Beautiful color, loved the back detail!
Wore this dress for a May wedding and it was beautiful. It is definitely more of a pink color rather than watermelon. The V in the back was stunning. Also five stars that I didn't have to wear a strapless bra (and I have a 32D chest). Very supportive!

Too roomy on top
Very pretty dress and color! The size 2 fit in the waist, but the top was too loose. Would be perfect for someone with a larger bust. Could not wear :(

The color was a lot of fun!
This was a very flattering dress. I have never worn a color like this before but I really loved it! The reason I think it runs a bit large is because lately I have been bigger than a size 4 but this dress fit very comfortably. I rented the 6 as well and they almost fit the same so maybe the 4 was a tad stretched out. There is a corset inside that didn't really fit that well. I'd say that was a con but it wasn't uncomfortable. You don't really need to use it. I didn't wear a bra with this dress... the lace helped hide anything and the top was tight enough to hold me up. I'm 5'4" so you can see how short it falls on my legs. It was easy to dance in and I got loads of compliments. I'd rent it again.

Straps are multiple inches too long
I saw the other reviews saying the straps were long but OMG. Now I normally have to get dresses taken up 0.5-1" in the straps because my torso is apparently a little short, but seriously the straps on this dress were 2-3 inches too long on me. It looked ridiculous and made the dress completely unwearable. I can't see this dress fitting properly unless you have a very long torso.

Comfortable all night
I had hoped to wear a regular bra with this but found it would have shown through the lace. I wore a strapless instead but I really didn't need it; the built-it bra is well constructed and supports better than I expected. The lace is comfortable. Like other reviewers I did find it a little long in the shoulders for me, but it didn't slip out of place. Great for dancing, great for fun splash of color.

Love the color!
I usually wear a 2 or 4 dress, I'm about 117lbs, 5'3, but was able to wear a 0. The straps were a little big bc I'm small busted but I definitely really liked this dress. My only concern was that the lace at the hem, chest and back was worn down and can probably only be worn a few more times. Also, The binding inside was a bit uncomfortable but helped made me feel more secure. I got a ton of compliments on the fit and color, perfect for a summer wedding!

Fun summer wedding guest dress
Fit was great! As others have stated, the straps are a little long so I had my husband safety pin them in the back. I wore a strapless bra and pinned the dress in the front too so the bra wouldn't show. Was able to dance the night away comfortably! Would rent again!

Perfect for a summer wedding!
The color is beautiful and bright. It runs a bit large, especially if you're small chested, so order a size down. It was classy but a bit sexy at the same time. Highly recommend!

Retire this dress - two different dresses are sad.
While this appears to look great on the website, it is time for it to retire. The lace is all frayed on both of the dresses I received and it looks like the lace on the sleeves gets tucked under when it ships or is worn and its all deformed. The color is beautiful, but I would suggest a different style. I didnt wear either version I was sent as it was embarrassing looking. True to size.

Beautiful color
Received a handful of compliments on this dress. Loved the color!! As many renters before me have mentioned, the straps were quite loose and felt them slipping at times. Ideally worn with a strapless bra so the loose straps are a non-issue.

How easy it was to return my dress
Loved the color and the fit of this dress! Only thing I noticed was this dress showed a bit more cleavage than I wanted. So if you don't mind low cut - this dress is great!

Bright spring color!
This dress was perfect for an outdoor spring wedding. The color was beautiful and the dress was comfortable. I wore the 0 because of the strap length, the 2 made the neckline a little too low.

I rented this dress for my 13 year old daughter, who is 5'6. Neither size fit. Did not wear.
Sent dress back early. Did not wear it. Dress was not for me, but for my daughter size 0-2. If you have a reimbursement policy on dress not working, please let me know. Thanks you

I loved the color of this dress. It was comfortable and easy to dance in!!
I got the 8 and the 6 and ended up wearing the 6. It fit perfect. I have a larger chest (36D) and wore a strapless bra, but the built in corset helped a lot. I got a lot of compliments on the color. Others have mentioned that the straps were a little lose, I did notice that, but not to the point that they were falling down.

Pretty color! Just a tad unproportional.
First time renting. I loved the color. I was stuck between wearing the 2 and 4. The 2 was a little tight on my hips but the 4 was a bit too big up top. I decided to wear the 2 and felt comfortable all night minus a tad loose up top when sitting. Good thing I was up dancing most the night!

Bride's favorite color, but not the dress for an hourglass.
After reading the reviews, I sized up (from my normal 10 to a 12). The bottom was still snug. I probably would have still worn it if the top fit better. I am a DDD, so I don't often have issues with the top being too big, but this did not work!

Planned Parenthood Pink Ball fundraiser in DC on Inauguration Day (thus the pink wig.)
Size 4 gave me the fit I like -- skimming the body, not hugging it. Got lots of compliments. As some others have noticed, the straps were a little long -- I pinned them up a bit. And the lace was a little frayed at the edges, but not really too noticeable.

Weird cut...did not work at all!
This dress was so awful for my height I never ended up wearing it. The 4 was too low cut and a little tight around the bust. Then, the 6 was too long, made me look frumpy and worst of all, the straps were so long they kept falling off my shoulders. I had to go buy a new dress and since I couldn't do anything to make this one work. May be better on people who are tall and straight.

I received lots of compliments and I loved the color of the dress.
Pros: great color! The dress was great to stand up in. Cons: the straps were lose, but I expected it based on my body type. The dress was a bit tight sitting in. Overall, it was a good rental!

Unfortunately this didn't work for me.
I'm 5'4", and the shoulder straps were way too long. I wore it to the ceremony, and ended up changing before the reception because the fit was so bad. The way the dress is cut, there isn't a good way to tape the straps up. I'd steer clear of the dress if you're on the shorter side.

My first RTR rental!
This was my first rental and I can officially say I'm hooked on RTR! This dress is so beautiful and very flattering. The color is so bright and perfect. Like others mentioned, the straps didn't stay up very well and I felt like I was constantly pulling them up. Not a huge deal but a little annoying. I didn't have issues with the lining peeking out like some mentioned. I will say that it was a little tricky to move around in this dress so make sure you don't need to do much bending or getting in/out of vehicles and stuff like that.

This was a little tight in the waist, but that's normal for me. Like other reviews mentioned, the straps did keep slipping, but fashion tape would have fixed that (I forgot to bring some). The color was very bright - perfect for a spring beach wedding.

Pretty color but this dress has definitely seen better days
RTR sent this to me at the last minute as my other dresses I selected did not work. This dress fit true to size and was a very pretty color. The top, however was a little loose compared to the bottom. I am pear shaped so I have this problem a lot. If the top could have been a six and the bottom an eight, it would have been perfect. The sleeves are very worn and there was no edging like seen in a lot of the pictures.

Perfect Dress
The color looks more red than watermelon. I wore this to a beach wedding and received many compliments. The 4 fit perfect but the straps kept falling over/were a little long or stretched (5"4,125lbs,34dd). The original dress sent had damage to the underwire but RTR overnighted me a new one and there was no problem.
