This was a great dress, loved the lace, but it was a little too short for a wedding.

I loved the dress, but thought it was too short to wear to a wedding. From the front it actually looked okay, but the back didn't seem long enough. I couldn't bend over, lift my arms to dance, etc. Other than the length the dress fit fine.

Loved this dress on the website but was nervous about the comments on how short it is. It is a little short, but actually worked really if you just pay attention to lifting your arms up. I got many many compliments on the dress and it would look good with boots as well as the heels I chose to wear. It was very comfortable! You do need a strapless bra as the liner cuts in at the neck, but it was perfectly comfortable. A great party dress!

I really enjoyed wearing this dress. Sexy without being trashy. The zipper and fit was a little strange with some bunching in the low back, and the lace sleeves are tight Otherwise, a classic little shift dress.

This dress fit perfectly and was great for a wedding. It was loose enough through the middle and hips that having a butt a size bigger than my dress size didn't look weird. Would definitely wear it again!

Gorgeous lace!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: True to Size

I ordered a size 8 and size 10 for back up. The color is true to the picture-deep navy. The 8 was the dress I went with-so flattering. I have a smaller bust size (small C) so there was no issue, if I had any larger of a chest it would probably be tight in the armpit seam. I could have gone with a 6, but liked the way the dress skimmed over my torso without being too tight for dancing at a wedding. I am tall as well, so the length was PERFECT. Overall gorgeous lace-gorgeous dress and perfect for a formal affair/wedding.

I needed a dress that would hide my left over baby bump without making me look bigger.

The dress fit great. Since I'm nearly 5'4, I didn't have an issue with the dress being too short. The wedding I went to was in November so I wore nude fishnet tights from Spanx under the dress and it looked great. I also wore red shoes.

I'm a true 6, but felt that this dress didn't exactly go to size (it doesn't run small or large either). I say this because it was really short, but the back of the dress had gaps when I zipped it. I'm pretty muscular, and usually tight dresses aren't always form fitting, but this was a nice one.

This was a great mix of covered up but sexy/stylish for a wedding with a conservative group. I'm short so the length worked great for me. Just wore nude pumps and a baubly bracelet. You don't need to heavily accessorize to make a statement. My husband said "You were the belle of the ball...uh, except the bride of course".

A few pieces of the lace were snagged and the lining tended to stay below the lace if I were to move my arms up, but other than those minor details, the dress fit really well and looked really nice.

I rented the size 0 because everything else that I actually own from Tibi runs big. This dress was very tight, like I couldn't move tight. The length was super short and very innapropriate for a wedding. It was a pretty dress, just be sure to size up.

Classy yet fun!

Size worn: 8
Overall fit: Small

I read the reviews about the dress being too short for a wedding and still decided to try it out because I couldn't resist the details of it. While the dress is definitely short, it is not inappropriate; the sleeves balance it out nicely. I typically wear a 6 and had originally ordered the 4 and 6 . Thank goodness I switched the back up to an 8 after reading to "size up" for your extra size. It falls so nicely that you don't have to worry about sucking in at all :) I wore it with nude pumps to an evening April wedding. Lots of compliments! If you are self conscious about your legs, you might want to pass; but if not - go for it!!

I thought this dress would be a purplish color but it's actually black. It's still a great and comfortable dress, I would recommend it. True to size, if you're taller than 5'6" it might start to get short.

I didn't get to wear this dress to my event b/c it arrived late. RTR was great and refunded plus gave me a discount offer for future rentals. I did try the dress on to see if I was on the mark for wanting to rent this dress. It is a very good quality dress. It fit everywhere however, It was a little tight in the but. The length was just right. Short enough to show off my legs but was still classy,

The perfect dress for a summer wine country wedding! It was short, but the longer sleeves and subdued neckline made up for all the leg. If I could, I would wear this to every wedding. The other reviews say the sleeves were a bit tight and they are. So if you have larger (or muscular) arms, order up. The tight arm situation is the only reason I left out one star.

This dress was pretty boxy so it did me no favors. It has lace paneling on the arms and into the chest area so you need a strapless bra which I refuse to subject my body to.

Runs small, too tight even with a larger size, and too short for a wedding.
