Great for a summer outdoor concert!
The dress is even prettier in person than it looks online. The colors are vibrant and the detail is gorgeous. The length was perfect for me, but I could see it being a little short on taller people. I thought the dress ran a little large though. It definitely just hangs on you and doesn't give you any shape, so I thought it could have been a little smaller through the body. Also, it was a little loose up top and gaped some, so I had to make sure I kept it pulled up so you couldn't see my bra. It was pretty enough and comfortable enough that I didn't care about the fit! I love the dress.

Compliments, compliments, compliments!
This is an adorable dress. Conservative except for the length. I'm 5'8" and it was pretty short. The 6 actually fit me better but I opted for the 8th in order for a little extra wiggle room for bending over, etc. I dressed it down for a 4th of July party but it'd be even cuter with heels and extra jewelry, etc. Loved it.

Wore this dress out for my 21st birthday
Thought the fit was absolutely perfect! I normally wear a 2 and while it did fit, I opted for the 4 because I could move a little better in it. Loved the fabric -- extremely comfortable and the weight was optimal for a hot Southern climate. Couldn't have been happier with this rental!

I didn't want to return this dress! A bit of a loose fit since its a shift dress but looks amazing on and compliments a tan very nicely.

Beautiful color
Got this dress as a backup and my first pick was great, so I wore it instead. I plan on renting this dress again though. The color was beautiful. Ordered the size 2 because of the other reviews and it fit great! Good length, about mid-thigh on me.

I desperately want to buy this dress!
Photos can't get across how beautiful this dress is. The fabric is quite thick and beautifully embroidered. It's not tight, but definitely flattering. The dress is pretty short, but I still felt comfortable wearing it to a fancy restaurant for a birthday dinner (as long as you keep your napkin in your lap when you're sitting! It rides up a lot). I was serious about trying to buy this dress, but unfortunately it's been customized especially for RtR! Guess I'll just have to keep renting it :)

Complete strangers were complimenting me on how well dressed I was!
The fabric on this dress is quite thick (although I find that is how a lot of RTR dresses are made, and that kind of high quality is what makes them fit so nicely). The pattern is beautiful and pictures really can't do it justice. I had complete strangers coming up to me all night telling me how beautiful I was and how well dressed I was. This dress may have gotten me more compliments than any other dress I've ever worn. I would highly recommend this to anyone that wants to stand out in a crowd. It is a bit short, but shows off the legs nicely, and the top is conservative enough and the dress is loose enough to keep it classy. I would rent this again in a heart beat.

Best dress for the occasion | summer wedding appropriate - not over or under dressed
Dressing for weddings can be tricky because you want to look great, but not go overboard. It's about the bride after all. The gorgeous contrasting colors and detailed embroidery were just right for a HOT summer wedding. I received a zillion compliments, and the bride said she wanted to wear it. The dress was a little short, and I would not have worn it without a belt because it looked like a potato sack from the side. My bra straps kept showing, too (as seen in the photos). Overall, I was happy with the rental, I just wish the dress fit a little bit better.

Wore this for a friend's Bachelorette night and it was perfect. Comfortable and flattering!
I got a size 6 with an 8 as my backup, which ended up being a good decision. The 6 fit, but was slightly too short in the back for my taste, so I chose the 8 which still fit like a glove but didn't make me feel like my rear was hanging out! Totally comfortable fabric, doesn't wrinkle, and looks great both in person and in pictures. I would totally buy it if it weren't an RTR exclusive!

I really liked this dress. It wasn't too short and was super cute. However, it ran a bit big and was baggy in the stomach. It didn't look great belted but was still fun.

Party dress!
Dress was beautiful but VERY short. The great thing is that the rest of the dress isnt very fitted so showing some leg is not too much. I wore the 2 because the 4 ran very big in the chest. But I dont really have much there ;) I received a ton of compliments from complete strangers. Love it!

Beautiful, vibrant colors!
The size 2 ran large on me. I would suggest a 0 if you have a petite upper body. It was large in the armpit, breast, and shoulders. Beautiful dress - I was very disappointed it didn't fit well.

Standing out for a special occasion
I ordered this dress for my anniversary weekend. It was a fun pattern and colorful in a sea of black dresses. The waist was a bit on the wide side - I wish is tapered in a little more. It was a comfortable fabric, I would definitely go with this designer again!

Was not able to wear.
I was not able to wear this dress because it was huge on me. Fortunately RTR was amazing. They picked out a dress for my small frame and mailed it out by the next day. The dress they sent me was perfect. So there is that.

Pictures dont do it justice! Not just a straight down shift dress.more form fitting!
I wore this for a ole miss tailgate and it was PERFECT! I am short 5'3 and this dress is too. It was so amazing and bright, thought it would fit like a shift dress and make it look like i had no shape but it didnt! hugged in the right places. i have a big butt and thighs and had to go with the 8 indtead of the 6, but it worked out! First RTR experince but definately not my last!

No stretch, strange fabric
I must have not read the reviews very well for this dress because I was very disappointed with the fit of this dress. I rented both a 2 and 4 (which I usually wear a 2) and wasn't able to fit in either size. There is absolutely NO stretch in this dress and the fabric has very similar feel to table linens. When I informed RTR of this issue, I was unfortunately, not offered a credit. I was very glad that I rented the backup 2nd dress that I was able to wear for the wedding instead. I would not recommend this dress to rent.

Unwearable if taller than 5'7"
The dress itself is beautiful but there's no way to wear this dress if you're tall. It's simply too short. The 8 fit me perfectly except that the dress barely cleared my butt. The 10 was overall big on me, and again too short.

The vivid colors were perfect to show school spirit at tailgate party!
Love it! The other reviewers were right about the sizing, it does run a little large, especially in the midsection, so I ended up wearing the 0. This is my only complaint because I wanted it to accentuate the waist a little more. It is very short (which I like!), so taller gals might want to keep that in mind. The colors and details look awesome in person. I wore it to brunch and a tailgate party, but it could also be dressed up for a more formal occasion. The material is thick, so the dress could be worn spring-fall.

All-around average dress, fun for a NYE tiki party
The material is nothing special- almost like canvas. I think the dress I wore had the neckline stretched out. The top is very boxy (I had to pin it back), and it didn't compliment my petite frame whatsoever. Perhaps a taller person with a longer torso and bigger bust would have been better suited in this dress. Pros: it's a fun color scheme and design, works with most accessories.

Distinctive and festive dress for my outdoor rehearsal dinner
I loved how playful and elegant this dress was. It is cut very straight up and down, so it lays more like a shift dress than it appears on the model (unless perhaps you have a fuller hourglass figure than mine). The scoop neck is lovely and the whole feel of the dress is relaxed; I felt great wearing it with strappy wedges for my backyard wedding rehearsal dinner!

Wasn't able to wear it.
I am a size 0, and while this dress has beautiful colors and material, the armholes were too big and the mid-section was stretched out, making me look paunchy. RTR was great in that I returned the dress the day after I received it for a full credit.

I got complements from people I didn't know.
This dress ran true to size for me, however it was short and made me a little self conscious when dancing. It rode up when sitting down as well. I rented the 4 and the 6 and went with the six due to the length. Also, my bra straps showed some. I loved the color and quality of the dress, however I don't think I would rent it again.

the colors on the dress really pop and it really stood out at my formal. It was very comfortable but maybe a little short for dancing -maybe wear spandex underneath in case. Overall I loved it!

Stretched and worn
The gown is not as bright as it appeared in the photos. It also was very stretched out in the arm pit area. I wear a size 8, and the fit was just off. It just was very dull and not exciting for summer engagement party. I would pass on this dress. Also, I had it delivered on Friday. By the time it got in (after 5:00 p.m.), didn't fit/look good, and got in touch with RTR, we only had about 5 minutes to order and ship a new dress, which was too late. I couldn't get one though the RTR helper did tell me in the future I should have it delivered Thursday, which was helpful. I had to make an emergency run to Saks before my party, so the moral of the story: have it delivered Thursday just in case.

This was a super fun dress. It's well made and I got lots of compliments on it all night.
The other reviews are right! It definitely runs short. I wore it with flats so it wouldn't be too crazy. It was perfect for a summer, casual rehearsal dinner. The embroidery was very elegant and it was also very comfortable to wear because the material is so soft. I'd defintiely recommend it

Beautiful dress - awkward fit
I absolutely loved this dress when I saw it online. Unfortunately for me, I have curvier hips and so a shift dress was not a good decision for me. I wish I had worn a belt, it probably would have fit a lot better!

I wore this dress for a wedding and felt great in it!
The fit was true to size and the colors are great! The dress itself is pretty short (I'm 5'3")...I wore heels and had to keep pulling when I sat down so I wouldn't expose too much! I probably would have felt more comfortable with flats on. This dress would be absolutely perfect for a night out, hot date night, etc. Loved it and the RTR experience was awesome. I already rented a different dress for a wedding this weekend :)

Cute dress--not for the tall ladies!
Cute dress, very fun to wear. In person it is a deep royal blue (no purple tones at all) with true red embroidery. Very little stretch to the fabric with a nice shape and fit. The neck scooped low on me so there was a lot of cleavage--no surprise there though given how short I am. But, speaking of height, this shift is definitely NOT for any of you tall ladies. I am 4'10 and the hem was at least 4 inches above my knees, + it rode up another few inches any time I sat down. I don't think anyone over 5'4 could wear this as anything other than a shirt. (But that is an idea! It does have a casual vibe and could be cute with leggings...)

Nice fabric. Odd fit.
The fabric of this dress was really nice, but the fit was odd. I have a larger chest, but this gaped in the chest area. My hips are rather small, but the fit was tight in the hips. It was also shorter than expected.

Lots of compliments! Perfect for summer family party!
Great dress! A lot of reviews thought it was too short (I rented a 6 also but still ended up wearing my regular size 4) which I can see if you are wearing it to a graduation or more conservative event but being 5'3" I thought it was the perfect length for a family reunion type party. I got lots of compliments and the embroidery is gorgeous.
