The dress looked stunning. I felt amazing the dress and received so many compliments!

I'm normally a six or sometimes a four, I ordered a six and an 8 since most said the dress ran small. The six fit me like a glove! I've recently lost a lot of weight so I like showing off my figure, but if you are not into things being super tight you should probably size up. The sleeves were a little tight, if you have big muscles or larger arms it may not fit well. Fit me perfect though and I absolutely loved it!!

Very chic!

This dress got never-ending compliments all evening. When I rented this, no reviews had been written, so I was a little unsure of what size to get. I ended up selecting a 4 (my size) and 6. I tried the 4 on, and there was not a chance for it to fit. Luckily, the 6 was perfect!! The wedding was in mid-September and it was outside. We had a gorgeous evening, but I was thankful for the 3/4 faux sleeves. The pink lining does not have its own straps, so a strapless bra is necessary.

Is it blush, gold, or nude? Can't quite tell from the photo.

This dress is light pink a rose deeper than blush. But it photographs white. I just rented it.

SMOKIN' HOT for Curvy Girls! TONS of compliments! Perfect dress for Yanni!

I wore this dress to a Yanni concert and it was perfect! So funny how it doesn't look like much on the hangar, but trust me, this dress was AWESOME! I'm a curvy girl, and this dress did nothing but compliment my curves. It looked good on, and it was very comfortable. The sleeves do feel a little bit snug at first, but they don't pull or feel tight once the dress is on. It is so cute! It fits like a glove, hugs all your curves perfectly, and is just the right length - not too short or too long. I teamed it up with a pair of silver bling heel sandals, and a simple evening bag. Just be sure to wear a STRAPLESS bra - this is not the kind of dress you want to see bra straps with! I got tons of compliments on my cute little dress all night, and since we had front row seats at the concert people treated me like a celebrity! It was absolutely fabulous - so glad I rented it!

Bombshell

I rented this as an option for my engagement photos. I didn't end up wearing it - mostly, because it wasn't the look I was going for. I wanted more classic and elegant and I found this dress to be more sexy, bombshell. For one, it was a little on the short side and it shows EVERYTHING (great if you want to flaunt your curves). For my comfort level, I like a fabric that has more structure. The sleeves were a bit itchy and the color was too blushy - didn't do much for my skin tone. Again, I do think this is a fabulous dress - just not the look I was going for.

Pretty, shiny, but tight

Pretty color-- darker pink than it appears in photo-- and eye-catching shiny lace detail. But the fabric is VERY itchy and the dress was too small even in the larger of 2 sizes I tried (and I'm petite).

Lovely lace

This is a beautiful dress. The pink is a lot darker in person than in the photo. You should know that this dress runs very very small and it is a lot shorter than I expected. I recommend starting with a size up and 2 sizes up for your back up. The 10 looked very sexy on and hugged my curves, but I think I would have been more comfortable in the 12. The only reason I gave this 3 stars is because after a while the lace on direct skin was a little itchy. Beautiful dress, gorgeous detail and I will rent again.

Beautiful dress, but didn't work out for me

The dress is beautiful, but it is definitely more of blush/light pink color than it looks on the site. I still loved the look though! However, the reason I did not wear the dress and had to return it was that the lace was way too tight and I couldn't squeeze my arms in to it. I am a size 4-6 (I did get a size 6 and backup in an 8 after reading the reviews about it running small), but my arms are muscular from doing CrossFit so that is something to consider. Also, the lace felt itchy and like it may have been uncomfortable to wear for more than an hour or two. The dress is fitted in the middle (not body conscious though), but definitely fits true to size. Wish it would have worked out for me!

The dress is beautiful. enough said. you won't be disappointed

the size DOES run small. I usually wear a 2 in dresses but for this event, the 4 was perfect. expect a SHORT dress if you're dancing; I had to pull it down several times.

Perfect to ring in 2015!

Best rental yet! Fabric is gorgeous but with little stretch. I'm usually a size 2 but sized up after reading the reviews. Got many compliments all night. I'm pettite so the length was perfect. Size up if you are taller and curvier. This dress is one of those you wish you could keep! Looooved it!

Perfect statement dress for NYE in Miami - exactly what I was looking for

I was worried after reading the other reviews that I should have ordered 2 sizes up as this dress runs small. Once I received my order though, my normal size (although took some work to get on) was exactly the fit I was looking for. The material is a bit itchy but definitely was not unbearable. The dress photographed beautifully - it was perfect for my event!

The dress was pretty and it was a good experience with RTR.

The fit was good I am usually a 0 or 2, but used size 2. The only con was that the sleeves were itchy. It was pretty but the scratchiness would not make me want to rent this again. I am sure my next dress will be incredible.

Easy to rent and easy to send back!

The dress is a darker blush pink and not a pale pink as shown on the model. I'm 5'5 and 104lbs and wear a size 000 in jeans. I could grasp about 1.5 inches of fabric from the side of extra space, I wish it were tighter but the dress still looked amazing on my body. I have small arms and the sleeves fit perfectly. If you workout your arms a lot, this may not fit. I thought this dress had a cutesy elegance with a sexy flare. Loved the look and received lots of compliments but it is SUPER ITCHY!!!

Loved it from the moment I put it on.

This dress was wonderful. I usually wear a 6 (8 if the chest is tight) and I wore a 10 in this dress. I didn't think it was too short but I do like showing off my legs. It was for an outside, cocktail, evening wedding and I thought it was perfect for the occasion. I received many compliments on it, The lace was a tad itchy at first but I soon forgot about it. FYI wear nude spanx/bra/underwear. I had black on at first and in the sunlight you could see the color through the material.

Great if you're 5' 10" and weigh 120Ibs.

RTR was nice enough to send this as a back up when the dress I originally ordered was damaged. Honestly I thought this dress was beautiful, hands down just stunning. But for my body type there was no way it would have worked. The fabric is stiff, the lace offers zero give and will work great for those with thin arms, no hips or butt. They sent a size 6 and 8, neither fit. Again, beautiful dress, just totally wrong for girls with an really athletic build (i.e muscular arms) and/or curves.

Stares and compliments all night in Vegas

I wore this dress during a week long conference in Vegas. We had reservations at a nice restaurant, and I wanted to look classy yet sexy. This dress accomplished just that. It's a very pale pink with a lacy gold overtone, but not too flashy of a gold. Very beautiful! The sleeves can be a bit scratchy but eventually I stopped noticing. I ordered a 6 and 8 and wore the 8, the 6 was too snug in the arms and around the butt. If you are tall or leggy and don't mind a shorter dress (like myself) then this dress will be great for you. I dressed it down with some wedges because I knew there would be lots of walking and standing involved all night. I would rent this again for another vegas trip or spring/summer wedding.

I sparkled all night.

This dress ran small - real small. I'm usually a 10 but had to do the 12 in this style. It was gorgeous on. I'm 5'4" and the dress was a little short but I loved showing a little leg. I received compliments all night. The dress was super comfortable to wear.

The dress looks amazing, but it was a little itchy. :/

I loved the way this dress looked on me. I have a lot of curves and this dress definitely complimented my body. The fabric isn't as thick as I expected but that was OK. The only thing I didn't like about the dress is that the sleeves were itchy. It wasn't so bad that I couldn't wear it, but when I got home I was happy to take it off. Nonetheless, I got MANY compliments that night on my dress. :)

The dress was a hit and Landed me in VIP. Definitely a Success.

I ordered the dress despite the reviews of being to short and itchy sleeves. I don't have any complaints but the sleeves were a bit tight. If you are muscular or have chubbier arms. this dress is not for you. You'll be very uncomfortable. I'm 5'1" and the dress was the perfect length. The color in person is very dark but as you can see it photographs much lighter and brighter. You won't be disappointed.

wearing such a beautiful dress to a beautiful wedding

I received more compliments on this dress than I have on any other dress. Sleeves are a little tight, length was not too short. I'm 5'7 and since I don't usually wear mid thigh dresses, I was worried about dancing in it. No worries needed -The dress was perfect.

Very sparkly, pretty color, but super short and itchy.

This dress wasn't very flattering on me. I had to size up to the 8 (am usually a 4) and it was still too short to wear to a wedding comfortably (I am 5'8). The color was beautiful and I like the idea of the dress, but the lace was too itchy to wear. :(

My cousin's wedding had a romantic theme and this dress fit in perfectly.

I received so many compliments on this dress. It was comfortable and flattering. Having a large bust makes finding dresses to wear difficult, but this dress reduced cleavage. You can wear a normal strapless bra with this dress too.

Very pretty but WAY TOO ITCHY.

I wore this dress for my birthday. I read that the dress could be itchy, but I thought 'eh, I can deal with it." Let me tell you, this dress is SUPER itchy. Fortunately, I wore it in the Fall and for a sit down birthday dinner. Had i ordered it in a warmer month, or for an event where there was dancing, I would be unbelievably uncomfortable. The dress is extremely itchy, and if I was dancing and moving around I honestly would have been miserable. It's pretty, and I recommend this rental for a sit down dinner or photoshoot, but not for any long event such as a wedding.

Compliments all night!

I wore this as a mix-and-match bridesmaid dress at the beginning of October at an outdoor wedding. Got tons of compliments all night. Runs small - definitely glad I ordered a larger backup - and it fit perfectly. The under layer moves a bit and a nude strapless bra was definitely required. Also highly recommend some kind of Spanx-type undergarment as this dress is pretty form-fitting. I would definitely recommend this dress!

Great dress for a wedding! Lots of compliments!

I received a lot of compliments with this dress! It's very classy and sexy. However, my cons are similar to other reviewers: the arms are itchy and it runs small. I tried on a size 2 in the store and it felt too tight in the hips, so I ordered a size 4 with the size 2 as a backup. The size 4 fit better in the hips, but there was a huge space in the shoulders and the back of the dress, so I ended up wearing the size 2. I felt self-conscious while dancing and kept pulling the dress down. So if you're attending a sit down event, I would recommend this dress.

It was a wonderful time and reunion to catch up with friends.

The size ran small which was perfect because it was an 8 and I am definitely not an 8 and have never been. But it fit perfectly, not too big, not too snug. It was a little itchy, but definitely worth renting. I got compliments on it all night and it's such an affordable price! I would definitely rent it again.

Beautiful dress!

This dress fit perfectly! The lace part was a bit itchy but nothing too crazy. I was only able to try on because my event got cancelled the day before, but this is the dress I would have worn. I ordered three and modeled all three to my husband and he loved this as much as I did. Very flattering and gorgeous color. I would reorder this dress for another formal event when I can actually show it off.

So this dress is beautiful and I received many compliments from strangers but there are some issues.

This dress is VERY short, I am a pretty reliable size 4, so got the 4 and backup of the 6. The 4 fit perfectly but was so insanely short there was no way I could wear it out, even for NYE. I put on the 6 and it was a bit longer in length, but still short (I am 5'7). It is also so itchy. I read in other reviews that it was itchy, but thought it would be fine, it was just really annoying until I got too drunk to notice it. That said, I am not sure if I have ever received more compliments- my boyfriend was blown away and at least 6 strangers came up to me to compliment me on the dress and how beautiful I looked in it.

Simple w/a lil sparkle!

I originally bought this dress to wear for my rehearsal dinner coming up, but I had a Mardi Gras themed charity ball to attend that I decided to wear it for. I ordered a larger size than normal after reading other reviews and the 8 fit perfectly. (I'm normally a 4 with an athletic build. I lift heavy weights and swim, so sometimes sleeves make me nervous, but I was good.) The dress was comfortable and flattering. I paired it with gold shoes for added sparkle.

Loved it!! Wore for my bachelorette party!

The fit was great. I had to go up one size, but I have large hips and a big butt. I wore with cowboy boots and hit up the town! So comfortable. Partied all night in it. You quickly get over how itchy the arms are because you look so good in it!

Sexy and flattering.

This dress was great for Valentine's Day. It fits well and is very flattering. I felt sexy. It did feel ride up and feel short at times and I did wear a size up but overall a great date party dress.
