Extremely flattering
I rented this dress for a gala for work. I'm 5'4, at the time about 170lbs, 34DD. It was surprisingly supportive for a strapless dress. Very comfortable. I got a ton of compliments on the colors and the fit. Would highly recommend!

Amazing Dress!
I wore this for a black tie optional wedding. It was a little long as I had to go with the 2R - petite was sold out (I am 5'3). The bodice and overall fit was great and the colors photograph well. I got multiple compliments. It was very comfortable and lightweight. Perfect for a summer wedding.

Beautiful colors - got lots of compliments!
The dress was very long so make sure you wear high heels. I tripped on it quite a bit in 2-3 inch heels.

loved it. beautiful statement.
Great fit. A little long- I'm 5'5", so i had to wear pretty high heels. The flow of the dress is amazing. It was clean and in great condition when I received it.

The dress looked and felt and amazing! I would definitely recommend!
A lot of other reviews said that the length was very long so I went with a regular instead of the long. The regular was a perfect length with flats, however if you are wearing heels I would suggest the long. GREAT dress!

Beautiful dress, gorgeous!
I wore this beauty for my bridal shower, and WOW, I love it. My backup size wasn't available, so they sent a great backup style, that I also loved and was more expensive, but this one still won out, I just loved the bright colors. The bodice was a bit tight, but not horrible - I could have gone braless and it probably would have been fine, but I wasn't that daring since everyone was watching him open gifts and bend over. The cut is great for a pear/hourglass. I would wear this dress 1000x over.

Moves beautifully, extremely flattering.
I'm 5'1" and 120 lbs with a full bust. The dress was perfect length with 3 inch heels (petite) and had enough structure to hold everything in without wearing a bra. The material is light, perfect for hot weather, and flows when you walk so it looks like you're gliding across the floor. absolutely beautiful. You will get compliments all night. Big plus: you can eat/drink as much as you want.

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!

STUNNING Dress!
This dress is even more gorgeous in person. I wish RTR had sent me the size 14 I ordered, instead of a size 4 so I could have actually tried it on. I was so upset that I wasn't able to wear this dress because it is literally the most gorgeous dress I've ever rented from RTR -- the pictures online don't do it justice!

In a world of solid color dresses, be the rainbow!!
I absolutely ADORED wearing this dress. I was working a gala, and needed a dress that would allow me to run around, while still looking glam. This dress was the ticket. It's SO lightweight and comfortable- no tugging to keep it up. I usually wear between a 4 or a 6 in dresses, but a RTR rep encouraged me to size down, and I'm so glad I did. The 2P was great! Only thing- the uneven hem at the bottom, while gorgeous, is pretty long on a short girl like me. However, when you walk, it creates a lovely rippling effect. And nothing a little fashion tape can't help. I can't recommend this dress highly enough- take a chance on multi-colors instead of solids. You won't regret it!

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.

Beautiful dress to dance the night away
I received so many compliments on this dress. I'm relatively short so I had to wear higher heels and the dress still dragged a bit on the floor. I have a larger bust and didn't have to worry about pulling the dress up as much as I thought I would. Overall a beautiful dress, I would wear it again!

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.

Flowing, Elegant, Gorgeous Colors
Beautiful, flowing dress. It looked elegant for the gala I attended and was lightweight enough to dance in (while holding up the bottom, because I definitely took off my shoes to dance). It worked well with my skin tone, and I imagine people blessed with more melanin would pop even more in it! Definitely needed a strapless bra to hold it up (34B), and would have opted for higher shoes since it's quite long (I'm 5'7, 125). Solid first experience with RTR!

Great dress, very comfortable, and so many compliments received!
First, let me just say that I got complimented on how beautiful this dress was all night long! Not only did my friends and I love it, but also, people I didn't even know were coming up to me during the wedding and telling me how much they liked it. Wow! I ordered the 8R with a 6R as a backup size, as I am usually between the two sizes. They both fit, but I decided to go with the 8R as it was a bit less snug. I didn't have any problems with the dress staying up, as sometimes happens with strapless, and it was very comfortable. The only problem I had was the length – I’m pretty short, and even with 4 inch heels, I tripped a few times. Otherwise, I have nothing but good things to say about this dress!

Beautiful dress - perfect for a formal early-fall wedding.
This dress was comfortable and very beautiful in person! The only reason I'm giving this 4 stars instead of 5 is because there was a hole in the fabric at the bottom of the dress (about two inches in diameter) and I didn't realize this until right before I was getting ready for my event. Luckily it wasn't too noticeable with the way the fabric fell, but I do wish that it had been inspected more closely so this dress could be taken out of the rental pool. Still, I got a ton of compliments and would definitely rent this one again!

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!

Eye catching maxi, good for a cool, summer evening wedding in the Bay Area
Loved the dress! The bust was a tad tight, but the overall fit is true to size. I ordered this because I just colored my hair with bold green highlights and wanted a dress to balance them out. Sure did the job as I received so many compliments that evening on it, including another RTR customer that ordered the same dress, but found it too long. The dress *does* run long, even in petite length with 3 in heels. I actually received the dress with 2 tears at the bottom, so as said in other reviews, it does get stepped on both by the wearer and other folks. I pointed this out to customer service ASAP and they noted it. I would love to purchase this dress and shorten it for other events!

Wore it to two summer weddings and got tons of compliments!
The dress was very comfortable and airy for two warm summer weddings. The bodice was pinching a bit by the end of each night, but overall it was comfortable and easy to move around in--feels very lightweight and won't show sweat or anything! The regular size was a bit long, even with heels--I had ordered a petite backup size in case but it didn't come. The length was fine overall--again, a bit long but didn't get in the way too much.

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!

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!

Absolutely gorgeous dress. Colors are amazing and material soft and flowy. Unfortunately it was way too tight in the bust area and I was unable to wear...but this would be a dress that I would highly recommend for any special event. Still giving it the highest of ratings!

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!!!

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!

Endless compliments!
This dress was amazing! For me it fit mostly true to size (6R)- it was a little bit snug on top, and I am smaller chested (36B) so it might not work well for someone who is larger chested. The fit was beautiful and it was nice and flowy from the waist of the dress down. I ordered this before I knew I was pregnant, and the waist hit me right above my bump so it still fit perfectly. I received so many compliments from complete strangers on this dress- I didn't want to send it back! A lot of other reviews said the dress was very long- I am 5'8 and I wore it with three inch heels and it was fine, but may want to consider going with a short size if you are shorter than that.

Vibrant Beautiful Colors! Fit perfectly!
I was a little concerned renting a strapless dress because I wasn't sure my body type would be condusive to any one size, but this dress fit like a dream! I am typically an 8 in RTR dresses, but unfortunately, the day before I was supposed to get my dresses, I was contacted by RTR and they let me know that the size 8 would not be coming because it was damaged from a previous rental. I was super bummed because I did not think the 6 would even zip up (I am a little broad in the shoulders). RTR was awesome because they sent me two other dresses worth more then the dress I rented to help. Luckily the size 6 in my original choice fit perfectly! This is my 5th time renting through RTR and I have nothing but good things to say about the company. Keep up the good work!

So many compliments on this dress! The print really stands out.
I'm 5'5' but went with the petite after reading other reviews. Even in 3 inch heels, I had to be careful and my kids were constantly stepping on the bottom of the dress. Other than that, it was perfect. I'm a little busty and sometimes have trouble with structured tops, but no issues there.

STUNNING GOWN!
5'6" 135lbs. 6R fit great! Absolutely stunning gown that I wore to a wedding. I felt like a princess. The colors are very soft and blend well. Received many compliments. I consider purchasing this dress as I loved it and did not want to take it off! Slightly short such that entire shoe shows when walking, but I liked to show off the shoes as well. So far the best dress I've rented from RTR.

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.

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.

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!
