Great rental

Would recommend for taller ladies since it's a heavier fabric and right at tea length for my height, falls straight down and doesn't hug curves if you're worried about that. It would definitely overwhelm petite ladies. I thought the lace detail was gold, but it is an almost pastel green and mauve so I didnt wear it for my event this time around, but will definitely rent it again in the future for a black tie optional event in early spring or fall.

Great dress!

I rented this dress one size up from my normal size as I am 5 months pregnant. Worked great! Got lots of compliments. Nice heavy lace, flattering skirt on the bump. I actually wore it strapless with the tiny straps tucked in...was very comfortable. I'm 5'6" and it was tea length on me.

Beautiful dress for a spring/summer wedding

I loved this dress and got soooo many compliments at a spring wedding in Texas. Really beautiful, high quality fabric but light and breathable. I could dance all night! The zipper is a little sticky with the fabric; but it worked and fit well. Definitely smaller through the bust but I wore it without a bra and it fit perfect.

The Perfect "black tie optional"

I wore this dress to a black tie optional wedding in Florida. It was breathable even though it was sturdy fabric and I felt comfortable in it all night. The length could have been better. I felt it was a bit long for me at 5'4" and not the T length it should have been but overall I would recommend the dress!

This dress made me feel amazing! It was perfect for the mid morning wedding and lunchtime reception!

This dress was perfect for Houston's mild, spring weather! It's heavy material but it breathes. The straps are easy to hide if you don't want to wear them. I'm 5'5" so it was a little longer than tea length but heels help to lengthen the look. The petals and leaves on the dress are a pastel pink and pastel green. I got so many lovely compliments on it!

Great texture. Perfect for black tie optional wedding.

It's a little tricky to do an arabesque in the dress given it isn't the stretchiest material, but it's flattering and comfortable and I got compliments all night long.

Beautiful flattering dress, heavy fabric

I usually wear a 14 in dresses and that is what I am wearing in the picture! The fabric was heavy and the straps were too big to fit properly but overall the dress was beautiful! I got a lot of compliments. Looking forward to renting another dress again!

LOVED THIS DRESS

I rented this dress for a beach wedding in Miami and I absolutely loved it. I felt so beautiful in it and got lots of compliments on it. It was so unique and different from what any other wedding guest was wearing. The fabric lining under the flowery top layer was heavier than I expected, and might have been too heavy if it was middle of summer. I loved the length of this dress- for my height it came down to the tops of my feet but didn't hit the floor.

Runs big

I was unable to wear this because it runs big and looked like a tent on me. Dresses are sometimes tight on me through the chest area so I thought a 10 would work, but I definitely could have worn an 8 or maybe even a 6. The dress itself is really pretty though! Would recommend for flat chested people

Perfect dress for any occasion

Was so beautiful and girly, yet comfortable. Would rent this dress again - the overall fit was a little loose, but I think the next size down (4) would have been too small. Perfect for someone who's tall - hit tea length.

Was swimming in my normal size!

The dress itself is absolutely stunning! The colors are very different than I expected (though, TBH, I can't recall if I read the product details on colors before ordering). I thought it would be tan and a deep blue/black, but it was pale pink, green, and silvery-grey with dark accents. The lace and material were stunning. The downside: an 8 was falling off of me. A 6 may have been better, but I used my backup on another from this same designer! I do foot between a 6&8, but the 8 worked in the other dress by the same designer. I'm shorter and the dress was down to my ankles and was in the awkward length between tea, ankle, and full.

Wide hips

I don't have especially wide hips but look like I have HUGE hips in this dress. Did not wear. The rest is good but it falls oddly on my waist and the fabric gathers in a very unflattering way!

Ran large, very heavy fabric

Unfortunately this dress didn't work for me. Although it is a pretty dress, I was overall disappointed when I received it. The colors are not as vibrant as it appears in photos. Colors are dull and muted, flowers are muted pink and mint, not at all bright or white as it appeared online. The dress also ran very large as other reviewers have mentioned. I'm usually a pretty true size 6, but ordered a 4 as my backup. If I had worn the dress, I would definitely have worn the 4, however, it still fit sort of frumpy on me. It is a straight fit, not at all fitted, so was not flattering. Fabric was also heavy.

tons of compliments!

This dress was great! The length was nice for me being 5'8", but I can see it being too long on anyone shorter. It was somewhat tight through my bust, so again might not be great for someone with a fuller bust. It was SO hot out at this wedding and the dress was cool, and I never got uncomfortable. The colors are more of a grayish/green and a very muted pink. I ordered one size up and it was definitely too large in the bust so I went with the smaller size even though it was a tad snug.

It widened me

I do not have a narrow waist, and this dress really emphasized that. Between the heavy fabric and the pleating at the waist, this dress was doing me no favors. It really was very unattractive. Definitely didn't pick this one for the event. I'm also pretty tall and this was ankle length on me. No idea who it's tea length on.

Beautiful dress for a wedding or special occasion!

I absolutely love this brand, and this dress was no exception. It was such a pretty and fun dress to wear to a wedding! It would be so perfect for any formal affair! The sizing runs a little large. I'm usually a 4, but the 2 fit me perfectly. The length is somewhere between a maxi and a midi. I'm skittle under 5'4" and it hit at my ankles.

Gorgeous Dress

I didn't end up wearing this to a July wedding because I rented another dress that was lighter and more flowy - better for the heat. This dress was gorgeous though, I will definitely plan to rent again! Slightly on the slimmer side although not particularly fitted. Beautiful fabric and colors, almost ankle length

Gorgeous Dress. Wrong fit.

This dress is beautiful. The crochet lace like overlay is so gorgeous. There's even a slight pink hue to the white. But if you have a larger chest/shoulders or trunk you'll have to size up so it'll make your hips huge. I tried convincing myself to wear the dress and my family talked me out, thankfully. Basically this dress is for small chested people, it'll hide their hips if they have any too.

Even prettier in person

Beautiful fabric with green, grey, blush pink and black - something you can't see well from the photos! This dress is beautiful and fits just like on the model.....it doesn't have a TON of shape to it, but it's really nice and comfortable on. Definitely a heavier fabric but would look nice in summer or winter. The straps were too short for my shoulders but I tucked them in and plan to wear it strapless to a wedding next weekend.

This dress is pretty but very heavy & long. It is not forgiving at the zipper so sizing down will not work.

The most comfortable dress!

This dress is absolutely stunning! I ordered the 6R and 4R and wound up wearing the 4. I found the dress to run on the bigger side. Such a comfortable dress and received so many compliments!

Loves this dress. Perfect length, intricate details, and gorgeous overall. It is heavy so keep that in mind. I am 140 Lbs, 5'5 and the 6 fit perfectly. I think it could work for fall,spring or summer!

Comfortable and Unique!

I adored this dress! Got tons of compliments and felt fantastic in it. It was very comfortable; I was able to navigate a wedding with my two children in this dress and never felt like my movement was restricted in any way. The detailing is gorgeous. I especially loved the leaves along the neckline and back. The colors are pretty as well - pink, green, tan, and black. I worried that the length and shape would overwhelm my petite frame, but it fit well and was very flattering. I tucked the straps into the dress to accentuate the details on the neckline more. They stayed put all night. Fabulous dress.

Eh... not great

Was not a fan of this dress. It felt like I was wearing drapery and had a difficult fit. My husband, who never says anything negative, told me not to wear it. Men...

Beautiful fit and dress!

It reads more pink and green in person, from the pictures I was under the impression it had gold tones. It was a little longer than expected on me and the straps were too long for me so I wore as a strapless dress.

Beautiful dress

The details of the dress are beautiful. Like others have said it's less gold than it appears online but the colors are beautiful and unique. It fit true to size, but there is no give in the top part. I go between an 8 and 10 but there's no stretch in the top part of the dress so I had to wear the 10.

Perfect for fall wedding

As others have said, photos don't do this dress justice. The leaves are very detailed. The fabric is thick so it hides the mommy pooch belly. I love that this dress isn't full length, so it was perfect for an outdoors fall wedding. Highly recommend. Got so many compliments!

Wanted to love but too long for my 5'3" frame

Fell in love with this dress and rented it for a fall wedding but after trying it on was disappointed. It ran large in the waist but tight in my bust (which is smaller than most (34A) and was just too long to be flattering. It hit just above the floor so would be ankle length on taller women. The dress was made well though and the colors were beautiful!

Lots of compliments and a great fit!

I had my eye on this dress since the beginning but was worried the overlay would look cheap. Decided to go for it and I'm so glad I did! The embroidery was heavy and fantastic quality. The colors are more pink and green in person, but doesn't look too bright. I'm very busty and the 12 was flattering without being too revealing. It's a heavier weight dress, so I would recommend it for a late Fall event (probably too hot for spring/summer). First time with RTR and I will be back!

Beautiful dress

This dress didn't fit (18 would have, but I couldn't get the zipper past the waist). This is a truly beautiful dress and I wish it had fit! It was a risk to get a 16 given the style. Didn't work this time! This hit right above my ankles, but would look great with high heeled sandals!

I got compliments all night in this stunning dress! It looks much better on than on the hanger. My only note is that it was more full length on me than midi - I'm 5'4. But looked great either way

Such a beautiful dress

Cannot say enough about the material. The dress I received was moderately worn, with a little bodice boning poking out. The zipper is unreal...I was by myself trying this on and almost cried trying to get it off. All that aside...I still wanted to buy it. It's that uniquely beautiful! The 10 was clearly too big, and sadly, even the better fitting 8 just didn't look good on me, but that may be more of a reflection of my own body issues vs. reality.
