Hard to decide on this one

This is a dress I have a love/hate relationship with because of a few things: the sizing, fabric and cut. From the photos, it's adorable. So retro. But in person I'm not sure it comes across so well. Sizing: the ten was too small but the 12 was too big, especially in the skirt area. It added extra "pounds" to an already full dress. The 10 was just too tight in the waist. Fabric: be warned -- the fabric is like a scuba suit. It's that's type, which I didn't realize when I ordered it. From a far, it looks great. Up close, the print is blurry and doesn't feel appropriate for the high-end event I attended. Cut: this tended to flatten the girls and needed a few more inches in the torso length. I also think it cut the arms and made them look larger. Overall, a fine rental for a party, but not a gala.

Nice for graduation. Thicker than expected.

This is a gorgeous, retro dress that's actually scuba material. A little hot for the summer in Georgia, but hid sweat nicely. Fits broad shoulders and a long waist well as the bows are adjustable. Fits tts. Pretty long on my 5'8" frame but overall it was a perfect a-line tea length skirt with some swing. Tons of compliments and was very different but classy.

Cute but elegant; bring the polka dots back!

I wore this to dinner and the premier of Hamilton at the Kennedy center in DC. Received many compliments and it's a good style for someone with a waist or hint of a waist. Only negative is that there is ribbing in the dress and it cuts into your sides a bit. I sized up one just because I wasn't sure if the dress would be a large fit or small. I easily could have worn a smaller size. It's a flexible fabric. But am happy that I chose the size that I did because of the ribbing. Would certainly rent again.

Uncomfy

Material was heavy, cute style though. Vining inside the dress was cutting into skin, not comfortable enough to wear so returned

Cute 50's style dress. Ribbing uncomfortable

Lovely dress. VERY uncomfortable. The wire/plastic bodice was very sharp and poked me all night until I finally stuck bandaids over the areas that were rubbing. Skin was rubbed raw in places. Fabric is much more synthetic then it looks in photos...almost like a swim suit. All that to say, it was still a beautiful dress but wouldn't recommend due to it being quite uncomfortable.

Didn't End Up Wearing

I'm a huge Saloni fan but was really disappointed in the fabric when I received this dress. It was more of a scuba fabric with a raw cut hem which was not portrayed in the photos and was unexpected when it looked so much more tailored.

Stretchy material holds you in

The boning inside the bodice had snapped so the sharp ends kept poking me while I was wearing it. Not sure if the dress had been inspected properly after it came back from it's last rental.

Perfect retro glam

Rented this for a family wedding at a vineyard and it was a big hit! The off - shoulder detail felt so feminine and sexy, especially with a modest tea-length hem. I paired it with a pop of red handbag and pearls for a retro yet timeless ensemble. It was so much fun to dance in :) the shoulders are really snug and you can untie the bows on the shoulder completely to get it at just the right height and fit for you.

Cute dress but....

Love the dress, but not necessarily on me. Interesting fabric, couldn't decide it it was formal enough, though no one else would probably notice that if they didn't touch the fabric. I rented for a wedding farewell brunch, but didn't end up wearing wearing ironically, because the silhouette was too formal for the informal theme. The only real downside was the boning was poking through the fabric / inside seams which was uncomfortable when taking on and off.

Flattering and comfortable

The 10 was a bit big, but I went up on the alternate size instead of down per other reviews, so I wore the 10. The off shoulder didn't ride up or down and the length was perfect for me at 5'9".

Adorable vintage vibe; however the boning in the top of the dress poked sharply. I didn't end up wearing this.

Felt so special! Everyone was complimenting it! For a wedding in cape cod this was perfect!

Perfect size. I'm a size 2 and only 5 feet so it fit well, but almost wished I did a size 0 because it was a little longer than expected but still adorable!

The boning does poke out of the lining ever so often- so prepare to sit straight the whole time you have this on!

The most compliments I've ever received from a RTR dress

The Good: The fabric is thick and stretchy so it holds really well and does not wrinkle. I packed this for a trip and it was perfect for the occasion. The ties on the arm are adjustable so you can loosen them to drop lower on the arm as I did or tie them tighter if you prefer to wear them on your shoulders. The disclaimer: I'm short (5'2") so the dress on me was tea length. For a wedding at night, it was perfect.. but the longer length for a day dress might pose a problem for other shorties if you plan to use it for a more casual setting. The Bad: it has boning built which holds the shape beautifully, but unfortunately it was popping thru the inside of the dress so it was poking me all night long and became super uncomfortable. If I had owned the dress, I would have either added fabrid to re-seal the top and bottom of the boning to secure it in place, or removed it all together... Aws more people rent this.. its going to get worse with wear... spanx that were high wasted saved me the night I wore it!!

super cute!

i'm typically a 4, but have a large waist and saloni runs small so went w the 6 and it fit perfectly w a touch of room so if you have a small waist i wld say this is true to size. hit almost to my ankles because i'm short so looked better w high platform wedges. the ties were comfortable and the boning gave me a great shape. i did find the boning to scratch me a bit, but otherwise the dress was spectacular.

cute style but too long

I wanted to love this dress, but there were just a fit elements that didn't work for me. I'm 5'5, but the tea-length of this dress was a little awkward - it's just too long and comes off as a full-length dress that I'm too tall for (which is well, never the case!). The fabric is stiff and uncomfortable and this dress is such a missed opportunity for pockets. I really expected to love this dress, but it didn't work in person.

Insanely long

I'm 5'4" and would love this dress if only it were 2 feet shorter. Literally, 2 feet. It wasn't tea length; it hit my ankles and looked far more matronly than retro. Bummer for me - but if you're really (really) tall, it's a lovely dress.

Weird fit

So Saloni is one of my very, very faves but this dress was just odd. The fabric is a light neoprene and the bodice it has a draping effect that I did not see in the pictures. It made me look like boobs were going two different ways. not a good look. I returned it immediately.

Sure chic dress!

Loved it but gave it 4 stars bc the boning on the dress was a little uncomfortable when you sit. Other than that it's great!

I didn't like the shiny texture of the fabric.

I found it really unflattering. The texture of the fabric was very shiny and the bodice seemed a bit misshapen.

The fit on this dress was just wonderful.

This dress is a little tight in the sleeves; if you plan your arms up (lots of hugs) this is not the dress for you. However, the skirt is full and would be fun for a dance night. I didn't end up wearing this dress as I choose another but it fit great.

This dress was perfect for a March wedding at a country club!

I am a true 2 and this dress fit perfectly. Was very flattering and comfortable for the most part except for one issue that has been mentioned in previous reviews. I’m not sure why it hasn’t been inspected properly but the boning at the sides is poking through the fabric from wear and tear and the wire was stabbing and scratching my skin during dancing! Was actually painful. Luckily I found a bandaid as a solution but it would be great if it could be mended so no one else has this issue.

Great Fabric, very supportive fit

The dress doesn't have a very full skirt, although the material is on the thick side. The print itself isn't as 'timeless' or simple either, it has various size dots. I felt this dress was very flattering, although the faux wrap on the bodice didn't lay flat.

Lovely dress - tough on the shoulders

The shoulder ties are tricky ... not for the faint of heart. Best to have someone else tie them. Lovely and flattering on the little bump on tummy that I can't seem to get rid of...

Felt pretty and could dance easily

Nice dress! Vintage and feminine. The boning inside the dress hurt a bit and poked into my rib cage. Fit true to size. Great length.
