Everyone loved my dress and was constantly asked where I got it
Fit is pretty snug and a little hard to move around in.

Really pretty, understated dress for a daytime graduation
I wanted a light, breathable dress to wear for my husband's MBA graduation, where I'd be outside all day! However, I'm not attaching a picture because it ended up being kind of a cooler day, so I had to wear a cardigan over it the whole day. It fit very well, was nice, and breathable and understated. However, the only comment was that the 'pucker' for your boobs seemed like it hit a little bit above where my boobs are. I do have kind of a long torso, so I'd say if your torso is longer, keep that in mind. It wasn't noticeable to anyone but me, though, but it did kind of bother me - hence the only 4 stars.

Very cute dress, great for day and evening affairs!
I wore this dress to my little brother's graduation, and then again later that same day to a friend's wedding! The fit was a big snug on me and I'm usually a 10, but I was still comfortable. I liked the length, too - I can't wear things that are too short, so this one gave me enough coverage. The only criticism I had was that it wasn't very breathable! This was particularly noticable in the front bust area - not very breathable and would have been an unfortunate choice for a July or August wedding. For my purposes, though, this dress was great.

Elegant!
Sister rented the dress (5'3, 34B, pants 25, usually dress size 0) size 0 fit perfectly! Classy and elegant. Slightly lighter in color than shown on the website, which was fine for us. But just know that sometimes it looks closer to white in photos-- depending on light. Beautiful and fit her perfectly. I also tried it on (5'2, 32A, pants 26, usually dress size 0). I have larger hips than most ppl my size, but it was form fitting and cute! Roomy in the chest but wasn't a deal breaker. Just looked better on my sister!

It's a really cute dress, but is not cut for someone who is petite like me.
Loved the dress, but the waist hit a bit too low making it look kind of schlumpy on top. I wish it came in a petite size so the torso was a little shorter!

Wore this to my graduation.
This dress was exactly how I expected it to be. I especially like the condition the dress came in. It seems to be a newer dress and seemed like it had never been worn. It laid so nicely. The fabric, hems, zippers, etc were pristine. I am between a size 2 and 4 and went with the size 2 in this dress. It was definitely a little constricting in the shoulders but otherwise loose and comfortable. I paired this with a skinny black belt, black peep toe pumps and oversized pearl studs.

Great color - cute, flattering dress!
The dress is more pink than it looks in the pictures, which I liked (I was instructed to wear 'blush" to a wedding) I wore the 4 and probably could have done the 2. The top is really flattering!

Gorgeous, classy dress for spring/summer weddings
This dress was so flattering and beautiful. The lace was high quality, and the length is perfect - not long enough to look matronly and not so short that you feel self-conscious. My one and only complaint is actually not with the dress itself...unfortunately, the size 4 (my size) clearly had not been dry-cleaned since the previous renter, because the underarms reeked of body odor. I did my best to air it out/perfume the heck out of it in the day before the wedding because I was determined to wear it -- it was just so pretty. I generally love RTR but felt obligated to comment on this issue.

perfect for the wedding
Wore this to my cousins wedding. It was a religious affair so i had to be conservatively dressed and this dress did the trick. The body of the dress in size 8 would have been better but because I am broad in the back /shoulder area I had to wear the 10. And even in the 10 I couldn't really lift my arms ! but I didn't care because I got loads of compliments on the dress!

Pretty in pink
Beautiful vintage inspired dress perfect for being a bridesmaid in my friend's wedding. The top and sleeves were a bit tight, and I probably should have called customer service and had the next size shipped but opted not to. The other reviews mentioned it fitting larger, so I went with that, but have broad shoulders and larger arms. Overall, really beautiful and anyone would be happy with this dress.

Loved this dress! Perfect for the occasion!
I usually wear a 4 or 6, but because reviews said this dress runs big, I got a 2 as my backup size. Turns out, that the 4 fit great! The 2 also fit, but it was a bit too snug on my shoulders. The color of this dress was exactly what I was looking for! It's true to the picture. Also, I had a pair of nude pumps I wanted to wear with this dress and was a bit concerned the dress may be too short for heels. However, the hem hit me just above the knee (maybe by an inch and a half or two.) Again, it was perfect!

Got as a back up when original order wasn't available.....
I would never wear this dress, ever. I tried it on and my sister asked me to "please, don't wear that." The dress itself was pretty, but I think just overall I'm not a fan of lace, and the neck was very high so I felt like a tablecloth. This was sent to me as a back up when the original dress I ordered from RTR wasn't available; so not my choice.

Didn't love the dress but loved the experience !
The dress was definitely nice and worked well for my friend 's wedding, but I didn't think it was super amazing or unique. I think this dress would also work better on someone who is less curvy (without some hips!) or has a thinner waist. I feel like it made me look a little boxy. The color is pinker than the picture but I liked it better that way. I also normally would have worn a 4 but the 2 fit better and didn't have baggy spots. This was my first experience with RTR and despite me not absolutely loving the dress, I loved the experience and would definitely rent again!

I rented this as a back up for a wedding.
The dress was very pretty in person, but the high neckline and longer sleeves look odd on someone with a big bust. It seemed a little matronly to me, and ran big.

dainty and feminine but loose
The fit wasn't quite right for my very petite body, but it was a lovely dress and color. It's probably better for a taller person with slim to curvy build. I didn't end up wearing it to my friend's baby shower due to the awkward fit, but I did admire the fabric for quite a while. The sleeves hit awkwardly on my arms as well. The zipper shows some wear, but the dress is still in great shape. RTR has great customer service, and I will be renting again. Can't wait to find the perfect dress.

The dress fit perfectly and I got tons of compliments!
Wore this dress to a wedding. The dress goes well from church to reception. There is not much give in the dress and it is a bit tight in the bust. I'm a 34DDD and I usually wear a size 8 but I went up to a 10 so that I had a bit more room I the chest.

Bridal Shower Perfection!
Like a few other girls, I wore this dress for my bridal shower. It was October in Michigan so I paired with black tights and black booties + pearls. The dress fit great, ran true to size, although it was a bit longer on me. I liked the length, it was different than the normal length I wear, it was almost to my knees. I got tons of compliments on this great dress, I would love to own it!

I wore this dress to my son's baptism. Very sophisticated and lovely.
Loved this dress! It fit pretty well considering I wore it 4 1/2 months after my son was born via repeat c-section. And after 2 c-sections, my body (midsection, really) is totally out of whack. As info, my current measurements are: bust - 38 inches; waist - 33 inches; hips - 39 inches; weight - 148 lbs. The waist of the dress was snug but, like I said, my midsection is much thicker than the rest of my body. Spanx helped but aren't a must if your measurements are more proportionate. Definitely long enough to be acceptable for church on my 5'4" frame.

Back up dress. Didn't wear. Pretty but too light of a pink for my skin.
See through so make sure you have all nude or skin-tone undergarments. Also the pink washed me out.

Perfect for my niece's first communion
This was sent to me overnight because the original dress I ordered did not fit. The stylist I spoke to helped me pick out this dress and sent me another (church appropriate) dress just in case. The service alone was worth full stars but the dress was lovely as well. The color is a little more pink than in the picture online and the dress was very flattering. All of my cousins were impressed with my rented dress. The neckline is conservative and the length is pretty modest as well, so this is a good dress for church events.

How easy it was!
Fit was perfect and true to size. I am 5'7 and some dresses aren't long enough, but this was. I wore it as an honorary bridesmaid! Got lots of compliments. Only cons were lace trimming could get a little wrinkled and the zipper stuck a bit.

Very nice dress :)
I rented a 4 and 6, but wore the 6 because it had a little more room for me to move my shoulders (and pick up my kids). Zipper stuck a little bit but no mishaps! I rented it to match my daughter, and everyone had great things to say about the dress. It was for an outdoor wedding in May, the material wasn't too stifling. Overall GREAT pick :)

Beautiful dress, just not for my body type
Unfortunately, this dress did not fit me. I had read other reviews from women that were my size (or close to it), and thought it might work for me as well, but this dress was just too large/boxy on me, rather than fits true to size. I'm about 96lbs and 5'2" and it was just really long on me. It would probably be more flattering on someone who is taller and had a fuller chest, to be quite honest. It was a real shame that I wasn't able to wear this dress! I loved the delicate sleeves and pale pink color. Better luck next time!

Very cute dress
This dress is adorable and looks great- actually looked very slimming on as well. However, I was unable to wear this dress as it was too tight in the bust area- I do have a 34-G so I already know that its incredibly difficult to find dresses that accommodate my body type (as I am not as large everywhere else on my body). It was so tight over my bust that it actually made it look like I had divots in my chest- looked awful! I think it would be great on someone who does not have an abnormally large bust! Very disappointed I didn't get to wear this dress to the wedding!

I loved this dress. It was flattering, classy and gorgeous!
the small lace trim in the middle didn't stay down, as you can see in some of my engagement photos but, it didn't ruin anything for me. I'm a 34E and a size 2/4 so, I'm hard to fit and I loved this dress!
