Really cute but runs small
I usually wear a size 4-6 in dresses and the small was quite snug (could barely zip/breathe) I'm sending it back to exchange for the medium!

RTR Team Review
Love this color for summer. This dress runs true to size. The waist fits nicely and the cut outs show the perfect amount of skin. Includes boning in the bodice with enough room for smaller chests to wear a bra. I am on the shorter side, 5'2" and the length hiss my calves.

Fun dress worn for a wedding!
I wore this dress to a destination wedding in Punta Cana. I received many compliments! I didn't need to wear a bra, but I would suggest a sticky (backless) bra due to the cut out in the back. The dress was perfectly snug to my body! Also a GREAT dress for dancing!

Super fun dress. Very unique.
I loved wearing this dress and the skirt is really fun to dance in. The top was a little gappy at the bottom, probably because I'm smaller chested but in hindsight I would have benefitted from using some double stick tape to hold the top in place because I was fidgeting with it quite a bit. The citron color is bright, like really bright. I paired it with an electric blue peep toe and scarf since it was chilly. Also, because the fabric is somewhat satiny, the solid panel across the lower stomach shows everything so the right undergarments are key and I had to keep my tummy tight all night. Probably could have worn spanx and been fine. Overall, a really great dress though.

I returned this dress. Too small across the bust.
This dress isn't meant for busty women with a small waist. I couldn't wear the XS or the Small so I had to send them both back. I couldn't have gotten a larger size, then the bottom would have been too big.

Perfect for the Derby!
I loved the color and cut of this dress. The fabric is sturdy and heavy and maintains shape, however, I had issues with it always looking kind of wrinkled. And I steamed the hell out of it, but it just has that 'not flat' appearance on the skirt. I am a 36D and the top part of the large kept inching down. The medium fit my waist fine but I couldn't get the top part zipped. I have a 29" waist and wide ribs, plus the boobs. So, I had to go with the large and keep pulling it up. You can also see it was a bit bunchy around the waist, but I made it work. Hit just below my knee and I'm 5'8". The color is great and the medium I got still had a tag on it!

The dress was perfect for a spring wedding. I loved the bright color!
I went with the small, and while the bottom zipper was a great fit, the top was a little loose. I have a small chest, so the top would slip down in the back, I was wearing a bra to give the girls a boost and sometimes the strap showed. If you don't wear a bra, it's totally an option as there is some boning to keep it up. I got lots of compliments on the dress all night. Loved the cutouts and it gave the dress a sexy vibe while still being modest. The dress is very bright and the material is thicker than what I thought it would be. Kind of like a pleather, but not. (I thought it would be more like a cloth.) However, none of that mattered. This dress is perfect for a spring and summer wedding.

Love this dress! I got so many compliments on it throughout the night.
Pros: beautiful color, great details, Cons: runs small in the chest, which is why I wore the large.

Lovely dress; great for a morning wedding in May!
I received so many compliments about this dress from guests at the wedding, employees at the venue, and even from the bride and groom! The fabric is beautiful and the cut-out in the back is fun. The dress was a little bigger than I expected (since I had read other reviews that the waist ran small) but it fit great and was absolutely gorgeous! Since my breasts are smaller, I did wear a bra, but it is not necessary and since I am shorter than the model, the dress was tea length rather than just below the knee. This was my first experience with RTR, it was so great, and I will definitely use them again!

Brother's wedding in Waikiki!
I say it runs large...I am 34B so not much to work with up there! It was just a tiny bit loose..., but still looked great. I wish I had invested in fashion tape to hold the top in place. I paired with turquoise Kendra Scott bracelet and earrings, and gold Kate Spade bangles. I wore to a Derby party and my brother's wedding in Hawaii. Honestly I have never had SO MANY compliments on a dress. I didn't want to return it!!!

So many compliments!!
Let me start by saying that I loved this dress and received compliments all night! However, it does hit in an odd place and when you move certain ways it pinches the exposed skin. It was perfect for a summer wedding and the color was very fun (especially in a sea of LBD). Would have kept it if I could have!

Beautiful and classy!
I am obsessed with this dress! Received so many compliments from friends and random people. I even had a woman come up to me and asked to take a picture of me b/c she loved my dress so much. I wore this to a horse race and it was the perfect occasion to wear the dress to. I wish they had an XXS. I have a shorter torso so on the front, you can't see the cutouts as much. It does fit true to size; I am just smaller framed. But the XS worked out fine as well. LOVE RTR!

RUNS INSANELY SMALL. Lime Yellow Color
I live in a size 6. All designer brands I am a size 6. I am thin but 5'10 with broad swimmer shoulders. I am a 36A and I could not even fit in a M. I would have needed an XL to get is zipped comfortably. Also the Yellow is more a lime yellow but still very cute

Pop of color
I wouldn't normally have worn a small but this fit like a glove. I didn't wear a bra and did a ton of dancing with no issues. I loved how the dress wasn't too short but had a lot of volume at the bottom. I got a few compliment and loved wearing this dress!! Very classy!!

Beautiful color and cut! Slight design flaw
The color and cut of this dress were really beautiful! The skirt had the perfect amount of flare. The only issue with this dress was the zipper for the top part. It was only about a 3 inch zipper, but did not have a hook and eye or any kind of clasp so the entire night I was constantly pulling it up so I didn't lose my top! Other than that, this dress was really stunning, very stand out.

Bright & Fun!
Love the style of this dress, cute and different. Only complaint is that I was kind of in between sizes - the xs was way too small and wouldn't even zip up, but the top part of the small kept sliding so I felt like I had to keep pulling it up all night (maybe bra inserts might have helped make it tighter, but I didn't have any at the time).

Beautiful but.....Too small and not enough support in the bust.
I should have known! Dresses like this never fit me, but I saw a couple positive reviews of people who said they have full busts. <sigh> I am normally a 4 but often a 6, especially due to my bust (34 DD). Neither fit in the bust. I couldn't close the 4 (in the bust), but even the 6 smashed me down so it looked like I was wearing a sagging sports bra. This would be perfect for a small-medium (perky) busted woman. The dress is beautiful and I wish it would have worked, but sadly I had to return it.

Great color!
It was a fun dress to rent for a summer wedding. I really loved the color and it was great for twirling :) I was glad I rented up one size, dress was a little tight on the waist for me. Although this made it a little too big in the bust. Still was able to wear a strapless bra though and helped fill dress out. I would highly recommended the dress!!

Really run dress0 great for Derby
rented this for a Kentucky Derby Party and it was a hit, I got compliemtns all night! I have never wore something with cut-outs before, but I had just lost a bunch of weight and thought it would be a fun to try. The waist of the skirt fit perfectly. The top however was huge. Even with a strapless pushup bra underneath there was still alot of space and it did not stay up at all. I ended up tucking about an inch of the fabric in on the sides with pins so that it would stay up. Still, the top kept sliding down, so I never really got that cool side cut out look that the model picture has. The material of the dress was fantastic, really think with a bit of a shine to it. The color was a bit more tennis-ball yellow/green than lemon, but I knew that from other reviews. Overall the dress was great, I was generally comfortable in it all night and it was different and unique dress at the party.

I stood out in a sea of black tie dresses at a gala
Before I chose this dress, I had a stylist pick out a selection for me at the Chicago RTR store. This dress was the first one I tried on because I was terrified of how it looked on the hanger and wanted to get it out; but don't be afraid ladies! This dress gives you a gorgeous shape. The color is a little bit neon, but leans closer to a chartreuse rather than a yellow. I loved it on, and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to stand out at an event-- women I didn't even know came up to me to tell me how incredible this dress was!!

Perfect for a bridal shower!
Loved the quality of the material and the color was very vibrant! The dress fit at the waist but was too big on the top. I had to tape it to keep from falling down. If you have a tiny waist and large chest this would probably fit you better.

Unique design and amazing color for any formal event!
I rented this dress for a summer wedding. The ceremony was outdoors and the reception was inside but this dress was the perfect choice! The fabric was thick enough that I didn't have to worry about a bra and the length hit right below my knee for an appropriate length. I'm usually a small in dresses and shirts and the small fit perfect. The top did not give me any issues especially with the zipper which others reviewed about before. I received many compliments on the color and style and I wish I could have kept it! Even though it looks more yellow in pictures, the color is more chartreuse in person.

Super cute
This was sent to me as a free backup, so I didn't end up wearing this, but I did try it on and it was very cute. Def a great shape for hourglass/small waisted women. I would recommend wearing a sticky bra or some kind of strapless - the back is definitely wide enough to hide a bra.

I rented this for my rehearsal dinner--Yellow was a key color.
This came out a lot greener than I anticipated, and the color didn't really work with my fair skin. It fit ok, but ran pretty small. I've got a long waist so it was a little finnicky there as well. Good quality though!

Perfect derby dress!
Wore to a Derby party. Got tons of compliments. Medium was a little big- especially in the top (and I'm not small on top) The top of the small fit perfectly but the bottom was too tight to be comfortable. I used double sided body tape to help hold the skirt in place since it's the top that holds the whole dress up which was loose. Once I figured out how to keep everything in place it was perfect!

Lovely Yellow! So many compliments!
I am a huge fan of RTR and have been renting dresses for ages from them and this dress caught my eye a year ago. So glad I rented it! The dress was perfect for The Derby party I attended. The fabric is substantial and fully lined. It is even a bit on the heavy side because it is constructed so well. The yellow color is almost a chartreuse and is brilliant in person. The length is perfect and ladylike. So pretty and sophisticated. I will say that if you are unsure of size go up. The S was a nice fit and I am 5'5" and no bra necessary. So many compliments I cannot say enough great things about this stunning dress!

Fun Derby dress!
Loved this dress! Rented this for the Kentucky Derby and was very happy with my choice. The bright yellow was great and the fabric was high end feeling. Great fit for a pear shaped girl. I wore a strapless bra without a problem.

Dress was perfect for a destination beach wedding in Cancun!
The dress fit well, it has no 'give' so it got tight as the night went on (with eating or drinking). I wore the XS because the S was too big. I am 117 pounds and wear a 34D cup. If you have smaller breasts, you will probably need some sticky pads or something. Also, the slits on the side are cute, but are really risky if you have any extra skin in that area. I was in danger of looking like a busted can of biscuits if I bent certain ways.....lol. Other than that, great dress!

It runs true to size but there is no give in this material making the waist and rib cage area tight. The color is bright and amazing! Would definitely rent again.

The dress was beautiful and material was great. The dress was not that comfortable and the top zipper kept coming undone because there was no hook. I first tried the medium but it was too small. Great dress for a short event such as a shower.
