Made for an hourglass figure
It hugged and flowed with every curve of my body, which is difficult with 39 inch hips and 29 inch waist . The color was stunning for a winery venue! Being 5'4 the dress hit at just the right spot. Absolutely received compliments ! Only complaint, after running my steamer over the lace at the chest area, it would never lay out flat; so I ended up tucking it in which I think ended up better because you could tell the dress had been worn a number of times and the ends were starting to look dull and raggedy. But even then, gorgeous piece !!

Great summer color
Perfect dress for a backyard evening wedding!!! Straps were a little loose and lace needed to be ironed out along neckline. I received so many compliments on the color!!

Classic fit and COLOR for the win!
Great dress for a summer wedding I attended, I received so many compliments! I was specifically looking for a dress I could wear a regular bra with in a color that wasn't the usual black or cobalt blue I tend to wear, this was perfect. I wore a nude bra and you couldn't tell at all. I do agree with the other reviews that the straps would be long if you're not tall/have a large bust. My only complaint was the boning was a little long for my liking but I think that's because size-wise I was between a 10 and 12, I wore the 12. Also I had to press the straps when the dress arrived so the lace would lay flat, I noticed this in some of the other reviewers pictures too. Plus we met Lou Ferrigno coming off the elevator, so fun! First #RTR purchase and I'll definitely rent again!

Great Dress for a Summer Wedding
The dress was a beautiful color and perfect fit, I got a lot of compliments. The stamps were a bit long and the lace on the straps needed ironing. The dress was slightly worn and some of the lace wasn't in perfect condition. Otherwise it was just what I was looking for!

Amazing Bridal Shower Dress
This dress is one of my favorite rents. The color is a fun watermelon pink (looks more red in photos) and the fit is very nice. It has some built in chest support but not enough for larger chests. It was easy to wear a nude bra with it. The straps were a little long, as others have warned, but I used fabric tape to appear it to my bra and that worked perfectly. The fit is not tighter in any specific area but there is no give to the fabric so getting in and out of my SUV was interesting. I would suggest a size up if you plan to be sitting / standing / sitting / standing a lot, it will be more comfortable. I got a ton of compliments at my bridal shower!

Straps were way too long
This is a beautiful dress and color but the straps were way too long on me and fell down. I am 5,1 so maybe this would work better on someone taller and with a longer upper frame.

Loved this dress, but the top was too large..
I loved this dress, but I couldn't wear it for my event. The dress fit like a glove everywhere except the top. The lace straps were very baggy in the back. It felt like they were stretched out from hanging on the hanger for an extended period of time.

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!

Perfect color for a spring/summer garden wedding guest dress!
Other than delivery hiccups and straps that were beading/ripped and too big as others mentioned in their reviews, the watermelon color was beautiful and not too bright. It was the perfect dress for an outdoor wedding and I did receive many compliments. Great length and fit.

Perfect watermelon color for summer!
The color of this dress was gorgeous! The straps however were a little too big so I ended up using a safety pin to make the top of the dress a halter.

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.

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.
