Great color! The lace is not as pretty in person. I should have ordered a 6 because when I tied the back there was some puckering of fabric below it.

Perfect Wedding Dress

Wish I had a better picture to show off the dress, until then - this will have to do. I'm 5'8" and the dress hit right at the calves. Wore 3.5 black heels that tied at the ankle and never felt like it cut off my legs. You'll need help as far as the ties in the back, but you can control exactly how the dress hits you which is perfect for any rental. I'd absolutely wear this dress again! Happy renting!

Make sure to aim for it to fit the torso not the hips. The straps on the back let's you adjust how tight the top gets and then the hips flare out. The fit was perfect on me and I got compliments all day.

Beautiful fit, bad lining

I was so excited when I saw this dress was on RTR. I am 5'9'' so finding a dress that isn't too short is always a win. I rented this knowing no reviews were shared because it was brand new. However please know the lining is beyond short and I'm sure other reviews will say this. So short it is to the point I think it is a huge flaw to the designer. The 6 fit me like a glove but I had to wear the 8 because the lining barely covered my butt. I couldn't bend over at risk you would see my butt too. While this dress is gorgeous if you are tall the lining is beyond short and ultimately why I give it 3 vs 5 stars.

Comfortable and beautiful!

I wore this for my cousin's Sonoma wedding and LOVED it! Got compliments the whole night and felt beautiful in it. Just slip it on and you're ready to go without needing a lot of jewelry or extras. Hope to wear it again!

Beautiful blue

Loved this dress. Received many compliments. Would rent again. Note for women with larger chests; you can't wear a traditional bra, so straps may dig in on shoulders in order to support your chest. Not too noticeable, but slightly uncomfortable by the end of the night.

It was a pretty dress and the back was fun but I thought the neck was a bit to high and overall the dress was just -okay.

Perfect for my brother in law's grad school graduation in San Diego

The cobalt blue lace was everything!! I got so many compliments on my dress & the lace up back was so pretty! The midi length was absolutely serene & the lining length being shorter made it stand out that much more. Would be a perfect dress for a spring or summer wedding as a guest! Covers up enough but sexy too. Wish I had somewhere to wear this again.

Perfect dress for a summer wedding

I rented this dress for a May wedding. One of the size options had clearly been worn before, as the lining of it was misshapen and caused the dress to bubble out in strange places. Luckily the other size fit me better.

Dress was beautiful.. Only bad side underneath skirt comes with some sort of band around it which had a funny shape. Other than that it was great!

Perfect Wedding Guest Dress!

This dress fit great and was the perfect length for a summer wedding. I received tons of compliments and would recommend it to anyone! The back is low cut and open so a special type of bra is required to wear the dress.

Color + back

Great dress! Loved the color and open back. Lace up and tie back made the dress a little adjustable which was nice. Definitely on the longer midi side, I'm 5'3" and it hit mid-calf. Style was perfect for a cocktail-attire wedding!

This dress is AMAZING! So sexy, midi length, and adjustable waist. Perfect if you want to show off your back. No bra needed, as there is boning in the dress.

This dress was so flattering m! I have a large ribcage and booty, and this accentuated my assets and hid my flaws. It runs a little small. Size up.

Perfect!

Initially ordered the cherry red version, but it was out of stock. Dress was gorgeous, and fit perfectly. I have a larger chest and I didn't have any issues, didn't need a bra. Slightly difficult to tie the back by myself. Would wear anytime!

Flattering and perfect fit

I loved this dress! This was my first RTR and I was a little nervous about wearing a dress without trying it on first, but it was perfect. A little bit long for my 5'4, but still really flattering! The plastic strip in the lining was a little uncomfortable. Still, perfect for the hot June outdoor wedding.

Perfect dress for wedding in garden

This dress was great! Fit great- ties in the back so I imagine would be easy to adjust for many different shapes/sizes. Midi length made it feel classy and elegant. It's backless, but has good structure and coverage in the front, so felt fine not wearing a bra. I received tons of compliments, would definitely recommend renting it.

Barn wedding

Great dress, beautiful color. Comfortable for all night dancing. Don't pull the straps too tight or it will get uncomfortable. Can't wear a normal bra, but there isnt a risk of anything escaping. Would definitely wear again.

Loved the dress- very "worn"

I loved this dress- perfect for a summer wedding! With that said, I would have worn the 4 but was forced to wear the 6 because the 4 was very "worn" and in poor shape. The inner skirt did not lay flat, and therefore was not wearable. It was crinkled, and uneven. I got so many compliments on this dress and it's very comfortable! Not much difference in the 4 or 6.

Great for summer wedding!

Awesome dress! The royal blue color is really beautiful. Very comfortable with a nice open back. It fits true to size and you can adjust the strings on the back. Runs about mid calf (I'm 5'7"). The only complain is the under dress has a plastic type band around the bottom that bubbles in weird directions and no amount of steam would change that. But over all great dress for a summer wedding.

Compliment City

I got a 4 and a 2, and I almost thought about changing it to a 4 and 6 but I'm so glad I didn't. I ended up wearing the 2 and it fit perfectly. There were about 150 people at this wedding and I'm sure about 80 of them complimented this dress. The back is awesome and you can use the draw strings to make it tighter which helps. The only thing I didn't like was that you couldn't tell it was a shorter "dress" underneath like in the picture. It was basically a blue maxi dress on me since I'm so short (5'4) but I loved it anyway.

I wish I could buy this dress. The color and cut of it is so flattering. I loved the back of the dress. It was modest yet still a little sexy. Perfect combo and dress for a wedding!

Stunning color and loved the back!

I felt so sexy in this dress even though it was pretty modest in the front... the open back was amazing! I received several compliments at the wedding I attended. My only complaint is that even the size 0 was a bit too long on me (I'm 5'4") so it came to almost my ankles which is sort of an awkward length but even still I would rent this again. Loved it!

This dress was beautiful and I received many compliments on it! I am pretty short and I was worried about where it would fall on me but I loved the longer layer of lace. The back made it feel very sexy with out being revealing.

Gorgeous blue lace dress, perfect for summer wedding

Dress is gorgeous color, adjustable back made for a flattering fit. Only problem was the slip-like material that was under the lace part of the dress came very wrinkled and needed to be steamed to lay nicely. It worked out but was inconvenient because I was traveling. Also, the corset part seemed to be coming undone a bit at the bottom and I was stabbed a bit when I sat down.

Beautiful, unique, and classy! The color is bright and bold. Perfect for a summer wedding!

This was my first time using RTR and I have to say I'm so happy with it! Only the size 0 and 4 were available for my event, and I usually wear a 2 or a 4 so I was a little nervous about the fit. The other reviews were helpful as I also found it ran a little large and only tried on the 0 and it fit perfectly. The material doesn't have any give to it, and the tightest part is in the stomach. I also found that the bust area was a little large for the size 0, but that was easily adjusted by the ties in the back. The back and the beautiful lace detail is what sold me on this dress! It's modest enough to wear to a formal event but those details give it a more sexy feel. This is the perfect look for a more formal summer wedding. I'll definitely be using RTR for my events in the future!

Perfect dress for a night out!

The color of this dress was beautiful! The lace was a nice and heavy quality. My favorite part was the strappy back that you could adjust to fit as tight as you like. The only thing I wasn't a fan of was a woven piecing along the inside lining that bubbled slightly and did not lay flat.

Endless compliments!

This dress was absolutely beautiful and fit me flawlessly thanks to the ability to custom tailor the top with the drawstrings in the back. It did dig into my neck a little at the top, but the minor irritation was worth it for how great I felt in the dress. Length is perfect for events where you don't want to risk a dress being too short.

Beautiful dress

I wore this dress to a wedding and got tons of compliments. The 6 fit great. I wore one of those stick on, strapless/backless bras and it worked out well. Pros were that it was elegant and the back was a sexy touch. The only con of the dress was that the straps on the shoulder dig in because it's such a thin piece holding up the dress but it was still worth that small discomfort to look and feel beautiful.

So many compliments!

This dress really is so beautiful. I wore it to a wedding and the reception was outside. The open back on the dress really helped me stay cool. My 2 year old was the flower girl so I needed something long enough that I could run after her all night, but I still wanted to look cute and this was perfect! The under layer of the dress does lay weird and has a plastic type hem that didn't like to lie down flat. I fixed this by turning it under, ironing it, and pinning it with clothes pins as I went. I let it stay like that overnight and in the morning before I put it on, took the clothespins off and it was perfect.

I'm 5'6 and a 36c chest and it fit well. The back is adjustable and could probably fit a couple sizes. Received many compliments and it is a beautiful cobalt blue. Loved it!

This dress makes a statement

This dress was fun and prefect for a summer wedding! The color pops and looks great in person and in Pictures! It's very comfortable and true to its size. I'm usually in between sizes 4 and 6, but because of the string tie in the back of the dress, it's loose and easy to slip into. The tie also allows you to make the dress as tight or as loose as you need it, to make it comfortable and fit to your body shape/type. I would absolutely rent this dress again!
