color and embellishment... pow
this dress was super elegant and lovely at a recent NYC wedding. My only advice would be to go up for your back-up size because the dress runs narrow around the ribs.

Definitely one of my favorite dresses on the site. Easy fit and super flattering and the color is great -- would have been even better with a tan.

Great dress
I love this dress! I wore it to a friend's evening wedding and received tons of compliments all night. The color is beautiful, and the dress is very flattering. However, it does run a little small. I am considering renting the dress again for another evening wedding later this summer.

Snug, but very cute
I wore this dress to a wedding and was very happy with it - the color is beautiful and the shape is unique. I rented a 2 and a 4, and the 4 was a little snug on me but I was able to wear it anyway.

It was a great dress for a Girl's Night Out. I got compliments all night, and felt great!
It is definitely snug in the hips, so I suggest ordering a size up. Loved this dress. I felt great in it and got tons of compliments all night.

No one compliment in particular. Everyone just thought it looked cool.
Pros: tons of compliments. I felt super trendy with all the cool details. Originally I didn't like that the ruffles don't go all the way around, but I ended up liking it better that way. I was adamant about not having a strapless dress, and I'm glad I didn't have to worry about hiking it up or hiding my bra. The upper portion was comfortable. No one else seemed to notice the things that bugged me. Cons: literally no stretch in fabric (really noticeable in hips. I was scared of ripping it when I sat down so I would bunch it up a little at the waist). Black shoulder tabs weren't my favorite, but they worked fine. Same with the ruffles on the right hip that I really wanted to do some gravity-defying thing, but they didn't oblige. Also, you might need someone to help zip you up -- the zipper gets caught kind of easily.

Being able to wear a stand out dress at a great price and not worry about it collecting dust in my closet!
I wore it to a wedding and got many compliments! It has just the right amount of bling and color to stand out but not show off and overwhelm. I am a bit a pear shape so I wore a size bigger than my normal for comfort as there is absolutely no stretch in the dress.

Good dress for large busted
I wore this dress to a wedding six weeks after giving birth. I had no idea what size to wear, so I ordered it in four sizes (6, 8, 10, 12), my bust at the time was a 36G (thanks to nursing) and I wore the size 10. The dress did a good job concealing my not perfectly flat belly (another residual effect of my recent pregnancy).

Perfect Color!
I normally wear a 4/6 and the 8 fit me in this dress. It is beautiful! The most gorgeous blue with amazing detail on the dress. My zipper was a little tough to get up, I had to have my husband do it for me.

Unfortunate fit issue
I usually wear a size 6. I ordered a 6 and an 8 as a backup. The dress was gorgeous, but was VERY narrow in the hip/butt region. If you have any sort of "booty" I would not recommend this dress. I think if I had ordered a 10, the top would have been way too large.

A little snug.
The dress was beautiful and I got lot's of complients on it. However, I'm a pretty solid size 2, and the bottom half was a little too snug. I'm 5'2, 110 lbs, and no extraordinarly large rear end and I was scared I was going to rip it when I sat down!

Beautiful, but small
I rented this as a second dress to wear for a rehearsal dinner, so I didn't get a back up size and the one I rented didn't fit. This dress runs VERY narrow through the hips. Definitely not made for hourglass or pear figures.

Hot little number
This dress is super cute. Would be great for a bachelorette party or birthday. It was a bit too short and tight (in the butt) to wear to the wedding I rented for, unfortunately. Fit runs smaller than other Sachin + Babi styles. Suggest going one size up.

classy cocktail dress!
Wore this dress to a chapel wedding in Vegas. The fit was nice albeit a little bit larger than I am used to for that size. The shirred detail was pretty. My only suggestion would be maybe replacing the more popular dresses such as this one as mine seemed a little bit worn.

Not true to size
This is a BEAUTIFUL dress and I was super excited to wear it. I am normally a size 10. I ordered a 10 and a 12 and BOTH were way too small in the hips. I figured since this was in the "hourglass" section this would fit me well, but it did not. This dress is not for girls who have larger hips than upper body. I had to end up purchasing another outfit at a local store at the last minute. I really LOVED the dress so I wish I would have been able to wear it. :-(

Beautiful dress, but definitely order up!
I wore this dress to my cousins wedding. It is a gorgeous blue color and the detailing is incredible. I have to reiterate the sentiments of the other reviewers that it runs very, very small through the hip and thigh. I am usually a 2/4 and based on reading the reviews I ordered a 4 and a 6 knowing that my hips are wider. I went with the 6 which was still uncomfortable but manageable. The ruffles create a great illusion and nobody (I asked several close family members) could tell I felt I was going to bust a seam. Overall, it is a beautiful dress, I received countless compliments on it. Definitely order up a size or even two if you are wider in the hips. I paired the dress with a silver bracelet, diamond earrings and a steel gray clutch.

This was a gorgeous dress. Great color and great details.
The size 10 fit pretty well, but it was tight around the hips. I ended up wearing the 12 and it was a little big up top, but was more comfortable all around.

Colorful and fun!
This dress was my back up dress, I ended up wearing it because the dress I really wanted wasnt able to be shipped in time. (RTR did a great job of refunding me/making up for it! Awesome customer service!!) I was happy with this dress - the blue was bright and fun, the dress was really comfortable. A little snug in the hips for my body type (pear) but a size larger would've been too baggy in the bust. Overall, it was great for the occasion and i'm renting again for a wedding in October!

Loved the color and detail of this dress but it ran veryyyyyyy small for my tiny waist and big hips. It would be stunny on less curvy figures!

Just enough flash without going over the top!
I ordered a zero and and two. I have always worn a size 0 when ordering from RTR but am thankful I also got a backup size 2 because I ended up wearing the 2. There are no ruffles on the back of the dress and it is very fitted. Every time I sat down and then got up I had to pull the dress down as it bunched up in the back. I also realized when I got home that the zipper had crept down a little. I loved the sparkly belt and all the ruffles details. It was just enough flash without going over the top.

Gorgeous color and unique style - really stood out!
After reading reviews I ordered in a 4 and 6, but ended up wearing the 6 because it was a little less fitted in the butt/hip area. Like previous reviews mention, there's absolutely no stretch, so while it isn't the most comfortable dress I've worn it definitely did stand out and I received many compliments. If you're looking for a beautiful dress that's unique, I'd highly recommend!

It was an unbelievably beautiful dress, color, fabric, etc...runs VERY small in the hip area.
The color blue is beautiful and the jeweled belt is too. The fabric is gorgeous and I would have loved to have worn it, but I couldn't fit in the size 2 or 4. I typically wear either size and really needed a 6 for the hip area. It is lined silk so it doesn't give at all. I would not suggest this for an hourglass or pear shape.

Great dress for a wedding!
I wore this dress to a wedding and I loved it! It has the perfect amount of detail to make it fun and interesting without being over the top. All I added was a cuff bracelet and black strappy shoes and it looked complete. When I read the reviews I though it was going to be too small (I ordered a 0 and 2) but the 0 fit perfectly. I really liked the length and the fit.

I found this dress to run small. It was tight in my hips and butt area. The dress looks like a much better quality in the picture. Still it was a pretty dress, wish it fit.

Not the same in person
This dress runs very small and the colors are not as rich looking in person. The dress is also not as flowy as it looks on the model, the fabric is pretty stiff.

The dress is sooo unique! Nobody had anything like it and I received tons of compliments!
The color of the dress is absolutely GORGEOUS and the jeweled is way cute too. The fit is a bit looser than I would've liked, but that can be solved by sizing down. Overall though, I loved it!

Beautiful color and loved the belt!
Great dress - color looked great in pictures. Dress definitely runs small, especially for curvy girls. There is NO stretch in the skirt part of the dress. I sized up and it still felt small to me and the top started to become baggy. Overall though, I did receive a lot of compliments and I loved the detail of the attached belt.

I chose this dress for a fancy wedding, Very flattering dress. I will definitely rent it again !
I absolutely loved the bright blue color and the precious shining belt. I wore black pumps with it to recall the black part of the dress on the shoulders. Just a negative aspect:it was a little too tight around the hips area.

I usually wear a 2 or a 4, but with this dress I was a 6. The 6 fit perfectly and was very comfortable! The cut of the dress is super flattering...fitted but not too tight.

Fun & Flirty!
I wore this dress to a fall wedding, and it was perfect for dancing all night. The color is super vibrant, and the petals/ruffles on the front have really nice movement. The belt gives a pop of sparkle, too! I generally wear a 4 and the size 4 fit me to a tee. My only minor complaint is that one of the shoulder pieces was wrinkly and looked a bit odd up close.

Beautiful but snug in the hips
I chose this dress but ended up wearing the another one I chose--this one ran a bit snug in my hips. I usually wear a 6 or 8 and chose an 8 in this (as my 1 additional dress). It just didn't have much give in the hips but it was a beautiful dress. The color is beautiful!

torso portion is too long for some petite women
This dress is really fun and the color is pretty. My problem was that I am only 5'1 and the torso portion was way too long. Therefore, there was a lot of extra material on top, and the belt did not hit at my waist. I had ordered a size up because everyone said it runs small - the hips fit appropriately in the size up but the top the proportions were all wrong! I couldn't wear it :(

It was definitely a unique dress.
Seeing as this is a popular dress, I think it has seen some rough times. Each fringe was frayed to different degrees, so I had to trim a lot of loose threads. Other than that, the dress was very pretty. Many people wore royal blue that night, but none of them had the same glamor and unique detailing as this number. It was conservative enough to wear for my brother's wedding, but it had the extra oomph that I was looking for.

My first RTR bust
I've be a Runway girl for years and this was the first dress that didn't fit or look good. I actually felt like a blue big bird in it. I'd recommend this dress for girls that have fewer curves. Still, RTR got me another dress in time for my party that's GREAT!
