Did not wear.

Ran smaller than I thought. The underneath cloth made me look naked with weird dark shadows. I was so bummed it didn't look right.

Simply beautiful gown!

I loved this dress. I ordered a size down (2) and my normal size (4) because the reviews said the dress was a bit loose fitting. The 2 fit nicely but was short...as in if I put my arms straight up into the air, my entire booty showed!! As a result, I had to go with the 4 which was looser, but still looked great. Dress was still on the short side, be careful if you are tall and want to wear this out dancing!! I received a ton of compliments on this dress and am so happy I rented it!

Bright color, elegant fit, perfect for an occasion during any season.

I paired the Sea Water Shift dress from the Robert Rodriguez Collection with the Slate & Willow necklace for a Sunday afternoon wedding in late November. The necklace and the dress were absolutely beautiful together. This dress has a loose fit and can be belted, dresses up with a statement piece, or worn as is.

Love this dress for my engagement session. Great color and gorgeous lace detail!

The length was perfect! Not too short or too long. The fit was a bit large but had a nice casual feel with boots. Great pick!

The color was beautiful

I got a ton of compliments on the dress. I wore it for a casual wedding. My only issue was that when I lifted my arms the dress would come up. It made it difficult to dance because the dress would become shorter with movement. It was a beautiful dress but I wouldn't rent it again because of the length issue.

I wore this to my daughter's Baptism and received many compliments.

The fit was great. The 6 wasn't bad, but the 8 was more comfortable. I got a lot of compliments on the dress. I really liked the color.

Love the lace!

I wore this for a wedding. I loved the color of the dress, a little darker than the picture. I wore a 6 and it was loose in the belly area, not sure if a 4 would have fit because it may have been too small in the bust. Overall cute dress.

Pretty dress, but boxy.

I ordered this dress for Valentine's Day. I generally fit either a size 2 or 4, so I got both. The 2 fit but the dress is very boxy and not figure flattering for my pear shape, it looked like I had a green potato sac on. I had to have another dress overnighted and RTR was really good about getting me another dress and with the fit of it as well. Other than that it is a beautiful dress! I wish I had the body type for it. The color is pretty and it is a very well made dress.

Super short, but bump friendly!

I wore this for a birthday party. It said it was bump friendly, which it was. But it's also VERY short. I'm 5'10 and literally couldn't bend over without everything popping out. Not good for a tall lady. Beautiful color and material tho.

Great color and comfortable dress

The fit was pretty true to size for a sheath dress, with fitted sleeves and a more relaxed fit. Great for an outdoor spring wedding, sort of stretchy

Not my favorite, but the color is a win

Didn't wear this dress bc it fit very boxy on me. Plus, if you lift your arms, even to hug someone, the dress goes way up. Wouldn't rent this again. It did for big, so one size down is a must. Would be better for a girl with a straighter silhouette. Color is pretty though!

Beautiful color and great for baby bump

Loved it! It must run large because I got my normal size because the next size up wasn't available, and it still fit over my big 19 week baby bump. In the end I didn't get to wear it because my daughter got sick and I had to stay home with her and I'm so bummed! I wouldn't recommend it for a baby bump any bigger than 5 months though. It was pretty much at it's limit and there isn't much stretch in the fabric.

Perfect fit and loved the color!

I wore this dress for my nephew's christening. It was perfect for this event. I usually wear a 4 but I wore the 6 because I just about 5 months pregnant here and needed the bigger size for my boobs. I loved this color and the fit was perfect!

Bright sea foam green color!

It fits big. The 0 was not available so went with the 2. The zero would have been a better fit but it worked fine for a dinner party. The color really makes the dress!

I love that I can rent a dress, have options and not have to commit to something.

I ordered this as a back-up and ended up not wearing it. When I tried it on, it fit, but not the way I would've wanted it to. This was my second choice and I'm glad I ordered my first choice (black Raoul). The dress was a little short and felt that it made my tummy look big.

The process was very easy. It was exactly what I had expected.

This dress was gorgeous! I ordered both a size 10 and 12, however only the 10 shipped. It fit perfectly. It was a tad short, but I had expected that from previous reviews. It was very comfortable and I received so many compliments. I wore this to a croquet match that had a spring gatsby picnic feel and this dress was perfect. I can't wait to try another RTR dress!

Beautiful Fabric and color!

I had a morning beach wedding in Long Island, late August, and the dress was perfect for the occasion. It wasn't too heavy for having long sleeves, the color was beautiful and I received a ton of compliments. I wouldn't call this dress figure flattering, it's not form fitting, nor does it accentuate any particular asset - still a great option though!

The dress fit great. A bit of wiggle room around waist area but not a bad thing! I received nothing but great compliments on this dress.

Loved this dress! Comfortable and Fashionable!

This dress was super comply and look great on. It has some stretch in it if you need a little extra room. It is a little on the short side. I am between 5'5" and 5'6" and if I bent over or raised my arms over my head, my butt would have been hanging out! I had a ton of compliments on it and wished I could have kept the dress! Will definitely rent this one again.

Comfortable and great color!

This was a replacement dress- I ordered My Fair Lady but it wasn't flattering for my curves. I'm so glad I went with this dress instead. I ordered it a little big because I needed to look more conservative and because I did, I was so comfortable! The color really popped!

Perfect for baby shower--wore all day!

This dress was very "bump-friendly" as other reviewers said! I was about 14 wks at the time. Super comfy but a little short--nothing inappropriate though. Fit was great on my more athletic shoulders!

Beautiful dress

Wore for a Kentucky derby party. Loved the color and dress. Very comfortable. Only negative is that it is very short. Couldn't lift my arms up when dancing. Had to size up to increase the length to an acceptable level.

Great color! Too short!

Unfortunately I was unable to wear this dress- ordered a 8 and got a 6. I could have worn the 6, but it was too short and tight in hip, thigh area. Great color and will rent again hopefully. I will say I emailed RTR about the mix up and they did credit my account. That was great!

Great dress for a summer evening wedding!

Pros: color is vibrant, the fit is perfect, the sleeves are lovely, and the dress can be casual or elegant! Cons: you cannot lift your arms too high or else your booty is exposed! 9/10 for me! Loved it!
