The picture is stunning! The color of this dress is way darker than shown. I am 5'1" and it was way too long. I also wear a size 0 and it was too big!! It was even big in the bust area and I am a 32C. I wish I picked another dress.

Needed a smaller size
I am a true 4- I do fit modeling for size 4 so I know my size is definitively 4. This dress was way too big. Loose fitting all over. They didn't have my back-up size 2 but I didn't think it would be a problem. I ended up not going with this dress, but the color is fantastic and it might be sexy if it fit.

overall happy
I wore this dress to a wedding and found it to be comfortable and a beautiful stand out color. However, I did find that the bust and hip area ran a little big and if I were to order again I would have ordered the smaller size to wear. While it was not my favorite rental, it was a solid pick and I was pleased with it.

Great Dress but couldn't wear
I really did love this dress. I got it in a 2 and I do have very small shoulders and they were just a little too loose on me. If I owned this dress I would have just had the straps taken in. But, other than that the dress is a beautiful color.

I loved the color of this dress. I am petite so the dress was fell right above my knee and the straps were long as well. Other than that, super comfortable and easy to wear!

I wanted to love it....
I really did. I rented this as a back up for the Mochino Chic gold dress (which I LOVED!) and ended up wearing the Mochino. The dress was loose overall and the fabric didn't fall in a way that would make it work. It could have been better if I rented the 0 instead of the 2 but I'm not willing to try again. Oh well....LOOOVEDD the yellow/gold dress I had instead of this one so overall A+ RTR experience.

Well fitting and comfortable -- Just makes ya feel good!
Very form fitting and flattering corset style top and the dress is not super tight in the lower half making it very comfortable if you have dinner plans before the party! The color is a great orange, the dress is well made, and comfortable though a bit more casual due to the fabric so suggest for a more low key night.

The dress was tight on top but a little loose on the bottom, however, I loved it! Didn't feel hoochie, got a ton of compliments on the color.

Had potential... just way too big
I had really high hopes for this dress, but both sizes were way too big. I'm usually a six, but based on some of the reviews saying it ran small in the chest I opted for an 8 in my back up size. Even the 6 was way, way too large. I'm not a skinny girl, but I could grab handfuls of fabric around my waist and hips. It also hit me just at the knees, which was a really awkward length. All together, I looked super dowdy in this dress, when I was hoping for a clingy, sexy, fitted shape. Pros: Cute saturated color. The material is... interesting. Kind of like stretchy parachute material?? That sounds unpleasant, but if it had fit, I would have really liked it.

Too long, strange fabric
I ended up not wearing this dress because it just didn't look right on me. I'm not too terribly short, but it was a lot longer than I expected. It came down around the middle of my knee, which isn't awful, but it's also not very youthful. I also found that the straps were too long, it wasn't at tight as I wanted at the bottom, and the fabric was strange. It kind of made my skin crawl.

Nice color, not for long torso
I really wanted to wear this dress, but it just didn't fit me right. The hips of the dress started too high, creating a pouch in the back. The color is nice and material is thick and stretchy. I would recommend renting this dress as long as you don't have a long torso!

Color was much deeper in person than I expected, fabric was slippery feeling, and it bunched around my waist awkwardly.

Bright and fun dress for a summer wedding
I fell in love with the shape of this dress and have previously rented a Zac Posen. The material is odd, almost plasticky on the outside sheath. It looked beautiful on but was pretty roomy. The straps liked to slide down my shoulders and it was a bit loose in the hips, but overall it was pretty great. Beautiful color and a great cut.

Loved this dress. Got so many compliments all night long, color was awesome and dress was HOTT.
runs a little large - a 2 wouldv'e probably had a little less tight fit around the hips, but the 0 fit fine. Loved the material - nice lightweight but still felt quality.

This dress is so great. It's sexy but appropriate. It's sophisticated but young. I was very comfortable wearing it and it's stretchy material makes it perfect for dancing. I got a ton of compliments and matched my Boyfriend's navy suit perfectly!

Bright and fun
Wish this one fit me better as the bright orange color was beautiful. Definitely size down if you are pettite. I did not fill out the dress - the straps were too long on me, even with my long torso, and the waist did not cinch in much. I am smaller on top than bottom, and it didn't do much to flatter my figure (wear an Herve instead!). This dress would probably be great for someone who is bigger on top than bottom.

Nice color, but dress was too big
I rented this dress as a back up just in case my first pick did not fit since only one size was available the day of my event. I did not end up wearing this dress. The color is a true orange and nice in person however the overall fit of the dress was loose. I am usually a size 4 or 6 depending on the designer and the size 4 was too big. It was fitted in some areas and loose in others. The overall cut of the dress was just not flattering on me. It would have looked better if it was fitted all the way through.

Beautiful, classy dress that was just a little too large to wear!
Loved the color and style of the dress, but it was too big to wear unfortunately. The straps were a touch too long and the waist wasn't as tight as I had hoped. Would be lovely if it fit well!

Cute dress, but small around the chest!
Great dress, but runs small around the chest, so if you are broad shouldered or big chested I recommend sizing up. I usually wear a 4 or 6 and the 6 was still too tight around my chest to wear comfortably.

Great dress for a tea party.
The color definitely isn't as I expected. It's a little darker. The fit is really odd for me. I'm apple shaped and usually wear a 6, but the 6 was way too tight around the boobs (which never happens to me) pretty tight around butt (which also never happens to me). The straps actually run shorter than what it looks like in the picture. It was a really cute dress, but I was thrown off by the fit.

Long straps, small bust
I couldn't wear this dress because the bust wouldn't zip up to the top, and my cleavage was going to fall out of the top. The straps are very long, and then the cups are very small. not meant for anyone with a larger chest, or smaller shoulders.

Stunning color, awkward fit
This dress is NOT a good choice for busty women (I am a 32D). Normally I wear a size zero in everything but I figured since I could also get the size 2 for no extra charge, why not…thank goodness I did this! The zero fit fine everywhere but my chest—I couldn't even zip it all the way up. The size 2 was loose on my torso and hips but still very tight in the chest

the dress
This is a great dress- wonderful saturated orange color. Length wise it fit great on 5'5 - not too long like many dresses - it hits a couple of inches above the knee. It was a little bit tight in the bust and a little bit loose in the torso, so it bunched a little bit and I didn't end up wearing it out, but this dress would probably be very flattering on most people.

Great dress, great color
I was nervous about the fit of this dress and the fabric but I was pleasantly surprised. The material isn't a heavy, stretchy jersey cotton like I expected but thin, smooth, almost slippery and a bit of a stretch. Anyway, it was fitted without being too tight and the color was perfect for New Year's Eve. I'm usually a 0 in Nicole Miller and Shoshanna dresses and thought it fit similarly, though possibly ran a bit larger in the torso.

Good for Straight and Narrows
I rented this dress and wanted to love it! Unfortunately, it didn't work right on my hourglass figure, it seems more suited to a straight and narrow figure. The waist was very loose on me while the busy and hips fit fine. The color is FABULOUS though and the cut is such that you can still wear a bra with or without straps.

Felt and looked like a million
I am 5'5", 125 pounds. I have an athletic body. I wore this dress to a 50th birthday party. Honestly, it was so comfortable and flattering. I got tons of compliments. I wore it with tan sandals and a turquoise necklace...perfect. It hit right above my knee...a perfect length. It was cut beautifully at the bust, so that my boobs looked great. I didn't have to wear a bra. The dress layed beautifully, it wasn't too tight. I NEVER tugged at it, it didn't ride up. I just felt fantastic all night. I wish I could own it. Don't hesitate to rent it. It looks 100% better on than on the hanger. Loved it...loved it...loved it!

My boyfriend said I looked "gorgeous" about 10 times--that was the best thing I could ever hear!
I wore this for my anniversary dinner with my boyfriend. The material was stretchy, so I wore the smaller size and didn't find it to be too tight. I ordered the 10 as my back up size, but didn't even try it on. When he came to pick me up from my apartment, the look on his face was worth every penny! I felt beautiful and he definitely liked it!

Felt Beautiful
Rented this for a friends engagement party. In a sea of blakc dresses the orange really stood out and made and impression. The dress fit realy well. Like in the other reviews I want to stress htat the fabric is not stretchy so make sure you pick the right size. Made your alternative a size up rather than a size down.

I ordered a size too big
I thought that this dress would run small, so I ordered a size 4. But, the size 4 was pretty big on me (so, big that I couldn't wear it). So, I assume that this dress runs true to size.

So comfortable!
I wore this to a wedding this weekend. It was a gorgeous orange color and the 4 fit great (I didn't even need to try on the 6). I am an hourglass and didn't have any issues with the middle part bunching as some of the other reviewers mentioned. It showed a good deal more cleavage on me than the model so I was little nervous about it for the wedding but ultimately it ended up being fine, especially since it came almost to my knees.

Cute little dress, great color
I rented a 4, which ran a little large for me (I'm usually a 2, but figured I'd go up a size given that it's a fitted dress and I wanted to wear it all day and be comfy underneath a graduation gown.) So, I'd say it fits very true to size. Though the fabric is stretchy, the top is quite structured (bust darts.) Because I'm small-busted, I had a bit of extra room up top, and had to wear an extra-padded bra to fill out the top. The dress is a beautiful color (the picture is very true to the shade) but the fabric looks a little cheaper than I expected - very obviously synthetic. To me this was the only real downside.

Nice dress but not formal
I rented this dress for a wedding but didn't end up wearing it because I found it slightly to have a corporate vibe that didn't seem appropriate for a wedding. The cut and style are nice, perhaps more for a work event or dinner than a formal affair. Also, as other reviewers have pointed out, it runs pretty long.

Casual Dress...
I wasn't completely thrilled with this dress, which I rented as a back up for a wedding. The material felt a little cheap though when I tried it on, it fit well. I didnt end up wearing it and would say it is definitely more of a casual dress.
