Back up dress

I got this dress as a backup and did not end up wearing it. I did not like how the 4 fit me. There is a "pouch" in the front and it was puffing out. I think a 6 would have fit perfectly and I will try this dress for another event. It is a heavy fabric and would be perfect for a fall wedding.

My favorite RTR dress thus far

This has been one of faves. It fit very well in the right places, the color was vibrant. Fabric quality was great. Even has pockets. Very easy dress to wear to any occasion. Loved wearing this dress

Beautiful yellow!

Wore to an outside Barn wedding loved the colors of this dress. Sizing of this dress was really off bc because I Ordered a size 2 and 4. I ended up wearing the 2 because the 4 was so big I was swimming in it and the 2 was really tight and there's no stretch to the dress so it was a bit uncomfortable. I almost didn't wear it but my husband loved it so I decided to just go with it. I did get many compliments on this dress. The fabric is thicker. You can wear a regular bra or strapless. The pockets in the front were a bit odd so I used double sided fashion tape to keep them from pouching out. That did the trick.

Elegant and appropriate for a Tea Time bridal shower

A little tight, there is no stretch and the top dipped a little deeper than I wanted but it was expected due to my small chest (it fit well though). Very cute and great thick material - it's yellow on a different shade of yellow and not white fyi, in a lovely way. My only issue was that the inside layer kept creeping out from the bottom. Even though I am petite it still came a few inches above the knee. Wore it with nude patent pumps, a nude blazer, mauve handbag and pearl earrings. Tea time was a hit!

Great fit! Fun dress but conservative.

I rented this for Easter brunch, stylish but I felt comfortable in it for a more conservative family event. Material is thick which makes it hang nicely. It has pockets which is nice but I don't think you could put anything in them without it hanging oddly, so I wouldn't plan on that. It is true to size but I would recommend sizing up for a backup if you have a larger chest.

Tons of compliments, but not a great fit

I wore this to a charity gala. Pros: I got so many compliments all night long. The color and pattern are beautiful, the photos really don't do it justice. It's really heavy and structured material and the shape is really slimming and flattering. Cons: This dress runs VERY small. I'm usually between an 8 and a 10. Even the 10 was extremely snug, it was riding up all night. The shoulders/straps were too big/long so it was gapping at the top all night. Also the front pocket is a cute idea, but it never laid flat. It was kind of pouching out all night. The fit just generally left a lot to be desired.

Fun and beautiful dress

The fabric is so special that photos don't do it justice. Such a rich thick deep fabric, really gives it texture and style. My sister called it curtains or drape material. Very fun and easy to jump around it. Can't take too large of steps though bc it keeps your legs together

I wore this as a subtle statement for my sister's graduation party.

This dress was great for an evening grad reception. It was pretty and looked great standing up. However when I sat down it was hard to get comfy with the pencil skirt. Additionally it has one large pocket across the front that would be great to help hid belly or for an early maternity fit, but looked awkward and pouchy on me. Cute dress that photographed well, but had I had an alternate to wear I would have chosen that.

Beautiful color! Lots of complements!

The pocket in the front was a little weird. It was like a pocket in the front of a hoodie sweatshirt. But other than that I felt like the material was great. The fit and color were perfect for a spring wedding.

Very springy and beautiful

I loved this dress and knew I wanted to rent it so I was happy to have an occasion to rent it for. I wore it to an award ceremony at my school. The material is very thick, and reminded me of a couch; however, the pattern is gorgeous. The skirt was a little tight and walking up stairs or sitting was difficult. The pocket in the front was the weirdest thing ever. It was like a muff. It bulged out from time to time but it didn't bother me as much as I expected it to. Overall it was a great dress.

Beautiful material and flattering cut

I rented this dress for a summer wedding in Washington, DC. The material is of high quality and looks expensive, but also has some stretch to it so you can move around. (The element of stretch also allows this dress to accommodate multiple body shapes). I am top-heavy with narrow hips and I found this dress to accommodate my chest without swallowing up my small hips, which I really appreciated! There's some cleavage and some leg, but not too much of either, so it's appropriate for more formal or family oriented occasions. Overall a good rental and a pretty dress! The only reason I'm not go oh five stars is the dress looked like it had seen quite a few rentals and so it wasn't in pristine condition, and the pockets on the dress are sort of random and weird IMO.

Very cute dress for the Kentucky derby, but...

While this dress was pretty darn cute, there was something just a little off about the fit. It wasn't great for somebody as busty as myself. There is no give to the fabric so it kind of just squishes you in. I would've liked to size up, but then it got really loose in the waist and just look sloppy. It was also cut a little funny in the tush area. I think it would work very well on an athletic build. It could be very cute on somebody who's not very curvy. The color is slightly different in person than it is in the pictures. The back color is more yellow than it appears in the photo it is not a true white background at all. I do have to say that I LOVED the pocket!! I was able to slip my iPhone in there and it was totally invisible!

I was not able to wear this dress, RTR once again treated me right! I received a full credit!

This dress runs very small. If you have even one curve you should really consider opting for another dress. My mother tried on the dress-she is a size smaller than me- and it still would come over her hips. Beautiful dress just not accommodating to curves.

Fabulous fabric and super fun shade of yellow!

I did end up wearing and getting tons of compliments on this dress, but it is definitely not built for a curvy, full busted body. The fabric is totally unforgiving so I definitely recommend a size up for back up. It was so snug and fitted I literally couldn't bend over, but I managed just fine. The fabric is gorgeous and once it's on it is worth it. I ask had to figure out how to pose for photos since the odd almost pocket like fabric panel in front gapes a bit. Overall worth it- but glad I ordered a bigger size!!

Loved the fit of the dress and fabric. It was perfect for a outdoor country themed winery wedding.

It had a great vibrant color that was even better in person. The fit is slightly big I'm usually a size 6 but went with the size 4 because the 6 was a bit baggy on the top. I loved having the pocket in the front. My kangaroo pouch in the front lol

Very tight - fabric is thick and had no give.

I rented this dress for a family wedding but ended up exchanging it for a different dress in part because it didn't fit well and also because the address was defective. The liner slip on the dress was not tech down along the hem like it should've been so it's stuck out about a half inch across the whole front of the dress. The fabric is thick and reminded me of something you might use to upholster a couch. That being said, it is a pretty dress and probably would look great on somebody who is not curvy. I have a lot of curves and bigger hips and I could hardly sit down in the dress...let alone attempt to dance!!

Fun color and great front pocket

The 4 was huge on me. The 2 fit well but was tight around the legs and bust. Probably best for non-athletic legged ladies with smaller busts. It was a beautiful color and the fabric was thick and a bit stretchy.

Beautifully made with a few quirks!

I loved this color! It was he most beautiful thick fabric without being bulky. The only con is the lining kept peeking out of the bottom but s safety pin inside the through and through pocket would've held it up! It's a bit snug when sitting but just gotta work with it!

The dress was tight in some areas and lose in others. The front pockets bunched up weird and made my waist look bigger.

Huge difference between the 4 and 2. The 2 was super tight and the 4 was a little loose. I like the little pouch; it was nice to hold my phone in!

Perfect for a summer wedding!

I loved this dress for the Florida wedding that I wore it to. It fit perfectly and I received compliments on the pattern, the fit, and the color all night. The only downfall is that the material doesn't allow for much movement - so if you plan to dance all night and get down, this might not be the dress for you!

This dress fit well, it highlighted my curves. The pockets aren't technically pockets, it's more of a flap to put your hands in. They connect in the middle. Overall great dress!

Classy and comfortable

The fit was a little tight around the hips and the pocket over the stomach was a surprise to me, but wasn't too bad. I received so many compliments on this dress and loved it. The yellow is not as bright as in the pictures, which was good because I wore this in wintertime and didn't want something too summery.

Springy Yellow!

I am normally between a 4 and a 6 and this size 6 was a little big. I would recommend sizing down to get that slimming sheath effect. pretty yellow color and textured jacquard fabric. I would rent again!!

Not at all flattering

I ordered this for a wedding, I am normally a 10 but ordered a 10 and a 12. The 10 was extremely unflattering, was tight in the wrong places and loose in the wrong places. I tried the 12 and had the same issues, and I tried every possible solution to make the dress look better (hair up, down, putting a blazer over it) and nothing worked. Luckily RTR was very flexible and accommodating in offering me a credit since I returned the dress unworn.

Great look!

This dress was a replacement for a damaged dress and I was happily surprised. The 2 was a bit baggy in the stomach so I wore the 0 even though it was tighter in the hips. The fabric is a nice thick material with nice detailing. The front pocket was fun too. Wore with nude heels and regular underwear & bra.

Beautifully elegant dress

This dress runs big so I had to ask for a replacement size. I got the 4 at 1st thinking as a structured dress with no stretch I should size up, but that was not the case. The 2 fit perfectly. The pattern on the dress is so elegant and thick sort of reminds me of like couch or curtain fabric. Nice color too, you'll stand out. The zipper at the back has a cool fabric strip hanging from it to zip and unzip easier. The pockets are so cool!!!! The only negative I can say about this dress is that when you sit down, the pockets stick out a little bit like a pouch so you have to be aware to not look fat while sitting.

I received tons of compliments on this dress!

I usually wear a 4, and read other reviews that the dress runs a tad large. I was very happy that I had ordered a 2 and 4. The 4 was a little large...mostly, it was a bit too long (I am 5'4"). The 2 was very fitted but flattering, and the odd pouch on the front stuck out a bit, so I taped the sides down with double sided fabric tape, and it looked fine. Honestly, if I owned this dress (which I wish I did!) I would have purchased a 4 and had it taken up a bit for a snug but slightly more comfortable fit. Overall, I was very pleased and would absolutely rent the dress all over again! It was perfect for the event (late afternoon Greek wedding)!

I really liked the color and material. I received lots of compliments.

I ended up wearing a smaller size than normal - the 2 over the 4. It wasn't great for dancing because the material doesn't have any stretch it in but it wasn't impossible either. It did come with a seam coming apart in the bust but luckily I had a mother on hand to sew it up and it was a quick fix.

Way to big and fit poorley

The fabric is beautiful and I was really excited about getting it. But like the others reviews said it was very large in the waist which looked really bad due to the pockets. Also not good for broad shoulders as the wide straps made me look even broader. Go down a size for sure.

Boyfriend loved the dress

I'm a usually size 10. I have a 36DD bra size. I ordered both a size 10 and an 8 based on the fit recommendations. I was able to easily fit in a size 8. I could have worn the size 10, but it had noticeable gaps at the underarms and chest, I would have needed fashion tape to wear the 10. Essentially the 10 was too big. This dress was perfect for a summer date night. I'd recommend for a day wedding too. Best featurea are that it has pockets and you can wear with a normal bra! This is my 7th or 8th rental from RTR and the experience keeps getting better. This time my dress arrived a day early and they've even changed their shipping bags to be more economical and last wasteful.

It was a beautiful wedding and the dress was very comfortable.

Body hugging, but in a classy way that is appropriate for a nice wedding.
