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.

Seriously obsessed with this dress!
RENT THIS DRESS! I received so many compliments on this dress. The color is gorgeous. The fit is mainly true to size. I would say that if you are in between sizes, go for the smaller size because it is a sheath dress. The dress is also super comfortable! All pros for this one...no cons!

Needs to fit to look good, order down!
Great first experience with RTR! This was my first choice dress, but I didn't see the wonderful part of the website where it tells you whether you should order up or down a size. Beautiful dress! But it HAS to fit to look good. Otherwise, it makes you look like a box. May try to rent this one again in a smaller size.

I loved this dress! Goregous color!
This dress was perfect for a summer wedding. It's short, but not TOO short and the fit is really nice. I don't have much of a defined waist and this really fit nicely with my broad shoulders.

Was so happy I could just rent a dress and not worry about the hassle of trying to find something!
I wore the size 4, it seemed at first the arms were going to be tight at first but when I lined up the seams correctly it was perfect! It looked great without the belt as well, yet it also helped add a little shape to my figure. I was worried this would be too hot to wear during the summertime in the Midwest but it was not! I wasn't uncomfortable, too hot, or anything! I am glad I had two different dress size options it definitely helped to make my decision knowing at least one should fit!

Cute Color!
I am usually a size 2 or 4, so that's what I ordered in this dress and the size 2 was exceptionally large. It fit me like a pillowcase with sleeves. The color of the lace is gorgeous and the length was perfect but it made me look so shapeless I couldn't wait to take it off. Thank goodness I ordered a backup dress!!

I won best dressed that night. Literally.
Dress fit very comfortably. I looked beautiful, felt beautiful, but again felt incredibly comfortable. Saw dress on sale in pink on a flash sale site and wish I had bought it just for the ease and beauty of it. Very body friendly. If you are in between sizes get a back up a size smaller. If anything I should have worn a size smaller so I would not have looked bigger than I am at certain camera angles.

Is this dress more mint the green or green then mint?
JillianSeptember 9, 2013
It was more Turquoise than anything with a touch of mint.

Usually wear a 10, got this in an 8. Surprisingly loose fitting in the waist/stomach area, so very comfortable. Short, but not inappropriately short - perfect dress for a wedding!

Boots + Lace = Classy look for an amazing country music fest in downtown Chicago!
I worked with one of the stylists at RTR to find the perfect look for the Windy City Smokeout in downtown Chicago. The stylist immediately suggested wearing a lace dress with boots for an amazing look. She was right! This dress fit really well. I was worried that the sleeves would be too tight (my arms are bigger) and the fit was perfect! It was shorter than I thought it would be, but that was a good thing. Rent this dress for a fun night out on the town!

Amazing customer service. They went out of their way to make sure the dress worked out. Thank you!
The dress was great except it runs super large. I normally wear a 2-4. I had to wear a size 0. I got compliments all night- it was classy and sexy all at the same time. And the color was amazing! :)

The color was great but the fit wasn't for me!
I ended up having to belt this because it was so shapeless on me. If you have any curves, this might not be your best bet. I wore the 4 and it was still much too big on me, but it did start to border on potentially too short. I think a 2 would have been indecently short for a tall girl. Overall, I'd recommend this for a straight figure, or I'd plan to belt it. The color was awesome and I did get a lot of compliments. Just a few fit issues detracted from the overall rating.

pretty dress
Wore the 0 in this and it fit fine but was a little sack-like due to the extra fabric around the middle. I think this wouldn't be the case for someone with more in the bust area (I'm A/B) as that would fill out the dress and give it some shape. Even so, though, it is a very pretty color and dress and I might even consider wearing it again. It shows off the legs if not the rest of me :)

A green "potato sack"...
I wore this to my bridal shower this past weekend. I typically wear either a 6 or an 8 depending on the cut but was surprised by how lose and "sack-like" the size 6 was. I belted the dress but even that was sort of awkward looking due to the excessive amount of fabric in the back of the dress. I thought the dress was decent looking but was disappointed that it didn't have a true "wow-factor". For the $75 rental price, I think I got my money's worth but in no way did this feel like a $300+ dress. Perhaps be the dress has clearly been rented many times. It has the feel of a dress you've worn one too many times.

Beautiful Color!
This dress was perfect for an outdoor summer wedding. The color is great and even made my legs look a bit darker than they actually are. The dress is short enough to be fun and flirty but not too short that you feel uncomfortable.

Gorgeous color, tons of compliments, overall perfect dress for a summer wedding!
I have to be honest - I have previously rented this dress in black for a winter wedding and when I saw it in this fun turquoise color, I knew I had to rent it again. It is classy and fun, the perfect wedding guest dress. Material felt and looked expensive, length was perfect on my petite frame, color is amazing. I wore it with my own gold sparkle belt, with matching heels, and that is all the dress really needed - it really stood out on its own. I liked that it had a little wiggle room in its shape for dancing and eating. At this point, I probably need to just go out and buy this dress! It's too pretty to have to keep sending back to RTR :-)

First rental experience from RTR and it won't be my last!
I wore this dress to a rehearsal dinner and this was my first rental experience from RTR. I was very happy with the entire experience and will definitely rent again. I have an hourglass shape and can wear a size 4 or 6 in a dress depending on the cut. I needed the size 4 in this dress as it definitely runs large. The size 6 looked a little shapeless on me, while the 4 hugged my curves just a little more without being clingy or too tight. The dress is very comfortable, though very short when you sit down. I was standing and mingling for most of the night, so this was fine. If you are going to be sitting without a table to hide your legs, be aware that crossing your legs in this dress will take care as it is short. I received many compliments and really loved this dress. It was perfect for the outdoor summer evening event.

Looked great felt great! and with little jewlery i opted for bold lips! A little short when sitting (I'm 5'9") but it was so cute! Plus i danced most of the night anyways!

This dress was worn to a work event for the Sonoma Magnum Party and was the perfect dress for the event & occasion. The color is beautiful and the fit was perfect. I couldn't have been any happier with this rental.

Had dozens of compliments! Loved it!
Wore this for my brother's engagement party. Incredibly comfortable, fit me perfectly. I wore the size small and i usually wear a 2. It does fit a little loose because it is a shift-type dress! Definitely recommend to pair with a great necklace and heels for a fun night out.

Very comfortable!
I was very happy with this dress, it was ridiculously comfortable. I probably could've worn one size smaller for a sexier look. I have long legs and it fell just right as short but not revealing length.

Gorgeous Color
I wore this to a wedding in Brooklyn and received a lot of compliments. I was surprised at how big it was even though I'm wearing a 0. It definitely does not fit like the model. Nonetheless, the color was gorgeous and it was super comfy for the June, outdoor wedding.

beautiful, easy to wear
This dress is simply beautiful! I wore it to a bridal shower tea and it was perfect for the occasion. It is a nude slip (spaghetti strap) under turquoise lace. I was nervous that it would be too short, but it was about mid-thigh on me and didn't feel bag-like because I wore 3-4" heels. Perfect to dress up with fun jewelry. I found the 4 a bit roomy and maybe should have ordered a 2.

Cute!
I wore this dress to my mom's birthday party and it was perfect! The color of the fabric is a lot more vibrant in person than in pictures and the lace is gorgeous. Like others have already mentioned, there's little shape so it's not figure flattering (I look heavier than usual). But, I expected that and the dress is still really cute.

The customer service can't be beat!
The dress came a day later than it was supposed to- I had to go to a UPS store and retrieve it. It happened to be on the date of my event, which was as little stressful. The customer service that I received was fantastic. For the inconvenience of the late arrival, I was given a code to use towards a dress in the future. Luckily, the dress fit fine. It actually ran a little bigger than I was expecting it to. Had the 8 been available, I would have gone for that. The dress was a hit- I felt super comfortable all night and received a lot of compliments!

The dress was comfortable all night and everyone loved the lace!
I wore this dress for our New Years celebration out on the town. I'm normally a size 10 but I was able to wear the 8 and still have room to enjoy the night. The color is beautiful and the lace is gorgeous. You can wear regular undergarments which is a plus! Such a comfortable yet stylish dress!! I loved it!

Blah...
The model must have this dressed pinned back. It fits like a pillowcase. It's one small square of fabric. If you are pregnant or need to hide a belly and like to show leg, this dress would work. There is not any hint of curve to this dress. It is straight up and down and will not flatter a figure, just hide it. I did not wear either the 2 or 4. Both looked like pretty teal potato sacks.

Beautiful color but no shape to the dress
I wish this dress would have fit! It fit ok in the arms but that's about it. It was loose in the body and fit me like a sack! The length was a bit too long and I am 5'7...I don't have a photo because I chose not to wear this for my event.

I wore this for our first date and he loved it. So did I! It is such a comfortable dress and the lace isn't heavy at all. Turquoise is my favorite color so I had to rent this dress :) True to size and roomie. Definitely take this dress into consideration.

Great for spring wedding
This was a really great dress. Overall the dress ran large. The arms were a little tight though. It was comfortable and the fabric was really nice. Definitely size down for this dress and it will fit much better.
