Perfect dress for a baby shower!
Super cute dress to wear to my friend's baby shower. It has pockets and the back is neat with the bands/ cut outs. My info has changed and at the time I was 5'9, 145 lbs., 34D if that helps with sizing questions.

Great print
Very fun and cute dress. The 4 fit ok, but I went with the 2 so the top didn't slide down as much. I did have to pull it up throughout the night, and some of the wire from the front of the dress stuck into my skin occasionally, but those were my only complaints. I loved the pockets and the open back was really different - you'll definitely need a Nubra or backless bra.

Cute summer dress but didn't stay up
The dress was very cute. The pattern is bright and great for summer. But it didn't stay up well. I had to pull it up a lot but I am small in the chest area.

So comfortable!
This dress was very comfortable. The pockets were wonderful and back cut outs had just enough to make you feel sexy in it. True to size. No need for a bra.

So cute!!
Love this dress!! My original dress got returned damaged but RTR helped me get another dress. I couldn't be happier with how it worked. Colors are gorgeous, fit perfectly. Didn't need a bra which is crazy. Loved it!

Beautiful colors and great fit
I wore this dress for a summer wedding and it was perfect. The colors were so pretty, the fit was very flattering and it has pockets! The top might be a bit snug for girls with a fuller bust (I'm a 34C and it was a bit tight) the top has a lot of structure though so I didn't even need a bra. The fabric is very quality so the dress keeps its shape and didn't wrinkle. Loved it!

My husband loved this dress! ;)
The back of this dress is super cute and the pink print was perfect for a summer wedding. I ended up wearing the 4 because the 2 was snug in the bust - this dress is not for women with cup sizes larger than a C. The picture isn't the greatest, but it's the only one I have that shows (most of) the dress.

Beautiful and colorful floral pattern with awesome back openings. Very well made and it has pockets!
I loved this dress!! It was perfect for my friends' rustic wedding. I wore the smaller size and it was still a bit big especially in the bust, which usually isn't an issue for me. I did purchase the backless bra that was recommended and it is awesome. It has adhesive side tabs. I totally recommend it. Besides being a bit large on top the dress was comfortable a great length and I got a lot of compliments on it. And best of all it has pockets!! I also rented the ring and bracelet and they were also a big hit.

Cute dress!! Love pockets!
I wore this to a concert, the pockets were very convenient. May have been a little to dressy for the occasion but I was able to dress it down. I got so many compliments! It fit true to size. It did slip down from time to time and need adjusting. It was a little rough around the edges and I could tell it had been worn. Other then that really fun, beautiful summer dress!

Great wine tasting dress
I wore this for a wine tasting bachelorette party. Was very comfy in the hot weather. Very pretty print in person. Overall fit was true to size but I only gave 3 stars because I wasn't crazy about how the bottom half of dress ballooned out making that whole area look bigger. The bust is definitely snug. I'm a small B cup normally, but had C cup post baby bust which barely fit into the top. If you're a bigger bust but a smaller size in comparison I'd opt for another dress.

I am usually a size 8 because I have bigger hips but my upper body is smaller. I wore a size six and it worked well! The size eight was too loose on top.

Fun and flirty
I wore this cute number for my bachelorette weekend in AC. The 2 fit best, but I didn't want to be restricted after a big dinner and dancing the night away so I opted to wear the 4. In truth, the 2 would have been perfect as the cotton fabric did stretch out a bit after shakin' it on the dance floor for a few hours. The pockets and cut-outs in the back were perfect details and a stick-on backless bra did wonders!

Very pretty and summery dress!
I wore this to rehearsal dinner for a friend's wedding. I loved it and got a lot of compliments, but it runs really big. I should've ordered a 0 instead of a 2. The top part runs really large and you can't wear a bra because of the opening in the back. Wish it had a build in bra. Otherwise, I loved the fun and bright colors.

This dress was amazing and the colors made it perfect for a summer wedding!
The dress does run a little large as other reviews have stated. I ordered a 4 (my normal size) and a 2 and decided to wear the 4 because it fit perfectly around the chest although there was a little room around the waist. I'm 5'10" and the dress hit mid thigh which was perfect. This dress was comfortable and had pockets and cut-outs which were fun accents! Overall I was sad to see this dress go!

hey! where did you get your shoes/what brand are they? Thanks!

The shoes are Jeffrey Campbell! I got them about a year ago but they're a great height and really comfortable.

Huge!
I was really looking forward to wearing this dress but it runs extremely large. I would need at least one, maybe two sizes smaller to be able to wear this dress comfortably. It's so cute but the sizing is way off!

Great dress, better for casual events.
The dress runs really large and has a more "casual" feel to it that I thought it would. This would work great for a daytime, outdoor event. I loved the pattern and the cutouts on the back. I originally got the dress as an alternate for a rehearsal dinner but it looked a little too casual so I wore it for my birthday dinner the following week (love the long term rental!).

Very pretty dress, needed a smaller size.
Very pretty dress. Consider ordering a size down. I wore this to my jack & Jill shower, I'll admit this was my first RTR Order, so i didn't pay to much attention to size. I ordered a 4 and a 6. Both were too big. I should have gotten a 2. I wore the 4 and had it pinned. I'm 5'4, 34DD, 26 waist, With the pretty back cut out, you can't really wear a bra, but the style of the dress, has almost a fitted corset top, so if you order the right size, throw on a couple "chicken cutlets" you're set.

Pretty and springy
I wore this to a friends wedding and got tons of compliments - I usually wear a 4 and ended up wearing the 2, so I'd say size down for your back up.

Great dress for beach wedding
Loved the dress -- looks exactly as appears in pictures. Only problem was that the dress was a bit too big and I needed both fashion tape and a safety pin to keep the dress up. Overall -- would definitely recommend despite sizing issue.

Cute, unique, amazing fit!
I loved the bright colors and the fit of this dress! I worried about the back because I have a fair sized chest and haven't gone without a bra in years. But, the dress was so fitted and comfortable that it was easy! I rarely had to pull it up. The colors are great and the neckline wasn't super revealing. I would rent again! Only complaint was that boning on the right side came through the material a bit and poked me a few times. Other than that minor issue, dress was in perfect condition.

Fun dress, runs a bit large. Make sure u have some cutlets if you're not well-endowed cleavage-wise!
Ran a bit large, but I think it may just have been stretched due to normal wear and tear. I chose to wear size 2 and definitely needed padding to fill out the chest which helped the dress to stay up.

Beautiful pattern for a spring wedding
I loved the colors and pattern of this dress but the fit wasn't my favorite. I think it runs a tad large in the bust, and the bottom half awkwardly poofs out. However I loved the back cut out details and the pockets. I also rented the Kate Spade Belle Fleur necklace which complimented the strapless neckline well. It was great for a spring wedding...the heavy cotton material is not too formal but I think it can be dressed up or down.

This dress isn't made for busty ladies.
The dress fit fabulously in the waist and hips, but it did not fit me in the bust (I am a 32DD). I could zip it up fine, but it squished my top into a hot mess!

Great for a semi-formal event.
I wore this dress for a company "Luau" themed party. Very bright, great for the occasion! The dress was a little bit big and wrinkled easily, but was fine for a semi-formal event. One of the underwires kept poking out which was really frustrating, but easily fixed with fashion tape.

I wore this dress for a bridal shower. I wore the 0 and it was still a little big. It was very vibrant, pictures don't do it justice. It was fun for the occasion and I got tons of compliments.

Super cute, colorful dress for a rehearsal dinner in Newport!
I got this as my back-up dress for a wedding and loved both dresses but the other was more formal so I wore this one to the rehearsal dinner. The colors were really pretty and the dress was comfortable. I had to wear a strapless bra because the top felt a little big without it and it did show through the cutout in the back but it wasn't too noticeable and probably couldn't been adjusted with dress tape if I had any with me.

Sent it back
This dress didn't fit at all. I put "runs small" but I wish I could've picked both "runs small" and "runs large." The top was disproportionately small and the area right below the waist bulged out in the center. It looked like there was an intertube around my waist. Very weird and obviously not what I was going for. I don't know anyone who would have such proportions. I tried both the 4 and the 6 and the same problem was present in both. Too bad because it was such a cute dress online!

Wore this dress to watch a friend play at the Grand Ole Opry- it was perfect! I'm a D cup, so usually feel too uncomfortable to go braless, but the structure and fit of this dress was just right. Highly recommend this dress!

Such a colorful and fun dress!
This dress is so beautiful in person! The colors really stand out. It was a perfect spring dress! In my opinion this dress runs a bit small, especially in the hip area. The 2 was a little tight in the the hips and bunched up a little in the back. Also, there is a built in bustier in the dress that makes you stand up nice and straight and makes it totally fine not to wear a bra :) Other than that the dress was great!
