I wasn't able to wear the dress because it didn't fit me correctly. Both sizes were too large.
The detail on the top is what caught my eye. As well as the more conservative neckline because I was going to around my boyfriend's family for a wedding event. The dress ran too large for me (0 and 2). A 0 could have possibly worked but still wasn't as flattering as I wanted. Overall great, pretty dress.. just wasn't for me.

Beautiful dress!
I got this dress as a back up after keeping it in my saved dresses for a while. I was nervous that it was too busy but liked it for some reason. I definitly would've worn this if the size was right. I am normally a 2 or 4 but for some reason went with the 4 and it was a just a little too big. The dress is so beautiful in person- it looks so expensive and it had ZERO signs of wear.

You need to be slim
The dress looked lovely on the hanger and I had high hopes for it to fit. I am a size 10 or 12 usually in other dresses that fit me perfectly, even those that are slim fitting. However, I could not even zip the 12 upon this dress as it seemed to be made for someone with a much smaller bone structure or narrower lower waist (2 pregnancies probably widened me out a bit.) The ribbon area of the dress just didn't give way at all whereas some dresses do allow for a bit of stretch when zipping. When the dress did almost begin to zip, it looked like it was taking up a lot of the length of the dress and therefore it was beginning to look entirely too short for my height and age. Based on my measurements the stylists thought this might fit, but I think it's best for those with really tiny waists for their size.

Beautiful, but...
This dress was so beautiful, and I wanted so badly to be able to wear it. However, at nearly 5'11", it was not happening. I usually wear a size 6, but I also got the 8 thinking that it might be a little longer. Both were just way too short, but I can't really fault the dress at all for that. RTR was great about crediting my account back immediately!

If you are large on top, go up a size, it was tough to zip up the back. Cute dress otherwise.

Wedding rental
I got this dress in and 4 and a 6 and I've worn a 4 in all of the other dresses I've rented. Many reviewers complained the dress was tight in the hips, but I found it was very tight up top and really cinched my back and shoulder area creating an unflattering look. When I sized up to the 6 it was a bit loose in the waist and hips area. It was a pretty dress and I got a lot of compliments on it. The bottom half is a really pretty blue which isn't really captured on the model's photo.

Loved it! Got so many compliments!
I rented the 4 and the 6, since I have a larger bust, I had to size up to the 6 because there is absolutely no stretch in the fabric. Received many compliments and was comfortable all night! Great dress!

Birthday date with my fiance: romantic dinner then the theater!
PROS: The beautiful detailing of the dress were well reflected in all the photos - especially the beading on the top. The color combination was great as well. The fit was very flattering, which is what I expected after viewing the multiple pics posted showing the dress looks great on most any type of figure. CONS: The skirt fit a bit snug, although my bottom half is on the curvier side. However a size 8 is typically a good fit, so I would say it runs a bit small. The dress also looked VERY WORN. It has apparently been worn and cleaned many times and probably was ready for retirement a few rentals ago. Fortunately the details hid those flaws from afar.

This dress was comfy and subtle, yet stunning. It was perfect for the rehearsal dinner.
The detail on the bottom was great but made it a little snug for me - but I tend to be a bit bigger on the bottom anyway. Felt more comfortable sizing up with the 6 rather than the 4 I normally wear.

Loved walking around in this dress!
I loved the look of this dress. The bead work was beautiful. When I first put it on at home I fell in love with it. However, when I got to the wedding and finally sat down I was very uncomfortable. The under arm area was very tight as well as the waistband. I am curious as to how the size 8 would have fit. Other than that, I received a lot of compliments and was happy I picked this dress as my first RTR!

loved the dress
The dress style was exactly what I was looking for. I am usually between a 2 and 4. Ordered both and ended up wearing the 4. It was still a little tight in the bust area. Length was a tad short (would work well for someone shorter) but overall I liked it

Cool, edgy up top; flirty, feminine on bottom
My original choice, which was the same dress but with the mustard skirt, was unable to make it to me due to the severe storm on the East Coast. They were able to send me a very comparable dress which I was fine with, although a little disappointed because the skirt looked black in the picture and I wanted a more vibrant look. But who was I to be ungracious when, I'm sure, the people involved with getting me a replacement were probably much more disadvantaged. When the dress arrived, I was so happy that the skirt was actually blue! The colors of the wedding I was going to were blue and mustard so it would work out really well. I was also pleased that the delicate beading of the bodice and pleats in the skirt were all perfect even though it was apparent that it wasn't a brand new dress (slight wear on edges of silk chiffon). I ordered both the size 4 and 6 and ended up going with the 6. The 4 was very snug in the waist and bodice and the 6 gave me a bit more breathing room. I wore it with a blue feathered headband, rhinestone hoop earrings, black tights (because the outdoor wedding venue was freezing at night), and Anaconda cut-out booties.

fun party dress...just beware, it runs small in the bust!
I had been scoping this dress out on rtr for a while. I loved the style, and the fact that you could wear a "normal" bra with it. The colors were fun (the skirt is a nice navy blue), and the embellishment on the top is fun and sparkly. Had a few minor-ish issues: first off: the bust runs really small. I'm usually a 4, maybe a 6, and while the 6 fit great in the skirt and waist, I had to wear the 8 in this one to get my DD bust into it. Also, the zipper is tough to get up. Lastly, I had a service issue with RTR on this one: they sent me a 12 instead of an 8!! I had to call and get them to overnight me the 8 direct to the event for me to wear! Luckily, the staff on the phone was great and super helpful and took care of everything (thanks Toni P!!!). Was just a bit anxious about that mix-up.

Beautiful dress, didn't end up wearing it because it was a little too dressy for what I wanted.
I am normally a size 6, and the 6 was very tight. The 8 fit very well. The details on this dress are great and the skirt part of the dress is fun! Even thought I didn't end up wearing the dress, I would keep it in mind for future events where it might be a better fit.

Stood out and got loads of compliments at office holiday party
This dress was a bit tight on the hips, but otherwise fit well. I usually wear a 6 and was surprised to find that the 8 was comfortable. Some other issues: the zipper was a bit wonky and some of the beading was broken when I received it. All that being said, I don't think anyone noticed the beading but me (the majority of the party was low-light). People loved the dress and complimented the choice - among a very fashionable and well-dressed office of coworkers, this dress helped me stand out.

high impact but fits very snug
i originally ordered this dress in yellow, however, the backup size was not available in that color so i received it with the blue skirt. And thank god! The yellow dress in size 8 wouldnt even zip! the blue one in also a size 8 fit but was a little tight especially int he bust and im only a B cup...im thinking there was a wrong label somewhere. i ended up having a great night in this dress; it is very flattering, i got lots of compliments and felt beautiful.

I didn't end up wearing this dress, due to fit, but it is very pretty and well made.
The dress fit fine on my top half, but it was VERY snug in the skirt, specifically in the thigh area. I think it would be better on someone who is straighter/narrower.

Cute
I liked this dress, though it did run a bit small and short. On a previous occasion, I had worn the Sachin + Babi Petal to the Metal dress and I preferred that one. It didn't run as small on me (I wore the 8 in that one) and I felt like a knockout in it. This one was cute, too, and I probably would have liked it even more if I hadn't rented the other one first.

Great Cocktail/Wedding Dress
The dress is very pretty but did not fit my body type properly. The 0 was a little too tight around the waist and a little too baggy on top for my small bust. The 2 was a little too baggy around the waist and extremely baggy in the chest area so I decided not to wear the dress.

I didn't end up wearing this dress for the wedding I rented it for.
I liked the dress, but I'm wider in the hip area so even the larger size seemed to tight around the hips for me to enjoy a night of eating, drinking, and dancing. It was very pretty though!

Too bad
I've been waiting for an excuse to try this dress for a really long time! I ordered in the 4 and 6 (a 6 can sometimes be too large for me). Ladies, if you have substantial boobs, this may not be the dress for you! It's very unforgiving in the fit on top, and it was SUPER tight under the armpits. It was so tight that I could see my bra clearly under the fabric in the back... um, unflattering. I could have just worn a jacket, but I would have been uncomfortable and miserable all night. Sent this one back and ran out to buy a dress the day of the wedding. Bummer!

I really loved this dress in the picture, but it is really a LOT shorter than pictured - much more similar to the "Dare me to Dance" dress. I am still wearing it but since I was specifically looking for a knee length dress, this was disappointing.

Loved this dress! I wore it to a dinner event and it was perfect! Be aware that it is long in this picture. In actuality it is exactly like the Dare Me to Dance and Petal to the Metal in terms of fit. The beading on the front adds just the right amount of flare! Will definitely rent this dress again - i got so many compliments!!

Stunning!
Absolutely loved this dress. Certainly a show stopper!! It was quite a bit shorter on me than in the photo. Almost two short, which is the only reason I'm taking off a star. Otherwise, perfect dress!!! I wore it with black pumps. Because of all the sparkle on the top, I think it looks better with a bracelet than a necklace.

Love this dress!!
I wore this dress for my bridal shower, and I absolutely loved it! I received so many compliments, and I was so happy with my choice. The dress fit true to size, although the length is different than in the picture. The dress is actually much shorter, about mid thigh rather than knee length. I loved the dress either way and didn't mind it being so much shorter than I had anticipated, but renters should beware if they are looking for a knee length dress, as this was not. There is also definitely not any give with the fabric, which is stated. I'm usually a 4 or 6 and had to go with the 6. Overall I was really happy with my purchase! I would definitely rent again!

Fun Dress!
I rented this for a wedding but ended up wearing it to a party/night out the night before. It is a beautiful and unique dress. The details in the dress are fun not flashy. I thought it was best set off with some blingy earrings and maybe a bracelet or two but not too much more than that. Based on the other reviews, I was prepared and hoping for a shorter dress, but in reality, it hit right above the knee (like in the picture). My only complaint is that I wish the top was a little more fitted around my ribs. I usually wear a 2 or 4 in dresses and the 4 fit well. I got a 6 as a backup size and the hips were way too big. I got a ton of compliments on the dress and wish I could have kept it!

Great Dress!
Loved this dress - it is absolutely beautiful and very flattering! Runs true to size, was a littler shorter on me than pictured (though I usually expect this because of my height) but not uncomfortable. Was also a little tight under the arms. I would suggest sizing up for back up. Overall a fantastic dress!

It was very comfortable and easy to dance and sit in. I received lots of compliments and the style was perfect for the occasion. I told everyone where I got it, of course!
I rented this dress for a NYE Wedding and was so glad that I did. I usually wear a 6 or 8, but the 6 was sold out for that night. The 8 was a little loose, but the fabric doesn't have any stretch to it, so it worked out. I have a smaller bust, and could see bigger busted girls feeling a bit squeezed in. I definitely recommend this dress!

walking into the party and having everyone stare . . . :)
This was my first RTR rental. I rented this dress for a NYE party and was so pleased with this dress. I got a million compliments and everyone said it looked so sophisticated on. I had absolutely no issues with this dress, it was so easy and comfortable, I could sit and dance. It was amazing I would definetely rent it again. I usually wear a 2 but I got a 4 for a backup, I wore the 4 because I like a looser fit. But overall, this dress was a perfect 10!

The time, the place, and the DRESS all combined made my RTR moment unforgettable!
It definitely runs true to size. I currently have a size 12 upper half and a size 8 lower half, so I usually go in between and it feels a little tight up top. The skirt was beautiful; I loved the unique pleating. The top part of it was just a perfect amount of sparkle.

I can't even begin to explain how stunning this dress is in person. I received so many compliments when I wore it. The dress is a bit shorter than it appears, but I'm pretty petite so it wasn't a huge problem.

cute and conservative
i actually didn't wear this dress because it was a backup for the one i actually wore. but... i did try it on and wear it around my house. :) very cute and conservative. i am around 128 pounds and 5'6" and the 4 fit perfectly. if i remember correctly, i think the top was a tad big on me (my bust is 34A), so if you have a bit more up top it would fit even better i'm sure.

Love this dress!
I wore this dress to my law school formal and absolutely loved it- and I got compliments on the dress all night! The details both on top and in the fabric of the dress are intricate and beautiful. It is comfortable and easy to dance in. You barely need accessories because the dress is so interesting. Plus, the cinched waist is very flattering. The only thing I didn't like was the weird black flaps on the shoulder but I barely noticed them after a few minutes. Would definitely rent again!
