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.

I got so many compliments. I used the "bump friendly" filter and found this dress listed. It was very comfortable, especially because I was 7 months pregnant and nothing was comfortable then :)

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!

Read that dress is short on other reviews and that is true but, overall this dress is perfect. I got so many compliments!!

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!!

Beautiful color, fun fit!
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!

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.

LOVED this dress. I am a RtR regular and this is my fave yet. The color is even better in real life.
Fits true to size (maybe a bit big as I am 15 weeks pregnant at the moment). Got loads of compliments!

Great dress!
This dress was perfect for a Spring wedding. I am usually a size 4 or 6. But after reading reviews I went with the 6 and 8. Ended up wearing the 8 as it was a more comfortable and loose fit. Super flattering dress. The color is more of a deep magenta in person. Loved this dress!

Great options for any event!
I was hesitant that the 6 would be too big because I normally wear a 4 (and it wasn't available), but after reading reviews stating that it ran small, I decided to give it a shot anyway. The 6 fit like a glove, I wore it to a bridal shower and received a ton of compliments!

Great color, fun sleeves
The size 2 was just a little bit roomy which was perfect since there was a lot of eating at the wedding I wore it to. Even though it was a little bit big, it wasn't noticeable. Length was fine for me, but I am on the shorter side. I probably would have preferred the size 0 if I didn't need the extra room for a big dinner.

Was perfect for a last minute wedding!
I wish I had a better picture!! I picked this dress for two reasons- the color and the sleeves. Both are beautiful in person! It's a true berry color and is very flattering. I'm self conscious about my arms, so I tend to rent dresses with sleeves and most of the time they run small and/or make the dress ride up when you lift your arms even the slightest bit to dance... not with this dress since the sleeves are billowy! It IS pretty short however, limiting its 'danceability' which is why I'm only giving it 4 stars. It was great for a semi-formal March wedding!

Right dress, wrong size...
The color and sleeves make this dress stand out. I was really looking forward to wearing it, but I could barely squeeze into it. When I finally got the dress on, I looked exactly how I felt ... huge!! I had a friend try it on and it looked adorable on her. Mind you, she is a size 6. I haven't given up on this dress, I will just order the largest size it comes in and skip a few meals that week ;) It doesn't fit like a shift dress as the fabric doesn't give at all. Size up a few sizes and you'll look fabulous.

Wore this to a Friday night wedding.
I ordered a 6 and an 8 - the 6 wouldn't go over my hips. I was hoping the dress would be more like a shift and loose fitting over the stomach (because no one needs to see me in anything that clings to my stomach) so I wish I had gotten a 10. It was pretty short and I had to be careful getting in and out of the car! BUT - the color was gorgeous, the material was substantial and not flimsy and it was REALLY comfortable - you can wear any bra with it.

Perfect for a friend's bridal shower!
This dress is gorgeous! Like the other reviews said, it runs small! My usual size fit, but was tight around my hips, so I am very glad that I went up a size for a free backup. If you are pear shaped I would consider wearing shape wear too just to make sure everything is smoothed! Overall the dress was fantastic for a bridal shower, with a beautiful color. The fabric is thick making it perfect for early march weather!

Sexy but still classic look and feel. Very comfortable, although fitted. Any hangy skin will show, so spanx or super built body is a must.

Not flattering to an hourglass shape
I ordered this to wear to a winter wedding. Unfortunately, a snow storm prevented it from being delivered on time (but RTR reimbursed me for the rental, no problem). I tried it on anyway. I am usually a 4 or 6 in dresses. The 6 was tight in the hips, and the 8 huge. This was not flattering to me, as it was baggy on top and too tight on the bottom. I think this would look good on someone with a very straight figure, but not good if you have a waist.

I rented this dress for a party and ordered a size down rather than up on accident. I was 23 weeks pregnant and the 4 was just too tight for comfort. One size up would have been perfect. Color is great. Wish this one would have worked!

Beautiful color...loved the sleeves. Definitely not too much for a wedding!
Dress was slightly small so I didn't end up wearing it. Was small around the thighs and just didn't look right. I loved the fun sleeves, they weren't too big. Dress was bright and unique without being too flashy. I'd probably order a size up next time.

Great pop of color, fun sleeves, easy rental process!
After reading the reviews, I opted to rent the size 12 and 14. I definitely could have worn the 12 but I wanted a looser fit. I have a pear body shape and am in between sizes. The top was a little loose but I preferred that. Bonus points for not having to wear spanx and feeling comfortable all night. I would recommend a strapless bra. The neckline hits just past where a regular bra strap would rest. The dress is also pretty thick which was perfect for a February wedding. I paired this with the Kate Spade Fame and Flowers necklace which matched perfectly. All in all, a great experience!
