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 really enjoyed this dress- very comfortable, easy to wear, true to size. Great color and long enough for a tall woman (I am 5'9.5!)

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 ended up getting a different dress because this one was too big
I was unable to wear the dress because the bust was very loose and the straps were almost two inches too long

Perfect dress to wear to a spring wedding.
Super comfortable! Love that you don't have to wear a bra with this dress. I'm 5'6, 138lbs, and a size 4 was perfect.

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.

Gorgeous dress!
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.

Dress has a nice color. Fit is comfortable. Unfortunately the dress I received had seen better days, the lace detail shown in the picture was totally not there. Overall, lacked the wow factor, but it's a nice basic dress.

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.

Cute dress for a summer affair.
I loved the color of this dress but unfortunately it was not one of my favorites. As many of the other reviews state, the straps of the dress are long and fit a bit awkwardly. I have broad shoulders and the straps were still too big so the dress fit all wrong In the bust area and was loose here.

This dress was very flattering and I got a ton of compliments. I wore for a more casual wedding. Loves the color, fit, and quality of the dress and would rent this again as well as look for more dresses by this designer.

Birthday Dinner
The dress was pretty and fit well. I didn't give five starts because the lace edges were lifting from their folded seams giving an unfinished look in these areas. I think I'm probably the only one who noticed though. Color was great!

Great wedding dress!
I am typically a 10 but got the 12 just in case. The dress fit a bit snug in the body but the straps were loose and kept sliding off. Aside from that, the color was perfect for a fall wedding!

Absolutely gorgeous
This dress was perfection. I dressed it down with simple flats and a black cardigan for a rehearsal dinner that I found out last minute was more casual than expected. I received many compliments on this. It held in my trouble spots nicely. The straps were a little loose, so we tried to safety pin them, but my hubs couldn't figure it out so I just left it and the cardigan took care of it. I NEVER go without a bra, but was able to with this dress. I seriously wish I owned this. It's love.

Great dress for a cocktail party!
The waist cinches in nicely, a perk for a gal like me who doesn't have a very defined waist line. The fit was good, shoulders were a bit loose but that's typical for me. Length was nice, got called beautiful a few times :)

Great color but a bit high maintenance
This dress was beautiful but definitely had a few drawbacks. First, both of the dresses I received, sizes 10 and 12, had crumpled lace along the sleeve/neck line. Like- majorly, disgustingly, crumpled. Like- if I can't fix this I will look like I pulled this dress out of the dumpster, crumpled. It took some serious ironing and some spray starch to get the lace to lay flat, and after a few hours in the summer heat, the lace started to shrivel back up. Bummer. Also, as many people mentioned, the straps are too long, no matter how you adjust the dress, there will be drooping in the back. I probably wouldn't rent this dress again just bc it took so much work to get it to the point of being wearable, but I don't regret renting it either. It was a beautiful color and fit nice (other than the sleeves).

Pretty dress for wedding
Beautiful dress but ran a little on the big side. Typically I wear 2-4. They only had 4 available but wish they had 2 because the back was kind of big. Also you need a bra that goes very low for the back of the is dress! Which I didn't expect. I dressed it up with a belt which gave the dress more character! Overall still a pretty dress and did get several compliments on it

I wore this dress to a wedding. I liked that it was a little bit longer as I am tall.
This dress was big in the chest. I did not wear a bra with it, but that might have helped. Around the hips was a little snug, but it worked for the wedding.

Great dress for a wedding
I needed a dress for a wedding I was attending 5 weeks after I had a baby. This was perfect. It was structured but not tight through the waist and hips, which had a slimming effect and hid my problem areas. The top was also structured but again, not tight, which is perfect for someone who has a larger chest. The sleeves are definitely loose, which was fine for me because I am tall and have broader than average shoulders. Would not recommend for someone petite or flat chested. In fact I don't think this would have worked as well for me pre pregnancy - I think my upper body would have drowned in it a bit. wouldn't recommend

Good fit, bright color
Didn't end up wearing this because of the lace up top. It doesn't lay as nicely as it looks in the photos and is more visible than in the photos. The fit and color were nice though.
