Very comfortable for a wedding
I rented this for a wedding and it was super comfortable and very flattering. I love the sleeves, and the length was perfect. Would rent this one again for sure! I feel like it fit TTS for me, I wear a 6/8 and wore this in an 8.

The color of the dress and the shape of the sleeves
The fit of the dress was great however, the length was short especially when wearing heels,

Stunning!
I have never received more compliments! Loved that this dress covered my arms, but showed off my legs, and gave me shape without hugging my love handles. I'm a 36DDD and the 10 fit my chest perfectly. A few people commented on how short it was, but others loved it and I thought it was fun (Though it was short enough that made sitting complicated, and don't pick up anything off the floor...)

Comfortable and flattering
I wore this dress out for the more casual of two bachelorette weekend evenings in Charleston, SC in September. This dress is crazy comfortable! The color is a nice dark pink / mauve and I loved the big sleeves. Will definitely rent again - probably for a different type of event.

Comfortable, fun dress!
I loved this dress! I wore it to my friends wedding rehearsal dinner and it was extremely comfortable. The color was gorgeous and the sleeves were fun! It's super forgiving around the stomach area if you have a bigger chest.

Great dress for an in between cocktail party/ball
The dress fit well. I am usually between a 2 and a 4. The 4 fit great and I got positive feedback all night. The dress is so comfortable and the sleeves and vibrant color really make you stand out. I would definitely rent this again.

Delicious color, dreamy details, quality fabric.
This dress was perfect for an early Valentine's soirée! True to color, (mostly) true to size. Loved the exposed gold zipper and pretty sleeve pleats – they laid just right! A little short, but nothing scandalous.

Classy, beautiful, short
I had a work retreat and used this dress for our gala and awards ceremony. The color was beautiful-sort of a deep pinkish purple. The fit was flattering. The only drawback was that it was really short. The hem in the back is slightly shorter than the front. Really hard to sit in because of the length.

Versatile and flattering
I wore this both to a New Year's Eve dinner and a presentation where my audience was college students. Loved it and really didn't want to return it. It had a small amount of fraying at the neckline but it hardly showed because it was towards the inside of where the fabric lay. Probably would have bought it otherwise. The shorter length nicely offsets the voluminous sleeves.

Not for those with broad shoulders.
The body of this dress fit great, but the sleeves not so much. The sleeve has a great full effect on the model and in other photos. But if you have broad shoulders, your shoulders will fill up the sleeve, causing it to stick out at an angle. The sleeves ended up looking more like wings, not hanging like they were supposed to, and made me look even broader up top. Had I sized up to fit my shoulders, then the body of the dress would have been way too big and done nothing for my figure. Beautiful color, the style just didn't work for my body type!

Disappointed!
I always wear a 12 or 14 dress depending on how I want it to fit. Some comments say it is big and some comments say it is true to size. It was very fitted around the body so that I could not wear it. I wanted the loose fitting of the picture and got a dress that was too curve hugging for my grandmother's birthday party.

Flattering dress!
Very flattering, easy dress. Can be dressed up or down. I wrote it to a work semi-form awards banquet with a statement necklace and it was perfect! I am 5'1 and the length in a size 6 is perfect. Could potentially be too short for those who are taller. Overall great dress!

Very pretty dress. The fabric is a little heavy which might get hot in the summer.
I wore my normal size in this dress. It is on the short side, but it wasn't too short. The fit is forgiving so even though I ate a HUGE dinner, I still felt pretty and comfortable.

Not really a shift
If you want this dress to fit as pictured then order a size up. I rented my usual size and it was still really cute but a much tighter fit around my hips. Lightweight and pretty color!

Great dress for a winter wedding!
I loved this dress as it was a little different from my other rentals in the past. You could wear in the summer or the winter but the fabric was perfect for winter and easily paired great with black tights and little black booties. It is more of a straight cut so I would recommend sizing up for a backup size if you have wider hips. Color is fun and vibrant and overall very comfortable! Would absolutely recommend!

Great fabric and color.
The fabric feels great. The color is great. Lots of compliments. I will say, I usually wear a 6, but I think everyone should order two sizes up. I think a 10 would have been the better fit, but I couldn't order that size and the 8 I made work, but it was tight.

Loved this dress!! It ran pretty true to size (more form fitting in the middle) and was really comfortable. I am only 5'1" so length was perfect but can see how it might be on the shorter side if you are taller.

This dress was amazing!
This was the perfect dress for a fall roof top wedding in Atlanta! I am typically a size 12/14, and the 12 was perfect! The shirttail hem make it feel a bit shorter that it really is. I would totally rent again!

Love!
I am 5'2'' and usually wear a 0 or 2. The 0 fit but I preferred the 2 because the dress was little looser and thought it looked better with the wide sleeves.

Obsessed with this dress! I wish I owned it!
This dress exceeded my expectation. The fit was perfect. The material is on the heavier side but perfect for the fall tent wedding I attended. The color really popped. I got a lot of compliments and felt fabulous in the dress. It was so comfortable and not too tight, but fitted just enough. I love love loved this dress!!

Classy lady meets unique detail
Ladylike isn't my usual go-to style (Nasty Woman here) so I did not expect to like this dress but I loved it! I am slightly apple-shaped (32DDD and slim hips) and this dress fit basically true to size for me although I probably could have sized-down to the 4. This dress wasn't tight on my bust at all which was an awesome change of scenery for my life. It was actually slightly loose through the hip. I do not normally wear dresses with a higher neck because it's not flattering on my bust but this actually looked great. Love the flutter sleeve detail - it adds some edge to the dress and keeps it from being boring. The fabric has a very high-end look but it definitely requires smooth undergarments to perfect the look. I wore the dress with an oversized Kenneth Jay Lane faux-pearl necklace that I also rented and it was perfect! I am 5'2 and the length was absolutely perfect for me - hit my leg in a very flattering spot.

Comfy AND gorgeous!!! Simple yet elegant!
I normally wear a 2 and was able to wear this dress at 5 months pregnant, it was perfect! Very forgiving for small baby bumps but it also is not stretchy fabric so order a size up too. I wasn't sure I liked it when I tried it on originally but once hair and makeup were done, I felt super glam! And all at only $30!!!

Super cute dress - great color!
Loved the dress! It was perfect for the semi-black tie wedding we attended. The fabric was a bit on the heavier side and the color was gorgeous. My only complaint is that it fit a bit more snug that I was hoping for and I had to wear the size up (size 2) of my two options so it wasn't too short and tight.

Gorgeous and unique
I rented two sizes in this dress-both ended up fitting, but I chose the 4 because it was more fitted than the slightly looser and longer fit of the 6. I loved the color of this dress, the length, the sleeves, and just about everything else. I wore this to a bridal shower and received so many compliments. Maybe the most ever. I was worried it might end up being too long on me, since I'm pretty petite, but if anything it was on the short side. I had to be careful when lifting my arms or bending too far at the waist. But overall, I wish I could have kept it. It was perfect-and my first RTR experience! I paired it with the RJ Graziano Jolly Necklace, and it looked great and so classy!

Loved that it showed off my legs! Sleeves were super fun and flirty.
I wanted something different than what I usually wear and this was a good choice for that. Fit how I expected and was comfortable. I wore stilettos at the church and switched to ballet slippers for the reception and both looked cute.

Fun Birthday Dress
Rented for my birthday - and it was perfect. Comfy and flattering. The sleeves are fun and flirty. Both the 12 and 14 fit, but liked the extra room in the 14 - especially since we were eating hibachi for dinner. And you know you have a winner when your friend says, "I think I rented that dress before."

Simple but different.
I wore this for a brunch wedding. The color was gorgeous and the fabric was nice, thick, and lined. It was perfect for a fall morning. It was a little shorter than I'd anticipated, but not at all inappropriately short. It is very fitted, so take that into account. It really hugs your body. The sleeves make this dress!

Love the color, material, and received many compliments on the sleeves.
It is tight on the abdomen and hips, there were no other sizes available, so I was only able to get a size 2. I fit nice, but I would have wanted the style to be a little loose like the photo.
