Perfect birthday dress!!
I absolutely love this dress! The color was bright and so fun for my birthday! The lace touches were absolutely perfect so I went with a simple necklace. I took away one star for the same reasons as many others. The lace along the shoulders was folded under so I had to iron it out then use a little hairspray to make it stay. The dress really should have been starched before being shipped for this reason but I was able to make it work. The inner lining does not have a lot of give so it creates a slight struggle when sitting. There is enough fabric to sit you just need to make sure it isn't bunched underneath you. Also, the little bit of wiring in the torso bugged me by the end of the night. But, all those things only brought it down 1 star. I was sitting most of the time and once I figured out how to arrange the lining I had no problem. The cut of the dress was perfect and flattered my curvy figure. Even better, I was able to wear a regular nude bra underneath!! I received compliments all night and felt amazing. I definitely recommend getting this dress!

Feeling good in a pretty dress all night :)
Loved this dress! It was a beautiful color that photographed very well. Even the smaller size was a little large on the top half (it felt as though the straps were a little baggy) but the length and the rest of the fit were great! Would definitely recommend.

Perfect fit. Loved the color it was bright which I was looking for. The only drawback Was that some of the lace was not sitting flat or correctly on the sleeves and the chest area

Straps are SO long!
The dress is really pretty and form fitting. It has built in support for bra so I did not need to wear one. Wish the dresses on RTR indicated this in their description. The straps are RIDICULOUSLY LONG! So long that I had about three extra inches. I was not going to wear the dress but could not get a replacement dress in time for my event. So I had to fold them over three times and pin them. Otherwise I would have never worn the dress. After I did that though the dress was gorgeous and I received so many compliments! I am a 34dd bust and wear a six, 5'4 and 140lbs. True to size. Not big like others said in reviews. I ordered a 4 and the straps were good with that one but just too tight.

Great color, flattering shape
Unfortunately the straps were much too long and loose. I left the wedding reception to quickly pin them with safety pins. Outside of that, great dress.

Pretty color, long straps.
The dress itself is really pretty. The color is a little more pink than in the photo. I ordered 6 as my backup to the 8, and I'm glad I did, because that is what I wore. The only issue was, as others have stated, the straps are too long, so I had to pin it, which I didn't realize made the chest look a little different until I posted this photo! Overall, I liked the dress.

Gorgeous summer color
This dress was gorgeous all around. I wish I had rented the size 0 because the 2 was a little loose on me. If you have a small chest order down since it will be hard to keep the straps up, even with the corset that's included. I needed to wear a backless strapless bra just for peace of mind. The color glowed and was perfect for a summer night out. It was a comfortable dress, not too long, roomy enough in the hips. I would rent again.

Rehearsal Dinner
The dress fit pretty big up top, but not noticeably. You definitely want to have a decently sized chest to be able to fill out up top as it was still rather large even wearing a bra with it. But I got lots of compliments wearing it and it was easy to move in since it wasn't skin tight!

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.

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.

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.

Beautiful color but lace was a bit tattered
Loved the dress and the color! Perfect for an outdoor wedding in June. It was a little big in the chest (I'm a 32B and wore a size 2). When renting, size down for the 2nd size. I was a bit disappointed in the lace along the neckline and bottom however. In the model image it shows scalloping but that didn't happen when I wore the dress. Probably from the amount of times it has been rented and cleaned.

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!

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.
