Great Color, Not-So-Great Condition
The color was great for an outdoor summer wedding. The fit was nice. It cinched at the waist in a flatterig way, but there was enough room to hide my belly. The straps were not too long for me, although the sleeve portion is all lace. I think it's meant for a strapless bra, but I went with a regular nude bra and you couldn't tell. The inner lining material felt a bit cheap, but outer layer of lace was a very nice quality. I think the dress looks good in pictures, however the condition of it was very worn. The lace at the sleeves and bottom of the dress was very tattered looking, and frayed all over. The sleeves were folded and creased, I had to pull out an iron and steamer to flatten them out so they layed nicely on my shoulders.

Stunning dress
I got so many compliments on the dress. It fit perfectly. A little stiff (sitting down was rough) but it was very beautiful.

Perfect for a bridal shower
This dress was a beautiful color. Super comfortable. Only the tiniest of complaints would be that the lace on the neckline was folded under and wouldn't stay put.

Perfect for a June wedding in Atlanta. Got tons of compliments and was comfortable all night.
Pros: -The color is gorgeous -The length is perfect (I'm 5'5" and it hit about 1.5" above my knee when standing) -The neckline is great -Mostly true to size. I'm usually a size 6 and the 6 fit me well (if a little large on top) Cons: -As everyone else said, the straps are crazy long. I had to pin about 1.5" of excess fabric back. -The fit is a little off if you're not busty. I could have sized down on top, but the smaller size wouldn't have fit my hips. -The slip underneath is pretty tight, which only matters if you're trying to dance. I kept having to pull it up so I could move my legs. -It's low-cut in the back, so a regular bra won't work (but it's not supportive enough to go braless, in my opinion). I had to buy a strap that lowers your bra in the back. Easy fix, but extra money. -Not exactly form-fitting. I have more of an hourglass shape, but this dress didn't cinch at my waist at all. It was more of a straight up-and-down look. Still cute though. -The slip is slightly see-through. Plan to wear nude/light underwear unless you want people to know what color your underwear is. Overall this dress was beautiful (with some minor tweaks), comfortable, and appropriate for the occasion. I would definitely recommend this dress, especially to someone with a larger chest who might fill it out a little better.

this was a fun, bright color for an August wedding
Fit well, a little fitted through the hips. I was able to wear a regular bra which was nice for a change. Looked amazing with the Kate Spade pearl necklace. Was beginning to fray a little but still wore well.

Beautiful lace and rich color :)
It was true to size but tighter at the bottom and looser up top because of my body type.

Great dress, but this one might be on its last legs
Loved this dress. It was a tiny bit tight, but I expected that, since I'm usually a 4 or a 6 and the backup size wasn't available - so I still would review this as being true to size. For the first time in perhaps my whole life, the combination of it being a bit tight and the boning meant I didn't have to wear a bra - very exciting, considering the low back. I got lots of compliments on the color and fit. The dress itself might be on its last legs. The lace around the edges was curling in, despite trying to iron it to stay out, and was also frayed. There was also a spot where the lace had pulled/stretched on the upper chest area - something I'm sure only I noticed, but was a bit disappointing.

The fit was great and I got some compliments! Great for any formal event
I originally got the size 4 to wear but the length and hip area were a little loose, I ended up wearing the extra dress was a size 2 and it fit much better. The shoulder straps on both sizes were too long for my frame, nothing that was falling down but it didn't feel secure for a night full of dancing.

A fun party dress that was very slimming and flattering
It fit great, the boning dug a little into my stomach when sitting but it forced me to sit up straight. I got tons of compliments, would recommend dress for sure!

Beautiful dress!
This was a beautiful dress, both sizes fit well but I chose the 8. The one thing about this dress though is that the torso was a bit longer than expected. The fit wasn't exactly how I thought it would be and the shoulders were pretty loose which made it feel okay but not quite the look that I wanted

It was a great dress for the wedding! I got lots of compliments.
I originally thought I would need to wear the size 12, but the top was too large even though the bottom fit. I ended up wearing the 10 which worked out! The top of the 10 fit perfect but the bottom was a little snug but still comfortable. The hook to clasp the dress was missing so the shoulders of the dress would fall down at times and the dress could've been pressed.

Absolutely beautiful and classy!
I got so many compliments on this dress!! I ordered the 0 and the 2. I am usually between sizes, and if you're like me, size down. The 0 was tight in the hips at first, but it stretched ever so slightly to truly make the dress fit perfect. As other people had warned, the top was a little loose. I am small chested, but my straps only fell once or twice. The 2 was simply too big up top. The dress could be worn with lots of jewelry options, but I went with pearls for the classy evening wedding we were attending. Great dress overall, and I would definitely recommend!!!

Perfect color for a summer wedding!
Dress has built in corset which is great to give you form . Plus it helps not to eat too much at dinner..hehe. The color was so beautiful I had lots of compliments. One con was a bit hard to zip up alone so my hubby was able to give me a hand. Once I got on the dance floor and got to dancing the straps were loose and kept slipping down. I would suggest to use the fashion tape. Overall great dress!

Wore this to a rehearsal. The lace was kind of worn and the straps are a little long but it still worked. I loved the color and got tons of compliments. I'm 5'6 and 125 lbs. usually go between a 2-4 and I even had a little wiggle room in the 2. Beautiful dress and would definitely rent again

This dress made me look and feel like Malibu Barbie!
I wore this dress to a friend's wedding and it was perfect! I received tons of compliments in this dress. It ran true to size, my only problem was that when dancing I had to keep pulling it down, but that happens when lots of dresses since I have long legs. I would recommend this dress to anybody looking to make a classy, sophisticated statement at an upcoming event.

pretty color but couldn't zip it
this dress was generous in the hips/butt area but i couldn't zip it up over DD nursing chest. the 2 and the 4 fit the lower half of my body but not the chest. the straps were stretched out and fell off my shoulders. the dress looked like it had been worn a lot but the color was pretty - kind of a fushia color

Beautiful color, lots of compliments- but...
This dress just missed the mark for me. While the lace detail and color was lovely- the dress was much too large on the top half. The straps were loose and I felt self conscious because my bra showed in the back. It was too loose fitting to wear without a bra, however... Just a little awkward! That being said- the dress photographed well and I got lots of compliments... Just wouldn't recommend for petite people.

Color stands out and turns heads
I wore this to a very formal restaurant and performance afterward for my boyfriend's birthday. He loved this dress, particularly the color. The photo doesn't do the color justice, as it is dimly lit, but the RTR photo is pretty spot on in terms of color. A perfect length for something fun, but not too revealing. Other reviews are right about the straps being way too big, even with the extra clasp closed. To combat this, I wore a strapless bra with some pushup so it filled out the dress a bit more. Still just had to be careful that they didn't slide down too much. Also, a strapless bra can be worn (definitely not a regular bra though, as the straps would show through the lace). Zippers easily and fairly comfortable for a long evening. The color certainly turn heads, too. Would rent again for a spring/summer affair.

The back comes down juuuust low enough that your bra is visible. Can't go bra-less either.

The dress was in good shape. I loved the bright color. I will rent again!
This dress was tight in my hips. A size bigger would have been too loose up top. (A familiar problem with my body type) There was no stretch in the fabric, but it didn't keep me from dancing my tail off at the wedding. It was a little short when sitting, but I just covered my legs with a scarf.

Great dress and color
I wore this to an event for work that was a celebration on the beach. This dress worked great and I got compliments all night. Size wise, I am kind of fluctuating between a 4 and a 6 and if you're like me, size down. Also, like everyone else noticed, the straps are kind of stretched out/long. They never slid off my shoulders fully but they weren't tightly fitted. I'm the only one that noticed though.

Great dress for spring wedding
I normally wear a 10/12. A little tight through the thigh area made it difficult to get in and out of my low car, but it looked great!! Top is more true to size. It has a corset support but not enough by itself, you definitely still need a bra with this if you're bigger than a C cup. I wore a simple nude bra, no need for strapless. Perfect for girls with hourglass figures.

Color was great and lace was very pretty. Perfect for a NYE dress up party.
I wore the size four which is the size I typically wear. I have a bigger bottom than top, so the straps were super long on my really small shoulders. Other than that it for great, and looked perfect with a pair of nude heels.

Cute dress, great color - great for a summer wedding
Cute dress, bright color and wasn't too short is how I'd sum it up. I'm 5'7 and didn't want the dress to be at crotch level when I sat down. I couldn't wear a bra with it (I don't have a big chest, so wasn't a problem), but noticed at the end of the night there was a bra built in that I hadn't seen - so look out for that! The straps were a little stretched out, but still fit fine. I ended up going with the smaller of the two dresses I ordered because of that.

Beautiful color but too big
I absolutely loved the color, but however it just did not fit my body the way I imagined it would. I wore size 0 and I still needed to pin the back in order for it to stay in place. I felt as if it didn't flatter my shape at all. Overall it was a beautiful color and gorgeous lace but the fit just felt baggy.

Beautiful color!
I wore this dress in a zero, and it fit me okay. The biggest downside was the lace on the dress. It stuck out in weird places, and it somewhat cheapened the look of the dress. Had the dress been newer it probably would have looked much better. Overall it worked for the wedding I went to, but I probably wouldn't rent it again.
