Absolutely beautiful dress -- beautiful detail and comfortable to wear!

This dress was fantastic! I got so many compliments. RTR actually sent me this because my first dress choice didn't fit. I'm so glad they did. The detail on this dress is amazing! Because of the open back, you can't wear a bra, so take that into account. The fabric was thick/supportive enough that I wasn't uncomfortable, though. It's got plenty of room in the hips and isn't tight around the rib cage. I ended up wearing the 4 (even though this review says 6; 4 was my backup size and isn't showing up as an option), and it fit perfectly. Great dress!

Beautiful dress for fall wedding

This is a beautiful dress! I ordered my regular size and a size larger. I wore my regular size (8), but I would highly recommend sizing down. The bottom of the dress is looser and longer than expected. I was worried about wearing this without a bra, but it provides great support.

Lots of compliments all night long. This is a very unique, classy dress. Only wish it was mine!

True to size. A little tight around the lower back, and the hook and eye are threaded very poorly. But not noticeable to Anyone.

Fall floral with pockets!

When I rented the dress, I couldn't tell what type of print it was from the stock photos. They're floral! The dress was perfect for a fall wedding. I have a small chest and felt the dress was structured enough that I didn't worry about wearing a bra, which would definitely show in the back. I didn't notice much of a difference between the 0 and 2 except for in the chest and neck. The chest was huge on the 2! And the inseams are really close together, oddly so (hence the 4 stars) that point out like a little Madonna top. So I chose to wear the zero but found that sitting for a while would pull the neck tighter and it got a little uncomfortable. After the reception, I changed into the 2 for the night out figuring no one would notice my Madonna cones in the dark. Loved this dress though, the print and fabric are perfect for the fall and winter! And the back is so fun- definitely got a lot of compliments on the dress!

Comfortable unique dress

Really unique dress- comfortable to wear- doesn't require a bra and not super fitted but still flattering . The back fits a little bit looser than the model picture illustrates. Heavy material with good structure . Great for formal affair

Gorgeous, classy open back dress was perfect for my husbands holiday party

Dress fit great except for the top. Unable to wear a bra which is no problem for me as I'm extremely flat chested...the top of this dress is made for someone with at least a B cup size if not bigger. If I'd planned better and had more time I probably could have bought a stick bra with lift to help fill it out. I don't think anyone probably noticed but me though! Beautiful material, thick and well made. I received lots of compliments. I paired it with turquoise earrings for a pop of color and a gold glittered clutch... all rented. So fab! Love RTR!

This dress was fabulous!

This dress runs big for sure. I usually wear a size 4 and the size 2 fit perfectly. It fit very well and I didn't have to wear a bra.

This dress is flattering and unique.

I rented the 6 and the 8 and the 6 fit best. Because I am small chested, I needed to use some Hollywood tape to seal up the gaps. If I owned it I would have shortened the straps a bit. But, I still think it looked great. It was comfortable. The length was great, just above my knees. It was such a unique look.

So easy! So many choices!

This is a GREAT dress, and I got tons of compliments. True to size, but large in chest. I'm 5'7" athletic build, 130lbs and a 34B, normally wear a 2 or 4, and a 2 was still a little big. Partially because of backless design. Would rent again.

First two dresses were too large, RTR sent a new size immediately. Incredible service!

LOVED this dress. I selected this photo so you could somewhat see the back and front. Definitely runs large, I even went a size down and needed double sided tape to help keep the back from popping up. So comfortable and the pockets are a great plus!

Flattering neckline

Agreed with other reviewers- this dress runs very large on the top. I loved the unique pattern and the flattering neckline, but thought the cut of the bottom was not the most flattering thing I've worn. I loved it none the less. Also- I thought the two panels in the back were closer to each other than they ended up being in reality.

Runs large, not great for short people, but very cute -- plus pockets!

The dress is gorgeous and is cut very stylishly. However, the straps were seriously long and needed expert pinning for the bodice of the dress to fit properly at all. It was not an easy fix but I made it work. I'm short, with a short torso and a large bust. I'm actually a 34G (5D), not a 34D, but RTR doesn't even have that option... Once I got the straps to a good length, the dress was sufficiently supportive and I didn't feel like I needed a bra. The length ended up being past the knee on me, almost to mid calf, but midi dresses are in style, so it worked well! I definitely had to size down substantially for this dress. I wear a 10 in pants (30-31 in jeans) but usually wear a size 8 in dresses. The size 6 in this dress fit perfectly. The dress didn't flare too much in the hips, and it didn't make me look hippier than I am. It was flattering and I got several compliments on it!

So Glamorous!!! All about the back!

This dress was absolutely beautiful. It felt great looked amazing. The top of the dress was a bit big for my smaller frame, but besides that it fit perfectly. I wore it to an evening wedding and had so many people come up to my table to compliment the dress. I absolutely recommend!!

This dress fit true to size. I am 5'10" and I wear a 32DD top. This dress was perfect. I think it may run big if you a have a small chest. Great dress, I will rent again.

Beautiful dress!

This my first time using RTR and it was a great experience! The dress was beautiful and in perfect condition. I received many compliments during the night. I typically wear a 6, but read the reviews saying this dress runs a little big. I ordered a 6 and 4. The 6 was pretty big through the chest and the 4 was a little tight on my waist. I ended up wearing the 4 because it fit better overall, but honestly either would have worked.

Perfect wedding outfit. With pockets!!

I had never used RTR so I was nervous about the dress. The print was beautiful & the pockets were a huge bonus. The top portion was a bit roomy & the length was a bit longer than I anticipated. But overall, I loved the dress & received a ton of compliments!

Pockets!

This dress does run large. I normally wear a 6 or 8 and I pulled off the 4 easily. Wore no bra, and got compliments all night long. Best of all it had pockets and is extremely comfortable.

Great evening wedding dress

What a fun dress and since it has pockets, I didn't need to deal with a purse during the wedding and dancing. The material is a bit heavier, so I didn't have to worry about a bra. I would definitely rent this one again!

First wedding anniversary!

This dress is amazing and made me feel so sassy! Such a fun dress to wear. This runs TTS through the waist, but it was pretty large through the top. I went braless to dinner but would have probably needed to find a nu bra if I was wearing this for dancing. Comfortable and definitely a stand-out dress!

Beautiful but weird fit

I wanted this dress to work because it's so pretty , but the fit was just all wrong. The 4 was too tight at the waist but the back part was strangely loose and didn't lay flat. The 6 was way to huge in the bust and too long for my torso....so exchanged it for a different dress at the store.

Took a risk on a midi dress as a petite girl - and it was well worth it!

Being short at 5' 2", I definitely took a risk renting this dress. Luckily, the length ended up being really flattering and hit right below the knee. I decided to pair it with platform heels to provide myself with some additional height. The back of this dress is GORGEOUS, but be warned that the top runs a little large. I ended up wearing a size 0, and it fit pretty much perfectly, but I did have a little room to spare in the top. I wore a sticky bra to fill it out a little more, but I don't think it was super noticeable. Overall, gorgeous dress and amazing fabric for a fall wedding (almost like upholstery). So happy I decided to give this dress a try!

Hi Mandy, I wanted to ask you a question as to what you suggest to rent--we have the same measurements, but I have a slightly more athletic build. I was going to go with a 4 and a 2, but you seem to have gone smaller. Do you suggest I do the 2 and the 0?

Party dress - Rehearsal dinner

I rented this for a rehearsal dinner. The dress length was great for me, hitting right above the knee (I am 6ft tall and all leg). The pockets are great and the fabric is really nice. Color in person is the same as in the picture. I did not wear a bra with the dress because of the open back; you don't need one because of the thick fabric. Nothing shows :)

Perfect Cocktail Dress

Rented this dress for a cocktail attire wedding in the Dominican Republic. It was the perfect dress. A few things to note: It runs large! I traditionally wear a size 4 and comfortably wore a size zero. Also do note the fabric is a bit heavy- so it is perfect for a fall or spring wedding but too warm for a summer wedding. Lastly-- it runs a bit long in the skirt as you can see in the photo. Otherwise great dress!

I was worried that the stiff fabric would be uncomfortable but I wore this to an mostly indoor wedding and was so comfortable and pretty. Loved that it had pockets so I was able to walk around without my bag. Got a ton of compliments and would definitely rent this dress again.

Received countless compliments and I felt beautiful in my dress!

Beautiful, thicker fabric that allowed for NO BRA and was perfect for the October gala I rented it for. The back detailing was beautiful, the design had just the right amount of sparkle, pockets were handy, and it surprisingly was a very appropriate length which is hard to find for us tall women! Gorgeous dress- would definitely rent again!

Amazing dress with a fun back!

I wore this dress to my brother's wedding in New Orleans. The black and gold was a great taste of New Orleans and the dress was perfect for an event with my kiddos! Higher neckline and a longer hemline ensured I was properly covered even when in full mom mode! But the open back made me feel fun and not frumpy! I wore a backless bra with this and it worked perfectly! Everything was amazing about this dress!

Must rent!

I wore this to a work cocktail party and it was fantastic! So comfortable and different. Really liked the open back and it has pockets, which is always a big plus. Material is fun yet not too flashy. Runs large as the usually wear an 8 yet fit into the 4 because the skirt is very flared. Definitely would recommend this one!

Loved the thick material of this dress. Wore to an outdoor ceremony in florida and was very comfortable! Didn't have to wear a bra which was also a great perk! Only thing I did not like was that the bust area runs large. Other than that dress was wonderful!

Weird fit, horrible RTR experience!

This dress was pretty, but definitely fit strangely. It was too big in the top, so I wore the smaller size, but that meant it was very tight in the waist. Also, this is a review of RTR. It was a disaster! I had ordered a dress for the rehearsal dinner and another dress in two sizes for the wedding the next day. My dresses arrived a day later than they were supposed to (so I couldn't wear the one for the rehearsal dinner because I didn't physically have it) and they weren't able to ship the dress I wanted for the rehearsal dinner, so they shipped another one instead and I hated it. I have the app so I got a notification that my order had shipped, so, foolish me, I didn't check my email where they had sent me an email at 8pm the day before I was supposed to receive the dresses telling me the dress I wanted had been replaced with the ugly dress they did send me. Needless to say, I didn't have the dress I ordered, or any dress, for the rehearsal dinner. I did receive the dresses in time to choose the correct size for the wedding and wore it without problem. My money was refunded and the customer service lady was apologetic, but that didn't change that it had added stress to an already busy and stressful weekend that was supposed to be made easier by using RTR. I won't be recommending RTR to anyone, and all of the folks at my work conference heard about the horrible experience I had and I doubt they'll be interested in it at all. I am thoroughly unimpressed.

Perfect fit with pockets!

This was a perfect dress for a wedding. High-neck, movable shape, and pockets! It does run a bit large- so I was able to fit into the size 2. Would recommend with either shoe, but I wore the sandal!

Gorgeous fabric, full skirt, generous room on top

The fabric in this dress was stunning. The top ran a bit big but that really worked for me as I usually don't fit in this style of dress. I'm wider on top with narrower hips. The skirt was full. I think it swallowed me some. It came to just below my knee at my 5'1" height. On someone taller it would fall at a perfect cocktail length. The open back was flattering because it showed the middle and made you look narrow.
