY, rustic wedding, and I wore a short, chunky necklace with bright stud earrings. (Height- 5'5", 135 lbs, usually a 6-8.)

Would have been perfect, in the correct size! Great color, and comfortable.
Ordered a 2 and 4...received two size 4's...should have worn a 2! Therefore, the dress was not as flattering as it could have been.
