I got the opportunity to rent this dress when one of my other rented dresses was suddenly unavailable. RTR allowed me to rent any other dress - regardless of price. KUDOS to this policy. Unfortunately, I only got one size, so I had to pick right... I am 5'4, 135 pounds, 24% body fat, 29 waist - aka a normal, healthy weight, but NOT petite. I normally go with an 8, but all the reviews suggested to go a size down, so I went with a 6. Big mistake - my ribcage was too big! Can't really suck in a ribcage. This dress is meant for petite women with a smaller chest. I am a B34 and it would have been perfect had it fit. Not to say larger built women can't wear it, but you'll want to order your normal size + a size up. If you've got a little stomach pooch, this dress will hide it since it's drapy and not huggy. That being said, you will not regret renting this dress. It is BEAUTIFUL and classy and I was dying that I couldn't wear it. Worth every penny.

This dress is gorgeous! The color is very rich, the fabric is perfectly light and flowy, and the fit is very flattering. I agree with the other reviewer - it is very tight in the ribcage. The smaller size fit everywhere else but was too tight on my upper back and I couldn't get it zipped all the way. Therefore, order a size up if you have a larger rib cage. Otherwise a great dress that I will definitely rent again! It is perfect for anything black tie and can also be dressed down for a more casual occasion.

Lucky I was able to rent 2 sizes, I had to wear the larger size. I loved this dress. it is very forgiving and I had so many compliments. I am a 32(small)B and my boobs kept trying to pop out because the top is so small. Also my dress was starting to fray.

I fell in love with this dress when I saw it online and felt so lucky that my size was the only size left available for the date I needed it. After reading reviews, I ordered the 6L, a size up from my usual, and it was perfect. I was especially happy that even though I have a very small chest it stayed up and I actually somewhat filled it out. I got so many compliments throughout the night on the color and the quality. My only complaints were that the back of the dress would sometimes sag a little and the bustier would show. Double stick tape helped a little. Also, the dress snags really easily as the fabric is very fragile. Other than that, I felt like a queen the entire night and would definitely recommend this dress.

Absolutely lovely for a black-tie wedding

Size worn: 2L
Overall fit: Small
Rented for: Wedding
I wore the 2L, which worked well for me at 5'7 with 3.5" heels. I'm tiny up top, and it fit me perfectly, with a bit of boob tape to hold it in place. The color of the dress was stunning and the material flowed beautifully. The one issue I had with it was that the boning was poking through the corset lining in several spots, which ended up scratching me throughout the night. If I had had time to stitch the boning back in, though, I wouldn't have had any complaints.

Very bump friendly

Size worn: 8R
Overall fit: True to Size
Rented for: Wedding
I wore this dress to a wedding while I was 6 months pregnant. It was very pretty and comfortable. At the time my chest was very large, and I chose to wear the bigger size to accomodate. Would wear this dress again pregnant or not
