One of a kind dress
This is a super comfortable dress but runs a little large in the torso (though I don't have much in the way of cup size!). The fabric is beautiful and soft. I have never been able to wear a strapless dress that would stay up and still be comfortable! Only down side was that I tripped over it all night even in 4" heels, so maybe not a great choice if you are 5'4 or under. Maybe platform heels? Tall girls, rent this beauty!

Summer wedding
LOVED this dress! It was very comfortable and I received compliments on the dress all night long. Perfect for a summer evening wedding. I'm 5'5 and I wore 2 inch heels, the dress was still a little long.

Pretty print
It was flowey and if I was very skinny, I coulda pulled it off. It just made me look bulkier in all the wrong places. The bodice fit beautifully, so maybe if you're trying to hide your belly, this could do the trick

Unique dress but runs large
I thought this was lovely, though I normally wear an 8 and the size 6 regular was still one size too big. I'm 5'7" and the regular size length with 3.5" heels was perfect. It looked great in photos, but in person, it really highlights the shoulders (like all strapless dresses,) so just make sure you're cool with that. Generally, it was fun to wear and flowey, though mine was a bit ripped on the bottom (so don't get a size long unless you are really tall!) I'd probably rent it again in a pinch.

Stunning dress with vibrant colors
This dress was worth every penny. The material is high quality and it flows beautifully. Pictures online don't do the color justice, especially the pink. This dress is extremely long. I'm 5'10" and wore 1" heels and the regular still touched the ground! I received compliments the entire night at the wedding I attended. One of a kind dress, you won't be disappointed!

I felt beautiful!
I absolutely loved this dress! I ended up wearing the larger size bc the 6 was just a little too snug on my chest area. Unfortunately the 8 chest area was a little big but not enough where I was constantly pulling up my dress. Overall, I would totally rent again! Oh & you must wear heels! Even with mine it was still long but I didn't mind it.

The dress was beautiful! The top was tight so that my DD's wont not fall out!
#Karl&Angelawedding Beautiful outdoor wedding and I felt beautiful in this dress. I only wear dresses once so ill look forward to my next rental. Pros length was perfect (14R) im 6'1". The cons the bodice was tight so your secure up top but after a few hours the boning in the bodice becomes uncomfortable and starts to poke you! Im a 36DD and my girlfriend had to zip me up and hook me first. This was too dainty for my husband's big hands lolol Very nice rental!

Beautiful color and so comfortable!
I'm a ten and wore a ten. It fit great! Zipper is tricking but my jiggled it and it was totally fine. Very Comfortable and I got a ton of complements all night. I am very tall and it was the perfect length. I wore flats but could have worn heels! One of my favorite rentals.

The dress was even more beautiful in person, but the wires in the bodice are coming loose and makes for some uncomfortable spots. Overall, I would wear it again!

It's a gorgeous dress but size down!!
I rented this dress as a backup for another for a wedding. Thank goodness my first option ended up looking amazing, because I wouldn't have been able to wear this dress as it was WAY too large. I'm 5'11", about 160lbs, 36D and usually a 10...the other dress I ordered fit perfectly and this one was falling off, which isn't usually the case w/36D...otherwise, it is a really well-made gorgeous flowing dress and the colors are great! Size down and I'm sure it will look awesome!

Gorgeous Dress for Outdoor Wedding
I loved this dress! It was perfect for an outdoor summer wedding. I kept getting compliments all day and evening! It definitely runs small in the bust and runs a bit long. I'm a 34DD, 5'5", and usually a size 10. I NEVER go bra-less, but this was so tight that I had no choice. (Eep!) That being said, this was the first dress I've ever worn that you couldn't tell there was no bra (thanks to the boning, fabric, and cut) and I really didn't find myself worried about it slipping down (a chronic issue for me in anything strapless). The dress I received also had two hooks at the top of the zipper which was less than helpful in zipping up the tight top - but once I was in it seemed to be okay that there was no hook and eye to use as a backup closure. It would have been a nice piece of mind for the slippage factor though! The 10R fit okay in the waist but was a bit long - although I did opt for flats. I was fine moving around comfortably without tripping and enjoyed the flowing feel of the longer dress! The fabric is light enough for a hot day in the sun, but it's also not too sheer or flimsy - it feels very luxurious and substantial while remaining light and flowy. Overall, I hated having to return this dress. Even though I panicked at first about how tight the top was, it ended up working out. It'll be hard to rent a different dress after this one!

Hit of the night!
Thankfully I wore this to wedding between two men because if there were a bride, this dress would have totally upstaged them. That is seriously how gorgeous it is. I received no less than 30 compliments from strangers. It's flowy, vibrantly-colored, easy to dance in... literal perfection.

This dress is beautiful, I received compliments all night! I'm 5'3" so it was a bit long even with huge pump heels on but still it looked amazing while dancing and twirling!

Great dress! Got a million complements.
I would have loved the 6L but 6R was available and 4L. The 4 worked with a pair of spankx. The 6R was great fit but too short. I'm 5-11. Loved how I felt and looked. Got a million complements.

Summer wedding
I loved the material. It's super light weight and very well made. The reviews were not lying about the length. It's a great dress but I suggest at least 3 inch heels and being a minimum of 5'5"-5'6" if you're renting it. I got a ton of compliments on the color and fit. It was a great rental!

Beautiful colors!!
This dress is well constructed. It stayed up nicely, no bra needed, although I wore one bc I am small busted. I actually have pretty big ribs so the boning on the inside was poking me all night. I regret not getting the 8P as a back up. I am a solid 6-8 and short, and the 6P was a nice length, but it was very tight on my torso. However, I got compliments all night long so I just tried to ignore it! The colors are just beautiful and people gushed over it. I loved wearing this dress!!!

Enjoyed this dress a lot!
This dress is beautiful and I got many compliments. I'm really glad I picked it; even though I am usually not a fan of strapless dresses the sweetheart neckline was very flattering. In general the fit was true to size; I am usually a 2/4 and ended up wearing a 4, which was just a smidge too big but stayed up fine (with a nubra) so I wasn't worried about it. I would definitely recommend a nubra of you are smaller chested, but I could have gotten away with no bra as well. The dress was also very long (even the regular length), so be prepared to wear 3" heels or tie it up if you don't want to trip! The length wasn't bothersome to me I just had to be extra careful I didn't stop on the dress. Overall a great dress and I'm glad I went outside my comfort zone and rented it!

Gorgeous dress for outdoor formal wedding
Fit beautifully, was a little long for my 5'9 daughter even with 3" heels. She did get her heels caught in the bottom of the dress but otherwise she loved it and wanted to keep it!

The dress was a little longer than I liked and I wore heels with the dress. The dress was very comfortable and I received many compliments. I wish I could have kept the dress, very hard to part with.

One of my favorites ever!
This was a backup dress after the one I ordered couldn't be shipped at the last minute. Only size 14 was available, so I took it and assumed it would be too big (I am normally a 10) - but it actually fit! It was super long (wondering whether I actually got a regular instead of petite?), so I had to hold it up as I walked. But, it was a gorgeous dress that stood out from every other dress at the wedding. It was one of my favorite dresses yet, and perfect for a rental since it is such a memorable dress!

Show stopper and super comfortable!
Loved this dress and knew I had to get it for a formal wedding I was attending over Labor Day Weekend in Texas! I got a 6R and 4L - the 4L fit me like a glove! I'm 5'7" (and wore flats) and the R was just a little too short and the L was a tiny too long - but I went with the little long and made sure not to step on my dress. I received compliments all night (which happens with every RTR I get) and felt gorgeous in it and it was super easy (and fun) to dance in!

Pretty dress but too large in the bust
The dress was beautiful but too large for me in the bust (size 6, 34C) even with a substantial strapless bra, so I didn't end up wearing it. A size 4 probably would have fit fine.

Stunning wedding on a perfect day. Beautiful atmosphere and a great dress helped!
The fit is an entire size too small. I normally wear a 10 but couldn't zip that one at all. I wore very high wedges so the long was perfect, so I recommend that if you wear heels, that you get a long, however I am 5'8" on my own so that may just be me. The dress is VERY well constructed and sturdy, and held up very well, it has the silicone edges to help hold it up, and has a very sturdy and boned bodice with molded cups. Overall I loved it, and wish I could buy it!

Beautiful Watercolors in a Dress :)
This dress is beautiful! I wish I could keep it :) The Good:I received tons of compliments. You will definitely stand out in the crowd. You don't have to wear a bra! The Bad: Runs Small and you have to wear super high heals even if you order regular length.

I received tons of compliments all night. It's a stunning dress and I was so excited to wear it!
The overlay on the dress is about 3 inches longer than the slip. I was wearing 4 inch heals and the dress was still dragging on the ground. I spent most of the night terrified that I was going to trip and rip it as the fabric is very delicate. Huge pro was that I was able to go bra-less and had no issues with it slipping or falling down. A con was I wear a 12 in almost everything and that was significantly too small.

Would have been perfect
I rented this dress for an outdoor wedding and it would have been absolutely perfect. It was light weight and flowy and the colors are even better in person. Unfortunately they only had one size available when I rented. I took a chance but it didn't work out. I would definitely rent it again in a different size.

I wore this dress to the Daytime Emmys and received a lot of compliments on this colorful dress!
The fit of the 6R was perfect for my current weight (140) but WAY too long for my height (5'2). I even wore 6" platform heels and was still struggling not to trip! If you are ok with carrying the skirt wherever to walk, it's a beautiful dress that I feel was worth a little extra work.

Beautiful colors and movement
I LOVED this dress! It is so comfortable and flattering, and I received more compliments on this than any other rental! It flows beautifully when you walk or dance! I would have liked to try the 0 because it was a bit large in the top (I am smaller on top than bottom). It was definitely not too big to be an issue, but I would size down for backup!

Super Long Dress
I rented a long length because there was any reviews yet and there were no short lengths, so I assumed the designer ran shorter. I wore my tallest heels and the dress was still hard to walk in. I got sooo many compliments though. People said it looked like I was floating the way the dress moved. I wore it to a gala/fundraiser and the photographer seemed to be following me around (100% because of the dress). Would be perfect to wear to a gallery event or art museum gala... but definitely get the regular length!
