Not the greatest dress in the world, but definitely pretty and did the job!
The dress fit well, a little snug on the hips and loose in the waist, for me at least, and surprisingly short. The dress was a nicer color in person than in photos. It was a nice dress and did the job but didn't have a WOW factor. Great for the price though. The unique sleeves give it some oomf, but it is really just a shift.

Beautiful and eye catching!
This dress was so flattering on! The sleeves create such an interesting silhouette. It is rather short so I wore pantyhose underneath. I was a few months pregnant when I rented it and it fit great over my bump. It such a cute dress and I got stopped by nearly everyone with compliments or wondering where I got it. I added a chunky necklace and pumps and it was just perfect. This would be great for a night out, date night, or a cocktail party. You could dress it up or down depending on your accessories. Highly recommend. I will probably rent this again once I have the baby!

Loved the color!
Loved the dress, got a lot of compliments. I ended up wearing the 10 over the 12, it was a little loose, but still fit great. The hem line on the dress I wore seemed a little altered, didn't look great close up, but wasn't bad enough to be noticeable to others. I'd recommend this dress to others-very comfortable!

Fabulous color and cut!
I thought the other reviews saying to up a size were being dramatic ("it's a shift dress, isn't it?!"), but I heeded their warning just to be safe ("it's okay if it's a bit baggy"). Thank goodness, I did! I wouldn't have wanted to go any smaller and risk having the dress pull around the hips. As long as you accommodate for that in your ordering, you'll love this dress. Extremely flattering and beautiful color!

SF MOMA Modern Ball's Post-Modern Party
This dress was a great entry as my first time using rtr. I'm normally around an 8 and ordered the 8 and 10. It was VERY short. The 10 fit a little more like a shift dress, I ended up wearing the 8 even though it was a bit tighter then I usually wear, mostly because it seemed like it would ride up less. I decided against shape wear because it kept bunching up weird under the dress. I was worried the sleeves would be overpowering, but they were light and didn't feel noticeable while wearing. I can see how this dress might be difficult to wear if you are more bottom heavy, it was skin tight against my hips and butt, and I don't consider myself to be particularly large on that area.

Great dress for a cold/rainy wedding
The fabric is pretty thick so it was perfect for a cold/rainy wedding I went to at the beginning of March. I loved that it had sleeves and was a little different. I felt like the dress came up a little high on the sides so I paired it with some black tights, black heeled boots and a black statement necklace and loved the look! Would rent again!

The dress did fit a little shorter with my growing bump. Overall, it was great fit!

The color and fit are gorgeous!
I wore this dress to a friend's spring wedding and absolutely loved it! I ordered a 4 and a 6 but ended up going with the 6 because it was a bit longer and more forgiving in the belly area. The 6 was still short but not so short that I felt uncomfortable. The color was less pink than I expected but I almost liked that more- it was gorgeous! The dress paired well with flats which was perfect for an outdoor wedding but would look great with heels too. The sleeves are unique and fun. I didn't want to send it back!

I loved this dress and would absolutely wear it again! I live in workout clothes on a daily basis so for me to buy clothes for a training didn't make sense- it was cheaper and easier to rent! I was so happy with my selection.

Great Statement
I rented this dress for a late-winter wedding. The dress was very comfortable, and a great length.... I am 5'4 so sometimes dresses are "matronly long" if they are meant to be normal length, but too short for a wedding if they are mini.. this one was perfect! The sleeves are certainly a statement, and probably a bit larger than I was anticipating, but in a good way. I have an athletic build with broader shoulders, and this dress was great for that if you are similar! I would recommend this dress :)

Perfect, but too short.
This dress would be a 5-star rating, but it's too short. It fit everywhere, including the bust, which can sometimes be an issue because I have large chest, but it was perfect here. The dress was intended to be worn to a daytime presentation ball. It is a conservative event and daytime and I'm in my mid-40s, so I had to wear something else. I was sad because I had been looking forward to it and Trina Turk is one of my favorite designers. If you are on the younger side, go for it! Beautiful color!

Normally wear between a 6 and 8 and this dress was too tight. Wished I had gotten a 10 as I was unable to wear the dress to my event. Great material and color.

Loved the color and got a lot of compliments!
I typically wear a size 6 or 8 in dresses, but ordered an 8 and 10 after reading a few reviews. I'm glad I did because I ended up wearing the 10 , and it was still a little shorter and hip-hugging than I had expected. Overall I would definitely recommend this dress BUT size up if you've got hips/butt or you'll have issues.

Beautifully colored dress, flirty and fun!
This was my first choice for an outfit for my friend's wedding. I normally wear a size 12 but I ordered the 14 to be on the safe side due to the reviews stating that it was short lengthwise and can hug the belly. The 14 fit great and gave me extra space to move and dance in. I wore it with nude heels and rose gold accessories. I received lots of compliments. Beware, the dress is short so mind your backside!

Excellent customer service
I wore this to a semi formal wedding and felt fabulous in pink while everyone else wore black. This was great for my post baby body. It does run short so be forewarned! I am wearing between a 6 & 8 most days but I wanted to have room to breathe and dance so I went with the 10. The 6 would have been tight and the 8 fit but was more snug and short than I wanted. I'm 5' 6" and wore it with nude wedges. Since I'm nursing my chest is extra large and this still made me feel slim! I'm wearing a 34DD and had room to move.

A beautiful color and fabric and the dress fit really well on my 5'2 frame.
The sleeves were a bit large for me, but a big chunky necklace and curls helped balance them out. The fit is loose enough to be forgiving but tight enough to rock the dress at an evening party!

Cute but really short
I'm 5'5" with wide hips and even with one size up, I still thought this was inappropriately short for the event I rented it for so I didn't end up wearing it. I would get two sizes up. Really cute, maybe less so for the broad shouldered bc the butterfly sleeves are quite large.

Beautiful Color and Cut!
I rented this dress for a day of numerous events so I needed something that would go from day to night. I am also four months pregnant so I was looking for something that would have a little bit of give. This dress was exactly that! My pre-pregnancy size would typically be a 0 so I went two sizes up and got the size 2 and size 4. I ended up wearing the size 2 and was very comfortable throughout the day. I received numerous compliments as to how figure flattering the dress was and how beautiful the color is. I would definitely recommend this dress and would consider renting it again!!

I got so many compliments on this dress! As a body conscious gal, this dress was perfect because of the sleeves and forgiving fabric. I wore the 12 so it wouldn't hug my middle, and I was focused on having fun all night instead of worried about my dress. I wish I could have kept it!

I did not wear it out, a little snug.
Thus was a beautiful dress, however I never wore it out. It was a little snug on he hips and loose on the chest area. It could be that I am so petite under 5'. Beautiful color and comfortable material.

Great dress
If you want it to fit like the model pictures size up one or two sizes. It runs on the smaller side and is extremely short. I wouldn't have felt comfortable wearing it without tights especially since the sides go up. It was a great dress for a bridal shower.

I am generally a 4 or 6 in dresses and the 6 was a perfect fit. I am short so I didn't have a problem with length. Beautiful color and loved the sleeves. Would rent again!

Perfect pop of color for spring!
Wore this for Easter, and it was the perfect dress. The sleeves, length, and shape made it a great daytime dress. I'll admit, I have an athletic, hourglass figure, and the tush was a little tight. All in all a great dress!

Pretty, stylish dress but runs small & short!
I had to size up to my backup (8) from my normal (6). The 6 was too tight around the hips, but the top (bust, shoulders) fit fine. I wasn't comfortable with the tightness around the hips and felt more comfortable in the 8. It was a little short, and I'm only 5'2". When I sat down I felt like I was exposing a lot of leg. I loved the sleeves, though, as I felt it added something to the overall style. I wore my hair up to not distract from the sleeves with a statement necklace. This would have also looked nice with big earrings instead of a statement necklace. The color was a little darker than it seemed on the website, too. I think it was more fall than spring color-wise.

Perfect for unpredictable weather
Loved this dress, we had a mid-March wedding and I wasn't sure if it was going to be 70 or 30 degrees. Looking at how other girls wore it, it still looked great paired with tights (which is what I ended up doing because it was 28 that night!) Hubby said it was the best dress I've gotten. I got many complements on the color... Very pretty. Both the 8 and 6 fit well but I thought the 6 hugged my shape better. It is short, I was happy I wore tights underneath so I wasn't so concerned about that.
