Great color and style!
This was a classic dress. It was comfortable and fit well. It was a little big around my mid-section, but fit my shoulders well. There was a tiny tear where the cape meets the actual shoulder portion of the dress, but you really could not tell and no one noticed it. I would certainly wear this again.

Sassy show
I used this dress for a wedding in my family. If your looking for a tight form fitting dress this isn't it , this ran really loose in the torso & breast area . The dress does make a statement and I looked and felt great in it , just wish it was form fitting. I rented accessories as well but the only one I used was the purse very big for its size and made a great statement!! Overall this was a good experience and this time around so was the customer service thank you devan !

Unusual lovely dress
This dress was elegant, interesting and pretty forgiving. My husband thought the cape was weird but I found it super pretty and high fashion and the length and fit were great as I had a baby a few months ago and my size is a bit wonky.

I received a plethora of compliments on this dress!
Overall, this dress is great and I would have kept it! The style was longer than anticipated, and the color was a bit darker than anticipated. This is a shift dress so the midsection was very forgiving. I would highly recommend this dress for any occasion.

Roomy on top
Normally wear a size 2-4 but order larger in luxury brands. Should have stuck with a 2 - the top was too big for a 34A. The darts were handing halfway down my chest! Did not wear.

Loved the half cape look! Perfect for a beautiful outdoor spring wedding!
For true to size, the 6 was a little too lose for me.

Tons of compliments
This dress was an emergency backup after my original dress from RTR was a huge fail. I received it when promised and purposely sized up based on the reviews. The style and color were definitely a departure for me, but I was pleasantly surprised with how much my friends loved it.

I loved this dress. I did get compliments, and my husband thought it was sexy.
I am 5'2 1/2" and 105 lbs. The dress fit well. The bust seam on the left side was a bit off, but I think it was due my strapless bra continuously falling down. If you have the right bra it should be fine. It was very comfortable.

Lots of compliments !!!
Wore this to a nursing gala. Lots of compliments all night from total strangers. This is a very classy dress. I read it ran small - the 8 fit well, a little loose up top but tight around my midsection. The 10 was very loose but I knew I wouldn't have to suck it in all night. I decided on spanx and the size 8. I did read that people went larger to be able to feel more free to dance !but I thought the 10 was just too loose. Anyway the dress is beautiful you don't need much jewelry at all!! My first RTR and I am very very happy.

Beautiful color
Beautiful color dress - however, I didn't end up wearing it for my engagement photos. Also dress runs a little on the small side. Shoulder wear cape is attached doesn't have much give (can't put your arm up easily).

The color and style of the dress was wonderful.
It ran true to size and in some areas a little snug. I am usually a 6/8 and a six would not have fit.

Simple, unique, classy
Absolutely gorgeous dress. The cape detail is so fun, and the color is vibrant. Got so many compliments. It was a fun dress, but not over-the-top or too attention-grabbing, so it was great for a wedding. I'm very petite, and it fit me well, although I needed tape to keep the sleeveless side from falling down and exposing me.

I loved the style of this dress. It was classy with a fun flare with the cape.
I felt it did run a bit small. So glad I ordered up. I normally wear a 6 and I wore the 8. I have an athletic figure and it was the perfect silhouette for a work function and fundraiser. I'm 5'9 and a 34c if that helps. I received many compliments all evening and felt very stylish yet comfortable in it.

Did the job.
I knew I was going to be 17 weeks pregnant at the time of the wedding and I had no clue how big I would be. I went with the larger size 6 but not because I was showing. It was comfortable especially as the evening went on and the temperature dropped from the mid 80s to maybe 50s? The wedding was in a barn so there were some open windows. It wasn't something I would have chosen if I wasn't pregnant but it looked great on.

Unique and creative dress that flows when you walk.
Wore this to a fundraiser and I felt unique and flirty. Fits more snug when you sit down, so be prepared for that. I wore a strapless bra and t worked out fine. Overall great dress!

Loved the cape!
The fit is great! I was a little concerned because I was 8 weeks postpartum and I didn't know how well the top would fit, but it was totally fine! The cape was super cute, dress was flattering, and I got tons of compliments.

Early Spring Wedding in Atlanta
This was my replacement dress after my original rental was damaged by the previous renter. This dress runs a tad bit small in the chest so if you have a full bust like me I recommend sizing up. Despite that I love this dress, it's just sexy enough for a wedding without doing too much. I love anything with a cape so that added touch really made it for me. I would definitely wear this again for another occasion.

Great dress, unique and comfy
The size 4 fit well but a bit short that's why I decided on the 6, much easier to dance all night long in. Got compliments on it. Loved it. It's a much darker blue than I was expecting which was great.

Everyone loved the dress!
The fit was true to size. I loved it except the seam of the dress came loose but no one noticed. I'm 5"1 and the dress was about 3 inches above the knee. I would rent again.

Classy style
This dress was my original pick but I ended up wearing the back up dress because of the feel of the event. This dress is comfortable, stunning, and simple and if I had a day event to go with the wedding, I would have definitely worn it! True to size, but there is no give in the material.

Charitable Ball Fun!
The only reason why I did not give this 5 stars was the fitted slip in the dress. I picked the dress because it said it was good for hourglass shape, but it was a little too snug on my booty. I am glad I had the backup size of 10 to be able to still wear it, but the 10 was a little large in the bust and waist. Overall though I had many compliments and loved the experience -- just maybe a little note for gals with big booties you need to order a size up! Also -- there are 3 hanger strings to be ready to have someone keep an eye out ;)

Compliments all night!
I wore this dress for a Gala and got lots of compliments. The color is beautiful and much brighter blue than my picture shows. It was a bit loose up top and snug around the hips on me. I would rent this again in a heartbeat, though!

Fun and colorful!
I ended up choosing the size 6 because it fit my hips better than the 4. This dress was incredibly comfortable and flattering, and I received so many compliments! The hanger straps were an ongoing annoyance, so my friends kept an eye out for loose strings.

Fabulous dress!
I am a size 10 and muscular - the 12 was a little loose fitting in the waste ... but fit my chest perfect. It looked great and had such a great "flow" when I walked. I had many of my friends - who knew it was rtr - tell me I should but the dress!!

Wow. What a dress.
The color, fit, length, comfort, style...amazing. It was the best dress in the room and people LOVED it. The "cape" on the back was perfect. Someone told me "in looked like I was floating"'as I walked across the room. Beautiful. Perfect for a wedding or formal affair.

Partial cape is fully fantastic!
I rented this dress to wear for New Year's Eve. It was a lot of fun to have a partial cape and the fabric flows very well on this dress. It does run small as I normally wear a 2 but I didn't want it clinging to my hips in the front so I wore the size 4. Probably because I was in the larger size the straps that keep a piece on the hanger kept coming out of the dress at the chest and shoulder. That is why I gave it 4 stars.

It was a back up dress.
I usually wear a size 12, but it did not even fit my hips. Beautiful dress but should order 1 or 2 sizes larger than normal. Not a good fit for curvy/ hour glass.

A little too big
Rented this for the Christmas symphony concert. I am a size 10 but hesitate ordering a 10 when only one size is available. The 12 was way too big and gave me not shape whatsoever. The color and style is gorgeous though.

Great comfortable dress
I ordered 2 styles of this same colored dress. This one was great...prob could have done the 6 but because of the style, the 8 didn't look too big. Was extremely comfortable but in the end i chose to wear the other dress
