Beautiful colors for Spring, strange fit
I rented this dress for graduation. RTR lists the plus sizes as 16W, 18W, etc. in the drop down but they are not. The dresses I got were standard 16 and 18 sizes, not 16W and 18W. In every dress i've rented i've been able to wear the 16W. Not with this dress! I needed the 18 and even then it barely fit in the waist. The skirt was plenty roomy. I guess I have a short torso because the bust and scalloped back were very strange fits and too large. The front of the bust was very gappy, even though I am a 40D and consider myself to be proportionate (although I am starting to learn that maybe 40D is considered a small bust size for a 16W because many many dresses with high necklines are too loose for me in the bust). I was also very hopeful that the scalloped back would be modified on the plus sized version to come up a bit higher. My biggest problem areas in terms of wanting to cover up are my arms and my upper back. Unfortunately, because the dress was so small and tight in the waist (there is no stretch) I had to wear the larger size which made the back of the dress droop and cover NOTHING in terms of self-conscious back rolls. The front of the dress is relatively short, falling just above the knee on my 5'3" frame. I loved the hi-low hem but had to stay covered in my gown unfortunately because there was a stain on the dress. Fair warning, this dress is bright white and may arrive with some subtle stains if it's not brand new. It was also very wrinkly so allow time to iron before an event. Overall, the dress looks better on a hanger than it does in person. The pros would be that the length is very good for shorter ladies, it is modest enough for church, and the colors are wonderful. Cons are a disproportionately small waist with a large bust and back that drops below problem areas, and potential for stains and wrinkles. I would not rent this dress again and may start steering away from high necklines in general.

Flattering fit! Received compliments all night.
I was so glad I ordered a size smaller than my regular size as back up. I am 5', 115 lbs and usually wear a 4, but I wore the 2 in this dress. Such a cute pattern and fit - loved the hi-lo aspect! Would absolutely recommend!

I wore this for the Kentucky Derby this year and it was perfect for the occasion!
Ran bigger than I expected. I should have ordered a size 0. I'm 5'3 108 lbs and the 2 was too big in the chest. Luckily I could pin it and the pins were easily hidden with the style in the back. It was a cute and really comfortable dress, just the wrong size for me!

It was a bright and vibrant dress, that was outstanding when stepping into a room.
Fits true to size. Excellent to wear if you have fuller hips.

The contrast of the bright blue on white for Spring
Beautiful dress; wore it to an afternoon wedding. Bust is a bit small, so order up if needed.

I wish this would have fit! It is beautiful!!
I ordered this dress for Easter weekend but was unable to wear both sizes I ordered because the dress ran so small. I would recommend going up 2 sizes. The dress however was beautiful and I wish it would have worked!!

The color of the flowers on the dress is gorgeous!
I wore this dress for Easter Sunday church and brunch. The color is stunning and I love the hi-lo hem. However, I feel this dress runs small so I would recommend to size up one (or two!) sizes. I typically wear a 16 in dresses but could not even zip up the 16W. I wore the 18W and it was still snug. There is no give in the waist so I wore extreme undergarments to hold me in. I loved the unique racerback in the navy. If I were to rent this dress again, I would probably rent an even bigger size.

Perfect for a spring wedding or Easter sunday!
I wore this to an evening wedding Saturday, and wore it to our family Easter party Sunday - it worked perfectly for both occasions! I am obsessed with this dress! I LOVE LOVE it!! I typically wear a size 4, but ordered small because my size was not available. It was a little snug on my boobs, but I am a 34D, and it fit over them just right without smashing them down and looking flat or weird. I would have been a little more comfortable in the size 4, but the size 2 worked for the weekend. The material is so light and airy, so extremely comfortable! The only thing I didn't like was how easily the dress wrinkled. With the fabric being such a thin material, it was very wrinkly after sitting for a short amount of time. I just took a steamer to it for a few minutes and it helped to de-wrinkle. I would definitely BUY this dress, I love it so much!

Definitely stood out!
I wore this to a gala honoring my father-in-law. It's a beautiful dress and hid my biggest flaw (my belly) well. It is a fabric with not much give, so I found that I had to go up a size to be comfortable. However the back ended up being a bit loose as a result. Overall, I was really happy with how I looked .

It was perfect for a rainy Spring afternoon Bridal Shower!!!
As expected by now, having rented from RTR for about 3-4 years now, the compliments rained upon me like a Spring Shower (I don't care if that was corny -- it was also accurate!). I LOVED this dress! It was very lightweight and girly. I don't usually wear the same thing twice, but I might keep this in my "Hearts" because this was such a pleasure to wear! I would definitely recommend this for any daytime event!

Received many compliments.
This dress is perfect for a spring or summer event. I was going to a day event on vacation in California. I received so many compliments. It's a little bit longer than I expected. I am shy of 5'3". Also it would look nicer if it was more cinched in the waist. It was roomy in the waist and hip area so it doesn't give as slimming look as one may like. Also put your makeup on after you have the dress on because it will otherwise get on the dress. Loved the dress overall!

This dress was stunning. I got so many compliments and it was very flattering!
Loved the dress, but it was very small at the waist. I had to go up a size. This ended up making the bust and arms a little big, but overall I enjoyed it.

The dress was gorgeous and perfect for outdoor spring wedding!
I loved the look and feel of this dress! The high-low hem was so classy and the floral design was perfect for a spring wedding without being too busy. I usually fall between a 4 and 6, but I ordered sizes 6 and 8 due to previous reviews that the dress ran small, The 6 fit well, but I definitely had extra room in the bust and waist, so I think the 4 would have fit perfectly. Overall, the dress was beautiful, I received tons of compliments and was comfortable all night long!

This was such a beautiful dress that I received so many compliments on! It was flowy and comfortable
This dress is truly versatile. It could be worn to an outdoor wedding (what I attended) or a more formal indoor affair and fit right in. I have a larger bust line as well as larger hips that fit perfectly into this dress. It truly fits to size. It was comfortable for all day wear. I wish I could buy it!

Love getting the package from the UPS guy!
I rented the 2 which fit around the waist not the bust. The 4 and 6 were unavailable so I rented the 8. From some of the other reviews it "ran small so size up". I don't necessarily find that to be true. It was a great dress. Wrinkles easy though. Comfy. All in all it was an OK rental.

This dress was perfect for a spring wedding!! The flower pattern and color were just gorgeous.
The dress fits pretty true to size, although the bust area was just a tiny bit big. Overall good fit and very comfortable to wear for an entire night. I definitely fell in love with this dress. Stunning color.

Liked it so much I will buy it.
Roomy in the hip and super small fitted waist. I usually wear a 4 and the 4 was snug just like I wanted it to be. If the hip is roomy I don't want it roomy at all in the waist. No stretch at waist bus fair bit of stretch in navy panel at bust line. Loved this dress. Will probably buy it I liked it so much.

Lots of compliments about this dress!
I absolutely adored this dress! It felt really comfortable and was so different to anything I have worn before. The length was perfect but I am petite so it would be quite short if you are taller. The upper part of the dress is small - I am pear shaped so this was fine but you would need to go up a size if you have a larger bust. Overall it's a fabulous dress and I'd love to own it!

Wore this dress for my bridal shower- got several compliments on it.
I ordered a 0 and a 2, but the 0 size fit the best. Was a little tight around the waist, but the back scalloped design was a little too loose. Overall, was very happy with the way it turned out though.

Wore it to my in laws 50th wedding anniversary party.
It fit beautifully! I wore a size 4. I am 5'6" and unfortunately at 145 lbs. Since I carry my weight in my butt and legs, the fit and flare was perfect for me. I have a long torso so the dress was a little shorter than I would have liked in the front but it was still appropriate because of the length in the back and the demure fit of the top.

It was the perfect dress for my BFF's baby shower. The Godmother (me) looked great!
The dress was looser on me than I expected, which was good, but I had to pin it in areas to make it more fitted, which was easy to do. It's so lightweight and thin and pretty. My boyfriend said it might look better on a taller person, and I agree; the flare part would be more flowy. (I'm 5'4 but the flare was just enough for me) I'd rent this dress again but in a smaller size.

Beautiful dress for a different body type!
The fabric of this dress is beautiful, but it looked terrible on me because it was way way too tight at the waist, yet way way too roomy around my shoulders and chest. The back panel was gaping it was so big, but I could barely squeeze the zipper up on the side because the dress was so tight on me. It also seemed a bit too long on me in the back. Thankful for RTR though, because they overnighted me another dress!

LOVED this dress!
If I could have bought this dress, I would have. It flowed so nicely, the high/low hemline gorgeous. I felt like a 20 out of 10 stars. I even found an excuse to wear it again. However, I was worried about it running too small per other reviewers. I sized up my primary and back up size. This was a mistake. This was not the case for me. My primary dress was a tad bit too loose in the bust and waist. I have a 40C bust and a 34" waist. I would've been swimming in my backup size. The dress does not have any stretch, so if you're in between sizes it may be worth to size up.

Sorry it's not the best picture, but it is the best one I have in the dress! I loved it and wish I could've kept it! Will definitely use RTR again. I usually wear a 14-16, but I wore the 18 in the dress!

The fit was made for someone taller, (I know I'm super short), but even so the torso did not fit great. The fabric is just alright. Kind of disappointing over.

Great graduation dress!
This dress was GORGEOUS - got complements all night! The colors were vibrant and the fit was easy and comfortable. It was true to size but the bust isn't terribly accommodating. My husband didn't like the navy section in the back, but I thought it added a cute dimension; make sure you look at photos so you're not caught off guard.

Back was very weird
I fell in love with this dress because of the back. When I put the dress on it gaps where the navy scallops are down the back. I am only 5'4 maybe it I was taller that would T of happened.

reviews said it ran small, but I usually wear a 0 and the 0 fit perfectly! I'm only 5'3'' so the back came down a little longer on me than I would've liked, but overall it's a beautiful dress and I loved wearing it.

I LOVED this dress. It's form fitting, but flattering and comfortable and easy to wear a bra under. The skirt floats in the wind like Marilyn Monroe. I got tons of compliments and was sad to send it back.
