Pretty but runs large

Pretty dress and very comfortable but runs large especially if you are pear shaped and smaller on top than bottom. I gained some weight recently and was actually worried it may be too small but I had to pin the straps up a bit and wear a blazer over it because the top and waist was so big it was falling off. If I had sized down one or even two sizes it would've been great.

Top is weird

I wanted to love this dress. Top is a bustier style under the thick straps. Straps kept falling off my shoulders. Waist is very small. Overall weird dimensions did not wear

Pretty and flowy dress!

LOVED this dress! It doesn't help that I received a brand new one with the tag still on but this dress was perfect and beautiful. A little large in the breast area ( even with a D cup) compared to the tighter waist. Would make for a beautiful spring wedding dress. Would have bought it in a heart beat if it was cheaper.

Large on top

I needed a size down in this dress - the straps are too long and the top runs large. I wanted to wear this, but the straps kept slipping off

Way too tight around the bust. I'm a 34DD with a small back so usually fit fine into a size 4, but the girls were overflowing on this dress. Couldn't wear it.

Fun and festive

This is the perfect dress for RTR because it is a one and done kind of thing. Perfect for a night out for a party where I wanted to feel fun and festive. Does run tight so I followed advice and got a couple sizes up. Loved it.

Unusual hemline and lovely fabric

This dress is so pretty! Rented for a party but ended up wearing to work with a cardigan and boots. Usually between a 6/8 and this was a 6 (UK 10). The material is a pretty design and lightweight silk. Lots of details and especially liked the top, which was comfortable and had enough coverage that didn't need to wear a bra. The hemline is so eye catching. Really enjoyed wearing it and considered buying it!

Starry Night

Tons of compliments. I'm glad I had reviews prior to renting. This dress really runs small- I went up 2 sizes and that fit very well without being too loose. Love the material. Would definitely rent again

Such a cute dress, wish it fit!

Too small, didn't wear. To echo another reviewer, I found this super tight in the waist but well fitting in the chest. If I had sized up, probably would have been too large in the chest. Recommend for women with a larger chest and smaller waist, but didn't work for me!

It was a the tiniest bit big, and like other reviews mentioned the straps were a tad long, however I was able to wear it no problems and loved it!

Size up, but not 2 sizes.

After reading the reviews I decided to rent a size 8 even though I am usually 4-6. The dress was too big. I should've gone with a size 6. I was able to make it work with some safety pins and wearing 2 bras. Overall cute dress, but don't size up 2 sizes.

Size up if you have boobs!

This dress was everything I hoped it to be, but I could not zip the last 2.5" up. It was crushing the girls. I am a 36D and a 25" waist and the waist was a bit loose, but I did not want to pop a seam in the bust. I'd consider renting again in the next size up, but I'm always a 10 EU in this designer. The fabric is so amazing and the cut is very flattering.

This dress was AMAZING!!!

Every single girl that saw me definitely made a point to ask me about this dress! It was PERFECT!!!!! The silky yet sophisticated nature of it made it a perfect Easter dress and then the perfect transitional dress to an outdoor corn-hole game playing day! Definitely was tight on my chest (I'm a 34C), but nothing I couldn't manage or that didn't still look ok! The waist was also a bit snug, but nothing us women haven't dealt with before. I'm glad I didn't size up because then it would've been too big!

Perfect party dress for my 30th

LOVED this dress. It was incredibly flattering/slimming and turned out great in photos. Compliments all night. Runs just a touch big but barely noticed. Can't wear a bra with the dress but that didn't stop me!

Couldn't fit :(

Beautiful dress but sadly I don't fit in any of the sizes I got. Given it's a British/European brand I'd say it runs small a lot.

A perfect closing night look!

I will say this brand is tighter in the ribs than you'd imagine, so I went with the US size 6 instead of the usual 4! Also if you're picky about straps staying in place, the starry overlayer has a tendency to slide around a little bit, but I put some fashion tape on the shoulders and it stayed right in place. The easy breezy skirt made for a perfect summery vibe!

wore it to a rehearsal dinner and got tons of compliments on it.

I was nervous about this one because of all the reviews. I think this dress is best for tall people since the straps are not adjustable. I am small busted so i wore a strapless bra to fill it out a bit. moved super nicely and it was a light material. Would wear again!

Pretty, but a bit fussy

It runs a bit small and the straps kept falling off my shoulders. Loved the details, the neckline and the fun hem. Good length for me.

Beautiful, but not for me

This dress is so beautifully made and so unique. Unfortunately, the top of the dress was too tight for me (36DD) and couldn't get it zipped. So bummed

I loved the pattern and the unique hemline of this dress. The bodice detail was also interesting!

I was concerned about the fit based on the other reviews and sized up as recommended. I usually wear an 8 and ended up wearing a size 14. Don't get hung up on that detail - just go for this fun, flirty style!!!

I loved the look of this dress but be aware if you have a petite length torso, the straps will be too long.

Runs small but very fun and perfect for dancing

Runs very small in the back/waist. Had to go up two sizes from my normal size to zip up (although I do have a relatively broad back for my size), but then the chest was a bit large. However, I fixed it with fashion tape and wore it to a wedding. A very fun print and soft material that earned me lots of compliments.

Loved! Sexy and also classy

I loved this dress but didn't end up wearing it. I rented it for bachelorette party in Vegas but my friends preferred another dress (they said this one was too conservative! Ha!). It fits true to size but the chest section was a bit tight on me (36C) but not a big deal.

Perfect dress for a casual chic party. I received many compliments.

The straps run large but I pulled the dress down lower on my hips and it solved that problem. I’m glad because the dress is pure fun. The layers are flattering and the material is perfect for an outdoor event on a hot summer evening. The 14 (UK size) was the right fit for me. I usually wear a 10.

Sooooo cute

Originally rented this dress for girls' night, but my boyfriend said "WOW" haha so it turned into a date night dress instead! I found the UK 4 = US 0 to be roughly true to size, small at the waist but still expects you to have some boob. Chest area / straps were a little large on me as you can see in the photo but I made it work.

Dreamy! but tiny in the chest

Sigh...LOVE this dress...so did my hubby but my "girls" didn't. So I couldn't wear. I'm sending it back and hopefully can get it in a larger size. I'm 5.4 and 1/2 but have a longer torso and chest. I could zip this and it looked amazing but the sheer gauze of front just squeeze the girls in too much. I think a size up from a 10 to 12 would be perfect. I'm normally a 6 and occasionally a 4. ++UPDATED++ I ordered again but in a 12 (keep in mind the italian sizing) It was SPECTACULAR! It was about 1/4-1/2 inch bigger in back and chest than the 10. Everyone LOVED it. It is sexy. I felt like a million bucks and will be hanging on to this one for a bit.
